"Playmaker Returns" is the forty-seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on April 11, 2018.

Peace has returned thanks to Playmaker's efforts. However, LINK VRAINS still suffered heavy damage due to Hanoi's plan. Thus, SOL Technologies rebuilds it into NEW LINK VRAINS. The newly rebuilt Dueling platform has brought a lot of excitement to many. However, in NEW LINK VRAINS, Playmaker is a wanted man, and has a bounty on his head...

Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Unknown[edit]

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel

Turn 1: Unknown
Unknown Sets a card.

Turn 2: Playmaker
Playmaker activates the effect of "Defcon Bird" in his hand, sending a Cyberse monster from his hand to the GY to Special Summon it (100/1700) in Defense Position. He sends "Dotscaper". As "Dotscaper" was sent to the GY, Playmaker activates its effect to Special Summon it (0/2100). Playmaker uses "Dotscaper" to Link Summon "Linkuriboh" (300/LINK-1/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800). Playmaker uses "Defcon Bird" and "Cyberse Wizard" to Link Summon "Elphase" to the zone the bottom Link Arrow of "Linkuriboh" points to. "Elphase" gains 300 ATK for each monster it points to ("Elphase": 2000 → 2300 ATK). "Linkuriboh" and "Elphase" attack Unknown directly (Unknown: 4000 → 3700 → 1400 LP).

Turn 3: Unknown
Unknown Normal Summons "High Drive Booster" (0/0). As a monster was Normal or Special Summoned to his field while his LP is lower than Playmaker's, Unknown activates his face-down Continuous Trap Card "High Drive Generator" to Special Summon a "High Drive Token" (0/0). Unknown uses "High Drive Booster" to Link Summon "Flow High Drive" (1000/LINK-1/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Unknown activates the Field Spell Card "Castle Link". Once per turn, he can move a Link Monster to a Main Monster Zone it points to on its controller's field or switch the locations of two Link Monsters in either player's Main Monster Zones. He activates the first effect to move "Flow High Drive" from the Extra Monster Zone to the zone its bottom Link Arrow pointed to. As his LP is 4000 or lower, Unknown activates his Skill, "Marker's Portal", to activate a Link Spell Card from his Deck. That Link Spell Card cannot be negated or destroyed by Playmaker's card effects. He activates "Judgment Arrows" (↖↑↗) at the Spell & Trap Zone the bottom Link Arrow of "Flow High Drive" points to. Unknown uses the "High Drive Token" to Link Summon another copy of "Flow High Drive" (1000/LINK-1/↓) to the zone the top-left Link Arrow of "Judgment Arrows" points to. Unknown Sets a card.

As Playmaker controls a WIND monster, "Flow High Drive" can attack directly. As a Link Monster it points to battled, the effect of "Judgment Arrows" doubles its ATK during damage calculation ("Flow High Drive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). The attack continues (Playmaker: 4000 → 2000 LP). The second "Flow High Drive" attacks Playmaker directly.

Duel continues in the next episode.
