Neo League 426 - #449: Balrog vs Guile

Description: Balrog and Guile face off on the roof of a bar in London, England. Things go quite badly for Guile until a touch of luck kicks in, but not enough to save the day. (Winner: Balrog)

It's night time in foggy London, and Balrog waits upon a rooftop, examining the cold metal gleam of his claw. He waits for his foe, the gentle London breeze blowing fog past and causing his purple and gold pants to billow slightly. Cameras are set up around the roof, and a rollocking group of patrons in the bar down stairs watches the action through them.

COMBATSYS: Balrog has started a fight here.

Balrog           0/-------/-------|

No need to keep his opponent waiting, even if he doesn't have any respect for the man. Guile makes his way up onto the rooftop by climbing up the ladder from the fire escape and jumping up over the ledge. His eyes trail over the cameras before settling on Balrog, a hand slipping down into his pocket to pull out his comb and bring up up through his hair, pulling every strand into position. "Let's get this started."

COMBATSYS: Guile has joined the fight here.

Guile            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog smirks beneath his mask. "Let's." He drops down into a combat posture, his claw ready to strike, before he leaps into the foggy air. His black silhouette performs a roll before swan-diving down, aiming to land at Guile's right flank and slash at him with his claw, before bouncing out of range of counter-attack, staying mobile.

Guile            0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0           Balrog

Guile seems ready for it, easily bringing his arm up in the path of the claw, leaving it to drag light cuts into the side of his forearm, a few drops of blood being drawn down along the length of them. Balrog's defensive maneuver does little to keep him out of Guile's reach though, the man quickly launching himself forward across the rooftop, seeming to fly a half foot over the roof as he brings his knee up in front of him like the point of a spear, aimed to bring it straight into the spaniard's gut.

COMBATSYS: Balrog dodges Guile's Knee Spike.

Guile            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog's hand quickly comes down to touch the knee, the impact safely caught in his arm. He flies up a bit higher and does a flip, before coming down to the ground in a crouch. He immediately launches himself at Guile as the two touch the rooftop with their feet, attempting to spear him with his shoulder and launch him right off the roof, ending this fight early. "Hyah!"

Guile            0/-------/-----==|==-----\-------\0           Balrog

Guile sees the attack coming, and even finding himself off balance he's quick to respond, bringing his fist out in front of him with all the speed he can muster to launch it straight into Balrog's shoulder, throwing off the point. Even so he doesn't have the time to move out of the charging path and finds himself going sprawling back across the rooftop, coming to a rather hard stop against the ledge.

Balrog gets smacked in the shoulder, with a satisfying thump. He pulls up and circles Guile a bit, sneering, before he suddenly rolls forward, halting before Guile. "Die, American pig!" he shouts, as his claw blurs through the air in a downward slash at his gut.

COMBATSYS: Guile endures Balrog's Rolling Crystal Flash.

Guile            0/-------/-======|===----\-------\0           Balrog

The attack comes in at incredible speed, but Guile doesn't even flinch as the speedy slash comes in across his stomach, shredding through his tanktop and drawing a trio of scratches across his muscled abdominals, blood starting to drip out of the cuts. But while the spaniard is recovering from launching the assault, Guile brings out one of his own, twiling backward on one heel as he extends his fist at full length, bringing it around toward the side of Balrog's head.

COMBATSYS: Balrog dodges Guile's Spinning Backfist.

Guile            0/-------/-======|===----\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog ducks down to avoid the fist, before he backflips away. "Too slow!" he taunts, as his leg drags a bit behind the flip, aimed at Guile's jaw. His left fingertips hit the ground and he bounces off of them, landing on his feet in a crouched position, ready to intercept the next attack and strike. "You really should work on your technique, Guile," Balrog adds.

Guile            0/-------/=======|====---\-------\0           Balrog

A hint of a smirk crosses Guile's face as he sees the attack coming in, the look of a man about ready to show his stuff and spout of some corny line. His hands pull off to either side as the attack starts coming in, hands sheathed in chi, "Soni-" And it's then at the foot comes clean across his jaw, sending him sprawling back across the roof top and nearly launching him over the ledge, no smirk in sight.

Balrog lurches forward at Guile, not intending on giving him a moment's peace. He springs from side to side, zig-zagging his way at him, before landing behind him and grabbing at his waist. If he successfully takes hold, he launches himself into the air with Guile, whispering in his ear, "You're just not man enough!" He then launches him directly at the ground, before doing a back somersault and landing in a three point pose, his claw at ready.

COMBATSYS: Balrog successfully hits Guile with Stardust Drop.

Guile            1/-----==/=======|=====--\-------\0           Balrog

Guile's just barely getting to his feet as Balrog comes speeding in at him, trying to slip out of the way but just managing a shakey step to the side that does nothing to prevent the spaniard from grabbing him and sending him crashing down against the roof top, smashing the roof tiles into a small crater. His tank top's not ripped across the front and beat to shreds across the back, but the fiery American Spirit still burns right in his eyes. "You think you've won just like that? Come on and give me your best shot." The soldier extends one hand and waves it in a 'bring it on' motion, narrowing his eyes at his opponent.

COMBATSYS: Guile focuses on his next action.

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////////      ]
Guile            1/-----==/=======|=====--\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog watches Guile briefly, before replying, "I haven't won yet...I won't win until you're in the hospital!" He dashes forward, sprinting directly at Guile. He'll be easy to counter...That is until he leaps into the air, flipping right over Guile. He inverts in mid-air above the pilot, his claw slashing at the top of Guile's skull, before he gracefully lands on the rooftop ledge, precariously balanced with an utter lack of effort.

COMBATSYS: Guile fails to interrupt Weapon Jab from Balrog with Somersault Strike.

Guile            0/-------/------=|=====--\-------\0           Balrog

As Balrog launches into the air, Guile drops down into a low crouch, starting to launch himself up into a trademark somersault but once more his timing is completely off and the claw comes in faster than the big man has time to react to, slashing through his trademark flat top and swiping out a few strands of golden hair. Guile finds himself knocked onto his back, a trail of blood coming down from his scalp across his forehead.

Balrog grins to himself as he has Guile on his back - right where he wants him. No, not like that. He leaps up into the air, his golden ponytail waving through the air behind him, and aims to fall straight down on Guile's chest, jamming his claw into his stomach to do maximum damage to his internals.

COMBATSYS: Guile dodges Balrog's Deep Strike.

Guile            0/-------/------=|=====--\-------\0           Balrog

Finally things start to go Guile's way as he manages to pull himself together fast enough to roll out of the way of the oncoming strike, pushing himself back up to his feet and narrowing his focus on Balrog. He moves quick this time, not wanting to give the spaniard enough to recover from launching such a powerful assault, his arms aimed to grab Balrog by the other arm and launch him over his shoulder toward the other side of the roof.

COMBATSYS: Guile successfully hits Balrog with Quick Throw.

Guile            0/-------/------=|=======\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog gets grabbed and tosses, bouncing along the ground once as he hits it. He flips up to his feet and there's no second bounce, the ninja already back on his feet. A low, gutteral hiss emerges from the back of his throat as he slowly lopes forward, before dashing straight ahead in a blinding move, leaping into the air and attempting to introduce his heel to Guile's chin.

COMBATSYS: Guile dodges Balrog's Strong Kick.

Guile            0/-------/------=|=======\-------\0           Balrog

Once more Guile slides right out of the path of the oncoming assault letting Balrog sail right past him, a grin starting to form on his lips again, "It looks like you're too slow now." His hand cocks back to the side of his head as he attempts, curled into a tight fist, launching it full force toward the back of his opponent's head.

COMBATSYS: Balrog interrupts Strong Punch from Guile with Scarlet Mirage.

Guile            0/-------/-======|===----\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog gets hit by the punch - but is already in motion. He backflips into him, and launches into a series of blindingly quick flips, pummelling Guile with his claw and feet, until he's on the very edge of the roof. Balrog spins about and narrows his blue eyes behind his mask, ready to knock Guile out - and off the building, to the streets below.

The attack comes in hard, drawing streaks of blood all across the soldier's batter form, tearing his tank top to the point where one would hardly bother even to call it clothing anymore, just shreds hanging around his neck. It's all but over, but Guile's not one to give up just because the fat lady's singing, launching himself forward with arms out stretched in an attempt to wrap around the spaniard, if successful spinning him around and hauling him up off the ground to bring his head full force into the roof top in a killer suplex.

COMBATSYS: Balrog blocks Guile's Dragon Suplex.

Guile            0/-------/-======|====---\-------\0           Balrog

Balrog gets grabbed by the suplex, and shields his head with his arms as he slams into the ground. He rolls away from Guile and to his feet, shaking his head back and forth. "You're still standing...Impressive," he hisses, before he jukes to the left and darts forward, aiming to stab his claw right into Guile's mouth, before slashing it to the side, hoping to cause cosmetic damage.

COMBATSYS: Balrog successfully hits Guile with Medium Strike.

Guile            1/------=/=======|=====--\-------\0           Balrog

Guile's amazed he's still on his feet too, and unfortunately this keeps him off his guard and the strike comes in straight as an arrow, slashing across the side of his face, drawing a deep cut along his cheek, blood practically pouring out and down his neck, across his chest. Still he manages to push onward, pulling himself back up into his ready position and launching himself forward at Balrog, sending punch after punch, kick after kick, in an intricite dance aimed at every part of the spaniard, finishing it all of by launching into his trademark flash kick before collapsing onto the rooftop.

COMBATSYS: Guile can no longer fight.

Balrog           1/-------/=======|

Balrog gets lit up by the multiple blows, staggering backwards, before getting slammed in the jaw by the flash kick. His head snaps upwards as he flies into the air, before falling to the ground in a heap. He picks himself from his feet and shakes his head back and forth, glad that his foe is finished. He does a pose for the cameras, before leaping off the roof, disappearing into the night.
