A Rival Appears! Dance Brave?! (強敵（ライバル）現る！ダンスブレイブ！！)) is the fifth episode of Brave Beats. It first aired in Japan on November 15, 2015.
A new transfer student enrolls in Hibikis class one day. Maito, the name of the student, seemed very recluse and quiet in nature; giving off a very mysterious vibe. However, as the day progresses, it is shown that the transfer student is quite smart, versatile in sports and, because of his “cool” nature, made a huge uproar with the girls in Hibiki's class. Even though he'd just arrived, his constant praise and acknowledgment would make Hibiki somewhat jealous in some regard. However, after seeing seeing the transfer student's talent with dancing, Hibiki couldn't help but be impressed.
Later that day, Hibiki was given a homework assignment to investigate the history of the regional area. Kotone thought it would be nice to invite Maito to join them and persuaded him to come along. As they head to the local museum, Breakin and Adeline decide to tag along unexpectedly.
