In the pursuit of attacking Ethan, Codey gets tackled aggressively from the side by Tony as they both went tumbling down to the ground away from Ethan who starts heading into the HQ with Kunoichi & Chemic and looks for a computer. Tony & Codey quickly recover from the ground and stare each other down, “So you’re Lord Quinn’s lap dog, Tony right?
“Yes, but I’m not his lapdog, I’m his best friend idiot...and you’re one to talk, aren’t you one of Mavis’s governors or should I say lapdogs?”
“Heh, touché, but in the end, a dog is a man’s best friend wouldn’t you say?”
“But besides that, you’re a creation of Lord Quinn’s, I’m curious to see what you can do?” said Codey as he throws his battle axe at Tony in a manner that causes the axe to spin.
The battle axe spins passed Tony as he barely dodges it but Codey used the axe attack as a distraction, as he quickly closes the gap between them and attacks Tony with a right hook punch to his face. Tony tumbles back a few metres but shrugs off the attack even though Codey gave almost no time to do so as he continued to attack, Tony dodges the next attack as Codey’s right hook punch just grazes Tony’s face and smashes the ground, Tony counters the attack by punching Codey on the temple which sent him plunging through the dirt away from Tony.
Codey recovers from the attack and stands up, “Heh, he packs more of a punch than I do right now, buts that’s because I haven’t converged yet. (Scans Tony) He’s using a maroon energy that I’ve never seen before… that’s problematic for me. Hmmm…let’s converge to 30% and see how that goes.”
Codey had turned on his convergence mode which caused him to somewhat transform, his skin glowed with blue circuit patterns that emitted smalls zaps of electricity. “Impressive, I didn’t expect Mavis to have created something other than trash… I’m starting to see why Ethan wanted me not to destroy this guy, he also has convergence mode but it uses electricity instead. He’s speed & strength should be drastically increased”
“Heh, keep yapping you dog.”
Codey raises his hand and summons his battle axe with electromagnetism as he swiftly charges towards Tony and leaps up at him as he catches his inbound battle axe and slashes down at Tony, but Tony blocks the attack with his forearm, leaving only a scratch on it, he then forces Codey away but Codey keeps persisting towards Tony and attacks him with a flurry of masterful slashes. Tony could only block and divert the slashes as he gained more scratches from them but Codey countered the last block with a punch combo as he releases his battle axe, swiftly left hooks Tony on his abdomen and right uppercuts Tony on the chin which lifted him off the ground, as he was mid-air, Codey back kicks Tony in the abdomen, sending him flying away and crashing onto the ground. Codey did not let up as he chases after Tony while powering up his mini electromagnetic cannon, Codey attacks Tony while he was recovering on the ground but he manages to block the attack with an energy sword. Tony was already in convergence mode as he had increased it to 30% output, he releases a burst of energy from the sword which forces Codey away but Codey recovers mid-air and blasts an electromagnetic beam at Tony who blocks the beam and barely absorbs it with the energy sword as it became ecstatic. To Tony the sword felt like it was resisting him as he struggled controlling the ecstatic sword, with all his strength, Tony redirected the energy absorbed by sword and released its own maroon electromagnetic beam back at Codey. To Codey’s surprise, he didn’t expect his own attack to be shot back at him, but he converged to 60% output in his convergence mode and barely dodged the attack as it zoomed passed him. “Not bad for a lapdog, how did you do that?” asks Codey curiously.
“Tch, energy absorption and redistribution, the energy sword can absorb any type of energy and redistribute it back at the enemy. It has other abilities but that’s all you need to know,” explains Tony.
“Aww come on, don’t be like that.”
“You’ll likely find out later what else this sword can do, it would be idiotic of me to reveal it beforehand.”
“Heh, I guess so.”
Codey converged to 80% output, Tony was almost blinded by Codey’s transformation as he’s circuits were glowing luminously and were buzzing with electricity. His battle axe had become electro-charged as it glowed ecstatically blue on the blade.
Codey flashes to Tony and slashes him before he could even react to Codey’s speed. To Tony’s surprise, turquoise liquid sprays from his wound as Codey’s battle axe managed to cut through Tony’s violence-proof clothing and his tough skin. Codey continues to attack with a right swing of his battle axe, but Tony touches a quantum rift with his right hand and teleports away.
Tony found him quite a distance away from Codey, “That bastard actually cut through my skin. Luckily it didn’t damage any vital components, he’s pretty fast now, he must be going all out with his convergence mode. I’ll show him 50% output, that should be enough to match him. Ethan needs to hurry up otherwise I might have to destroy this guy.
Meanwhile Ethan manages to find a computer, he pulls out Frigoré, Laboratoriá & Corruptión from his pockets then puts Frigoré on a monitor and activates it while giving Laboratoriá to Kunoichi. “If anything bad happens while I’m gone, tap my body with that cube and run with it,” said Ethan as he sits down then activates Corruptión which started to spread and engulf Ethan.
“Wait what’s going on?!”
“Don’t worry, nothing bad is happening, just watch over my body while I’m gone and I’ll explain everything when I’m back.”
Ethan was completely engulfed by Corruptión and a few moments later, Corruptión separated from Ethan and went into the monitor portal that was created by Frigoré.
“That thing still creeps me out,” said Chemic.
In the Virtual Cyber Realm, Ethan gains consciousness in his Corruptión body and began stretching his body so that he could adjust to his Corruptión body. “Aahhh… right, let’s get down to business. I’ll start with the 3 Colossals, destroying the Colossals with the electromagnetic cannon would be a good, but a better idea is to preserve the physical vessel and erase the cyber vessel controlling the physical vessel so that I can control them. Having a few Colossals on our side will be beneficial to us when we go fight Mavis & her governors in their territories… but first, I have to deal with these robots’ cyber security…This should be interesting.”
Ethan was warmed up and started traversing through the Cyberscape to find the 3 Colossals cyber vessels, he comes across the battle of between Tony & Codey. “(Whistle) They’re really going at it… I better hurry up before Tony loses his patience.”
He rushes to the first colossal and touches it, Ethan was pulled into a bright light within the cyber vessel. He finds himself in a white void cyberscape then the cyberscape starts to build itself into a vast intricate maze. “A maze huh, so this is the level of their cyber security for their pawns, this should be easy.”
Back in the real world, the battle between Codey & Tony continued to rage on as sparks of lightning and bursts of maroon clashed against each other. Tony had increased his convergence mode to 70% output but his energy output was focused more on speed to try match Codey’s astounding speed at just 80% output. They attacked and countered each other as they both simultaneously did an extreme flurry of continuous attacks with their weapons cancelling each other out as sword & axe continued to clash intensely until the build-up of potential energy between the two forces erupted and repelled the two away from each other. Codey & Tony were tumbling away from each other due to the force that came from the explosion of potential energy but they recovered quickly and resisted the force of repulsion. Tony looks at his energy sword, “Just great, my sword is damaged, I might have to use my fists now.”
Codey’s convergence mode could be seen from the HQ as he had just converged to 120% output, “(Scans Codey) 120% output?!?! This does not look good,” thought Tony as he converged to 90% output. Codey & Tony were lighting it up with their convergence mode as it was a sight to behold for the androids and the humans. Codey focused a significant percentage of output into his battle axe causing it to have to rumble like a thunderstorm. In a blink of an eye, Codey had closed the gap between him & Tony and swings his battle axe at Tony’s necks. Tony tried blocking the attack with his energy sword but Codey’s ecstatic battle axe slices right through the sword and cuts Tony’s neck but Tony grabs the shaft of the battle axe and stops it’s motion. “You’re starting to piss me off lapdog,” said Tony as he converged to 100 % output and grabs Codey by the throat and chokeslams him to the ground. Codey kicks himself away from Tony on the ground, jumps back up onto his feet, summons his battle axe and downward swings the axe at Tony who rapidly touches the side of the axe’s blade and guides it to miss his shoulder as he counters by punching Codey in the face with 100% output, the punch connects and a burst of maroon sends Codey flying then plunging and embedding against the side of a plateau. Giving Codey no reprieve, Tony swiftly follows up and launches a 120% output punch at Codey.
To their surprise, Tony’s attack halted in front of Codey’s face but he still felt the aftermath of the potential energy as a gust of wind blew on his face and a burst of maroon pushed him even more against the plateau as cracks travels through it.
“What the, why can’t I move?” asks Tony.
“I don’t know, I also can’t move,” said Codey as both kept struggling to move.
“Hey, switch to your cyber bodies.”
“Huh??? Who said that?”
“Yeah it’s me, thank goodness I arrived on time, otherwise you would’ve destroyed poor Codey here.”
“Well took you long enough,” said Tony.
“I’d say I’m on time hehe…”
Codey had just realised his surroundings and witnessed the damage Ethan had done on his attack squadron as all his cargo planes & fighter jets were taken out, along with the Androids leaving only the Colossals active. “COLOSSALS!?! WHY ARENT YOU GUYS ATTACKING, GET IN THERE AND DESTROY THESE HUMANS!!!”
“They no longer your Colossals Codey, they’re mine now so stop being so loud and switch to your cyber body.”
Codey switches, “What have you done?!”
“I have simply shifted the battle in our favour, the only enemy left is you Codey.”
“Why can’t we move though?” asked Tony.
“Well that’s because I’ve activated Frigoré, if you remember Tony, you’ve already experienced Frigoré.”
“…..Oh yeah, I did… but then why aren’t you affected since you’re in a cyber body?”
“Because Corruptión is unaffected by any cyber abilities, any cyber ability launched against Corruptión becomes corrupted and destabilised then cancelled out leaving Corruptión unaffected.”
“The heck, how do even create or beat such a thing?” asks Codey.
“Hehe, well that’s my little secret. Anyways, it is time to end this battle, don’t you think Tony?”
“You could’ve just left him to me you know.”
“Yeah but this is the smarter course of action for our future battles with Mavis’s army, having a Cybortron on our side will be very beneficial for us.”
“What do you mean having a Cybortron on your side? I will never switch to your side, I will never betray Lord Mavis even for you Lord Quinn.”
“You misunderstand me Codey, I don’t need you, I just need your physical body, so I’ll be disposing your cyber body,” said Ethan as he touched Codey’s cyber vessel and was pulled into the cyber vessel.
