21. Breaking Through! Zone Hammer!

Group B's first match was about to begin. Aria was currently in her room training for her Battle against Joy. Apocalypse was racing around the stadium with a dark aura around them.

'I've beaten her before and I can beat her again! I'm stronger than ever in fact.... I'll annihilate her and that terrible Bey of hers!!'

Just then the announcer went off. "The first Battle of Group B is about to begin! I hope you're all excited about this battle, this one's going to be a good one! Can we get Aria and Joy to the stadium please?"

Aria picked up her Bey from the stadium and then walked out of her waiting room when she heard Tom's voice. If Aria won this battle she would be one step closer to making it to the Semi-Finals.

"Alright! Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Starting us off in Group B is the girl that always takes a chance, Joy and her Bey Judgement Joker going up against the girl surrounded in darkness, Aria and her Bey Prime Apocalypse!" The announcer said.

Aria and Joy arrive at the stadium. Joy happily smiled at Aria while Aria just looked at Joy.

"We finally get our rematch! Hope your ready Aria, because I'm going to win this one!" Joy said as she showed off her Judgement Joker to Aria.

Aria stayed silent and attached her Bey to her launcher. 'I'm going to beat you in the First Battle.'

"One strike and this battle will be over!" Aria said as she showed off her Apocalypse.

Both Aria and Joy got into position. "Bladers! Get ready and set!" The referee yelled.

"Three! Two! One! Let it Rip!" Everyone yelled. With that both Bey's land on the stadium.

Joker races around the stadium, while Apocalypse... was crashing into the walls? Did Aria make a mis-launch? Aria smiles when she sees her Bey crashing into the wall.

Apocalypse kept crashing into the walls of the stadium. Apocalypse was starting to lose speed from hitting the walls. Just then for the first time, the center of Apocalypse turns red. Aria lets out an evil grin and her eyes turn a bright purplish black. Apocalypse then sped up on its own thanks to Prime Reboot. Apocalypse races off from the upper deck and towards Joker.

Joy smiles. "Here's our chance Joker! Use Fate's Judgement!"

Aria smirked, her plan was all coming together. "Now! Omega Blast!!"

The two Beys collide causing a massive whirlwind to stirrup. Joker gets sent flying up in the air due to the whirlwind and burst into pieces. Joy gasp seeing her precious Bey burst before her eyes.

"Prime Apocalypse with a Burst Finish!! With a final score of 2-0, Aria is the winner!" The referee declared.

"Aria has just gotten her third point making her one step closing to making it to the Finals!" The crowd cheered as Adagio stands up from the stands and heads off to face off with Phoebe.

Before she can leave however Sonata stops her. "Adagio! Good luck out there! I just know you can beat Phoebe! If Aria could do it then so can you! Don't forget about our promise, we're going to battle in the Finals with each other!" Sonata smiled.

"Don't worry, Sonata." Adagio said with a smile. "I'll be sure to win against Phoebe no matter what!"

Adagio and Phoebe arrive at the stadium. Phoebe and Adagio both smile at each other and show off their Beys to each other.

"Hope your ready Adagio, because I plan on winning. My losing streak has got to end somewhere and sadly for you it's going to end here." Phoebe said as she showed off her Harmony Pegasus.

Adagio looked at Phoebe with a smirk. "Sorry, Phoebe. But your losing streak is going to continue. I'm going to win and then take a step closing to make it to the Finals. I promised someone I would battle them in the Finals and I plan on making it happen."

Phoebe smiled. "We'll see about that!"

Both girls get into position. "Bladers! Get ready and set!"

"Three! Two! One! Let it Rip!" Everyone yelled. With that both Pegasus and Achilles take to the stadium.

Achilles was in Stamina Mode without the Unison Sword equipped to it. Pegasus and Achilles collide in the center and start their head-to-head collision with one another. Both then let go of their collision and climb onto the upper deck and speed up.

"Now Pegasus! Harmonic Thunder!" Phoebe yelled.

"Get it there with Unison Breaker!" Adagio yelled.

Both Beys slam into each other and both go flying. Both Bey's land on the ground at almost the exact same time. Both Bladers look at the ref and wait for the call.

"Harmony Pegasus with a Ring Out Finish! One point is rewarded to Phoebe, making the score 1-0." The referee said.

The crowd cheers while both Phoebe and Adagio pick up their Beys. Adagio changes Achilles into Attack Mode and she equipped the Unison Sword increasing its speed and power.

Phoebe said as she smiled at Adagio. "This battle will be our last!"

Adagio smiled back. "I could say the same! Me and Achilles are going to burst Pegasus!"

The two got into position. "Bladers! Get ready and set!"

"Three! Two! One! Let it Rip!" Everyone yelled.

Both Beys take to the stadium with powerful launches. Pegasus quickly and swiftly takes the center while Achilles pounces at it with a volley of agile attacks. Achilles kept pummeling Pegasus with a bunch of strikes that the yellow wings appeared. Adagio smiles and Achilles rises to the upper deck.

Adagio smirked. "Now take Pegasus out with Unison Sword!"

"Reverse Heal!" Phoebe countered.

Achilles hits Pegasus sending it flying. Pegasus's wings revert back in but when it hits the walls to the upper deck, the wings immediately come back out again! Phoebe gasp in surprise while Adagio smiles, Adagio had come up with a loophole to beat the wings! Achilles was now on Pegasus's tail about to strike it down, but Phoebe wasn't going to let that happen.

Phoebe smirked. "Knock it out of here with Feather Storm!"

Pegasus creates a storm and the storm carries Achilles lifting it off the ground. Achilles goes flying and hits the wall of the stadium, it then bounces off the wall and into the air right above Pegasus!

Adagio smiles brightly. "Now Achilles! Ride the storm with Unison Breaker!"

Achilles slashes through the storm and crashes into Pegasus. Pegasus and Achilles then both go sent flying! Pegasus burst in midair while Achilles hits the ground. Phoebe gasps as Adagio smiles as she grabs her Bey.

"Union Achilles with a Burst Finish! With a final score of 2-1, Adagio wins!" The referee declared.

"Adagio wins her match making her a step closer to making it to the Semi-Finals!" The crowd cheered as Adagio and Phoebe shake hands and leave the stadium.

Adagio, Aria, and Sonata were all just one point away from moving on to the Semi-Finals. With Gabby being the only one to move on in Group A, there was only one more spot in Group A left, while Group B still had two free spots. Things seemed to finally be changing for the better and it looked like all the Dazzlings could be moving on to the Semi-Finals. However, not all good things last for long.

Bael's and Leon's First Battle was currently underway. Balkesh was currently taking all of Luinor's attacks like they were nothing. Balkesh's defense was so tough that not even the fast-heavy attacker Luinor couldn't even deal damage to it.

"Luinor's assault on Balkesh isn't stopping, but no matter how hard he pushes Luinor's just ain't doing any good. Luinor is now starting to slow down is this the end of Luinor?" The announcer announced.

Luinor used every ounce of energy it had left and attacked Balkesh but no matter, Balkesh just didn't budge. Luinor then ran out of energy and grinned to a halt.

"Dusk Balkesh with a Survivor Finish! With a score of 1-0, Bael is in the lead!" The referee said.

The crowd cheers for Bael as he and Leon pick up their Beys. Leon looks at Luinor and then he smiles. He had a plan and Bael had no clue what was about to hit him. Bael just smiles and attaches his Bey to his launcher.

The two boys then got into position. "Bladers! Get ready and set!"

"Three! Two! One! Let it Rip!" Everyone yelled.

Balkesh and Luinor take to the stadium, and Balkesh takes center stage while Luinor instantly strikes it down. Luinor deals some fierce blows to Balkesh that it actually starts doing some damage. Leon smiles while Bael starts to feel the pressure. Leon ramped up his launch power to make his attack power even stronger.

"End this match with Zone Slam!" Leon yelled.

"Not on my watch! Balkesh unleash Dusk Circle!" Bael yelled.

Luinor hits Balkesh creating Balkesh to turn into a perfect circle. Luinor's rampage begins all over again from the first battle and Luinor starts delivering a barrage of attacks on Balkesh. However, Balkesh just blocks all of them as if they were nothing.

"Send it flying, Luinor!" Leon declared.

Luinor hits Balkesh making it go out of the center and onto the upper deck. Leon smiles but then he sees Bael smiling. Bael was up to something but Leon didn't know what. Balkesh then speeds up on the upper deck and charges down toward Leon. Leon's eyes widen, that's what Bael was planning. A counterattack!

Bael smirked. "Balkesh! End this match and Luinor with Dusk Crash!"

Balkesh slams into Luinor causing it to go flying. Luinor hits the wall of the stadium, but instead of slowing down... something else happened. Luinor bounces off the wall and full-on charges toward Balkesh. Bael gasp in shock as Luinor lit up.

Leon smirked. "Tear it into pieces, Luinor! Zone Hammer!"

Luinor comes in and deals the final blow to Balkesh. A huge explosion happens to cause everyone to cover their eyes. Balkesh gets thrown up in the air and burst. The blow was so hard it made Bael lose his balance and fall to the ground.

"Zone Luinor with a Burst Finish! Final scoring of 2-1, Leon is your winner!" The referee declared.

The crowd cheers for Leon as he picks up his Bey with a smile. Bael gets back up and grabs his Bey. He was ashamed of losing but he tried his best. Up in the stands, the Dazzlings were confused as to the events that just occurred.

"Hey, Arctic. Do you mind telling us what went down in that battle?" Adagio asked looking over at Arctic.

"Luinor aligned with his metal components causing it to gain a surge in power. Leon let his Bey get hit on purpose so that he could unlock what he called Zone Hammer." Arctic said as he thought back to the Battle.

"Guess Leon is stronger than I thought." Adagio said as she looked down at the stadium.

"You know this means trouble for you and Aria, right?" Sonata asked as she looked over at her sisters.

"What do you mean?" Aria asked as she looked over at Sonata confused.

"And with that victory to his belt, Leon will now be joining Gabby in the Semi-Finals, what an achievement! His strength is limitless and possibly unstoppable! Now only one spot is left for both Group A and B. We're going to have to find out who will take the last spots in the fifth round." The screen shows everyone's scores so far. Leon and Gabby with a 4-0. Dean, Sonata, Aria, and Adagio with a 3-1. Valex with a 2-2. Bael and Joy with a 1-3 and Frizzle, Athena, and Phoebe with a 0-4. "The fifth round is going to be the decided match for which remaining Bladers will move on to the Semi-Finals! To keep you all in suspense we're going to announce the last match-ups right now!" With that, the screen shakes around for a while until it comes to a halt. The matches were, for Group A, Frizzle vs Athena, Valex vs Sonata, and Dean vs Gabby, while for Group B it was, Phoebe vs Joy, Adagio vs Bael, and Aria vs Leon. "And it's settled the last matches of the tournament will commence tomorrow! Be there or be squared."

Sonata looked at her opponent. "Valex? He's formidable but I can take him and show that I'm way stronger!"

"I'll break through Balkesh's defense as if it's nothing." Adagio said with a smile.

Aria saw her match against Leon and smiled. 'I'll annihilate this so-called Champion! I'll destroy Luinor!!!

Preview: The fifth and final round of the round-robin is finally here! Group A starts us off with, and everyone is bursting with energy. Dean finally gets his chance at revenge for his brother Derek, by going up against Gabby. Blinded by rage and revenge Dean gives it his all.
