Following the defeat of Albert Dying and the Guild, Agnese Sanctis, Lucia and Angelene were dispatched to Piccadilly Circus as part of an operation to deal with a magician, who was responsible for people getting sucked into a boxy ashtray left on the side of the road on looking inside and going missing (apparently copying stories of this type to feed a collection obsession). Since the magician had previously escaped due to being sensitive to the faint magic of a people-clearing field, the Anglicans were attempting the effect of a people-clearing field through physical means instead, keeping ordinary people away by feigning drainage problems.[8]

Following the emergence of the reproduced Golden Dawn and the escape from Westminster Abbey, Aleister Crowley, Kamijou Touma, Othinus and Accelerator went to Piccadilly Circus to gather resources in order to fend off their pursuers.[2][3] Using hardware materials from the Naked Shopping Center within it, Aleister constructed the Super Sonic Striker which she briefly used to fend off Dion Fortune.[4][5] Shortly after Arthur Edward Waite and John William Brodie-Innes entered to prevent Aleister's escape, the building was subjected to a bombing from the Lady of the Masquerade Ball's Taphthartharath, reducing much of it to rubble and causing considerable damage to the rest of Piccadilly Circus.[6][7] Aleister and Touma's group survived and managed to escape towards the Isis-Urania Temple while their pursuers were searching the rubble for them.[7]

A short time later, Hamazura Shiage's group passed through Piccadilly Circus and picked up the injured Dion Fortune.[9] Misaka Tabigake was nearby at the time and missed his chance for a lift.[10]
