Ghost in the Machine (霧の中の幻, Phantom in the Mist) is the twenty-fourth episode of Beyblade: V-Force.
Thanks to Ray's spectacular victory over Salima, the Bladebreakers reach the fourth level of Gideon's Battle Tower and meet their next opponent, Goki. As Kai steps forward to battle him, Gideon and Doctor B prepare a special surprise for the team. Using the information gathered from the previous two Beybattles, Doctor B has programmed Driger and Draciel's attack patterns into Goki's Beyblade.
Meanwhile, the Saint Shields continue to explore the Psykick's headquarters in an attempt to find Max's captured Draciel. But Dunga's impatience sets off the alarms, alerting Gideon to their presence.
Kai fights with great power but soon loses his focus, helping Goki to take control of the battle. After the battle ends in a tie, Kai reveals that he thinks he's facing Wyatt in the match, and can't fight him because he feels what happened to him was his fault. His teammates try to convince him otherwise but they fail to do so.
