Ghost cries in agony and Tsuna in determination, as these two continue their battle, both using their Flame Absorption techniques. The two go all out in this battle of Flame absorption, with everything on the line for the Vongola, as only Tsuna's attack seems to have an effect on Ghost.
The power of these two techniques colliding is such that everyone around, are not only having their flames absorbed, but they are getting dragged towards the battle point.
Kikyo and the Vongola are having a hard time trying to keep their footing, a task which is by no means easy as their flames are being absorbed as well. They all watch this ongoing battle with baited breath, waiting to see who comes out victorious.
The intensity of this ongoing battle, is such that even as far as the Vongola campsite, the battle can be seen. The girls seem worried for the safety of their friends, and Reborn silently asks Tsuna to hang in there.
Back at the battle, Tsuna lets out a cry of determination and ups the power of his technique, and Ghost's shield finally starts to get absorbed.
But the startling thing is that it isn't just Ghost's shield being absorbed, but Ghost too, begins to get sucked in. Ghost cries in agony, and in a few seconds, he has been completely sucked in, having been completely absorbed by Tsuna. His ring falls to the ground silently, as everyone around tries to take in what has just transpired.
Silence greets this astonishing turn around. Everyone tries to get their mind around what has just happened. Fran breaks the silence by comically stating the obvious. Slowly everyone starts to recover, Belphegor being the first to realize that Ghost was a bunch of flames in itself.
Tsuna seems to be thinking hard about something, and that's when it strikes some of the others. Dino points out, that the power of Zero Point Breakthrough: Revised, was to absorb enemy flames and make them your own, but after absorbing Ghost's flames, Tsuna's flames haven't changed, it still remains the same.
This realization starts to dawn on the rest of the watching group as well. They start to wonder, why Tsuna's flames haven't increased, even though Ghost had absorbed most of their flames.
An uneasy feeling sets in, as Tsuna wonders what on earth happened to the flames that Ghost had absorbed. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a familiar voice greets the group. Byakuran has arrived.
Talking in his usual carefree tone, Byakuran tells Tsuna that he's surprised that Tsuna had managed to defeat Ghost. Kikyo rejoices at the arrival of his boss, while the Vongola tense up, preparing for the inevitable battle.
Byakuran surveys the people around him and comments on the "crazy lineup" before him. The boss of the Cavallone Famiglia, Dino, the Vongola's independent assassination squad, the Varia, the Vongola's outside advisor's team, part of the Kokuyo Gang and finally the 10th Generation Vongola Family, in other words, the strongest members of the Vongola Family, all in one place. Byakuran states that he's thrilled to have them all assembled in one place. Byakuran does however state his surprise at Tsuna's peculiar taste, his choice to work with both Xanxus and Mukuro Rokudo, two people who had attempted to kill him at one stage, Byakuran smiles, and in his carefree tone, says that Tsuna's choices are pretty insane.
Xanxus doesn't take too kindly to these words. He calls out to Byakuran, and tells him that he, by no means works for Tsuna, and shoots him with his Flame of Wrath. Mukuro joins in, telling Byakuran that he thought that his words and actions could only fool an innocent girl and a foolish boy, and attacks him with a blast from his Hell Ring. Kikyo calls out to Byakuran in worry, as both attacks had hit home.
However, Byakuran emerges from these attacks completely unscathed. He asks the two attackers, what was up with those weak attacks, comments that they all look tired, and then says that he cant blame them since Ghost had absorbed most of their flames, and therefore the group before him, are basically running on empty.
This comment doesn't sit well on the two attackers, and they challenge Byakuran to prove that they are not to be underestimated. Hibari feeling a bit annoyed at Mukuro and Xanxus for doing all the talking and attacking, joins in, but all three of them are stopped by Tsuna, who with extreme determination, states that Byakuran is his.
Byakuran laughs off Tsuna's statement, and asks Tsuna whether he knew why he had shown up when he did. With a dangerous look in his eyes, Byakuran states that the reason is that his body and spirit are finally ready. Tsuna counters this statement by saying that he has been ready for a long time, and disappears.
Tsuna reappears right behind Byakuran. Byakuran turns around in shock and is greeted by a kick to the chin. Byakuran has a look of astonishment on his face, as Tsuna grabs his head and knee's it, everyone looks on in surprise as Tsuna seems to be dominating Byakuran. Lal Mirch wonders when Tsuna got this strong, Mukuro thinks to himself that this was the Tsuna who was summoned from the past and grew after experiencing the many battles he had faced in the future.Allies now look on with confidence, as their boss is dominating. Tsuna goes on the attack once again as Byakuran is helpless in midair. He looks to once again land a punch on Byakuran, but this time is stopped by Byakuran. The astonishing fact is not the fact that the punch was stopped, but the fact that Byakuran only used a single finger to stop him. Byakuran smiles playfully, and this time it is Tsuna who is astounded.
Byakuran won't budge even though he is only using a single finger. Tsuna wonders just what kind of strength Byakuran has, to be able to stop him so easily. Byakuran, still smiling, asks Tsuna if that's all he has, and then with a dangerous glint in his eyes, says that its his turn now.
Byakuran uses a technique he calls White Finger. Sky Flames emanate from Byakuran's ring, and passes on to his finger, and Tsuna is immediately blow away by a powerful shock wave. Gokudera and Yamamoto scream in worry as Tsuna crashes to the ground.
Byakuran has finally begun his attack. The impact of Tsuna's crash can be seen and heard all the way from the Vongola campsite. Everyone looks worried as they see the dust rising from the impact zone. Even Reborn thinks that things look bad.
The power of Byakuran's technique has made Tsuna create a large crater where he crashed, and Tsuna seems down for the count. Gokudera and Yamamoto plead for Tsuna to hang in there, and Tsuna, gets up very shakily. Byakuran looks down at Tsuna and tells him that he cant have him dying from just that.
He then makes a statement that shocks everyone around, he says that he's only using a tenth of the Flames he had absorbed from Ghost. At this moment another shocking development happens. From the scars on Byakuran's back, a pair of wings have started to grow. As the wings grow, Byakuran states that all the Flames Ghost had stolen, now belong to him.
The realization of what Byakuran has just said starts to sink in. But not everyone is convinced. Dino questions the truth in Byakuran's statement by saying that he has never heard of someone taking flames from someone else without any contact.
Byakuran laughs and explains that Ghost was never another person, but a different version of him from a parallel world. Absolute shock greets this statement. The fact that Byakuran had brought another version of him from a parallel world was hard to believe for the watching group. But Byakuran says that whether they believe it or not didn't matter, but the fact remains that Ghost had the ability to absorb flames, an ability which Byakuran lacked, and then transferred it to Byakuran. Mukuro then puts everything into clearer terms.
If it is true that Byakuran has acquired the flames of everyone present, with the exception of Tsuna, then his power couldn't be measured.
The focus now shifts onto Byakuran's wings. Levi A Than states that it's probably just for show, but Bel states the possibility that the flames were probably packed together so tightly that they look like wings. But Byakuran states that the wings weren't just merely flames, but a symbol, a symbol to show that he had gained power greater to that of a human.
Dino and Squalo yell at Byakuran, asking him if he thought he was a god, but Kikyo says that Byakuran wasn't a god, but a devil.
Byakuran is interrupted by Tsuna, who tells him it doesn't matter what Byakuran is, or what kind of powers he has, he will still be taken down.
Byakuran tells Tsuna that that was the spirit and both Tsuna and Byakuran start to release their flames. The intensity of these two rival bosses releasing their power, is such that the very air begins to crackle. Byakuran tells Tsuna that he came to play, and that Tsuna had better entertain him.
The members at the camp see this new development, and Reborn tells everyone that the real battle is about to begin. Uni thinks to herself that she had better hurry.
Tsuna takes off and immediately lands a punch on Bykuran, and he follows it up with a barrage of punches to the same area. But even through all this, Byakuran just smiles and tells Tsuna that it tickles.
Tsuna realizing that his punches are having no effect, backs off to create a bit of distance between the two. Byakuran smiles, asks Tsuna if he is finished, and begins to prepare his own attack.
Byakuran's palm glows with the golden Sky Flames, he tells Tsuna to play with his pet, and then Byakuran's very hand turns into a White Dragon.
Tsuna wonders how Byakuran's hand could turn into an animal, but the he notices an open box hanging from Byakuran's clothes. This is his Box Animal.
Nuts and Tsuna successfully manage to hold off the Dragon, but Nuts seems a bit shaken. Byakuran tells Tsuna that he is holding back most of its power during its previous attack. He tells Tsuna that he's the only person to have this kind of box, and then says that the next attack would go right through him.
Byakuran sends the White Dragon to attack Tsuna once again, Nuts lets out a snarl, but Tsuna tells him not to be baited. The Dragon heads for Tsuna, and this time, did manage to make a connection. When the flames clear, Tsuna has caught the Dragon and immediately uses his Zero Point Breakthrough to freeze the dragon.Tsuna now heads for Byakuran, telling Nuts to begin Cambio Forma, Mode Attacco as he does so. Upon hearing this, Tsuna's allies wonder if Nuts can turn into a weapon other than Vongola Primo's Cloak. Dino then explains that he had heard that when Vongola Primo focused all of his flames into his fist for an ultimate attack, his gloves would actually change form. His allies then begin to realize that Tsuna focusing all his flames into a single attack would be a punch as powerful as the X-Burner. This new weapon is called Mitena di Vongola Primo, Primo's gauntlet.
Tsuna charges towards Byakuran with the Gauntlet in hand, but Byakuran, for his part doesn't even budge. He simply looks at the weapon, says that he'll be able to see how strong Tsuna was, and asks him to bring it on.
Tsuna seems surprised that Byakuran isn't attempting to avoid it. Tsuna now looking frustrated, thinks to himself that Byakuran is screwing around and continues his charge. Once he gets close enough, he releases a technique he calls Big Bang Axle towards Byakuran. Byakuran doesn't move as this technique gets closer, he simply puts his hands together and claps. And then, much to everyone's shock, Tsuna's technique, said to be as powerful as the X-Burner, simply vanishes.
Byakuran, laughing, says that the Vongola Box has been defeated. Tsuna and his allies can't seem to comprehend what has just happened, so Byakuran explains. He says that the technique he used was the ultimate defensive technique, White Applause. He says that, that technique has the power to shatter any technique. He then talks to Tsuna, he asks him if Tsuna has ever been this outclassed in a battle before, he asks Tsuna if he is afraid, and says that he shouldn't feel any shame in being scared, after all, even if Tsuna is a Mafia boss, he is still just a middle school student. He charges towards an intimidated looking Tsuna, charging his Sky Flames as he does so, and says that Tsuna is even welcome to wet his pants.
Byakuran lands a vicious punch on Tsuna, that sends Tsuna crashing to the ground. Tsuna seems pretty hurt, but he manages to get to his feet as Byakuran lands next to him. Byakuran acknowledges Tsuna trying hard, but then launches his next attack.
He makes a grab motion with his hand, even though he is some distance from Tsuna, but some kind of hand erupts from Byakuran's hand, and grabs Tsuna. Tsuna is completely immobilized, as his allies cry out in worry. Byakuran tells Tsuna that he can stop now, as he makes a squeeze motion with his palm, and immediately the giant hand which had grabbed Tsuna begins to squeeze him. Tsuna looks in absolute pain, as Byakuran continues the torture.
