Meanwhile, Sumeragi leads Celestial Being in returning to their asteroid base, where Setsuna and Allelujah retrieve the 0-Raiser and the GN Archer. A subsequent test run of combining 00 Gundam's Twin Drive System with the 0-Raiser's Trans-Am System reveals the mobile's suit's true potential, surpassing even Celestial Being's design expectations.

|After the Memento Mori's firing, Katharon begins planning an attack in space to destroy the superweapon. Nena Trinity expresses discontent with Wang Liu Mei for helping the people who killed her brothers. Tieria, after witnessing the devastation, decides to tell his comrades about the Innovators. When A-Laws forces led by Kati attack Celestial Being's asteroid base, everyone are forced to flee and Anew Returner joins the crew as the Ptolemaios II's pilot. During the ensuing battle, Ian Vashti is injured, leaving Saji to deliver the 0-Raiser to the 00 Gundam. The combined unit, the 00-Raiser, is able to easily outperform the A-Laws attackers, but when Setsuna activates the 00-Raiser's Trans-Am system, he and everyone in the area are affected by the particles and are able to hear the voices of everyone in range of the particle output - including Saji and Louise, who are shocked to learn that the other is in the action and on opposing sides.|

|The 00-Raiser's Trans-Am abilities enable it to outclass and outmaneuver the Innovators' mobile suits, forcing them to flee in escape pods as their units are destroyed. In the aftermath of the battle, Ribbons orders Revive Revival and Bring Stabity to capture the 00; the Innovators question Ribbons' true knowledge of Aeolia's plan and the Twin Drive System. Saji, Louise, and Setsuna cope with Saji and Louise's positions on opposing sides; Louise concludes Saji has always been a member of Celestial Being and strives to forget him, while Saji struggles with the decision to fight and save Louise or leave Celestial Being to be with her. After the Memento Mori's second barrage destroys a military base and a nearby refugee camp, Sergei is ordered to force witnesses from the Federation Army to conceal this information. Memento Mori fires again and annihilates half of an incoming Katharon attack force, surprising Celestial Being and Katharon that the weapon can fire into space; without the element of surprise, the operation is at risk.|

"Memento Mori Kōryakusen" (メメントモリ攻略戦)
|December 28, 2008||August 10, 2009|
|Katharon's offensive against the Memento Mori goes poorly, with A-Laws' superior units both nullifying the resistance's missile attacks and decimating their obsolete mobile suits. The 00-Raiser's timely arrival saves the fleet from being completely wiped out as Setsuna single-handedly takes on the A-Laws forces and a new Gadessa mobile suit piloted by Hiling. The Ptolemaios II approaches the Memento Mori head-on in its blind spot, but is soon forced into the laser's firing path; however, the ship miraculously survives the attack by using Arios' Trans-Am to dodge, and ensures its safety with Cherudim's new Shield Bit system. Thanks to Nena Trinity's leaked information, Tieria's Buster Cannon and a precise hit from Lockon exploits a weakness in the Memento Mori and destroys the superweapon, taking Arba Lindt's life in the process.|

Bushido falls back as Setsuna vows to change for Neil's sake.

|Despite the best efforts of the 00-Raiser to destroy the second Memento Mori, killing Devine Nova in the process, the beam fired from the badly damaged satellite weapon is still sufficient to severely damage the elevator to the point that it sheds its outer shell towards the surface below. The Gundams' efforts to destroy the falling debris are helped by the combined efforts of Marie's GN Archer, Katharon, the Federation Army, and Kati's A-Laws forces after Sumeragi broadcasts an appeal for help. In the aftermath, also helping in the matter with Louise in spite of orders, Sergei Smirnov's son Andrei kills Hercury and associates his father with the coup.

|Four months after the destruction of the Africa Tower, the world is a different place: the AEU's orbital elevator is rebuilt; the entire Federation military is absorbed into A-Laws and Katharon's members are systematically hunted down. Despite their success in destroying the second Memento Mori, Celestial Being endures wave after wave of A-Laws attacks, thanks to an oblivious Anew's networking with the Innovators. Tieria suggests to the Ptolemaios II crew that the time is right for them to take back Veda. For that purpose, Sumeragi designs a plan to capture an Innovator and the plan begins as the A-Laws attack yet again.

Wang gives Setsuna the coordinates to Veda. He returns to the 00-Raiser, where Mr. Bushido challenges him to a duel, revealing himself as Graham Aker. Nena catches up to Wang and kills her. But knowing she would eventually turn on them, Ribbons takes control of Nena's Haro and tells her that someone's coming to deliver judgment on her. Although Nena thinks the person is Ali al-Saachez, it is actually Louise who delivers the killing blow on her, finally avenging the deaths of her parents and relatives at the cost of her sanity. During the duel, Graham and Setsuna appear to each other in a GN particle-induced alternate reality, where Setsuna, exhibiting signs of becoming a purebred Innovator, makes a revelation: Aeolia Schenberg created the GN Drives and Celestial Being for the sole purpose of preparing all of humanity for innovation.|

"Inochi no Hana" (命の華)
|March 15, 2009||September 14, 2009|
|Despite his apparent death, Ribbons emerges and reveals that he used Veda to transfer his consciousness into another body. After dealing with Regene's treachery by having Ali al-Saachez shoot him, Ribbons reveals his massive colony ship to Celestial Being and fires a GN-Drive-powered particle cannon, destroying most of the A-Laws fleet. Celestial Being assaults the Innovators' colony ship and are countered by a swarm of Gaga units, which assume Trans-Am mode and launch waves of kamikaze attacks. In the ensuing battle, Patrick Colasour sacrifices himself to defend Kati's ship and the Seravee is completely wrecked by Hiling and Revive in their new Trans-Am-equipped suits. In the meantime, Setsuna and Saji confront Louise and Andrei; after disabling Andrei's Ahead, Setsuna moves in on the Regnant while Saji contacts Louise. The Ptolemaios II manages to enter the colony under cover from the Arios and GN Archer, but the ship is quickly infiltrated by hordes of automatons. Lockon fights a losing battle against Ali al-Saachez in his rebuilt Arche Gundam, while Soma's GN Archer runs out of particles and is hit by a Gaga unit. Sumeragi heads out to face the automatons swarming the Ptolemaios II, but is shocked to find they are accompanied by Billy Katagiri, the supplier of the Innovators' Trans-Am systems, who then pulls a gun on Sumeragi. Inside Veda's core, Ribbons is stunned that Tieria managed to survive Seravee's destruction and is now facing him at gunpoint.|
|March 22, 2009||September 14, 2009|
|The battle between the 00-Raiser and the Regnant comes to its conclusion when a Gaga attacks them both. Surviving the attack, Setsuna has Saji take Louise to safety before Hilling and Revive attack the 00-Raiser. Meanwhile, inside Veda's core, Tieria corners Ribbons and reveals that he knows the truth behind their existence before Ribbons kills him. Elsewhere, Louise finds herself in the company of Saji and attacks him, only to suffer a nervous breakdown upon finding out that he kept his ring. As the battle escalates with Hiling and Revive, Setsuna resorts to the 00-Raiser's Trans-Am system, which triggers his abilities as a pure Innovator and he intercepts the thoughts of his friends, comrades, and enemies. Frustrated with the grim nature of the situation, Setsuna unconsciously activates the 00-Raiser's Trans-Am Burst system and blankets the battlefield in pure GN particles, driving Hiling and Revive off while causing a momentary ceasefire among everyone. Seizing the moment, Setsuna infiltrates the colony and closes in on Veda's position. Meanwhile, Tieria links his mind with Veda, severing Ribbons' own connections and activating the Seraphim Gundam's Trial System to shut down all the Innovators' units. With Veda secured, the forces of Celestial Being wrap up their battles, including Lyle as he kills Ali to avenge his family and gains a new conviction. Setsuna locates Veda's core and finds Tieria dead but no sign of Ribbons. Before he can pursue Ribbons, Tieria reveals his presence inside Veda to Setsuna and explains the entirety of Aeolia Schenberg's plan to him. Setsuna departs for the Ptolemaios but when Ribbons shoots down the Seraphim in his Reborn's Gundam, he prepares to do battle one final time in the 00-Raiser.|
|March 29, 2009||September 21, 2009|
|In the final confrontation between Setsuna and Ribbons, the 00-Raiser is heavily damaged by Ribbons and the other Innovators; however, assistance from the other Meisters evens the odds. In the ensuing chaos, Allelujah/Hallelujah and Lockon respectively kill Hilling and Revive while Ribbons and Setsuna are exhausted from a round of heavy fighting. However, Ribbons manages to steal one of the 00's GN Drives, which was 0 Gundam's, and puts it into the abandoned 0 Gundam. Setsuna, in turn, takes the remaining GN Drive and installs it in the rebuilt Exia R2. After another difficult duel, Ribbons and Setsuna run through each other with their swords but Setsuna emerges the victor when the 0 Gundam explodes. In the epilogue, the Federation reforms as its new president disbands the A-Laws and pushes for better global peace; Saji and Louise rekindle their relationship; Allelujah and Marie leave Celestial Being to search for the meaning of their existence; Andrei Smirnov stays in the military to preserve peace like his parents; Patrick Colasour and Kati Mannequin (now a brigadier general) get married; Klaus and Shirin work as politicians in the Federation Assembly; Marina returns with the children to lead a rebuilt Azadistan; Graham Aker is seen visiting Billy Katagiri in his office. Setsuna and Lyle, the latter now fully embracing his identity as Lockon, leave with Celestial Being until another armed intervention is needed as Tieria disappears into Veda to watch over the world.|
