Sonic, Tails and Omega arrive outside Big Ben, and Omega warns them that the Phantasmal Fog levels there are dangerous. Mario, Luigi and Toad arrive, also noting the thickness of the fog. Omega says that his circuits may be damaged with prolonged exposure, and Toad also says that he is now struggling to breathe. A group of imposters of Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Tails arrive, which Omega says are more powerful than the ones faced before, and the group challenge them to an Olympic Event.

The group defeat the imposters, causing them to disappear once again and the fog to thin. Toad initially feels better and tries to carry on, but instead ends up collapsing from exhaustion. The group suggests that he heads back to Main Stadium for his own safety and agrees to do so after resting for a while first. Toad passes the walkie-talkie on to Tails, and Omega says that he will stay with Toad and return to the Main Stadium as well to prevent damage to his circuitry. The rest of the group head on to Big Ben.
