The fortieth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Double Drive.

After enduring Shunta's attack, Kazuya brings out another of the FourDemonLord Ultimates.

Summary Edit

With Reactive Barrier, Kazuya prevents Shunta from taking all his lives. Still, everyone believes Shunta is more likely to win. Bram-Zand was already destroyed. On top of that, Shunta's life is still four, and he has both his Imagine Brave and 12 God-Kings remaining. On Shunta's next turn, he brings out Revol-Tiger, and activates Double Drive. Once again, Kazuya uses magic which stops Shunta from cutting away all his lives, at least with his God-Kings. Shunta refuses to give up, and continues attacking just to get rid of Kazuya's remaining blockers. And with Jaguaredge, which remains, he can then aim for Kazuya's life. But Kazuya has magic to destroy Jaguaredge and prevent this as well.

As Shunta still plans to win on his next turn, Kazuya declares that he won't get another turn. He states that the time Shunta defeated him, Shunta stole away everything he had. To Kazuya, winning in Battle Spirits was his only hope. Shunta is just confused by this, but Kazuya goes on to say that now he plans to steal everything precious to Shunta. At that, he brings out The Hellwind FourDemonLord Vandiel. With this card's Soul Drive, he's able to bring out three more Ultimates at no cost. These are Ultimate-Saviour, Ultimate-Siegwurm-Nova and Ultimate-Sagitto-Apollodragon. Although Shunta is able to stop one attack, he's unaware of Vandiel's other effect. That is, whenever an Ultimate decreases the life, another life is taken. As Kazuya finishes Shunta, he asks him how it feels to have everything he's built up taken away from him. Still, Kazuya believes Shunta's despair now can't even compare to his own.

Because Shunta lost, Exeseed and Revol-Tiger go to Kazuya. He keeps them, but is surprised that he's not really satisfied and thinks that he doesn't actually need them.

While Eto starts to heal Shunta, Shishi appears. She declares that the resurrection of the Evil God-King is even closer, as she knows the location of the last two 12 God-Kings, the dog and snake. It's shown that currently, Yoroi is pursuing the dog. Overhearing this, Inui is annoyed that she didn't tell anyone. Shishi leaves with Kazuya, leaving the others to ponder over who she even is.
