Sal looked over the warehouse and said, “We’ll keep this duel inside. I’m challenging you for leadership of the Tarantulas. No need to share our change in leadership with the entire world.”

Hotaru said, “There won’t be any change in leadership.”

Sal and Hotaru both activated their duel disks.

“DUEL!”

Sal: 8000
Hotaru: 8000

Sal said, “I’ll start! I summon Mother Grizzly and activate Greydle Impact. During my End Phase, I can use Greydle Impact to add Greydle Slime to my hand! Turn end!”

Hotaru responded, “My turn! DRAW! I summon Strider of the Tranquil Pond and activate Spring of the Mayflies.

The inside of the warehouse seemed to transform into a natural spring environment.

Hotaru added, “Once per turn, I can pay a multiple of 200 life points to summon any amount of Mayfly Tokens to my hand. However, they’re all destroyed during my end phase and I can only special summon one monster from my extra deck during a turn I use the effect. I summon four Mayfly Tokens.”

As four small monsters appeared alongside Strider of the Tranquil Pond, Hotaru’s life points fell to 7200.

Hotaru declared, “I tune my four Mayfly Tokens with my level two Strider of the Tranquil Pond. SYNCHRO SUMMON! LEVEL SIX! SHADOW SCORPION! Shadow Scorpion attacks Mother Grizzly!”

Shadow Scorpion vanished suddenly, before its tail emerged, striking down Mother Grizzly and reducing Sal’s life points to 7300.

Sal laughed, “Mother Grizzly’s effect activates! I special Summon Greydle Eagle.”

Hotaru said, “I leave two face-down cards and end my turn.”

Sal declared, “My turn! DRAW! I summon Greydle Cobra. Greydle Slime’s effect from my hand. I can destroy Greydle Cobra and Greydle Eagle, then summon Greydle Slime. Greydle Eagle’s effect activates, allowing it to possess your Shadow Scorpion! And when Greydle Slime is summoned by its own effect, I can special summon Greydle Cobra from my graveyard. I tune my level three Greydle Cobra with my level five Greydle Slime. SYNCHRO SUMMON! LEVEL EIGHT! GREYDLE DRAGON! When Greydle Dragon is successfully Synchro Summoned, I can destroy two cards on the field. I choose your face-down card on the left and Spring of the Mayflies.”

Hotaru declared, “I activate Ojama Trio.”

As the appearance of the warehouse returned to normal, three Ojama Tokens appeared beside Shadow Scorpion and Greydle Dragon.

Sal said, “Now all that’s left... Greydle Dragon! Attack directly!”

Hotaru declared, “I activate Locust Swarm!”

Greydle Dragon fired a stream of slime at Hotaru. However, as four Locust Tokens appeared one intercepted Greydle Dragon’s attack.

Sal said, “Shadow Scorpion, use your effect to ATTACK DIRECTLY!”

Hotaru knew her own monster well. She included Shadow Scorpion primarily as a means to take down enemies once she had successfully flooded their fields with tokens, to take them down while they had no means of retaliation. As Shadow Scorpion’s stinger struck her, her life points fell to 5100.

Sal added, “During my End Phase, I add Greydle Alligator to my hand!”

Hotaru shouted, “My turn! DRAW! I summon Shadow Scythe Mantis. Now, I tune my three Locust Tokens with my level four Shadow Scythe Mantis! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Level Seven! Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle! Now, Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle attacks Shadow Scorpion!”

Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle drilled at Shadow Scorpion, dropping Sal’s life points to 6900.

Hotaru said, “When Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle inflicts Battle Damage, I can draw a card. I set one card face-down and end my turn!”

Sal couldn’t hold back his laughter. He shouted, “It looks like I’ve already won. I summon Greydle Alligator in attack mode. Then, using Greydle Impact’s other effect, I can destroy Greydle Alligator and your face-down card!”

Hotaru shouted, “My Mirror Force!”

Sal laughed, “Greydle Alligator can now possess your Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle! Greydle Dragon! ATTACK DIRECTLY!”

Greydle Dragon unleashed a devastating attack, reducing Hotaru’s life points to 2100.

Sal continued, “And what a cruel twist of irony to finish you off with your own monster? Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle, attack directly!”

Hotaru could only watch as Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle struck her, knocking her into one of the walls of the warehouse. Her Life Points fell to 0.

Sal walked up to Hotaru and said, “I already know exactly where you like to hide that key. What’s the point of selling a deck if the buyer can’t use it? You always hide that key somewhere most of Security would be too nervous to retrieve it, just in case you ever get arrested.”

Hotaru said, “You wouldn’t”

Sal said, “Sometimes, in this business, it’s necessary to take a shameless action. After all, taking another person’s deck isn’t the kindest thing to do. Don’t take this personally, I just need that key.” He then reached for the zipper on Hotaru’s riding suit, and pulled at the zipper. “It’s not here?”

Hotaru kicked Sal away and said, “I already handed it to him” as she zipped up her riding suit. “The plan was to open the box out there and prove we didn’t take any cards out.”

Sal said, “As I said before. Your affections for that particular security member are clouding your judgment. They’re all alike. And even this one is simply using you as bait to arrest the rest of us. You remember how before your little encounter with him, he was obsessed with taking this whole organization down. We stole one little card from his little sister, and that led to him joining Security just so he could have the means to track us down and arrest us. You think spending that little bit of time in his arms would make him simply drop that obsession.”

Hotaru said, “There’s more to it than that. You remember the invasion, right? We were forced to team up with him because there was a much bigger threat right in front of us. We couldn’t have kicked them out of our dimension without his help.”

Sal said, “Yes, but now that they’re gone, we can only go back to being Security’s enemy. You’ll have to choose between us and them... on second thought, I’ll make this one easy. You are no longer a member of this organization! As a parting gift, we’ll let you keep your deck.”

Ryuichi took a call over the communication in his helmet.

A female voice over the helmet said, “I just saw something in the call logs. It looks like the chief contacted the Tarantulas while you were dueling.”

Ryuichi said, “He contacted them? Really? Chief just made a suspicious move there. They needed to bring Yuri into the open when it was discovered that only the chief could get to Yang’s duel disk. Now he makes a real misstep.”

The female voice over the call added, “I also saw him putting a monster card into an envelope. I was able to catch that it had level stars, but the color of the card itself was different. He said it was for 227.”

Ryuichi said, “We’ll have to talk more about the card later, where we know he can’t watch us.”

At that moment, Hotaru stepped out of the warehouse. Her head was hung in shame.

-=-=-

Kyoshiro casually stepped into Leo Akaba’s office, before kneeling down.

Leo said, “We finished analyzing the cards Dennis sent, and used them to make our own prototypes. I would like you and Sophie to test them out when we return to Synchro Dimension.”

Kyoshiro said, “Understood, even if it means trusting Sophie with such an important task.”

Leo then handed a few cards to Kyoshiro and said, “I realize that you and Sophie are not on the best terms after that incident where you had to eliminate her emotional attachment, but I don’t want your little feud to get in the way of the mission.”

Kyoshiro nodded, “Professor, I believe that anyone who would allow their emotions to interfere with the mission is ill-suited to undertake such an important task.”

Leo said, “Would it be any different with you?”

Kyoshiro asked, “What?”

Leo explained, “Your thirst for revenge against that Accel Synchro user can drive you to ignore more important targets. He humiliated you by staining your perfect record. And even when you were faced down by someone who you knew would lead a duel army against me; you did nothing to even try defeating him because you were more worried about your next encounter with that one opponent. So don’t try to tell me that you never let your emotions interfere with the mission at hand. In that regard, you are no better than Sophie.”

Kyoshiro appeared shattered by these words, he had always viewed himself as a perfect soldier. He always followed orders. He was always in line. However, the very notion that even his emotions could cloud his judgment seemed surreal. He actively purged himself of emotional attachments simply so he wouldn’t be distracted from the mission. But the idea that his rage towards one enemy could be just as distracting was too much.

Leo ordered, “Now get to your mission already.”

Kyoshiro then stood up and left Leo’s office, still shaken by Leo’s speech on letting one’s emotions interfere with the mission. He then turned towards Sophie, who stood outside, and said, “We’re going back to Synchro Dimension. We have until the end of the Friendship Cup to make our move.”

Sophie asked, “Why?”

Kyoshiro said, “Our top spy in Synchro Dimension will fill us in on the details.”

-=-=-

Ryuichi stepped into an apartment and declared, “I’m home!”

At that moment, an 18-year-old girl said, “Welcome back!”

Ryuichi said, “Sorry, I brought a guest with me.”

Hotaru then stepped through the doorway, still hanging her head.

The girl shouted, “NO! Bro, you already brought back one moping freeloader. We don’t need another!”

Ryuichi’s sister then glanced towards the couch, where Tetsu was clearly trying in vain to go through some of his spare cards.

Ryuichi said, “I have my own job now, Mom and Dad aren’t here to tell me what to do.”

Hotaru mumbled, “You let your sister live here?”

Ryuichi added, “When she got accepted into Tops University, I was already with Security, so instead of sending her to live with some stranger, Mom and Dad ended up sending her to live with me. The old chief gave her an internship with Security.”

Tetsu finally looked up and said, “Did you bring my deck with you?”

Hotaru said, “There was a little mishap when I went back to get it. One of the guys took away my leadership position and kicked out. Your deck would be who knows where by now if I had the key with me when I went in there.”

Tetsu sighed, “Oh...”

Ryuichi added, “That said, thanks to a tip from someone in this very room, I not only have a good idea just who the buyer is, but a card he sent out.”

Ryuichi’s sister said, “Right! You said we would talk about that now. I know it definitely wasn’t a synchro monster. I had no idea what kind of monster card that was.”

Tetsu set a copy of Gagagigo the Risen on the table and asked, “Was it something like this?”

Ryuichi’s sister said, “No, it had normal-looking level stars, and the frame was more of a purple color. Kinda like a darker version of the frame on trap cards.”

Tetsu said, “Definitely a fusion monster.”

Ryuichi said, “If the monster sent to 227 really is a fusion monster, this could be everything we need to expose Roger as a traitor.”

Tetsu added, “Some of the duelists from Standard also use fusion. We need to prove some connection to Academia and find a way to get back my deck."
Arc-V: Tarantula's Mutiny
Hey, look. I featured an actual deck type again! Mature content warning because Sal tried to steal the key and you know exactly where she hid it!
Loading...
Dennis looked out the window to the Friendship Cup estate. His curiosity had gotten the better of him, but he needed a way to slip out undetected. He opened the window and looked down. Even with his acrobatic talents, it would still be a very steep fall. Probably too far for him to make it without breaking a bone or two, which would certainly clue tournament officials and the council guard to his escape.

Dennis mumbled, “From what I can tell, Ryuichi is supposed to meet some sexy lady for a duel tonight to win back Tetsu-san’s deck.”

He began pacing around nervously before remembering something he heard before. Whenever the local TV station gets word of a riding duel, they go to cover it. Yuya’s exhibition duel ended already, so there would be a chance it would get on the air once they started. He reached for the TV remote, before pausing.

“It’s just not the same as really being there to see her in person.”

-=-=-

Ryuichi’s D-Wheel approached a magnificently designed bridge The shape of the bridge appeared to have a branching point in the middle, that led in three different directions, fitting for the three-headed ice dragon it was named after.

Hotaru laughed, “I wonder just how many bridges you had to check before you got here. I wondered if he would get the name right, especially since he’s never heard of the dragons of the Ice Barrier.”

Ryuichi said, “You brought the deck with you, right?”

Hotaru laughed, “Not exactly. I locked it up in a box back at our hideout, but I have the only key with me.”

Hotaru held up a small key, showing it off proudly to Ryuichi. Ryuichi could only reach with surprise as Hotaru then unzipped her riding suit slightly.

Ryuichi said, “You’re not really gonna”

Before he could even finished saying it, Hotaru dropped the key down the front of her riding suit and zipped it right back up.

Ryuichi said, “I really should have expected you to try that one again.”

Hotaru grinned and winked, “You know you’d like to reach in and take the key.”

Ryuichi thought to himself, “Don’t let her get to you! She used those tricks to sneak away last time.”

Hotaru asked, “Flustered already? You’ve already seen so much more of me, Ryuichi.”

Ryuichi said, “Let’s just get this duel started, already.”

Hotaru rushed to her D-Wheel and said, “Just try to catch me.”

Both then rode off, making their way to the duel route.

“RIDING DUEL! ACCELERATION!”

A helicopter soon was spotted hovering over the duel, and on board, Melissa Clare shouted, “After the amazing display of power put on by Jack Atlas, we have received word of a riding duel in development. Is that? I can’t believe it! The cowboy of Security himself rides again! And his opponent appears to be none other than the legendary queen of the Tarantulas, Hotaru Kasumori!”

-=-=-

Dennis, sitting in his room, looked at the close-up shown on his TV, whistling, “She’s quite the bombshell!” Seemingly failing to notice a line of red running down from his nose.

Meanwhile, in the next room over, Gongenzaka overhears this and becomes interested in watching the duel. As he sees the two racing for the right to take the first turn, he falls back with a nosebleed of his own.

Dennis shouted, “Gon-chan, you watching too?”

Gongenzaka could only mumble, “I see why he got distracted.”

-=-=-

Ryuichi and Hotaru raced to the first turn, each vying for the right to the first move. Hotaru then slipped around the corner before Ryuichi could.

Hotaru declared, “My turn! I play Ominous Buzzing to give you two Scarab Tokens. Then, I set a face-down monster and a face-down card. Turn end!”

Ryuichi started, “My turn! DRAW!”

Hotaru responded, “Before you even try anything, I activate Ojama Trio!”

Ryuichi was now surrounded by monsters, none of which he placed on the field. The two Scarab Tokens were front and center, but the three Ojama Tokens made it so he didn’t have any room for his own monsters. He could only look at his hand, not seeing Barbarian of the Dragonstone, and declare, “Turn end!”

Melissa shouted, “AAHHH! Things are looking down. Even among Commons, the Tarantulas have a bad reputation. I’m sure the city will unite to cheer for Security this time!”

Hotaru declared, “First, I activate Bookworm Infestation. I can block off one open spell and trap zone for each token on your side of the field. In this case, all five. This is how I keep Fusion from standing a chance against me. Now, I flip summon Dandylion. Next, I summon Token-Eating Antlion. I’ll destroy two Ojama tokens to raise my Token-Eating Antlion’s level to three!”

As two of the Ojama Tokens were dragged into a sand trap, the lingering effect of Ojama Trio dropped Ryuichi’s life points to 7400 while Hotaru’s tuner increased its own level to three.

Hotaru continued, “I tune my level three Dandylion with my level three Token-Eating Antlion! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Level Six! Shadow Scorpion!”

A shadowy monster emerges and stares at Ryuichi.

Hotaru added, “Dandylion’s effect, I get two fluff tokens for myself. And my Shadow Scorpion can attack directly if all of your monsters are tokens!”

Shadow Scorpion readied its tail, and struck at Ryuichi, completely ignoring the tokens. As Ryuichi took the hit, his life points fell to 5300.

Hotaru declared, “Turn end!”

-=-=-

At a bar in commons, several people are watching the screen.

“YEAH! Show that Security what Commons is made of!”

“In this particular case, I might actually cheer for the Security. My deck was stolen by the Tarantulas and I haven’t been able to put together a new one yet.”

“What! Cheering for a duel chaser? Are you out of your mind?”

-=-=-

Ryuichi laughed, “I think you gave me more breathing room than you wanted. My turn! Draw!” He looked at Barbarian of the Dragonstone, realizing the card would have to fulfill a different now that he finally had it. “I place Barbarian of the Dragonstone and Healer of the Dragonstone in the scales! Now, PENDULUM SUMMON! Rogue of the Dragonstone! Archer of the Dragonstone! I tune my level three Archer of the Dragonstone with my level three Rogue of the Dragonstone! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Level Six! Templar of the Dragonstone! Now! Templar! Attack Shadow Scorpion!”

Templar of the Dragonstone rushed in and cut at Shadow Scorpion, reducing Hotaru’s life points to 7300.

Ryuichi continued, “When Templar of the Dragonstone inflicts battle damage, you can draw. And, that draw triggers both Pendulum Effects! Barbarian’s effect destroys Bookworm Infestation and Healer lets me draw two!”

Hotaru said, “So, it’s true that you picked up some of those Pendulum cards, and it looks like they help to cover your glaring weakness.”

Ryuichi said, “That’s right. Turn end!”

Melissa shouted into her microphone, “And there you have it! He may shrug off protocol every so often, but he just took a huge advantage over the queen of the Tarantulas by making use of the sweeping new ability known as Pendulum Summon!”

Hotaru looked at her hand. Even though she had Shadow Scythe Mantis in hand, summoning it would be a mistake and at best could give her another Shadow Scorpion, not exactly in a position to attack directly. She declared, “I play Cricket Chorus! Summoning three Chirping Cricket Tokens to my side! Turn end!”

Ryuichi shouted, “Fine! I summon Swordsman of the Dragonstone! Now! TEMPLAR! SWORDSMAN! Attack those Cricket Tokens! Turn end!”

Hotaru said, “You might have been able to stop this by not attacking. My turn! Draw! I summon Shadow Scythe Mantis! I tune both Fluff Tokens and my last remaining Chirping Cricket Token with my level four Shadow Scythe Mantis! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Level eight! Queen of the Desert Swarm! Now, attack Swordsman of the Dragonstone!”

Queen of the Desert Swarm struck down Swordsman of the Dragonstone brilliantly, leaving behind one Larva Token in Swordsman’s place and taking Ryuichi’s life points down to 4050.

Melissa announced, “With both Synchro monsters tied in terms of attack power, this duel is really getting tense.”

Hotaru declared, “Turn end!”

Ryuichi said, “I play Onset of the Chosen Heroes, adding Squire of the Dragonstone to my hand! Turn end!”

Hotaru laughed, “During your end phase, I activate Lethal Stinger to give myself two Wasp Tokens. My turn! Draw! I activate Tuning Antennae. With this, I can treat two tokens I control as Tuners. This is where I take back control of this duel! I tune my level eight Queen of the Desert Swarm with both level two Wasp Tokens. DOUBLE TUNING! From the depths of a great magma pit, the queen takes on her strongest form! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Level Twelve! Queen of the Volcano Swarm! With her power increase, she strikes down on those who oppose her! ATTACK! Templar of the Dragonstone!”

Queen of the Volcano Swarm launched a fearsome strike against Templar of the Dragonstone. However, Templar’s 2800 ATK wasn’t near enough to contend with Queen of the Volcanic Swarm’s 5800 ATK. The attack destroyed Templar instantly, placing an Igneous Larva Token in its place and reducing Ryuichi’s life points to 1050. To add to the fire, Queen of the Volcanic Swarm increased her own ATK to 6300.

Hotaru said, “Turn end!”

Melissa shouted, “A devastatingly powerful monster appears, set to keep this duel under her complete control. The hapless cowboy can’t help but watch as his field is once again buried in tokens!”

Ryuichi shouted, “My turn! DRAW! I place one face-down card and end my turn!”

Hotaru declared, “I used Battle Mania to stop your friend in his tracks. This time, I drew a card that will give me the chance at finishing this without waiting until your turn, although I’ll have to destroy the very source of my monster’s immense power.”

This could be it. Ryuichi realized that with five tokens occupying his side of the field and Queen of the Volcano Swarm looming over him to make sure other monsters can’t prove a threat, this could very well be the end of the duel.

Hotaru declared, “I play Token Thanksgiving! Destroying all five tokens and increasing my own life points by 4000. Since you still have one Ojama Token, you’ll have to take 300 damage!”

In a bright flash, the five tokens standing between Ryuichi and Queen of the Volcano Swarm vanished, increasing Hotaru’s life points to 11300 while Ryuichi’s life points dropped to 750 and Queen of the Volcano Swarm’s attack power dropped to its original 3800.

Melissa shouted, “This could be it! Queen of the Volcano Swarm is open for a direct attack. IT’S ALL OVER!!!”

Hotaru declared, “Queen of the Volcano Swarm! ATTACK DIRECTLY!”

Ryuichi declares, “I activate Scrap-Iron Scarecrow!”

Hotaru shouted, “But how?”

Ryuichi said, “Don’t underestimate me. You’ve just made your last fatal mistake by clearing my field.”

Melissa said, “Even though he managed to save his life points from this attack, can he manage a turnaround at this point, even with that devastating level 12 Synchro monster looming over him.”

Hotaru looked at the last card in her hand and declared, “I set one card face-down and end my turn. But I have to warn you. That barbarian won’t help you get rid of my monster. She’s immune to destruction by card effects!”

Ryuichi said, “I know. I have something else in mind for her. My turn! DRAW! PENDULUM SUMMON! Archer of the Dragonstone from my extra deck, along with Dancer of the Dragonstone and Sorcerer of the Dragonstone from my hand. Because my Sorcerer and Dancer were special summoned, I can special summon Rogue of the Dragonstone from my graveyard, you can draw now!”

Hotaru drew a card, then watched as her face-down Mirror Force was destroyed before her eyes and Ryuichi drew two more cards. All the while, Rogue of the Dragonstone began tightly hugging Sorcerer of the Dragonstone.

Ryuichi declared, “I tune my level three Sorcerer of the Dragonstone with my level three Rogue of the Dragonstone! Synchro Summon! Wizard of the Dragonstone! Now, I summon  Squire of the Dragonstone! With Squire’s effect, I revive Swordsman of the Dragonstone. I tune my level three Dancer of the Dragonstone with my level one Squire of the Dragonstone! SYNCHRO SUMMON! Princess of the Dragonstone! With her effect, Princess of the Dragonstone revives Templar of the Dragonstone with his attack and defense reduced to 0 and his effect negated. You can draw! Now! CLEAR MIND!”

Melissa Claire shouted, “Clear Mind? You viewers at home know exactly what that means!”

-=-=-

Gongenzaka looked at the TV in front of him, realizing that what he was about to see was no ordinary synchro summon. And on the other side of the wall, Dennis suddenly took on a serious face, as if trying to take notes as to exactly what was happening.

-=-=-

Hotaru knew exactly which monster would be showing up now, and it also made sense why Ryuichi didn’t simply use Wizard’s effect right away to force Queen of the Volcano Swarm back to her extra deck.

Ryuichi continued, “I tune my level six Templar of the Dragonstone with my level four Princess of the Dragonstone. Unite the souls of the many to awaken a hero! ACCEL SYNCHRO SUMMON! AWAKENED DRAGON HERO!”

The bright light from Awakened Dragon Hero emerging with 3400 ATK seemed small at first compared to Queen of the Volcano Swarm’s 3800 ATK, but Awakened Dragon Hero had allies present who could help.

Ryuichi declared, “Now! Wizard of the Dragonstone’s effect! I return Queen of the Volcano Swarm to your extra deck. Then you can draw. Awakened Dragon Hero powers up! Swordsman of the Dragonstone’s effect! I special summon another copy of Sorcerer of the Dragonstone from my deck and give you another draw. Awakened Dragon Hero obtains power once again! Now, ALL TOGETHER! DIRECT ATTACK!!!

The combined ATK of the five monsters at this point was 11650, only 350 points higher than Hotaru’s life points. Hotaru had lost.

Hotaru said, “Well played. As promised, I’ll hand over the deck we took.”

The two then rode off to the warehouse districts, leaving everyone in the helicopter confused.

Melissa Claire asked, “Isn’t he going to arrest her this time?”

The co-pilot said, “I just got a signal. It looks like they’re retrieving stolen goods first.”

Melissa said, “What?”

-=-=-

Jean Michel Roger sat in his office, wondering about the whole situation. He looked behind him and said, “The Tarantulas are certainly a huge threat to the full invasion, having prior experience against us and refusing to play along with our cover-up. Thieves they may be, but even they would be eager to fend off a full-scale invasion.”

The mysterious figure standing behind him nodded.

Jean continued, “However, the right purchase could destabilize them enough to make them a non-threat and perhaps even inspire a change in leadership.”

-=-=-

Hotaru stepped into the warehouse and said, “He won. As agreed, he gets his lookalike’s deck.”

One of the members of the Tarantulas said, “About that deck. Someone approached us with a lot of money. We need the key back to complete the sale.”

Hotaru said, “I told you guys we weren’t selling that deck unless I won.”

The one member said, “Your affections for that one Security guy are clouding your judgments. This deck could be our big payoff and you’re ruining the opportunity of a lifetime trying to get Matsuhara to hold you in his arms once more.”

Hotaru protested, “It’s not like that! One thing led to another and it was just a meaningless one-time... thing. Now who made the offer, Sal?”

Sal declared, “We never rat out customers. That’s the first rule of the Tarantulas.”
Arc-V: Clash for the Stolen Deck
The original idea was that Dennis and Gongenzaka follow Ryuichi to the site of the duel. Gongenzaka would call Dennis out for being a pervert, but Dennis will respond by pointing out Gongenzaka's nosebleed in a classic not so above it all moment. However, the building where Friendship Cup competitors stay is too high up and too secure about keeping competitors in. Trying to follow continuity to a small extent resulted in killing a funny scene.

Since I plan to make Hotaru play a key role in the story, and stick around longer than simply one chapter. I felt it would be smart to show off the cards she likes to use to squeeze out room for her opponent's monsters.

Special Summon 3 “Chirping Cricket Tokens” (Insect-Type/WATER/Level 2/1000 ATK/500 DEF) in defense position. These Tokens cannot be used as Tributes for a Tribute Summon. You cannot Special Summon other monsters during the turn you activate this effect.

 

Strider of the Tranquil Pond

WATER

Level 2

Insect/Tuner

If this card is used as Synchro Material for a Synchro Summon, all other monsters must be Tokens. You can tribute 1 Token you control to Special Summon this card from your Graveyard. The effect of “Strider of the Tranquil Pond” can only be used once per turn.

300/500

 

Tablet of Token Souls

Spell (Continuous)

When a Token on either side of the field is destroyed as a result of battle, place one Token Counter on this card (max 3). You can remove 3 Token Counters from this card to draw a card.


Personally, I believe the whole "You can't special summon other monsters the turn you activate this card" helps to slow her down and keep her from building up her own side too fast.
Tetsuya wandered the unfamiliar streets of the city, mostly walking past the warehouses and run-down buildings of Commons. It didn’t add up to him why, exactly, that security officer told him they were told to round up the Lancers. He knew his similar appearance to Ryuichi could lead to some confusion here in Synchro Dimension, but never did either one ever manage to meet up with any counterpart from Standard, and THANKFULLY not a counterpart from Fusion Dimension to be seen.

It was after a short while that Tetsu finally set upon a warehouse sitting with the door slightly open. He wondered if this could be the place where the Lancers were hiding out after being mistaken for enemies, likely by Serena’s fusion summoning. He slowly crept towards the door and opened it, before stepping inside.

As the duelists inside seemed to stir, Tetsu shouted, “It’s just me!”

A feminine figure suddenly stepped out of the shadows and said, “You have some nerve barging into our hideout like that, Ryuichi. Are you trying to arrest me again?”

Tetsu replied, “I’m not Ryuichi. And who are you, anyway?”

The woman duelist shouted, “You would DARE forget my name? Even after what we’ve done together!”

Tetsu shouted, “I already told you, I’m not Ryuichi. I’m not even from this dimension.”

One of the duelists laughed, “Nice try, Matsuhara. At least try something a little more convincing. Another dimension? Just who would believe something like that?”

The woman then turned and slapped her lackey in his face. She said, “WE’RE not playing along with Security’s little cover-up, REMEMBER?” She then turned to Tetsu and said, “All right, even if you’re not Ryuichi Matsuhara, I can’t just let you leave here without a duel. Just remember that you’re facing Hotaru Nakamura, Leader of the Tarantulas.”

Tetsu said, “I’m not exactly familiar with the Tarantulas. Are you some kind of rock band?”

Hotaru shouted, “NO! WE’RE THE BIGGEST, MOST NOTORIOUS CARD STEALING RING IN THE ENTIRE CITY. YOU HAVE SOME NERVE TO MESS WITH US! If you win, you can walk out with all your cards. If you lose, we’ll be keeping your entire deck.”

A few of the grunts then slammed the warehouse door closed as Hotaru activated her duel disk. Tetsu had no choice, he had to take part in this duel if he wanted to leave this place.

“DUEL!!!”

Hotaru: 8000
Tetsu: 8000

Hotaru said, “I’ll start. I play Ominous Buzzing! This card summons two Scarab Tokens to your side of the field. However, the tokens can’t be used as Synchro Material or Fusion Material. Then, I’ll leave a face-down card and activate Tablet of Token Souls. Whenever a Token on either side of the field is destroyed in battle, I can put a counter on this card. Then, by removing three, I can draw a card.

Tetsu glared at the two tokens on his side of the field. He neglected to mention that as a specialist in Rank 4 Xyz summoning, Tetsu was incapable of putting these tokens with 0 ATK to use. There were no high-level monsters in his deck he could simply tribute summon to do away with the tokens before him. His only hope was to find a card that would let him wipe his field of the tokens and get back to work.

Tetsu said, “My turn! DRAW! I activate Xyber-Break, sending Xyber Bladran to the graveyard. Next, I summon Xyber Brigadier. Brigadier’s first effect! I equip Bladran from my graveyard. BRIGADIER! ATTACK DIRECTLY!”

Hotaru shouted, “Activate! Plague of Locusts! I special summon four Locust Tokens to my side of the field. Unlike the ones I gave you, I can still use my tokens for bigger things.”

Tetsu replied, “Then I’ll just have to destroy one of the tokens instead.”

As one Locust Token was immediately impaled with Lanzik, a glowing orb appeared hovering over Tablet of Token Souls.

Tetsu continued, “Next, I use my Brigadier’s effect. I pay 500 life points and destroy Bladran to add Xyber Soldier Alpha to my hand. I place Xyber Soldier Alpha in the pendulum zone and use his Pendulum effect to revive Bladran in attack mode. Using my level four Xyber Brigadier and Xyber Bladran, I build the overlay network! XYZ SUMMON! Xybertech Soldier! I leave one face-down card and end my turn.”

Hotaru said, “My turn! DRAW! I summon Shadow Scythe Mantis in attack mode. Now, I tune my three level one Locust Tokens with my level four Shadow Scythe Mantis. SYNCHRO SUMMON! Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle! Rhinoceros Beetle! ATTACK! Xybertech Soldier!”

Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle then lunged at Xybertech Soldier, dropping Tetsu’s life points from 7500 to 7400.

Hotaru continued, “Each time Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle inflicts battle damage, I can draw a card.”

Tetsu shouted, “I chain Xyber Overload! Drawing one card for each unused overlay unit plus one for a total of three.”

Hotaru grinned, “I’d like to see what you can do with only one monster card zone open. GROUND COLLAPSE!”

One lackey said, “That’s the boss for you! This guy’s already caught in her web.”

Tetsu said, “I leave one face-down monster and place Xyber Lady Epsilon in the scales. As long as you can’t damage me, I should be fine. Turn end!”

Hotaru said, “Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle can inflict piercing damage when it attacks a token. For now, I’ll play Cricket Chorus, summoning three Chirping Cricket Tokens to my side of the field.”

Tetsu realized that all three of the tokens were level 2 monsters. Considering how she Synchro Summoned her Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle, it was safe to say she was planning to do something with those tokens later.

Hotaru continued, “Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle! Attack a Scarab Token!”

Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle charged ahead, destroying a Scarab Token and reducing Tetsu’s life points to 4900. Suddenly, another glowing orb appeared over Tablet of Token Souls

Hotaru added, “Whenever Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle inflicts battle damage, I can draw a card. Now, I’ll have one Chirping Cricket Token attack the other Scarab Token.”

The token responded to the order by leaping forward to destroy a scarab token, causing a third glowing orb to appear over Tablet of Token Souls.

Hotaru concluded, “By removing three counters from Tablet of Token Souls, I can draw! Now, I leave a face-down card and end my turn.”

Tetsu looked at his field. Then he looked to Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle. He knew he needed to get rid of that particular bug, and he knew it would also be a priority to get rid of Ground Collapse so he could have some room once again. Thankfully, he had enough space to work with for this turn.

Tetsu declared, “My turn! DRAW! I summon Xyber Tri-pike in attack mode. Then, I flip summon Xyber Lanzik. Using my level four Xyber Tri-pike and Xyber Lanzik, I build the overlay network. XYZ SUMMON! Xybertech Lady! By using one overlay unit, I equip Xyber Bladran to Xyber Lady from my graveyard. Xybertech Lady, attack Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle!”

Hotaru didn’t even bat an eye when Xybertech Lady sliced through Spiral-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle so easily, nor did she even bother to flinch when her life points fell to 7500.

Tetsu continued, “When Xybertech Lady destroys an opponent’s monster while equipped with a Xyber union monster, I can choose one card you control to destroy. I choose Ground Collapse!”

Hotaru shrugged, “I suppose that leaves enough room on your side for me to do this. OJAMA TRIO!”

Tetsu shouted, “WHAT?”

Before Tetsu could fully grasp what was going on, three Ojama tokens now appeared beside Xybertech Lady, meaning he was once again reduced to only one open monster card zone.

Tetsu said, “I end my turn.”

Hotaru said, “My turn, DRAW! I suppose this card will help me destroy your Xyz Monster. I summon Strider of the Tranquil Pond. Next I tune my three level two Chirping Cricket Tokens with my level two Strider of the Tranquil Pond. Now, it’s time to bring out the queen, so she can show her deadly force. SYNCHRO SUMMON! Queen of the Desert Swarm!”

Queen of the Desert Swarm suddenly emerged glaring down Tetsu, who merely grinned in return.

Tetsu said, “Xybertech Lady is still stronger than your monster.”

Xybertech Lady (Xyber Bladran equipped): 3000 ATK
Queen of the Desert Swarm: 2800 ATK

Hotaru said, “In that case, I’ll have to cancel out the power boost from that union monster. MYSTICAL SPACE TYPHOON! DESTROY XYBER BLADRAN!”

Xybertech Lady: 2300 ATK

Hotaru declared, “Queen of the Desert Swarm, ATTACK XYBERTECH LADY!”

The large, sandy colored insect struck at Xybertech Lady with an incredible force, reducing Tetsu’s life points to 4400.

Hotaru added, “Whenever Queen of the Desert Swarm destroys a monster, I can summon one Larva Token to your side of the field in defense mode. It can’t be used for a Synchro or Fusion summon. I also leave one face-down card and end my turn.

Tetsu said, “My turn, DRAW! I’ll pass, for now.”

Hotaru laughed, “You still have some hope of winning? Then I’ll have to crush that hope and you along with it. I summon Token-Eating Antlion. Using Once per turn, Token-Eating Antlion can destroy any number of tokens on the field to increase its own level by the number of tokens destroyed. I think I’ll just destroy one Ojama Token.

As the Ojama Token was destroyed, Tetsu’s life points dropped to 4100. All the while, Tetsu seemed to be smiling that he finally had two open monster card zones.

Hotaru added, “And now that there’s room, I activate Revival Gift to bring back my Strider.”

Tetsu was shocked to see five tokens on his side of the field. Even though a few of them matched level, tokens couldn’t be used for Xyz Summoning at all, even the unrestricted Gift Fiend Tokens.

Hotaru laughed, “Now, it’s time we begin. Using my level eight Queen of the Desert Swarm with my level two Token-eating Antlion and my level two Strider of the Tranquil Pond. DOUBLE TUNING!”

Tetsu said, “This can’t be good.”

Hotaru declared, “Rising forth from a great burst of lava, the queen takes on her strongest form. SYNCHRO SUMMON! QUEEN OF THE VOLCANO SWARM! In this form, she gains 500 attack for each token on the field. Now, I think I’ll attack one Ojama Token.

As Queen of the Volcano Swarm burned the second Ojama Token, Tetsu’s life points fell to 3800 from the lingering effect. A glowing orb appeared over Tablet of Token Souls

Hotaru held up a card, showing it to Tetsu, “This card in my hand is the one I’ll use to finish you off. I hope you like it.”

The card she was showing was none other than Battle Mania. With it, Hotaru could force all of the tokens on Tetsu’s side of the field into attack mode and force them to attack. However, as it stood, Tetsu didn’t have the life points to make it through even one failed attack on Queen of the Volcano Swarm, much less five.

One of Hotaru’s lackeys declared, “Like a bug caught in a web, he’ll struggle until he realizes it’s hopeless, then just accept that he’s being devoured.”

Hotaru said, “I’ll leave one card face-down and end my turn.”

The pressure was on. Tetsu needed a card that could wipe his side of the field to set him up for a Pendulum Summon, then double equip Over-Xybertech Soldier with two copies of Bladran and hope for the best.

Tetsu declared, “My turn! DRAW!”

Hotaru shouted, “Activate! BATTLE MANIA!”

Tetsu stared at the card he had just drawn, Xyber Revolt. This card was designed to wipe the opponent’s side of the field and not his side. He then fell to his knees and said, “I surrender!”

Hotaru mused, “Normally, I would be quick to try selling your cards to the highest bidders, but since you’re also fighting against Academia, I think I’ll just hang onto them for a while. Tell Ryuichi to meet me at the Trishula Bridge tomorrow night... alone.

-=-=-

Ryuichi stepped into Jean-Michael Roger’s office, clearly angry. He said, “I need to see the footage of that invader vanishing. I was sure to confiscate his duel disk and lock it away, setting the clearance level so high, only you could get it out of there.”

Jean responded, “He didn’t use his own duel disk. It looks more like some cohort showed up to retrieve him. Funny, he looks exactly like Yugo and this Yuya Sakaki who uses Pendulum.”

Ryuichi said, “So, are you finally beginning to understand the situation better? That cohort is one of several elite duel soldiers who will be trying to take over any day now.”

Jean said, “You’re still going on about that. I believe this similar appearance implies some form of relation, and that therefore implies all three to be working together.”

Ryuichi said, “I’ve been to Xyz Dimension. I’ve seen the damage these duel soldiers caused with my own eyes. I’d rather not see that kind of damage happening here. The Pendulum users are trying to gather allies so they could stand a better chance against the invasion force.”

Jean waved Ryuichi out of the room and turned around. He didn’t want to say something that could imply that he was actually a part of Academia’s plans, acting as a spy, and trying to soften Synchro Dimension from within.

-=-=-

It was sunset when Tetsu finally managed to stumble upon Reiji and the Lancers.

Tetsu said, “Have any of you seen Ryuichi around here?”

Reiji answered, “I had a brief conversation with him about his new chief. Why?”

Tetsu said, “Some Hotaru Nakamura of the Tarantulas managed to beat me in a duel and steal my deck.”

Reiji suddenly seemed surprised.

Tetsu added, “She wants Ryuichi to meet her under some Trishula Bridge tomorrow night or else she’s selling my deck to the highest bidder the way she sells other stolen cards.”

A D-wheel then pulled up behind Tetsu.

Reiji asked, “Just what kind of strategy did she use?”

Tetsu explained, “She flooded my side of the field with tokens, then she used a level twelve Synchro monster and Battle Mania. I didn’t have life points to get through one attack, much less five.”

Ryuichi took off his helmet and said, “Did she use Double Tuning?”

Tetsu asked, “You remember her?”

Ryuichi said, “Hard to forget someone like that. She probably could have been a model, but she seems to enjoy her life of crime too much to throw it away.”

Tetsu asked, “Just what did you and her do together that made her so mad when I said I didn’t know her?”

Ryuichi looked at Reira momentarily and said, “I’d rather not talk about it in front of a child.”

Dennis then whistled, as if congratulating Ryuichi for what he accomplished.

Ryuichi shouted, “I let the ringleader behind a dangerous card stealing ring get away because I was too weak to refuse her womanly wiles. Even though I won the duel, she still managed to give me the slip.”

Tetsu said, “She wants to meet you under the Trishula Bridge tomorrow night, alone.”

Reiji commented, “It sounds like a trap.”

Dennis couldn’t help but blurt out, “Sounds like she’s after something else if you know what I mean.”

Reiji scolded, “Dennis! Are you forgetting that Reira is right beside me?”
Arc-V: Queen of the Tarantulas
LOCKDOWN TACTICS! And I bet you'd LOVE to know EXACTLY what Ryuichi and Hotaru did before, wouldn't you?

Anyway, let's just say for this chapter, Xyz decks getting Token Spammed can be painful. Your hand will become useless and you'll lose your deck. Hotaru loves to spam tokens, not just giving tokens to the opponents, but providing herself with tokens to use as synchro material. A few cards may prove easily recognizable, such as Revival Gift, Ground Collapse, and Ojama Trio. Ironically, tribute summon is actually the BEST course of action against the majority of these tokens she will hand you.

Bwaaaahabra by ChaosVincent1
Bwaaaahabra
I don't know what's more surprising: How little effort I put into making this or why nobody else ever thought of this before!

The Bwaaaahabra swarms around its target, shooting propane, and stinging with deadly propane accessories to cause blastblight. If you're too busy mining to worry about this monster, It's gonna kick yer ass! I swear, that hunter just ain't right.

Since I plan to make Hotaru play a key role in the story, and stick around longer than simply one chapter. I felt it would be smart to show off the cards she likes to use to squeeze out room for her opponent's monsters.
