"Marvelous Armed Division!!", titled "Menacing Armed Division!!" in the Japanese version, is the sixth chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga. It was first printed in Japan on September 21, 2004 in the V Jump magazine. It was later reprinted in Volume 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh! R.

In the next block, Yugi is challenged by the next card professor, Kirk Dixon.

Summary[edit]

The man in military garb walks towards Dark Yugi, musing that his friends are always watching over him when he fights. According to him, the Card Professors don't understand it, but he hears that Yugi is a lot tougher with his friends around. He comments that they need to exclude such uncertain factors, and Dark Yugi realizes that the bobby trap was the man's doing; the man finally introduces himself as Kirk Dixon with a salute. Kirk says that Yugi's friends were easy prey and walked right into the first trap - and would have found a lot more had they made it further. When Dark Yugi doesn't respond, Kirk adds that he must be in a hurry and prepares to start the Duel, asking with a nasty grin if Yugi can't fight without his little friends.

Still kneeling on the floor, Dark Yugi asks where Jonouchi and Honda are. Kirk answers that he isn't sure what leads where with all the security traps in the building - in his opinion, they would end up in the garbage room where they "belong". Dark Yugi loses his temper, refusing to let Kirk continue to insult his friends and declaring that he'll make Kirk pay with his defeat. The Duel begins, and Kirk thinks to himself that they'll see if Yugi can keep up with his "warrior deck".

Yugi starts, drawing, then Setting two cards, and Summoning "Alpha the Magnet Warrior" in Defense Position, ending his turn. Kirk snorts and plays his own face-down card, then Summons "Machina Soldier", and activates "Ties of the Brethren" from his hand, allowing him to pay 1000 Life Points to Special Summon "Machina Sniper" and "Machina Defender" from his Deck. Dark Yugi is shocked to see Kirk Summon three monsters in a single turn, but Kirk ends his turn there - none of his monsters can bring down "Alpha".

Dark Yugi draws, noting that neither of the two Special Summoned monsters can attack or be Tributed, and wonders what Kirk is doing. He Sets a second card, then Tributes "Alpha" to Summon "Dark Magician Girl". She attacks "Machina Defender" with her "Black Burning" spell, and Kirk activates his Set "Intruder Alarm - Yellow Alert", allowing him to Special Summon his 2700 ATK "Caterpillar Tank" from his hand and redirect the attack to it. Commenting that he hates to see a lovely magician perish so quickly, he has "Caterpillar Tank" counterattack with "Buster Cannon". Dark Yugi saves his "Magician" with "Spellbinding Circle", preventing the counterattack, and reducing the "Tank's" ATK by 700. At the end of the Battle Phase, "Caterpillar Tank" returns to Kirk's hand.

Kirk begins his next turn by Summoning "Commander Covington", which raises his hand as the parts of the three "Machina" combine into the massive four-armed, four-legged "Machina Force". The ATK and DEF of "Machina Force" are the total of its combined parts - 4600 and 4100 respectively - but Kirk must pay 1000 Life Points to attack. Kirk does so, and as "Machina Force" attacks with "Machine Knuckle", the attack stops before it can connect - Dark Yugi has activated a face-down card, "Spellbinding Illusion". This negates "Covington's" ability and reduces its ATK by 500, and the negated effect also causes "Machina Force" to de-fuse.

On Dark Yugi's turn, he activates "Diffusion Wave-Motion", paying 1000 Life Points himself so that his "Dark Magician Girl" can attack all of Kirk's monsters each. Kirk is horrified as his army is destroyed by "Dark Magician Girl", whose "Super Magic Wave Bullets" reduces his Life Points to zero.

Shellshocked, Kirk drops his cards as well as the key card, looking at his hands in disbelief. As Dark Yugi claims victory, Kirk stands on another booby trap that launches him into a trash can. Dark Yugi remarks that Kirk fell into his own trap as he walks toward the key card - the Millennium Puzzle glows, and Yugi temporarily switches in, confident in where they're headed. Dark Yugi agrees, taking back over has he picks up the key card, eager to face Yako.

Meanwhile, as Jonouchi and Honda climb a flight of stairs, Kirk falls out of the trash chute into a dumpster, much to their surprise.

Featured cards[edit]

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

Notes[edit]

  1. In the TCG/OCG, "Spellbinding Circle" has no effect on the target's ATK.
  2. In the TCG/OCG, the effect of "Commander Covington" being negated would not affect "Machina Force", as it had already been Summoned.
  3. In the TCG/OCG, "Diffusion Wave-Motion" affects only monsters of Level 7 and higher. Dark Magician Girl" is Level 6, so it would not be a valid target.
