"The Facility, Part 2", known as "Feelings Towards the Cards! Crystal Skull Vs. Great Cattle Demon" in the Japanese version, is the seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It aired in Japan on May 14, 2008.

Disgusted by Tanner speaking ill of Yanagi's cards and stomping on them, Yusei Duels Tanner using Yanagi's Deck, in order to teach him that no card is truly unneeded (in the dub he wanted to teach him what respect really means).


At the center[edit]

Yusei stands across from Tanner ready to duel him. Tanner's followers don't believe Yusei can win with Yanagi's cards. Yanagi is a bit unsure himself, but Yusei tells Yanagi to just make sure to watch. Yanagi remembers the Crimson Dragon rising over the Duel stadium and asks, "Just who are you?" Tanner starts the Duel ready to teach Yusei a lesson.

In the Japanese version; Yusei tells Yanagi that it is a duelist's duty to breath life into cards by breathing. If cards have felt pain by being stepped on, then imparting joy into them is also a duelist's duty.

Yanagi recognizes Yusei's hand as the same one he had. He warns Yusei not to play "Crystal Skull" as it resulted in him taking 1000 damage, but Yusei ignores him and plays it. Tanner's followers start laughing, but Yusei reverses the damage with "Curse Reflection Doll" reversing the damage to Tanner. Yusei explains the same "Crystal Skull" that got trashed for being useless has gained strength by drawing from its friends.

One of Tanner's supporters tries to assure Tanner that that was luck, but Tanner insists that it was skill. In the Japanese he says that it has gotten him psyched up for the Duel. In the English, he says that the pro Duels has taught him how to spot a good opponent and Yusei seems to know what he's doing. Yusei ends his turn. Tanner manages to Summon "Giant Ushi Oni" and quickly inflict damage to Yusei.

Yusei continues to start his moves similar to Yanagi, resulting in the watchers mocking him. Tanner keeps them quiet, as he sees sense to Yusei's moves. Yusei manages to hold off Tanner's attacks. Yusei's skill reminds Tanner of when he was a pro duelist.

Yusei puts faith in Yanagi's cards in an attempt to draw the card needed to win the Duel. Yusei draws "Piri Reis Map" and smiles. After playing it, he gathers all the cards needed to play "Triangle O". He than plays it, winning the Duel.

Tanner's followers rush to him, while Yanagi leaps on Yusei to kiss him. Tanner congratulates Yusei and asks his name. He then apologises to Yanagi for stepping on his cards. He tells Yusei that he'd like to take him to the pro world and shakes his hand.

Two guards arrive telling Yusei that he is to see the chief.

Goodwin & Jack[edit]

Rex shows Jack the Nazca Lines.

Mr. Armstrong, who is monitoring the duel from an office calls Rex Goodwin who tells Armstrong to continue his surveillance. Goodwin then informs Jack that Yusei has started a Duel.

He then leads Jack to a room he has never shown him before. Here he tells Jack the legend of the Signers; Jack's dragon-shaped birthmark represents the wings of the Crimson Dragon. The Public Security Maintenance Bureau is merely a temporary form. They are those who inherited people of the stars power to bring security to the public. All who have sworn loyalty to the name Iliaster, govern all things controlling society. Rex reveals himself to be the 360th Guardian of the Star. Iliaster started roughly 3,000 years ago in the Andes in South America.

Rex raises his hand causing the scenery to change to an ancient Inca civilization. The People of the Stars started a culture, the Stairway to the Dragon Star, and worshiped the Dragon Star as a God. All their knowledge from the Dragon Star was passed down to them through their ruler, the Star Dragon King. Wicked Disturbances often threatened the people. As a result the King prayed to the God for salvation. The God responded by sending the Crimson Dragon sealing the evil in the Earth.

Goodwin raises his hand again changing the scenery, so he and Jack stand in mid-air above the Nazca Lines. He explains that the evil had spread over the planet as time passed. He lists some social and economic problems in the world and says that New Domino is the only remaining Utopia. The Wicked Gods sealed in the Nazca are soon to be revived. He has searched for the summoner of the Crimson Dragon to protect humanity, the Signer with the dragon birthmark. Jack rolls up his sleeve and glares at his birthmark. In the Japanese, he says, "So you mean this birthmark... is it me?" In the English, he says, "So I'm supposed to save the world? Why didn't you say so?"

Tanner's flashback[edit]

Tanner's state after retiring from pro dueling. (This scene was excluded in the dub.)

Tanner lost to Jack Atlas, who insulted him, saying he was a poor opponent and put up a weak duel. In the Japanese this caused Tanner to quit and take up underground dueling; He managed to win duels here, but getting involved in illegal dueling had bad effects on him, including alcoholism.

In the English dub, Tanner's alcoholism and drug problems were only implied as he stated "It was all downhill from there", indicating that those events occurred after he lost to Jack.

Featured Duel: Tanner vs. Yusei Fudo[edit]

Yusei vs. Bolt.

Turn 1: Tanner
Tanner Normal Summons "Jirai Gumo" (2200/100) in Attack Position. Tanner Sets two cards.

Turn 2: Yusei
Yusei's hand contains "Ashoka Pillar", "Stonehenge", "Spirit Mask", "Curse Reflection Doll" and "Crystal Skull". Yusei draws "Triangle O". Yusei Normal Summons "Crystal Skull" (0/0) in Defense Position. As "Crystal Skull" was Summoned, its effect activates, inflicting 1000 damage to the player who Summoned it. As a card effect is about to inflict damage, Yusei activates "Curse Reflection Doll" to make that damage become 0 and inflict damage to Tanner equal to the amount of damage that would have been inflicted. The effect of "Crystal Skull" resolves (Tanner: 4000 → 3000 LP).

Turn 3: Tanner
Tanner draws "Ushi Oni". Tanner Tributes "Jirai Gumo" to Tribute Summon "Ushi Oni" (2150/1950) in Attack Position. Tanner Tributes "Ushi Oni" to Special Summon "Giant Ushi Oni" (2600/2100) in Attack Position from his hand by its own procedure. "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks and destroys "Crystal Skull". As "Giant Ushi Oni" destroyed Yusei's monster by battle, its effect activates, allowing it to attack again in a row. "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks directly (Yusei: 4000 → 1400 LP).

Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei Normal Summons "Ashoka Pillar" (0/2200) in Defense Position. When this card is destroyed, its controller will take 2000 damage. Yusei activates the Equip Spell "Stonehenge" to revive "Crystal Skull" (0/0) in Defense Position as its ATK is 0. As "Crystal Skull" was Summoned, its effect activates (Yusei: 1400 → 400 LP). Yusei Sets a card.

Turn 5: Tanner
Tanner's Set cards are "Trap Hole" and "Spiderweb Castle". Tanner draws "Nobleman of Crossout". "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks "Ashoka Pillar". As Tanner's monster declared an attack on a monster, Yusei activates his face-down "Totem Pole" and activates its effect, negating the attack. As Yusei activated a Trap Card, Tanner activates his face-down "Spiderweb Castle", whose effect will halve the ATK of all of Yusei's attacking monsters. Tanner Sets a card. Tanner's Set cards are "Trap Hole" and "Mirror Force".

Turn 6: Yusei
Yusei draws "Piri Reis Map" and and subsequently activates it to add "Cabrera Stone" from his Deck to his hand due to its ATK being 0. If Yusei Summons the monster that he added via "Piri Reis Map", his Life Points will be halved. Yusei Normal Summons "Cabrera Stone" (0/0) in Attack Position (Yusei: 400 → 200 LP). When this card is destroyed, its controller will take 1000 damage.

As Yusei has "Crystal Skull", "Ashoka Pillar", and "Cabrera Stone" all present on his field, he activates "Triangle O" to destroy all cards on the field and make Tanner take any damage that would be inflicted by the effects of those destroyed cards. The effects of "Ashoka Pillar" and Cabrera Stone activate (Tanner: 3000 → 1000 → 1000 → 0 LP).

Differences in adaptations[edit]

  • In the English version when Rex Goodwin was telling Jack about Iliaster, the Crimson Dragon, and the people of the stars he made fun of those things at the end at the English dub he stopped. In the Japanese version he didn't show any interest nor made fun of them.
  • The scene where Tanner's ways went including his alcoholism were removed in the dub.
  • In the English version Iliaster is the power in the universe, energy and mankind binding them together: In the Japanese version it's a secret society.
  • Rex Goodwin mentions in the dub that the Crimson Dragon had some involvement with the Shadow Realm.


"Jirai Gumo" is placed upside-down on Tanner's Duel Disk in the dub.
