This chapter opens with a soliloquy by the demon king. He tells the audience that he has defeated the entire demon army and that the human race cannot match their strength. The human race, he says, will not let go of their grandmaster if he is captured. The only thing humans can do is wait and hope that something happens that will save the king's life. He says that the jade pendant that the king has given to his majesty has also been handed over, so the king will definitely die if something does happen that would save the life of the king. The king of flying tigers says that everything is going well and that he is confident that they will win the battle. He is amazed at the fragments of the iron swords that are scattered around the battlefield. He wonders why the king is so poor.
