Neo League 751 - #774: Choi vs Skullomania

Description: Choi and Skullomania fight in the Neo League. I'd say something weird happened. But that'd be redundant. ( Winner: Choi )

"MESDAMES ET MESSIEURS!" The bowler-hatted announcer shouts in his microphone, waving at the wild crowd that surrounded the ring. "I pree-sent to you ze newest Neeo League match tonight!" The man feeds the roars of massive hoard. France was well known for it's love of fighting, and tonight was no different. As the crowd's shouts began to wane ever so slightly, the announcer struck again.

"In Theeees corner, wee have ze criminal dwarf... CHOI BOUNGE!" And with that, the wave of boos and hiss rake throughout the entire stadium. But the midget didn't look like he cared. Standing erect on the post, he waved maliciously at the crowd, waving his claws in the air to make it obvious that he didn't give a damn. In case they missed it. The announcer shook his head, before facing a far entranceway that lead through the crowd to the center ring. "And now, ze hero of tonight, the frightening, the brutal, and the symbol of justice in zeese dark times...."


Brightly coloured fireworks, sailing off into the night sky on ribbons of day-glo yellow, pink, orange and green, fireworks explode dramatically from Skullomania's corner. It is night time so they glow x-tra bright tonight. Up above they form an image in the sky out of various colours, it is of a man, eating a hot dog.

Somehow it is animated like a neon sign, and in three bites the man has finished devouring his delicious hotdog. A tiny piece of the bun, bright orange, remains in his pink fingers and he flicks it off at the crowd! There is an explosion and whitish green confetti spirals of sauerkraut rain upon the crowd which Oooos and Aaaaas appropriately.

There is a dull POOF and a column of smoke from the corner then Skullomania leaps from it, raising his hands above his head triumphantly! He turns his back to the midget Choi, mugging for the crowd!

COMBATSYS: Skullomania has started a fight here.

The announcer watches the show, raising his arms in the air. Yes, the crowd was impressed. But Choi... looked bored. Oh, he thought the fireworks were one of the coolest things he had ever seen. But he didn't want to look like he enjoyed them. He had to look tough. He was a criminal after all- a villain! And they might actually take him seriously.

And then Skullomania shows up.

Choi stares from his post, crouching down in utter offense. They were mocking him. They had to have been mocking him! The announcer steps back, barking into the mic. "And now, gentlemen! On the count of three, you may begin your match. Get ready! One-"

"Hey! Pajama Man!" The Korean shouts, kicking off from the post. "Think fast, doofus!" The little man flattens his body, and points his claws straight at the superhero. Spinning around like a football, he dives right for Skullomania, attempting to drill right into his back.

COMBATSYS: Choi has joined the fight here.

Choi             0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0      Skullomania

Skullomania takes the blow right in the small of the back, the midget medicine ball causes Skullomania to expectorate through his mask as he's knocked forewards.

The spry skeleton man leaps back to his feet easily and the crowd immediately begins to cheer as he raises his hands to the sky. He turns to face Choi and shakes a finger tauntingly. "That was deceptive and a dirty trick! I'll have you know that such underhanded tactics will win you no favours here!"

Skullo begins to laugh as more pyrotechnic fireworks erupt from his feet spraying multicoloured pinwheels of colour into the air. He flexes a few times for effect and then taps his chest and gives the universal hand signal to 'Bring It'.

COMBATSYS: Skullomania gathers his will.

Choi             0/-------/------=|=======\-------\0      Skullomania

Choi's surprise attack gets him nothing but boos and hisses. His claws drill right into the back of the hero, and with that, he flips back. The announcer shakes his head, but quickly leaves the arena floor. No point getting caught in this mess. Besides, with the look on the Korean's face, that midget meant mean matters maliciously.

Choi cackles loudly as he shakes the blood off his claws. "Deceptive? Dirty? Why thank you, Pajama Man! But I don't need no favors. All I need is to-" The midget is cut off by the flash of pyrotechnics. Shielding his eyes, the little man glares at the flashy hero. "Hey! Watch it, buddy boy!" He spits as the crowd cheers on Skullomania.

Choi scowls, and winds his glutes up tight. With a short running start, the midget leaps high in the air, answering the international sign language of bringing it. Sticking his legs out ahead of him, Choi just begins pumping his legs, trying to beat the Great Skullo right over on his back. Looks like Choi is going all out... or taking the bait.

COMBATSYS: Choi successfully hits Skullomania with Hishou Kyaku.
- CRAZY Hit! -

Choi             0/-------/-----==|=======\====---\1      Skullomania

Skullomania is blasted out across the arena as he cockily raises his arms to block. Choi's foot snakes right between them and catches the Skeleton Man right on the chin. Skullo doesn't even have a chance to react, to make noise, he just falls, horizontally at 30 mile per hour until he hits the wall.

He lays there woozily for several moments unable to punctuate his rise with any chi manifestations of fireworks or laserbeams when he stands. "Holy crap?!" He yells to the audience, "Did any of you get the NUMBER on that TRUCK? Whoah Geezum." He stumbles backwards, towards choi, wobbling with a decided lack of coordination. "Like whoah, what's going on? Hey mister? Can I borrow some change for the bus?" He blinks, his black eye holes turning white for a moment, and then he looks down and ducks to pick up a quarter.

His leg slides out from behind him as he does and he spins around a complete 360 degrees before snapping the leg straight up toward's Choi's chin.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|=======\=====--\1      Skullomania

Choi's flying phoenix kick strikes true, and introduces Skullomania to a fate worse than PAIN. Attention duelist! Choi's transparent hair demands utter and total victory! No bones about it... Skullomania doesn't have a... GHOST of a chance.

The midget lands from his vicious strike, and does what he does best... dance. Spinning around, he howls just under the roar and rumbles of the crowd, discontent at what the little man was doing to their hero. And then, the hero speaks... and confuses everyone.

Even Choi stops from his dancing, looking more than just bewildered. Change? Bus? Choi stepped back a bit, worried about the level of head injury he caused. But then, the man lets loose a kick... and calls it super punch?


Choi squeals as he ducks low, swiftly working his way under the footpunch. And seeing a fresh new opening in the spandex's defense, he spits. "You dirty boner! And you say I use cheap tricks!" With that, the little man swings both of his claws right at the hamstrings of the poor man, attempting to let loose a crippling blow against the man.

COMBATSYS: Skullomania blocks Choi's Power Strike.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|=======\======-\1      Skullomania

Skullomania laughs, "Hahaha! But they love me!" he throws his hands up and the crowd cheers. He then points at Choi, "And they hate you!" And with the boos and hisses again! Skullo dashes away from his assailant kicking at the midget's claws and stymying the worst of the blow. "SO as you can see! Only I may win!" Skullomani nods and takes a bow, disappearing in a cloud of blue smoke.

There is a noise, like a spoon being stirred in a porcelain teacup from behind Choi, where Skullomania is now seated on the ground under a japanese style table. There is a second porcelain cup, empty, near choi. Skullo sips his and lears his skeleton grin. "Would you like a cup of tea? It's ginseng. Certainly would help with your anger management."

COMBATSYS: Skullomania gains composure.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|=======\=====--\1      Skullomania

Choi growls, having another foot punch knock away his claws. Truly, Skullomania was the Bajiquan of Kicking. Sort of like Tae Kwon Do, but instead of kicks, there were foot punches. Of course, Choi was only getting more and more bitter. How could someone like Skullomania play the crowd like that. Everyone was loving HIM, a sad sack of calcium, and not Choi, a sexy piece of calcium in the sack. Yes he was the villain. But some villains were lovable! Choi could be lovable. That's why there was the Hello Choi toy line.

So what if they were one of the so-called 'criminal activities' being pressured at Gitmo.

When the smoke appears, Choi scans the arena... and immediately turns around. He suspected an attack from the rear... he had dealt with too many spandex-clad warriors to expect any less (including that one time Chang got drunk and dressed up like Cammy. Never again.) And there, it was tea time.

Choi spits at the ground. "Ginseng is for memory, buddy boy! Maybe you should drink a lot more of it!" And with that... Choi froze. He really was thirsty. And... well. He liked Ginseng. Looking over at the crowd nervously, the little man scurried over. "Well, maybe just a sip." The little man positioned himself over at the table, and to the amazement of the crowd, lifted a tiny cup carefully, and motioned it towards Skullomania. "Top me off, bone daddy."

COMBATSYS: Choi takes no action.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|=======\=====--\1      Skullomania

Skullomania chortles agreeably as he drains his cup of tea, and pours himself another one. He then stands and reaches across the table to pour a cup for Choi from the Banana Elite BANAO japanese teapot.

"Ginseng for memory. How could I forget?" He slaps himself in the forehead, which causes his head to erupt with orange chi flames. The chi aura spreads across his body then as he raises his glass to cheers Choi. "Well then. I'll drink to that you little bugger!"

COMBATSYS: Skullomania gathers his will.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2      Skullomania

Choi nervously takes the tea, and sips it. He makes a long, steady sound of pleasure. Banao really did help contain the flavor of ginseng. The Korean continues to nurse it. Not even the explosion of fiery orange energy distracts him. However, something else does.

"Little?" The midget pipes coldly. "LITTLE!?!" Choi trembles, choking back his rage. "You think I am LITTLE, skeledumb?" The midget roars, pushing over the table as he rises up. Clenching the cup tightly, he hurls it at the hero, punishing him for his baudy taunts against his size!

COMBATSYS: Choi successfully hits Skullomania with Thrown Object.

Skullomania throws his hands up, but it is too late, the china cup shatters into a million pieces around Skullomania's head. "Oh dear! that hurt! You should really be careful with fine china!" He nurses the goose egg he feels coming on and wobbles as he rises to a standing position. "I mean really, WHO THROWS A CUP?" He then leaps over the table, his scarf unmoving, staying frozen in the air and trailing out behind him until it is 6 feet long as he leaps over the table to deliver a flying kick!

COMBATSYS: Choi dodges Skullomania's Light Kick.

Choi             0/-------/-----==|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2      Skullomania

Choi cackles in a high-pitched manner, pointing a single claw at the heroic keeper of the skulls. "Eh, blow it out your nose, Pajama Man." The midget slanders ruefully. But his mocking is threatened in the most vile manner possible: through flying foot punching.

Choi watches in horror as the hero charges him, and the midget does what he does best: duck. Going abnormally low and aside the fighter, the little man hoots quickly at the spandex'd fighter. "And what is with the scarf? Kamen Rider went out years ago, bucko!" And with that, the midget backflips, letting loose a single kick to catch his opponent in the bony jaw, rattling his poor skull if it should hit...

Choi             0/-------/-======|=======\-------\1      Skullomania

Skullomania throws his hands up in the air in shock! SHOCK! As Choi disrespects Kamen Rider, "TAKE THAT BACK!" He yells pointing an accusing finger at the midget. "TAKE IT BAAAAAAACK!"

The orange flames burning on the suit turn yellow, and flare up, the scarf flaps dramatically in the wind and the crowd starts to chant Skullomania's name. He falls backwards, his face just barely grazing the foot as he falls, and he strikes the ground like a drill.

That is because as he lands rocks and dirt begin to fly from his feet spraying violently around the arena and then with an inhuman burst of speed the masked man slides straight into Choi. If Choi were taller he'd slide straight into his legs, but as it stands he gets him all over.

To be honest, Choi has been feeling great about this fight. Even though he had been the villain and unpopular, he had some advantage in the fight. That advantage just went right out the with the cooler when he made fun of Kamen Rider. The crowd roars the moment when Skullomania rips into the midget, bowling over him. By the time he is passed over, the term scrape art comes to mind.

Twisted in a funny way, the midget untwists himself out. "Oh, so you want to play dirty, buddy bones?" The midget croaks, staggering upright. "Then lets start by playing skull bone connected to the CUT BONE!" With that, the little man leaps through the air, attempting to land right on the still down hero's shoulders. If he manages to get on them, he will latch on with his legs, and just drive those blades into the skull, neck, and spine.

Choi             1/-------/=======|=======\====---\1      Skullomania

Skullomania surges triumphantly! His chest puffs out, his scarf flaps in the wind behind him and he stands up straight. "You can't hurt me, I'm Skullo-oh-OOOF" The skull man gets knocked against the wall, and slashed to ribbons by Choi's furious slicery.

Literally too, black and white ribbons of existance swirl about his furiously pumping hands until Skullomania is like a mass of yarn. There is a bright blue explosion and then it is gone.

Skullomania steps out from the otherside of the screen chewing on a carrot, looking at Choi, who's arms are still pumping, with curiousity. "Eeeeh? What's up Doc?"

COMBATSYS: Skullomania gains composure.

Choi             1/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1      Skullomania

Choi gets him! Hah! Legs snapped around the man, the midget jams his claws in the man! Over and over and over again, he just rips into the man! And the man slowly sinks to the ground as he turns into a wispy pile of- what?

Choi becomes bewildered again. What trickery was this? The midget hears the voices besides him. Turning to look as he pumps his arms, the midget steadily slows down as this new information reaches him. The midget sneers; not to mock, but just to show his disgust. "You... are... BAH!" The midget hurls away the leftover bits of yarn, and lunges at Skullomania. And with that, the little man begins to spin around and around. Then kick. Then backflip kick. The frontflip kick! He drives his claws around in every which way he can imagine, attempting to overwhelm the mysterious warrior with wild, crazy strikes!

Which also pale in comparison to all the OTHER wackiness coming from the skull maniac.

COMBATSYS: Skullomania fails to interrupt Hou'ou Kyaku from Choi with Skullo Head EX.

Skullomania leaps into the air, going into slow motion bullet time. His skull-like head slams into brick a million times. It causes Choi to explode into gorey chunks of gore, with cherry pie filling splottering all over the place.

Skullo cries with glee and victory as he picks up the top of Choi's head and places it atop his own like a hat. "I get to be the guy! I get to be the guy! I get to be the guy! I get to be the guy!"

Suddenly the scene wavers, light harp music plays and reality fades back into view, someone didn't have enough super to use the Skullo Dream properly! Skullo yells out, "OH NO YOUR SUPER PUNCH IS GREATER THAN MINE!" He takes several kicks to the torso, knocking him back. He grunts and strains trying to smash his head into Choi's fat face, but is unable to do so! The last kick catches him square in the jaw and smashes his head against the wall of the arena knocking him out cold.

Choi stands over his fallen foe. The hero has lost. And lo, the audience gnashes at their teeth, becoming whipped into a greater and more furious rage. Choi just looks down. "No, Pajama Man." The midget says coldly as he faces the bitter crowds. "My super punch is not greater than yours. I just am unable to punch with my hands."

And then everything was made clear.

Skullomania stands up immediately, not even looking phased by that brutal knock out and he offers a hand to Choi to shake. "Well said, well put. I could learn something from that." He giggles "And I'm sorry about what I said, you are truly the grandest bugger I have ever had the dubious duty of taking to task! We shall meet again!"

And then he spins rapidly in place becoming a black and white blurr his scarf trailing a ring around him like he was some heavenly gas giant, and then Skullomania launches off into the night sky spinning as he rises straight up until he clips off the screen and disappears to fight crime somewhere, presumably.
