Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS episode 105: "Unlikely Alliance" (reformed)

Playmaker's faction is a group in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS that opposes Lightning's faction, working together to protect LINK VRAINS and humanity alongside their Ignis. As of Season 3, the group is reformed with new members to stop Ai who has declared war on SOL Technologies.


Playmaker wishes to get back Jin, Soulburner, and Flame to rebuild the Cyberse World, and Blue Maiden and Aqua to save Miyu Sugisaki. The supporters of this group are Cal Kolter, Ghost Gal, and Akira Zaizen.

Later on, Playmaker and his allies would join forces with the Knights of Hanoi, with Varis and Specter joining the main team and Dr. Genome, Faust, and Baira provide technical support from the real world.

Every member of this faction apart from Playmaker and Ai ended up being erased or absorbed by Lightning and his faction.

As of Season 3, the group is now reformed with new members such as Gore and The Shepherd to stop Ai who is attacking SOL Technologies. Unfortunately, Ghost Gal, The Shepherd, Specter, Akira Zaizen, and the three Knights of Hanoi members have been defeated and erased by Ai and Roboppy.

After Ai's defeat, the group reformed, and was restored back to normal. The members went their own separate ways, and experienced new lives for that is to come.
