Recap: Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series S 2 E 22 Ishizu Explains It All
"Yo, Kaiser! I'm happy for you, and I'mma let you finish, but Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged is one of the greatest shows of all time!"
-Yami Yugi


  • Babel Fish: Mokuba uses this to translate the Egyptian text on one of the god cards. The translation should be about 30% accurate.
  • Badass Boast: Kaiba has a pretty great one during his duel with Ishizu.
    "Now do you understand why so many people love me, even though I'm the biggest dick in this entire show? It's because I'm Seto Freaking Kaiba. Accept no substitutes."
  • Badass Longcoat: Kaiba's new "talking collar" feature on his coat prompts a discussion on this.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Kaiba has a brief hallucination where a "cybernetic ghost of Christmas past from the future" tells him about a robot apocalypse and his past self's sex with his dragon girlfriend. Kaiba is just as confused as the viewer is.
  • Big "NO!": Marik lets one out when Melvin cages him.
  • Bond One-Liner: "It looks like the rules... just got screwed."
  • Dude, She's Like in a Coma: Duke thinks that the best part about unconscious chicks is that they can't say no.
    "...what? Oh, yeah, like I'm the only one thinking it!"
  • Evil Tastes Good: Melvin has been "om-nom-nomming" on Marik's soul for ten years now, and happens to like the taste.
  • Fourth Wall Observer: Ishizu is one, and is the first character to really explain to the others that they live in an abridged series, complete with Title Drop.
  • Mysterious Waif: Yami describes Ishizu as this... which, in his eyes, is just another way of saying that her character is boring.
  • Precision F-Strike: Kaiba does this after Ishizu makes a particularly damning move against him.
  • Screw Destiny: Kaiba defeats Ishizu by purposely derailing his actions from the future her Millenium item predicted.
  • Shout-Out: "Sorry, Marik, but your sister is in another castle!"
    • "Sorry I'm late, I was stuck on a really difficult Professor Layton puzzle. You know the one."
  • Take That Me: The creator of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series is described as "a chubby British guy in his mid-twenties".
