Also, while using this kind of power, Fender is able to Duel without a Duel Gazer. Instead, his left eye changes to red.
Fender led a gang of thugs, who successfully robbed a large sum of money from an armored car. Fender mentioned he wanted more power. Girag appeared from a portal and teleported his way through Fender's thugs, avoiding their attacks. When he reached Fender, Fender punched him in the face, but Girag shrugged it off as if nothing had happened. Hoisting Fender by the neck, he threw him to the ground. Using a card, "Rank-Up-Magic Barian's Force", Girag promised him great power and hypnotized him and his thugs. He ordered Fender to find Yuma Tsukumo. To that end, he Dueled and defeated Yuma's friends, Bronk Stone, Cathy Katherine, Caswell Francis and Flip Turner at Heartland Academy. Taking Bronk's Duel Gazer, he contacted Yuma and Yuma came to him. They began a Duel, with Fender using "Barian's Force" to evolve "Mechequipped Angineer" to "CXyz Mechquipped Djinn Angeneral", pushing Yuma into a corner.. However, after an appearance by Tori Meadows and the reappearance of Astral, Yuma was able to win via a combo of "Number C39: Utopia Ray" and "Numbers Impact". Despite the loss, Fender informed Yuma that his gang would arrive at school soon, but Shark and Kite Tenjo arrived, saying that they defeated the gang by themselves before arriving at school, much to Fender's surprise. Fender was then electrocuted and knocked out by Orbital 7, undoing Girag's brainwashing in the process.
