Tokka has a very uncontrolled appetite, as shown when the duo managed to find food, but it was a trap set up by Dirk Savage, who proceeded to capture Tokka after he devours the smorgasbord, though Rahzar managed to escape.
As Savage took Tokka to his headquarters, Tokka calls out to his friend for help. At the hideout, Toka and the rest of the mutants were being controlled by A. J. Howard into completing his master plan. Luckily, he broke out of his control and he escaped. It is unknown if he reunites with Rahzar.
