Zerori's Thread PL: 5,000 Zriracha is not present
Honestly, after finally recovering enough with that pathetic loss under her belt, Zerori was raring and ready to go again. Never mind that she was covered in bandages and looking less like a girl and more like a mummy on the run. Healing wasn’t really a Demon thing but they were pretty tough and given Zerori had Saiyan genes-? She HAD to be tougher than most. After dealing with the usual admonitions from her mother and making sure to meet back up with Ise at a later time - and under better circumstances - Zerori was off to actually hammer out her skills ‘The Saiyan Way’.
At least, that’s what Zerori hoped she was doing. Stalking around the lower-maintained locals of Vegeta Region, Zerori didn’t like the arrogant looks she was receiving from people that should have more or less been like kin to her. It’s… not much different than home, but at least we hit each other because we liked to… Zerori felt like some of these battles were oddly personal and didn’t really get that. It was all about having fun, right?
She huffed through her nose, frustration taking hold and coping in the only way she cared to…
Climbing the height of a sign that read ‘Do Not Climb on the Sign’, Zerori balanced herself on the top and made waves, “HEY! First one to challenge me to a fight to a shiny new dagger! Demon Special! I’ll even thrown in some cool armor!” She announced, grinning all the while she was - potentially - scamming them. The daggers would be cool, but the armors… eh… she’s still working on that.

The last time Cheri had tried the ‘May’ persona and disguise to ‘integrate’ into saiyan society, it went rather well or rather not or somewhere in between; that was the problem with liquid time. But, assuming it went in a particular way, and things tended to do that, then it was either good enough to test out again or bad enough to need to improve it until it was good enough.
‘May’ was a rather short ‘saiyan’, as tall as Cheri at one metre. The holographic and illusory disguises she’s had set up assisted in this regard, for she looked younger than she truly was to help justify her short size as a saiyan. As expected of the saiyan phenotype, her hair and eyes were black and she had a fake saiyan tale acting as the belt of her saiyan-grade armour.
She was moving around Tarbel Village, once again, primarily because it was loosely populated enough that, if her identity were revealed, she could easily enough escape into the wilderness. This was, even now, a test, just to see if it would work for longer periods. Cheri would go about the streets, attempting to pass as much as a saiyan as she could, occasionally ordering food or whatnot. She only ordered food once. Saiyans only had one food size, and it was greater than what a tuffle could feasibly manage. Never again.
And that was until, suddenly, some rather odd-looking saiyan was at the top of what was, in context, an humorously-labelled sign, shouting. Cheri looked around, suddenly stressed to think that there was some strange tradition she had no idea about. Turns out, though, that no one was taking the bait, and they were all looking at her like she was some dumb shout-y kid in their otherwise peaceful town.
After some thought… this could be useful.
‘May’ made herself known with a flaring ki. As far as anyone could see, this was just another dumb kid!
”I don’t need either of those things, but I’mma beat you up anyway!”
It caused Cheri actual, physical pain to be as stupid as a saiyan. But, hey, maybe this could be useful...

This wasn’t going well… Zerori could feel the eyes of the other Saiyans on her and terrifyingly enough NONE of them were looking even the slightest bit interested in fighting her. She swallowed down the shame, the awkward silence that stretched on for just a few seconds too long, only giving way to the sudden call of someone in the crowd. Looking down at them as they approached, Zerori cocked her head to the side in surprise. She, uh… doesn’t look that strong. Yet what Zerori wouldn’t notice was that quite a few of the heckler Saiyans from before were backing away at the flare of power the girl gave.
Ignorant to the energy, Zerori gave a shrug and hopped down - a generous amount of space between them for the two to face off. The hybrid scoffed at the girl’s claim, retorting back, “Well, that’s too bad because you’re gonna get them anyway-!”
. . .
“-IF YOU WIN!” Nailed it. She shook off the weird vibes she was feeling and fell back into a stance, counting to three before she kicked off with a grunt, “Names Zerori, by the way!” She interjected with a grin, aiming a punch right in between the girl’s nose. She’d attempt to follow it up with a hop back and bright red blast thrown in her face.

”Well!” “That’s too bad!” “Because I probably won’t find all that much of a use for them!”
A dagger, after all, was a deceitful weapon; dishonourable. And if it was a demonic dagger then, dang, it’s probably all about stabbing people in the back! Cheri was constantly mindful of what ‘May’ would have thought, to the point that her ‘saiyan’ character was remarkably more saiyan than most actual saiyans. Acting: look it up.
At least this one was actually telling her their name before the fight had even begun. ”I’m May! It rhymes with… filet!” Cheri acted out a very convincing distracted hungry look as May thought about a filet cut of meat and Cheri thought about May thinking about that.
Cheri ‘blocked’ by punching Zerori’s punch. ”Ooh, a ki blast! Let me show you my own!” She really hoped she was nailing the overactive young saiyan vibe. And, like an overactive young saiyan, she wasn’t going to hold back, for if anyone there could sense ki, and she did hold back, they’d be able to sense precisely that. Suspicious indeed! (Besides, ‘May’ didn’t have a scouter, and had no idea the strength of her opponent.)
It took some difficulty, as Cheri usually hired these techniques with technological assistance, but the struggle would only help to sell her inexperience. She quickly formed a pink ball of ki, and as soon as it was thrown, it moved ridiculously fast, moving throw Zerori’s red blast as if it was nothing and continuing on its way, straight at the oni’s face! “KaBAM!”

Oh, that’s not bad! Wait, shit! Don’t take pointers from some kid! Zerori admonished herself, caught off guard by the B+ retort that she found herself unwittingly impressed by. Her name was actually really fucking cool, too - making Zerori distractedly wonder what she was named after. Her father picked it out, after all! When May had blocked their punch… with a punch of their own, Zerori was once again impressed by how creative they were, sweating. Who is this kid?!
Before she had even a CLUE as to what was going on, May had announced her own blast and had thrown it toward her red one - absolutely obliterating it. With a cry of pain, Zerori was thrown back by the sheer force of the blast and skidded along the ground at least TEN FEET before she stopped. The sound of something sizzling, as well as the smell of burnt hair, permeated the area.
For a solid moment, Zerori didn’t move - knocked out maybe? Luckily, she just needed a minute to gather herself before she gave a groan and started to lean up from the ground. Burns plainly visible, the hybrid wince as she touched her face, “O-OW, DaMN!” Whatever the fuck that was it hurt like a son of a bitch and Zerori held her face as she got to her feet. “How the hell do you pack such a punch, kid?! And really? ‘KaBAM’?” Zerori made air quotations in mocking.
While it appeared as if she was unaffected and putting on a tough show, on the inside Zerori was impressed and terrified! At least the last lady looked crazy strong!
It was her turn, however, and fear of failure aside - Zerori wasn’t going to let this go easily. Holding her hand into a fist, Zerori rushed at May, “You gotta put more UMPH into it, like THIS!” And with a swing of her arm, Zerori ignited a powerful dark spell from her fist right as she attempted to swing at May’s cheek with a right hook.

There appears to have been a slight miscalculation of the circumstances. Look, she didn’t have a scouter, she didn’t know how powerful this kid was, and holding back would have been suspicious anyway. In the circumstances, it was just about the safest thing she could have done. ”Iunno. I eat my breakfast good?” May seemed a bit hurt, socially, at the insult to her ‘kaBAM’. Cheri didn’t care, though. ”... I thought it was cool.”
‘May’ took the opportunity to jump up a bit, letting go of some nerves and, by all appearances, trying to work through and ignore Zerori’s dismissal of her catchphrase. ”I know how it feels to be weaker than your opponent, so how ‘bout—” Zerori rushed towards ‘May’ and came in for a powerful blow wrapped in dark energies, but ‘May’ disappeared and reappeared behind her so fast it may as well have been teleportation, ”— you just unleash the Oozaru already? That’d make it fair! Or, like, if your tail’s outta whack, I could put on some heavy weights and we can try that? Either way, we could maybe go somewhere where it's not so bad to smash everything.”
May was hoping the two could get through an engaging fight! Cheri was hoping that she’d win while enraging the ‘saiyan’ as much as she could.

With all her power shucked into this amalgam of energy and magic, Zerori could feel the weight of it as she swung forward - never taking her eye off May as she came in… only to hit nothing! With a cry of surprise and shock, Zerori stumbled forward - the entire collection of magic lost to the ether. Perhaps it might have been for the best, given how chaotic the power was and how it could have recoiled back on her but now Zerori was left drained and skidding to a stop as she turned to glare at May. Her anger was only tempered by the odd demand for her to turn into an Oo-zuru, which didn’t compute in Zerori’s head at all.
Did… Did mom tell me that was something I could do? It certainly didn’t sound familiar! Still, regardless of how irritating May was about trying to get her to get stronger, Zerori was more hung up on the fact that this kid just avoided her strongest attack like NOTHING! Zerori snarled, her hair beginning to move as if on it’s own as her eyes flared a brighter red, “I dunno what the fuck you’re talkin’ about but if it’s power you want-”
Red energy crackled around her just before she rushed at May, “You can HAVE IT!” And with a savage swing of a left hook, Zerori aimed to knock the girl into a stall not far from them - dark energy permeating off of her as she seethed.

”Ooh! Show me, show me!”
May’s eyes brimmed with hope as Zerori seemed to power up, though she no doubt was a bit confused with Zerori— who, despite the red eyes, still appeared to be a saiyan, yet didn’t seem to know what an Oozaru was.
Cheri, on the other hand, was dying a bit inside at the prospect of this red-eyed person, who very possibly wasn't even a saiyan, or at least fully so, was going to get stronger. If she got stronger, this fight was going to get longer, which meant more opportunities for the disguise to fail and more opportunities to, you know, lose. Cheri started to stress out; she’d need to end this soon, wouldn’t she? For, she felt, if she did not end it soon, it would go on for too long. So, she would have to take a risk…
Unable to properly gauge her opponent’s power, Cheri was unprepared for Zerori’s speed and was successfully struck by the left hook! She was knocked into a market stall which half-collapsed to halt her momentum. ”Ooh! Now we’re talking!” ‘May’ got up, smiling wildly, excited by the challenge. ”Let me test out my… special move!”
‘May’ rushed back at Zerori, moving pink energy around her fists. She extended two fingers where the ki concentrated. She shook the fingers and blew on them as they seemed to power up, almost vibrating. She went in for Zerori’s centre of mass and would move her fingers through her armour and into her skin, as if a dagger!
”TWO FINGER… DAGGER!!”
But, alas, illusions were at work: that thing that would stab Zerori was not a few fingers but a dagger, made of programmable matter. And, if it were embedded deep enough, it would release a pink poison into Zerori’s system that would cause havoc across the body!

While it was satisfying to see the girl get knocked into the stall, the issue at hand was that Zerori was getting angrier by the second as May seemed - on a whole - largely unaffected. Once again, Zerori was reminded that she wasn’t able to scent the power that this girl had and, entirely possible, she might have been LEAGUES stronger than her.
But Zerori was beyond caring about the differences in strength, not when she was standing, grinning and now excited to show off her newest attack like it was the best thing in the world. Standing to her full height as May rushed at her, Zerori could see May approach and made to attempt side-stepping her odd ‘dagger’ attack - only for the strain of using her strongest attack to wreak havoc on her legs - unable to move in time as she flinched. With a choked sound of pain, Zerori stumbled backwards with some force as she struggled with the sudden sensation of being stabbed.
She held the center of her chest, falling to one knee. Ugh, what… the fuck is this?! It felt like her body was one fire! Looking up from the ground, Zerori didn’t bother to say a damn thing before diving toward May - any decorum or honor she may have had out the window as she attempted to tackle her to the ground and pull her head back, “It SUCKED!” And thn proceeded to throw her head forward right into May’s forehead. She would continue to attempt doing this, off-setting the pain from the burning sensation in her body as she savagely retaliated.

May was glad: her ultra-cool really-cool no-really-guys-it’s-cool-why-are-you-walking-away-from-me-cool super ultra cool mega technique, the Two Finger Dagger, had worked wonders. Not only did she succeed in getting her stab in but, more importantly, she was able to manage the special extra ability that was massively, really cool, trust me it is! This was the next part in a great battle!
Cheri was glad: the Pink Poison Punisher had worked wonders. Not only did she succeed in sufficiently piercing the target but, more importantly, she was able to inject it far enough into Zerori’s body for the eponymous pink poison to be released at a sufficient depth; which was to say, deep enough to easily and subtly enter the bloodstream. This would be, she hoped, one of the last moves in this masterwork of a ‘battle’.
May was unprepared for Zerori so quickly coming back from the stab with a tackle. The half-saiyan tackled the ‘“‘full-saiyan’”’ to the ground, where her neck was grappled, and May was helpless as Zerori smashed heads with her. In the situation, the only quick way to get out of it was some technology that wasn’t so easily saiyanable, so she’d have to get out a harder, and more painful, way. ”Oh, cool, playfighting, I get it!” On May’s behalf, she was a kid with far more power than a kid ought to have. On Cheri’s behalf, this was just hilarious lmao
May would attempt to reverse the grapple, pushing the oni around so that, ideally, May would be the one on top. From there, May would attack in ways that were excusable for a child, yet Cheri thought would be humiliating: slaps. Just, slaps. It wasn’t even all that forceful.

Zerori was disoriented. She was disoriented and dizzy and angry and all of that culminated in that savage and uncoordinated attack that - in one moment - she was taking the reigns and giving May a taste of her own medicine. Then, in the next, the world was turning over on it’s head and Zerori was soon the one being rolled over and brought ‘under heel’ in a manner of speaking. She snarled up at May as she was pushed to the ground, the action apparently making the pain that surged through her body even WORSE somehow!
“Get the hell off m-OOF!” This girl was sitting on top of her, like it was all just a game, slapping of all things! Head snapping to the left and right with almost comical shock, Zerori would have only been stunned for about three or four of them before she reached for May’s hands and roared, “ENOUGH!” And, ignoring the pain that lanced through her body, tried to buck the girl off and kick her toward another stall.
The destruction of public property was a little mollifying, even if Zerori was losing steam and fast. If she didn’t end this soon, she was going to suffer a humiliating defeat… again. If she could help it, though, she’d suffer through it unconscious!.She just needed a little more time. With a grunt, she summoned some magic - enough to get a spark - and threw a boiling red blast right at May.

Zerori caught May’s hand, which wiped the jovial smile from May’s face. Only a moment later, Cheri was kicked into a market stall! Another market stall, to be clear, and the second one that Zerori had blasted ‘May’ into. However, as before, ‘May’ soon emerged from the wreckage, increasingly glad to be in a fight. This was the saiyan spirit, and it was disgustingly destructive. ”You must really hate these things, huh?”
But then Zerori summoned a red spark of energy! It was pretty cool, looking too, but when Zerori threw it, May simply… disappeared in its path! And reappeared, in the same moment, behind Zerori. It looked like teleportation… and it was teleportation, but, when you’re dealing with fighters this powerful, lots of things that looked like teleportation were just moving really quick. ”Ooh, that was close! Do it again!”
Moments later, May would rush forwards to try to make multiple blows against her opponent: left punch, right punch, left kick, right kick! In the strictest sense, May was simply outpowered here. While, sure, they were close enough to being evenly matched, it was on the outer edge of being evenly matched. And yet Cheri made sure that, with every movement, it seemed that May wasn’t taking this seriously. The more she could humiliate the opponent, the angrier they got. And, the angrier they got, the stupider their decision making.
Cheri uses a Short-Range Teleport (10,000PL, Evasive) to avoid the Blaze Blaster (5,000PL).
Was gonna do something cooler but I joined this thread a few hours before that technique was accepted :(

“I definitely hate SOMETHING right now!” Zerori yelled just before she’d loosed her blast. However, just like before, something ELSE had to go wrong. Watching her for any strange movements, Zerori observed how May literally disappeared her sight. This wasn’t speed or a magic trick! Zerori would know the difference, or so she thought at least… Where the fuck did she go?! Was the million dollar question until Zerori gave a rather girlish screech at the voice that was behind her.
Rushing away, Zerori managed to turn around just before May was upon them again and unleashing a barrage of hits that the hybrid was struggling to keep up with. A particularly strong one caught on her eyebrow as she tried to maneuver around it, “Ugn!” With a grunt of pain, Zerori was forced to respond in the only way she could: She just wished May didn’t TELL her to do it! “Blaze BLASTER!” She yelled, calling out her attack to blow off steam and to try to sound just as cool as May.
Oh no. Did she just admit that May was fucking cool?!
Instead of throwing the damn thing at a distance, though, Zerori was big-brained enough to try it basically point-blank as she threw it right at May’s face.

Zerori definitely hated something… ”Yeah. The market stalls.” May gave the ‘saiyan’ a strange look, like that much was obvious and that Zerori had made a big blunder in missing that, even though it was really May missing out on Zerori’s subtext. Cheri thought that was decently humorous.
May had already dodged out of the way of the Blaze Blaster and, yea, that was pretty fun! But, y’know what’d be even more fun? Trying a cool new thing instead! ”Yeah! We can do a thing where, like…” ‘May’ tried to think to herself about how she’d word this but, as a young Vegetan, didn’t reach any meaningful conclusions. ”Well. Guess I’ll just show ya!”
May started moving her arms around strangely. It wasn’t the sort of way you’d move if you were gathering ki, but possibly it was the way a child would think you’d gather ki… and, all the same, it worked, as ki gathered all throughout the ‘saiyan’! Into the muscles, empowering her and whatever she’d do next, and into her hands, where pink ki gathered. And, so, when Zerori released the Blaze Blaster, May released her own attack, which would soon smash in, through, and out of it… and, most amazingly of all, the two were basically right next to each other when these attacks were fired! "That!"

Wait, what?! No, I hate YO-UGH! Zerori thought, confused and angry and more than a little tired as May seemed to want to try something new even in the midst of Zerori trying to just gain some kind of advantage. Once again, that throb of pain inside of her body had her losing a bit of her focus, breathing heavily as her vision started to haze at the edges. Unfortunately, whatever moment Zerori had to try and gain one over on May was lost in seconds as she did some strange hand movements - practically faster than the eye could see - and before Zerori knew it a brighter blast was impacting her own.
Blinding her, burning her hand that initiated the blast and blowing her backwards all in the span of a second and some change. This time, Zerori didn’t crash into a stall. No, it was the unfortunate sign that Zerori had first stood upon that was the next victim to her fight - crashing through it and leaving a notable hole through it as she collapsed on the ground in a crumbled mess.
With a pained groan, grimacing as she struggled to open her eyes, Zerori was VERY quickly realizing she was in trouble. Her power was waning, she couldn’t see no matter how many times she rubbed at her eyes and she could feel… something grate at her. As if she was feeling the weight of something upon her shoulders. “Tch,” With a shake of her head, Zerori weakly scrambled back to her feet before trying to act tough, “Is tha-… that all y’got?” Audibly slurring her words might have ruined the effect, though. Would she even have the power to use her best attack?
As it stood, it really didn’t look like it. Still, lowered herself into a shaky stance, unwilling to give up until she was OUT.
