"Where It All Began" is the one hundred and fifteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on August 21, 2019.

Varis appears before Soulburner, who has obtained some data about Ai. In order to finish the battle with the Ignis once and for all, Varis attempts to take the data. With their previous Duel never resolved, the second showdown between Soulburner and Varis begins, with the data about Ai on the line.

Featured Duel: Soulburner vs. Varis[edit]

The Duel is conducted as a Master Duel.

Turn 1: Soulburner
Soulburner Normal Summons "Salamangreat Wolvie" (1700/1000). Soulburner activates the Spell "Fury of Fire", Special Summoning up to 2 "Salamangreat" monsters with different names from his hand and/or GY in Defense Position, but their effects are negated, also, for the rest of this turn after this card resolves, he can only Special Summon from the Extra Deck once. He Special Summons "Salamangreat Falco" (1200/1600) and "Salamangreat Parro" (2000/1000) from his hand, both in Defense Position. Soulburner sets "Wolvie", "Falco", and "Parro" (2+ FIRE Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Salamangreat Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. Soulburner Sets a card.

Turn 2: Varis
Varis activates the Field Spell "Boot Sector Launch". He activates its second effect, allowing him to Special Summon up to 2 "Rokket" monsters with different names from his hand in Defense Position. He Special Summons "Silverrokket Dragon" (1900/100) and "Anesthrokket Dragon" (0/2200), both in Defense Position. Due to the first effect of "Boot Sector Launch", all "Rokket" monsters on the field gain 300 ATK/DEF ("Silverrokket": 1900/100 → 2200/400 ATK/DEF, "Anesthrokket": 0/2200 → 300/2500 ATK/DEF). Varis sets "Silverrokket" and "Anesthrokket" (2 Dragon monsters, including a "Rokket" monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Quadborrel Dragon" (1000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. Varis activates the effect of "Quadborrel Dragon", discarding 1 card, then targeting 1 face-up monster on the field and destroying it, however he cannot Special Summon Link-2 or lower monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of the turn. He discards "Rokket Recharger", then targets and destroys "Heatleo". Due to the effect of "Quadborrel", if the monster that was destroyed by its effect was a Link Monster, Varis can Special Summon any number of "Rokket" monsters with different names from his hand or GY, up to its Link Rating. "Heatleo" is Link-3, so Varis Special Summons "Silverrokket" (1900/100 → 2200/400 ATK/DEF), "Anesthrokket" (0/2200 → 300/2500 ATK/DEF), and "Rokket Recharger" (0/2100 → 300/2400 ATK/DEF) from his GY, all in Defense Position. As a DARK Dragon monster was Special Summoned to his field, Varis activates the second effect of "Noctovision Dragon" in his hand, Special Summoning it. He Special Summons "Noctovision" in Defense Position (0/2800). Varis sets "Silverrokket", "Anesthrokket", "Rokket Recharger", and "Noctovision" (3+ Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Borreload Dragon" (3000/←↙↘→) to the Main Monster Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Quadborrel" points to. As "Noctovision" was sent to the GY as Link Material, Varis activates its third effect to draw a card.

"Quadborrel" attacks Soulburner directly (Soulburner: 4000 → 3000 LP). "Borreload" attacks Soulburner directly. Soulburner activates his Set Trap "Salamangreat Geyser", targeting 1 face-up monster his opponent controls and 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster in his GY, then returning that monster in the GY to the Extra Deck, and if he does, that opponent's monster loses ATK equal to the returned monster's Link Rating x 1000 until the end of this turn, then he draws cards equal to the number of Link Monsters his opponent controls. He targets Varis' "Borreload" on his field and "Heatleo" in his own GY, returns "Heatleo" to his Extra Deck, then he reduces the ATK of "Borreload" by 3000 (as "Heatleo" has a Link Rating of 3) ("Borreload": 3000 → 0 ATK). After that, Soulburner draws 2 cards, as his opponent controls 2 Link Monsters. The attack continues, but since "Borreload" has 0 ATK, Soulburner takes no battle damage. Varis Sets a card.

Turn 3: Soulburner
Soulburner Normal Summons "Salamangreat Spinny" (1000/1500). Soulburner sets "Spinny" (1 Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster) in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Salamangreat Balelynx" (500/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. As "Balelynx" was Link Summoned, Soulburner activates the first effect of "Balelynx", then chains the first effect of "Salamangreat Gazelle" in his hand. The chain resolves backwards: Due to the first effect of "Gazelle", as a "Salamangreat" monster was sent to Soulburner's GY, except another copy of "Gazelle" (except during the Damage Step), he can Special Summon "Gazelle" from his hand, which he does so in Attack Position (1500/1000). The effect of "Balelynx" resolves, allowing Soulburner to add "Salamangreat Sanctuary" from his Deck to his hand. As "Gazelle" was Normal or Special Summoned, Soulburner activates its second effect, sending 1 "Salamangreat" card from his Deck to his GY, except another copy of "Gazelle". He sends "Fusion of Fire", which is always treated as a "Salamangreat" card, from his Deck to his GY. As he controls a "Salamangreat" monster, other than "Salamangreat Spinny", and "Spinny" is in his GY, Soulburner activates its second effect, Special Summoning it, but it is banished when it leaves the field. He Special Summons it from his GY in Attack Position. Soulburner overlays the Level 3 "Gazelle" and "Spinny" to Xyz Summon the Rank 3 "Salamangreat Miragestallio" (2000/900/2 ORU) in Attack Position to the Main Monster Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Balelynx" points to. Soulburner activates the first effect of "Miragestallio", detaching an Overlay Unit to Special Summon 1 "Salamangreat" monster from his Deck in Defense Position, also he cannot activate monster effects for the rest of this turn, except FIRE monsters ("Miragestallio": 2 → 1 ORU) He Special Summons "Salamangreat Jack Jaguar" (1800/1200).

Soulburner sets "Balelynx" and "Miragestallio" (2 FIRE Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf" (1800/↑↓) to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. Soulburner sets "Sunlight Wolf" and "Jack Jaguar" (2 FIRE Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Reincarnation Link Summon a second copy of "Sunlight Wolf" to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. As "Sunlight Wolf" was Reincarnation Link Summoned, Soulburner activates its second effect, adding 1 "Salamangreat" Spell/Trap from his GY to his hand. He adds "Fusion of Fire". Soulburner activates the second effect of "Jack Jaguar" in his GY as he controls a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, targeting 1 "Salamangreat" monster in his GY, except another copy of "Jack Jaguar", and shuffling that target into the Deck, and if he does, Special Summoning "Jack Jaguar" to his zone his "Salamangreat" Link Monster points to. He targets and shuffles "Spinny" from his GY into his Deck, and Special Summons "Jack Jaguar" in Attack Position to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Sunlight Wolf" points to. As a monster(s) was Normal or Special Summoned to the zone(s) "Sunlight Wolf" points to (except during the Damage Step), Soulburner activates its first effect, adding 1 FIRE monster from his GY to his hand, but for the rest of this turn, he cannot Normal Summon/Set or Special Summon monsters with the added monster's name. He targets and adds "Wolvie" from his GY to his hand. Soulburner activates the third effect of "Wolvie" in his hand as it was added from his GY to his hand by an effect, revealing it, then targeting 1 card in his GY and adding it to his hand. He reveals "Wolvie" in his hand, then targets and adds "Geyser" from his GY to his hand. Soulburner sets "Jack Jaguar" and the Link-2 "Sunlight Wolf" (2+ FIRE Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Heatleo" to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. As it was Link Summoned, Soulburner activates the first effect of "Heatleo", targeting 1 card in his opponent's Spell & Trap Zone and shuffling it into the Deck. He targets Varis' Set card in his Spell & Trap Zone, but as Soulburner activated a card or effect that targets a Set card(s) he controls while he controls a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, Varis activates the first effect of "Noctovision" in his GY, banishing it to negate that effect, and if he does, his opponent cannot target that Set card(s) with card effects for the rest of this turn.

Soulburner activates the Field Spell "Sanctuary" and activates its first effect to allow him to use 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster he controls as the entire material to Link Summon one with same name. Soulburner sets "Heatleo" in the Link Arrows to Reincarnation Link Summon a second copy of "Heatleo" to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. As it was Reincarnation Link Summoned, Soulburner activates its second effect, targeting 1 face-up monster on the field and 1 monster in his GY, and making the ATK of the first target become equal to the other target's until the end of this turn. He targets "Quadborrel" on the field and "Balelynx" in his GY ("Quadborrel": 1000 → 500 ATK). Soulburner activates the Spell "Fusion of Fire", Fusion Summoning a "Salamangreat" Fusion Monster from his Extra Deck using monsters from his hand and/or either field as Fusion Material. Varis activates his Set Trap "Borrel Buster Barrier", Tributing 1 Link Monster, then targeting 1 "Borrel" Link Monster he controls, and equipping "Borrel Buster Barrier" to it, then placing counters on it equal to the Tributed Link Monster's Link Rating. The equipped monster is unaffected by Varis' opponent's activated effects, also his opponent cannot target the equipped Borrel Buster Barrier" with card effects. He Tributes the Link-2 "Quadborrel" and targets "Borreload", equipping "Borrel Buster Barrier" to it, gaining 2 counters ("Borrel Buster Barrier": 0 → 2 counters). "Fusion of Fire" resolves, and Soulburner fuses "Heatleo" on his field and "Wolvie" in his hand (1 "Salamangreat" monster and 1 Link Monster) to Fusion Summon "Salamangreat Violet Chimera" (2800/2000) to the Extra Monster Zone. As it was Fusion Summoned, Soulburner activates the first effect of "Violet Chimera", making it gain ATK equal to half the combined original ATK of the Fusion Materials used to Summon it until the end of the turn ("Violet Chimera": 2800 → 4800 ATK). Soulburner activates the Equip Spell "Salamangreat Kernel" and equips it to "Violet Chimera".

"Violet Chimera" attacks "Borreload". As the equipped monster is attacking an opponent's monster, the third effect of "Kernel" reduces the ATK of the attack target by 800 during the Damage Step only ("Borreload": 3000 → 2200 ATK). Varis activates the second effect of "Borreload", targeting 1 face-up monster on the field reducing its 500 ATK/DEF, and his opponent cannot activate cards or effects in response to this effect's activation. He targets "Violet Chimera" ("Violet Chimera": 4800/2000 → 4300/1500 ATK/DEF). During damage calculation, Soulburner activates the second effect of "Violet Chimera" as it is battling a monster whose current ATK is different from its original ATK, doubling the ATK of "Violet Chimera" during damage calculation only ("Violet Chimera": 4300 → 8600 ATK). As the equipped monster is battling, Varis activates the second effect of "Borrel Buster Barrier" once per battle, removing 1 counter from it to either destroy the opponent's monster that battled the equipped monster after damage calculation, and if he does, he inflicts damage to his opponent equal to half the ATK that monster had on the field, OR halve any battle damage he would take from that battle. He removes 1 counter from "Borrel Buster Barrier" ("Borrel Buster Barrier": 2 → 1 counter) and chooses to halve the battle damage he would take from that battle. The attack continues and "Borreload" is destroyed (Varis: 4000 → 800 LP, "Violet Chimera": 8600 → 4300 ATK). As the monster it was equipped to left the field, "Borrel Buster Barrier" is destroyed as well. Soulburner Sets a card.
