"Wanting to Fight Each Other" is the one hundred and eleventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on July 24, 2019.

Akira and Blue Maiden work together to break through Ai's battle formation, but Ai then Summons a new trump card and drives the two of them into a corner again. Despite Ai's intensifying attacks against them, the Zaizen siblings' strong bond manages to Summon forth a new ace monster.

Featured Duel: Blue Maiden & Akira vs. Ai[edit]

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

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Blue Maiden & Akira have 1900 LP and control "Tindangle Acute Cerberus" (0/↙↑↘) in the Extra Monster Zone, and "Tindangle Hound" (4700/0) in Attack Position, in a Main Monster Zone "Acute Cerberus" points to, as well as "Stairs of Mail" and 1 Set card in their Spell & Trap Zones. Ai has 3900 LP and controls "Fire Phoenix @Ignister" (2300/←↓→) in his Main Monster Zone, as well as "Ignister A.I.Land" in his Field Zone and "Judgment Arrows" (↖↑↗) in his middle-most Spell & Trap Zone (that points to "Fire Phoenix").

Turn 3: Akira
Due to its own effects, the ATK of "Tindangle Acute Cerberus" increase by 3000, as Akira has 3 or more "Tindangle" monsters with different names in his GY, including "Tindangle Base Gardna", plus an additional 500 ATK for every "Tindangle" monster it points to ("Acute Cerberus": 0 → 3500 ATK).

"Acute Cerberus" attacks "Fire Phoenix @Ignister". Akira activates the effect of "Marincess Decision" in his GY: he can banish it and 1 "Marincess" monster from his GY, in order to target 1 face-up monster his opponent controls, and decrease that target's ATK by the banished monster's original ATK, until the end of this turn. He banishes "Marincess Marbled Rock" (whose original ATK is 2500) and targets "Fire Phoenix" ("Fire Phoenix": 2300 → 0 ATK). The attack continues and "Fire Phoenix" is destroyed (Ai: 3900 → 400 LP), but Ai activates the effect of "Achichi @Ignister" in his GY: after damage calculation, if a FIRE monster he controls was destroyed by battle, he can banish "Achichi" from his GY, in order destroy that monster he control. Therefore, "Fire Phoenix" is treated as if it was destroyed by a card effect, which allows Ai to activate its second effect: if "Fire Phoenix" is destroyed by a card effect and sent to the GY, Ai can destroy 1 monster his opponent controls. Ai attempts to destroy "Acute Cerberus", however Akira activates the second effect of "Marincess Basilalima" in his GY: if a monster(s) he controls would be destroyed by a card effect, he can banish "Basilalima" from his GY instead. In addition, since it was banished, Akira activates the third effect of "Basilalima": if it is banished, Akira can target 1 face-up monster he controls and increase its ATK by 600. He targets "Acute Cerberus" ("Acute Cerberus": 3500 → 4100 ATK).

At the end of the Battle Phase, Akira activates the third effect of "Acute Cerberus": if "Acute Cerberus" declared an attack, he can Special Summon 1 "Tindangle Token" (Fiend/DARK/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF 0). He Special Summons a "Tindangle Token" to the Main Monster Zone the bottom right Link Arrow of "Acute Cerberus" points to in Defense Position ("Acute Cerberus": 4100 → 4600 ATK).

Turn 4: Ai
During his Standby Phase, Ai activates the third effect of "Fire Phoenix": since he has activated the second effect of "Fire Phoenix" since his last Standby Phase, he can Special Summon it from his GY (2300/←↓→). Ai Normal Summons "Hiyari @Ignister" (300/400). Ai activates the second effect of "Hiyari": he can Tribute 1 other "@Ignister" monster, in order to add 1 "A.I.'s Ritual" from his Deck to his hand, then, if he Tributed a Link Monster to activate this effect, he can also add 1 "@Ignister" Ritual Monster from your Deck to your hand, and if he does, the Level of "Hiyari" is increased by the Tributed monster's Link Rating, until the end of this turn. He tributes "Fire Phoenix", adds "A.I.'s Ritual" and "Water Leviathan @Ignister" from his Deck to his hand, and increases the Level of "Hiyari" by 3 (as the Link Rating of the tributed "Fire Phoenix" is 3) ("Hiyari" Level: 1 → 4). Ai activates the Ritual Spell "A.I.'s Ritual", allowing him to Ritual Summon any "@Ignister" Ritual Monster, by tributing "@Ignister" monsters from his hand and/or field, whose total Levels equal or exceed the Level of the Ritual Monster he is Ritual Summoning. Additionally, if he controls a WATER "@Ignister" monster at activation, "A.I.'s Ritual" also allows Ai to banish "@Ignister" monsters from your GY for the Ritual Summon. Ai Tributes the Level 4 "Hiyari" on his field and banishes the Level 4 "Pikari @Ignister" from his GY to Ritual Summon the Level 7 "Water Leviathan" (2300/???) in Attack Position. Ai activates the first effect of "Water Leviathan": if it is Ritual Summoned, Ai can return to the hand all monsters his opponent controls whose original ATK are 2300 or less. He returns "Acute Cerberus" to Akira's Extra Deck. Ai activates the second effect of "Water Leviathan": He can target 1 monster his opponent controls, then return all Link Monsters from his GY to the Extra Deck, and if he does, the targeted monster loses ATK equal to the total Link Rating of the returned monsters x 600. He targets "Tindangle Hound", and returns the Link 1 "Linguriboh" and the Link 3 "Dark Templar @Ignister" and "Fire Phoenix" to his Extra Deck, which have a total Link Rating of 7 ("Hound": 4700 → 500 ATK).

"Water Leviathan" attacks "Hound". Due to the third effect of "Water Leviathan", if it battles an opponent's monster, that opponent's monster's ATK is halved during damage calculation only ("Hound" 500 → 250 ATK). In response to the attack, Akira activates Blue Maiden's Set Continuous Trap "Marincess Bubble Circle": when it is activated, Akira gains LP equal to the total Link Rating of the "Marincess" Link Monsters in his GY x 100. There are currently 2: "Blue Slug" and "Coral Anemone", which have a total Link rating of 3 (Akira & Blue Maiden: 1900 → 2200 → 150 LP). Ai sets a card.

Turn 5: Blue Maiden
Blue Maiden Normal Summons "Marincess Blue Tang" (1500/1200) and activates its effect: if it card is Normal or Special Summoned, Blue Maiden can send 1 "Marincess" monster from her Deck to the GY, except another copy of "Blue Tang". She sends "Marincess Sea Horse" from her Deck to the 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. Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Blue Tang" in her GY, and chains the effect of "Blue Slug". The chain resolves backwards: since "Blue Slug" was Link Summoned, Blue Maiden can target 1 "Marincess" monster in her GY and add it to her hand. She targets and adds "Sea Horse" from her GY to her hand. The effect of "Blue Tang" resolves: as it was sent to the GY as material for the Link Summon of a WATER monster, Blue Maiden can excavate the top 3 cards of her Deck, and if she does, she can add 1 excavated "Marincess" card to her hand, but she must shuffle the rest back into her Deck. Of the 3 excavated, she adds "Marincess Crown Tail" to her hand, and shuffles the remaining 2 cards back into her Deck. Blue Maiden Special Summons "Sea Horse" from her hand to the zone the bottom center Link Arrow of "Blue Slug" points to, via its own effect. Blue Maiden sets "Sea Horse" and "Blue Slug" (2 WATER monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Coral Anemone" (2000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Maiden activates the first effect of "Coral Anemone", allowing her to target 1 WATER monster in her GY and Special Summon it to a zone "Coral Anemone" points to. She targets and Special Summons "Blue Slug" to the zone the bottom center 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 second effect of "Coral Anemone" in her GY: if it is sent to the GY, Blue Maiden can target 1 "Marincess" card in her GY and add it to her hand. She targets and adds "Blue Tang" from her GY to her hand. Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Sea Horse" in her GY: during her Main Phase, except the turn "Sea Horse" was sent to the GY, she can banish "Sea Horse" from her GY, in order to Special Summon 1 WATER monster from her hand to her zone a "Marincess" Link Monster points to. She Special Summons "Crown Tail" (600/2300) to the zone the bottom center Link arrow of "Marbled Rock" points to, in Defense Position. Blue Maiden sets "Crown Tail" and the Link 3 "Marbled Rock" (2+ WATER monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Marincess Great Bubble Reef" (2600/←↙↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Bubble Circle", banishing 1 Level 5 or higher "Marincess" monster from her GY, in order to inflict 100 points of effect damage to her opponent. She banishes the Level 5 "Crown Tail" from her GY (Ai: 400 → 300 LP). Since a monster(s) was banished from the field or GY, Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Great Bubble Reef", increasing its ATK by 600 until the end of this turn ("Great Bubble Reef": 2600 → 3200 ATK). Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Tindangle Returner" in her GY: she can target 1 of her banished monsters, in order to add "Returner" to her hand, and if she does, she returns that target to the GY. She targets and returns her banished "Crown Tail" to her GY, and add "Returner" to her hand. Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Bubble Circle" again, banishing the Level 5 "Crown Tail" from her GY in order to inflict 100 damage to her opponent (Ai: 300 → 200). Since a monster(s) was banished from the field or GY, Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Great Bubble Reef" again, increasing its ATK by 600 until the end of this turn ("Great Bubble Reef": 3200 → 3800 ATK). Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Great Bubble Reef": she can send 1 "Marincess" monster from her hand to the GY, in order to target 1 of her banished "Marincess" monsters and Special Summon it. She sends "Sea Horse" from her hand to her GY, in order to target and Special Summon her banished "Crown Tail" in Defense Position. Blue Maiden activates the first effect of "Returner" from her hand, targeting 1 face-up monster she controls and Tributing 1 other monster, in order to Special Summon "Returner" from her hand, and if she does that, the targeted monster gains ATK equal to the ATK the Tributed monster had on the field, until the end of this turn. She targets "Great Bubble Reef", Tributes "Crown Tail", Special Summons "Returner" (???/3000) in Defense Position, and increases the ATK of "Great Bubble Reef" by the 600 ATK of the Tributed "Crown Tail" ("Great Bubble Reef": 3800 → 4400 ATK). Blue Maiden activates the second effect of "Crown Tail" in her GY: she can banish it from her GY, then, for the rest of this turn, she never takes battle damage if the amount is less than or equal to the total Link Rating of all "Marincess" Link Monsters with different names in her GY x 1000. She has the Link 1 "Blue Slug", the Link 2 "Coral Anemone", and the Link 3 "Marbled Rock" in her GY, therefore she never takes battle damage if the damage is 6000 or less. Since a monster(s) was banished from the field or GY, Blue Maiden activates the effect of "Great Bubble Reef" again, increasing its ATK by 600 until the end of this turn ("Great Bubble Reef": 4400 → 5000 ATK).

"Great Bubble Reef" attacks "Water Leviathan". Due to the third effect of "Water Leviathan", the ATK of "Great Bubble Reef" is halved during damage calculation only ("Great Bubble Reef": 5000 → 2500 ATK). During damage calculation, Ai activates his Set Normal Trap "HA.I.": during his opponent's turn in which he took effect damage, if a monster battles another monster: his opponent takes damage equal to twice the difference in ATK between those 2 battling monsters, then the opponent's attacking monster is destroyed. The difference between the 2500 ATK "Great Bubble Reef" and the 2300 ATK "Water Leviathan" is 200, therefore Blue Maiden and Akira take 400 points of damage (Blue Maiden & Akira: 150 → 0 LP).
