Nicole lands on the ground next to Anna, Jake and Clarisse, then shifts her gaze to Travant.
"Like I just told your daughter, it like whoever the hell your so-called 'allies' were tried to manipulate you into doing their dirty work for some twisted reason or another. And judging by how Altena reacted when I guessed that y'all were a bunch of bloodthirsty barbarians, I take it you never would've accepted this job if you knew what your 'allies' really wanted?"

Wyvern Fight: Arrival Of The Legendary Warriors
"Ho-ho-holy shit. If it inn't the Captain!"
Defense, Anderson, and Amy fell into the fray from an above rooftop, Amy trying to whack a wyvern on the way down.
"Hey, it's those guys Sonic hangs out with sometimes!"
"Quite the opposite. You're giving me a headache."
"Come now, Doctor, are you really that bothered?"
"Whatever." In a flash of energy, Gero transforms into... Well, it's literally just Perfect Cell.◊ I mean, he's not called Perfect Cell in this case, but in every way except name, mind, and power level, he is the "proper" Dragon Ball timeline's Perfect Cell.
He turns to Cyber Cooler and says, "I swear, it feels like you wanted to see this more than the other Cooler."
"Alright. I suppose I should get to investigating... See you around, other me." DF!Jotaro turns and starts walking away.
Def, you really picked a bad time to enter the wyvern fight. Like, the end of the fight.

"If you behave like you always do, I don't think it'll be difficult.", she says, giggling a bit.
"So, is there anything else you want to talk about until the others come back? ... Or maybe you want to play a game? I have a pack of playing cards from one of the worlds I've visited."
Despite the fact that they've stopped attacking, Anna and Jake remain wary for some reason.
"Under normal circumstances, no. We were indeed tricked. However..."
He suddenly raises the Gungnir.
"Thracia faces difficult times. It needs the reward we were promised, and the lives of my people are more important to me than yours. Sorry, but we will continue our attack. Arion, Altena, strike!"
"Father!?", Altena asks, shocked.
"We must! For Thracia!"
He swings the Gungnir at Anna, who dodges backwards, but lands wrongly, hurting her ankle in the process. When Travant attacks again, Jake moves in the way, letting his Ballista take the hit.
It gets turned into scraps on impact, Jake falling on the ground next to Anna, badly wounded.
Clarisse is about to shoot an arrow at Travant, but the three surviving Dragon Knights suddenly go for her, forcing her to remain occupied with them. One of them gets knocked down by Amy though.
Arion turns to look at Lucina and Laurent.
"It's quite a shame, but my father's will is my command."
Flying up a bit higher for a moment, he glows as he swoops down to strike. It's a critical hit!
Altena, meanwhile, despite her father and brother fighting, doesn't attack, torn between her loyalty to her country and her principles of not harming innocent people.
King of Thracia
Roy sighs and draws his sword.
Marth lets go of Captain Falcon. He glances at Lucina. "This man, though he seems completely insane, is the very one who defeated your and Chrom's counterparts singlehanded."
Falcon does an aerial Raptor Boost at one of the Dragon Knights attacking Clarisse, trying to sledgehammer-slam them out of the air.

Meta-Cooler would let out a sigh if he physically could.
"For someone not fully human, you act almost exactly like one. You were denied attention, so you decide to huff and puff to try and blow down a house."
He turns and walks away as well.
"Good grief. As if Kira wasn't trouble enough, now I have to worry about robots mistaking me for another me." He says to himself as he leaves.
Not right now ! she answers the smashers, raising her sword to defend herself. It isn't enough though, and she get blown away by the critical hit, being sent sprawling to the ground. Laurent somehow manages to look utterly enraged while staying composed-looking and raises an unusual-looking yellow tone.
El Thor ! he says, using a particularly powerful Thoron to try to attack his foe, with his voice just barely betraying his rage.
Cards are fine... I could probably play some with Samsara or Miriel later... thank you !

Wyvern Fight: Strike, With Great Force!
Before Travant can try to swing again, Amy attempts to force the Piko Piko Hammer into his side, attempting to knock him away.
"Any friend of my Sonic is a friend of mine! And you don't hurt my friends!"
At the same time, scripture appears behind Arion, Before Anderson appears in the scattered pages.
"Aye, she's a pain, but she's got a point. These people are under our protection, lad!"
He tosses a few bayonets at the boy.
Defense stayed put, looking back at Altena.
"Hey, kid. Follow your own path. That's all I'm going to say."
He hopped up to a Dragon Knight (a different one than C. Falcon) and manifested a hammer out of hardlight, attempting to slam it down on the wyvern's neck.

"Oh, you selfish old bastard!"
Transforming right back into her Draconic form, a now-enraged Nicole lets out a piercing roar that would likely make even a T-Rex jump in surprise, then swiftly attempts to grab Travant by the face and slam him against the ground as hard as she possibly can.
"You could've just ended this goddamn fight peacefully and maybe we could've helped your precious Thracia! But I guess throwing away your whole 'never harm innocents' code and trying to murder them in cold blood instead, my friends included, to earn the favor of deceptive scumbags just seemed easier, huh?!"
If her prievous attack succeeded, she'll then follow up by lifting him into the air by his head ala Toppo vs Frieza, fixing him with a withering Death Glare complete with bared teeth, and finally tossing him aside like a ragdoll.
"Way to set such a perfect example for your daughter, by the way. After all, doesn't every great monarch prefer to spill innocent blood even though there are easier, less heinous ways to save their kingdom?"

Captain Falcon's attack succeeds, and he sends one flying, while Defense sends the other one crashing into the ground, allowing Clarisse to check up on Anna and Jake.
There's no other random Dragon Knights left to attack though. It's only the three royals left now.
Arion does seem to recognize a Thoron tome, and tries to dodge, but with the bayonets about to skewer him, he has no choice but to dodge those instead. As such, Thoron strikes him with a critical hit, making his wyvern crash into the alleyway from just before.
Altena, seeing it happen, abandons her enemies and hurries over to her brother's side, blocking the path between Arion and everyone else. Since she doesn't attack though, this does mean that Laurent can safely check up on Lucina, and Anderson will be able to see that she isn't hostile.
Travant, meanwhile, glares at Nicole as he outright blocks Nicole's claws with Gungnir, the holy weapon powerful enough to stop even a dragon.
"What could you possible do to help an entire country, girl!? This isn't about appearances or examples. This is about my people's survival. They promised us food, water, advantages and protection. That's more than a group of warriors could ever hope to offer!"
Despite him blocking the attack, he does get swung to the side when Amy bashes at him with her hammer, falling off of his wyvern, which quickly gets back up and protectively stands in front of Travant, hissing at Nicole and Amy as Travant gets up.
"You're still young, dragon girl. You have no idea how it is to experience the harshness of ruling a country that's difficult to inhabit. For my people's sake, I must do whatever it takes. I've done it before, and I'll do it for as long as I live."

"You could seek aid from foreign nations."
"You could hold competitions and make profit off an entry fee."
Android 20 sighs again.
"It's because these bodies are disposable," Cooler says aside.
This is between me and Psyco to establish something that'll happen in the near future between me and Arachnos.
Dr. Eggman holds the Phantom Ruby over his head. "Work your magic!"
A tear in the dimensional fabric opens up. Eggman's pod floats inside.
The landscape is a wicked mishmash of Wily-occupied areas and what Eggman did to the Little Planet.
"Ohohohoho! The Phantom Ruby remade with my will alone what Albert and I needed several Chaos Emeralds to make the first time!"
"Very impressive, Sire."
"I know it's impressive. And, speaking of Albert..." Eggman presses the microphone button on his pod's console.
"Paging Dr. Wily. Paging Dr. Wily. This is Ivo. I've remade the Skull Egg Zone. Come find the portal hanging over the southernmost island on the map of this world."

Meta-Cooler seems slightly disappointed at Gero's response.
"What? No threat? Not even a bit of name calling? You may not mean it, but you insult me, android."
Laurent glares but turn around and pick up Lucina, she isn't dead but still badly weakened. Since the fighters are taken care off or on their last legs, he decide to depart, quickly making his way across the street.
Laurent ? What's happening over there ? asks Morgan, her smiles quickly fading as she spots Lucina.
Morgan. I require a staff. he says, his voice cracking slightly. Morgan quickly uses one to heal the princess, though she appears to be still pretty out of it. At the very least, she can get on her feet.
W-what happened ?
The fiend nearly struck you dead but I managed to fend him off. Should we go to check up the situation ?
No, I'd be useless in this state... just go in there alone...
I am not leaving my wife while she needs me. Morgan, can you help me ?
Right ! Mom should have more stuff to help her !
Morgan attempts to help, though an awkward size difference means that she just grab on to Lucina's arm and drag her towards the building. Samsara doesn't hear it, being still asleep. They ascend the stairs, enter a room and close the door, as Miriel greet them.
Gangrel is standing atop the tallest tower of NLA.
Gangrel has a crippling fear of height.
I have made a mistake.
NLA: Cows Outgunned
Defense lands, and notices Anderson looking back at Altena and her brother.
"They don't seem to be hostile. At least, not willingly."
"I guess it's just their father going a bit over the edge."
"Should we put him down?"
"Not if we don't have to."
Defense dematerialized his hammer as Anderson pulled out a bayonet just in case.
The two stayed back.
However, Amy was just a little bit incensed, and tried to jump up and plant one side of her hammer into the jaw of Travant's dragon. If landed, the strike would be enough to flip the dragon on it's back.
"Whatever it takes, huh? Well what about the rest of us-"
"Lass, now is not the time. Let them talk."
Amy grumbled and backpedaled in the direction of Defense and Anderson.
"Oh, I don't know, maybe forge alliances with nations who're actually trustworthy and won't demand that you butcher innocents?" Nicole fires back at Travant, reverting back to normal once more as she calms down, though her glare is no less icy as one hand grasps her dagger's hilt. "Really, there's a whole crapload of ways you could've gotten aid for Thracia without needing to sacrifice innocent lives! Hell, can you really trust these assholes to hold up their end of the bargain? For all you know, once they've gotten everything they want, you and your people are gonna be tossed aside like garbage and left to rot."
Oca actually pops open a combat capsule for the first time in probably a while. He summons a one-use Satellite Laser over Ninetails and fires it. Not an actual anything; he just summons a laser into existence.
In other news, he fires a quick Thunder Beam with his left hand before jumping over one of the sword arcs.
Travant's dragon gets smacked by Amy, looking somewhat hilariously shocked as it lands behind Travant himself.
"When all nations are at war, who would I be able to turn to, boy?" , Travant asks Roy and Nicole in response. "There's nobody else we can turn to."
"Now, now. I think you've made your point clear, king Travant." , a voice says, causing Travant to pause and look around.
Then, a hooded man◊ warps in next to Travant. Anna and Jake seem to turn pale the moment they see him.
A growing evil.
"You!? I... We haven't lost yet. We will-"
"There is no more need to continue fighting. You've done well, so you may return immediately."
"Those are the prince's direct orders."
Travant immediately stops talking. Nodding once, he helps his dragon up, not even looking at anyone anymore. Altena and Arion, who'd just gotten up, look at the hooded man, and how their normally proud and stubborn father answers to him.
"That man is our benefactor?", Altena asks.
"It sounds to me like he's working for our benefactor."
"Children of Travant." , the man suddenly speaks up to the two of them. "You two may return as well."
Before they can even say anything, the man turns to everyone else.
"My humblest apologies for the trouble. Are any of you hurt? Shall I heal you with my staff?"
This time, Dr Wily appears immediately, smirking.
"Ah, I'd been wondering when I'd hear from you again, Ivo."
He looks the zone over, impressed.
"It looks incredible! The Chaos Emeralds truly are powerful."
He then notices the Phantom Ruby.
"Wait, that's that ruby you told me about. Don't tell me you used only that to make all this!"
"Cooler, you're certain they're expendable?"
Cooler groans and facepalms, knowing what will come next. "Don't take this personally, other me..."
21 transforms into her "Majin" form and blasts a ray of crackling pink energy at the Meta-Cooler, which will turn him into a gingerbread cookie decorated with frosting and gumdrops if it hits him.
"... What is this about now?" Marth asks.
Falcon takes his fighting pose.
"I told you, what's a pinch for the Chaos Emeralds is a cinch for the Phantom Ruby. I even tried to replicate it once, but the results were based on illusions instead of actually warping reality. Still, the Phantom Ruby seems to be a bit fragile compared to the -"
Something beeps inside Eggman's pod.
"Huh? Oh! Speaking of the Emeralds, I'm detecting a signal from one of them in the Arena! Metal Sonic!"
Metal Sonic zooms onto the scene.
Eggman shows it the location of the Chaos Emerald.
"Directives recognized. Initiating Emerald Hunt." Metal Sonic activates its Speed Gear and completely vanishes.
"Now then, Albert, would you like to do the honors of restoring the Wily Egg?" Eggman holds the Phantom Ruby out to Wily. He's keeping a firm grip in case Wily tries to steal it from him, but if Wily places his hand on the Ruby and remembers the Wily Egg, it will materialize in the sky of the Skull Egg Zone.
"Huh. Can I get a name to the face I see before me, or is that too much to ask?"
Defense gave the man a steely, yet oddly diplomatic glare.
"Now that's more like it."
Cue the robotic Cooler being transformed into a delicious cookie.
"Ooh, not quite the effect I was expecting."
Another Meta-Cooler, having Instant Transmissioned behind Cyber Cooler and the Androids, speaks up.
"Very impressive. I'll be sure to jot that down and improve the newest versions of me to try and stop that from happening."
Before Nicole can fire back that she actually knows a certain Grand General who'd likely be willing to forge an alliance between Thracia and his own nation of Noxus, the hooded newcomer happens, much to her surprise. After a moment, she answers his question with a shake of the head.
"Whoever the hell this creep is, he might as well be wearing an 'I'm A Voldemort/Jafar-Level Dark Wizard' t-shirt under his cloak..."
She then crouches next to Anna and Jake, whispering to them both.
"First, are you two okay? Second, where's Clarisse and how's she holding up? Third, who's the creepy-looking hooded dude?"
Edited by IchigoMontoya on Nov 8th 2018 at 5:13:12 AM
"Me? I'm just a humble servant of his majesty. My name isn't important, no." , he says, his eyes hidden by his hood, but his mouth showing a crooked smile.
"Well, if nobody requires healing, then we shall be off. His majesty awaits us."
He brings a staff out from under his cloak, the top of it glowing, and suddenly, Travant, Arion and Altena have been warped away. He then grabs another staff.
He then warps himself away as well.
Anna and Jake, who're being helped up by Clarisse, look at Nicole.
"I'm right here.", Clarisse says to Nicole before they can speak up.
"... Um... well...", Anna says, strangely nervous to answer. "That was... just a dark mage, nobody really special. I don't think he'll cause us much trouble."
"Collecting the Chaos Emeralds anyway? Hm... well, it's for the better if those blue nuisances don't have access to them." , Dr Wily says. He then looks at the Phantom Ruby, slightly hesitant for a moment, but then grinning.
"It'd be my pleasure, Ivo."
He slowly moves to place his hand onto the Phantom Ruby, clearly a bit wary due to not being familiar with its power. Yet his scientific mind wouldn't allow him not to try it out.
He thinks of the Wily Egg, of every single detail of the in-and outside. How could he ever forget his and Eggman's masterpiece after all?
Captain Falcon turns to the others. "We should've attacked him, shouldn't we have?"
It manifests above their heads, as marvelous and pristine as it ever was.
Eggman cackles. "Excellent! I'll get started making blueprints for our potential last-defense machines. You just sit back and enjoy yourself!" He uses the Phantom Ruby for the trivial purpose of conjuring up a Metall with a rice cooker and spoon under its helmet.
He thinks to himself, Hope you won't be bothered by a child putting herself in the line of fire, Al, but I might have to enlist Omelette's help if we really want to win this time.
Android 21 ignores the second Meta-Cooler, just eating the cookie that the first one was turned into.
Cyber Cooler chuckles. "Her own clones are susceptible to that, and they're products of my Big Gete Star. I don't know if you'll be able to do it. I won't stop you from trying, though."
Edited by KiriK on Nov 8th 2018 at 7:19:26 AM
Nicole narrows her eyes at Anna, somewhat confused by her reluctance to speak about the hooded mage.
"Okay, there's clearly something you're not telling me here, Anna. Now, let's try again: who the hell was that dark mage, why don't you wanna talk about him, and why were you and Jake so freaked out when he appeared? Please, just be honest with me."
Edited by IchigoMontoya on Nov 8th 2018 at 5:26:41 AM
"Well no one ever got anywhere without trying."
Meta-Cooler pauses for a moment before continuing.
"Anyways, is your bug man done pouting yet or should I just go?"
