Ithaeus is unable to dodge the chains and is subsequently struck by the fireballs.
"I see. Lena's song alone will not be enough to put you two to rest. Good. I was aching to find someone worthy of my art for too long." With that said, he whistles.
An armored and saddled dragon skeleton◊, radiating a cold aura, flies into the Arena at his command, and Ithaeus mounts it. Beating its ragged wings, the bone wyrm begins rising into the sky as Ithaeus sheathes his sword and takes from his back, where you might expect a shield to be... a lyre made of engraved and polished bone, with many strings of different colors.
As he begins plucking the strings, a chorus of ethereal wails fills the air as a group of spectral floating women surrounds Ithaeus. They all seem to be from different races, with some wearing heavy armor, others leather, and others magic robes. But they all have something in common - an anguished, pained expression on their faces, mirroring the mask on Ithaeus' left shoulder and the hilt of his sword Lena. Ithaeus grins madly, the "strings" of his evil lyre commanding his harem of ghosts to draw their weapons and prepare for battle...
He gives Nebula another look of sheer wretchedness. "What sweet music they make... Soon, very soon, my dear, you'll be joining them, too. I look forward to hearing your voice sing for me."
"GO TO HELL!!!" The sisters cried out in defiance and disgust, the latter at seeing the pain and misery he was putting his "harem" through, "You treat both the living and the dead like they're nothing but your tools, and for that, you WILL be punished!!!" Nebula held out her fist, and Miles nodded, smashing his fist with hers as both spiraled together and the cyclone they made flew into the air before becoming an egg...
The egg pulsated before beams of light shined forth and from it emerged a familiar giant winged figure. Muscular and strong with a white mask over its face and huge wings with a tail in place of arms and legs. However, unlike the old Void Termina, this one didn't look evil as its feathers were now white and its whole body and the hearts on its tail were now a mix of white and black.
Its horns were smooth and seemed to shimmer gold too. The entity then flew towards the dragon skeleton while it created orbs of pure energy that fired off beams towards the skeleton dragon.
"I was working with him all along, if you ask." says Baldr. "My... whole job was to be his bodyguard, in exchange, I get to fight the big guy." he says, pointing his thumb at Thor.
Loki screams in pain as he is engulfed by the attacks, utterly destroying his body and causing the mad god to vanish forever. Odin himself is unfazed by them though, taking his time to brush off his shoulder and staying neutral when threatened by Gorr.
Yes, yes, yes, yes. You are our Ragnarok, our cups will be filled with blood. I was old by the time your ancestors crawled out of the primordial pit of existence, boy. I have heard this kind of speech long before you picked up that sword. Now go, if you want to savor your victory.
Myth!Thor spins his hammer, Baldr cracks his knuckles and Odin himself shift a little.
We could attack now too but I only concern myself with threats. he says, before looking over at the trio.
Thank you for your aid. For that, I will not interfere in your fights, Narktus. And you might ask for my help in other fights, you two. he says.
"OR YOU COULD SEND ME !!!!"

"I see." Raijin finishes his dessert.
Terlette is taking her time.
Narktus shrugs, then points at MCU!Thor. "Regardless of circumstances, this does not mean we will meet on cordial terms next time. Thanks, though." He teleports out.
Trainer Reyna is lying on her back, looking up at the ceiling light of her hotel room as she continues messing with the DNA Splicers.
Her Blaziken walks over to the side of her bed and rests its head on the sheets.
"Not now, Blaziken. I think I've almost solved it..."
Something sparks, and Reyna drops the DNA Splicers out of shock, promptly rolling off the bed and onto the floor. She sighs as she stands up and looks at the item now lying on her bed. "Alright, Koko, you're right, I've been spending too much time on the Splicers. Let's go take a walk, guys."

She relaxes in her chair, relishing the relative lack of pain.
"So... do I have to do anything in particular anymore? Or do I just take the powerboost and run off?"
"With that pest eliminated, I imagine Leikinn and his fellow Asgardians will be quite pleased... unless this Loki somehow returns, of course."
With Myth!Loki's demise, Thor and Loki turn to Myth!Odin.
"I would have appreciated knowing about this plan of yours, Odin; especially the part about Baldur- the man who threw a psychotic tantrum when my friend called him an Asgardian instead of an Aesir- seemingly being a double agent this entire time," The god of thunder says. "Having said that... I am nonetheless grateful for your aid, Allfather. Perhaps you could aid us with other threats to this realm, such as the Assassins you've likely heard of."
Loki, on the other hand, grins at the Allfather.
"Heh... you played that insufferable bastard like a violin, then cut his strings. Consider me impressed."
"We're done. You're free to do as you wish with your newfound power. Have fun, I guess."
Terlette raises an eyebrow. "Do try not to run rampant. Since I'm also a Keeper, Raijin's clauses mean I'm obligated to not fight you."
"Eh, someone else will stop 'er if she tries."
Azula thinks about the other people she's met here, particularly Miles.
"... Fine. I can still use it in my homeworld, if I find a way back?"
"... I never actually thought about that, but I suppose you might be able to."
Terlette reaches an arm around to feel her own back as if pondering on the nature of her Keeper mark.
Raijin stands up again. "Well, this has been a delightful afternoon-slash-evening. Farewell, everyone." He teleports away.

She awkwardly sits near Terlette for a bit.
The conversation slowly dies.
Terlette continues eating her dessert. "... You look like former royalty. I'm borne of nobility, myself."
"Well... I was the princess of the Fire Nation, before it sold out to the Empire. My brother Zuko stood behind as a figurehead rather than preserve his cultural pride."
Her distaste for her brother is obvious.
"Ah. I abandoned my home and family to escape an arranged marriage."
Terlette finally finishes eating, and stands up. "Well, I'd rather not force out a conversation, so I will be off now." She heads for the door.
She stretches and takes her leave as well.
Fuckery with the passage of time for the sake of plot convenience is in full effect here.
NLA, late at night
Trainer Reyna is lying topless on the floor of her hotel room. The DNA Splicers in her hands... no longer look like the DNA Splicers.
She rolls onto her back, laughing half-heartedly while wiping sweat off her brow. "Oh, at last! I think it's done, guys!"
Lucasio makes a series of noises that she hears as, "I'm not proud of you for finishing your goal. I am only relieved that you're no longer going to be losing sleep... and your mind... in your obsessive pursuit of it."
"Y-yeah... sorry about that. Gotta remember Lusamine." Reyna pulls herself onto her bed and slips under the covers. Save it for later, Reyna... When light dawns, that's when we can finish this at last.
Lake Basel, Oblivia, The Next Day
Trainer Reyna is standing out in front of the lake. She sends out Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem. "Alright, guys. Fingers crossed, let's hope this works."
The Tao Trio collectively nod and stand side-by-side with Kyurem in the middle, bracing themselves. Kyurem makes a low throaty sound, almost like a whisper-growl.
Reyna equips the DNA Splicers, which now look almost like a gauntlet over her hand with three drill-like tips. The tips shoot out and pierce each dragon Pokémon, converting them into black, white, and gray orbs. The tips of the DNA Splicers retract inward, pulling the orbs together. It takes a considerable amount of force, but Reyna successfully combines the orbs into one, which immediately explodes with power as it changes shape, becoming... the true form of the Tao Dragon, Complete Kyurem.◊
Elsewhere in Oblivia
Wilder and Shaymin are heading for Primordia (presumably alongside the others) when they feel a sudden weight in their chests, like Primal Fear. The other Pokémon should also feel this weight.
The Shaymin gets a visible Sweat Drop. Ummmm...
... What is this... unnatural fear? Wilder looks down at his trembling webbed hands. It takes him a minute, but he composes himself. Have courage, everyone. We will move on the source of this feeling. Follow me. With that, he starts running in the direction of Lake Basel.
Edited by KiriK on Sep 14th 2018 at 10:26:32 AM
The others either fall down or look around in alert, at least all of them bar Harenzo, who's glowing mark seems to shield him from the fear. He attempts to help them up.
"Why would we go there, you dingus ? We have to-"
"Go there and earn a lot of experience." says Mory, cutting him off. "Let's follow him !"
"If you bitch out, I'll drag your weak ass there."
"H-ho, I"m eager to... shrekt... some fools, yo." says Wendy. "Did I say it right ?"
"... Yeah !" replies Tokza, as the group set off.
Kyurem stares down at Reyna.
"Whoa... I could've never predicted this. You're... you look awesome, Kyurem! I can't believe you..."
The Tao Dragon snarls at her.
With thoughtspeech, it says, My power, though it created a conflict inside me, has been restored. I am grateful to you for giving me what I had lost, but now you are little more than an obstacle standing in my way.
There will be no more words. Farewell. The Tao Dragon's eyes flash, and the Master Ball that had been used to contain Kyurem... explodes. Reyna falls with a startled yelp.
Then it unleashes an ungodly roar as its Overdrive mode activates, indicating it is ready for battle.
Complete Kyurem emerges!
Kyurem is exerting an unbreakable aura!
The Pokémon pals arrive on the scene immediately after this has occurred.
... What is this thing, Reyna?
"IT'S KYUREM!" Reyna cries out, burying her face in her hands. "I MADE A MISTAKE! I CAN'T CONTROL IT AT ITS FULL POWER!"
The Cube◊ starts to make furiously mechanical noises as it glows, seemingly sensing something.
"What's going on with that thing!?" , Dark Meta Knight◊ asks when he notices.
"Is it gonna blow!?" , Mr. L◊ says, panicked.
"Take it outside until it calms down, just in case. I don't want to lose another base. But make sure we don't lose it.", Cyber◊ says.
About 20 seconds later, Hub◊ is standing outside with the still-glowing cube in his hands, disgruntled.
"Of course they want me to guard the thing 'cause I'm not in 'danger' of the explosion if it were to happen. ... It'd still hurt, y'know!"

"Ho wow, so this all happened because you're a fucking moron." says Zeke. "I should feed yo-"
"JUST START CHARGING SOMETHING ZEKE !"
"Okay ! Okay ! Grmblb..." he says. Wendy powers up with Quiver Dance, Harenzo start charging something while Tokza uses Bulk Up and Zeke begins to glow pink. Mory remains unmoving, glaring.
"Shit do you have something that could be like super effective ?"
"Fairy attacks ?" says Harenzo. "I have a few."
I'd say 'You Fool!', but at this point we have other things to worry about.
Complete Kyurem stomps toward its foes and exhales a Dragon Breath at Shaymin.
Shaymin reels back, wincing and making tiny little coughs.
Odin nods at the trio and departs without a word, while Thor laughs.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA ! FORGET HIM FOR LEAVING SO SOON, HE HAS GODLY STUFF TO DO ! CONGRATULATIONS FOR DEFEATING LOKI ! LET US ENJOY HIS DEATH BY DRINKING MEAD !"
"That'll be without me."
"WHY SO ?! HOO Ooo yes."
Baldr leap away.
Odin teleports behind Tesekh's throne and promptly hand him over a decomposed arm, limping in the grasp of the enormous hand of the Allfather. Tesekh turns back, take the arm and rip off his own arm. Once thrown into the light, it is revealed that the arm seems to be entirely golden and machine-like, with complex wires jutting out of it. He then re-attach the arm and looks on in satisfaction as evil spreads through the limb.
Quickly, it becomes healthy and then gets muscular, being almost bigger than his other golden arm. Tesekh gets up and walk into the light, revealing that his entire body seems to be akin to a golden cyborg... shockingly enough, it also reveals the reason behind his odd head.
It's an animal, though one that is unnamed and unknown to the modern world. One so unknown, it could only be named one thing.
The Set Animal.
How unusual for you to help me, Allfather. You know what's going to happen if I succeed.
"You did give me some... tools to bind Jormungandr, Hel and Surtur himself." says Odin. "Ragnarok will happen when I'll want it to, and your return won't change anything about it, especially since I could always notify you to the Egyptian pantheon".
But you won't, because the other realms are of no concern to you.
Odin grins, look down and vanish in a storm of black Seithr. Set admires his arm and let evil run through it and through his body, illuminating the cave to reveal a giant, metallic pyramid, along with a large army made out of fantastic beasts and odd, purple humanoids !
The trickster is gone... but I am here. Chaos will reign, disorder will strike and in the end, Evil will triumph... no, I will triumph.
He lets out a deep cackle as he raises his arm and closes his fist around the sun, in a pretty metaphorical gesture.
"Shaymin, are you okay ?" says Wendy. She almost stops her dance but Zeke throws a berry at the plant pokemon and get Wendy to complete Quiver Dance. Harenzo keeps charging, and Tokza uses Bulk Up. Meanwhile, Mory begins to move around, attempting to get an occasion to strike.

That which the Cube senses is Complete Kyurem's power, and despite the distance between it and the Assassin Base, Complete Kyurem's attack on its opponents sets the Cube off, which suddenly bursts into light, shocking Hub before his body gets vaporized by a beam of light that shoots up into the sky.
Some of the natural light in the Arena starts to fade, being absorbed into this beam, which, when it stops, has made room for a large, dark warphole, in which a large, imporing figure appears, nearing the Arena, drawn in by the light.
Ultra Necrozma appears, descending from the portal and sensing the greatest source of light in the immediate area.
That source is Complete Kyurem's aura.
Bracing itself, it unleashes its own aura, one bright orange like flames, and it lets its stats increase greatly. It unleashes a loud, mighty roar, declaring war on its fellow dragon.
The Cube starts to float around it, with Ultra Necrozma paying it no mind as it's stopped eminating light, though it does still seem to whirr as if it's active.
Complete Kyurem stops and sniffs the air. Rather than continuing to attack, it roars back at Ultra Necrozma, challenging it to come and fight.
Y-Yeah, I'm fine. I'll be fine.
Wordlessly, Wilder starts gathering water in his hands.
Reyna watches on, thinking, There has to be something I can do here... something that can help make things right.
Cauldros, Slavebird Isle
Thor flashes a grin at Myth!Thor.
"Aye, now that's a celebration I would be happy to partake in!"
"You two enjoy your revelry, then. I have other matters to attend to."
With that, Loki proceeds to take his leave.
"HO GOD ANOTHER ONE !"
"WHAT IS THIS ? I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THAT ONE !"
"WILDER ! WHAT IS THAT THING ?!"
Out of habit, they keep raising their stats but are unsure of what they can do to fight. Harenzo's mark glows though, which he starts to notice.
Garchomp is watching the fight, bug-eyed.
"Whoah." he says, shifting from his hiding spot. "They got themselves into troublesome stuff, imma get myself some popcorn."
He fly off.
