- The Great Defender is konked unconconscious with a rifle butt, the first known concussion of his career.
- Poking the Great Defender with a narcotic-loaded hypodermic needle has the effect of reviving him back into the fight.
- The Great Defender uses a hand grenade to wipe out at least one Tokoyan soldier; his body count is now at least 5, and probably significantly higher.
- Military Transport authorities recognize The Great Defender on sight and let him borrow a speedboat with no questions asked, so he's already established a favorable reputation.
