EVERYONE AND THEIR BROTHER
CHROMO'S PL: 50,000 (SUPPRESSION || 152k BASE)
Chromo's claws dug through Namek's earth like knives through butter. Torrents of dirt had piled into still-growing towers as the beetle burrowed. Placed out of the muddy fire was a small radar beside some bushes, emitting continuous, rapid beeps. "Come on, come onnnnn!" Chromo growled. He could feel his heart pounding out of his chest. He had to be right on top of one of the last Dragon Balls! He was so close- inches away! He had to be!
His talons stuck something hard. A resounding clang, reminiscent of a bell's toll, echoed through his ears. He pushed more dirt and rock away, letting the sprinkles of sunlight glint across the amber surface of a Dragon Ball. Six Stars glimmered just as stunningly as those in Earth's night sky. "YES! YES YES YES-- I-I-I DID IT!! I DID IT!!!" Chromo could have cried right then and there. The bug bounced up and down in joy- he hadn't been this happy in ages,! Claws wrapped around the exposed surface of the Dragon Ball, ravenously tugging at the orb that was lodged in the dirt. It was really stuck in there... Chromo snarled again as he strained his muscles, raising his once-suppressed power to yank the sphere right out of it's rocky prison.
With his increased power, the Dragon Ball flew out and into his claws like a glove... before the laws of motion sent it flying upwards when his grip slipped. Chromo yelped in shock, but quickly crawled out of hiding to pursue his prize. It couldn't have gotten far, right!?
Lo and behold, he caught sight of an orange sparkle falling from the skies to land atop a nearby hill. With his target locked, Chromo chirped in glee as he climbed upwards, skidding closer and closer to the Six-Star Dragon Ball. With one last, well-timed hop, his claw extended across the hill's cliff-like edge he'd been scaling to firmly grasp the top of the Dragon Ball...
...That was strange. He didn't remember the Dragon Ball feeling this much like someone else's hand.
