Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki & Jack Atlas vs. Battle Beast & Sanders
Its effect lets the Battle Beast place all "Gladiator Beast" monsters in his Graveyard underneath it and negate the effects of all face-up monsters on the field. He places "Augustus", Laquari", "Gladiator Beast Andabata" and "Gladiator Beast Gyzarus" and negates the effects of "Tyrant". "Tyrant" attacks directly, but the Battle Beast activates the effect of "Great Fortress", letting him Special Summon a "Gladiator Beast" monster that is underneath it, but its effects are negated and its ATK becomes 1000 plus the number of monsters underneath "Great Fortress" times 1000, and it will become the new attack target. He Special Summons "Andabata" (1000 → 4000/2800). When a monster is destroyed by battle or card effect when "Great Fortress" is face-up, that monster's owner will take 500 damage for each monster sent to the Graveyard. The attack is redirected to "Andabatae", but Jack activates the effect of the "Red Armor" in his Graveyard, banishing it to prevent the destruction of "Tyrant" by battle (Jack: 1000 → 500). At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Great Fortress" places all "Gladiator Beast" monsters Special Summoned by its effect underneath it.
Yuya activates the Quick-Play Spell Card, "Performapal Guard Dance", preventing "Performapal" monsters he controls from being destroyed by battle this turn and preventing the battle damage. "Shieldrummer" attacks directly and the Battle Beast Special Summons "Gyzarus" (2400 → 3000/1500) with "Great Fortress". "Odd-Eyes Unicorn" attacks directly and the Battle Beast Special Summons "Laquari" (1800 → 2000/400) with "Great Fortress". "Gongato" attacks directly and the Battle Beast Special Summons "Augustus" (2600 → 1000/1000) with "Great Fortress". "Pararhino" attacks directly, but the Battle Beast activates the effect of "Gladiator Beast Noxious" in his hand, Special Summoning it (???/1000) in Defense Position as a direct attack was declared and making it the new attack target.
Yuya activates the effect of the "Guard Dance" in his Graveyard, banishing it to switch control of all "Performapal" monsters he controls that battled this turn with his opponent's monsters. Control of all monsters is switched. Yuya activates the effect of the "Pendulum Art and Clean" in his Graveyard, banishing it to shuffle a "Performapal" monster on the field into his Deck and destroy all monsters on the field that were Special Summoned this turn. He returns "Undercover Hippo" to destroy all monsters. As monsters were destroyed and sent to the Graveyard (Yuya's monsters went to the Extra Deck), the effect of "Great Fortress" inflicts 500 damage to their controllers for each one (BB: 300 → 0).
