"Primo's Plan, Part 4" known as "Accel Synchro! Be Born! Shooting Star Dragon!" in the Japanese version is the one-hundredth and ninth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
Yusei and Primo's battle continues. Yusei's Stardust Dragon has been absorbed by Primo's monster, after losing his concentration by Primo's taunting while attempting to perform Accel Synchro. As long as his stolen Stardust Dragon is not recaptured, Yusei cannot possibly defeat the Machine Emperor. Yusei is in agony as he fights desperately to the very limits of his strength, transmitting his pain to Jack, Luna, Crow, and Akiza. Trial and Error occur over and over. When he finally gets back Stardust Dragon, Yusei is uncertain in trying to perform an Accel Synchro Summon again, since he doesn't know if he can do it this time. However, at this time, a huge tornado envelops New Domino City, Stardust, and even Yusei. In the midst of a desperate situation and barely hanging onto the escape stairway, Akiza, not relying on her psychic powers, tries to save Haruka who was pulled out the windows by the tornado's gale forces.
Featured Duel: Yusei Fudo vs. Primo
Turn 11: Primo
"Meklord Emperor Wisel" has just equipped itself with "Stardust Dragon" via its own effect, increasing its ATK by "Stardust Dragon's" ATK ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 2500 → 5000/0). Primo activates his face-down "Wise A3", Tributing "Wisel Attack" ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 5000 → 3800/0) to Special Summon "Wisel Attack 3" (1600/0) in Attack Position ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 3800 → 5400/0). "Meklord Emperor Wisel" now has the ability to inflict piercing damage. "Meklord Emperor Wisel" attacks "Formula Synchron", but Yusei activates his face-down "D2 Shield", doubling "Formula Synchron's" DEF ("Formula Synchron": 200/1500 → 3000). The attack continues, destroying "Formula Synchron". "Meklord Emperor Wisel" then inflicts piercing damage to Yusei (Yusei 3300 → 900). The effect of "Skiel Carrier 5" activates, inflicting 300 damage to Yusei (Yusei 900 → 600). Thanks to the second effect of "D2 Shield", Yusei can draw 1 card as the monster targeted by "D2 Shield" has been destroyed. Primo ends his turn.
Turn 12: Yusei
(Primo's SPC: 11; Yusei's SPC: 7)
Yusei draws. His hand contains "Necro Linker" and "Turret Warrior". He then activates the effect of "Speed World 2", removing 7 Speed Counters (Yusei's SPC 7 → 0) to draw 1 card("Arbitrator"). He then Normal Summons "Necro Linker" (600/0) in Defense Position. Yusei then sets a card face-down and ends his turn.
Turn 13: Primo
(Primo's SPC: 12; Yusei's SPC: 1)
Primo draws. He then activates his face-down Trap "Wise T3", Tributing "Wisel Top" ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 5400 → 4900/0) to Special Summon "Wisel Top 3" (600/0) in Attack Position ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 4900 → 5500/0). "Meklord Emperor Wisel" then attacks "Necro Linker", but Yusei activates "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" to negate the attack, however Primo activates the effect of "Wisel Top 3", negating the effect of "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" and destroying it. Yusei activates the effect of "Arbitrator", discarding it from his hand to end the Battle Phase. Primo ends his turn.
Turn 14: Yusei
(Primo's SPC: 12; Yusei's SPC: 2)
Yusei draws "Rescue Warrior" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1600/1700) in Attack Position. "Rescue Warrior" attacks "Meklord Emperor Wisel". "Meklord Emperor Wisel" destroys "Rescue Warrior", but due to the latter's effect, Yusei takes no Battle Damage. The effect of "Skiel Carrier 5" activates (Yusei 600 → 300). The second effect of "Rescue Warrior" activates, allowing Yusei to regain control of his "Stardust Dragon" (2500/2000). Since "Stardust Dragon" is no longer equipped onto "Meklord Emperor Wisel", its ATK decreases ("Meklord Emperor Wisel": 5500 → 3000/0). Yusei then activates the effect of "Necro Linker", Tributing it to Special Summon "Formula Synchron" from his Graveyard (200/1500) in Attack Position. He then activates "Formula Synchron"'s effect to draw 1 card. Since the monster Summoned by "Necro Linker" cannot be used for a Synchro Summon during the turn it is activated, Yusei ends his turn.
Turn 15: Primo
(Primo's SPC: 12; Yusei's SPC: 3)
Primo draws. He then activates "Meklord Emperor Wisel's" effect to equip itself "Stardust Dragon", however, Yusei activates the effect of "Shooting Star Dragon", allowing him to Synchro Summon it during Primo's turn. He then tunes "Stardust Dragon" with "Formula Synchron" to Accel Synchro Summon" "Shooting Star Dragon" (3300/2500) in Attack Position. Since "Stardust Dragon" left the field, The effect of "Meklord Emperor Wisel is negated as it has lost its original target.
Differences in adaptations
- In the English dub, the scene where the tornado cuts through and destroys parts of the city is cut.
- Also in the dub, the scene where Carly was almost swept away by the tornado and was hanging onto a lamp post for dear life is cut. This will cause confusion because in the beginning of the episode, She was at her car. When Shooting Star Dragon emerged, she was at the ground for no particular reason unless the viewer has seen the Japanese version.
- The scenes where Haruka gets swept out the window by the tornado, leaving her hanging onto a ledge and Akiza saving her without her psychic powers is cut out in the dub.
- In the dub, the scene where the windows shatter at the hospital is cut. However, in the scene after Shooting Star Dragon is summoned, shattered glass can be seen in the background.
- The entire Accel Synchro summoning sequence music Clear Mind (song) is replaced with just instrumental music from the dub.
- In the original, Primo was surprised saying Yusei was gone after Yusei vanished in his Accel Synchro performance, but in the dub he panics and says "Uh oh!".
- The scene of Shooting Star Dragon emerging from the tornado is cut. As well as when Shooting Star Dragon blows away the clouds is cut.
- For what is now only the second time in the Yu-Gi-Oh! series anime history, a new insert song was used called Clear Mind and it plays during the sequence before and during the summoning of Shooting Star Dragon all the way up until the end credits. This is also the fourth time the genre's history that a insert song was used at all.
- After regaining control of Stardust Dragon, Yusei makes a grin. This could be referencing his first duel with Ghost. In his duel with Ghost he made a similar grin after regaining control of Stardust Dragon using Synchro Material.
- In the dub, Primo states that if he attacks Formula Synchron with Meklord Emperor Wisel, Yusei will take 5400 points of damage and lose. In the Original, Placido said that Yusei will take 3300 points of damage. These are both incorrect as Yusei would have taken 3900 points of damage. (However any of the stated amounts would still have resulted in Yusei's defeat.)
