"Imperial Wrath Awakening" is the thirty-ninth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It first aired in Japan on January 18, 2015 and in Australia on December 27, 2015. It became available with official subtitles via Crunchyroll on November 29, 2016.

Yuya's opponent is Iggy Arlo from the Bandit Warrior Academy in the second round of the Arc League Championship. Facing against Iggy who claims that victory is everything, Yuya tries to make his opponent smile with his Entertainment Duels. However, with his violent Dueling methods, Iggy forces Yuya to a corner. And then an abnormal change occurs before Yuya...

Featured Duels[edit]

Gong Strong vs. Trick Tagart[edit]

Duel is shown from an unspecified turn. Gong controls "Superheavy Samurai Warlord Susanowo" (2400/3800), while Trick controls no cards and has 400 Life Points.

Gong's turn
"Susanowo" attacks directly (Trick 400 → 0).

Yuya Sakaki vs. Iggy Arlo[edit]

Yuya vs. Iggy

At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Bamboo Battleground" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.

Turn 1: Yuya
Yuya Normal Summons "Performapal Silver Claw" (1800/700).

Turn 2: Iggy
Iggy draws and subsequently Normal Summons "Hayate the Earth Star" (2100/0) without Tribute as Yuya controls a monster and he does not. Yuya attempts to find an Action Card, but Iggy beats him to it. "Hayate" attacks and destroys "Silver Claw" (Yuya 4000 → 3700).

Turn 3: Yuya
Yuya draws "Performapal Trump Witch" and subsequently activates it (Right Pendulum Scale.png 4) and "Timegazer Magician" (Left Pendulum Scale.png 8) in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (2500/2000) from his hand in Attack Position. He then Normal Summons "Performapal Camelump" (800/1800). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Hayate", but Iggy activates the effect of "Hayate" to negate the attack, as it was attacked while Iggy controlled no other monsters. Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Trump Witch", letting him use monsters he controls as Fusion Material Monsters for a Fusion Summon. He fuses "Odd-Eyes" and "Camelump" to Fusion Summon "Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (3000/2000) in Attack Position. "Beast-Eyes" attacks "Hayate", but Iggy activates the Action Card "Evasion" to negate the attack.

Turn 4: Iggy
As he controls an EARTH monster, Iggy Normal Summons "Tenma the Sky Star" (2100/0) without Tribute via its own effect. Iggy activates "Polymerization", fusing "Hayate" and "Tenma" on his field to Fusion Summon "Idaten the Conqueror Star" (3000/2200) in Attack Position. Iggy equips "Idaten" with "Magic Star Sword". Iggy finds the Action Card "Evasion". Since a Spell Card was added to his hand, he activates the effect of "Magic Star Sword", sending it to the Graveyard to increase the ATK of "Idaten" by 100 (3000 → 3100). Yuya finds an Action Card, but Iggy beats him to it. He then activates the effect of "Magic Star Sword" again ("Idaten" 3100 → 3200). This occurs four more times ("Idaten" 3200 → 3300 → 3400 → 3500 → 3600). "Idaten" attacks "Beast-Eyes", with Iggy activating the effect of "Idaten", letting him reduce the ATK of any monster it battles whose Level is at most its own to 0 ("Beast-Eyes" 3000 → 0). Yuya and Iggy race to grab an Action Card, and Yuya manages to take it, but the attack continues and "Beast-Eyes" is destroyed (Yuya 3700 → 100).

Turn 5: Yuya
Yuya activates the Action Card "Mad Hurricane" to shuffle all cards he controls into his Deck. He then activates "Performapal Turn Toad" (Right Pendulum Scale.png 3) and "Performapal Cheermole" (Left Pendulum Scale.png 5) in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Camelump" (800/1800) and "Silver Claw" (1800/700) from his Extra Deck, both in Attack Position. He then overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. Yuya activates its effect, detaching an Overlay Unit to halve the ATK of a Level 5 or higher monster Iggy controls and add that amount to its own ATK ("Idaten" 3600 → 1800), "Dark Rebellion" 2500 → 4300). Yuya activates the effect of "Dark Rebellion" again, detaching another Overlay Unit to halve the ATK of "Idaten" again and add that amount to its ATK ("Idaten" 1800 → 900, "Dark Rebellion" 4300 → 5200). "Dark Rebellion" attacks "Idaten". Iggy attempts to activate the effect of "Idaten" to make the ATK of "Dark Rebellion" 0, but since Xyz Monsters have Ranks instead of Levels, the effect cannot be used. The attack continues and "Idaten" is destroyed (Iggy 4000 → 0).
