Shun, Saori and Tatsumi hide themselves at a small house in the middle of the forest, in order to protect the Gold Cloth's helm. Meanwhile, the Fire Saint arrives at Japan and burns the Kido's mansion with his flame attack. Tatsumi and Saori wants to return, but Shun stops them, reminding Saori how important it is to protect the Gold Helm. Tatsumi disagrees and flies to Kido Mansion, being captured by the Fire Saint and some soldiers from the Sanctuary. Under torture, he tells them where the Gold Helm is. Shun has troubles in trying to put out the firespots caused by Fire Saint's flame attacks, and this is decisive for the battle, since he can't put out the fire and defend himself at the same time.
Eventually, Shun falls in the middle of the flames, but suddenly a hurricane begins, blowing the flames away, and a man appears from the nothing, carrying Shun on his arms: Phoenix Ikki! Ikki is back from the hell, and he is no longer a servant of the Sanctuary. He kills the Fire Saint quick
