Webcomic notice The following section contains Webcomic spoilers. You have been warned, manga-only readers.

Sweet Mask joins Pig God, Child Emperor, Superalloy Darkshine, Zombieman, King, Atomic Samurai, and Puri-puri Prisoner in standing against the Monster Association. Sweet Mask effortlessly defeats Goddess Glasses, negating her charm attacks and smashing her against a wall. After, he is faced with Fuhrer Ugly and is overcome by him due to being unable to fight back as a result of his opponent's extreme ugliness, which paralyzes Sweet Mask. Eventually they are separated and Sweet Mask returns to the battlefield to fight the Dragon-Level monsters.

He throws a large boulder at Black Sperm and demonstrates abnormal physical traits over the course of the battle such as being able to withstand almost lethal attacks with ease and reattaching his arm after it was shot off. Veins and scars cover his body as a result of his powers. Sweet Mask aids Child Emperor in his plan to defeat the monsters, fending off legions of the multiplying Black Sperm whilst avoiding attacks from Evil Natural Water, which impresses Pig God and Atomic Samurai.

Later he is confronted by Garou after he destroys Golden Sperm with ease, remarking on Garou's power. Garou mocks Sweet Mask's views of justice and beauty and proceeds to fight the remaining S-Class Heroes. Though Sweet Mask and the others are able to land several blows on Garou, he is able to defeat them all, striking Sweet Mask brutally across the face.
