"What's Beyond Instincts" is the eighty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on December 19, 2018.

Playmaker has somehow survived The Gore's brutal attack. He attempts to turn things around with his Skill, but The Gore then negates it with Anti Skill. Playmaker is now totally driven into a corner. Is there any way he can get out of this one?!

Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. The Gore[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 3: Gore
The effect of "G Golem Crystal Heart" increases the ATK of all EARTH monsters it points to by 600 for each G Golem Counter on it ("Dinowrestler King T Wrextle": 3000 → 3600 ATK). Gore Normal Summons "Dinowrestler Valeonyx" (1600/0). As "Valeonyx" was Normal Summoned, Gore activates its effect, targeting a "Dinowrestler" Link Monster he controls. He targets "King T Wrextle". Gore Sets a card. "King T Wrextle" attacks "Storm Cipher". As Gore's "Dinowrestler" monster is attacking Playmaker's monster, the effect of "World Dino Wrestling" increases its ATK by 200 during damage calculation only ("King T Wrextle": 3600 → 3800 ATK). The attack continues and "Storm Cipher" is destroyed (Playmaker: 4000 → 2600 LP). As the monster targeted by the effect of "Crazy Evolution" is destroyed by battle or card effect, Gore activates its effect, banishing it from his GY to draw a card.

Turn 4: Playmaker
Playmaker Normal Summons "Dotscaper" (0/2100). Playmaker sets "Dotscaper" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Linkuriboh" (300/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Dotscaper" was sent to the GY, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning it (0/2100). Playmaker sets "Boot Staggered" and "Dotscaper" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Security Dragon" (1100/↑↓) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Linkuriboh" points to. As "Security Dragon" is co-linked, Playmaker activates its effect, targeting a monster Gore controls and returning it to the hand. He targets "King T Wrextle". The effect of "Valeonyx" makes the targeted "King T Wrextle" unaffected by the effects of monsters with equal or lower Link Rating that it. As Playmaker controls two or more Link Monsters, he activates the effect of "Cross Debug" in his hand, Special Summoning it (900/600). Playmaker sets "Linkslayer", "Cross Debug", and the Link-2 "Security Dragon" to Link Summon "Firewall Dragon" (2500/↑←↓→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Linkuriboh" points to. Playmaker activates the effect of "Firewall Dragon", targeting monsters on the field and/or GY, up to the number of monsters co-linked to "Firewall Dragon", and returning them to the hand. He targets "King T Wrextle", but as Playmaker activated the effect of a Link Monster whose Link Rating is higher than or equal to the Link Rating of a "Dinowrestler" Link Monster Gore controls, Gore activates his face-down Trap "Dino Deceit", negating the effects of all face-up monsters Playmaker controls, then Gore can Set a Spell/Trap from his hand, then if this effect was activated during Playmaker's turn, Playmaker must conduct his Battle Phase this turn. The effects of "Linkuriboh" and "Firewall Dragon" are negated, and Gore Sets a card. At the start of Playmaker's Battle Phase, Gore activates the effect of "King T Wrextle", targeting an Attack Position monster Playmaker controls, and during this Battle Phase, Playmaker cannot attack with other monsters until that one has, and if it does not declare an attack, it is destroyed at the end of the Battle Phase. He targets "Firewall Dragon". Playmaker ends his Battle Phase and "Firewall Dragon" is destroyed.

Turn 5: Gore
Gore Sets a card. Gore activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Dino Domain", and activates its effect, targeting a "Dinowrestler" monster he controls and returning it to the hand, then all face-up monsters he controls are unaffected by the effects of monsters Playmaker controls until the end of this turn. He targets and returns "King T Wrextle" to his Extra Deck. If Gore controls a monster in the Extra Monster Zone, the effect of "Dino Domain" prevents it from being targeted or destroyed by card effects. Gore activates the effect of "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 "Dinowrestler Terra Parkourio" (1000 → 1600/←↑) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to ("Crystal Heart": 1 → 2 G Golem Counters, "Terra Parkourio": 1600 → 2200 ATK). Gore sets "Terra Parkourio" and "Valeonyx" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "King T Wrextle" (3000 → 4200/↙↓↘) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Crystal Heart" points to. As "Terra Parkourio" was sent to the GY as Link Material, Gore activates its effect, targeting a "Dinowrestler" monster in his GY and Special Summoning it in Defense Position, but its effects are negated, also Gore cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except "Dinowrestler" monsters. He targets and Special Summons "Valeonyx" (1600/0). "King T Wrextle" attacks "Linkuriboh" ("King T Wrextle": 4200 → 4400 ATK). During damage calculation, as Playmaker's Link Monster is battling Gore's Link Monster, Playmaker activates the effect of "Cross Debug" in his GY, banishing it, then targeting a Link Monster in his GY, and until the end of this turn, Playmaker's battling Link Monster cannot be destroyed by battle, also it gains ATK equal to the targeted Link Monster's ATK. He banishes "Cross Debug" and targets "Firewall Dragon" ("Linkuriboh": 300 → 2800 ATK). The attack continues and "Linkuriboh" is not destroyed (Playmaker: 2600 → 1000 LP).

Turn 6: Playmaker
Playmaker draws "Grid Sweeper". At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm. As Playmaker's LP is 1000 or less, he activates his Skill "Neo Storm Access", accessing a Cyberse monster at random from a nearby Data Storm and adding it to his Extra Deck. As Playmaker activated a Skill, Gore activates his Skill "Anti Skill", negating the Skill, then drawing two cards. "Neo Storm Access" is negated, then Gore draws two cards. As Gore drew cards except during the Draw Phase, Playmaker activates his face-down Trap "Draw Discharge", reveal the cards Gore drew, then if there are Monster Cards among them, Playmaker inflicts damage to Gore equal to the total ATK of those monsters, then banishes all cards Gore drew. Gore's drawn cards were "Dinowrestler Capoeiraptor" and "Dinowrestler Pankratops", with 1800 and 2600 ATK respectively, but as Playmaker activated a Trap Card while Gore controls a "Dinowrestler" Link Monster, Gore activates his face-down Trap Card "Dino Sense", negating the activation, then banishing that card, then inflicting damage to Playmaker equal to the number of monsters Gore controls x 300. The activation of "Draw Discharge" is negated[Error 1] and it is banished, then as Gore controls three monsters, he inflicts 900 damage to Playmaker (Playmaker: 1000 → 100 LP).

At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm again. As Playmaker's LP is 100 or less, and "Neo Storm Access" did not add a new card to his Extra Deck, he activates the other effect of "Neo Storm Access", accessing a Cyberse monster at random from a nearby Data Storm and adding it to his Extra Deck, then drawing a card. He obtains "Firewall eXceed Dragon", adds it to his Extra Deck, and draws a card.

Playmaker Normal Summons "Firewall Guardian" (100/2000). Playmaker sets "Firewall Guardian" and "Linkuriboh" to Link Summon "Clock Lizard" (1200/↙↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Firewall Guardian" was sent to the GY as Link Material for the Link Summon of a Cyberse monster, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning it (100/2000), but it is banished when it leaves the field. As a Field Spell is face-up on the field, Playmaker activates the effect of "Grid Sweeper" in his hand, Special Summoning it (100/2000).

Playmaker overlays the Level 4 "Grid Sweeper" and "Firewall Guardian" to Xyz Summon the Rank 4 "Firewall eXceed Dragon" (2500/2000, 2 ORU) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Clock Lizard" points to. Playmaker activates the effect of "Firewall eXceed Dragon", detaching two materials from it, then targeting a Link-4 Cyberse Link Monster in his GY to Special Summon it to his field so that it points to "Firewall eXceed Dragon", but for the rest of this turn, Playmaker cannot Special Summon monsters, nor attack directly ("Firewall eXceed Dragon": 2 → 0 ORU). He targets and Special Summons "Firewall Dragon" to the zone to the right of "Firewall eXceed Dragon", so that its left Link Arrow points to "Firewall eXceed Dragon". The effect of the Xyz Summoned "Firewall eXceed Dragon" increases its ATK equal to the total Link Rating of the Link Monsters linked to it times 500. It is linked to the Link-2 "Clock Lizard" and the Link-4 "Firewall Dragon" ("Firewall eXceed Dragon": 2500 → 5500 ATK). Playmaker activates the effect of "Firewall Dragon", targeting monsters on the field and/or GY up to the number of monsters co-linked to "Firewall Dragon" and returning them to the hand. He targets "King T Wrextle", but Gore activates the effect of "Dino Domain", targeting a "Dinowrestler" monster he controls and returning it to the hand, then all face-up monsters he controls are unaffected by the effects of monsters Playmaker controls until the end of this turn. He targets and returns "Valeonyx". The effect of "Firewall Dragon" resolves, but "King T Wrextle" does not return to Gore's Extra Deck. Playmaker activates the effect of "Grid Sweeper" in his GY, banishing it and a Link Monster he controls to destroy a card Gore controls. He banishes "Clock Lizard" ("Firewall eXceed Dragon": 5500 → 4500 ATK) to destroy "World Dino Wrestling".

At the start of Playmaker's Battle Phase, Gore activates the effect of "King T Wrextle", targeting an Attack Position monster Playmaker controls, and during this Battle Phase, Playmaker cannot attack with other monsters until that one has, and if it does not declare an attack, it is destroyed at the end of the Battle Phase. He targets "Firewall Dragon". "Firewall Dragon" attacks "King T Wrextle". As an attack was declared involving Playmaker's Link Monster and Gore's Link Monster, Playmaker activates the effect of "Firewall Guardian" in his GY, banishing it to negate that attack, then until the end of this turn, Gore's monster's original ATK is changed to 0, also it is unaffected by card effects, except its own. The attack of "Firewall Dragon" is negated ("King T Wrextle": 4200 → 0 ATK). "Firewall eXceed Dragon" attacks and destroys "King T Wrextle" (Gore: 4000 → 0 LP).

Errors[edit]

  1. While the activation of "Draw Discharge" was negated, Gore still revealed the two cards he drew, though it is unclear whether he did this due to the effect forcing him to or of his own volition just to show Playmaker that he could've won through the effect damage.
