INTERMISSION (Judai and Winged Kuriboh on the right with Yugi and his shrouded face on the left)
Yugi says that the time has come to see if Judai truly is his successor and is the reason he gave him Winged Kuriboh. Judai takes out his deck and sees Winged Kuriboh on top. He remembers when he bumped into Yugi who decided to give him a lucky card. Yugi talks for a bit then tells Judai to hold Winged Kuriboh up to the deck. The cards on the pedestal begin to glow; Winged Kuriboh gives off a blinding glare. When Judai comes to he finds himself in Domino City in front of the Kame Game Shop. A flier is blown toward Judai. He picks it up to see Judai and his friends. He walks towards the Game Shop then turns around. Yugi’s voice is coming from the Game Shop. Yugi (wearing the Millennium Puzzle) runs out in a hurry and bumps into Judai. Yugi asks Judai if he is alright to which Judai affirms. Judai recognizes Yugi who doesn’t seem to know him. Judai shows Yugi Winged Kuriboh and Yugi shows Judai Kuriboh. Yugi recalls sensing Kuriboh when he was working on the Millennium Puzzle.Yugi recognizes Judai as a duelist and agrees to duel Judai.
Yugi and Judai meet at the middle of Domino City and shuffle each others decks. Judai’s Yubel sense notices strange aura coming from Judai’s deck. The two take their decks and begin. Yubel notices that Yugi has the 3 Egyptian God Cards as they back away. Yugi emits a strong blue aura which shocks Judai. Yubel encourages Judai who smirks and emits a similarly strong red aura. Yugi won against Jaden Yuki in the final episode of YGOGX.
