Recap / Yu Gi Oh Arc V Ep 148 The Miracle Drawn By The Pendulum

Go To

Yuya was powerless before Reiji's Supreme Doom King. However, he then receives support from Yuto, Yugo and Yuri. Yuya then goes all out against Reiji.

Yuya’s Entertainment Dueling has evolved, and will involve the spectators, the monsters on the Field, as well as his opponent, Reiji himself. What awaits Yuya at the end of the Last Duel to make everyone smile?

This episode contains the following tropes:


  • All Your Powers Combined: Yuya shows the ability to switch between Fusion to Synchro to finally Xyz during his duel with Reiji.
  • And the Adventure Continues: While Yuya has saved the universe, his father makes a point of saying as a pro he still has a lot of work trying to keep everyone happy.
    Yusho: If you think this is the end, then you’re badly mistaken!
  • Bittersweet Ending: Zarc has been pacified and peace has been restored, but the Dragon Boys and Bracelet Girls are still fused together and Reira is still stuck as an infant.
  • Bookends: Yuya's first Duel against Reiji involves the latter summoning three Armageddons. Here, Reiji summons three Extra/Pendulum versions of Armageddon.
  • Call-Back:
    • The second OP of the series, "Burn!", returns and serves as the episode's ending theme.
    • The "Arc of Light" phrase in Yuya's Pendulum Summoning chant is brought up again:
      Yuya: Everyone! My partner, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, will become stronger thanks to the support of its companions! It’s a power intertwined by the Pendulum: the Arc of Light!

    • Remember the letter Yuya gave to Yuzu (through Tsukikage) back in Episode 73? Yuya's words DID happen.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Yusho's speech to Yuya can be summed up as "Are you badass enough to fight them all, Yuya!?":
    Yusho: Yuya! Now that you have passed the test, your real battle will now begin! As a Professional, do you have the resolve to keep fighting!?
    Yuya: Of course! I’ll keep bringing everyone smile through Dueling from now on too! And I’ll definitely become the Entertainment Duelist who will surpass Dad someday! The fun has just begun!
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Yuya's Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon and Odd-Eyes Wing Dragon.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Yuya's Scale 12 Entermate Five-Rainbow Magician. By its Pendulum Effect, if a player has five Set cards in their Spell/Trap Zones, the original ATK of all Monsters they control is doubled.

  • Flower Motifs: Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon's effect gives off this vibe, as lampshaded by Sayaka:
    Sayaka: It’s like a blooming flower!
  • The Gadfly: Reiji has some shades of this:
    Reiji: I’m sure Zarc is smiling together with Reira.
    Leo: Yes, and the world has finally becoming one again. Thanks to Yuya Sakaki's Duel.
    Reiji: Yuya’s Duel? *laughs*
  • Graceful Loser: Reiji takes his defeat with stride.
  • Grand Finale: This is the final episode of ARC-V. Yuya lampshades it:
    Yuya: This is it! The finale!
  • Heel–Face Turn: Zarc has finally given up on destroying the world as seen by Reira smiling again.
  • Power-up Full Color Change: Lampshaded by Asuka and Sora, in regards to Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon:
    Asuka: It looks so pure...
    Sora: Did he just purify Yuri’s dragon!?
  • Reset Button: Averted, despite the franchise loving this trope, there are lasting changes on the setting as a result of the series. Reira is stuck as an infant, the Dragon Boys and Bracelet Girls are now sharing one body for each group and Arc-V allows for a way between the four dimensions.
  • Ship Tease:
    • Yuya once again states that a main goal of his is saving Yuzu.
    • When the Bracelet Girls come back, we see each of the Dragon Boys smiling and their respective Bracelet Girl smiling back, this includes Yuri and Serena.
    • Yuya and Yuzu hold hands as Yuya welcomes her home as she agrees and states she's home.
  • So Proud of You: This is Jack's reaction to Yuya's newly summoned Odd-Eyes Wing Dragon:
    Jack: I can feel it, Yuya! The vigor of your life! THIS is your Dueling! Don’t look back and go forward in your own way!
  • Superior Successor: Yuya is this to Zarc. He holds Zarc's dream of entertaining everyone without losing his way like Zarc did.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Yuya brings out the Fusion/Pendulum Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon and the Synchro/Pendulum Odd-Eyes Wing Dragon.
  • Trailers Always Spoil: The episode preview unveils Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon and Odd-Eyes Wing Dragon.
  • Wham Line:
    Yuya: Welcome home, Yuzu.
    Yuzu: I'm back, Yuya.
  • Wham Shot:
    • Yuya Summoning Odd-Eyes Venom, Odd-Eyes Wing, and Odd-Eyes Rebellion.
    • Reira slowly regaining her smile. By the end of the Duel, she is laughing.
    • The return of Yuzu.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?:
    • After the events of Episode 92, Barrett is never seen again.
    • Roget is also never heard from after the conclusion of the Synchro Dimension arc, though it could be assumed that he's in the void between his dimensions, following his plan to trap the cast there. Or dead.

How well does it match the trope?
