Turn 2: Playmaker

He banishes "Linkslayer" and "Dotscaper" in his GY to Special Summon "Dual Assembwurm" (2800 → 1400/1000) in Attack Position. As "Dotscaper" was banished, Playmaker activates its effect to Special Summon it (0/2100) in Defense Position. Playmaker then activates the effect of "Cynet Defrag" in his GY, paying half his LP to Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster in his GY in Defense Position and equip "Cynet Defrag" to that monster (Playmaker: 4000 → 2000 LP).

At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm. Playmaker activates his Skill "Storm Access", which allows him to randomly access a card from a Data Storm when his LP is 1000 or less. Playmaker obtains "Vector Square Archfiend" and adds it to his Extra Deck.

Playmaker uses "Dual Assembwurm", "Dotscaper", and "Flick Clown" to Link Summon "Vector Square Archfiend" (2400/LINK-3/↙↑→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800) to the bottom-left Link Point of "Vector Square Archfiend". "Cyberse Wizard" attacks and destroys "Tentacluster Drillworm". "Vector Square Archfiend" attacks and destroys "Tentacluster Nautilus" (Ai-A: 3500 → 1100 LP). As "Vector Square Archfiend" destroyed a monster by battle, Playmaker activates its effect, letting him Tribute a monster to Special Summon the destroyed monster to an opponent's zone it points to and let it attack that monster again. He Tributes "Cyberse Wizard" to Special Summon "Nautilus" to the top Link Point of "Vector Square Archfiend". "Vector Square Archfiend" attacks and destroys "Nautilus" (Ai-A: 1100 → 0 LP).

Blue Angel VS Ai-B

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.

Turn 1: Blue Angel
Blue Angel activates the Field Spell "Trickstar Light Stage". As it was activated, Blue Angel activates its effect to add a "Trickstar" monster from her deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Lilybell". As "Lilybell" was added to her hand by a method other than drawing, Blue Angel activates its effect to Special Summon it (800/2000). Blue Angel Normal Summons "Trickstar Candina" (1800/400). As it was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Candina", to add 1 "Trickstar" card from her deck to her hand, adding "Trickstar Vision".

Blue Angel uses "Candina" and "Lilybell" to Link Summon "Trickstar Holly Angel" (2000/LINK-2/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Angel activates the Spell Card "Trickstar Vision" to Special Summon a "Trickstar" monster from her hand with its effects negated and ATK halved, then letting both players draw a card. Blue Angel Special Summons "Trickstar Narkissus" (1000 → 500/1800), draws, then subsequently Sets her drawn card. Blue Angel activates the effect of "Trickstar Lycoris" in her hand, revealing it to return a "Trickstar" monster on her field to her hand and Special Summon "Lycoris". Blue Angel returns "Narkissus" to her hand and Special Summons "Lycoris" to the bottom-left Link Point of "Holly Angel" (1600/1200). As a "Trickstar" monster was Special Summoned to a zone "Holly Angel" points to, its effect activates, inflicting 200 damage to Ai-B. As a "Trickstar" monster inflicted effect damage to Ai-B, the effect of "Light Stage" activates, inflicting 200 more damage (Ai-B: 4000 → 3800 → 3600 LP). As Ai-B took effect damage, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Narkissus" in her hand to Special Summon it (1000/1800).

Turn 2: Ai-B
As a card(s) was added to Ai-B's hand, the effect of "Lycoris" activates, inflicting 200 damage for each card added, with "Light Stage" inflicting 200 more (Ai-B: 3600 → 3400 → 3200 LP). As Ai-B took damage from the effect of a "Trickstar" monster, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage taken until the End Phase ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2200 ATK). Ai-B activates the Continuous Spell Card "Abyss Invitation". Ai-B activates the effect of "Tentacluster Darkwhip" (100/500) in its hand, paying 500 LP to Special Summon it (Ai-B: 3200 → 2700 LP). As a monster in Ai-B's hand activated its effect, the effect of "Narkissus" activates, inflicting 200 damage after the effect resolves (Ai-B: 2700 → 2500 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 4000 → 3800 LP). The effect of "Light Stage" activates (Ai-B: 2500 → 2300 LP), followed by the effect of "Holly Angel" ("Holly Angel": 2200 → 2400 ATK), then the effect of "Abyss Invitation" (Blue Angel: 3800 → 3600 LP). Ai-B then activates the Spell Card "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon two copies of a Machine monster with 500 or less ATK on the field from its Deck. It Special Summons two more copies of "Darkwhip" (100/500 each).

Ai-A uses the three copies of "Darkwhip" to Link Summon "Tentacluster Nautilus" (0/LINK-3/↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Nautilus" was Link Summoned, AI-B activates its effect to Special Summon a "Tentacluster" monster from its hand to a zone it points to. It Special Summons "Tentacluster Blastsucker" (400/400) to the bottom Link Point of "Nautilus". Ai-B then Normal Summons a second copy of "Blastsucker" to the bottom-left Link Point of "Nautilus". Ai-B then activates the effect of "Nautilus", letting it destroy all monsters "Nautilus" points to. As a Link Monster's effect that targets it on the field is activated, Ai-B activates the effect of "Blastsucker", destroying it to inflict 400 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 3600 → 3200 LP). The effect of "Abyss Invitation" then activates (Blue Angel: 3200 → 3000 LP). The effect of the other "Blastsucker" activates, followed by the effect of "Abyss Invitation" (Blue Angel: 3000 → 2600 → 2400 LP).

Ai-B activates the effect of the first "Blastsucker" in its GY, banishing it to inflict 400 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 2400 → 2000 LP). The effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates (Blue Angel: 2000 → 1800 LP). As a monster in Ai-B's GY activated its effect, the effect of "Narkissus" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Ai-B (Ai-B: 2300 → 2100 LP), followed by the effect of "Abyss Invitation" (Blue Angel: 1800 → 1600 LP), then "Light Stage" (Ai-B: 2100 → 1900 LP), then "Abyss Invitation" again (Blue Angel: 1600 → 1400 LP), then "Holly Angel" ("Holly Angel": 2400 → 2600 ATK). Ai-B activates the effect of the second "Blastsucker" in his GY (Blue Angel: 1400 → 1000 LP), then the effects of "Abyss Invitation", "Narkissus", and "Abyss Invitation" activate/apply once again in successive order, followed by "Light Stage" and "Abyss Invitation" once again, and then "Holly Angel" following after (Blue Angel: 1400 → 1000 → 800 → 600 → 400 LP; Ai-B: 1900 → 1700 → 1500 LP; "Holly Angel": 2600 → 2800 ATK).

Ai-B activates the Continuous Spell Card "Flexible Tentacluster". While active, Ai-B does not take the first instance of battle damage it would take per turn. It also allows Ai-B to Special Summon one of its banished "Tentacluster" monsters. It activates the latter effect to Special Summon "Blastsucker" (400/400). "Blastsucker" attacks "Lycoris". As Ai-B's monster is attacking, Blue Angel activates her face-down "Trickstar Cascade", returning a "Trickstar" card to her hand to negate the attack. She returns "Light Stage" to her hand.

Turn 3: Blue Angel
Blue Angel Normal Summons "Candina" (1800/400). As it was Normal Summoned, she activates the effect of "Candina" to add a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand, adding "Trickstar Temptation". Blue Angel uses "Narkissus" and "Lycoris" to Link Summon "Trickstar Black Catbat" (2000/LINK-2/←→) to the bottom-left Link Point of "Holly Angel". The first effect of "Holly Angel" activates (Ai-B: 1500 → 1300 LP), followed by "Abyss Invitation" (Blue Angel: 400 → 200 LP), then the third effect of "Holly Angel" ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2200 ATK). As Ai-B took damage from the effect of a "Trickstar" monster, the effect of "Black Catbat" activates, decreasing the ATK of each of Ai-B's monsters for each monster "Black Catbat" points to ("Blastsucker": 400 → 200 ATK). As Blue Angel controls a "Trickstar" monster, she activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Trickstar Temptation", returning a monster with ATK different from its original ATK to the hand. Blue Angel returns "Blastsucker".

"Holly Angel" attacks and destroys "Nautilus", with the effect of "Flexible Tentacluster" causing Ai-B to take no battle damage from that attack. "Black Catbat" attacks directly (Ai-B: 1300 → 0 LP).
