Uvogin eventually locates Kurapika, and the two travel to a deserted wasteland, where tensions rise. After removing the leeches from his body, Uvogin inquires about his opponent, sensing that he isn’t a typical Nen user. Before responding, Kurapika inquires if Uvogin and the Phantom Troupe remember the people they’ve killed.

He responds that he can only recall particular people who left an impression on him and that Kurapika now seeks vengeance. Uvogin can’t recall anything about the Kurta Clan, which the troupe murdered five years ago, and their Scarlet eyes, but admits that he was a member of the Troupe five years ago. He hints that killing people makes him feel nothing, prompting Kurapika to label him slime and declare that Uvogin will atone through his death. Uvogin charges up and responds that it is because of individuals like him that he never gets tired of killing.

Uvogin refuses to answer his questions concerning the Troupe’s location and skills, so he asks Kurapika to kill him instead. Kurapika continues to pummel Uvogin till his senses are thrown into confusion and he wonders why Uvogin is unaffected when killing the innocent. Kurapika snaps as Uvogin repeats the same response.

He employs his Judgment Chain to encircle Uvogin’s heart. The Judgment Chain is explained by Kurapika: if Uvogin defies the laws he sets, the knife will activate and puncture Uvogin’s heart. The law of Kurapika is that Uvogin must answer all of his questions. Kurapika then asks him where the Troupe is hiding again. Uvogin smiles and urges Kurapika to die instead of responding. Uvogin’s heart is crushed by the Judgment Chain. Kurapika calls Melody after the fight and buries Uvogin’s body in the earth.
