"Yuya's Memories!" is the twenty-first chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga.
The rematch between Yugo and Ren continues; however, Yugo's consciousness starts to fade, and he is forced to switch places with Yuya. On top of that, Ren Summons his most powerful monster. Now, Yuya has to solve the mystery of Ren's monster's powers, or he has no hope to win.
As Yuya finds himself in his mindscape looking over a cliff to a network of roots holding large glowing orbs, recognizing them as his memories, Ren takes his Turbo Duel against Yugo to another level by using his "White Moray" and "White Aura Whale" to Synchro Summon "White Aura Biphamet" to the field. It was at this time that Yugo's vision begins to blur, both Yuto and Yuri realizing their connection to Yuya is being disrupted. Biphamet destroys Yugo's "Clearwing Fast Dragon" despite its ATK reduced to zero.
Yugo attempts to activate his Sonic Cyclone trap, but is forced to switch with Yuya as he and their counterparts disappear. After managing to regain control of the Duel Runner, Yuya understands Yugo's intentions and uses Sonic Cyclone's effect to destroy "Speedroid Hexasaucer" in his Pendulum Zone to Special Summon it in Attack Position. This allows Yuya to half the inflicted battle damage between himself and Ren. After Yuya Normal Summons "Performapal Rolling Sambaa" and Sets a card, he using his Performapal's ability to evade battle damage, Yuya sees that he must figure out Biphamet if he is to stand a chance against Ren.
Featured Duel: Yugo/Yuya Sakaki vs. Ren
Duel continues from the previous Scale.
Turn 3: Ren
Ren obtains an Action Card. He activates the effect of "White Salvation", adding "White Moray" from his Graveyard to his hand, which he subsequently Normal Summons (600/200). Ren tunes "White Moray" to his now tuner "White Aura Whale" to Synchro Summon "White Aura Biphamet" (3300/???). Yugo activates the effect of "Clearwing Fast Dragon" to reduce the ATK of "Biphamet" to zero ("Biphamet": ATK 3300 → 0); regardless, "Biphamet" attacks and destroys "Clearwing" (Yugo 4000 → 3200).[Notes 1] Ren activates the Action Card "Double Banking", sending "Full Fairing" from his hand to the Graveyard to allow "Biphamet" to attack a second time. "Biphamet" attacks Yugo directly, but Yugo activates his face-down "Sonic Cyclone", allowing him to destroy Spell/Trap Cards up to the number of monsters that were destroyed this turn.
At this point, Yugo switches places with Yuya.
Yuya understands Yugo's intentions and uses the effect of "Sonic Cyclone" to destroy "Speedroid Hexasaucer" in his Pendulum Zone. This activates the effect of "Hexasaucer", allowing Yuya to Special Summon it in Attack Position (100/1600). "Biphamet" attacks and destroys "Hexasaucer", but the Monster Effect of "Hexasaucer" activates, halving the battle damage to Yuya and inflicting the same amount of damage to Ren (Yuya 3200 → 1600) (Ren 2750 → 1150). During the End Phase, the effect of "Clearwing" wears off and "Biphamet" regains its ATK and effect.
Turn 5: Ren
Ren activates the Action Card "Reverse Lock", preventing Yuya from activating his Set cards this turn. He attacks "Rolling Sambaa" with "Biphamet", but Yuya activates the former's effect, switching its battle position to negate the attack. Despite that, "Biphamet" attacks "Rolling Sambaa".[Notes 1] Yuya activates the effect of "Speedroid Marble Machine" in his Pendulum Zone, switching "Rolling Samber" back to Attack Position and preventing its destruction by battle or card effects this turn. The attack continues, but Yuya activates the other effect of "Rolling Sambaa", banishing "Sonic Cyclone" from his Graveyard to reduce the battle damage to zero. Ren activates the effect of "White Salvation", adding "White Moray" from his Graveyard to his hand, and Sets 1 card.
Duel continues in the next Scale.
