* PummelingTheCorpse: The previously violence-averse Tyree snaps when he sees his wife stabbed to death. In the ensuing climactic battle, Tyree rushes and quickly overpowers the man who stabbed his wife, and staves in his head with a large rock. Tyree's mind, clouded with berserker fury, does not register that his opponent is dead, so he spends the rest of the battle bashing the corpse's shattered head. Even after the battle ends, Tyree continues to bash the unresisting corpse until Kirk stops him.

He even references the brush wars of the 20th century as he does so.

While Spock convalesces, Kirk and Bones beam back down to investigate this on going war. It seems those darn Klingons are at it again! They convinced one faction of natives that they could be more powerful than the others. All they needed was better weapons. As if dealing with them wasn't bad enough, there are these critters called the mugatu to contend with. Kirk gets poisoned by one. Fortunately, Bones is able to get him to Tyree's tribe, where his wife Nona (Nancy Kovack) is able to heal Kirk.

** Early in the episode, Kirk identifies Mugatu tracks. Not long after, he gets attacked by a Mugatu.
** This leads to another one--after [=McCoy=] kills the mugatu, Tyree tells him its mate will be nearby. Guess what shows up near the end.

* OurMonstersAreWeird: The mugatu looks like a cross between Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and Snowflake the Albino Gorilla. Oh, and it has a poisonous bite.
