While this happening, Zagato manages to get inside the Volcano. He then follows where Hikaru had just went in. He strips Umi and Fuu's powers, just in time for Hikaru to get back.
Hikaru and Zagato talk for a moment, and he manages to take her power as well, and he fires a fireball towards Umi and Fuu. Hikaru shields them, and he tries to fire another. This time Lafarga steps in and shields Hikaru. Zagato hits Lafarga once more, and Lafarga starts to fall do to the heat.
