Flashy Flash uses one of his own moves Heavy Flashy Slash aiming to destroy Hellfire Flame's sword. Gale Wind expresses astonishment at Flashy Flash's technical prowess and the monsters decide to abandon the battle as ninjas and fight using brute speed and strength. The two monsters are able to pressure Flashy Flash, managing to make him cough up blood. However, once the hero became serious, he strikes both of them with a series of kicks, and then slices both of them in half with his ultimate technique Flashy Slash, ending their lives.
