  • The end of the two part duel between Jaden & Syrus and the Paradox brothers.

    This episode was one of the better duels in this season. This is the end of the abandoned dorm arc where the whole point of the arc was mainly to get Jaden expelled. The duel showed that Syrus could activate his brother's card, Power Bond, and know when and "how" to use it. I also thought it was kind of cute with the whole Alexis scene at the end of the duel showing that she does like Jaden. And this first and only appearance of one of Syrus' card, Roid Fighter. Also the first appearance of Tempest, a really cool hero monster.moreless
  • It was okay

    I thought the second part was better than the first part. I hate it when battles are in two parts they piss me off. Anyways they advertise the classic gate guardian and the new dark guardian. I think that Syrus is a crappy duelist though. I mean he uses bikes as cards bikes. Anyways the ending was predictiable what the hell would they do if they got expelled. Also being expelled just because you went in a dorm what is this camp? Anyways Crowler looks like a fool again. Jaden wins and they all lived until the next episode. Overall it was okaymoreless
  • the paradox brothers are even siller this time then last and 4kids i think made alexis' comment look like they were only friends

    the paradox brotherrs manage to lose gate guardian and bastion i think was glad to see gate guardian go and alexis seems to have a HUGE crush on jaden and 4kids editing of the end of the epidose where alexis said : I'm just happy Jaden gets to stay here and(flustered) Oh, of course! I'm glad Syrus gets to stay, too. I just said "Jaden" because... because... well, moving on. i think in japan they have alexis say some to the effect of how alexis really like jaden and bastion says and (flustered) Oh, of course! I'm glad Syrus gets to stay, too. I just said "Jaden" because... because... well, moving on.moreless

  • This is one of my favorite episodes. It's when Syrus and Jaden battle in a tag battle. It's a good battle.

    So Jaden and Syrus pulled through after all. They have a tough time working together at the beginning but they did it, they win. I don't know why Syrus is so nervous. He just need to be confident and believe in himself. My favorite part was at the end when the beat the 2 brothers. It was awesome. Syrus drew out Power Bond. It's a fusion card. He fuse UFO-Roid and Elemental Heroes:Tempest which creates UFO-Roid Tempest. They attack them with Cosmic Bugsplash or something to beat Dark Guardian. They won the battle. I don't get why they have to write ten pages about the experienced with battling the Paradock Brothers.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Syrus attacked "Defense Wall" with "Drillroid", they shouldn't have lost any life points, since "Drillroid" automatically destroys the Defense-position monster without damage calculation.

    • Goof: When Chumley came on the stage to congratulate them Jaden's duel disk disappears then reappears but is on the other hand.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Chumley: (before Gate Guardian is destroyed) Please let them win, oh PLEASE let them win! I'll give up grilled cheese for a week! I'll just fry 'em, I swear!
      Chumley: (After it is destroyed) ALL RIGHT! Fried cheese, here I come!

    • Crowler: NO! How could they possibly win this?
      Professor Banner: Because of your superior teaching, of course. Oh, wait, they're in my dorm.

    • Alexis: I'm just happy Jaden gets to stay here.
      Bastion: You mean "Jaden and Syrus?"
      Alexis: (flustered) Oh, of course! I'm glad Syrus gets to stay, too. I just said "Jaden" because... because... well, moving on.

    • Jaden: Make your move. It's all up to you!
      Syrus: I know. That's what I'm afraid of.

    • Jaden: I'm starting the academy put us in Slifer Orange. That way I wouldn't have to listen to so many corny rhymes about us. (Kuriboh's spirit says something) I don't think they got it either.

  • NOTES (5)

    • Like Yugi and Joey before them, Jaden and Syrus defeat the Paradox brothers with a powered-up Fusion monster.

    • YTV Airdate: November 18, 2005.

    • Look Closely: When the screen splits to show Chancellor Shepard talking to Dr. Crowler, it hits Crowler in the back of the head... and he feels it.

    • This is the Second time we see a three way fusion, the first was Zane and his Cyber End Dragon, but this time it is summoned by Jaden and it is called Elemental Hero Tempest, the combination of Avian, Sparkman, and Bubbleman

    • Alexis shows that she has a thing for Jaden by saying that he can stay at the academy, without mentioning Syrus, and after Bastion points it out, Alexis stammers and fumbles to say an explanation, and barely gets out of it by managing to put it behind.
