KENICHI MURATA | RELENTLESS DRAGON


They were off once again, soaring through the air towards the next spot on their hollow hunt. Of course, whereas the first scene was essentially relatively harmless with no casualties in sight - this one was particularly gruesome. There was something of an amalgam - which appeared at first in his eyes as two hollows - between a rider and a horse. What drew his gaze momentarily was six corpses laid out around the hollow. A fierce scowl set in on the face of the relentless martial artist. She spoke about going gentle? Well, none of that would be applied here. He could tell this was an enemy he wanted to take down the moment he saw those corpses.

As before, Sasha employed the same strategy, diving down rapidly to release the young man into the area to serve as a distraction. However, there was a particular issue with that plan this time around. The horse rider hollow had robbed them of the element of surprise. Black ink formed into the shape of a sword, swinging it at him immediately. Unlike the snakes, this hollow chose the aggression right from the outset. It's mobility was a far cry from someone like Sasha who he barely even registered when she caught him in mid-air. It wasn't the cleanest dodge, but Kenichi deftly contorted his body enough to avoid the slash by a hair's breadth, landing forward to stand in close proximity of the beast. He used the opportunity to pound at his chest to goad the hollow into attacking, his body radiating with energy.

"Eyes over here, bastard! Take your eyes off of me and you'll be dead before you can register what happened, ya hear!?"

He meant that, too. However, this threat was fast. Kenichi possessed speed in the sense of martial prowess. Actual foot speed wasn't his forte quite yet. Kenichi circle around the hollow, choosing to keep a measure of distance between them. He had no idea what the effects the black ink might hold. The snakes had no particular abilities outside of an intimidation factor. This one seemed more versatile enough that holding punches might get him killed and that was far from his intent. He'd be far away enough that the horse hollow would have to close the distance. However, he paused in place, in preparation for an attack.

He charged forward, generating momentum around his body, generating velocity around his fist. Leaping up into the air, he shot his forward, punching the air to release an atmospheric force wave within the form of a dragon, hurdling that whirlwind of impact towards the hollow. He was aiming to knock it out in one strike with this attack but, that depended on a few scenarios.

Scenario Uno: The hollow didn't close the distance before the attack, thereby nullifying his ability to execute the attack in full.

Scenario Dos: The hollow didn't just flat out avoid the force wave and execute a counter.

He was prepared to execute the same strike again if neither of those scenarios came to pass. He wanted to take it down. There was no doubt about that, if he had to get risky and go in. That would suit him just fine. This particular hollow needed to die. If it could get its ass kicked and become hollow chow, that would be ideal.

She flew slowly, gliding around so as not to pick up too much noise, waiting patiently. Heh, so that little welp had some teeth after all~

Kenichi managed to avoid that blade by the skin of his teeth, that weapon arcing harmlessly through the air as he landed on the other side. The horse promptly turning it's attention to him and flaring it's reiryoku. A sudden VREEEE sounding as black ink coursed in towards its mouth like a cero, the air brimming with energy for a brief moment before firing, promptly plowing into the incoming shockwave and barreling through, the energy scattered into a spray of black energy flaying out like a shotgun from the impact. It wouldn't be terribly lethal, but it would surely cause some significant burns to a man like Kenichi if he wasn't careful.

It was in that very moment that Sabertooth struck, speeding in low to the ground and swiping with one of her wings, raking her claws along the steed's flank, that bright shimmer flickering through the air before she sped past Kenichi and promptly rounded behind him, her own maw opening up as a bala fired off and peppered the twin hollows, the Horse staggering ever so slightly from that clawing slash, as the rider promptly parried the bala with that darting blade, a loud ROAR screeching out as Saber launched herself back up and into the air, getting ready to circle again and wait for another opening. "Kill the mount first human!" She barked down to Kenichi as she took off, banking to avoid another black inky cero fired in her direction from the rider. All whilst that Horse hollow glared at Kenichi, as if daring him to attack.

KENICHI MURATA | RELENTLESS DRAGON


Kenichi gritted his teeth ever so slightly, his gaze remaining poised on the enemy. This is what it felt like to go up against something other than a mindless beast? It was kind of exhilarating, honestly! However, this was no time to get excited on the battlefield unless he intended to take a nice dirt nap and become a meal to his partner in crime or the hollow they faced.

Thus, when the blast of reiryoku collided with his atmospheric shockave, Kenichi immediately shifted his body towards the side, utilizing a burst of speed equivalent to shunpo or hirenkyaku to avoid the splaying blasts of energy, though a few still managed to graze against his arm, burning into his flesh ever so slightly. It was painful, but his adrenaline allowed him to ignore it for now. He could NOT allow himself to suffer a debilitating injury here. Otherwise, this mission of theirs would remain unfinished. Thankfully, for Sasha, he was not a man who half-assed anything in life, and he wouldn't do so here.

At that moment, Saber raced in, as if viewing an opening herself to soar around Kenichi and fire another wave of Bala towards the horse and rider, peppering it with another wave of energy, disrupting it's rhythm. The moment she soared up to avoid the black ink cero, Kenichi would not even dare let the horse hollow disrupt his spirit. He wouldn't rush in heedlessly, of course. That was a fool's gambit that would hasten him towards an inevitable end.

No, listening to Sasha as she called out, the current command was to attack the mount. How to do so, he wondered? A straightforward attack would only play into the beast's hands. Kenichi did not believe he could take a direct hit from a blast and come away unscathed. His body, though standing at the pinnacle of physical prowess for a human, was still capable of being annihilated all the same.

But, perhaps a two-pronged attack would secure an advantage. The fierce martial artist deduced the strategy in his mind, concluding that this was the proper path. Spinning his arms around in rapid motion, Kenichi would repeat the same technique from earlier - this time, employing both of his hands. Atmospheric force was generated again as Kenichi punched his first arm forward launching another shockwave towards the horse. This attack was not intended to land. It was executed with the belief that the beast would choose to counter the attack the same way he did before. A clash with a clash.

It was purposely launched towards that horse in preparation, a set up for his true intent. Applying his superhuman speed along, amplified by a supernatural burst, Kenichi seemed to vanish for a moment, appearing above the mount from above, punching his fist toward the rider with his other first, launching another wave of pressure towards him from the air.

Of course, that was far from the end of his elaborate plan. Diving toward the rider, he soared through his own attack, using it as a spring to blast him toward the head of the beast with impeccable accuracy. A simple dive, given the speed of his enemy, would never allow him to close the distance in enough time. However, guided by the fierce winds of one of his signature techniques, he was able to reach him in less than a few seconds.

Drawing his fists back, he'd quickly execute a devastating palm thrust towards the horse's mount, aiming to crush it and deal the horse below a devastating hit. Even if it happened to counter, Kenichi was prepared to remain atop the beast and keep piling on a flurry of strikes. If this opportunity had reaped the benefits he was aiming for, this could turn the tide and allow Saber an opening of her own.

He was giving it his all to checkmate the opponent, to make them falter enough to present an opening. Would it work?

The gambit certainly would be a funky one. That sudden burst of speed following the shockwave would have the hollow acting predictably. Another bright cero charged but this time from the mount's maws, aiming for the incoming shockwave before firing and overpowering it. And as Kenichi suddenly sped in and launched that attack, the Mount slashed, cutting that shockwave in half just in time to see the man unleash that powerful palm down onto the horse's head! It's mask splintered, cracking as blood burst from it's head, causing it to collapse to the ground, shrieking in pain! Down, but still not out!

And just as Kenichi started piling on the punches, he'd feel a blade lunging to pierce his shoulder, aiming to spear him, But that blade wouldn't get the chance to go very deeply, the massive talons from Sabertooth suddenly clamped down on the creature's head and torso, clamping down, puncturing the creature's head and shoulder before with a jarring PRY, her veil faltered and she ripped the hollow's torso apart, FAR less durable than it's mount counterpart, as the two halves were theown apart. and she then PLUNGED her maw into the horse's spine, clamping down and ripping a few ribs from it's chest, causing another gush of blood as both she AND Kenichi would ravage it's body. The thing surging, trying to lift itself up. As ink would erupt from it's body. Sharp little blades flying from it's body, no doubt dovering the both of them in cuts, before at long last, it slumped and collapsed, the light leaving it's eyes.

Bleeding in a few spots, Saber snorted and gave a little chuckle, peering down at Kenichi. "Well well, look at you, still alive. Looks like you remain uneaten to......today..." She trailed off and suddenly began looking around. Immediately her voice dropped low. "That fucker is coming." She hissed.

The air above the city was an absolute mess. rippling and slowly peeling open, as a monstrous garganta peeled apart. And the beast's head slowly peeled its way ut into the open. At first, it simply seemed dark...ominous. A massive black hood. And that is when it began to spill out. Little white points seemingly showing up from the darkness of it's hood. Before finally reaching out.

Crouching Dragon, Hidden Tiger[Saber/Kenichi]  - Page 4 HEADER_fa9cc30f2589953404a0a01ef9915b16

"GRAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH"

That dull noise filled the air, it's spiritual pressure bubbling out as it emerged. Slow. But powerful. Those dozens of hands peeling out from it's hood, eyes opening at the center of those palms. Eyes that all looked directly at the pair down below.It was no Gillian, THAT at least was clear. But it was still the size of a two story building. And even not, bright shining stars of energy formed at the tips of it's fingers. Ceros prickling to life.

Without hesitation, Saber promptly CLAMPED her teeth into the back of Kenichi's shirt and she promptly bolted to the side, carrying him in her sudden burst of speed as the air howled around them, the brilliant glow of the ceros firing off and burning through the section of the road they had just been on roaring out as a few nearby structures began to creak and crumble.

"Dishish the one!" She hissed at the human before finding a bit of cover in the trees, promptly spitting him out. "I tried to kill this idiot a few days ago. But unfortunately, my poison doesn't seem to effect him. We'll have to work together on this one. I get you close. You punch through that thick skin of his." She murmured. Truth be told? She normally would have just ditched the area. But this particular hollow had been none too happy about her attacking them. It had been hunting her for quite a while now. Any time she got more than a few miles away from it it somehow found her. And so, this little human would help her get rid of this little problem for good. But well, he didn't need to know that.

KENICHI MURATA | RELENTLESS DRAGON


Kenichi grinned from ear to ear, visibly pleased to see his ambitious strategy bearing some measure of fruit. It wasn't as impeccable as he intended, but it was successful, it achieved his aim. That was more than the relentless martial could ask for in a battle like this. He was prepared to take damage the moment he charged in, but seeing the hollow's mask burst open and splinter in a bloody mess had assured him that he could go layer punch after punch without worrying about the consequence. He was half-correct in that assumption. Even as the beast collapsed and shrieked in pain, it was far from defeated.

A spear pierced through his shoulder as he executed a flurry of strikes. This, too, was painful but adrenaline and sheer willpower prevented the relentless dragon from piling on the blows. Of course, Sasha's arrival would prevent that spear from going any deeper as, much like a fierce predator of the wild, she would ruthlessly soar in and tear the hollow's body apart, removing mount from horse. Kenichi joined her in the assault as he continued to strike at the beast while she continued to devour and crunch into it's body.

Ink would shoot out, covering them both in cuts but by the end of it, the light in the hollow' eyes finally dimmed out. Kenichi sighed softly, grinning in Saber's direction, chuckling at her words. Of course, he would remain uneaten today. He had no intent of becoming his enemy's meal or even his partner. He opened his mouth to speak until he followed Saber's eyes, noticing a disturbance in the air.

That fucker is coming? Kenichi cast his gaze towards the space in the air rippling and tearing apart, until a massive beast in black hood with multiple hands entered the battlefield, gazing at them from below. Kenichi wouldn't be granted the chance to look at it for too long, however. Much like saber had before, she swooped in at a breakneck pace, using her fangs to pick him up by his shirt, soaring into a cover in the trees, promptly spitting him out to give him clear instruction.

His eyes loomed around to gaze out before he nodded his head. This time, it wouldn't be a one man job with another soaring in for sneak attacks. It would take two to win this dance. She'd get him close and he'd be the muscle to break through his thick skin. He gazed at the cut in his shoulder and his arms, tightening his muscles, nodding his assent. It was time to act. Time to finish the hunt.

"Alright. Sounds like a plan to me. Let's do this. That thing seems like he's out for blood. I certainly can't let it go wild in the city and cause any more damage, and I don't want it to kill you, either. You soar in, I'll punch as hard as I can to break this bastard down with my fists."

Ah, excellent. He was paying attention. She smirked a little, pleased to hear that he was ready. Most mortals would be terrified of such a sight. At the very least, he seemed to be quite a cut above the rest when it came to stupidity fueled bravery. He even seemed pumped to get to work. She did however.... pause.... furrowing her brows behind her mask when he went so far as to say that he didn't want her to get hurt. There was.... alright, well that was ... a lot to unpack? What was he, developing an attachment to her? Ugh, they didn't have time for her to tell him what a stupid thing that was to say. She'd just have to settle.

"That's cringe." She murmured, before she promptly snagged him by the shirt and tossed him into the air, her whole body crackling with reiryoku, pumping fuel into her limbs before she Shot into the air! He would land squarely on her back as the pair rocketed up into the air, her wings pounding several times before she simply began to jet around, using her spiritual energy to fly around and streak through the air. Those hands rapidly followed. More shining gleams littering the skies before blaring out in a number of ceros, forcing Saber to spin and twist through the air, the trees rushing around them as she wove her way toward the hollow itself, dodging those bright green rays of searing light. And all at once, suddenly they were upon it.

Those hands sprang in, reaching in to try and catch Saber before they could close in on it's body. Heh, this idiot thought she'd be caught~

Kenichi might be too out of his speed league to appreciate what was happening, but as those hands closed in, Sabertooth's body slowly compressed. Her body partially turning into a liquid, slowly narrowing her profile until her speeding form, and Kenichi, simply slipped straight through the gap. And once she was past those fingers, she promptly SWELLED back to her normal size. Thank goodness the hands weren't that close to being shut yet, or Kenichi, without the ability to compress himself, might have died.

Both of them CRASHED into the hollow's body with such speed that it was lifted clean off it's feet, crashing into the nearest building with such force that the windows shattered! Saber wasn't able to fully mitigate the damage. The impact alone caused a CRUNCH in her limbs, bones cracking, and that hard bony armor of hers punctured as several nails from those hands pucntured through her body, stabbing into her frame as she sank her claws in... only for them to crunch under the hollow's rough skin.

She was too rocked by the impact to even shout to Kenichi, she just had to TRUST that Kenichi wouldn't be too overwhelmed by the hands. SHE intended to handle those. She threw her head back and raised her head, a cero roaring to life within her maw, energy crackling viciously before her fangs as she pumped reiryoku into it and then fired into the mess of hands that surrounded the both of them. Trying to knock them away from them, in hopes of giving Kenichi at least enough time to break that tough exterior so that she could get in there and start using her corrosive claws and fangs. If they could cripple this thing, then they could kill it!

KENICHI MURATA | RELENTLESS DRAGON


Kenichi didn't even have the time to reply to that murmur, offering only a playful grin and shrug before he was promptly pulled up by Saber and tossed into the air. Perhaps it was cringe, but that isn't what mattered at the moment. There was still a colossal multi-hand hollow to deal with. Any form of her chewing him out could be held off until the battle had concluded. As she shot forward through the air, Kenichi would land squarely on her back as they rocketed up into the air. Kenichi maintained a balance so he wouldn't slip as Saber flew around, streaking through the air, those hands rapidly tailing them from behind.

Each hand would launch a wave of ceros while the tiger hollow weaved, evading every ray of light poised in their direction. Kenichi saw those hands closing in on them only for Saber to spectacularly avoid the hollow's grasp by partially turning her body into a liquid, eluding its fingers with precise speed. To Kenichi, even with his enhanced focus, it was almost a blur. It was now that the man found himself humorously humbled by that comment she said before this began. Compared to that realm of speed? He might as well have been a turtle. Well, the stronger than average turtle at least. She soared through the air like a state of the art fighter jet.

And then... BOOOM. Both of them crashed into the hollow's body at top speed, crashing into the nearest building, shattering windows. At that moment, Kenichi knew it was his turn to execute his part of the objective. He had no common idea of the durability of this vast create with multiple hands.

His body took a portion of damage from the impact as well but he balanced himself enough before they crashed, allowing his body to remain upright. To be honest, he didn't have time to analyze his condition. He didn't know if those hands would overwhelm him. Yet, he was a fearless man. They had to take him down here. If he had to go all out, then so be it. Kenichi knew she couldn't speak at the moment. They were in the midst of battle. If her cero had successfully resulted in knocking the enemy hollow's hands away, Kenichi would give his all to his next strikes, focusing every fiber of strength he could bring to bear in this moment.

The beauty of his signature technique - or one of them at least - from earlier was that there was a twofold function to the strike. The first he utilized against the horse was when he struck against the space in front of him to create an atmospheric shockwave. He focused the force and velocity from his strike into the medium of air, allowing for such bursts of impact to fly toward the enemy. In that moment, Kenichi deduced that at such a close range, it was an opportune moment to use the other function of that attack.

That was, to transmit the rotational force of his strikes into an object or even an opponent, amplifying its potential damage. He drew his fists back, generating rotational force around both of his fists. There was no time for a fancy set up where he could wind them up entirely but he didn't need it here. The sheer ferocity, coupled with the rotational force of his hips allowed him to mercilessly strike at the rough exterior of the multi-handed hollow.

Whereas before, there were shockwaves sent hurdling through the air, any strike that landed against its body would feel as if all of that accumulated kinetic energy was constantly being forced into the hollow's frame. Pure, aggressive, unbridled force. One strike. Two strike. Three strikes. Even if this act broke his arms, he would keep attacking until he landed a shattering blow into this hollow's defenses. His body was already screaming out in pain, but if Saber could cast her gaze enough to see him, she would see nothing but a fiercely determined grin on his face. Some might call it maniacal, even. When forced to fight for his life, Kenichi was truly capable of his own monstrous killing intent, and it was being shown in full display here.

All he needed was for one strike to land through, to break through his exterior and allow Saber enough of an opportunity to go in and strike at this thing with her fangs and claws. They had gotten so far, and he'd be damned if this is where he met his end.

This fucker had better be as strong as she'd hoped. She fought tooth and nail. Those hands all closing in on the pair. Her whole body was a blur. Twisting, swiping, bashing at those hands that threatened to reach in and plow through Kenichi's body as well as her own. It was only by the sheer speed with which she struck that those hands were battered away, but it couldn't make her invincible. Every hard collission was a nail, or a knuckle that bashed into her frame. Some breaking off inside of her, others simply cracking her rough hide.

To Kenichi, he would likely see a valiant feline, fiercely keeping those hands from piercing him. It would seem like she was protecting him. But, frankly. she was protecting herself. In this very moment, she hated him. Why couldn't he be fast, why did SHE have to get him in this close? And some small part of her simply was preparing herself to liquify and LEAVE him here to die. And yet, those air current puches landed, and Kenichi would find his won bones and knuckles creaking. His already-broken skin would crack and rip as it bashed against that incredibly hard frame.Even as every single impact made the air around them shake. That hollow continued to take the hits. Until at long last, blood spurted from it's chest, and finally a hot, loud CRUNCH would be heard as that hard outter shell finally cracked, and those hands all SCREECHED, filling the air in pain. But without that fading death rattle. The beast wasn't dead. It wasn't anywhere NEAR dead. And suddenly, those hands all opened up. Palms spreading wide as Ceros suddenly revved all around them!

There was a hot, wet squish as Sabertooth reached around him and plunged her claw into the broken flesh, sinking her claws in before she grabbed onto Kenichi's back. No time to be gentle. She burst out through those hands, her body liquifying as she sped out. But as those Ceros went off, they wouldn't fully escape the blast.

Fwoosh.

A soft, gentle sound. The sound of a concussive shell expanding at such speed that it ruptured the ear drums. Deafening before the sound could even register. Well...at least thats what nearby humans woudl hear. But for more durable creatures like Saber and Ken, they'd hear the deafening BOOM. Leaving nothing but a loud ringing as the both of them were fired from that tangle of limbs, ejected with the combined speed of Saber and the energy of the exploding Ceros as they promptly were sent crashing through a window, a loud CRASH as they plowed through a dining room, Sabertooth's body, halfway between liquid and flesh, slammed clean through a wall, managing to cushion Kenichi's body by pure chance befoe plowing clean through the other opposite wall of the building and out onto the street. Both of them scorched by the explosion, but at the very least, having avoided destruction.

Saber rolled over onto all fours from her back, her body still trying to reform, large chunks of her hide missing. Some of her liquified body had been evaporated in the blast, and was now simply missing as she refomed, thick dregs of blood drooling onto the ground beneath her as she panted, and checked on the human. "Get.... off your ass. Or I'm eating you to heal myself." She growled at him, peering around the building.

The beast was still alive and kicking. Smoldering as it shuddered out of a massive cloud of dust, it's whole body singed by it's own ceros. Still gushing blood from the wound in it's chest, and it's body covered in scorchmarks. Even some areas of it's countless limbs were scorched. But even eating the detonation of so many ceros, after taking Kenichi's special technique. And even being stabbed with Saber's claws. It still lumbered toward them. Pissed.

Ah fuck.

"Alright. Back to our old roles. You distract. I kill it. If you get in my fucking way I'm eating you." She snarled, in a TERRIBLE mood thanks to her injuries. Annoyed that Kenichi hadn't been more effective! But well, still. He'd actually DONE what she'd hoped he'd do. Frankly it was her fault for not realizing just how durable this thing was. But she chose to simply believe he was incapable.

saber SHOOK herself, her limbs screaming before she promptly took a running start and then launched herself into the air! Circling but without the full speed she usually was capable of. Clearly not in her best shape. Actually, she wanted to fucking collapse. But she needed this thing dead. As quickly as possible.

KENICHI MURATA | RELENTLESS DRAGON


Even after all that, that towering multi-handed beast still stood. Kenichi couldn't even celebrate the fact his series of attacks had finally bore fruit before he and Saber sank her fangs into his flesh and carried him off, only for both of them to be caught within a blast they couldn't escape entirely. The relentless martial artist couldn't even register that deafening boom as they were fired off from that tangle of limbs as they were promptly sent crashing through a dining room. It was, perhaps, a blessing in disguise that Kenichi's body was cushioned by Saber's half liquid, half fleshed frame as they slammed through the opposite side of the wall and out onto the street.

Though they were scorched by the explosion, they had avoided being annihilated entirely. By this point, there was no question Kenichi had bore a significant of damage. His body was a pinnacle of several years spent cultivating his martial prowess, but he was not a walking shield. He was still a flesh and blood human. Supernatural, but not infallible. His body had several burns marks. His knuckles and the skin on his hands were a bloody mess right now. Glass shards lodged in the flesh in his legs. There were fang marks on his back. A wound in his shoulder from he last battle. Blood was pouring from his head, almost blinding his vision until he wiped it away with his arm.

And yet, even through all that, even through his body screaming out in pain, as if begging him to stop, Kenichi roared out in anger. He was not going to die here. To hell with that. As far as he was concerned, there were too many things on his bucket list to bow out of the dance just yet! He had stronger opponents to fight, delicious food to taste, and some woman with herculean strength and stature to simp over and court! Sasha didn't need to remind him of shit! Fuck the threats! Kenichi was pissed off at himself for not being able to land a killing blow on that thing! Ignoring the pain, he hurriedly rose up from the ground, standing on his own two feet.

"I'll crush your skull with my bare hands before you even get the chance. Like hell I'll go out becoming someone else's meal."

That voice was almost unlike anything compared to the carefree tone he addressed her with. There was a cold stare in his eyes, but those eyes weren't directed at her. He was gazing defiantly at that monstrosity lumbering towards them as it stepped out of that cloud of dust. Angered. Oh yeah? Well, he was pissed too. He didn't care if he passed out after this thing was defeated. He wanted to take it down, and avoid causing any more damage to the city.

"Yeah, yeah. I get it. Old roles. I play the decoy and you go in for the kill. Let's just take this bastard down already."

Kenichi was almost no different from Saber at this point. He was agitated that she wasn't the least bit grateful for him risking his life to assist her in taking down hollows for her own benefit. On the other hand, he wasn't entirely a clean soldier himself. This was a mutual deal, but still... he resisted the urge to mutter the word bitch under his lips. He took a deep breath, forcing himself forward through sheer grit alone, his legs burning with pain with each step. He didn't care if his balance was compromised, that his body, too, may have been minutes away from collapse; he'd force his body to go at whatever speed he could manage. When she set off into the air, Kenichi turned towards that wounded, multi-handed creature.

Cracking his bloody knuckles, Kenichi would charge forward Honestly, he was at a loss as to how distract something with multiple hands that could shoot off several rays of energy. Kenichi wondered what the hell Saber had done to piss this thing off. He supposed even a hollow could hold a grudge. Think! Dammit! Think! There was no way this thing was going to let him get as close as they did before, and Kenichi didn't really want to get close either. If he took a direct hit from one of those beams of light, he'd probably be done for.

Honestly? You know? At this point, he had no idea. None whatsoever. So, Kenichi did the only thing he was famous for and that was running towards the beast at full throttle, revving his arm up with as much rotational force as he could manage. He didn't get close enough to where he'd be in it's absolute territory but he was close enough to launch off another atmospheric shockwave towards the multi-handed hollow. Even after that?

No matter how much his arms were being compromised, on the verge of breaking down and shattering, he kept repeating that one signature technique. He honestly wished he had more, and in some alternate universe, he had a way cooler list of tools to work with than this, but as he learned in life, you had to roll with what you were given. Might as well spam it and let the chips fall where they may.

Shockwave after shockwave was propelled towards the multi-handed hollow, attempting to aim for the weak spot he created. However, he didn't remain motionless. No matter how much pain his body was in, how much he wanted to collapse, he just put everything on the line. They didn't possess nearly half the power he held from before, but he possessed enough strength to utilize them in a way that the hollow could not simply ignore.

Hopefully, in the air, Sasha could soar in and deal a blow at that weak spot he'd created. In the mean time, after that flurry of about five or six dragons composed entirely of atmospheric force and wind, Kenichi utilized whatever speed he had left to keep himself on his feet, any burst of speed he could bring to bear to make sure he didn't end up being blasted away or hit by a cero. He had to avoid those at any cost. His life depended on it. Barely avoid it, avoid it by a hair's breadth. He just had to live. That's all he wanted to do. Live.

She was tapped out.

That was the plain and simple of it. Firing off Ceros, Balas, and all of that jazz had absolutely exhausted her. She didn't have the spirit energy to continue plowing through that damn thing. Not without potentially killing herself in the process. which, naturally would defeat the purpose. Unable to even use her spirit energy to fly, she instead pumped her wings powerfully, launching herself out into the air and ...away from the fight. A soft Tsk escaping her as she heard Kenichi going off behind her. Little brat, talking back to her. And some small part of her considered just ditching.

But she was GREEDY. And Paranoid. There was FAR too much on the table now. If she left, then that monster hollow was going to eat Kenichi. Which, to the layman, fine right? But she was smarter than that. That thing would only get far more powerful off a meal like that. And then it would continue hunting her, and any hope she had of killing it, or maybe even escaping it, would be out the window. And... If they COULD kill this thing. And she ATE it? She couldn't pass that up. She could NOT pass that up!


--

The hulking mass roared as Kenichi began to speed toward it's body, those Hands turning to fists, bright glowing eyes lering from the dark shroud of it's hood as it protected itself. Wrapping it's arms around itself and blocking those incoming shockwaves. But it was quite clear that the cero explosions had scathed it. As those shockwaves plowed into it's arms and left bleeding cracks all over it's body. But continued to keep it's main body safe as it began charging toward, rushing toward Kenichi, slamming it's fists into the ground, trying to smash his body into the dirt. It simply wasn't capable of matching his step techniques, but it still was quite fast, enough that even just running around, it put up pressure as those shockwaves riddled it's arms!

And just as suddenly, those arms opened up and its fists SLAMMED into the ground! A burst of energy coursing through the earth before erupting causing a sudden deep rumble as the blow cratered its immediate location, and caused the streets to crack before Ceros were fired into the sewers below, causing a burst up hot reiryoku to erupt around the creature in a grid pattern, following the sewer lines!

Dust. debris, and all manner of destruction billowed up from the explosion, clouding the air with dust and mess as the creature started tearing through the rubble to try and find Kenichi.

It would be then that Sabertooth flew back in.

She had been completely out of energy. But that didn't mean she was out of the fight. She'd found the best energy source around: The Two hollows that she and Kenichi had slaughtered just moments before this beast had shown up. Having devoured as much of them as she possibly could as fast as she could. Her body had already begun to mend itself, and her energy reserves billows back to life. She hadn't even really bothered to eat all of them, Just the heads and the main bodies. Knowing that she had to act before Kenochi was eaten. She'd launched herself high up into the air, until the town below as just a speck. Briefly flashing just how small this epic battle was. The nearby city hadn't even really responded yet to all the commotion.

And then she dove. Her spiritual energy ramping up as she focused it along her skin. Hardening it, coating herself in a hard shell of her own Reiryoku as she sped down, propelling herself as fast as she could as she rapidly began to speed towards the ground. Even her body liquifiedm narrowing her profile, reducing the air resistance so that she could go even faster, concentrating her riryoku into as small a space infront of her as she could manage. Until at long last she struck like a meteor, her body flying through the air like a bullet. Her form silently plowing into the Hollow, striking it dead center in the wound in it's chest, before plunging clean through and plowing it into the ground. Half an instant later, came the loud sonic BOOM as the compressed air finally expanded and blew the dust and debris out in a clean, forceful bubble, shattering the glass of the nearby buildings as the creature was promptly plowed into it's own crater.

The shell she'd made around herself had only managed to mitigate so much damage. Even though it's open wound was soft and squishy, once she hit the back end of the hollow, she once again hit that durable skin from the inside. Her only saving grace was that she'd lost much of her energy on the creature's guts, a bright red plume of blood and viscera erupting from it's chest as well as some of it's other wounds. But all the same, she was still fucked up.

She'd managed to mitigate any damage to her mask by putting her front claws first, but those limbs and her wings were practically riddled with breaks, and the rest of her body was a mess, having cut and stuck herself on the bones inside of this monster. IN any normal circumstance, she likely would have been disabled until her body could heal. But she was surrounded by a meal.

She was in agony. Her frame was screaming, but still, she forced herself to turn to the hot mess surrounding her and EAT. Tearing into the flesh and sucking it down. The hollow, still alive, hissed weakly. And she promptly changed her priotities, and began burrowing up towards it's head. Ripping through flesh as it's ams twitched, her body already beginning to rapidlhy mend. She climbed ontop of it's chest and pushed back that hood, shwoing the gnarled, twisted mask of the horrific creature.

She was too tired to say anything sly or clever. And she simply lunged. Sinking her fangs into it's mask, and ripping it off, making it scream as she pried it away, it's limbs twitching helplessly until finally.. she got to it's face. It's real...human face, behind all that flesh and armor. What was left of what had once been a human. And then she clamped her mouth down and tore it out, swallowing it in one go as the body promptly went limp entirely. Allowing her to resume gorging herself in peace. Absolutely caked in guts and blood. GRINNING from ear to ear.
