A short time later, along with her friends, she went to check Maya Sakashiro, since Maya's clothes were torn by Nozomi Kaminashi. Kurogiri mentioned that the ribbon girl would clash with Maya. On the day of the race, Kurogiri got her turn in the second group.
After the end of the first match, she was gathered along with Mai Itoeda, Kei Higuchi, and Sanae Hououin. Their coach told them that they lost the first match because Setouchi's representatives from the first group were indeed talented, but they could see what kind of people they would face off.

However, when Sanae tried to attack Kazane for the second time, Non ambushed her. Sanae noticed that they managed to corner Kurogiri, as Kurogiri's "Fairy Butt" returned to its original shape. Sanae then decided to assist Kurogiri, defeating Usagi. But soon, Kurogiri was defeated by Non and Kazane, leaving Sanae as the last Suruga's player. However, thanks to Sanae, Suruga managed to win the second match. She was later seen felt relieved.

Autosuggestion (自己暗示, Jiko Anji): Kurogiri uses the "Autosuggestion" in order to empower herself.
Fairy Butt (精霊尻, Seirei Ketsu): By using "Autosuggestion", Kurogiri firmly believes that the fairies bestow light and power to her butt. Before activating it, she casts a spell. As such, she is able to draw out more strength effectively than usual. In order to active it, Kurogiri must say the incantation, "Oh, Fairies of our wonderful world. Give me power and light to my butt! Ah! Mammel, Mammel, Papanski, Night wind, Night wind, blow in me. Give me hip." (清廉潔白にしてこの世界の元素たる精霊たちよ。光と力を我が尻に！ アー、マンメル マンメル パパンスキー ヨカゼヨカゼ ツッコンデー パワーギブミーヒップ, Seireikepaku ni shite kono sekai no gensotaru seirei-tachi yo. Hikari to chikara o waga shiri ni! Ā, manmeru manmeru papansukī yokazeyokaze tsukkondē gibu mī hippu). Upon activating it, her butt is surrounded by small, fairy-like creatures with green aura. However, it's a temporary empowerment and has a time limit. Kurogiri is exhausted when she reaches the time limit.
