"It's in the Cards, Part 2", known as "Chaos Xyz Change! Light of Hope, Hope Ray!!" in the Japanese version, is the eighteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. It first aired in Japan on August 8, 2011 and in the United States on April 7, 2012.

The duel between Yuma and Fortuno continues. Fortuno pushes Yuma into a corner as he summons "Number 11: Big Eye". Despite Astral's acceptance of defeat, Yuma's unwillingness of surrendering leads the two to unlock a new power!

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Fortuno

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 4: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Kurivolt" (300/200) and activates its effect twice, detaching both of the Overlay Units from "Number 16: Shock Master" ("Shock Master" ORU 2 → 0) 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 two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Shock Master" (Fortuno 4000 → 3800) and "Kurivolt" attacks directly (Fortuno 3800 → 3500). Yuma Sets two cards.

Turn 5: Fortuno


No. 11 Big Eye

"Big Eye" is Summoned.

As Yuma controls an Xyz Monster and Fortuno controls no monsters, he 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 Card Zone (0/0) as a monster with the same Level as "Rainbow Shaman". He overlays his two Level 7 monsters 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" ORU 2 → 1) to take control of "Utopia", though "Big Eye" cannot attack this turn. "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Kurivolt" (Yuma 3500 → 1300) and 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
"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). "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) until the End Phase (Yuma 1000 → 100). Fortuno activates the Continuous Spell Card "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 activates "Comeback", letting him take control of a monster Fortuno controls that Yuma owns. He takes control of "Utopia" and performs a Chaos Xyz Evolution with it and its Overlay Units, Xyz Summoning "Number C39: Utopia Ray" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. He activates its effect three times, detaching all of its Overlay Units ("Utopia Ray" ORU 3 → 0) 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, "Big Eye" 2600 → 0). "Utopia Ray" attacks and destroys "Big Eye" (Fortuno 3500 → 0).

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.
