"Ai's Sad Frustration" is the one hundred and tenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on July 17, 2019.

Ai has discovered Zaizen and Blue Maiden in the network, and in order to seize control of SOL Technologies' system, he challenges the two of them to a Duel. The Zaizen siblings protect each other and fend off Ai's attacks, and with their minds as one they launch a counterattack.

Featured Duel: Blue Maiden & Akira Zaizen vs. Ai

The Duel is conducted as a Master Duel.
The Duel is also conducted as a Tag-Team Duel, with Blue Maiden and Zaizen teaming up against Ai and sharing the same field, GY and LP.

Turn 1: Blue Maiden
Blue Maiden Normal Summons "Marincess Blue Tang". As "Blue Tang" was Normal or Special Summoned, Blue Maiden activates its effect, sending 1 "Marincess" monster from her Deck to her GY, except another copy of "Blue Tang". She sends "Marincess Sea Horse" from her Deck to her GY. Blue Maiden sets "Blue Tang" (1 Level 4 or lower "Marincess" monster) in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Marincess Blue Slug" (1500/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Blue Slug" was Link Summoned, Blue Maiden activates its effect, targeting 1 "Marincess" monster in her GY, and adding it to her hand. She targets and adds "Sea Horse" from her GY to her hand. As "Blue Tang" was sent to the GY as material for the Link Summon of a WATER monster, Blue Maiden activates its effect, excavating the top 3 cards of her Deck and adding 1 excavated "Marincess" card to her hand, then shuffling the rest into her Deck. She adds "Marincess Basilalima" to her hand, and shuffles the remaining 2 unknown cards back into her Deck. Blue Maiden Special Summons "Sea Horse" from her hand to the Main Monster Zone "Blue Slug" points to, via its own effect. Blue Maiden sets "Blue Slug" and "Sea Horse" (2 WATER monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Coral Anemone" (2000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Coral Anemone", allowing her to target 1 WATER monster in her GY and Special Summon it to her zone "Coral Anemone" points to. She targets and Special Summons "Blue Slug" from her GY to her zone the bottom-centre Link Arrow of "Coral Anemone" points to. Blue Maiden sets "Blue Slug" and the Link 2 "Coral Anemone" (2+ WATER monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Marbled Rock" (2500/←↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Marbled Rock", allowing her to target 1 "Marincess" card in her GY, and add it to her hand. She targets and adds "Blue Tang". Blue Maiden Sets 2 cards.

Turn 2: Ai
Ai Normal Summons "Pikari @Ignister" (1200/600). As "Pikari" was Normal or Special Summoned, Ai activates its effect, adding "Ignister A.I.Land" from his Deck to his hand. Ai sets "Pikari" (1 Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Linguriboh" (300/↙) to the Extra Monster Zone. Ai activates the Field Spell "Ignister A.I.Land" and activates its first effect as he controls no monsters in his Main Monster Zones, Special Summoning 1 Level 4 or lower "@Ignister" monster from his hand, but he cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except Cyberse monsters (even if "A.I.Land" leaves the field). He Special Summons "Achichi @Ignister" (800/800) in Defense Position. Ai activates the effect of "Hiyari @Ignister" in his hand as he controls a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, Special Summoning "Hiyari" from his hand to a zone a Link Monster he controls points to. He Special Summons "Hiyari" (300/400) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Linguriboh" points to, in Defense Position. Ai sets "Linguriboh", "Achichi", and "Hiyari" (3 Cyberse monsters, including a DARK monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Dark Templar @Ignister" (2300/↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Ai activates the first effect of "A.I.Land" again, Special Summoning "Doyon @Ignister" (400/1600) from his hand to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Dark Templar" points to, in Defense Position. Ai activates the effect of "Dark Templar", and chains the effect of "Doyon". The chain resolves backwards: as "Doyon" was Normal or Special Summoned, Ai can target 1 "@Ignister" monster in his GY and add it to his hand. He targets and adds "Hiyari" from his GY to his hand. The effect of "Dark Templar" resolves as a monster was Special Summoned to his zone a Link Monster he controls points to, Ai can target 1 Link Monster he controls, and Special Summon as many Level 4 or lower "@Ignister" monsters with different names from his GY as possible to his zones the targeted monster points to with their effects negated. He targets "Dark Templar" and Special Summons "Pikari" and "Achichi" to the zones the bottom-centre and bottom-right Link Arrows of "Dark Templar" point to respectively, both in Defense Position. Ai sets "Doyon", "Pikari", and "Achichi" (2+ Cyberse monsters, including a FIRE monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Fire Phoenix @Ignister" (2300/←↓→) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Dark Templar" points to. Ai activates the Link Spell "Judgment Arrows" (↖↑↗) in the Spell & Trap Zone the bottom-centre Link Arrow of "Fire Phoenix" points to.

"Fire Phoenix" attacks "Marbled Rock". The effect of "Judgement Arrows" activates as a Link Monster it points to is battling, doubling the ATK of that monster during damage calculation only ("Fire Phoenix": 2300 → 4600 ATK). As an opponent's monster declared an attack, Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Marbled Rock", sending 1 "Marincess" monster from her hand to her GY to prevent that battling "Marincess" monster from being destroyed by that battle, also she takes no battle damage from that battle. She sends "Basilalima" from her hand to her GY. As Blue Maiden controls a Link-3 or higher "Marincess" monster, she can activate her Trap "Marincess Wave" from her hand. As she controls a "Marincess" Link Monster, Blue Maiden activates "Marincess Wave" from her hand, targeting 1 face-up monster her opponent controls and negating that face-up monster's effects until the end of this turn, then, if she controls a Link-2 or higher "Marincess" monster, all face-up monsters she currently controls are unaffected by her opponent's card effects until the end of this turn. She targets "Fire Phoenix". The attack continues, but "Marbled Rock" isn't destroyed and Blue Maiden takes no battle damage from the battle. Ai activates the Quick-Play Spell "TA.I.med Technique", targeting 1 "@Ignister" monster he controls in the Extra Monster Zone and 1 Link Monster in his Main Monster Zone, then banishing both that monster in his Main Monster Zone and cards from his opponent's hand, up to that monster's Link Rating, until the end of the Battle Phase, and if he does, he then moves that monster in his Extra Monster Zone to his Main Monster Zone. He targets "Dark Templar" in his Extra Monster Zone and "Fire Phoenix" in his Main Monster Zone, banishes "Fire Phoenix" and 2 cards from Blue Maiden's hand (as "Fire Phoenix" is Link 3), then he moves "Dark Templar" to the Main Monster Zone the top-right Link Arrow of "Judgement Arrows" points to. "Dark Templar" attacks "Marbled Rock". The effect of "Judgement Arrows" activates as a Link Monster it points to is battling, doubling the ATK of that monster during damage calculation only ("Dark Templar": 2300 → 4600 ATK). "Marbled Rock" is destroyed (Blue Maiden & Zaizen: 4000 → 1900 LP) ("Dark Templar": 4600 → 2300 ATK).

Turn 3: Zaizen
Zaizen Sets a monster. Zaizen activates the Continuous Spell "Stairs of Mail". Zaizen activates the effect of "Stairs of Mail", allowing him to send 1 "Tindangle" card from his hand to his GY to apply 1 of 2 effects, but he cannot send other cards with the same name to his GY by the effect of "Stairs of Mail" for the rest of this turn. He can either change 1 face-down Defense Position monster he controls to Attack Position, or he can change 1 Attack Position monster he controls to face-down Defense Position. He sends "Tindangle Intruder" from his hand to the GY, and applies the first effect, changing his Set "Tindangle Angel" (500/1800) to Attack Position. Zaizen activates the Flip effect of "Angel", Special Summoning 1 Flip monster from his hand or GY in face-down Defense Position, except another copy of "Tindangle Angel". He Special Summons a Flip monster from his hand in Defense Position. Zaizen activates the effect of "Intruder" in his GY as a monster(s) was Special Summoned to his field in face-down Defense Position while "Intruder" was in his GY, Special Summoning "Intruder" from his GY in face-down Defense Position. As he controls a face-down Defense Position monster, Zaizen Special Summons "Tindangle Base Gardna" (0/2300) from his hand in Defense Position via its own effect. Zaizen activates the effect of "Stairs of Mail" again, sending "Tindangle Returner" from his hand to his GY to change his face-down Defense Position "Intruder" (2200/0) to Attack Position. Zaizen activates the Flip effect of "Intruder", adding 1 "Tindangle" card from his Deck to his hand. He adds an unknown "Tindangle" card from his Deck to his hand. Zaizen activates the effect of "Stairs of Mail", sending the unknown "Tindangle" card from his hand to his GY to change his face-down Defense Position "Tindangle Hound" (2500/0) to Attack Position. Zaizen activates the Flip effect of "Hound", targeting 1 other face-up monster on the field and increasing the ATK of "Hound" by that target's original ATK, then changing that target to face-down Defense Position. He targets "Intruder" ("Hound": 2500 → 4700 ATK), which is then changed to face-down Defense Position.

"Hound" attacks "Dark Templar", and the effect of "Judgement Arrows" activates as a Link Monster it points to is battling, doubling the ATK of that monster during damage calculation only ("Dark Templar": 2300 → 4600 ATK). "Dark Templar" is destroyed (Ai: 4000 → 3900). Zaizen activates Blue Maiden's Set Normal Trap "Marincess Decision", allowing him to banish 1 "Marincess" card from their GY, in order to target 1 face-down Defense Position monster he controls and change it to face-up Defense Position, (but its Flip effects are not activated), then immediately after this effect resolves, Link Summon 1 Link Monster using monsters he controls as material, including that targeted monster. He banishes "Wave", targets his Set "Intruder", and changes it to face-up Defense Position, then he sets "Base Gardna", "Intruder", and "Angel" (3 "Tindangle" monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Tindangle Acute Cerberus" (0/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone.

Duel continues in the next episode.
