Soccer Disappeared!? (サッカーが
Alpha appeared for the first time, along with his team, Protocol Omega. Fei Rune appeared for the first time and was seen to bring the captain's band to Tenma. The whole Raimon soccer team appears in this episode as well (except for Tsurugi Kyousuke who didn't appear at all) but they don't remember anything about soccer or about Tenma.
It began with Matsukaze Tenma teaching young kids soccer at Okinawa. Afterwards, Tenma came back to Raimon Junior High after three months. Soon he bumped into Shindou, who then revealed through a short conversation that there is no soccer club in Raimon Junior High. Refusing to believe what Shindou said, Tenma went around to visit the other members, however they all said the same thing. Sangoku was now in a Sumo Wrestling club, Hamano joined a Fishing Club, Hayami and Aoyama joined a Tennis Club, Kurumada joined a Rugby Club; Kariya and Hikaru joined the music club; the others didn't join a club at all. When he gets around to meeting Shinsuke, who had joined the table tennis club, much to his surprise, Shinsuke didn't even know who Tenma was. As Tenma and Shinsuke were talking, Aoi ran to Tenma to stop him from joining the table tennis club, revealing that she and Tenma were part of the Calligraphy club. Feeling depressed, Tenma headed over to his usual soccer practice spot; however, he then was interrupted by Alpha who began a brief, but harsh conversation with him. Suddenly, Alpha kicked his Sphere Device at him, engulfing them in bright light--- and once the light had gone, Tenma and Alpha were back in time to the time and place where young Tenma was going to save Sasuke.
Tenma and Alpha
Tenma started wondering what he's doing here—only to see that young Tenma had saved Sasuke—but Gouenji didn't save them from the falling planks because Alpha shot to his ball in order to stop it. Tenma began to receive a terrible headache—in other words, his memories of soccer were disappearing. However, Tenma refused to allow his memories and love of soccer to fade. Alpha, after consulting with El Dorado, kicked his Sphere Device to teleport him and Tenma again. This time, they were transported to a field, where Alpha then revealed his team, Protocol Omega. Tenma unleashed Majin Pegasus Arc to fight back against them, however he received several harsh blows from each Protocol Omega member. When Alpha was about to strike Tenma with the last blow, he was stopped by a young green haired boy, revealing himself to be Fei Rune. Fei then suggested that they settle things through a soccer match. He summoned his team of Dupli, and changed into the team jersey, later also changing a confused Tenma into the jersey.
Before the match began, Alpha teleported a random person to the field and brainwashed him into commentating for the match. Alpha registered his team as Protocol Omega; Fei decided to call his team Tenmas and gave Tenma the captain's mark. Once the match began, both teams seemed to be on the same level of skills. However, the no-score play stopped when Alpha summoned his keshin, only to use Keshin Armed with it, giving Alpha immense strength and power, scoring a goal immediately. Shortly after, the Inazuma TM Caravan appeared up in the sky, much to Fei's joy—the driver of the caravan being Clark Wonderbot.
