The heat of Blaze wrapped itself around Kabal's hookswords and
transformed them into fiery blades of vengeance. Crossing them above his
head, Kabal challenged Mavado atop the pyramid, seeking to end their
rivarly once and for all. In an epic hooksword battle, Mavado could not
withstand the fury of Kabal and his enhanced weapons. Never one to admit
defeat, Mavado took his own life by performing hara-kiri. Standing atop
the pyramid, Kabal raised Mavado's severed head high so all would know of
the Black Dragon clan's superiority.
