Ryohei manages to destroy the blimp before it crashes into the school. Skull, enraged by the two, continues his attack on the school but is soon defeated by Hibari. Soon after, the First Sun Guardian, Knuckle, allows Ryohei to pass his trial after witnessing his extreme optimism for the past few days and how he defeated the blimp without fear in order to protect his friends. Allaude then makes his appearance and announces Hibari has passed his trial as the Cloud Guardian by indirectly protecting the family without fraternizing with them. Elsewhere, Chrome returns to her hideout and collapses in tears in front of Ken and Chikusa.
