Dr. Stone Wiki

Flicker of Doom (滅びの煌めき Horobi no Kirameki) is the fifty-third episode of the Dr. Stone anime, and the eighteenth episode of the third season.


Taiju and the others carried away the stone statue of the head and exposed Ibara's evil deeds to the light of day. When Kirisame learns the truth, Ibara turns her into stone. Meanwhile, Yo, who was holding a gun, fires the remaining bullet at Ibara and gets the petrification device! Yo is happy to have obtained the most powerful weapon, but Ibara is also desperately trying to take it back. Meanwhile, Hyoga, who has been revived from petrification, is having a tough time fighting Moz, who boasts of his natural strength...

Plot Details[]

Yo attempts to petrify Moz as he continues to duel Hyoga, but has no idea how Medusa is activated. Hyoga escapes to the island after Senku, trusting he has a plan as Moz chases him. It is revealed Hyoga was struggling in the fight as he is unused to Kinro's spear. Knowing this, Senku has begun crafting pieces to recreate a flexible kudayari spear that Hyoga trained with for years. Now armed with his ideal weapon, Hyoga's superior technique overwhelms Moz. Ibara activates Medusa with a voice command, petrifying Yo, then retrieves Medusa, which he programmed to petrify the whole island in 15 minutes before forcing Oarashi to swallow it to carry it to the center of the island. Senku and the others capture Oarashi but can't remove Medusa from his stomach before it activates, petrifying everyone. Ibara returns to the island but finds all the statues posed in the same unusual stance in a straight line. He also recognizes Soyuz as the master's missing heir. After smashing Oarashi to retrieve Medusa, Ibara finds Senku somehow avoided being petrified and has prepared several scientific weapons to fight Ibara himself in a final showdown.
