Devil's Tournament - DT R3: Kain vs ElFuerte

Description: Kain and El Fuerte head to Brazil to battle it out on the stage of the Theatro Municipal for the third round of the Devil's Tournament. El Fuerte faces an uphill battle, but doesn't go down easily despite the assault of Kain's fire. (Winner: Kain)

Hey! Brazil has pretty good dishes don't it!?

Since it has become pretty clear to El Fuerte Luchador that he's quite horribly outmatched in this devil tournament, his most prominent clue being getting tossed around by a tiny cute little pop star singing girl, he decides to have as much fun as he can with it by also sampling any delicious food he can encounter. As preparations are well underway for the fight to begin, the willy luchador is seen on the sidelines munching away at some of the food the local vendors sell. Now, any other sensible fighter would avoid trying to eat anything heavy right before a fight, but we're talking about El Fuerte here, you know the only upside of eating the things he cooks is that he has developed an iron stomach.

After a moment of pigging out, the officials say that it is time for the fight to begin and Fuerte heeds the call of Lucha!!

"WOOHAA!" Leaping into the stage, the luchador begins to bounce on his feet lightly as he limbers up, ready to get this devilish wrestling started.

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte has started a fight here.

Kain may have sampled some of the local food as well, but chances are that it was earlier, and at somewhere more upscale than street vendors. He probably missed out. It doesn't keep him from arriving at the Theatro Municipal, though, and making his way to the stage. And there's quite a crowd gathered for the match. El Fuerte has got a number of local fans, and both fighters are just generally well known. The lucha seems to be the more popular combatant amongst this crowd, though. It doesn't concern Kain; he's more interested in the actual fight.

After he steps up onto the stage, Kain walks to the spot indicated for his starting position and briefly glances out over the crowd. Normally this place would have a quiet audience, but since there's no play or music going on today people don't feel restrained from cheering, and the noise funnels to the stage quite well. The blond man turns toward El Fuerte, adopting a casual stance with his left hand hooked loosely into his pocket. El Fuerte is an energetic one. Kain often finds that type a bit annoying, but there's nothing to be done for it. Or, well, there is, but he hasn't had a chance to kick the other man's teeth in yet. He smiles thinly, waiting for the signal to be given to begin.

COMBATSYS: Kain has joined the fight here.

Cracking his knuckles as his regards with opponent his serious eyes, El Fuerte hears the clamor of the crowd and is surprised to hear that most of it is directed to him. Must be that Brazilians would identify more with a fellow South American than a German, but it matters little to someone like El Fuerte, he wants their support to be for Lucha Libre, not for petty nationality. He's so over things like that!

"Let us have a good lucha, seņor!" The wrestler calls as the bell is rung, thousands of spectators cheering as the match begins, prompting the masked warrior to make a mad dash for Kain!


With his cry unleashed, El Fuerte makes a frontal flip aiming to land a double stomping kick directly for Kain's face. Much like he initiated his match against Athena.

COMBATSYS: Kain blocks ElFuerte's Calamari Slide.

Still leaving his left hand in his pocket, Kain swings his right arm up into the path of El Fuerte's feet. He manages to angle it to catch the soles of both feet on his arm, letting the limb bend toward him slightly under the force of the impact, but not so far as to actually touch him. He frowns slightly for a moment, but doesn't seem worried or in much pain.

Then Kain's arm suddenly snaps back before striking out, aiming to snare El Fuerte by one of his ankles. Blue chi flares up around Kain's gloved hand as he tries to dig his fingers into the lucha's leg, then swing him around and send him crashing down at high speed to skid across the floor of the stage.

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte blocks Kain's Medium Throw.

Feet to hand is not as satisfying as feet to face but it will have to do! Ironic that El Fuerte would have found that outcome far more acceptable than what happened with Athena where he really did manage to kick her in the face. Normally the wrestler would blame it on the fact that she was just a little girl, but after enduring some of the devastating attacks she shot out, he's not so sure about that!

Fuerte feels a hand wrapping around his ankles and he instantly curls forward grabbing hold of Kain's shoulders to stabilize himself when he goes for the counter attack. As he expected, Kain attempts to throw him by flinging him to the side, what he didn't expect however was the burning sensation that he suddenly felt digging through his luchador boots and into his feet!


El Fuerte goes flying and even though he manages to break his fall with cartwheel, there's still the little issue about his feet being in fire!

"AY AY AY AY!!!" The luchador slides to the side of the stage near one of the vendors and douses some water on his burning boots before getting back into the stage. Figures! This guy can shoot fire out of his palms too! El Fuerte will just have to get creative with this one.

Bouncing towards Kain again, the luchador ducks low first before leaping into the air and bring an elbow smash directly on Kain's head!

COMBATSYS: Kain instinctively dodges ElFuerte's Tostada Press.

Kain moves just a bit, shifting his feet slightly and leaning to one side, causing El Fuerte's elbow to miss as it comes down toward his head. He's cutting it a bit close, though. And still Kain keeps one hand in his pocket as he continues his movement, sliding around El Fuerte as he lands from his aerial assault.

Kain's right arm snaps out again, this time aiming to snare El Fuerte by the throat. Should he succeed, Kain shows little strain in lifting El Fuerte off the floor, while black fire races down Kain's arm to engulf the lucha's head for a few moments before Kain tosses him aside again.

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte fails to interrupt Schwarze Schleife from Kain with Calamari Slide.

"Uh oh!" El Fuerte sees that his elbow misses its target completely and manages to adjust his fall just in time to land on his feet rather than on his side, which would have sucked admittedly. However, perhaps it wouldn't have sucked as much as suddenly getting grabbed by the neck! The Luchador acks in pain as he feels pressure on his neck before being lifted with one hand. His legs flail about in an attempt to kick Kain in the face in order to be released, however just before he can get a good angle to strike him, he's already getting flung aside where he rolls about on the ground a little, sliding to the side of the stage with one of the vendors.

"Ay caramba." He mumbles as he sits back up, snatching an offered drink from the same vendor as before, gulping it down with choke. "Gracias!" The luchador grins and begins to stand up, clearing his throat in the process.

If Kain where a nicer man, he might let El Fuerte recuperate for a few moments, enjoy his drink and catch his breath. But Kain is not a particularly nice man. His only concern is not hitting someone who's not actually in the fight, because of all the trouble it would cause. Luckily for Kain but not for El Fuerte, the angle that Kain has for a shot isn't too bad.

Heinlein whips an arm toward El Fuerte, sending a blast of black fire streaking through the air toward the luchadore. Of course, none of the audience near the stage is quite as confident in Kain's aim as he is, so there's a lot of people ducking as fast as they can.

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte endures Kain's Schwarze Flame.

Hey! No worries! If all of Fuerte's opponents were as nice as him, then there wouldn't be any point to fighting! El Fuerte rolls with the punches and fixes his eyes on his opponents, the energy that burns through his body is quite annoying, but not quite enough to completely obliterate him. That might change however with the incoming blast of fire from seņor Kain, that is a lot bigger than even what Athena could muster..perhaps even than Ryu's? It could be that is the largest blast of fire that has been shot at El Fuerte! it isn't. Kyo's was way bigger.

And if he could survive that, he can survive this!!

"ANDALE!!" The Luchador charges like maniac! Right /into/ the blast of fire and through it, burning himself in the process but also reaching Kain where he aims to ram him with a football tackle, scooping him off his legs and carry him to the other side of the stage where he'll ram him against a wall!

COMBATSYS: Kain blocks ElFuerte's El Fuerte Spark.

Kain             0/-------/=======|====---\-------\0         ElFuerte

Kain is caught somewhat by surprise by El Fuerte coming charging through his flames, and it's enough for the wrestler to collide with him. Unfortunately for El Fuerte, it's not enough for Kain to be caught completely off guard. He's ready for the impact with the wall, twisting his body and preparing himself for the strike.

Pinned up against the wall, Kain looks calmly at El Fuerte, directly in the eyes. Then his clothing begins to move as though a strong breeze was passing by. A moment later flame begins billowing out before a massive blast of fire explodes from Kain, engulfing everything around him. Including El Fuerte, if he's not quick enough to back off.

COMBATSYS: Kain successfully hits ElFuerte with Schwarze Kreuz.
- Power hit! -

What do you mean that didn't work!? El Fuerte slams Kain into the wall and locks eyes with him, staring right back at him right before he...explodes?? Because that's what it looks like to the luchador, from that angle, one moment he's ramming the other man to the other side of the arena, then the next he's getting enveloped by fire and is flung aside from the explosion. The sound is so deafening he can't even scream, his teeth clench tightly and he once again, rolls about on the ground and off the arena.

"Guh!" He grunts as he lifts himself back inside looking quite dazed. "That is one...." The luchador mumbles as he begins to charge again now on his last fumes. "Spicy enchilada!!!" If at first you don't succeed try again is what they say. El Fuerte is going to slam Kain on the wall even if it's the last move he does!

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte has reached second wind!

When El Fuerte gets up after that Kain's opinion of the luchadore moves up a notch. Being able to get back onto your feet after taking a blast like that at such close range takes some real grit. Of course, just because Kain respects him a bit more doesn't mean he's going to make things any easier on the wrestler. It's more likely to have the opposite effect, really.

Kain swings to the side as El Fuerte charges him, noting the wobble to the other man's stride. Well, that's really to be expected. And it's probably just going to be getting worse. As he gets to the wrestler's side, Kain snaps out with a kick to his torso, a blue glow surrounding his foot to add a chi blast to the impact.

COMBATSYS: Kain successfully hits ElFuerte with Medium Kick.
~ Cruel hit! ~

Kain             1/-----==/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2         ElFuerte

El Fuerte SLAMS! But not against his intended target! Looks like he hit the wall instead! Poor wall, and poor Fuerte! Not only the recoils is pretty intense but there's also the fact that Kain got on his blind spot and promptly kicked him on the side! The Luchador grumbles as he is pushed away, wheezing hard before he spits to one side. He can withstand damage like no one's business but all this energy is really disorienting.

Grunting with annoyance and pain...but mostly pain, the masked warrior makes as if he's going to make another mad dash for Kain, save he jumps clear over him this time aiming to plant his feet on his back, wrap his hands around his face and then flip him backwards in an attempt to smash his head in on the ground! Probably last thing he can manage in his condition but, screw it, he will lucha till the end!

COMBATSYS: ElFuerte can no longer fight.

When he sees El Fuerte barreling toward him, Kain brings up his arm in a defensive position. He's rather expecting a head-on attack... and is a bit surprised when El Fuerte suddenly leaps over him and lands with his feet planted on Kain's back. The wrestler gets his hands on Kain's head and starts pulling backwards, but by that point Kain has had enough time to process what's going on and start reacting to it.

Kain's back arches painfully for a few moments while the luchadore pulls, but then Heinlein relaxes and goes with the motion, letting himself be flipped and then twisting to catch himself before his head can be slammed into the floor. He swiftly brings one hand up, fire swirling around his fingers... but then sees that El Fuerte isn't getting back up. And while Kain is very much not a nice person, he's also not going to kick the man while he's down. As long as it doesn't look like he'll be getting back up. The fire is snuffed out, and Kain turns to look out over the cheering crowd. Yes, many of them probably would have preferred to see El Fuerte win, but they still like seeing people get beaten up in general.

COMBATSYS: Kain takes no action.
