The 165th Suggestion: The Thirteen Party (十三組の十三人, Sātein Pāti) is the one hundred and sixty-fifth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Oudo introduces the rest of the Thirteen Party's Front Six, surprising Medaka. Shiranui explains who they are to Obi and Kairai; hearing Shiranui identify the members of the Thirteen Party, Obi dismisses them as worthless small fries. Iihiko is initially unimpressed by the arrival of Oudo, but laughs out loud when he sees Oudo has brought others with him. His laughter is interrupted however by a knee to the face from Takachiho. Before Iihiko can respond, he is cut by several of Munakata's blades, who states he does not need a reason to kill him. As each Abnormal attacks Iihiko, Shiranui explains their abilities to the evermore amazed pair behind her. Naze watches on as a laughing Koga kicks Iihiko. After the others make their attacks, Yukuhashi and Oudo use their Abnormalities in tandem to fire of a massive wave of electricity at Iihiko, dropping him. After Iihiko is knocked down, Medaka begins to question Oudo, only to be cut off as Iihiko rises to his feet. Despite his jocular attitude in brushing off their assault, Iihiko is genuinely annoyed by the frontal attacks; Oudo offers an attack from the side, and Iihiko is knocked off the mountain by a stealth armored truck. With Iihiko temporarily dealt with, Medaka and her allies make their escape, carrying Zenkichi and Kumagawa on board. Smiling, Shiranui chooses to jump off however to prevent Iihiko from following. She tells Medaka that they could have been best friends, if they each had been different people. Medaka is horrified, and calls out to her as the truck leaves her behind.

After Medaka and company escape, Kairai and Obi climb back to solid ground, Kairai wondering who could have been driving the truck. Iihiko catches Shiranui as she falls, reminding her that her body is precious to him as well. Iihiko catches Shiranui as she falls, reminding her that her body is precious to him as well. He then asks for Medaka's name, expressing his belief that the two of them will cross paths once again. As Medaka demands they let her go back for Shiranui and Ajimu, Hanten reveals Ajimu is dead, which is why he has taken action. He promises to explain everything, and tells Medaka to call him Hanten'in.
