So in a parallel universe where you face several ultimatums each day you would be royally screwed ?


Not me. The other person.
Always take the option they don't want you to chose or walk away from the entire thing with a look that tells them clearly, I have more choices than this.


I personally like ultimatums you have a choice and it normally progresses any given situation when they are applied even when it's Hobson's choice.

While Kaiba had an astronomical ego at the time when this aired, it does show that he genuinely cares about his brother. I kinda admire him for that part.

Also do note that a lot of the cards at the time followed anime original rulings so the duel itself had a weird feeling to it. Still, it was a classic moment. First time I've seen it on TV and I was like "oh shit". Idk what I would of done. Maybe win and try to save him at the same time? Lol. Yugi had a lot to fight for at the time as well...

True, ultimatums do progress a siutation - particularly in narratives. In the real world however I feel ultimatums are used when people don't have the imagination or desire to think beyond the obvious options. There are very few situations where something is one or the other. There's almost always a range of options to discuss and to determine the appropriate outcome.

Too many people in this thread are mentioning the bad 4kids dub.

There is no heart of the cards that shit is not in the japanese version and Kaiba doesn't say Yugi's attack may push him over the edge.

If Kaiba loses the duel he loses the chance to save his brother so he says he will commit suicide if Yugi beats him.

Yeh in the manga it's the same but diffrent Kaiba's heart is basicially still broken from Yugi's penalty game (omitted from the anime because it didn't include the Death T arc) and it's only fixed when he gets Mokuba back as it turns out Mokuba was the final piece to Kaiba's heart.
Yeah basicially Yugi pulled this impossible duel out of his ass because the plot needed it. Granted the rules had not been created in the actual game yet but the whole infinite Kuriboh thing was such bs I can understand that being possible when him and Pegasus were having a dark game but not in the normal game and the arrow mammoth fusion bs yeh Yugi or rather Yami Yugi
was a cheater.
