Taiju Vs. Tsukasa (大樹VS (バーサス) Taiju Bāsasu Tsukasa) is the sixth chapter of the manga Dr. Stone.


Taiju and Yuzuriha decide to face Tsukasa with conviction. While Taiju addresses his murders, he is interrupted by the murderer himself: "You can call it killing, if you want. It's simply a matter of perception." Senku notices that he has no intention of hiding his murders.

Out of anger that Tsukasa let pieces of stone fall from his hand as a sign that he had committed more murders along the way, Taiju suddenly charges unarmed into an open battle against Tsukasa and Senku has no other choice than to use his hidden trump card, a crossbow. But to his loss even this has no effect on the "strongest primate high-schooler" as he is able to strike an unbelievable kick on his best friend! Surprised that Taiju is still alive, he notes that Taiju had no intention of really attacking him: "Why?" Taiju reasons that he won't hit people, no matter how much they punch or kick him, he won't care. In exchange, he wants Tsukasa to stop breaking statues since "killing is bad". Tsukasa sees no exchange whatsoever and indirectly threatens him: "And what about the girl who was just revived? If I said 'I'll kill Yuzuriha'?" In shock, Taiju presents himself as a human shield before Yuzuriha, but faints seconds after that. "He's bleeding a lot. He'll have to sleep for a few days, then", Senku says. Annoyed, Tsukasa suggests to stop the quarrel among them and leaves.

"There's only one thing that can stop Tsukasa. The greatest ... human invention. A gun, in other words ... we're making gunpowder!"

Senku is back in the game.
