VRAINS anime, for a Duel taking place in the Data Storm in LINK VRAINS.[1][2]

Speed Duel rules (anime)

Speed Duels feature a smaller playing field than Master Duels

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime, the Speed Duel is a common-used format.

Speed Duels were legendary Duels played in LINK VRAINS where players use D-Boards to ride the Data Storm. This kind of Duel had disappeared for many years when the Data Storm apparently ceased to exist, making Speed Duels be only known as rumors. However, when Yusaku Fujiki captured Ai, the latter released the Data Storm, thus reviving these Duels.[2]
