    Notes (9)

    • Trials of the Hell Tower: First Trial - The Watchdog of Hell. Hiruma lets his dog, Cerberos, loose. Second Trial - Hell's Boiling Pot of Oil. The tower's Grand Observatory has several air conditioners set on hot, practically turning the room into a stove. Third Trial - The Guard of Hell. Hiruma shoots bullets filled with dehydrants at people's ice bags, melting all the ice and making the bag explode.

    • Rules of the Hell Tower: You must carry a bag of ice up to the Special Observatory of the tower before the ice melts. You can carry as much ice as you want. You pass if you have at least one ice cube left in the bag. If all of your ice melts, then you can go back to the ground level and pick up more ice.

    • Monta develops a friendly rivalry with Sena in this episode.

    • Komusubi considers himself as Kurita's apprentice.

    • In reality, Yukimitsu did not pass the Hell Tower test because all of the ice he carried melted. Hiruma secretly placed an ice cube and said that Yukimitsu passed.
