"Upstart Hunter" is the forty-fifth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on April 25, 2021.

Burning fights unfold in the Team Battle Royal! Yuga and co. keep steadily winning, but the three members of the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club appear before them. Hunt Goto challenges Yuga, saying that "he wants to borrow Yuga's heart", but he comes off as a completely different person than before...


A boy seeking Maximums is led to "Hunting Shopping".

As Sweets Kakoko chants "Goha Rush!" repeatedly several children express their excitement over the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal starting tomorrow as they watch footage from Yuga's second Rush Duel with Nail with "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" and "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord" clashing and they discuss the rumors that Maximum Monsters are finally available. A young boy in overalls is eager to get a Maximum of his own, and no sooner has he said so, a boy in a green dinosaur-print hoodie calls him over from an alleyway. The hooded boy takes him to meet with another boy in a dinosaur hoodie with glasses and a scar on his cheek, who gives the password "Excavating the Good Stuff" to a bust of a hippo head. To the boy's shock, the wall opens to reveal a third boy in a dinosaur hoodie with several cards on his table and gold bars beside it, who declares that this is "Hunting Shopping".

Luke stresses out over Team YugaNail with R passing his team in the rankings.

On the first day of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, Kakoko greets the entire world and explains the rules of the tournament again as Braun Honya is shown Dueling one of the Dueling Insects Club members. As the Newspaper Club ambush three Duelists for an interview, Kakoko explains that all participating teams have three people, and if a team comes across another team in the city, a Duel will begin in the Battle Royal. As Yosh's "Beast Gear King Convoy Liogon" destroys a "Nandes the Fire Awakener", Kakoko explains that the winning team gains seven points, while the losing team loses seven points, and if a team loses seven times (as Riku, Katsu and another girl's team has) they are eliminated from the tournament. The two teams with the most points by sundown the next day will advance to the finals, and the team with the most points on day one is Team Lukeking Lukekings. Romin still isn't happy about their team's name, taking out her frustration by having "Esperade the Smashing Superstar" destroy a "Rescue Magician", though Gavin ruefully admits that they have to accept it since they lost the Duel to name the team as his "Kimeruler the Dark Raider" destroys a "Scrubbing Santa Cloth". Luke naturally thinks it's a magnificent name and orders "Multistrike Dragon Dragias" to destroy a "Little D". But as Kakako notes, there's a team ferociously chasing after them; "Sevens Road Magician" destroys a "Dragon Knight of Darkness" as Kakoko explains that the team that was formerly the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club has since become Team YugaNail with R and are only seven points behind Luke's team. Yuga grins as Roa celebrates his victory and asks if his princesses enjoyed it; they respond with dozens of gifts they throw to the stage, including a pink card that catches Roa's eye, and he opens it and gasps in surprise. Nail meanwhile has just Maximum Summoned "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" and defeated his opponent as eager children applaud his Maximum, bringing the team to 154 points and above Team Lukeking Lukekings; much to Luke's distress, though Romin and Gavin note that it's expected of them. Kakoko wonders which of them will become the King of Rush Duels and leads everyone in a chant of "Goha Rush!" again.

Nail samples Rush Ramen for the first time.

At the Ramen Hut, Nail has just sampled Rush Ramen for the first time and he breathlessly declares that this is the birth of a new providence. Yuga is pleased that Nail likes it, though Roa teases Nail over liking ramen like this and suggesting that he might not have been eating well enough in the Garden of Curiosity. Seatbastian emerges from the kitchen, noting that Roa has recently been to this restaurant five days in a row and eaten nothing but ramen, much to Roa's embarrassment. Before he can say anything, Luke, Gavin and Romin come in, and though Gavin, Romin, Roa and Yuga are all happy to see one another, Luke immediately accuses Yuga of being a traitor for leaving him to form a team with Roa and Nail, and them topping his own team in rankings is just mean, why is Yuga so mean to him? Romin and Gavin sit down at another table, Romin pointing out that Luke was the one who left Yuga behind in the first place, while Gavin comments that Luke's unjustified resentment is almost refreshing. Luke protests that Nail is technically a Goha Enterprises employee, so why is he allowed to participate? Nail stops inhaling ramen to point out that he's still an elementary schooler, so it's fine, and Luke initially agrees until he remembers Nail's Maximum. The mention of a Maximum prompts the Ramen Hut Owner to tell them one Rush Ramen: Pork Maximum is coming up, reminding Luke in turn that Maximums are supposed to be circulating through the tournament. Romin admits that they are supposed to be, and Luke immediately asks why he doesn't have one yet, with Gavin noting that none of their opponents have used one either. Yuga begins thinking, and Roa asks what's up; Yuga admits he was thinking about what Otes said about the true purpose of the tournament and wonders what he meant by that. Roa comments that Otes is clearly up to something and Nail adds that Otes was the one who gave the opportunity for Rush Dueling to be installed as he stares at his empty ramen bowl, adding that anything that interferes with Dueling is against providence. Roa slyly asks Nail why Otes said what he did, and Nail admits that he's not sure, prompting Roa to tease "Mr. Genius" over not knowing everything.

Hunt, Diggs and Kaseki arrive.

The door opens and Hunt's voice comments that it's the guys from Goha #7 Elementary. Luke recognizes Diggs and Kaseki from the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club, but Hunt's voice tells them that they've changed their team name to Team Excavating Treasure HUNTers. Diggs comments that Mr. Hunt has really moved up in the world, and Kaseki notes to Mr. Hunt that it's been a while. Luke and Yuga are surprised that Diggs and Kaseki are using honorifics to refer to Hunt, and Romin asks if their vibe has changed. Hunt grins and Diggs and Kaseki part to reveal that he has dyed his hair blonde and is wearing garish gold clothes and jewelry that blind everyone in the room (except Nail, who has his back to the door). Hunt suggests that they go somewhere else, as there will be restaurants in the shopping district more worthy of someone like him. Roa is surprised by Hunt's dismissal of the ramen and Yuga offers them their seats, as they've just finished. Hunt suggests they have an after-meal Duel and challenges Yuga to a one-on-one Duel, much to Luke's surprise. Hunt explains that Diggs and Kaseki would never be a match for Nail or Roa (much to their disappointment) and Romin observes that Hunt has changed, as Gavin protests that this is no way for Hunt to talk to his seniors. Yuga is fine with the challenge, but seeks permission from his teammates; Roa doesn't mind leaving the Duel to him, and after Nail is served up his Rush Ramen: Pork Maximum he leaves the Duel to Yuga. much to Seatbastian's concern. Yuga and Luke eagerly head outside as Hunt, Diggs and Kaseki smile and a Goha Enterprises Drone declares the match; YugaNail with R's Yuga Ohdo vs. Excavating Treasure HUNTers' Hunt Goto. Diggs and Kaseki prepare Hunt for the match, placing a gold dinosaur helmet on his head and lifting him in a golden fish-like throne, much to the interest of Roa and the bewilderment of everyone else. Diggs mentally congratulates Hunt for engaging Yuga in a one-on-one Duel and Kaseki notes that Nail has a Maximum, while they don't know Roa's Deck that well, and Hunt adds that Yuga's "Magnum Overlord" was destroyed. Romin meanwhile has just looked up Hunt's team in the rankings; they're third on the leaderboard with 140 points in comparison to YugaNail with R's 343 and Team Lukeking Lukekings' 336. Hunt modestly claims that they're trying their best and he asks Yuga to go easy on them as he straps on his Duel Disk. Yuga straps on his own, and they both insert their Decks into their Duel Disks and deploy the blades, calling "Rush Duel!"

Yuga's friends aren't impressed by Hunt's tactics and monsters.

The green holographic dome appears around them and Hunt declares his turn and his excavating draw. He's drawn "Zenigebazauls", which he adds to his hand containing "Celebrontosaurus", two "Platinumdon", and "Upstart Goblin" and states that he'll give Yuga a present first by playing the Spell Card "Upstart Goblin", drawing a card and then allowing Yuga to gain 1000 LP. He draws "Jurassic World" and Yuga is shocked that Hunt is giving him LP as he rises to 5000 LP. Hunt suggests that Yuga treat it as a forward investment as he activates the Field Spell Card "Jurassic World", causing a volcano to erupt around them as they are surrounded by a jungle, and Hunt explains that this is the beginning of the age of dinosaurs. He Summons "Platinumdon" with a brilliance brighter than platinum, and "Celebrontosaurus" with a brand-name neck, and the effect of "Jurassic World" increases their ATK and DEF by 300 points each, increasing "Platinumdon" to 300 ATK and "Celebrontosaurus" to 1700 ATK, though Romin isn't impressed by how shiny they are. Then Hunt Tributes both of his monsters to Tribute Summon, chanting "The secret of my strength is in the volume of my savings! Those who laugh at one yen will cry at one yen! Zenigebazauls!" "Zenigebazauls" sneezes as it appears with 2400 ATK, prompting Roa, Luke, Gavin and Romin to all don facemasks as they observe in disgust that this is Hunt's ace monster. Kaseki and Diggs add that due to the effect of "Jurassic World" it will gain 300 ATK, rising to 2700. Since Hunt has less LP than Yuga he activates the effect of "Zenigebazauls" by placing the other "Platinumdon" from his hand on the bottom of his Deck, sending the top two cards of their Decks to the Graveyard. As Hunt sends another "Platinumdon" and another Normal Monster from his Deck to the Graveyard and Yuga sends two cards from his Deck to his Graveyard, Hunt adds that Yuga will take 400 damage for each monster they sent to the Graveyard. Yuga starts as he realizes that he also just sent two monsters to the Graveyard and Hunt crows that he'll take back the LP that he gave Yuga earlier as he orders the "Repayment Dinosaur Sneeze" effect of "Zenigebazauls", who showers Yuga in glowing droplets that reduce him to 3400 LP. Gavin is astonished that Hunt gave Yuga LP without asking and is taking it back, a practice Romin calls scummy as Hunt ends his turn.

Yuga declares his turn and draws, then examines his hand, containing "Curtain of Sparks", "Straynge Cat", "Shining Shaman", "Luminous Parrot", and "Ice Age Catapult". He Summons "Shining Shaman" and "Luminous Parrot", who perches on "Shaman's" shoulder, before Tributing them both to Tribute Summon, chanting "Target acquired! Fire, bullet of ice! Ice Age Catapult!" "Ice Age Catapult" also appears with 2400 ATK, and Yuga Sets a monster, then Sets another card before activating the effect of "Ice Age Catapult", returning the WATER "Amazing Dealer to his Deck to return "Jurassic World" to Hunt's hand with "The Ice Age". "Ice Age Catapult" blasts a bullet of ice from its right shoulder launcher that encases "Jurassic World" in ice and causes "Zenigebazauls", Hunt, Diggs and Kaseki to all sneeze. As Hunt's Duel Disk ejects "Jurassic World" and the ice fades away, Yuga adds that the effect of "Ice Age Catapult" will also reduce the ATK and DEF of "Zenigebazauls" by 600 until the end of the turn. Hunt panics as "Zenigebazauls" falls to 2400 and then to 1800 ATK and Yuga declares his Battle Phase, ordering "Ice Age Catapult" to freeze "Zenigebazauls" over as it launches a bullet of ice from its left shoulder launcher with "Avalance Shoot", destroying "Zenigebazauls" and reducing Hunt to 3400 LP as he screams his ace monster's name in horror. Yuga ends his turn, and Romin and Luke cheer him on as Nail walks out to join them on the sidelines.

Hunt scoffs, declaring his turn and drawing four cards, smiling at his draws. He reactivates "Jurassic World", but this time the landscape transforms into a barren wasteland full of giant dinosaur skeletons and an asteroid falling above them. Hunt smiles as he holds up three cards - "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix [L]", "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix", and "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix [R]". Romin and Luke realize that he has three cards as Gavin and Roa gasp in shock and Yuga and Nail protest that it can't be. Hunt declares a Maximum Summon as he places the three cards down, and Kaseki chants "With an exceptional sense of excavation!" as a large tyrannosaur emerges from the ground, while Diggs chants "And the envy of all, Jurassic!" as a ceratopsian emerges beside it. The two dinosaurs stomp forwards, drawing chains behind them towing a massive wheel-bound plesiosaur with a city atop its back, Hunt chanting "I'll trample on even my seniors to climb up in the world!" All of them chant "Hunt! Hunter! Huntist!" as "Great Imperial Dinnocarriage Dynarmix" roars, standing with 3400 MAXIMUM ATK. Nail gasps that it really was a Maximum, and Luke angrily asks why Hunt has one. Yuga grits his teeth as Hunt adds that the effect of "Jurassic World" will increase the ATK of "Dynarmix" by 300, which Kaseki and Diggs call a Jurassic victory as "Dyanrmix" rises to 3700 MAXIMUM ATK. Then Hunt activates the "God-Hunting Blaster" effect of "Dynarmix" by sending the remaining card in his hand to the Graveyard, and "Dynarmix [L]" turns and breathes a column of fire from its jaws that engulfs and destroys Yuga's "Ice Age Catapult" and his face-down "Straynge Cat". Gavin cries that this is bad; "Dynarmix" has 3700 ATK and Yuga will lose if it attacks him. Hunt chants that he'll destroy everything for the sake of creation as he orders "Dynarmix" to attack with "Giant Dynarmix Impact". "Dynarmix" blasts a column of light into the sky, intercepting the asteroid above them and brining it down towards Yuga.

Luke is furious with the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club for circulating Maximums (or rather, for not giving him one).

But Yuga grins, activating his Trap Card "Curtain of Sparks", and Hunt gasps in shock as Yuga explains that it will reduce the ATK of "Dynarmix" by 500 until the end of the turn, to 3200 MAXIMUM ATK. The asteroid impacts, but Yuga survives with 200 LP and he admits that it was a close one. Hunt ends his turn, unhappy that Yuga survived his mass extinction and Gavin begins to realize what Hunt may have done. Luke furiously snaps around and screams that this is unfair; why does someone like Hunt have a Maximum? A voice tells them that of course Hunt has one, and the customer they served at the beginning of the episode steps into the field spell, explaining that they were the ones distributing Maximums, much to Hunt, Romin, Gavin, Luke and Roa's shock. Kaseki recognizes the boy as their customer from the day before and the boy tells Nail that his investigation is complete. Nail agrees in exhaustion, and Gavin asks Nail who this is. To everyone's shock, Rayne leaps out of the rubber suit she had been wearing, and as Yuga and Gavin react with surprise at her appearance, Rino pops up behind Gavin in his kuruko clothing out of the blue, asking why she is with Nail. Rayne explains that after she left Gavin, Nail picked her up and assigned her a special reconnaissance mission to investigate black-market Maximums. Seatbastian corrects Rayne, protesting that she barged in, and Nail adds that it's a bother. Luke meanwhile is still absolutely furious with Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs for having the Maximums, and his deranged cries that this is unfair spook Kaseki and Diggs into tossing Hunt and his throne aside and confessing. They explain that Hunt had gone back to Maximum Mountain after Yuga and his friends battled the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club and used his sneezcavation power to excavate more Maximums, or rather, the prototype Duel Disk that contained them. Then he sought out Duelists who wanted Maximums, had them trade him something of value and then raked in the profits. Rayne adds that Hunt always made sure to trade one card at a time so that no-one else would have a full Maximum. Luke realizes, and Diggs confirms, that by the time he asked Hunt to help him excavate in Maximum Mountain, it had already been stripped clean. Hunt scoffs that's right and he asks what's wrong with trading Maximums to people who wanted them given that they were more than happy to trade things in for them; clothes, cameras, sneakers, even special discount coupons for the Goha Shopping District that he holds up and that Luke recognizes. Hunt adds that he even got Diggs and Kaseki new excavation equipment and pickaxes and they're still complaining, so he's done with them (much to his friends' shock). He proclaims that sales for Hunting Shopping will skyrocket once he beats Yuga and he tells tim to get ready.

Yuga reveals that he has Maximum Monsters in his Deck.

Yuga grins and he declares his turn and draws five cards. Gavin expresses concern over Yuga having to face a Maximum, but Luke points out that he's got "Sevens Road Magician" and can defeat "Dynarmix" with all six Attributes in his Graveyard. But Hunt claims that it's no use, revealing that "Dynarmix" cannot be destroyed by battle with any Level 7 or lower monsters, so Yuga can keep trying, but he'll never be able to defeat it without one. But Yuga grins and asks if he ever said he didn't have one, stopping Hunt in his tracks. Yuga activates the Spell "Do-or-Die Alliance!", revealing two monsters in his hand to Hunt to draw a card, but if he draws a monster with the same Level as either, he will take 1000 damage. Hunt asks why Yuga would use a card like that as Yuga flips the cards around and then he gasps in shock as he realizes what they are; "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [L]", "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [R]", a pair of Maximum Monsters. Nail explains that he gave "Vast Vulcan [L]" to Yuga, having finished tracking down their source by that point and he didn't need it as he already had "Yggdrago". Roa comments on the notion of giving away Maximums a piece at a time so that no-one had a full set, and he explains that's why he gave his "Vast Vulcan [R]" to Yuga. Luke is surprised that Roa would give a Maximum Monster to Yuga and Roa explains that one of his princess gave it to him as he recalls finding it in the card that thrown to him, though he notes that a single one is useless. Romin knowingly asks if Roa wasn't just saying thank you to Yuga for inviting him to join his team, and Roa asks her not to say that in embarrassment, confirming Romin's suspicions. Hunt tries to protest that you can't Maximum Summon with just two pieces, but when he hears Yuga chuckle he realizes what's happened. Yuga recalls Galian and Chevelle having to leave his team to go to Asana's side, but giving him a letter from Asana, who had wanted to give it to Yuga herself; a letter containing a single Duel ID card that read "Please take this as a token of my gratitude and our friendship". Nail explains that he and Roa worked as a team to give Yuga their two pieces, which is also providence, and Roa adds that now Yuga's Deck contains the blank ID card that Asana gave him; they both declare that Yuga will be able to make a Maximum miracle happen if he can draw that card. Gavin and Romin worry that Yuga will take 1000 damage and lose if he draws a Level 3 or 4 as Hunt watches Yuga preparing to draw in anticipation. Yuga thinks that Nail, Roa and Asana have all entrusted their feelings to him, and he draws the card...and as he does so, the Duel ID card that he draws is rewritten into a Maximum Monster; "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan".

Yuga Maximum Summons "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan".

Roa and Nail celebrate his draw, and Hunt squeaks in fear as Yuga chants "No matter if volcanoes, glaciers, or meteors block my way!" "Providence!" Nail declares. "Rock!" Roa declares. "Pride!" Asana chants. "They'll carve a road through it all!" Yuga chants, and he, Nail, Roa and Asana chant "and flare up into a blaze!" The earth opens in a fissure behind Yuga as he declares a Maximum Summon and places the cards down, telling "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan" to come on out, a towering giant made of rock and magma that remains standing in the fissure with a draconian head for a right arm, standing with 3300 MAXIMUM ATK. Luke gasps that this is Yuga's new Maximum as Hunt braces himself, and Yuga activates the first effect of "Vast Vulcan" by sending "Kuribot" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard, reducing the ATK of "Dynarmix" by 100 times its Level and inflicting the same damage to Hunt. With "The Inferno Blaze", "Vast Vulcan" generates a magic circle with its palm and blasts out several laughing fireballs that slam into the Level 10 "Dynarmix" and reduce it to 2700 ATK and Hunt to 2400 LP. Then Yuga activates the second effect of "Vast Vulcan" by sending "Road Magic - Explosion" from the top of his Deck to his Graveyard, reducing the ATK of "Dynarmix" by a further 800, then destroying "Jurassic World" and inflicting 800 damage to Hunt with "The Ultimate Eruption". "Vast Vulcan" blasts a column of lava at the sky, dispelling "Jurassic World" and as everyone looks around in wonder, "Dynarmix" falls to 1900, then 1600 ATK. Hunt laments the discount of 1100 ATK as his LP falls to 1600 itself, and Yuga chants "Surpass limits, burn everything to ash, go beyond light, and smash through the ages! Vulcan Ignite Hyper Drive!" "Vast Vulcan" ignites the stacks on its shoulders and then blasts a massive sphere of fire from its chest, blowing all three "Dynarmix" pieces away and Hunt with them, wiping out his LP.

Goha 66 appears to offer Hunt a deal.

As the sun sets, the watching Drone declares Yuga the winner of the match and his friends cheer. After Hunt collects himself, he, Diggs and Kaseki all bow in apology to them, and Luke scoffs at them from Hunt's throne, asking whether money or Dueling is more important to them Hunt promptly begins to admit it's money, but Kaseki and Diggs happily smother him and proclaim that it's Dueling that is more important. Luke then tells them to hand over their excavated Maximums so that he can "responsibly hand the over", but Hunt, Diggs and Kaseki admit they've sold them all, much to Luke's dismay. Rino admits to Rayne that he's glad to see she's alright and Gavin asks Nail to take care of her. Nail promptly edges away and refuses, and Seatbastian begs them to take her back. Yuga then notes that it would have been difficult for one person to excavate all those prototype Duel Disks by themselves, and Hunt sheepishly admits that he had help, much to Diggs and Kaseki's surprise. He recalls sneezing and digging in Maximum Mountain, when he was found by the man in the "6" mask and his drones, who asked Hunt to help him find something in exchange for his help in excavating the Duel Disks. When asked who he was, the man simply claimed to be "Goha 66", a name that Yuga and Luke repeat to themselves.

With the end of Day One's Era, Sweets Kakoko announces the current leaders; YugaNail with R has 350 points, while Lukeking Lukekings are just behind them with 336 points. She comments that the final day of this era is looking pretty interesting and gives a cheer of "Goha Rush!"

Featured Duel: Yuga Ohdo vs Hunt Goto[edit]

Yuga VS Hunt.png

The Duel is conducted as a Rush Duel.

Turn 1: Hunt
Hunt's hand contains "Celebrontosaurus", two copies of "Platinumdon", and "Upstart Goblin". Hunt draws "Zenigebazauls". Hunt activates the Spell "Upstart Goblin", drawing a card and having Yuga gain 1000 LP. Hunt draws "Jurassic World" (Yuga: 4000 → 5000 LP). Hunt activates the Field Spell "Jurassic World". Hunt Normal Summons "Platinumdon" (0/1400) and "Celebrontosaurus" (1400/1000). The effect of "Jurassic World" increases the ATK/DEF of all face-up Dinosaur Type monsters on the field by 300 ("Platinumdon": 0/1400 → 300/1700) ("Celebrontosaurus": 1400/1000 → 1700/1300). Hunt Tributes "Platinumdon" and "Celebrontosaurus" to Tribute Summon "Zenigebazauls" (2400/1700 → 2700/2000). As Yuga's LP are higher than Hunt's, Hunt activates the effect of "Zenigebazauls", placing a card from his hand on the bottom of his Deck to send the top two cards of each player's Deck to the Graveyard, and if he sends a monster to the Graveyard this way, Yuga takes 400 damage for each monster sent to the Graveyard this way. Hunt places "Platinumdon" from his hand on the bottom of his Deck, then sends "Platinumdon" and an unknown Normal Monster from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard and "Amazing Dealer" and an unknown monster from the top of Yuga's Deck to the Graveyard (Yuga: 5000 → 3400 LP).[Note 1]

Turn 2: Yuga
Yuga's hand contains "Curtain of Sparks", "Straynge Cat", "Shining Shaman", "Luminous Parrot", and "Ice Age Catapult". Yuga Normal Summons "Shining Shaman" (500/0) and "Luminous Parrot" (1200/600). Yuga Tributes "Shining Shaman" and "Luminous Parrot" to Tribute Summon "Ice Age Catapult" (2400/1600). Yuga Sets a monster. Yuga Sets a card. As "Ice Age Catapult" was Normal Summoned this turn, Yuga activates its effect, placing a WATER monster from his Graveyard on the bottom of his Deck to choose a Spell/Trap Hunt controls to return it to the hand, then he can choose a monster Hunt controls and have it lose 600 ATK/DEF until the end of the turn. Yuga places "Amazing Dealer" on the bottom of his Deck, returns "Jurassic World" to the hand and chooses "Zenigebazauls" ("Zenigebazauls": 2700/2000 → 2400/1700 → 1800/1100). "Ice Age Catapult" attacks and destroys "Zenigebazauls" (Hunt: 4000 → 3400 LP).

Turn 3: Hunt
Hunt activates the Field Spell "Jurassic World". Hunt Maximum Summons "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix [L]", "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix", and "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix [R]", entering Maximum Mode (3400 → 3700 MAXIMUM ATK). As "Dynarmix" is in Maximum Mode and Yuga controls no Level 9 or higher monsters, Hunt activates its effect, sending a monster from his hand to the Graveyard to choose up to two monsters Yuga controls and destroy them. Hunt sends an unknown monster from his hand to the Graveyard and destroys "Ice Age Catapult" and the face-down "Straynge Cat". "Dynarmix" attacks Yuga directly, but since a monster Hunt controls declared an attack while Yuga has a Spellcaster Type monster in his Graveyard, he activates his Set Trap "Curtain of Sparks", reducing the ATK of the attacking monster by 500 until the end of the turn ("Dynarmix": 3700 → 3200 ATK). The attack continues (Yuga: 3400 → 200 LP).

Turn 4: Yuga
Yuga draws "Do-or-Die Alliance!", "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [L]", "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [R]", "Sevens Road Witch", and "Sevens Road Magician".[Note 2] Yuga activates the Spell "Do-or-Die Alliance!", revealing two monsters with different Levels in his hand to draw a card, and if he draws a monster with the same Level as one of the monsters revealed, he takes 1000 damage. He reveals the Level 4 "Vast Vulcan [L]" and Level 3 "Vast Vulcan [R]", and draws the Level 10 "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan". Yuga Maximum Summons "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [L]", "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan", and "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan [R]", entering Maximum Mode (3300 MAXIMUM ATK). As "Vast Vulcan" is in Maximum Mode, Yuga activates the effect of "Vast Vulcan [R]", sending the top card of his Deck to the Graveyard to choose a monster on the field and reduce that monster's ATK by its own Level x 100, then inflict damage to Hunt equal to that monster's Level x 100. Yuga sends "Kuribot" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard and chooses "Dynarmix" ("Dynarmix": 3700 → 2700 ATK) (Hunt: 3400 → 2400 LP). As "Vast Vulcan" is in Maximum Mode, Yuga activates the effect of "Vast Vulcan [L]", sending the top card of his Deck to the Graveyard to choose a face-up monster Hunt controls and have it lose 800 ATK until the end of this turn, then Yuga can destroy a Field Spell Hunt controls, and if he does, Hunt takes 800 damage. Yuga sends "Road Magic - Explosion" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard and chooses "Dynarmix" ("Dynarmix": 2700 → 1900 ATK), then destroys Hunt's "Jurassic World" ("Dynarmix": 1900 → 1600 ATK) (Hunt: 2400 → 1600 LP). "Vast Vulcan" attacks and destroys "Dynarmix" (Hunt: 1600 → 0 LP).

Featured cards[edit]

The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.


  1. These cards are not shown, but Yuga later returns "Amazing Dealer" to his Deck to activate the effect of "Ice Age Catapult".
  2. These cards are not shown when Yuga draws them, but he later plays the first three, and the other two are seen in his hand when he sends "Road Magic - Explosion" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard.
