Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne
- (Manga Chapters 274-387, Scramble for the Throne Episodes 1-46)
The Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne was the final story arc of the manga/anime series Kinnikuman. Left out of the first Kinnikuman anime (1983-86), the second anime "Kinnikuman: Kinniku-Sei Ōi Sōdatsuhen" (キン肉マン・キン肉星王位争奪編, Kinnikuman: Scramble for the Throne according to Toei Animation's English website) covered the entire story arc. In the story arc, Kinnikuman had to prove that he had royal blood, as a fire at the hospital where he was born could have mixed him up with five other babies.
The Five Evil Gods find five men born on the same day as Suguru, and claim that one of the five may have been confused with Suguru and accidentally switched places with him as a baby, due to a fire at the hospital. This means that Suguru may not be the true prince to Planet Kinniku, and so a tournament is announced to decide which prince is the true heir to the throne.
The six different men form six teams of five members each, as they fight to see who will win the title of prince. The final matches are between Team Phoenix and Team Suguru, and ultimately the final match is between Kinnikuman and Phoenixman, which is won by Suguru. Suguru thus reclaims his title as the prince of Planet Kinniku.
Kinniku Suguru was the only back-to-back two-time champion in Chojin Olympics history, and also defeated the Devil Chojin, the Devil Knights, and won the Universal Chojin Tag Tournament against the Perfect Chojin. Suguru had proven himself worthy to take over his father's throne.
The Five Evil Gods (the gods of Intelligence, Brutality, Technique, Flight, and Strength) fear that Kinnikuman taking the throne would be a threat to their plans. The God of Intelligence tells the others the story of Suguru's birth: Suguru was born in a hospital, but so were five other infants. There was a fire in the wing of the hospital where the six infants were being held. In a panic the six infants were mixed up, leaving the identity of the true prince unknown.
The Evil Gods take advantage of this to bring down Kinnikuman. They find the five other infants born that day and possess them, giving them 100,000,000 Chojin Power. The God of Strength takes Strongman, changing him into Kinnikuman Big Body. The God of Brutality takes Soldierman, changing him into Kinnikuman Soldier. The God of Flight takes George the Thief, changing him into Kinnikuman Mariposa. The God of Technique takes Powerfulman, changing him into Kinnikuman Zebra. The God of Intelligence takes Phoenixman, changing him into Kinnikuman Super Phoenix. Suguru's coronation is interrupted when the 5 Evil Gods present their candidates (known collectively as the Five Fated Princes).
Suguru tries to prove his heritage by showing the KIN Mark on his butt, but the other five also have KIN Marks (on their backs). Suguru leaves the coronation with Meat, and heads for a bridge; during an attempt to remove his mask, a bright light emits from his face and cleanses the polluted river below. Meat tells him that this technique is called the Face Flash and is unique to the Kinniku Clan, and thus proves that Suguru is indeed the true Kinniku Prince.
With his confidence regained, Suguru heads back to the coronation. Unsure how to settle this dispute, Suguru's parents decide to hold a Survivor Series. Each Kinnikuman will form a team of five (including themselves) and fight against one another in a tournament. Due to circumstances beyond their control, Suguru's team initially consists of himself and Meat. Kinnikuman Soldier initially has no team.
Team Kinnikuman vs. Team Mariposa
Location: Kumamoto Castle
Kinnikuman vs. The Hawkman:
The fight started out with Hawkman in the advantage, taunting Suguru with his speciality in air combat. Hawkman controlled most of the fight, with his Hell Bird's transforming ability and Hawkman's camouflaging ability, but any major hit he landed with his Spiral Bullet, Kinnikuman could withstand, even one to his chest. Eventually, Suguru was able to work past these tricks and defeated Hawkman with the Kinniku Driver.
Kinnikuman vs. Mr. VTR :
Possessing a body made of video equipment, VTR used several visual tricks against Suguru. At first, he shrunk Suguru with his Zoom Out technique, but Suguru was able to overcome this by reflecting the Zoom Out beam off of a chunk of ice. He then used his Scene Change technique to send them both to various places, ending with a volcano. Suguru was able to escape by using a Neo Kinniku Buster on VTR. In the end, Suguru won with one of the 48 Killer Techniques, Chojin Hanging.
Kinnikuman vs. Mixer Taitei:
After a short struggle, Mixer Taitei put Suguru in his Power Separator Blender. The result of this was that Suguru’s Fire of Inner Strength was stolen and sealed away by the Evil Gods. Afterwards, Suguru's soul was trapped in the chojin Graveyard, but Warsman (also in the Graveyard) suddenly arrived and sacrificed his own life force so that Suguru could escape.
Suguru returned to the arena by bursting through VTR's monitor screen. Without his Fire of Inner Strength, he was significantly weaker, he managed to get Mixer Taitei in the Kinniku Driver. However, Mr. VTR (who was barely alive) had recorded Suguru doing the Kinniku Driver on Hawkman. As he died, he took the film out of his body and spliced it so that instead Mixer Taitei was doing an Elbow Drop on Suguru. In the end it would be Suguru’s second lose since Prince Kamehame.
Before the fight, Suguru told Meat that he had removed one of Mixer Taitei’s screws, so one good shock should shatter him. The fight began with Mixer Taitei in the advantage, but despite all of the odds, Meat eventually shattered him with a Back Drop. He had chosen the Back Drop in honour of Suguru (who frequently used the technique).
100 Ton, using his size advantage, jumped up and down on the mat, sending Meat up into the air. Before he could crash into the ceiling lights he was saved by Terryman and Robin Mask. Terry was going to take Meat’s place but before he could, Mariposa and 100 Ton pointed out that Terry and Robin were not on the Team Kinnikuman roster, making them ineligible to fight. Just when all hope faded, Suguru then held the roster up to the light, revealing that he had secretly added Terry and Robin’s names with invisible ink scuppering Team Mariposa's chance of an easy victory.
The fight began with Terry at a disadvantage against the near invincible 100 Ton, but he soon found a way around it by taking advantage of his lack of speed. 100 Ton then removed some of his weights and then made a giant see-saw emerge from beneath the ring. He then used the see-saw to send Terry up to the ceiling, but Terry grabbed onto the ropes. 100 Ton added more weight and tried again, this time successfully. As Terry fell back to the see-saw, he jumped up and back down the instant 100 Ton jumped down, causing his end of the see-saw to hit 100 Ton and knock him down.
100 Ton then started transforming into different shapes such as giant balls and a barbell and attacked Terry. But Robin and Suguru realised that 100 Ton was only able to do this with direction from Mariposa and his flash cards, so Suguru stole the cards. 100 Ton tried the see-saw again, but Suguru used his Face Flash to bend Terry’s end of the see-saw, causing 100 Ton to launch Terry towards him and knock him down. Terry then told Suguru to throw all of the flash cards into the ring, causing 100 Ton to morph into a deformed combination of all of his forms. Terry then shattered 100 Ton with his Calf Branding. Unfortunately, Terry was hit by a piece of 100 Ton’s arm and knocked out making him unable to answer the referee's ten count, causing the match to end in a draw.
Robin battled Mariposa and was at first overwhelmed by Mariposa's lightness, which he used as the perfect opportunity to show off one of the Kinniku Clan’s 3 Great Techniques he had mastered, the Muscle Revenger. With Meat's help, Robin escaped his move, which angered Mariposa into bursting into flames, his Montezuma Defense. Robin manages to put out Mariposa's flames by throwing him, revealing the source of Mariposa's flame. It is revealed that years ago, Mariposa (still George the Thief) had stolen the fire creating/manipulating Anoaro Staff, a Robin Family heirloom.
Mariposa closes in on Robin and pins him into the ring with his Iron Post Binding technique. Mariposa then guilts Robin by recounting his tough childhood, where he lived in a poor home, jealous of how other children lived in far better conditions and started to steal from them so he could live. This works, as Robin soon loses the will to fight and the will to live in the face of Mariposa's tragic past. Terryman arrives at the match to support Robin by reminding him that Kinnikuman had a even more tragic upbringing, as he was abandoned on Earth as a baby with no one to rely on, with his adult life being just as bad since he was scorned as a good for nothing chojin. Robin regains his senses and reclaims the Anoaro Staff, headbutting Mariposa into the air with his new Unicorn Head. Mariposa then attempted to use the Muscle Revenger. But his version was a phoney, causing a beam to fire at him from the Kinniku Sacred Temple. Robin took advantage of the situation and defeated Mariposa with the Robin Special. Team Kinnikuman advances to the semi-finals in Himeji.
Team Super Phoenix vs. Team Big Body
Location: Aizuwakamatsu Castle
Mammothman vs. Pinchman
Pinchman started out on the offensive, relentlessly assaulting Mammothman. He was about to finish Mammothman off with his Pinch Claw attack when suddenly Mammothman went into a rage and killed Pinchman with his Powerful Nose Breaker.
Mammothman vs. Leopardon
Perhaps the shortest match in Kinnikuman history (at an estimated time of 5 seconds). The instant Leopardon stepped into the ring Mammothman impaled him with his trunk (an attack called “Nose Fencing”).
Mammothman vs. Golemman
After a very short struggle, Mammothman skewered Golemman’s head into the ring. He then began twisting Golemman’s body until his head snapped off.
In order to ensure that Super Phoenix would face Big Body, Mammothman took a dive. He and Cannonballer hit each other simultaneously, causing the match to end in a draw.
Almost immediately, Super Phoenix defeated Big Body with a complete Muscle Revenger. Team Super Phoenix advances to the semi-finals in Nagoya.
Team Kinnikuman vs. Team Zebra
Location: Himeji Castle
Because Suguru, Robin, and Terry were still injured from the fight with Team Mariposa, Meat fought before them. Though he had defeated the very powerful Mixer Taitei, he had no such luck against The Manriki. Manriki was about to throw Meat into a portal to chojin Hell, when suddenly (and with the help of Dr. Bombay) Warsman escaped through the portal and took Meat’s place.
Warsman vs. The Manriki
Warsman was able to come back to life when Dr. Bombay replaced his heart with a special crystal. Unfortunately, Warsman escaped from the Chojin Graveyard before Dr. Bombay could install his memory. As a result, Warsman couldn’t even remember how to use his Bear Claws (he tried throwing them at one point). Manriki easily dominated him for a while until Robin Mask cracked his mask open and placed a mop on his head, becoming Barracuda again.
He orders Warsman to destroy Manriki, but Warsman becomes too brutal (going as far as to break off the Manriki’s Scramble Vice). Suguru then tried to convince Warsman that he was now a Justice Chojin. Manriki takes advantage of this and holds Kinnikuman captive with a new Scramble Vice protruding from his chest. Warsman regains his memory, saves Suguru, and defeats Manriki with the Palo Special.
The Warsman vs. Motorman
Due to injuries sustained in the fight with Manriki, Warsman was unable to fight Motorman.
The Terryman vs. Motorman
Motorman dominated Terry rather easily but before he could finish him off, Team Zebra member Bikeman jumped in an interfered, revealing that he is actually Ramenman. Since he was last seen as a vegetable and the doctor who had invented his healing Mongol Mask had died, everyone wondered how he was able to walk and talk again. Ramenman then revealed that he was now wearing a headband made of the same material as the Mongol Mask to cover his head wound.
Ramenman seemed to be unable to fight Motorman as he constantly took Motorman's drill attacks straight to his head, but with enough trauma inflicted, Ramenman regained his blood-lust and within 37 seconds, Ramenman beat Motorman down and ripped him in half with a Camel Clutch.
Angry over Ramenman attacking and impersonating him, Bikeman insisted that their match be his speciality, a Thunder Dome Death Match (a spherical steel cage). Bikeman had the advantage for most of the fight, frequently shaping parts of the cage into ramps and hitting Ramenman with his Motorcycle Kick. He actually made Ramenman’s heart stop after hitting him with his Kill the Skydive technique. But a rain of tears from Ramenman’s teammates and the fans poured into the cage and brought Ramenman “back to life”. Ramenman eventually defeated Bikeman with his new technique, the Kowloon Wall Drop.
Due to injuries sustained fighting Motorman and Bikeman, Ramenman was too injured to move around much. Parthenon noticed this and tried to take advantage by hitting him with a leg drop. Fearful that the attack could be fatal for Ramenman in his current condition, Kinnikuman jumped into the ring and drop-kicked Parthenon. Unfortunately, this caused Ramenman to be disqualified for outside interference.
Kinnikuman and Robin Mask vs. Kinnikuman Zebra and Parthenon
Before the final matches for either side could begin, Nagoya Castle (site of Super Phoenix vs. Soldier) arose and flew to Himeji. The two castles then fused into one castle and the first final match took place. Zebra started out the fight playing fair (even congratulating Suguru for countering his Mephisto Punch), but soon Parthenon stepped in and used his own shadow to blacken the white areas on Zebra, changing his fighting style to brutal.
Shortly after, Suguru tried to do the Muscle Spark (one of the Kinniku Clan's 3 Great Techniques) on Parthenon but was countered, and later Zebra performed the Muscle Inferno (another one of the Kinniku Clan's 3 Great Techniques) on Suguru. Parthenon then tried to petrify Suguru and absorb him but Robin got in the way. Robin was able to break out of Parthenon by using the Methane Gas of the Anoalo Staff. He then broke Parthenon in half with the Tower Bridge and finished him off with the Robin Special.
The rest of the fight was between Suguru and Zebra. After a while of fighting, Zebra seemingly took out Suguru. He then told the story of how he “bought” his power from a God by killing his childhood friend, a zebra named Shimauma (Japanese for zebra). He then explained that he paid all of his teammates 3,000,000,000 chojin Dollars each to join him. He tried to pay Robin and Ramenman 5,000,000,000 chojin Dollars each to help him with the rest of the Survivor Match, but they refused and soon after Suguru got back up. Zebra and Suguru continued to fight and Zebra almost hit him with the Muscle Inferno again. But the spirit of Shimauma helped Suguru counter the move and defeat Zebra with an Incomplete Muscle Spark. Team Kinnikuman advances to the finals in Osaka.
Team Super Phoenix vs. Team Soldier
Location: Nagoya Castle
Satan Cross vs. The Ninja
Despite the Ninja's skill in the ninja arts and Team Soldier's support, Satan Cross overwhelmed the former Akuma Chojin with his own brand of ninjutsu. Ultimately, the Ninja was killed by Satan Cross' Triangle Dreamer move.
Satan Cross vs. Ashuraman
During this fight, Satan Cross revealed he was once Sampson Teacher, Ashuraman's trainer. After nearly dying to save Ashuraman from drowning, his legs broken, the Evil God of Intelligence offered him the Satan Cross parasite to replace his legs if the demon would become the god's minion. This affected Ashuraman's initial performance, as not only was the former Devil Knight concerned about harming his ex-teacher, but as Sampson teacher, Satan Cross knew most of Ashuraman's moves which he taught himself. Eventually, Ashuraman's desire to avenge the Ninja overcame this, and he was able to send Satan Cross into the wall with his Ashura Infinity Power. Before the two could hit the floor, Satan Cross put Ashuraman in the Triangle Dreamer, causing the match to end in a draw.
Super Phoenix, Mammothman, and Prisman vs. Soldier, Brocken Jr., and Buffaloman
Brocken proposes a 3-on-3 man tag team match. Phoenix agrees, but only on the terms that whoever knocks out the other team's captain - or removes their bandanna - wins. The ring will be on a floating cube.
As the match starts, Phoenix immediately tries to remove Soldier's bandanna. Brocken and Buffaloman try to prevent this but are stopped by Mammothman and Prisman. They then proceed to take Soldier's teammates away onto the other sides of the cube ring, revealing Phoenix's plan to lead Soldier's team into fighting single matches so Phoenix can defeat easily Soldier . An enraged Soldier throws Phoenix off the cube ring, but Phoenix is drawn back into the ring, as the ring generates gravity. Phoenix again tries to remove his bandanna but Buffaloman shakes the cube ring by slamming the canvas, letting Soldier escape.
Mammothman overpowers the Long Hornless Buffaloman and Prisman tries to melt Brocken with his deadly Rainbow Shower. Brocken forces Prisman into firing his Rainbow Shower through the cube ring, creating a path to Soldier's ring. Brocken proceeds to charge through the melted hole to stop Phoenix trying to remove Soldier's bandanna with his new move, the Black Mist of Hamburg. This incapacitates Phoenix long enough for Brocken and Soldier to leave the ring through the melted path, only for Mammothman and Prisman to separate them again by sealing it.
Brocken tries to shatter Prisman, but only reveals his real form, which Prisman responds to with incapacitating Buffaloman with a Canvas Shuriken. Prisman then reassembles and charges his Rainbow Shower to fire at Soldier, stuck in a Canadian Backbreaker by Phoenix. Brocken throws away his Skull Medal, changing him back into a human, allowing him to protect Soldier from the Rainbow Shower. While Brocken succeeds, Phoenix places soldier in a more painful Argentine Backbreaker
Kinnikuman reveals that he had Buffaloman's horns removed from his arm after the tag team tournament a year ago and returns them to him, giving Buffaloman the power to fight and free Soldier with a Hurricane Mixer. Team Soldier is back together, but Brocken feels that his human form is too weak to fight and kicks Soldier and Buffaloman off of the cube ring, leaving them hanging on the edge of the ring.
Team Super Phoenix gang up on the weakened human Brocken Jr with a deadly chojin Decoration Tree. Brocken has his Skull Badge return to him, which revives and gives him the strength to shatter Prisman with his Bremen Sunset. With Prisman out of the ring and match, Brocken falls to his death into a valley.
Soldier goes on the offensive, overwhelming both Phoenix and Mammothman, and reveals his Face Flash. Soldier then tags out with Buffaloman, who gets in a good hit on Mammothman before being overpowered by him. Buffaloman prepares to take out Mammothman with a Hurricane Mixer, but Soldier throws an iron post at Buffaloman's leg, stopping his Hurricane Mixer and saving him from Mammothman's deadly Big Tusks.
Soldier teaches Suguru about True Friendship Power, a stronger and more secure version of Friendship Power. He demonstrates this new power by helping Buffaloman overcome his fear of Mammothman's Big Tusks, culminating in Buffaloman calling upon his past to use the Chojin Cross Slam on Mammothman. Soldier later uses the Niku Curtain to block Mammothman's jabs.
Super Phoenix is informed by the Evil Gods that Soldier is not Soldierman. This leads to Soldier (revealed to be Ataru) grabbing Phoenix into the Napalm Stretch, which is the same move that defeated Soldierman. Mammothman jumps in to save Phoenix by cutting out a section of the mat, which breaks the hold.
During all this fighting, the Evil God of Brutality stole Ataru's Muscle Prophecy Page to out Ataru. He delivers it to Phoenix, but Buffaloman and Mammothman fight to retrieve the page, culminating in Buffaloman jumping off the ring and performing a Buffalo Bomb on Mammothman. Phoenix and the Evil Gods sabotage the gravity engine in the cube ring, causing it to plummet to the castle below. Buffaloman stops it from crushing the castle. He tells the remaining contestants, as he remembers another royal battle in his own Buffalo Clan which ended badly, and doesn't want the Kinniku Clan to suffer the same. He gives Ataru his gauntlets and knocks the cube ring back into place with a Hurricane Mixer, but - exhausted - he falls to his death in another cavern.
Ataru fights back with his friends' moves: The Ninja's Yin and Yang Switch Jutsu, Ashuraman's Asura Izuna Drop, Brocken's Red Rain of Berlin and finally Buffaloman's Buffalo Hammer. Phoenix tries to fight back but istemporarily blinded by The Ninja's bandanna, and his Double Arm Suplex interrupted by Ashuraman's skirt and Brocken's jacket. Mammothman then awakens and reveals he still has the page, but -as he reads it aloud - Ataru captures Phoenix in a Brainbuster and tells Mammothman to stop.
Mammothman twists the page in frustration, and Ataru's body twists in agony, which reveals a wrestler's page is linked directly to them. Phoenix orders Mammothman to burn the page, thus resulting in Ataru's body fading away from the legs upwards. Phoenix tortures Ataru with his Raging Ox attack, but Ataru summons his Hellfire Inner Strength to break free and launches Phoenix into the air to show off the missing 50% needed to complete the Incomplete Muscle Spark by performing his Ataru's Muscle Spark.
Phoenix takes great damage, but the burning page takes its toll on Ataru and allows Phoenix to set up the Muscle Revenger. Phoenix's Muscle Revenger lands and knocks out the fading away Ataru, who falls to the ground. Suguru rushes to see his brother and Ataru fades away .Team Super Phoenix advance to Osaka Castle, but the ashes of the burnt page are caught by Neptuneman.
Team Kinnikuman vs. Team Super Phoenix
Location: Osaka Castle
Before the finals at Osaka Castle, Team Kinnikuman trained in order to beat the vicious members of Team Super Phoenix. Kinninkuman was training along with Robin Mask and Terryman to perfect the Muscle Spark, Ramenman was training with Meat to counter Prisman's Rainbow Shower and Warsman was training in a bamboo forest to counter Mammothman's Big Tusks.
Their training does not go well at all, but Neptuneman secretly helps them out. He sends a note to Kinnikuman telling him to visit Yakushimaru Temple, where he discovers two towers that overlap into one in the reflection of a pond, giving him the idea to have Terry and Robin throw dolls performing the Incomplete and Ataru's Muscle Spark off the towers while Kinnikuman takes a photo of the overlapping result.
Neptuneman then helps Warsman with his training by throwing a spear alongside a training arrow, helping him to come up with a counter for Mammothman's tusks, his Warsman Smile. Finally, Neptuneman sends Ramenman a note which helps him counter his fear of being hit by the Rainbow Shower. Kinnikuman's own training comes to a close when he finally masters the Complete Muscle Spark after performing it on Terryman
The Gates of Osaka Castle
On the day of the final round, all of Team Super Phoenix and Team Kinnikuman bar Terryman (injured in training) and Warsman appear at the gates. The gates can only open when all members of each team are present. Team Super Phoenix pass without any problems, with Mammothman revealing that he assaulted Warsman, explaining his absence. With only 4 members, it looked as though Team Kinnikuman would be disqualified, but Geronimo appeared to help out, telling them of why he was here, how Warsman got injured and how he carried him to a nearby hospital.
This fight takes place as a Magic Ring Equipment Death Match (魔法陣リング装着デス・マッチ) where the ring contains parts of a mechanical suit that can deflect wrestling techniques. At first, Satan Cross knows where his pieces are thanks to Super Phoenix and gets an advantage over Kinnikuman, but with the help of his team and Ashuraman, Kinnikuman completes his suit and Samson Teacher rejects the Satan Cross Parasite after regaining his fair nature after rescuing Meat from his Miracle Sheet, causing it to change position and become a second head in order to control Samson. Meat is then disqualified for interfering.
Kinnikuman sees Satan Cross's struggle for control as the perfect chance for the Complete Muscle Spark, but he lacks the strength to finish it while performing it. The Prophecy Page ashes of Ataru come to his aid and give him the strength to complete the Muscle Spark and kill the Satan Cross half of Samson Teacher out of kindness, ending the match
Journey to the First Floor
After the Satan Cross Parasite is killed by the Complete Muscle Spark, it vomits blood on Kinnikuman's Defend Suit, staining it completely red save for one spot on the chest plate. With the match over, Phoenix and his team leave for Osaka Castle through a special passageway, while Kinnikuman's team are forced by the Evil Gods to take a more perilous journey there, through a incredibly complicated maze. When they take too long to pass through, the maze soon starts to flood, but with Ashuraman's help, they delay the flood and pass through the maze only to bump into another obstacle: The Blood Rope Binding Gate Of Osaka.
Robin Mask remembers a story behind this gate that tells at how it only allows warriors who have their armour stained with the blood of their enemies through. But remembering that his armour is indeed drenched in blood thanks to Satan Cross, Kinnikuman and his team try to pass but are denied passage, which Ashuraman explains as Kinnikuman having one clean spot on his armour that should have been stained by Samson Teacher's blood when he should have been killed.
After this revelation, the ceiling descends slowly down onto them, covered in spikes. As they try to stop the ceiling from crushing them, Kinnikuman's team try to stain the clean armour spot with their own blood, but this fails as the only blood that can stain the armour is the blood of a dying warrior. Ashuraman volunteers to sacrifice his life to stain the armour and open the gates, allowing Kinnikuman, Robin Mask, Ramenman and Geronimo to escape and arrive at Osaka Castle to a surprised Super Phoenix.
Prisman steps up to fight and destroys Ashuraman's clothes with his Rainbow Shower as an insult, enraging Kinnikuman's team, causing Ramenman to stand up to fight Prisman in a Jungle Big Gym Skyscraper Death Match (ジャングル・ビッグ・ジム摩天楼デスマッチ) where the ring is a giant jungle gym with the outside of the ring being covered in spikes. Ramenman fights well against Prisman but the constant Rainbow Showers start to take their toll on his body, so he constructs a pyramid out of the gondola from the jungle gym and by using the mysterious Pyramid Power, he draws out all of the Capillaria toxins in his body and shoots them back at Prisman as a Reverse Rainbow Shower, damaging Prisman greatly to the point of nearly knocking him out.
Phoenix sees Prisman on the verge of defeat and then tries another dirty trick by telling Prisman to go to a certain spot on the jungle gym so that Phoenix can demolish the gym and force Ramenman to fall to his death, but Ramenman avoids being impaled thanks to the 2 iron bars from his makeshift pyramid he shoved into his suit. Prisman tries to finish him off but Ramenman catches Prisman into a Kowloon Wall Drop and smashes him into the spiked ground, smashing Prisman and earning Kinnikuman's team a victory. But the battle took its toll on Ramenman and so collapses and is carried away to a hospital, leaving Kinnikuman's team at 3 members.
The match takes place on a ring surrounded by a mysterious moat, and it opens up badly with Geronimo taking Omegaman's Omega Catastrophe Drop which Geronimo only survives thanks to the Prophecy page ashes of Ataru softening the impact. The battle then moves into the moat, which is revealed to be a portal to the chojin Graveyard. Omegaman then reveals to Geronimo why he joined Super Phoenix's team.
He is on the hunt for Neptuneman, who should have been taken to the chojin Graveyard after exploding during the previous tag team tournament. But he was secretly revived by Perfect chojin who were touched by Neptuneman's sportsmanship and so the chojin Enma hired Omegaman to find Neptuneman and kill him again as chojin who are revived before being taken to the graveyard are still required to go there. Omegaman also explains that Kinnikuman's team have been targeted by the Chojin Enma for allowing Warsman to escape the graveyard. Omegaman then savagely bites Geronimo with the heads of the chojin who tried to escape the graveyard but were hunted down and killed by Omegaman.
Back on the surface, Omegaman comes out of the moat, declaring Geronimo dead by holding up a totem that Geronimo had, which Robin Mask recognises as a good luck charm Geronimo brought to the match.. But Geronimo rises from the moat on a fast growing Tam-Tam tree, which are trees that can grow fast with only water, and tries to finish off Omegaman with his Apache War Cry and his Wood Cutter Hand, chopping down all the grown trees so that they'd crush Omegaman but he withstands them and catches Geronimo in one final Omega Catastrophe Drop.
Neptuneman, disguised as The Samurai, tries to save Geronimo again with the page ashes, but knowing that it would oust Neptuneman out to Omegaman, Geronimo claimed he knew a way to get out of Omegaman's move, which was a lie. Geronimo is driven into the canvas and Team Super Phoenix earns another win, which Phoenix heartily congratulates Omegaman for.
After the match, new dangerous rules are set by Phoenix for the final bout, called the Elimination Roulette Match. Each fighter will have their Prophecy Page tied over a fire and attached to these pages are threads tied onto the ring ropes. If a fighter's thread is cut and their page burnt, they will be erased from existence, which is demonstrated by Phoenix burning Geronimo's page. Each fighter won't know what thread is connected to their page as the threads all connect to a bundle. The side who has one last person who hasn't been erased will be the winner and the proven King of Planet Kinniku. Phoenix also ups the ante by putting the right to marry Bibimba on the line as well.
