SNF 2019.02 - SNF: Year of the Pig

[Toggle Names]

Description: Okuno is an up and comer in the Southtown Syndicate. Koto is a self-styled superhero, alias Mega Dragon Fighter J-Dragon. Both are hungry to make a name for themselves, so the SNF Committee has brought them together to showcase their strength and fortitude in a first-time ever Dan Dan Damage match. In order to win the match, each competitor must down at least one of the many bowls of volcano-hot noodles surrounding the fighting stage; even a knockout victory won't count, otherwise! Sharing nothing more than a desire to excel, a thug and a hero clash to decide which of them is brave enough to overcome adversity in all its forms!

Koto was no stranged to the SNF, but well... this was a strange one for him. The teenage high school student had never had spicy noodles like this before. And it was definitely something new to eat and fight at the same time.

Still, he had arrived to the cafe, coming in through the front and bowing to the owners as well as thanking them for putting the fight up there. It was always a good thing to be nice to the hosts, right?

Then moving to their stage, he had moved to a fighting stance and brought his left arm in front of him, sweeping it across slowly, "Heeenshin!"

And a nice big prismatic glow covers him before dispersing to leave the young teen in a costume more like out of some kid's show than anything else. He even did a move or two before bringing himself to face a camera and his left hand up, index and middle fingers extended with the thumb curled as a brief J glows, "Mega Dragon Fighter J-Dragon, ready!"

After saying that, he looks around, "So... who am I fighting? And probably dieing against with these noodles?"

Okuno has been in a bad mood ever since his fight with a literal zombie.

It wasn't the fact he was undead, no. It was the fact that he, a Yakuza enforcer, was thoroughly humiliated by a superior opponent. Though his Yakuza brothers tried to soothe his damaged ego, it didn't take away the sting of reality. That there were many, many foes out in the world stronger than he. It pissed him off to no end. The climb was going to be high, but the more angry he felt, the more determined he was to get better.

So maybe this SNF would offer some good training.

He practically bursts into the establishment. He's not wearing his typical suit - today he's wearing an orange tracksuit instead with white lines on the side of the pants and arms. His gold chain is prominently displayed around his neck. "OUTTA THE WAY! MOVE!" he yells as he shoves his way past restaraunt patrons and to the center, where tables have been moved out of the way but positioned for easy noodle access. He hooks his thumbs out of his pockets as he stares at Koto. " this shit for real?!" he barks. "I seriously gotta fight some kid in a costume?" He 'tsks' and bares his teeth. "How about you go back to your parents, kid, before I mess you up?"

Koto is probably scowling, even as he grabs a nearby bowl. "I will have you know I am at least in high school. What did you do? Drop out? Seriously, if you are in a bad mood now, I hope these do not do the same." He motions at the bowl of noodles. Fortunately his helmet has a bit of a mouth that he can use to slurp noodles. Seriously. That would make this awkward.

"Besides, you would not be the first one to 'mess me up' and it is a growing experience. I mean, I faced off with that big guy Abigail already and did not run. What makes you think I would from you?"

He looks Okuno over, then shakes his head, "Besides, the girl wanting to be red riding hood is scarier than some thug."

Okuno's brows twitch. A vein starts to pulsate on his forehead. He grits his teeth at Koto as his hands ball into fists. "You disrespectful little punk! You talk shit to me like you've been around, huh? And what's with that look?" He jerks his head at Koto. "Goddamn kids these days don't know their place..." He cracks his knuckles. "Don't worry though...I'll discipline you." He grins wickedly. "You're about to have the biggest 'growing experience' of all when I'm done with you."

He assumes a stance, both fists up, forward leg slightly bent. He stares down Koto, then suddenly jumps and spins around, aiming to smash his elbow onto the high schooler's head. "Haaaah!"

COMBATSYS: Koto blocks Okuno's Phoenix Elbow.

Okuno            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0             Koto

The incoming elbow is blocked from crushing the high schooler's head by a strong forearm. "Oh, nice! Not bad! Sorry about this!" He pushes back on the elbow, then the high schooler is stepping back as he brings his hands downward to his side, his stance loose and wide as he then swings both upwards, momentarily tossing the noodle bowl to the side as he unleashes what can only be called prismatic flames lashing out from both hands as they sweep upwards into a crossed arm position.

"Dragon Flame Swipe!" Afterwards, Koto backs away towards a bowl of noodles again, apparently thinking about getting one despite the fight having just started.

COMBATSYS: Koto successfully hits Okuno with Dragon Flame Swipe.

Okuno first mistake is figuring this would be easy. He is quickly proven wrong by the flaming cross-armed technique from the costumed youth coming at him suddenly. "What the-?!" He attempts to block, but he is clumsy, unrefined; the attack blows past his defense and slams the fiery hands into his chest and face, knocking him backwards several feet and knocking his expensive, yet gaudy, sunglasses off. He lands on a table and breaks it in half, staring dazed up at the cieling.

He gets back up, debris falling off his tracksuit. "What the way! No way a kid like you has that kind of power!" he yells in disbelief and anger. "What the...what the shit...WHAT?" His mind struggles to process this. His chest burns, his face aches. He turns to one of the noodle bowls and snatches it, promptly tearing into the contents with his chopsticks. They are delicious, despite the intense heat rushing through him. But he figures he needs all the help he can get now.

COMBATSYS: Okuno chews down those noodles like they are pathetic dweebs!

Okuno            0/-------/-======|==-----\-------\0             Koto

The costumed youth shrugs, "Hey, it happens. I just have a lot of stuff to toss out." Then he starts to chow down as well.

He manages a good bit of the bowl before coughing, "Wooo... okay, that is hot." Then he finishes the rest himself, coughing a bit. And his voice sounding a bit wheezy. "... we need to seriously hurt whoever thought this up, huh?"

COMBATSYS: Koto heroically devours an entire bowl of noodles!

Okuno            0/-------/-======|====---\-------\0             Koto

Okuno starts to sweat just from the one bowl, but the intense heat of the spices is forgotten as he gets even more furious by Koto's nonchalant attitude. "Right after I seriously hurt you, punk! I'm gonna show you how we handle thing in the Syndicate!" he roars. He rushes Koto, and throws his back leg out and over in a cartwheel kick. Flaming chi erupts across both legs as he tries to slam Koto with one leg, followed by the other, with as much force as he can muster.

COMBATSYS: Koto blocks Okuno's Phoenix Wings.

Okuno            0/-------/=======|======-\-------\0             Koto

The kick is met by prismatic surrounded arms. It's definitely not chi, but still it's enough to allow him to at least hold his ground even if he drops to a knee from the double leg impact. Even then, he pushes off to get the man away as he rises up, and brings his own leg forward. That prismatic glow seems to be surrounding his leg even as he does.

And whenever it swings, the sound like thunder comes out even as Koto wheezes out, "Thunder Kick!" The intense blaze of the prismatic energy is definitely telling that being hit by it may not be a good idea at all. Especially whenever it seems to live up to it's name!

COMBATSYS: Okuno blocks Koto's Thunder Kick.

Okuno            1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0             Koto

Okuno gasps as the brightly colored kick comes at him. This time he remembers to block worth a damn, and the thug crosses his arms as he absorbs the kick. The force is so much it forces him backwards, sliding on his expensive sneakers until he slams into a divider wall seperating the kitchen from the dining area. He groans as he drops his block. His arms feel like dead weights. He grits his teeth as sweat begins to pour down his face; the spicy noodles don't help. Speaking of which, he lunges for the nearest bowl like a starving dog, wolfing it down to try and get his strength back and dull the pain.

COMBATSYS: Okuno snarfs down noodles like a total badass!

Okuno            1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0             Koto

Grinning, Koto waits at least for the noodles to be wolfed down before he launches into the air. A brief image of a winged dragon's head is seen on the floor, before all that prismatic energy goes straight to the teenager's legs as he launches skywards.

Having recovered his voice some, Koto calls out, "Raijin Ryu!" Even as he comes down towards Okuno. The first leg comes down in a vicious looking axe kick, mimicing the earlier thunder kick and perhaps showing that the 'thunder god' name might not be out of place for it. The second kick comes as the costumed teenager backflips, almost mimicing a jaw bite to complete the dragon part as both prismatic legs aim to knock Okuno for a loop.

COMBATSYS: Okuno interrupts Raijin Ryu from Koto with Phoenix Flight.

Okuno            1/-======/=======|===----\-------\0             Koto

Broth splashes on Okuno's face as he slurps down noodles and tears into meat. He devours it like Saturn devouring his child. His hate-filled eyes fixate on the upstart youth who is displaying far greater power than he wanted to see. His desire to crush and maim and destroy overcomes the physical pain of the previous blows and the internal pain of the intense spice. The pain fuels his anger and keeps him going.

The audio cue helps him here. As Koto comes down, Okuno jumps upwards. A fiery aura erupts around his head as he briefly becomes a human comet. He plows his head straight into Koto's chest with as much forces as he can muster. Sure, the initial axe kick slams into his shoulder and dislocates it, sending fresh agony through him, but he mentally pushes past it as the two fall back to the ground. "Hrrrrngh...they call me 'Iron Head' Okuno. You just saw why. Keep that sentai shit at home!"

Giving an off as the teenager rolls to get away from the man... and grabs a bowl of noodles. "Huh. With a name like that, I would expect more than just flames. Sure you wouldn't want something like flame head, or I don't know, dragon head? Oh! Fireman. Nah..."

Koto shrugs, then downs his second bowl of noodles rather quickly before going back to a more rigid fighting stance. "And no mocking sentai, old man!"

COMBATSYS: Koto nobly slurps upon the noodles as if they were evildoers!

Okuno            1/-======/=======|=====--\-------\0             Koto

Koto's words have their predicted effect of making Okuno even angrier. "SHUT THE FUCK UP! I'M TWENTY FIVE!" His facial muscles tighten in fury. "DON'T TELL ME WHAT NICKNAME TO USE! ASSHOLE KID! YOU'RE DEAD! DEAD DEAD DEAD!"

Okuno is rapidly burning energy, but he ignores it. Too incensed to be rational, the thug makes to grab the costumed hero and hoist him up with both hands. Okuno's face is turning a bright red...and steam is rising off it too, like his blood was literally boiling. "HHhrrrrrrAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!" He SCREAMS this as he rears his head all the way back. A glowing hot point seems to form on his forehead. He slams his head forward at Koto's helmet. If it impact, a huge explosion of fiery chi erupts from the point of detonation, scattering loose items off tables and even shattering a window.

COMBATSYS: Okuno successfully hits Koto with Atomic Skull.

Okuno            0/-------/----===|======-\-------\0             Koto

The force of the head butt has Koto reeling even as he brings a hand up to his head. "... explosive head, maybe...?" The teen drawls out. Coughing a bit as he seems to be having trouble standing. With his balance in question, all he can do now is throw a wicked looking cross punch as he settles into a wider stance.

COMBATSYS: Koto successfully hits Okuno with Cross Punch.

Okuno            0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\0             Koto

Okuno is exhausted after that attack. Still angry, but much of the red faced fury has dissipated with the explosion. Leaving him a little more focused - but perhaps it is too late now? His sloppy stance hurts him again as Koto's punch smashes into the side of his face before he can properly guard, sending spit flying from his mouth as he twists and falls to the side, smashing into a chair and breaking it. He grunts, blood trickling from his mouth as a red welt that will soon become a purple bruise is etched into his cheek.

"Why the hell are you still standing? What gives? SHIT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!" The thug's small worldview is being challenged again, and he doesn't like it. He can barely lift his arms. But there's more noodles. Like a dying man he goes for more, practically shoving his face into the bowl to devour the contents and hopefully get some strength back.

The teenager shrugs. "Eh... I'm just tough like that." And well... hey! More noodles sounds good. Maybe Koto's out of it, or he got used to it...

But he daringly picks up a bowl, and pours the entire damn thing down his throat it seems. What the hell? He belches a small prismatic fireball afterwards, "Woo... that is pretty good... might be the knock to the head, though!"

COMBATSYS: Koto nobly slurps upon the noodles as if they were evildoers!

Okuno            0/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1             Koto

"I'm gonna cave in your goddamn skull," Okuno growls in between bites. He hates this kid. He hates the costume, the nonchalant attitude, the fact he seems to handle noodles better, but most of all he hates the disrespect. In Okuno's mind, he deserves respect from anyone he considers beneath him. Which is pretty much all non-Syndicate individuals. This cannot stand!

He throws his empty bowl at the nearest wall, and he's already attacking Koto. First, he aims to clinch the youth and start repeatedly kneeing him in the stomach. Then he lets go...but keeps attacking! As soon as the knee strikes end, he leaps up to superman punch him right in the side of the head. "RRAAAAAAH!" Okuno brims with energy and burning spice, eyes watering, nose running, blood pumping.

COMBATSYS: Okuno blitzes into action and acts again!

Finding himself suddenly getting kneed repeatedly, Koto does his best to take them as he tries to get the man off of him. And once the knees end... his hand comes up to block the incoming superman punch as well as spin away. His hands are already glowing as more of the sentai movemnt is obvious, and he hops back a good step before landing and taking aim at Okuno.

Both hands cross before him at the waist, then slide up into a plus formation. If Okuno has seen any sentai, he might recognize it as a finisher style move from a popular red and silver suited series of heroes. Koto's is no different, only maybe a bit more flashy, "AURORA BURST!"

And probably going to destroy a wall judging by the size of the prismatic beam launched at Okuno if it misses.

COMBATSYS: Okuno blocks Koto's Aurora Burst.

Okuno            1/-----==/=======|====---\-------\0             Koto

Okuno, like many boys growing up, has seen plenty of sentai shows. After his barrage leaves him panting and grunting, his eyes widen as Koto assumes his stance. "N-No way! You're not seriously...ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT ATTACK?!"

The thug is smacked directly by the cross pattern energy, which carries him backwards with a sudden scream as he smashes through a window, falling onto the pavement amid shattered glass. His tracksuit is sizzling. He struggles to lift his head. "" he chokes out, then collapses unconscious.

COMBATSYS: Okuno takes no action.

Koto blinks a few times. Then shrugs, untransforming and moving to get some water now. 'Cause... yeah. SPICY VOLCANO NOODLES!
