Joey learns about the upcoming Battle City tournament from Yugi and Téa. He decides to join in to help Yugi, despite their warning about Seto Kaiba having a grudge against him.

At the registration office, Yugi is well-qualified to enter the tournament, but when Joey tries to sign up, he finds out his ranking is too low. However, the clerk notices Joey's rarest card is Red-Eyes B. Dragon, something the Rare Hunters would like to get their hands on. He changes Joey's ranking so that it is high enough to let him enter the tournament. He then issues Yugi and Joey their Duel Disks. That evening, Joey separates from everyone else to go to the hospital to visit Serenity, who is about to get her eye operation. In a dark alley, Joey is confronted by three Rare Hunters. One of them forces him into a Duel where if he loses, he must give up his Red-Eyes B. Dragon. All the Rare Hunter does is draw cards and Set monsters. Joey continuously destroys his monsters, but the Rare Hunter eventually draws all five pieces of Exodia and wins. Joey is willing to hand over his Red-Eyes peacefully, but the Rare Hunters think it is more fun to take cards by force. They beat him up and take away his Red-Eyes.

The next morning, Joey's mother calls Yugi, to say that Joey never showed up at the hospital. Yugi, Tristan, and Téa search for Joey. Tristan, riding his cool motorcycle, finds him at a beach. After some words and blows are exchanged between the two (a scene completely cut from the U.S. version), Tristan takes Joey to the hospital. Apparently after getting beat-up, Joey was dazed and stunned, unable to remember what was going on and where he needed to be. Joey arrives and helps Serenity get the confidence she needs to go through with her operation. Joey is determined to get his Red-Eyes B. Dragon back.
