As Della takes on the monster, Huey decides to level up to become stronger to face the monster by approaching a glowing spot to strike the Beast in super power mode. Attacking the monster to save his mother, Huey continues striking it before it attempts to have another chance to attack just before it disappears. The sequence fades to Della and Huey in the real world after defeating the monster.

It briefly appears where it pops out of the television ejecting Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Webby, Lena, and Violet Sabrewing out of the television while playing Legends of Legend Quest Dereznaroth. It ferociously snarls at the children just before Scrooge uses a platter to reflect the Nightmare Beast's laser attack to intercept its attack and counter the monster, defeating it and sending it back to its own game.
