"Happily Never After" is the twenty-ninth episode of Mysticons and the ninth episode of the second season.

It aired on Nicktoons, at 8:00 am, on April 28th, 2018.



The Mysticons must stop Proxima from acquiring ancient starfire ink from the legendary library of the Eternal Equinox, but find themselves trapped within the librarian's ancient, mystical tome.


In the Episode

  • Gandobi is revealed to have quite a natural talent for dance music as he is an excellent D.J.
  • The Dragon Disk is recovered but soon snatched by a thoroughly vengeful and dejected Proxima as the new leader of the Spectral Hand.
  • Nova Terron is revealed to have a 300 year overdue book from the Library. Proxima is not impressed by his choice and regrets looking up to him.
  • Choko, Piper, Zarya, and Arkayna are turned into male dwarfs, with beards the same color as their hair.
  • Proxima succeeds in acquiring the ancient Starfire ink. She has her Spectromancers use it to create her own dark version of the Codex, from which she calls forth the Vexicons whom she calls "her children."

  • Piper: "I hope it has a good scary book section."
  • Zarya: "Let's just focus on stopping Proxima, okay?"
  • Princess Arkayna: "I just can't believe she stole the Mask, that she lied to us. Lied to me."
  • Emerald: "I'm sure it's the Mask. It must have corrupted her. But don't worry, we'll save her."

Character Notes
Proxima After managing to gain enough starfire ink, she has her Spectromancers use it to fully create a darker and more powerful Codex of her own. Affixing the corrupted Dragon Disk to its cover, she casts a powerful spell to call forth four, dark warriors whom she calls "her children."
Gandobi Attempts to stop Proxima, but is overpowered and has his star magic turned back on him, which turns him into a mindless,masked Spectromancer.
Quazala Tries to stop Proxima, but has her own star orbs turned back on her and is mutated into a mindless Spectromancer. She kneels down before Proxima, as her command.
Malvaron At the behest of Nova Terron, he flees the Star Chamber to inform the Mysticons of this sudden new evil to the realm.
Nova Terron Becomes a Spectromancer after saving Malvaron from Proxima. His last words to Malvaron was for him to tell the Mysticons about this sudden and more dangerous evil to the realm.

His first order is to kneel before his mistress.

Princess Arkayna Assures Proxima that she does indeed love her and always would. She expresses regret at losing her "twin sister" to the darkness; completely oblivious to the fact that Proxima had done so because she, Arkayna, had abandoned her so easily.
Zarya Fails in stopping Proxima from acquiring the ancient starfire ink. She assures a hurt Arkayna that they will do everything they can to save her.

Tazma Remains trapped in her snow-globe prison at the Stronghold.
The Vexicons (debuts; silhouettes) Four female warriors called forth from the evil pages of Proxima's very own and far more powerful Codex. She refers to them as her "children."
