All of Satsuki's forces charge towards the transmitter. Uzu rides his men in a formation called Ultra Goku Uniform Centurion Cavalry. Both Ryuko and Satsuki have a hard time landing hits on Ragyo and Nui. Ragyo uses Absolute Submission that renders all beings with Life Fibers paralyzed with fear. Ragyo has the Primordial Life Fiber wash away Satsuki's forces. Ira struggles to bring his comrades including Mako as he arrives to Ryuko's location. Mako states that they will not give up. This causes Nui to attack Mako, but her hand struck Ira's stomach. After Ira throws Nui up in the air, Ryuko defends Ira and states that she is neither human nor clothing. Mako cries over Ira's death. Ragyo taunts her daughter, and as Satsuki's gang gets pulled into the Primordial Life Fibers, Ragyo laughs at her victory. Yet, Senketsu pierces Ragyo's heart like a drill, canceling Ragyo's Absolute Submission attack. Everyone breaks free by activating their Goku Uniforms. After Ryuko head butts her mother, she joins Satsuki. Satsuki's Elite Four engage Nui who protects the transmitter.

Somehow, Ira drops from the sky and starts ripping the transmitter apart. Everyone is relieved that he is alive due to his titanium belly band. He destroys the transmitter. Then, Satsuki and Ryuko deliver two consecutive, simultaneous attacks to their mother. Ragyo orders Nui to sacrifice her body. Nui complies and cuts off her own head with a smile. After Nui's body is assimilated in the Primordial Life Fiber, Ragyo "wears" Nui and the Primordial Life Fiber, forming a rocket. She soars into the sky to manually activate the lip shaped satellite. Around the world, everyone is slowly engulf by the Life Fibers. Before Ryuko chases her mother, Mako invites Ryuko on a date. Ryuko absorbs everyone's Goku Uniforms. In space, Ryuko reaches her mother and finds out her Scissor Blades are useless against mother due to Ragyo's Absolute Submission. When Ragyo notices she is subconsciously pulling her punches, she gets rid of her humanity. Ryuko charges at her mother and allows herself to get stabbed on purpose. She states that she can absorb Ragyo's Absolute Submission field. The Scissor Blade is not the ultimate weapon that her father had gave her. It is the infinite absorption ability that both Ryuko and Senketsu possesses.

Ryuko orders all Life Fibers to go back into clothing. With the world saved, Ryuko asks her mother to come back home. Ragyo takes her own life by pulling out her heart rather than submitting to her own daughter. Ragyo informs Ryuko that there are Life Fibers still roaming the galaxy and that they will come to this world. Senketsu feels his energy depleting and falls towards the sky to protect Ryuko from burning up in the atmosphere. He bids farewell to Ryuko and tells her to wear cute clothing. With the help of everyone, Satsuki catches Ryuko. The whole gang is reunited and stark naked.
