All thirty three Duelist's finally stepped on board the Arc Cradle. Each decide to go in groups and slip up to cover more ground.
Yusei, Yugi, and Jaden took together and kissed their girlfriends and went one way. Akiza, Alexis, Tea teamed up and went one way as well. Crow and Jack teamed up . Leo, Luna, Rally, and Rebecca formed a team and went down a separate corridor. Tank, Blitz, Nervin, Yanagi, and Bolt all went another way. Joey, Tristen, Mai, Bakura, and Marik formed up. Syrus, Chumley, Atticus, Jesse, Bastion, Zane, and Aster were a team. Carly and Trudge joined together. And that left Chazz and Kaiba and they reluctantly teamed up.
Yusei, Yugi, and Jaden were the first to run into trouble as they ran into Paradox. The three of them fought hard as he used a Malefic Dragon based deck with Dragons from all era's even two from his own time Malefic Time Paradox Dragon and Malefic Truth Dragon. But the three of them pulled through and he was disintegrated in the blast and stopped the first gear.
Akiza, Alexis, and Tea ran into all three versions of Aporia and they each took one on and together the three of them defeated Aporia and his Meklords and stopped the second gear.
Jack and Crow had the misfortune of running I to Sherry and Bruno. But after a long and intense duel they brought them around and the two forfeited the duel and teamed back up with Jack and Crow and this stopped the third and final gear.
Leo, Luna, Rally, and Rebecca took out a group of Z-one's minions and a couple of Meklords as well. Tank, Blitz, Nervin, Yanagi, and Bolt took out more minions and Meklords. The same for Syrus, Chumley, Atticus, Jesse, Bastion, Zane. Kaiba and Chazz were struggling but they found a rhythms and started to really take down the Meklords. Trudge and Carly did well together against a group of minions. Joey, Tristen, Mai, Bakura, and Marik took out large number of the army of Meklords together. But with the army of Meklords reduced to scrap there was Still one more enemy, Z-one himself.
But as they all entered the third Aporia stepped in as well and challenged Zone. Ultimately he lost and died, but before he did he grabbed his duel board and threw at Yusei's Runner. It the merged with the runner and sprouted wings. He died giving Yusei the hope he needed to defeat Zone as they now knew their were ten Timelords. But before he left, to duel Z-one the other 8 signers gave him their dragons. And just before taking off Akiza kissed him goodbye.
"Are you ready to face the full power of a God Yusei Fudo?" Z-one asked
"You're a God?" Yusei asked
"Yes. I'm the reason everything has happened. I caused Zero Reverse so in the hopes that it would change the future. I'm the reason you and you're friends grew up in Satellite. I'm the reason your girlfriend ended up where she was. I'm the reason Sherry lost her parents. Can you not see that I have the powers of a true God. But you. You were always special, no matter what happened you over came it. You always rose to the challenge. You have always exceeded my expectations. But not I will show you that I cannot be defeated and that this "hope" you speak of, that you grasp at. Will not be there." Z-one said
"You're wrong Z-one. You may have done a few things in the hopes that it would change things but we are real. And me and my friends will rip open the doors to a new and brightly colored future with our own hands!" Yusei Shouted
"Pathetic. I'll start us off. And I special summon the Time Maiden!" Z-one said
When I special summon this monster and it's a fairy type it counts for two monsters." Z-one said
"What?" Yusei asked
"I tribute Time Maiden to summon Metaion the Timelord." Z-one said
Metaion the Timelord:
"There it is." Yusei said
"I set one card face down and end my turn." Z-one said
"I can't destroy that Timelord. And if my monster battled Metaion, Metaion's effect returns my monster to my hand, and I take damage. In that case... My Turn!" Yusei said
