"Complete Combustion" is the one hundred and sixteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on August 28, 2019.

As their battle rages on, Varis is disappointed to see that Soulburner still has doubts in his heart. Enraged by this, Soulburner decides to cast aside the trauma caused by the Lost Incident, and the sadness he felt after losing Flame... With all his doubts gone, Soulburner summons a mighty conflagration to his right hand.

Featured Duel: Soulburner vs. Varis[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Varis has 800 LP and controls "Boot Sector Launch" in his Field Zone. Soulburner has 3000 LP and controls "Salamangreat Violet Chimera (2300/1500) in Attack Position in the Extra Monster Zone, as well as "Salamangreat Sanctuary" in his Field Zone, and "Salamangreat Kernel" (equipped to "Violet Chimera") and 1 Set card in his Spell & Trap Zones.

Turn 4: Varis
Varis activates the Spell "Final Offguard" as his LP are lower than his opponent's and only his opponent controls a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck, drawing 2 cards. As his opponent controls more monsters than he does, Varis activates the third effect of the Field Spell "Boot Sector Launch", Special Summoning "Rokket" monsters with different names from his GY in Defense Position up to the difference. Varis controls no monsters and Soulburner controls "Salamangreat Violet Chimera", so Varis Special Summons "Anesthrokket Dragon" (0/2200) in Defense Position. Due to the first effect of "Boot Sector Launch", all "Rokket" monsters on the field gain 300 ATK/DEF ("Anesthrokket": 0/2200 → 300/2500 ATK/DEF). Varis activates the Equip Spell "Borrel Regenerator", targeting 1 "Rokket" monster in his GY, Special Summoning it and equipping it with "Borrel Regenerator", but it is banished when "Borrel Regenerator" leaves the field. He Special Summons "Silverrokket Dragon" (1900/100 → 2200/400 ATK/DEF) in Attack Position and equips it with "Borrel Regenerator". Varis activates the Quick-Play Spell "Squib Draw", targeting 1 "Rokket" monster he controls and destroying it, and if he does, he draws 2 cards. He targets and destroys "Silverrokket", and draws 2 cards. As "Borrel Regenerator" was sent to the GY because the equipped monster was destroyed, Varis activates its second effect, drawing a card. As he controls a "Rokket" monster, Varis Special Summons "Absorouter Dragon" (1200/2800) from his hand in Defense Position via its own effect. Varis sets "Anesthrokket" and "Absorouter" (2 Dragon monsters, including a "Rokket" monster) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon a second copy of "Quadborrel Dragon" (1000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone on his right-hand side. As "Absorouter Dragon" was sent to his GY, Varis activates its second effect, adding 1 "Rokket" monster from his Deck to his hand. He adds 1 unknown monster.

Varis activates the Spell "Borrel Half Replace", targeting 1 "Borrel" Link Monster in his GY and Special Summoning 1 "Borrel" Link Monster from his Extra Deck with the same Link Rating as that target, but a different name, and if he does, its ATK becomes halved, its effects are negated, also it is destroyed during the End Phase. He targets the Link-4 "Borreload Dragon in his GY and Special Summons the Link-4 "Borrelsword Dragon" (3000 → 1500 ATK/↑←↙↓) from his Extra Deck to the Main Monster Zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Quadborrel" points to. Varis activates the second effect of "Half Replace" in his GY, banishing it and 2 "Rokket" monsters from his GY to Special Summon 1 Link-2 DARK Link Monster from his Extra Deck to his zone a "Borrel" Link Monster points to, and this is treated as a Link Summon. He banishes "Half Replace", "Silverrokket", and "Anesthrokket" from his GY, and Special Summons the Link-2 DARK "Booster Dragon" (1900/↙↘) from his Extra Deck to the Main Monster Zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Borrelsword" points to. Varis activates the effect of "Quadborrel", discarding 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 his Extra Deck for the rest of the turn. He discards a card, then targets and destroys "Borrelsword".[Notes 1] Due to the effect of "Quadborrel", if the destroyed monster 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. "Borrelsword" is Link-4, therefore Varis can Special Summon up to 4 "Rokkets". He Special Summons "Magnarokket Dragon" (1800/1200 → 2100/1500 ATK/DEF) and "Rokket Recharger" (0/2100 → 300/2400 ATK/DEF) from his GY, both in Defense Position.

Varis activates the first effect of "Booster Dragon", targeting 1 other face-up monster on the field and increasing its ATK/DEF by 500, and his opponent cannot activate cards or effects in response to this effect's activation. He targets "Magnarokket", and then chains the first effect of "Magnarokket" as a Link Monster's effect was activated that targeted it, destroying "Magnarokket", then sending 1 monster on the field to the GY. He destroys "Magnarokket" chooses to send "Violet Chimera" to the GY, however, due to the first effect of "Salamangreat Kernel" that is equipped to "Violet Chimera", it is unaffected by Soulburner's opponent's activated monster effects, except Link Monsters'. Varis activates the Spell "Link Burst", targeting 1 Link Monster he controls and 1 monster his opponent controls, destroying them, then drawing a card. He targets "Booster Dragon" and "Violet Chimera". As the monster equipped with "Kernel" would be destroyed by battle or card effect, Soulburner can return 1 Link-2 or higher "Salamangreat" Link Monster from his GY to the Extra Deck instead, and if he does, the equipped monster cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects this turn. He returns the Link-2 "Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf" from his GY to his Extra Deck. "Booster Dragon" is destroyed, then Varis draws a card. As a DARK monster(s) he controls that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck was destroyed by battle or card effect, Varis activates the first effect of "Rokket Recharger", then he chains the second effect of "Booster Dragon" in his GY as it was Link Summoned and was destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the GY. The chain resolves: due to the second effect of "Booster Dragon", Varis can target 1 other Dragon monster in his GY, and Special Summon it. He targets and Special Summons "Borreload Dragon" (3000/←↙↘→). The first effect of "Rokket Recharger" then resolves: Varis can send "Rokket Recharger" from his hand or field to the GY, then target 1 of the destroyed monsters, and if he does, he Special Summons 1 DARK monster from his GY with a different original name from that targeted monster. He targets "Booster Dragon" in his GY and Special Summons his first copy of "Quadborrel" from his GY.

Varis Normal Summons "Rokket Synchron" (0/0 → 300/300 ATK/DEF). As it was Normal Summoned, Varis activates the effect of "Rokket Synchron", targeting 1 Level 5 or higher DARK Dragon monster in his GY and Special Summoning it in Defense Position, but its effects are negated, also it is destroyed during the End Phase. He targets and Special Summons the Level 7 "Absorouter". Varis tunes his Level 1 Tuner "Rokket Synchron" with his Level 7 "Absorouter" to Synchro Summon the Level 8 "Borreload Savage Dragon" (3000/2500) in Attack Position. As it was Synchro Summoned, Varis activates the first effect of "Borreload Savage Dragon", equipping 1 Link Monster from his GY to it and placing Borrel Counters on "Borreload Savage" equal to that Link Monster's Link Rating, then "Borreload Savage Dragon" gains ATK equal to half the original ATK of the monster equipped to it by its effect. He equips the 3000 ATK Link-4 "Borrelsword" from his GY to "Borreload Savage Dragon" ("Savage Dragon": 3000 → 4500 ATK, 0 → 4 Borrel Counters). Varis sets his 2 copies of the Link-2 "Quadborrel" (2+ Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Zeroboros" (3000/↙↖↗↘). Due to its first effect, "Zeroboros" gains 200 ATK for each banished card. There are currently 4: "Noctovision Dragon", "Half Replace", "Silverrokket", and "Anesthrokket" ("Zeroboros": 3000 → 3800 ATK).

"Borreload" attacks "Violet Chimera". Varis activates the second effect of "Borreload", targeting 1 face-up monster on the field, and reducing its ATK/DEF by 500, and his opponent cannot activate cards or effects in response to this effect's activation. He targets "Violet Chimera" ("Violet Chimera": 2300/1500 → 1800/1000 ATK/DEF). Soulburner activates his Set Trap "Salamangreat Geyser", targeting 1 face-up monster his opponent controls and 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster in his GY, returning that monster in the GY to the Extra Deck, and if he did, reducing that opponent's monster's ATK equal to the returned monster's Link Rating x1000 until the end of the turn, then drawing cards equal to the number of Link Monsters his opponent controls. As his opponent activated a card or effect, Varis chains the third effect of "Savage Dragon", removing 1 Borrel Counter from "Savage Dragon" to negate the activation. He removes 1 Borrel Counter ("Borreload Savage": 4 → 3 Borrel Counters) and negates "Geyser", which resolves without effect. The attack continues (Soulburner: 3000 → 1800 LP) but "Violet Chimera" isn't destroyed due to the fourth effect of "Kernel". "Borreload Savage Dragon" attacks "Violet Chimera". As "Violet Chimera" is battling a monster whose ATK is different from its original ATK, Soulburner activates its second effect of "Violet Chimera", doubling the ATK of "Violet Chimera" during damage calculation only ("Violet Chimera": 1800 → 3600 ATK). The attack continues (Soulburner: 1800 → 900 LP, "Violet Chimera": 3600 → 1800 ATK), but "Violet Chimera" isn't destroyed due to the fourth effect of "Kernel". "Zeroboros" attacks "Violet Chimera". Soulburner activates the second effect of "Violet Chimera", doubling its ATK during damage calculation only ("Violet Chimera": 1800 → 3600 ATK). The attack continues (Soulburner: 900 → 700 LP, "Violet Chimera": 3600 → 1800 ATK), but "Violet Chimera" isn't destroyed due to the fourth effect of "Kernel".

During the End Phase, Varis activates the second effect of "Magnarokket" in his GY as it is in the GY because it was destroyed on the field by battle or card effect and sent there this turn, Special Summoning 1 "Rokket" monster from his Deck, except another copy of "Magnarokket". He Special Summons "Autorokket Dragon" (1600/1000 → 1900/1300 ATK/DEF) from his Deck in Defense Position, to a Main Monster Zone that a Link Monster(s) he controls points to. As another monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster points to, Varis activates the second effect of "Zeroboros", banishing all cards on the field. "Borreload Dragon", "Savage Dragon", "Borrelsword", "Zeroboros", "Autorokket", "Boot Sector Launch", "Salamangreat Sanctuary" and "Violet Chimera" are banished, however "Kernel" is not banished, as its second effect prevents it from being destroyed or banished by card effects while equipped. However, as the monster it was equipped to left the field, "Kernel" is destroyed.

Turn 5: Soulburner
During the Standby Phase, Varis activates the third effect of his banished "Zeroboros", Special Summoning it as it was banished during the previous turn. He Special Summons it to his middle Main Monster Zone, so that its top-left and top-right Link Arrows point to the two Extra Monster Zones. Due to its first effect, "Zeroboros" gains 200 ATK for each banished card. There are currently 11: "Borreload", "Savage Dragon", "Autorokket", "Borrelsword", "Boot Sector Launch", "Noctovision", "Half Replace", "Anesthrokket", "Silverrokket", "Violet Chimera", and "Sanctuary" ("Zeroboros": 3000 → 5200 ATK).

As he controls no cards, Soulburner activates the Spell "Burning Draw", targeting 1 Link Monster his opponent controls, and drawing cards equal to its Link Rating. He targets the Link-4 "Zeroboros" and draws four cards. Soulburner activates the Spell "Link Fire's Return", targeting 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster in his GY, and Special Summoning it, but it cannot attack or activate its effects for the rest of this turn, then he inflicts damage to his opponent equal to its Link Rating x200. He targets and Special Summons the Link-3 "Salamangreat Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘) (Varis: 800 → 200 LP). Soulburner activates the first effect of "Salamangreat Salamandra" in his hand, revealing it in his hand, then Special Summoning 1 "Salamangreat" monster from his hand whose Level is less than or equal to the total Link Rating of the Link Monsters on the field. The total Link Rating of all Link Monsters on the field is 7, so Soulburner Special Summons the Level 6 "Salamandra" (2200/800) from his hand in Defense Position. Soulburner sets "Salamandra" and the Link-3 "Heatleo" (2+ FIRE Effect Monsters) in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Salamangreat Pyro Phoenix" (2800/↑→↓←) to one of the Extra Monster Zones that "Zeroboros" points to. As another monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster points to, Varis activates the second effect of "Zeroboros", which would banish all cards on the field, then as a Link Monster(s) is Special Summoned to his opponent's field, he chains the first effect of "Karmacept Dragon" in his hand, allowing him to target 1 of those monsters and equip "Karmacept" from his hand or field to that target. Due to the second effect of "Karmacept", if the monster equipped with "Karmacept" by its own effect is banished, Varis can inflict damage to his opponent equal to the ATK of the monster "Karmacept" was equipped to. He targets "Pyro Phoenix", but Soulburner chains the Quick-Play Spell "Salamangreat Transcendence", targeting 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster he control, Reincarnation Link Summon a "Salamangreat" Link Monster from his Extra Deck using that target as the entire material. The chain resolves: Soulburner targets "Pyro Phoenix" and Super Reincarnation Link Summons a second copy of "Pyro Phoenix". The first effect of "Karmacept" resolves, but as its target is no longer on the field, it resolves without effect and is sent to Varis' GY. The second effect of "Zeroboros" resolves, banishing all cards on the field. "Zeroboros", "Pyro Phoenix", and "Transcendence" are all banished.

As "Karmacept" was sent to the GY, Varis activates its third effect, targeting 1 Link Monster in his opponent's GY, then Special Summoning 1 of his banished Dragon Link Monsters with an equal or lower Link Rating than the targeted monster. He targets the Link-4 "Pyro Phoenix" in Soulburner's GY, and Special Summons his banished Link-4 "Borreload Dragon". As "Salamandra" is in his GY and a Link Summoned "Salamangreat" Link Monster left the field because of an opponent's card effect this turn, Soulburner activates its second effect, banishing it from his GY to Special Summon 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster from his GY with a lower Link Rating than the Link Monster that left the field, then negating the effects of all face-up monsters currently on the field until the end of this turn. However, the monster Special Summoned by this effect is destroyed during the End Phase. The Link-4 "Pyro Phoenix" left the field, so he banishes "Salamandra" from his GY and Special Summons the Link-3 "Heatleo" from his GY, then the effects of "Borreload" and "Heatleo" are negated. Soulburner activates the Field Spell "Sanctuary". Due to its first effect, if Soulburner Link Summons a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, he can use 1 "Salamangreat" Link Monster he controls with its same name as the entire material. Therefore, Soulburner sets "Heatleo" in the Link Arrows to Reincarnation Link Summon another copy of "Heatleo" to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Heatleo" has been 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 second target's until the end of the turn. He targets "Borreload" on the field and "Salamangreat Balelynx in his GY ("Borreload": 3000 → 500 ATK). "Salamangreat Heatleo" attacks and destroys "Borreload Dragon" (Varis: 200 → 0 LP).
