Featured Duel: Yusei Fudo vs. Jack Atlas
Before the start of the Duel, as per the rules of a Turbo Duel, the Field Spell "Speed World" is activated. If a player activates a non-"Speed Spell" Spell, they take 2000 damage. During each player's Standby Phase, each player places a Speed Counter on "Speed World", up to a maximum of twelve each. Also, each time a player takes damage, they reduce their Speed Counters by one for every 1000 points of damage they took.

Turn 2: Jack
During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Yusei: 0 → 1 SPC, Jack: 0 → 1 SPC). Jack Normal Summons "Mad Archfiend" (1800/0) in Attack Position. "Mad Archfiend" attacks and destroys "Quillbolt Hedgehog". "Mad Archfiend" subsequently inflicts piercing damage through its own effect (Yusei: 4000 → 3000 LP, 1 → 0 SPC). Jack's hand contains "Twin-Shield Defender", "Big Piece Golem", "Medium Piece Golem", "Dark Resonator", and "Sinister Sprocket".

As Yusei controls a Tuner, Yusei activates the effect of "Quillbolt Hedgehog" from his Graveyard to revive it (800/800) in Defense Position but it will be removed from play when it leaves the field. Yusei tunes "Quillbolt Hedgehog" with "Junk Synchron" in order to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" (2300/1300) in Attack Position.
