The Enemy Controller (Japanese: エネミーコントローラー), sometimes called “Ene-Con” (エネコン) for short, is a magic card from the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game pictured as a generic game controller.
On Nico Nico Douga (NND) and YouTube, it is a MAD video fad centered around a scene from the 3rd season of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime where Seto Kaiba uses the card to control one Yugi’s monsters. This scene has been parodied multiple times.
The scene originates from “Yu-Gi-Oh! Season 3 Episode 129: Clash in the Coliseum, Part 1 (The Sky Coliseum: Yugi vs Kaiba). Kaiba uses his face down magic card, Enemy Controller, to control one of Yugi’s monsters so he can summon his god monster, Obelisk the Tormentor. But at the last moment Yugi uses his face down trap card, Lightforce Sword, which prevents Obelisk from being summoned for three turns.
While using Enemy Controller Kaiba shouts out “Reverse Card Open” and the button sequence “Left Right A B” in order to control the monster. The slight ridiculousness provoked some mild lulz, but it took a video remix years later to start the internet meme.
More parodies followed, including MADs and AMVs. Several western users on Youtube created their own YouTube Poop Music Videos (YTPMVs). Most of the YTPMVs use the Japanese source video, while less commonly the English version is used.
Official “Enemy Controller” Game
On January 2010, KONAMI released Duel Terminal – Pulse of the Trishula, the eighth installment of KONAMI Yu-gi-oh arcade Duel Terminal series. Surprisingly, it includes a mini game of Seto Kaiba’s Enemy Controller. In this game, players inputs commands along with Kaiba’s order which quite resembled to MAD videos. Moreover, several of his remarks are exactly popular phrases in the Enemy Controller series.
