The Ticking Clock!, known as Time Record!! in the Japanese version, is the twentieth chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist in the English version and the seventy ninth chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! in the Japanese version.

Katsuya Jonouchi continues his Duel with Dinosaur Ryuzaki. "Flame Swordsman" can easily dispose of Ryuzaki's Dinosaurs, but Ryuzaki knows he has a powerful card that can defeat it.



"Flame Swordsman" slices "Megasaurus" in half, dropping Ryuzaki’s Life Points to 1460. Jonouchi invites Ryuzaki to say hello to his strongest monster. Jonouchi's friends cheer, but Mai calls it a lucky shot and claims that Jonouchi doesn’t stand a chance against her slave. Anzu tosses Mai and look and reminds her that Jonouchi had beaten her a few hours ago. Mai writes it off as luck, and says that Jonouchi had cheated anyway, since he had gotten help from Yugi. The girls exchange vicious glares before Anzu and Yugi go back to cheering for Jonouchi.

Ryuzaki worries about the "Flame Swordsman's" high ATK and advantage over Dinosaurs, but knows his Deck has a powerful card, that can defeat it. He draws in the hopes of hitting this ultimate power, but instead gets something else. He starts to mildly panic and Summons "Uraby", before ending his turn.

Jonouchi has "Flame Swordsman" attack "Two-Headed King Rex". Using its “Tôki Enzan Ken" attack, "Flame Swordsman" slices King Rex's head off, destroying it and dropping Ryuzaki’s Life Points to 720.

Mai starts to scold Ryuzaki over how poorly he's doing. Annoyed at her arrogance he looks forward to beating her after he takes out Jonouchi.

Yugi is anxious that Jonouchi may be letting his advantage get to him. Jonouchi hasn’t won yet and Yugi is sure that Ryuzaki will pull something stronger than "Flame Swordsman".

Ryuzaki begins his turn and frowns over not drawing the powerful card again. He Summons "Crawling Dragon #2" in Defense Mode, calling it "The Carrion Dragon".

"Flame Swordsman" easily beheads the dragon. Jonouchi's friends cheer and Mai yells at Ryuzaki again.

Ryuzaki tells her to shut up and concentrates as he draws his next card. Ryuzaki smirks, as he is after getting his ultimate card. He Summons "Red-Eyes Black Dragon", which stands proudly at 2400 ATK. Jonouchi is surprised at how powerful the card is. Yugi recognizes it as a legendary rare card, which collectors pay hundreds of thousands of yen for. Ryuzaki notes that it isn't as powerful as the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", but he spent everything he had to get it.

Being Dark, "Red-Eyes" doesn't get a Field Power Bonus, but is still strong enough to take out Jonouchi's "Flame Swordsman". "Red-Eyes" launches its "Black Fire Bullet" attack, taking out "Flame Swordsman" and dropping Jonouchi's Life Points to a mere 65.

Jonouchi and his friends begin to worry, unsure if Jonouchi can turn this Duel around, while Mai is impressed with Ryuzaki. Anzu asks Yugi if there is any way Jonouchi can win. Yugi knows that Jonouchi can win with "Time Wizard", since "Time Wizard" has a second effect that can be used without "Baby Dragon". It would spin its roulette, stopping at a random section, which would dictate the fate of the monsters. This would give Jonouchi a one in three chance, but there's no other way he can win. However Yugi had promises Jonouchi that he wouldn't help, so he keeps quite.

Jonouchi draws and begins to worry. Ryuzaki is conscious that Jonouchi has "Time Wizard" face-down", but deduces that he neither knows how to use the card nor is brave enough to play it. Thinking of "Time Wizard", he remembers that Jonouchi had used it to defeat Mai, so if he could get this card himself, he should have no problem beating Mai. Ryuzaki imposes a gamble; if he wins, he gets to take the "Time Wizard" card, but if Jonouchi wins, he gets the "Red-Eyes Black Dragon", which is worth a few hundred thousand yen. Mai becomes furious and bangs on the window to the arena, telling Ryuzaki that she won't allow that trade and as her slave he should obey. Ryuzaki yells back that he isn’t her slave. While the two bicker, Jonouchi ponders on how the few hundred thousand yen could help him and accepts the bet.

While Ryuzaki and Mai continue to argue, Jonouchi wonders if "Time Wizard" could be a really powerful card, since they're making such a fuss over it. He assures himself the card is good and that he'll play it, even though he doesn't know what it does.

Jonouchi Summons a monster in Defense Mode and flips the "Time Wizard" Spell Card. Ryuzaki and Mai look back in surprise. Yugi is excited that Jonouci figured out how to use the card.

"Time Wizard" spins its "Roulette of Time", landing on a win. It uses its "Time Magic", aging Ryuzaki’s monsters thousands of years, turning them into fossils.

Ryuzaki's Life Points drop to 0. Jonouchi's friends and Mai all let out a large cheer for Jonouchi. Anzu looks over at Mai, who embarrassedly lets out an "oops". Ryuzaki relinquishes his "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" and 2 of his Star Chips to Jonouchi, who now has 4 Star Chips.
