Shoichi attempts to move Merone Base, but an error occurs, as the spikes from Hibari's Box Weapon have penetrated the lab wall. Shoichi vows to defeat the Vongola. At the battle between Hibari and Genkishi, Kusakabe exclaims in shock that if they were to destroy Genkishi, they would be annihilated as well. I-Pin notices a way to move, and everybody moves in that direction. Kusakabe stumbles, but Hibari catches him and Gokudera, saying that he owes Gokudera a favor, and that he wouldn't be able to bite Kusakabe to death if he died here.
The walls start to close in, but Hibari uses a nano-composite armor from the flames from his Tonfa. Tsuna asks Reborn how far they are from the lab, to which Reborn replies that in their route, it would take a bit of time. Suddenly, the wall of the box in front of them begins to close, which Tsuna, Reborn, and Spanner just narrowly pass through. Huge cubes then fall, prompting them to dodge, when gigantic bug-eating plants that eat humans instead pop up. As they are falling towards the human-eating plant, Tsuna grabs his lucky charm from Kyoko, and thinks of his friends. With his resolve, he blasts through the plant.
