Mario, Luigi, Toad, Sonic and Tails meet Omochao back at the Main Stadium, which is now covered in rainbow colored Phantasmal Fog. The group is unsure how the fog has returned, as there are no more fog machines around the stadium, and decide to look around and investigate. The group then hear a cry from the fog and head to investigate. Cream and Cheese are also in the stadium and wonder what is going on when they are approached by imposters of Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Tails, who challenge them to an Olympic Event. A red and yellow Shy Guy looking on are scared off by the odd behaviour of the group and leave the stadium. The real characters arrive to help Cream and Cheese, explaining what is happening and taking on the imposters.

The group defeat the imposters, causing them to once again disappear, and Cream and Cheese thank the group for saving them. Toad notes that they currently have no leads on the cause of the fog at the moment, until Omega, having recovered some more of his memory, suggests that they investigate at Stonehenge. As Tails was planning to head there anyway and the group had no other ideas, they decide to head for Stonehenge immediately, though Omochao hands Toad a walkie-talkie so that they can stay in contact should they need to. Mario, Luigi, Toad, Sonic, Tails and Omega head to Stonehenge, while Omochao, Cream and Cheese wait behind at the Olympic stadium.
