In the second part of the quarter-finals comes the awaited match between Sakyo Kurayami and Captain Arrow. While both Bladers move to their respective Zero-G Stadium platforms, Captain Arrow introduces himself. With his own Beyblade, the Defense-Type Archer Wyvang 145WB, Arrow intends to easily win this battle after he reveals at how he is also a DNA Blader.

Dark Knight Dragooon LW160BSF is already recieving barrage attacks by Archer Wyvang, while Sakyo remains as calm as ever. More smashes originate here and there that it seems that Arrow has already figured out the path to victory. This is evident when he already unleashes a Special Move, "Arrow Tornado". An immediate torando of wind bursts out and throws Dragooon away, despite Benkei's comments that Kyoya had made better tornados in his days.

Blader Gai then announces the last match of the quarter-finals that will then culminate into the "Best 4". The battle will be compromised as Zero Kurogane versus Takanosuke Shishiya.
Zero and Takanosuke are quite happy that they will be facing each-other, both who have been in the best of training to fight. The launch of their Beyblades comes in as Samurai Ifraid W145CF faces against Archer Gryph C145S. Ifraid and Gryph share their first signs of contact that already give off harsh recoil. They do not despair and are still keeping their focus on the Beyblades when Archer Gryph barrages Samurai Ifraid, similar to Sakyo and Arrow's fight.
Zero obtains scruples as a result as Ifraid just sits there helplessly being ravaged by the griffon. With his dogged attempt to meet his idol in the form of Gingka Hagane, Zero will not stand down by any means. To keep with this he activates his signature move, Burning Upper. The katana-weidling ifrit bursts out simulatenously when Samurai Ifraid emits a blazing aura. Takanosuke is distraught when Zero has his Beyblade smack Archer Gryph to the other side of the Zero-G Stadium.
Takanosuke, undergoing a distraught that leads him to believe that he has ran out of luck.

His cries become the fuel for his Beyblade when it relives itself from Ifraid's Special Move and heads back into the battlefield. Everyone, Zero, including the audience were surprised by how quick Takanosuke recovered from that potential move that would have costed him the win. Now that both opponents are more serious than ever, Samurai Ifraid and Archer Gryph clash in an epic battle charged by their owner's determination.
Both acknowledge only onw can win, both fight to their full potential and both are beginning to lose it. The Bladers shout out for more cries and the calling out of their Bey's names.

Creating a violet triangle, he summons the beast of Archer Gryph as it fights with Samurai Ifraid. Zero tries to counter this by using Burning Upper again, where the ifrit and the griffon go at it in one last clash. Just as this happens, an immediate explosion of light comes out and when the mist clears, Samurai Ifraid is left in spin while Archer Gryph had succumb to an out-spin.
