"Thirst for Victory" is the fortieth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on February 21, 2018.

Due to Varis's tactics, many of the Gore's monsters have been destroyed. However, the Gore's fighting spirit still does not waver. In order to turn things around, the Gore summons his powerful ace monster, "Gouki The Giant Ogre"!

Featured Duel: The Gore vs. Varis[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 3: Gore
As he controls no monsters, Gore activates the effect of "Gouki Trainer" in his hand to reveal it and Special Summon itself, then Special Summon a "Gouki" Link Monster from his GY, but decrease that monster's ATK by 500. He Special Summons "Trainer" (0/0) in Defense Position, then Special Summons "Gouki The Great Ogre" (2600 → 2100/↙↓↘) to the right of "Trainer".

Turn 4: Varis
Varis's hand contains "Quick Launch", "Shelrokket Dragon", "Boot Sector Launch" and "Squib Draw". Varis activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Quick Launch" to Special Summon a "rokket" monster from his Deck, but it cannot attack, and it is destroyed during the End Phase. He Special Summons "Magnarokket Dragon (1800/1200) in Attack Position. The effect of "Great Ogre" reduces the ATK of all monsters on the field by a value equal to their original DEF ("Magnarokket": 1800 → 600 ATK). Varis activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Squib Draw, destroying a "rokket" monster he controls to draw two cards. He destroys "Magnarokket". Varis activates the Field Spell Card "Boot Sector Launch". Varis activates the effect of "Boot Sector Launch" to either Special Summon up to two "rokket" monsters from his hand in Defense Position, or excavate the top 6 cards of his Deck, send any excavated "Rokket" cards to the GY, and place the other cards on the bottom of his Deck in any order. He chooses the first effect and Special Summons "Shelrokket Dragon" (1100/2000) and "Metalrokket Dragon (1700/1400). The effect of "Boot Sector Launch" increases the ATK and DEF of all "Rokket" monsters on the field by 300 ("Shelrokket": 1100 → 1400/2000 → 2300; "Metalrokket": 1700 → 2000/1400 → 1700).

Varis uses "Shelrokket" and "Metalrokket" to Link Summon "Booster Dragon" (1900/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Varis Normal Summons "Shelrokket" (1100 → 1400 → 0/2000 → 2300) to the same column as "Great Ogre". Varis activates the effect of "Booster Dragon" to increase the ATK and DEF of a monster he controls by 500. He targets "Shelrokket", but as a Link Monster's effect that targeted "Shelrokket" was activated, Varis activates its effect to destroy itself, then destroy a monster in the same column as "Shelrokket", as well as all monsters in the zones adjacent to that monster. He destroys "Great Ogre" and the adjacent "Trainer". "Booster Dragon" attacks Gore directly (Gore: 2900 → 1000 LP). During the End Phase, as they were destroyed and sent to the GY this turn, Varis activates the effect of "Magnarokket" and "Shelrokket" to Special Summon a "Rokket" monster with a different name from his Deck. He Special Summons "Shelrokket" (1100 → 1400/2000 → 2300) and "Metalrokket" (1700 → 2000/1400 → 1700) in Defense Position.

Turn 5: Gore
Gore activates the Spell Card "Gouki Re-Match" to Special Summon two "Gouki" monsters with different Levels from his GY in Defense Position. He Special Summons "Gouki Moonsault" (1900/0) and "Gouki Twistcobra" (1600/0). Gore activates the effect of "Moonsault", returning a "Gouki" Link Monster from his GY to the Extra Deck, then adding a "Gouki" monster from his GY to his hand. He returns "Gouki Jet Ogre" to his Extra Deck and adds an unknown "Gouki" monster to his hand. Gore uses "Moonsault" and "Twistcobra" to Link Summon "Gouki Jet Ogre" (2000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Twistcobra" was sent from the field to the GY, Gore activates its effect to add a "Gouki" card with a different name from his Deck to his hand. He adds an unknown card. Gore Normal Summons "Gouki Suprex (1800/0). As "Suprex" was Normal Summoned, Gore activates its effect to Special Summon a "Gouki" monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Gouki Doubleteam" (1700/0) in Attack Position. Gore activates the effect of "Jet Ogre", destroying a "Gouki" monster he controls to change all monsters on the field to Attack Position. He destroys "Jet Ogre", changing "Shelrokket" and "Metalrokket" to Attack Position. As "Jet Ogre" was sent from the field to the GY, Gore activates its effect to increase the ATK of all "Gouki" monsters he controls by 500 until the end of the turn ("Doubleteam": 1700 → 2200 ATK; "Suprex": 1800 → 2300 ATK). Gore activates the Equip Spell Card "Gouki Grit" to Special Summon a "Gouki" monster from his GY and equip it with "Grit". When "Grit" leaves the field, that monster is destroyed. He Special Summons "Jet Ogre" (2000/←↓) and equips "Grit" to it.

Gore uses "Doubleteam", "Suprex" and the Link-2 "Jet Ogre" to Link Summon "Gouki The Giant Ogre" (3000/←↙↘→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Suprex" was sent from the field to the GY, Gore activates its effect to add a "Gouki" card with a different name from his Deck to his hand. He adds "Gouki Octostretch". As "Doubleteam" was used as a Link Material for the Link Summon of a "Gouki" Link Monster while its ATK was different from its original ATK, Gore activates its effect to increase that Link Monster's ATK by 500 until the end of this turn ("Giant Ogre": 3000 → 4000 ATK). As the ATK of "Giant Ogre" changed, Gore activates its effect, increasing its ATK by 1000 until the end of the turn ("Giant Ogre": 4000 → 5000 ATK). "Giant Ogre" attacks and destroys "Booster Dragon" (Varis: 4000 → 900 LP). As "Booster Dragon" was destroyed and sent to the GY, Varis activates its effect to Special Summon a Dragon monster from his GY. He Special Summons "Triple Burst Dragon" (2400/↑←↓).

Turn 6: Varis
Varis activates the effect of "Triple Burst Dragon", Tributing it to Special Summon a Link-2 or lower monster from his GY, then Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Dragon monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Booster Dragon" (1900/↙↘) and "Hibernation Dragon" (600/???). As "Hibernation Dragon" was Special Summoned, Varis activates its effect to add a Level 4 or lower DARK Dragon monster from his GY to his hand. He adds "Magnarokket" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1800 → 2100/1200 → 1500). Varis activates the effect of "Booster Dragon", increasing the ATK/DEF of "Magnarokket" by 500, but as a Link Monster's effect that targeted "Magnarokket" was activated, Varis activates its effect to destroy it, then send a monster on the field to the GY. He targets "Giant Ogre", but "Giant Ogre" is unaffected by the effects of monsters with ATK less than or equal to that of "Giant Ogre".

Varis uses "Hibernation Dragon", "Shelrokket" and the Link-2 "Booster Dragon" to Link Summon "Borrelsword Dragon" (3000/↑←↙↓). "Borrelsword Dragon" attacks "Giant Ogre", but "Borrelsword Dragon" cannot be destroyed by battle once per turn. "Giant Ogre" cannot be destroyed in battle by monsters with equal ATK to it. As "Borrelsword Dragon" battled Gore's monster, Varis activates its effect to halve the ATK of Gore's monster and make "Borrelsword Dragon" gain ATK equal to the decrease in ATK ("Giant Ogre": 3000 → 1500 ATK; "Borrelsword Dragon": 3000 → 4500 ATK). Varis activates the effect of "Borrelsword Dragon" to change an Attack Position monster on the field to Defense Position, also allowing "Borrelsword Dragon" to make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn. He targets "Metalrokket", but as a Link Monster's effect that targeted "Metalrokket" was activated, Varis activates its effect to destroy it, then destroy all of Gore's cards in the same column as "Metalrokket". As the ATK of "Giant Ogre" changed, Gore activates its effect, increasing its ATK by 1000 until the end of the turn ("Giant Ogre": 1500 → 2500 ATK). As the ATK of "Metalrokket" is lower than the ATK of "Giant Ogre", "Giant Ogre" is not affected by its effect, therefore is not sent to the GY. "Borrelsword Dragon" attacks and destroys "Giant Ogre" (Gore: 1000 → 0 LP).
