Shadow of a Duel

Friends 'Till the End (Part 3)

Legendary Fisherman (Part 1)

11:08 Worm Drake clearly has at least 6 stars on the card for the image on the left but the right image has the correct amount of stars. 
11:22 Strings uses Polymerization to summon Humanoid Worm Drake but the card shown for the left image is De-Fusion not Polymerization like in the right image.
12:03

 Strings' duel disk is shown with 2 cards yet he just summoned Humanoid Worm Drake, which is one Monster and therefore, his duel disk should show only one Monster.

18:27 The US version of the episode shows Jam Breeding Machine in Defense Position on his duel disk but it shouldn't be visible at all since it's not a Monster.

5:59

Yami Yugi and
Yugi Muto vs.
Maximillion Pegasus
The US version of the episode shows Dark-Eyes Illusionist with 1400 DEF, which is correct but when summoned, Dark-Eyes Illusionist has 0 DEF, which should be 1400. It also appears that D-EI has one star in the US episode while in the Japanese episode there's 2, which is correct.
