"What Lies Beneath, Part 3", known as "Volcanic Devil VS The Vilest Evil Hero" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and forty-third episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on July 4, 2007 and in the US on May 10, 2008.

Axel draws with The Supreme King and is able to free Jaden at the cost of his own life.


The Dancing Fairies are flying around, questioning anyone they meet for any information about Jesse Anderson. They believe that if Jaden Yuki hears that Jesse is still alive, he may be able to fight the darkness in his heart. In The Supreme King's castle, Zane Truesdale's Duel with Chaos Sorcerer is in progress. Chaos Sorcerer Summons "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" and destroys Zane's "Cyberdark Dragon" decreasing his Life Points to 3800. Further in the castle, Aster Phoenix has been reduced to 500 Life Points in his own Duel against Skilled Dark Magician and Skilled White Magician who both have 2100 Life Points. He Summons "Destiny Hero - Plasma". The magicians counter by activating "End of the World", Tributing themselves to Ritual Summon "Demise, King of Armageddon".

In the throne room, Axel Brodie's Duel with The Supreme King is underway. During the Duel, the Eye of Orichalcum activates and Axel determines that if he wins this Duel, he may be able to rescue Jaden from himself and pierce the darkness around his heart. Elsewhere, Syrus Truesdale and Ojama Yellow are at the village, and the Dancing Fairies question whether they've seen Jesse, as they took Axel's request to "ask everyone" literally. Ojama Yellow, eager to impress them, claims he has seen him. Upon learning that Axel is Dueling The Supreme King, Syrus Summons "Kiteroid" and uses it to fly towards the castle.

Zane wins his Duel with Chaos Sorcerer by Summoning "Cyber End Dragon" and using it to destroy "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" (Chaos Sorceror only had 500 Life Points left at that point). Syrus and Ojama Yellow arrive, and the three hurry onward. Aster defeats his own opponents using "D - Force" to protect himself from "Demise, King of Armageddon's" effect and "Destiny Hero - Plasma" and "Plasma Counter" to destroy it (depleting the remainder of the Magicians' Life Points). They proceed to the throne room, where The Supreme King has Axel cornered. Axel manages to end the Duel in a draw, and as he does, he rushes at the Supreme King with the Eye of Orichalcum, which glows a brilliant red once more. With his Life Points at 0, the Eye penetrates the King's mind and the spirit of Jim Crocodile Cook is able to free Jaden.

Axel claims that the Supreme King inside Jaden's mind is destroyed, but Axel himself collapses and fades away. With the prophecy fulfilled, the Eye of Orichalcum shatters and the comet in the sky glows the same brilliant red. Zane throws the helmet of The Supreme King off the tower, telling his army that he is gone. The army flees, and the group escapes aboard "Cyberdark Dragon", leaving Guardian Baou as the only remaining Duelist of Death. Jaden is still unconscious, and they allow him to rest before they ask him questions. Ojama Yellow realizes that he was the one who claimed Jesse was still alive, but then realizes that he actually did see him briefly, though his eyes were not normal (they were Yubel's orange color).

They attempt to activate its effect, but Aster has "D - Force" in the top of his Deck, so "Destiny Hero - Plasma" negates the effect.

Axel Brodie vs. The Supreme King

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 3: Axel

Turn 4: Supreme King

Turn 5: Axel

Turn 6: Supreme King

Turn 7: Axel

Turn 8: Supreme King

  • Special Summons "Evil Hero Infernal Prodigy" (300/600) with its effect since he has no monsters out on the field.
  • Tributes it to Summon "Evil Hero Malicious Edge" (2600/1800) with its effect, as it only requires one Tribute when the opponent controls a monster. This also activates "Infernal Prodigy's" effect, letting him draw a card. He draws "Super Polymerization".
  • Equips "Vicious Claw" to "Malicious Edge", giving it 300 more ATK. In addition if "Malicious Edge" would be destroyed, "Vicious Claw" goes back to his hand instead and a monster other than the one "Malicious Edge" battled will be destroyed while inflicting 600 damage to Axel. Also after that an "Evil Token" will be Summoned to Axel's side of the field.
  • Attacks "Volcanic Hammerer", but he can only attack "Volcanic Doomfire", due to the latter card's effect (Supreme King 100).
  • "Vicious Claw's" effect lets it get destroyed in place of "Malicious Edge" Then, it is returned to his hand. Because of "Vicious Claw's" other effect, Volcanic Hammerer is destroyed and 600 damage is inflicted to Axel (Axel 500). An "Evil Token" (2500/2500) is then Special Summoned in Attack Position to Axel's side of the field.
  • Activates his face-down "Evil Blast" to increase the ATK of the "Evil Token" by 500 (3000/2500) and inflict 500 damage to Axel in each of his Standby Phases.
  • Sets a card.
