"Judgment Arrow" is the forty-eighth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on April 18, 2018.

Playmaker chases after the mysterious individual who attacked Jin, and challenges him to a Duel. However, he has a hard time trying to deal with the mysterious man's never-seen-before cards. In order to achieve victory, Playmaker uses the new card he received from Ai to counterattack!

Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Unknown[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 3: Unknown
"Flow Hydradrive" attacks Playmaker directly. As Unknown's monster attacked, Playmaker activates the effect of "Linkuriboh", Tributing it to reduce that monster's ATK to 0 ("Flow Hydradrive": 1000 → 0 ATK). As "Elphase" is no longer pointing to "Linkuriboh", it loses 300 ATK ("Elphase": 2300 → 2000 ATK).

Turn 4: Playmaker
Playmaker draws and subsequently activates the Spell Card "One-Time Passcode" to Special Summon a "Security Token" (2000/2000). He Special Summons it to the zone "Elphase" points to. "Elphase" gains 300 ATK for each monster it points to ("Elphase": 2000 → 2300 ATK). Playmaker uses "Elphase" and the "Security Token" to Link Summon "Cyberse Witch" (800/LINK-2/↙↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As the Link Summoned "Elphase" left the field, Playmaker activates its effect to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster from his GY. He Special Summons "Defcon Bird" to a zone "Cyberse Witch" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone "Cyberse Witch" points to, Playmaker activates its effect, banishing a Spell Card from his GY to add two cards from his Deck to his hand. He banishes "One-Time Passcode" and adds two unknown cards. As the first effect of "Cyberse Witch" was activated this turn, Playmaker activates its second effect to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster from his GY. He Special Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800).

Playmaker activates the Ritual Spell Card "Cynet Ritual" to Ritual Summon a Cyberse Ritual Monster by Tributing monsters from his hand or field whose total Levels equal or exceed the Level of that Ritual Monster. He Tributes the Level 4 "Cyberse Wizard" and the Level 3 "Defcon Bird" to Ritual Summon the Level 7 "Cyberse Magician" (2500/2000). Playmaker Sets a card. "Cyberse Magician" attacks "Flow Hydradrive". As "Cyberse Magician" is battling Unknown's Link Monster, it gains 1000 ATK during damage calculation ("Cyberse Magician": 2500 → 3500 ATK). As a Link Monster it points to battled, the effect of "Judgment Arrows" doubles its ATK during damage calculation ("Flow Hydradrive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). Unknown activates his face-down Continuous Trap Card "Property Spray", Tributing a monster he controls to gain LP equal to that monster's ATK, then changing the Attribute of all monsters Playmaker controls to that of the Tributed monster's Attribute until the end of the turn. He Tributes the other "Flow Hydradrive" (Unknown: 1400 → 2400 LP), making monsters Playmaker controls become WIND. The attack continues , and "Flow Hydradrive" is destroyed (Unknown: 2400 → 900 LP).

At this point, Unknown is revealed to be Bohman.

As "Flow Hydradrive" was destroyed, Bohman activates its effect to Special Summon a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. As a monster was Normal or Special Summoned to Bohman's field while his LP is less than Playmaker's, he activates the effect of "Hydradrive Generator" to Special Summon a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. "Cyberse Witch" attacks and destroys a "Hydradrive Token".

Turn 5: Bohman
Bohman uses the "Hydradrive Token" to Link Summon "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/LINK-1/↓) to a zone "Judgement Arrows" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to Bohman's field while his LP is less than Playmaker's, he activates the effect of "Hydradrive Generator", Special Summoning a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. Bohman uses the "Hydradrive Token" to Link Summon another copy of "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/LINK-1/↓) to a zone "Judgement Arrows" points to. Bohman activates the effect of "Property Spray", Tributing a "Coolant Hydradrive" (Bohman: 900 → 1900 LP) and changing the Attributes of Playmaker's monsters to WATER. As Playmaker controls a WATER monster, "Coolant Hydradrive" can attack directly. As a Link Monster it points to battled, the effect of "Judgment Arrows" doubles its ATK during damage calculation ("Coolant Hydradrive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). The effect of "Cyberse Magician" halves all damage Playmaker takes (Playmaker: 2000 → 1000 LP). As Playmaker took battle damage, Bohman activates the effect of "Covered Hydradrive" in his hand to Special Summon it (0/???). "Covered Hydradrive" cannot be destroyed by battle, and if there is another "Hydradrive" monster on the field, Bohman takes no battle damage. During his Standby Phase, the effect of "Covered Hydradrive" destroys all "Hydradrive" Link Monsters Bohman controls.

Turn 6: Playmaker
Bohman activates the effect of "Covered Hydradrive", discarding a card to make Playmaker able to attack with only one monster this turn.

At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm. As his LP is 1000 or lower, Playmaker activates his Skill, "Storm Access", to randomly access a card within a Data Storm. Playmaker obtains "Shootingcode Talker" and adds it to his Extra Deck.

Playmaker Special Summons "Degrade Buster" (2500/2500) from his hand by banishing two Cyberse monsters from his GY. He banishes "Elphase" and "Dotscaper". As "Dotscaper" was banished, Playmaker activates its effect to Special Summon it (0/2100). Playmaker activates the effect of "Linkuriboh" in his GY, Tributing a Level 1 monster he controls to Special Summon it (300/LINK-1/↓). He Tributes "Dotscaper". Playmaker activates his face-down Trap Card "Break & Reverse", destroying a Link Monster he controls to Special Summon a monster from his GY with ATK lower than the Tributed monster's ATK with its effects negated. He destroys "Linkuriboh" to Special Summon "Defcon Bird". Playmaker uses "Degrade Buster" and "Defcon Bird" to Link Summon "Recovery Sorcerer" (1500/LINK-2/←↓) to the zone the bottom Link Arrow of "Cyberse Witch" points to. Playmaker activates the effect of "Recovery Sorcerer" to Special Summon a monster in his GY that was destroyed this turn. He Special Summons "Linkuriboh". Playmaker uses "Linkuriboh" and the Link-2 "Recovery Sorcerer" to Link Summon "Shootingcode Talker" (2300/LINK-3/↑←↓) to the zone the bottom Link Arrow of "Cyberse Witch" points to. Playmaker activates the effect of "Shootingcode Talker" to let it attack additional times equal to the number of monsters "Shootingcode Talker" points to, in this case, two, letting "Shootingcode Talker" attack three times this Battle Phase. "Shootingcode Talker" attacks and destroys "Coolant Hydradrive". As "Flow Hydradrive" was destroyed, Bohman activates its effect to Special Summon a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. "Shootingcode Talker" attacks and destroys the "Hydradrive Token". "Shootingcode Talker" attacks "Covered Hydradrive". As "Shootingcode Talker" that activated its effect attacked while Bohman controls one monster, it loses 400 ATK ("Shootingcode Talker": 2300 → 1900 ATK) (Bohman: 1900 → 0 LP).
