|1.||power of friendship|
A conflictingly, unproven belief that all of life's problems/obstacles can all be conquered/averted by simply believing in friendship, or the belief in others close to a particular individual or group of friends. A popular theme in both the official Yu-Gi-Oh franchise and the abridged series created by LittleKuriboh.
Téa Gardner, who appears in both the franchise and abridge series, is a strong advocate of this belief (though exaggerated far more in the abridged series).
Téa: Nothing can destroy friendship. It's the most powerful force in the universe. It's even stronger than Chuck Norris!
Téa: Screw medical science. I'm talking about friendship.
Doctor: I beg your pardon?
Téa: Friendship is the only cure for a lighting bolt to the head.
Yami: That's right. Joey was struck by lighting and with the power of friendship, he's okay.
Joey: Yep, my brain be thinking good and stuff.
