Season 4 Episode 19

Self Destruction

Aired Saturday 11:30 AM Jan 29, 2005 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • When the Pharaoh is walking through the valley you see spirits of Panik, The Paradox Brothers, The Fake Kaiba, Evil Marik, Arkana, and Rare Hunter.

    • This duel makes a lot more sense in the Japanese version. First, Yami seems to be dueling some reflection of himself rather than the actual Yugi. Second, Yugi explains after he wins that this was a test because if he was truly evil, no matter how skilled he was, he couldn't have won the duel.

  • Quotes

    • (The Pharaoh is now down to 200 life points)
      Yugi: One more attack, and you'll become a prisoner of the Orichalcos just like me!
      Pharaoh: Oh no, I can't lose! If I do, then I can't set you free, and two worlds will crumble!
      Yugi: So what, you're evil remember? Last time, you didn't care who suffered!

    • (After Pharaoh has won the duel)
      Yugi: You passed the test, pal.
      Pharaoh: What are you talking about? Did you plan this all along?
      Yugi: It was the only way. By defeating me, you were able to defeat the darkness that was inside your heart. It wasn't easy, but you did what was best for me, and for mankind. You acted like a true hero.
      Pharaoh: But, now what?
      Yugi: Don't give up this fight. Remember, I'm always with you.
      (Yugi disappears)
      Pharaoh: I'll save you!... No matter what it takes!

    • Pharaoh: Yugi wait! Are you holding the card I think you are?!
      Yugi: It sounds like you're starting to catch on! Aren't you, you highness?
