Recycle Rerhinobot00:14

Recycle Rerhinobot

The Summoning of "Recycle Rhinobot"

Lillybot draws. She then activates "Eco Spell - Reduce Waste", letting her banish two "Junk Robot" monsters from her Deck to add a "Junk Robot" monster from her Deck to her hand. She banishes "Junk Robot Cleanaga" and "Junk Robot Computerkong" and adds "Junk Robot Camelcycle". Lillybot Normal Summons "Camelcycle" (800/1600) and activates "Eco Spell - Recycle", letting her Special Summon two banished "Junk Robot" monsters. She Summons "Cleanaga" (1200/800) and "Computerkong" (1000/1000), both in Attack Position. Lillybot overlays her Level 4 EARTH Machine-Type "Camelcycle", "Cleanaga" and "Computerkong" to Xyz Summon "Recycle Rhinobot" (2700/2000, ORU: 3) in Attack Position. It attacks "Gagaga Magician", but Yuma activates his face-down "Half Unbreak", preventing its destruction by battle and halving the Battle Damage (Yuma: 4000 → 3400 LP).

Turn 3: Yuma
Yuma draws "Gagaga Girl" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1000/800). He then equips "Gagaga Girl" with "Wonder Wand", increasing its ATK by 500 ("Gagaga Girl": 1000 → 1500 ATK). Yuma activates the effect of "Gagaga Magician", changing its Level to 8 until the End Phase ("Gagaga Magician": CG Star 4 → 8). He then activates "Gagaga Thunder", inflicting 300 damage to Lillybot for every Level of difference between his two "Gagaga" monsters (Lillybot: 4000 → 2500 LP). Yuma Sets a card.

Turn 4: Lillybot
Lillybot draws. She then Normal Summons "Junk Robot Teapot Kangaroo" (800/1200). Lillybot activates the effect of "Recycle Rhinobot" three times, detaching all of its Overlay Units ("Recycle Rhinobot": 3 → 0 ORU) to increase the ATK of a monster she controls by 500 for each one detached ("Teapot Kangaroo": 800 → 1300 → 1800 → 2300 ATK). "Recycle Rhinobot" attacks "Gagaga Girl", but Yuma activates his face-down "Gagagaguard" as he controls two or more "Gagaga" monsters, preventing the destruction of "Gagaga" monsters by battle this turn (Yuma: 3400 → 2200 LP). "Teapot Kangaroo" attacks "Gagaga Magician" (Yuma: 2200 → 1400 LP). During the End Phase, the effect of "Recycle Rhinobot" activates as it has no Overlay Units, destroying the monster Lillybot controls with the lowest ATK and inflicting damage to both players equal to its original ATK. "Teapot Kangaroo" is destroyed (Lillybot: 2500 → 1700 LP, Yuma: 1400 → 600 LP).

Turn 5: Yuma
Yuma draws "Star Light, Star Bright" and subsequently activates it, changing the Level of "Gagaga Girl" to that of "Gagaga Magician" as they respectively have 1000 ATK and 1000 DEF ("Gagaga Girl": CG Star 3 → 4). He then overlays his Level 4 "Gagaga Magician" and "Gagaga Girl" to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000, ORU: 2) in Attack Position. As "Gagaga Girl" was used in an Xyz Summon with another "Gagaga" monster, the ATK of a monster Lillybot controls is decreased to 0 via its effect ("Recycle Rhinobot": 2700 → 0 LP). "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Recycle Rhinobot" (Lillybot: 1700 → 0 LP).

Differences in adaptations

  • Sakiyomi JumBANG! appearing in the World Duel Carnival ad are removed.
  • The revealed electrical wires on the cord Yuma tried to connect on Lillybot is removed.
  • The close-up of "Gagaga Girl" being summoned and being equipped with Wonder Wand are cut. Also cut from the dub is "Gagaga Girl" referring to "Gagaga Magician" as "Gagaga-senpai".
  • "Gagaga Girl" is given more clothing.


  • When Lillybot won the duel against Yuma for the first time, her WIN screen shows her with her pink ribbon attached, although she had only worn the ribbon moments after. This was corrected in the English dub.
  • When Lillybot attacked Yuma with "Wind-Up Zenmaister", "Zenmaister" remained with 1900 ATK Points. However, due to its effect, it should have increased to 2500.
  • In the Italian dub, "Wind-Up Zenmaister" is called "Wind-Up Zenmaines".
  • After Yuma's second turn during his second duel with Lillybot, Astral mentions that if Yuma had activated "Gagaga Magician"'s level-changing effect to change it to a Level 3 monster, he could have summoned "Number 17: Leviathan Dragon" and used "Gagaga Girl"'s ability to make "Recycle Rhinobot"'s ATK 0. Astral states that if Yuma did this, he could have won the Duel on that very turn. However, this is untrue - Lillybot still had 4000 LP, so even if Yuma used "Leviathan Dragon"'s ability to increase its ATK to 2500, Lillybot would still have 1500 LP left.
