The chapter begins with Muichiro talking with Gyokko about what will happen if he cuts off Gyokko's head. Muichiro said his rival's looks and words are absolutely disgusting, but it becomes very serious when Muchiro insults Gyokko's pot, causing Gyokko to become extremely angry.
Afterwards, the fight begins. Gyokko uses Blood Demon Art: Ten Thousand Gliding Slime-Fish, which his aim is to make Muichiro have 10,000 gliding fish feast on his body until he will become nothing but bones.
But the Mist Hashira dodges it easily. Muichiro then uses the Mist Breathing: Sixth Form - Lunar Dispersing Mist in order to cut all the fish that Gyokko releases. But the fish have already successfully spread the poison, so Gyokko has a seldom moment to ensure that Muichiro will soon be knocked out. To Gyokko's surprise, Muichiro uses the Mist Breathing: Third Form - Scattering Mist Splash and blows out all of the poison. After Muichiro has made a cut through the demon's body, he realizes at that moment, Gyokko appears on a tree near them with a whole new form and states that Muichiro is the 3rd person to see it. But contrary to Gyokko's expectations, Muichiro doesn't react a thing to his new form, which makes Gyokko filled with rage. Gyokko then creates a hit towards Muichiro, which includes fish. Thereafter, he notices that Muichiro is already sitting on a tree. (There's a panel that shows Kozo Kanamori and Hotaru Haganezuka got blasted away). Gyokko asks Muichiro what he thinks of his speed and his godlike power, and praises himself while Muichiro stayed silent. After Gyokko has finished his monologue about his "perfect beauty", Muichiro finished with a quote: "You can be as flashy as you like, but it's all useless if you can't touch me."
