In the forest, Takatora is saved by the Over Lords and introduced to their leader Rosyuo who tells him of their past as the Femshinmu people and the secrets of Helheim. Later, Kouta, Kaito, and Mitsuzane all search the forest for Sid, but Sid has set a trap for Kouta. Then Kouta fights with Zangetsu Shin in Helheim Forest, unaware that it is actually Mitsuzane attacking him using his brother's weapons.
- Cassandra Truth: Kaito is fully aware of Micchy's FaceHeel Turn, having witnessed him shoot Kouta in the back in #26; however, he doesn't bother to tell Kouta (though he has been hinting at it) because he's aware this trope will be in effect. He even tries to suggest to Kouta that there might be a traitor in their midst; when Kouta brushes it off, Kaito leans in towards Micchy (who's shooting him a Death Glare) and whispers "See? He wouldn't believe me even if I told him."
- Dramatic Irony: Kouta gives a speech on how he never would have gotten as far as he has if he didn't have trust in his friends. He doesn't know that he's saying this to Micchy, who has usurped his brother's role as Zangetsu Shin and is now trying to murder his former best friend out of hatred and jealousy.
- Oh, Crap!: Micchy when his plan to impersonate Zangetsu Shin and attack Kouta provokes Kouta into fighting back.
- Poor Communication Kills: Averted yet again where, instead of operating under any mistaken assumptions or sense of conflict, Roshuo and Takatora have an open and direct talk about what both sides are, what both sides want, and how both sides had/will be trying to survive the forest. Sure, it makes it perfectly clear how screwed up everything is, was and will be, but at least everyone is on the same page!
