"Making it Mine", known as "The Sublime Super Paladin" in the Japanese version, is the ninety-seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It first aired in Japan on March 20, 2016 and in Australia on November 30, 2016. It became available with official subtitles via Crunchyroll on March 14, 2017.

As the chaos in New Domino City escalates, the leader of the Lancers, Declan finally makes his own move! At the same time, Jack easily fends off the Duel Chasers, and drives Yuya into a corner. On the other hand, Yuya uses his own Dueling in order to respond to Jack!! As their souls push the Duel to a new height, a new monster was awakened…!!


The Duel Chasers are defeated with ease by Jack.

Jack activates the effect of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend", destroying all Special Summoned monsters his opponent controls with equal or less ATK than "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend". Using its "Ruthless Inferno" effect, "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" destroys the fifteen "Goyo Emperors" and Yuya's "Timebreaker Magician" and "Performapal Radish Horse" with a massive blast of flames. The five Duel Chasers and their Duel Runners are sent flying as they all fall from 4000 LP to zero. Then the flames approach Yuya as well and he disappears behind a cloud of smoke as Jack explains that the effect of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" will also inflict 500 points of damage for each monster that it destroyed with its effect. As Melissa's helicopter flies over the cloud of smoke, Melissa notes that seventeen monsters were destroyed by the effect of "Red Dragon", so that means that it will have inflicted 8500 points of damage. Frank cries Yuya's name and Tarren asks if Yuya got taken out too. Amanda whispers, "No way!" But Gong replies that Yuya hasn't lost yet and Yuya drives out of the cloud of smoke, having activated the Action Spell "Acceleration", which he explains negated the effect damage. Melissa cries that Yuya made it out by the skin of his teeth. The Commons kids cheer that Yuya made it, and Chojiro, with his arm out of his sleeve, comments that Yuya got them all worried for nothing. Shay notes that it's too early to be at ease.

Jack warns Yuya that he won't escape merely by avoiding the effect and he powerslides before declaring his Battle Phase, attacking Yuya directly with "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend's" "Molten Crimson Flare". "Red Dragon's" scars glow and it breathes a plume of flames at Yuya. Melissa cries that Jack is continuing his assault as Yuya reaches for an Action Card, but the attack hits before he can activate it and reduces his LP to 1000. Shrugging off the attack, Yuya activates the Action Spell "Double Draw", drawing two cards since he took over 2000 battle damage. Jack notes that Yuya managed to hang on, but drawing cards blindly won't help him. He Sets a card and ends his turn. Melissa observes that Jack isn't even letting the Director of Sector Security interfere in the Duel and states that you can feel Jack's passionate will in how he plays.

Watching the Duel in his office, Roget rises from his chair, slams his fists down and he roars, "SHUT UP!" at the oblivious Melissa. One of his staff contacts him and Roget angrily asks what now. She explains that they have an unexpected problem; Duelists that they believe to be Lancers have snuck into the base and are currently in combat with their Sector Security force. Roget is horrified and gasps, "What?!" Sora attacks a "Goyo Defender" with "Frightfur Chimera", while Moon Shadow attacks a "Goyo Predator" with "Twilight Ninja Shogun - Getsuga". Both monsters are destroyed and the two Stomptroopers that were controlling them fall to the ground in defeat, but dozens more are stepping forwards to take their place. Sora observes that the Stomptroopers don't even flinch at the sight of their members beaten in one turn and Moon explains that they have no emotions as he looks at the face of one of the Stomptroopers, musing that they have obviously been brainwashed by Roget. Sora realizes that in order to save Zuzu, and Moon finishes that they have to remove the brainwashing from Sector Security.

Yuya and Jack drive down a rise and onto a level road section as Melissa declares that Yuya is still holding on after taking huge damage. When Yuya doesn't make his move, Melissa asks what is wrong and reminds Yuya that it's his draw. Yuya and Jack enter a tunnel and Yuya thinks that he's made it this far trying his best to make his father's Dueling his own. He remembers Jack telling him to quit speaking with words that Yuya borrowed from others; if Yuya wanted to speak to Jack then he had to speak to him with his own words in his own Duel. Yuya thinks that he had believed that his father's Dueltaining was the greatest. Jack asks Yuya what's wrong; is he just going to remain playing through the dreams of his father? If Yuya has lost the will to actually fight, then he should surrender and leave; does he believe that he can Duel while he's daydreaming? Yuya grits his teeth and he replies that he won't ever surrender. He thinks that if he ran away he'd be denying his father's Dueling. For now, he just needs to Duel with all he's got. He declares his turn and he draws "Tuning Magician". Accelerating to catch up to Jack, Yuya Pendulum Summons using his already-Set Pendulum Scale; telling his monsters to revive from his Extra Deck; "Timebreaker Magician" and "Performapal Radish Horse". Then he Normal Summons "Tuning Magician", prompting Sam to say his and Jack's former card's name. Jack doesn't react as Yuya explains that when "Tuning Magician" is Normal Summoned he restores 400 LP to his opponent and he takes 400 damage himself. "Tuning Magician" cheerfully radiates harmonic waves from her staff, reducing Yuya to 600 LP and increasing Jack to 4400 LP. Yuya explains that when his opponent gains LP he can Special Summon "Performapal Life Swordsman" from his hand, who then gains ATK equal to the restored LP; rising to 400 ATK. Then he activates the effect of "Radish Horse", reducing the ATK of one of his opponent's Special Summoned monsters with 2500 or more ATK by that of "Radish Horse". "Radish Horse" fires its radish horn into the air and it explodes, reducing the ATK of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" to 2500 and then it also increases the ATK of a monster that Yuya controls by the same value. Yuya chooses to increase the ATK of "Life Swordsman", which rises to 900 ATK.

Yuya reiterates that Jack claimed that Yuya hadn't grown at all, not one bit since Jack defeated him in their exhibition match. Jack looks back as Yuya explains that with the card that Sam entrusted him, "Tuning Magician", he's come to understand this dimension's Summoning method. Jack tells Yuya to show him if that power that he has obtained has made him worthy to stand in front of the King. Yuya responds by tuning his Level 4 "Radish Horse" and Level 3 "Timebreaker Magician" with his Level 1 "Tuning Magician". He chants, "Hero's blade that sets forth unyielding light! Now, awaken with a flash! Synchro Summon! Appear now! Level 8! Enlightenment Paladin!" Sam observes that it's the Synchro Monster that Yuya used to teach him that there are no useless cards. Yuya activates the effect of "Enlightenment Paladin" to add the Spell Card: "Smile World" from his Graveyard to his hand. He holds up the "Smile World" card and he admits that he's thankful that Jack gave him the gift of Synchro Summoning, but Yuya will not abandon his father's Dueling. He Tributes "Life Swordsman" to increase the ATK of "Enlightenment Paladin" by its ATK until the End Phase. "Enlightenment Paladin" rises to 3400 ATK and Yuya attacks "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" with "Enlightenment Paladin". Jack activates a Trap Card, "Red Gem", preventing all "Red" monsters from being destroyed this turn. A red gem with internal flames appears and a barrier of fire blocks the strike of "Enlightenment Paladin". Melissa notes that Jack took damage as his LP falls to 3500, but he protected his symbol, "Red Dragon". She cheers that this is what you call a King's Duel. Yuya curses and he ends his turn, and the ATK of both "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" and "Enlightenment Paladin" return to normal. Sylvio notes that Jack is certainly a tough nut to crack and Gong observes that Jack defied both Yuya's father's Dueltaining and the Synchro Monster that was Summoned by Jack's own card and he asks if Yuya has another plan ready. Yuya admits to himself that "Tuning Magician" was something else that he borrowed and he wonders what his own Dueling is.

Jack scoffs that "Enlightenment Paladin" doesn't deserve its title and he states that Yuya has no other choice but to kneel in front of the King. He declares his turn and draws, and then he activates the effect of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" to destroy all Special Summoned monsters with 3000 or less ATK. "Red Dragon" gathers the flames around its cast again and releases the fire from its fist with "Ruthless Inferno". Yuya activates the Pendulum effect of "Performapal Bubblebowwow", destroying it to negate the destruction effect of "Red Dragon". "Bubblebowwow" explodes and releases pink bubbles that surround and protect "Enlightenment Paladin" and Melissa cheers that Yuya protected his own monster. Jack turns the Phoenix Whirlwind around and he declares that he'll battle instead, attacking "Enlightenment Paladin" with "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend's" "Molten Crimson Flare" attack. "Red Dragon" breathes a plume of flames and Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Performapal Gumgumouton"; preventing a monster he controls from being destroyed by battle once per turn. Green wool grows from "Gumgumouton" and protects "Enlightenment Paladin". Jack reminds Yuya that he will take the battle damage and Yuya's LP falls to 100. Melissa exclaims that Yuya's LP has finally hit 100. Jack turns back around and he Sets a card to end his turn. He notes that Yuya held on with Pendulum effects and states, "If only that served as a way for you to surpass yourself!"

Sora, Moon Shadow and "Getsuga" in the main control room.

In a control room at the Sector Security headquarters, the doors suddenly explode inward and Moon and "Getsuga" burst in and subdue the personal. Moon sheathes his katana and he tells them not to worry; Moon has not taken any of their lives. Sora enters the room on one of "Frightfur Chimera's" heads and he notes that this is definitely the main control system. Moon nods and he activates a Spell Card, "Art of Katon". In her cell, Zuzu hears the alarms and she wonders if the rioting Commons have even made it here. Roget screams at his staff and asks what they are doing, ordering them to hurry up and apprehend the intruders with as many personal as necessary. His staff protests that their command over multiple groups has been disrupted and they are all acting out of order. Roget realizes in shock that the Lancers went after the control system. In the streets, multiple Sector Security officers come to and wonder what they are doing. The Commons don't notice or care about the change and they yell that they'll crush them. Flying over a riot, Melissa notes that during Jack and Yuya's heated Duel, Commons have started to overwhelm Sector Security throughout New Domino City. Sector Security officers turn and flee from the riots, and Melissa tries to get the Commons to quit rioting and focus on the Duel.

The Lancers move out to stop the Commons rioting throughout the city.

Declan rises from his chair and notes that if this keeps up the Commons' riots will only escalate, before ordering the Lancers to follow him. Frank asks if Declan is going to take out the Commons and Tarren asks if this will include Crow and Shinji, while Amanda begs them not to. Shay follows Declan and Sylvio stops to reassure them that even if they are strong, the Lancers won't go as far as to suppress the Commons with brute force. Gong explains that they're going out to stop them from fighting and Riley determinedly explains that that's what they came here for; not just to end fighting in New Domino City, but across all dimensions. The kids are all surprised to see Riley's confidence and Riley looks up at Yuya on a screen, stating that even Yuya is trying his hardest to bring smiles to everyone. He smiles at the kids and he tells them that he wants them to watch this; their fight to bring peace back to this world. Chojiro observes that it seems like the Lancers might be New Domino City's saviors and he suggests to the four kids that they watch and see what lies in store for New Domino City and this world's future.

As they drive down the highway, Yuya remembers Jack stating that Yuya held on with Pendulum effects and lamenting that, "If only that served as a way for you to surpass yourself!" Yuya muses on the possibility of using Pendulum to surpass himself. Then he remembers his Duel with Skip Boyle, who told him that as the first one to open the door called Pendulum Summoning, Yuya needed to set an example for those who follow. Yuya realizes that that's right – he was the first person to perform a Pendulum Summon. His pendant swings as he declares that Pendulum Summoning isn't something that he borrowed from anyone else and his pendant glows beneath his Turbo suit as he declares that those are his own words. The pendant swings in his mind's eye and church bells toll as he beholds a cloaked figure and he gasps. He tells Jack that he sees his own words now and Jack tells him to shout those words out loudly; what Yuya's own Dueling is.

Yuya declares his turn and he draws, then he re-Sets the already Set Scale 1 "Performapal Gumgumouton" with the Scale 3 "Xiangke Magician", allowing him to simultaneously Summon Level 2 monsters. He chants, "Swing, pendulum of the soul! Draw an arc of light across the aether! Pendulum Summon! Appear now! Performapal Cheermole!" He tells the figure to wait; Yuya will call them right now.

He declares that he is tuning the Level 2 "Cheermole" with the Level 8 "Enlightenment Paladin". Jack is shocked, protesting that "Enlightenment Paladin" is not a Tuner monster. Yuya explains that there is a Synchro Monster that can be Synchro Summoned by Tributing a Pendulum Summoned Pendulum Monster and a Synchro Monster as he removes a card from his Extra Deck – a Synchro-Pendulum Monster, "Nirvana High Paladin". Jack is truly floored and Yuya chants, "From the peaceful depths of time, release your light throughout this world and revive! Synchro Summon! Appear now! Level 10! Sublime super paladin, Nirvana High Paladin!" "Nirvana High Paladin" appears with 3300 ATK and a circular rainbow appears behind it. Jack gasps and Melissa narrates that Yuya surprisingly not only Pendulum Summoned, but he also Synchro Summoned without a Tuner monster. Jack smiles and he comments that Yuya is truly interesting. Yuya attacks "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" with "Nirvana High Paladin". "Nirvana High Paladin" extends the tip of its greatsword and a twister of green and purple light extends past the blade as it attacks with "Truth Sukhavati".

Smoke extends down the highway and Jack falls to 3200 LP. He activates a Continuous Trap Card, "King Scarlet", which prevents the destruction of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" and the Special Summons itself as a Tuner monster. "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" swoops out of the smoke and a flaming sigil appears on the field. Melissa states that this is another surprise; Jack managed to negate the destruction and then Special Summon a Trap Card as a Tuner monster. Yuya ends his turn. Frank and Tarren gasp that Yuya and Jack are amazing and Amanda cries that they take a hit and send another one back. Chojiro states that it's a fierce clashing of their strongest weapons. The Topsiders comment that it's as expected of the finals, while the Commons cheer that they can't stop watching this.

Jack's Phoenix Whirlwind is covered in crimson light.

Jack remarks that it looks like Yuya's finally truly started speaking with his own words. He veers off into a blocked-off side lane and he declares that he shall answer Yuya with his own Dueling. He bursts through the barrier and Yuya, still on the main road, calls out to Jack. Jack declares his turn and he draws, then he Summons the Tuner monster "Mirror Resonator". Yuya observes that Jack has two Tuner monsters and Melissa asks what Jack will do, but then she sees that Jack's path ends in a sheer drop and she cries that there's nowhere left for the King to go. Yuya cries Jack's name again, but Jack is unworried; flames glow in his eyes as he declares that he will make his own path. He tells Yuya to listen to the roar of his soul and extends his Duel Runner control handles in a similar manner to how Crow did when flying on the Blackbird. Slats open on the side of his Duel Runner as Jack asks if Yuya can feel his life's energy. He tells him to bear witness; this is his Dueling and the Phoenix Whirlwind becomes cloaked in crimson light as Jack declares that this is the cry of a ruler who searches for a challenge without end. He roars off the edge and Melissa gasps that Jack is flying.

Jack declares that he is Double Tuning the Level 8 "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" with the Level 1 "Mirror Resonator" and "King Scarlet". The announcement shocks everyone, and Yuya is shocked at the idea of Double Tuning. The two Tuner monsters erupt into flaming rings and surround "Red Dragon" as Jack chants, "The King and devil now cross here! Call upon the soul of the Crimson Dragon, and raise the roar of creation itself!" As he chants, the Crimson Dragon flies behind "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" and a plume of fire rather than a line of light spears down the tuning rings. Jack chants, "Synchro Summon! Appear now! Level 10! Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend!", "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" appears with 3500 ATK as Jack lands on the other side of the gap. Melissa cries that Jack's symbol has been powered up by Double Tuning. The Commons cheer that Jack is amazing and the Topsiders gasp that this is the power of the King. Sam observes that Jack is still evolving and Chojiro theorizes that being the Duel King isn't the top for Jack. What comes off as arrogance on Jack's part is probably because there wasn't an opponent that could push him higher, and now Yuya has finally appeared. Jack accelerates ahead of Yuya and he swivels around to activate the effect of "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend"; once per turn it can destroy all other cards on the field. "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" slams its palm into the ground and unleashes a wave of fire with "Absolute Power Inferno" destroying "Nirvana High Paladin" and "Xiangke Magician" and "Gumgumouton" in the Pendulum Zones. Melissa is shocked that Jack could destroy everything, even Pendulum Cards.

"Nirvana High Paladin" is Set in the Pendulum Zone due to its effect.

Yuya activates the effect of "Nirvana High Paladin" since it was destroyed; allowing him to Set it in a Pendulum Zone. "Nirvana High Paladin" rises from a rainbow square to take its place in a Pendulum Zone.

"Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" attacks Yuya directly.

Jack declares his Battle Phase and attacks directly with "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend". "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" glows with flame and breathes a tide of flame as it attacks with "Molten Crimson Tide". Yuya quickly grabs an Action Card and he activates the Action Spell "Evasion" to negate the attack. But Jack activates another effect of "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" is it is attacking, negating the activation of a Spell Card and destroying it, then increasing its ATK by 500. "Tyrant" rises to 4000 ATK. Yuya activates the effect of "Acrobatic Magician" in response since a Spell Card was negated, Special Summoning it from his hand in Defense Position. Jack simply attacks "Acrobatic Magician" with "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" and destroys it. Yuya explains that the destroyed "Acrobatic Magician" will also be Set in a Pendulum Zone after being destroyed, and his Duel Disk spells out the rainbow colored "PENDULUM". Jack swivels back to the front and he asks if Yuya was even prepared for that much. He Sets a card and he ends his turn.

Jack explains to Yuya that Dueling is a conversation with the opponent.

Yuya races up beside Jack and he freely admits that he didn't plan for it at all; he only did all that he was capable of. Jack smiles and states that in that case it's even more interesting; Yuya has just now started to communicate his own will. "My own will?" Yuya asks. Jack states that that's right, and he explains that Dueling is a conversation with the opponent. The words Yuya uses there can be ones learned from someone else, a statement that causes Yuya to gasp. Jack stresses the point that what's important is that Yuya use those properly to convey his own will to his opponent. That is the true meaning of a Duel. Yuya muses on using the words of others to convey his own will, and he admits to himself that the first person who taught him the words that he uses in Dueling was his father. But he didn't just learn from his father, Principal Boyle, his mother, Gong, Zuzu, from everyone Yuya has fought thus far. Then he gasps as he remembers Jack stating that the true King must always carry the feelings of those who were defeated with him and Yuya realizes that whether he lost or won Dueling has been what made him who he is. The Dueling that he's had up until now isn't something that he's made alone.

Gong and Sylvio block the Commons' path.

As Gong and Sylvio block off a mob of Commons from Sector Security officers with "Superheavy Samurai Big Benkei", "Superheavy Samurai Trumpeter", "Abyss Actor - Funky Comedian", "Abyss Actor - Leading Lady" and "Abyss Actor - Sassy Rookie", Yuya thinks that everyone was there. Shay swoops in from "Raidraptor - Fiend Eagle" to drop in between Crow and Shinji, Damon, and Tony. Yuya thinks that it was because everyone was there that he was able to make it this far as Sora and Moon open the door to Zuzu's cell. Zuzu smiles happily as Yuya thinks that even though he was the first to Pendulum Summon, he wouldn't have made it this far on his power alone. Meanwhile, Declan and Riley stand outside the Sector Security Headquarters.

Yuya tells Jack that he truly gets what a Dueling that isn't borrowed or conceited is now. He declares his turn and he draws "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon". He explains that since he already has the Scale 2 "Acrobatic Magician" and the Scale 8 "Nirvana High Paladin" in his Pendulum Zones he is allowed to simultaneously Summon monsters from Levels 3 to 7. He chants, "Swing, pendulum of the soul! Draw an arc of light across the ether! Pendulum Summon! Appear now, my monsters!" Five streaks of light emerge from the portal and swirl over Yuya before colliding and descending in a twister of light, revealing "Performapal Gumgumouton", "Performapal Bubblebowwow", "Performapal Radish Horse", "Timebreaker Magician" and "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon", all in Attack Position. Jack and Melissa are shocked that Yuya could simultaneously Summon five monsters and Chojiro and the kids cheer the move. The Topsiders and the Commons are awestruck and Yuya declares that he's fighting alongside everyone.

Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Jack Atlas[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Yuya Sakaki has 4000 LP and controls "Timebreaker Magician" (2300/0) and "Performapal Radish Horse" (0/2000), both in Attack Position, as well as "Performapal Gumgumouton" (Right Pendulum Scale.png 1) and "Performapal Bubblebowwow" (Left Pendulum Scale.png 5) in his Pendulum Zones. Jack Atlas has 4000 LP and controls "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend" (3000/2500) in Attack Position. The 5 Duel Chasers each have 4000 LP and each control 3 copies of "Goyo Emperor" (2800/2500 each), all in Attack Position.

Turn 4: Jack
Jack just activated the effect of "Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend", letting him destroy all other Special Summoned monsters on the field with ATK less than or equal to its own and inflict damage to his opponents equal to the number of destroyed monsters times 500. Fifteen "Goyo Emperors", "Performapal Radish Horse", and "Timebreaker Magician" are destroyed, inflicting 8500 damage to all opponents (Duel Chasers x5: 4000 → 0 LP). Yuya finds and activates the Action Card "Acceleration", reducing the effect damage to 0. "Scarlight" attacks directly. Yuya finds an Action Card (Yuya: 4000 → 1000 LP). Yuya activates the Action Card "Double Draw", allowing him to draw two cards since he took more than 2000 damage. Jack Sets a card.

Turn 5: Yuya
Yuya draws "Tuning Magician". Yuya Pendulum Summons "Timebreaker Magician" (1400/0) and "Radish Horse" (500/2000) from his Extra Deck in Attack Position. He Normal Summons "Tuning Magician" (0/0). The effect of "Tuning Magician" activates, increasing Jack's LP by 400 and inflicting 400 damage to Yuya (Jack: 4000 → 4400 LP, Yuya 1000 → 600 LP). As Jack's LP increased, Yuya Special Summons "Performapal Life Swordsman" (0/0) in Attack Position via its own effect. It gains ATK equal to the LP Jack gained via its own effect (0 → 400). Yuya then activates the effect of "Radish Horse", which lets him decrease the ATK of a monster with 2500 or more ATK by 500 and increase the ATK of another by the same amount until the End Phase. He targets "Scarlight" and "Life Swordsman" ("Scarlight": 3000 → 2500, "Life Swordsman": 400 → 900). Yuya tunes the Level 4 "Radish Horse" and Level 3 "Timebreaker Magician" with the Level 1 Tuner monster "Tuning Magician" to Synchro Summon "Enlightenment Paladin" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. The effect of "Enlightenment Paladin" activates as it was Synchro Summoned using a "Magician" monster, letting Yuya add a Spell Card from his Graveyard to his hand. Yuya adds "Smile World" from his Graveyard. Yuya activates the other effect of "Life Swordsman", Tributing it to increase the ATK of a monster he controls equal to the ATK of "Life Swordsman" until the End Phase. He targets "Enlightenment Paladin" (2500 → 3400). "Enlightenment Paladin" attacks "Scarlight", but Jack activates his face-down "Red Gem", preventing "Red" monsters from being destroyed this turn (Jack: 4400 → 3500 LP).

Turn 6: Jack
Jack activates the effect of "Scarlight", letting him destroy all other Special Summoned monsters on the field with ATK less than or equal to its own and inflict damage to his opponent equal to the number of destroyed monsters times 500. Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Performapal Bubblebowwow", letting him destroy it to prevent the destruction of a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck besides a Pendulum Monster. "Scarlight" attacks "Enlightenment Paladin", but Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Performapal Gumgumouton" to prevent the destruction of a monster by battle (Yuya: 600 → 100 LP). Jack Sets a card.

Turn 7: Yuya
Yuya draws "Performapal Cheermole". Yuya activates "Xiangke Magician" (Left Pendulum Scale.png 3) in his left Pendulum Zone. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Cheermole" (600/1000). He then Tributes the Pendulum Summoned "Cheermole" and "Enlightenment Paladin" to Synchro Summon "Nirvana High Paladin" (3300/2500) via its own effect in Attack Position. "Nirvana High" attacks "Scarlight", but Jack activates his face-down "King Scarlet", preventing the destruction of "Scarlight" and Special Summoning "King Scarlet" (0/0) as a monster in Defense Position (Jack: 3500 → 3200 LP).

Turn 8: Jack
Jack Normal Summons "Mirror Resonator" (0/0). Jack Double Tunes the Level 8 "Scarlight" with the Level 1 Tuner monster "King Scarlet" and the Level 1 Tuner monster "Mirror Resonator" to Synchro Summon "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" (3500/3000) in Attack Position. Jack activates its effect, destroying all other cards on the field. "Nirvana High Paladin", "Gumgumouton" and "Xiangke" are destroyed. The effect of "Nirvana High Paladin" activates, placing itself (Left Pendulum Scale.png 8) in Yuya's left Pendulum Zone since it was destroyed. "Tyrant" attacks directly, but Yuya finds and subsequently activates the Action Card "Evasion" to negate the attack. Jack activates the other effect of "Tyrant" to negate a Spell or Trap Card that was activated when it was attacking and destroy it, then gain 500 ATK (3500 → 4000). As the effect of a Spell Card was negated, Yuya Special Summons "Acrobatic Magician" (800/2300) from his hand in Defense Position. A replay occurs and "Tyrant" attacks and destroys "Acrobatic Magician". The effect of "Acrobatic Magician" activates as it was destroyed, allowing Yuya to place it (Right Pendulum Scale.png 2) in his right Pendulum Zone. Jack Sets a card.

Turn 9: Yuya
Yuya draws "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon". Yuya Pendulum Summons "Bubblebowwow" (2300/1000), "Radish Horse" (500/2000), "Gumgumouton" (900/2400), and "Timebreaker" (1400/0) from his Extra Deck, and "Odd-Eyes" (2500/2000) from his hand, all in Attack Position.

Duel continues in the next episode.
