But Jin takes a second notice when G-Rex comes close to beating him but doesn’t, so he fires Emperor’s missiles to break over G-Rex. Jin wins, but he asks Lex why he let me in.

After denying such claim, Jin makes his leave with his LBX and to his horror, discovered that his current grandfather was nothing more than an android manipulated by someone. He then told his butler regarding his decision to battle against Innovator while telling the truth to him. Jin then meet with Ban at his house, persuading him to continue fighting while telling the truth about Yoshimitsu but Ban refused, to the point he wanted to smash Odin with his own hands while blaming LBXs for causing deaths at the people getting involved with them.

Kazu and Ban stare in shock as he pulls a trap door in a tree branch, revealing a open wooden door. He reminds them that practical effects are still relevant as they enter the base. Using Triton to battle a few of the LBX, Jin helps secure the command center for Yagami's usage, preventing Mizel from keeping notice. He promises Ban to be safe and vice versa. As they leave, he and Yagami dicuss how the Innovator event affected them, unsure of his answer but content with his friends and seeing the world in a new light. They leave when Yagami cuts off the server room from the rest of the system. They're ambushed by Inbits but make it to the control room first.
