“Yeah! And like I’m-a said, you’re not-a going-Eh?” Luigi was interrupted by the sucking power of his Poltergust G-00 disappearing. A monitor was clogging up the intact. “Oh.” He rolled his eyes and shut it off, allowing the monitor to land flat on the ground... but instead of the metalic clank he was expecting, it was more of a sickly splash. “What thee-?” He looked down at his feet and saw his shoes were purple…so were his legs…and they smelled…Wait this was another one of those sludge monsters come back for him! “Gah! Help!” Luigi squealed before activating the Burst function on his Poltergust-G00 to blast himself out of the Muk’s grip. “Woa-Ho!”
(oG5lJGZBp_1d20+5 Luigi's activates Burst, granting +2 to grapple escapes. Success!)
Despite being freed, Luigi's problems weren't over as this Muk, already proven quite tenacious was stubborn as well. It chased Luigi around the room while Nobody and Chell fought. He didn't even get to comment on his gaudy pink armor.
But as stubborn as the Muk was to not let Luigi go, so was Luigi at not letting Nobody go. Facing his fears, Luigi challenged the Muk with his Poltergust G-00, sucking at it as if it were a ghost. (p_1d20+2 Luigi’s suction grapple @ Muk.)
Then also like it was a ghost, Luigi lifted the thick sludge over his head and slammed it down against the floor like the big purple booger it was. Aiming at Nobody, he sucked and swung the Muk at him, hoping to splatter and disorient, and possibly stick Nobody long enough for Chell to pin him down and take him out.

Nobody's helmet hid his face from any possible visibility, preventing pretty much everyone from seeing his expressions... but the sharp tilt of his head to the side after Chell's little speech certainly gave a clear indication of his response. "Eh?" He remarked. "That's what you're acting suicidal over? A car?!" Nobody parroted more in disbelief than out of anger. The Rider let out an exasperated sigh, briefly standing up straight and scratching the back of his helmet with laxed posture. "Look lady, I just found that junker abandoned off in the wastes."
He raised his gloves in mock surrender, but couldn't help throwing an incredulous chuckle Chell's way. "Besides, the previous owner clearly didn't give a shit about the thing. It was just rusting away in the middle of nowhere. It was a victimless crime!" He nodded, smiling underneath that helmet like his callous words would finally provide peaceful results. "Now why don't you just put down the disc-sword, and we can all walk away before any guards sh-"
Before his eyes could even see where the enhanced keyblade wielder had disappeared to with her incredible speed, Nobody felt a sharp wrenching sensation in his gut. Hearing the clatter of her boots against the metal floor, the Rider turned around to glance behind himself to his attacker... only for his entire body to be jolted seemingly hundreds of times in different directions on the spot as the slashes from Chell's critical Zantetsuken made their mark.
p_1d20+5 (Nobody's Zantetsuken Dodge - Failure)
Cracks began to show in his armor... literally. In a beautiful blossom of sparks marking the path of each instantaneous cut across his form, Mugen Rider Culturgen's body seemed to hum with overloading energy, steadily ramping in the face of such an intense series of blows. The damage seemed unrecoverable, amplified even further by the dangerous and experimental nature of the form. As one lens on his helmet shattered to reveal a singular eye below, wide with momentary panic, one word escaped Nobody's lips: "Oh."
And then, the unstable sparks reached a head.
Space seemed to collapse in on itself as Nobody's entire body imploded... before in an equally strange show of spatial warping, it returned to normal. In fact, before their eyes, the cracks and marks of damage in his armor repaired and reversed. And then, before their eyes, a shape that would be very familiar to Luigi would emerge from the light before lifelessly clattering to the ground:
A bronze-colored, circular badge bearing the facial resemblance of King Dedede.
(Special Item Activation: Dedede Broach x1)
Seemingly out of nowhere, Nobody had returned from the brink of certain death. And despite the fact that many of his injuries had mended themselves spontaneously, the pulsing red aura bleeding off of his armor in plumes suggested the exact opposite. All that kinetic energy from the merciless onslaught Chell had subjected him to seconds prior had been condensed and converted into potential energy within his suit... And even as the newly inspired plumber attempted to pitch in and assist his ally, he'd find it a bit too late.
With renewed fervor, the reinvigorated mercenary maneuvered with intensified power away from Luigi's gooey slams; as if possessed by an untouchable ghost. He would deal with the green guy soon... but first, one threat in particular was had made his kill list.
"Oh... I see now. You're just crazy, aren't you." Nobody uttered calmly, his voice quivering with restrained malice as his murderous intent literally manifested as a visible scarlet aura pouring off of him. "Well if it's a death wish, who am I to crush your dreams. Don't worry." Without further warning, the Rider abruptly lurched forward, closing the distance between Chell and him before the aggro'd foe launched a powerful punch aimed to knock her even further back down the hall. But they weren't done yet.
p_1d20+5 (Rider Punch@Chell: Heavy DEX Attack; DMG 30%, -2 to 1 dodge roll next turn)
"Not even Nobody--"
The sound of an engine revving filled the hall as Nobody entered a crouching position, training the bug-like gaze of his helmet directly on the keyblader before him. Taking a running start, Nobody leaped into the air as the collected energy abruptly discharged through the joints of his suit. Light beams of red condensed and spiraled around his form, the intense dispel of power causing his entire body to begin violently spinning until it resembled a shining red drill blasting straight towards Chell's torso in an explosively violent kick to her core.
After seemingly turning into pure energy that passed straight through Chell, a few moments of clarity mimicking that of her earlier technique would follow before a brilliant and violent explosion would issue from the point of impact. Crouched against the ground and illuminated by the fiery eruption behind him, the mercenary would slowly rise back up to his feet before now directing the soul-piercing gaze of his helmet at Luigi now. Reaching down into a compartment at his legs, the Rider would withdraw another shape unfortunately familiar to Luigi: A friendly looking, shiny star that immediately shattered in his enemy's closed grasp before a dazzling aura of energetic sparkles encompassed his form.
(Nobody used: x1 Starman item)
"'Miss?' No need to worry! You're just in time."
Unbeknownst to Nobody, in the ensuing chaos of the murderous exchange of blows between him and Chell, the flashdrive containing the data from Samus' lab terminal had been blown out of the Rider's grip and now lay on the floor of the hall a few meters to the side. In fact, if Luigi tried he might be able to make a mad dash for it and snag the device before his enemy noticed... But doing so could also potentially leave him open for another powerful assault from his currently invincible enemy. Not to mention: who knows how long him or Chell (if she's still standing) have before the security personnel of dastardly drones and droids arrived. Forget the cameras turning on in a few minutes, there was an explosion for pete's sake!
EVERYONE! If you'd like, you can make an 18+ DEX roll to grab the discarded drive using whatever means you have available. Failure will result in a -5 to your next dodge roll, so be careful!))

Chell got hit by the kick, sending her back from the explosion, wincing in pain. "You're wrong. He cared about that car more than anything. He'd never leave it like that by choice! You have no right to drive it!" She declared as the Nobody rose back up. Dang, he had some equipment on him as well. That made this a bit more complicated. Then she got hit full force by her own force, the attack sending waves through her body as she screamed before falling down. It looked like... she lost.... And might die... Wait, why is there red stuff being pumped into her right now?
p_1d20+3(Red Hot Shot activated. Chell is switching back to Portal form.)
The girl stood up to her feet after the impact and stared down Nobody. "Many times people have tried to kill me. It's harder than you think," Chell remarks her cockroach like tenacity. She was breathing a bit heavy but a lot of adrenaline was pumping through her veins now, making her even stronger and deadlier. The issue was Nobody was currently invincible... Huh. She read reports of that aura and item. First time seeing them... Just had to go and stall the fight. Chell noticed the flashdrive on the floor however and quickly made to pick it up.
p_1d20+5(Grabbing the Drive)
And Chell managed to whip the Flashdrive into her hands. She'd like to stay around and settle this personally but she wasted enough time as is and him being invincible did not help. She gave one last angry glance before she summoned a Keyhole Portal behind her to the surface and attempted to backflip through and close it before the others could reach her. Nothing personal, Luigi but she knew her current chance at revenge has been foiled and she's not letting Nobody have a chance at coming through as well. p_1d20+5Chell's Attempted Disappearing Act)

“No good...” Well, what did Luigi think was going to happen trying to Spectral Slam a Muk? The Poltergust could barely hold onto the dripping ooze let alone pull it along like a projectile. It wasn’t until he had tried thrice, did he realize it was reduced to sloppy sludge. “Ew.” But in that sitting in that sloppy sludge, Luigi noticed something familiar…A coin? A Star Medal? A Trophy Stand? No… it was… King Dedede’s Broach!? How did He get his hands on this? Did he steal from King Dedede too?
Remembering how it works, Luigi made a point to discreetly pocket it for later. For now, Chell needed his help… Oof. Really needed his help! With the same Eagle eye that noticed King Dedede’s Broach, Luigi noticed Nobody had dropped the flash drive he came all this way and put them through all of this to collect!
“I’m-a remember her!” Luigi retorted in defiance of Nobody, rushing in to help his buddy… Only to completely lose his nerve and skid to a frozen stop at the Rider’s soul-piecing gaze.
The distraction worked long enough for Chell to take the drive and run. Super! Now all he had to do was…Wait--What was that in his hand…OH NO! A Starman! What was Luigi going to do now? Run away? Where would he go? Chell’s the one who had the Portal Gun! Stand and fight like Mario? He’s Invincibible!... Or Is he? What’s the number one rule about the Starman? The invincibility is Temporary! If he could just distract him long enough… Besides, he and Mario have fought their fair share of invincible enemies before! If they couldn’t hit him with their bare hands… They’d hit him with the arena! That’s It!
“And I’m-a make sure you remember-a me!” Luigi plucked back up threatened, putting up his dukes as if about to enter a boxing match. “The one and only, Luigi!”
Right at that moment, a piece of wall debris harmlessly hit Nobody on the back of the head. Harmlessly since he was, y’know, invincible.
“Over here!” Standing from where that came from was… Luigi? What the-? Why was he all green and translucent? Was that still the shape of an L on his forehead or was it a G? “Lookie!” Gooigi raised his translucent hand, to reveal, floating inside it… A Flash Drive!?! How did he get that? “Come and geddit!” He taunted as he began to run away in a shimmy floppy fashion toward an air vent on the fair side of the room, nearer to the entrance than the hole in the wall they broke.

Maybe Luigi might've succeeded in his plan had his gooey clone appeared with the drive just a bit earlier. Unfortunate for him though, the somehow still alive Chell had seemingly resurrected herself just to spite their foe and snatch up the flash drive before attempting a quick escape, abandoning her own ally! Don't let the cheery and uplifting music of the Starman fool you, though. Beyond those dazzling sparkles, Nobody was absolutely seething with rage; and seeing the woman he'd just sentenced to death getting back up was the slap in the face that sealed the deal.
As someone whose powers literally involved distorting and tearing dimensions to operate, Nobody recognized an escape portal when he saw one. Rather than immediately give chase however, the Rider calmly turned his full attention to Chell. "Mugen Finale." He uttered with a growl. The merc's gauntlet-covered fingers danced across the screen of his Dimension Driver, his finger trailing on and over each ability icon in an uninterrupted stroke. As his fingertip released from the final sigil, all of them simultaneously lit up while the driver beeped in confirmation.
Chell was so close. Literally centimeters away from her portal, her ticket out of here. But just as her weight shifted to pass over the portal's threshold... she'd find herself completely frozen in place. All at once, dimensional energy began to seep out and around not only Mugen Rider Culturgen's armor, but Chell and entire segments of the hall itself. With a single explosive kick off of the ground, Nobody leapt high into the air before the world around them distorted and flickered. Like the snapshot of the camera, Luigi would be privy to 4 different sights as reality seemed to stutter from one to the next:
White spectral lines formed a sagittal box for meters around Nobody, almost like the borders of a polaroid frame. A burst of bright white light blinded the scene before fading to reveal that he had disappeared mid-air and reappeared directly above the keyblade wielder, now also contained within the white boxed-in area. A second flash: Now the still airborne Rider was suddenly parallel to Chell, staring her dead in the eyes before the final flash ensued and revealed the image of the armored pink and silver Rider barreling into the portal-producer with an explosive, flying side kick! "SEIYAAAAAAAAAAA!"
"LOSS IMPACT!" (Final Smash - Loss Impact: 60% DMG)
His driver announced the finishing move's name with even fiercer intensity just as the rampant dimensional energy crescendoed within Chell's form, detonating on her person in a brilliant explosion as Nobody slid to the ground. From the ramping sound of feet shuffling and alarms blaring, it was painfully clear that all semblances of escaping through the facility with any stealth were out the window for either party... or were they?
Turning back around, Nobody knelt down to pick up the flash drive previously possessed by Chell. "And stay dead this time." He advised, turning now to Luigi and holding up the data drive in his hand. "You better hope this is real, or I'm coming for you next, mustachio." There was no lightheartedness in his voice with that threat though. Some people really knew how to take the fun out of illegal activities, huh?
With that hopefully poignant warning aside, the Mugen Rider shot Luigi a two-fingered salute before falling backwards through Chell's possibly falling keyblade portal; disappearing through it completely.
"<FREEZE>" As if on ill timed cue, the hall would almost immediately after begin to swarm as security android after security androids filed in on Chell and Luigi (although the plumber's gooey doppelganger seemed to have evaded detection by gunning for the air vent for now. Lights in the hall flickered on to fully illuminate the battle scarred area, the camera implements lining the ceiling and corners whirring to life again with the rhythmic beeps of the small red bulbs at their sides. Seems the power had finally been restored... right on time. "<YOU_ARE_TRESPASSING_WITHIN_A_RESTRICTED_AREA__SURRENDER ALL WEAPONS__FAILURE_TO_COMPLY_WILL_BE_MET_WITH_EXTREME_FORCE>" Almost immediately several drones moved in, their metallic limbs aiming to forcefully and somewhat painfully pin down the two trespassers.
Luigi and Chell! You are being apprehended by the security personnel of Samus' Research Laboratory. Failure to roll a 16+DEX will result in 10% DMG, on top of being grappled and inflicted with paralysis! …But is resisting really the best course of action?
Chell's plan to escape was flawless. There was absolutely no way he could stop her from jumping into a portal directly behind her. That is except for one miscalculation on her part. She did not expect Nobody to be able to bend reality to freeze her in place. Chell helplessly watched. The sidekick impacted her with a devestating crack in her rib that sent her flying into the wall, her grip being lost on the impact as she slid down the wall. Her keyblade hit the ground and disappeared in a burst of light. She laid there for a few moments, shuttering as she was unable to move properly from all the pain and bruises. She might have a few bad bones now too. One might think she was out of commission completely.
... And they'd be half-right. Through ungodly amount of adrenaline coursing through her body to keep her moving for one last defiant glare before looking at the ground.... Great, it just had to be robots law enforcers. Chell tried to push herself off the ground but even with all her willpower, determination and stubborness, the human body can only endure so much pain so she ended up just hitting the ground and passing out as the last of her energy went out. She might be out for a few hours if not more. She's also probably going to be incredibly moody after this. Not like she has a choice.

What? The? + Clock? Just? Happened?
One second Gooigi was luring Nobody into a keep-away chase to stall him as Chell got away in the portal and security drew near, the very next second, a bright light and sagittal boxes later, it’s a second ago!? Chell’s back here, Nobody’s blowing her up and He’s going through the portal in her place?!
What would Luigi do? What could Luigi do? Whatever he’d do this was happening before he could do it! And before that, all he could do was stand there frozen, screaming so high and silently only Poochy could hear him. He couldn’t move. He couldn’t even feel Gooigi moving. The only motion on his person was tears streaming freely down his face. Barley clearing his moustache, it was all happening so fast! Nobody was getting away and Chell…Chell! Luigi couldn’t even shout his buddy’s name before her body flopped onto the ground. He might as well have been a trophified, considering he couldn’t even move his legs to run to her side and catch her before the security team finally arrived. Go figured, if Nobody didn’t just use The World, Luigi’s improvisational plan might’ve panned out. Maybe, if he had even thought of it yet.
When Luigi’s body finally broke free and allowed itself to move, it was only to raise his hands in the air and open his hands in surrender. There was no warp pipe he could jump into that they wouldn’t follow. And why should he run? This was Samus’ lab wasn’t it? And as much as he wasn’t allowed to be there, these robots still answer to Samus, don’t they? And she answers to Mario.
…Or she asks Mario and he answers? Whatever as long as Luigi can get a hold of Mario, he had a hold of someone he could trust and more importantly… Someone who would trust him.
