|Sparring with a Super Hero!| (Open Thread) Blokus' PL = 2,500
Maybe it wasn't the best idea to put "Earth's Mightiest Hero!" on the ads he put out. It wasn't even true, and anybody who would've shown up to take up the offer would've known it.
"I should probably pack it up soon." Blokus thought to himself. It was a terrible idea in the first place. Let any random person spar with him. Sure, it would've made him more well know, and if he beat the challenger in a fight, that person knew he was a strong hero! But nobody showed up.
Even if they did, there wasn't a guarantee that Blokus could've beaten them. Hell, a villain looking to make one less hero in the world could've shown up and blown him to pieces. But hey it was a risk he was willing to take. Or, it was a risk Blazing Broccoli was willing to take.
Maybe it was the idea of a vegetable based superhero away from showing up... Well whatever it was, he wish he knew what it was, because sitting in an empty field by yourself is booooring!
Just one challenger, that's all he wanted, he'd even fight somebody stronger than him, if anybody showed up!
"I knew I should've gone online to find a sparring partner." Blokus grumbled to himself as he surveyed the skies, watching for anybody that took up the challenge of fighting a superhero.
OOC Notes: Welp, this might be suicide. There's a lot of strong fighters out there. Also how long are thread starters normally? I dunno.
|Sparring with a Super Hero!| (Open Thread) Om's Thread PL = 2,000
Om was walking down one of the crowded streets of the west capitol, trying to blend in with the rest of the civilians rather poorly. He had been spending the past few days stopping small crimes and barely getting rest. He was tired, bored, and looking to fight someone that actually was a challenge. That’s when a flier flew right into his face. He removed it and looked at the flier. The flier pretty much said that the “Earth’s Mightiest Hero!” Was looking for someone to spar with.
“The Earth’s Mightiest Hero?! This could finally be my chance! Maybe he can train me and make me his sidekick! This could be the true start of my hero career!” That’s when Om realized that he was standing in the middle of the city and he said all that aloud. Embarrassed, Om quickly ran into the nearest alleyway and flew off towards the location that was on the flier. After getting close to the field Om landed and started walking. He finally arrived at the location. “Hello?” Om called out. “Is the Earth’s Mightiest Hero here?” Om was starting to get excited, this would be his first real fight in awhile!
OOC Notes: Sorry this is kind of short, I'm tired but I wanted to write this really quickly before I head to bed.

Blokus grinned. Finally! Somebody had shown up! "SO! YOU FINALLY DECIDED TO SHOW!" Blokus' voice erupted deep from within his chest. He was actually pretty excited. Blokus fixed his mask before turning to face his challenger.
"SO!YOU'VE COME TO CHALLENGE EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HERO, BLAZING BROCCOLI!" Maybe 'vegetables' is a lame theme for a superhero, but hey! It's one that worked. Obviously somebody thought it sounded like the name of a great hero.
Blokus folded his arms and grinned, looking at his opponent. Blokus could sense he was definitely stronger than any thug he had faced before... but the challenger's power wasn't as high as his own. It'd be more challenging than anything he'd faced before, but it wouldn't be too much for him to handle, and that's exactly what he was looking for.
"Don't get too cocky, keep up the act, but don't let your guard down. Doing that could get you killed." Blokus thought to himself still beaming.
His grin grew wider, stretching from ear to ear.
Grinning at his opponent, Blokus placed one foot behind the other, and raised his fists. "WELL THEN! IF YOU THINK YOU'RE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE ME ON... LET'S SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO!"
Om looked around for a second, maybe he was too late for the sparring match? That’s when the masked man had shouted to him. Om was taken aback by the shout, but then he pulled himself together and spoke with as much confidence as possible. “Yes I have!” After he said that, he got in a fighting stance and looked at the man. He was clearly strong, much stronger than Om. But that didn’t stop him from wanting to take him on. This was the most excitement he’d had since he arrived on Earth!
After the man had said his Superhero name, Om said “Hmm.. Maybe you should work on the name? But anyways, yes that is what I’m here for!” As Om got more and more excited for the fight he began to think of strategy. He knew that he probably wouldn’t win the fight. “If I can’t win, than why not just use all my power and have some fun?” Om thought to himself. The Konatsian was putting on a stoic face for show, but deep down he was the most excited he had been in months!
After “Blazing Broccoli” said to show him what he could do, Om immediately dropped the whole stoic face and smiled. Then he became engulfed in a dark blue aura. He yelled, and began charging up the technique that his father had taught him all those years ago. As the aura grew bigger and bigger, Om yelled louder and louder. “This is it! The fight I’ve been waiting for finally begins!”
Blokus' PL = 2,500 "Woah, he's taking this a lot more seriously than I am..." Blokus thought to himself, taken aback by the sudden burst of dark blue ki surrounding his foe. "Quickly, make him tap out before this gets too bad..." He thought, grinning wider and making sure his worry didn't leak into his expressions.
Blokus rushed forward, clenching his fist. "YOU'RE EXCITED!, AIN'T YA?!" Blokus slid to a stop in front of his opponent, cracking a smile. "BUT YOUR ENTHUSIASM ISN'T GOING TO BEAT MY FISTS!" Blokus yelled, throwing his weight into a punch in the center of the alien's chest.
The alien slid back, still standing. "I'LL ADMIT." Blokus said to his opponent. "I'M IMPRESSED! MOST PEOPLE WOULD'VE FOLDED AT THAT ATTACK." Blokus straightened his back. He stared at his opponent, he didn't retaliate by punching back. "What exactly is he charging?"
"I DON'T ASSUME YOU'D TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE CHARGING!" Blokus shouted. "WOULD YOU?" Blokus grinned, this was the most fun he'd had fighting somebody since his first match!
“Alright, if I manage to not get knocked to the ground, I should be fine! Just have to keep buying time and charging!” Om thought to himself some more. “I have to make sure I do good. If I do maybe I can become this guy's sidekick!” Om was taken surprise by the man charging forward and punching him right in the chest!
Om got scared, “Ah! Don’t lose balance! I have to keep charging this!” Om barely managed to remain standing. “That was a hard punch! Your not messing around!” Om got a little more serious after that. The superhero then complimented him about his ability to withstand the punch. That’s when Om tried to sound intimidating. Om said, “Yeah? Well I’m not like most people! I’m a Hero like you!” It was a bluff of course, Om just stopped some thugs once or twice but aside from that, he was just some alien.
Om was surprised by The man asking about Ki Overcharge. No one had really asked him before. He’d only used it once on Earth before and a handful of times on Konats. But he told the man. “Well this was a technique that my father had taught me. He called it Ki Overcharge. Aside from that, you’ll find out soon!” That’s when Om thought that he should ask this guy some questions too. “Hey, what’s your name anyways? I have a feeling your real name isn’t Blazing Broccoli?” After the Hero answered, Om launched forward and swung a punch! It was a bit of a weak start, but soon enough He’ll unleash his attack!
Ki Overcharge [N1] has continued charging! 33% > 66%
Blokus' PL = 2,500 "SORRY KID, THAT'S TOP SECRET INFORMATION!" Blokus chuckled. "YOU TELL ONE PERSON A SECRET, SOON THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!" It was a good thought process to have, at least in Blokus' mind. "The kid can take a hit, but isn't too great at keeping secrets... I mean, he told me what he was charging just because I asked him! Maybe he just isn't too bright." Blokus thought to himself.
"That 'Ki Overcharge' thing is gonna be a problem if I don't deal with it..." Blokus stared at his opponent as he charged up his attack. "As long as he's charging, his attacks won't be as strong as they could be..." Blokus thought to himself, looking at the spot on his arm where his opponent had landed a punch.
"Alright, this plan'll have to do..." Blokus thought to himself as he lurched forward, throwing a flurry of small punches at his opponent. The alien stepped back with each punch, Blokus' fists making impact up and down his torso. "PARSNIP PUNCH!" Blokus yelled before swinging his fist with all his might. It was a normal punch of course, the punch didn't have anything that made it special, but Blokus liked the idea of naming moves after vegetables. Plus, he'd noted that yelling out the name of a move makes it more effective in combat... Or, that was true against robbers and theives.
After the blow to the alien's gut, or at least where his gut would be if he were human, Blokus didn't quite understand alien biology... The alien slid back on his feet. His head was lowered, before he raised it again and grinned at Blokus. "That can't be good..." Blokus thought to himself as he readied himself for whatever his foe would throw at him.
“Well I guess that makes sense, Villains could find him a lot more easily.” Om had been using the whole conversation to buy time to charge and think of strategy. “Alright, I suppose I should just charge him and unleash the attack!” At that moment Om began to finish charging ‘Ki Overcharge’ when suddenly he was hit in the stomach! “AGH!” Om yelled out as he went flying back yet again, nearly losing the charge.
Om coughed up a little blood and gripped his stomach tightly. This guy was strong! But he knew he couldn’t drop out now! Om looked up and grinned. “Alright! It’s time to finish this!” Ever since Om was a child, he would use this technique as a sort of last resort. The reason for this is that whenever he used this attack, he would become quite fatigued, or in such intense uses such as this, pass out.
Within seconds after speaking, the aura flowing around him disappeared. “This is it! Ki Overcharge!” He charged forward, raising his right fist in the air. Suddenly, the dark blue aura enveloped his fist, to the point where it wasn’t even visible! Om was really excited now, he hadn’t used the technique in months! Om wound up his fist and slammed it into Blokus’ stomach with all his might! When the blow connected, the ki exploded out from Om’s fist! Om stepped back, breathing heavily. Then he fell to the ground, his vision growing darker and darker. As he slowly drifted into unconsciousness he said, “D-Did I win?”
OOC Notes: Up to you who the victor of this sparring match is. Blokus
Blokus stared as his foe flew backwards, before landing with a start. "Woah, for a regular punch.. it sure did cover a lot of ground..." Blokus thought to himself proudly. That pride quickly morphed into terror as the alien began to cough up blood. "Oh you've done it now... you killed him! You straight up killed a dude with a punch to the gut!" Blokus' mind raced on how he'd get out of this situation before he heard the alien yell something.
“Alright! It’s time to finish this!” The alien man shouted. Blokus cocked his head to the right.
"Oh! I guess he's finally gonna use his move!" Blokus put one foot ahead of him, getting in a stance that'd help him charge forward. He didn't have much time, as mere seconds later the aura around his opponent dissapeared. A confused expression creeped onto Blokus' face. "Huh, I could've sworn he was gonna use his special mo-"
“This is it! Ki Overcharge!” The alien cut off Blokus' thought, shouting out some words and charging forward. As he ran toward Blokus, ki enveloped his fist, making it hard for Blokus to see the fist at all. The alien had almost reached Blokus, and moved his hand into a position Blokus had seen before...
"He's gonna punch you in the gut! Move! Move!"
[Blokus used Afterimage!] [KP: 2/3]
Blokus ran. Not straight into the oncoming punch obviously, but he ran. He ran around his opponent, and stopped running when he had reached a space behind him.
Blokus shook his head. Using Afterimage made his vision blurred for a couple seconds after using it... he should probably see a doctor about that...
After his vision had returned, mostly, to normal Blokus turned to see the punch make an impact... with one of the small boulders strewn about the field. The alien stepped back, his energy clearly drained.
“D-Did I win?” He asked, in between short hard breaths. Blokus stared at the alien, his knees wobbled. The alien drifted into a state of unconsciousness and his knees gave out from under him. Blokus darted forward, barely catching him.
"Sorry kid, you didn't win this time." Blokus said, a bit of cheer in his voice. He lied the man down gently on his side, putting him into the position for shock.
Blokus was about to fly off before his curiosity go the best of him. He turned to look at the boulder his opponent had punched. The boulder looked about one touch away from shattering.
"I am... really glad I didn't get hit by that punch." Blokus chuckled to himself, before flying off, back towards the city. (EXIT THREAD)
Tags: Om OOC Notes: That was a fun thread! Let's do it again sometime! Also, I'd like PL. Equation for why Afterimage worked: Om's Thread PL = 2000, Blokus' Thread PL = 2500. Ki Overcharge charged for 3 turns at 33% per turn, and fired on the third turn. 99% of 2000 is 1980. 1980 is 79.2% of 2500, therefore Afterimage works.
Om had been knocked out in the field for about an hour when he woke up. “Huh? What happened?” Om had looked around the field, the hero wasn’t there. “Hey? Blazing Broccoli? Are you here?” No answer. “He must’ve been hit so hard he went flying-” Then he saw the cracked boulder. That hero had managed to somehow dodge the hit! “I was sure I hit that guy…” Om thought. The Konatsian sat up, he was still a little groggy but he managed to sit up. Om walked over to the messed up boulder. He could faintly hear his father’s voice, “Are you kidding me? You call that a hit boy?” Om punched the rock and it crumbled. “I guess I should’ve charged it some more.. But hey, what’s done is done.” Om just needed to be ready for a rematch. So Om began to fly off towards the best place to train, the Frozen North!
OOC Notes: I'm totally up for a rematch or some adventures with Blokus! Taking PL.
