The Soldier manage to place bombs in the base's fuel tanks before going to his match. Both the Germans and Japaneses intend on making sure their respective champion win by any means necessary. In the middle of the match Nikomo is drugged. But the Japanese referee attempt to discreetly assassinate the Soldier. Fortunately, the Soldier's bombs goes off and catching everyone off guard. This distraction also cause the referee to be fatally shot by Nikomo's translator, Ishima, who reveals to be a Japanese-American spy. Together, the Soldier and Ishima flees the island on a stolen plane.
