Tamaki ties up Hojo, Setsuno, and Tabe with one of his tentacles; the wrapped up tentacle is releasing a small dosage of poison, causing the three Eight Expendables to become paralyzed. Lastly, Tamaki removed their masks and begins walking away. Battered and tired, Tamaki hopes that everyone else was able to get away safely. Succumbing to his wounds, Tamaki falls to the ground and before becoming unconscious, sees a face in the distance.
Running towards their objective, Eijiro cannot help but feel worried for Tamaki, to which Izuku consents to. Seeing their worried looks, Fatgum encourages the young Heroes by saying that the mark of a true man is to have the ability to completely trust someone who has their back. Eijiro feels better while Izuku is surprised that Eijiro changed his mind so easily. Sir Nighteye spots a staircase while Shota is concerned that Mimic, who has been manipulating the underground labyrinth, hasn't made a single move against them yet. Since they have been getting through the underground labyrinth without encountering any obstacles and assumes that Mimic is unable to manipulate the entire labyrinth at once. Shota concludes that Mimic is busy dealing with the Police Force above them and Lock Rock summarizes that Mimic's Quirk's range of control is limited. Shota hypothesizes that Mimic's range of control depends on where his body is at the time, moving around the surface of the walls and then in a particular area, starts manipulating it. Mimic looks inside the room where Tamaki was battling Hojo, Setsuno and Tabe. Mimic is surprised that Tamaki was able to defeat the three Eight Expendables.
Meanwhile inside the Eight Precepts of Death's headquarters near the entrance to the underground labyrinth, Bubble Girl and Centipeder have defeated and rounded up the yakuza. One of the yakuza mentions that the Heroes should have cooperated, to which Bubble Girl replies that he is crazy for thinking that. Another yakuza mentions that they are all quite sane and if they had cooperated with the Heroes, Overhaul would have killed them in an instant. Bubble Girl remarks that they are referring to Chisaki. One of the yakuza mentions that Chisaki started using the name "Overhaul" after he fell and became like that. The yakuza state that their boss was once a noble yakuza, looking for a way for the yakuza to live in today's world and he resented the fact that the Eight Precepts of Death have been designated as a villain organization rather than yakuza. The yakuza mention that they were all devoted to the boss, but their new boss who has given himself a villain name and started taking in actual villains into their group, fear that this may be the beginning of the end. Bubble Girl assumes that Overhaul is quite hated and asks if they didn't think he'd be caught, to which the yakuza agree. The captured yakuza mention that the ones who don't think about or care about the consequences are strong.
In the underground labyrinth, Shota is attacked by a piece of manipulated wall, courtesy of Mimic. Shota deduces that Mimic is angry at him for figuring out the mechanics behind his Quirk. Mimic prepares to shove Shota into another room using the slab of manipulated wall, but Fatgum shoves Shota out of the way because the Heroes need him. Fatgum is thrown into another. As Fatgum gets up, he is surprised to see that Eijiro is with him. Eijiro tells Fatgum that he was also trying to protect Shota as well but once he did, he was swallowed by Fatgum's Quirk. As they get up, Fatgum states that they should brace themselves.
Suddenly, a large and muscular member of the Eight Expendables appear. Eijiro activates his Red Riot Unbreakable. The Eight Exppendable member known as Rappa launches rapid bullet-like punches at great speed, striking Fatgum and Eijiro with a flurry of fast and strong punches. Rappa stops and remarks that fighting with weapons such as guns and swords is boorish and believes that using such weapons isn't fighting since they can automatically win using weapons. Rappa states that a true fight is when people use their own potential and strength to win. Fatgum was able to mitigate the damages of the rapid fire punches thanks to his Quirk and asks Eijiro is he is fine. Eijiro was smashed into a wall and mitigated the impact thanks to Red Riot Unbreakable. However, Eijiro sees that his arms are bleeding and becomes shocked that Rappa's punches managed to break through Red Riot Unbreakable's defenses. Fatgum counters with a punch of his own, but is surprised that his punch strikes a barrier instead.
The Eight Expendable member who made the barrier known as Tengai notices that Fatgum and the boy that can harden his body, have Quirks that excel at defense and voices his disappointment to Rappa. Rappa strikes Fatgum with another set of rapid bullet-like punches. Fatgum was able to hold up but his body has bruises on it and is surprised Rappa could damage his own fat. Rappa isn't sure about them excelling at defense since Fatgum is barely standing, although he praises Fatgum for not turning into ground meat right away. Fatgum analyzes that the Eight Expendables standing in front of them have a bullet-like punch and barrier Quirks respectively and sees that they will be a problematic combination to deal with. Tengai remarks that they are shield and lance while Fatgum and Eijiro are shield and shield. Rappa is disappointed that they won't have a fair fight since Fatgum and Eijiro are not a good combination. Tengai notices that Eijiro can hardly be called a shield. Eijiro grimaces in pain after Rappa managed to break through Red Riot Unbreakable's defense. Eijiro is afraid that if Rappa punches him once more time, he won't be able to take it and is disappointed that he hasn't gotten stronger.
Fatgum encourages Eijiro to be unbreakable because if his spirit breaks as well, then they are done for, telling Eijiro that eliminating villains is about making them lose the will to fight and asks Eijiro what they will do if their spirits are broken before theirs. Tengai remarks that they intend to win against them while Rappa is satisfied that Fatgum understands his beliefs. Having a bit more of confidence, Eijiro decides that they are going to crush their opponents and Fatgum declares that they are going to get back to everyone else.
