Riley Akaba vs. Sector Security

Two of the three Sector Security officers control one copy of "Goyo Catapult" (800/2800) in Attack Position and all three have 4000 LP. Riley joins the Duel at this point, taking the 2000 LP intrusion penalty (Riley: 4000 → 2000 LP).

Turn 4: Riley
Riley Normal Summons "Film Magician" (0/0), which cannot be destroyed by battle and may make its ATK equal to the ATK of any monster that battles it during the Damage Step.

Turn 5: Security #1
Security #1 Normal Summons "Jutte Lord" (1600/1200). As it was Normal or Special Summoned, its effect activates, letting him Special Summon a "Jutte" monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Jutte Fighter" (700/900). Security #1 tunes the Level 4 "Jutte Lord" with the Level 2 Tuner monster "Jutte Fighter" to Synchro Summon "Goyo Catapult (800/2800) in Attack Position. He then activates its effect, letting him send a monster from his hand to the Graveyard to inflict 600 damage once per turn. He sends "Sasumata Gardna" (Riley: 2000 → 1400 LP).

Turn 6: Security #2

Riley's hand contains "Montage Fusion", "Critical Tuning", "Critical Overlay", and "De-Fusion". Riley Normal Summons "Critical Eye" (1400/1000). He then activates the Continuous Spell Card "Montage Fusion", allowing him to Fusion Summon a Fusion Monster as long as both him and his opponent control the required Fusion Material Monsters by using only his monster as a Material. Since Security #1 controls an EARTH monster, he fuses his "Critical Eye" to Fusion Summon "C/C/C Rock Sword of Battle" (2400/???) in Attack Position. "Rock Sword" attacks and destroys Security #1's "Goyo Catapult", with its effect increasing its ATK by the ATK of all other EARTH monsters on the field ("Rock Sword" 2400 → 4800; Security #1: 4000 → 0 LP). As he Tributed a monster with "Nightmare Critical Loop" this turn, Riley activates its other effect, letting him Tribute a monster that was Fusion, Synchro or Xyz Summoned using "Critical Eye" as a Material and to Special Summon "Critical Eye" from his Graveyard. He Tributes "Rock Sword" to Special Summon "Critical Eye" (1400/1000). As he controls "Critical Eye", Riley activates the Quick-Play Spell Card, "Critical Tuning", letting him change the Level of an opponent's monster, depending on what its current Level is. He targets Security #2's "Goyo Catapult", whose Level is 6, so it is changed to 3. Then, he may treat "Critical Tuning" as a monster with the same Type, Attribute, Level, ATK, and DEF as the targeted monster and treat "Critical Eye" as a Tuner monster with its effects negated. Finally, he may Synchro Summon a monster using "Critical Eye" and "Critical Tuning" as the Materials, but the Summoned monster will be destroyed during the End Phase. He tunes the Level 3 "Critical Tuning" with the Level 3 "Critical Eye" to Synchro Summon "C/C/C Rock Blaster of Battle" (2200/???) in Attack Position.

Riley activates the effect of "Rock Blaster", letting him decrease an opponent's monster's ATK by 1000 once per turn (Security #2's "Goyo Catapult" 800 → 0). "Rock Blaster" attacks and destroys Security 2's "Goyo Catapult", with its effect increasing its ATK equal to the total Levels of all EARTH monsters currently on the field x 200, except itself ("Rock Blaster" 2200 → 4000, Security #2: 4000 → 0 LP). Riley Tributes "Rock Blaster" using the effect of "Nightmare Critical Loop", Special Summoning "Critical Eye" (1400/1000) from his Graveyard. As he controls "Critical Eye", he activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Critical Overlay", letting him change an opponent's monster Level depending on its current Level. He targets the Level 6 "Goyo Catapult", changing it to Level 6. Then, he may treat "Critical Overlay" and "Critical Eye" as monsters with the same Type, Level, Attribute, ATK and DEF as the target with their effects negated. Finally, he may Xyz Summon a monster using "Critical Eye" and "Critical Overlay" as the Materials, but the Summoned monster will be destroyed during the End Phase. Riley overlays his two Level 6 monsters to Xyz Summon "C/C/C Rock Armor of Battle" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. He activates the effect of "Rock Armor", detaching an Overlay Unit to increase the ATK of "Rock Armor" by half of the combined DEF of all EARTH monsters on the field (2500 → 4900).
