"So, here we are, the last match of the quarterfinals!!" The announcer welcomed the cheering of the crowd once again, ever eager to bring more entertainment.
"Only one fighter shall progress from here, that much is true..." The announcer said, becoming silent and pausing for dramatic effect. "But what we want to see, is who and how, isn't that right folks?!" As the announcer perked back up, the crowd followed suit and another energized uproar began. "Of course it is!"
Gesturing to either side of the ring where the fighters would eventually arrive, the announcer adjusted their sunglasses and smirked. "One is a silent striker, wearing a green hood and white mask, the other is a mystic that summons various creatures to her aid... Let's give a strong and warm welcome to Dai and Crotona!!!" The announcer called, holding their microphone into the air as the crowd roared again, and some even cheered on a specific fighter of their choice!
Now addressing the combatants directly; the announcer would give out the needed reminders. "Are you two ready to show your skills? The crowd is ready and raring to go, so lets give them something to remember! For you two, keep the rules in mind; victory will be determined only by ringout, knockout or forfeit. You may not maim or kill your opponent, and flying is strictly prohibited! You may begin when ready, show us how it's done!"
The Quarter-Final Rounds of the Tenkaichi Budokai begin! This fight will end on May 17th at the time of this thread's creation if someone hasn't lost by then!

The matches were only going to get harder from here on out, as she realized with her previous match. As such, Kon was doing less to hold back on her opponents. While she was initially planning on entertaining them, confident with her strength, the previous match was enough to teach her not to get too over her head. Granted, it wouldn't be long before she forgot it anyways. As such, she walked out not even planning on trying to make it an entirely fair fight for her opponent. Even if the stupid mask's power level detection gadget was still on, it really didn't matter until Crotona rapidly gained power level out of thin air.
Of course, her studies partially paid off, seeing how she knew the general gist of her opponent's fighting style from the clips they were playing for the people back there. Crotona was some weird pointed ear person with a sword and powers to summon creatures from other dimensions, something that was intimidating for Kon at first before she realized that it didn't mean anything so long as she could land her fists on them. After being shot with missiles, beaten senseless by an old man and being burned alive more times than she could count there weren't many scenarios that could intimidate her anymore.
Whatever, she supposed. As Dai, she had no intention of losing this round, and if possible she planned on having similar results as to what happened last round. As she walked out onto the stage, there were a few people that cheered for her, but after her previous experience with the audience, she no longer desired their approval. They were annoying little brats anyways, and the only person she planned on winning this for was herself. After making her way to the stage, she stood there silently, waiting for her opponent to come.
So Crotona had won her fight? She was not sure how the fight had been pretty close. They would have needed more time to decide a fight. But guess they thought she had done better or just picked at random. Crotona didn't know but the point was she was in the next round. She was on a hot streak from the last two fights. She had lost her first fight but now she was on a roll! So if she kept up her confidence she would win! Of course, this was the same for her foe who had won at least their last two fights. So everyone was going to get stronger. Though Crotona felt she was much stronger than from the last round. So she had confidence she could at least hold her own agiasnt her foe.
Crotona walked out into the ring. Her foe didn't seem that friendly from the looks of it. But Crotona was sure she could break her outer shell. Plus not everyone was going to be friendly. They were here to win a tournament. Some people were very focused on that she had met already a few people like that. So what was one more. Crotona walked into the stage waving at the fans. She then turned looked towards Kon and smiled, "Well it is nice to meet you. I hope we can have a good fight." Crotona would then put a hand on her main sword. She'd save using that new sword she got until the right time. She didn't wanna use it and have it countered like in the last round.

Kon had to resist the urge to scoff at her opponent's gesture. Sure, this was supposed to be a "friendly" competition but this was a tournament in the end. As a result, she had no intention of making friends with someone who she planned on beating into the ground. As such, she made no apparent acknowledgement of her words, instead just silently shifting into a combat position and ready to begin. Briefly, she checked her opponent's power level on her scouter, glancing at the number. To her surprise, it was weaker than her previous opponent. Wasn't the quarter finals supposed to have strong people? Ugh, why did they have to give her the weak fighters. Oh well, at least this possibly could be an easy win. If anything though, she hoped that Crotona had some sort of power to pull out of her ass to make this fight better.
Now that they were both on the stage, the true fight had commenced, and Kon wasn't going to let Crotona be the one to take the first move. As she spotted her hand moving towards the hilt of what she believed was the sword, she reacted immediately. Launching off the ground, Kon closed the short distance between the two with what potentially could be alarming speed to everyone watching it. In close proximity, she then aimed a kick at the girl's hand, intending on keeping her from unsheathing the blade one way or another. She didn't exactly know how proficient she was with hand to hand combat, but she was convinced that if she kept the weapon away from her, surely she would be able to have an advantage. Not that she really needed such an advantage to begin with, but taking chances was dangerous, especially with how easy it was to lose a match opposed to an actual street fight.
OOC Note: I forgot to list Scouter as one of the things I brought into the fight. If anyone has any problems of me using it here, just shoot me a DM and I'll edit my post.
Let's start things off with an attack. Kon uses First Strike, sending 6,400 worth of PL heading towards Crotona. ATTACKING LIGHT TECHNIQUE || FIRST STRIKE || 24k Kon attacks the opponent with a simple ki infused strike or ki blast with more force than a typical blow behind it. Power: 20% KP Cost: 1 KP Variants: N/A
Guess they were not going to have fun banter like the last round. Kon seemed pretty ready to just fight. That was fine with Crotona if that was what Kon wanted to do, Crotona would not just give or something. She'd was here to fight too of course. She raised her sword back getting ready for Kon's first attack. Kon rushed forward rushing there with extreme speed before she even fully drew her sword. Kon was really fast, maybe as fast as Delia. This was not good she'd need to transform pretty quick into the fight. She was about to do it but realized she could instead time it to catch Kon off guard. She might have had power beyond her current power. Using her true power when Kon had something hidden was bad news. So she'd hold back for now and then catch her off guard.
Crotona saw the punch fly over but she rang the charm of herself. All of a sudden she'd split into small bugs the punch hitting thin air. It was a trick she had used before but Crotona just used it to get distance and not attack right away. Crotona landed on the edge of the arena flicking her sword across the ground. "Ok, your starting fast that is fine." Crotona gripped her sword before launching towards Kon this time planning to attack. She swung her sword out trying to strike Kon with a series of quick strikes of her blade while watching how she reacted. Crotona would need to learn a bit about her foes moves before she had the confidence to use her full strength.
The Charm of Zoroth is rung as a swarm of smoke like insects surrounds Crotona allowing her to dodge an attack. However, she has no protection while doing this; it is an all or nothing dodge. 60 Percent of 16,000 equals 9,600 so easy dodge.

With her speed and strength, Kon was almost positive that her attack would land. But at the moment of impact and when she planned on following through, she hit... nothing? For a second she was quite confused, seeing as her opponent had dissolved into a swarm of bugs and she had effortlessly managed to dodge her attack. What the hell? She knew that this person had some weird powers, although she didn't expect her to act like this. She felt both disguised at the swarm that awaited her and frustrated that she wasn't able to land her hit. Whatever. She learned her lesson now, and she just had to adapt some more in the future.
Right now, she had other issues to deal with, such as the strikes that were heading over towards her. If they were regular punches and kicks, Kon typically would parry them, no questions asked. However, this was really the first time she was fighting another weapons user (unless you counted Paladion). Would she be able to parry them without getting hurt herself? Well, she was wearing gloves and although the jacket was primarily to obscure her identity, it at least had a bit of padding to them. As the blade closed in though, she quickly realized there was really no time to react. She had to act fast.
With this, Kon brought her hands up, doing her best to deflect the blows. Although the blades cut through some of her clothes, to her surprise they didn't break skin. Sure, the blows still hurt seeing as they were impacting her body, but not the slicing pain she was expecting. Was her body really that strong? With this new revelation in mind, Kon felt much more invincible than she had before. As she deflected a few more strikes, she awaited an opening in her opponent. Once she saw something though, her right fist began to glow green as she went in for a strike. However, this time she she infused her fist with extra ki energy, ready to explode at the moment of impact. Even if Miss Pointy Ears here wanted to try and escape, the force behind her ki should engulf all the bugs that she summoned whole. She wanted to make sure that she couldn't escape it as easily as she had before.
Kon now uses Manifesting Fury (flavored as a ki punch for now) for another 6,400PL worth of damage heading towards Crotona.
Kon flies past the opponent, with an ever increasing in power ball of Ki in her hand that she brings near her opponent's stomach. She then thrusts the hand with the green Ki emitting ball forward and, at point-blank range, releases it, blasting the opponent away.
Crotona charged forward as the blade cut into her clothes but not her skin. She was pretty tough that was for sure. She would need to put more power into her blows to cut into Kon. But she didn't wanna hurt her foe of course. At least super badly. She kept swinging but the strikes were still being deflected. She was not able to break through with any of her strikes. She was going to really transform soon. It was clear Kon had a massive power advantage. But she was not going to give up just yet. She still had her ways to turn this around. So right now she had to focus and take the least amount of damage possible.
Crotona saw another dangerous attack coming. Kon's fist glowed with green energy. While Crotona had no idea what it was she knew it was bad news. Crotona grabbed her sword swinging it upwards. The charm of her father moved. "Belial I need your power!" She didn't have anywhere to go and the attack also seemed to be an aoe attack. She had no real way to dodge this situation without being ringed or hit by the blasts. Hence the offensive attack. Belial energy infused into her sword and smashed agiasnt the blow Kon was making. She would use her sword to try to knock Kon back while also stopping her attack. Not wasting a moment Crotona would then only grab her sword with her left arm. She swept forward to grab Kon by the collar and swing her around. He attempted to throw Kon right out of the ring hoping the attacks canceling would distract Kon.

While she knew her fist was going to hit something this time around, she didn't exactly know what it was going to hit. Soon, she found her answer as her hand met the sword, clashing with the weapon as it whipped up a light windstorm in the arena. The strength behind her blow seemed to match the strength of her ki-infused hand, neutralizing the force behind the two. However, it wasn't long before she realized that she was being pushed back, and was growing dangerously close to the edge of the stage. As such, Kon was once again ready to dig her heels in, keeping the woman from throwing her out until an arm came out and grabbed her by the collar.
Caught briefly off guard, she didn't know exactly what the woman was about to do. As such, she flailed around for a brief moment, instinctively grabbing at the hand that were holding the collar of her jacket that was choking her. Fortunately, this proved to be what kept her in the arena and from losing by a ring out as she was able to hold onto Crotona even after she tried to throw her out. Without her ability to fly, she was already at a dangerous disadvantage, although she did her best not to let it affect her. Utilizing the momentum, she attempted to swing back at the woman, trying to kick her in the torso with both feet. Even if she were to draw her hand back, Kon had already created enough momentum to keep the attack going. She wasn't about to stop this attack, at least not until either she was down, out of energy or her opponent was defeated.
Kon uses First Strike again (just look at the previous attack for information). 6,400 once again. Kon's KP: 2/6 Kon's MP: 6/6 Kon's HP: 0%/270%
Crotona moved forward grabbing her but Kon moved just in time stopping her from throwing her out. She could feel the strength of Kon now. She was really strong! Crotona planted her feet to the ground as she gritted her teeth. She was in too close range to use her sword as good as a punch. Not that she'd get the chance. Kon had already moved in throwing another powerful punch. Crotona didn't have any more tricks to dodge the attack. Her only option was to either power up or just take the attack. She decided to just take the attack. Mainly because she was thinking of the long game. Make Kon fall into a false sense of security.
The blow slammed her into her gut blood flying from her mouth. Crotona was sent rocketing back across the arena smashing some of the plates of the arena high into the air. Crotona then planted her arms mid skid to stop herself. Her sword was sent flying from her arms it flying out of bounds. Crotona coughed, she had lost her main sword. This was really not going in her favor. Kon really had a huge advantage. But she had not gotten this far just to quit. If there was one thing Crotona would not do was quit. Crotona got herself up and went to hold her stomach with one arm. That really hurt bad! She was not sure how many blows like that she could take. Crotona shook her head before planting her feet again. Kon seemed to want to keep attacking so she'd have to deal with that. So Crotona was now on the defensive allowing Kon to lead the pace of the fight for the time being.

Finally, after all the smokes and mirrors her attack finally landed. It just made the feeling her blows hitting flesh all the more sweet. It inflated her already high ego, watching her opponent fly across the arena. Although there was a part of her who was partially hoping for a ring out, she had already won twice through it. For once, she wanted to win by beating her opponent into the ground. Fortunately for her, Crotona didn't fly out of the ring, allowing their fight to continue even further. Better yet, the sword was now out of bounds, making it impossible for her to recover it unless she wanted to lose. However, there was a part of Kon that somehow doubted that she wanted to give in so quickly.
With this, she continued to advance on the fallen warrior, ready to continue her blows. Now she was convinced that there was no way to lose this. It was a shame that she didn't put up as much of a fight as Mister Steel had, but it didn't matter. She was at the very least enjoying this fight, and that was all that mattered. Her fingers once again crackled with ki, ready to unleash another blow to follow up with the one that she had just sent towards Crotona's direction. However, this time she planned on pouring a bit extra force in the attack so that this time she wouldn't be able to recover as easily, if at all from her next attack.
As the force behind her blast grew stronger, it soon became too strong for her to contain. Kon unleashed it, sending a brilliant blast of emerald energy soaring at Crotona, planning on hitting her right as she got up. She didn't think that she would be able to dodge it, and as such Kon was confident in her win.
Kon uses Manifesting Fury again, this time with an MP boost to aid her. This time 9,600 PL worth of damage is heading towards Crotona.
Crotona watched as Kon rushed forward. She was really going to rush in and try to take her out. She was charging another attack and it the one that was meant to not allow her to dodge. She was trying to corner her. Fine with her. Crotona rushed forward as she pulled from his clothes the hilt of a broken sword. Crotona ki began to flow into the blade as she moved forward. She needed to time this right it was now or never. She had Kon right where she wanted her. She just needed to focus her ki and transform in the last second. If she did that she'd be able to take Kon out right now! 'I need all three of your guy's strength especially your Belial.' Crotona's aura flared a bit as she moved forward ready to meet Kon's blast of energy that was heading straight at her.
Crotona launched forward as the blast hit her head down. But Crotona kept moving as though the smoke her hair would turn pink her hair flowing. She powered up as the blast hit allowing her to absorb the blast. Crotona then drew the broken sword as it turned into a blade of Ki. She swung her sword above her head and a visage of Belial appeared above her. Slowly Belial Energy filled her sword. She swung the sword forward to slam it right into the gut of Kon with all her might. She was not sure it'd be enough to knock Kon out of the ring but she had been firing these strong attacks. She had to take advantage while she had the chance. "Belial: Spectral Chop!" She pushed with all her might hoping to blast Kon right out of the ring or at least deal severe damage.

What the hell was happening? For a moment Kon was positive that she had her cornered, yet the next thing she knew her mask was suddenly going insane. Her power was rising, exponentially at that. It far soared past what Mister Steel had before and there was no question that it now exceeded her current strength twice, if not thrice fold. So this bastard was hiding her power as well. That honestly pissed her off, seeing how she had gotten her so confident for no reason? Why the hell did she save it till now? Well, she knew why although currently her emotions were beginning to take over her. Seeing her attack do next to nothing to her, especially as it hit her right in the head further pissed her off. As irritation turned into frustration, such emotion began to turn into strength. She could feel her strength rapidly rising, although she couldn't access it in its full strength either.
That was until Crotona came charging at her with another sword. When the hell did she get a second one? Kon swore she saw the first one fly off the stage and out of nowhere she had another one?! Now she was really getting irritated, although there wasn't much time to think, seeing how she was sending another attack. However, after firing attack rapidly one after another, she was beginning to grow tired. At the very least, Kon had to rest up slightly before she use another attack to her dismay. There was really nothing she could do except dig her heels as the sword hit her belly. This time she really felt it dig in, the slicing pain that she expected earlier really settling in. Blood began to turn her once green hoodie red, and the force of the blow itself pushed her backwards. Even digging in her heels didn't do much to help as she was blown back. At the rate she was going, she was about to get rung out. How humiliating!
That was if she wasn't going to do anything.
The pain only fueled her, filling every crevice of her body with power. Just as she was about to fall out of the arena, Kon extended her arm, the one that wasn't trying to stem the flow of blood from her belly, unleashing a powerful ki blast which would propel her into the air and right back into the arena. She wasn't out quite yet, and there was no way she was going to lose in a manner like this. Seeing as she wasn't allowed to fly, she would instead allow gravity to take its toll, allowing her body to fall back to the ground. In fact, she would even expedite the process with another ki beam to the air, trying to stomp on Crotona's head before she could move.
Oh boy is this a doozy. Kon powers up with x5 Wrathful, although she isn't able to reach her full potential at first and is stuck at 60,000. She then takes the full force of Spectral Chop, bringing her to 120% damage, tl;dr: starts at 32,000, then "access wrathful" which boosts her up to 60,000. It's only after she takes the damage and at the end of the post where she is at her full 160,000PL. Kon's KP: 2/6 Kon's MP: 0/6 Kon's HP: 120%/270%
Crotona swung her sword forward smashing into Kon's frame. She had landed her attack, now she just had to hope it was enough to defeat Kon. It had to be right no way could she take this attack. She had no way to defend herself at this point it seemed. She took the attack head-on and he watched her be sent flying back and cut open by the sword. She was sending Kon flying nearly out of the ring. But as she was about to be knocked out she was able to fire a blast of energy and knock herself back into the arena! "Dammit." Crotona wished she had rushed Kon but she was pretty tired herself. She had no way to really move forward and make sure Kon was knocked out of the arena.
Crotona looked up as Kon was falling towards her as she fired a ki blast down at her. 'Fast!' Crotona raised her sword raising the blade but she was smashed into the ground by the blast "GAAH!" Crotona coughed out as she slammed to the ground. Kon had just gotten a lot stronger. It explained why she survived the attack. That single blast hurt more than her last few attacks for sure. She slowly pushed herself up. She was not sure she could win at this point. But no use in giving up. Plus her attack seemed to have done a lot of damage to Kon. She could still take advantage. Crotona pushed herself up before rushing towards Kon. She swung her sword at her side before aiming to kick her in the gut. She had to take advantage while Kon was still recovering despite her own pain.

With her newfound strength, Kon felt like she was on top of the world. Sure, blood was leaking from her belly, but that just meant she had to deal with her opponent as fast as she possibly could before blood loss would finally catch up with her. This wasn't the first time she found herself in a fight like this, and at this point she was beginning to learn how to deal with situation like these. With one hand still wrapped around the wound, trying to stem the flow of blood as best as she could, Kon still had the ability to fight with the rest of her body. Although her initial stomp attack had missed, there were plenty of other opportunities she had, especially as it seemed as if Crotona was coming to her directly as well.
In comparison to her current speed, the pointed ear woman was almost half as slow as she was. As such, it did make it a bit easier for her to react. Removing her hand from the gash, Kon was able to parry the sword blow, sending a fist into the blunt of the blade in hopes that she could knock the sword out of her hand completely. Whether or not this succeeded didn't really matter, seeing as she was more interested in her next attack: a kick into her wounded gut, a similar move she had performed to Steel last round. It was ironic, although Kon wasn't about to let it happen. With her other free hand she then attempted to grab ahold of her leg with an iron grip. The kick still landed, caushing her to wince in pain but also strengthened her grip on said limb if it were to land. From there, she would then attempt to flip the Konatsian over her shoulder, planning on slamming her face into the ground as many times as she could.
Here's a gif as a general idea for what I'm trying to do. Aside for that though, no KP attacks taken. Kon's KP: 4/6 Kon's MP: 1/6 Kon's HP:120%/270%
Crotona could see Kon was wrapping her wound over her body. Crotona looked up at Kon as her sword swung forward. Her blades slashed into the arms of Kon. But the blade blows were being bounced off just like before. She really was super strong. How was she going to be able to break apart Kon's defense? She didn't know but if she kept moving forward she'd find a way to breakthrough. Anyway, she still had the kick. But as her leg flew up it was caught by the arm of Kon. "Oh..." Crotona realized it was about to be pretty bad. But it seemed her foot still did some damage despite most of it being stopped as it seemed Kon had flinched in pain. That wound she caused seemed to be a new weak point that Crotona needed to take advantage of in this situation.
However, she would not get the chance as she was flipped over and slammed into the ground hard. She felt the world spin around as she was lifted back up again. She was out of control as Kon was smashing her around into the arena floor over and over again. Crotona needed to figure out how they need to deal with this. If she didn't she'd be crushed by these blows. Crotona clasped her hands together "Belial!" She began to grow as Kon would only be grabbing on a small part of himself. Crotona would grow into a massive size large skeleton monster. As Belliel she now had a spectral sword which she used to swing down at Kon. Crotona knew her size was a disadvantage but she'd transform back when she had the chance. It was just used to get her out of the grasp.
Beast Swap: Crotona uses one of her charms and activates its power. She transforms into the form of one of her Konatsian Monster to combat her foe. She can choose to stay humanoid size or grow to around the size of an Oozaru.
