Not all chaotic events had to happen at the main branch of the Heroes’ Hideout. In fact, several taverns that scattered in the city of Belcazzar that had their own stories of madness, even if it was not on the same level that Bogus had to go through.

Still, who would had thought that one particular tavern would be hosting the leader of an army that is trying to cause an eternal darkness? OR the fact that said leader was waiting impatiently for a casual visit.

Necross nervously put his hands behind his back as he paced up and down in front of the entrance of the tavern restlessly. Maxie, Requiem, Ripper and Walter watched him go from left or right while sitting on one of the outdoor benches.. The former had a bored look on her face.

“Hey, hubby? Don’t take this the wrong way, I mean I don’t mind.” Maxie piped up. “But I am pretty sure that the staff would not like you creating a hole in front of the tavern.”

Necross growled before glaring at his “wife”. “Well, I am glad that somebody is keeping calm.”

Maxie chuckled at Necross’ reaction. “Well, SOMEBODY has to.”

“I’m with Maxie on this one.” Walter said, after making sure that nobody was watching and listening. “I mean you are a leader of an army. I think you could handle one meeting.”

Necross shook his head. “No… This is more than just a meeting.”

“How? I thought Oswald had told those angels about the truce.” Ripper asked, confused while tilting his head.

“No, no, no, Ripper.” Necross scolded. “This isn’t about getting Sylvia or going against the angels. This is to be friends with Oswald.”

Maxie gave an unimpressed look. “Hubby. You threatened, insulted, mentally AND physically attacked him and even after everything you put him through, he STILL want to help you reunite with Sylvia. I think you are in the clear.”

Necross winced when he reminded what happened after he had found out that Oswald knew the angels and tried to get the truth of Shane’s location out of him by any way possible.

“That is EXACTLY why I want this to go without a hitch…” He said before looking to the side. “I had treated Oswald horribly and I want to make it up to him by giving him the respect and kindness that he deserves.”

He then glared at his “family”.

“In other words, I want all of you on your best behavior. Even if Oswald says otherwise, I am extremely lucky that he wants to give me the time of day.” He said, pointing a finger.

“Hey, I don’t really have a problem with the kid.” Maxie said with a shrug. She then scowled. “It’s his sister, I have a problem with.”

Necross nodded his head. “Indeed. At least Oswald is visiting us alone.”

Ripper and Requiem both stayed silent while looking at each other, not looking sure about the whole thing.

“Father, I understand that I will sound repetitive by now but I STILL think you are being naive.” Requiem said.

“Yeah, you were the one who told me angels are horrible people and now you are actually going to trust them?” Ripper asked in disbelief.

“In fact, how could you even trust Oswald?” Requiem asked. “Even if there is a chance that he will be loyal to us, it is a fifty-fifty gamble.”

“Yeah, he is with the angels!” Ripper said, angrily pumping his fists in the air. “He can’t be trusted at all!”

Necross frowned at the young-looking demons’ negative reactions but at the same time, wasn’t too surprised. While still keeping her stoic disposition, Requiem would ironically be the most vocal about his decision to give the angels one last chance. After all, it was her who recruited Necross to be a part of the army in the first place.

As for Ripper, it was Necross who taught him everything he knew about angels. In other words, about how they were a bunch of self-righteous bastards. So if Ripper gave Oswald a hard time over being an ally of an angel, it would technically Necross’ fault for his behaviour.

Then again, he couldn’t really blame either of them for their skeptical behaviour. In fact, even he was wondering if he was making the right choice. He loved Sylvia but was he just setting himself up for another betrayal from heaven?

He then shook his head. He wasn’t meeting with an angel, he was meeting with a neutral party.

Necross explained. “Look, I am willing to accept that I may be doing a foolish mistake by trusting the angels but don’t attack Oswald. He had more than enough trouble as it was!”

Requiem and Ripper crossed their arms, still not looking happy about the whole thing.

“Now I expect you to be on your best behaviour.” Necross said sternly. “BOTH of you.”

“...Yes, daddy.” Ripper pouted.

“...Agreed, father.” Requiem said.

Necross gave a sigh of both relief and exasperation. Figures that the one time that they both agreed on something was to not want to do anything to do with Oswald. He also had to watch out for Maxie. She may not have anything against the artificial god but she could easily inadvertently upset the poor child.

Why did the only friendly and well-mannered one here had to be the pet who can’t talk?

Unknown to the group, the child in question, Oswald was slowly making his way over to them. However, they were so busy with each other had they had failed to see the artificial god coming.

Despite seeing the small dispute, Oswald gave a small smile.

“It’s only a natural response… I suppose it would be for the best that I approach now before any more arguing.” He said before walking over and making himself known. “Mr. Ross, I see why you requested I come on time rather than earlier.”

The five turned their heads to see Oswald and his pupils quickly shrank to the size of peas. How long had he been standing there?

“Oh, Oswald!” Necross said, feeling like an idiot. “I-I’m so sorry! I didn’t even know you were here!”

“It’s fine, I just arrived is all.” The child said, shaking his head “You wanted for me to come today?”

“Anyway, yes.” Necross said before putting his fist to his mouth to clear his throat. “Oswald, there is no easy way to say this but to say that you and I had started off on the wrong foot was an understatement.”

Oswald paused, remembering what had happened but again shook his head. “Mr. Ross, I have already told you, while your methods were extreme, I could tell that you were only trying to find your friend.”

The disguised demon chuckled weakly as he scratched the back of his head.

“...You know, kid.” Maxie said, flatly. “Easily forgiving him is just going to make him MORE upset for hurting you. In other words, your goody-goody personality would do more harm than good.”

Oswald paused while Necross glared at Maxie while gritting his teeth.

“I believe you remembered my loving wife, Maxine.” Necross muttered.

“Ah, of course.” Oswald smiled. “It is nice to meet you again, Miss Maxine.”

“Sup.” The pink-haired woman said, giving a two-finger salute.

“And these are our children, Hope and Jacky.” Necross said, motioning to his “children”.

Said children crossed their arms while not looking pleased.

“Hello, Miss Hope and Mr. Jacky.” Oswald said before bowing his head. “It is a pleasure to meet you.”

Said children didn’t even move one inch.

Necross chuckled nervously before talking in a stern voice to his children. “Children, don’t be rude. Say hello.”

Ripper gave a small growl. “Hi…”

“Hello…” Requiem said.

Oswald paused, easily seeing that he was not well-received by the children. Nonetheless, he wanted to make a good first impression, especially since Necross was looking so desperate to make up for their last meeting.

“Even though that you are much older than me, I would like to spend time with people my own age.” Oswald smiled.

“While I admit that it is not that large, the gap between our ages are not that small either.” Requiem retorted.

“Yeah!” Ripper agreed. “We are big kids! We don’t hang around with little kids!”

Oswald’s smile vanished. “Oh, I am sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you.”

Necross winced before glaring at Requiem and Ripper. The meeting barely started and already Oswald was feeling uncomfortable. Even if Maxie was right and Oswald would just smile off the two’s hostility, he still wanted to make for what happened.

Suddenly, his gaze had locked onto Walter, sitting on Maxie’s shoulder while watching the children, looking just as exasperated at Necross. His eyes immediately lit up. Acting quickly, he grabbed the bat, startling him and rushed over to Oswald before shoving him in front of his face.

“Oswald, please meet Wallabee!” Necross said, quickly.

Despite startled, the child merely smiled and nodded his head. “Pleased to meet you, Mr. Wallabee.”

The bat smiled before bowing his head politely. “The feeling is more than mutual, Master Oswald.”

Ripper’s eyes bugged out before leaping onto his feet. “Hey! Hey! Hey! What are you doing!? You are not supposed to talk!”

Walter turned his head towards the blue-haired demon. “It is alright. Nobody else is looking or listening in on us.”

“Dude, I think he was talking about Oswald…” Maxie said, flatly.

“Exactly!” Ripper said, swinging his arms in the air in anger.

“Jacky, it is alright. Oswald could sense that we are demons anyway so there is no reason to keep it a secret from him.” Necross reassured.

“Exactly. Please do not fear, Mr. Jacky.” Oswald nodded. “I could understand why you felt the need to hide your demonic heritage. I promise to keep your secret to the grave.”

Walter gave a small smile. “Well, I must say that I could see why Necross spoke so highly on you. You are quite well-mannered and well-spoken young man.”

“Why, thank you. Your manner of speaking is just as approachable.” Oswald said.

Necross let out a sigh before giving a small smile. It may not be perfect but this was a decent start.

“So Oswald, shall we get seated?” Necross asked.

“Yes, please.” The artificial god nodded.

With that, Necross and Oswald had went to sit down. Needless to say, Oswald chose to sit away from Requiem and Ripper, at least until they would feel more comfortable around him.

“So, what shall we talk about?” Oswald smiled.

Necross paused. “Well, anything you want to know about us, really.”

Oswald paused for a moment when he said this.

“Now Mr. Ross, I know you felt like you owe me but that does not mean I should know all of your secrets.” The artificial god explained.

“Then butt out.” Ripper spat.

“Jacky!” Necross scolded before looking at Oswald. “What is it, Oswald?”

The artificial god then took a deep breath before asking his question.

“Who is Sylvia?”

Ripper, Maxie and Walter’s eyes widened at this question, knowing much this was sensitive to the subject about Sylvia.

Necross on the other hand, merely sighed. “Might as well get the obvious out of the way but Sylvia is someone who is very close to me.”

Oswald just nodded his head.

“She is…” Necross said.

He then paused. How exactly should he tell Oswald about Sylvia? After all, from the eyes of Oswald, Maxie was his wife so naturally he cannot talk too much about Sylvia. After all, he didn’t wanted Oswald to think that he was cheating on Maxie as strange as it seemed.

Suddenly, his eyes lit up in realization.

“Say, Hope, Jacky, had I ever told you children about the time when Sylvia and I had first met?” Necross asked.

Everyone paused when they heard this. Indeed, they had heard Necross talk about how much he treasured Sylvia but never actually heard any stories about the couple, let alone how they first met.

“N-No…” Ripper said, shaking his head. “You didn’t.”

“Well, I think it is high-time I tell all of you.” Necross said before giving a small smile. “It happened all of the way a long, long time ago.”


Necross started to tell the tale about how he was in his late teens. He was a freshman at a college. At the time, he was nothing more than your everyday student who was studying vigorously and occasionally having a bit of fun.

He even recalled how he used to be a young man who went by his birth name, Ross. He smiled as he walked down outside of the building while carrying a book in his hand. Several orange and brown leaves dropped from the various trees scattered around. He hummed a jovial theme as he made his way to his next class.

However, he had then froze when he saw something on the side of the path. This caused him to raise an eyebrow in intrigued.

A bunch of pumpkins were laid in a group on the side. However, they had carved out holes in them, making them look like they had eyes and a smile.

“Heh. I almost forget that it was Halloween.”

He merely shrugged it off before making his way to class. He wasn’t that big of a fan of Halloween. Not that he disliked it but when he compared it to other holidays, it wasn’t that special. Unlike events like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, all you give on that day was candy to a bunch of kids in costumes. There wasn’t any heartwarming moments to it. In fact, for most of the students, they wanted to cause mischief for everyone else.

He shook his head as he walked over to his next class. However, he had seen something else that had made him freeze in his spot once again.

However, instead a bunch of faced pumpkins, he instead saw a woman with long, white hair that was about the same age as him entering a building. But what had really caught his attention was that said building was some kind of storage shed. Said shed seemed very worn out though and it didn’t looked like it had been used for quite a long time.

And yet it didn’t stopped her from entering the shed, regardless. Ross raised an eyebrow at this. Maybe it was just of how it looked on the outside but there didn’t seemed to be anything worthy of fetching from that old shed.

While curious, he just shrugged it off. He had a lesson to get to and he wasn’t going to play hooky just because he wants to know. So ignoring the woman entering the shed, he continued onto his way to his next class.

It didn’t took him long to enter his class which was already full of students that were being seated down in their chairs. It didn’t took him long to find a seat that was not only empty but right next to someone he knew very well. It was a young man that was a bit older than him with short brown hair. His attire was quite simple with a white button-up shirt underneath a brown vest with blue pants and brown shoes.

He smiled before making his way over.

“Oh, hey, Andrew!” He said, getting the man’s attention.

“Ah, Ross!” The man said with a smile. “How are you doing this morning?”

“Just fine.” Ross reassured. “And you?”

“Eh. Could be better…” Andrew muttered. “My stupid roommate woke me up at two o’clock when he barged in drunk like a fish.”

Ross’ eyes widened at this.. “What? That is late even for him!”

“You are telling me! Apparently, they had gone drinking AFTER going around and vandalizing people’s cars off-canvas!” Andrew said, rolling his eyes.

“Seriously?” Ross said in disgust.

“Yeah. He had slept ten minutes gloating about it before going to sleep.” Andrew said. “I swear, sometimes I think Halloween is invited so punks get this weird idea that they could do anything they want.”

Ross shook his head in distaste at what he had just been told.

“But anyway, want to meet up for lunch in the courtyard?” Andrew asked. “After last night, I could really stand to talk to someone with a decent amount of brain cells.”

Ross chuckled at this. “Oh, don’t you worry. I would be more than glad to join you.”

Andrew gave a small smile. “Thanks, man.”

“Good morning, class.”

The two young men turned their heads to the direction of the voice to see a woman with glasses, stepping in while holding a book.

“Nice to see each and every one of you is so lively.” The woman smiled. “Now then. Shall we continued off with where we left off.”

Almost everyone in the class readied all of their stuff for their next lesson. Learning doesn’t stop, no matter what time of year it was.


College lessons were never easy for anyone so after several hours of learning, all of the students were more than happy to get out of their classroom and have a nice, long lunch break.

Ross let out a sigh of relief as he sat on a bench on campus, waiting for Andrew. He was just pleased that he didn’t had to do a full day of lessons today or else he would pass out from the stress.

As he continued to wait, he raised his head to look around at the area that he was in as he watched several students walk past. Suddenly, his eyes widened when he noticed something.

The same woman with long, white hair was making her way over to the shed, just like she had done earlier. When he first saw her, he just stared for a few minutes before shrugging it off but to have the same thing happen in just a few hours can’t be just kind of coincidence. What exactly was the woman doing?

“Hey, Ross!”

The man’s eyes widened before turning his head to see Andrew rushing over while waving his hand at him.

Ross immediately smiled. “Ah, Andrew, there you are.”

“Sorry, been waiting long.” Andrew apologized, scratching the back of his head.

Ross merely shook his head. “It’s fine.”

“Well, shall we be off?” Andrew offered.

Ross happily nodded as he got up from the bench. The two then started to go their way towards the cafeteria. However, Ross couldn’t help but think about what he had just saw.

“Oh, before we go, can I ask you something?” Ross piped up.

Andrew turned around and looked at his friend. “Sure, what is it?”

Ross nervously grabbed his wrist before pointing to the side. “Listen, do you happen to know what exactly is in that shed over there?”

Andrew raised an eyebrow before looking at said old shed.

“Oh, that thing? Never. Just a bunch of old empty crates and such. There is absolutely nothing of value in…” He explained.

Suddenly, his eyes widened in realization as he froze in his spot. Ross immediately caught on.

“Andrew…?” Ross asked, concerned.

Andrew then slumped his arms with an exasperated look on his face. “Let me guess. You saw an Albino woman entering that shed, right?

“Huh, um, yeah. I mean I didn’t exactly seen that much of her but her hair was definitely white.” Ross agreed.

“Well, there had been this rumor that had been flying around now. Apparently, that woman had been sneaking into that shed whenever chance she gets.” Andrew pointed out. “But here is the strange part.”

Ross leaned in closer. “Yes?”

“Apparently, when people try to eavesdrop on her whether on purpose or by accident, they could had sworn that they heard TWO people talking in there.” Andrew explained. “However, whenever someone comes in, they only see said girl.”

“Really?” Ross’ eyes widened.

“Yeah, spooky, isn’t it?” Andrew said before looking at the shed. “After all, there is only one way out and there are only so many places you could hide in there.”

Ross paused. “Maybe she is a ventriloquist?”

“Perhaps. But whatever she is doing in there, she is very defensive when confronted about it.” Andrew explained. “It is that attitude where the rumors get ridiculous.”

“How so?” Ross questioned.

“Well, there were reasonable ones like your ventriloquist idea and some other ideas like she got schizophrenia or she is talking to the spiders in there.” Andrew said. He then rolled his eyes. “Then there are the ones where she is talking to ghosts.”

Ross’ eyes widened at this. “Talking to ghosts?”

“Yeah, silly, isn’t it? And to make things worse, this stupid rumor is getting cemented seeing that Halloween is coming around the corner.” Andrew agreed.

Ross shook his head. “Silly is right. This is the type of rumors you hear in grade school.”

“Exactly!” Andrew agreed. “But whatever. That is not our problem, right?”

Ross paused for a moment. He then nodded. “Agreed.”

“Good. Now let’s go.” Andrew smiled before walking on ahead. “We need something to take my mind off of work besides stupid rumors.

Ross again nodded his head before following his friend to the cafeteria. Though in the back of his mind, he couldn’t help but still be curious about that woman. While it was none of his business, he still wanted to know what in the world she was doing in there.


The rest of the day had pretty much went just like any other normal day at college. A lot of hard subjects that the students had to learn. A lot of people were having it easier than others but they could all agree on how much long the lessons were.

Soon, it was almost time for the final lesson to end. All they needed to leave was the professor’s permission to leave for the day. Said professor picked up her book and tapped it against her desk a couple of times.

“Alright, class. That is enough for today. Remember what I had taught you.” The professor explained. “Until then, you may go.”

The students nodded their heads before gathering their stuff and getting up from their seats to leave the classroom. Ross was about to do the same thing until a large student that he was sitting next to bumped into and made him drop his stuff on the ground.

The large student looked back. “Whoops. Sorry.”

Despite his apology, he had gone on ahead and made his way towards the exit as if nothing had happened. Ross narrowed his eyes.

“No, don’t you worry yourself. I could pick up these things myself.” Ross muttered, underneath his breath.

While annoyed by the large student’s lack of sympathy, he merely tried to forget it as he crouched down and picked up the items that were on the ground. When he had got up, everyone else were nearly coming back out of the room. Ross was about to join them until the professor’s voice stopped him.

“Oh, wait! Sylvia! Sylvia?”

Ross’ eyes widened before looking towards the professor who was holding a letter in her hand with an upset look on her face.

“Is something wrong, Professor?” Ross asked.

“Sylvia had left already.” The professor frowned.

Ross raised an eyebrow. “Um, Sylvia?”

The professor’s eyes widened at this. “Wait, are you saying that you don’t know Sylvia?”

“Um, well, yes and no.” Ross said, scratching the back of his head. “I mean I knew that she was in this class but I had never noticed her at all.”

The professor shook her head in disbelief. “Honestly, I knew that she was introverted but still… Look, she is an Albino young woman with long hair. You can’t miss her.”

Ross’ eyes widened when he had heard this. While there were not too many people with Albinism, this couldn’t had been the same woman that he was talking, could it?

“Listen, if you don’t mind, could you deliver this letter to her?” The professor asked, offering the envelope. “I had just remembered about it by the time Sylvia had already left.”

“Um, sure, I mean I don’t have that much plans anyway.” Ross said before taking the envelope. “Don’t worry. I shall deliver it to her.”

“Thank you, Ross.” The professor said with a sigh of relief. “I would had done so myself but I had to so much to do.”

The young man shook his head. “It is alright. I am fine with that.”

After exchanging goodbyes with the professor, Ross had left the building while inspecting the letter that was in his hand. He didn’t really cared about the contents of the letter. But rather the person he was delivering it to. Whoever Sylvia was must had liked solitude so he didn’t knew how to approach him.

Especially since she was most likely going towards THAT place. If she had already gone to her shed, he probably would never find the right thing to say because of the situation.

So he decided to jog through the outside while passing through several people in hopes of getting to Sylvia in time. Much of his relief, it only took him a few minutes to find Sylvia, walking by herself. As if he was expecting anything else, she was heading straight the shed.

“Sylvia!” Ross called out.

The white-haired woman’s eyes widened before turning her head to see Ross making his way over. Just as Ross expected, she had pale skin and red eyes to go along with her white hair.

“Oh, you are that Ross guy, right?” Sylvia said.

The young man winced a bit at the fact that she knew who he was and yet it wasn’t mutual. “Um, yes.”

“What is it?” Sylvia said with a stern glare.

Ross shrank back at the unfriendly face. “Um, the professor asked me to bring you this.”

Sylvia raised an eyebrow as Ross handed her the letter. The white-haired woman slowly took the letter and inspected it.

“Oh, this? Yes. I had nearly forget about this.” Sylvia said, taking the letter. “Thank you.”

“No problem.” Ross said.

The two then shared an awkward silence with each other. Ross nervously shifted his eyes from left and right.


Ross looked down at Sylvia. “Huh?”

“Are you going to say anything else?” The Albino woman asked.

“Huh? Um, no.” Ross insisted. “That is all, really!”

“Good.” Sylvia spat.

With that, she turned around and walked off. Ross watched her leave before narrowing his eyes at the woman’s unfriendly attitude. What was her problem anyway? Shaking his head, he was about to walk off to go do his own thing before casting one final glare.

However, he had quickly noticed something was off as Sylvia was heading towards the shed. Two young men were standing next to the side of the shed. One of them was holding a camera. Sylvia was so busy looking at her envelope to notice them and she made her way over to the ghost and turned the knob before walking inside.

The three men then smirked before peeking inside of the window.

“Okay, I don’t think she saw her. Ready the camera.” One man said.

“Well, you don’t have to tell me twice.” The man with the camera sneered as he peeked inside through the window.

Ross’ eyes widened when he saw this. These people were spying on the poor woman. He then narrowed his eyes while gritting his teeth in anger. His parents had always thought him that invading a woman’s privacy was one of the worst things a man could do to a woman. Even though Sylvia seemed moody and unfriendly, he was going to let something like this go.

“Hey! What do you morons think you are doing!?” Ross roared, getting the two men’s attention.

“H-Hey! Shut up, you idiot! They’ll hear us!” One man scolded.

“I’m the idiot!? You do realize that I could have you two in big trouble for what you are trying to do!” Ross scolded.

The two men jumped when they realized that Ross was right. Spying on another student, especially a female would have strong consequences. However, they decided to keep their ground.

“Hey, come on, man!” The man with the camera. “If you keep it up…”

“What is going on out here!?”

The two men’s eyes widened as the door to the abandoned shed opened up to reveal an annoyed Sylvia. She looked around for a moment to see the two men hiding next to the shed. Said men winced as they gave sheepish grins. Sylvia’s eyes widened before narrowing them.

“And what do you think you are doing?” Sylvia said with a dark glare on her face.

“Um, taking pictures?” The man with the camera said.

“So I see.” Sylvia said, crossing her arms with an unimpressed look on her face. “Now get away from here.”

The two men winced before glaring at Ross who merely returned the stare.

“Thanks a lot, snitch.” The one with the camera spat as the two sulked off.

“No problem.” Ross said, crossing his arms.

He and Sylvia glared at the two men walking off. Once they were a good distance away, Sylvia let out a deep sigh as she held her head.

“Ugh, what am I going to do?” She groaned. “I can’t keep this up at this rate these imbeciles.”

She then turned her head to see Ross standing quite a few feet away.

“Hey, did you blew the whistle on those two idiots?” Sylvia called out.

“Yes.” Ross said before walking over.

Sylvia paused. “Why?”

Ross looked confused. “Come again?”

“Why did you stopped them?” Sylvia asked, raising her head.

Ross paused, still puzzled by the question. “Well, I just thought that it was wrong for those guys to spy on a woman.”

Sylvia paused before looking down for a moment. “Oh, I see… Thank you for that.”

“It’s alright.” Ross said, shaking his head.

Sylvia paused for a moment as if looking in thought. Ross stayed silent, wondering what was going on. Soon, his confusion turned into concern.

“Hey, are you sure that you are alright?” Ross asked.

Sylvia continued to stay quiet for a moment. She then let out a deep sigh.

“I suppose that some more help may be needed.” She muttered.

“Hm?” Ross asked, raising an eyebrow.

Sylvia shook her head. “Listen, could you do me a favor?”

“Um, it depends but sure.” Ross said.

Sylvia looked down for a moment. She then looked back up with a look of determined look on her face.

“I will tell you. But not here.” She explained.

She then walked over to Ross who was not looking completely stumped by what was going on. Sylvia then whispered something in his ear.

“Please meet me at the shed at six o’clock.” Sylvia explained.

“H-Huh?” Ross asked, surprised.

“Do you have something planned by then?” Sylvia asked.

“N-No. I am free.” Ross reassured.

Sylvia nodded her head. “So is it alright if I see you there?”

“Um, sure. See you there, I guess?” Ross asked.

Sylvia again nodded her head before turning around and walking off back towards the shed. Ross blinked twice, trying to figure out what was happening. Was he actually going to find out about Sylvia’s secret? Even though they had just met for a few minutes? There was also the shift in personality. Granted, Ross had done a great deed in blowing the whistle on the spying duo but to be trusting?

Whatever the case, he had already agreed to meeting Sylvia at the allotted time. Perhaps he should go through with it. After all, he may not regret it. He then walked off to find some way to pass the time.


After hanging around campus for a couple of hours, it was almost time for Ross to meet Sylvia in front of the shed. Even though he agreed to see her, he was much more nervous about the whole situation than he first thought.

Mainly because of it was already getting dark. Not that he had any problems with going at night on his own but to enter an abandoned shed? It sounded like he was begging to be attacked.

He then shook his head. He was being as silly as everyone else. Sure, entering an abandoned shed at night may seemed scary but that was all it was. An abandoned shed. If it was truly dangerous, the staff would had banned students from entering it all, let alone on a daily basis.

Letting out a deep sigh, he made his way onto the campus. He looked around for a bit. The only people out were some people smoking. Then again, this was exactly why Sylvia had asked him to go at six o’clock.

It didn’t took him long to find Sylvia standing in front of the shed with her arms crossed. The white-haired woman saw him and stepped forward.

Ross gave a sheepish grin. “Um, hey, Sylvia. How is it going?”

“Just fine.” Sylvia said. “I am pleasantly surprised that you actually came.”

Ross scratched the back of his head. “Yeah, well. Like I said, I didn’t had anything else to do so here I am.”

Sylvia nodded her head before making her way forward. Ross fought the desire to step backwards, even though he found it much harder than he thought. Soon, Sylvia was right in front of Ross while staring into his eyes.

“I think you may had already figured it out for yourself but there is a reason why I had brought you here.” Sylvia said, softly.

Ross paused before nodding his head. “R-Right. You are… Actually going to tell me…”

Sylvia returned the nod. “That’s right. I am going to tell what exactly I had been doing why I am in the shed.”

Ross again stayed silent for a moment. “I knew it… Though I have to ask. Why?”

“Why?” Sylvia said before shrugging. “Out of desperation, really. Do you actually think I would go put in my full trust into someone over ONE good deed?”

Ross physically winced as he glared down at Sylvia. What was up with this woman?

“However, I needed SOMEONE to help me. As you could see, there had been a lot of rumors spreading about me and the more I get talked about, the more idiots like the ones from earlier would try to find out my secret.” Sylvia explained. “At first, I thought I could handle it but I underestimate the stupidity of some of these people…”

Ross again scratched the back of my head. “So, why have you decided to come to ME instead of one of your friends?”

Sylvia paused. “I don’t have any friends in this college.”

Ross’s face fell before looking to the side. “O-Oh… I am sorry.”

Sylvia shook her head. “No, it is fine. I wasn’t that much for socializing anyway. The lack of companions DOES hurt when you have a problem that you cannot do alone.”

Ross paused in thought.

“Ross, please, I really need your help. I could only do this by myself.” Sylvia said.

Ross stayed silent while thinking about what to do. Should he really trust this woman who he just known existed until today? What if she was doing something that was against the school rules? If he agrees to help and later gets caught, they would be in great trouble.

Still, if what Sylvia was saying was true, she had no one to look to. No friends that she could ask support from. She did admitted that she was desperate for help and she didn’t deserve having several people spy on her.

Ross let out a deep sigh. “Alright, I will help you.”

Sylvia gave a small smile. “Thank you, Ross… I am really in a predicament right now.”

Ross looked up. “I-It’s fine. Though I could really know what exactly ARE you hiding in there.”

Sylvia’s smile vanished. “Ross, I know that this is more than a bit too much to ask but you have to promise me no matter what, you will not make any loud noises of any kind.”

Ross shrank back when he heard this. That was not a good sign. “Um, alright.”

Sylvia nodded her head. “Good. Now brace yourself.”

With that, she turned around and made her way over to the shed’s door. For Ross, the flow of time had slowed down immensely as Sylvia put her hand on the knob and turned it slowly. He could feel his heart beating rapidly inside of his chest. Finally, Sylvia had opened the door before looking back at Ross.

“Well, if you would.” Sylvia urged.

Ross took in a deep gulp before gathering his courage and making his way over to the shed. As if he had expected anything else, it was completely dark inside, save for the slight light shining in from a nearby streetlight. Ross continued to slowly entered the shed and looked around.

There, they didn’t seemed to be anything out of the ordinary. Just a bunch of boxes that were covered with dust. Meanwhile, Sylvia looked around for a few moments to see if anyone was looking. She then slowly closed it but not all of the way so that Ross could have a bit of light.

“Alright, the coast is clear.” Sylvia said.

At first, Ross thought she was talking to him. But then something happened that made all of the colour from his skin drain.

A large blue pulsing aura had appeared out of nowhere, leaving a dim glow that was more than enough to illuminate the shed. Said aura surrounded a person. However, said person was pale blue from top of bottom. She seemed to be a young woman that was around the same age as him with a nervous complexion. Because of her pale blue complexion, she could make out too much about the clothes she was wearing but could easily notice her glasses and her tail pigtails.

Ross took a step back while looking in absolute shock. He was standing front of a ghost. One of the rumors that Andrew had told him was true.

“Ross, this is Alma.” Sylvia said, softly. “Alma, this is Ross, the boy I was telling you about.”

The bespectacled ghost narrowed her eyes. “...Hey.”

“U-U-Um, hey.” Ross said, sheepishly.

“Ross, don’t be rude.” Sylvia scolded, narrowing her eyes. “Speak properly.”

”How is she expected for me to speak properly to something I always thought never existed!?” Ross said in disbelief.

“Forget about it, Sylvia. This pussy is wetting his pants at the sight of me. I knew that we couldn’t trust him!” Alma spat.

Ross glared at Alma while Sylvia shook her head.

“Alma, we talked about this. We can’t continue on our own. We need help!” Sylvia insisted.

“So? And what makes you think HE could help?” Alma challenged.

“I don’t know yet.” Sylvia explained. “But for now, let’s worry about us three working together.”

Alma growled before casting Ross a death glare. The latter stepped back a couple of steps. Sylvia shook her head a few times.

“Anyway, while this goes around saying but this is Alma and as you could plainly see, she is a ghost.” Sylvia explained. “She had been on campus for longer than she could even remember.”

Ross slowly nodded his head. “I-I am pleased to meet you, I guess…”

“Oh, I just LOVE the enthusiasm.” Alma spat.

Sylvia narrowed her eyes. “And like you are one to talk.”

Alma merely scoffed. “Whatever…”

“Anyway, I had only managed to catch her by accident. After a bit of talking, we became friends and started to hang out with each other.” Sylvia explained. “Of course, because of her being a ghost, we can’t go talk in public without causing a fuss.”

“I-I could imagine…” Ross said.

Sylvia then let out a deep sigh. “Of course we had been talking inside of this shed. However, as you could see our conversations had caught the attention of some very nosy people.”

“I STILL think you should had let me break their legs. I mean it is not like I would get caught.” Alma spat.

Sylvia shook her head. “Crippling them isn’t going to stop the rumors from flying around.”

Alma scoffed. “Well, it would stop them from approaching the shed.”

Ross shrank back. As if being a ghost was as spooky as he initially thought but Alma seemed quite violent.

“Look, Alma, please give Ross a chance.” Sylvia reassured. “We need all of the help we could get.”

The ghost rolled her eyes. “Pfft. Whatever… But listen here and listen good. I couldn’t care less if you rat ME out but if you cause Sylvia any trouble and I will haunt you for the rest of your life. I got all the time in the world.”

Ross’ eyes widened as he stepped back until he backed up against the wall. Sylvia narrowed her eyes at Alma.

“Alma, I am going to talk to Ross alone, alright.” Sylvia spat.

The ghost scoffed as she rolled her eyes. “Fine.”

Sylvia nodded her head as she grabbed Ross’ hand and gently guided the poor man out of the shed where she closed it behind them.

“I am sorry about her, Ross. She absolutely can’t stand people.” Sylvia reassured. “You can be surprised how long until she warmed up to her.”

“I-I see…” The brown-haired man said.

“Listen, believe me when I say this but despite you won’t let you show it, Alma is actually a very lonely girl.” Sylvia said. “She literally doesn’t have anyone to talk.”

Ross paused when he realizes that what Sylvia was true.

“She says that she doesn’t have anywhere to go so she decided to stay here.” Sylvia continued.

“But why? Why this college?” Ross asked.

Sylvia paused before looking down. “I am sorry, Ross. But I am not content with telling you. At least not without her permission first.”

Ross stayed silent “I-I guess… S-So the main goal is to try to hide Alma, right?”

“Right.” Sylvia nodded. “We need to find a new place to take her.”

“Makes sense…” Ross said.

Sylvia paused for a moment with blinking eyes. “I must say that you are impressing me.”

Ross blinked twice. “W-What do you mean?”

“Well… You are handling this much better than I thought you would.” Sylvia explained.

”That is more because I was too stunned to react.” Ross thought before sighing. “W-Well, I can’t say that I am completely composed.”

“Still, you are doing much better than I thought.” Sylvia offered.

She then gave a small smile.

“You have no idea how much this brings me to.” Sylvia thanked. “Alma may think otherwise but someday, she will just be as grateful to you.”

Ross looked into Sylvia’s face for a moment. He only met her for a short time but he never thought that she could seemed to be happy. Even though she admitted that she was desperate to trust a complete stranger, she was still grateful to him. As unfriendly as the Alma woman was, perhaps he should give them the benefit of the doubt.

Ross let out a deep sigh before giving a small smile. “Don’t worry, Sylvia. I promise that I will find you and Alma…”

With that, he reached out his hand in form of a handshake. As if Sylvia stepped back as if she had never seen a handshake before. She stared at the hand for a couple of moments. She then slowly accepted it. The two then stared into each other’s eyes as the evening moon shined down on them.


“...And that is the story of how I first met Sylvia.”

With that, Necross let out a small sigh. Whether it was out of relief or sadness was anyone’s guess. Oswald was sitting up, hearing to every little detail of the story as Walter did the same. Maxie crossed her arms as she raised an eyebrow as Requiem stayed silent as always. Surprisingly, the person who looked the most eager was Ripper.

“Goodness, Mr. Ross. I could see why you feel so strongly about this Sylvia woman.” Oswald smiled.

“Indeed. She seemed like one-in-a-million.” Walter said, softly while whispering in Necross’ ear.

Necross let out a weak chuckle. “Yes, she was nothing like any other.”

Maxie on the other hand, shifted her eyes from left to right before leaning towards Requiem. “Um, am I the only one who expected Sylvia to be similar to a Disney princess?”

“No. Not to say that I am blaming you though.” The dark-haired woman said.

“Agreed.” Maxie nodded.

“Mr. Ross, thank you so much for sharing your story with me. It was quite fascinating.” Oswald smiled.

“No problem. Though it still felt somehow awkward though.” Necross said, scratching the back of his head.

Oswald tilted his head in confusion. “Awkward? How?”

“Oh, nothing. I mean everyone in my family knows how much I loved her but I had never explained in full-detail on our first meeting.” Necross said. “It feels… Nice.”

Oswald nodded his head. “Well, I believe that it is only fair to return the favour for answering my question. You may ask me any question about me.”

Ripper’s eyes widened before looking at Oswald. “What!? No! I want to listen to the rest of the story!”

Necross’ eyes widened before narrowing them. “Jacky!”

“What? There is more to the story?” Oswald asked before frowning. “Oh, I am so sorry, Mr. Ross. I knew fully well that your tale was from over but I thought you was leaving it off for today.”

Necross shook his head. “No, it is alright. Yes, there IS more to the story but I merely wanted to tell the opening.”

“Aww! But I want to know more about you! About Sylvia! About Alma!” Ripper whined.

Necross narrowed his eyes. “Look, Jacky, let’s make a deal. If you behave for the rest of the day, I will tell you the next part of my story, alright?”

The zombie-like young man paused for a moment before looking at Oswald. Even as simple-minded as him knew to fully behave, he had to be civil to the artificial god, even though he couldn’t trust him. But at the same time, he was really invested in the story.

Ripper let out a sigh of relief. “Yes, daddy…”

“Atta boy.” Necross said with a triumphant smile on his face.

“Whipped.” Requiem muttered as Maxie chuckled.

Ripper growled while glaring at his “sister” but actually tried his best to control his temper before glaring at Oswald.

“Alright, alright… What story are you going to next us?” Ripper muttered, not looking interested in the slightest.

“Depends, Mr. Jacky. What do you wish to know about me?” Oswald asked. “After all, Mr. Ross told me about his meeting with Sylvia when I specifically asked.”

“Well, in that case, how could you and that redhead sister of yours get along without attempting to kill each other?” Maxie piped up.

“Maxine!” Necross scolded.

“Oh, like I am the only one in this entire world who haven’t asked that question!” Maxie retorted.

“That doesn’t give you the right to be so crude about it!” Necross scolded.

“It is alright, Mr. Ross. Miss Maxine is right. Based on first-impressions, it would seem quite strange indeed for Ellen and me to be siblings.” Oswald said, shaking his head. “However, Ellen is…”

Necross shook his head as he watched Oswald start his story. Truth be told, he had felt a weight being lifted off of his shoulders. He couldn’t remember the last time he had told anyone about how he and Sylvia first met. It felt nice to tell somebody about the story.


The demon’s eyes widened before he looked around the area for a bit. Everyone was quick to notice this.

“Um, Mr. Ross, is something the matter?” Oswald asked.

The leader looked around at everyone. “None of you heard that.”

“Huh? Heard what?” Maxie asked, confused.

Necross paused before looking around a couple more times. After confirming that there was nobody but the people he was with, he turned his attention to the others.

“Oh, it is nothing. Please continue, Oswald.”
EA-LEC: A Ghost Of The Past
Here is my :iconea-lec: entry for this year's Halloween mission. This is also finally the entry where Oswald meets Necross' "family". In other words, I am killing two birds with one stone. I must say though, this entry was harder to do than I thought. I don't know. This isn't the first time I did a slice-of-life story, even if THIS one has a supernatural side to it.

For all of the non-EA-LEC members, the "theme" for this Halloween is having ghosts and seeing how characters would react to it. Thus Alma was created.

XP goes to Necross.

Necross, Requiem, Maxie, Walter, Ripper, Sylvia and Alma belongs to me.

My Super Mario Controversy Meme by Tinyhammer
My Super Mario Controversy Meme
I suddenly felt like doing a meme of some kind and when I saw that there was one for Super Mario, I knew that this could be the one for me. Here is the blank version by :iconcrystaliszelda:…

Favorite Character: Bowser I really wish that I could go in much detail about this guy but what you see is what you got. Whether he is a serious villain, comic relief or even an anti-hero, Bowser never fails to bring entertainment and awesomeness in every appearance he's in. :D

Despised Character: Pink Gold Peach Really, Nintendo? Really? Palette swaps are one thing but bringing a palette swap out of nowhere and have her playable over so many other deserving spots? Metal Mario, Gold Mario, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach had all appeared previously, where did Pink Gold Peach came from? And why Pink Gold and not Metal?

Favorite Game: Mario Party 7 I tend to the party game genres over others so naturally I loved the Mario Party series and every single game (Except for Advance). However, I seemed to had the most fun on the seventh game. I don't know. I just loved the mini-games, the fact that each board had a different objective, the across-the-world gimmick and so much more. And I think Neon Heights is one of my, if not THE favorite board in Mario Party history.

Despised Game: Mario's Time Machine Honestly, any of the educational games could fit in this spot. Look, I get it. You want to educate children and to do so, you slapped Mario's face on the game so it would appeal to them. Nothing wrong with that. Still, from what I had seen, most playthrough are more tedious than fun...  I don't know... Maybe it is because I am an adult. OR maybe I just don't hate a single Mario game... >__>

Overrated Character: The Baby Characters Why are these babies appearing in nearly every spin-off!? I mean it makes sense with Baby Mario, Luigi, Peach AND DK seeing that they had appeared in a game before but baby Daisy? And baby Rosalina? They didn't got baby forms for as long as I could remember. I mean sure they are cute but I find that they are a waste of a character slot.

Underrated Character: Daisy Aw, come on! She is an energetic, competitive, sports-loving tomboy! How come she haven't gotten a role outside of the spin-off games yet? I also liked how she is like the perfect foil for the prim and proper Peach. Besides, her specials from the various spin-offs should at least make a decent battle set-up.

Favorite Villain: Bowser I admit that this is a bit of a cheat. Especially since I actually prefer him as an anti-hero than a villain but hey, he IS the most recognizable villain in video games so why not?

Despised Villain: Fuzzies I swear these things are the bane of my gaming existence. Not only are they super-creepy but they are mostly invulnerable to being jumped on so good luck trying to get around these fast little pests. They are much better in Paper Mario where they not only got in groups but they could DRAIN YOUR HEALTH. And I always hating life-draining enemies. >__< And the less said about Fuzzy Time Mine from Super Mario 3D World, the better. :fear:

Favorite Couple: Luigi X Daisy I liked both of these characters so naturally I like the couple but it is actually cuter than it first appears due to the contrasting pair. The cowardly, nervous man gets paired up with the tomboyish, rough-housing woman. It makes up for a lot of interesting scenes because of their conflicting thoughts. Which is more than you could say for Mario & Peach.

Despised Couple: Mario X Luigi Look, I could understand why people hate certain couples. "They never met before!" "They have no chemistry!" "She could do better than him!" Me? I am more open-minded. But there is one thing that I cannot look the other way on and that is incest... I shouldn't have to explain in detail on why I find it interesting for two siblings to make out with each other...

Meme belongs to :iconcrystaliszelda:
After Marina and Pascal had finally managed to put out the fire, they immediately saw what had happened on the ground level. Acting quickly, they transported the men inside and used some of the shops’ healing items to cure their injuries.

Despite this being mostly fully healed, all six members felt horrible about what had happened. They were easily dispatched by one man. Sure, he was insanely powerful but he was still one man.

“Poor Mel…” Pascal frowned. “She must be terrified right now…”

“Yeah, being stuck with a ruthless psycho like him.” Samurai Bob frowned.

“I was too lenient with him.” Marina said, looking at her hand. “I should had gone for a headshot.”

Samurai Bob raised his head in shock. “Y-You don’t have to go THAT far!”

“Well, anyway, come on, we are all healed up for the most part right?” Pascal asked. “We have to go save Mel! I mean we ARE the All-Star Heroes.”

“I wonder about that.” The Wraith said.

Everyone looked at the Wraith when he said this.

“Huh? What does THAT mean?” Samurai Bob asked.

“Well, at least I actually thought that it was just me.” The Wraith said, crossing his arms. “But I was confused that we had all been chosen to the protectors of an entire WORLD after ONE act.”

“Yes, I admit that was rather strange too…” Samurai Bob noted.

“Well, here is what I was thinking. We may not actually the officially Elympios branch of the A.S.H.” The Wraith said.

Everyone looked shocked when they heard this.

“Wha… What are you saying?” Tetsuo asked.

“Yes, who else would be the official Elympios branch?” Samurai Bob added.

“I don’t know…” The Wraith said. “But that is what Cortez is trying to find out in the limited time he has with us “in charge”.”

Samurai Bob stepped back at this. “W-Wait, you are not saying that…”

The Wraith looked at Samurai Bob. “That’s right. We are put in charge of protecting this world just to calm everyone down until he could find a bunch of professionals to protect this world.”

Tetsuo’s pupils shrank when he heard this.

“That’s a lie!” Samurai Bob scolded, swinging his arm. “Admiral Cortez would never do something so underhanded!”

The Wraith merely cast his leader a strange look. “Never do something so underhanded? You only met him twice! And that was a holograph!”

“So he is the founder of the All-Star Heroes, thus the reason the universe is safe!” Samurai Bob retorted. “And I won’t stand to hear you slander such a great man!”

“Oh, if he is so great, why did he put US in charge because of ONE daring act!” The Wraith challenged.

“I…” Samurai Bob said.

“We are the decoy team, Samurai Bob.” The Wraith said, crossing his arms. “We are only here to give the world hope so that when Cortez finally DOES form a proper team, they would replace us in a flash.”

Everyone stared in Wraith after he had said his words. Tetsuo was the most thunderstruck when the theory. Was it all true? Was they really nothing but then a decoy to make sure that the people of Elympios could sleep at time.

He then looked down at his hands. He could still remember that horrible feeling that he had felt when fighting Barbatos. Despite all of his strength, he was absolutely helpless as he was easily dispatched by his enemy and could do nothing but let the person who they were supposed to be protecting get kidnapped. Was he really that weak? Was he nothing but then some kind of twisted warm-up act?

“Alright… I don’t want to admit it but I would be lying if I said that there isn’t logic in your words.” Samurai Bob said, looking down. “Being a part of the A.S.H. seems far too good to be true.”

The Wraith nodded his head.

“Though is it alright if I ask one question?”

The Wraith raised an eyebrow. “Depends but shoot.”

“Who cares?”

Everyone looked at Samurai Bob in surprise, only to see him with his eyes narrowed.

“C-Come again?” The Wraith asked in disbelief.

“It is just as I said. Who cares?”

The Wraith blinked twice in confusion. “Um, the last time I checked but most people don’t like being played as if they were going to be some grand hero but instead just going to be a decoy.”

“Even still, if Cortez DID do this to us, he did it to install hope into everyone.” Samurai Bob said, clenching his fist.

“...You have GOT to be kidding me.” The Wraith said in disbelief. “You are actually okay with becoming somebody’s opening act just to make a few people content?”

Samurai Bob paused for a moment. “One of the survivors of my home is a teenaged girl who had witnessed her friends die left and right. But I could make the atmosphere one where she could smile just like she did in Simsville, I could do so. She along with a few other people are counting on me to protect them and that is what I am going to do.”

Everyone looked in Samurai Bob with mixed reactions. Most of them were of course awe.

“Again, I don’t believe that Admiral Cortez would do something like that but if that is the case, I will accept my role of a decoy.” Samurai Bob said before looking to the side. “I… I guess want my friends to be able to live in peace…”

“Samurai Bob…” Tetsuo said, softly.

“Are you… Going to be this world’s Captain Superpop?”

“Tetsuo, you don’t know much how we are counting on you and the rest of the A.S.H.”

Tetsuo then narrowed his eyes.

“Yeah, that’s right! They are worried people everywhere!” Tetsuo piped up. “If we just quit, it would cause a lot of unneeded panic in the world!”

He then looked at the others.

“And besides, when I went to City Hall to help out with the fight, did I do it to be a part of the A.S.H.?” He asked. “NO! I did it to protect Trigleph! Did the rest of you fought just to be in the A.S.H.?”

“No, I did it to help!” Pascal said, clenching her fists.

“Breloom loom!” Panmusu agreed with narrowed eyes.

Marina crossed her arms. “I must admit, I didn’t wanted to live in a city that was run by someone who had power over the dark beings.”

The Wraith paused before sighing. “...And even I admit that I probably didn’t care less as long as I have some fun.”

Tetsuo actually ignored the Wraith’s comment. “Exactly! And instead of wasting our time here, we should be going after that creep and Mel!”

“Right. Mel saved my life and it is only fair that I should return the favor.” Samurai Bob said, narrowing his eyes.

“Wait though.” Marina said, holding up a hand. “I wouldn’t mind trying again but do we even KNOW where our enemy is headed.”

Samurai Bob paused in realization before putting his hand on his chin. “He said that he is going to kill Mel but Mel said herself that the armor that she is wearing could only taken off willingly by her.”

“So in other words, Barbatos is trying to find a way to do so.” Marina agreed.

Everyone then paused in thought for a moment, trying to find an answer to their riddle. Assuming Barbatos had average intelligence, how could he kill Mel knowing perfectly well that not even he could get passed her armor.

Suddenly, Pascal raised his head with a look of shock on her face.

“Uh-oh…” Pascal said in horror.

Everyone looked in her in confusion.

“What’s wrong? Do you think you found a weakness in Mel’s armor?” Pascal asked.

“Yeah and we may not have that much time!” The technician said before rushing off. “Come on! Hurry!”

Despite confused, everyone else nodded before following Pascal outside of the shop. Whenever Pascal was leading them, they could only hope that they were leading them to Barbatos and Mel. This time, they WILL save her.


It didn’t took long for the All-Star Heroes to find Barbatos. Or rather, it didn’t took them long to find his trail. There was a trail of destroyed cars and smashed walls making a filthy path. The others looked around as they continued to follow the strange set of bedcrumbs.

As they ran, Tetsuo looked around at all of the damage with his anger boiling up with each passing second. This man had shown no restraint and literally destroys anything that was in his way. He didn’t care how much he outmuscle him, he wasn’t going to let him get away with this.

Soon, the gang had made it to see a large crowd surrounding a particular building. Upon further inspection, they noticed that the entrance to said building was torn down as someone crashed into it. It was safe to say who was the culprit but they needed to be sure.

“Pardon us but could you let us through?” Samurai Bob asked.

The crowd quickly saw that it was the All-Star Heroes. Almost immediately, their eyes brightened up when they saw this.

“Oh, the A.S.H.! Thank goodness you are here!” One man said in relief. “Some blue-haired brute carried a Medieval knight on his shoulder and crashed into the gym!”

“That seems like the beginning of a joke…” The Wraith said, flatly.

“Don’t worry, we are here now!” Samurai Bob reassured.

“Yeah, just stay out of harm’s way!” Tetsuo nodded.

The crowd nodded before it made a path for the A.S.H. The team then wasted no time rushing up the stairs and making their way into the gym. There, they saw that the hallway was just as messed up making too easy to guess which way did he went.

“Is NOTHING sacred to that brute?” Tetsuo growled.

“Come on!” Samurai Bob urged.

The A.S.H. then made their way, following the trail of destruction. All Tetsuo could hope were that they were not too late to save Mel. Especially since she ended up saving THEIR lives and got taken because of it.

Suddenly, Pascal’s eyes lit up before pointing to a broken down door. “THERE! They’re in that room!”

“You sure?” Samurai Bob asked.

Pascal nodded her head. “Positive, boss! Come on!”

The others nodded before making their way through the doorway Pascal pointed at. They immediately got into their stances when they indeed saw Barbatos and Mel.

The axe-wielder in question had Mel by her neck with her struggling in vain to escape his grasp. However, what they noticed was that they was inside of an indoor swimming pool. Barbatos turned his head in surprise.

“Guys!” Mel said with hope brimming through her muffled voice.

Everyone quickly realized what Pascal was talking about. Barbatos had taken Mel to the pool to drop her in the deep end. Even if Mel was mostly invulnerable, she still needs to breathe so she could drown.

Marina immediately aimed her pistol at Barbatos. “It seems that you are smarter than you look…”

“And unfortunately, since you had actually decided to go against me again, I can’t say that  feel the same way.” Barbatos said, darkly.

“Who are you? And why are you doing this!?” Tetsuo said, narrowing his eyes.

“I am Barbatos Goetia.” Barbatos scoffed. “And I am doing this because this woman annoyed me, she attacked me while cowering inside of this armor instead of using her own power and for that, I have to kill her.”

“Cowering inside of the armor instead of using her own power?” Samurai Bob asked. “Is THAT why you are destroying item and weapon stores?”

“Exactly! True fighters doesn’t uses stuff like healing items instead of their natural combat ability!” Barbatos said, narrowing his eyes. “These things are a menace to warriors to me so I take it upon myself to destroy them!”

Tetsuo narrowed his eyes. “And who the hell gives you the right to act like item shops shouldn’t exist!? You say that items are cheap but a lot of people who put in a lot of hard work keeping shop and you had crushed all of said hard work in just a few minutes?”

Barbatos scoffed. “Spare me. Save it for someone who cares. Going out of your way to protect something that nobody should care about. I am going to destroy every single item shop I see! The only reason I haven’t destroyed the last one is because I wanted to teach this woman a lesson!”

He then smirked.

“Now that you are here, I want to show you on how useless EVERYONE’S attempts are.”

With that, he threw down the armored Mel into the pool like a rag doll. Everyone looked shocked as the poor woman fell into the water like a stone.

“MEL!” Tetsuo yelled before rushing over to the pool.

Barbatos smirked as he got ready to slash Tetsuo in half while he was distracted.

However, Marina had other plans as she shot a bullet into Barbatos’ shoulder causing him to cry out in pain, giving Tetsuo enough time to dive straight into the pool to save Mel.

With Barbatos’ prisoner in the care of Tetsuo, everyone felt like that they had no reason to hold back. Especially after that disgrace of a defeat they had earlier. Marina was the first to take advantage of this while locking her pistol and firing.

One bullet to Barbatos’ other shoulder, followed by one to his leg and his other leg followed by a bullet to his arm and his other arm. Samurai Bob, Pascal and Panmusu all stared with wide eyes as Barbatos collapsed on his knees in pain.

“Goodness, Marina…” Samurai Bob said in pure horror.

“What?” The sniper said, casually. “I didn’t went for a headshot just like you instructed.

The Wraith on the other hand smirked. “Ooh, I am loving this woman!”

Despite having several bullets inside of his body, Barbatos merely growled before slamming his axe down on the ground, creating a tremor that took the A.S.H. by surprise and knocked them to the ground.

However, Marina quickly recovered and while still on the ground, she fired a bullet at Barbatos. However, the dark-skinned man quickly blocked it with his axe. Getting up to his feet as if he wasn’t shot at all, he rushed towards the group.

Pascal yelped before poking her shotstaff into the ground and yelling at the top of her lungs.

“Death Sentence!”

Suddenly, a large geyser had appeared in front of the charging Barbatos and struck him causing him to stagger back.

“Attack! Don’t give him a chance to even breathe!” Samurai Bob instructed.

With his command, he, Pascal, the Wraith and Panmusu had all rushed over to the stunned Barbatos. Samurai Bob tackled Barbatos by the legs, knocking the axe-wielder to the ground. The Wraith placed himself onto Barbatos’ chest to pin him to the ground. Pascal took it brought herself to try to stop Barbatos’ weapon’s hand. Finally, Panmusu pounced onto Barbatos and started to pummel his face in.

Marina looked on while aiming her pistol, just in case of the worst. However, things DO turned out for the worst as Barbatos had aggressively got up while throwing everyone else in random directions with the Wraith crashing into Marina, knocking her down.

Samurai Bob weakly got up after being flung into a wall. “Is there anyone who could beat this man?”

Meanwhile, Tetsuo had emerged from the water while carrying Mel in one hand. Acting quickly, he climbed himself and Mel out of the pool.

“Mel, are you okay?” Tetsuo asked, concerned while panting.

The young woman slowly sat up before removing her helmet to reveal a pale and terrified face.

“O-Oh, thank you…” She said in relief. “When I found out that brute was taking me to the pool, I saw my life flash before my eyes!”

“It is alright…” Tetsuo reassured. “All that matters is that you are safe.”


Tetsuo and Mel’s eyes widened before turning their heads. Barbatos had kicked the Wraith in the stomach, knocking him away. The rest of the A.S.H. were all down, struggling to stay conscious.

“Ha! Not like I expected anything else but this is exactly what happened the last time I had faced you!” Barbatos taunted, readying his axe.. “All you are doing is wasting your lives and more importantly, your lives!”

Tetsuo’s pupils shrank as Mel gasped putting her hands to her mouth. Tetsuo frantically looked around knowing that he may not reach his allies in time.

Then, his eyes had caught sight on a poolside chair. He stared at it for a moment before narrowing his eyes. Wasting no time, he rushed over to the chair and grabbed it, easily lifting it over his head. He then threw it across the pool where it crashed into Barbatos’ back. While all it did was make Barbatos stagger forward, it gave Tetsuo the opening he needed.

“Mel, stay out of harm’s way!” Tetsuo said, rushing around the pool to face Barbatos.

“R-Right.” Mel said before putting up her helmet in case she needed it. “Please! Be careful!”

Tetsuo nodded as Barbatos turned around to glare at the guilty party.

“You!” Barbatos growled before rushing towards Tetsuo in a blind rage while swinging his axe in a horizontal fashion. Tetsuo jumped over the attack and kicked Barbatos hard in the face. As Barbatos staggered back, Tetsuo landed on his feet and did an uppercut into his enemy stomach.

Despite having the wind knocked out of him, Barbatos still managed to raised his axe to block Tetsuo’s next punch. Tetsuo tried to make up for his mistake with a kick. However, Barbatos grabbed the leg before it could reach him and swung him right into a wall hard. Tetsuo groaned as he sat against the wall, holding his head.

His eyes then widened when he saw Barbatos charging at him before swinging his axe downwards. Acting quickly, he rolled to the side to avoid the attack and wrapped his arms around him from behind and did a hard reverse bearhug on him. Barbatos winced as Tetsuo tightened his grip, desperate not to let the axe-wielder escape.

Then, Barbatos pushed backwards off of the ground with his feet. Tetsuo wasn’t expecting the sudden shift in momentum and found himself falling on his back with the weight of Barbatos knocking the wind out of him.

Barbatos then sat up and turned around before pulling his axe back to swing it down on Tetsuo. However, the bearded man snapped out of his daze in time to see the weapon. His eyes bugged out before he launched his palms into Barbatos’ chest as quickly as he could, sending his enemy flying backwards and skidding on his back.

The two strongmen got back up to their feet while glaring into each other’s eyes. Then, Barbatos had let out a loud yell before charging at Tetsuo shoulder-first. The brown-haired man merely narrowed his eyes before raising his arms to catch the attack.

While his action was a success, he still found himself skidding on his feet with Barbatos barely losing any speed. Despite this, Tetsuo gritted his teeth and stood his ground. Soon, Barbatos actually slowed down. Finally, Tetsuo picked Barbatos and held his over his head before slamming his down on the ground. Tetsuo then let himself fall to the ground while slamming his elbow into Barbatos’ back hard.

As the two fought, everyone else looked on from the sidelines. Panmusu couldn’t stand watching Tetsuo fight alone so he tried to get up while holding his arm. However, he quickly fell back down.

“Panmusu, no! You are too injured to fight!” Samurai Bob scolded.

“But we can’t just leave Tetsuo all by himself!” Pascal said before frantically looking around. “Marina, can’t you do something?”

The sniper shook her head. “I am too hurt to aim properly. If it is just Barbatos, this wouldn’t be THAT much of a handicap… But one wrong move…”

Pascal’s eyes widened before looking at Tetsuo in concern.

Tetsuo cried out in pain after being thrown in the wall hard. He groaned before looking up. He then gaped when he saw Barbatos rushing towards him. Acting quickly, he ducked underneath his axe. However, Barbatos made up for his mistake by grabbing Tetsuo by the neck.

He then started to engulf Tetsuo in dark energy. Tetsuo cried out in pain as he struggle in vain to escape Barbatos’ grasp. Soon, Barbatos stopped the attack before slamming Tetsuo into the ground before doing a couple of electrified stomps on his back before kicking him to the side, knocking him away.

Barbatos watched with a bored look as Tetsuo struggled to get back up to his feet.

“You are all nothing more than flies to be crushed by my axe!” Barbatos taunted.

“N-No… We would never fall to you… We are the All-Star Heroes and we don’t back down to ANYONE.” Tetsuo said, trying to get into a fighting stance.

Barbatos merely scoffed. “Well, that is your biggest and last mistake. And after you kill you people, then I WOULD be this world’s A.S.H.!”

Suddenly, the entire pool had went straight up by Barbatos’ loud claim. The only sign of noise of that the sounds of drips coming from Tetsuo and Mel after being in the pool.

Finally, Tetsuo slowly broke the silence. “W-What?”

“You heard me! When I killed you, this world will recognise me as its hero!” Barbatos grinned.

“I-I-I…” Samurai Bob said before narrowing his eyes. “I can’t believe you just said something so ridiculous!”

Barbatos raised an eyebrow. “Ridiculous?”

“Yes! Just because you had killed us, doesn’t mean this world would call YOU an All-Star Hero!” Samurai Bob scolded.

“Excuse me? Aren’t the All-Star Heroes supposed to protect THE ENTIRE WORLD?” Barbatos challenged.

Pascal blinked twice. “Y-Yeah… But…”

“Exactly! If I killed you guys, that would prove that I am a great hero!” Barbatos grinned before pumping his axe in the air. “Heroes do grand things and what is more grander than killing this world’s protectors would get inputted into history!”

Tetsuo’s pupils shrank when he heard this. So far, he had destroyed several buildings, vandalized stuff and was currently attempting to kill them. And yet, he thinks if he gets his way, he would be seen as a HERO?

While standing in shock, a voice echoed inside of his side which sent chills down his spine.

”I am a great man! Hahahahahaha!”

Then, Tetsuo slowly narrowed his eyes as he started to breathe in and out heavily. He could only feel like his entire vision was turning red but he didn’t cared.

“How deluded are you!?” Tetsuo roared, getting Barbatos’ attention. “Heroes don’t destroyed property and hurt people! Heroes help those in need and protect the things they hold precious!”

Barbatos then let out a mirthless laugh. “Please! Power is everything! And even if your ridicuously ideal logic is true, I am STILL a better hero than you because at least I have the strength to protect anyone period!”

That was the last straw for Tetsuo. Letting out a loud roar, he ran towards Barbatos in a blind rage as the rest of the A.S.H. and Mel looked in horror. Barbatos merely smirked before raising his axe.

“Tetsuo, NO!” Samurai Bob yelled.

But it was too late. By the time Barbatos swung his axe down, it was too late for Tetsuo to get out of the way.


The A.S.H. and Mel all stared in shock as Tetsuo cried out in agony from Barbatos’ attacks. Red drops of blood quickly fell to the ground as Tetsuo gritted his teeth, trying his best to fight tears of pain.

Even Barbatos stood absolutely stunned by what he was seeing before.

Tetsuo had actually caught Barbatos’ axe with his HAND. He had actually managed to stop the bladed attack without his hand being cut off.

“H-How is that even possible!?” Barbatos asked, not believing that his attack were stopped in such a way.

Tetsuo pulled his fist back. “You are NO hero.”

With that, he launched his fist into Barbatos’ chin as hard as he could, sending the blue-haired man flying up into the air before landing hard on the ground where he skidded a few feet before coming to a stop. Everyone looked on, still looking in awe. After a few moments had passed, they noticed that Barbatos was not moving. He was out cold.

Tetsuo glared down at the unconscious man in pure hatred. He then held his hand in an attempt to stop the bleeding.

Finally, the Wraith broke out of his daze before slowly getting up. “Tetsuo…”

The strongman looked at his fellow giant. “Yes?”

“Stay right there.” The Wraith instructed.

While confused, Tetsuo didn’t say anything as the Wraith made his way over to the unconscious Barbatos. He then fished into his pocket and pulled out a few items.

“Um, what are you going to do?” Tetsuo asked.

“I am going to use a spell so that Sleeping Beauty here would be trapped him until we find a way to take him to prison.” The Wraith explained as he used chalk to draw a circle around Barbatos’ large frame. “For some reason, I strongly doubt that handcuffs would work.”

Tetsuo paused. “So what do you need ME for? I don’t know the first thing about magic.”

“Don’t worry, you will find out soon enough.” The Wraith reassured with a smirk. “All I ask is that you don’t let all of the blood from your hand pour out.”

Everyone watched as the Wraith continued to draw a circle around Barbatos. Then, Tetsuo heard metallic footsteps from behind him. Turning his head, he saw Mel walking over with her helmet off.

“T-Tetsuo…” Mel said.

“Mel, I am sorry that we couldn’t do anything about the roof and the window.” Tetsuo apologized. “I am also sorry that you had to get captured.”

“N-No… It’s fine.” Mel reassured. “J-Just thank you.”

Despite his injury, Tetsuo smiled. “It’s fine, Mel.”


Cortez gaped in shock as he watched the All-Star Heroes, save for Tetsuo, completely covered with bruises with their hair messed up and their clothes torn. While this wasn’t a surprise to see one of his teams injured when he was talking to through holographic channels, that still didn’t made him any less concerned.

“Oh my goodness! What happened to you guys?” Cortez gasped.

“Well, remember when you said that we will face foes even more dangerous than Morcubus?” Samurai Bob asked, sheepishly. “It is safe to say that you weren’t exaggerating.”

Cortez paused. He then noticed that they were one short. “Um, where’s Tetsuo?”

“In the hospital.” Samurai Bob explained.

Cortez’s red eyes widened. “You mean the vandal was more stronger than we thought!?”

“Definitely. Not only did he possessed great physical strength but he had special powers and little remorse for whatever or whoever gets in his way.” Marina explained.

Cortez’s face fell. “Ah, I see… So what happened to him?”

Samurai Bob then smiled. “Don’t worry, the vandal, Barbatos Goetia is currently being transported to prison.”

Cortez’s eyes bugged out at this. “Barbatos Goetia!? You not only came up against Barbatos Goetia but apprehended him!?”

The A.S.H. looked surprised by this.

“Y-Yes… You heard of him before?” Samurai Bob asked.

“Yes, he is the self-proclaimed Killer of Heroes.” Cortez explained. “He had killed countless people, a lot of them being vigilantes. He had been a threat to whatever planet he was visiting at the time!”

“Oh my…” Samurai Bob said before narrowing his eyes. “Well, don’t worry. His days of killing heroes.

Cortez gave a relieved smile. “Well, that is pleased to hear. Though I have to ask. How were you able to hold them?”

“Wraith!” Pascal said, brightly as the zombie-like man in question rubbed his knuckle against his chest.

“Oh, really?” Cortez asked, raising an eyebrow.

“Yes. While we were stationed at the Power Stone Shop, I purchased from items from Mel.” The Wraith explained, proudly. “They were ingredients for a black magic spell that holds whoever’s traps in it in place no matter how strong they are.”

“Yeah, you should had seen Barbatos’ reaction when he saw what was binding him down!” Pascal grinned. “It was priceless!”

“However, it has its drawbacks. Said spells needs blood for them to work…” Samurai Bob said. “And if you want the spell to work efficiently, you need a lot of blood.”

The Wraith then grinned. “Don’t worry. Thanks to Tetsuo, getting a lot of blood was that hard.”

The others glared at the Wraith.

“Even if that is true, you didn’t had to say it while grinning.” Samurai Bob scolded.

“Speaking of Tetsuo, was his injuries that bad?” Cortez asked.

“Well, actually, it is just AN injury but it still warrants medical attention right away.” Samurai Bob said.

The Wraith raised an eyebrow. “Did it? Tetsuo was in pain for sure but he seemed fine otherwise.”

Samurai Bob narrowed his eyes. “I am NOT going to sit back and let somebody bleed, especially after they stopped Barbatos for us!”

“Well, anyway, I would like to apologize.” Cortez frowned. “Evil never sleeps but I would had never imagine that you would come across a dangerous threat so soon.”

Samurai Bob shook his head before giving a salute. “It is fine, sir. I knew what I was getting myself into when I joined this team. We all did. And even then, I want to stick to this team as long as there is evil.”

The others nodded their heads, though the Wraith rolled his eyes at Samurai Bob’s speech. Cortez gave a small smile.

“I am so glad to hear it.” Cortez said. “You know, I knew that you six have potential but I would had never realized that you would impress me this early.”

Samurai Bob scratched the back of his head while blushing, Pascal, Panmusu and the Wraith all grinned while Marina nodded her head.

“Anyway, send Tetsuo my regards.” Cortez smiled. “Rest up and keep up the good work, team. Cortez out.”

With that, the hologram had faded, leaving the team to talk with each other.

“I can’t believe it! We completed our first mission and it was taking down a powerful threat!” Pascal grinned.

“...Did we?” Marina asked.

Pascal’s grin vanished as she looked at Marina. “Huh? What do you mean?”

“When you really think about it, it was really Tetsuo who had defeated Barbatos. Not us as a team.” The dark-haired woman pointed out. “And even then, it was mainly because he was so stunned by Tetsuo catching his axe with his bare hand to defeat us.”

“Agreed. In the end, it was mere luck that the reason why we are here today.” The Wraith said.

Panmusu winced before looking down at the ground in sadness.

“T-That’s…” Pascal frowned.

“...Exactly why we have to improve ourselves!”

Everyone looked at Samurai Bob, who had a stern look on his face.

“Look, one may argue that our win was a fluke and maybe it was but we survived, didn’t we?” Samurai Bob asked. “I mean we are a bunch of ragtag people brought together with little to no time to interact and know each other! That gotta count for something.”

Marina paused before putting her hand on her chin in thought. “That’s not something to be proud of but I can’t argue with that logic. Especially since Barbatos had killed various vigilantes in the past.”

“Exactly! If we were able to defeat Morcubus AND Barbatos when we had little chemistry with each other, just think what we would do after a good amount of training in!” Samurai Bob grinned.

Panmusu’s eyes lit up and he hastily nodded his head.

Samurai Bob then looked at the Wraith. “...And fluke or not, we DID played a major part in taking down Barbatos. Seeing us as a mere decoy team would be disrespect of the highest level.”

The Wraith scratched the back of his head with an exasperated glare on his face. “Ugh, fine, I’ll admit it. Even if I still think we are just an opening act, we may be on our way to becoming the main event after today.”

“Exactly!” Samurai Bob nodded.

Pascal grinned before rushing over to Samurai Bob and wrapping her arms around him, startling him.

“Oh, Samurai Bob! I knew that you would be an awesome leader!” She smiled.

The green-clad man chuckled nervously. “Pascal, please. You give me FAR too much credit.”

”Besides, if it wasn’t for HIS words, I would be sulking along with the rest of you.”


“Come on, try it!”


“But you are hurt!”

“Hurt, not ill.”

“But you lost a lot of blood. You could be affected!”

“Are you for real?”

Tetsuo (now with a bandaged hand) looked in exasperation as he sat in a hospital, talking to a nurse. She was a young woman who actually looked like he was in her late teens with short blonde hair and a black eyepatch had had a winking eye on it.

YAKKO-CHAN/Pop’n Music/Konami/Nurse/Expert On Medicine/Super-Happy

“Aw, come on!” Yakko-chan whined. “Don’t be so stubborn.”

“You are the one being stubborn here…” Tetsuo said, flatly.

“Tetsuo, you had caught an axe with your HAND.” Yakko-chan reminded. “You mean to tell me that you don’t need medical attention?”

“No, it is not that.” The muscular man said. “It’s just…”

He then eyed the items that were inside of Yakko-chan’s hands. They were a giant pill and tablet.

“...I don’t see how pills will help me.” Tetsuo said, flatly.

“Of course, they will! They would give you energy!” Yakko-chan scolded.

“I don’t NEED any energy right now…” Tetsuo said, calmly while trying not to seem annoyed.

“But… But…” Yakko-chan sputtered.

“Yakko-chan, I appreciate the concern but I don’t need the… Additional help.” Tetsuo reassured.

“But Tetsuo…”

“Honestly, Yakko-chan, are you pestering our patients AGAIN?”

Yakko-chan’s uncovered eye yelped as she and Tetsuo turned to the direction of the voice. They then saw another nurse. However, she was much older and her skin seemed a bit pale. She had long brown hair in a ponytail with her bangs covered her left eye.

SAN PAOLO YOKO/Pop’n Music/Konami/Nurse/Like To Go To Clubs In Her Way Time/Sexy And She Knows It

“Yoko!” Yakko-chan gasped before narrowing her eyes. “What a mean thing to say? Tetsuo isn’t just any other patient, he is our friend.”

“Even still, he doesn’t need TWO nurses looking after him.” Yoko said with half-open eyes. “Especially since they are other patients that need more medical attention than him.”

“Y-Yeah… But…” Yakko-chan frowned.

“Darling, do you want the head doctor to find out that you are not doing your regular rounds AGAIN?” Yoko asked.

Yakko-chan’s uncovered eye widened at this. “W-What? No! He scares me! I am going! I promise!”

With that, she rushed past Yoko and out of the room. Yoko smirked triumphantly before looking at Tetsuo.

“Sorry about her, darling. You know what she is like.” She said.

Tetsuo gave a small chuckle. “Y-Yeah, I know from too well.”

She then let out a deep sigh. “You know, Tetsuo. While she is overreacting, her concern is more than warranted.”

Tetsuo’s face fell before looking down.

Yoko continued on while narrowing her eyes. “Honestly, Tetsuo, what were you thinking when you caught that axe with your BARE HAND? I know that you are strong but from what I heard, so what that Barbatos creep?”

“Oh, he was…” Tetsuo muttered while gritting his teeth in anger at the memory of Barbatos.

“Then why did you do it?” Yoko asked. “It is amazing that you haven’t lost a hand!”

Tetsuo looked down at his bandaged hand. “I… I’m sorry. I lost my cool with that Barbatos and before I know it, I had to catch his axe so that I wouldn’t get killed.”

Yoko shook her head. “Tetsuo, darling, we had lost so many friends. Do you really think the people here would want to know that feeling all over again?”

Tetsuo slowly looked up. “Listen, I know that I was reckless but I can’t help it. That man. Barbatos. He reminded me of HIM.”

Yoko’s eyes widened when she heard this as Tetsuo continued.

“I just can’t do it. I just can’t let someone who tries to justifies their actions of hurting people get away like that.” Tetsuo said. “Especially since there are a lot of people counting on me. Rita even asked if the Elympios branch were going to be this world’s Captain Superpop.”

Yoko’s face fell as she weakly nodded her head. “Tetsuo…”

The tan-skinned man looked up. “That is why I have to risk my life. To protect this world. You can’t protect the things you love then having power of any kind is worthless.”

Yoko paused for a moment. She then sighed. “Fine, Tetsuo. Just promise me one thing.”

Tetsuo raised an eyebrow. “And that is.”

Yoko looked up with a stern glare.

“Don’t get yourself killed. No matter how exactly you killed, you would make a lot of people upset.” She said.

Tetsuo looked down in thought. He then raised his head and nodded his head. “Don’t worry. I promise not to get myself killed. I have far too much to do anyway.”

Yoko nodded her head before stepping over. “Anyway, could I check over your hand? I know your injury is not as severe as I initially thought but it is better to be safe than sorry.”

She then gave a smile.

“After all, it would be impossible to protect everyone with one hand, right?”

Tetsuo gave a small smile. “Sure, go ahead..."
Because they were newly-formed, the team didn’t had their own vehicles so they had no choice but to run over to their destination. Thankfully for them, said destination wasn’t that far away.

Soon, they had made it over to their destination: Power Stone Shop. The team panted heavily while looking up at the building. For an item shop, it was quite large. Then again, Marina did said that it had a large array of weapons inside.

“Well, we are here.” Samurai Bob said.

“And it is in one place so that means we had beaten the culprit here.” The Wraith added.

“Well, what are we waiting for?” Tetsuo asked. “Let’s go in and warn the owner!”

Everyone nodded their heads before made their way inside of the building. There, they took a chance to look around. At first, the large spread of weapons seemed reasonable as they were old-fashioned weapons like swords, spears and bows and modern weapons like guns and bombs.

However, they noticed quite a few oddball items like skateboards, tennis rackets, loudspeakers and even a few instruments. Most of the team was no stranger to seeing fighting with strange weapons but still, all of them can’t help but look in awe.

“Oh! The A.S.H. is here! Quite the honor!”

The team turned their heads to see a young woman with freckles and red hair tied in a ponytail. Her attire was simply with a white dress shirt underneath a bright green dress that has dollar signs on it along with a pink apron that has different coins all over it.

“My name is Mel and welcome to the Power Stone Shop!” She said, bowing her head with her hands together.

MEL/Power Stone 2/Capcom/Owner Of Item Shop/Skilled With Creating Weapons

“Ah, yes, thank you for that.” Samurai Bob said with a smile.

“So what could I do for you today?” Mel asked, brightly.

Samurai Bob scratched the back of his head. “Um, well, the thing is… The reason we are here is...”

“A burly guy with an axe is going to come over and attempt to destroy your shop and everything you worked for.” The Wraith said, flatly.

Mel’s smile vanished. “WHAT!?”

“Wraith!” Samurai Bob scolded.

“What? You was trying to say so anyway.” The hooded man said with a shrug.

Mel stepped back a few steps while shaking her head with her face paling. Most of the team looked in concern.

“M-Miss Mel?” Samurai Bob asked.

“I-It’s HIM, isn’t it?” The redhead said.

Tetsuo’s eyes widened at this. “Wait? You KNOW who is attacking item shops everyone?”

“No.” Mel said before rushing past the team and making his way to the window while looking out frantically as if the attacker was right outside.

“But I know enough that he is becoming the bane of item and weapon shops!” She frowned while turning around. “Because of the attacks, most of my staff had quit on me out of fear!”

“So basically you have to run this place by yourself? Ouch.” Pascal winced.

“Oh, don’t worry, I could handle it.” Mel reassured before sighing. “I mean it is not like I got that much customers these days anyway.”

“They are scared…” Samurai Bob frowned.

“As they should be.” Mel said. “I mean one man absolutely destroying an entire shop with nothing but an axe? I am half-tempted to close down my shop for a while.”

Tetsuo narrowed his eyes. “Well, you don’t have to worry because we are here to protect you AND your shop.”

“Yes, that is our job.” Samurai Bob said, crossing his arms.

Mel gave a weak smile. “Oh, thank you, A.S.H. I feel much better that I got the world’s protectors looking after our shop.”

Everyone nodded their heads.

“So leader, we are here. What is our first course of action?” Pascal asked.

“Huh? Oh, um…” Samurai Bob said before pausing. “Well, Miss Mel, you have access to the roof?”

“Um, yes, I do.” The shopkeeper nodded.

“Good. Then, Pascal and Marina, camp out there and keep your eye out for any suspicious figures coming over.” Samurai Bob instructed.

“Yes, sir.” The two women said in unison, despite clearly having different tones in their responses.

“As for the rest of us, we will stay on the ground floor to confront said suspicious figures.” Samurai Bob nodded.

“I don’t have a qualm with that idea.” The Wraith said before eyeing the weapons. “Besides, there is a few things I wanted to check out.”

Panmusu rolled his eyes before looking at Samurai Bob and nodding his head. The samurai gave a small smile.

“Alright, we all have our tasks. Let’s go.” Samurai Bob instructed as everyone nodded.

“Mel, if you please.” Marina said.

“Oh, of course.” The redhead instructed. “This way, ladies.”

With that, she beckoned Marina and Pascal to follow her. The three women then went up the stairs with the men watching them leave.

“Well, so far, so good. No suspicious figures is going to get the jump on this place.” Samurai Bob said, putting his hands on his hips.

Panmusu happily nodded his head. He, Samurai Bob and the Wraith had all made their way around the shop. Tetsuo paused for a moment before walking over deciding to make the best of his situation.


A long time had passed ever since the team had stationed itself at the Power Stone Shop. The A.S.H. had stayed alert while keeping their eyes out for another suspicious. A few people had actually gone inside but they seemed clean and after getting the items or information they got, they exited without a fuss.

A few hours had passed and the team was started to get reckless. Was the attacker coming at all? Were they even stationed at the right shop? Despite this, they knew that they can’t leave. Especially after seeing how worried Mel was. They had to be ready for the attacker, whoever he was.

Samurai Bob and Tetsuo both stared at the window while watching several people make their way pass. Still, no sign of anyone suspicious.

“I feel like a rat waiting for a cat to come along.” Samurai Bob frowned before taking a sip from a thermos.

“Yeah, let’s show that we can bite back.” Tetsuo said, narrowing his eyes.

Samurai Bob sighed before reaching into his pocket and pulling out a thermos and unscrewing the cap to pour himself a drink. Tetsuo raised an eyebrow when he noticed said drink was clear.

“Say, what’s that you have there?” Tetsuo asked.

“Tonic. My own special recipe, in fact.” Samurai Bob explained. “I drink it whenever things gets hairy and I need to calm down.”

“What? So it is some kind of stress relief?” Tetsuo asked.

“Yes, right now, I am more than a little nervous.” Samurai Bob admitted. “I mean we may be facing off a destructive axe-wielder with superhuman strength. I wonder if we would be able to subdue him.”

Tetsuo’s eyes bugged out before putting his finger to his mouth. “Shh!”

Samurai Bob jumped before Tetsuo pointed to the side. Samurai Bob looked behind him to see Mel talking with the Wraith about something with Panmusu looking on.

“Do you want Mel to hear that?” Tetsuo scolded. “You saw how quickly the colour from her face drained upon hearing that her shop may be next!”

Samurai Bob winced before looking down. “S-Sorry…”

“We are the All-Star Heroes now aka the world’s protectors!” Tetsuo continued. “As such, we must be confident. If people see that the All-Star Heroes are just as scared as they are, they would have no hope!”

Samurai Bob’s face fell when he remembered how depressed Renee was after the Simsville Massacre. If she heard him talking while this, she may lose all hope she had gained after seeing Samurai Bob being given the job.

“Come on, man, a leader shouldn’t act like this! He should be mentally hoisting his teammates on his shoulder to show how much he could depend on him!” Tetsuo scolded. “No, a true leader must never let his team show hesitation!”

Samurai Bob paused before looking out the window sadly. “Wow, it seems that I have more to learn about being a leader than I thought...”

“Yes, you do…” Tetsuo said, narrowing his eyes.

Samurai Bob merely sighed as he continued to look out the window. Tetsuo’s face fell when he realized that he may had been a bit rough on his new leader, even if he WAS right. He let out a deep sigh.

“Listen, pal, I…” Tetsuo started.

“Hey, wait a minute!” Samurai Bob shouted, suddenly.

“Huh? What’s wrong?” Tetsuo asked.

“Look outside.” Samurai Bob said, pointing a figure.

Tetsuo quickly obliged and looked out the window. There, he noticed someone was making their way towards the shop. However, he was burly-looking with a brown cloak over him, thus covering his entire body.

Tetsuo narrowed his eyes. “Well… THAT’S not suspicious.”

Samurai Bob nodded his head. “Yes, but let’s not jump the gun just yet. Let’s just confront him.”

“Gotcha.” Tetsuo said before looking back at the others. “Yo, guys! We are going to check something real quick! Hopefully this should only take a few minutes!”

“If you say so.” The Wraith said as Panmusu nodded his head.

Samurai Bob and Tetsuo had both nodded their heads and made their way outside of the shop before making their way over to the man.

“Pardon us, sir but could you take off your hood for us, please?” Samurai Bob asked.

The cloaked figure paused. “And why should I?”

“We just want to see your face.” Tetsuo said, sternly. “Now quit making it harder for everyone here.”

“Oh and who exactly to command me what to do.” The cloaked figured challenged.

Tetsuo narrowed his eyes. “Buddy, I don’t know who you think you are but WE are the All-Star Heroes.”

The cloaked figure paused at this. “Oh, so you must be the ones who been selected to be Elympios’ new protectors. I guess I must had missed that news report.”

Suddenly, the man gave a toothy grin.

“Well, that makes things even better for me.”



Inside of the store, Mel gasped in horror while the Wraith and Panmusu looked shocked at what they were looking out the window. Several passerbys screamed in horror before running off in fear.

The cloaked figure stepped in pain as he shook his hand to ease the agony. However, while doing so, he revealed a large sharp-looking axe. Samurai Bob and Tetsuo looked shocked before narrowing their eyes.

“Nice shot, Marina!” Pascal cheered from the roof.

“No problem.” The sniper reassured while still aiming her sniper rifle.

Samurai Bob reached into his sheath and pulled out his katana and pointed it at the cloaked figure.

“Sir, you are under arrest for suspicion of destruction of various shops.” He said, sternly. “Drop your weapon now and get on the ground.”

The cloaked figure merely scoffed. “You think that just because your coward of a sniper got a cheap shot on me, I should surrender?”

With that, he used his free hand to take off his cloak to reveal his full appearance. He had dark skin with contrasting long light blue hair that went past his shoulders. He wore a dark purple long-sleeved shirt with matching gloves over with a white vest, blue pants and black boots.

BARBATOS GOETIA/Tales of Destiny 2/Namco/Killer Of Heroes/Insanely Powerful/HATES Items

While startled, Samurai Bob didn’t broke from his stance. “Sir, don’t be foolish. You are outnumbered six to one AND you have a bullet in your weapon hand. All you doing is making this harder for yourself.”

Barbatos merely smirked. “You really don’t know who I am, do ya?”

With that, he raised his axe with a mighty, earth-shattering yell.


With that, he swung his axe at Samurai Bob and Tetsuo. The two of them quickly jumped back to avoid the attack. However, they weren’t able to avoid falling on their rears because of a large tremor.

Marina acted quickly and aimed her sniper rifle at Barbatos’ shoulder and fired. However, the blue-haired man somehow saw this coming and quickly blocked with his axe, deflecting the bullet.

However, Tetsuo had decided to take advantage of Barbatos being distraction and rammed his shoulder right into Barbatos’ shoulder, tackling him to the ground and pinning his arms down with his hands.

“Alright, buddy! You just earned an one-way ticket to prison!” Tetsuo announced.

“Like hell I am going there!” Barbatos yelled. He then slammed his head into Tetsuo’s forehead. The attack not only stunned Tetsuo but sending him flying backwards and skidded back on the ground. Barbatos then got back to his feet.

Only for Marina to fire another shot straight into Barbatos’ shoulder. The axe-wielder cried out in pain before glaring up at the roof of the shop.

“You like projectiles so much? How much you like it now!?” Barbatos roared before pumping his axe in the air. “HELL HEAT!”

Suddenly, his axe had started to glow red as he floated up into the air. Then, he released a series of purple fireballs at the roof. Marina and Pascal’s eyes widened in shock before jumping back. They managed to avoid the attack but the fireballs hit the roof hard, resulting in a large fire.

“No!” Pascal yelled before rushing towards the fire and concentrating.“In the name of Smokey the bear, only I could prevent forest fires! MAELSTORM!”

With her strange incantation, she surrounded herself with a large whirlpool which spun away at the fire. While it did stop the flames from spreading, it didn’t little to stop it.

“Oh no! My magic may not be enough!” Pascal said before casting another spell. “Marina, find a fire extinguisher or something and help me kill those flames!”

“But how about the attacker?” Marina asked.

“Even if we stop him, this place will be destroyed anyway if we don’t get rid of this fire!” Pascal called out.

Marina gritted her teeth in frustration. “V-Very well.”

With that, she turned around and ran off back inside of the shop to find the nearest fire extinguisher. Even though Pascal was right about killing the flames, she was still concerned about Barbatos. His strength was beyond comprehension and to add insult to injury, he seemed quite blood-thirsty. All he could hope was that the rest of her team would be able to stop him.

Meanwhile, Barbatos swung his axe in a horizontal fashion. Samurai Bob yelped before quickly ducking underneath the attack. Acting quickly, he swung his katana at Barbatos. However, Barbatos quickly blocked the attack and quickly shoved the samurai away.

By this time, Panmusu had hopped out of the shop, followed by the Wraith. The former then charged up an energy ball in his hands and released it forward. Barbatos however, saw this coming and easily swatted it away with his free hand.

Panmusu just narrowed his eyes before zooming towards Barbatos at an alarming speed and doing a jumping uppercut to the blue-haired man’s stomach. He then swung around, sweeping Barbatos off of his feet with his tail. Panmusu smirked before jumping onto Barbatos’ chest and doing a series of punches to Barbatos’ face, not giving him a chance to react.

“Nice one, little guy!” Tetsuo grinned, clenching his fist.

Unfortunately, all this was doing was angering Barbatos. “Get off me, you little pest!”

With that, he swung his fist into Panmusu’s face. Everyone looked in shock as the Breloom was sent flying high into the air before falling to the ground like a rock.

“Panmusu!” Samurai Bob cried out.

“Don’t worry, little buddy! I gotcha!” Tetsuo yelled. With that, he leapt up into the air and grabbed Panmusu before he could hit the ground. While the Pokemon was saved from a nasty fall, he was knocked out instantly by Barbatos’ punch.

Suddenly, Barbatos rushed over shoulder-first into Tetsuo, sending him and Panmusu flying backwards until Tetsuo crashed back-first into a window making Mel cry out in horror.

“Tetsuo! Panmusu!” Samurai Bob gasped.

The Wraith narrowed his eyes. “Impressive strength. However, in the end, you are just a glorified meathead.”

With that, he rushed over to Barbatos. The axe-wielder quickly swung his weapon at the Wraith but the latter swerved his head back to avoid the blow. Then, a snake had shot out of his hood and bit Barbatos on the shoulder.

“Ack! Why you!” Barbatos growled before he felt his body going numb. “H-Huh? My body feels strange...”

“Heh. Whether they are for the law or against it, muscleheads are all the same.” The Wraith said, smugly while putting one fist on his hip.

However, his grin vanished when he found a large foot into his torso.

After being kicked by Barbatos, the Wraith flew straight into Samurai Bob, knocking the two to the ground. The two men groaned before slowly getting up, holding their heads.

“I-Impossible…” The Wraith said, weakly. “He was supposed to be stunned for at least a minute.”

“W-What IS that man?” Samurai Bob groaned.

“All those muscles and you hide behind your pitiful tricks!” Barbatos growled before got into a defensive stance with energy flowing around him making his hair and clothes waiver. “EVIL SPHERE!”

After letting out the loud shout, he engulfed Samurai Bob and the Wraith in a dim black sphere. Suddenly, purple balls of energy appeared in the sphere and struck the two men multiple times. They both screamed in pain before falling back on the ground. Samurai Bob was still conscious but the Wraith had passed out.

“You call yourself the All-Star Heroes? You are nothing more than a bunch of amateurs!” Barbatos taunted before stomping over. “I should kill you guys where you stand!”

“Get away from them!”

Barbatos’ eyes widened before looking up. He then saw Tetsuo stampeding towards him. Despite startled, the blue-haired man swung his axe at Tetsuo. However, the brown-haired man jumped to the side to avoid the blow and did a hard chop on Barbatos’ hand. Barbatos winced as he dropped his axe.

“Heh! Not so tough now without your axe!” Tetsuo taunted. With that, he pulled his fist back and sent it into Barbatos’ face as hard as he could.

Which would had happened if Barbatos didn’t easily got the fist and starting to squeeze it tightly making Tetsuo wince.

“Do you think I am helpless without my axe?” Barbatos retorted. “Worm! All it does is prolong the inevitable!?”

Barbatos then punched his free hand out but Tetsuo had caught the fist before it could hit him. The two then went into a power struggle with each other.

However, Tetsuo seemed to be losing as he found himself going onto one knee. He winced with wide eyes in pure horror at the outcome on the battle.

Then, while still keeping his grip on Tetsuo’s hands, Barbatos lifted the ex-construction worker up before slamming him on the ground hard.

“Die! Die!” Barbatos then stomped onto Tetsuo’s back as multiple times. A lightning bolt seemed to accompany each stomp. Tetsuo cried out in pain.

Mel looked on in horror at what was happening. The A.S.H. were being beaten by a bunch of sick dogs so easily by one man. It seemed like she was hoping for too much for her shop to be safe.

She sadly looked down at Panmusu who was still unconscious. How he was able to take a punch from that beast and survive was anyone’s guess. Even when they were clearly outmatched, they were still fighting to protect her.

Mel then looked over at the side. Suddenly, her eyes widened in realization. She was inside of a weapon store.

Meanwhile, Samurai Bob used his katana to get up onto his feet. Despite still feeling the pain from the spell, he rushed over to Barbatos who was still stomping on top of Barbatos.

“Get away from him!” Samurai Bob yelled before swinging his sword at Barbatos. However, the samurai’s shout had alerted Barbatos to the attack, giving him enough time to jump back and avoid the blade. Samurai Bob tried again with a vertical attack and managed to catch him in the chest.

Barbatos winced in pain before his hurt expression quickly turned into a furious one. He then grabbed Samurai Bob by the throat and lifted him off of his feet. Samurai Bob winced in pain before slashing the arm that had him. But while Barbatos winced, he just slapped the weapon out of Samurai Bob’s hand.

“Samurai Bob!” Tetsuo called out as he tried to get up to save Barbatos. However, he quickly cried out in pain falling onto his face.

As he laid on the ground, his eyes slowly widened. He was in pain. Not that he was immune to it but he wasn’t hurt enough that he would literally too hurt to move. What could this happened? He could literally block falling steel girders with his fist so how was this man easily outmuscle here, let alone by a long shot? Barbatos scoffed before kicking Tetsuo in the side, sending him sprawling him away.

“Tetsuo!” Samurai Bob said, weakly. However, Barbatos tightened his grip around his neck.

“Forget about this pathetic waste of space? It should be YOU should be concerned for!” Barbatos scolded.

Tetsuo watched on the ground as Barbatos knelt down and picked his axe. His eyes then widened in horror when he realized that Barbatos was going to kill his friend. Even though he only knew Samurai Bob for a short time, he seemed like a friendly and kind man.

Also, there was a part of him that Tetsuo could relate to after hearing that about his experience in the Simsville Massacre. And now, he was about to see a good man killed right in front of him. He struggled to get up to his feet but while it was a bit easier to get up, his pain was still catching up to him.

“Elympios was foolish to select your weaklings as its protectors.” Barbatos said, darkly before pulling his axe back. Samurai Bob winced, preparing for the worst.


All of a sudden, an explosion had collided with Barbatos causing him to fly backwards and drop Samurai Bob, leaving him rubbing his sore throat. Tetsuo looked in horror before turning his head towards the direction of where the explosion came from.

His eyes widened when he saw someone wearing completely clad in knight armour while wielding a bazooka.

Barbatos got back to his feet with a furious look on his face, looking around for the guilty party that had attacked him. It didn’t took him that long to find said person.


Suddenly, he dashed towards the person in the suit of armor at an alarming speed. While startled, the person merely aimed their bazooka at the person and fired a missile at Barbatos, hitting him dead on.

However, much to everyone’s horror, it didn’t little to stop him. Before anyone could react, he grabbed the armored person by its throat, making them dropping their bazooka.


He then slammed the person on the ground, creating a large tremor.


He then stomped on the person a couple of times.


With that, he swung his axe upwards with fire surrounding his weapon, striking the armoured person in the air. Samurai Bob and Tetsuo looked in horror as the person landed on top of the bazooka breaking it in half. There was nobody could survive an attack like that.

A smirk crept across Barbatos’ face as he looked as his look. He then started to laugh evilly at his success.

“That is what you using items in a fight!” Barbatos taunted as he continued laughing.

However, his laughter slowly stopped when he heard a noise. The sound of groans. His eyes bugged out before looking down to see the armored person slowly sitting up.

“How… How is that possible?” Barbatos asked, taken emotionally off-guard for once.

“It’s… My armor.” The armored person said, slowly.

“What? Your armor?” Barbatos questioned.

“Yes, it is specifically built to withstand any attack. Including YOURS.” The armored person explained. “And the only person who could forcibly remove it is the user!”

Barbatos’ pupils shrank before he gritted his teeth in anger. “Come out of the hunk of junk and take your death like a man!”

“I don’t think so! I refuse to just sit back and let you destroy everything that I worked for!” The armored person scolded.

Samurai Bob and Tetsuo both looked surprised by this.


All Barbatos did was narrow his eyes. “Ah, I see. Only someone who sells such cowardly tactics would use them.”

Suddenly, he grabbed Mel and hoisted her over his shoulder before stomping off.

“H-Hey! Where are you taking me!?” Mel demanded.

“To find a way around your armor so I could kill you.” Barbatos explained. “Be grateful that you pissed me off enough to actually ignore your shop and these pathetic beings for All-Star Heroes.”

“Mel!” Tetsuo yelled before getting up his feet. However, he found himself collapsing on his knee, still feeling the pain.

“Guys! I have healing potions inside my shop! Take as much as you need to heal!” The shopkeeper called out. “Just please! Save me!”

Samurai Bob and Tetsuo looked in horror as they watched Barbatos stomp away while carrying the armored Mel away. They had gave their word to protect Mel and yet they had to be saved by her and let her get captured.

Tetsuo gritted his teeth while punching the ground angrily. His first mission as an All-Star Hero and he had failed miserably.

You know, it's funny how you were able to somehow tell that Chrom and Lucina were going to be in something like PXZ, while I said Fiora would be on it.
Tinyhammer Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2015
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. O__o I mean it is as if the staff had a sneak peek at my quote list for Konami X SNK X Nintendo.

It gets really freaky when Chrom is basically the Butt Monkey of the Fire Emblem franchise for not appearing in Smash as a playable character AND continues have Fire Emblem Awakening represented as third-party characters by Robin and Lucina.

Also, Fiora over Shulk, Dunban or even Riki for the Xenoblade representative? I mean I get it is because she and KOSMOS are female cyborgs with similar attacks.

This is just one coincidence but dang, if it isn't a huge one. O__o

Kyo: What, you're still using a gun?
Henry: Oh yeah! Cause it's not like I have no experience of martial arts, or that getting close to a monster whould get me killed, or that it's impossible for me to make fire on my hands, or that I care for my survival rather than being a "a manly man"! All it matters is that I have to use my fists just so I can become an idiot that desperately wants pointless bragging-rights just to show-off people who won't even believe you!!
Iori: ...I'm still calling you a coward.
Tinyhammer Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2015
XD Poor Henry. Being stuck with Iori is bad enough but while Kyo isn't nearly as abrsavive, he isn't too much better.

Haruhi & Kyon
Kyon: Say Haruhi, have you notice that Ed looks...yellow?
Haruhi: So what? He probably stayed in the sun for too long.
Ed: Really? I thought it was becuase I ate too much buttered toast.

Haruhi & Kyon (2)
Kyon: Say Haruhi, do you think that Ed's strength is rather...inhuman?
Haruhi: Don't be stupid, Kyon! He probably just works out everyday.
Ed: I didn't know that hugging chickens and eating buttered toast is exercise.

Eddy & Double D
Eddy: Ha! Ha! The gang's back baby! Now let's get to work, Boys!

Akihiko & Mitsuru
Deadpool: Boy Mitsuru, I sure hope you won't use MARIN KARIN over and over again.

Akihiko: Similar to you and Torr. We can even say that you already have your own persona! (But, really not.)

Eddy & Double D
Ferra: Ed like Torr, Ed can be mount.
Double D: While I can see why, i'm not sure if doing that is a good idea.
Eddy: I would probably start my own will if Sarah or May becomes the rider.

Yuri & Karin
Ferra: Yuri turns to Giant Rock Monster, Karin rides monster, and attacks like we!
Karin: You mean I can give orders to Yuri at any time? That's actually a good idea, Ferra. *chuckles*
Yuri: Like you have any way to force me to become your packing mule!

Kortal Kahn & Erron Black
Kortal Kahn: I am Kortal Kahn, Emperor of Outworld! Stop your actions and give up, resistance will result with death!
