Playmaker has realized who Varis might be during their Duel. However, due to a shockwave generated in the Data Storm, Yusaku is forced to log out. In order to stop the Tower of Hanoi's completion, he heads to a certain location in the real world, where Varis is supposed to be...
Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Varis
The Duel is conducted as a Master Duel
Turn 1: Varis
Varis activates the Field Spell Card "Boot Sector Launch", increasing the ATK and DEF of all "Rokket" monsters on the field by 300. Varis activates the effect of "Boot Sector Launch" to Special Summon up to two "Rokket" monsters from his hand in Defense Position. He Special Summons "Shelrokket Dragon" (1100 → 1400/2000 → 2300) and "Metalrokket Dragon" (1700 → 2000/1400 → 1700). Varis Normal Summons "Sniffer Dragon" (800/400). As "Sniffer Dragon" was Normal Summoned, Varis activates its effect to add another copy of "Sniffer Dragon" from his Deck to his hand. Varis uses "Shelrokket", "Metalrokket" and "Sniffer Dragon" to Link Summon "Voritcular Drumgon" (1000/LINK-3/←↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Voritcular Drumgon" was Special Summoned, Varis activates its effect to draw a card. Varis activates the Spell Card "Link Coin", sending a Link Monster on his field to the GY to excavate cards from his Deck, equal to the Link Rating of the sent monster, add one of them to his hand, then place the rest on the top of his Deck in any order, then the sent monster is Special Summoned during his next turn. He sends "Voritcular Drumgon", excavates three cards, and adds "Mirror Force" to his hand. Varis Sets a card.
Turn 2: Playmaker
As Playmaker controls no monsters, he Special Summons "Linkslayer" (2000/600) by its own effect. Playmaker activates the effect of "Linkslayer", discarding up to two cards from his hand to destroy that many Spell/Trap Cards on the field. He discards "Latency" and destroys Varis's Set card. As the Set "Mirror Force Launcher" was destroyed by Playmaker's card effect and sent to the GY, Varis activates its effect to Set "Launcher" and a "Mirror Force" from his hand, Deck, or GY to his field. These cards can be activated this turn. Playmaker Normal Summons "ROM Cloudia" (1800/0). As "ROM Cloudia" was Normal Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect to add a Cyberse monster from his GY to his hand. He adds "Latency" to his hand. As "Latency" was added from the GY to Playmaker's hand, he activates its effect to Special Summon it (0/0). Playmaker uses "Latency" and "ROM Cloudia" to Link Summon "Restoration Point Guard" (1000/LINK-2/←↙) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Latency" was Special Summoned by its effect and subsequently sent to the GY as a Link Material for a Link Summon, Playmaker activates its effect to draw a card. Playmaker uses the Link-2 "Restoration Point Guard" and "Linkslayer" to Link Summon "Excode Talker" (2300/LINK-3/←↑→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Excode Talker" was Link Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect to prevent the use of a number of Main Monster Zones up to the number of cards in the Extra Monster Zones while "Excode Talker" is on the field, in this case one.
"Excode Talker" attacks Varis directly. As Playmaker's monster attacked, Varis activates his face-down Trap Card "Mirror Force" to destroy all Attack Position monsters Playmaker controls. "Excode Talker" is destroyed. As a Link Monster that was Link Summoned using "Restoration Point Guard" as Link Material was destroyed by Varis's card effect while "Restoration Point Guard" was in the GY, Playmaker activates its effect to Special Summon it (1000/LINK-2/←↙). "Restoration Point Guard" attacks Varis directly (Varis: 4000 → 3000 LP). Playmaker Sets a card.
- When "Latency" is first Special Summoned, the DEF gauge that appears mistakenly displays her DEF as being 100, when in actuality she has 0 DEF.
