"Eyes on the Prize", known as "Duelists of the Rune Eye" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and twenty-third episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on August 18, 2010 and in the United States on June 25, 2011.
The next opponent for Team 5D's is Team Ragnarok, who wield the Rune Eyes, serving as the proof of their status as the successors of the "Aesir". When Team 5D's encounter them, Halldor takes the opportunity to explain the story behind the "Aesirs" and how the members of Team Ragnarok came to obtain them.
Yusei then asks the three members of Team Ragnarok to help expose the plot of Team New World. However, Halldor declines, claiming that the "Aesir" are not willing to enter an alliance with the Crimson Dragon's Signers, believing Yusei to be cursed because Dr. Fudo caused Zero Reverse. The enmity between Dragan and Jack is also explored, as the two had Dueled in the past, only for Dragan to be forced to lose on purpose by Lazar and Rex Goodwin in order to raise money for his father's hospitalization.
Team Ragnarok challenges Team 5D's in tomorrow's semifinal match, where the winner earns the right to face Team New World.
Turn 2: Dragan Dragan draws. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Jack's SPC: 0 → 1; Dragan's SPC: 0 → 1). He then Normal Summons "Garmr of the Nordic Beasts" (4/800/1900) in Attack Position and Sets a card.
Turn 3: Jack
Jack draws "Tuner's Reflect". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Jack's SPC: 1 → 2; Dragan's SPC: 1 → 2). Jack then Normal Summons "Power Breaker" (4/1900/0) in Attack Position. He then tunes "Power Breaker" with "Top Runner" in order to Synchro Summon "Red Dragon Archfiend" (8/3000/2000) in Attack Position. "Red Dragon Archfiend" attacks "Garmr". Dragan is about to activate his face-down "Nordic Relic Brisingamen" (which would have won him the Duel), but he chooses not to. "Red Dragon Archfiend" then destroys "Garmr of the Nordic Beasts" (Dragan 4000 → 1800).
The rest of the Duel is not shown, but Dragan lost the Duel.
Differences in adaptations
In the dub, the Nordic God Cards' attribute and types are the same as in the OCG/TCG.
Due to the dub skipping over ten episodes, the plot implies [[Team New World] had always been in the WRGP (as opposed to a timeline change) and Team Ragnarok was the second opponent of Team 5D's.
The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
