Turn 12:

The Traitor of Academia


[Battle. The Water God of Heaven's Judgment, Miseria will attack Idaten the Conqueror Victory Star!] Ryu announced as he threw his hand forward. All the orbs attached to Miseria's body started glowing as the water flowing from its robe started to gather into its hands. [Its effect activates: when Miseria attacks an opponent's monster, the ATK of our enemy becomes zero; Heaven's Order!]

Kachidoki gasped as Idaten's eyes lost their glow (ATK 3000 = 0). [I activate my Trap Card - !]

[It's useless!] Ryu cut off his opponent. [The moment Heaven's Order is activated, the opponent can no longer activate any card effects until the end of Damage Calculation!]

[What!?] Kachidoki cried out shocked as Miseria released the water from its hands which struck Idaten with a great force, making the Martial Arts Duelist cry in pain as he was throw off his feet and landed on his back (LP 2800 - 4000 = 0).

Winner: Faji Ryu!

The Action Field vanished as the Duel ended. The whole Stadium was left speechless at Ryu's fierce attack, even Nico had to recompose himself before speaking up. [T-The w-winner is Faji-senshiu!]

Reiji narrowed his eyes as he stared at the monitor. "So my theory was correct: even Faji Ryu can go into this berserk-state."

Shun turned around as he planned on leaving the Control Room.

"Where are you going?" the businessman asked as he didn't even turn to look at Shun.

"To meet him!" was the answer he got. "That Faji Ryu has the same face as Ryx, he can also go on a rampage like Ryx, and he can Fusion Summon, something you didn't know. I'll go and get my answers from him personally!"

"Not now," Reiji said calmly as he turned to glare at Shun. "No matter what the reason, I'll have you refrain from actions that would impede on the progression of the tournament. Do not forget why I am holding this tournament and what I'll be using it for."

Shun scoffed as he left the Control Room.

"Just in case, I will put Kurosaki under surveillance," Nakajima told.

[Pardon the abruptness, but we have a change in schedule!] the voice of Nico stated on the room's screen. [Regarding the upcoming third match: due to absence of LDS' Shijima Hokuto, Kirigakure Cooking School's Michio Mokota wins by default!]

"Absence?" echoed Reiji confused.

"President," a worker called out. "About 3 hours ago, we detected a powerful summoning energy within Maiami City. The summoning method was Fusion. We've found the cameras that detected the energy as well. Please look at this."

The footage which appeared on the screen showed Hokuto being cornered against a wall by a cloaked person. Both Duelists' Duel Disk was active.

"The LDS' Xyz Course's Shijima Hokuto!" Nakajima realized.

The cloaked person then raises their Duel Disk to chest level as a blinding light emitted from it. As the light vanished, Hokuto was gone and the mysterious attacker left the scene.

"Rewind it."

Upon Reiji's words, the video rewound to the figure leaving. "Zoom on the face of the attacker."

As the screen zoomed on the face, it revealed a boy with a blue and orange eye smirking.

"That's...!" Nakajima gasped as he took a step back.

"It seems he became a potential threat to our plans," Reiji sighed. "The fourth person with the same face as Faji... I'll have to stop him..."


The next day...

The door to the back area of the Main Stadium opened as Sakuragi Yuu entered. He looked at his surroundings and noticed two cloaked figures walking in his direction. "Are you the one who called me here?" Yuu asked the person who stayed silent.

"The one to call you here was me," a new voice told as Akaba Reiji walked out from behind a pillar.

"President?" Yuu gasped surprised.

"I apologize, but you should leave now," the gray-haired man told as he stepped in front of Yuu. "Your Duel today was splendid. I expect more from you in the future."

"Th-Thank you," the other said before quickly taking his leave.

"And you are?" the cloaked person asked sounding almost bored.

"There is a chance you already know me," Reiji told as he adjusted his glasses. "I'm Akaba Reiji."

"Hoh! Akaba Leo's son?" the person chuckled with a mad grin. "How interesting! The Professor's son in flesh and blood!" he grabbed his cloak and threw it off himself, revealing himself. "What do I owe the pleasure?"

"You've been attacking numerous of Maiami City's Duelists and made them disappear one-by-one," Reiji explained with a calm face. "You're starting to become a threat to my City."

"Well I must apologize then, should I?" Rys taunted as he activated his Shield-shaped Duel Disk. "After all, you're Akaba Leo's son right?"

"It's really interesting how you're different from Faji Ryu, even if you two have the same face," Reiji mused, catching Rys's attention. "I've just remembered: I don't know your name. May I have it?"

"Rys. Yofune Rys," the male told as he narrowed his eyes. "So you also know this Faji Ryu..."

"Of course I know him," Reiji said with a faint smile. "He's one of my subordinates after all."

"A subordinate?" Rys parroted. "I see... so all I have to do is beat the crap out of you and he'll come saving you right away! This is getting better by the second."

Reiji narrowed his eyes as he armed his Duel Disk. "DUEL!" the two shouted.

Reiji - LP 4000

VS

Rys - LP 4000

"Since you're the Professor's son, I'll let you take the first turn," Rys told with a smile.

"No need to be so formal," Reiji mused as he took hold of a card in his hand, which he then swiped into his Duel Disk. "Because that will be your downfall. I activate a Continous Spell: Dark Contract with the Infinity Pendulum. This card can only be activated while I have no cards on my field, and once per turn, if I have no cards in both my Pendulum Zones, I can add two D/D Pendulum Monsters from my deck to my hand."

The Spell Card formed beside Reiji: it showed a pendulum pendant, similar to Yuya's but red instead of blue and two demonic wings. The pendant was swinging back and forth above a sheet of old paper on which an unknown language was written. As the Spell Card started glowing, two cards ejected from Reiji's deck and he placed them in his hand.

"Next I activate the Spell Card, Zero Contract. This spell, at the cost of destroying my other Dark Contract card, allows me to add a Zero named card from my deck to my hand. I choose to destroy Dark Contract with the Infinity Pendulum to add D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell to my hand."

The Spell Card showed a sheet of paper with an unknown language written on it being torn in half as a '0' was glowing in the background. The Continous Spell Card vanished from Reiji's field as a card ejected from his deck which he added to his hand.

"What a beginning!" Rys clapped his hand as if praising his opponent. "You're one interesting of an opponent, Akabe Reiji!"

"I'll take that as a compliment and continue with my turn," the businessman told as he took hold of two cards from his hand. He flipped them over, revealing two Pendulum Cards to his opponent. "With the scale 1 D/D Count Surveyor and the scale 12 D/D Post Surveyor, I set the Pendulum Scales!"

As Reiji swiped the two cards on either side of his energy blade, the word Pendulum flashed on his blade. Two pillars of blue lights formed on his field as two monsters hovered in them: D/D Count Surveyor had a thin blood-colored body with black and white armor and a helmet which had several zoom lens (SC: 1).

D/D Post Surveyor was a thin gray skinned demon, prisoned inside a transparent cube made of glass. The monster was covered in white armor and had a helmet with a single red eye glowing in its center (SC: 12).

"Grand power that shakes my very soul, arise within me and become a new light that rends the darkness. PENDULUM SUMMON! Come before me, my monster!"

As Reiji finished his chant, a giant portal opened between his Pendulum Scales as a ray of purple light shot out of it. The monster which appeared had a very similar appearance to D/D Count Surveyor, but this demon had a red robe around its waist from which a long white tail extended. Its head was an optical telescope with two golden gears on either side of the helmet. "Gaze intently upon the world, my servant! D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell!" (LV 8: ATK 2800).

"So this is the infamous Pendulum Summon the whole city talks about," Rys chuckled as he smirked wider. "Quite intriguing, but boring at the same time. Don't you think this Summoning Method is a little overpowered?"

"In war, it doesn't matter what weapon you use as long as you achieve victory. I set two cards face-down and end my turn."

Dual colored eyes narrowed. "Then I'm up! Draw!"

Rys looked to his Duel Disk as he pressed his finger on the screen, making the cards on Reiji's field appear on it. "I see... so your monster can negate all battle damage inflicted on you..." he nodded as he read the card's text. "I'll just have to avoid battling then."

"For starters, I activate the Spell Card, Polymerization from my hand! I use Depth Wings Barbarity and Depth Wings Merciless in my hand as Fusion Materials!"

Said monsters formed beside Rys: Depth Wings Barbarity was a dragon with black scales and red highlights with two galaxy-patterned wings. Depth Wings Merciless was a dragon with black scales and green highlights with two galaxy-patterned wings.

The the two dragons swirled into a red and green Fusion Portal as Rys chanted. "Dragon with a barbaric soul. Dragon with a merciless soul. Become the new emperor of the unknown future! FUSION SUMMON! Come before me: Sacred Fallen Pride - Depth Wings Assassin!"

The Fusion Monster which emerged from the portal was a dragon had dark-purple scales and two giant galaxy-patterned wings with purple flashing starts. The dragon roared as it held a sniper between its claws.

"As I expected..." Reiji muttered as he narrowed his eyes. "He fusion summoned on his first turn."

"I activate the effect of Barbarity and Merciless which were used as Fusion Materials, making Depth Wings Assassin gain two new effects!" Rys explained as he threw his arm forward. "Next I activate my dragon's own effect, targeting your Zero Maxwell with it!"

The dragon aimed its sniper at the said monster as it loaded its ammo. "Once per turn during my Main Phase 1, I can destroy a targeted monster! Prideless Aiming Shoot!"

"I activate my face-down, Dimension Drape," Reiji called out as one of his face-downs flipped up, revealing a Normal Trap Card. "This turn, D/D/D monsters I control can't be destroyed by battle or card effects!"

A transparent barrier formed around Zero Maxwell as it shielded it from a bullet fired by the enemy dragon.

"Tch... your luck. Attacking would be useless, so I set a card face-down and call it a turn."

"It's my turn then. I draw!" Reiji announced. "Using the currently set Pendulum Scales, I'll Pendulum Summon once again!"

Another portal opened above Reiji as a purple ray shot out of it. The monster which descended was an angel clad in silver armor, a snow white feathered wing and a mechanical one. The monster wore a helmet which had two demon-wings sprouting from either side. "The Level 4: D/D Proud Angel!"

"When this angel is the only monster Pendulum Summoned to my field, I add one D/D/D monster from my deck to my hand; I choose to add D/D/D Zero Laplace to my hand. D/D Proud Angel can be treated as two sacrifices when summoning a D/D/D monster, so I release my angel to Advance Summon!"

As D/D Proud Angel burst into light particles, a dark mist enveloped Reiji's field. Four long bone arms emerged from the mist as the monster revealed itself: it had a body made of bones and several tentacles thrashing behind it. The monster held an orb between two of its arms (LV 10: ATK ?).

"A paradigm lurks in the darkness of time!" Reiji chanted. "And an inexorable power awakens the demon of causality! Be born! D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace"

"ATK unknown?" Rys muttered confused. "It must have a nasty effect..."

"Your observation is correct," Reiji mused with a faint smile. "Allow me to show the power which overcomes destiny itself! Battle! D/D/D Zero Laplace attack his dragon! With its effect, Zero Laplace's ATK becomes double the opponent's! Go! The End of Destiny!"

"I activate a Trap, Fusion Protection!" Rys cried out. "With this, my dragon won't be destroyed by battle this turn, also, all damage I take from battles involving it is halved!"

A transparent barrier formed around Depth Wings Assassin as Zero Laplace released a beam of purple light from its orb which struck the barrier (LP 4000 → 3250)

"Next D/D/D Zero Maxwell attacks! At the same moment, I activate the Pendulum Effect of D/D Post Surveyor! When a monster declares an attack, the attack target's Battle Position will be changed!"

Depth Wings Assassin (DEF 2800) kneeled down as Zero Maxwell zoomed on its target. "The effect of Zero Maxwell also activate!" Reiji shouted as he pointed forward. "When this card attacks an opponent's Defense Position monster, that monster's DEF becomes zero!"

"But since my monster is in Defense Position, I won't take any damage!" Rys reminded. "It seems you made a misplay, Akaba Reiji."

"I beg differ," the gray-haired man adjusted his glasses. "Zero Maxwell can deal piercing damage. Which means you'll still take the damage! Go! The End of Sight!"

Depth Wings Assassin (DEF 2800 → 0) roared in pain and Zero Maxwell released a beam of light from its lens which struck the barrier (LP 3250 → 1850)

"Since the Damage Step ended, my dragon's DEF returns to normal," Rys stated (DEF 0 → 2800). "It seems I survived this turn."

"Indeed you have," Reiji sighed. "I set a card end my turn."

"Then I draw!" Rys shouted as he began his turn. "I activate Fusion Recovery, returning Depth Wings Merciless and Polymerization to my hand! Next, I'll activate the latter once again, fusing my Depth Wings Assassin with Merciless in my hand!"

"Dragon with a prideless soul. Dragon with a merciless soul. Become the new emperor of the unknown future! FUSION SUMMON! Come before me: Depth Wings Prideless Dragon!"

The upgraded version of Depth Wings Assassin had much darker armor, purple glowing claws and talons and an upgraded version of its older sniper (LV 9: ATK 2000).

"I activate the effect of my dragon!" Rys declared with a grin. "Once per turn, during my Main Phase 1, I can target and destroy a face-up monster my opponent controls and deal half its ATK as damage to my opponent! I choose your Zero Maxwell! Prideless Killing Shoot!"

"How predictable," Reiji told, seeming bored. "I activate a Trap, Zero Protection. When an effect which destroys cards is activated, that effect is negated. Using a strategy twice is futile."

"Are you sure?" Rys enquired. "Because this way it was guaranteed you'll protect your monster, thus falling into my trap! Battle! Depth Wings Prideless Dragon attack his Zero Laplace! And since my dragon is battling a monster the turn its first effect was activated, I can now double its ATK and negate the effect of your Zero Laplace!" (ATK 2000 → 4000).

"Now I see, this way, my Zero Laplace's effect won't activate, thus making me take 4000 damage and lose the Duel," Reiji realized not losing his composure. "However you forgot about the Pendulum Effect of D/D Post Surveyor. With it, I'll change Zero Laplace to Defense Position!"

"I won't let you escape!" Rys announced. "Since Merciless was used as Fusion Material, that monster gains a new effect: when my Depth Wings Prideless Dragon attacks a Defense Position monster, I can deal piercing damage to my opponent!"

The Fusion dragon aimed its sniper at Zero Laplace as a giant bullet of light shot out of it. The incoming attack could be seen on Reiji's glasses, who didn't move an inch as the bullet hit his monster, thus making it explode and indulged the entire back area in smoke.

"With this... I defeated the Professor's son," Rys thought content.

"Naive."

Rys gasped as the smoke cleared, revealing Reiji unharmed (LP 4000). "What!? Impossible! You should have taken 4000 damage!"

"I activated my last face-down," he explained. "00 Barrier is a Trap which makes any battle or effect damage become zero, also, it lets me add a Zero card from my deck to my hand. I choose to add my most powerful D/D/D monster to my hand."

Rys gritted his teeth in frustration. "I... set a card... and end my turn."

"Then I believe it's my turn," Reiji told calmly as he drew his card. "With the currently set Pendulum Scale, I Pendulum Summon! Revive from the Extra Deck! D/D/D Zero Laplace!"

The previously destroyed monster reappeared on Reiji's field as it stood beside Zero Maxwell. "Now, allow me to show you... the complete ruler of all dimensions! Since I've just Pendulum Summoned a D/D/D Pendulum Monsters and the combined values of my Pendulum Scales exceed 12, I can call forth this!"

"The destroyer of dimensions," Reiji chanted as two giant portals opened on either side of Reiji's field. "The despair which suffocates all hope," two enormous clawed arms emerged from the portals as several chained balls chimed around the field. "Transcend upon this battlefield and call forth disaster!" the body of the newly summoned monster formed out of a black mist as it gave a loud inhuman battle cry (LV 12: ATK 3000).

"Transcendent Pendulum Summon! Be born! Level 12: D/D/D/D Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox!"

Rys felt his breath being robbed away as he stared at the colossal monster. "A Level 12 to boot... amazing... no wonder why he's Akaba Leo's son..."

Purple eyes narrowed as their owner stared at the newly summoned monster on their field. "This card... was the only gift my father ever gave me. I can't believe it's going to win me this Duel... and I don't want to admit how thankful I am for father, even if he's a monster himself. This card was the light which kept me moving forward, and now it's going to become the light which destroys his ambitions."

"I activate the effect of Zero Paradox!" Reiji declared. "When this card is special summoned, all other cards on the field are destroyed! Transcendence Submission!"

Two giant portals opened on either side of the field as all cards were sucked into it, leaving only Zero Paradox beside Reiji.

"Impossible..." muttered Rys as he took a step back. "He turned everything around with a single effect..."

"Battle! Zero Paradox, attack my opponent directly! The End of Dimensions!"

The monster obeyed its command as it concentrated a beam of light from its four arms which then exploded as it hit the ground in front of Rys, making him fly onto his back as he cried in pain (LP 1850 → 0).

Winner: Akaba Reiji!

Reiji slowly walked up to Rys, who was having some trouble standing back to his feet. "Now I'd like to know why you've been sent to this Dimension. What are Akaba Leo's plans?"

Much to his surprise, his beaten opponent started laughing as he managed to stand back up. "Abaka Reiji... you think you're so high and mighty, that you can stop the Professor's ambitions... but in the end, you're just a fool..."

"Is that so? Care to explain why?"

"Leo sent me to every Dimension before this one," Rys explained as he took some steps back. "My mission was simple: find and secure a target, bring it to the Fusion Dimension under any circumstances. My targets were teenage girls, all sharing the same face. My target in this Dimension... was Hiiragi Yuzu."

"What?" Reiji gasped, seeming shocked for the first time today. "Hiiragi Yuzu you say? Why?"

"Beats me!" Rys laughed to the others confusion. "I don't know the details, just what I have to do. However, much to the old man's annoyance, all these girls were nowhere to be found, even if three out of the four, Serena, Rin, Ruri were already under his clunches. One day, they all disappeared, the exact day I was found unconscious in Academia with no memory of my past."

"It seems even Hiiragi Yuzu is gone from this Dimension," Rys continued as his face suddenly turned serious. "But I won't go back to Academia! I'm bored of getting ordered around by your father! However, Leo won't be happy 'bout that! He will send numerous Duel Soldiers to this Dimension to capture both me and Hiiragi Yuzu, even if he doesn't know she's missing too!"

"Per what you just told me, I can deduce you know a lot of valuable information about Academia and its Duel Soldiers," Reiji spoke up as he narrowed his eyes. "Thus, I'll have you come with me. You've already become a threat to my city, so I can't leave you roaming around."

"I wonder about that," Rys chuckled as he pressed the screen of his Duel Disk. On cue, an explosion occurred in the back area, enveloping the zone in flames and smoke. Rys took this chance to flee.

Reiji quickly evacuated the area, frustrated on not being able to get his remaining answers. All he did was get more questions.


Unknown Location...

"I have a lot of bad news, Professor," an aide told to a man. The man was sitting on a throne with an angered expression.

"What no?" the Professor hissed.

"Yofune Rys, who we've sent to the Standard Dimension hasn't made any reports nor returned to Academia," the aide explained. "We believe he betrayed us and is now freely roaming in that Dimension."

"That brat..." Leo muttered.

"Also," the aide continued. "From the memories, we've gathered from Shiunin Sora, we've discovered something quite strange. Please observe."

Three photos materialized in front of Leo, one being Faji Ryu, Sakushi Ryx, and Yofune Rys. The Professor gasped as he widens his eyes. "Impossible..."

"What do we, Professor?"

"We eliminate them!" Leo said as he stood up from his throne. "Send an Obelisk Force squad to invade the Standard Dimension: order them to card these three and search for the counterparts of Serena!"

"Sir... there's something else... I didn't tell you yet," the aide told, fear evident in his eyes. "In the memories of Shiunin Sora, we've also discovered... that Hiiragi Yuzu disappeared from the Standard Dimension."

"What!?"

Akaba Leo trembled back into his throne as he stared forward wide-eyed. Serena, Ruri, Rin, and now Hiiragi Yuzu too. How come they all disappeared? There has to be an explanation!

"Reiji..." the Professor muttered. "It was Reiji... yes that's it! Yofune Rys was just working for him undercover! Each time we sent him to a Dimension, he handed each girl to him! That must be it! Which means... all the girls are in the Standard Dimension!"

Leo jolted up as he narrowed his eyes. "My previous order remains: send a squad to that Dimension and tell them to capture the four girls no matter what! Also, send Shiunin Sora as well. We should reward him for the information he gave us."

"Yes, sir."


And with that, chapter 12 is finished.

In today's Duel, I made Reiji use his Manga Version Deck, with the super-long-name-not-three-but-four-Ds Zero Paradox! In future episodes, I'm not going to make him use this deck again, maybe only some cards. The extra 'D' in Zero Paradox's name I think stands for 'Destroyer' or 'Disaster' or something like that. I don't think the D/D Surveyor monsters will become a real thing, but I think Zero Paradox might.

As for Rys: all the monsters in his deck have an effect when used as Fusion Material, the effect to have that Fusion Monster gain a new effect. His deck focuses around Fusion Summoning. In this chapter, his Ace Monster didn't appear.

Turn 13: Battle Royale Begins

16 duelists now compete in a Battle Royal. This is a competition taking place in four battle zones, and Pendulum Cards are scattered around these Zones. But during this event, just as Reiji expected, the Fusion Dimension makes their move and several Duel Soldiers, the Obelisk Force, appear in the City and card everybody in their path. Sora also appears and heads straight for Shun in order to get his revenge. Thus, Maiami City goes into chaos!
