The Gathering Arc (集結の章) is the second arc of The Adventure of Dai. It starts with Dai and Popp's arrival in Romos and ends with the defeat of Hyunckel and his undead army.

On the VHS release, the arc was split into the departure arc (旅立ち編) and the Desperate struggle arc (死闘編). For the 2020 manga volume edition, it was merged with the Birth Arc and the Clash Arc into a Disciples of Avan saga.
