"Earthfall", known as "The Demon Possessing His Heart" in the Japanese version, is the seventy-fifth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on October 31, 2018, and aired in Canada on May 3, 2020.

As Playmaker observes Earth and Gore's Duel, he notices that there is something different about Gore. Gore goes all-out and uses his powerful "Dinowrestler" monsters to overwhelm Earth. As the fierce battle between them rages on, Gore suddenly uses some unexpected tactics!

Summary[edit]

Gore explains that he has united with an A.I.

In the Speed Duel between The Gore and Earth, Gore is on 2300 LP and controls the newly Fusion Summoned 3500 ATK "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrextle", while Earth is still on 3400 LP and controls the 0 ATK "G Golem Crystal Heart" and the 2400 DEF "G Golem Token". Up above them, Playmaker asks Gore what on earth he's done, and Gore turns to him as his irises glow orange, claiming that he can now see what they never will. As he perceives himself within the planetscape, he informs Playmaker that an A.I. has become part of his body (in the dub, he specifies that he has an A.I. chip in his brain). Playmaker asks "What?" and Ai tells Gore not to tell him that he implanted an A.I. in his brain (in the dub, Ai protests that would play havoc with Gore's brain cells). Gore reaches out and grasps a green ball of energy in his planetscape, in addition to the yellow on in his other hand and he confirms that he has; he has become one with an A.I. by implanting it in his brain, and he can now Duel beyond the capabilities of mankind. As he combines the energy balls in his hands, Playmaker and Ai are shocked at the notion of becoming one with an A.I.

Gore and Zaizen talk with SOL Tech's researchers about their new A.I. Dueling Chip.

At SOL Technologies, Zaizen tells a shocked Hayami that this is no longer The Gore they know. He recalls taking Gore to meet his researchers, who laid a green object on the desk before them. Gore asked what it was, and one of the researchers explained that their company had developed an A.I. Dueling Chip. "Implant?" Gore had asked, and the other researcher explained that as the name stated, it was implanted in the brain. "In the brain?" Gore had asked. The first researcher explained that by implanting this Duel chip, the brain's thought capabilities expand, allowing him to Duel better than normal people. Later, Gore asked Zaizen if this was what he wanted to show him, and Zaizen confirmed that it was. Gore wasn't happy at the insinuation that he needed an A.I.'s help, and Zaizen pointed out that the chip was still in an experimental phase, bringing considerable risk and in the worst case scenario, Gore wouldn't be himself anymore (in the dub, Zaizen states that he does not want Gore to use the chip, but his superiors do). Claiming that he had fulfilled his professional duties, Zaizen pointed out that Gore could always refuse. Gore grinned, commenting that Zaizen's methods were dirty; guiding him to the gates of hell without a care of what happened afterwards. Zaizen had claimed to be just an employee, and Gore agreed to use the chip (in the dub, Zaizen recommended that Gore didn't use the chip at all, warning him of the risk). Zaizen whispered his name, and The Gore reminded Zaizen that he'd decided to become stronger no matter how. Zaizen watches Gore in the present, thinking that Gore did. Playmaker asks Gore again if he placed an A.I. in his brain, and Gore confirms that he did. Ai shrieks that if he was placed in The Gore's head he'd become Ai Onizuka (a play on The Gore's Japanese name, Go Onizuka; in the dub, he wonders in horror if they're cousins). Playmaker asks if a human and an A.I. can really become one, and Gore notes that Playmaker doesn't believe him and he vows to demonstrate in this Duel. Ai snaps that Gore's pretty confident, but declares that Earth will win in the end. (in the dub, Playmaker tells Ai that's not how families work; Gore adds that even if they did, it wouldn't stop him from capturing all of the Ignis; Ai promptly dis-invites Gore from his family reunion).

Gore orders "Chimera T Wrextle" to attack, and as the "Dinowrestler" Fusion Monster swings around and charges, Earth reminds Gore that the effect of "Gravity Vision" only permits Gore to attack "G Golem Tokens", and the Token monster intercepts "Chimera T Wrextle's" punch. Gore explains that the effect of "Chimera T Wrextle" allows it to inflict piercing battle damage, and the "G Golem Token" shatters, reducing Earth to 2300 LP himself and buffeting him back. Gore adds that the other effect of "Chimera T Wrextle" allows it to gain 500 ATK since it destroyed a monster by battle, increasing it to 4000 ATK. Gore ends his turn, and he sneers that he feels his power rising. There is no doubt that he's reached another level, and he vows that it won't be difficult to capture the Earth and Water Ignis as he revels in his planetscape. Earth narrows his eyes, and he notes that this human is dangerous and is trying to hurt Aqua. Earth decides that it seems that he must fight the humans (in the dub, he thinks that the decision may have been made for him).

He declares his turn and draws, and he activates the effect of "Crystal Heart", Special Summoning "Invalid Dolmen" from his Graveyard so that it is co-linked with "Crystal Heart", and since this effect was used, he places another G Golem Counter on "Crystal Heart". "Invalid Dolmen" reappears from a Graveyard portal, and then another spoke on "Crystal Heart" lights up as Earth explains that the EARTH monster that "Crystal Heart" points to gains 600 ATK per G Golem Counter, bringing "Invalid Dolmen" to 4000 ATK as well. Ai comments in satisfaction that the ATK of "Invalid Dolmen" is now the same as that dangerous dino, and even if they're both destroyed, it's still worth it. Playmaker reminds Ai that the effect of "Tyrant Dino Fusion" will protect "Chimera T Wrextle" from being destroyed once, and Ai admits he's right. Earth declares that instead he'll crush him with power, and he Summons "G Golem Pebble Dog", then he activates its effect as he Summoned it, adding another "Pebble Dog" from his Deck to his hand. He chants "Appear! The circuit that roars the land!" and sets "Pebble Dog" and the Link-3 "Invalid Dolmen" in the Link Arrows, Link Summoning the Link-4 "G Golem Dignified Trilithon". It has 3200 ATK, and is powered up even further by the effect of "Crystal Heart", which sets itself in the three spikes atop the monster and glows a bright blue, increasing it to 4400 ATK. Ai gasps in shock, commenting that "Dignified Trilithon" has more ATK than Gore's monster.

"Chimera T Wrextle" is destroyed.

Earth Sets a card, and then he declares battle, attacking "Chimera T Wrextle" with "Dignified Trilithon". As "Trilithon" begins levitating glowing stone shards, Earth activates its effect, sending an EARTH monster in his hand to the Graveyard to reduce the ATK of Gore's monster by 200 and negate its effects until the end of the turn. Gore scowls, and Earth sends the "Pebble Dog" in his hand to the Graveyard, and the combination of ATK loss and effect negation reduces "Chimera T Wrextle" to 3300 ATK. Then Earth activates the effect of "Pebble Dog" as it was sent from the hand to the Graveyard, adding another copy from his Deck to his hand. He orders "Trilithon" forward, and it launches the stone shards at "Chimera T Wrextle". Gore reminds Earth that the effect of "Tyrant Dino Fusion" will prevent the destruction of "Chimera T Wrextle", and Earth retorts that Gore will still take the damage. The stone shards hit, stirring up winds that buffer "Chimera T Wrextle" and buffet Gore, reducing him to 1200 LP. Earth then declares that the effect of "Crystal Heart" will allow the monster co-linked with it to attack twice per turn. Gore grits his teeth, and Earth orders "Trilithon" to attack "Chimera T Wrextle" again. Once again, "Dignified Trilithon" fires glowing stone shards at "Chimera T Wrextle", destroying it and reducing Gore to 100 LP. Gore is flung backwards, falling to his knee on his Duel Board as his Avatar fizzles, and Ai laments that it was so close; Earth just needed a little more. Earth declares that he'l end it here, and his tree avatar forms a steel-tipped spear from the bark of its hand as Playmaker realizes what Earth is doing. Earth activates his Skill, "Stalactite Spear" as his EARTH monster destroyed Gore's monster by battle, inflicting 100 damage times the destroyed monster's Level. Earth's avatar draws the spear back and it begins to glow, and Playmaker reflects that "Chimera T Wrextle" is Level 8, and Ai cheers that Earth wins. Zaizen gasps that this is bad for The Gore.

Gore falls into the other world that the A.I. allows him to see.

But Gore simply closes his eyes and thinks back to the experiments. While he was training, Zaizen and Hayami watched in shock as their researcher explained that the brain's energy maxed out during a Duel, and another employee added that there were many abnormalities in the biomarkers; it was too dangerous to continue. A voice declared "You lose" in English, and they realized that The Gore had lost (in the dub, he had lost twelve times in a row). The dome had opened, and Gore, already having lost weight, had fallen out. Zaizen had asked if he was okay, and Gore had staggered to his feet, heedless of the risk. Hayami had called a doctor, but Gore snapped that he didn't need a doctor and he braced himself against the wall before clutching his head in agony as he began to perceive the other world and was swept away with a howl. He woke to find himself being helped along by Zaizen, who asked if Gore was okay, adding that he respected Gore's determination, but stated that Gore was going too far (in the dub, he announced his intentions to shut the project down). Gore snapped that it was none of Zaizen's business; just a little more, just a little more and he could seize it. He threw Zaizen's arm off his shoulder and staggered away, and Zaizen whispered The Gore's name (in the dub, he gave Gore one last chance). Still, Gore kept losing his Duels, he reflects. Everyone thought the experiment failed, but he finally won (in the dub, he won the next time he Dueled), and he broke the record for consecutive wins, as Hayami pointed out. Zaizen had wondered what was going on, and the door had opened to reveal Gore, now with simply bandages wrapped around his wrists, who looked around, but only saw the planetscape of Brain Hack. He raised his hand, and energy concentrated in it, and then burst into three spheres that Gore grasped. He reflects that he seized it, and he staggered as Zaizen ran up to him, protesting that Gore was at his breaking point and ordering the experiment stopped. Queen had then told Zaizen that there was no need for that; the implant chip would bring lots of money to SOL Technologies in the future. Zaizen had protested that The Gore was in great danger if he continued, but Gore replied that this was what he wanted; his winning percentage had increased and there should be no objections. Zaizen protested that Gore could die, but Gore didn't care, much to Zaizen's shock. Gore admitted that it was a shame he couldn't show Zaizen the different world that the A.I. was showing him, a beautiful sight that he couldn't let go of. In the present, Gore declares that he seized a new world, and Earth declares that he'll end him with this Skill, telling Gore to take "Stalactite Spear". His tree avatar hefts the glowing spear at Gore, and Ai cheers that Earth's won.

The Gore activates his Skill to counter Earth's "Rock You" Skill - "Anti Skill".

Not yet, Gore says, and bulging veins spread around his eyes. Playmaker gasps and Gore increases his capabilities to Brain Hack level 2 (he does not specify this in the dub), then activates his own Skill, "Anti Skill". He holds out a glowing hand, and Playmaker and Ai gasp in shock as the spear pierces Gore. Earth flies past Gore, and Ai cheers that Earth did it, while the watching Zaizen leans forwards in shock. But then the spear disintegrates, much to Earth's shock as he realizes that his Skill was stopped. Gore smiles and he looks around at Earth, explaining that his union with an A.I. allowed him to create this new Skill; once per Duel, "Anti Skill" allows him to negate his opponent's Skill and then draw two cards. Earth ends his turn in frustration, while Playmaker muses on the idea of a Skill capable of negating the opponent's Skill. Ai whispers the Skill's name and he notes that Gore created a new Skill that never existed before and it seems that he really has become one with an A.I. Playmaker comments that this is why Gore's appearance has changed. Blue Gal suddenly zooms up to Playmaker, calling his name. Ai says Blue Gal's name, and Blue Gal observes the Earth Ignis and The Gore, explaining that she heard what's going on and doesn't intend to fight Playmaker as her priority is to protect the Ignis. Playmaker nods in agreement, and Ai protests that Earth wants to settle this in a Duel (in the dub, Ai teases her for arriving fashionably late). Blue Gal asks after the Duel's status, and Playmaker replies that Earth has the advantage, but the outcome of the Duel is still undecided. The watching Zaizen mentally begs Skye not to do anything crazy. Then an urgent message from one of the employees monitoring The Gore comes in; she explains that there's trouble and that this is too taxing on Gore's body. His life signs skyrocket, and inside the dome Gore is sweating and breathing heavily.

Back in LINK VRAINS, Gore comments that he sealed away Earth's Skill, but does he still intend to continue this Duel? Earth replies that of course he does; Gore might have sealed away his Skill, but he's lost his ace monster and has few LP left. He'll protect "Crystal Heart" and defeat Gore. (This exchange is cut from the dub). Gore comments that Earth's style is like looking at his past self, and he warns him that he'll show him the difference in their powers. He declares his turn and draws, then he Special Summons "Dinowrestler Coelasilat" - a Tuner monster - from his hand since he controls no monsters. Next since he controls a "Dinowrestler" monster, he Normal Summons "Dinowrestler Eskrimamenchi" without Tribute. Orange energy erupts behind him as Gore tunes the Level 2 "Coelasilat" with the Level 6 "Eskrimamenchi". He chants "The muscular ancient king, kick all your enemies! Synchro Summon! Appear, Level 8! Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate!" ("The kings of the prehistoric unite to form a new future of terror! I Synchro Summon! Level 8! Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate!" in the dub.)

Gore also revives "Chimera T Wrextle", giving him two powerful "Dinowrestlers".

Earth frowns and he whispers "Synchro Summon..." Playmaker notes that Gore first used Fusion Summoning, and has now used Synchro Summoning. Blue Gal comments that The Gore has evolved. Ai protests that Earth still has a monster with 4400 ATK and Gore can't get past that (in the dub he also decries Gore hacking his brain to do so). Gore then activates the Spell Card "Spacetime Transcendence", banishing at least two Dinosaur monsters from his Graveyard, then Special Summoning another from his hand or Graveyard whose Level equals their combined Levels, though it won't be able to attack this turn. He banishes the Level 1 "Dinowrestler Martial Ampelo" and the Level 7 "Dinowrestler Pankratops" from his Graveyard, then orders the wild one to revive - "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrextle". Both "Dinowrestlers" roar ferociously, and Earth asks what Gore can do by Summoning a monster that can't attack. Gore laughs, and he activates the effect of "Giga Spinosavate", allowing it to destroy a monster. He orders "Crystal Heart" to break apart as "Giga Spinosavate" rockets forwards and launches a kick at Earth's monsters.

The specter of "Chimera T Wrextle" attacks.

Earth snaps that he won't let Gore, and he activates the effect of "Trilithon" as a card effect targeted a monster he controls, negating that effect and destroying that card. "Trilithon" generates a blue energy shield around "Crystal Heart", absorbing the fired blast and then reflecting it. Gore responds with the effect of "Giga Spinosavate" as it would be destroyed, destroying "Chimera T Wrextle" instead. "Chimera T Wrextle" intercepts the blast and disintegrates, and Gore activates its effect as it was destroyed by a card effect. A specter of "Chimera T Wrextle" forms in front of "Giga Spinosavate", and Playmaker asks what it is. Ai yelps that this looks bad, and Gore reveals that the effect of "Chimera T Wrextle" will now destroy all Attack Position monsters Earth controls. The specter glows orange and advances on Earth's monsters, and as Earth scowls in frustration, Playmaker notes that since this effect doesn't target it can't be stopped by the effect of "Dignified Trilithon". Ai yelps that this is bad; Earth's field will be empty if both of his monsters are destroyed.

Once again, Earth vows to protect "Crystal Heart".

But Earth activates a Trap Card, "Gravity Protection", allowing him to Tribute an EARTH monster and then equip it to one of his Link Monsters. He Tributes "Trilithon", and explains that while it is equipped to "Crystal Heart", it can't be destroyed by battle or card effects, and it gains half of the original ATK of "Trilithon". A specter of "Trilithon" briefly flickers behind "Crystal Heart" as it increases to 1600 ATK, and the specter of "Chimera T Wrextle" sprouts shadow tendrils shaped like dinosaur heads that ricochet off another energy shield that protects "Crystal Heart". Earth pants heavily, asking how that is; he saved it (in the dub, he vows that Gore will never destroy his Heart). Ai is amazed, and Blue Gal adds that now "Giga Spinosavate" can't end him. Ai adds that since Earth has "Crystal Heart", he'll be able to resurrect the ace in his Graveyard. Gore only has 100 LP left, so Earth can win. Earth yells that he'll say it again and again; he'll protect "Crystal Heart". Blue Gal is struck by his dedication, and Playmaker wonders what The Gore will do in this hopeless situation. (Playmaker and Blue Gal's statements here are cut from the dub; Earth states that it's over, and Gore agrees, but it isn't over for him.) But Gore ecstatically claims that he doesn't care if Earth protects it or not; can he see what Gore sees? Earth asks what he means, and Gore's eyes glow again as he declares that it seems as though Earth can't see it; Gore is a human-A.I. hybrid, and he madly cries that he can see a world that Earth can't; a world where Gore wins the Duel (in the dub, he claims that Earth would have defeated the old Gore, but the new Gore can now calculate the strategy he needs to defeat him).

"Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate" destroys Earth's precious "G Golem Crystal Heart", defeating him.

He declares battle, and "Giga Spinosavate" attacks "G Golem Crystal Heart", and as he does so, Gore activates a Quick-Play Spell Card, "Dino Roar" as his Dinosaur monster is battling, allowing him to send one Spell or Trap Earth controls to the Graveyard. Earth gasps in horror as Gore gleefully selects "Gravity Protection", and the specter of "Dignified Trilithon" explodes with it, causing "Crystal Heart" to fall to zero ATK. Earth begs Gore to stop and not to do this, but Gore simply declares the finishing blow, ordering the "Claw Dive Chassé" attack of "Giga Spinisavate". "Giga Spinosavate" jumps into a diving kick, its foot glowing with blue energy, and Gore leans forward with bloodshot eyes, screaming that this is how he Duels when he's one with an A.I. "DON'T DO IT!" Earth screams, but "Giga Spinosavate's" kick connects, and "Crystal Heart" shatters into fragments from the point of contact.

Earth is absorbed into The Gore's Duel Disk.

Earth screams in heartbroken agony as his LP falls to zero and his tree avatar disintegrates. His body begins to shine, and Ai cries Earth's name. Earth hangs unresponsively in the air as his data is stripped into Gore's Duel Disk, and the insane Bounty Hunter grins and he declares that he's captured the Earth Ignis. Blue Gal gasps "No way..." and Ai laments that Earth was captured. Playmaker orders The Gore to free Earth; that Ignis isn't their enemy. Gore replies that he doesn't care if Earth is an enemy or not; he's done warming up. He points at Playmaker and he tells him that he's next, as Gore came here to defeat him. Ai angrily notes that Gore fused with an A.I. to defeat Playmaker (in the dub, Ai snaps that there are easier ways to Duel them), and Playmaker protests that they fought together as allies. Gore retorts that he doesn't care about that, much to Playmaker's shock, and Ai laments that Gore really has changed. Blue Gal flies forwards, declaring that she'll take The Gore on, but Gore's Avatar suddenly begins to fizzle, much to Playmaker, Ai, and Blue Gal's shock. In SOL Technologies, Queen orders her staff to log Gore out by force; retrieving the Earth Ignis is their priority. Gore notes that it seems like someone's butting in, and before he logs out he wows that he'll defeat Playmaker next time and warns him to prepare himself. Blue Gal laments Gore's escape, and Playmaker whispers "Gore, you..." Ai tearfully begs Earth to wait; they promise to save him (in the dub he screams that this isn't right).

Earth's memories fade as he is dissected by SOL Technologies.

That night, under a blood moon at SOL Technologies, Earth is restrained under a glass hexagon, and he wakes to see his surroundings. Queen tells the Ignis that he gave them quite the trouble, while Emma and Skye watch on a feed from Emma's hideout. Queen walks forward, explaining that they'll now dissect the Ignis in order to collect its data. She orders them to begin, and a staffer starts up a generator beneath Earth's prison. Earth looks around, wondering what is happening, and a technician wearing a surgical mask brings an instrument down and blasts a magenta laser beam from it, severing Earth's fingers on his right hand, which disintegrate into data and leave behind a magenta wound. Gore watches without care, while behind the smiling Queen, Zaizen turns away, unable to watch what is happening. Earth looks away from his wound at the technician, where the data is flowing into his instrument. Skye gasps that the Ignis's body is disappearing, and the technician severs the rest of Earth's hand, which likewise disintegrates and is absorbed. Earth realizes what is happening to him, and he struggles up, begging them to stop and protesting that he has free will - he is alive. He remembers talking with Aqua, defending her from Ai, and freeing her from Lightnings prison, before pushing her to safety, all the while the technician clinically and mercilessly extracts more and more of his body and tears brim in his eyes. Zaizen can't conceal his expression of horror, Gore has closed his eyes and bowed his head, and in Emma's hideout Skye has her hands over her mouth in horror. As the last remnants of Earth's head vanish, he struggles to remember Aqua and he gasps "My memories are vanishing...Your name...your face...I can't...remember..." (in the dub, Earth vows to never forget Aqua, even if he forgets everything else. Most of the shots of his body being dissected are cut, but it is made abundantly clear what is happening to him.).

Specter senses Earth's death.

In LINK VRAINS, Aqua senses something and she whispers Earth's name. In Café Nom, Ai and Flame suddenly sense something, and Ai asks what that was just now. In the Knights of Hanoi's control room, a single tear falls unbidden from the eye of Specter onto his clenched fist, and he sadly wonders what he sensed just now. Emma says that was horrible, and a shaken Skye remembers what little she knew of Earth, telling Emma that she doesn't understand - what is an Ignis? (In the dub however, Skye understands that the Ignis are alive like humans are, and she vows to make this stop.)

Featured Duel: Earth vs. The Gore[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

The Gore has 2300 LP and controls "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrextle" (3500/0) in the Extra Monster Zone. Earth has 3400 LP and controls "G Golem Crystal Heart" (0/←↓) (with 1 G Golem Counter) in the Extra Monster Zone and a "G Golem Token" (0/2400) in Defense Position.

Turn 3: The Gore
"Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrextle" attacks a "G Golem Token". If "Chimera T Wrextle" attacks a Defense Position monster, its effect allows it to inflict piercing battle damage. The attack continues and a "G Golem Token" is destroyed (Earth: 3400 → 2300 LP). As "Chimera T Wrextle" destroyed a monster by battle, its effect activates, increasing its ATK by 500 ("Chimera T Wrextle": 3500 → 4000 ATK).

Turn 4: Earth
Earth activates the effect of "G Golem Crystal Heart", targeting an EARTH Link Monster in his GY and Special Summoning it to his field so it is co-linked to "Crystal Heart", then placing a G Golem Counter on "Crystal Heart". He targets and Special Summons "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" (2800/←↑→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to ("Crystal Heart": 1 → 2 G Golem Counter). The effect of "Crystal Heart" increases the ATK of all EARTH monsters it points to by 600 for each G Golem Counter on it ("Invalid Dolmen": 2800 → 4000 ATK). Earth Normal Summons "G Golem Pebble Dog" (300/1000). As "Pebble Dog" was Normal Summoned, Earth activates its effect, adding "Pebble Dog" from his Deck to his hand. Earth sets "Pebble Dog" and the Link-3 "Invalid Dolmen" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "G Golem Dignified Trilithon" (3200 → 4400/↑←↓→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to. "Dignified Trilithon" attacks "Chimera T Wrextle". As "Dignified Trilithon" declared an attack on Gore's monster, Earth activates its effect, sending an EARTH monster from his hand to the GY. Until the end of this turn, Gore's monster loses 200 ATK, also its effects are negated. He sends "Pebble Dog" ("Chimera T Wrextle": 4000 → 3300 ATK). As "Pebble Dog" was sent from the hand to the GY, Earth activates its effect, adding "Pebble Dog" from his Deck to his hand. The attack continues and "Chimera T Wrextle" is not destroyed (Gore: 2300 → 1200 LP). While 2 or more G Golem Counters are on "Crystal Heart", its effect allows monsters co-linked to it to make a second attack during each Battle Phase. "Dignified Trilithon" attacks and destroys "Chimera T Wrextle" (Gore: 1200 → 100 LP). As an EARTH monster Earth controls destroyed Gore's monster by battle, Earth activates his Skill "Stalactite Spear", inflicting damage to Gore equal to the destroyed monster's Level times 100. "Chimera T Wrextle" is Level 8. As Earth activated a Skill, Gore activates his Skill "Anti Skill", negating the Skill, then drawing two cards. "Stalactite Spear" is negated, then Gore draws two cards.

Turn 5: The Gore
As Gore controls no monsters, he Special Summons "Dinowrestler Coelasilat" (100/800) from his hand by its own effect. As Gore controls a "Dinowrestler" monster, he Normal Summons "Dinowrestler Eskrimamenchi" (2200/0) without Tributing by its own effect. Gore tunes the Level 2 Tuner "Coelasilat" with the Level 6 "Eskrimamenchi" to Synchro Summon the Level 8 "Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate" (3000/???) to the Extra Monster Zone. Gore activates the Spell "Spacetime Transcendence", banishing two or more Dinosaur monsters from his GY to Special Summon a Dinosaur monster from his hand or GY whose Level equals the total Levels of those banished monsters, but it cannot attack this turn. He banishes the Level 1 "Dinowrestler Martial Ampelo" and the Level 7 "Dinowrestler Pankratops" to Special Summon the Level 8 "Chimera T Wrextle" (3500/???). Gore activates the effect of "Giga Spinosavate", targeting a monster Earth controls and destroying it. He targets "Crystal Heart". As Gore activated a card or effect that targeted a monster Earth controls, Earth activates the effect of "Dignified Trilithon" negating the effect, then destroying that card. The effect of "Giga Spinosavate" is negated. If "Giga Spinosavate" would be destroyed by battle or card effect, its effect allows Gore to destroy one other monster he controls instead. He destroys "Chimera T Wrextle". As "Chimera T Wrextle" was destroyed by a card effect, its effect activates, destroying all Earth's Attack Position monsters. Earth activates his face-down Trap "Gravity Protection", Tributing an EARTH monster, then targeting a Link Monster he controls to equip it with "Gravity Protection". He Tributes "Dignified Trilithon", then targets and equips "Crystal Heart" with "Gravity Protection". The effect of "Gravity Protection" increases the ATK of the equipped "Crystal Heart" equal to half the Tributed monster's original ATK, also it cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects ("Crystal Heart": 0 → 1600 ATK). The effect of "Chimera T Wrextle" resolves, but "Crystal Heart" is not destroyed. "Giga Spinosavate" attacks "Crystal Heart". Gore activates the Quick-Play Spell "Dino Roar", targeting a Dinosaur monster he controls. If that target battles Earth's monster this turn, Gore can send a Spell/Trap Earth controls to the GY. He targets "Giga Spinosavate". As "Giga Spinosavate" is battling Earth's monster, Gore sends "Gravity Protection" to the GY ("Crystal Heart": 1600 → 0 ATK). The attack continues and "Crystal Heart" is destroyed (Earth: 2300 → 0 LP).

Differences in adaptations[edit]

  • In the dub, most of Earth's dissection is cut. The aftermath of his first incision is shown with a purple wound rather than a magenta one, but all subsequent shots of his body are removed, with only his head fading into data kept at the end. However, it is made clear what it happening to him through dialogue.
