One of Yugi’s signature cards in his Magician Deck, the Dark Magician girl is considerably weaker than the Dark Magician. She compensates this by gaining attack points for every Dark magician in the graveyard.
During the “Dawn of the Duel” arc, it is revealed that she is actually the spirit of Mana, a childhood friend of Atem and Mahado. She becomes Mahado’s apprentice and followed in his footsteps, even after death. Just as Mahado’s spirit rose to become the Dark Magician, Mana’s spirit became the Dark Magician Girl.
Beautiful cosplay! I found this from Jamaipanese, and it was taken during the Tokyo Game Show in 2008. Thank you very much for sharing this photo!
