Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Fortuno

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 4: Yuma
Yuma draws "Kurivolt" and subsequently Normal Summons it (300/200). He then activates its effect twice, detaching both of the Overlay Units from "Number 16: Shock Master" ("Shock Master": 2 → 0 ORU) to Special Summon two "Kurivolt Tokens" (300/200 each) in Attack Position. Yuma activates "Voltage Summon", letting him Tribute all "Kurivolt Tokens" he controls to Special Summon two Level 4 monsters from his Deck with their ATK and DEF reduced to 0 and their effects negated. He Tributes the two "Kurivolt Tokens" to Special Summon "Ganbara Knight" (0/1800 → 0/0) and "Kagetokage" (1100/1500 → 0/0), both in Attack Position. Yuma overlays his Level 4 "Kagetokage" and "Ganbara Knight" to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000, ORU: 2) in Attack Position. "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Shock Master" (Fortuno: 4000 → 3800 LP), while "Kurivolt" attacks directly (Fortuno: 3800 → 3500 LP). Yuma Sets two cards.

Turn 5: Fortuno


No. 11 Big Eye

"Big Eye" is Summoned.

Fortuno draws. As Yuma controls an Xyz Monster and he controls no monsters, Fortuno Special Summons "Rainbow Shaman" (0/0) from his hand in Attack Position via its own effect. He then activates "Xyz Plant", which is moved to his Monster Zone (0/0) as a monster with the same Level as "Rainbow Shaman". Fortuno overlays his Level 7 "Rainbow Shaman" and "Xyz Plant" to Xyz Summon "Number 11: Big Eye" (2600/2000) in Attack Position. Fortuno activates the effect of "Big Eye", detaching an Overlay Unit ("Big Eye": 2 → 1 ORU) to take control of "Utopia", though "Big Eye" cannot attack this turn. "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Kurivolt" (Yuma: 3500 → 1300 LP). Fortuno Sets a card.

Turn 6: Yuma
Yuma draws "Dododo Warrior", but Fortuno activates his face-down "Freezing Dance", stopping Yuma from Summoning monsters from his hand as long as it remains face-up, but it will destroy itself during Yuma's second End Phase.

Turn 7: Fortuno
Fortuno draws. "Big Eye" attacks directly, but Yuma activates his face-down "Nitwit Outwit", sending the "Dododo Warrior" in his hand to the Graveyard and reducing the Battle Damage by its ATK (Yuma: 1300 → 1000 LP). "Utopia" attacks directly, but Yuma activates his face-down "Xyz Weight", reducing the ATK of "Utopia" by 800 for each Overlay Unit attached to it ("Utopia": 2500 → 900 LP) until the End Phase (Yuma: 1000 → 100 LP). Fortuno activates "Twilight Dance", preventing both players from Special Summoning monsters from their Graveyard.

Turn 8: Yuma


CNo. 39 Aspiration Emperor - Hope Ray

"Utopia Ray" is Summoned.

Yuma draws "Comeback" and subsequently activates it, letting him take control of a monster Fortuno controls that Yuma owns. He takes control of "Utopia". Yuma performs a Chaos Xyz Evolution with "Utopia" and its Overlay Units to Xyz Summon "Number C39: Utopia Ray" (2500/2000, ORU: 3) in Attack Position. He then activates its effect three times, detaching all of its Overlay Units ("Utopia Ray": 3 → 0 ORU) to increase its ATK by 500 and decrease the ATK of a monster his opponent controls by 1000 for each one detached ("Utopia Ray": 2500 → 4000 ATK, "Big Eye": 2600 → 0 ATK). "Utopia Ray" attacks and destroys "Big Eye" (Fortuno: 3500 → 0 LP).

Differences in adaptations

  • In the dub, when Astral make his "Observation Number 13", he also makes an extra "Observation Number 13a".
  • Fortuno's scream heard at the end after losing to Kite is removed.
  • Yuma explaining how he knew the Kite on the throne was not the real Kite is different in the dub compared to the original. In the original, it was because Kite was against actually inflicting pain to others. In the dub, it was because Kite prefers to get "Numbers" by himself rather than use followers or minions to get them for him.
