He realized the resentment Geruru had for the Pretty Cure and was able to convince him to capture the Pretty Cure and steal their transformation device. As the Pretty Cure arrive in the world where Fairy School resides for a party, Geruru and Kage were able to successfully abduct their transformation objects and trap them in crystals with the Smile Cures and Dokidoki Cures remaining.
Upon locating the Smile team, Geruru forced EnEn to steal the Smile Pacts from the girls but the planned failed when the Miyuki and co. noticed him. Frustrated, Kage decided to steal the Smile Pact himself, starting with Reika but she managed to spot him and smacked his hand away before he even got the chance. The Smile Cures transformed and engaged in combat with the black silhouette, who was using the Pretty Cure Textbook to counter all of their attacks. Kage was eventually able to steal all their Smile Pacts, reverting their transformation, and imprison them in crystals as well. He then turned into a monitor to show them the state of the other Cures, gloating how he was also able to defeat them before leaving.

Kage approaches the Doki Doki group once again but Cure Happy leaped in and saves them by defeating him with a single punch. Cure Heart thanks her and the two Pink Cures both expressed how glad they are in finally being able to meet each other before jumping back into action. All the Cures fought Kage and his multiple duplicates, with the Smile Cures and Doki Doki Cures teaming up on the largest one. Despite utilizing the information from the textbook, Kage was vanquished by the overwhelming teamwork of Happy and Heart's group. He eventually transformed into a massive spider and fires a giant laser at the Dokidoki Cures but the rest of the Cures arrived to combine their powers for one final attack and defeated him.
The shadowy figure being stunned by his defeat was comforted by Geruru, asking him to stop fighting and explained he was merely jealous of the Pretty Cure. As the two reconciled and held hands, Kage laughs and fades away, leaving the Shadow Crystal that created him behind.
