Cards from Episode 85 [GO RUSH!!]

There is way too much memeposting going on in this episode’s cards.

スイングバイ・アタック Swing-by Attack
Normal Spell Card
【EFFECT】 Choose face-up 1 monster on each side with the same Level. During this turn, your monster chosen by this effect can attack directly.

Note: This card is referencing the concept of a Gravity Assist Maneuver, i.e. a Swing-by maneuver.

ダークネス・ジョインテック・タイラント Darkness Jointech Tyrant
Level 7 DARK Machine Effect Monster
ATK 2500
【REQUIREMENT】 During the turn this card is Normal Summoned, if you do not control a face-up “Jointech Nestrider Tank”.
【EFFECT】 Choose up to 2 Level 7 or higher monsters in your GY and add it to the hand, then, until the end of the turn, this card’s name becomes “Jointech Nestrider Tank”.

フェイクネッツゾーン Fake Net Zone
Normal Spell Card
【REQUIREMENT】 If there is a Level 4 or lower monster(s) in either GY, send all 4 or more cards from your hand to the GY.
【EFFECT】 Return all Level 4 or lower monsters in the GYs to their owner’s Decks, then, you can draw cards [equal to the number of Level 7 or higher monsters sent to the GY for this effect’s requirement].

Note: This card is a play on Shinjitsu Netsuzo’s name (“Net Zo” sound close to his name). Netsuzo means “To fabricate/fake”.

メチャンコ・フュージョン Mechanko Fusion (Xztreme Fusion)
Normal Spell Card
【REQUIREMENT】 If your opponent controls a face-up Level 7 or higher monster.
【EFFECT】 Fusion Summon by sending face-up monsters you control to the GY as material, also, during this turn, the monster Special Summoned by this effect gains 700 ATK.

Note: Mechanko is basically slang for something extreme/big/great/amazing/terrible. Basically hyperbole. So I’d suggest going for Xtremely Kool Letterz.

7のツキ Nana no Tsuki (The Seventh Month)
Normal Spell Card
【REQUIREMENT】 Send 1 to 2 Level 7 monsters from the hand to the GY.
【EFFECT】 Choose up Spell/Trap Cards your opponent controls up to [The number of monsters sent to the GY for this effect’s requirement] and destroy them. If you sent 2 monsters to the GY for this effect’s requirement, then, you can draw 1 card.

Note: This is a reference to Nostradamus’ famous King of Terror prophecy which claims the King will appear in the 7th month of the Year 1999. Considering it’s Nomurandamas’s soul card of sorts, uuuuuh. I think this is self explanatory. “But why isn’t it Moon”. Moon is how Japan writes Month. Month is just warped from an older word for Moon.

バクハンスド・アセンション Bakuhanced Ascension (Blasthanced Ascension)
Field Spell Card
【REQUIREMENT】 If your opponent controls a Level 7 or higher monster(s).
【EFFECT】 While this card is face-up in a Field Zone, players can Normal Summon Level 7 or higher monsters while there are no Level 4 or lower monsters in their GY.

アビスカイト・レイ・モノクローム Abysskite Ray Monochrome
Normal Trap Card
【REQUIREMENT】 When an opponent’s monster declares an attack.
【EFFECT】 Choose a total of 3 Level 4 or lower monsters among the GYs and shuffle them back into the Deck, then, the attacking monster loses 200 ATK x [The total Levels of the monsters returned by this effect] until the end of the turn.

Note: I’m pretty sure the card is a play on Tremolo’s name. (Te Ra Mo Ro)

トランザム・プライム・アーマーノヴァ Transamu Praime Armornova
Level 8 LIGHT Galaxy Effect Monster
ATK 2500
DEF 1600
You can also Tribute Summon this card in Attack Position using either 1 or 3 monsters as Tributes. If you Tribute 1 monster this way, this card’s original ATK becomes 1800.
【CONTINUOUS EFFECT】 This card Normal Summoned by Tributing 3 monsters gains 100 ATK x [The total original Levels of the monsters Tributed for this card’s Normal Summmoned].

    Of all the characters in GO RUSH, never expect Abysskite support from Kuaidul.

    At the same time:

    – If you look closely at the artwork of Xztreme Fusion, you will notice silhouettes of Damamu.

    – Likewise, Blasthanced Ascension has hints of being an Asaka Card (it even has “Blast” in the name)

    – Transamu Praime Armornova seems to be the LIGHT version of Darkness Transamu Craisis (same Level and similar Effects)

    Blasthanced Ascension is a pretty funny card to deckbuild around.

    Yeah, I was wondering why Nomura’s card focused on the number 7 when most of his other cards dealt with the number 6. I knew it was a reference, but I didn’t get it until now.
    Praime Armornova is pretty much the monster version of Kuaidul. Same blonde “hair” styled in the same way, the green jewel on his chest, the white plated clothing with hands exposed, the green sword.
    This gives me some hope that Yudias will get his own Effect version of this card (Transamu + Overwrite don’t count as neither has a 3-Tribute effect, and Darkness was when he was possessed). Gaining ATK by sacrificing the people he used as cards is very fitting. I would imagine a Yudias version doing the opposite – supporting the cards/people he would Tribute instead; he hates the idea of “sacrificing” others. He only lost to Kuaidul because he refused to trample over his friends; Reminiscence’s effect + Oblivion on board + destroying Tridynabase by battle was considered at one point in the episode. I like the idea of monsters gaining effects based on Tributes, and this coming full circle with Episode 2 (how Yudias only accepted Tribute Summon by his comrades entrusting him with their will to win).
    Kuaidul’s other new cards are pretty much references to the individual in question. Netsuzo’s is an inverse to Bakuro’s, who sends his monsters (most of whom are low leveled) from his hand or Deck to the GY so he can recover or Special Summon them later. Fake news (Tribute Summoning by not having low leveled monsters in the GY or even using Tributes at all) would be the opposite of real news (standard GY resource manipulation). Asaka’s is a Field Spell that lets her Tribute Summon her high leveled Wyrms without wasting hand advantage (keeping the other Wyrms in her hand instead of summoning and Tributing them), which she needs for some of her monsters’ effects. Damamu’s is a reference to their love for fusion as well as both their on screen Fusions increasing their ATK in some way. Yuhi’s is a reference to both his Jointechs that like to recover his other monsters from GY to hand, as well as Tama Bond name treating his monster as another to be used as Fusion material. Tremolo’s is a name pun but also his Trap cards usually protecting his Okeabyss from battle destruction – lowering the opponent’s ATK by using their own GY against them.

      There may be some truth to having an ascended Transamu Monster that reflects Yudias since the next Anime pack is called “Transamu of Transcendence”.

      That or it’s the long-awaited Monster Fusion between Transamu Rainac and Galactica Oblivion.
