Featured Duel: Zuzu Boyle vs. Chojiro Tokumatsu

Yuzu VS Chojiro

Zuzu vs. Chojiro.

At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Crossover Acceleration" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel and a Turbo Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.

Turn 1: Chojiro
Chojiro Normal Summons "Flower Cardian Pine" (100/100). He Tributes "Pine" to Special Summon "Flower Cardian Pine with Crane" (2000/2000) from his hand in Attack Position via its own effect, as "Pine" was a Level 1 "Flower Cardian" monster that was not Special Summoned via the effect of another "Flower Cardian" monster. The effect of "Pine with Crane" activates, letting Chojiro draw a card. If the drawn card is not a "Flower Cardian" monster that can be Special Summoned, it is sent to the Graveyard. He draws "Fraud Freeze", so it is sent to the Graveyard.

Turn 2: Zuzu
As her opponent controls a monster and she does not, Zuzu Special Summons "Solo the Melodious Songstress" (1600/1000) from her hand in Attack Position via its own effect. She then Normal Summons "Opera the Melodious Diva" (2300/1000), though that card may not attack the turn it is Summoned. Zuzu activates the Continuous Spell Card, "Fortissimo". This will let her increase the ATK of a "Melodious" monster she controls by 600 once per turn until her next Standby Phase. She uses this effect on "Solo" (1600 → 2200). "Solo" attacks and destroys "Pine with Crane" (Chojiro: 4000 → 3800 LP).

Turn 3: Chojiro
Chojiro activates "Card Regeneration", letting him Special Summon a "Flower Cardian" monster from his Graveyard, ignoring the Summoning conditions. He Special Summons "Pine with Crane" (2000/2000). He then activates "Card Preparation", letting him change the Level of a "Flower Cardian" monster he controls to 2 and then draw a card. He changes the Level of "Pine with Crane" to 2 and draws "Superkoikoi", while his hand contains "Synchro Gift" and "Diceversity". Chojiro activates "Superkoikoi", letting him draw three cards and reveal them. Any "Flower Cardian" monsters he reveals will be Special Summoned with their Levels as 2 and their ATK and DEF at 0. Any non-"Flower Cardian" monsters he reveals will be sent to the Graveyard and he will take 1000 damage for each one. He draws and Special Summons "Flower Cardian Zebra Grass with Moon", "Flower Cardian Paulownia with Phoenix" and "Flower Cardian Willow with Calligrapher", all in Attack Position. Chojiro tunes the Level 2 "Pine with Crane", "Zebra Grass with Moon" and "Paulownia with Phoenix" with the Level 2 Tuner monster "Willow with Calligrapher" to Synchro Summon "Flower Cardian Lightshower" (3000/3000) in Attack Position. "Lightshower" attacks "Solo", but Zuzu finds and activates the Action Card, "Flight", increasing the ATK of a monster she controls by 600 until the End Phase ("Solo": 2200 → 2800). She then finds and activates another copy of the Action Card, "Flight", increasing the ATK further ("Solo": 2800 → 3400). Chojiro finds and activates the Action Card, "Miracle", preventing the destruction of his monster by battle and halving the Battle Damage (Chojiro: 3800 → 3600 LP).

Turn 4: Zuzu
Zuzu's hand contains "Mozarta the Melodious Maestra", "Aria the Melodious Diva" and "Score the Melodious Diva". As Zuzu draws during her Draw Phase, the effect of "Lightshower" activates, inflicting 1500 damage to her (Zuzu: 4000 → 2500 LP). Zuzu Tributes "Solo" and "Opera" to Tribute Summon "Mozarta" (2600/2000) in Attack Position. Zuzu activates the effect of "Mozarta", letting her Special Summon a Level 4 or lower "Melodious" monster from her hand once per turn. She Special Summons "Aria" (1600/1200) in Attack Position. Zuzu activates the effect of "Fortimisso", targeting "Mozarta" (2600 → 3200). Chojiro finds an Action Card. "Mozarta" attacks "Lightshower", but Chojiro activates the Action Card, "Evasion", negating the attack. As "Aria" did not inflict battle damage this turn, Zuzu activates its effect, inflicting 800 damage (Chojiro: 3600 → 2800 LP). Zuzu equips "Mozarta" with "Piping Pipes". If Zuzu would take effect damage, she can increase the ATK of the equipped monster by that value and reduce the damage to 0.

Turn 5: Chojiro
Chojiro draws and activates "Super All-In!", letting him return a Synchro Monster he controls to the Extra Deck and Special Summon all monsters used for its Synchro Summon from his Graveyard with their Levels modified to 2. Then he can draw and reveal a card. If it is a "Flower Cardian" monster, it will be Special Summoned, ignoring its Summoning conditions and with its Level at 2. If it is a non-"Flower Cardian" monster, he must destroy all monsters he controls and halve his Life Points. He returns "Lightshower", Special Summons "Pine with Crane" (2000/2000), "Zebra Grass with Moon" (2000/2000), "Paulownia with Phoenix" (2000/2000) and "Willow with Calligrapher" (2000/2000) and draws "Flower Cardian Cherry Blossom with Curtain". He Special Summons "Cherry Blossom with Curtain" (2000/2000). Chojiro tunes the Level 2 "Cherry Blossom with Curtain", "Pine with Crane", "Zebra Grass with Moon" and "Paulownia with Phoenix" with the Level 2 Tuner monster "Willow with Calligrapher" to Synchro Summon "Flower Cardian Lightflare" (5000/???) in Attack Position. The effect of "Piping Pipes" prevents monsters other than the equipped monster from being attacked, so "Lightflare" attacks "Mozarta", but Zuzu finds and activates the Action Card, "Overpass", swapping the ATK of the battling monsters until the end of the Battle Phase. Chojiro activates the effect of "Lightflare", negating the activation of the opponent's Spell Card and destroying it. The attack continues and "Mozarta" is destroyed (Zuzu: 2500 → 700 LP).

Turn 6: Zuzu
Zuzu draws and Normal Summons "Soprano the Melodious Songstress" (1400/1400). The effect of "Soprano" allows her to Fusion Summon a Fusion Monster using "Soprano" and other monsters from her hand and field as materials. Zuzu fuses "Soprano" with "Aria" to Fusion Summon "Bloom Diva the Melodious Choir" (1000/2000) in Attack Position. "Bloom Diva" attacks "Lightflare", with the effect of "Bloom Diva" activating as it is battling a Special Summoned monster. "Bloom Diva" will not be destroyed by battle, the opponent will take the battle damage that Zuzu would have and the opponent's monster will be destroyed after damage calculation. However, the effect of "Lightflare" negates the effects of any monster it battles. Zuzu finds and activates the Action Card, "Overpass", which would swap the ATK of the battling monsters, but Chojiro activates the effect of "Gokou", negating the activation and destroying the card. Zuzu activates the effect of the "Score" in her hand, letting her send it to the Graveyard to banish two Spell Cards with the same name from her Graveyard and activate the effect of those cards. She banishes two copies of "Overpass", thus swapping the ATK of the battling monsters ("Bloom Diva": 1000 → 5000, "Gokou": 5000 → 1000). "Lightflare" is destroyed (Chojiro: 2800 → 0 LP).
