Totta puts on weight by eating several cups of instant ramen noodles to catch the ramen Bar Soul Zulu Zulu.

He then learns that the bar code of a much more powerful variation of Zulu Zulu is in a certain ramen shop. However, the shop’s specialty ramen containing the bar code at the bottom of the bowl proves to be too spicy for Totta to eat, so he builds up a tolerance for it by gradually eating several increasingly spicy instant ramen noddles.

After finishing the specialty ramen and scanning the bar code, Totta summons the fiery Bar Soul Hot Zulu Zulu, but has difficulty reeling it in until he consumes more of the shop’s food to bulk up even further to help stand his ground with the extra weight. Using both his girth and ability to roll around, Totta manages to successfully capture Hot Zulu Zulu and then loses all his extra weight after needing to use the restroom.
