"Charm Attack: Veteran Mercenary" is the third episode of the first season of the Queen's Blade anime.


Tomoe and Shizuka arrive on the mainland. Tomoe attempts to blend in by choosing an outfit more fitting for the mainland when she overhears a Queen's Blade battle being undertaken. Leina and Risty reach the entrance to where the Queen's Blade tournament is being held. Echidna later arrives, charged with returning Leina to Claudette. Echidna distracts Leina and Risty with her snake and steals Risty's gold. Leina decides to enter a competition to earn enough money to continue. The competition involves mud wrestling in front of a large crowd. In her first match, Leina tries to get close in an attempt to wrestle her opponent, but she keeps dodging Leina's every attempt until Leina attempts led to bits of mud to smear all over her opponent, distracting her long enough for Leina to get behind and toss her down. Leina is victorious in her first match but only wins 5 gold pieces, not enough to pay their bills, so she has to keep fighting, however this time in an oil match against Echidna. Leina has some doubts but recalls her victory at her previous match and tries to attack first, only to slip miserably on the oil. Echidna offers to help her up, but tricks Leina into a painful bear hug. Not willing to give up, Leina lifts Echidna, who asks then what. Leina throws her down in a pin, but Echidna uses the oil to slip away and begins to subject Leina in a series of painful holds. She continues to have the upper hand in the battle as Leina has difficulty fighting in the oil, and Echidna chases out all the spectators just as she is about to KO Leina. Meanwhile, Risty breaks into where the winnings are kept and steals them. Echidna's snake, Keltan, bites Leina on the chest and poisons her, but at the last moment Echidna gives her an anti-venom through a kiss. Leina has passed out and when she comes to Risty is gone. Leina heads off to find Risty.
