Though it seemed Ryouma had betrayed the Hunters, Astamon reveals to Tagiru he is the embodiment of Quartzmon’s Terminal and has been manipulating Ryouma the entire time. Assuming his true form, Quartzmon reveals that he used Ryouma to obtain enough Digimon data to construct his main body before fusing into it and burrowing underground to turn Earth into data to asborb. The Old Clock Store Owner has everyone gather around him to lend the power from their Xros Loaders, while having Clockmon temporaryily freeze time to halt Quartzmon’s digitizing of all life on Earth long enough for Tagiru to obtain the Brave Snatcher. Taiki then passes his goggles to Tagiru, asking him to hunt Quartzmon using the combined strength of himself, Tai, Davis, Takato, Takuya and Marcus. While the others are digitized, Tagiru and Arresterdramon proceed to hunt down Quartzmon with the latter assuming Superior Mode and Digi-Xrossing with the Brave Snatcher to destroy Quartzmon at the root.
