The Duel against Eve rages on, whilst taking heavy damage to his Life Points, Yuya and his three brothers pool their strength together in an all out assault against Eve and her powerful trio of monsters.
Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki/Yuto vs Eve
Duel continues from the previous Scale.
Turn 3: Yuya
Yuya has just taken over the Duel from Yuto and ended his turn, so the ATK of "Dark Anthelion Dragon" and "No. XX Infinity Dark Hope" return to their original values ("Dark Anthelion": 7000 → 3000, "Infinity Dark Hope": 2000 → 4000).
Turn 4: Eve
"Timelord Progenitor Vulgate" attacks "Dark Anthelion". The effect of "Vulgate" prevents it from being destroyed by battle and reduces the damage that Eve would take to zero. As "Vulgate" battled, Eve activates its effect, banishing all monsters Yuya controls until the end of the turn. "Phantasm Emperor Trilojig" attacks Yuya directly, but Yuya activates the effect of the "XYZ Wings" in his Graveyard. As it was removed from the field this turn, Yuya can halve any battle damage he takes (Yuya LP 2500 -> 500). "Infinity Dark Hope" attacks directly, but Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Enter-Mate Odd-Eyes Butler". As an opponents monster declared an attack, he can return an "Odd-Eyes" Pendulum Monster from his Graveyard to his Extra Deck to negate the attack and gain LP equal to the returned monster's ATK. He returns "Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon" to his Extra Deck (Yuya: 500 → 3000). During the End Phase, "Dark Anthelion" and "Enter-Mate Miss Director" return to the field.
Turn 5: Yuya
Yuya Pendulum Summons "Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon" from his Extra Deck (2500/2000). Yuya activates the effect of "Miss Director", Special Summoning one Level 1 monster from his Graveyard, and then using it and "Miss Director" as material for a Synchro Summon. He Special Summons "Smoke Mosquito", and then tunes the Level 6 Tuner monster "Miss Director" with the Level 1 "Smoke Mosquito" to Synchro Summon the Level 7 "Clearwing Fast Dragon". He activates the effect of "Clearwing", negating the effects of a monster Eve controls and reducing its ATK to 0. He targets "Trilojig" ("Trilojig: 4000 → 0 ATK).
"Clearwing" attacks "Trilojig", but Eve activates the effect of "Dark Hope", detaching an Overlay Unit to halve the battle damage she takes ("Infinity Dark Hope": ORU 2 → 1) (Eve: 6000 → 4750). As "Trilojig" was destroyed Eve activates the second effect of "Infinity Dark Hope", Special Summoning "Trilojig" from the GY. As a monster was Special Summoned from the GY, the effect of "Trilojig" activates, inflicting damage to Yuya equal to half the ATK of a monster Yuya controls. Eve selects "Anthelion" (Yuya LP 3000 → 1500). Eve activates the third effect of "Infinity Dark Hope", at the end of the turn, Eve will gain LP equal to the ATK of a Special Summoned monster, targeting "Trilojig".
As a monster he controls destroyed a monster by battle this turn, Yuya activates "Penetration Fusion", allowing him to Fusion Summon using at least one monster he controls that destroyed a monster by battle this turn. He fuses "Clearwing" and "Dark Anthelion" to Fusion Summon "Starving Venemy Dragon". He activates the effect of "Starving Venemy", negating the effects of an opponent's monster, gaining those effects, and inflicting 500 damage to Eve. He negates the effects of "Vulgate" (Eve: 4750 → 4250). "Starving Venemy" attacks "Vulgate", but Eve activates the effect of "Infinity Dark Hope", detaching an Overlay Unit ("Infinity Dark Hope": ORU 1 → 0) to halve the damage and Special Summon the destroyed monster from the GY (Eve: 4250 → 3000). As a monster was Special Summoned from the GY, the effect of "Trilojig" inflicts damage to Yuya equal to half the ATK of a monster he controls. Eve selects "Starving Venemy" (Yuya: 1500 → 250).
Yuya then activates the effect of "Starving Venemy" copied from "Vulgate", as it battled a monster, it can banish all monsters his opponent controls until the end of the turn. Yuya activates the second effect of "Penetration Fusion", Tributing a Fusion Summoned monster to increase the ATK of a Pendulum Monster he controls by 500. He Tributes "Starving Venemy" to increase the ATK of "Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon" (2500 → 3000). "Odd-Eyes" attacks directly.
Duel continues in the next Scale.
