There, I helped! Are you happy now? Also, "I" am not afraid of water and I have no idea what you are talking about!
—Neptune to Sun, poorly protecting his secret weakness

"Team SSSN vs. Team NDGO" is a battle that occurred during the Vytal Festival tournament.

Preceding EventsEdit

The match was part of the Vytal Festival tournament, and would determine whether Team SSSN of Mistral's Haven Academy or Team NDGO from Vacuo's Shade Academy would move on to the following rounds.

Like all Vytal Festival matches, the venue for the fight was Amity Colosseum.

The FightEdit

The terrain for the match is half a sun-baked desert wasteland reminiscent of Vacuo's terrain, and half a tropical ocean biome centered round a large shipwreck - much to the horror of Neptune, who has a crippling fear of water.

As the match begins, Neptune scrambles to the top of the opposing team's terrain to get away from the water, to the confusion of both teams.

In the ensuing melee, Team NDGO quickly gains the advantage as Dew Gayl hurls Sage Ayana with her spear clear out of the ring by creating a huge gust of wind and dust devils. With help from Neptune, Sun Wukong manages to defeat Octavia Ember using his nunchucks rather easily, evening out the match to a 3-on-3 fight.

Scarlet David is thrown onto the mast of the shipwreck by Dew's spear and is pursued by Nebula Violette. He bests her in a sword duel, however, atop the mast of the shipwreck, throwing her into the water, before immobilizing Gwen Darcy above him using a grappling shot from his flintlock pistol before landing on the ground under her. However, after doing so, Gwen's knives fall out of their pockets and onto Scarlet. Scarlet, noticing this, panics and poses in response, his pose luckily saving him from each and every one of the knives.

Sun attempts to take out Dew by throwing a pair of coconuts from a tree at her, but she deflects the attack towards Scarlet, hitting him in the face and groin and exhausting his Aura, eliminating him from the match.

As the remaining three members of NDGO, who are still undefeated, regroup in the ocean, Sun finally convinces Neptune to gingerly approach the water's edge. Using electricity from his trident, Neptune electrifies all three opponents in one powerful strike, ending the match.


  • This fight has an alternate joke ending created by the animators in which the remaining members of NDGO float face down in the water after Neptune electrocutes them.[1]
