Deadpool travels to Japan where he encounters Widdle Wade and fights him off. In the past, Deadpool is also reunited with Oyakata's daughter, Sazae. Widdle Wade attacks again. Deadpool tells Sazae that he was the one who killed all of her father's old targets, thus restoring him to honor in his daughter's eyes.
