Assassin Jackal (暗殺者ジャッカル Ansatsusha Jakkaru) is the forty-third episode of Battle Fever J.


Egos hires an assassin to kill Battle Fever, unaware of his long history with his former friend Shirou.


Egos hires an assassin, codenamed Jackal. Shirou decides to brush up on his marksmanship, just in case. While at the shooting range, he runs into Tsuyoshi Takeuchi, his old friend from Africa, with whom Shirou had worked on wildlife preservation. Little does Shirou know that Tsuyoshi is Jackal. Battle Fever receives a message that Egos is planning to bomb the World Peace Center, which is a trap to give Jackal an opportunity to shoot Battle Fever.

However, when he shoots Battle Kenya, the battle suit protects Shirou, and the bullet ricochets and hits an innocent little girl, Megumi. As they are visiting her in the hospital, Jackal tries again, but discovers that Battle Kenya is his old friend Shirou. In his hesitation, the others catch him, and Shirou is shocked by disbelief. Egos intervenes, and Tsuyoshi escapes. Shirou is devastated, and recalls Tsuyoshi’s compassion, when he held a dying lion cub in his arms for 3 days and nights, nursing it back to health.

However, Jackal trying to retain his reputation, kidnaps Megumi and issues a challenge to Shirou. Although he knows Tsuyoshi is a much better shot, Shirou rushes to duel his old friend. In their confrontation, Shirou cannot bring himself to shoot his Tsuyoshi and drops his gun. As he walks towards Megumi, Tsuyoshi shoots, but only hits Shiro’s shoulder.

Egos then attacks the scene, and Tsuyoshi is killed in the explosions. Shirou is left to mourn his old friend, and believe that there must have been some compassion left in his heart in order for him to miss.
