The Dragon's Punishment is the 42nd episode of Beyblade: Metal Fusion. It aired on January 8, 2011.
After losing the battle with Gingka in the first round, Yu complains to Doji that the battle had ended without any fun. Doji says that all who have lost in the first round must make up for it and that the same goes for Yu as well. The losers in the first round must battle Ryuga and give him more power. Yu says that Ryuga was his friend and he wouldn't do such a thing. Meanwhile, Ryuga is battling with Tetsuya, Tobio and others who had lost. He wins it and gets more power by absorbing the other Bey's energy. Doji says that if Yu wins a battle with Reiji, he can be free from Dark Nebula. Yu agrees and battles. He uses a lot of attacking moves but they don't seem to have any effect on Poison Serpent. He slowly loses all his stamina and Poison Serpent grinds the fusion wheel of Libra. Ryuga comes at the top floor and watches the battle. Yu turns to Ryuga for help, but Ryuga turns away. Yu thinks of Gingka and then uses all of his power for one last finishing move there's a huge explosion.
