Tatsumi manages to subdue Kuro, promising him that Tatsumi will kill him.[17] Tatsumi beats Kuro relentlessly until Incursio, his Imperial Arms, evolves and gets a new golden shine.[18] Tatsumi continues to beat Kuro up until Kirei Kotomine takes Roman Artillery: Pumpkin from Mine's body and kills Tatsumi with it. Tatsumi's death results in the rest of Night Raid attacking Wave's group; Najenda and Susanoo are defeated, but Gilgamesh's arm is ripped off by Lubbock. After destroying Gilgamesh's sword, Lubbock tries to kill Gilgamesh, but is defeated by Wave. Wave's group flee the catacombs before the admins can arrive.[19]

    • Attack on the Jaegers Mansion
      • The Jaegers mansion is attacked by Vice Admiral Momonga and his men. However, they are all defeated by Run, and Momonga is taken hostage. Bols informs Esdeath of the attack, and she arrives back at the mansion after freezing Aokiji and Sango in ice. However, Aokiji and Sango are unthawed.[20]
    • Momonga is tortured and killed by Esdeath.[20]
  • May 20, 2016
    • Momonga's body is burned, along with the remains of his ship.[20]
    • Wave and his group arrive at the Jaegers' mansion, where Run and Bols greet them. However, Esdeath is less than welcoming, knowing that someone in Wave's group was responsible for killing Tatsumi. Esdeath freezes Kuro into a block of ice before Buggy knocks her out and Wave's group flees the mansion.[21]
  • May 21, 2016
    • A peaceful protest is attacked by the White Fang, causing numerous casualties.[22]
  • May 27, 2016
    • The admins find someone similar in appearance to Wave in Stuttgart, West Germany, and they send Rob Lucci after him.[21]
    • Duel of Stuttgart Airport
      • Lucci arrives at Stuttgart Airport, where he finds Wave's group just as they are about to board their flight to the Soviet Union. They reveal their purpose (getting away from Esdeath and unfreezing Kuro), and Buggy stalls so that the rest of the group can get on the plane. However, when Buggy is injured, Kirei Kotomine uses Roman Artillery: Pumpkin and blasts Lucci away with it. However, unbeknownst to Wave's group, Lucci sneaks into the cargo hold. After takeoff, Lucci informs Braden of Wave's group's destination, and Braden informs him that he has a couple of double agents in the KGB. After receiving orders to rendezvous with them, Lucci dozes off.[23]
  • May 28, 2016
    • Upon landing in the Soviet Union, Rob Lucci meets up with the two double agents: Eric Shawn and Sir Jack Dapper. They tell Lucci that they are the first two in a team that Braden is forming to combat Wave's team. Esdeath, having flown to the Soviet Union on her dragon, reveals that she's been eavesdropping on them. Just then, Wave's group arrives at the gate.[24]
    • Battle of Moscow
      • Lucci, Dapper, Shawn, and Esdeath confront Wave's group. While Wave, Buggy, and Kirei Kotomine retreat, Gilgamesh stays behind to unfreeze Kuro. Eric Shawn summons three copies of himself, and they badly injure Kuro; Gilgamesh takes Kuro and retreats. The Red Army arrives at the airport, and Lucci, Dapper, and Shawn retreat.[25] The trio try to evade the soldiers while running up an apartment complex, but Shawn is killed when he falls three stories to his death. Dapper tries firing at the soldiers, but Lucci reminds him that they don't have time for that. At that moment, Esdeath freezes all the soldiers in an ice block and then shatters said ice block, killing all the soldiers. Esdeath offers them a ride back to the United States on her dragon.[26]
    • On the way back to the United States, Esdeath's dragon is nearly attacked by Bailey before Lucci and Dapper explain that Esdeath has joined forces with them. Bailey, although hesitant, teleports them back to the United States.[26]
    • The four meet with Braden and the rest of the applicants for Braden's team. After informing him of Eric Shawn's death and Esdeath's alliance, Braden informs the group of a shipment of Dust arriving on June 2 that is likely to be attacked by the White Fang. Without hesitation, Braden and the applicants set out to protect the shipment.[22]
  • June 2, 2016
    • Battle at the Shipyard
      • The White Fang tries to attack the Dust shipment, but Braden and the applicants kill several members. Madoka Kaname and Inuyasha object to the killings, and Madoka flies away,[27] as does Inuyasha and his group. As more applicants arrive, Killua Zoldyck uses a technique that kills all of the White Fang members in seconds. A disappointed Killua goes along with the rest of the applicants back to the Admin Tower.[28]
    • Rob Lucci confronts Braden about sending him to West Germany. Braden, in return, wishes Lucci a happy birthday.[28]
    • The leader of the White Fang, Adam Taurus, destroys the warehouse and any evidence of a battle having taken place.[28]
