"Training Days, Part 2", known as "Certain-Kill Ninja Art! The Most Dreadful Ninja Appears" in the Japanese version, is the sixteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. It first aired in Japan on July 25, 2011 and in the United States on March 24, 2012.

It's a Duel against Roku's former disciple, Kaze! Kaze draws his "Ninja" monsters, pinning Yuma down, but believing in the power of his friends, Yuma continues this battle even after Kaze Summons his Trump Card, "Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armor Ninja". However thanks to Roku and Astral, Yuma wins the Duel.

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Kaze

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 2: Kaze
Kaze Sets two cards.


"Dododo Warrior" is Summoned.

Turn 3: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Dododo Warrior" (2300/900) in Attack Position via its own effect, decreasing its ATK by 500 ("Dododo Warrior" 2300 → 1800). Yuma activates "Full-Force Strike", letting him target a monster he controls and prevent battle damage from being inflicted to either player from battles involving the target but any monster that battles the target will be destroyed at the end of the Damage Step. He targets "Dododo Warrior", who attacks "Blade Armor Ninja", but Kaze activates his face-down "Armor Ninjitsu Art of Freezing", ending the Battle Phase as he controls a face-up "Ninja" monster. As long as it remains face-up, Yuma's monsters cannot change their battle positions. Yuma Sets a card.

Turn 4: Kaze
Kaze activates "Spy Attack", letting him send a monster in his hand to the Graveyard to look at a card in Yuma's Spell & Trap Card Zone. He sends "Aqua Armor Ninja" and sees that Yuma's Set card is "Gagagaback". "Blade" attacks and destroys "Gagaga Magician" (Yuma 2600 → 1900). Kaze activates the effect of "Blade", detaching an Overlay Unit to allow it to attack again. "Blade" attacks and destroys "Dododo Warrior" (Yuma 1900 → 1500). As he controls a face-up "Ninja" monster, Kaze activates his face-down "Armor Ninjitsu Art of Rut mist", which will halve the ATK of all Special Summoned monsters Yuma controls as long as it remains face-up. As a "Gagaga" monster he controls was destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, Yuma activates his face-down "Gagagaback", Special Summoning monsters destroyed by battle this turn and taking 600 damage for each of them. Yuma Special Summons "Gagaga Magician" (1500 → 750/1000) and "Dododo Warrior" (2300 → 1150/900), both in Attack Position (Yuma 1500 → 300).

Turn 5: Yuma
As he controls a "Gagaga" monster, Yuma activates "Gagagabolt", letting him target and destroy a card his opponent controls. He destroys "Blade". "Gagaga Magician" attacks directly (Kaze 4000 → 3250). "Dododo Warrior" attacks directly, but Kaze activates the effect of the "Aqua Armor Ninja" in his Graveyard, banishing it to negate the attack. The effect of "Dododo Warrior" prevents it from being affected by Spell, Trap or monster effects when it attacks, so "Aqua Armor Ninja" and "Armor Ninjitsu Art of Rust Mist" do not affect it ("Dododo Warrior" 1150 → 2300). The attack continues (Kaze 3250 → 950). Yuma Sets a card.

Turn 6: Kaze


No. 12 Armored Ninja - Crimson Shadow

"Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armor Ninja" is Summoned.

Kaze activates "Armor Ninjitsu Art of Alchemy", letting him destroy all face-up "Ninjitsu Art" cards he controls to draw two cards. He destroys "Art of Rust Mist" and "Art of Freezing". Thus, the ATKs of "Gagaga Magician" and "Dododo Warrior" return to their original values ("Gagaga Magician" 750 → 1500, "Dododo Warrior" 1150 → 2300) and they may change their battle positions. As he controls no monsters and Yuma does, Kaze Special Summons "Earth Armor Ninja" (1600/1200) from his hand in Attack Position via its own effect. Kaze then activates "Armor Ninjitsu Art of Revival", letting him Special Summon a "Ninja" monster from his Graveyard. He Special Summons "Flame Armor Ninja" (1700/1000), whose effect activates as it was Special Summoned, increasing its Level by 1, to 5. Kaze overlays his two Level 5 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armor Ninja" (2400/1700) in Attack Position. "Crimson Shadow" attacks "Gagaga Magician", but Yuma activates his face-down "Guts Guard", changing the attack target to "Dododo Warrior" and preventing its destruction by battle this turn (Yuma 300 → 200).

Turn 7: Yuma
Yuma activates "Decrease", reducing the Level of "Dododo Warrior" by 2 until the End Phase. Yuma overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. "Utopia" attacks "Crimson Shadow", with Kaze activating the effect of "Crimson Shadow", detaching an Overlay Unit to prevent its destruction (Kaze 950 → 850). Yuma activates the Quick-Play Spell Card, "Revenge Attack", allowing "Utopia" to attack again as it failed to destroy a monster by battle, with its ATK increasing by 1000 ("Utopia" 2500 → 3500). "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Crimson Shadow" (Kaze 850 → 0).
