- Main article: Academy City Invasion Arc
After Kihara Amata orders the Hound Dog to split up, Rod is one of the members who go after Accelerator. The Olfactory Sensor leads them to the Third Resource Recycling Processing Facility. Here, Rod asks Nancy why Accelerator would choose the facility, to which Nancy points out that since they are tracking them through his scent, Accelerator intended to travel to a waste treatment plant in order to eliminate his scent and escape from it.
Nancy asks him about the layout of the facility, to which he states that he already has it. She orders him to send it to everyone of their members, and include the number workers and patrol routes in the facility. Rod points out that there would be no need to as the facility is mostly automated and there are only about 14 workers. Nancy relates to him of her strategy in trapping Accelerator without the need for more Hound Dog personnel, and assures him that Accelerator is not almighty after he wonders what happens if he uses his power.
However, they underestimate Accelerator, and after Nancy asks about where Accelerator's whereabouts are using the sensor, Accelerator throws them into utter chaos, with teammates firing at each other out of fear. Rod's fate is unknown afterwards, but Vera has heard from a radio transmission from someone that claims to be Rod that the exits are booby-trapped.
It can be assumed that Accelerator had killed him.
