Adon - The New Emperor of Muay Thai

Description: Having just recovered from his ruthless beating from Sagat, Adon has awoken to a world where countless usurpers challenge his right to rule. Amongst them, the holder of the Eastern Champion Belt, Joe Higashi, has been the loudest claim to the throne. Adon seeks out Joe to assert his right to rule over the Empire of Muay Thai... and to make an example for treasonous followers of Muay Thai.

The Muay Thai Title Unification Match.
Joe Higashi, having defeated Hwa in a brutal battle by the skin of his teeth, has been reigning as the unofficial Emperor while Adon has been out. He's successfully defended his title a dozen times, without any particular competition to note of. His wild and charismatic style has earned him a lot of support, and Adon's less than honorable manner of acquiring his title has left many saying one thing:
Let Joe keep it.
Obviously, Adon can't let this sort of thing stand. And Joe has been doing nothing but insult and debase the other man, while he's been unable to defend himself verbally due to a little thing called a 'full body cast'. Oh, how much hate, seething and rage can one man accrue? When the white cast shell molted, Adon SHOULD be too weak and feeble to even move for another month of heavy rehab...
But they might underestimate the power given to muscles, when they have an ass to kick.
Right now, the overwhelming majority of people in the crowd are pro-Joe and pro-Kanda. Almost nobody is stating Adon's name, except to insult him. They will only recognize power here, as the shorts-wearing, spiky-haired Tornado King stands on the turnbuckle ropes and pumps his arm to the crowd. When Adon arrives, he immediately turns...

It was utterly disgusting.

Adon was, and always will be, the true Emperor of Muay Thai. He was the ultimate in the art of Muay Thai, the most powerful in Muay Thai, at least, in the sense that he had technically defeated Sagat, the former Emperor of Muay Thai. Certainly, it had left him entirely broken, to rot within the body cast that Sagat had forced him in. But Muay Thai was a strong art, and Adon was a strong fighter. So every insult, every mockery that had been hurled out to Adon's ears had stewed and simmered.

Only to be released today.

Adon strides in, wearing his blue boxers, hands and feet bound tightly by bandages. In spite of his helpless state, he was moving with the arrogant stride of a practiced fighter. He did not care about the jeers at him. No, he heaped it on him, cackling loudly as he struts to the center ring. Upon his head was a crown, the crown of Muay Thai, and upon his limbs were circlets reflecting the wealth and power of such a king. As he reaches the center ring, he gives the ritual bow at the ropes, before the red-haired fighter pulls himself within the rings... just in time to see Joe's two-cheeked insult.

"SO!? You dare insult ME!?!"

The howl of the True Emperor of Muay Thai shrieks over the boos of the audience. "You DARE insult I! ADON! The EMPEROR of MUAY THAI?" He repeats, incredulous at the very notion that Joe could have ANYTHING close to the older fighter talent. Adon screws his face up in disgust, staring hard into the plump muscled cheeks of Joe's buttocks. Body tightening in rage, he just snarls. "I will do MORE than KISS YOUR ASS, FOOL! I! ADON! THE TRUE EMPEROR of MUAY THAI!" Adon begins to make ripping motions with his hands. "Shall REND your TENDER CHEEKS FLIM FROM FLAM!" Just as swiftly, he falls into the defensive stance of Muay Thai, bringing his right leg and both arms up, ready to strike.

"I will SHOW YOU just how STRONG I TRULY AM!"

"The false king wears a lead crown, huh?!" Joe states, laughing uproariously as he slaps his pale white cheek right in Adon's direction. "Sagat ruled for years, and he never had the need for PROPS!" Twisting around, he jumps off and settles in the corner, doing some stretches via swift, deep squats as the other man prepares himself.
"You are insulting YOURSELF, old man!! I'm surprised Sagat wasted the time he did on you! You're lacking something." Standing upright, Joe grins, teeth glinting bright. Yes, there was a flash. "TALENT. And CHARISMA. Sagat had PRESENCE. You have nothing... nothing but SHAME."
A finger points, and the crowd cheers further. Some of those going for Kanda now are cheering for Joe; the 'Unofficial Emperor' is having no part in today, after all. But somewhere in the crowd, a cloaked figure might be watching, stewing, seething just as much as Adon did...
At the mockery of the sport and country he holds dear before him.
"YATA!!" Suddenly Joe is rushing forward. But one hand reaches backwards, hooking at his shorts. Two short knees are thrown at Adon's midsection, trying to half-clinch him...
So Joe can leap up and around, and plant his ass right into Adon's face. Full contact, no inhibition. And hard enough to bloody his nose, if it landed true. "THIS IS THE ONLY PART OF ME YOU'RE A MATCH FOR!!"

Adon was steadily growing hot with fury.

The nerve. The sheer GUMPTION of the younger Muay Thai artist. It was clear to Adon that his time being trapped in that body cast had only allowed his rivals to grow arrogant. And if there was on thing that Adon could not stand, it was petty arrogance. Snarling, the Emperor turns his nose up, his eyes shooting daggers at his opponent. "You MEWLING BABOON! You can't even BEGIN to COMPETE at the SAME LEVEL as the JAGUAR of MUAY THAI!" As the crowd cheers, the emperor just trembles with rage. As Joe fires forward, hocking up his shorts, The Emperor's scowl fads in an instant.

And an arrogant sneer takes it place.

Deftly, Adon lowers his other foot down. With blistering speed, Adon turns, rotating around his pouncing opponent. The charging ass-attack meets nothing, as Adon simply evades. "You CLOWN! You BUFFOON! This is how you SHOW HONOR to the SACRED ART of MUAY THAI!?" The Emperor screams, bending his knees.


And Adon moves. The jaguar pounces, hurtling straight through the air with a bold, overwhelming roundhouse kick. The entire limb would be smashed down, crushing downward with staggering force. And where Adon was aiming was not a weak point. But the message would be clear. He would slam that limb hard upon the ass of the one Joe.

And he would break his butt as a TRUE MUAY THAI MASTER!

"I'm not even trying yet!" Joe states with a laugh, still acting as if this was all a game. No; there's a love for it there, but not pride. This man is not fitting to be Emperor. He's a showman at best, although a world famous champion. The idea of everyone in Thailand looking up to a trash talking mooner... only the youth are really cheering for Joe here. Those who remember Sagat's reign are more aghast at what is taking place. Joe had been straightforward outside his proclivity for losing his garments before... But now, he's as bad as Adon.
Wait, now he's worse.
"Oh!" Joe states, when his ass meets only the air. And then a challenge is metted out. Twisting around, Joe pulls his pants further down, and launches back. The heel meets one mighty cheek, before skipping off...
And then Adon impacts that rump, taken down to land heavily on his back in the middle of the ring.
He just lost in Muay Thai...
To Joe's ass.
And there's a weight missing when the other man stands up. Bent over so far that his head's near the ground, Adon's crown is now settled atop his glorious cheeks, glimmering in the sight. "BEHOLD!!" he calls out, thrursting his arms up to either side. Somewhere in the crowd, Kanda just leaves. He cannot watch this disgrace any further.
Muay Thai: Now officially an ALL-TIME LOW.

There is a shrill scream.

Everything had happened to Adon in slow motion. He lands the blow, yes, and he is dimly aware of the hoots and jeers, the childlike cheers. But as it glances on the ass cheek, the Emperor suddenly finds himself taken down by that very same ass. Landing flat on his back, the jaguar's eyes roll around in his head. And then, locks straight forward. Adon's entire body tenses as he reaches a hand to his red hair, patting at it. He shoots up to a stand, to stare at Joe. And there, he looks into the full, dimpled moon.

And he sees his crown upon the ass of Joe.

"KYAAAAAAA!!!!" Was that shrill scream. Adon doesn't think. He acts. The hot-blooded Emperor hurls himself forward at crack neck speeds, roaring forward in blind rage. The Muay Thai Master just launches himself to try and clinch Joe, to grab him like a predatory cat. And should he get his clutches on the clown, he will just smash his knee, again and again, ripping his limb straight into Joe's gut.

He would not let go until one of them started to bleed.

Joe's done it. He made Adon snap. That's... probably not as much an advantage in the fight as he'd of liked, honestly. But when the man rushes forward, Joe manages to ditch the crown and pull up his pants, kicking his heel and sending it spiraling out of the ring. "Alright. Let's play for real now...!!" The clinch is met by the other Muay Thai man, and Adon would be even more infuriated to see that it was perfect. He's got his elbows inside the slender bird's, and is shifting to catch the knees with his hip. Suddenly he kicks off the ground and shoves away, breaking the attempt with a growl.
"DOUBLE..." A sudden clenched fist surges out, and a crimson swirl of energy bursts upwards to about two meters. It whirls in place, and the crowd stops their booing to see an actually impressive fight begin to take place. "UPPER!!" A second blow with his other hand sends it bursting out, trying to suck Adon within and send him in a few rotations before violently spitting him in the vorpal orange flaming chi to the opposite side of the ring!!

Adon was feral now.

Forthing mad, he was attempting to rip Joe piece by piece this close. Smashing his knee again and again, he doesn't even recognize the talent Joe was showing. When he is shoved back, Adon is already hurling himself back, attempting to pounce upon the man. As the swirl of energy comes, the Emperor's eyes suddenly go wide. As the blast comes, the pupils turn to pinpricks. The Emperor struggles desperately to slip past the energy blast.

And it knocks him away.

Adon is, for a moment, stunned. Landing hard into a tumble, he nearly rolls off the ring on impact. "Grah-!!!" He groans, groping around blindly as he seethes. The anger was no longer blind. But it was not surpressed. Grabbing the ropes, he grips them tight as he turns around. "Is this ALL you HAVE!?" He screams, pushing himself off the ropes. "You rely on CHEAP and FAKE TRICKS, INFERIOR ENERGY BLASTS that CORRUPT MUAY THAI? A TRUE MUAY THAI WARRIOR does not DEPEND on such TRICKS!"


Adon takes to the air again. In spite being knocked away, the sheer speed and fury of the charge neatly negates it. The Emperor was firing forward, rocketing forth at breakneck speeds. Brining both knees up, he draws back his arms, telegraphing what is to come. Should Adon smash his knees into Joe, he will clench them around the young fighter's chest. And there, like a tripwire, he would smash both of his elbows hard into the top of Joe's skull. Screaming all the way.

"Muay Thai is a sport. Wow, you're a little obsessive. I like it because it's strong!! And isn't strength all that matters, in Thailand?! Maybe..." He sneers, swiping his nose with a thumb as the other man rages towards him. Joe is remaining calm and composed, and right now Adon is telegraphing himself horribly to the younger man.
"You're not mighty. You're just lucky?"
The two knee smashes are darted to the side, before he sharply thrusts his fists skyward. The elbows run down the outside, raw force channeled away by a perfect stance. He knows his fundamentals exactly. In terms of martial combat, he's using true, full-blooded Muay Thai. Only then he twists into a brutal overhead kick, heel sweeping out in a brutal crescent as a great wash of orange flame scythes out, aiming to slam across Adon from shoulder to hip in a savage manner. "YATA!" he repeats, aiming to send the other man staggering back. "You're gonna make me YAWN!!"

This wasn't happening.

As Adon lands on both legs, catching no Joe in his trap, everything was playing out before him. He had just defeated Sagat. He had just made himself the Emperor of the world of Muay Thai. And NOW he was losing it all to a man who exposes himself? As the overhead kick comes out, Adon struggles to evade, bringing up his arm to deflect the crushing kick.

And instead, it smashes through.

"KYAAA!!" Was the howl of pain as Adon just shoots down to the floor. Groaning, his entire body trembles as he falls to his knees. Gasping heavily for air, Adon shudders. He tries to stand. He fails, collapsing onto his chest. "GRRRAAAGH!" The wounded animal cries. He felt himself being watched. Watched by prying eyes... was this the fate of Muay Thai? To be left into the hands of Joe...?


The was the scream as suddenly, Adon launches back, away to the corner post of the ring. Flipping towards it, he lands against the post of the turnbuckle. And with a pounce, he rockets straight for Joe, aiming his foot into a straight kick at crack neck speeds.


Was the shrill scream; whether or not he hits with the kick or not, would not stop the second assault: Adon would then, promptly, hurl out a riot of power. He would either flip off against the ground, should he miss, or off Joe himself. Flips overhead, his body will surge with orange energy of his own. Raising his leg high, the Jaguar of Muay Thai would outright attempts to smash it down hard into an energy-laced heel drop, aiming right into the middle of that man's skull, howling aloud the true nature of the attack.

"YATA!! I WIN!! OF COURSE!!" Joe states, turning away and thrusting his fists up towards the sky when Adon's first attempt to get back up fails. He makes an exclaimation of surprise at the new shriek of denial, and turns around just in time. Slipping back into his picture-perfect Muay Thai stance, knee up and forearms loosely held before himself, forearms crossing to catch the kick with a heavy *THUMP!* that staggers him backwards. "...!!" That was a hell of a blow. Stumbling, he darts backwards in a quick jet, the heel slicing through and cutting off a few strands of hair.
And then Joe's just bouncing foot to foot, having yet to have a blow land cleanly. Making a fool of him, like he has so many others. "Come on. You? The Emperor? Don't make me laugh. That crown..."
"Really was better on my ass than your head." He beckons, spitting right at Adon's face. Before sweeping forward suddenly, twisting around and snapping a kick aimed to hit Adon right in the gut, short and sharp. Trying to end it by knocking the very wind right out of his solar plexus...!!

The Adon's riproaring, desperate return was negated. His final assault, blunted. The haughty young Muay Thai artist was outperforming Adon within the ring of Muay Thai. Seething, impotent rage courses through the martial artist's form as his heel misses, falling short. And then, as Adon rises deftly, he glowers, his sneering, psychotic grin spread across his face, as Joe mocks him.

And then, strikes him.

The kick that comes to his face comes just as Adon's leg... gives out. He had, after all, left the hospital early, under the protests of the doctors. He ignored them. And now, his leg falters. When Adon wished to dodge, he instead takes the kick hard into his shoulder, knocking him to the ground.

Adon is still.

The crowd begins to roar, as the count comes. Boos intermingle with cheers, though the cheers slightly edge out the boos. But not the murmurs. The murmurs of the future of Muay Thai. If the likes of Joe was winning, along with the likes of King taking a championship position... was this the future? Ass clowns and women? The count reaches 9 when suddenly..

Adon rises.

Fires, more like it. The Emperor hurls out at crack neck speeds, bellowing out with psychotic rage. He would fire up a rising knee, followed by a second, more brutal knee. If both hit, he would flip forward with a crashing, Jaguar Kick. But there would be no cries of 'Rising Jagga' or 'Jagga Keeks.' There would just be laughter, highpitched, insane laughter. After the aerial heel drop, he would just mount on Joe's shoulders, and hammer his elbows again and again into his empty head. And just smash him down to the ground, to allow his coup de grace.

A driving kick straight down into his chest.

Adon was not done yet.

"YATA! I WIN!" Joe repeats a second time, thrusting his arm up to the air. Unlike before, the referee begins to enter the ring to make it official, even though it is obvious that Adon is the lesser of two evils. It only takes someone like Joe to show the merits of the old Emperor of Muay Thai's legitimacy in retaking his crown. And right as he mounts the turnbuckle and thrusts his arms up...
Again? "Aren't you finished, old man?!" Hopping down, he truly thinks that there's nothing left in him. The sudden speed catches him off-guard, an attempted block blown through and striking him in the face. Blood flies up, and the explosive series of elbows blacks him out.
He only wakes up again when the kick SLAMS him into the center of the ring, blood everywhere. He's glazedly staring up at the sun far overhead. Adon has to be grabbed and warned he'll be disqualified if he doesn't stop attacking.
And then, after only a four count, Joe's back on his feet. "C,cornered rat... can bite back, huh..." He then extends his right arm, before slowly beginning to rotate it. "Fine... I'll se-settle this... for reals!!" A wisp of flame ignites, before beginning to roar into motion. Suddenly there's a pinwheel of roaring inferno, before he lets out a roar and then launches an explosive punch.
And a huge tornado destroys half of the ring, stretching out enough to impact the massive wall of the arena. Lasting a good number of seconds, roaring into life and ripping around the surroundings.

That was the howling scream as Adon surges back to life, and in turn, straight into a rampage. Only the ref stops him from continuing his relentless assault onto the unconscious Joe, and it actually has to be torn away. As the referee tries to explain to him, Adon's only response is screaming. "How DARE you! HOW DARE YOU! Do you know who I am? I AM ADON! THE TRUE EMPEROR OF MUAY THAI! I AM THE GREATEST MUAY THAI WARRIOR OF ALL TIME! I AM THE RULER OF THIS RING, AND MY LAW IS MUAY THAI LAW!" The arrogant howling comes to a feral pitch as Joe rises up. Adon doesn't seem to respond, too caught up with his screaming match with the ref.

It is only when the ref backs down, does he notice the surging flame.

The whirling inferno's light reflects in this Emperor's eyes, the beatened, bruised Jaguar staring into the flames. His leg begins to give out again, another collapse threatening. But the grin only grows. "Do not demean me, BOY!" He seethes, as the man launches towards him, the tornado coming to a climax "I am no rat..." He begins.

And then the tornado comes.

The whirling torrent of flame explodes, rending out. The ring, where Adon once stood upon, was gone. The ref, having the good sense to run when he saw what was coming, barely cleared the blast wave of the fiercesome assault. Even the walls of the arena were smashed, as the audience finally grows silent. As the flames clear, Adon is nowhere to be seen in the aftermath of the conflagration. But a scream rings out.


That was the scream from right next to Joe's ear, right above him. For all the power, for all the force, for everything that was poured into Joe Higashi's most powerful technique, the wily Adon had finally found his opening. The moment the punch came, he did not sidestep. He did not try to dodge. No, he just charged in, right to Joe, threw his hands on his shoulders. And with that pivot, he hurled himself over Joe's shoulder, escaping the fatal blow. For those few seconds, there he balanced, hand standing on Joe's shoulders. For those few seconds, there he waited.

Anywhere else would have consumed Adon.

Hanging above Joe, Adon makes his landing behind him, keeping the grips on Joe's shoulders. Eeverything comes in slow motion now. Adon himself was acting on the pivot, the leverage from the deft evasion. And unless Joe could find a way to break free now... Adon would make his finishing throw.

And he would hurl the young martial overhead, straight into one of the two remaining corner posts of the ring.

"I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU ARE!!" Joe roars out, as he unleashes his mightiest onslaught. Every ounce of energy left within him is thrown into it, surging out in a great cyclonic assault that sends people in the ringside scattering. A great gouge is upon the stone perimeter, a scope of destruction that truly cements Joe as a contender in the Muay Thai world. He didn't get here out of luck; Hwa was always Adon's thorn, and he managed to defeat /him./
"Heh..." Only Joe knew exactly what had happened. He leaps upwards, allowing himself to be thrown and spiraling into a ball. Although half the ring is gone, the ropes on the other are still up; and he lands upon them heavily, allowing it to creak backwards. Lunging off, he rebounds after Adon, whirling around to catch him by the throat with a heel -- intent on SLAMMING him down upon the ground in the dillapidated ring's center. "JUST STAY DOWN... THE NEW GENERATION'S HERE! GET USED TO IT!!"

They were all powerful fighters.

Hwa Jai, Joe, King, and even Bruce Irvin were all the fierce contenders of Muay Thai. And all were fighting for the right to be the champion, in the wake of Sagat's loss. There was so much skill in this tier, so martial talent in play, that the distinctions fell on the subtle nuaces in the technique. Joe's flashy style and techique, against Adon's own brutal offense. Hwa Jai could very well have made it to this league... if he wasn't so dependent on foreign substances. Joe vs Adon was both nearly matched in skill.

But would Style or Substance win out?

Adon's coup de grace was blunted as Joe goes with the throw, and rebounding on the ropes, simply surges back. The legs come, and Adon, unable to muster even a dodge attempt at this point, throws up his arms to catch the heel. His leg nearly gives out again, as his whole body groans from the effort. "NEVER! I! ADON! THE EMPEROR OF MUAY THAI! AM THE GREATEST FIGHTER MUAY THAI HAS EVER SEEN!" Was the howl. And Adon shoves the leg off, and point blank, hurls himself. Launches point blank into a flying knee.

Aiming squarely for Joe's chest.

He can't even really get his arms up at this point, so much of his stamina utterly gone. "The greatest ever seen... IS SAGAT!!" Joe manages to use pure instinct; something it's easy to forget Adon is not the sole person to have. His upper body lunges backwards, the knee stopping just short of striking -- before he starts punching rapidly in the air, both arms at once. "HAAAAAAAA!!" He then unleashes a final uppercut, burst of wind going in all directions before he is forced to stumble into a bent turnbuckle to remain upright. He's never been this tired in his life... this Adon person is worse than a cockroach!!

He could.

Joe was exhausted. And Adon was... was beginning to feel the fatigue. But he wasn't feeling it like Joe. The Emperor of Muay Thai was defending his title to the last breath. Inspite of his flying knee being evaded, he lands squarely on both feet, turning to face his opponent. Sure, he calls Adon a joke. Sure, be belittles Adon's power. But saying Sagat was the greatest?

That was too much.

Adon begins deflecting the flurry of punches, sweeping his arms in perfect rhythm with Joe. "SAGAT is a LOSER! He is a FAILURE! He brought SHAME to ALL of MUAY THAI by SURRENDERING to that -RYU-!" Adon's sneer and crazed eyes burn into Joe, as the flawless defense continues. When the final uppercut comes, Adon shoves back against the arm, ducking low as he crouches. "If Sagat was so great, then why would he GIVE UP! Why would he bring shame to Muay Thai by working with, dare I say..."


And Adon fires straight up, before Joe has the change to recover from that uppercut. Or at least, try do. Adon rockets out with a thrusting knee, rising up into the air with the attack. Should it land squarely, Adon will hurl out the other knee, screaming at the top of his lunges to take Joe up with him.

Joe's got almost nothing left in the tank, be it defensively or offensively. He truly, genuinely expected his ultimate ace in the hole to strike down the other man, when he was barely standing in the first place. In normal circumstances, parrying that many of Joe's punches would be impossible, but they are sluggish and thrown without a crisp snap, making it easy to predict where they might go. "...!!" There's no immediate comment on that. Joe nearly ripped his hair out to see Sagat struck down trying to help up an opponent who wasn't even beat. Was that mercy, or arrogance? He'd say the latter.
"Wh... what... criminals? What are you..." Joe, and the rest of the world on television, likely has no idea what he's talking about. But they do know a painful looking impact with a knee, striking Joe in the chest, the second in the face. He crashes to the ground, breathing slow and heavily. But like some kind of zombie he manages to get back up, trembling before he leans back, exhaling deep.
"HURRICANE..." Then he staggers forward, eyes glinting as he manages to dig up enough chi for a violent, but brief, explosion of energy that surges into a tornado before himself. "UPPER!!!" This time he does fall to his knees, entire body covered in sweat, lead in his veins...!!

That comes with shriek as Adon begins to land from his rising assault. "The AGE of SAGAT is OVER!" The Muay Thai fighter howls, moving in sync with Joe's own movements. Joe was too slow now, too weak. And Adon, while erratic, simply refused to give up his titles, refused to give up his status. And while Joe was defending a title, in reality, Adon was defending one. He was now the Emperor of Muay Thai.

There could not be any Muay Thai greater than his.

"There will be no AGE of JOE!" Is the shrill scream as Adon slams his limb against Joe's own, just before the energy surges. With a pivot, the Emperor hurls himself into Joe's flank, standing tall as the blast of energy blows in a tornado where he once stood. The wind whipping at his boxers, those maniacal eyes of the jaguar stare down at Joe, as he falls to his knees. Adon draws back his fist, as his grin bares full fangs. "The only age that there will be... WILL BE THE AGE OF ADON! THE GREATEST WARRIOR OF ALL OF MUAY THAI!"

And Adon attacks.

He does not show mercy, like Sagat did brought to Ryu. No, he does what Sagat gave to him, Adon. His own protege. Adon unleashes the eight limbs of Muay Thai into the weakened Joe. He slams his arms, jabs his fists, stomps his feet, crushes his elbows, hammers his legs, and thrusts his knees. A wild, diverse assault, a dangerous assault. Every blows comes again before attempting the last blow, the only blow deserving for Joe.

A solid kick, straight into his bottom.

COMBATSYS: Adon successfully hits Joe with Jaguar Varied Assault EX.

"I LIVE FOR TOMORROW... THE JOE OF TOMORROW...!!" Joe exclaims, trying but failing to lift his arms. He just doesn't have the manic, suicidal willpower than Adon has. In terms of sheer short-term combative power, it's likely that Joe is the superior. But when it comes to the grueling endurance battle, both physical and mental, the tide shifted slowly but inexonerably back to the other man.
"Even if you... become the Emperor... what of... the UNOFFICIAL Emperor...?!"
The brutal onslaught tears into Joe, shutting him up but good. Blood and bruises erupt into being in the face of the ruthless attack. He'd be out like a light...
If not for that kick to the ass.
Sheer, ruthless impulse causes a last, flaming kick to be unleashed. It sweeps low, fast as a hurricane wind...
Aiming to slug Adon right between the legs, before he tumbles past and crashes to the broken ground, more unconscious than he's been since that time he got really, really drunk and challenged Sagat to a street Muay Thai battle. Oh yes. He got his respect for him the /hard/ way. And that way was also very, very painful.

COMBATSYS: Joe can no longer fight.

And the assault ends.

Adon just laughs, louder and louder, shriller and shriller. The screaming cackling reaches the peak, as finally, the last kick in the ass. The Jaguar of Muay Thai does not even look to see how he falls. He was broken. The Emperor raises his arms in the air. "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! I! ADON! HAVE DEFEATED THE PATHETIC JOE! I AM THE GREATEST! I AM THE MOST POWERFUL! I-"


That was the scream as Adon is suddenly, brutally, and finally kicked squarely into the gonads. The man fires high into the air, rocketing to the sky, before falling down into a heap. He fights. He struggles. He drags. Adon was writhing on the ground as he lands. "No.... NO!!" Was the whimpering as he finally reaches up into the air...

And collapses, face down into unconsciousness.

COMBATSYS: Adon JAGGA JAGGA JAGGA at a safe distance.

COMBATSYS: Adon can no longer fight.

Of course, things are called into a judgement by the Thailand's board of Muay Thai. Around the time that Joe put the crown on his ass, it was unanimously decided that Adon will retain his crown as the Emperor of Muay Thai and demanded to step down from his belt, despite being the technical victor. Reports indicate that 'those attempting to gain comment were only mooned to the point of supreme discomfort, at which point they left'. It seems in terms of attitude... there ARE worse people in the world than Sagat's dark disciple!
