Money! Crush Those Bounty Hunters! (Japanese: Money! 賞金稼ぎをブチのめせっ!!, lit. Money! Shōkinkasegi wo buchinomese~!!) is the 13th episode of Slayers. It was first broadcast in Japan on June 30, 1995.
Shortly after, some knights come after Lina and Gourry. Amelia, who is fighting for justice, decides to turn her back and wants to help catch Lina and Gourry.
Lina and Gourry manage to outrun them, but they are approached by a group of people wanting the money. After beating group and group that keep on coming, Lina falls for a not so smart trick (a unicorn's horn hanging in a cage) and gets captured by Amelia.
They all are approached by Zangulus, a bounty hunter, and Vrumugun, a sorcerer. They tie up Lina in small balls and chains, along with a circlet around her head that shocks her everytime she casts a spell. Along with Gourry, they put them in a cell. Lina is fed up and does a spell, despite the pain, that breaks the all the balls/chains while getting shocked herself.
Zangulus and Vrumugun want to give the award money to Amelia, who does not take it. They hear the crash, and they head to the cell. Halfway, they see Lina and are shocked to see her out. She wraps the metal around all of the three and proceeds to shock them and herself.
Lina and Gourry then get their swords from another room, and Gourry cuts off the circlet off Lina's head. Lina and Gourry try to escape, but they are caught by Zangulus and Vrumugun, who want to fight them.
After a while, Amelia comes out and questions Lina, asking, "Who is the bad guy?" Lina isn't surprised and asks who looks bad to her? She responds that both of them look bad, and Lina falls over. Lina then explains to Amelia that Zangulus and Vrumugun set up the fake reward in order to get her. Amelia still doesn't get it and casts a fireball that breaks one of the towers in Saillune.
Zangulus and Vrumugun escape, while Lina and Gourry decide to go to Sairaag. Amelia wants to join them, but Lina knows that the only reason she wants to come with them is that Phil would be furious when they find out she broke one of the towers.
Phil comes looking for Amelia, and Amelia runs with Lina and Gourry as they head to Sairaag city.
