Recap / Yu Gi Oh Arc V Ep 24 The Wings Of Rebellion Raid Raptors

Go To

Hokuto, Masumi and Yaiba face off against Shun Kurosaki (Shay) at last, engaging him in a three-on-one Battle Royale duel. Though they manage to wipe out Kurosaki's field and bring their ace monsters into play on their first turns, even their skills are no match for Kurosaki, who is able to block their damage and prevent defeat by using one of his destroyed traps in the graveyard, at a heavy price of all but 10 Life Points. On his next turn, he is able to overlay his three monsters in the Graveyard, summoning "Raidraptor - Rise Falcon" and uses its effect to absorb ATK from all enemy monsters, giving it over 16,000 ATK and letting it attack all of them for a triple One-Hit KO. Kurosaki leaves the scene, but is confronted by Reiji with a group of LID agents.


During the duel, Yuzu meets Yuto again, who explains Ruri (Lulu) is Kurosaki's little sister that they're trying to rescue from an enemy that uses Fusion Summon. Yuzu and Ruri look very much alike, which is why Kurosaki confused the two in their last encounter. Yuto also tells Yuzu his name at last.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Antagonist Title: Of a sort, as Raid Raptors is the card Kurosaki uses to Curb-Stomp Battle Hokuto, Masumi and Yaiba.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Kurosaki floors all three of the trio with his ace RR-Rise Falcon.
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: In the dub, Yuzu keeps shouting excuses after she's run after Masumi.
    Yuzu: You know, got laundry to mail, letters to wash!
  • “The Reason You Suck” Speech: Kurosaki gives one to the trio. It'd probably be more effective if they were who he thought they were.

  • Recruit Teenagers with Attitude: Justified, as the teenagers are only acting as bait because they're witnesses who would be able to recognize the culprit, their superiors track them the entire time to ensure their safety, and Yaiba's dialogue indicates that a more powerful team to capture Kurosaki was deployed the moment he revealed himself.
  • Stock Audio Clip: Rise Falcon's cry should be immediately familiar to viewers of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's; it's the same one used by Earthbound Immortal Aslla piscu.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Yuto and Kurosaki are willing to do anything to save Ruri, Kurosaki's sister and make the world a better place.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Yuzu calls Yuto on his desire to protect her, but allowing Masumi to be hurt.
  • When He Smiles: Yuto's smile reminds Yuzu of Yuya.
