Anytime a bad guy(s) or security cornered a hero that has no way of defending themselves, the bad guy can take anything the hero has to offer.
You'd Expect: For the bad guy to just kick the crap out of the hero without challenging them to a children's card game
Instead: Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged sums up the entire idiocy:
Seeker: We are the elite group known as Rare Hunters. My name is Steve. And these are my associates. They are also called Steve. We're here to take your rarest card!
Joey: You mean you're gonna kick the crap out of me and steal it?
Seeker: No! First we're going to challenge you to a children's card game! Then we will kick the crap out of you and steal it!
Joey: Wouldn't it be much easier just to skip the first step?
Seeker:Yes! Yes it would!
