When Barney Ross decides to go in alone to save Sandra, Yin Yang goes with him. On the way to the airport, Yin Yang complains that he needs more money since he "works harder" due to his size and he admits that he has no family. A vengeful Gunner Jensen then jumps the duo and Yin Yang combats Gunner Jensen. Yin Yang gets the advantage at first but Gunner Jensen turns the tables at the last minute and attempts to impale Yin Yang on a pipe, but Barney Ross shoots Gunner Jensen. As the whole group agrees to aid them, Yin Yang defends that "(Yang) would have win" against Gunner Jensen.
