As Yuma, Shark and Kaito continue struggling against E'Rah, Yuma's father appears, and a shocking truth about Yuma and the others emerges.

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo, Kaito Tenjo & Ryoga "Shark" Kamishiro vs. E'Rah

Duel continues from the previous Rank.

Turn 8: Shark
Shark switches "No. S39: Utopia the Lightning" and "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" to Defense Position. Next, he activates "Modify Deep Blue", banishing "Bahamut Shark" to overlay two Level 4 "Abyss Seeds" from his Deck and Xyz Summon "No. 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark" (2600/2100). Since Shark Special Summoned a monster, the effect of E'Rah's "Sea of Rebirth" activates, allowing her to Special Summon "Strain Nuke" (0/???) from her Deck. Shark attacks "Bahamut Shark E'Rah" with "Spider Shark", activating the latter's effect; he detaches 1 Xyz Material to reduce the ATK of all of E'Rah's monsters by 1000 ("Bahamut Shark E'Rah" 2700 → 1700) ("Utopia the Lightning E'Rah" 5100 → 4100) ("Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon E'Rah" 3500 → 2500). "Spider Shark" destroys "Bahamut Shark E'Rah". Due to the effect of "Shifting Land", E'Rah's Life Points become equal to the combined ATK of her monsters (E'Rah 11300 → 6600). Shark Sets 1 card. E'Rah activates her face-down "World Cycle".

Turn 9: E'Rah
E'Rah uses the effect of "World Cycle" to draw "Strain Bomb", and destroy it afterwards, at the cost of half her Life Points; however, since "Shifting Lands" makes her Life Points become equal to the ATKs of the monsters she controls, they don't suffer alterations. Since "Strain Bomb" was destroyed, its effect activates, destroying E'Rah's "Strain Nuke" and inflicting Shark 2000 damage (Shark 2800 → 800). Due to the effect of "Sky of Endless Night", E'Rah attaches her destroyed "Strain Nuke" to Yuma's "Utopia the Lightning". Now, the effect of "Strain Nuke" allows "Utopia the Lightning E'Rah" to attack all opponent monsters once each. E'Rah attacks with "Utopia the Lightning E'Rah", with Shark using the effect of "Spider Shark" to decrease the ATK of E'Rah's monsters by 1000 ("Utopia the Lightning E'Rah" 4100 → 3100) ("Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon E'Rah" 2500 → 1500), which also decreases her Life Points due to the effect of "Shifting Land" (E'Rah 6600 → 4600). "Utopia the Lightning E'Rah" destroys "Spider Shark" (Shark 800 → 300), "Utopia the Lightning" and "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon". E'Rah attacks Yuma directly with "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon E'Rah".

Duel continues in the next Rank.
