==Yu-Gi-Oh! Friendship is Magic (1st Arc) Summary==
A tribute progressive rock band, Lamss, crash lands outside Ponyville in their plane headed to Saffron City in the Pokemon World for a Duel Monsters tournament. The members include, Alex Morrison: the guitarist, Sammy Morrison: Alex's sister and bassist, Maddie Rivers: the drummer, Lucas DeSilva: the singer and rhythm guitarist, and Scott Freeman: the keyboardist. With them is Charley DeSilva, an aquatic pokemon enthusiast and part time violinist, Lucas being her adopted brother, and Orion, a gallade, and Lamss' pilot and sole stage technician. When ponies begin circling the aircraft, including Equestria's ruler, Princess Celestia, the Lamss members introduce themselves and Orion explains that they flew into a portal that incidentally sent them there. Princess Celestia has an abandoned theater renovated into temporary housing for the band. Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle, a resident of Ponyville, decides to give the band members a tour of her town.
During the tour, Lamss meets Apple Bloom, a young filly, Applejack, Apple Bloom's sister and one of Twilight's friends, Fluttershy, a pegasus and another of Twilight's friends, and Rarity, a unicorn and one of Twilight's friends. Their tour ends at Twilight's home, the Ponyville library. While waiting for the finishing touches of the theater, Alex and Maddie pass the time by playing Duel Monsters, a card game from their world, using holographic machines on their wrists called duel disks. The resident ponies having never seen this game before are instantly enthralled by the game. When the theater is finished, Lamss is surprised to find many ponies welcoming them in a surprise party thrown by Pinkie Pie, another of Twilight's friends. Pinkie Pie convinces the band to play a set for them after she set up their instruments on the stage. When the party ends, a letter is found from Princess Celestia with 200 gold coins, the currency of Equestria.
Over time, the ponies and human's warm up to each other. Rainbow Dash connects with Alex over their love of flying, Applejack and Maddie get along well while working, Fluttershy takes a liking to Charley over their similar love of animals, Pinkie Pie and Lucas bond over cooking and with their jolly personalities, Scott with Apple Bloom and her 2 friends: Sweetie Belle, Rarity's sister, and Scootaloo, a pegasus filly, while helpig them find their cutie marks, magical brands that determine a pony's special talent, Sammy with Spike, Twilight's dragon assistant, over their fiery passion and teamwork in dueling, and Orion with Twilight Sparkle, over their love of reading and magic, which Orion can control with a magic wand-like artifact he found in his world. One day, the Lamss members eventually teach their new pony friends the game of Duel Monsters, which they seem to enjoy.
On Nightmare Night, a Halloween-like holiday, Alex and Orion teach the lonely and sullen co-ruler of Equestria, Princess Luna, how to play Duel Monsters. Thanking them for their kindness, she invites Alex, Orion, and Twilight to stay in Canterlot, Equestria's capitol, to discuss with Princess Celestia a plan to have Lamss return to their world. During their time, they deduce that conventional means of returning are not possible. However, they can use the immense power of the Elements of Harmony, the most powerful magic known to ponydom, to return home if they can complete a great trial. Alex, Orion, and Twilight plan to host a dueling tournament in Ponyville where the winners (it's a doubles tournament) will be granted one wish by the Elements of Harmony.
Among the many ponies and creatures from all over Equestria that are participating in the tournament are Trixie, a boastful unicorn magician, and Gilda, a vengeful griffon. They have each participated with each other to get revenge for the embarrassments befallen them in the past by Twilight and her friends. They begin by ambushing Scott and Sammy, mainly to see their dueling style.
Throughout the 3 days of preliminaries, everyone duels their hardest. Through Trixie's magic, Gilda and Trixie curse the souls of every opponent they beat through means of a highly dangerous and illegal spell. Among the casualties are Derpy Hooves, Doctor Hooves, Mr. and Mrs. Cake (Pinkie Pie's parental figures), Braeburn and Big Macintosh (Applejack's cousin and brother, respectively), Applejack, Apple Bloom, Spike, and dozens of Princess Celestia's royal guards who were sent to stop them. Alex and Orion are almost defeated by the two themselves, but a technicality saves them at the last possible second. Gilda expresses remorse over taking the life of a filly (Apple Bloom) and begins to have doubts about the evil acts she's committing.
On the day of the finals, Alex and Orion (who qualified) climb their way up through the bracket to face Trixie and Gilda again. They learn that Trixie and Gilda will use their wish from the Elements of Harmony to rule over Equestria with an iron fist. Gilda however can't take Trixie's verbal abuse and inner guilt and tries to quit but is forced to continue on by Trixie. Alex and Orion finally meet Trixie and Gilda in the finals. If Trixie and Gilda are defeated, the curse will be broken and all of Alex's friends will be free. After obtaining a mysterious new power during the duel, Alex and Orion defeat their enemies and free their friends. Trixie is arrested and sentenced to life in prison, while Gilda, who showed bravery in standing up to Trixie, only gets 2 years (she only serves 1 for good behavior).
Alex and Orion then must duel and defeat the Princesses Celestia and Luna to be able to harness the Elements' powers. Alex and Orion win, but instead of wishing themselves home, they wished for Orion to be able to have enough power to return from their world to Equestria whenever they wanted. In a couple of days, Lamss returns home in their plane after a tearful goodbye. They return 2 years later.
