As Nyarlathotep secretly listened to Dave and Gamechanger's conversation for his own amusement, he was interrupted by Medusa. "Is it finished?" "Yes, almost." answered the Outer God, looking at an immense dungeon being painted by Drawcia. "This should take 1 or 2 minutes. Enough for you to submit our idea to Valecor and the nominators."
"Ah yes, the nominators... A shame that some of them are actually planning against Scipion and us after his potential defeat. At least, that's what you told me." "In fact, I'm actually listening to a conversation between 2 of them, Gamechanger and Dave. Then again, Gamechanger and Scipion were fierce rivals before the incident and I know how exactly each one of these mortals thinks of us deep inside. There is nothing to worry about."
Both looked at the rest of the guard, watching Drawcia's work on the fortress. Lemmy walked to Medusa and asked her if he will soon be able to join Bowser's kart race. Medusa replied "You will join your.... master? Father? Whatever he is to you once I will say so. I still cannot believe that some of these fools are wasting their times into racing instead of planning or training. I'll go to Valecor now, so prepare yourself if he accept."
As the rest of the group entered the massive tower, Medusa took a paper with the name of every nominators and villains from Valecor's army. As she was about to teleport, Risotto approached her. "You know that Valecor is currently planning to recruit Hades as well. I don't even know if he also want to recruit the boss from my world as well." "Don't even dare remind me of this insolent bastard..." hissed the godess. "If he, or the boss were to join him, we'd better ignore them. Just look at what currently happens with Pharynx and Chrysalis. Now go." She then vanished away, looking for Valecor.
Hades of the Kid Icarus universe emerges from a portal.
Hades: Ah, the Hunger Games! The perfect place to gather more souls for me!
Suddenly a shadow emerges from the ground.
Valecor: My thoughts exactly. Glad I found you on my way back from the arena.
And just who are you?
I am Valecor, a personification of evil. I'm the leader of a team of villains from across the multiverse and you seem to be an prime addition, as we could use all the help we can get to beat a greater threat to us. Said threat is an out of control nominator named Scipion, and I'm in a bet with his guard over who wins: me or Scipion. Help me out and I'll help you gets souls in return.
Scipion? Ah yes, Medusa is working for him, not that it matters to me as long as she does her job to me. Sure, I'll help you, this little competition sounds fun! Just let me have my time in the games first, I want to mess with the tributes!
Sure, go right ahead!
Valecor smiles, knowing this exchange happened in full view of Scipion's lair some distance away.
Valecor and the group arrive at the GASK labs and see some scientists talking to a green, skull-faced kid.
???: Tell me more about these "Hunger Games". They seem like something I can get behind!
Who's that guy?
Mr. X turns to him.
That's Caliborn of the Homestuck universe. He just arrived here a while ago by accident while traveling in time-space.
Ah, I'm not too well-versed in that guy's world as the nightmares I'm made of don't tell me much about him, but i do know he's a bad guy. I thought he'd speak louder than that.
That's how he types, not how he talks.
Ah. Say, while I'm here, how's that tape I sent you doing? Any progress?
it turns out to be just an ordinary recorded message. What do you want us to do with it?
Destroy it. If it's something important then Dave can just tell me himself as we're part of an alliance now for the time being.
After getting the portal ready for them, they enter it.
The villains arrive at the kart racing track in Neo Bowser City, a sprawling futuristic city themed after Bowser.
Bowser goes up to one of the metal pieces lining the track and rips it off.
I know this is one of the pieces as I placed it here myself, don't know what happened to the others as I had my minions place them.
Well I guess we may have to get GASK to scan that piece and make a radar or detector of some sort for them, otherwise this would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Bowser sends one his minions into the portal with the piece as Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings (sans Lemmy of course) finish a lap of the track and arrive were the villains are.
Bowser Jr.: Dad, who are these guys?
I'm part of an evil alliance now son, so these are our guests. Say, since you guys are here, why don't you and the Koopalings teach these fellow villains how to race a kart?
Sure thing, Dad!
Looking over the piece, Valecor ponders.
Hmm... it now occurred to me we may need more magic users to pull this off as holding Exor together long enough for us to go into that dimension and find smithy would need a lot of magic.
Bowser whistles at some Paratroopas, causing them to float above the clouds. A moment later and a huge airship bursts out of the clouds and lands in front of the villains.
Let's go to Bowser Castle, most of my Magikoopas train there!
As Valecor was about to follow Bowser to his castle, Medusa appeared in front of him, watching the racing villains with disgust.
"I see that you are busy with recruiting new allies. At least, you give 100% of your energy for achieving your goals, unlike some people..." She then invited him to speak with her alone.
"You've certainly noticed that we consider most of your allies as mere weakling or untrustworthy people. Althought we respect you, that's not the case for most your allies. We also know that it could be quite difficult for them to work with the nominators and the heroes... That is why we created what is called, "the Trials chambers". In order to train against Scipion and to test loyalties between villains, heroes and you, we've created a tower with 16 floors. In each floor, they'll have to pass one test hosted by each member of our group. Of course, a great award awaits the winners at the end. However, if they fail, the sentence will be very... unforgettable. It should motivate them."
She then gave a list to Valecor. "Of course, we'll need your approval, as well as the heroes's one. I've already sent my request and the list to the Capitol. Should you accept, I would like you to choose 2 villains from your legion, just like the nominators will choose a pair as well. They'll either go to the tower themselves, or submit one of their heroes. These 4 shall be the first one to enter and test the trials."
Looking back at the race track, both were surprised to see Lemmy somehow taking a kart, despite Medusa's order. Mentally speaking with him, she ordered him to get back to the tower. But the koopaling replied:
"Oh, Don't worry! Thanks to Mr. Nyaroth...Nyorla...Nar... Oh well, Mr. Outer God, we can create replicas of ourselves, sharing the same soul. I'm at the racing track and at the tower at the same time. And Mrs. Cetrion is at the tower while her double is about to participate in the games! Yay!"
"I see... Tell her to do a little favor to me. Althought I sweared not to interact at all with Hades and I will keep my promise, I would like her to ensure that his little trip in the arena would be... a disaster for him." . Cutting the communication with him, she turned back to Valecor, waiting for his answer.

Sounds like a perfect plan to me. I already know who for sure would be my first pick: Smithy, once I recruit him. Having a loyal blacksmith would work wonders for the defenses of an evil lair. As for the second one, I don't know yet. May just have to pick one of their names at random from a box if I can't decide by the time Smithy joins. Also, since you took the time to meet me in person, as a suggestion I advise focusing on the defenses of your own lair as well in case Scipion were to attack you. In his insanity-induced state, he'll probably just remember that you used to be his allies and are now working for the enemy and attack you for that while forgetting everything else regarding that.
Just then Bowser felt the air distort behind him.
Dimentio: Hello arm-flailer, long time no see—
He didn't even get to finish that sentence as Bowser backhands him with a punch to the face without even looking.
Shut up. What do you want? How are you even here? The last of saw of you, you blown up in that weird fusion of you, the Chaos Heart, and Luigi!
Rubbing his face, Dimentio grins.
Ah ha ha ha ha ha... I am a master of illusions after all. What made you think there wasn't any illusions in that fight? I just put a portion of my power in that fusion and watched the the shadows behind my own illusions! Amazing what a little ventriloquism can do...
So it was all for nothing? Arrgghhh...
Bowser grumbles and he puts his hands on his head in frustration.
Turning back at Medusa after seeing that scene Valecor responds.
Ok, now considering having Dimentio be my second choice. Though as it seems him and Bowser are going to be stuck here for a while as we get the mess with Smithy sorted out this may be a potential bonding time, so I'm willing to wait on it.

Bale: Well, just one week til' my birthday, I'll nominate my OTP again! This time they shall be Sailor Moon-styled!
Bale then used his powers to summon a human version of Meta Knight dressed with a white suit, Domino Mask and top hat and a Lucina in a white dress to his place
Lucina: What is this place?
Meta Knight: You! Why did you summoned us here?
Bale: Hello! I will need you two to do me a favor and go to a deadly competition there to win! Can ya?
Meta Knight: Never! I won't risk Lucina's life for a dumb competition!
Bale: Well too bad, off you go!
Bale then sent both to the Capitol, hoping that both could make it to the Hall of Fame
After having dealt with the armored warrior, Thor and the group sat down to discuss the recent events that happened
Thor: Until Strange tells us why Thanos snapped twice we won't be able to do anything about this...
Star: Okay my life is quite a disaster now! First, Marco, Tom Janna and I got transported to some strange games w, then we died there, and then we're back here again.
Marco: And now everyone dies and then they don't, could this get any weirder?
Just as they spoke, a portal opened in the sky for a seconds before dropping 2 figures, then the portal closed, the figures were a round blue creature and a blue-haired woman, both dressed like warriors.
Meta Knight: Where are we?
Lucina: I don't know?
Star: Hey, I know those guys! We were together in the Hunger Games.
Loki: I think Thanos' actions have brought these guys here. I suppose there's more to come.
Thor: Whatever it is we shall be ready.
"81... 82... 83! Phew, that's everyone!"
6001 writes additional notes about the Smash Fighters in the Database, taking note of which worlds would actually have more representative tributes accounting for them. She's spent so much time counting them all that she only realized just now that the season has ended.
She dials another number.
"All Twiddiedinkies are priced to move!!" a gruff voice responds.
"Hey Crazy Dave, I'd like to order a sprout."
"Is that for ya Zen Garden?"
"No, I'm gonna send this to the Hunger Games."
"Are ya CRAZY?!?!"
"Yes, I am that crazy... relatively speaking."
"If ya serious about that, then go ahead. Why? Because I'm CRRRRRRRRRRRRRAZY!!!"
"Well then, how much?"
"$7500?! Can we lower the price? In case I plan to nominate another plant in the future."
6k1 plants the sprout she ordered from Crazy Dave, which she managed to buy at half the price, free shipping included. After watering and giving it fertilizer, it instantly grows into a smiling golden flower, ready to sing her hit song.
I was hoping it would be one of the stronger plants like the Melon-pult, but I'll take it! 6k1 thinks.
She kneels down to whisper to the flower. "Don't be surprised if the other tributes think you're that other golden flower, okay?"
The Sunflower just keeps bouncing to the jazzy rhythm of the earth itself.
6k1 gets up and goes back to the library. As she leaves, a zombie in a tattered brown coat rises from the ground right next to the Sunflower, ready to eat some brains.
6k1 turns on the feed and watches the other tributes pour in. She notices that Dave the Assassin's are missing.
What's taking them so long? I can assume that Dave had his assistants back in his base submit his tributes last season on his behalf, but this is still concerning...
She tries contacting him with the hologram transmitter. No response.
Edited by TroperNo9001 on Jun 6th 2019 at 1:39:08 AM
When the elevator suddenly descended as if being dropped from a skyscraper, Dave (rather surprisingly, even to himself) wasn't fazed by the speed. When Detective Gamechanger reveals his intentions, his face remains unchanged.
"That.... is what you wish?" Dave asked in a blank tone. Then his lips curled into a smirk.
"Then you've come to the right man for the job. All I wish in return is intel on Valecor, since I have no doubt that you would be the one nominator closest to him while I have no intentions of talking to him directly. I've not a speck of interest in your alliance with him, but intel on whatever he's planning to do and on the upgrades placed on both your bases will be enough for me to at least care about its existence."
His smirk turns into a grin.
"If you can do that, I'll be willing to search for the underground heroes you so truly wants. After all, I do that a lot." Then the grin disappears, replaced with a dark glare that could burn the detective alive if looks could kill someone. "But.... I demand your promise, that you will tell everything that you've got from them in exact truths, not in half-truths or straight up lies. And I will remind you not to backstab me, and in return I promise you that I won't be backstabbing you."
The glare disappears, and he offers a hand shake. "Do we have a deal?"
Once his business with Det. GC is finished, Dave returns to the party and calls for the remaining members of his group.
"Everyone, it's time to go home. I'm certain all of you are tired, and I'd prefer it if we all call it a day."
"But what if something terrible actually happens?" Link asks.
"Worry not. I've placed a little group of drones hidden somewhere, to ensure that nothing bad will happen and evacuate anyone still here if it does."
Dave then thanks the passing Det. GC for everything, bids him farewell and leaves the house. Exiting the gates, he summons a portal, and the group departs, with him the last to go. The portal closes as soon as he does so.
The group walks in to the Main Hall of the base. Nemo is waiting for them there.
"Hey, everyone! Nice to see you all back here!"
"Hey, Nemo. A bit of a surprise to see you here."
"I'm rather bored, what else to do but wait?"
The fish boy greets Princess Twilight happpily, remembering his brief interaction with her and the other Princesses in OT Season 220. The Princess of Friendship greets him back.
"Anyway, what's the current status?"
"I believe it's almost time for the next nominations."
"Okay, then. I can afford some time to return you guys home, is that alright?"
"But what if 6k1 asks about me?"
"I'll tell her that I had you sent home on her behalf; I'm sure she'll understand. Surely she'd sent the other group home as well from the Science Center. C'mon, I'll lead you to the Tribunal Transportation Room, where I send and return tributes back to their homeworlds (if y'all forgot about it."
Dave had returned to his quarters, having just sent the group, Nemo included, back to their homes. He decided to take a rest.
Unfortunately, because he was really tired, he ended up oversleeping. And now he's in quite a hurry, looking for tributes.
Then an idea struck him. If he had nominated Navi once, why not have Tatl join the list? But he decides not to bring her brother Tael just yet. Instead, he chooses to imagine someone else who's sassy and is associated with yellow. His thoughts then goes to Sora's Nobody, Roxas. Yes, surely he will do for now.
He submits the two's list to the Capitol, summons them and, after some chit chat, sends them on their way. Afterwards, he takes a look at his hologram transmitter. A button to its left is flashing red.
"Seems to me that someone had made a missed call."
He presses the button, which summons an image of TRP-6001. Of course, she would be concerned. He then turns on the transmitter and calls her.
"Hey, 6k1. Sorry for the missed call and late tribute entry. I overslept. Too tired from the party, y'know?"
He smiles at her warmly. "I do appreciate your concern, however. Oh, before I forget, I had sent Twilight back to Equestria myself. I believe you had sent the other group back home as well, right?"
She nods in confirmation.
"Just as I thought. You do understand, right?"
"Okay. I'll see you around soon. Bye!
Dave ends the call, then summons a clone of himself. He tells him to guard his base, for he will be gone for a little while. The clone affirms the order, and departs. Dave then summons some special clothes, wears them and departs with a portal.
It's Eid al-Fitr where I am, if you're wondering what that last one is about.
The detective shakes Dave's hand.
It's a deal.
Back on the surface, the detective sees that his party is ending as several guests have left already (save of any that wished to remain there). His phone rings and he receives word from the capitol that they need his help with something.
Valecor smiles as he watches the detective leave for the capitol.
Hmmm... this sounds promising...
He merges with the shadow clone that was already present at the party before secretly casting off a new one from the shadows, having it follow the detective.
6k1 breathes a sigh of relief. "It's okay. I hope you had fun at the party, though!"
She then tells Dave that she also sent her tributes back home.
"Also, Carlos and Power had some thoughts about your favorite fish boi..." She relates to him that Carlos wasn't ready to forgive him and Power Stroke remembered her friendship with him. After which, she says goodbye and goes back to work.
"Okay, time to sort out this raw data before I go back in time..."
Edited by TroperNo9001 on Jun 6th 2019 at 1:35:47 AM
"Very well. I shall wait until you send the 2 villains at the dungeon. I will take my leave."
She then raised her staff and teleported back to the tower. However, she was not happy to see that the message she sent to the Capitol has been lost. Out of patience, she sent Giegue himself to recruit the two heroes/nominators, starting with Gamechanger. As she entered the dungeon, Death was waiting for her inside.
"Did Nyarlathotep found him?" "No. His energy is also hidden from him as well. Then again, the Void is a confusing place, even for an Outer God. But I'm sure I could feel his powers once he will be complete" The two villains continued chatting about defenses against Scipion before leaving to their respective floors.
Edited by Scipion3 on Jun 10th 2019 at 1:25:53 PM
The detective arrives at President Snow's home and sits down with him at a table.
Snow: I called you here as I need your advice on what people to send to this dungeon Scipion's guard set up. Any ideas?
Well, I know one of his guard is Ridley, so I suggest sending Samus to make sure he's up to the test as well. I personally haven't seen the entirety of Scipion's Guard despite my history with him, but I saw Zira among them so I also suggest picking Simba to test her as well. Both Ridley and Zira tried to eat me once, so you could say this is my way of payback.
Very well then, once you're ready help us summon them when you have the chance.
After the detective leaves, Valecor rises up from the shadows and reveals himself in front of Snow.
Hello again Snow. Been wanting to talk to you again for a while.
Snow moves away a bit in alarm.
You!? What to you want!?
Relax, I'm not here to attack you or anything. Instead, I have a proposition for you.
And just what is that?
I want you to join sides with my group as our agent of this world. We would help you remove any threats to your power and won't harm any of the native residents. In exchange you'll help us with anything we need your services for and let us host the villain season that keeps being tossed around at polls. Do we have a deal?
That's a better deal than I thought you would give me. I accept.
The two shake hands.
The detective returns home to find that Valecor was gone. He finds a note at the stage he was at: "Went back to my lair. ~Valecor".
I figured he'd be gone by the time I got back. Anyways, since we're currently dealing with a nightmare fuel situation...
The detective sets in the dimensional coordinates of a dimension into a interdimensional device of his and presses the button, causing a portal to open open. Out of the portal floats Cresselia. The detective briefly fills her in on the situation.
Literal nightmare fuel... this sounds like the kind of thing that Darkrai of my world would do. It's a relief knowing that Palkia cause him to lose his memories. Given what you told me I don't even think my Lunar Wings would have much of an affect on either Scipion or Valecor, though I think I would be able to get rid of any nightmares the two cause to others. Sorry that I won't be of much help against beings like those.
That's ok, even the smallest bit of help is appreciated.
Unbeknownest to the two of them, a shadow clone Valecor left behind was hidden int he shadows, and he slipped into the portal Cresselia came from, smiling as he thought about Darkrai.
The shadow clone that was with Hades arrives at the base.
So, how is the progress going on that piece of Exor that was sent to you guys?
Mr. X It'll take some time for the radar to be built. All we know is that the metal is of an alloy we haven't seen before.
Nodding, Valecor when goes up to Caliborn, who was still learning about the games.
Say, you're Caliborn, right?
I am, and who are you?
I'm the leader of a group of villains that seek the conquest of everything. How about joining our team? You can get to cause all the mayhem and destruction you want to the heroes we want gone and the things said heroes care about!
The cherub grins.
That sounds fun. I'll consider it.
GASK here will lead you to our base if you want to go there, just say the word.
With that, the shadow clone leaves.
Gathering all the villains that wish to leave to Bowser Castle, Valecor climbs on board.
Bowser: We'll stop at Monstro Town on the way for refueling and to restock on supplies, then Bowser Castle is next.
With that the ships flies into the clouds.
So, you have a whole city about you huh? What's the deal with that?
I had it built purely for my minions to live in. It has no military installations, just a place for him to relax and have fun with their families. The military stuff it at my castle.
Ah. And why is it called *Neo* Bowser City?
Bowser looks down in embarrassment.
My minions accidentally destroyed the first one in their incompetence.
With all the raw data sorted out, 6k1 heads to her time machine. She sets the dial back to Season 14, but decides to skip the Bloodbath, knowing what happened to all those Smash Fighters...
6k1 arrives sometime after the Bloodbath and starts taking notes on the interactions among the tributes. She looks for some trees or bushes to hide behind as she observes them, taking care not to step on Iron Man, who shrunk to the size of Ant-Man in the Bloodbath after drinking a strange drink.
She then hops from day to day, continuing her work. Her eyes are on Ariel and Asriel Dreemurr, her tributes that season. The mermaid went insane from becoming a wendigo while the goat kid was just being the sweet child he was, outside of a few mean things he did.
Saber Alter/Eris OTP. 6k1 jots down in her notes about Asriel as she observes him making a meme about his favorite couple. She then jumps to the first Arena Event, where various magic items were scattered about for the tributes to cast spells on their opponents.
Ariel growls what seems to be the words "seismela tremoro" as she holds a spellbook, summoning flaming meteors on Saber Alter and Eris, with Mr. Clean as collateral damage. 6k1 runs for cover as the meteors rain down on them, trying to avoid the magical madness going on around her. She jumps into her time machine for safety, and promptly crosses out the note about the couple before proceeding to the rest of the season.
After witnessing Asriel foolishly take off his space helmet in the second Arena Event, Iron Man rust in the rain, and German Levitating StickA/N actually Zabuza Momochi, who can't speak German well get crushed by a piano, 6k1 shakes her head, wraps up her work, and sets the dial back to the present day. Franky may have won, but she wishes there was an epic final battle between the final three.
6k1 checks her watch as soon as she steps into the basement, and then turns on the Arena feed. The tributes are all standing on their podiums, waiting for the horn to sound. While waiting, 6k1 spends the next few hours updating the Database to v0.14. Once done, she stretches her arms before getting a preview of the Reaping for the season after that.
Her eyes land on all 74 Crystal Dragons. "Here we go again..."

Having been sent into the games by GASK, Caliborn is attacked by both Roxas and Lucina as they could tell he's bad news. Angry, he kills them both.
Hades notices Cetrion looking at him suspiciously from time to time.
Hey, what's that chick up to? Does she have the hots for me or something? Don't feel like dealing with her myself, so...
He sees Whimsicott playing with a butterfly and approaches her.
Hey fluffball, wanna get rid of that Cetrion of there for me? Don't, and I'll eat your soul!
Terrified of Hades, Whimsicott obeys and picks a fight with Cetrion, eventually killing both her and Ichi.
Ah ha ha ha ha ha! Now that's the spirit!
Now in a good mood, he sees BTS reading a flier about something. Curious, he walks over and sees it's about the Amazing Race. Seeing that it looks fun, he teams up with them to go on the Amazing Race.
Upon return from a leg of the Amazing Race, Hades then finds Caliborn making out with a body pillow of Clover. The cherub turns to him, annoyed.
What? This is art! Now go away!
Medusa crossed her arms, unhappy with Cetrion's early death. She asked angrily the godess WHY she let herself killed by that weak pokemon.
"Althought I know Hades threatened her, her soul was virtuous. As a godess of virtue, I had to spare her and accept my fate. Besides, Hades doesn't need me for having a bad time and the God-Beast Lightgazer is still alive as well."
"To be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing Hades win this one." said Eris, interrupting the conversation and much to Medusa's anger. "I haven't interacted at all with him, back when Scipion nominated both of us at Season 14, but I've heard he is quite a chaotic gentleman. He knows how gods should have fun, unlike you two." "Don't tell me you actually want to date with that living trash!" yelled Medusa, much to Eris's amusement. "Please, I'm still looking for my dear Saber Alter after all this time. If I wanted to, Hades would be a friend and nothing more."
Giegue entered the room, telling the three godesses that the message have finally been sent to the Capitol. They joined the rest of the guard, looking at the Lightgazer creating a statue of it... somehow T-posing.

KLS is in an interrogation room, and turns the light over to his first suspect… Tae Yamada. While she doesn’t blink, two once-shadows cover their eyes briefly.
“Sorry about that, guys. It’s just that it’s a bit dark in here.”
“It’s okay, sir.”
Tae nods with a grunt.
“Now, the main reason why I’ve brought you here, Tae, was to discuss about this piece that was leaked.”
KLS throws the newspaper to the other side of the table, in front of Tae’s view, reading the same title. Tae studies it momentarily.
“And the main reason why I’ve brought you two along, Sakura and Saki, was to help interpret for our witness. As much as I’d hate to admit it… I don’t want any of our Mayors, even if it’s a reviled one, kicked out over something unsavoury.”
“What the hell’s in it for us? There’d better be a good reason for helping that bitch!”
“What if I told you that you’d all get chicken?”
Suddenly, Saki glows with a smile.
“Okay, I’m sold!”
Sakura chuckles as Tae briefly drools.
“Excellent. Now, Tae, I want you to explain all that you can. Nod or shake your head if your friends say something.”
“Okay. Now, what do you know about this article?”
Tae tries to utter a coherent sentence, though she only mumbles her words.
“What Tae is saying is that she saw two figures in the park at night, exchanging information with a disguised man.”
“Okay, then. Do you know what this has to do with the related article?”
Tae nods, before mumbling a sentence.
“I’m told that his mission was to run Myne out of her role as Mayor. Apparently, he wasn’t too happy with the outcome.”
“Did you get a good look at the shadows?”
Tae closes her eyes, before shakily nodding and mumbling. Saki and Sakura look at each other in shock, before looking to KLS.
“Sir… I think there may be some dissent between the office and the candidates.”
KLS looks down, sighing, before looking up to the trio and smiling.
“Thank you all. You’ve been very helpful.”
KLS takes out half a dozen coupons for Drive-In Tori to Sakura and Saki, and a special coupon for Tae.
“Get you and your fellow idols something nice.”
Sakura and Saki nod, with Tae momentarily nodding as well. After Tae gets up, the trio leave. Moments later, KLS crosses off Tae Yamada on his list.
“Given that the men may have played a part, I might as well continue my investigation with them, before I target my boardroom members one by one.”
KLS circles the next suspects, being Glenn Quagmire, Vincent Swan and Francis Urquhart, before taking the list with him and leaving the room.
KLS enters the boardroom, with him the only one there. He goes to his seat, and turns on the television, seeing a Whimsicott taking down two tributes in the Bloodbath. He shows a brief smile.
“Somehow, it feels like I have a bad feeling about this…”

Soon after chatting with Meta Knight and Lucina, Thor and the others saw coming a large group of armored warriors, similar to the one they defeated not too long ago.
Meta Knight: What are those things?
Star: A Solarian Warrior, a lot of them!
Marco: Just one of them took us long to defeat... What will we do about all these?!
Suddenly they heard a roar in the distance as a giant reptilian monster charged a blue beam and fired it at the warriors, destroying most of them, causing the surviving warriors to flee in terror.
Thor: Well that problem is taken care of...
Loki: Yeah but there's an even bigger one now!
However the giant monster simply left after dealing with the warriors to parts unknown
Tom: Or maybe not... But this still is an indicator that bad things are going to happen.
Star: We have to find a way to undo this all before things get worse.
As soon as they finished speaking to one another about the issue, Thor and Star decided to go to Earth to find out if Strange had discovered the Gauntlet's location
Bale: Dammit Lucina! I expected you to be more self-preserving. Hopefully this will allow Meta to step up his game.
Mr. Godzilla: I don't know man, I feel like even if he wins, he will be majorly pissed at us.
Bale: He could be, but he won't be a threat to us.
Meanwhile Meta Knight was sad and angry as he looked at the report of Lucina's death
Meta Knight: That bastard, Bale, he roped us into this, and she's dead because of it! Once this is over, I will find him and kill him!
Meta then decided to start training his apprentice to prepare for whatever comes next.
The shadow clone that was at GASK arrives at Scipion's lair. He knocks on the door.
Is anyone there? I decided to come personally to deliver news about what tributes GC and Snow are planning to send as I spied on them.
"Ribey will keep going... Ribey will... Commander has gifted me a precious gift, with a human soul, I feel alive again..."
The Dark Soul of Man, or what's left of Ribey, has entered the arena, now covered with a black aura. The human soul stored within Ribey has begun to override her, slowly corrupting her into a bloodthirsty entity whose only purpose is to kill.
"Commander, what's this feeling? Curses! It... hurts... What... was... that?!"
"Is this... a memory of some sort? Am I... a human to begin with? I feel like I'm... no longer myself..."
"Is this... my soul? My name... is Sayaka? My-"
"Argh! Curses! Help me, Commander! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!"
"Ribey! Answer me! RIBEY!!"
Ever since the Great Catastrophe, Scientist Hassel has devoted his life to resurrect Sayaka at all cost. Ribey is Sayaka's new body, while she indeed has a real soul, a machine doesn't have humanity. In a desperate attempt, Scientist Hassel grants Ribey humanity in the form of a black sprite. It has gone a little bit too well. Not only does Ribey recover her past life memory, the Dark of humanity has also begun to manifest.
Driven by her instinct to kill and gain more souls, the first thing she does is to go after the Fairy Prince, relentless bashing him until he's almost dead.
"I've done it, I've done it! I have found my own soul! I have... my own soul... I am... the soul!"
Her body clearly isn't made to sustain the Dark Soul of humanity, let along all the emotional burdens Sayaka has faced, and she becomes more and more unstable.
Ah! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Commander, I'm no longer a machine, I'm now a human! A human with a human soul! Look at me, Commander!
She's not the Ribey as we know anymore. The Dark of humanity has completely corrupted her, and the human soul Scientist Hassel used as Ribey's CPU has taken over her mind.
"Wait, no, since when do I speak like a machine? Commander this and Commander that?"
She continues to smack the Fairy Prince with her rifle's stock.
"My name is not Ribey, I am a Magical Girl, MY NAME IS SAYAKA!!"
She keeps smacking the Fairy Prince, again, again, and again.
"Be gone with you! Die- WHAT?!
As Ribey is about to deliver a finishing blow, the Fairy Prince suddenly comes back in a more powerful form from the blink of death via sheer determination alone. Even with the power of the Dark Soul, she fails to catch up with the Fairy Prince and all she can do is to watch him walking away from her.
"I'm not done with you yet! Come back!"
Suddenly, behind the shadow clone a knife came out of nowhere aiming at it. It was pretty easy for Valecor to destroy the knife, without even looking at it. Dropping out his invisibility, Risotto came to Valecor.
"Your skills are admirable. I truly wonder if this will be the same for the first testers. Follow me. The rest of my crew is currently watching the season inside the tower of trials."
As they left Scipion's lair to the dungeon, Risotto gave Valecor 2 cameras, one for him and the other for whoever nominated the heroes. "These will show what is happening inside the tower when they'll arrive. It should give you an idea about our respective tests, especially since some of them were made to test loyalties to you."
Mett and friends decide to leave the party,seeing as they're probably the only ones left. Not wanting to go through the ruins again, Sunset and Zoe combine their powers to teleport them to Mett's house.
"Aw man...I expected better from you Mad Mew Mew." Mett sighs.
Valecor takes a look at the cameras on the way to where Scipion's guard are.
Nice. Also, I would've used my powers to explore the lair unnoticed and look for you guys, but I figured I'd be nice an knock first.
Hades makes a text message that reads "How about a cup of you?", but then realizes he sent it to Ribey instead of Joe and deletes it.
After finally confronting Hades and telling him what it is, Hades points out that like Lightgazer he too is a fellow lover of destruction and that they should team up to help cause more of it, with him raking in the souls that result from that. The two then strike up a friendship and team up in Panem's Got Talent, which they get the Golden Buzzer. Lightgazer even lets Hades hug it to celebrate.
Risotto let out a faint smile. "I see. To be fair, we would certainly have see you if you wanted to explore Scipion's lair unnoticed, especially with all the deities in our group. I also apologise for this little aggression. I sometimes do the same with my men and the rest of the guard to test their reactions and abilities. In an organisation like Passione, you must always be on your guard. The same also applies here."
"Seriously, is that an obsession for you to actually ruin his fun?" asked Ryuga, annoyed by this. "Heck, you've already did the same thing with Palutena and Pit, you should stop with this obsessive hate of yours."
"Ugh, fine..." sighed the godess as she calmed down. "But you should watch your tone boy, you are speaking to a godess." "I couldn't care less about that. Seriously, you're just acting like Zira right now." The lioness just stared at him with an angry glare.
Valecor arrives at the room and hears Medusa's scream.
Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing well. I have some things to talk about that I felt was best to deliver to you in person. And what are you trying to do, wake up the dead with that voice or break a few windows?
Meta Knight spent some time beating up Gara, simply to relieve his anger over losing Lucina, he then spent the night being angry at the world, when suddenly he was approached by another tribute, a large bird-like monster who was accompanied by Hades, a Gingerbread Man, a human named Joe and a strange being named Torimoti
Yian Kut-Ku: you don't look happy, how about I cheer you up!?
Meta Knight: Go away...
Yian Kut-Ku: Well, too bad, everybody here it goes: "EVERYBODY GET UP IT'S TIME TO SLAM NOW! WE GOT A REAL JAM GOIN' DOWN WELCOME TO TH-
Yian and his group started to dance, but then Meta Knight promptly threw his sword at their feet and stormed off angrily. He then proceeded to drink himself to sleep. When he woke up the next day he launched into a small rant stating his hatred of other three tributes, which included Joe and Torimoti for being insensitive, before passing out.
Ribey has spent several days to hunt down her foes, and yet, due to her unstable nature, she fails miserably.
At the third day of the season, she comes across a new prey: Aya, and they both quickly get into a fight.
Must... kill... all...
Ribey tries to shoot down Aya with several dark orbs, but Aya is an expert of bullet dodging, and she easily dodges Ribey's dark orbs. Ribey then tries to hit Aya with her rifle's stock, but that fails as well, as Aya uses her camera's flashlight to blind Ribey. It is only when Ribey begins to create a smokescreen by casting a poisonous dark fog, she finally gains an upper hand.
Keep trying. I am the Magical Girl Of Justice, you're just a bird, there's no way a bird can kill a human- WHAT?!
Just as she's about to finish off Aya by casting homing dark orbs, Yian Ku-Kut, a Bird Wyvern, sudden appears behind and tears Ribey into pieces.
The Bird Wyvern clearly doesn't seem to understand human language, it continues to tear off Ribey's body, bit by bit, until she's dead.
Being a Tactical Doll, Ribey isn't edible, unlike Aya, who soon becomes the Bird Wyvern's newest meal. She spends her last moment to apologise to her handler, tearfully. Alas, Ribey dies again.
Commander... I have failed...
"Somebody, please? Retrieve Ribey!"
Scientist Hassel issues an order to retrieve Ribey's remains, but no one answered. Having died too many times, most of the scientists no longer trust that Ribey would do anything good. He then personally heads to the arena, but the season hasn't ended yet and he can't enter the arena.
By the time when he reached the arena, a few cannon shots can be heard, and Ribey is dead. The scientist can do nothing but to watch his adorable girl dying again on the field.
