Mollusc had seen some of his Namekian Kin who now lived on Namek but after that he went towards the Spinach Wastes. Mollusc needed to go somewhere far away from seeing all Namekians that had been forced off world. It was so sad that his people were forced into such a position. That Namek had been destroyed and he had not been there. That the stargoons had once again taken advantage of the so called goodness of this universe. Everyone trying to allow the evils of this universe to live and move. Mollusc closed his eyes trying to meditate, to think of something else but all he could think of was the burning fury he had about what had happened to his people, what had been allowed to transparent because those with power had done nothing. "RAAAAAAAAAH." Mollusc roared as a red aura flared around him. He blew away the tree's around them sending them flying and create a large plume of smoke. "I hate this feeling! This feeling of weakness!" Mollusc stood up and smashed his fist into the ground causing a large crater. Mollusc shook his head and clenched his fist. He needed something to do. Something to punch and destroy. That was the only way to quell his anger.
Thread's PL: 152,000 / Anti-Sense: Active After his altercation with a Namekian called Violing and his subsequent duel with said Namekian, Vangreth had grown to care about the cause of the Namekians that had lost their home to the Stargoons. The following weeks, he fought one of them and lost badly, then met with Typha, who was also an ennemi of the now infamous group that seemed to spread evil and feat to everything they possibly could interact with, and gradualy, the fear of them being on Earth to cause some more mayhem was growing in the alien's heart, and while tragedy had yet to strike, he was not going to slack off and wait for it to have the drop on him... no... there was action that needed to be taken, and Vangreth's order of the day was to find the Namekian recluses and offer his help, however that could be accomplished.
He had heard rumors of the Spinach Wastes, it made sense that a large population of newcomers would take some unclaimed land as their own, so investigating this false lead was at least a decent start in his eyes, namekians had been seen training in this desertic region, so at the very least he could find some sort of guidance perhaps?
It did not take too long for the first entity he'd cross path with to show itself, as he sensed surge of energy not too far from him, and the flying trees only confirmed his suspicion, someone was a little angry over there, so perhaps he should take a closer look at this?
Shortly after he landed, Vangreth had to rapidly dodge out of the way of a forming crater, coming from a strange-looking Namekian, visibly angered by something that the alien was not seeing immediatly... perhaps asking was the smart thing to do?
'' Hello there! I am Vangreth, and a friend of your people. Is there anything I could do to help?''
Well, he was in a shady partnership with one Namekian only, but hey, this little white lie would not be anymore of he became friend of the Namekians afterward right?
Maybe there was a risk of being attacked by the angered being, but if his ki-sensing was to be believed, he had a fair fighting chance against him, so the real danger here was whatever this being was hiding from him, transformation and all... Vangreth was wise enough not to fall into that kind of 'hidden power' trap anymore.
Mollusc didn't sense anyone around as he raged around. He barely even heard the words of the man as he spoke to him. After a few more seconds of fuming, he finally turned to face who made those words. He was surprised to see a man standing behind him. An alien that he had never seen before. Mollusc could not even sense the Ki of Vangreth. He was not sure how Vangreth could hide his ki like that to him. Mollusc grunted. "No, you can't do anything to help me." Mollusc shook his head. "You all can't help. Namek is destroyed and ash." Mollusc swung his fist. "And the people out there that caused this are still out there and the people that allowed this evil to transpire. I need some way to push my anger somewhere else. Maybe I can attack you." Mollusc sized Vangreth up. He could see himself fighting this guy and burn off his anger but he could not sense any ki. So he just assumed Vangreth was so weak it was not worth the time. He growled after a moment. "So tell me what where you were doing when Namek was being destroyed? Sitting around and listening to the Saiyans say everything was ok?" Mollusc sneered.

It seemed like the Namekian was angrier than Vangreth had initially thought, but the subject of his anger, while the alien could not really size the amount of pain and suffering he went through, was understandable to say the least. There was little he could do but listen to the man's anger and let it shake him to his core, while his accusation was unfair, it was not totally untrue... he had not been doing anything when Namek was being blown up... well... not anything to prevent its destruction, but if only he had known... perhaps he could have made that difference.
'' While I understand your anger, and I certainly can't imagine how strong it might be... when Namek was getting blown up, I was probably fighting for my people's freedom, unaware of what Namek even was. I've only recently learned of this tragedy, and I'm trying to do my part... to make things right.''
He paused for a moment, looking into the eyes of this wrathful individual with all the empathy he could conjure.
'' Wether that means finding the Dragon Balls to recreate the planet, helping your people live through the crisis, or delivering due justice to the Stargoons.''
The alien planted his right foot firmly on the ground, assuming a defensive position.
'' But if you need someone to take your anger out on, then I can certainly offer you some relief. I also feel like throwing a punch or two against something that'll actually resist you might help with all of whatever is boiling inside of you, if only a little.''
This was as clear an invitation Mollusc was going to have, Vangreth would not attack firsts, but if the Namekian engaged things, he was ready to counter-act, not with malice, but with understanding of what needed to be done.
Mollusc growled as Vangreth tried to calm him down. He said he understood his anger? No one could understand his anger! But still, it was comforting that someone tried to understand him. He was not fighting on Namek, but apparently, he had been fighting for another planet freedom. Guess he was a good person? But that didn't help Namek. He seemed to want to find the dragonballs to help revive Namek. And while he appreciated that, it didn't stop someone destroying it again. It also didn't make him feel much better. Mollusc shook his head, "Yes but how does that stop anyone from killing people. Or leave those who caused that pain to become unpunished. That what earth does not get. They wait and do nothing as villains walk this world. Do you think the dragonballs can fix that? What do you plan to do about that." Mollusc sneered.
Vangreth then offered him a fight. He said he felt like throwing a punch or two and that maybe this spar would help some of his hate burn away. Mollusc gritted his teeth. Was this mocking? Did this alien think he was stronger than him? Did he think he just spared with people for fun? Mollusc could not really tell but he realized that maybe he was right. Maybe some sort of spar would help him cool down. And maybe he'd an ally with his 'justice'. Mollusc took in a deep breath and calmed himself just a bit. "Fine, I am fine with a spar. That might be helpful." Mollusc cracked his neck. Mollusc aura flared around him as he took a martial stance. It had been a long time since he fought someone without the intent to cause them serious harm. He had been in a brutal fight after a brutal fight, not just some random spar.
Last Edit: Oct 21, 2020 19:03:37 GMT -6 by Mollusc: added color coat
At first, Vangreth was a bit confused by the Namekian's answer... it seemed like he had picked only a part of his own sentence to answer and forgot the rest, because he did mention bringing justice to the Stargoons... so either that or he did not think justice for destroying a planet and everyone on it meant death... one way or another, intense anger was bound to make those kind of things happen, so the alien would not really hold it against him, but would rather just answer to it.
'' Punch them until they stop, either by dissuation or by death. Agreed that is not really my usual kind of action, but people who blow up planets are just outside of the population I allow myself to care about. The Stargoons have dued justice coming their way, and I want to be part of whatever group will bring it to them.''
Visible anger rose again within Mollusc's eyes, it seemed Vangreth had said something wrong, which was not exactly a rare occurance, but it seemed to have motivated the Namekian into a spar, the alien had been holding back at calling it a spar since the Mamekian might have needed something a little more intense, but a spar would have to do!
'' A spar it is then. ''
As they stood, both in their respective stance, there was a slight tension that really thrilled Vangreth, that little moment before a fight, something he enjoyed greatly.
Eager to have the festivities started, he would engage the spar with a light barrage of projectiles thrown Mollusc's way, nothing too harmful, more of a symbolic gesture to signal the start of their fight. The barrage would only stop if the Namekian got close or started to prepare a technique, if Mollusc tried to hide behind a hill or protect himself, Vangreth would only increase his rate of fire to break whatever was standing in the way. KP:3/3
Vangreth seemed to think they could beat them to death. But that would not happen. They would not let it. The so-called heroes of this universe would never let something like that happen. They cared more about being good than actually saving people. If they cared for helping people then they would have saved Namek. Still, he supposed that if they were people out there ready to take them down that was good to hear. And this guy also seemed ready to spar. That was good he finally burns off some steam. Vangreth stood in his stance as Mollusc fired forward at Vangreth.
But right as he rushed in Vangreth had already fired a blast of projectile blasts. Mollusc crossed his arm as the blasts slammed into him. Mollusc blasted up into the air after that blast as he grinned, this was going to be a good fight. Vangreth fired more blasts up at Vangreth a barrage of blasts and these ones seemed to be even stronger. Mollusc was sent blasting back from the energy balls. Mollusc quickly focused his ki to form a barrier of ki around himself and to block the blasts. He began to fly around and dodge the blasts while he made the barrier. He needed to get close to Vangreth to take him down. Mollusc zipped around as he let the barriers fade as he went to slam his leg down on Vangreth and get him to stop the ki blasts.
Although he knew his barrage of ki blast would only work for so long, Vangreth did not manage to react to Mollusc's attack in time! The Namekian's kick connected with the alien's skull and push his head against his torso, interupting the attacks he was throwing and opening his guard for a moment, even getting a grunt of pain from him.
'' Ugh! Alright, no playing around!''
He growled, as he was visibly shaken, but positively thrilled at the action the Namekian had taken! He seemed reactive and a quick-thinker, not one to easily panic when the situation was getting a little tense, perfect~!
Now that they were close, Vangreth would shift his stance to allow for more swift movements and punches. It had been a while since he tried to fight like this, but he would attempt to throw a couple of jabs at his opponent while moving around the Namekian, effectively testing both the defensive technique and speed of his sparring partner.
If he managed to keep the lead long enough, Vangreth would then attempt a high-kick for Mollusc's face, which should send him flying a little and reset their trade off, with the 'score' being 1 - 1. If however the Namekian would fight back a little harder than expected, then Vangreth would slowly shift to defensive and analyze the Namekian's counter-offensive.
Mollusc fired forward and his kick slammed down on Vangreth's skull. Mollusc flipped away to avoid Vangreth counter-attack. He didn't want to get blasted so easily yet. He was confident in his durability but he also didn't want to get worn down. Mollusc watched as Vangreth fired a couple of jabs. Mollusc raised his guard blocking the blows. But then Vangreth was moving forward and swinging with a hopefully high kick. "!" Mollusc was hit and sent flying back from the blow. Mollusc skidded across the ground before pushing himself into the air. Mollusc whipped the blood from his face and cracked a grin. Ok, he was going to enjoy this. Mollusc blasted flying at Vangreth. "Alright, let's do it!" Mollusc roared as his ki surrounded him. Mollusc fired a couple of blasts down at Vangreth to keep Vangreth on the offensive as he blasted towards Vangreth through the blasts of ki. Mollusc tried to get in close and get in range for a barrage of strikes. Even if this was going to cost him a lot of energy he wanted to push into his limits and burn away all his anger and not even worry about the outcome. Since this was just a spar he didn't have to worry about dying. Just removing his stress.
Last Edit: Oct 22, 2020 18:37:59 GMT -6 by Mollusc: added color coat
Mollusc's defense was pretty sturdy, blocking away the jabs offensive Vangreth had thrown at it with good technique and reaction, it seemed the Namekian had skill to match his power, which was always nice to witness, new fighting style and technique that could only speed up Vangreth's learning through experience.
However, it seemed his high kick had gone through the namekian's defenses and send him away swiftly! The defense was bound to have weaknesses, but he would certainly not be able to exploit that specific one again, he had a feeling his opponent was experienced and wise, not the kind of foe to be under-estimated.
It did not take too long for him to get back up, and barely a few seconds after he was screaming towards Vangreth once again with even more power behind him! Interesting! Vangreth readied himself for the impact, quickly surprised by the barrage of ki-blasts coming his way!
'' Come at me then!''
He shouted back as he started to deflect the ki-blasts with relative ease, although his hands were taking part of the damage each blow, burning them slightly on the surface!
When the Namekian finally arrived, Vangreth barely had the time to assume some sort of a defensive stance before receiving a barrage of attacks, which would mostly hit their intended target as his defensive stance was rushed and incomplete.
Gritting his teeth as he tanked the offensive, Vangreth charged in emergency one of his fist with enough energy to strike a powerful blow! He waited a short while for an opportunity, between two strikes from the namekian, and would wildly swing his punch engulfed in purple ki towards Mollusc in an uppercut motion.
'' Void Punch!''
Whether it would hit or not, the pressure from the punch itself would split the clouds above them.
KP: 2/3 (-1) Using Void Punch[A1]: For 50,160 PL worth of damage towards Mollusc
Mollusc grinned as he faced off with Vangreth as he flew forward. Vangreth was able to avoid his blasts but they did their job and allowed him to get into melee range with Vangreth. Mollusc fired forward his punches landed with convection but they were not enough to beat Vangeth. Vangreth fired forward with a powerful uppercut. Mollusc noticed right away the ki surrounding the blow and the power coming from it. Mollusc body vanished as the Uppercut came. Mollusc was in the same spot ducked under. Mollusc had used the afterimage to dodge just in time and with Vangreth just using such a powerful move Mollusc had to take advantage of the moment gap in Vangreth's focus. Mollusc surrounded his right fist in Ki and attempted to punch Vangreth right in the gut. If that landed he'd then thrust the ki out of his arm and send a ki blast right into Vangreth's gut to send him flying. Regardless of the outcome of this Mollusc quickly leaped away to avoid the counterattack of Vangreth. Mollusc took in a few deep breaths. "You're strong. I can't sense your Ki but that punch I did. I am surprised but if that is the best attack you have then you are in trouble." Mollusc grinned and retook his stance.
Afterimage [SU1]: Through a sudden burst of speed you leave behind a static image of yourself to distract your opponent, this technique allows you to completely dodge techniques beneath 100% of your PL. This technique uses 1 KP in KP Battles. Kp:2/3

Now that was new, just before his Void Punch made contact with the Namekian, they used a suddent burst of speed to dodge out of the way, leaving a mirage being torn by the powerful attack! Fortunately for him, since he was expecting a lot of resistance and got none, Vangreth was propelled foward and over the crouching Mollusc, evading his gut punch which would have been quite the painful experience. It took a second for the alien to regain his focus and balance, then he would turn back swiftly to see the Namekian taking some distance with a comment that pulled a laugh from him.
'' My best attack? Don't be silly, that was but a single Void Punch. I'm not the one to spoil surprises so early into a fight.''
His voice was amused, but not condescendant, he was just having a great time at the moment, this fight was a nice surprise!
The Muko-Jin used the short pause to regain his stance and prepare his next offensive, the Namekian was quite evase and had a strong defense, in order to break it, he would need a extra pair of arms! Good thing he knew exactly how to get such a thing!
Vangreth's aura would shortly flare around him violently, a grunt of effort escaped his before two extra arm made of what looked like concentrated ki bursted from his back, he would swirl them around for a moment and then clenched his four fists.
'' Shall we?'' He briefly said smugly before rushing towards the Namekian as fast as he could, his aura leaving a trail of blazing purple behind him.
When and if he managed to get upclose and personnal, he would throw a powerful barrage of punches, using to full capacity all four of his arm, two of them being used to try and cut any escape the Namekian could find while the other two focused on dealing a maximum of damage! It was nice to play around a little, but now things had to heat up a little! KP: 3/3 (+1) Galaxy Battle Mode[UT1] used to grow 2 extra arms!
Mollusc grinned as Vangreth launched forward and above his punch. Mollusc quickly leaped away though and landed face to face with Vangreth who calmly told him that was not the best he had. "Good give me more. If this fight is too easy I am gonna be annoyed." Mollusc flexed his fists as ki surrounded them. But before he could move forward Vangreth aura began to grow and he formed two new arms. "The four arms technique?" Mollusc had seen it before but it was not one he had ever used. When Vangreth seemed ready to go he nodded. "Of course!" Mollusc moved forward but Vangreth's four arms made Mollusc's situation far more troubling. Mollusc tried to throw a barrage to fight Vangreth but he was hit and sent flying as he turned to guard the blows. Vangreth kept throwing the blows as Mollusc could not do too much in a melee combat. Mollusc decided to fly back to avoid Vangreth's punches. Mollusc pulled back his right arm as ki surrounded it. "Damn well this is not going to let you take this fight so easy!" Mollusc fired a powerful beam of energy forward at Vangreth to try to knock them back and keep him at bay from getting in range for a punch.

Things were going pretty smoothly at that point, the four-arm technique had given Vangreth a solid lead in the fight, and soon enough he would probably be able to take advantage of such thing! This technique always had the neat capacity to force his opponent to think differently, kind of a weird thing that nobody ever used a similar technique against him, as far as Vangreth knew, it was a pretty common and simple technique to learn.
At some point, the Namekian began to back off a little faster, which did make the alien stop his assault, as it backed off as well and prepared for a comeback from Mollusc, which did not fail to happen! A strong burst of energy came in a straight line for him! A neat trick, but not one he'd pay for! With all four of his arms, he would 'catch' the beam, holding the power between his four hands and redirect it to the sky, the beam went to dissipate in space.
'' Not bad yourself! You've been a decent opponent until now, but let's see if you can keep going strong!''
After his words, Vangreth would power-up, his aura flaring around him and sending wave after wave of wind, radiation from him! His aura would change from Purple to Red, the lines over his body would start glowing like heated metal and his power, still unable to be sensed, would go up threefold.
'' Are you ready for round two Namekian? Show me what you go!''
His voice had no trace of malice, but was a little taunt-y on the sides. He motionned with his hand for Mollusc to act first, or perhaps was it just another friendly taunt of his? Vangreth uses Eldritch Power! Power grows to 456,000! KP : 3/3
Mollusc fired the beam forward but Vangreth was ready. Mollusc watched as Vangreth used all four arms to grab the beam and he managed to deflect it into the air. Mollusc grinned, "Man you are quite strong. I am quite enjoying myself. It has been a long since I've felt anything like this." Mollusc cracked his neck as Vangreth seemed ready and willing to power up. Guess he had another level to show. Vangreth aura flared around him and while Mollusc could not sense Vangreth's ki he knew he had gotten a lot stronger. Mollusc decided to go to his next form first and test to see what Vangreth's power. Mollusc aura flared around, a red vile aura to be sure though it was far calmer than usual. Mollusc was enjoying a good spar instead of some fight out of revenge. It was a nostalgic feeling they had not felt in a long time. Mollusc pulled his arms to his side as Vangreth motioned his hand and was ready for him to assault. Mollusc flew forward at Vangreth. "HAAAAAAH!" Mollusc blasted forward at Vangreth sending another barrage of blows to test how fast and strong Vangreth had come with this power-up he had used.
Namekian Spirit Powerlevel:414,000
