Catching Up Edit
Juushichi sighed heavily, his hands on the steering wheel, and his feet on the gas pedal. The corvette he was driving made only a low grumble as it sped across the street, blending in with other cars on the street. His hair blew behind him due to the high winds picking up, blinding him a bit as he drove, but not enough to make him crash
It wasn't exactly a normal way to start off a scare of the city, but hey, who said he was normal?
He sighed in agitation, as his car came to an immediate slowing, stopped by heavier traffic. The drivers beside him weren't too thrilled either, honking their horns and shouting in order to somehow make the congested road go faster. "Lousy drivers... don't even know where they're going..." He muttered. "I knew I should've just--"
His thoughts were immediately interrupted, when a purple and tiny jet-like light came soaring over his head. He looked upward in surprise, but it had disappeared into the city.
"What was that?"
Shrugging, he turned back towards the road, thinking nothing of it.
That is, until he heard the explosions...
Sake meanwhile had just thrown a capsule down onto the ground and house sprang out of it. Actually it was more of a mansion. Anyway he entered and clapped his hands once turning the lights on. His sister's were out training so he could relax for once. Or so he thought...
A vicious explosion rocked the land he stood on, causing a temporary quake of the earth.
Which made Sake jump up and walk out of it's house and return it to capsule form. "Dammit! I asked for ONE day of relaxtion and what do I get?"
At the site...
Klen raised an energy blast towards another skyscraper, letting it fly straight into the bottom. The result was the beam tearing straight through, making the building shudder first, then fall like a timbered tree into other buildings, either crushing them entirely, or knocking them over as well, causing a domino effect. She smiled as the smoke built up, causing a dust storm to overwhelm the area.
She was on the loose again.
Ahatake flew up after her. "Geez woman. Can't you give me a break?!?"
"I'm afraid not, Ahatake." She replied, putting one hand in her pocket while the other still pointed towards the building. The energy orb faded from her palm. It was also noted that a bundle of clothing "I was simply looking for something to... camoflauge... myself, for the time being."
Her hair was not in the SSJ1 state anymore, and her purple locks were clearly visible.
Ahatake sighed. "You could have easily bought some clothing from a store!"
"That would've been too boring."
"It would have been decent at least!"
"Who said I was decent?!"
As they continued to argue, none of them noticed a lone figure landing on of the remaining buildings in the city, or the look of slight amusement on his face, as he folded his arms across his chest.
"Could you at least ACT decent on my planet?!?"
"Your planet was Planet Vegeta, or have you forgotten?!"
"Not really." Sake replied. "My planet was an oceanic planet. But I grew up decent there and then I discovered this planet. Earth is my home now."
"Hmph!" Klen turned away, scoffing. "Say whatever you want, I don't care..." She mused. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be leaving this wasteland..."
"By this wasteland hopdfully you mean this planet."
"Nope, just this city."
It was time to step in.
The android raised his hands to clap in mock entertainment. "Wow! That argument deserved a Nobel prize for sure!" He crowed in a cool voice.
Sake turned around and look down and saw the black-haired man. "What do you mean?" Sake asked descending. "And are you an android?"
Klen immediately looked upwards at the sound of the mocking voice, cocking an eyebrow. "So...I guess I left a straggler, huh?" She mused, smirking from ear to ear.
"You're very sharp." The android replied in a genuinely polite voice. "I just happened to come by here when I heard the sound of bombs going off, and..." He raised his shoulders in a light shrug. "I happened to find two Saiyan's out here..."
"Part Saiyan." Sake replied. "I'm a fused Saiyan. I fused with Android 0."
Immediately, the android narrowed his eyes down on him, leaping off of the building and landing expertly on his feet. "Fusion, eh? And with an android, no doubt..." He mused.
However, his gaze was not the only one on Ahatake now, for Klen's shocked eyes appeared on him as well.
Sake turned to Klen. "Certainly you must have wondered why you could never feel my Chi?" He laughed.
She, however, wasn't in a laughing mood.
She clenched her fists once more. "Bastard, you dare insult my pride?!" She snarled, turning to face him, the android gone from her sight at the moment.
Sake sighed. "What do you mean?"
"Making me think you were a worthy fighter... when instead you were using the assistance of an android!" She said irritably. "The true power of a Saiyan is only that of his or her own. And you rely on a toaster to help you!"
"It has it's benefits." Sake replied. "Like unlimited Chi. And there's "toaster" right there." He pointed to the android.
"That's too bad..." It mused, raising one hand towards Sake, fingers glowing.
Then, without warning, he slammed them straight into Ahatake's face. "There's no fun if you go around blowing up everything with a single attack..."
Sake started to glow and suddenly split in two. Ahatake was standing on what side and Seth on the other.
"What the?" Ahatake gasped.
If anything, Klen's eyes grew even wider, as she stared at the two dumbfounded fusees. "What in the hell...?"
Seth was in no different condition, staring at his hands in a mixture of astonishment and shock. He couldn't even speak, and his mind was clogged in the moment.
The other android, however, simply smiled. "I took the liberty "re-wiring" that little Fusion of yours, splitting you back into your two bodies." He explained, his fingers stopping the glow.
Ahatake's tail twitched angrily. "We needed that power you fool."
Seth's mind immediately cleared once again, and he turned an indignant expression towards his Saiyan counterpart. "Who;'s this 'we'?" He retorted, standing back up and glaring. "I needed nothing, you coward!"
Klen blinked a few times. "Did that fusion happen willlingly?" She wondered.
"I could kick your ass from here to Timbuktu with my current power level." Ahatake told the Android. "And you know it."
"Hah!" Seth sneered at him. "You'd wear down before you could even land the finishing blow!"
The stranger android merely stared in slight boredom, mixed with a bit of exasperation. "This wasn't really what I had expected..."
Ahatake snatched the earring off Seth's ear put it safely in his pocket, and stored his in there was well. "You wanna take me on?"
"I'll take you down, primate--"
"Hey!" Klen shouted, immediately intervening. "In case you've forgotten, the other android's still standing here!!"
This caught their attention. "Oh yeah." Ahatake turned to him. "Why did you do what you just did?"
He shrugged. "Since you were powerful enough to perform that kind of fusion, you could easily overwhelm any opponent. I myself, though, wanted to see how strong you were individually." He explained in a calm, but dry voice.
"You can kill him first." Ahatake laughed and pushed Seth in front of him.
"What?!" Seth stared in shock at the android, then at Ahatake. "Why me? You were the one who bragged about how you could kick my ass to Timbuktu and back!" He protested.
"I know." Ahatake replied. "So I say let the weak die first!"
Seth growled in response, turning to face the android. "Fine, then. I'll show you who the weak one is!" He replied, clenching his fists in a battle pose. "Stand back."
"I'm ready when you are." Seth told the fellow Android.
He smiled in return, settling into a Vegito-like fighting stance. "I'm all set over here."
Seth raised his hand outward and fired a Power Blitz at him.
In turn, the android knocked it aside, letting it crash into another building. Or rather, the remains of the building.
Seth stopped for a moment. "I never got your name."
"Ah, that's right!" The android's eyes widened for a second, before he laughed and slapped himself on the forehead. "Where are my manners? My android name is Android 17.5, but feel free to call me Juushichi."
"I'm Android 0 more commonly known," He pointed at Ahatake. "By this fool as Seth."
Juushichi shook his head slightly, his stance relaxing a bit. "A pleasure to meet you, Zero." He replied.
Klen, meanwhile, had folded her arms across her chest, fingers tapping her upper arms. It was clear that she was impatient for the fight to begin, as if annihilating the city hadn't satisfied her completely.
Seth outstretched his hand again and fired a Photon Flash as Juushichi.
This time, Juushichi ran forward, clasping his hands together and swinging them forward. They collided with the blast, sending it back at Seth like a beach ball.
Seth kicked the attack down resulted in a massive explosion.
As the smoke cleared, Juuschishi looked over at Seth, standing straight. "I hope for your sake that's not the best you can do!" He warned.
"It's not." Seth replied. "I'll show you something I unfortuantely picked up from Ahatake." He cupped his hands at his side and a blue-orb appeared. "Ka...me....ha...me...ha!" He fired the blue-is white beam at 17.5.
Instead of dodging this time, he simply stood by, watching as the Kamehameha came closer and closer. Soon, it enveloped him in its holy light, causing another explosion to rock the land.
Seth waited for the smoke to clear.
Juuschishi smirked, tilting his head to the side as if Seth hadn't just tried to annihilate him.
Klen's eyes widened in shock. "N...not a scratch on him...!" She thought, her mouth opening a bit.
Indeed, 17.5 had not suffered even a minor injury, although the attack clearly hit. "You have good aim, too.." He commented.
"That should have obliterated you." Seth gasped.
"It should've?" Juuschishi raised an eyebrow. "Well then, you must be overestimating your own strength, then. Care for another try?"
Seth growled and sent a Photon Flash at Juuschishi.
It collided, once again, head-on. But when the smoke cleared, there was still no sign of injury. Juuschishi slowly walked towards Seth, an amused smile on his face.
Seth charged at him and punched him in the face and stomach multiple but there was no sign of injury and he was left looking stupid. 'What the...?"
This time, Juushichi's fist swung upwards, smashing into Seth's gut with an incredible force.
Seth cuaghed up what could have been blood.
Juuschichi didn't stop there.
An elbow was sent flying into Seth's chin, sending him on his back and into the ground. Klen winced involuntarily.
"Even the proud Saiyan-ness can get repulsed by battle?" Ahatake laughing.
"A-ah..." Seth gasped, unable to speak a reply as the pain raced through his stomach.
"So that's the extent of your strength, Zero? I am not impressed." Juushichi mocked, smirking and folding his arms across his chest.
Ahatake floated in and moved Seth out of the way. "Now it's my turn." Ahatake muttered. "I'll smash him."
Juushichi cocked an eyebrow at the Saiyan. "You claim that you will smash me..." He mused, standing back up. "But let's see about that."
"I will." Ahatake said his hair standing on end and losing his pupils. His hair gained a reddish-tint as a golden aura surrounded him.
In response, Juuschichi changed back to his relaxed stance, fists clenched, and legs spread out evenly. His eyes narrowed once again in a hawk-like glance, as he prepared for his opponent's next attack.
Ahatake turned to look at Klen. "Bet you can't even use this form."
"A Quasi Super Saiyan?" The female Saiyan cocked an eyebrow and frowned in disapproval and amusement. "That's nothing compared to SSJ1, and yet you use it instead."
"It's fun to start off weak in a fight and let the excitement flow!" Ahatake replied.
"Tch. Have fun getting yourself stomped, then..."
"You have no true joy for fighting then." Ahatake replied.
"I believe my joy of fighting differs from yours, you waste of Saiyan blood." Klen retorted, turning her nose up a bit. "And I happen to prefer at least making my enemy struggle in order to achieve that."
"But it's no fun if you don't get it a bit." Ahatake muttered and her charged in at Juushichi and punched him in teh face, his auara bruning his artificial skin.
A strangled yell, while a fist slamming into Ahatake's gut in the same fashion that he had felled Seth, was the responses of the attack. Juushichi himself staggered back, clutching the burnt area with one hand. "No wonder you changed to that form... intending to cook me, are ya?" He asked cautiously.
"This may be the weakest form of Super Saiyan." Ahatake replied. "But it has it's uses." He clutched his stomach
"I see..." Juushichi muttered. "Well, I guess I'll just have to keep my distance now..."
"Nope. Just wary."
"I see. I hate cautious fighters."
"Then you're gonna want to kill me when this is over..."
"Maybe." Ahatake replied as he ascended to Super Saiyan. "But let's kick it up a notch."
Juushichi nodded. "Fair enough."
They charged at each other and clashed Ahatake not lasting long without having to ascend to SSJ2. By now night had fallen.
So far, Juushichi was holding up against the relentless assault by Ahatake with relative ease, relying mostly on defensive measures in order to make him burn out more energy. Now, he settled into his stance once again, waiting patiently.
Ahatake was lying on teh ground breathing heavily. "Great..." He thought. "I'm gonna lose and let these two run amok on these planet. NO! I won't let that happen!" He tilted his head only slightly and saw the moon. His eyes widened. Suddenly he began to bulk and his muscles size increased as he himself increased in size, and he grew fur. "Golden fur. He roared and began to break rock formations and buildings. He had become an Oozaru.
Klen could only stare in horror, as the golden ape rose over their heads. "A Golden Ape?! Impossible!"
"Shit..." Juushichi muttered, stepping back a bit. "What a bad time..."
Ahatake began to fire massive beams all around some of them just missing Klen and Juushichi.
They in turn, jumped and leaped to the air, barely avoiding the blasts.
"Fuck..." Klen swore inside of her head, as she could only stare at the raging ape. "What to do now?!"
Ahatake spat our fire that burned the already destroyed buildings.
Juushichi frowned. "Are you angry, Ahatake? That you cannot beat me so easily?" He called out to the beast.
That snapped Ahatake back into his senses. He growled and spat fire in Juushichi's direction.
He instantly dodged, re-appearing with his back facing Klen. "Wha...?"
"Don't just stand there, help me out!" He insisted, pointing over to the monstrous beast. "If we don't do something, he's gonna destroy us!"
That made Klen scowl in annoyance. But, as much as she hated to admit it, he was right. "All right, fine..." She sighed in relentment.
Suddenly Ahatake stopped moving and he began to growl.
Now was their chance.
Back to back, both Klen and Juushichi let out a yell, as they fired a powerful ki blast from their palms. It was aimed directly for the monster's head, with the intent to bore straight through it.
But it was too late. Ahatake had begun to shrink all while roaring.
Klen narrowed her eyes, as the beam connected behind Ahatake, but missing him completely now. "You're surprising me all the more, Ahatake..." She muttered to herself.
Ahatake was standing completely still his appearance had changed. His hair was black and long though not as long as a Super Saiyan 3, and he was mostly covered in red fur except for his face, chest and hands.
He looked up at his enemies. "What....is this power?"
But Klen instantly knew. She gritted her teeth and narrowed her eyes in rage. "No! He couldn't have!!!" She thought in fury and shock, fists clenching. "That weakling?! Evolved before I did?!"!
Juushichi looked on with a more confused look, albeit more relaxed. "So... it was a simple phase of morphing." He muttered thoughtfully.
Ahatake began to walk towards Juushichi slowly. "I'm not sure what this power is." He said his voice rough. "But I intend to use it to beat you."
Klen's angered voice called over. "I don't intend to let that little attack slip by so easily, Saiyan reject!" She snarled, powering up to SSJ1. "I'll kill you first!"
Ahatake pushed her back with a Kiai. "Too bad. I'm not fighting you."
Roughly, Klen was knocked on her back, trying to stand once again.
Jinshichi raised his fists in anticpation. "So.... you lucked out and got yourself a new power, eh?" He asked coolly. "Well, let's see how well it can last!"
"I'll be kind enough to give you the first move."
She didn't reply, but instead took off, that golden aura flailing around her as she turned back to her SSJ1 form.
Super Saiyan 4 Edit
"As you wish!"
With that, Juu rushed at Ahatake, flying like a bullet towards him.
But right before he reached Ahatake held his arm back and punched teh air sending a massive Kiai at the Robot.
Immediately, he side-stepped, eyes widening. Then, he grinned. "Looks like I might have to get serious now, huh?" He asked.
Ahatake cupped his hands at his side. "Do what you want."
Not willing to give him a chance, he vanished, re-appearing in front of Ahatake and delivering a high kick straight into his neck. The result was the Super Saiyan 4 knocked to the ground, and Juushichi landing on his feet. "You know, you're not too fast when you're trying to blast..." He said in a joking voice.
Ahatake got up with ease. "What was that?" He asked. "I barely felt that attack at all."
"Oh?" Juu thrust his leg out. "I guess I'm not kicking hard enough."
Ahatake actually caught the leg and threw the android to the ground.
"NN!" Juushichi winced in pain, as he slammed into the ground. He backflipped on his feet, however. "Ok... not bad."
Ahatake cupped his hands at side forming a red orb. "KAMEHAMEHA X10!" He cried firing a massive Kamehameha at point blank rage.
Juushichi's eyes widened, and he only had a fraction of a second to use Instant Transmission, barely avoiding the attack. He took to the air once again, stopping slowly.
"That would've killed me for sure..."
"You're pretty fast for a hunk of metal."
"Yes, well, I try pretty hard."
Ahatake took one step and in an instant he was in Juu's face. "I'm faster." He punched Juu in the gut and smashed him down into the ground.
In reponse, the android grabbed Ahatake by his neck, twisting him around and smashing him into the ground. A crater was created around them due to the force.
But if it was supposed to be hurting Ahatake didn't feel it. "You're weak Android." Ahatake muttered, and he blasted the Android off him.
In turn, he backflipped off of the man before it could envelop him completely, standing back up. He merely shrugged. "Maybe your pain receptors just aren't working right."
"You just don't want to admit you're weak." Ahatake replied. He cupped his hands at his sides. "KA.....ME...HA...ME..." Ahatake chanted.
He never got to finish.
Instantly, he was sent forcefully into the air, by some sort of invisible force. Then, he was thrown like a ball, straight into one of the buildings with an intense speed.
And he crashed right into it but got up only slightly scratched. He brushed dust of his shoulder's. "Hmm... Telekineses. Nice power if you're desperate."
"Quit trying to blow off your own injuries, boy!" Juushichi countered, descending onto the ground. "You may have gained a little bit of power, but you haven't flown above me yet!"
"That's what you think." Ahatake called up and he charged another Kamehameha. He fired the massive red beam at Juu.
"Hm!" The android flew out the way immediately.
"What a coward." Ahatake muttered. "Too scared to be hit."
With a roar, Juushichi rushed at Ahatake, torpedoing a fist directly into his gut. The result forced him to double over in mid-air, allowing the android to follow up with a kick to knock him into the ground.
But Ahatake merely responded with multiple punches to Juu's figure.
It became a fierce exchange of kicks and punches, one trying to outclass and dominate the other. But there was no sign of giving out, no sign of fatigue, and no mind to surrender. They were locked in an intense stalemate, blocking and returning each other's blows fiercely.
Ahatake decided to variate and added a burst of Chi to his punch and punched Juu right in the stomach.
The android let out a strangled gasp, but his own fist clenched, slamming into Ahatake's own gut in retaliation. He frowned, as he saw his opponent cough up blood. "See? My blows are affecting you, after all!"
"You just got lucky." Ahatake replied as he kicked the Android slamming him into the ground.
He grunted in pain as he did so, but he backflipped onto his feet immediately. This was going nowhere fast. Neither of them were wearing out, and it was going to be a long time before he did. He had to admit, though, Ahatake's strength was very deadly indeed. He almost regretted not going onto the offensive earlier.
He folded his arms across his chest, smiling. "Ahatake!"
He raised his hand up calmly. "You win. I got what I wanted out of this fight."
Ahatake's eyes widened and his tail twitched curiously. "What do you mean, you got what you wanted?"
"Didn't I say it before?" Juushichi raised his hands up in disbelief. "I wanted to test your strength! That's why I unfused you in the first place!"
Ahatake descended to the ground. "That's why?" His fur began to recede, his tail changed back to brown and his hair returned to it's normal bowl cut style. "Well I won't deny I did have fun."
Ocean blue eyes stared in a smirking look at the Trunks-like Saiyan. "Really? I thought you were trying to kill me." He commented, placing his hands into his pockets casually.
"I can do that any day." Ahatake replied casually.
"You only got lucky, boy." Juuschischi countered, turning away from him and raising one hand in a lazy wave. "But, if you manage to train yourself more fully with that newfound power of yours... I'd say you'd have a much better chance of fighting me, don't you agree?"
"Whatever you say tin-man."
"Heh..." That made the android chuckle. "Have fun with your little girlfriend..."
His smirk got even wider, as out of the corner of his eye, Klen stared at him with shock, a faint blush appearing on her features. "W-wha--?!"
"What?" Ahatake looked incredulous. "She's not my girlfriend!"
"Strange, because I thought I heard her cry your name when you turned into that golden monkey..."
It was an outright lie, of course. But it increased Klen's blush even more. "I did not!" She shouted indignantly.
"Well she is cute but I'm not sure she likes me anyway." Ahatake muttered. He saw something move and out of nowhere just blasted it.
It just happened to be one of Klen's energy blasts that had been directed towards him.
"Hmph!" Klen herself, however, folded her arms across her chest, turning the other way.
With that, the android boosted off into the sky.
"You have problems with compliments, don't you?" Ahatake asked.
Klen looked over at him, frown fading slightly. "I'm not supposed to be cute..." She insisted. However, she was a bit hesitant in her tone. "A warrior like me shouldn't be even considered cute!"
"You're still a girl!" Ahatake replied. "A female's still a female, Saiyan or not!"
"Strange...." Her eyes narrowed at him peeringly. "Before our fight, you had called me hideous..."
"That transformation was hideous!" Ahatake replied, trying not to remember it.
"Well... I was 'still a girl' then... what were you implying?" The Saiyan female said smugly, putting her hands on her hips.
"You looked like an old hag then." Ahatake said. "Hags and girls are two different things." His tail twitched again.
That only seemed to increase the level of Klen's smug attitude, as she tilted her head to the side a bit. Oh, how cute was he when he had that irritated expression on his face, and the way he twitched his tail. The mischevious part of her encouraged that if they had another fight, she would be plentiful to tick him off even more...
Wait a minute.
She backtracked her thoughts. "Did I just think he was.... CUTE?"
It was at that moment, her eyes widened, smile vanishing. She mentally slapped herself.
WHat the hell was she thinking? Had that android's words really gotten to her that much? She had to get a grip...
Ahatake stared at her his tail still twitching. "You seem upset."
She shook her head, turning to glare at Ahatake. "I don't need to be staying here bantering with you... I'm out of here!" She said, turning around roughly and preparing herself to follow Juushichi's actions.
"We'll meet up again!" Ahatake called after her. "Trust me!"
She didn't respond, but instead took off to the sky, a scowl expressed on her face. "This Earth air must be working wonders on my mind..."
From the ground, she disappeared like a blink of a star in the sky.
Ahatake sighed and kicked Seth's side. "Get up you!"
"Ow..." The unconscious android stirred, grunting as he struggled to sit up, rubbing the back of his head. "Where's the fire..."
"You really are stupid." Ahatake sighed. "The enemy is gone."
That immediately brought Seth to his senses, and he pulled himself back up to his feet, looking around incredulously. "Must've been some battle you had..." He commented, surveying the destruction and wreckage. "This entire city is a wastedump."
"It was eventful." Ahatake replied. "I gained a new power."
"Oh, really now?" Seth asked skeptically, cocking an eyebrow as he turned back to his Saiyan counterpart.
Ahatake's power level began to rise and his roared as his shirt dissapeared his he grew fur, his hair spiked and lengthened, his tail changed solors and his eyes turned golden.
"This is my new transformation."
Needless to say, the android's widened eyes and astonished mouth gape were all that was needed to tell he was impressed. "But....how?!" He could only stutter.
And Ahatake pointed to the moon.
When Seth's eyes glanced up, his eyes immediately softened in understanding. "Oh..."
"Now there's no possible way you can take me on."
"So you've gained a little bit more hair on your chest.." Seth lowered his head, turning up his nose. "Doesn't mean that you won't wear out even faster!"
"I won't." Ahatake replied. "This form is different than the Super Saiyan 3."
"Hmph. So you say...."
Ahatake returned to normal form. "YOU need to rest." He muttered and threw out a capsule turning into a house. "You're welcome to stay though the twin terrors should be arriving any minute now."
Seth closed his eyes and gritted his teeth, an anime vein appearing on his forehead. "Of course..." He grumbled in irritation, folding his arms across his chest and walking towards it.
Ahatake opened the door and clapped his hands once. "Don't break anything, this house capsule cost half a million Zenni."
A sigh came in response. "Don't worry, I'm too dazed right now to start smashing stuff."
"Good." Ahatake replied as he sat down in front of teh TV. "There's an electrical outlet by that closet you can plug yourself into."
That made Seth stop abruptly, craning his head to give Ahatake a murderous glare. But, he refused to say anything, heading in the direction of the guest bedroom.
Ahatake laughed just as his sister's walked through the door.
He told them everything that happened, not knowing that more trouble lay ahead....
