|— Tareo watching the battle and commenting on Garou's strength.|
Garou and Tareo find themselves in front of Overgrown Rover, and Garou and Tareo slowly back away in order to avoid a confrontation. As they are about to turn a corner, Super Mouse suddenly attacks. Garou pulls Tareo back, saving him, while Unihorn and Showerhead follow up by lunging at Garou and dousing him with hot water, beginning the battle.
The three monsters introduce themselves to Garou and prepare to fight him. Unihorn attacks first, spinning himself while declaring his horn is impossible to break, and the other two monsters attack Garou. However, the hero hunter is able to kick Unihorn into a wall, crack Showerhead's faucet, and use Whirlwind Iron Cutting Fist to cut into Super Mouse's arm. This impresses the monsters and Tareo, to the point where they acknowledge his strength.
Tareo claims that Garou is getting stronger, and he states that he's used to fighting multiple opponents, but their threat level assessments aren't accurate, and they are just fools being manipulated by nonsense. Super Mouse replies saying that they have been evaluated by Gyoro Gyoro, so their strength is without question, to which Garou responds by saying that he should possess a threat level of Dragon. Super Mouse replies again, saying that the threat level Dragon is only reserved for the Monster Association cadres.
Super Mouse, Unihorn, and Showerhead reveal that they have been stalling and proceed to attempt to punch a hole through Garou using their Triple Demon Blasting Speed Thrust. Garou easily deflects it back into the hallway, mocking the technique's power. A loud roar is heard down the hallway, prompting Garou to realize that he had deflected Unihorn into Overgrown Rover. Rover easily dispatches Unihorn and appears before them, firing an energy blast. Showerhead attempts to cancel it out with his maximum water pressure while Super Mouse puts up a guard, stating that he can revive himself with regeneration, although he is utterly obliterated by the energy blast.
As Garou runs from Overgrown Rover's energy blast while dragging Tareo from his shirt, the battle between Garou and Overgrown Rover begins.
