Vocado grinned to himself. It'd been weeks since he'd activated the golden might of his Super Saiyan form, and already he was reminded of how good it felt. The energy flowed through him like silk, enhancing his senses and dispelling his self-doubt. This was what it meant to be a fighter! Maybe Ramen was right. Maybe his pride wasn't so far gone after all.
With little time to relish in his own strength, Vocado kept his full attention on the hole he'd sent Yogu through. The boy was furious, sending an army of Ki orbs back through the hole with immense fury. His power had diminished considerably though, meaning his fairly weak attempt was even less of a threat. Raising his hand, Vocado shouted, and dispelled the coming storm with a Kiai.
Yogu's knee landed fantastically, slamming right into his cheek and causing a massive shock-wave of energy to explode from the point of impact. It seemed like it was about to send him flying, but all it did was make him take a step back.
"You talk a lot for a dead kid."
The Super Saiyan brought his hands up to grab Yogu's knee, which he'd use to slam him right into the pavement. Should the boy find himself dug into the dirt, the once-king would jump up, and bring his boots down onto the Earthling's gut.
"TAKE THAT BASTAAARD!" Yogu's knee slammed into the Saiyan's cheek. "NOT SO TOUGH NOW, HUH BLONDIE?!" Then, the words Vocado spewed out of his mouths enraged Yogu even further. "WHAT THE HELL DID YOU JUST CALL ME?!" Then his knee gets grabbed and he's tossed right into the pavement. "BLAGH!" Yogu coughs up more blood and some vomit. He couldn't breathe. His entire body was shaking. There were goosebumps all over his body. A numbing pain was starting to spread throughout his body. And his face felt weirdly wet. Yogu touches his face and looks at what was making his face wet. It's a clear liquid. Yes, Yogu was crying too. He was crying and he hadn't even realized it. Why was he crying? Was it the intense pain, which could only be compared to when he died? Was it him coming to the realization that this was the big leagues and he wasn't anywhere close to ready? Or maybe it was the fear of death that Vocado put back into him. Ever since he came back from Heaven, he had felt like you should live your life to it's fullest, whether it's short or long, and that death isn't something to be feared. But in this one moment, he was scared. Terrified, even. As far as he knew it could be a mix of all three reasons. Then a shadow was cast on him as Vocado jumped in the air to come down on him.
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!" What was that voice in his head? It wasn't like when his Grandfather had come into his mind. (Although it is still up for debate if that actually was his grandfather.) This voice... Was his own? Something weird was going on. That thought was completely involuntary. If Yogu had to describe it, it was like a second him wandered into his mind and started screaming at him. "YOU'RE LAYING THERE AND CRYING?! WHY'RE YOU LETTING HIM TRAMPLE ALL OVER YOU?! YOU'VE GIVEN UP SO MUCH TO GET TO THIS POINT, AND NOW YOU'RE JUST LAYING THERE?!" What was happening anymore? "GET UP! YOU HAVE THE POWER TO KICK THIS GUY'S ASS, SO USE IT!" Then everything felt like slow motion. Vocado starting coming down, and he was aimed right for Yogu. "That's gonna break your spine ya know? You'll die if he lands this hit. You won't be brought back. You won't get a third chance at doing this whole living thing right. All you'll do is prove this guy right. Prove that you were nothing but some stupid kid."
Then everything started to feel very hot. Like he had his entire body pressed up against a heater. Yogu transforms, and his aura immediately disappears. In its stead is an intense constant blast of burning hot air. Small pieces of his skin had started to flake off too, revealing a hard material, similar to a carapace. Then, without skipping a beat, Yogu grabs on the Saiyan's ankles.
A primal roar erupts from Yogu and he slams Vocado into the pavement. If he succeeds, Yogu slams the Super Saiyan so hard he bounces off the solid road and then the enraged Konatsian's fists become a blur as they slam into the Once-king again and again. "I'M NOT SOME KID ANYMORE! GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAYYYYY!" Yogu's barrage of punches ends with him pulling back and throwing one final fist at the ascended Saiyan's face, trying to knock him through a building. OOC: Yogu taps into a new level of strength with [UT] RAGING POWER! after his transformation into his Konatsian Spirit form. His PL is now 410,900/102,725
It wasn't often that Vocado was surprised by someone's true strength. Saiyans usually had access to Oozaru in some form or another, and Arcosians had so many forms it was hard to keep track. Fighting both of those species so often made him hard to trick when it came to surprise power-ups. This kid, though? Vocado was so certain he'd reached his limit, and yet here he was, exploding with... Heat.
The Earthling grabbed Vocado's ankles easily, repaying the once-king for his attack by slamming him into the very same pavement. The strike was fierce, enough so that the Super Saiyan bounced off the ground like a basketball. In the moments following, Yogu landed a near-endless barrage of punches, ending in one very solid, very strong strike to the face.
Vocado groaned in pain, spinning like a top through the air as he made his way toward some high-rise without a name. Before he made impact though, he stopped himself, a burst of Kiai escaping his body to halt his momentum on a dime.
With a sigh of relief, Vocado righted himself, shaking his head as he did so. He was mere inches away from plowing through about twenty rooms, if not more. Clearly this kid was tough, that was certain, but his temper tantrum wasn't going to last forever.
"I must admit you've got spunk. Training in the Afterlife must have given you quite the confidence boost, too." Vocado's body suddenly vanished, before re-appearing in front of Yogu. He aimed to deliver a crushing blow to Yogu's stomach, hoping to end the fight with this last strike. "You've got a long way to go before you'll be anything more than 'just some kid'."
KP: 5/7 Used [SIG] Super Instinct to appear in front of Yogu! 1 Charge of Super Instinct remains for this thread. Used [UA2] Savage Salvo! 66% Power for a damage potential of: 1,188,000! Intent: KO
Yogu still wasn't quite sure what was happening right now. All he knew is that this was just the strength boost he needed, and it felt gooood. Vocado seemed just as confused, if not more. "Ya know, I expected a lot more from a guy who was the King of an entire planet." The deformed Konatsian Yogu cracks his knuckles as he gets ready to unleash his barrage of punches. "I guess I should thank you for this though. You just pushed me way past my limit and helped me unlock some new strength." Yogu takes another step forward towards the Saiyan. "That's not gonna save you from your beatdown though, YOU BASTARD!" Yogu unleashes that barrage and sends the Saiyan flying!
"TAKE THAT YOU SAIYAN SHITHEAD!" That bastard was going to go straight through that building! "HAHAHA- ...WHAT?!" The former King of Vegeta stops right before he slams through the wall. "Ya shoulda let yourself get blasted through that building, THEN YOU MIGHT'VE HAD A CHANCE TO GET AWAY WITH YOUR LIFE!" Yogu begins to charge and attack. Not just any attack, this attack was gonna be BIG. "YA READY TO DIE, BLONDIE?!" Then Vocado disappeared from Yogu's view. "WHERE THE HELL DID YOU GO?!" Then he reappears right in front of him. "SHIT!" Before the corrupted Konatsian could react, the Super Saiyan slams his fist right into Yogu's stomach. He doesn't even make a sound, he just crumples into a pile on the Saiyan's fist. If there was even a little bit more power behind that attack, Yogu would be dead for sure.
"N... NO!" Even though all of Yogu's power was gone and he was reduced back to his base form, he manages to stay awake for a second or two longer. He slams his hand onto Vocado's shoulder and grabs onto it with an iron grip. "Listen..." As he talks, waves and waves of blood keep falling from his mouth. His ribs were stabbing into himself, and he was very lucky they hadn't pierced a lung yet. "When I wake up... I'm gonna find you bastards... And find out what the hell's goin- ON!" His ribs just definitely stabbed into something they shouldn't have. His vision was starting to darken and everything was tinted red. That was probably because the blood he was vomiting up had partially washed into his eyes. Oh well. "I... Ain't gonna stay on the sidelines much longer... Bastard..." Then he finally collapses in a puddle of his own blood. THREAD EXIT but Yogu's laying in the street bleeding out.
The fight ended quickly, as Vocado had hoped. Even still, with the last of his strength, Yogu made the once-king a promise. He'd find them one day, and get the truth out of this situation. Vocado stared at the Earthling with a cocked eyebrow. Surely this kid was a fan of the dramatic arts. Seriously, where'd he get these lines: a 3rd grade play? As Yogu collasped, the Prince rolled his eyes.
With a quick motion, he lifted Yogu onto his shoulder and floated straight for the nearest hospital. Whether or not he survived, the once-king didn't much care, but putting in the effort made him feel less like an asshole.
In the back of his mind, he subtly did hope the kid made some progress. Fighting him on equal terms sounded interesting. The Super Saiyan form was far from infallible, as the history books were oft too eager to ignore on his homeworld. There were Namekians and Earthlings and machines who rivaled far greater Saiyans than Vocado in ages long since past.
Kicking off the ground, Vocado doubled-back, looking to regroup with Kalabas and Tarch. They needed to figure out the next step in their journey, after all. Exit as well. Hopeful for a round 2 soon!
