Tatakai is an issue of the BIOHAZARD heavenly island manga series. The name of the chapter, Tatakai (戦い?), translates as either "fight" or "battle".


The issue begins with Claire heading over to a museum (博物館) to do research. She finds a book entitled "Sonido de tortuga Island History". An excerpt brings up the presence of "demons" on the island ("かて多くの悪魔があの島に渡っている"). Claire reads on, finding that there was a US military base established on the island in the 1930s, which is now in complete ruins.[excerpt 1] Claire is interested by this base, and looks for another book to better understand it's history.[excerpt 2] She takes out another volume of the history book, covering a later period of time. The book says that in the late 1990s businessmen came to the island and bought the ruins to turn it into a laboratory.[excerpt 3] Looking at a group photograph, Claire notices a man in a wheelchair.[excerpt 4] She finds the man very familiar and takes out her smartphone to look for him. Her suspicions are confirmed when she pulls up a picture of the Umbrella co-founder Oswell E. Spencer. While he has been dead for some time, his legacy continues in the many secret laboratories scattered across the world.[excerpt 5] Claire slams the book on the table and calls Inéz, warning her she has a very bad feeling about going to that island.[excerpt 6]

Back on the island, AD Tominaga is being stalked by a chained monster alone after Mayu disappeared. Moving deeper into the jungle, he finds the trees render it unable to whip him.[excerpt 7] Tominaga gains an adrenaline rush and starts intimidating the monster even when it does manage to hit him.[excerpt 8] During this he overhears Mayu calling out to him. Leading the monster to a cliff, he tricks it into falling over, mockingly declaring "DIVE!!!" as a one-liner.[excerpt 9]
