It’s the beginning of the end! Episode 134 is here!
With all eight incarnations of Prince Yu-Gi-Oh and Prince Seto, Yuni, Seto, Yugi, Kaiba, Atem, Priest Seto, Timaeus, and Critias return to Earth at long last, ready to fight and defeat Ottiuk once and for all. But without the power of Another Hope, are they really ready?
Trap Monsters have long been one of my favorite concepts in the game of Yu-Gi-Oh. It’s just such a fun idea that traps can turn into monsters. For as long as I’ve known about the existence of Trap Monsters, I’ve thought there should be an archetype based on them. They almost did when they made Tiki Soul and Tiki Curse, both of which supported Trap Monsters, but they never went anywhere with it. It’s a shame that this game has been going on for as long as it has, and it has yet to do that. Despite how much I wanted to make a deck based off of Trap Monsters, I could never fit it in. It dawned on me recently that due to the Fang of Critias being focused on traps, it would be perfect to give Critias a trap-based deck that uses Trap Monsters. Actually, now that I have made Trap Monster deck, I’ve made every type of deck I wanted to make. Also, in case you hadn’t notice, in addition to Trap Monsters, the normal traps of Critias’ deck were based off of famous Trap Cards, such as the Mirrored Force o the Reliquary being based off of Mirror Force.
Now that Yuni and Tiameus have finished their duel, its time for Seto and Critias to step forward. With Critias catching Seto off guard, using a deck unlike any Seto has seen before, this duel is one not to miss.
This episode answers what was perhaps one of the biggest unanswered questions of the Waking the Dragons arc. It is stated that in the Battle of Atlantis neither side was victorious. Somehow, even with Timaeus, Critias, and Hermos sealed away, Ironheart and his monster army somehow managed to seal away the Great Leviathan, but in the process, Atlantis was destroyed. Of course, in this timeline, the knights were still there to help, but it is to be assumed that Ironheart could have done it alone in the original timeline. The funny thing about this episode is I thought it would be fairly short at first. I figured that if the entire episode was going to be just fighting the Great Leviathan, then I couldn’t make it last that long. However, things just kept on popping up that I felt I had to elaborate on, turning this into one of the longest episodes of the season.
As the Battle of Atlantis continues, Dartz gets the upper hand by summoning his trump card, the Great Leviathan, grand deity of the Orichalcos, the same monster that nearly destroyed the world when Yugi fought Dartz. Now it is up to Yuni, Seto, Timaeus, Critias, and Hermos to devise a plan to destroy this beast of infinite power.
