Braun Honya (ほんブラウン Hon'ya Buraun) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. He is a student at Goha 5th Elementary, and he is the President of the Space Operations Duel Squadron.

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Braun while he is wearing his spacesuit, and a shot of his face.

Braun is a short round-faced boy with green hair, blue eyes and freckles. He commonly wears a spacesuit, often with the visor down, with the emblem of his club on the shoulder.

Personality[edit]

Braun believes Dueling and life to be akin to a spaceflight, constantly quoting media that is associated with space and likening the moves that he makes in a Duel to different stages of a rocket launch. He demonstrates significant arrogance as a result, claiming to have sold his soul to the devil in exchange for the power to go to space and justifying many of his actions with one of his quotes.

Later, Braun is calmer and more helpful, offering his aid to Yuga Ohdo when asked to examine the surface of the moon and alerting him when the Super Rush Robot is in trouble, as well as lending Kaizo a pair of Hubbel Space Binoculars.

Etymology[edit]

Braun's surname means "bookstore". His first name comes from Wernher von Braun, a German-born American aerospace engineer and space architect who was a pioneer of rocket and space technology in the United States.

Biography[edit]

History[edit]

Braun observed Asana Mutsuba creating "Wurm Ex-Cavator the Heavy Mequestrian Wyrm" using his Hubbel Space Binoculars, and became resolved to obtain his own Maximum Monster.[1]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

Braun, Leo and Kamome went to Maximum Mountain to search for their own Maximum Monsters, stringing up lights in the mineshaft at the Abandoned Dorm and meeting Lucidien "Luke" Kallister, Hunt Goto, and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, who held jurisdiction over the mine. Braun challenged Asana to a Rush Duel for the right to excavate in the mine, but Asana told him he would be Dueling Luke instead, a condition that Braun accepted. After Luke inflicted early damage to him using "Nightbringer Dragon", Braun brought out "Rocketortoise Modularchelon" and used the effects of his cards to steadily weaken "Nightbringer Dragon" in both Level and ATK to inflict as much damage on Luke as he could, depleting most of his LP in one attack. On his next turn, Luke brought out "Gravity Plus Dragon", but hesitated to make his move for a while until voicing a notion that Yuga Ohdo had been trying to tell him something, a notion that confused Braun. Luke then brought out two Normal Dragon monsters to empower "Gravity Plus Dragon" and ascended into "Outer Space" with "Mountain", allowing him to destroy "Rocketortoise Modularchelon" and defeat Braun with his remaining Dragons. Although Braun had lost, Luke allowed him and his friends to join him in excavating Maximum Mountain as thanks for helping him realize something during their Duel, though they found no Maximum Monsters.[1]

Braun, Leo and Kamome entered the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, meeting at Goha Stadium for registration.[2] On the first day of the tournament, Braun Dueled a member of his school's Dueling Insects Club.[3] At the end of the second day of the tournament, Braun Dueled Neiru Saionji of Team YugaNeiru with R and was defeated by "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree", admitting that Neiru had deserved his victory. Braun then watched as Trapigeon delivered a message to Yuga.[4] Yuga asked Braun to examine the moon with his Hubbel Space Binoculars, explaining that he believed whoever had set up the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal was trying to divert everyone's attention to Maximum Mountain, and Neiru gave Braun, Leo and Kamome a program to analyze the moon's surface.[5]

The next day, Braun, Leo and Kamome attended the finals, watching Roa and Romin Kassidy's Duel and Neiru's with Gavin Sogetsu.[6][7] During Yuga's Duel with Luke, Braun, Leo and Kamome finished examining the moon and they presented their findings to Yuga as the power began to go out due to someone hacking the Goha Duel Server. Braun revealed the server was actually carved into the surface of the moon, including the Rush Duel program in the shape of a robot, and his footage revealed that the "hack" was hundreds of Goha Enterprises Drones eroding the robot to "uninstall" Rush Dueling.[5] Yuga and Luke decided to continue their Duel despite knowing it would uninstall Rush Dueling, and Luke eventually defeated Yuga. Braun projected the blank surface after the robot was destroyed, and then presented the new Super Rush Robot that Yuga and Neiru had constructed to house the Rush Duel program, which would be stronger than its prior form.[8]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

Braun, Leo, and Kamome were looking at the moon with their Hubbel Space Binoculars one day when they saw the Super Rush Robot moving. Braun quickly called Yuga and alerted him to the robot's actions. The true Goha Presidents, the Goha Siblings, had returned to Earth, evicted the current president, Mimi Imimi, and challenged Yuga and his friends to Rush Duels with the Super Rush Robot held hostage by Forced Gymnastics Armaments that would shake it apart unless Yuga defeated the six siblings.[9] Braun was in Goha City one night with Leo, Kamome, Menzaburo, Sushiko, Nick and the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club when he watched the Rush Duel between Yuga and The☆Lukeman, including Yuo Goha's rage after he believed Yuga and The☆Lukeman weren't taking the Duel seriously. To Braun's shock a meteor entered the atmosphere and plunged towards Yuga, having been dragged in by the Goha Meteor Shower, and Yuga blocked the meteor with his Duel Disk, acquiring the "Fusion" card contained within it and using it to defeat The☆Lukeman, saving the Super Rush Robot.[10]

Goha Employee[edit]

Braun, Leo and Kamome went to the Goha Enterprises Main Office on a field trip, where they were met by Yuga, Luke, Romin, Gavin, Swirly and Ranze and Rinnosuke Nanahoshi, who were now working at Goha Enterprises. As they were shown around they learned that one of the groups had gone missing, and Braun noted it was likely the Dueling Insects Club.[11]

Deck[edit]

Braun uses a Reptile Deck based around turtle monsters with a space theme. His strategy is based around manipulating the stats of his opponent's monsters to lower their Levels and subsequently their ATK, including the use of "Outer Space" in his Deck, while increasing the ATK of his "Rocketortoise Modularchelon".
