In his rematch with Baki, its eye was gouged out only to be eaten by himself afterwards. In the end Baki won his fight with him showing Baki a sign of respect. It was revealed that Yujiro killed the Yasha Ape's wife. In return, Baki returned the skull of his wife as a sign of respect. Likewise, he gave Baki one of his fangs as a gift.
