"Primo's Plan, Part 1", known as "Ghost Flood! The Terrifying Battle Royal Mode" in the Japanese version, is the one-hundredth and sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on April 21, 2010 and in the US on May 21, 2011.
Primo unleashes the Diablo in New Domino City, causing havoc by challenging Turbo Duelists and making them crash. In order to try to put and end to this, Yusei and the others burst themselves into Battle Royal duels.
5D's and Catastrophe's Duel aftermath
With this win. The MC announces that 5D’s automatically enter the finals of the tournament. After this, Nicholas asks Jack why he’d saved him. To that Jack answers that he didn’t deserve to die in the first place and worst, not even to duel because he uses cards of darkness instead of believing in his own cards.
However, with Team Catastrophe losing, Primo unleashes an army of Duelbots called "Diablo" to cause havoc on New Domino City. Back at the stadium, Sherry approaches Nicholas asking where did he got the Doom’s Ray card. She then takes his Deck and looks at the card which suddenly erases its name, effect and image.
The Diablo begin to infiltrate and disperse themselves on the Highway where the duels from the WRGP are taking place. Eventually, some of the robots arrive at the site where the duel between Team White Tiger against Team Lightning is taking place.
To begin, the robots surround the duelist belonging to Team White Tiger saying that they’ll join the duel. Automatically the system is changed into Battle Royal Mode. With this, 2 of the Ghost’s easily defeat him and then another Ghost proceeds to challenge as well to defeat the Team Lightning member.
After this, Primo states that the WRGP tournament has been changed into Battle Royal. He implies that if Turbo Duelists want to live now that their fates are at stake on these duels, they better complete the Grand Design.
Back at the stadium, the MC announces to everyone about crashes occurring on the Highway during duels. Later, Mina and Trudge investigate what’s going on, as Yusei and the others arrive to where they are an Sector Security operator tells Trudge that the Highway’s Turbo Dueling system has been changed into Battle Royal Mode.
The operator also says that there’s a strange signal which he tries to identify. Upon determining its location, Yusei and the others are shocked to see that the signal comes from Ghost. To that Sherry and Elsworth arrive, Yusei says that Ghost has appeared again and everyone wonders why of this but Bruno states that the army of Ghosts can only mean that Yliaster is trying to destroy the tournament.
Yusei then proposes to everyone to fight together against the Shadow Duel’s Ghost uses. Thus because the Ghosts are many to fight against, Yusei states that they must find the individual who is controlling them. To that idea Sherry and Elsworth will join them.
At that time, Kaz appears saying that he will also join them. Trudge then warms them to be careful, because of the Battle Royal mode. Yusei also adds that in a duel against Ghost, real damage towards the players will occur and so that they can’t afford to take the situation lightly. After this, Yusei and everyone else finally travel to the Highway.
Jakob states that they need the Ener-D’s strength for that, meaning that they need the Duel Runner’s Ener-D, despite that the world doesn’t know about its true power. Jakob reveals that when the Circuit is finally completed, the location of a God shall be revealed.
Lester says that because the Circuit itself is as big as New Domino City, when it forms the city itself will be destroyed. Even if it’s a small sacrifice according to Jakob, they are doing this in order to save the future. At that moment, images of Ghosts appear, to what Lester states that they are the Diablo.
Jakob identifies them as being the robots that Primo created; to what Lester reveals that he unleashed them to do something big. To this matter, Jakob isn’t pleased at all.
Stopping the Diablo
The Ghosts are surprised as Yusei, Sherry and Elsworth arrive, as the female turbo duelist drops out from the duel, Yusei joins the duel and summons Stardust Dragon. With it, he defeats one of the Ghosts.
At another location, Ghost attacks another duelist directly with Clausolas, at the moment Kaz and Jack both appear. As Kaz directs the damage towards him with his Battle Eater, Jack proceeds to assault the Ghost with Red Dragon Archfiend and inflicts major damage with it.
Back at the Highway, Primo notices that 4 more Ghosts were defeated, wondering if Yusei is behind this. Jakob then appears to him asking about what Primo thinks he is doing. To that, Primo denotes that he isn’t satisfied with Jakob’s methods of completing the Circuit.
So Primo instead is forcing duels thinking that this will speed up the process. However Jakob denotes that this method is useless because it can’t bring out the duelist's potential and because of this, the Circuit can’t be truly completed.
Lester then bothers Placido saying that he better listen to Jakob, as the one who stands in his way is Yusei, to whom Primo already has lost to. After Primo cuts the conversation because of this comment, he states that it will show Yusei that he can’t win against him.
The Diablo's onslaught
At another location, Jack and Kaz are facing 4 Ghosts. However, the robots strangely separate themselves from them into other riding lanes. At the stadium, Mina and Trudge notice that every Ghost is acting strangely and that they are in fact moving towards one sole point.
Meanwhile at the Highway, Yusei defeats another robot with Stardust. Thinking that it’s over soon, Yusei, Sherry and Elsworth discover that various Ghosts are after them. To this, it is revealed that Primo planned to send the army of robots against them.
Finally, 1 of the robots begins the Battle Royal duel against them with an Infinity symbol appearing before the duel commences. Yusei warns to Sherry and Elsworth to be careful as the Ghost has forced the duel on them.
Thus the 3 of them at the beginning are successfully able to defeat 2 robots, things get complicated as Primo intends to defeat Yusei with his army.
Because of this, the Ghosts get more aggressive, up to the point of easily defeating Elsworth by using 3 Cosmic Gateway. Following him, Sherry is their next target and they take her out firstly by destroying chevalier de Fleur with a combination of Ally Salvo and DNA Transplant.
In the end while defenseless, all of the Ghost’s attack her with their own Ally Salvo’s.
With Sherry gone, Yusei is left all alone to fight the horde of robots.

The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
- Speed Warrior and Road Warrior still appear on the field after they were destroyed by the effect of Ally Salvo. This was on the DVD version of the episode and in the dub, in the original airing, Road Warrior isn't present, but Speed Warrior wasn't there either.
- In the English version, when the Ghost that plays "Release & Rebirth" uses its effect to tribute "Ally of Justice Nullfier" for its effect, he mistakenly says he is tributing "Ally of Justice Garadholg" for its effect. This is an error because if he tributed "Ally of Justice Garadholg" then he wouldn't have any monsters on his field to attack with.
- When Yusei summoned "Swift Scarecrow" via the effect of "Junk Synchron", it was summoned in Attack Position instead of Defense Position.
- When Sherry and Elsworth arrive at the car park where Officer Trudge is discussing the highway disruptions with the others, Elsworth is on Sherry's left. When Kaz arrives, Elsworth and his Duel Runner are seen on Sherry and her Runner's right. This mistake was corrected on the Japanese DVD version of the episode and in the dub.
- When Kaz got hit by "Ally of Justice Clausolas", his life points went down to 1500 instead of 1700, since the attack of "Ally of Justice Clausolas" is 2300.
- In the dub, Yusei says "Road Fighter" instead of "Road Warrior". However, he did the same in episode 45, this is to prevent any copyright to Road warrior.
