During the battle, Kocaqi locks the sensation of stumbling onto Fugo, causing him to uncontrollably move out of the theater. Sheila E attempts to subdue Kocaqi, but for a brief moment the thought that she will not be able to win the fight crosses her mind, allowing Kocaqi to lock the thought in her head and cause all of her attacks to end up missing completely. Kocaqi then begins to ask Murolo questions pertaining to his involvement with La Squadra di Esecuzione during their attempt to uncover Diavolo's identity. Before he is able to harm Murolo, Fugo falls from the sky, having used Purple Haze to propel him back towards the theater. Purple Haze slams his fist into Kocaqi's head and breaks his neck instantly. His body is then consumed by the virus.
