Mori is determined to learn more about this tournament so when the opportunity arrives to gain such information from Mr. K, she leaps at the chance. During their talks they are interrupted by another power user. Unlike Ueki’s previous opponents, though, this one is different. Rihou prefers to use his own body to fight rather than his given ability. When Rihou starts smashing Ueki’s trees with his bare hands, not even the sarcastic talent can help our hero. Rihou unleashes his most powerful attack: The Count of Monte Cristo, which Ueki manages to stop by grabbing Rihou's shoulders, so he cannot move his arms.
