Kabe had managed to slip away from the bulbous colorful watch keeper that was Uria, the Durian that Kayen had placed in charge of the devourer prince in her stead. Thousands of miles away after blasting off at ludicrous speed, Kabe skidded to a halt in the dirty backstreets of a village in the west. On his way in, he'd past a road sign he couldn't read. Walking the streets, Kabe found himself sniffing at the air.
He smelled something... sweet. Something tasty, yes! Kabe followed the trail of scent through the streets like a police dog on a mission, and found himself ending up out front of some flashy pink building filled to the brim with treats and candy! Walking in, Kabe found himself near-foaming at the mouth as it watered over the countless candy sweets that surrounded him. The odor of sugar and nectar was so strong he thought he might die! Snatching something from the shelf, he moved to stick it in his mouth.
"Kid, you gonna pay for that?" Kabe's head snapped to the side, wide-eyed and curling back with the food pressed to his back, like a deer in headlights or a beast caught by a hunter in the midst of his morning meal. A large green-skinned man with glasses and a mottled white bristle of a beard strapped across his chin. "whaaa?" He mumbled softly, his eyes narrowing as the brenchian shop keep walked over and crouched down, hold his palm out before the little saiyan.
"If you ain't paying kiddo, I'm gonna need that back." Kabe was confused. He'd never... 'pay' for something before. In the palace, he took whatever food he wanted. Was it like those people on Vegeta that he would take food from and they'd get mad and chase him? Kabe had the strongest mom in the universe now though, so he could eat whatever and nobody would say anything, right? Sticking the candy treat into his mouth, Kabe scowled at the man, who looked stiff and agitated. "No!! Foohd fohr Kahbeh, noht yous!" He spoke as he chewed away at the thick gummy, and he reached for another candy from the shelf.
Kabe growled, as the brenchian slapped hard at his wrist, knocking it away from the food. Kabe's eyes were burning into him now, his little blood boiling, steam near coming out his ears from how fuming he was. He swallowed the chunky gummy hard in one swoop. "KABE. SAID. MINE." He stomped, the crescent medallion dimly glowing as it thrashed in the wind kicking up around Kabe. He reached again, clutching the food in his hand. Worriedly, the brenchian grabbed his wrist hard this time. Nervously, he explained. "Listen kid, you- you just can't take things. You gotsta pay like e'ry body else."
Without thought, Kabe's aura flared up and set the store aglow, his fist moving to strike the man between the ribs and knock him across the room. "KABE FOOD.!" He shouted now, and the medallion around his neck began to glow once more... but, differently. Red. A small pod floated in the air above the street, beaming energy directly to the medallion. His body filled, and his eyes rolled over to the whites.
In the streets, passersby felt a rumbling. Frantically they ran for cover, only for a monstrous shadow to cast itself through the roads nearby. Twice the size of the houses and shops, a lumbering monster stood in the streets, gorging itself on wagon-sized fistfuls of candy and debris from some shop that had exploded. Four handfuls in, this ran out. Roaring in furious hunger to the skies, the monster began it's rampage through the streets, clutching a screaming woman and moving her towards it's bloody maw.

After buying all the scorpion bait - or rather the pounds of food for luring Scorpo out - the other day in Central City, Ronin had set off toward the Western Verge. Yet as the night sky came and the familiar moon grew larger and its power radiated, his trip was interrupted by something he had only heard of in fantastical tales. Even riding atop a similar fairy tale, his Nimbus was nothing in comparison to what he witnessed rampaging in the streets of Ginger Town.
But as the carnage unfolded and a woman neared her death, the cloud zipped its way on over and Sashouka's entire body erupting with the ki he had been holding deep within him for so long. The fiery glow of his inner spirit, the warrior's edge. Yet now, it was restrained. Now it was something he wielded as a weapon to push his body to its limits. Kabe's victim drew closer to consumption by every moment yet so too did the martial artist. Ronin leaped from his cloud and sailed through the air freely, no sort of control beyond his own initial jump to steer with. Even if he lacked the ability to fly, watching some monster kill innocents wasn't something his pride as a warrior could withstand. If he couldn't protect people from this, there was no way to keep his tribe from disaster. All the conflict from over a year ago had led to the deaths and disappearances of too many he knew; now, Sashouka landed on a nearby building with his resolve hardened and eyes open. The tribal guardian's backpack slapped into the rooftop as he dropped it, knowing he needed to fight without any room for being off-balance.
"You beast... you're quite large. That'll make things a bit easier; I don't have to aim that hard, do I?" The martial artist opened his right hand and snatched his wrist as the ki orb formed, its color and hue shifting to deep purple before it began sparking and growing unstable. "But I need to be certain that you aren't too strong... Stinging Ball!"
His sash billowed and he released the orb with a powerful throw, shifting his pointer finger and middle-finger up and down. Although he had just appeared and was some distance away, he could see the head of Kabe over a nearby building; the orb arced upward over the lip of the building and then, with his fingers drop, dive-bombed toward Kabe's head. But his attack wasn't without issue; his mind raced with facing the reality of his situation, remembering the last times he fought against people who weren't this size or vicious.
This building should give me some cover, for now, and this attack may very well stun this massive monkey. That woman will be safe... but can I really beat this thing? The monster's tail looks like that of the saiyans. Every time I fight them... they always seem so damn tough. If I can at least tire it out or hold it off, maybe the town will be able to find a way to contain him. Or another strong warrior will show up. If this is the very least... then I must at least try!

Greedily, the beastly ape ran his monstrous tongue through his jagged teeth, his maw opened wide as sickly drool dribbled out, sloshing over the face of the poor panicked woman. With devilish grin, a wicked chortle blurted from the great ape's mouth as it slapped the woman towards it's open mouth in hungry wait.
Suddenly, a burning sensation sizzled atop his furry head, and his hand spasmed to release the girl to the floor. Jerking to look upwards, the monster found no source of it's pain. Patting at the stinging pain atop it's head, it turned toward the direction it had heard a whoosh from before the orb had stung it. "GRAAARAHGHHH!!!" The beast roared, unleashing a mighty blast of energy in the direction, wide enough to blast through several buildings in a blinding cone of destructive energy.
That would kill the nuisance! Even if it didn't the food would be easier to pick at.

Sashouka's attack connecting didn't give him very long to celebrate; the beast immediately retaliated as if his attack had been no more than a pest. The warrior in him screamed to go all out and, for once, he agreed; getting hit by this kind of an attack so early in wasn't an option. Multiple buildings were being blown away and countless lives were being lost; if he blocked, it would only keep going. Even if he survived this attack, too many would end up dead. Ronin stepped forward and pointed, feeling the ki gathering near his mouth with his more-than-familiar attack. It had been a long time since he was forced to use his strongest move... but he relished the opportunity to get to use it after all of his isolation. This would give him a chance to see if he really was so weak... or if all of his self-doubting and hounded pursuit of power was truly worth it.
"Not bad," he growled, ki sparking as his finger raised to hover in front of his lips. "But I won't allow you to do whatever you want! Ki Scream Cann-ON!"
His yell roared over the deafening beam racing right toward him, defiantly cutting through the noise. The massive attack's width shuddered and vanished as its core met with an unstoppable force; the ki pinpointed at the end of his finger. A small discus that continued growing and halting the massive attack so that its stray energy raced around and cracked away at the rooftop around Ronin. It was weathering the massive power load, holding it and drawing all of its power inward in a hungry battle of combative energies.
Until Sashouka's attack finally broke it.
In an instant, the massive beam was pushed back; a new red beam illuminated the shattered bloc and its rubble, coursing and pulsing as it cracked and roared its way through the air. Even though it had been weakened pushing its way through the monkey's attack, it still hummed with a charge. If it could connect, Sashouka knew the drill; it would cause far more than a shocking field. This attack caused rippling explosions normally, so even in its weakened state it should be ample enough to give the monster another rude shaking. Ronin's body ached from maintaining his transformation but he had chosen to fight. The doubt was washing away from his demeanor and his eyes were blazing as his combat senses were coming back. All the fights since his return had been ones where he hadn't resolved himself to trying. But right now, he had one goal.
Beat this thing... prove to yourself that you can do more!

The wide light of the blast lit up the beast's vision, and he took a thundering step toward where he'd blasted hungry for more- but after a few seconds, the red light began to swell like a blistering glossy balloon and popped, flowing back like splatters of raw, viscous red energy that burned with furious intention. Like a splash of acid, the red beam half-ruptured by the wave it had collidede with washed over the ape, who raised a palm in front of it's face to lessen the pain.
Shaking the palm as it stung, the ape threw it's head back, the matted fur mop imitating it's prior hair flicking backward with force enough that the great beast needed to stagger backward a few steps. Thrashing about, he slapped his trembling palm downward, tearing through a small building with ease. Raising up, the monster Kabe had became trained his eyes onto the thing that had caused this stinging with bestial anger that burned at the soul.
Were it not for the obvious several story tall primate raging toward some mighty would-be hero, the people of Ginger Town might think there was an earthquake happening with how tremendously the ground beneath them shook. Stomping, chasing down his prey like a starved fox tails a wounded chicken, the beast leaped into the air and slammed a might fist down to try and punch the flea-like fighter through the building it had just saved from destruction.

More success had been bolstering Ronin's confidence; despite the size discrepancy, this bestial titan was something he harmed not once but twice. His attacks were both working and pushing it back... and now it was rushing to fight him. For the first time in months, that spark of fighting was almost impossible to contain or withhold. Sashouka smiled, ignoring all the damage around them and focusing on the massive giant. The martial artist inside him was coming out... so rather than throwing another ki attack to disengage it, he leaped forward to meet the giant monkey with his leg pulling back.
This creature's style... it reminds me of the saiyans I've fought too... what's going on here? If I can't beat this thing faster, this rampaging energy could hurt me. But if this is somehow a person, too... is this form hurting them?
Back-flipping and kicking upward, Ronin's foot met the giant's fist... and pushed him back. The weight of the monkey had been enough to carry them given their strength felt matched, dropping them toward the building rapidly; Sashouka reached out and planted his palms against the roof, feeling it crack and strain as he pushed back and tried to continue halting them. The building suffered damage and debris started to fall from its walls, yet it withstood the attack. His hair snapped free and his eyes opened wider, ki flooding freely into the air and Sashouka shoving the hand away and rolling backward.
"Not a bad idea there," he paused, stopping on his feet to drop into a low squat. "But how can you hope to beat me with such blind, unfocused rage? You're so reliant on your instincts... it reminds me a lot of how I used to be!"
Once more he jumped forward, the force of it shattering and blowing a large hole in the roof beneath him to rapidly launch himself at Kabe. The kick had been better for stopping and redirecting energy with his hands across the surface but now the raging energy in him needed a better transfer. Ronin soared toward Kabe and clasped his hands together, swinging their combined weight to throw himself around into a mid-air tackle. Using his entire body as a weapon - specifically his weight - could greatly enhance his ability to strike. Throwing a punch or kick could deal damage... but using himself as a projectile? He was hoping to smash this primate in the stomach and give it something to remember...
Sashouka does not use a technique; maintains Intense Struggle. Current PL: 42,000 KP: 3/7 -> 3/7, 1 more turn before next KP.
