Along with the leader of the Hei Shichang gang, "Shady" Ying Xiao, Baotu fought back to back with him, eliminating several Mousha Quan members. Upon reaching the hideout, Shan-Yu identified himself as Fire Nation, and saying he was a unique bender.

Ying Xiao, was in search of the Mousha Quan's Muzhis, his job was to extort them first before returning to help Baotu defeat Shan-Yu. Going one on one against Shan-Yu, Baotu discovered that he was one of those firebenders who uses his mind to bend fire and not his limbs. He remembered the stories his father told him about the great Combustionbenders. It was a rare occasion that there was someone in this world born a combustionbender.

He learnt that a combustionbender was extremely dangerous and to take caution when fighting one. But he did not remember one of their weaknesses. After fighting Shan-Yu for a long while, out appeared Ying Xiao, and he began fighting off Shan-Yu as well. After about an hour, Qian Zei came and threw a rock at Shan-Yu's third eye, blinding his third eye.

With that Shan-Yu got angered and tried to firebend from his third eye, but in the process it exploded in front of him, and it killed him. Finally defeating the Mousha Quan the men of the two allied gangs, killed off the rest of the members, were to some had escaped. Those were left to the guards to arrest, or execute.
