Cheri was moving oddly fluidly, as opposed to the structured and rehearsed movements she usually used. ”What’s worse: the ‘entire puny tuffle military’, or the warrior-culture elite forcing force that can’t win against them?” She got in a quick laugh, very much unlike her normal one. ”Oh, and one last thing: weaklingsayswhat?” The ultimate technique!
Cheri stood and laughed a strange laugh indeed, interrupted only by a shadow growing over her. She looked over to find the Makyoozaru, which only caused her to laugh further as if she had lost any concept of their relative Power Levels. ”OH, look! It’s the big baby!” Something about the demonic Great Ape, for whatever reason, had struck his unhinged version of Cheri as hilarious. ”You’ve blotting out my sun, cloudlicker!”
Of course, even with a hazed mind, Cheri still had a decently clear plan here: just dodge out of the way. Brilliant stuff, I know. But, as the weapon came down, just as she was about to get in the way… Pitt, whom she had stopped paying attention to, came in out of nowhere to grapple her! A primordial fear came across her face when she realised she wouldn’t be able to escape the attack… until, barely a moment later, a devious smile came across her face. She couldn’t save herself from this attack, no, but at least she could try to bring Pitt into it, too. When Pitt tried to throw her to the club, she would try to grab a hold of his arm and bring him into it, too!
Hopefully, after that, Faustus’ tackle would get in, too, for added insult to injury.
Cheri takes no mechanical interaction. She is approaching the point of entering her Desperation form but, not yet.
In the heat of the moment, it was difficult to keep one's cool enough to know with minute detail the movement of every piece on the battlefield. The minuscule weight that released from the beast's arm was barely worth enough to acknowledge, especially not while the pink-haired Tuffle stood in its sights.
With a mighty boom, the club fell upon the earth, sending dust and debris flying in all directions; not nearly as much as before, but still quite the feat of strength. By some dark, twisted form of luck, the weapon had missed its intended target by mere feet -probably due to interference. However, it'd also managed to miss the other Saiyan who had been roped into range. If it continued on its path, even the purple thing that had just shown itself again would collide with the temporarily stilled weapon with a light thud.
It took the dust a moment to settle enough for the beast to recognize its failure, and it bellowed angrily at such a thing. The Tuffle was still in one piece. The purple, amusing thing had come back to life. Pitt was relatively fine, but even that further fueled the beast's unstoppable wrath!
With another deafening cry, a thick black smoke poured from the Makyoozaru's maw, and the light of its magical moon dimmed slightly in the sky. A deep red aura surrounded its body and weapon, tinting the color of the iron some, before it swung the weapon sharply in the direction of the purple creature!
By sheer dumb luck, nobody is crushed to death by Rosemary's club! However, she draws on her Demonic Might and gives Faustus a Great Pummel for 7.5k PL in damage!
"What?" Pitt said immediately regretting it as he tossed the pink Tuffle. She seemed to be changing from anger to full on insanity, laughing before she was ensnared. She wasn't any less cunning however. She flashed Pitt a smile that would haunt him for days. She then grabbed hold of him attempting to take him down with her! Pitt was forced to take action firing a ki blast into the side of the weapon, it didn't stop such a massive swing but took it off course. The club smashed into the ground, leaving a mark that would leave fear into whoever stumbled upon it.
Pitt was about to continue his attacks against Cheri, when a purple bullet smashed into him. The small purple Majin had entered the fray again tackling him far to the floor. Pitt ached, but didn't have time for pain. As he opened his eyes he witnessed Rosemary getting ready to pummel either him or Faustus. "I'm not here for you small fry. Now get off me!" Pitt would attempt to shove Faustus off, rolling out from beneath the Majin. He could only hope that the purple hybrid was Rosemary's target. If not he was toast! Luckily it seemed he wasn't and he seen the attack commence. Through the fog of war he couldn't see the outcome, but that didn't matter now.
He looked towards Cheri as he once again turned his fury into energy. "Cheeky move, but it won't be enough to save you this time!" Pitt dashed towards her, his energy renewed. He once again coated his fist in red energy, doubling the amount as he met his target. He threw a jab to open her guard hopefully. He would then attempt to land a punch square in her abdomen, before realizing the ki like a shotgun. "Comet Smasher!"
Pitt targets Cheri with Comet Smasher! He also expends 2 MP to strengthen it!
Pitt empowers his strikes with ki, he can also expend this energy like a close range shotgun. Power 50% + MP = 60% - 3000 dmg! KP cost: 3
Faustus believed he was helping his ally by attacking the other Saiyan, however his efforts were quickly brushed aside. Pitt managed to force the Majin off of him which left him open for another attack, this time from the great Ape. It seems his attempt at heroism left him forgetting about the hairy mess he had temporarily escaped from. Laying on the canvas he was beginning to wonder how much more of this he could take. Thankfully the ape snapped him out of his daydream by crushing him into an earthy grave. The impact the club made was enough to turn him into nothing more than a puddle.
She was much more than a nuisance now, but what could he do? Slowly, and painfully the process of reforming began. A pair of hands soon emerged from the purple puddle and latched onto the edge of the crater. Then like a slinky he slowly pulled himself out from the crater and back into something resembling a humanoid, though he was noticeably thinner than before. His moment of brilliance ruined by this bastardly baboon? He had little choice in what to do next; his ultimate attack was the only thing left that stood a chance at turning the tide.
But he didn't have the energy to perform such a maneuver; not yet at least. Still stuck to the ground like a spilt soup his legs had no chance of moving him out of the way which left him looking for an opening. Looking up at the beast she was no doubt contemplating all of the ways to finish him off all the while he saw no obvious weakness. But what about the tail? She still had one of course; maybe that was an avenue? With nothing left to lose Faustus rolled flat onto his stomach, then with his head aimed at the tail he stretched his neck out across the battlefield with his jaw chomping at his target.

Cheri, still riding the high of Pitt having said ‘what’, was brought out of that somewhat by the disappointment of Pitt not being squashed by the Great Ape. Sure, him being squashed meant that she wasn’t squashed, either, but in Cheri’s current destructive mindset, her not being smashed into the ground was a bit of a downer.
The anger was reaching further into her, peeking into places where it would have no proper business. It spurred the body into continual action, and flared the ki around the body like fuel to the fire…! Cheri’s Power Level had been gradually rising ever since the whispering began, but now it had solidly reached a new threshold. This was normally the power she could only access when she was Desperate, but now that power had been baited out by a supernatural rage. All of this happened as Cheri laughed as Pitt and Faustus tangled into each other like the puppets of a puppet show the puppeteer was having a heart attack in the middle of.
When Pitt came to attack, Cheri was ready for him, even if it might have looked like she wasn’t paying attention to any of them at all. She ducked under his quick jab before catching the ki-empowered punch aimed at her abdomen, squeezing it and releasing the full energy of a Lightspeed Shot, if she could, directly into his fist!
"I hope you weren't all that attached to this hand!"
Otherwise, if he’d gotten free, it was still a blast of the normal ridiculously-fast pink energy. Regardless, if he was close to her after it, she would try to fling him away like one might an alarm clock at 5am.
Righto! To speed things along a bit, let’s get into action! Cheri uses a Transformation Boost for 4MP, increases her transformation modifier by 1 for this turn! Cheri transforms into her x2 (currently x3) Desperation form! Using Second Wind, she heals 10% damage. Cheri uses a Lightspeed Shot (4,500PL, Homing) against the Comet Crusher (3,000PL). The Lightspeed Shot wins: it shoots towards Pitt with 2,250PL and the Homing variant!
Ah, yes. The crunch of a body underneath her club. The spray of viscera and blood in all directions. The last fleeting whimper of the soul before its life is snuffed out...
The purple creature gave her none of these things, and that was starting to anger the beast even more. When it lifted its weapon, the puddle that had once been her foe regrew itself into a humanoid figure, and though the mind of the hybrid found it amusing still, rage and her instinctive need to destroy had taken over in their full force.
However, the creature was still capable of fighting, and as the Makyoozaru raised its weapon high, the purple head shot straight for its tail. Teeth sank into the sensitive flesh, and an earth-shaking psychic yelp rang out as the monster roared in both fury and pain. Its red eyes glowed with malicious need for revenge, and the beast turned its head as it took in a deep breath. Finally, it exhaled in retaliation, blowing a thick smoke over the purple foe for several seconds.
This gas worked quickly on the environment, burning the soil a dark, sickly color and causing the foliage to rot away in mere moments. What would it do to one's flesh and blood?
Faustus has crossed the line! Rosemary seeks to melt his face clean off with her Dark One's Breath fueled by Demonic Might! 15k damage and Bleed if it hits!
As pitt raced towards his opponent, he felt her power spike too late. With a newfound speed, she easily dodged his jab. It seemed the strength he had wasn't going to cut it anymore. His follow up was quashed, his wrist locked up by the Tuffle. She had a scary look on her face as she let loose her ki attack.
Pitt's fist was damaged badly, the Saiyan growling in pain. As the pink faded away his fist was revealed to be too damaged to use any longer. Pitt was no match to the strength used to fling him away. Catching himself in the air. He grit his teeth in anger towards Cheri, had she not been using her full strength yet? "Were you just hiding this strength from me this whole time pipsqueak? You dare pace yourself against a Saiyan soldier? I'll make you regret that!"
S Pitt wasn't deterred by Cheri's transformation. While she looked the same as before her energy levels revealed she had powered up. The two locked into combat still, their anger getting the best of them. At this point the entire battlefield had forgotten the tech. Their main goal was to finish the opposition. A classic Tuffle vs Saiyan match.
Pitt dashed in towards his opponent, not wanting to let her enjoy her small victory. He came before her bearing one fist and elbows, not wanting to damage his hand further. That didn't stop him though, he would fall in battle or leave victorious.
Pitt loses the clash taking 2,250 - 45%!
His hand is injured but at least he gains 2 KP and 2 MP
Saiyan Pride is now active giving Pitt a 10% boost to all techniques!
The attack had worked! He clenched down as hard as he could into the flesh of the ape's tail and with that a scream so powerful it shook the ground beneath him. It didn't bring her down like he hoped though; in fact it appeared to have only really made her angrier. Now he was really in for something bad. The beast looked down at Majin who quickly pulled his body up to his head like two ends of a rubber band snapping together. He got into the beast defensive position he could but nothing prepared him for what was coming up next.
From it's mouth came a terrible smog which burned and digested all around Faustus. With his hands over his head he quickly felt his skin beginning to sizzle and pop. The heat was so intense that his very being lost it's shape, being reduced to little more than a puddle at this point. Once the attack he had no real way of fighting back any more; maybe he could charge up one final blast but he still needed a bit more time to prepare himself. He slithered as quickly as he could away and shouted out to his ally.
"I'm tagging out; she's your problem for now." He didn't know if he could hear him or not but that didn't matter. He just needed to take a break. On the chance she didn't hear, or maybe just didn't care, he had one final trick. "MK, get this beastly bitch off of me!" With that shout his Droid, which had been hiding from the carnage, finally found it's courage and entered the battle. It flew over in front of it's master and covered him for a moment. The best shot he probably had was sacrificing it as a distraction, though he wouldn't tell it that.
"Good work, boy. Now go out there and show her who's boss." His Droid wasn't here to waste anybody's; quickly powering up into it's highest transformation. That wouldn't get it very close to the Oozaru but it would at least mean it wasn't a completion squash. "Hit her with your taser!" MK buzzed around the head of the ape and revealed it's electroshock barrel; launching a long ranged bolt of electricity at her. Whether this was effective or not didn't matter, he just needed a bit more time.

”Don’t beat yourself up about it. Many saiyans are as pathetically weak as you.” She said, smiling with ill-intent, before somersaulting out of the way of a large area of caustic, necrotic gas from the accursed Great Ape.
However, in the background, the Superego was working against the Id: Cheri’s concepts of how one ought to act, as well as her strategic sense, were pulling themselves to the forefront. Her superego was telling her that, given the situation, the best thing to do was run away. The tech was unlikely to be returned and, knowing what she knew about it, wasn’t at all concerned that the saiyans could gain any sort of advantage from having it. While Pitt was certainly too weak to worry about, Rosemary was 2.5x Cheri’s own power, even in this heightened form of hers! Cheri called to flee, to run, to just get out of there alive and, if need be, rescue Faustus in the same motion… but Cheri, in the usual sense, was not the one in front of the controls anymore. And, not yet.
The still-altered Cheri was prepared for Pitt’s assault, and had the greater power with which to trip Pitt up and punish him for trying to get in her way. As Pitt flew at her and tried to smash her with his fist and elbows, Cheri was there to dash to his side, grab the arm (the one that didn’t have the unusable hand) and, by smashing her knee into it from below, to the best of her ability, render that unusable too. However, it was quite the situation she was trying to make. Even with Pitt being half her power, it was more than possible to get out of such a predicament with a working arm.
Eyo Faustus did you just take 150% damage? I think that’s your Critical Damage, so possibly you should be KO’d. Unless that was you
A deep, sinister chuckle escaped the beast as it smiled down at its melting foe. Finally, its bloodlust had tasted something sweet. It calmed just a little for that moment, though with the amount of energy it had expended to finally finish off the purple creature, that wasn't entirely unexpecte-
Oh, for fuck's sake!
Much to the beast's rebuilding anger, the creature still lived. Even the puddle it had been reduced to on the ground still spoke, and shouted commands to its ally. The Makyoozaru's fatigue was pushed aside, made a problem for another time, and it gripped its weapon harder and raised the club high to truly finish off its foe this time. It needed this thing to die, and now.
However, another ally of the purple creature's showed itself, and the beast's attention was drawn by the whirring thing flitting about its head. It scowled and roared at the machine, though after expending so much of its energy all at once, it had no means of defending itself against the attack to come. As the bolt struck, the beast roared with pain, sharing its anger and frustration with those around via its dark, telepathic whispers.
The Makyoozaru swung its weapon wildly at the flying machine in an attempt to disable and ground the nuisance. Its anger swelled ever more, driving it into a primal fury full of shouts, erratic movements, and careless attacks.
Rosemary tanks the Electroshock for 30% damage! She is pissed!
Pitt attacked the Tuffle with strengthened resolve, exhilarated to be surrounded by such strong beings. It seemed Cheri in her new form was much to quick to be caught by any of his attacks. On top of that she attempted to crush his forearm with a metal plated knee. In the nick of time Pitt managed to send a small amount of ki to his elbow meeting the attack halfway. The vibrations of the attack spread across his arm, a dull pain flowing through it.
Everyone here had entered a new state of power. Sensing their raised ki Pitt knew he was falling behind quickly. He knew he also had the ability to transform, but he wouldn't allow himself to lose control. He feared he'd end up on a rampage much as Rosemary threatened to do. He had to retain his senses to make sure the battle didn't spread past the desolate location.
Still he could tap into his reserves, his muscles bulking up. He let out a battle cry as his energy surged to coat his fists. The red energy was much more unstable this round, but it was the same technique he had just used. Pitt knew the same old trick wouldn't work twice on Cheri, in fact it didn't work the first time. This go he would use her cockiness and rage against her. Of course she'd believe him stupid enough to offer his other hand up, the same way he just had. He rushed in exactly as before, this was just a feint of course. Hoping she'd once again go for his hand, and when she did he would release a explosion of energy towards her at point blank!
Pitt uses Comet Smasher once more!
Power 50% + 10% from Saiyan pride! - 6k dmg headed towards Cheri! KP cost: 3 Variants: 2x Power Up, Cost reduction
MK-SB had served Faustus well, but against this beast it really stood little chance. Thankfully the Electroshock attack had done all that the Majin needed it to, because after that the Oozaru had little trouble in swatting the machine away. The impact of it's club must have sent it's circuitry back to the stone age; it'd take a while to repair. Now Faustus was truly on his own, and if he was going to find a way to topple the great ape it would have to be done himself. He had been storing his energy for some time; now he was ready to use it.
At this point his body could hardly take shape at all, being reduced to little more than a puddle on the ground. It took everything he had left to form something resembling a head to sprout out of said puddle. He had prepared for his ultimate attack; would it be enough? Did he even had the ability to pull it off any more? It didn't really matter at this point did it. It was all or nothing now. Whether it worked or not he would be attempting to flee after this, so he spread his mouth wide and fired his Annihilation attack.

The superego was encroaching. And it was almost in charge again, too… but the Id had a task, and it wasn’t going to give up on it so quickly. She needed to kill destroy eviscerate tear limb from limb tenderise Pitt. Until that job was done, Cheri would not stop. Until that job was done, there was no 'stop'.
When Pitt rushed in, as he had done before, Cheri reacted in much the same way as she had before. However, there was no hand to grab, only a feint, a trick: instead, energy blasted straight into her from straight in front of her! When the smoke and dust cleared, Cheri was standing in the same spot, but marked with burns and bruises! And, yet, she was still smiling, and held a ball of pink energy in her hand…
”Any pain I endure is inconsequential if I can inflict on you at least as much!”
And you can guess the rest. But, in case you aren't all that good on the basic pattern recognition front: Cheri threw the ball of pink ki at Pitt who, presumably, was still right in front of her!
"Your continuing to breath is a universal annoyance, but, no stress, I'll fix that soon enough!"
Cheri takes the full damage of the Comet Smasher. Cheri uses a Lightspeed Shot (3,000PL, Homing) on Pitt!
The beast's club had made short work of the pestering machine. It bared its many teeth with a wide sneer as the metal fly was swatted away to land somewhere in the brush at the edge of the battle. Finally, it felt with great glee, it had destroyed something.
The Makyoozaru raised its head high and roared its victory cry. Its exuberant joy could be felt in the ferocity with which it celebrated. Its one free hand rose up and thumped against its armored breast, then again as it signaled to an imagined audience that it had won its match. When the beast was satisfied with itself, it turned its attention towards the pink-haired Tuf--
However, it still had not bested its foe. A bright light and the crackle of energy drew its attention away from the remaining battle. Its monstrous red eyes furrowed against the sight of the purple puddle, now having grown a head that threatened it with an attack that rivaled the smog that had just been used against it.
The Makyoozaru roared again in defiance of this foe that refused to die, and in its overwhelming rage and fury, its power spiked ever further. The muscle underneath its stretched and beaten armor flexed against its coat of fur. The glow of its eyes almost seemed to grow more intense. The purple creature fired its attack, and...
The Annihilation Attack did anything but its namesake. Like a bullet through the fog, its own presence seemed to push the smoke that had just been the monster's body out of its way as it sailed passed, only to evaporate somewhere in the upper atmosphere of the planet as its energy was spent.
The beast grinned sadistically down at its foe, and raised its club high in both hands. As it screamed in primal fury, it brought the club down onto its liquefied foe again, and again, and again. Its attacks were as unrelenting as its rage, threatening to break open the very ground itself as its assault came to resemble a small, localized earthquake.
Rosemary's strength builds further off her uncontrolled rage, as she spends 4MP to gain a +x1 modifier for this turn! At 30k PL, she uses her Dark Departure for a one-time 50% Evasive technique and dodges the Annihilation Attack!
She then goes bananas on what's left of Faustus with basic attacks!
Pitt let out a hearty laughed as his attack connected, he was sure that the Tuffle was destroyed. "It seems that all that talking got you killed! No worries though brat, I'll make sure to make good use of your tech!" But Pitt's eyes widened when that pink ball of energy flashed from behind the smoke. In his hubris he didn't even sense that the Tuffle had withstood his blast. She promised to make him regret his actions, and hurt him twice as much as he did her. It seemed his ally also had made a slip up, Faustus the Majin hybrid also had an attack ready. And almost in sync Pitt and Rosemary were fired upon. While Rosemary was able to avoid being hit, Pitt was caught dead center.
The ball of energy sizzled as it washed over Pitt, the towering Saiyan was injured greatly. It impacted his chest his armor doing nothing in the face of such power. A huge hole was laid to bare on Pitts plating, the skin beneath bleeding and singed. He fell to the ground with a heavy thud leaving an imprint of his figure. When his consciousness returned to him it had only been a few moments, but he could tell he was in dee trouble. Worst over he could tell the tech on his back was now damaged, from the blast and the fall.
Knowing he couldn't trust his ally to do much more than assist with killing their foes, he devised a plan. He stood up slowly coughing up blood that spattered the floor. The warrior could tell something internally was broken, at least he could still move. He had to buy himself time to recover, and he knew he wasn't leaving here with the tech any longer. The pink menace had made sure of that. If he could take Cheri out, it was a greater victory than just bringing back broken tech. With a heave he tossed the experimental weapon towards the pink Tuffle. Sending a ki blast along with it, causing the unstable weapon to explode. "You forget about this? If you want it so bad, here take it!"
He doubted it would do much, but hopefully the onset explosion would buy him a bit of time. Pitt was down, and on his way out, but this fight wasn't over.
OUCH Pitt is hit for 3k damage by Lightspeed Shot - A whopping 60%!
