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.

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.

Kyoshiro burst into Leo Akaba’s office, exhausted from all the running he had to go through to reach that point. He said, “Professor. I just got some important news from Standard. Your son is assembling a strike force to take us on directly. Their current members have already made their way to Synchro Dimension in hopes of building their strength and their numbers.”

Leo, agitated, said, “Tell me something I don’t already know.”

Kyoshiro asked, “What?”

Leo continued, “Dennis was able to relay the needed information to Sophia inconspicuously before she fled. Then, one of our spies in Synchro Dimension managed to discover them snooping around, as well as Yuzu Hiragi.”

Yuri added, “Going in personally would apparently be walking right into a trap. I’m the best duelist in this entire dimension. I should be able to handle those minor roadblocks that you can’t break.”

Someone else then calmly walked into the office, before standing still. He said, “You wished to speak to me, professor.”

Leo said, “I need to send someone capable of disrupting Accel Synchro summoning. I believe you are capable of taking this particular duelist down fast enough that he won’t have time to perform this technique. Are you ready for this mission, Yang.”

Yang sighed, “I suppose I can leave the unwitting pawns from Standard alone for a little while to focus on this matter.”

-=-=-

Tsukikage suddenly dropped down onto a quiet back-alley with Reira tucked under his arm.

Tsukikage mumbled, “They should be gone by now. If there was more time, I would have been able to save a few more as well.”

Reira, not exactly too familiar with Tsukikage, began to flail about.

Reiji asked, “Did you find any of the others?”

Tsukikage set Reira down, who ran over to Reiji as fast as he could. Tsukikage said, “As of right now, the other Lancers have all been thrown in jail.”

Reiji said, “Then we’ll have to explain ourselves when their trial comes around.”

Ryuichi shook his head, “It’s not that simple. The new chief somehow managed to do away with the court system completely. Supposedly it was a money-saving move so they could focus more on actual security work, but it was really just an excuse to let them throw people from Commons in jail whenever they want, whether or not they did anything bad. They would be lucky to get even a kangaroo court.”

Reiji said, “So we need a plan to get them out.”

Tsukikage mentioned, “They just held a mass arrest at an underground riding duel arena. Chances are, the prison is near capacity, if not already overcrowded.”

Reiji said, “So, we just have to bring them some very dangerous criminals for an exchange. If they refuse, we drop the criminals off in Tops and say the prison refused them. It should cause enough uproar to threaten your chief’s job security.”

-=-=-

Yang walked past a small restaurant in Tops. He slowly made his way to a Security officer standing on the street corner and said, “I’ll be taking your helmet.”

The Security officer said, “You’re trying to steal from Security. Just what do you think you’re trying to do here?”

Yang then punched the Security officer in the stomach and tripped him. In one swift movement, he managed to take the helmet off the officer as he fell to the ground. He then put on the helmet and approached the officer’s D-Wheel.

A voice came over the helmet. “Just what, exactly, is your plan?”

Yang mumbled, “I’m here to remove an unpredictable element from our plans. It’s a win-win situation. If I defeat my target, we won’t have to deal with him anymore. If my target wins, he’ll arrest me, putting me in a position to retrieve Serena for the Professor.”

-=-=-

Chief Roger grinned in his office. He said, “Send Chaser 264 after this one. We need someone capable of detaining a criminal that dangerous.”

-=-=-

Ryuichi said over his helmet, “Really, you flat-out do the opposite of what I recommended, then expect me to chase after some dangerous criminal for you?” All the while, he nodded towards Reiji and Tsukikage.

Chief Roger responded, “He attacked a chaser in broad daylight and stole his D-Wheel, with several reliable witnesses from Tops. We need you to stop him immediately.”

Ryuichi sighed, “All right. If he’s that dangerous, but your recent raids should have the prison a little beyond capacity.”

Chief Roger shrugged, “Bring him to the prison first, and we’ll discuss the overcrowding situation once he’s detained.”

After the call ended, Ryuichi said, “Criminals from this dimension wouldn’t have the guts to attack someone from Security up in Tops.”

Reiji said, “I’ll go look for more dangerous criminals to bring you down here. Tsukikage, you’re with me. And if things look like they’re about to get too messy, I want you to bring Reira to safety.”

Tsukikage nodded, “You have my word.”

Ryuichi got back onto his D-wheel and branched away from the rest of the group. The other three left in a different dimension, just in case.

-=-=-

Chief Roger grinned. If they were planning to expose him, discussing a plan to do so wouldn’t be a smart move. He then looked to the group of three on foot, and in particular to Reira. He was sure he saw Reira’s face before. The cold, calculating grin faded, to a frown of confusion, as if he knew the answer, but his brain simply couldn’t piece it together at the moment.

-=-=-

Ryuichi’s D-wheel began to catch up to Yang, sirens blazing. Yang grinned and responded by speeding his stolen D-wheel up.

Yang said, “It’ll take more than that to catch me!”

Ryuichi responded, “Speed World NEO! SET!”

A signal suddenly caused a reaction in the D-wheel that Yang had stolen. Street signs lit up, warning drivers to adjust their routes for the riding duel.

As the two D-wheels evened out in positioning, both were directed onto a dueling route.

Yang said, “As a show of good sport, I think I’ll let you make the first move.”

Ryuichi said, “I start by placing Archer of the Dragonstone and Dancer of the Dragonstone in the scales. Dancer’s effect activates, meaning both of us can draw. Next, I summon Swordsman of the Dragonstone. Using my Swordsman’s effect, I special Summon Druid of the Dragonstone in defense mode, and you can draw. When my opponent draws while Druid of the Dragonstone is on the field, I get one Druid Token. Turn end!”

Yang said, “Simple enough. I summon Dark Impulse Wyvern. If I control Dark Impulse Wyvern, I can special summon Light Impulse Wyvern to my opponent’s side of the field. However, when summoned by its own effect, Light Impulse Wyvern can’t inflict battle damage to its opponent, and returns to its owner’s hand during the end phase. Dark Impulse Dragon, attack Light Impulse Dragon!”

A shadowy ghost dragon shot a sphere of darkness at a dragon seemingly made of light. The dark dragon was then destroyed in the counterattack, however, Yang didn’t take the 1000 damage he otherwise would have taken.

Yang continued, “When Dark Impulse Wyvern is destroyed as a result of battle, I can banish one card my opponent controls. I choose Light Impulse Wyvern.”

Ryuichi said, “Wait, you won’t get it back during the end phase if you do that.”

Yang said, “The monster banished by Dark Impulse Wyvern returns to its owner’s hand during my next Standby Phase. It’s not really too important of a difference. Also, since Light Impulse Wyvern was banished, I can activate its effect to destroy all monsters on my opponent’s side of the field. I leave one face-down card and end my turn.”

Ryuichi said, “With my Scale 1 Archer of the Dragonstone and my Scale 7 Dancer of the Dragonstone... PENDULUM SUMMON! Barbarian of the Dragonstone and Rogue of the Dragonstone. Next, I tune my level five Barbarian of the Dragonstone with my level three Rogue of the Dragonstone. Furious power, mixed with a powerful soul! SYNCHRO SUMMON! BERSERKER OF THE DRAGONSTONE!”

Rogue of the Dragonstone split into three tuner circles. As Barbarian passed through, five stars appeared and aligned. A pillar of light surged forth, revealing Berserker of the Dragonstone.

Ryuichi continued, “Berserker’s effect! I seal the one card in your back row for the rest of this turn, then, the player controlling that card draws. NOW! DIRECT ATTACK!!!”

Berserker of the Dragonstone swung a hammer at Yang, dropping his life points to 5000 in one hit.

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

Yang laughed, “My turn! DRAW! During my Standby Phase, Light Impulse Wyvern returns to my hand.”

Ryuichi said, “I activate Curse of the Ancient Warriors!”

Yang responded, “I play Mystical Space Typhoon, destroying that other card you left face-down.”

Ryuichi was astonished. Scrap-Iron Scarecrow was typically one of his key cards as far as stopping an opponent’s attack.

Yang said, “Now, I summon Imitation Wyvern.  Using its effect, I can banish a Wyrm-Type monster from my grave to have Imitation Wyvern take on that monster’s name. Next, I play Polymerization to fuse Light Impulse Wyvern from my hand with Imitation Wyvern on the field. FUSION SUMMON! Chaos Impulse Wyvern!”

Ryuichi grinned, “That’s still not strong enough.”

Yang said, “When I control a Wyrm-Type Fusion monster and my opponent controls a stronger monster, I can Special Summon Cold Impulse Wyvern from my hand in attack mode. Now, Chaos Impulse Wyvern’s effect! I choose to switch control of Cold Impulse Wyvern and Berserker of the Dragonstone until the end phase. Chaos Impulse Wyvern! Attack Cold Impulse Wyvern!”

Chaos Impulse Wyvern charged up a vicious attack, before unleashing a black burst of energy upon Cold Impulse Wyvern, destroying it instantly. As the monster with 0 Attack power was destroyed, Ryuichi’s life points fell to 5100.

Yang added, “Also, whenever Chaos Impulse Wyvern destroys a Wyrm-Type monster as a result of battle, I can destroy two cards my opponent controls. I choose Dancer of the Dragonstone and Curse of the Ancient Warriors. Now, for the sheer irony, I’ll make your own Berserker attack you directly!”

Berserker of the Dragonstone lunged forth, striking Ryuichi with his hammer. Ryuichi’s D-wheel staggered momentarily as his life points dropped to 2100.

Yang laughed, “I’ll throw in another face-down card and end my turn.”

Ryuichi said, “My turn! DRAW! I just got one card that practically guarantees I’ll win this turn. You have three cards in your hand right now, so I’d say I can finish you off in only one attack! And I won’t even need Accel Synchro.”

Yang gasped, “WITHOUT ACCEL SYNCHRO!?”

Ryuichi said, “I place my Scale four Healer of the Dragonstone in the scales. Now, Archer’s Pendulum Effect. I can lower the attack power of one monster you control to 0, but then you get to draw. Healer of the Dragonstone follows up by letting me draw two cards whenever you draw by the effect of a Dragonstone card. Barbarian of the Dragonstone seals away your new face-down card for this turn and gives you another draw. Healer follows up with two more for me. Now! PENDULUM SUMMON! From my hand, Sorcerer of the Dragonstone and from my Extra Deck, Dancer of the Dragonstone! Now, you’ll get to see Dancer’s monster effect. When she’s pendulum summoned from the Extra Deck, I can inflict 500 damage for each card in my opponent’s hand. You have five.”

Dancer of the Dragonstone spun around, causing a magic burst to emerge from her scarf and hit Yang, taking half of his life points.

Ryuichi said, “Any time a Spellcaster-type Dragonstone monster is special summoned, I can special summon Rogue of the Dragonstone from my graveyard, and give you a draw.”

Immediately after Rogue of the Dragonstone reappeared, she instantly ran over and wrapped her arms around Sorcerer of the Dragonstone, who barely even reacted.

Ryuichi continued, “Healer follows up by giving me two more draws. Now, I tune my level three Dancer of the Dragonstone with my level three Rogue of the Dragonstone. SYNCHRO SUMMON! Templar of the Dragonstone! Templar attacks Chaos Impulse Wyvern!”

Yang said, “Chaos Impulse Wyvern has 2900 attack points!”

Ryuichi said, “Are you forgetting about what my Archer did?”

Templar of the Dragonstone swung his sword, cutting fiercely at the ghostly dragon. As Chaos Impulse Wyvern was destroyed, Yang’s life points fell to 0.

Ryuichi said, “Jamming the duel disk’s retreat function. Time to proceed with the arrest.”

As Yang was loaded into the prison transport, Ryuichi looked to the sky, seeing a red helicopter overhead. Ryuichi then made extra sure to confiscate Yang’s duel disk.

Ryuichi told the driver, “I’m bringing this duel disk back to HQ. Since it belonged to someone this dangerous, only the chief will be able to retrieve it once it’s locked away.”

As the prisoner transport continued on, Ryuichi branched away for Security HQ. Any fusion spy brazen enough to try going after the transport would still risk exposure. And with Yang’s duel disk itself set to be locked away with a clearance level that high, Yang couldn’t get away without help from Chief Roger himself.

The next morning, Tetsu teleported into Synchro Dimension. The area looked scary, when a man in a white uniform ran up to him.

The Security officer said, “Didn’t you hear? There was a big breakout last night at the facility! Apparently, that Fusion user you caught slipped away along with those Pendulum Users.”

Tetsu said, “What?”

The officer added, “Chief has us looking for the Pendulum users, but that Fusion user merely took advantage of the chaos to slip away. The strangest part is we caught footage of him vanishing into thin air.”
Arc-V: Dueling in the Streets!
RIDING DUEL! ACCELERATION!!!

I thought it would be nice to have a riding duel here. Yang's strategy amounts to control shenanigans and combo plays. Heck, any time you hand a monster to your opponent, you fully expect to take advantage from it. Especially important to the strategy is Light Impulse Wyvern, who can't easily be searched and can be used as a great attack target for either Imitation Wyvern or Dark Impulse Wyvern. Chaos Impulse Wyvern is the coup de grais, basically allowing for a temporary creature swap so you can set some 0 ATK monster on your opponent's side of the field as an attack target while the monster you took attacks it.

Ryuichi reported in and said, “I’m back from Standard. You needed me to question Yugo.”

Jean-Michael Roger looked across the room and said, “The cowboy returns. I only wanted you to find Yugo and bring him back here. I didn’t need you to cross dimensions looking for some mysterious lookalike you heard about.”

Ryuichi said, “I’ve seen at least two lookalikes, but we can only charge one with kidnapping.”

Chief Roger replied, “Why do you keep insisting on chasing criminals for crimes that take place in Commons. We only answer to the people of Tops.”

Ryuichi said, “I’ve seen some serious crimes down in commons. I just can’t turn a blind eye to crimes like that.”

Chief Roger said, “If we waste resources trying to protect Commons, some of these scoundrels will find their way into Tops. Isn’t that what my predecessor had to learn the hard way? We lost funding and the previous chief had gone into hiding to protect himself from the shame.”

Ryuichi said, “There are signs that duel soldiers from Fusion Dimension could be on their way back. One of their targets is now in this dimension.”

Chief Roger said, “That still doesn’t clear your little friend and his accomplice for sneaking into a Tops restricted area and inflicting bodily harm to residents.”

Ryuichi said, “What?”

Chief Roger added, “And you missed out on seeing his duel against Chaser 227.”

Ryuichi mumbled, “That show-off?”

Chief Roger said, “Are you surprised. He wanted to practice with you to train for the Friendship Cup, but now he gets caught sneaking into places where he isn’t supposed to be. Meanwhile, you seem to think your ability to accel synchro summon puts you outside the chain of command.”

Ryuichi turned around and took a deep breath. “Isn’t it also funny that you became head of Security days after a few others and I mastered accel synchro, and the previous chief just mysteriously vanished? I never even met you until you suddenly told us that you were the new chief.”

Chief Roger mumbled, “I’ll keep a note of that.”

Ryuichi began to walk out of the office, then turned around and said, “Something else that’s important here... Reiji Akaba could prove to be an important ally against the invasion. Don’t do anything to sabotage that the way you sabotaged our relationship with Commons.”

The chief simply grinned as Ryuichi finally left his office. He then moved a queen on his board, before saying, “We’re already in a number of key roles, Chaser 264. Academia only withdrew the forces associated with brute force. I suppose once we capture Yugo and his accomplice, I can simply hand the accomplice over to Yuri.”

The layout of the board showed the white king seemingly stuck in a checkmate, only for Jean-Michael Roger to move a white knight to capture the queen.

He continued, “However, thanks to Accel Synchro, Chaser 264 could prove too much of a wild card. Sending Yuri right now would be leading him into a trap.”

-=-=-

Down in Commons, Ryuichi was riding his D-wheel, continuing on until he was stopped by a group of thugs.

One thug said, “Well, well. It looks like someone from Security is lost and alone down in Commons.”

Another one added, “It looks like we’ll have to show you what happens to stray chasers who enter our turf.”

Ryuichi asked, “Have you seen anyone unusual showing up recently?”

The third thug laughed, “Oh? If you want us to talk, you’ll have to beat all three of us in a duel!”

Thug: 8000
Thug: 8000
Thug: 8000
Ryuichi: 8000

Nakajima asked, “The Lancers have all left for Synchro Dimension. Why are you still here?”

Tetsu answered, “A professional duelist from Standard was attacked recently by a Fusion soldier. The only people to teleport across dimensions since then were Reiji and the Lancers. That means the culprit is still out there.”

Nakajima shouted, “WHAT?”

Tetsu added, “I found the site of the duel before Reiji left. And it was only this morning I got my first major clue. A kid gave it to me because there was no way for Junichi Kawajima to sign it.” Tetsu pulled out a card and showed it to Nakajima.

Nakajima looked at the card Tetsu had. It was just a sheer testament to their strength that they could take down a professional duelist.

Tetsu continued, “Considering what we saw yesterday, it’s probably that Kyoshiro guy. The problem is that Himika Akaba won’t let me use that monitoring room to track him down.”

Nakajima adjusted his shades and cleared his throat, “I could find him for you and lead you right to him from the monitoring room.” It was clear, though, that even he seemed scared for Tetsu’s chances.

Tetsu said, “I’m counting on you, and so is the kid who gave me that card.”

Tetsu then turned and left while Nakajima began walking towards the monitoring room.

-=-=-

Kyoshiro stood impatiently, as if he was waiting for someone. He knew Sophie fled after her loss to Tetsu and being questioned by Ryuichi immediately afterwards. However, he was still confident that his contact would be meeting him here.

“Who would have thought you would go right back to the same place.”

Kyoshiro turned to find Tetsu standing a few feet away.

Tetsu continued, “I was also promised an action field to keep the damage to a minimum.”

-=-=-

Nakajima said, “Action Field set! Future City - Heartland!”

-=-=-

Tetsu suddenly turned to see an action field forming around himself and Kyoshiro. However, the Action Field’s stunning resemblance to Heartland only seemed to irritate him. He knew this was just created by solid vision, but he still didn’t like having to watch his hometown face damage all over again.

Kyoshiro said, “Well this is something. I wasn’t sent with the forces that went to Xyz Dimension, so it’s definitely amusing to see what that dimension once looked like. It’s about time I took down one of you Xyz scum.”

“DUEL!!”

Tetsu: 8000
Kyoshiro: 8000

Kyoshiro declared, “I’ll start! I summon Socrat Guardian in attack mode. Then, I use Socrat Guardian’s effect. Once per turn, I can search my deck for a copy of Amethyst Temple, and add it to my hand. Then, I send the top card of my deck to the grave. ACTIVATE! AMETHYST TEMPLE!”

Tetsu laughed, “I was hoping you would use that card.”

Kyoshiro said, “With Amethyst Temple’s effect, I fuse Socrat Guardian with Monolith of Dusk from my hand. FUSION SUMMON! Socratus Embodiment of Hurricanes! Monolith of Dusk’s effect activates. DRAW! Now I leave one card face-down and end my turn.”

Tetsu said, “I place Xyber Sentry Omega in the Pendulum Scales!”

Kyoshiro laughed, “I banish one card from my graveyard. I can negate the activation of any spell or trap card and send that card to the bottom of the owner’s deck. Since Pendulum monsters count as spell cards when used in that way, it’s only a logical solution to hold off your Pendulum Summon.”

Tetsu said, “I activate Xyber-Break, sending Xyber Tri-pike to my graveyard from my deck. I summon Xyber Brigadier, and equip it with Tri-Pike! Brigadier’s secondary effect: I pay 500 life points and destroy the equipped Tri-Pike to bring Xyber Spy Theta. Now! I place Xyber Spy Theta and Xyber Lady Epsilon in the scales. PENDULUM SUMMON! XYBER SOLDIER ALPHA!”

Kyoshiro shouted, “Not on my watch! I activate Paradox Fusion, banishing my Embodiment of Hurricanes to negate your Pendulum Summon and destroy that monster! Because it never successfully made the field, it still goes to the graveyard.”

Tetsu said, “Xyber Brigadier attacks directly!”

Kyoshiro stood back and allowed himself to be hit by the attack. As the attack hit, his life points fell to 6700.

Tetsu declared, “That ends my turn!”

-=-=-

One thug duelist shouted, “Scrap Dragon’s effect activates! I destroy my Scrap Goblin and your Awakened Dragon Hero!”

Ryuichi shouted, “Awakened Dragon Hero’s effect! I negate your Scrap Dragon’s effect and destroy it. Then, you draw a card. This triggers my Barbarian’s Pendulum Effect, destroying your Goblin anyway!”

The thug responded, “I use my Scrap Dragon’s other effect to Special Summon Scrap Golem from my graveyard. Using Scrap Golem’s effect, I Special Summon Scrap Beast from my Graveyard. SYNCHRO SUMMON! SCRAP TWIN DRAGON! NOW, I destroy my face-down card to return Awakened Dragon Hero and that Barbarian to your hand!”

Ryuichi shouted, “Didn’t you learn last time? Awakened Dragon Hero negates your Scrap Twin Dragon’s effect and destroys it, you draw and Barbarian can destroy your face-down card.”

Awakened Dragon Hero now stood with 4400 Attack power. As the mighty dragon spread its wings, it roared to proclaim its presence.

The thug knew each time he tried, he ended up losing more cards than he gained. He then said, “Scrap Twin Dragon’s effect special summons Scrap Goblin in defense mode. Then, I leave two face-down cards.”

Ryuichi said, “Awakened Dragon Hero’s power returns to normal.”

The other two said, “Don’t overdo it. You’re the last one of us in this duel.”

Ryuichi shouted, “My turn! DRAW! I place my Scale 7 Dancer of the Dragonstone in the scales. Her pendulum effect activates instantly, allowing both of us to draw a card. Barbarian then takes the opportunity to destroy Scrap Goblin, and my Awakened Dragon Hero’s attack power rises again. NOW! PENDULUM SUMMON! From my extra deck, the first copy of Barbarian of the Dragonstone. And from my hand, Rogue of the Dragonstone. I tune my level five Barbarian of the Dragonstone with my level three Rogue of the Dragonstone! SYNCHRO SUMMON! LEVEL EIGHT! BERSERKER OF THE DRAGONSTONE! Berserker’s effect! I choose one spell or trap card on the field. Until the end of the turn, it can’t be activated, and a face-up card would have its effect negated, but the owner gets to draw. I choose your face-down card. The Barbarian in my scales destroys the other one.”

The last remaining thug duelist shouted, “WHAT?”

Ryuichi shouted, “AWAKENED DRAGON HERO! ATTACK DIRECTLY!!!”

Awakened Dragon Hero fired a ferocious blast at the thug duelist. Knocking him off his D-wheel as his life points fell to 0.

Ryuichi said, “Now, tell me what’s really going on. I remember all three of you from when I went after the Tarantulas, and the Tarantulas were the first to encounter the invaders last time they were here.”

The third thug said, “It’s all a big cover-up. Some of your buddies promised us protection for anything we did down in Commons so long as we play along. The extra damage to the south end of Commons was written off as a gang war between the Scorpions and the Tarantulas.”

Ryuichi said, “Did all of the Tarantulas agree to this?”

The first thug said, “No. The boss absolutely refused to play along with Security, and flat out told us that anyone who went along with this was out of the gang, so we branched off on our own.”

Suddenly, clapping could be heard from behind Ryuichi.

Ryuichi turned around to see Reiji Akaba standing right behind him.

Reiji said, “So, that’s the secret to your Accel Synchro Summon. It just takes a mastery of some Clear Mind.”

Ryuichi said, “Someone who can’t let go of his negativity, even momentarily, can never master this technique. As you can see, the rest of Security has gotten a little corrupt after a change at the helm, and I’ve been branded a cowboy because I still choose to operate by the previous chief’s example. I believe that the truly guilty are the only ones who should face punishment.”

The three thugs then laughed, “Why don’t you say it when our former boss gets here. Speaking of which”

All three hopped onto their motorcycles and rode away. Around the same time, a woman on a D-wheel simply blazed past Ryuichi and Reiji.

Reiji said, “Aren’t you going to go after those criminals?”

Ryuichi said, “They’d get let out on some technicality if I arrested them. The chief gave them immunity in exchange for playing along with his cover-up. The damage Fusion Dimension did end up causing was written off as being caused by criminal duelists in a gang war, a hasty cover-up that was used as an excuse to actively oppress the people of Commons. Knowing our previous chief, he probably went out there to try defending the city instead of hiding behind his desk.”

Reiji adjusted his glasses, “I see. If that’s true, then the duel soldiers would have turned him into a card. Also, there’s a small chance that your new chief could be associated with Fusion, trying to create enough unrest to soften the city up for their return. I would need to get more intel before we point fingers yet.”

A glare from Tops crossed over Ryuichi’s helmet. He said, “That could be... everyone else in Security suddenly seems intent on arresting the Lancers, even though I warned them that it would just make issues worse when Academia decides to launch their next wave.”

Reiji said, “One way to check would be to challenge your new chief to a duel and let me analyze the summoning energy output. If his Synchro Summoning energy is at best on par with LDS students, we will know for sure that he’s not from Synchro Dimension.”

“He might not go for that.” Ryuichi responded, “He knows he would be playing right into our hands by performing sub-par Synchro Summons or showing that he could use Fusion Summon.”

-=-=-

One assistant said, “Chaser 264 recently used Pendulum Summon against three protected individuals.”

Chief Roger said, “So he is siding with the Pendulum users after all.”

Another assistant added, “He demonstrated the ability to use Pendulum Summon to support his Synchro Summoning and even Accel Synchro.”

Chief Roger turned around, and wondered to himself. If Ryuichi could improve his Accel Synchro potential with the help of Pendulum, then Academia’s plans would receive another major blow. In addition, for all he was aware, Dennis may also have defected to side with Reiji Akaba.

-=-=-

Kyoshiro said, “Now, the banishing effect of Paradox Fusion wears off. My Embodiment of Hurricanes returns to the field alongside Embodiment of Lightning. I can stop you from preparing a Pendulum Summon and I’ll still have my Embodiment of Lightning to take down any strong monster you think you can summon.”

Tetsu said, “My turn! DRAW! I place Xyber Soldier Alpha in the Pendulum Scale!”

Kyoshiro declared, “I banish one card from my graveyard to negate your card’s activation and send it to the bottom of your deck!”

Tetsu added, “Did you forget about something? Xyber Lady Epsilon’s Pendulum Effect! I can add the other copy of Xyber Soldier Alpha from my graveyard to my hand. ACTIVATE! Now, PENDULUM SUMMON! Xyber Spy Theta from my Extra Deck and Xyber Lanzik from my hand.”

Kyoshiro mumbled to himself, “He must have drawn those Pendulum cards with Xyber Overload last turn. Either way, taking down two monsters will be tricky.”

Tetsu said, “Xyber Spy Theta’s monster effect! I equip Xyber Tri-pike from my graveyard. Then, I Special Summon Tri-Pike from my spell and trap card zone. Using my level four Xyber Tri-Pike and Xyber Spy Theta, I build the overlay network! XYZ SUMMON! Xybertech Sentry. I could take out both of your monsters with Xybertech Sentry alone, but I need to get to Synchro Dimension, where all the action is. XYZ CHANGE!!! Over-Xybertech Sentry!!”

Kyoshiro said, “So, it looks like your Soldier isn’t the only one capable of taking on Over-Xybertech power.”

Tetsu said, “I use one overlay unit to equip Bladran from my grave to Over-Xybertech Sentry. Now! UNION OVERLOAD BURST! By banishing the Union monster equipped to Over-Xybertech Sentry, I can destroy all monsters my opponent controls.”

Over-Xybertech Soldier charged a massive burst of energy into Xyber Bladran before throwing it at the two Embidiments before him. Suddenly, Kyoshiro looked to see his field left wide open.”

Kyoshiro shouted, “Impossible!”

Tetsu added, “Now, I equip Lanzik to Over-Xybertech Soldier. DIRECT ATTACK!”

Xybertech Sentry lunged at Kyoshiro, taking his life points from 3800 to 1600.

Tetsu added, “Now! With Lanzik’s equip effect, the second attack!”

Xybertech Sentry spun Lanzik’s spear form around, knocking Kyoshiro to the ground. As Kyoshiro’s life points dropped to 0, he began to vanish.

Kyoshiro said, “Thanks for feeding me some useful information. We left a few spies behind in Synchro Dimension as well. If they did their job, we should be able to retrieve Serena, as well as Yuzu Hiragi. I would prefer to avoid the Accel Synchro users, but that’s where our targets are hiding out.”

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.

Tablet of Token Souls

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.
