Shinzou is defeated by Joshua, the main character's love interest. Joshua sacrifices his life to destroy Shinzou using a grenade.
Joshua seized Shinzou's arms and with all his weight, he fell backwards. So unexpected was it to the Shraekan that he had no time to formulate any counter to this. He felt himself being dragged helplessly over the edge by the dying captain.
Together they plummeted, Joshua and Shinzou. And between them was the grenade; its counter hit zero, and it exploded.
- Shinzou's defeat.
