It came as some surprise that Leech was able to grab onto Ticoga's leg, even as the Arcosian rammed them both through several feet of solid rock. But the instant Leech's fist blazed with Ki again, Ticoga was ready for it. This time, when Leech's punch lands, there is a thunder as the blow hits it's mark, as well as a burst of air from the sheer force of the attack. But, unlike last time, Ticoga doesn't budge.
"I believe I told you that attack wouldn't work a second time." Ticoga says to Leech. Indeed, Ticoga's readiness for the blow rendered it completely useless. Ticoga's hands would shoot forward, attempting to grab Leech by the shoulders, followed quickly by Ticoga's forehead, aiming to ram it against Leech's face!
The Arcosian follows this up by twisting his body, using his long tail to aim a whipping blow to Leeches right shoulder, trying to knock the alien away as for the second time, a crimson ball of crackling Ki forms in his right hand. Ticoga hurls the ball straight at Leech, intending to punish the alien for failing to listen to he warning before!
Leech's attack: 10,725 PL
Ticoga's defense - Wall of defiance stops 17,152 PL damage!
Wall of Defiance blocks Leech's attack, with no bleed through damage.
Due to my mistake, Ticoga's A1 has been reduced to a non PL damaging blast.

Leech grinned as he threw his blow forward but Ticoga just tanked his blows with what seemed to be pure brawn. Anny glanced (That like when Kayen was just tanking his attacks expect I think he did something I sensed his ki spike up. This guy not only got offensive skill but defensively he knows how to fight too). Anny placed a palm under her chin as she watched the fight carefully. She was pretty sure she may need to step in soon. Especially if this guy was going to try to force them to work for him. She was not keen to really work for this guy at least yet. She liked her freedom a lot but considering how strong people seemed to be eventually she knew they'd have to pick aside. When they did she planned to pick the winning side for herself and her brother.
Leech was left stunned as Ticoga hand grabbed his shoulder. Ticoga head slammed into his face as his head was sent backward. "Guah." Leech staggered back but the hand kept him from flying back. Then Ticoga tail slammed him into his side sending him flying. (Shit this ain't going in my favor) Leech was pretty sure he was getting his ass kicked. But he knew he had gotten stronger. Was this all he could muster agiasnt this guy? There has to be some way to get past his iron guard.) Leech eyes widened as he realized what he needed to do. Leech slammed his feet down to stop himself as the ki ball from Ticoga flew at him. Leech pulled both arms back and swung them at the ball of Ki. Ki surrounded his fist as the ground behind him began to crack and the ball of ki began to overwhelm him. But he managed to slam him with both arms causing it to fly into the air and explode. His arms were steaming and hurt though so he didn't move forward. He just focused on recovering some Ki and some sense of direction.

Ticoga plants his feet on the ground, and rises to his full height. Rather than press his advantage, Ticoga stops to watch Leech's struggle - and is not disappointed. Leech's willpower shines through his foolish demeanor, managing to not only catch, but throw Ticoga's Ki ball away from himself with great effort on his part. The Ki ball detonates high in the sky, briefly lighting the area with a crimson flash. The thunderous explosion makes the ground quake for but a moment, as a nearby lightning strike would shake a house, but the chaos of the explosion quickly ends, leaving Ticoga watching his opponent.
Crossing his arms over his chest, Ticoga smiles in Leech's direction.
"Oh ho! Not bad, Leech." the Arcosian mutters, impressed. While the blast wasn't his strongest, it certainly hadn't been a weak one. This alien was proving to be a very persistent warrior. Even if he was brash, the natural ability is there. With training and focus, this being could be quite a formidable fighter.
Ticoga steals a glance at Anny. She held the same battle power as Leech, but seemed to be more level headed and calm. Between the two, Ticoga surmises that she probably has even more potential than her brother. Ticoga looks back at Leech - if this fight went on too much longer, he may end up unintentionally harming Leech, which is not the purpose here. At least, it's not his purpose.
"Leech, you can stand down, if you think this is getting too hard on you." Ticoga calls over to the alien, straightening his posture. "There's no shame in recognizing when one can't win a fight. I'd rather not accidentally hurt you; this is a spar, not a battle, after all."
Leech breathed on his hand as they steamed from the impact. "Your tough as hell." Leech said cracking his neck. This was a really good fight but he wanted to win. Was that so hard for him to ask. He had fun fighting when it was just for kicks but he wanted to win a spar every once in a while. He had been getting his ass kicked a lot since he came to the North galaxy. But this was his time to win. He had a perfect move to take this guy down. Leech pushed himself up getting into stance as Ticoga began to speak on how he could stand down and give up. "See I ain't the type to give up. I got a hard head. I keep moving no matter how strong my foe is. That just how I fight. My sister is the brains and I am the brawn. So unless she yells for me to get back here then I ain't moving an inch." Anny frowned. She wanted to tell him to go back but she could feel how Leech wanted this. She nodded to Leech. "Give him your best shot." Leech grinned. That was all he needed. Leech motioned for Ticoga to come. "Let's see what you got." Leech grin widened as he waited for Ticoga attack.

"Ahhh, so you're the stubborn type. Nothing wrong with that." Ticoga replies, letting his arms fall slowly to his sides. "I can certainly relate to that. Very well then. We can continue. It is not my intention to kill you, so... You there, Anny, was it?"
Ticoga gestures at her with a glance.
"I grant you permission to intervene if you believe your brother is in mortal peril." Ticoga offers. "I'd like to not let it get that far, but my power grows more difficult to manage the further I transform. I'll leave your brother's safety in your hands."
With that, vicious swirl of crimson and black Ki explodes all around Ticoga, with the Arcosian growling as he focuses his power. Once at an acceptable level, Ticoga rockets towards Leech, his fists at the ready. Once within reach, Ticoga engages Leech with another flurry of chops, elbows, and knee strikes! If Leech was too stubborn to stand down, then Ticoga would just have to exhaust the being!
Leech nodded as Ticoga seemed fine with keeping up with his fight. That was perfect he could spring his trap on the Aroscian right now. He was going to rush right in and be hit by his strongest attack. His fist glowed with Ki. Anny nodded to Ticoga. "Thank you don't worry I'd only step in to protect him. He is tough unless you try to kill him I don't think you will." Anny at least hoped so. She really didn't want to step in. This guy was pretty nice at least. He was holding back and trying to keep it cool. He even said he could transform more. Anny paused glancing at Leech. That meant Ticoga was not at his highest level. That meant whatever Leech was planning was fucked. "Leech it is not gonna work!" Anny yelled as Leech grinned "Don't worry I got this." He thought (Even if can transform can he transform before I knock him out?) Leech wondered as he waited.
Ticoga blasted towards him as two more arms burst out of Leech back. All four arms were covered by violent yellow ki. He was rushing right in with a barrage of blows that was perfect. Leech two arms forward to grab his arm and to try to hold him in place. "Too bad. I still have my trump card." His powerlevel flared up as his Vigor and grit pushed through. His two other arms pulled back as the ki surrounded them. Both blasted forward aiming to slam right into Ticoga chest and knock the wind out of him and maybe even knock him out? Leech would not know until he tried. Anny glanced. (So he using our special ability. Gathering the energy of our fusion in a single attack. I wonder if it is enough to beat this guy?) Anny said glancing down worried for her brother but she had a bit of confidence. This attack he was unleashing was well over his base it was even higher then Ticoga current powerlevel. It might just have a chance of working.

Ticoga's rush was immediately halted by Leech, his power suddenly skyrocketing! The Arcosian is surprised to see two extra arms rise forth, surrounded with Ki, and realized that he had only a split second to brace himself for the incoming blow! Ticoga's aura flares violently just before Leech's blows land, but though Ticoga was successful in preparing his body, the Arcosion could not stop all of the power surging against him.
The force of the blow crushes Ticoga against the ground, up-heaving the stony land with a fissure that spider webs outwards from the point of impact. For a moment, Ticoga remains still, but after a few more moments, Leech would hear a muffled chuckling. Ticoga, still chuckling, rises from the fissure, wiping blood from his mouth and nose. The hit, despite being braced against, was still harmful. It certainly held its point.
"MOST impressive, Leech. I wasn't expecting that kind of power at all." Ticoga compliments the alien, grinning despite the blood trickling from the corner of his mouth. "Here I thought I was too strong for you, but this certainly proved me wrong. Please, forgive my arrogance. I should not have underestimated you."
Ticoga suddenly flies backwards, landing on a large boulder some ways away, but still within earshot.
"It would be quite rude of me to not show you consideration after that display of might." Ticoga continues. The ground begins to quiver, and Ticoga's power begins rising rapidly. His body tenses, and his grin widens. "I'll reward you for teaching me humility, by showing you my second transformation. Forgive me if I seem unforgiving in this form, I struggle to contain it's power."
The boulder under Ticoga's feet suddenly shatters as Ticoga's Ki skyrockets, and the Arcosian lets out a thunderous roar. He leans forward, and spikes jut out from his back suddenly! Beneath the bioarmor loops around his shoulders, the biogems stretch outward, creating a secondary cover over his shoulders.
Groaning as though in pain, Ticoga's skull begins to elongate! All the while during this horrific transformation, Ticoga's voice sputters and groans, but his power continues to climb! Soon though, his Ki explodes, blasting away the land around him in a blinding flash of red. The light quickly fades, and standing in the center of a fresh new crater could only be described as a monster.
"Haaaahhh... There... Sorry for the wait, Leech, I hope you are not disappointed. This is your reward, pushing me to transform like this." Ticoga tells Leech. "Just in case you have any more tricks up your sleeve, know that I have one more transformation beyond this one. Let us see if you can push me that much farther!!"
With a burst of incredible speed, Ticoga rockets at Leech, and swings his right knee up at Leech's stomach, following it up with a vicious left elbow aimed at his chin!
((Thank you Kingarusu for the help correcting my misunderstanding of how Health works!)) First Attack
10,725/51,976=.0206 (Rounded up to 21%)
So, Racial first Supremacy (Does not use KP, can only be used once per thread):
65,000 x .33 = 21,450
65,000 - 21,450 = 43,550
Next is Wall of Defiance (Uses 1 KP):
51,976 x .33 = 17,152
43,550 - 17,152 = 26,398
26,398 /51,976=0.507 (Rounded up to 51 Percent)
Total:72 Percent Damage (72/300)
Ticoga has assumed his Monster Form! New Stats: PL: 103,952 HP: 72/300 KP 2/3
Leech's blow flew toward and sending Ticoga flying with the pure force of his attack. Leech grinned as wide as he could. He had hit him dead on. He was done for. Anny closed her eyes. She had sensed Ticoga raised his powerlevel with what seemed to be a barrier? That was Anny best guess. Ticoga was able to block most of the damage and she knew that was Leech's best attack. He had nothing else to offer Ticoga with his current power. It seemed this fight was going to end sooner rather than later.
Leech grin faded as he heard the laugh of Ticoga. "What?" Leech looked towards the rubble confused. What had happened? How could he have taken that attack? He didn't understand what had happened. Ticoga was impressed by his power but Leech didn't care. He didn't want people to say he was impressed he wanted them to be knocked out. Guess he was glad this guy recognized he was strong but now this talk about showing him his second transformation. "Wait you got a second?" Leech blinked. And how he said he had a feeling it was more than two. Leech took his fighting stance. He just was going to assume it was a bluff until proven otherwise. Then Ticoga proved it otherwise as he began to power up. He covered his face as Ticoga began to expand into a new monstrous form. Anny could pick up Ticoga powerlevel which was increasing to almost <100,000> that was about as strong as Kayen was when they meet her.
Leech could not sense ki but even could tell this was bad news. Now he looked bigger and stronger. Before he was already struggling to keep up with Ticoga with his lack of skill and his lower power. Now, this guy had gotten stronger! Leech kinda knew where this was going but he didn't want to give up. He wanted to keep fighting and he wanted to beat this guy. Then this guy confirmed that he had another transformation after this so even if he somehow got past this form he could get even stronger. "Well, let's see if this is just a trick or a real power-up," Leech said with the first hint of shaky confidence in his chances to beat Ticoga. He was not even able to react to the knee to the gut that Ticoga launched at him. (What I didn't even see him) Leech coughed out as Ticoga elbow slammed into his chin sending him flying. He flew through the air before ki surrounded him. He stopped himself mid-air as blood came from his mouth. Leech growled and launched himself at Ticoga. He threw a barrage of punches at Ticoga with his four arms just trying to land something that would deal damage on the Arosican.
Last Edit: Aug 17, 2020 16:36:10 GMT -6 by hirudinea: added color coat
Ticoga's blows connected viciously, but Leech still seemed intent on pushing himself despite the new disparity between their battle powers. Leech launches forward, putting Ticoga on his guard. But for every attack thrown, Ticoga was either able to weave out of the way, or catch the blows in his palms. After a few moments of this, Ticoga's grin becomes a frown.
((What is this?)) Ticoga thinks, dodging Leech's attacks. ((This isn't the power he just presented to me... Is he taking me for a fool?))
Ticoga grinned, as if he'd figured something out. There were historically beings that could hide their true battle power from detection, even from scouters. This must be one of those situations - Leech and Anny must be hiding their true power, and Ticoga had fallen for the trick.
"Oh ho ho, you want to lull me into that trap a second time, do you?" Ticoga chuckles, back peddling. "Sorry, I'm a quick learner, Leech."
With that, the monstrous Arcosian would charge at Leech, suddenly coming to a stop in front of Leech! He raises his right hand at level with Leech's chest, and a beach ball sized ball of crimson Ki quickly expands.
"Show me that power, don't pretend you don't have it in you!" Ticoga roars, unleashing the Ki ball at point blank range!
Ticoga uses A1 - Shatter Sphere, dealing 33% of his PL! 34,304 PL of damage incoming! Cost: 1KP
Leech fired his punches at Ticoga but they did very little. He was able to block and dodge all his blows. What did he need to do to hit this guy? Leech didn't know but he had to figure out a way to beat him. He didn't want to lose. Anny stepped up from where she was sitting. She could sense how much Leech wanted to win this. She really didn't want to fight but at the same time could she just stand there and let him fight alone. Anny glanced up and yelled. "Leech! Tag out!" Leech looked confused. "No, I wanna stay in." He threw another punch as Ticoga seemed to think he was holding back. Sadly he could only use that little move he used once.
Leech was left shocked as Ticoga rushed in as ki formed in his hand and he fired the ball point-blank at him. Leech couldn't do much as he closed his eyes (This is about to hurt). From Below Anny punched the ball blasting it high into the sky. It spun wildly into the air above and exploded. Leech leaped back as Anny landed and yelled to Ticoga. "Sorry I am jumping in." She glanced at Leech. "Plus if you wanna see our real power I am feeling up for it?" Leech glanced. "You mean to fight as one?" Anny nodded. "Yah but I swear you owe me one. I saw that you really wanted to win for this one time I'll help you with one of your dumb fucking fights." Leech grinned as he grabbed his Sister's hand. "Let's go." Anny nodded. Both their auras exploded as the two vanished a large burst of smoke filling the area between the two. When the smoke cleared they were now one being. "Alright, Ticoga are you ready to face Hirudinea!" They pointed at Ticoga grinning then taking a calm and collected pose.
Anny has jumped in! [MA3] Ultra Bruta Swing: Through proper Ki Manipulation, you have gained the ability to supercharge your melee attacks with Ki! The melee attack can be flavored however you like, and mechanically functions identically to a ranged technique. Deals 100% of your current PL in damage. Powerlevel:32,500.

Leech and Anny Remerged meaning Leech loses his 1 kp (Multiform lowest kp form is what it goes down too)

It came as quite the surprise when his attack was knocked skyward. The Shatter Sphere detonated in the sky with enough force to quake the ground beneath their feet - which certainly would have been problematic for Leech had the attack been successful. But somehow, Anny managed to slip in and under Ticoga's reach to defend her brother. Perhaps Leech was at his limit after all.
Before Ticoga decides to call off the fight, Anny and Leech show a mutual interest in the fight - something Ticoga had warned them about before hand. But they didn't really seem to be after his life, so he forgives the transgression. Their words catch the Arcosian's attention.
"As one..?" Ticoga repeats, more to himself than to them. The two had hastily put distance between them and he, but it was a distance Ticoga knew he could close within the blink of an eye. But rather than interrupt the pair, Ticoga shrugs. "I would think that your brother had something to prove - after all, he challenged me to this bout. But if you two feel that this is necessary, then by all means."
Ticoga watches, and his eyes widen somewhat as the pair begin to shine with a bright light, and move into one another. The light flashes ever brighter, before eventually fading. Now, a new being stood before Ticoga - a confident one at that.
"So... you merged..." Ticoga surmises, thinking about how to approach the battle. "Hmm... no... Even combined together, I should assume that you can raise your power ever farther. Therefore... yes, I think this is an opportunity to truly test myself."
Ticoga straightens his posture, curling his hands to fists.
"I could continue on with this form, but I feel that it may not be prudent to do so." Ticoga continues. Once more, his aura flares. Electricity dances along his form and throughout his aura, and the ground begins to quake endlessly. "Forgive me... I have not had an opportunity... to know the limits of my True Form. KUUUAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!"
As if Ticoga's body were a shell, glowing lines like cracks across a salt wasteland tear across the Arcosian's body as his Ki continues to climb ever higher! Bolts of lightning hew through stone and sear jagged lines across the ground, and the rumbling quake of the ground intensifies. Soon, nearly all of Ticoga's body is covered by the glowing jagged cracks, and his swirling Ki erupts like a volcanic blast! Ticoga's skin seems to actually shatter in the explosion, throwing smoke, dust, and molten debris through the air.
The wind soon blows away the smoke, and Ticoga stands, at last in his true form.
"...Now then. Hirudinea... Let's see what you've got to offer." Ticoga says, issuing his challenge. Smiling, Ticoga raises his left hand, and once more that dangerous crimson ball of Ki balloons in front of his palm. Ticoga's eyes narrow, and the ball seemingly rockets towards Hirudinea of its own volition - even faster than it had in Ticoga's previous forms!
Ticoga has transformed into his True Form!! Ticoga uses A1 - Shatter Sphere, dealing 33% of his PL!
The two fused as Hirrudinea rubbed his chin. "Well, we look pretty good." They looked at themselves before glancing up at Ticoga as he made the point that most likely they had another level after this. That was true but they were not going to share that. They were hoping that he didn't power up even more but Ticoga seemed to really want to show his true power. Ticoga powered up his energy flaring to life. They could sense Ticoga power increasing by a great deal. It went from a little over <100,000> to nearly <150,000>. That was not good at all. Hirudinea covered there face as they looked up at Ticoga. "That not good you really know how to steal a show. We'd show you all our power but were a bit out of juice. So we can't power up just yet so you will have to deal with this." Hirudinea said though internally they were sweating. They needed time to regain their strength.
Of course, it'd not be that easy to regain their strength as Ticoga fired a powerful crimson ball of energy down at them. Hirudinea crossed all four arms above their head as the blast came down blowing away the area around them "GAUHAHAHAH!" Hirudinea was sent flying as they glowed slightly. They were going split again. But they managed to keep it together as they were sent through the rock after rock. They finally stopped after slamming into a particularly sturdy rock. Where they had stood before was now a massive crater. "OUCH!" Hirudinea yelled out as they couldn't even get up just yet. That attack really took the wind out of them. This was not good it was going to give Ticoga a free opening to late waste to them. They needed to stall for some time. Maybe that ki blast took a lot of Ticoga? They knew he had used a lot of strong attacks so hopefully, he didn't have a chance to pounce and end this fight before it really got started.
Ouch! Took the Shattering Sphere head on for 85 Percent Damage! Damn that is Brutal! Since It goes to highest damage from before Hirudinea is already at 52 Percent. 52+85=137 Percent. Hirudinea is reeling.
Kp:1/3 (+1 Regnerated)
Last Edit: Aug 17, 2020 22:29:19 GMT -6 by hirudinea: added color coat
Ticoga blinks in surprise, and looks at his palm - he hadn't expected the blast to cause that much damage! After all, this was the first time he'd taken on this form since he was far younger. The crimson Arcosian, looks over, spotting Hirudinea in the distance. He'd watched the fused being smash through several pillars from the force of the explosion, but this was more than Ticoga thought would happen.
He considers once again whether or not to call off the fight; Hirudinea appeared to potentially be hurt. But Ticoga eschews the thought - Hirudinea was created because Leech and Anny wanted to prove themselves in this fight. But prove themselves in what regard, the Arcosian does not know. To call off the fight now, could be seen as disrespectful - that Ticoga didn't think them worthy of continuing with. Not wanting to send the wrong message, Ticoga steels himself, and his Ki flares all around him.
Ticoga rockets after Hirudinea, breaking the sound barrier several times. Despite Hirudinea seeming unable to stand right away, Ticoga is upon them, and would attempt to unleash a torrent of strikes on Hirudinea, not intending to give the warrior too much time to recuperate. When they had the strength, Leech and Anny could unleash devastating attacks - Hirudinea would obviously be capable of this as well. The most efficient thing to do would be to break them down until the will to fight was spent.
Ticoga assails Hirudinea! No KP action taken, recovering 1 KP.
Hirudinea pushed themselves up as Ticoga flew right at them. This was really bad and he didn't seem to be slowing down at all. They needed all their energy back then they could get back into this fight. That was what they were looking for. Once they could power up to their full strength they could take the fight to Ticoga. Doubling their powerlevel would put them at <130,000> that be under Ticoga but Ticoga didn't know they had that much more power ready to go. Hirudinea raised their guard as Ticoga came in rushing them with a barrage of blows. The guard was easily shattered as they were knocked around. (Fuck this is really bad) They thought in unison as they were sent flying. "Leech." Anny voice came out of Hirudinea. The Fusion began to glow as it about to split but they stayed together. "Right!" Leech's voice came out as the glowing began to fade as they kept guarding. They fired a stream of ki blasts right at Ticoga trying to blast him back at least for a moment or keep him on his toes. They had to do whatever they could to regain all their ki so they could defeat Ticoga. "Almost there." The fusion said with some confidence restored.

His attacks cut through Hirudinea's guard, forcing them back. Their body kept glowing on and off, leading Ticoga to believe that the fusion they had was not a stable one. They seemed to be trying to buy time now... and this thought was confirmed when the fused siblings unleash a torrent of Ki blasts. The first few explode against Ticoga's guard, but the Arcosian wasn't about to be kept at bay.
He rockets suddenly away, in a wide arc around Hirudinea, that deadly ball of Ki once more forming in his right hand. The Arcosian would then suddenly start zipping left to right, appearing and disappearing rapidly, finally stopping above and behind Hirudinea, gripping his wrist with his left hand. The Ki Ball balloons, crackling with electricity. Ticoga wills the ball forth, sending the blast directly at the fused siblings!
Ticoga's catching on! Fired another Shatter Sphere for 33% of Ticoga's PL in damage!
