The start of Shun Kurosaki vs Sora. Reiji activates a special Action Field for their duel, "Futuristic Metropolis Heartland." The sight of the city stirs memories in Shun, who accuses Sora of attacking him and his friends. Sora has no idea what he's talking about and just tries to have fun dueling, but Shun keeps the pressure on and destroys Sora's Fusion Monsters.
This episode contains examples of:
- Berserk Button: Kurosaki nearly explodes with rage when the Action Field is revealed. (Exactly why is explained later.)
- Grey and Black Morality: Kurosaki vs Sora.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: Sora is clearly treating the duel like a show for most of the episode, while Kurosaki is serious from the beginning.
- "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Kurosaki appears as an In-Universe one, refusing to do the traditional pre-battle dialogue.
- Wham Line: The Action Field used for the duel is Futuristic Metropolis Heartland. Yes, Heartland. It's our first hint to what's really going on.
