Yami Sukehiro informs Finral Roulacase about the status of Royal Capital and is glad that Finral did not turn into an elf. In the forest, Magna Swing trains alone with his Fire Magic and is interrupted by Vanessa Enoteca on her way back to the Black Bull base. Magna thinks of the Royal Knights and feels that he has to become stronger in order to catch up to them. Outside the Eye of the Midnight Sun's dungeon, Zora Ideale rests the unconscious Mereoleona Vermillion beside a tree and worries about Asta.
In the central chamber of the dungeon, Asta yells out to Yuno, the elf possessing Klaus comments it as futile. The elves in Hamon and Klaus decide to quiet down Asta and attack him with their Creation Magic, Asta counters their attack and requests them to stop as they are comrades. Klaus's body reacts from Asta's words, angered by this the elf insists that his resentment for humanity is greater than his host's relationship with Asta and attacks him. Asta manages to cut the steel drills but it manages to pierce him and he kneels. The elves decide to finish him off to take his grimoire and swords. Asta stands back and declares that he will survive this and become the Magic Emperor. Hearing this, Yuno recalls his childhood memories. As the elves attack Asta, Yuno interferes with his Tornado Fang and declares that he will be the one to become the Magic Emperor, showing that he has come back to his senses.
Asta and Yuno discuss the situation among them, Rhya gets shocked as Yuno did not turn into an elf and worries about Licht as he did not wake up yet even though his grimoire is in front of him, concluding that they may require some time to fully awaken. Klaus gets disappointed about this and decides to kill them, Yuno easily overwhelms the elves attacks. Klaus and Hamon decide to go all out to attack Yuno. Yuno suggests Asta run away with Mimosa saying that he will take care of it. Asta laughs out loudly at Yuno's statement and stands beside him ready for the battle. The elves say that with the grimoire of this generation they can ascend the spells and use Le Château de Verre. Yuno uses Spirit Dive and Asta transforms into Black Asta and they defeat the elves together, making them pass out. Licht sees that the elves have been defeated and remembers the scene from his wedding. Licht grabs the elves and places them on the ground. Yuno senses the incredible mana from Licht and as Asta is astonished about Licht, Nero comes out and pecks him.
Licht picks the Demon-Destroyer Sword from the ground and Asta feels troublesome as he senses Licht's Ki and realizes that his black form is nearing its limit. Yuno warns Asta, but before Asta could even reply Licht stands in front of him and takes the Demon-Dweller Sword from Asta, restores, and swings it which makes them fall back. Licht continues to attack Yuno with a series of swings which Yuno barely deflects and as he closes the distance with Yuno, Asta intervenes and fights him in close combat. Licht defends himself and throws Asta away. Spotting the opening, Yuno uses Liable Tempest to bind Licht, and Asta charges at him to slash him using his Demon-Slayer Sword but Licht appears behind Asta smashing him to the ground. Licht kicks Asta, and attacks him with a series of swings which Asta barely defends. Yuno tries to use his Gale White Bow but Licht quickly appears in front of him and throws him off. Yuno asks what Asta plans to do for which he replies that he is going to surpass his limits right here, but suddenly a blow from Licht's swing smashes him through the walls and Licht kicks him down into a pool of water, as Asta loses his black form.
Yuno chases Licht and uses Spirit Storm on him but Licht manages to absorb it all using the Demon-Dweller Sword and swings it back at him. Licht starts to battle with Yuno in the sky while Asta thinks about how strong Licht is and that he needs to fight back. Rhya comments about Asta and Licht's power while Mimosa worries about being helpless. Yuno starts to keep up with Licht's speed and dodges his swings. Yuno sees an opening and attacks Licht using Spirit Storm from behind. Sensing this, Rhya yells at Licht. Licht manages to absorb the attack with his Demon-Dweller Sword. As Rhya gets to relax on worrying about Licht, Asta breaks through the floor in his black form and charges at Licht breaking through the dungeon. Rhya thinks that the timing is perfect and wonders who they both are. Asta and Yuno attack Licht together when he was busy absorbing the spirit storm while yelling that they are rivals of each other and that they will not lose to him. Licht manages to block them using the Demon-Destroyer Sword but the sword flies off due to the thrust and Asta catches it mid-air. Licht then unleashes a magical blast from the Demon-Dweller Sword. The humans are sent crashing through the bottom of the dungeon and down into the water below destroying a massive area. The other Royal Knights defend themselves from the blast waves.
