Featured DuelEdit

Yuma vs. IIIEdit

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 5: III
III Sets a card.

Turn 6: Yuma
Yuma tries to surrender, but III refuses to accept it. Yuma's turn is skipped.

Turn 7: III
III Normal Summons "OOPArts Mud Golem - Shakouki" (1700/1000). "Shakouki" attacks "Gogogo Golem", who is not destroyed via its effect, though the effect of "Shakouki" inflicts piercing damage (Yuma 1700 → 1500). As an "OOPArts" monster failed to destroy a monster by battle, III activates the "Heart of Stone" Quick-Play Spell Card, letting "Shakouki" attack again. "Shakouki" attacks and destroys "Gogogo Golem", inflicting piercing damage via its effect (Yuma 1500 → 1300). "Machu Mach" attacks directly, but Yuma activates the effect of the "Gagaga Gardna" in his hand (which also contains "Full Elf" and "Overlay Eater"), Special Summoning it (1500/2000) in Attack Position. A replay occurs and "Machu Mach" attacks and destroys "Gagaga Gardna" (Yuma 1300 → 400). III activates the effect of "OOPArts City Babylon", banishing the "OOPArts Aztec Mask Golem" in his Graveyard to Special Summon "OOPArts Cabrera's Catapult" (0/1800) from his Graveyard in Defense Position.

Turn 8: Yuma
Yuma activates "Gagagarevenge", letting him Special Summon a "Gagaga" monster from his Graveyard in Attack Position. He chooses "Gagaga Magician" (1500/1000), who is then equipped with "Gagagarevenge". Yuma Normal Summons "Full Elf" (800/1300). He activates the effect of "Full Elf", sending the "Overlay Eater" in his hand to the Graveyard to increase the Level of "Full Elf" by that of the sent monster ("Full Elf" Level 2 → Level 4). Yuma overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. As a monster equipped with "Gagagarevenge" was used as an Overlay Unit, the ATK of the Summoned Xyz Monster is increased by 300 ("Utopia" 2500 → 2800). "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Machu Mach" (III 2200 → 1800).

Turn 9: III
III Tributes "Cabrera's Catapult" to Tribute Summon "OOPArts Sol Monolith" (600/600). Its effect activates, changing the Level of "Shakouki" to 6. III overlays his two Level 6 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 6: OOPArts Atlanthal" (2600/3000) in Attack Position. Its effect activates, letting III equip it with a "Number" monster in his Graveyard. He equips it with "Machu Mach" and it gains ATK equal to the ATK of the equipped monster ("Atlanthal" 2600 → 5000). "Atlanthal" attacks "Utopia", but Yuma activates the effect of "Utopia", detaching an Overlay Unit to negate the attack. III activates the effect of "Atlanthal", detaching an Overlay Unit to halve Yuma's Life Points (Yuma 400 → 200).

Duel continues in the next episode.
