Synopsis for Suicide Squad: "Gun Duel on Dinosaur Hill!"
Sheriff and Wild One hail from the town of Dusty Hollows, where the Sheriff would out draw and disarm Wild One in a draw and arrest him. Wild One would vow to get back at the Sheriff, however the war started and both were drafted into the military. The Sheriff would end up in the Suicide Squad, and as coincidence would have it when the Squad asks him to break in a new recruit into the group, it turns out to be Wild One.
Send out on a mission aboard a sub, the Sheriff finds that Wild One still is carrying his grudge toward the Sheriff and hopes to finally get revenge. However, before things can go further their sub is attacked by a giant turtle, sending both Sheriff and Wild One out in scuba gear to investigate. They pin the gigantic turtle with a sub's anchor and then kill it with a torpedo. When the blast knocks out Wild One, the Sheriff brings him back aboard the ship where the Wild One calls the Sheriff a fool for rescuing because he's sealed his own fate.
Taking a raft toward an island they are attacked by another giant sea creature, however Wild One kills it with a grenade. Swimming ashore, they take an enemy tank to travel to the location where they have been charged with constructing a coast watching station. Along the way they are attacked by a Brontosaurus which they easily destroy with the tank, however the vehicle is knocked on it's side and they are forced to abandon it.
Finally fed up with the anticipation for revenge, Wild One demands that they shoot it out. As they draw, Wild One shoots the Sheriff's gun out of his hand, this also causes the Sheriff to twist his ankle. When the Sheriff doesn't respond to the Wild One's demands to stand up and shoot it out like a man, the Wild One believes the Sheriff to be a coward and walks away.
Just then a Tyrannosaurus Rex attacks the Sheriff and Wild One doubles back to kill the beast. Realizing what's happened, the Wild One picks up the Sheriff and as they haul off into the jungle the Wild One drops his grudge with the Sheriff and realizes what it means to be a member of the Suicide Squad.
