- "Who doesn't like a little trouble?"
While surfing with the Makapu'u Surfers, Makani and Holo saw a man drowning in the ocean. They rescued him and brought him to Makapu'u Beach. Their rescuee turned out to be Gorgon, a member of the Inhuman Royal Family who had been exiled onto Earth. Gorgon told Makani his story and Makani, along with the other surfers, agreed to help him in his fight against the rebellious Attilan Royal Guard.
Makani prepared to fight against the Attilan Royal Guard led by Auran. Along with Gorgon, the Makapu'u Surfers prepared an ambush in the forest of Oahu. Makani climbed into a tree and waited for their opponents to come. Once Auran and her troops arrived, Makani and the others attacked them.
During the fight, Flora used her powers to shake the tree from which Makani was shooting, forcing him to go down. As Auran instructed Mordis to join in the battle, Gorgon ordered the surfers to leave as he followed them with Lucky's body.
- Crossbow: While preparing for the battle against Auran and the Attilan Royal Guard, Makani wielded a crossbow.
- Assault Rifle: During the Ambush in Oahu, Makani fired at the Attilan Royal Guard using an assault rifle.
