"Life is a Carnival: Part 2", known as "Invincible Good Luck! Numbers 7: Lucky Stripe" in the Japanese version, is the thirty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. It first aired in Japan on November 21, 2011, and aired in the United States on October 6, 2012.
Charlie McCay escapes on the single-track railroad and Yuma starts the Duel. But Charlie's "Number 7: Lucky Straight" possesses amazing luck. If he hits the jackpot by rolling the dice, then Charlie's Life Points will become 100,000. On the verge of giving up when all of his attempts to stop that strong luck become fruitless, Yuma discovers an unexpected strategy.
Turn 3: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Gagaga Magician" (1500/1000). He then activates "Monster Slots", letting him target a monster he controls and banish a monster in his Graveyard of the same Level. He will then draw a card. If the drawn monster is the same Level as the banished monster and the targeted monster, he may Special Summon it. Otherwise, the target and the drawn card will be banished. He targets the Level 4 "Gagaga Magician", banishes the Level 4 "Gogogo Golem" and draws the Level 3 "Gagaga Girl". Thus, "Gagaga Magician" and "Gagaga Girl" are banished.
Turn 4: Charlie
Charlie activates the effect of "Take a Chance" and rolls a 6, so his Life Points are multiplied by 5 (Charlie 20000 → 100000). Charlie activates "Release Change", Tributing the Level 1 "Majestic Jester" to Special Summon a monster with the same Level from his hand - "Dice Leveler" (0/0) in Attack Position. He then activates "Monster Slots", banishing the Level 1 "Majestic Jester" from his Graveyard to target the Level 1 "Dice Leveler". He draws another "Dice Leveler", which is Special Summoned (0/0) in Attack Position. Charlie Normal Summons a third "Dice Leveler" (0/0). He activates the effects of all three "Dice Levelers". He may roll a die for each. The Level of each will be increased by the result of each respective die. The result of each is 6, so all three become Level 7.
Turn 5: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Ganbara Knight" (0/1800). As he Normal Summoned a Level 4 monster, he Special Summons "Kagetokage" (1100/1500) from his hand in Attack Position via its own effect. Yuma overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. "Utopia" attacks "Lucky Straight", but Charlie activates his face-down "Dice Crisis", rolling a die. If the result is 6, he can equip "Dice Crisis" to "Utopia" to take control of it and reduce its ATK to 0. He rolls a 6, so he takes control of "Utopia" (2500 → 0). Yuma Sets a card.
Turn 6: Charlie
As Charlie begins his turn, Yuma activates his face-down "Commander of Swords" as there is a LIGHTWarrior-Type monster on the field. Charlie will reveal his drawn card. If it is a Spell or Trap Card, Yuma may either destroy it or a Spell or Trap Card Charlie controls. Charlie draws "Sun Scale" - a Spell Card. Yuma chooses to destroy it. (When this card was destroyed, Charlie lost the luck granted to him by Number 7). Its effect activates, inflicting 500 damage to Yuma (Yuma 1400 → 900). Charlie activates the effect of "Take a Chance". He rolls a 1, so his Life Points return to what they were before his initial activation of the card (Charlie 100000 → 4000). Also, the effects of all further die rolls are negated, so Charlie cannot use the effect of "Lucky Straight".
Turn 7: Yuma
Yuma activates "Comeback", returning control of a monster that he originally owned that is controlled by his opponent to his control. "Utopia" returns to his control. Yuma performs a Chaos Xyz Evolution, overlaying "Utopia" with its Overlay Units to Xyz Summon "Number C39: Utopia Ray" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. Yuma activates the effect of "Utopia Ray" three times, detaching all of its Overlay Units ("Utopia Ray" ORU 3 → 0) to increase the ATK of "Utopia Ray" by 500 and decrease the ATK of "Lucky Straight" by 1000 for each one detached ("Utopia Ray" 2500 → 4000, "Lucky Straight" 700 → 0). "Utopia Ray" attacks and destroys "Lucky Straight" (Charlie 4000 → 0).
The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
In both instances, the cards destroyed were Spells, and an unrelated gameplay effect occurred after (water dried up after the moon was destroyed, and Charlie's luck disappeared after the sun was destroyed).
Multiple times during the Duel, Astral makes statements such as "The chance of the next die roll being a 6 is 1/7776", which is factually incorrect (see gambler's fallacy). The chance of any die roll being a 6 is always 1/6 regardless of the outcomes of any previous die rolls. The correct statement here is "The chance of rolling five 6's in a row is 1/7776." This is specified more clearly in the English dub.
