"Swing into Action: Part 2" known as "The Strongest Evolution of Dueling!! Its Name Is Action Duel" is the second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It first aired in Japan on April 13, 2014, and in Canada on July 31, 2015.

Yuya's challenged the reigning Champion "the Sledgehammer" to a Duel. But when he's driven into a corner with no way out, Yuya performs the never-before seen "Pendulum Summon"... Yuya's battle with the Sledgehammer gives birth to "Pendulum Summoning"! This drives the Stadium audience wild. After the match, the "You Show Duel School" is hit by a flood of applicants. Yuya Duels Zuzu in a test match to test his newfound Pendulum Summon, expecting a flood of cheers, but...!?

Featured Duels

Yuya Sakaki vs. The Sledgehammer

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Yuya has 400 LP remaining, no cards in his hand, and controls "Performapal Whip Snake" (1700/900), "Performapal Sword Fish" (600/600) and "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (2500/2000) all in Attack Position, "Timegazer Magician" (Scale 8) and "Stargazer Magician" (Scale 1) in his Pendulum Zones, and no Set cards.
The Sledgehammer has 4000 LP remaining, no cards in his hand, and controls "Battleguard King" (5000/1100) in Attack Position and a Set card.

Turn 5: Yuya
Yuya activates the effect of "Performapal Whip Snake", switching the ATK and DEF of "Battleguard King" until the End Phase ("Battleguard King": 5000 → 1100/1100 → 5000). He then activates the effect of "Performapal Sword Fish", letting him target and reduce the ATK of a monster his opponent controls by 600 ("Battleguard King" 1100 → 500/5000). "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" attacks "Battleguard King", but the Sledgehammer activates his face-down "Battleguard Howling" as a "Battleguard" monster he controls is being attacked. This would let him target and return the attacking monster to the hand and inflict damage to his opponent equal to that monster's ATK. Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Timegazer Magician" as a Trap Card that targets exactly 1 Pendulum Monster he controls was activated. This negates the activation and re-Sets the card. The Sledgehammer finds and activates the Action Card "Evasion", which would negate the attack. Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Stargazer Magician" as a Spell Card that targets exactly 1 Pendulum Monster he controls was activated. This negates the effect and Sets the card, while preventing its activation for the remainder of this turn. The attack continues and Yuya activates the effect of "Pendulum Dragon", doubling the battle damage as it is battling a Level 5 or higher monster. "Battleguard King" is destroyed (The Sledgehammer: 4000 → 0 LP).

Yuya Sakaki vs. Zuzu Boyle

Yuya VS Yuzu ARCV-02

Yuya vs. Zuzu

At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Plain Plain" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.

Turn 1: Yuya
Yuya Normal Summons "Performapal Hip Hippo" (800/800).

Turn 2: Zuzu
Zuzu Normal Summons "Aria the Melodious Diva" (1600/1200). "Aria" attacks "Hip Hippo", but Yuya finds and activates the Action Card "Evasion", which negates the attack. As "Aria" battled without inflicting battle damage, Zuzu activates the effect of "Aria", inflicting 800 damage to Yuya (Yuya: 4000 → 3200 LP).

Turn 3: Yuya
Yuya draws "Timegazer Magician". His hand contains "Timegazer Magician", "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon", "Performapal Sword Fish", "Performapal Whip Snake" and "Wonder Balloons". Yuya activates Scale 4 "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" and Scale 8 "Timegazer Magician" in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya attempts to Pendulum Summon "Performapal Whip Snake" and "Performapal Sword Fish" from his hand, but since neither of their Levels are between the two Pendulum Scales (4 and 2 respectively), he cannot Pendulum Summon them and his Duel Disk gives an error. However, Yuya does not realize this requirement, and instead believes that he is unable to Pendulum Summon due to not being "in a pinch" as he was previously.

Turn 4: Zuzu
Zuzu draws. As she controls a "Melodious" monster, she Special Summons "Sonata the Melodious Diva" (1200/1000) from her hand in Attack Position via its own effect. She Tributes "Aria" and "Sonata" to Tribute Summon "Mozarta the Melodious Maestra" in Attack Position (2600/2000). Zuzu activates the effect of "Mozarta", letting her Special Summon a Level 4 or lower "Melodious" monster from her hand. She Special Summons another copy of "Aria" in Attack Position. "Aria" attacks and destroys "Hip Hippo" (Yuya: 3200 → 2400 LP). "Mozarta" attacks directly. Yuya, still under his previous belief and noting that he is now in a pinch, attempts to Pendulum Summon "Whip Snake" and "Sword Fish" again, but it fails a second time as he cannot Pendulum Summon during his opponent's turn in addition to the previous criteria. The attack continues (Yuya: 2400 → 0 LP).
