Hakurei finally defeats and seals Hypnos' soul by using his most powerful technique, the Seikishiki Tenryouha, with the aid from his deceased fellow Saints from the last Holy War. However, Hakurei is murdered by Hades just as he was about to destroy the dark barrier. Shion, enraged, attacks Hades causing him no harm. Amidst all this debacle, Dohko, Tenma and Yato arrive to join Shion and Yuzuriha. The Pegasus Saint fights Hades, but the King of the Underworld overpowers him. On the verge of an imminent death, Tenma is safely teleported by Shion along with Yato and Yuzuriha. Dohko stays behind and distracts Hades long enough to ensure his comrades escape, seemingly sacrificing himself in the process.
