Prior to Issue 21, Breakout was the Villain tutorial zone. It was replaced by a new co-op tutorial experience, although the zone itself was not removed from the game. Consequently, any characters that were in Breakout upon the release of Issue 21 were able to complete the old tutorial and exit to Mercy Island.

Sakai Tamaki is a villain contact in Breakout at coordinates (-2,506, -13, 23).


Contact Introduced By

New Contact(s)

You've made it this far, so it's time to leave. Go to the Arachnos Pilot at the far end of the Yard. He has a Flyer waiting for your exit.

Make your way to the end of the Yard. The Arachnos Pilot and his Flyer are waiting for you there.


The Tsoo's Inside Man

The Tsoo have their hands in most everything that goes on in Paragon City. Tub Ci, the leader of the Tsoo, even likes to control the prison population (as much as you can control a psychotic bunch of ex-super powered criminals). His inside man is Sakai Tamaki. Tamaki uses his ninja training to slip out of, and back into, the Ziggurat, giving Tub Ci the latest gossip and making sure that Tub Ci's orders are followed through on the inside. Tamaki's current orders from Tub Ci are to see that the people Arachnos has selected make it out of the Ziggurat alive.

Prior to Introduction

None. Players can get Sakai directly and bypass any previous contacts in the tutorial.


Lord Recluse, the most glorious leader of Arachnos, thinks that you may be a predestined soul. His Fortunata, Kalinda, has seen that you may well be one of those who can lead Arachnos to eventual victory over the heroes of Paragon City. We'll see about that. From what I hear, you still have a lot to learn, and even Kalinda isn't sure exactly who her prophecy pertains to. She just knows they're here in the Zig. I've been instructed to issue you a test of your combat abilities. If you pass, then you will be escorted to Mercy Island. Then Kalinda can test you for herself.

Click on ask about available missions to proceed.

No More Missions

You've passed Lord Recluse's test. The flyer is waiting for you, go see the Arachnos Pilot before he gets impatient and leaves.

Defeat Thugs/Guards


I must see your combat prowess for myself. I take it Caze explained how to use your powers, so let us put that knowledge to practical use. Go east from here, out into the Yard. Once there, defeat any two people. Prisoners, guards, I do not care. When you have defeated two, return to me.

If you are a Mastermind Archetype and have Summoning powers, you should read the manual, or the in-game Help File, for more information on how to control your pets in battle.

Mission Acceptance

Defeat two people, I care not which ones, then return to me. You must leap over the fence in order to get into the Yard.

To leap over the fence, use your Spacebar to jump while moving forward.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You are a fool and a coward. You need to prove yourself to me. Hop over the fence using your Spacebar and defeat two escaped prisoners or guards!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Thugs/Guards
    • Defeat 2 Zig Combatants

Take this time to look at your Experience Bar.

UI Experience Bar.jpg

This fills up as you complete tasks and defeat foes. Once you fill up the Experience Bar, one of the small bars in the Information Circle will fill. Once all 10 bars are filled, you will increase your Combat Level. Then you can train at an Arbiter to increase your Threat level.

I hear there are those within Arachnos who think you have a bright destiny. But today, today you are but a gnat on the hind end of a mule. In order to truly succeed you will need to learn to use Inspirations in battle. You can use these Inspirations to temporarily increase your combat potential by raising your damage, accuracy or defense. Some Inspirations can be used to heal yourself or give you back some of your Endurance. To use an Inspiration, click on the icon in your Inspiration Tray:

Armed with this knowledge, and some powerful Inspirations, go out and defeat 2 more people in the Yard.

You can also detach windows by clicking the button in the upper or lower left hand corner of the window, This will let you move them around your interface to customize it to your liking.

You received Righteous Rage.
You received Resurgence.

Note: You do not have to use the inspirations that Sakai Tamaki gives to you! If you prefer, you may save them to use during missions later.

Defeat Thugs/Guards

Unnecessary Solicitation

Use the Inspirations, or not, I do not care. Just defeat two more of these petty prisoners or guards.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Thugs/Guards
    • Defeat 2 Zig Combatants

Return to Sakai Tamaki


I see... perhaps Lord Recluse was correct. Perhaps you are indeed one of the special people Arachnos seeks. You seem to have grasped everything I have thrown at you.

But be warned, Character. You will have to impress those within Arachnos as well. And most of them are quite willing to stab one another in the back, so don't ever let your guard down. You'll have to prove your worth. In Arachnos, it's survival of the fittest.

I bet you want to start your new life now, so let's get you on the right path. You should seek out the Arachnos Pilot. He will spirit you away from here.
