The crowd hollered and cheered, seeming contended by Carro's earlier display. The dapperly dressed Hofferson gave a meek chuckle, impressed with his own handiwork. Still, there was another match to announce- this one a little more comforting to see, not having a World Trade Fleet member as a fighter, after all. Carro cleared his throat and tapped his mic, quieting the crowd for a moment. "Next up we have one of the Saiyan Kingdom's finest, Nashua, fighting against nature's protector, Synthesia!"
Again, if the two showed up, a blast would soon whistle through the air, commencing the start of the battle! "Be sure to make this a good show, folks!"
Synthesia really didn't know what the heck this whole tournament of beauty thing was for, especially since he was the most beautiful person he knew. Nature trumped all in terms of raw beauty, after all. Synthesia would win the competition, and then would give the strange robot who decided to hold it a piece of his mind. Not necessarily in that order, mind you.
But for now, he needed to face Nashua. He'd met her before, albeit breifly. She seemed kinda meek to the child of nature, only amplified by the fact that she was a space monkey. Synthesia didn't want to utterly destroy her, so perhaps they should have a nonviolent show of beauty! That'd woo the crowds.
Oh, and she almost doubled him in terms of raw force. That was an important factor too.
Synthesia waved to the crowd as he walked towards the center stage. He was growing roses out of his palms and tossing them to the audience, smiling sweetly like the sickeningly sweet child he was. Once he got to the center ring, he waited for Nashua to make her own entrance before he cleared his throat.
"Space Monkey! It's been a while. Ooga Booga, right? Aaaanyways, how about I just slide you a banana and we have a luau instead of fighting?"
The Saiyan really didn't understand exactly what a "tournament of beauty" was supposed to be, but a tournament sure sounded like a great way to fight for sport and get stronger. After all, what better way was there to better one's skills than in a competition where everyone is fighting their hardest? And making all of her moves more "stylish" would be a unique challenge, one that might even end up helping out down the road at some point. So, Nashua found herself at the training grounds where she'd fought against Chromo and the ghost woman a while earlier, this time in a friendlier setting, where it seemed she'd be pit against the long haired greenish boy she'd met once before. Synthesia was his name? It was something like that, at the very least. As the Saiyan stepped out onto the battlegrounds to face him, she took a deep breath.
The young man had brought roses to throw to the crowd as he waved and smiled at the surprisingly large audience, leaving Nashua feeling like she'd forgotten something. It felt odd, but she reluctantly waved at the crowd, too, a wide smile forming across her lips as she bowed a few times, until Synthesia addressed her. He still insisted on calling her "Ooga Booga", for some reason, though the banana sounded tempting. Nashua considered the offer, but had to decide against it, in the end. "That sounds fun, and we should totally do it another time, but all these people did pay to see a fight, so we probably shouldn't disappoint them right?" She gave Synthesia a smile before she did some stretches to warm up, reaching down for her toes and squatting a few times. Wouldn't do her much good to pull a muscle in the middle of a tourney.
Once she finished warming up, she clasped her hands together and rubbed them up against each other. Something told her the kid might be a little nervous going up against a Saiyan like her, so she didn't want him to worry too much. "Don't be nervous," she called across, "We're not just here to fight, we're here to put on a good show too, right? So let's make it exciting!" And with that, the Saiyan leapt up into the air and spun herself around mid flight, outstretching her hands to shoot out a circle of ki blasts up into the air while she twirled, a few of them potentially headed towards her opponent, before she stopped herself and gripped her ponytail, taking a moment mid air to charge up the ki into her long strands of hair before whipping around and firing it off at Synthesia. "Incoming!" she yelled out as the purple blast sped towards the earth child.
"W-Wait!" It seemed his cries fell on deaf ears, perhaps unsurprisingly. She had a point, though. Despite the fact that she outdid him in terms of power, it wasn't like he didn't have any tricks up his sleeve. He'd been waiting for a good opportunity to try and test the limits of his power, and he supposed now was a better time than never.
Synthesia quickly dropped to one knee. The stadium around him collapsed towards him, small green 'veins' leading from the ground to himself. He continued his kneel, focused, extracting the power from the earth- to double his natural limit. A light green shadow appeared around his eyes- an indication of his new state.
Without looking up, the earth around the natural child erupted once more- this time, not nearly so volatile. Focused, precise spikes made from the stadium floor shot up around Synthesia, shattering the Ki blasts. The light show stopped, however, when Synthesia felt a much bigger attack coming from his adversary. His eyes flipped upwards, to the oncoming strike.
He finally rose from his kneeling position, and he put out his hands towards the blast. If the audience was looking for a show, he'd give them one. Instead of the usual dirt barrier, Synthesia found more freedom with his newfound power to create a shield out of something a little more... presentable.
A bud formed inches away from Synthesia's hands. The bud grew rapidly in size, expanding and changing. The bud turned into a much larger bud, a purple ball with white, frosted tips. The bud then bloomed outwards, creating a marvelous Dahila flower of extraordinary proportions. A flowery shield.
The flowery shield took the blast of Ki head on. It's petals quickly began to waver under the force of the blast. This, however, was the intention. As the center of the flower was blown to bits, the petals flew into the air and outwards, with petals falling all around the stadium- on the audience, outside the field, and some even found their way outside of the arena entirely.
The remainder of the blast, though, hit Synthesia, straight into his outstretched hands. It hit him with a bit more force than he expected- the child of nature was pushed back quite a bit. In order to avoid being knocked out of the stadium, he dug his heels into the stadium floor, stopping his backwards momentum. The remainder of the blast soon dispersed, with the only thing remaining being Synthesia's smug smile.
Synthesia's attention was then turned to a large rock, upturned by his feet as he skidded back. He slipped it on the top of his foot, flung it upwards, and kicked it at the airborne Saiyan. "Catch!"

Seemed the little guy had some gusto in him after all! Nashua's ki blasts were blocked by some impressive manipulation of the earth around the green kid, and while she was still expecting her more powerful beam to blast through all the little thorns and give the bio android a solid shaking, much to her surprise, her attack was blocked entirely by some strange but beautiful lower barrier that grew from Synthesia's hand. Crap, this guy was pretty good at being stylish, which was probably gonna make beating him in a competition based around style more difficult than the Saiyan had been hoping for. In any other circumstance, Nashua would have just taken advantage of her extremely powerful Oozaru form to win the fight, but something told her that a gigantic, hulking ape form with a slobbering jaw wasn't exactly going to be winning any beauty contests. She'd have to win this one on skill alone.
"That's a pretty cool flow-" Nashua started to call out to Synthesia, but before she could finish her sentence, a giant boulder was picked up and punted straight at her by the bio android. Normally she'd have just moved out of the way, but this was totally an opportunity to be stylish about things. The Saiyan lunged herself towards the rock and slashed out with her spear, slicing the boulder clean in two, both halves separating and flying past her off into the great beyond. "As I was saying," Nashua continued with some shade in her tone. "That's a pretty cool flower you got there. It'd be a shame if I were to... Make a better one!" The Saiyan then took a deep breath, a bit unsure of whether or not her intended technique would work out the way she was picturing it would in her head, since she'd never actually done it before. Now was the time to try it out, though!
Ki was focused into the tip of her spear, and the point began to glow bright pink, though no beam shot out. Instead, Nashua began waving her spear around as fast as her muscles would allow her to, which was pretty darn fast, it turned out. The Saiyan drew the shape of a flower in the air, and to the average spectator's eye, she was moving so quickly that all that would be perceptible was a bright pink flower glowing in the air, until Nashua finally released her ki energy and sent the glowing pink shape blasting towards Synthesia's own nature themed display. "Holy crap, that actually worked!" She mumbled aloud as she watched the ki drawing careen towards the bio android.
Synthesia would be miffed that she stole his motif were he not feeling so exhilarated from his new power. He felt like the world was his! Nothing could touch him, and he would prove it. Synthesia sidestepped straight to the middle of the arena, where he outstretched his arms. Two roots flung out from his back and shot out, piercing the blast of Ki straight through. This, of course, wasn't enough to dispel it- it had a bit too much force for that level of destruction.
What it did do, however, was change it's course- the Ki flower rode the roots like a ramp, burning them as it traveled. It got closer and closer, and eventually, Synthesia and the surrounding arena were enveloped in dust and rubble.
The battered Synthesia still stood there- he looked rather worse for wear. His gown was rather torn up, and he had scratches and bruises all over his body. The smile remained on his face, however, and his arms remained outstretched to both sides.
But then, light shone from the boy's body.
A twinkle fell from the sky, flashing and fluttering down from the heavens, leaving a glittering and sparkling trail in it's wake. The light was immense, and as it entered the cloud of dust, the light shone through the dust and debris, creating an almost disco-ball esque combination of dust and light.
The light wouldn't fall forever, however, and as it touched Synthesia's body it enveloped him in it's warmth. His ragged top began to heal, and his cuts and bruises which revealed green fluid were mended before the audience's very eyes. Synthesia then turned his palms upwards, to the sky. Coming from his legs were a set of roots that crept into the ground, and had burrowed their way in deep. As his palms turned up, the arena bloomed.
Or, rather, the indent of a flower left by Nashua's blast bloomed. The portion around Synthesia was cratered in the same pattern that the Saiyan had made for her strike. Now, however, all that remained was the plants that grew in it's wake- nature reclaiming it's land back early.

Well, crap, this guy was pretty good at being flashy and pretty looking. Though Nashua's ki flower beam had hit its mark quite nicely, all the wounds she'd delivered unto the bio android ended up healing away quickly, as if nothing had even struck him. On top of that, he used all his nature powers to make the crater her blast had created grow beautiful greenery and flowers, which almost felt like cheating to Nashua. "Yeah, nature is pretty and all, but you could seriously use a haircut, yourself," she thought a bit bitterly as she tried to think of some way to top him. She was pretty worn out from that flower beam, so if she was to do anything too taxing, she'd need to giver herself time to regenerate some energy first. And there was no way to be sure that if she did summon back her energy and strike the boy with it, that he wouldn't just heal himself back up again.
With a sigh, Nashua started to think she might be outmatched here, with all of Synthesia's hidden tricks, but then recalled she had one trick up her own sleeve. She just hoped that the judges of the competition were furries. "Pretty good, but," she called out, "Time to show you why we go ooga booga!" Nashua whipped out her space ships' keys and jabbed her finger onto the button that activated the blutz generator. While it was parked decently far away, its seventeen million waves of celestial light were more than enough to reach Nashua, and in an attempt to make her typically hulking and monstrous transformation more appealing to the eye, the Saiyan summoned two purple balls of ki in her hands and spun around with them, the dazzling lights looking like flowing ribbons as she grew in size until she stood massively over her competitor, and her spinning came to a stop.
"Let's go, green boy!" she playfully taunted down at the bio android as she held her hands over him, and purple beams of ki shot out from each of her fingertips, slashing across the battlefield below in tandem with each other. It almost looked as if she were a giant, monkey puppeteer, and the purple beams the strings that made her puppet dance. The puppet, in this case, being the bio android boy, who'd surely need to be quick on his feet to avoid all ten beams coming down at him from different directions.
Synthesia had a bad feeling about this. A real bad feeling about this. She whipped out some kind of device and pressed the button? What? Wasn't that cheating? Couldn't she be disqualified for that?
He watched in horror as she spun around, growing larger... and larger... and much, much more powerful. Synthesia's mouth hung open as he stared up at the absolutely monstrous monkey that stood before him. What... what exactly was about to happen to him? He didn't even know things could be this strong, and yet here she was. This hulking monstrosity.
What did he even do in the face of this overwhelming power? He could devise a strategy. Or, move at all- both would be better alternatives to just standing there and letting the beams ram into you. Unfortunately, that's exactly what Synthesia did. He was far, far too shocked at what he had just witness to even move, much less defend himself.
One of the beams slammed into Synthesia. Boy, did it slam. Immediately, Synthesia was swept off his feet, and said feet were then blown straight into the ground. The beam blew him straight into the floor, leaving a crater where Synthesia once was. In said crater lay the child of nature, battered, unconscious and utterly dumbstruck.

See, Nashua had been expecting Synthesia to dance around the laser beams she'd shot down at him with some impressive speed and skill, but instead, he just kind of stood there, and one of the beams rammed right down onto him at full power. As soon as he was knocked through the ground, Nashua immediately stopped her ki beams pulled her arms back defensively, a concerned expression on her face as the smoke cleared and revealed the green kid laying deep into the newly formed crater, totally knocked out. "...Whoops," Nashua thought as she realized that going Oozaru must have created a much bigger gap between their power levels than she'd initially thought it would. Without any way to tell what the bio android's power level was, and how he'd shrugged off one of her most powerful attacks, she assumed he must have been incredibly powerful.
Clearly, that wasn't exactly the case. Nashua somewhat awkwardly pulled out her space ship's tiny remote controller and tapped the blutz generator button with her fingernail, it only taking a few seconds for her to shrink back down to her petite Saiyan size. The young lady felt a bit hot as she felt all the eyes of the audience on her, and was starting to think she'd done something wrong until many of them broke out into cheers. A wave of relief flooded over her as she remembered that this was a tournament of beauty, but still a tournament. Nothing wrong with knocking the lights out of your opponent as long as you did it fashionably! Still, she felt kind of bad for whipping out her Oozaru form on the poor kid. He certainly seemed like he'd been frightened by it.
Nashua walked up to the crater that Synthesia was lying in, and gave the battered and bruised young man a bow of respect, even though he was probably too unconscious to see or hear her. "You fought honorably well," she commented with a smile, "I look forward to one day having a rematch with you!" Even if he'd never know she said it, it was practically a Saiyan custom to treat your opponents with respect. Golden eyes glanced down at the beaten green bio android for a few seconds before Nashua turned away and walked off of the battlefield. Someone else would be along to get him to a hospital or something, right? For now, she just needed to sit off to the side until the other matches wrapped up, and hope that she'd advanced herself to round two.

Cheers and roars of praise began to echo- a thrilling match to start the tourney, with even more in store for the future! Carro couldn't help but to stand up and give some applause alongside the audience, briefly turning to a nearby recording camera and his phone, tapping away at a text- he had to get the thoughts of the others on this, after all...
His employees decided a victor quicker than Carro expected, but he was in agreement. "The victor of this brawl is Nashua, of the Saiyan Kingdom!"
