... XD

Ryou is just there for the symmetry.

(Lol, there's several of you commenting about this... I just mean that he's the only one of the five who wouldn't want to kill the Pharaoh XD)

And Y. Marik actually needs that many bullets to kill one person. X)

:star: Cosplay of Dethroned :star: - I was very excited to hear that ~RyouAngel and ~hikari-marik did cosplays of Yami Marik and Marik, respectively, based on this picture, which you can see here:

Thank you to the photographer, ~XSheri-MoonX.

does kill bill know you?
So badass. 😈 Although I agree with some other people here. Ryou is too kindhearted to be with the rowdy rough boys.

Honestly I dont think Ryou is there just for cemetry, he is kind of like the mob wife lol. I also really think that Ryou has the ability to shoot someone if it meant he lived in exchange. He does have Marik/Y.Marik/Bakura/and Akifa in his head... I can see them starting him on small things and slowly working him up, but he would be like their pretty mob wife they kept pure and classic (and firmly in Y.Marik's lap) *cough my OTP* think of it the insane murderess blonde falls for the cute innocent fluffy one that he wants to slowly corrupt more and more with pleasure and his enormous rod >.> pun intended. also Ryou was obsessed with the occult long before he got the ring, I think Ryou has a dark side, more than he lets one. He was the 'change of hearts' card when they first met. that card has two sides. Just my input. Love the piece.

Love the drawing.  My only thing is that you say Ryou's the only one in this who wouldn't want to kill the pharaoh.  Everone seems to forget that Marik changed at the end of battle city.  He even helped the pharaoh win against is dark side.  Anyway enough of me being a nerdy fangirl.  I must say I quiet like how they all look in suits, but my favorite thing about this has got to be the fact that Yami Marik has a machine gun.

i know right!(i'm soglad you brought that up), marik became a good guy when he realize(and lost the duel) it was his fault that things happen the way they did. plus why is marik's yami has his own body? marik and yami marik are the same person. that's some i never understood. :/ but i still love to battle city dueling arc. :)

Oh My God....This is so BADASS!!! Looks like Yami Marik is gun crazy!! Glee Emote 
deuxofspades Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I adore the fact that Y. Marik has a ginormous bullet-belt. Overkill does seem like his thing. Also, mmmmmmm suits. ^^
008kenichijouji Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Gotta have symmetry. Throw in unwilling Ryou. LOL!

This a great idea for a picture! And I totally would lay prostrate and cry sincerest apologies in person for flooding your inbox with all my comments....but alas....internet apologies are all you can have. I'M SORRY!!!!!
Kineil-Wicks Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Student General Artist
Oh, you're the one who did this piece! I've seen it before on had actually prompted me to check out the story it was the image of.
I love the fog and the style--this could be the poster of Yu-Gi-Oh!: Oceans Eleven or something like that....
And Yami Marik reminds me of Yoichi Hiruma from Eyeshield 21, for some reason (probably the overkill gun...).
Excellent work! :)

Yami Marik don't you think your going overboard?

This is amazing!~
And who knows, maybe Ryou had a very bad Change of Heart and really does want to kill the Pharaoh.
(That is the lamest pun I've ever come up with. 0.o)

lol with yami marik XDXDXD love his gun and i use the same on contarct zombie killer XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Xenra Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
I adore Marik's expression. <3 So very like him. And then Y. Marik, in the background, covered head to toe in bullets just makes me laugh. Trust him to be the one to go over board and call it necessary. I don't think he would make a very good spy. Too...flamboyant in his ways.
