The air parted around him as he flew towards Central City, face stone-like and breathing calm. A moment later, he stopped, and the muscular Saiyan floated in the air above the central building of Crop Co.
Vocado had sent Nashua to Vegeta, not long before. Many of the stronger warriors had perished in the fight in the newly named Badman City.
As such, this was the optimal time for this action.
Floating there, emotionless, Banzo's green eyes narrowed and he raised a single palm, an orb of energy forming in his hand as he aimed at the building below, letting his power build for a moment, before firing.
It was time to wipe Crop Co from the face of the Earth, before they could become a real threat.

Things were not going exceptionally well for the Pride Troopers, many of Koban’s team had not taken their ability to aid in the defense of Satan City well, and often every stride Koban felt he made in fixing the problems resulted in some new issue. Helping get his friends back on their feet meant pulling back a bit from his patrols but Koban could not simply allow it without a fight. Thankfully, however, it seemed now that the worst of it was over, Terryn was getting back into things off handling his own work, while Sam and the others dealt with the growing issues he had discovered.
Thus Koban was left, in a sense, on his own again. Yes he still had the others in a sense but it was a bit more distant now and much of the standard patrolling work was his own again.
It was unfortunate but not something that had come out of the blue, going from having the full team patrolling to just himself might have been a bit overwhelming, now, however, it just left the blue hero a bit more tired at the end of the day than he was used to, a bit longer and perhaps he would find a better balance.
Koban was in the midst of a workout when he felt a strange surge of power, he always kept his energy sensing abilities active on some level just in case anything ‘big’ happened, and at first, Koban almost dismissed what he sensed. It was a familiar energy, one he often recognized in it’s more relaxed state. Banzo.
The powerfully built Saiyan was by far one of the strongest on the planet, even if he was relaxed Koban could usually get at least a faint read on his general location if he focused. Now, however, he could sense it clearly and without even his full focus, Banzo was making use of his full, at least while untransformed, strength.
That itself was not an immediate concern after all Banzo was a fighter and one who clearly enjoyed a good workout. The first time they had met they had almost immediately made plans to train together, it was entirely possible Banzo was just giving his all in a spar or something.
But there was something… off about Banzo’s power, Koban couldn't quite put his finger on it but as familiar as it was it felt… wrong? Like someone had taken a song and changed the pitch to the point that while it was still recognizable it was nowhere near as pleasant.
That prompted Koban to drop his workout and depart the headquarters taking off for the general direction of Banzo’s power, Koban wasn’t sure WHY he felt so strong a need to get to Banzo as soon as possible but something about this felt wrong.
Koban was glad he had gone with his gut, glad he had not wrapped up his training and took a more leisurely approach to seek out Banzo, he only barely arrived in time to rocket himself in the way of the blast the large Saiyan had launched at a nearby building taking the hit hard across the back.
Koban grit his teeth in pain before whirling around to face the Saiyan “Banzo, it’s been a while. I hope you have a good reason for why I just had to stop you from blowing up that building.” Koban said crossing his arms over his chest and assuming a more proper stance. Koban HOPED there was a good reason for this, but as far as he could see there was no overt reason to attack a public place such as this.
an odd fact, as Banzo's eyes had previously been a light, sparkling blue. He certainly also hadn't been quite so cold and deadpan in his speech.
And reaching behind him, he tapped two capsules on his belt. From one, his Spacepod appeared, rising upwards with speed to hang over the battlefield in preperation. The other, however, let loose some sort of material, which seemed to crawl across the Saiyan like a horde of insects. He had been changing, ever since the dip in the liquid. Nobody had noticed, not even the eyes. A shame. For them.
Inside the tube, Banzo shuddered, lips curling in a frown as he slumbered. Inside his brain, a wash of nanomachines played across his cerebellum, making slight tweaks. The memories of his fight with Virus were suppressed... and new memories put in their place. His emotions were automated.... refined....
"To answer your question, I am taking out one of the biggest potential threats to myself. I don't appreciate your interference."
His mind was adapted for the suit, placed inside the capsule, and the green liquid pumping through it's tubes....
"As for your appellation, It is not entirely accurate."
He had taken the first step to being cured of this disease, the terrible scourge of flesh and weakness. After the process, he had nearly doubled in power.
"I am the Plaguebreaker Primus. The first of many. Don't worry, my friend...."
And Banzo gave a terrifyingly familiar smile, for just a moment, before the suit's tubes slid into his throat, and the mask closed over his face, his voice changing to a hideous growl.
"I will save you as well, and then we can fight together once more...."
And with that, he hit a button on his wrist, and the suit clamped tight. Another, and the pod above began to shine, preparing to deliver a burst of Blutz Waves to the Saiyan at a moment's notice.
---------- A NEW CHALLENGER HAS ARRIVED!
Hope this clarifies things a bit more for anyone confused. Also, finally get to debut this awesome Ishi Art of Plaguebreaker Banzo!
When disaster struck in Central City, it all happened rather quickly. The wayward ghost known as Banshee had been making her way through the area, to a chorus of alarmed shouts from passers-by unused to the little, wispy red ghost form she was usually confined to. A few more screams in the background were hardly enough to alert her to the arrival of the Plaguebreaker, until she caught a glimpse of the orb of energy he sent streaking towards a commercial building out of the very corner of her eye. At first, her expression was rather mute -- this sort of thing didn't really concern her. She was here on Earth for one reason, and one reason only, and that was to claim her revenge. She made a promise, but that promise didn't include protecting these people. She would never be one of those --
-- heroes? Her train of thought came to an abrupt halt when she spotted the man that intervened in the Saiyan's sudden assault. With bright orange hair, blueish skin and a Pride Trooper uniform, it wasn't exactly difficult to make out Captain Koban. The ghost froze in place as she stared upwards towards where the two men seemed to be facing off. This wasn't her fight. But, at the same time, this strange man seemed to be threatening the same hero that had shown her such courtesy before... She had a choice to make.
Was she ready to die a second time?
With a moment of focus, the ghost's form began to warp and reform until she struck the image of a spectral woman with a straw farmer's hat and a large scythe. With that transition, her power grew noticeably. This may not be her fight, and these people may not have her sympathy. But she also didn't intend to see one of the few bright spots in the world since she returned fade away to dust because of some musclebound villain in a funny mask. With a swoop, the woman shot up towards where the two were conversing. A spin of her scythe led to a shower of reddish ki sparks in her wake, serving little purpose other than to announce her presence.
"I don't wish to see this particular hero injured," Banshee stated in her ethereal, displaced voice. "I don't know what your reasons are for wanting to destroy this city, but your actions cannot be permitted to continue so long as the hero remains on the battlefield."
Banshee shows up... to aid in the defense?

Sesame had been blessed in his life on Earth. He had gotten a chance to redeem himself. All the bad things he did, escaped. He could do a lot of good but so far he felt he had not done much of it. He had just been trying to live a normal life. With the power to make a difference, it was not the best application of the life he had been given. He had tried to help people but hey spit it back into his face. Sesame just didn't know what to do. He was in Central city at the time just walking through the streets trying to figure out what to do. He then noticed what was in the sky. Two people looking to fight. That what it seemed to be. Sesame leaped up to the top of a building.
One of them was a blue-skinned and orange-haired warrior. He thought he had seen him before maybe in some newspaper. It didn't click fully but still, it was something he'd keep a note on. The other person he had not seen before. He could hear their conversation and he got an idea of who was who. In the sense of who was doing the bad and who was doing the good. The Orange haired man was trying to save the city while the masked man was trying to destroy it. He called himself the Plaguebreaker Primus. He never heard a name like that but he knew he must have meant really bad business. He realized this was his one chance, he could start redeeming himself. For all the people he killed he could start saving them. Sesame was trying to think where to start though he supposed getting people out of the city would be a good idea.
He focused then on a new arrival who seemed. She was a ghostly woman with a scythe. She seemed to be on the side of the Orange haired man. So he knew he had to help the people. He was not the strongest warrior, and this masked fellow didn't look like a joke. He may prove to be more of a hindrance than a help. First to get people out of here. Cause if things went bad at least he'd only damage the city. People were not as easy to replace. Buildings could be rebuilt. He'd Yell out at the top of his lungs so everyone in the city could hear him, "Alright. No need to Panic. It is best everyone moves to the outskirts of the city away from Crop Co." He'd yelled out trying his best to control his voice though it was hard with his damaged neck. "It is Unsafe at this time please go in an orderly fashion. When everything is ok I'll let you all know." Maybe some people would listen maybe only a few but hopefully, people would begin moving so if something bad did happen at least some of them would escape with there lives. Hopefully, it didn't come to that.
Powerlevel:24,000 (Sesame is around but he is focused on directing people out of the battle zone prob gonna take a bit you know)

Thread Pl: 47,210. Scouter visor equipped.
The leader of the FoP Rebellion hadn't been far off from Central when the huge power surge came to his senses, visually and to his kintetic reservoir sense (ki sense for short). He was hoping to have another technological think tank session Carro, this time with the small saiyan being alert! This however, as it was pver where he was going, was immediately requiring his attention!
The energy was aggressive, and rearranged to try sort a new identity. From the parts that didn't appear altered, he could sense Banzo, the strong and burly saiyan warrior. Yet, the arrangement of this ki gave way to something different! Against this presence, there was another powerful presence, but then 2 more arrived. One, the 'mute,' Sesame that helped him interrogate the soldier Taiko, and then the other was an unknown.
Ledinjin arrived, floating above CROP co at the same level as the others in the area. Sesame made use of his sound-based energy to broadcast an escape to those in the city. Truth be told, trying to tell them to be calm before demanding they exit the city was not a clear message, but he was trying! The Arcosian's eyes first fell onto that Heran from several months ago, back at that floating platform. In that old school hero style, he was standing against the villain, whom Ledinjin eyed next. They were as large as Banzo, but their energy and appearance was greatly different from the saiyan brute!
"Hey, lady! Keep your energy in check," Ledinjin shouted to the final person, a ghostly woman with red energy around her visage, "There are,still people around!"
He would direct her to the civilians fleeing on foot, scrambling away from the created battlefield! He then shot down to the CROP Co building lobby, not bothering to sit and talk. He had to get Carro's people out of there, as well as the CEO himself. Whomever this guy was up above, he meant business coming out here like this. He cupped his hands out, before roaring alarmingly, a little of his own energy tapped into, "Hey! Listen to the disembodied voice! You are all in grave danger being here! The building's under direct attack!"
Hopefully, Carro was in and would've already been alarmed. If not, Ledinjin and Sesame's respective alarms ought to have gotten them moving.

BLIGHTING THE CROPS CARRO'S BASE PL: 10 | LEO'S BASE PL: 32,000
Nobody was home.
Ledinjin's entry to the Crop Co. building would only be met with silence. Not a single Plexbit scampered about. There was only several papers taped to the wall, most notably a calendar with the current date circled, the words "GAME DAY" scribbed on. Perhaps all the employees were elsewhere having a ball... Well, save for one of them, of course.
"I knew it. I fucking knew it." Carro grumbled, his power sparking far, far below the building. Security cameras outside had picked up every word, every action thus far. Even if Banzo did blow up the main headquarters, the lower labs would likely still be safe hundreds of feet below the ground. Carro tossed several papers aside, storming forwards with clenched fists. LEO paced about behind her pilot, mimicking his irritated steps. "First Van goes nuts, next Sulfur seems to be god-damn depressed, THEN Amber continues to freakin' toy with us, and now...?!" He listed all his recent misfortunes with his fingers, running a hand through his hair and slumping against the wall. "I just want to run this stupid company like a normal person and not die. Kais above, is that too much to ask?" He buried his face into his hands, which were now wet with stressed tears. "...What do I do with this stupid, stupid dumb mess?"
A helmet was flicked into Carro's lap. The saiyan raised his head and put a hand on it, his fingers running across the orange stripes. "...LEO." The panicked saiyan's gaze trailed up to the battle ready Plexroid leader. Already, dozens of formidable powers began to pop up outside the building in apparent defense. "PERCENTILE OF DEATH CHANCE: 47%." Her voice echoed. "DISREGARDED. HEAD OF PLEXROIDS WILL NOT LET PILOT: CARRO L. HOFFERSON'S WORK BE IN VAIN." She lowered her head to his level, eyes fiercely gazing. "JUSTICE PROTOCOL: ACTIVATED. REVENGE SYSTEMS: ONLINE." Carro installed no such things in LEO, but he did give a quick amused chuckle in response to his fiercely determined partner's prodding. "PILOT IS GOOD. PILOT IS IMPORTANT. PILOT IS LEADER. PILOT IS NOT WEAK."
"...Well if you die, I die, if that thing's workin' in you, so I... might as well." Carro pushed himself to his feet with a huff as another tremor echoed from above. "Just... promise me you won't leave me. Ever." A beep echoed from LEO before she brought her head closer with a purr, her mechanical tongue licking at the saiyan's tiny face. "AFFIRMATIVE." Carro swiftly pushed himself back to his feet with another weak laugh. "Let's try not to die, alright? There's dozens of other people 'round here that will go if we don't do anything, and I'm not about to let all our work disappear. We can fix things. We're mechanics, that's what we do." Carro's voice and body still shook like a leaf, but he was going to try to be this odd hero figure now, apparently. Sure, Crop Co. had multiple locations, but... This was the first. It had a special place, and was filled with plenty of original, important documents.
"Let's show this heartbreaker that strength's not about how hard you can punch."
An all-too familiar rip echoed from above the group, the sky tearing and opening into a black and orange portal. There was no hesitation, no need for a flashy entry- LEO lunged from it's depths with a certain orange-haired saiyan perched on her head, his locks waving in the winds. "HEY, YOU, YOU HORRIBLE BOYFRIEND!" Carro snapped at Banzo, calling him out on his betrayal to a certain Avali- Sulfur was not going to be any happier after this. "I think you're doing something wrong if your biggest threat poorly budgeted and is led by a lil' clod with power level of what, four?" He gave a sly grin that betrayed the fear evidenced by his trembling arms. LEO reared back and hissed at their newfound enemy. "...And you do realize there's dozens of other companies like mine, right? Capsule Corp, CURE... They all have better funding too, I'll admit."
"But if you want to take away my home, then try. Last chance to back off with no hard feelings though."
His gaze turned to the other warriors before slipping back into LEO's cockpit, strapping himself into the pilot's seat and fastening his Blutz Band around his neck, just to be safe with that glowy generator that would inevitably power-up Banzo. A familiar spirit and Pride Trooper were sided against the corrupt fighter- Ledinjin too, and some strange demon man. Quite the team, but would it be enough to take out the strongest Saiyan alive?
POST ORDER: Koban -> Banzo -> Banshee -> Sesame -> Ledinjin -> Carro OOC NOTES: "FIGHT ME U CLODDY CLOD"
Post by Captain Koban on Aug 7, 2018 16:25:28 GMT -6
Koban had been unsure what to expect out of Banzo, he had hoped that perhaps the large Saiyan would reveal that he was actually working with the place he had attacked, that it was an attempt to ascertain how effective they could defend against a truly powerful attack. While not a GOOD idea it was one that Koban could certainly see happening and if it was the case Banzo was likely more than capable of making sure if the building was not strong enough that nobody was hurt.
Unfortunately, this was not the case, he revealed that this was a part of a plan? Intended to draw out ‘threats’ with Banzo even naming Koban himself as such a threat while also revealing that the building that Koban now identified as one of the Crop Co buildings was a major threat to him specifically.
The more Banzo ‘explained’ the situation the less about it Koban actually understood, it was only when the strange suit he wore began to change and extend a mask over his face that Koban was really focused enough on Banzo’s face to notice the change in his eyes.
Combined with his entirely aberrant behavior Koban could really only assume that either Banzo was possessed by something or under some sort of mind control. Sam had warned him of the sort of creatures that could control people and a few ways to fend off such attacks but this seemed… different.
The strange tubes that appeared to be pumping something into the mask also hopefully meant this was some sort of artificial mind control, the sort of thing that could be reversed without having to just hope that they could eject a renegade spirit from the Saiyan’s body.
“Banzo, I don’t know what’s been done to you, but I’ll do everything I can to fix this,” Koban said clenching his fists and readying himself for a fight, as he did so however he found himself joined by a familiar face, one he most certainly did NOT expect of all people.
“It’s good to see you, I knew you were strong enough to make your own choices.” Koban said giving the spirit a wide grin, it brought him immense joy to see her here and apparently actively coming to his aid, the only concern, of course, was that Koban was unsure how well she would do in a fight against Banzo if the Saiyan could still go Oozaru, but of course her very nature meant that it was entirely possible that it would be irrelevant if she fell victim to Banzo, it was almost certainly quite difficult to ‘kill’ a ghost.
And soon after her arrival others popped up, Koban could sense someone strong trying to wrangle the civilians down below while another familiar figure made his arrival, Ledinjin the Arcosian that Koban had had some less than pleasant interactions with on the Lookout was looking to also get the civilians to safety.
While Koban butted heads with the Arcosian on the Lookout he would certainly not turn up his nose to having his help with subduing Banzo. The chaos also brought out someone from within the Crop Co building itself, the CEO of Crop Co himself, and the pilot of the Lion mech, Koban had been surprised when he had done some looking and discovered that the Saiyan whom he had stood with when the spirit had been causing problems was the head of a rising company. It seemed as well that the Saiyan knew Banzo already as well adding another whole level of confusion to this whole mess.
Post by Ghost Banzo on Aug 7, 2018 18:15:47 GMT -6
Within moments, others began to arrive. That rebel leader was below, trying to usher people out of there, as was some demon he did not recognize. A spectre, as well. Seeing as it was the only other fighter currently focusing on him, Banzo turned to stare at Banshee. "You do not wish me to harm Koban? He is the one coming to fight me. Very well, however. If you two leave now, neither will come to harm. If you aid me in defeating him or even distract the others, I will swear not to kill him or permanently damage him. If you insist on fighting me directly..."
The Blutz Generator lit up above him, and he began to swell, teeth sharpening, as a portal opened up above them, a certain mechanical lion leaping out of it. "Then I will make no such promise." He swelled, and the mechanical suit unfolded with him, stretching to mesh to his body.
As Carro emerged, yelling at him, the Oozaru glanced over for a moment. "I realize. You nevertheless remain a threat, you and your workers. I do not intend to kill you, however. Get out of the robot, let the building be destroyed, and you too may live." Spreading his arms, he turned to look at the trio assembled, and the two others down below. "ARE ANY OF YOU TRULY READY TO DIE THIS DAY, FOR STEEL AND CONCRETE? IS THIS THE HILL YOU WOULD DIE ON?" The giant ape shook it's head.
"No. So turn around. Keep your heads down. Focus on the threat of the WTF, and leave me about my business." Looking at Koban, he flexed one hand. "I have been improved. Everyone will be improved. I am simply clearing the way of potential complications."
Floating there, tail hanging beneath him, legs bunched and arms wide, Banzo looked to each one. "If you want to live, turn around and leave. If you wish someone else to live, aid me in knocking them out and removing them from this fight. This is your final offer." He formed an orb of Ki in one massive hairy hand, and held it in front of his face, before suddenly flicking down and firing at an empty stretch of street below them. There was nobody within 50 meters of the orb, perhaps as big around as a barrel, when it hit the ground. It shot through the concrete, and a second later, the street exploded, sending asphalt shrapnel skywards.
As the glow of the attack illuminated him, Banzo's voiced growled out "If you still choose to fight.... then let us get on with it."
The ghost regarded the growing oozaru from beneath the brim of her straw hat. His offer might have held some weight, would that she believed him trustworthy -- but it read to her as a temporary strategy, a ploy to divide the defenders to then defeat them one at a time. She was no veteran to these types of battles, but she paid keen enough attention to history when she was a girl to recognize it as a common enough tactic. Even if it was one more regularly formed on a grander scale than this. Either way, she wouldn't allow the trick to stand unquestioned.
"You don't think you can win, do you?" she called across to Banzo, allowing her scythe to fall to her side loosely. "If you did, you wouldn't be trying to form temporary alliances here. Even if I thought you were telling the truth, I don't trust myself enough to oblige in such an action. Were I to begin with the slaughter--" her eyes cast across the city around her with a furrowing in her brow. "--I can't very much say I would be able to bring myself to a stop. No, I have chosen my course of action and it is to stand between you and those you seek to harm."
A faint smirk tugged at her lips, before she lifted her hand to remove her hat. She tossed it to the side as if readying herself to fight, only for it to vanish into smoke as it left her presence. Her voice took on a strange tone, one of amusement at the nature of his threats. "You would do well not to speak of death as if you have any understanding of it," she let out a ghostly snicker, almost resembling the howling of wind against shutters. "I am dearly acquainted with the condition. Ask that very same question of yourself: are you prepared to die for this? To die without a cause?"
Without awaiting an answer, the ghost swooped backwards and swept her scythe before her, allowing a rain of ki to fire from the tip of the blade, right towards the oozaru. It wasn't her most powerful attack, but she cast it across a wide arc in the hopes of ensuring a hit. More than damage him, it was meant as a physical response to the very offer she mocked.
Banshee uses a basic ki attack to open the fight with Banzo!
Sesame looked around as he heard a voice he remembered. Ledinjin. They had met only a brief period ago. Sesame gave him the thumbs up before the got back to the main task at hand. People had been warned and now it was seen if they were going to solve this with or without violence. Then someone else came out of a building. He or she he could not tell from where he was riding some machine and basically not in a good mood. Apparently, he owned this place. Sesame leaped down from the building as he walked over to one of the stores nearby the scene. He was going to need some equipment right quick before he attacked. Plus with people leaving it gave him a chance to fight with all his abilities. The More people to hear him the worse. Everyone seemed to be trying to get this man to back down but it seemed not to work.
It got him really curious how strong this man really was. Did he think he could take them all on? Maybe he could sense ki. He had meet people with monstrous power form his own guesses but powers beyond monsters? No. He had not anyone like that in his life. If he really wanted to help he was going to have to transform. First, though he grabbed some dices from a nearby shop and put some money on the counter to pay for it. He'd prob be ok with that. Plus this protected the city. They'd make some useful sound weapons hopefully in the coming fight because it didn't seem this Banzo fellow had any intention of backing down. He'd take a good look around the city getting ideas of where he could position himself. Where he could do the most damage.
Banzo began to ask if they were all willing to die. Sesame knew his answers but he didn't speak it. He just looked up at the Ozzaru. No words were going to solve this now. They could say whatever they wanted to say. Of course, he was ok with death. He deserved to be sent to the depths of hell. Why should he fear it? If he blew up that building that would not be the only thing that was hit. It was not just about people dying it was about how people lived would be ruined. It'd be a symbol. He thought about when he walked through Badman city. It became a mark of evil. That you can do such vile acts and get away with it. What would a world become if evil was allowed to roam without good? He'd rather die then find out.
He'd watch as Banzo blew up a small street with a powerful ki blast. A powerful but fruitless display of this power. He'd not turn his back on a life he didn't deserve. He needed to earn his life on earth. He'd leaped to the top of a nearby building in one bond. He'd then took out his Demonic Lamp. It would make him as strong as he needed to be, hopefully. He had only use it once when he fought Taiko. He still had a lot of sounds stored up for a real fight. He'd open the Lamp dark energies swirling around him. He closed his eyes keeping his focus. His Form shrunk down slightly as the shirt he was wearing was blown off as he bulked up. His Body was humming like an engine ready to go. Sound emanating from every vent in his body. Even his back had some now. For an assassin, his strongest form did cause a lot of noise.
The Humming would get quieter as he stood back. It was not like he had all day to plan. He'd leap off the roof launching himself towards Banzo backside. Seeing as Banshee had just fired a ton of blasts down at him. He'd rather be behind the beast to avoid the blast. He assumed even though he may have been vastly more powerful then his base form the form decreased maybe his speed but for sure his mobility. Sound Energy flowed through one of the dices he grabbed he putting it between his fingers. "Nai Okami." Sesame said under his breath firing the dice towards Banzo left ear. Sesame would land at this point using this time to access how his first attack would go. As the Dice would hopefully near Banzo ear, he'd click his thumb and middle finger together. The Dice which was not going to make a lot of noise all of a sudden to make it as loud as a shotgun being fired. Course to them it'd not be that but to a man with ears far larger and perhaps more sensitive than the rest of them. It could be annoying at least. A lack of focus in any part of this fight be an issue. Though he would have made it louder expect people were still close so that may not have been wise.
Used Demonic Lamp Powerlevel:96,000. Used Nai Okami (Crying Wolf) to make a dice flying past Banzo as loud as a shotgun blast to maybe either cause him minor pain or cause him to lose some focus. Prob won't do much but we will see. Kp:3/3

To Ledinjin's surprise, there was no one in the building... No one! There was only a notice proclaiming Game Day on a nearby board. Seemed that Carro had issued everyone to take the day off from work, which relieved Ledinjin. It led him believing that Carro wasn't even aware of what was happening! The sound of explosions and machines coming to life attracted his attention, the Arcosian rushing out to see what was going on!
Banter, firstly, but then an enormous transformation from man in the armor. At this point, Ledinjin could tell, for sure: This was Banzo! Whatever this stuff attached to him was, it couldn't contain the saiyan's massive presence. Carro emerged, LEO with him, as he berated the Oozaru. When Banzo demanded the Heran to focus on the WTF while he aimed to ruin CROP Corporation for reason unbeknownst to Ledinjin, the Arcosian's energy erupted with his anger!
"Banzo, you daft idiot," Ledinjin bellowed, his body now sleek and covered in white carapace. His antlers, as well, shrunk to mere little spikes at the side of his head, "They are helping us combat the World Trade Fleet! You don't get permission to play God! Not while I'm still here!"
Ledinjin wasn't entirely the same strength as Banzo, but what he had going for him would be speed! He called out to Carro, Sesame, who'd gone and given himself an incredible power boost and was already unleashing an assault on Banzo; and the pale lady there, "You two, help Sesame out and knock him down a few pegs!"
He then looked at Koban, and proceeded to give him orders as well.
"You, Captain! We're going to keep them covered by running interference. Don't you dare hold back against him!"
It was at that point that Banzo shot down a large energy ball at nothing, just as a show of intimidation to the group. Ledinjin scoffed, before bellowing, "You need the sense smacked back into you if you think that's going to intimidate us... I'll start!"
With the declaration, Ledinjin erupted up to Banzo from the entrance of CROP Co. He was smaller than Banzo, but he knew how to throw around his weight. Ledinjin sent his right foot toward's Banzo's chest, his angle suggesting Banzo would be lifted further into the air if the blow connected.
Ledinjin's pissed and has engaged in True form! Math down below. He berates Banzo before giving commands to everyone in the thread. Afterwards, with a retort to Banzo's intimidation tactic, he launches himself up to Banzo and aims to knock him upwards!

OOZARU CARRO'S BASE PL: 20 (x2) | LEO'S BASE PL: 160,000 (x5)
From inside the feline's cockpit, Carro's expression twisted with disgust and rage. LEO, just a robot? His headquarters, just a lump of steel and concrete?! Ledinjin snapped back, explaining how the company was helping combat the Fleet- Banzo too dismissed the clearly superior companies as a threat as well, ranting about how everyone would be "improved." "Yeah, well I think we've found our true threat now, you blatantly evil, senseless CLOD!" The saiyan rang as LEO's cannons deployed and her systems shifted into overdrive. LEO raised a barrier to protect the building from flying asphalt as her pilot took a slow breath in, looking up at the Oozaru and putting a hand on his Blutz Band's clip...
"Hey, Ledinjin?" The saiyan's voice would resound on his friend's scouter comm. "I'm about to do something stupid. Keep me from destroying too much, alright?" With a slow inhale, the saiyan undid his Blutz band, keeling over with a pained, animalistic scream as his eyes went red...
LEO's form disappeared into light as a massive, ape-like shape landed on the ground. The light released solidified into steel, consolidating about the newfound Oozaru's body. A helmet formed, gauntlets, and two familiar canons on the armored ape's back. The instinct-driven Carro glanced about, his gaze locking on Banzo. He didn't know why, but... just looking at the other beast filled him with rage- murderous, destructive rage, concentrated on this one man. The beast raised his head into the air, echoing with a loud screech before darting forwards, aiming to sink his teeth right into their foe's waist!
Carro activates his UNCONTROLLED OOZARU FORM! LEO goes into MAX OVERDRIVE! Carro's SACRED FLUTE (flavored Blutz Waves) reduces his form by -x3, but buffs LEO by +x1! LEO's new PL (x5) is 160,000! As she's in a temporary form, her KP is now 7/7.

Koban held just a bit of hope that perhaps whoever had done this to Banzo had not accounted for the idea that the suit he wore that was perhaps aiding in warping his mind would need to grow once he transformed. Unfortunately of course that hope was very quickly dashed as Banzo initiated his blutz generator and made the transformation into the mighty Oozaru.
Koban had never seen Banzo’s Oozaru transformation before, and was only vaguely acquainted with the form in general, the Saiyans he had met that used it in his youth had also been MUCH weaker, now however the transformation brought Banzo’s already substantial power to staggering levels.
Still though he was now quite a bit bigger which meant every sort of weak point the titanic Saiyan had was bigger as well, sure the Oozaru transformation did practically nothing to reduce the user’s actual speed, especially when controlled. But it was best to keep mindful of what little positives remained right now.
Koban steeled his gaze on Banzo not showing any sense of intimidation in the face of the Saiyan’s overwhelming power as he spoke, assuming they took him at his word it was perhaps not the worst idea to do as he requested, after all a building could be rebuilt. However the fact that his attack had come with no forewarning and that he had mentioned wanting to draw out threats to him made it hard for Koban to accept that all Banzo wanted was the building’s destruction.
“I have no intention of dying today, but I also have no intention of letting you do as you please. If that means fighting you then so be it, I have no reason to believe your claim to just want the building gone, how many PEOPLE might you have killed with that attack if it had been allowed to hit?” Koban said rolling his shoulders and tightening his hands into fists as his power began to rise.
While Koban began his transformation the others began to speak and likewise taken on there own full strength, his spirit friend had arrived at her full strength it seemed but remained strong in her conviction even in the face of Banzo’s power, looking to her briefly Koban realized something important and grinned but kept silent.
Ledinjin seemed to sort of try to reason with Banzo but it seemed unlikely to work as far as Koban could tell, MAYBE if Banzo’s distaste for the WTF was strong enough it might but with his sheer strength it was very likely Banzo would consider it unlikely that he would need the aid of Crop Co.
As Ledinjin spoke to him Koban’s body began to grow and his skin shifted to a vibrant shade of green as his power exploded outward completeing his transformation. Koban was not particularly used to taking orders but it didn’t much matter, he had every intention of squaring up to Banzo regardless of Ledinjin telling him to do so.
With a sigh Koban surged forward after Ledinjin looking to strike at Banzo alongside him aiming a shoulder tackle directly for the jaw of the Oozaru to aid in Ledinjin’s attempt to send him into the air, the higher they took this the more safe it would become for the civilians below.
And then into the fray joined ANOTHER Oozaru, the short Saiyan that had piloted the Lion mech having initiated his transformation, while not as strong as Banzo’s Koban was still pleased to have the aid of a creature of at least comparable size to banzo… until it became clear that while the other Oozaru was still attacking banzo he seemed entirely wild and uncontrolled.
Koban activates his Super Heran form! His PL has become 200,000! 3/3 KP

Irritating. None of those present seemed to be willing to compromise here. The solid green eyes of his head-set bored into Banshee as she refused his offer. "Feh. I admit, I'm surprised by how rapidly I have been surrounded. I knew I should have waited to bring Virus and Chromo, Perhaps Alpha along. Oh well." He muttered in a low tone, as she tossed her hat aside.
It was when she smirked at him and spoke, as if intending to shake his unshakable will in the path he was serving, that he had to laugh. "Beheh.... Beheheheh... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA! WITHOUT A CAUSE? YOU UNDERSTAND NOTHING, SPECTRE." Eyes narrowing, he clenched his fist. "I have a cause I am MORE than willing to die for, now. A cause that supersedes this petty war, one that will be meaningless when our goals are completed. No more war. No more death. And besides...." He grew serious, a disdainful look crossing his face. "I'm not particularly scared of someone who already died once."
He leapt forwards, as Banshee fired a rain of ki blasts at him, and the battle began. The attacks battered off his body, but he barely noticed. The difference in power was simply too great for there to be much effect. His fist swung forwards, a hammer-blow aimed to knock the ghost downwards and into the ground.
From behind, he felt the Ki Signature of that demon suddenly flare, and heard a slight whistling noise coming his way. Immediately, he dove downwards, and a moment later a loud but bodiless "CRACK" echoed where his head had been. Odd. Was that even an attack? Snorting in disdain, he glanced from Banshee to Sesame. "If you intend to simply sit there and be pathetic, leave. This is embarrassing."
As he spoke, Ledinjin began to bark orders. Hmm. Problematic. A coordinated attack would be negative indeed for him... and the discovery of CUREtech in his body could be potentially disastrous. No, he would have to prevent this. .
He swung around to face the oncoming Arcosian and Heran, sweeping his tail around to batter him away, but the warrior's speed was nothing to sneer at, and Koban's odd new form was quite powerful indeed. Almost comparable in scale to his Oozaru. Ledinjin, however, was almost as strong as Banzo was by himself, and currently the Saiyan's largest problem. Should he try a surprise all-out attack...? No. Instead, he pulled his head back and reared forward sharply, headbutting at the oncoming kick and shoulder tackle. It hurt, a lot, and he reeled back for a moment, but he had managed to hopefully inflict some damage as well. Shaking his head, somwhat disoriented, Banzo rubbed his face for a moment...
And that was when he suddenly became cognizant of the berserk Oozaru directly behind him. He sighed deeply, turning around as he felt the Saiyan's Ki. For all that size... he was about 20 power level. "Are you actually being serious right nWOAH SHIT FUCK HOW?" He barked out, tone changing mid-way through to shock as the barely stronger than a turtle Oozaru proceeded to hit him like a relative truck. Or...
Oh that clever son of a bitch. "THIS IS WHY I THOUGHT YOU WERE A THREAT! GAH! HOW DID YOU EVEN DO THIS?" He howled, in confusion and rage, as he brought a knee up hard towards Carro's throat. How the hell? The cat robot had transformed and was surrounding him like power armor, meaning that the berserk Oozaru's actual Ki was minimal....
But for all intents and purposes, he was fighting an unsensable Robot Oozaru. A bead of sweat ran down his face as he assessed the situation. Ledinjin was almost as powerful as he was.... and of the other four, Carro and Koban were about half or less than two thirds, and the other two barely a quarter each. Even so, that was adding up to more than twice his available strength, and while battles were far from that straightforwards, he didn't like how that scale was being tipped, not at all.
