As Nimaiya asks what she is doing, Mera, stating Nimaiya will not get anything done, tells them to follow her. Leading them to the Hōōden, she tells them to step inside. After they fall down, Nimaiya explains how all the girls they met are Zanpakutō.[4]

Later, when Nimaiya says it is time to begin, Mera, along with Tokie, Nonomi, Hasuka, and Tsumiko, leaps out and lands on Nimaiya, with each of them hitting him on a different part of his body.[7] After Nimaiya calls the Asauchi which Ichigo chose over to him, Mera breathes fire in front of her, creating a roaring blaze.[8]

Later, Mera looks on when Ichigo grabs the blade while Nimaiya is still forging it.[9] When the sea surrounding the forge is evaporated by the intense heat, she notes all of the water has disappeared.[10] The next day, when Yhwach, Jugram Haschwalth, and Uryū Ishida arrive at the palace, Mera senses their presence.[11]
