Featured Duel: Team ZEXAL vs. Team Fire Stars

Duel 1: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Shota Geki

Turn 1: Yuma
Yuma's starting hand contains "Dododo Bot", "Goblindbergh", "Blustering Winds", "Gagagadraw" and "Xyz Reborn". He draws "Amarylease". He Sets a monster.

Turn 2: Shota
Shota's starting hand contains "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Gorilla", "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Snake", "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Spirit", "Pyrotech Mech - Shiryu" and "Pyrorex the Elemental Lord". He draws "Fire Formation - Tensu". Shota Normal Summons "Gorilla" (1600/1000). He then activates "Tensu", which allows him to Normal Summon one more Level 4 or lower Beast-Warrior Type monster per turn in addition to his Normal Summon/Set. Shota Normal Summons "Snake" (1800/600) via its effect. The second effect of "Tensu" raises the ATKs of his Beast-Warrior-Type monsters by 100 ("Gorilla": 1600 → 1700) ("Snake": 1800 → 1900). Shota attacks Yuma's Set monster with "Gorilla"; it is "Amarylease", who is destroyed. The effect of "Gorilla" allows Shota to Set a "Fire Formation" Spell Card directly from his Deck, as it destroyed a monster by battle and sent it to the Graveyard. "Snake" attacks Yuma directly (Yuma 4000 → 2100). Shota Overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Tiger King" (2200/1800 →2300/1800) in Attack Position; its effect allows Shota to Set another "Fire Formation" Spell/Trap Card from his Deck. Shota activates his Set "Fire Formation - Tenki", adding "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Raven" from his Deck to his hand. "Tenki" also increases the ATK of all Beast-Warrior-Type monsters Shota controls by 100 ("Tiger King": 2300 → 2400).

Turn 3: Yuma
Yuma Normal Summons "Goblindbergh" (1400/0) and activates its effect, Special Summoning "Dododo Bot" (1800/1900) from his hand while changing itself to Defense Position. Yuma Overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Zubaba General" (2000/1000) in Attack Position.

Duel continues in the next chapter.
