Daemon Spade, in Mukuro's body, appears before the group. Mukuro, possessing the owl Mukuro, observes Daemon and senses an overwhelming power coming from him. An angry Enma asks Daemon how he could lie to the Simon Famiglia, but Daemon simply laughs. Tsuna, Yamamoto, Gokudera and Hibari prepare to attack Daemon but Chrome stops them, saying that Daemon is in Mukuro's body, causing Tsuna to hesitate. However, Mukuro says that it doesn't matter since Daemon is much much stronger now and no longer a human but a monster and even if the combine their strength, he is not sure if they will be able to match his strength. Tsuna understands and the group prepares to attack.
Daemon pulls out his cards and instantly appears before the group, holding a joker card. The group tries to run to avoid the attack but the card explodes before they can move. As the smoke clears, Tsuna, Enma, Chrome and Reborn notice that Gokudera, Yamamoto, Lambo and Julie are missing. Mukuro notices this too and questions Daemon, who reveals that he sent the others to a illusory world he created. Daemon then reveals his plan to take the story of the defeated Vongola Decimo and turn it into a legend to be passed down the future generations of the Vongola; and for that to happen there needs to be witnesses and story tellers. At this, Hibari attacks and replies back that the story that they will passed on is that of Daemon's death. Tsuna tries to stop him, but Reborn stops him, saying that Hibari stood back and watched quietly during Tsuna's last match and they owe him to oblige.
After remarking that Hibari is just like Alaude, Daemon uses an illusion to make a mouth appear on his stomach, taunting Hibari to attack, much to the group's surprise. Hibari is impressed by this and Daemon, in turn, is impressed by Hibari. Daemon then uses Koyo's Leaf Cutter together with P. Shitt's Ground Fermentation, surprising Enma and the Vongola. Daemon then reveals the fallen Simon Guardian's rings that he took from the Vendicare Prison. However, Hibari ignores this and attacks but Daemon easily blocks him. Daemon also shows that he has the Bracelet of the Cloud Vongola Gear...
