Surprised by the vicious enemies the group were forced to retreat outside the Death Forest where the tree and its thralls could not follow. After leaving Hamsuke and Slimeko begins the others including Cocytus, Narberal Gamma, Aura Bella Fiora, and the protagonist managed to fell the Supreme Odor Flower. The treants became dead trees and the forest began to slowly recover.
The forest was later revisited by the forces of Nazarick led by Demiurge. Using their ogre and goblin minions under the command of Hamsuke, they searched the area for clues on the whereabouts of the true Supreme Tree, the Parent Tree. No clues were found, but using deduction they decided to head north in the direction of the north wind, as it was possible that the Supreme Odor Flower's seed may have originated there.
