Part in Story[]

Along with Dash, Top-rope is dispatched to capture Yin. As they enter a building, they spot Yin. Top-rope points out that there is an escape route, prompting Dash to use his ability to appear behind her while Top-rope prepares to tie her up. However, they are surprised by the appearance of Champ, who quickly defeats Top-rope.[3]

At the Nishijima Group Headquarters, Dash and a heavily bandaged Top-rope silently stand beside Abigail as she apologizes to Commander Nishijima and explains about the mechanical properties of Champ.[4] Later, Dash wakes up Top-rope late at night. Top-rope asks why he hasn't turned on the light, prompting Dash to say that he is concerned, noting that there are no security patrols even though it is time for their patrol. Noting that Dash's instincts are usually accurate, he gets up and grabs his rope. As they try to leave, they are attacked by a group of soldiers. Top-rope wonders if they are Contractors, but Dash says they are human. After seeing Dash die, he uses his ability to block the soldier's bullets with his rope, but his head is cut open from behind by one of the soldiers.[5]
