Suzy: Hey Kane, have you seen Kiyo anywhere?
Kane: He and Zatch just took off.
Suzy: Aww. That's a total bummer.
Kiyo: Zatch, whats the matter?
Zatch: Kiyo, someone has challenged us to a fight.
Kiyo: A mamodo?
Kane: Kiyo, you want to come with me? I'm going to catch a dinosaur!
Kiyo: Good luck.
Kane: No, I mean it!
Bari: You are Zatch?
Bari: Then I challenge you to combat. To determine who's spellbook is more powerful.
Bari: (To Naomi) Now then, I want a word with you Zatch.
Naomi: I'm not Zatch you clown. What's with the dorky costume, is the circus in town?
Bari: (Thinking)(Watching Naomi hurting Zatch) This is the mighty Zatch? This tiny female?
Bari:(To Naomi) So, you are the one they call Zatch?
Gustav: It's a big city. And we don't know what this mamodo looks like. Will we be able to find him?
Bari: Don't worry, sooner or later it will use it's powers and when it does I will be able to pin-point it's location.
Bari: What a pleasure it will be, to vanquish a worthy foe.
Gustav: Don't get over confident, be careful.
Gustav: I hope we are doing the right thing in challenging this mamodo Zatch. It could prove difficult.
Bari: You may be getting cold feet, Gustav. But I say the more difficult it is, the better.
Gustav: That's what you need. Someone who is as strong as you, a challenge. I've heard rumors of a mamodo in Japan. His name is Zatch. They say no one who has gone there to face this mamodo has ever returned.
Bari: Sounds intriguing. I say let's go to Japan!
Gustav: So, you want a worthy opponent, huh?
Bari: You think you can find one?
Gustav: What is it you want, Bari?
Bari: Want? How should I know what I want? But I do know I don't want this. Wasting my time and energy on unworthy opponents.
(building Explodes, people run off screaming)
Donpochu: OK I give! I surrender!
Bari: Surrender? There is no surrender in the battle to be king!
Donpochu: OK whatever you win!
Bari: In this battle there is only victory or oblivian! and its not hard to see what your fate is!
Gustav: GIGANO ZONIS!
(spell fires, Donpochu's Book catches on fire)
Bari: So, you are the one they call "Zatch?" I have finally found you.
Naomi: I'm Naomi, Noodlehead. If you're looking for Zatch, he's the one you just drop-kicked over there.
Bali: So, you are the one they call Zatch.
Zatch: What, hiya! (hugs him) Thanks for coming whoever you are! You saved my neck!
Bali: (kicks him off) Begone, you puny imp!

Title: Invitation to a Duel
This title could be a spoof of of Duel Masters or Yu-Gi-Oh! because the title says "Duel" in it and that's what the characters in the shows above do, duel.
