Kaiba's Duel with Alister continues as Alister unleashes his ace monster. Faced with Alister's hatred and refusing to fail as Alister did, Kaiba stakes the fate of Mokuba and himself on one draw.


With phoned-in assistance, Mokuba manages to stabilize the plane and contact KaibaCorp to come to help. But the vision of the KaibaCorp choppers and planes enrages Alister, convincing him that Kaiba really is exactly like his step-father. The "Seal" breaks the plane's windows and damages the autopilot controls again. Alister empties Kaiba's field and hand and then Summons his ace monster, "Air Fortress Ziggurat", a monster based on the Dyna Dude action figure that Alister keeps as a memento of his brother. Despite the odds, Kaiba is able to bring out "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and counterattack with "Tyrant Wing". Kaiba claims that if he'd been in Alister's place, he'd definitely have done the impossible to save his brother. Alister, confident of his victory and the demise of all three of them, ends his turn early. Kaiba draws "The Fang of Critias" and fuses it with "Tyrant Wing" into "Tyrant Burst Dragon". Then he uses it to power up his "Blue-Eyes" into the "Blue-Eyes Tyrant Dragon" form to win the Duel with seconds to spare, and "The Seal of Orichalcos" claims Alister's soul. Moments before falling, he smiles after a look at Mokuba, seeing instead the brother that he protected so long ago.

Kaiba rushes to the controls after the Duel. His determination to save his brother calls the the Legendary Dragon in his deck and the three Legendary Dragons appear to help safely land the plane. Yami Yugi and Téa encounter Joey and Tristan, all four having witnessed the plane spectacle and rushed to the scene. The plane manages to land in one piece and Kaiba disembarks, surprised to meet Yami Yugi in a such a place. He declares that they might be "useful" for his purposes, after hearing from Roland, who lands with one of the choppers with bad news for Kaiba: Doma has bought the whole of the company and taken it over.

Meanwhile, a computer reports to Dartz that the takeover has been completed.

Featured cards[edit]

The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.

Differences in adaptations[edit]

  • Cut from the dub is a short scene where Roland orders the helicopters, saying they have to save Kaiba and Mokuba, and then a shot of the Kaiba Corp USA building.
  • Cut from the dub is a sequence of where Mokuba exclaims over Alister's monster, and stares up at it from behind his brother. Then Alister says this Monster is his trump Card, as a shot of his hand holding his brother Mikey's toy is superimposed over the Ziggurat.
  • Notably, the effect of "Tyrant Burst Dragon" is depicted as dramatically different in the dub. In the Japanese version, it can equip to a monster to increase that monster's ATK by 400 and allow it to attack all monsters the opponent controls. In the dub, Kaiba claims to fuse it with "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", creating "Blue-Eyes Tyrant Dragon". When "Tyrant Burst Dragon" was released in the TCG/OCG, its effect reflected the Japanese version, but "Blue-Eyes Tyrant Dragon" would later be released with a Summoning conditions and effects reflecting its use in this episode.
  • Also cut from the dub is a shot of "Air Fortress Ziggurat" exploding when Kaiba destroys it.


  • During this episode, Kaiba activates "Junk Dealer" in Alister's Graveyard thanks to the effect of "Magical Trick Mirror", and Special Summons "Judge Man" back from his own Graveyard. In the English anime, probably due to a mistake in translation, Seto declares "Judge Man" comes back in Defense Position to protect [Seto's] Life Points. However this is clearly not the case, as when Alister's "Air Fortress Ziggurat" attacks "Judge Man" Seto is shown to lose 1900 LP in battle damage, bringing his total to 100 Life Points.
  • Due to another translation error, Alister said "Toy Robot Box" required him to discard three cards but he only needed to discard one.
