Featured Duels[edit]

The Gore vs Dr. Genome[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 5: Dr. Genome
Genome activates the effect of "Helixx Necro Darwin" (1800/←↑) in his GY, Special Summoning it to a zone a Link Monster he controls points to. He Special Summons it to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Helixx Gothiclone" points to. As a Link Monster was Special Summoned from the GY, Genome activates his Skill "Preserve Species", halving the ATK of one of Gore's monsters and Gore's LP. He halves the ATK of "Gouki Thunder Ogre" ("Thunder Ogre": 3400 → 1700 ATK; Gore: 200 → 100 LP).

Turn 6: Gore
Gore draws the Spell Card "Gouki Face Turn" and subsequently activates it, destroying a "Gouki" card he controls to Special Summon a "Gouki" monster from his GY. He destroys "Gouki Dark Mask" to Special Summon "Gouki Suprex" (1800/0). Gore uses "Thunder Ogre" and "Suprex" to Link Summon "Gouki The Master Ogre" (2800/↑↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Suprex" was sent to the GY, Gore activates its effect to add a "Gouki" card from his deck to his hand. He adds an unknown card. Gore activates the Spell Card "Gouki Re-Match", Special Summoning two "Gouki" monsters with different Levels from his GY in Defense Position. He Special Summons the Level 3 "Gouki Twistcobra" (1600/0) and the Level 5 "Gouki Riscorpio" (2300/0). Gore activates the effect of "Master Ogre", returning all "Gouki" monsters it points to to his hand to negate the effects of monsters Genome controls until the End Phase, up to the number of monsters returned. He returns "Twistcobra" and "Riscorpio" to negate the effects of "Gothiclone" and "Necro Darwin".

"Master Ogre" can attack all monsters Genome controls, but it must attack the monster with the highest ATK. "Master Ogre" attacks and destroys "Necro Darwin" (Genome: 2300 → 1300 LP), then attacks and destroys "Gothiclone" (Genome: 1300 → 0 LP).

The Gore vs. Knight of Hanoi[edit]

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel and begins from an unspecified turn.

Gore's turn
"Gouki The Master Ogre" attacks and destroys the Knight of Hanoi's "Jack Wyvern" (Knight of Hanoi: 1000 → 0 LP).
