"Gakuting" is the fiftieth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on May 30, 2021.
The second round of the final match is Gakuto vs Nail! Gakuto thinks that Ranze graduated from the "Neo Sogetsu Style" because he's lackluster. Therefore, Gakuto has been preparing a further evolved "Continuously Progressive-type" Sogetsu Style against the formidable Nail!! Its evolved form is... and the keyword is "Gakuting"!?
As the crowd cheers in Goha Stadium, Flash Umiko recaps that with Romin Kirishima's victory over Roa, Team Lukeking Lukekings now have 770 points and they're tied with Team YugaNail with R now, so the next round will decide the finals. As Roa waves to the crowd from his place beside Yuga and Nail, Romin asks Luke if Gakuto is up next and notes that Nail will be his opponent. Recalling Nail's "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree", Gakuto notes that he's well aware that Nail isn't an opponent he'll be able to beat easily, but he can't afford to lose here. To Roa's surprise, Ranze leaps in behind Nail dressed in her kuroko clothing and vows to support Nail while Sebastian is busy, though Nail replies that he's fine. Ranze offers to give his shoulders a massage, but Nail deadpanly begs her not to do anything as Yuga and Roa watch curiously. Romin asks why Ranze is attached to Nail and Gakuto explains that the blame lies with him, as Ranze graduated from Neo Sogetsu Style because he wasn't distinguished enough. Luke comments that's true; Nail is easily the more distinguished of them, and though Romin tells Luke off for saying that just as Gakuto is about to Duel, she struggles to admit that Gakuto is at least a little distinguished. Gakuto assures them he has a plan to win this match with overwhelming dignity. Yuga meanwhile is excited by the prospect of a Duel between Gakuto and Nail, but remembers to ask how Sebastian is doing. Nail explains they haven't contacted him yet, but they are looking for a program that causes abnormalities in the system and it might be too complicated for them. Roa reassures them that he sent his best friend to help out.
Down in Haven, Arai curses that he can't find the program no matter how much he washes he data while Nekoyama notes that their fate lies with either finding the data or not finding it. Even Sebastian is at a loss, but then Getta and Ushiro arrive, Getta declaring that this is his stage. Arai asks why Getta returned, and Getta explains that Roa asked him to, Ushiro reminding them that Getta is a genius hacker whose skills were recognized by Nail. Getta vows to find whatever's at work behind the tournament, and he'll get it all (a play on the Japanese meaning of his name), something Sebastian admits to be reassuring and he tells Getta that they're counting on him. But as he works, Arai, Nekoyama and Sebastian all keep interjecting that they've already checked areas of data, throwing Getta off until Ushiro tells him to leave these guys to him and Getta eagerly agrees.
Back in Goha Stadium, Umiko declares the start of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal's second round; Lukeking Lukekings' Gakuto Sogetsu (who throws off his uniform to reveal his kimono) vs. YugaNail with R's Nail Saionji, who straps on his Duel Disk. Both ready to go, they call "Rush Duel!" and insert their Decks into their Duel Disks, deploying the blades and the green holographic dome. As Luke and Romin board a hovering platform to watch the Duel, Ranze leaps in behind Nail, warning him to be careful as Gakuto is a ruler of "Yameruler". As Nail muses on the notion of a ruler, Gakuto asks them to allow him to show them what lies beyond Neo Sogetsu Style - an even newer Sogetsu Style. He flings off his kimono, and everyone can only gasp in shock at what Gakuto is wearing beneath it as he rises on a platform - a white hoodie, baggy lilac pants, an oversized medallion bearing his family crest and a red cap with false dreadlocks attached to it. Gakuto hammily calls "HEYYYY EVERYBODYYYY!" in English and makes a "G" sign with his hand as he dubs himself "Gakuting" and suggests that they all get distinguished, calling "Come on, come on!" in English. Romin, Luke, Yuga and Roa can only watch in shock as Gakuto declares his turn and draws from a kneeling position. Romin asks what happened to Gakuto, and Gakuto declares that he thought long and hard about how to truly distinguish himself and came to the conclusion that Sogetsu Style needed to evolve. Therefore, NEO Sogetsu Style Gakuto Sogetsu is the most progressive form and he has become Gakuting. As Gakuto encourages everyone to get distinguished Romin explodes with frustrations and scratches her scalp at Gakuto doing this at such an important time, while the crowd - including Yoshio, Masahiko, Bochi, Toshihiko, Hunt, Kan, Kaseki, Jango and his aides, Asana, Tiger, Chevelle, Trapigeon, Galient, and Zomyoji - all watch in shock as Gakuto declares that you've got to come on with their quest. Even Mimi, Goha's secretary and the other Goha Corporation executives are completely lost for words, and Roa explains Gakuto's wordplay to Yuga; "kamon", the word for family crest is pronounced the same as the English "come on". He asks if that's Gakuto's family crest, and Gakuto admits that it is. Roa adds that Gakuto was also making a pun with "yay" and "ie", the Japanese word for house, but Romin angrily snaps at her cousin to shut up. As he examines his hand, containing "Fortified Fiendish Forest's Fiend Force - Z", "Refined Rulers - The Three Fiendish Commanders", and three copies of "Checkrael the Sun Angel, Yo" Gakuto is fully aware of just how much he's messed up, but now that he's entered a progressive age he cannot be stopped. He Summons three "Checkrael the Sun Angel, Yo" and tells everyone to check them out as they appear with 1500 ATK each. He Sets two cards and ends his turn with a bam-bam-bam, making a "G" with his hand and declaring "Gakuting!" Romin messes up her hair in frustration and Luke comments that Gakuto is certainly reliable, prompting Romin to ask how Gakuto is being reliable right now. Luke asks if Romin thinks it's easy to stay sane in a title match as important as this and on top of that Gakuto is Dueling Nail and will be well aware of the prospects of fighting "Yggdrago". Romin concedes his point, and Luke congratulates Gakuto on staying calm, claiming that all the Lukes within him are cheering him on, and Gakuto flashes him a "Gakuting", much to Romin's distaste. Gakuto then unleashes a cry of "Let's d-d-d-d-d-distinguish", much to Romin's utter frustration.
Nail rises on a platform of his own as Gakuto calls him out directly, calling him "Channail" and asking what's switching his channels. Nail repeats the name and Gakuto tells him that it's his turn. Nail agrees and he draws, then examines his hand, containing "Pair Collision", "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree", "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree [R]", "Seedclotron Brusseln", and "Heavenly Protection". He activates the Spell Card "Heavenly Protection", explaining that he can send as many monsters as he wants from his hand to the Graveyard, and if he sends monsters whose total Levels equal 10, he can draw two cards. He holds up the Level 10 "Yggdrago the Heavenly Dragon Tree" and Gakuto gasps "Gakuting?" in shock as Nail sends the Level 10 "Yggdrago" to the Graveyard and draws two cards. Umiko is shocked at the notion of sending "Yggdrago" to the Graveyard, as is Luke, and Romin wonders if Nail thinks that Gakuto is too pathetic to use "Yggdrago" on. Gakuto sweatdrops as Nail draws two copies of "Cycliptron" and Summons them, then Tributes them to Tribute Summon "Seedclotron Brusseln". He activates the effect of "Seedclotron Brusseln", sending the top card of his Deck - "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree [L]" - to the Graveyard, and if he sent a Cyberse monster with this effect he can add monsters from his Graveyard with 0 DEF to his hand up to the number of monsters Gakuto controls. Romin notes that Gakuto has three monsters, and Luke realizes that Nail is planning to add the "Yggdrago" pieces that he sent to the Graveyard earlier. As Nail adds "Yggdrago" and "Yggdrago [L]" back to his hand he comments that this will obviously become a Duel that Gakuto will regret, so he'll end it quickly for him. Romin worries over Nail's impending Maximum as he Sets "Pair Collision", then sends "Seedclotron Brusseln" to the Graveyard and holds up the three "Yggdrago" cards, which shine with light and begin to absorb energy as Nail chants "Heaven, earth, light, darkness, creation, despair, eternity, demise, destiny... This is the new myth which will permeate throughout the world... Now is the time to bestow reason upon all of creation with your three sets of insight... Maximum Summon!! Come forth! Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree!!" The mass of vines coils from the cards his Duel Disk fires into the air, splitting into three and blooming the three heads of the monster, which looms above them and fills the stadium, standing with 4000 MAXIMUM ATK. Gakuto, Romin and Luke all gasp in horror at the sight of "Yggdrago" and Umiko cries that Nail has already Maximum Summoned. Nail sends the top three cards of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the Maximum Effect of "Yggdrago", destroying a monster Gakuto controls. "Yggdrago [L]" breathes its "Blizzard of Providence" and destroys a "Checkrael the Sun Angel, Yo" as Gakuto cries out in shock, and then Nail orders "Yggdrago" to attack with "Ragnarok Tri-Burst Streak", destroying another "Checkrael" with its three pillars of fire and blasting Gakuto off his feet, reducing him to 1500 LP.
Down in Haven, Ushiro is distracting Arai, Nekoyama and Sebastian with a scary story about a cat sharpening its claws against a chair while counting plates at midnight and found one that was missing, while Getta continues to to search Nail's data, vowing to find whatever's behind the tournament.
Up in Goha Stadium, Romin calls out to the battered Gakuto and asks if he's all right, and Gakuto springs to his feet with a declaration of "Let's get down and distinguished!" and flashes her a Gakuting sign. Romin angrily asks if Gakuto even plans on winning and Gakuto panics, stammering his name and declaring his turn, drawing "Bowing of the Graying Gauze Guild", "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind", "Demonic Hermit Vessel Kachisuzaku", "Fiendish Commander Yameruler", and "Hero is the Yeet". His hand begins to tremble at the thought of beating the 4000 ATK "Yggdrago" Maximum, and Rinnosuke reaches out to take his hand, reassuring him that he will assist him during his final Rush Duel. Ranze is shocked to see her twin and Gakuto asks what Rinnosuke means by this being his final Rush Duel. Rinnosuke tells Gakuto that he has brought shame to their name and cannot be allowed to carry it on, begging Gakuto to Duel in a way that will not disgrace his family crest.
Then the lights in the stadium go out, and Umiko asks in shock if it's a power outage and requests that everyone wait a moment, as Mimi sweatdrops while her secretary yells at the other executives who can only bow in apology. As Rinnosuke and Gakuto look around in shock, a ray of moonlight from the crescent moon hits Gakuto's medallion and Gakuto sees a figure in the moon. He gasps that it can't be; it's Gakugen Sogetsu, the founder of the Sogetsu Style. He envisions seeing Gakugen (who resembles Gakuto himself) attended to by his aides (who resemble Ranze and Rinnosuke) in a war tent, the male aide explaining that their ironclad defenses have been crushed and they are currently surrounded by the enemy. He asks what Gakugen will do, and his sister suggests that Gakugen leave this to them, Rankage and Rinkage, though Gakugen continues to think as he stands over a map. Gakuto wonders if Gakugen is concentrating on devising a war strategy, but then he realizes what Gakugen is doing; without being distracted by his surroundings, he and his aides are concentrated on finding a clear path to victory, and that is how the Sogetsu have fought and connected to the present for many generations. Seeing himself facing his ancestor, Gakuto realizes that he didn't understand anything and vows to Duel in a way that will not shame his name. The power comes back on and Umiko apologizes for the wait as everyone looks around. Gakuto asks Rinnosuke for his assistance, and Rinnosuke eagerly agrees as he holds up Gakuto's kimono, and Gakuto quickly changes clothes, though he keeps the medallion in hand, much to the joy of Romin, Luke, Yuga and Roa, and Ranze pops up in shock.
Facing down "Yggdrago", Gakuto recalls that it has three effects and examines his hand and makes his decision, declaring that he sees it. Attaching the medallion to his forehead, he Summons "Hero is the Yeet" and then Tributes it and his last "Checkrael" to Tribute Summon, chanting "The flames of tradition will not be extinguished! These overflowing emotions will not be defeated! Revive from the far-gone past! Deploy! Demonic Hermit Vessel Kachisuzaku!" "Kachisuzaku" appears with 2100 ATK and Luke, Romin, Yuga and Gakuto all celebrate Gakuto's new ace monster. Gakuto activates the Spell Card "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind", increasing the ATK of "Kachisuzaku" by 1000 until the end of the turn, to 3100, and as it powers up Ranze gasps in shock and Nail notes the card's name. Gakuto adds that the effect of "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind" also permits his opponent to change a monster they control into Defense Position, but a Maximum in Maximum Mode doesn't have DEF, so it can't exist in Defense Position. Nail smiles and comments that it seems as though Gakuto has realized the providence of Maximums, prompting Luke and Romin to comment that Nail is scared of "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind" blowing him away. Gakuto vows to continue forward and sends a monster from his hand to the Graveyard to activate the Flight for Riches" effect of "Kachisuzaku" - "Yameruler". Ranze, Luke and Romin are all shocked that Gakuto is discarding "Yameruler" and wonder if the effect of "Kachisuzaku" is worth the price. Gakuto explains that it will increase the ATK of "Kachisuzaku" by 1000 until the end of the turn, and "Kachisuzaku" increases to 4100 ATK. Luke gasps the ATK value, and Romin cries that it's stronger than "Yggdrago", while Rinnosuke also notes that if Gakuto sent a Warrior or Winged Beast monster to the Graveyard he can add a Level 6 or lower Normal Monster from his Graveyard to his hand. Gakuto adds "Hero is the Yeet" back to his hand and Summons it, then he Sets another card. Declaring that the enemy is a Maximum, he orders "Demonic Hermit Vessel Kachisuzaku" to attack "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree" with "Demonic Vessel's Flight of Grand Blazing Victory", and "Kachisuzaku" collides with "Yggdrago", shaking the arena and Luke and Romin in their platform as Romin squeals and Luke asks if Gakuto did it.
But Nail has activated the Trap Card "Pair Collision", and Gakuto gasps in shock as Nail reminds him that it will prevent either of their monsters from being destroyed by this battle. His LP falls to 3900 and Romin laments that Gakuto was only able to inflict 100 damage after all that, Luke noting that the 4000 ATK of "Yggdrago" hasn't changed and will be that high next turn as well. Gakuto ends his turn, returning the ATK of "Kachisuzaku" to normal, and Roa comments that was close, but it's not like Nail would lose anyway. Yuga isn't sure, eagerly noting that this is the first time he's seen Gakuto Duel so well, and Roa asks him just whose side he is on.
Nail declares his turn and draws five cards, and Gakuto immediately pays 1000 LP to activate a Trap Card, "Bowing of the Graying Gauze Guild", groaning as he falls to 500 LP. Romin gasps at the LP cost and Rinnosuke explains that this Trap will change Gakuto's monsters to Defense Position. Romin realizes that Gakuto is trying to tighten his defenses, but Nail claims that it's useless, sending the top three cards of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Yggdrago", and the eyes of "Yggdrago [R]" glow as it changes "Hero is the Yeet" to Attack Position. Romin gasps that he was forced into Attack Position, but Gakuto vows that they will protect themselves and he sends "Fiendish Commander Kimeruler" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the Trap "Fortified Fiendish Forest's Fiend Force - Z", changing "Hero is the Yeet" back into Defense Position and preventing it from being destroyed by battle for the rest of the turn. Luke believes that Gakuto's defenses are perfect, but Nail asks if that they have forgotten that this is a Maximum, much to Gakuto and Luke's shock, and he sends three cards from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Yggdrago", causing "Yggdrago [L]" to breath a blast of ice that consumes "Hero is the Yeet". Romin cries that it was destroyed, but Gakuto is laughing and she and Luke worry that Gakuto is Gakuting again. But Gakuto declares that now "Yggdrago" has used all of its Maximum effects, and Luke realizes that Gakuto just needs to survive this battle. Gakuto vows that he will absolutely defend his way through this turn and make it to the next.
But Nail discards "Picock Hightron" to activate the Spell Card "Tribute to The Doomed", destroying a monster Gakuto controls. Bandages disgorge from the card and ensnare "Kachisuzaku", destroying it as Romin screams Gakuto's name. Nail admits that he didn't think he would have to use "Tribute to The Doomed" against Gakuto and chides him for paying too much attention to his Maximum. He had a nice plan, but Nail makes sure to always stay one step ahead of his opponents. Gakuto grits his teeth as Umiko excitedly notes that he only has 500 LP, but is about to be attacked directly by the 4000 ATK "Yggdrago". She notes that Gakuto can always surrender, and Nail asks Gakuto what he will do. Gakuto declares that there's no way that he would, and Nail asks if Gakuto is ready. Gakuto replies that he's been ready for a while now. Luke and Romin cringe in worry and Umiko gasps that Gakuto is planning on taking the direct attack. Nail smiles, commenting that he won't hold back in that case and he orders the "Ragnarok Tri-Burst Streak" attack of "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree", which builds fire in all three of its maws. But Gakuto sends a glowing card from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the Trap "Refined Rulers - The Three Fiendish Commanders", and Roa gasps in shock that it's a Trap that can only be activated when the opponent declares a direct attack. First Gakuto recovers 1000 LP, rising to 1500, though as Ranze notes recovering 1000 LP now won't change anything. Gakuto adds that it has another effect; if he has "Fiendish Commander Yameruler", "Fiendish Commander Kimeruler" and "Fiendish Commander Semeruler" in his Graveyard, he can return them to his Deck. As Romin notes, he already has "Yameruler" and "Semeruler" in his Graveyard, while Gakuto dwells on the card that he only just sent to the Graveyard and he withdraws it...
It's "Fiendish Commander Semeruler", and Ranze gasps its name while Luke, Romin, Yuga and Roa all smile. Gakuto comments that Nail won't have forgotten what Ranze told him earlier; that he is a Ruler. Returning the three "Fiendish Commanders" to his Deck, he explains that as he did, both players will take damage equal to the ATK of the attacking monster. Nail can only gasp "What?!" in shock and Gakuto removes the medallion from his head, reminding Nail that he said that he would defend through this turn and make it to the next one, strapping the medallion to his Duel Disk. "Yggdrago" releases its three pillars of fire and Gakuto holds up the medallion to shield himself, declaring that this is how the Sogetsu Style has survived, fought and connected to the future. Fire erupts from the medallion as Nail gasps in shock and Ranze calls his name, and both Duelists are struck by the flames and flung into the air, screaming as their LP falls to zero.
Umiko cries in shock that both players have zero LP - it's a DRAW. As the platforms sink back into the ground Rinnosuke gasps Gakuto's name and Ranze leaps over and asks if he's all right. Gakuto asks if she would say that he was truly distinguished today, and Ranze tearfully confirms that he was distinguished in a way that would bring pride to the Sogetsu name. She asks Rinnosuke to take care of Gakuto, reminding him that she has graduated from Sogetsu Style, but as she begins to trudge back to Nail, Rinnosuke asks if serving under Sogetsu Style brought her immeasurable pride. Ranze admits that even now it's her pride, much to Gakuto's joy. Meanwhile Roa is brushing Nail's dishevelled hair, chastising him for letting providence be his hairstylist, while Yuga eagerly tells Nail that his Duel with Gakuto was super-fun to watch. Nail smiles and admits that he enjoyed it as well, and Ranze apologizes to him but humbly requests to graduate from Saionji Style. Nail replies that it doesn't really exist, so she should feel free, and Ranze thanks him from the bottom of her heart, vowing not to forget this act of kindness, though Nail insists that she do. As Romin and Luke examine Gakuto's discarded "Gakuting" clothes, Ranze zips back over to Gakuto and bows to him, declaring that she will be in his care, and Gakuto bows back, replying that he will likewise be in hers. Romin congratulates Gakuto, and Gakuto apologizes for being unable to win, though Romin reassures him that a DRAW is fine.
Umiko announces the current points; YugaNail with R on 770, and Lukeking Lukekings is tied with them on 770, so the final round will be Yuga Ohdo vs. Luke. The lights dim and spotlights snap on Umiko and both teams, and Luke steps forwards and vows that he will become the King of Duels, while Yuga steps forwards to face him with a smile.
Featured Duel: Gakuto Sogetsu vs Nail Saionji
Turn 1: Gakuto
Gakuto's hand contains "Fortified Fiendish Forest's Fiend Force - Z", "Refined Rulers - The Three Fiendish Commanders", and three copies of "Checkrael the Sun Angel, Yo". Gakuto Normal Summons three copies of "Checkrael the Sun Angel, Yo" (1500/0). Gakuto Sets two cards.
Turn 2: Nail
Nail's hand contains "Pair Collision", "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree", "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree [R]", "Seedclotron Brusseln", and "Heavenly Protection". Nail activates the Spell "Heavenly Protection", sending any number of monsters from his hand to the GY, and if he sends monsters whose combined Levels equal 10 or more to the GY, he can draw two cards. Nail sends the Level 10 "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree" to the GY and draws two copies of "Cycliptron". Nail Normal Summons two copies of "Cycliptron" (100/1500). Nail Tributes both "Cycliptron" to Tribute Summon "Seedclotron Brusseln" (2400/1600). As "Seedclotron Brusseln" was Normal Summoned this turn, Nail activates its effect, sending the top card of his Deck to the GY, and if he sends a Cyberse monster to the GY this way, he can add a number of Cyberse monsters with 0 DEF from his GY to his hand, up to the number of face-up monsters Gakuto controls. Nail sends "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree [L]" to the GY and adds "Yggdrago" and "Yggdrago [L]" to his hand. Nail Sets "Pair Collision". Nail sends "Seedclotron Brusseln" to the GY and Maximum Summons "Yggdrago", "Yggdrago [L]", and "Yggdrago [R]", entering Maximum Mode (4000 MAXIMUM ATK). As "Yggdrago" is in Maximum Mode, Nail activates the effect of "Yggdrago [L]", sending the top three cards of his Deck to the GY to choose a Level 8 or lower monster Gakuto controls and destroy it. Nail sends three unknown cards from the top of his Deck to the GY and destroys a "Checkrael". "Yggdrago" attacks and destroys a "Checkrael" (Gakuto: 4000 → 1500 LP).
Turn 3: Gakuto
Gakuto draws "Bowing of the Graying Gauze Guild", "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind", "Demonic Hermit Vessel Kachisuzaku", "Fiendish Commander Yameruler", and "Hero is the Yeet". Gakuto Normal Summons "Hero is the Yeet" (1500/0). Gakuto Tributes "Hero is the Yeet" and "Checkrael" to Tribute Summon "Demonic Hermit Vessel Kachisuzaku" (2100/2100). As Nail controls a Level 6 or higher monster, Gakuto activates the Spell "Wicked Warding Weasel's Wind", choosing a face-up monster he controls and have it gain 1000 ATK, then Nail can choose one Attack Position monster he controls and change it to face-up Defense Position. Gakuto chooses "Kachisuzaku" ("Kachisuzaku": 2100/2100 → 3100/2100). Gakuto activates the effect of "Kachisuzaku", sending a Level 7 or higher monster from his hand to the GY to have it gain 1000 ATK, then if Gakuto sent a Warrior or Winged-Beast monster to the GY, he can choose a Level 6 or lower Normal Monster in his GY, and add it to his hand. Gakuto sends the Level 8 "Yameruler" to the GY ("Kachisuzaku": 3100/2100 → 4100/2100), then adds "Hero is the Yeet" to his hand. Gakuto Normal Summons "Hero is the Yeet" (1500/0). Gakuto Sets a card. "Kachisuzaku" attacks "Yggdrago", but as a monster Gakuto controls declared an attack while Nail controls a Level 10 monster, Nail activates his Set Trap "Pair Collision", preventing monsters from being destroyed by that battle. The attack continues (Nail: 4000 → 3900 LP), but due to the effect of "Pair Collision", "Yggdrago" is not destroyed.
Turn 4: Nail
As Nail drew a card(s) during his Draw Phase, Gakuto activates his Set Trap "Bowing of the Graying Gauze Guild", paying 1000 LP (Gakuto: 1500 → 500 LP) to choose up to two Attack Position monsters he controls and change them to face-up Defense Position. Gakuto changes "Kachisuzaku" and "Hero is the Yeet" to face-up Defense Position. As "Yggdrago" is in Maximum Mode, Nail activates the effect of "Yggdrago [R]", sending the top three cards of his Deck to the GY to choose a Defense Position monster Gakuto controls and change it to Attack Position. Nail sends three unknown cards from the top of his Deck to the GY and changes "Hero is the Yeet" to Attack Position. As the battle position of a monster Gakuto controls was changed by Nail's card effect, Gakuto activates his Set Trap "Fortified Fiendish Forest's Fiend Force - Z", sending the top card of his Deck to the GY to choose an Attack Position monster he controls and change it to face-up Defense Position and prevent it from being destroyed by battle this turn. Gakuto sends "Fiendish Commander Kimeruler" from the top of his Deck to the GY, then changes "Hero is the Yeet" to face-up Defense Position. Nail activates the effect of "Yggdrago [L]", sending three unknown cards from the top of his Deck to the GY and destroying "Hero is the Yeet". Nail activates the Spell "Tribute to The Doomed", sending a card from his hand to the GY to choose a monster Gakuto controls and destroy it. Nail sends "Picock Hightron" from his hand to the GY and destroys "Kachisuzaku". "Yggdrago" attacks Gakuto directly, but as a monster Nail controls declared a direct attack, Gakuto activates his Set Trap "Refined Rulers - The Three Fiendish Commanders", sending the top card of his Deck to the GY to gain 1000 LP, then if Gakuto has "Fiendish Commander Yameruler", "Fiendish Commander Kimeruler", and "Fiendish Commander Semeruler" in his GY, he can return those monsters to his Deck to have both players take damage equal to the ATK of the attacking monster. Gakuto sends "Fiendish Commander Semeruler" from the top of his Deck to the GY (Gakuto: 500 → 1500 LP), then returns "Yameruler", "Kimeruler", and "Semeruler" to his Deck (Gakuto: 1500 → 0 LP) (Nail: 3900 → 0 LP).
