During the battle where the dog pack and Gozaru's monkey rebels were fighting against Shōgun, Akazaru realized that the gelada was a tyrant so he charged at Shōgun armed with wooden club. Akazaru hit Shogun's head so hard that the club broke into two, then he jumped onto the gelada's back, clinging onto his fur and bit his head which gave chance for the dogs to fight. However, Shōgun was too strong for the scarred monkey that Akazaru was thrown off and was grabbed by Shōgun who sunk his jaws into the monkey's chest slowly killing him. The dogs and the monkeys forced Shogun to let Akazaru go by biting and the latter beating him with wooden clubs. As the dogs and the monkeys chased the gelada, Gozaru and Pepe attended to Akazaru who finally breathed his last gasp.
