After witnessing this, Yami decides to go face Vetto but notices that he and Gifso are trap within a barrier.[10] Vetto notices that Yami is watching and says that he is going to kill all of his comrades. Yami uses Gifso's magic to inform the Black Bulls what is happening and to surpass their limits. Gifso then uses his magic to tells them other that he is changing the rules and that he will grant their wishes if they win. Kiato and Asta decide to postpone their fight and head out to where Vetto is.

At Vetto's location Vetto wonders who his next prey be, when Magna and Luck get back up and says that they will not break.

Asta then pulls out his second sword and attack Vetto with it.

Vetto comments about how being hit by the Anti-magic sword feels. Asta then asks what they want the Magic Stones for, which Vetto says that he is not going to tell him and that he will also kill everyone here until he gets the stone.

Kiato and Kahono use a union spell to at Vetto with, which Kiato explains how their magic was born and what its meant for.[16] Vetto says that he does not care and rips Kiato's leg off along with crushing Kahono's throat. Gifso tries to defend Kahono by creating monsters to attack Vetto but Vetto easily destroys them. Vetto picks Kahono up, in order to see despair in Kahono but only sees a different look. Vetto decides to rip Kahono limb from limb, which Noelle tells Vetto to let Kahono go. Noelle then wonders what to do since she might hit Kahono, which Kahono uses magic to tells Noelle to attack Vetto with everything she has. Noelle then releases her mana and tells Vetto to let go of her friend.[17]

Vetto recognizes the mana and says that Noelle is royalty. Noelle says that it does not matter and that she is going to defeat him for hurting her friends and teammates. Vetto tosses Kahono away and tells Noelle to attack with her most powerful spell, which Noelle says that she was going to anyway. Noelle then fires a spell powerful enough to rip right through Vetto and break right through the walls to the outside.[18] Vetto remembers a tragic moment in his past and then reveals that he has a third eye along with releasing a sinister mana. Vetto uses a spell that restores his arm, which Yami tells Noelle to get out of there. Vetto then fires a blast at Noelle, but Asta steps in and cuts through the blast to save Noelle.

Vetto decides to finish off Kiato, Kahono, Magna, Luck, and Gio and fires a spell at them, but Vanessa shows up and saves the others while also bidding Vetto.[20] Vanessa says that he is going to help Asta, which Vetto frees himself and fires a blast at them. Finral creates a portal and directs the blast back at Vetto, but Vetto easily deflects the blast. Finral tells the others that he will help fight too. Vetto says that it does not matter how many there are, which Vanessa tells Noelle to defend the wounded. Vanessa also says that no regular attack with work on Vetto because of the mana that he is releasing, and that Asta is the only one that can attack because of his Anti-magic.

Vetto notices Asta and going to counter, but Vanessa uses her string to help Asta dodge. Asta then jumps through another portal and manages to land a blow on Vetto. Vetto goes to attack Asta but Vanessa pulls Asta through a portal to safety.

Vetto then charges and says that he will not give them a sliver of hope, which Asta jumps through portals in order to distract Vetto. Vanessa and Finral both remember why they joined the Black Bulls and says that they are going to increase the speed to attack Vetto.[21] Vetto compliments on their concentration, but also says that they are reaching their limit soon.

Asta, Vanessa, and Finral think that they have won, but Vetto grabs Asta arms and start to crush them. Vetto explains that he let them hit him and starts to yell despair. Asta says that its not over yet, which shocks everyone. Vanessa quickly pulls Asta back and uses her strings to binds his arms so that he can hold his sword.
