Here's the final chapter, I think you'll be pleased. Also, I'll have one card that I'll make up in this Fic.

Previously on Yu-Gi-Oh:

Outside of the shadow realm fog, the others are standing near it.

Joey: this is not good. Our friends are stuck in there.

Kim: Yugi, will they be able to get out?

Yami Yugi: I'm not sure, if it is a team duel, only one team will get out. And if Ron is under the Spirit of the ring's control, then I have a feeling that no matter which team wins, one of us will lose a friend.

Kim: there's gotta be someway to snap Ron out of that rod's power, isn't there?

Joey: hey, yeah! Like the time Marik tried to control me, maybe you can save him Kim.

Kim: me?

Joey: yeah, it was because of my will and my friendship with Yugi that I was able to break free of the rod's power. Now it won't work on me anymore.

Kim: But if he's in there, how are we gonna get to him.

Yami Yugi: maybe if I use my millennium items, I could form a doorway for Kim to get through.

Tea: it's worth a shot.

Yami Yugi puts on the millennium necklace. The both the puzzle and the necklace glows, they both shoot a energy beam at the fog.

Yami Yugi: I think it's working.

The beam seems to cut it like a torch on a metal wall.

Yami Yugi: it might take a few minutes, but I should be able to make a doorway. I just hope there alright.

Kim: me too Yugi.

Meanwhile at the team duel...

Luster Dragon breaths fire, destroying Dark Necrofear.

Yami Bakura: 3800

Yami Bakura: you've activated my monster's card effect, by destroying it; I can now activate Dark Sanctuary.

The magic card is shown on the field, the field changes, it now has floating eyes, and mouths.

Numbuh 1: I'm not scared of your card. Blue Eyes; attack Bakura, WHITE LIGHTING!

The dragon opens its mouth as it breathed electricity, but then a ghost came out of the dragon, and hits Numbuh 1.

Numbuh 1: 1700

Numbuh 1: uh! What happen?

Yami Bakura: that's the power of my Dark Sanctuary; I choose one monster for the ghost to posses without you knowing, and if you attack with the possessed monster, half of that monster's ATK points are deducted from your life points, and they are added to mine. But since it's a team duel, I'll send the life points to another teammate, my mind slave Ron.

Ron: 4200

Yami Bakura: I activate my Destiny Board trap card.

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up, an Ouija board appears, and a "F' appears on it.

Yami Bakura: every passing turn, I'll get another letter, when all five letters appear, I win instantly. But since it's a team duel, every passing turn it's complete, one will be out of the duel.

Back to the story, score so far:

Numbuh 1: 1700

Numbuh 2: 4000

Numbuh 3: 4000

Yami Numbuh 4: 3200

Numbuh 5: 3000

Arkana: 2250

Panik: XXXX

Yami Bakura: 3800

Bonz: XXXX

Ron: 4200

Numbuh 5: (thinking) let's see, Bakura has Destiny Board on the field, and he said that he put some of the other letters of that card in his teammates decks. So that means that when its Ron's turn again, the message will be complete, we've got to stop him before that. (Aloud) Numbuh 5 draws now (draws card).

Arkana: A-HA! Now I activate this: Shadow Balance!

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up, a monster scale thing appears.

Numbuh 5: what is that?

Arkana: this trap card can destroy monsters so that we all have same number of monsters on each side. But since we don't have any monsters on the field all together, all of your monsters are destroyed.

The Shadow Balance starts to suck all the monsters.

Numbuh 3: what about Numbuh 1's monster, Lord of Dragons? He protects dragons from being destroyed.

Numbuh 1: it won't work if He's destroyed too, only if Lord of Dragons was a dragon too.

Numbuh 2: then let's make them all dragons; I activate my facedown card, DNA surgery!

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up.

Numbuh 2: this continuous trap card can turn all monsters into one specific type, and I choose Dragon.

Arkana: nice try, but I can stop it with this: Remove Trap!

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up.

Arkana: this magic card destroys one trap on the field, so your DNA surgery is done for.

DNA surgery is Destroyed, the Shadow Balance sucks the Monsters up, then they are at one part of it, there part goes down, and they are all destroyed.

Numbuh 5: you should have waited until Numbuh 5 summoned a monster, you wasted your trap. Numbuh 5 summons the Unfriendly Amazon, in attack mode.

She places the cards on the duel disk, and a normal version of the monster appeared in front of her.

ATK: 2000
DEF: 1000

Numbuh 5: Unfriendly Amazon, attack Arkana's life points directly!

Unfriendly Amazon rushes to Arkana, but then a ghost came out of her, and hits Numbuh 5.

Numbuh 5: 2000

Numbuh 5: uh! Oh man! I forgot.

Yami Bakura: my ghost strikes again, leaving you 1000 life points short and me 1000 life points more.

Yami Bakura: 4800

Numbuh 5: I end my turn.

Yami Bakura: mind slave, your up, but first another letter for my Destiny Board.

The Destiny board receives an "I."

Ron: (Draws card, distorted) I set two cards facedown, and end my turn by setting a monster facedown in defense mode.

He puts the cards on the duel disk, and a large version of the facedown cards and a version of the facedown monster appears in front of him.

Numbuh 3: I go now. (Draws card, looks at both, then sighs) oh, I pass, you go Numbuh 4.

Numbuh 4: (in Yami Numbuh 4's thoughts) oh boy. With no cards in my hand, this draw could make or break the duel in our favor. Come on heart of the cards, guide me.

Yami Numbuh 4 draws his card, but then something weird happened. The card he drew started to glow, but so did one in Numbuh 1's hand, and the same thing was happening with Numbuh 2, 3, and 5. Yami Numbuh 4 sees this, and looks at the card he drew, he then smiles.

Yami Numbuh 4: Grave Robber, your Destiny Board may make you win automatically, but we've got something that can do that too, and I've just drawn the final piece.

Yami Bakura: Final Piece? What are you talking about?







They put the cards on their duel disk, and an image of a green star appears. The five cards are shown coming together. First, a right arm is pushed out, then the left, then the head, until finally; the whole monster comes out.

ATK: Infinity
DEF: Infinity

Yami Bakura: OH NO! NOT EXODIA!

Yami Numbuh 4: usually we would win now, but because it's a team duel, we have to obliterate you guys one by one. So…Exodia, take Arkana out of the duel, OBLITERATE!

The monster forms a fireball in its hand, and throws it at Arkana.


Arkana: 0

Arkana gets launched in the darkness, and disappears.

Yami Numbuh 4: (to Yami Bakura) once you end your turn, Exodia will take you out, and then we'll save Ron. I now end my-

Yami Bakura: (interrupting) not so fast, (to Ron) Mind slave, activate your facedown cards.

Ron: (distorted) my first facedown card will be the Self-Destruct Button Trap card.

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up, a button with a Skull and Crossbow on it appears.

Ron: (distorted) with a push of this button, this card will brings all our life points down to Zero. But I will be safe thanks to this magic card…

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up, a giant ring thing appears in front of him.

Ron: (distorted) … Ring of Defense. It will protect my life points from any and all damage.

Ron then pushed the button, the Ring of Defense starts twirling.

Numbuh 3: not so fast I activate my facedown card.

She pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up, a giant ring thing appears in front of her.

Yami Bakura: what the…?

Numbuh 3: that's right; I also have a Ring of Defense.

Yami Numbuh 4: Kuki, you can fight against Ron, you're not experienced enough, and he might be out of your league.

Numbuh 3: I know. That's why I'm giving it to you.

Yami Numbuh 4: what?

Numbuh 3: I transfer the power of the Ring of Defense to Numbuh 4.

The ring moves to in font Yami Numbuh 4.

Yami Numbuh 4: but-

Numbuh 3: don't worry, I know you can win, and get us out.

Numbuh 5: AAAHHHH!

Numbuh 5: 0

Numbuh 5 gets launched in the darkness, but she hits a wall of some kind, and her arms get bolted up to it, same thing with the others

Numbuh 2: WAAHHH!

Numbuh 2: 0

Numbuh 1: YYAAAAHHH!

Numbuh 1: 0

Yami Bakura: UUHHH!

Yami Bakura: 0

Numbuh 3: good luck.

Before she goes with the others, she grabs Yami Numbuh 4's face and gives him a quick kiss on the lips.

Numbuh 3: 0

She let go with a "Whoa" and ends up with the others, then the Exodia breaks up, leaving only his head and torso. (A/N: the other pieces were the operatives) and the Destiny Board and Dark Sanctuary was also destroyed.

Numbuh 4: (in Yami Numbuh 4's thoughts) don't worry Kuki, I will save you. You and the others.

Yami Bakura: I may be out of the game, but I can still control Ron, and since you are finished…?

Yami Numbuh 4: I am.

Yami Bakura: good. Now I think Ron will take his turn.

Ron: (draws card, distorted) I reveal my facedown monster.

He takes the card on the duel disk and flips it face up in attack mode, it was a Cyber Jar. The hologram dose the same thing.

ATK: 900
DEF: 900

Ron: (distorted) Cyber Jar. When this monster is flipped up, it destroys all monsters on the field.

Cyber Jar Explodes, destroying the Head and Torso of Exodia along with it.

Yami Numbuh 4: I know, now we draw five cards and special summon any low level monster we draw.

Ron: (distorted) correct.

They both draw 5 cards.

Ron: (distorted) I've drawn two, but I think I'll have them in Defense mode, Sangan and Flame Dancer.

He puts the cards on the duel disk, and large versions of the monsters appear in front of him.

Flame Dancer:
ATK: 550
DEF: 450

ATK: 1000
DEF: 600

Yami Numbuh 4: I've drawn three which I'll have in attack mode, Beta and Gamma the Magnet Warrior, as well as my Battle Ox.

He puts the cards on the duel disk, and large versions of the monsters appear in front of him.

Beta the Magnet Warrior:
ATK: 1700
DEF: 1600

Gamma the Magnet Warrior:
ATK: 1500
DEF: 1800

Battle Ox:
ATK: 1700
DEF: 1100

Ron: (distorted) very impressive, but not as good as my next move. By removing my earth monster, Hayabusa Knight, from play, I'm able to special summon this: The Rock Spirit.

He puts the card on the duel disk, and a normal version of the monster appeared in front of him.

ATK: 1700
DEF: 1000

Ron: (distorted) and since that was a special summon, I can do an extra normal summon. So, I sacrifice both Sangan and Flame Dancer in order to summon Black Tyranno, in attack mode.

He puts the card on the duel disk, and the two monsters disintegrate, and a normal version of the monster appeared in front of him.

ATK: 2600
DEF: 1800

Ron: (distorted) Sangan's destruction allows me to take a monster with 1500 ATK point or less from my deck to my hand. (He takes his deck, searches through it, and takes one, and shows it to him) so I choose this, my Fiber Jar. (He re-shuffles his deck, and places it back in the duel disk) now my Rock Spirit will attack your Gamma the Magnet Warrior.

The Rock Spirit rushes to Gamma.

Yami Numbuh 4: activate trap, Dark renewal!

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up. A coffin appears, it opens, and a light grabs Rock Spirit, and Gamma the Magnet Warrior and they enter the coffin.

Yami Numbuh 4: I won't bother explaining it since you've already seen Arkana use it.

The coffin re-opens revealing his Dark Magician.

ATK: 2500
DEF: 2100

Ron: (distorted) so what if you have your Dark Magician back, my Black Tyranno is still stronger.

Yami Numbuh 4: then make your move.

Yami Bakura: (talking to Ron in thoughts) don't attack him you fool, his facedown card might deflect it or something.

Ron: (distorted) no, I rather not. I end my turn by setting this facedown.

He puts the card on the duel disk, and a large version of the facedown card appears in front of him.

Yami Numbuh 4: fine, my move then. (Draws card) you know it's too bad, you've really should of attacked me.

Ron: (distorted) well that's your option.

Yami Numbuh 4: no, it's fact. If you have declared an attack, you might have had an early lead.

Yami Bakura: don't play dumb, you would have used your trap card.

Yami Numbuh 4: It's not a trap card…

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up.

Yami Numbuh 4: … It's a Dark Magic Ritual magic card.

Yami Bakura gasps at this.

Yami Numbuh 4: HA! You fell for my bluff. Now, by offering Beta the Magnet warrior, and my Battle Ox, I shall now summon The Magician of Black Chaos.

The card then takes Battle Ox and Beta the Magnet warrior, and destroys them, and the Ritual Monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 2800
DEF: 2600

Yami Numbuh 4: that's not all; next I play Monster Reborn to bring back Numbuh 3's Dark Magician Girl.

The magic card is shown on the field; Dark Magician Girl comes back in attack mode.

ATK: 2000
DEF: 1700

Yami Numbuh 4: you're looking at three of the most powerful magician in all of Duel Monsters, and they have the strength to take you out. Magician of Black Chaos; destroys the Black Tyranno, CHAOS SCEPTER BLAST!

Ron: (distorted) nice try, by you forgot my facedown card, Zero Gravity.

He pushes a button, and the facedown card flips up.

Ron: (distorted) this trap card changes all monsters from whatever mode they're in from the opposite. So, all monsters in attack mode will go to Defense mode.

All of the monsters kneel down.

Yami Numbuh 4: I set one card facedown, and end my turn.

He puts the card on the duel disk, and a large version of the facedown card appears in front of him.

Yami Bakura: alright mind slave, finish him.

Ron: (draws card, distorted) I play this: Mystical Space Typhoon!

The magic card is shown on the field, and wind comes out of it.

Yami Numbuh 4: oh-no! Now I facedown card is gone.

The card blows the other card away, it was Negate Attack.

Ron: (distorted) next I switch my Black Tyranno to attack mode, and thanks to its card effect, since all you have a defensive monsters, I can bi-pass them, and go for your life points directly.

The Dinosaur runs pass the magicians, and it bites Yami Numbuh 4 on his right arm.

Yami Numbuh 4: OW!

It let's go, and goes back to Ron.

Yami Numbuh 4: 600

Numbuh 3: Numbuh 4! Are you okay!

Yami Numbuh 4: (rubbing his arm in pain) yes. But one more attack like that… and it's over.

Ron: (distorted) I set this facedown, ending my turn, you can use the rest.

He puts the card on the duel disk, and a large version of the facedown card appears in front of him.

Yami Numbuh 4: alright, no more mister nice guy. (Draws card) I play Card of Sanctity; it allows us to draw until we each have six cards.

The magic card is shown, both Ron and Yami Numbuh 4 draw, they each now have six.

Meanwhile outside of the fog, Yami Yugi manages to cut through.

Yami Yugi: yes! We're through!

Joey: alright Yuge! Ya did it!

Yami Yugi: thanks Joey. (To Kim) alright Kim, enter and find them, we'll cover you.

Kim: thanks.

She now runs through the hole Yami Yugi made, and she sees them in the duel.

Kim: GUYS!

Yami Numbuh 4: Kim?

Yami Bakura: well, well. You're just in time to see the final play.

Kim: there won't be a final play because I'm going to free Ron from your rod's brain washing.

Yami Bakura: oh? I'd like to see you try.

Kim: I will. (To Ron) Ron! Snap out of it! You can't go through with this!

Ron: (less distorted) Kim?

Kim: yes. It's me. Come on Ron, you've got to fight it, you've been in some tough spots before, you can do it again. I know you can.

Ron just stared at her, and then he started to grab his head, like he was in pain.


Yami Bakura: (thinking) no! I'm losing control of him! That's it, time to go full mind control on his ass!

The millennium rod glows, and it was intensifying, Ron was still screaming, then stopped.

Yami Bakura: I will not lose this duel…

Ron: (distorted) … so now I activate this trap card, End turn! (A/N: I made that one up)

The facedown card flips up. (The image is man in a turban, stopping another man from drawing a card)

Yami Numbuh 4: what is that?

Yami Bakura: at a cost of 2000 life points…

Ron: (distorted) …your turn comes to an end before you even start; now I go. (Draws card)

Ron: 2200

Numbuh 2: no! His monsters aren't in attack mode, he'll bi-pass them again!

Yami Bakura: right you are Numbuh 2. Now…

Ron: (distorted) … Black Tyranno, attack Numbuh 4's life point's-

Kim: (interrupting) NO! RON DON'T!

Yami Bakura: (rod glows) STAY OUT OF THIS!

He shoots a beam of energy from the rod at her

Yami Numbuh 4: I don't think so.

His scales glow, and Kim is protected from the beam by a clear shield.

Yami Numbuh 4: Kim, it's too dangerous. I don't think you'll be able to break Ron free.

Kim: I know I can free him. Joey managed to break free when he was under the control.

Yami Numbuh 4: Joey? That blonde kid who's with the pharaoh? He was under it and broke it?

Kim: yeah. Now it's immune to him.

Yami Numbuh 4: (thinking) hmm…interesting.

Kim: come on Ron, snap out of it.

She walks closer to Ron.

Ron: (less distorted) Kim?

Kim: that right. Please Ron, you've got to break free.

Yami Bakura: HA! You're wasting. He's under my full control. Nothing you say or do will break it.

Kim: yeah? Well see what you make of this.

Kim then grabs Ron and gives him a kiss on the lips; she stays that way for about a minute. Then she stops, but slowly.

Kim: I… I love you Ron.

Ron just stared at her, trying to comprehend what Kim did. Then he started to grab his head again.


The Anubis eye symbol on his fore head disintegrates.

Yami Bakura: NO! I've lost control; it's not working on him any more!

Ron: AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (He let goes of his head) Kim!

Yami Numbuh 4: (in shock) she did it. She broke the spell.

Kim: Ron! Is that you?

Ron: the one and only. (Looks around) hey! Where are we?

Ron: Ron? You don't remember?

Ron: all I remember is defending you from that Bakura kid, and now I'm at this dark place. (Realizes) And did you just say you loved me?

Kim: (blushes) um…yeah Ron, I did say that.

Yami Numbuh 4: Ron! The sprit was controlling you to duel with him in a team duel, and now it's just you and I left. If one of us loses, the losing team goes to the shadow realm.

Ron: I can't let that happen to you, you guys need to win to get the God cards back. (Raises hand)

Kim: Ron, what are you doing?

Ron: saving them the only way I can. (Places hand over the duel disk) I surrender!

The duel disk glows.

Yami Numbuh 4: NO!

Numbuh 3: what did he just do?

Numbuh 2: when a duelist places their hand over the deck, they forfeit the duel.

Yami Bakura: well, as the victor, you clam your prize, my items and the cards.

He throws the items at Yami Numbuh 4 and he catches them. Yami Bakura starts to fade, so does Ron.

Yami Bakura: (evil smile) and my team is banished to the shadow realm.

They are about to be sucked into the darkness.

Ron: Get out of here K.P.!

Kim: No! I won't lose you! (Grabs Ron's hand)

Numbuh 4: (in Yami Numbuh 4's thought) we've got to do something to save him.

Yami Numbuh 4: (through thoughts) wait! I've got it. (Aloud) I now perform the "Wager Exchange"

His scales glow, so does Ron, and also the millennium rod, ring and eye.

Yami Bakura: what?

Yami Numbuh 4: in order to keep Ron; you can keep your items and your soul free from the shadow realm. But we still get the God cards.

He throws the millennium items back at him, and Yami Bakura catches it. The entire fog disappears, leaving Yami Bakura, Kim, Ron, and Numbuhs 1, 2, 3, 5 and Yami Numbuh 4.

Will: Kim, Ron. Are you alright?

Kim: never better.

Yami Numbuh 4: well Tomb Robber, I've manage to spare you. But next time we meet, you won't be so lucky.

Yami Bakura: the next time we meet, you won't be so lucky, this isn't over. Soon, the God cards and all the millennium items will be in my hands!

He runs off into the shadows.

Joey: Hey! He's getting away.

Numbuh 86: get him!

They follow him, only to end up in front of a wall.

Yami Numbuh 4: we'll see him again, I'm sure of it. (He changes back to Numbuh 4)

Numbuh 2: man, we almost lost. I don't think I'll be playing duel monsters for a while.

Numbuh 1: If we do run into him again, I think we should better our game.

Numbuh 3: you said it.

Yami Yugi: what about the God cards?

Numbuh 4: (takes them out) I think it's best if we split them up. That way, they won't be all stolen again.

He walks over to Yami Yugi and Kaiba

Numbuh 4: Yugi, I think you should hold on to Slifer (gives card to Yami Yugi), while Kaiba holds on to Obelisk. (Gives card to Kaiba)

Yami Yugi: what about Ra?

Numbuh 4: since Ra is the strongest of the God cards, he'll stay at Kids Next Door moon base under security. That is until we find someone worthy of it.

Joey: moon base? You guys have a headquarters on the moon?

Numbuh 1: um…yeah.

Kaiba: (Pause) and I thought Dartz's organization was crazy.

Our story continues at Kaiba corp. as everyone there was about ready to go home. Kim, Ron and Will were heading home by helicopter, while the KND were charging up their transports. We now focus on Kaiba talking to Wade.

Kaiba: well Wade, it was… well…interesting working with you.

Wade: same here. Hey, maybe we can stay connected. Are you a member of the young Geniuses association?

Kaiba: yeah, I'm a member, what's your I.D. number?

Wade: 3370318.

Kaiba: (surprised) No way! Mine's 2716057.

They both laughed for a few seconds, Joey joined them in a weak laugh.

Joey: (laughs, then) I don't get it.

Kaiba: we're both expressible as the sum of two cubes.

Joey: okaaaaaay.

Kaiba: uh. Whatever.

Numbuh 1 was shaking hands with Yugi.

Numbuh 1: well Yugi, it was a real adventure.

Yugi: thanks for the help. I hope this experience has changed your perspective about teenagers.

Numbuh 1: Yugi, you've shown us that not all teenagers are bad, I look forward to working with you again.

Yugi: same here.

Kim: well, we better get going.

Joey: yeah us to.

Mai: yeah, I better head home.

At the other side of the room, Numbuh 3 started to hug Numbuh 4 from behind.

Numbuh 3: (giggles) did I thank you for saving us Numbuh 4?

Numbuh 4: (smiles) um…I don't think so, maybe.

Numbuh 3 giggles again. Then she grabs him, and kisses him on the lips. When she stops, Numbuh 4 smiles and sighs a bit.

Numbuh 4: (thinking) yes!

Numbuh 5: come on love birds, let's head home.

Numbuh 2: I'm down with that.

The KND, Kim and the others head to the roof. As yugi and the others make their leave, Joey turns to Ron.

Joey: Oh, Ron?

Ron: Joey?

Joey: (winks) stay out of trouble.

Ron: (looks at Kim with half closed eyes) you know I will.

Kim giggles at his suave-like tone in his, then Ron goes "come here." grabbing her and then he kisses her on the lips. When he stopped, Kim lets out a "tiger growl/purr" thing.

Ron: (suave-like tone) Boo-Yah!

The scene cuts to the KND of sector "V" in there school bus ship; Numbuh 4 realized that his Yami was thinking deeply.

Numbuh 4: (through thought) what's up Yami me?

Yami Numbuh 4: oh nothing, it just, I'm thinking about what Kim said earlier.


Yami Numbuh 4: Kim, it's too dangerous, I don't think you'll be able to break Ron free.

Kim: I know I can free him. Joey managed to break free when he was under the control.

Yami Numbuh 4: Joey? That blonde kid who's with the pharaoh? He was under it and broke it?

Kim: yeah. Now it's immune to him.

Flashback ends

Yami Numbuh 4: both Ron and Joey are now immune to the rod. In Egypt, there was only one person who was immune to the millennium rod, and that was the pharaoh's most loyal servant.

Numbuh 4: wasn't that you?

Yami Numbuh 4: no, I was oneofhis loyal high priest. His most loyal servant was another, and he was quite the resemblance to Joey.

Numbuh 4: so your saying that Joey is the descendent to the loyal servant.

Yami Numbuh 4: yes.

Numbuh 4: wow, and he doesn't even know that.

Yami Numbuh 4: oh I have a feeling he'll find out someday.

There, finished. Now I want you to know that at some points I'll make up a few cards, and I'll let you know which one is. Until then, read and review please.
