While a lot of people aren’t fond of Season 4, I would like to point out that it seems 4kids actually tried to improve it. They added some funny lines (such as Duke’s impression of Kaiba), made the background music eerie (like that dreaded Orichalcos theme), and the overall voice acting was more realistic (especially when Dan Green performed Orichalcos-influence Yugi).
Then there’s the bit where Dartz was convincing Atem to surrender. Because 4kids added the detail of Atem’s eyes glowing bright green, it had the subtle implication that Dartz was using his words AND slight hypnosis using Orichalcos Magic during that scene. He knew Atem was straining during the duel at that point, so he pretty much manipulated his mind into losing.
I didn’t like season 4 much myself but the jokes did relieve some tension in what was a very dark season. I haven’t heard either Orichalcos theme much but I know both versions had really good music ^^ Duke impersonating Kaiba was pretty funny. He should do that more often XD
As for Dartz hypnotizing Yami, he does have a very high charisma bonus, and Atem was already at his lowest. I feel like it could go either way. His eyes glowing green might have meant less ‘hypnotizing’ and more ‘already giving into the Orichalcos’ until he snaps out of it. Half the power of the Oricalchos is temptation! (The other half is overpowered cards.)
…Yami’s eyes look like a mix of Orichalcos green and Mountain Dew green, now that I think of it. XD

Dan Green: It was always fun to fight Kaiba, and Pegasus as well. That first season had a really nice arc to it, and it was very satisfying. But I think–and this is going to sound completely narcissistic–when the series concluded and it was Yugi versus Yami, I thought storywise, that was a very interesting duel.
Audience Member: Dan Green! I would like to challenge you for the title of King of Games… Dan: You will so win. I am not a good duelist. :(
Ted Lewis: I would’ve loved to play Mai, but, uh… I’d also love to play Yami Yugi because he’s famous.
Audience Member: I wanna know why Wayne never recognizes that he was Dartz. Wayne Grayson: Oh no, I know I was Dartz. I-I just don’t wanna spend an hour and a half running down my very nuanced Yu-Gi-Oh characters. But I know. (Dartz voice) Yes, i was the King of Atlantis…and Shadi… (normal voice) Well now I’ll say it. Here and now, for all the cameras, I PLAYED DARTZ! Yes! …He’s a bad guy.
Audience Member: How annoying was it to work with 4Kids? Wayne: It was really annoying cashing all those checks.
(the actors are asked to say ‘their signature lines’) Tristan: …Go Yugi! Yusei: From two come one, and from one comes great cosmic might! I Synchro Summon Stardust Dragon! Pegasus: Your turn, Yugi-boy~ Yugi: Grandpa said to always believe in the heart of the cards! Yami: That’s right. It’s time to duel! Arthur Hawkins: Hello, I’m Professor Arthur Hawkins. Yami Bakura: I’m going to send Arthur Hawkins to the graveyard! Jack Atlas: I’m Jack Atlas, the master of faster! Joey: I gotta do it for my sister… Serenity!

“Memes? Are you kidding me?”
Dartz questioned placing a cigarette between his lips and leaning back in his office chair. That was her almighty solution for his nicotine addiction. He expected a response this pitiful from Valon, especially when he asked him why he was always preparing to light a cigarette when he walked into the room. Being around the Soldiers of DOMA was enough stress for another ten thousand years, ignoring every successful prank pulled on their master. Procrastination, foolishness, and failure, angered him, which resulted in him monitoring their missions. At the end of the day, nothing relaxed Dartz like a pack of cigarettes and a massage.
But memes? Now, Dartz had perused the internet more times than he had traveled around the world and has not found memes funny. They wasted more time than watching cat videos on YouTube. Maybe he was uncultured but whatever Isabel was talking about didn’t seem healthy.
Before speaking, Dartz removed the cigarette from his lips and exhaled rings of smoke out of his mouth.
“Honey, I’ve been smoking since the twenties and I have no intention of quitting. Anything that brings me closer to death I’ll embrace. I doubt that internet memes would help me anyways.”
