==Character==
{{spoilers}}
Fraud is a young man thatwho is shrouded in mystery. He seems to be incredibly powerful, as his first opponent in Burst Heart Survival was seen as a nervous wreck after being defeated by him. He seems to enjoy battling against opponents that he deems will entertain him in the process, and gets bored when his expectations aren't met.
 
It is later revealed that Fraud is in fact the boss of Great Gavel, who made himself younger using Great Gavel's technological advancements.
 
In his youth, Fraud was the son of Kared, a wealthy businessman who originally possessed the {{p|Reshiram}} Burst Heart. In an attempt to stop his father's enemies from attacking them, Fraud stole the Burst Heart and attacked their foes, only for them to attack back. From this point on, Fraud decided to create a peaceful world by gaining a power that would be far too powerful for anyone to try to stand up to.
 
It is later revealed that Fraud is in fact the boss of Great Gavel who made himself younger using Great Gavel's technological advancements.
==History==
Fraud first appears as one of the many contestants of the Burst Warrior tournament, Burst Heart Survival. By using his [[Burst]], Fraud passes the preliminary first round known as "Suddenly Bottomless Survival" and makes it to the second round along with the other fifteen remaining contestants.
In the fourth round, "Seesaw Balloon Survival", Fraud is paired up against Hariru. Wanting revenge for what happened to Carola, Hariru attacks Fraud relentlessly only to find out that he is using special movements to take low amounts of damage from the hits. As they battle, Fraud easily knocks down all of Hariru's attacks and throws him back.
 
Eventually, an injured Carola makes it to the stage and reveals the secret to Fraud's true identity that she found out before. Carola reveals that Fraud is, in fact, the boss of Great Gavel. Hariru, shocked that Fraud isn't a middle -aged man like he remembers, is told by Fraud that using the technology of Great Gavel, he managed to reverse his aging. After delivering one more powerful blow to Hariru, Fraud reveals to him that the person who had killed Hariru's father and destroyed his village was actually him and not Arcades like he was led to believe. Furious, Hariru relentlessly attacks Fraud but is unable to land any hits. Eventually, Fraud finishes Hariru off with one of his techniques, eliminating him from the tournament. Soon after, it is revealed that Fraud is actually the owner of Burst Heart Survival.

The attack works and Fraud's left arm eventually breaks apart and explodes, turning it back into its previous shape. The two fighters are left exhausted and they both throw one final punch, sending each other into the water below while Pauline begins the countdown to end the fight. She finally finishes the countdown and the match ends in a tie between the two Burst Warriors.
 
Sometime later, Fraud is seen recovering in liquid-filled tube at the Great Gavel headquarters and is informed by his strategic advisoradviser Gerubu that Ryouga has obtained six Burst Hearts needed to find Arcades but has a plan already set out to deal with him. After it is revealed that {{p|Cobalion}}, {{p|Terrakion}}, and {{p|Virizion}} have been captured, Fraud smiles with the knowledge that three certain individuals millwill make now their appearance.
 
Sometime later, after the Three Generals are defeated, Gerubu returns with their Burst Hearts. He places them in a machine that sends energy into Fraud, rejuvenating his body and making it much stronger in the process. With Fraud awake once more, Gerubu states that the strongest body has been completed.
 
Later, Hariru and Carola arrive at Great Gavel Headquarters in order to enact their revenge on Fraud. Upon arriving, they find the place in ruins and after asking an injured member, find out that it was Fraud who did it. Fraud comes into the area and greets the two, where he shows off his new body. Hariru and Carola immediately Burst, and Fraud does the same to begin their battle.
 
Having gotten stronger by evolving his Burst, Hariru proves evenly matched with Fraud, while Carola is unable to keep up or read their movements. Eventually, Fraud discards his Burst Heart and picks up a new one. He activates Burst, revealing a newer Reshiram Burst form and prepares to face Hariru once more.
 
Despite their best efforts, Fraud's new Burst form proves far too powerful for them and he easily defeats them. Later, with the tracker that Gerubu put on Yappy, Fraud tracks Ryouga's group as they try to escape to where Arcades is. Later, he travels to the island where Ryouga's group landed on and reminisces his past while he travels to his foe's location.
 
Soon after, he encounters Karuta and Rug who fight him in an attempt to buy time for Ryouga. He easily defeats them, but Rug reveals that Ryouga is going to obtain the power of Arcades before fainting. Gerubu praises Fraud's victory and how he can create his ideal world with his new power. However, Fraud reveals to Gerubu that his ideal world does not include him and kills him offscreen.

Later, he arrives at Ryouga's location and witnesses him about inherit the power of Arcades. He quickly grabs and throws Miruto at Ryouga, distracting him long enough for Fraud to take Arcades' power for himself. With the power of Arcades, Fraud gained the ability to use multiple Bursts, each of the seventeen Pokémon types.
 
With his new power, Fraud easily defeats Ryouga and announces his plan to destroy the world. To enact this plan, Fraud flies away and goes to Eternal Tower. There, he encounters Pauline, who has now become a reporter investigating the tower with a camera crew. After driving away her assistants with his power, Fraud forces Pauline to broadcast a message. People around the world witness Fraud's plan to rid the world of all pain, suffering, and conflict, by destroying all life so that the world can start anew. After he finishes, he flies up to the tower to begin his plan.
 
Sometime after, Fraud continues his broadcast after several attempts to stop him by the populace have been prevented. Soon after, Ryouga—now with Zekrom's tail added to his Burst form—arrives to stop him. Advertising this as a final show before he destroys life, Fraud and Ryouga begin their final battle. Despite the power he gained after his previous defeat, Ryouga is still unable to beat Fraud's many Burst forms.
 
Fraud continues to attack Ryouga with Burst after Burst until he's barely able to move. Suddenly, the Pokémon from around the world decide to help Ryouga by lending him their power. By doing so, Ryouga gains a massive boost in strength, and he fires a powerful attack at Fraud that is strong enough to turn him to his normal form. Despite this, Fraud isn't defeated and the two continue their battle in their human forms.
 
The two exchange blow after blow, each stating what their idea of peace as they do. After being hit by Ryouga one last time, Fraud tries to attack again, only to be turned into a statue as the consequence of abusing the power of Arcades. Arcades' caretaker arrives at the tower and goes to take the statue of Fraud back onto the island.
