"A Cons Game", known as "The Beauty of Destruction" in the Japanese version, is the seventy-seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It first aired in Japan on October 11, 2015, and in Australia on November 2, 2016. It became available with official subtitles via Crunchyroll on January 31, 2017

The first match of the second round is Zuzu vs. Sergey. Zuzu faces off against her opponent, aiming for the same goal as Yuya. As she tries to convey the message of the Dimensional War through her Duel, Sergey seems to be inviting Zuzu to attack him, inflicting more and more damage upon himself. Seeing all this, Zuzu attempts to stop the Duel, but...

Featured Duel: Zuzu Boyle vs. Sergey Volkov[edit]

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

Turn 1: Zuzu
Zuzu Normal Summons "Canon the Melodious Diva" (1400/2000) and Sets a card, while her hand contains "Mozarta the Melodious Maestra", "Solo the Melodious Songstress" and "Re-Fusion".

Turn 2: Sergey
Sergey Normal Summons "Thorn Prisoner Van" (0/0).

Turn 3: Zuzu
Zuzu activates her face-down "Melodious Rhythm Change", letting her return a "Melodious" monster on the field to the hand and Special Summon another "Melodious" monster from her hand. She returns "Canon" and Special Summons "Mozarta" (2600/2000) in Attack Position. Zuzu then activates the effect of "Mozarta", letting her Special Summon a Level 4 or lower "Melodious" monster from her hand once per turn. She Special Summons "Canon" (1400/2000) in Attack Position and Normal Summons "Solo" (1600/1000). "Mozarta" attacks "Van", but Sergey activates the effect of "Van", letting him reveal a "Thorn Prisoner" monster in his hand and pay 400 LP to reduce the battle damage to 0. He reveals "Thorn Prisoner Darli" (Sergey: 4000 → 3600). The attack continues and "Van" is destroyed. At the end of the Damage Step, the effect of "Van" activates, Special Summoning itself from the Graveyard and the revealed monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Van" (0/0) and "Darli" (0/0), both in Attack Position. Solo attacks "Darli", but Sergey activates the effect of "Darli" as he controls another "Thorn Prisoner" monster, letting him pay 400 LP (Sergey: 3600 → 3200) to negate an attack once per turn. "Canon" attacks and destroys "Darli" (Sergey: 3200 → 1800).[Notes 1]

Turn 4: Sergey
Sergey Normal Summons another copy of "Darli" (0/0). Sergey tunes the Level 1 "Van" with the Level 1 "Darli" to Synchro Summon "Thorn Observer Zuma" (0/0) in Attack Position. Its effect activates as it was Synchro Summoned, placing a Thorn Counter on every monster on the field. As long as "Zuma" is on the field, monsters with Thorn Counters cannot attack and the turn player will take 400 damage for every Thorn Counter on the field during each End Phase. Sergey Sets a card (Sergey: 1800 → 1400).

Turn 5: Zuzu
Zuzu draws "Polymerization". Sergey activates his face-down "Thorn Growth", which will inflict 400 damage to the turn player during the End Phase for every Thorn Counter on the field, but when a Thorn Counter leaves the field, Sergey will take 100 damage for each Counter. Zuzu activates "Polymerization", fusing "Canon" and "Mozarta" with "Solo" to Fusion Summon "Bloom Prima the Melodious Choir" (1900/2000) in Attack Position. Zuzu's hand contains "1st Movement Solo" and "Re-Fusion". The effect of "Bloom Prima" increases its own ATK by 300 for each Fusion Material used (1900 → 2800), while the effect of "Thorn Growth" inflicts 300 damage to Sergey as three Thorn Counters have left the field (Sergey: 1400 → 1100). "Bloom Prima" attacks and destroys "Zuma", with Sergey activating the effect of "Zuma" as it was targeted for an attack while its Synchro Materials are in the Graveyard. He can pay 400 LP (Sergey: 1100 → 700) to reduce the battle damage to 0, but the effect of "Thorn Growth" inflicts another 100 damage to him as a Thorn Counter left the field (Sergey: 700 → 600). As there are no Thorn Counters on the field, the other effect of "Thorn Growth" causes it to destroy itself. At the end of the Damage Step, the effect of "Zuma" lets Sergey Special Summon "Zuma" and both of its Synchro Materials from the Graveyard in Attack Position. He Special Summons "Zuma" (0/0), "Van" (0/0) and "Darli" (0/0). "Bloom Prima" can attack twice per Battle Phase, so it attacks "Zuma", but Sergey activates the effect of "Darli" as he controls another "Thorn Prisoner" monster, paying 400 LP (Sergey: 600 → 200) to negate the attack.

Turn 6: Sergey
Sergey activates "Polymerization", fusing "Van" and "Darli" with "Zuma" to Fusion Summon "Thorn Overserver Vandarlizuma" (0/0) in Attack Position. Its effect makes its ATK the value of Sergey's current Life Points subtracted from 2500, then doubled (0 → 4600). Sergey activates the effect of "Van Darli Zuma", letting him pay 100 LP (Sergey: 200 → 100) once per turn to change an opponent's monster's ATK to 100 until the end of this turn ("Bloom Prima": 2800 → 100, "Van Darli Zuma": 4600 → 4800). "Van Darli Zuma" attacks "Bloom Prima", with Zuzu attempting to grab an Action Card, but Sergey rams his Duel Runner into hers to block the attempt. The attack continues and "Bloom Prima" is destroyed (Zuzu: 4000 → 0).
