Cardinal Pierre-Marie Gerlier of Lyon, a staunch antisemite who had supported Vichy's efforts to solve the "Jewish question" in France, opposed the rafles of Jews, arguing in a sermon that the "final solution" was taking things too far; he felt it better to convert Jews to Roman Catholicism. Archbishop Jules-Géraud Saliège of Toulouse, in a pastoral letter of 23 August 1942, declared: "You cannot do whatever you wish against these men, against these women, against these fathers and mothers. They are part of mankind. They are our brothers." Pastor Marc Boegner, president of the National Protestant Federation, denounced the rafles in a sermon in September 1942, asking Calvinists to hide Jews. A number of Catholic and Calvinist schools and organizations such as the Jesuit Pierre Chaillet's l'Amitié Chrétienne took in Jewish children and passed them off as Christian. Many Protestant families, with memories of their own persecution, had already begun to hide Jews, and after the summer of 1942, the Catholic Church, which until then had been broadly supportive of Vichy's antisemitic laws, began to condemn antisemitism, and organized efforts to hide Jews. The official story was that the Jews were being "resettled in the East", being moved to a "Jewish homeland" somewhere in Eastern Europe. As the year continued, the fact that no one knew precisely where this Jewish homeland was, together with the fact that those sent to be "resettled" were never heard from again, led more and more people to suspect that rumors of the Jews being exterminated were true.
While it seemed that Talia had betrayed Batman, she truly intended to lure the Joker aside and kill him while Batman tracked her down by using one his trackers that Talia had equipped onto her person. Batman, however, knew that Talia was the one in danger and, true to his prediction, Joker easily outsmarted and overpowered her at the Monarch Theatre, and held her hostage to ensure that Batman arrived at the Theatre for their final performance. Joker finally prepared the last steps of his plans; and set up an arena for an incredible showdown with his old friend and eternal enemy.
The most definable trait of the Joker was his malevolent and twisted sense of humour. By Gotham City's standards of criminals the Joker far exceeded this, exposing the world to a more amoral and diabolical class of anarchist and psychopath. He declared no interest in money, greed or human companionship and believed that cruelty and immorality was the true inner core of humanity and that extreme acts of inhumane violence unveiled the truth of the world which was the biggest and most meaningless joke of all. His nature was such that Batman, shortly after encountering him, noted that of all of the criminals he had encountered during his two years fighting crime, even among the most extreme, he had never encountered someone like the Joker before then. Remarkably, Joker has displayed an understanding of morals but simply found them as restrictions to his own fun and his only desire being to corrupt others down to his own level of evil to prove this belief and create a legacy for himself that would never be forgotten. In the mind of the Joker, mindless anarchy, city-wide destruction, panic and uncountable deaths on a malevolent scale was "funny', with him laughing excessively enough at the carnage that it was a trademark of his, but after encountering Batman, he has made it his goal to destroy the Dark Knight's ideals and foundations before killing him, while at the same time, cherishes their rivalry as it has made his agenda and, by extension, life all the more interesting and entertaining. In large part because of his disfigured, clown-like appearance and his obvious insanity, he generally spoke with a high-pitched, flamboyant, and silly tone that sometimes stooped down to a menacing growl.
As the fight continues, Piccolo is revealed to be holding back because of his weighted clothing. Eager to demonstrate even more of his power to Piccolo, Frieza once again transforms, unlocking more of his seemingly endless power. Piccolo attempts to hold his own, but to no avail. He now tries to outrun Frieza, but Frieza's speed is simply too much for Piccolo. Frieza then brutally attacks Piccolo with his Crazy Finger Beam. Gohan again gets angry, and fires the Full Power Masenko, which Frieza struggles with, but eventually deflects back with ease. Piccolo protects Gohan by firing a blast at it, deflecting it away. Frieza notes Gohan's growing power and realizes that he is a Saiyan, but doubts Vegeta is his father (he still believes that only Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta escaped Planet Vegeta's destruction), and finally, he unveils his true form, stressing that he intended to give his foes the "pleasure" of observing it before they died; in the anime, he promises to show them "a terror greater than hell."
Frieza and Goku's battle resumes, with Frieza moving some rocks out of the ground and launching them at Goku. However, he dodges them with ease. Frieza uses his mind to control them, however, so that they keep coming back, forcing Goku to smash them and blow them up with an energy blast instead. Frieza steps it up a notch, this time picking up a whole mountain with his telekinetic powers and throwing it at Goku, all while laughing. Instead of dodging the mountain, Goku tries to hold onto it and stop it in its tracks. Goku is eventually pushed into another mountain by it, but Goku cuts right through the mountain and evades danger. Frieza uses the surprise tactic again and appears above Goku suddenly. Frieza traps Goku in a ball he creates, rendering Goku unable to escape. Frieza smashes him around like a soccer ball but prevents him from smashing into the ground, for the ball will explode if it is touched by anything other than Frieza himself. After some more bouncing around, Frieza finally blows up the ball, sending it and Goku smashing into the ground and causing a massive explosion.
In Dragon Ball Z: The Real 4-D, his power level is greatly augmented to 5,300,000,000 in his true form. He was able to dominate base form Goku, and when he transformed into a Super Saiyan, Frieza, still in his final form easily overwhelmed Goku without a scratch, leaving him barely able to move following their Kamehameha vs. Death Ball clash. When Super Saiyan Vegeta, Piccolo, and Krillin joined the battle, he was able to easily blast them away, only to be killed when Goku created a massive Spirit Bomb.
On September 18, 2014, during the TGS demo of The Phantom Pain, Quiet was shown to be one of many "buddy" characters available to the player during the course of the game. When arriving at a location set by the player, she would contact the player via radio and hum to indicate that she arrived at the destination. The demo also unveiled more of her abilities, more specifically she also possessed superhuman speed. During the demo, Kojima commented that Quiet had a weakness that tied into the story. He also implied that the full extent of her abilities depended on her bond with the player, and that the player, depending on their actions, might never even meet her at all. This last bit, however, is not the case in the final version, as the player is required to fight her in order to advance the main story (although she appears in the prologue, this occurs before she becomes "Quiet").
Kamogawa watched Itagaki spar against Ippo in his last spar before his match against Imai in the East Japan Rookie King Tournament finals. After the spar, Kamogawa asked Ippo how Itagaki was, to which Ippo answered that he is very well prepared. Kamogawa agreed, noting how he is a talent that shouldn't be content with just the Rookie King title, and lamented that it is unfortunate that there are many strong fighters in his era. After eavesdropping on Ippo and Takamura as they talked about how Itagaki will lose unless Ippo tells Itagaki to change his strategy, Kamogawa suggested for Itagaki to join their conversation. At his office, Kamogawa and Takamura compared Itagaki and Imai's upcoming match against each other for the Rookie King title to Ippo and Miyata's match that never happened in the same tournament, which Kamogawa deemed it the "Phantom Card."
When Itagaki's match against Imai in the East Japan Rookie King Tournament arrived, Kamogawa went to the Kōrakuen Hall to be one of Itagaki's seconds for the match. During the second round as Shinoda was frightened when Itagaki got hit for the first time, Kamogawa mentioned that it changes noting, as when Itagaki decided to go forward against the in-fighter, he took away the momentum and went forward to the path of victory with courage. During the fourth round when Itagaki blocked a hook but still had damage to his legs, Kamogawa explained to Shinoda how Imai is using his true strength now that he is not getting irritated by Itagaki's close range attacks, and is putting his whole weight into his punches. The match lasted to the end of the final sixth round, where Itagaki won by decision, becoming the Rookie King of the east. Afterwards, Kamogawa went to the locker room as Itagaki was taken away to the hospital.
