The World Duel Carnival, where Duelists from around the world will wage heated battles, is swiftly approaching. Yuma, after not getting a heart piece in the mail, tells his friends about it, and Caswell asks Yuma if he signed up. He tried, but it turned out the sign-ups had closed. Yuma freaks out, and Shark nearly runs him over as he ran out of the school. He bid farewell to Yuma, and notices a strange man in a building. Shark goes up there, to find it was Quattro, his opponent from the round Shark was disqualified. Quatttro points out that being afraid of losing wasn't the only reason he cheat, also because he had promised his sister in the hospital that he would win. Quattro also gives Shark Mirror Force, and said he set Shark up, knowing that he was desperate. When he left, Shark threw Mirror Force onto the road and left it there. Meanwhile, Mr. Heartland and Kite make their preparations to gather the Numbers that are likely to be assembled before them in this tournament. Yuma goes to Heartland City with his friends, and he begged the guards to be let into the World Duel Carnival (WDC) for several hours, before Kite found out, recognized him, and told Mr. Heartland to include him in the WDC, denying any knowledge of Yuma.

Yuma's first opponent in the WDC is the soccer kid, Striker. Striker transforms the surrounding with his Field Spell Card "Stadium of Dreams", as the Duel kicks off. With his "Offside Trap", Striker brilliantly seals Yuma's strategies, while his teammate monsters use teamwork to frantically keep beating Yuma up with a combo of offense and defense and with such sheer strength, it seems as if Striker's victory is all but decided. Then, Caswell finally recognized Striker after his brothers are seen watching him duel, and he said that he used to like soccer, but teamwork kept messing him up, so he quit, saying he was over with soccer. Yuma said he definitely wasn't over with it, his cards said so. After Yuma beat Striker, his brothers said that he could be on the team again, which he happily accepted. Striker thanked Yuma for helping him realize the values of teamwork.

Whilst at a construction site looking for more opponents, Yuma and Tori are nearly run over by a bulldozer by Cody Callum, who Yuma mistakes for a kindergartener due to his height. Cody challenges Yuma to a duel after finding out that they both were in the duel carnival with his Heavy Industry Deck. Cody tells Yuma that he loves machines because of how giant they are, because he was picked on for his small size, and that all big ones have more power. As the noise from Cody's ace monster, Digvorzhak, King of Heavy Industry makes it hard for Yuma to hear Astral's instructions, so Astral speaks to Yuma telepathically. Learning how even a tiny bolt helps keep aloft mighty machinery, Yuma manages to use his low level monster to take down Digvorzhak and win the duel. Yuma points out machines are held together by small parts, and Cody says he'll remember that. One of the workers catches them there and shoos them off the construction site before Cody's dad, who worked there, found out.

Anna proves to be trouble with her Railway Deck, especially when she summons a Rank 10 Xyz Monster, Super Dreadnought Rail Cannon Gustav Max. Anna said that Yuma was afraid of heights, and he said he was never, causing Tori to think that something was going on. Yuma summons his new Xyz Monster, Temtempo the Percussion Djinn, and manages to use his traps to turn Anna's overwhelming firepower against her and win.

Yuma challenges him to a duel, which Tombo makes into a 'Vegetable Death Match', in which players have to eat a vegetable whenever they attack. This proves to be a tricky rule for Yuma as he hates tomatoes, especially since most of the vegetables in Yuma's barrel are tomatoes or tomato hybrids, leaving many opportunities to attack pass by. After some pushing from Tori, Yuma finally gives in and eats a tomato-carrot hybrid, coming to like it, and wins the duel with his Xyz Monster, Melomelody the Brass Djinn.

Roscoe challenges Cat to a duel, because she insulted him, in which the fate of both cats and dogs will be decided. Roscoe summons out his Xyz Monster, Sumo King Dog, but Cat manages to survive his attack and summon Cat Girl Magician.

Yuma learns from Quattro about how Kite is gathering Numbers to cure Hart's illness, very accurate to Astral and Yuma's guess, and Yuma asked him (Kite) why he didn't tell him about Hart. Trey summons his Number card, Number 33: Chronomaly Machu Mech while Yuma summons Utopia, surprising not only Quattro, who earlier thought Yuma had no chance of winning because he had no numbers, but Trey and Quinton (who, while overseeing the ritual Vetrix is performing to gain Hart's power, is watching the duel on a screen) as well. However, Quattro then summons out Number 15: Gimmick Puppet Giant Grinder to destroy Utopia, but Yuma manages to protect Kite from his attack.

Just then, the figure of Kazuma from inside of Yuma's Key uses the power of Yuma's Numbers to break the power of Trey's Crest and recover Yuma's memories. After learning of Astral's death, Yuma tries to deny it by saying it was one of the lies Trey put in his head, before bursting into tears.
