Neo League 101 - #108: Kensou vs Dan

Description: Atop Mount Rushmore, Sie Kensou of the Psycho Soldiers and the master of Saikyo-ryuu, Dan Hibiki, face off for a legendary battle! Gigantic stone presidential heads play host to a clash of the titans! Dan teaches Kensou the true power of friendship, and Kensou teaches Dan the true power... Of the Bun. (Winner: Kensou)

Dan Hibiki, stares up at the faces of the famous US presidents from his position at the bottom of the mountain. He looks at the league organizer a bit confusedly before pointing up at the heads, "So, are we fighting on those foreheads or in front of those foreheads. Because it looks a little dangerous up there. Not that I'm concerned with my own safety, since I'm obviously able to take all challengers ever invented. But what about the other guy? He could fall to his death and that would be a sad day, you know?"

Don't be such a wuss, Dan Hibiki! As it so happens, they're supposed to be fighting /on top/ of the monument, otherwise it's hardly all that spectacular, is it? No doubt the League organiser will tell the great master of Saikyo-ryuu this; meanwhile, the camera equipment and all is ready, and they even have a helicopter to make sure they catch all the action. It's a time for action, indeed... Not to mention adventure, and excitement. So, where's Dan's opponent?

Actually, Sie Kensou is already up there, where they're supposed to be fighting, peering down from the top of Thomas Jefferson's head. "Wow, that's... Heh... That's a long way down," the Chinese fighter says, with a bit of a sheepish laugh, straightening up and turning around. "You sure this is safe?" he calls over to the League official who'll be refereeing the match, who flashes the Psycho Soldier a thumbs up. Oh yeah, that's reassuring. Now, he just needs to wait for his opponent.

Dan scratches his nose, "So.. up there. Right. Well. Let's do it then!" As he's lead into a helicopter, he is lifted to the top of the monument, down onto Washington. Where he looks over the side himself.
"Huh." Looking over towards Jefferson's head, he waves at Kensou, and shouts, "Hey there! I'll be your opponent." putting his other hand over his eyes and squinting to see who he's fighting, "Did you get any more serious since our last fight? I see you over there! Hey! Hi! Are you going to give it your all today, junk-food muncher?"

Oh, crap, it's that guy again! Kensou looks over at Dan, giving a faint start in surprise when he sees who he's up against. "Hey, don't worry 'bout me," he calls back. I'm gonna give ya everythin' I've got!!" Oh yeah, he's gonna take this seriously! And he's gonna take you DOWN, Dan Hibiki! He stays atop Jefferson's mighty cranium while slipping into his fighting stance, looking at his opponent atop Washington. "So, why don'tcha come at me with everythin' /you've/ got, whenever you're ready!" And the boy keeps his eyes on the older, more experienced fighter, clearly wary of the might of Saikyo-ryuu.

Dan              0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Kensou

Dan Hibiki, always one aiming to please, takes a run down the slope of Washington's wig, and leaps across the tiny gap between the two founding fathers. As he's in the air he spins his body around bringing the gained momentum into his foot, and snapping one of his famous aerial roundhouses off towards Kensou,
"It's DAN DAN KICK time once again! Feast upon the fury of my ferocious feet!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou fails to interrupt Dankuu Kyaku from Dan with Ryuu Sougeki.

Dan              0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0           Kensou

/HOLY CRAP/! Kensou thinks he has the perfect solution for Dan's attack, taking a few running steps forward to then leap at the Saikyo master, trying to meet him halfway... But his own attack is forestalled by Dan's striking home, battering the Psycho Soldier and sending him crashing back down to the top of Jefferson's head. "Guh!!" exclaims the psion as he hits, getting to his feet in a rather wobbly fashion. "A'ight... That was pretty good."

Dan lands in his own little way and does a little bit of a Saikyo Jig behind Kensou, before turning around and pointing, "Now that's what I like to call Saikyo STYLE!"
After rubbing it in Kensou's face that he just got belted by the brunt of a Saikyo tactic, Dan goes easy on the Psycho Soldier for this round, going low to the ground, and giving a broad sweeping kick towards the legs. Your classic street fighter jump-in and sweep pattern.
Stupid pattern.

COMBATSYS: Kensou blocks Dan's Heavy Kick.

Dan              0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0           Kensou

This has not been an auspicious beginning for this particular fight, has it? No sir, not at all. Kensou does, however, manage to deal with Dan's next attack, dropping to one knee to block the brunt of the sweep; it still hurts, sure, but not as much as it might've. "Not so fast!" the youth declares, before he just hauls off and tries to punch Dan right in the face. "Hyaa-!" Nothing fancy, not really much finesse or technique behind it. Sometimes, a punch is just a punch!

COMBATSYS: Kensou successfully hits Dan with Strong Punch.

Dan              0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0           Kensou

Dan's face moves out of the impact zone, bringing his chest into view, as he tries to pull his shoulder up to take Kensou's blow. His shoulder was prepared. His chest was not, especially since right under Kensou's fist is one of Dan's sharpies. It explodes beneath Kensou's hand, causing the ink to leak out of it and create an rorshach test all over the front of his Gi.
Shaking his fist quasi-angrily, he sends it forward, trying to give Kensou a lighter taste of his own medicine.

COMBATSYS: Dan successfully hits Kensou with Quick Punch.

Dan              0/-------/--=====|======-\-------\0           Kensou

Trying to get out of the way of Dan's punch... Not so successful! The Psycho Soldier instead gets hit, stumbling back a bit, and WHOA HEY THERE'S THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF, leaving the poor guy windmilling his arms before he twists around and thrusts out his right heel at Dan, a straight kick aimed at the Saikyo fighter's gut. "Yaa-!!" So far, this really isn't going so well for Kensou!

COMBATSYS: Dan blocks Kensou's Light Kick.

Dan              0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0           Kensou

Dan throws his hand down quickly to the incoming stomach kick, raising his other finger and wagging it like a metronome, "Ah ah ah. Kicking people in the stomach on famous people's heads isn't nice. I thought you said you'd gotten more serious about things. Focus on the fight. Put your mind into it. I don't want to lose, but I don't want you to lose either. Even though that's what's going to happen if you don't start taking things seriously!"
The wagging finger shoots forward, snapping quickly to try and latch onto one of Kensou's shoulders, and give him a nice toss. One aimed towards the safety of the back of Jefferson's head, he's not a murderer.

COMBATSYS: Dan successfully hits Kensou with Quick Throw.

Dan              0/-------/-======|=======\-------\1           Kensou

You know, Kensou /had/ thought he'd gotten more serious about it, but this is just... Depressing! He's getting tossed around pretty easily by Dan, and case in point would be when he gets /literally/ tossed around, hurled across Jefferson's head, landing a bit badly and rolling before getting to his feet. "Okay... Looks like I'm really gonna havta get serious!" he declares, reaching behind his back and producing... A meat bun! Which he immediately starts chowing down on, lest Dan get any funny ideas about it.

With that, Dan begins running towards Kensou, and from behind his hip his hand snaps forward, letting off the putt-putt fireball he's been renowned for.

Ahhh! Kensou finishes the bun, licking crumbs off of his fingers, and... All the visible bruising from the fight fades away, leaving him looking revitalised, full of energy and vigour! "OKAY!! Now it's TOTALLY ON, MR. HIBIKI!" Speaking of whom, here comes the Saikyo-ryuu master, trying to chi blast poor Kensou! What's a guy to do? Well, he brings his hands up in front of his face, gathering power for a moment, before he sweeps his hands back /out/, launching a blue-tinged white sphere of crackling Psycho Power at Dan, annihilating the Gadouken and continuing towards Dan himself! "Choukyuudan!!"

COMBATSYS: Dan slows Choukyuu Dan from Kensou with Premium Sign.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Dan              1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0           Kensou

Dan's momentum suddenly stops as he sees the energy coming back towards him. It's now that he reaches into the right side of his GI and gropes around, blinking slightly before looking down at the lining. He see's a house in black ink. That completely doesn't help him.
Thinking quickly, he reaches into the left side, and pulls out a picture, hiding his face behind it, as the energy slaps into it.

YEAH! That's right! Kensou starts looking more confident now, perhaps he's gotten into his 'groove'? Perhaps! "But we ain't done yet!" the youth declares, rushing right at Dan and trying to grab the picture-hiding fighter by the front of his gi for a simple hip-toss, to deposit Hibiki on the top of Jefferson's head! Woe are the other presidential busts, not getting any love at all. Perhaps they'll have to move around more. "Hup-!!"

COMBATSYS: Dan endures Kensou's Quick Throw.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Dan              1/-----==/=======|=------\-------\0           Kensou

Dan sets his weight firmly, and becomes a seemingly immovable object to Kensou. His eyes narrowing as he pokes forward at Kensou's forehead, not offensively, not attackingly, but in a bit of a chiding, taunting manner, "What is this, hug Dan Hibiki day? Get off of me kid, you bother me!"
To emphasize this, Dan grips with his other hand at Kensou's shoulder again, and tries to fling him to that one guy between Jefferson and Lincoln. You know.. that guy...he did something in spain? Something all Roosevelty? YEAH! THAT GUY!

COMBATSYS: Kensou interrupts Seoi Nage from Dan with Sunda.

Dan              1/=======/=======|===----\-------\0           Kensou

So, okay, Kensou gets thrown... Sort of. There's just one tiny little complication involved, you see; his hand taps against Dan's chest as he's getting flung, and so while the Psycho Soldier might get thrown over at Roosevelt, the Saikyo master is struck right in the chest by a blast of Psycho Power, the energy hurling Dan away with the force of getting hit by a /damn car/, to hit the side of Washington's head! Oh, the disrespect to various presidential figures! Worse still, Kensou manages to control his landing on Roosevelt's noggin, landing on his feet and skidding backwards in a crouch. "Too slow, Mr. Hibiki!" he calls out.

Dan slides down the side of Washington's wig, tumbling to a flat part between Washington and Jefferson, before he finally stands up, and looks at Kensou. This is when he breaks into a run, hopping the small gap between Washington and Jefferson, before hopping onto Roosevelt's head and pointing at Kensou, "You're a tricky trickster! You also eat during fights. Do you think life is a game? What are you going to do with your life?" All of this is asked, while both of Dan's hand's slide behind him. Then. They come forward.

COMBATSYS: Kensou dodges Dan's Shinkuu Gadouken.

Dan              0/-------/-======|===----\-------\0           Kensou

"Well, what's the point of livin' if ya don't enjoy it any?" wonders Kensou, tilting his head. Why does Dan have to be so serious? Why can't he enjoy himself a little? These are all important questions, with answers the world may never know! And then /oh crap/, that's probably not good. Anything with 'Shinkuu' in its name tends to hurt a lot, in Kensou's experience. Which would be why he jumps /over/ it, leaping in a graceful, acrobatic arc over Dan's head, twisting and flipping to land on his feet behind the Saikyo-ryuu master, and then swinging his foot at the back of Dan's head. "Hyaa-!!"

COMBATSYS: Dan fails to interrupt Light Kick from Kensou with Kouryuken.

[                        \\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Dan              0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0           Kensou

Dan corkscrews down in an attempt to belay that boot to the head, but it doesn't really matter does it. As he launches himself upwards to try and intercept Kensou in the air as he moves, he looks behind him, just in time to seem himself get kicked in the ass.
Well, what happens next is that he falls to the stone head of Roosevelt, face-first. Groin-first too.
I don't know if you've ever slammed your groin into a driveway but it hurts more than you can imagine if you haven't.

Well, that looks like it probably hurt. "Uh... You all right there, Mr. Hibiki?" wonders Kensou, as he crouches down a little in his stance. Of course, he's not leaving any huge openings, because that would be kind of dumb of him... Instead, he focuses his energies, starting to draw on his reserves of Psycho Power. After all, if Dan's not unconscious, there's no /telling/ what surprises he could still have in store for the younger fighter!

COMBATSYS: Kensou gathers his will.

[                        \\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Dan              0/-------/=======|=======\-------\0           Kensou

Dan pushes himself up from the stone and looks to Kensou, before looking down at Roosevelt. He rubs the head of Teddy for luck, and says, "Oh dear Roosevelt, who did bring America a New Deal, bring me the strength to beat this Junk food eating young hooligan, so that he may know what fighting is all about."
And so Dan turns towards Kensou, and sends out a quick snap kick towards the will gathering fighter.

COMBATSYS: Kensou blocks Dan's Light Kick.

[                        \\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Dan              1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1           Kensou

HOOLIGAN?! Kensou should be offended! But instead, he grits his teeth and gets his arms in the way of Dan's snap kick, which ultimately means it doesn't hurt as much as he was probably intending it to. "Not yet!" he declares, shoving forward with his blocking forearms to try and put Dan off-balance, lunging forward at the Saikyo master with his right hand extended, palm open. His left hand braces against his upper right arm, and if he gets close enough...!

COMBATSYS: Dan blocks Kensou's Senki Hakkei.

[                           \\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Dan              1/-----==/=======|-------\-------\0           Kensou

...He gets close enough, but not quite it seems; a spherical blast of blue-tinged white, as big as Kensou himself, erupts in the space in front of him, where Dan /should/ be, but apparently... Isn't, quite. "Haaaa--!!" The blast nevertheless lasts for a few long moments before Kensou loses control of it, the force of the sphere bursting then /shoving/ anyone around it - like, say, Kensou and Dan - back a few steps, the Psycho Soldier's right palm smoking faintly. "Tch..."

Dan raises his hand up and says, "That's... That's a pretty good technique, completely missing with your own attack and knocking yourself around. What school did they teach you that in, the school of crazy bad martial arts?" He shakes his head, "It's like your sensei is a drunk!"
Dan continues to complain, and doesn't do a damn thing but that. Sending various barbs and insults in Kensou's direction. A last ditch effort on Dan's part? Let's hope not!

COMBATSYS: Dan has reached second wind!

Oh... Oh man, Dan. What did you do? WHAT DID YOU DO, DAN HIBIKI?! "Y-you...!!" Kensou is not enjoying being taunted by the Pink Wonder, it seems! He seethes, he shakes, and then he lunges right at Dan, leaping into the air and twisting around in an attempt to boot the Saikyo-ryuu fighter right in the head. "NOBODY CALLS MY TEACHER A DRUNK BUT ME!!" So there!

COMBATSYS: Dan dodges Kensou's Heavy Kick.

[                           \\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Dan              0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0           Kensou

Dan ducks as if the entire world has slowed down and he just noticed an errant penny on the floor. He's in his zen place, calm and unconcerned with the cares of the world, and most importantly with the cares of Sie Kensou, letting the aerial man sail past him.
As he stands up and turns around, he reaches his hand out towards Kensou's back, it's clenched fist already glowing with the cyan flame of the inner Saikyo spirit. And like the slow motion doves released in a mafioso movie before a major shoot-out starts, so is the Gadouken. Tender. Joyful. Little. Peaceful. It is Zen. All things lead to Dan Hibiki.

COMBATSYS: Kensou overcomes Gadouken from Dan with Choukyuu Dan.

Nuts! Oh man, what would Chin say, if he saw Kensou now? Probably something about how he shouldn't let his anger get the better of him, but LOOK AT THAT DAN GUY, and all the mean things that he says! Hurtful, evil man. But Kensou seems to have let out most of his reckless anger in that kick, because even though Dan's trying to attack him from behind, the Psycho Soldier is in time to whirl around and lob another crackling sphere of blue-white Psycho Power at his opponent, obliterating the Gadouken a second time. "Uryaa-!!"

COMBATSYS: Dan endures Kensou's Choukyuu Dan.

Dan              0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0           Kensou

Dan looks completely out of the loop as he brings his face into the energy, and pretends to wash his face with it.
Okay, so that probably wasn't the best idea, but at least it snaps him out of his crazy unconcious funk he'd been wandering around in. Snapping his eyes open, he looks to Kensou, and sends a quick fist out towards the fighter. He was doing so well earlier. It's all that damn meat bun's fault!

COMBATSYS: Dan can no longer fight.

It IS all that bun's fault. It was revitalising. Delicious! A mighty bun, indeed. Dan's punch might seem speedy to the attacker, but to Kensou? It's moving slow, man! It's pretty easy to step and duck out of the way of the attack, letting the mometum carry Dan past... But Kensou will try and catch the guy if it looks like he might fall right off of Roosevelt. Because, you know, this isn't the game for fatalities.

Dan falls fat on his face and giggles like a drunk into the stone hair of Theodore Roosevelt.

Since Dan is safe, Kensou will content himself with standing there, and stretching his arms over his head. "Fuuaa," the /victorious/ Psycho Soldier breathes out, while the League official counts... Is Dan going to get up? Apparently not, which is what results in Sie Kensou being declared the winner of this particular League matchup! "Sorry 'bout that, Mr. Hibiki, but ya did tell me t' take it seriously," he tells the probably unconscious man, before starting over to where the film crew is. He needs something to eat!

COMBATSYS: Kensou has ended the fight here.
