Several bladers challenge GanGan Galaxy but are easily defeat, this is when Julian appeared to challenge the team to face Team Excalibur.
Sophie joined with Wales in easily countering nearly all of the teams attacks. Sophie and Wales continued to fight until Masamune and Gingka were able to break through, only to be easily defeated by Julian's special move, forcing GanGan Galaxy to leave in shame and defeat.Team Excalibur went on to enter the Semi-Finals if they were able to defeat the Wild Card Team, Team Wang Hu Zhong. They battle at home in Europe against the Chinese teams, and in the first match Sophie teams with Wales to face Chao Xin and Mei Mei of Wang Hu Zhong.

A Broken SwordTeam Excalibur returns to Julian's mansion for training, Sophie and Wales are able to defeat Klaus in a handicap training match but are too occupied to find that Tsubasa has tried to battle Julian. They catch wind of this and stop Tsubasa until they are confronted by a mysterious Beyblader named Ryuga, causing everyone to separate.

Though he is not distracted by this in his next match with Wales against Tsubasa and Yu Tendo.
Sophie and Wales easily take an early lead against their two combatants, this forces Tsubasa to bring out a second personality through his dark power. Through his recklessness he becomes easy prey for the duo until he regains his sanity and breaks out a new special move that is able to pierce Sophie and Wales defenses, defeating them simultaneously.
Even though they suffered their first defeat, Sophie and Wales easily put their faith in Julian who faces Gingka Hagane in the final match.

Even after being defeated, Sophie and Wales try to convince Julian to leave Hades. He refuses and is confronted by Dashan Wang, who was unable to battle during the match against Wang Hu Zhong. Dashan battles Julian and gains the upper hand, before Julian repeats his humiliation, Sophie and Wales are able to convince Julian to build a new Team Excalibur, though he is still defeated by Dashan.
