Duel to the Death (Italian: Sfida mortale) is the ninth episode of the second season (The Tiger Roars Again) and the thirty-fifth overall episode of the animated series, Sandokan.
Yanez and Sandokan have Mati, Ushitora, and Kian Koa in their hands, but they are not willing to talk. Yanez then gets an idea: spread marmalade on the feet of the three thugs, and let the chameleon Paco lick it off. Put under such torture, the three then pledge that they will take them to where the White Rajah has hidden the cannon. Our friends are then joined by the English garrison.
Yet Nazima is aware, and casts a spell. On Ushitora’s indication (ambiguous as always) they take a path leading to a pagoda. Sandokan, Yanez and Marianne go inside the structures. Suddenly, they are assaulted by a myriad of bats; moreover, the pagoda and the cannon our friends find inside are just an illusion. Meanwhile the three bandits escape their sentinels. The mission has failed, and the White Rajah bombards the English garrison. Kammamuri will come up with the key to put the super cannon out of service and to free Jefferson. The White Rajah will then escape thanks to Nazima.
