          ~~~~ABOUT THE GUIDE [ATG] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


This is a Walkthrough I made to help you beat Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's SA story mode.
Here I will tell you step by step where to go and how to solve puzzles that you
encounter in the story mode, however I wont help you if you got problems 
beating someone in a duel. If you wonder Why I wont do such thing is because in
this game there a LOTS of cards, therefore making a lot of combinations
possible so I cant list all of them and neither can list all of them, since
the cards you get are random besides the starting ones. Hope you find useful
this guide. 

A thing to notice about this guide is that I tried to keep SPOILERS as low as
possible if not non-existant, so dont worry about youself getting spoiled.


--------------------------------------------------------------

             ~~~~ INTRODUCTION [INTR] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


If you know nothing about Yu-Gi-Oh! or havent ever played a game then you are
probably wondering how to play, if you simply turn on the game and go into the
World Championship mode, there you can find a Tutorial. It is very helpful
so it should be enough to get you started. If you need help constructing a deck
I would suggest building the basic one, it consists of strong monsters that are
level 4 or less (so you can summon without tributing) like 2 or 3 higher level
monsters and trap/spell cards that can destroy your opponent's monster with 
the ones you consider helpful.


--------------------------------------------------------------

             ~~~~ ADVICES/TIPS [ADV]~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


- Keep your deck as close to 40 as possible, this raises the chances you get 
for drawing the card(s) you need.

- If you lose a duel you'll lose some extra points you would get after each 
battle, you get 1 point for each consecutive battle you win (max 10) so 
getting 10 more DP is better than only 1, for those who are worried about this
just save a lot and if you lose simply turn off the power and restart, this DP
DO help if you never lose, however if you lose besides that nothing happens
(except for some duels in which you would lose the game wich are the less).

- Sometimes when you battle someone (outside the obligatory battles) they'll 
give you a card for beating them, so if you want free cards and more DP duel!

- Constantly save after a battle.

- When in middle of a duel you'll notice that sometimes you want to activate a
trap card but the computer wont ask you if you want to do it, well when you are
in the middle of an animation (either yours or your opponent's turn) keep
pressed the button A during the animation and a window will pop-up saying that
there are no cards you can use and asking if you want to check the field.


--------------------------------------------------------------

             ~~~~ STARTING [STRT] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


After the short clip you'll be found uncouncoius. You'll talk with a little
girl called Rally and here you start playing. First of all move around and
check the controls, press B when walking to run. Press X or tap the duel disk
at the bottom right corner of the screen, this will send you to the menu where
you can do various things. 

First of all we are gonna do some changes to your deck since there are some
good cards in you side deck that should be in it. Enter the duelist menu and
tap deck construction. Add the following cards from you side deck to your Main
deck, to do this select a card with the arrows or tap it, then press A and a
little window should appear asking where do you want to move the card, select
to deck.

*Note this is just a reccomendation, you can leave it as it is or change other
cards instead of the ones that are going to be listed. Minimun 40 cards must be
on your deck in order to be able to play.

Add the following cards from the Side Deck to the Main Deck:

Ancient Gear Knight
Fossil Tusker
Enemy controller
Malevolent Nuzzler
Defense Draw

Add the following cards from deck to side deck or trunk:

Overworked
Sonic chick
The Creator
X-Saber Galahad
Unstable Evolution



If you want to buy some card packs (In order to upgrade your deck) you'll need
to either go to a card shop in the game or just instead of choosing 5D Starcup
mode, choose World Championship mode and from there select the option Get cards
, buy cards. However be sure to save some DP since you'll need 1000 DP later
in the game, if you wasted all of them or want to buy more packs, you get DP
for each duel you win (and for each time you lose but when this happens you
only get 1 DP for each turn that passed, so it isnt like they count lol).

Exit the menu and save the game, in order to save the game just go down the map
until you see a floating thingy diamond shaped mark (it's on the middle left
side of the map). After saving just keep going down and face your first duel.


   Rally        ----> This is the character's name
   Mecha Shot   ----> This is the character's deck name
   515          ----> This is the grade of difficulty of the character


After this easy battle (It's the first one so it's supposed to be that way),
go down and exit that map, keep going down and you'll see another person there
talk with him and enjoy your second battle.

   Nervin
   Total equip
   470


After the battle just go down the stairs into the subway, here you'll have to
face 2 more opponents I would recommend in order to make this duels faster
and easier that you should go to buy some card packs (Beggining 1 for good
spell and trap cards and Beggining 2 for good monsters, this again is my 
opinion) and get a better deck first, thought it isnt really necessary since
they are pretty easy too.

   Tank
   Total Effect
   490

   Blizz
   Satellite Wall
   500


After those battles, before entering the tent go down the map and to the left
to find 450 DP, after getting them enter the tent, there is another save point.
Even though Rally said not to touch the PC, ignore her and go and touch it.

When the shot cut-scene is done get outside the subway and meet with Blitz,
then follow him (go to the left of the map to the next map). In this map go up
and in the right side of the map you'll find a Dust Tornado Card. Go down and
talk with Blitz and the bad guy there, you'll need 1000 DP in order to buy the
Duel Runner. When you've bought the Runner go back to the subway and you'll
see your Runner there, fast deliverly am i right? Well go and check your
Runner.... After receiving such surprise go back to the map where you bought
your Runner (All the way left), when you've watched what happened go back to
the subway and tell the others what you saw.


--------------------------------------------------------------

            ~~~~ RESCUING BLITZ [RSB] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


They are no help at all so you must go back to where you bought the Runner, go
to upper side of that map and duel the guy guarding the building entrace.

   Kuroe
   Masteful Magician
   580


Enter the building and first of all save, then before battling that guy there
go up and get those 450 DP laying there, procceed to face that guy blocking
your way.

   Ida
   Ida Dragons
   590


Now proceed walking to where the guy was and before facing the 3rd guy go to
the bottom left side of the map and get a Rush Recklessly card. Go and face the
guy blocking your way to the next map.

   Kanmeno
   Lucky Turtle Shell
   620


When you've beaten him go up and enter the next map, you'll encounter the first
puzzle in the game where you gotta move some blocks that are blocking your way:

Here is a mini map for that:

lE l_____
l  N     l  E= exit
lN NN B Nl  N= Non movable stuff
l   NCN  l  ABCDEF= Movable blocks
l  N  N  l  l,_= walls
lNF D NNAl
lN  E N  l
l     N  l
l____NN  l
       l l


That's how it looks when you enter and it isnt really complicated but since
this is a Walkthrough I gotta explain how to beat it so if you cant solve it,
here's how to do it. Use the poorly-done ASCII that is just up this paragraph
and follow the following instructions:

- Push the first block (A) up 2 times
- Push C down 4 times
- Push E to the left once
- Push F up twice and then push it right once

*Note if you somehow do something wrong and cant pass through this map just
press Y so the puzzle restarts and now follow the steps  =p


Before/After waking up Blitzz go to the right side of the map and pick up the
Quillbot Hedgehog card there. Now you gotta go back from where you came, time
to redo the first puzzle, this time you'll start at the exit and gotta get to
the start, following the diagram I made before and do this to get to the start:

- Push F down once
- Push C up twice
- Push B right once, down twice
- Push A down twice

Now get out of the building and return to the subway, after the cut-scene go
into the tent. After another cut-scene go back inside the subway. 


--------------------------------------------------------------

         ~~~~ DUEL RUNNING AND INTO THE FABRIC [DRIF] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


Now get out of the subway and this time go to the right side of the map, in
this map you'll find the card shop, anyway go all the way down until the next
map and go to Satellite Slum, there you can find a Duel Runner shop where you
can buy parts for your Duel runner which will help you in many ways, if you do
dont forget to actually put the parts into the Runner, to do this press X and
go to the Customize Duel Runner option. I would suggest buying a Front with
good handling to make it easier to run.

Well from here go down to the next map,save if needed and before going all the
way left, go down and to the left to find a hidden DP Charge code wich gives
you some nice 1500 DP. Go left of the map to enter the Duel running track where
you gotta beat the track in the given time (3 minutes) it's easy once you get
accustomed to it. Press A to acelerate, B to break, L/R for boosts (which you
dont have any at this time of the game).

After you've completed the track go all the way back to the subway. This time
you gotta run for you life, it's the same track where you practiced so you
should be fine. After succesfully escaping go back to the subway to check the
others. Go back where the Runner shop is located and in that map go to the left
side, follow the path and enter fabric, here you'll meet your second puzzle!

Well it isnt really a puzzle but who cares, it got movable blocks. From here
instead of moving the first blocks you see go left and you'll find a swtich 
on the floor, DO NOT STAND ON IT before doing that you should move the blocks
there, move them so that you can pass through there, there's no need to
explain how to do that as its very simple (Move the right block up twice and
then right once, move the block on the top of the screen up twice). Now go back
to the switch and stand on it, you got 7 seconds to go all the way up the
stairs and open the gate, easy right? Wait! You are telling me you got problems
getting up there before the time runs out? Well remember that pressing B while
walking will make you run, so if you do that you'll have no problems here.

Go a little left and down so you can see another of those containers that gives
you stuff (Big Bang Shot card), follow the path and duel the guy blocking your
way.

   Lug
   From the sea
   689


Continue to the next map and you'll find another block puzzle:



 ______lSl
l-  D -  l
l A - - -l  S = exit
l  B E I l  A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,Z = Movable Block
l - - - -l  - = Non movable object
l -C    -l
l Z -- H-l
l Z   FG l
l Z_-___-l
l l


- Push B right once
- Push C down once
- Push E up once
- Push I right once


Once done go into the next map and save, face your next oponent:

   Larry 
   Sss ss ss!
   708


Whats up with him and his Sss's? Anyway save if needed and DONT talk with Tank,
if you do when you try to go and save you'll trigger another battle. Continue
your way through the fabric, dont go back yet, the next map contains a card
and stuff. I'll make a map for it:


Here you'll find one card, DP and a new cloth (jacket).

If you do this with the specified blocks and dont move other blocks you can get
to any part of the map:

- Push A DOWN ONCE
- Push C down twice
- Push B down once
- Push E right once
- Push F left once
- Push G down once
- Push H up twice 


Now get out of there when you got all the 3 items, go back to the save point
and save and then talk with tank, after talking with tank go back to the
entrance and another battle will be triggered, you gotta beat the guy to get
out of the map however if you lose you'll be sent back to your last save point!
This is the reason I suggested saving before talking with tank.

   Lenny
   Lots of bugs

When the cut-scene is over go back to the subway and enter the tent, remember
to save and then head to the computer (the one that you shouldnt touch lol) and
prepare yourself for another Duel Running track, this one is just to pratice so
you can try as many times as you want without worrying.

When you've completed the track you gotta wait sometime for the next step so
you should go and have a duel with Rally, she's in the subway:

   Rally
   Mecha Shot
   515


Then proceed to have another duel with Blitz, he's besides Rally:

   Blitz
   Satellite Wall
   500


When Tank asks you if you are ready say no, go and save first and then come
back with Tank and say you are ready. If you were planning to do something in
this part of the city then I would suggest not to talk with Tank and go and do
whatever you wanted to, then go and see him when you are ready since after this
part you wont be able to get back to this part of the city until you beat the
game.

Time for another Duel Runner track, this time again you gotta run for your life
(in the same track you previously practiced) so good luck.


--------------------------------------------------------------

                    ~~~~ IN JAIL [IJ] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------

So you've been a bad boy/girl? First of all save and go out of that room.
You'll be at a corridor where there are many other prision cells, get out of
there (go down). Save again if needed and then duel the Bad guy there (Bolt
Tanner).

   Bolt Tanner
   Stampeding Bulls!
   940


The catch with this one is that you wont use your deck to fight him, instead a
borrowed one. Still it isnt really difficult to beat him.
Wnen you are done, save as always and then head to vist the other newcomer he's
in the corridor in the right side room. Yea, it seems that everyone wants to 
duel you.. Anyway after the short cut-scene go and talk with every other
prisioner, go to the corridor, there on the bottom left corner you'll find one
prisioner (There are 6 total that will give you something), he'll give you what
you are looking for, then go to each room and talk with each prisioner to get
more of those stuff they give you. No need to go to the center room neither the
right side room (Just go there to get some more DP) since nobody in those rooms
will give you anything.

After you are done go back to the "recreation room" (all the way down) and talk
with the big guy there. Remember to save.

   Chief
   Go Takasu-C!
   950


He is really annoying since he is mostly defensive so it will be a long (not
hard) battle...


--------------------------------------------------------------

                   ~~~~ DUEL PUZZLES [DPS] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


After the flashback, return to the corridor. When done and once you are out go
all the way down to exit the map where you are in and enter in the first
entrance you see, once inside save and talk with the bar tender, prepare for
some Duel puzzles!

After you've completed 3 Duel puzzles , save and go outside.


---------------------------------------------------------------------

          ~~~~ GETTING BACK WHAT THEY TOOK FROM YOU [GBDD] ~~~~ 

---------------------------------------------------------------------


When Blister is done talking with you, from where you are search the right side
of the room for a Machiners Sniper monster card, then get outside of that
building. Once out to the left of the building you just exited there's another
Duel Runner Shop if interested go and buy some parts for yours,then go all the
way right of the map into the next map, in this map there is another Card shop
however it's temporarly closed.

Keep going right, you'll find a child who's wandering there, talk with him and
have a duel with him, this duel is a Structure Deck duel, you'll borrow a
specialized deck from him and duel against him with it, it's a very fun duel,
I chose the Spellcaster's Command Deck and beat him with it. Remember to get
the DP that are in that area on the bottom left corner of the area the child is
in, not of the map.

   Nico
   Curse of darkness
   900


You can either continue playing with him or continue with the game, you can
always come back and have a structure duel here with him. Say that you dont
want another duel (unless you do) and go back with Blister and talk with him.
After hearing the explanation get outside the building and this time go to the
upper part of the map into the next one. Save (its on the top in the left side
of the map) then go to the right side of the map and enter the building using
your card.

First go all the way left into the next room, here you gotta get past some 
guards, to do this wait until the guard is going to turn up , here's an "image"
of where he should be turning to when you get past him.

 ______
l .... l    l,_ = walls
l .  . l      . = The trayectory where the guard walks
l ...G l      G = Guard
l______l


Remember when he is turning up as shown on the map run to the other side of the
room, run by the lower part of the screen. Now enter the next room and grab the
Tuningware monster card there, get back to the main room. Once back there go up
to the next room and then to the left , here you gotta get past another set of
guards.

Wait until the second guard beggins walking to the left side of the room and
for when the 1st guard is on the same position as the one before:
 ______
l .... l    l,_ = walls
l .  . l      . = The trayectory where the guard walks
l ...G l      G = Guard
l______l


When waiting for the second guard to beggin walking to the left hide behind the
machine there, then when he starts walking left, hide behind the flower pots,
when he dissapears of your view and the 1st guard is on position quickly run on
the lower part of the screen and after passing the flower pots stop running and
begin walking through the second guard.

Enter the next room and grab the Control Room ID card there, head back to the
main room (the one where you started when you entered the building) Actually if
you just let yourself get caught you'll start there.

From the main room now go right to the next room:

This is easier, wait until both guards are giving you their back and walk
behind them, follow the second guard and when passing the machine go up and
remember never to pass the guard, there press A where the door control is and
wait until the seconde guard goes back, press A again to close the chat window
and enter the room.

Here go up to the first PC you see and check it. You'll be given 2:30 minutes
to reach another room. To go back, go to the lower part of the screen and run
left, when you've reached the machine (not passed it) stop running and walk, 
keep youself as close as possible to the flower pots and the wall, end up
facing down then wait until the guard passes you and then go left to exit that
room and get to the main room.


Here is a mini map of where you should stand

G    l_________    G = Guards,they may not be exactly there just for reference
        M|  D      D = Door where you come from
  G      |         M = Machine there
__----Y__|______   Y = Where you should stand
                   - = Flower pots
                   | = Where you should stop running


*Since some people had problems with my method, I'll add this other method
(Which was probably the one meant to be done) that some nice (Victor Rosa)
guy e-mailed me with:

"What you have to do is after activating the switch leave the control room
notice the plant on your right (about two steps away). Go behind the plant and
wait for the guard to come back and then watch him get a few good feet away.
After follow him before he leaves your sight. This part is tricky. You have to
maneuver your way past the guards sight (the one at the top) but at the same
time you have to slide your way along the set of plants until you can hide in
the intersection where the plant and wall make a corner. After that the guard
will pass and you can leave.

P= Plant

G= Guard
l---l= Movements of Guards
Y1= The first place you have to stay after hitting the switch for the timer
Y2= The place you have to end up after you have followed the guard that walks
towards the exit while you follow him and slide beside the plant and the wall.

*End of the other method to get past this room*

After getting back to the main room go up to the next room and then to the
right one, here are more guards:

To past the first set of guard wait until the running guard goes off screen,
then wait until the guard on the upper side of the screen faces you with his
back, when he is, run again by the lower part of the screen and when reaching
the second set of flower pots position yourself behind them, again as close as
possible to them and the wall, here's another map:


   G l_________l G   G = Guards,they may not be exactly there, I putted them
        M               there just for reference
                G    M = Machine there
  ----________Y---   Y = Where you should stand
                     - = Flower pots


To get past the 3rd guard is easy, just wait until he is giving you his back
and walk always some steps behing him, continue right and enter the room, this
should be done in the given time (2:30min) and if you get spotted by a guard
you gotta start over from going to the other room and activating the PC.

When you've completed this task and entered the room check that room for
another ID, your deck, some DP and a Duel Disk (Everything is in the drawers)
Now get out of there and from the main room go up to the next map and open the
middle door there. 

After entering this room go to the right until you see a guard and wait about
15 seconds and then walk left this time by the upper side of the map and hide
behing the flower pot there:



G   G -l_________    G= Guards,they may not be exactly there just for reference
       -Y      D     D = Door where you come from
                     - = Flower pots
  ----_________      Y= Where you should stand
                   


Wait till the guard of the right in the map before given (the one up this line)
passes you and then wait for the other guard to turn up.

 ______
l  .   l    l,_  = walls
l  .   l     . = The trayectory where the guard walks
l  G  -l__   G = Guard
         -Y   - = Flower Pots
_-------___   Y = where you are standing



When he is facing up is the time you should get across the map to the left.
Once done enter the next room and DONT go up, instead if you check the mini
map on the DS there's like a little hole to the left of the map (not the one
with the exit another smaller one) well go there and pick up a nice Gold
Sarcophagus card (very useful IMO) Go down and left and save your game, after
saving go, dont do up yet, go into the next map, exit from there so you can
always use that elevator and dont have to go through the trouble of passing the
guards again, and if you need to, go and buy some Duel Runner parts then come
back using the elevator you have just activated.


Returning to the map where you last saved, go up in the map to find what you
were looking for and prepare for another Duel Runner track, this is why you
should save first. The trick on that track is if you see you are gonna get
hitted by an obstacle break a little until you can pass by and then continue.

If you cant complete the track beacause its too hard I would recommend exiting
the building by the method before described and going to buy some Duel Runner
parts to the shop left to the building where Blister is then going back and
when getting it back instead of just going down and triggering the next event
press X before and customize your Runner. Mini boosts are good if you crash
into the wall or an obstacle as they'll help you regain your speed faster also
a good accelerator and handling helps.


----------------------------------------------------------------

            ~~~~ MEETING THE TWINS AND TAG DUEL [MTTD] ~~~~

----------------------------------------------------------------


When you've succesfully escaped prepare for a duel...

   Leo
   Transform, Ta da!
   1100


Save and go down the stairs to face another opponent:

   Akiza
   Black Rose
   1200


Save again and return to where Blister is (all the way left) thought dont enter
the building, just keep going left and you'll see him, prepare for your first
Tag Duel, after hearing the explanation of course.

   Leo                   Luna
   Transform, Ta da!     Fairy Princess
   1100                  1100


Now you gotta find a partner, to do this just find a charcter in the game from
which you like his deck and battle him (and win) until he/she asks you to be
your partner (Im not sure if you can partner with the characters in the city).
After that from the Duel Runner shop (or where the Tag Duel was) go left and
follow the path until you reach the city, when you do, go left again all the
way and follow the path, on the last map go up and a little left to save, then
enter the tournament and of course win it!

By the way the card shop is now opened so if you need to upgrade your deck go
and buy some card packs.

  1st duel

   Figaro           Corse
   Classic Deck     Modern Deck
   918              923


After you've beaten them save and talk again with the manager for the 2nd duel,
same for the 3rd one.

   2nd duel

   Blister               Bolt
   Sprint! Machiners!    Stampeding Bulls!
   930                   940

Proceed to the 3rd duel.

   Leo                  Luna
   Transform, Ta da!    Fairy Princess
   1100                 1100


Nice job winning, now after the cut-scene save, go back to the map where the
bar is if you do not remember how to get there first get out of the city and
go all the way right until you reach that map, outside the bar to its right
you'll find Bolt, talk with him after doing that go back with Blister, all the
way to the left again and enter the building he is in. 


--------------------------------------------------------------

          ~~~~ TURBO DUELING AND THE TOURNAMENT [TDT]~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


When you are done get out of the building and go all the way back to the city,
when you reach the city go to the right there talk with a guy named Giado that
is guarding some kind of entrance and you are on for another Duel Runner track.
This should be easy now.


When you've completed the track I would suggest going into your duel disk and
editing the Turbo duel deck you got (Press X go to duelist menu then select
Deck construction (Turbo)), since you are almost going to start Turbo dueling..
The only diference here is you gotta buy special magic card to be able to use
them in the duel, apart from that everything is the same, anyway after editing
your turbo duel deck exit the map and there a guy will explain you how to turbo
duel and of course challenge you to one.

   Bass
   Non-stop Road
   1082


Go and save after the duel and then go to the card shop to buy some spell cards
(Aceleration pack) for your turbo duel deck since you'll need them. Then edit
your deck again and go back to where the Team Tag Tournament was held, there
prepare yourself for another tournament, save again if needed and good luck
winning.


   1st Duel (Turbo duel)

   Trudge
   For Duel's End!
   1250


Save and to the next battle!

   2nd duel (Turbo duel)

   Hunter 
   Wheel on Fire!
   1290


Save and procceed with the next battle

   3rd duel (Turbo Duel)

   Greiger
   (Forgot to see info on him lol, sorry for that. It isnt very important tho)


Now you can go and buy more cards or just continue with the tournament , to do
that return to the tournament area, dont forget to save, this time you can
enter the building so just go up and enter the tournament (Talk with the
manager).

   1st Duel (Normal Duel)

   Randsborg
   Fit for a Knight!
   1420


Save and go procceed with the next duel.

   2nd duel (Normal Duel)

   Akiza
   Cold Burning Fire
   1450


Go and save and prepare for the final match!

   3rd duel (Turbo Duel)
   Yusei
   Warrior's Aligned
   1500


After the cut-scene save your game! Never before it was so important to save
since what is next is the most difficult part of the game (At least for me)
Go to the WC mode after saving and buy some card packs, you'll need to have a
strong deck for the next part, after you are done simply go down on the map
you are in and after a long speech (Which if you dont got a strong deck you'll
watch it a lot of times...) you'll face 4 opponents, whats the deal with them?


--------------------------------------------------------------

             ~~~~ THE 4 LAST ONES AND THE KING [TLOK] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


Well let me explain, first of all you gotta beat all 4 in one run, no saving
in middle, second you cannot use your side deck, third they got structure decks
which are very powerfull and at last and more important of all, YOUR LIFE
POINTS ARE THE SAME FOR ALL 4 DUELS so that means YOU ONLY GOT 8000 LP FOR THE
4 BATTLES, this means that your LP are carried over from battle to battle so if
you finish the 1st battle with 3000 LP you'll start the 2nd one with 3000LP,
keep this in mind!!

I said I wouldnt give any info on how to beat duelists since it just depends
on your deck and no oponent is a big deal.. except these 4 so I'll throw in a
couple of tips.

Dont let them use synchro AND DONT GET DAMAGED EVEN 100 LP COUNT, if you let
them summon 1 synchro monster you are pretty much screwed so dont let this
happen.


- Alfa -

He keeps special summoning monsters from his graveyard, I mean he is crazy
about that! If you destroy his tuner monster he'll return it to the field the
next turn and this is what makes it very hard to beat him, since if he gets a
tuner monster with all his special summoning he'll summon a Synchro monstert
herefore you are 90% doomed unless you got a really good deck. He uses a
zombie structure deck

- Beta -

He can be pretty strong and also got some cards that will prevent lvl 4
monsters to attack, so either be prepared to destroy em or defend from his
lower lvls monsters, he got a field card that gives lower lvl monsters a bonus
of 1300 ATT so be careful, he doesnt synchro summon as often as Alfa but if
he does you'll have some trouble too so dont let that happen and find a way
to destroy his monsters when he stops you from attacking with lvl 4 or higher
monsters. He uses an aqua structure deck.

- Gamma -

Much more easier that the other 2 IMO, he got some strong monsters and as long
as you dont let him tribute summon it should be no harm for you. He got no 
synchro summons thankfully and uses a lightsworm sturcture deck.


- Delta -

Same as above it should be easy if you get here with High LP, he uses dark
summon combos but they arent really strong or at least the ones I saw, he got
few monsters you should worry about but as stated before if you reached this
battle with high LP you should be fine. He uses a Dark structure deck.

After the battle, let me congratuale you for beating them, remember to save
when you wake up and go to face the king.

   Jack - Turbo duel
   King's pride
   1580


MUUCH more easier than the lasts fights you had, he got a few monsters that
cnm be special summoned if he controls no mosters but it's nothing you should
worry about, unless you have problems dealing with 2X00 ATT monsters.

After that, congratulate yourself you've just beaten the story mode, and as
Rex Goodwin said, you may do as you please.


--------------------------------------------------------------

               ~~~~ TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE 4 [TT4] ~~~~

--------------------------------------------------------------


Since it seems that these 4 can be very hard for many I made a deck with cards
that you can get without using the Card codes and actually with not no much
effort. Here is the deck that I used to beat these 4, believe or not.

~ Monsters ~

Gemini elf x3
Dark Ruler Ha des
Exiled Force
Gigantic Cephalotus
Goblin Attack Force
Granmarg the Rock Monarch
Greenkappa
Kuriboh
Man-eater Bug
Mecha Bunny x3
Penguin Soldier
Psychic Commander
Sangan
The Calculator
Twin-Headed Behemoth
Zombrya the Dark

~ Spell cards ~

After the Struggle
Book of Moon
Creature Swap
Cup of Ace
Enemy Controller
Mage Power (Only "hard" to get card)
Malevolent Nuzzler
Mask of the Accursed
Mystical Space Typhoon
Riryoku
Shield Crush
Soul Taker
The Shallow Grave (Only use if your oponnent got no strong monsters or
                  monsters that you cant instant destroy in his graveyard)

~ Trap cards ~

Bottomless Trap Hole
Defense Draw
Dust Tornado x2
Kunai with chain
Magic Jammer
Needle Ceiling
Radiant Mirror Force
Raigeki Break
Seven Tools of Bandit
Spendbiding Circle
Trap Hole

*NOTE: ALL THIS CARDS CAN BE OBTAINED FROM THE DARK BEGGINING PACK 1 AND DARK
BEGGINING PACK 2, THE ONES THAT CANNOT BE OBATINED THAT WAY YOU ALREADY GOT
THEM FROM THE BEGGINING.

Wait, this Deck is really bad? Yea, honestly it kinda is. It isnt the best Deck
out there but this deck CAN beat the 4. If you are wondering why I have this
"awful" deck, well if you notice there are many cards that you got from the
beggining and ALL the cards there arent even rare, except for Mage Power. So
everyone should be able to beat the 4.

Anyway I made this deck to help the ones who have trouble beating them, I
already said I beat them with it. Why do I think YOU should use this deck if
you cant get past this part? Well this deck can pretty much be made by anyone,
actually I made this deck WITHOUT using Card codes and only the cards that I
got in my trunk, actually this cards were gotten with the DP you get from the
beggining, the ones you collect in the ground and the OBLIGATORY battles. In 
this game I DIDNT battle with anyone that was not obligatory in order to
advance, so EVERYONE should be able to get it. Of course hipotetically.

Now, obviously since getting cards is all random if you cant see what the
"strategy" of that deck is and build one with the cards you currently got then
check this "formula" so that you can use similar cards to those on that deck.

  ~ Monsters ~

- 7-8 Monsters that require no summon and stay on the field with attack 1900 or
  MORE (1 can be of 1850 ATT, if they got effects that destroy other cards or
  that are really useful of course those got priority on being on your deck).
- 2 Monsters with Attack of 2100 or more, this ones can have effects that
  pretty much makes them 1 use only (Zombrya the Dark, Goblin Attack force,
  Giant Orc).
- 2 Monsters lvl 5-6 that require only 1 summon, with an attack of 2400 or
  more, again if they got useful effects then use those!
- 3-4 Monsters that Destroy or return cards to your oponnent's hand.
  (Preferably destroy them or send more than 1 card to its owner hand)
- 5 Monsters that protect you (defense) but have effects that really help you
  or that can protect you from attacks.

Total of 20 monsters

  ~ Spell cards and Trap cards ~

- 9 That can destroy monsters.
- 6 That protect you and in the next turn can help you to destroy monsters
    (Like Book of moon protects you from an attack and also changes the
    monster to defense position so that the next turn you can kill the monster
    with probably less defense than attack).
- 5 That destroy or negate spell/trap cards
- 2 Equips that add attack, unless its Kunai with Chain or any other that can
  also protect you, if so then 3 equips.
- 3 Misc cards that you consider useful and can help you.

Total of 25 cards


 - How to use the deck (More tips) -

Since having a good deck isnt what you only need to win, I'll tell you how to
"use it". The plan consists of destroying every card your oponnent places on
the field as soon as possible, if you are sure you can destroy that monster
with one of yours just by attacking wait for your turn to do so and dont waste
a card destroyer card, if you are gonna get damaged then protect yourself,
always try to leave your oponnent vulnerable to a direct attack (part of the
destroy everything in his field side tip) and attack (damage his LP) whenever
you can, in fact doesnt matter if its just 50 hp, do it if he got few cards on
his hand and spell/trap card zone.

These are my results when using the deck listed before to fight them:

First battle: Ended with 7000 LP left, used a Seven Tools of Bandit (-1000 LP).
Second battle: 6200 LP left, -800 LP from a monster damage (ATT diference).
Third battle: 3050 LP left, 2150 from battle damage total, -1000 LP from SToB.
              For this battle since I got bad luck and got no monsters on me
              while my oponnent got only 1 card on his hand and 1 spell on the
              field I attacked with a Kuriboh! (Only 300 damage), that is my
              point with attack whenever you can with what you got. On a side
              note I used the Kuriboh for a tribute summon the next turn, just
              think what you are doing and risk from time to time.
Fourth battle: 3050 LP left, no damage taken.

I hope with this section you can now beat the 4, if not you can always ask for
help in online forums, changed this because I got no time to answer your
e-mails =s
