|“||I'm so sorry, Takumi. If I had only been by your side, I might have realized what was happening sooner. Perhaps I could have found a way to save you. I know every choice we make has consequences... I chose to follow Corrin, but did I sacrifice you to do so? Regardless, I know what I must do now. I have to make this up to you. I didn't plan on ever doing this again... But I will now use my forbidden song to weaken the curse and help free you. Once I use this power... Takumi, Ryoma... I wonder if you'll be upset at me for joining you so soon. Or maybe you'll be happy to see me too... ... ...♪||”|
Night Breaks Through (Japanese: 光去り行く黄昏 The Dusk Parts the Light) is the endgame of the Conquest campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Takumi has been corrupted beyond salvation by a force outside comprehension, and Corrin must destroy him or perish.

- The below plot corresponds to the use of a male Corrin. If you refresh this page, it is possible to get an alternate reading using a female variation instead.
Corrin awakens in what seems to be his bedroom in Castle Shirasagi, and is greeted by Mikoto and Ryoma. After regaining his bearings, Mikoto explains that Corrin's soul is on the brink of death and that he can choose to fully pass away. However, Corrin hears Takumi attacking Xander and Azura, much to his confusion. Mikoto explains that Takumi's rage will not be sated until every Nohrian is dead beneath his boot. Hearing the encouragement of his friends and allies, Corrin elects to return to the land of the living. Takumi's soul appears, reconciles with Corrin, and entrusts them with the power of the Fujin Yumi to reform the Yato and release his body from its unholy master.
Lilith's spirit appears and guides Corrin back to life, and the Shadow Yato is restored. The possessed Takumi attempts to destroy the Yato again, only to fail. Corrin proceeds to begin the final battle against the possessed Takumi alongside the Nohrian siblings.
Before the battle, Azura apologizes for not helping Takumi soon and begins to sing her forbidden song to weaken Takumi, despite knowing it will kill her, and Corrin's most vicious battle ensues. Ultimately, Nohr emerges triumphant, and Takumi is slain once and for all. As he dies, he returns to his senses and thanks Corrin before succumbing to his wounds and passing away. In the aftermath, Azura vanishes, and Corrin has a feeling that he will not see her again. He speculates with Xander as to what corrupted Takumi and Garon, but they are unable to come up with any conclusions.
Afterwards, Corrin, Hinoka (who is to become the next queen of Hoshido), and Sakura attend Xander's coronation as the next king of Nohr. He vows to maintain peace with Hoshido for the rest of his days. Xander apologizes for their losses and promises Hinoka that he will not allow evil like Iago to prosper and that he will continue to make peace with what happened in Hoshido. Though Corrin is satisfied with his success in ending the war, much of his actions are still despised by the people of Hoshido and he is still guilt-ridden by these actions.
During the party, Corrin leaves to take a breather, and has one last encounter with Azura's spirit. The next day, he meets with his Nohrian siblings and Xander states that together, the Nohrian royal family will continue to bring peace to the world.

This is the final chapter of Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and you cannot save your progress after this chapter; thus, no changes to your army or inventory can be carried over. If you have been saving rare and valuable items like stat boosters, status staves, and the Bifröst for a rainy day, it's time to take out your umbrella.
Takumi has a dangerous area-of-effect attack that triggers every 3/2 turns. You can hide behind barriers erected by the Dragon Veins to avoid it. If a unit is not straight north of one of these barriers, they will take non-lethal damage equal to half of their maximum HP.
- This chapter is one of few chapters in the game where the preparations theme doesn't play during that phase of setup. In this case, the music from the preceding cutscene continues onto the battle preparations screen.
