With all of Japan finally under his control, Tokichiro discovers that it is not enough, and continous to seek out Spirit Stones. The protagonist arrives in Jurakudai Palace, which Tokichiro has built himself. Though Tokichiro succeeds in avoiding a confronotation with the protagonist the first time, the protagonist is relentless and manages to confront Tokichiro at a party being held in Daigoji. The two come to blows in the very spot they first met. Finally, defeated by the protagonist, Tokichiro returns to his senses when the protagonist slices off his horns. However, it is too late to save him, and Tokichiro bids his old friend goodbye before breathing his last.
Tokichiro is resurrected once more by Maria when she comes to Japan, seeking to stir up dissent in order to obtain Spirit Stones. When he comes to his senses, he sees none other than the protagonist before him. In an attempt to take a blow from the man with the staff that was meant for Tokichiro, the protagonist struggles to resist as the darkness threatens to consume them. Tokichiro saves the protagonist, allowing them to defeat Otakemaru once and for all. This ends a troubled time in Japan's history, and peace visits the land at last. Tokichiro recites a final poem before leaving this plane of existence forever.
