Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 77: Razor vs. Metal Sonic
Date: August 3rd, 2004.
Locos Docos: "The recurring nightmaric prophecy is becoming longer, I can understand it rather clearly... and I can actually wake up when it's sunny out instead of night! ...Though I receive pains for each time I'm one step closer to fulfilling it though."
Deloth pats Gibby.
Locos Docos: "Like ...in the head... and in the neck. And in the Gibby."
Deloth: "Do you make coffee, Gibby?"
Gibby: "...I MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY! ISN'T THAT ENOUGH FOR YOU PEOPLE? GOD!"
Locos Docos: "No."
Gibby: "I TRY AND TRY. BUT YOU SPIT ME OUT."
Deloth: "Just wondering..."
Gibby: "WELL I'VE HAD IT! NO MORE!"
Deloth slaps Gibby.
Locos Docos: "Lemme guess..."
Deloth: "Snap out of it."
Gibby: "Thank you. I needed that."
Deloth: "No problem."
Locos Docos: "You're gonna bring your friends... a little bit of thunder... and a little bit of lighting to, huh?"
Aribar snaps to attention at hearing Locos...
Locos Docos: "The head, the neck, and the Gibby."
Gibby: "... I'M NOT A BODY PART!!! ...But if I was... I'd be the funny bone!"
Locos Docos: "You are attached to me. You bring me pain in the most unknown area in the body. And it comes from you."
Gibby: "... thanks?"
Locos Docos: "The shins!"
Gibby: "Oh yeah." *He kicks Locos in the shins.*
Locos Docos pours polisher on Gibby's head for kicking him in the shins.
Locos Docos: "Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyyyeeaahhh nyyyyeeeaaaahhhhh!"
Deloth: *He hands Gibby a towel.*
Gibby: "Thank you..." *He wipes his head.*
Locos Docos: "At least his head will shine when he wipes it."
Gibby then towel whips Locos.
Locos Docos: "Yeouch!"
Gibby: "MWA HA HA."
Locos Docos punts Gibby to the other side of the room for payback.
Nojiri hands Gibby a shelf. >.>
Gibby lands on his shelf. ahh... peace...
Locos Docos: "Bah... at least you ain't here kicking me in the Goobers again."
Aribar finishes his... 'work of art'... He puts a HORRIBLE picture of all the Questers on Gibby's shelf. "Bah... It would have looked better if I had both my arms."
Locos Docos: "I *am* the mastah. And I love... Yoshi Cookie!"
Aribar: "Hey Locos... What do you think of this drawing?" *A picture of all the Questers... In stick figure form... Is sitting on Gibby's shelf.*
Locos Docos: "Uhhh... nice."
Aribar: "You really think so?!"
Locos Docos: "Not really."
Aribar: "... Oh... BOLT!" *He burns up his drawing.*
???: "All Questers report to the big room. Mewtwo is desirous of your attention."
Nick Caligo (GM): That's a strange voice... never heard that one on the PA before, eh?
Deloth heads to the Big Room.
Aribar shuffles off to the Big Room, now depressed.
Locos Docos quizzically puts away the bananas and goes to the Big Room as instructed.
Razor goes... wondering what's going on.
Deloth: "I wonder what Mewtwo wants?"
Mewtwo: "Questers, we have a new fighter here who wants to test his abilities against you."
Deloth: "Who is he?"
Mewtwo: "I'd like a volunteer, please."
Locos Docos enters and hears it.
Aribar looks up.
Razor stands up.
Locos Docos: "...Who is this?"
Mewtwo: "He just spoke over the PA."
Razor: "Who is that?"
Mewtwo: "He wants it to be a surprise."
Deloth: "Where do we meet him?" *He pulls out his katana.*
Aribar: "... Why are you pulling out your sword?"
Locos Docos: "...More than one of us at once??"
Razor blinks a few times. "If he wishes to challenge one of us... I volunteer."
Mewtwo: "No, just one."
Locos Docos: "Oh..."
Deloth: "Just a habit, I guess."
Locos Docos: "I'm not good with one-on-one duels."
Mewtwo: "Anyone at all?"
Metal Man: "Me?"
Razor folds his arms across his chest.
Locos Docos: "Just select one so we can watch!"
Mewtwo: *sigh.* "Very well. Razor."
Razor chuckles. "If you don't want me to do it, Metal is more than welcome to."
Mewtwo: "But remember that you may not fly whatsoever during this battle. Your wings must be exclusively used for jumping ability."
Razor raises an eyebrow. "Jumping?" He shrugs. "Alright..."
Locos Docos: "Now let's go and watch!"
Deloth: "Where's it happening?"
Mewtwo: "The arena, of course. This shall be shown before an audience."
Deloth heads to the arena, then.
Aribar heads towards the arena, still dragging his feet.
Razor cracks his knuckles. "Lead the way."
Garrick steps into the big room. "...what I miss?"
Deloth: "I wonder who this guy is..." *He grabs Garrick as he heads to the arena.*
Garrick: "Hey... HEY! Let go of me!"
Nick Caligo (GM): Minutes later...
Garrick shakes Deloth off of him and heads for the arena is well, still clueless of what's going on.
Deloth has taken a seat.
Lakitu: "...And gentlemen!!"
Deloth keeps his katana out.
Lakitu: "It's a pleasure to have you all here in the Melee Stadium tonight! We've got a real beauty of a fight for you today!"
Garrick: "Would somebody PLEASE tell me what we... oh. Who's fighting?"
Aribar sits faaaar away from Deloth... He also has ear plugs in his ears.
Garrick sits down in his own chair and watches.
Lakitu: "A first-timer in the arena, we have RAZOR!! A nobody from some random universe."
Gibby stands on top of Ari as he watches.
Nick Caligo (GM): One person in the audience claps.
Locos Docos hovers above one of the seats, cross-legged.
Razor shakes his head slowly as he steps in. "Yeah... you're all wonderful..." .oO(What a bunch of lamers...)
Lakitu: "Aaaaand over here, the master of disaster, the overlord of all things metal... METAL SONIC MARK II!"
Gibby: "Oooooh... THIS should be good."
Nick Caligo (GM): The spotlights all shine down on a six foot tall robotic hedgehog... he looks nothing like the previous versions.
Razor chuckles softly as he flips out his blades. "How fitting..."
Locos Docos: "..."
Garrick: "...would somebody PLEASE tell me why he's fighting that guy ALONE?"
Locos Docos: "Because it's a duel, ya dunce."
Deloth: "Whoa, big guy..."
Garrick: "Well, he's going to get himself killed."
Deloth wonders if he can scan Metal Sonic.
Nick Caligo (GM): His armor is more filled in and... armor-like. His shoes are bigger, and his head looks more like a cross between a knight's helmet and Sonic's head with red eyes shining from behind the darkness inside it. There's no way this guy could pass off as Sonic, ever, if only because he's in some sort of proportion.
Gibby: "I wish I brought some food..."
Razor slides his right foot back, slowly lifting his hands into a fighting position. His blades are angled downward. His green and black Power Suit gleams slightly in the arena lights.
Nick Caligo (GM): The audience cheers like crazy.
Deloth pulls out his Dex.
Nick Caligo (GM): The two fighters would find themselves in Hyrule Temple, high above Hyrule Castle.
Deloth attempts to scan Metal Sonic.
Locos Docos: "...I believe I encountered him in one of my earlier travels to the Time Dimension."
Nick Caligo (GM): Deloth finds himself unable to do so.
Gibby stands next to Deloth. "What's up? He any good?"
Deloth puts his Dex back. "Interference..."
Garrick: "I've heard a few things about him, though I'm not sure they're true. He's supposed to be tough."
Nick Caligo (GM): The robot throws an arm out to the side and a long, thin razorblade with a white stripe near the base unfolds from his arm. His other holds a large-ish shield.
Locos Docos: "That is pointless, dragon. This skybox is made of a polytanium-purite; the frequency isn't able to get to it."
Deloth: "I can't scan him." *sighs.*
Metal Sonic: "Come, human!"
Gibby: "He LOOKS tough...:"
Nick Caligo (GM): It'll take some time just to get to him.
Locos Docos: "He'd do best to face this foe with prejudice and caution at once. He has some powerful strikes."
Razor smirks and reaches behind him slowly. "You might like this... I just got a recording of this on a previous mission." He pulls out a small tape recorder with... rather large speakers. He cranks up the volume and shrugs his shoulders to cover his ears before hitting play. "WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE! A YELLOW SUBMARINE! A YELLOW SUBMARINE!!!"
Gibby: "Well if he's ANYTHING like the previous Metal Sonics, Razor has his hands full."
Deloth: "AUGH! THAT SONG!"
Gibby: "NOT AGAIN!"
Deloth covers his ears.
Gibby hides behind Deloth.
Garrick: "...what the crap..."
Metal Sonic: "..." Razor gets the feeling it's raising an eyebrow beneath its armor.
Nick Caligo (GM): Nope. No damage.
Metal Sonic: "And just what is that supposed to do?"
Razor grumbles. "Well that worked..." He tosses the recorder behind him and down... down... down...
Garrick: "...he's screwed."
Bird that happens to be flying by at the time: "Squack... squack... BRAAAAH!!" *SMACK*
Razor: "Ummm... yeah... that was the wrong tape..."
Gibby: "Thank god..."
Razor flips his blades back out and prepares for Metal Sonic's counter-assault.
Metal Sonic: "Fool. Taste missiles!" His shoulders pop open and two missiles blast forth, converging upon Razor from both sides.
Deloth: "Ooh, that's gonna leave a mark."
Nick Caligo (GM): *CRITICAL HIT* *Hit.*
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor takes more damage. % damage, in fact.
Locos Docos: "!" *...* "This is an actual Stadium battle, and not life!?"
Deloth: "I guess so."
Razor stumbles back. "Alright then..." His counter goes up to 22 percent.
Deloth: "Probably a good thing too, since otherwise Razor would be a small pile of pulp."
Nick Caligo (GM): He's in no danger of falling off the edge. Metal Sonic puts his shield up and holds his sword back... MAN he's got some punch.
Locos Docos: "Even I had trouble fighting him... this would be deja vu for him if he can recall any kinds of battles."
Razor growls and steps forward, flipping his blades over his head. "Let's see how you like this! Annihilate!" He slashes downward with both blades at once, sending two waves of green crackling energy zipping at Metal Sonic.
Nick Caligo (GM): The first hits the robot in the shoulder, damaging him a bit. The second pelts against his shield.
Metal Sonic: "Gah!" 44% damage is shown on his counter. "You're tougher than you look, human. Perhaps it's time to stop playing around..."
Razor flips his blades back around and stands back upright, dancing nimbly from foot to foot.
Locos Docos yawns backwards and does a loop while still hovering. "This won't be interesting unless he uses his trump card."
Gibby: "Trump card?"
Locos Docos: "...I didn't say anything."
Deloth: "His Spin Dash?"
Locos Docos: "..."
Razor: "Bring it on..."
Garrick: "...why don't we just watch the match, huh?"
Deloth: "Right, I'll shut up."
Gibby shrugs, and goes back to watching Razor.
Nick Caligo (GM): He dashes forward and jumps up over the platform across the pit from Razor... higher than he should be able to... he performs a flip, and then SLAMS onto the platform on Razor's side, sending a huge shockwave at him through the ground.
Locos Docos: "Is it me, or is our talking making the action look tremendously slow?"
Razor jumps up into the air, easily avoiding the shockwave before dropping down next to him.
Nick Caligo (GM): Success. Razor avoids all damage. However, he capitalizes on Razor's approaching jump by slashing at him while he's in mid-air.
Locos Docos: "Now that I didn't see coming."
Lakitu: "OH and Razor leaps RIGHT into Metal Sonic's blade!"
Nick Caligo (GM): The first is just damage. The second is sonic damage; armor doesn't work against it.
Razor's counter goes up to 29. He grunts and drops back a bit, but he's still pretty close. His right blade glows a deep violet color before he rushes in. "You call that a blade? Eat this... Warlock Punch!" He lunges in with his right blade, stabbing at him before twisting himself to the right, slashing with the left blade at his face.
Locos Docos begins to doze off... slightly.
Metal Sonic: "Hmph." He blocks the Warlock Punch with his shield; Razor's second attack clashes against his blade before he tries to stab Razor right back and grab him by the throat with his other hand.
Gibby: "Man... the Warlock Punch failed."
Nick Caligo (GM): And for the grapple touch attack...
Locos Docos: "He forgot that this is Metal Sonic MK II, not a robot created by Wily."
Gibby: "If Razor can't beat him, who can?"
Garrick: "...maybe me?"
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor avoids being grabbed, at any rate.
Razor easily ducks under the poor strike and RIPOSTES just as he is grabbed at. He lunges upwards, sending a wave of purple energy slamming into Metal Sonic as a counter attack.
Gibby: "Yeah... if you're lucky, and he's dead already."
Garrick: "But then again, I see no reason to fight down there in the arena. I'd rather be out in a struggle for my own life against Smithy."
Locos Docos dozes off more... about to sleep.
Nick Caligo (GM): Thankfully for Razor, the attack hit. He's knocked back a little more, damaged for... 3%.
Razor uses the momentum of that slash to boost himself into the air a bit. "Use what works, I say!" His blades crackle with emerald energy again before he slashes them in the air, sending another pair of green waves at Metal Sonic before he lands in a crouched position.
Gibby nudges Locos. "WAKE UP!"
Locos Docos begins to have a bubble coming out of his nose, still hovering, but nodding from time to time.
Garrick: "He just criticaled on him..."
Nick Caligo (GM): He parries both hits.
Gibby rolls his eyes. "Whatever..."
Razor grunts softly. "I see you've learned... alright then... eat fire!" He leans forward, launching a cone of searing flames from his glowing blade. Reflex it. Failed!
Nick Caligo (GM): *FAIL* He's caught off guard and BURNINATED. His damage goes up by a whooping 30%.
Gibby: "GO RAZOR!"
Razor looks up towards the burning Metal Sonic and motions for him to come with his left hand.
Locos Docos snorts loudly as he wakes up and the bubble pops. "What'd I miss?"
Gibby: "Razor just FRIED Metal Sonic."
Garrick: "Yeah, but one lucky hit isn't going to win the match for him."
Nick Caligo (GM): He pulls back out of the cone of fire, still in flames.
Metal Sonic: "Dyaahh!! You like to play with fire? Well, fight fire WITH fire, I always say! HA!!" He starts into a dash, going... invisible? Oh crap! He reappears RIGHT in front of Razor with that stab.
Gibby: "It's a glimmer of hope... !!!"
Garrick: "And it looks like that glimmer just got snuffed out by a very large invisible sword."
Razor: *Scene freeze! Bullet time!*
Locos Docos: "This is his more... boring attack. He's holding back... I know it. This... has got be... lame."
Nick Caligo (GM): *SLASH.* More damage to Raze.
Razor s counter runs up to 41%.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic follows through with his slash, spinning and trying to take Razor's legs out from under him. *SLASH* Razor is tripped!
Nick Caligo (GM): He finishes with one last spin and a jump before slamming his blade down for another shockwave slash.
Deloth: "Razor's getting severely whipped."
Razor: 77% LUCKY 7s!
Locos Docos: "Two turns... That's when the trump card will be used."
Gibby: "Man... what a beating..."
Razor is sent careening by the shockwave slash. He skids back for a bit before using the momentum to flip himself back onto his feet.
Metal Sonic: "Your finesse leaves something to be desired, human."
Razor growls. "If you say so." *He is still poised on his hands, not having flipped onto his feet quite yet. He springs backwards, flipping his arms up as he does so, sending a crushing double Phasebolt at Metal Sonic.*
Locos Docos: "...one attack left for Razor until trump is pulled."
Deloth: "What is that trump?"
Nick Caligo (GM): *SUCCESS* He ducks, avoiding the brunt of the attack.
Deloth pulls out a bag of popcorn kernels and blows a bit of fire on it.
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor deals 11% damage to him.
Deloth opens the bag and starts munching on the popcorn. He passes the bag to Locos.
Locos Docos: "Pass."
Gibby goes for some popcorn.
Deloth gives Gibby the bag.
Razor lands on his feet, after flipping backwards, and in an instant springs directly at Metal Sonic, holding his blades together as he slashes them vertically at Metal Sonic's head from midair in a single Smash attack.
Deloth: "Don't eat it all."
Gibby eats most of it.
Nick Caligo (GM): *SMASH.* Right when he's getting up, Razor SMASHES him back down for 16% damage. He takes an extra 6%. He's at 110% damage.
Locos Docos: "...This is it..."
Deloth leans forward.
Locos Docos: "The warm up to his grand finale."
Metal Man: "We find out what happened to Batman after comic number 69?"
Nick Caligo (GM): He doesn't get up all the way. He gets to his knees, but tucks into a ball before SPINDASHING into Razor's shins.
Metal Man: "...Huh... didn't know Metal Sonic visited the stadium..."
Deloth: "I knew it! The Spin Dash!"
Metal Man: "I better look good... I don't want him to tell the other metal people I've been slacking off." *He stands straight and polishes his armor.*
Nick Caligo (GM): Success. Razor jumps his spindash. He runs into the back of little ramp thingy and flies upward, unleashing a set of five spikes at Razor.
Razor flips over the top of him, crouching into a roll before pushing back into his feet and whirls around to see the spikes coming at him...
Locos Docos: "The classic Spin Dash..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor takes a single spike to the shoulder. He lands, facing Razor with his shield up.
Locos Docos: "If Razor doesn't finish him off... the trump card will be quite an explosion of performance!"
Razor stumbles back as the spike nails him. "Gah... okay, that's it... yah!" He lunges in at him, rearing up with his left shoulder facing Metal Sonic. His right blade is down, his left lifted to his right side, glowing purple, point on the pinky side of his hand. He rams it towards Metal Sonic, using that as a pushpoint to kick around with his right side, slashing at his face with his other blade and whirling about in the air. (Warlock Punch followed by a slash.)
Deloth: "WHAT TRUMP CARD?!?!" *He grabs Locos and shakes him.*
Locos Docos: "I can't tell... watch for yourself."
Gibby: "Stop acting all mystical and knowing..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Um... whatever Razor just did, he just blocks it with his shield.
Deloth hands Gibby a soda and a plate of nachos, pulls out a can of soda himself, and watches the fight.
Gibby: "YAY!" *He eats nachos, and drinks soda.*
Nick Caligo (GM): After blocking Razor's attacks, he makes an attempted stabbing. *CRITICAL HIT.*
Locos Docos: "...Hmmm... either this is the warm up orrrr..."
Razor gets smashed hard... he's up to 118%...
Nick Caligo (GM): As Razor goes FLYING backwards, Metal Sonic chases after Razor and leaps into the air, attempting to SMASH him over to that little roofed place on the very left edge of the temple.
Nick Caligo (GM): *SMASH.*
Locos Docos: "...As I thought... he doesn't have it yet."
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor takes damage and...
Nick Caligo (GM): Lands beneath the roof of that little temple thing at the very very left edge of Hyrule Temple. Metal Sonic lands on the platform over the left side of the pit.
Deloth: "Razor, get out of there!"
Nick Caligo (GM): He's in that very dramatic Ninja pose, too.
Deloth takes a sip of soda.
Locos Docos: "If he doesn't do it this time, he might slip and let Razor win."
Razor pushes back up to his feet and growls before launching himself into the air at Metal Sonic. It looks like he's going to ram right into him, but at the last second he shifts his angles, bringing his blades high over his head as he leaps overtop of Metal Sonic, flipping forwards and stabbing them both downwards at this back at once in a SMASH attack.
Nick Caligo (GM): *SMASH.* He receives 16% damage and flies forward... Performing a flip and landing on top of that temple area. He turns around quickly and releases two missiles again. *Doublehit!!* Yet more damage to Razor.
Gibby: "Come on Razor boy!"
Razor goes up to 142% from the measly damage...
Locos Docos: "Wake me up when he starts twitching his left leg..or right." *He goes back to snoring with head nodding and bubble out of nose.*
Razor just grunts as he takes the hits after landing on his feet. A bit of smoke erupts from the explosions of the missiles, and he is seen suddenly leaping out of it, coming up at Metal Sonic through the black clouds. He swings his right blade in an uppercut Warlock Punch before spinning in the air to spike Metal Sonic towards the abyss... if he is hit by the first. If not, he just spins and smacks him forward.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic parries one attack and just sidesteps the other. He slashes at Razor's right side...
Razor is hit... of course... HE hits...
Nick Caligo (GM): Then punches him in the face... *RIPOSTE.*
Razor spins with the slash, stumbling to the side. When the punch comes in, though, he seizes the opportunity. He brings his left blade upward, parrying the clumsy blow and throwing Metal Sonic a bit off balance before he slashes horizontally at the air in front of him, sending a wave of energy at his exposed gut.
Nick Caligo (GM): *Hit.* Razor doesn't damage him, though. He's knocked back a little, but goes with it, performing a backflip and falling off the side of the temple. He lands below it, looking up and waiting.
Locos Docos snores very annoyingly loud.
Razor turns around and backflips and drops down on the other side of the Gazebo. He drops down towards the ground and holds his blades up above him. As he lands, he slashes downward, sending the waves tearing along the ground at Metal Sonic. That's better.
Nick Caligo (GM): Hit and CRITICAL HIT. 21% damage. He's taken to 131% damage and thrown WAY backwards. He performs a few somersaults, righting himself... or trying to... But that's not quite enough to get him back. He unfolds himself into his full stature and faaaalllls... But Razor doesn't hear or see a *POOM.*
Garrick: "...well, that's odd."
Locos Docos wakes up.
Nick Caligo (GM): The audience would see him landing way beneath the "Safe gap."
Locos Docos: "What's happened?"
Razor blinks a few times. "Damn, he saved himself!" His eyes NOW turn towards the "Safe gap."
Nick Caligo (GM): He stands and waits. Of course, Razor has no idea where he is.
Locos Docos: "...He's bidding his time... to do it... at least he better."
Garrick: "He should if he wants to win. ...and what is this 'It' you keep going on about?"
Locos Docos: "He will if he desires it."
Razor grunts softly. "Where did he go though..." He can't see down below... but it's not hard to guess... if he didn't land up here... and he didn't go boom... he's gotta be down THERE somewhere. He runs along the top, heading towards the "Cavern gap" in the middle of the arena.
Garrick: "Would you stop acting like such the mysterious unknown person and just TELL us what this 'Trump card' of his is?"
Nick Caligo (GM): *SHOOP!* Razor finds himself immediately assaulted by Metal Sonic blasting up and somersaulting like a ... hedgehog... on crack. Five spines shoot at him. One hit. He spins around a few times and lands with another shockwave slam.
Razor grunts as the spike tings off his armor. He flips about, dodging all of the others...
Locos Docos: "It's self explanatory; once either legs begin to twitch, it'll show itself."
Nick Caligo (GM): Success. Razor jumps, avoiding the shockwave, but is faced again by a double missile barrage. *CRITICAL HIT.*
Razor then lands in a handspring and pushes himself forward, flipping towards him. One missile manages to catch him HARD on the way though.
Nick Caligo (GM): The second smashes into the ground behind him.
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor flies baaaack...
Razor lands on his hands beneath the roof of the Gazebo. He flips backwards and back to his feet...
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic finishes by tapping his blade-arm's finger to his forehead, beginning to charge a spark of energy...
Garrick: "Come on, Raze, you made it this far..."
Razor leaps forward and towards the other side of the short barrier next to the Gazebo. He crosses his arms in the air, lifting his blades up to his shoulders. He lines up the shot and swipes the blades in an X pattern in the air, sending two waves at Metal Sonic from midair before Razor lands safely on the other side of the barrier.
Locos Docos: "I have half a mind to go down there and interfere with the match so MS will do it."
Nick Caligo (GM): Two hits by Razor.
Locos Docos: "The other half wants popcorn."
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic promptly loses his charge, getting thrown waaay back over to the other side.
Garrick: "Locos, do me a favor. Either tell us what this stupid move Metal Sonic has is, or just shut up."
Nick Caligo (GM): +15% damage. He gets up, shakes himself off, and leaps waaay up to the top of the tower. He attempts to charge up again. At this point Razor can't hit him with RANGED attacks.
Razor gets closer to Metal Sonic... but not to close. He runs all the way to the "Cavern gap" and rather than jump over it to get any closer, he drops down into it, taking cover against the right hand wall.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic continues to charge. The spark grows much larger now.
Locos Docos: "Ooohh... his semi-ultimate move."
Razor pokes his head up... and seeing that attack charging, ducks back down behind cover again. If he can't hit Metal Sonic, then Metal Sonic can't hit him... makes sense, right?
Nick Caligo (GM): He finishes charging and stores the charge, his sword blitzing with electricity. He then LEAPS as far into the air as he can, taking a jump--a double jump! And then he flips and SLAMS down towards the ground, into the mouth of the cavern, unleashing the shockwave slash at Razor once again. This time he's cornered... and surprised. Startling, it is, when a big spikey blue robot drops in on you like that. STILL a success for Razor.
Locos Docos: "This is it, either he has his leg twitch, or he'll lose."
Garrick lets out a big sigh, then leans forward and continues to watch the match.
Razor hops up into the air with the shockwave... but he's not going alone. He pushes off the wall with his feet as he jumps and brings his right hand blade swinging in an uppercut as hard as he can, SMASHing it into Metal Sonic's jaw as he leaps from the cavern gap.
Garrick: "Locos, how do you even KNOW that he has this move?"
Locos Docos: "...That I can't disclose."
Nick Caligo (GM): Too bad that wasn't a crit, but *SMASH!!*
Garrick: "Ha, you DON'T know."
Nick Caligo (GM): Plus an extra bit of damage as he slams into the wall of the cavern mouth. Raze brought him up to 145%.
Razor flips forward once in the air before crouching down. He holds his left hand blade below him, putting all his weight and force behind DRIVING that thing into Metal Sonic's head for Smash #2!
Nick Caligo (GM): *SMASH!* He receives an extra bit of damage from being driven into the ground. The crowd starts cheering. Got another follow up? ... Well?
Razor continues to drop right past and behind Metal Sonic, crouching down farther down in the cavern before springing up and towards him. He thrusts both blades at an upwards angle, aiming to send him right out of the pit, the right one glowing purple with a Warlock Punch.
Nick Caligo (GM): *BASH* *Slash.* From the first slash, he takes as he gets knocked into the wall. The Warlock Punch's wall slam deals even more damage.
Crowd: "RAZOR! RAZOR! RAZOR! RAZOR!"
Nick Caligo (GM): He's up to 172%. Metal Sonic staggers to his feet and approaches Razor with a glare in his red eyes... oh wait, his eyes are ALWAYS glaring... ^^; He makes a left-right slash...
Locos Docos: "...Does staggering count as twitching?"
Nick Caligo (GM): *RIPOSTE.*
Razor slashes at his blade with his left, knocking it aside and opening him up. He brings his right blade slashing vertically in the air, sending another wave slash through the air... but this one aimed at his chin.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic spins... into a stab... the electricity about his blade flares up angrily. *CRITICAL HIT!!!*
Razor ducks down underneath the spinslash... only making him vulnerable to the stabbity death.
Nick Caligo (GM): *ShhhOOM!!!* There's a bright blue EXPLOSION of electricity as he finally releases that charge with MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY.
Razor is gonna be doing a lot of ricocheting in that cavern... yikes...
Nick Caligo (GM): That's *SHZZZZZ!!* Razor hits the right wall, then the left!
Locos Docos: "This is becoming uninteresting now. I'm leaving."
Nick Caligo (GM): Taking 4 extra damage as he lands on the right side of the hole.
Metal Sonic: "Hmph."
Nick Caligo (GM): He jumps up and backflips, landing on the side opposite Razor.
Locos Docos walks out in protest.
Razor pushes himself up into a crouch, growling, his chest heaving. 209.
Nick Caligo (GM): YOWCH.
Metal Sonic: "You're finished!"
Nick Caligo (GM): Well, it WAS a critical hit.
Razor: "Wanna bet?"
Metal Sonic: "Then come at me! Show me!"
Locos Docos aimlessly wonders around the stadium, not giving a care where he's going.
Razor smirks, holding his blade out to the side. It gleams for a moment before he shoots forward across the gap, his form blurring with the speed of his strike. He runs right past Metal Sonic, slashing forward in a smash to his gut as he passes by him. (Picture, kinda like that move Fox and Falco use... not QUITE that fast... but a bit more power to it...)
Nick Caligo (GM): *Smash.* I'm not capitalizing that. Razor hit, but... MAN that's lame. That shouldn't be ABLE to hit. It was just so close to missing... He FLIIIIES backwards... But performs a flip and stabilizes himself, planting his feet firmly on the ground just on the other side of the canopy area. He rushes Razor next, firing missiles again...
Locos Docos stops and leans to the nearest wall, with a foot on the wall and his arms crossed, and eyes closed.
Nick Caligo (GM): One hit. He runs after Razor's flying body, leaps into the air, and just kinda' slashes at him. Vertically, upwards, to knock him upward some more. *Smack!*
Razor: 12 more damage...
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic fllliiiies over the cave mouth. He rushes over to the other side, and waits for Razor...
Razor flips himself towards Metal Sonic, falling face down towards him. He holds his blades out in front of him, and they glow a fierce orange before erupting in a cone of flame... not only to torch MS and hopefully ruin his chance to attack, but give Razor a nice easy landing... kinda like jet engines. The searing flames blast straight down around MS. BURNINATED!
Nick Caligo (GM): He holds up his shield to block it, but I don't think that was a success. Was it? *BURNINATION.* Raze just ruined his meteor smash. Razor's searing flames bring him to 209% damage. He tries to compensate for losing the meteor smash by just giving an upward SMASH. o_O
Nick Caligo (GM): *CRITICAL HIT.* ... Well, aint that somethin'.
Razor: 264% >.<
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor: *ding!*
Garrick: "Going... going..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Razor sooooooaaaaaars into the distance and become a nice shooting star.
Garrick: "...and gong."
Lakitu: "THIS fight's winner is... METAL SONIC!"
Locos Docos hears the match coming to an end.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic raises his blade and it crackles with electricity before flaring up dramatically. Later, in the big room...
Metal Sonic: "I must apologize, human. Though you lost, you fought very well."
Garrick: "Yeah, Raze. That was one hell of a fight."
Locos Docos is in the same position he was outside the stadium.
Metal Man: "Hey Metal Sonic!" *Pulls off helmet and appears headless.*
Locos Docos has a pseudo cigarette in mouth.
Nick Caligo (GM): He puts forth a clawed hand, offering a shake. "Well done. If this is what my future opponents are like, I must practice."
Locos Docos: "Mk II, if you didn't hold back, Raz wouldn't have been much of a challenge."
Garrick: "Locos, maybe, JUST maybe, he wasn't holding back, eh?"
Razor sighs and yanks off his helmet. "The name's Razor... and I'm not quite human. You pulled off some good moves in there..." He extends his gloved hand and accepts his shake, helmet under his other arm.
Nick Caligo (GM): He blinks.
Metal Sonic: "... Hold back??"
Nick Caligo (GM): *Razor has received PHASE SLASH.*
Garrick: "Locos had this crazy notion throughout the fight that you had some special move."
Locos Docos talks away the thing, and lifts his head up to see. *takes.
Garrick: "Something involving a twitching leg?"
Locos Docos: "Yeah... that may be it."
Nick Caligo (GM): Phase Slash is basically the equivalent of Power Hit + Accuracy. +2 bonus to hit. BUT... There's a difference. The +2 bonus is granted because the user literally teleports up to them in mid-dash, surprising them. It's a flatfooted bonus. It can also be used to cover great distances. It is only usable on the first slash of a double slash.
Locos Docos: "Despite being beaten to a pulp... that's a mighty fine move you received."
Metal Sonic: "You are a powerful fighter, and have earned my respect."
Razor nods slowly. "The same for you."
Mewtwo: "It is very unorthodox to grant a move to the loser... You are very lucky."
Locos Docos: "Then again, more unorthodox things have happened here..."
Garrick: "Mewtwo, look at the guy. He's a SIX FOOT TALL METAL HEDGEHOG. I think he can do what he wants..."
Metal Sonic: "And now, I will return to my room for maintainence."
Razor chuckles softly. "I'll put it to good use." He smirks to Metal Sonic. "We'll see if perhaps we can't duel again some day."
Locos Docos: "Until then, work on that ultimate move."
Locos Docos puts his head down a bit.
Metal Man: "Well, I could probably fight him some time..."
Locos Docos: "Don't even bother this time, Garrick."
Garrick: "Fine, fine, do what you want."
Locos Docos looks up to Metal.
Nick Caligo (GM): Metal Sonic strides back into the hall... MAN that's a cool Metal Sonic. I wonder why he was donated to this place by Robotnik?
Locos Docos: "Anything new on the research, MM?"
Razor: "Because... HE'S GONNA EXPLOOOOOOODE! No, wait... Robotnik... not E Li Three."
Metal Man: "Eh, well, the shops should bound with new items soon."
Mewtwo: "Indeed. We just got in a rather large shipment."
Locos Docos: "That doesn't answer my question, Metal."
Metal Man: "Research on the bananas? Well... bananas!"
Locos Docos: "Not the bananas. About the curtain and key."
Garrick: "I thought we were going to go to Kong Island next..."
Razor raises an eyebrow to Metal. "Sounds good to me... but damn... I'm tired... I'm gonna get a nice big tall glass of OJ... and relax..." He walks off towards the cafeteria.
Locos Docos takes out the roll. "Hmm... doesn't sound too promising." *He lowers his head so eyes can't be seen, but his mouth can... smiling.*
Aribar wakes up from, oddly enough for an elf, sleeping in the Arena... Realizing no one is there he heads to the R&R.
Locos Docos: "Then again, this all might be some wild goose chase. But I'd rather chase a goose then sit here arguing with others on what and when moves are brought out."
Razor grabs a nice big glass... and I mean BIG... gallon sized. FILLED with orange juice. He takes a seat and tilts it back with both hands, chugging it down.
Locos Docos: "Does anyone want a cookie?" *He gets off of the wall and acts normal again.* "Anyone!? Cookie as a treat!?"
