"Lightning's Crime" is the ninety-sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on April 3, 2019.
In order to lure Lightning to himself, the leader of the Knights of Hanoi, Varis, reveals the sin Lightning has committed as well as the real reason why he made Bohman. The calm and collected Lightning is now filled with rage, and challenges him to a Duel.
Featured Duel: Varis vs. Lightning
This Duel is conducted as a Master Duel.
Turn 1: Lightning
Lightning Normal Summons "Armatos Legio Gladius" (0/800) and activates its effect: when it is Normal Summoned, Lightning can add "Armatos Colosseum" from his Deck to his hand. Lightning activates the Field Spell "Armatos Colosseum" and activates its effect: when it is activated, Lightning can add 1 "Armatos Legio" monster from his Deck to his hand. He adds "Armatos Legio Speculata". Lightning sets "Gladius" (a Level 4 or lower "Armatos Legio" monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Decurion" (1000/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Lightning activates the second effect of "Armatos Colosseum", letting him send a Level 4 or lower "Armatos Legio" monster from his hand to the GY, then target an "Armatos Legio" Link Monster he controls to Special Summon as many "Armatos Legio" monsters as possible with different names from each other and the monster sent to the GY to activate this effect in Defense Position to his zones that Link Monster points to. He sends the Level 1 "Armatos Legio Sica" from his hand to the GY, targets "Decurion", and Special Summons "Gladius" to the Main Monster Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Decurion" points to. Lightning sends "Armatos Legio Segmentata" from his hand to his GY to Special Summon "Armatos Legio Speculata" (0/1800) in Defense Position from his hand by its own effect. Lightning sets "Gladius" and "Speculata" (2 "Armatos Legio" monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Centurion" (1700/←→) to the Main Monster Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Decurion" points to. Lightning then sets "Decurion" and the Link-2 "Centurion" (2 or more "Armatos Legio" Link Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Plumbum Trident" (1100/↖↑↗) to the Extra Monster Zone. While it is in the Extra Monster Zone, the ATK of "Plumbum Trident" are doubled, due to its own effect ("Plumbum Trident": 1100→2200 ATK). Lightning sets a card.
Turn 2: Varis
Varis activates the Field Spell "Boot Sector Launch", and then activates its effect, allowing him to Special Summon up to 2 "Rokket" monsters with different names from his hand in Defense Position. He Special Summons "Anesthrokket Dragon" (0/2200) and "Magnarokket Dragon" (1800/1200), both in Defense Position. Due to the effect of "Boot Sector Launch", all "Rokket" monsters on the field gain 300 ATK/DEF ("Anesthrokket": 0/2200→300/2500, "Magnarokket": 1800/1200→2100/1500). Varis sets "Anesthrokket" and "Magnarokket" (2 "Rokket" monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Booster Dragon" (1900/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Since his opponent controls a Link Monster, Varis Special Summons "Gateway Dragon" (1600/1400) from his hand in Attack Position by its own effect. Varis activates "Cross Linkage Hack", which allows him to draw 2 cards so long as a non-Link Monster he controls is Linked with a Link Monster he controls and a Link Monster his opponent controls. Varis activates the effect of "Gateway Dragon", allowing him to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower DARK Dragon monster from his hand. Varis Special Summons "Autorokket Dragon" (1600/1000 → 1900/1300) in Attack Position. Lightning activates the Continuous Trap "Armatos Gloria"; while it is face-up on the field, other cards on the field cannot be destroyed by card effects, and neither player can banish cards on the field. Varis sets "Gateway Dragon", "Autorokket Dragon", and the Link-2 "Booster Dragon" (3 or more Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Borreload Dragon" (3000/←↙↘→) to the Extra Monster Zone.
