Ippon-Datara also appears as an opponent in the Challenge Quest, "Training Battle 1." In this battle, he will alternate between using the Heat Wave and Maragi skills.

Ippon-Datara will always use Heat Wave on the first battle turn. Additionally, Flynn's gun is equipped with poison rounds, which can inflict additional damage on Ippon-Datara is he becomes afflicted with Poison status.
