Recap / Digimon Xros Wars E 7 Volcano Digimon A Giant Eruption
Taiki and friends arrive in the Magma Zone, an extremely volcanically active area, and Zenjirou wonders of there are hot springs nearby. While the group relaxes in the hot springs, they are spotted by a DeathMeramonnote
, who orders his squad of Meramon to attack with the intent of taking Xros Heart prisoner. Shoutmon, Ballistamon and Starmon distract the Meramon while Taiki, Zenjirou and Akari get dressed. DeathMeramon notices Taiki's red Xros Loader just as Taiki DigiXroses Shoutmon and Ballistamon into Shoutmon X2, which fights off the Meramon. DeathMeramon attacks and is more than a match for Shoutmon X2. Taiki then DigiXroses Starmon and the Pickmons into the Rare Star Sword for Zenjirou, who is knocked into the hot spring before he can do anything with it. Cutemon arrives and stops a surviving Meramon from attacking Akari. DeathMeramon tries to attack Cutemon, but Taiki takes the hit. Dorulumon stops DeathMeramon from finishing Taiki off. DeathMeramon's second-in-command, a BlueMeramon, and Dorulumon seem to recognize each other as DeathMeramon calls a retreat.
After the battle, Cutemon heals Taiki and Taiki and Akari wonder why Cutemon and Dorulumon are travelling together. Dorulumon evades the question, but Cutemon says that they are searching for his parents. Dorulumon met Cutemon six months earlier, when he saved Cutemon from a group of Goblimon bandits. Dorulumon tried to leave Cutemon behind, but agreed to take him along upon hearing that Cutemon's parents had been captured by the Bagra Army. Taiki once again asks Dorulumon to join him and again Dorulumon refuses. Taiki runs off after Dorulumon.
DeathMeramon reports Taiki's presence to his superior, AncientVolcamonnote
, who goes into a fiery
rage at the news that Taiki is still uncaptured. DeathMeramon has a group of Yukidarumon literally chill him out. Meanwhile, Taiki explains to Shoutmon that he wants to get Dorulumon to join him because he saw Dorulumon in his dream back on Earth. The group arrives at a ruin that the Bagra Army has enslaved the local Digimon to excavate in search of the Code Crown. BlueMeramon tries to get DeathMeramon to ease up on them, but DeathMeramon orders them to work faster as he considers them expendable. Taiki decides to free the Digimon, but Dorulumon decides to leave with Cutemon. Dorulumon and Cutemon happen across a Bearmon that had been left for dead after collapsing from exhaustion.
That night, Taiki leads a sneak attack on the Bagra Army base to free the prisoners, but walks right into a trap set by DeathMeramon. DeathMeramon tries to steal the Xros Loader, but Zenjirou and Akari keep it away from him. Dorulumon bursts in and incapacitates DeathMeramon's forces so that he can look for Cutemon's parents, whom the Bearmon had spoken to recently. Taiki DigiXroses Shoutmon, Ballistamon and Dorulumon into Shoutmon X3. Shoutmon X3 and DeathMeramon are roughly evenly matched until Cutemon's encouragement causes Dorulumon to fire his horn from Shoutmon X3's shoulder, knocking DeathMeramon off balance. Shoutmon X3 blast DeathMeramon into the wall, but AncientVolcamon arrives in a rage.
- Beam-O-War: Between Shoutmon X3's Chest Blaster and DeathMeramon's Breath Weapon. DeathMeramon's attack starts to get through, but he gets knocked off balance by Dorulumon's horn.
- Blue with Shock: Akari's reaction to DeathMeramon seeing her in the hot spring. The dub skips right to the subsequent freakout.

- Chain Pain: DeathMeramon uses his chains as fiery Combat Tentacles. The dub even renames one of his attacks to Chain of Pain.
