Nazo's memory comes flooding back and tries to defeat Ultron but he is shoved aside easily. Ultron begins an update as he turns Zim and Nazo into trophies with Putin hiding behind a corner in fear, but then Sackboy and Kat appear and hit Ultron hard enough to cause his system to reboot.

The Fighters go into Subspace and go through the great maze again, with all the locations being touched upon. They go up against Ultron. After defeating him, Homura comes into view and Ultron grabs the trophy of Madoka he collected from one of his commander earlier. He introduces the trophy annihilator, a powerful machine that can permanently destroy a trophy. He drops the Madoka trophy, utterly annihilating it. and tells Homura to travel in time. The Fighters of Lapis are shocked as this happens. Homura travels through time, although the rules of Subspace accidentally picks up all the fighters in with her.
Part Two: Age of Ultron
Ultron flings everybody into the future, where he rules and there are thousands of Ultron clones running amuck because of the Mirror of Truths he stole in Fighters of Lapis 4. When he lined two of them up like walls, literally thousands of Ultrons were created due to infinite reflection.
He uses them as disposable pawns and as parts to upgrade his body. Homura is the only other commander he needs, in case something goes wrong and he has to travel through time again. Putin, the only commander that didn’t turn him begs not to be annihilated. Ultron agrees not to annihilate him yet, as he may come into use later although if he finds seeds of betrayal he will destroy Putin entirely.
The Fighters, in the meantime, discover the future isn’t exactly as dystopian as they initially thought. For the most part it looks fairly normal, but they discover the dark side of it as they find out about the Hunger Games and the Ultron Cops. The Fighters are all found to be rebels and are sent to jail. Dib uses his head to escape into the Nightmare World in his head, ending up in the middle of a Hunger Games fight. Not understanding how he got there, Katniss finds him and decides to spare him as he gives her some pork.
The Hunger Games
Katniss and Dib meet up with Johanna as they discuss a way to stop the hunger games with the other tributes. After electrifying a metal tree, the hunger games collapse. The Ultron game makers become upset as they fly away in refuge Ultron ship.
Meanwhile Jake Peralta (who is one of the few human henchmen) comes across the captured Fighters of Lapis and frees them after learning they were wrongfully imprisoned. Holt sees Jake free the prisoners but after learning they were innocent he holds back the Ultron Cops as they escape.
Streets of Ultron
The Fighters of Lapis head down the street only to encounter an Ultron army led by Natalia Poklonskaya. After defeating the army and Natalia, they revive her as Natalia has them follow her to somewhere. Just then, Red Roller crosses path and tries to crush them, but they defeat Red Roller and keep heading to where Natalia is leading them.
Ultron sees how quick the plan is falling apart and decides to send in some clones of the past versions of the Fighters, which are more suspectible to mind control. He also orders Holt in for questioning but Holt is able to convince him he saw “nothing”.
Neo Nomansian Island
The refuge Ultron ship makes a stop at the hide out where other rebels are hanging out: Nomansian Island. Dib and the tributes meet some of the rebels such as Rick and Morty, Lone Ranger, and Fourze.

Neo Nomansian Island II
Back on Nomansian Island, the rebels figure out a plan to take out Ultron and end his reign over the multiverse: there is a weakpoint located underneath Ultron Tower. When the weakpoint is destroyed, it will turn off the power and leave Ultron Prime relatively defenseless.
They head to the Ultron Tower and after getting through all the Ultron Guards, shut the power off.
Soviet Bunker II
In the soviet base they find Putin, who locks most of the challengers out from a forcefield, leaving Samus, R.O.B, Edd, and Nazo to face him off. After defeating Putin, an alarm sounds and they are surrounded by the past versions of NES Mario, NES Luigi, Sporty Peach, Firefighting Patricia, and Twilight Princess Zelda.
They are defeated and sent to Ultron as trophies. Ultron places them in the trophy ahnilation chamber to be destroyed but since the power is off he can’t do anything.
Ryuko arrives at the Honnōji Academy, under attack by Covers. Just then Satsuki appears and attacks Ryuko. When she has been defeated, she sends out a giant bomb to blow up the two of them while she shields herself using a Cover, but then Panty and Stocking appear and slice the bomb up, making it blow up harmlessly. Ryuko and Panty and Stocking chase after the cover only to come across Scanty and Kneesocks.
Tony Stark wakes up in a cave where he is surrounded by Ultron Cops. The Ultron Cops welcome their leader, Ultron Prime.
Ultron Prime grabs Tony Stark and pushes him onto the wall. As he prepares to destroy him, Tony Stark yells to stop, overriding Ultron for a second. We get a flash back of how Ultron was created; to replace the Avengers. Initally things go fine, but then Ultron decides that humanity's greatest enemy is itself and begins a murder spree. It tires of this and decides to control humanity in a police state.
As this flash back happens, we see that Tony Stark left while Ultron was remembering all this crap. Tony Stark breaks out the cave and grabs onto a flying cover, floating down to wherever it's going.
The story then proceeds to flash back to a week ago. Tony Stark, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, and Bruce Banner are at the newly constructed Avengers Tower, enjoying themselves. Tony Stark introduces Ultron, something he has been working on with a guy named Pym.
Two days later, Ultron scans for humanity's greatest foe and finds that it is humanity itself. While the Avengers are fighting Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, Ultron takes the twins after the battle to take down the Avengers. Along the way, they come across a girl named Homura, who has the ability to turn back time, although she only agrees to work for Ultron if he can save Madoka.
Homura turns back time to two days back, and the prototype Ultron comes in and tells the Avengers about his mission. They attempt to take them out, but Ultron sends out Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to attack the Avengers, who take them out easily. Only Hawkeye is able to escape as Ultron proclaims he is starting a "new age!"
Tony Stark lands in Honno City, where he comes across Ryuko and Panty & Stocking fighting Scanty and Kneesocks. He summons his armor and helps them out. After defeating Scanty and Kneesocks, a bunch of Ultron Police come down.
Iron Man grabs the three and heads out of Honno City, with the Ultron Police following them close behind. Iron Man runs out of power and lands behind Ultron Tower.
Pyrra is fighting off some Ultron Police as the world begins to go into rebellion. A giant explosion picks off a couple, revealing Black Rock Shooter. The two battle the Ultron Police when suddenly Mechshark comes down to attack. After a battle with Mechshark, a giant swarm of Ultron Police appear and prepare to enclose the two.
The Generator Room
Tony Stark breaks apart his suit to create something to scale the walls of the Ultron Tower and proceeds to break into a window. Some Ultron Guards come over, but are defeated.
Tony Stark makes his way to the generator room to see if he can delay progress on getting the generator back up. Ryuko and Panty & Stocking find the trophy annihilation room and free everyone in there. Just then, they come across NES Mario, NES Luigi, Sporty Peach, Firefighting Patricia, and Twilight Princess Zelda, who battle them. The battle manages to shake the brain washing off the past versions of the characters.
NES Mario, NES Luigi, Sporty Peach, Firefighting Patricia, and Twilight Princess Zelda join the Fighters of Lapis. As Ryuko heads down to the Generator Room to see Tony's progress, she sees that Ultron Prime has his hands on him.
Ultron Prime screeches that he plans to destroy Tony Stark, and he sends out "Ultron Mecha" to battle the Fighters of Lapis. Ultron Mecha slams all the Fighters of Lapis out of the tower and battles them in free fall. As the Fighters of Lapis fight Ultron Mecha, Ultron Prime grabs Tony and throws him back into the cave, as he states it's sort of a ironic death he has in mind, where he will build his human form using Tony as his "box of scraps".
The Cave II
Ultron Prime prepares turns Tony Stark and grabs his hand held version of the trophy annihilator. As he prepares to use the device, a arrow shoots his arm, make him miss. The arrow is revealed to be Hawkeye, who is hiding in the ceiling. He transmits a message to Black Widow, who then gets Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver over to the cave.
The three of them battle Ultron Prime, who calls over Homura and shakes up her shield, creating a vortex.
The Road II
Pyrra and Black Rock Shooter are saved by the RBWY team consisting of Ruby, Yang, Weiss, and Blake. They take down the Ultron Police, and notice a giant mecha in the distance and run towards it, helping the Fighters of Lapis defeat it. They notice a giant vortex forming in a nearby cave and run towards it.
Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch are trapped in a vortex in which Ultron Prime intends to turn time back, but in his haste, has caused a rift in time and space known as a time vortex. The three traverse the free floating ruins of time to get to Ultron, who is in the middle of the vortex.
When they reach him, they grab the shield and give it back to Homura. The vortex stops, but Ultron Prime isn't done as he notices all the Fighters waiting for him at the front of the cave.
The Cave III
Ultron Prime grabs the Madoka trophy and annihilates it, telling Homura to travel back in time so he can retry again. As Homura grabs her shield in a sad way, Madoka appears in the giant crowd.
The Nostalgia Critic reveals that they used the Irate Gamer's ability to plagiarize things to create a plagiarize version of Madoka's trophy, which they found in the trophy annihilation room. Homura hits Ultron Prime's weak point and he collapses to the ground with relatively little power. As Ultron Prime says something about just wanting to protect humanity, Tony Stark tells him that Ultron is now the greatest threat to humanity. Realizing this, Ultron Prime destroys himself and the other Ultron copies and Homura travels back to the first timeline, back to the stadium.
Part Three: A Old Enemy Returns
All of the Fighters of Lapis return to the stadium and decide to have a tournament. In this level of the story mode, you choose a character and go through ten opponents. After the tournament has been won, something goes awry and the sky turns black like subspace.
It is subspace.
The Fighters of Lapis venture into subspace and into the Door of Tabuu to figure out what's going on. As they approach the door, the ever familiar theme of Tabuu begins to play.
Behind the doors is revealed to be Tabuu and Tabuu. Confused by the presence of two Tabuus, Tabuu explains that when his trophy got sucked up in the black hole in Fighters of Lapis 3, it just sent him to a new timeline. He met his past self, who agreed to help him in making sure that the Fighters of Lapis would know who he was and what had happened, to show them that he cannot truly die.
He sends out Past!Tabuu to fight the Fighters of Lapis. After Past!Tabuu is defeated, Modern!Tabuu attacks them, sending out past copies of themselves out to attack. After defeating Modern!Tabuu, he yells as he's sent into the depths of reality and the Fighters of Lapis land in the real world.

The line at Wendy's extends into the street, with cars blaring their horns. Mario orders a burger with Luigi coming with a chocolate shake. They say hello to Homura and Madoka and tell them about this Tabuu guy.
If it's a fight Tabuu wants, it's a fight he'll get.
