Madoraco appeared before the Workshop moderators telling them they could earn a lot of money to complete their research by using a betting system in the Workshop Battle and not to worry about if the director found out, as he would take care of everything. He Then told his subordinates that soon Jyu Viole Grace would be in their hands.

His silhouette was later seen among the Slayers and Elders in FUG who opposed the young Slayer candidate in being granted Enryu's Thorn.


Madoraco watched on and mused about how Viole's friends were attempting to escape during the Workshop Battle and thought about making a move even if there would be some collateral damage. Suddenly one of Madoraco's subordinates entered his room to tell him that a messenger from the Tournament area had arrived causing the Grey Catfish to question who the messenger was. He and the messenger, later revealed to be Beniamino Cassano, make a trade and later Madoraco conversed with his attendant, saying that the information they received from Reflejo via Cassano was more useful than holding the deal with the Workshop Researchers. He then ordered them to prepare the solution as they were going to strike Viole and his allies before they could escape. He finished by saying it was time to end the tournament.

Shortly after Viole defeated Reflejo, Madoraco sent one of his Rankers to the Archimedes' tail to drop the dissolving solution to create their ultimate weapon. Seeing the solution being dropped, Punk and Io confronted Madoraco with the latter revealing that he had given their promised reward to someone else, since he had received a better offer. The two Workshop moderators were riled and drew their weapons but Madoraco easily defeated them.

Soon after, a figure appeared and greeted Madoraco, greatly unnerving him. This figure turns out to be Po Bidau Gustang, one of the leaders of the ten families. After conversing about Gustang's involvement in the current affairs, Madoraco told all his FUG associates to withdraw and meet back at their headquarters before Gustang destroyed them all.
