Ohhh, magic, heh?! That'd sure help. Crossbows are heavy and all.
She grab a fancy pink phone and nods.
"Perfect. A moment."
Terlette's eyes glow gray as she waves a hand over Marie's phone.
"Done. Should be downloading now, but it's a big book so expect it to take a couple minutes to finish."
Mary: "I'd like to have that..."
"Hmm... Sure." Terlette takes Mary's phone and does the same thing.
Thanks a whole bunch Terlette! says Marie.
That will, huh, widen my repertoire.
"Hey Raven, your food's here! Come and get it!"
Terlette sighs and just yanks a chicken strip basket across the room to herself with telekinesis.
"To a great achievement, and to keeping the people safe." Terlette holds out a chicken strip, like a toast.

Marie hold out her milkshake, since there's nothing much at hand.
To a great success!
A Glorious Showdown! (Battle! Battle Tower - Pokémon Sword and Shield Music)
Shadow Gundam is fighting a much smaller mech resembling a kiwi bird atop an elevated platform suspended over the abyssal whirlpool. There are walls of energy, like a wrestling ring, to ensure they don't accidentally fall out and inflict horrible crushing/drowning death upon their respective pilots.
The Gundam yeets an exploding shuriken at Kiwibot, which simply dives out of the way. This guy's used to fighting opponents his size, thinks the pilot of Kiwibot. This should be easy.
The kiwi-shaped bot fires its beak off of its face, attached by a cord, at Shadow Gundam... which easily catches the projectile.
"You assume you know all there is to know about Gundam combat, do you not? You are wrong!" Shadow Gundam yanks Kiwibot over to it and drives an elbow into the side of the bird-mech, knocking it against the walls.
"You have much, much more to learn."
~Sentient_Slime_Blob, Shadow Gundam's pilot is the guy Domon asked Rake to keep an eye out for. Not that Rake would know until the pilot gets out of the mech, though. He might also get him closer to finding Fu.
Open War ~Again~
A man with one black eye◊ descends from the sky, lightning sparking around him.
Following him is a rather sizable tank with a skull for a... head?
???: "Thunder Wind Impact! CHESTO!"
Crackling gray-on-purple lightning roars and surrounds the man's fist, him coming down for a heavy punch to Shadow Gundam's cockpit.
The tank lands next to Kiwibot and... nods at it?
Tank: [TANK NOISES]
Kiwibot wobbles to its feet. It strafes around the battlefield.
Shadow Gundam staggers back.
"Hey, stay out of this!"
It flips around one of its weird arm blade thingies and attempts a plunging stab on Kiwibot, but the strike is deflected by a volley of missile-like projectiles.
Instead of big explosions, however, the missiles burst into gas clouds that induce drowsiness and near-instant sleep on anyone who breathes them in. Unfortunately, Shadow Gundam is too tall and too well-built for the gas to reach its pilot, Kyoji Kasshu, but it poses another problem in the density of the clouds being great enough to obscure his vision.
Unfortunately, Kyoji's Gundam is built to be like some sort of mecha-ninja, so he just stabs again at where he 'senses' Kiwibot to be.
Kiwibot then goes springing out of the clouds, landing feet-first on the arm, and CRUNCH - rips the limb off with its bulk.
Cue Synchronization. "GYAAA-AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"
"Hah! How do you like that, dummkopf?!"
Both are ways to call someone stupid, first in German and second in Japanese.
As the clouds clear, Shadow Gundam punts Kiwibot like a football, sending it back against the wall. It then unleashes a barrage of shuriken projectiles, which stick into the bird-mech's hull.
Kiwibot's pilot hammers the eject button.
As if trying not to make Akatsuki and Blitztank feel left out, Shadow Gundam throws a volley of shuriken at them as well.
Edited by KiriK on Dec 8th 2019 at 3:25:14 AM
Akatsuki stumbles back and feels a little drowsy, but is able to make it on to Blitztank's back before knocking out.
Blitztank opens it's mouth, a beam of energy flying out of it, blowing the shuriken to the side and gunning for Shadow Gundam's chest area.
The vibration of the energy cannon wakes Akatsuki up, and he clings to the back of Blitztank's "neck".
The shurikens explode, engulfing their victims in fire and shrapnel.
A smallish figure is jettisoned out of Kiwibot, making a Three-Point Landing in front of its remains.
Dear god, she looks like a teenager trying to dress up as a superhero.◊ Although, to be fair... She is a teenage superhero.
"Stand down. I win."
"You kidding? It's not over until I say it's over. And I've got friends, too."
Kyoji sighs and punches at Blitz with Shadow Gundam's remaining arm.
"Whup!" She narrowly manages to grab onto the back of the Gundam's hand, reducing the impact. She starts climbing up to its shoulder. The Gundam swings around and nearly sends her flying off, but she manages to dig in... her legs... and stay put.
Before long, Blitz is on Shadow Gundam's shoulder.
"I see your game." The Gundam reaches up and plucks Blitz with two fingers like a bug, dangling her by her cape.
She just folds her arms and makes a pouty face before Blitztank blasts open the Gundam's chest, revealing Kyoji standing inside of it in the Mobile Trace Suit as he yelps in pain, dropping her. OOPS, THE COCKPIT WAS IN THE CHEST
She gets back up on the Gundam's shoulder and starts kicking at its neck repeatedly. "Go! Down! Already! You! Dumb! Ninja! Arschloch!"
Shadow Gundam suddenly gains a golden sheen as Kyoji enters a state of tranquility, activating its Hyper Mode.
Blitz pauses mid-kick. "Ummm..."
"Now you can all come at me at once." Shadow Gundam raises its intact arm and stump up before striking a cool battle pose as wires and metallic plating come shooting out of the destroyed parts, reattaching its arm and repairing it (and the cockpit) Metal Cooler-style.
Kousaku Suru Kitai
Akatsuki hops on top of Blitztank's head, pointing at Shadow Gundam, specifically the cockpit.
Akatsuki: "Don't underestimate my power! All shadows are burned by light! Blitztank, target the weakpoint!"
An orange circle with some odd markings begins to hover around Shadow Gundam's chest.
Akatsuki: "New reticle?"
???: "Not exactly."
In the distance stands two figures.
A Mad Dog and a Raging Butterfly.
Blitz goes tumbling off of Shadow Gundam.
"You know that that battle was for sport. If you insist on targeting my cockpit... I will have no choice but to respond with lethal force."
"Um, yeah, guys, maybe don't?"
Shadow Gundam slashes at Blitztank with its arm blades. According to research, they're called Spiegel Blades, but since that's in the version where the Gundam's name is Gundam Spiegel, I would presume they would be called Shadow Blades here (in accordance with the dub naming conventions).
"Mad Dog" gets punched in the arm by his companion, promptly removing his Remote Weakpoint.
"Sorry about that!"
Akatsuki shrugs before jumping off of Blitztank as it's attacked. The tank itself rolls back before attempting to slam itself into a part of the arm that won't cut him.
The other two rush in.

Shadow Gundam's wrist is dented while its arm is lowered. In a swift motion, it tries to grab Blitztank from the underside and flip it, end-over-end, away.
Blitz runs over to Akatsuki. She pauses to just stare at the 'God of Thunder' in amazement. "So cool..."
Akatsuki just looks over to Blitz and nods.
Blitztank gets flipped away before being fucking caught by Azrael, as he puts the tank down and keeps going.
Yang is going much faster, propelling herself with her gauntlets, and goes for a mighty punch to the head; If landed, she shoots a shotgun blast from her gauntlets, blowing herself away while attacking.
"Wooooooaaaaaahhh...!" Blitz practically Squees at Azrael's display of strength.
Shadow Gundam stumbles back from Yang's strike. It hurls a flurry of throwing knives at her. Each is normal-sized, but obviously there's a shitload of them.
It turns to face Azrael and shoots an electrified iron net at him from a wrist-launcher, trying to pin him down. Note that this net is specifically designed to restrain other Gundams.
Akatsuki unleashes Lightning Shot ~Vier~, firing 4 quick bolts of purple lightning at Shadow Gundam's head.
Blitztank fires a ball of energy at Shadow Gundam's knives, knocking them away.
Yang fires bolts of pink energy from her gauntlets.
Azrael sets a Remote Weakpoint on Shadow Gundam's left shoulder, but gets hit by the net and restrained.
Azrael: "Can't hold me forever..."
He grumbles a but and struggles, but seems to start fighting it back, even if not necessarily winning...

"Sturm Und Drang!"
Shadow Gundam's body starts spinning, deflecting the projectiles before they can reach its head, as it becomes a tornado of blades. It advances, bearing down upon Akatsuki and Blitztank!
Blitz wisely dives for cover.
Akatsuki hops back, opting to shoot a large Lightning Shot for Shadow Gundam's big dumb head.
Bitztank simply treads back before idling, catching a falling Yang on it's back.
Azrael is starting to beat the net back...
Blitz runs up to the net and stomps it with her left leg. "Ach-tch!" She leaves a small but notable dent on the outside - a weak point Azrael might use to tear his way free. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to her, the wreckage of Kiwibot has begun to "rewind" towards an intact state.
Shadow Gundam is unable to defend further attacks that can reach its head while spinning, and the blast knocks it out of its Sturm Und Drang.
Azrael manages to find the hole and break through it.
Azrael: "Thanks, kid. Now, if you excuse me..."
He whistles over to Blitztank, and Yang hops up on it's head, being catapulted by the tank.
Azrael jumps towards Shadow Gundam's head.
Akatsuki gets into a grounded position and shoots a freakin' bolt of lightning at the cockpit.
Yang and Azrael are now on either side of the bolt, Azrael moving the Remote Weakpoint to the head before the two of them prepare and go for a duo of mighty punches.
Akatsuki: "Justice shall strike you down!"
Yang: "Let's crush this poser!"
Azrael: "A fine meal, but now we take the last bite!"
Blitztank: [HYPED TANK NOISES]
Blitztank comes up behind Akatsuki and fires a cannon of it's own, traveling the same path as the bolt.

"Huff... huff... Not so fast! Grasp of Shadows!"
Waga Kokoro Meikyou Shisui - Saredo Kono Tenohira wa Rekka no Gotoku
Shadow Gundam's hand begins to emit purple light and reaches out, before the entire Gundam suddenly vanishes completely. Since the attacks that were sent its way pass through where it had just been standing, it would seem that it took evasive maneuvers...
The hand becomes visible again right as it's about to seize Blitztank in a crushing deathgrip!
Blitz's attention is drawn that way, and out of the corner of her eye she notices Kiwibot.
Edited by KiriK on Dec 9th 2019 at 8:24:06 AM
Blitztank gets promptly grabbed, beginning to be crushed.
Akatsuki looks on in horror, relatively close to the events, only to muster up enough courage to summon the lightning back to him, hopefully striking Shadow Gundam, who was in-between the soldier and his lightning bolt.
Yang and Azrael stumble in the air and fall to the ground.
Blitz runs back to her mecha and vaults in. "Hang in there, big guy... I'm coming!"
As Shadow Gundam increases pressure, Kiwibot rises back up on its feet and fires two nets at it from back-mounted cannons! The nets are made of rope, but weighed down with iron balls. The initial shots land, startling Kyoji, and then Kiwibot keeps firing nets to pin his hand further and further down so he can't just rip free instantly.
Now that Shadow Gundam is immobilized, its entire body becomes visible again, and its Grasp of Shadows powers down, along with its Hyper Mode. "Grrraaaaaaaagh!" Kyoji yells as he gets zapped.
"Now! Go for the head!" Blitz slams her hand on a big button, and Kiwibot fires its beak at Shadow Gundam's face!
Edited by KiriK on Dec 9th 2019 at 9:07:17 AM
The lightning bolt zips around and around, before eventually aiming right for Shadow Gundam's head once more.
Yang and Azrael recuperate, Yang activating Rage and Azrael taking off one layer of his power limiters.
The duo once again rush for Shadow Gundam's head, this time with a duo of Remote Weakpoints aimed for the back, and both attempting to practically slam into it with all of their might.
Blitztank, choosing to not further escape from the clutches of Shadow Gundam, begins to fire a beam cannon from it's mouth, but then opens a large cavity in it's front area, between it's treads; within lies a massive laser cannon, which is charged and fired right at Shadow Gundam's head.
