In Nightmare's realm, he muses how Hercules has returned only to go insane with power. He plots to use this to his advantage, only for Amatsu-Mikaboshi, now calling himself the Chaos King, to take him by surprise and tear out his heart. Nightmare pleads with the Chaos King, reasoning that they are practically brothers, thriving in the darkness. Chaos King refuses, stating that even he needs creation to thrive. As he destroys Nightmare's heart, he declares that with his death, creation will return to nothingness.
