In the vastness of space, a mysterious black gas moves towards Earth, absorbing energy along the way. At that time, in Yankee Stadium, Terryman receives the Medal of Honor from President Reagan before an overwhelming crowd. Attracted by the Metropolis Power, the black gas arrives and absorbs the energy of every human and building in sight. After it absorbs the Seigi Chōjins, the gas then materializes into Akuma Shōgun (with a new character design and voice). Meanwhile, Kinnikuman has a stomach ache from eating to much gyudon and arrives late. In order to rescue Terryman and the others he fights Akuma Shōgun in a Skyscraper Death Match-- a wrestling ring mounted atop the Empire State Building, Pan Am Building, and the World Trade Center. However, after absorbing the Seigi Chōjins, Akuma Shōgun is able to use their trademark techniques and continuously attacks Kinnikuman. Just as Akuma Shōgun is about to win, the Seigi Chōjins are revived and cheer for Kinnikuman from within his body. Fueled by the support of his friends, Kinnikuman is able to defeat Akuma Shōgun with the Friendship Combination Kinniku Driver Special.
