"NO. YOU MAY EAT A CANDY BEFORE LEAVING FOR YOUR GOOD WORK."
"Thanks... I guess."
Pietro holds his hand out.
The Devourer just looked at her for a solid second, before creating a portal beside her - leading not to her pocket dimension, but to... Well, wherever the hell Draedon was at that moment, seemingly somewhere in Onyxis. He didn't even bother to look up at what was going on.
"I do not answer to you, worm. You answer to me."
"Kill her right now, or I'll come over there and demolish your shiny new outpost."
"You will not."
"Whoever is there, go ahead and teach the worm some manners. Her master will not mind."
Platinum give him a candy. It tastes hecking fucking good.
"THERE ARE MORE FOR YOU TO PICK WHILE LEAVING."
Pietro pops the candy into his mouth.
"Mmm... thanks, man! Good luck with your new guest!"
With that, he proceeds to exit Platinum's lab, grabbing some more candy on his way out.
Rhea just kinda... stares.
She quickly gets over it, though, and begins to gather energy in her hands.
"Consider this a demonstration, bot-boy, because everyone who could ever consider her an ally is my enemy, effective immediately."
In a move eerily reminiscent of a Final Smash, she punches a hole in reality, and every important character from the entire Dragon Ball multiverse comes flying out to deliver a single signature attack on the Devourer!

By the time the attack is over, the Devourer of Gods was gone. Not a corpse, or a pulp falling to the ground - no, she was just straight up vaporized. And from the smell of ozone and burnt flesh, it was abundantly clear that she hadn't just teleported out, either. 'Bot-boy' had raised his head from his work at that point, giving a standing, metallic ovation to the performance.
"I would hardly call her an 'ally,' honestly. A tool, at best. And, in times such as this, a source of amusement. In any case, whether you will accept it or not, consider my respect earned."
"Hmph." Rhea folds her arms and sticks her tongue out.
She then says "Kai Kai" and warps outta there.
It takes a second more, but Enforcer is easily able to pulverize the rock separating him and Dylan. I am afraid that Dylan is now learning how to fly the hard way, right at Omega.
Rbade and Ami's shots bounce off Enforcer's scales before this yeeting, and stop right after. They run to opposite flanks to try to avoid, er, hitting Dylan the next time they fire.
Enforcer follows up Dylan's flight with him slamming the ground with his fists, making a smol crater in the floor, but mostly just making the damn stage shake like it's San Francisco in 1906.
Rho nodded and was quite intrigued by the different sorts of powers that the others commanded. So many new worlds to learn about!
"Oh, curious indeed! I... um... I actually might have gone a bit too far last time I brought forth some of my summons — hence the bandages," he said, taking a sip and holding up his right arm to indicate the bandages and warding and all that not-so-fun stuff. He then shook his head briefly and rapidly at the mention of the words 'demon god'. "I... am going to have to assume that the demons of which you speak are a different sort entirely from those of my realm. I've had a lot of bad run-ins with them from botched summoning rites. Very quick, if exceedingly dangerous, way to learn the risks of a botched summoning, right there. I must say though, your powers do sound quite fascinating Miles, though I do confess that they sound somewhat confusing to talk about — when I'm healed up and somewhere a bit warmer, perhaps you'd like to give me a demonstration?"
He took a deep sip, savoring the warmth of the hot chocolate, before he continued.
"Actually, I wouldn't mind getting to know all of your powers, and just generally getting to know you guys better. You all seem pretty cool," gesturing in such a way that included Zero as well.
"SHIT FUCK SHIT FUCK—"
Omega dropped his axe and attempted to catch Dylan, before diving off to the side (hopefully with Dylan) and then attempting to avoid the Clobbering™. If he could not dodge, then he would at least be activating the spirit of Arch-Tempered Kulve Taroth to access Golden Form and tank some of the damage.
Failing both of those, he was going to go flying like a skeletal bowling pin.

Cyan flash-stepped over to Miles, placing a hand on his shoulder. "Hey, there's no need to get upset. Your, uh, metallic friend... I think I've got a read on him, and, well, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy to just go around giving anyone that kinda praise without a good reason. You know, actually, I think I'm with Rho on this one - I'd love to see you all in action at some point."
Miles listened quietly to what Rho and Cyan were saying, before taking a deep breath and composing himself again,"Thank you both for your kind words. I guess I'm just feeling a tad paranoid cause I've met so many folks who were convinced that wielding power meant they could rule over everyone else and I don't want to go down that route..."
He shook his head,"And then there's the fact I'm pretty sure if the factions in this world knew what I was really capable of, they'd try to sweet talk me or bully me into joining them."
"As much I hate to admit it, Miles does have a point," Nebula sighed as she sipped her drink,"Lately, it's been like more and more people have been taking notice of us, and while I'm sure some of them have our best interests at heart....others I'm not so convinced."
The "human" of the group only nodded before finally focusing on Rho's bandages,"You know, I appreciate your help so I'm gonna do you a solid. You don't have to wait for your wounds to heal. I could perhaps heal you right now if you wanted." Miles clapped his hands together as faint streams of Ki Energy and Void Energy began emanating from in between.
He then offered said hand, still covered in the two forms of energy, to Rho to shake.

The Lounge, Onyxis
The summoner nodded with understanding at Miles' plight.
"If there's one thing that being a summoner has taught me, it is this — many of the beings I summon are in much the same position as you. People seek them out because they are powerful, and, more often than not, force them into service. It's effective, no doubt, but... even it gets better results, I can't bring myself to do that. It disgusts me. You have my magic at your side, friend, if you should ever need it."
He then hesitated a moment, watching Miles' hand become charged with energies, and simply said, "Uh... do be careful, please. The summoner's burn under these things hurts like... a lot."
Then, he took Miles' hand, and waited... He wasn't sure what he was waiting for, honestly, but he waited all the same. Or at least he did until he felt a surge of... something. It wasn't exactly healing, but he could feel his arms begin healing at an appreciable pace. Neither was it like a rise in power, though he felt a little bit stronger after somehow...
It was... exceedingly strange. Like being submerged in a vast ocean and being thrown into the yearning abyss of the sky at the same time. His arms and shoulders briefly flared with the ephemeral, purple and blue, flamelike projections of magic that seemed to be unique to him, and his eyes went wide, before he slowly let go of Miles' hand.
"T... thank you...? I have no idea what in the Chains just happened, to be perfectly honest. That's... that's a new one."

Pilly◊ waves at Botar as she goes into town, the giant having dropped her off here, as she's going to get some groceries.
Botar then turns around, ready to leave again, and not noticing that Pilly stops near a building and peeks through the window, something having caught her interest.
On the rocky road near the cavern, Dark Samus◊ prowls around, seemingly looking for something, or someone, she has sensed nearby.
Edited by DevilPsyco on Aug 4th 2020 at 7:53:30 PM
When Botar turns around, he ought to come face-to-face with a shaken-looking 42.
"Botar... I have something... some things that need to be reported to Pseudo."
Thel 'Vadam sits in hiding behind a rock, Active Camouflage on, having seen Dark Samus coming from afar. He suspects that she is after him, due to a familiar sensation he feels as she draws near. A sensation reminding him of something he fought before.
I have fought with honor, endured the brand of Shame, dealt out vengeance... Even at the threshold of oblivion, I stood against false Truth, and the all-consuming Flood. But now, new foes have risen, and I have become their prey. Strange in appearance, these warriors hunt me. I see courage and conviction in their eyes, but also questions. The same questions I ask myself. 'In a lifetime of war, is this the end? My final battle? Will this hunter be the end of me?'
He steps out in front of Dark Samus as she comes close, his footprints visible to her though he himself is not.
Were it so easy.
He uncloaks, brandishing his Energy Sword, and rushes to make the first strike with a Flash Step stab!

"Woah... Neat." Blue and Cyan watched intently as Miles worked his magic on Rho, before Cyan rejoined his friend underneath the blanket with another flashstep. "If you can pull off something like that, I'd bet you could take on the world. I mean, I've saved our world once or twice, and all I can do is some fancy teleporting tricks - nothing like that."
Botar looks down at her and can clearly see something's wrong.
"42. Are you alright?"
"How urgent is it?"
While Thel 'Vadam is invisible, Dark Samus does sense something, and when she hears footsteps, she turns in his direction and charges up an attack with her arm cannon.
However, him suddenly uncloaking actually catches her off guard, and she tries to swiftly dodge, but ends up being struck along her thigh and stumbling to the side. In response, she quickly fires in Thel 'Vadam's direction, though since it's not perfectly aimed it shouldn't be that hard to dodge.
The Dark Hunter
Thor wanders near the building that Pilly was currently window-shopping at. Upon noticing the young Chimera, he approaches her and clears his throat to get her attention.
"Have you found another earring to add to your collection?"
At seeing how surprised Rho looked, Miles put up his hands,"Sorry about that. I'm still getting use to how these powers work. I thought if I mixed Ki with Chaos it would strengthen the potency of what I was trying to do."
Upon hearing Cyan, Nebula elbowed Miles in the arm,"Hey, maybe you should offer the others a power boost too? They could use it considering things around here aren't like their rhythm games."
"Only if that's what they want. Although I am curious what they'd be interested in." Miles remarked as he glanced at Cyan and Blue.
Shyna took a seat closer to Rho,"Umm...are you feeling ok, Mr Rho?"
42 resigns herself and explains. "I recently got an audience with the Cyber Angel Queen, and I wanted to report what happened, and what I learned. If that alone isn't urgent enough, then... you shouldn't bother."
Thel's footwork is not the best, and he gets hit, causing his energy shield to flash as it absorbs the blast. He hastily backs up, firing radioactive projectiles from his Type-51 Carbine which leave cool trails of green light. Pretty colors aside, they're almost as fast as bullets, so...

Pilly turns to him.
"Thor, hey!", she happily greets him.
"No, not really, but I have enough of those. I'm actually out to get some groceries, but then I heard someone singing and I couldn't help but look. You've gotta check this out!"
She points to the window, inviting him to look through it too, and if he does he'll be shown something he probably didn't expect.
It's Iris◊, singing karaoke on a stage and looking like she's having the time of her life. There's even people sitting in the room, cheering her on. There's a good bunch of them, though three◊ stand◊ out◊ a little.
Not because of their attire or looks, but because they seem to be cheering the loudest of them all.
Botar actually appears surprised for once and nods.
"I see. Let us go."
Then, before 42 can even blink, she'll find herself in the main monitor room, with Pseudo◊ closing a document on one of the computer screens, looking a bit... conflicted.
"Pseu-", Botar says, but then pauses when Pseudo is actually startled. Pseudo quickly turns around in his chair and immediately tries to look proper and stoic again, trying to save face.
"Botar, I didn't expect you to be back so so-oh, 42? What brings you here?", he asks upon seeing her.
Dark Samus, regaining her balance, starts to hover again and swiftly dodges between the projectiles. Impressive, considering their speed.
Letting out a low growl, Dark Samus then tries to ensnare Thel with a Grappling Beam, and if successful, will attempt to throw him into some rocks.
If Thel gets ensnared but has an extremely fast attack he can pull off though, he may be able to use it before Dark Samus has a chance to throw him. If that happens, he'll be freed and Dark Samus will be stunned for a moment.
Edited by DevilPsyco on Aug 4th 2020 at 8:27:53 PM
42 bows. "Hello, Pseudo. I have important news regarding the Cyber Angel Queen."
Thel is grappled, but he swings his Energy Sword and splits the Grapple Beam, then switches to a Needler (also known as the Type-56 Guided Munitions Launcher) and starts shooting glowing-pink needles at Dark Samus. While she is in his crosshairs, any needles shot will home in on her, and any needles that hit her will stick in and eventually shatter for a small amount of extra damage.
But, if most of the needles he shoots hit, they will all detonate at once in a powerful Supercombine Explosion!
Set is present within his throne room, casually observing both Troa and Katre, who appears to be placed under a Genjutsu since they're standing still and quite motionless. Eleven is standing in front of a few soldiers. Unlike the others, those soldiers have a solid form and appears to be made out of obsidian, on top of having a few Egyptian clothing or jewelry over them. They even have a tall, human-like humanoid form, and seems to be holding golden weaponry.
Eleven is holding up Troa's earring, grasping it as if it's existence is personally offensive to her.
That's how they tracked us. Troa had that on and it allowed her to send some signals back to their base. If they're lucky, they'll know where we are. She grimaces. Esidesi, who's standing in a corner, make the smuggest fucking grin and shrugs.
I'll destroy th-
Set get up and begins to walk down the small set of stairs, arriving in front of Eleven. Both she, Esidesi and the soldiers take a few steps backwards, as if intimidated. He pluck the tracker and hold it in the palm of his head. Then, he closes his fist, as if crushing it, and when he reopens his hand, there are two of them.
They still know...
You see fit to question my judgement? He asks. Eleven shuts up. Our enemy is weak yet reckless. They will surely scurry around to try to find us without success, and the Cyber Angels will distract them quite nicely.
Hmm, if I may bring them up, what will we do about them? They're a potent fighting force.
I'm convinced that they are no threat to us. Were it not for that staff... His voice grows a venomous edge, then goes back to being absolutely flat. We will simply see.
Could I smash them? I need the... I mean. With your due authorization, Lord Set, may I destroy them?
We will see... On the more urgent topic, we will continue to have Troa be our mole. With some luck, they'll trust her enough to be brought into the base. Set hand over the earring he made, and keep the original one. At which point, those fools will soon be wishing they were merely fighting Narktus, or some dimwit invader who crawled out of the evolutionary mud.
Eleven nods, and pretty much everyone in the room leaves, leaving Set alone with the earring. He thinks about crushing it for a moment, but he just stare flatly at it instead.
How unsightly. He contemplate.
Thor looks through the window, and does a double take upon realizing that it was Iris singing up on that stage.
He walks through the door leading into the building, then approaches the stage to get a better view of her performance.
