Immense Damage

Immense Damage was the second episode of the first season of the Ni-Ki-Oh! series. The episode first aired on August 31, 2002 in the living room of 35-D Edgewater Park, playing from the unique VHS copy onto which it was recorded using a tape-to-tape method of linear editing.


This is a synopsis of the DVD version.

The episode opens with Niki and Joey in the playground, preparing to fight a duel. Joey summons Ryu-Kishin Powered [1600/1200] and destroys several of Niki's monsters. Niki is backed into a corner until he pulls the monster that saves him: the Summoned Skull [2500/1200]! Niki plays the Summoned Skull and destroys Ryu-Kishin with a Lightning Strike attack.

Niki: 2000 Joey: 1100

Niki continues to destroy Joey's defenses with the Summoned Skull. He powers up the Summoned Skull with the field magic card, Yami, giving all Fiend- and Spellcaster-type monsters a 30% field power bonus. [3250/1560] Joey then plays De-Spell to destroy Yami. Joey summons Blue-Eyes White Dragon, but Niki destroys it with a Trap Hole. Niki plays Sparks, to deal 200 damage to Joey's life points.

Niki: 2000 Joey: 900

Niki plays Stop Defense on Joey's facedown defense monster, forcing the Trap Master into attack mode [500/1100]. Niki attacks with the Summoned Skull and wins.

Now Niki has ten star chips, allowing him to compete in the Duel Monsters Playoffs. Two weeks later, all the duelists with enough star chips gather at the Playoffs. Maxamillion Pegasus, the host, welcomes them and the first duel begins.

Pegasus duels Seto Vacca, who uses a combination of powerful monsters and direct damage
magic cards. Vacca wittles down Pegasus's life points with cards like Tremendous Fire,
Ookazi, Hinotama, and Sparks. Vacca summons two Dark Magicians and a Blue-Eyes White
Dragon. For some reason, Pegasus powers his opponent's monster up with Equip Magic cards
such as Book of Secret Arts and Stim-Pack. His motives are revealed when he summons Time
Wizard, a card borrowed from Niki. The Time Wizard destroys all of Vacca's monsters and a
number of his life points equal to half of their total attack points. Pegasus wins.
