    ARC-V Episode 136 Discusssion: Evil-Turned Hero - Combined Powers

    Remember City's hero? Remember Heartland's peacemaker? Remember You Show's star duelist? Remember Academia's nemesis? Remember He's evil now. Thanks to the ARC-V, Stardand, City and Heartland are connected through holes that lead to Academia and everyone can see the gigantic, EVA-01-colored Duel Monster. And he can talk. And he was wished by all the people that wanted entertaining, violent duels. Those people are us. So, is the person responsible for creating such entertainment Seto Kaiba? Or Yami Yugi who gave him the idea in the first place?

    Anyway, like Zorc rampaged on Egypt because he was the ultimate evil Ka created through the darkness of the Egyptians, Zarc being the combined creation of four Duel Monsters and a dude goes on a rampage through all dimensions to defeat every opponent who could possibly defeat him. Kind of.

    Layra is hearing Ray again and is trying to find his "Too-sama" (even though he never talked to him) and Reiji goes after his Mokuba, while Edo and Sora are trying to do something against Zarc. The Professor is wondering why Ray hasn't been revived yet.

    Zarc is wrecking shit on the Fusion Dimension while searching for a challenger. I mean who doesn't want to duel a super-giant dragon in a children's card game that is so complicated that real life kids can't figure out how to play it right? He attacks a bunch of innocent people, but his attack is blocked by Destiny HERO Decision Guy. Finally founding challengers in form of Sora and Edo, Zarc takes the form of a Devil Jin-version of Yuya, complete with Haou eyes.

    I guess being a Supreme King makes you talk like Jack Atlas. Zarc begins his turn by setting his two Haoumon cards, Zero and Infinity in his Pendulum Zone, which allow him to Pendulum Summon Level 1 to Level 12 monsters. Well, since he doesn't wear the Pendulum pendant, he won't chant Yuya's usual "Yurero, tamashii no Pendulum! Tenkuu ni egake hikari no arc!" He Pendulum Summons his two Level 4 Haoukenryuu Darkvrm in Attack Position and end his turn.

    Edo begins his turn and do you expect him to Fusion Summon a new guy? Of course not. He fuses his Drillguy and Decisionguy to Fusion Summon Dystopiaguy. The British anti-hero tries to use Dystopiaguy's effect to inflict damage equal to Drillguy's ATK on Zarc, but as long Zarc controls a Haou monster (so, do Odd-Eyes Rebellion and Odd-Eyes Raging count, too?), Haoumon Zero negates any damage. And thanks to Haoumon Infinity, Zarc gains Life Points instead. Like with Yugo before, Edo tries to pull a Jim/O'Brien on Yuya, but Zarc doesn't even bother reacting. Dystopiaguy attacks a Darkvrm, but as long as Zarc controls another Haou monster, he can negate the attack. Then Edo activates the Spell Card D-Soul Burst to half Dystopiaguy's ATK and inflict 1400 damage to both players. While Edo loses Life Points, Zarc gains Life Points instead and has 7000 Life Points now. Due to Dystopiaguy's ATK being changed, his effect destroys one of the Darkvrms, then Edo ends his turn by setting a card.

    Sora begins his turn by sending DT-Modoki, Scissor Bear and Scissor Tiger to his Graveyard to activate Des-Toy Sanctuary, then he uses Des-Toy Fusion to fuse his three monsters to Fusion Summon Mad Chimaera. Mad Chimaraera destroys Darkvrm, but instead of taking 1000 battle damage, Zarc gains Life Points instead. Since Darkvvrm is a Pendulum Monster, it goes to the Extra Deck and cannot be Special Summoned by Mad Chimaera's effect, a scenario that happened previously when Sora dueled Yuya for the first time. Sora pulls out the Pendulum pendant to help "Yuya" remembering and he even calls him "Shishou" like he did when he annoyed Yuya all the time back then. Zarc however doesn't give a shit. He's not even annoyed by all the talk Edo and Sora are delievering. You can a single tear dropping from Sora's face, then he sets a card and end his turn.

    Spoiler Alert!

    Zarc begins and he Pendulum Summons his two Darkvrms, but Edo reacts to that by activating his Trap Card D-Hyper Nova to destroy the two monsters, while Sora chains with the Trap Card Des-Toy Mad Parade to destroy all cards Zarc controls and inflict 500 damage for each card, resulting that Zarc loses four cards and 2000 Life Points. For a brief moment, Edo and Sora celebrate for clearing Zarc's entire field. Yes, a little bonding is actually nice. Well, the problem is that their opponent is Zarc. Since cards were destroyed while Zarc was holding him in his hand, he Special Summons Astrograph Magician from his hand and the cards that were destroyed return on the same place where they were. He tributes Astrograph Magician to banish Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, Starve Venom Fusion Dragon and Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon to Tougou Shoukan Haouryuu Zarc. Like with Ra no Yokushinryuu or Sin Truth Dragon, Zarc becomes one with his monster.

    During the time Sora and Edo are running away to find a safe spot where they can duel properly, Kurosaki and Kaito enter the duel and they took 2000 intrulsion damage. And due to Kurosaki's Duel Disk, the Field Spell Crossover is also activated. Zarc activates... Zarc's effect to destroy all monsters his opponents control and inflict damage equal the combined ATK of their monsters on Sora and Edo, causing them to lose. However, Haoryuu Zarc cannot attack during the turn the effect is activated, thus Kurosaki and Kaito are saved. Sora gives Kurosaki the pendant and Kurosaki begins his turn.

    The end.


    I like the concept of dueling Zarc.
    Spoiler Alert!

    It's a big survival duel. Who will last longer? Zarc or the Lancers. How many Lancers will lose until Ray will appear to take him down? It's a fair handicap. I prefer that instead of Ray, the four Bracelet Girls would fight him instead.


    Preview:
    Spoiler Alert!

    -Kurosaki jumps on Rise Falcon.
    -Zarc Xyz Summons a Haou version of Dark Rebellion.
    -Kaito jumps on the Action platforms to get closer on Zarc.
    I FUCKING HATE DUB NAMES! I HATE DUB NAMES SO MUCH!

    Zarc talks more like Don Thousand than as Jack. He sounds like a generic RPG demon villain and his "I'm attending the audience's wishes" doesn't make sense anymore because literally no one is cheering. I hated Zarc's concept ever since the first Kachidoki duel, but now the more I watch it, the worse it gets.

    On the plus side, Sora's moments today were excellent. Also, had Shun and Kaito waited 3 more seconds, they would start the duel everyone having 4000LP and Zarc Dragon would be out of the field.

    Merry christmas, Org people.

    The Pendant scene was the highlight of this episode, from how Sora tried to callback his first Duel with Yuya via Chimera and Darkwurm, to the point he called him "teacher" finally again. I actually felt sorry for poor Sora. And the Integration Summon was the other best part too, with the CGI and how anime!Zarc is way too over-the-top with its effects and being a Fusion-Synchro-Xyz-Pendulum hybrid.

    Zarc sadly has the typical Yugioh Final Boss quirk of having no personality at all, would have prefered the haminess he had in 126's flashback, but still looking forward to him trashing people.

    The duel writing in this episode was bs, pretty much all sides were pure boss spam and no worthy new cards while Zarc just sit there watching the opponent giving him free LP via his overpowered Scales. Also anime!Astrograph Summoning anime!Zarc the way it did would be the equivalent of Donny Summoning iC1000 with Winning Formula or Z-One Summoning anime!Sephylon with Time Maiden, basically not going through the whole effort to Summon it (in this case, Summoning the 4 Dragons legitimely and then Astrograph). However I still fucking love Astrograph, art, effect, flavor, everything.

    Something weird to mention, but Zarc's yellow eyes were pretty for me, really piercing...

    Merry Zarcmas everybody.

    Dammit Aster, what happened to Decider? And where did your Yugo reasoning go. Least it seems that Shay has the right idea.

    anime!Decider only works on the turn it was sent to the Graveyard, so he couldn't use it to avoid Zarc's effect. Don't know why he didn't use it with D - Soul Burst though given it was activated on the same turn Decider was sent to the Graveyard...

    Now that you say it: Edo could have survived another turn indeed (or atleast negated the damage of his Spell card). That makes no sense at all...

    You'll never be "Kurosaki Shun riding a backflipping Revolution Falcon then jumping on a driving motorcycle"-cool.

    I would've prefered zarc spamming the 4 dragons in one turn rather than summoning zarc in his second turn but there was no time for that in the episode.
    One thing: zarc is the first pendulum with xyz/synchro/fusion that when destroyed on the monster zone it doesn't put himself in the pendulum zone

    Because of it's strong, but on other cards depending, protection effects, once you get rid of the protection, you can most likely kill the card itself over and over again anyways. Kinda funny though that they added this effect for the OCG, but removed the self-summoning effect.
