Rhya sardonically asks Mereoleona if she is trying to stall the elves for her teammates to escape but pities her considering the disadvantage she is in. Mereoleona says that they will only be in her way and she is enough to take care of them. Rhya laughs at her reply and tells that after they kill her they will capture Asta as his swords and grimoire belong to the original Licht. Mereoleona challenges that they need to defeat her first for that and charges at Rhya with Calidos Brachium Barrage but he escapes using Spatial Magic and regroups with the other elves. Outside, Zora and Asta argue about aiding Mereoleona. The elf possessing Puli uses Angel Wing on Rhya and comments on how humans are arrogant. The battle between the five elves and Mereoleona starts. As Mereoleona continues to battle she realizes that her senses are dropping and notices that it was due to Fragil Tormenta's Snow Magic: Miniature Garden of Illusory Snow which forcefully makes everyone sleep in the chamber except the elves.
The elf which has taken over Ruben, Rossa, charges at Mereoleona with his Sand Magic, and as she tries to counter it, he changes to Variable Hardness Prison and captures her. As the elves think they had won, Mereoleona breaks through the trap and charges at Rossa to kill him but Rhya intercepts with Spatial Magic and slashes her with Dark Cloaked Black Blade saying that he will not let another of his comrades die, Puli Angel then barrages her with Angel Flapping. When Rhya thinks it is over, suddenly a blue flame strikes him which he manages to dodge. Mereoleona appears wounded out of the smoke telling the elves to try killing her, seeing this Rhya doubts whether she really is human and feels troublesome. Mereoleona tries to attack the elves again but hits the floor. Rhya decides to finish the fight, Mereoleona agrees with him and decides to finish the elves with her ultimate spell thereby releasing all her mana which makes the elves dumbfounded. Mereoleona uses Calidos Brachium Purgatory which burns the entire chamber with blue flames but the elves manage to survive with some damage at the end. The elves acknowledge her power and Rhya compliments Mereoleona about still standing while being unconscious. Suddenly, Mereoelona wakes up and tells them to come at her and finish this even though she had no mana. Impressed by her persistence the elves decide to finish her with a combined spell.
Suddenly, Asta and Zora break into the chamber. Rhya comments about how that was foolish and launches the Compound Magic: Elemental Quintet. In a flashback, Asta and Zora discuss a strategy about rescuing Mereoleona. Zora speculates about how the odds are in their favor and it happened only because Mereoleona pushed the elves to that extent. Zora steps in front of the spell and captures it with his Trap magic. Zora then reflects the spell at Asta, who reflects it back at Zora using Demon-Slayer Sword. Zora catches the spell again but notices his magic circle is breaking apart. Asta suddenly appears behind the spell and reflects it at the elves thereby returning it quadrupled to the elves. The spell hits the wall behind the elves, Asta grabs Mereoleona and leaves with Zora by making a hole at the base using his Ash Magic. As they are trying to escape, Rhya appears out of a black portal and grabs Asta's arm dragging him before they could resist. While being dragged away, Asta leaves Mereoleona to Zora, much to his dismay. The other Royal Knights who are not possessed leave the dungeon.
In Licht's chamber, the possessed Klaus Lunettes and Hamon Caseus capture Mimosa Vermillion as she tries to flee from them, securing her in a steel cross. Yuno stands quietly, as the other two elves discuss his slow awakening. Rhya appears overhead and drops Asta in front of them. Asta and Mimosa converse about what was happening. Before Asta is able to free Mimosa, Klaus and Hamon stop him, which surprises the boy. Asta gets attacked by Klaus and Hamon but he manages to dodge their attacks. Asta tries to speak to them but he gets shocked as he notices Yuno also being possessed and shouts out to him.
