This is a Team Duel which uses the rules of the Team Duel Tournament; check the article for rules.

Attacks Takashi directly with "Warrior of Atlantis" (Takashi ???? → 0).

Tetsuo attacks Team Shark member directly with "Tin Archduke" (Team Shark member ???? → 0).

Duel 3: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Shark

Turn 1: Shark
Shark's opening hand contains "Panther Shark", "Eagle Shark", "Water Hazard", "Unshaven Angler" and "Big Whale". He draws "Shocktopus", then Sets 1 monster.

Turn 2: Yuma
Yuma's opening hand contains "Tasuke Knight", "Achacha Chanbara", "ZW - Ultimate Shield", "Gagaga Caesar" and "Gagaga Clerk". He draws "Kagetokage". Yuma Normal Summons "Tasuke Knight" (1700/100). As he Normal Summoned a Level 4 monster, he Special Summons "Kagetokage" (1100/1500) from his hand in Attack Position. He attacks and destroys Shark's Set "Shocktopus" (1600/800) with "Tasuke Knight". As "Shocktopus" was destroyed by battle, it equips to "Tasuke Knight", preventing it from switching its battle position. In addition, its ATK becomes 0. Yuma attacks Shark directly with "Kagetokage" (Shark 4000 → 2900). Yuma then overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. Since "Tasuke Knight" is no longer on the field, "Shocktopus" is sent to the Graveyard.

Turn 3: Shark
Shark activates "Water Hazard". Once per turn, he can Special Summon a Level 4 or lower WATER monster from his hand if he controls no monsters. He Special Summons "Unshaven Angler" (1500/1600) in Attack Position. Shark then Tributes it, treating it as 2 Tributes for the Tribute Summon of a WATER monster, to Tribute Summon "Big Whale" (1000/3000). He then activates its effect, Tributing it to Special Summon three Level 3 WATER monsters from his Deck. He Special Summons "Big Jaws" (1800/300), "Shark Stickers" (200/1000) and "Tripod Fish" (300/1300) in Attack Position. Shark then overlays his three Level 3 monsters to Xyz Summon "Tri-Edge Levia" (1800/1500) in Attack Position. Shark activates its effect, detaching an Xyz Material to negate the effect of "Utopia". In addition, the ATK of "Utopia" is decreased by 800 ("Utopia" 2500 → 1700). Shark attacks "Utopia" with "Tri-Edge Levia".

Duel continues in the next chapter.
