The three try to put up a fight but Kevdak captures the three, which terrorizes Grog.

Kevdak then pushes Grog onto a palisade and leaves him stuck there. He then approaches Pike and as he is about to crush her head, Grog hears the voice of the Groon, who asks him about his source of strength. At the same time, Pike pleads with him to help her. Seeing her, Grog finally realizes the source of his strength and gains back his muscles, and increases in size, subsequently, attacking Kevdak.

The fight starts again and Grog is seen to have the upper hand until Kevdak claps his gauntlets together to double his size. Taking the advantage of his size, Kevdak mercilessly thrashes Grog. When Kevdak is about to hit the final blow, Grog sees Vax and his other friends coming in. Grog gives them a sign to attack. As a result, another phase of the fight breaks out with each member using their abilities to fight against Kevdak. In the background, strong metallic music is played by Scanlan as encouragement. In between the battle, Zanror, Kevdak’s son, is seen to be fighting his father too. Still, at a disadvantage, Vex gets an idea and releases Trinkets and locks Grog inside the amulet from Zahra, before releasing it on top of Kevdak. Grog then breaks out of the amulet, strikes Kevdak, acquires the gauntlets from his hands, and cuts Kevdak to his waist.
