"The Villainous Vector - Battle in the Demonic Domain of Sargasso!" is the ninety-sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. It first aired in Japan on March 24, 2013.

When the Different Dimension Airship reaches "Sargasso", Yuma and the gang run into the Barians who are a part of Vector's gang. With Yuma's anger at his very limits, Yuma begins a Duel against Vector. Meanwhile, Kite duels Misael, while Shark ends up dueling Durbe! "Sargasso" is actually a planned Field Spell Card called "Ancient Battlefield of the Different Dimension - Sargasso", that slowly whittles away at Yuma, Kite, and Shark's Life Points. Yuma, already suffering mentally and physically, suffers an even greater blow when Vector reveals a shocking truth!

Summary

After taking damage from the effect of "Sargasso", Yuma, Shark, and Kite learn that the field they are playing on is a face-up Field Spell called "Ancient Battlefield of the Different Dimension - Sargasso". Yuma & Shark end there turn and take damage from "Sargasso". The Duel moves on as Vector begins his turn and quickly Summons his "Number", "Number 104: Masquerade Magician - Shining" He then sends "Sargasso's Lighthouse" from his hand to the Graveyard by its own effect. As long as it is in the Graveyard, he will take no damage from the effect of "Sargasso". In a different Duel, Durbe begins his turn and quickly Summons an Xyz monster, "Number 102: Holy Lightning - Glorious Halo" and sending "Sargasso's Lighthouse" to his Graveyard in the process. In another Duel still, Kite takes damage from "Sargasso" for an Xyz Summon he performed, but manages to Summon his ace, "Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon" in doing so. When Misael Summons "Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon", he takes damage from "Sargasso" because he wants to determine the true Galaxy-Eyes master by becoming in equal terms with Kite.

Yuma begins his turn, eager to win the Duel and save Rei. Yuma is about to activate "Rank-Up Magic - Limited Barian's Force" when Astral stops him, telling him to calm down, also telling him that this Duel feels strange and that they should be more careful. Ignoring Astral's warning, Yuma activates "Rank-Up Magic - Limited Barian's Force" to Summon "Number C39: Utopia Ray V". Yuma attacks Vector with "Utopia Ray V", only to find that Vector has suddenly vanished.

Believing that the attack had destroyed Vector, Rei suddenly awakens and tells Yuma that he is well and not to worry. Suddenly, Rei laughs in an uncharacteristic manner and reveals that he is actually Vector. He states that "Rei Shingetsu" is actually his human form and that he was with Yuma all along from the moment he met "Rei". The appearances of Rei in his previous Duel with Vector had all been an illusion.

This devastates Yuma and Astral, now knowing that Rei was a Barian Emperor and that they had all been fooled. Vector continues to taunt Yuma by mockingly saluting him and calling him "Detective Yuma". Yuma is infuriated and continues his attack but is quickly countered by Vector who activates "Vain - Sneer of Betrayal" to send all of Yuma's "V" cards to the Graveyard, then milling cards from Yuma's Deck until there are only three cards left.
