Alita's head looking up.


As her body falls to the ground after getting shredded by Makaku, Alita lands on her remaining hand and pushes off, throwing herself into a spin and driving her arm into Makaku's eye. Daisuke Ido happens on the scene and sees Alita's arm break off at the elbow. Makaku catches her with his remaining hand and tries to pry her head open so he can suck her brains and obtain the endorphins. Ido charges in and activates his rocket hammer, severing Makaku's arm at the shoulder. He then destroys Makaku's body, but cannot find his head. When he gets distracted by attending to Alita, Makaku in his Maggot Body appears and he fires his head spike at Ido, impaling him through the stomach.

Makaku slithers in a circle around Alita and Ido and burns their faces into his memory, vowing revenge before escaping into the sewers. Ido recognizes him as a highly wanted criminal on the bounty list. He struggles to his feet and pulls out the head spike. Despite his injury, Ido loads Alita onto his rolling case and takes her through the Scrapyard to a pay phone where he manages to call Gonzu before collapsing inside the booth, but not before vowing to give her a warrior's body.
