The Ultimate Sacrifice is a ritual practiced to honor the dark gods, to seek supreme black powers and abilities. The Ultimate Sacrifice was carried by Sargon to please the Goddess, Astarte, in return for potent evil powers. This Sacrifice was hosted by the High Priest of Sargon in the Arena. Sargon devised to dump the civilians to the Arena and burn them alive, which turns out to be a machine that dumps oil into Akkad's water supply. The water begins to flow through the statues in the city, which is then set on fire. During this attack, Mathayus and his allies reach Akkad and find chaos and rioting in the city. However, this sacrifice was made void and futile with the toiling struggle of Fung and Layla.
