After a humiliating defeat, Arukenimon is about to turn the tables on the DigiDestined. Meanwhile, Cody's doubts about Ken manage to isolate Ken further from the group.
Arekunimon is furious after her previous defeat by the DigiDestined.With Mummymon assisting her, they use 100 control spires they decide to create the ultimate Digimon. Cody and Ken can’t seem to get along so Ken leaves, knowing he isn’t wanted by everyone. Arukenimon finds an area to create her Digimon and creates BlackWarGreymon! While Davis, Yolei and Cody runs towards the hill/mountain that BlackWarGreymon was created, Cody tells Davis and Yolei his bad feeling to this whole event and was concerned about T.K. and Kari flying too fast. Unfortunately, he was right. A wind that formed when BlackWarGreymon blew Pegasusmon and Nefertimon, along with T.K. and Kari, away from the hill and crash-landed. After stating who he was, they fainted. The others had no choice but contact Ken and ask for help, in which Ken, refuses because of not wanting to break the atmosphere of the team. Yolei had to slap him for Ken to wake up and realise they needed him, but even with Paildramon there, the DigiDestined didn't stand a chance against BlackWarGreymon. He easily defeats the DigiDestined before he abandons his loyalty to Arukenimon.
