"Tricking The Trickster", known as "Fierce Fight! Destiny Riding on Black Feathers!" in Japan, is the 127th episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
Broder warns Crow that if he draws a Speed Spell on his next turn, the match will become a hopeless scenario from which defeat is inescapable. In the end he doesn't draw a Speed Spell, but decides to defeat Crow now. Broder is aware that he can use the effect of "Speed World 2" and the effect of "Loki" to take out Crow's face-downs, but then realizes that Crow already knows that. Broder deduces that Crow's face-downs are bluffs in an attempt to get him to waste his Speed Counters so that way he will have less Speed Counters when Yusei Fudo takes over. Can Crow come out of this almost hopeless situation before the attack of the Gods wipe him out?
Crow Hogan vs. Broder
Crow Hogan has 50 LP and 7 Speed Counters, and controls no cards. Broder has 2950 LP and 11 Speed Counters, and controls "Loki, Lord of the Aesir" (3300/3000) and "Thor, Lord of the Aesir" (3500/2800), both in Attack Position, as well as 1 Set card in his Spell & Trap Zone.
Turn 13: Crow Hogan
Crow draws "Black Wing". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Crow's SPC: 7 → 8; Broder's SPC: 11 → 12). Crow then activates the effect of "Speed World 2" to remove seven Speed Counters (Crow's SPC: 8 → 1) and draw a card ("Black Wing"). Crow Sets two cards.
Turn 14: Broder
Broder draws, intending to draw a Speed Spell (to use with the effect of "Speed World 2" to remove four Speed Counters and inflict 800 damage to Crow for each Speed Spell in his hand, which will cause Crow to lose), but he doesn't draw one. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Crow's SPC: 1 → 2; Broder's SPC: 12). Broder activates the effect of "Speed World 2" to remove ten Speed Counters (Broder's SPC: 12 → 2) and destroy one of Crow's Set cards ("Black Wing").
"Loki, Lord of the Aesir" attacks directly, but Crow activates his face-down second copy of "Black Wing" to negate the attack by removing from play a "Blackwing" monster from his Graveyard, however Broder activates the effect of "Loki, Lord of the Aesir" to negate the effect of "Black Wing" and destroy it. Crow removes from play "Blackwing - Calima the Haze" from his Graveyard in order to revive "Black-Winged Dragon" (8/2800/1600) in Attack Position.
A replay occurs and Broder uses "Loki" to attack "Black-Winged Dragon", but Crow activates the second effect of "Black Wing", removing from play the two copies of "Black Wing" in his Graveyard in order to destroy "Black-Winged Dragon" and "Loki" and inflict the ATK of "Loki" as damage to Broder (Broder 2950 → 0). Broder then chains his face-down "Dromi the Sacred Shackles" to inflict damage to Crow equal to the ATK difference between "Black-Winged Dragon" and "Loki" (Crow 50 → 0). The Duel ends in a DRAW.
Yusei Fudo vs. Halldor
Turn 15: Yusei Fudo
Yusei draws "Cosmic Compass". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Yusei's SPC: 2 → 3; Halldor's SPC: 2 → 3). Yusei then Normal Summons "Cosmic Compass" (1/100/300) in Defense Position. Since "Cosmic Compass" was Normal Summoned, Yusei activates its effect to Special Summon two "Compass Tokens" (1/0/0 for both) in Defense Position (one for each monster Halldor controls). Yusei Sets two cards.
Turn 16: Halldor
Halldor draws. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Yusei's SPC: 3 → 4; Halldor's SPC: 3 → 4). Yusei activates his face-down "Monster Chain", which gains three Chain Counters (one for each monster Yusei controls). While "Monster Chain" is face-up, neither player can declare an attack. During each of Halldor's End Phases, Yusei must remove a Chain Counter from "Monster Chain". When "Monster Chain" has no Chain Counters, it will be destroyed.
Halldor Normal Summons "Valkyrie of the Nordic Ascendant" (2/400/800) in Attack Position. Halldor then activates the effect of "Valkyrie of the Nordic Ascendant" to send "Interdimensional Matter Transporter" and "Baton of the Hero" from his hand to the Graveyard and Special Summon two "Einherjar Tokens" (4/1000/1000 for both) in Defense Position. Halldor then tunes his two "Einherjar Tokens" with "Valkyrie of the Nordic Ascendant" in order to Synchro Summon "Odin, Father of the Aesir" (10/4000/3500) in Attack Position.
- Due to Broder's Trap activation being shown early (to provide a visualization of the 'simultaneous' tie), the effect is explained incorrectly and "Loki" is listed as the monster whose being removed from play triggered the effect instead of "Black Feather Dragon". This is likely also due to that part of the effect of "Calima" effect not being explained, which also resulted in no explanation for "Black Feather Dragon" leaving the field (much like "Red Dragon Archfiend" and the effect of "Rage Resynchro" in episode 98).
The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
- This card belongs to Broder, but it was placed on Halldor's side of the field after Broder loses due to the rulings of the WRGP.
- This card belongs to Dragan, but was placed on Broder's side of the field after Dragan lost in episode 125 due to the rulings of the WRGP. It would later be placed on Halldor's side of the field after Broder loses due to the above rulings.
