The duel between Mai Valentine and Yugi Muto continues. Yugi is down to 300 Life Points while Mai still has all of hers. Yugi and Yami continue to struggle internally. Mai then explains what happened after her Duel with Joey. It made her realize that the reason why she cheated in her Duels was because she was afraid of losing and of trusting herself. She also says a Duelist can learn more from a defeat than from a victory. After the conversation with both Mai and Yami, Yugi realizes he has to face his fear as well, and finally lets Yami Duel without holding him back. Yugi uses Brain Control to take control of Harpie's Pet Dragon, then Tributes for Catapult Turtle's effect. This not only subtracts half of the dragon's ATK from Mai's Life Points, it also destroys Mai's Mirror Wall. Yugi also finds out that Shadow of Eyes cannot affect female monsters, so he Summons Mystical Elf in Defense Position.

However, Mai uses Monster Reborn to Special Summon Harpie's Pet Dragon and uses her Harpie Lady Sisters to destroy Mystical Elf, wiping out Yugi's final defense. Luckily for him, he draws Swords of Revealing Light and activates it, preventing Mai from attacking for three turns. During those turns, Yugi Summons Kuriboh and Gaia the Fierce Knight, then Tributes them for Black Luster Ritual, Ritual Summoning the mighty Black Luster Soldier, which destroys Harpie's Pet Dragon. Losing her most powerful monster and not willing to watch her Harpie Lady Sisters be destroyed, Mai forfeits the Duel.
