Just as Aichi and his friends are surrounded by more Reversed fighters, Teams Asteroid and Avengers appear. They fend off the Reversed fighters while Aichi and Ren go together to face Reversed Takuto, who has revealed himself as being an agent of Link Joker. They meet on the rooftop of Tatsunagi HQ, where the agent states that he has completely absorbed the original Takuto and has gotten stronger from doing so. He further explains that the world will end once the gate floating above them fully opens. Then, Kai appears and challenges Ren. And so, the two wage battle as Aichi and the agent observe, with Kai returning to his Kagero deck. As the cardfight ensues, Ren expresses his enlightenment in fighting against Kai while showing signs of his former sadistic self when he was possessed by Psyqualia. Kai responds by forewarning Ren's defeat once his true power is unleashed.
