"I have trusted your demonic powers into the sword and sealed them into the
scabbard
...This sword must never be drawn!...Once it is drawn...you can never go back to being human." Fujimoto told Rin.

This stage is about the bond between the hero and his mentor.

Satan combines with the gate to create the new world, but Rin and Yukio band together using their demonic powers and stopping Satan.

"My dream isn't over yet" Satan said. "How do you intend to survive against your rampaging father!" said Mesphito.
The hero returns to the Ordinary World, but brings back something from the journey so it wouldn't be meaningless.

After the fight with Satan the world is back to the way it once was before the adventure started, that is how the brothers wanted the world to be.

"This world we live in all we want is to protect them" Rin and Yukio said.
