In Japan, Brain poses as a sumo wrestler in an attempt to gain access to a rare fish, only available to elite sumo wrestlers, whose tail causes temporary paralysis when eaten.
Brain's World Domination Plans
- "This is the Phineas Gipponicus commonly known in Japan as Mugu. One bite of its tail renders anyone who eats it unable to move for 24 hours. ... I will capture a pair of Mugu, breed them, and market the tails throughout the world as 'Cappy Brain's Frozen Fish Sticks'. While the populace is immobilized, I shall implement my plan of world domination! ... There's only one catch ... The gipponicus is so rare that the only known specimans are those bred in captivity for the dining pleasure of Japan's elite sumo wrestlers. ... I plan to become on of Japan's most elite sumo wrestlers. ... I have modified my suit to fit the precise specifications of a champion sumo wrestler. With the adjustments I've made, I'll be able to flip a 600 pound man."
