A stupid rhetorical phrase used in the 4Kids
version of the anime YuGiOh

"You activated my trap card! A costly mistake!"

Main character plays a card in a ridiculously nonsensical children's card game in which there seems to be no identifiable rules.
Main character: "You've activated my trap card! A costly mistake!"
Minor character is physically injured from the results of said children's card game
