Cryptid vs. Cryptid was the thirteenth episode of Season 1 of The Secret Saturdays. It is the thirteenth episode overall. It premiered on April 24, 2009.



After a man pays for some damages that Fisk caused, the Saturdays look at his card to find that Leonidas Van Rook is hosting cryptid fights which people are illegally gambling on. So the Saturdays investigate by putting Fisk in the fights with Doyle as his manager. But could Van Rook be the only person behind the fights? Things go easy for the Saturdays, bringing down the cryptid fights until the Rakshasha appears. Zak soon gets a power surge that hurts him. He frees all the cryptids with the help of Doc and Drew. Soon Doyle fights with Van Rook. We find out that the arena is actually Kur's Tomb and Zak helped Argost by removing the cryptid guardian. Later Van Rook tries to escape from the cops using his jet pack, but it fails and he falls onto of a cop car and his helmet falls off. Now Argost is closer to Kur. We see a strange stone with a familiar face on it—Fiskerton. It appears that Fiskerton is a key to unlock Kur.
