NumberMan rolls triple 6's on his dice just as MegaMan gets access and uses Area Steal. He then uses Wide Sword, cuts through the dice and is about to delete him, but NumberMan begs for mercy.

Higsby begs for forgiveness and realizes the error of his ways when he recalls his first rare Battle Chip. He is forgiven, but quits his job as a teacher.
