You defeated a group of nefarious Air Pirates with Izzy and uncle Acer, capturing a trio of ninja in the process! However, Cocoa is kidnapped not long after, and only thanks to some quick thinking are you able to rescue her. After some last-minute bits of training, the World Martial Arts Tournament is finally here, with old and new foes alike lurking in the shadows. Can you claim the title of Champion while fending off these hidden foes? Good luck, Peppa!
>>3063507The sign-ups go through without much incident. From the looks of things the Prelims will have a total of 160 fighters, Earthling and alien alike. To your, and nearly the whole Earth’s collective surprise, even Kuriza has arrived, with plans to enter the Tournament himself. A couple unusual, elf-like aliens also seem to have entered, ones who seemed to know Piccolo in some way, given his reaction to spotting them. But aside from Basilea, you haven’t actually seen too many suspicious individuals among those who’ve signed up... yet, at least.Which makes what you’re about to do feel just a small bit more unnerving. You walk with mom, Tien, and Keli towards the Durian Hotel. Your eyes trail an airplane as it heads down towards the nearby airport. You feel something familiar up there... but can’t quite put your finger on what.“Are you sure about this, Peppa?” your mom asks you quietly.A quick nod affirms it. “I don’t want to take any more risks, so I’ll hand the Dragon Ball over alone. I do want you guys watching over me, but keep your distance.”‘And keep our eyes open for any individuals that leave with it.’ Tien comments telepathically. ‘Does seem like a solid plan.’‘Eyes, ears, noses, everything you can potentially sense out. Are Lao and Bisa still back at the hotel your students are staying at, Tien?’‘From what I can tell, yes.’ he affirms.Keli looks away, biting her lip. ‘Still holding out hope we’re wrong about them.’‘Maybe we are. But even if we aren’t, they could be targets themselves. As could you, Keli.’ Tien tells the three of you.Hesitantly, the silver-haired woman seems to ask you all in return. ‘...How are you certain I’m not one of them? I could still be a suspect too, you know. Leading you all with breadcrumbs while I try to gauge what your plans are and earn your trust to pull off whatever the ninja are planning?’>A. Well, at the very least, I trust you, Keli>B. Simple: you don’t fit the profile and timeline of everything that’s gone on>C. Well... are you?>D. Something else?
>>3063512>D. Well, the last guy... girl? I interrogated said they weren't in league with any demons, so I reckon they would be very pro-Earth and look down on demons of any sort.Hey Kato, I hope today we can have a fun session!
>>3063512>>A. Well, at the very least, I trust you, Keli>>B. Simple: you don’t fit the profile and timeline of everything that’s gone onHey Kato, had a good thanksgiving?
>>3063512>>A. Well, at the very least, I trust you, Keli
>>3063512Hi Kato! Looking forward to today!>B.But then,>A.We did have that heart to heart after all.
Shit, 4chan X ain't working.
>>3063554We 4channel now.
>>3063528>>3063533>>3063543Thanks, anons! And yes, had a good Thanksgiving.>>3063512You smile. ‘Couple reasons. First, you don’t quite fit the profile or timeline of what all has happened. Sure, you could be a suspect still. But you’re not a likely one. Especially given your relationship with Melee. Last ninja we interrogated pretty heavily implied that they don’t work with any demons.’‘Well... you’ve got me there.’ Keli admits. ‘Could be lying, though.’‘Could be. Probably isn’t. Besides...’ You look right at her. ‘I trust you, Keli. For all that’s worth, I don’t think you’re one of them.’She smiles back. ‘Thanks, kid.’You hold out your hand for the Dragon Ball. “Welp. Let’s get this over with.”Maple hands it to you. “Stay safe, Peppa.”With a nod, you march forward into the hotel lobby. You glance around for a bit, seeing a few tourists from around the world, and even some from beyond, chatting and conversing. Carefully you walk forward, sensing around for anyone approaching you, and anyone suspicious in general. Your eyes travel up to the lobby’s clock. It strikes midnight. Footsteps approach you as you smell a vague hint of banana.“You have kept your word, then.” a man’s voice calls out. You turn around. That blue ninja... though he’s in slightly different clothes this time around. Some distance away is the ninja frog you met earlier.“So long as you keep yours, I’ll give you the Dragon Ball.” you tell him, gripping the Four-Star Ball tight.“We shall. We have no need for any further confrontations like that.” He holds his hand out.>A. Give him the Dragon Ball>B. First, why do you need them? What is this “Warrior?” We don’t have to be enemies, just let us help>C. Can I get you to guarantee the safety of young Baozi too?>D. Don’t think that you’ll be able to get the last one, Tien’s made sure of it>E. Something else?
>>3063575>E. Why do you smell like a fruit?
>>3063575>B. First, why do you need them? What is this “Warrior?” We don’t have to be enemies, just let us help"You seem to have a problem with my Mother and her friends. Can you at least explain why?">C. Can I get you to guarantee the safety of young Baozi too?>A. Give him the Dragon Ball
>>3063575You take a cautious step forward. “I’ll hand it over, but look... why do you really need them? What do you gain from this ‘Warrior’ I keep hearing about? We don’t have to be enemies here.” He’s silent. You take another step forward. “I know you guys have something against my mother and her friends... can you at least give a reason why?”“She knows why.” He starts to move forward too. “But if you really need to know, consider this: is raw strength the only way to protect this world?”You stop and tilt your head. “Well... no, I-”His eyes narrow as he interrupts you, “Then that is all you need to know. The Dragon Ball, now.”“...Guarantee the safety of Baozi too.” you demand. “I don’t want him caught up in-”“You are in no position to make such a demand.” he interrupts again. “But, I can say that someone else has already done that. The Dragon Ball. Now.”Someone else? Wait, what? Your eyes grow wider. Agh, he’s doing this on purpose. Damn it. Now you’ve got more questions, but you know he isn’t going to answer any. You hand him the Ball. “You still smell like bananas.”“...Good luck in your Tournament, child.” He then heads off with the Dragon Ball.And as he does, Maple contacts you. ‘Momma Bird to Ghost Pepper, visual on target confirmed, over.’‘Ghost Pepper here, copy that, where’s he headed, Momma Bird?’You try to keep watch on him.‘Heading out to towards the airport, over.’Airport. Could he be...?>A. Let’s trail them!>B. Leave them be for now, put this all behind you and head back to your hotel for rest>C. Tien, Keli, he said that someone else is guaranteeing the safety of Baozi>D. Something else?
>>3063661>C. Tien, Keli, he said that someone else is guaranteeing the safety of Baozi
>>3063661>C. Tien, Keli, he said that someone else is guaranteeing the safety of BaoziHis parents?>A. Let’s trail them!Though maybe Peppa shouldn't since they might have eyes on her?
>>3063661>C.>A.Trail behind but keep visual. Hide Ki!

>>3063766He's always been evil, we fed gods to him.But I know a dance that might just turn our luck around: https://youtu.be/AauAyjBxaIQ
>>3063661You start to head forward, trying to follow their trail. ‘Tien, Keli, he told me that someone else is guaranteeing Baozi’s safety! This could give us another lead, let’s trail behind them best we can!’‘Someone else...? Wait, have they targeted Shao too?!’ Keli exclaims. ‘I’m heading back, I’m going to check up on her.’‘Momma Bird here, visual on target, trailing them.’ your mother tells you.You hide your Ki and start to follow far behind them as they continue to walk towards the airport. You stay some distance away from mom and Tien, to give them, and yourself, an alibi should they encounter you again. They head into a crowd, and while you can keep track of them for a bit... you eventually lose them as they head closer into the airport. Agh! No, you’re so close! You snap your fingers.“So you managed to do it too.” a familiar girl’s voice comments close by you as you get a familiar scent and sense. You turn quickly. “Hey Peppa! Well, nuts, there goes my attempt to surprise you tomorrow. But hey, couldn’t sense you either.”“Cocoa?!” Wait... it was probably her parents that you were sensing. “You came in tonight?”She nods. “We just arrived a little bit ago. What are you doing here?”“Ninja.” you tell her quickly, then try to look around again.“So, didn’t come all this way because you sensed me coming?” she teases, poking you in the arm.“Well, guess that’s just my luck.” you stick your tongue out at her. At the same time, you try to keep in contact with Maple. ‘Ghost Pepper to Momma Bird, lost visual on target, over.’‘Momma Bird here, we’ve got visual still! They’re meeting with someone, over.’Okay good. Good. Not a total loss. “So, you really did come all this way for me, huh?”“Hah, Duh. I said I’d be here to cheer you on.” Cocoa replies with a laugh. Her parents wave to her from nearby. “Well, we probably have to check in with our hotel soon. I’ll see you tomorrow, Champ!”>A. Would you mind me escorting you guys over there, just in case?>B. See you tomorrow, Cocoa. Stay safe!>C. Keli, is Shao okay?>D. Momma Bird, status on ninja nonsense?>E. Something else?
>>3063780>A. Would you mind me escorting you guys over there, just in case?>E. Greet Mr. and Mrs. Amaguri with all our politeness.
>>3063780>C.And backing >>3063787
>>3063780>>C. Keli, is Shao okay?>A. Would you mind me escorting you guys over there, just in case?
>>3063780You walk with her, asking, “Actually, would you mind if I escort you guys there, just in case?”The girl and her parents look at you curiously. “Do you think we’d need it?” her father asks.“It’s just really crowded here, lot of people around. Best to stay close to someone you know.” you explain, then bow to the two of them. “And greetings, Mr. and Mr.s Amaguri. It is good to see you both again.”“Thank you, but no need to be so modest, Peppa.” Cocoa’s mom tells you.“Well, mom always tells me it’s best to be polite to your elders.” you affirm.The man nods. “Good that she does. And if you think we need it, I wouldn’t mind.”Cocoa pokes you in the cheek. “Still, no need to be so protective, Peppa.”“Too bad, you’re stuck with me now.” you respond teasingly. As you walk with them, the three surprised by the variety of visitors in the area, you get in contact with Keli. ‘Is Shao okay? Anything up?’‘Shao and Baozi are fine, but Lao and Bisa have gone off and I can’t sense either of them in the area!’...Both of them have left? At the same time? Crap. This isn’t good. You stay close to Cocoa and her parents, even offering to help them carry their luggage. “So are you guys in the hotel close by? Durian Hotel?”“Indeed we did. Was a good package deal.” her father tells you. “Guess we did ruin part of the surprise, though.”“Part?” you repeat.“Dad! Hey!” Cocoa grumbles out, pouting and blushing.“Oh come now sweetie, you were so excited on the way here, I’m suprised you’re not jumping at the chance to show her already.” her mother adds.“MOM!” Cocoa protests as her face reddens more, the four of you finally reaching the hotel. “You two are impossible!”>A. I can wait for the surprise until tomorrow, Cocoa. Sleep well!>B. Okay, gotta know now. What’re you hiding?>C. Check with mom and Tien on what they’ve found, they still have them in their sights, right?>D. Something else?
>>3063878>D. I like surprises, tell me! No wait, don't tell me!>A. I can wait for the surprise until tomorrow, Cocoa. Sleep well!
>>3063878>A. I can wait for the surprise until tomorrow, Cocoa. Sleep well!It'd be good to have a nice surprise. >C. Check with mom and Tien on what they’ve found, they still have them in their sights, right?>D. Hide our ki like the ninjas. It's also a good way for our competition who can sense ki to practice looking for ninjas. maybe tell Mom that Ghost Pepper is going...stealth mode?
>>3063575>>3063661>work out possible probing for weeks>missed itARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH>>3063878>C.Should probably keep up with what's going on, just in case. No sense in being the world champ if the world explodes in a year.
>>3063878You giggle a little. “I think that’s all the teasing you need tonight. And I do like my surprises, so I think I can wait until tomorrow. Sleep well, Cocoa!”With a sigh of relief, she tells you, “Thank you, Peppa. You too, I’ll be cheering for you in the stands!”“You won’t be able to miss us, count on it.” her mother adds.You wave goodbye to them as you lower your Ki, then get into contact with mom and Tien. ‘Ghost Pepper to Momma Bird, status on ninja nonsense? Over.’‘Momma Bird here, ninja the final Dragon Ball! Suspect is hiding their Ki and has masked their presence complete- No! No damn it! He’s running! Ghost Pepper, suspect headed due east! I’ll do my best to follow, Tien is going back to his students to head him off!’This might be your last chance... can you do it?>A. Heading out to intercept! Keep me notified on the details>B. Trail but do not engage, just catch a glimpse of him if you can>C. Mom and Tien can handle him, don’t get in their way>D. Something else?
>>3063998>A. Heading out to intercept! Keep me notified on the details>D. Hidden Raioken! Blackbird mode!
Before we vote, can anyone tell me what our objective is?
>>3063998Fffffff-If we go A, that might give more answers, but B is probably easier.Screw it!>A.>>3064016Catch another (potential) ninja and finally get some answers?
>>3063965Sorry for starting so early, anon. Was a bit sooner than the last few weeks.
>>3064027None of the ninja have talked, they would rather die.
>>3063998>B.Not that there will probably be differences between immediate engagement and keeping back, but it's probably easier.>>3064016For me? Ideally confront and talk down the ninjas from using the Dragon Balls using the well-being of the planet as an argument. Failing that, a throw down is probably necessary.>>3064031It's cool, there may be other chances. That's part of the fun.
>>3064027B would be closer to catching them in the act, A would be another attempt at making them talk that hasn't worked so far but may work.
>>3063998>>3064040>>3064051Actually you do raise a good point. Going to change it to >B.
>>3064051Isn't the act already blown if he's running?
>>3064061He's running away with that macguffin to fulfill their dream. What's their dream? I wanna find out.
>>3063998Woo, 4chan X is back, baybeeeeee!!!>B. Trail but do not engage, just catch a glimpse of him if you can

>>3063998https://youtu.be/xGcoY5EmMMo‘Ghost Pepper here, going to trail him, over and out!’ You start dashing along the streets in the direction your mother pointed, keeping your Ki as low as possible and your movements as quiet as you can. You follow the most logical path to him, then find a place to hide as you notice a figure approach.Someone in a hooded cloak, his face is well-covered... wait. Wait is he... the Multi-Form! He splits into three people, each one heading in a different direction as your mom follows some distance behind him. Two of them seem to vanish into the night... and the third one moves in close to where you’re hiding. You keep silent, still, and as hidden as you can manage. He... doesn’t notice you! He then tosses aside the cloak as he starts to head out... and you see it finally confirmed.Lao.But... it’s odd. He clearly doesn’t have the Dragon Ball with him. And there’s this... depressed look on his face. He shakes his head, braided ponytail swaying behind him. You even hear him mutter, “It’s for them. They’ll be safe. It’s over now. This doesn’t matter anymore.” He looks in the direction of Tien’s group. You next hear him state under his breath, “I did the right thing... I did the right thing...”...You let Tien know what you see and hear as Lao walks away slowly... each step seeming like it takes a heavy toll on him. Tien responds to tell you that he’s prepared.>A. Follow Lao>B. Confront Lao and let him know the jig is up>C. This is in Tien’s hands now, you can wait until morning tomorrow to hear the details>D. Something else?

>>3064205You quietly follow him, staying silent, sticking to the shadows, and keeping your Ki low. Lao keeps walking along slowly, shaking his head, occasionally trying to tell himself again and again that he’s done the right thing. You... don’t smell anything unusual, actually. But you feel this sense of unease from him.When he gets to the hotel the Crane School is staying at, Tien is outside, ready to confront him. Lao looks up, his shoulders slouch, but he seems to keep a stern face. “Master.” he greets Tien.“Shao told me that you had gone somewhere on your own. Can you tell me what you were up to?”“I had to give someone a gift.” he states calmly, keeping his face stern. It seems to be all that needs to be said to confirm the suspicions.“...Why did you do it?” Tien asks him.Lao’s back stiffens, but he stays calm. “Because I would do what it takes to keep family safe, Master.”Slowly the triclops walks towards him. “...How long has this been going on?”“Long enough that I know the danger is real.” He shakes his head. “All that matters to me is that they’re safe.”“Who else is involved?”Lao’s reply is not what you expect. “I do not know.”Tien sighs loudly. “Where is Bisa?”“Meeting his girlfriend, I’d guess. He wasn’t the one who approached me.” Lao starts to move forward. ...Girlfriend? You narrow your eyes and try to listen closer. Tien’s serious glare almost petrifies Lao. “Who did?”“The individual has always been masked. I know it’s one of ours, I just have never found out who.”“Why didn’t you tell anyone sooner?” Tien demands.“Because I know what they would do.” Lao passes by him. “...I would never put any member of my family in jeopardy. Now, they are safe.”>A. Keep listening>B. You’ve heard enough. Head back to mom>C. Step in and ask him something (what?)>D. Something else?
>>3064347>A. Keep listening>D. Keep a lookout for anyone coming by.
>>3064347>A. Keep listening
>>3064347Conventional wisdom says to keep listening, but I just can't.>C. Step in and ask him about what he has done for the ninjas.>C. Ask Lao about what he has found out independently.
>>3064347>“The individual has always been masked. I know it’s one of ours, I just have never found out who.”Lao you need to work on your ki sensing then.
>>3064380Supporting this.>>3064382That's kinda the problem though isn't it? Ninja hiding their Ki.
>>3064380Possible Add-On, ask if Tien minds Peppa interrupting. Lao is his student after all, but punishing the one who got used doesn't help us.
Hey, what if it's Tien?
>>3064347There’s so much you want to ask. All the answers might just be RIGHT THERE, at last... but this is still Tien’s student. And they’re having an important convesation. You keep quiet and listen further, staying aware of those around you. “Master... now what you know, what will you do?”Tien stares quietly at Lao for half a minute. “What do you plan to do? Leave us and never show your face again, or attempt to make up for what you’ve done?” He turns and places his hands behind his back. “If you take the former path, leaving us to join with them or even striking out on your own, I may come to regret not keeping a closer watch over you. If you take the latter path, you put my entire school at risk... but you also give a chance for redemption.”“So long as Shao and Baozi are safe, I care not what path I take.” Lao states clearly.The both of them are quiet for a full minute and a half, and you realize that they’re conversing telepathically, masking it under the tension this conversation has been under. Tien brings his arms down. “I see. Lao, do you truly believe what you did is right?”“Would you do the same for those you care about, Master?”Tien’s eyes close. “I would not go to these lengths. But... we are both human, mortal, fallible. Go inside. We will discuss this again soon.”You hear footsteps, then immediately look in the direction of them. It’s... Bisa? He looks... strangely happy. Narrowing your eyes, you notice lipstick marks on his cheek... and neck... and collarbone. Oh. Okay. He seems to freeze like a deer in headlights when he spots the other two men standing there. “Ah, Master, Lao. Uh... this... I can explain!”Tien simply glares at him and then nods for him to head in with Lao. “Both of you, inside, get your rest.” As they do, you see Tien turn back to your direction. Telepathically, you hear, ‘Thank you for your help, Peppa. And for not interrupting that.’‘Y-you know I’m-?’‘I can tell you’re in the area since you were trailing him earlier. Not sure exactly where, so I must say I’m impressed you’ve been able to mimic their stealth so readily. Lao told me that their goal seems to learn from an ancient warrior a method to pacify threats without escalating power further... or something to that effect. This “Warrior” may be both an individual, and a path they intend to learn from him. I will tell everyone more on this when we have more information.’ Tien bows in your direction. ‘Thank you again.’‘Thank you, Tien.’You sit back slightly in your little hiding place. What a night this has been.>A. Better get some sleep or you’ll be all cranky when you fight tomorrow>B. Sleep can wait, need to start getting to the bottom of this, pronto!>C. Tien, do you really believe Lao can redeem himself for this?>D. Something else?
>>3064542>A. Better get some sleep or you’ll be all cranky when you fight tomorrow>D. Make sure to grab a snack so our stomach doesn't wake us.
>>3064533That's one of those 'we've got a bigger problem' here situations. Like if Keli and Melee were involved. Better not to think about.>>3064542Lao a good boy. Tien a good master.>A.>D. Thank Tien for his continued assistance throughout the process.
I wonder. Will we meet Dream Peppa?
>>3064627We see Dream Peppa every time we look in the mirror.
>>3064542>>3064562This. But also... remind him that in the end we're little better than Lao, even if we did it above board.
Also while I'm thinking about it, if we get to the point where they try to summon the dragon and can't, we modify the whole corruption of the dragon balls story to result in them eventually failing to work instead of exploding into evil.
>>3064658Haha, I should have kept the part in there about thinking hard about what differences there were between Peppa and Lao's decisions. I figured it would be too much.
>>3064658I don't follow.
>>3064662Longer time turned to stone to regenerate? Two years instead of one, three, four?Let's us not rely on them and keeps them out of everyone's hands longer.And prevents shadow dragons.
>>3064665Lao, at the very least, assisted the ninja is getting Dragon Balls to keep Shao and Baozi safe.Peppa exchanged two balls for Cocoa's safety.
>>3064670Use the whole negative energy story as is, but say the problem is that the negative energy conflicts with the normal energy and keeps it from functioning. We supposedly had no idea when it would happen or what the effect would be, which isn't far from the truth. The negative energy being a universe ending threat if extracted remains unchanged.
>>3064542‘Glad everything’s working out, then. Think he can redeem himself for this?’Tien seems to smile. ‘Compared to what I have done? I would say he could.’‘Then thanks again for helping so much with this, even in spite of how difficult it must have been for you.’‘Think nothing of it. This is a Crane School matter too, after all. You should get your rest, Peppa.Best of luck in the Tournament tomorrow.’ Tien walks off, giving a quick wave.You know what? Yeah, he’s right. Best to rest up and be ready for tomorrow. You lock on to mom’s Ki and teleport to her, giving a brief rundown on what all happened. Aaaaand you look around to get a quick bite to eat, having a bite of steak to help you rest comfortably. You get into bed and start to rest comfortably. You’ve got a big day ahead.The day you’ll become Champion.https://youtu.be/dwLzUK3Ej68“Come on, come on! We’ll be late!” you yell out excitedly, almost skipping on your way off the bridge to the island platform where the Tournament is taking place. You look around at the massive stadium crowds, and the equally huge viewscreens near them. They spared no expense in making this look as impressive as possible, and looks like all visitors, alien and Earthling alike, are just as impressed by it.“Sis we won’t be late, calm down.” Gohan bemoans.You all head in to the central pillar with the rest of the fighters, when a man in a black suit and sunglasses runs over to your group. “GOKU! MAPLE! ACER! Ahaha, and there’s both our current Champ AND our Junior Champ! Haha, guys, so good to see you all again!”“Been way too long, hasn’t it?” your dad asks him with a laugh.“How’s it been?” Acer asks the man.“Man you wouldn’t believe it. The whole Ozotto thing a few years ago sorta drained us from funds, but suddenly Mr. Cash comes along and wants to make the whole thing even bigger than ever.” He makes a few jabs into the air. “Oooh I can’t wait to see how you all have improved, especially the little ones over here.”>A. Thanks, Mr... uh... crap don’t think I ever got your name, sir>B. By the end of the day, the “Junior” part of my title is going to be gone. You’re looking at the next Champion!>C. Check around for a bit, see all the fighters that have gathered here>D. Something else?

>>3064710Exactly my point. Sinister machinations are at work. The wheel of fate begins to turn again...
Wonder what this quest would be like if people were only allowed to select one option?
>>3064682You grin and start to bow. “Thanks, Mr... Mr... uh...” Oh. Crap. “Um, my apologies, I don’t think I ever really got your name, sir.”“Huh? Oh, it’s Ken. Well that’s nice of you, Junior Champ.” He pats your head. You briefly notice a number of your group mumble out “Oh,” like they didn’t know already. Weird.“Heh, by the end of the day you’re gonna have to scratch that ‘Junior’ part from my title, Ken!” You thrust your fist into the air. “You’re looking at the next Champion!”“Now that’s the spirit!” Ken praises.Glancing around, you see a number of familiar fighters, and even more new ones. “Man, there really are a lot of people around.”“Not the highest it’s been, but certainly the most diverse group, given all the aliens that have joined up.” your mom comments.You place your hands behind your head as your tail sways behind you. “Hey, Mr. Ken, any standouts for you? Old and new.”“Well, we’ve already got a bunch of Champions here...” He motions to your group. “Buuuut that guy over there looks pretty neat. Is he another guy like Piccolo?”“Oh yeah, that’s Nail, one of his planet’s best warriors. Same race as Piccolo, yeah.” Maple comments.“Ah, make sense, makes sense.” Ken responds. “And who’s the little girl over there? With the pale skin?”“Oh hey 19 did make it.” Acer states. “She’s pretty tough.”“Weird name.” Ken comments.“Well, what kind of name is ‘Cash’ anyway?” you ask.“Really wealthy dude, that’s for sure. Apparently he wanted to have a Tournament like this for his son’s 10th birthday, but given Ozotto and everything, he opted to get the boy a planet instead.”You do a double-take and ask, “Planet?”“Indeed. One of the few my father did not go about his usual practices in acquisition. Uninhabited world, not much in the way of scenery. But a decent gift for a 10 year old boy.”You look behind you. “Kuriza! Buddy! How’ve you been?”The boy rolls his eyes as he stands with most of the Ginyu Force. “Hello again, Peppa.” He then looks over to your mom. “Mrs. Maple, Mr. Goku, good to see you both in good health.”“Hey there!” Goku greets.“Well, looks like we’ve got another fun visitor here.” Ken checks his clipboard. “Ah, there you are. Welcome to the World Tournament, Mr. Kuriza!”“Pleasure. Come along, men.” Kuriza walks forward, with the red, blue, purple, and pink aliens beside him.“Huh, no Guldo?” Maple asks aloud.“Chiaotzu! Buddy!” you hear a voice cheer out.“There’s Guldo.”(cont.)
>>3064808You keep looking around. You again see a group of girls near Baba’s usual fighters. A wolf girl, a vampire girl, a ghost girl, a mummy girl, and even a kinda like... zombie? Wait, no, Frankenstein’s monster! “Hey, who are they, Ken?”“Hm? Oh, looks like they’re part of Baba’s new recruits. From a school of spooks.” He checks his clipboard again.“Sibella, Elsa, Winnie, Tanis, and Phantasma. I’ve met them a few times at Baba’s Palace.” your mom adds in. “Surprised they’re taking part in this.”A sudden chill goes down everyone’s spines as you feel another fighter approach. An alien with a red hood and purple jumpsuit, blueish skin and a tail. And beside him... Basilea in her disguise. Ken gulps. “Ah, Mr. Ledgic, and... Devil Mask.” He steps back as he reads the girl’s pseudonym, recalling her from last time all too well. “H-hello.”“...Ledgic.” your mom calls out, the alien glancing at her and glaring.>A. Check for that mark, see if he’s got the “M” symbol still>B. Better be ready for a beatdown, Basilea!>C. Check around some more, see what else is out here>D. You should head in, plenty more fighters to face in the prelims anyway>E. Something else?
>>3064808>“Huh? Oh, it’s Ken. Well that’s nice of you, Junior Champ.” He pats your head. You briefly notice a number of your group mumble out “Oh,” like they didn’t know already. Weird.Ha, you've been reading.
>>3064808Oh hey, you've read Monkey Queen too, Kato?>>3064809>A, B, C.Make sure everyone knows about Ledgic being here.
>>3064809>C. Check around some more, see what else is out here
>>3064809>AYa know, Ledgic always seemed like the honorable mercenary type. Shame if he willingly gave our to Babadi.>B. "Then you can unveil your origin story!">C. >D. Keep an eye out for Kougeki or anyone with orange hair and green skin.
>>3064815>>3064825Seriously, y'all pick too many things.
>>3064813>>3064815Been reading bits of it when I get the chance. Pairing Goku up with a feisty redhead that has a speed-boosting transformation, huh? Quite the coincidence.
>>3064829It's not that many.>>3064830Neat, I only found out about it like a month ago myself.
>>30648743/5 is a lot, aaaand>>30648254/5 is a lot.
>>3064809>those ghouls>mfwStill so happy to see them.>A.>D.The only fighters that matter right now are the ones who make it through the preliminaries.
>>3064888Well atleast they didn't bring him. Shaggy is way too powerful for us.
>>3064919Any or none.
>>3064877But it's not that *often*>>3064902Well obviously, ultra instinct is a long ways off to introduce
>>3064809You try to glance under Ledgic’s hood before he heads on forward. It’s brief... but you do see the edges of that “M” symbol on his head. He and Basliea move forward, but before they’re gone, you call out to them, “ Better be ready for a beatdown, Basilea! Because I’m not the only one who can kick your butt!”She looks back and glares at you through her mask. “...I am going to make you beg for the pain to stop.”“Not when I kick your butt out in the prelims!” You blow raspberries at her.Basilea stomps forward, growling. Ken rubs the back of his neck. “Man, really hoping that we don’t have any more incidents like last time.”“We’ll do everything we can to prevent it.” Maple affirms.“Best we get a move on, isn’t it?” Izumi asks.You keep looking around, but walk forward with everyone. No sign of any aliens like Kougeki... which makes Basilea’s presence here all the more odd. What could he be doing? Hrmn... well, there’s Tien’s group and Guldo, though minus Shao. And not far behind them are Vegeta and Nappa. As you enter into the main waiting area, you see even more fighters. All 160 fighters are here.(cont.)
>>3065024https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4gL0zINJBoKen heads into a platform in the center, which raises even further, screens around the area flickering on. “LLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN, EARTHLINGS AND ALIEN PARTICIPANTS! WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE 27TH WORLD MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT!” he yells out excitedly. You hear cheering outside. “We bring you all here today to see the best of the best, not just across Earth, but across the entire cosmos! Who will stand among all those gathered here today to win the title of Strongest Under the Heavens?!”The cheering grows louder. “Heh, guess it’s a bit more fitting this time around, given the new competitors.” Acer comments.“This Tournament has two phases: first, a preliminary round among all contestants! All will be divided among these 10 platforms by lot, and the top 16 of among them will head off to the Finals after a brief break, from there taking part in single elimination bouts in 8 different domed rings!”The screens highlight each of the various platforms, then display the different terrains of the 8 rings. A desert area, a volcanic one, a forest one, a field one, a mountain one, a ruined city one, an ice one, and even a bizarre... giant toy box one.“Except for leaving one of the domed rings, there are no ring-outs among the Finals! One must either concede or be down for a 10 count! However, attacking an opponent that has conceded or has been down for the 10 count is grounds for disqualification!”Goku rubs his chin. “No ring-outs, huh?”“No EASY ring-outs, at least.” your brother clarifies. “Still, certainly different than the usual.”“Now, to start things off, since we have the both of them here, will both the current Junior Champion and reigning Champion step forward to draw their numbers?” Ken asks.Chuu Lee looks over in your direction. The two of you nod at each other, then move forward. This will decide your placement in the Prelims, and which of the 10 sections you’ll be part of.Here goes...>A. Pick from the top!>B. Pick from the middle!>C. Pick from the bottom!
>>3065025>>B. Pick from the middle!
>>3065025>A. Pick from the top!
>>3065025>B. ...wonder if we'll get #1...
>>3065025>A.Aim for the top!
Next A or B calls it.
>>3065030>>3065038Rock-Paper-Scissors you for it.
>>3065025You reach in deep, then feel around a bit, pulling out a sphere from the middle. You take a look at it and grin. “Well well well, lucky Number 7!” You hold the sphere up to Ken.“Looks like I’m still Number 1.” Chuu Lee comments jokingly, as she reveals her number.“All right, platforms 1 and 7.” The Tournament announcer hits a few numbers on the keypad next to him, and your names and faces appear on the screens. “Okay, next up...”Slowly the numbers start sorting out, and the 160 fighters are organized into 16 groups spread out among 10 platforms. Your platform is interesting, closer to the audience level. You’ll have 9 other fighters you’re competing against. To your slight relief, you don’t have to face any of your family in this preliminary round, though not for fear of fighting them. You’re relieved you can face them one-on-one later.You’ll be up against a teenage boy named Idassa, that vampire girl who mom called Sibella but seems to be going by the name of “Flambe” for some reason, the wolf girl who mom called Winnie but her stage name seems to be “Ddifa Bowen,” a friendly but tough-looking bear man named Wojtek, a blonde man named Caroni who seems to be one of Mr. Satan’s students, an alien lion man named Galbee, Jeice from the Ginyu Force, Mr. Krillin... and Basilea.“Crap. So much for luck in the prelims. A Saiyan in the first round, and one of the toughest, too.” the short man mumbles. He then adds, jokingly, “Ah well, hey, if I can beat you, kid, I can beat anyone.”“Well then I’m not gonna underestimate you. I’ll give you my best, Mr. Krillin!” you respond with a grin as his laughter turns nervous... but then turn your attention to Basilea. “Guess you’re gonna lose quicker than you thought.”Even though you can’t see it, a twisted and sinister grin seems to appear on her mask as a sinister laugh comes from it. “Oh no, this is perfect. She’ll be close enough to watch as I break you. Hehahahahaha!”You notice Videl looking your way. She glares at Basilea. “You mean I’ll be close enough to cheer her on as she whoops your butt again, right?”“You would hide behind her once more, wouldn’t you?” Basilea asks.“Oi. What a brat.” Jeice comments.“Seems personal grudges are a universal constant after all.” the lion man adds. The bear man just offers a grunt of agreement, while you see the teenage boy... sort of check both Basilea... and YOU out. And the glare Basilea seems to give him does nothing to persuade him to stop.(cont.)
>>3065176“Tch. Whatever. We’ll be able to kick their butts, right Sib- ...er, Flambe?” the wolf girl asks her friend.“Well, if either of us want to end up facing the others, we’ll need to rely on teamwork.” the vampire girl responds, and she almost seems to be pouting as she watches the teenage boy keep checking you and Basilea out.You notice that the mummy girl, “Bastette,” and Frankenstein’s monster, “Bratenda,” seem to be facing Gohan, while the ghost girl, “Spezia di Morte” is among Izzy’s group. Further, among the various groups seems to be the Prince of the Demon Realm himself, Beelzebub. He approaches you and looks up at Basilea, the two of them having an intense and silent glare-off for a moment before the demon prince turns to you and states, “Peppa?”“Yes, sir?”He stands up straight. “You have my permission to woop her butt. She’s clearly in need of it.”“Er... thank you, sir.”He glares back at Basilea again. “...You should be ashamed.”“I do what is necessary.” she tells Beelzebub adamantly. As he walks away, you hear her add under her breath, “We have saved him once. We will save him again.”Well, this is it. The battle is about to begin!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhScFOYNEoM>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #5... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~4:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Thanks for sticking by this for so long! Did y’all have fun?
>>3065180Also before I pass out, I'd like to thank the anon who commissioned that picture for us, and the artist who drew it. Thanks a bunch!
>>3065180wundabarwe take on basilea, krillin takes on jeice, let the rest sort itself out and Peppa takes on who's left after we woop butt.>>3065183thank you anon!
>>3065180I honestly didn't see that coming. But well hell, let's roll with it. Going to bet the Ghouls will be after Peppa first, as will Basilea.What are Gohan and Izzy's matchups like?I think I know what Towa's deal is this time around now. Basilea's line was pretty telling.>>3065183>>3065196Wow that's really nice of you anon. Thanks.
Well, lucky number 7 shout out was nice. The quest did reference your stuff in their Halloween special so it's nice to see you return the courtesy, Kato.
>>3065180AHHHHHHHHHH!!!Good run. Glad we're finally here. Seeing the tournament layout change again is fun twist. And TWO ghouls from the start? Should be a treat.Obvs Bassi has me tense, and to a lesser degree Krillin, but what are the ghouls talking about with teamwork? What tricks does Jeice have up his sleeves? And boys Peppa's age don't actually notice her, right? And that says nothing about the ninjas and their wish! I'm certain they won't be happy with the fake ball.Agh, I can't wait! So many interesting dynamics, and I'm all set to see them play out!
>>3065186Do note that a lot of people are VERY aware of how dangerous you are on your own, and while some of your nine opponents may be more willing to play fair, some are certainly willing to play dirty.>>3065206>What are Gohan and Izzy's matchups like?Gohan is facing: NappaJewelSobaZaridGolaYamchaGinyuBastette (mummy girl)Bratenda (Frankenstein's monster girl)Izzy meanwhile is facing:DoskoiKillaSachie MomochiKeliMeleeKibitoGuldoChiaotzuSpezia di Morte (ghost girl)Things may end up going her way. Things may take a very serious turn if they don't.>>3065342Have something a bit more clear in mind, but yeah, I quite like the writing for it. Good take on a more morally ambiguous QMC, and Mark 9 is fun.>>3065403Thanks!>but what are the ghouls talking about with teamwork?Just a few things to spice up the action a bit.>What tricks does Jeice have up his sleeves?You'd be surprised, he might have taken a few pages from Yamcha.> And boys Peppa's age don't actually notice her, right?Do note that Peppa does look a bit younger than she actually is. Not significantly, but a bit. Some boys do sort of notice her, and even a couple girls, but most don't show much interest due to some of her antics.> I'm certain they won't be happy with the fake ball.Do keep that in mind for later.>>3066300Have been trying to make things a bit more open. Also honestly haven't really read the chat much, just been catching up on updates.
>>3066397Are the matches isolated? For instance, what if someone gets kicked from their platform to another, does that count as a ring-out or does everybody still need to ensure there's only one left on each platform?
>>3066397>those deets>those matchupsI'm salivating.>Do note that Peppa does look a bit younger than she actually is. Not significantly, but a bit. Some boys do sort of notice her, and even a couple girls, but most don't show much interest due to some of her antics.Kind of what I figured. Also, she's terrifyingly strong compared to most people. I figure that dissuades some would-be-suitors as well
>>3066419They are isolated, but the rings are spread out enough that a fighter is more likely to end up in the side of another ring than on top of it. Some rings can actually split apart and move, as a measure to keep fighters from turtling.>>3066437Her phenomenal strength is a factor in it. While most see Peppa as a very nice kid, plenty of them are very much aware of how she could kick a tank like it's a football. At the same time, some are into that. Some people like strong girls.
>>3066397>Sachie MomochiThe plot thickens.Will we get chances to play as Gohan and Izzy?
>>3066497>Sachie MomochiHope she's been eating her ramen!
>>3066497>>3066501>Will we get chances to play as Gohan and Izzy?If y'all would like.Do keep an eye on her.
>>3066486>Some people like strong girls.Oh yeah, for sure. It was a surprise to see someone actively checking her out. I guess we'll find out if he's got lecherous intent or not.
>>3066515Which Tuffle Quest woman would you most want to be crushed in between the thighs of?
Okay, we're back!>>3065180https://youtu.be/dwLzUK3Ej68You head off with your group, wishing all your friends and family luck in their coming battles. The ring for the prelims comes into view, along with the thousands of people cheering among the crowds. Your attention turns to the massive screens as Ken appears on them.“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS, EARTHLINGS AND ALIEN VISITORS, WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE 27TH WORLD MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT PRELIMINARY ROUND!”The cheering intensifies as you see more fighters gather on the platforms below and above you. Seems mom’s group is a bit closer to the top, but not part of Chuu Lee’s group. Dad’s meanwhile is a bit closer to you. Closest seems to be Videl and Pantea’s group, the two girls tapping their fists together, friendly but determined smiles on their faces.“FIGHTERS FROM ACROSS THE COSMOS HAVE GATHERED HERE ON EARTH TO TEST THEIR ABILITIES, TO SEE WHO CAN CLAIM THE TITLE OF STRONGEST UNDER THE HEAVENS!” Ken continues, gesturing dramatically. “But before we begin, a word from our gracious sponsors and hosts to this event! Starting with the man who funded this new stadium, let’s hear it for Mr. X. S. CASH!”The screens switch over to a round, bald, jolly man dressed in fancy clothing flanked by a blonde woman in an equally fancy dress and a teenage boy, probably about 16 years old, with long brown hair. Kinda reminds you of Lapis, just younger. He also looks... kinda bored. The man chuckles happily. “You’re too kind. It is my family’s dream to see the cosmos come together under the banner of good sportsmanship and friendly competition. Ah, but this could not be possible without the tireless efforts of this Tournament’s other sponsors. King Furry, our High King of Earth, the Galactic King of the Milky Way, and his highness Emperor Kuriza!”The screens show the Earth’s monarch dog seated with the Octo alien king, the two of them giving short, encouraging speeches, and then to Kuriza on the platform he’s on. The young alien smiles humbly. “I do quite look forward to seeing how your planet’s best have improved with my own eyes. The flag of friendship flies high above the clouds of this world.” You notice he seems to look in mom’s direction as he adds that last bit. “I am ready.”“WHAT A GREAT SPORT! WITH ALL THAT SAID, LET THE 27TH WORLD MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT... BEEEGIIIIINN!”https://youtu.be/f00XP9A4C-EThe ten fighters on your platform take their stances. Basilea is clearly focused on you, and Krillin seems to move closer to you. “Want to team up a bit for this, Peppa?”Idassa also seems to scoot closer, looking over to you. “Soooo... you doing anything later?”>A. I’ll be able to handle this on my own, Mr. Krillin, but thank you. Best of luck!>B. Sure! I know who my target will be>C. Not interested, pal, sorry>D. Doing something? Yeah, celebrating my victory as Champion!>E. Eh, are you?>F. Something else?
>>3066614>F. Puzzle over that 'Universal Greeting' Mom's been saying was the universal greeting all your life. Was she wrong or misinformed?>"Probably fighting Ninja."
>>3066614>B.>D.>E. "Your welcome to come to my after party!"
>>3066614>A. I’ll be able to handle this on my own, Mr. Krillin, but thank you. Best of luck!
>>3066614>B.Team up with Krillin sounds fun.>C & D.
>>3066614>>3066633>You have to get to the bottom of this, it's going to bother you too much otherwise. "Hey, offworlders, 'Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong'?"
>>3066633>>3066647I'll back this too.
>>3066614>B.>F. "Wrong time. Wrong place."
I wonder if there are any Arlians here?
Next tournament we should see if we can add the gravity generator for the preliminary tournaments.
>>3066614You raise an eyebrow. Noooot exactly sure you like this guy. “Wrong time, wrong place. Besides, I do have plans of sorts.”“O-oh?” he asks almost hopefully.“Yeah. Celebrating my victory as Champion!” you declare and let your aura flare around you. “But hey, if you want I can invite you and everyone else to the victory party.”“Oh...”You take your stance and move closer to Krillin. “And sure! Teaming up sounds like a smart move for now. Even if we do have to fight each other in the end. I know who my target will be.”Krillin readies a defensive stance as his aura flares around him as well. “Then I’ll make sure to pull my weight here, kiddo!”The lion alien and Jeice approach. As they do, you recall something mom taught you when you were young... how’d it go again? Ah, right! You clap your hands together, bow, then greet the aliens, “Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong.”The lion man is surprised, then answers in kind. “Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong. Surprising, I did not know you Earthlings knew the Universal Greeting.”“Heh, they’re just full of surprises.” Jeice comments, striking a pose. “But ain’t gonna go easy on ya’ just ‘cause yer mum’s one of our pals!”“Wouldn’t want you to!”The wolf girl whispers to her vampire friend, “A-are we fighting now?”“I’m going to make you SUFFER, Peppa!” Basliea roars as a dark aura erupts around her.>A. Krillin, let’s stick to defense!>B. Both of us against Basliea, she’s the main threat!>C. I’ll keep Basliea busy, you back me up!>D. Wind-boosted Explosive Wave to push everyone back!>E. Let everyone focus on you to give Krillin a chance to start picking them off!>G. Something else?
>>3066721>C.Krillin on defense while we face Basilea. Best option so far.
>>3066721>C. "The funk did I do?">Kick her in the face.
>>3066721>E.Go for high chances of collateral damage to other opponents. We've drawn a lot of attention, so we may as well put it to use early and build up some hate between the group.
>>3066721Peppa takes on Basliea, Krillmeister should cover Jeice. ...the bear man, lion man, and the ghoul squad will need to be played defense on. test out what they can do.Caroni and Idassa as blonde boys need to work together or fight. Actually Caroni has a potential apprentice..
>>3066769Has Caroni learned IT from the Noodles?
>>3066721>C. I’ll keep Basliea busy, you back me up!

>>306679920's are always impressive.
>>3066792I think it's Krillin's rolls.
>>3066812>Krillin gets to pull a Frost on us
>>3066721https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jp2-2wPq74o“I’ll keep Basilea busy, you back me up!” you yell out, dashing at the demon girl. She attempts to grab your head only for you to duck under her hand and deliver a chop to her gut. Basilea backs away, growling out. “Okay, what is your DEAL? What exactly did I do? Really, is this like mom and ol’ skunk lady Towa? Because I barely know you!”“And I know you oh so well.” Basilea replies venomously, attempting to sweep your legs. You jump up and kick down at her, scoring a direct hit to her mask. You sense someone approach you from behind.“WOLF FANG-!”“DENIED!” Krillin calls out as he guards against the wolf girl, blocking each strike she attempts to make. “Sorry kid, she’s a little busy at the moment!”“Thanks Krillin!” You return focus to Basilea. “Know me well, huh? Me, specifically?”The mask has cracked from your kick. Basilea stares you down. “I know what you’ll end up like. Even without that tragedy to harden you, you’re just like her.” A sphere of black energy builds up in her hand. “Save for one difference. You are somehow MUCH more annoying!”She flings the dark sphere at you, only for you to teleport behind her with Instant Transmission then strike her in the back with the Rasenken. “So it’s like... future me, or something?” you ask almost arrogantly and incredulously. “That’s what you’re so mad over?”Basilea flips back on to her feet and lunges at you trying to grab you with her tail as she misses a grapple with her arm. You’re able to duck under her again. Sometimes it’s a good thing you’re so short. “That, and for how you humiliated me before! Again and again!” She tries to stab her hands at you, and it takes all the effort you can manage to dodge her strikes. “But I know where to hit you where it hurts.”You sense someone building up power behind Basilea, only for her to leap out of the way as three fireballs fling at you from the vampire girl. You prepare to teleport, but then an attack comes in from behind, a red sphere of energy launched from Jeice. Krillin again backs you up, holding his arms up and bringing them together in a boxing guard.To your surprise, a shell of energy, almost like a turtle shell, appears before him, blocking all three fireballs. Krillin looks back and grins. “Well! Looks like my new technique is working just as intended!”“Hah, a turtle shell? Clever!” Both you and Krillin end up having to dodge as Caroni and Idassa try an improvised combo attack against you both, only for the two of you dodge and block effortlessly.Aaaand Idassa seems to be trying to impress you still. “Heh, you are as good as I remember. You sure you don’t want-?”(cont.)
>>3066916“You’re wasting your time with her, boy.” Basilea interrupts, then smirks. “I do have to wonder though, Peppa... does she know yet?” She powers up again... and her energy keeps climbing. You... might have to transform to match her.>A. Okay NOW you’re asking for it! Match her increase in power, transform!>B. Idassa, REALLY not the time!>C. Keep up your current strategy, don’t waste any power and conserve your strength>D. Switch up a bit, help Krillin hold off some of the fighters!>E. Push the other fighters away, you need to focus on Basilea as much as you can!>F. Something else?
>>3066924>D. Switch up a bit, help Krillin hold off some of the fighters!>"Seriously, getting mad at me for something the 'me' in another timeline did, that's like getting mad at someone for what they did in a dream."
>>3066924>A & B.And this >>3066932
>>3066924"Basilea, spoilers!">D.>F. if Basilea gets too close, combine Meteor Combo and Super God Fist on her.
>>3066924>D.>C.We're still ten deep and holding our own, no need to burn out so early. The higher Basilea's power goes, the more likely any alliances of convenience will fall apart.

>>3066924>F. "Basic, you may be in the wrong mood to enjoy yourself here. These tourneys are supposed to be fun, and it doesn't seem like you're having any with that attitude. If you want to destroy me, the tournament is the wrong place."

Crap, hope this doesn't hurt too much
>>3066978I expect that with one success here we successfully defend, but not get any good hits in.
>>3066924https://youtu.be/j4OEi1mJy8k“Spoilers! Gawd!” you call out, backing up so you’re back to back with Krillin. “Might have to change this up a bit. Too many other fighters around.”“Start picking ‘em off, huh? All right, on my lead!” Krillin dashes to Caroni as the man twirls and leaps into the air.“BEAUTIFUL FLYING ROSE ATTACK!” he yells out as a rose-colored aura envelops him, bolting down at Krillin... only for you to kick him in the side and knock him down. He slams into the ground hard, skirting close to the edge.The lion man brings his massive fist down near Krillin, with him dodging and then grabbing him by the arm and throwing him, following it up with a kick to his gut. The lion man nearly falls off, gripping the edge and trying to pull himself up.As you touch down, the wolf girl leaps at you. You try to knock her aside, but surprisingly she’s able to read your movements exceptionally well. She keeps dodging, neither of you getting any good hits in. To make matters worse, she’s able to distract you long enough for the vampire girl to prepare another attack, flinging another trio of fireballs at you. You block them, but then have to raise your block again as you witness her appear from a bat form and try to drop-kick you.“You two are pretty good! Where’d Baba find you girls?” you ask.“Eh, my dad’s one of her fighters.” the wolf girl.“As is my uncle. We’ve been selected from our school to-”(cont.)
>>3067150“OUT OF MY WAY!” Basilea roars, grabbing the wolf girl by her tail and throwing her at you like a projectile, the girl howling in pain as she smacks in to the young vampire as you dodge. But Basilea is able to get behind you and grabs you by your tail hard, slamming you face-first into the floor. “Tch, is this the best you can manage? Or do you think you can beat me without going blonde, Saiyan?!”You try to break free and smash your fist onto her face, but the girl only gets a better grip on you and slams you down again. Ow. “Ghr... getting mad at me for what my future self did is dumb! Seriously, it’s like getting mad at what happened in a dream!”She tries to slam you down again, only this time you manage to grip on to her arm with your tail and legs, pushing off the ground with your hands and attempting another slam of your fist into her face. Basilea dodges, but just barely. “You are both the same. Or did you forget that humiliation you gave me when we first met? Because I never will!”“YOU went out of your way to brutalize Videl! Don’t act like you’re blameless!”“SILENCE, PEASANT!” Basilea flings you aside, but you’re able to get back to your feet after a flip in the air. “I taught that girl her place. Under the boot of her betters.”You shake your head. “Basilea... these Tournaments aren’t supposed to be about this. They’re supposed to be about fun, the thrill of competition. You have entirely the wrong mindset for this. If you want to destroy me, the Tournament’s the wrong place for it.”She laughs. “Hahahaha! Oh on the contrary, this is the perfect place to break you. In front of the entire world. In front of those you care about the most. In front of your... special someone.” She stomps forward slowly, her black aura like a dark flame around her. Basilea tilts her head. “She really doesn’t know yet, does she? You’re not quite where she was last I saw her... though I guess she ended up regretting it.” Basilea cracks her knuckles. “Unrequited love is such a tragic thing, isn’t it?”Krillin manages to knock Caroni and the lion man out of the ring. “Peppa! Hold up, I’ll be there in a bit!”>A. Hey how about you shut your face, Basilea? Better yet, I’ll shut it for you!>B. Basilea’s going to be focused on me, so do what you can to keep everyone else away!>C. Transform! You need her out of the ring ASAP, and you can’t manage it like you are!>D. Nope! Denied! Keep away from Basilea and keep helping Krillin!>E. Hey, ghouls! Wanna take this girl down a peg first?>F. Something else?

The fatal flaw: > “It’s not weakness to rely on others. It’s strength... strength you dismiss because you want to prove yourself above it.
>>3067227The center to all pride is 'I'.
>>3067246She is literally so self-centered it's apart of her name.Almost as if her parents knew.
>>3067155https://youtu.be/JJeH7A5oKk0“Basilea’s focused on me! Do what you can to keep everyone else away!” you shout out over to Krillin. The demon girl dashes at you and then attempts to strike at your legs with her tail, but you teleport away with Instant Transmission and appear next to Baba’s fighters. “Hey ghouls, know we’re technically enemies right now and everything, but wanna team up for just a bit and help take this big girl down a peg?”The two of them look at each other, then nod, and look back at you. All three of you stand together. Basilea snorts dismissively. “Pathetic.” She brings her hand down and then slashes up, a wave of energy tearing through the platform. The three of you dodge, but Basilea is able to use that distraction to fly to you, bringing her hand in front of your face. A blast of energy washes over you as you try to guard against it, your feet digging into the floor as best they can to brace you against the onslaught. “Relying on them when they’re just as likely to-”“WOLF FANG FIST!” the wolf girl yells, interrupting Basilea’s rant and causing her to block against the incoming attacks... only for the vampire girl to jump in and combo with the wolf girl, the both of them managing to land a combo palm strike to her face, finally breaking the girl’s mask. The wolf girl lets out a triumphant howl. “AWOOOO!”You leap up, and the both of them dash with you, another flurry of blows forcing Basilea back, with you managing to get a Meteor Combination off that keeps Basilea close, finishing it off with a blast downward. “Don’t you remember, Basilea? It’s not a weakness to rely on others. It’s strength... strength you dismiss because you want to prove yourself above it.”(cont.)
>>3067405She yells a guttural, furious roar out. “Oh shut the hell up!” She brings her hand up and shouts, “HELL BLITZ!” as she fires a chaotic and powerful blast up at you.You dodge it and start flying down, spiraling winds forming around your fist. Basilea prepares to block, only for you to use Instant Transmission again to teleport right in front of her, yelling, “RASENKEN!” as you smash your fist into her face.Basilea stumbles back, then looks at you with pure hatred in her eyes. “...You will suffer. You will suffer and I will make her watch as you scream for mercy.” Basilea powers up again... and her Ki rises higher and higher. In fact... it’s almost like something inside her “snaps” and changes, as if she’s powered up into a stronger form. You... might need Super Saiyan for this. “I WILL BREAK YOU!” Basilea roars as her dark aura erupts and causes the platform to shudder and crack.You see Krillin knock Idassa out of the ring... though the boy almost seemed to be fixated on your and Basilea’s battle as he was doing it. Only Jeice and the bear man remain facing him, with you, the ghouls, and Basilea all on the same side of it. Out of the corner of your eye, you see both Pantea and Videl looking over to you, worried.“You think you can rely on them, Peppa? They’re weak. They have no idea how wide the gap is.”>A. We’ll still take you down together! Come on, ghouls!>B. Basilea, if that’s what you want, I’ll face you one-on-one>C. Super Saiyan, here it goes!>D. Nah, denied! Lead her around the arena and try to get people to attack her!>E. Something else?
>>3067410>A & C.Super Saiyan isn't too straining. Best to use it now insead of risk taking any more serious damage.

>>3067430Wouldn't that be more draining than normal Super Saiyan?
>>3067410>A.>E. Stick to evasion and countersI believe in the ghouls and Krillin.
>>3067452Believe in ghouls? You've just met.
>>3067490And yet they're Baba's entrants. Plenty of reason to believe they're more than capable.

Rolled 14, 18, 9 = 41 (3d20)Okay then, roll me 3d20, best of three! DC is 17 for all!

>>3067522Known her as what?
>>3067410“We’ll still take you on together! Come on, ghouls!” You stand with the two of them, ready for what Basilea has to offer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BV2NnFp7lEYTurns out she has much more than you’re anticipating. She’s before you in an instant, with her fist planted in your gut. You fall to your knees as the wind’s knocked out of you, a smack of the demon girl’s tail knocking away the vampire girl, her free arm backhanding away the wolf girl. You’re forced to catch your breath and watch as she takes her time pummeling the both of them, the fighters doing what they can to defend... but clearly outclassed. Right as you manage to recover, you attempt to dodge Basilea as she kicks down at you... then realize that the wolf girl’s held by her tail in the demon’s hand, and she ends up used as a club against you, smashing you around with her.“WINNIE!” the vampire girl yells out, transforming into a bat and flying frantically at Basilea. She changes back and nearly sinks her teeth into the demon girl’s neck... and is stopped when Basilea’s elbow hits her gut, holding her in midair for a bit before slamming her down and stomping on her.“KAIO-KEN!” you yell out as you blast at Basilea, adding the Raio-ken on top to try and get to her before she brutalizes the two any further. You do manage to get her attention as she kicks both of them aside, the two skirting close to the ring... only for Basilea to catch you by the throat and smash her fist into your face.Her grip grows tighter as she pulls you in, with you struggling for air. “So much for relying on others.” She starts punching you in the gut again and again, trying to keep the wind out of you. Basilea keeps it up as she walks towards the edge. “VIDEL! You get a good look at this!” she yells out. “She won’t come to your rescue this time! You want a preview of what’s in store for you?! WATCH!”You catch a brief glimpse again, Videl and Pantea looking up at you in terror. “S-Stop it!”“No. No I think I’ll take my time with this. Hahahahaha!” the demon girl laughs. You keep trying to gasp for air as Basilea hits you again and again. You could transform, but you need to breathe first. “And here I thought you had a lot more fight left in you. Shame, really. Could have at least made an attempt to go blonde before we got to this part.” She pulls you in closer. “Oh, but don’t think we’re done yet. I’m not going to toss you out. I’m going to make you SUFFER. And she will watch every. Single. Moment. And when I’ve had my fill, Peppa, I’ll give her ten times what I give to you.” Basilea’s grin gains a murderous smirk. “So keep that in mind when I beat your ‘precious’ Videl to a bloody-”(cont.)
>>3067635A Ki blast hits Basilea in the back and cuts her off, and her grip loosens ever so slightly. Enough for that you have a brief moment to actually gasp for air. You look back. Krillin! “I think you’ve had enough fun here!”“Now that’s just unsportsmanlike.” Jeice adds as five red spheres fly at Basilea, the girl having to bat them all away. A third blast hits her like an artillery shell, almost causing her to fall off, but she manages to hold her ground as the bear man stands with his arm forward.You’ve got a chance!>A. Super Saiyan smackdown!>B. Basilea, you wanna see what I can really do? Let me show you Super Saiyan 2!>C. Teleport over to Krillin with her still holding you!>D.

>>3067638>>3067673Also, seconding the E. here >>3067657 but add a "...Videl?" to the beginning, just to let her know she's missing the mark. Not that she deserves to know anything, but maybe it'll make things slightly less complicated.

>>3067638https://youtu.be/y2hAB4kbVxIYour hair spikes up as a golden aura surrounds you. You attempt to teleport Basilea next to Krillin with yourself, but she catches on quickly and lets go. Still, you manage to get away. You rub your neck as you take a moment to really catch your breath, then glare down at her. Basilea readies a fighting stance. You give her a bemused look. “...Videl? Sorry, I think you got your signals mixed up there.” Sparks fly around your aura as you power up even further, your hair spiking up more. “Basilea, I don’t take threats against my friends like that lightly. You wanna see what I’m really capable of? Then get a load of this! This is Super Saiyan 2!” You leap towards her, the massive increase in power and speed letting you fly circles around her.“So what?! You think this is it?! All you’re doing is proving me right!” she yells out, trying to grab hold of you again, only for you to take every attempt and counter it, elbow strikes against her tail grabs, jump-kicks against her leg grabs. You even manage to grab her by HER tail and toss her to the ground. You fly up slightly, getting Basilea to follow you, only to turn your back to her.“You just don’t get it, do you? Maybe this will make it a bit more clear.” You kick backwards and send her towards Krillin, who’s been waiting for your signal. He brings up his Turtle Shield as Basilea crashes into it face-first. You teleport to her and then quickly move next to Krillin, with you delivering a roundhouse kick that he follows up with a Kaio-ken x20 boosted Kamehameha. It pushes her back to where the ghouls are, both of them standing up again. They try to grab on to her and pull her off the ring, but Basilea’s quick enough to knock both of them off the side instead.That’s when you manage to get your chance. Telepathically, you thank the two of them, and then teleport behind Basilea. “RASEN...”She looks back and tries to blast you in the face, only for a Ki blast to travel down and smack her hand down. She looks up and spots Jeice, who strikes a pose in the air. “Special gift from the Red Magma of the Ginyu Force! She’s all yours, kid!”“KAMEHAMEHAAAAAA!” you roar, blasting Basilea point-blank and knocking her far, far out of the ring, the beam traveling off past the horizon. That’s definitely out of bounds. You feel her Ki plummet; it’s there, but she’s been beaten. You exhale, rubbing your neck again. Gah, hope that didn’t leave a mark.(cont.)
>>3067800Krillin, Jeice, and Wojtek all nod as you head back in, Krillin and Jeice giving you a pair of thumbs ups. “Always someone like that, huh?” the red alien asks aloud.“Thanks for the help, everyone.” You telepathically check if the other two that went over are okay, and sigh in relief once you hear that they are. “Still... got the four of us left. Wanna see how far you guys can manage against me?”Krillin sighs. “Guess this was happening at some point... ah what the hell! Even if we’ve got no chance, might as well have some fun! Let’s go!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #5... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Thanks for sticking by this for so long! Did y’all have fun?
>>3067804Yeah, this was cool.Basilea's a problem child, I'm not sure if we can call her our rival so much as a busybody. Seriously, was she stalking us to get the info she had?
>>3067813Then again, she's the antithesis to us currently, and she reminds me of someone else who stalks their rival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KSGUVcNfZM
>>3067804Hell yeah I did. Nice that the others helped knock her out, especially Krillin pulling his weight there. Kinda wished that we got more from the Ghouls but they were nice and added some variety.How'd Videl feel about that whole battle?>>3067813>>3067825Clearly, pic related.
>>3067830>>3067813Glad y'all had fun!>Seriously, was she stalking us to get the info she had?She DOES know Towa, after all. And has face the future kids a few times herself.>How'd Videl feel about that whole battle?She's still got a degree of apprehension over facing Basilea again, but she was feeling a bit more confident when you started fighting her. The confidence started to evaporate when Basilea finally took the match seriously, and she feared for your life when Basilea started trying to brutalize you. She's got a number of very complex emotions on the whole ordeal now, glad that you're okay, worried over how serious Basilea is taking her grudge against both you and her, and just a little confused by what Basilea seems to think your relationship with her is.
>>3067854I was surprised when the vampire fell off, is the water salty or running any?
>>3067859Despite the pic, I'm not really objecting to her falling into the water, anyone punched in the gut can't exactly run a hundred meter dash.
So who we playing as next session?
There's probably a really sad reason why Basilea doesn't have friends that we haven't been shown a Naruto flashback of. I'm betting it has something to do with those furs she wears.
>>3067885I'd like to finish up the fight Peppa is in first, personally.
>>3067917No offense, but it's not finished already? Then again, I don't know what the lion can do yet.
>>3067928If they have any sense, the three of them will team up against us. Odds of victory are still good, but we shouldn't take it lightly.
>>3067932As a token of respect for their assistance, should we ask if they want to fight us Golden, or Regular?
>>3068019>The three of you are so much weaker than me, I'm going to offer to handicap myselfIt may have been worth it to take on Basilea unpowered to break her pride, but that would just be insulting to people we respect.
>>3068031Well, this is a martial arts competition, seems unfair to use transformations to trump prowess.
>>3068033It's power and skill together, and losing to someone weaker than us who goes on to immediately get their ass handed to them is pointless.
>>3068042It's not pointless, it's fun. Super accelerating our mind and body by turning our hair gold to where lessers are moving like snails to us enabling us to knock them out in less then the time it takes to say "" isn't that fun.
>>3067511...Kato did you actually use these rolls?Those are d2.
>>3068058!!!HOW DID NONE OF US NOTICE?...It's far too late for a mulligan, we should get some later boon to compensate.
Rolled 10, 14, 19 = 43 (3d20)>>3068061>we should get some later boon to compensate.I think only if we manage to roll a passing score. As I had not rolled, I will now.
>>3068061>>3068068There, one-third a success, but no critfails.
In the end, maybe it's simply that she didn't hit us as hard as either of us thought?
>>3068058...my bad. I posted that right when i went to bed.
So which is stronger, Super Saiyan God, or Super Saiyan Rage/Spirit Saiyan?
>>3068348I'd say SSJ God has better ki control while Rage lets them go between red and blue.
>>3068440Saiyan God allows someone to go punching Gods, but Spirit Saiyan is carrying the burden of the collective will of all living things, which might give their attacks more weight.
>>3068462http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Rage_Modehttp://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Super_Saiyan_AngerSo is SSJ Anger just god ki + rage mode?
>>3068593Who gave Broly god ki? Did he inherit it from a past life?
>>3068604 Genetic engineering/manipulation to find the next Yamoshi
>>3068068>>3068069Actually still one critfail. But one success. Still, shit. How did none of us notice?Bah, oh well, too late to change still.
>>3068831It'll be okay, reminds me of monkey grand-dad.
>>3068838See, all better.
>>3065176>You take a look at it and grin. “Well well well, lucky Number 7!”
Okay, quick vote: who would y'all like to play as tonight? Gohan, Izumi, or Peppa again? We'll start in about 30 minutes.
>>3069728GohanA regular pattern of Peppa -> Gohan -> Izzy -> Peppa might be nice.
Where would we be starting with the other two, at the beginning of their matches or the middle?
>Play as Gohan vs Peppa
>>3067859>>3067866Do note you're fighting over the ocean, the platform is a bit offshore on a small, built up island.>>3067899Please no spoilers!>>3068058>>3068061>>3068062>>3068068>>3068069>>3068085>>3068114>>3068831Crap. Should have payed closer attention. Sorry about that everyone.>>3068348>>3068440>>3068462I'll have more to say on that later. But for now I'll say that God is an exceptionally powerful form, but one that takes the right amount of strength and skill to actually manage properly.And all righty, we'll switch over to Gohan for this one!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4gL0zINJBo“Well... here it goes.” you comment to yourself silently.You look around cautiously at your opponents. Nappa seems to be the most present threat, but you know Yamcha’s got plenty of tricks up his sleeves. The demon man likewise probably could do a number on you if you’re not careful. And of course there’s Captain Ginyu over there, though he seems much more focused on the blue alien. What was his name again? Soba? He does feel fairly strong. The mummy and Frankenstein girls seem like they’re pretty focused as well. The young brown-haired young man and blonde man are probably going to be some of the easier fights... though you swear the brown-haired dude looks familiar.As the announcer guy calls for the prelims to begin, you notice Yamcha leap closer to you, taking a ready stance. “Hey, Gohan, we know each other’s skills pretty well. Wanna team up for a bit?”>A. Nah, I can handle this, but watch your back against Nappa>B. Back me up then, Yamcha, I’ll go for some of the stronger ones>C. Two heads are better than one, what’s your plan?>D. Let’s work with that brown-haired guy too. He might be able to help>E. Something else?
>>3069856>A. Nah, I can handle this, but watch your back against Nappadon't look at muh spoilers
>>3069856>C. Two heads are better than one, what’s your plan?>D. Let’s work with that brown-haired guy too. He might be able to helpAsk the blonde guy too, may as well.>E. Something else?Nappa, Soba, and Ginyu are probably the top 3 priorities.
>>3069875Can we go down an alternate avenue with different MC's? Teamworked the fuck out of ring 7, but how powerful is Gohan on his own?
>>3069882Fuse with Yamcha
>>3069856>D. Let’s work with that brown-haired guy too. He might be able to help
>>3069856>C.I'm still impressed by their teamwork in the gravity chamber and would like to see a second flash of it>D.Because Gohan needs guy friends somewhere in his own age range.
>>3069856You nod, then look over to the brown-haired guy. “Let’s work with him too. Nappa, Soba, and Ginyu will be the toughest opponents. Ginyu and Soba are tied up in their confrontation, but who knows how long that will last.”He nods, and the two of you both hop over to to the young man. Yamcha catches Jewel’s hand as he tries to strike, tossing him away as you take a stance next to him. “Name’s Gohan. Not sure we’ve ever met before, but you look familiar.”“Zarid.” he replies, taking a defensive guard. “I partook in the Junior Division a few years ago.”Oh. OH! You do remember him, just barely. Wow, you were still like, a toddler back then. “What brings you here?”“Sachie kinda dragged me back here.” He points upwards as you feel someone’s Ki suddenly spike up. “Not much time to explain that, but we sorta got roped into helping some aliens. Got a couple medals from the Galactic Patrol.”“Neat.”Yamcha flips back to the two of you. “All right, we all good?”“Three heads are better than one. What’s the plan?” you ask.Nappa starts to march forward, flanked by the mummy and Frankenstein girls, the latter sparking with electricity. Yamcha looks over them. “Keep on the defensive, get them to tire out a bit.”“Stick to dodging like we trained?” you ask.“Dodging works for me.” Zarid affirms.>A. I’ll keep Nappa occupied!>B. The mummy girl probably has some tricks up her... er, wrappings, I’ll keep her busy!>C. Sparks don’t scare me, I’ll hold off the Frankenstein girl>D. Something else?

>>3069964“Sparks don’t scare me, I’ll hold off the Frankenstein girl!” you call out.“Then Nappa’s mine!” Yamcha howls forth as the giant of a Saiyan leaps towards him.Sparks form around your body as you yell out “Raio-ken!” You dash around, blasts of lightning firing at you... but thanks to your training, you’re more than capable of dodging them. You sidestep again and again, dodging each sparking bolt as it comes at you.Zarid meanwhile surprises you as he dodges the mummy girl’s bandages being thrown at him with superhuman agility and grace. He’s clearly no slouch. Even more, as the mummy girl grows increasingly frustrated, she forms in the palm of her hands... a sphere of crystal? The tosses it at Zarid, who dodges it as well, the crystal shattering on the floor.“Uh... is that legal?” you ask aloud.Still trying to hit the young man with her wrappings, she forms another one and looks at you, an image appearing inside it... oh hey it’s mom when she was young. Oh. It’s mom using the Clothes Beam. Does that count? Well, guess it does. Not ACTUALLY a weapon there. “HEY!” the Frankenstein girl yells at you.“Wha- WOAH!” You look back and is... is she holding own detached forearm?“ROCKET PUNCH!” she yells, tossing it at you and just barely missing you. You notice the arm’s also sparking with electricity. You dodge another few bolts as it misses you, only for the other arm, still someone alive, to blast at you from behind, only barely missing since you see it out of the corner of your eye.The arm then scurries across the floor, with the girl picking it up and reattaching it. You keep dodging around her... and then you start to feel yourself pulled close to her. What the he- oh, it’s the lightning in your aura. Guess it’s an opposite charge to the girl’s? You get back and move next to Zarid.“Seems this plan’s working.” the young man comments.“Yeah. Hey, you’ve got some great speed. Where’d you learn to do that?”He chuckles. “I’ve had a few masters before. But I must admit, I’m no match for Sachie for when she gets serious.” He looks up again at where you felt someone’s Ki spike. Guessing that’s her... and wow, whoever she is, she’s got exceptional power.>A. Entered to impress her, then?>B. Better keep dodging, we’ve got a good pace going>C. Zarid, combo attack with me, let’s see if we can knock one of them out>D. Let’s get them to attack one another, then help Mr. Yamcha>E. Something else?

>>3070264Actually scratch that B, supporting this
So who we aiming at? If it's Nappa, he's the one we'd be most able to surprise, but we'd have to ask Yamcha first.

>>3070216https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jp2-2wPq74oYou chuckle. “Yeah... I’ve known that feeling.” you admit, your sparking aura intensifying. “How about we both show them we’re no slouches either?”Zarid smiles and nods. “Sure. You got a plan, Gohan?”“Combo attack with me. Let’s try and knock one of them out.” You look around as the two girls ready themselves for another volley. Hrmn... given who seems to be the bigger threat... “Frankenstein girl first.”“On your mark then.”The mummy girl tries to throw her wrappings at Zarid again, and right as he dodges, you shout, “NOW!”He turns his dodge into a turn, backflipping and then dashing forward with you. You jolt ahead, circling around the other girl. You grab her attention by sidestepping back and forth away from her attacks. She then seems to detach her arm again, holding it like an electrified club. It again starts to pull you closer. “You little...!”“El- uh, Bastette, watch out!” the mummy girl yells.“Too late!” Zarid places his hands on the ground and then dashing forward at full speed. She tries to turn around, you slam your knee into the back of her head, allowing Zarid a chance to jump up and grab her by her hair and fling her down. You flip back and then try to kick her in the head again... only for you to realize it’s no longer on her shoulders, it’s in her detached hand. You miss, and the girl reassembles herself, an aura of lightning engulfing her right as she reaches the edge.“You punks! I’ll get you two for that!” she yells out as she seems to start charging up an attack. Agh, so close...!“Gohan, the ground!” Zarid calls to you, placing his hands down on the floor... and charging a Ki attack? Ah, of course! You do the same, and both of you let out waves of energy through the floor that travels under her and knock her off her footing, the blast strong enough that she’s knocked clear off into the water.“Nice one!” you praise.“Whew... close one too.”The two of you notice as Yamcha’s knocked back to you, but he sticks his landing. Nappa rubs his face, but still seems ready to fight. The mummy girl meanwhile is stomping furiously. “OOOOOOHHH! I’LL GET YOU BOYS FOR THAT!” She brings her wrappings around and starts... gathering the shards of the shattered crystal balls? Wuh-oh.Meanwhile, Ginyu is struggling against the blue alien, who you notice is using Instant Transmission to keep dodging his attacks, while Gola tosses Jewel from the ring... well, more sikes him down from it. Two down...>A. Let’s get her to attack Nappa!>B. Yamcha, Zarid, focus on the mummy girl, I’ll draw Nappa’s attention!>C. Your call, Mr. Yamcha, what do you think?>D. Gola’s pretty close to the edge himself... maybe you can knock him out?>E. Back to dodging! Keep tiring them all out!>F. Something else?

>>3070499https://youtu.be/JaeeKsy3NJo“What’s your plan, Mr. Yamcha? Try and get her to attack Nappa?” you suggest quietly.“That’d be one way to do it.” he replies as he takes his stance. “Gohan, you and me against Nappa, let’s go! Zarid, keep her occupied!”“All right!”You and Yamcha move to Nappa, dashing around him and trying to draw his attention. It works, and Nappa is focused on the two of you, wildly trying to catch you and Yamcha as you both sidestep around him. In frustration, the large Saiyan starts to power up... and then you feel the area around you suddenly charge up with power. Crap!“Gohan, up, now!” Yamcha yells, the two of you taking to the sky as Nappa flips up two fingers, the area around him exploding with energy. You both get out of the blast zone... only for Nappa to appear behind Yamcha. He seems to get a warning, but it’s brief and only gives him the time to block... and even blocking, the sledgehammer blow from Yamcha sends him darting back to the floor. Power builds around his fist as he tries to strike you, but you’re just small and quick enough to be able to dodge it effectively. You stand on his massive arm, kneeling to wrap your tail around it as he tries to shake you off. Quickly you pull Nappa with you back down, closer to Zarid and the mummy girl.You see Zarid almost effortlessly dodge her attacks, even as she seems to have incorporated the shards of glass into her wrappings, flailing them around as she tries to strike him, with each attack missing. You’re able to let go of Nappa and throw him to the ground, right next to the mummy. Her next attack almost connects......And then you see a golden aura erupt around Nappa as he catches it. His eyes go teal as his mustache and eyebrows go blonde. Crap. Right. He can do that. The mummy girl gulps. The massive Saiyan, now Super Saiyan, flings her around like a ragdoll by her wrapping, Zarid still managing to dodge it, but he releases her up into the air at you, the girl’s head slamming into your gut and sending you both down. Thinking quickly though, you grab on to the edge of the ring as the mummy girl falls.“Not a bad strategy, runt. But I’ve seen it before.” Nappa comments. “Time to take the kid gloves off.”You pull yourself back in to the ring, Yamcha on one knee and trying to stand again. “This... this could get ugly...”>A. The strategy will work, let’s get him over to Ginyu and Soba!>B. Best to leave him to me now, you guys try to handle someone else>C. All of us on him, then! Let’s go!>D. Okay Nappa, you wanna play that game? Two can go Super Saiyan, you know!>E. Something else?

>>3070678https://youtu.be/M23NRARoRkQStanding tall, you start to power up. “Best to leave him to me now. You guys try to handle someone else. But thanks for all your help, Mr. Yamcha, Zarid.”“Heh, you pulled a lot of the weight there, Gohan.” Yamcha replies.“Was an honor fighting with you.” the young man responds. “Best of luck.”“And I won’t take it personally if you guys try to take a shot at me, promise!” You add half-jokingly as your hair spikes up as you transform into a Super Saiyan. “Okay Nappa, you wanna play this game? Two can go Super Saiyan here, you know. Hrrahh!” Just now you notice someone near your sister also power up substantially. Guessing that’s Basilea... damn, she could easily do a number on either of you if you aren’t careful.The massive Saiyan smirks. “Confident, aren’t ya, kid?”“Give me your best, Mr. Nappa!” you yell out as the two of you launch at each other. Fists clash, Nappa’s power against your speed. Each of his attacks have a lot of stopping power behind them, but thanks to your training, you’re able to keep up the pace against them, dodging and countering each blow. And looks like Nappa’s starting to tire quicker, thanks to Yamcha’s earlier efforts. Still... this can only get you so far. You build up electricity around your fists, and hit Nappa with the Izumi Combo, boosted by Lightning, to stun him and push him away.(cont.)
>>3070899Surprisingly, Nappa’s able to recover from it quicker, as his own aura starts to gain sparks. Is he going Super Saiyan 2...? No, not quite. Still, surprising. “Grhh... nice try, kid, but not good enough!” Nappa opens his mouth and fires out a beam of energy.“Then it’s no more holding back!” you yell out, powering up more. Below you you feel Peppa transform... all the way up to Super Saiyan 2. Might as well match her. Your hair spikes up more, and you deflect Nappa’s blast into the air. You hear the crowds cheering from this display. With the beam deflected, you start to dash around the ring. Nappa tries firing blasts at you with one hand, bringing up explosions in front of you with the other, but you dodge each and every attack. Finally, you’ve built up enough momentum. “SHIIIIIIINE...!”“GOT YOU!” Nappa roars.“SPAAAAAARRRRK!” You blast forward like a bolt of lightning and slam into him, smashing Nappa off the ring and down into the water. He’s out! Triumphant thrust of your fist into the air! You did it!You turn around to see Yamcha tackling Gola off the ring, with Zarid helping blast the two of them off. Ginyu seems to try to use some kind of strange mouth beam technique against the blue alien, but gets shut down when Soba teleports behind him and delivers a chop to his throat, then a kick to knock him.So... just the three of you left. >A. Zarid, wanna help one last time?>B. Focus on Soba, but don’t leave yourself open!>C. Get Zarid out first>D. Try and tire the two of them out, but conserve energy as best you can>E. Something else?
>>3070901>D. Try and tire the two of them out, but conserve energy as best you canEquivalent Exchange is the Law of Conservation.
>>3070901>D.Still thank Zarid for that team work earlier. Good guy, should hang out with him another time.
>>3070901>D. Try and tire the two of them out, but conserve energy as best you canRegular super saiyan good enough here, or are these guys at our level as is?
>>3070678>even as she seems to have incorporated the shards of glass into her wrappingsNow that's gotta be illegal. Unless it isn't? Can we shank Nappa?

>>3070988Bears have claws. Makyans... dunno. Don't think the swords are legal.
>>3071003Glass shards seem as dangerous as swords?
>>3071008Differently dangerous, but when you're talking about beings that deliver and tank against blasts that can shatter planets the considerations are probably a little different.
>>3071055I found a tourney legal sword for Gohan.
>>3070901https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKWdBS1r_pESoba bows respectfully after Ginyu falls. “You have changed much. Perhaps you are in the path to redemption after all.” The alien looks over to you, seeing your sparking golden aura around you. “Hmm... so you are one of this planet’s Saiyan warriors.”“Well, half-Saiyan, half-Tuffle.” you clarify.Zarid tilts his head as he looks at you. “Amazing... you’re definitely way stronger now, Gohan. There goes my shot at making it to the finals.”“Hey, no fun in giving up just yet.” you comment with a slightly cheeky grin. “Give it your all and see where you can improve for next time. Every defeat’s an opportunity to grow.” You take your stance. “Something mom taught me quite some time ago.”Zarid smiles. “A wise woman then.”Soba readies himself. “Then I shall give you my all!”The both of them move towards you, and you do what you can to block and dodge them. Easier against Zarid, but for a regular human he’s still got considerable skill. Soba meanwhile seems to utilize Instant Transmission to try and get the drop on you, but your reaction time is just quick enough that you’re able to keep up the pace around him.You next leap away, getting both of them to follow, and try to help Zarid with some of his skills. “Close! Try aiming where I’m going to be, you’re good at following movement, but you need to predict it too.” You start having to actually block his attacks. “There we go. Even if your opponent outclasses you, there’s always a chance to get a good hit in.”“Something else you learned from your family?” Zarid asks, managing to get a roundhouse kick awfully close to your face.“Family and my main teacher.” You point upwards in Chuu Lee’s direction. “Current Martial Arts Champion, Chuu Lee.”“Ah, so that was her name.” Soba comments, forming a sphere of energy in his hand and then blasting it out... only for it to scatter into smaller ones, all of them surrounding you. “I recall her and a black-haired man visit my people about a year ago.”Huh, neat. So that was where they went for their little vacation. “Didn’t get a chance to spar with them?”“I was involved in aiding the Galactic Patrol during the time. Entered to see how those who are using my people’s technique are managing it with my own eyes.” Soba explains.“My sister just picked it up from mom not too long ago after years of training, but I’ll have to admit, she’s been using it like a pro.” You then recall someone else had Instant Transmission... hrmn, who was it again?(cont.)
>>3071063Zarid slams his hands on the ground again as you get closer to the edge, trying to blast you off like the two of you did together earlier. You leap over and instead stand behind him, back to him as he pants in exhaustion. He’s completely spent. “Was nice fighting you, Zarid. Keep up your training, and best of luck next time.”He smiles, still panting. “Thank you, Gohan. Good luck later in the Tournament.” He finally collapses, unable to stand.Soba tries to keep up his fight against you, and as strong as he is, you’re still a good deal stronger and faster, even with his Instant Transmission. You lead him towards the edge, and trick him into teleporting in front of you... and right into an incoming kick that sends him rocketing down to the water below. You hear a count start for Zarid, the young man not really trying to get up; he’s just too exhausted.Your attention is turned downward. Pantea and Videl are going at it. Looks like this might decide who’ll end up in the finals... but guess there’s only one thing you can do now. “COME ON, PANTEA! YOU CAN DO IT!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #5... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?Also, Izumi tomorrow, or back to Peppa?
>>3071066Izumi! That kai's gonna be a BITCH to deal with!
>>3071066Great times were had Kato! Glad Gohan got to make a friend.And Izzy tomorrow sounds good.
>>3071066Good run, and very excited to see Gohan beginning to break out of his shell. He's built up some good confidence and had a superb handle on the pulse of the match. I was really impressed with the trio's team-play, in particular the younger pair. But Yamcha's grown to be scary capable.>>3071068Izzy's match is going to be a slog. But fun.
>>3071115Izzy's got her work cut out for her. She might need to rely on allies even more than Gohan and Peppa.
>>3071125If there are any allies to be had at all, haha.
>>3071144She doesn't need to be the strongest, she needs to be stronger than the last opponent remaining. Don't engage and redirect.
>>3071144>>3071153Maybe everyone else opposes each other enough to ignore her, to their eventual peril.
>>3071157That, or Kibito blows everybody into the water with divine wind.
>>3071144Well, Keli, Melee, Guldo, and Chiaotzu are among the fighters, so Izzy could potentially team up with them while the other fighters duke it out. Ghost girl is a wild card, but maybe she can help out too.How strong is Kibito anyway? Dabura could one-stop him, and Zamasu schooled him in the manga, but he could still be plenty tough.
Is Kibito going to be blue here since Bulma's hair is manga-accurate?
Also, what skills does Kibito have? Healing, shockwaves, generic Ki blasts, teleporting, what else? ...Mild racism against ningen?
>>3072202The most dangerous ability of all: CLOTHES BEAM!
>>3072279Damn. He knows some of our best tricks.
>>3071105>>3071115Glad y'all are having fun! And good to hear that y'all are liking Gohan's development so far.>>3071631Kibito is fairly strong on his own, though nowhere near as strong as Shin. He's definitely stronger than Izzy, though, so keep that in mind.>>3071745He'll be pink.And okay, we'll switch over to Izzy for tonight!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtXA0ixyezY“BEEEGIIIIINN!”Well. What an interesting group you’ve gotten yourself caught up in, Izzy. A boxer guy, a sumo wrestler, Keli AND her demon girlfriend, Guldo and Chiaotzu, an odd ghost girl who’s mumbling to herself like she’s terrified of something, a tall and bulky pink alien with pointed ears, and some... schoolgirl with what you SWEAR is a shuriken in her hair. Well THAT’S not suspicious at all. Is that even legal? You’re about to try and analyze your foes again when you hear a slurping noise. It’s from the schoolgirl. Is she... is she eating ramen? At the start of a match? Yeesh, even your cousins have better self-control than that. Heck, even uncle Goku does!“Chiaotzu, what do you think? Take on the red guy first?” Guldo asks, pointing to the tallest alien.“He’s quite strong... the two of us might not be enough.” the small, pale man replies. “But no sense in giving up just yet.”Melee seems to look at the tall alien apprehensively, like she knows him from somewhere. Looks like she and Keli might be willing to take him on with Chiaotzu and Guldo. Which just leaves the other humans and the ghost girl. Aaaand the schoolgirl is still eating ramen. Oh wait, she just finished- ...did her Ki just skyrocket?>A. Leave them alone, the big pink alien is the biggest threat here>B. Might be worth teaming up with her, see how she got that boost in power>C. Hey, ghost girl! Some of these guys are pretty tough, need a hand?>D. You know what? You’re good on your own, take out some of the weaker fighters first>E. Something else?
>>3072380>B. Might be worth teaming up with her, see how she got that boost in power>C. Hey, ghost girl! Some of these guys are pretty tough, need a hand?An unknown with weird power gimmicks is a variable worth removing.

>>3072380https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoKRO93g_NQOkay, staying away from the big brawl against the burly guy, see what these odd girls are up to. You move closer to the ghost girl, hearing her muttering more clearly. “How can one be here? Oh no, oh no no no is he here because of me? W-wait, is it even one of them? Okay, okay calm down, calm do-”“Hey, you okay Ms. Spirit? Looking a little uh, spooked.” you ask her, causing her to leap and yelp. The big guy looks over to you both curiously, but then seems to give a dismissive grunt as Melee and Keli move closer to him, the demon lady chatting with the silver-haired woman quietly. The ghost sighs in relief. “White as a sheet. Need some help?”“W-well... so long as we stay away from that guy.” she requests.You nod, then turn your gaze to the schoolgirl. The sumo bows to her respectfully as she crosses her arms, trying to... calm herself, you guess. The boxer moves closer to her. “Listen, kid, I don’t wanna hurt you, so maybe you’d to better-”“Nah. I can take ya’.” she replies, eyes opening and taking a fighting stance.The dark-skinned man rolls his eyes and takes his own stance, then moves quickly towards her and prepares to strike her with a right hook... only to hit an afterimage. “...What in the-”“HYA!” the girl yells, kicking him in the back of the head hard enough to knock him into the air, the boxer skirting close to you and the ghost girl.“J-just who the heck are you, kid?!” the man yells out."Sachie Momochi of the Momochi Ninja Clan. Strongest girl in Japan!” You turn to the ghost girl and ask quietly, “Where the heck is Japan?”She shrugs in response. “I think it’s close to Penguin Village?”...This explains all you need to know, really. “Well girl, the name’s Killa, and you just earned the kid gloves coming off!” He dashes at the girl, only for her to jump several meters into the air and dive-kick at him, again hitting him in the back of the head, only for her to dash in front and hit Killa with a palm strike that sends him dashing at you and the ghost girl again. The both of you give a quick nod, with the young phantom moving off the arena and floating slightly above as you chop at Killa and knock him towards her, who spikes the man down into the water below.(cont.)
>>3072471“Thanks.” Sachie comments, putting up a victory sign with her fingers, her painted and detailed nails glistening in the sunlight.“So... ninja, huh?” you question as the ghost girl returns.“Eh, kinda. Not as good as my dad or grandpa. But more than capable enough to handle these guys.” She turns and faces the sumo wrestler. “Who are you two, exactly?”“Izumi Mahogany.” you introduce with a polite, princess-y curtsy.“You can call me Spezia di Morte.” the ghost girl adds.“Okay. Imma toss him.” Sachie states.“Oh, no no, allow me!” Spezia insists with a giggle as she flies at the sumo wrestler... and passes through him. Wow, she IS a ghost! The large man then... starts running towards the edge? What the...? He forces himself to stop and then tries to meditate, and the ghost flies out of his body. Possession, huh?“That trick will not work on-” You and Sachie dash forward and deliver a twin palm strike to his gut, interrupting him and sending him off the edge, with you bringing up your Spirit Bits and firing down at him to ensure he goes down.“Waaaait... wait I know that technique!” Spezia exclaims, and then gasps giddily. “Oh my gosh you’re one of them?!”“...Them?”“You know, Maple, Acer, Chi-chi, Goku? Oooooh so cool!~”Sachie places her hands on her hips. “Guess you’ve got a fan.”>A. Well, that’s two down, maybe we should try our luck against Chiaotzu and Guldo>B. Keli and Melee are a little distracted, we should take them out>C. That big guy’s still worrying me, we’ll need to try and take him down first!>D. Something else?
>>3072474>A. Well, that’s two down, maybe we should try our luck against Chiaotzu and Guldo>D. Spezia, how long can you make someone hold their breath with possession?
>>3072474>C.Hah, Izzy gets another cross-worlder. At least this one is a bit more friendly. And nice that ghostly girl's a fan of her family.
>>3072474>A. Well, that’s two down, maybe we should try our luck against Chiaotzu and GuldoWatch out ghost girl, they're psychic types and your a ghost type!
>>3072486Ghost is super effective against Psychic, not the other way around.Peppa would be upset if Izzy gets that wrong
>>3072490If she can get ahold of Guldo, she can 300 cups of coffee a lot of people off of the arena, and even make Guldo pass out from lack of air.
>>3072474Time for information gathering>D. Humor the ghostie a bit>E. Spezia, do you recognize the big guy? Can you tell us anything about him? Could we take him as a group?Plan around that and look to>A.
>>3072490Unless we're in Gen 1 rules, then Psychics are immune to Ghost Types.Wasn't til Gen 2 that took effect.
>>3072496Clearly we're in at least Gen 4, with the split.>>3072493Oooh, good point. Switching to>A.

>>3072474https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_iRB_kQswQ"Spezia, how long can you make someone hold their breath with possession?” you ask.“Er, for quite a bit, actually, but eventually I’ll be forced out when the reflexes kick in.” she replies.“Okay, plan. The green guy’s got some powerful abilities, both psychic and some kind of other skill-” You all feel a strange sensation of stillness as you see him almost teleport from one part of the ring to another, the pink guy blocking as Guldo tries to punch him, dodging Chiaotzu’s Dodonpas. “That thing. Think you can take control of him when he does it?”“Uh... maybe! I’ll give it a try...” She looks over at the large alien and shakes.Well. That’s twice now. “...Do you know him, by any chance? Think we might be able to take him as a group?”“H-he... he might be a Kai.” she comments quietly. “Oooh... I could be in SO much trouble...”You stare in disbelief as Sachie asks, “A what now?”“A member of the race of the divine rulers of the four quadrants of the universe... given his power, he might not have a title but he’s certainly an attendant for a higher Kai. Ooooh this is bad... we could be in for a lot of trouble against him.”“Huh. So gods and demons are in this thing in addition to aliens.” Sachie comments, then smirks. “Now I can see why Zarid was so nervous. Eh, fought aliens already, why not add to that list?” An aura flares up around her.“Okay, Chiaotzu and Guldo will be our targets for now. Spezia, take Guldo. Sachie, you and me will go against Chiaotzu.” You nod to the small, pale man.“We better make this quick then.”“Go!” The three of you dash ahead, Spezia sinking under the floor as you see Chiaotzu and Guldo back away from the Kai, letting Melee and Keli take a turn at him. You notice him scowl even harder at Melee as she tries to fight him. Guess he’s no fan of demons.“Hrmn... new plan, we try and trap him with telekinesis, then throw him off?” the green, four-eyed alien asks Chiaotzu.“Maybe, but he might-”“Good plan! We’ll be taking it!” you declare as you and Sachie both kick at him, Chiaotzu blocking and being forced back.“Sorry girls, we don’t have time for distractions!” Chiaotzu yells, trying to counter your attack, only for you to snap your fingers and hit him with a blast of fire.“Ooooh. Nice trick.” Sachie compliments, bringing her hand back. “Lemme show you one of mine!”A ball of Ki forms in her hand, spiraling around with a tremendous amount of power in such a small place. She’s about to toss it when Chiaotzu holds up his hands, and the both of you feel like you can’t move. Crap, his telekinesis! Sachie’s sphere of Ki fades as you both try to struggle out of it. “Like I said, we don’t have time for distractions!”(cont.)
>>3072566“I’ll show you a distraction!” you yell out, your Spirit Bits circling around and firing at him, causing Chiaotzu to release his telekinesis.“Grh! Not bad, but-” Chiaotzu steps back and bumps into Guldo... who then grabs him, to both the surprise of the small pale man and the green alien. You notice the two of them suddenly appear near the edge.“I-I can’t control it! Something’s... gyah!” Guldo tosses Chiaotzu, then Spezia leaps out of the alien’s body and makes gun shapes with her hands.“Double Geist Magnum!” she yells, blasting Chiaotzu out of the ring, Guldo disappearing and reappearing several meters away from you all, shaking his fist. She then does a giddy little dance in midair. “Eeee~ it worked!”You look over and notice Keli and Melee panting heavily, the alien... still looking like he’s barely trying. Damn.>A. We should help them against that guy>B. Spezia, one more time, sneak attack on him while Sachie and I take on the ladies over there!>C. Guldo’s still a danger, get him out of the ring first!>D. Something else?
>>3072567So glad we got to team up with Phantasma from the start. She's so cute!>C.As useful as time stop may be, I doubt it will work as well on big pink as it just did. Let's clear the ring and try for a 3+2 v.s. 1
>>3072567>C. Guldo’s still a danger, get him out of the ring first!>Do that thing the Gurren Lagann does where it makes new sunglasses appear like shurikens but with your own hairband, then throw those at Guldo's limbs to root him in place.
>>3072567>D. Hmm, do you happen to know an Izumi Citron by any chance?

>>3072567https://youtu.be/rU0XA7ZpiXU“Guldo’s still a danger here, we need to get him out of the ring!” you declare. “Let’s do it!”“Better make this quick!” Sachie states, forming the Ki sphere again.“Don’t think it’ll work this time! HA!” Guldo holds his hands forward... only for the two of you to have dashed behind him, Spezia traveling through the floor again and grabbing him by the ankles, dragging him to the edge.You bring your hands together and let out a torrent of icy water, freezing him in place as he starts to take a breath. He’s trapped, arms and legs pinned! And right where you want him! Sachie leaps into the air, spinning slightly and dashing down at Guldo, slamming her sphere of Ki into his chest, launching both it and the green alien off into the water.Sachie turns around and gives a double-victory sign, smiling brightly. “And that’s another one down!”“Awesome work, girls!” you praise, Spezia doing another giddy little dance next to Sachie.The three of you notice both Keli and Melee knocked away by the big alien, though not out. In fact... it looks more like he’s stalling. He looks over at your group and give a dismissive shake of his head, then returns his attention. “Hmnh. And here I was led to believe the Demon Realm had better warriors.”“Oh shove it!” Melee yells back. “Just what are you doing here anyway?!”“Looking for the strongest of this world’s warriors. Aside from YOUR dubious origin, demon, neither of you seem to-” His head turns quickly as he’s interrupted by a massive surge of furious, dark power. Wait a second, is that... oh crap that’s where Peppa’s fighting!“We’re going to probably need to team up with the both of them to take him down.” you tell Sachie and Spezia.“Oooohhh... do we have to?”“Hold that thought!” Sachie requests as she pulls out a Capsule, opening it up to reveal a... lunch box? ...One filled with another cup of ramen. “Try and stall a bit, that took a bit more of my time than I liked.”>A. ...Your time? Why do you need another thing of ramen? You JUST ate!>B. Don’t question it, just get the big guy’s attention!>C. Spezia, you think you can possess him?>D. ...If that dark Ki got his attention, maybe your magic can spook him!>E. Something else?
>>3072641>B. Don’t question it, just get the big guy’s attention!>D. ...If that dark Ki got his attention, maybe your magic can spook him!
>>3072641...Did she just Rasengan Guldo out of the ring? Hah, so she's THAT kind of ninja.>B & D.
Definitely should ask about the Ramen thing later though.
>>3072641>E. Leap at the Kai slowly as if to drop kick him, and when he catches your attack pry his hands apart with your legs and deliver a Ki-cutter Cross Slice from your crossed arms.
>>3072641>>3072663Ooh, we should make sure to freeze his arms with our feet so he can't move them.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgZ8arxkFXY

Hey, Goku does a more whoop-ass version to Mercenary Tao!
>>3072641https://youtu.be/CFHucxYmAZgYou know what? You don’t exactly have time to be asking questions here. “Spezia, I’ll do what I can to draw his attention, you attack when you see an opening!”“Oooooh... okay, okay, I can handle this. I’ll do it!” she affirms nervously, sinking into the floor again.Well, you’ve got a bit of an opening yourself. He’s strong, but distracted by the power below you... wait a second, that’s it! If that dark Ki caught him off-guard, maybe your magic can do the same! You’ll need to get in close, though... well, maybe some of those things mom and dad showed you can help.“Not good... it’s almost as high as the Demon King’s...” he comments to himself, gritting his teeth. “At this rate-”“HYAAA!” you yell out as you start to dropkick the Kai. He brings his arms up to defend, only for you to spread your legs and blast him with torrential ice from your hands to hold him in place, just long enough for you to charge Ki through your arms. “WIDE SHOT!” you yell as blasts of energy fire from your forearms, still slashing them down at him to deliver a neck chop...Your attack connects, but not completely as he lets out a shockwave from his body, knocking you away. Just then, Melee and Keli seem to form a set of energy binds that trap him in place. Spezia appears out of the floor, holding up her hand. “Phantom Galvanizer!” A blast of paralyzing electricity blasts into him, keeping him stunned. Perfect!Bringing your hands forward, you channel a spell, shadowy magic forming in front of you and condensing at a point. Now or never! “GRAVITY BLOW!”The Kai looks up in surprise as he senses your attack coming, trying to break free of the binds, but the stun in his body keeps him still just long enough that your attack manages to connect! Direct hit!...But while he takes damage, it’s still less than you’d hoped. Damn. He powers up slightly, glaring at you. He brings his hand forward and releases a powerful shockwave that knocks you away and sends Spezia, still close by in her attempt to attack him, right through the floor. You’d worry, if you weren’t nearly knocked off the edge by that blast. You try and recover to stop yourself from falling...(cont.)
>>3072712“Gotcha!” Sachie calls as she catches your arm, pulling you back in, her Ki not only back up, but you think it’s even higher than before. “Maaaaybe counter-intuitive for a free-for-all, but hey, he’s not out of the ring just yet.” She turns and faces the alien with you, grinning. “Close call, but he’s not out yet. Plan?”The Kai then turns his head again as you feel Peppa’s Ki skyrocket... and then Gohan’s, too! The pink alien looks down in surprise. “Mere mortals have THIS kind of power...?”>A. We need to get him out of the ring and then spike him down, like you did earlier>B. Keli and Melee’s energy binds could hold him, we need to give him everything we’ve got when he’s in place!>C. Sachie, distract him with the others, I’ve got just the thing to end this! Mixing light and darkness together to blast him out of here!>D. Something else?
>>3072714>C. Sachie, distract him with the others, I’ve got just the thing to end this! Mixing light and darkness together to blast him out of here!
>>3072714>B.>C. Hoping for Hell and Heaven. Or wherever we decided on naming it.
>>3072721As soon as the Name war ended, a new one appears on the horizon...
>>3072714>A.>C.>D.Okay so, idea, we have everyone get him to the edge of the ring, then make a sort of tunnel with Wind magic to trap him in place, and finally spike him down with a combined Light and Shadow Magic attack.Hell and Heaven!
>>3072726I'm not sure if we know Wind magic, might be more Peppa's bag.
>>3072728We used it fighting Onio, I double checked.

>>3072738According to Raging Blast 2, it's Begone! which is a TERRIBLE name!
>>3072714A late suggestion: a quick mention that they have even stronger forms could throw him off for a second.
>>3072752Don't think we want any attention of his on us, it's why I didn't bother with saying provocations like "Your opponent's in front of you" and junk.
>>3072714https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yctKSEjtIVcYou smirk. “Sachie, you keep him occupied with the others. I’ve got just the thing to end this.” your aura flares up around you again.“Oh?”“Light and darkness when combined leaves quite the explosive result. Just give me that shot.”She nods. “Izzy, right? Nice fighting with you, you’re totally cool!”“And I can see where you got your title. Like your fashion too, not everyone can pull off that schoolgirl look when they’re kicking butt.” You give her a thumb’s up, and she returns the favor.Keli and Melee both leap towards him, the Kai now taking the fight far more seriously, effortlessly blocking and dodging their attacks. Agh... yeah this guy is WAY stronger than he was letting on. He’s got you completely outclassed in terms of raw power. But strength isn’t everything!As he dodges their bindings again, he fires off another shockwave... and even seems to use the Clothes Beam to do what they were trying to do, wrapping them up and then blasting both of them off. He then grabs both Keli and Melee and throws them hard down into the water. He returns to the ring, looking down again at where Gohan and Peppa are... only for Sachie to kick him in the back to catch his attention. He tries swatting her aside, doing his best not to really use up any of his energy, but she manages to keep dodging... as she builds up another sphere of Ki.You dash in after her and together, the both of you kick him off the platform... but he stops himself in midair. You try to form up a tunnel of Wind magic to trap him in place, and then build up Light and Shadow magic in each hand, but he angrily blasts away the tunnel with another shockwave of Ki, one that pushes you back as well... and leaves himself wide open for Sachie’s sphere of energy, a ball the size of the girl herself. “HE’S ALL YOURS!” she yells as she slams it into the Kai, pushing off it and getting back into the ring.You bring your hands together and leap forward as the sphere traps him in place, and with all your might scream out, “HELL! AND! HEAVEN!” as the chaotic energy mixes with the sphere of Ki, spiking him down into the water as it explodes with power, knocking you back into the ring next to Sachie. You lay on your back for just a moment, panting heavily. You... you did it! You WON! The two of you WON!(cont.)
>>3072771“Oooof... I’m gonna be feeling that later.” the girl grumbles as she rubs her arm, wincing. “Hah, but man, Zarid is not gonna believe that! We beat, like, a GOD or something! That’s nuts!” She scurries over to the edge of the ring. “Zarid! Hey, Zarid! ...Zarid did you pass out?! Agh, gaaawd, you suuuuuck! At least tell me you saw that!”You can’t help but start laughing. “Guess it’s just the two of us left. Oof, but that took a lot out of me.”“Took way more out of me.” Sachie admits. “My time’s up, and I’m all out of strength anyway.”You sit up. “Then how about one more try? You hit me with your best shot, and I’ll give you mine.”“...Heh, you know what? Sure!” Sachie stands and takes her stance. “One last shot.”You do the same and get ready. Another smile appears on your face. No matter who does end up making it to the finals, you feel like you’ve accomplished a lot today. Bet you made your mom and dad proud.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #5... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?We’ll be back to Peppa tomorrow, pick up where we left off, or head to the end of the prelims? Also, Izumi or Sachie? Have a preference on who won this bout?
>>3072775Probably Sachie, Ninja's are quite tricky after all.
>>3072775Let's flip a coin on it, best out of 3.
>>3072782Three rolls, 1d2?
>>3072784Yup, I suppose it'd work on calling out "Odds" or "Evens" as you roll a 1d2.
>>3072786As in, if you get it right, Izumi is that much closer to winning.
>>3072787Or It can just be 1zzy or 2achie
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3072790I love it. Rolling now, 1zzy or 2achie!
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3072793Woo!
Rolled 1 (1d2)Here we go.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3072775That was an awesome finale! Great times were had, nice to see Izzy score a solid win like that. And damn, Sachie impressed the hell out of me.How's Kibito taking his loss? How are the other fights doing?And I think we can skip to the end for Peppa.>>3072793I can get behind this idea. Rolling.
>>3072793>>3072795>>3072797Welp.Just as well, the other opponents probably wouldn't let her take a lunch break.
Rolled 1 (1d2)Hmm, if we can keep rolling 1's it'll get them out of the regular dice pool.
>>3072793>>3072795>>3072797>>3072800>>3072806Not a single 2. These dice are rigged.
>>3072808Izzy is just that good.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3072808It be the Luck of the Tuffles.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>3072816Ok what
>>3072818Oh good the roller isn't screwed.
>>3072775>she pulled it off>mfwAHHHHHHHHH!Very satisfying run. I probably liked this matchup the best of the three as far as the collection of characters, and it's about equal with Gohan's group for the overall team dynamic. Nothing against Krillin or the Ghouls, but something on Platform Seven felt a little off. It certainly made up for that in drama though.Still, all the fights were worth having and stacked up pretty well to expectations. Looking forward to our intrepid youngsters struggling through the next rounds on the road to the championship!
>>3072775I'd rather go to the end of the prelims, instead of deciding how to beat up the people we actually like and aren't much of a challenge.
>>3072793>>3072795>>3072797>>3072800>>3072806>>3072816I'll take that as a sign. Congrats, Izzy, you're in the finals!>How's Kibito taking his loss? Combination of shock, shame, regret, and a sense that Shin is going to poke fun at him for this for centuries to come.>How are the other fights doing?Pantea and Videl have a big showdown going on. Goku and Raditz are having a fun brotherly brawl. Nail and Piccolo are still fighting, with Lapis and Lazuli as part of their group. Maple, Chuu Lee, Shin, Vegeta, and Ledgic have all passed.>>3072822Very glad you liked it! I'll admit that this one was a bit more fun for me to write, allowed me to get a bit more creative with the fights.>>3072828That's fair.
Wow, that fight felt really tense, it's fun to be a non-Saiyan every now and then.>>3072828Hey, I'm still feeling hot, you wanna flip a coin on if Peppa wins her bout?
>>3072829Oh yeah, thanks for including that 「JOJO REFERENCE」
Idea: instead of one of the Saiyans being scouted by Whis to be a God of Destruction candidate, what if it's Izzy instead? Right kind of drive for it, and maybe it fits in to a sort of theme for her.
>>3072837She seems like she'd be more interested in Kais when it comes to gods. Also, I don't know if she can be cranky to the point of genocide, but then again her Granddad used to kill people and eat them for intruding on their mountain.
>>3072837Maybe it could work, how good is she at throwing cards? http://lostkingdoms.wikia.com/wiki/God_of_Destruction
>>3072840She did kinda just kick Kibito's butt. Besides, destruction doesn't need to be a bad thing. Just ask the King of Braves.
>>3072829If it's not too much to ask, could we get a write-up for a couple of those matches?
>>3072712>“Phantom Galvanizer!” A blast of paralyzing electricity blasts into him, keeping him stunned. Perfect!If it galvanizes but also stuns, does it work like so?
Hey, if there are 10 platforms, then how are the top 16 decided?
>>307293610 winners + audience poll selected runner ups.
>>3072936>>3072991Top 16 among all fighters?
How in the world of the Kais do these ghoul school girls know our moves?
>>3073371What I wanna know is what's the theme with their stage names?
>>3072833Glad you liked it.>>3072936>>3072991>>3073323Recall what was stated earlier:>>3065025>All will be divided among these 10 platforms by lot, and the top 16 of among them will head off to the Finals after a brief breakSome platforms have more fighters on them than others. I mostly kept the ones Gohan, Izumi, and Peppa were on smaller so they were more manageable.>>3072837>>3072840>>3072843>>3072850Interesting.>>3072866>>3072868I can give some. I'll even include a bit coming up.>>3072902Haw.>>3073371>>3073401>>3073419Recall what Maple stated earlier, that she'd met the ghouls previously during her time with Baba. There may have been a bit of Equivalent Exchange going on.Okay, we're back with Peppa then!>>3067804You catch Krillin’s fist and then counter with a palm strike. He attempts to guard against it with his Turtle Shell technique, but it’s not quick enough. He takes the blow head-on and then falls to his knees. “Eheh... c-crap... guess that’s all for me. W-well, good job, Peppa. I’m gonna... I’m gonna take a nap now...” He collapses to the floor. A count starts.You place your hands together and bow. “That was a great fight, Krillin. Thank you.” Sensing around, you can tell that Gohan’s won his match... oh great! So has Izzy! Nice, you were a little worried after you sensed how strong that pink guy was, but looks like she pulled through. Hmm... dad and uncle Raditz are still going at it, but you can sense that dad’s winning.“COME ON, PANTEA! YOU CAN DO IT!” you hear Gohan cheer from above you.Looking down you see the two still engaged in a fierce battle, Videl getting tricked by a couple afterimages... that you notice possess Ki, somehow. Pantea’s still in this fight, but seems that it’s starting to take a toll on her. The match could go either way at this point.>A. Cheer Videl on!>B. Pantea, don’t let up!>C. Keep quiet, this is their battle, no sense in distracting either of them>D. Something else?
>>3074044>C.>D. Ki sense out the other stages.
>>3074044>Nice, you were a little worried after you sensed how strong that pink guy was,When does a kai become a god, or unsensible?
>>3074044>A. Cheer Videl on!She needs cheering on too!
>>3074044>C. Keep quiet, this is their battle, no sense in distracting either of themGohan is understably biased, but we don't have a reason to take sides. Also, a certain someones earlier implications makes it awkward either way.
>>3074060Not cheering on a friend when they might need it is taking a side.
>>3074050The Divine Ki comes with the title, like how Kami, Dende, and for you, Trip, have it as Guardian but not as normal folks.
>>3074044>A.No fair if Pantea gets all the cheering.
>>3074044>A. Cheer Videl on!
>>3074044>There may have been a bit of Equivalent Exchange going on.So what'd she get? gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme
>>3074044Well... this is their battle, and you don’t want to distract them any, but given that you can hear your brother cheering, might as well make this fair. “VIDEL! YOU CAN DO IT! DON’T GIVE UP!”The black-haired girl turns and briefly looks towards you... and smiles. She focuses back on Pantea, almost getting tricked by another afterimage... only for her to spin around and catch Pantea behind her, Videl striking her in the torso with her knee. “C-crap... knew that you’d catch on eventually. And before I could pull out the finishes with them.”“Finisher?” the black-haired girl repeats, Pantea moving towards her, dashing past and leaving an afterimage. Videl dodges by jumping up... and the afterimage that was moving at her suddenly detonates in a small explosion.“Tch... well, I’d expect nothing less from you.” The purple-haired girl powers up. “But you can’t keep this up any longer, can you? Next move is going to make or break it... but I’ve got exactly what I need. Hope you’re ready!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_SxVtf6Nk0“Then this is it! Let me see you at your best, Pantea!” Videl’s voice roars from below you. White auras surround both Pantea and Videl, though you notice sparks of flame around Videl’s arms as her aura builds up more intensely on her fist. Pantea meanwhile seems to have a far more intense aura around her torso, especially towards the back and shoulders... almost like she has little “wings” of some sort forming from her aura.Pantea leaps away, and you notice sparks start to jet out from around her. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you, Videl. Here goes!” The purple-haired girl starts dashing at Videl at full speed, sparks building up more and more, until she’s almost right on top of Videl... and then she stops and dashes hard to the left, apparently aided by one of those aura wings on her, her body like a bolt of lightning. “SHINE... SPAAAAARK!”(cont.)
>>3074163She almost feinted Videl into striking her where she stopped, but Videl catches on quickly, turning her body as... what looks like a bird made of flame and Ki engulfs her fist. “FALCON...” Videl jabs forward, the raw power of the attack pulling her with it. “PUUUUUUUUNCH!”Fire and lightning crash together, an explosion erupting through the area, blinding yellow and red causing most looking at the confrontation to have to turn away... but thanks to your goggles, you manage to see it.Pantea is sent flying out of the ring as Videl’s knocked away, her body bouncing against the ground and towards the edge, but she’s able to catch herself before she falls. She did it!“And that brings our total number of contestants down to 18, the next two eliminations will decide who heads on to the finals!” Ken shouts out to the cheer of the crowds.>A. Give Videl a thumb’s up>B. Telepathically congratulate Pantea, that was still a great fight!>C. Check on the other fights, see who all is still left>D. Something else?
>>3074165>A. Give Videl a thumb’s up
>>3074165>A. Give Videl a thumb’s up>B. Telepathically congratulate Pantea, that was still a great fight!
>>3074165>A & B.I should have seen that coming, but hey, appropriate considering her other moves.
>>3074165>A. Give Videl a thumb’s up>>B. Telepathically congratulate Pantea, that was still a great fight!
>>3074165>A>BI do like how some of the second genners are going from real to super robot inspirations.
>>3074165>D. Give Videl a thumb's down>Telepathically berate Pantea, that was a shitshow.>Retire to the buffet, you have nothing more to see here.
>>3074200Yeah, it's pretty neat. Gohan (and Pantea)'s got Getter/Metroid, Izumi with GaoGaiGar now, and Peppa with TTGL.
>>3074211Does Eva count as Real or Super?
>>3074239It's in the same weird in-between space as G Gundam.>>3074211As much as I'd like to build up the stable with a few more moves, that's probably a good number for now. Plus, there are a few improvements to be made on Hell and Heaven. I think it could end up being a pretty good area-control attack when paired with the Spirit Bits.
>>3074211I don't know what GaoGaiGar is, but I thought Izumi inherited her mom's Ultraman moves?
>>3074257Oh man, that would make a great combo.
>>3074263...Chichi has Ultraman moves?Though you're right, guess it does count too.
>>3074257>>3074265Might not be a good combination seeing as Spirit Bits require control to be used effectively and Hell and Heaven is Chaos Manifest.
>>3074267Yeah, her Slugger attacks and lasers were references to Ultraseven.http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Chi-Chi%27s_helmetI guess if we want to go next level reference, Izzy would use Ultraman Zero moves, given that he's Ultraseven's son.
>>3074165You give Videl a thumb’s up and smile. She earned that win. Videl sits up on her platform, smiling back at you and giving her own thumb’s up. You then telepathically contact Pantea. ‘That was AMAZING! You had her on the ropes, and wow, that finale! Great job on the fight, Pantea!’‘Heh... guess I was just a split second too slow there. Ah well, she won fair and square. Guess I’ll have to train even harder for next time.’‘Man, did you learn that one from Gohan, or mom?’ you ask her excitedly. ‘Hah, and of course Videl comes up with THAT technique.’‘Gohan might have a few surprises in store for you, Peppa. Don’t take fighting him lightly.’ she replies confidently. ‘Thoooough... uh...’ Her voice in your mind grows a bit sheepish.‘What’s up?’‘What did... er... what’d Basilea... mean by-?’‘Beats me. Maybe something my future counterpart got up to? Bah, no fair, you and Gohan got to know about yours.’ You almost pout as you look around, noticing two green blurs dashing back and forth. Dang, that Nail guy’s really giving Piccolo a run for his money.‘...So uh, why’d you cheer for Videl like that?’>A. ‘Cause she’s my best friend, duh!>B. Look, it’s totally not like that, promise!>C. ...There’s, uh, someone else>D. Something else?
>>3074278Nah, would be best to use what looks cool from that series in general.
>>3074278Huh, cool.>>3074280>A.>B.Make it as clear as possible that we're ONLY friends. BFFS.>C.Try to find Cocoa among the crowds
>>3074287>>‘Cause she’s like a big sister to me, duh!Wait, is Pantea like a big sister to Peppa? What kinda relationship do they have? This declaration might be crueler than I intended.
>>3074280>D. -Kshhhh- wha -kshhhh- can't -kshhhh- ou -kssshh- cutting ou -ksssssssshhh-
>>3074280Oh boy.>D. She and I didn't get our match last time we were at the tournament. Were you wanting a rematch?
3074265Right? Using them as bait or to create the wind tunnel effect would be neat, and adds an element of finesse to what's otherwise a bludgeoning attack. I think that could fit into Izumi's style better.>>3074270Incorporating Bits into the actual attack would be too much, but comboing in could work, especially if it's used to immobilize. Plus she could use it without support. My only concern is that it would take a lot of battlefield management to pull off. She could benefit from some foresight in that regard.
>>3074280‘Hey, she and I didn’t get our match last time. I still want that match.’ you retort. ‘Weren’t you wanting a rematch with her anyway?’‘W-well sure but... Gohan...’ Her voice gets even more sheepish.You roll your eyes. ‘Look, she’s my best friend! It’s nothing like that, really! And like, you’re one of my closest friends too, but... come on, Gohan was cheering for you, how could I not even the score just a bit?’‘Okay, okay! Sorry... just, I dunno, been sorta wondering...’‘About what?’ you ask almost accusingly.‘Just... maybe you, you know...’Briefly your eyes glance over the crowds. You notice among the stands a familiar Ki... and see a large banner with your face on it waving around. It brings a smile to your face, but you quickly turn away from both Videl and where you sense Pantea has landed. ‘-KSSSHHHTT- What was th- -KKSSSHHHTT- -reaking up- -KSSSSHHHTT- I can’t- -KSSHHHTT-’‘Peppaaaaa.’‘Ghost Pepper out!’“HRRAAAAAHH!” you hear above you. Wow, dad and uncle Raditz are still going at it? Man, they... wait, what’s that? A figure splashes into the water from above. Oh! It’s that Nail guy. Guess he’s out.“And with that ring-out, we bring the preliminary round to a close!” Ken announces. “THESE SIXTEEN FIGHTERS WILL BE OUR FINALISTS!”Dad and Raditz stop fighting, a little confused... but they realize that there’s only 16 fighters left. Guess both of them qualify! The screens light up as your mugshots appear one after another. So... you, Gohan, Izzy, Videl, Chuu Lee, mom, dad, Raditz, Piccolo, Tien, Kuriza, Beelzebub, 19, Vegeta, a purple elf-alien named Shin, and... Ledgic. Aww dang, aunt Chi-chi and uncle Acer didn’t make it. Nor did Videl’s dad. Well... guess you can’t win ‘em all.(cont.)
>>3074421“Let’s give them all a big round of applause, both for the fighters who made it to the finals and the fighters who gave it their all in these preliminary rounds!” Ken asks the crowds, who more than deliver. You notice the flag with your face on it wave even more frantically, then rub the back of your neck and smile. “The World Tournament Finals will begin in one hour, giving our finalists a chance to enjoy a meal of their choosing, at Mr. Cash’s expense!”The round, bald man appears on the screens again. “I must say I am thoroughly impressed by all the fighters who have gathered here today, both from our humble blue marble and from the stars. You all have fought magnificently! I look forward to see who will rise above the rest and stand as the strongest under the heavens!”Dad and Raditz almost bolt forward at the mention of food, mom in the distance chuckling to herself. You’re all gathered into an elevator, looking around at the various finalists. Izzy too looks around, a mixture of pride and sadness on her face. “...Guess I really was the only one to make it.”“And I just know brobro and Chi-chi are thrilled that you did.” mom tells her.The elevator brings you all to a massive dining hall under the water, with a bright ocean view all around you, and a gigantic buffet table circling the area. Mr. Cash and his family, along with King Furry and the Galactic King, arrive shortly after you all. “Welcome, fighters! Ah, and your highness, I must say you did wonderfully out there.” Mr. Cash walks over to Kuriza, shaking the young alien’s hand.You see the brown-haired boy near them looking around at your group curiously, his expression less bored and more... cautious, but intrigued, you’d guess. Dad, Raditz, and Vegeta already bolt over to the buffett. Getting some grub yourself wouldn’t hurt.>A. Actually nah, you have energy to spare, just take the time to relax>B. Stick with Izzy and Gohan, ask how their fights went>C. Chuu Lee, mom, and Videl seem to be talking about something, wonder what’s up with that>D. Maybe you can get a few words of conversation out of dad ask what he thought of your and Gohan’s fights>E. Mr. Piccolo, what was it like fighting another Namekian?>F. 19! How was your first Tournament fight? Have fun?>G. Tien, good to see you made it. How’d that talk with your students go?>H. Hey, brown-hair guy, don’t worry, we don’t bite!>I. Focus on Ledgic, see what he’s up to>J. Something else?Pick three at most, please.
>>3074426>J. Go get some of those nugget things.>F. 19! How was your first Tournament fight? Have fun?>B. Stick with Izzy and Gohan, ask how their fights went
>>3074426>>3074438Adding >H. Hey, brown-hair guy, don’t worry, we don’t bite!
>>3074426>H. As long as you didn't reach across the plate, anyway. But be honest, is this more or less interesting than getting your own planet?>F>BI really liked those fights, and want to make robot friends.
>>3074448I mean, if we have room to talk in between filling our mouth with space shrimp.
>>3074426>B, F, H.
>>3074438So, what do y'all think, how hardcore of an omnivore is Peppa?
>>3074421Man I gotta wonder what's going through Shin's mind right now, seeing so many mortals possessing such power all gathered in one place. He has to be at least a little bit terrified of how much energy Babidy could easily gather from this tournament.
>>3074484Something like this?
>>3074486Or perhaps more like this
>>3074484>>3074486>"How the crap did all these mortals get so strong? What are all these monkeys doing with such high power? Oh Zeno did that girl beat Kibito?!"Shin must be having a silent panic attack.
>>3074489But probably wants to do this
>>3074490Shin probably knew a while ago that Kibito was kibeaten.
>>3074490>cue laughing Kai of TimeChrono: Their your problem now!
Shin probably thinks no one here is that strong, at least compared to Frieza, and he's way stronger than Frieza, and Frieza's son is weaker than Frieza, and Kuriza's about as strong as the rest of these guys.
>>3074498This level of reasoning is possible for the one you call Kaioshin.
>>3074493>>3074494I would almost feel bad for him, but then I see that face >>3074514 and I gotta say, he's got it coming.
>>3074518Guy should really check in on his employees.King Kai would've filled him in. This is his sector after all.
>>3074518>>3074526I presume he spends most of his time hanging out with his dead friends on vacation.
>>3074535Hey, given that new arc of Super coming up with the goat, that means the ones who got absorbed by Buu never really died. So I guess he makes trips to see North and West if they haven't already reincarnated. Can kais even reincarnate, or are they above mortality?
>>3074426https://youtu.be/QeSMbXaz7f4You pull your arms around Gohan and Izzy. “Your matches must have been awesome! What was it like, tell me? Was that pink guy scary at all? Ooh, ooh, and what about Nappa? I bet he put up one hell of a fight!”They both pull your arms off them. “Nappa was a pretty tough fight, but he wasn’t the biggest surprise. Mr. Yamcha and I teamed up with a boy named Zarid, a bit older than me, who proved to be a surprisingly good fighter.”“Waaait, that Zarid kid Sachie was shouting at was in your group?” Izzy asks.“Oh, yeah, I guess that Sachie girl was in yours.”You rub the back of your neck. “Uhh... little lost here. Zarid? Sachie?”Gohan and Izzy go over their matches and the allies they made along the way, along with some of their opponents. So the other ghouls were part of their groups. Hah, and the ghost girl sounds like she was really nice. After telling them about your battle with Basilea, Izzy remembers. “Oh! Right! The big pink guy was a Kai!”“A what?!” you and Gohan exclaim, catching the attention of mom, Piccolo, Beelzebub, and the purple alien. Actually... now that you think about it, he’s wearing the same outfit that the pink guy was. Is he a Kai too?“Yeah! But then Sachie and I were able to work together with the other girls and we managed to get him out of bounds. Ahhh it was so cool you guys! Kinda feel bad that she’s out of the Tournament already...”You chuckle as you fill up a plate with about a kilogram of shrimp and another kilogram of nuggets, with some lettuce on the side to go with it.. “Heehee, good that you two got to make some friends, at least.” As Gohan and Izzy take their turns getting plates, you spot the brown-haired boy nervously approach the buffet. “Hey, don’t worry, we don’t bite. I mean, so long as you don’t try and reach over the plate. Then, well, my brother might nibble a bit.”“Oh you’re one to talk.” Gohan grumbles.Sticking your tongue out at your brother, you continue. “Be honest though, this more, or less interesting than owning your own planet?”“Well... certainly a bit more exciting, I’ll admit.” the boy replies. “All of you are so strong...”Holding your plate with your tail, you offer to shake his hand. “Name’s Son Peppa. And this is my brother, Gohan, and our cousin, Izumi.”“...So I’ve heard.” he responds as he hesitantly shakes. “Monty Cash.”“Nice to meet you, Monty!” A friendly grin from you seems to ease him just a bit. “So, I also heard this whole thing was partly your idea.”“W-well... it was a bit more selfish when I was younger. I just kinda... wanted to see some cool aliens fighting, ones that wouldn’t, you know, try to take over the planet or something.” he admits. “Guess I’d not been paying enough attention to what’s back here at home.”(cont.)
>>3074582“Well, we are definitely born and raised here on Earth.” Gohan chimes in. “Families might’ve been from another world, but even they have spent most of their lives here. Except for Izzy’s mom, that is. She’s the daughter of the Ox King. 100% human.”“I... see.” Monty places some steak on his plate, though you’re not sure you’ve seen that type before. You glance at the name of it. Bombus steak, huh? Welp, that’s going on your plate too!“Spoiler though: don’t be too surprised if I come out on top. I’m aiming for the title of ‘Champion,’ and even against the best of the best, I plan on claiming it!” you declare with confidence, earning a dismissive scoff from Vegeta and a couple playful laughs from mom and dad. You notice mom’s group have moved to talk with the Kai guy. Okay good, though weird that he looks so nervous.Monty looks at you with a mixture of doubt and surprise. “How... old are you, exactly?”“Thirteen. Mom was even younger when she claimed the title of Champion, actually.” you reply very matter-of-factly. You next notice that the boy’s parents seem to be watching the two of you converse with... an oddly approving look in their eyes. Weird. “My brother’s the same age, actually. Cousin’s a couple days older than us.”“And don’t you forget it.” Izzy adds in.The four of you find a table... well, you more direct everyone to a table, close to 19, the robot girl looking out at the aquatic life. “Heeeey, 19! How’s it going? How was your first Tournament fight? Having fun?”She looks over with her usual cool, nonchalant expression. “I will admit that the fights were more... interesting than I initially anticipated. Still, I managed to pass through the preliminary rounds without much difficulty.”“Who were you up against?” Gohan asks her. “Any standouts?”“An alligator man calling himself ‘Skater Gator’ was above the standards for most Earthlings. Additionally, Launch was among my opponents.” She looks down at her hands. “It was... a new experience for me. Training the skills I already possess against those who wish to help me improve is one thing, but... this was one of the first times I ever really had to give it my all against an opponent near my equal. I think I am finally starting to understand what Chiaotzu means in finding my own path.” A soft, small, but telling smile appears on her face. “To answer your earlier question, then, Son Peppa, yes. I believe I did have fun.”“Glad to hear. And, uh, sorry for kinda... ruining your chance to go against Chiaotzu yourself.” Izzy comments.“There is no issue with that. I will not use lethal force. Probably.” 19 responds in her usual monotone demeanor, causing Izzy to gulp and Monty to look at her nervously. The smile on her face becomes a bit more teasing as she looks at Izumi.(cont.)
>>3074584“You’re scary when you tell jokes.” your cousin sighs out.“Do not worry. I am not offended that you needed a moment to catch on to that.”“...Is she taunting me?” Izzy asks you, not sure if she should be offended or not instead.You giggle again. Ah, she’s great. As you take a bite of the bombus steak... ooh, it has an oddly sweet flavor to go with it, like a glazed ham, though the meat is still different... you notice that Piccolo seems to be smiling to himself as he leans against a wall, enjoying a melon soda. Ledgic on the other hand sits alone, far away from everyone with a glass of wine of some sort.>A. So Monty, who’s impressed you the most so far, out of all the fighters?>B. Man, Launch, is a pretty good fighter herself, I’ll have to be careful around you, 19>C. Ghost Pepper to Momma Bird, status on Kai Guy?>D. Hey Gohan, think we’ll have to fight each other in the first round?>E. Izzy, any thoughts on the other finalists?>F. Something else?
>>3074586>F. Man, this is what life should be like! Just a lot of talking and eating. Ooh, and training, but don't forget fighting! But you have to space out your fighting moments to where they have weight by having longer periods where it's just talking and eating.
>>3074586>C. So is he a space elf, or a kai? I haven't seen a kai, but I don't remember you saying you've ever met a kai in person either.
>>3074589>Someone provides a picture of King Kai for us>We compare it to the 'kai' over there, scrutinizing every detail and similarity>Put down the photo, nod to ourself, affirming that we've concluded the truth of the matter.
>>3074586>C. Ghost Pepper to Momma Bird, status on Kai Guy?
>>3074596>"Yup, that's a kai alright!"
>>3074586>C>AIt's horribly impolite to do two things at once, bur I'm actually curious about Monty. Did he notice skill or was he fascinated by flashy fights? He is sort of the reason for being here, and could probably give good layman view.
>>3074610I'll back this too.
So does Izumi have a regular height for a girl her age?
>>3074586As everyone digs in to their food, you think to contact mom and check on what she’s found out while you do the same. ‘Ghost Pepper to Momma Bird, come in Momma Bird.’‘Copy Ghost Pepper, Momma Bird here, over.’‘Status on that Kai Guy? Izzy said the big guy dressed like him is one. Over.’‘Kai Guy confirmed. Piccolo stated such. Trying to find out why he’s here, over.’‘He seems nervous, Momma Bird. Anything bothering him? Over.’‘Guessing it’s related to Ledgic and the Demon King, he seems to be trying to catch someone in the act. Beelzebub doesn’t trust this guy one bit, but he’s staying oddly quiet about this. Trying to get what I can out of him. Watch your back in the finals, Ghost Pepper, there’s a lot of suspicious activity around here. Momma bird out.’“...mixed with ramen, and allows her to better channel her Ki, apparently. It releases her normally dormant hidden strength.” Izumi finishes explaining.“So that’s why I felt her Ki skyrocket.” Gohan comments. “Wonder if she could visit Trip some time, or maybe Konpei, so she can learn to do that on her own.”(cont.)
>>3074645You notice Monty staring at you as you devour most of the food on your plate quickly. “...Something on my face?” you ask, reaching for a napkin.“N-no, no, uh... just not used to see someone eat that much that quickly.” He takes a bite of his bombus steak.“High metabolism, needs all the fuel I can give it when I’ve got something intense like this coming up.” you explain, finishing your veggies. “So Monty, who’s impressed you the most out of all the fighters so far.”“...That’s honestly hard to say."he admits. “A lot of you seem to be so strong, with so many flashy tricks at your disposal.”“Ah, but it’s not mere tricks that wins the day. It’s the right combination of strength, skill, and just a pinch of luck that brings victory.” You stand, ready to get yourself another plate. “What’s more, it’s also learning to make the most out of some bad luck. Sometimes things just don’t go the way you want them to. So it pays to have a backup plan of some sort.”“Huh. You sure you’re just 13?” he questions. “Because you sound like someone with years of experience with this.”“Hah, that’s because I am. I’m the Junior Champion, remember? My mom’s been Champ three times over, and even my dad’s been declared Champion once.” A confident smirk appears on your face. “And I intend to surpass both of them.” Of course... that’s something easier said than done, isn’t it? But even that thought just gets you more excited. So what if there is something nefarious afoot? You’re ready to face all challenges head-on!https://youtu.be/djps3pGVK1c>GOHAN AND ZARID SOCIAL LINK 1: COMPLETE!>IZUMI AND SACHIE SOCIAL LINK 1: COMPLETE!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #5 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 this thread. Thank you all for sticking through this for so long! The Prelims are over, and next time we’ll start up on the Finals! I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?
>>3074647Yes, I had fun. These were definitely the most entertaining preliminaries we've ever had, and I'm not just saying that cuz it's a low bar.
>>3074647Hmm, Monty's eyes strike a chord in me, he's a viable candidate if doesn't work out with Cocoa.
>>3074647This thread was a blast! The fights were fun, the teamwork was great, and I loved the character bits we got. Like how Gohan and Izzy are coming in to their own. And nice that they even got Social Links too. The Ghoul School added a nice bit of variety too. Looking forward to the Finals!>>3074659Let's hook him up with Videl.
>>3074669>The Ghoul School added a nice bit of variety too.The Ghoul School could've shown up a lot earlier had Peppa gone to learn at Baba's. In fact, it was almost so had I not been in the middle of a no data zone on the road for thanksgiving.But Peppa has other friends now, like Cocoa, that she probably would not have met if it weren't for that lack of service. It was probably fated for Cocoa and Peppa to meet.
>>3074647Good run, the winding road that brought us here was a nice build up. The matches were really different too, even from one to another! It's also good to see some new faces in among the usual crowd. Very happy that the younger crew is getting fleshed out, both in development and growing the cast.I really want to throw some false positives Pantea's way to mess with her apparent matchmaker inclinations during, and after, the tournament. It'd be fun to see Sachie inducted into the girl-gang, I think she'd be a nice fit. Zarid and Gohan need to hang out more, there's a lot of similarity between them, but digging down there could be some neat differences. And Monty is, interesting. Possibly becoming friends with the tournament coordinator's son wouldn't exactly be a bad thing.But I'm primed for some drama that can only be resolved with the power of the punch.
>>3065180Oh yeah, the drawing was based off this.
Hmm. There are some fighters that we didn't see. I wonder if we'll ever see Yaochun again? Guy was the first person to master the Raioken after all.
>>3074691Peppa and Cocoa are cute together, still supporting the idea of them getting together, so long as we don't rush into it.>>3074692Almost hoping that we can prevent the whole Buu stuff from happening. Maybe Shin seeing all these strong fighters around will get him to change his plans a bit. Though at the same time I wouldn't mind us making Buu an ally.
>>3075381>Though at the same time I wouldn't mind us making Buu an ally.Why's that, so you can have chocolate and candy whenever you wish? I see right through you!
>>3075381>so long as we don't rush into it.Yeah, you don't wanna make the mistake of coming on too soon.
>>3075381I'm still up in the air on Cocoa, but she is a sweetie and worth protecting. Loads of time to consider where things end up. I think, anyway? We're veering into things I've only got a cursory knowledge of, in addition to being divergent.If there's a big twist like with Ozotto, a Buu negation could be amusing. But we kind of put learning more about that on the back burner to deal with the ninjas, right? Seems like we're starting out from a poor position.
>>3075381>>3075544We should consider Giru and Baby as well, since I just know there is something suspicious involving them. We'll have to take that Grand Tour eventually.
>>3075644Grand Tour or Stardust Crusade?
>>3075644Plus, you know...all the other tuffle parasites that were sent out besides Baby.
>>3074651>>3074669>>3074692Thank you all for playing, glad you had fun! I must admit that I did really like writing all of this, it was nice to have some variety in opponents.>>3074669>>3074691Am glad that went over well, actually. There's a chance y'all can see them again another time, over at Baba's Palace, or potentially elsewhere. Up to you guys though.>>3074659Do note that Monty barely knows Peppa. While he is warming up to her, Gohan, and Izzy with how casual they are around him, he still feels like he needs to be cautious around them.>>3075381I'll say this: there is a chance to prevent Buu's resurrection, but it will not be as easy as it could have been prevented in canon. Ledgic isn't the only person who's got a Majin mark, after all.>>3075544>>3075644>>3075706>>3075751Do try to keep it in mind. Someone may be very interested in what's going on here on Earth.
>>3076288So can the Majin tattoo be placed somewhere besides the forehead?
>>3076288Ghouls were fun and all, but dunno about them being regulars or anything. Could be nice to have a rematch though, maybe next time someone needs a fortune from Baba....Maybe we could try the gauntlet? Ooh, ooh, actually, get Zarid and Sachie to try it. Good training for them.
>>3076319>Ghouls were fun and all, but dunno about them being regulars or anything.Yeah, if Peppa had grown up with them as her friends it would be one thing, but she has her own circle of friends now. She would fit right in as a weremonkey though. I hope we can do that Gauntlet, though why wouldn't Sachie and Zarid go back to Japan?
>>3076336Probably would, but Gohan and Izumi did get along with them both, and I would hope they can hang out some more. Definitely want to learn more about Sachie's ramen thing.
>>3076355Probably has something to do with the nature of ramen being slurped and curling on itself creating a spiral in her tummy which circulates the blocked chakra path there allowing the energy to flow through her body right as well as the energy she gets from eating.
>>3072771>You lay on your back for just a moment, panting heavily. You... you did it! You WON! The two of you WON!
>>3076294I always assumed the Majin mark was placed on the forehead as it takes control of the Third Eye Chakra.
>>3076319Yeah, no need to make them regulars. Can agree to Sachie and Zarid though, Gohan especially needs more guy friends.>>3076770Never thought about it like that but it makes sense.
>>3076787Izumi could use some more of her own friends as well, she did get along well with the ghost.
>>3076770So is Tien immune to getting Majin'd?
>>3077261Well he'd have resistance to it, but you need to accept the Majin mark.Which most likely mean Ledgic consciously agreed. Unless Babadi's magic got a boost.Tien was corrupted by Shen in his youth to be an assassin, so even though he's redeemed he still has that connection to corruption. >Due to being raised by Master Shen, Tien lost the ability to use the myriad powers of his third eye for good purposes.So Tien still could be Majinized, but only if he agreed too it. Though I feel this would inhibit the power of his opened third eye, perhaps even close it.
I'm assuming there's no Juniors this time around? Or is that an intermission?
>>3079033From the first thread,>No Junior Division to hold me back this time!
>>3079084I figured that was because she's old enough to be out of the division. It's U-13.
>>3079111Previous thread had the sign-ups require Goku or Maple to sigh their names by the kids. So pretty sure there's no Junior Division.
>>3079033>>3079084>>3079111>>3079150We should hold a special Jr. tournament for those youngsters with potential. Maybe making it less a fighting tournament and make it like Takeshi's Castle.
>>3079150Wasn't that because they're still underage? Like a parent signing a waiver saying it's okay for them to compete?Not that I'm pushing for a Junior tournament, as Daikon and Baozi would probably dominate, just curious.
>>3076294>>3076770>>3076787>>3077261>>3077324Recall that Yakon's symbol is on his chest.>>3079033>>3079084>>3079111>>3079150>>3079282>>3079396There is indeed no Junior Division this time around.>>3076319>>3076336>>3076787All righty, I'll keep that in mind.

>>3076355>Definitely want to learn more about Sachie's ramen thing.>>3074645>“...mixed with ramen, and allows her to better channel her Ki, apparently. It releases her normally dormant hidden strength.” Izumi finishes explaining.We already did, or would have. Izumi already knows and Peppa wasn't paying attention.
