Rap Battle: Zero
Epilogue: The Final Farewell
Inside the brain, Melony found Axol who is still chained, and desperately tries to break him free, but failed. Outside, 0 slowly starts to loosen from Mario’s grip, so SMG4 shouts at Melony to hurry up as he and SMG3 are losing control. Back inside, Axol states that they’re out of time and indicates that killing him is the only option to kill 0, but Melony doesn’t want to let him go, so he comforts her by saying she is the strongest girl he knows. Before she complies, however, Melony shows him his Two Piece manga, where she had added the part where she accepts Axol's confession. This finally confirms their relationship, before they share their only kiss. After finally getting his crush to confess, he says his final words "thanks for your adventure" before Melony slashes him, destroying 0's brain and putting an end to his malevolent plans for now by the time she leaves it. This means the gang has won as Mario reverts back to his normal size, dazed and finally regaining consciousness. All the spirits heading for the portal start to head back down to their rightful worlds and homes. When Meggy goes up to her to congratulate her and asks where Axol is, Melony breaks down crying in response with Meggy and the others watching with sadness.
- Winner: All
A few days later, Melony is seen finishing Axol's Two Piece manga in his New Donk City apartment. The rest came to console Melony, with Meggy mentioning losing someone else in the process. They note that Axol had contributed a lot to their cause. Just as they were talking, SMG1 and SMG2 appeared to inform them that with the new universe closed and the memes restored, they had to hide the Guardian Pods to prevent any sort of thing happening again, and then telling SMG4 and SMG3 about the meaning of SMG, which actually stands for Super Meme Guardians, and SMG3 and SMG4 have finally buried the hatchet of being enemies, and SMG3 tells his doppelganger that they can train their new meme powers, and leaves off back to the Internet Graveyard (which, with SMG3's disappearance from his home almost a whole month ago, has Starbucks flooded with Ugandan Knuckles partying), additionally telling him not to mess with him on Saturdays, as he calls them "special SMG3 time". After the other three SMGs left, the gang then gave their suggestions to Melony about the ideas for the conclusion of Two Piece.
In the end, the Guardian Pods, including of that of Zero's, are docked in a USB port until Luke plugs out the cable and then removing the port with the Guardian Pods on it.
Positive and Negative Receptions
