Next Secret Meeting

"AI's Longing" is the sixty-seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on September 5, 2018.

The Earth Ignis learned about the situation regarding the Cyberse World from the Water Ignis. In order to test humanity, the Earth Ignis challenges Playmaker to a match. Due to the "G Golem" monster's attack, Playmaker is caught in a pinch. However, despite all the odds, Playmaker refuses to give in, betting it all on one move!

Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Earth[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 4: Earth
Earth activates the effect of "G Golem Crystal Heart", Special Summoning an EARTH Link Monster from his GY to his field so it is co-linked to "Crystal Heart", then placing a G Golem Counter on "Crystal Heart". He Special Summons "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" (2800/←↑→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to ("Crystal Heart": 0 → 1 G Golem Counter). The effect of "Crystal Heart" increases the ATK of all EARTH monsters it points to by 600 for each G Golem Counter on it ("Invalid Dolmen": 2800 → 3400 ATK). "Invalid Dolmen" attacks and destroys "Zombie Prosaber" (Playmaker: 3400 → 1600 LP).

Turn 5: Playmaker
Playmaker Normal Summons "Clock Wyvern" (1800/1000). As "Clock Wyvern" was Normal or Special Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect, halving its ATK and Special Summoning a "Clock Token" (0/0). Playmaker uses the "Clock Token" to Link Summon "Linkuriboh" (300/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker activates the Spell Card "Link Back", moving a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone to a Main Monster Zone it points to, then sending a card from the top of his Deck to the GY equal to the Link Rating of that monster. He moves the Link-1 "Linkuriboh" to the zone its bottom-center Link Arrow pointed to, then sends the top card of his Deck ("Flick Clown") to the GY. Playmaker activates the Spell Card "Cynet Fusion", Fusion Summoning a Cyberse Fusion monster from his Extra Deck, using monsters from his hand or field as Fusion Material. As Playmaker controls no monsters in the Extra Monster Zone, he can banish a Cyberse Link Monster from his GY as Fusion Material. He fuses "Clock Wyvern" and "Linkuriboh" from his field and banishes "Zombie Prosaber" from his GY to Fusion Summon "Cyberse Clock Dragon" (2500/2000) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Cyberse Clock Dragon" was Fusion Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect, sending cards from the top of his Deck to the GY equal to the combined Link Ratings of the materials used for its Fusion Summon, and until the end of the next turn, it gains 1000 ATK for each card sent to the GY by this effect but Playmaker's other monsters cannot attack. The combined Link Ratings of the Link-1 "Linkuriboh" and Link-1 "Zombie Prosaber" are two, so Playmaker sends the top two cards of his Deck ("Cyberse Wizard" and an unknown card[Notes 1]) to the GY ("Cyberse Clock Dragon": 2500 → 4500 ATK).

"Cyberse Clock Dragon" attacks "Crystal Heart". The effect of "Invalid Dolmen" forces monsters Playmaker controls to attack it, if able, so "Cyberse Clock Dragon" attacks and destroys "Invalid Dolmen" (Earth: 4000 → 2900 LP). As "Invalid Dolmen" was destroyed, Earth activates its effect, negating the effects of all face-up cards Playmaker controls. The effects of "Cyberse Clock Dragon" are negated ("Cyberse Clock Dragon": 4500 → 2500 ATK).

Turn 6: Earth
Earth activates the effect of "Crystal Heart", Special Summoning "Invalid Dolmen" (2800/←↑→) from his GY to the zone its bottom-center Link Arrow points to, then placing a G Golem Counter on "Crystal Heart" ("Crystal Heart": 1 → 2 G Golem Counters) ("Invalid Dolmen": 2800 → 4000 ATK). "Invalid Dolmen" attacks and destroys "Cyberse Clock Dragon" (Playmaker: 1600 → 100 LP). As "Crystal Heart" has two or more G Golem Counters, its effect allows monsters co-linked to it to attack twice during each Battle Phase this turn. "Invalid Dolmen" attacks Playmaker directly. As Earth's monster attacked directly while Playmaker has three or more Cyberse monsters in his GY, he activates his face-down Quick-Play Spell Card "Spool Code", negating the attack and Special Summoning up to three "Spool Tokens" (0/0) in Defense Position, but they cannot be Tributed for a Tribute Summon. Earth Sets two cards.

Turn 7: Playmaker
Playmaker uses two "Spool Tokens" to Link Summon "Clock Lizard" (1200/↙↓). Playmaker uses a "Spool Token" to Link Summon "Link Devotee" (500/↑) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Clock Lizard" points to. As "Link Devotee" was Special Summoned, its effect activates, preventing Playmaker from Link Summoning Link-3 or higher Link Monsters. Playmaker activates the Continuous Spell Card "Link Drive", and activates its effect, Tributing a Link Monster he controls, then inflicting damage to Earth equal to that monster's Link Rating times 500. He Tributes the Link-1 "Link Devotee" (Earth: 2900 → 2400 LP). As the co-linked "Link Devotee" was Tributed, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning two "Link Tokens" (0/0). Playmaker uses two "Link Tokens" to Link Summon "Security Dragon" (1100/↑↓) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Clock Lizard" points to. As "Security Dragon" is co-linked, Playmaker activates its effect, returning a monster Earth controls to the hand. Playmaker targets "Invalid Dolmen", however the effect of "Invalid Dolmen" makes co-linked monsters Earth control become unaffected by the effects of monsters Playmaker controls.

Playmaker activates the effect of "Clock Lizard", Tributing it to return a Fusion Monster from his GY to his Extra Deck, then Fusion Summoning that monster by banishing monsters from his GY as Fusion Materials. He returns "Cyberse Clock Dragon" to his Extra Deck, then banishes "Clock Wyvern", "Clock Lizard", "Linkuriboh", and "Link Devotee" to Fusion Summon "Cyberse Clock Dragon" (2500/2000) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Cyberse Clock Dragon" was Fusion Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect, sending cards from the top of his Deck to the GY equal to the combined Link Ratings of the materials used for its Fusion Summon, and until the end of the next turn, it gains 1000 ATK for each card sent to the GY by this effect but Playmaker's other monsters cannot attack. The combined Link Ratings of the Link-2 "Clock Lizard", Link-1 "Linkuriboh" and Link-1 "Link Devotee" are four, so Playmaker sends the top four cards of his Deck ("RAM Clouder", "Launcher Commander", "Digitron", and "Backup Secretary") to the GY ("Cyberse Clock Dragon": 2500 → 6500 ATK). Earth activates his face-down Trap Card "Gravity Fluctuation", destroying an EARTH monster he controls, then Playmaker destroys a monster he controls with ATK less than or equal to Earth's destroyed monster's ATK. Earth destroys "Invalid Dolmen" and Playmaker destroys "Security Dragon". As "Invalid Dolmen" was destroyed, Earth activates its effect, negating the effects of all face-up cards Playmaker controls. The effects of "Cyberse Clock Dragon" are negated ("Cyberse Clock Dragon": 6500 → 2500 ATK).

"Cyberse Clock Dragon" attacks "Crystal Heart". Earth activates his face-down Trap Card "Love Gravity", Special Summoning an EARTH Link Monster from his GY to his zone a Link Monster points to. He Special Summons "Invalid Dolmen" (2800/←↑→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to ("Invalid Dolmen": 2800 → 4000 ATK). As "Clock Lizard" was banished this turn, its effect reduces the ATK of all monsters Special Summoned to Earth's field by 400 for each Cyberse monster in Playmaker's GY until the end of this turn. There are ten monsters in the GY, so "Invalid Dolmen" loses 4000 ATK ("Invalid Dolmen": 4000 → 0 ATK).

"Cyberse Clock Dragon" attacks and destroys "Invalid Dolmen" (Earth: 2400 → 0 LP).
