In episode 4, the protagonist fearfully watches as the Earth Dragon Araba passes by her. She later discovers that she is in the Great Elroe Labyrinth Lower Stratum and begins to make her way to the dungeon’s upper layer, as it is relatively safer for her. Feeling famished, she tries to eat slimy insects called elroe gastruch, but the taste makes her vomit. She later satiates her hunger by eating three reptile monsters called elroe randanel.

As she tries to continue on her way, she runs into a group of anogratch, monsters that distinctively look like monkeys. When one of them attacks the protagonist, it gets trapped in her web. As the protagonist bites into the creature, the anogratch lets out a dying scream. She is soon assaulted from all sides by the group and three bagragratch, an evolved version of the anogratch. Rapidly ascending through three levels, she manages to kill or capture all of them.

As she departs from that level of the dungeon, she suddenly finds herself falling into a river of lava. In episode 5, the protagonist might find a way to survive the lava and the monsters live in it.
