Arc League Championship
Taka was first seen among the other Bandit Warrior Academy students in a stadium. Later on, he and his partner Nagi were called in to Duel against the Pioneer of Pendulum Summoning. Taka's harsh Dueling style made it hard for Yuya to attack and virtually impossible for him to grab any Action Cards. However, the tide of the battle was turned when Dennis decided to step in Taka's Duel. The Bandit Warrior Academy pair lost, quite ashamed of themselves. Nico Smiley announced their loss to the Duelists' spectators.
Later on, Taka, along with Nagi, challenged Yugo to a Duel, whom they confused for Yuya. Taka and Nagi lost the Duel and became unconscious. Yugo asked them a question, but they did not answer.
Taka uses a Star Deck focused on Fusion Summoning his ace monster, "Fujin the Breakstorm Star". Much like the rest of the Bandit Warrior Academy Duelists, he uses martial arts to attack his opponent during Action Duels to prevent them from getting Action Cards.
