This weekend, 5D’s fans can tune in to see the finale of Yusei’s Duel against the Guard Robot, the Counter Trap wielding security robot sent to prevent Yusei from retrieving his stolen engine program. The Guard Robot’s strategy is based around calculating every move Yusei makes based on his previous Duels, and using Counter Traps to stop them.
Counter Traps are a special type of Trap Card. They’re used to cancel out your opponent’s moves. Most of them negate something your opponent does, but a few of them just make your opponent do something they don’t want to, like discard cards that they just drew.
