Hideyoshi still didn't know up to this day that he had saved Ueki from disappearing.
There are five teams that made it to the final round of the tournament to find the next God. Other than Ueki's team, there is the Caption Team, Gurano Team, Marilyn Team and Barou Team. There is also Anon (disguised as Robert) and Li Ho who made it as teams of one each.
It was explained in earlier episodes that Sano can change towels into steel by holding his breath. However, in this episode, Sano showed no signs of holding his breath when changing towels into steel.
Sano does not have any dialogue in this episode.
If you listen closely during the last scene of the episode, the show's opening theme song, "Falco", plays in the background.
Ueki decides to give the Heavenly Beast the name "Tenko". Tenko is derived from the "Ten" from "Tenkaijuu", which means "Heavenly Beast", and "ko", which means "kid".
Ueki defeats Aleggio and gains another Zai, bringing his total number of Zai up to 12.
Heavenly Beasts like Tenko have ten eyes. The eyes light up and determine the rank of a Heavenly Being, with 10 being the highest. There are also sacred treasures that Heavenly Beings get when they reach a new level.
Ueki's Heavenly-Being star rank goes up from 0 to 1 during his fight with Aleggio. Ueki gains the sacred treasure known as Kurogane, which is basically a large cannon.
Later, when Ueki fights Tenko, his star rank goes up from 1 to 2, thus gaining the second sacred treasure, Fuudou. This treasure is a big shield in the form of an arm that emerges from the ground.
First appearance of Tenko the Heavenly Beast.
At first, Ueki thought that Tenko looked like a chicken.
"The power to change dirt into scythes"
Very loyal to Robert and will not stand for just anyone to join the group. He is a very short-tempered individual whom Ueki cannot help but irritate. Upon realizing his heavenly powers, Ueki puts him down for the count with Kurogane.
Ueki defeats Kamui Rosso.
Kamui Rosso a.k.a. White Shadow
"The power to change shadows into robots."
The robots have more than one form. Kind of a pain in the neck. He has little respect for anyone, adhering to the motto "I don't need any robots that won't listen to me." After knocking his fellow teammate out, Ueki takes him out of the tournament with some cunning tree manipulation.
As opposed to "Kuro Kage" which means "Black Shadow," "Shiro Kage" (Kamui's nickname) means "White Shadow."
B.J. returns in this episode.
Ueki beats Onimon.
Kageo Kuroki a.k.a Black Shadow
"The power to change his shadows into clay men"
He can create more than one clay man - even altering their appearance - which can confuse the enemy and thus keep them from finding the real Black Shadow. His favorite technique though is to create a giant clay man. If the sun disappears, so does his power. He was the captain of his school basketball team, but because of an unfair ruling during a game, he became the unemotional person who joined ranks with Robert. During his fight with Ueki, he was defeated by a fellow member of Robert's Ten. Ueki luckily got through to him (with the help of Kuroki's little brother) and even though he was knocked unconscious he will become good again.
Ueki now has 10 Zai.
The little boy that Ueki, Mori, and BJ meet turns out to be Kuro Kage's little brother.
