One year has passed since the battle of Sword Valley. In the scrapyards outside his home of Colony 9, Shulk is looking for usable parts from broken Mechon. Reyn arrives just as monsters attack them. They manage to hold their own, and they return to the colony. However, Reyn gets in trouble for being late for military drills, and is forced to collect ether fuel from the nearby ruins as punishment. He asks Shulk and Fiora to "tag along" with him. From the ruins, the three witness a large fleet of Mechon attacking Colony 9, catching both citizens and soldiers unprepared for the assault. Shulk and his friends return to try to find Dunban, who left his house to reobtain the Monado. While racing to the Weapon Development Lab, where the weapon is kept, the boys get separated from Fiora. Suddenly, Dunban, wielding the Monado once more, arrives to assist Shulk and Reyn. However, even when using his left arm this time, the Monado's power overwhelms Dunban once again, and he drops the weapon in agony. Shulk picks up the Monado, showing greater control over the weapon, and exhibits the ability to see enemies' future attacks. Dunban realizes that Shulk may be the Monado's true heir, and fights alongside him.
During the assault, they encounter a large, visaged Mechon leading the attack, called "Metal Face." While Shulk and the others become incapacitated quickly, Fiora arrives in an ether artillery tank to save them. However, Metal Face easily overpowers the tank and stabs Fiora, killing her. The Mechon then withdraw from the devastated colony, leaving behind a great number of losses and a mouring Shulk with a desire for vengeance against Metal Face. Shulk and Reyn leave Colony 9 to find the Mechon stronghold, located at Sword Valley, to avenge those who had lost their lives, while Dunban stays behind to let his injuries heal before following.
