With the addition of more humans, his forces being decimated by the mysterious youth with a his own Fusion Loader, a livid MadLeomon decides to rectify this turn of events. Taken by Shoutmon to see the Village of Light, Mikey and his friends encounter Jijimon and learn of the Bagra Army before the village is being bombed by a Pteranomon. While Mikey DigiFuses Pickmon Slingshot for Shoutmon and Ballistamon to use to take out the Pteranomon, Angie briefly encounters Cutemon and Dorulumon before being found by Mikey and telling him to to help her find a way return to their world. Fearing his chances of becoming king of the Digi World would be gone if Mikey leaves, Shoutmon attempts to discourage the boy's departure by treating Mikey to a party and then reminding him of his sense of responsibility. However, revealing the presence of other humans and getting upset with Angie while admitting his reasons for Mikey to stay, Shoutmon ends up screwing things up as Mickey ends their friendship and heads into the forest with his friends the next morning. Unfortunately, MadLeomon begins his invasion and unleashes the Orochimon his forces brought with them to corner the children. Though Shoutmon and Ballistamon come to their rescue with Starmon and the Pickmons getting to safety, the children watch MadLeomon absorbs Orochimon to become MadLeomon Orochi Mode and pulverize the two Digimon. However, upon hearing Shoutmon's reason of wanting to become king in order to protect his village and friends, Mikey turns the tide by DigiFusing Shoutmon and Ballistamon into Shoutmon ×2, who sends MadLeomon running after defeating his Orochi Mode form. Nearby, the mysterious girl watches with added interest as Mikey and Shoutmon become friends again.
