During their school trip, Katsuki and Shoto encountered a villain in the forest. Katsuki asked Shoto who was supposed to be ahead of them, to which Shoto answered Fumikage Tokoyami and Mezo Shoji. Meanwhile, Moonfish was admiring a severed arm on the ground. However, he realized he had work to do and could not afford to be distracted, finally turning his attention to Katsuki and Shoto.
Shoto engaged in combat with the restrained villain, using his ice to block the villain's teeth enlarging Quirk. However, Moonfish proved to be highly skilled, being able to break through the ice and nearly hit Katsuki with one of his teeth, only to be intercepted by his ally's ice. Much to Katsuki's annoyance, Shoto warned him not to use his Explosions due to the fear of igniting the poisonous gas and causing more chaos.
Meanwhile, Moonfish continued breaking through Shoto's ice defenses with his teeth while also using his teeth to maneuver himself around. The heroes-in-training continue their battle with Moonfish; though Shoto was unable to fight properly due to carrying Kosei Tsuburaba, trying his best to keep Moonfish at bay by blocking his path with ice. Katsuki becomes furious that he is unable to fight back as he thought that firing a huge explosion should stop Moonfish, but Shoto warned him that the explosion will limit their visibility and give the villain more attacking opportunities.
Moonfish then hears the sounds of Izuku Midoriya and Mezo crashing through the forest, with an out of control Fumikage chasing after them. Distracted from his initial targets, Moonfish sends one of his tooth blades at the new arrivals.
Suddenly, the rampaging Dark Shadow appeared and used its enormous claw to crush Moonfish, destroying Moonfish's teeth, much to Shoto and Katsuki's surprise. After the rampaging Dark Shadow effortlessly defeated Moonfish, Katsuki and Shoto managed to get close to Fumikage, and use their Quirks in a combined attack of explosion and flame to tame Dark Shadow.
After Katsuki once again told Fumikage that their Quirks have a bad chemistry, Fumikage thanked Katsuki and Shoto for saving him. Izuku told Fumikage that their top priority was to protect Katsuki, who was the target of the villains'.
