Go To

Yuya, Gongenzaka, Sawatari, and Tsukikage engage in a Battle Royale in the Volcano Field.

As Yuya and Sawatari duke it out in an intense Entertainment Duel, Yuya suddenly regains memories about the Duels in the Synchro Dimension. What are the meanings of those memories, and what exactly is Reiji’s true motive?

This episode contains the following tropes:

  • The Atoner: Himika has become this when she saw Reira sacrificing himself to save reality, deeply regretting how she treated him.

    • Yuya recalls the events that unfolded during the Lancers' journey through the dimensions, from Riding Duels, to his confrontation with Edo, and arrives to the conclusion that he was searching for a certain "someone". In other words, Yuzu.
    • Shuzo eventually recalls Yuzu as he approaches her room, and informs everyone in the Junior Youth Championship that Yuzu is missing.
  • Flashback: A lot of the episode is Yuya regaining his memories as seen in quick flashbacks.

  • Heroic BSoD: Yuya hesitates as he recalls, on top of Yuzu, his time in the Fusion Dimension, from his confrontation against Leo, to his moments as Zarc. He drops to his knees as he realizes that he IS Zarc.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Reiji reveals that at the last second, Reira pushed Ray out of his body and sealed Zarc inside of him.

  • One-Hit Polykill: Gongenzaka defeats both Sawatari and Tsukikage to end the duel faster.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: A lighthearted example. Gongenzaka prevents Tsukikage and Sawatari from defeating Yuya, not because they are friends, but because he claims that only he has the privilege to take Yuya down.

  • Wham Line:
    Yuya: I am... ZARC!
  • Wham Shot: A shot of Supreme King Dragon Zarc appearing in the background as Yuya drops to his knees.
