Synposies Edit

Playmaker chases after the mysterious individual who attacked Jin, and challenges him to a duel. However, he has a hard time trying to deal with the mysterious man’s never-before-seen cards. In order to achieve victory, Playmaker uses the new card he received from Ai to counterattack!

Featured duel: Playmaker vs Unknown (Bohman) Edit

Duel continues from the previous episode

Turn 3: Unknown

Unknown has just attacked with "Flow Hydradrive". As an opponent's monster has declared an attack, Playmaker activates the effect of "Linkuriboh", Tributing it to change the attacking monster's ATK to 0 until the end of the turn ("Flow Hydradrive": 1000 → 0 ATK; Elphase: 2300 → 2000 ATK) Unknown ends his turn. The effect of "Linkuriboh" expires ("Flow Hydradrive": 0 → 1000 ATK) He ends his turn.

Turn 4: Playmaker

Playmaker draws "One-Time Passcode" and subsequently activates it, summoning a "Security Token" (Level 4, 2000/2000) in Defense Position (Elphase: 2000 → 2300 ATK). He uses "Elphase" and the "Security Token" to Link Summon "Cyberse Witch" (↙↓, 800/LINK-2) As "Elphase" left the field, Playmaker activates its effect, summoning "Defcon Bird" (A Level 4 or lower Cyberse) in Defense Position (Level 3, 100/1700). As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone "Cyberse Witch" points to, he activates its effect, banishing "One-Time Passcode" (A Spell) from his GY to add 2 cards (one Cyberse Ritual Monster, and 1 "Cynet Ritual") from his Deck to his hand and allowing him to Special Summon "Cyberse Wizard" (a Level 4 or lower Cyberse) from his GY ( Level 4, 1800/800). He activates "Cynet Ritual" from his hand, tributing his Level 4 "Wizard" and his Level 3 "Defcon Bird" to Ritual Summon "Cyberse Magician" in Attack Position (Level 7, 2500/2000). He sets a card. He attacks one of the copies of "Flow Hydradrive" with "Magician" with "Magician" gaining 1000 ATK when it attacks a Link Monster ("Magician": 2500 → 3500 ATK) As a Link Monster that "Judgement Arrows" battles, it doubles that monster's ATK ("Flow" 1000 → 2000 ATK) Unknown activates "Property Spray", tributing the other "Flow" to gain LP equal to its ATK (Unknown: 1400 → 2400 LP) and change all of Playmaker's monsters to the Tributed monster's attribute until the end of the turn ("Magician" and "Witch": DARK → WIND). The attack continues (Unknown: 2400 → 900 LP) At this point, Unknown's identity is revealed as Bohman. As "Flow" was destroyed, he Special Summons a "Hydradrive Token" to his field in Defense Position (Level 1, 0/0) and another due to "Hydradrive Generator's" effect as his LP are lower than Playmaker's. "Witch" attacks a "Token". Playmaker ends his turn. The effect of "Property Spray" expires ("Magician" and "Witch": WIND → DARK). He ends his turn.

Turn 5: Bohman

Bohman uses his "Token" to Link Summon "Coolant Hydradrive" (↓, 1000/LINK-1). The effect of "Generator" activates, Special Summoning a "Token" to his field. He uses it to Link Summon another "Coolant Hydrive" He activates the effect of "Spray" tributing one of his "Coolant"s to gain LP equal to its ATK (Bohman: 900 → 1900 LP) and change all of Playmaker's monsters to the WATER atribute ("Magician" and "Witch": DARK → WATER). As a WATER monster is on Playmaker's field, "Coolant" attacks directly ("Coolant: 1000 → 2000 ATK). The effect of "Magician" halves all damage Playmaker would take (Playmaker: 2000 → 1000 LP). As he dealt battle damage, Bohman Special Summons "Covered Hydradrive" (0/?) from his hand. It cannot be destroyed by battle and as long as Bohman controls another "Hydradrive" he takes no battle damage and all "Hydradrive" Link Monsters are destroyed at the start of his next turn. He ends his turn and "Spray's" effect expires ("Magician" and "Witch": WATER → DARK). He ends his turn.

Turn 6: Playmaker

Bohman discards one card to activate "Covered's" effect to restrict Playmaker to attacking with only one monster that turn. Playmaker activates his Skill, "Storm Access" as his LP are at most 1000 to add "Shootingcode Talker" to his Extra Deck. He banishes "Elphase" and "Dotscraper" to Special Summon "Degrade Buster" (Level 7, 2500/2000) from his hand. As "Dotscaper" was banished, he activates its effect, Special Summoning it in Defense Position. He activates the effect of "Linkuriboh" in his GY, tributing his Level 1 "Dotscaper" to summon it from the GY. He activates "Break and Reuse" destroying "Linkuriboh" to Special Summon "Defcon Bird" from his GY in Attack Position. He uses "Degrade" and "Defcon" to Link Summon "Recovery Sorcerer" (↙↘, 1500/LINK-2). He activates its effect to Special "Linkuriboh" from his GY. He uses "Linkuriboh" and "Recovery Sorcerer" to Link Summon "Shootingcode Talker" (↑←↓, 2300/LINK-3). He activates its effect, granting it an additional attack that turn for every monster it points to, meaning a total of 3 attacks. He attacks "Coolant" and the effect of "Coolant" activates, summoning a "Token", which Playmaker attacks and destroys. He attacks "Covered", with "Shootingcode" losing 400 ATK as the opponent controls only 1 monster. ("Shootingcode": 2300 → 1900 ATK). The attack continues (Bohman: 1900 → 0 LP).
