Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Reiji Akaba
Duel continues from the previous Scale.
Turn 8: Yuya
Yuya activates the effect of "Pendulum Match", Special Summoning one random Pendulum Monster from his Extra Deck. He Special Summons "Dark Anthelion Dragon" (3000/2500). The second effect of "Pendulum Match" allows Reiji to Special Summon a Pendulum Monster from his Deck with a Pendulum Scale equal to that of "Anthelion". Reiji Special Summons "D/D/D/D Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox" (3000/3000). As it was Special Summoned, Reiji activates the effect of "Zero Paradox" destroying all other cards on the field. The final effect of "Pendulum Match" activates, as the Battle Phase has ended, destroying all monsters Special Summoned by its effect.
Yuya activates the Action Spell "The Show Must Go On", allowing him to take 2 of Reiji's Action Cards and add them to his hand. He then activates the Action Spell "Big Dominoes", allowing him to inflict 500 points of damage to Reiji for each card they control and in their hands. As they have a total of 7 cards between them, Reiji would take 3500 damage. Reiji activates the Action Spell "Reverse Dominoes", allowing him to inflict the damage he would take to Yuya. Yuya then activates the Action Spell "Swingmelon", doubling the effect damage from an Action Card and inflicting it to his opponent. Reiji activates the Action Spell "Stop", negating the damage that would be inflicted by an Action Spell. Yuya activates the Action Spell "Splash Seeds", inflicting 500 damage to Reiji for each Action Card used this turn. As 5 other Action Spells were activated this turn, Reiji takes 2500 damage (Reiji: 4000 → 1500).
Turn 9: Reiji
Yuya obtains this turn's Action Card. The effect of "EnterMate Turntrooper" activates, returning "God-Eyes Phantom Dragon" and "Divine Go-D/D/D Zero King Zero God Reiji" to the field. Reiji Normal Summons "D/D Destiny Surveyor" (0/???). Yuya activates the Continuous Trap Card "Trick Explanation", preventing monsters from being Tributed to activate the effects of other monsters. Reiji activates the effect of "Destiny Surveyor", equipping it to a Pendulum Monster and preventing him from taking damage from battles involving the equipped monster and its destruction by battle. He equips it to "Zero God Reiji".
"Zero God Reiji" attacks "God-Eyes". Yuya activates the second effect of "Trick Explanation", sending it to the Graveyard to destroy a Spell or Trap on the field. He destroys "Destiny Surveyor". The attack continues and "Zero God Reiji" is destroyed. Reiji activates the effect of "Destiny Surveyor" in his Graveyard, banishing it to reduce battle damage involving a "D/D" monster to 0, then destroying the monster that battled and inflicting damage to Yuya equal to half that monster's ATK. "God-Eyes" is destroyed. Yuya activates the Action Spell "Double Burst", inflicting the same damage he would take to Reiji. Reiji activates the effect of "D/D Zero Surveyor" in his hand as he would take effect damage that would reduce his LP to 0, discarding "Zero Surveyor" to reduce the damage he would take so that he is left with 100 LP. Both Yuya and Reiji take 1400 damage (Yuya: 1500 → 100, Reiji: 1500 → 100).
Duel continues in the next Scale.
