Machina's Struggle (マキナの戦い, Makina no Tatakai?) is the Code Crimson mission of Chapter 7 in Final Fantasy Type-0 and replaces Capturing the Imperial Capital if chosen. The mission takes place on Cae. VI, its initial mission level is 36 and the only allowed participant is Machina.
During this mission, Machina is in l'Cie Mode and thus cannot summon Eidolons or use Magic, but uniquely gains auto-Haste, boosting his movement speed. Furthermore, Special Orders—called Will of the Crystal during this mission—are compulsory during the mission and will activate even if SOs were initially deactivated.
Amidst the dominion's invasion of the imperial capital, Machina—newly branded as a White Tiger l'Cie—aimlessly wanders the streets of Ingram. Just then... (Machina cannot summon Eidolons during this solo mission.)

- Cae. VI – Machina's Struggle
Having turned the tables on the once-omnipotent Militesi Empire, the dominion legions easily overpowered the imperial forces with their overwhelming numbers. The dominion army was on the verge of seizing the imperial capital of Ingram when it encountered the last remaining White Tiger l'Cie, Incognitus. Unable to withstand his incredible power, the legions and cadets fell like flies. Not even their Eidolons could hold back the oncoming l'Cie, and Incognitus made quick work of Rubrum's beasts of war.
The White Tiger l'Cie was last seen heading toward imperial headquarters. Dominion Central Command has received no reported sightings of Incognitus in the field since then.
