When Cloud and Tifa were teleported to Ankoku Nui, Aerith traced Cloud's life force to the foreign planet, where she discovered what was happening to it. Appearing in Ankoku Nui's lifestream, Aerith meets the spirits of it's deceased former denizens, both human and Matoran, providing them comfort and solace as she makes her way to the heart of the planet. By communicating with the planet's crystal, Aerith was able to see into Ankoku Nui's past, and begins to slowly help it recover.
When Jikanmu's spirit enters the Lifestream, he encounters Aerith, offering his and the Genjuu spirits' help in restoring the crystal, and in doing so, they break Scryptorek's thrall over the planet, allowing life to flourish there again after the Makuta is killed. As the Toa Metru are being sent back to the island Mata Nui, the Toa Luminus meet up with Aerith in Ankoku Nui's Lifestream before they all go back to their own worlds.
