Recap / Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series S 3 E 10 Its A Mad Mad Mad Mad Virtual World

"Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged! It's just like Code MENT. Only worse."
-Yami Yugi


  • Borrowed Catch Phrase: "Screw the rules, Seto! I have your money!"
    Kaiba: Stealing my body is one thing, but my catchphrases, too?!
  • Brick Joke: Noah uses the door that Melvin had such trouble with earlier... turns out that the password was just "open".
  • Call-Back: Melvin stumbles across footage of the episode with his favorite joke in it... "new episodes every week"!
    • "Aaaaah! Exodia! It's not possible! Nobody's ever been able to summon him... except for that one time!"
    Gozaburo: ...are you okay?
    Kaiba: Uh, yeah. I'm fine.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Defied. Noah is the only one who actually thinks that dying to protect people from a problem that you caused in the first place means anything.
  • Enemy Mine: Noah teams up with the heroes after being betrayed by his father.
  • Expy: Mokuba plays a game called "Pharaoh Fighter". Not only is the game itself a Street Fighter expy, it includes characters like "Bacula" and "Yoogy".
  • Grand Theft Me: Noah steals Mokuba's body so that he'll be able to enter the real world.
  • He's Got Legs: A cross that Yami must bear.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Kaiba tries to condemn Gozaburo for relying on a single monster to pull him through a duel. Gozaburo points out that Kaiba does the same thing all the time with his Blue Eyes.
  • Naked on Revival: When fusing with his father to ground them both in the Virtual World, Noah is... naked, for some reason.
  • Shout-Out: The robots that try to attack Melvin have the voice of the turrets.
  • Take That Me: Apparently spoofing the aforementioned Old Shame wasn't enough; the current episodes get plenty of flak as well.
    Yugi: It looks like we're just going to have to keep repeating the same jokes that everyone got sick of ages ago until he sets us free!
  • Unexplained Recovery: Tristan is suddenly and inexplicably cured from being a robot monkey.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Melvin gleefully notes that he can create horrific on-screen violence without censorship as long as his victims are robots instead of real people.
