attacks, pointing out he's already won the Duel, but not in time for them to escape the out-of-control train, as after the Duel, it derails itself and falls off a cliff.

Grand Championship

June also takes part in the KC Grand Championship, where she duels two unknown Duelists. She loses in off-screen in the semi-finals and spends the rests of the tournament cheering from the sidelines.

Dawn of the Duel

This series is taken place after the KC Grand Championship, Dartz and the Grand Leviathan, and the adventure of Capsule Monsters. June's grandfather tells her the story of how he obtained the Millennium Earrings, traversing through the tomb of the great Queen Akemi. Their first trap consists of statues that attack the tomb robber if you do not pay respect to the Queen. Her grandfather figures out the secret because of how the statues have their feet, their left foot forward. One of the guides dies in the process. The second trap consists of tablets that contain creatures from the Shadow Realm. The other guide deceives Mr. Pearl by hitting him in the shoulder with a sharp stone from a slingshot, causing a slight gash to appear. (In the Japanese version, said guide shoots him with a gun.) Mr. Pearl falls off the side, grabbing the cliff, holding on tightly. As the other guide eventually perishes after being attacked by a shadow creature turned flesh, Mr. Pearl looks above him on the ledge, to see a beautiful woman standing there, but for some reason, she is dressed in Egyptian clothing, and none the less, dressed in gold. The woman kneels and says, "I've been waiting for you". She then helps Mr. Pearl up onto the ledge as he passes out. When he comes to, he retrieves the earrings at the end of the corridor, and in his mind, he could swear to himself that he saw the ghost of Queen Akemi. The flashback ends, and June falls asleep for the night, excited, and sad about the day to come.

The next day, when they arrive in Egypt after a long journey, they meet up with Marik, Odion, and Ishizu, who asks to speak to the Pharaoh. They take a journey to the place where the Tablet of the Pharaoh and the Queen was sealed, and once there, the Pharaoh holds the Egyptian God Cards up for it to see. They all get blinded by a light, which sucks the Pharaoh and the Queen out of Yugi and June's body along with the Puzzle and Earrings, and travels back to the world of their past lifes as Pharaoh and Queen. There, she undergoes the events that happened recently before she died. She learns that her father commanded four priests, known as Priest Shiroi, Priest Valkyrin, Priest Arron and Priest Jono. The day Silver becomes queen, she was told that she is engaged to the Pharaoh, her father wanted to marry the Pharaoh so they can rule their two kingdoms as one. Akemi was surprised and shocked, she and the Pharoah were actally engaged to be married!

Also the day Akemi becomes king, the Thief King Bakura attacks the palace, filling the Queen's head with lies that her father, Takeo, was the one who created her Millennium Item, and it is also found that Bakura dragged Takeo into the Throne Room.

However, Silver can't bear to listen to this madman anymore, and summons Lugian the Guardian to combat Bakura's Diabound, his God Monster. The priests are in shock, as well as Bakura, while SIlver unleashes his power, making Bakura flee to recover from battle.

Afterwards, Akemi along with Priest Shiroi and her court went to the Pharaoh Atemu’s kingdom so they could join forces with the power of the seven Millennium Items and her Mystery Item. Later on, Akemi, Yami and their courts fought against Zorc Necrophades. After the battle, Akemi and Yami along with the gang journey back into the real world, having the good Bakura back and the evil Bakura destroyed with Zorc, and embark on their final journey that will decide Atem and Akemi's fate—whether they should stay in the present for another 5,000 years, or move onto the afterlife.

Ceremonial Battle

With the seven Millennium Items, the Millennium Earrings, three Egyptian God Cards, Zorc Necrophades defeated, their past learned, that including his true name, the pharaoh and the queen can depart the mortal world, and join their faithful priests in the afterlife. In order to open the doorway to the afterlife, Yami must be defeated in a Duel, known as the Ceremonial Battle.

Silver and her friends follow the Egyptian belief that a pharaoh must depart via a boat. Joey and Kaiba both volunteer to face Yami in the battle, but Yugi insists that he shall battle Yami. Yami leaves Yugi to think in private, as he constructs a Deck for the battle. Yugi does the same for Yami.

They arrive at the Eye of Wdjat. Like Yami Yugi and Yugi, Silver and June split into two separate physical bodies so they both watch the Ceremonial Battle between Yami and Yugi.

After Yugi won the Duel, June falls to her knees, crying. Silver tells June that she was the greatest friend Silver ever had and reminds June that she has taught her about the principles needed to win. Now that she was leaving with Yami Yugi, she says that there would be no one else for June to follow and that there would only be one June.

The Eye of Wdjat glows on the wall. Yami and Silver tells their true names, Atem and Akemi, in order to open the gate to the afterlife. Their friends try to talk them out of leaving at first, but come to accept that they must go. Yami and Silver then says farewells and enters the afterlife to join their Ancient Egyptian friends.
