Template:Episode summary


Kite is about to receive 3000 points of damage from III's Number, but Yuma uses his Braveheart to save Kite at the cost of a big part of his own Life Points. Both Yuma and Astral are blown back. IV and III each have their own thoughts about Yuma's move, with III being impressed. Since the damage came from a Number, Astral's presence begins to flicker, but tells Yuma he's used to the way Yuma duels and that it can't be helped, making Yuma grin, getting up. Kite asks him why did it, and doesn't show much sign of appreciation when Yuma tells him he wants to help bring Hart back. Kite ends his turn. Tori angrily says Kite should at least thank Yuma, but Orbital 7 asks her to forgive Kite, since he's quite desperate.

Tron enters Hart's memories during his ritual, arriving at a time where Kite and Hart weren't involved with the Numbers yet. Kite caught a butterfly, and shows it to Hart. He watches at it as it's in a little cage, asking Kite is he can release it, since it would be sad if it had to be imprisoned. Kite says he's a very kind child, and Orbital, revealed to be with them, watches as the butterfly takes off. Tron then opens his eye in reality, stating he will take all of Hart's memories.

Kite urges draw quickly, watching Hart squirm on the screen. Yuma calls IV names, also showing a dislike for IV's stalling. III asks his brother if he's not overdoing it, but the latter reminds III of their own pain. III starts his turn. He uses his Numbers' powers again, this time damaging Yuma's Life Points, with IV commenting that the 'trash' Life Points will gone in no time now. "Machu Mach" attacks "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon", whose ATK was depleted, but Kite saves himself with his Trap. Yuma runs over to Kite to see if he's okay, but Kite gets up, shouting he still has Life Points left. However, IV, not impressed, tells Kite off.

Kite gets angry at IV, and Yuma tells him to calm down, which only angers Kite further, telling Yuma he doesn't know anything about how he feels. Yuma agrees but tells he won't accept those feelings and will help save Hart no matter what. He tells his philosophy on dueling again; it's no tool for anger or revenge, and will show them his "kattobingu" spirit. Astral tells him to do his best, and Yuma draws Monster Reborn, which lets him revive the earlier destroyed Number 39: Utopia. Telling the brothers Utopia's power doesn't end with this, Yuma and Astral perform a Chaos Xyz Evolution to Xyz Summon Number C39: Utopia Ray, stunning both III and IV, and making the watching V think of something, when he says Yuma's last name, "Tsukumo." Kite remains unimpressed, having already seen Utopia Ray, and Tori gets excited about it. III remarks he has never heard of "Chaos Numbers" before, implying even the Tron Family doesn't know about them.

Yuma uses Utopia Ray's "Overlay Charge" effect which boosts it's Attack Points to 3000, and lowers Number 15: Gimmick Puppet - Giant Killer's Attack Points to 500. Yuma then commands Utopia Ray to to attack Giant Killer with "Hope Ray Chaos Slash", destroying Giant Killer. IV activates Gimmick Box, preventing himself from taking damage. As a bonus, the Gimmick Box trap becomes a Level 8 monster on his field. Utopia Ray's Attack Points return to 2500 and Yuma ends his turn. Template:Incomplete

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo and Kite Tenjo vs. III and IVEdit

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 6: Kite
III has just activated the effect of "Number 33: OOPArts Super Weapon - Machu Mach", which would inflict 3000 damage to Kite, but Yuma activates his face-down "Braveheart", halving his Life Points (Yuma 2400 → 1200) to negate the activation and effect. Kite Sets a card.

Turn 7: III
III activates "OOPArts Pyramid Eye Tablet", increasing the ATK of all "OOPArts" monsters he controls by 800 ("Machu Mach" 2400 → 3200). As a monster's ATK was changed, III activates the effect of "Machu Mach", detaching an Overlay Unit to inflict 800 damage to Yuma (Yuma 1200 → 400). "Machu Mach" attacks "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon", but Kite activates his face-down "Battle Simulation", halving the ATK of both monsters until the end of the Battle Phase ("Machu Mach" 3200 → 1600, "Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon" 0 → 0) and preventing both monsters from being destroyed by battle this turn.

Turn 8: Yuma
Yuma activates "Monster Reborn", Special Summoning "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. He performs a Chaos Xyz Evolution, overlaying "Utopia" to Xyz Summon "Number C39: Utopia Ray" (2500/2000). As Yuma has less than 1000 Life Points, he activates the effect of "Utopia Ray", detaching 1 Overlay Unit to decrease the ATK of "Number 15: Gimmick Puppet - Giant Killer" by 1000 ("Giant Killer" 1500 → 500) and increase the ATK of "Utopia Ray" by 500 ("Utopia Ray" 2500 → 3000) until the End Phase. "Utopia Ray" attacks and destroys "Giant Killer". IV activates his face-down "Gimmick Box", reducing the damage to zero and Special Summoning it as a monster with an ATK equivalent to the damage he would have taken (2500/0). Yuma Sets a card.

Turn 9: IV
IV activates "Junk Puppet" Special Summoning 1 "Gimmick Puppet" monster with 1000 or less ATK from his Graveyard. He Special Summons "Gimmick Puppet - Necro Doll" (0/0). IV overlays his two Level 8 DARK monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 40: Gimmick Puppet - Heaven's Strings" (3000/2000) in Attack Position. "Heaven's Strings" attacks "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon", but Yuma activates his face-down "Trap Reborn", paying half his Life Points to copy the effect of "Battle Simulation", halving the ATK of the battling monsters ("Heaven's Strings" 3000 → 1500, "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" 0 → 0) until the end of the Battle Phase and preventing them from being destroyed by battle this turn (Kite 1600 → 100). IV activates the effect of "Heaven's Strings'", detaching an Overlay Unit.

He overlays the 3 Level 8 monsters to Xyz Summon "Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" (4500/3000) in Attack Position. Since "Galaxy-Eyes" was used as an Overlay Unit, the effect of all other face-up cards are negated. He activates its second effect, detaching the Xyz Materials from "Machu Mach" and "Heaven's Strings" to increase the ATK of "Neo Galaxy-Eyes by 500 for each ("Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" 4500 → 6000) and giving it an additional attack for each card detached.
