Featured Duel: Ai vs. Pandor[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Pandor has 4000 LP and controls no cards. Ai has 4000 LP and controls "Dark Templar @Ignister" (2300/↙↓↘) in the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side, and "Fire Phoenix @Ignister" (2300/←↓→) in his Main Monster Zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Dark Templar" points to, as well as 2 Set cards in his Spell & Trap Zones and "Ignister A.I.Land" in his Field Zone.

Turn 2: Pandor
Pandor activates the Continuous Spell "Topologina Honeycomb Beehicle". As it was activated, Pandor activates its effect, adding 1 "Topologina" monster from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Topologina Babee". As Pandor and her opponent both have the same LP, Pandor Special Summons "Babee" (100/100) from her hand, via its own effect, in Attack Position. As she controls a "Topologina" monster that was Special Summoned this turn, Pandor Special Summons "Topologina Maybee" (800/100) from her hand, via its own effect, in Attack Position, but she cannot Normal Summon during the turn she uses this effect. Pandor sets "Babee" and "Maybee" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologina Sassabee" (1000/↑↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As it was Link Summoned, Pandor activates the effect of "Sassabee", returning all "Topologina" monsters that were used as Link Material for that Link Summon from her GY to her hand. She returns "Babee" and "Maybee" from her GY to her hand. Pandor activates the effect of Topologina Gatsbee" in her hand, revealing it, and sending 1 other "Topologina" monster from her hand to her GY to Special Summon it from her hand to a zone a Link Monster points to. She sends "Babee" and Special Summons "Gatsbee" (1500/100), via its own effect, in Attack Position, to the Main Monster Zone the bottom center Link Arrow of "Sassabee" points to. Pandor sets the Link-2 "Sassabee" and "Gatsbee" (2+ Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Trisbaena" (2500/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone.

Pandor activates the effect of the second copy of "Gatsbee" in her hand, revealing it, sending "Maybee" from her hand to the GY, and Special Summoning that copy of "Gatsbee" from her hand, via its own effect, in Attack Position, to the Main Monster Zone the bottom left Link Arrow of "Trisbaena" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone "Trisbaena" points to, its effect activates, banishing that monster and all Spells/Traps on the field, and if it does, Pandor's opponent takes damage equal to the number of Pandor's opponent's Spells/Traps that were banished by this effect x500. Ai chains his set Continuous Trap "A.I. Shadow", targeting 1 "@Ignister" monster he controls and increasing its ATK by 800. In addition, if this effect was activated during his opponent's turn, all monsters his opponent controls must attack that target this turn, if able. He targets "Fire Phoenix @Ignister" ("Fire Phoenix": 2300 → 3100 ATK). The effect of "Trisbaena" resolves, banishing "Beehicle", "A.I. Shadow", "Ignister A.I.Land", and Ai's set "TA.I. Strike". 3 of Ai's cards were banished by the effect of "Trisbaena" (Ai: 4000 → 2500 LP). As "Beehicle" was banished while in the Spell & Trap Zone, Pandor activates its effect, allowing her to add 1 banished "Topologina" card to her hand. She adds "Beehicle". As "A.I. Shadow" left the field while face-up, its effect activates, letting Ai draw a card. Pandor activates "Beehicle" again, and activates its effect again, adding "Topologina Bambee" from her Deck to her hand. Pandor activates the effect of "Bambee", banishing 2 "Topologina" monsters from her GY to Special Summon it from her hand. She banishes "Babee" and "Maybee" from her GY to Special Summon "Bambee" (1000/100) from in Attack Position. Pandor sets the Link-3 "Trisbaena" and "Bambee" (2+ Effect monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Bomber Dragon" (3000/↑↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Pandor activates the effect of another copy of "Bambee" in her hand, banishing "Bambee" and "Gatsbee" from her GY to Special Summon it from her hand, via its own effect, in Attack Position, to a zone "Bomber Dragon" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster points to, the effect of "Bomber Dragon" activates, destroying all monsters in the Main Monster Zones. "Bambee" and "Fire Phoenix" are destroyed. As"Fire Phoenix" was destroyed by a card effect and sent to the GY, Ai activates its second effect, allowing him to target 1 monster his opponent controls, and destroy it. He targets "Bomber Dragon", but as a Cyberse monster(s) Pandor controls would be destroyed by an opponent's card effect, she banishes "Beehicle" from her Spell & Trap Zone instead, via its own effect.

"Bomber Dragon" attacks and destroys "Dark Templar @Ignister". During damage calculation, Ai activates the effect of "Donyoribo @Ignister" in his hand as an "@Ignister" monster he controls was attacked, discarding "Donyoribo" to reduce the battle damage he would take from that battle to 0. After damage calculation, since "Bomber Dragon" attacked an opponent's monster, its effect activates, inflicting damage to that player equal to that attack target's original ATK (Ai: 2500 → 200 LP). Pandor Sets a card.

Turn 3: Ai
During Ai's Standby Phase, he activates the third effect of "Fire Phoenix", as its second effect was activated since his previous Standby Phase, Special Summoning it from his GY. He Special Summons "Fire Phoenix" (2300/←↓→) from the GY, via its own effect, to the zone the top center Link Arrow of "Bomber Dragon" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster points to, the effect of "Bomber Dragon" activates, destroying all monsters in the Main Monster Zones. "Fire Phoenix" is destroyed. As "Fire Phoenix" was destroyed by a card effect and sent to the GY, Ai activates its second effect, targeting and destroying "Bomber Dragon". As a Link Monster she controlled was destroyed by a card effect, Pandor activates her Set Continuous Trap "Topologina Beeswax", placing counters on it equal to the destroyed monster's Link Rating, plus one for every one of her banished "Topologina" monsters. "Bomber Dragon" is Link-4, and she has 5 banished "Topologina" monsters ("Beeswax" counters: 0 → 9). While "Beeswax" is face-up, neither player takes battle damage if the amount is less than or equal to the number of counters on "Beeswax" x 500. Also, if a monster battles, one counter is removed from "Beeswax" after damage calculation, and if the last counter(s) is removed from "Beeswax", it is destroyed. Ai activates the Quick-Play Spell "A.I.dle Reborn", letting him target 1 "@Ignister" monster in his GY and Special Summon. He targets and Special Summons "Fire Phoenix".

"Fire Phoenix" attacks directly. During damage calculation, Ai activates the first effect of "Fire Phoenix": if it is attacking, he can inflict damage to his opponent, equal to its ATK, but his opponent will take no battle damage from this attack. As a card or effect that would inflict damage was activated while he controls a face-up "@Ignister" monster, Ai chains the effect of "Donyoribo" in his GY, banishing it to either double that damage or reduce it to 0. Ai chooses to double the damage (Pandor: 4000 → 0 LP).
