"The Race to Escape, Part 1", known as "Terror of Gatling Ogre" in the Japanese version, is the eighty-ninth episode of the animeYu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. It first aired in Japan on December 16, 2009 and in the United States on December 11, 2010.
After a brief fight, Yusei grabs Kalin and escapes from the mine. Upon escaping, they reach a graveyard, where Kalin recognizes the "graves" of those who were defeated in duels and forced to go to the mine, realizing everything here is his own doing, shocking him.
When Yusei tries to help the people sent to the mine, Lawton appears and makes his assault. Wanting to save Kalin and the others, Yusei has a Turbo Duel against Lawton. In the meantime, Kalin starts an uprising to escape the mine.
Yusei intends to perform a Synchro Summon, so he can destroy "Gatling Ogre, however Lawton then activates his face-down "Narrow Tunnel". Now both players can only summon one monster onto their side of the field once a turn and if they control more than one monster, they must destroy monsters they control until they control only one. Yusei then sets two cards.
Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei draws "Turret Warrior". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Lawton's SPC: 2 → 3; Yusei's SPC: 2 → 3). Yusei then Tributes "Max Warrior" in order to Special Summon "Turret Warrior" (5/1200/2000) in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Turret Warrior", it gains ATK equal to the ATK of "Max Warrior" ("Turret Warrior": 1200 → 3000/2000). "Turret Warrior" attacks and destroys "Full Armor Ogre" (Lawton 2400 → 1000). Since "Full Armor Ogre" was sent from the field to the Graveyard, its final effect activates, allowing Lawton to revive "Gatling Ogre" (3/800/800) in Attack Position.
Lawton intends to draw either a Speed Spell or a Trap Card on his next Draw Phase. If it's a Speed Spell, Lawton can activate the effect of "Speed World 2" to remove four Speed Counters and inflict 800 damage to Yusei for each Speed Spell in his hand. If it's a Trap Card, he will set it and activate the effect of "Gatling Ogre" to send the set card to the Graveyard and inflict 800 damage to Yusei.
In the dub, a shot of Lawton's opening hand shows the card "Barrel Behind the Door" with its unedited Japanese artwork. Interestingly, this is the second time this same error has been made with the same card in the space of only a few episodes, as a few episodes earlier the Guard Robot drew "Barrel Behind the Door", again featuring the unedited Japanese artwork, rather than the English artwork.
Differences in adaptations
In the dub, the bullets that "Gatling Ogre" fires are recolored purple and the sounds effects are laser-like. Oddly, the bullet fired by "Full Armor Ogre" remains unedited.
