"Proud Maiden" is the ninety-first episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on February 27, 2019.

Through the data of his battles up to now, Bohman has adopted even stronger strategies, and with his evolved "Hydradrive" monsters he drives Blue Maiden into a corner. However, Blue Maiden refuses to give up, and keeps on fighting. With her conviction remaining unbroken, what kind of tactic will Blue Maiden use?!

Summary[edit]

Blue Maiden reminds Aqua that it's not that Bohman can prevent effect damage two "more" times, it's "only" twice, while she isn't limited to only dealing effect damage twice. Her LP stands on 1900, while she controls "Marincess Bubble Blast", the 1400 ATK "Marincess Sea Horse" and the 0 ATK "Marincess Crystal Heart", while Bohman is still on 4000 LP and controls the 2300 ATK "Cubed Hydradrive Lord", "Judgment Arrows" and "Interference Canceller". Blue Maiden chants "Shine! The circuit of friendship and bonds!" and explains that the Summoning conditions are one Level 4 or lower "Marincess" monster, setting "Sea Horse" to Link Summon the Link-1 "Marincess Blue Slug". Bohman reminds Blue Maiden that "Blue Slug" and "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" are both WATER, so the effects of "Blue Slug" will be negated, and he declares "Property Zero" as "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" releases a blue energy serpent, snaring "Blue Slug" and surrounding her with a ghostly aura. Blue Maiden states that since "Blue Slug" was Special Summoned to a zone "Crystal Heart" points to, the effect of "Marincess Bubble Blast" will activate, inflicting 500 damage to Bohman equal to their combined Link Rating. Their total is 3, so Bohman will take 1500 damage. Bohman declares that the effect of "Interference Canceller" will reduce the damage to zero, and Blue Maiden thinks that there's only one time left now. Blue Maiden explains that when there are at least two "Marincess" Link Monsters on the field she can Special Summon "Marincess Mandarin" from her Graveyard to her zone a "Marincess" Link Monster points to. Bohman declares "Property Zero", negating the effects of "Mandarin", and the blue energy serpent materializes and ensnares "Mandarin", shrouding her in the ghostly aura. Blue Maiden declares that the effect of "Bubble Blast" will inflict 1500 damage to Bohman, who reminds her that the effect of "Interference Canceller" will reduce the damage to zero. Blue Maiden thinks to herself that this is the third time; the effect of "Interference Canceller" will no longer be applying this turn and if she uses "Mandarin" to Link Summon, the total Link Rating on her field will be 4, so the effect of "Bubble Blast" will inflict 2000 damage to Bohman, and if she uses her monsters to Summon a Link-2 monster, the effect of "Bubble Blast" will activate again and inflict 2000 more damage to Bohman, reducing his LP to zero.

Blue Maiden refuses to give up.

But Bohman smiles and he activates the effect of "Hydradrive Mutation" from his hand, returning a Continuous Trap Card he controls to his hand to Special Summon it. Then he can Set a Continuous Trap from his hand, and he can activate that card the turn it is Set. He activates "Interference Canceller", and Aqua warns Blue Maiden that this is very bad; Bohman can prevent effect damage three more times now. Blue Maiden grits her teeth, and Bohman warns her that he knows everything they're planning. Blue Maiden retorts that she told him that she wouldn't give up, and she chants "Shine! The circuit of friendship and bonds!" She declares that the Summoning conditions are two WATER monsters, setting "Blue Slug" and "Mandarin" to Link Summon the Link-2 "Marincess Coral Anemone". Bohman declares "Property Zero", and "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" releases the blue energy serpent, which coils around "Coral Anemone" and negates its effects. Blue Maiden states that the total Link Rating of "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" is 4, so Bohman will take 2000 damage due to the effect of "Bubble Blast"; Bohman replies that the damage will be reduced to zero due to the effect of "Interference Canceller".

Bohman admits that he is thankful to Blue Maiden for defeating Harlan.

Aqua meanwhile is recalling her statement that Bohman would strike at them with anger and hatred in addition to his show of power, but Bohman's Dueling has been precise and calculating. Blue Maiden Sets a card and ends her turn, and "Bubble Blast" is destroyed at the end of the turn. Aqua asks Bohman if he knows that they are the ones who defeated his brother Harlan, and Bohman confirms that he does. Aqua asks if he doesn't hate them; why won't he strike them down with those emotions? Is Blue Maiden right when she claims Bohman is emotionless? Bohman claims that it's the opposite, and he turns his head away from them and sheds a single tear, much to Aqua and Blue Maiden's shock. Bohman admits that he is thankful towards them, and Blue Maiden asks "Thankful?" in surprise. Bohman explains that when they defeated Harlan, he was able to know anger, hatred and sadness, and by learning those emotions he was able to make great strides. Blue Maiden is shocked that Bohman is thankful that his brother was defeated, but Aqua states that Bohman is telling the truth; his heart overflows with feelings for his brother.

Bohman declares that he's fighting alongside Harlan, who is in his heart, and he declares his turn and draws, then activates the effect of "Hydradrive Mutation", targeting one monster on the field and becoming the same Attribute. He selects "Crystal Heart", and "Mutation" changes its aura from EARTH to WATER. Then Bohman activates the Spell Card "Property Flood", Tributing "Mutation" and targeting "Cubed Hydradrive Lord"; since it is Link-3, he can Special Summon three WATER Link Monsters from his Graveyard with their effects negated. Blue Maiden grits her teeth as Bohman revives the three "Coolant Hydradrives" in his Graveyard, then he chants "Appear! The circuit that determines the truth!" He explains that the Summoning conditions are four "Hydradrive" Link Monsters with the same Attribute, and sets all four of his monsters (the three "Coolants" and "Cubed"). As he and Flame watch, Soulburner is shocked that Bohman is using "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" to Link Summon, as Bohman Link Summons the Link-4 "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch". Ai is shocked to see a Link-4, and Playmaker declares that it's Bohman's new ace monster.

Zaizen's sign-in is blocked by Bohman.

Meanwhile in LINK VRAINS, the network is still glitching and SOL Technologies continue to apologize for LINK VRAINS' continued instability, asking the user to wait while they fix it. But the users aren't happy that they can't log out and are storming outside Central Station in LINK VRAINS, ordering SOL Technologies to fix the problem. Inside, Zaizen and Ghost Gal take an elevator to the basement of Central Station. Ghost Gal asks why they've come here, and Zaizen explains that they'll use the emergency evacuation restart to log out everyone's Avatars by force. They enter a room with a square pedestal with a monitor set into it, and as Zaizen approaches the LV Central Control it shows his face. Back in Mirror LINK VRAINS, Bohman senses Zaizen's actions in surprise, and he murmurs Akira Zaizen's name. To his shock, Zaizen gets a sign-in error and Ghost Gal muses that it's been completely taken over. Zaizen begins to protest about the circuit, but then the screen changes to show them Bohman and Blue Maiden, and Zaizen realizes that Bohman is telling him to watch. Zaizen frowns as he looks at his sister, and he tells Skye that she has to win if her destiny is to be involved, and create her own.

Bohman explains that when "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" is Special Summoned, it is treated as WATER, FIRE and WIND Attribute in addition to its original EARTH Attribute. Energy serpents twist around "Tesseract's" three swords and shield as Bohman activates the effect of "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" since it was sent to the Graveyard for a Link Summon, drawing a card. Then the "Property Zero" effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" activates, and it releases the blue energy serpent from its sword and ensnares "Coral Anemone", cloaking it in the ghostly aura. Blue Maiden notes that "Tesseract" has the same negation effect as Bohman's other monsters as she expected, and Aqua notes that now the effects of "Coral Anemone" are negated. Blue Maiden notes that as long as "Crystal Heart" is in the Extra Monster Zone it's unaffected by Bohman's monster's effects. Bohman orders "Tesseract" to attack "Crystal Heart", and Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Crystal Heart" as it was targeted for an attack, sending a "Marincess" monster from her hand to the Graveyard ("Marincess Crown Tail") to prevent "Crystal Heart" from being destroyed and reducing the battle damage to zero. "Crystal Heart" generates its energy shield, repelling "Tesseract".

Blue Maiden begins to panic as she fears she has lost.

Bohman then activates the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" since it attacked; Blue Maiden must send a monster on her field with the same Attribute to her Graveyard. Blue Maiden scowls as Ghost Gal notes that while "Crystal Heart" is unaffected by monsters' effects, this effect affects the player. Zaizen grits his teeth as Bohman explains that when Blue Maiden's monster is sent to the Graveyard, "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" will be allowed to attack again. Ai protests that sending a monster to the Graveyard and attacking again is too much, and Blue Maiden thinks to herself that if "Crystal Heart" is sent to the Graveyard, the effect of "Judgment Arrows" will apply again and double Bohman's monster's ATK. But if "Coral Anemone" is sent to the Graveyard, she'll only have the 0 ATK "Crystal Heart". She clenches her fist; she has no cards in her hand and she can't use effects. Playmaker agrees that no matter the monster she chooses, Blue Maiden can't win. Aqua tells Blue Maiden that this is the critical moment and she asks her not to give up. Zaizen begs Skye to calm down; there must be a way, she just has to think. Blue Maiden begins to breath heavily, trying to hold back panic as Bohman's image begins to dwarf her. She remembers the last time she saw Miyu, and she apologizes to her; it's over for Blue Maiden.

Blue Maiden banishes her monsters, avoiding the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch".

Zaizen screams at Skye not to give up, and Skye gasps in shock and whispers "brother..." as she returns to reality. Realization strike Blue Maiden, and she declares that she still has a way. She activates a Trap Card, "Marincess Cascade", banishing all "Marincess" Link Monsters she controls. She then selects a monster on the field, and increases its ATK by the total Link Ratings of the banished monsters times 300 until the end of the turn. "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" rises to 4200, and Blue Maiden states that the banished monsters will return to the field on the next turn. Ai asks what the point of raising the ATK of "Tesseract" was, and Playmaker explains that it wasn't Blue Maiden's intention; her true goal was to banish her monsters; by banishing them before they could be sent to the Graveyard, she was able to prevent the second attack of "Tesseract". Zaizen says Skye's name in relief, and Bohman Sets a card, ending his turn. The effect of "Marincess Cascade" ends, and the ATK of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" returns to normal. Blue Maiden thanks her brother; she was almost about to break, and Bohman reflects that this is the bond between siblings.

Blue Maiden vows not to give up anymore, and she declares her turn and draws. The two monsters that "Marincess Cascade" banished return to the field, and Bohman immediately declares the "Property Zero" effect of "Tesseract", surrounding both "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" with the ghostly aura as their effects are negated. Blue Maiden activates the Field Spell Card "Marincess Battle Ocean" from her hand, increasing the ATK of all "Marincess" monsters by 200. "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" rise to 200 and 2200 ATK respectively, but Blue Maiden then chants "Shine! The circuit of friendship and bonds!" She declares that the Summoning conditions are at least two WATER monsters, including "Crystal Heart", and sets both "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" to Link Summon the Link-4 "Marincess Wonder Heart". Bohman apologizes, but the effects of "Wonder Heart" will also be negated. But Blue Maiden refuses to let that happen, and she explains that the effect of "Marincess Battle Ocean" will prevent "Marincess" Link Monsters that were Link Summoned using "Crystal Heart" as Link Material from being affected by Bohman's card effects. The blue serpent is deflected by an energy shield, and Blue Maiden adds that "Wonder Heart" will gain 200 ATK due to the effect of "Battle Ocean". "Wonder Heart" rises to 2600 ATK, but Blue Maiden warns Bohman that it's not over yet; when a "Marincess" Link Monster is Special Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone, the effect of "Battle Ocean" allows her to select up to three "Marincess" Link Monsters in her Graveyard with different Link Ratings and equip them to the Summoned monster. She tells "Blue Slug", "Coral Anemone" and "Marbled Rock" to resurrect, and their forms disappear into "Wonder Heart" to power her up. Blue Maiden explains that when "Battle Ocean" equips monsters, the equipped monster gains 300 ATK times the total Link Ratings of the equipped monsters. Aqua states that the equipped monsters have a total Link Rating of six, so "Wonder Heart" gains 1800 ATK, rising to 4400, more ATK than "Tesseract" as Soulburner notes. Blue Maiden then activates the effect of the other "Coral Anemone" in her Graveyard as it was sent to the Graveyard, adding a "Marincess" from her Graveyard to her hand.

"Marincess Wonder Heart" Special Summons the equipped "Marincess Marbled Rock".

She declares her Battle Phase, ordering "Wonder Heart" to attack "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch". As "Wonder Heart" materializes a large blade out of water, Bohman asks if Blue Maiden forgot that "Judgment Arrows" will double the ATK of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch", but Blue Maiden replies that the effect of "Wonder Heart" will prevent Bohman's monsters from being affected by his other cards' effects. Bohman stares in shock as "Wonder Heart" bisects "Tesseract", destroying it and reducing Bohman to 2600 LP. Blue Maiden explains that after "Wonder Heart" battles, she can Special Summon one of the equipped "Marincess" Link Monsters with its effects negated, and she Special Summons "Marbled Rock", reducing "Wonder Heart" to 3500 ATK. The effect of "Battle Ocean" increases the ATK of "Marbled Rock" by 200, to 2700, and Zaizen tells Skye to go. Blue Maiden orders "Marbled Rock" to attack Bohman directly, and "Marbled Rock" leaps through the air and slashes at Bohman, engulfing him in smoke. Blue Maiden declares that it's over.

Bohman survives Blue Maiden's attacks.

But to her shock when the smoke clears, Bohman is still standing, and Blue Maiden asks why. Bohman tells her that it's too bad, but due to his face-down "Hydradrive Tolerance", since "Tesseract" was destroyed this turn and sent to his Graveyard, he reduced the battle damage he took by 300 times its Link Rating, for a total of 1200, leaving him with 1100 LP, and due to the effect of "Tolerance", he doesn't take any further damage this turn. Blue Maiden clenches her fist and she activates the effect of "Wonder Heart", re-equipping "Marbled Rock" to it and thus increasing its ATK by 900 again, back to 4400. Blue Maiden ends her turn, thinking that she can still win, and Bohman tells her that her indomitable fighting spirit is admirable, but she hasn't realized that she's defeated herself. Now that she's destroyed "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch", his victory is certain.

Bohman revives "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" with its ATK doubled.

He declares his turn and draws, then he activates the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch", paying 1000 LP to Special Summon it from his Graveyard with its ATK doubled. His LP falls to 100 and "Tesseract" emerges from the Graveyard portal, its ATK increasing to 6000. Blue Maiden gasps the ATK value in shock, and Bohman reminds Blue Maiden that when "Tesseract" is Special Summoned it is treated as WATER, FIRE and WIND in addition to EARTH-Attribute. He declares "Property Zero", but Blue Maiden reminds him that the effect of "Battle Ocean" will prevent "Wonder Heart" from being affected by Bohman's effects, and the blue energy shield repels the blue energy serpent. Bohman orders "Tesseract" to attack "Wonder Heart", and Ai notes that the effect of "Wonder Heart" will prevent the effect of "Judgment Arrows" from activating. Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Wonder Heart", preventing its destruction in battle and reducing the battle damage to zero. "Wonder Heart" dodges "Tesseract's" strikes, and Blue Maiden states that she must then Special Summon the equipped "Blue Slug" with its effects negated. "Blue Slug" appears, rising to 1700 ATK while "Wonder Heart" falls to 4100 ATK. Bohman then activates the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch", forcing Blue Maiden to send a monster she controls with the same Attribute as "Tesseract" to the Graveyard. Blue Maiden scowls, noting that it's this effect again, and Bohman tells her to choose. Blue Maiden chooses "Blue Slug", who disintegrates, and Bohman declares that since the effect sent a monster to the Graveyard, "Tesseract" can attack a monster again. He attacks "Wonder Heart" again, and again the effect of "Wonder Heart" fends it off with an energy shield, then Blue Maiden Special Summons the equipped "Coral Anemone" with its effects negated. "Coral Anemone" materializes, rising to 2200 ATK, and "Wonder Heart" falls to 3500 ATK. Bohman activates the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" again, ordering Blue Maiden to send one monster to the Graveyard. Blue Maiden grits her teeth, and Ai worriedly asks if this will loop forever. Blue Maiden chooses to send "Coral Anemone", which activates its effect, allowing Blue Maiden to add "Sea Horse" from her Graveyard to her hand. Once again, "Tesseract" attacks "Wonder Heart", and once again "Wonder Heart" deflects its attack with an energy field, and Blue Maiden Special Summons the equipped "Marbled Rock" with its effects negated. "Marbled Rock" rises to 2700 ATK, while the ATK of "Wonder Heart" falls all the way to 2600. Bohman activates the effect of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" again, telling Blue Maiden to choose her next monster. Blue Maiden grits her teeth, and she sends "Marbled Rock" to the Graveyard. Soulburner scowls, noting that everything equipped to "Wonder Heart" has been removed. Zaizen watches in horror as Bohman warns Blue Maiden that now she has nothing left to protect her ace monster.

"Tesseract" attacks "Wonder Heart" again, but Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Crown Tail", sending another "Marincess" monster ("Sea Horse") from her hand to the Graveyard to halve the battle damage. "Wonder Heart" is destroyed and liquefied, but Blue Maiden manages to survive with 200 LP, then she Special Summons "Crown Tail", who rises to 800 ATK due to the effect of "Battle Ocean". Then Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Wonder Heart" as it was destroyed, Special Summoning "Crystal Heart" from her Graveyard, which rises to 200 ATK. Bohman declares the effect of "Tesseract", and Blue Maiden sends "Crown Tail" to the Graveyard, allowing Bohman to attack again. She asks Bohman what's wrong, and tells him to hurry up and attack. Bohman does so, attacking "Crystal Heart" with "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" and Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Crown Tail" from her Graveyard, banishing it to reduce the total battle damage she takes by the total Link Rating of all "Marincess" Link Monsters in her Graveyard times 1000. Aqua notes that they have "Wonder Heart", "Marbled Rock", "Coral Anemone" and "Blue Slug" in their Graveyard, with a total Link Rating of 10, and Blue Maiden finishes that they can negate 10000 points of battle damage.

Bohman watches them silently, and Blue Maiden admits that it's not enough and she apologizes to Aqua. Aqua replies that Blue Maiden fought excellently, and she reassures Blue Maiden that she is proud to be her partner. Blue Maiden thanks Aqua as the ATK of "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" rises to 12000, and it cuts down "Crystal Heart", engulfing it in water, shattering it and reducing Blue Maiden's LP to zero, knocking her backwards with a scream.

Blue Maiden is erased as Zaizen runs to her.

Zaizen screams Skye's name as she lands in a crouch, and Bohman observes that Blue Maiden knew she would lose, but she still gave it her all until the end. He tells her that was beautiful, and as Blue Maiden scowls at him, Bohman reflects that he wasn't given the opportunity to say goodbye to someone dear, but he'll give her that time, and this is his compassion. Golden light radiates from his body, and Zaizen's image appears before him. He gasps Skye's name, and Blue Maiden is surprised to see her brother. Zaizen runs to Blue Maiden, calling her real name, and Blue Maiden remembers their shared childhood and their reforged bonding during the Tower of Hanoi crisis as Zaizen reaches her and she falls into his arms, weakly calling "brother..." as she disintegrates into blue data. In the LV Control Center, Ghost Gal can only watch as Zaizen falls to his knees and sobs with empty arms.

Featured Duel: Blue Maiden vs. Bohman[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Blue Maiden has 1900 LP and controls "Marincess Crystal Heart" (0/↙↘) in the Extra Monster Zone and "Marincess Sea Horse", in Attack Position, in her Main Monster Zone "Crystal Heart" points to, as well as "Marincess Bubble Blast" in her Spell & Trap Zone. Bohman has 4000 LP and controls "Cubed Hydradrive Lord" (2300/←↓→) in his Main Monster Zone, as well as "Judgment Arrows" (that is co-linked to "Cubed Hydradrive Lord") and "Interference Canceller" in his Spell & Trap Zone.

Turn 3: Blue Maiden
Blue Maiden sets "Marincess Sea Horse" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Blue Slug" (1500/↓). As it is the same Attribute as "Cubed Hydradrive Lord", the effect of "Lord" negates the effects of "Blue Slug". As a "Marincess" monster was Normal or Special Summoned to a zone that "Marincess Crystal Heart" points to, the effect of "Marincess Bubble Blast" activates, inflicting damage to Bohman equal to the Link Rating of the targeted monster and the monsters linked to it times 500, but the effect of "Interference Canceller" makes the damage 0. As she controls two or more "Marincess" Link Monsters, Blue Maiden activates the effect of the "Marincess Mandarin" in her GY, Special Summoning it (100/100) in Attack Position. Its effects are negated by "Lord". "Bubble Blast" activates, but the damage is reduced to 0 by "Interference Canceller".

Bohman activates the effect of the "Hydradrive Mutation" in his hand, returning a face-up Continuous Trap Card on his field to his hand to Special Summon "Mutation", then Set a Continuous Trap from his hand, which can be activated this turn. He returns "Interference Canceller" to Special Summon "Mutation" (0/0), Set and then activate "Interference Canceller" again, targeting the co-linked "Lord". Blue Maiden Sets "Blue Slug" and "Mandarin" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Coral Anemone" (2000/←↓). Its effects are negated by "Lord". "Bubble Blast" activates, with "Interference Canceller" reducing the damage to 0. Blue Maiden Sets a card. During the End Phase, the effect of "Bubble Blast" destroys itself.

Turn 4: Bohman
Bohman activates the effect of "Mutation", letting him change its Attribute to that of another monster on the field. He changes it to the WATER Attribute of "Crystal Heart". Bohman then activates "Property Flood", Tributing a "Hydradrive" monster to target a "Hydradrive" Link Monster he controls with the same Attribute and Special Summon "Hydradrive" Link Monsters from his GY with the same Attribute as the Tributed monster, up to the targeted monster's Link Rating. The Summoned monsters will have their effects negated, they cannot attack, and they will be destroyed during the End Phase. He Tributes "Mutation", targets "Lord", and Special Summons three copies of "Coolant Hydradrive" (1000). Bohman sets his four "Hydradrive" Link Monsters with the same Attribute in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Tesseract Hydradrive Monarch" (3000/←↙↘→). When it is Special Summoned, its Attribute is also treated as WATER, FIRE and WIND. The effect of "Lord" activates as it was sent to the GY as a Link Material, letting Bohman draw a card. The effect of "Tesseract" negates the effects of monsters with the same Attribute as it, so "Coral Anemone" has its effects negated, but "Crystal Heart" is unaffected by Bohman's monsters' effects as long as it is in the Extra Monster Zone.

"Tesseract" attacks "Crystal Heart", but Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Crystal Heart", sending a "Marincess" monster from her hand to the GY to prevent its destruction by battle and prevent the battle damage. She sends "Marincess Crown Tail". The effect of "Tesseract" activates, as it attacked, forcing Blue Maiden to send a monster from her field with the same Attribute as "Tesseract" to the GY, then "Tesseract" can attack a monster again. Blue Maiden activates her face-down "Marincess Cascade", banishing all "Marincess" Link Monsters she controls until her next Standby Phase, then increasing the ATK of all monsters on the field equal to the total Link Rating of the banished monsters until the end of the turn. She banishes "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" ("Tesseract": 3000 → 4200). The effect of "Tesseract" resolves with no effect as there is no target. Bohman Sets a card.

Turn 5: Blue Maiden
During the Standby Phase, "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" return to the field. The effect of "Tesseract" negates the effects of "Coral Anemone" and "Crystal Heart". Blue Maiden activates the Field Spell Card, "Marincess Battle Ocean", increasing the ATK of all "Marincess" Link Monsters by 200 ("Crystal Heart": 0 → 200, " Anemone": 2000 → 2200). Blue Maiden sets "Crystal Heart" and "Coral Anemone" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Wonder Heart" (2400 → 2600/←↙↘→). As "Crystal Heart" was used as a material for a "Marincess" Link Monster, the effect of "Battle Ocean" renders the Summoned monster unaffected by the opponent's card effects, so the effects of "Wonder Heart" are not negated by "Tesseract". As a "Marincess" Link Monster was Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone, the effect of "Battle Ocean" activates, letting Blue Maiden equip up to three "Marincess" Link Monsters with different Link Ratings from her GY to it. She equips "Blue Slug", "Coral Anemone" and "Marincess Marbled Rock" to "Wonder Heart". The other effect of "Battle Ocean" increases the ATK of the equipped monster by the total Link Arrows of the monsters equipped times 300 ("Wonder Heart": 2600 → 4400). The effect of the "Coral Anemone" used as a Link Material activates as it was sent to the GY, letting Blue Maiden add a "Marincess" card from her GY to her hand.

"Wonder Heart" attacks "Tesseract", with "Wonder Heart" making the monster it battles unaffected by other card effects, so the effect of "Judgment Arrows" does not increase the ATK of "Tesseract". "Tesseract" is destroyed (Bohman: 4000 → 2600). The effect of "Wonder Heart" activates as it battled, letting Blue Maiden Special Summon one of the equipped "Marincess" monsters with its effects negated. She Special Summons "Marbled Rock" (2500 → 2700/←↓→), "Wonder Heart": 4400 → 3500). "Marbled Rock" attacks directly, but Bohman activates his face-down "Hydradrive Tolerance", targeting a "Hydradrive" Link Monster in his GY that was destroyed and sent there this turn to reduce the battle damage by its Link Rating times 300. He targets "Tesseract" (Bohman: 2600 → 1100). "Tolerance" also prevents Bohman from taking further battle or effect damage until the End Phase. During the End Phase, the effect of "Wonder Heart" equips the Special Summoned "Marbled Rock" to it (4400 → 3500).

Turn 6: Bohman
Bohman activates the effect of "Tesseract", paying 1000 LP to Special Summon it and double its ATK (3000 → 6000). As it was Special Summoned, it is treated as also being WATER, FIRE, and WIND Attribute. The effects of "Wonder Heart" are not negated by the effect of "Tesseract" due to "Battle Ocean". "Tesseract" attacks "Wonder Heart", with "Wonder Heart" making "Tesseract" unaffected by other card effects, preventing the ATK increase from "Judgment Arrows". The effect of "Wonder Heart" activates as it battled, preventing its destruction and making the battle damage 0 by Special Summoning a "Marincess" Link Monster equipped to it. She Special Summons "Blue Slug" (1500 → 1700/↓), "Wonder Heart": 4400 → 4100). The effect of "Tesseract" activates as it battled, forcing Blue Maiden to send a monster of the same Attribute to the GY and let "Tesseract" attack again. She sends "Blue Slug" and "Tesseract" attacks "Wonder Heart", with Blue Maiden Special Summoning "Coral Anemone" (2000 → 2200/←↓, "Wonder Heart": 4100 → 3500). The effect of "Tesseract" activates and Blue Maiden sends "Coral Anemone", whose effect activates, letting Blue Maiden add a "Marincess" card in her GY to her hand. She adds "Sea Horse". "Tesseract" attacks "Wonder Heart", with Blue Maiden Special Summoning "Marbled Rock" (2500 → 2700/←↓→, "Wonder Heart": 3500 → 2600). The effect of "Tesseract" activates and Blue Maiden sends "Marbled Rock".

"Tesseract" attacks and destroys "Wonder Heart". During damage calculation, Blue Maiden activates the effect of the "Crown Tail" in her hand as a "Marincess" monster is battling. She can reveal "Crown Tail" and send another "Marincess" monster from her hand to the GY to halve the battle damage and Special Summon "Crown Tail". She sends "Sea Horse" (Blue Maiden: 1900 → 200) and Special Summons "Crown Tail" (600 → 800/2300) in Attack Position. The effect of "Wonder Heart" activates as it was destroyed, letting Blue Maiden Special Summon "Crystal Heart" (0 → 200) from her GY. Bohman activates the effect of "Tesseract" and Blue Maiden sends "Crown Tail". "Tesseract" attacks "Crystal Heart", but Blue Maiden activates the effect of the "Crown Tail" in her GY, banishing it to prevent all battle damage this turn if the amount is less than or equal to the total Link Rating of all "Marincess" Link Monsters in her GY with different names times 1000. The total Link Rating is 10, so up to 10,000 battle damage is prevented. The effect of "Judgment Arrows" doubles the ATK of "Tesseract" (6000 → 12000, Blue Maiden: 200 → 0).
