Punishment

The winners throw tennis balls at the losers (Joven and Ian), who are standing against a wall in a corner.

  • Lasercorn hits Jovenshire in a "Mortal Kombat-esque-style fireball shot". Lasercorn was aiming for Joven's "goofy, stupid" hair, but his him arm instead.
  • Mari will be aiming for Ian's nipples and if she hits him in the head, it is due to her "terrible" aim. She throws in a Dragon Ball Z Kamehameha-esque way, it hits Joven's right nipple instead.
  • Sohinki will also aim for Ian's nipples. He lightly tosses the tennis ball and it hits Joven on the hip.
  • Anthony will aim for Ian's "stupid" bowl haircut. Imitating the 'Hadouken' move from Street Fighter, he throws the ball, but to his and everyone else's surprise, Ian instinctively dodges it by ducking. Anthony grabs another ball and tries again while the others are debating if dodging is allowed, and Ian tries to dodge again but is hit in the back of his shoulder.
  • While Ian is on the floor, either Lasercorn or Mari throws a tennis ball at a distracted Joven's balls, who crumples to the floor.

GAME BANG!

  • Interestingly, while Anthony and Lasercorn were the only duo to win both of the rounds that they played, their overall score was lower than Mari and Sohinki, despite the latter duo only winning one round.
  • The final match is possibly one of the closest ever in Game Bang history, with Ian and Jovenshire leading for most of the preliminary games, and tying the score close to the final serve. In the end, Mari and Sohinki emerged victorious with 7-5.
  • This was the first two-player team Game Bang and was the only time that two-player teams remained unnamed.
  • While Ian was listing the teams during the introduction segment, he accidentally called Anthony "Ian". Sohinki joked that Ian wanted to "bury himself in Lasercorn every time", a reference to Team Iancorn.
