As Tabor ascended to his Adept Blade form, so too did his opponent enter its own special form. Darkness surrounds the demon as its muscles began to grow in size, and Tabor could sense that the two are once again on equal footing. "You have a transformation of your own? Good, because I thought for a moment that this fight would become too boring." As the demon was grabbing more and more rocks to throw at him, Tabor debates enacting his plan, but seeing as how the demon was just going to keep on doing this until the end of the match, it isn't like he has much of a choice. Tabor grabs onto both of his ears and rips them off. Purple blood pours out from where his ears used to be, and Tabor has now become deaf. In most situations, this would put Tabor at a massive disadvantage, but given his opponent, it would actually prove to be quite beneficial.
The demon launches more balls of ki, but Tabor couldn't really tell if they were getting louder or not since he can't hear anymore. He'll worry about hearing later, but for now, he has to deal with taking care of his opponent. He aims the tip of his rapier at the demon, and a ball of ki emerges from the tip, growing rapidly in size. Tabor pours all of his energy into the ball, expanding until it was about as big as Tabor himself. "Cannonball!" Tabor shouts from the top of his lungs as he aims directly at the demon, "Fire!" The ball is then launched at the demon, consuming just about everything in its path as it makes its way towards its target.
Tabor launches Cannonball at Sesame, dealing 100% or 25,000 damage if left unblocked.
Sesame glanced as he was ready to fight Tabor. He seemed quite impressed he had a transformation. And now he knew this fight was not going to be too boring. He threw the rocks towards Tabor creating more of sound to mess with Tabor. But he was caught off guard as Tabor literally ripped off his ears. Was this guy willing to rip off his own parts of his body just to get rid of that weakness. He would no longer to be able to hear. He supposed it was a good idea but to see a man willing to do this shocked Sesame. This man had a lot of gall to do such a thing. TAbor had now earned his respect that was for damn sure.
Sesame moved forward as the ki balls flew towards Tabor. But as he rushed forward he saw Tabor raised the rapier and a ball of ki form at the end of it. That was not good it was quite a large looking ball of Ki. Sesame went to leap to the side as he roared out the name of the attack. He watched as his ki blasts were destroyed and the blast flew too fast for him to dodge, '!' Sesame was hit by the blast as he roared out "GUAHAAHHAH!" Sesame roared out in pain he could not cry out. He had no choice. Sesame was sent rocketing from the ki blast. Sesame slammed into the water sinking below. Sesame quickly came too however and rocketed himself back out of the water. He breathed out hard blood trickling down his right arm. Busted apart from the ki blast. He was bloody in other places too and he found it even hard to stand in the aftermath of such an attack. He took it head on. If he took it head on again he'd probably be close to death. It might of been the most hurt he had ever been.
Sesame grinned raising his left arm up as the right arm hanged to his side. He shifted back into his martial stance. He slid forward slightly pushing the dirt aside. "Impressive." Sesame spoke for the first time in the mortal realms his voice echoing softy in the area. But no one would hear it. With Tabor missing his ear he'd just see his lips move. Sesame moved forward launching towards Tabor. He was a lot slower then he would of been thanks to the damage but he launched forward aiming to kick Tabor in the left leg before kicking off the ground to knee him in the face.

While the sides of Tabor's head is still causing him quite a bit of pain, at least he can power through it while he finishes off this demon. Thankfully, his Cannonball attack seemed to have been a direct hit against its right arm, even going so far as to break its bones and launching it into the water below. Satisfied with his attack, he puts away the rapier for now and move in to see if the demon was still alive. Seconds later, the demon returns to the surface, his arm left a bloody mess while the rest of his body wasn't in the best condition either. "Take this as a lesson: Do not take your chances against a Warrior," Tabor shouts as he once again prepares for any potential incoming attacks. When the time is right, Tabor will bring his rapier out and finish the job.
As the demon enters their own fighting stance, albeit with their right arm still broken, it utters a single word, but Tabor couldn't actually hear what it was saying. He only saw the lips move, and he presumes that it was just growling at him. It's not like he was given any evidence that the demon could speak and say something other than grunts. The demon once again presses the attack, and moves in to kick Tabor in the leg. While it succeeds in landing a decent blow, the demon follows it up by trying to knee the namekian in the face. What he should realize, however, was that it wasn't wise to try the same twice against someone like Tabor. Tabor backs away from his opponent, and if he lands, he will stretch his arms out to grab onto his opponent, lift them up into the air, and slam them into the sandy beach. Should they stay up in the air, however, a few stray ki blasts wouldn't hurt.
Sesame rushed forward towards Tabor as he called out that he should not mess with a warrior. While that was true, Tabor should also not be so quick to count out an Assassin. He still had many tricks left in the bag. He fired forward kicking Tabor in the leg but the knee was missed. Seems he read right through it. He felt his leg get grabbed. '!' He was being swung as Tabor extended his arms out. So they could strech? That was good to know. Sesame was being carried down by the arm. He was swung down but he wrapped around the earbud that extended out his back. He wrapped it around Tabor arm as he slammed down. Through the smoke Tabor grabbed onto the bud trying to pull Tabor closer and catch him off guard.
Hoping to use this to catch him off guard he'd attempt to kick Tabor in the gut to seperate them. Sesame then pulled his left arm back the air vibrating agiasnt his palm. This fight was getting his blood pumping so many new noises to hear. But he still had not gotten the noise he wanted, the fear of the beating heart of Tabor's. He still remained composed through all this. What gave him such resolve. Was it his strength, his desire to protect what was here? Or maybe it was something else Sesame didn't understand. All he knew these Namekians were very interesting and far different from the demons he meet. They were fearful beings, always looking to one up someone. Not these creatures. Sesame grinned as his palm thrusted forward. Regardless of if he had grabbed and kicked Tabor away he fired a sound wave to rocket into Tabor chest and knock him down.

While Tabor manages to grab onto the demon, what happened next was something he didn't quite anticipate. His opponent was slammed into the ground, but while smoke was still clouding it, Tabor attempts to pull them back, only to realize he's now grabbing onto that strange looking bud on its back. The demon comes forth once again and lands a kick into Tabor's gut, forcing him to let the intruder go as he stumbles backwards from the impact. Tabor was now trying to catch his breath as the demon presses the attack once again, now generating a soundwave to collide with him. Tabor takes the hit directly and is sent back a few feet.
Tabor gets back up onto his feet as quickly as he could and faces off against the demon once again. If this demon was able to withstand his Cannonball attack and pull off something like this, then Tabor most definitely isn't going up against some slouch. Something about this whole situation has been bothering Tabor quite a bit, however. This entire time, the demon has only spoken one word, and has shown the namekian that he was rather interested in the shrine itself. Why was it that the demon was there in the first place? He couldn't think about that now: He has a fight to win. Tabor once again draws his rapier and decides to go on the offensive himself, dashing forward and attempting to land a couple of quick stabs.
Tabor takes the full damage of Heart Racer, dealing a total of 40% damage to him
The buds proved to be something that caught the Namekian off guard. He was able to catch his arm with them and then kick him in the gut forcing him back. Even better that left him wide open to the sound wave that escaped his palm. He pulled his fist back the sound thumping throughout the air as he glanced towards Tabor. The Namekian was going to be tough to beat. It was if he was absorbing all his blows. Without his sound tricks, thanks to Tabor removing his ears, he'd have to out brute force the Namekian. It was not his strong suit meanwhile, that seemed to be exactly Tabor's strength. Considering that Ki blast he had just used, it seemed to be exactly his comfort zone.
Tabor was not going to give him time to think though as he charged forward with his rapier. So now he was going for fast attacks. He watched the rapier strikes come in as he began to dodge while raising his broken right arm up to block if any go through. Of course some got through one flying forward before he put his arm in the way to let him stab the broken arm. Of course that caused it more damage but then the use this chance to wrap the sword once more with one of the earpods to slow it down from escaping. He then bring his left arm up going for a couple of quick blows to the midsection trying to knock the air out of the Namekian with each blow. Even through the pain he felt calm, he would defeat this Namekian. That was just what an assassin did they killed whoever stood in their way regardless of who it might be.
Tabor manages to catch the demon by surprise as he moves in to stab the demon with his trusty rapier. He manages to land a few stabs against the demon, but surprisingly it was also using its broken arm to block some of the blows. It's clearly causing it quite a bit of pain, so it made the warrior wonder why it was doing all of this. Then the demon begins their own counterattack, and they wrap one of those strange pods around his rapier and then proceeds to land a couple of punches into the namekian's gut, causing him to lose his breath. Given few options, Tabor attempts to grab onto the demon's arm and hold it in place while he lands a clean headbutt against his target. Tabor stumbles backwards as he plans his next move against the demon.
He could potentially fire off another Cannonball shot, but he'll need time to fully prepare for it, and this time around, the demon might be ready for such an attack. Perhaps if he pulled out his other ace in his sleeve, it could give him the edge he needs to come out on top. The question now is what is the demon going to do about all of this. Surely they've recovered quite a bit of energy themselves. Could they potentially be preparing an attack themselves, or are they waiting for him to strike first?
Sesame was still not getting what he needed to finish off Tabor. Despite landing the blow he could not get Tabor to crack. The Namekian was tough. What was worse Tabor slammed his head into his skull. His pod unwrapped around the sword blood dripping down a nasty gash in his head from the clash of heads. This namekian had a hard skull and hard armor. It was like he was facing a fortress. Sesame pulled himself free of the sword as his right arm was a mess. He was getting gouged apart. This sword was clearly a dangerous weapon. Sesame could not let Tabor hack away at him. He would need to take care of Tabor quickly. Sesame pulled his left arm back before rushing towards Tabor.
Sesame began to move quickly around Tabor sizing him up. He would need another sort of attack to break though. Perhaps he could find another weakness he could use. Though without Tabor's ears he could not hear. Unless? He did now had the damaged areas where his ears had been. He wondered if he could take advantage of that. After moving for a bit. Sesame launched towards Tabor and prepared to attack. First he swung his broken arm forward causing a large spray of blood to fly towards Tabor's eyes. Without his hearing, if Sesame covered Tabor's sight he could take advantage. Sesame then would try to leap above Tabor and swing his left arm. He fired another sound shockwave aiming to slam it near where Tabor's left ear use to be hoping to mess with Tabor's equilibrium with the blow.

The headbutt was a complete success, and while Tabor himself was slightly dazed from the attack, the demon finally let go of his weapon and he manages to get some distance. He points his rapier at the demon as it charges at him once again, its left arm being kept behind its back for some reason. What exactly this demon had in mind didn't matter to Tabor at this point since now he's wide open for his ultimate attack. Before Tabor could do anything, however, the demon swings its right arm forward and sprays blood right in front of him. The blood lands onto the warrior's face, and he is temporarily blinded by the attack.
With both his sense of hearing and sight temporarily disabled, Tabor was in a rather tight situation and he has no idea where his opponent is. He's already prepared his attack, but he doesn't know exactly where his opponent is, that is, except he still has one last trick up his sleeve. If he can't see or hear his opponent, he'll have to sense his energy. While his rapier is glowing a vibrant purple, Tabor stands completely still and senses the demon's energy, trying to pinpoint exactly where it was. After a few seconds, he was able to track his opponent and sees that it's above him and moving towards his left.
"There you are!" Tabor shouts as he dashes towards the demon's location, his rapier growing brighter and brighter with each second. "Shield and Sword!" At that moment, Tabor begins to swing his rapier at blinding speeds far faster than the average person could see, and although he misses the incoming shockwave and loses chunks of his shoulder and parts of his arm as well as further damage to his eardrums, his attack appears to be heading right towards the demon. Whether or not it lands, whatever remains of the energy in the weapon is absorbed back into Tabor, granting him protection as he starts rubbing away the blood.
Tabor takes the full damage from Heart Racer, taking 40% damage in the process. Tabor uses his Sparking Technique: Shield and Sword, dealing 110% damage or 27,500 potential damage. Due to Back-up Plan, Tabor also gains a free sustained 40% defense for 3 turns.
Sesame head slammed true and got away while moving forward the blood slamming into Tabor's face. He was able to damage Tabor once more and rush forward ready to attack him. The demon rushed forward but Tabor seemed to be ready and seemed to pick up where he was. Sesame realized too late that these Namekians were sensor. Quickly he tried to cover his presence with his Anti Sensing abilities but Tabor had already located him. He moved forward his palm taking out a large chunk of the Namekians shoulder. However the man roared out the name Shield and Sword as the rapier flew forward stabbing into him with amazing force. Even more powerful than the last attack he had taken. Sesame was sent rocketing back skidding through the ground and taking serious damage. Sesame could feel consciousness fading in and out. Sesame had not prepared himself for a fight like this. He could hear his heart thumping as blood trickled down the stab wounds he had sustained. Was he going to die?
Sesame slowly pulled himself up but feel back to a knee. He had taken too much damage to casually stand from. To able to stand and all might of been a miracle in of itself. It was clear the battle was lost. He needed to prepare his escape. He would not be able to defeat the Namekian. He had never had foes fight back with such vigor. Usually those he killed were so weak. Was this the strength of a true warrior. Not an assassin who hid in darkness or a peasant who couldn't fight back, or a lord who counted warriors to fight in his stead. These thoughts raged through his and kept him going. They gave him something to cling on as darkness clouded his thoughts. Sesame could see the shield around Tabor's body. He had no choice he'd need to kill knock the wind out of the Namek's sail then escape.
Sesame pulled his palms back focusing all his energy, everything he had left to muster. Sesame thrusted his palms out three times in quick successions as he felt all his strength left sap from his body. The quick combination of three attacks caused dust to fly up to conceal his position as Sesame slinked into the water. Tabor though had to worry about the three sound waves. Two of them looked like two white rings, moves that Tabor had seen before. The last one however, had a pink ring to it. This attack flew first and its purpose was to help crack through Tabor's barrier before the last two slammed into him hard to knock cause heavy damage to Tabor as Sesame crawled into the water concealing his presence and falling in so Tabor would hopefully be unable to find him. Considering he could not hear, and would of just got blasted, Sesame was sure this had a high chance for success.

Tabor's attack landed true, and the demon was sent flying backwards, now bloodied from head to toe and nearing death. Tabor aims his rapier at the demon and slowly makes his way towards his fallen bardiche, thinking that he's basically won at this point. He's got the demon on the ropes, and the warrior was doing just fine, albeit somewhat worse off than he started. "You should've surrendered when you had the chance, demon," Tabor threatens as he pick up his fallen weapon and slowly makes his way towards his opponent, "Otherwise you might've lived to see another day. Oh well, at least You'll be sent to where you belong: In Hell!" Tabor charges forward to finish off the demon, but it appears as if his target had one last trick up its sleeve.
The demon suddenly launches a barrage of different attacks, all heading towards the namekian. He couldn't believe that the demon had this much energy left in it, and that it could launch all of it at the same time. Tabor's energy was spent, and he couldn't do anything about except rely on his shield that he created earlier. The first soundwave hits Tabor, and the shield protects him partially, but is destroyed in the process and plows right into the namekian. The second and third waves hit their mark and tabor's left arm is completely eradicated. The warrior cries out in pain as he now desperately searches for where the demon was, only to see nothing. He couldn't even sense him anymore.
Under most circumstances, Tabor would search the area to track down and find the intruder, but in his current condition, it was far too risky. With one last scream, Tabor regrows his missing arm and his ears, but still has chunks of his shoulder missing. This was going to take a while if he's going to get back into shape. Satisfied with his work, Tabor turns back towards the Shrine of Porunga, and though he may be injured, he came here for a reason. Tabor grabs a piece of cloth and puts it into the water nearby, preparing to wash away all of the blood that was sprayed during his little skirmish with the demon. Will he ever meet the demon again? Tabor certainly hopes so: He has some unfinished business with him.
Tabor's barrier is reduced to 20% due to piercing, and he takes 100% total damage from all three incoming attacks. Tabor uses Regeneration to heal 60% damage and regrow his limbs. He can't find Sesame, and gives up his pursuit. Exiting the Thread unless interrupted.
Sesame fired his blasts as Tabor rushed forward. But that left him open to his attacks. Despite the power of his attack he fired the three sets of attacks. They were able to slam into Tabor. He broke through Tabor's shield with the first attack and the other two slammed into Tabor's left arm blasting it away clean off. By that point though Sesame was under water hiding himself. He didn't see Tabor regenerate. Right now he waited trying to see what would happen. He waited down their for as long as his breath could hold, a good five minutes before he came surfacing back up. He coughed out and glanced around. He didn't see Tabor. He must of left. After not being able to find him. Sesame pulled himself up coughing even more water out. He managed to survive. He had underestimated the strength warriors on this planet. He had assumed they were all not that powerful but it seemed Tabor survived his strongest assault and he left him on the verge of death. Sesame dragged himself away from the shrine trying to find a spot he could rest and patch himself up. While this battle had not gone in his favor, he'd be more prepared to fight the Namekians if he needed too.
