After a grueling battle, Reiji reveals his true schemes, surprising Isaac with his intellect and concluding the battle in an outer space environment.

Featured Duel: Reiji Akaba vs Isaac[edit]

Duel continues from the previous Scale.

Turn 6: Isaac
Isaac Pendulum Summons "Mirror Imagine Catadioptricker 7" (0/0) and "Mirror Imagine Prism Coat 8" (0/2600). He activates the former's effect, adding the three "Additional Mirror Level 7" from his Graveyard to his hand, which he subsequently activates, Special Summoning two additional "Prism Coat 8" (0/2600 each). Isaac activates the effect of his three "Prism Coat 8"; each of them, when Tributed, increases the ATK of "Catadioptricker 7" by half the ATK of an opponent's monster - with Isaac choosing "D/D/D/D Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox", and grant "Catadioptricker 7" an additional effect. The first "Prism Coat 8" makes "Catadioptricker 7" unaffected by non-"Mirror Imagine" monsters' effects ("Catadioptricker 7": ATK 0 → 1500). The second one makes it unaffected by opponent's Spell Cards ("Catadioptricker 7": ATK 1500 → 3000). The third one makes it unaffected by opponent's Trap Cards ("Catadioptricker 7": ATK 3000 → 4500).

"Catadioptricker 7" attacks "Zero Paradox", but Reiji activates his face-down "Zero Gravitation", making him able to choose the targets for Isaac's attacks. Reiji tries to redirect the attack to his "D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell", but Isaac activates his face-down "Mirror World Break", banishing "Zero Maxwell". The attack continues towards "Zero Paradox", but Reiji activates its effect, making him able to use the effect of a card in Isaac's Pendulum Zone. He activates the effect of "Mirror Imagine Secondary 9", allowing him to Special Summon a "Mirror Imagine" monster from his Deck and making it the new attack target. The second effect of "Zero Gravitation" treats both player's Decks as a single Deck for the turn - making Reiji able to Special Summon "Mirror Imagine Reflector 1" from the united Decks and redirecting the attack to it.

Reiji activates the effect of "Reflector 1", Tributing it to negate the effects of "Catadioptricker 7" and decrease its ATK by 1000 ("Catadioptricker 7": ATK 4500 → 3500), as well as Special Summoning "Mirror Imagine Reflector 2" and redirecting the attack to it. The effect of "Reflector 2" also activates, with Reiji Tributing it to halve the ATK of "Catadioptricker 7" ("Catadioptricker 7": ATK 3500 → 1750), as well as Special Summoning "Mirror Imagine Reflector 3" and redirecting the attack to it. Finally, Reiji activates the effect of "Reflector 3", Tributing it to redirect the attack to his "Zero Paradox". Reiji also activates the effect of "Zero Paradox"; once, during a turn where a "D/D/D" monster left the field, the ATK of "Zero Paradox" can be doubled ("Zero Paradox": ATK 3000 → 6000). "Catadioptricker 7" attacks "Zero Paradox", getting itself destroyed (Isaac 4000 → 0).
