* The first time he duels on screen, he takes a 2400 ATK lightning bolt to the face [[NervesOfSteel without the slightest flinch]], and proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle stomp the main character in only six turns]].

* The first time he duels on screen, he takes a 2400 ATK lightning bolt to the face [[NervesOfSteel without the slightest flinch]], and proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle stomp the main character in only six turns]]. His final attack ([[SignatureMove Power Bond-summoned Cyber End Dragon]] destroying [[StoneWall Mudball Man]] for 5000 points of piercing damage) ''alone'' would have been enough to win the duel.



* He only gets one duel in the manga, but ''damn'' does he make a statement with it. [[AdaptationalBadass Manjyome]] earns the right to duel Ryo after defeating Judai in the finals of a tournament. Jun goes in cocky, gets three of his best monsters on the field in his first turn... and then gets [[CurbStompBattle obliterated]] on ''Ryo's'' [[OneHitKill first turn]], without doing a single point of damage. ''No one'' messes with the Kaiser.

Added DiffLines:

* Another Season 1 moment, but the scene where he first pulls out Miracle Fusion on [[spoiler: Professor Banner]] to win the duel, summoning Elemental Hero Electrum for the first time, and it's notable for originally being one of ''the'' strongest Elemental Heroes in base attack points alone at the time, topping at ''2900 ATK Points''.

* The whole of Hell Kaiser's final duel against the Yubel-possessed Johan. Especially right at the end when he plays Cybernetic Zone, removing his own Cyber End Dragon from play and then re-summoning it with ''sixteen thousand'' attack points. This {{Determinator}} takes DefiantToTheEnd and DyingMomentOfAwesome to whole new levels, [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled refusing to let Yubel take him out]] and leaving that image of Cyber End as an immortal symbol of his HeroicResolve.

* Everything he does in Season 3. This is a nineteen-year-old who is dying of a crippling heart condition, and he decides that the only acceptable response to that is to find the toughest duel he possibly can and [[DoNotGoGentle go out fighting]]. He [[SecretlyDying hides his condition]], [[{{Determinator}} powers through the pain and weakness]], [[DontYouDarePityMe refuses to accept help or pity even when he can barely stand]], and snaps TheHero out of a ''bad'' HeroicBSOD with his awe-inspiring final duel (see above).

[[AC:Ryo "Kaiser" Marufuji/ Zane Truesdale]]
* The first time he duels on screen, he takes a 2400 ATK lightning bolt to the face [[NervesOfSteel without the slightest flinch]], and proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle stomp the main character in only six turns]].
* His duel against Camula is a strategic masterpiece. He outplays her at every turn and does not lose a single life point until she pulls the dirtiest cheat possible and forces a SadisticChoice. Win the duel and save his own soul (which he ''still'' could have done despite his field wiped clear and his best monster under Camula's control), or lose and save his little brother. Ryo looks at Cyber End Dragon and ''stands down'', bracing himself to take the 4000-point attack straight on. He even manages to stay on his feet out of sheer willpower for a few seconds after the counter hits zero.
* His Graduation Duel against Judai in the finale of Season 1. In particular, the end of that duel is a crowning moment of awesome for both of them. First, Kaiser summons Cyber End Dragon with Power Bond and Cybernetic Fusion Support, doubling its attack points to 8,000. He then plays Limiter Removal to double its attack ''again'' to 16,000. Once he attacks with it, Judai reveals his Battle Fusion quick play spell that adds his opponent's monster's attack to his own monster's, raising his Shining Flare Wingman's attack to ''20,900''. Kaiser then ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness smiles]]''... and then activates ''his own copy of Battle Fusion'', which raises Cyber End Dragon's attack to '''''36,900'''''. Judai's response? Activate a trap that causes them both to take damage equal to all the monsters on both sides of the field. The two monsters then clash in an ''epic explosion''. Even better? Cyber End held the record for highest finite number of attack points for nearly ''eight years'' after this finale.
* In season 3, when Zane and Aster play a MookHorrorShow on two of the Supreme King's goblin henchmen.
--->'''Both goblins:''' I told you all I know... have mercy just let me go!
--->'''Zane:''' Of course... but first, I need to finish what I started and...
--->(cut screen)
--->'''Aster:''' ...turn you into star dust.

* For those who watched the [[Anime/YuGiOh original series]], seeing Pegasus post HeelFaceTurn engage in a duel is sure to trigger some good nostalgia; he's apparently recovered his gaming skills during the gap between the two series, and gets to show it off in a Triangle Duel between Crowler, Bonaparte and himself. He still uses his Toons, but they're the nerfed versions from the official card game, and his "Toon Kingdom" card is actually ''less'' powerful than its real life equivalent. He ''annihilates'' both of the teachers regardless, even after they start ganging up on him.

* During the fourth season, names on lists begin to disappear one by one as Trueman defeats them or just outright sends them to the World of Darkness until one name on a list of KaibaCorp employees is left. The name? [[spoiler:Seto Kaiba]].

** Summoning Magma Neos which defeats Vennominaga and wins Jaden the duel against Cobra. The animation sequence of the 3 monsters required for this fusion merging together was also very well done with the art making them appear as {{Badass}} as possible.

** Really, the entire duel between Jaden and [[spoiler:Yubel]] is awesome. It gets about as intense as an InvincibleHero and an InvincibleVillain fighting with a card game can get, with both of them employing every trick in their arsenals, [[spoiler:Yubel]] not holding back on the physical or mental assaults ''at all'' and Jaden using all of his CharacterDevelopment to overcome them and fight on, eventually even managing to [[spoiler:redeem Yubel]] after everything that happened. It was a great way to end the season (or the series in the dub's case, even if the ending was decidedly rushed).

* Hayato gets his time in the sun just before he leaves Duel Academy to be a card designer for Maximillion Pegasus himself. He had to duel Professor Crowler in order to get the school's permission. Chumley, a mediocre duelist at best, got to summon his most powerful creature and power it up ''with a card he himself designed'' (Chumley being an exceptional artist), but was countered by Crowler's face-down card and defeated. But Crowler's still impressed with Chumley's performance that showed his improvement from previous years, gave his approval and allows him to pursue his dream job anyway. It was such an awesome moment that Crowler would have thrown the duel right then if he could.

* Hayato Hayato/Chumley gets an epic way of heading out. First off, it's revealed that his time in the sun just before he leaves Duel Academy to be card, Ayers Rock Sunrise, won a card designer design contest for Industrial Illusions and Maximillion Pegasus himself. He had was so impressed he not only made it into a card, he ''invites'' Chumley to duel become a ''card designer'' for him. However, one person stands in his way: Professor Crowler in order (due to get the school's permission. Chumley, a Chumley's usually mediocre duelist at best, got grades and having flunk twice already). Chumley needs to beat Crowler to be able to head out, or he loses the chance. When the duel comes, he gives it his all, fully utilizing the effect of his monsters and even manging to summon his most powerful creature (Master of Oz, a fusion of Des Kangroo and power Giant Koala) and use Ayers Rock Sunrise to not only pull it up ''with a card he himself designed'' (Chumley being an exceptional artist), off, but to ''nerf'' Ancient Gear Golem. At the end though, he was countered by Crowler's face-down card and defeated. But defeated, but it was no doubt his best showing. Fortunately, Crowler's still impressed with Chumley's performance that showed his improvement from previous years, gave he gives his approval and allows him to pursue his dream job anyway. It was such an awesome moment that Crowler would have thrown the duel right then if he could.
