Here's the next chapter. And for those who were wondering why I gave Danny Jaden Yuki's Duel Catchphrase, I figured that the quote had to originate from something and Jaden liked it. Probably Jaden made it up, I'm not sure, but in my Fic, I'll have it originate from Danny. One last thing: Some of the cards Danny might use are the same Noah Kaiba used when he dueled Yugi. Thanks to Cyber Commander who gave me the list of the cards, now on with the story, already


Previously on Yu-Gi-Oh:

The scene changed to Bakura talking to his new assistant.

Yami Bakura: alright, my apprentice, here is your next mission: I will walk the streets of Team World, challenging some poor, unsuspecting team into a Shadow Game. Once I begin, that will be your signal to roam the streets, challenging team and causing dueling chaos, crush any duelist standing in your way.

Woman: understood, master.

Yami Bakura: but the question is who? Perhaps my millennium rod will solve that.

Taking the millennium rod, he uses it to manipulate some of the Ref-bots and security cameras to view who would be his next victims. He then sees a group of three duelist, two boys and a girl. The group is called Team Phantom:

Yami Bakura: looks like we have a winner. (Laughs maniacally)


The scene cuts to Team Phantom walking and talking to each other.

Voice: Pardon me, Team Phantom is it?

The group of three turns around and they are greeted by a boy wearing a brown trench coat and an eye-patch over his left eye. It was Yami Bakura who changed into Bakura.

Danny: yeah. Who are you?

Bakura: My name's Bakura, leader of Team Bakura, and I was wondering if I could have a duel with you three. I saw your last duel and I wanted to test your skills for myself.

Sam: So… where's your team? You said you wanted to duel us, right?

Bakura: Oh yes, they'll be here soon. But first, I want to show you something. They're sort of good luck charms of mine. They are very old artifacts my father obtained, he's an archeologist.

He opens the trench coat revealing the Duel Vest Mach II. He then pushes a button on the side and it opens up, revealing odd-shaped holes and two golden items, his millennium rod and ring.

Sam: What are they?

Bakura: They are called "Millennium Items." My father says that they are supposed to have different magical powers. These are only two of the three I have.

Sam: "Three"? Then where's the third?

Bakura: It's right… (Reaches eye-patch) here!

He lifts it up, revealing his millennium eye. Team Phantom gasp at what they see.

Bakura: Now I want to show you something that you may not have ever seen before.

He then takes the millennium rod and raises it in the air. As it glows, a blue-purplish fog appears out of nowhere.

Sam: What's going on?

Bakura: I'll tell you what's going on…

Just then, the millennium ring starts to glow and the light consumes him, the light then fades, revealing Yami Bakura.

Yami Bakura: … A shadow game is what's going on!

Soon the fog completely covered all of the area of Yami Bakura and Team Phantom.

Danny: What did you do, Bakura?

Yami Bakura: "Bakura"? Bakura is no longer here. I've been taking his body over for some time now. As for who I am, let's say I'm sort of a collector. I've done great and terrible things to obtain the seven millennium items. You can still call me Bakura, because I've lived in his body for so long, I'm use to it.

Tucker: "Seven millennium items"? You mean there are more of those things you got?

Danny: My parents did research on the shadow games and the millennium items. The legend says that-

Yami Bakura: (finishes) "Who so ever welds all seven millennium items will obtain power unimaginable."

Danny: Exactly. But your plan will never work. You're not the only one with powers. (Raises arms) I'M GOING GHOST!

Suddenly, a white ring of light appear on Danny's waist and it separates into two, one going up and one going down. The ring going down started to change his red sneakers into silver-white boots. The ring going up creates silver-white gloves that were on his hands and his shirt becomes black and has an emblem of a white "D" that cradled a solid black "P." The rings pass his shirt and pants, transforming them into a black and silver-white jumpsuit. And finally the rising ring went to his face, turning his skin pale, his raven-black hair snow-white, and his blue eyes became glowing neon green. Yami Bakura looked at this new Danny is shock.

Danny: Allow me to re-introduce myself. The name's Phantom, Danny Phantom.

At that moment, in Danny's right hand, a green energy orb was forming. He then trusted his arm towards Yami Bakura and a green energy beam launched from his hand and towards Yami Bakura. Yami Bakura snapped out of his shock and saw the beam coming towards him; he uses the millennium Ron and deflects the beam before it struck him.

Danny: Let us out of here or the next ectoplasmic blast won't miss.

Yami Bakura: (chuckles evilly) It's not that easy, Danny Phantom is it now? Well, if you want out of the shadow realm, you and your friends will have to be me and my team in a shadow game.

Danny: A team duel, huh? Well, if you're too much of a coward to let your cards fight instead, then I'll accept.

Yami Bakura: The lost soul of my team shall be none other then the tag-team Rare Hunters known as Lumis and Umbra.

The two figures started to take shape, both were wearing purple robes, but one was shorter then the other. The short one, Lumis, was wearing a white and red smile mask that covered only his right side. And the tall one, Umbra, was wearing a black and red frown mask that covered only his left side. Both were also wearing Duel Vest just like Bakura.

Lumis: This should be a good match.

Umbra: Yes, we'll take these three out and send them to eternal darkness in the shadow realm.

Sam: (nonchalant) Fat chance.

Tucker: Yeah, we can take you bozos down.

Yami Bakura: Then let us begin.

The Duel Vest closes back. Yami Bakura pushes a button on the arm band and it pushes out one monster/magic/trap zone, which then folds out into five; two going one way and two going the other. He then held out his left hand and took five cards that were pushed out. Lumis and Umbra repeated the move and drew their staring hand.

Yami Bakura: 8000

Lumis: 8000

Umbra: 8000

Yami Bakura: It's time to duel.

Danny's Duel Disk starts to spark and white rings appear on it like on Danny. The rings split and transformed the Duel Disk, it is now silver and black, and the green "F" was replaced by the emblem that is the same on Danny's chest. It then begins to fold/slides into activation and glows brighter. Sam and Tucker's Duel Disk spark and transform as well, they became the same as Danny's as they fold/side into activation. They then draw five cards from their decks.

Danny: 8000

Sam: 8000

Tucker: 8000

Danny: Okay, Bakura. Get your game on!


The scene cuts to near the end of Danny's second turn.

Danny: Great Long Nose, attack Earl of Demise with Long Nose Sword.

Great Long Nose's Nose extends a few feet and he strikes Earl of Demise with it.

Yami Bakura: 6600

Danny: Ha! My Great Long Nose dealt damage to your Life Points. Thanks to his card effect, you can't do your Battle Phase this turn.

Yami Bakura: WHAT?

Danny: That's right, now I'll throw down two facedowns.

He puts the card in his Duel Disk and the two cards appear facedown in front of him.

Danny: I end my turn, which causes my spirit monster to come back to my hand.

Great Long Nose starts to glow and then disappears. The card then pops up and Danny catches it.

Danny: And since my Black Pendent is destroyed, you lose 500 Life Points.

Yami Bakura: 6100

Yami Bakura: Alright, it's my turn!

He moves his hand over the deck and a card gets pushed out. He takes the card and looks at it.

Yami Bakura: (Laughs maniacally) Oh, this is perfect.

Danny: (Nervous) what is?

Yami Bakura: I've just drawn the card that will be your demise!

He continues to laugh as Team Phantom look on in fear at what he plans to do.

Back to story, score so far:

Yami Bakura: 6100

Lumis: 8000

Umbra: 8000

Danny: 8500

Sam: 8000

Tucker: 8250

Our story continues in the duel, Yami Bakura has just drawn his card and is smiling at it.

Yami Bakura: This is going to be very interesting mach.

Danny: Is that so?

Yami Bakura: Yes. I first start off by playing a Ritual magic card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the magic card is shown on the field.

Yami Bakura: Contract with the Dark Master. All I have to do is sacrifice eight starts worth of monsters and I'll summon one of my most powerful of monsters. So I sacrifice Umbra's Shining Abyss, along with the Makyura the Destructor in my hand.

Makyura the Destructor is shown on the field. Both that and Shining Abyss slow, disintegrate, and enter the magic card.

Yami Bakura: Now, foolish mortals, prepare yourselves, for my Dark Master-Zorc.

He puts the Ritual monster on the arm part of his Duel Vest and the newly summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 2700
DEF: 1500

Tucker: Whoa! That is one creepy dude.

Yami Bakura: Well, now you're going to see him in action.

Danny: I don't think so! Remember my Great Long Nose Monster? Since he dealt damage to you, you can't perform your Battle Phase this turn.

Yami Bakura: Well, I'm not Worried, because my Dark Master has a unique card effect. Dark Master-Zorc, reveal to my opponent your Dark Master Die.

Dark Master-Zorc holds up it right hand. A giant, pitch black, six-sided die with purple dots appears in the monster's hand.

Yami Bakura: Once per turn, my Dark Master-Zorc has the ability to roll the Dark Master Die. If the result is a one or two, all the monsters on my opponents' side of the field will be destroyed. If the result is a three, four or five, then only one of my opponents' monsters will be destroyed. But if the result is a six, then all of our monsters get destroyed. But since the last one is a one-in-six chance of actually happening, I'm not too worried. Now go, Dark Master-Zorc, roll the Dark Master Die!

Dark Master-Zorc throws the die in the air and it comes down Phantom look on in worry as it continues to spin on its side until it starts to slow down. It then finally stops, landing on a… 3

Yami Bakura: Oh, how nice. Zorc, destroy young Samantha's Emissary of the Afterlife with your Dark Lighting!

Dark Master-Zorc raises his hand and produces a "Black-light" lighting bolt, which strikes Emissary of the Afterlife, destroying it.

Sam: (Smiles) Thank you, Captain Evil.

Yami Bakura: Why are you thanking me?

Sam: Because-

Danny: (interrupts, Looks at her) "Captain Evil"? And you say my lines suck.

Sam: (eyes narrow) Shut it! (To Yami Bakura) Because since you sent Emissary of the Afterlife to the graveyard, we're all allowed to take one level-three or lower normal monster from our decks to our hands as long as we show them to each other.

Holo-cards appear in front of all the duelists, they each touch one holo-card. A lone card pops out of each ones' deck and they take it.

Sam: I choose my level-three Saggi the Dark Clown.

Lumis: I choose my level-three Giant Solder of Stone.

Tucker: I choose my level-three Roboyarou.

Umbra: I choose my level-one Charcoal Inpachi.

Danny: I choose my level-two Mystical Shine Ball.

Yami Bakura: And I choose my level-two Souls of the Forgotten. It's still my turn, so I now play a trap card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the trap card is shown on the field.

Tucker: Wait! You can't play a trap like that! It's against the rules.

Yami Bakura: Insolent fool, I sent my Makyura the Destructor to the graveyard when I summoned Zorc. Its effect allows me to play a trap card like a magic card in the turn it's sent to the graveyard. And the trap I played is known as Magic Thorn.

Sam: Oh, great, now every time a card is discarded from our hand, we lose 500 Life Points for each one.

Yami Bakura: That's right. Now I'll set one card facedown.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the card appears facedown in front of him.

Yami Bakura: It's your move.

Sam: (Draws card and looks at it. Thinking) Hmm, not bad, but I don't know if I should play it. With that Zorc card Bakura has, he could destroy it with ease. Unless… (Aloud) I'll set one card facedown.

She puts the card in her Duel Disk and the facedown card appears in front of her.

Sam: Then I'll set a monster facedown in defense mode.

She puts the card in her Duel Disk and the monster card appears facedown in front of her.

Sam: I end my turn.

Yami Bakura: (thinking) Hmm, I wonder what she is planning. Perhaps my millennium eye can solve that.

The millennium eye flickers as he focuses on Sam. Through the eye, he could see what the cards she set on the field. The facedown monster is the Ancient Lamp, and her facedown card is the trap, Michizure.

Yami Bakura: (thinking) Ah, I see your little plan, Samantha. You'll wait until my monster activates his card effect and destroys your monster. Then you'll spring your Michizure trap card, its effect allows you to destroy one monster when one of yours is destroyed. Well, I'm all prepared for it, or should I say Lumis is prepared.

Lumis: My draw, now. (Takes Pushed card) First I'll summon my Grand Tiki Elder to the Field.

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest and the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 1500
DEF: 800

Yami Bakura: Dark Master-Zorc, control shift to Lumis and follow his orders.

Dark Master-Zorc moves towards Lumis's side of the field.

Lumis: Thank you, master.

Yami Bakura: (Speaking to him through thought) Have Zorc attack Samantha's facedown monster instead of using his card effect. That way, when the time is right, I'll be prepared to counter her strategy.

Lumis: (through thought) you got it, master. (Aloud) Dark Master-Zorc, attack that facedown monster with your Dark lightning!

Dark Master-Zorc raises his hand and produces a "Black-light" lighting bolt. The bolt of lightning reaches to Sam's facedown monster.

Yami Bakura: (Thinking) let's see if that puts a damper in her plan.

The millennium eye flickers as he focuses on Sam.

Sam: (thinking) He's attacking instead of using Zorc's effect. (Smiles) Big mistake!

Yami Bakura: (Thinking) What?

Yami Bakura looked on in fear as the attack revealed the facedown monster to be Ancient Lamp.

ATK: 900
DEF: 1400

Sam: Gotcha!

The lightning hits the lamp, but it ricochets and hits Grand Tiki Elder, destroying it.

Lumis: 6800

Lumis: What just happened?

Sam: That would be the cause of my Ancient Lamp. When it's attacked in facedown defense mode, it can reflect the attack to another monster on my opponents' side of the field. I was actually expecting you to use Zorc's card effect. You want to use it now?

Yami Bakura: (Speaking to Lumis through thought) If we do, then Zorc will be destroyed no matter what. End your turn.

Lumis: (through thought) yes, master.

Lumis puts two cards in the arm part of his Duel Vest and they appear facedown in front of him

Lumis: I end my turn by setting two facedown cards.

Tucker: Alright, here I go. (Draws card) I first set two cards facedown.

He puts the cards in his Duel Disk and they both appear facedown in front of him.

Tucker: Then I'll summon my X-Head Cannon to the field in attack mode.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 1800
DEF: 1500

Yami Bakura: In attack mode? (Smiles) And here, I was under the impression that you were intelligent.

Tucker: I still am. In case you didn't notice, I set a facedown card last turn, and now I'll play it.

He pushes a button on his Duel Disk and the facedown card he set last turn flips up.

Tucker: Limiter Removal. This Quick-play magic card doubles my machine-type monsters' ATK points. So now my Cannon has more then enough fire power to take your Dark Master-Zorc out.

The magic card glows, as does X-Head Cannon.

X-Head Cannon:
ATK: 3600
DEF: 1500

Yami Bakura: (Shock) oh-no!

Tucker: X-Head Cannon, attack!

X-Head Cannon shoots lasers from its cannons, which are making their way towards Dark Master-Zorc.

Lumis: Hold on, fools. I activate my trap.

He pushes a button on the arm part of his Duel Vest and one of his facedown cards flip up.

Lumis: My Waboku reduces the attack to 0, protecting Dark Master-Zorc.

Three women in light blue robes appear in front of Dark Master-Zorc, blocking and neutralizing the on-coming attack.

Tucker: Fine, my turn is done. And since that's the case, my Limiter Removal secondary effect takes place: destroying my X-Head Cannon at the turn's end.

X-Head Cannon starts glowing, and then it disintegrates.

Sam: Now that Tucker's monster is destroyed, I can do this:

She pushes a button on her Duel Disk and her facedown card flips up.

Sam: Michizure! Tucker's X-Head Cannon might be going to the graveyard, but he won't go alone. So now, my trap destroys Dark Master-Zorc.

The trap card glows. The ground under Dark Master-Zorc crumbles and a pair of hands grabs Zorc, taking the monster down with it.

Umbra: Well, it's now my turn. (Takes pushed card) and I'll start by playing a Ritual magic card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Disk and the magic card is shown on the field. The card then changes into an altar with three skill flames, one big in the middle and two small ones on each side.

Umbra: My Curse of the Masked Beast let's me Special Summon my Ritual monster when I sacrifice monsters whose star-level are of eight or more. So I sacrifice the Masked Beast Des Guardius in my hand to summon one of our strongest monsters.

Masked Beast Des Guardius is shown on the field before the flames of the altar consumes the monster. Umbra puts the Ritual monster on the arm part of his Duel Vest as the monster is shown, coming from the flames.

Umbra: I would like to introduce, to you three, The Masked Beast!

ATK: 3200
DEF: 1800

Danny: It's got 3200 ATK points.

Tucker: Oh man, that's not good.

Umbra: I'm not done yet. (Puts card in arm part of Duel Vest) Next I play my Monster Reincarnation.

The magic card is shown on the field.

Umbra: I can now discard one card from my hand and I can take a monster card from my graveyard and add it to my hand. I discard my Charcoal Inpachi…

He puts the card in the graveyard. Another card comes out of the graveyard and he takes it.

Umbra: …And I bring back my Masked Beast Des Guardius.

Lumis: Now I'll go ahead and reveal another of my facedown cards.

Yami Bakura: And I will activate mine.

Both pushes a button on the arm part of their Duel Vest and their facedown cards flip up.

Lumis and Yam Bakura: Both of them being Call of the Haunted.

Lumis: I bring back my Grand Tiki Elder.

Yami Bakura: And I bring back Umbra's Shining Abyss.

Both graveyards glow as the two summoned monsters appear in front of them.

Grand Tiki Elder:
ATK: 1500
DEF: 800

Shining Abyss:
ATK: 1600
DEF: 1800

Sam: what are you guys planning?

Umbra: I'll answer that, Samantha. You see, my Des Guardius can only be Special Summoned if one of the monsters I sacrifice to summon it is either a Grand Tiki Elder or a Melchid the Four-Faced Beast. And thanks to my teammates, Grand Tiki Elder is on the field with another monster I can use.

Yami Bakura: We control shift our monsters to Umbra for him to use.

Both monsters move towards Umbra's side of the field.

Umbra: now I'll sacrifice them in order to summon…

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest. The two monsters disintegrate as the newly summoned monster appears in front of him.

Umbra: … MASKED BEAST DES GUARDIUS!

ATK: 3300
DEF: 2500

Tucker: … aw crud.

Umbra: Masked Beast #1, destroy that Lamp the girl has on the field and then Masked Beast Des Guardius will take care of her.

Masked Beast charges at Sam's Ancient Lamp, with its staff ready to strike it.

Danny: Activate Trap!

He pushes a button on his Duel Disk and one of his facedown cards flip up.

Danny: Negate Attack!

Masked Beast attacks and hits an invisible wall, neutralizing the attack.

Danny: You're gonna have to try better then that.

Umbra: Grrr. I end my turn.

Danny: (Draws card) My turn. I'll play Pot of Greed, (Puts card in Duel Disk) drawing two cards from my deck.

The magic card is shown on the field and Danny draws two cards from his deck.

Danny: Now, I'll set a monster facedown in defense mode.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the facedown monster card appears in front of him.

Danny: And that's all for me.

Yami Bakura: Pathetic. (Takes pushed card) my move. I play the magic card, Monster Reborn, (puts card in arm part of Duel Vest) bringing back my Dark Master-Zorc.

The magic card is shown on the field. His graveyard glows and Dark Master-Zorc returns to the field in attack mode.

ATK: 2700
DEF: 1500

Yami Bakura: Now I'll have him activate his card effect and toss the Dark Master Die.

Dark Master-Zorc throws the die in the air and it comes down Phantom look on in worry as it continues to spin on its side until it starts to slow down. It then finally stops, landing on a… 5

Yami Bakura: (Thinking) Hmm… that was too close. (Aloud) Alright, I'll have my Dark Master destroy that Ancient Lamp.

Dark Master-Zorc raises his hand and produces a "Black-light" lighting bolt. The bolt of lightning makes its way towards Ancient Lamp.

Danny: I don't think so!

He pushes a button on his Duel Disk and his facedown card flips up.

Danny: I activate my trap card: Interdimensional Matter Transporter.

A big laser gun appears the laser's blast hits Ancient Lamp and it disappears. The lighting misses the monster and the attack fades away.

Yami Bakura: (Shocked) what happened? Where did that Lamp go?

Danny: My trap card removed it from play. Interdimensional Matter Transporter takes one monster on our side of the field that's targeted by another card and removes it from play, leaving the attack you made useless. And when it Sam's turn, the Lamp will return to the field.

Yami Bakura: (Thinking) Hmm… That's twice that Danny protected that Goth girl, Samantha, and her monsters. I wonder…

Danny: So, What are you gonna do now?

Yami Bakura: nothing. I'll just set a monster facedown in defense mode and let your girlfriend take her turn.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the facedown monster card appears in front of him.

Danny: (Annoyed) She's not my girlfriend!

Sam: (Annoyed) I'm not his girlfriend!

Yami Bakura: (Chuckles) I'm sure.

Sam: Look, can we get back to the duel, it my turn now.

Yami Bakura: Of course.

Sam: Good. (Draws card) It bad enough everyone we know keeps saying it. We don't need to hear it from a freakazoid like you.

Yami Bakura: (Thinking) Is that so…?

Sam: First, my Lamp returns to the field.

The laser gun shoots another laser beam, returning the Ancient Lamp to the field.

Sam: Now then, I'll activate my Ancient Lamps second card effect, allowing me to Special Summon La Jinn the Mystic Genie of the Lamp from my hand.

She puts the card on her Duel Disk and the monster comes out of the Ancient Lamp in attack mode.

ATK: 1800
DEF: 1000

Sam: Now with that Special Summon, I'll perform my Normal Summon, sacrificing my Genie and his Lamp.

She puts a card on her Duel Disk. The two monsters disintegrate and the newly summoned monster appears in front of her.

Sam: Say hello to my Invader of Darkness!

ATK: 2900
DEF: 2500

Sam: Not bad, huh? Well, you're gonna love his card effect. As long as Invader of Darkness is on the field, my opponent isn't allowed to activate any and all Quick-Play magic cards.

Yami Bakura: Well, that's really a moot point. Aside from that ability, your Invader of Darkness only has 2900 ATK points.

Sam: For now. But I have a little card that will change all that. (Puts card in Duel Disk) A card known as Malevolent Nuzzler!

The magic card is shown on the field. It glows, as does Invader of Darkness.

Sam: This Equip magic card increases Invader's ATK by 700, making it ATK points now 3600.

Invader of Darkness:
ATK: 3600
DEF: 2500

Sam: More then enough to destroy any of those Masked Beasts. Now, my Invader of Darkness; attack the Ritual Masked Beast! DARKNESS DISASTER!

Invader of Darkness disappears in shadows. The shadows move towards the Ritual Masked Beast, consuming it in darkness and destroying it. Invader of Darkness returns in front of Sam.

Umbra: 7600

Sam: Well, not much left to do but set a card facedown.

She puts the card in her Duel Disk and the card appears facedown in front of her.

Sam: That ends my turn.

Lumis: (takes pushed card) My move! (To Umbra) Umbra, pass me Des Guardius.

Umbra: Okay then. Masked Beast Des Guardius, control shift to Lumis and follow his orders.

The Masked Beast Des Guardian moves towards Lumis's side of the field.

Lumis: Alright, now, I'll have our Des Guardius attack that Invader of Darkness. Lunging claw-thrust!

Sam: (Surprised) What?

Masked Beast Des Guardius rushes towards Invader of Darkness and prepares to strike it with its claw. But Invader of Darkness counters and attacks Des Guardius square in the chest, destroying Des Guardius.

Umbra: 7300

Sam: What was the point of that? (In a "Duh" tone) My Invader was clearly stronger.

Lumis: (Chuckles evilly) which was why I had Des Guardius attack!

Sam: Huh?

Lumis: See for yourself.

Sam looks towards the field and sees that the three blue masks that were on the Masked Beast Des Guardius were still there, floating in the air.

Sam: Hey, what's the deal with those masks?

Lumis: The deal is that when Des Guardius is destroyed, it allows me to instantly activate a very powerful magic card.

A lone card pops out of his deck and he takes it. The three masks started to spin together in a very high speed. He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest as they combine; becoming one big red mask.

Lumis: A magic card known as the Mask of Remnant!

The mask heads towards Invader of Darkness and goes on its head, covering the head completely. The mask then makes Invader of Darkness move towards Lumis's side of the field.

Lumis: Mask of Remnant is an Equip-magic card that activates when Des Guardius is destroyed. Once then, it instantly equips to the monster that destroyed it. And as long as the mask is equipped to the monster, I keep control of it.

Sam: Oh…Nuts!

Lumis: Now then, it's still my Battle Phase, so Invader of Darkness; attack your former mistress with your Darkness Disaster.

Invader of Darkness disappears in shadows. The shadows move towards Sam as she prepares to take the blow. She guards herself with her Duel Disk as a claw strikes her from the darkness. Invader of Darkness returns in front of Lumis.

Sam: 4400

Lumis: Look like the tables have turned, haven't they?

Sam: Shut up and finish your turn.

Lumis: Well, if you want to lose so badly, I'll set another two cards facedown.

He puts the cards in his arm part of his Duel Vest and the cards appear facedown in front of him.

Tucker: Then it's my go again. (Draws card) I play a continuous magic card.

He puts the card in his Duel Disk and it is shown on the field.

Tucker: Frontline Base. As long as this card is in play, I can Special Summon a level-4 or lower union monster from my hand. So I use its magic and Special Summon my Y-Dragon Head.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 1500
DEF: 1600

Tucker: Now I reveal one of my facedown cards.

He pushes a button on his Duel Disk and one of his facedown cards flip up.

Tucker: My own Call of the Haunted. I bring back my X-Head Cannon.

The trap card glows. His graveyard glows and his X-Head Cannon returns to the field.

ATK: 1800
DEF: 1500

Tucker: Next I use my Normal Summon on the Z-Metal Tank that's in my hand.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 1500
DEF: 1300

Yami Bakura: (shocked) X-Head Cannon, Y-Dragon Head, and Z-Metal Tank?

Tucker: Yep. And you know what that means, right? I can combine them, creating the XYZ-Dragon Cannon.

The small connection port on the Bottom of X-Head Cannon starts spinning, and forms electricity. Y-Dragon Head's center opens, creating a hole as it sparks. The connection port on Z-Metal Tank starts sparking too. X-Head Cannon's Connection port goes though Y-Dragon Head's. All ports come together magnetically, forming a new monster.

ATK: 2800
DEF: 2600

Tucker: Now I'll use my monster's card effect: discarding one card from my hand to the graveyard, I can destroy one card that's on the field. So I discard the Roboyarou in my hand…

He sends the card to the graveyard part of his Duel Disk. The weapons on XYZ-Dragon Cannon start charging up.

Tucker: …And I can destroy that Mask of Remnant.

XYZ-Dragon Cannon shoots its laser guns in a Barrage of gun fire at the Mask of Remnant. The mask disintegrates and Invader of Darkness returns to Sam's side of the field.

Yami Bakura: Did you forget my Trap card? Now you'll lose 500 Life Points thanks to my Magic Thorn.

His trap card glows. Tucker's hand was still near his graveyard part of his Duel Disk when a silver vive of thorns hits him like a whip.

Tucker: ouch!

Tucker: 7750

Tucker: Well now I'll attack. XYZ-Dragon Cannon, attack Lumis Directly!

XYZ-Dragon Cannon shoots its laser guns in a Barrage of gun fire at Lumis and it makes a direct hit.

Lumis: 4000

Tucker: And I'll leave it at that.

Umbra moves his hand over his deck and a card gets pushed out. He takes the card and looks at it.

Umbra: Not much I can do except set this facedown.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Disk and it appears facedown in front of him.

Danny: Then it's my turn, now.

He draws a card from his deck and looks at it.

Danny: I'll start my summoning my Susa Solder again.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the summoned monster appears on the field.

ATK: 2000
DEF: 1600

Sam: Invader of Darkness; control shift to Danny and Follow his orders.

Tucker: You to, XYZ-Dragon Cannon.

Both Invader of Darkness and XYZ-Dragon Cannon move towards Danny's side of the field.

Danny: (To Tucker and Sam) Thanks guys. (To Team Bakura) And now I'll have them attack. First I'll use my Susa Solder. Attack Lumis Directly!

Susa Solder drew its sword a charged at Lumis.

Lumis: HA! You fell for my trap!

He pushes a button on the arm part of his Duel Vest and his facedown card flips up.

Lumis: My Mirror Force destroys every monster that's in attack mode.

A Rainbow colored glass appears in front of Lumis and Danny's Susa Solder Strikes it. The glass shatters but the pieces send out energy beams, striking Invader of Darkness, XYZ-Dragon Cannon and Susa Solder, destroying all of them.

Lumis: I can't believe you fell for an obvious trap.

Danny: (Annoyed) Yeah, I'm a piece of work. I end my turn.

Yami Bakura: (Takes pushed card, looks at it) Hmm, not much of good hand. However, I can change that.

He takes his facedown monster and flips it face up in attack mode, revealing it as a Morphing Jar. The hologram card does the some thing.

ATK: 700
DEF: 600

Yami Bakura: I reveal my facedown monster to be my Morphing Jar. And when this card is flipped up, its card flip effect activates, discarding the cards in our hand, and drawing five new cards from our decks. And since my Trap is still in play, Danny loses 1500 Life Points for his three cards, and Sam loses 500 for the one card she has.

Whoever had cards in their hands discarded them to their graveyards. Danny and Sam get hit by the same silver vine of thorns…

Sam: 3900

Danny: 7000

…then everyone drew five cards from their decks.

Yami Bakura: (Looks at cards) Ah, much better. I'll now sacrifice my Morphing Jar to summon my Dark Ruler Has Des.

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest, the Morphing Jar disintegrates and the newly summoned monster appears in its place.

ATK: 2450
DEF: 1600

Yami Bakura: Now, I'll have him attack directly. Strike young Samantha with your Fiend lightning!

Dark Ruler creates lightning in his hand and shoots a bolt towards Sam.

Danny: Hold on, Bakura! You may not me helpful to your teammates, but I am to mine. So I'll Chain your attack with my Quick-Play magic card to protect Sam!

He puts the card in his Duel Disk and it appears on the field. An orange book with an open-eye symbol on it appears from the card and opens.

Danny: Book of Taiyou flips a facedown monster to face up attack mode, and I choose my facedown monster.

The book glows and Danny's facedown monster flips up, revealing it to be a Cyber Jar.

ATK: 900
DEF: 900

Danny: Cyber Jar. And you know what that means!

Cyber Jar then self-destructs, Taking Dark Ruler Has Des with it. The explosion cancels out the attack towards Sam.

Danny: When Cyber Jar is destroyed, all monsters on the field are destroyed as well. And then we draw five cards from our decks and Special Summon any low level monster we draw.

Everyone now draws five cards from their decks.

Danny: I've drawn three monsters, but two of them are spirit-types, so they can't come out by means of Special Summon. But my Vorse Raider is fair game.

He put the card on his Duel Disk and the monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 1900
DEF: 1200

Yami Bakura: I've drawn three. Fear from the Dark, Blindly Loyal Goblin, and Archfiend Solder.

He puts the cards on the arm part of his Duel Vest and the three monster appear in front of him

Fear from the Dark:
ATK: 1700
DEF: 1500

Blindly Loyal Goblin:
ATK: 1800
DEF: 1500

Archfiend Solder:
ATK: 1900
DEF: 1500

Sam: I have two monsters, Master Kyonshee and Spirit Reaper.

She puts the cards on her Duel Disk and the monsters appear in front of her.

Master Kyonshee:
ATK: 1750
DEF: 1000

Spirit Reaper:
ATK: 300
DEF: 200

Lumis: I only have one, my Melchid the Four-Faced Beast.

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest and the monster appears in front of him.

Melchid the Four-Faced Beast:
ATK: 1500
DEF: 1200

Tucker: Well, I have two, V-Tiger Jet and W-Wing Catapult

He put the cards on his Duel Disk and the monsters appear in front of him.

V-Tiger Jet:
ATK: 1600
DEF: 1800

W-Wing Catapult:
ATK: 1300
DEF: 1500

Umbra: I've got two, but I'll have them in defense mode.

He puts the cards on the arm part of his Duel Vest and the two monster cards appear facedown in front of him.

Yami Bakura: Now, it's still my Battle Phase, so I'll have my Archfiend Solder attack. Strike down Samantha's Spirit Reaper!

Archfiend Solder strikes Spirit Reaper with its claw. However, the attack did nothing.

Yami Bakura: What? Why is that monster still out.

Sam: (Smiles) because my Spirit Reaper's card effect keeps him from being destroyed in battle. However, I still take damage.

Sam: 2300

Yami Bakura: (Smiles) that you do. Well then, Blindly Loyal Goblin, attack her Master Kyonshee!

Blindly Loyal Goblin pulled out its sword and strikes Master Kyonshee, destroying him.

Sam: 2250

Yami Bakura: And now I'll attack again. Fear from the Dark; strike her Spirit Reaper!

The monster becomes a shadow and it moves towards Spirit Reaper.

Sam: Sorry, but that won't work twice. (Pushes button on Duel Disk) I activate my trap, Magic Cylinder!

Her facedown card flips up and it forms two cylinders. The Shadow enters one of them and the same shadow appears out of the other cylinder, making a direct hit on Yami Bakura.

Yami Bakura: 4400

Yami Bakura: (Angry) Grrr. I end my turn buy setting two cards facedown.

He puts the cards in his arm part of his Duel Vest and the cards appear facedown in front of him.

Sam: my go again. (Draws card) I play my Polymerization, (puts card in Duel Disk) fusing my Spirit Reaper with the Nightmare Horse in my hand.

The magic card is shown on the field. The two monsters are shown twirling together, forming a new monster. As Sam takes the correct fusion monster from her fusion deck and puts it on her Duel Disk, the fusion finishes, forming the new monster.

Sam: Meet my Reaper on the Nightmare.

ATK: 800
DEF: 600

Sam: He may not have much strength, but he makes that up with his card effects. One is that he can bypass my opponents' monsters and attack them directly.

The horse part of the monster lets out a ghostly whinny before charging towards Yami Bakura. Yami Bakura's monsters prepare to defend, but the monster jumps over them like hurtles and the Reaper riding the horse strikes Yami Bakura with its scythe.

Yami Bakura: 3600

Sam: And that's not all. When he attacks directly, he forces you to discard one random card from your hand.

The monster now takes one of Yami Bakura's cards and sends it to the graveyard.

Sam: Now I'll just set two cards facedown.

She puts the cards in her Duel Disk and they appear facedown in front of her.

Sam: And I'll set a monster facedown in defense mode.

She puts the card on her Duel Disk and the monster card appears facedown in front of her.

Sam: and that's all for me.

Lumis: (takes pushed card) my turn. And first I reveal my second facedown card.

He pushes a button on the arm part of his Duel Vest and his facedown card flips up.

Lumis: My trap card, Labyrinth of Nightmare. As long as this card is in play, every time we end our turns, our face-up monsters switch from whatever mode they are in. next I play a magic card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Disk and the magic card is shown on the field.

Lumis: My Fissure destroys the weakest monster on my opponents' side of the field. And the only monster that falls into that category is Samantha's Reaper on the Nightmare.

The ground under Reaper on the Nightmare starts to crumble, forming a hole that takes the monster down, destroying it.

Lumis: (To Yami Bakura) master, I need a monster.

Yami Bakura: I'll lend you my Fear from the Dark.

Fear from the Dark moves towards Lumis's side of the field.

Lumis: Now I'll sacrifice Fear from the Dark and my Four-Faced Beast, in order to summon my Masked Beast Des Guardius!

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest. The two monsters disintegrate as the newly summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 3300
DEF: 2500

Lumis: Next I play my Stop Defense, (Puts card in arm part of Duel Vest) switching that facedown monster face up.

The magic card is shown on the field and Sam's facedown card glows. It flips up in attack mode, revealing it to be a Double Coston.

ATK: 1700
DEF: 1650

Umbra: and to make sure that you don't try and stop Lumis with your facedown cards, I activate mine.

He pushes a button on the arm part of his Duel Vest and his facedown card flip up.

Umbra: When Xing Zhen Hu activate, it keeps two facedown cards from activating.

Sam's facedown cards receive large wooden boxes, tided up to the cards, keeping them from flipping face-up.

Sam: NO!

Lumis: Oh yes! Attack Des Guardius, Lunging claw-thrust!

Masked Beast Des Guardius rushes towards Double Coston, striking it with its claw and destroying it.

Sam: 650

Lumis: One more attack and the shadows will feast on your soul.

Sam: uh…Eww!

Yami Bakura: Lumis; take my Archfiend Solder and finish her off. I want to see the fear in her eyes when she loses and is taken by the shadows.

Archfiend Solder moves towards Lumis's side of the field.

Lumis: Alright Archfiend Solder, attack young Samantha directly!

Archfiend Solder charges at Sam, pulling out a fiendish sword, ready to strike.

Yami Bakura: (Laughs evilly) Farewell, Samantha!

Sam just guarded herself with her Duel Disk, prepared to take the final blow.

Danny: Not if I can help it! VORSE RAIDER, DEFEND SAM!

Vorse Raider runs towards the path between Sam and Archfiend Solder. Archfiend Solder swung his sword, but Vorse Raider blocked it with its sword/staff weapon. Both weapons connected and both monsters started to glow. They then both got destroyed.

Yami Bakura: (Annoyed) Hmm. (To Danny) I should have expected you to do something to protect your girlfriend.

Danny: She's not my-

Yami Bakura: (interrupts) Oh, get over yourself! I can tell your lying; I can read your mind, if you've forgotten! And I can look into your soul with my millennium ring.

As he says this, his Duel Vest opens, revealing his millennium ring. Both that and the millennium eye start to flicker.

Yami Bakura: You say that you're not infatuated with young Samantha, but the fact is that you are. But you're afraid that if others found out the truth, especially your enemies, they would go after her. And you know that if anything would happen to her, her blood would be on your hands! You're Emotions are your greatest weakness. (Looks over to Sam) and you, Samantha-

Sam: Seriously, the full name thing: it's getting annoying!

Yami Bakura: (continues) you won't admit that you have feelings for Danny, and you're afraid that when you do, you won't be good enough for him. You're afraid that he's too clueless to figure out that you like him. Well, if it makes you feel better; he's not clueless, he knows that you like him. It's all there in you hearts, minds and souls.

Sam: If you're done with your little mind games, it's Tucker's turn.

At that point, Yami Bakura's Duel Vest closes again.

Yami Bakura: (to Lumis) Lumis?

Lumis: I end my turn with a facedown card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and it appears facedown in front of him.

Lumis: And since it's the end of my turn, my Des Guardius switches to defense mode thanks to my trap.

Masked Beast Des Guardius kneels down on one leg and guards itself with its arms.

Tucker: Alright, my turn. (Draws card) and the first thing I'll do is play my Monster Reborn, (Puts card in Duel Disk) bringing back my XYZ-Dragon Cannon.

The magic card is shown on the field, tucker's graveyard glows and the XYZ-Dragon Cannon returns to the field.

ATK: 2800
DEF: 2600

Tucker: And next I activate my Monster's card effect: I discard from my hand and I can destroy any one card. Sure, I'll lose 500 Life Points because of that trap…

He discards from his hand and the silver vine of thorns strikes him.

Tucker: 7250

Tucker: …But it's worth it to destroy Umbra's trap card.

The weapons on XYZ-Dragon Cannon start charging up. XYZ-Dragon Cannon shoots its laser guns in a Barrage of gun fire at the Xing Zhen Hu trap card, destroying it, and freeing Sam's facedown cards.

Tucker: Next I activate my W-Wing Catapult's card effect. Since he's a Union-type monster, I can combine him with another. I combine W-Wing Catapult with my V-Tiger Jet.

W-Wing Catapult opens a compartment and V-Tiger Jet connects to that part, forming a new monster.

Tucker: Say hello to the VW-Tiger Catapult.

ATK: 2000
DEF: 2100

Tucker: But wait, there's more. Well, technically, less.

Yami Bakura: What do you mean?

Tucker: Well, my VW monster and my XYZ monster can combine again to form one big monster. You know how they say two is better than one? I have to disagree at this point.

Both the two monsters take to the air and they all disassemble. The caterpillar tracks on Z-Metal Tank detach and split in half and they reattach to X-Head cannon's arms and the body attaches to the back.

Tucker: Especially when the one in question is the one…

The Wings on Y-Dragon head start to move to X-head Cannon's back. VW-Tiger Catapult disassembles and the V-Tiger Jet attaches to the back, followed by the wings. And the V-Tiger Jet's head covers X-head Cannon's.

Tucker: …The only…

W-Wing Catapult splits in half and turn into legs, which is then attached to the bottom of Y-Dragon Head. The transformation is complete.

Tucker: …THE VWXYZ-DRAGON CATAPULT CANNON!

ATK: 3000
DEF: 2800

Yami Bakura: (in shock) it's… its enormous!

Tucker: You bet he is. And he has some kick-ass card effects. For example: once per turn, I can remove from play one card on the field belonging to my opponent. And I'll remove that Magic Thorn.

The VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon shoots a beam from one of its cannons and it hits Magic Thorn, making it disappears.

Tucker: Next I'll have it attack. And that's when its next card effect happens: when it attacks, it can change the mode of the monster it's attacking.

VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon shoots another beam from another of its cannons and it hits one of Umbra's facedown monsters, flipping it and revealing it as a Rogue Doll.

ATK: 1600
DEF: 1000

Tucker: Now attack! With your Dragon Catapult Cannons!

All the cannons charge on VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon and they all shoot towards Masked Doll, destroying it completely.

Umbra: 5900

Tucker: All I have to do now is set two facedowns.

He puts the cards in his Duel Disk and they both appear facedown in front of him.

Tucker: And that's that.

Lumis: Don't forget about my trap. Labyrinth of Nightmare forces your monster into defense mode.

VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon kneels down on one leg and guards itself with its arms.

Umbra: (Takes pushed card) my turn. And I start by playing a magic card, (puts card in arm part of Duel Vest) My Mask of the Accursed.

The magic card is shown on the field. A brown mask with nails on it appears and it makes its way to Tucker's VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon, covering its face.

Tucker: Hey! What's going on?

Umbra: Mask of the Accursed is an Equip-magic card that keeps your monster from attacking. Not only that but every one of your Standby Phases, you lose 500 Life Points ever turn that mask stays on your Dragon Catapult Cannon.

Tucker: Oh, snap!

Umbra: Next I play my second Curse of the Masked Beast Ritual magic card.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the magic card is shown on the field. The same alter from before appears from the card.

Umbra: I sacrifice the Shining Abyss that's on the field, along with the Rogue Doll that's in my hand, in order to summon my second Masked Beast.

Both the monsters are shown on the field before the flames of the altar consumes the monster. Umbra puts the Ritual monster on the arm part of his Duel Vest as the monster is shown, coming from the flames.

ATK: 3200
DEF: 1800

Umbra: Now, I could get rid of that "Megazord" wannabe, but then that would also get rid of the mask. And since you can't use it to defend your teammates, I'll have my Masked Beast attack young Samantha directly.

Masked Beast runs towards Sam, its staff weapon ready to strike her.

Sam: Sorry, Black Mask, but you forgot something.

Umbra: What?

Sam pushes a button on her Duel Disk and one of her facedown cards flips up.

Sam: My trap card: Compulsory Evacuation Device.

As the Masked Beast makes its way towards Sam, a large machine-like device with an "EXIT" sign over a cylindrical entrance appears in front of her. The machine starts sucking the Masked Beast into the machine. The top of the device launches off and shoots a capital into the air. The card is then returned to Umbra's hand.

Yami Bakura: (To Umbra in an angry tone) you moron! How could you forget her facedowns?

Sam: Well, unless that you have another Ritual card, I don't think that Masked Beast is coming back.

Umbra: Fine. I'll just end my turn.

Danny: And that's my cue (draws card). To start things off, I'll throw down three facedowns.

He puts the cards in his Duel Disk and three cards appear facedown in front of him.

Danny: And then I play a magic card.

He puts the card in his Duel Disk and the magic card is shown on the field.

Yami Bakura: What is that?

Danny: This, Bakura, is known as Next World (A/N: from Noah's Final Threat, parts 1 and 2). Allow me to explain: you see this card lets me Normal Summon a spirit monster from my hand. "What makes this different" you ask? Well, the spirit monster I summon can have the same star level as any monster you have out and it still counts as a Normal Summon. And since this is a team duel, I'm guessing you'll know what level the monster will be.

Yami Bakura: (thinking) Oh-no! Lumis's Des Guardius is still on the field! AND IT'S A LEVEL EIGHT MONSTER!

Danny: With the magic of my Next World, I'll summon my Level-eight spirit monster: Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi!

He puts the card on his Duel Disk. The magic card and Masked Beast Des Guardius glows as the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 2800
DEF: 2900

Danny: And if you think he's hot now, then check out his card effect: when he deals damage to a player, that same player has to discard their whole hand before they can conduct their next Draw Phase. Now let him have it, Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi, attack Bakura's Goblin with your fire punch!

Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi's fists start to be engulfed in flames as he charges at Blindly Loyal Goblin. He strikes a punch at the goblin, destroying it in flames.

Yami Bakura: 2600

Danny: And that's it for my turn, and you know what that means.

Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi glows and disappears as the monster card returns to Danny's hand.

Danny: My Spring of Rebirth activates. This time I'll give the 500 Life Points to Sam.

Sam: 1150

Sam: Thanks, Danny.

Yami Bakura: Grrr. Alright, it's my turn.

Danny: don't forget my monster's effect.

Yami Bakura: I remember. I doubt it would matter.

He discards all the cards in his hand and takes card that's been pushed out from his deck.

Yami Bakura: I've still got a few tricks up my sleeves.

Danny: Well, then maybe I should do this before I let those tricks perform. (Pushes button on Duel Disk) since it's now officially your turn, I can activate my trap card.

One of his facedown cards flips up.

Danny: It's called "End Turn."

Yami Bakura: "End Turn"? I've seen it before. A boy by the name of Ron Stoppable has that very same card.

Danny: "Ron Stoppable"? Well what coincidence, that's how I got this card; it was in a trade I made with Ron after our duel with his team yesterday. So I guess you know what it does, right? Well, in case you forget, I pay 2000 Life Points to automatically end your turn and bring it back to my turn. So here I go! (Draws card)

Danny: 5000

Danny: And next I reveal my other facedown cards.

He pushes two buttons on his Duel Disk and his facedown cards flip up.

Danny: Sprit's Invitation and Ultimate Offerings. First, I'll tap into my Ultimate Offerings; I can perform an extra Normal Summon at a cost of 500 Life Points per monster. So I'll use my first Normal Summon on my Yata-Garasu.

He puts the card on his Duel Disk and the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 200
DEF: 100

Danny: Now I pay 1500 Life Points to perform three other summonses: Maharaghi, Asura Priest, and Otohime.

Danny: 3500

He puts the cards on his Duel Disk and the summoned monsters appear in front of him.

Maharaghi:
ATK: 1200
DEF: 1700

Asura Priest:
ATK: 1700
DEF: 1200

Otohime:
ATK: 0
DEF: 100

Danny: One more summon. I sacrifice my Otohime and Maharaghi to summon my Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi!

Danny: 3000

He puts the card on his Duel Disk. The two monsters disintegrate as the summoned monster appears in front of him.

ATK: 2800
DEF: 2900

Danny: And now I attack. I'll just finish you off now and I'll have no worries. Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi, attack Bakura Directly!

Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi's fists start to be engulfed in flames as he charges at Yami Bakura.

Lumis: I won't let you hurt our master. Des Guardius, Defend Bakura!

Masked Beast Des Guardius runs in front of Yami Bakura and takes the blow of Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi, thus being destroyed.

Danny: Oh nuts.

Lumis: And you know what that means.

The three blue masks that were on the Masked Beast Des Guardius were still there, floating in the air. A lone card pops out of Lumis's deck and he takes it. The three masks started to spin together in a very high speed. He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest as they combine; becoming one big red mask.

Lumis: my second Mask of Remnant activates and lets us take control of that Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi.

The mask then makes its way towards Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi.

Tucker: I don't think so.

He pushes a button on his Duel Disk and one of his facedown cards flips up.

Tucker: My Spell Shield Type-8 negates that Card's activation and destroys it.

The trap card glows. The Mask of Remnant heading towards Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi hits an invisible wall, the wall then makes the shield disintegrates.

Danny: Thanks, Tuck! It's your turn, Asura Priest, attack Lumis directly.

The monster's four arms produce swords and it throws them towards Lumis. The swords strike Lumis on the chest part of the Duel Vest.

Lumis: 2300

Danny: Now I'll have my feathered friend attack. Strike Bakura, Yata-Garasu. Fiend Peck!

Yata-Garasu files towards Yami Bakura and pecks him a few times, but it didn't faze him.

Yami Bakura: 2400

Yami Bakura: Well, what was the point of that? You're little bird barely hurt me

Danny: That may be true, but his card effect makes so you can't do your Draw Phase when he deals damage to you.

Yami Bakura: Grrr. I'm well aware of what it can do.

Danny: well, nothing left to do but end my turn.

Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi, Yata-Garasu and Asura Priest glow and disappear as the three monster cards return to Danny's hand.

Danny: That's three monsters, so I get 1500 Life Points from Spring of Rebirth. And once again, they'll go to Sam.

Sam: 2650

Danny: It's your turn, Bakura. And I doubt that one card will help you.

Yami Bakura: That's what you think. The card I have is a magic card, (puts card in arm part of Duel Vest) Pot of Greed.

The magic card is shown on the field.

Yami Bakura: Now I draw two cards (does so). Next I play Premature Burial.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the magic card is shown on the field.

Yami Bakura: I pay 800 Life Points to bring back my Blindly Loyal Goblin.

Yami Bakura: 1600

His graveyard glows and the monster he chooses returns to the field.

ATK: 1800
DEF: 1500

Yami Bakura: but he won't stay there long, because I'm going to sacrifice him in order to summon my most powerful monster.

Danny: I don't like the looks of this.

Yami Bakura: Now, prepare yourself…

He puts the card on the arm part of his Duel Vest, the Blindly Loyal Goblin disintegrates and the newly summoned monster appears in its place.

Yami Bakura: For my Diabound Colonel!

ATK: 1800
DEF: 1200

Yami Bakura: Sure, he may not look much, but my beast has a powerful card effect. But first, I reveal one of my facedown cards.

He pushes a button on his Duel Vest and one of his facedown cards flips up.

Yami Bakura: My Jar of Greed lets me draw one card from my deck. (Does so, looks at it) Ah, perfect! I play the magic card Riryoku.

He puts the card in the arm part of his Duel Vest and the magic card is shown on the field.

Yami Bakura: Now I can take half the ATK of one monster and add it to my Diabound. I choose Tucker's VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon.

Both VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon and Diabound Colonel glow.

VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon:
ATK: 1500
DEF: 2800

Diabound Colonel:
ATK: 3300
DEF: 1200

Yami Bakura: Now attack! Helical Shockwave!

Diabound Colonel creates electricity in its arms and it strikes down Tucker's VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon.

Yami Bakura: And that's all for my turn, and the effects of Riryoku.

Diabound Colonel:
ATK: 3300
DEF: 1200

Tucker: Wait, why didn't its ATK points decrease?

Yami Bakura: Oh, did I forget to explain my Diabound's card effect? Well allow me to explain: you see, every time my Diabound Colonel successfully destroys a monster, he receives half its ATK points.

Tucker, Sam and Danny: WHAT?

Yami Bakura: That's right. And don't think that if any of you destroys him and if I bring him back, his ATK will return to 1800, because the ATK points stay will stay on him for the remainder of the duel.

Danny: (in disbelief) you're kidding me!

Yami Bakura: You see now, Danny Phantom? You can't win, I have the upper hand! (Laughs Evilly)

Danny: (Thinking) great. We're playing a Shadow game where the loser is sent to the shadow realm; me, Sam and Tucker are losing Life Points and fast; and we have to deal with a monster that gets stronger every time it wastes a monster. I don't know HOW it can get any worst!


Wanna bet, Danny? Unfortunately, it will have to wait until next chapter. But keep reading and reviewing.
