They found Axel, who believed that no one is capable of defeating the Supreme King, and is still ashamed of himself for running after Jim Crocodile Cook was defeated by him. Maiden of the Aqua and the fairies continued their search. Axel witnessed the remaining members of the Goblin Elite Attack Force release a pack of flaming foxes as hunters in an an attempt to track them down. Axel returned in an attempt to save them, and the Maiden handed him back his Duel Disk. He was unable to defeat the foxes by firing cards at them as he would usually do, as they were the same attribute as the ammo he's using. The Maiden cast a spell that parallels the effect of her card, covering the battlefield in water. The foxes retreat to a small plot of land, and Axel was able to knock them into the water with several "Anchor Bind" cards, defeating them.
Axel still doubted his ability, and the Maiden and fairies depart back to their village - the last one in the dimension yet to fall to The Supreme King. Axel defeats one of the King's minions, and nearly the entire village urged him to accept the role as their commander. Axel finally agreed, and found himself backed by Zane, Aster and a group of freed Duel Spirit prisoners. The Dancing Fairy spirits offered to aide in the search for Jesse Anderson.
