"The difference between me and Ash Ketchum? I've actually won a tournament or two."
Yami Yugi

The Pharaoh loses a duel to Rafael.


  • Calling Your Attacks: For the first time in the abridged series, Rafael calls out all his moves as he is making them. Considering the nature of the series itself, Yami is understandably perplexed by this.
    Rafael: "It's your move."
    Yami: "Right. Um, time out. What are you doing?"
    Rafael: "Playing the card game."
    Yami: "Yes, but why?"
    Rafael: "Because we're in a Duel?"

  • Did Not See That Coming: Rafael psyches himself for the upcoming duel with Yugi by stating that he's prepared for anything. Then the Pharaoh decides to make an unnecessary jump over a cliff with a horse, likely killing the horse in the process.
    Yami: Nailed it.
    Rafael: Okay. I wasn't ready for that.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Rafael's plan to make Yami activate the Seal of Orichalcos gets him a bit more than he initially bargained for.
    Rafael: Now do you see how right I was about you being evil?
    Yami: Yes, Rafael. I see exactly what you mean. And now that I know how evil I can be, I'm going to destroy you and everything you hold dear and bathe in the afterglow of your demise.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Yugi shoves Yami out of the way of the Seal's range, sacrificing his soul in place of Yami's.

  • Inelegant Blubbering: Yami cries so much after Yugi's Heroic Sacrifice that he can't speak coherently.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Rafael somehow came to the conclusion that humanity was evil just after he was saved from being stranded in the ocean by some people passing by in a boat. The Pharaoh makes sure to point out how flawed his logic is.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: "If only I hadn't discarded so many of my children's trading cards! The most evil thing a person could do! I'm basically Hitler right now! Please forgive me!"
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The Pharaoh has no intention of using the Seal of Orichalcos when he gets it, but then Yugi mentions how he could potentially lose the duel. Cue the Pharaoh using it and proceeding to lose.
  • Oh, Crap!: Rafael actually plays Duel Monsters completely straight instead of letting the show abridge the game to the point where it's just a duel of quip. The Pharaoh gets confused by this and starts panicking.

  • Take That!: The opening gag mentions Ash Ketchem from the Pokémon anime, and how he's never won a tournament.
