Eight: "Heart of Stone"
Adapts "If I Only Had A Heart"
While Arukenimon and Mummymon hatch a new plot involving the balance-maintained Destiny Stones, the confused BlackWarGreymon encounters Agumon, who sets him on the path to discover the meaning of his existence. He is drawn to the site of the first Destiny Stone, which is now under attack from a Knightmon created by Arukenimon, but the DigiDestined soon arrive and engage the villains in battle. Things look bleak for our heroes, but then BlackWarGreymon appears on the scene, sending the villains fleeing. But then, he turns on the Destiny Stone and destroys it. As the kids watch a tornado rip across the landscape, Davis vows that they'll protect the other stones.
Chapter Nine: "Cody"
Adapts "A Chance Encounter," "Cody Takes A Stand" and "Stone Soup"
BlackWarGreymon's continued destruction of Destiny Stones throws the DigiWorld out of balance and sees Digimon appearing on Earth. The kids work to send them back, but the battles take their toll on T.K., and his anger becomes evident to Cody, who turns to Matt for advice and learns of the time T.K. lost Angemon after the battle with Devimon. When protecting another Destiny Stone, Cody faces off against BlackWarGreymon and almost perishes, before T.K. has Angemon save him. The stone is lost to BlackWarGreymon's wrath, but Izzy quickly directs the kids to the final stone, and the race is on to get there first. Paildramon and Silphymon are cut down in the attempt to save the stone, but then T.K. and Cody are able to DNA Digivolve their Digimon into Shakkoumon!
Chapter Ten: "Unlocking the Boss"
Adapts "Kyoto Dragon," "A Very Digi Christmas" and "Dramon Power"
Shakkoumon holds off BlackWarGreymon, and when the kids - with no other ideas - try using their D-3s on the Destiny Stone, they free Azulongmon, one of the four guardians of the DigiWorld, from the prison he was sealed in by the Dark Masters. Azulongmon offers BlackWarGreymon peace and understanding, and BlackWarGreymon disappears into his light. Azulongmon explains his nature to the DigiDestined and warns them of the battles ahead - which all arrive very quickly, as Control Spires start appearing all across the Earth! While Davis and Ken battle Mummymon and a Triceramon, Izzy calls on Gennai to help them. Using a portion of Azulongmon's power, Gennai gives Veemon and Wormmon the power to Mega Digivolve into Imperialdramon, who dispatches the Triceramon... but a shadowed figure has been watching the battle...
Chapter Eleven: "Con-Spire-ing Darkness"
Adapts "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 1," "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2," "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 3," and "Invasion of the Daemon Corps"
The old and new DigiDestined travel all across the globe to round up the wild Digimon that have appeared along with the Control Spires, meeting up and being aided by DigiDestined from other countries in the process, but upon their return to Japan, there is no rest for the weary. Ken is struck with nightmares of his time in the DigiWorld as a child, reports of kidnapped children fill the news, and the vicious SkullSatamon appears in Tokyo to wreak havoc. The new DigiDestined battle him together, but they are all defeated, with each of them being De-Digivolved, except for the paralysed Imperialdramon. The other Digimon give Imperialdramon their energy, allowing him to Mode Change into his Fighter Mode and destroy SkullSatamon.
Chapter Twelve: "Secrets"
Adapts "Invasion of the Daemon Corps," "Dark Sun, Dark Spore," "The Dark Gate," "Duel of the WarGreymon" and "BlackWarGreymon's Destiny"
As a truck pulls up in front of the victorious DigiDestined, a dark, evil Digimon - Daemon - materialises alongside it, and convinces Ken to enter the truck by showing him its contents: the "kidnapped" children. Ken boards the truck and it drives off, but Ken discovers the kids are not alone in it - also present is Yukio Oikawa, a mysterious man who knows of the Dark Spore that entered Ken's body the first time he was in the DigiWorld. He copies the Spore, but then the truck is attacked by the other DigiDestined and Ken is freed. As Daemon reappears, Imperialdramon enters the fray, and a fierce battle ensues. Dark power swirls in the air around Daemon, but with the help of the other kids, Ken taps into the power of the spore in his body and turns the darkness against Daemon, opening a gate that sends him away. The kids are freed, and Oikawa has vanished - but Cody encounters him soon after outside his home, but is protected from him by his grandfather, who reveals that Cody's father, Hiroki, was Oikawa's best friend as a child. Meanwhile, Tai, Kari and their Digimon investigate Oikawa's home... only to bear witness to the explosive reappearance of BlackWarGreymon!
Chapter Thirteen: "Mega Face-Off"
Adapts "Duel of the WarGreymon," "BlackWarGreymon's Destiny" and "Oikawa's Shame"
Agumon becomes WarGreymon, and he and Imperialdramon confront BlackWarGreymon above the clouds. The final explosion sends them all crashing back to Earth, where Agumon tries to convince BlackWarGreymon that the meaning of life is different for everyone. Oikawa, meanwhile, is pursuing his plan with the Dark Spores, absorbing the energy of one of them from one of the kidnapped children into whom he planted the copies he made from Ken's. Cody's grandfather makes him confront his memories of Hiroki, and Oikawa recalls a darkness that came to him from the sky three years before. Oikawa turns the energy he has absorbed on Cody's grandfather, but BlackWarGreymon appears to intercept the blast. He struggles to resist further attacks, but perishes, using the last of his strength to seal the gate to the DigiWorld. Knowing he needs more power, Oikawa gathers all the children with implanted spores together, and absorbs the energies in them to open a gate to a dimension bordering the DigiWorld. The DigiDestined pursue him into the other world, where they watch him destroy Arukenimon and Mummymon and absorb their energies. With that final action, dark energy explodes from within Oikawa, and he is transformed, revealing the truth at last - Myotismon lives again!
Final Chapter: "An End and a Beginning"
Adapts "Oikawa's Shame," "The Last Temptation of the DigiDestined" and "A Million Points of Light"
Myotismon, now in the Mega form of MaloMyotismon, subjects the DigiDestined to illusions of their greatest desires. Ken sees his older brother again, but Wormmon is able to make him see the truth, and he breaks the other kids free from their illusions, and they are able to summon enough positive energy to make their Digimon Digivolve into all their separate forms at once. MaloMyotismon, weakened, flees into the DigiWorld, where he gathers more dark power and blasts the pursuing Digimon. All across the globe, the DigiDestined of different countries send the light of their Digivices into the DigiWorld, restoring the Digimon, and giving Imperialdramon the power to summon his Giga Crusher, which destroys MaloMyotismon, freeing Oikawa's spirit.
Twenty-five years into the future, we learn the future of all the DigiDestined, the DigiWorld, and the Earth.
The cast page retains the "Takakashi" misspelling of T.K.'s surname.
Omissions, alterations and adaptations continue. In this volume:
Pleasantly, Ryo is referred to by name in Ken's flashback -
not that it'll make much sense to the majority of English
Azulongmon's Digi-Core is referred to as a piece of his Destiny Stone by Gennai.
Amusingly, in the epilogue, Davis comments that Matt and Sora got married, "weirdly enough." The manga has contained no reference to their relationship up until this point (no room for it!), so this may be a comment on that - or possibly that the writer of the English Adaptation (who is clearly well-versed in the English anime dub) didn't think much of the pairing.
