Last time, on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Kai! With preparations finally complete, Earth’s heroes return to the planet to free it from Baby’s control and stop the Neo Machine Mutant once and for all! Izumi facing off against a member of the Cell Sentai as her group secures the Sacred Water, and Gohan and Peppa taking on Godzilla and Gamera, managing to free both from Baby’s control. However, Baby himself escapes and even manages to get Lapis to take Chuu Lee! Trying to see where he’s fled to now that the Earth is free from his influence, Acer and Izumi discover a hidden fortress in high orbit above Earth… and that Baby’s taken the entirety of Capsule Corp up there! The final battle against Baby is about to begin! Good luck, Gohan! Good luck, Peppa! Good luck, Izumi!

“And nobody can get anything through there?” Acer questioned.

“No, it’s blocked off completely.” Maple confirms.

The gathered group look up into the sky. Baby’s little trump card, a massive fortress orbiting the Earth. And he’s made off with the entirety of Capsule Corp, along with Krillin, Chuu Lee, and Pantea’s group. The Earth may be free from his conquest, but so long as he’s still up there, it’s still in danger. Especially if he plans on doing something with those who have Instant Transmission. And it’s a good bet he has the Cell Sentai up there too.

“So, what should we do?” Goku asks. “Because I’m ready to finish this.”

“On that, we agree, Kakarot. I’ve had enough of Baby’s tricks.” Vegeta affirms.

“There’s still some things we should do on Earth.” Tien comments. “The planet’s most likely going to be in chaos for while as everyone recovers from the effects of Baby’s control.”

“As much as I’d love to bolt right over to Suno and Daikon, Baby’s still posing a threat. Count me in for the team taking him down.”

Gohan, Peppa, Izumi, what will you do?

Gohan:

>A. Supreme Kai trained me to exorcise beings like Baby, I’ll be needed up there facing him directly
>B. Better to stick with Maple and try to get the nanomachines out of Lapis and whoever else he’s infected, making sure he doesn’t go after her too
>C. Gonna be needed on Earth, I’ll stay down here and be backup if needed
>D. Something else?

Peppa:

>A. I failed to stop Baby before, I’m not letting him slip away again, I’m taking him down
>B. I’m worried about Videl and Pantea, I’ll focus on finding them first
>C. Can’t let Baby try and gain control of me, especially since he’s going after those with Instant Transmission, I’ll stay on Earth
>D. Something else?

Izumi:

>A. Ain’t letting another person fall under his influence, especially since I’m immune to it. I’m fighting Baby directly
>B. Best to stick with Acer and Chi-chi, see what their plan is
>C. Check with Tapion and Minotia, they might have an idea
>D. Something else?

Additionally, which would y’all like to focus on first? Gohan, Peppa, or Izumi?

Gohan crosses his arms and looks towards Maple confidently. “Supreme Kai trained me to exorcise things like Baby, I’ll be needed up there. I’m going.”

Izumi likewise looked to her parents confidently. “Ain’t letting another person fall under Baby’s influence, especially since I’m immune to it. I’m going.”

“Izzy-” Chi-chi’s about to tell her no, but Acer stops her.

“Then we’re sticking with you. Even with that form, you’ll need all the help you can get.” The blonde Tuffle pats his daughter’s head… looking just a little awkward given she’s actually gotten taller than him, but intent remaining the same.

“And I failed to stop Baby before. I’m not letting him slip away again. I’m taking him down.” you declare.

Goku places his hand on your shoulder and smiles, Maple placing her hands on her hips. “Anyone else?”

“I am going as well.” 19 states. A soft smile comes across her face. “I owe Pantea, and… Earth is my home too. I will protect it.”

“Minotia?” Tapion asks his brother.

“Like there’d be any doubt. We’re in.” the boy affirms.

“I shall join you.” Soba adds. “If this monster wishes to misuse my people’s abilities, he shall be sorely mistaken.”

“Izzy, I-” Sachie tries to join in, but is stopped by Zarid.

“We’ll stay here. Sachie, as much as I know you’d like to help, this is a bit out of our league. Our skills would be better utilized down here. We’ll need to make sure he didn’t get to Penguin Village too.” Zarid looks to Gohan and Izzy, giving them a thumb’s up. “Best of luck.”

“My brother’s up there. My husband’s up there. I’m going to save them.” Lazuli adds. “I lost them both once already. I’m not letting that happen again.”

Most everyone else there decides to stay on Earth. Maple moves forward, standing on top of a flat rock to address everyone. “It’s decided, then. We’ll hit Baby hard and hit him quick. This comes to an end today.”

“Coward probably took all of Capsule Corp. so we wouldn’t just blast him out of the sky.” Raditz adds in. “Let’s show him why you don’t mess with Earth!”

Everyone gives a cheer. Mom takes a moment to focus on where the orbiting station is located, her and Acer using a crystal ball to keep track of it. “…Still kinda hard to focus on them, but I think we’ve got two distinct groups. One might be Capsule Corp… the other might be the Cell Sentai.”

“I’m going for the Capsule Corp. group.” Gohan states.

“I’m going for the Cell Sentai.” Izzy adds in. “I’ve got unfinished business with one of them.”

>A. I’ll go to the Capsule Corp. one too
>B. I’m gonna take on that Cell Sentai as well
>C. Can you locate Baby directly? I’ll help you sense him out if you need, just let me at ‘em!

“I’ll help take on the Cell Sentai too. They’re gonna present a clear threat.” You place your fingers on your forehead. “Lemme sense them out too.”

https://youtu.be/mH-OVhCu-Mc

Dad, Vegeta, Izzy, uncle Acer, aunt Chi-chi, and Tapion and Minotia move to you. The rest move to Gohan and Maple. Targets locked. The two groups give each other thumb’s ups, and you’re finally off. You arrive in… an area you weren’t quite expecting. A wide, open area inside the station, spherical, giving you… very distinct memories of M2, like a vast field altered into some metallic parody of it. The whole place like an island turned into an inside-out sphere, with even some water passing through it and making some little lakes. Some natural dirt remains on the ground, and you can even spot a few still-organic plants in the area… though those aren’t the only green things waiting for you. On top of a cliff stand five figures, with a sixth hovering in air above them. The sixth in the air smiles wide. “So you decided to come after us, did you?” He looks slightly humanoid, though possesses large bug wings that keep him hovering in the air, a crown of sorts on top of his head, and a swaying tail coming out his back.

Dad cracks his knuckles as his hair spikes up, turning blonde as he transforms. “Heh, third time’s the charm, ey Melanos?”

The bug-man shows… an oddly appreciative smile. “Indeed. I really do hate how so many of our interactions have been cut short. I know you and Vegeta would rather settle this yourselves than let your pals do it.”

A more lanky, spiky, tall one below him smirks and leans forward with his hands on his hips. And… wow, Basilea was right. He has a kind of “popped collar” around his neck. “Short stuff’s probably been cursing himself he couldn’t take the whole lot of us down on his own.”

“You’re going to regret that, Osteos.” Vegeta powers up to Super Saiyan, staring down his foe.

“Betcha I won’t.” His tail sways behind him. “What I might regret is not going after someone tougher… like the girl who beat you.”

Vegeta glares hatefully at the bugman and powers up further into Super Saiyan 2. “Okay, THAT you’re going to regret.”

The most humanoid, blue-haired one with elf-like ears laughs manically, forming a spear that looks like the tails each of the group has. “Izumi! So glad you came! And you brought your little friends, too!”

“YOU!” the one with a “tail” coming out of his head growls at Tapion and Minotia. “You’re going to regret denying me my little treats! I hope the anguish you’ll feel will make you EXTRA tasty!” He licks his lips.

Tapion, Izzy, and Minotia all group together. “Hemos. Neuros. I guess we DO have unfinished business.” Her hand out, you hear a little sound accompany her as she calls out, “HENSHIN! YUUSHA!”

Acer and Chi-chi are about to head to her when a deeper, more sinister voice addresses them. “Acer. Chi-chi. Where do you think you’re going?” The widest of the group asks, arms looking almost comically oversized on its frame… one slinking down and stretching like Piccolo’s and pointing at them both. “They have unfinished business. You’ll have to make due with us.”

Next to him, the largest and bulkiest of the group looks at the pair dismissively. “You sure, Adipos? They won’t pose as much a challenge as any of the others. Peppa there could definitely put up more of a fight.”

“Heh heh heh heh… I’m sure, Mytos. Though if you wanna take her…”

“Everyone ready?” Melanos asks his group. They cheer in affirmation. “Then let’s take them down! CELL SENTAI!”

“POSE!” Osteos declares, each one striking a pose in the style of, though not quite the same as, the Ginyu Force. Here they come!

As they all leap at your group, you focus your eyes on the one challenging Vegeta, and quickly power up to Super Saiyan 2 yourself. Timing it perfectly, you teleport to Vegeta right as the bugman clashes with him, delivering a kick to his head that sends him back. “Tougher? Buddy… I’m the Tuffest.” You adjust your giggles and smirk.

“Are you SERIOUS?!” Vegeta growls at you.

“He’s trying to get under your skin by taunting you. The sooner he’s dealt with the sooner we’re through with these losers.”

“I can handle him on my own, thank you.”

“I know you can. But it’s better you save your best for something actually worth your time.” you tell the Saiyan prince.

Vegeta’s glare softens into just a frown as he notices Osteos stand back up, dusting himself off. “Tch. You’re not going to take ‘no’ for an answer are you?”

“I’m not doubting your abilities. I know you’re perfectly capable of beating him on your own. But again, save your best for a foe that actually demands it. I’ll help you conserve your strength.”

“Ooooh, an interesting strategy.” Osteos comments. He lifts several of the broken rocks he crashed into, metallic and regular, via telekinesis. “Though shame on you, Peppa. You’re just covering for him, trying to hurt his pride.”

Vegeta pulls one hand back and charges it like a Kamehameha, then thrusts it forward. Osteos leaps out of the way and flings the rocks at the Saiyan prince, only for you to use the Power Pole to knock ‘em out of the sky and extend it high enough that it smacks him right back down into Vegeta’s beam. He grumbles at you again. “I didn’t-”

“Less snide remarks more kicking his butt!” you declare, teleporting to Osteos and grabbing the Power Pole like a baseball bat, flinging him at Vegeta. His fist slams into the bugman to stop him as his free hand forms a sphere of Ki, swirling it around and smashing it into Osteos’ face.

Izzy takes notice of it as the Cell is knocked away again. “…Did he seriously just use Sachie’s attack?” She questions. Her focus goes back to the humanoid Cell, sword clashing against his spear as Minotia and Tapion use their barriers to help shield her from the head-tail of other one. Acer and Chi-chi are having some trouble with the bigger pair, the two just barely avoiding Mytos’ fist as it smashes into a metallic cliff.

Meanwhile, dad and Melanos duke it out in midair, the two… actually kinda enjoying the fight. “Shame you’re sided with these bad guys, you don’t really act like Baby or Gero or Towa.”

“Shame you’ll only last for a short while, Son Goku.” A chop to dad’s neck is narrowly avoided, Melanos likewise dodging one of Goku’s kicks. “Having someone like you helps test my abilities.”

Osteos gets up again, and in spite of the damage you and Vegeta have done, he looks no worse for wear. “So. My turn?” he asks, forming… a massive amount of Spirit Bits around him, nearly 30, each one about the size of your head. He then pulls his hands back as he starts to power up.

You spin the Power Pole around and move with Vegeta as he dashes at Osteos, deflecting blasts from the Spirit Bits surrounding him with relative ease… at first. As more and more fire off at you, several of them charged with Lightning, Fire, and even Ice Magic, it becomes harder and harder to deflect each blast, causing you to need to use Wind Magic just to deflect them all. Saaaave for one, that hits your tail and gives you a jolt that almost causes you to topple over, with you awkwardly forcing yourself back up with the staff.

Vegeta finally makes it to Osteos, bringing his fist back and thrusting it forward with a hard right hook… but right as it is about to make contact, the Cell catches it. His aura flares red as he speaks simply, “Kaio-ken.”

He flings Vegeta aside and hounds you with the Spirit Bits, forcing you away as he chases after the Saiyan prince. Grabbing Vegeta by the tail, he dashes into one of the metallic cliffs half a kilometer away and slams Vegeta hard into it. Osteos then leaps up from it, snapping his fingers and causing an explosion of flame where Vegeta landed, circling over and forming what looks like a pair of… swords of some kind that look similar to his exoskeletal armor. One curved like a katana, the other straight and broad. The both of them with odd, jagged edges on them, making them superficially resemble thunderbolts.

Off in the distance you see most everyone else still holding their own, Acer and Chi-chi finally holding their own against the brutish fighters attacking them, Izumi managing to even gain the upper hand against Neuros as Minotia and Tapion both use the Kaio-ken themselves to gain just a bit more power to use against Hemos, their swords slashing across his chest and leaving noticeable gashes. Dad and Melanos keep at it, until dad is able to gain the upper hand by grabbing Melanos by the tail and flinging him right in Osteos’ way, forcing him there by using the Raio-ken to catch up and pummel him until close enough to the sword-wielding fighter that a hard kick guarantees they crash into one another, saving Vegeta from the incoming attack.

“You two okay?” dad asks.

“Mngh.” Vegeta grumbles, putting out a bit of flame that managed to stick to his hair.

Goku turns to the two foes. “So. Two on three, or want me to just focus on Melanos?” he asks.

>A. Two on three!
>B. Keep Melanos away from us, we’ll stop Osteos!

Looking to dad, you smirk. “Oooh, now there’s an idea!” Your aura sparks further. “RAIO-KEN!” you yell out, you and dad both striking the pair of Cells, keeping them from one another at the start. While you can sense that Osteos’ power has slightly eclipsed your own, your speed is preventing him from managing to counter effectively.

Vegeta takes advantage of it as he takes aim, charging a sphere of Ki in front of his palm. He stalls firing it, waiting for Osteos’ red aura to fade, before finally calling out, “BIG BANG ATTACK!”

You dash away, the Cell bringing up his swords to try and knock it away. You use this chance to smack both blades away with your Power Pole, causing Vegeta’s attack to hit dead-on. A titanic explosion echoes through the area. That was definitely enough to damage him… but you can still sense him right where he was. When the smoke clears, you see that the blast actually managed to destroy his arms. And yet… he doesn’t show any real worry over it. “That was impressive. You’re actually displaying teamwork, and with the Tuffle you hate the most!” he praises Vegeta.

“Rub it in any further and I’m going to pull the rest of your limbs off you oversized insect!” Vegeta growls out angrily.

Osteos’ arms regrow… and then an extra pair jut out from his back, the two on the back catching the blades you knocked into the air. “Mmm yes. Definitely going to need a… taste of that.” His tail sways behind him.

Out of the corner of your eye you see dad again clashing with Melanos, dodging tail strikes and swerving his body around as he delivers a sharp elbow to the bugman’s gut. Dad then headbutts Melanos hard enough that he starts to fall to the ground. Bringing his hands back, dad chases after. “Kamehame…!”

Stopping right before he hits the ground, Melanos grins wide, hands up as he begins to form a circle of Ki above his body. “That’s it. Right into my-”

“HAAAAA!” Goku turns back and fires the blast, the beam shooting into the other side of the habitat, blasting apart some bits of dirt and rocketing Goku forward. Expecting Goku to punch him, Melanos keeps trying to form the ring of Ki. Instead, dad readies his legs for a kick, getting under the ring of Ki and kicking Melanos in the gut once more, hard enough that it breaks some of the armor.

Oooh, idea! You lock on to Melanos’ Ki and place your fingers on your head with your left hand, quickly appearing next to him and grabbing him by the tail. You drag him up right as he starts to catch his breath and start to spin on the ground, swinging him around as you lock on to Osteos next. Okay, here goes! You teleport away again right as you’re about to fling him away! …And Osteos catches him with telekinesis.

“Nice save.” Melanos thanks, regenerating some of the damage dad did to him. “Got Vegeta in your sights?”

Tail lashing behind him, Osteos nods. “Yeah. Hope this new attitude’s given him a sweeter taste. No fun if it’s ALL bitter.”

“Go ahead and try it. You’ll come to regret it soon enough.” Vegeta declares, charging up two spheres of Ki in his hands.

“Melanos, now!” Osteos demands as he leaps forward. Vegeta’s about to fire at him, but his body freezes in place. You see Melanos hold him telekinetically with his right hand, charging an attack with another… wait that’s…!

“SPIRAL BOLT CANNON!” He yells as he fires at you, an electrified drilling beam barely missing you. In the split second you have to react, you use the Clothes Beam to toss out a large “plush” goat, not actually filled with any plush, towards Osteos. The arms holding the swords on his back slice it to bits, expecting an attack… and getting a glitter explosion instead!

“W-WHAT THE?!” Osteos is caught off-guard, blinded and just barely missing Vegeta. Melanos is likewise confused by the attack, enough that his grip on Vegeta loosens. Vegeta delivers an elbow strike to the back of Osteos’ neck, caught by the “popped collar” of his. “Heh, what was that supposed to-AGH!”

The elbow strike was a distraction as Vegeta blasts the bugman’s tail, firing again and again until it’s blasted off. He lets out a yell of pain, Vegeta moving back to you as Melanos regroups with Osteos. The brief moment to breathe allows you to see an increasingly exhausted Tapion and Minotia standing with Izzy. They’ve taken some damage, but looks like they’re still in the clear, Hemos livid as his head-tail’s singed and burning, Neuros with a manic smile on his face. Acer and Chi-chi move to them, Adipos heading to Hemos and, to your surprise, healing the damage done to his headtail as Mytos looks like he’s about the charge them all like a mad bull. Dad meanwhile regroups with you and Vegeta.

“You can’t keep this up forever.” Goku states.

“Oh? You’re really overestimating yourselves if you believe you’ve got the stamina to actually wear us down.” Osteos comments.

“Let me guess, stalling to let Maple’s group ‘rescue’ everyone?” Melanos asks with a sly smirk.

“As if!” Izzy yells up at him. “They’ve got more than enough to be able to handle whoever Baby has as his minions. No, I think you know why we’re here.” Her eyes lock back on to Neuros. “Rematches aside, that is.”

“Aww, am I not your favorite anymore?” Neuros asks mockingly. “But we’re having such FUN!”

“Ahhh, but of course. You’re going to try to take Baby on.” Melanos chuckles. “You’re not ready. Not even close.”

“And what exactly are we not ready for?” you ask dismissively. “Baby running and hiding again? Yeah, I said it!” You point upwards. “I know you can hear me you big dumb Baby! Whatcha gonna do about it, huh?!”

“Yeah! You gonna spend all this time cowering fear of us, or you gonna show yourself and face the music?!” Izzy joins in.

“Heh. Well would you listen to that. Your supposed fellow Tuffles are calling you out, Baby.” even Vegeta adds his thoughts, crossing his arms and smirking. “For as much as some of them annoy me, at least THEY know what being a warrior is about.”

Upping the ante, you decide to try to mimic Baby’s voice again. Ah, how did it go? Something like… “Oh and don’t think you’re off the hook either, Cell Chumps! The great and mighty Baby will boss you around like a petulant child!”

To your surprise, they don’t actually get mad at that. Melanos even starts to laugh. “Hahahaha! Okay, that’s pretty spot-on. Impressive.”

‘Pep… pa…’

Oh good. So he’s been listening in. “You wanna show yourself, Baby? Or you wanna just keep hiding in whatever little bunker you’ve holed yourself up in.”

The ground under you begins to rumble. The curved surface of the habitat starts to shift and reform, the metallic turf reshaping into something that almost looks like a face… just like you’d seen General Rildo do on M2. As the form reshapes, you feel the entire place give off a noticeable amount of Ki. “Who’s hiding, Son Peppa? Did you really think I’d leave when I have ALL of you right where I want you?” Baby’s voice asks from all around you.

“Whaaaat the hell is this?” Izzy asks in slight disbelief.

The face finally takes proper shape. Baby looks down at you all. “Yeahahahahahaha! Welcome, my little guests, to ME.” You feel the gravity start to intensify, the air weighing down on you and taking on a slightly reddish tint. Starting off at 10x that of Earth, then increasing more and more as Baby speaks. “Now, how about you all take a moment to… sit back and RELAX!”

Powerful gusts of wind, amplified by the ever-increasing gravity, push against all of you, causing everyone to brace themselves. The Cell Sentai regroup back to the cliff they started on, Baby’s laughter echoing through the area. You start to notice some bits of silver specks in the wind- OH NO. Before you can say anything, Chi-chi calls out to you all. “Everyone, brace yourselves!” She sends out several Spirit Bits to form barriers around those that might need it, Minotia, Tapion, and Izzy all protected, though the gravity starts to become harder and harder for them to bare. You use the Power Pole and some Wind Magic to keep yourself guarded as Chi-chi’s barrier moves to protect you, dad managing to avoid some of the bits of silver.

Vegeta though gets a small bit on his glove. Everyone lets out a gasp… except for Goku. Baby starts to laugh manically as the silver moves from his glove to his arm. “Ah, prince of Saiyans, so you will be the first to fall?”

Vegeta just laughs. His aura flares up and he moves the arm with Baby’s nanomachines on it up, taking aim at the giant face. “You seem to be forgetting what I told you when you tried this with Nappa. You CAN’T control me. ATOMIC BLAST!”

You all teleport in near Capsule Corp. The building looks mostly intact, though its placement feels exceptionally unusual. Taking a moment to look around, you see that the building is located in a massive city inside the station. A sea of white, chrome, silver colors with few details. The area is easily larger than West City, and as you look up you notice that it’s not just a ground level, there’s an entire cylinder of a city around you. Even a few clouds circling overhead.

Mom takes a moment to look over the area, a little impressed. “He got all this done in about a day. Even with Bulma’s help, I have to say, I didn’t think he’d have it in him.”

“I doubt it’s as natural as it looks.” Piccolo comments, moving towards Capsule Corp. “He did steal this, after all.”

Right outside the building, in one of the bushes, you spot a white, metallic sphere poke out. You’re about to bring up your guard, when the sphere leaps up with excitement. “Giru, Giru! Maple, Raditz! Giru! You came!”

“Hey lil’ guy. I could only sense you out up here. Can you tell me what happened?”

“It was a trap! Baby was waiting for us to show up! Pantea confronted Bulma deep inside, and suddenly there were bright lights and sensors were all wrong!”

“How’d you get away?” Raditz questions, raising an eyebrow. Lazuli likewise looks at him with suspicion.

“Giru, Giru, chased down by Machine Mutants! Only managed to get away when some camels attacked them.” he beeps in response.

“Camels?” mom asks. A relieved smile appears on her face. “So they’re still okay…”

“Surprised, I couldn’t sense them last time I was here.” you comment. “Where are they now? And where did Pantea, Videl, and 16 go?”

“They were forced to split up. I haven’t been able to locate any of them, been trying to hide from Baby’s search parties. Giru, Giru…” the little robot beeps apologetically.

Lazuli sighs loudly. “Great. And I guess that means you have no idea on where Krillin or Lapis ended up either.”

>A. We should check Capsule Corp. first, there may be some clues in there
>B. Better start searching for them, Videl and Pantea might be hiding their Ki but they’ll notice us flying around, right?

The station has decent shielding, though light waves can get through. There aren't many actual windows though.

>>3903100
You start to move towards Capsule Corp. “So we should check this place out first. Find some clues. Last time I was here they tried to lure me to the basement, kept saying there was some kind of project they wanted me to see. Might have been some kind of scanning device, or whatever brought Capsule Corp. up here.”

The group moves cautiously, Giru floating closest to 19 and Maple. Piccolo, Raditz, and Lazuli say they’ll stay outside, raising their Ki a bit to make sure Pantea and Videl, and hopefully Krillin and Chuu Lee, know you’re all here. You, Maple, and 19 find the building mostly barren, though not completely. The atrium still has animals inside it, but they don’t seem all that pleased to know you’re there.

“I suspect that there is no need to hide our presence.” 19 comments as she looks to one of the security cameras, it moving to match your pace. “Baby most likely has control over any and all security systems in Capsule Corp.”

Mom forms two of her Spirit Bits and sends them out, breathing some words out under her breath as you try to head for the basement. You pass by Bulma’s lab, catching sight of several large tubes of some kind, with several canisters on the table. Mom tilts her head, then takes a step inside. “…She did it.” Maple speaks in surprise.

“Hm? Who did what?” you ask.

After breathing something out again, Maple picks up one of the canisters. “Bulma’s perfected the Ki Containers we’ve been working on. Maybe through Baby’s help, but… I can sense it. Actually…” She looks through the others. “…Okay, those with Baby’s help. But not this one.”

“Giru, Giru, nanomachines detected!” the little robot blurts out.

19 likewise seems uneasy, but Maple assures them it’s fine. “It’s probably using a system similar to your own, Giru. It might-” Mom stops herself, getting an idea. “…Here, see if you can utilize it.” She hands Giru the canister. He’s cautious, but he takes the canister and analyzes it.

Giru then… opens up its body and eats it. You feel his energy rise. “Giru, Giru! Upgrade fully integrated!” A Capsule Corp symbol appears on his chest, and with a flash of light his body changes color from white to blue, large halves of a shield forming on his arms. “Giru, Giru!” he cheers out.

“...Whaaaat the heck.” you blurt out. “Mom, was that wise?”

“The nanomachines used in it aren’t Baby’s. They are based on the Machine Mutants, but there’s a disconnect with them.” She grins confidently. “Bulma probably made these right under Baby’s nose.”

“How?” you ask.

“If I had to guess… it might have been when you um…” Mom looks at the halo over your head. “When you nearly took him down. She might have had a brief lapse in his control, and used what time she had to make one off of Giru’s nanomachines.” She pats the little robot, then points to the Capsule Corp. logo on him. “And I think the result speaks for itself.”

“While interesting, this would mean the others are unusable.” 19 comments.

”Sure, but now we know it can be done completely.” Maple heads out. “Anyway, basement!”

https://youtu.be/RfOso3O3EDo

You reach a stairwell next to the elevator and head to the lower level, finding a massively expanded lab underneath. Several machines unknown to you flank the area, with a massive one right in the center that still seems like it’s been getting power, a low hum coming from it as some small lights flash. Maple recognizes one of them almost instantly, but has Giru check for any signs of nanomachine interference. A few of them do register positive, including the one mom recognizes.

“Is that not one of the components of the Gravity Chamber?” 19 asks Maple.

“Yeah. Which means Baby’s got one of his own.”

You breathe in and close your eyes, sensing for whichever one might be blocking telepathic communication, as well as trying to locate the nanomachines infecting the various devices. Your eyes open and you look to Maple. “Hey. Mom. Betcha I can exorcise all of ‘em.”

She laughs. “By all means, son. Go ahead.”

Okay, first, one of the larger concentrations of nanomachines. You head to a wide, flat, circular device that almost looks like a bowl of some sort, though with various circuits and tiny spires sticking up out of it. You raise your hands and bit by bit start to grab hold of the nanomachines inside. As you pull them out, you feel a Ki signature from them that you know all too well matches Baby’s. They don’t recognize what you’re doing at first and try to struggle against you, but you’re able to bring them out too quickly for them to pose any real challenge.

A fluid sphere of silver floats above the machine you purged them out of. 19 walks toward you. “Gohan. May I have the honors?” she asks, raising her hand and charging an attack.

“By all means.” You give her a little bow, condensing the nanomachines as much as you can. She blasts them to dust, an appreciative smile on her face. “OKAY! Next one!” You head to a computer terminal. Not as many nanomachines on this one, but they’re more spread out. Gonna take a bit more time. You bring the nanomachines up slowly, though the prior exorcism seems to have alerted them. They let out little pulses of energy, causing the computer to light up. Bits of it sound like they’re short-circuiting, and you quickly pull the nanomachines out all at once. Mom’s Spirit Bits fly in and blast them once you’ve gathered them together.

Maple tries to turn on the computer, sighing as it tries to boot… and fails. “Well, guess we should have expected that.”

Lowering your head, you mumble a “Sorry” to her.

“No, it’s fine. Giru, see if you can try to get some data off this thing.”

As the tiny robot flies to it, you go after the last major source of nanomachines, the large, active device. This one might be a bit more tricky, but you feel like you’ve got a handle on this completely, now. You first feel out where all of the little invasive bits of Baby are hiding, then put a bit more energy into taking hold of them, yanking them out all at once before they have a chance to damage anything. The final silver sphere outside the machine, 19 blasts it too and gives you a nod.

“This one is the thing block off our communication.” you tell everyone. “I can kinda feel it, the nanomachines were even trying to contact Baby before I exorcised them.”

“Then let’s shut it down for good. Giru, any risk to shutting it off?” Maple asks.

“Giru, Giru, full data too damaged to recover, but shutdown should be possible! Lack of nanomachines means no return signal to attack intruders!” he replies to mom.

And so, it’s finally shut down. You hear… well, not exactly hear, but kinda feel something stop in the air. Like there was some kind of background noise there. And as you do, Raditz contacts you all, “MAPLE, DO YOU READ ME?!” he demands through mom’s scouter. “COME ON, ANSWER ALREADY!”

“Raditz, what’s going on?”

“Baby thought it’d be funny to have things start shooting at us from all over the place!” The sounds of battle outside can be heard, the lab rumbling with a low explosion. “And I’m pretty sure Chiaotzu’s out there somewhere, something keeps trying to freeze us in place.”

Just as you’re all about to move, the elevator door opens. Out steps… Dr. Briefs? His glasses reflect the light from the room as he takes a puff from the cigarette in his mouth. “Quite clever. You managed to finally shut it down. And Gohan my boy… you came at last. This would have gone by so much smoother if you listened when last you were here.”

You step forward. Telepathically you tell mom you’re going to stall him, and you plan to exorcise him when you see an opening. You tell her to leave on your signal, and keep moving forward, asking, “Is this all you wanted to show me, Doc? I kinda doubt it.”

“You managed to show something pretty unique there, my boy.” He stays still, taking another puff from his cigarette. As he exhales, though, you notice the smoke greyer than it should be. “And… yes. There is something else… in the basement.” Dr. Briefs leans forward, and the light reflecting against his glasses vanishes… revealing red crosshairs on the whites of his eyes. “Would you like to see?”

“NOW!” you tell Maple, her gathering 19 and Giru up and teleporting to Raditz. And just in time, as some kind of barrier forms around the lab. Locking you inside. Dr. Briefs smiles, taking a few steps forward. You look over the barrier curiously. “…So, this was your big plan? Trap me in here? Do you really think it can hold me for long?”

“The plan was to have you here just long enough for Lord Baby to take control. It honestly wouldn’t take much. Buuuut you shown you’re quite the capable lad. Should have expected it. Guess the lack of oxygen will have to do.” Suddenly the air inside the barrier is vacuumed away. Crap. Timer’s ticking. You instinctively fire a Ki blast at the barrier, and it does nothing. You try to read Dr. Briefs’ mind. ‘Barrier tech seems to be working as intended! Marvelous, truly marvelous. Lord Baby will have a field day with it.’

Your head starts to get dizzy as you feel the moisture in your mouth bubble slightly, almost like it’s boiling. Eyes closing, you know you’ve only got one shot with this. Hands forward, you try to focus on the nanomachine parasite in Dr. Briefs’ head. Almost… almost… GOT IT! You raise your arms up and pull it from him, Dr. Briefs letting out a shout of pain as silvery fluid comes out of his nostrils and mouth. Ick. But also, got ‘em!

“W-what in blazes…?” Bulma’s dad stumbles over, dropping his cigarette. “…Gohan? My boy are you-?”

‘LOWER THE BARRIER, LOWER THE BARRIER!’ you demand of him telepathically. Gotta keep conscious. Gotta keep the nanomachines contained.

He looks around for a control panel frantically, only to bump his hand against his pocket, finding a little remote. He starts pressing buttons in a panic, gravity increasing momentarily, some kind of gas seeping in before getting vacuumed away, until finally the barrier shuts down and air flows back to you. You gasp loudly for air. “HOOOH. Okay. Too close for comfort.”

“Well. You look like you need a cappuccino, my boy!” the Doctor tells you cheerfully, noticing the small silver orb you have contained. “Oh dear, was that what was inside me.”

“Drink later, need to destroy this!” you tell him, looking around. Okay, come on, think Gohan, think, do you try to hit it with the Spirit Ball, or maybe-

The sound of a Capsule opening and a weapon charging turns your attention back to Dr. Briefs. You see him with a large energy weapon slung under his arms. “Move it against a wall!” he tells you. You do so, and he fires a concentrated blast of plasma at it that vaporizes the nanomachines. The energy weapon vents steam as the old man puts it down. “Ah, glad I still keep this baby around! Takes a bit to fully charge, buuuut something small like that can’t endure a full shot. Bulma had to talk me down designs to make a larger one on the moon. Anyway, cappuccino?”

“...Cappuccino sounds good actually.” you tell him. “Does, uh, the gun make them?”

There’s a flash of inspiration in the man’s eyes. “My boy. You’re a GENIUS.”

You laugh, partially because you’re surprised he didn’t think that up already. “Okay, but we need to be careful, this whole place is probably still crawling with Baby’s nanomachines. Also I’ve still got a lot of questions.”

‘Gohan, you okay?’ Maple asks you telepathically, and you can hear some relief in her voice.

‘Yeah, close call, but Dr. Briefs is free. How about things on your end?’

‘Baby’s trying to use Chiaotzu to snipe at us with Ice Magic. Keeps firing off Dodonpas infused with it, then trying to hold us with Telekinesis. There’s something off about this too, like he’s having someone teleport Chaitozu around the area. I’ve got my Spirit Bits searching for ‘em, 19 and Lazuli are also searching for him too. Piccolo and Raditz are keeping the Machine Mutants at bay. What are you doing in there?’

‘Info gathering, Baby’s bound to have left a few things in here. I think he’s getting sloppy.’ you reply to her and help Dr. Briefs up the flight of stairs.

https://youtu.be/6xvHnlabNzY

Once back on the ground floor, you guide him to the kitchen, noticing that you’re being followed, but from a distance by some of the Machine Mutants. You also get a chance to talk with Dr. Briefs, and while it takes some time for him to recall it, he has full memory of his time under Baby’s influence.

And what he recalls horrifies him once he gets a look outside.

“This… this thing…” He gulps. “Baby didn’t quite come here on his own. A ship of some kind ended up arriving shortly after he made his attack on West City’s baseball stadium. He put me, Bulma, and several other of Earth’s scientists to work trying to devise ways to improve the thing. Make it just one more part of him. Apparently he intended to make the whole moon a part of it! Can you imagine, Gohan? Who STEALS a moon?!” He begins to rant about the logistics and purpose for such a thing.

“Ambitious space pirates?” you suggest as he hands you the cappuccino. Ahhh, that hits the spot. Well hey, guess this body can actually eat and drink.

“...Good point. But it’s still quite a rude thing to do.” He huffs, lighting another cigarette. “Say, have you seen my wife around anywhere?”

As if on cue, Pantea’s grandmother walks in. “Oh, there you are honey. Hail Lord Baby! I made you some fresh cookies!” She presents a platter of what almost look like chocolate chip cookies… if only the chips didn’t look like they had circuit lines across them. “And Gohan! So good to see you! Pantea was by just a while ago, were you here to see her?”

You blink, then look to Dr. Briefs. “…Uh. Huh?”

He taps his head. “Baby’s control isn’t perfect. Those he deems less important he’s simply brainwashed, placed signals in their minds to make them think the way he wants to. But their original personalities can still shine through. My daughter and myself were quite important to him. Panchy? Not so much.” He lets out a puff of smoke. “His loss. She’s still quite the looker, isn’t she, my boy?”

“Sir, focus.” You casually try to exorcise the parasite from her and dodge the question because you yourself have numerous questions on THAT that are probably best asked when the world’s not at stake. “What else has he gotten from this?”

“Oh lots of things! Scouter data, the Gravity Chamber, some of our ship designs, a few weapons systems I was testing out. Did have a lot of his own though, teleportation devices, barriers, that communication blocker he set up. He even-” Dr. Briefs’ eyes widen as he gulps. “Oh no.”

Removing the parasite from Panchy, the lady’s eyes opening for once and looking down at the cookies, frowning and sighing as she shoves them in the trash and… heads off to make another batch,
“Oh no is not something I want to hear right now.”

She was number 11 on that top 10 list I did the other day, I just figured Gohan would have more interactions with the other women. Eh, doesn't seem like he would interact with Launch all that much, so probably switch them around. Would interact with the other moms due to babysitting, and getting complimented for being a responsible young man by pretty moms is the best~

Ah. Fug. Baby with Babadi's ship. Yay.

Good times were had Kato! Thanks for running!

>>3903808
Well.

Baby is probably gonna use our magic users to integrate Babidi's ship and its magi-tech.
>>
>>3904354
Good thing we only have elemental-flavoring people instead of Babidi-tier sorcerers, huh?
>>
>>3904372
Well that's just the thing.

Does Baby have a hive-mind, can he access the collective knowledge of all the infected and combine that knowledge to access what we couldn't normally alone?

Yes, our 'elemental-flavored' people might not be Babidi-tier Sorcerers, but Gohan showed skills with the ship. If we gathered the knowledge of all those who know even a little bit about magic, he could surpass what we know individually.
>>
>>3903808
Hold on, maybe this is a case of silver linings.

So, Babidi's spaceship can engulf the space it's warping, right? Can it engulf, saaay, Towa's Lab?
>>
>>3904629
Yeah, he can make his Revenge Death Balls into Sparking Revenge Death Balls of the Darkness Flame.

Good questions. You'll find out soon enough.

>>3904754
You're assuming she hasn't prepared for something like that.

>>3903808
‘Mom, did you get that?’ you telepathically ask Maple. ‘Baby’s got all the data recovered on Babidi’s ship!’

‘That’s… probably how he moved Capsule Corp. like that. Damn it.’ There are sounds of battle intensifying outside. ‘How’d he gain the magic needed to even operate a system like that?’

Dr. Briefs starts looking through his pockets for something, pulling out a Capsule. It pops open into a workbench. “I might have some of the schematics here still, could use it to reverse what he did and get us all back home.”

“Sir, might you have an idea on where Bulma is? She’ll be vital in stopping Baby, and I can save her like I did you and your wife.”

“Baby probably has a main lab somewhere deeper in the ship. That or some kind of control room. I’ll try to work on this. Gohan, find my little girl and make sure my granddaughter is safe, you hear me?”

>A. Absolutely, sir! You can count on me!
>B. Better stay with you for a bit, just so you’re safe while trying to find those schematics
>C. Check through Capsule Corp. first, clear it of any more of Baby’s parasites
>D. Something else?
>>
>>3905058
Even if she has prepared for it, dropping all our problems onto her seems like a win-win. The best move would be to have the ship warp to her lab, then have a strong person go outside the warp threshold to where they are in Makai, then have that person raise their energy yo where they can be a beacon for IT. Then, either Maple or Peppa can IT the Pacifier over or near Towa's Lab.

“I’ll head out soon, but first I’ve gotta make sure you don’t get infected again. I’m gonna clear out Capsule Corp.” You head out, sensing through the building. Turns out there are a LOT of little hidden parasites all over the place, but most are fairly easy to get out. The ones that present a bit more of a challenge end up in the atrium, a large number of the animals have basic parasites like Panchy did, but all of them with significantly upped aggressiveness.

You end up having to fend them off, then exorcise Baby from them one by one, gathering as many as you can into one sphere. Even Baragon and another couple Kaiju end up attacking you, though using Yamcha’s Spirit Ball you’re able to knock them aside and then remove the infection present in each. Last but not least you’re confronted by… a pirate robot? Oh, it’s that one from Bulma’s lab! Wow, Baby rebuilt it? Or… did his nanomachines rebuild it?

“YAHAR! WALK THE PLANK, BOY!” It calls out to you, a large gun arm pointed at you and charging an energy weapon much like the cannon Dr. Briefs used. You smirk, pretending you’re going to tank the blow, only for you to bring up the sphere of nanomachines you’ve collected, the blast incinerating them. “…OH. AH. SHI-”

You use a Kiai to knock it down, damaging but not destroying it, then remove the parasite from its body. Finishing the nanomachine off with a Fire-boosted Geist Magnum, you’ve finally got Capsule Corp. clear. ‘Mom, how are things on your end?’

‘Lazuli and 19 have found Chiaotzu! But we can sense others coming this way… feels like Yamcha and… Launch. Wait, there’s Nappa too. Looks like-’ There’s a loud blast heard outside. As you sense it out, you feel the incoming group, and… seems like Nappa was hit! Not out yet, but that got his attention. And… sensing where it came from, a smile appears on your face.

“You sure took your sweet time.” you speak aloud, but also communicate the thought to her.

‘Been trying to make our way back. Weren’t even a little worried, Gohan?’ Pantea asks you teasingly.

>A. Head outside and back them up!
>B. Better go after Nappa, he was damaged and if Baby loses control of him, he’ll be down a powerful fighter

‘I’m heading after Nappa. If Baby loses him, he loses an important fighter among his ranks, and seems like you damaged him.’

‘16 and I will help! Videl’s gonna try and stall Launch and my dad with Maple.’ Pantea tells you.

Dashing out the door, you take to the air and head above some of the taller buildings. Seems Nappa landed a short ways away from. Pantea approaches you, a wide smile on her face. You see 16 next to her, in the white and blue Capsule Corp armor you’d seen before. “Well, glad Baby didn’t get to you just yet.” you tell her… quickly sensing her body just to be safe. Yeah, she’s in the clear. Clothes are a bit roughed up, doesn’t look like she’s had a chance to repair just ye- okay you’re staring. You’re staring and you’re gonna make this awkward. Focus! Though you notice something odd. You can… kinda feel a bit of Ki coming from 16. Not a lot, but there is something there now.

“Yet?” she questions, her smile becoming a smug smirk, arms crossing over her chest. “Like I’d be tricked by him.”

“Nearly were by Bulma.” 16 comments. “And you took pause when Baby mimicked Gohan’s voice.”

“A-anyway! Ready?” she quickly ignores those comments.

“Yeah. What’d you hit him with, anyway?”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORRiBfdBYIM

“Hehehe, been a while since I tried out the ol’ Zero Buster. Think I’ve managed a range record with it.” she tells you proudly, the three of you flying off. The buildings where Nappa landed shake as you sense his Ki skyrocket. He starts to fly up from where he crashed. Unusually, you notice that his eyebrows and goatee have turned a silvery-white color, yet he feels like he’s gone Super Saiyan, even has a golden aura around him. And his eyes have the same crosshairs you saw Dr. Briefs have.

He cracks his knuckles. “Well. That was a pretty good cheap shot. Won’t happen again.” Nappa immediately tries to bulldoze the two of you, you and Pantea getting out of the way as 16 catches him, headbutting Nappa hard enough to force him back. You and Pantea power up as well, you going Super Saiyan and forming a Spirit Ball as Pantea readies some Spirit Bits, barraging Nappa with a series of blows and blasts to keep him in one place, 16’s arm changing shape into... some kind of arm cannon.

You give Pantea a brief, slightly judging glance. She looks back, grinning innocently. “N-now he doesn’t have to remove it to use his Busters!”

That gets a laugh. “You dork.”

“HELL BUSTER!” 16 roars, letting out a fierce blast at Nappa that pushes him back a bit. Got ‘em pinned!

>A. Pantea, Shinespark! Together!
>B. Blast ‘em with a Double Geist Magnum, enhanced with Lightning!

“Pantea! Shinespark! Together!” you call to her. She nods, and the two of you move back, heading to a pair of buildings. 16 uses a Rocket Punch to strike Nappa in the jaw, but the Saiyan grabs his fist before it flies back and decides to return it to him, directly, smashing the android’s face with his own fist. You and Pantea both get into sprinters’ positions, then blast down the sides of the buildings to build up speed. Right as you get to the bottom, letting out a “SHIIIIIINE-!” you feel the ground underneath you rumble.

You look up and spot Nappa’s taken notice of you, and he lifts up a pair of fingers with a smug grin across his face. An eruption of Ki fills the whole block you were standing in, preventing you from dashing out. You’re thrown into the air by the explosion, yelling out in pain. No! Damn it! Pantea, is she-?

“SPAAAAAAAAAAARK!” Pantea screams out, rocketing past the explosion, the eruption of energy following her, but not getting close enough to make contact. She flies at Nappa, the large Saiyan swiping at her and unleashing a massive wave of power down at her… Pantea dodging it with ease, even swerving around Nappa as he tries to down at her. She turns back, still yelling out, crashing into his back and hitting him with all her built up speed.

You land before he does, Nappa leaving a huge crater from his impact that digs through some of the station’s hull. You hear Pantea ask if you’re all right. You laugh weakly as you pull yourself up. “You keep showing me up like this and I’m gonna start feeling just a little-”

“RAAAAAGH!” Nappa yells out, his massive form bursting from the crater and bolting at you as his aura flares more intensely, sparks flying intensely as his power rises more. He grabs you by the neck and slams you against the ground. “There. Now stay still. Lord Baby doesn’t want a repeat of last time.”

You deliver a swift kick to his groin, causing his grip on your neck to loosen. “Oh there won’t be a repeat, I’ve made sure of that.” You power up further into Super Saiyan 2, then slam your fist into Nappa’s chest as hard as you can, knocking the wind out of him. His body in pain, you’re able to get him off, but as you move away you see him still struggling for air as he fires a Ki blast at you, you barely avoiding it. His movement seems… unnatural, like he’s being pulled along by a string to do that. Baby’s definitely got more of a hold on him.

In the distance you feel another massive surge of power… coming from Launch? “This worked pretty well on Tien… let’s see if either of you can handle it! And no distractions like last time! SUPER… KAIO-KEEEEN!”

Oh that’s not good. You’ve got Nappa winded but he’s still a danger to you, Pantea, and 16. And Launch using THAT technique is definitely not a good sign.

I keep saying I'll just start voting "No" to everything he puts forward, but his ideas are legitimately good, so imy feelings on him are a bit complicated.

Glad you're having fun!

Gohan hasn't used too much energy yet, so he should be good for the full day if he keeps up this pace.

And look, I'm sorry but not everyone is going to want to do every write-in you make.

I'll try to do that.

“Pantea, Clothes Beam some restraints on Nappa! I’m gonna try to exorcise him!” you call to her.

“Okay, here goes! CLOTHES BEAM!” She fires off long sheets of material that look a bit like Saiyan armor over him, pinning his arms to his sides. You then focus on trying to locate the parasites inside him, realizing that there a LOT more than in anyone before, even Godzilla!

But before you can remove them, Nappa opens his mouth and lets out a furious blast of energy that knocks Pantea away, carving a hole through the area he cleared. You call out to Pantea, but even taking the blast head-on, she tells you to finish the job. Refocusing your efforts, you exorcise the Baby parasite inside Nappa, silver liquid seeping from his pores, eyes, and mouth. He collapses on the ground in pain, body shaking, as you bring the nanomachines into a sphere the size of your whole torso. Jeeze. As you do, though, you see a sort of… face form inside them, letting out a silent scream of pain.

Need to destroy them, before they-! URGH! Before you can react you’re kicked in the head, hard, knocking you into one of the nearby buildings. You look back at where you held the nanomachines, finding Chuu Lee standing there… with Lapis by her side, the two of them placing their hands in the sphere of nanomachines you yanked out of Nappa. They change, the both of them sporting white hair, Chuu Lee’s outfit altered to a black and white one, red lines across her face and eyes. Lapis likewise has a change of wardrobe, large golden armor and a blue jumpsuit mixed in with his more normal clothing, even his hair growing a little longer.

“Well well well. Trying to save your fellow Saiyan first, are you?” Lapis asks, his voice distorted, Baby’s mixed in with it like an echo. “Why focus on that side and not your… better nature.”

Pantea manages to get up, finally, as you bring yourself up, the pair of you looking down the infected individuals. Over in the distance, you see Launch outspeeding and overpowering Maple and Videl, Maple only barely able to keep up in order to defend herself. Damn, this is going from bad to worse.

>A. Pantea, new plan. How well do you think you can hold the two of them in place?
>B. Telepathically suggest Pantea and Videl fuse, that might be enough to match the power increased they’ve all gotten
>C. Try to stun them with a Lightning-boosted Machinegun Punch!
>D. Go after Chuu Lee first! Take down the weaker link!
>E. Try to exorcise the nanomachines from Lapis! There seems to be more of them in him!
>F. Something else?

I know, but just this one guy just keeps going outta his way to tear me down, he had me blocked and then unblocked me to criticize my plan and then reblocked me when I disagreed with his reasoning. I will never really be rid of him.

>F. Frankly, I'm more worried about what Chiaotzu can get up to with a supercomputer in his head, Nappa was just the biggest and easiest target.

You raise up your fists, Lightning sparking around them. ‘Pantea, Videl, do what you can to try and fuse, I’ll hold them off.’

Pantea glances at you. ‘Gohan are you-?’

‘They’ve all gotten way stronger than they should be, we need to be able to match that. I’ll hold them as best I can, and when they’re out, I’ll have the chance to exorcise the parasites.’ Taking your stance, you motion for Lapis and Chuu Lee to come at you. “Come on. I can take the both of you.”

https://youtu.be/TMH3Ujz6z3U

They teleport right in front of you with Instant Transmission. “Can you now?” they ask together. You try to leap away and use a quick jab to get them back, but the pair swerve around your fist and both deliver knee strikes to your gut. Pantea sees her opening, and manages to get away, but their attention is definitely on you now.

Dodging upward, you fly across the building you were knocked into, trying to reach the top, only for Lapis to appear above you. “Come on Gohan, you’ve gotta have a better plan than this.”

“Yeah. I do.” You feint a punch, then try to poke ‘em in the eyes, but he moves his head out of the way and grabs you by your tail, then hits you with a dark blast of energy. You feel your body get heavier, and you only barely manage to bring your arms up and block a kick from him, getting a slight stun across his body that manages to get him to let go of your tail…

But just then you’re caught up in a massive spiral of wind, a small tornado catching you and spinning you around, the weight you’re feeling from Lapis’ blast making it even harder for you to get out of it. You notice glints of silver in the tornado, and immediately fling your arms out, hard as it is, and release the charge of Lightning still around your arms, delivering a small EMP that keeps the silver particles from coming into contact with you.

As you do, though, both Lapis and Chuu Lee appear on both sides of you, pummeling you together. You’re only barely able to take some of their attacks as they relentlessly beat you down, even knocking you around like a pinball a few times. Chuu Lee then grabs you by your tail again and swings you through a building, Lapis delivering a hammer blow on the other side to smash you into the ground. You struggle to get back up as you feel Lapis’ boot stomp on your head. Chuu Lee leans down, speaking with a mixture of her and Baby’s voices, “What’s wrong? That take all your bluster out? We BOTH know you’re capable of so much more.”

“Heh…” you chuckle at her.

“Something funny?”

“Yeah. Few things. Just amused that you think this is anywhere close to what Teach can do. You gave her a little power boost. But you’ve got nothing on her skills.” you reply. “At the Tournament I needed to go a whole extra level to even come close.”

Lapis lifts his boot up. “Is that so?”

“And you’re nowhere near Lapis’ real abilities. You learned some of them, but do you really believe you’re capable of what he is?”

“And just what am I missing?”

“You’d have seen that coming a mile away.” you respond, pointing in the direction of Pantea and Videl.

“HAAAAAA!”

“I thought Launch had that!” Chuu Lee exclaims.

“Lastly!” you add, getting up again and letting your arms surge with Lightning. “You let me do THIS!” You first strike Lapis in the jaw, the Lightning surging through his body and stunning him, then hit Chuu Lee in the gut. Before either has a chance to recover, you unleash a flurry of blows on them, knocking them across the crater Nappa made.

“HYEAH!” Pandel calls out, black and purple hair flowing as she dashes to meet you, a condensed white aura around her as her Ki is focused into her fists. She delivers a pair of chops to the necks of the two, knocking them away. Maple, 16, and Lazuli all end up thrown near where Nappa lay unconscious. 16 moves to help them up, you and Pandel heading to back them up.

“Don’t tell me you two are having trouble with this.” Launch asks as she floats down, eyes on your group as her aura flares red and gold. You notice her muscles twitch slightly as she does, her strength fluctuating a little.

“G-Gohan…” Maple stands first among the group. “W-we need to get Baby out of her, quickly. If we don’t, she’s going to burn through all her life energy!”

Pandel looks at you. “I can take her. You ready?”

“Mom, can you restrain her somehow? That’ll make this easier. Thunder Shock Surprise ‘er?”

Maple focuses herself. “I’ll give it another try.”

You give Pandel a thumb’s up. “I’m ready. You knock her down, I‘ll free her!”

Launch cracks her knuckles. “You think far, far too highly of yourself.”

Lazuli and 16 up, they see Lapis and Chuu Lee stand, Yamcha arriving, damaged but not down. “We shall hold them off.” 16 states, eyes scanning over them.

“Oh? Come on big guy, even with the fancy upgrades, you really think you’re a match for any of us?” Lapis questions. A blast of energy from 16’s arm signals that he is indeed, forcing Lapis to dodge. Lazuli chases after him, getting up close. “Aww, sis, missed you a lot! You here to join us?”

A swift kick barely missing his head gives him the answer, allowing 16 to tackle him and bring him towards Yamcha. Chuu Lee tries to fire a Ki blast at them, but Lazuli surprises the Baby-possessed former redhead by forming a barrier of Ki in front of her shaped like a turtle shell. Meanwhile, you, Maple, and Pandel all face off with Launch. “Time for the big show! THUNDER SHOCK SURPRISE!”

“NOT HAPPENING!” Launch calls out, moving at incredible speeds at Maple, just narrowly avoiding your mother’s attack. Her fist nearly makes contact with Maple’s head, only to be stopped by Pandel catching it and throwing her into the air. Maple redirects the blast of electricity coming from her upward, but by the time she’s about to make contact with Launch, an Explosive Wave erupts from her body and deflects it, sending it right back at all of you!

“RAIO-KEN!” Your aura sparks up, and with your increased speed you’re able to move out of the way as it hits Maple, but Launch notices you and chases after.

“Running away, Gohan?! I’m not letting you ruin this again! GATLING BURST!” She starts firing an excessive amount of Ki attacks at you, with you doing everything you can to try and deflect them away. As you do, you notice her muscles twitch and flinch, her body almost forced to continue. Okay, you’ve got a chance here, just need to locate the parasites and- “GOTCHA! SOLAR FLARE!”

“AAAAGGGH!” you scream as you’re blinded, eyes shutting hard against the bright light, only to be forced open as Launch knees you in the chest, then grabs the back of your head and forces your face into her other knee.

“Get AWAY FROM HIM!” Pandel’s elbow hits Launch before she can repeat that attack, knocking her aside. The two fly at each other at lightning speeds, fists clashing, blows exchanged as they battle it out. Your vision slowly comes back, and you spot Maple finally free from her own attack. She gets ready to try again, only to stop and dodge out of the way of a kick from Chuu Lee.

“You BITCH, that hurt!” Launch grabs Pandel by the hair and swings her into the ground hard enough to cause her to bounce, though she recovers quickly by focusing her aura into her fist and smashing it into Launch’s face. Pandel then moves back, aura still focused around her fist. Flames start to jet out from it, with her looking to you and giving you a smile.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tLsUriPe4g

‘I’ll knock her to you, you get Baby out of her!’

‘Got it.’ You give her a thumb’s up, and focus again on the parasite inside her. Launch blasts out like a berserker, Pandel’s eyes closing. Only one shot at this.

“FALCON…” Pandel swerves slightly as Launch nearly strikes her. “PUUUUUUUNCH!”

The blow connecting, Launch is sent flying towards you. Just in time, you find the nanomachines inside her and pull them from her body. Her aura fades almost immediately, and her blonde hair vanishes into a blue color. You catch her limp form, Launch passing out in your arms as you hold up the parasite that was in her. Pandel destroys them with a quick Ki blast.

Well, she’s down. Looking away you see mom and Chuu Lee continue to fight, the both of them dashing around one another, narrowly avoiding each other’s blows through use of Afterimages and Instant Transmission. Meanwhile Yamcha’s knocked into the ground by 16, but Lapis grab Lazuli by the throat. “Come on, sis, why don’t you join us? It’ll be a lot of fun. I promise we’ll keep little Maron safe.”

Lazuli’s eyes light up with anger. “Don’t you DARE call me ‘sis’ with his voice.” She grabs his hair and headbutts him hard, hard enough that it causes the both of them to bleed a little. “He knows damn well her name is MARRON!”

You… don’t really get the difference but make note to not confuse that. Pandel glances at Yamcha, prone on the ground, trying to get up. “Him next?” she asks you.

>A. Him next!
>B. Lapis first, he’s the bigger threat! Keep Baby from having teleporters!
>C. Chuu Lee! We free her and Maple up, we’re in the home stretch!

“Him first, him first!” you call to her, dashing at Yamcha. Pandel crosses her arms and flies over nonchalantly, reaching him before you do and floating upside-down.

“Yeesh, they really did do a number on you, da- …is it dad? You’re Pantea’s dad, but I’m also Videl.” Pandel rubs her chin. “Huh. Wonder if that’s-”

Yamcha pushes himself up and attempts a spinning kick, but you grab his leg before it connects and force him back down, flipping away as the fused girl Clothes Beams restraints on him, weighted clothing that digs into the ground, bending and denting the metallic surface. With him pinned, you quickly exorcise the parasites from him and bring them out for Pandel to dispose of. To your surprise, she’s able to manipulate the weights and move them off him. Yamcha lets out a loud, pained groan.

“Uuurrrgghhh… thanks for the… ngh… rescue…”

“Youuuu are pretty banged up there. Wanna take a breather?” you ask.

“Y-yeah, now that… agh… now that I can breathe.”

Pandel gives him a double thumb’s up and then grabs the end of her restraints, swinging them like a bolas. 16’s body crashes through a building and brings it down, the rubble filling the area. You manage to get Yamcha to safety, moving him and Launch away as Lapis floats overhead, arms crossed. “You know, Gohan, that trick of yours is really starting to tick me off.” Lapis comments, his voice sounding more like Baby’s. “How about you stay put for a bit instead. I’ve got a few beatings I need to dish out.”

“No can do, Baby. I’ve still a whole lot more of you to get rid of.” you tell him.

“It’s funny you think you’re even really making a dent in this. Sure, you got a few, but it’s a temporary, if annoying victory.” Four spheres of energy form around him, pitch black with white bolts of electricity jetting out of them. Lapis brings his arms together, fists over his chest. Lazuli moves in front of him as the spheres glow with dangerously high levels of energy, bringing up that turtle shell barrier you saw her use before. Lapis just laughs. “Noble sentiment. But won’t work on this one.”

You feel a tingle in the air as it starts to charge up with electricity, the gravity you’re feeling suddenly growing stronger. Ah crap now what? Maple looks over to you and screams out, “GOHAN, GET OUT OF THERE, NOW!”

“HADES WYRM!” Lapis yells out, the spheres vanishing from him and appearing near you. With not a moment to lose, you fly off with Launch and Yamcha, getting them out of the way as the four spheres explode into a massive black sphere. You reach the roof of a two-story structure as you watch the sphere fade, though it leaves behind an unnerving black tint to the area it exploded out from, rubble that falls into it from nearby accelerating several times faster than it should.

“Baby’s just pulling out all sorts of tricks.” Pandel comments to you, floating nearby, still holding the weights she made like a bolas. “Though not liking what he said about us not making a dent.”

You know… you’re not sure you like that either. Eyes glancing around, you notice something at the end of this habitation area. It… almost looks like a face? …Like Baby’s face. Aw crap.

Well, Gohan was less of an asshole that time around.

I get that whatever write ins you use is up to you, and that I should be glad you use any of them, but I really wanted more opportunities to do the pepper thing to see if that would mess with her brainwashing. I really thought I did have another chance with how atrocious our rolls were, Sword was on board in the discord, but the one roll that succeeded was the money-maker. I'm disappointed that I didn't get a chance to do it, and that you don't take note of what I wanted like you did with Sword and the glitter goats and put it in the options.

You even told me to take the pouches idea and "Save it for later." What does that mean? Is it a bad idea for the current situation? Is it a good idea that didn't win? Why do I have to suggest it again if you can put it in the options of a later vote and I don't even know if you like it or not?

You never tell me if my ideas are good or not!

“Well that’s just ominous now ain’t it.” Pandel grumbles out. “Is it… is it smirking at us?”

“Might be, looks like it’s easily 20… maybe 30 kilometers away.” you comment, starting to take in just how large this habitation area really is. “Which means that is an ABSURD amount of his nanomachines all bunched up there.”

“Out of the frying pan, into the fire.” She runs her fingers through her black and purple hair. “So, who next? Lapis? Chuu Lee?”

“Lapis first! The longer he’s under Baby’s control, the more he’s got a chance to use moves like THAT!” you motion your arm in the direction of the aftermath of his attack.

https://youtu.be/MV7Ikb5X0x4

“Gotcha!” Her aura condenses around her chest, eyes focusing on Lapis. Lazuli tries to hold off another one of his attacks, but the turtle shell barrier she’s brought up isn’t going to last. Pandel rockets towards him, though Lapis manages to notice her just in time and teleports out of the way, using Instant Transmission to head to Chuu Lee, Maple managing to stun her with an electrified barrier of her own. But before she can try and tackle Lapis, he vanishes again, appearing next to Lazuli and kneeing her in the back and smashing his fists into the back of her head, her body rocketing to the ground. Pandel rockets back around, flinging the weights she was swinging around at Lapis.

He thrusts his left hand forward and lets out a black Ki blast at it, the weights just barely missing him as they fall towards the ground. Through his right arm, a swirl of dark energy as he flies away from Pandel. Right as she’s about to catch him, he starts to laugh. “Right where I want you! FALL!”

But right as he launches his attack, a swirling black dragon, you appear in front of Pandel and yell out, “LUMINAIRE!” The sphere of white engulfs the dragon of darkness, the resulting explosion blinding both you and Pandel, allowing Lapis another chance to get back before you can get a proper read on the nanomachines inside him. You and Pandel feel him vanish once the light fades.

In the distance you notice 19, Raditz, and Piccolo headed your way, 19 carrying an unconscious Chiaotzu by some restraints. “Gohan!” she calls to you. “Please, remove the nanomachines from him before Baby forces his body to move again.”

>A. All right, one exorcism, coming up!

“Pandel, can you get a read on where Lapis went? Did he run off, or does he have some trick up his sleeve?” you ask her.

“I’ll find ‘em.” she gives you an affirming nod.

Piccolo looks at her. “We’ll find him. Raditz, stick with Gohan, Baby’s going to target him still. We lose him, we’re in far, far more danger than before”

Your uncle nods, giving you a smile. 19 motions her head towards Chiaotzu, a look of genuine worry on her face. No time to lose then! “Okay! One exorcism, coming right up!” you declare. You bring your hands forward, trying to locate the nanomachines in his body. Just gotta find ‘em and… why’s his body swinging like that. “19, hold him still.”

“I am-” She looks down. In one swift motion Chiaotzu’s body lunges at you, eyes half-open like he’s in a trance, beams firing out of them and encasing you in ice. Frost covers you, freezing you with a surprised and… sadly doofy expression on your face as you start to fall. Raditz bolts to your rescue, catching you and bringing you back up.

“Gohan! Can you hear me? Come on, you can get out of this! Hurry!” he pleads, using a bit of Ki to try and melt the ice around you. Your hands ignite with flame as you start to melt it as well, finally shattering the ice and looking up at the pair.

“Okay. That was embarrassing.” you grumble, but looks like 19’s got him a bit more secure now. Got your chance! You refocus on the nanomachines inside him and bring them out, resulting in a sphere just a bit smaller than the one you yanked from Nappa. Chiaotzu goes limp, and Raditz quickly blasts the nanomachines to dust.

“I swear, he’s doing this specifically to piss us off.” your uncle growls at the cinders that remain of the nanomachines.

“Two left… right?” you ask, looking down at Maple and Chuu Lee. Lazuli can barely stand, seems she’s taken too much of a beating to really help too much, instead opting to recover Nappa, 16 covering her as he keeps his sights locked on Chuu Lee. 19 brings Chiaotzu down near the unconscious Launch and the exhausted Yamcha.

“Well? Isn’t this something you’ve been waiting for, Maple?” Chuu Lee asks, Baby’s voice more prominent than before. “Seeing your student at her best?”

“Best? This isn’t even CLOSE to Chuu Lee’s best! I’d know, I trained her. Remember what I told you, Baby? When you tried to take control of my own mind?” Maple places her hands together, eyes closing. “You’re never going to use any of us at our best. You’re a mockery of what the Tuffles stood for. Hell… even Dr. Raichi remained closer to our values than you have.”

Winds swirl around Chuu Lee. “Tell me, how exactly am I not using them at their best? From what I’ve been able to read, it’s they who’ve been holding themselves back.”

“Simple. You’re all about excess. Power. Domination. You have no balance. No real control. You can’t use anyone at their best because you want everything all at once.” Her eyes open.

Baby’s face starts to form across countless buildings all over the habitat, echoing laughter coming from them all. Your ears start to hurt from the sound of it, both how loud it is and how annoying he sounds. “No control? I’m controlling these two pretty well, aren’t I?” the legion of faces speak alongside Chuu Lee. “Or should I say… three.”

“DESTRUCTO DISK BARRAGE!”

Krillin appears above Maple, readying a flurry of golden disks that he launches towards 16. Oh no!

>A. Raio-ken! Get him out of the way!
>B. Blast the Destructo Disks, quick!

“Everyone, we need to stop those attacks!” you call out, firing off blasts at the Destructo Disks.

“No need to tell me twice!” Raditz responds, flying with you, 19 joining him, 16 doing what he can to stop the attacks before they hit. As you fly forward, trying to get to mom, one just narrowly misses your head, cutting your cheek. That gives Krillin a temporary pause, but it’s one long enough that you’re able to knock him away from Maple.

“Gohan. You really are just delaying the inevitable.” Baby tells you, his voice mixed with Chuu Lee’s, the faces on the buildings all around you speaking with her. “You, Maple, Acer, Peppa, and Izumi will all take your rightful places as Tuffles under MY rulership. We will make our people the envy of all others. An Empire of the Tuffles!”

“Nobody in their right mind would willingly serve under you. Or did you forget what I’ve been doing?” you ask with a cheeky grin. You and Maple nod at one another, your mother bringing her hands back as sparks surge around them. With wind still spiraling around her, Chuu Lee leaps at you both, attempting to catch you inside the tornado forming around her. Just barely do you avoid getting cut by the silver shards inside it.

“If you really could use her to her fullest, you’d have seen this coming already! After all… she helped invent it!” Maple then brings her hands together again in a clap, the sound of thunder coming from her as a pulse of blue energy rockets outward. The silver particles inside the tornado all spark wildly, even Chuu Lee flinching from the attack. Maple pulls her hands back again and then teleports right in front of Chuu Lee. Cutting it close, she just narrowly misses an attack from her former student and slaps her hands against the sides of Chuu Lee’s head. She lets out a pained yell, the tornado vanishing.

“W-what… did you…?!” Baby asks through her, the woman’s body stunned completely.

“Those attacks from earlier weren’t just for show. You’ve built up too much of a charge differential, you can’t move anything, go anywhere. You’re going to stay right there. GOHAN, NOW!” mom calls to you.

You grab hold of the nanomachines in her and bring them out all at once, a huge, sparking blob of them forming as you bring them together. Chuu Lee’s hair returns to normal, even her clothes change color back to what she was wearing before Lapis took her. She collapses on the ground, panting, groaning in pain. You and Maple are about to destroy the sphere, when you see Krillin kicked towards you, a VERY exhausted Lazuli landing near your mother as 19 and 16 pin Krillin down.

“Quick!” they both ask of you. You yank the nanomachines from him as well and add them to the orb of silver, mom eradicating them with a Kamehameha.

“O-one… one left.” Lazuli pants, Maple having to catch her.

“That really IS getting annoying, Gohan.” Baby grumbles across the various buildings he plastered his face on. “But the whole lot of you should be plenty exhausted by now.”

“Wait… THAT was your plan the whole time?!” Raditz exclaims. “You really are a damn moron, you know that?! We can still kick your ass six ways from-!”

“It’s not physical combat that I need to engage in, hahahahaha!” Baby exclaims. “Just stall long enough to build up my reserves! This whole place will be FLOODED with nanomachines!” Looking above, you start to see an entire sea of silver seep out from the various buildings, the sound of distant rushing fluid barreling towards you.

“Damn it. Back to Capsule Corp, everyone!” Raditz calls out, taking to the air as he starts blasting wildly.

“YEAHAHAHAHAHA-!” A massive blue fist crashes through one of the buildings. “-ha?” Another one, through a different building. Something the size of Godzilla or Gamera seems to be tearing through the buildings… and what’s more, you see the silver sea start to recede above you, followed by large explosions. The rushing fluid ceases, ground rumbling near you.

https://youtu.be/Cfwo4OYdvdY

“It took a while to be able to really study that skill of yours, Gohan.” a voice calls out. Your group look back and see a tall, blue alien walk towards everyone. A Yardratian. Soba! “My apologies for taking so long. I had to ensure that this would work.”

“Wait wha?” you exhale. Noticing another fist smash through yet one more building with Baby’s face on it, you notice that the figure responsible is the very same Yardratian walking towards you.

“You said you were going to hold off the Machine Mutants.” Raditz comments.

“I still am. My people have quite a number of useful techniques, even if few are warriors like myself. But the ones your group have learned work to enhance them to new heights.”

“Y-You! What are you doing?!” Baby exclaims. Another building falls.

“Parasite!” Soba addresses. “This is for making a mockery of my people’s skills! You now have to deal with ONE HUNDRED of me!” You notice that he’s got a sparking purple aura around him. “Take Chuu Lee and all the other injured warriors back to that base. I can only hold him off for so long. Do what you can to finish this, once and for all!”

“ATOMIC BLAST!” Vegeta yells out, letting out a yellow, almost dart-shaped blast from his hand. It hits the oversized face of Baby, blasting it apart. The silver particles cease for a moment, long enough to get everyone to regroup.

“Vegeta. Vegeta, Vegeta, Vegeta. You’re still so, so much like your father.” Baby’s voice critically tells him, the face regrowing, the gravity easily at 400-500x that of Earth’s. If it weren’t for the form you have now, you might not even be able to stand. Tapion and Minotia’s red auras are obscured by the intense red light, the pair of them struggling to move. Baby starts to chuckle again. “Tell me, how long do you think your body will hold out? A few seconds? A few minutes? I know you’d want another chance at beating everyone here.”

Vegeta just fires again, breaking the face once more. “Go ahead, take control. Show me you’re not all bluster.” And again. And again, Baby’s face reforming each time. “Well?”

You spot Neuros materialize what looks to be a bag of popcorn, a smile on his face, before the bag flattens into a disk, the smile turning upside down. “Right. Gravity.”

“You still gonna eat that?” Adipos asks, pointing at the flattened bag. Neuros hands it to the larger bugman, who consumes it in one gulp, paper and all.

“This… doesn’t feel right.” Peppa comments to you. “Baby’s trying something. Izzy, you handling things fine?”

>A. Sure, so long as I can hold this form. You got a plan?

“Ngh. I’m… holding. Gonna see if… if Tapion and I can get those nanomachines out of Vegeta.” you reply, taking a step forward. The very air you breathe feels like it’s trying to force you down. But you’ve gotta keep going. Telepathically, you tell Tapion your plan.

Vegeta flies up into the air, readying a Galick Gun. “You will NEVER control my mind, Baby!”

“Fine, then your body will suffice!” the face barks out.

As if yanked around like a drunken puppeteer, Vegeta’s arms swing back and fire the Galick Gun right down at all of you! Goku leaps into action, holding the blast back. Your uncle… looks more annoyed than upset. “Vegetaaaa. What did you tell me?”

“NOW IS NOT THE TIME KAKAROT!” he yells back.

“You told me this wouldn’t happen!”

“AND… IT… WON’T!” Vegeta struggles to bring his arms back, tail lashing angrily. Crrraaaap crap crap crap. Baby laughs mockingly at him. “YOU SHUT UP!”

“Just a matter of time…” Baby repeats. “Do you want to be next, Son Goku? Won’t THAT be a surprise for Maple. The monkey boy she fell for under MY command.”

“Sorry Baby! She’d get really mad if I let you take control!” Goku finally deflects the attack upward. Vegeta brings his arms behind his back, keep them from moving. And… he actually manages it, though you can tell it’s not easy for him.

“I guess you’re ready for the second wave. Oh, but how will you manage when I can have Vegeta attack the lot of you whenever I wish? YEAHAHAHAHAHA-”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch461Ux75a4

“-ha?”

Tapion and Minotia both play their ocarinas, you flying up, forcing your way against the intense gravity to Vegeta, placing your hands on his arms. Letting out pulses of Magic timed with the songs, the nanomachines inside Vegeta are drawn out of his arms, Magic blasting into them in slow waves and eradicating them. Probably isn’t anything like what Gohan can do, but he’s busy with his own mission. You’re just going to have to make due! …Staaaarting to feel a bit woozy as you do this.

Vegeta brings his arms forward again, looking them over. He glances back at you, the typical scowl on his face… but even with that, he gives you an appreciative nod. Vegeta stands ready. “You were saying?”

“I CAN TRY THIS AS MANY TIMES AS I WISH!” Baby yells at him. The gravity increases again, and the winds filled with sparkles of silver once more blast out. The Cell Sentai all have to bring up barriers of their own to avoid it… wait a second.

>A. Attack them! They don’t want to be infected!

“Everyone, go after the Cell Sentai! Tapion, Minotia, work with me to keep them safe!” You draw the Sword of Braves, energy flowing around it.

“Got it, ‘cous!” Peppa brings out her Power Pole and spins it around, Wind Magic swirling at the tip and mixing with her Ki, the Power Pole now formed into a drill spear. She leaps forward, mom and dad moving along with her, Goku and Vegeta teaming up to try and do some damage themselves. Adipos and Mytos attempt to guard the rest of their group, but they struggle to keep the onslaught at bay.

The silver particles in the hurricane-strength gusts of wind scatter across the habitat, but thanks to the efforts of you, Tapion, and Minotia, you force the nanomachines away from your allies, letting blasts of Light and Lightning that destroy them. Melanos and Goku get in a heated battle, your uncle taking some damage, but thanks to Tapion and Minotia none of the nanomachines reach him.

“Izumi, you can’t possibly believe you can hold out forever, right?” Baby asks condescendingly. “Better you not strain yourself any more than you need. You’ll have a position of luxury and glory, the universe bending to your will.”

“You mean let me exist as your little doll to play with? No thanks… and I don’t need to hold out forever. Just long enough to break something you can’t easily replace…” You grin wildly. “After all… I’m sure you’ve heard of how hard these are to repair.”

Baby’s face raises an eyebrow. “What are you-?”

“TAKE THIS!” You form the Hero’s Barrier infused with Shadow Magic, amplified by your form even more. As the oppressive weight of the gravity pushes down on it, cracks of energy echo through the sphere. A thunderous snap follows as the red tint of the area is pushed away, what seems like a wave of gravity barreling through the area until it hits the ground all around you. The metallic surface bends and breaks and ruptures, Baby’s face stretched and squashed and distorted before shattering.

Gravity back to normal, you collapse, your aura fading and your clothes changing back as well. You fall to the ground, panting heavily. There’s no witty retort to that from Baby, and that alone is enough to make this feel worth it. You turn your head a bit to try and look over everyone, your eyes widening as you see Neuros headed right for you, tail-spear in hand. Peppa comes to your aid, teleporting right in front and blocking his spear with her drill spear.

“Oh no you don’t.” your cousin tells the blue-haired bugman.

“Hmnh.” Neuros leaps back. “Cutting it close, Izumi. I have to say, I’m surprised you could do something like that.” He… then lowers his spear, his guard still up, but no longer on the offensive. The same manic grin from before appears on his face. “Next time, I’ll have to see just how far you can push me.”

“N-next time?” you repeat in a pained tone. Ow. Hurting. It’s like when your leg falls asleep and you move it but but ALL over your body owwww.

Melanos appears next to him, the rest of the Cell Sentai grouping together. “Weighing our options, it looks like we should return to Dr. Gero before Baby gets any bright ideas about us.” You notice… some bits of silver on them. They all still seem in control of themselves, but it might not be for long. “Son Goku! Brave heroes of Earth! You can claim victory today, but know that our next encounter will be all the more challenging! Cell Sentai!”

“TOUH!” They all strike a pose.

“Ah… and one last thing. Tell 16 that his father does not blame him for the decision he’s made.” Melanos finishes, adding with a smirk, “Nor his mother.”

>A. Wait, hold on, we are NOT done here!

Just so you know in the future, modifying someone else's write-in makes it a new write-in. If you want that modded write-in in, just make your own write-in to garner support. Way too many times have you tried leeching off of other write-ins with your modded versions to get your way.

Of course, the person you supported was okay with it, but it's not always the case that it'll be welcomed.

I'll just be sitting there, hoping someone else likes my write-in enough to support it, and then, like a dream, it gets a reply!

The nightmare that ensues is as follows:
"SUPPORTING, THAT WRITE-IN WAS PRETTY GUD BUT HERE ARE A LIST OF CHANGES I WANT THAT COMPLETELY REDEFINE THE WRITE-IN TOWARDS MY OWN AGENDA THAT GO AGAINST THE DIRECTION YOU WANTED TO GO IN BUT I THINK THAT MY PREFERRED DIRECTION IS MUCH BETTER CUZ FUCK ANYONE WHO ISN'T ME Y'KNOW"

And if I want that support to get 1% of my write-in in, I'll just have to lie back and take it and think of Texas.

So, you either support a write-in or you don't. Hobson's Choice. If you believe you have a better version of that write-in, post it, and it'll get votes of support if it's truly better. You have nothing to lose that way, certainly a lot more votes to gain, but you're not imposing on anyone else either.

“W-wait, what was that about 16 having a mom?” you ask aloud. A sharp pain travels down your side as you try to push yourself up. “O-oww… S-Senzu please?” Peppa quickly comes to your side as you call for the Senzu.

“What, you think Gero just speed dialed a stork for his son?” Osteos questions like you’re not aware of how babies work. “Took a few hairs and gave himself a clone to raise?”

Your dad opens his mouth. “A-”

“No one’s asking you, Acer.” Osteos cuts him off.

“Rude.”

“Pass that on to him, please.” Melanos requests.

“...Alright.” Senzu down’d, Peppa helps you stand. Still, you look over the six bugmen. “You know, I’d really rather we not keep fighting as foes. But whatever. You’re still loyal to Gero and everything. What does he even want at this point? You all helped Baby take over the Earth! An alien was literally in control of the world, and Gero just up and not only let it happen, but encouraged it!” You wave your arms dramatically for emphasis. “And yet he blames my dad and aunt and uncle Goku for everything still, doesn’t he?”

Melanos smiles. “All true. And yet, look at what Baby did in such a short amount of time. It’s helped Dr. Gero… figure a few things out. And, if we’re being honest here…” His arms cross as he looks down his nose at you. “I think we both know any alliance with Baby would be temporary.”

“So you’re not as stupid as you all look.” Vegeta growls at them.

“Guess we could say the same about you, tiny.” Mytos retorts to him.

The Saiyan prince’s eye twitches. “You’re leaving now, right?”

“Awwww! Did the poor little monkey get mad being reminded he’s so close to a Tuffle’s height?” Hemos mocks him. He starts laughing, Vegeta firing a quick Ki blast in his face, not doing a lot of damage, but enough that it hurt him. “OW! BITCH!”

The rest of the Cell Sentai… laugh at that as Hemos rubs his face. “Do try to actually live through this. Your lot is much too fun to see you lose to a sourpuss like Baby.” Neuros comments.

“Better not show your faces on my home again, punks.” Peppa calls out. “Just because you’re acting cordial doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten what you did to Piccolo and Trip.”

Melanos gains a much more malicious smirk. “Good. Remember that lesson well.” And with that, the six of them vanish.

Your group gets word from Maple that most of the fighters that were under Baby’s control have been freed. Only Lapis remains to be exorcised of nanomachines, and sounds like Gohan’s on top of that. Taking a moment to look around at the ruined habitation area, you realize just how badly you ended up wrecking the place. It’s like you went at everything with an over-caffeinated jackhammer.

“So, any bright ideas on where Baby is hiding?” Vegeta asks. “I’d like to put an end to the coward.”

“He’s got to have some kind of core somewhere.” Acer comments. “We can try to search for whatever is giving off the most amount of energy.”

“I would recommend against that.” Chi-chi adds in. “We should regroup with Maple first. Make sure everyone’s accounted for.” Her eyes look down at Vegeta’s arm. “…Are you sure you’re okay? Nothing lingering from-?”

“Yes. I’m sure.” Vegeta grunts.

“Eh, I’m with Chi-chi. Maple’s probably got a plan already.” Goku comments.

Tapion and Minotia merely look to you and Peppa. Well…

“I gotta admit, it’d be better to find Baby now. The longer we wait, the longer he has a chance to recover from all this.” You look to Peppa. “Whatcha think?”

“As much as I’d want to head on over and make sure mom and Gohan are okay, I have to agree. We need to take Baby down, as soon as possible.” your cousin agrees.

Vegeta nods approvingly. “Good. No more stalling, then.”

“Hey, one thing. Where’s Giru? He’s a Machine Mutant too, so he might be able to help us find the core.” you comment.

“Smart think, cous!” Peppa cracks her knuckles. “Probably still over at Capsule Corp.”

“Then have him relay to us what we need to know.” Vegeta starts to march towards where Baby’s face was. “I have a hunch on where to start, though.” He fires a large Ki blast at the wall, shattering it… and opening it up to a new passageway!

“Well, looks like there’s no changing HIS mind.” your mom grumbles.

“Just don’t get taken over again!” Goku warns cheekily.

“Shut it, Kakarot.”

As you start to move forward, you feel something… “off” about the air. Like some of it is getting mixed in from somewhere. Quickly asking Peppa if she can smell something off (and getting a brief but judging look from her), she notices it too. Mom quickly tries to sense out for something unusual going on. Your dad gets a flash of warning.

“GET OUT OF THERE, NOW!” Acer commands, most of you making it out just in time to see sections of the scenery shift inside the sphere. Where once was an almost forest-like landscape, suddenly a large, blistering-hot caldera appears in its place. An orange fluid of some kind bubbles inside it, not actual lava, but something that’s definitely giving you flashbacks to the tournament.

And out from the caldera pops a large, centipede-like creature, its body giving off an eerie glow, as if it were on fire. Its form skitters around, detecting you all and letting out awful chittering noises. More start to emerge, all of them letting out the same, awful noise. “Oh COME ON!” you exclaim in exasperation.

https://youtu.be/jXpx1H4gZz4

Jets of that orange fluid spray out of their mouths, your group managing to avoid it, Goku even letting out an explosive wave strong enough to force them back into the little caldera they emerged from. Vegeta barks for you all to start moving, the interior ending up more maze-like and chaotic, dull metallic colors of whites and greys and and blues and silvers. But it doesn’t stay that way for long. Another strange feeling in the air, this time definitely targeting all of you. Your group escapes just in time to see the area shimmer and then… just “vanish” for a moment, only to be replaced with a completely different section of the station.

“It would be oh so much easier if you stood still.” Baby’s voice echoes through the vast network hallways and tunnels and tubes and more. “But… I’m not in any rush just yet.”

‘Maple, please tell me Giru’s got some good news for us.’ you ask telepathically, appearing in an area that’s significantly better-lit and less dull, though the purples and oranges that replace it don’t really seem any better. To make matters worse, gravity is fluctuating wildly as you fly through the area, some machine mutants popping out of seemingly nowhere to try and harass all of you.

‘I’m working with him to try and get an idea, it seems like there’s a big mass of Baby’s Ki centered around… 7 kilometers from your position. But getting there might not be easy. Can you all sit tight while we regroup with you, or are you going to go on ahead?’

You relay the information and question to everyone. Vegeta and Acer are ready to push on ahead, Acer forseeing something up ahead that’s probably Baby. Goku and Chi-chi are content to wait it out, and Tapion and Minotia are ready to defer to you and Peppa again. Well…

>A. Let’s press on then, we’re too close to stop now

“We’re charging ahead, right Peppa?!” you almost cheer out, thrusting your fist into the air. She cheers in affirmation, powering up. “Maple, just tell us where to go!”

‘Okay, but be careful. And Goku, you better watch over them!’

“Got it, Maple.” Goku replies, powering up once again as well. Chi-chi requests everyone take a moment to fully restore their stamina and strength, healing what injuries everyone else sustained while fighting the Cell Sentai as you start to fly… well, relative to the Earth, “up” towards Baby.

https://youtu.be/LaMkiLPa-NA

Across the entire area, Baby’s face appears all over, a smug, confident grin on every single one of his big dumb mugs. In unison, they laugh mockingly and taunt you. “Did you really think I wouldn’t save my best for last? Third time’s the charm!”

The air starts to shift again, and this time you hear someone’s voice, not Baby’s… almost casting a spell of some sort. Can’t really make out what they’re saying, but it sounds like… “Paparapapa.” At the same time, it’s like you fly into a wall of high gravity, your body crashing against the very air inside it as the intensity ramps up. You… you’re not giving up… you’re too close! “HENSHIN! YUUSHAAAA!” You power through, sending out a pair of Clothes Beams that form into high-durability lengths of rope for Tapion and Minotia to grab on to. Beams fire out at your group from all directions, Chi-chi using her Spirit Bits to cover you all from the attacks. Most everyone makes it through the intense gravity… except…

“Chi-chi, come on!” your dad calls to your mom. “You’re almost-!”

“Too late!” Baby laughs out.

Your dad gets a flash of foresight. He throws the Masamune to you without saying a word and grabs hold of her… and they both vanish, right before you can reach them. Goku calls back to them, “ACER, CHI-CHI!”

“MOM! DAD!” No no no! NO! No where did they, where did they go?!

But the words fail to reach them. In their place… what the? A tall, muscular, silver alien with elf ears? “RILDO?!” Peppa exclaims.

“Hello again. Still think you’ve won?” the alien asks her, opening his mouth and letting out a green beam of energy. Tapion acts fast, flying up to her and blocking the attack with his barrier, the beam reflected into one of the large, glowing orange tubes pumping some kind of fluid past you… encasing it in silver.

“AGH! I’LL BE GLAD IF I NEVER HAVE TO SEE THAT COLOR EVER AGAIN!” Peppa screams. “POWER POLE EXTEND!” Her staff slams into his gut, forcing him into the high-gravity area. “Izzy! Hit him with the Gravity Blow!”

“Right!” You dash towards the silver alien, slamming your hands into his chest and letting out an intense blast of dark energy. As he’s pushed down deeper, the gravity starts to rip his body apart.

“Come on!” Vegeta calls out, flying up again.

You look at the Masamune, your eyes starting to water, but… no. No, they’re tough. They’ll make it through this. The further you fly up, the more intense the forces guarding it start to get. You even see some… things that look like what was in Totenhotep’s pyramid, converted into machines. Right at the end, you witness a gigantic, mechanical monster… looking like the unholy combination of a snake and spider.

And it laughs.

“You said scum like me doesn’t deserve to know your name.” it speaks to you in a hellish voice. “But now I know it all too well… IZUMI MAHOGANY! THE CHILDREN SHALL CLAIM YOUR WORLD!”

Vegeta grows and charges forward. “You’re in my way!”

“Peppa! Can you sense him? We’re so close, we can’t stall now!” You grip both the Masamune and Sword of Braves tight.

“I… I think so. Give me a moment.”

As she searches for Baby, you quickly contact Maple and let her know what happened to your mom and dad. Can’t leave them alone like this, but can’t let Baby keep this up a moment longer. Maple says they’ll be found soon. She promises that… that Baby won’t take them too. Not while you’re so close. Up ahead, Vegeta crashes into the spider-snake monster, unleashing a ferocious barrage of blows against it, Goku chasing after him.

“GOT ‘EM!” Peppa shouts. “Ready?!”

You, Tapion, and Minotia all grab on. “Ready!”

Traveling through the station, you arrive in a massive dome-shaped room. It’s lit by ominous purple and red lights, and right in the center you see three figures. Two look like metallic, skeletal humanoids, tall, lanky, and with a piercing gaze on their faces. Between them, there seems to be a figure attached to a throne-like object, several pumps and tubes attached it. You can feel… just a tremendous amount of energy coming off of it. No, not just off of it, all around you.

“You’ve finally made it.” Baby comments, his body obscured unnaturally. Further away, you notice someone up in a cage, a large person that looks like they’re in tremendous pain, being forced to chant something… oh no. “Lord Konpei!”

“You know, I’m still yet to wrap my head around some of the more advanced Magics your group is capable of. I tried asking one of the most knowledgeable about it, but I just could never get an answer on how to do it myself… so I had him help me instead.” Baby continues. You notice he looks… different from all the faces he’s been showing of himself, even with his body obscured. “That you appear immune to my control is also exceptionally frustrating… but you have your limits, Izumi. And Peppa! Peppa, Peppa, Peppa. How long have you been waiting for this?”

“Putting you in the dirt like I should have when we first met? Too long.” your cousin growls out. “You’re an unrelenting monster, Baby. How many have suffered because of your ambitions? Your megalomania? Your unrelenting evil?”

“Clearly not enough.” Baby chuckles unapologetically. “Because I still haven’t made you royalty yet. After all, most of me is your proper King. Mm… no, Emperor.” Eyes focusing on him, it almost looks like he has some sort of crown and cape on.

“You’re no King. You care nothing of those you claim dominion over.” Tapion retorts.

“Who even are you, elf-boy? Go home, your betters are talking.” Baby waves at him dismissively, you noticing a bit of his arm is… green? Huh?

The ground underneath rumbles, and behind you bursts forward the spider-snake monster… Vegeta smashing it through the ground. “BABY!” he roars, golden aura sparking furiously. “I have had ENOUGH of you!” Vegeta elbows the monster aside, Goku catching it by the tail and swinging it around, finally trying to fling it at the three figures in the center of the room. It bounces away harmlessly, barriers over all of them.

“Ah, almost. Goku, Vegeta, you two have been real thorns in my side, but soon you’ll have no choice but to bend the knee to me.” He then starts counting the group.

https://youtu.be/3e7DUBuksRQ

Maple and Gohan appear next to you and Peppa. Your aunt looks… pissed. Angrier than you’ve seen her in… honestly almost as long as you can remember. “You think you’re going to get away with that attempt to kidnap my brother and my oldest friend, Baby? We’ll get them back.”

“Once I’m done with you I’ll gladly reunite you with them, Maple.”

Gohan shakes his head. “You’re not going to make it that far.”

“And that… is where you are wrong.” Baby’s aura finally ignites, his form fully visible. And… you gasp as you see it. He’s tall, easily as tall as Melanos was, maybe a bit taller. His body is like some kind of… mixture of the Cell Sentai’s various forms, all rolled into one, all with black and gold and blue and red armor mixed with the green, spotted bugman form. “Surprised? Don’t be. I’ve been planning this since I had my little… meeting with Dr. Gero. I helped him finish his little project… and took notes on how he made them.” Baby stands, his hand motioning at Gohan. “But it was your little stunt that confirmed that I needed to finish this project sooner rather than later. How do you like it? The culmination of Tuffle technology, of your Earth’s most brilliant minds brought together, of the many races you all have come to consider your allies. Every strength merged into the perfect being. And with LIMITLESS potential for improvement!”

The pair flanking him kneel as Baby gestures proudly over his new form. “The Tuffle Emperor shall reign over the entire Universe. All Hail Baby! Ave Imperator! ”

He powers up and shakes what feels like the entire station. “You know… even Emperor is probably selling it a bit short. How about… GOD Emperor?”

Baby slowly starts to walk forward, power surging around him. The air near his body shimmers a little, as he orders the pair flanking to move forward as well. “Arashio, Uranaio, let’s give our long-awaited guests a proper welcome! Befitting those who are about to become royalty!” he gestures dramatically, theatrically, even. Looking at Tapion and Minotia once more, though, he adds, “Except for those two. If they survive long enough to be captured… eh, hand ‘em over to Mugen. I’m sure his stupid collection will appreciate them.” The pair bring up their barriers, hands on their swords.

“I’ll be happy if I never have to hear your damn voice ever again!” Vegeta barks out.

“You’re going to pay for everything you’ve done, Baby!” Goku adds in.

“AS YOU WISH, MY EMPEROR.” However, the metallic, skeletal warrior, looks over at Peppa, pointing his polearm at her. “SON PEPPA. TODAY IS THE DAY HISTORY WILL DETERMINE IF YOU WILL BE BRANDED A PARIAH OR NOT.”

The other figure, a being similar to the first but now clearly only possessing one massive optic and a strange staff in his hands, starts to glow with greenish energy. “I FORSEE YOUR FATES UNDER OUR EMPEROR’S RULE. I SHALL ENSURE IT COMES TO PASS.”

Maple powers up. “Buddy, you’ve got no idea what we’re capable of. Wild Card. Our fates are not set in stone.”

“THEN I SHALL HELP CHISEL THEM IN MYSELF.”

“Ah, that reminds me. We’ll have a couple extra guests soon… but I suspect the three of us are enough on our own.” Baby comments cryptically.

Izumi or Separate sounds fine.

I have an idea for how I want to approach a fight with Baby, but I'm not sure if now's a good time.

It's not enough to defeat or destroy Baby. I wanna defenestrate him in the other sense and put someone more fitting to be King of the MaMus in his place. We at the Core CPU of this thing?

If Giru has a contest of wills against Baby, he could potentially take over as the dominant personality. Baby has been carelessly invading and consuming other nations, discarding them as worthless and locking himself away until a suitable host appeared. Giru has been exploring the universe, borne witness to many cultures, and even the interwebz. A Ruler is not just someone who uses their nation as a tool to achieve what only the Ruler wants, a Ruler is also a representative of their people's thoughts, feelings, culture, symbols, music... their MEMES.

It's time for Baby to get memed on, and Sword doubts Giru's up to the challenge but I'm sure that if Dr. Briefs sticks in a bunch of RAM and we share our energy with Giru, he has a chance. After all, his Scouting abilities, they can analyze function even at a glance, and predict how a civilization would develop as a threat from the time he first judges them. He can see trends, he can predict trends. Using these abilities, he can predict memes that aren't even out yet, and USE THEM

All hail God-King Girugamesh!

That's what I wanna do, but it can probably wait when it's just Baby.

Does this sound too silly, do you want a serious fight?

>>3912405

Gohan:
>B.
>G. Try to feel out opponents and captives to see if exorcism is a viable option to remove any of them from the field.

Peppa:
>B. KICK THE BABY
>G. Make this fight as mix-up as possible. Come at him from different directions, break off to hammer one of his allies before refocusing, Play off the....land...scape? Keep Baby guessing and not looking at your allies stripping his support. And never don't trash talk.

Izumi:
>F.
>A. Confuse possible foresight with too many variables a la multi-form and try to remove or destoy it as quickly as possible to support the others.

https://youtu.be/hMg6tbEpiLE

Okay Gohan, Konpei’s in danger and Baby’s going to have a serious edge in fighting you all the longer he has ‘em under control. Think, think… ‘Mom!’ you contact Maple telepathically. ‘Can you get a read on the cage Baby’s keeping Konpei in? Is there anything protecting him?’

Maple’s eyes dart towards the cage as she brings up her Spirit Bits. ‘Seems like. Definitely a barrier of some kind around it. There may be a power source inside it or something.’

‘Bah, INSIDE it. Of course.’ So much for all the times you see a power source outside an energy barrier in shows and games and- …Wait a second. ‘Got an idea. Can you somehow get us inside that thing?’

‘I-inside?!’ Maple gives you a concerned look. ‘Gohan, if you’re that close-’

‘With a barrier around us, using your Spirit Bits.’ Baby raises his hand in your direction, the gravity around you intensifying immensely. You dodge aside, Maple trying to force him back by hitting him with her Clothes Beam to restrain his arm, only for the weights she makes to fall to the ground as they smack against the barrier around Baby. ‘Soon would be preferred!’

Peppa launches herself at full speed against Baby, diverting his attention from you and mom. Thanks sis. Maple gives you a nod, the two of you moving together as mom’s Spirit Bits surround the both of you. Locking on to Konpei’s Ki, she teleports in with you. Almost immediately, sirens start to flash… and silvery goo floods the cage!. However, the barriers around you both let off an electrical discharge that keeps them at bay, though they just keep coming. Gonna cut it close!

“Here goes nothing!” you call out, hands forward as you try to grab hold of the nanomachines inside Konpei. It takes a lot of work, way more than you’d felt in anyone before, but with a mighty yell you force them from his body. Konpei smiles weakly, then collapses, Maple grabbing him and pulling him to safety.

Maple then raises her hands, calling out, “POLTERGEIST BLITZ!” and filling the cage with a massive amount of Lightning, eradicating the nanomachines and freeing you all. Baby looks in your direction, annoyed… but not deterred. Damn.

Meanwhile, with Peppa…

https://youtu.be/85oFwNx8Pe4

“BABY!” you scream out as he tries to attack your brother. “I’M TAKING YOU DOWN!” Blasting right at him at full speed, you keep Baby’s focus on you, not anyone else! “RASENKEN!”

Spiraling, ferocious winds form around your fist as you try to slam it into Baby’s face, only for you to hit his barrier. “Peppa, was that supposed to do something?” he asks mockingly as his barrier takes your attack with little effort, your right arm still trying to punch through it.

“Yeah. Supposed to make your stupid mug not pay attention to this!” You let your Ki flow through the Power Pole and make a drill spear with it once more, holding it out with your left hand. “EXTEND!” you call out, digging into the floor beneath Baby and causing him to stumble slightly. You then kick off his barrier as you continue to break up the floor, landing on the wall surrounding the area. Dad tries to go after Baby with Vegeta, only for Baby to bolt out of the floor and dodge them both, even grabbing Vegeta by the tail and pummeling him into the ground. Goku manages to avoid getting his tail grabbed and tries to kick Baby in the back of the head, the barrier stopping his leg, though he avoids getting grabbed like Vegeta did.

Arashio forces Goku back, weapon slashing and stabbing towards your dad. Goku counters a few of the blows, but it seems the skeletal Machine Mutant has a few tricks up his sleeves, letting out blasts of electricity from his polearm each time he slashes towards Goku. Goku is able to back away by blasting him in the face with a Kamehameha. Okay, got an opening! You dig up the floor underneath Arashio and force him to dodge, only for you to use Instant Transmission to teleport to his side and slam your fist into his face. “JAN KEN! ROCK!” Your fist slams into his chest! “SCISSORS!” You block his staff with two fingers! “PAPER!” You deliver a palm strike to his torso that sends him flying at Baby! …Who dodges it and leaves only an afterimage for Arashio to pass through.

“Clever.” Baby smirks at you, swinging Vegeta at you and knocking you down. “But not clever enough!” Baby then fires a pair of beams from his eyes at you and Vegeta, the two of you getting up just in time to avoid the attack. You run along the domed walls until you reach the Power Pole again, grabbing it with your tail and trashing the floor around Baby.

“Time to collect the garbage! CLOTHES BEAM!” you yell towards him. Baby smirks as he’d just proven how ineffective the technique was against him, but you don’t use it against him directly. You scoop up the gathered debris in a massive blanket that cover Baby, crashing against his barrier with tremendous fury. Mom’s Spirit Bits then surround it and fire unrelentingly, electrified pulses surging through the debris and taxing the barrier. Doesn’t break it… but maybe this thing has a limit!

And with Izzy…

https://youtu.be/ubJ_fDuMbaM

Handing both the Sword of Braves and Masamune to Tapion and Minotia, you focus your Ki. Okay, like Sachie showed you, hands together, and… “HA!” Hands together, you create several copies of yourself. “Can you tell which is the real one?” the multitude of you ask, all of you going after the cyclops Machine Mutant.

He takes a moment, easily dodging and deflecting a few of the incoming blows. “CURIOUS TECHNIQUE. BUT LITTLE MORE THAN A NUISANCE.” He swings his staff and lets out a wave of green energy that forces your copies back, then seems to almost teleport as he reaches the main you. “I CAN SEE YOU JUST FINE.”

“No you can’t.” Grinning cheekily, you place both your hands in front of his face and let out a blast of black energy, blinding him temporarily though doing little in the way of damage. But it’s not damage you need to do. “TAPION, MINOTIA!”

“ON IT!” the brothers yell, both swords swinging down at Uranaio. The machine blocks the attack with his staff, though an attempt to let out a pulse of energy to break the blades fails, and the swords dig into his staff. Tapion and Minotia then leap away, leaving the swords there for you to grab on to.

Energy flowing from your form into both swords, you slash down harder and actually manage to break his staff into three pieces. He seems to teleport again, the pieces of his staff suddenly in his hands. He reconnects them and the staff is back in one piece, though it sparks when he tries to let out a pulse of energy through it. Just then, one of your copies strikes him with a blast of Lightning, the staff sparking again in his hands. Another freezes his legs to the floor, a third sets fire to the cape-like cloth, right near his neck. A fourth gets in close and hits the sparking staff with a blast of water, intensifying the damage and forcing him to drop it, a fifth jumping above him and knocking it away with Wind Magic. Your clones poof as he lets out several beams of energy from his body, but not because he destroyed them. Your full strength returns.

Hands forward in a shape halfway between a Kamehameha pose and you mimicking the maw of a monster, you charge a massive amount of Light Magic between your palms. “How about THIS?! BURST STREAM!” A powerful blast of energy shoots out, blinding white light causing an explosion where Uranaio stood. When the smoke clears, though, he isn’t there.

“CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER.” his metallic voice comments behind you all. “THAT DID SOME ACTUAL DAMAGE.” You look back and see that part of his chest armor is dented and broken slightly… though repairing.

“Mom, get ‘em out of here! We can’t let Baby recapture him!” you tell her as the two of you float down from the now-broken cage.

“But, Gohan-” Maple tries to interrupt, but you shake your head.

“I’ll back everyone up. Peppa’s still trying to hold them off. Please, trust me. I’ve got a plan.”

https://youtu.be/lWKQiZVBtu4

Maple reluctantly agrees to it, teleporting away with Lord Konpei. You then contact Izzy, catching her attention with your… kinda crazy plan. But crazy might just be what you need right now! You form a Spirit Ball and head over to her with it, Peppa dashing to knock Uranaio away from your cousin. With the Spirit Ball in hand, you infuse it with Light Magic as Izzy mixes in Shadow Magic, the sphere growing to about the size of your head, chaotic energy pulsing and swirling around it.

“Here goes nothing!” you both call out as you command the ball of energy towards Uranaio, giving Izzy the chance she needs to head towards the staff the Machine Mutant was using, slamming both swords into it and shattering it again, this time for good. That distracts him long enough for the sphere to slam into him, hitting him again and again. Right as he seems like he’s going to block, you direct the attack all the way over to Arashio, Peppa using the Power Pole like an oversized bat to knock him into the sphere. With it barreling him into the ground, you direct it to start bouncing against his prone form, almost like the sphere is being dribbled on him.

As you do this, though, Vegeta and Goku try to take on Baby again, the Neo Machine Mutant dodging their blows effortlessly, finally grabbing Goku by the neck and pummeling him, Vegeta just barely avoiding getting trapped in one of Baby’s high-gravity fields. Goku’s thrown against the domed ceiling hard enough that he’s stuck there, Baby laughing manically as he starts to barrage Goku with small blasts of energy.

“OH NO YOU DON’T!” You run up and direct the Spirit Ball to approach you, Baby ignoring you completely and continuing to fire. “You leave my dad alone!” Leaping into the air, you catch the orb of energy and add more of your own to it. Finally, you flip in midair with it and slam it right down at Baby, yelling out, “CHAOS DUNK!”

And with Peppa…

https://youtu.be/NEwFYBVVFqw

“I HAVE SEEN WHAT YOU COULD HAVE BEEN, PEPPA. IT IS A GLORIOUS FUTURE.” Uranaio tells you, letting out blasts of green lightning. “WHOLE WORLDS BENDING TO YOUR COMMAND, WITH YOU AS ONE OF THE GREATEST OF BABY’S TUFFLES. FITTING ROYALTY.”

“And it’s not the future for me, sorry!” You deflect the attacks with your Power Pole, using it to dig up a bit more of the chamber as you do. “I’ve got a different kind of future in mind!”

“DO YOU BELIVE SUCH A FUTURE WILL LAST, GIRL?” Right as you’re about to kick him down, he appears to teleport out of the way. You then feel something hit you in the cheek from out of nowhere, only for him to appear on the other side of you. “DO YOU THINK YOUR DESTINY IS… HER?”

Before he can try his trick again, you let out an Explosive Wave. He’s knocked into some broken parts of the wall and crashes right through it. “I’ll make it last! I don’t care what you think you’ve seen! My destiny? It’s sure as hell not with the likes of you!” Your hand makes a gun shape. “RASEN MAGNUM!” Several spinning blasts of energy shoot out from your fingertip, continuing until he tries to teleport once more. Right as he does, you trick him by teleporting away from him and to Arashio.

The Machine Mutant blocks your Power Pole with his staff, trying to push you back. “YOU WILL NOT LAST LIKE THIS.”

“I’m not even CLOSE to my limit yet, and you know that!” You duck under him and kick him in the legs, causing him to stumble. “And even if I were, I’d break them once more!” Your tail slashes at the Machine Mutant, sending him barreling towards Uranaio. The two then suddenly appear a good distance away. You’re doing damage. Just need to keep it up!

Over to Izzy…

Your swords smash into the staff, breaking it for good. Your attention turns back to the Spirit Ball as Gohan commands it, you helping him direct it, making sure your combined energies are in sync. Tapion and Minotia regroup with you as you see Baby mercilessly attack Goku. You’re about to help him with you feel two presences land near you. Turning back… you see your mom and dad! …And they do NOT look okay. “I-Izzy… r-run!” Acer pleads with you, his body moving unnaturally as he’s forced to fight you. You’re forced to move away, Tapion and Minotia guarding against Chi-chi and keeping her from going after you as well.

“Dad! What did-?” You try to ask, but he makes a grab for the Masamune.

“RUN!” He nearly yanks it away, only for you to instinctively hit him in the gut with the pommel of the Sword of Braves.

Baby! That SON OF A-! AGH! “I’m not running!” You headbutt him and kick him down, letting your Magic flow through the swords. “And you’re staying put!” You slash with both blades, but instead of letting out thin blasts of energy, you let out two frigid blasts of Ice Magic that crash into your father. He’s stopped in his tracks. “I’m not letting him take control of anyone else!”

“I can’t control myself, Izzy! You need to get away!” your father pleads. Heat builds up from his body, letting out an explosion of Fire. He then manages to get through your defenses, fist slamming into your face and sending you to the hole Vegeta burst out of, your body skirting to the edge. There, you see an injured… Lapis? But he’s back to normal! And he’s with a girl with black and purple hair, and Piccolo! The three of them fighting against that Rildo guy, trying to keep him from entering the battle up here.

“CHAOS DUNK!” Gohan’s voice echoes through the room. The sphere of energy you made with him crashed into Baby’s barrier, the raw power of it finally breaking through! Baby’s taken by surprise, as Gohan lands the first real blow against him… though that does less damage than he hoped.

Vegeta pants heavily, Goku falling beside him and trying to get back up. Tapion and Minotia are still holding Chi-chi back, but this might not last…

Gohan:

>A. Go all-out! Super Saiyan 3!
>B. Try to bring out Baby’s nanomachines!

Gotta back up dad! You fly over to him and help him up. Your aura surges up once Goku stands, Baby rubbing his cheek. “All that for a little tap?”

“There’s WAY more where that came from, Baby!” Your power increases, your hair growing longer, the thrashed room shaking tremendously as you finally power up into Super Saiyan 3. Peppa flies by you, dad taking the initiative to power up as well.

Goku smiles at you and Peppa. “Ready, kids?”

“Ready!” you and your sister shout in unison. Vegeta flies ahead of you all, blasting at Baby with a ferocious barrage of Ki blasts, Baby deflecting them as best he can. You and dad fly behind him and attempt to slam your fists into his back, only for Baby’s wings to open up, the stinger-like tail not only extending to block your blows, but circling around and grabbing your arm, smashing you into Goku and knocking him into the floor… and then stabbing into your arm. A sharp pain travels down it.

“You were able to purge me once before, Gohan!” Baby turns his head to you. “But I’ve been waiting oh so long for another chance! Now, join me. I’ll make you a proper King.”

“Sorry, no means no!” with your free arm, you build up a tremendous amount of Ki and Fire Magic into it, your hand glowing red. “BURNING CRUSHER!” you yell out, slamming your hand down into Baby’s tail and causing him to give his first real shout of pain. “HEAT… END!”

The tail explodes and a shriek of pain escapes Baby’s mouth, causing him to stumble over and finally take a few of Vegeta’s Ki blasts head-on. You pant as you get back, trying to move your left arm to add your own… only nothing moves. You look at it and see it’s… horribly bloodied and broken, some of the skin and flesh from it just burned off. The pain ends up too much to take, and you quickly drop back down to Super Saiyan 2, holding your mangled arm and falling to your knees.

Peppa…

https://youtu.be/irPyQoL7UJg

Even with Baby damaged from that attack, Gohan, he’s… he’s… No. No not again. NO. NO! “RRRAAAAAAAGH!” You bolt at Baby hard enough that the floor underneath you breaks and shatters. Baby sees you coming though, and swipes his hand at both you and Vegeta, forcing the two of you back and you into the smashed up wall of the chamber, Baby increasing the gravity on you to try and force you there.

Arashio and Uranaio march towards you. The two of them raise their hands, the mangled bits of machinery starting to twist and wrap around you, forced against your body to try and keep you still. “RILDO DETECTED THIS KIND OF POWER BEFORE. BABY HAS PREPARED FOR SUCH AN OCCASION.”

“YOU AIN’T PREPARED FOR JACK!” you yell out. Your power erupting around you, you stand against the oppressive gravity and form a Ki Drill, breaking through the attempt to restrain you and barreling right at Baby, the Machine Mutants forced away from you as you rocket right at ‘em. “SPIRAL… BRREEAAAAAAKKKEEEERRRR!” you yell at the top of your lungs, Baby arrogantly attempting to grab hold of you… only for you to move ever slightly enough to get through his defenses and smash right into his chest, boring a hole through him. Landing a good distance away, you try to turn back to face him… only to see Baby right in front of you.

He delivers a chop to your neck that you try to guard against, but just can’t manage quickly enough. The hole you made in his chest starts to regenerate as you hit the floor. “That’s it. That’s the kind of power I’ve been wanting to see in you again.” Baby grabs you by the hair and lifts you up. “Come on, Peppa! Show me the power you tried to kill me with! Hahahahaha!”

Goku’s fist hits Baby in the back of the head, causing him to let go of you. Your dad is… livid. His tail lashes as he leaps forward again, managing to land a few solid blows against Baby, enough that you’re at least able to see someone arrive next to Gohan.

Izzy…

https://youtu.be/NcCrHZAKfPI

“You can’t fight me like this, Izzy! Hurry out of here, quick!” dad calls to you.

“I am… not… letting him take you!” Your green aura flares up around you. “CLOTHES BEAM!” you call out. Acer tries to dodge away, only for you to control the materialized cloth weights you create and grab him by each limb, yanking them down and having them bore into the ground. Looking to Tapion and Minotia, you give them the warning to move and let out another Clothes Beam that traps Chi-chi.

The brothers head over to you. “Izumi, are you okay?” Tapion asks, noticing your heavy breathing.

“B-bit shook by that… but I’ll manage. Can you two do what you did when Vegeta got taken over? Help me try and purge the nanomachine from them?” you ask almost pleadingly.

They give you a nod, bringing their ocarinas to their mouths. You still your breathing, focusing your Magic as you reach your dad. Timed with their music, you let out pulses of energy that force out and purge the nanomachines from them. Not as neatly as Gohan does it, but it works well enough that your dad regains control of his limbs. Next, mom! Just like before, you purge the nanomachines, the sound of Gohan and Peppa’s screams hurting your ears. You force yourself not to look at Gohan as you feel his Ki drop back down.

But right as they’re purged of Baby’s influence, you see Arashio and Uranaio appear above you. Chi-chi tries to force you away as Arashio thrusts his weapon down at her… only for you to block it with dad’s sword. Wordlessly, you fill the Sword of Braves with your energy and swing it around, the sword slashing through the Machine Mutant’s chest. He falls back, body sparking. Uranaio tries his trick one more time, appearing above Acer, only for you to have predicted his movement, slashing through him with an X-Strike.

Both of them down, you see Tapion staring at you, ocarina still at his mouth, an odd look on his face. Impressed, joyful, maybe even just a little scared. “Remind me never to anger you.”

You laugh, blushing a little, but your attention goes right back to Baby when you see the pair slammed to the ground by red lights above them. Peppa is pulling herself back up, Goku’s barely able to hold Baby there, and Gohan… “MAPLE!” you shout with joy as you see her tending his wound.

Her red eyes glare at Baby once Gohan’s healed up, with him forcing out bits of silver from his now healed arm. “You’re going to pay for that.”

Baby catches Goku’s fist and looks at Maple, a smirk appearing on his face again. “I’m sorry. You’re much too late.” The air around him shimmers, Goku trying to punch again… and only managing to hit his barrier.

You then notice Vegeta looking around the room curiously, like he’s trying to sense for something. He sees one particularly smashed up part of the room and focuses his gaze there. “Maple, I need you to do me a favor. I have a plan… but I need your help.”

Gohan and Peppa are surprised by the request. Maple raises an eyebrow at him, but seems to agree to it. “Okay. I need everyone who’s able to keep Baby distracted and try to bring down his barrier again!”

Gohan:

“Fine by me! One last shot! YOU WANT TO SEE US AT OUR BEST, BABY?! THEN HERE, TAKE IT! TAKE ALL OF IT! RRAAAAAAAAGGGHHH!” All right Gohan, one more try! Super Saiyan 3, full power! Peppa starts to power up as well, strength surging past even yours.

Goku dodges away as Baby suddenly lets out a silvery blast of fluid from his hand, firing off a Ki blast at it and then pulling his hands back. “KAMEHAMEHA!”

Just as Goku fires, Baby thrusts his left hand forward, a black sphere in front of his palm. “REVENGE DEATH CANNON!” he yells out as the attack meets Goku’s Kamehameha, even pushing it back.

Here it goes! You draw your sword and raise it upward! Lightning courses through it, the sound of a thunderclap echoing through the area! “THUNDER! BREAK! SLAAAAAASH!” You leap at Baby and smash the thunderous sword against his barrier, trying with all your might to break through it! The power put out from it only grows stronger the more you try to break through it, expanding in size, but Baby’s definitely struggling now!

Peppa…

Out of the corner of your eye, you spot one more golden aura enter the fray! Raditz! His massive flowing golden hair behind him, he brings his hands forward. “BURN IN HELL, BABY! WEEKEND!” The purple beam makes contact with the barrier, straining it and forcing Baby to devote more power to it, allowing Goku’s attack to push back Baby’s, and give you a chance to do try something!

Your Ki Drill out, spinning wildly, you lock on to Baby’s Ki. “Time to see if this works!” Using Instant Transmission, you teleport to him, getting through his enlarged barrier, appearing right at his blind spot, where his tail once was. “SPIRAL BREAAKER!” you yell out as you thrust your hand forward, trying to stab at him with your drill.

Two extra arms sprout from Baby’s back, right under his wings, grabbing your arm before it makes contact with his flesh. “PEPPA! YOU THINK I WOULDN’T SEE THIS COMING?!” His grip on your arm gets tighter as he tries to push you back.

“It isn’t about seeing it coming! It’s about taking you down for good!” Your feet dig into the floor as you try to push forward with all your might, your flame-like red and yellow and orange aura contrasting his sinister black one. You’ve got him pinned but he’s not going down! “After everything you did, every little trick you pulled! Trying to mess with my head, trying to go after my friends, trying to infect my mom, and causing my brother to… to… ARGH!” Tail lashing wildly as you try to push up further. “For the Earth! For the Sodans! For EVERY SINGLE ONE of the people and animals you and your ilk twisted and tortured and mutated into monsters and slaves! I will not rest until you’re in Hell where you belong!!!”

“You… you care so much about your little friends… heh heh… hehaahahaha!” Spheres of energy form out of his back and fly out of the barrier. “THEN FINE, WATCH THEM ALL SUFFER!”

No! NO!

Izzy…

Oh come on NOW WHAT?! What look like black Spirit Bits shoot out of the barrier around Baby, headed… right towards Tapion and Minotia! NO! You move to intercept them, using your own Spirit Bits to duel them in midair. You notice though that the shots fired out from Baby’s Spirit Bits seem to spin out when they shoot, every one that hits instantly eradicating your Spirit Bits. You’re able to protect Minotia just fine, but the ones after Tapion make it through yours! You rush to his side and bring up the Hero’s Barrier to protect him, but a few shots make it through before you can bring it up.

“IZUMI!” Tapion calls to you.

“I-I’m fine!” you reply, in spite of the now bleeding wounds on you. “C-can you stand?”

Baby’s attention on all those attacking him, the gravity’s just weak enough for Tapion to yell out “KAIO-KEN!” and get out of the field, pulling Minotia to safety. He looks back at you, panting. “I-Izumi, you-!”

“I’M FINE!” you repeat, moving to intercept the black Spirit Bits. The next ones head towards your mom and dad, with you slicing away the restraints on them. While they struggle to get up as well, you feel your Ki start to fluctuate. Your energy won’t last like this, you… you need to do this. Holding your hands out, you fill your right with Shadow and left with Light Magic. Your armor starts to cover your hands as you charge forward almost like it’s instinctive, heavy, claw-like gauntlets pulsing with tremendous power. “HELL! AND! HEEEAAAAAAAVVVVEEEEEEENNNNN!”

The attack crashes into Baby’s barrier, and that’s the last push needed to break through it. It shatters and erupts with massive amounts of energy, a blinding light filling the area as a torrent of energy forces everyone away from Baby. You lose control of your form and return to normal once more, panting on the floor, landing awkwardly but at least not on anything that’d hurt. Your body’s still pretty badly banged up, wounds still bleeding, but… it’s… it’s nothing… you can’t handle… no! No come on, you can do this! Don’t lose consciousness yet!

Forcing yourself up just a little, you see that Raditz, Goku, and Gohan have dropped back to their base forms, Tapion and Minotia by Acer and Chi-chi, all of them completely spent. Your vision manages to catch sight of Baby and Peppa, your cousin still somehow holding on to her strength, but it’s not going to last. Baby clutches a wound in his side, blood dripping from his mouth. One of his wings looks like it was ripped off halfway, right near where his wound was. “Y-you… you’ve not got much strength left… y-you keep this up… and you might do some irreparable damage to your body, Peppa…”

“You leave…” Come on Izzy, up, on your feet. “Her…” Almost, just a bit more! “Alone!” Okay! You’re standing! …You’re standing and it’s a mistake! Ow, ow everything!

“Heh… heh haha… Izumi, what do you think you can do? You’ve got nothing left! NOTHING!”

Limbs trembling, you try to reach for something, anything, and- …huh. Capsule. “I’ve… heh… I’ve got this…” You bring the Capsule out. You know what’s inside it, but Baby doesn’t have a clue. And you can trick him with it. “Peppa, get away! GO, FLASHBANG!”

Your cousin leaps back, goggles tight over her eyes as she hears you call it out. Baby merely shields his as the Capsule opens. Except… there’s no blinding light. He’s confused, and looks down. A speaker sits before him. He looks at you like you made a mistake, smugly grinning.

Then it starts to play.

https://youtu.be/oHg5SJYRHA0

Baby’s eyes widen, then his left one twitches. You get the impression that a MASSIVE amount of… “information” comes flooding back to his memory. Ah Izzy, that was perfect. Baby hisses out, “YOU. YOU!”

But before he can start letting out a string of profanities, a massive power teleports in. “HELIX! GALICK GUN!”

>Pause.

Okay, gonna call it a night here, but I have a question. End thread and finish all of this next Friday, or continue one more day, starting tomorrow at ~4:30 pm PST? Y’all will have until 3 pm PST tomorrow to decide.

I wonder if the Geist Magnum can be improved to shoot bullets instead rays? Bullets are more effective than just lasers that cauterize because bullets warp in and tear the flesh, and mire importantly stay there and are a biiiitch to get out. Ki bullets could be good especially with Peppa's drilling, and there could even be the option of detonating them in the opponent's flesh.

>>3913573
Good question.

>>3913720
They don't fire "rays." It's a blast of energy, like >>3914437 . Always has been. Peppa's Rasen Magnum uses Wind Magic to spin the blast.

Anyway, we are back!

“HELIX! GALICK GUN!”

Vegeta fires the spiraling beam at Baby, the swirling purple engulfing the Neo Machine Mutant. You look back and see the massive golden form of his Oozaru body standing there. Mom leaps off of his shoulder and quickly flies over to Goku and Gohan, gathering them up and flying off to everyone else she can, the room buckling and breaking under Vegeta’s attack. Your strength flickers as you try to keep standing. Is that it? Did Vegeta finally stop Baby?

Oh Peppa why get your hopes up like that? Baby’s like some kind of survivalist cockroach.

“You… you DAMNABLE monkey!” Baby screams out, bursting forth from the beam, his damaged body even more mangled than before. Seething and livid, Baby lets out a scream and regrows his missing bodyparts… as you feel the air start to flow in the direction of Vegeta’s attack. Baby looks back, then chuckles. “Well, looks like you finally broke through the hull. I’ll have to have Bulma seal that… in a while. I don’t need oxygen, but the likes of you? Oh it won’t be long if that damage is as great as it seems.”

“YOU’LL BE DEAD BEFORE THAT HAPPENS.” Vegeta growls at Baby.

Bulma… damn it, where IS Bulma? You haven’t been able to sense her Ki anywhere, but… maybe she’s close by?

>A. Anyone, Senzu, quick!
>B. Mom, you need to find Bulma!
>C. Check with Videl or Pantea or Piccolo or something, you felt them close by, can they help?
>D. Help mom gather everyone up, get them away from danger!
>E. Something else?

“Anyone! Senzu, please!” you call out, Vegeta flying at Baby as the winds start to pick up. “Quick!” Maple quickly tosses one to you, you leaping to catch it before the winds suck it out into the void. Downing the bean, you feel your strength return, aura surging up. Looking to mom attending to everyone, you yourself are tempted to try and help… but there are a couple of more pressing matters at the moment. “Mom, you need to find Bulma! Baby still has her under his control somewhere, and that might be the key to ending this for good!”

“Wait, Peppa, what are you going to do?” she asks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elbJFYakbUI

“Gonna save the world.” You fly off at full-force… though not at the battling Baby and Vegeta. Not at first. You instead launch full-speed in the direction of the rushing air. Through mangles bits and pieces of the station, you see a gigantic, almost… island-sized hole in the station come into view. Well, time to patch it up! “CLOTHES BEAM!”

Recalling reading about modern spacesuit materials back in class, you mimic the materials and mix them in with some PTO Armor… adding just a little flair to it, for good measure. Big image of your mug giving a wink and holding up a victory sign. The hole plugged, you stop to admire your work… and then notice that you don’t have to try nearly as much to keep yourself in midair. The gravity’s substantially decreased over here. Station might be having power flow issues.

Turning your attention back to Vegeta and Baby, you place your fingers on your forehead, locking on to Baby’s Ki. Got ‘em! You teleport near Baby as he yells out, “HELL THUNDER!” Swinging his arms forward, a black and green slash of energy is flung towards Vegeta, the giant monkey letting out a beam from his mouth to counter it.

“HYAH!” You thwack Baby in the back of the head with your Power Pole, causing him to stop his attack and turn his attention to you.

“SON PEPPA!” His aura surges around him. His barrier reappears, then condenses around his body. “Every time! EVERY TIME! Every SINGLE time things start to finally happen as they’re supposed to, YOU appear to stall it! You’re so damn intent on denying your destiny, destiny as Tuffle royalty! I AM YOUR KING! YOUR EMPEROR! YOUR -GOD-!”

“You’re NONE of those things! You’re a parasite with delusions of grandeur!”

>A. All out, once more! Limit Breaker!
>B. Vegeta, I need you to break that barrier!
>C. Ki Mines! Set some all around the place and force Baby into them!
>D. DRILL THROUGH THAT BARRIER!
>E. Something else?

You form a Ki Drill once more. “So, you gonna actually do anything, or just hide behind that barrier all day?! Come on, show me you’ve got some actual skills, Baby!” Leaping at him, you thrust forward and try to break through the barrier, Baby dodging and chuckling at you.

“If you think I can do better with you, then by all means… LET ME IN!” He slams his leg into your gut, barrier amplifying the force of the attack and almost knocking the wind out of you, then his fist rams into your face, then grabbing your extra long hair and swinging you around, right into a more jagged part of the wrecked station.

Skirting to a stop, you avoid getting skewered, but have to use Instant Transmission to avoid a flurry of pink Ki blasts that travel right down to you. Your Drill narrowly misses him again, but you fly off to avoid getting grabbed again. Vegeta’s massive hands grapple around Baby’s body, starting to squeeze around his barrier. You then see him build up Ki in his hands. “LET’S SEE YOU SURVIVE THIS ONE!”

Baby’s head… turns 180 degrees. “All right. YAAAH!” Beams shoot out from his eyes and right into Vegeta’s, causing him to let go and howl in pain as he’s temporarily blinded. Baby then flies around and grabs Vegeta’s tail, swinging him around and smashing him through parts of the station, finally letting go and kicking Vegeta down the hole he made with his Helix Galick Gun.

But you finally see your opening, teleporting below Baby and thrusting upward with your Ki Drill, it crashing into his barrier. “DODGE THIS!” Yelling out with all your might, you thrust forward and keep pushing, Baby trying to push his barrier out, only for it to fail to move you back. The two of you start boring through the station, higher and higher, until you break through a larger area that looks a bit like some kind of command center or lab. “RRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!”

Bit by bit it pushes closer to Baby’s body, until finally… the barrier breaks, shattering. Your Drill digs into Baby’s flesh, but before you can punch through he gets out of the way. “RGH… I’m going to have to have Bulma up the juice for it. Use all stored up Ki! I refuse to let it all end here, when I’m so close to-!”

“No.” Bulma’s voice calls to him. The two of you look in her direction. Mom by her side, Bulma glares down Baby. Pissed. Her hand slams onto a button near, low warning sirens going off. “You’re not getting it back. Oh, and as a little parting gift? I managed to get my other little present ready for you.”

“Giru, Giru!” the little robot floats by both women, looking… surprisingly more blue than before. And is that a Capsule Corp. badge on him? “I believe the saying goes… ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US.”

“WHAT?! YOU-?!”

“Nanomachine purge has been activated. Think of it like an… antivirus to your little pains in our collective asses. I don’t think this place will last that long without them… so…” Bulma flips him off. “Burn in hell, Baby!” Mom grabs both her and Giru and teleports away, Baby screaming in anger and firing a pink Ki blast in their direction.

“NO… NO! NOOOOO!”

You notice that terminals start to spark around the lab, power flickering, even the gravity starting to feel lighter. Baby stomps his feet, frothing with rage… but his power doesn’t decrease. It might have gotten the nanomachines in the fortress, but his seem protected… probably by that body he’s in.

>A. Give him hell! Limit Breaker, full power! Unleash everything to wipe him out for good!
>B. Baby. You’ve lost. And you’re going down with the station. Bye!
>C. Collect Vegeta, grab him before it starts to break apart!
