  • Chapters 81-82: In the midst of a battle against Gilthunder, Hendrickson, and the Masked Female Holy Knight, Meliodas attacks some sort of monster that was accompanying Princess Margaret completely hidden from sight. Though this forces Meliodas to take a hit and become wide open to an attack from Hendrickson, Gilthunder of all people comes to Meliodas' aid. It's then revealed that Gilthunder was actually forced to do vile deeds because Margaret had been taken hostage, his Badass Boast of being stronger than any of the Sins was actually a Survival Mantra taught by Meliodas to give Gil courage should he be in a desperate situation, and because said "Courage Charm" was taught by Meliodas, the latter was able to deduce that Gil was in such a situation right away way back when they reunited in the forest where Diane hid. Furthermore, Gil completely knew of the scheme to frame the Sins back then but was forced not to say anything. Gil also knew the true perpetrator of his father's murder and with Margaret safe, he releases all his pent-up wrath and completely obliterates Hendrickson.
