Ticoga seemed to be ready to keep the pain on. The two could not take much more of this. But Leech didn't want to give up. Anny was starting to regret this but if they could transform maybe they could turn this around. They just needed a bit more time. The ki blasts seemed to do nothing to the tank that was Ticoga. He rocketed towards them as the Ki blast formed in his hand. "Crap." They said in unison as they guarded themselves. The blast slammed into them sending them flying. They were badly hurt at this point as they were slammed down into a crater as the ki ball left them in a wreck. Yet the Fusion pushed themselves up. (We're close to really getting hurt at this rate) The two thought but they could keep going. Leech wanted to get one good hit on the Aroscian at full power. Blood covered them as they took their stance agian. "It's not over. We still got out the trump card." The fusion said before pulling both arms back. Ki surrounded the arms before a beam of energy flew at Ticoga. Another stall tactic as the two collapsed to a knee breathing hard. They just needed a bit more time.
Another Brutal Attack! 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 137 Percent. This is getting dangerous but they got something to prove. 137+85=222 Percent. Hirudinea is about to be koed for sure and really badly hurt but they are trying to keep it together.
Kp:3/3 (+1 Regnerated)

As the blast detonates, Ticoga slowly lowers his hands. Hirudinea is thrown far by the blast, and the crimson skinned Arcosian's eyes narrow. Hirudinea was slow to rise, setting off warning flags in Ticoga's mind - they weren't running on much steam now. Battered, singed, and bruised, his challengers were operating on sheer will power now.
But why did this matter to them so much? What were they trying to prove? And to whom were they trying to prove it? As Hirudinea rises, Ticoga begins walking towards the fused siblings, silent and confident. There is no smile on Ticoga's face now, only a slight frown. Whether this was disappointment, or distaste for the situation, it was hard to tell. He was within ear shot when Hirudinea defiantly announces that they still had something up their sleeve. Suddenly, the fused siblings unleash a stream of Ki at Ticoga.
The Arcosian stops and braces himself, rather than get out of the way. Just as Leech had done earlier, Ticoga slams his palms against the beam, holding the forceful blast in his hands. Straining, and gritting his teeth, Ticoga lets out a bellow with his effort. The blast pushes Ticoga back a few inches, even with his toes curled into the hard ground. He could feel the Ki searing his palms, and with a great roar, Ticoga wrenches his hands upwards, pulling the Ki in that direction, and redirecting the beam skyward where it would explode in a brilliant flash and thunderous boom.
Ticoga settles down, glancing at his palms, and finally looking at Hirudinea. Wordlessly, Ticoga again begins his march towards Hirudinea, now certain that they were not able to defeat him in this state. The crimson skinned Arcosian gets ever closer, preparing to unleash the final blow that would force the siblings to stand down. If this fight drags on much longer, Ticoga knew his power would be too harmful - and he had no intention of accidentally killing warriors with such unique, and useful powers.
"It's about time to end this challenge, Hirudinea." Ticoga calls over to the fused siblings as he draws ever closer. Ticoga begins concentrating his power; it would most likely only take one more blast from his Shatter Sphere to end this battle. "You've greatly impressed me; I didn't know you had such power. I can scarcely imagine where your potential will take you."
Ticoga approaches Hirudinea, but makes no attacks! Regaining 1 KP.
Hirudinea glanced up as the attack had connected hard. They were badly hurt they could barely keep fighting but they still had something to prove. Leech wanted to prove it he wanted to show his true power. He wanted to not lose to every person he ran into. But this guy seemed to want to end this fight. They glanced up at Ticoga as he offered to end this challenge. The fusion got up as Anny voice came out "Yah I think so." Leech voice then came out "I ain't done yet. I wanna keep going. I don't care if it kills me." Anny snapped. "I don't wanna die through," Anny said but Leech didn't listen. "I can feel the new level lets give it a go Anny," Anny grunted in their fused form, "Fine." This guy didn't want to kill them so it might be ok.
A yellow aura surrounded the fusion as they crossed their four arms. "We won't go down yet!" The pair were one agian in synch as their voice went back to normal. The ground around them cracked as their ki began to swell. The fusion knew they still be a bit weaker then Ticoga but Ticoga may not know that. Their aura flared out exploding and sending nearby rocks flying away from the two. They spat a glob of blood and staggered a bit. "Well, there we go." They knew with the current level of damage anymore and they probably defuse but they had to just give it their best shot. The aura flared as the fusion flew at Ticoga far faster than before. They went for a four-arm elbowed on Ticoga chest before attempting to grab him and launch him into the air with the fused pair. It was time they took this place to a grand stage. A Super Fusion fight required a flashy fight location!

Ticoga stops his advance as Hirudinea finally gets back on their feet. Reason was telling at least half of this being to just back down, the other was being stubborn to a fault - it wasn't difficult to figure out whom each reason belonged to. The Arcosian, shakes his head, and begins towards them again, stopping the instant he noticed the ground crack beneath Hirudinea's feet. The fused being's aura flares, and the land is blown away by their Ki explosion. The intensity even pushes back Ticoga several steps, making his eyes widen.
"...So I was right after all..." Ticoga grins. "You did have a reserve left..."
Hirudinea staggers, but then inexplicably launches after Ticoga. The fused being's speed surprises Ticoga, who only barely manages to whip his forearms up to protect his chest from the four elbowed blow, but he is unable to shake it off before being thrown skyward, with Hirudinea hot on his heels. Ticoga uses his momentum to now force himself to fly backwards, his crimson and black Ki flaring around his form as he invites Hirudinea to chase after him.
They were running on fumes now, so all Ticoga had to do was outlast them - simple enough. His injuries were superficial, while Hirudinea's were severe. Ticoga, still flying backwards, begins firing dozens of small Ki blasts at Hirudinea, intending to pelt the fusion as much as possible as they try to connect with him again.
He pulled Ticoga up as they launched up into the sky. They still needed a kick-ass spot to end this fight but first, they had to deal with these ki blasts heading their way. Hirudinea watched as the ki blasts of Ticoga flew at him. But they were ready as they pulled their arms back and fired their own ki blasts with their four arms. The balls of ki slammed into Ticogas blasts of ki and negated them. He had two arms so even with Ticoga slight speed advantage they were able to keep up. But this was going to do neither of them good. Some of Ticoga ki blasts slipped through and hit them. They growled and blasted into the air flying to avoid the ki blasts. They pulled all four arms back as they charged up a massive blast of ki. Small blasts would not do it. They fire one massive blast at Ticoga and take him out with it. The fused pair kept flying around firing the blast down from above at Ticoga to focus him on that. Meanwhile, they flew around to get behind Ticoga and pull all four fists back as they surrounded in Ki. They need just a bit of time to charge up and nail Ticoga once more.
Ticoga observes most of his ki blasts fizzle against Hirudinea's own, though some manage to find their target. However, it appears that the fused siblings have something in mind, and fire off a much larger Ki ball! The ball races fast through the air, but Ticoga rams his hands against it, catching the massive ball of energy against his palms. Just like before, he planned to hurl the blast away - but something was different from before... Hirudinea was racing in an arc around Ticoga to get behind him!
Ticoga struggles to hold back the Ki ball while also turning his head to keep track of Hirudinea. The blast had been intended as a trap; he could have just tried to avoid it, but he had chosen to try and redirect it instead. There was no need to overthink his situation. Keeping an eye on Hirudinea as they rocket towards him, fists blazing with Ki, Ticoga lets out a bellow and pulls down on the blast, catapulting himself over the top of the Ki ball, and ensuring the blast was on a collision course with Hirudinea!
The Arcosian whips around, straightening himself in mid air, intent to observe Hirudinea's actions unfold.
Hirudinea watched as Ticoga caught the ball. That was a bit annoying but it mattered what Ticoga did with that ball of ki. They were sure they could manage. They just needed to avoid any large hits from the Aroscian. Ticoga was able to deal with the ball of ki by sending towards them. That was not good at all. But Hirudinea was ready as the ball came at them they flew down just avoiding the blast that flew into space before exploding far away. Hirudinea kicked off the air launching right at Ticoga. What mattered was landing a real blow on the Aroscian. They launched at Ticoga pulling their fists back "Here it is all our power in one let's kick his ass!" They two launched at Ticoga as their ki began to rise again. Their aura got larger and larger. Unknown to either of them they just reached a new level of power. But Ticoga would probably have realized that.
They launched at Ticoga pulled all four fists back as they got surrounded by a brilliant green and purple ki. A mixture of the fused twin's power. It was time for them to give it all they got. "Full power!" They rushed pushing the fists forward. Four blows flew out each aimed at a different spot. One for his head, another for his throat, one his heart and one his stomach. This was their strongest attack they could muster. Hopefully, it was enough to defeat Ticoga. As they landed the blow though they began to glow clearly there fused power was too much for them. They would be splitting up soon regardless of the outcome of this attack.

Ticoga keeps his eye on Hirudinea as they rocket towards him, and realizes that their Ki was flaring larger and larger. When Hirudinea announced they were putting their all into the coming blow, Ticoga grins.
"Let's have it then!! Show me what you've got!!" Ticoga bellows back, bracing himself and flying straight at Hirudinea. But to his surprise, Hirudinea was suddenly faster than him! The blows came suddenly, and harshly. The Arcosian could only register that he'd been struck before finding himself dazed and crashing viciously into the ground. The landscape warps around the point of impact, ripping jagged stone jutting upwards with the thunderous impact of a powerful bomb detonating.
For a long moment, Ticoga lays in the massive crater of debris, mouth open and eyes rolled back. But something wills him on, and Ticoga emits a harsh coughing fit, spewing purple blood from his mouth. His left eye had swollen shut, and various lacerations bleed across his body and extremities. But Ticoga gains control of his composure, and turns over onto his stomach, slowly pushing himself off the ground with his forearms. Again, the Arcosian coughs up blood, and his body shudders, wracked with pain. Wheezing, Ticoga pushes himself up, and staggers to stand straight.
"Un... believable..." Ticoga rasps, wiping blood from his mouth and chin. "...Magnificent... truly... Khahahahaha!"
Despite the pain, Ticoga chuckles at what he'd just experienced. Hirudinea had somehow powered up even further than before.
"You keep surprising me... Hirudinea..." Ticoga says levitating off the ground and rising into the air once more. His body is ravaged with wounds, but nothing truly life threatening yet. If he'd been any weaker, Hirudinea would have killed him, despite him telling them that he had no desire to kill them. This fact does not escape Ticoga, whose expression is an odd mix of wonder and fury. "I keep underestimating you... Forgive me for that... but I'd say, looking at you, that you put too much into that attack."
Ticoga's good arm rises with his hand open and fingers splayed wide, and a ball of unstable crimson Ki balloons in front of his palm.
"I, on the other hand, have been conserving my Ki... You should have taken my offer to end the fight earlier..!" Ticoga tells them, the ball flickering violently. His good eye narrows as he focuses on Hirudinea. With a snarling expression, Ticoga launches his attack at Hirudinea!
DAMN!! Ticoga takes a whopping 140% of damage from that attack! Injured, but not beaten, Ticoga retaliates with A1 - Shatter Sphere, dealing 33% of his PL in damage! (51,456) Costs 1KP
Hirudinea fired off their strongest attack firing directly into Ticoga chest. It hit right on. He didn't dodge he didn't do a thing. The attack blasted Ticoga into the dirt. The fused pair took in a few gasps of air as they were clearly tired. They were wondering if they overdid it just a bit. But it seemed that Ticoga was alive. They could sense his ki. So at least that was not a worry. Though as for him is still in the fight it seemed doubtful. Then to their surprise, Ticoga rolled over and was clearly conscious. "Wow guess he's pretty good?" Hirudinea said rubbing their chin as they noticed themselves glowing. "That is not good. Guess we're about to defuse. The damage is just too much." Though this was their normal form would they be stuck like this for a bit?
But first, they had to see what Ticoga was going to do. Ticoga admitted he was surprised and he seemed to appreciate what had happened? The feeling was realy odd, they couldn't read how Ticoga was feeling. Not that either of them was normally good at that but especially in this case they were in the dark. Still, what was clear was Ticoga assumed they had no energy left. "HAH don't assume that we're still ready to go." They raised their arms but no energy came out. "We should go enough energy for one big attack." Then they realized their powerlevel had increased. They must have reached a new form. And unlike the Fusion normally they didn't have a massive reserve of Ki. That ki had been converted into more dense and powerful ki. Hirudinea glanced at the sky as if looking at someone that was in front of them. They had a frown on their face but turning to see Ticoga blast which slammed into their gut "GUAHHAHA" The fusion cried out as the blast send them flying. Finally, they were done. They were already at the end of the rope. The two defused crashing into different spots. Leech who had taken most of the punishment before fusing was out cold with a smirk. Anny laid agiasnt a rock badly hurt but alive. "Ow...yah refusing was not a good idea." Anny groaned. "I'm gonna be sore for at least a week." The bigger concern was what Ticoga was about to do.
Hit by Shattering Sphere. 26 Percent Damage! 222+26=248. There are done. They Resplit into Leech and Anny. Leech is ko'ed Anny is done as well but concious.

Ticoga watches, his chest swelling with something he wasn't familiar with. Is this what triumph felt like? Hirudinea took the blast head on, and appears to split once more into the two siblings. Ticoga heaves a heavy sigh, right before another coughing fit wracks his body - this spar had gone too far, this much is certain. Once the coughing subsides, Ticoga, spotting that Anny was still conscious, flies down and lands in front of her, fixing the alien with an annoyed look.
"...It's over, then." Ticoga says after a moment. "The two of you took it too far; if this had gone on too much longer, either you would have killed me, or I would have killed the two of you. Your brother is brash. Strong, but brash. Together, the two of you are quite formidable - but you are head strong, especially when fused."
Ticoga then grins, and holds out a hand for Anny to take. If she does, Ticoga would carefully pull to help her stand up.
"But that lecture aside, you two are quite incredible." Ticoga compliments. He closes his eyes, and his body begins to glow until his entire form is a shimmering crimson light. He stature shortens, and four horns, two small and two long, protrude from his head. Ticoga had returned to his most restricted form. "Before we began, I asked that you consider joining me if I were to win. But I feel that the battle was too close for that; so I will ask only that you consider that I am offering you and your brother a place on my ship, and with my crew as it grows."
Ticoga smiles friendlily.
"You don't have to join me, but I would be elated if you both did." Ticoga continues. "Even if your answer for now is no, know that I would pay well, and that you would not likely go hungry - as I am an avid cook, after all."
Ticoga turns away from Anny to look in Leech's direction.
"I have a medbay on my ship, and a physician I can contact in Suplex City." Ticoga offers. "Let's collect your brother, and get ourselves fixed up."
Alrighty! So, we can either run a few more posts, or we can end it with your next post, hirudinea ! If you decide to end it here, then this will be my exit post! This was a lot of fun, and a big learning experience for the site's combat system, so thank you

Anny snorted as Ticoga made the point that they took it too far they could have died. "Maybe. But neither of us wanted to kill eachother. So of course were pulling punches." Anny sighed. "But maybe that last attack was a bit too far and yah maybe Leech should have backed down earlier but sometimes a sister got to let her brother do dumb stuff." Anny shook her head. Guess Ticoga was speaking some truth, they were a bit headstrong. "As for being strong. I think even with our max strength we are not much. When we first came here we faced off with the queen of the saiyans, Kayen. Her base was around <100,000>. Yet she had a lot of power hidden I image. If I remember someone said at some point she was that super saiyan. We got a long way to go if we ever could match that level power." Anny sighed. "But we don't want power. We just wanna be able to do what we please."
Ticoga seemed to have forgotten about forcing them to join. "We will consider it," Anny said. She was not sure she wanted to join Ticoga since hew as not that strong in the grand scheme. He also offered for them to go to his medical bay. "Yes, that be the best. We do need a ton of healing." Anny grabbed Leech pushing herself off the ground. She staggered a bit. She could probably at least fly Leech to where they needed to go but after she was pretty sure she'd drop. This fight really took everything out of her. "Right let's go." She said before she went got ready to follow Ticoga.

Ticoga seems briefly disappointed, but it just as quickly disappears.
"I see, that's a shame." Ticoga says once Anny finished her reply, and extended her acceptance for treatment. "Well, I won't ask any more than that. If you change your minds, feel free to look me up."
He pulls his hand back, as Anny either didn't notice or understand that he had tried to help her up - but she seemed more interested in getting herself back on her feet. As Anny gets her brother situated, Ticoga retrieves his battle jacket and scouter, putting them on and cracking his neck a few times before turning back.
If Anny was listening, she would hear Ticoga calling for a transport to come to their location before the Arcosian raises his eye to the siblings again.
"It will be a few minutes, but a transport is on the way." Ticoga explains. "My ship is still being stocked and refurbished, so we will have plenty of time to take things easy. He walks over, but stops to eye Anny, as if remembering something. "I do have a question though - what in the galaxy does asking a girl on a date mean??"
It probably seemed like a funny thing to ask, but Ticoga had never heard the words phrased together like that before. Perhaps Anny was making some kind of cultural reference; Ticoga wasn't sure.
Anny got up. "Yeah we like our freedom but if things change we will let you know." Anny nodded her head. That was the least she could say on the matter. Anny began to follow Ticoga. She watched as she called his transport. Guess they didn't need to go flying towards it. That would make this whole situation a lot easier. Then she asked a question. About what she had said air earlier about asking a girl on a date. Anny turned a bit red before putting her hand to her mouth. She held back a laugh. For this guy, who seemed to be all thinking aroscian, a smart elegant man he didn't know what that meant? That really surprised her, so much in fact that she started laughing even when she tried to hold it back. "Oh, your funny Ticoga." She would quickly calm down. "You don't know what that means? I would think you'd would know. Alright, I can explain to you what that means. When a boy and a girl, or any other combination like each other they go out and do something together for fun. They do that to get closer so maybe they get together." Anny hoped that was enough to explain to Ticoga what that meant.

Ticoga feels blood rushing to his face when Anny starts laughing. He didn't think he was being funny, but maybe there was something about his question that was humorous? He had no idea. But her explanation was extremely similar to what Zriracha had explained to him about having fun.
"Is that what that was..??" Ticoga mumbles to himself, itching the tip of his nose. "When Zriracha brought me along to have fun, is that what a date was? ...This fun stuff is difficult to understand..."
Ticoga crosses his arms over his chest, looking thoughtful.
"So... dating is an engagement between species that require two parents to reproduce, and the objective of a date is to verify if they are emotionally compatible." Ticoga says, a bit louder than his mumbling before. His face scrunches in confusion. "But Anny said that a date comes before attempting to recruit them... Dates are a fun way to test a potential mate... Having fun is how Zriracha suggested I try to live... but dating is about fun as well..."
Ticoga's already red face seems to glow with embarrassment, a harsh blush appearing across his cheeks and the bridge of his nose.
"So these two are refusing my offer now, but may accept later." Ticoga goes on, more to himself than to Anny, his blushing now beating across his entire face. "But I would have to offer a date to Anny before that works out... despite not intending to form an emotional relationship, which would be the same as lying... This is unbelievably complex..."
As Ticoga mutters and mumbles, a hovercraft can be seen quickly approaching them.
Anny glanced at Ticoga as he seemed to still be confused about what she had been saying. He seemed to be trying to dissect what meant for a date. Apparently he was assuming he had been on with some Zriracha lady. Or at least what might be seen as a date. He seemed to be embarrassed as he thought about all of this. She was getting confused too. She didn't understand what was going on at all. It got even more confusing as he assumed for her to work for him they had to go on a date. Now it was her turn to go all red. "No!" Anny waved her hands. Clearly Ticoga didn't understand it. "You can still go out with people without going on a date with them. Like you can still hang out with people and just do that cause you want too. A Date is a bit more special in that." Anny rubbed her forehead. "Look I'd the least qualified person tell you what a date is. Just move on. Ask someone else I'm sure they can explain it much better then I can." She was really hoping that hovercraft would arrive soon so they could get out of this awkward conversation.
