During the Phantom Troupe siege against Zazan's division in Meteor City, Small Beetle confronts Kalluto. Thinking he's a little girl, Small Beetle tries to woo Kalluto, but is rejected by him.

Small Beetle puzzled

Kalluto sprinkles confetti onto his paper fan and twice blows a squall of wind with the confetti onto Small Beetle whom shakes simply shaves it off. Small Beetle taunts Kalluto both times with his unimpressive attack, but Kalluto points out a piece of confetti is sticking out of one of his his upper joints on his left arm. Puzzled by Kalluto's observation, brushes off the piece of paper and attacks him with with his steel rope, which easily gets sliced by Kalluto's paper fan. Baffled how Kalluto managed to make short work of his steel rope. Kalluto informs Small Beetle to not underestimate his paper. He then proceeds to attack Small Beetle with his Dance of the Serpent's Bite Nen ability, tearing off the it's left arm at the same exact spot, Kalluto pointed out a shred of confetti stuck to the arm. Crying in agony, Kalluto points out another piece of confetti on Small Beetle to his upper joint on his right arm. Small Beetle notices this and begins to sweat, as Kalluto claims his right arm is next.[2]

The aftermath of fight reveals that Small Beetle was torn to shreds by Kalluto's merciless attacks. While leaving the scene, Kalluto thinks that he should fix his "bad habit" of torturing his "prey".[3]
