During a special screening in the Hikari labyrinth, the group chase a giant purple butterfly for Elizabeth. Once Hikari manages to get it to come to her, due to it being her labyrinth, the group decide to take a break in the flower field where they chased it to. Teddie decides to try and capture some of the other butterflys as he wanted to be like Hikari, however it turns out they were Fickle Papillion and attack in self defence, though the group deduce that the giant butterfly had actually tricked them into falling into an ambush.
