[adm]Based off a private message I saw, we can assume that Tetsuya is going to need some time to decide if he is going to pursue Nagato and Radioactive or not. Therefore, I will allow Nagato to begin posting; while Tetsuya is still back at the base. As the fight should be heading further towards space. [/adm]

It was amusing to Nagato when Radioactive tried countering his Shinra Tensei and Gran Rey Ceros with explosions of his own in an attempt to protect the surrounding sectors. From a beast like the Shark Shinigami, protecting allies by using offensive blasts capable of demolishing cities made sense but most people would usually use a shield or barrier in order to accomplish the same. Evidently he didn't care at all about the state of Sector R, likely due to it already having been evacuated, which showed that despite Radio's alignment with an organization like the Vanguard he was still the raging beast he'd always been who cared very little about his surroundings. However, he would be mistaken in thinking he could cancel out the Shinra Tensei Nagato had unleashed a few moments prior. While he would make headway in slowing it down and bringing it to a near stop, the force wave didn't actually dissipate until Nagato himself commanded it to.
Despite the truly calamitous clash of powers between the Arrancar and Shinigami, Nagato stood firm, unshaken in the slightest. Though he could feel burning on his skin from the nuclear detonations and his own power, his special Multi-Layered Fiber Plate Hierro known as the strongest Steel Skin in existence was able to reduce and minimize any damage he normally would have taken. Along with this, much of the explosive power Radio released had been used to counteract and stop his Shinra Tensei so the Hueco Mundo King had been able to avoid most of the potential damage anyway. The combat styles of the two fighters was quickly becoming evident as Radio's own aggressive use of his power was resulting in damage to himself, while Nagato's preferred "sit back and stay protected" position was keeping him safe so far. However, this fact would be changing very soon as a plan formulated in the Arrancar's mind to force his opponent into a corner he might not be able to get out of.
When the Shinigami beast propositioned Nagato to move away from the battlefield, seemingly in an attempt to protect the other sectors and the Moon as a whole, a chuckle actually escaped the lips of the Arrancar. He didn't expect his opponent to actually care that much about his allies or the Vanguard as a whole. Though Nagato did plan on following the shark monster, right this instant he had a different plan. Looking up at his enemy, an enemy who at this moment represented his entire species in the eyes of the Sage, Nagato grinned slightly and began speaking again. "You think I want or need to prove anything to you? Though large, you're still an insect that merely needs to be squashed. Here, I'll show you something nobody else has seen. Be proud, Radioactive Yunari. You shall be the first to witness the end." After Nagato finished speaking these words, he launched all five of his Zanpakutō, which took the form of short black blades without hilts, directly at the ground around him. Reitsu was surging through all five of the weapons, though what was about to occur may still have been unclear to Radioactive.
Without speaking a release command, oceanic levels of energy erupted from each Zanpakutō blade and Nagato himself. Initially these bursts of power were sent out in every direction, making 6 large spheres of crimson energy over thirty feet in diameter each in close quarters of each other. However, this only remained for a few seconds at most. After the short waiting period, the spheres exploded into massive pillars of energy that reached thousands and thousands of meters into the sky. These pillars destroyed and vaporized anything and everything they touched, completely collapsing what remained of Sector R. The sheer Spiritual Pressure radiating from the pillars would have been enough to crush even someone of Tetsuya's strength beneath it, and had he not been ejected from the Moon already he likely would've been brought to the bring just from standing nearby. These pillars remained like this for seemingly an eternity, despite it only lasting a minute or so. However, the energy didn't seem to dissipate at all....if anything it just increased in magnitude over time, especially the last few seconds.
Though at this point the pillars of energy would usually shrink until they disappeared and Nagato Tengan's Ressureccion form would be revealed, something a little strange was occurring instead. The very tops of the pillars suddenly began moving: They all bent inwards until they the pillar tops were facing a single focused point in the center of all six of them, and without warning the energies crashed into each other forming a moderately sized sphere made of pure Reiryoku. After this happened, all 6 pillars pulled off from the ground and rapidly shrunk until all the energy released met at this newly formed sphere far, far above the Moon's surface. This new sphere remained completely still and unchanging for a few moments. To Radio, it may not even seem recognizable even though it was still Nagato Tengan's power. During this entire transformation phase, the amount of energy seemed to be endlessly increasing, despite the Arrancar only releasing his Zanpakutō one level....or so one might think.
After the temporary stabilization of his energy, Nagato pushed forward yet again. The sphere of energy's entire makeup seemed to be changing dramatically as even it's color switched from the typical crimson that represented the Arrancar King to a combination of black and white energy that swirled around rapidly, chaotic in it's nature. Suddenly the energy burst outwards in every direction on a level that could only be described as planetary in magnitude. The power now being released would cause almost all electronics on the Vanguard's Moon base to malfunction, leaving the celestial body in darkness. This would affect all Sectors, including those that had been untouched by the invading forces. The only remaining light in the sky was from the sphere as it seemed to block out the light coming from space entirely. With one final burst similar to a sonic boom that could even cause damage to Radioactive himself, the energy finally began to clear away until all that remained was a single man standing in it's wake.
Nagato's form had changed completely both in aspects of physical traits and his clothing. All of his outfit had been stripped away, replaced by what appeared to be a torn up bottom half of a Gotei member's Shihakushō. His skin had become utterly white, like the color and not skin tone. Also, the right half of his body seemed to be covered in a scale-like cover though that was actually his skin itself. A haori made out of what seemed to be his skin was now draped over his shoulders, with four spikes sticking upwards as it's collar. Six black magatama stretched across his torso from shoulder to shoulder, and on his back a large circle with inner circles and a dot in the middle resembling his normal eyes formed as well. Horns sprouted from his forehead, with the right being significantly longer than the left. Finally, his hair also became white and shortened to just a couple inches in length.
After this transformation was completed, Nagato spoke to his adversary yet again though this time even his voice was altered as it seemed deeper and more sinister than before. "This is Sabio de Seis Rutas, my Segunda Etapa. The form you see represents the eradication of yourself, your family, your race, and your world. Do not fret, I understand you aren't frightened. The insect does not fear the boot. For one last time in your life, prepare Shinigami."
As he finished speaking, Nagato flicked the wrist of his right arm which seemed to be the command to summon a long staff into his hand that ended in a large ring with six smaller rings hanging off it. Directly in front of the major ring, a small sphere formed that appeared extraordinarily similar to the black and white sphere that encompassed Nagato fight before his Segunda Etapa transformation completed. This new sphere was extremely dense and possessed a total energy far greater than even a Segunda enhanced Cero Oscuras, and was known as the Tendōdama Cero. Though it was only the size of a basketball, it was clear the destructive capabilities it possessed were on a level not seen yet in this battle. With a small movement of his staff, Nagato caused the sphere to begin moving downwards towards the Moon below. The makeup of this Cero meant it could not be absorbed or altered by outside forces, and if it came into contact without anything it would explode outwards into an inferno of energy capable of taking a chunk out of the Moon that would be felt across it's entire surface. If Radio tried stopped it or counteracting it in his current form, he'd likely suffer from severe injuries including extreme damage to his body's surface and massive internal damage. Apparently Nagato was more interested in causing destruction in general than directly fighting his opponent at this point.
"Radioactive Yunari? That's interesting. Did you steal that information from the identity my sister took and my project code name?"
There was a hard laugh had from The Nuclear Shark as he heard the words of Nagato reach him in regards to his taunts and actions. However, that cackle would drown out, fade and be replaced with a more somber face as The Nuclear Hulk let out softened sigh. The moment The Arrancar's energy started to sky rocket and surge to new heights, Radioactive understood full well what was going to happen because his primal instinct guided him towards the conclusion the male wanted to destroy this place.
And this scene of dismay and destruction -- was familiar and comforting.
None of the over-top alterations to the scene around him in the moment. As it didn't matter what he destroyed as everything could be easily rebuilt. What mattered more was the fact that he managed to save and evacuate all those precious souls who called The Vanguard the home. And, by having the grace made, Radioactive could afford himself the luxury of finding himself lost in a sea of nostalgia.
Larger than life consequences? Overly powerful opponent? A family to protect? All of these questions seemed so familiar, yet so far away from Radioactive as he stared upwards at the cluster of cataclysmic power hurling towards him. It was if history was repeating itself time and again as he churned through the gears of all out war. Imagery of a knight slaying a humanized Radioactive first played through his head as he recalled the first time he died in war. Then the reflection of his monstrous prowess as a Shinigami burned through his mind, while the soft sounds of ember played sights of a family long gone in the ashes of time.
That life was so far away and Radioactive was uncertain of his place in the halls of time. His body felt boundless and unlimited, but the memories of the ones he swore his spirit and power to were finite and trapped in the chapters of history. As the chunks of space debris became obliterated under the weight of The Arrancar King's Tendōdama Cero, Radioactive found herself further staring into the scenery of oblivion and wondered if it was the same thing his wife saw before she died. As without this attachment to the Vanguard, The Nuclear Beast would be as aimless as the endless space which compassed them all.
So, in an effort to keep his psyche focused, the mind of Radioactive projected a hallucination of a slender woman with hair as white as snow and eyes as blue the most pristine seas. While her image became more realized, the bare bodied woman extended the reach of her silver tail and twitched each of her ears as she caressed the cheeks of her husband whispered in his ears: "Big R, you know what to do. Fulfill your promise to us and continue to endure and survive..."
"...yeah. I know. No need to rub it in, hun. I was just taking a moment to appreciate the scenery, is all. "
Radioactive was not one to let his wits get about him. He knew what he needed to and he would not fall prey to the madness of his mind. He understood that he was stronger than that and he needed to channel that maddening aspect of his soul into a bountiful harvest of power.
So, it is why he -- let it all go.
The hallucinations faded, the space of his mind was fixated back in reality and a dominant power was released from the primal beast within himself. It shined as brightly as the sun, radiated a warmth that dissolved all it touched and brought with it the summoning of his shikai. Flesh and skin turned to hardened orange and white scales, while all of the Beast's razor styled teeth formed all through his mouth. And, in that moment, a tail that extended five feet in length stretched out of the male's spine and fins protruded out of his head, neck and upper back.
Then, with a mighty roar aimed at the heavens, the body of the male became immensely dense and transformed The Hulk to a daunting ten feet tall giant. All the while, the male's hair would fade from a dirty blonde to a long and silk sheet of black that extended down to his backside. And, as tremendous amounts of nuclear energy flowed within him, the whites within his eyes turned to blood red and those orange pupils of his fixated their fiery sights upon his target. Once it was identified, Radioactive would let out a grim chuckle as the symbol of nuclear power appeared on his upper right chest in black ink and symbolized the stabilization of his powers.
One wrong slip -- and this whole moon could be caught up in the wrath of the nuclear beast. It took a great amount of control to maintain the prowess of nuclear energy and he had centuries worth of time to cultivate it, strengthen it and use it to his master command. Therefore, as his strong soul faced off against this enormous force, the rapid speed in which Radioactive could summon his energy came into play. While he was not a fast person in general, the enhancements in his release state allowed him to swiftly create energized attacks of mass destruction.
Therefore, the solution to prevent the moon from being destroyed was simple: fight fire with fire. By the time Radioactive unleashed a flare of golden light from the pours of his body, this eruption of pure nuclear energy surged forth from out of him with enough strength to equal his opponents moon crushing attack. In the process of performing this act, each of the attacks would have collided against one another and negated each other in an burst of power which could be felt all throughout the moon. It would come in an ungodly boom and feel as if the moon itself obliterated.
However, Radioactive would not let that happen; not so long as there was a single breath of life flowed through his being. Ergo, most of the debris generated from this flare of hellishly bright light would be dealt with by an onslaught of thousands upon thousands of white spikes being expunged from The Shark Beast's body. Each of them would collide against the chunks of debris and subdue the damage by unleashing enough heat from the nuclear energy associated with his abilities in order to vaporize most of the collateral damage to nothing.
All of this new terrority for The Nuclear Beast after spending so many years destroying either to build others up or to tear others down. He had never battled like this since he truly felt something worth fighting for during the days he spent with his own family and the times spent with The Karakura Defenders. So even he was perplexed at the way his power to destroy was being used to protect in ways only he could utilize them.
So, even if Nagato could not be visible through the burning cosmic skies of space, Radioactive would chuckle grimly and utter these words out to him:
"Well, your highness, I'm honored you are taking this seriously. However, I....can't allow you to eradicate this place. No. I don't care about this worthless base. It's the people in it I care for. It's absurd considering my track record, but I want a family, you see. And I got the feeling I won't find that family to replace the one I lost if I allow some weasels like you hacks to trample upon that."
Then, Radioactive would tap against his head and keep laughing as the hallucination of his wife continued to re-appear; while the imagery of his children shouting for him to take down and stop this hollow menace cheered in his mind as he grinned against his grim emotions and thoughts. He understood that his mind was trying to wake him up and alert him to the pain it was under, but he was the master of abuse and pain tolerance. This wasn't going to hurt him. Not here. Not now. That promise he made to his family was too strong.
"Plus, my wife didn't marry someone so weak that they'd run away from a challenge. It's why I stand here with everything that I am to stop this. I feel it's what she would want. So, because of that, I'll use the jaws of a beast to seize a way to victory. Even if this form was designed for nothing but genocide, who says I can't use it for my own damn desires? That's all I give a shit about anyway."
At this point, The Nuclear Hulk's power just kept boiling, surging and expanding to the top as this form was potent enough to destroy and skewer even the most mightiest of vizard resurrections, bring the Quincy to a mere handful and fend off release states even on par with the late General Yamamoto himself. He was an overpowered mammoth and these attributes of himself were beginning to be felt all throughout the moon as his body radiated like a light akin to a burning supernova.
When he was ready for his next attack, Radioactive would have steam exit from his mouth in high amounts before volts of yellow bio-electricity scattered across his body. This is because he was summoning a high amount of energy in order to penetrate and drill through Nagato's body. Since he was clearly faster than his physical body at the moment, The Shark Beast made up for it by releasing a multiple grand ray cero level attacks from his body. These took the shape of drills and they were intended to dig through the layers of defense of Nagato and begin boring a hole through him in order to start forcing him to take some damage.
As, these drills would be akin to the tools used to pave through the multiple layers of earth that most human used to excavate the planet. The same logic appeared here and he wanted to draw blood, lower his energy from the strain placed on his body and possibly even penetrate skin, bone and flesh for the great chance of making a direct hit that leaves a mark. It certainly wouldn't stop him, but it would leave the message that he wasn't going down without swinging. For Radioactive was the king of spam and fighting him in an energy based fight was not going to be one that could be achieved so easily.
And, to further hammer in the point, the amount of heat that he was generating was becoming so obnoxious that it reached a metaphysical level of influence through his spiritual energy and it began melting through reishi. Any attacks launched by Nagato yielded a great chance of being slowed, while their attack potency could be lowered by ten to twenty five percent by the effects of his nuclear energy tainting the area. Additionally, this would serve to assist in melting through the layers of hierro scattered across Nagato's body to help lower his health further and make him feel pressured as this colossal energy weighed down on him like a beast nagging at it's prey legs.
"Yeah, bring whatever you can and throw it at me. This is the kind of fight I've been looking for. I feel the fear of adrenaline pumping through my veins, I see my wife nagging at me to win and I've got a reason and a purpose to use my powers. It feels nice and I want to keep exploring this feeling until I can't anymore. SO COME ON!"
And with those final words echoed out in the depths of space, Radioactive mentally, physically and spiritually prepared himself to engage in -- war.

[adm]Alright, since Gin has not post, we are going to assume that Nagato got flung out of the thread by the attack. This could have been achieved by the eruption of both of their attacks removing him from the thread. In turn, Sector R would have been destroyed by Nagato, but Radioactive would have allowed time for most of the people to evacuate by keeping Nagato busy. This will then free Radioactive to try and drag himself to another Sector and Nagato would have been taken back to Hueco Mundo by one of his familiars after finding him in space. [/adm]
