Gokū's match with the terrifying Ninja Murasaki continues. Despite the ninja's confidence in his own skills, Gokū continues to best the man, matching him blow for blow and eventually depriving him of his sword. After even his Boomerang Shuriken fails to work, the ninja flees, taking cover in a tatami house.
Armed with shuriken from their previous encounter, Gokū pursues, and throws every shuriken at the ninja. Murasaki blocks almost every one of them with ease by flipping tatami mats, but since he only stocked up on four and a half, the final shuriken impales him on the head. Angry, Murasaki declares he'll make Gokū pay.
