Go Onizuka ((おに)(づか) (ごう), Onizuka Gō) is a character appearing in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. He is a Charisma Duelist under the alias, Go Onizuka (Go (おに)(づか)), in Link VRAINS. Go also serves as Yusaku's rival. In the Enlgish dub, he is known as George Gore.



Go is a tan-skinned man with a built and bulky body. He has dark hair and chin beard and wears a gold hat with red-striped designs. He wears a greenish-grey jacket with a separate collar and a gold, animal-head-shaped necklace. Go is shirtless with only dark pants and a golden belt with a red stone in the center. His boots are buckled with gold plates. On his arms and abdomen he also wears the gold plates and dark, finger-less gloves.

When he takes on the appearance of Dark Onizuka, Go wears the same outfit, but with added black shoulder pads with yellow outline, purple spikes on his knees and a black and white wrestler's mask that covers his eyes, ornamented with a purple spike, small yellow details, and a long teal hair.

During the second season, Go dons a different outfit as a Bounty Hunter for SOL Technologies. As with his first outfit, he wears this outfit both in and out of LINK VRAINS. His blonde hair loses its highlights and becomes messy, and he wears a green visor with a thin black lens. He wears a form-fitting forest-green leotard with grey shoulder pads that is belted at the cuffs under olive green torso armor fastened with straps over the shoulders and the SOL Technologies logo over his heart, which is decorated at the torso with a grey plate in a similar manner to the "muscular" plate he wore on his abdomen. He also wears sand-green leggings, and olive-green boots and gloves with grey soles and hands that are lined by red. He uses a more standardized Duel Disk. After his loss to Soulburner, his appearance becomes more ragged and unkempt.

After completing his training in SOL Techologies and becoming a Human/Artificial Intelligence hybrid, Go became malnourished, his hair lengthens slightly, and he discards his visor, outer shoulder pads, gloves and gauntlets. In place, he wraps bandages around his forearms and waist. He initially concealed himself in a charcoal hooded cape with a gold lining before revealing himself. After SOL Technologies dissected Earth, Queen ordered the scientists to plac the data in Go's AI implant, merging him with Ignis data. His left iris and pupil can turn into an eye form of Earth, being orange with brown lines and pupil, and a cyan iris.


Go is shown to have a big ego and pride for being a popular Charisma Duelist and was angered when Playmaker was stealing his spotlight. He seems to have a soft spot for children as he often volunteers and donates to them at the orphanage where he grew up. He repeatedly makes it clear that he doesn't Duel for money, as he donates most of it and lives in a rather small warehouse. According to his manager, Go priotizes the audience's entertainment over winning Duels immediately.


"Onizuka" (鬼塚) is written with the characters of "ogre" and "mound". "Go" (豪) can be translated as "strong" or "manly"



When Go was little, he was living on the streets and he was forced to steal food in order to survive. But when Go went to an orphanage, he met Makoto Kimishima, another orphan, whom he protected from bullies. Go wanted to convince him to stand up for himself, but Makoto refused, being too kind for that. Despite their differences, Go and Makoto became good friends.[2]


Charisma duelist

GO is furious that Playmaker refuses his challenge.

Go first appeared in Link VRAINS about to face a duelist when an unnamed Knight of Hanoi attacked Link VRAINS.[3] He watched Playmaker's Duel against a Knight of Hanoi and was angered that Playmaker was stealing his spotlight.[4] After Playmaker defeated the Knight he and Blue Angel approached him and challenged him to a duel. He refused their challenge, claiming that he had no interest in either of them and left, much to their dismay. A few days later he was furious by the sudden popularity of Playmaker. His manager tried to calm him but Go claimed that he was the king of Link VRAINS and swore to crush Playmaker. His manager advised him to check out Speed Duels but they were interrupted by the arrival of mysterious man. The man introduced himself as the security manager of SOL Technologies "Akira Zaizen".

Akira's proposal

Go and his manager meet Akira Zaizen.

Go asked Akira what did Sol Technology want with him, the security manager answered that he wanted Go to defeat Playmaker and retrieve an AI Program that he had. Akira offered him a D-Board for Speed Duels and explained Playmaker's AI program was originally created by Sol Technologies, but due to certain events it fell into Playmaker's hands. Even they didn't know Playmaker's identity, Akira added that his AI program would determine the future of Link VRAINS and it fell into Hanoi's hand, Link VRAINS would be destroyed. Akira wished that Go protected Link VRAIN and if he succeeded, Sol Technologies would become his main sponsor. But Go refused to obey orders and asked Akira to leave. Some time later, he went to Link VRAINS.[5]

Duel against Playmaker

Go visited his old orphanage.

When Go visited his old orphanage, the children was engrossed in videos of Playmaker, paying no attention that Go visited. Shocked by this, Go accepted Akira's offer and drew Playmaker out with a Knight of Hanoi disguise. After revealing who he really are, Go challenged Playmaker to a Duel, declaring that the true hero of LINK VRAINS, would unmask Playmaker. When SOL Technology used a program to trap them and prevent Playmaker from logging out, Go then announced that Playmaker could only leave by defeating him. Upon being questioned of who hired him, Go replied that he wasn't telling that to a hacker and said his purpose here is to show that he is the stronger Duelist. The two began their Duel, with Go Normal Summoning "Gouki Suprex" and with its effect, Special Summon "Gouki Twist Cobra", ending his turn.

Go Link Summons "Gouki The Great Ogre".

As Playmaker brought out two monsters of his own, Go was amused and compared the current situation to a pro-wrestling tag match, declaring that he would win by the count of 3. He then lost half his LP by "Linkslayer", helped by "Cyberse Wizard's" effect, and is brought to his knees. Go got up before the count of three, staying true to his charisma style of deliberating putting himself in danger to heighten his audience's emotions. He then adds "Gouki Rising Scorpio" with "Suprex's" effect. He then activate his Skill, "Fighting Spirit" to bring back "Suprex" and Link Summon "Gouki The Great Ogre". After increasing "Great Ogre's" ATK, Go was confident it was enough to defeat Playmaker, declaring that it would be his finisher.[6] As Go moved in for the final blow, Playmaker activated a trap that leaves him with 100 life points left. He then smiled when Playmaker stayed to finish the duel despite having an escape route available. When Playmaker Link Summons Link Spider, he called it a weakling due to its low attack, however, annoyed when he realised that Playmaker took his attacks deliberately to satisfy the condition for Playmaker's Skill, calling Playmaker a copycat of his charisma style.

Go defeated by Playmaker.

He was then shocked when Playmaker performs multiple Link Summons to bring out 3 Link monsters. When Playmaker asked his "Decode Talker" to attack, Go questioned the use of attacking with a monster with lower attack, but when both his Great Ogre and Decode Talker are tied in attack, he tried to save Great Ogre with its effect. However, by the third attack, Great Ogre ran out of linked monsters for its effect and is destroyed by Decode Talker, costing Go the duel. As he gets up, he laughed, having enjoyed the duel with Playmaker. When he logged out, he stumbled, feeling the fatigue from the duel. He was surprised and moved to see the children waiting and clapping for him despite his loss. He then held up his champion belt and roared, and had fun with the children, with a big grin on his face.[7]

Another Case

Go saves Makoto.

Go saved Makoto, who was knocked unconscious and fell off a cliff in LINK VRAINS. Go came out of the data sea and failed to wake him up, but was visited by the person that attacked Makoto. The person noted Go was a Charisma Duelist, who wanted to know what was done to Makoto. The person explained they placed a virus into him, and if Go wished to cure him, he'd have to join The Knights of Hanoi to hunt Playmaker down. Go yelled out he wouldn't be their lackey and was disgusted that the person would let Makoto stay infected. Instead, Doctor Genome ordered him to tell Playmaker that if the latter wished to stop people from being infected, Playmaker should simply surrender himself to Dr. Genome. Genome left the offer to join the Knights of Hanoi and teleported away, infuriating Go. Later, Go was at the hospital, waiting at the operating room. His manager came, and Go informed him someone called the paramedics to pick Makoto up. Go blamed himself for Makoto's condition, and his manager remembered Makoto became a Duelist, and even won certain tournaments, when Go became famous in LINK VRAINS. At this point, it is revealed that Makoto and Go were childhood friends during their orphanage days.

Go meets Yusaku.

The two met when Go scared off bullies who were picking on Makoto, and Makoto convinced Go to be more gentle with fragile things, like a butterfly he captured to show Makoto. Go realized he should've stopped Makoto from his Duelist path, due to the danger it placed on him, but Go's manager assured him Makoto would not give up, and it wasn't Go's fault for this condition. The medics pushed Makoto's bed, and Go was informed the doctors could not wake him up. Go swore to save Makoto by defeating Dr. Genome. Yusaku, who overheard the conversation, left. Go saw him and realized Yusaku was also concerned about Makoto, who attended the same school. Yusaku gave out his name to Go, and left.

Duel against Doctor Genome

Go challenges Doctor Genome.

In LINK VRAINS, posing as Playmaker, Go Onizuka confronted the Knights of Hanoi, tossing them from their D-Boards and intercepting their programs. Dr. Genome arrived, and saw through Go's disguise. Go Onizuka confirmed this, and removed his program. Dr. Genome was pleased, believing Go would join their hunt after Playmaker. Go denied this, replying he only came for Makoto, and knew Playmaker's identity. Dr. Genome doubted Go knew Playmaker's identity, but agreed to Duel him, betting the virus-removal program for that identity. Before the Speed Duel began, Dr. Genome activated the Data Gale, conjuring black tornadoes that nearly threw Go off his D-Board.[8]

"Dark Onizuka" spits out "Gouki Poison Mist" on Genome's face.

Doctor Genome knew Go Onizuka's tactic was to let the weak gain the upper hand, then make a counterattack, like an entertainment style. Go confirmed this, surprising Genome for his answer. Go rushed Genome, who summoned "Hellix Marmotroll", which would prevent Go's strategy of boosting his monster's ATK. Go was disappointed by Genome's turn, and summoned three of his "Gouki" monsters to Link Summon "Gouki Thunder Ogre". He used the monsters he used as Link Summon materials to search his Deck for more "Gouki" monsters. Genome anticipated this, seeing his observations were correct. Much to his fans' surprise, Go equipped "Gouki Thunder Ogre" with "Gouki Dark Mask", and placed a mask on himself, declaring he'll fight as a heel, adding the "Dark" prefix to himself and his monster. In addition, using "Gouki Poison Mist", Dark Onizuka spit out a purple liquid on Genome's face, dealing 700 LP damage. In addition, Dark Onizuka summoned another "Gouki Rising Scorpio", which "Dark Thunder Ogre" threw on "Hellix Marmotroll". The attack destroyed Dark Onizuka's monster, inflicting 300 LP damage on Dark Onizuka, whose "Dark Thunder Ogre" dealt 500 LP damage on Genome. Genome wanted Dark Onizuka's DNA, and wished to combine it with Playmaker's DNA to create an even more powerful DNA.

The second effect of "Gothiclone" inflicts damage to "Dark Onizuka" equal to the Released "Dreadrat"'s ATK.

Dark Onizuka was grossed out by his weirdness, and used "Fighting Spirit" Skill to return "Gouki Rising Scorpio" on the field. Repeating his tactic, Dark Onizuka destroyed "Gouki Rising Scorpio", shaving his LP off by 300, to inflict 500 LP damage on Genome, and boosting "Dark Thunder Ogre's" ATK to 3000. "Dark Thunder Ogre" destroyed Genome's "Hellix Marmotroll", but the latter's effect protected Genome's LP. Dark Onizuka claimed he evolved, though Genome remembered his defeat against Playmaker. Thus, he changed his battling style, to a dark, heel one, that would do anything to win. Genome ignored this story, and still wished to find if Dark Onizuka had some DNA he could use, for that was something that cannot be changed, and preordained one's destiny. Resurrecting two of his "Hellix Marmotroll" with "Graveyard Incubation", Genome Link Summoned "Hellix Gothiclone", and had it attack "Dark Thunder Ogre". Both monsters could not be destroyed, and fell to the ground in a double knockout. Genome recalled this happened in the Duel against Playmaker, when "Decode Talker" and "Gouki The Great Ogre" clashed with each other. With that, Genome Released "Hellix Dreadrat" to inflict 1200 LP damage to Dark Onizuka.

"Dark Onizuka" activates the effect of "Octolock" to halve the damage of "Necro Darwin"'s ATK.

Pointing out Genome's fact that DNA preordains one's destiny, Dark Onizuka swore to crush Genome for such limits. He brought out "Gouki Rising Scorpio" and "Gouki Twist Cobra", and used the latter's effect to Release the former and boost "Dark Thunder Ogre's" ATK to 5300, and played "Gouki Tope con Hilo", to deal 3100 LP damage on Genome to end the Duel. Instead, Genome's "Regeneration Cure" prevented that damage, and summoned a "Hellix Token". Reviving "Hellix Dreadrat", Genome used it and "Hellix Token" to Link Summon "Hellix Necro Darwin". With "Gouki Twist Cobra" destroyed, "Dark Thunder Ogre's" ATK was boosted and inflicted 500 LP damage on Genome. This time, Genome was protected by "Hellix Necro Darwin", and its ATK was doubled. "Hellix Gothiclone" clashed with "Dark Thunder Ogre", and the former's effect released "Hellix Necro Darwin" to inflict damage equal to its ATK. To save himself, Dark Onizuka discarded "Gouki Octolock", halving down that damage, but fell on the ground, with 200 LP left.[9]

Go uses "Gouki Face Turn" to destroy "Gouki Dark Mask".

Dark Onizuka got back on his D-Board while Genome saw how tough his opponent was, and revived "Hellix Necro Darwin" to active his Skill, "Preserve Species", that cut Dark Onizuka's LP and "Dark Thunder Ogre's" ATK in half. Dark Onizuka crashed through a wall, having a hundred LP left, and barely able to stand on his D-Board. Genome forced Dark Onizuka's AI to remind about Genome's tactics, showing Dark Onizuka had no hope to win. Playmaker logged in to LINK VRAINS, and joined the two. Playmaker denied to have come to help Dark Onizuka, and swore if the latter lost, Playmaker would laugh at his defeat. Dark Onizuka listened to Playmaker, who believed Go would actually evolve and defeat Doctor Genome. Dark Onizuka's mask dissolved, and Go used "Gouki Face Turn" to destroy "Gouki Dark Mask" and revive his "Gouki Suprex". With his "Gouki Thunder Ogre" and "Gouki Suprex", Go Link Summoned "Gouki The Master Ogre". Using "Gouki Rematch", Go Special Summoned "Gouki Twist Cobra" and "Gouki Rising Scorpio", then returned them to his hand to negate Genome's "Hellix" monster's effects. "Gouki Master Ogre" attacked Genome's Hellix monsters, and made Go win the Duel.

Go takes the virus program from Genome.

Go cheered for his victory, and a moment later, took the virus program from Genome. Genome was unamused by Go evolving from a heel to a hero, but Go stated this was only to amuse the crowd, being the number 1 entertainer. Genome swore Go would regret defeating him and disappeared, while Go was focused on curing Makoto. Go also knew Playmaker wanted to encourage him to win, rather than mock him. Go swore to defeat him one day, but seeing the Knights of Hanoi destroying LINK VRAINS, proposed an alliance. Playmaker joined in, and so did Blue Angel. Later, Go fought a Knight of Hanoi, having his "Gouki The Master Ogre" destroy the Knight's "Jack Wyvern", finishing the Duel. Go joined up with Playmaker, asking him about Blue Angel's whereabouts, but Playmaker did not know. Later, Go, at the orphanage, watched how Kitamura's army confronted the Knights of Hanoi.[10]

Baira vs Blue Angel

Go, disguised as a bear, went into an alley. A Knight of Hanoi pursued him, until Go lifted his disguise off and declared a Speed Duel against the knight, having "Gouki The Great Ogre" attack him. Later, Go watched the Duel between Blue Angel and Baira at the orphanage.[11]

Towards the Hanoi Tower

Go meeting up with Blue Angel and Playmaker

Go logged in LINK VRAINS. He quickly met up with Playmaker and Blue Angel, the latter stating she was fighting for everyone, as those people look up to her. Go exclaimed the same, since he was the hero that needed to protect LINK VRAINS. Ai noted how full of energy Go was. Go noted that was the Ignis, who yelled out he had a name, Ai. Playmaker explained he came to stop the Tower of Hanoi, rescue Ghost Girl and confront the mastermind, Revolver. Blue Angel was shocked to hear Ghost Girl vanished, too, at the hands of Revolver. Go asked about the data Ghost Girl gave to Playmaker, who reported Revolver intended to destroy LINK VRAINS, using the tower. Blue Angel realized if the network would be destroyed, then all the people absorbed would be destroyed, too, hence why Playmaker exclaimed the importance of stopping the tower's completion, and Ai added it would prevent him from being erased. Go asked how to stop the tower, and was told Revolver had to be defeated. Ai warned the time limit was six hours before the tower was completed. Go and Blue Angel promised to go there, but Playmaker replied it was better if they stayed home, in safety. This actually motivated Go and Blue Angel to protect the children and the absorbed people, including Ghost Girl. Playmaker did not care, but asked of them to be careful. He reminded them one of them had to defeat Revolver, who, according to Ghost Girl wielded a powerful card. The trio promised to meet up against and went in different directions.Go continued his way towards the Tower of Hanoi.

Duel against Revolver

Go Onizuka was near the Tower of Hanoi, and remembered his promise to his manager. In front of the tower, Go was confronted by Revolver, who came to stop him, and the two noted each other's names. Go noted Revolver would use the tower to destroy the data. Revolver smiled, doubting Go would understand the Knights of Hanoi's plans. Go confirmed this, since he did not wish to listen gibberish from a "villain", and would never forgive Revolver these actions. Revolver wondered why Go came, since Blue Angel has been absorbed already. Warning the same would happen to Go, Revolver let him retreat. Go was surprised to hear Blue Angel had been defeated, as Revolver noted Spectre defeated her, but lost to Playmaker. Revolver pointed out his enemy was Playmaker rather than Go. Go

Go worried about Revolver's next move

swore to stop Revolver, just like Playmaker did to Spectre. Revolver noted Go did defeat one of his subordinates, and accepted the challenge. Go remembered Playmaker's warning about Revolver's powerful card, and hoped his refined deck should suffice. Go started the first round by Link Summoning "Gouki Thunder Ogre" and supplying his field with three "Gouki" monsters as backup. When Playmaker arrived, Go claimed he would be the one to defeat Revolver, who was unamused Go was distracted by a bystander. Revolver's swarming tactics let him Link Summon "Triple Burst Dragon" and draw two cards with the effect of "Arrow Charge". To belittle Go, Revolver used Go's "Gouki Thunder Ogre" for the additional Normal Summon of "Triggering Wurm", and use it to Link Summon "Topologic Bomber Dragon". "Triggering Wurm" was revived from the GY, and Revolver used his Dragon's effect to clear everyone's Main Monster Zones. To minimize the damage, Go tributed "Gouki Twistcobra" to increase the ATK of "Gouki Thunder Ogre" to 4500, and its effect increased its own ATK by 400. Revolver boosted his Dragon with "Link Protection" and attacked "Gouki Thunder Ogre", which triggered his Dragon's effect to destroy the ogre and inflict 2200 LP damage to Go. Go discarded "Gouki Octostretch" to halve the damage. Revolver complimented Go for this tactic, but wondered how long would that last. Thinking of the children, Go swore to restore LINK VRAINS. Go Link Summoned "Gouki Heel Ogre" next to the link of "Topologic Bomber Dragon". The latter's effect was triggered, but "Shadow Ogre" negated its effect and destroyed the Dragon. Go pointed out he also used Revolver's monster to his advantage, which made Revolver smirk. Revolver banished "Link Protection" and "Topologic Bomber Dragon" to prevent Go from attacking, unless he had four Link Monsters. Go made progress by reviving "Gouki Jet Ogre" and bringing out "Gouki The Great Ogre" Go swore to stop Revolver, who admitted his admiration for Go's passion. However, he reminded he was ruthless, and used a flashing "Mirror Force" to destroy all of Go's monsters, thus intentionally cancelling his efforts. Go realized that was the card Playmaker warned him about, making Revolver to laugh. Revolver offered Go to surrender. However, instead of his confidence crushed, Go became more determined to win, to use everything he had to stop Revolver. He played "Gouki Ringtrainer" to resurrect his "Gouki The Great Ogre" that Revolver had destroyed. Revolver promised to "honor" his opponent by obliterating him. He played "Boot Sector Launch" to summon "Shelrokket Dragon" and "Metalrokket Dragon", using them to Link Summon "Booster Dragon". Revolver targeted the effect of "Booster Dragon" to "Shellrokket Dragon", firing the missile to destroy Go's "Gouki" monsters. With no monsters left, Go took the attack of "Booster Dragon", lowering his LP to 1000. Go had "Gouki Moonsault" return his "Gouki Jet Ogre" to his Extra Deck, only to Link Summon it later on. He destroyed it to force Revolver's monsters in Attack Position, preparing them for battle. He revived "Gouki Jet Ogre" with "Gouki Grit", and used all of his monsters to Link Summon his new monster, "Gouki The Giant Ogre", which sparked Revolver's interest. Go's ogre, whose ATK became 5000, attacked "Booster Dragon", reduced Revolver's LP by 3100 points, as a "payback" for Revolver's actions. While Revolver Special Summoned "Triple Burst Dragon" from his GY, Go claimed he was always improving himself. Revolver summoned a "Magnarokket Dragon", and targeted it with the effect of "Booster Dragon". Revolver targeted "Gouki The Giant Ogre" as his target for destruction, who was unaffected by that effect, and the missile bounced off it. Revolver became displeased his effort were in vain, claiming Go was stubborn. Go reminded he always Dueled in public, and many children were looking up to him. However, he noted currently there was no fan cheering on for him, and now was fighting only for himself. He wanted to prove his strength, and dared Revolver to show his own, who creepily smiled. Revolver proceeded by summoning "Borrelsword Dragon", surprised Go actually

Go being turn into data

forced him to summon this monster that would mark his enemy's end. Revolver admitted he did not care for whom he fought, for he was just carrying on his goal. The dragon and the ogre clashed, with neither side being indestructible in battle. "Borrelsword Dragon" gained half the ATK that was cut off from "Gouki The Giant Ogre", increasing its ATK to 4500. Revolver switched the position of "Metalrokket Dragon" to destroy "Gouki The Giant Ogre". The attempt failed, for the latter's ATK

Go waking up from his coma

increased by 1000 when its ATK was reduced, thus becoming immune to "Metalrokket Dragon". This, however, allowed "Borrelsword Dragon" to attack once more, and slashed Go's "Gouki The Giant Ogre" and defeating Go himself. After Go faded away, Revolver reminded Playmaker they were the two last people in LINK VRAINS.

After Revolver was defeat, the Tower of Hanoi stops and everyone back to normal, including Go Onizuka. 

New job, Bounty hunter

Akira was unwillingly forced to find bounty hunters to track Playmaker down. He took in his office three people, among which one of was Go, in a new outfit. Go didn't expect Akira to be his boss, and neither did the latter to think Go would

Go Onizuka with the Bounty hunters team and Hayami

become a bounty hunter. Go simply stated his reasons were his own, and did not want to explain himself. Instead, he noted there was another bounty hunter. Hayami explained he was late, which upset Go a bit. Akira assured him that dangerous, person was merciless, yet was professional in his activities. Before Go left, Akira asked him why did he join the bounty hunters squad, and turning away from his fame as a Charisma Duelist. Gore replied the job was more fitting for him to defeat Playmaker and reclaim his pride. Akira understood, and told Playmaker about the secret of his power, for he a victim of the Lost Incident. He informed Playmaker's purpose behind dueling was to live, and the secret was determination and persistence. Go was surprised to see the guy wrapped-up, as Blood Shepherd didn't want to show his face to those that did reveal in LINK VRAINS. Go ignored that, claiming he would be the one to defeat Playmaker, since the latter was always one step ahead of him. Blood Shepherd ignored Go, but reminded not to be ordered around, since he did his things at his

Go Onizuka arguing with Blood Shepherd

own pace. Akira showed a footage of Bohman, the orange figure, since Blood Shepherd believed it would help them track Playmaker down. Go was alarmed at the figure, while Blood Shepherd noticed the figure did not log out yet. Regardless, Akira exclaimed the figure went beyond the restricted area of LINK VRAINS. 

Meeting Playmaker and Soulburner

Go and his two allies Kenmochi and Yoroizaka went to pursue after Playmaker and Soulburner. Ai recognized Go, who was working for SOL Technologies. Go announced his pleasure that Playmaker returned to LINK VRAINS, and had his fellow bounty hunters surround him to prevent his escape. Go wanted to duel Playmaker, who didn't have the time for that. Instead, he wanted to evade the pursuit. Gore collided with Playmaker's D-Board, ordering not to let them get away. Even with SOL Technologies trap activated, Playmaker wanted to continue. He and Soulburner evaded the trap, which two of the bounty hunters were caught in. Per Soulburner's request, Playmaker let him face Go. Go refused to deal with Soulburner, claiming he had "no time to be playing with him". Soulburner showed his Ignis, Flame, which made Go realize Soulburner was one of the victims of the Lost Incident. Soulburner confirmed this, and still challenged his senior. Go brushed Soulburner off for being called a senior, but accepted his challenge, since his job was to obtain the Ignis. Soulburner cheered as Flame introduced himself, but Go bluntly replied he would show no mercy and would make Soulburner regret his decision.

Duel against Soulburner

Soulburner was excited meeting Go Onizuka in live. He challenge him for a duel. Go seemed not to be interested in dueling Soulburner, but after Soulburner showed him Flame, Go accepted to duel Soulburner. As the duel begins, Go activated his new skill Dinowrestle Revolution, only to activate field spell, ''World Dino Wrestling''. Go was using completely new deck. Then, Go summoned ''Dinowrestler capoeiraptor''. Soulburner seems to admire Go Onuzuka a lot, even calling him senpai. As the duel continues, Soulburner link summoned his ace monster, Salamangreat Heatlio. But, only to fall in Go's trap, when he couldn't activate his trap card. Soulburner loses half of his life points. Go started to talk about how Playmaker was always on his way and he only thinks to win against him and be no.1. That thing pissed off Soulburner, calling Go SOL Technologies pet and dog. Soulburner told Go Onizuka how he admired him in the past that they defeat The Knights of Hanoi who kidnapped him and Soulburner was finally happy that he found out the reason why he was kidnapped. Soulburner said that Go Onizuka gave him courage, because he's a hero. Soulburner was disappointed of the current Go asking him where the real hero Go left. Go only end his turn without giving him an answer. Soulburner retrieved "Salamangreat Heatlio" with "Link Fire's Return", and inflicted moderate damage to Go. Suddenly, Soulburner was nearly attacked and accused Go of attacking him during the Duel. Go denied being involved in the attack, as Hayami of SOL Technologies was trying to attack Soulburner to prevent Akira's demotion. She launched another attack, but Go took the hit protecting Soulburner, much to Akira and Soulburner's surprise. Go and Soulburner continued the Duel, as the latter and Flame were glad Go wouldn't resort to such low attempts to capture them. Using "Salamangreat Sanctuary", Soulburner made another Reincarnation Link Summon of "Salamangreat Heatlio", which lowered the ATK of Go's "Dinowrestler King T Wrextle" to 800. To lower the damage he'd take, Go's Link Monster forced Soulburner's "Salamangreat Jack Jaguar" to attack it, which prevented "Salamangreat Heatlio" from attacking. By discarding "Dinowrestler Martial Ankylo", Go protected his Link Monster and took 1000 LP damage. Soulburner noted Go's monsters were tough, as Flame noticed he mastered his Deck. Go intended to win, rather than having an entertaining match when two sides' ace monsters would clash. Go's "Dinowrestler King T Wrextle" attacked "Salamangreat Jack Jaguar"; to prevent defeat, Soulburner used "Salamangreat Sanctuary" to reduce the ATK of "Salamangreat Heatlio" and gain LP, thus avoiding the defeat with 1100 LP left. To protect his monster from "Salamangreat Heatleo", Go summoned "Dinowrestler Rambrachio". Soulburner noted Go put a lot of effort into Dueling, but reminded Soulburner also had a reason for winning. Soulburner claimed he came to fight, being inspired by the heroes that fought against the Knights of Hanoi, to free him from his depression. Flame supported Soulburner, who activated Burning Draw skill to draw a card. Much like Playmaker, Soulburner played "Rise of the Salamangreat" Ritual Spell Card, returning "Salamangreat" monsters from his GY to Ritual Summon "Salamangreat Emerald Eagle". Go reminded his monster still had more ATK. Soulburner tribute "Salamangreat Heatlio" and had his eagle attack, whose effect destroyed Go's monster and inflicted damage to its ATK, making his LP drop to zero.

Go Onizuka angry

Go was defeated, but Soulburner offered him his hand to get up. Go refused and walked away. Soulburner pointed out Go was, to him, one of LINK VRAINS' heroes, but swore in order to regain his old self back, had to continue winning. Go stopped Soulburner, pointing out everyone could lose a Duel, but the important thing was whether dwell on the defeat or continue fighting. He claimed the true self was revealed once someone loses, and logged out, but Flame commented Go was just a sore loser to say that.

Akira's mission

Akira informed Go and Blood Shepherd of the gate in the restricted area, through which Playmaker and Soulburner had gone to. Go questioned why Akira didn't inform them of this earlier, but was reminded they were only hired to capture Playmaker and his Ignis. Akira noted unless the gate was reopened, Playmaker had no reason to return to LINK VRAINS, while his team were investigating the chances of reopening the gate. Later, when Go was scouting the area, he was ordered by Akira not to pursue Playmaker, since Akira had to show him something. Akira revealed that he gave Go Onizuka secret mission.

Go Onizuka became AI/Human hybrid

Go Onizuka was informed of the AI chip that could be installed into his brain, to stimulate his thoughts to make better decisions during the duel. Akira confirmed that the chip was still in its experimental phase, and feared once Go had it on, he would not be himself anymore. However, he still offered Go an option to refuse having the AI integrated into his

ronger, accepted in partaking in the experiment. After having the chip installed, Go Onizuka had a virtual duel, but lost. Akira was concerned about Go, who saw some distortions in his visions, and blacked out. When he woke up, Akira complemented him, but reminded he was taking too much damage. Go did not listen to Akira's warnings, and continued the experiment. Eventually, he started winning duels and broke many records. Despite taking a lot of damage to his body, Go claimed he "seized it". Akira wanted to stop the project, but the Queen, in person, arrived to have the experiment continued, for the company would prosper for these AI chips. Akira feared Go would perish if the experiment continued, but Go desired to continue, for the AI in his brain showed him remarkable things that only he could comprehend, and it showed him a path to victory.

Duel against Earth


Go Onizuka doing virtual experiments

Onizuka, wearing a hood, went under some virtual experiments, where he fought a virtual Playmaker. The research team was pleased, as Go managed to defeat Playmaker in that state. Later, Go was sent to pursue Earth and Aqua, the two Ignis. To protect Aqua, Earth pushed her away to fall to the depths, as he wanted to confront the bounty hunter. The bounty hunter tried to get Aqua, but since Earth was relentless, he decided to take him on. Go noted Playmaker and Ai arrived, too, and he unmasked himself. He swore to deal with Playmaker, after Earth has been defeated. As the Duel began, Go set a monster. Earth, however, used "G Golem Crystal Heart" to restore his "G Golem Stubborn Menhir", and had it revive "G Golem Rock Hammer" to Link Summon "G Golem Invalid Dolmen". The

monster attacked Go's set monster, "Dinowrestler Capaptera", and to avoid a huge LP damage, Go sent "Dinowrestler Martial Ampelo" to his GY to halve the damage. Go went on by summoning "Dinowrestler Pankratops" and

"Eskrimamenchi", and used the three monsters to Link Summon "Dinowrestler King T Wrestle". He went to defeat Earth by attacking the "Crystal Heart", but "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" protected that monster, and Earth took 600 LP damage. To reinforce his defenses, Earth's "Gravity Vision" summoned a token, which gained 2400 DEF. Go complimented Earth, but used "Brain Hack". He wailed in pain, and his eyes glow briefly. He revived "Dinowrestler Capaptera" and played "Tyrant Dino Fusion". Using the two monsters, he Fusion Summoned "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle". Go promised to show humanity's progress, as this new monster was what he was waiting for. Playmaker questioned the Go Onizuka's actions. The latter explained that he had an AI installed into his body; with the technology integrated into his brain, Go could make perfect actions in the Duel. Ai commented he'd become "AI

Onizuka" if he were to be placed in the Go's brain. Playmaker was still hesitant to believe an AI and a human can work as one. To prove he was right, Go promised to win the Duel, but Ai still had confidence that Earth would win. Go's "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle" attacked Earth's "G Token". The attack crushed through the token and inflicted piercing damage to Earth. The Gore felt power surging through his body, declaring he reached a new level, and capturing the two Ignises would be easy. Seeing how dangerous his opponent is, for the sake of protecting Aqua, Earth resolved to fight the human. His "G Golem Crystal Heart" revived "Invalid Dolmen"; since

"Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle" could not be destroyed in battle, Earth summoned "G Golem Pebble Dog", and used it and "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" as Link Materials for "G Golem Dignified Trilithon", whose ATK was raised to 4400. Sending a "Pebble Dog", Earth negated Go Onizuka's monster's effects and lowered its ATK to 3300. Due to "Crystal Heart", "G Golem Dignified Trilithon" attacked twice - it destroyed Go's "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle" and lowered his LP to 100. To finish the Go off, Earth activated "Rock You" Skill: Go Onizuka was inflicted 800 LP damage, 100 for each level of the monster that was destroyed in battle. Go Onizuka's veins popped out, as the Brain Hack grew to another level. His "Anti-Skill" countered Earth's Skill, and drew two cards. Despite failing to achieve victory, Earth stated he would protect "Crystal Heart", and Go had no monsters left. Go commented that Earth's battle style resembled his past-self. To show his new power, Go Onizuka summoned "Dinowrestler Coelasilat" and "Eskrimamenchi", and tuned the former with the latter to summon the Synchro Monster "Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate". "Spacetime Transcendence" allowed Go Onizuka to revive "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle", though it could not attack. Earth questioned this move, though Go had his Synchro Monster destroy "Crystal Heart". Earth's "G Golem Dignified Trilithon" negated the effect of "Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate" and destroyed that monster, but that monster destroyed the Go's Fusion Monster instead. Upon the destruction of "Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrestle", all of Earth's Attack Position monsters were destroyed. To protect the "Crystal Heart", Earth tributed "G Golem Dignified Trilithon" for "Gravity Protection", and the crystal heart's ATK increased to 1600. Go Onizuka commented that Earth could not see the world in which Go would win - he was a human/AI hybrid. His "Dino Roar" destroyed Earth's "Gravity Protection", thus causing the "Crystal Heart" to have its ATK dropped to zero. Declaring "Giga Savate Strike", the Gore's Synchro Monster destroyed Earth's crystal heart.

Earth screamed as the crystal heart was destroyed, and he lost the Duel and was absorbed into Go's Duel Disk. Playmaker demanded Go Onizuka to free Earth, as

the Ignis was not the enemy. Go Onizuka didn't care about that, and made Playmaker as his next enemy he wanted to crush. Playmaker tried to remind him that they were allies, but Go Onizuka did not listen. Blue Girl tried to face Go Onizuka instead, who was forced to log out, per the Queen's orders.

Go Onizuka was present when Earth was dissolved into data.
