The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.

Turn 1: Harlin
As there are no monsters in the Main Monster Zones, Harlin Special Summons "Hydradrive Booster" (0/0) from his hand by its own effect. Harlin sets "Hydradrive Booster" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Harlin activates the Spell "Hydradrive Rebuild", targeting a "Hydradrive" monster he controls and destroying it, and if that "Hydradrive" monster destroyed by this effect activates its effect in the GY this turn, Harlin Special Summons a "Hydradrive" monster from his GY, but it cannot attack, its effects are negated, also it is destroyed during the End Phase. He targets and destroys "Coolant Hydradrive". As "Coolant Hydradrive" was destroyed by battle or card effect, Harlin activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. As "Coolant Hydradrive" that was destroyed by the effect of "Hydradrive Rebuild" activated its effect in the GY this turn, Harlin Special Summons "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/↓) from his GY. Harlin activates the Spell "Hydradrive Utilization", paying 500 LP, then targeting a "Hydradrive" monster in his GY to banish it, then add a card with the same name as the banished monster from his Deck to his hand (Harlin: 4000 → 3500 LP). He targets and banishes "Hydradrive Booster", then adds "Hydradrive Booster" from his Deck to his hand. As Harlin's LP is 4000 or lower, he activates his Skill "Marker's Portal", activating a Link Spell directly from his Deck. That Link Spell Card cannot be negated or destroyed by Blue Maiden's card effects. He activates "Judgment Arrows" (↖↑↗) at the Spell & Trap Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Coolant Hydradrive" points to. Harlin Normal Summons "Hydradrive Booster" (0/0). Harlin sets "Hydradrive Booster" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/↓) to a zone "Judgment Arrows" points to. Harlin sets a "Hydradrive Token" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Flow Hydradrive" (1000/↓) to a zone "Judgment Arrows" points to. Harlin sets "Coolant Hydradrive" and "Flow Hydradrive" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Twin Hydradrive Knight" (1800/←→) to a zone "Judgment Arrows" points to. As "Twin Hydradrive Knight" was Link Summoned, Harlin activates its effect, targeting up to two "Hydradrive" Link Monsters in his GY that were used as materials for its Link Summon and making its Attribute on the field become the same as those monsters'. He targets the WATER "Coolant Hydradrive" and the WIND "Flow Hydradrive" and making the Attribute of "Twin Hydradrive Knight" become WIND and WATER. The effect of "Twin Hydradrive Knight" negates the effects of monsters with the same Attribute as it while Blue Maiden controls them. Harlin Sets a card.

Turn 2: Blue Maiden
Blue Maiden Normal Summons "Marincess Sea Horse" (1400/1000). Blue Maiden sets "Sea Horse" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Blue Slug" (1500/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. The effect of the WATER "Twin Hydradrive Knight" negates the effect of the WATER "Blue Slug". Blue Maiden Special Summons her second copy of "Sea Horse" from her hand to a zone her "Marincess" Link Monster points to by its own effect. She Special Summons it (1400/1000) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Blue Slug" points to. Blue Maiden sets "Sea Horse" and "Blue Slug" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Coral Anemone" (2000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Maiden Sets a card. Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Marincess Sea Star" in her hand, sending it to the GY, then targeting a "Marincess" monster she controls to increase its ATK by 800. She targets "Coral Anemone" ("Coral Anemone": 2000 → 2800 ATK). "Coral Anemone" attacks "Coolant Hydradrive". As a Link Monster "Judgment Arrows" points to is battling, its effect makes that monster's ATK become double its current ATK during damage calculation only ("Coolant Hydradrive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). The attack continues and "Coolant Hydradrive" is destroyed (Harlin: 3500 → 2700 LP). As "Coolant Hydradrive" was destroyed by battle or card effect, Harlin activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position.

Turn 3: Harlin
Harlin sets a "Hydradrive Token" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/↓) to a zone "Judgment Arrows" points to. Harlin activates the Equip Spell "Hydradrive Impact", equipping it to "Coolant Hydradrive". If Blue Maiden controls a monster, the effect of "Hydradrive Impact" makes any battle damage the equipped "Coolant Hydradrive" inflicts to her by a direct attack become doubled. The effect of "Hydradrive Impact" forces the equipped "Coolant Hydradrive" to attack. As Blue Maiden controls a WATER monster, the effect of "Coolant Hydradrive" allows it to attack directly. Blue Maiden controls the WATER "Coral Anemone". "Coolant Hydradrive" attacks Blue Maiden directly. As Blue Maiden controls a "Marincess" Link Monster, she activates her face-down Trap "Marincess Wave", targeting a face-up monster Harlin controls and negating its effects until the end of this turn, then if Blue Maiden controls a Link-2 or higher "Marincess" Link Monster, all face-up monsters she currently controls will be unaffected by Harlin's card effects until the end of this turn. She targets and negates the effects of "Coolant Hydradrive", then as she controls the Link-2 "Coral Anemone", "Coral Anemone" becomes unaffected by Harlin's card effects until the end of this turn. A replay occurs and "Coolant Hydradrive" attacks "Coral Anemone". As a Link Monster "Judgment Arrows" points to is battling, its effect makes that monster's ATK become double its current ATK during damage calculation only ("Coolant Hydradrive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). The attack continues and "Coolant Hydradrive" is destroyed (Harlin: 2700 → 1900 LP). As "Coolant Hydradrive" was destroyed by battle or card effect, Harlin activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. "Twin Hydradrive Knight" attacks "Coral Anemone". As a Link Monster "Judgment Arrows" points to is battling, its effect makes that monster's ATK become double its current ATK during damage calculation only ("Twin Hydradrive Knight": 1800 → 3600 ATK). The attack continues and "Coral Anemone" is destroyed (Blue Maiden: 4000 → 3200 LP). As "Coral Anemone" was sent to the GY, Blue Maiden activates its effect, targeting a "Marincess" card in her GY and adding it to her hand. She targets and adds "Wave" to her hand. As Harlin's "Hydradrive" Link Monster destroyed Blue Maiden's monster by battle, he activates his face-down Trap "Hydradrive Nightmare", targeting a "Hydradrive" Link Monster in his GY and Tributing a monster, then Special Summoning that target, but its effects are negated, also it is destroyed during the End Phase. He targets "Coolant Hydradrive", Tributes a "Hydradrive Token", and Special Summons "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000/↓) to a zone "Judgment Arrows" points to. "Coolant Hydradrive" attacks Blue Maiden directly. As a Link Monster "Judgment Arrows" points to is battling, its effect makes that monster's ATK become double its current ATK during damage calculation only ("Coolant Hydradrive": 1000 → 2000 ATK). The attack continues (Blue Maiden: 3200 → 1200 LP). As Blue Maiden took battle damage, she activates her Skill "Shape of Sea", Special Summoning a WATER monster from her GY whose ATK is less than or equal to the damage taken. She took 2000 damage, so she Special Summons "Coral Anemone" (2000/←↓). During the End Phase, "Coolant Hydradrive" is destroyed. As "Coolant Hydradrive" was destroyed by battle or card effect, Harlin activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Hydradrive Token" (0/0) in Defense Position.

Turn 4: Blue Maiden
Blue Maiden Normal Summons her third copy of "Sea Horse" (1400/1000). Blue Maiden sets "Sea Horse" and the Link-2 "Coral Anemone" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Marbled Rock" (2500/←↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Coral Anemone" was sent to the GY, Blue Maiden activates its effect, targeting a "Marincess" card in her GY and adding it to her hand. She targets and adds "Sea Star" to her hand. As Blue Maiden controls a Link-3 or higher "Marincess" Link Monster, she activates "Wave" from her hand, targeting a face-up monster Harlin controls and negating its effects until the end of this turn, then if Blue Maiden controls a Link-2 or higher "Marincess" Link Monster, all face-up monsters she currently controls will be unaffected by Harlin's card effects until the end of this turn. She targets and negates the effects of "Twin Hydradrive Knight", then as she controls the Link-3 "Marbled Rock", "Marbled Rock" becomes unaffected by Harlin's card effects until the end of this turn. Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Sea Star" in her hand, sending it to the GY, then targeting a "Marincess" monster she controls to increase its ATK by 800. She targets "Marbled Rock" ("Marbled Rock": 2500 → 3300 ATK). Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Marbled Rock", targeting a "Marincess" card in her GY and adding it to her hand. She targets and adds "Sea Star", then subsequently activates its effect in her hand, sending it to the GY, then targeting a "Marincess" monster she controls to increase its ATK by 800. She targets "Marbled Rock" ("Marbled Rock": 3300 → 4100 ATK). "Marbled Rock" attacks "Twin Hydradrive Knight". As a Link Monster "Judgment Arrows" points to is battling, its effect makes that monster's ATK become double its current ATK during damage calculation only ("Twin Hydradrive Knight": 1800 → 3600 ATK). The attack continues and "Twin Hydradrive Knight" is destroyed (Harlin: 1900 → 1400 LP). As Blue Maiden's "Marincess" Link Monster destroyed an opponent's monster by battle, and she controls a Link-3 or higher "Marincess" Link Monster, she activates her Trap "Marincess Current", inflicting damage to Harlin equal the Link Rating of that monster Blue Maiden controls times 400, then if Blue Maiden controls a Link-2 or higher "Marincess" Link Monster and she destroyed Harlin's Link Monster by that battle, Blue Maiden inflicts damage to Harlin equal the destroyed monster's Link Rating times 500. "Marbled Rock" is Link-3, so she inflicts 1200 damage to Harlin (Harlin: 1400 → 200 LP), and "Twin Hydradrive Knight" is Link-2, so she then inflicts 1000 damage to Harlin (Harlin: 200 → 0 LP).
