"The Dark Spirit Revealed, Part 1", known as "First Duel in the Sky - Yugi vs. Dark Bakura" in the Japanese version, is the eighty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. It first aired in Japan on November 27, 2001, and in the United States on September 6, 2003.
Yugi Muto and Bakura are randomly selected as the first two Duelists and the Stratos Dueling Arena is revealed to be the location of the quarterfinals. The other passengers and duelists watch on the sidelines. Yami Yugi suspects that Bakura is actually Yami Bakura and once they reach the arena he demands that he reveal himself, which Yami Bakura does so accordingly. Yugi appears to have an advantage when he quickly removes nearly all of Bakura's Life Points, but he was actually being manipulated. Bakura plays "Dark Sanctuary", which engulfs the whole arena in a dark atmosphere with giant eyes.

Turn 8: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws "Dark Magician Girl". He then Tributes "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" in order to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician Girl" (2000/1700) in Attack Position. Yami Yugi then activates his face-down "Magic Formula" to equip the latter to "Dark Magician Girl" and increase her ATK by 500 (Dark Magician Girl": 2000 → 2500/1700). "Dark Magician Girl" then attacks and destroys "Dark Necrofear" (Yami Bakura 450 → 150). Because "Dark Necrofear" was sent to the Graveyard, Yami Bakura activates "Dark Sanctuary".
