Minami Takahashi (young)
In Link VRAINS, Revolver has two avatar forms. His first form is a tan-skinned man with yellow eyes without irises or pupils, and dark crimson hair and red highlights. His ears are pierced with Egyptian-style earrings with a blue diamond and a gold bullet "token". Revolver wears a mask with yellow glass and a white casing with a diamond-shaped pattern of white dots with red centers, linked together by a white circle that surrounds a white dot in the center of Revolver's forehead that suggests the barrel of a gun. The visor of his mask can be covered with a dark lens to protect him from bright lights. Revolver wears a white jumpsuit with a black elongated "T" shape tracing to the bottom of his chest, red ovals overlaying black ovals on the sides of the torso, and a v-shaped line of green where a belt would be. He wears a white trench coat lined with green with golden lines patterning both the inside and the outside of the coat. The sleeves are green white shoulder-pads and red diagonal bands on the bicep, making it unclear whether or not they are part of the jumpsuit or the coat. Revolver also wears a small white mantle with a black line tracing around the middle, and a green ornament attached at the front on either side of his neck and at the back by red gems. Revolver wears white-elbow length gloves with red diamond shapes on his forearm, and black boots with green heels and red patterns on the front that may be part of his jumpsuit.
His second avatar form resembles the first one with several alterations: he retains his fair skin and blue eyes, his maroon hair is now grey, and the red highlights on the sides, which are now more pronounced, have a shade of pink roots. The shaped of his mask now appears more rhombus-like, the glass now recedes up to his nose, and the forehead has a plate with the four dots spread out. The trench coat has a black color scheme on the body, a black stripe among the outer borders, the black stripe on the upper section has been removed, and the lower exterior sports a lime stripe and patter. The ornament around his neck is now lime, has a more square-like structure, and the red gems have been replaced with small, rectangular red lights. His sleeves are now black with a lime exterior, and the red diamond pattern on the forearms are more wider. His suit is more white, he wears a black belt with a gold buckle, which has a bullet carved on each sides, a red bullet-shaped light at the center, and a wide red diamond pattern on each outer thigh exterior of the pants. his black boots retained the red pattern, but now sports a lime border above the red patterns and lime heels.
In real life, Revolver is a tall young, fair skin man with blue eyes and has white hair that spikes backwards at the sides, with purple highlights. On his right hand, he has a tattoo of a red triangle. He has at least two outfits, the first consisting of a white buttoned shirt and black trousers, while the second consists of a pink v-neck shirt underneath a light gray suit jacket, with black trousers that ends above his ankles. When Ryoken was a child, he wore gray hoodie, pink shirt, blue jeans and blue shoes.
Much like the other Knights of Hanoi, Revolver is a ruthless individual that seeks Ignis. For some reason, he bears a great hatred towards Ignis and the Cyberse world considering them a threat to the real world, and wanted to destroy them both, even using ordinary people for their goals. However Revolver claims that his actions are so that he can fulfill his promise to his father. Unlike most hackers, the Revolver distrusts the Link VRAINS and the people that, to him, are dedicating their lives to it and make false relationships with other people. Instead, he values more a person's abilities. He distrusts Artificial Intelligence, to the point where he does not have one installed into his Duel Disk. Due to that, he looks down as on the internet world as false.
Oddly enough, Revolver shares Yusaku's habit of listing out three reasons for his observations.
Revolver can summon Data Storms at will. He is also a professional hacker and can even infiltrate the system of LINK VRAINS, stating he could even destroy it. He shares the same Skill as Playmaker, "Storm Access" which allows him to add a random Link Monster from a Data Storm to his Extra Deck when his LP are 1000 or less.
Meeting Yusaku Fujiki EditWhen Ryoken was a child, he ran on the street and accidentally bumped into a fellow boy, whose name was Yusaku. They accidentally dropped their cards, and quickly collected them. Seeing Yusaku was a duel monsters fan, Ryoken invited him to his house to show his deck.
Lost incident project EditRyoken was witness to the Lost incident case and he heard their screaming for whole 6 months. Thinking that he's doing the right thing, Ryoken got courage and reported the kidnapping to the police. After the six kids were saved, Ryoken's father, dr. Kogami was captured by SOL Technologies and they put him computer virus. Ryoken lived alone for a three years, waiting for his father to back home. But, then he realized that his father wont ever come back. So, he decided along with his friends to restore his father's conscious in LINK VRAINS.
Truth about Ignis Edit
Three years before the events, Revolver along with his friends Faust, Baira, Dr. Genome and Spectre managed to restore dr. Kogami into LINK VRAINS and he find out the truth about Ignis. Dr. Kogami told Revolver that Ignis, who would progress, would eventually destroy the world. He believed Ignis would improve humanity's lives, and instead, he saw the AI would eventually supervise humanity. He feared the humanity would see AI as an enemy, a life-form they would want to conquer, and this would also make the humanity as Ignis' enemy. Dr. Kogami told Revolver that SOL Technologies knew of this threat, but they only infected him with a virus. Revolver decided to destroy Ignis along with SOL Technologies.
Starting the project Edit
Revolver is a friend to Baira and Faust, and the latter considered Revolver as his younger brother.
Five years before the start of the series, Revolver assaulted the "Cyberse World" with a "Cracking Dragon" of his own with the intention to destroy it. The different Artificial Intelligences that protected it were restrained by Revolver and thus unable to stop. However the AI Ignis appeared and forced a disconnection of the Cyberse World from the rest of the network, thus forcing Revolver out of the Cyberse World while keeping its location known only to him. However, Revolver, furious by Ignis' interference, ordered his "Cracking Dragon" to capture Ignis, which led to the AI to be dismembered by the monster's jaws. This made Revolver and the Knights of Hanoi spend the following years searching for Ignis' parts in order to find the location of the Cyberse World.
The Knights of Hanoi's treat, Playmaker Edit
At the present, the Knights of Hanoi continued their search of Ignis; but had many of their operations interrupted by the mysterious Duelist Playmaker, who defeated their agents, earning a name for himself. Spectre informed Revolver that a trace of Ignis was detected and that SOL Technologies was in pursuit. Knowing that if SOL retrieved Ignis, they would be able to restore the Cyberse World and ruin the Knights' efforts, forcing the Knights to act. Spectre informed Revolver about Playmaker, who had interfered with the, before. Revolver wondered if Playmaker was a member of SOL, but dismissed the possibility as they would act more publicly. Specter added that Playmaker erased every trace of his activity and eluded the Knights' searches, concluding that whoever he is he must be a skilled hacker. Revolver became interested in Playmaker, but decided to leave him for now as Ignis was their priority. While SOL Technology performed a City Scan in order to search for Ignis, the Knights of Hanoi decided to attack as the defenses of VRAINS would be left vulnerable at that point.
Revolver ordered his men to search for Ignis, assaulting the digital world with their "Cracking Dragons" and ravaging the users in their way, deleting their accounts in the process. Ignis' remnants in the form of an eye was swiftly cornered by the Knights until Yusaku Fujiki and Shoichi Kusanagi used the lowered defenses to create an alternative path for Ignis, who used the newly made escape route, but ended up in Yusaku's Duel Disk as a result. Yusaku entered VRAINS using his persona Playmaker, saving the Charisma Duelist Blue Angel at the nick of time before she was deleted. Playmaker then confronted the Knight of Hanoi who told him that the AI they were looking for was on his Duel Disk and threatened to delete it if they did not cease their attack. Since Ignis was bonded to Playmaker's Duel Disk, the Knights must defeat Playmaker in a Duel in order to obtain it. Revolver, watching from afar, was amused at Playmaker while the Knights' agent accepted the challenge. During the Speed Duel between Playmaker and The Knight of hanoi, he was suprised that Playmaker summoned a Cyberse Monster and stated that they had destroyed a vast amount of them to the point they believed Cyberse monsters to be extinct.
Approach Blue Angel Edit
Spectre and Revolver subsequently elaborated the events of the Duel with Playmaker. Revolver preferred Playmaker having his hands on Ignis for a while over SOL Technology having him, but added they should not leave him with Playmaker for too long. He them summed up a list of characteristics of Playmaker's that might help discover his true identity, one of these being that Playmaker would eventually want to Duel him. Later on, Revolver sensed Ignis and tried to find him but failed. He later discussed a new program with Kiyoshi Kogami. Hearing an alarm, Revolver briefly logged off VRAINS to go visit his father and assured him he would fulfill his wish. Later inside the Knights base, he and Specter watched Blue Angel's public announcement to duel Playmaker. Spectre told Revolver that they could use her.
During her Duel against Playmaker, Blue Angel fell in a trance and Revolver told her she was a Knight of Hanoi, prompting her to activate "Dark Angel's" effect. When Blue Angel was defeated, Revolver was certain that Playmaker would have to comply to his demands. Dr. Kogami said Ignis had to be destroyed and Revolver was concerned about Kogami since he designed Ignis. Kogami told Revolver was a painful decision to destroy the AI, while Revolver reminded the importance of destroying Ignis and Cyberse. When Akira Zaizen and Ghost Girl captured and interrogated Playmaker, Revolver appeared before them and demanded him to be freed, as he was challenging him to a Duel. When Akira refused, Revolver showed his power by summoning a Data Storm and obliterating the place. He also threatened to destroy LINK VRAINS, but stated that was not his intention, since he was interested in Ignis that Playmaker had in his possession. When Akira refused to handover Ignis, Revolver revealed they placed a computer virus inside Blue Angel as a hostage and only they had the ability to reverse it with the removal program.
Revolver admitted they could've placed the virus into anyone, but Blue Angel was the most efficient target to draw Playmaker out. Akira demands Revolver to hand over the removal program, but he reminds Akira that he is in no position of making demands. Furthermore, Revolver also knew that Akira, as the Security-in-Chief, had to take Ignis back, but doing so would make Blue Angel - Akira's sister - under permanent effect of the virus. Thus, he promised to hand over the program if Playmaker defeats him. Hesitate at first, Akira freed Playmaker while Revolver left to wait for Playmaker to come and Duel him.
Duel against Playmaker Edit
As the two rode off on the Data Wind, Revolver reminded Playmaker he interfered a lot of times in the Knights of Hanoi's plans. Playmaker promised to defeat him and uncover their identities while Revolver didn't care much for Playmaker's since they had many enemies. He declared their mission was to retrieve Ignis and was surprised that Playmaker had no knowledge of Ignis as an AI. Ignis promised to eat Revolver's program and reclaim his body back, while Revolver stated if he were to win, Ignis would be his own. Revolver admitted he didn't bring his AI for his Duel Disk, as he didn't trust them, claiming the internet was but a fiction. He valued the personal values of man, and didn't trust the fake relationships and dedications over LINK VRAINS; in his words, such ignorance would destroy the world, as would Ignis and declared Playmaker as his enemy for helping Ignis. Before the Duel began, Revolver waved his hand causing the LINK VRAINS to be crushed and replaced with lava rivers and fiery lakes. Taking the first turn, Revolver used "Dragonoid Generator" to Special Summon two "Dragonoid Tokens" and Advance Summon "Cracking Dragon". He then summoned the "Dragonoid Tokens" on Playmaker's field and used "Cracking Dragon's" effect to deal him damage.
Despite this, the Playmaker managed to turn around the tables by Link Summoning three monsters and destroying "Cracking Dragon" with "Decode Talker", lowering Revolver's LP to 1400. Despite having the advantage, Playmaker noted that Revolver was vigorous and would not give up. Revolver thanked Playmaker for clearing his field, as he brought out "Twin Triangle Dragon" and revived "Cracking Dragon" back, at cost of it unable to attack and shaving 500 LP off. Revolver sensed a power inside the network, and summoned a Data Storm, showing off the Skill Playmaker has, "Storm Access". With such power, Revolver used all of his monsters to Link Summon "Topologic Bomber Dragon", for he was amused to use a Cyberse monster against other Cyberse monsters. Using "Draconid Generator", Revolver had "Bomber Dragon" use its effect to destroy "Dragonoid Token" and Playmaker's "Condenser Death Stalker", albeit the latter's effect caused Revolver's LP to be lowered down to 100. Despite this, "Decode Talker's" ATK were lowered down and Revolver had "Topologic Bomber Dragon" destroy it. "Topologic Bomber Dragon's" effect caused Playmaker to take damage equal to "Decode Talker's" ATK. Revolver claimed that Playmaker lost this Duel and smiled, as his dragon executed it's effect.
To stop the effect, Playmaker activated "Link Restart", and even revived "Decode Talker". Revolver noted how tough Playmaker was to avoid this situation, as "Dragonoid Generator" summoned another Token to Playmaker's field. As Playmaker had Ai conjure a Data Storm, Revolver was glad they did that, since he expected them to do that. He mused how his goal for the Speed Duel was completed. After Playmaker used Storm Access, Revolver was impressed, considering how mighty the Data Storm was. Playmaker went to Link Summon, but Revolver stopped that with "Remote Reborn", summoning a monster from Playmaker's field to one of zones "Topologic Bomber Dragon" points to, with the intention of using his dragon's effect to destroy every monster in Main Monster Zones. "Condenser Death Stalker"'s effect dealt 800 LP Damage, causing both Revolver and Playmaker's LP to fall to 0.
Ai suspected Revolver wanted the Duel to end in a tie, but Revolver denied this, declaring he could predict their every move. Suddenly, Revolver and Playmaker were pulled to the Data Storm, as the latter realized Revolver actually planned this. Revolver and Playmaker were separated from their D-Boards, and entered the center of the Data Storm - a calm place, filled with floating rocks. Revolver declared the place to be their new stage of battle, as a shining card Kiyoshi Kogami sent to LINK VRAINS was added to his Deck. Revolver explained they would have a Master Duel that had more Monster and Magic & Trap Zones, fitting for them to show off their Link Monsters' prowess. Having the first turn in the Master Duel, Revolver took on defense by playing "Skyfire Prison", "Twin Triangle Dragon" and "Beltlink Wall Dragon" to make it harder to Link Summon and attack. Playmaker was worried about these defenses, and suspected it could be a part of Revolver's plan. Instead, Playmaker summoned "Encode Talker" and had it attack "Twin Triangle Dragon".
Due to "Beltlink Wall Dragon's" effect, the attack was redirected to itself, making Playmaker's attack nullified. However, he did summon "Interrupt Resistance"; Revolver realized Playmaker was preparing for a new Link Summon, but swore that strategy would cost Playmaker dearly. Revolver Link Summoned "Three Burst Shot Dragon", surprising Ai, since Revolver could've summoned "Topologic Bomber Dragon" instead, and was even more surprised he targeted "Backup Secretary" instead of "Encode Talker" for an attack target. Since "Three Burst Shot Dragon" negated "Encode Talker's" effect, Playmaker had "Interrupt Resistance" boost DEF of "Backup Secretary" to take less damage from Revolver's dragon's piercing effect. Playmaker sensed that Revolver would bring out a different monster than "Topologic Bomber Dragon". To stop that, Playmaker summoned "Decode Talker" to take out "Beltlink Wall Dragon". Revolver anticipated this, and used "Skyfire Prison's" effect to negate every Cyberse card as if it didn't exist, causing "Encode Talker" and "Decode Talker" to vanish, and even make Ai disappear.
Revolver told Playmaker it was his fault for listening to Ai that made Cyberse cards unusable. Since Playmaker did not know about Ai, Revolver told how there were tests to create life forms inside the network, but most attempts lacked free will. However, there was one person that succeeded, and that product was Ai, the first AI with free will. Playmaker did not believe in this story, but Revolver ignored him. He stated the most important thing was to capture and destroy Ai, who had created the Cyberse and wanted to conquer the network. In his next turn, Revolver used "Three Burst Shot Dragon's" effect to summon more Dragons, all to bring out his ace, "Varrel Load Dragon". Playmaker recognized it as it was the same dragon Revolver rode on when he was searching for Ai when Yusaku and Shoichi hacked it.
Revolver, who placed a safety mask on, declared a direct attack with his dragon, causing 3000 points of LP damage to Playmaker, even causing the blast to come out of the Data Storm. Since Playmaker was knocked out, Revolver smiled, seeing the match ended. However, Playmaker stood up, and Revolver saw he failed to crush his confidence. As Playmaker played "Cybenet Universe", Revolver claimed it was a pointless move, since there were no Cyberse monsters. Playmaker denied this, since he could sense their pulses; Revolver was greatly displeased, and shocked how he used two of his ace monsters to Link Summon "Firewall Dragon". Revolver realized that was the card Playmaker had obtained from the Data Storm, and with its summoning, "Skyfire Prison" vanished. "Firewall Dragon" destroyed "Beltlink Wall Dragon", which frustrated Revolver, as Playmaker's "Parallel Port Armor" made his dragon untargetable and undestroyable by battle.
He took the next turn, replenishing his hand and brining back "Anesvarrett Dragon" and "Autovarrett Dragon" back. By using "Varrel Load Dragon" to decrease "Autovarret Dragon's" ATK and DEF, then send it to the Graveyard to destroy "Firewall Dragon's" defenses. Surprisingly to Ai and Playmaker, "Varrel Load Dragon's" attack caused "Firewall Dragon" to switch over to Revolver's field. Revolver, intending to have Playmaker's own Cyberse card defeat it, had "Firewall Dragon" attack directly, but the attack was canceled by "Cybenet Refresh". Still, Revolver boosted his defenses by reviving two of his "Magnavarrett Dragons" back. Playmaker brought back his "Encode Talker" and "Firewall Dragon", declaring the true fight had only begun.
When Playmaker's "Firewall Dragon" used its effect to return "Varrel Load Dragon" from the field, Revolver informed him that it couldn't be targeted by effects. Playmaker targeted "Magnavarrett Dragon", whose effect caused "Firewall Dragon" to be destroyed. Instead, Playmaker's "Cybenet Refresh" protected his dragon from destruction. Revolver was amused, and ended his turn. Much to Revolver's surprise, Playmaker had "Firewall Dragon", protected by "Encode Talker", attack "Varrel Load Dragon", who had more ATK. With "Battle Buffer", "Encode Talker's" ATK was raised, and impressed Revolver for such a strategy. To counter that, Revolver targeted "Encode Talker" with his dragon to reduce the ATK, causing "Encode Talker" to be destroyed and Playmaker's strategy to backfire. While "Firewall Dragon's" ATK was raised by "Battle Buffer", Revolver's "varrett" dragons regained their effects. Revolver claimed the match was over, as Playmaker could not attack anymore. The latter made him doubt that, since he could not use "Magnavarrett Dragon's" effect.
Using "Recoded Alive", Playmaker revived "Decode Talker", whose ATK was boosted up to destroy "Varrel Load Dragon". However, Revolver used "Varrel Refrigeration" to make "Magnavarrett Dragon" destroy itself to blast away "Decode Talker". Revolver smiled, seeing how close he was to his victory, with Playmaker having no cards nor attacks to execute. Playmaker refused to lose, and claimed he wanted to uncover the events that had happened 10 years ago, to recover the time he had lost and wanted to save the person that saved him. Revolver was surprised about what happened 10 years ago involved Playmaker, who replied he was "that emissary of revenge". Revolver claimed Playmaker was a fool to help SOL Technologies out without knowing the truth. Playmaker refused to listen, and using "Parallel Port Armor", he had "Firewall Dragon" attack once more to perform a One Turn Kill. The attack destroyed "Varrel Load Dragon", and Revolver was slammed to a rock as his LP fell to zero.
He then lost his avatar's arm when Ai became vicious and tried to devour Revolver. Revolver was pulled up to be logged out, but as he promised, he threw a card that would remove Blue Angel's virus. Before leaving, Revolver stated as long as Playmaker had Ai, their Duel would continue on. Revolver returned to his base and Kiyoshi Kogami was surprised how Revolver let his guard down, seeing it was about that incident Playmaker spoke. Revolver apologized to him as his father, and as his hand recovered, claimed next time would be different. His father stated that Revolver didn't need to think of that, and seeing how they could not retrieve Ai, he went to execute the other plan, and needed time to make preparations for that. Revolver nodded, and recalling Playmaker's speech pattern of three points of analysis, he wondered about his connection towards him. Revolver and Kogami went to a deep pit where Kogami showed him a seed shaped like a cube, which would grow into a "fruit" that would destroy the whole network, including LINK VRAINS. Revolver watched Kogami released the seed, which fell into the pit. Revolver was still at the pit, with his father absent. He remarked the battle for humanity would begin soon enough.
Another case Edit
As the Another victims were being infected, Revolver was worried if the Hanoi program was activated, the Lost Incident records would be deleted, and he'd never uncover Playmaker's identity. He was contacted by his father, who reported the Hanoi program would soon be finished. Revolver was still sad, as he wished to settle things with Playmaker. He told he wouldn't move on until he defeats Playmaker, and his father permitted him the rematch, as long as it didn't take too much time. Later, Revolver watched as the Knights of Hanoi forced people to Duel, preventing them from logging out. Revolver was unamused, considering a thousand people that joined the Knights of Hanoi were mere grunts, who wanted self-promotion by opposing LINK VRAINS. He was visited by two Faust and Baira, who informed him Doctor Genome was making his move, and gave him the Data Gale. After Baira released the virus-removal program and logged out, she appeared next to Revolver, who punished her.
With all three of his subordinates - Genome, Baira, and Faust - defeated and resting inside pods, Revolver left his headquarters in LINK VRAINS. In the real world, at Kyoko Taki's apartment, Revolver removed a flashdrive from its hiding place and looked at the video recording on it - Yusaku and Shoichi in Baira's room witnessing Blue Angel defeating Baira. Ai appeared in the video and Revolver smiled, as he learned that Playmaker was Yusaku. Revolver was at the pit, and proclaimed the time has come that he would risk the fate of the humanity on the Tower of Hanoi.
Revolver was at Stardust Road, ordering food from the Café Nagi food truck, his face still hidden. He told Shoichi, who was still unaware of his true identity, that this would be the last time he would order from him. Shoichi asked him if he was moving away. Revolver replied that his reason was something like that before leaving.
Duel against Ghost Girl Edit
Revolver returned to LINK VRAINS where he met up with Spectre, lamenting the loss of Genome, Baira and Faust. He explained he was too focused on Playmaker. Despite this, Revolver told the three were the core for his plan. Spectre asked if Revolver was fine with the fact that they still didn't know Playmaker's identity. Revolver proclaimed the plan had to resolve, even if it cost him his life, promising to defeat anyone that stood in his path. Later, he met Ghost Girl at the reprocessing plant, and was surprised to find her there. Revolver noted Ghost Girl was snooping again, who promised to leave. However, Revolver raised the barrier, stating he can't let her leave this place. Ghost Girl used the rope to reach a different exit, but Revolver barred her. Ghost Girl questioned Revolver what would he do with her after she would be captured, suspecting she would be in trouble. Revolver offered her a Duel to shape his Deck out, allowing her to leave if she would win. Ghost Girl attempted to leave, but Revolver pointed out logging out was disabled. Thus, being forced to fight, Ghost Girl initiated her first turn in the Speed Duel.Revolver applied his swarming tactics to bring out monsters to his field. Ghost Girl noted Revolver did not bring an AI for his Duel Disk, as Revolver stated trusting an AI is foolish. Ghost Girl remembered Revolver spoke that Ignis would destroy the world, but Revolver ignored her, considering her as a mercenary that would not understand that. Ghost Girl reminded herself of Revolver's ace, and noted the longer the Duel lasted, the more she would be at a disadvantage. Revolver quickly brought out "Topologic Bomber Dragon", as Ghost Girl sensed Revolver wanted to quickly end the Duel. Revolver's dragon attacked Ghost Girl's "Altergeist Marionetter". To prevent this, Ghost Girl played "Altergeist Kunquery", and sealed off the dragon's effects. Ghost Girl questioned Revolver about the energy sphere, and Revolver simply replied something unimaginable was bound to happen. Ghost Girl brought out "Altergeist Primebanshee" and Kidolga". Her "Altergeist" monsters attacked Revolver directly, dropping his LP to 400, and even took Revolver's "Twin Triangle Dragon" to defeat him. Ghost Girl gloated in her victory, but Ghost Girl gloated in her victory, but Revolver called her a fool. Playing a Trap Card, Revolver negated the attack and destroyed all of Ghost Girl's Link Monsters. Ghost Girl realized Revolver could've simply played his card earlier to avoid damage, and all of that was just so he could activate his Skill. Revolver mocked her for not being able to predict that, while Ghost Girl returned her "Altergeist Marionetter" to her hand.
Playing a Trap Card, Revolver negated the attack and destroyed all of Ghost Girl's Link Monsters. To prevent Revolver from using his Skill, Ghost Girl activated her, Skill, Secret Cure, to at least raise Revolver's LP. Much to her displeasure, she drew the 0 ATK "Altergeist Kunquery". Revolver continued mocking her, stating luck has abandoned her. Ghost Girl planned her strategy to deal with Revolver's effects and attacks, by using "Altergeist Protocol". Revolver simply set Ghost Girl's card off with "Red Reboot", at the cost of halving his LP for using it from his hand. He also let Ghost Girl set a Trap Card from her Deck, but she was unable to play any Trap Cards during his turn. Ghost Girl still hoped in having the LP and field advantage, but Revolver mocked her, claiming only darkness awaited her, from which she could not escape from. Revolver, after bringing out three dragons, used Storm Access, taking out a Link Monster from the Data Storm, emitted from the purplish sphere. Revolver Link Summoned his new monster, "Topologic Trisbaena", and revived "Defradragoon" at the position of former's Link Marker. "Topologic Trisbaena" Excluded away all of Ghost Girl's Trap Cards and dealt her 1500 LP damage, and attacked her directly. Ghost Girl screamed, as she was defeated. Revolver confronted Playmaker, who demanded to know about Ghost Girl's whereabouts. Revolver simply proclaimed she became a foundation for the Tower of Hanoi, which was activated. He stated should Playmaker wish to stop it, he'd have to confront him. With the purplish sphere emitting tentacles that destroyed the place, Revolver jumped away.
Kitamura's test Edit
Revolver responded to Kitamura's calling, who asked to speak with the Knights of Hanoi's leader. Kitamura was startled to meet Revolver, who threatened to erase Kitamura If he wasted his time. Kitamura pointed out there was no media reporter around, and since they were alone, he wanted to propose a secret deal. Kitamura proposed an alliance to rule LINK VRAINS, amusing Revolver. Kitamura knew the Knights of Hanoi have the control of LINK VRAINS, and he explained he would maintain their domain, thinking they could even earn a fortune. Revolver was intrigued, but in order to have Kitamura join them, he had him undertake a test. Revolver went away, leaving Spectre to face Kitamura in a Master Duel.
Revolver's ambition Edit
Revolver at his headquarters, approached his unconscious subordinates, who were lying on pods. Revolver praised Spectre's hard work, and said that his defeat would not be in vain. He noted the tower was getting closer to completion, but knew Playmaker would arrive to face him. He believed this fight started ten years ago, when he launched the attack on Cyberse. He remembered the attempts of acquiring Ignis, even using Blue Angel to do their bidding, and he personally went to face Playmaker, forcing their battle to continue into the Data Storm itself. He noted Playmaker was the enemy that did not forget a single day for ten years, and noted he was his destined opponent. Revolver wanted to find Playmaker's identity, even after his father planted the seed to erase all data. Due to that, Revolver's subordinates have gone to fight off Playmaker and his allies, all to prevent Revolver from becoming the biggest criminal in history, who was too focused on Playmaker. Dr. Kogami approached Revolver, asking if he uncovered Playmaker's identity. Revolver denied, even though he did see Yusaku's face in footage. Dr. Kogami noted ever since the tower was in place, Revolver's interest in Playmaker's identity vanished. Regardless, he reminded Revolver that even if the world would see them as criminals that took revenge against SOL Technologies, even with all the victims that would soon be erased, he thought one day they would learn the truth of the danger an AI with free will imposed. Revolver noted that they were prisoners of destiny, and the fated, final Duel against Playmaker would commence soon, one he intended to win.
Duel against Go Onizuka EditGo Onizuka was near the Tower of Hanoi, and remembered his promise to his manager. In front of the tower, Go was confronted by Revolver, who came to stop him, and the two noted each other's names. Go noted Revolver would use the tower to destroy the data. Revolver smiled, doubting Go would understand the Knights of Hanoi's plans. Go confirmed this, since he did not wish to listen gibberish from a "villain", and would never forgive Revolver these actions. Revolver wondered why Go came, since Blue Angel has been absorbed already. Warning the same would happen to Go, Revolver let him retreat. Go was surprised to hear Blue Angel had been defeated, as Revolver noted Spectre defeated her, but lost to Playmaker. Revolver pointed out his enemy was Playmaker rather than Go. Go swore to stop Revolver, just like Playmaker did to Spectre. Revolver noted Go did defeat one of his subordinates, and accepted the challenge. Go remembered Playmaker's warning about Revolver's powerful card, and hoped his refined deck should suffice. Go started the first round by Link Summoning "Gouki Thunder Ogre" and supplying his field with three "Gouki" monsters as backup. When Playmaker arrived, Go claimed he would be the one to defeat Revolver, who was unamused Go was distracted by a bystander. Revolver's swarming tactics let him Link Summon "Triple Burst Dragon" and draw two cards with the effect of "Arrow Charge". To belittle Go, Revolver used Go's "Gouki Thunder Ogre" for the additional Normal Summon of "Triggering Wurm", and use it to Link Summon "Topologic Bomber Dragon". "Triggering Wurm" was revived from the GY, and Revolver used his Dragon's effect to clear everyone's Main Monster Zones. To minimize the damage, Go tributed "Gouki Twistcobra" to increase the ATK of "Gouki Thunder Ogre" to 4500, and its effect increased its own ATK by 400. Revolver boosted his Dragon with "Link Protection" and attacked "Gouki Thunder Ogre", which triggered his Dragon's effect to destroy the ogre and inflict 2200 LP damage to Go. Go discarded "Gouki Octostretch" to halve the damage. Revolver complimented Go for this tactic, but wondered how long would that last. Thinking of the children, Go swore to restore LINK VRAINS. Go Link Summoned "Gouki Heel Ogre" next to the link of "Topologic Bomber Dragon". The latter's effect was triggered, but "Shadow Ogre" negated its effect and destroyed the Dragon. Go pointed out he also used Revolver's monster to his advantage, which made Revolver smirk. Revolver banished "Link Protection" and "Topologic Bomber Dragon" to prevent Go from attacking, unless he had four Link Monsters. Go made progress by reviving "Gouki Jet Ogre" and bringing out "Gouki The Great Ogre"
Go swore to stop Revolver, who admitted his admiration for Go's passion. However, he reminded he was ruthless, and used a flashing "Mirror Force" to destroy all of Go's monsters, thus intentionally cancelling his efforts. Go realized that was the card Playmaker warned him about, making Revolver to laugh. Revolver offered Go to surrender. However, instead of his confidence crushed, Go became more determined to win, to use everything he had to stop Revolver. He played "Gouki Ringtrainer" to resurrect his "Gouki The Great Ogre" that Revolver had destroyed. Revolver promised to "honor" his opponent by obliterating him. He played "Boot Sector Launch" to summon "Shelrokket Dragon" and "Metalrokket Dragon", using them to Link Summon "Booster Dragon". Revolver targeted the effect of "Booster Dragon" to "Shellrokket Dragon", firing the missile to destroy Go's "Gouki" monsters. With no monsters left, Go took the attack of "Booster Dragon", lowering his LP to 1000. Go had "Gouki Moonsault" return his "Gouki Jet Ogre" to his Extra Deck, only to Link Summon it later on. He destroyed it to force Revolver's monsters in Attack Position, preparing them for battle. He revived "Gouki Jet Ogre" with "Gouki Grit", and used all of his monsters to Link Summon his new monster, "Gouki The Giant Ogre", which sparked Revolver's interest. Go's ogre, whose ATK became 5000, attacked "Booster Dragon", reduced Revolver's LP by 3100 points, as a "payback" for Revolver's actions. While Revolver Special Summoned "Triple Burst Dragon" from his GY, Go claimed he was always improving himself. Revolver summoned a "Magnarokket Dragon", and targeted it with the effect of "Booster Dragon". Revolver targeted "Gouki The Giant Ogre" as his target for destruction, who was unaffected by that effect, and the missile bounced off it. Revolver became displeased his effort were in vain, claiming Go was stubborn. Go reminded he always Dueled in public, and many children were looking up to him. However, he noted currently there was no fan cheering on for him, and now was fighting only for himself. He wanted to prove his strength, and dared Revolver to show his own, who creepily smiled. Revolver proceeded by summoning "Borrelsword Dragon", surprised Go actually forced him to summon this monster that would mark his enemy's end. Revolver admitted he did not care for whom he fought, for he was just carrying on his goal. The dragon and the ogre clashed, with neither side being indestructible in battle. "Borrelsword Dragon" gained half the ATK that was cut off from "Gouki The Giant Ogre", increasing its ATK to 4500. Revolver switched the position of "Metalrokket Dragon" to destroy "Gouki The Giant Ogre". The attempt failed, for the latter's ATK increased by 1000 when its ATK was reduced, thus becoming immune to "Metalrokket Dragon". This, however, allowed "Borrelsword Dragon" to attack once more, and slashed Go's "Gouki The Giant Ogre" and defeating Go himself. After Go faded away, Revolver reminded Playmaker they were the two last people in LINK VRAINS. Playmaker nodded, for it was time for a final confrontation against Revolver.
Another duel against Playmaker EditTo stop Revolver, Playmaker and his opponent went on their D-Boards to have a Speed Duel around the tower. This displeased Ai, since they were Dueling in a dangerous area. Playmaker reminded Revolver about his goal to destroy Ignis, and pointed out he would throw the world into chaos by destroying the network. Revolver explained he would not have been forced to do this if Ignis was given him from the start, and would not have anyone stop his plan. Revolver promised to destroy Ai, who was feeling unpleasant. Since Revolver defeated many people, Playmaker swore to stop him through this Duel. Ai motivated Playmaker, who took the first turn by summoning "Decode Talker". Ai was glad the monster was summoned, though Revolver simply smiled. Playmaker used "Stack Reviver" to bring back "Backup Secretary" and boost the ATK of "Decode Talker" for a bit. Ai warned Playmaker about the floating debris, which nearly hit them. Ai was nevertheless enthusiastic, believing that his teamwork with Playmaker would prove no match against Revolver. Ai started to practice punching, which made Revolver remark what an arrogant AI it was. Revolver gave Playmaker a question why Ai was running away from the Knights of Hanoi. Ai reminded it was its existence on the stake, while Playmaker remembered Ai had few memories when he first found it. Revolver explained Ignis was coded by Dr. Kogami, and since Playmaker could not decode it, he only believed what Ai told him. Revolver explained through the data he acquired, Ai still had memories of its past. He claimed that Ignis' ID was "IGN006", an AI linked to the sixth test subject, shaped after Playmaker itself. Revolver continued, explaining six test subjects were used for Dueling to create six artificial intelligence units, which was the goal of the Lost Incident project. He told Ai learned through Playmaker's actions, its original goal was to save humanity, but they evolved quickly, to the point of creating the Cyberse World, which Ai hid to protect other Ignises. Revolver pointed out Ai, in fact, was misleading Playmaker, lying that it lost its memories. Due to the fact it could lie, Revolver branded Ignis as a threat to humanity, and why the Knights of Hanoi were determined to hunt it down. Revolver questioned Playmaker would he continue trust Ai, who tried to explain when he saw Playmaker, Ai knew it was the same person he observed during the Lost Incident. However, he claimed he had been trying to escape, and could not trust anyone. Revolver was angry Ai continued lying, but Playmaker reminded this had no bearing on their Duel. Ai feared what would happen to his friendship with Playmaker, who brushed him off, reminding Ai was just a hostage, and felt no friendship towards him. Revolver swore to defeat Playmaker and crush Ai, who warned them about another debris. Drawing "Mirror Force", Revolver set it and summoned "Spin-Headed Behemoth". Ai pointed out how suspicious it was that Revolver summoned a low-ATK monster, but Playmaker shushed him. Playmaker, per Ai's warning, dodged a debris, which scratched a part of his face, which quickly regenerated. Looking at Revolver's set card, he remembered Go and Ghost Girl's sacrifices, knowing that card must be "Mirror Force". Thus, his Defense Position"Foal Tolelancer" protected his Attack Position monsters from being destroyed by such cards. Revolver showed it, indeed, was "Mirror Force", but "Spin-Headed Behemoth" shifted all of Playmaker's monsters to Attack Position. Without the protection of "Foal Tolelancer", all of Playmaker's monsters were destroyed, too. In addition, Revolver Special Summoned "Overflow Dragon" and summoned an "Overflow Token". Despite the lack of trust, Ai reminded he would be destroyed if Playmaker lost, who simply ignored Ai. Going on offense, Revolver Link Summoned "Flash Charge Dragon" and Normal Summoned "Blast Powder Dragon", who boosted the former's ATK by 800. Playmaker took a direct attack, falling to his knees as his LP dropped to 900, which concerned Ai. Ai still reminded Playmaker would be at least down to 100, until Revolver's "Blast Powder Dragon" had its ATK doubled. Revolver proclaimed Playmaker's doom, as, once more, his dragon attacked him directly. Remembering his promise to his father, Revolver's "Blast Powder Dragon" attacked Playmaker directly. Ai feared this would be the end, but Playmaker used "Spool Code" to stop the attack and summon three "Spool Tokens". Revolver was nevertheless persistent, using "Flash Charge Dragon" to destroy one Token and inflict 500 LP damage to Playmaker. In order to get out of this predicament, Playmaker Link Summoned "Link Disciple" and "Security Dragon" by linking them. The latter's effect attempted to return "Flash Charge Dragon" to Revolver's Extra Deck, who instead tribute "Blast Powder Dragon" to prevent that effect from occurring. Ai was disappointed the strategy failed, and upon counting 400 LP that Playmaker had, realized he could activate his Skill. The rubble started hitting Playmaker, as Ai noted that was a dangerous move. Playmaker sensed a lot of density in the Data Storm, and there was no other way to defeat Revolver, who thought Playmaker would destroy himself with that move. Playmaker reached his hand into the Data Storm, but was overwhelmed by the energy. However, Ai, who got bigger, reached out to Playmaker, saving him from the fall and regenerated his body.
Ai explained this was his secret move he wanted to use in the end, and helped Playmaker get back on his D-Board before minimizing itself into the Duel Disk. Playmaker was surprised about this move, but Ai claimed he would go down with Playmaker, believing he was still its friend. Ai took control of the D-Board and shielded Playmaker, to let him execute his Skill for a limited time, reminding this is his way to atone for not speaking the truth. Playmaker took the card out of the Data Storm, and heard Ai bidding him farewell before disappearing. With Ai's help, Playmaker took out the Link Monster, "Transcode Talker", which surprised Revolver. Playmaker Special Summoned "Decode Talker" next to the Link Marker of "Transcode Talker". Their ATK was further boosted with "Cynet Storm". "Decode Talker" slashed "Flash Charge Dragon", and "Transcode Talker" fired out a blast from its cannon to attack Revolver directly. Revolver Special Summoned "Chobham Armor Dragon" to protect himself, though he took 1650 LP damage. Playmaker gritted his teeth, as Revolver reminded him not to underestimate him. When Revolver started his turn, Ai came out of Playmaker's Duel Disk, but became smaller, since he recovered from the damage it took. Revolver reminded he still had the same Skill Playmaker has, and remembered with the help of his father, he should succeed in taking out a monster from the Data Storm. He proceeded to use his Skill, but was nearly harmed from the density. Knowing Playmaker succeeded in using the Skill, Revolver stuck his hand, only to get harmed by the energy. Revolver was taken aback from the damage. He still went to use his Skill, as Playmaker and Ai noted he still wanted to win at any cost. Suddenly, the Data Storm stopped, as Dr. Kogami appeared to his son, Revolver. Dr. Kogami admitted he was not a good father to let his son suffer, who never complained. He explained he didn't want Revolver involved in any of this, but reminded without him, the world would be in chaos. While Playmaker and Ai were wondering about Dr. Kogami's words, the latter decided to lend his strength in helping Revolver to win, all to protect the humanity. Dr. Kogami's essence passed onto Revolver, who noticed a glitter in the Data Storm, much like the light of the Stardust Road. Revolver went through the Data Storm and obtained a new Cyberse monster, but noticed Dr. Kogami's heart was damaged. Revolver muttered "Stardust Road", which Playmaker heard of. Revolver used "Link Recovery" to recover his "Flash Charge Dragon" and let Playmaker draw a card, with the cost of unable of opening the Battle Phase. Revolver used his monsters to Link Summon the new monster he obtained, "Topologic Gumblar Dragon". Noticing Dr. Kogami's heart stopped beating, Revolver explained he can't continue the Duel. To wrap things up, he summoned "Drop Draco", triggering his "Topologic" dragon's effect to destroy it and every card in Revolver and Playmaker's hands. For each card destroyed, "Drop Dragon" inflicted 300 LP for each card destroyed, thus causing Playmaker and Revolver's Duel to end in another DRAW. Playmaker and Revolver were blown away, but the former was more worried about his father.
Meeting Yusaku Fujiki and Shoichi Kusanagi EditShoichi was shocked at the events. Yusaku managed to get out, although strained, as Ai explained the shockwave made them log out. Shoichi admitted his shock upon seeing Dr. Kogami alive, and explained his son must've logged out, too. Regardless, he reminded the Tower of Hanoi was still active. Ai, knowing he and the others of his kin would be erased, asked of Yusaku to log in. Yusaku claimed that was pointless, for without Revolver, the tower would still be active. He asked of Shoichi to drive to Revolver's place. Yusaku explained Revolver mentioned Stardust Road and it's phenomenon, and explained that Shoichi knew a person living close to it must've seen that phenomenon, making Shoichi realize they were near Revolver's place. During the sunset, the group came to Revolver's house, where they confronted Revolver. Revolver noted Playmaker has found this place. He already knew Yusaku Fujiki's name, and that of Jin Kusanagi's brother, Shoichi. Ai shouted he was present, too, but Revolver simply stated "Ignis". Revolver introduced himself as Ryoken Kogami. Shoichi noted Ryoken was Dr. Kogami's son, but the latter explained his father has just passed away, which made Shoichi curse he could not reach to him earlier. Yusaku asked Ryoken, referring to him as Revolver, for more information that they had the right to know about. Ryoken confirmed that, so Yusaku asked the reason behind his actions, if the Lost Incident had been about creating Ignis. Ryoken explained the story about Kiyoshi creating Ignis, about its goal, their evolution, and the prediction Ignis would become an enemy of the humanity. Ai claimed he was not an enemy, but Ryoken did not trust it. Yusaku pointed out Kiyoshi based his views on simulations, and it had no reason to be true. Thus, he asked Ryoken to turn off the Tower of Hanoi to "walk down a new path". He reminded Ryoken about pointing out the three reasons behind actions was Ryoken's idea he passed onto Yusaku during the project. Yusaku admitted he thought that voice had been trapped by the Knights of Hanoi, and wanted to save him. In a way, Ryoken encouraged Yusaku to step forward, an idea the former found ironic. Regardless, Ryoken refused to turn off the Tower of Hanoi. Ai reminded the sixth level of the tower was to be completed soon, and asked of Yusaku to force Ryoken into LINK VRAINS and stop him. Ryoken admitted he was going back to LINK VRAINS, for the sake of his friends, who believed in Ryoken and his father. Ryoken declared the only way to stop the tower was to defeat him, which made Yusaku hesitate a bit. Without further do, the two guys logged into LINK VRAINS. At the top of the Tower of Hanoi. Revolver admitted he would enjoy Dueling against Playmaker, and the two started their final Duel.
Final duel against Playmaker EditRevolver immediately mass-summoned his Dragons to Link Summon "Vorticular Drumgon", and Tributed it for "Link Coin". Ai wondered if that was a move worth using, until he saw Revolver picked "Mirror Force" from his Deck. Playmaker summoned "Linkslayer" and sent a card from his hand to destroy "Mirror Force". Revolver smirked, for the card was actually "Mirror Force Launcher", which allowed Revolver to set that card back and "Mirror Force", too. Ai sensed Revolver researched Playmaker's Deck thoroughly to have anticipated this move. Playmaker Link Summoned "Restoration Point Guard", a move Ai questioned, due to "Mirror Force". Playmaker proceeded to Link Summon "Excode Talker", and have it attack directly, ignoring Ai's warnings. Revolver activated "Mirror Force" to destroy the attacking monster. In return, Playmaker used the monster's Link Material, "Restoration Point Guard", to Special Summon it on the field and attack Revolver directly. The attack pushed Revolver away to 3000 LP. Regardless, Revolver was amused, knowing he would enjoy this Duel with a worthy opponent. Ai counted less than an hour before the tower was finished, and Playmaker agreed with him that the tower had to be stopped. Revolver summoned "Sniffer Dragon", and with Link-3 "Vorticular Drumgon", Ai and Playmaker predicted Revolver would summon a Link-4 monster. Revolver did that, by Link Summoning "Topologic Bomber Dragon". To get rid of Playmaker's "Restoration Point Guard", Revolver revived "Metalrokket Dragon" with "Borrel Regenerator", Special Summoning the said monster to a Zone "Topologic Bomber Dragon" pointed to destroy all Main Monster Zone monsters. Much to Revolver's shock, "Restoration Point Guard" was protected from being destroyed once Revolver Link Summoned his dragon. The latter attacked Playmaker's monster, but Playmaker sent "Rescue Interlacer" to receive no damage. Regardless, Revolver succeeded in giving Playmaker damage equal to the ATK of "Restoration Point Guard", 1000, thus making their LP even. Ai was grateful Playmaker managed to minimize the damage, but Revolver used "Mirror Force Launcher" to take the "Mirror Force" from his GY. Playmaker admitted Revolver made a powerful combo, but noticed a way to break through. He Link Summoned "Transcode Talker" and brought back his "Excode Talker". Revolver's dragon's effect was triggered to destroy all Main Monster Zone monsters, but Playmaker played "Shield Handler" to stop Revolver's dragon's destructive effect from occurring. Revolver was greatly impressed that Playmaker managed to power-up his monsters and protect them from being destroyed. Ai announced an attack from "Transcode Talker", but Playmaker stopped him, for he Link Summoned his third Link Monster, "Powercode Talker". Ai was happy, and believed Playmaker had a chance at winning. The latter attacked and destroyed Revolver's "Magnarokket Dragon". Just as "Transcode Talker" went to attack "Topologic Bomber Dragon", Revolver played "Link Turret", which prevented his dragon's destruction. Revolver took 300 LP damage, and with "Link Turret", he got five counters. While Revolver summoned "Autorokket Dragon", Ai was concerned about those five counters. Revolver noticed the two realized what would happen next, and claimed he fooled Playmaker into his strategy. He revived his "Shelrokket Dragon" and "Metalrokket Dragon" to Link Summon "Miniborrel Dragon". Combined with "Sniffer Dragon" and "Gateway Dragon", Revolver Link Summoned his second ace dragon, "Borreload Dragon". Ai was smug, since they had a monster with a higher ATK. Playmaker saw Ai forgot about that dragon's effect. "Borreload Dragon" lowered the ATK of "Powercode Talker" and took control of "Transcode Talker". Ai grasped his head, remembering the terrifying effect once more. "Topologic Bomber Dragon", powered up by "Transcode Talker", destroyed "Excode Talker", and "Powercode Talker" fell to the same fate by "Transcode Talker", too. Playmaker fell to his knees with 800 LP left, while Revolver told Playmaker there was no new path for him. He reminded they were still chained to their past from ten years ago, and were prisoners of destiny. Thus, Revolver promised he would sever that link. Playmaker gasped, and Ai was sad their defense was broken so easily. Revolver swore to crush them and fulfill his father's wishes. Thus, he promised to show something that was incomprehensible in the Duel. He tributed Playmaker's "Transcode Talker" he took control of to summon "Minivarrel Dragon", and used "Link Turret" to revive his "rokket" monsters from his GY. Ai noted Revolver could summon five "rokket Dragons", but believed that was just a preparation for his next turn. Revolver laughed Ai off, as Playmaker sensed Revolver intended to finish them off in his current turn. Ai doubted that, since Revolver used up his Battle Phase. Revolver used his "Shelrokket", "Metalrokket" and "Minivarrel Dragon" to Link Summon another Link-4 monster, "Varrel Guard Dragon". Ai panicked, since they never faced this "friend" of the "Varrel Load Dragon". Using the latter's effect, Revolver took control of the monster he destroyed in battle, "Powercode Talker". Repeating his tactic, he used the same dragons to Link Summon "Varrel Sword Dragon". Revolver even thanked Playmaker for the opportunity, since he did trigger the effect of "Topologic Bomber Dragon" to let Revolver set the scene up. Revolver sent "Mirror Force", through the effect of "Borrelguard Dragon", to revive "Excode Talker". Ai was surprised Revolver would get rid of his ace card, but Playmaker realized Revolver wanted to summon something else. By removing the final counter from "Link Turret" to revive "Anesthrokket Dragon", Revolver performed a fifth Link Summon. With his Extra Monster Zone co-linked to the Main Monster Zones, Revolver made a final co-link by Link Summoning "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" to the other Extra Monster Zone, thus forming the Extra Link with five Link-4 dragons. With "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" being Extra Linked, Revolver had it destroy Playmaker's cards and inflict 3000 LP damage that could not be negated. Ai screamed at this effect, as Revolver proclaimed Playmaker's end, as the dragon attacked. Much to Revolver's frustration, Playmaker used "Drop Frame Wedge", which quartered the damage. Playmaker took 750 LP damage, and survived with only 50 LP left. Revolver called that a desperate move, considering his monsters could not attack, and if the card would be destroyed, so would be his monsters, too. Revolver reminded Playmaker that the latter said Revolver saved his life, by offering him advice on thinking of three reasons to continue fighting. Revolver pointed out when four turns would be over, he'd annihilate Playmaker, and any attempts the latter would make would be countered. He also reminded the tower would be completed soon and destroy all data. Playmaker was nevertheless hurt, and fell down to exhaustion. Ai's words had gotten to Playmaker as he looked up at Revolver before swearing he also had things to do and barely standing up. Revolver called Playmaker stubborn, and undervalued his efforts since he had few LP left and no cards in his hand. Ai pointed out they could not attack, but was reminded Playmaker could take a severe blow from "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" If he kept a card in his hand. Playmaker set his card. Revolver, however, summoned "Autovarret Dragon", which filled up his Main Monster Zones. He had "Autorokket Dragon" targeted by the effect "Varrel Load Dragon", destroying to destroy Playmaker's set card. Revolver fulfilled his promise to seal away their moves. Playmaker thought it was still a miracle he and Ai were still standing, and confirmed they had to do something, lest they lose. Ai noticed Playmaker was laughing, who thought of nothing else but that to do in their current predicament. He used "Arrow Change" to draw two cards. Ai started to pray for good cards, even if he was reminded by Playmaker that AI-s do not pray. Using "Disconnect Linker", Playmaker took back "Restoration Point Guard" and used it to summon "Secure Gardna" to protect himself, and prevent Revolver's "Topologic" dragons in Extra Monster Zones from attacking. Upon destruction of "Drop Frame Wedge", it briefly rained in LINK VRAINS. Revolver smirked, for he was able to attack from then on. Despite Revolver having seven monsters, Playmaker dared him to take his turn. Revolver knew already that "Secure Gardna" could prevent damage to Playmaker once. Ai shouted they knew that, so Revolver saw Playmaker was counting on something else. Playmaker exclaimed it was his determination to defeat Revolver once and for all. Revolver applauded him for that, since that was what made him a rival, hence why he'd use all his strength, too. Revolver made his offense, by having "Borreload Dragon" target "Secure Gardna", for even if its ATK decreasing effect would not work, it was to prevent Playmaker from activating his set card. Ai was agitated of Revolver's tactics. "Secure Gardna" protected Playmaker's LP, and Playmaker banished "Protection Wizard" to negate his monster's destruction. Revolver's "Borrelsword Dragon" switched the position of "Magnarokket Dragon" to destroy "Anesthrokket Dragon", so it could attack twice. Playmaker swtiched to defense, by banishing "Cluster Congester" and "Secure Gardna" to fill his entire field with "Congester Tokens", which could inflict 1500 LP damage on Revolver if he did not stop them. Revolver destroyed a Token, and dared Playmaker to show his Set card. Much to his dismay, Playmaker's "Transaction Rollback" copied the effect of "Mirror Force" Revolver thought this could've been the case, hence why his Extra Linked "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" stopped his dragons from being destroyed. His dragons destroyed all of Playmaker's Tokens, leaving Playmaker with no cards left on the field. Ai felt tense because of that, but denied he would give up. Playmaker admitted he could not give up, either, but Ai ordered him to stop smiling and become serious, like he always was. Playmaker swore to do so, and bet his victory, his fate of the incident, and the safety of the world on the final draw. Revolver commended Playmaker for stopping his attacks, but claimed he had no chance at winning against his Extra Link. Instead, he ordered Playmaker to give up, since the outcome was clear. Playmaker replied he was always alone, and even if he wanted to change his path, he was unable to; the incident tainted his heart, surrounding it with emptiness. Revolver had no idea what Playmaker was talking about, who pointed out Revolver lived in the same world he did. He also felt compassion towards Playmaker, and went to save him by giving him the advice of three points. Ai believed Playmaker wanted to become Revolver's friend, and that would mean Ai would have to befriend his enemy. Playmaker confirmed this, shocking Ai. Revolver laughed, believing this was a way Playmaker begged for his life. The latter denied this, since he found a circuit of victory. Revolver questioned Playmaker's words, who firmly believed he could win with the card in his hand. He reminded Revolver stated they were prisoners of destiny, without a new path. Standing now, Playmaker believed there actually was a new path. Revolver dared Playmaker to show that, who exclaimed his revenge was over, he would soon overcome the darkness left in his heart, and promised the two of them will start anew. Halving his LP to 13, Playmaker banished "Transaction Rollback" to trigger "Recoded Alive" to bring out "Encode Talker", by banishing "Transcode Talker". Revolver's "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" destroyed cards in their hands, but Playmaker anticipated this, since "Spam Mail" let him draw a card and return one of Revolver's dragons to his hand: the chosen was "Autorokket Dragon". Using "Recoded Alive", Playmaker brought out the banished "Transcode Talker", who summoned "Powercode Talker" back. Finally, using "Encode Talker" and "Swap Cleric", Playmaker Link Summoned "Firewall Dragon" With three of his monsters co-linked, too, Playmaker expanded the Extra Link. Since "Swap Cleric" was used as Link Material, Playmaker drew his final card - "Zero Extra Link", which boosted the ATK of "Transcode Talker", equal to the number of co-liked monsters times 800. Revolver attempted to stop Playmaker with "Link Short", preventing his co-linked monsters from attacking. With a final trick up his sleeve, Playmaker used his Link Monsters to summon "Decode Talker", who was unaffected by Revolver's Trap Card. Revolver questioned this tactic, since "Decode Talker" still had less ATK. Due to "Zero Extra Link", the ATK increase of "Transcode Talker" was passed onto "Decode Talker". Swinging its mighty sword, "Decode Talker" slashed "Borreload Dragon" and defeated Revolver. Revolver fell down, and struggled to raise up. Per the agreement, he promised to stop the tower, but, like during the outcome of his previous Master Duel, swore he would not quit his mission, as long as Ignis remained a threat to the world. The Tower of Hanoi stopped, and Playmaker watched as the data the tower collected was releasing. Ryoken logged out, and Shoichi and Yusaku saw him as he sailed away on his boat. Yusaku knew he'd face Ryoken someday, since he promised to fulfill his destiny.
Saving Baira and the return of Knights of Hanoi EditIn LINK VRAINS, Spectre was told of the "new Playmaker", Soulburner, and his corresponding Ignis, Flame. Spectre was surprised to hear that during the Tower of Hanoi's construction, someone destroyed Cyberse World. The person, Faust, believed the Ignis have fled, and Dr. Genome commented how troublesome that was. Spectre believed Soulburner was also a Lost Incident victim.Revolver walked to the group, who bowed to him, confirming that Soulburner's real name was Takeru Homura. Spectre pointed out no Ignis came to him, but was reminded that the Ignis won't come to him if he was to hunt them down and exterminate them. Faust explained they know the location of Yusaku and Takeru, proposing an action towards them. Varis refused, stating such problems should be resolved through LINK VRAINS, declaring they should be left out in the real world. Since Playmaker was a tough foe, Revolver proposed to simply observe the situation. He believed if the Ignis were to roam free, they'd eventually meet up with the others of their kind, as well as to pursue Bohman, the new foe Playmaker was fighting against. The Knights of Hanoi analyzed Bohman, pointing out this new foe of Playmaker's used the Link Spell. Revolver denied that was a SOL Technologies mercenary, unlike Go, who was just looking for a battle while searching for Ignis. Spectre reminded Soulburner was also a dangerous target, who went with Playmaker through the gate. He did ridicule SOL Technologies for not doing anything about the gate, but did reopen LINK VRAINS. Revolver pointed out the public would not know of such things, and swore to defeat SOL Technologies one day to avenge his father. Revolver stated the gate was opened by an Ignis, thus eliminating SOL Technologies as a suspect. Spectre was nevertheless interested in Blood Shepherd, whom Faust believed to even have some knowledge of Ignis. Revolver denied that, for only he, his father and Ignis themselves know of that. Due to the cyberspace the Ignis created, Revolver feared they were developing much faster, and would become a bigger threat. He felt Playmaker, who was helping Ignis, was also growing, with his Fusion and Ritual Summoning techniques incorporated. Before they went to deal with Playmaker, Revolver asked everyone to come with him.With everyone logged out and regrouped, the group went to prison. Genome sensed the security system was flawed, and was nothing to the code of Tower of Hanoi, even added a virus so they would go undetected. Faust explained the system was set for them to walk unnoticed, for a time, which pleased Ryoken. Ryoken opened a cell, greeting Kyoko, who was imprisoned. Kyoko expressed her gratitude, sensing there was a fight incoming for her to participate in,
which Ryoken confirmed. As the guards noticed Kyoko was gone, Revolver and his crew walked out of the prison, as he declared the return of The Knights of Hanoi.
Facing off with Windy and Lightning EditInside the fake Cyberse World, Revolver appeared and stopped Windy's Data Storm who was about to destroy Playmaker and Ai. Playmaker and Ai were shocked, while Revolver questioned Windy and Lightning If they could've predicted his arrival. With his "Cracking Dragon" and his subordinates, who were destroying the fake world, Revolver announced the continuation of his mission: to kill the Ignises.
Reunion with Playmaker EditPlaymaker expressed his shock, as Revolver reminded he would've returned. Lightning noted he was Dr. Kogami's son, and emitted a beam to strike Revolver, whom Playmaker warned him to run. The latter was unaffected, for Windy reminded Revolver knew of the Ignis algorithm, but Revolver simply replied he assaulted the headquarters, with certain preparations. Ai realized Revolver referred him and Playmaker, who simply wandered in the temple. Revolver explained they found them through the network, and his subordinates helped him invade the base. He swore to finish his father's work, but Lightning claimed they were humanity's successors. Revolver angrily cut the latter off, seeing that they started regrouping, he swore to destroy them. Playmaker tried to talk Revolver down, stating the doom would follow if Revolver executed his plans, reminding that his father told that humans were a problem, too. He simply stated if Revolver started hostilities, the situation would simply escalate. Revolver saw that Playmaker wanted to find a way without hostilities, to keep both sides peaceful. Playmaker confirmed this, stating Revolver did show him a new path to exist. Revolver, however, regretted doing that, just as his father having created the Ignis. Instead, he asked Playmaker why weren't the Ignis finding a way to resolve the situation in a peaceful manner, too. He believed Playmaker was underestimating the Ignis, but Playmaker claimed that blind revenge won't bring prosperity. Revolver didn't listen to Playmaker, for to him, his father's ideas to destroy Ignis was the only thing that motivated him to continue battling. Windy wanted to belittle Revolver's efforts, considering any fact, he wanted to destroy the Ignis. Ai tried to ask of Revolver to set them out first, since they were trapped by the Ignis. Revolver refused, for Ai was also an Ignis, his enemy. Ai replied that he was saving LINK VRAINS with Playmaker, but stopped, when Revolver pointed out that nobody asked them to do that. Revolver turned to Playmaker, exclaiming the Ignis were the threat to the humanity. Playmaker wanted Revolver to think of his own and abandon Dr. Kogami's ideas, for he won't move forward with hatred on his mind. Revolver smiled, reminding Playmaker sought revenge out, too. He reminded if Playmaker stood in his path, he'd be his enemy, too. Windy wanted to test Revolver's' skills, who pointed out there wont be a rematch.
Duel against Windy EditRevolver played "Boot Sector Launch" and summoned two "rokket" monsters, whom he used to Link Summon "Dillingerous Dragon". As Revolver set two cards, Windy noted Revolver wanted to finish him off quickly, noting that Revolver seemed prepared. Windy summoned the Cyberse "Stormrider Griffore" and "Stormrider Hippogriff", using them as materials for "Stormridership Rockbuster". Windy fortified his offence with a "Stormrider Harpiarm" and "Stormrider Turbulence", the latter increasing his monsters' ATK by 300. "Stormridership Rockbuster" destroyed Revolver's set cards, much to the latter's surprise, and Windy was amazed that Revolver set a "Magic Cylinder". Despite the situation, one of Revolver's destroyed cards was "Reverse Engineering" that let him set "Magic Cylinder" back, ready for usage. Windy pointed out he didn't want to battle if he'd take damage, but Revolver claimed he could also have his "Dillingerous Dragon" destroy the monster that didn't attack and take damage equal to its ATK. Windy had "Stormridership Rockbuster" attack, to which Revolver played "Magic Cylinder". To counter that effect, "Harpiarm" switched to Defense Position to negate that attack, Revolver's dragon was destroyed and he took 700 LP damage. Windy sensed that Revolver didn't plan things to go like that, believing Dr. Kogami felt the same way. Revolver was still following his path, despite these obstacles. Revolver took his turn, reviving "Magnarokket" and "Anesthrokket Dragon" from his GY. Chaining their summoning, he revived "Dillingerous Dragon", and used his monsters to Link Summon his ace, "Varrel Load Dragon". He planned to finish Windy off with that monster, who claimed the situation could not be always predicted: "Rockbuster" set Revolver's "Magic Cylinder" to his own field. Revolver exclaimed that tactic won't work, considering he could simply lower his opponent's monster's ATK, and preventing any cards to be activated in that moment. Revolver swore to attack and destroy the Ignises, but Windy pointed out Revolver would be the one to be destroyed. Playing "Stormrider Turbulence", the effects of "Varrel Load Dragon" were negated, and the dragon was forced to fight, for Windy exclaimed Revolver to "hurt himself". Playing "Magic Cylinder", Windy stopped the attack of "Varrel Load Dragon", and Revolver took 3000 LP damage. Windy boasted that Revolver would fail at defeating him. Revolver replied Windy was defective, sloppy AI, to think like that. Windy belittled Revolver, and tried to get him to surrender. He claimed he'd acknowledge Revolver's coexistence, but he'd take control of his mind for that to happen. Revolver understood that if humans didn't consider the Ignis as enemies, the latter won't be so harsh on them. Ai exclaimed that wasn't a peaceful method, but Windy replied it was better than extinction. Revolver pointed out the Ignis know their faults, but didn't understood anything about peace, knowing that they really don't want humans around. Revolver mentioned Windy's partner, and Windy remembered he had one. Ai suspected something happened to him, while Playmaker believed his consciousness data was stolen, much like that of Jin Kusanagi. Revolver stated that he uncovered the participants of Lost Incident project, and found out Windy was involved in a car accident. Revolver pointed out that was the true face of the Ignis, questioning their coexistence with them. Windy blamed Dr. Kogami, who initiated the plan to erase the Ignis. To reverse the situation, Revolver summoned "Speedburst Dragon", and regained some of his LP and damaged Windy by the damage he initially received: 3000. Windy was furious, while Revolver's dragon slashed "Stormridership Rockbuster", and inflicted a hundred LP damage to Windy. Windy bore hatred towards Revolver, who stated his father regretted creating an Ignis that hurt their partner. Windy pretended they were Dr. Kogami's top achievement, but Revolver cut his small-talk, for he also bore his father's regret, as well as his goals. Windy ridiculed Varis, questioning why wasn't he chosen to be a part of the project. He continued to belittle Revolver, thinking his father had no expectations from his son, who came with a plot to destroy the Ignis. Revolver thought of his final moments with his father, and insulted Windy for having bad imaginations, for he'd never understood the family bonds. Windy played "Stormrider Return", Special Summoning the Link Monster that Revolver destroyed earlier. Next, Windy summoned a Data Storm, and boasted about his abilities to control the wind itself. He activated the Storm Access skill, despite being in the middle of the Master Duel. He proceeded to Link Summon, using "Stormrider Harpiarm" and "Stormridership Rockbuster" for the Link-3 "Stormridership Bahamut Bomber". Using the latter's effect, Windy destroyed "Varrel Load Dragon" and inflicted 500 LP damage on Revolver, then destroyed his "Speedbooster Dragon" and inflicted additional 700 LP damage. Windy continued to ridicule Revolver, by playing "Stormrider Skyfisher" and letting Revolver set a card from his GY, but rendering it unusable. Revolver set "Magical Cylinder", which Windy destroyed with his bomber, and lowered Revolver's LP to 100. Finally, Windy returned his "Skyfisher" to his hand. As Revolver's subordinates arrived, Windy yelled at Revolver to go apologize to his father, who wasn't amused by this bad humor. The trio reported that AI they had fought were defeated, which infuriated Windy. The latter doubted in Revolver's victory, since his ace monster was gone. Revolver remained silent, while Spectre, who came with Soulburner inside the temple, warned the Wind Ignis that Revolver was just getting prepared. Revolver was amused to see four Ignis in once place, while Ai, whom Flame freed, became angry at Windy. Windy let Revolver play his final turn, and ridiculed him for not being able to destroy his bomber. Revolver smiled, for Windy couldn't have predicted Revolver's next move. Revolver revived "Anesthrokket Dragon", and summoned "Rokket Synchron", whose effect revived "Speedbooster Dragon", too. Revolver tuned his "Rokket Synchron" with two of his monsters, performing a Synchro Summon of "Varrel Load Savage Dragon". "Varrel Load Savage Dragon" equipped its Link Monster counterpart, and gained four counters, as well as 1500 ATK. Lightning noted that was an unexpected move, which was what annoyed Windy even more. Windy attempted to destroy "Varrel Load Dragon", which was treated as an Equip Spell to win the Duel. Revolver cut Windy's arrogance, for "Varrel Load Savage Dragon" removed one of its counters to negate that effect. Windy panicked, as Revolver declared to pay for his crimes: his dragon fired a beam, destroying "Stormridership Bahamut Bomber", and dropped Windy's LP to zero. Windy was blown away by the attack, and barely muttered Lightning's name. Revolver had his subordinates finish Windy off, who fired digital spikes to impale Windy. Ai shouted at Lightning, who grabbed Windy before he would've been erased.
Revolver commented that Ai shouted for Windy's help. Thus, he deduced Ai was the same as them, who noted the Knights of Hanoi attempted to erase Windy without hesitation. Revolver knew a fight was inevitable, and Lightning agreed with him. Ai tried to reason with Lightning, who summoned Bohman and Haru. Furthermore, he revealed that the silhouette of his partner: Jin Kusanagi, in a new armor shocking everyone.
Declaration of war EditRevolver knew that it was Jin Kusanagi and that process was what Lightning meant by controlling humans. Lightning spared no threat from attempting to do the same to Revolver. Lightning confirmed that he did have Cyberse World attacked. Revolver believed that enabled Lightning to remove the Ignis that thought differently of humans than he did. To that, Lightning simply wished to rebuild the world. He branded Revolver as the enemy, for trying to provoke them, and didn't wish to hear his "smooth talk". Revolver felt that the Ignis didn't even trust of coexistence with humans in the first place. With Playmaker, Soulburner, Lightning and his allies gone, Revolver decided to abstain from the situation, and let the enemies fight each other. In addition, he had his subordinates contact SOL Technologies of the place and give them work.
Ryoken's protection program EditShoichi was cleaning a table when he received a new customer. Shoichi went to serve him, but the customer exclaimed that Playmaker needed his help, and his strength would regress if Shoichi vanished. Yusaku came with Ai, shocked to see that customer was actually is Ryoken. Ai thought the guy came for a hot dog, but Ryoken simply commented that Bohman escaped from Playmaker. He tossed a gift to Yusaku, and to answer Ai, he exclaimed that someone was watching them in the network, and could only personally give him the program. Ryoken believed Yusaku would suffer the attack, like the one made on Jin Kusanagi, and the program should protect him from that offence. Despite Ai's protests, Yusaku installed the program, and Ai noted a powerful algorithm. He did wonder why Ryoken give them this, since they were enemies. Ryoken simply stated with a common enemy, they were allies. He asked of them to survive the fight, since then they would be able to face each other to settle their disputes.
