Turn 6: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Gagaga Magician" (1500/1000). He then activates "Gagaga Illusion" which, as he controls a "Gagaga" monster, allows him to Special Summon a monster from the Graveyard and change its Level to match that of "Gagaga Magician". He Special Summons "Kaiser Sea Snake" (2500/1000/Level 8 → 4) from Shark's Graveyard. Yuma Overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "No. 39: Utopia" (2500/2000), then immediately performs a Shining Xyz Change to Xyz Summon "No. S39: Utopia One" (2501/2000). He then proceeds to activate the effect of "Utopia One", detaching all of its Xyz Materials (3 → 0) and reducing his own Life Points to 1 (Yuma 4000 → 1) in order to banish all of Kyoji's monsters and inflict him damage equal to their ATK. However, Kyoji activates the second effect of "No. 77: The Seven Sins", allowing him to detach 1 Xyz Material to prevent it from being banished. Yuma then activates the Spell Card "Overlay Rebirth", allowing him to attach two monsters from the Graveyard as Xyz Materials for an Xyz Monster on the field. He attaches "Bahamut Shark" and "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" to "Utopia One". He then activates "Ultimate Xyz", allowing him to detach all the Xyz Materials from an Xyz Monster he controls to destroy one monster his opponent controls with an ATK less than the combined ATK of the monsters detached, and then inflict damage to Kyoji equal to the destroyed monster's ATK. Yuma detaches "Bahamut Shark" and "Galaxy-Eyes" to destroy "The Seven Sins" and inflict 4000 points of damage to Kyoji (Kyoji 8900 → 4900). Yuma then activates "Rank-Up-Magic Shining Force" to Rank-Up "Utopia One" into "No. S39: Utopia the Lightning" (2500/2000). The latter's effect activates, increasing its ATK to become equal to its Rank x1000 (2500 → 5000). Yuma attacks Kyoji directly with "Utopia the Lightning", but Kyoji activates his face-down "Despair Struggle" which, when he controls no other cards and would take damage, allows him to reduce his Life Points to 100 (Kyoji 4900 → 100), then draw 1 card for every 1000 points of damage he would have taken, drawing a total of 5 cards.
At this point, E'Rah takes over Kyoji and continues the Duel in his place.
Duel continues in the next Rank.
