The Knight's attempt[edit]

The Knight draws "Cyberse Gadget". The Knight activates the Equip Spell Card "Megamorph", equipping it to "Update Jammer". As the Knight's LP is lower than the Ancient Ghost, the effect of "Megamorph" makes the ATK of "Update Jammer" become double its original ATK ("Update Jammer": 2000 → 4000 ATK). "Update Jammer" attacks "Link Spider". As the Knight's monster declared an attack, the Ancient Ghost activates its face-down Trap Card "Chaos Burst", Tributing a monster to destroy the attacking monster, then inflict 1000 damage to the Knight. It Tributes "Link Spider" to destroy "Update Jammer" (The Knight: 100 → 0 LP).

After the Knight failed the puzzle, Unknown took his attempt.

As "Cyberse Gadget" was Normal Summoned, Unknown activates its effect, Special Summoning a Level 2 or lower monster from his GY. He Special Summons the Level 1 "Dotscaper" (0/2100). Unknown uses "Cyberse Gadget" and "Dotscaper" to Link Summon "Binary Sorceress" (1600/←→) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Update Jammer" points to. As "Cyberse Gadget" was sent from the field to the GY, Unknown activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Gadget Token" (0/0). As "Dotscaper" was sent to the GY, Unknown activates its effect, Special Summoning it (0/2100). Unknown uses the "Gadget Token" and "Dotscaper" to Link Summon "Proxy Dragon" (1400/←→) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Binary Sorceress" points to. Unknown uses "Binary Sorceress" to Link Summon "Secure Gardna" (1000/→) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Proxy Dragon" points to. Unknown activates the Spell Card "Tremendous Fire", inflicting 1000 damage to the Ancient Ghost, and 500 damage to himself.
