Ranga also evolves obtaining the form that Rimuru had in his imitation and gaining a second horn. While still shaken by Ranga, the goblins and lizardmen attack the surviving orcs. The oni start to obliterate the orcs. Gelmud sees the oni and realizes they are survivors from the ogre tribe which he had ordered Geld I to destroy after they turned him down.
