As the battle between Mukuro and Demon continues, Demon brings out what appears to be a normal deck of playing cards, but Demon reveals that with both the Mist Flame and Julie Kato's Desert Flame, he holds the two jokers that creates illusions and that Mukuro's illusions couldn't defeat his. Mukuro then pulls out his Vongola gear ore and upgrades it into the Earring of the Mist Version X. Mukuro calls upon Mukuro Version X and uses Cambio Forma Version Vongola Gear, which turns Mukuro's Trident into a Khakkhara.
Mukuro uses his khakkhara with his Six Paths of Reincarnation which takes shape outside and surrounds Demon in all six shapes of Mukuro's Eye. This powerful technique then deceives Demon Spade's Devil Lens, trapping Demon within it. Demon is then seen falling into a giant Mukuro's hand before getting squished and wrapped up in what appears to be a lotus flower. Just as Mukuro is about to finish him off, Demon changes into an illusion of Chrome Dokuro, who pleads him to stop, but Mukuro recognizes that she is an illusion.
Mukuro's six shapes of eyes change into Demons cards where M.M., Chikusa Kakimoto, Ken Joshima and Fran suddenly materialize from. These illusions of Mukuro's so-called friends attack him, but with Demon using his friends to attack, he thinks that Mukuro would not fight back or at least will make Mukuro's concentration dull, but Mukuro uses his khakkhara to strike them all down at once. Mukuro states that he doesn't share emotional bonds with the five of them, stating that he is on his own and will not hesitate to kill them.
The illusion fades along with Demon who slowly changes back into Julie as he thinks and comments that Mukuro's possession is on a different level as his bond is absolute. He then calls Mukuro and his group as an absurd group of guys as he seemingly fades away, with Mukuro bidding him farewell.
