    We can clearly see a common theme in Revolver's card that the longer he Duels, the less able to properly speak languages he becomes.
    I actually think it might be from following greek:

    Torus: Basically a 3-dimensional Ring (Wikipedia)
    Baena: From Bainein, greek for "to go", also as in Amphisbaena (for reference)

    This would make more sense, since Torusbaene consists from 4 Torus and appereantly has legs to walk.

    I'm no greek expert though, so no guarantee on anything.

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

    I'm not too sure either. The Torus you mentioned would be トーラス in Japanese, which would be even further from トゥリス than the Tris (トリス ) I went with.

    I tried researching a bit more and got to Turris, latin for "towers". Taking that with "baena" meaning "to go" in Greek, the idea here could be moving towers. At least, that's what I think makes the most sense with the card's image.

    Topologic Bomber Dragon names comes in part from 'logic bomb' and 'topologic' from network architecture.

    Searching 'logic torus' you end up with: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torus_interconnect

    A torus interconnect is a switch-less network topology for connecting processing nodes in a parallel computer system.

    In geometry, a torus is created by revolving a circle about an axis coplanar to the circle. While this is a general definition in geometry, the topological properties of this type of shape describes the network topology in its essence.
    The matrix in the background kinda resembles a torus network.

    The '-baena' suffix could also be for 'vent'.

    Lots of fans in the design.

    Looks like only 1 Yusaku Link monster this time around. A nice breather after the 5 we got last set.

    How many of the ones in the new deck were his? One positive of that I suppose; opens up booster space.

    All he's used so far is "Powercode Talker", as far as I'm aware.

    It's liable that we might get his Space Insulator that he used again Faust, which cross-promotes well with Powercode Talker. That's about it, though, and he hasn't used anything else new. Mainly because, for once, he hasn't been the sole person Dueling for the past near-dozen episodes.

    EDIT: One thing that would be nice is if the space between Trickstar Bloom and Gouki The Master Ogre was a second Gouki Link. Thing is, with Bloom coming after Bella Madonna, it's seems likely that a second Gouki Link would come after Master if it existed. Meaning that so far, signs point to us getting a third Trickstar Link, or a miscellanous Link used by Blue Angel, ala Dark Angel.
