They go to a park to rest and Candy and Hummy greeted each other. Before they realize what's going on, several spawns of Fusion appears and they give chase. Kanade, Ellen and Ako also joined in and they quickly transformed in an alley. Miyuki is surprised by them, and she too transformed into Cure Happy. They chase the spawn down to a harbor front and starts battling it. Miyuki defeats one with Happy Shower, while the Suite Pretty Cure♪ Team used their special attacks on the rest of the spawns. Ayumi and the others arrived, but Suite Pretty Cure♪ left before Miyuki could introduce them.
Ayumi took Fu-Chan to her room and told her to eat so that it can become bigger. At the same time, Tart was preparing some Miracle lights for the upcoming battle and the next day, Fu-Chan actually grew bigger (After devouring the neighbour's dog last night). Ayumi took Fu-Chan around and they even play videos game together. Her mother came in and Fu-Chan change into an armband. Ayumi's mother told her not to play video games which she get upset and left the house. Miyuki mets her again, however Fu-Chan mistakens her as an enemy and attack her. The Smile Pretty Cure! team has realized what is going on and transformed. They used their special attacks but each time, Fu-Chan grew stronger and faster after absorbing their attacks.
The Suite Pretty Cure♪ team has also arrived at the scene; however, Ayumi intervenes and Fu-Chan reverted to it's original form. She quickly grabs it and runs away. Ayumi returns home and her mother scolds her again. This time, Fu-Chan devours her mother, which shocks Ayumi. Fu-chan mistakens that Ayumi hated everything in the city and began to summon all the spawns to attack the city. Ayumi tries to find Fu-Chan and met with the Smile! and Suite♪ Pretty Cure teams. Ayumi blams herself for causing all these troubles. However, Cure Happy tells her that they will bring Ayumi to convince Fu-Chan to stop it.
The girls started running towards the tower where Fu-Chan and battle several spawns. Along the way, a spawn tried to attack Ayumi when Potpourri protects her. The Heartcatch Pretty Cure! and the Fresh Pretty Cure! teams have also arrived and began battling with them too. The spawns then tries to throw a large ship liner into the city and both Smile Pretty Cure! and Suite Pretty Cure♪ team hold it off. Tart gave everyone a Miracle Light and shine in the city. The Max Heart, Splash Star and Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo! Teams also soon arrive and come to their aide as well.
As they kept running, a spawn tried to grab Cure Happy and Ayumi pushes her away and get trapped instead. Ayumi struggled inside, but her will is strong, and she is granted Pretty Cure powers and transforms into Cure Echo. Everyone is surprised by the appreance of Cure Echo and they move forward. A big gust of dark wind confuses them and only Cure Echo is heading straight. But she got lost, however, so the mascots shine the Miracle Lights, and it leads a path for Cure Echo to find Fu-Chan. She arrives at the top and manages to convince Fu-Chan to stop. The attacks stopped immediately and Cure Echo transformed back to normal. However, Fusion is reborn and tries to devour Ayumi. Cure Happy shields her away and the rest soon follow suit.
The Smile Pretty Cure! team struggle against Fusion until Fu-chan sacrifices itself and timely bestows the Smile Pretty Cure! team an energy boost. The girls overturn the battle and Fusion is finally destroyed this time. Ayumi hears Fu-Chan telling her not to grieve for it, and it will always be by her side.
