Auber thought that taking a stroll through the Saiba Wastes was the most irritating, and somehow boring experience he has ever suffered in his entire life. But by far if this didn't redefine that meaning in a different way.
Whereas the Saiyan was exasperated and irked with the Wasteland, the Destron-filled crags of this ruined metropolis got on Auber's nerves in an entirely unalike manner. They felt dangerous, and it gave him an unease he has rarely felt. It was like the echo of his days in the more active parts of the war.
You never knew what sort of ambush was waiting at the end of that corner.
He shook his head in agitation, choosing to make his way forwards. He had originally come here, in the hopes of finding some stray Tuffle troops that got too comfortable for their own good, and cause some trouble for the enemy.
The war was on pause. Not over, after all.
But he still needed to keep his own guard up. While his power easily dwards the common grunt, and he could take an entire platoon if he was careful, the other side still held heavy hitters. Besides, he still wondered what other threats besides the Tuffles inhabited these derelict buildings.
And who knows? Perhaps another came here looking to do the same thing as he did.

This was far from the first time Cheri had been to the Ruined Metropolis. Indeed, it wasn’t too long ago when she’d fought two saiyans there... and that was exactly why she’d returned. You see, scouters are remarkably impressive pieces of technology, not simply for detecting power levels and in terms of communication, but also in storing battle data. And, during that fight, Vennel had smashed Cheri’s scouter into her eye. While she’d gotten a new one, for someone of her station she didn’t even need to ask, she saw value in the battle data that scouter would have collected before its screen was shattered. So she returned with a new scouter to try to find the memory core and scraps of the old one. She'd been jumping from rooftop to rooftop, trusting her low mass to prevent her from falling through any of the dilapidated ceilings.
Of course, she knew to be careful in a place like this, for it was a hotspot of destron, saibabeasts and saiyans. She knew to always be on guard, and to always be prepared for a scuffle. After all, you never knew what sort of ambush was waiting at the end of that corner.
Fortunately, her scouter wasn’t picking up any major power signatures, only some distant saibabeasts eating each other. And surely that meant that nothing was there! Right?
Totally forgot I converted my PL. Cheri is entering with 15,000PL. Entering with a Scouter and Weights.
If it comes to a proper fight, her Desperation is about as strong as your Oozaru.
Auber's own senses did not fail him like it might have a certain Tuffle general in the same location. He picked up her power nearby, not too far from where he was at. Ducking into cover behind a wall, the Saiyan mulled over his options.
The Tuffle's power dwarfed his own base power, that's for sure. But perhaps with the Oozaru, he could turn the tides even. His own eyes narrowed as he studied the power, exploring these abandoned ruins, for what purpose? Scavenging for technology to get a leg up over the Saiyans?
Prepostorous. The Tuffle didn't need to scavenge technology, they made it. Was it just a patrol, mayhaps? Regardless, Auber could feel the Saiyan impulse in him beat with anticipation, this would surely be an excellent fight. His lips twitched upwards, before eventually coming to a smile.
Backflipping into the abandoned building with grace, Auber made sure to stick to the shadows within as he prepared his next move. It would only take minutes after all.
The first sign the Tuffle might see something is wrong is when rumblings began to emanate from the building nearby.
He'd leave her little time however, before the massive head of an ape burst from the ruined construction, jaws wide and racing towards her like some monster in a horror movie. He had tapped into his inner beast.
Now he would make sure to crush this Tuffle.
The jaws did not remain idle for long, as a red, lightly-crimson energy began to emanate from the ape's mouth, followed by the Oozaru shooting a sudden vortex of the same colour, forming into a sphere that dashed furiously at the Tuffle.
Transformed into Oozaru(x5)!

First, the buildings trembled. Then, the floor. Then, the air itself shivered and moved, despite there not being anything to move it. Was there a saiyan here? No, the scouter was quite adamant that there wasn’t. A destronquake, then? Possibly, but she wasn’t transformed enough to trigger it, and it had been too soon since the last one.
It was soon after that thought that a giant Great Ape head smashed out from an old building, turning it to rubble in the same motion. Already it raced towards her, its speed not hindered but rather empowered by its new size and power. Cheri had been ambushed many times before, but never before had the ambusher failed even the basic task of having a readable ki signature. Still, she’d trained herself for situations like this, and her immediate response was almost automatic: the adrenaline flowed instantly and, only a few seconds later, her power would begin to ramp up. When it had done its job, her Power Level would have been twice that as it was when Auber last sensed her energy.
”Oh, hello. Apologies, but the auditions for the role of ‘useless clown’ are in the next city over.”
As Auber made his attack, Cheri simply pressed a few buttons. Before his red ki sphere attack smashed into her, Cheri simply pressed the last button and disappeared, immediately reappearing in a similar place to where she was before, but now behind the Great Ape.
”I don’t suppose you’re here to get your arse beaten, either, but it’s a bit too late for that!”
A sleek blaster formed over Cheri’s left arm from her programmable matter, intricate and fast-moving nanotechnology. She brought her left hand up, aimed it, and shot a pink blast of energy between its eyes. The beam would be pink, and not truly a beam at all, but it moved so quickly— indeed, faster than any eye could track— that dodging simply was not a feasible solution.
Cheri transforms with Desperation, bringing her new Power Level to 30,000. She avoids Starless Globe (12,500PL) with Short-Range Teleport (15,000, Evasive)! Then she uses a Lightspeed Shot against you. It has 9,000PL and is Homing!
