Paintra grabs a new canvas and hastily paints a sized-up single-headed Landia - the actual dragon, not some gijinka counterpart.
The Landia comes to life, emerging from the canvas in 3-dimensional form. Paintra jumps on the dragon's back and it flies circles over Maelstrom Ridley, spitting fireballs at him.
Mr. Pew Pew throws a Whole Fruit Pie.
Sonic raises his Dream Rod and starts charging his transformation.
Pseudo Super Sonic: 1/3
Maelstrom Ridley bats away the fire and lightning casually, then dodges the pie with surprising grace. It screeches again as LEGO bricks form out of the thin air around it and come together to make a four-legged, mechanical Spiderling.
Maelstrom Ridley spews a torrent of bright purple LEGO fire at Miles and sweeps it toward everyone else on the ground, while the Spiderling lunges teeth-first at Mr. Pew Pew, intent on biting him.

A massive curved black sword appears in the woman's hand out of nowhere, almost as if it had always been there. She dives face-first into the ground and disappears without a trace. She then surges out of Mr. Pew-Pew's shadow and her sword swings in a flash, hopefully bisecting the Spiderling mid-lunge.
"Ok, so that did jack squat..." Miles quipped as the lightning simply bounced off of him. On closer inspection, there was something...off about that aura of Ridley's. As the purple fire came towards her, she projected a shield out of soul energy to withstand the attack though she was pushed back from the force.
She knew she had to try something though and that's when she spotted the stalactites overhead, "Here goes...Raichu!! Shoot the ceiling with Thunderbolt!!" His/her aura lifted off her and formed into a projection of said Pokemon who unleashed a powerful lightning bolt on the stalactites hanging overhead.
She jump above the flames, and toss her blood at the atrocity, in the shape of a crescent moon.
The Spiderling is not bisected. Instead, it gets smashed to pieces on impact, leaving a pile of LEGO bricks.
After dropping to avoid the flames, Mr. Pew Pew looks at the LEGO bricks and ponders to himself.
The stalactite breaks and collapses on Maelstrom Ridley. The LEGO bits comprising his aura turn inert and get blown all over the cavern as the rubble pins him to the ground and he takes damage from the other attacks.
This prompts Paintra to land and ponder to herself as well.
Sonic is barely out of the range of the fire breath.
Pseudo Super Sonic: 2/3
Maelstrom Ridley, while pinned, is still able to conjure up Spiderlings. Two of them appear. One skitters over to Rouge and tries to whack her with one of its large forelimbs, and the other lunges for Paintra to bite at her.
Rouge is whacked but it does less damage than it should, and she slash back at him.
The woman swings her sword vertically. Three dark rends, like claw marks from a giant beast, form in the air in front of her. Each of these shadow waves is then launched at a different target - two for the spiders, one for Ridley.
Seeing that their random idea had actually worked, Miles prepared to launch a larger attack on the temporarily pinned down Ridley, only to notice the Spiderlings going on the attack. Seeing one going for Paintra, she ran forward while conjuring an oversized hammer from Soul Energy and running up a set of stairs also formed from said energy before leaping off and hoping to aim her downward swing just right to smash it apart.
The Spiderlings break apart, and Maelstrom Ridley gets hit by the shadow wave just before he manages to push the rubble off himself.
The translucent studs and 1x1x1 bricks that were strewn across the battlefield gravitate back towards Maelstrom Ridley, solidifying as his aura once again.
Mr. Pew Pew looks at the bricks left over from the three destroyed Spiderlings so far (which were not pulled into the aura), notices that their pieces are moving together to form an incoherent pile, and a plan hatches. He starts putting the bricks together, and with each connection he makes, some motes of blue light disperse from the bricks and drift into the air.
Paintra looks at what Mr. Pew Pew is doing and rushes over. Unfortunately, the Spiderling had hit her Landia and destroyed it before being destroyed itself. "Hmmm... Ooh, I know!" Paintra starts going to work with her paintbrush, painting the once-grey bricks into different colors as Mr. Pew Pew puts them together.
Pseudo Super Sonic: 3/3
Sonic transforms into his Pseudo Super form. He waits for Maelstrom Ridley's next move.
Maelstrom Ridley spits three huge balls of explosive pink fire in quick succession - one at Miles, one at Rumia, and one at Rouge. He then picks up some rubble from the fallen stalactite and starts hurling it at the other stalactites in the cavern, prematurely collapsing them to prevent his enemies from using the same trick on him again.
Finally, he screeches, pointing his head skyward as flames spurt out, as more Maelstrom-infected LEGO pieces start to come together behind him. It's unclear what they're making, but it looks like something big.
Rumia moves in a blur, avoiding the enormous fireball aimed at her. She then takes out a black revolver and fires a black bullet, not at Ridley but at whatever is forming behind him, trying to interrupt the process. The bullet will explode into darkness upon hitting anything.
Meanwhile, several moths that seem to be made out of moonlight emerge from Rumia's body. They don't attack, instead they scatter around the cave, scouting for possible cover or other elements to exploit. One of them dives into the pools, trying to determine what the strange liquid in them is.
She gets hit by the attack and is sent flying into a rock, causing her to get visibly stunned.
Creating another barrier, Miles found himself pushed back and starting to sweat. He wanted to try and drop the stalactites again but it was clear Ridley wouldn't have that as he started smashing them up. "Ok, time for new strategy." She focused and created a large circular bubble out of her energy around the fireball before heaving it back towards Ridley.
Whatever is forming behind Ridley gets smashed into a swirling mass of pieces, but does not fall. It continues constructing itself in the air.
Pseudo Super Sonic charges headfirst at Ridley.
Against both Sonic and the redirected fireball, Ridley's aura does not falter.
As for the liquid in the pools... it's some kind of Hollywood Acid.
Maelstrom Ridley leaps into the air and slams down feet-first, sending a shockwave through the cavern. He then spits a homing fireball at Sonic and one at Rumia.
Paintra puts up a picture frame to protect the in-progress construction from the shockwave.
Mr. Pew Pew grits his teeth and growls. "Almost... done... people!"
LEGO Build: 2/3
"Ok, so that aura withstands even his own attacks...good to know," Miles saw Paintra and Mr Pew Pew working on something and quickly took up a defensive position in front of them, "You guys keep working on that, and we'll cover you!" He created a protective shield in front of them before deciding to call on some more allies.
"Charizard! Flamethrower! Blastoise! Hydro Pump!!" The two projections of fully-evolved Pokemon materialized on the sides of Ridley and started shooting their respective elemental attacks at him, hoping to at least be a distraction.

Upon realizing that one of her scout moths has met a sizzly end, Rumia gets an idea. She shoots down the fireball aimed at her with another dark bullet explosion and once again shadowsteps through the darkness to nearby the location of one of the acid pools. A large black bubble of darkness starts rising out of the pool, hissing and steaming with the acid contained within. Maintaining it seems to be somewhat taxing on Rumia.
She briefly ripple, allowing her to tank the attack. She then points the tip of her sword at her foe, and sends a thin blood beam at him.
"Well, this is pretty dangerous." she remarks, eyeing an exit.
Maelstrom Ridley's aura continues to shield him for now, however...
Mr. Pew Pew and Paintra finish their construct, a gigantic thing that looks like a cuckoo clock.
The construct is facing toward the largest acid pool in the cavern, which is currently on Maelstrom Ridley's left.
"Lure him into the front of the thing!"
Maelstrom Ridley leaps up and flaps his wings, blowing razor winds at Miles, Rouge, and Rumia. He finishes by spitting a fireball at Sonic.
Sonic gets hit by the fireball and gets the Dream Rod knocked out of him, reverting to his base form.
She leaps and get cleaved in half, that said, she doesn't seems to mind as she uses her vampire strength to try to punch the beast into the way of the attack
Rumia plunges her hand into the ground, and a legion of dark arms sporting far too many joints◊ starts sprouting from the ground. A "fence" of these neutralizes the air slashes headed towards Rumia, although they get mowed down and destroyed in the process. Still more start grasping at Ridley, attempting to entangle him and drag him in front of Pew-Pew's strange contraption.
Miles saw the air slash coming and layered multiple barriers over each other to weaken the attack until finally it dissipated upon shattering the last one. Seeing Rumia trying to drag Ridley along, she clapped her hands and revealed a number of tiny orbs formed of Soul Energy.
He bent down and rolled them towards Ridley's feet in the hopes that he would step on and trigger them like powerful bombs, perhaps knocking him off-balance so he was easier to drag.
Ridley gets caught by the arms and strains against them, being pulled toward the front of the giant cuckoo clock.
He breaks free, staggering backwards... and stumbles right onto one of the orbs, blowing him fully into the danger zone.
Maelstrom Ridley turns to face the clock with suspicion, only for its face to suddenly blow open as a boxing glove on a spring flies out, delivering a punch that makes his aura explode into inert LEGO bits as it had when the stalactite fell on him, and also launching him into the acid for extra damage.
Maelstrom Ridley ignores the loss of his aura and screeches, stomping out of the acid pool as the Maelstrom construct finishes. Behold, the Spider Queen!
Both monsters screech, then the Spider Queen launches a storm of homing fireballs at everyone in the fight (except Ridley).
Ridley follows up by blanketing the area in "dumb" fireballs (not homing).

She drowns the fireball by using blood and regrows her lower body and clothes, dashing towards the spider queen and tossing javelins of blood at her.
"Yes!" Miles pumped his fist into the air at seeing them actually dealing real damage to Ridley...only for the excitement to be short-lived as he re-emerged from the acid pool with a new friend and sighed in dismay, "Great. Just great." Clothing herself in some soul energy-based armor, she called back Blastoise to start putting out the fires as she used a shield to deflect the shots sent her way.
Sending a mental message to Charizard, the projection headed to scoop up the Dream Rod and fly towards Sonic to try and return it. Miles took aim and fired a beam of soul energy from the cannon over his forearm,"We don't have long before the barrier goes back up so hit him with whatever you can spare!!"

Rumia hurls her darkness bubble at Ridley. It will burst on impact with anything, releasing the acid it contains. She then gets to dodging the fireballs and is able to do that mostly successfully, given the world she hails from, although she is blindsided by a couple of the Queen's fireballs.

Paintra gets set on fire and yelps, quickly dropping down and rolling around on the ground.
Mr. Pew Pew gets burned but not actually ignited, reeling back in discomfort. He looks at Paintra. "Yo, think you could use your magic to whip up a pair of Hypno Goggles?"
Paintra is still burning and trying to put herself out. "When - I'm not - on fire, sure!"
Sonic gets hit by some fireballs, but he is still able to retrieve his Dream Rod with the Charizard projection's help. "Thanks, Miles!" He uses a Homing Attack on the Spider Queen's head.
The Spider Queen takes damage to the legs from Rouge's blood javelins, and Sonic's Homing Attack nearly topples it over. However, it remains standing tall and stamps its forelimbs on the ground, summoning a quartet of Spiderlings.
One Spiderling leaps at Rumia, wildly swinging its forelimbs as it comes close. Another lunges to bite at Rouge. The third lunges to bite at Miles. The fourth skitters up to Mr. Pew Pew and swings a forelimb at him.
Maelstrom Ridley leaps up for another razor-wind attack, only to be shot down by Miles' energy beam and blinded by taking Rumia's makeshift acid bomb to the face. He pulls himself to his feet as his aura coalesces around him yet again - but he's still blinded in spite of his restored invulnerability. Rather than attacking, he staggers around aimlessly.
