“Fusion Summon, Elemental HERO Great Tornado!”
The warrior who controlled the storm appeared in the center of the field, bringing a howling tornado.
The dark storm visible to the naked eye shot straight into the sky, and the arena trembled under the gust of wind.
The slender hero floated in the middle of the storm, his dark cloak fluttering in the wind.
[Elemental HERO Great Tornado, ATK 2800]
This was the last new hero fusion monster that Yuei Vu has in his hand.
The fusion condition was 1 “Elemental HERO” monster 1 WIND monster, so he could use the Bladedge to fuse with the WIND attribute Avian.
“Attack power of 2800! It’s higher than Skull Archfiend of Lightning!” Kawasawa Gai looked in disbelief.
“And ‘Great Tornado’ also has special abilities.” Yuei Vu said, “If this card is Fusion Summoned: Halve the ATK and DEF of all face-up monsters the opponent currently controls!”
Kawasawa was even more astonished: “Such a powerful effect!”
In the eyes of duelists of this era, having the attack power of 2800 was already a powerful monster.
Not only that, but it also had the terrifying special ability of “halving the ATK and DEF of all the opponent’s monster”… Wasn’t it invincible!
The hero of the storm raised his palm, and the tornado swept forward as if it had consciousness.
The demon’s thunder was briefly dissipated by the gust of wind, and the bones of the demon were dragged into the middle of the storm.
The skeleton demon let out an unwilling roar and released lightning with all his strength to hit the gale that bound him, but it was useless.
Its physical strength was rapidly weakened, and the thunder and lightning momentum it released was not as good as before.
[Skull Archfiend of Lightning, ATK 2500 → ATK 1250]
Some duelists in the audience began to wonder: “Wait a minute, shouldn’t the president’s skeleton demon be able to roll the dice when he is targeted by effects, and decide whether the activation is valid or invalid according to the rolled number”
“That’s right! It makes sense, why didn’t the special ability of the skeleton demon be activated”
“Is it a system bug…”
More than one duelist had such a question, and many people were surprised.
President Kawasawa himself has a slightly stronger understanding of the duel rules.
He gritted his teeth and said, “I see.
The effect of Skull Archfiend of Lightning will only be activated when he is ‘selected as the target of the effect’, but the effect of Great Tornado is to ‘halving the ATK and DEF of all the opponent’s monster’.
There is no target selection, so the ability is not triggered”
Yuei Vu chuckled: “That’s right.”
To put it simply, the principle was this-
——My Great Tornado is not targeting anyone today, but all the monsters here, the attack power has to be halved for me!
In fact, for later players, this was a common-sense rule.
In Yu-Gi-Oh’s rule system, there were many card effects that needed to be activated by selecting specific objects, there were also many cards that could prevent becoming the target of effects.
However, in this age when duelists were still trying to adapt to the simple rules of “the advance summons requires tributes”, the rules for targeting were too advanced and complicated, and most people really didn’t understand it.
President Kawasawa Gai was one of the few duelists who could understand this rule.
But the more he could understand it, the more he admired the young man in front of him.
He actually even considered the weakness of Skull Archfiend of Lightning!
This boy… Whether it is the use of cards, the choice of tactics, or the understanding and awareness of the duel monster game, he is terrifyingly strong!
Although the duel was not over yet, Kawasawa Gai found that he had actually accepted his defeat in his heart.
Or rather, he was even vaguely beginning to look forward to the way he will usher in defeat in the future.
The corner of his mouth twitched and he hummed: “Fusion Summoning… It can indeed summon a powerful enough monster in an instant.
It is a powerful move that can instantly dominate the duel.
But this method is also accompanied by certain restrictions, you must have taken into account your words, right The fact that fusion monsters cannot attack during the turn they are summoned.
Indeed, every time I play a card in this era, this rule will be extremely painful, especially since my initial deck is still an Elemental HERO deck with fusion as the core…
But it doesn’t matter.
He played the last card that ended the duel: “Quick-Play Spell – De-Fusion!”
“Huh, it turns out that this trick is still hidden.” Kawasawa Gai hummed.
“I return Great Tornado to the Extra Deck, then I special summon all the Fusion Materials that were used for its Fusion Summon from my GY!” As he spoke, two cards popped out of Yuei Vu’s graveyard, “Come back, Elemental HERO Avian, Elemental HERO Bladedge!”
[Elemental HERO Avian, ATK 1000]
[Elemental HERO Bladedge, ATK 2600]
Everyone knew what would happen next.
“Bladedge, attack Skull Archfiend of Lightning!” Yuei Vu gave the final order.
The golden metal hero charged toward the demon.
The engine on his back spewed golden flames, and his body turned into a long golden afterimage, like a sharp knife popping out of its scabbard.
The Skull Archfiend of Lightning, whose attack power was halved to 1250, was completely powerless to stop the Bladedge’s attack.
The golden knife light slashed through the demon’s body from top to bottom.
The armor of the bones shattered with grief, and its body also shattered with an unwilling roar.
【Kawasawa Gai, LP 1000 → LP 0】
The audience fell into a strange silence once again.
Even though they more or less had foreseen the result that the president would lose… But seeing it with their own eyes was still a bit too shocking.
Because this was not just a simple loss of a duel, but the entire duel seemed to be firmly gabbed in the hands of Yuei Vu.
Even Kawasawa Gai’s summoning of his ace monster, the top rare card among Archfiends, “Skull Archfiend of Lightning”, seemed to be completely in vain.
The rhythm of the duel from beginning to end was in the hands of Yuei Vu.
He defused the opponent’s attack lightly, saw through the opponent’s tactics, and made a beautiful counterattack… It seemed that he was still at ease.
Where did such a powerful duelist come from Why never heard of it before
“It’s me who lost.” Kawasawa Gai stood up, “I lost completely, there is nothing to be dissatisfied with.”
“In this way, I can join you, right” Yuei Vu smiled.
“If you still have the will, of course, there is no problem.
It would be an honor for us Nightcrawler World to have such a powerful duelist as you.”
The strong are always respected.
Seeing Yuei Vu’s superb skills, Kawasawa Gai even felt that this overly handsome face became more pleasing to the eye.
“Thank you, President.” Yuei Vu nodded and turned to the onlookers beside the ring, “Then please give me more advice in the future.”
The whole house full of sturdy men gave out cheers of welcome.
