vrm.6.14 O, king! Either Kumbhakarna or Indrajit and either Mahaparshva or Mahodara and either Nikumbha or Kumbha or even Atikaya cannot withstand Rama in battle.

vrm.6.43 Then, Nikumbha the swift handed Rakshasa again wounded Nila by a hundred arrows in the battle and laughed continuously.
vrm.6.43 Nila chopped the head of the charioteer of Nikumbha by the wheel of the same chariot in that fight, as Vishnu in a battle.
vrm.6.57 "Either myself or Kumbhakarna or yourself my army chief or Indrajit or Nikumbha and none else could undertake such a task!" "For that reason, taking a company of warriors, you quickly place yourself in their midst and set forth in order to triumph over all those Vanaras.

vrm.6.76 O Kumbha, the elder brother of Nikumbha! Both your prowess and the swiftness of your arrow are wonderful.
vrm.6.77 Seeing his brother stretched on the ground, Nikumbha cast angry looks at Sugreeva, as it would burn him into ashes.
vrm.6.77 Then, Nikumbha of firm mind grasped his iron club, stupendous like the crest of Mount Mandara and which was bright, festooned with wreaths and provided with iron plates, measuring five digits in breadth.
vrm.6.77 Wielding that weapon, which in size resembled the flag staff of Indra, Nikumbha of terrific prowess, roared with his mouth yawing wide.
vrm.6.77 With these ornaments and with his club, Nikumbha assumed the threatening semblance of a cloud, with lightning and thunder and shot with a vivid rainbow.
vrm.6.77 The strong Nikumbha, with his arms as strong as his club, hurled his club having sun like splendour, on the breast of that mighty Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 The sky above appeared whirled around in the toss of Nikumbha s club, as though Alaka the City with the palaces of Gandharvas performed rapid revolutions and the moon and the stars and the planets joining the rotating race.
vrm.6.77 The hot tempered fire of Nikumbha, which had his club and ornaments for its flame and his fury as its fuel, became dangerous to be approached, like the fire rising at the time of dissolution of the world.
vrm.6.77 The mighty Hanuma, on his part, stood alone among them, with his breast bared to the fury of the attack, in front of Nikumbha.
vrm.6.77 The strong Nikumbha, with his arms as strong as his club, hurled his club having sun like splendour, on the breast of that mighty Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 But, by that blow, Nikumbha was unmoved, recovered soon and grasped the unwieldy bulk of Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 Freeing himself from Nikumbha, Hanuma the son of Marut then threw him down on the ground and treated him with blows.
vrm.6.77 Throwing down Nikumbha by main force and with a supreme effort, Hanuma descended on him, leaped on his chest and pounded it mercilessly.
vrm.6.77 Then with both hands, he caught the enemys neck, twisted it about and tore off his huge head, while Nikumbha was horribly roaring.
vrm.6.77 Then, while the roaring Nikumbha was killed in battle by Hanuma, there ensued an exceedingly terrific struggle between the enraged Rama and Makaraksha, son of Khara, a ruler of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.77 When it was clear that Nikumbha had expired, the Vanaras shouted with glee, the quarters thundered with satisfaction, the earth rocked with joy, the heaven appeared to crumble and fear seized the army of Rakshasas.
