In the second event, Kalin lured Jack and Luna into a trap and challenged them to a Tag Duel while Leo watched them.

In the third event, Kalin and the Player encountered Yusei and Akiza Izinski and challenged them to a Tag Duel.

In the end, Kalin had the peace of mind that his friends had grown stronger, and he revealed that he did not succumb to the darkness inside him and was thankful for one last duel. A photo of him, the Player, Crow, Jack and Yusei ended up falling out of his pocket.

Upon completing the story, the Player received three copies of Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu and two personal photos: The first is "Kalin Kessler - Last Duel" and the second is "Kalin Kessler - The Enforcers".
