Episode Guide - The Legendary
Heroes, Part 1
With Mokuba by his side, Kaiba is giving the Big 5 of
Kaiba Corp a piece of
his mind for forming an alliance with Pegasus. They
attempt to make exuses,
and say it was all a plan to help Kaiba Corp and not
Pegasus. Kaiba won't
listen to them, and is about to fire them all when one of
that Kaiba's has prized invention, an interactive Duel
Monsters Video Game,
has been completed in his absence and is now ready to be
Kaiba is excited about this announcement, and goes to play
the game himself.
Mokuba is worried that it might be a trap. Kaiba reassures
everything in the game was programmed by himself, so
there's nothing the Big
Five could do. Kaiba arrives at the game pod and enters.
appears in the game world, and everything seems to be
working fine. Kaiba is
pleased with how it has all come along. He see's a dragon
summons the Blue Eyes White Dragon, which destroys the
dragon. But then, the
Armed Ninja appears. Kaiba is astonished - He never
programmed this into the
game. The ninja traps Kaiba in a net.
The Big 5 look on, enjoying this immensely. They have
game. Now they de-activate it with Kaiba inside, and
finish him for good.
Mokuba escapes and runs to Yugi's. After he explains the
situation, Yugi and
co. head off with him to save Kaiba. They get to the game
prototype pods at Kaiba's lab. Tristan and Tea stay behind
on lookout, as
there are only 3 pods (Mokuba brins Kaibas deck with him).
The Big 5 sense
the entrance into the game via the mainframe at Kaiba Corp
HQ, and send
their guards round to shut it down.
In the game world, the group are astonished by how real
everything looks. As
they explore, they come across a graveyard, and are
attacked by an Armored,
Clown and Dragon Zombie. Mokuba shows them how to summon
their monsters, and
they attack together. However, the monsters are revived
with even more
attack power, as a Call of the Graveyard is in play.
Joey's Flame Swordsman
is destroyed and he loses 150 Life Points. He then uses
the Sword and Shield
to completely wipe away their attack points, allowing them
to be destroyed.
The team each receive 5 points for their trouble, and find
a fairy which
leads them to a desert town.
They question the townspeople, and Mokuba finds out that a
prisoner was seen
being taken away to a mountain on the far side of the
desert. As they
attempt to cross though, a huge sandstorm blows them right
back to town. A
man tells them they will need a special card to cross the
desert (I'm very
sorry, but I really forgot it's name) They go to search
for the card, and
find a sign which advertises it as a tournament prize. At
the arena, they
learn that its a duel with the champion - to the death.
Zero Life Points
that is. Joey agrees to risk it, even though he has less
LP than the others.
He is given a ridiculous pig outfit to wear, and is then
taunted and jeered
by the crowd as he steps into the arena. The female
Butterfly, is carried out to cheers from the crowd. She
leaps from her stand
to begin the duel....
Legendary Heroes: Part 1
Kaiba has returned from Duellist’s Kingdom, freed from
Pegasus’s grip, and now he has a bone to pick with the Big
5 for joining up with Pegasus. They claim they were merely
trying to save Kaiba and Mokuba by starting a fake
partnership with Pegasus. Mokuba doesn’t believe them, but
Kaiba does and they tell Kaiba that his virtual reality
game pods are now ready and Kaiba goes to test one of the
5 prototypes, while the Big 5 prepare for their master
Kaiba goes into the pod and inserts his duelling deck into
the hard-drive deck-reader and his soul is sent to the
virtual world, where he finds the first monster, the
Two-headed King Rex and summons Blue Eyes to destroy it.
Suddenly a Dragon Capture Jar traps his dragon and an
Armed Ninja captures Kaiba. The pod starts sending sparks
and Kemo (now working for the Big 5) and several other
guards come for Mokuba. Taking Kaiba’s deck and escaping
through an air vent, he narrowly escapes.
The scene moves to the gang, who are at the game store,
where Joey is asking Grandpa to put his cards on Tristan’s
tab because his own is maxed out. Suddenly, Mokuba appears
at the door, pleading for help. Mokuba explains that 5
pods were made and to save Kaiba they must battle through
it. They decide to go and help.
When they get there, one pod is missing. Joey, Yugi and
Mokuba (who is using Kaiba’s deck0 go in to save Kaiba.
They arrive at a graveyard and meet the three zombies from
Bones’s deck and summon Rude Kaiser and Dark Magician from
Yugi and Kaiba’s deck. Not remembering their immortality
power, Joey attacks and loses 150 life points. Yugi
reminds Joey of his duel with Bones and Joey uses Shield
and Sword to beat them.
Joey’s life points don’t go up again and they realise that
they must survive the whole virtual world with only 2,000
life points each. They also get a score card for 5 token
points each. They try to escape before more zombies attack
and see a small fairy. It goes to a town and loses them.
They go to the town and realise they use the token points
to buy cards.
They look around to find out where Kaiba is an old lady
tells Mokuba she saw Kaiba being taken to an old temple
across a desert, while Joey is chased by virtual dogs.
They go across the desert and get blown back to the town,
where an old man tells them that they need a New Atori
card to cross safely. They see a sign for a contest
against the champion, Madam Butterfly with New Atori as
the prize card.
The master of the stadium, a large green goblin (possibly
a monster) gives Joey a battle costume (a cape and pig
mask) to duel in. When Joey goes out, he is criticised by
the audience, with Yugi and Mokuba cheering him on.
The champion, Madam Butterfly is brought out, wearing a
butterfly mask and cape. Joey notices that she is very
familiar and gets ready to duel. - Richard Kee
