F-1 - Yu-Gi-Oh The Movie: Pyramid of Light
The movie begins with an alternating scene of Yugi
building the Millennium Puzzle and an archaological dig
at the tomb of Anubis. As Yugi completes the
Puzzle, the tomb collapses, and several duel monsters
appear in Yugi's room.
Yami, awakened for the first time, sends them back
inside the Puzzle.
Several years later, a summary of Yugi's dueling fame is
shown around the world on various television screens.
The narrator claims that Yugi is practically
unstoppable, and of course several duelists claim they
could beat him. At Kaiba Corp., Kaiba pits his deck
against that of a virtual Yugi, including all three
Egyptian God Cards: the Winged Dragon of Ra, Slifer the
Sky Dragon, and Obelisk the Tormentor. Kaiba unleashes
his Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon with twice the strength,
but the virtual Yugi sacrifices Slifer and Ra to make
Obelisk ifinitely powerful, destroying Ultimate Dragon.
Kaiba scolds his techs, and then begins to contemplate a
possible place to obtain a card to defeat Yugi.
Meanwhile, at Maxamillion Pegasus's country estate, a
mysterious figure touches a chest of special cards.
Pegasus dreams of the Egyptian God Cards trapped in a
mysterious pyramid, and awakends. He is troubled, but
dismisses it as eating before bed. The next day, Kaiba
arrives at the estate in his Blue Eyes plane, and
challenges Pegasus to a duel. The stakes: whatever cards
Pegasus made that can defeat the God Cards and Kaiba's
three Blue Eyes White Dragon cards.
After a few turns, Kaiba trounces Pegasus's Toon cards,
and then takes the anti-God Card cards from the chest.
Meanwhile, as Yugi and co. are leaving school, a large
group of duelists shows up to challenge Yugi. Joey holds
them off by dueling while Yugi and Tea sneak away. The
two hide in the museum, and encounter Yugi's grandpa.
They go to a strange exhibit from the tomb of Anubis,
where grandpa reads a strange prophecy from the
Also part of the exhibit is a mysterious artifact known
as the Pyramid of Light, which unbeknownst to Yugi is an
eight Millennium Item. Suddenly, a strange force knocks
Yugi out, and when he comes to, the mummy and the
Pyramid are gone. As he leaves the museum, Mokuba drives
up in a limo and tells Yugi that Kaiba wants to see him
with his duel disk. Joey and Tristen get to the store
where Yugi lives with his grandpa just as Yugi leaves in
the limo with his duel disk. The limo travels to Kaiba's
Duel Dome, and Yugi
and Kaiba hold a rematch. Kaiba allows Yugi to call
forth all three Egyptian
God Cards, then unleashes a new card: the Pyramid of
Light! Yugi recognizes the name, and the card destroys
his God Cards. Meanwhile, Yugi is pulled into the
Millennium Puzzle, with Joey and Tristen not far behind.
They encounter a chamber with Anubis's sarcophagus-and
an army of living mummies-inside. They run, and discover
the Pyramid of Light attacking the Millennium Puzzle. As
Kaiba unleashes his Peten the Dark Clown cards and his
Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon combo, Yami realizes that he
grows weaker as he loses lifepoints. Yami pullsd a
rabbit out of his hat by summoning the ultimate Dark
Magician card incarnation, the Sorcerer of Dark Magic.
However, Kaiba pulls out his second anti-God card,
summoning the all new Blue Eyes Shining Dragon. Wiping
the floor with Yami's monsters, Kaiba attempts to
destroy the Pyramid of Light in order to destroy Yami
with his own God Cards. However, Anubis rises from the
tomb early and knocks Kaiba out, summoning his Sphinx
monsters to leave Yugi defenseless. Pegasus shows up and
airlifts Tea, Grandpa, and Mokuba, who had been outside
the Pyramid, out of the Duel Dome. Tea, however, is
drawn into the Pyramid, and joins her
friends in fighting into Anubis's tomb. Yugi comes up
with a plan, and shatters Anubis's power source. This
allows Yami to take out the Pyramid of Light card with
Blue Eyes Shining Dragon, and reestablish his link with
while Joey, Tea, and Tristen are brought out. Anubis
summons his ultimate monster, Sphinx Theinen, but Yugi
revives his Egyptian Gods and combines their power to
take out the Sphinx. Anubis's body vanishes and the
Pyramid of Light shatters, but the red ball in the
center reforms Anubis into a real
monster, who knocks away Yugi and Kaiba's decks. Joey
attempts to attack, but Anubis brushes it off. Kaiba
then gives Yugi the Blue Eyes Shining Dragon, which
destroys Anubis for good. Afterwards, Kaiba vows that
they will duel again, and stalks off with Mokuba. Yugi
is thankful for his friends, and the movie ends. Note:
an odd thing about this movie is that it is not actually
part of the Yu-Gi-Oh TV series timeline. The events are
not mentioned in the final Battle City episode, which
features a review of the Yu-Gi-Oh Enter the Shadow Realm
season, nor in Yu-Gi-Oh Waking the Dragons.
