While Victor is at the Haijima research facility, he realizes that Nataku's Adolla Burst has been awakened. He releases Shinra from the training room and together they search for Nataku while Company 8 race to their rescue in their "Matchbox". They encounter a small, but powerful mech called a Dominion, controlled by Puppeteer. Maki and Vulcan combine their powers to defeat one Dominion, but Puppeteer has the ability to create more. Meanwhile, Kurono has hold of Nataku and seeks out the weakest of Company 8 to destroy, but he is thwarted by the intervention of Arthur and Shinra. The White Clad watch these events unfold, and Charon intercepts Kurono so that they can capture Nataku. Haumea also becomes involved in the three way battle and destroys all of Puppeteer's Dominions, provoking Puppeteer to call out her massive punisher, Dominion, to fight Haumea.
