Doomsday Rider: Part Four
Previously, our hero found out about the End Game, a tournament launched
by Armos and Scorpio to help destroy Neopia's best fighters. One of these fighters
was Anubis III, the greatest shape-shifter in Neopia, and when he went up against
Orbiknaught, he was completely outclassed. And as Chao, Evanda, Boomdogg, Anubis,
and Chaos watch Doomsday_Rider battle Armos, they are getting anxious to find
out who wins, Rider, we're counting on you!
I began charging at Armos as fast as I could, and slammed the Million Degree
Sword right through his chest. I looked up at his head, sparks were shooting
out everywhere. I ripped the sword out of Armos' chest, and slashed through
his waist. He broke in half like a cracked eggshell, and his torso hit the ground
with a loud clank. I sheathed my sword, and the spectators started cheering.
"I did it," I said to myself. "I beat Armos." I looked over to Scorpio, who
was completely surprised that Armos was defeated once and for all.
"All right, Shoyru, I don't know how you beat Armos, but you won't be able
to defeat me," Scorpio said. Immediately I saw the steel he wore begin
to crack, and shatter. Eventually, it all just flew off, and Scorpio's stats
shot through the roof. "Heh heh."
"I'm in trouble," I said, and began slashing at Scorpio with the Million
Degree Sword. He took a shot at me with his scorpion-tail, I tried to dodge
it, but he managed to slice into my shoulder. Next, he hit my sword with his
tail, and it flew to the borderline of the ring. He grabbed my head, picked
me up, and threw me out of the ring. When I landed, I landed right next to Boomdogg,
who had won the first Bloodsport tournament.
"Well Rider, I guess you're not so good in fighting tournaments, are you?"
"Oh, put a Negg in it," I said, getting off my head and sitting on the ground
to try and gather my bearings.
"You just can't handle the fact that you can't beat Scorpio," he said, standing
up and jumping into the ring and stretching. He did know how to use the tournament
ring to his advantage, but I don't think he knew what he was getting himself
into. He motioned to the crowd, and the End Game had drawn a pretty big crowd.
"Bring it on, Scorpio." Immediately, Scorpio struck at Boomdogg, but Boomdogg
was across the ring before Scorpio's tail hit the ground.
"You little punk. Heh heh. I haven't had to use my full speed for years," Scorpio
said. Immediately, Scorpio disappeared, showed up behind Boomdogg, and punched
him to the other side of the ring.
"He'll be feeling that in the morning," Chao said.
Boomdogg was struggling to get up, he already had a gash over his eye. Things
weren't looking good for him, let's say that. But lo and behold, Boomdogg jumped
up and used his Heal ability. However, Heal abilities won't heal something like
a cut. "Scorpio, you can't defeat me," Boomdogg said.
"Oh no?" Scorpio said, then began to glow and transform into something I never
thought I'd see. Scorpio had shape-shifted into the Phoenix, the symbol of Phoenicia.
It looked like Boomdogg couldn't win now. Scorpio flew up and threw a fireball
at Boomdogg, it barely missed, but sent him flying over to where I was.
"What's your strategy now, Boom?" I asked him.
"I'm going to lead him around for a while, and when his powers run out, he'll
come crashing to the ground, and it'll be a knockout," Boomdogg replied.
Scorpio flew at Boomdogg, and he ran all over the ring. Eventually, like he
planned, Scorpio's energy ran out, and he crashed to the ground, but he landed
on his feet. Scorpio began chasing Boomdogg, and Boomdogg made a sharp turn
at the edge of the ring, and Scorpio slipped right out. The End Game was over.
Boomdogg had defeated Scorpio like I couldn't. It was a total upset.
We were watching yugo149 at a comedy show. He was doing great. Everybody was
"You don't drink? Why? It never happens with anything else does it? You don't
use mayonnaise? Why? Are you addicted to mayonnaise? Is it okay if I use mayonnaise?
I can go outside," he said, and the audience was laughing really hard. As yugo149
was finishing a joke, the back wall exploded, and none other than Scorpio emerged
from the collapsing rubble.
"You fools may have defeated me before, but you'll never defeat the warrior
coming to take my place!" Scorpio shouted. Boomdogg had done some training after
the End Game, and had learned two new abilities, Bless, and Flash. Boomdogg
unleashed his hidden strength, and unleashed a few of his abilities as well.
The color was draining from his eyes as his strength began to rise far past
"Scorpio, bring it on you Phoenician freak!" Boomdogg shouted. "Flash! Spark!
Smokescreen! Magic Pebbles!" Boomdogg unleashed the abilities in that order,
first blinding Scorpio with the flash, stunning him with the Spark, making himself
invisible with the Smokescreen, and k.o.'d Scorpio with the Magic Pebbles. And
then, out of nowhere, Scorpio exploded, leaving everybody staring at the wall
in disbelief, and slowly, Boomdogg charged his hidden strength.
"It's finally over," he said, looking at me, Chao, Evanda, and Beast IV, things
were peaceful again.
I was still wondering how Boomdogg had pulled that sudden burst of strength
out of the blue like that, when, he came over to tell me he had been training
since long before the tournament.
"You see, Rider, psychodogg had somehow known about this before it happened,
so he told me to start training intensively," Boomdogg said.
"Oh," I simply replied, things were back to normal, and, we didn't have to
worry about any other threats to Neopia.
