Herobrine later finds one of Mustard's Golems chasing an cow. Shadow Herobrine instantly impales the golem and cow with obsidian. He then states that he has to pick off as many as possible (Mustard's golems) before he is detected.  

Suddenly, Mustard appears from behind him and yells that he sees him. Shadow Herobrine then jumps at Mustard in an attempt to impale him with obsidian. After a bit of dialogue, two of Mustard's golems begin attacking Shadow Herobrine, but they are quickly overpowered by him. After some time, Shadow Herobrine runs off into a nearby forest in an attempt to lure and kill the golems and use their imobility to his advantage. He is at first succesful, and manages to defeat one of the golems and imobilize the other. Although, right after he imobilized the golem, the Corrupted Iron Golem appears behind him unknowingly and attacks him. 

Shadow Herobrine is then knocked back to where Mustard was. Right after, the two Golems appear behind Shadow Herobrine. Mustard then creates two more Golems and orders all of the them to attack him. Suddenly, flying swords and tools strike the two Golems standing behind Shadow Herobrine. One is defeated and the Corrupted Golem manages to escape with the use of an enderpearl. The tools manipulater then appears, reavealing himself to be Null. 

The Hunt Continues

Null then jumps down and begins attacking the Corrupted Golem while Shadow Herobrine fights one of the other Golems. Null quickly realizes that he is no match for the Corrupted Golem, and at one point is about to be punched by the Corrupted Golem, but is saved by Shadow Herobrine. Mustard, realizing that Shadow Herobrine and Null were much more powerful than he had expected, decided to do a "strategic retreat" , leaving the two golems behind to fight. Shadow Herobrine then tells Null that there are zombie squads scattered throughout the area, and to let Mustard waste his energy on them.   

They then fight the two golems separately, and eventually are able to defeat one of them. Shadown Herobrine shortly after tells the Corrupted Golem to speak, to show him his consciousness. The Corrupted Golem then in a grunting voice, tells him that he has been programmed to maintain the preservation of his master and thus, he shall not let him pass. Shadow Herobrine then asks him if he is able to disobey his programming. The Corrupted Golem then tells him his

The Corrupted Golem then looks down at his hands, thinking about what he had just said. Shadow Herobrine then tells Null that he will take care of him, and to stick to medium to long range fighting. Null replies with "understood" and jumps away. What happens right after between Shadow Herobrine and the Corrupted Golem is unknown, but both survive. Later, Shadow Herobrine finds Mustard standing by Joe the Pufferfish.

After receiving the energy, Shadow Herobrine is able to gain the upper hand over the Corrupted Golem and at one point, is able to trap him with obsidian. He then pulls out a fiery eye of ender and yells "obsidian machine gun" and then like a machine gun, obsidian poles begin shooting out at the Corrupted Golem.

He then wonders what else Mustard hid in the Corrupted Golem. Later, Shadow Herobrine requests more energy reserves.
