Yu: The Secret of Gaudium is the twentieth episode of Final Fantasy: Unlimited.
In the cafeteria of Jane, Yu and Lisa watch Ai sit alone at a table. Yu comments she's always thinking of Clear and that Kaze refuses to say anything about the topic. Cid floats in, riding on the glove of Flight Water Ai brought back. Ai gets defensive and snatches the glove from beneath Cid.
Fungo, sitting nearby, announces that he has a bad feeling, and Jane collides with a barrier.
Rushing to the bridge, Cid discovers Jane is falling through the sky. As they plummet through the clouds, they reach, unbeknown to them, the Count's castle. Four strange devices floating nearby fire at the falling Jane, and the ship lands on top of one of the satellites.
Lisa sees the castle and becomes paralyzed by its evil aura. Resolving to open fire on the castle, the Commodeen load and fire a torpedo. It proves unsuccessful, as the satellites shoot the shell before it nears the castle. It is decided they are safe enough for the moment, as the satellites are unable to fire on each other.
Pist examines the situation, revealing that he intended to bring them to the fortress, but did not intended for them to get caught up with the satellites. Aboard Jane, Chobi goes wild at the smell of dead peppers. As Chobi activates his flight ability, Yu grabs onto his feet, but cannot restrain him, and Chobi carries Yu with him as he goes in the direction of the fortress in search of the peppers.
Chobi outmaneuvers the satellites' attacks, but Yu looses his grab, and lands in a corridor of the fortress. He surveys his surroundings with Crux watching Yu from overhead.
Yu searches the area, and hears the footsteps of someone following him. Yu comes face to face with a young boy, the Count, Earl Tyrant. The Count is disinterested in Yu, but laughs when he discovers the Yu is searching for Chobi, whom he calls a friend, commenting that birds are food not friends.
The Count offers Yu a lick of his lollipop, mentioning he feels full just by being near Yu. When Yu mentions he is searching for his parents, and gives his family name, the Count recognizes the two, and leads Yu to them.
Aboard Jane, Cid attempts to capture the satellite they are on. Though the others are concerned, Cid is determined that he will triumph.
Yu calls out to his parents, who fail to respond and only continue with their work. The Count explains they are assisting him in his conquest on all of reality, and suggests they are doing so willingly. To further add to Yu's pain, they seem oblivious to his existence, and serve a meal they had prepared to the Count without taking note of Yu's presence.
When the Count reveals his identity Chobi swoops in and grabs Yu and the pair escapes from Gaudium.
Aboard Jane, Cid has hacked one of the satellites, and opens fire on the other three. Crux watches as the fourth satellite drifts toward Gaudium once the other three are destroyed.
Makenshi appears nearby, and Kaze attempts to use the Magun, but it fails to respond. He draws his sidearm and takes aim before Lisa stops him, concerned for Yu and Chobi. Kaze throws her off and opens fire, but Makenshi deflects his bullets, rendering his sidearm useless.
As Chobi emerges from Gaudium and approaches Jane, Kaze notices the Magun is responding. Makenshi summons one of his dragons and sends it to attack the satellite. Kaze primes the Magun, but the satellite is destroyed and Jane and her crew are flung into the air.
Chobi and Yu crash-land through the broken bridge window, and though Yu is physically unharmed, he is emotionally broken. Jane is transported to the next section of the Ocean Puzzle.
In the Count's throne room, the present lords and the Count himself praise Makenshi for his show of force in driving Jane and her crew off, but Makenshi seems sad. Crux watches him from her normal position overhead.
Aboard Jane, Cid muses with Kaze over Makenshi's true loyalties and goals, noting the harm he has caused them, but also the many times he has assisted them. Kaze replies that Makenshi is his sworn enemy. Elsewhere, Miles and Lisa discuss the castle, agreeing it must be the castle Gaudium, where the Count resides. Yu has now become as unresponsive as Kaze.
