* UnexpectedCharacter: Zigzagged with Enlightenment Paladin. While people didn't expect Yuya's first synchro monster to be one related to the ''Magicians'', its appearance in the anime wasn't entirely unexpected due to it being the cover card for a main series booster pack, as such cards have always made an appearance in the anime since [[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]].[[note]]With the sole exception being Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode who appeared in a special non-canon episode.[[/note]]

* WhamEpisode: Yuya ''Synchro Summons''. He has finally completed all the summoning methods, and he didn't even need to go Berserk to do so.



* WhamShot: InUniverse. Yuya summoning Enlightenment Paladin shocks just about everyone, and causes [[VillainTakesAnInterest Roget]] to wonder how he can use Yuya to his advantage. Downplayed in real life as Enlightenment Paladin's summoning was spoiled both by the opening and its official release.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfSymbolism: Enlightenment Paladin represents the Human Realm, which is based on passion, desire, doubt, and pride. A human rebirth is in fact considered to be by far the most advantageous of all possible rebirths in samsara because it is the samsaric realm from which one can directly attain and ensure enlightenment either in the present or future birth. This is because of the unique possibilities that it offers. A human rebirth is considered to have tremendous potential when used correctly, however several humans would usually waste their mortal lifetime in materialistic pursuits, and end up reinforcing our unhelpful emotions, thoughts, and actions. Because of this, it is almost always the case that one descends to a lower rebirth after a human life, rather than immediately going on to another human birth.

Trusting in Sora's message that Yuzu is fine, Yuya focuses on his duel with Shinji. Shinji revives Azusa the Spirit Bow and reveals it's a Tuner as well as a Synchro Monster, and uses it to Tune with his three Pin the Hit to summon the Level 8 "Bee Force - Hama the Evil-Crushing Bow." Shinji uses Hama to destroy Yuya's Entermate Silver Claw and Timesword Magician, taking Yuya down to 900 life points. Shinji continues to call out for the Commons to begin a revolution, but Yuya insists there's another way. While the Executive Council begins to fear a riot, Jean-Michael Roger is confident the Commons lack the bite to go with their bark.

* VillainHasAPoint: While almost everyone else fears a Commons uprising as Shinji calls for revolution, Jean-Michael Roger is confident they won't do a thing, because they're all talk and no action, and that's why Security has been able to oppress them for so many years without incident. He's not fully wrong, especially since a running theme of the season is hesitance to take action versus confidence in doing what must be done.

* InformedAttribute: Yuya claims it was Tuning Magician's effect to damage him and heal Shinji that won him the duel, but analysis of the duel indicates its effect actually didn't do much. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Their life points were 3400 to 900. This difference of 2500 would give Enlightenment Paladin 4050 ATK when boosted by Gap Power, still enough to destroy Hama the Evil-Crushing Bow and win the duel. Tuning Magician's effect only helped because Yuya had previously used the effect of "Performapal Extra Shooter" to inflict effect damage to Shinji, which is both a poor play on his part, and a poor show on the behalf of the writers, when the game-ending combo relies on Shinji having a lot more life points than him.[[/labelnote]]


* NotTheIntendedUse: Yuya manages to use Tuning Magician's detrimental effect to his advantage this episode. Namely, increase the LP gap between him and Shinji enough so gap power could power up Enlightenment Paladin enough to destroy Shinji's ''4000 ATK'' monster. Yuya makes a point out of how Tuning Magician, despite everyone thinking it was useless, was what allowed him to win the duel.
