At the fight at Modori Bridge, Tsuna was nearly carried off by the demon Ibaraki. He escaped by cutting off her arm, which he kept in a locked chest, guarded at all times in case she came back for it. Here, the demon appears as a frail old woman (identified as Tsuna's mother) and eventually gets Tsuna to show her the severed arm, which she promptly seizes and escapes down the hanamichi.
