He felt the impact of the foot. That felt good to pay Hale back for his last couple attacks. He'd spin and land in the ground sliding to a halt. He'd look over at Hale who was flat on his back. Guess that hurt him at least a bit. He'd got to his feet and dusted himself off though so he guessed it really was not that serious. He did admit he was a pain to nail down. Mollusc nodded. "Yah I guess I am. Unfortunately for your play time is over." Mollusc slid his legs apart. He knew in his current state Hale had the power advantage so it was time to take it up a notch. He was going to need to transform.
Ki began to surround Mollusc as his body began to bulk and expand. The ground under him broke apart as dust and rocks were shot up covering Mollusc. He slowly grew to be three times his normal size to tower over Hale. He was now twenty-one feet tall but more important he had a four times power boost. This should get Hale quaking in his boots. Too bad he could not sense Ki. Mollusc let the dust clear as he looked down at Hale. "Hope you don't mind but I wanted to get a real work out. Hope you got more coming or else you're in trouble." Mollusc brought his left leg back as he went to kick Hale like he was a large rock and knock him away.

His bluff either worked better than he had hoped or Mollusc didn't notice and was trying to simply one up him in power. The aura that has been swirling around Hale died down as he slid his feet closer together and narrowed his eyes at Mollusc, watching as his energy did similar to what Hale was trying to mimic, but the change in his body to such a drastic and sudden degree showed it was much less of a bluff. Hale could have charged to try and distract him from powering up, but besides the fact that it was a friendly spar, he wanted to see how the two matched up with Hale only in his Brute form before taking it any further.
The amount of change however was at least alarming if not a bit intimidating because it wasn't simply a large change like Hale's transformation, but significantly more drastic one. Hale wasn't stupid enough to think this was simply a cosmetic change as Mollusc didn't seem the type to bluff to that degree, but there was no way of knowing just how much stronger. It was clearly dangerous but he decided to stay in his current form and test things for better or worse. Despite the size difference, Hale slowly walked closer and rolled his shoulders with a sigh, standing in front of the larger Namekian. "By all means, transform away. I imagine if you'd ever dealt with an Arcosian before you know we can transform multiple time over, though I'd like to see just what this form of yours can do." When the large leg moved he instinctively expected it to be slower, but it was considerably faster than before and he barely had time to bring his arms up in front of his face before he went flying through the air and coming to a sliding stop. "Okay then...", giving a bit of a cough.
The kick hurt, and it hurt bad. Truth be told he wasn't sure waiting to test this further was much of a good idea, and a kick much harder or one of those blasts from earlier with this power might end this fight a lot faster than he had hoped for. Hale's palms lay flat on the ground as he pushed energy from his hands to elevate him slowly to a standing position, his body beginning to glow green, but the aura was much larger than what he attempted to show earlier before Mollusc powered up. The light began glowing so bright his body was momentarily hidden, then flared considerably larger than Hale's body before dying down to the shape of his body after his own transformation. Unlike Mollusc, his body had shrank in size while growing in power, but now the fight was really about to begin.

Hale made it known that he could still transform. That was good, not only did it mean Hale was also holding back but also he could get stronger more than once. He didn't know the Aroscians could transform that much but still, he didn't mind. He'd finally see what they were made of. He watched as his ki impacted Hale's form. He was surprising Hale didn't fly off even father but he should have expected that. It was not as Hale was a weakling. He had gotten this far afterall. Then Hale took an odd pose. He was unsure why he took that pose but with the energy going around his body it was clear he was going to transform. Then a bright light blinded him as he covered his face.
Out of the light, he saw a smaller Hale. No longer with those horns but with an oddly shaped head. He was smaller even. At first glance, it didn't seem much stronger than his old form. But at the same time, he knew Hale didn't just decide to power down. "You said something that got me curious forgive me for asking. You said you can transform many times over. What form would this on that totem pole. I assume that the first form was your base and this is one of the many forms you can transform into." Mollusc said, he was trying to gauge how the Arosican forms worked.
Taking a long deep breath, he soaked in the scene, looking around to both sides, rolling his neck as he faced Mollusc again, exhaling just as slowly. As he extended his arms, clenching and unclenching his fists, he softly smiled before answer his sparring partner. "There are quite a few forms depending on the Arcosian really. I have a few less than most as I don't tend to need them all, but the one you saw earlier was, well I guess you could saw it was..." bending down and holding his hand flat above the ground, then raising it a bit. " -maybe my second weakest form. I can significantly lower my power even lower to save my stamina. This form is my true form, no transformations, just all me. It is my strongest form. You see when we are born we have the ability to suppress our true power and can progressively release it as needed through physical transformations." Jumping on his tip toes a few times and stretching some, not shifting into this form near enough as of late to feel comfortable as strange as that was.
"So on the totem pole as you put it, this would be at the top. So with any luck, this should match your current form much better than the last. So go ahead and give it a test." Sliding his legs together slowly and letting his arms flow slowly out to his side, leaving his guard open.
Hale explained his race had many forms and he had less than many of his brothers. Yet the form that he saw was his second weakest form. So it was not his base. That gave him an idea that Hale was weaker then he thought but still quite strong. He was transformed this whole time. That was pretty impressive, he didn't seem tired at all. Guess that save stamina thing was not a joke. He then noted that this was his true form. This was his strongest form. He'd nodded, so he was facing Hale at his best now. Guess both were about to go all out with each other. No throwing light blows they were going in with haymakers.'
Mollusc smirked as Hale asked if they were at the top. "Close I suppose. I've meet stronger than myself but this as strong as I can become personal. The same for you as you said. So at least for this fight, we have reached the top." Mollusc flexed his muscles ki surrounding his body. Hale was already waiting for him to strike and he would do so. He'd bring back the same leg he had punted Hale before. He'd bring it down full force attempting the same motion to see the difference. Maybe he'd dodge this time, or prehaps a block. Most exciting at all maybe he'd take it head on and stop him with his new found strength?
Despite being Hale's strongest version of himself, he rarely used this form, relying on his others to train his body. His suppressed form would take the least stamina but it was the equivalent of wearing weighted clothing almost. He had to learn to use his movements more efficiently and use his strength to his advantage despite what his erratic and brutish fighting style showed. The more he transformed the more he unshackled himself and become closer to his true power, and when finally moving into his true form he was free to use all of his power to the fullest.
Unlike his previous form that Hale used to show off his brute strength, this form despite being stronger was meant for a completely different type of fighting style of speed and precision. As the foot raised, Hale stood firm as if he were ready to take the kick full force, pushing one of his feet into the ground and placing both hands out in front of himself. Moments before the foot would have impacted similarly as before, Hale used his increased speed to leap over the kick and onto the larger foot. Using the forward swinging momentum from the kick, he pushed off of it as it moved forward and propelled himself feet first into the air, aiming to kick Mollusc in the chin with both feet.
He watched as Hale seemed prepared to take the kick head on. Guess he had forgotten what had happened last time or the boost in power was that great. Either way, he was ready to kick Hale away but then he dodged the blow landing on his foot. That brought his foot down of course. Then Hale launched right at him punching him right in the chin. Mollusc took a step back his feet slamming into the ground to keep himself up. He'd wipe away a bit of purple blood. "Not bad." Mollusc brought his right fist back. "But that is not good enough!" He swung his fist forward aiming to slam it right into Hale's chest and send him flying away.
Before Hale could land he saw Mollusc recovering and sending another attack his way, though unlike the last this one wasn't near as easy to get out of the way of. As the attack came towards his body, he extended his arms and legs, taking the blow to the body but closing around the fist to keep himself from being knocked back and away from the fight. Hale was a close range fighter and his best chance was to get in close and stay in close, so he couldn't afford to be knocked away by someone with significantly longer reach or it would only cause issues. Holding tightly onto the first, he winced in pain as the blow still hurt, but he was finally able to shake it off enough to move, and reached down grabbed onto Mollusc's middle finger as he spun so his legs were locked around the Namekian's wrist. Grabbing the finger with both hands, he leaned back and pulled it up and back as hard as he could manage, trying to bend it back towards the top of his his arm.
Mollusc felt an impact, guess Hale was not going to dodge this one. Still, the man held on. What was his plan? He'd lift his fist up before he felt a sharp pain. Hale was trying to bend his finger back and he was doing a good job at it. Mollusc brought his fist even higher up. He grunted in pain but he was going to push past it. He'd let him have a finger. He didn't need it to kick Hale's ass. He'd swing the fist down aiming to slam it right into the ground along with Hale, hopefully, that would also get him off.
This entire fight would likely look amusing from the outside with an Arcosian essentially riding on the arm of a large Namekian trying to get him off of his arm. He had no intention of letting go of Mollusc's arm, yanking back on his finger as hard as he could, but it wasn't enough to cause anything but some pain and annoyance at best. Despite his intention not to let go, his eyes went wide as the fist as his body started to move quickly towards the ground, and his intentions didn't mean much to gravity. As the fist impacted the ground the sudden stop slung him forward, his legs releasing from Mollusc's wrist and for a moment his grip was still held on the finger, which only managed to cause him to do a forward flip completely off of his arm. Hale had nearly landed on his fist somehow, stumbling forward a few feet until he fell on his hands, pushing himself back up and quickly turning around, grinning up at the large green Namekian. This fight was getting fun, but Hale had to take stock of the situation as he couldn't simply run in and grapple him at this size.
Hale was not giving up he would give him that. Even while he was slinging his fists down he was holding on tight. When his fist impacted his Middle finger snapped back a large crack could be heard as he grunted in pain. Guess Hale dislocated his finger. Mollusc thought the fight was getting really good. He was glad he got to fight Hale. It brought him some of the passion for fighting again. A passion he had let go. Now it was back in full force. He watched as Hale was stumbling back he looked at his hand. He grabbed the middle finger. There was a pop and another groan from Mollusc as he snapped it back into place. "You really want to get your ass kicked don't you." Mollusc grinned as he charged trying to kick Hale again.
At the very least he could say he wasn't the only one enjoying this fight, and it gave Hale another new experience that he could hopefully use in the future. Wasn't often he got to fight against someone considerably larger and it forced him to have to think on his feet more than he usually would have. As Hale rolled his neck and shoulders he began to bounce on his toes to get the blood really flowing, even grinning some as he popped his finger back into place. "Sounds like that hurt a bit.", sliding a foot back and looking like an Olympic sprinter waiting in the block to take off. This giant Namekian was starting to fight more like Hale usually would, willing to charge in as many times as it took, and Hale loved it, so he couldn't simply wait but charged in towards him. As the foot came in, Hale thought about trying the same attack he did the first time but had a feeling Mollusc might have saw that coming and instead left a large footprint in the dirt as he stepped hard to the side of the incoming kick. Taking a deep breath he let out a roar much like he had at the start of the fight and aimed it right at Mollusc's leg, hoping to knock him off balance if he even managed to hit him, given how fast he had managed to dodge the last time he tried, but put some extra power behind this attack.

Hale made a note how it sounded like that hurt. "Yeah, it did. You dislocated my whole finger." Mollusc said with a groan. Guess Hale really had to rub that in a bit more. Nothing wrong with playful taunting though. Just meant he'd have to kick Hale's ass. As his leg was coming down he opened his mouth like last time. Was he about do that yelling attack agian. Mollusc used the afterimage once more like his whole body disspeared as he was a mid kick. He'd not let Hale hit him with such an attack. He'd appear into the air above as he tried to bring both feet down and crash down on top of Hale. "The first time that attacks almost caught me off guard but I was keeping my eyes open this time. Hope you don't think that was going to connect."

In similar fashion as the first attempt, his attack went through nothing but air and a false image of Mollusc left for a moment. It seemed his disappearing act was more impressive than he had thought if he could so easily dodge a stronger attack with such ease. His eyes moved around, then his head as he scanned to find where he had gone. How the hell did he lose such a large guy? Out of his periphery he saw the movement above his head and his first thought was to stand his ground and try some attempt at catching Mollusc as his dropped, but thankfully his body had a different idea. Diving out of the way he barely avoided a face full of Namekian feet and a likely bad day by just about a full second, getting back to his feet and sighing softly. "Don't go getting proud of yourself just yet. This fight just started!"
Charging straight at the large Namekian once more, he decided it was time to stop trying to dance around and fight his own fight no matter the size of the opponent. Leaping towards Mollusc's left leg he attempted to grapple it with just his arms with the intention of twisting it in an unnatural direction.
Mollusc growled in annoyance. Hale was crafty in his movements. He would be hard to catch with an attack and punish him for his sloppy but powerful attacks. Mollusc landed in the dirt breaking the ground apart as he landed. He’d look over at Hale who charged right back in. He’d watch him leap onto his leg and he began to twist it. Muscles and fibers pulled in ways they should not be pulled. Mollusc roared out in pain before his hands reached down. He attempted to literally swat Hale off with both hands and send him flying away into the ground. “Don’t go grabbing people. You might regret it!”
