On Bruno's attempt, he takes control of "Ancient Gear Soldier" (who had the ability to forbid the opponent from activating Spells and Traps when it attacks) via the effect of "Tragoedia" after he activates "Cost Down" to reduce the Level of "Bird King Alector" by 2. Bruno then activates "Tribute to The Doomed" to destroy "Green Gadget" and decrease the ATK of "Stronghold the Moving Fortress" to 0 (as "Green Gadget", "Red Gadget", and "Yellow Gadget" were not all present on the field)). Bruno then equips "Axe of Despair" onto "Ancient Gear Soldier", increasing its ATK by 1000.
