The Lord of Terror, now possessing Midgard, continues his attack as he attempts to open a gate to the "world of the demons". Keiichi and Skuld manage to work out what is happening and Belldandy "deletes" Midgard, injuring Keiichi in the process. Confident that the Lord of Terror is gone, the three goddesses and Keiichi head back to the now destroyed temple, unaware that the Lord of Terror has taken possession of Keiichi. He takes the flute of Midgard and leaves Belldandy with the option of killing him or allowing the Earth to be destroyed. Furthermore, the Valkyrie Lind descends, with orders to kill the Lord of Terror and Keiichi in the process if necessary. Belldandy chooses to defend Keiichi, even at the cost of her own life. The Lord of Terror threatens to kill Keiichi in an attempt to force the goddesses to assist him in his aims, prompting Belldandy to offer herself in Keiichi's place. However, when the Lord of Terror discovers that he cannot possess a goddess, Skuld takes advantage of his weakness to force him into a floppy disc instead, which she wipes with a magnet, thus defeating him.
