Shortly after, he is challenged by a young boy named "Ace". Not only is Ace's corporation trying to take over the Kiba foundation, but he has also tricked Shion's uncle Utsugi into stealing the sword for him. With much at stake, Shion cardfights Ace, both using decks made out of cards pulled from random booster packs. When Shion sees the sword shining in Utsugi's hands, he loses both his fighting spirit and the battle. Ace later reveals that their fight was captured on video to smear Shion's credibility as Kiba heir, the glowing sword was a mere trick, and Utsugi was working with Ace all along.

Misaki sympathizes with her after having experienced the same feelings that Tokoha is going through. When Misaki was pondering what to do with her life after graduating from high school, she saw an event where two boys have a touching reunion through Vanguard. It was that moment in which Misaki knew what she wanted to do: to watch over Card Capital, believing card shops are precious places of chance meetings where people can become friends and continue to build relationships.

Before the last fight, Naoki tells TRY3 that the Planet Cray really exists and to ask Kamui for more information.

The group is then confronted by the person in charge of this facility, the crazy Kensuke Handa. He separates Kamui from his friends and challenges him to a cardfight.

However, instead of participating, players can instead choose to be "creatures" to stop TRY3 and special guest Rummy Labyrinth from completing this quest and be handsomely rewarded if successful. This naturally makes all the other fighters want to become creatures, thus making TRY3 and Rummy Labyrinth the only participants in the quest. As the quest goes on, Tokoha, Shion, and Am all decide to stay behind to let their respective teammates Chrono and Luna make their way to the top. As they both reached the top before the time limit expired, there is a final fight between Chrono and Luna. Meanwhile, Shion fights Am and confirms that she is Ace. In the end, despite Luna's strong feelings, Chrono wins and awakens his last Depend Card in the process. With that, TRY3 complete all of the G Quests with a perfect record.

As a grand finale, there is a special match arranged for TRY3 to face a "dream team" selected by the Vanguard Association. During the time before the match, Shion tells his teammates that Am is Ace, which makes Tokoha want to learn why she is working with Myoujin. Later, the day of the special match arrives, and TRY3's opponent is revealed to be Team Q4, consisting of Misaki, Kamui, and Kai. Behind the scenes, Kouji and his comrades begin "GIRS Crisis", a plan that will ultimately locate Myoujin.

"Kessen! Chīmu Q4 Tokoha VS Misaki" (決戦けっせん!チームQ4 トコカVSミサキ)

The match of TRY3 vs. Q4 bears another meaning for TRY3; if Chrono and his teammates cannot beat Q4, then they will not be allowed to face Myoujin. The first game pits Tokoha against Misaki, who is using her Tsukuyomi deck.

"Kurono VS Kamui" (クロノVSカムイ)
April 3, 2016
The last game of the special match is Chrono vs. Kamui. Chrono intends to surpass Kamui, who acted as his mentor the whole time.

Backstage, Shion and Tokoha confront Am and try to convince her to stop working for Myoujin, but Shouma Shinonome suddenly shows up before them. After Shouma reveals how he was involved in the Kiba takeover, thereby revealing his affiliation with Myoujin, Shion furiously starts pummeling him. Kouji appears and stops Shion, and after some taunting from Shouma, he leaves with Am. As the cardfight between Chrono and Kamui reaches its climax, the countdown to GIRS Crisis begins.

"Giāzu Kuraishisu" (ギアーズクライシス)
April 10, 2016
Just as Chrono delivers the finishing blow to Kamui, GIRS Crisis commences.

Shortly after the members of TRY3 celebrate their victory over Q4, Kouji informs them that they will soon infiltrate Ryuzu's lab. However, Ryuzu prepares for them...
