Neo League 851 - #853: Maki vs Adon

Description: Once again, Maki Genryusai meets up against Adon in the Neo League. Will Maki have her revenge, or will Adon have the last laugh... again? ( Winner: Adon )

The Temple of the Silver Pavillion. An important Japanese landmark, it as designed to embody the zen-like philosophy found throughout Japan. The outer area is primarily short trees, most no taller than the two story central building itself; seen as a whole, the pavillion appears to rise out of the center of it all as if it too were one of the many trunks arising from the ground. This pavillion was the heart of today's Neo-League fight between two of the most signficent fighters of the last season.

"Stand CLEAR of the GOD of MUAY THAI!"

With a single strike of the back of his hand, the Emperor of Muay Thai knocked down one of the bystanders as he approached the pavillion. Yes, Adon was calling himself a God once again. And why wouldn't he? Adon was a champion. Through taking advantage of the chaos left through the Southtown crisis, not only did he win the championship, but he accrued the highest total point count of all previous contenders. He was a historical champion now.

Much better than Sagat ever was, of course.

Standing there with his arms spread wide, he just lets the cameras fix on him as a short man help the poor victim upright. "YES! I! ADON! The EMPEROR of MUAY THAI and LIVING GOD is HERE! Where is this MAKI! This so called...." Adon unleashes outlandish air quotes. "'HERO' of 'METRO CITY?' HERO!? HAH! Where was SHE in SOUTHTOWN? I didn't SEE HER THERE when I was BUSY SAVING the POOR WOMEN and CHILDREN of SOUTHTOWN!" And to that, Adon simply cackles loudly again. "KYA HA HAAAAA!"

The God of Muay Thai is a malevolent god, based on how he acts. And malevolent gods aren't exactly the type of god that someone like Maki Genryusai would want to worship. In fact, when Maki sees what Adon is doing, she feels an even deeper sense of revenge against Adon. She finishes adjusting her tonfa and her warming up, rolling her neck around a few times and then brushing a few stray strands of her blonde hair out of her face. She bends town to tighten her shoelaces and then walks into the actual arena area, much to the cheers of other people who seem to know her as a heroine-type as opposed to Adon. She smiles and waves to her fans, before scowling at Adon. So arrogant, he is.

Of course, Maki has more than one reason to be taking on Adon. The last time they fought, Maki was humiliated by being defeated by Adon in combat. Ever since then, she'd been taking the time to work on her skills while taking on other fighters on and off the league. All the while, she's been itching for the day where she'd get her revenge on Adon. To prove that good may not always come out on top, but it will eventually triumph.

"All right, Adon!" Maki says with a sneer. "It's time we settled this once and for all!"

Of course, Adon knew that Maki wanted a rematch. That's why he tried every trick he could to avoid a rematch. Yes, Maki may have been humilitated. But Adon was nearly beaten. For Adon, that was an even greater insult. He didn't want to lose, especially to someone like Maki. A true hero. And as such, his words to break her down were just to better himself. But from the sounds of it, no avail. As she enters the ring, he just stares, his grin expanding. And to that, he screeches;

"Fine then!"

At the drop off a hat, the Emperor of Muay Thai erupts in a short hop. Like a jaguar, he was pouncing on the girl, playing off his combination of speed of power to smash her to the ground. He remembered how agile Maki was, and in that was that he was careful about her. As he closes in on the girl, he whipped a leg around swiftly, avoiding the strength of his knees and elbows. Instead, he was going for the range of his kicks, sweeping his heel around to almost slice it across the lower torso of Maki.

Adon             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0             Maki

Well, the fight is underway, and just like it was said before, Maki has taken the time to observe what she learned about Adon and what his strengths and apparent weaknesses were. And one of those happened to be how well he kicks. Those legs of his are mighty fast, and could also inflict some serious pain on Maki. Which is why she utilizes her defensive skills to protect her torso from being slashed by Adon's foot. Instead, her wrists are the ones that absorb the hit, but it's not as bad as getting hit in the gut.

"Not bad, I see you're still up to your old tricks again," Maki says with a slight sneer. "But let's see if you can keep up with me this time?" With that, Maki twists around a couple times, attempting to fake out Adon with a tonfa strike, only to hopefully catch him off guard and deliver a swift jab to his chin.

Adon             0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0             Maki

Maki's studies paid off in spades. Stopping the kick, Adon continues to whirl around. Getting his balance, he notices the lightning-fast jab from Maki. He remembered how uneven Maki seemed. On one hand, she was deadly and fast. But she didn't seem like she had a great deal of power. He also made that judgement with Chun-Li. Arrogance takes over from there as anger boils up. He wouldn't lose this time.
And Adon takes that jab with a grin.

Clenching his feet down hard on the pavillion floor, Adon almost ignores the hard jab in his face. Almost. The swelling from the impact was not something one could ignore. Continuing to move forward, he wasn't giving Maki much more time to react. With lightning speed, he was swiftly hooking a right fist around to catch the woman in the neck. But as the grin continued, another fist was on the move. Swinging his left arm upwards, he rocketed another fist in tandem with the hook, attempting to smash it right in her gut. She might be able to block one, but the combination of both would almost certainly be too much for her to stop flawlessly.

Indeed, more than one punch is a bit too much to block for Maki. Attempting to block again would most likely result in Maki being hit in the gut, and hard too. So what does Maki do instead? What any other sensible fighter would do: Dodge out of the way!

Crouching down and then rolling sideways, Maki ensures that Adon's attack hits absolutely nothing but air in the spot where Maki just was a moment ago. "Missed me!" Maki says with a slight smirk, before going into her trademark technique of spinning around on the tip of her tonfa like a whirlwind, with one of her legs outstretched. Apparently, Maki's not wasting any time here!

Adon             0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0             Maki

Maki's evasive nature again short-changes Adon. The Emperor of Muay Thai had to play it careful. Like Maki, he had to rethinking his strategy. The agility of Maki was only compounded by the tonfas. Anything she couldn't dodge perfectly could be easily blocked or even parried by the weapons. As she ducks and tumbles away, Adon just continues to advance after her. He needed to keep steady, and not overly aggressive. She could tear him asunder if he fell apart.

And already, she was moving with that agility. Spinning like a top, she sticks out her leg, whirling. And to that, Adon just draws his arms up, taking the blows into his arms. He holds there cautiously, his advance stopped cold. And the moment Maki stops her spinning... ADon doesn't charge. No, he takes a short series of cautious steps, and sneers, And like that, he simply unleashes a straight punch directly for the limbs of the woman. To cripple her a bit... to slow her down. She wasn't wasting time, but Adon?

He would bide his.

Adon             0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0             Maki

What a punch that was, indeed. Maki's attack fails after it's deflected by Adon, and before she can even regain her fighting stance, she takes that blow directly. She was hoping to get out of her attack by rolling away, but no such luck. The impact leaves her down on the ground for a moment, groaning in pain. But this is merely a flesh wound, as Maki gets back onto her feet rather quickly and dusts herself off. "Looks like you're still up to your old tricks as usual," Maki says, shaking her head.

Once regaining her fighting stance, Maki eyes Adon carefully. She looks like she could attack at any moment, but for now she doesn't strike in the least bit. Instead, she's eyeing her opponent carefully, watching every little thing, trying to find subtle hints as to what he might do next. With Adon, there are still things Maki doesn't know about him, and she wants to see if she can figure out more about him.

COMBATSYS: Maki focuses on her next action.

Adon             0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0             Maki

And then, an opening was founded.

The moment the strike lands, Adon assesses his situation. Maki was pulling back, trying to predict what Adon was going to do. She was moving to the defensive, a situation that she utilized very well. But at the same time, she was somewhat distracted. Her mind was no longer in the fighting thrill, but drawn back. This was it.

The Opening.

The speed in which Adon leaps is hardly the most impressive. The Emperor of Muay Thai was front-flipping, moonsaulting forward as he attempting to throw all his weight on top of the woman. As he righted himself, he wound back his leg, a mass of orange chi energy manifesting at the bottom of his heel. "JAAAAGGGAAA!" He howled as he attempting to smash the heel down into the fighter's skull. "KEEEEEEK!"

Adon             0/-------/-----==|======-\-------\0             Maki

Watching her opponent like a predator eyeing its prey, Maki thinks she can anticipate what Adon has to offer next for her. But while watching is a good idea, being able to respond is another thing. And unfortunately, Maki's reflexes are a little too slow to avoid that incoming kick to her skull. She lets out a groan and drops to the ground face-first. Without even reaching around to feel it, she can tell that her nose has started bleeding as well as possibly her mouth. Looks like Adon's got the upper hand on Maki right now, but anything still goes.

"You haven't changed," Maki says as she slowly gets up, using her tonfa for support. Despite one leg being unsteady, Maki still manages to get back into her fighting stance. "Now, let me show you one of my flying kick techniques!" With that, Maki rebounds off of a nearby object and then flies directly at Adon with her foot extended and aimed right at Adon's chest.

Maki's reflexes too slow? That's dangerous talk. Still, as Adon drives his heel down, he simply spikes her to the floor. "GYA HA HA! JAGGA!" He squeals, crossing his arms as Maki slowly recovers. "And neither have you. TELL ME. How does it feel to- JAAAGAH?!"

The kick takes Adon by surprise, the timing impeccable. If the kick got off a little earlier, or a little later, the Emperor of Muay Thai would have been much better prepared. Striking his chest, however, was not exactly a major location of damage. Staggering back, Adon had a look of diabolical joy to replace the offended one. Taking a quick two steps forward, he finally unleashes his signature normal: The flying knee. Rocketing forward, he shuttles the knee right towards Maki's torso, attempting to crush her underneath the flying assault. "JAAAGGAH!"

Adon             0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1             Maki

To be honest, Adon seems more like a bunch of hot air right now than a threat, since Maki manages to avoid that incoming kick like it's nothing. She jumps into the air over Adon and then lands behind him, tsking as she does so. "Stop wasting your breath and start fighting, willya?"

Without even waiting for Adon to turn around, Maki jumps onto a nearby object, and then, with a flash of energy, jumps at Adon and attempts to grab him by the shoulders. If successful, he's gonna really get it!

Adon             0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0             Maki

Unfortunately, things don't go as planned...

To Maki's benefit, the Emperor of Muay Thai certainly got it.

Adon's flying knee leaves him landing on both feet hard. Before he could even turn around, Maki was on him. And like that, he was being whipped up, and with that, he was hurled to the ground. Hard. However, the Emperor of Muay Thai, despite his age, was quite agile. Before he strikes the ground, he wriggles out from the grips of Maki prematurely. Striking the ground, he breaks into a tumble. Whirling to the far end of the Pavilion, he perks up, gripping his shoulder. Yes, he nulled the attack quite a bit. However, he was still struck solidly. And as he rose, he was still in fact grinning. Rubbing down his shoulder to his upper arm, he just stood there, his eyes flaring dangerously.

"Okay, then. I, the EMPEROR of MUAY THAI, COMMAND you to come!"

COMBATSYS: Adon focuses on his next action.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Adon             0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0             Maki

"Me? Come to you? Oh, please," Maki says as she catches her breath, seeming to forget for the time being about her injuries, even though they are still there. She's regained a little fighting spirit within her, but that won't last long unless she maintains a proper fighting style. For now, Adon is commanding her to come to him? Yeah, right.

"I got a better idea. If you're so interested in me, why don't you come see me instead?" Maki says with a wink, before closing her eyes. She breathes deep, focusing on increasing her level of inner strength.

COMBATSYS: Maki gathers her will.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Adon             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Maki

Adon smirks. Of course. She was too frightened. Or pragmatic. Adon only saw it as being too frightened. Oh well. Adon would see her, then.

The Emperor sweeps the pavilion quickly, his eyes picking out the strong supports inside it. Immediately, the moment that Maki shuts her eyes, the Adon leaps. Rebounding off one of the pillars in a single leap, he rockets forward like a rocket, a leg jutting outward. Aiming the foot straight for the neck of the woman, he used all his momentum to simply run her down with his flying kick. Or, as Adon would say....


COMBATSYS: Maki blocks Adon's Jaguar Tooth.

Adon             0/-------/--=====|======-\-------\0             Maki

Just because a fighter's eyes are closed doesn't mean that their mind can't see what's happening out there. In fact, just as Adon yells out, Maki's eyes shoot open and she's able to see what's coming at her. Thinking quickly, Maki raises her arms to guard. And the defense does succeed, but Maki's arms are getting tired. Hence the reason she reels back even more this time.

"I'm still in this," Maki says, shaking a tonfa at Adon. "I assure you of that!" And then, Maki steps towards Adon and attempts to administer a simple toss onto the ground. Unlike before, there's nothing complex here.

COMBATSYS: Maki successfully hits Adon with Quick Throw.

Adon             0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0             Maki

As the foot makes contact, Maki's defenses are (for all intents and purposes) torn a new one. For that, Adon knew he had to begin unleashing the quick, light attacks. Transfer for speed as long as she can't bring her defenses to bear. But then, she gets the man in her grasp. The aggressive charge doesn't leave much for nimble evasions, and as such, he is all for the taking.

Adon attempts to go with the attack, ignoring it just to smash her into the ground. Unfortunately, the simple toss does in fact give her enough distance to negate the Emperor's wild swinging. "Not for LONG!" He howls as he attempts another manic swing, this time attempting to bring forward his elbow right into the chest of the woman.

Adon             0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0             Maki

Tut, tut, Adon. Aggression isn't always the best way to win. Especially when you're aiming at a woman's chest. And everyone knows a true gentleman never strikes a lady there... but Adon's no gentleman! And Maki knows that for a fact. Still, she's not gonna let him strike there that easily.

Dropping down quickly, Maki rolls backwards and gets into a standing position once she's finished rolling, scowling at Adon angrily. "You know, you're not as dirty as I thought you were... you're even dirtier!" She says, shaking her head in disgust. But she doesn't attack. No, she simply takes a moment to catch her breath. After all, a good fighter needs to know when to take a breather.

COMBATSYS: Maki gains composure.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Adon             0/-------/-======|=====--\-------\0             Maki

Maki's evasive nature continues to deny Adon a solid hit. As she tumbles away, he just unleashes an exasperated howl. Adon is no gentlemen, that was for sure. He was just a God of Muay Thai. And in that, he was content.

"Shut UP, WENCH!" Adon screeches as he continues to charge forward, his arms spread wide apart to grab the woman as she took her breath. If successful, Adon would simply smash his forehead into the forehead of Maki, and hurl her away from him.

Adon             0/-------/=======|=======\=------\1             Maki

"Nobody calls me a wench!" Maki shouts angrily, watching Adon come at her, ready to move when he's going to strike. Or so she thinks. Instead of getting out of the way of what Maki thinks is a striking attack, she gets caught by Adon and finds herself getting headbutted, and then tossed into the ground. She rolls a few inches and then lands in a semi-fetal position. From where the blow landed, a little blood can be seen. Looks like Adon hit Maki good that time.

"Ungh... stay still," Maki mutters as she tries to shake the dazed feeling from her head, wishing the area would stop spinning around. Again, using her tonfa to prop her up, Maki manages to get into a kneeling position, and then looks towards Adon. "You have a lot of guts to call me a wench!" Maki says, her teeth gritting as she gets back up. "And now..." At that, energy starts to appear around Maki, and then she suddenly flies directly at Adon with her leg outstretched, the woman screaming, "I'M GONNA MAKE YOU REGRET THAT!"

Adon             1/------=/=======|====---\-------\0             Maki

And she almost did.

When Adon smashes his forehead into Maki's skull, he managed to get a free hit. That, in itself, was worth it's weight in gold. Stunning Maki with the headbutt, he hurls her away. And that was the most important part.

By the time Maki is giving her retort, Adon was charging. His body was tensing up, his mind going sharp. He created a weak point. Maki was a smart, fast fighter. But Adon was brutal. Signficantly vicious. What he lacked in brains he made up with a low-brow sense of cunning wit. He knew how to win. And in this was how he did so well in the last season.

By the time her leg comes in, Adon is leaping into the kick, taking a glancing blow on his hardened abs. As he shot past the leg, his knee smashed hard into Maki's Torso. "JAAAGGGAAA!" The Emperor howled as his second knee rose up, his body drifting upwards. With his second kneebutt, he aimed at a more important location. Right where his own headbutt landed: In the skull.

And with that, he begins to land back to the ground, the damage done. He was injured by the last attack, yes. But now, as the abdomen wound began to bleed over his Muay Thai trunks, he took a single, harsh breath.


That was really humiliating. Getting hit in the wounded spot even harder than before. Meaning that there's more blood than before, and a lot more dizziness than before. And when Maki hits the ground from being countered, the blonde finds herself face down with her eyes closed, barely breathing. Could it be that Adon has beaten Maki again?

Nope, not quite.

Maki somehow manages to get back up onto her knees, and then manages to get into a crouched position on one foot. She's barely got any steam left within her, but as long as her will to fight remains, then she's gonna give it her all. Which is why she's taking a few moments to regain her breath and get some more steam in her.

COMBATSYS: Maki gains composure.

Adon             1/------=/=======|==-----\-------\0             Maki

Maki was still struggling to stay on the ropes, Adon could clearly see. Adon, on his behalf, knew how to come back from the ropes. But when he found a victim on them, he could not envision the same. He just saw the weak and the weakened ripe for the mocking. To humiliate Maki... to ignore what happened last time. No, he was taking this moment to fiercely tear her apart... like a jaguar on it's prey.

With a steady, deliberate pace, he closed in on the weakened woman. An orange light consumed his as his own fighting spirit rose to the surface. This light told a deadly warning; That Adon was about to finish the job. Adon snaps out a chi-laced foot, attempting to catch the woman in the jaw with a rapid kick. "Get UP, WENCH! Or do you wish to DIE on the ground like the DOG you ARE?!"

And then, a round house to catch her again. He would then promptly begin kicking her again and again around the pavilion. Louder and louder his laughter began to build, a high-pitched cackling starting to rise. Adon wasn't fighting fair. He wasn't fighting in an honorable manner. No, what he was doing was grinding salt in the wound. Showing how arrogant he was.

Showing what kind of gentleman he was.

Adon             0/-------/-------|=======\-------\1             Maki

A resting fighter has little chance of avoiding being hit by something like that. Meaning that Maki's attempt to get out of the way is futile. She goes flying and slams into a nearby tree, hitting her head even harder than before. Blood can be seen in her blonde hair as she slumps to the ground, lying against the tree. Yet she still brings herself up for one more go at Adon.

A go in the form of her super flying kick one more time. Whether or not it hits, she's going down after this.

There was a moment of cheering when the first of Adon's kicks landed. And then, after the second and third, they die down. By the time the final kick came around, driving Maki against the edge of the pavilion, there was a dead silence. This was horrible. Adon was, in effect, taking advantage of a hero on the ropes. He was beating her into hamburger, and doing so with that sick, twisted grin.

But when Maki explodes back, activity reignites amongst the crowd. Adon stands there, taking the strike hard in the abdomen. His body goes rigid, his form frozen. He clutches the leg, gripping Maki tightly as he takes the hit. He seems ready to explode right back into Maki, in order to tear her apart. He was in the prime position. But instead, he just releases her. Letting the unconscious Maki fall to the ground, Adon stood erect, blood flowing freely from his torso. "LET IT BE KNOWN that the EMPEROR of MUAY THAI is DEAD! And in his place is ME! ADON! THE GOD of MUAY THAI!"

Quietly, the cameras turn off, and the medical team rushes over to Maki. The audience wanted Maki to win. And Adon? Well, Adon was a windbag, and a douche. He didn't deserve any of this.

COMBATSYS: Adon has ended the fight here.
