Katsuki is recognized by a group of young boys who make fun of him for the Sludge Villain incident. Katsuki angrily yells at them, forcing Best Jeanist to reprimand him. Katsuki tries to speak with them more nicely, but ends up yelling and making them cry again. This makes Best Jeanist worry Katsuki's pride will ruin his potential to be a great pro.

On the Oki Mariner ship docked by the sea, Tsuyu interns with Selkie and his sidekick Sirius. After she finishes cleaning the deck, Tsuyu has a conversation with Sirius on the reality of being a hero. It doesn't appear to be so glamorous as most students would think, but Sirius claims that she learned what was actually important about being a hero through her internship with Selkie. Tsuyu asks what it was, but Sirius says she needs to find out on her own. Then, Selkie finds them both sitting down and scolds them for not doing work. Sirius corrects him, stating that Tsuyu finished her chores and is being supervised properly. Selkie apologizes, and then one of his crew members says they've received a mission from the coast guard.
The Oki Mariner departs to investigate a trade ship that had its cargo stolen by stowaways. Selkie takes to the water himself to search for the ship while Tsuyu and Sirius search via radar during the night. Their search turns up empty, but the crew receives a message that a boat thought to belong to the stowaways is in their general area after escaping another pursuer. Selkie returns to the ship after confirming the location of the boat and they eventually happen upon it. Selkie boards the ship without Tsuyu, much to her dismay.
Onboard the fishing boat, Selkie and a couple of his crewmates are trapped inside after being fooled. Using her Quirk, Sirius hears Selkie tell her this boat was a decoy and they must pursue the real stowaways. They find another boat hiding in the shadows of a large rock and board it. They are immediately attacked by the criminal ringleader: Innsmouth.
Innsmouth wraps his tentacles around Sirius and threatens to crush her if Tsuyu doesn't tell her superiors to call off the search. Inspired by Sirius' words from earlier, Tsuyu gives away their location, angering Innsmouth. The villain attacks and Tsuyu jumps around to avoid his blows. She tries to use her tongue to secure Sirius, but Innsmouth grabs it and slams her into one of the rocks. He pins her down, but just as he prepares to finish her off, Selkie arrives to save the day. Innsmouth blinds him, but using his Quirk, he eco-locates and defeats the villain. Afterwards, Tsuyu tells Sirius she's discovered whats important about being a hero. The criminals are all arrested and the coast guard thanks Tsuyu for her involvement.
