The Rising of the Shield Hero season 3 episode 9 recap
In the last episode of The Rising of the Shield Hero, Naofumi and their crew resume their disastrous fight with the Emperor Dragon. The Dragon unleashes a massive attack that spells doom for the crew and Naofumi is able to block the first wave. Atla attempts to stop the creature with her technique but she is also hit with the blast. The blast also wrecks the cave the crew is in and water comes rushing in flushing everyone out.
The crew regroups outside after washing out from the cave. Naofumi estimates that Filo might have less than a day until the dragon drains the rest of her powers. While the crew plans their counterattack, Atla is curious about Wyndia's father and asks her about it. It is revealed that Wyndia's father lent his daughter to the dragon while he was running away from danger. Wyndia reminisces about her memories growing up with the dragon and she remembers about a specific scale that was a weak point for the creature. Wyndia rushes to inform Naofumi about the weakness of the dragon and the crew implements a plan to rescue Filo and Gaelion.
Rapthalia and Eclair are assigned as the attackers to cause damage to wear down the Dragon's defense. Ren and Sadeena are paired together to target and pierce the scale around the dragon's chest. Naofumi decided to use his Wraith Shield in order to lure out the dragon and fight once again.
The dragon arrives towards Naofumi and the crew launches their attack. Sadeena, Wyndia, and Melty use water magic to trap the dragon and to prepare for the physical attacks by the crew. The crew attempts multiple attacks in order to lower the dragon's defense but the creature is able to tank the flurry of combatants. Atla and Fohl enter the clash and Fohl is able to use his beast form to break the defense barrier and Atla is able to land a critical strike to the monster. The emperor dragon's body is immobilized and Filo and Gaelion are able to escape. Sadeena is able to retrieve the dragon core and then Raphtalia strikes the final blow with her sword. the dragon then reenters Naofumi's wraith shield.
The villagers thank Naofumi for his work, and Naofumi scolds them for trying to take advantage of Ren. Ren apologizes to Wyndia, who thanks him for saving her. Gaelion is revealed to have become the vessel for Wyndia's father as he communicates with Naofumi and the young dragon evolves into his bigger form to fly Naofumi back.
