Playmaker VS Yoroizaka.png

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.

Turn 1: Yozaka
Yozaka Normal Summons "Gouki Suprex" (1800/0). As "Suprex" was Normal Summoned, Yozaka activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Gouki" monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Gouki Riscorpio" (2300/0). Yozaka activates the effect of "Gouki Headbatt" in his hand, sending a "Gouki" monster from his hand to the GY to Special Summon "Headbatt" in Defense Position and increase the ATK of a "Gouki" monster he controls by 800. He sends "Gouki Twistcobra" from his hand to the GY, Special Summons "Headbatt" (800/0), and increases the ATK of "Suprex" ("Suprex": 1800 → 2600 ATK). Yozaka sets "Suprex", "Riscorpio" and "Headbatt" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Gouki The Solid Ogre" (2400/↑←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Suprex", "Riscorpio" and "Headbatt" were sent from the field to the GY, Yozaka activates all of their effects, adding a "Gouki" card with a different name from his Deck to his hand. He adds three unknown cards. Yozaka activates the Spell Card "Gouki Re-Match", Special Summoning two "Gouki" monsters from his GY with different Levels in Defense Position. He Special Summons the Level 5 "Riscorpio" (2300/0) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Solid Ogre" points to, and the Level 3 "Twistcobra" (1600/0). Yozaka activates the Continuous Spell Card "Gouki Unity". As Yozaka controls a "Gouki" Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, "Gouki" monsters in the Main Monster Zone cannot be destroyed by battle or card effect, also Yozaka takes no battle damage from battles involving "Gouki" monsters.

Turn 2: Playmaker
Playmaker draws "Dual Assembwurm". Playmaker activates the effect of "Bitrooper" in his hand, sending a Level 2 or lower monster from his hand to the GY to Special Summon "Bitrooper" from his hand. He sends the Level 2 "Stack Reviver" to Special Summon "Bitrooper" (1500/2000). Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Gadget" (1400/300). As "Cyberse Gadget" was Normal Summoned, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning a Level 2 or lower monster from his GY with its effects negated. He Special Summons the Level 2 "Stack Reviver" (100/600). Playmaker sets "Cyberse Gadget" and "Stack Reviver" the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Security Dragon" (1100/↑↓) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Solid Ogre" points to. As "Stack Reviver" was used as a Link Material for a Link Summon, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning another Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster that was used as a Link Material for that same Link Summon in Defense Position. He Special Summons the Level 4 "Cyberse Gadget". As "Security Dragon" is co-linked, Playmaker activates its effect, returning a monster Yozaka controls to his hand. He targets "Riscorpio", but Yozaka activates the effect of "Twistcobra", Tributing a "Gouki" monster to increase the ATK of another "Gouki" monster by the original ATK of the Tributed monster. He Tributes "Riscorpio" to increase the ATK of "Solid Ogre" ("Solid Ogre": 2400 → 4700 ATK). As "Riscorpio" was sent from the field to the GY, Yozaka activates its effect, adding "Suprex" from his Deck to his hand.

Playmaker sets "Bitrooper", "Cyberse Gadget" and the Link-2 "Security Dragon" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Firewall Dragon" (2500/↑←↓→) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Solid Ogre" points to. As "Cyberse Gadget" was sent from the field to the GY, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Gadget Token" (0/0). As Playmaker controls a Cyberse monster, he Special Summons "Backup Secretary" (1200/800) from his hand by its own effect. He Special Summons it to the zone the middle-right Link Arrow of "Firewall Dragon" points to. Playmaker sets "Backup Secretary" and the "Gadget Token" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Flame Administrator" (1200/←↘) to the zone the middle-right Link Arrow of "Firewall Dragon" points to. The effect of "Flame Administrator" increases the ATK of all Link Monsters Playmaker controls by 800 ("Flame Administrator": 1200 → 2000 ATK, "Firewall Dragon": 2500 → 3300 ATK). As a monster "Firewall Dragon" points to was sent to the GY, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning a monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Dual Assembwurm" (2800/1000). Playmaker activates the effect of "Firewall Dragon", returning monsters on the field or in either player's GY to the hand, up to the number of monsters co-linked with "Firewall Dragon". He returns "Twistcobra" to Yozaka's hand and "Solid Ogre" to Yozaka's Extra Deck.

"Dual Assembwurm" and "Firewall Dragon" attack Yozaka directly (Yozaka: 4000 → 1200 → 0 LP).

Soulburner vs. The Shepherd[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Soulburner has 4000 LP and controls "Salamangreat Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘) in the Extra Monster Zone, as well as "Salamangreat Sanctuary" in his Field Zone. The Shepherd has 4000 LP and controls 3 copies of "Duplicate Drone" (2800/3000) in Attack Position (whose names, Types, Attributes, Levels, and ATK/DEF are treated as the same as the "Despair from the Dark" in his Spell & Trap Zone, due to their own effects), as well as "Drone Barricade" and "Despair from the Dark" (as a Continuous Spell) in his Spell & Trap Zone.

Turn 3: The Shepherd
The first "Despair from the Dark" attacks and destroys "Salamangreat Heatleo" (Soulburner: 4000 → 3500 LP). The second "Despair from the Dark" attacks Soulburner directly (Soulburner: 3500 → 700 LP). The third "Despair from the Dark" attacks Soulburner directly. As Shepherd's monster attacked while Soulburner has 1000 or less LP, Soulburner activates the effect of "Salamangreat Parro" in his hand, Special Summoning it in Attack Position (2000/1000), and making its ATK become equal to the ATK of a "Salamangreat" monster in his GY. He makes its ATK become equal to the ATK of "Heatleo" ("Parro": 2000 → 2300 ATK). A replay occurs and the third "Despair from the Dark" attacks and destroys "Parro" (Soulburner: 700 → 200 LP). Shepherd Sets a card.

Turn 4: Soulburner
As Soulburner controls no monsters, he activates the Equip Spell Card "Rising Fire", Special Summoning a FIRE monster from his GY and equipping it with "Rising Fire". He Special Summons "Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘) and equips it with "Rising Fire". The equipped monster gains 500 ATK ("Heatleo": 2300 → 2800 ATK). When Soulburner Link Summons a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, the effect of "Salamangreat Sanctuary" allows him to use a monster with the same name as Link Material instead. Soulburner sets "Heatleo" in the Link Arrow to Reincarnation Link Summon another "Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Rising Fire" left the field, Soulburner activates its effect, banishing a face-up monster Shepherd controls and as many cards Shepherd controls or in his GY as possible with the same name as that monster, then inflicting damage to Shepherd equal to the original ATK of one of those banished monsters. He targets a copy of "Despair from the Dark", and banishes the three copies of it in the Monster Zones, as well as the one in Shepherd's Spell & Trap Zone (Shepherd: 4000 → 1200 LP). As "Heatleo" was Link Summoned, Soulburner activates its effect, shuffling a card in Shepherd's Spell & Trap Zone to his Deck. He targets "Drone Barricade", but as Soulburner activated a card or effect that targeted "Barricade", Shepherd activates its effect, banishing it to Set another copy of "Barricade" directly from his Deck, which can be activated this turn. Shepherd Sets and subsequently activates another "Barricade". As Soulburner has three or more "Salamangreat" Link Monsters in his GY, Soulburner activates the effect of "Salamangreat Foxer" in his hand, sending it from his hand to the GY to return a "Salamangreat" Link Monster from his GY to his Extra Deck, then destroy a card in Shepherd's Spell & Trap Zone. He returns a copy of "Heatleo" to his Extra Deck and destroys "Barricade".

"Heatleo" attacks Shepherd directly. At this point, Kolter's rescue program is activated, freeing Soulburner from Shepherd's trap, leaving the Duel with no outcome.

Theodore Hamilton vs. Ridley[edit]

Duel continues from episode 61.

Theodore has 4000 LP and controls "Phoenix Gearfried" (3100/2200) and "Valkyrian Knight" (1900/1200), both in Attack Position, as well as "Phoenix Gearblade" (equipped to "Phoenix Gearfried"). Ridley has 4000 LP and controls "Despair from the Dark" (2800/3000) in Attack Position, as well as "Edge of Darkness" in his Field Zone, and "Call of the Mummy" in his Spell & Trap Zone.

Turn 3: Ridley
Ridley Normal Summons "Skull Conductor" (2000/0). "Skull Conductor" attacks "Valkyrian Knight". If a Zombie monster attacks, the effect of "Edge of Darkness" increases the ATK of that monster by 100 for each Zombie monster Ridley controls ("Skull Conductor": 2000 → 2200 ATK). The attack continues and "Valkyrian Knight" is destroyed (Theodore: 4000 → 3700 LP). "Despair from the Dark" attacks "Phoenix Gearfried". The effect of "Edge of Darkness" increases the ATK of "Despair from the Dark" by 200 ("Despair from the Dark": 2800 → 3000 ATK). The attack continues and "Phoenix Gearfried" is destroyed (Theodore: 3700 → 3500 LP). At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Skull Conductor" activates, destroying itself. Ridley Sets a card.

Turn 4: Theodore
As Soulburner controls no monsters, he activates the Equip Spell Card "Rising Fire", Special Summoning a FIRE monster from his GY and equipping it with "Rising Fire". He Special Summons "Phoenix Gearfried" in Attack Position and equips it with "Rising Fire". The monster equipped with "Rising Fire" gains 500 ATK ("Phoenix Gearfried": 2800 → 3300 ATK). Theodore activates the Spell Card "Tempest Fire", targeting a FIRE monster he controls, destroying as many monsters he controls as possible, then each player takes damage equal to the original ATK of the targeted monster, then destroying a monster Ridley controls with ATK less than or equal to the targeted monster's ATK, and inflicting damage to Ridley equal to half the ATK the destroyed monster had on the field, but Theodore cannot Normal or Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn after "Tempest Fire" resolves. He targets "Phoenix Gearfried" (Theodore: 3500 → 700 LP, Ridley: 4000 → 1200 LP), then destroys "Despair from the Dark" (Ridley: 1200 → 0 LP).
