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

Featured Duel: Soulburner vs. Varis[edit]

Turn 1: Soulburner
Soulburner Normal Summons "Salamangreat Wolvie" (1700/1000). Soulburner activates the Normal Spell "Fury of Fire", allowing him to Special Summon 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 both "Salamangreat Falco" (1200/1600) and "Salamangreat Parro" (2000/1000) from his hand, both in Defense Position, both with their effects negated. 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 1 card in his Spell & Trap Zone.

Turn 2: Varis
Varis activates the Field Spell "Boot Sector Launch" and 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 both "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": he can discard 1 card, then target 1 face-up monster on the field and destroy 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, therefore 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. Varis activates the second effect of "Noctovision Dragon" in his hand: if a DARK Dragon monster(s) is Special Summoned to his field, can Special Summon "Noctovision" from his hand, which he does so 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. Varis activats the third effect of "Noctovision": if it is sent to the GY as Link Material, he can draw 1 card.

"Quadborrel" attacks Soulburner directly (Soulburner: 4000 → 3000 LP)

"Borreload" attacks Soulburner directly. In response, Soulburner activates his Set Normal Trap "Salamangreat Gazer", allowing him to target 1 face-up monster his opponent controls and 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster in his GY, then return 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 1 card in his Spell & Trap Zone. During the End Phase, the ATK of "Borreload" return to normal ("Borreload": 0 → 3000 ATK).

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. Soulburner activates the first effect of "Balelynx", then chains the first effect of "Salamangreat Gazelle" in his hand. the chains resolves backwards: Due to the first effect of "Gazelle", if a "Salamangreat" monster is 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 first effect of "Balelynx" resolves, allowing Soulburner to add "Salamangreat Sanctuary" from his Deck to his hand. Soulburner activates the second effect of "Gazelle": if it is Normal or Special Summoned, he can send 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, via its own effect) from his Deck to his GY. Soulburner activates the second effect of "Spinny" in his GY: if he controls a "Salamangreat" monster, other than a copy "Spinny", and this card is in his GY, then he can Special Summon "Spinny", but it is banished when it leaves the field. He Special Summons it from his GY in Attack Position. Soulburner overlays "Gazelle" and "Spinny" (2 Level 3 monsters) 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": he can detach 1 material from it, in order 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. He detaches 1 material from "Miragestallio" ("Miragestallio": 2 → 1 ORU), and Special Summons "Salamangreat Jack Jaguar" fromhis Deck in Defense Position. 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. Soulburner activates the second effect of "Sunlight Wolf": during your Main Phase, if he controls this card that was Reincarnation Link Summoned, Soulburner can add 1 "Salamangreat" Spell/Trap from his GY to his hand. He adds "Fusion of Fire" (which is always treated as a "Salamangreat" card, via its own effect) from his GY to his hand. Soulburner activates the second effect of "Jack Jaguar" in his GY: if he controls a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, while this card is in his GY, then he can target 1 "Salamangreat" monster in his GY, except another copy of "Jack Jaguar", and shuffle that target into the Deck, and if he does, he Special Summons "Jack Jaguar" to his zone his "Salamangreat" Link Monster points to. He targets and shuffles "Spinny" from his GY to his Deck, and Special Summons "Jack Jaguar" in Attack Position to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Sunlight Wolf" points to. Soulburner activates the first effect of "Sunlight Wolf": if a monster(s) is Normal or Special Summoned to the zone(s) this card points to (except during the Damage Step), Soulburner can add 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 activets the third effect of "Wolvie" in his hand: if this card is added from his GY to his hand by an effect:, then he can reveal it, then target 1 card in his GY, and add it to his hand. He reveals "Wolvie" in his hand, then targets and adds "Gazer" 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. Soulburner activates the first effect of "Heatleo": if it is Link Summoned, he can target 1 card in his opponent's Spell & Trap Zone, and shuffle it into the Deck. He targets Varis' Set card in his Spell & Trap Zone. In response, Varis activates the first effect of "Noctovision" in his GY: during either player's turn, when his opponent activates a card or effect that targets a Set card(s) he controls, while he controls a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, Varis can banish "Noctovision" from his GY, in order 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. He banishes "Noctovision" and the first effect of "Heatleo" is negated. Soulburner activates the Field Spell "Sanctuary" and uses its first effect: if he Link Summons a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, he can use 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster he controls with its same name as the entire material. 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. Soulburner activates the second effect of "Heatleo": during his Main Phase, if this card was Reincarnation Link Summoned, Soulburner can target 1 face-up monster on the field and 1 monster in his GY, and make 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 the 500 ATK "Balelynx" in his GY ("Quadborrel": 1000 → 500 ATK). Soulburner activates the Normal Spell "Fusion of Fire", allowing him to Fusion Summon 1 "Salamangreat" Fusion Monster from his Extra Deck, using monsters from his hand and/or either field as Fusion Material. In response, Varis activates his Set Normal Trap "Borrel Buster Barrier", allowing him to tribute 1 Link Monster, then target 1 "Borrel" Link Monster he controls, and equip this card to it, and if he does, he places counters on this card 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 this equipped card with card effects. He tributes the Link-2 "Quadborrel" and targets "Borreload", and equips "Borrel Buster Barrier" to that target, which gains 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. Soulburner activates the first effect of "Violet Chimera": if it is Fusion Summoned, Soulburner can make it gain ATK equal to half the combined original ATK of the Fusion Materials used to Summon it, until the end of this turn. "Heatleo" had 2300 ATK and Wolvie had 1700 ATK, therefore "Violet Chimera" gains 2000 ATK ("Violet Chimera": 2800 → 4800 ATK). Soulburner activates the Equip Spell "Salamangreat Kernel" and equips it to "Violet Chimera".

"Violet Chimera" attacks "Borreload". Soulburner activates the third effect of "Kernel": if the equipped monster attacks an opponent's monster, that opponent's monster loses 800 ATK during the Damage Step only ("Borreload": 3000 → 2200 ATK). Varis activates the second effect of "Borreload": during either player's turn, he can target 1 face-up monster on the field, and make it lose 500 ATK/DEF. Also, 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": if it battles a monster whose current ATK is different from its original ATK, he can double the ATK of "Violet Chimera" during damage calculation only ("Violet Chimera": 4300 → 8600 ATK). Varis activates the second effect of "Borrel Buster Barrier": once per battle during damage calculation, if the equipped monster battles, can remove 1 counter from this card, then activate 1 of 2 effects. He can 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 he can 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, but the battle damage Varis takes from the battle is halved, due to "Borrel Buster Barrier" (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 1 card in his Spell & Trap Zone. During the End Phase, the first effect of "Violet Chimera" expires ("Violet Chimera": 4300 → 2300 ATK).
