Sumo arrives into the Mana Shrine from the Temple of Mana, inside the forest he meets Fuji's Mother. She tells him that he's become a great Knight of Gemma, and transforms the rusty sword into Excalibur before disappearing. Sumo, prepared, heads forward to confront Julius.

Both Julius and Fuji stand before the great Tree of Mana. He tells him that he's late since he's got the power of Mana, and the time has come for the Empire Neo-Vandole to rise. Julius fights Sumo in a duel, a three against one duel. After Sumo defeats all three, Julius exclaims that he'll see the true power of Mana now. Julius reappears in monster form, and the battle resume once again.

After Julius second defeat, Sumo tells Fuji that Julius is defeated and its all over. Julius' voice is heard telling them its not over yet. He tells Sumo that he'll never leave here alive and traps them. Julius appears before them in a newer form and attacks them both.

When Sumo delivers the final blow, the Tree of Mana disappears. Fuji wonders what she's suppose to do now when her mother appears before them. She tells them that now the tree is lost, they now need a Gemma of the Mana Tree. She tells her to remember what she told before, that they are the seeds of the Mana Tree. They will be a bud called Gemma and they become a tree and the Gemma Knights fight to guard it. Fuji's Mother became the Gemma last time when they lost the tree. Fuji ask if that tree was her, and she confirms it. But, Fuji is the last member of the Mana Family. To preserve the Mana Tree, they need her to stay here and become the Gemma, but nobody else can decide what she can do with her life but herself.

Fuji decides to stay and become the new Mana Tree, but worries that if she's the last one left and when she falls. Her mother tells her that will be the end of the peace. Fuji and Sumo say their goodbyes, but reassures him that she will be here as long as he protects her from the evil. Fuji's Mother tells Sumo to guard her daughter as he's the only Gemma Knight for the Tree now. Before she withers, she ask Sumo to tell her Gemma Knights that she said goodbye and give her thanks to them. Sumo and Fuji share a last goodbye before her mother and her slowly vanishes from Sumo's sight.
