Blue-Eyes White Dragon is famous in Yu-Gi-Oh! for being one of the strongest cards a gladiator can play, but as it turns out, this seemingly omnipotent monster isn’t hard to defeat after all, as the anime confirms it can be done without need to play a card.
Blue-Eyes White Dragon has an attack power of 3000 and a defense of 2500. These stats are huge compared to most other Duel Monster cards, especially considering Yugi’s next card is the Dark Magician, which has The ATK is 2500 and the DEF is 2100. In other words, if someone holds the Blue-Eyed White Dragon in their deck and plays it at the right time, that person is more likely to win the match. This is how Seto Kaiba became a popular duelist in the Yu-Gi-Oh! continuum, as Kaiba collected all four existing Blue-Eyes White Dragon cards, thus rendering himself invincible. defeated (although he brutally tore the fourth card in front of Yugi’s grandfather after he won it from him, leaving it with only three Blue-Eyed White Dragons). However, it was Seto Kaiba who directly demonstrated that this is not necessarily the case, as there is a simple way to reduce the Blue-Eyed White Dragon’s attack power from outside the duel.
Seto Kaiba proved the Blue-Eyed White Dragon can be defeated through hacking
In Yu-Gi-Oh! season 1, episode 10 (written by Junki Takegami, Masashi Sogo and Shin Yoshida, directed by Kunihisa Sugishima), Seto Kaiba hacked into every Duel Monsters comprehensive computer on Pegasus’ Duelist Kingdom to make sure Yugi wins his match. Pegasus tried to kill Kaiba, and he was holding Kaiba’s younger brother. Only Yugi can save the Kaiba family from Pegasus’ wrath, and Seto is doing everything in his power to help. So, with full access to the holo computer, Seto Kaiba secretly participated in Yugi’s duel with Ghost Kaiba (the evil that was formerly in Kaiba was sent to the Shadow Realm and later Pegasus recovery). Ghost Kaiba features Kaiba’s original deck, which includes all three Blue-Eyed White Dragons. Yugi was able to defeat the first with sheer skill alone, but he needed Seto Kaiba’s help to defeat the second. Without wasting time, Seto Kaiba uploaded a virus onto the hologram of the Blue-Eyed White Dragon, thereby reducing its attack power.
Although Kaiba’s plan was ultimately foiled by Pegasus, it was not a complete failure. In fact, it could be argued that it was a resounding success. Kaiba was able to reduce the Blue-Eyed White Dragon’s attack power with his virus, and if Pegasus didn’t have advanced equipment, Kaiba was able to lower it to 0, proving this method is a reliable method even when it doesn’t work. this time period–and this isn’t something unique to Kaiba. Since most Duel Monsters duels take place on holo computers in the anime, every duel is perfectly vulnerable to the same attack from an experienced hacker, and Kaiba has proven that any card It doesn’t matter how strong a single is.
Previously, the only way to defeat the Blue-Eyes White Dragon without using additional magic cards or traps was to use five Exodia cards, as seen in the first episode of the series. Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, but this episode completely throws away that misconception, as Seto Kaiba demonstrates how to defeat the Blue-Eyes White Dragon without any cards.
