"A Dimensional Duel", known as "Gem Beasts VS Cyber End Dragon" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and twenty-eighth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on March 21, 2007 and in the US on November 22, 2007.
With the "Rainbow Dragon" tablet fully excavated, Maximillion Pegasus dons a Duel Disk-like device and headset that features painting tools, so that he can create the card. Jaden Yuki arrives at the site where the Sacred Beasts were sealed, but finds he is too late - Marcel Bonaparte is gone and has taken the cards. Upon returning to Duel Academy, he's informed by the spirit of Lyman Banner that everyone else has gone to the tennis courts. He hurries there, avoiding Duel Ghouls, including Dr. Crowler, on the way.
With the card art completed, Pegasus sends the data to Dr. Eisenstein so that the card can be made. Zane Truesdale and Jesse Anderson begin their Duel in order to harness enough Duel energy to send the card through the wormhole. Jesse is able to see Zane through a videoscreen, while a hologram appears that allows Zane to see Jesse. When their monsters attacks, the attacks go right through the wormhole into the other side. Axel Brodie and Tyranno Hassleberry leave to stand guard at the entrance to the tennis courts, to prevent any Duel Ghouls from entering. When Zane deals 1600 damage to Jesse with "Cyberdark Dragon", the sky in the alternate dimension begins to darken as the wormhole widens. Both sides are rallied on, Jesse by Zane's skills and Zane by Jesse's taunting, and both cause the other a significant amount of damage.
Jaden gets corned by Duel Ghouls, but is saved by Vice-Chancellor Bonaparte, who tells him to use the underground pipelines to get to the tennis courts. Bonaparte goes to distract the Duel Ghouls, and tells Jaden to save his son. Back at the Duel, more Duel Ghouls attempt to break down the door. Axel and Hassleberry exit the gym so that there will be no interference in Jesse and Zane's Duel. The Duel Ghouls Summon a variety of monsters to attack them, while Axel and Hassleberry use the size of the corridor to their advantage, as Hassleberry Summons "Black Stego" block their advance, while Axel uses "Flaming Barbed Wire" in offense.
Zane and Jesse don't finish their Duel, as the wormhole widens enough before they finish. The card was sealed in a capsule, which was placed in a missile. It's fired into the wormhole via a fighter jet. The connection with Eisenstein is cut, and he is only able to tell them to give the card "tremendous power". The Duel Ghouls bust through the door as Axel and Hassleberry rejoin them. The Duel Ghouls block every exit, but Jaden arrives, busting a hole in the ground with "Elemental Hero Neos". They escape and Marcel contacts them and tells Jaden that he has thirty minutes to get to him. If he does not reach him in time, Marcel will kill all of the Duel Ghouls. However, he wagers that if Jaden wins, he'll release them from his control. He also plays the "House of Sand" card and a pyramid-like building rises from the sand, which he intends to use as the site for his confrontation with Jaden.

Featured Duel: Zane Truesdale vs. Jesse Anderson
Turn 1: Zane
Zane activates "Graceful Charity", drawing three cards and discarding "Cyber Phoenix" and "Cyber Ouroboros". He then Summons "Proto-Cyber Dragon" (1100/600) in attack position, and activates "Overload Fusion", removing "Proto-Cyber Dragon", "Cyber Phoenix" and "Cyber Ouroboros" from play to Fusion Summon "Chimeratech Overdragon" (2400/2400). Next, he activates "Cyber Ouroboros'" [Notes 1] effect; as it's removed from play, he can discard "Infernal Dragon" to draw a card. Finally, he activates "Future Fusion", sending three "Cyber Dragons" from his Deck to the Graveyard to Fusion Summon "Cyber End Dragon" in two turns.
Turn 2: Jesse
Jesse Summons "Crystal Beast Amethyst Cat" (1200/400) and equips it with "Crystal Release", increasing its ATK by 800 (2000/400). He then activates "Amethyst Cat's" effect, halving its ATK to attack Zane directly (Zane 3000) and Sets a card.
Turn 3: Zane
Zane activates "Polymerization", fusing "Cyberdark Horn", "Cyberdark Edge" and "Cyberdark Keel" into "Cyberdark Dragon" (1000/1000). He then activates it's effect, treating "Infernal Dragon" in the Graveyard as an Equip Spell Card and increasing its "Cyberdark Dragon's" ATK by "Infernal Dragon's" (3000/1000). "Cyberdark Dragon" also gains 100 ATK for every monster in Zane's Graveyard (3600/1000). "Cyberdark Dragon" then attacks "Amethyst Cat" (Jesse 2400), activating its effect to send it to Jesse's Spell & Trap Card Zone when destroyed, but Jesse activates "Crystal Release'" effect, allowing him to place one Crystal Beast in his Spell & Trap Card Zone when it is destroyed. He selects "Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle". Zane then attacks directly with "Chimeratech Overdragon", which can attack three times since three Fusion Material Monsters were used, but Jesse activates his Set "Crystal Pair". Since a Crystal Beast was destroyed in battle, Jesse can send a Crystal Beast to his Spell & Trap Card Zone to reduce Battle Damage to 0. He selects "Crystal Beast Emerald Tortoise".
Turn 4: Jesse
Jesse Summons "Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus" (1800/1200) in attack position and activates its effect to sends a Crystal Beast to the Spell & Trap Card Zone. He chooses "Crystal Beast Amber Mammoth". He then activates "Ruby Carbuncle's" effect, Special Summoning it and as many Crystal Beasts as possible from the Spell & Trap Card Zone. He Sets two cards.
Turn 5: Zane
Since there have been two Standby Phases since "Future Fusion" activated, Zane Special Summons "Cyber End Dragon" (4000/2800). Jesse then activates his Set "Gem Fortress". The ATK or all Crystal Beasts on the field becomes 1000 and no monster that has ATK less than or equal to the combined ATK can attack, but Zane equips "Cyber End Dragon" with "Power Load"; by skipping the Battle Phase of his other Machine-Type monsters the equipped monster gains 400 ATK for each attack skipped. With "Chimeratech Overdragon's" three attacks and "Cyberdark Dragon's" one, "Cyber End" gains 1600 ATK (5600/4000). As its ATK is now above 5000, "Gem Fortress" is invalid. He then attacks "Mammoth", but Jesse activates his Set "Amber Crystal Circle". Since "Mammoth" is chosen as an attack target, Jesse can increase its ATK by the ATK of every other Crystal Beast on the field. (5600/1600)
At this point, the two monsters should have been destroyed; however, since they were battling between dimensions, the two monsters disrupted the connection and the Duel ended at this point. A winner was not intended as the energy was used to transfer "Rainbow Dragon" to the other world.
The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
- When Jesse activates "Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle"'s effect, the light from the tail gem is shown coming from higher up then Ruby's actual tail.
- ↑ In the TCG/OCG, the effect of "Cyber Ouroboros" is optional and would therefore miss the timing because it was removed from play before the Fusion Summon occurred.
