After exploring the town on his pony-like yokai, Aeternus decides to play a game of catch with his wolf-like yokai by the water. After throwing his prayer beads into the water for his yokai to fetch, he hears a yelp as the supernatural canine is dragged under water. He heads to the waters edge to investigate and his a strange faux-Dark Knight Batman voice ask him “Why are you here?”
After listening tell him to leave the port and stop the damage that repairing the plane in the ocean is causing to the environment, Aeternus decides to retreat though a portal to his yokai ranch in Turkey. However, a crocodile-man rushes out of the water and jumps through the portal after him. On the other side, Aeternus asks the creature who he is and gets a paraphrased Darkwing Duck references in response: “I am the terror that hides in the night, I am the chill that runs up your spine…” Unable to make sense of the statement, Aeternus assumes his attacker is a yokai and gets excited about the possibility of catching another for his ranch but his shinma guide chastises him for his lack of knowledge. Aloud he says, “If you were important, I would have know about what kind of thing you are.” Which earns another remark from his yokai about how the attackers race is kind of important.
Interrupting Aeternus’ inner monologue, the crocodile-man claws Aeternus and forces painful alien memories of the Kadru ancestors into the Tennin mind. Throughout the rest of the fight, the crocodile-man makes various geek culture references while fight, such as commenting that the battle is like a danmaku game or complaining that Aeternus’ was “turtling,” which prompts Aeternus to call him a nerd even while sent flying from a strike. However, Aeternus eventually looses the fight as he is unable to find a way to deal with his attacker’s nearly all-strike style. The lasting the Tennin hears before passing out is his opponent wondering aloud, “Where the hell am I?”
Latter, Aeternus wakes up and finds the creature, who introduces himself as Neil, complements the Tennin on all his cool “pokémon-things” while playing with Gamaderp, Gamabunta, Gwee, Pixie, and Shadow.
