"Earth Ignis "Earth"" is the sixty-sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It aired in Japan on August 29, 2018.
Ai browses through the Internet, and discovers some mysterious messages relating to the Ignises. In order to confirm whether they are true or not, Playmaker and Ai head into LINK VRAINS. They then run into the Earth Ignis.
Turn 2: Earth Earth activates the Spell Card "Cost Down", discarding a card to reduce the Levels of all monsters in his hand by 2, even after they are Summoned. He discards "G Golem Rock Hammer". Earth Normal Summons the now Level 4 "G Golem Rock Hammer" (1800/2400). Earth activates the effect of "Rock Hammer", tributing it to Special Summon three "G Golem Tokens" (0/0) in Defense Position. Earth uses the three "G Golem Tokens" to Link Summon "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" (2800/LINK-3/←↑→) to the Extra Monster Zone. "Invalid Dolmen" attacks and destroys "Poisoning Blocker", with the effect of "Invalid Dolmen" inflicting piercing damage (Playmaker: 4000 → 3400 LP).
Turn 3: Playmaker
Playmaker draws and subsequently Normal Summons "Bitron" (200/2000). Playmaker uses "Bitron" to Link Summon "Zombie Prosaber" (1600/LINK-1/↑) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow "Invalid Dolmen" points to. "Zombie Prosaber" attacks "Invalid Dolmen". During damage calculation, as a Link Monster that was Link Summoned this turn battles a monster, Playmaker activates his face-down Trap Card "Link Rush", destroying the monster that is battling that Link Monster. "Invalid Dolmen" is destroyed. As a monster Earth controlled that "Zombie Prosaber" pointed to was destroyed by battle or card effect, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning that monster, but as "Invalid Dolmen" was destroyed, Earth activates its effect, negating the effects of all face-up cards Playmaker controls. The effect of "Zombie Prosaber" does not resolve.
Turn 4: Earth
Earth draws and subsequently activates the Spell Card "Gravity Balance", Special Summoning two EARTH monsters from his GY of the same name in Defense Position with their effects negated and ATK and DEF reduced to 0. He Special Summons two copies of "Rock Hammer" (both "Rock Hammer": 1800/2400 → 0/0). Earth uses both copies of "Rock Hammer" to Link Summon "G Golem Crystal Heart" (0/LINK-2/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone.
