Surprise Attack (不意打ち, Fuiuchi) is the 156th chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
The cover page shows a close-up of the Dinosaur Boss Alien's face with closed eyes and huge vicious looking opened mouth with razor sharp teeth. To the left of it, Kei Kurono is running in his regular clothes and a worried looking Tae Kojima is holding her bag to the right.
The chapter begins with Kei Kurono trying to sneak up on the Dinosaur Boss Alien, surmising that it will have the same weakness as the other Brachiosaurus Aliens and that he must stay out of sight in order to kill it. Meanwhile, in an elevator in the Government Building, Tae Kojima is holding the Unknown Baby as well as Kurono's Gantz Suit, having seen it before in his house, and nuzzles it while stating that she wants to see Kurono again.
Kurono continues to sneak up on the alien until it opens its eyes and begins to swing its head wildly, in its usual attack pattern. Kurono is initially panicked until he sees that the alien isn't actually attacking him, instead swinging its head behind its body.
It is then revealed that the alien is fighting Shion Izumi while the latter wields his Gantz Sword, parrying the aliens attacks and thinking that he should be better than Kurono, not inferior. Shion is able to cut off the aliens head in a single swing, causing Yoshikazu Suzuki to celebrate until Shion realises that it is still alive, the alien bringing its massive neck down onto the ground and sending Shion flying while breaking his arm. Yoshikazu quickly loses hope until he sees Kurono standing beneath the alien with his X-Gun pointed upwards, at which point the chapter ends.
