Mai: Like what you see? *Grin*
Genma: Ummm..uhh...Sorry, I didn't mean to stare.
Mai: No problem, happens all the time.
Genma: *Thinking* Focus, focus. Keep your cool. You're gonna end up losing a match that should be easy!
Mai: *Dropping into her stance* Are you ready? I am.
Genma: *Coming to attention, and dropping into his own form* Let's get on with it.
Nemo rolled her eyes, and grabbed the microphone. As entertaining as that little conversation had been, the audience was growing restless. It was best to start now.
Nemo: Ladies and gentlemen! Our next match pairs veteran, Mai against the newcomer, Genma! Who will triumph, the sexy ninja, or the wily mage? Let's find out, shall we?
The two fighters tensed, showtime.
And they blurred into motion.

Mai: Will you stand still?! Stay where you are and take it like a man!
Genma: Can I help it if someone else can't keep up with me?
Mai grumbled to herself for a moment, then a smile spread across her face. She began swaggering forward.
Mai: I must say though, I am having a lot of...'fun'.
Genma backed up a bit, sweating slightly.
Genma: Could you, y'know, not do that please?
Mai: Awww, and I was wanting to show you something!
Genma: *Curiously* What's that?
Mai: Kachou Sen!
Genma cried out as the fan connected with him, he skidded a few feet, then regained his balance. And turned to look at his opponent. Who smiled back. Despite the fact her attack hadn't achieved much in the way of damage.
Genma's eyes narrowed.
Genma: You're playing a very dangerous game girl. I suggest you stop right now. Or else things are *not* gonna be fun for you.
Mai: Promises, promises. Kaschou Sen!
This time Genma swatted the projectiles out of the air.
The weapons exploded in a flash of light, and scattered dust all around.
Genma: You are nowhere near what Krauser was. The best thing to do is simply give it your all, and stop playing around.
Mai: *Cooing* But there's no pleasure in that. And how else will I make Andy jealous?
Genma: You're doing this to make your boyfriend jealous?
Mai: That, and beat you. *Wiggling a little*
Mai: Now! KAGEROU NO MAI!
A column of fire enveloped the two.

Nemo: I hope you did a good job studying that scroll we gave you. After all, you’ll be fighting my Onee-sama pretty soon.
Geese: *narrows eyes* You were the one on the phone, the one who killed my agent.
Nemo: Yep! That was me! In fact, this whole tournament was my idea; I just had CYS set it up for me.
Geese: *nods* I thought so. And the purpose of all this? It has to do with the Orochi doesn’t it?
Nemo: Right again! I’m impressed.
Geese: *turns away* This “Onee-sama” of yours is not going to make a fool of me again; she’s not going to get the chance. I intend to win this tournament, and I intend to be the one to reap all of the benefits, understand?
Nemo: Perfectly. So I guess you have nothing to worry about then, do you? *cute smile*
Nemo teleports away, leaving Geese to finish preparing.

Mai: Well, that was interesting for a while. And he was kinda cute. Though not in the same league as my Andy.
???: Sorry to hear that.
She spun around as a figure walked out of the smoke.
Genma: I'm getting tired of the pattern emerging. You throw a move, I throw a move. We repeat. Martial arts isn't all about ki attacks afterall.
Mai: True. True. Maybe a deal? Just straight out fighting for the rest of the match?
No sooner had he said this than his form blurred, and she felt the air taken from her lungs due to the fist in her stomach. As she keeled over Genma retracted his arm, and allowed her to slump further.
Genma: I wasn't kidding when I said you're no Krauser. Your speed, while admirable, isn't up to snuff. Nor is your strength, your toughness, endurance, agility, or anything else that matters. The only advantage you have is.....
Mai: W-what, can't say it? *Getting back up* Can't admit you have the hots for me? Awwww, is the big bad man afraid?
She advanced, and he retreated.
Mai: Come'on, I won't bite.
Genma: *Thinking* Dammit! I hate it when women do this. It always screws me up.
This time it was Genma's turn to be attacked. Using his distraction, Mai rushed forward, and tried to sweep his legs. When he jumped backward, she kicked high, catching him in the chest. Then she richoted off a pillar, and slammed into him in mid-air, forcing both of them to crach into the arena floor.
As she recovered from the risky manuever, a fist flashed out and caught her in the temple, bouncing her meters away. And dizzying her.
Genma: Not bad, but still not good enough.
He rushed forward and struck her in the temple again, then grabbed on and suplexed her headfirst.
He waited while she got up, then once again dropped into a stance.
Mai: Knew...y-you weren't up for it.
Genma: Up for it? What the hell are you talking about?
Mai: All men are the same, even Andy. They start 'wrestling' around, but don't have the guts, or certain other parts, to finish the job. *Grins*
Genma: You really are something else, you know that?
Mai: *Throatily* You're not the first to tell me that.
Before Genma could answer, a lightning bolt struck in the middle of the ring, gaining his attention. He turned to look outside, and spotted Lenneth glaring at him. Her sword was held in hand, and the way it sparked left no doubt as to who had just provided the lightshow. She nodded at Mai, and then made a slashing motion across the throat. Genma sighed, and turned back, catching Mai's fist inches from his face.
Genma: Sorry about this, but little Miss. Patience over there wants it over with.
Mai: Ohhhh, whipped much?
Genma: Don't even start, it's not like that.
Unknown to him, Lenneth's eye started twitching. Keiya wisely backed up.
Mai: Surreeee. Of course not.
Genma: Anyway, time to end it. Sorry. Duty calls.
Genma kneed her in the chest, then drove her head into the ground. Not giving her time to get up he yanked a leg, and tossed her into the air, then jumped upwards. As he wrapped his arms around her, he whispered into her ear.
Genma: About that rule of 'no more ki-attacks'? It's null and void. No hard feelings.
Ki crackled around him, and began channeling into her. Soon she too glowed with a faint light.
Genma: Ether Strike!
He released her towards the ground, and she shot downwards like a missile. At speeds that would do a jet proud.
The Either Strike normally entailed a user gathering horrendous ammounts of energy, and releasing it in the form of a large blast. But Genma had revised it, using Mai as the foci, therefore making her part of the technique itself. And making sure she would be directly inside of ground zero. Though this version was nowhere near the power of the original, it would serve the purpose he required of it.
She connected with the ground, and the area shuddered, exploding outward. Only Lenneth's field kept the audience from being incinerated by the backblast.
Genma lightly set down, as the smoke cleared away. At the center of a very large crater lay Mai. She was covered in bruises, and unconscious, but none the worse for wear. She'd be out of it for a few days though.
The mage shook his head, and walked away, ignoring how Lenneth repaired the ring as soon as the injured girl was carted away. He also missed how Lenneth watched him for a moment longer, then turned away, an expression full of grief flashing across her face.
And most importantly, he missed the furious look on the versage of one Andy Bogard.

Chris: Now that was impressive.
Yashiro: But to do that to such a beautiful woman, it's a crime against nature... Ow! *rubs the back of his head where Shermie's fist connected with it* What was that for?
Shermie: Do you have to ask? You were staring at her for the entire match!
Yashiro: Well what did you want me to look at?
Chris: Um, could we try to focus a little here? These fighters are using up a lot of power, it won’t be long now.
Yashiro: Yeah, and it looks like we’re going to deal with this Genma in the finals.
Shermie: We can handle him, Yagami’s going to take care of Keiya, and Nemo says she has plans to personally deal with Kusanagi. There’s no one else here we need to be concerned about, he’ll be all alone.
Yashiro: That’s assuming we can trust her.
Chris: I wouldn’t worry about it, in the end no matter who’s left, they’ll all be swept away.

Geese Howard steps up onto the platform and awaits his opponent.

The small figure awoke with a start, sweat pouring down his face. The dreams, what did they all mean..........Perhaps they were just memories of events long sence passed. He had heard that a while ago there was a conflict between people and an army of undead and robots, but why was this an important memory.
The Sun had broken through the clouds and the rain had stopped. The small figure packed his clothes and other material belongings before stepping out into the sun and begining along the path.

Pellcia: Well Geese, Tell me.......How does it feel to know your about to get pummeled into the ground by a girl?
Geese: Ha! Your no match for me. Prepare for a slow death.
Pellcia: Really? I was going to kill you fast but if that's what you want.
The bell went off and the match began. Geese ran forward and swing his fist hard, but Pellcia sidesteped out of the way and countered with a kick to the stomach. Geese fliched for a moment but began smileing.
Geese: Your going to have to hit harder then that.
Pellcia: And your going to have to speed up, your way to slow.
Geese: How dare you!
Geese ran in and lauched a assult of punches and kicks but pellcia danced around the arena and avoided every thing he tryed.
Geese: Stand still so I can kill you!
Pellcia: What a loser. Heck, you know who I am! I'm Pellcia, Goddess of everything!
Pellcia was so caught up in her speech that she bearly noticed the blue blast of Ki heading towards her, She fliped out of the way but it caught her in the foot as she lept. Pellcia landed and danced around on one foot for a moment.
Geese: Hehehe, So? Who's the loser now?
Pellcia: Your going to be when I get through with you!!!
Pellcia pulled out her modifed energy sword and pointed it towards Geese, she smiled and then leaped through the air and brough the sword down on Geese's arm, cutting a large gash down it. Geese cluched his arm and glared.
Geese: You'll die for this! Raging Storm!!
Pellcia Eyes wided and she jumped back as Geese prepared to slam his hands into the ground. In mid air she pointed her sword at him
Pellcia: Take this! Sword Blast!
A green energy blast fired from the tip of her sword and hit just as Geese brought his hands into the arena floor cause a huge explosion that covers the arena in smoke. When the dust clears Pellcia stands up on the other side of the arena coughing while Geese lay motionless on the ground.

Meanwhile, in a monitoring station located in a safehouse on Khazan, the signal was intercepted. While the point of origin was determined, its intended recipient was unclear. Analysis of the signal and message so far did not detct any hidden meanings or codes.

Keiya: Then we begin.
The two slid into their respective stances, and waited for the signal to start.
One would have found it surprising, the similarities between these two men. Both disliked fighting, but were viscious and clinical in a battle. They preferred to be silent, keeping thoughts to themselves. Little friends, and many enemies.
And most importantly, they were masters of war.
And so it began....

Keiya was more subtle in his movements. He flowed with the grace of a cobra, analyzing his foe, testing them. When a weakness was found, he'd strike, crushing them.
No one could dispute the effectiveness of either style. Both had left numerous broken bodies in their wake. Yuri and Chang being the most recent.
The only question was; who would be the victor?
Keiya weaved in between his opponent's blows, steadily drawing closer to his target. He waited for the right moment, and retaliated when Iori extended his punch a little too far.
Grabbing onto a wrist, Keiya pivoted, and flung Iori away. The young Yagami smashed into the ground, but was up barely a second later, and again on the attack. Jumping into the air, he angled himself, and began his descent. Keiya ducked to the side, clearing the impact zone, and watched as the arena floor shattered.
As the smoke cleared, a red haired fighter, seemingly unharmed from his failed gambit, burst forward, hoping to catch his adversary unawares.
Only to instead be blitzed with several blows to the ribs, and follow-up roundhouse kick to the chin.
Iori skidded a few feet back, but quickly recovered, due to his amazing endurance. Not missing a beat, he clawed the air, and summoned his innate power.
Iori: Demon Scorcher!
A wall of energy shot forth, and headed towards Keiya. Who leaped over it, leaving it to crash into Lenneth's barrier, and dissipate harmlessly. Using Yagami as a springboard, the yakuza leader flipped away, twirled in the air, and touched down on the opposite side of the ring from which he'd started. Iori growled, having been the victim of a kick to the face during that whole gymnastic routine.
Iori: You're very fast.
Keiya: And you're.....durable. Meaning I can finally stop playing around as much.
Iori grunted as he found a fist imbedded in his stomach. Swallowing the pain, he struck out wildy, forcing his antagonist back.
Iori: Hazy Fist.
The three hit combo was partially parried by Keiya, but the third manuever caught him in the face, throwing him back. The head of the Tenpouin clan quickly dodged away, avoiding a repeat of the previous attack.
Keiya: I'm impressed. It's been a long time since someone managed to make me *feel* their strikes. Save for those in I-Praseru.
Iori: Less talk, more fight!!
And once again, Iori was crumpled over. When he tried to rise, a foot caught him in the side of the head.
Keiya: That better for you? I said I was impressed. Not content. You're still holding back. I can feel it festering inside of you. Release your potential, and show me what you've got.
He waved his hand, and a lance of power struck down, pinning the red haired fighter to the ground like a bug.
Keiya: Or I'll kill you where you lay.
Iori struggled to get up, but found he couldn't. The pounding in his head was getting worse, and controlling his urges was tougher. If he didn't get loose soon, and calm down.....
Keiya kicked him again. Making a wave of pain ripple through him.
Keiya: Are we listening? I don't think you get my point.
Keiya: I'm sorry, did that hurt? I've been told the bones of the arm can only take so much punishment before they start cracking. I guess you can sympathize now, eh? *Smirking* Last chance. Release it.
Iori tried one more time to hold himself back, and failed. His eyes shown a dark red, and with a guttural roar, he tore himself free. Climbing to his feet, Iori was changed. All traces of intelligence gone, only pure instinct left. He coughed up a small amount of blood, and it fell to the floor.
Keiya watched on, and willed a massive pentagram to form behind him. It glowed for a moment, and began drawing in strands of energy. Growing stronger with every passing second.
And Keiya simply smiled.
Keiya: And now, my true test can take place.
His hands dropped to his sides.
Keiya: Welcome to Hell.

Keiya: Let's start the festivities. Afterall, we wouldn't want to keep our adoring public waiting, eh?
Iori roared, and lunged at his prey, only to smack headfirst into a translucent barrier. Getting back up, he inspected it, sending light punches here and there. Once his test was complete, he made a slashing motion, and several ripples of power flowed through the air. They collided with, and shredded, the field.
His obstruction gone, the Yagami stalked forward. Keiya nodded.
Keiya: Good. I'm glad there is someone here who can bypass my defensive shell. But can you handle this?
The yakuza leader ran forward, and released a flash of light, blinding Iori. While his opponent was still dazed, Keiya delivered a strike to the temples, and followed with an uppercut, launching Iori backward.
The red-haired brawler howled, and climbed to his feet, in time to absorb a punch to the face. He grunted, and retaliated with a wild swing. This was dodged by Keiya, who once again grabbed a wrist, and flipped Iori away.
What he didn't count on was the boost the Riot of Blood provided. Iori flipped in mid-air, completely recovered, angled himself in Keiya's general direction, and threw a blast of energy.
Keiya tried to dodge, but was caught, and tossed backwards. He had no time to recuperate, as Iori was immediately back on the offensive. The first shot was blocked, but the following ones were not. Keiya cried out in pain as a chunk of his shoulder was torn away by the now insane fighter. A headbutt cut off further shouts. Keiya crumpled, as Iori growled quietly.
Iori reached downward to pick up his adversary, and barely managed to keep from having his head tore off by a rising kick. Keiya richoted away, and touched down a few meters away.
Keiya: Well, I wanted a battle didn't I? *Grins* Looks like I got it. You'll pay for what you did to my shoulder by the way.
He slid back into fighting stance, while Iori rushed forward, tearing up anything in his path. Keiya ducked under his blow, and landed several shots to the solar plexus, then fired off a point blank energy lance.
Iori stumbled but still followed through with his punch, and batted Keiya away.
The Tenpouin leader cursed to himself.
Keiya: Cheeky little bastard. Damn lucky I'm still regaining power from my last battle with Midori. I should have burned this whole place to the ground when I had the chance.
Keiya blurred into motion, and while dancing through the orochi-warrior's manuevers, began channeling ki. He didn't have enough power to win this straight out. Before, when he was still in I-Praseru, he could have crushed this kid within the matter of ten seconds. But as it was now, with him still recovering from the journey between dimensional barriers, and his last spar with Midori, he was running on low. There was only one chance.
Iori reared back, glowing with power, and prepared to launch another energy blast.
Keiya struck out, and slammed a fist into Iori's forehead. When he removed it, a small ward was stuck in place.
The effect was immediate. Iori collapsed, writhing in agony. His eyes slowly faded back to normal, and with the loss of his power, his sanity came rushing back. He managed to look up, and stare. His opponent was hunched over a few feet away, clutching his injured shoulder.
Keiya: *Grimacing* It was something I made before even coming to this tournament. It's based off the rituals Kusanagi's go through. Those procedures tap into the same energy as me, that of mystic and ki, to release the power of that family.
He managed to stand upright now, though he was still nursing the injured side.
Keiya: Unlike what the two of you believe, the power of your families isn't that different.Meaning if something can turn it on, another can turn it off. It's only a matter of working out how. And that's something my clan specializes in. As of right now, you're cut off from the energy of your ancestors.
Slowly reaching into his pocket, and wincing as he did so, Keiya retrieved another ward.
Keiya: Until I apply this, you're powerless. I created it as a last resort just in case you and your kind proved to be a bit more...formidable than expected. And I'll be happy to help you, as soon as the tournament's over.....
He turned, and slowly began walking out of the ring, but added in one last thing.
Keiya: For a price.

Yashiro: I don't know. Yagami went into Riot of Blood, I was sure that guy was dead but...
Shermie: So who won?
Nemo: I'll go down and see if I can find out. *to Seth* Stay here Seth-sempai, I'll be right back! *teleports away*
Written by Genma 10-10-2002 05:30 PM
Nemo: What just happened?
Keiya: I shut down his innate power. He's about as tough as an olympic-level athelete now, maybe a bit more. He's still dangerous, thanks to his skill, but even the weakest here could take him down with no problem whatsoever.
Nemo: But does this constitute as a win? I mean-
Keiya: I made him unable to fight. His body has just about quit for now. See? *Points to a passed-out Iori* He's going to be unconscious for a few hours. And he was out of it before I exited the ring. So that would count as a KO. Questions?
Nemo: What do you plan to do with that ward? *Eyes it*
Keiya: *Placing it in a pocket* If he wants his abilities back, he'll have to agree to owe us a few.....favors. Then I'll consider it.
Keiya: Good. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get healed up.

Nemo: *teleporting in* Mr. Keiya won, he sealed up Iori's power somehow.
Chris: *eyes wide* He can do that?
Nemo: I guess so...
Yashiro: *scowling* Well that's just great. You guaranteed us that Keiya wouldn't win that match Nemo. We can't risk having to deal with a guy who can do that in the finals.
Nemo: I know, I know... *thinks a moment* Who's Keiya supposed to fight next round?
Chris: The winner of the next match, I think it's Terry Bogard vs. Raiden.
Nemo: *nods* All right, I'm going to go down there and deal with this right now.
Shermie: What are you going to do?
Nemo: Oh you'll see. *cute smile* Come on Seth-sempai! *grabs Seth and teleports away*

Nemo: *teleporting up to the stage with Seth in tow* Hold it! There’s been a change; I’m the one who’s going to be fighting Terry Bogard this round!
Spokesman: … And just who are you?
Nemo: *facefaults* I’m Nemo you moron! This is *my* tournament, and I want to fight Terry Bogard RIGHT NOW!!!
Raiden: *walking up to the stage* Look shrimp, I don’t know what you think you’re doing here but…
Raiden doesn’t get the chance to finish his sentence as a blast of Orochi fire launches him several feet into the air, sending him crashing into the far stadium wall. The wrestler’s eyes roll back in his head as he falls to the ground and passes out cold.
Nemo: *Orochi fire blazing around her* ANYONE ELSE HAVE A PROBLEM?!?
Terry: *already up on the platform* If the kid wants to fight me so bad let her fight. *fixing his cap* I’m ready.
Nemo: Thank you Mr. Bogard! So if there are no further problems…
Spokesman: Um, no of course not. Ladies and gentlemen, there’s been a change in our lineup! Terry Bogard will now be facing this talented young lady, Miss Nemo!
Nemo: Good. *to Seth* Guess what Seth-sempai, I’ve decided to make you my new head of security! Your job is going to be to make sure no one interferes with any of the matches, especially mine. Understand? Good! See you after my match Seth-sempai, and have an ice-cream cone ready for me after I win okay? *kisses him on the cheek and teleports onto the platform*

Lenneth: What happened to you?
Keiya: He was a bit tougher than I believed.
Keiya: I beat him in a roundabout way. The Kusanagi family goes through a ritual to access their power. And the people who administer that ritual tap into the same power I do. Now, both the Yagami and Kusanagi clans are very similar, moreso than they think. So I came upon a back up plan just in case their kind proved to be a handful. Their abilities have an 'on' switch. I found the 'off' switch. Understand?
By this time Lenneth had blanked out, having not been prepared for a lecture. Keiya rolled his eyes, and gestured to his shoulder.
Keiya: Would you mind helping me out?
Lenneth: Huh? Oh! Very well. Here.
She tossed a potion to him, which he drank. His wounds healed, and he was rejuvenated. His eyes widened.
Keiya: It....can't be!
Lenneth: Oh? What is it?
Keiya: When I left I-Praseru, most of my power was ripped away. I've been slowly gaining it back as time passed. This whole time, I've been operating at somewhere around 20%.
Keiya: Now I've increased to 35%!
Lenneth: *Shrugs* Good. Then you'll be more of a help when the time comes.

Genma: Long story. Tell you later.
Lenneth, meanwhile, had snagged Chibi-Genma back into her arms.
Chibi-Genma: Oh well. It's a living.
They then noticed Nemo walking onto stage, and making her announcement.
Genma: Looks like she's got a serious need to beatdown someone.
Lenneth: I wonder if this is a ploy....
Genma: If she wins, are you going to have to fight her Keiya?
Keiya: We'll have to see.

Nemo: Close, but you don’t quite get it. Don’t worry about it though, you will soon enough. *cute smile*
Terry: *narrowing his eyes* Right… *gets down into a fighting stance*
Terry crouches further in his stance, his eyes fixed on Nemo as she moves casually towards him, the smile still glued to her face.
Nemo: *now directly in front of him* You can make your move now Mr. Bogard.
Terry is quick to oblige, launching a kick at the side of her head. Nemo teleports to the side, still smiling, and Terry’s eyes follow as he throws a punch at her new location, only to have his fist meet empty air as Nemo teleports several feet backwards.
Nemo: *smirk* You’re gonna have to be faster than that.
Terry: *smiles a little himself* All right, don’t mind if I do.
He charges after her with blinding speed, throwing move after move until he almost seems to blur himself. Nemo teleports away each time, giggling lightly.
Terry: *feints a punch as he tries to anticipate her next location* Crack Shot!
Nemo: *teleporting backwards* Oh, you almost had me that time! *throwing Orochi flames at him* Too bad!
Terry: *fire grazing him as he sidesteps just in time* Whew!
Nemo is giggling openly now as she runs toward him, tossing flames all the way. Terry dodges frantically, moving to the side and backwards until he reaches the end of the platform.
Nemo: Sorry, nowhere left to go! *throwing another fireball at his feet*
Terry: Burn Knuckle!
Nemo’s eyes widen in surprise as Terry bursts through the flames, his ki enveloped fist slamming straight into her face. She flies backwards, clutching her jaw as she crashes onto the platform.
Terry: *looking impressed as Nemo climbs to her feet* Not bad kid, you’re a lot tougher than you look.
Nemo: That? That was nothing. *a slightly mad grin comes over her face, while purple fire flecked with green sparks starts to surround her as she lets Orochi power and Mako energy flow through her body* *Now* we’re ready to have some fun!
Written by The Real Nemo 10-10-2002 08:52 PM
Nemo: Fight harder Mr. Bogard, I’m barely feeling this!
Terry reacts quickly, reversing Nemo’s grip and flipping her straight over his head, slamming her to the ground with all his strength, and cracking the platform with the force of it. Nemo just smiles and teleports away as Terry attempts to bring his good elbow down on her face.
Nemo: That was pretty good. *hurls a cascade of purple flame at him* But I’m still not having enough fun!
Terry: Power wave!
As Terry’s ki attack cancels out the flames he charges through toward Nemo, catching her with a side kick that lifts her off her feet. Terry doesn’t waste a moment, immediately jumping into his Rising Tackle technique, fists and feet striking Nemo repeatedly as he spins through the air, before flipping over and landing on his feet when she finally hits the ground.
Nemo: *shaking her head to clear it as she stands up* Hmmm, I liked that.
Terry: *astonished* Who *are* you kid?
Nemo: I *told* you that already. I’m *Nemo* and this is *my* tournament! Now entertain me Mr. Bogard! *Nemo teleports in front of him, and Terry doubles over as she hops up and drives her knee into his stomach* Isn’t that what you’re best at, entertaining people? *she jumps up again, slamming both fists into his head, then kicking him in the face as he goes down, sending him flying onto his back* Well isn’t it?
Terry leaps to his feet and wipes some blood off his face.
Terry: *under his breath* She’s incredibly strong, and completely insane! Only one chance here…
Nemo: I’m *talking* to *you* Mr. Bogard! *throwing an Orochi fireball at his face*
Terry: *raises both arms to block the attack, cringing a little as the flames scorch his arms* Just a little closer…
Nemo: *teleporting in front of him* Are you listening? You’d better not be ignoring me!
Terry: POWER GEYSER!!!
Nemo’s eyes go wide as Terry’s fist slams into the ground at her feet, causing an explosion of ki that tears into the platform, sending up clouds of dust and debris in its wake. The crowd starts to mummer as the smoke begins to clear away, and Terry breathes a sigh of relief.
Terry: Okay! *tossing his cap off*
The hat never reaches the ground, as it suddenly goes up in flames, turning to ash in instant and blowing away with the rest of the dust.
Nemo: *still standing in front of Terry, her clothes tattered and nearly torn off, her features twisted with insane delight* What… gave you… the idea… that we… were finished?
Terry: No way…
Nemo: I’m the only one… who gets to decide… when a match is over.
Terry rushes forward and kicks Nemo in the head, but she doesn’t even budge as she low blows him, then grabs him by the head and slams it into the ground.
Nemo: *sick giggle* Why would you want to stop… right when I’m finally starting to enjoy myself? *wings of purple fire open up on her back* You’re not being a very good sport Mr. Bogard, frankly I would have expected better from you. *cute smile* Goodbye!
A flash of Orochi fire slams into the platform like lightning, tearing through Terry Bogard as it goes. It lifts him off the ground briefly, and he has time to cry out in agony before the flames leave him suddenly, allowing him fall to the ground, completely senseless.
Nemo: *face seeming to calm instantly* All right! *twirls around and gives a cute victory pose before jumping out of the ring* Hey Seth-sempai where’s that ice-cream I asked for? *looking down at herself* Oh, and can you get me some new clothes too?

She takes Seth by the hand and leaves with him, pausing briefly in front of Genma's group to look at Keiya.

Genma: So what are you going to do? She's damn strong if she can shrug off most of what Terry is capable of. And she did reportedly kill one of the local inhabitants here. One of the *major* inhabitants.
Keiya: I have my ways of dealing with matters such as these. You'll see in due time. Besides, what does it matter to you? Anyone of us could have duplicated her feat in the ring.
Genma: True, it's just that you've heard what she's capable of from our information. Just be careful.
Keiya: No need to worry. Instead, concentrate on your own health. Or have you forgotten who you are about to face?

Pellcia carefully watched the sky, slowly flicking the dial on her sword to low. There was a bang sound nearby as a disk shaped object was lauched into the sky. Without stopping even to aim Pellcia fired a blue energy blast the hit the disk dead center. She spun around and blasted another disk that was launched behind her. Several more disks were lauched from different directions but Pell gracefully blasted each one with little or no effort. As the last one flew into the air Pell took a few running steps and leaped high into the air. There was a sound of metal being cut and Pellcia landed on the ground a few meters away in a dramatic pose as the two metal pieces landed on the ground behind her.
Servent: Bravo Miss Pell. 10 out of 10.
Servent: Is there something wrong....
Pellcia: ...Nothing's wrong. I just have to train more....that's all.
Pellcia flicked the dial on her sword up to 2 and it begain glowing a bright green. SHe took aim at a nearby boulder and fired. The massive green colored blast flew out from the tip of the sword and compleatly destoryed the rock.....and all the land around it.
Servent 2: Miss Pell, your match will soon begin.
Pellcia: I know. I'm coming.
Pellcia couldn't help but glance with pride at all the special little weapons she had created just for this one fight. Finally.....It was time to prove to everybody that she wasn't some weakling. She would beat Genma......Even if she had to destory everything else to do it.

*Seth froms a PD gate ahead of them*
Seth: Just follow me Nemo.
*Seth gently takes Nemo's hand and leads her into the glowing gate. On the other side they appear in the garden of a huge castle. Flowers of every size, shape and color grow over much of it.*
Seth: Here we are, My own personal dimention. Here, I can make anything I want become real, I can alter reality any way I want and I can change it to fit my mood. But......for today......I'll leave that up to you.
*A box of chocolate and flowers appear in front of Nemo's face and float into her hands.*

She runs a little ways into the garden, and twirls around to get a view of the place.
Nemo: Oh, this is so cool! I can't decide! *thinks a little* Make water... lots of water! Make a fountain right here in the middle, a really huge one!

*At a snap of his fingers there is a flash of blue and yellow light as matter froms out of thin air and takes shape into a giant fountain that reached high above the two.

*The water that now covers Nemo begins to sparkle. More water from the geyser flows up around her and creates a barrier of water around Nemo, blocking her from view. Them the water parts and Nemo is no longer wearing her old clothes but a white dress that looked good enough to be wore by royality and a golden crown sat upon her head. Seth, noticeing his clothes were rather ugly as well, did the same to himself. Now, he wore a black tux that seemed to glow.*
Seth: Don't worry about getting the clothes wet. I've made it so that the water will just roll off.
