A young boy named Yugi Moto solves an Ancient Egyptian Puzzle and brings forth a dark and powerful alter ego. Whenever he and his friends are threatened by evil, this alter ego breaks out of the confines of the Millenium Puzzle and challenges wrongdoers to the Shadow Games: Life or Death situations that test the true nature of human beings. Those that lose or cheat suffer serious penalties that result in losing their sanity or even their lives. Along with his friends Joey, Tristan, Téa and Miho; Yugi and his dark counterpart faces off against foes such as Seto Kaiba: The ruthless champion of the duel monsters card game; and Ryo Bakura, who possesses the Millenium Ring containing a spirit more brutal than Yami Yugi. Will Yugi and his friends succeed or will they lose their souls?

Now, are you going to attack me or not? If you do, just remember, you'll be striking Mokuba!
Well, Seto, attack and you'll win the duel. But at what cost?

This is a no brainer. Kaiba has to attack him and win this duel.
What's it gonna be? Your victory or Mokuba?

This is the first season of Yuugiou. The storyline follows the first manga arc from before the duel monsters game really began to be played excessively. Yuugi was not aware of his other self at this time, and his other self forces those who have done harm to Yuugi or his friends to play a batsu geemu. (Penalty Game) This series is commonly mistaken by fans of the English dub for "Yuugiou: Duel Monsters" as being the series they know and love. The English dub skipped over this series however, and it was never dubbed. See more
