Truth of the Mask is the twelfth episode of Cardfight!! Vanguard Extra Story -IF- and the 480th episode of the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime.


Emi and Shuka are in an unexpected pinch from encountering Ren, the one who wielded Blaster Dark and used to be drowned in power. However, they manage to escape with the help of Mask the Dark.



  • During the 30-second card intro segment, the ability of "Phantom Blaster Overlord" was explained to need your opponent to have a grade 3 or greater vanguard in order to superior call a card with "Blaster" in its card name.


  • This episode's tentative title was Day of Resurrection (復活の日 Fukkatsu no Hi).
  • This episode's number coincides with Ren's birthday, which is December 12.
  • "Interdimensional Dragon, Chronoscommand Dragon" is mentioned by Emi using it as a first vanguard, then Asaka says it is also a grade 4.
    • While a V-icon.png version does not currently exist, considering that this series holds the concept of different worlds, it could be the original card.
    • Tetsu also adds that Gear Chronicle is said to be a rumor, which only makes sense with the established timeline in Cardfight!! Vanguard: Shinemon.
