Description: In a seedy underground fighting cage tucked away somewhere in glorious Spain, Poison finds herself facing off with an actual for real god damn bear to claim her spot in the Rising Star Tournament. Seriously, who even makes these rules? Surely this must be cheating.
Poison shows up for the scheduled fight with...a fucking bear? Had to be a joke, either that or Kanzuki was insane, which was fine with her. Who knows, maybe if she can tame a bear, it could be a great gimmick for her wrestling stable. As expected, Poison shows up in her usual skimpy getup, pink heels, scandalous daisy dukes that she didn't even bother to button up, and a tiny white tanktop that leaves little to the imagination. She does, however, has quite the chain decorated officer's hat, and a black spiked collar around her neck. At least her long pink hair provides some cover, more than her clothes do at least.
"The star is here...we can get started, ok?"
COMBATSYS: Poison has started a fight here.
The bear in question is big even for one of his kind, his great shaggy form taking up nearly a fourth of the cage as he hunches low in one corner. But despite all that he doesn't look like a very mean bear, his fuzzy ears just so pettable, eyes large and dark. He seems like the kind of bear a person could trust in a dark alley, very much unlike the pink-haired woman getting ready across from him.
"Gruuuuh. Hrrgh grah Raaaah."
The shottily made cage seems to vibrate with the sound of the big lug's grumbling groans, a few members of the crowd edging away as they realize a thin barrier of metal might not be quite enough. They'd probably be less scared if they could speak bear, comforted to know that he is merely expressing a calm and collected concern that perhaps this fighting venue isn't up to code for a bear of his size and weight. But, unfortunately, nobody here speaks bear.
COMBATSYS: Kuma has joined the fight here.

Poison 0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0 Kuma
"Who the fuck been feeding a bear steroids...?" Poison groans as she sees Kuma, the bear she has to face, which she can swear has to be a jacked bear. Poison reaches to her side, where her trusty bullwhip dangles, just testing how quickly she can reach it, "I've never been an animal trainer before, but I can learn!"
Lifting his great shaggy head, Kuma eyes Poison with some interest as she complements him on his size. "Grrruh Raaarg Garrruh." he replies, lumbering up to all fours as the official Kanzuki representative readies the little gong that will sound the start of this match. Surely this will be a good, clean fight.
And then Kuma notices her reaching for a whip. The shouting remark about animal taming is almost an afterthought as his happy bear face droops into a sad bear face, then lips pull back into a very different face. No, it is not happy, or sad. Poison gets a first-row look at Kuma's mad bear face as he comes charging out of the corner, all 1,200 pounds of him rolling forward like a living avalanche as his left paw comes up, then swings down in a batting swipe that could cave in the skull of a moose.
At least the claws aren't out. He's upset, not a jerk.

Poison sees the bear charging at her, and all of a sudden, the fact she's fighting a bear and not a human becomes very very real. "Holy fuck! Who sanctioned this bullshit?" She cries out, but being relatively quick on her feet with her wrestling experience, she anticipates and side-steps at the last moment, using all of her considerably lesser weight to try and push the charging bear, and using his own moment to throw him down, hopefully face first. "Down boy!"

Poison 0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0 Kuma
Rather than smashing the sassy pink-haired woman flat, Kuma's paw impacts the cage behind where Poison had been just moments before, causing the entire structure to lurch and groan as the old upright braces are bent outwards into a shallow crater. It is at about that time that small hands shove hard against his hairy back and he is forced to drop back down to all fours, squaring off and preventing himself from being moved through sheer stubborn bigness.
The low, chesty rumble that escapes the big animal is not one bears of his kind are normally known to make. Still, when something growls at you, it's usually pretty clear you're in trouble, and that is certainly the case here.
Shoving off from the ground with his front paws, Kuma rises up and up onto his back feet, looming twice the height of a big man. So tall is he that his fuzzy ears brush the top of the cage as he turns to peer down at Poison. Then, perhaps surprisingly, he brings his paws up into a stubby boxing stance. Swaying his weight to one side he hooks his left paw down at her in an opening smash, before leaning way down and swiping his right up to try and clobber her backward into the air with a very beary uppercut.
Some mad man has taught this bear how to box.

Poison 0/-------/--=====|==-----\-------\0 Kuma
Poison takes a moment to look at the crowd, snorting, "someone should really do maintenance on this stupid cage, this place is falling apart, I'd expect way more from the Kanzuki family...maybe I should offer them some charity? Poor souls..." but her moment of talking to the crowd, means Kuma gets in position uncontested, and all of a sudden she finds him looming over her. "Oh for fuck's sake, I'm used to dealing with big lugs, you're not going to intimidate me, stupid bear!" She hisses, and as he takes a peculiar attempt to box with her, she turns as if to flee and create distance, only suddenly her heeled leg arcs upwards with a powerful kick towards Kuma's chin, or at hig chest, because she might just not make it to his chin. Annnnd, looks like she not only missed his chin, but actually bears work different from humans, and what she thought would stun him, barely does any damage as she gets to eat a heck of a punch that throws her to the ground, writhing in pain, "fuck me that bear can hit!"
Kuma's eyes widen with surprise as he finds his measured boxing approach quickly turning against him. It is only by luck and size that his paw ploughs into the scantily clad girl before her heel can do more than brush his fur, knocking her tumbling to the ground and saving him from a potentially shocking experience. Still, she took that hit pretty hard, and she hasn't used that whip on him yet, so...
The ground beneath Poison quivers under the weight of Kuma's paws when he drops back down to all fours, ambling forward with a tilt of his head to peer down at the writhing girl. Is she alright? Did he break her?
One massive paw lifts, reaches out, and swats lightly at her side, attempting to tumble her lightly off across the ground. Maybe that will help? He has no idea, he's just a bear.

Poison suddenly rolls to move in a firm motion to block the bear's paw, grunting as she winds up feeling his force and likely cutting herself on his claws in the process, but fueled by rage, she lashes right at him and starts slapping his face with fury, before trying to deliver one powerful smack to force a distance from her, "get away from me, stupid bear!"
COMBATSYS: Kuma endures Poison's Slapshot.

Poison 0/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0 Kuma
Kuma has been enough of a gentleman to try and keep his claws out of the way for this match, but they are quite big claws for a quite big bear, and there is only so much he can do. So when the razor-sharp tip of one nicks Poison's upper arm, he roars a bearish groan of apology, dragging his paw away and rearing back in concern.
Unwittingly opening himself right up for a flurry of enraged slaps as the woman comes up off the floor and into his personal space, smacking at his big wet nose and fluffy cheeks, forcing him to shake his head and open his fang-filled mouth wide in a grumble of bearish betrayal.
He was just trying to be nice!
The last slap catches him under the jaw and clicks his fangs together, causing him to rear up on his hind paws in surprise and outrage. That hurt! And He's Not Stupid!
The thunderous bellow sets the walls to shaking, hot air blasting over Poison as the grumpy beast looms over her. Swiping out with one massive mitt, he attempts to hook his claws through her tank top and pluck her off of her feet, swinging her wildly through the air before releasing her to tumble off toward the corner of the cage a good 7 feet above the ground.
COMBATSYS: Poison endures Kuma's Medium Hurl.

Poison 1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0 Kuma
Poison keeps slapping Kuma angrily, until he finally takes advantage of his strength and size, and while shredding her tank top a bit in the process, good thing she's not concerned about her modesty. Also, turns out she is wearing a bra under that thing, a shocking pink one. As she gets tossed in the air, she seems to use it to gain distance from Kuma, somehow landing perfectly on her heels, and proceeding to taunt the bear by blowing him a big ol' kiss, only turns out she's not called Poison Kiss for no reason, that kiss is actually very real, in the form of a pink heart shaped chi projectile flying towards Kuma.

Poison 0/-------/------=|=======\-------\1 Kuma
Staring reproachfully after Poison's tumbling form, Kuma has a front row seat to the exposure of a frighteningly pink bra, which he doesn't really notice because he's a bear, and the acrobatic landing that leaves her square on her feet and ready to hurt him some more. A plan she goes executes by...blowing a funny pink thing at him?
This confuses the bear.
Unsure of what to do but not having enough time to lumber out of the way, Kuma does what any good bear would do.
The massive ursine impacts the floor butt first, plopping down into a sit before hunching double and hiding his head beneath his upraised paws. Thus braced in the Ready Position, he remains huddled their as the deadly heart crashes into his bowed shoulders, exploding in a puff of burning chi.
A moment goes by.
One black eye peers cautiously out from between his claws, checking to make sure the coast is clear.
Back still smoldering, Kuma lumbers back to all fours and charges toward the woman who burned him, lowering his mighty head and attempting to ram the heavy thing squarely into her torso.

Poison braces herself as the bear lumbers at her in a charge, and while she's tough as nails, and doesn't scare from anyone, turns out you can't intimidate a bear by being a fearless, she gets smacked silly, and knocked back quite a distance. She looks to be struggling, but there's a passion in her eyes, as she lets out a much shriller growl compared to the bear "you think you're the only one who can play tough!? YAAAARRR!!!" She growls at him as loud as she can manage, before moving on to dirty stuff, taking a molotov out of no where and tossing it at the bear, and not giving him time to rest, as she immediately follows suit by finally reaching for her whip and cracking a few lashes in succession, "down boy! DOWN! DOWN I SAY!"

Poison 1/--=====/=======|=======\=======\1 Kuma
There is a look of wide-eyed bafflement on Kuma's face as Poison stands her ground, accepting the butting impact of his head and being sent tumbling away straight through the crummy wiring of their cage. Sliding to a halt, the lovable beast glances first one way, then the other, checking to make sure he isn't the only one who just saw that happen.
Maybe...Maybe she thinks she is a bear too?
This theory is confirmed a moment later when the pink-haired girl rises with a growl, sparking a warm glow of approval deep within Kuma's brave bear heart. He has done a great thing today. He has converted someone into a bea--
Kuma has no idea from where Poison managed to pull the thing, but there is suddenly a happily burning bottle of sparkling glass soaring through the air toward him. Caught up in watching the flickering flames, he is caught completely off guard when the bottle smashes against the cage and sends flaming liquid pouring through to douse his shaggy fur.
Letting out a growling roar that shakes the room, Kuma rampages forward, smashing through the flimsy cage as if it weren't there. Stomping his way toward his pink-haired tormentor, he takes the first lash square across the face, and the second across his shoulder as he begins to rear up. The third, fourth, and fifth slash across his shaggy belly as he lumbers forward, right paw rearing up and back with menacing intent.
The paw falls with frightening speed and power, attempting to smash down atop the scrappy girl and daze her just long enough for the hulking bear to swing his bulk around, 1,200 pounds of animal crashing into her as he attempts to plop right down atop her in a bearish sit, driving her to the ground and trapping her there beneath his great weight.

Poison 2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=====--\-------\0 Kuma
Poison was sure that magic combination of fire and raging whip lashes would cause the bear to back off, finally, but that stupid creature is charging right at her. "WHY DON'T YOU FEAR FIRE YOU STUPID BEAR!" She whines in frustration, oh how she wishes Hugo was here to intervene, that damned lug. Instead she's left to fend for herself against a raging bear, and she does her best to use her whip strikes to try and block the bear's attack, likely mitigating some of the damage in the process, but she's certainly taking a beating. Barely able to stand straight, she growls even louder, pink energy surging from her as she really uses her wrist to send some powerful whip strikes that send energy projectile shaped like crescent moons at Kuma, but not stopping there, she leaps into the air to bring down a powerful axe kick to the head of Kuma, attempting to land in a way that would allow her to straddle his head, before flipping over and using the grip of her thighs around his head to try and send him flying to the ground. Should that succeed, she'll finish with a rushing kick to his stupid head! Because that bear is beating her, and she can't have that, "STAY THE FUCK DOWN! BEAR!"

Poison 1/------</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0 Kuma
Though the paw smash was at least a partial success, the wily street fighter is far too quick for him to sit on. Still on fire, angry, and now pretty sure that he didn't convert Poison into a bear after all, the huge animal does the only thing he knows to do in this situation.
Stop, allowing Poison's whipped energy moons to smash repeatedly into his shaggy smoldering bulk.
Drop, inadvertently falling out of range of the spiteful woman's stomping kick and thigh grab.
Thudding to the ground in a curled ball, the huge bear tumbles himself forward, crashing into Poison mid tantrum and rolling right over her. But he doesn't stop there, continuing forward to crash through tables, benches, chairs and drink carts, sending bits of food and furniture flying in all directions as he rolls and rolls until the burning embers in his coat have finally gone out. Only then does he lumber back upright and stumble sideways a bit dizzily, huffing out a heavy bearish breath.
Posion doesn't get her way, when the bear not only endures her all manner of reckless flailing attacks, but actually winds up rolling powerfully into her as she tries her flipping maneuver, her kick missing entirely. She barely makes it to her feet after the bear rolls onwards, and through gritted teeth hisses, "...I will not lose to a filthy animal!!!" She stumbles forward, firming her grip on her whip, she goes for one more array of strikes without mercy, "...stupid, ugly, bear!" She's not happy, but towards the end of her last ditch furious attack, it's clear she's got nothing left, as she just collapses in defeat.

Giving his shaggy head a shake to chase away the swimminess, Kuma hears Poison coming long before he sees her. dark eyes glance sadly about as she calls him filthy, then stupid, AND ugly.
Lumbering around to face her, the upright beast meets flailing with flailing, a deep groan of protest roaring from him as he bats at the painful lashes of the whip. Eventually catching it, he stomps it down under paw and roars his displeasure toward the collapsing girl, large flecks of smelly bear spit splattering across her.
There might be a slight note of exasperation in the bear's final grunt as he stares down at the fallen woman, eventually tramping forward off of her whip and lumbering away to find a pot of honey.
It's been a long day.
COMBATSYS: Kuma has ended the fight here.
