"A Duel to Remember", known as "Dial On! Roar Deformer Deck" in the Japanese version, is the thirteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on June 25, 2008 and in the US on December 6, 2008.

Yusei Fudo is left unconscious after his harsh Duel with Trudge. The twins Leo and Luna rescue him. After Yusei regains conscious, Leo demands a Duel with him. Meanwhile, Trudge waits outside in the hopes of capturing Yusei.

Much of the plot of this episode differs between the English dub and the original Japanese version. In the dub, Yusei has lost his memory after his crash and agrees to Duel Leo to try to get it back.


Inside Tops[edit]

Yusei lies unconscious on a couch inside a flower-decorated residence. Leo and Luna stand over him discussing his criminal mark, thinking they may be in trouble for aiding him. (In the dub, after debating, Luna attempts to investigate by listening to the cards in Yusei's Deck. She stated that the cards said that he's a very good person, but also very sad, leading the twins to debate as to why.) Yusei regains consciousness to see the twins right next to him, and then asks them who they are then Leo asks him if he remembers what happened last night. (In the dub, Leo and Luna tell him that they found him in the alleyway downstairs—he had wrecked his bike and wouldn't wake up, so they brought him up to their home.) When Yusei reaches for his Deck, Leo asks Yusei who he is. Yusei then introduces himself. (In the dub, Yusei has amnesia in this episode, only remembering how to Duel and maintain a Duel runner.)

Leo, knowing Yusei is a Duelist, asks if they can Duel. (In the dub, Leo tries a method he saw on T.V. to help Yusei remember his name.) Before Yusei makes a decision, a poster of Jack Atlas and some merchandise catch his eye. Leo mentions that he treasures his merchandise and that it is his dream to one day become King. Leo asks if Yusei is a fan of the King too; Yusei says that he doesn't (in the dub, Yusei agrees that Jack does mean something to him, but he doesn't know why). Since Yusei had a Duel Runner, Leo presumes that Yusei is a Turbo Duelist aiming to Duel Jack. When Yusei ignores him, Leo shows an invite to the Fortune Cup to Yusei, claiming that he has a chance to Duel the King (in the dub, he showed him the invitation to see if it jogs Yusei's memory). The invitations were supposedly sent out at random, and this one was given to Luna, who didn't want to enter, so Leo plans to enter impersonating her.

When Leo and Luna begin to fight, Yusei thanks them for their hospitality, but suggests that they are better off not getting involved with him (in dub, he instead says that the Fortune Cup doesn't ring any bells). He begins to leave, saying that he doesn't want to cause them any trouble. Determined to stop him from leaving (to help Yusei recover his memory in the dub), Leo grabs a Duel Disk and challenges Yusei to a Duel. Excited to Duel, Leo's Duel Disk slips down his arm. As Leo readjusts it, Yusei is reminded of Rally fixing something. Seeing a resemblance between the two, Yusei accepts. (In the dub, Yusei thought it might be a good idea after being reminded of Rally, even though he couldn't remember him.) Yusei disengages his Duel Disk from his Duel Runner and accepts the Duel.

Leo and Yusei Duel

Preparing to Duel outside, Yusei adjusts Leo's Duel Disk. When Yusei inquires about whether other people are around, Luna explains that they are on the top floor and that the twins are normally alone there, since their parents are almost always at work (on business trips in the dub). Yusei lets Leo go first.

In the dub, Yusei regains his memory during the Duel.

Yusei wins the Duel, causing Leo to start to cry. Yusei walks over to Leo to comfort him. Yusei gives some pointers to help Leo with his Dueling; he points out that Leo focused so much on just getting his four "Morphtronics" together, but wasn't prepared for the opponent disrupting his strategy. Leo then asks for another Duel (in the dub, Leo asks if Yusei gonna tell him who he is, Yusei replies that telling him and Luna is not such a good idea), but Yusei points to his criminal mark and says that he'll only cause them trouble by staying with them. Luna convinces Yusei to stay for the night.

After the twins fall asleep, Yusei sneaks out, leaving behind a note as well as Duel Disks for Leo and Luna which he modified to fit their small arms. (In the dub, he does not leave a note, as he maintains the belief that not knowing about his identity will keep the twins safe.)

Security Headquarters[edit]

Lazar informs Goodwin, that all the invitations but Yusei's have been sent out. He also briefs him in on Yusei's status, that he has recovered his Deck and Duel Runner and is currently hiding in Tops.

Outside Tops[edit]

Trudge argues with the guard

Trudge is trying to get into to the Tops residential area, where Yusei is now staying with Leo and Luna, but being a Satellite investigator, he requires authorization to conduct the investigation. A guard refuses to let Trudge in for this reason. Trudge is outraged saying that the Securities in the Tops area treat him like the Satellite scum. Trudge's assistant says that those type Securities flaunt about being native born. Knowing Yusei is in there, Trudge says they must find another way of capturing him.

Trudge and other Securities surround the area, to attempt to leave Yusei no escape. Blister secretly watches them.

Yusei's invitation and the photo of his friends

Night falls and Trudge remains waiting for him to come out. Eventually Yusei comes out and Trudge pulls his Duel Runner out in front of him. Before Trudge tries to cause trouble for Yusei, Lazar appears, identifying himself as head of special investigations. He has come to give Yusei a message from the director, Rex Goodwin. Trudge argues that Yusei stole the Duel Runner from the Security Warehouse, but Lazar reminds him it is in his best interest not to disobey the director's orders. Lazar hands Yusei a picture of his Satellite friends, Rally, Blitz, Tank and Nervin and an invitation to the Fortune Cup. Should he refuse to enter, the four in the picture would receive pain beyond his wildest imagination.

Featured Duel: Yusei Fudo vs. Leo[edit]

Turn 1: Leo
Leo draws "Morphtronic Celfon" and subsequently Normal Summons it (100/100) in Attack Position. Leo's hand contains "Factory of 100 Machines", "Scapegoat", "Morphtronic Magnen", "Pot of Avarice", and "Morphtransition". He then activates the Attack Position effect of "Morphtronic Celfon" to roll a die. The result is a three, so Leo checks the top three cards of his Deck. He finds "Morphtronic Magnen" among the picked up cards, so he Special Summons "Morphtronic Magnen" (800/800) in Attack Position and returns the remaining cards to his Deck. Leo Sets a card ("Morphtransition").

Turn 2: Yusei
Yusei draws "Speed Warrior" and subsequently Normal Summons it (900/400) in Attack Position. Yusei enters his Battle Phase and activates the effect of "Speed Warrior" to double the latter's ATK ("Speed Warrior": 900 → 1800/400). "Speed Warrior" attacks "Morphtronic Magnen", but Leo activates his face-down "Morphtransition" to negate the attack and switch "Morphtronic Magnen" to Defense Position. Due to the Defense Position effect of "Morphtronic Magnen", Yusei is forbidden from attacking another monster besides "Morphtronic Magnen" as an attack target. At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Speed Warrior" expires ("Speed Warrior": 1800 → 900/400).

Turn 3: Leo
Leo draws. He then Normal Summons another "Morphtronic Magnen" (800/800) in Defense Position, which forms an attack lock. Leo then activates the Attack Position effect of "Morphtronic Celfon" to roll a die. The result is a two, so Leo checks the top two cards of his Deck. He finds "Morphtronic Datatron" among the picked up cards, so he Special Summons "Morphtronic Datatron" (1200/600) in Attack Position and returns the remaining cards to his Deck.

Leo then activates "Gadget Box", which allows him to Special Summon a "Gadget Token" once per turn but it can't attack. If Leo uses this effect three times, "Gadget Box" will be destroyed. He activates the effect of "Gadget Box" to Special Summon a "Gadget Token" (0/0) in Attack Position. Leo then activates the Attack Position effect of "Morphtronic Datatron" to Tribute the "Gadget Token" and inflict 600 damage to Yusei (Yusei 4000 → 3400).

Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei draws "Card Rotator" and subsequently activates it to switch the Battle Positions of all monsters on Leo's side of the field by sending "Nitro Synchron" from his hand to the Graveyard; the two "Morphtronic Magnens" switch to Attack Position while "Celfon" and "Datatron" switch to Defense Position. Yusei then Normal Summons "Junk Synchron" (1300/500) in Attack Position. Yusei then activates the effect of "Junk Synchron" to Special Summon "Nitro Synchron" (300/100) from his Graveyard in Defense Position with its effects negated.

Yusei tunes "Speed Warrior" with "Junk Synchron" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" (2300/1300) in Attack Position. He then tunes "Junk Warrior" with "Nitro Synchron" to Synchro Summon "Nitro Warrior" (2800/1800) in Attack Position. "Nitro Warrior" attacks and destroys one "Morphtronic Magnen" (Leo 4000 → 2000). Yusei then activates the second effect of "Nitro Warrior" to switch "Morphtronic Celfon" to Attack Position and let "Nitro Warrior" attack it. "Nitro Warrior" then attacks and destroys "Morphtronic Celfon" (Leo 2000 → 0).

Differences in adaptions[edit]

  • In the Japanese version, Yusei didn't suffer amnesia. Yusei's flashback in the dub featured "Sonic Chick", "Speed Warrior", and "Quillbolt Hedgehog". Also, he tells Leo and Luna his name in the original, but can't remember it in the dub.
  • Luna's and Leo's personalities vary between the original and English dub. Originally, Ruka (Luna) did not have an attitude or outright insult Leo while Rua (Leo) originally did not behave in a foolish manner and was merely excited.
  • In the English version, again noticing Yusei's amnesia, he can't remember who Leo reminds him of when he sees him trying to adjust his Duel Disk to fit him. In the original however, he is compared to Yusei's friend, Rally.
  • In the original, it was Luna who did not know about the criminal mark so Leo explained it to her. However, in the dub, Leo was the one who didn't know and she had to explain it to him.
  • In the English dub, Leo said he was invited to the tournament until Luna corrected him, while in the original he said Luna was but she didn't want to.
  • In the English dub, Leo frequently makes references to things that he has seen on television when making a point. This is not heard in the original.
  • In the Japanese version, Rua (Leo) doesn't narrate the Duel.
  • In the English version, Leo claims to be "invisible" at some point during the Duel, and Luna corrects him by saying "Invincible". This is not present in the original.
  • In the Japanese version when Ushio (Trudge) protested to Yeager (Lazar), Yeager told Ushio it would be in his best interest not to disobey the director's order. In the English version, he told Trudge to back off and guard candles at a candle shop.


  • An animation error was visible for a brief second when Leo and Yusei started their Duel.
