Once the rest of the Crimson Lions arrive at the entrance of the recently uncovered dungeon beneath the Ultime-Volcano Mountain Trail, Mereoleona Vermillion contacts Marx Francois for further instruction while everyone else takes a rest. Marx tells them that there is a special magic tool inside the dungeon that could help to rebuild the Clover Kingdom. Julius Novachrono offers to explore the dungeon as well, but Marx adamantly refuses as no one can see and find out about Julius's changed appearance. Julius says that he can go in disguise, but Marx still refuses.
Mereoleona sends a team of six in to scout out the dungeon, consisting of Asta, Noelle Silva, Luck Voltia, Magna Swing, Leopold Vermillion, and Randall Luftair. They find a chamber that divides into three paths. Before they can go down any of the paths, they must first deal with various Trap Magic spells placed around the chamber. Randall uses an advanced application of his Air Magic, enough to reveal the traps, but not enough to set them off. Luck charges forward not caring about the traps and setting them all off, and Magna gets caught up in them as he runs after Luck. Magna and Luck enter the middle passageway, while Asta and Noelle go down the passageway on the right and Leopold and Randall take the one on the left.
Asta and Noelle run into an endless barrage of traps. Asta tells Noelle to get on his back so he can just bulldoze through the traps without having to worry about her. Noelle refuses, claiming that such a thing is below her status as a royal. Suddenly, Asta grabs Noelle and starts carrying her. Flustered at first, Noelle realizes that Asta is running back the way they came and sees a massive wave of lava headed right for them. They later reunite with Luck and Magna, who found a number of strange treasure chests with small human legs.
Leopold and Randall reach the center of the dungeon and find the treasure room. They also find the fallen bodies of the stone golems that were supposed to be guarding the treasure. The two Crimson Lions are attacked by the monstrous spider who uses its webs to activate the other stone golems. Hearing the sounds of battle, the Black Bulls come to Leopold and Randall's aid.
During the battle, Randall tells Leopold that he needs to survive, mirroring the events of the elf invasion, when the members of the Crimson Lions told Leopold that he needed to survive and that he would one day be the Crimson Lions' captain. Leopold questions what all of his training was for and feels insecure about Asta being so far ahead of him and about how the members of the Crimson Lion squad were always taking a stand to sacrifice themselves so that he could live on. He reaches a breakthrough, gaining the ability to compress his flames into a small but powerful blast. He also pulls in mana from the environment to boost his attack, singing parts of his clothes in the process. Leopold uses his newfound abilities to defeat the spider and the remaining golems.
Secre Swallowtail flies over and discovers that the mysterious magic tool they had been sent to find was the very thing that transformed the once normal spider into a giant monster. Unfortunately, the magic tool was destroyed by Leopold's attack.
After the scout team returns to the rest of the group, they receive Healing Magic and give their report to Mereoleona. Luck shows off one of the strange treasure chest creatures that he and Magna found. Despite protest from his squadmates, Luck opens the chest and finds it is filled with organs. Charmy Pappitson wonders if any of the organs are edible, but Gordon Agrippa believes that they are not.
Mereoleona, furious over the destruction of the magic tool, sends Leopold and Asta back into the dungeon and orders them to search every inch of it. The rest of the Magic Knights bathe in the hot springs. While the Black Bulls are relaxing, Fuegoleon Vermillion lectures his men on how to use the hot springs properly, preventing any of the Crimson Lions from actually enjoying the bath. In the women's bath, Noelle asks Mereoleona to tell her more stories about her mother after Mereoleona notes that Noelle's new spell is identical to that of her mother's.
The next morning, after searching the dungeon all night, Asta and Leopold return empty-handed. The Black Bulls fly back to their base, some noting that they had a good training trip. Magna has not forgotten that they were kidnapped and forced to go to that volcano and states that if he never sees Mereoleona again, it will be too soon. Luck notes the possibility that she is inside the base at that very moment. Magna scoffs at the idea, but as they reach the front door of their base, the door is blown apart, revealing Mereoleona standing there waiting for them.
