In the forests or plains, nobody can beat Enkidu. But the city is Gilgamesh's territory. The fight is more evenly matched.
All day they battle, but Enkidu is still tired from traveling from the forests. While Gilgamesh is fresh and at the peak of his powers. Gilgamesh gains the upper hand! Enkidu is defeated and thrown from the city! The people begin to lose all hope! Gilgamesh can never be defeated!
