Zeo and Dr. Ziggurat visit Toby before the final round, and when Zeo leaves, Dr. Ziggurat takes Toby out of the hospital. Gingka and the others visit Tsubasa and Yu, promising them they are going to win. Back at HD Academy, Team Star Breaker go into the Arrangement System, but Zeo stops at 92% because of the pain. Dr. Ziggurat warns Zeo that he will cut off Toby's medical treatment if he loses the next battle, riling him. Before they go out to battle, Gingka tells Masamune that he will battle Zeo, as it would be too hard for him to face him. However, Masamune says that he has to because he wants to know why Zeo is mad at him, so Gingka lets him. Masamune and Zeo battle in the first round with both wanting to become number 1. Ray Striker D125CS starts attacking Flame Byxis 230WD. Zeo uses his special move, Destiny Needle, and starts controlling Striker. Zeo tries to make Striker have a stadium out, but Masamune sends Ray Striker into the air to attack Byxis from above. Masamune tells Zeo that he's going to become number 1 for Toby, and Zeo remembers that he can not lose and activates a button on his belt. Flame Byxis starts to spin faster, and Zeo's Arrangement Index starts to increase. Masamune uses his special move, Lightning Sword Flash, but Zeo exclaims that if he doesn't win, Toby will die. Masamune pulls back in shock. Once his Arrangement Index had reached 100%, Zeo uses his second special move, Magnetic Needle Storm, sending Ray Striker out of the stadium and knocking Masamune to the ground. Zeo wins the first round and passes out from the power. Dr. Ziggurat remarks that he has passed this test and that he can rest easy...for now. Ryo and Hikaru have now confirmed that Dr. Ziggurat is up to something, and Gingka is more determined than ever to win the next battle. Ryuga is shown to be standing outside the town, about to enter.
