Byakuran chose Torikabuto along with his subordinate Saru to participate in Choice. Tsunayoshi Sawada fought Torikabuto with his Vongola Box Weapon and appeared to win. However, it was later revealed that Torikabuto had from the beginning trapped Tsuna in a demonic illusion. Tsuna was unable to break free from the Illusion fast enough and as a result, the Millefiore won.
Later, after Uni defected, the Six Funeral Wreaths followed the Vongola to Namimori. Byakuran then used his power to discover Uni's location at Kawahira's shop. Along with Kikyo and Bluebell, Torikabuto was able to take back Uni. However, Gamma arrived and was able to rescue her. Although Torikabuto used the Asura Box, Chrome Dokuro was able to see through the illusion with Demon Spade's Devil Lens and direct Tsuna, who damaged the Wolfsbane Mask. However, Torikabuto used a bacterial powder so that the Millefiore could track Uni later. He was defeated by Tsuna's X-Burner and was permanently incapacitated soon after. Torikabuto is then revived after the Arcobaleno erase every bad thing Byakuran did in the future, thus, bring Bluebell along with the Real Six Funeral Wreaths back to life.
The present Torikabuto is seen along with the other Six Funeral Wreaths with Byakuran at the Giglio Nero Famiglia's mansion awaiting Uni's release from the Sky Pacifier in his present form. He is later eliminated on the first day of the Representative Battle of the Rainbow by Team Verde.
