SlushAngemon announces that he will officially hand over the position of President to Lucemon with overwhelming support. Shoutmon finds Lucemon in the library looking over books. After Lucemon leaves, he has a conversation with Shakkoumon, who Shoutmon suspects to be a Bagra Army spy. At the inauguration itself, however, it is revealed that Shakkoumon is the election commissioner tasked with supervising the election and making sure that the candidates are honest and true. Shakkoumon is also the only one with the ability to bestow the presidential armband.
Unfortunately, it seems that Shakkoumon failed in his job, as Lucemon reveals himself as Laylamon of the Bagra Army's subordinate and takes the Code Crown. Doing so releases the corrupting Phantom Mist it and the goodness of the Zone's inhabitants it sealed. Lucemon takes on his true Wild 1st form. The Fusion Fighters are then also attacked by Nene Amano and AxeKnightmon. Nene begins to absorb the darkness in the Phantom Mist while it leaks into the Zone, corrupting its inhabitants. The Fusion Fighters attack Lucemon in order to retrieve the Code Crown and succeed with Shakkoumon's help. Shakkoumon then teleports them to Nene, where they question her intentions regarding the Mist. Lucemon then appears and backstabs Nene regarding their deal, absorbing the Mist for himself. Unfortunately for him, the Mist is too strong for him, and Lucemon begins to mutate out of control.
