Anime debut

Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL episode 112: "Memory Thief: Part 1"


Barian World

The Fearsome Four of the Dark Dueling World are a group of Barians led by Mr. Heartland under Vector and Don Thousand in order to steal the Number cards from Yuma Tsukumo, Shark, and Kite Tenjo.[1]


The "Fearsome Four" were originally a gang of underworld Dueling criminals working under Mr. Heartland. All of them except for Mr. Heartland died tragically and were eventually reincarnated as Barians. Mr. Heartland eventually joined them after falling through a portal and ending up in the Barian Sea.

Later in the series, Heartland was eventually revived by Vector using the power of Don Thousand, though his form was that of a fly. Later on, Vector restored Heartland into his normal human form and summoned the other members of the Fearsome Four to accompany him in his journey to take the "Numbers" from Yuma Tsukumo, Reginald Kastle and Kite Tenjo.


Being Barians, the Fearsome Four have superhuman abilities such as teleporting and taking into alternative forms that give them unique abilities, such as Erazor being capable of stealing memories, Chironex capable of becoming living water and poisoning others and Scritch being able to turn into a mosquito at will. They have also shown the ability to alter a Duel by using a Crest akin to that of Don Thousand's Emblem to halve the opponent's Life Points and add it to their own at the very beginning of the Duel, effectively cheating.
