Recap / Yu Gi Oh Arc V Ep 34 Chimeric Beast VS The Evolving Falcon

Go To

Kurosaki vs Sora continues. Kurosaki keeps countering Sora's moves and begins to Rank Up his Xyz monsters. The crowd's delight at Sora's fluffy Fluffal monsters begins to turn to horror as Sora's dueling tactics grow more desperate, and the missile attacks of Kurosaki's Raidraptors turn the Action Field into a fiery warzone.

Sora grows increasingly enraged and mockingly reveals Kurosaki is right; Sora's people did attack Kurosaki's home, and they had fun doing it, because to Sora and his people, scum Xyz users like Kurosaki are just prey to be hunted. Sora resorts to fusing all his Death-Toy/Frightfur monsters into "Frightfur: Mad Chimera," and he tries to deal the final blow, but Kurosaki again counters and ranks up his monster once again to win the duel. In the aftermath, a collapsing Action Field building falls on Sora, injuring him.


This episode contains examples of:

  • Apocalypse How: The Action Field becomes a reenactment of a Class 0 example, although the actual event was something much higher on the scale.
  • Break the Haughty: As Sora begins losing.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Sora, a previously friendly and cute little kid, reveals an extreme sadistic side and a stone-cold desire to kill Xyz users. The duel that follows is so violent and scary that the entire audience is shaken when it ends. This episode is the first sign the series is about to get dark, and Nothing Is the Same Anymore from this point on.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: The main cast learns that Sora is one.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Most of Sora's monsters apply, but none more so than the titanic "Frightfur: Mad Chimera".
  • Harmful to Minors: The children viewing the duel are justifiably freaked by what happens.

  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Even the bystanders notice that Sora is acting weird.
  • The Reveal: Sora's true, malevolent personality truly comes out this episode, right at the point where he bites through his lollipop.
  • Sore Loser: Sora does not take losing to an Xyz duelist well; he isn't sealed, but that is Cruel Mercy on Kurosaki's part.
  • Stunned Silence: After the duel.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Sora grows increasingly unhinged as his efforts to beat Kurosaki fall short, revealing the Ax-Crazy lunatic hiding beneath that smug and smiling exterior.
  • Wham Episode: The duel itself is explosive, with multiple tit-for-tat situations, reversals, and monsters that are genuinely intimidating. But more than that, this episode confirms that not only is Sora from the Fusion Dimension, but he and his friends actively hunt down Xyz duelists for fun, and that they're two dimensions are bitterly at war.

How well does it match the trope?
