As Fudou gets furious and then attacks Hao head-on, but the Spirit of Fire blocks all the attacks and burns Fudou to his soul and then eat his soul off-screen. As Opacho states that another team has won, Team "X-I" is seen standing alongside the opponents they've just defeated. As Luchist asks what they should do about them, Hao orders to let them be.

As Marco tries to kill his opponents, Silva of the 10 Patch Officiants stops him and comments that the match is already over. As Lyserg and Marco then passes by Yoh and the others, Yoh states that they don't look very happy. This upsets Lyserg.

Meanwhile, Silva of the 10 Patch Officiants and Kalim of the 10 Patch Officiants have a conversation about the allowance of killing in the Shaman Fights. Later on, the X-Laws is seen performing a weird ritual. As Lyserg wonders if he gets an Archangel as well, he asks Marco if he can join them on their journey instead of staying behind to protect Jeanne. As Marco says no and leaves, Lyserg states that he has to defeat "him".

Later on, the X-Laws are talking about Lyserg. As the others members think Lyserg is ready, Marco states that he is still too naive. Then, Lyserg is seen leaving Jeanne's place. As he starts running, he doesn't notice that Morphine doesn't go after him. The next day, Ryu is still depressed that Lyserg is so far away. As Yoh offers to go and look for him, Morphine shows up and takes Yoh and the others along. Meanwhile, the X-Laws are standing face-to-face with the team that Marco and Lyserg defeated earlier. As they prepare to fight, Lyserg shows up and states that he wants to fight. As Lyserg and Hao's allies attack each other, Lyserg realities that Morphine is gone. As the X-Laws then protect Lyserg and kill the opponents, Morphine shows up together with Yoh and the others. Lyserg then gets angry at Morphine and Yoh for coming over. As Yoh asks Lyserg what he is going to do, Lyserg turns around and leaves together with the X-Laws, leaving Morpine behind. As Lyserg leaves his medium behind as well, Morpine flies away in shock. Later on, Lyserg is seen receiving his angel from Jeanne. As Lyserg grabs the gun, he meets his archangel, Zelel. Then, Marco tells Lyserg that they plan to kill Hao and Yoh with the Gate of Babylon.
