As the man's blast made impact on Bing, he wasn't surprised that it didn't do anything, but was glad that he got some sort of reward from efforts in the form of a compliment. Though that moment of joy was short lived, as the handsome man put distance between each other and fired a blast. It didn't take an idiot to know how much trouble he would be in if he didn't dodge.
So jumping up into the air, he avoided the simple ball of energy. As he did, he saw that Bing had been charging for Chai and Egg, which Collan just noticed wasn't focused on the battle. So quickly he thought of an idea that sounded good in his head...but then realized wasn't good for his own health. No going back now though, he surrounded himself with his red aura and charged for Bing, attempting to throw a kick into his side.
As he did, he even took extra precaution to make sure he caught his opponent's attention by shouting "Hero Kick!"

OOC: I was told by Sketch that since Trouza hasn't been on since March, it is allowed that he can be skipped. If none of you are okay with this, I will be happy to remove this post and continue to wait.
Even after helping Etoru to the chair, the little pink plant creature still felt a little guilty for not being able to help out at least a little. But, thanks to the goatman's rather helpful pep talk about continuing on despite whatever hardships that they face which they may or may not be able to prevent at times, EGG started to feel a little bit better. Though to be honest Vi-Poi helped out EGG's guilt ridden mind as well, despite the very odd and morbid connotations about rebuilding new limbs and all that, things that at the moment the rather impressionable creature really couldn't understand too well. Hell, to some degree, EGG still doesn't realize that Vi-Poi was actually a non-organic but rather a human who has hidden his strength through very powerful magics.
Just as he pulled himself out of this funk, however, Bing Gan himself wasn't rather happy about the little pity party over the little child. Though, to be fair, who wouldn't have a bit of a wavered heart if they didn't get affected by Etoru's situation, but nonetheless the Serpent Master slithered his way over to Chai and EGG, preparing a little trick for them. And within range, Bing started unleashing a barrage of kicks towards the two grievers, with EGG covering his face as he was caught off guard quite heavily.
Thinking rather quickly, EGG knew that what he did wouldn't really hurt the white haired warrior due to the vast difference in their strengths. Finding a rather neat solution on his own, EGG generated himself a golden sphere of energy to which he pressed against one of Bing's feet, the orb solidifing into a ki sphere. Though the kicks were still painful, they were much less intense than what they would have been if the navy caped hero didn't put his EGG Barrier around one of the feet of the snake serpent. "AIYA!" EGG exclaimed as he hopped away from Bing Gan, watching as Collan decided to go in for his own attack, had an idea of his own as he realized why he was here at this point in time. Not even feeling guilty for having a separate moment to himself in order to help and figure out what was up with Etoru, the little guy quickened his pace by launching himself towards Bing himself. Curling into a rather tight somersault ball, EGG created a little shell of Ki around his body as he dashed straight for the Serpent Master, aiming to impact straight into his chest!

Chai let out a sigh of relief, smiling wide when EGG seemed to calm down. Good. 'You done yet, debby downer?' Guardia questioned, narrowing his eye. Chai opened his mouth to respond, only to let out a shocked yelp when Bing charged him and EGG! 'HEY! Not fair, you asshole!'Guardia's eye widened with a quick shout. The sword quickly flew right into Chai's grasp. Caught off guard, Chai found himself stumbling backwards to avoid his longtime foe's flurry of kicks, nearly tripping over his own cloak...! Wait a second...
[ HEAVY WEIGHTS removed. Negate bonus +75% PL when thread is turned in. ]
Chai was quick to shake off his weighted black trenchcoat, as a few kicks smacked against the fabric while he did so. Guardia's blade moved and danced about on it's own to deflect a few of the punts as well. Now only wearing a sleeveless gray shirt with a white zipper and propped collar, Chai shook off the grab, throwing it to the side and lunging over the Serpent Master with his newfound, rampant power in order to dodge the rest of his flurry. Landing behind his enemy, Chai would briefly bring a hand to his head, rubbing a few new bruises on his horns. The Serpent Master still packed a punch in this world-- Chai knew that well. They had fought previously, and Chai got his ass handed to him on a silver platter. Again.
Collan went in for his own attack, screaming the attack's cheesey name aloud, causing Chai to grit his teeth. People still yelled their attack names aloud? It was kinda dumb... 'Hey. Hey Chai.' Guardia remarked, his metallic brow waggling while the battle-ready goat bounced in place. 'Wanna see something cool?' The sword sung in an eerie, knowing tone. Chai bit his lip, unsure if he even wanted to see whatever mystery the sassy sword had in store..."Nnnnyyyyyyeeeees?" The goat spoke uncertainly, giving into temptation. The blade's single eye lit up like a star. 'Oh boy! You'll LOVE this!' The sword commented, closing his eye tight.
Cracks rippled down his hilt, centering around his now inverted eyeball. Chai let out a quick gasp as rainbow light flew from the crevasses, and a small tuft of fur flew out from the blunt of his hilt like a twitching tail. His blade extended and thickened to reach up to seven feet- just as tall as Chai- in length! The ki began to solidify into black rock, leaving only a few sinister streams of energy coursing through the middle of the rock in strange markings. All the while, Chai could feel the blade's power increase exponentially! Guardia was even stronger than Chai now!
"...What?!" The goat finally spoke, raising the blade up. 'I could do this since yesterday, long story.' Guardia prononuced. 'Now stop dawdling and FIIIIIGHT!' The blade snapped, his voice now sporting a demonic echo to it. Chai hastily nodded, opening his palm as electrical energy began to crackle, spark, and charge. EGG took initiative quickly, ki curling around his tiny form as he dashed towards Bing's stomach in a roll... But the power was far too small- it more than likely wouldn't leave a scratch on the Serpent Master.
Fighting in the face of a power like Bing with strength as insignificant as his own, knowing he was powerless to do much... It was discouraging. But, that never stopped Chai before. Inhaling deeply, the goat lifted his now massive blade high, the rainbow streams in the rock turning a shining yellow color. Swinging it down would cause a crescent of energy to fly at... EGG?
But this was no folly! The energy would gracefully touch and merge with EGG's own energy, creating a golden disc of energy around his rolling form's ki ball, leaving the tennenman below untouched- if anything, his attack appeared to be powered up greatly by Guardia's own energy now! If Guardia still had his mouth, it would be twisted into a cocky grin right now. He was clever. This attack deserved a pat on the back. Catching eye of Guarida's smugness, all Chai could do was sigh and shake his head. Did the sword really think they stood a chance?
After a burst of speed, Vi-Poi appeared over Bing’s shoulder, hanging upside down in the air. “Since I paid you zeni, I don’t have to punch you, right?” He asked his friend, giving a playful yank on the tails of Bing’s green bandana as the others geared up to do their damnedest. “Can we all have snaky codenames? I can be Viper. Get it? Vi-Per.”
Codenames plus color-coordinated uniforms! Poi’s ghost insisted.
“I like green, but maybe we could have gis with different colors and then have a pose-“ Vi-Poi’s words cut off as Collan attacked, followed quickly by EGG and some sort of crazy sword magic from Chai.
His head filled with daydreams of flashy coordinated attacks raining down upon shadowy enemies, each snazzier than the next. “I’ve got to get these guys in the Army,” He whispered to himself.
Mister Fireheart was a lot more badass than he’d thought. The roughest thing gym teachers did in Orange Star High was fish yellowy jockstraps out of the gymnasium’s pool. He gave Bing some space so he could deal with the incoming attacks, slowly rotating upright as he considered his position, thinking back to Poi’s days as a fledgling yellow belt in the Afterschool Turtle Program in West City. If Bing was sensei in this new dojo of his, maybe he would need a sempai, to help with the newbies.
He already knew Serpent Style decently, but he didn’t really know what a real sempai’s duties entailed. Back then, the sempai just brought in the sensei’s coolers and mopped sweat off the floor. One cooler had been filled with drinks for the kids, and the other had been loaded with beer for the sensei.
Etoru stared at the new Serpent students as they faced Bing-Gan with everything they had. Etoru gripped his thigh tightly, fidgeting a bit impatiently. It looked so fun!!! And he wasn't able to have any part in it. Gosh how frustrating that felt. Having to sit on the sidelines helplessly. The boy's quirky mouth quivered slightly as he writhed around restlessly. "Ermmm....."
Etoru felt even worse however, when Vi-Poi appeared behind Bing! He was so fast, Etoru didn't even register his movements! Though, he wasn't surprised. Etoru wasn't in his ascended state, so it was only natural for him to appear so fast. But that wasn't what was bugging him. Vi-Poi, like the others, were acting all casual and comfortable with Master Bing! Vi more so trying to be buddy-buddies! None of them were like Etoru in regards to showing the most respect and courtesy for his master...Etoru was like, totally the most well behaved student there could ever be.
Oh, but it didn't end there! Vi-Poi's dumb nickname...Vi-Per?! Come on! Seriously...! This was a professional martial arts school! Not some 80s cop movie! Vi was clearly trying to steal the spot as the representative for the Serpent School...and Etoru didn't like it! But it wasn't like he could call him out on it either. Bing would just look at Etoru as a nuisance, and he wouldn't even be a real student anymore...!
Etoru glared Collan next. The boy cringed so hard, he felt as if his other limbs were there. Hero Kick...seriously? HERO KICK?! Bing was focusing on students like this?! Etoru grit his teeth tightly. This was so unfair...! He had to watch this. And then he narrowed his eyes Egg's pitiful attempt at blocking Bing's kick. He really wasted so much energy for a simple kick! Ughhhh! That was such a rookie move. And then Chai and Guardia? Even lamer! Big whoop, they have a sword. Etoru could find a sword and be cooler. Swords are for the weak...unless Maeve's using it.
This was so unfair. He had to watch this junk for the next...who knows how long! All he wanted to do was prove that he was like, a gazzillion times better than these rookies, and just be done with it! But he knew he'd just make a fool out of himself if he chose to fight. It'd just be a pity fest. And besides, Bing would be disappointed afterwards. Etoru just kept his mouth shut, watching the fight rather irritated.
Bing was pleasantly surprised when he found his foot trapped by Egg's strange barrier. He shifted his foot around, unable to break the barrier with his current strength. He'd need to actually try to break free from this one, it seemed. As he poured Ki into his foot, however, it seemed Egg, Chai, and the weird talking sword were preparing some sort of combination attack! The trio attacked Bing in unison, with Collan flying in from behind as well.
"That's a good first step! Teamwork is key, after all!"
But their power wasn't enough for Bing's next action. He allowed his Ki to flow freely around him, creating a dome of explosive energy. It poured outwards in all directions, overpowering Chai and Egg's attacks, and threatening to damage the whole attacking quartet if they didn't show off some intense power.
With his counter-attack complete, Bing somersaulted into the air, waiting to see how his attack panned out. Vi-Poi spoke up as the Serpent Sensei floated in the sky, causing Bing to chuckle. "If you guys want codenames, I guess that'd be okay. And you can wait out this round, if you'd like. I think personal training would work better for someone like you and Etoru." He of course was referring to both Vi-Poi and Etoru's power, but he wouldn't state that out loud. He didn't want to hurt his new students feelings, after all.
[KP: 2/3] Used [N1] Rage Explosion (flavored as just a normal explosive wave) to counter incoming attacks! 33% Charged with a damage potential of: enough Intent: deal heavy damage to Collan, Chai, Egg, and Guardia
(I think it'd be for the best if we perhaps just faded to black in your guys' next posts, and assume that Bing approves y'all for training. I don't wanna keep this going any longer tbh, and would prefer to just train all of you who still hold interest)
Barreling towards Bing like a pinball outta nowhere, he felt an odd surge in his own strength as he felt a sharp smacking ripple throughout his body as Guardia's little attack impacted against his body. Though nearing Bing, after feeling that his own little barrier trick worked in preventing much damage being taken from the kick, a new energy was building up to a severe degree. And in just moments EGG was blown away from the impact of Bing's counterattack, launching a good ten or so yards away from the initial area and into the forest, the little saibaman spinning off more fervently to the point where he got a little sick from the attack, crashing right into a tree as everything started fading to black with such a big impact on his head...
As Collan continued to head right for Bing, it was great to see that Egg and Chai were also finally joining in on the fight. He wasn't too excited to see their opponent throw a counter attack in the form of a dome, as is moment carried him into the attack and sent him flying. Due to attack from above, Bing's attack sent him flying back upwards. He was able to stop himself at some point, he planned to fire another Sinjin at Bing, a red energy appearing in the palm of his hand...but as quickly as it came, it vanished.
Collan mumbled to himself as he slowly fell towards the ground, laying down as his eyes shut. To be honest, there was no way for him to continue fighting after that.
Attack used: N/A
OOC: Sorry for taking so long, I ran into a...creative wall. Hence why it got to the point where I was skipped. I'll be exiting as well, taking PL.
Etoru's eyes lit up like a fire when he heard Bing announce that he and Vi-Poi might need personal training. Immediately he assumed that he was just too good for chumps like them. A cocky grin spread across his face. Closing his eyes arrogantly, he gave a one-shouldered shrug as he leaned back in his seat. "Heh, personal training eh? Guess I'm out of your league losers." Jabbing Bing's staff at the ground, he propped himself up. Stretching slightly, he turned his back from the group. "Anyways, better take my leave. Getting a little bored over here. So I'll see yous latah~" And with that, Etoru made his way back to the living quarters. ---
