If you’re new here, this Quest is continuing from the previous two, Tuffle Quest, which covers content from the Path to Power movie to the end of Dragon Ball proper, and Tuffle Quest Z, which starts from the beginning of Z to Age 767, with the defeat of Dr. Raichi (a bit past the Cell Games in canon). You will be starting off this as at Age 774, about the beginning of the Buu arc in canon. With that all said, let’s get started!
>>2926544https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOeRKE-ajsU“Come on, Peppa, let’s go!” The blazing, sparking, golden-haired form of your father, Son Goku, yells out as he charges at you at full force. He throws a powerful right hook at you, only for you to catch it with your left hand and grab on to his arm with your right. You use his momentum against him, tossing him behind you and following it up with a slash from your tail. But as Goku is thrown back, he manages to plant his palm on the ground and push away, flipping back to his feet as he dodges your tail strike.Your dad takes a fighting stance, and you keep your guard up, smirking as your own golden, sparking aura flows around you. “Same old trick, dad? Don’t tell me you’re starting to get rusty!” You deliver a spinning kick at him, Goku blocking it and trying to strike back at you. You guard against it and try to push back off him, only for Goku to grab your tail and attempt to toss you to the ground. You kick off him and land on your feet, bringing your guard up again.“Nah, just testing ya!” your dad replies with that dorky, excited grin of his. “We still got a bit before Gohan and Maple are done making breakfast, and I’ve got a feeling we’re getting close to pushing past that last barrier.”Past the barrier. You, dad, and Gohan have been trying for years now to go beyond this form, to break your limits once more. Even in these years of peace, there’s been this lingering worry that Towa was planning something, especially with the likes of Broly under her control. Your mom and dad have been preparing for that. You aren’t going to let them down. Still... what is the power you see beyond your barrier, Peppa?>A. Power beyond an Ascended Super Saiyan, huh? What’d you even call it, Double Ascended? Well, I’m gonna get it first, dad!>B. Before that, I want to perfect this power! Bring out as much of it as I can!>C. I want more than that! I want a strength beyond even Vegeta’s Golden Oozaru power!>D. The real barrier to push past is relying on Super Saiyan like this, I want to be able to use all this power without transforming>E. Maybe mom could help push us past this...>F. Something else on your mind?Also roll me 3d20, best of three.
Rolled 11, 10, 1 = 22 (3d20)>>2926550>A. Power beyond an Ascended Super Saiyan, huh? What’d you even call it, Double Ascended? Well, I’m gonna get it first, dad!>D. The real barrier to push past is relying on Super Saiyan like this, I want to be able to use all this power without transformingDon't want to be metagaming, but if a bunch of people stronger than her are pushing as hard as possible and getting nowhere, it makes sense that they're missing something.
Rolled 19, 20, 14 = 53 (3d20)>>2926550>>D. The real barrier to push past is relying on Super Saiyan like this, I want to be able to use all this power without transformingIt's a crutch.

>>2926550>A & D.Looks like I'm late to roll, but backing that.
Rolled 4, 2, 17 = 23 (3d20)>>2926576>>2926581>>2926583>>2926596Very nice! And thank you!Okay, writing...
>>2926550“Ascending beyond an Ascended Super Saiyan, huh? What’d you even call that, Double Ascended?” you question aloud, your dad laughing at that remark. You smirk, charging up your Ki even further. You point at Goku and declare. “I’m gonna get there first, dad! Count on it!” You ARE close, you just need a little something more to push you over the edge. Give it a couple more days and you’re sure you’ll reach the next level. You dash at Goku, trying for a few quick jabs that he blocks.“Bit of a mouthfull, really, I agree.” Goku replies, chopping at you, you managing to duck under and try for an uppercut, your dad just barely avoiding it. “What was it that Maple said Future Gohan called it? Super Saiyan 2? Well, then the next step is clearly Super Saiyan 3!” Goku manages to grab you by your arm as you attempt another jab, throwing you down and attempting to deliver a fierce dropkick, you only avoiding it with a quick Ki blast to the ground to push you away.You stand again, guard up. “Though, maybe the real trick is figuring out how to move past relying on Super Saiyan like this. The real barrier to overcome is making all this power mine without needing to transform. Some day, I bet I’ll do just that, dad.”The two of you continue training until breakfast is ready, your mom and brother calling the two of you back for a heaping dozen plates of pancakes. Ah, mom’s specialty! Still, with all this training, you’ve really improved a lot since you and Gohan beat Majin Ozotto, and everyone took down Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak. Gohan has improved too, but not quite as much as you and your father. After scarfing down a couple plates, your mom looks over to you and your brother. “So, are you two sure you’re ready for what’s coming on Monday?” she asks.“Mumdfay?” you mumble out through a mouthful of pancakes.(cont.)
>>2926720https://youtu.be/Qz-OOweIo-Q“Classes start up again, sis.” Gohan reminds you. “Videl’s been pretty anxious about it, but I’m certain we’ll do fine. You know, if a certain sister of mine remembers to do her homework this time.”“It was two assignments, give it a rest, bro.” you grumble out at him after gulping down your food. Never gonna live that down, huh?“Honestly the two of you are a good deal above high school level at this point. Missed assignments aside, I’m glad you’re both excelling, but you two sure you don’t want more of a challenge?” Maple asks the both of you.“I could, but I want to give myself a bit more time before I try deciding on something more. We’ll only be 14 this year, after all.” Gohan responds.Your mother looks over to you.>A. Same, really. I wanna have more time to decide on what I wanna do. Still a kid, mom!>B. I like the friends I’ve made, mom, I don’t want to jump ahead of them so quickly. Especially Videl, popular as she is, Gohan and I are some of the few among our class that connect with her the best>C. Eh, it’s a good balance. We can challenge ourselves, but don’t need to stress about it, while also giving us an opportunity to not skip out on training. Just look at how strong I am now, mom!>D. Honestly surprised you didn’t try for that Academy thing, Gohan. You’d get to spend even more time with Pantea~>E. Something else?Additionally, thanks to your training, your Power Level has hit 19,500,000.! LEVEL UP !You’re now at level 32!HP: Ki: Stamina: Melee: 66Energy: 66You’ve got 3 extra points to spend as you wish. QM’s suggestion: more Ki or Stamina would help you reach, and utilize, the next transformation quicker.
>>2926728>B.>C.Both of these seem reasonable.>statsTwo in Ki, one in Stamina
Has Goku tried reaching SSJ 3 with a fusion with Raditz yet, just to see how the form 'fits' so to speak? It'd also be a good way to really test Gohan and Peppa's SSJ 2.Perhaps even reaching strengthened ssj 2...too.Also, it's good to see Tuffle Quest back.
>>2926728You smile at your mother. “I like the friends I’ve made there, mom. I don’t wanna jump ahead of them so quickly. I mean, I still try to keep in contact with Cocoa, and Gohan, I have known her ever since like kindergarten. Videl especially is one reason. As popular as she is, Gohan, Izzy, and I kinda connect with her best, you know?” You take another bite of your pancakes and gulp them down quickly. “Plus, in general it’s just a good balance. Gohan, and I can keep up with schoolwork without sacrificing too much of our training time.” Sitting back and crossing your arms proudly, you add, “I mean, you felt dad and I out there this morning, look how strong we’ve gotten!”Maple chuckles. “Honestly, it’s a wonder you two don’t tear up more of our front lawn with those training sessions. The two of you are pretty even these days.”“Heehee, I’ve got more time for training and yet she still manages to keep up.” Goku states with pride.“Raw power’s not everything.” Gohan reminds you. “Still, sis has a good point in regards to schooling.”“It’s a good answer. You’re both doing far better than your uncle and I did when we were your age, with far more time on our hands too.” Maple comments. “And it’s setting a goood example for Daikon and Baozi.”>A. Oh yeah, I was gonna hang out with Daikon and uncle Raditz today. Mind teleporting me there, mom?>B. Thanks for the grub, and the reminder! I’m gonna head down to Mifan to meet Izzy, we were supposed to spend some time with Baozi today>C. Huh, speaking of friends, mind teleporting me over to Cocoa, mom? I had some plans today>D. Gonna head off and meet with Videl and teach, thanks for the breakfast, mom, Gohan!>E. Hey Gohan, didn’t Pantea have that new videogame thing you wanted to try out? Mind if I tag along?>F. Craaaaap, I promised to help Lime with some stuff! I’ll be back soon!>G. Welp, reserves are refueled, time to get back to training!>H. Something else?Please pick one to start.
>>2926925>A. Oh yeah, I was gonna hang out with Daikon and uncle Raditz today. Mind teleporting me there, mom?Can we use this as a lesson on how instant transmission works from mum?
>>2926924They hypothetically could, but they haven't tried it just yet. Hasn't really been a need so far, but if push came to shove they'd probably be able to unlock it. Raditz thinks the trick is greater Stamina reserves.Might be a good idea to suggest it to them, though, if you want to really test how strong Gohan and Peppa have gotten. And the boosted up Super Saiyan 2 is an option, but it requires focusing on the form more.And thank you! Glad to be back.>>2926931You could add that in, sure.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>2926925Ahh... Damn. Lot of these I wanna try.Narrowing it down to these two and letting the dice decide.>A = 1>C = 2
>>2926945Well there we have it, backing >>2926931
>>2926925“Oh yeah, I was gonna hang out with Daikon and uncle Raditz today. Mind teleporting me there, mom?” You give her the ol’ Tuffle eyes. Works every time.Maple sighs and shakes her head after giving a little chuckle. “Fine, fine.”“Hm... well, I’ll head off on my own then, I was going to meet with Pantea today.” Gohan tells the three of you.“You sure you don’t need me to teleport you too, son?” your mom asks.“Eh, it’s not urgent. I’ll see you guys later!”With Gohan off, you see Goku eye your brother’s plate, one pancake left untouched. “See you later, son! And have fun, Peppa! I’ll probably head over some time later.” he states and starts sliding it over to him.You and your mother stand up. She walks over to you, placing her hand on your shoulder. She pauses for a moment, placing her hand to her forehead, then moving it off and over to yours, juuuust barely above your hair. “...Another growth spurt and looks like my days of being second tallest are done for.”“Can’t help it! Growing girl” you chuckle out. “Ah, by the way mom, you ever gonna teach me your Instant Transmission trick?”“If you ever have the patience to try again.” she replies with a suspicious look.You pout. “I will, promise!”“Then review with me, first step?”“Locking on to a specific Ki signature!” you blurt out. You try to focus yourself on your Uncle’s Ki.“Second step?” she asks, placing her fingers on her forehead.“Concentrating your own Ki on that signature.”“Third step?”The tricky step. “Er... merging your... energy into some kind of zone thing... and moving through it?”Maple teleports you away with her, with you appearing near Raditz. “Close enough.”Your uncle turns around, smiling. “Well well, my favorite sister-in-law and niece. Come by for a visit?”“SNEAK ATTACK!” a young voice shouts, you and your mom dodging easily as an energetic little hairball lunges at you both, missing and landing face-first in the snow, tail swaying in disappointment. “...Aww butts.”“Never gonna get us that way if you keep announcing it, Daikon.” you tell your cousin with a smirk.He pokes his head up. “Will too.”“Have fun you kids, Goku and I still have some dishes to do.” Maple waves as she teleports back home.“Hmnh. So, are you ready to get this started?” Raditz asks.>A. Is he really ready to transform, uncle Raditz?>B. Of course! Lemme see this new technique you’ve been working on!>C. You betcha. SNOWBALL FIGHT!>D. Hey uncle, I’ve been thinking, you think you and dad could reach the next level through fusion?>E. Something else?
>>2927026>A. Is he really ready to transform, uncle Raditz?>D. Hey uncle, I’ve been thinking, you think you and dad could reach the next level through fusion?
>>2927026>C & D.
>>2927026>A. Is he really ready to transform, uncle Raditz?>D. Hey uncle, I’ve been thinking, you think you and dad could reach the next level through fusion?Happy to see this is back!Saiyanman Sentai antics when?
>>2927081Could still happen, but won't be for a while.>>2927026You place your hands behind your neck, tapping the snow-covered ground with one foot. “Is he really ready to transform, uncle Raditz?”Daikon’s face gains a beaming smile. Heh, the kid’s wanted his gold hair for a while now. You managed to transform when you were younger than him, buuuut recalling all that happened so long ago, circumstances were a little different. Raditz places his hand on his son’s head. “Just needs the right push. Thanks for coming to help, kiddo.”You stretch. “Ah, no biggie! So, let’s see it, Daikon.”The kid nods, taking his stance and building up power. “Ready!”Okay... recall what you learned. “The power comes from anger, but a just kind of anger. Build up your strength, build it up, and let it explode with fury!” The boy charges at you, but you push him aside. “Closer. Put more power into it, Daikon!”He gathers more of his strength, flying around you and trying to land a flurry of blows... each one easily blocked. “Ghh! Come on!”You finally land a palm strike to his torso that sends him flying back. Clearly, needs more than just a push. As Daikon comes flying back, you think you know a way to get under his skin a little. You turn to your uncle, almost ignoring your cousin as he attacks. “Dad and I were talking about pushing past the barrier again. Reaching the next level of power.”“Still not there yet, huh?” Raditz comments.“Betting if you and dad fused again, you two could overcome it. I’d really like to at least see it.” You keep pretending to ignore the increasingly frustrated kid, blocking and dodging every attack he throws at you.Raditz sighs. “While we could, I want to more than just reach it, I want to be able to use it. We power up and reach the next level, but what good is it if we can only land a single blow against a foe?”“Sometimes that’s all it takes. Just like-... huh?” You catch Daikon’s fist as you sense something approach, the boy trying to pull away to no avail as you lock on to it. It’s... weak, but unusually so. Seems to be in Jingle Village somewhere... a person? A weird person, their Ki is odd. Almost... sinister.>A. Probably nothing, just keep talking with Raditz>B. Toss Daikon in that direction>C. Time out! That’s suspicious, head over>D. Something else?
>>2927115>C. Time out! That’s suspicious, head overSamma Va-Wait crap baskets, we don't have holy radar.
>>2927115>C. Time out! That’s suspicious, head over
>>2927118...Ditthi*Can Peppa or Gohan learn the eight paths? That's something I haven't think we toched on.
>>2927115>>C. Time out! That’s suspicious, head over
>>2927115https://youtu.be/WbK8GHZ1ph8“Time out, time out!” You hold up the still struggling Daikon. “You guys sense that, right?”“Sense what?” the boy asks. “...Is this another trick to-”“No, focus.” you tell him.Raditz tilts his head. “Ugh, is it another bear going through our garbage again?” Focusing, he seems to pick up on what you’re sensing. “...We’re going.”You and your uncle start running, with you still holding Daikon by his arm. The presence seems to be near... Suno. You and Raditz hurry quicker, but as you both arrive, the presence somehow vanishes. The both of you hover above the snow slightly, with you finally letting go of Daikon, the boy doing the same. Suno pokes her head out of the window, noticing you all. “Oh, Peppa! Hello, what’s-”You and Raditz bring a finger to your lips. Raditz’s eyes widen as the two of you sense it inside the house. Not moving towards Suno, but whatever it is... it’s up to something.>A. Dash in and tackle it!>B. Help Suno out of the house, keep her out of danger>C. Block off the exits, corner it once it thinks it’s able to escape>D. Something else?
>>2927201>A. Dash in and tackle it!
>>2927201>D. Something else?Everyone hide! Then>A. SMASH!
>>2927201You motion for Suno to hide, then float towards the door. With Raditz guarding the window and Daikon heading in to cover his mom, you finally strike! You dash in and shout out “PEPPA SMASH!” as you tackle the figure. It is... much smaller than you were expecting.https://youtu.be/OAlY2H8gyr8“DANGER! DANGER! SERIOUS DANGER!” a small, white, spherical robot proclaims as you grab it. “DANGER! DANGER!”You turn it around, glaring at its large green optic. “Oh you bet you’re in danger. Who are you and why are you barging into my aunt and uncle’s house?” You raise your Ki a little.“HIGH ENERGY LEVEL DETECTED! DANGER! DANGER! GIRU, GIRU!”Suno and Daikon peek around the corner of their kitchen. “What is that thing?”“DANGER! DAN-GHH!”You bonk it against the floor. “Start. Talking.”The robot’s arms flail harder. “DANGER! SAIYAN DETCT-” Its flailing slows. “...Tuffle life force detected?” it asks aloud, confused.Well. Wasn’t expecting this today. “What about it, punkbot?”“Tuffle... Saiyan..” it starts repeating, confused. “Tuffle... Saiyan...? Tuffle... Saiyan...”“...Why does it have ki?” Raditz asks aloud. That’s... a good question.>A. I will not break you, robot, if you start talking, now>B. Bonk it again so it stops repeating that. Getting annoying>C. Taking this home to mom. Sorry Daikon, we’ll continue later!>D. Something else?
>>2927291>A.But threaten B.
>>2927291>A. I will not break you, robot, if you start talking, now>D. "...why can I sense your ki Mr. Robot?"
>>2927291>A. I will not break you, robot, if you start talking, now
>>2927291You bring it up to your face. “I will not break you, robot, if you start talking. Now. Also if you stop repeating that. It’s getting VERY annoying.”“GIRU, GIRU.” it mumbles out.“Question one: why can we sense ki from you?”“DESIGNATION: DB4649T2006RS.”“That’s not answering my question.” You glare harder.“MACHINE... MACHINE...” the robot starts scratching its head. “...ERROR, DATA FRAGMENTED.”“Are you with Dr. Gero?” Raditz asks it.“DR. GERO... DATA NOT FOUND. DR... DR... DR... ERROR, DATA FRAGMENTED. GIRU, GIRU.”Ugh. Well, at least Gero isn’t responsible, right? “Rules out that. Okay, what is your mission, DB46... whatever your name is, why are you here?”“I say call it Giru.” Daikon suggests.“GIRU, GIRU, MISSION: LOCATE LIVING SAIYAN LIFE FORMS AND RETURN. LIVING SAIYAN LIFE FORMS DETECTED. DANGER, HIGH ENERGY LEVEL DETECTED IN SAIYAN...” Its loud, obnoxious voice lowers again. “Complication: Tuffle life force detected. Saiyan life force detected.” The machine starts beeping frantically. “Saiyan... Tuffle?”“Yeah, cousin Peppa’s both.” Daikon blurts out.>A. Okay, “Giru,” you clearly know about us Tuffles, so would you be willing to talk to more of us?>B. We should probably take this thing over to Bulma>C. Reeeeally should let mom know about this>D. Are there any more of you?>E. Something else?
>>2927408>E. "Baby." Mom's told us about him right? To prepare us for the future battle that Gohan Red had to deal with.
>>2927408>A & B
>>2927408>A. Okay, “Giru,” you clearly know about us Tuffles, so would you be willing to talk to more of us?>B. We should probably take this thing over to BulmaActually let's get mom and Bulma together at once to sort this out.
>>2927408Yoooou’ve got an idea on where this is all going. And you do not like that idea. Mom has mentioned something about this years back... something about a monster based on the Tuffles. You hold on to the robot and state, “Okay, ‘Giru,’ listen up. You know about us Tuffles, right? Would you be more willing to talk if more of us were around? Maybe some to fix you a bit?”“GIRU, GIRU. Repairs appreciated!”“I’ll... try and contact mom and Bulma.” you tell Suno and Raditz. Hearing the news, Maple immediately teleports over, getting you and Giru to Bulma’s as fast as possible, Raditz stating he’s going to continue training Daikon. Though... before you leave, you feel another strange presence in the area, one that vanishes as soon as your mom arrives. Seems there’s more going on here than you expected. Best Raditz is around to keep that under watch.As you arrive at Capsule Corp, interrupting Gohan and Pantea’s gaming session before it could even really get started, your mom and Bulma get to work on learning about the little robot. With your uncle and cousin arriving shortly after, the machine looks over you all in mild confusion. “Five... Tuffle life forces detected. Two Saiyan life forces detected.”“Definitely does have Ki.” Acer states, watching as it stands and analyzes. “...16, would Doctor Gero have anything to do with this? Made it like he made you and 19?”“I have no recollection of it.” the red-haired head of an android replies, glaring at you all from the corner of the room. “And I am insulted that you think my father would build something so useless. Too large to be a spy robot, too noisy to be used to infiltrate anything. Clearly, defective trash.”“Giru, giru...” the robot beeps at him sadly.Maple rubs her chin. “It... really could be Baby, like in the future. That Gohan only ever got to mention parts of what happened, and given the differences in our timelines now, this could be something else entirely. Still... he knows about us, specifically.”Izzy rests her arms on the table, chin on her palms as she looks over the robot. “What does your programming tell you about us, little guy?”“Planet Plant’s Tuffle population wiped out by Saiyans, complete genocide. Five Tuffle life forces detected. Saiyan genocide not complete. Giru, giru. Directive 3: protect Tuffle life forms.”Maple and Acer look at each other. “...Protect?” they repeat.>A. How long would repairs to its memory take?>B. Where’s your home planet, then?>C. How did you end up on Earth?>D. Something else?
>>2927588>A. How long would repairs to its memory take?>B. Where’s your home planet, then?>C. How did you end up on Earth?>D. Something else?Ask 16 what type of robot Giru is then.
>>2927606Seconded>>2927588Also add that when we first sensed it, there seemed to be some maliciousness to it, but this doesn't seem the sort. Did the ki originate elsewhere? Is it still connected?
>>2927657Geat point. This too.
>>2927657>there seemed to be some maliciousness to itwonder if its connected to that other presence we felt.
>>2927588“Soooo... how long would repairing its memory take, Bulma?” you ask the purple-haired woman.“Well, I’d need to start making some schematics on its operating system, reverse-engineer what sort of alien technology is in it, without risking any additional damage... maybe a year?”“Bet we could knock it down to a few months if Maple and I help you.” Pantea comments.Bulma nods. “Absolute best case scenario, sure. Maybe less if we knew what we’re dealing with, any hints at all...”“Baba and I could probably find something, too.” mom adds in.You look over to 16‘s head. “You suuuure you don’t know what kind of robot it is?”“A tool, at best.” he replies dismissively. “Used for repairs and lab assistance. If it can not manage even that, it is clearly just an obsolete curiosity.”“YARR, SUNNY DISPOSITION YA HAVE THERE.” the pirate robot head beneath him comments.You, mom, Bulma, and Pantea all glance at Giru. “...Test it out?” the four of you ask each other.“Testing it out.” Gohan places a small, handheld blowtorch near Giru, and two sheets of scrap metal. “All right guy, do your thing.”Giru stands up, walks over to the torch, picks it up... and then its... body? Mouth? Whatever it is, it opens up and it places the blowtorch inside, consuming it with a loud crunch. It then produces a small blowtorch from its arm, welding the two sheets together.Pantea stares intently at the robot. “It’s like Rock and Kirby had a baby...”“So, alien helper robot from outer space that eats tools. Where exactly ARE you from, Giru?” you ask.“ERROR, DATA FRAGMENTED.” You grumble at it. Of course that’s its response.Bulma heads over to her computer, activating it and displaying a star map on the wall. “Can you at least narrow down a location? Here’s Earth...” she highlights the planet’s location.“ERROR, DATA FRAGMENTED.”You slam your hands on the table. “If your data’s so fragmented, how did you end up on Earth anyway? You need to know SOMETHING.”Giru beeps before responding, and finally, finally, you get something out of it. “Last known location was a desert planet. 27 possible results. Last known interaction was with a figure dressed in dark blue. 3 distinctive marks on individual. Systems shut down upon encountering individual. Reactivation and search for Saiyans occurred shortly after arriving on planet. Giru, Giru.”Waaait a second. “...I sensed an odd ki signature when you arrived. You don’t seem to have it... but something with you did.”“GIRU, GIRU! Possibility of Ki signature belonging to individual high!”>A. What distinctive features did they have?>B. Contact uncle Raditz, see if he senses anything still>C. Is there anything else you can recall, Giru?>D. Something else?
>>2927849>A. What distinctive features did they have?>C. Is there anything else you can recall, Giru?>D. Something else?Maybe we can help him...piece things together by giving him more tech to eat?Ask mama to make it a scouter to eat. See if our version helps him out.And see if she make it a dragon radar so he doesn't eat the one we have.>Peppa starts finding tech 'meals' to upgrade Giru with.>"He's video-game compatible!" >Giru becomes BMO
>>2927884>dragon radarThat's a terrible idea, keep all mention of dragonalls away from the maybe scout thing.
>>2927931Fair enough. He's gonna eat it eventually. Unless we watch'em like Yajirobe on the senzu beans.
>>2927849>A. What distinctive features did they have?>B. Contact uncle Raditz, see if he senses anything still>C. Is there anything else you can recall, Giru?Yeah this is all important.
>>2927849“Okay, first, is there anything else, anything at all that you can recall from before you ended up here?” you question Giru once more.“Names, places, features of the planet you were on...?” your mom specifies. She seems to have a hunch.“Giru, Giru. Desert planet, two moons in the sky upon last view of night. Searching... searching... data recovered.” On the sheet metal he was given, Giru welds out a number of symbols... ones your mom identifies immediately.“No way, Imecka?!” she blurts out in surprise.“Isn’t that where you met the Ginyu Force?” Bulma asks her.“Yeah, where we met that Ledgic guy, too.” she confirms. “Giru, can you confirm you’re from there, or another planet?”“Earlies files do not match that planet. Giru, Giru.” the robot states.“So that’s a start, at least.” Acer adds in.You think “Those distinctive features, what were they?”“Giru! Giru! In addition to the dark blue suit, the individual possessed white armor, large lips, and this mark on its forehead.” He welds another thing onto the sheet of metal... huh. That is bizarre... some kind of... weird “M” symbol?Regardless, you think to mention to Raditz if he could sense anything after you all left. He apparently did pick up on some strange presence nearby, but they’re gone now. Still, he’ll be on the lookout for any individuals like that.With this excitement out of the way, you...>A. Try to keep watch over this suspicious little robot, it’s already shown interest in eating tools, gotta make sure it doesn’t go after something important like the Dragon Radar>B. Tell Lime and Cocoa all about this, they’ll never believe it!>C. Recount it all to Videl as you and Gohan walk to school with her>D. Head back and keep up your work with uncle Raditz and Daikon, that kid’s almost got it!>E. Something else?
>>2928065>C. >E. Ask her about the Kaio-Ten and if she's reached it. Maybe it holds clues for going even further beyond SSJ 2?
>>2928121reached mastering it*
>>2928065>A. Try to keep watch over this suspicious little robot, it’s already shown interest in eating tools, gotta make sure it doesn’t go after something important like the Dragon Radar>Think of a safer place to keep it?
>>2928065Well, first you spend some time helping Bulma and Pantea set Giru up in a secure place, both for his own sake and the sake of everything around him. He’s already gone and eaten a blowtorch, who knows what else me might try to eat. Keep the little guy away from the expensive stuff, and especially the Dragon Radar. It... proves to be more of a challenge than you expect. The robot is naturally curious. A bit too curious. For most of the day you keep finding him get into things he shouldn’t, even eating the prized cappuccino machine Bulma’s dad loves... though, since Giru can copy mechanical devices, the old man takes it in stride, having a new “mobile” cappuccino machine at his call.Your mom ends up being the one who finally figures out a solution: have her camels watch over the robot. That it works is something you really would be questioning if you weren’t so used to it by now, but truth be told Larry, Curly, and Moe prove to be excellent caretakers for the little guy. As your mom always says, such a good deal.https://youtu.be/Qz-OOweIo-Q“Well, ominous as that might have started out as, at least the thing isn’t trying to cause any trouble.” Videl comments to you as you finish recounting the events to her, walking with her hands behind her head, her twintails bouncing slightly with every step she takes.“Still couldn’t take my eyes off that thing for a minute until mom figured that out.” You glance over to your brother and give him a glare. “Would’ve been a lot of help if SOMEONE took his eyes off the videogames for ten minutes and let me get a break.”“You were handling it fine on your own.” Gohan says with an innocent smile. “Besides, it was the new Zelda! You know how long she’s been waiting for that thing to come out? Triforce Champions, with Ys-inspired combat additions and a party system with Linkle and...”(cont.)
>>2928428You roll your eyes as Gohan’s rant continues. Not this again. You mutter out, “For as long as you two spend with your faces glued to a screen it’s a miracle you both manage to keep up with Videl and me in the slightest.”“Peppa, be nice.” Videl giggles. “It’s not like you don’t have a few you’re thrilled by. You and Cocoa especially.”“I more than make up for it.” you adamantly state. “Speaking of... say how’s your training with the Raio-Ten gone? Think you’ve mastered the thing yet?”“That’s... a tricky question.” Videl replies. “There’s just so much you can do with it, ‘mastering’ it isn’t really that easy. It’s a very variable form.” She cracks her knuckles confidently. “But I definitely have gotten a lot of use out of it. Keep giving Chuu Lee a run for her money.”“We should put that to the test some time, then. I’m certain close to breaking through the barrier.” You smile up at the blue skies as the three of you approach Orange Star High School. Maybe a real match with Videl is just what you need to go even further beyond.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #1... Paused>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2928428>Besides, it was the new Zelda! You know how long she’s been waiting for that thing to come out? Triforce Champions, with Ys-inspired combat additions and a party system with Linkle and...”Gimme a rundown on this timelines' Zelda games stat.>>2928431Great times were had Kato. I like how things are progressing, got a bit of a mystery set up and a nice goal for Peppa so far.Also what games DOES Peppa like?
>>2928461Thanks, anon! Glad to be running again.>Gimme a rundown on this timelines' Zelda games stat.The first major change is that Twilight Princess did came out for the Gamecube first, back in early Age 770. The first Wii Zelda title is instead a game called Mark of Beasts, featuring the Hero of Beasts, in late 771, visually halfway between Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. There was a remake/re-imagining of the Oracles games called Oracle of Secrets released in late 772, in a similar style to A Link Between Worlds, that features a sort of 2 in 1 system with a bonus final story once both are complete. Also features the Hero of Beasts. Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks still happened. The most recent Zelda game is, as Gohan just said, Triforce Champions, a true sequel to Mark of Beasts that's more experimental, featuring a party system with the Hero, Queen Zelda, and the Gerudo King Onox all as members. It resembles a mix of 3D Zelda and Ys Seven.>Also what games DOES Peppa like?Good question. What do y'all say Peppa likes?
>>2928608>Good question. What do y'all say Peppa likes?Fighting games.Harvest Moon.Pokemon AND Digimon.
>>2928608Also do Krillin and Lazuli have a kid yet?
>>2928608Suikoden seriesBreath of Fire.Uhhh....Secret of Mana?
>>2928608Rhythm games modified to be PINPOINT PRECISE by Pantea.
>>2928608Actually I did some thinking and I say Peppa's favorites are skill-intensive action hack-and-slash and beat-em-up games. Stuff like Devil May Cry, God Hand, Ninja Gaiden, Viewtiful Joe, Okami, etc.
>>2930433>>2930433Bayonetta?>>2928608Question: if Peppa stays in ssj 2 like we did with full power ssj, would that help with stamina training?I think Konpei will answer what we need for SSJ 2 and Kaio-Ten...
>>2928608I imagine that when she plays video games she likes to go to the arcade and try to get the top scores.
>>2930635>Pantea's shooter game score is always above Peppa's>Videl beats her at every fighting game.
>>2930744At least she has DDR.

You make a little doodle of the “M” symbol Giru made, surrounded by question marks, with a basic sketch of the robot in question, and then another basic sketch of where you sensed everything in Jingle Village. So the first one, presumably the person with the symbol, ended up heading towards Raditz and Suno’s house... but then he vanished after leaving Giru there.Or... maybe he didn’t actually vanish? Perhaps he just hid his Ki. You calculate how far away you felt that Ki signature again. It WOULD be relatively close to Raditz and Suno’s home... and he didn’t show up after that. Maybe he was hiding his Ki, while... also turning invisible? Or did he use something like Instant Transmission...?...What did mom say they were called? Yard... something...“Lost in her own little world again...” the girl next to you comments quietly, looking at you.Your head jolts up, first checking to make sure the teacher isn’t addressing you directly. “...and that is why, discounting air resistance, objects of different mass will fall at the same rate. The famous moon experiment...”You quietly sigh in relief, then glance at her with mild annoyance. “Don’t scare me like that, Erasa.”“What even are you drawing?” she questions.“Going over some things that happened on the weekend in my head.” you tell her. “Not every day you have an alien robot show up at your uncle’s house.”“You’d be surprised.” the boy next to Erasa, a lanky, shorter boy with glasses, Pen, comments. “Last week there was one going through my underwear drawer. At least, that’s what my sister said.”“...TMI, Pen, TMI.” Gohan, on the other side of you, mumbles. “As glad as I am you’re taking this seriously, sis, try not to let it distract you in class, please.”Speaking of distractions, you notice in the row of seats in front of you Sharpner is once again trying to ask Videl out on a date. And looks like, once again, she’s going to turn him down.>A. ARE there any boys she likes? Always seems like she brushes off everyone who attempts to ask her out>B. Zenni football at the back of his head? Zenni football at the back of his head>C. ...Pen, did she say that robot looked like this? (Show him the picture of Giru)>D. I notice you’re drawing some things too, Erasa. Is it the usual, or have you moved on to a new boy?>E. Something else?
>>2931057>E. Something else?Ask the teacher about his views on Capsule Corporation Gravity technology and how it changed our understanding of the weakest force as a whole!>then>B
>>2931057>B, C, D.
>>2931057>A. ARE there any boys she likes? Always seems like she brushes off everyone who attempts to ask her out>B. Zenni football at the back of his head? Zenni football at the back of his head
>>2931085I'll back >A too actually.Should we start playing matchmaker for Videl?
>>2931057Might as well get him off her back a bit. Friendly as he tries to be, time and a place for that, and now is not it. You get a 1 Zenni coin out of your pocket and stealthily place it on the table, then, gently now, don’t wanna REALLY hurt him, you flick it at the back of Sharpner’s head. He yelps quietly as the coin bounces off him, turning his head around trying to find what that was. You stay as low-key as possible, taking some notes on what your instructor’s saying.“...Corporation discovering a method of increasing and decreasing the force of gravity directly, revolutionizing our understanding of gravity as a fundamental force.”You can’t help but smirk just a little. Mom actually told you a good deal about this herself. She WAS one of the people responsible for it, after all. You take a brief glance down at Sharpner, who’s finally giving it a rest. Videl seems to glance up at you in return. There’s a thankful smile on her face, but she shakes her head. You both know she didn’t REALLY need that bit of help, but still, didn’t hurt.You have to wonder, though, are there ANY boys she’s into? Always seems like she brushes off everyone who attempts to ask her out, no matter how nice they are. Say, speaking of... “You drawing something too, Erasa? Is it the usual, or have you moved on to a new boy?”A cheeky smile appears on her face as she shows you a rather detailed sketch of a young man. “Barry Kahn, he’s so dreamy.”“My sister’s walls are plastered with pictures of that guy.” Pen adds in.“...Say, Pen, that robot your sister saw, did it look like this?” You show him your drawing of Giru.“Nah, it was this weird-looking huge thing that broke into our home. Some kind of thing with these big metal pauldrons. Don’t know why he was in my underwear drawer, but police managed to scare him off.”Well, nuts. Not a lead. But... definitely weird. Erasa scoots closer. “What do you think, Peppa? Isn’t he a hunk?”>A. Not in the slightest my type>B. I... guess? Dunno really>C. Sure!>D. Something else?
>>2931263>D. "Pamput is a much better actor, and his muscles aren't vanity."
>>2931263>>B. I... guess? Dunno really
>>2931263You move back slightly. “Eeeehhhhhhh... I dunno. Not really feeling it.”Erasa pouts at you, shaking her head. “Tastes will change as you get older, kid, trust me.”“Doubt that.” you affirm. “Besides, Gohan and I have seen some of his movies. Pretty overrated, kinda stale in his dialogue delivery. Meanwhile you’ve got guys like Pamput out there who still do their own stunts. Aren’t going around with vanity muscles, either.”“Isn’t that guy like, 50?” the blonde girl questions you with suspicion.“It’s just a comparison.”“...acceleration due to gravity, which is...” you hear your teacher’s voice in a tone you’re all too familiar with. He’s going to check to see if you’re paying attention again. “How about...” You immediately shoot your hand up, Gohan doing the same. Erasa and Pen immediately turn towards the front. “Ah good, volunteers. Son Peppa, you are up.”“9.80665 meters per second squared, sir.” Nailed it. He likes it when you add the extra decimals.“Correct! Thank you.”Erasa lowers her head, letting out a sigh of relief. “Close one. Thanks for the save.”With that class over, you and Gohan...>A. Are done for the day! Finally! See if Videl still wants to spar>B. Have lunch next, time for the meal mom packed you both!>C. Can finally stretch your legs with some Physical Education! Sitting around like that gets you antsy!>D. Something else?
>>2931498>A. Are done for the day! Finally! See if Videl still wants to spar
>>2931498>A.The DBH manga really has some nice expressions.
>>2931498>C. Can finally stretch your legs with some Physical Education! Sitting around like that gets you antsy!
>>2931498You and Gohan next get to enjoy a bit of PE, finally stretching your legs after sitting for so long. Sure you don’t mind going through all these classes, but going for so long without some physical activity makes you a little antsy. Though, today was fairly uneventful. Bit of jogging, basketball, and top it all off with dodgeball. You are the BEST at dodgeball. Too good, really. Sometimes Gohan has to remind you to not take things too seriously. Bah, maybe they just need to toughen up a bit.“Another day of school done and over with.” you exclaim with a smile, walking out with everyone.“Was interesting hearing some of the stuff on the Nemurian ruins again.” Gohan comments. “You know, without a demon going around searching for cursed artifacts in there.”“You can say that again.” Videl affirms.“Hearing all the crazy stuff you guys got up to scares me sometimes.” Erasa adds in. “Especially with how young you two were.”“Hey, we came out of it all without too many scratches.” you reply dismissively. “And ended up stronger than ever. Oh!” You skip ahead of your group, pointing at Videl. “You still feel up for some sparring?”She smirks and cracks her knuckles. “I think I can spare a few minutes.”“Usual place?”“Usual place.”Gohan shakes his head. “All right, all right, sheesh, enough with the flirting you two. I’ll let mom know you’ll be home late...”>A. You’re welcome to join if you’d like, bro!>B. Bro, shush your face>C. Enough chat, let’s go, Videl!>D. Something else?
>>2931735>A. You’re welcome to join if you’d like, bro!need your input to sense what we're missing and need help you train too...
>>2931735>B.Noogie him.>A.He could use itThen>C.
>>2931756Haha yes this.
>>2931735>C. Enough chat, let’s go, Videl!
>>2928637No Dragon Quest Monsters?
>>2931735You quickly grab your brother and begin to noogie him. “Bro. Shush your face.”“Ow! Ow! H-hey, stop that!” he protests.Videl laughs, Eresa raising an eyebrow before you let go. “Hey, you could use some training too, bro. You should come with. Might be worth it to at least have an observer to see what we could improve on.”Your brother shrugs. “Fine, fine.” You can tell he was about to continue his joke, but quickly decided against it. “See you tomorrow, Erasa, Pen, Sharpner!”“Later you two!” the blonde girl exclaims.“Hey, Videl, the offer’s still open. Think on it. I’ll pay.” Sharpner comments to her.“Eh, I’ll think on it.” she replies non-committally. “No promises.”“Okay, enough chat, let’s go!” The three of you take to the skies, noticing Izzy take off in the opposite direction back home. You head over to the mountains near the city, both you and Videl taking a fighting stance.“You just want a warm-up, or you wanna see me at my best?” Videl asks with confidence, her aura flaring up around her.Gohan backs away, watching over you both.>A. Warm-up first>B. Full power! Hold nothing back, Videl!>C. Hey, I said you get in here too, Gohan!>D. Something else?
>>2931825>A. Warm-up firstcompare raiokens, kaiokensthen compare ssj with raio-ten and ssj 2 when we need to go all out
>>2931825>B. Full power! Hold nothing back, Videl!
>>2931825>A. Warm-up first>>2931837I like this, and explore ways to press our power rather than just tapping our normal limits, maybe by trying to push our transformations more tan raw power? Not sure it works quite like that, but a bit of focus on things couldn't hurt.
>>2931837>>2931868Actually yeah, I'll back this.
Okay then, roll me 4d20, best of three.

Rolled 14, 19, 7, 17 = 57 (4d20)>>2931906
>>2931825https://youtu.be/7GQD7Yaasro“Let’s have a warm-up first. Compare each level of power we’ve got.” You take your stance, your own aura flaring around you.“Fine by me!” Videl shouts out, charging at you. She tries for one of her dad’s Dynamyte Kicks... only to feint at the last minute, instead attempting to knee you in the face. You still are able to react in time, blocking her attack and pushing her off, then thrusting forward with a palm strike that sends Videl on her back.“Point: me.” you declare proudly... only to notice that in a literal blink of the eye, Videl’s vanished, leaving a trail of sparks leading upward. As you look up... aw crap.“Kaio-ken!” she yells out, her aura a blazing red as she flies down at you.Crap, that’s quicker than you were expecting. You dash out of the way with the Raio-Ten, only for Videl to keep at it, charging at you with a flurry of blows. You keep dodging until the surge of strength disappears, finally getting the chance you need to really let loose. You power up further, transforming into a Super Saiyan right as Videl tries to amp up her Kaio-ken and tripping her down, grabbing her arm while she’s off-balance and flinging her to the ground once again. You grin proudly. “Two points, now.”Videl backflips away. “All right. We do this the hard way then... KAIO-TEN!” A calmer white aura surrounds Videl, her power jolting up even further, as her aura starts to focus into her legs, especially around her calves, ankles, and feet. She brings one leg up, then jumps with the other, finally kicking at you... and instead of heading forward, she releases a jolt of energy from her kick. You try to bring up your guard again, but too little, too late, you’re pushed back, arms raised as poorly block the energy thrust at you... and with that, Videl has her target, landing a solid kick to your gut.As you’re pushed back, you skip across the mountaintop twice before managing to orient yourself upright again. “Well... that hurt a bit.” you grumble out, rubbing your gut.“Guess that’s point: me.” she tells you with renewed vigor.(cont.)
>>2932124You push yourself further, ascending past Super Saiyan again. “No more holding back then!” you yell out as your sparking, golden aura surges.The both of you dash forward, trading blows for a short time. Videl might not be as strong as your dad, but she’s certainly got some variety to her skillset. She keeps moving that focused part of her aura around, blocking and dodging your attacks better, and returning with much more force than you can really feel coming from her. She’s got a bit of a height advantage, too, so trading blows is just a bit more difficult for you.But you’ve got just one trick that’s hard to really dodge. After making one more guard attempt against an Eagle Kick coming from Videl, you let out an Explosive Wave that finally forces her back. “Th-third point... ha... haa...”“I’m not done yet.” she tells you, getting up once more.You ready yourself. You’re getting close... you can feel it.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #1... Paused>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions?

>>2932135Wow, Videl really has gotten tough. Good on her.
So what are we looking at for pairings?Gohan x Pantea seems like the most likely so far. But what other options does he have? Videl? Lime? Erasa?What about Baozi and Daikon? Would Daikon and Marron work as a thing?We got any preferences on Peppa?
>>2933902Is Peppa going to be a lesbian? Even as an anti-yurifag, you have my permission to finally indulge you faggoty ass dyke tendencies Kato, since you at least had one female MC take the monkey dick.>tfw I can't even tell if Peppa is a woman or not and for all I know I'm talking about a male MCI need to catch up on this fucking fanfic, mary sue ass crack quest.
>>2934069>since you at least had one female MC take the monkey dick.http://pastebin.com/YgpJGadb
>>2934069I'd be fine with Peppa being the gay one out of the kids, honestly. My personal preference is just that we don't go with the obvious and try to get together with Videl. I wanna see at the very least what Cocoa or Lime might have to offer first though. Or if we try the bi or straight route, maybe Kuriza.Guess we could also wait until Super, too. Options kind of open up more there. Cabba, Caulifla, Kale... wait, remind me again, was Bra straight? Also crack pairing idea: we hook up Cabba and Videl.
>>2934129I always thought Gohan was gay too.
>>2934133Nah, Gohan's totally into chicks.
>>2934142What's the term for that? Not scalie even if they are dinosaurs...>>2934143What? I happen to like vanilla every now and then.
>>2934096...please tell me you didn't write that yourself.
>>2934154nah, Chuckles the Fuckles wrote it.
>>2932169She's been keeping up her training, even in the time of peace.>>2933902Lot of things open for that, anon. I'm all ears if y'all do have preferences on any of that.>>2934069I'll say this: I'm not going to block it off like I did for Maple. However, any characters y'all do want Peppa to end up with are going to need a good deal of build-up. Further, there's no need to try and hook up with anyone, and honestly I'd be okay if y'all put it off. And do note that Peppa is only 13/14 currently.>>2934129Kuriza would... definitely take more effort than others. I guess the U6 Saiyans and other characters from the other universes may be on the table, but that will not be for quite a while. And yes, Bra is straight.>Also crack pairing idea: we hook up Cabba and Videl.I'll say I find the idea amusing, at the very least.>>2934133>>2934142If y'all have a preference on this too, feel free to say so.Okay, with that all out of the way, we're back!>>2932135You take a chop at Videl, the girl ducking under you and trying to sweep your legs. You jump up to dodge that, attempting an elbow drop against her, Videl backing away. She brings her hands back and then thrusts them forward, throwing forth a pair of Ki blasts. You spin around them to dodge, letting out a slash of Ki at her with your tail.Moving the focus of her aura to her legs again, Videl jumps up and lands behind you. As you dodge an elbow strike, Videl starts to chat. “You know... I’ve been thinking.”“About what?” you ask her, attempting a roundhouse kick to her side, one that Videl manages to block.“My hair’s been getting pretty long. Kinda thinking I should cut it.”>A. Whaaaat? No way, long hair suits you best!>B. Guess it would be easier to manage, might turn a few heads with shorter hair, too>C. If you wanna change up your style, try a ponytail or something like me. Oooh, oooh, maybe braided!>D. Something else?And roll me 2d20, best of three. DC for both is 14.

>>2934982>I'm not going to block it off like I did for Maple.oh my god You only wanted Maple to be hetero so she could breed the next MC!YOU USED HETEROSEXUALITY FOR YOUR OWN NEFARIOUS, QM GOALS!
>>2935062Nah, most of this was decided by vote. Only reason we're starting off with Peppa is because she was the favored choice by a wide margin. And my nefarious goals are something else entirely.
I swear if we hit SSJ3 while praising long hair I'm going to laugh my ass off.
>>2935118Let's hope that crit works for us.
>>2934982>If y'all have a preference on this too, feel free to say so.What if Gohan had a crush on a Furry?
>>2934982Hmm... short hair, on Videl? Could be easier to take care of... but nah. Nah. You catch her arm and shake your head. “Whaaaaaat? No way, long hair suits you best, Videl!” You toss her up and try for a spin kick, Videl only narrowly getting out of the way. “I mean, if you wanna change your style I guess you could go for a ponytail like mine, but the one you’ve got now? You’re rocking that style.”She chuckles. “Thanks, Peppa.” She takes a fighting stance again. “How are you feeling? Any closer to breaking that barrier?”You take a moment to feel your own Ki. Well... there’s improvement, but you need something more. You move up into the sky. “Videl, I want you to try one of your strongest attacks against me.”She’s taken aback just a bit. “A-are you sure?”“I can take it.” you tell her confidently, letting your sparking aura surge around you.You see her move the focus of the Raio-Ten to her hands, and she starts building up Ki. “You better be, Peppa. If there’s any chance this is more than you can handle, I’m stopping it. Okay?”“I said I can take it!”While reluctant, Videl recognizes your confidence. “Kaaa...”Calming yourself, you try to visualize what you’re lacking. It’s not the anger that allowed you to break past Super Saiyan, it’s something else. Something deep inside, something raw. You bring your hands forward, ready to catch the blast. “Do it!”“Meeee.... HAAAAA!” Videl roars out, blasting forth a massive Kamehameha. You brace yourself, trying to take it. You catch the beam, holding it back with all your might... and realizing that she really isn’t holding anything back with this. You can barely hold on. But you don’t give up. You do everything you can to hold the blast back, trying to draw on your reserves of strength.Gohan finally steps up from where he’s sitting, shouting to you with worry, “Peppa that’s too much! You’re going to get hurt!”“I... can... DO THIS!” you yell back at him, not just trying to convince yourself as much as him. You grit your teeth. Think, Peppa! Would you be giving up if this were someone actually trying to kill you? You need... you need more power!(cont.)
>>2934982>D. How about a silly hat? You'll look cute, even without- eh, with it on!
>>2935238https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K61rG1hxBwA“SIS, STOP! GET OUT OF ITS PATH!” Gohan yells. “V-VIDEL THAT’S ENOUGH!”“I... CAN... DO THIIIIS!” you scream out.Everything seems to slow down. You... you feel a strange jolt of power run through your body, from the tip of your tail to the top of your head. You start to push back Videl’s blast. More... more power! The ground below you starts to tremble, you see your life briefly flash before your eyes. Something inside just... snaps. You almost swear you hear the roar of your Oozaru self for just a moment. You push Videl’s Kamehameha upwards, finally deflecting it... and you keep powering up. Let that power explode!“RRRAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!”The slowed feeling of time finally ceases. You find yourself panting heavily... but you’ve gotten something. Something new. You feel twice... three times...? No, beyond even that. You’re stronger. You... you......Why does your head feel ten kilograms heavier?Gohan and Videl look up at you, stunned. “S-sis... what... what is...”>A. Dad said Super Saiyan 2 was less of a mouthful, so I guess you can call this... Super Saiyan 3>B. ...Are your eyebrows missing? Why DOES your head feel heavier?>C. Contact dad! Contact him at once!>D. Something else?
>>2935246>D. Hmm, the missing link between super saiyan and oozaru. Neanderthayajin.
>>2935246>A, B.Hell fucking yes
>>2935246>D. "I could snap this world in twain with a thought."
>>2935246>D. "Oh no, it's... too... much!" spin away from them, put your tail to where it's a fake moustache, then spin back, "HAIR!!!"
>>2935246>B. ...Are your eyebrows missing? Why DOES your head feel heavier?
>>2935246>A. Dad said Super Saiyan 2 was less of a mouthful, so I guess you can call this... Super Saiyan 3>>B. ...Are your eyebrows missing? Why DOES your head feel heavier?
>>2935264Oh, oh! Also>D."Told you. Long hair is better."
>>2935246>D. "I'm gonna need more ribbons."
>>2935246There’s so much going through your head right now. So much raw power coursing through your body. You try to calm yourself, and once you’re able to catch your breath, you close your eyes. “Dad said a couple days ago that Super Saiyan 2 was less of a mouthful than Ascended Super Saiyan...” You open your eyes and look down, grinning wildly as you point your thumb at yourself. “If so, I guess you can call this... Super Saiyan 3.”You float down to Gohan and Videl, the two of them still stunned. “You... you really did it...” your brother repeats in mild disbelief.Woah balance is... off a bit. You rub your head... wait a second. “...Uh, are... my eyebrow missing? And why is my...” You move your hand up, feeling your hair. “Why is my head heavier?” Videl brings out a capsule, opening it to reveal a hand mirror. She presents it to you. “I’m honestly just as confused as you are.”WOAH. That is... way more hair. It’s more than just spiked up, your ponytail’s grown by like... almost a meter in length. You tilt your head back and feel your hair reach below your waist. Maaaaybe not the prettiest look you’ve had, but... uh-oh. As you look into the mirror, the sheer force of your aura creates a tiny crack in it. You quickly hand it back to Videl. “Woops.”While annoyed, she doesn’t hold it against you. Gohan walks around you as a few tiny rocks and pebbles seem to shake on the ground. “Where did all this hair come from?”“Heh, well, guess I was right. Long hair IS better.” you declare with a wide grin. Your ribbon then snaps. “...Gonna need more of those. Stronger ones, too.”Crossing her arms and smiling, Videl asks, “Well, satisfied, Peppa?”>A. Depends. Wanna see what this power can do, Videl?>B. Power down, then see if you can power up into it again>C. Call dad! Call him right now!>D. Something else?
>>2935385>C. Call dad! Call him right now!
Mind rolling me 1d20, best of three? DC is 14.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>2935477
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2935477
>>2935479>>2935485>>2935495Thaaat could've gone better. Writing...
>>2935385“I need to call dad! I need to call him RIGHT NOW!” you shout out excitedly, twirling and skipping around, your now-massive amount of hair spinning and bouncing with you.“Aaaalready on it.” Gohan states. “Yeah, it was her. Yeah, their usual spot.”You tremble with excitement, Videl getting out a camera and stepping back. “Peppa, photo.”“Cheeeeeese!” Turning aroun to face her, as soon as you hear it click, you feel... strange. Your body’s still kinda shaking. Oof... were... were you still out of breath from that?Goku and Maple teleport in, your dad looking at you with a smile that seems to stretch from ear-to-ear. “Haha! HAHA! Maple! Look, look! She did it! She did it!”You stand proudly as your dad runs to you... but your knees feel a little weak. “Y-yep! This... is Super Saiyan... Th... Three...” No no no no what’s going on? Your strength’s fading. You fall on your hands and knees, your aura disappearing as you pant in exhaustion. As Goku reaches you, you look up at him... noticing your hair’s back to normal. Did you REALLY only last that long in this form? You hang your head. “...Sorry dad.”Goku picks you up, spinning you around with him. “Sorry nothing! You reached it, Peppa! You showed it was possible!” Your dad hugs you tight. “So proud of you, kiddo!”>A. Hug ‘em back. Thanks dad>B. Well, at least you got that photo, Videl>C. Mom, what could you pick up from that brief moment?>D. Wait, wait, no, you can try again, really! Transform!>E. Something else?
>>2935560>A.No need to push our luck>B.Man hope we didn't break her camera too>C.
>>2935560>A. Hug ‘em back. Thanks dad>>B. Well, at least you got that photo, Videl
>>2935560>A. Hug ‘em back. Thanks dad
>>2935560>A. Hug 'em back. Thanks dad.>E. You're so tired. You're one big lump. You're lump, you're lump, you're lump, you might be dead.
>>2935560You hug him back. “Thanks, dad.” Hooh, that really did take it out of you. Glancing over to Videl, you ask her, “Well, at least you got that photo, right?”“Give me a minute...” she replies, checking it over. “...Kiiiiinda?” Goku walks over with you still in his arms, Gohan and Maple heading to her too. Ah. Well... there IS a picture of you with your new form there, but your aura’s kinda... obscuring everything. Way too bright. Nuts. “Pretty sure the flash was off...”Goku brings you up on his shoulders. “Ah, you’ll get another chance, Videl! For now, let’s just be glad it happened.”“Thank you so much, Videl.” you tell your friend with a sweet smile. “You helped me pull that one off.”“Heh, any time. But looks like I’ll need to work ten times harder if I want to catch up.” she admits.“Was still kinda reckless, sis.” Gohan comments. “Even if it did get you this Super Saiyan 3 power.”“Worked, didn’t it?” you ask him.“We can talk more about this later. Getting close to dinner.” mom reminds you. “Videl, you need a trip home?”She bows. “Thank you for the offer, Maple, but I think I’ll fly. I wanna clear my head a bit, if you don’t mind.”“Fair enough. Tell your parents we said hi!” Maple waves to the girl before teleporting back home with you, dad, and Gohan. You still can barely believe you did it. Super Saiyan... 3....Vegeta’s going to be SO pissed!>A. You’ve GOTTA tell Baozi about it! Make sure Vegeta knows, whenever he gets back to Earth>B. Chat it up with Cocoa and Lime, tell them all about it!>C. Maybe Auntie Trip and Mr. Piccolo can help you learn more about it>D. Actually... keep it on the down-low for now, until you have a handle on it>E. Something else?
>>2935668>B. Chat it up with Cocoa and Lime, tell them all about it!
>>2935668>E. Hmm, it's not what I'd call... worthwhile. It's too unstable, and draining. For now, anyway, it could get better.
>>2935673>>2935674Both of these.
>>2935668>B. Chat it up with Cocoa and Lime, tell them all about it!>E. Tell dad how the moment during the transformation felt, try to be detailed.>>2935674Also this.
>>2935709That's a good point too, also this.
>>2935668Back home, and after a large, satisfying meal, you talk with your dad about how you started to achieve the form, with mom listening in. She... does seem to find it a little reckless, but she knows Videl wouldn’t try to seriously hurt you. Still... “It’s now what I’d call, well, ‘worthwile’ just yet. It’s a lot of power, but I guess my stamina dropped like a rock once I stopped focusing on maintaining it. Really draining. Going to need a LOT more practice before I can get used to it.”“Ah don’t sweat it kiddo. That you reached that level on your own is something else.” Goku tells you, giving you a pat on the head.“The stamina issue worries me.” your mom adds in. “It might be more manageable with Fusion, but if it’s that draining, it could also shorten the time you could stay fused.”“What did you feel when you started to lose strength, Peppa?” your dad asks.“Just... this general feeling of exhaustion at first. Even when I reached it, my breathing was heavy. It only got worse from there, until soon I was just completely out of it, struggling to stand up straight.” You sit back on your couch, mom’s pet tiger snoozing beneath you. “I really did feel like I needed to actively maintain it.”“Maybe you could use it as a sort of finishing move.” Gohan suggests. “When you need just that extra bit of power to end something.”“Again, that stamina issue worries me. Even if you do use it like that, you’ll need to guarantee that your next move is the last one you need.” Maple chimes in again.“Plenty to think on, then.”(cont.)
>>2935794https://youtu.be/gUboafFkEQcIn the next couple days, you meet up with Cocoa and Lime at a small cafe in West City, Videl sending you a copy of the photo she took, cleaned up as much as she could. You also show them the picture of Giru you drew, telling them about the situation there. “Crazy space robots and you getting hair down to your ankles. Sometimes I wonder how you don’t end up going nuts from these crazy things you get up to, Peppa.” Cocoa comments to you, taking a sip of her drink. “Though... guess having extra long hair wouldn’t be too bad, if you could style it.”“Would be a total butt to manage though.” Lime adds in, twirling one of her braided twintails around with her finger. “And it’s just asking for someone to try and grab it when you’re off fighting.”“It WAS pretty heavy, might be able to use it to smack people with like I do my tail.” You take a sip of your drink this time. “Anything odd been up in your areas?”Cocoa rubs the back of her neck. “...Well, sort of. Pretty strange one. Don’t know if you’d believe it.”“Girl, try me.”“Ninja.”...“What?” you and Lime both exclaim to her.“There were ninja outside my house yesterday.” she states.>A. ...Like, typical garb and everything? TV ninja, or like, the ones the Red Ribbon Army used, or like... what? What were they even doing there?>B. That’s dumb. Ninja are dumb>C. Probably just a TV show crew, like that one what’s-its-name show...>D. Something else?
>>2935797>A. ...Like, typical garb and everything? TV ninja, or like, the ones the Red Ribbon Army used, or like... what? What were they even doing there?
>>2935797>A.Robots, ninjas, and Majins oh my
>>2935797>D. I have heard legend that they know the secret to attaining real ultimate power?
>>2935797Ninja. Actual ninja. “Like... typical garb and everything? Were they like, TV ninja, or the ones used by the Red Ribbon Army, or like... what? What were they even doing there?”“Imagination’s running wild again.” Lime tells her, unconvinced. “You’re close to the studios, aren’t you? Probably just some TV show.”“Ah yes, the ones that know the secret to REAL ultimate power.” you joke. “Learned through being the ultimate paradox.”Annoyed, Cocoa explains, “No crews or cameras were around, I’ve been keeping track of the filming schedules in my area. These were the real deal.”“With the REAL ultimate pow-”“The point is that they were just out in the open, looking for something.” Cocoa brings up her digital camera, going through pictures on it. “Here.”...Huh. Those are... well, stereotypical ninja. They seem to be searching for... something, you’d guess. Your eyes scan over every little detail in the image. Wait... wait a second... what’s that in one of their hands? You lean in closer... wh- th- THAT’S A DRAGON BALL!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #1... Paused>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2935897l got super pumped from all this talk about ninja.
>>2935897Oh man are we doing the Buu's Fury plot?
>>2935897Ah snap. I sleep through and find Peppa achieving ssj 3 and now ninjas. I suggest we work on SSJ 2 even more, to prepare Peppa's body for SSJ 3.
>>2926607Ah shit, this is missing the Six-Star dragonball.
I really hope it turns out the universe 6 tuffles were evil.
>>2936690Universe 2's is cool.
>>2936690But the Tuffles were always evil, anon.
>>2935897>>2936678Wait a second... NINJAS!
Hey Kato, did Vegeta and Shao ever actually hook up, or are they still not together?
>>2935902Remember, ninjas are mammals.>>2935912Guess you'll have to wait and see, won't ya?>>2936115Would be a good idea. And sorry you missed that.>>2936690Maybe the U6 Earthlings were the evil ones all along.>>2937350Exactly.>>2937520They haven't gotten married, but they are technically together.Okay, and with all that, we're back!>>2935897You keep scratching your head. A Dragon Ball... looks like the real deal, too. What on Earth are they even doing with it? Hrmn... you’ve still got the Four-Star ball at your house, so it should be safe there in case this is serious. You hand Cocoa back her camera, rubbing your forehead. Juuuust great. “Well, this just gets more and more complicated.”“If I see more I’ll be sure to let you know.” Cocoa states.“What even would they want with those things?” Lime asks.“Well they already have the secret to real ultimate power-” you start, but don’t continue after Cocoa glares silently at you. “...Could be anything, really. Wish some ninja grand master back to life, wish for immortality, wish for endless money, wish for panties-”“...Who... who would waste a magical dragon’s wish on panties?” Lime interrupts.“You don’t want the answer to that.” You start to jot down some notes on the paper you have out next to your drawing of Giru.Cocoa tilts her head, fidgeting in her seat a little. “...Say, Peppa, you’re still planning on entering the upcoming Tournament, right?”>A. Enter? I plan to win it, Cocoa! No Junior Division stuff this time!>B. I don’t really like all the changes they’ve been making, to be honest, but I can’t say I’m not interested>C. Given everything that’s going on, I might have to take a rain check on that...>D. Something else?
>>2937743>A. Enter? I plan to win it, Cocoa! No Junior Division stuff this time!We're gonna be a champion! Even if we gotta fight mom, dad and Chuu Lee! or that Vegeta!Also...all that zenni would be nice...
>>2937743>C. Given everything that’s going on, I might have to take a rain check on that...
>>2937743>A. Enter? I plan to win it, Cocoa! No Junior Division stuff this time!
>>2937743>A.Peppa is tuffest!And thanks Kato. How about Lapis and Chuu Lee? Tien and Launch? Got a little thing I wanna do for you.
>>2937799Lapis and Chuu Lee are still dating, but have been thinking on getting together. They don't have any kids yet. Tien and Launch don't have any yet either, but that might change.>>2937743Even with all that’s piling up, your mind was made up a LONG time ago. “Enter? Cocoa, I plan to WIN!” You pump your fist into the air. “No Junior Division to hold me back this time! Even if I have to fight mom, dad, Teach, or even that jerk Vegeta! I’ll show everyone I’m the tuffest there is!”“Even with all those changes they’re making to it?” Lime asks you. “Free-for all prelims, invitations for alien fighters, changing ring structure...”“All the more exciting!” you affirm.“Isn’t there supposed to be a 100 million Zenni prize for the winner, too?” Cocoa asks. “Coming out of the pockets of the patron, what’s his name... something Cash...”Oh, right. X.S. Cash, and his 100 million Zenni prize. “I mean, having that much money to throw around doesn’t hurt, but still, I wanna be the best!”Cocoa giggles. “Pretty confident there, Peppa. Still, I’ll be there cheering for you.”“Same! Kick some butt there, Peppa!” Lime adds in.You hug the both of them. “You two are the best, you know that?”They laugh with you... and then Cocoa gulps when she sees the time. “Oh no, oh no, damn it!”“What?”“I’ve only got 5 minutes before practice for my school play starts! Agh, I thought I had more time... I gotta go, Peppa. Guess I’ll have to apologize for being late...”Ah, right, her school is a good 20 minutes away by car.>A. You do remember I can fly, right? I’ll get you there in less than one>B. Mom could teleport you there instantly, you know. Lemme ask her>C. What’s the play you’re doing, again?>D. Something else?
>>2937907>A. You do remember I can fly, right? I’ll get you there in less than one>C. What’s the play you’re doing, again?>D. Ki sense the school area first, see if practice has started.
>>2937907>B. Mom could teleport you there instantly, you know. Lemme ask her>C. What’s the play you’re doing, again?
>>2937907I wonder if this Mr. X. will brainwash the winners of the tournament into helping him take over the world?
>>2937907Well... mom could get her there instantly, but mom might be busy at the moment. Besides, it’s only a short trip for you. “You do remember I can fly, right, Cocoa? Betcha I can get you there in less than one.” You stand up, taking one last sip of your drink. “Come on, let’s go!”“N-nothing above the speed of sound, please.” Cocoa requests.You stick your tongue out and head out of the shop, waving to Lime. While taller than you, the height difference isn’t AS pronounced as it is with Videl, so it’s not too awkward when Cocoa grabs on to you as you fly off. You ask her as you fly, “Remind me again, what was your school play about?”“It’s a the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, remember? I was trying for the role of Princess Kaguya. Might still keep it at this rate.”You slap your forehead. “Right, right, the alien princess thing.” Funny. You know at least like, three alien princes and yet not a single princess. Well, aside from the skunk lady, Towa. Does she even count anymore? Either way, she’s a butt. As you approach, you try to sense if there are any people down at Cocoa’s school. Hmm... looks like there are a few, but don’t think they’ve started yet....You also sense a group of people gathered some distance away. You glance over. A bank robbery. It’s not too close to Cocoa’s school, but still worryingly close. As you arrive and set her down, Cocoa gives you a hug. “Thanks, Peppa. You... have the time to watch?”You look over in the direction of the bank robbery. Feels like there are more cops closing in, and there’s at least one familiar presence headed in that direction.>A. I gotta do something. Sorry Cocoa. Good luck becoming a princess!>B. You might be able to knock some sense into the robbers and head back to Cocoa’s school if you’re quick...>C. No need to jump in like that, you’re not exactly a cop, Peppa. You can stay and watch>D. Ah, sorry, I need to head back home. Still got some training to do myself>E. Something else?
>>2938116>A. I gotta do something. Sorry Cocoa. Good luck becoming a princess!>E. But first, do you think wardrobe has anything I can use to...cover up my face? No need to get in trouble for vigilantism.
>>2938116>B.And this E. >>2938119
Okay then, roll me 2d20, best of three. DC is 12 for both.
Rolled 3, 13 = 16 (2d20)>>2938164
Rolled 17, 8 = 25 (2d20)>>2938164
>>2938116I don't really wanna assault anybody, can we focus on saving hostages instead?
>>2938116>C. No need to jump in like that, you’re not exactly a cop, Peppa. You can stay and watch
Rolled 6, 2 = 8 (2d20)>>2938164Gonna finish things up then if we're back working...
>>2938281Why not discuss this course of action more before committing to brutalizing some criminals illegally?
>>2938297I will agree with you that Peppa needs to be cautious.This was actually brought up to her before, but we've only suggested going there and being masked. No actual vote for combat has been made.
>>2938414Well, one guy voted B.Unless that's telling them a good knock-knock joke?
>>2938418This is true, but I'm sure Kato would've given us the option once we're on the scene. And now I kinda do wanna open with a knock knock joke.One with a pun worthy of King Kai.
>>2938297Just knock em out real quick with a chop to back of the neck like all animes do. I don't think anyone expects Peppa to go Doomguy on these guys.
>>2938436It's probably the Red Shark Gang.Which is a cooler name then Red Ribbon...but they lack any red sharks...
>>2938436Bear in mind, rawr Peppa's been focusing on "Going Further Beyond," getting into really intense spars with her family, some of the strongest beings out there.I think rolling to control her strength may be difficult.
>>2938453On the contrary, I think with all that experience both sparring at top form and interacting with normal humans almost all her life daily she probably has pretty good control of her Ki even if she likes to go Peppa Smash.
>>2938436Can't we just do the just thing and save any hostages and goods they're hoarding and leave them to get shot up by the police until there's only pulp where there was once living, breathing things?
>>2938476>>2938453Ki control would cover that. Peppa's been raised by ki control geniuses, she'd be fine.Unless poked them in SSJ 3. That may be an issue.Ooh! Can we add weight our head to prepare for the ssj 3 hair? ...also talk to uncle Raditz about hair management in combat...
>>2938482Man, now that I'm thinking about it, robbers would have a tough time without those goods and hostages.Peppa should become a crimelord!
>>2937743>Maybe the U6 Earthlings were the evil ones all alongBut then we don't get to see the shock on the U6 Saiyans faces when our version of their ultimate evil is a dorky mom who does poses.
Here's an idea: we disarm the robbers so they can't threaten any hostages.
>>2938668It's okay, it'll grow back.
Okay, since 4chan is no longer kill, I can put this bit to a vote:>A. Rescue Hostages>B. Knock out robbers>C. Disarm robbers
>>2938684>C. Disarm robbersChop off the arms.
>>2938684>C. Disarm robbersDisable them as well, have them tied up or whatever in the most embarrassing manner we can come up with.
>>2938684>A. Rescue HostagesAll Might would be disappointed in vigilantism.
>>2938684>C. Disarm robbers
Also Kato, are Chiaotzu and 19 dating?
>>2938684>A. Rescue Hostages
>>2938766Chiaotzu's no good with dates.
>>2938766Chiaotzu likes her but they aren't dating.>>2938116You look over to Cocoa innocently, clapping your hands together. “...Iiiii could, but before I do, favor, really quick?”She gives you a worried glance. “Before I say yes, does it potentially involve something dangerous?”“Nnnnot for me in particular?”Cocoa pinches the ridge of her nose. “...I’m going to regret this. What is it?”“If I could borrow just a few bits of the wardrobe, something to hide my face...” you ask her meekly.You can tell she wants to explain why that’s a bad idea, but a look over at her school causes her to shake her head. “Nothing expensive. Make it quick. DON’T. BREAK. ANYTHING.” She pokes you on the forehead as she emphasizes each word. “Clear?”“Crystal.” you affirm with the kindest smile you can manage.“If there’s a single scratch on anything I swear to God, Peppa...” Cocoa heads in, you stealthily sneaking in after her, heading to the dressing room. You spot a box of costume supplies, ones that you’re sure they won’t be using, and quickly throw together something. Plastic armor, dark sunglasses, bandanna, cape, okay, good to go!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdoiE-rWiKkDashing outside, you try to hide your Ki as much as you can. “Raio...-ken!” you declare, sparking away from the schoolgrounds and towards the bank robbery in-progress. The police are pinned down, the robbers, four panda-men in total, have some pretty heavy-duty weaponry, high caliber machine-guns. Well, not for long. Like a fierce gust of wind, you dash behind, under, and around each one and fire a tiny Ki blast at each firearm... and for good measure, remove their belts. With the weapons broken and their pants around their legs, the robbers’ bravado vanishes. They haven’t even noticed you’re here, perfect time to rescue the-Oh crap THAT was the presence you were feeling. Launch’s coming! Run run run run run! Raio-ken back to the school! You head back just quickly enough that Launch doesn’t catch you... you think. A quick sneak back into the dressing room again to change out of your getup, you then head over to the school’s auditorium. And right in time, too! You see Cocoa nervously take the stage, gulping, but once the spotlight’s on her, she seems to calm herself. She recites from her given script with ease, her dialogue sounding like it’s natural for her. It’s... honestly really impressive.Clapping starts as she finishes, both from classmates and from the faculty. You grin proudly at her, and she seems to notice, smiling back at you. Aaaand then you hear someone yell out from the dressing room, “Gyah! Damn static!”(cont.)
>>2938801Your grin becomes less prideful and more forcefully innocent. Cocoa still smiles, but her brows lower. Hey, you kept your word. Not a scratch. Staying a bit longer for the rest of her classmates to finish their bits of practice, Cocoa ends up coming over to you once they finish up. “What was it, exactly?”“Ah, just helping a few people out.” you state. It’s technically correct. The best kind of correct.Shaking her head, Cocoa walks out with you. “You could get in serious trouble for that kind of thing, you know...” she mumbles.“Son Peppa.” an older woman’s voice calls to you, a figure standing at the school’s front gate. One you recognize veeeery well. “Just what kind of thing is she talking about?”“H-hi Mrs. Launch...” Crap. She couldn’t have seen you, could she? “W-well, you see...”>A. I... just wanted to help a bit...>B. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again, promise>C. Fancy meeting you here! Is there any trouble, officer?>D. Something else?
>>2938805>C. Fancy meeting you here! Is there any trouble, officer?
>>2938801Ooh, why not a red wig and red contacts to disguise us? We can be known as Leaflette, and toss out glamour shots to the masses.
>>2938805>B.Welp, there goes our chance of being Tuffle-Girl. If we apologise maybe we can get out of this with just a warning....Tuffle eyes for good measure.
>>2938805>D. Selling math to grade-schoolers. These private school kids have a lot of dosh to deal out for simple algebra.
>>2938805>B. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again, promise
>>2938805“Faaancy meeting you here! Is there any trouble, officer?” See how much she knows. Don’t implicate yourself.Her eyes narrow. “The funniest thing, the Pistols for Pandas gang was down the street. There was a bank robbery in progress. But before I got there, looks like someone managed to disarm them...” She pulls up a notebook, checking over it. “And... pants them.”Cocoa turns her head toward you, squinting. You have to wonder, if their name is Pistols for Pandas, why did they have...? Wait, nevermind, just don’t think it out loud. “D-did they happen to catch who did that?”“Reports say there was a ‘tiny bolt of lightning’ that did it.” She closes her notebook. “Maple’s on the other side of the planet. Would you happen to know anything about this, Peppa?”Could try to weave a lie about taking up a tutoring job, selling math to... no, you’re enough hot water as-is. Your head lowers. Busted. “I’m sorry, I won’t do it again, I promise...”Launch sighs. “Kid, listen, I can understand jumping in there and trying to play hero like your mom and dad, but this isn’t really a game. They might not be able to hurt you, but if you take one wrong step, go a bit too far, not act quickly enough...” She closes her eyes. “I’ll let you off this time, kid. Just please, please, don’t make me repeat this conversation.”“Yes ma’am.”“And so ends your illustrious superhero career.” Cocoa comments.With a pout, you tell her, “Shush.”Launch pats you on the head. “Tell you what. Four years down the line, if you still want to do something like that, I’ll be more than happy to support you, kid. Until then though, no more vigilante justice, costumed or otherwise.”>A. Costume... wait, right! Cocoa, tell Launch about the ninja!>B. Officer Peppa, huh...? Might not be a bad idea when you’re older>C. Ah, probably wouldn’t do that well as a cop, but thank’s for that, Mrs. Launch>D. Something else?
>>2938958>D. "FUCK THE LAW">B. Officer Peppa, huh...? Might not be a bad idea when you’re older
>>2938958>A & B.
>>2938958>D. I have committed dishonor, does anyone have a Frisbee on hand?
>>2938958>A. Costume... wait, right! Cocoa, tell Launch about the ninja!>B. Officer Peppa, huh...? Might not be a bad idea when you’re older
>>2938958“Costume... wait, right! Cocoa, tell her about the ninja!”“...The what.” Launch mumbles out.Cocoa grabs out her camera, showing Launch the picture, with you emphasizing the Dragon Ball. “So you didn’t know anything about this?”“Not a thing. This does look suspicious though. I’ll write up a report of it back at the station, thanks for the tip, kids.”“Not a problem, Mrs. Launch!”She ruffles your hair. “And I do mean it about giving this a try when you’re older, kid.”“Officer Peppa, huh...? Might not be a bad idea when I’m all grown up.” You smile at Cocoa. “Bet I’d look pretty cool in uniform.”“Sorry, I can’t really picture it without holding back laughter.” she responds teasingly.You stick your tongue out at her. “Yeah yeah, you’ll see.”“Still, thanks for the help today, Peppa, and for sticking around for my part.”Grinning and with your tail swaying happily behind you, you tell her, “Aww, it’s nothing. And you WERE pretty good, I must admit. You’ll have that part in the bag.”“Thanks, Peppa. Good luck training for your Tournament.”You give her a thumb’s up. “Same to you. Just don’t be TOO surprised when I get declared the next Champion!”Launch laughs. “Don’t get too cocky, kid. You’re gonna have some tough competition for that title.”Thrusting both your fists into the air, you yell out, “Bring it on!”https://youtu.be/djps3pGVK1c>COCOA SOCIAL LINK 4: COMPLETE!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #1 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. This has been the first thread of Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Kai. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun? And tell me, how do y’all feel about this thread schedule? Friday through Monday work out for y’all? Longer, shorter? Lemme hear your thoughts on all this.
>>2939199This schedule works for me!
>>2939199Friday through Monday works for me! And definitely had fun, Peppa's great, I like the pace we're going at, and set-up has been interesting so far. Also, assuming that >>2938684 is Izumi, I made a little thing for you. Think these are all the major and related characters for Tuffle Quest. Scoured through a few of the old threads yesterday, only one missing a reference was Miguel, so had to guess on that one.
>>2939274Cocoa is the key to all of this.
>>2939289I did kinda have to just throw her in there, but I must admit I'm liking her already.
>>2939299That chart could be complicated/expanded further with rivalries.
>>2939199>Friday-mondayOh my entire work week....Eh. Who needs sleep when you got tuffle quest.
>>2939311Does Acer still have that rivalry with the frogman?
>>2939217>>2939274Glad to hear, and wow, thank you so much for that, anon! Only bits you're really missing are Chuu Lee being Videl, Peppa, and Gohan's Teacher and Trip's Lookout assistants, but covers quite a lot of it. This actually helps a lot, thanks again!>>2939299Glad to hear that, too.>>2939311Indeed, especially with what's to come.>>2939329Ah, sorry SwordAnon. I can also try to run longer a few times, but it'll only be the late threads on weekdays, provided I don't have to take a sick day.>>2939332Keep that in mind for down the line.
>>2939355>Keep that in mind for down the line.Right, we gather up some flies to distract him with.
>>2939355Would >>2938821 be a dumb disguise or so dumb it loops around back to smart?
>>2939355Oh damn it I forgot Mr. Popo.
>>2939355It's okay Kato, I'm just honestly glad to have Tuffle Quest back.I have so many DB related ideas...
>>2939360Hah.>>2939366I mean, you use any noticeable amount of Ki and people could tell it's you. Gohan would find it HILARIOUS at the very least.>>2939368It's okay anon, I appreciate all you put into it.>>2939377I'm glad to be running again, to be honest. Downtime helped me clear things up again and have more of a fresh start, even with all that went on over last summer. Plus I got to plan things out a bit more, went through some plot ideas and the like. Did have to do a few rewatches, was neat to pick up on some small details from Buu and the movies. Though GT is such a goddamn chore you guys.Also feel free to share any ideas y'all have. Any goals you have for Peppa? Gohan? Izzy?
>>2939417Goku vs Super 17, best fight scene or best fight scene?Why doesn't Goku ever use that ki absorption he used against Baby's Revenge Death Ball? Super 17 uses it against him every chance he gets.
>>2939420Don't get me started on some of the dumb things they do in GT. I'd be here all night. Free Bulma you useless Kai! She's the dangerous one!
>>2939417>Though GT is such a goddamn chore you guys.Please don't torture yourself Kato.>Also feel free to share any ideas y'all have. Any goals you have for Peppa? Gohan? Izzy?Peppa strong! Peppa fight for justice! Peppa the tuffest! But more seriously, I guess what I kinda want for Peppa is to feel like a decent successor to her parents, while still able to do her own things. Maybe when Super rolls around, she can decline an offer to become the next God of Destruction by Whis and instead say she wants to be the next God of Justice.Gohan so far I'd like to see him not really fall into some of the traps his uncle fell into, and be able to set out on his own and take charge when needed. Wouldn't mind if his hobby outside fighting ends up as Game Design or something. Was he disappointed in Metroid Other M too?Gonna need to see more on Izzy before jumping to any conclusions.
>>2939518Gohan should become the next King of the World. How? our MATCHMAKING
>>2939518Interesting ideas.>Was he disappointed in Metroid Other M too?It hasn't actually happened yet. Pantea especially would be livid.>>2939547I am amused.
>>2939518>Gonna need to see more on Izzy before jumping to any conclusions.Monster Taming?
>>2939564Or perhaps, studying the blade?
>>2939547She is pure anon, pls.>>2939553So there's a chance to prevent it?>>2939565I pick this one.Also Kato, Kato, got someone to pair Nappa with.
>>2939565But we all know it's gonna be Dragon Rider.
>>2939584Nappa's already big on the porn star scene. In fact, that's the title of his best work, "Big on the Porn Star Scene."
>>2939417Some actual DB ideas . Could Konpei pass the sacred crown's test? If so, I believe he'd better understand it too.Getting Piccolo to Red Eyed/Blue Eyed Namekian forms through God ki training, perhaps what Annin to help expand the small amount of god ki that Kami had. Training everyone in their base forms to match all their transformed states in terms of power level. Then focusing on master kaioken (getting to x100) and finding new ways to improve Raioken by itself. Raio-Ten mastery would be next, after mastering both separate forms. Then those with Kaio-Ten can use that as a better foundation to master that form to full power.For those with the ssj lines, we'll need to go back to SSJ and see where they can further improve even beyond full power. (Maximum SSJ? Strengthened SSJ?)Then SSJ 2 needs a complete overhaul for training to completely master, in order to prepare the user's for SSJ 3. Fusion training: Mastering the normal dance. To the point where everyone can fuse with everyone seamlessly. We need to learn the Ginyu Force's version too...Weapon Improvements: Quests for Melchior! Maybe even find his two buddies. Magic Scabard or...even a magic shield.
>>2940647>Magic Scabard or...even a magic shield.Phylactery so we can stop wasting wishes on getting rezzed.
>>2940897Ok Anon, I'll humor you. Pray tell how one makes a phylactery in the DB-universe? You got anything from the wiki, the filler, or even the videogames? Or hell, just Toriyama related stuff in general? Do you use a dragon ball and make a wish because that'd just be wasting a wish.We don't even know any type of magic that'd let us do that, and if we did it'd be on Towa's or her grandfather's level not our own.Our best bet is to do something like Baba and have permission/ability to move from the otherworld and back (Instant Transmission of course covers that but we technically don't have the permission.)So please anon. Do tell and be descriptive. Because I honestly feel like your just trolling for the sake of trolling.
>>2940965We die from defibrillation and before our soul can go to another dimension, we get someone to reverse mafuba our soul into a container. Then we defibrillate ourselves again!
>>2941000We should ask Piccolo for help.
Piccolo did put his soul into all of his sons. Theoretically, if he died, he could live through any one of his sons. Since Piccolo had no experiences with Namekians, I suppose that he learned soul manipulation up on Kami's Palace, back when he was purifying his original soul.
>>2941000>>2941010>>2941071Training from Piccolo, and learning soul magic would be useful. I do support that. Not in making horcruxes, instead as a prevention method against soul swapping or other people using spirit magic on us. I do imagine necromancy beyond what Baba does is rare though.
>>2941178Will Maple finally be able to play "Hide the Soul"?
>>2939553Any other videogame tidbits you mind sharing with us? Any arcade games and the like that are interesting? RPGs? Fighters? Does Chrono Break exist?
>>2941703Here's a videogame tidbit: They're for geeks, dorks, and nerds who don't get out as often as they should.
>>2941730That from personal experience?
Idea for new Ultimate skill for Peppa:After we learn Instant Transmission, combine it with the Power Pole Combo and Wind magic. Barrage of teleporting boosted strikes via Power Pole, like this.
>>2939555>>2939563>>2939564>>2939565>>2939585Those are some interesting ideas.>>2939584Hah. Perhaps. And that's... an interesting choice, anon.>>2940647Not much left to get out of the crown.Might be a good idea for Piccolo down the line.Going to be really hard to do, Kaio-Ten is already Kaio-ken x100.Full Power Super Saiyan is already a thing that several Saiyans have been able to do.Super Saiyan 2 does have a stronger variant, but it takes excessive training or excessive trauma to reach.Fusion training like that would take a very long time.Magic scabbard might be a good idea.>>2940897Liches get stitches.>>2941703The Kart Racer from the Super manga exists. It has customizable avatar characters, karts, and lots of truly insane high-level tricks.Chrono Break coming Age 775.>>2942540Stop reading my notes anon. But truly, not a bad idea.
>>2943518Updated that chart, Kato. Think I got most everyone down this time.
>>2943546Wow, thanks again anon! That really is a lot of help.
Real hot, unpopular opinion: Do we really need to do the whole super sentai/Saiyaman thing with Peppa? She doesn't seem like the kind of person to hide behind a mask or worry about people knowing that she kicks ass like canon Gohan. Nor is this a world where superman exploits were as hidden as in canon. Dunno, it just seems kind of forced to really go down that road.
>>2943553Glad to help, Kato!>>2943570Honestly, I can agree. Had our fun with costumed superhero antics, but Launch told us to not do it again. Besides, other things to focus on, like Super Saiyan 3.>>2942540I am 100% supporting this idea.
>>2943546This isn't including time traveling children, right?
>>2943655Nah, those are their own can of worms.Future Gohan Red and his timeline, Trunks and his brother from the other Path to Power timeline, and Bra from the more Canon-like timeline. And the whole Time Patrol.
I wonder if Peppa could do a Halloween Volleyball match?
>>2943675The Mexican Tier Listing is still one of my favorite recent Dragon Ball memes.
