Clark attempts to provide CPR, but his super breath inflates and deflates Pa like a balloon until his hands and feet pop off. Then he tries chest compressions and collapses Pa's chest while sending his head flying.

** Entirely averted with the oni Yuugi Hoshiguma, the physically strongest of the entire cast, whose self-control is such that just getting her to spill a drop of the sake she holds in one hand in a wide bowl [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask while fighting]] is considered the only plausible way of winning against her.
