"The Elf Warriors!!" is the seventeenth chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga. It was first printed in Japan on August 20, 2005 in the V Jump magazine. It was later reprinted in volume 2 of Yu-Gi-Oh! R.

Ted's Beasts are opposed by Gekko's "Elves" as Ted builds up an advantage.

Featured Duel: Gekko Tenma vs. Ted Banias[edit]

Duel continues from the previous chapter.

Turn 2: Gekko
Gekko activates "Graceful Charity", drawing three cards and discarding two from his hand. He then Normal Summons "Learning Elf" (1400/1600) in Defense Position and Sets two cards.

Turn 3: Ted
Ted Sets a card. He then Normal Summons "Speed Jaguar" (1000/800) in Attack Position. "Spike Rhinoceros" attacks "Learning Elf", but Gekko activates his face-down "Mirror Barrier", equipping it to "Learning Elf" and preventing it from becoming an attack target. Ted activates his face-down "Hand-to-Hand Combat", negating "Mirror Barrier" until the end of the Damage Step. "Learning Elf" is destroyed. "Speed Jaguar" attacks directly, with its effect doubling the battle damage (Gekko 4000 → 2000). The effect of "Learning Elf" activates, letting Gekko draw a card.

Turn 4: Gekko
Gekko activates a second "Graceful Charity", drawing three cards and discarding two from his hand. He then Sets two cards and Normal Summons "Thoroughbred Elf" (1800/1500) in Attack Position. He equips it with "Spirit Slayer", increasing its ATK by 500, to 2300. Ted activates his face-down "Shadow Spell", preventing "Thoroughbred Elf" from attacking and decreasing its ATK by 700, to 1600.

Turn 5: Ted
Ted Tributes his two monsters to Normal Summon "Assault Lion" (2600/2500) in Attack Position. He equips it with "Medicine Eater", increasing its ATK and DEF by that of the Tributed "Speed Jaguar" and giving it that card's effect. Its ATK and DEF becomes 3100 and 2900, respectively. "Assualt Lion" attacks "Thoroughbred Elf", but Gekko activates his face-down "Amulet of Affection", equipping it to "Thoroughbred Elf" and reducing the battle damage to zero. Ted's Set card is "Stop Defense".

Duel continues in the next chapter.
