Featured Duel: Droite vs. Tron

This Duel takes place at a Duel Arena, the "Jungle Field". It is a treated as a face-up Field Spell Card. Its effect will inflict 1000 damage to a player who does not Summon a monster from their hand during their turn. The Duelists begin with the amount of Life Points they had at the end of the Duel Coaster. In this case, Droite has 8000, while Tron has 4000.

Turn 1: Droite
Droite activates "Phantasmal Dance of the Confusing Butterflies". Since there is a Field Spell Card on the field, she can Special Summon two Level 4 "Butterspy" monsters from her hand. She Special Summons "Morpho Butterspy" (1200/1600) and "Swallowtail Butterspy" (1800/1200). She overlays her two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Photon Papilloperative" (2100/1800) in Attack Position. She then activates "Assassin Gate", "Butterfly Charm" and "Death Butterfly Invitation", the third card by paying 2000 Life Points (Droite 8000 → 6000). Due to the effect of "Butterfly Charm", Tron must attack whenever able. Due to the effect of "Assassin Gate", any monster that attacks besides "Assassin" monsters are destroyed. Due to the effect of "Death Butterfly Invitation", players take 1500 damage each time a monster they control is sent to the Graveyard.

Turn 2: Tron
Tron Sets a monster and a card.

Turn 3: Droite
Droite pays 2000 Life Points to maintain "Death Butterfly Invitation" (Droite 6000 → 4000). She activates the effect of "Photon Papilloperative", detaching an Overlay Unit to switch Tron's face-down monster to face-up Attack Position and decrease its ATK by 600. Tron's monster is"Heraldry Beast Abercornway" (1800 → 1200/900). "Papilloperative" attacks and destroys "Abercornway" (Tron 4000 → 3100). "Death Butterfly Invitation" inflicts 1500 damage to Tron since a monster of his was sent to the Graveyard (Tron 3100 → 1600). Droite Sets a monster.

Turn 4: Tron
Tron Normal Summons "Heraldry Beast Bernard's Falcon" (1000/1600). Due to "Butterfly Charm", "Bernard's Falcon" is forced to attack "Papilloperative", and due to "Assassin Gate", "Bernard's Falcon" is immediately destroyed. "Death Butterfly Invitation" inflicts 1500 damage to Tron due to a monster of his being sent to the Graveyard (Tron 1600 → 100). Tron activates "High Medallion Arts" using the "Bernard's Falcon" and "Abercornway" in his Graveyard as Overlay Units to Xyz Summon "Number 8: Heraldry King Genome Heriter" (2400/1800) in Defense Position.

Turn 5: Droite
Droite pays 2000 Life Points to maintain "Death Butterfly Invitation (Droite 4000 → 2000). Droite activates the effect of "Photon Papilloperative", detaching an Overlay Unit to switch "Genome Heriter" to Attack Position and decrease its ATK by 600 (2400 → 1800). "Papilloperative" attacks "Genome Heriter", but Tron activates the latter card's effect, detaching an Overlay Unit to treat its name as "Photon Papilloperative" and have "Photon Papilloperative" be treated as having no name. Thus, "Assassin Gate" destroys "Papilloperative" as it is no longer an "Assassin" monster. "Death Butterfly Invitation" inflicts 1500 damage to Droite as a monster of hers was sent to the Graveyard (Droite 2000 → 500). Droite Normal Summons "Moonlit Papillon" (1200/1600) and Flip Summons "Ulysses Butterspy" (0/1700). She overlays her two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Photon Alexandra Queen" (???/1200) in Defense Position. Droite activates its effect, detaching both Overlay Units to return all monsters on the field to their owners' hands and inflict 500 damage to both players for each card returned, hoping to at least end the duel in a Draw. Tron activates his face-down "Medallion Record", negating the effect of "Alexandra Queen" as it was activated by detaching Overlay Units.

Turn 6: Tron
"Genome Heriter" treated as "Photon Papilloperative" attacks and destroys "Alexandra Queen". "Death Butterfly Invitation" inflicts 1500 damage to Droite (Droite 500 → 0)
