When that does not go according to plan, he uses his powers to instantly grant both of them great basketball powers. He momentarily changes sides when he is forced to play with Muscle Man against the duo for computer rights for life after High-Five Ghost fakes being injured, providing Muscle Man with some of his powers to continue levelling the playing field with Mordecai and Rigby. He later appears in Exit 9B as a protagonist Skips summons. He helps out to save The Park.
