Both members walk up to the arena but Benkei and Demure both walk up to the arena. This causes confusion with the audience. Yu then jumps down from the audience and says that he will battle alongside Tsubasa, making it a Double Match.
The Match begins and it seems as if Gan Gan Galaxy is winning. Demure analyses Earth Eagle and he and Benkei use amazing tactics to outwit Tsubasa.

The Eagle beast transforms into a black dragon-like bird, which swirls around the stadium, frightening all of the audience, and leaving Hikaru traumatised. Eagle then knocks every Beyblade in the stadium out, leaving him in a maniacal state. Tsubasa also destroys the stadium due to the dark power. Gan Gan Galaxy wins and move up in the World Championships. Tsubasa then collapses on the ground.
Tsubasa 's darkness reaches maximum level which sends him to hospital.
