Already predicted that Toriko would come, Coco went and fetch them at the train station, scaring away a Kuendon in the process.
After a meal at Coco's place, Toriko, Komatsu and Coco went to the caves where they met Tina filming regarding the Puffer Whale. However later she later ran out of the cave chasing Zongeh thinking he had caught the Puffer Whale. The three of them continue on into the dark caves, it's also when Coco revealed his superhuman vision, Coco also used his poison to scare away Scorpion Cockroach.
Reaching a deeper part of cave where they required ropes to descend a hole, Komatsu surprised Coco by clinging onto his body not fearing his poison. After they reached, Coco used Poison Dressing to stun a swarm of Swallowtail Bats flying towards them, however they discovered Komatsu went missing from their side.
