The next day, Sherry and Elsworth set off a dummy bomb at HQ, causing everyone to evacuate. When they lock the building down, Yusei and Bruno are left inside, and they soon discover the two. As Bruno follows after Sherry, Elsworth blocks Yusei off, and challenges him to a duel. Elsworth summons his Driven Daredevil, which does great damage to Yusei during his counterattack. Sherry reaches the main computer, hoping to find out the meaning behind her card, but starts fighting Bruno when he shows up. Just then, Bruno's eyes start glowing red and he overpowers Sherry. Noticing her card, he stops attacking and helps her to analyze it. Yusei summons Stardust Dragon and beats Elsworth with a counter trap, and the two catch up to Sherry and Bruno. As the card is scanned, purple clouds form in the sky and Sherry, Bruno, and Yusei are caught in the blast. They find themselves in a strange white room where they are scanned painfully by Z-ONE, and then pass out from the pain. Afterwards, the computer room self destructs.

Crow is later approached by Trudge and Mina, who believe Pearson's death was caused by a duelist using a card called, Crimson Mephist, that dealt real damage, and sent people to the Netherworld. Crow goes to see another of his old friends, Bolton, to ask about the accident. Bolton agrees to talk, but only if Crow duels him, wanting the Black-Winged Dragon card he needs for a loan should he win, even though Crow doesn't know where it is.

Primo becomes agitated and joins the duel himself. Bruno teaches Yusei about Accel Synchro, about how Ener-D powers through people's hearts and the Clear Mind that can control it. Taking these things into account, Yusei accelerates to top speed and is able to see a new monster. Bruno, who had lost his memory after previously battling Primo, stays behind to duel him again. Meanwhile, Yusei arrives at a crater, where another stone tablet has landed. Upon touching it, he is transported to the white room he had went to before, and receives an Accel Synchro card. Upon seeing that Yusei had received a tablet from Z-ONE, Lester panics and tells Jakob that since the tablet didn't belong to any one of them, he asks him what is going on. Lester also becomes jealous and upset, because only the Emperors of Yliaster were supposed to receive tablets, but Yusei was only a "puny human," and Lester refuses to believe that Yusei was as special as they were. But Jakob remains silent and continues watching the duel. Primo brings out his Machine Emperor Wisel Infinity, and Bruno summons the materials for his Accel Synchro, but is hindered by the arrival of the Ghosts. After learning that Yusei had received a tablet, Jakob warns Primo not to duel Yusei, as he cannot guarantee him victory this time, with Lester presaging evidence. Then, Jakob demands Primo to return at once. Having been fed up by his partners bossing him around, Primo bangs his hand against his viewscreen, and cuts of the communication, which causes Jakob to shout, "But, Primo--!" Seeing that Primo had disobeyed orders again, Jakob tells Lester that the outcome of this duel "is the will of God."

Then, the rest of Machine Emperor Wisel collapse onto Primo and explode, causing Primo to scream as he loses the rest of his life points. Having been defeated, Primo crashes into the wall on the dueling lane, and his body splits off his duel runner, and he falls into a coma. Jack, Crow, Yusei and Vizor find themselves facing Lester and Jakob, who reveal themselves to be the emperors of Yliaster, who have come to pick up Primo, in order to have him repaired by Z-ONE. They claim that Yliaster is an organization created by their God, Z-ONE, to set the future on the right path whenever humans "alter" it, especially after it was altered by the creation of Ener-D, with a plan to destroy New Domino City. Sherry and Elsworth arrive and attack Jakob and Lester, but are overpowered. Jakob then receives his tablet, granting him Machine Emperor Grannel Infinity.

Yusei and Bruno enter a "warped" dimension in the future, and pass by a strange island (a gigantic, floating, upside-down "metallic fortress", the Ark Cradle), where Yusei is briefly visited again by his father, who warns him of an Ener-D that will destroy mankind, before returning him and Bruno to their homeworld (the Present).

They also spot the strange metallic island, the Ark Cradle, coming through an interdimensional "hole" in the sky,which only Signers and people from Team Ragnarok can see, along with people that come into physical contact with them. When they try returning to the Ener-D Express, they discover that it has disappeared (as Yliaster's actions have also erased that company from existence). They later return to find the Yliaster trio joining the WRGP, and that Sherry's team had vanished from the roster (in other words, Sherry was "kicked out" of the WRGP, with Yliaster replacing her team), coming to the conclusion that Yliaster had managed to alter history. When Trudge and Mina inform the others that the WRGP may be cancelled following the recent incidents, Lazar decides to take the position of director in order to overturn the situation. Meanwhile, Sherry wakes up in a strange dimension where she meets a strange being in the form of her father, who is really Z-ONE who has taken the form of her father, offers to show her the future of the world. Z-ONE warns Sherry that seeing the future would change her destiny forever (because the vision would convince her to join Z-ONE), but Sherry replies that she doesn't care, and that she still wants to see the future, as she states that knowing the future ahead of time would benefit her, and her friends. Then, Z-ONE proceeds to show her the future.|
