However, Hibiki and Saint-Germain were too late, Tiki opened the Divine Gate and transformed into a Divine Weapon. As Tiki was about to destroy the city, Hibiki punched her to stop her, but in a process, a satellite was destroyed, and Hibiki falls unconscious. Back in SONG HQ, Genjuro received a message from Shinji with an information about the "God-Slayer". Shinji then told him that the "God-Slayer" is, in fact, Gungnir. Back on the battlefield, Hibiki regains consciousness and continues to fight Tiki while Saint-Germain deals with Adam, who uses his robotic arm as a sword. Thanks to the power of Gungnir, Tiki can't regenerate herself when damaged. Hibiki then used all the power she had to destroy Tiki once and for all. When Adam has no use for the dying Tiki anymore, he tried to use his robotic arm to absorb the power of the Gods released from her.

Genjuro then called out for Miku as their "trump card" in order to bring Hibiki back. Later, Saint-Germain agreed to assist SONG HQ, though she would rather do it on her own. As the army began to attack the cocoon, it soon hatched and Hibiki has now transformed into a Divine Weapon, and she is out of control when she began to attack. When the girls and Saint-Germain arrived, they hold Hibiki off, giving the members of SONG HQ a chance to inject her with an Anti-LiNKER. Despite their best efforts, Hibiki has broken free from the girls. However, after hearing Miku's voice and being reminded that it's her birthday, Hibiki finally broke free from the Divine Power. Unfortunately, a nuclear missile (WMD or Weapon of Mass Destruction) has been launched from America, heading straight to the location where the girls are at. With no other choice, Saint-Germain decided to stop the missile while singing, with the help of Cagliostro and Prelati, who faked their deaths after their last battles. The Alchemists sacrificed themselves to completely stop a massive explosion. Just when it's all over, Adam used his robotic arm to finally absorb the Divine Power. However, Tiki, who is somehow alive, stopped him from acquiring the Divine Power, giving Hibiki a chance to destroy Adam's arm, along with the Divine Power itself, permanently.

September 30, 2017 (2017-09-30)
After destroying the Divine Power, Hibiki grieves over Saint-Germain's death for a moment. At S.O.N.G. headquarters, Elfnein and the others realized that the Alchemists used their Philosopher's Stones perfect purification to nullify the WMD, but at a great cost of losing their lives in the process. Hibiki wanted to socialize with Saint-Germain when she wished she didn't want any of this to happen and they could have found mutual understanding. Then, as Adam destroys the remains of Tiki, he told the girls that because the Curse of Balal, everyone will never reach mutual understanding. However, Hibiki lectures Adam that trying to understanding people was never in vain and the girls also told him that failure leads to success. Furious that he was lectured by the girls, Adam summons an entire army of Alca-Noise. The girls managed to destroy the Alca-Noise, while Hibiki gets through them to fight Adam. When he is finally weakened, Hibiki used all of her power to hit him. However, Adam's new arm was regenerated, and with that, he showed his true form: A giant robotic demon (as he said that he will have to don the Devil's horns). Adam easily overpowers the girls. While in the decisive battle with Adam, Hibiki heard Saint-Germain's voice and saw her spellcaster gun. As Hibiki tried to get the gun, Adam grabs it and uses the Faust Robe's manifestation energy against Hibiki. When Adam makes his finishing blow, the girls were forced to sing the Superb Song to drain the Faust Robe's energy, with the help of Elfnein and the other operators who used a bypass to divert some of the strain to the Dainsleif in order for them to not explode. After that, the girls transformed their Symphogears into their Last Ignition mode. They managed to fight back Adam, but Hibiki was left vulnerable when her gear wasn't cleaned of the aftereffects. As Adam makes his finishing blow again, the other girls managed to save Hibiki by transferring their Symphogear powers to her. Hibiki, in her Armed Gear form, used all of the powers from the girls to fight back Adam, but he grabs her in attempting to crush her. While doing that, Adam told Hibiki and girls that the Custodians (or Annunaki) were coming to earth (in response to the first and second season when the Curse of Balal is in danger). Fortunately, Chris tells Hibiki break free from Adam's grasp with Armor Purge. After Hibiki transforms one more time, only this time with the help of the spirits of the Alchemists (who will live inside of Hibiki from now on), Hibiki's Gungnir is now turned into a Chrysopoeia form. With that power from the Alchemists, Hibiki finally destroys Adam once and for all when she unleashes a fury of punches that raise him in the air and punches his chest one more time to powering her fists and getting through his torso. Before he explodes into oblivion, Adam share his last words and said: "You may have slaughtered me, but there is no hope for this world. In your tomorrow, in your future lies only despair." Three days later after Adam's death, Elfnein wants to investigate the events about how Hibiki manage to become a vessel for the Divine Power and S.O.N.G. were working with intelligence agencies to hunt down the remnants of the Pavarian Illuminati after their organization is left divided. Genjuro wonders if what Adam said the threat of the Custodians and how to deal with them in the future. At evening, Fudou and Yastuhiro were discussing that America was prohibited from intervening with other countries for a period of a century. Fudou witnessed the Divine Power that rivaled the gods and recommends that Japan should have that kind of power so they could deal with invaders or the loss of others who got killed in further supernatural disasters. Later that night, the girls celebrate Hibiki's birthday at Miku's house. Afterwards, Hibiki asks Miku if what she was doing was right, in which Miku responds that she will always believe in her no matter what. In the epilogue, Elfnein informs Genjuro about Hibiki and the Curse of Balal, and that Hibiki wasn't the only one who got struck by the Shenshou Jing's light, the other person who was also struck by it was none other than Miku.
