As Duel Academy plans for an upcoming field trip, the Society of Light is gaining strength rapidly, with most of the Obelisk Blue and Ra Yellow students having been converted. Meanwhile, Jaden Yuki faces off against Princess Rose, an enforcer sent by Sartorius, with the victor choosing the destination of the field trip.
|This summary is currently incomplete.|
Duel Academy's field trip date is approaching. Dr. Crowler and Vice-Chancellor Bonaparte argue about where they will take the students. Sartorius and the large contingent of Obelisk Blue students that Chazz Princeton converted to the Society of Light enter the room. Sartorius wants to pick where they go, and he has most of the student population backing up his choice. Jaden Yuki enters the office while accompanied by Tyranno Hassleberry, Bastion Misawa and Syrus Truesdale. Jaden states he also has a place to recommend for the school trip, but the Society members order him to get lost until he is smart enough to join them. Jaden states he has equal chance of choosing as he is currently the #1 student in the school. It's determined that Jaden will Duel a Society member, with the winner being permitted to choose the trip destination (Sartorius also mentions if Jaden loses then he has to promise to join the Society of Light). Sartorius chooses Princess Rose to represent the Society of Light. She claims she can see Duel Spirits and that hers are three frog princes, referencing well-known fairy tales. Jaden ultimately wins the Duel, and announces that the field trip will be to Domino City, the site of the Battle City tournament.
Featured Duel: Jaden Yuki vs. Princess Rose
Turn 2: Jaden
Jaden draws "Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbird" and subsequently Normal Summons it (800/600) in Attack Position. He then activates "Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbird's" effect to increase his Life Points by 500 for each card in Rose's hand. Rose currently has five (Jaden 4000 → 6500). "Air Hummingbird" attacks and destroys "T.A.D.P.O.L.E.". Since "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." was destroyed in battle and sent to the Graveyard, Rose activates its effect, adding another "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." from her Deck to her hand.
Turn 3: Rose
Rose draws. She then activates "Frog Resurrection" to discard the "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." in her hand and Special Summon the "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." in her Graveyard (0/0) back to the field in Attack Position. Rose then Tributes "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." in order to Tribute Summon "Des Frog" (1900/0) in Attack Position. Since "Des Frog" was Tribute Summoned, its effect activates, allowing Rose to Special Summon a number of "Des Frog" from her hand or Deck equal to the number of "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." in her Graveyard. With two "T.A.D.P.O.L.E." in her Graveyard, Rose Special Summons two more "Des Frogs" (1900/0 for both) from her Deck in Attack Position. Rose then activates "Des Croaking" to destroy every card that Jaden controls. All 3 "Des Frogs" attack directly (Jaden 6500 → 4600 → 2700 → 800). Rose then activates "Polymerization" to fuse her 3 "Des Frogs" together and Fusion Summon "D.3.S. Frog" (2500/2000) in Attack Position.
Turn 4: Jaden
Jaden draws "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" and subsequently Normal Summons it (800/1200) in Attack Position. Since "Bubbleman" was summoned while Jaden had no other cards on the field, its second effect activates, allowing Jaden to draw two cards ("Polymerization" and "Hero Ring").[Notes 1] Jaden's hand contains "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix", "Power Charger", "Feather Shot", "Hero Signal", and "Elemental Hero Clayman". Jaden then activates "Polymerization" to fuse "Bubbleman" with "Elemental Hero Clayman" and Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Mudballman" (1900/3000) in Defense Position. Jaden then Sets two cards.
Turn 5: Rose
Rose draws "Pot of Greed" and subsequently activates it to draw two cards. Rose then activates "Foolish Burial" to send "Treeborn Frog" from her Deck to the Graveyard. Due to the effect of "D.3.S. Frog", it gains 500 ATK for every "Treeborn Frog" in Rose's Graveyard. There is currently one ("D.3.S. Frog": 2500 → 3000/2000). Rose then activates "Flute of Hamelin" to target the "Treeborn Frog" in her Graveyard and force both players to send any "Treeborn Frog" in their hands/Decks to the Graveyard; Rose sends two "Treeborn Frog" to the Graveyard while Jaden sends none to the Graveyard ("D.3.S. Frog": 3000 → 4000/2000). "D.3.S. Frog" attacks and destroys "Mudballman". Jaden activates his face-down "Hero Signal" to Special Summon "Elemental Hero Avian" (1000/1000) from his Deck in Attack Position.
Rose then activates "De-Fusion" to send "D.3.S. Frog" to the Graveyard and Special Summon her three "Des Frogs" from her Graveyard (1900/0 each) in Attack Position. [Notes 2] One "Des Frog" attacks "Elemental Hero Avian", but Jaden activates his face-down "Hero Ring" and equips it to "Elemental Hero Avian". Due to the effect of "Hero Ring", "Avian" can't be attacked by monsters with 1900 or more ATK, so the attack made by the attacking "Des Frog" is nullified.
Rose then Tributes her three "Des Frogs" in order to Special Summon "Amphibian Angel - Mifrog" (1400/800) in Attack Position. Since Rose Special Summoned "Amphibian Angel - Mifrog" by Tributing three "Frog" monsters, she can Special Summon as many "Frog" monsters (except "Frog the Jam") from her Graveyard as possible; Rose Special Summons her 3 "Des Frogs" (1900/0 each) and "D.3.S. Frog" (2500 → 4000/2000) in Attack Position. Since Rose Special Summoned "Amphibian Angel - Mifrog" by Tributing at least two Frog monsters, all Spell and Trap Cards on the field are destroyed; "Hero Ring" is destroyed. Also since Rose Special Summoned "Amphibian Angel - Mifrog" by Tributing at least 1 Frog Monster, Jaden can't select "Amphibian Angel - Mifrog" as an attack target.
Turn 6: Jaden
Jaden draws "Pot of Greed" and subsequently activates it to draw two cards. Jaden then Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" (1200/800) in Attack Position. He then activates "O - Oversoul" to Special Summon "Clayman" (800/2000) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. Jaden then activates "Skyscraper". Now when an Elemental Hero attacks a stronger monster that monster will gain 1000 ATK during damage calculation only. Jaden then activates "Power Charger" and equips it to "Avian". Now when the equipped monster destroys a monster by battle, "Power Charger" will increase the equipped monster's ATK equal by the ATK of the destroyed monster. Jaden then activates "Feather Shot" to allow "Elemental Hero Avian" to gain one attack for each monster Jaden controls. As he controls three, "Avian" gains 3 attacks.
"Elemental Hero Avian" attacks 1 "Des Frog". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates ("Avian": 1000 → 2000/1000). "Avian" destroys "Des Frog" (Rose 4000 → 3900). After damage calculation, the effect of "Skyscraper" expires ("Avian": 2000 → 1000/1000). The effect of "Power Charger" activates ("Avian": 1000 → 2900/1000). "Elemental Hero Avian" attacks and destroys the second "Des Frog" (Rose 3900 → 2900). The effect of "Power Charger" activates again ("Avian": 2900 → 4800/1000). "Elemental Hero Avian" attacks and destroys the third "Des Frog" (Rose 2900 → 0).
