Peppa, Gohan, Videl, and Pantea headed down to get the Ultra Divine Water, all four of them succeeding on getting past Darkness’ Trials and drinking the liquid, with all of them gaining a tremendous boost to their strength, Peppa even briefly tapping into extrordinary power. But now, the last few hours before the Ozotto Games begin have drawn to a close...
Rolled 11, 11, 8, 14, 6 = 50 (5d20)>>1903272“So, Maple... do you feel ready for this?” Goku asks you confidently, checking on the bag of Senzu Beans Korin gave you. 20 in total, it should be enough to keep you all living through this. You hope.“We’ve trained for a year for this. All of us. We are ready, right guys?” you ask your friends.Unanimous shouts of assurance echo from the Lookout. You spot the kids finally returning... and you can feel tremendous power from all of them, especially Peppa. In fact... she might be stronger than Bra now. Your son and daughter run over to you and Goku. “Mom, mom! We did it, we got stronger!” little Peppa exclaims, tail swaying joyfully.You pat her hair. “Heh, I can tell. Were you nice to Darkness?”“Uh-huh! Thanked him and everything!” she replies, moving over to her dad, Goku picking her up, the two of them laughing together.Gohan approaches you, nudging you, then tapping the side of his head. Needs to talk telepathically? Well, let’s see... ‘Mom... something different happened down there.’‘What do you mean?’‘It was strange, but... I felt sis’s power jump way higher than even what it is now. Like it doubled or something. Her hair changed a bit, and her aura... there was something strange about it.’...You sense a bit of a mix of jealousy and yet hope from him. He’s conflicted, but you do get a glimpse of what he’s talking about. Peppa’s hair stands up a bit more... her aura sparks like the Raio-ken and Raio-Ten... wait. Wait a second. Glancing at Bra, you recall her talking about getting angry at Vegeta, and knocking him out. Might this be the same thing she’s felt too? Like Vegeta’s been hoping for, a power... beyond Super Saiyan?You also notice that... Videl seemed to have something strange happen to her too. Not as drastic as Peppa’s brief moment, but there’s something she might have tapped into too. She does seem extremely proud as she talks with her dad about her experiences down there...>A. Peppa doesn’t seem to remember it, but might not hurt to check>B. Talk with Videl a bit, see how she’s feeling after that experience>C. You don’t really have much time left to stall, better head to Ozotto now>D. Something else?Pick one.
>>1903277>A. Peppa doesn’t seem to remember it, but might not hurt to checkTake her to Trip to sense her potential and see what unlocking it might do.
>>1903277>A. Peppa doesn’t seem to remember it, but might not hurt to check>Remember time is short, though. Perhaps send them on ahead a bit if we're confident we can catch up to them.
>>1903333Alternatively, >C. but take a moment to tell her to try to remember and focus on that moment while it's still fresh. We can follow up when the world isn't on the knifes edge.
>>1903277“Say, Peppa... what exactly happened down there, if you don’t mind telling me?” you ask the girl.“Whatcha’ mean, mom?”“Well... what did you feel when you got stronger?”She seems to sink back a bit in her father’s arms. “...Well, when I drank the water, it hurt. A lot.”Goku rubs the back of his neck. “Yeah, wasn’t exactly the most pleasant experience.”“But... I dunno, I saw everyone hurting too. I... I got scared. I was scared that everybody might not make it out of there.” she mumbles lowly. “I didn’t want to lose anyone in there, when we got so close to getting through it. But... we made it through.” she ends with a smile. “Videl did faint, though.”You ruffle her hair. “Well sweetie, sorry that you had to go through that”“Nuh-uh, I’m fine. Just... maybe don’t wanna go there again any time soon. Unless it’s to make snowmen with Mr. Darkness.” Peppa comments.You chuckle slightly. “All right, sweetie. Well... we’ve got to get going. We can talk about it a bit more later, got it?”“Sure!”You all form into four groups, Krillin, Lapis, Chuu Lee, and yourself all teleporting the fighters on the Lookout to right outside Lord Jaguar’s castle, Trunks and the Gohans just barely making it in time, locked on to Chiaotzu’s Ki. You notice that 19 is with Chiaotzu, too, giving you all a cold, emotionless stare. “...Do not think I am here to be your ally. I merely wish to observe the fight with Majin Ozotto, gather data on him for Dr. Gero.”Acer gives her a suspicious look. “...Gero talked with you again?”“I have decided that this is what he would want me to do. I will utilize my time to the best of my ability in serving his goals until we make contact again. It would be pointless to fight you all, but through this I may be useful to him.”(cont.)
>>1903435While there’s very little emotion behind her words... a lot of you can tell she’s trying to convince herself that this is the case, rather than it being exactly true. Vegeta just marches past her, not even looking her in the eye as he enters the building. All of you start to follow him... and you sense a few Ki signatures in there that are familiar. Upon reaching your destination, you can confirm that Prince Beelzebub and his cohorts are there... but there’re a couple other people in the “stands” that stand out. A small, hooded figure, some disguised alien that’s surrounded by booze, Lord Jaguar himself in a little throne, and...“Kougeki!” Piccolo shouts to the blue man, clenching his fist. “So, you’re here for Towa, are you?”“You have it all wrong, Piccolo. I’m getting a much needed vacation.” the Heran chuckles maliciously. “What better entertainment than watching you get thrashed by this monster? That, and have to watch over a certain other brat.”“Ah, so you aren’t fighting. So that makes seven... eight... eh, fair enough.” Ozotto, standing in the middle of the ring, comments. “I assume all our fighters are here?”>A. Check the hooded figure first>B. Ask Beelzebub if he has a plan>C. Ask your friends if anyone wants to go first>D. You’ve been waiting for this moment, time to give a speech before you lay the smackdown on Ozotto! (write-in encouraged)>E. Something else?
>>1903437>A. Check the hooded figure first>B. Ask Beelzebub if he has a plan>C. Ask your friends if anyone wants to go first>E. Samma Ditthi
>>1903437>A>BThere's no need for C, we all know who's gonna try to take first fight.
>>1903437>A & B.
>>1903437>>A. Check the hooded figure first>>B. Ask Beelzebub if he has a plan
>>1903437You approach the Demon Prince. “Beelzebub... I take it you’ve got a plan.”He smirks. “Of sorts. While I do wish I could have gotten that full boost on my own, it’s been enough to help me close the gap. Thanks again for that, by the way.”‘Like what, exactly?’ you question him telepathically.He cracks his knuckles. ‘Ozotto was right. There are other Devilmite techniques... but I’ve learned a bit more on how to balance out the powers of darkness... with the power of light.’‘...You have Light Magic?’‘Nah. Think a bit more... direct. I’ll have to keep you waiting though, don’t want to ruin the surprise. Make sure you get some sunglasses.’...Clever, clever. You next move towards the hooded figure, walking past Kougeki as Goku steps towards Ozotto. Peppa and Gohan follow along with you as Raditz backs up his brother. You look over the figure curiously; you’ve felt this Ki before. Peppa sniffs at the air. “...Do I know you?”The hooded figure turns, and you see their face has a plain mask on it. “Leave.” a girl’s voice demands.Peppa snaps her fingers. “I do know you! What’re you doin’ here? You gonna fight too, Basilea?”“I’m here to keep an eye on a certain idiot.” she grunts at your daughter. “Now leave my presence, peasants.”“I do recommend you not bother the brat there.” Kougeki tells you. “She’s all cranky, hasn’t had her nap.”“You watch YOUR tongue too, Heran.” the little demon girl growls back. “We’re here to keep things in order.”The future counterpart of your son walks to you as well, glaring down Basilea. “...I guess this makes sense. I should have known Towa would send someone to int-”“I do not intend to interfere, Saiyan. I am only here to make sure an idiot doesn’t get himself killed.”“Why are you so young?” Gohan asks her suspiciously.“Figure it out yourself. You might want to pay attention, your dear old daddy is about to make his speech.”(cont.)
>>1903567While a hundred questions race through your head, you also catch Goku about to talk to Ozotto. “I gotta say, you really do seem strong. Heh, I know what’s at stake... but can’t deny I feel a bit of excitement facing you.”“Ah, so I take it you’re here first, Son Goku?” Ozotto questions him. “You intend to spare your friends by satiating my need for vengeance?”“I doubt you’ll stop with me.” Goku replies. “I know you were friends with that Phantom guy, and I know I’d be mad if somebody came after my friends too. But... I think it’s a bit of a shame that you really want to carry through with this.”“Oh? A shame?”He nods. “Maple’s tried a few times to find a way for us to be on the same side. You’d make a great sparring partner, I think. So, what do you say, we win this, beat you, you wanna try working together?”Ozotto blinks, silent for a moment. An uproar of laughter erupts from him. “Bwahahahahahaha! I am going to miss you when you’re dead. You’re a natural comedian. Hooooh... oh, what’s with that look? You mean this is serious?”Goku crosses his arms. “Just wanna make sure you know the option’s there.”“I’ll have to pass. But that joke was enough to make me consider not drawing out your death.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNt4DxcpCvs“Kakarot, enough with your drivel.” Vegeta barks out, marching at Majin Ozotto. “If you’re done making an even greater fool of yourself, I’d say it’s time we get this farce started.”“Ah, Vegeta! Little Prince, you wish to be the first?” Ozotto questions him, tail slamming against the ground.“First? I’ll be your ONLY opponent, monster.” he declares confidently.>A. Keep watching, Vegeta seems intent on fighting first>B. Okay, wait, Basilea, you know him? Maple’s just a little lost here>C. Go to Goku, give ‘em a hug. A for effort>D. Something else?
>>1903576>D. Something else?If your so confident Ozotto, fight Vegeta and Goku in a tornado handicap match. Both of them in the ring against you at the same time.
>>1903576>B.Woah woah woah, what?Get some answers, then>C.
>>1903576>B. Okay, wait, Basilea, you know him? Maple’s just a little lost here>>C. Go to Goku, give ‘em a hug. A for effort
>>1903576“Okay, hold up! Time out! Gohan, Basilea, you know each other?” you ask the two of them.“Yes. And I know for a fact that she’s not supposed to be here.” the redheaded young man states. “Do you intend on playing this game of yours here, too?”She glances at him. “I say again, just as I said in your time, I have my own reasons for doing this. Though I guess you’re a little further along than ‘me.’ It doesn’t matter though; if anything, I’m doing your ‘job’ for you. You should be grateful, peasant.”“My ‘job?’” he repeats.“You are with the Time Patrol, are you not?”Future Gohan glares at her, but starts to move away, motioning for you to follow. ‘Basilea’s shown up several times in my timeline. We never really learned much about her, but she looked like this a few years ago relative to me... I think when I was 10. Never gives us the full story on who she really is, all I know is that she’s allied with and I think related to Towa in some way. But... I have no idea what she’s actually planning. Seems like she’s here to keep some part of the timeline intact, if what she mentions is true.’‘Okay so... she’s from the future?’ you ask him telepathically, approaching Goku. This is starting to make your head spin.‘I’ve seen her in the future. I don’t know when or even where she’s originally from. On the plus side, this might make our job a bit easier.’‘You gonna keep an eye on her?’‘As best I can.’Goku looks at you, smiling. “Eh, worth a shot, right Maple?”You hug him tight. “A for effort.”“Thanks. Guess it’s up to Vegeta now.”(cont.)
>>1903727Raditz sits down with him as you notice cameras start to descend from the ceiling, all focused on Ozotto. Floating up above the ground as Vegeta stands before him, he makes an announcement. “Earthlings, hello again! I hope you all are seeing this clearly, because the day you all have been waiting for has finally arrived! The Ozotto Games are about to begin, and it seems that the first challenger has stepped up to make his challenge.”“Only challenger, monster.” Vegeta repeats.“Haha, confident isn’t he? And he has every right to be confident, you all might know him as the fighter that came in second in the last Tenkaichi Budokai! This monkey prince from another world lost to one of your own, but looks like he’s come here to make up for lost time. Let’s just hope he doesn’t try to blow up your planet again; I’d hate to miss out on my fun after this game is over.”His eye twitches. “You delay the inevitable. I will crush you, Ozotto.”The monster’s grin grows. “Famous last words. Well, as a reminder of the rules... there are no out-of-bounds in this Tournament. The only way to lose is to forfeit, or to rendered... incapable of fighting. This is one-on-one, single elimination, and will continue until there are no challengers left. The fate of this planet hangs in the balance. LET THE OZOTTO GAMES BEGIN!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shg10Adc_VA>A. Cheer for Vegeta!>B. Stay silent, you need to focus on observing how this goes down>C. Prepare to help him, just in case>D. Something else?
>>1903729>A. Cheer for Vegeta!>Try to be serious about it though, being nice just makes him angry. Maybe just say not to underestimate him.
>>1903739Alternatively "Overconfidence can get you killed"
>>1903744"Stay on your toes"?
>>1903747He'd just mock us for that, if he could spit it out between getting punched in the face.
>>1903729https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woHtuw_xtcc“You can do it, Vegeta!” you shout out in a cheer. “But be careful, he’s got some tricks up his sleeve!”“Tricks won’t save him from me.” Vegeta states confidently. “HrrrraaaaaaaAAAAAHHH!” His golden aura flares around his body as he powers up, reaching his full power quite quickly. Vegeta takes a fighting stance, then dashes towards Ozotto, bringing his arm back, but feinting into a kick directed at the Super Monster’s gut.Ozotto blocks it with his tail, then headbutts Vegeta, sending the Saiyan back. He pursues, only for Vegeta, arm still pulled back, to charge up Ki into it. Ah, that one-handed Kamehameha mimic. He thrusts it forward and blasts at Ozotto, the demon putting up a small barrier to shield himself, but a good amount of the blast goes through, Vegeta getting his first solid hit in. He tries to pursue Ozotto, unleashing a flurry of punches at the monster, Ozotto managing to block them... and while that blast did connect, it didn’t do as much damage as you think Vegeta would have liked it to do.Vegeta tries to grab the monster by the horns... only for them to disappear. To everyone’s shock, Ozotto shapeshifts from his large, normal form into... a mirror of Vegeta. He headbutts again, knocking Vegeta off-balance, then follows it up with a knee to the Saiyan’s gut. Vegeta falls down hard, Ozotto returning to normal and stomping on his gut as Vegeta bounces slightly from the sheer force of the impact.(cont.)
>>1903800Vegeta tries to fire another Ki blast in close range, but Ozotto shapeshifts again, using the change in size to avoid Vegeta’s attack and back away. “I can see why you like this form, little monkey. It’s quite quick, easy to move around in.” the Majin comments in perfect imitation of Vegeta’s voice. “Shame about the one using it, though.”“Don’t you mock me, monster!” Vegeta roars, flying at Ozotto at full speed, trying to land a dropkick... and Ozotto dodging out of the way, grabbing Vegeta’s leg and flinging him down against the ground.Ozotto-Vegeta then holds out his hand, flying up slightly. “You really do need more creative names for your techniques, though. I mean, what, you really call this-”“BIG BANG ATTACK!” Vegeta shouts, quickly firing a powerful Ki blast before Ozotto can, the very same one the Majin seemed to be attempting to mimic. The explosion shakes the room, a strong shockwave coming from the attack making contact. Vegeta pants slightly, standing up. “Haa... haah... told you not to mock me.”The smoke around where the attack connected starts to disappear... and Ozotto isn’t there. No, that couldn’t be it... he’s not out yet. You try to sense around for him. Where could he have vanished to? ...Wait, you start to feel a Ki signature far above you. It’s growing stronger. You look up into the open roof and-“...Are those sparks?” Raditz asks.(cont.)
>>1903804“Oh no.” your brother exclaims. “VEGETA, WATCH OU-!”“RAIO-KEN!” a voice above you all declares... Chuu Lee’s.The Saiyan prince tries to dodge, but like a streak of lightning Ozotto in the form of your former pupil dashes down at him and kicks him in the jaw. With as much of the gained momentum from the technique still in his possession, Ozotto returns to normal... and stabs Vegeta in the leg with his tail.“GGHHRAAAAHHH!” he yells out in pain, trying to grab Ozotto’s tail... and just barely missing, stumbling to all fours.“Hooooh. You know what, that did give me a bit of a scare. You anticipated that, didn’t you? Haha, so you DO put that tactical mind to good use. Shame that you still can’t beat...” He changes back into Chuu Lee again. “...This form, though.”Even with blood dripping from the hole in his leg, Vegeta still manages to fling himself at Ozotto, pulling his arms back, eyes filled with rage. At point-blank range, Vegeta stops himself and brings his hands forward, yelling out, “FINAL! FL-!”But Ozotto ducks under him, changing back to his normal form... and stabbing him in the gut with his horn, breaking the armor at his gut. The Ki that started to build up in Vegeta’s hands dissipate, with the Saiyan just barely having the strength to push himself off the Majin’s horn, bleeding from both his gut and his leg now.“That was a close one. A moment quicker and you might have gotten me.” Ozotto praises.“Sh... sh-shut... shut up...” Vegeta coughs out defiantly, clenching his gut.“F-father, you’re going to bleed out like this!” Bra shouts.“What’ll it be, little prince? You ready to throw in the towel?” Ozotto asks him, walking forward slowly.Vegeta...>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>1903812Well damn, guess some things never change, but still, poor Veggie. Good times, Kato. Was wondering when Ozotto would show off his shapeshifting in battle, but damn, right in the pride.
>>1903812Always Kato. This is going to be interesting.
I'm surprised Ozotto didn't use Maple's form to beat Geets...
>>1904188Its not over yet
>>1904188...What if he can't?Dunno exactly how his shapeshifting powers work, but I do recall him having trouble mind reading Maple and I think Tien, too. Maybe he can only shapeshift, or at least shapeshift and use other people's techniques, when he can read people's minds.
>>1904007Hate everything about the new OC, but that's solid gold.
We should get a dragon tattoo on our back.
>>1905262I've figured out how we can solve needing to keep our guard up.Oh no. Wait.Kato says no tattoos for Maple...
>>1903832>>1904022Glad to hear!>>1904007Still going to be very interested in how this plays out.>>1904188>>1904256>>1904642Stop reading my notes.Okay, we're back!>>1903812https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95hzQGiKiEgVegeta coughs again as Ozotto walks towards him. His strength is fading... but he still refuses to back down. “As long as I draw breath, as long as my pride remains, I will never back down to another fool who thinks himself an unstoppable tyrant!” Power builds in his spare hand as he covers the wound in his chest, blood still dripping flowing from both it and the wound and his leg. “You won’t be the first I put down. You won’t be the last. YOUR LIFE ENDS HERE, OZOTTO!”Ozotto floats up slightly, smirking. “So you claim. But is it truly enough to-”Vegeta fires a blast at Ozotto, the Majin dodging it as it flies past his head... but you realize that it’s no normal Ki blast. You quickly cover Gohan and Peppa’s eyes. “GOKU, RADITZ, CLOSE YOUR EYES!”The two of them quickly shut their eyes hard, your son’s counterpart from the future doing the same as Nappa chuckles, looking away. “Classic.”“BURST OPEN AND MIX!” Vegeta roars.Ozotto stares in surprise as Vegeta begins to grow, first gaining brown fur where his skin is exposed. Surprisingly, while his wound is still present, there is a bit of it that seems to heal. And as Vegeta’s size seems to reach its maximum, the brown hair changes to a golden blonde, the little remaining covering of the arena bring flung apart as the Saiyan stands tall.“...You truly are full of surprises, little monkey.” Ozotto declares.Bra seems to look away, shaking her head. “Father...”Before you can ask what’s wrong, you notice Vegeta’s power fluctuate drastically; the normal boost to his strength in this form seems drastically lower than what it should be, and it’s shrinking more and more.>A. Try to throw Vegeta a Senzu, just in case!>B. Bra, what’s wrong?>C. He needs to finish this quick, while he still has the chance!>D. Something else?
>>1905921>D. Vegeta, be very careful!
>>1905921>The only way to lose is to forfeit, or to rendered... incapable of fighting. >This is one-on-one, single elimination, and will continue until there are no challengers left. So technically providing support isn't against the rules as long as we're not actually fighting.If Ozotto can feed off of the misery of all the people around here, we can cut him off from that and support Geets....Samma Ajiva + Samma Vaca
>>1905921...Holy shit. Didn't see this coming.>B.
>>1905946We could do that, hypothetically, but only in a world where Vegeta had ever done something likable.
>>1905949Plus he'd just be upset if we help him.
>>1905951Huh, yeah, you're right. That's a point towards supporting him there.
>>1905949>>1905951>>1905961Yeah. Second thought. Nix the support idea.priiiiiiide and all that...
>>1905921>D. Samma Ditthi on Geet's. What's his game plan. If he could change the the power ball into a lunar siren, he'd probably win. Could we telepathically instruct him how to do it?
>>1905921>A. Try to throw Vegeta a Senzu, just in case!>B. Bra, what’s wrong?>>1905946Also mention this, if he protests.
>>1905965Hmm fff, point. Forget A here>>1905989Is there a way we can help that he wouldn't notice?
>>1905921>BLet's not interfere for Vegeta
>>1905921“Don’t overdo it, Vegeta! Be careful!” you shout out, looking to Bra next. “What’s wrong? And... how did he do this?”She looks down. “He tried this twice while we trained together, used the technique to transform while already a Super Saiyan. First time, he couldn’t handle, the Blutz Waves just weren’t enough. Second time... well, he figured out how to make it emmit more Blutz Waves, but...”Vegeta’s strength keeps dropping. His body can’t handle this much power, and with the wounds he’s sustained... You reach for one of your Senzu, but it dawns upon you that he’ll just refuse it anyway. Vegeta swings his massive fist at Ozotto, the Majin barely dodging out of the way in time. You also notice the Power Ball has dissipated, apparently expending all its Blutz Waves in order to transform Vegeta like this. Agh, if he could launch another, maybe he could turn it into a Lunar Siren with your help, but he might refuse that too...Breathing out “Samma Ditthi,” you sense for Vegeta’s motives on this. It seems he... he’s doing this out of desparation. He’s wagering everything on being able to do enough damage to Ozotto before running out of strength. His mouth glows a brilliant blue, Ozotto flying up and trying to outlast Vegeta. It’s going to be close...“You can’t keep this up for long you dumb monkey!” the Super Monster announces, dodging Vegeta’s fist again. “What do you hope to accomplish by-” The long, golden tail of the great ape manages to snag Ozotto’s leg; the punch was a distraction.“I’LL SEE YOU DIE BY MY HANDS!” Vegeta roars, Ki building up in his mouth again. A brilliant blue beam blasts forth, connecting with Ozotto right as he manages to shake free of Vegeta’s tail... and right as the bright color fades from it. Ozotto is blasted back, but Vegeta’s out of juice. The Oozaru falls to his knees, back to normal. So close...(cont.)
>>1906153Ozotto flies back, clearly damaged, but having taken nowhere near the amount needed to stop him. “That trick was exceptionally impressive. If you were just a little quicker, if you were able to hold out just a little longer... well, who knows? I might not be around to do this!” The Majin grabs Vegeta’s tail and pulls the massive monkey up into the air, twirling him around for a bit before flinging him away... shapeshifting back into Vegeta for just a brief moment, firing an explosive Ki blast. “Sorry to see you go, little monkey prince. At the very least, your skills were worth witnessing.”“FATHER!” Bra screams out.You close your eyes as you feel Vegeta’s Ki start to drop. He’s... wait, wait no, he’s still alive! Just barely clinging on to life! Ozotto raises an eyebrow. “...That should have been enough to finish him. Guess I underestimated that form’s durability. No matter.” He changes back to normal, preparing one more Ki blast.“That’s enough!” Piccolo shouts at Ozotto. “He’s not able to fight you anymore. I take that satisfies your rule, doesn’t it?”Ozotto holds out his hand, Ki still building in it... but with a smile, lowers it. “I believe it does.” A camera floats up towards him. “Quite a thrilling battle, wasn’t it, Earthlings? Your Tournament’s runner up fought admirably, but in the end... seems he did what he does best. That’s one challenger down... who will step up to challenge me next?” The cameras turn to face your group as Bra and Nappa head off, Peppa giving the blue-haired girl a Senzu Bean. “The slugman wanted to butt in... will it be him? Or, perhaps, it’ll be one of your actual Champions? Goku, Maple, Chuu Lee! Come now, I’ve been waiting for quite some time to face any of you. Ah, but we can’t forget the other little prince...”Piccolo stands... but so does Tien. The Namekian looks over to the Triclops. “You seem confident. You willing to take him on next?”“I am. Janken for it?” he asks confidently.>A. Go over to Vegeta, see if you might need to heal him before he can even take the Senzu>B. Join in with Tien and Piccolo, you wanna try your shot at Ozotto now>C. No, not yet. Gonna need to keep observing Ozotto. Maybe these fights can slowly wear him down...>D. Something else?
>>1906163>C.>D. "Hey Monkey Boy, what do you think of Ozotto so far?"
>>1906163>D. Piccolo, be EXTREMELY careful! He has four hands to Janken with!
I doubt these fights are wearing him down mentally, probably gets a kick everytime he learns something new from doppelganging.
>>1906163“Monkey boy, what do you think of Ozotto so far?” you ask.“Hmm... he’s really clever.” Goku comments... eyes still closed.You hang your head. “You can open them now, monkey boy.”“Ah, eheheh. But, yeah, clever. He seems to have a lot skills he’s been wanting to try out, and that shapeshifting ability is really out there. Don’t think Oolong and Puar were able to ever do something like that, even on their best days.”“No, this is way more sophisticated than normal shapeshifting.” Yamcha comments. “He’s flawlessly performing techniques like he’s actually the people using them, even used the Raio-ken...”Goku nods. “Yeah. But at the same time, he’s not exactly fighting unfairly. Heh, getting really excited.”“Not going to give that a try yourself?” you ask him, nodding to Tien and Piccolo.“Not yet. But I think I’ve got a plan.” he says confidently.“Jan!” Piccolo starts.“Ken!” Tien continues.“Pon!” the two of them shout... with a third voice jumping in. Lapis. The three of them look down. Lapis picks Rock. Good, reliable Rock. Piccolo picked Rock as well. Good, reliable Rock. But Tien seems to have picked Paper.Lapis snaps his fingers, Chuu Lee and Lazuli’s glance of worry becoming sighs of relief, Chuu Lee... teleporting away for a moment, now sure that Lapis isn’t going to fight Ozotto. Launch stands up and walks to Tien, giving him a tight hug. He slowly walks down to the ring. “Triclops! Haha, so you’re ready to finally face me, monk? Oh how I have waited for this moment... you ready to face certain death?”Tien refuses to answer Ozotto, glancing at you. ‘Maple, if these fail, it might not work against him again. Were you planning on using the Mafuba against Ozotto?’>A. Nah, you’re good, Tien>B. Well... sort of...>C. Something else?
>>1906431>C. If I do, will you teach me Multi-form?
I don't think it's a matter of luck at all, Vegeta didn't roll. Meaning, there's some weakness or overreach of his that we have to puzzle out.
>>1906431‘Nah, you’re good. I’ve got my own plan. But... Tien?’ You flash him a thumb’s up. ‘Good luck.’‘Thank you, Maple.’“Playing the strong, silent type, are you?” Ozotto questions him, crossing his arms once more. “Shame, I was hoping for just a LITTLE banter.”“I’m not here to crack jokes.” Tien declares, taking the classic Crane stance. “I’m here to save the world.”“Oooh, now that’s a good one. Then let this second round BEGIN!”https://youtu.be/PbGE5tWJQhYTien stays where he stands, refusing to budge. Ozotto takes the initiative in response, dashing at him, a powerful kick aimed at knocking Tien off-balance as his opening move. Tien jumps above Ozotto, letting his aura flare around him, sparks flying as he brings out his full power. Ozotto next tries to get Tien with his tail, the triclops flipping over it and backing off as the flaring red of the Kaio-ken mixes with the sparking purple of the Raio-Ten.“So what exactly do you plan to do? You’re strong, but your strength doesn’t compare to Vegeta’s at this level. And you saw what happened to him, even with his strength he couldn’t compare to me.”Tien thrusts his palm forward in what looks like a strike, but he stops before connecting with Ozotto’s chest, a fierce but small Ki blast firing from it. It forces Ozotto back, though does very little in the way of damage. The Majin continues to chase after Tien as you see him grow two additional arms. Tien finally goes on the offensive, combining his Four Witches with the Machinegun Punch... and you sense some Magic added to it. Light Magic. Ozotto doesn’t attempt to tank the attacks, forcing himself to dodge as Tien’s flurry of blows surround him. The Majin backs off, bulding up energy in his tail. “So that’s your game, is it? Then let’s see how it fares against THIS!”A multicolored Ki blast flies from his tail, Tien dodging it by... using the Multiform at the last second and having both of himselves dodge away. The two Tiens then say in unison, “KAIO-KEN! TIMES TEN!”Even with the halved power the two of them have, both Tiens jump up leaps and bounds in strength, enough to catch Ozotto by surprise. And, to add to it, one Tien shouts out “Samma Vaca!” as he closes in on Ozotto... but it’s a feint, as the other one actually declares the technique. With the Majin’s power decreased, the two Tiens actually manage to inflict some real damage on him. Ozotto backs away, trying to regain his footing, both Tiens trying to circle around him, using speed and afterimages to keep him guessing.“Ha... hhaah... not bad, not bad at all.” Ozotto then shapeshifts one more time... to the image of Goku. He guards himself and builds up Ki. “But not enough!”(cont.)
>>1906605A powerful explosive wave blasts through around him, forcing both Tiens to jump up to avoid it. You and the rest of the spectators feel the shockwave of the attack push through the area. Eyes focusing back on the fight, you notice Ozotto chasing after the Tiens... with one stopping before the other, putting his hands to his face. “SOLAR FLARE!”With just a brief moment of foresight, you Clothes Beam as many pairs of Sunglasses on everyone as you can to protect their eyes. Ozotto, now in the form of Chi-chi, seems to have been caught by the technique. The Tien above the other flies down to the ground, bringing out a Capsule, as the one still in the air forms up the Spirit Bits, bombarding Ozotto with them. Launch cheers out for her husband. “Yeah, you can do this, Tien! You’ve almost got him!”Ozotto reverts back to his original form, the Tien below shouting out another Samma Vaca to try and depower the demon again. The one above seems ready. This is it. He brings his arms back. “This is the end, Majin Ozotto! MAFUBA!”The Spirit Bits herd Ozotto right in the path of the Evil Containment Wave, the Tien on the ground revealing a jar with a seal on it. He’s done it!...Why are one of the Spirit Bits approaching him? Wait... that’s not Tien’s!>A. Tien, he’s figured out your trick!>B. Knock it away with telekinesis!>C. Try to help Tien seal Ozotto!>D. Something else?
>>1906606>B.B, B, B!
>>1906606>>B. Knock it away with telekinesis!

>>1906606https://youtu.be/gkKje_TRFLkYou wave your arm at the Spirit Bit targeting the other Tien, telekinetically flinging it away. You’re not the only one that seemed to notice it, though. Your brother also spots one of the Spirit Bits, another aimed at Tien, and does the same as you. They both fire, but their shots only just miss him, and it seems it was clear that they were aiming for the Mafuba jar.Ozotto is caught by the powerful wave, Tien’s real Spirit Bits enhanced with Light Magic pelting the Majin as he’s drawn in, the winds carrying his form along them. “No! NO! NOOOOO!”“HAAAAAAAAAH!” Tien shouts out, flinging Ozotto down to the jar held by his copy. The demon’s form shifts several times as he screams in vain. It’s going to work!...Then the Tien on the ground seems to lose focus, his aura disappearing. He collapses, body fading away. The sheer stress of the Multiform technique and trying to handle this much power must have used up all his time. No, so close! If he just stayed a little longer...!Almost all of you feel like you’re going to jump out to try and catch it... but Launch is the one who actually does it. She powers up, a golden aura surrounding her, as she catches the Mafuba Jar. Ozotto’s form, back to normal, is focused into the jar, disappearing inside it. Launch caps it.It’s... it’s over.IT’S OVER!“TIEN, YOU DID IT!” Launch shouts triumphantly, holding up the jar.The triclops smiles softly down at her... and falls out of the sky.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70...

Did y’all have fun?
>>1906839This was a hard won victory, but victory here won't mean squat if we can't cement it. We could give the jar to King Kai? I dunno, what other place sounds secure against time traveling demons?
>>1906839TIEN FUCKING DID ITGOD DAAAAAMNFuck yes I had fun.
This makes up for Tien sucking hard ass in Super, right?
>>1906877This is like Tien actually beating Cell. Another non-Saiyan beating a major villain.
Poor Goku must be disappointed.
Also, let's tell the time patrol to toss that jar into the end of time, or some timeline that's about to disappear.
>>1906968Oh right, end of time won't work. We need plain old cease to existence.
>>1906856I wonder if we could melt him with the Ultra Divine Water. Though how we get it in there...hm.
>>1907040Making a corrupted solution out of the Ultra Divine Water and a Majin? Could be cool, will our skin turn green from drinking it?
>>1906839Always Kato. And damn, good job team. How pissed is Towa right now?
Wait, I know how to handle Ozotto! We Spirit Bomb him and the jar!
And this is when Towa comes in and fucks everything up...
>>1907219>inb4 masked broly shows up
So when Towa shows up with Broly we're going to accuse her of copying us by getting a saiyan boyfriend right?
>>1906839It's a good thing Piccolo guards his mind, or else we would have had to deal with a Reverse Mafuba. Man, I wish we would fight more people who are quick thinkers instead of people who are inherently strong from birth or design, their confidence lacks innovation.
>>1907304...We should probably learn the mafuba counter...
>>1907304Smarter people maybe know better than to pick fights with a squad of demigods, regardless of strength.
>>1907219>>1907255>Towa, Mira, Masked Broly show up>Gero tells 19 to hand over the jar like a good girl>Ghost Dad invadesHow many gods will we need to sacrifice to his goatly greatness?
>>1907401To be fair, this was a huge gamble, and that was not a low DC. Who knows how bad things could have gotten if we failed, or even critfailed like with Broly.
>>1907848>or even critfailed like with Broly.He's not a gun!.....h-he's...not a gun...
>>1907855Worse, he's a loose cannon, boy.
>>1906856>>1907108>>1906863Glad to hear!King Kai would panic if you brought the jar anywhere near him, but he might consider holding on to it for some time, just so he could hand it over to someone more experienced.Towa might not be as pissed as you think. You may have helped her.>>1907040>>1907043Would not be an easy thing to accomplish, and would be very, very bad if you fail.>>1906877Well, Tien did get a little lucky with this. Leave that up to the dice.>>1906958Just a little. He did want to fight Ozotto.>>1907180Miiiiight be harder to accomplish than you think.>>1907219>>1907255>>1907534Stop reading my notes!>>1907304It's why Tien was very secretive with his plan. He only had one shot with this.>>1907848Things would have been very different if you all failed. Hell, if even just Launch failed things could have turned out pretty bad.Anyway, sorry for that delay! We're back!>>1906839Tien crashes to the ground hard. Launch rushes to his side as you all start to feel his Ki disappear. No... no, damn it! You and Chi-chi leap out from the stands as Launch rushes to her husband. He’s... his life is fading fast.Out of the corner of your eye you notice 19 get up, staring down at you all. You only see her for a moment before you focus all your attention on Tien, but she seems... confused. As if she’s about to expect something to happen, but it’s not.You and Chi-chi turn him over. He’s... he’s not responding. Can’t even take in a Senzu. Chi-chi looks at you. “...Only one shot at this.”You nod.>Roll 1d20, best of five. DC is 17.

>>1908640I think dying counts as a flaw.
>>1908414https://youtu.be/ZqwAQXwlkggYou raise up as much power as you can, Chi-chi doing the same, your auras flaring up around you both. The two of you place your hands down on Tien, pouring your energies into him. “Come on, come on! You can make it through this!”You try a couple times giving a jolt to restart Tien’s heart, Chi-chi doing her best to keep his fading life force from disappearing. Launch stands above you both, fearful, not sure what to do as you try to keep Tien from dying. You finally give it your all, draining yourself to give Tien just enough to hold on to life. There’s a moment of silence.Then Tien’s hand twitches. He takes a clear breath, and you give him a Senzu Bean. That brings his strength back, but even with the Senzu he’s still completely exhausted. “...W-well... not going to do that again any time soon.”Launch helps him sit up, then kneels down and hugs him tight, letting out a soft sob into his shoulder. Chiaotzu leaps to him next, hugging Tien from behind. “Y-you big dummy...” Launch tells him in relief as she sobs, holding him as tight as she can. “You almost... you almost...”“I didn’t. Thanks to you two.” Tien states, looking to you and Chi-chi. “Though... without you, Launch, that might not have worked.”She looks at the sealed jar. “...It’s really over, isn’t it?”You all hear footsteps. You notice 19 walking over to Tien... a confused look still on her face, giving the occasional glance at the jar. Chiaotzu gulps slightly. You’re not really sure what she’s thinking. She seems... almost agitated.>A. Walk to 19. Tell her she’s safe now>B. Ask Launch for the jar>C. Ask Beelzebub to come down here, maybe he knows how to deal with Ozotto now>D. Something else?
>>1908700>A. Walk to 19. Tell her she’s safe now

>>1908700>C & A.
>>1908700“Beelzebub, guess you’d know how to handle this! Wanna come take this off our hands?” you ask the Prince of the Demon Realm.“Y-yeah...” he responds, trying not to sulk at you as he flies over from his seat.You slowly approach 19, Chiaotzu letting go of Tien and walking with you. You notice that she seems to be forcing herself to walk, giving Beelzebub and the jar glances. You give her a friendly smile. “19, it’s over. You’re safe now.”She gives you a blank stare. “...Majin Ozotto is still alive. You have not solved this crisis.”“Ozotto won’t be a threat to you, though.” Chiaotzu tells her. “You’re safe from him.”She again seems to force herself to take another step. Her arm twitches.>A. ...19, are you okay?>B. Try to walk her away from them>C. I know what you might be thinking. Are you sure it’s worth it?>D. Something else?
>>1908860>A. ...19, are you okay?>B. Try to walk her away from them

>>1908860https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4HjwjBs5TM“...19, are you okay?”She refuses to answer, taking another step. Chiaotzu stands in front of her. “You don’t have to do this.”You put your hand on her shoulder. “Look... I know it might be programming doing this. But programming is only a part of you. Gero might accept it. He might also think it’s a flaw you did this on your own. And even if you try... you might break the jar, set him free. He won’t be all that thankful, just ask Jaguar up there.” You take a step. “Come on, 19.”She refuses to budge, but you’ve at least stopped her. Her eyes move towards Kougeki, the Heran just... sitting there, hand on his chin, watching the scene unfold. Basilea too seems to have refused to move from her spot. “Perhaps it is what I want, programming aside. I-”Chiaotzu interrupts her. “And if it isn’t? Ozotto didn’t seem like he was lying when he said those things to you. All you have right now IS your programming. It might not allow you to think any other way. You’re thinking about this, you consider it an option, true. But... here you are. You’re hesitating, because you know the risks, and because... maybe you really don’t want to.” He holds out his arms. “In any case, I’m not going to let you hurt yourself.”19 raises her arm, charging a Ki blast. Everyone looks to her as an uneasy silence carries through the arena. You close your eyes and breathe out “Please.” ...19 lowers her arm. “Why do you insist on protecting me?”“Because I want you to see that you have a chance. That you’re more than your programming. And... because I think you know that, too.”The android girl stands stiff as a statue. She then... seems to go limp. You and Chiaotzu catch her. She... she’s unresponsive. She’s still active, but she’s not reacting to any stimuli. Pantea walks over to the three of you. “...I think she’s doing the only thing she can in this situation.” the purple-haired girl comments. “She’s forced herself to go into sleep mode, or something to that effect. It’s a contradiction in her programming, so... instead of directly disobeying, she’s refusing to run commands. Logical loophole.” Pantea smiles at Chiaotzu. “I think you got through to her.”(cont.)
>>1909319You all breathe a sigh of relief, Beelzebub walking back to Melee, Gola, and the older demon with them with the Mafuba jar in hand. “I’ll be taking this some place safe, you guys take care!”Basilea and Kougeki finally stand, the little demon looking down at Beelzebub. “Looks like my job here is complete. Here.” You notice her toss the Demon Prince some sort of orb. “Word of advice, if you truly do care for that princess, you might want to make sure she’s safe.”Beelzebub becomes flustered and confused. “W-what?! Hey, just who the hell are you anyway?! And what’s this-” Basilea leaves, flying off before she can give a response, Trunks and his brother looking to your son's older counterpart, nodding as he flies off after her. “WELL FINE, BUT DON’T THINK I DIDN’T NOTICE THE STENCH OF THAT TRAITOR ON YOU! TELL TOWA HER DAYS ARE NUMBERED!” he roars out at her. Out of the corner of your eye you spot Jaguar sneaking away from the ring, trying not to catch anyone’s notice. Mark grabs him by the collar and holds him up.Everything seems to have finally wrapped itself up nicely... except for one thing. Kougeki is still here. He enters the arena. “Well, that was a shitty fight if I ever saw one. You all are dishonorable little punks, at least the monkey didn’t allow you all to get in his way. But I guess my employer will be happy, so whatever. Savor your little victory, assholes, because I’m sure it’ll be short-lived.”Piccolo glares him down, standing up.>A. Ignore him, get 19 to Bulma’s>B. Beelzebub, hurry back to the Demon Realm before Towa tries something!>C. Try to chase after Basilea>D. Oh, excuse me, our world was in danger, we’re not going to sit back and let him tear through us one-by-one!>E. Something else?
>>1909325>You know, there's an arena right there. Only used for two fights. We could try to make the most of it.
>>1909325>A & BWe've won, let's not risk our victory.>>1909336Let's see if Piccolo wants to give Kougeki the fight he wants, we don't need to challenge him.
>>1909325>A. Ignore him, get 19 to Bulma’s>B. Beelzebub, hurry back to the Demon Realm before Towa tries something!
>>1909325“If you’re really so upset, the ring’s still here. Don’t think Jaguar would mind an exhibition match, given what he made us all go through, would he?” You direct a glare at the wide little man.“Dah! Gh... w-well... I, n-n-no, j-just... please don’t kill me!” he pleads, shaking in Mark’s hand.“Beelzebub, you’ve gotta get outta here, Towa might be plotting something.” you shout out next, tapping two fingers to your forehead. “19, let’s get you to Bulma.”Pantea grabs on to Chiaotzu’s arm, waving to Yamcha. “Heading back home, see you there, dad!”“You behave yourself, squirt.”Piccolo starts walking down the steps. “Maple’s right about the ring. If it’s a fight you want, it’s a fight you’ll get.”Kougeki smirks. “Another chance to kick your green ass? Who’d turn that down.”You lock on to Bulma’s Ki and teleport back to Capsule Corp, noticing her watching everything play out on television. She crosses her arms and looks over the unresponsive 19. “Well... at least she won’t try to kill us all if she wakes up again.”“Can you help her?” Chiaotzu asks.“‘Help’ is not exactly an easy way to put it...” she says, scratching her head. “It might entail complete reprogramming. Or at the very least giving her something that allows her to argue with the stuff Gero’s programmed into her. But... I can try.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70...

I feel like we all need a break given what we’ve been through.”“Heh, I’ll say.” you comment to her. “If Acer and I were just a little off, if Launch didn’t catch that jar in time...”“Is Piccolo gonna be okay with that Kougeki guy, though?” Pantea asks.“I’m sure he will.” Chiaotzu tells her.>A.

I could start by giving her the ability to actually refuse the hard-coded programming without doing...” she glances down at the android girl. “...this. Eventually though we’d need to develop something for her that’s specifically tailored to the soul inside her.”“Perhaps we could start by locating things like an inability to criticize Gero?” Pantea asks her mom. “Even if she does still think highly of Gero after that, she’d be aware of the option now.”“Good point!” Bulma praises, ruffling her daughter’s hair.“All right, I’m gonna head back there, just in case. Don’t think this all should take much longer. Piccolo’s got this in the bag.” you tell them with a smile, teleporting back to the arena.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hw8Dl2H9rAQAs you arrive next to Goku and the kids, you see Piccolo dodge a kick from Kougeki, a clear difference in power between the two, even with the Heran transformed. “Don’t get cocky just because you’ve gotten a little stronger!” Kougeki declares, aiming to deliver a hard roundhouse kick to the back of Piccolo’s head.The Namekian leaves behind an afterimage, appearing behind Kougeki. “It’s more than mere strength. I am not the same person you’ve faced before.”“Slug bastard, you think this is funny?!” The Heran brings his arms out, charging spheres of Ki in each of them. He brings them overhead, combining the spheres, then brings his hands down, blasting forth a strong beam of energy.Piccolo bats it upwards, placing two fingers to his forehead. “You’re the one who seemed to think the performance of my allies was a joke.

>>1912100>B. Ask Goku what’s wrong?>C. Check on if Tien’s still doing okay>D. Something else?"Don't get cocky Piccolo!"

>>1912100> brings his arms out, charging spheres of Ki in each of them. He brings them overhead, combining the spheres, then brings his hands down, blasting forth a strong beam of energy.Can we mimic this move or use it to enhance other moves like...Spirit Star?Or even suggest it to Vegeta. His Final Flash could be something like...the Final Atomic Shine from DB NA with this.
>>1912100You spot Tien sitting with Launch, still exhausted but thankfully still fine. “Glad you’re still holding up.”“Thanks to you and Chi-chi.” Tien comments.Next looking over to Goku, you tell him, “Not like you to be lost in thought like that. Something up?”“Eh... I dunno, it just feels strange.” Goku tells you.“What does?”He scratches his head. “Like there’s something we’ve missed. Ozotto’s taken care of, but... well, it doesn’t feel like it’s over yet.”“Ah, don’t worry, we’re in the clear. Earth’s safe.” Acer tells him.Out of the corner of your eye you notice someone approach Jaguar, Mark standing over him as he’s seated in his throne again. The person seems to be a scientist, and they don’t look all too happy. While you can’t really hear what they’re saying over Piccolo and Kougeki’s fight, a telepathic scan gives you an idea.‘How is it awake?’ Lord Jaguar seems to question. ‘It should have been put into stasis... well, nothing a bit more culture fluid can-’ The scientist tells him something else. You see his eyes widen, a gulp traveling down his chin. ‘I need to get out of here. I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE!’>A. You just had to jinx it, didn’t you, brobro?>B. Demand to know what Jaguar did>C. Ask the scientist what’s going on and how to stop it>D. Something else?
>>1912331>B. Demand to know what Jaguar did>C. Ask the scientist what’s going on and how to stop it>Samma Ditthi both of them.>D. Something else?>IT behind him and pick up Jaguar to give to the bio warrior who will ask for ID."Take me to him. Now."
>>1912331>A.Instant Transmission right in front of Jaguar>B.
The Cell larva somehow gets fed the mafuba jar with ozotto in it... Cellzoto
>>1912331You give Acer a little glare. “Had to jinx it, didn’t you, brobro?”“Eh? What do-” He notices the panicked Jaguar. “...Ah hell.”You teleport over to him. “What did you do?”The scientist sinks back a bit, Mark looking at them suspiciously. “N-nothing! Nothing! Everything was going fine!”“...Was?” Mark repeats.Jaguar stands up and attempts to walk away. “Well good show everyone, let’s all leave the island right now and not-”You grab him by the collar this time, crossing your arms and glaring at him, mumbling out “Samma Ditthi” at them. Seems... they didn’t listen. And now there’s a huge incident. “What. Did. You. Do?”Jaguar gulps. “W-well... I WAS going to get rid of that thing! We put it through stasis and were preparing to terminate it so it... you know...”“But you didn’t yet.” Your palm smacks across your face. “Lemme guess, you were going to do it after Ozotto was defeated, weren’t you?”“...Yes.”“W-well, the culture fluid should have rendered the creature inert. But it... seems to have activated itself.” the scientist comments.“How?”“If I knew that, I’d have stopped this thing! Look, we need to get out of here!” the scientist tells you.With Jaguar still in your hands, you look over to your friends. “Looks like we’ve still got some cleanup to do. Guys, let’s-”Warning sirens blare around you all. You hurry with Jaguar down to where you recall sensing the Cell clone before. The guard at the door smiles. “May I see your ID pl-”“OPEN THE DOOR!” you shout, pushing Jaguar in his face.“D-do what she says!” he shouts out in mild terror, frantically showing an ID card to it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHOgQr98OsQIt opens the door... and it’s dark, save for the red warning sirens flashing on the ceiling. There are a couple bodies on the floor. You... you sense SOMETHING in there, and while it feels like Cell... it’s also somehow different. Whatever it is, it’s not in what you assume to be the container for the creature. There are puddles of some sort of purple fluid on the floor, seem to be corrosive and-...One of the puddles just moved.>A. Get Jaguar out of here and regroup>B. Spirit Bits! Scout out with them!>C. Samma Ditthi!>D. Give it a clear warning, you don’t want to hurt it, but you’re not going to hold back if it attacks>E. Something else?
>>1912520Oh Tripitaka.We're fighting Bio-Cell.>A. Seal the door, evacuate the building. Go stop the fighting and tell Kougeki to warn Towa, we might have a Code: The Thing and or Flood level of problems here.>E. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCbfMkh940QIt's the only way to be sure.
Are the future kids still training? I doubt they expected this to be over so quickly, and we should give all three as much time as we can.
>>1912664Well, Bra's with Vegeta, Gohan went after Basilea, but I think Trunks and his brobro are still here.
>>1912520>A. Get Jaguar out of here and regroup>Warn the whole group via telepathy, we may have a battle royale on our hands.
>>1912520You promptly telepathically inform everyone of what’s going down, teleporting back to regroup. Kougeki ceases fighting Piccolo for a moment, as you try to make a plan. “Okay, this island? Needs to be evacuated, pronto! Jaguar, you gather up all your goons and start heading out of here.”“I can probably teleport some folks away.” Lapis comments.“Same here. We’d be able to speed things along.” Krillin adds. “Somebody needs to get Chuu Lee here to help too.”“But what exactly IS it?” Acer questions. “Is it just Cell again?”Everyone seems to look to the scientist. “If it’s started to take over the culture fluid somehow, it’s going to end up exponentially increasing its biomass, looking for more things to take in...”“So it’s like some kind of sludge monster?” Chi-chi asks aloud. “Is there anything you know of that can stop it?”“The culture fluid is supposed to harden in the presence of salt water, but... if it’s already at the point where it can move on its own, it might be able to avoid it.”“Might need to destroy the whole island. Doubt the Mafuba can seal it like it did with Ozotto.” Tien comments.“What about freezing it?” Chi-chi asks next.The scientist is confused. “F-freezing it?”“Would that work?”He shrugs. “Worth a shot. But the longer we stand around talking, the longer it’s going to have to reach the resivors of culture fluid.”“And it might be capable of fighting.” Piccolo adds. “...I doubt Towa would think highly of this stuff. Am I right, Kougeki?”...Aaaaand the Heran flips Piccolo off and flies away. “Deal with issue yourselves, assholes. I’ll be back another, slug. Don’t think this is over.”“Hrmn... guess we gotta split into groups.” Goku says, rubbing his chin.>A. I’ll help people escape, we need this island evacuated>B. Going to be support for anyone who’s fighting this stuff, healing and Senzus>C. I’ll be taking out as much of this stuff as I can, maybe we’ll find a way to get rid of it all>D. Gohan, Peppa, you two need to head away from here, got it?>E. Something else?
>>1912848>A & D.Kids need to stay back in case things go south.
>>1912848Piccolo, did you learn any water magic? If not. We could telekinetically bring some in from the surrounding oceanThen with wind magic users and the bansho fan, we make it rain salt water. so the bio-cell can't go outside. Then we go inside and spray the crap out of everything inside while we pull everyone out.Krillin, get Chuu Lee please. She'd be helpful for this.Burn it with ki, and don't touch BC. Cell drains life physically and it can possibly eat our ki blasts. We'll probably need to restrain it with telekinesis, if ice, fire, or salt water do not hit it. >E. Gohan, Peppa. We have a very important job for you. We need you to help keep the salt rain going outside with your magic, Think you can help everyone? Don't let it reach it's final form
>>1912848>>B. Going to be support for anyone who’s fighting this stuff, healing and Senzus>>C. I’ll be taking out as much of this stuff as I can, maybe we’ll find a way to get rid of it all>>E. Kids, I have an important task for you both. I need you two to watch from up above. If that thing gets out, blast the ocean and splash it with a giant wave, got it?
>>1912931I'll support that E too.
>>1912848“Okay, let’s see. I can definitely help with the evacuation efforts... we do need Chuu Lee though. Same time, might be best to try to give support when we can.” Your mind races for ideas as the sirens around you all keep blaring.“Starting on that now.” Lapis states, tapping a pair of fingers to his forehead.“Can’t let it get outside the area... don’t know how smart it is at this point, but we can’t take out chances.”Chi-chi brings out the Bansho fan. “Well, if it’s just keeping it in here, might not be too much trouble.”“Can’t underestimate it though.” Acer warns. “You mentioned it seemed corrosive?”“It should be focused on eating organic matter” the scientist states. “Dissolving it away so it doesn’t pose any kind of real risk.”“So that means staying away from it. Nobody let this stuff get on you, especially if Cell’s controlling it in any way. Cell was able to do that with regular people killing them by absorbing their bodies into him through a needle on the end of his tail.”You spot Goku shudder for a moment. “Man, this stuff sounds nasty.”“Maybe try not to fire Ki blasts at it, just in case.” Krillin comments, teleporting away as Chuu Lee arrives, Bra next to her, hanging her head.“...I’m sorry. You shouldn’t still have to be dealing with this.” the half-Saiyan girl sighs out.“If it’s anyone’s fault, sis, it’s his.” Trunks states, jabbing his thumb in the direction of Jaguar. “Now let’s clean up this mess.”“Magic might be key to this, so see if you can use it against this stuff” you recommend. “Gohan, Peppa?” you look to your kids. “You two need to head above here and watch for where this stuff might be going, keep away from it, maybe make some waves in the sea nearby to try and get it under control.”“Sure thing, mom!” Peppa shouts out, flying up. Gohan nods at you and follows after her, Videl looking to her dad, Mark agreeing to let her help them.(cont.)
>>1913099Everyone quickly gets to work with the evacuation first, with you, Chuu Lee, Krillin, and Lapis teleporting all around the place and getting the remaining staff out of here, noticing more and more of the liquid in the labs, flowing in some areas like strong streams. You try to direct people on where the largest concentrations are headed, but the more you keep up the rescue mission, the more you notice oddities in the fluid. Closer to where the Cell clone’s lab was, some blobs of the gunk have shades of green in them... and the greener parts seem to be forming into more solid structures, not just the viscious fluid like the rest.Upon trying to help Goku and Piccolo deal with a large flow of the material, more complicated chunks seem to emerge... and then you notice that this is indeed not just Cell. Nor is it just the culture fluid. As Piccolo pushes some of it back with what looks to be Water magic, you notice it form a large, distorted face... a face that smiles maliciously at you. A horrid mixture of the flowing fluid, what seems to be a badly mangled portion of Cell’s... and Ozotto’s smug mug.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70...

>>1915028He probably knew Jaguar was doing this all along. Probably saw this as insurance....Fuck. It's just like the Bioman.

Piccolo winces at it, covering his ears. Even Goku seems a little taken back by the thing. “That... can’t be good.”“Looks like you might get your wish, monkey boy.” you comment, noticing some of the liquid squirm and slither around you all. Voices seem to echo through the area, as if a hundred mouths were talking together, with a slight delay to them all giving it an eerie echo, as if the entire building is haunted by Ozotto’s spirit.“YOU...”“THOUGHT...”“IT...”“WOULD...”“BE...”“THAT...”“EASY?!”>A. ...Kinda?>B.

But just as easily as it seems dispatched, more flows in. You... spot a blue arm inside the mass, dissolving into it as it seems to twitch slightly. “Agh, there just seems to be no end to it!” Trunks shouts in frustration, his brother, to your surprise, using the same Water Magic that Piccolo was using to try and push it back.>A.

Going to check for any remaining civilians, keep in contact if you need me.”“Careful, Maple!” Goku tells you.You catch a glimpse of someone still deep inside the labs, quickly teleporting to rescue them. You find an elderly person in a white labcoat... frantically typing away at a computer? “No... no, not like this...”“HEY, YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE!” you holler at the man. A jolt of warning hits your mind, and you try to turn around, bringing up your Spirit Bits to defend yourself... but it’s too little, too late. A wave of energy blasts at you, coming from... a slowly solidifying, vaguely humanoid form of this monstrosity. You’re knocked down hard, the Ki blast not being enough to grievously injure you, but you’re still down.A mouth forms across its face, chunks of it looking like if Cell’s beak were made of ooze, the rest of it seeming like an oversized form of Ozotto’s lips. It walks towards you, hand raised. In its twisted, horrid voice, it tells you, “I knew that bait would catch one of you off-guard. And it seems he learned about some of the things this new ‘body’ can do. A tad too late, though.”The scientist falls to his knees as you try to push yourself up. “We’re done for... it’s the end of the world...”“W-what do you mean?”He slams his fist on the counter. “The culture fluid has mutated the original creature, and it’s all connected. It’s mixed itself in with the fluid completely. A few more minutes and it will be able to spread across the Earth...”“What about the weakness?” you ask, the Ozotto-Cell abomination distorting its arm slightly into a giant claw.“It will be able to fly away from the island soon. We can’t stop it, we, we’re all going to die...”“You all have done me wonders, this form will bring me possibilities I could never even dream of before. Now... how about you two join me in Perfe-”Chuu Lee teleports in and keeps the monster from finishing by firing her Shinku Kamehameha at it, blasting it back. She then grabs you and the scientist and gets you both to the beach, where you see Mark holding Jaguar, the scientist lady who reported to him, and the man’s cousin. “That was a close one, almost lost you, Maple.” The redheaded woman offers you a Senzu. “We got a plan?”>A. Take the Senzu>B. Refuse it, save it for later>C. Ozotto’s going to try and fly away, we need him completely contained and then eradicated before he can reach mainland>D.

Rolled 10, 18, 14, 13, 6 = 61 (5d20)>>1915509You take the Senzu, but pocket it, instead healing yourself and then rebuilding your Stamina and Ki reserves as you tell everyone, “Ozotto’s going to try and fly away, we need to keep him contained on this island and eradicated before he gets enough biomass to reach the mainland. Has everyone been evacuated?”“Mostly everyone, Lapis and Krillin got the last few people in there.” Chuu Lee tells you.Up above you notice Peppa charging a Kamehameha, firing it into the water a ways away. There’s some of the ooze that seems to have made its way out of the castle and was creeping down the beach. Well, at least she got it in time.“Kids are at least helping keep watch.” you comment. “Okay, we need to head back in there too before-”There’s an audible explosion from the castle, the ground rubling under you. You start to sense a stronger Ki signature deeper inside... no, not just one. Several. All connected in a way, but... it’s like Ozotto managed to make several “solid” bodies for himself. Chuu Lee hangs her head. “Things going from bad to worse very quickly.”“The explosion was neat Lapis and Lazuli!” you exclaim, trying to sense out where everyone is. Seems... the bodies are advancing on your friends. Damn it! There’s at least five of them, no, six... no, agh, they’re multiplying! You tap two fingers to your forehead... but before you can teleport in there, you get a flash of warning. This time you dodge it successfully, Chuu Lee just barely doing the same, as a beam shoots out from the building. You make sure you have the Samma Sankappa up; no more surprises like last time.A shambling, slow-moving body can be seen near the entrance of the castle, half of it looking like it’s about to collapse into a puddle, the rest trying to move towards you, charging another Ki blast.“Mark, get them out of here, quick!” you tell him, the man just barely dodging anothe Ki blast, this one aimed directly at him. A jolt of fear travels down your spine as you feel Yamcha’s Ki take a dip.>A. Force the thing back inside, Chuu Lee needs to help Yamcha>B. Go to Yamcha, Chuu Lee can handle that monster>C.

I’ll get this bastard.” Finally, you stop holding back your strength, reaching the full power of the Raio-Ten, and letting out a shout of “KAIO-KEN! TIMES FIVE!” The purples and reds of your aura blaze around you as you telekinetically grab the shambling figure, forming a barrier around yourself, sparks flying as you dash forward. The slime monster attempts to fire a beam at you again, but with how you’ve got a hold on it and with how much power you’ve got right now, it has no hope of hitting you successfully.You then bring out the Spirit Bits for added protection as you snap your fingers, letting the blaze of the Will ‘O Wisp burn away the dripping sludge of the monster. The sheer force of the explosion takes out a chunk of the entrance, but it does force the culture fluid back. You sense Piccolo using the Multiform, since there’s now three of them... and seems they’re all using the Kaio-ken, too, given their boost in strength. He’s doing well to push back the mass of fluid.“Any success, guys? I’m really hoping for some good news here.” you ask both aloud and telepathically.‘There seems to be a large mass of the monster deeper into the labs. If we can push back this culture fluid towards it, it might turn the tide.’ Piccolo responds to you.You sense Goku and Raditz fighting some of the bodies too, and seems like they’re having some luck. Heh, monkey boy really did get his wish after all. Acer and Chi-chi seem to be closest to you, and you can hear little explosions of flame and blasts of wind push things back. ‘It’s way tougher than it looks, but we do seem to be doing some damage to it. Maybe we can keep this up and starve it of bio-mass.’ your brother tells you.Well, it’s a start. But can’t let your guard down now, Ozotto’s not giving up without a fight!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~4:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>1916232Aw, done a little early? But yeah, definitely had fun, this isn't at all what I saw coming when we started, and it's only been getting crazier as we continue. This is awesome, Kato!
>>1916232Be honest, was this only going to happen or did you pull this out because of the anticlimax?
>>1916232Because I would.
>>1916256Just a little, but we'll be continuing tomorrow, for once. Planning on keeping this going all the way through Sunday, depending on what happens. And very glad to hear, thank you!>>1916268>>1916269So, like I mentioned before, I've had this planned out ever since y'all made your decision on the Cell clone. Partially as backup in case things went over a bit too smoothly, but mostly because it was something that I figured would make sense motivation-wise. Ozotto was never going to give up all that easily, especially with an escape route like that just a ways away from his arena. It's still not over yet, so don't expect things to be easy.
>>1916232What'd Yamcha run into? Did a random saibaman run into him? I'm guessing all the stuff is gathering to make second form Ozotto?
>>1916933 or something worse?
>>1916933...Oh no. We DID bring Yamcha. It's finally catching up with him.
>>1918079Well, Tien and Yamcha are both injured.Would both of them fusing make an okay Tiencha? He could provide support that the two can't in their current state.We've got enough senzus but even then...
>>1918104>Cellzotto uses them as bait to steal Senzus>Regenerates faster
>>1918150Let us learn from the our lesson in the pendulum room against King Vegeta.Never let the enemy have a bean.

Goku and the Time Patrollers have met up with Raditz, and they seem to have encountered one of these figures too... seems stronger than the others. Piccolo keeps pushing some back, while Lapis, Lazuli, and Krillin work together to try and keep the culture fluid contained.You can definitely sense something strong building up near the center of the building, though. That might be the core to it. Hrmn... doesn’t feel like Nappa or Vegeta are coming your way, and your son’s future counterpart might be on his way back. Hrmn... could go get Chiaotzu, he’s on his way but you could save him the trip.>A. Teleport to Chiaotzu, gotta start freezing this stuff>B. Try to see what the holdup is with Vegeta>C.

Rolled 5, 7, 9, 1, 16 = 38 (5d20)>>1919053You quickly teleport to Chiaotzu, finding him flying towards the island. Placing your hand on his shoulder, you say, “Sorry for leaving you behind back there, none of us really saw this coming.”“It’s fine, we got 19 to safety at least.”You get him back to the castle, getting to one of the Piccolos. He seems to bring up an orb or seawater, then flings it a blob of the fluid creeping towards him, solidifying it... but the chunks of flesh inside it seem to still be squirming. Piccolo fires Ki blasts at them, getting rid of them before they start to escape from the solidified mass. “It’s planning something.”Chiaotzu gets to work on his own, firing an Ice-boosted Dodonpa at some of the culture fluid deeper down the way. “Planning how?” he asks.“None of these things have been particuarly powerful. It’s way more capable than this, I can sense something way stronger much deeper down.”“Maybe it’s trying to distract us?” you postulate. “Ah, and while I’m here... Samma Kammanta!” you declare, boosting Piccolo’s Ki and Stamina back up. You teleport away to the next Piccolo clone, restoring him as well as you continue to talk. “Distracting us from a much bigger thing deeper towards the core.”“Might be possible.” Piccolo agrees, blasting at the culture fluid again. As you teleport one more time, doing the same for another clone, he says, “Ozotto could be trying to force us to expend our energy out here, pick us off when we start to tire.”“Not gonna happen while I’m on this!” Okay, one more! This Piccolo’s closer to the Saiyans, firing out a number of Ki blasts at a figure shaped in twisted mockery of Cell, blasting it apart as quickly as he can, chunks of the horrid slimy humanoid splattering across the walls. “We can keep this up all day. We’re pushing it back, aren’t we?”“Seems like it, but we shouldn’t-”(cont.)
Rolled 18, 12, 7, 20, 5 = 62 (5d20)>>1919618The two of you dodge out of the way of an incoming attack, a spinning yellow- ...is that a Destructo Disk?! You manage to get out of the way in time, but it grazes Piccolo’s arm, only barely missing cutting it off entirely. Taking a defensive stance, you and Piccolo look down at where it came from. You see a smaller figure form out of the culture fluid, part of it looking like it’s Ozotto, part of it resembling Cell, but the rest seeming like it’s trying to take the shape of... Krillin?It brings its hand up again, forming another Destructo Disk, letting out a horrid, painful shriek as it opens its “mouth” halfway down to the floor. Piccolo winces again, covering his ears and firing a pair of beams from his eyes at it; still easily dispatched, but... gods, what WAS that? As it crumbles into a formless mass, it lets out another shriek, even louder this time...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dfb_n7wjb5k>A. Guys, it’s trying to take the shape of us!

Rolled 15, 9, 11, 6, 9 = 50 (5d20)>>1919634You head out to the sea, reaching Tien and Yamcha as they try to rest up, gathering up some of the ocean water with your telekinesis. “Guys, you doing okay?”Tien nods, standing up. “Yeah, we’ll head in there soon.”Launch frowns in concern. “You sure? If you end up doing something like that again...”“Don’t worry, we’ve got enough people around here. Yamcha, you up for it too?”He dusts himself off, flashing a thumb’s up. “Yeah, let’s do this.”You start to fly over with a large chunk of the water, the castle now erupting with the purple culture fluid. But... not as many green or red splotches from it. Must still be concentrated inside. You can sense that the Saiyans have taken some damage, but Chuu Lee’s over to them quickly to help them recover. Krillin and his students keep up the pressure, not backing down as it tries to advance. Noticing some of the fluid outside start to lift up, you get to work flinging the ocean water at it, solidifying the culture fluid, Tien, Yamcha, and Launch blasting at it to try and break it apart.You head in, still with a good amount of water behind you, blasting at any flows of the liquid that you see. However, the closer you get to the core, the more ferocious the material starts to behave. You’re cut off from the three fighters following you as a trio of horribly malformed mimics of Cell seem to break through the solidified chunks of culture fluid, forcing them to engage the monsters, but you do manage to meet up with Acer and Chi-chi, the three of you spotting a hollowed out chunk of the mountain where you sense the strongest concentration of Ki.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snqzP216gBYThe three of you spot what looks to be a giant, pulsating orb of culture fluid slowly lifting up from the ground. You attempt to fling the rest of the water at it, but a giant arm justs out of the orb, launching a sweeping Ki attack at you all. It’s enough to blast away the water, but your barrier and Spirit Bits keep it from doing any major damage to you. Chi-chi’s Spirit Bits also give her a barrier against the attack, but it catches Acer off-guard, knocking him away. He stops himself before falling into the culture fluid, but you all can sense the thing growing stronger. Way stronger... crap, whatever is inside there is already close to what you felt Ozotto’s power to be, if not higher.>A. Unleash hell! Blast it as hard as you can!>B. Wait for everyone else to arrive, you need to make sure you have the firepower to take this down>C. Try to bring in some more water, it must be using the culture fluid to gain its strength!>D.

>>1920113https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkNZaC3nNYI“Everyone, let’s give this thing all we have!” you declare, telepathically informing everyone what’s going on, bringing yout hands together. You have your Spirit Bits swirl around in front of you, forming an Amplify gate, as you start charging your Ki. No holding back, got to end this once and for all!Acer and Chi-chi look to each other, nodding as Chi-chi does the same with her Spirit Bits, forming an Amplify gate in front of her and your brother as they charge up a pair of Kamehamehas together. Yamcha, Tien, and Launch finally make it through, with Yamcha forming his Spirit Ball in one hand while Charging Ki in the other. Tien places his hands together, as does Launch, the two of them preparing to fire off a pair of Tri-Beams.The pulsing, flowing sphere seems to sprout another arm... and another... and another, making four in total. Yamcha flings his Spirit Ball at them, smacking each arm as it seems to build up Ki. Yamcha brings his other hand forward, while you shout out, “SAMMA VACA!” at the monstrosity.That dents it... but not nearly as much as when Tien used it against Ozotto. Tien takes a deep breath as you all continue to charge your attacks, another group of Spirit Bits forming a gate in front of him and Launch, then shouts out, "SAMMA SAMADHI!”You, and everyone around you feel a sudden jolt of power, your Ki rising even higher than before. Goku finally arrives, standing beside you, giving a smile as you see him build up Ki into his fist. “I’ve only got one shot with this. So let’s give him everything we’ve got!”“All right, monkey boy! FULL POWER! KAIO-KEN TIMES... SEVEN!” Your blazing red and sparking purple auras mix, the reds of the Kaio-ken around you all almost overpowering the gold of Goku’s aura... until you see a hint of red from him as well as he tries to focus himself. You bring your hands back. “DENJIN!”“LOVE-LOVE!” Acer and Chi-chi shout out.“TRI-BEAM!” Tien and Launch add.“BURNING RIFLE!” Yamcha declares.“KAMEHAMEHAAAAA!”(cont.)
>>1920818Your beam travels down the Amplify gate, Acer and Chi-chi’s combined attack doing the same, as do Tien and Launch’s, with Yamcha pelting the monster with both the Spirit Ball and his beam taking shots at the mass of ooze and flesh. But... the four arms then return fire, trying to match your attacks. You even see cruel, horrid mockeries of your friends start to sprout from the ooze surrounding the creature, also returning fire.A clash of Ki builds around you all, and even with the boost to your power... you feel this thing start to push back against you. You pour your Ki into your attack, trying to overcome it... but it just won’t budge. Come on... damn it, come on. You spot Goku still trying to focus himself, the golden aura around him giving off jolts of red. Eventually... you just can’t give any more power to this. Tien and Launch try to hammer it with their Tri-Beams, and while the attacks blast off chunks of the culture fluid, it’s... it’s not enough.However, Acer and Chi-chi make a breakthrough! Giving it everything they have, their combined Kamehameha overtakes one of the arms and blasts it off! A thunderous boom fills the area as all the energy seems to explode around you. And at this moment, Goku shouts out...“SUPER KAIO-KEN!”Tremendous power seems to just erupt from his body as the Kaio-Ken aura overtakes the gold of Super Saiyan, Goku finally dashing forth and roaring out, “DRAGON... FIIIIIIIIST!”A golden dragon made of Ki erupting from his arm jetting forth, bathed in red, flame-like power, smashing into the sphere of culture fluid. All this power blasts apart the central lab area, blinding you all momentarily as you feel the monster’s Ki finally decrease. Finally... finally it’s over...(cont.)
>>1920822No. No, no no no... The dust starts to clear, and you see a solid form of something inside it, clearly still alive, even with most of the culture fluid destroyed. And... oh gods, no, no...Goku coughs blood, the gold in his hair fading back to black, his outstretched arm thrust forth where a chunk of mass is missing from the abomination... but with Ozotto’s tail puncturing his chest, seemingly sucking energy out from him. “Haaa... hhhhaaahh... that... that was a close one... you almost got this body’s nucleus...” a distorted version of Ozotto’s voice praises him, a horrid eye in the center of its bloated chest looking at Goku. “I hope I made this clear enough for you... I was never going to ‘join your side.’ You especially, Son Goku. Shame it had to end this way instead of honorable combat like you wanted, but... this is what you get when your wife doesn’t play by my rules.” he declares mockingly, flinging Goku at you.You catch him... and he’s limp. Goku... Goku no... no not like this... Your body trembles in fear. He can’t... he can’t be... You try to hold him tight, try to heal his injury, tears filling your eyes. “G-Goku... please, please PLEASE! STAY WITH US! YOU HAVE TO!”Ozotto’s mocking laughter in his distorted, horrid voice echoes through the area. “He’s dead. Don’t waste your energy on him. Worry about your own safety, now. Hmmm... who should I go for next?”Rage starts to fill your heart. Tears streaming down your face, you feel your strength build with righteous fury. But then... you sense something above you. Something that just... snaps. You look up to Gohan and Peppa. “D-dad...”Ozotto looks upward, noticing it too.“Mmn?”“You... y-you... YOU HURT MY DAAAAAAAAAD!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=px8aiW3GEME>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70...

You feel the last bits of life in Goku’s body start to fade away. You have to save him, Maple... you have to... but, you can’t turn away from what you notice above you. Peppa’s aura blazes around her, sparks flying out from it, her hair standing up straighter as she looks down at Ozotto with a righteous fury in her eyes, letting out a primal roar that echoes through the area.There’s a slight twitch from Ozotto. “Oh I’ll have none of THIS today. DIE, BRAT!”A wave of energy blasts out of one of his arms, but Peppa easily bats it aside. “YOU... HURT... MY... DAAAAAAAAD!” she roars, aura blazing around her body.>A. Maple, you need to try to heal Goku, do it as quickly as you can>B. PEPPA SMASH!>C. Gohan... you feel this rage tooPick one.

He... he’s going to hurt everyone! You have to stop him! YOU WILL STOP HIM!Ozotto swings his tail at you, trying to do the same to you, but your smaller size, greater speed, and sheer power, fueled by vengeful fury, not only allows you to dodge it, you counter it by slashing down with your own tail... breaking the monster’s in half with the sheer force of your attack, to the shock of everyone. Ozotto tries to smash his hands together on you, but you build up Ki and Magic into each fist, them smash them out, countering each arm with a Rasenken.Tears flow from your eyes... flow upwards with your blazing aura. You stare down the monster and demand, “Give him back... GIVE HIM BACK!”Even with his increased size, Ozotto displays surprising agility, backing away from you, his body trying to recover from the damage he sustained from both the attacks before and your ferocious assault. Ozotto tries to bring all four of his arms upwards. “You... YOU DARE?!” he asks, building up multicolored Ki blasts in each of his hands.You give your response. Before he can launch any of the Ki blasts, you smash your fist into his face, knocking the massive form of Ozotto back. He still attempts to fire one of his Ki blasts at you, but you dispatch it easily with a Wind-Boosted Geist Magnum, pulling out your Power Pole and readying yourself for another attack.“Brat, do not think this boost in strength will help you, you have yet to-”“SHINE!”Ozotto looks up again. You didn’t really feel it before, but now you start to feel it too. Not quite as strong as you... but all the same, it’s a power just like yours.“SPAAAAAAAARK!”Gohan bolts down at Ozotto like a streak of lightning, crashing through his body and taking off a huge chunk of the monster’s torso, even removing one of the arms.

He again tries to grapple the two of you, but you and Gohan bat his arms away, you extending your Power Pole and smacking the arms away. Gohan starts firing a barrage of Geist Magnums, each of them boosted with Lightning, as he flies back to you.Ozotto attempts to pull back more of the culture fluid, but all the Piccolos that were fighting before manage to hold it off, at the cost of the clones running out of strength and disappearing. You then bring the Power Pole close to you, and take aim at the eye in Ozotto’s chest. “POWER POLE, EXTEND!” you shout out, jolting the magic staff down at the monster, piercing the eye before it’s able to grab it away. You bring the monster up with a mighty swing, Gohan battering it with his Shinespark, finally coming back to you.You have the rest of the Power Pole dig into the ground as you fling Ozotto into the air.

NO... YOU BRATS, YOU’VE DONE IT NOW! I’LL JUST TAKE OUT YOUR WHOLE PLANET!” All four clasp their hands together, but they tremble as this... horrid ooze drips from the monster’s central eye.“HAAAAAA...”“MEEEEEEEEE...”“DIE ALONG WITH THIS WORLD, EARTHLINGS!” Ozotto declares in fury, launching a massive attack at the both of you. He... he is NOT bluffing. The power is greater than you’ve ever felt before. He could destroy the whole world with this one attack, maybe the take out the entire sun.You and Gohan thrust your arms forward. You will NOT let that happen. “HHHHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!”(cont.)
>>1924489The combined beams clash in midair, seemingly equal in strength... but only for a moment. Ozotto’s eyes all go wide. “No... NO! NO!” Structures grow on his flesh, apparently him trying to escape through shapeshifting, but his body’s just not able to budge with the Power Pole stabbed through his chest. “IT CAN’T END LIKE THIS!”“HHRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!!!” you roar out, your spiraling beam mixing with Gohan’s as the two attacks blast through Ozotto’s. The sky itself seems to light up with the amount of raw power the two of you push out, engulfing the Super Monster completely as it travels into space, just barely missing the crescent moon, from the looks of things.You both look up. The Power Pole is all that remains, parted clouds and even a gulf in the waves from where your beams blasted out. You... you did it. Your whole body is shaking. You can’t sense Ozotto anymore. He’s gone for good. Your brother quickly hugs you, shaking too. “W-we did it... sis...” he says in a sobbing voice. “Dad... dad’s...”>A. Hug him back>B. Take a moment to just... let it all out>C. Head back down to mom...>D. Something else?
>>1924493>A. Hug him back>B. Take a moment to just... let it all out
>>1924493>A. Hug him back>D. "I hope he doesn't come back as Ghostzotto...maybe he'll come back as something nice next time...">B.
>>1924499Hmm... not feeling that comment, given the circumstances.
>>1924493You hug your brother tight. Ozotto’s gone. He’s... he’s really gone. You start to sob too... no. No, you can just let it all out. “DAAAAAAAD!” Gohan’s aura disappears as he calms down a bit, still crying into your shoulder. You two beat him... but... if you were just a little quicker... if you just... if you just...After a couple minutes you feel Videl’s hand on your shoulder. You look to her, sobbing still, but you’ve gotten some of it out of your system. She gives you a soft, warm smile... then nods down to the ground. You see your mom, passed out, apparently having exhausted herself trying to do something.She’s... she’s right next to your dad, blood on his outfit, a breeze sweeping over him. You start to float downwards... and you notice that while his clothes are still bloodied, his... his chest rises. He’s breathing. HE’S BREATHING!>A. Run over to him and hug him!>B. Mom, mom, moooom wake up! Wake up! Dad... dad’s...!>C. Just... just stare there. Is this real?>D. Something else?
>>1924573>A. Run over to him and hug him!>B.>D. "G-gohan, d-do something!"
>>1924573>A & BMaple pulled through?
>>1924573>A. Run over to him and hug him!
>>1924573https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWJMVo8ECsMYou run over to your dad, your sobs turning to joyful laughter. He’s alive! Dad’s alive! You almost tackle a hug at him, your father... barely reacting beyond a nudge. “Mom! Mom! Wake up, dad’s... dad’s alive! He... h-he... G-Gohan, dad’s alive!”Your brother can barely believe it. But he just as readily jumps over to your dad, hugging him tight. You then feel Uncle Acer pull the two of you off him. “Let him rest, kids.”“B-but Uncle, he’s... he’s alive! Mom! ...Mom what’s wrong?”“Exhausted herself trying to heal him. Between the two of them, myself, your uncle, Piccolo, and Chuu Lee, we’ve only got four Senzu left.” Chi-chi tells you both, sounding quite exhausted herself. “Nearly killed Maple just trying to keep him alive...” she adds with a sigh. “Gohan, Peppa, don’t let your mom pull a stunt like that again. Scared ME half to death.”“S-sure, Auntie Chi-chi.” you laugh out a little.You notice Trunks and his brother try to help him up, while Ms. Bra helps up your mom. She smiles at you and Gohan, though. “...Looks like my father was right. There’s a power beyond Super Saiyan. And the two of you have unlocked it.”You look over yourself for a moment, finally really realizing what happened. This... it’s just like before, with Darkness. Gohan powers down completely, his hair finally returning to its natural red as he sits down, taking a deep breath. You feel your hair, even more spiked up than usual. Heh, wonder what this form is called?The ground starts to shake beneath you all. “Looks like the island’s going to sink beneath the waves after all. Let’s get going.” Piccolo declares.>A. Wait, what about big Gohan?!>B. Ms. Bra, what’s this form called?>C. Hug dad again, you were so scared...>D. Thank mom, even if she’s asleep>E. Something else?
>>1924670>A. Wait, what about big Gohan?!>B. Ms. Bra, what’s this form called?>C. Hug dad again, you were so scared...>D. Thank mom, even if she’s asleep>E. Something else?Focus on feeling out this new power. Maybe we can master it like full power super saiyan...
>>1924670>A, B, C, D.
>>1924670>A. Wait, what about big Gohan?!>B. Ms. Bra, what’s this form called?>Super DUPER saiyan?!?
>>1924670“Ms. Bra, what’s this form called?” you ask her, giving dad another hug. So glad he’s okay. “Mega Saiyan? Super DUPER Saiyan?!”“Ah... I don’t really know, to be honest.” she says bashfully. The island continues to shake and tremble. “Maybe you could call it... Ascended Super Saiyan?”“That sounds cool.” Gohan comments.“We reeeeally should be heading out.” Yamcha states. “Pantea and Bulma are probably worried sick now.”“What about the culture fluid stuff? Is there any of it left?” Gohan adds.“The rest should sink beneath the waves soon.” Uncle Acer replies ruffling your brother’s hair. “You two got the core of it.”You look over to your mom. Even if she can’t hear you right now, you tell her softly, “Thanks for saving dad.”Gohan smiles and nods with you. “Finally all over.”“Yeah, it...” It finally dawns upon you. It ISN’T over. “Wait, wait! Where’s big Gohan?!”Trunks’ brother seems a little confused, pointing to himself. “Uh...”“No, no, ours!” You look around, trying to sense him. You swear he was on his way here, where’d he go?The Time Patrollers start to feel a sense of dread, everyone taking to the air as the area breaks apart. Sea water rushes over the collapsing island, the last remnants of whole, dreadful few days finally vanishing... but even with almost everyone making it out alive, there’s an uneasy sense of anticipation lingering in the air.Everyone makes it back to Capsule Corp, with your mom and dad being put in beds to rest up. You and your brother have unlocked a new and tremendous power, but it might take years to perfect it like you did with Super Saiyan. And... nobody knows where Future Gohan’s ended up.But everyone seems to have an unanimous idea on what did happen to him. And it is not a comforting one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkgSOy-S-eU>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #70 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. So, this is it for Majin Ozotto... for now. Did y’all have fun?
>>1924758>>1924758that skunk! She keeps taking our saiyans!....Well I gotta say, the Ozotto Games did not disappoint.It'll be interesting to do for our second time in the 'HTC as a scenario (for Hatchiyak training no doubt) or pendulum room time.How's everyone feeling? Vegeta, Tien and Piccolo too.How strong did Goku get with Super Kaioken?What was the bio-cell-ozotto's highest power level? What did ssj 2 for the kids max out at?and...how do you feel now that we got through this?
>>1924758Had a good time. The poor rolls and the good rolls were dramatically sequenced.Do our smart people think visiting a time traveler via pendulum room might be dangerous?
>>1924758...Damn.Well Kato, this has been an awesome time. Rolls were dramatic, action was good, and the kids getting Super Saiyan 2 was a helluva thing. Thanks a ton for running.
>>1924769>>1924779>>1924786Thank you all for playing! Glad y'all had fun!It'll be interesting to do for our second time in the 'HTC as a scenario (for Hatchiyak training no doubt) or pendulum room time.You might not have as much time as you think...>How's everyone feeling? Vegeta, Tien and Piccolo too.Vegeta felt it. Vegeta is not exactly happy, especially since he KNOWS Peppa transformed. But he's trying really, really hard to convince himself that he knows that both Bra and he can reach it too. Just needs the right trigger.Tien is exhausted but glad he was able to pull his weight for this one. Launch does NOT want him pulling that stunt again, and he doesn't exactly look forward to trying to pull it off. Still, he's glad that this immediate threat is over.Piccolo feels that he might have been able to take Hatchiyak, but might not have done as well as Gohan and Peppa did against Super Hatchiyak. At the same time, he's lucky Tien succeeded, because Hatchiyak would not have given Tien another chance, nor would he be able to pull off the same trick. The Mafuba was kinda what he was planning to do too.>How strong did Goku get with Super Kaioken?While only able to do it for one attack, he briefly hits an equivalent power to Super Saiyan 2. Though, Super Saiyan 2 for him isn't as high as it would be for Gohan or Peppa.>What was the bio-cell-ozotto's highest power level? A bit under Super Perfect Cell. If he fought Broly when you first met him, he'd be about even with the Legendary Super Saiyan.>What did ssj 2 for the kids max out at?Gohan was just a bit weaker than canon Gohan. Peppa was about even.>Do our smart people think visiting a time traveler via pendulum room might be dangerous?If you're trying to find Gohan, it might be better to ask his boss directly.Speaking of, King Yemma nearly had a heart attack when Super Ozotto's spirit showed up. He demanded Trip give him some warning next time if something like THAT is headed his way. Still was able to send him to Hell, and has decided to get an "old friend" of Ozotto to guard him.
>>1924815Olibu! They got their reunion! Ozotto must be pissed!
>>1924815vegeta suicide tactic to bring out bra's power when
>>1924815>If you're trying to find Gohan, it might be better to ask his boss directly.That had occurred to me, but rematches with Ozotto was the first thing I thought of. Especially if he reads the visitors mind.
>>1924815a write up of olibu and super ozotto meeting in the next dimension would be delicious.We tried to make him our friend...How strong would normal ozotto and super ozotto together be?
Can we clothes beam living plants?
>>1924825He is not happy.>>1924865I'll get on that.A bit weaker than Super Perfect Cell, but a bit stronger than Broly was when you met him.>>1924857Ozotto would be capable of reading people's minds if they aren't blocked, and it would cause... issues.>>1924827He isn't exactly leaning towards that at this point. He might consider it though.>>1925287You can not.
>>1926792Is there any chance of us finding a way to make more senzu? Rapid bean time cloning occurred to me.
>>1927254Maybe find some other place on the planet where it grows?
>Piccolo feels that he might have been able to take Hatchiyak, but might not have done as well as Gohan and Peppa did against Super Hatchiyak. At the same time, he's lucky Tien succeeded, because Hatchiyak would not have given Tien another chance, nor would he be able to pull off the same trick.>HatchiyakEh!?
>>1933290Think that's s'pose to be ozotto, nice catch.
