The Edge of Elimination, Part 2, known as For The Team in the Japanese version, is the one-hundredth and first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
Yusei has scraped a win over Andre, but his next opponent is Breo, whose strategy is Deck destruction. Yusei's Deck proves an easy target and decreases to 23 cards, but Yusei never goes on defense. He pushes onward, drawing new cards from his Deck and launching an attack with "Stardust Dragon". But none of it fazes Breo, who reduces Yusei's Deck further. He then sets a final defense that presents Yusei with a choice: gamble with a draw and possibly receive a penalty, or try to destroy the key Trap. He believes Yusei will not risk his cards when he is in such a tight spot, and once Yusei destroys the Trap, another of his cards will eliminate the remainder of Yusei's Deck. To the shock of everyone on Team Unicorn, Yusei bets on his draw. It works, as Breo's card delivers Yusei's other ace monster -- Junk Synchron. This allows Yusei to unveil his latest Synchro Monster, which rips apart Breo's combo and delivers the finishing attack. But moments before the impact, Breo uses his last card to deal parting damage to Yusei, leaving him with a sliver of life and only 4 cards in his Deck against Jean, who is up next and ready to begin his assault. The first match of the WRGP will come down to a survival between the two Last Wheelers.
Yusei Fudo vs. BreoEdit
Turn 15: Breo
Breo sets 2 cards and ends his turn.
Turn 16: Yusei Fudo
(Yusei's SPC 12; Breo's SPC 3)
Yusei's hand contains Summon Tax, Stronghold Guardian, Sonic Chick and Backup Warrior. Yusei draws "Speed Spell - Acceleration Draw"(Yusei's Deck 23 → 22) and subsequently activates it to draw 2 cards from his Deck (Yusei's Deck 22 → 20). "Stardust Dragon" attacks Breo directly (Breo 4000 → 1500 Life Points). Breo activates "Regretful Tuning", Special Summoning "Voltic Bicorn" from the Graveyard (2500/2000) in Attack Position. Yusei sets one card and ends his turn.
Turn 17: Breo
(Yusei's SPC 12; Breo's SPC 4)
Breo draws "Damage Lance". "Voltic Bicorn" attacks "Stardust Dragon", but Yusei activates "Synchro Striker Unit" to equip it to "Stardust Dragon" and increase its ATK by 1000 ("Stardust Dragon": 2500 → 3500/2000). Breo activates "Flattery" to increase "Voltic Bicorn's" ATK by the difference between "Stardust Dragon's" original ATK and current ATK ("Voltic Bicorn": 2500 → 3500/2000). Both battling monsters are destroyed in a Double KO. The effect of "Voltic Bicorn" activates, forcing both players to send the top 7 cards of their Decks to the Graveyard(one card for each Level Star "Voltic Bicorn" had) (among them, Breo loses "Nimble Momonga", "Blasting the Ruins", his second copy of "Mine Mole", and "Speed Spell - Overboost") (Yusei's Deck 20 → 13). Breo activates his face-down "Tuning Collapse", which makes Yusei send cards from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard equal to the Level of "Stardust Dragon". Stardust Dragon" was Level 8, so Yusei is forced to send the top 8 cards of his Deck to the Graveyard (among them, Yusei loses "Turret Warrior", "Speed Spell - Final Attack", "Starlight Road", and "Level Warrior") (Yusei's Deck 13 → 5). Breo sets 3 cards and ends his turn.
Turn 18: Yusei Fudo
(Yusei's SPC 12; Breo's SPC 5)
Yusei draws "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" (Yusei's Deck 5 → 4). Breo activates "Tricolor Illusion". Now Yusei's monsters are not allowed to attack. Also once during each of Yusei's turns, he must reveal the top card of his Deck and depending on the type of card, an appropriate effect will activate. If the card is a monster, it will be added to Yusei's hand, but Yusei must place another card in his hand on top of his Deck. If it's a Spell Card, it will be added to Yusei's hand. If it's a Trap Card, Yusei must discard it and one other card in his hand to the Graveyard. Yusei can, at any point during his Main Phase, send the top card of his Deck to the Graveyard to destroy "Tricolor Illusion". Breo intends for Yusei to destroy "Tricolor Illusion" with either its own effect or the effect of "Speed World 2"(because he believes Yusei is not a person who would gamble) which would allow him to activate his set "Destruction Trigger" which will force Yusei to send 5 cards from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard which will make Yusei lose due to Deck Out. Yusei's hand contains "Summon Tax", "Stronghold Guardian", "Sonic Chick", "Backup Warrior", "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow", and "Speed Spell - Speed Fusion". Yusei decides to use this effect. Yusei, to Breo's shock, activates the effect of "Tricolor Illusion" to reveal his top card (Yusei's Deck 4 → 3). It is "Junk Synchron", so he puts the "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" in his hand on top of his Deck (Yuseis' Deck 3 → 4). Yusei Normal Summons "Junk Synchron" (1300/500) in Attack Position. Yusei then tunes "Card Breaker" and "Dash Warrior" with "Junk Synchron" to Synchro Summon "Junk Destroyer" (2600/2500) in Attack Position. Since "Junk Destroyer" was Synchro Summoned, its effect activates, destroying a number of cards Breo controls equal to the number of non-Tuner Monsters that were used to Synchro Summon "Junk Destroyer". Two non-Tuner monsters were used to Synchro Summon "Junk Destroyer", so two of Breo's cards are destroyed; both "Tricolor Illusion" and Breo's set "Destruction Trigger" are destroyed. "Junk Destroyer" attacks Breo directly, but Breo activates "Damage Lance" which reduces Junk Destroyer's ATK by 1000("Junk Destroyer": 2600 → 1600/2500) during damage calculation only and inflicts 1000 damage to Yusei (Yusei 2000 → 1000 Life Points). The attack continues (Breo 1500 → 0 Life Points). After damage calculation, the ATK of "Junk Destroyer" goes back to normal ("Junk Destroyer": 1600 → 2600/2500).
Yusei wins. Due to the WRGP rules, Jean takes Breo's place within the duel with 4000 lifepoints, and keeps any cards and Speed Counters he had.
Yusei Fudo vs. JeanEdit
Turn 19: Jean
(Yusei's SPC 12; Jean's SPC 6)
Jean draws "Trident Warrior" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1800/1200) in Attack Position. The effect of "Trident Warrior" activates, allowing Jean to Special Summon "Delta Flyer" (1500/900) from his hand in Attack Position. Jean activates "Delta Flyer's" effect, increasing "Trident Warrior" Level by 1 ("Trident Warrior": Level 4 → 5). Jean then tunes his two monsters together to Synchro Summon "Lightning Tricorn" (2800/2000) in Attack Position. "Lightning Tricorn" attacks "Junk Destroyer", but Yusei activates the effect of "Shield Warrior" from his Graveyard, removing it from play to prevent "Junk Destroyer" from being destroyed in battle this turn, however Yusei still takes Battle Damage (Yusei 1000 → 800 Life Points). Jean activates "Speed World 2's" effect. removing 4 Speed Counters (Jean's SPC 6 → 2) to inflict 800 damage to Yusei for each Speed Spell in his hand. Jean reveals "Speed Spell - Tyrant Force", so Yusei takes 800 damage, but Yusei activates the effect of "Damage Eater" from his Graveyard, removing it and 1 card in his hand from play to negate the damage and increase his Life Points equal to the damage he would taken[Notes 1] (Yusei 800 → 1600 Life Points). Jean sets 2 cards ("Reanimation Wave" and "Superficial Peace") and ends his turn.
Turn 20: Yusei Fudo
(Yusei's SPC 12; Jean's SPC 3)
Yusei draws "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow"(Yusei's Deck 4 → 3). He then activates "Speed World 2's" effect, removing 10 Speed Counters (Yusei's SPC 12 → 2) to destroy "Lightning Tricorn". "Junk Destroyer" attacks Jean directly, but Jean activates "Reanimation Wave" to halve the Battle Damage he takes (Jean 4000 → 2700 Life Points) and Special Summon "Lightning Tricorn" from the Graveyard at the end of the Damage Step (2800/2000) in Attack Position. Yusei summons "Sonic Chick" (300/300) in Defense Position and ends his turn.
Turn 21: Jean
(Yusei's SPC 3; Jean's SPC 4)
Jean draws "Thousand Crisscross". He then summons "Rhinotaurus" (1800/600) in Attack Position. "Lightning Tricorn" attacks and destroys "Junk Destroyer" (Yusei 1600 → 1400 Life Points). "Rhinotaurus" attacks and destroys "Sonic Chick". Since two of Yusei's monsters were destroyed in battle during the same Battle Phase, "Rhinotaurus" may attack twice during this Battle Phase. "Rhinotaurus" attacks Yusei directly.
Andre vs. unknown DuelistEdit
Turn ?: Unknown opponent
"Command Knight attacks Andre directly (Andre 1000 → 0 Life Points).
Differences in adaptationsEdit
- In the original, Yusei claimed to Jean that he didn't know that team battles would be this fun and complex until he battled Team Unicorn and that he was happy to battle Jean and his teammates. In the dub, Yusei claimed to Jean he learned a lot about teamwork by watching Team Unicorn Duel, but he can't understand why Jean would want to beat him by taking away what a Duelist treasures most as he believed that Jean would want to win through force not through a technicality given his personality and tactics.
- Lightning Tricorn's OCG/TCG effect was explained in the dub instead of its anime effect.
- ↑ Although not shown, the card Yusei removed from his hand was "Backup Warrior" as it is no longer in Yusei's hand on the next turn.
