The episode starts with the Nitro approaching where they are. Meanwhile, Toriko and Zebra were fighting with the beast, evading its mane to get closer. Komatsu was hesitant to guide them at first, but Zebra shaped him up with his words. Komatsu then gives out his first order, to hammer all the body equally with moderate strength; Zebra expended 400,000 Kcal with his Sound Bazooka on doing so. Then, hitting the pit of its stomach, Toriko nailed a 10-Hit Punch, expending 300,000 Kcal, all while protected by Zebra’s Sound Wall. The beast was angered, and responded with an attack.
Komatsu was worried, but they told him to concentrate on the cooking. “When the ingredient gets out of hand, the chef can’t lose his cool.” Komatsu trusted them, and gave a 3rd order: to scrape some scales off its back, to which Toriko fulfilled with a Leg Knife, depleting half his stores. Next was the clockwise stimulation of the beast’s foot that was done by Zebra’s Machine Gun Voice. Following that was simultaneous feather plucking. Komatsu then explains his understanding of the Sphinx and the Cola’s correlation, and then continues his instructions, until the beast falls down, and when it does, Komatsu asks that they hit its tail’s tip as hard as possible; the final step. Finally, the beast cries out Cola tears, and just when they started rejoicing, the Nitro hit Komatsu from behind, leaving him unconscious. It then beat them both to the ground, and drank all the Cola.
While Zebra watched Komatsu on the ground, he remembered the deals he had with him: Zebra’s reward would be, Komatsu’s free cooking, for Komatsu not to act cocky again, and finally, to form a combo with Komatsu, as Zebra thinks they’re a more adapted combo than Toriko’s. Komatsu’s conditions were for Zebra not to kill beasts for no reason, and to supply him with ingredients. Zebra raged, thus recovering to his max power, all because of what the Nitro did to Komatsu and the Cola. Toriko’s Autophagy also activated, and now both of them had their power at max. Zebra blasted his Meteor Noise up the air, while Toriko aimed a 17-Hit Nail Punch at the beast.
