The Defectors gather around Dante to celebrate his victory. Judith gives him a big hug. "You really did it, brother! You've overcome everything put in your way." Cassius looks more concerned than the others. "Yes, you defeated a powerful foe, Dante. But the hardest part comes next. Who knows what Shirou is planning? And knowing him, he's been watching every fight, studying the strengths and weaknesses of every Digimon." Dante smirks confidently. "Come on, he might be a nerd, but nobody is that observant. He couldn't see a fist if it punched him in the face." "Trust me, Shirou has always been two steps ahead of everyone. From the time he was very young, he's always been scheming and planning. Tread carefully, Dante. Shirou is going to test your abilities." Sakiko grabs Dante by the arm and pulls him aside. Wormmon jumps out of Dante's arms and crawls up Judith's leg, sitting on her head.
Sakiko talks to Dante in the corner of the dugout. "I didn't think you had it in you, but you defeated Revan, even with your limited experience. I'm so sorry, Dante. I'm sorry for dragging you into this. You've had to learn twice as fast as most tamers. Trust me, there's more to Digimon than battling. Don't get the wrong idea about tamers." Dante puts his hand on Sakiko's shoulder. "You don't have to apologize. If it wasn't for you, I never would have met all these wacky friends, and I never would have become Wormmon's tamer. Yes, it has been difficult. I never would have thought I would be winning this tournament. My money would of been on Revan, Cassius, or TJ. I don't know what Shirou is going to do, but people have been underestimating me this whole time. Trust me, Sakiko, I will do everything I can to get the data core. Then we can finally bring your Digimon partner back. I can't believe I have never met them." Sakiko smiles, then frowns and looks down. "You might not like them. My partner might be the most evil out of all our Digimon." Dante gives Sakiko a big hug. So much has happened since Dante and Judith moved to Japan. Sakiko takes off a necklace and puts in around Dante's neck. "This is a rare stone from the Digital World. Legend has it that it will bring good fortune to the wearer. Although it hasn't seemed to work out for me. Maybe it will help you against Shirou."
Dante examines the necklace. At the end is a small violet gem. "Thank you, the color is beautiful. I'll deal with Shirou." Dante makes his way towards the doorway of the dugout. Judith walks up and takes Wormmon off her head, and hands them to Dante. "Show them why nobody messes with our family and gets away with it. Make Dad proud." Dante feels uncomfortable thinking about their father. What would he think if he knew Dante was a Digimon tamer? Now was the time to prove to himself that he could live up to the expectations Dante has carried with him all his life. "I won't let you down, sis." Dante gives Judith a hug and walks out of the dugout. "We are ready, Shirou. Give it your best shot. Throw whatever you got at us, in the end it doesn't matter." Shirou sounds a loud siren, signaling the final battle. "Ladies and gentlemen, for better or worse, Dante has emerged victorious, and has the opportunity to obtain the data core. However, none of you will be able to witness his tragic defeat." Shirou activates the facility's computer system. Both teams are downloaded into suspended animation inside the hard drive. "What did he do to them, Dante?!" "Send them back right now!" "Ha ha ha! No need to worry, Dante, you're next!" Shirou downloads Dante and Wormmon's data.
Dante and Wormmon enter inside the computer program. They appear to be in a vast space, surrounded by large data chips as platforms. Shirou's face appears in the black sky. "Here we are, the area where our battle will take place." "This is bogus! How am I gonna have a fair fight when you can control the reality around us?!" "Do not worry. If I was going to cheat to kill you, I would have ended all of your miserable lives a long time ago. I am a man of honor. Simply defeat my latest pet project, and you win the battle." Shirou appears with Keramon on a platform far away. Keramon digivolves to Chrysalimon, with several electrical wires connecting to surrounding machinery. One of the wires attaches to the back of Shirou's neck. "My DNA is hard wired into the circuitry. Defeating me is nearly impossible." Shirou deploys a shield around Chrysalimon's machine form. "Argh, this is insane! Wormmon, let's show this creep what it means to have heart and soul." "I've been waiting too long to kick your skinny ass, Shirou. Bring it!"
