"Galian's Dig" is the twenty-ninth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on December 19, 2020 and will air in Australia on August 22, 2022.

Rayne and Rino cross the mountains to join the Training Camp, but they stop when they heard a strange engine noise. The source is a boy riding on a blue cavalry, Galian Townsend from Goha #6 Elementary! Hearing him hint that he might be sabotaging the training camp, Rayne challenges Galian to a Duel!

Summary[edit]

The Rush Duel Training Camp is surrounded by a massive trench.

As Yuga, Luke and Romin doze in their bunk beds, Gavin has woken early and gone outside on the third morning of the Rush Duel Training Camp, stretching and thinking that it's a wonderful start to the day, only to find the cabin has been surrounded by an enormous trench and he can only scream "What is this?!"

After getting dressed, the kids come out to examine the trench, Romin noting that it wasn't like this when Saburamen and his friends left last night, while Luke cries that there's no way across and Yuga notes that they need a rescue as Kaizo pops up behind him. Gavin tries to call Seatbastian, who is in the administrative building with the manager, but has no signal since they're in the mountains. Romin and Luke panic, asking what they should do, and Yuga peeks down the trench, wondering how deep it is before looking at Kaizo, wrapping rubber bands and rocks around the Drone, and dropping him into the chasm as he angrily asks what Yuga is doing, much to the shock of his friends. They listen for the sound of Kaizo hitting the bottom, and Gavin nervously comments that it's way too deep before Kaizo comes rocketing out past them and charges at Yuga, telling him not to treat people like pebbles.

Romin isn't happy that Luke's appetite has got them in trouble again.

The kids retreat inside, Yuga's hair still smoldering as Gavin notes that they seem to be the only ones left at the cabin, and Romin's phone isn't working either. Luke then dramatically declares that he has news even worse than the sheer cliff face outside; the fridge is completely empty and there's no food in the kitchen at all. He angrily asks who did this, but Gavin recalls Luke being surrounded by a massive pile of dirty dishes the previous night as he lectured them that they would start Rush training the next day to win the upcoming Rush Duel Tournament and telling Seatbastian and the manager not to get in their way, as they would call when they wanted food. But Luke had eaten everything in the building, so Seatbastian and the manager retreated to the administrative building. Romin is absolutely furious that Luke's appetite has got them in trouble again. His hair blown back by Romin's fury, Luke notes that they'll never be able to eat again at this rate, though Gavin claims he's exaggerating and Kaizo snidely comments that this is what they get for making Luke the Rush Duel Club president. As he gloats that he doesn't need to worry since he doesn't eat, Yuga hooks him down with an umbrella, telling him to fly over and get help from Seatbastian, though Kaizo doesn't want to lower his head to that "stupid massage chair". But all it takes for him to agree is a drawn out "Pretty please?" from Romin, and soon he's rocketing off into the sky. Yuga wonders if he's going to be okay, and Gavin remembers that Rayne and Rino were supposed to meet them here once all the Student Council work was finished, much to Luke and Romin's joy, and Gavin agrees that at a time like this they would surely be able to do something.

Rayne denies being interested in Yuga.

Sure enough Rayne and Rino are sprinting through the forest, Rino commenting on the notion that Gavin would leave the Student Council work to them, though Rayne is concerned that Gavin left it to them to attend the Rush Duel Training Camp despite the honor. Rino points out that Gavin has become more lively since he started Rush Dueling, all thanks to Yuga and his friends. Rayne agrees that he's right, but can't accept that it's due to Yuga, claiming that it would be good if he stopped being such a weird influence on Gavin. She can't understand him at all; he breaks school rules and does weird things and always talks about Rush Duels so loudly that she can hear him from afar. Rino grins, commenting that it sounds like Rayne is more than interested in Yuga herself, much to his sister's shock, and she protests that Yuga sleeps in his classes, it's surprising how bright his eyes light up in recess, he looks to the sky even when he's down, prefers sweet omelets to savory ones, she wouldn't be interested in a guy like that at all. Rino grins that Rayne's been observing Yuga, and she frantically denies it, it's not like she has an observation diary of him.

Three mysterious students are excavating in a pit.

But then Rino hears something and holds up his arm to stop his sister. They quickly shoot over to some bushes overlooking a large pit, where a boy in green equestrian clothing and a yellow helmet is scanning the area with an orange device, declaring that there's a strong response to a vein of ore here. A stocky boy in a blue equestrian outfit leaps out of a blue digger, commenting that he knew this would be a good battleground for digging and filling and he orders them to commence excavation immediately, as they'll definitely fulfill the wish of the Great One. Rayne repeats the term as the stocky boy gets back into his digger, and one of the other boys asks if this is really all right, what if the Goha #7 Elementary students see them? The stocky boy grins and tells him not to worry, as he's dealt with the training camp already, and Rayne wonders if something happened to Yuga's group. Rino comments that he's heard things about the heavy machinery here, though Rayne thinks Rino has heard things about her and Yuga, and as Rino declares that this must be Goha #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, Rayne thinks he's saying that she and Yuga are in love, and as she blushes furiously she puts her hand on a rock and dislodges it, falling into the pit and managing to land safely. Rino curses and leaps in with her, and the two green-jacketed students ask who they are and why they're here. The stocky boy drives up between his fellow students in his digger, asking what younguns like them are doing here.

Seatbastian and Kaizo butt heads.

At the administrative building, Seatbastian is busy giving the manager a massage, claiming that as the manager, he is the god of the training camp; he is one worthy to be massaged by Seatbastian. But then Kaizo flies in, snidely commenting that Seatbastian's saying stuff like that, but he really just wanted to massage someone. Seatbastian isn't happy at the accusation, especially when Kaizo claims that "his sweetheart" Romin tasked him with an actual responsibility and he tells the "chatterchair" to hurry up and come with him. Seatbastian asks who this voice can be coming from, surely not this little bug flying in front of him? Kaizo decides that's enough; he's always wanted to settle the score with Seatbastian and he tells him to step outside.

Meanwhile Luke is already starving with blue bags under his eyes, apologizing for his actions, while Yuga and Romin aren't much better. Only Gavin is somewhat composed, as he notes that breakfast has passed, but it's almost time for lunch. Romin angrily pounds the table, asking what Kaizo is doing.

Back at the pit, Rayne and Rino face off with the Heavy Cavalry club members, and the stocky boy asks them what they saw. Rayne claims they saw nothing, so he asks them what they heard instead, which Rino also claims to have been nothing. The stocky boy asks what they are doing here, and Rino explains that they were on their way to the training camp, causing the boy to realize that they're from #7 Elementary, and he throws off his helmet, telling them that they can pass if they can defeat him, the sixth-grade Chief of Staff of Goha #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club; Galian Townsend, by stepping over his dead body. Rayne and Rino are shocked that the boy is only a sixth grader, having mistaken him for an advisor. Galian claims that if they are defeated here, they will have to work for the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club for the rest of their lives. Rayne is incensed that he expects them to agree to such terms, and Galian admits that it's natural that greenhorns from #7 Elementary wouldn't have the guts to challenge them, much to Rino's anger, but Rayne throws out her arm to stop him. Galian adds that they're also from the same elementary school as Yuga Ohdo, the inventor of Rush Duels, and Rayne shakes in anger, noting that Galian claimed to have dealt with the training camp, and Galian suggests that she defeat him first and then go check, if they think they can win that is. Rayne snaps that she would dishonor the Sogetsu-Style Shadow Flower Oniwaban Unit if she stayed silent after hearing that, tossing her bag aside and taking out her Duel Disk. She tosses her Duel Disk into the air and allows it to land on her wrist, and calls Rino's name. Rino leaps into the and tosses aside his school clothes to reveal his kuroda clothing, impressing Galian. Declaring that he will fight poison with poison, Galian leaps onto his digger, which opens its bucket to reveal Solid Vision projectors and a slot on the arm projects a Duel Disk in front of him. Rayne readies her Deck, warning Galian to beware the fangs of the sweet flower, while Galian declares that his hands are not for grasping victory, but digging it up, and they both declare "Rush Duel!" inserting their Decks into their Duel Disks and transforming them into Rush mode, then projecting the green holographic dome above them as Rino kneels at the ready with Rayne's hand.

Rayne Sets three monsters.

Rayne declares that from wartime to now, the Oniwaban have ever supported Sogetsu-style from the shadows. Theirs is a secret technique; the Dance of the Shadow Flower Unit, and she declares that it's time to let the flowers bloom before drawing. She examines her hand, held by Rino, which contains two copies of "Kurobana the Shadow Flower Wolf", "Lindo the Shadow Flower Warrior", "Shadow Flower Stance", and "Shadow Flower Spore", and she Sets three monsters. Galian grins as Rino reflects that Setting multiple monsters, then holding one's breath to wait for the chance to win is how Rayne Duels, and Rayne Sets the remaining two cards in her hand, ending her turn.

Galian comments on the notion that a lady like Rayne would point a card like a gun at a battle-worn veteran like him, and he comments that times have changed, while Rino sweatdrops as he points out that Galian is an elementary schooler. Galian ferociously declares his turn and draws "Drilling Mandrill", adding it to his hand, which also contains two copies of "Shovel Crusher" and two copies of "Bull Breaker". He Summons the two "Shovel Crushers", which are projected from the projectors in his digger's bucket, then he Tributes them to Tribute Summon, chanting "An endangered species given the name of drill by the goddess of civil engineering! The primate of drills. A drill and a man! Now rev up! Drilling Mandrill!" He also Summons two "Bull Breakers", and Rino observes that Galian has already Summoned three Machine monsters, as expected of a student of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, but Galian tells him not to be too scared just yet. He activates the effect of "Drilling Mandrill", explaining that he can change a face-down Defense Position monster into face-up Attack Position for every Machine monster he controls, much to the twins' shock. Galian declares "Middle-Aged Table Reverse", and "Drilling Mandrill" digs its arms into the ground and throws up a massive cloud of rocks and dirt, unearthing Rayne's three monsters. Galian muses that Rayne's revealed monsters are "Kurobana the Shadow Flower Wolf" and "Lindo the Shadow Flower Warrior" and he asks her how it feels for him to dig up the monsters she tried to hide, but Rayne just smiles. Commenting on her toughness, Galian explains that the effect of "Mandrill" will also reduce the ATK of her uncovered monsters to zero, and Rayne gasps as "Mandrill" blasts steam across the field, sapping her monsters' ATK. Rino cries that Rayne's monsters have been lain bare, and Galian attacks both "Kurobana" with his two "Bull Breakers", who toss them into the air and destroy them, reducing Rayne to 2800 LP, then to 1600 LP. Rino gasps at what will happen if this continues, and Galian declares that an old soldier like him will use all the hydraulics to dig up baby rabbits like them, attacking "Lindo" with "Drilling Mandrill".

Galian's machines are all switched into Defense Position.

But Rayne returns two Plant monsters from her Graveyard to the bottom of her Deck to activate the Trap Card "Shadow Flower Stance", changing all monsters Galian controls to Defense Position. Galian can only gasp in shock as his machines are upended, and Rino praises his sister for dealing with the machinery so easily. Galian laughs that Rayne managed to hang on by the skin of her teeth, and he ends his turn, causing the ATK of "Lindo" to return to normal. Rayne thinks that Galian is like an old veteran, but her heart beats with Gavin, with #7 Elementary, and then she thinks of Yuga...

She declares her turn and draws five cards; "Powerful Pierce!!", "Etraynze the Shadow Flower Ninja", "Yuri the Shadow Flower Fiend", and another "Shadow Flower Spore" and "Kurobana the Shadow Flower Wolf". She Summons "Yuri the Shadow Flower Fiend" and then activates its effect, sending the top cards of each of their Decks to the Graveyard; Rayne sends another "Etraynze", while Galian sends "Siesta Hold" to the Graveyard. Then Rayne Tributes "Yuri" and "Lindo", chanting "Behind flowers that bloom in the light are buds that bloom in the darkness. Even as they are scattered and cut, let them dance a dance of shadows! Tribute Summon! Come forth, Etraynze the Shadow Flower Ninja!" "Etraynze" appears with 2300 ATK, and Galian grins as Rayne activates her Set Spell Card "Shadow Flower Spore", Special Summoning "Lindo" from her Graveyard. Then Rayne sends a Plant monster ("Kurobana") from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the "Mirror Technique: Replica Flower Fang Image" effect of "Etraynze", causing "Etraynze" to split in two. Rayne declares that this is the Sogetsu-style Oniwaban's Clone Jutsu, and Rino notes that by using "Yuri" before Summoning "Etraynze", Rayne was able to Summon two of her aces, and this is the ability of the Shadow Flower Unit to have everyone appear at once. But Galian asks if she intends to defeat him with that, and Rino realizes that he's right; all of Galian's monsters are still in Defense Position and Rayne's attacks won't damage him at all. But then they grin, asking Galian if he thought that would surprise them, much to Galian's shock, and Rayne activates "Powerful Pierce!!" by sending the other "Shadow Flower Spore" from her hand to the Graveyard, granting its effect to her two "Etraynzes". Then she orders "Lindo" to attack a "Bull Breaker", destroying it with ease, before attacking the other "Bull Breaker" with her first "Etraynze", declaring its "Wild Petal Dance: Blooming of One Hundred Flowers" attack. "Etraynze" blasts a storm of petals at the second "Bull Breaker", destroying it and inflicting piercing damage due to "Powerful Pierce!!" The petals then slam into Galian, reducing his LP to 2500, and Rayne declares that her other "Etraynze" will make "Drilling Mandrill" burst into a hundred flowers, destroying it and buffeting Galian with the petals again, reducing him to 2200 LP as he leans against his Duel Disk. His subordinates gasp his name, but Galian insists that it's nothing, and Rino congratulates Rayne even though she wasn't able to deal the finishing blow. Rayne ends her turn, and the monsters Special Summoned by the effects of "Spore" and "Etraynze" return to the bottom of her Deck.

Galian vows to annihilate Rush Dueling.

Galian vows that even though he has been heavily injured he will still hold his head high, and as a reward he will tell them something. Goha #6 Elementary is Goha City's most prestigious school that only children with a high social standing or a distinguished lineage can enter, and the mission of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club that only select members of the student body can join is to unearth the truth of the great traditions of Dueling, as well as to completely annihilate the Rush Duels that are an utter blasphemy on the history of Dueling. Rayne and Rino gasp in shock, and Galian and his fellow club members snap to attention, declaring that everything is for the sake of fulfilling the wish of their exalted lady. Rayne repeats his words, remembering Galian mentioning the "Great One" earlier, and she asks if they were trying to dig up something needed to fulfill that wish, but Galian grins, commenting that was a good guess. Rayne and Rino gasp in surprise as Galian kickstarts his digger and declares that old soldiers never die, they just draw.

"Drilling Mandrill" attacks.

He's drawn "Brutal Retribution", another "Shovel Crusher", "Darkness Approaches", "Heavy Cavalry Tactics", and another "Bull Breaker", and he Summons the "Bull Breaker", then sends it to the Graveyard as it is a Machine monster to activate the Spell Card "Heavy Cavalry Tactics", allowing him to Special Summon "Drilling Mandrill" from his Graveyard. Rayne isn't happy that Galian Summoned "Mandrill" again, but Rino reassures her that it's fine, as "Etraynze" has the higher ATK. Galian calls them naïve greenhorns that are so green they've become as yellow as newborn chicks, much to the twins' shock, and he sends "Brutal Retribution" and "Shovel Crusher" from his hand to the Graveyard to activate the Spell Card "Darkness Approaches", changing "Etraynze" to face-down Defense Position. The twins cry "No!" in horror as Galian activates the effect of "Mandrill", which Rino recalls flips a face-down Defense Position monster into Attack Position, then reduces its ATK to zero. "Etraynze" is flipped face-up, her ATK falling as the twins flounder and Galian declares that this is a true Heavy Cavalry battle, standing on his digger's bucket as it elevates him into the air and he orders "Mandrill" to mine "Etraynze", repeatedly chanting "Drilling, drilling!" as "Drilling Mandrill" transforms into its vehicle form and he orders it to move with horsepower like the superhuman strength of a primate and dig until it reaches the other side of the earth, as it attacks with "Dig Diesel Four-Stroke", destroying "Etraynze" and reducing Rayne's LP to zero.

Rayne looks downcast, and Galian approaches them on his digger, praising her for making him Duel seriously and leaping off the bucket to stand in front of them, telling them that they deserve a Goha Hexagonal Medal. Rayne doesn't respond, and Galian smiles and welcomes them to Goha #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, much to the twins' shock. Galian chuckles merrily, and the twins take each other's hand.

The Heavy Cavalry Duel Club rescue the trapped Rush Duel Club.
The kids aren't happy that Kaizo didn't save them...

Back at the cabin, the sun sets as Luke weakly tries to draw food as the starving kids sit at the table. But then they see four construction vehicles approaching them, and Gavin asks if it's #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, and they sigh in relief that they're saved as the machines lay down logs to make a bridge. Finally rescued from the cabin, they eagerly wolf down food at the picnic table as Galian and his fellow club members look on, Galian laughing that they'd have been stuck if he hadn't stopped by and declaring that those who love Dueling should help one another. Luke comments that Diggs and his club all said they were unpleasant people, but that's really not the case. Gavin gets to his feet and he asks Galian if he saw a pair of twins; a boy and a girl? Galian claims that he didn't see them at all, turning away as he smiles wickedly. Meanwhile, Kaizo and Seatbastian are lying crumpled and battered on the ground, Kaizo admitting that exchanging blows has made him realize that Seatbastian is a surprisingly good guy, and Seatbastian admits that Kaizo has also suffered a lot, but Kaizo tells him to stop, and they turn and look at the sunset, the manager coming out and patting them as they all laugh, and then Kaizo stops in shock as he realizes that a very angry Romin, Gavin, Luke and Yuga are behind him, and Yuga has his tools out.

Featured Duel: Rayne vs Galian Townsend[edit]

The Duel is conducted as a Rush Duel.

Turn 1: Rayne
Rayne's hand contains two copies of "Kurobana the Shadow Flower Wolf", "Lindo the Shadow Flower Warrior", "Shadow Flower Stance", and "Shadow Flower Spore". Rayne Sets three monsters and two cards.

Turn 2: Galian
Galian's hand contains two copies of "Shovel Crusher" and two copies of "Bull Breaker". Galian draws "Drilling Mandrill". Galian Normal Summons two copies of "Shovel Crusher" (900/1200). Galian Tributes both "Shovel Crusher" to Tribute Summon "Drilling Mandrill" (1700/2000). Galian Normal Summons two copies of "Bull Breaker" (1200/800). As "Drilling Mandrill" was Normal or Special Summoned this turn, Galian activates its effect, choosing face-down Defense Position monsters Rayne controls, up to the number of Machine Type monsters he controls, changing them to Attack Position, and changing their original ATK to 0 until the end of this turn. Galian controls three Machine monsters, so he changes Rayne's two Set "Kurobana" (800/1300 → 0/1300) and "Lindo" (1300/1400 → 0/1400) to Attack Position. The two "Bull Breaker" attack and destroy the two "Kurobana" (Rayne: 4000 → 2800 → 1600). "Drilling Mandrill" attacks "Lindo", but as a Plant Type monster Rayne controls was targeted for an attack, she activates her Set Trap "Shadow Flower Stance", placing two Plant Type monsters from her Graveyard on the bottom of her Deck to change all Attack Position monsters Galian controls to face-up Defense Position. She places her two "Kurobana" on the bottom of the Deck and changes "Drilling Mandrill" and the two "Bull Breaker" to Defense Position.

Turn 3: Rayne
Rayne draws "Powerful Pierce!!", "Etraynze the Shadow Flower Ninja", "Yuri the Shadow Flower Fiend", "Shadow Flower Spore", and "Kurobana the Shadow Flower Wolf". Rayne Normal Summons "Yuri the Shadow Flower Fiend" (500/500). As she controls a Plant Type Normal Monster, Rayne activates the effect of "Yuri", sending the top card of both player's Decks to the Graveyard. Rayne sends another "Etraynze" to the Graveyard and Galian sends "Siesta Hold". Rayne Tributes "Yuri" and "Lindo" to Tribute Summon "Etraynze the Shadow Flower Ninja" (2300/1000). Rayne activates her Set Spell "Shadow Flower Spore", sending the top card of her Deck to the Graveyard to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Plant Type monster from her Graveyard, but that monster will be placed on the bottom of her Deck during the End Phase. She sends "Etraynze" to the Graveyard and Special Summons "Lindo" (1300/1400). Rayne activates the effect of "Etraynze", sending a Plant Type monster from her hand to the Graveyard to Special Summon another "Etraynze" from her Graveyard, but that monster will be placed on the bottom of her Deck during the End Phase, also the "Etraynze" that activated its effect cannot attack directly this turn. Rayne sends "Kurobana" to the Graveyard and Special Summons "Etraynze" (2300/1000). Rayne activates the Spell "Powerful Pierce!!", sending a card from her hand to the Graveyard to choose two monsters she controls with the same Level to grant them the ability to inflict piercing battle damage this turn. She sends "Shadow Flower Spore" to the Graveyard and chooses her two "Etraynze". "Lindo" attacks and destroys a "Bull Breaker". The first "Etraynze" attacks and destroys the other "Bull Breaker" (Galian: 4000 → 2500 LP). The other "Etraynze" attacks and destroys "Drilling Mandrill" (Galian: 2500 → 2200 LP). During the End Phase, "Lindo" and the Special Summoned "Etraynze" are returned to the bottom of Rayne's Deck.

Turn 4: Galian
Galian draws "Brutal Retribution", "Shovel Crusher", "Darkness Approaches", "Heavy Cavalry Tactics", and "Bull Breaker". Galian Normal Summons "Bull Breaker" (1200/800). Galian activates the Spell "Heavy Cavalry Tactics", sending an EARTH Machine Type monster he controls to the Graveyard to Special Summon an EARTH Machine TYpe monster from his Graveyard, but other monsters he controls cannot declare an attack this turn. He sends "Bull Breaker" to the Graveyard and Special Summons "Drilling Mandrill" (1700/2000). Galian activates the Spell "Darkness Approaches", sending two cards from his hand to the Graveyard to change a face-up monster on the field to face-down Defense Position. He sends "Brutal Retribution" and "Shovel Crusher" to the Graveyard and changes "Etraynze" to face-down Defense Position. As "Drilling Mandrill" was Normal or Special Summoned this turn, Galian activates its effect, choosing face-down Defense Position monsters Rayne controls up to the number of Machine Type monsters he controls and changing them to face-up Attack Position, then changing their original ATK to zero until the end of the turn. Galian controls one Machine Type monster, so he changes Rayne's Set "Etraynze" (2300/1000 → 0/1000) to Attack Position. "Drilling Mandrill" attacks and destroys "Etraynze" (Rayne: 1600 → 0 LP).
