Lung seeks a worthy opponent; He charges his transformation. Meanwhile Japan's heroes, with help from heroes around the world, stall Leviathan while the creature tears the city around them to pieces with waves.
Once feeling strong enough, Lung engages Leviathan. Leviathan crushes Kenta several times in a row until Kenta grows too strong.
Lung seemingly fights Leviathan as an equal. Regular heroes retreat. Lung overgrows Leviathan, and even Alexandria falls back, but eventually Lungs power starts to wane.
The ground under them crumbles, surrendering to the ocean, and bored Leviathan disengages. Kenta sinks to the ocean floor.
Despite matching with, and seemingly even getting stronger than Leviathan during the later stages of their fight, Lung did not consider the confrontation as even close to a victory for him, and believes the Endbringers to be unbeatable.
