Kouichi is finally off Cherubimon's control, but Koji refuses to forgive him. After a lot of persuasion by Takuya and the rest of the group, Kouichi and Koji decide to forgive each other. In route to the Rose Morning Star, Patamon told Koichi that Light and Darkness are brothers and exist for each other, and that Darkness does not have to be evil, unless he chooses to become that way. Afterwards, Cherubimon appears and attacks the group. The kids Spirit-Evolved and fought Cherubimon, but their attack were useless against the Mega Digimon. Hopelessly watching his brother and his friends suffer the pain, Koichi angrily confronted Cherubimon, and told him that he would no longer hide in the darkness anymore. Just when Cherubimon was about to destroy Koichi, the Spirits of Darkness came out from Koji's D-Tector and went over to Kouchi while purifying from Cherubimon's evil. Koichi Spirit-Evolved to Lowemon, and then Slide-Evolved to JagerLowemon. He easily defeated Cherubimon, but it was revealed that that was only an hologram, and that the real one is waiting on Morning Rose Star.
