The first duel of the Duelist Kingdom finals between Mai Valentine and Yugi Motou begins. This time, Mai is playing without cheating. The Duel does not start off very well for Yugi, as Mai's Mirror Wall cuts all of Yugi's attacking monsters' ATK in half, making them easy pickings for Mai's powered-up Harpie Lady. Mai's Shadow of Eyes prevents him from playing any of his monsters in Defense Position, and her Harpie's Feather Duster destroys two of Yugi's strongest Trap Cards, Spellbinding Circle and Mirror Force. To make things worse, Yugi and Yami continue to internally clash for control of the Duel, as Yugi will not let Yami Duel, for fear that he might recklessly hurt someone as he almost did when Seto threatened to kill himself if Yugi won. With only 300 Life Points left, can Yugi get over his fear and make a come-from-behind victory, or will he be eliminated and lose his chance to save his grandfather and the Kaiba brothers?
