When history is about to be falsified, a shockwave is emitted from the sky. Wherever the shockwave passes becomes affected. Changes are made instantly and people's recollection of the previous timeline is erased.
Some people are unaffected. Although they go to the altered timeline, they still have memories of the previous one. The nobles, being the ones who cast the falsification, are unaffected, the Crimson Dragon protects the Signers and people near them by emitting a protective bubble from their Marks of the Dragon, and the members of Team Ragnarok are protected by the Aesirs, whose card forms they possess.
- The disappearance of the mansion Lester took Luna to when he showed her his Duel Board, leaving only an empty patch of land.
- Any memories people had about the time Lester spent at Duel Academy were completely erased, seen when Leo questioned Bob.
After Jack Atlas defeated the Fake Jack Atlas, the seacave where he was captured in disappeared. After Yusei, Sherry and Bruno gained knowledge of Yliaster through Momentum Express, the emperors decided that it was necessary to make some changes. These included:
- Momentum Express was never built and Clark Smith was never born.
- The nobles are entered in the World Racing Grand Prix finals as Team New World.
- Sherry and Elsworth's team is erased from the the World Racing Grand Prix finals, and their place is taken by Team New World.
- An issue of Monthly Duel featuring Team Ragnarok on the cover was changed to feature Team New World.
