04 - Fuzors Combine! Liger Zero Phoenix
RD continues to chase after the Fire Phoenix, trying to coax it into fusing with his zoid. RD is completely convinced that obtaining the Fire Phoenix as a fusing partner will guarantee that he'll be the most powerful pilot.
Sweet informs the rest of Mach Storm that RD and herself plan to spend the night there. Meanwhile, the rest of the team speculates as to what kind of Zoid it is. Sigma is extremely annoyed at all the attention this is getting from Hop and Helmut.
Buster Eagle and Berserk Fury's repairs are taking a while and this tries Blake's patience. Luke apologizes and blames himself because he's unable to find any data on the Fire Phoenix. Sandra enters and tells Blake that she believes the Fire Phoenix is the Liger Zero's Fuzor zoid. She whispers her plan to Blake.
RD continues to attempt to fuse with the Fire Phoenix. As night approaches RD continues to research a different strategy. Suddenly he gets a call from Savage Hammer. Sandra challenges Mach Storm to a battle on Altora Plains with an unlimited number of Zoids used by either team.
Blake decides that only he and Luke will fight against Mach Storm using the Berserk Fury and Buster Eagle. Burton plans to watch from the sidelines.
A Nightwise is caged on a mountainside. The Fire Phoenix breaks open the bars. Suddenly a burst of gunfire hits the Fire Phoenix's wings. While RD and Sweet take a Gustav across the plains, Liger Zero suddenly shifts and roars at the same time the Fire Phoenix takes damage.
As the Fire Phoenix is getting pummeled by ammo, a Storm Sworder swoops down and strikes it to the ground. A Dark Horn charges at the downed Phoenix, who flies off to dodge the attack. The Dark Horn meets up with a GunSniper. They are paid mercenaries ready to destroy the Fire Phoenix. They continue to rain gunfire on the Fire Phoenix who skillfully avoids most of their fire.
Burton watches the action from the sidelines. Sandra has deliberately planned to keep the Fire Phoenix distracted with the gunfire as RD and Mach Storm face off with Savage Hammer.
The Fire Phoenix is grounded and the Dark Horn raises its foot to crush it. However, RD and Liger Zero come charging at the Dark Horn, pushing it aside. He begins to fight with the other two zoids.
Meanwhile, Burton reassures Sandra that everything is going according to plan, but when he checks up on the status of the battle he finds the entire mercenary team destroyed.
Sigma and Helmut are left alone to fight against Savage Hammer's Berserk Fury Fuzor. Despite Sigma and Helmut's bravery, they are instantly taken out of commission by Blake's zoid.
RD shows up just in the nick of time to battle against Blake. Blake taunts RD saying that he cannot beat the Berserk Fury Fuzor without the Fire Phoenix. Just then the Fire Phoenix also appears and fuses with the Liger Zero forming the Liger Zero Phoenix. The newly formed Fuzor zoid strikes the Berserk Fury and severely injures it in one blow. Suddenly, the power window to the Berserk Fury starts closing fast, causing Blake to make a hasty retreat.
Having won the battle, Mach Storm reflects on the awesome power of the Fire Phoenix. At that moment, the Fire Phoenix rises up and flies off into the sunset. RD is confident that someday the Fire Phoenix will return.
