Of course, Hikari's actually Shana, so she's the only one ''not'' affected by the endless running. When an anemic Kazumi grows faint, Kondo turns his ire on her, at which point a fed-up Shana kicks him. The teacher then proceeds to piss off Shana further, to the point that she moves to punch him. Yuji, recognizing that Shana won't get away with hitting a teacher but that she won't listen to an order to stop, instructs her to ''kick'' Kondo. She does so and Yuji very ''loudly'' warns Kondo it's dangerous to stand in the middle of the track while people are running. The rest of the class quickly picks up what Yuji is doing and chime in that Shana was going to fast stop and couldn't help "running him over." Yuji then ''encourages Shana to threaten Kondo'', and follows up by telling him, "If you aren't careful, Sir, it could be dangerous for you."

[[TheExtremistWasRight They actually actually]] ''[[TheBadGuyWins win]]'', [[TheExtremistWasRight but [[WinWinEnding the Denizens graciously accede to a compromise with the Flame Hazes to prevent any possibility of them eating humans' Power of Existence and threatening the world]]]].

Thankfully, this happens within a [[PhantomZone Seal]], so [[ResetButton it doesn't take]]. It still shakes Eita enough that he attempts a ScrewThisImOuttaHere and only reluctantly gets involved once more after the Snake of the Festival first comes to Misaki City.
