(Outworld; Marketplace)

It was a peaceful and normal day in the world of Outworld. Or as peaceful and normal a desert city could be. Regardless, everyone seemed to be going along their usual business as always. Kotal Kahn, the current rule of Outworld seemed to be actually doing a decent job.
One of the many top enforcers of Kotal Kahn was walking around the city while scanning to make sure that he was doing alright. However, he wasn’t walking. He was floating. Even by Outworld’s standards, he looked rather strange with a black and red hooded cloak, black bandages covering part of his skin and his green eyes.
Ermac put his hands behind his back while looking around the courtyard, scanning to see if everything was under control. So far, so good. It was actually almost done with his patrol so he could go back to the palace soon

“Dang… The big guy really did a number on him, didn’t he?”
“Poor little guy…”
“Hey, I think he is coming too!”
“H-Hey, are you okay, little guy?”
“Guys, give the guy some air, you morons!”
The figure groaned as he slowly fluttered his eyes. All that he could remember that he was flying off into a large abyss as if he was a rocket. As he slowly gave consciousness, he saw that he was being surrounded by a bunch of concerned people. However, to say that they were mismatched was an understatement.
One of them was some kind of brown-furred marsupial wearing nothing, but jeans and red shoes. Another was a big brown-furred bear with yellow shorts and a blue backpack that had the head of a red-furred bird poked out of it. Another was a man clad in a black suit with sunglasses and had red hair in a style that looked like he came out of the eighties. The final one was a brunette young woman.

Creature Crossing: First Silver Hunt
Vantto hummed a jovial tune as he made his way through town. As he did so, several people stopped what they were doing to see him. Or rather what he was carrying. For once, he actually ignored the attention he was getting and continued to make his way towards his destination.
Samuel’s Shop and Sell. Vantto proudly marched in. The white-scaled black-clad dragon with the eyepatch, Samuel, stood there with his face on his hand in a bored fashion. He then looked up to see Vantto.
Carrying a lot of boxes of Love Bugs.
“Heyyyyyy, Samuel!” Vantto greeted with a big grin.
“Hey, Vantto…” The dragon muttered in his usual grumpy disposition. “I see that YOU want to exchange Love Bugs too, huh?”
“Yeppers.” Vantto nodded. “There were a bunch of them right outside of my house! Kato had shown me how to catch them without a net!”
“Ah, yes… I could see Kato doing that…” Samuel muttered. “So do you have

Vantto had continued his practicing of singing and dancing inside of his house. He had been doing so for a good while now and now he was in his own little zone. Because of this, he was almost oblivious to the world around you.
However, even he couldn’t hear the exciting giggling and noise that was going on outside of his house. Raising an eyebrow, he turned his head towards the window which was where the noise were coming from outside of his room.
Raising an eyebrow, he turned towards the window and opened it. There, he saw a small green froglet wearing nothing, but a yellow shirt, chasing around a bunch of bugs with a bug-catching net. Vantto had immediately recognized said froglet.
“Oh, hey, Kato!” Vantto grinned.
The froglet stopped what she was doing to see Vantto. “Hiii, Vantto!”
“What’s going on?” The bear questioned.
“Oh, you didn’t know? The Love Bugs are here, Mlem!” Kato beamed.
Vantto raised an eyebrow.

“Ugh, what am I doing wrong!?”
Vantto groaned in frustration after coming home to look up more about Charlotte. No such luck. The signal is not the problem. He can’t find a single thing about her.
“Is Charlotte spelt differently?” Vantto mused before looking at his phone.
He then let out a sigh before looking at the time on his phone. It was almost a specific time.
“I guess I could stop the search for a bit…” Vantto muttered.
With that, he got up and made his way over to the closet before going into it. A few minutes later, he was wearing a purple tracksuit.
“Okay! Time to boogie!” He announced.
With that, he turned on some music on his phone and readied a furbrush and started to sing into it. He then started to sing into it while dancing around. After all, Megan and Charlotte can’t be the only one practicing for a big break. So he gotta practice his singing AND his dancing.

After the “chance” meeting with Charlotte, Vantto had continued on while looking at his phone while he continued to scroll on his phone with his finger while Megan continued to look stunned.
“Come on, come on!” Vantto grumbled. “I don’t get it! I typed in everything that Charlotte woman did and I got bumpus! What’s going on?”
“Listen, Vantto about the sing-off.” Megan spoke while stepping forward.
“Oh, don’t worry. Your opening is still up!” Vantto reassured.
Megan blinked twice at this. “Wait, seriously?”
Vantto looked at Megan. “Of course! You are a good musician. I need more people for my band! I am willing to have you BOTH!”
“Really?” Megan asked.
“Yeah, it would be a honor to work in a band with Charlotte!” Vantto grinned.

Megan continued to stare at Vantto’s hand who was eagerly waiting for him to accept the handshake. Megan then took a deep breath.
“Listen, Vantto…”
“Ah ha!”
Megan and Vantto’s eyes bugged out before looking in the direction of the shout. There, they saw someone approaching them while looking crossed. She was a brown-furred mountain goat with a red shirt over a black leotard and had a black ring around her right eye.
Megan’s pupils shrank. “Oh no…”
The mountain goat then stomped over before speaking in a French accent. “I knew that I was wise to see you as my rival, but to think that you would actually that get in good with someone from the big city, kid!”
Vantto’s eyes lit up when he heard this. “Oh, you know who I am!”

There at the bulletin board, Vantto and Megan stared into each other’s eyes for a while. Vantto’s eyes were full with confidence and enthusiasm as always while Megan’s own had uncertainty and worry.
“I believe you know why I asked you to meet you here.” Vantto spoke, finally.
Megan nodded her head.
“Groovy! What are your thoughts about it?” Vantto questioned.
“Um, sorry, I literally just met you.” Megan questioned.
“I knew you would say that so I came prepared!” Vantto reassured before pulling into his jacket.
He then pulled out a poster before unfolding it in front of Megan. There, it was a picture of his father.
Megan put her hand to her beak before leaning it and examining the poster. Her eyes then widened. “Oh! I recognise that guy, cuckoo!”
Vantto’s eyes lit up at this. “Oh, really?”

One of the many residents of Lilypad had stretched their arms while letting a yawn before making their way back to their house. They had spent nearly the entire day outside and now they wanted to return to their home for some rest.
They were about to make their way into the door. However, while doing so, they absentmindedly shifted their eyes to the side. It was when they noticed something that was somewhat out-of-the blue.
The red flag of their mailbox was up, signalling that they had gotten mail. The resident raised an eyebrow, remembering that they had checked said mailbox and they haven’t gotten a single letter.
Giving a shrug, they decided to open the mailbox while putting the flag down. Inside was a single letter. Wasting no time, the resident had took out the letter out of the mailbox and took it open.
The stationary was bright and had glitter on it. It was as if some kind of invitation to a dance party. They then proceeded to read it.

After entering his house, he had started to cook dinner for himself. Being the over-achiever he was, he had actually cooked a few times to experiment. Considering that he was cooking for himself, he didn’t do anything that fancy.
When he had finished up his meal, he sat down to eat. However, while doing so, he was also writing a piece of paper.
“Okay, the first part of my plan is complete! I made a name for myself.” Vantto congratulated himself. “Not a big name yet, but enough for most of the locals to know my name. Which means I won’t be a stranger when I send out this letter!”
With that, he wrote down what he wanted to say with one hand while eating with his fork with the other hand. The reason why he was able to double-task was because he already knew what he w

After giving some more candy to Lump and some other residents, Vantto had completed his quest to introduce himself to more residents. He actually decided to take a path around the outskirts of town.
A few minutes later, he had found someone making their way on the outskirts as well. Vantto’s eyes lit up before rushing over. However, upon further inspection, the bear skidded to a halt.
The person was a brownish feline wearing a blue hoodie. However, he had two enormous fangs from the top of their mouth. Vantto recognised the feline as a Sabertooth Cat, one of his potential “rivals” for standing out.
Regardless, Vantto wanted to make a good start so he ran over to said Sabertooth Cat.
“Hey!” Vantto greeted, startling the feline and getting their attention.
“Um, hey.” The Sabertooth Cat answered back.

Now normally he himself could feel that he has enough charisma to charm over any and all people, he also knew that actions speak louder than words. So he decided to start small by going with something everyone loves.
Candy.
Before leaving from his home city, Vantto had bought a lot of his favourite bags of candy. Not just for himself, but also to share with some of the locals. After all, who could say no to candy?
“Well, who wants candy!?” Vantto shouted, cupping his free hand to his mouth.
Several passer-bys just stopped what they were doing and looked at the bear in confusion and bewilderment. Vantto looked around for potential takers.
Then, his eyes lit up when he saw a certain person. An aging pug dog wearing nothing, but pants and opaque round glasses walking with a cane.

He was still getting used to most of the residents, but so far, he had a good feel for everyone inside of the place and knew where the various facilities and hunting spots for bug-catching and fishing were.
However, so far, he still haven’t found any potential people to form a band. Not too surprising because seeing that he was still learning everyone in town, but sooner or later, he had to start working on his music career.
Despite this, he wasn’t too worried. He still needed to make a name for himself regardless of music so he was okay.
That was until he had heard something. Music.
Raising an eyebrow, Vantto turned towards the direction of the music. It was coming from a house. The music seemed to be an electric guitar song. Vantto paused before listening to the song for a bit.

EA-LEC: A Lovely End To A Ghostly Tale
It had been two months at the college where Ross and Sylvia were at. There, their bond with each other and Alma had grown stronger than ever. Soon, the end one of Ross and Sylvia’s classes had ended.
“Well, that is the end.” The teacher concluded, putting some papers together. “It is almost time to go.”
With that, all of the students had got ready to leave.
“I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day!” The teacher announced.
This resulted in a large mixed reaction from the class. If most of the students weren’t going all sparkling-eyed, they were wincing and glaring at the teacher. This accompanied by a bunch of chatter or groaning. Ross and Sylvia looked around at said large reaction.
“Tch. What a bunch of idiots…”
Ross’ eyes widened at the voice before turning his head to see Andrew getting up with his stuff and walking off. Ross just frowned before shaking his head at his former friend.

It had been about a few months since Hong Kong Phooey's destined encounter with Dan Hibiki... and, much to Dan's embarrassment, his complete showing off of his own teachings, which came at the wrong time as most of Hanna Barbera Town had feared Dan and his new ways of teaching...
Fortunately for Dan, this was all just a few months ago as since then, thanks in part to Blanka and a few mystery solving teenagers and animals solving the case and clearing up the misunderstanding (also with the matter of Hong Kong Phooey and Dan appearing at the same area once again due to Parace and the General, though both of them still believed each had real skills), but it still wasn't enough for Hong Kong Phooey.
As a matter of fact, it was in one day, about a couple months after the clear-up that the dog in the red gi and black mask was standing in one position and breaking a few plates that were being thrown around by a brown furry caveman with an orange cape. In fact, those two were being watched in

Love Bug Fever A - "This reminded me of you"
Lump has a hobby. Whether it’s a piece of taffy or a bit of string, the villagers have become accustomed to little bits of things mysteriously appearing by their elbow and they see the old dog wandering off.
The little children of the village love him for this (especially the crows and their kin), as he finds the best bits. The goodies always appear out of nowhere, with no rhyme or reason to them. The best the villagers can assume, Lump picks them up when wandering through the town on his daily travels. And if a little bauble reminds him of a certain someone, it will make its way to them.
Oftentimes, the bits will end up in the trash can, easily forgotten. But some of the villagers collect the little pieces the old pug gives them – like a little cuckoo bird named Megan. Megan always seems to get the brightest, shiniest bits that Lump can find. And every time she gets one, the little bird gives hi

“I can’t believe this happened… stupid train station lost my luggage…” The female cuckoo bird, known as Megan, started to complain as she looked out the window of her new home.  “And to think, I wanted my fresh start to go nicely…”
Megan held her head with her wing as she gave a sigh.  “I suppose it can’t be helped.”
If anybody were to ask any other villager about why they had arrived at Lilypad Town, there would be some that would say ‘to make new friends’ or ‘to enjoy new sights’ or even ‘I needed to move away from my old town’.  For Megan, the latter reason was suiting her the most as she looked at the limited items that she brought along

(Station Square)


Contrary to popular belief, while Station Square did get destroyed by Perfect Chaos, it was rebuilt. It took a lot of money and time, but thanks to everyone’s support (especially from the side of Sonic and his fans), they managed to do it. In fact, it was not only going back to normal, but having new events.

Like this strange yet addictive sport called the Lethal League, where two people hit metallic balls towards each other and literally lightning-fast speeds. The tournament went on for a bit, but it had finally finished and a winner was crowned.

Said winner proudly walked down the streets with several people stopping what they were doing to look at him. The winner was an anthro green-scaled crocodile. He wore an attire that looked futuristic and modern along with a set of headphones. His most noticeable feature was his metallic tail.

“Um, excuse me, mister?”

The crocodile raised a non-existent eyebrow before turning their heads to see a cat child walking up to him and holding up a book.

“Could you sign my autograph book, please?” The cat asked, holding up said book with a pencil.

The crocodile smirked at this. “Sure, kid.”

With that, he accepted the autograph book and started to write down his name with the cat child bouncing up and down excitedly. He then gave it back to the boy to which the latter excitedly read it.

The cat paused. “...Latch?”

The crocodile’s smirk vanished. “Um, yeah, Latch.”

“Oh, right, I forget! That is your Lethal League name!” The cat realized while scratching the back of his head. “Sorry about that.”

Latch’s eyes widened at this. “W-What, no, my name IS…”

“Well, thank you for the autograph, Mr. Vector!” The cat smiled.

With that, he happily skipped off before Latch could correct the boy. He then let out an exasperated sigh while slumping his arms before turning around and sulking off. This had been happening to him all day. People kept mistaking him for this guy called Vector and he constantly has to keep telling everyone that he wasn’t that guy. At first, it was amusing, but now it was getting annoying and ridiculous.

“Vector the Crocodile?” A voice spoke from behind him.

Latch’s eye twitched before turning around, looking annoyed. “For the last time, I am NOT…”

However, he froze who were in front of him. Four brightly-coloured anthros. The first one was a purple-scaled chameleon with a cool disposition. The second one was a flying hyperactive honey bee. The third one was a blue-furred hedgehog and unlike with the rest, Latch actually recognised him. However, it was the last and front and center one that took his attention. A green-scaled crocodile with headphone just like him. The main difference besides the lack of clothes was a gold chain necklace. He crossed his arms, NOT looking pleased.

“Um, are you Vector the Crocodile?” Latch answered, not liking where this was going.

“Darn straight!” The other crocodile confirmed before pointing a finger. “And YOU have a lot of explaining to do, you faker!”

The hedgehog blinked twice. “Woah, so this is what it is like to be a witness to a scene like this…”

Latch stepped back while holding up his hands in defense. “Now, hold on! I could explain!”

“Explain!? How do you explain taking MY identity and entering a sporting tournament to win the money in MY name!?” Vector countered. He then winced before looking to the side while clenching his fist. “With all of the bills we have to deal, this is literally the biggest slap to the face you could do to me right now!”

“Now hold on! I wasn’t trying to steal your identity!” Latch retorted.

Vector looked up and down and scoffed. “Yeah, anyone with eyes could see that.”

Latch didn’t not like the tone of that comment. “What was that?”

“You heard me! You try WAY too hard to be cool!” Vector pointed out. “You are more than a faker! You are a poser!”

“Um, EXCUSE me? What about that gold chain necklace around your neck?” Latch challenged. “What are you trying to be? Gangsta?”

“Hey, maybe I LIKE the old trends!” Vector shot back. “Unlike you trying too hard to fit in the future trends!”

“There is a reason why the old trends are just that. Old!” Latch roared. “Because they deserve to be dead and buried.”

The chameleon looked back and forth between the crocodile. “N-Now hold on. If we all take a deep breath and…”

“Quiet!” Vector and Latch roared at the chameleon at the same time.

“Oh, wow! Maybe this guy is as good as posing as Vector than we thought!” The bee smirked.

Vector and Latch growled at the bee before turning their attention towards each other.

“Okay, you know what? You want to be a hipster, fine!” Vector scoffed before cracking his knuckles. “But don’t do it OR claim money in MY name!”

“BUT I WASN’T…” Latch shouted at the top of his lungs before hanging his head. “...Why do I even bother?”

With that, he looked around for something. Then, he saw a manhole in the middle of the sidewalk. Acting quickly, he ran over to it and slammed his metallic tail on it, sending the cover flying off. With the mismatched four jumping, Latch then leapt into the manhole.

“He’s trying to escape!” Vector exclaimed before narrowing his eyes. “After him!”

“Oh, goody! A chase!” The bee cheered before flying off after Vector as the two leapt into the manhole.

“Ack! Vector! Charmy! Wait!” The chameleon called out holding out his hand.

The hedgehog shook his head. “Don’t fight it, Espio. This was inevitable!”

Espio paused before looking at said hedgehog. “Um, yes, Sonic, don’t take this the wrong way, but why are you so intent in helping Vector?”

“Well, I am not intent of helping Vector with his faker if THAT is what you are asking!” The hedgehog shot back. “No, I am more focused on the aftermath!”

With that, he ran forward towards the manhole with Espio blinking twice, wondering what was going on. The latter then shook his head before he ran towards the manhole as well.

Meanwhile, Vector stood at the bottom of the ladder leading into the sewer while angrily glaring at Latch.

“Don’t even think of trying to escape!” Vector taunted.

“Wasn’t trying to!” Latch insisted.

With that, he pulled out a metallic ball. At first, Vector was confused, but he soon recognised it as the official ball from the Lethal League matches.

“You seemed to be convinced that I don’t deserve the prize money because I am a “faker”.” Latch pointed out. “Well, let me tell you this. My SKILLS are not fake. Are you following?”

Vector sternly nodded his head.

“Let’s have a Lethal League last-man standing match. If you win, I will give you the prize money for winning the tournament.” Latch offered.

“And if you win, I will walk away as if nothing happened.” Vector added.

Meanwhile, Sonic and Espio had finally joined Vector and Charmy in the sewer.

“Vector, don’t be reckless!” Espio scolded.

“Oh, don’t worry! This is far from the first time I did a challenge like this!” The detective reassured. “Right, Sonic.”

The hedgehog nodded his head remembering that particular tennis match against Vector. With that, he, Espio and Charmy ran to find a place to hide. Vector got into a defensive stance as if he was a soccer goalie while Latch just threw the metallic ball to himself a couple of times.

WHICH ONE WILL BE SHEDDING REAL CROCODILE TEARS!?
FIGHT!

(60 Seconds)


Latch threw the metal ball by in the air before jumping up and swinging his metal tail at it, sending it flying towards Vector. The detective’s eyes widened before raising his arms to block said projectile. The guard was a success, but not only did it made Vector stagger back, but the metal ball bounced towards the nearest wall before rebounding towards Latch’s direction where he jumped up and swung his tail into it, sending a fast bullet straight into Vector’s stomach, knocking him down.

Latch smirked as he watched Vector weakly get up. “Hey, no shame in giving up.”

Vector growled while still holding his stomach with his free hand. He then threw up the ball up into the air before leaping up after it before spiking it as if it was a volleyball. However, his aim was a bit off as the ball bounced off the walls, going around erratically. But, Latch wasn’t fazed by this. Instead, he just narrowed his eyes and got into a defensive stance, waiting patiently.

When the ball finally reached him, Latch quickly spun around and managed to strike the ball. This had gone the ball ricocheting from left to right on the wall towards Vector. The detective’s eyes bugged out before throwing him to the ground while holding his head. However, Vector soon realized that the ricocheting wasn’t stopping anything soon. Looking up, he saw that the ball wasn’t stopping.

“What the…?” Vector asked in surprise.

“Holy cow, are you dense! A Lethal League ball never stops losing its speed until it hit a player!” Latch scolded. “Aren’t you supposed to be a detective? And people mistake me for YOU!?”

Vector growled before getting up to his feet and glaring at Latch. The former then ran towards the ball and punched it as hard as he could, sending it towards Latch. However, the genius just scoffed before jumping up and swinging his tail, sending the ball back at Vector. However, the detective just narrowed his eyes before leaping forward. ...And rolling into a ball, striking the metallic ball.

(50 Seconds)

This sent the ball ricocheting up and down off of the walls towards Latch. While initially surprised that Vector was able to give a quick return, the genius just scoffed before waiting patiently before hitting the ball with his tail again. However, Vector was anticipating this by spinning into a ball and constantly jumping up and down in while in said ball. This was a wise move as the metal ball ricocheted back at Vector and hit him while still in ball form.

This had actually sent the ball soaring towards Latch in a downward angle. The genius’ eyes bugged out before leaping to the side. However, while the ball had bounced off of it and struck Latch in the back, sending him forward and onto his stomach. He groaned before weakly looking up. To see Vector smugly crossing his arms while giving a “Bring It” gesture. Latch growled before turning around and grabbing the ball.

Latch then got up to his feet and threw the ball up into the air and swung it at Vector. The detective just got into a defensive stance at the ball flew straight towards him. Vector then did an uppercut, sending the ball ricocheting up and down the walls back towards Latch. The genius just waited patiently before hitting the ball back. This went on to a fast volley between the two crocodiles.

As they did this, the ball continued to go faster and faster. At one point, when Latch hit the ball back, Vector had to roll into a ball out of lack of confidence in him hitting the ball back. The tactic was a success as he managed to hit the ball which sent the ball ricocheting all of the place. Latch gave a toothy smirk before crouching down and concentrating. Meanwhile, Vector was still rolling in place to protect himself.

(40 Seconds)

...Only to not hear the ball anymore. Raising a non-existent eyebrow, he stopped spinning to look up to see Latch, but no ball. He was about to ask where it gone before Latch answered for him. By spitting out the ball, sending it flying into Vector’s stomach at a supersonic speed and sending him flying straight into the wall which he peeled off of it painfully with Espio, Charmy and Sonic wincing in pain.

“H-How…” Vector spoke, weakly.

“That is the beauty of the Lethal League!” Latch smirked while crossing his arms. “ANYTHING could be a weapon.”

Vector narrowed his eyes. “...Oh, is that so?”

Vector then slowly got up and walked forward while Latch got into a defensive stance. Vector then threw the ball into the air. However, instead of hitting towards Latch, Vector just stood understood the ball before blowing a large purple bubble of gum. Latch looked bewildered as Vector bounced the ball off of the bubble as it went faster and faster. Soon, Vector jumped back as the ball ricocheted up and down at a lightning-fast speed.

Vector then did a shoulder-charge towards the ball, sending it straight towards Latch. Acting quickly, Latch raised his tail in front of him to guard against the attack. Not only was the block was a success, but it sent the ball ricocheting all over the place. However, Vector was anticipating as he stepped back and sang a note, making a loud (and horrible) sound wave that acting as a makeshift barrier, making the ball ricocheting forward.

Latch gritted his teeth before running to the side, narrowly avoid being hit by the ball. Acting quickly, he spun around and swung his tail downwards onto the ball, sending it bouncing up and down. Latch then opened his jaws went before swallowing the ball. Vector’s eyes widened in horror before looking around. It was then he saw that there were a bunch of pipes on top of the ceiling.

(30 Seconds)

Just as Latch spat the ball forward, Vector thought quickly jumping towards the wall before leaping off of it before climbing onto the pipes and hiding onto them, managing for them to act as a cover as the ricocheting ball went all over. Latch growled as he watched Vector bide his time carefully, trying to look for some kind of rhythm. Due to his enthusiasm with music, he saw one.

Leaping off of the pipes, he put his fists over him and fell down in a double-handed axe chop, managing to strike the ball dead-on. However, the moment he did so, it resulted in a large boom with the entire sewer turning inverted as time stopped for a moment. Before it continued before the ball continued to ricochet around the walls. Latch growled before rushing forward. Only to be struck in the side, causing him to be skidding to the side.

Vector blinked twice. “...Um, why did you just to run straight in?”

“A necessary sacrifice.” Latch groaned while getting up, holding his side and making his way towards the ball. “I had to make sure you don’t just hide away next time.”

Vector’s eyes widened before Latch picked up the ball before throwing it up into the air before swinging it with his tail. Vector just scoffed as it bounced off of the wall and towards him. The crocodile then punched it back at the wall. The two crocodiles then took turns hitting the ball as it got faster. However, when it was approaching absurd speeds, Vector punched the ball before trying to wall jump back onto the pipes.

However, Latch saw this coming and jumped up, managing to not only hit the ball, but also send it into Vector’s back and sent him sliding onto his back. Vector groaned before propping himself on his hands and knees. He then growled before glaring at Latch who just smirked. He then got up and picked up the ball before throwing a few times to himself.

(20 Seconds)

However, instead of hitting the ball, Vector started to sing. Badly… Latch winced in pain before holding his non-existent ears. Vector then threw the ball into the air before hitting it towards the wall. Latch just scoffed before leaping up and hitting with his tail. However, the ball had bounced off of the wall and bounced back at Vector who just easily punched it back.

At first, Latch looked confused, but just hit the ball in a different direction. However, after hitting the wall, the ball just bounced off of it and straight towards Vector who just punched it in time. Latch’s jaw dropped, but didn’t had time to think before hitting the ball back. For the third time, the ball bounced off the wall and back towards Vector. Because of the high speed, Latch was unable to notice a pink aura around the ball.

Instead of hitting the ball back, Vector had managed to catch the ball in his JAWS as well. Latch’s eyes widened at this and his pupils shrank as Vector ran towards him. The former then turned tail and ran off, but Vector was hot on his heels and despite having a metallic ball in his jaws, he was still able to be faster. Vector then managed to grab Latch by the metallic tail and threw him into the air before spitting the ball at him.

However, Latch had recovered in time before spinning in midair before striking the ball. This had sent the ball ricocheting all over the place as normal. Vector’s eyes bugged out before quickly blowing a bubble, managing for it to strike the side before it sent flying to the side and ricocheting around. Latch then crouched down and leapt up before catching the ball in his jaws.

(10 Seconds)

Latch then gracefully landed on the ground before turning to Vector to get ready to aim it at him. Vector stepped back a few feet before narrowing his eyes before getting ready.

(5 Seconds)

Latch then spat the ball forward.

(4 Seconds)

However, Vector spun around while breathing out fire, much to Latch’s horror.

(3 Seconds)

The flames had touched the ball which sent it ricocheting all over the place while engulfed in flames.

(2 Seconds)

Latch got into a crouching, defensive position, getting ready to counter.

(1 Second)

However, the ball had struck him in the stomach, sending him flying back until he had crashed backfirst against the wall where he slid off and laid unmoving.

KO!

Vector panted heavily. Then, he proudly flexed his arm in triumph. “What do I tell you? Fakers never win!”

“Technically, he DID win the Lethal League tournament fair and square.”

Vector growled before turning to see Espio, Charmy and Sonic make their way towards him.

“Oi! It was all fine until he started to use MY identity!” Vector roared.

“But I am pretty sure…” Espio started, but Sonic cut him off.

“Don’t even bother.” The hedgehog muttered. He then brightened up. “S-So, now what are you going to do now?”

“That’s easy!” Vector reassured before crouching down and searching through Latch’s body. “Get the money won in MY name!”

“He may had won in “your” name, but it was won with HIS skills!” Espio retorted.

Vector glared at Espio. “Get off my back, Espio! He said that he was willingly going to give me the money if I beat him in a Lethal League match and I just did that, didn’t I!?”

The ninja rolled his eyes before Vector had finally found his money. He then smirked before pocketing it (somehow).

“The sad thing is it is still the biggest payday we ever had.” Charmy spoke with a smirk.

“Never have an off button, do you. Well, come on! Let’s get this guy and get out of this place!” Vector grinned.

“Hold it right there!”

The four jumped before looking in the direction of the voice to see a couple of police officers.

“Hoo boy…” Sonic started.

“Which one of you is Vector the Crocodile?” The first police officer asked.

“Um, I am.” The detective frowned before stepping forward.

“Good, that is all I need.” The  first police officer reassured.

With that, he walked over to Vector before making his way around him… And handcuffing his hands together.

“You are under arrest for identity theft!” He announced.

Vector, Espio and Charmy’s pupils shrank.

“Ehh???” Vector asked.

Sonic just breathed out in exasperation.

“You heard him!” The second police officer piped up. “You entered the Lethal League tournament underneath a false name and won money illegally!”

“But… But… I AM Vector the Crocodile!” Vector insisted.

“Yeah, sure, bud, remain defiant to the end!” The first police officer scoffed.

“Officer, please, that IS the real Vector!” Espio insisted, holding out his hand.

“Yeah! We even have the… imposter right…” Charmy started.

“Quiet or we will have to arrest you three for associating with a criminal!” The second police officer snapped, pointing a finger out.

Espio and Charmy jumped at this. Sonic just rolled his eyes.

“B-But officer…” Espio insisted.

Suddenly, Sonic ran in his path. “Come on, guys! If that is what the law wants, that is what the law gets!”

“B-But…” Espio started.

“Don’t worry… I’ve seen it happen before…” Sonic spoke, softly.

Team Chaotix’s eyes bugged out in realization before Sonic turned to Vector with a stern look.

“Vector, you just have to go with the cops.” Sonic instructed. “I promise that things will get better for you.”

The crocodile blinked twice before weakly nodding. “Okay…”

“Heh, like you have a choice!” The first police officer scoffed.

“Come with us, criminal!” The second police officer added.

With that, they had dragged Vector with the latter looking back in sadness and Espio and Charmy looking upset. Sonic on the other hand, crossed his arms.

“Okay, first, we have to team up with Tails to form a prison break.” Sonic spoke, sternly.

Espio’s eyes widened. “You can’t expect us to break out Vector and things will go back to normal!”

“Why not?” Sonic shrugged. “Things gone back to normal after the ARK incident. The same incident where I was a fugitive.”

Espio and Charmy blinked twice.

“Look, wait until this guy wakes up and sneak him back to your agency.” Sonic instructed. “I will go to get Tails and meet you there to discuss a prison break.”

With that, he ran towards the exit and sped up, leaving Espio and Charmy staring in disbelief with the unconscious Latch.

“Um, Espio… Have you got the feeling...?” Charmy started.

“...That most of the world are morons?” Espio sighed.

“Yeah, pretty much…”

This melee’s winner is…

VECTOR THE CROCODILE
One-Minute Melee: Vector the Crocodile VS Latch
This is one of those match-ups I took from one of Contraneo's ideas. Basically, I saw the match-up one day and I was like "Woah, there is ANOTHER headphone-wearing crocodile?" So I did some research on the character and by extension, Lethal League and I really loved the concept. Simple yet hectic. I want to see if I could fight a match like that.

HINT FOR NEXT BATTLE: These two small animals are notorious for outsmarting cats much bigger than them. However, let's see if they could take on somebody their own size.

(Outworld; Marketplace)


It was a peaceful and normal day in the world of Outworld. Or as peaceful and normal a desert city could be. Regardless, everyone seemed to be going along their usual business as always. Kotal Kahn, the current rule of Outworld seemed to be actually doing a decent job.

One of the many top enforcers of Kotal Kahn was walking around the city while scanning to make sure that he was doing alright. However, he wasn’t walking. He was floating. Even by Outworld’s standards, he looked rather strange with a black and red hooded cloak, black bandages covering part of his skin and his green eyes.

Ermac put his hands behind his back while looking around the courtyard, scanning to see if everything was under control. So far, so good. It was actually almost done with his patrol so he could go back to the palace soon.

“What the?”

“What in the Netherrealm is THAT?”

“It’s definitely something you don’t see every day.”

Ermac raised an uncovered eyebrow before looking in the direction of the series of voices to see a bunch of civilians looking at something. Some kind of blob.

However, said blob had started to grow, much to the surprise of everyone. Then, it started to change shape into a person. They were a muscular man wearing nothing, but an old-fashioned Aztec-themed kilt and had black and red dreadlocks with V-shaped markings all over their body.

“Devour… Vour… Vour…”

Ermac’s eyes bugged out when he recognised the figure before floating up higher a bit.

“Everyone, get back!” Ermac cried out in his booming voice. “This man is dangerous!”

Unfortunately, his warning came too late for one particular old lady because before she could react, said dreadlocked man stomped over to said old woman who was standing between him and Ermac and slapped him in the face. Everyone looked shocked as the old woman was knocked to the ground and was sent sprawling.

Ermac looked at the fallen old woman in horror before glaring at the dreadlocked man. “Necalli, are we to presume?”

“I am… You must be Ermac… Mac… Mac…” The dreadlocked man confirmed with a low sputter.

“That we are.” The amalgam of souls answered while crossing his arms in a cool fashion.

“Your soul… ALL of them!” Necalli announced before getting into a stance. “...Shall be mine!”

Ermac just scoffed before looking around. “Everyone, make sure that you are out of range! This may get messy!”

Everyone obliged as they stepped back. ...Well, except for the old woman lying bleeding on the ground. Ermac nodded before getting into a stance of his own.

“I will have a feast…” Necalli roared.

“We were never one for puns, but this one seems appropriate.” Ermac scoffed with green energy engulfing his hands. “You are about to bite off more than you could chew…”

PUT YOUR ENTIRE SOUL INTO IT!
FIGHT!

(60 Seconds)


Necalli made the first move by running forward with a feral look on his face and swung his arms wildly. Ermac quickly raised his arms to block, but while the guard was successful, he found himself getting scratched as if he was actually blocking against a literal wild animal. As Ermac winced, Necalli kicked his foot out and caught the former in the stomach, sending the amalgam of souls flying back.

However, Ermac quickly recovered by floating in a circular motion where he was right-side up, just in time to Necalli leaping forward to perform another slash. But this time, Ermac wasn’t going to block it as he floated to the side and kicked Necalli in the face. The dreadlocked man staggered to the side, but soon recovered before pouncing straight at Ermac.

However, Ermac had just floated up which allowed Necalli to struck nothing, but air and crash on the ground. The latter glared up at Ermac who just floated up and out of Necalli’s range. The dreadlocked man growled before rushing towards the nearest wall (with several civilians wisely running out of his way) and when he got close enough, he leapt at said wall.

Much to several civilians’ awe, Necalli started to run up the wall on all fours and once he was high enough, he leapt off of it and bounced off of it. Taken off-guard by this, Ermac took Necalli’s pounce head-on and was sent soaring towards the ground before crashing on the ground. With Necalli on top of Ermac, the former started to scratch furiously at Ermac’s face with his fingernails.

(50 Seconds)

Ermac cried out in pain before sending out his palms forward, resulting in a burst of green energy into Necalli’s face. The dreadlocked man was sent flying onto his back, which made Ermac to float up and outstretched his hand to summon green energy around Necalli. The amalgam of souls then proceeded to slam his opponent onto the ground several times.

While an efficient technique, Ermac’s telekinesis could only be used for a short amount of time, so after a few slams, his hold on Necalli vanished, leaving the dreadlocked man sprawling on his face. Ermac smirked before floating just above Necalli and then dropped his floating to land straight on top of the latter’s back. ...Or he would have if Necalli didn’t recover and rolled out of the way.

After Ermac had landed on nothing, but ground, Necalli kicked his foot back and caught his opponent in the side. Necalli then followed up the assault by grabbing his opponent by the head and slammed him onto the ground. However, before the dreadlocked man could stomp on Ermac, the latter disappeared into a green wispy smoke before reappearing behind Necalli and kicking him in the back, causing him to stagger forward.

Necalli recovered and turned around, just in time to see Ermac flying towards him while engulfed in soul energy. Necalli raised his arms to block and while the attack was a success, he was sent skidding back on his feet while a way back. Necalli growled before rushing forward to which Ermac just scoffed before getting ready to telepathically grab Necalli again.

(40 Seconds)

However, Necalli wasn’t running into a straight line. He kept hopping from left to right, making it hard for Ermac to get a lock on him. So it made it easy pickings for Necalli to get close enough to pounce at him again. However, instead of being knocked down, Ermac thought quickly and floated straight up into the air with Necalli on him. However, this had proven harder than it seems, seeing that his opponent was not only bigger, but very feral.

Necalli then sank his teeth into Ermac’s shoulder, causing the amalgam of souls to cry out in pain. Deciding to try a desperate action, Ermac erupted himself with an aura of soul energy, striking Necalli off of him and sending him flying to the ground. Despite in pain, Necalli had managed to recover in mid-air and gracefully landed on his feet. He then looked up to see Ermac examining his shoulder.

Ermac growled before glaring down at Necalli before thrusting out his palm, sending a ball of green energy down at Necalli who ran out of the way. Ermac then started to alternate thrusting his palm out, sending a series of soul energy balls downwards which Necalli proceeded to run around while dodging. When he saw that Necalli was not going to tire out any time soon, Ermac tried a different tactic.

Ermac then teleported again, but this time, instead of reappearing behind Necalli, he appeared in FRONT of him. Before Necalli could react, Ermac then sent out his palms out in the former’s face, striking him with a burst of soul energy. Necalli was sent flying back until he landed on his stomach. Necalli growled before weakly getting up. He then glared at Ermac before letting out a feral roar. This resulted in his black-and-red dreadlocks turning into blood red, long flowing hair and his eyes turned black.

As the civilians jumped at this, Ermac raised an unseen eyebrow. “So we forced you to use your true power. We suppose we should be blessed.”

(30 Seconds)

Necalli then dashed towards the wall again. However, he was much faster and made it in very little time. He then pounced at the wall before kicking off of it and was sent flying towards Ermac. While startled, the amalgam of souls was not going to fall for the same trick twice and sending out a series of soul balls forward. However, Necalli just scratched at each projectile, negating each of them.

Necalli then kicked his foot out and caught Ermac in the stomach. As the latter’s eyes bugged out in pain, Necalli used his weight to send the two crashing to the ground hard. Ermac cried out in pain as he spat out blood. Necalli then proceeded to stamp onto Ermac’s chest multiple times. Ermac kept shouting out in pain. Then, Ermac then teleported a good distance away and reappeared a good distance away from Necalli while holding his chest.

“By our souls’ ancestors… The tales were not for show…” Ermac commented, weakly.

Necalli then ran towards Ermac who floated a couple of feet off of the ground and decided to go on the defensive, trying his best to evade as many as scratches as possible. So far, he actually managed to avoid every single one. However, Necalli had stopped himself before letting out a loud roar into Ermac’s face. The amalgam of souls cried out in pain before gripping his head.

This made Necalli an opening to grab Ermac’s head with both hands and proceeded to do a series of headbutts to his forehead. After the final headbutt, Ermac was left dazed. Necalli gave a crooked smirk before licking his lip and leaned forward to bite Ermac’s face. Fortunately for the latter, he snapped out of his daze in time and acted quickly by holding Necalli’s face with soul energy around his hand.

(20 Seconds)

This resulted in a power struggle between the two. Necalli’s insane strength against Ermac’s soul-powered one. Realizing that this fight was heading towards a stalemate, Ermac had flown straight up into the air and out of Necalli’s grasp. Seeing that the berserker was taken off-guard, Ermac thought quickly and did a diving kick forward straight into his head, making Necalli stagger back.

Ermac then flew over and sent out his palms with soul energy surrounding them. However, Necalli had recovered in time to roar again, this time, sending out a projectile of red and black energy forward, causing the two attacks to clash. With Ermac recovering from his own attack, Necalli wrapped his arms around Ermac in a powerful bearhug. The latter cried out in pain.

...For one second before teleporting out of Necalli’s grasp and reappearing behind him. Ermac then grabbed Necalli’s head and started to engulf it with soul energy. Necalli cried out in pain before jumping back and crushing Ermac with his weight. Despite having the wind taken out of him, Ermac grunted in annoyance before quickly concentrating and using his telekinesis.

Ermac gritted his teeth before lifting Necalli up and having him hang upside-down. Ermac then proceeded to do a series of soul-powered tackles to Necalli while he was helpless. Soon, the interval for Ermac’s telekinesis was done and Necalli fell to the ground like a stone. However, the moment he did so, he immediately leapt back to his feet before glaring at Ermac.

“What? We thought you wanted our souls!” Ermac smirked.

(10 Seconds)

Necalli let out a roar of anger before dashing forward while swinging both of his claws. Ermac’s eyes bugged out before flying to the side. Suddenly, he heard groaning. Looking down, he saw the old woman Necalli shoved to the side, weakly propping herself on her hands and knees. Ermac blinked twice. Before giving a dark smirk before turning to see Necalli rushing over again.

(5 Seconds)

Acting quickly, Ermac created an aura of soul energy which resulted in Necalli covering his eyes and staggering back in pain.

(4 Seconds)

Engulfing his fists in soul energy, Ermac then did a series of powered-up punches to Necalli’s face and stomach.

(3 Seconds)

Ermac then did a flip kick which not only sent Necalli staggering further back, but also sent him flying towards towards the old woman.

(2 Seconds)

Ermac then grabbed the arm of said old woman before THROWING said latter at Necalli who had just recovered.

(1 Second)

While initially startled, the old woman gritted her teeth before punching her fist out into Necalli’s face. The latter fell onto his back while the old woman started to punch his face in. Judging by how Necalli wasn’t even crying out in pain, it was obvious that the first punch did it in for him.

KO!

“You brute! How dare you strike down random old ladies in the street!?” The old woman roared during punches. “Just because Outworld is more than a bit of a shithole, that doesn’t mean you can’t have proper manners, punk!”

Ermac crossed his arms with a smirk while chuckling at the scene. “Oh, Blanche. Never change.”

“Ermac!”

The amalgam of souls’ eyes widened before turning his head to see a familiar reptilian-like man clad in green and black.

“Ah, Reptile. Glad of you to join the show.” Ermac greeted.

The Saurian blinked twice before looking at Blanche beating down Necalli before looking back at Ermac. “Um, do I even want to know?”

“It is actually rather simple if you know the context.” Ermac reassured before looking at Necalli. “That is Necalli, an ancient Aztec warrior notorious for stealing the souls of powerful warriors.”

Reptile’s eyes bugged out at this. “Wait, if THAT’S the case then…”

“Yes, he saw us as a buffet.” Ermac commented before crossing his arms with a smirk. “Well, it seems that he bit off much more than he could chew!”

Reptile blinked twice. “That… Sounds like something that Johnny Cage would say.”

Ermac’s smirk vanished. “Do you want us to smack you with your own hand?”

“Hey!”

Ermac and Reptile’s eyes widened before looking to see Necalli turning into a pile of goo before blending into the ground.

“I am NOT done disciplining you!” Blanche roared. “Get back here, you coward!”

“Hey, he’s getting away!” Reptile cried out.

“Tch, let him.” Ermac scoffed, crossing his arms.

Reptile looked at Ermac with a raised eyebrow. “You sure? He may be back.”

“Don’t worry. He lived up to his name, but it is proven that we could best him in a fight.” The black-and-red-clad man reassured.

Reptile paused. “Even still, you should probably report to the Kahn about this.”

“Indeed. We owe him an explanation and an apology considering that this happened because of us.” Ermac agreed.

He then smirked.

“But other than that, we fail to see why he should fret.” Ermac pointed out before gesturing towards Blanche. “After all, Necalli now know first hand not to mess with an Outworlder.”

With that, he and Reptile turn towards Blanche, who was now rolling up her sleeves while angrily looking for any signs of Necalli. The two couldn’t help, but smirk.

This melee’s winner is…

“Dang… The big guy really did a number on him, didn’t he?”

“Poor little guy…”

“Hey, I think he is coming too!”

“H-Hey, are you okay, little guy?”

“Guys, give the guy some air, you morons!”

The figure groaned as he slowly fluttered his eyes. All that he could remember that he was flying off into a large abyss as if he was a rocket. As he slowly gave consciousness, he saw that he was being surrounded by a bunch of concerned people. However, to say that they were mismatched was an understatement.

One of them was some kind of brown-furred marsupial wearing nothing, but jeans and red shoes. Another was a big brown-furred bear with yellow shorts and a blue backpack that had the head of a red-furred bird poked out of it. Another was a man clad in a black suit with sunglasses and had red hair in a style that looked like he came out of the eighties. The final one was a brunette young woman.

“Hey, little guy. Welcome back to the world of the living!” The bear smiled.

“Yeah, welcome to the world of the losers!” The bird in the backpack snarked.

“Shh!” Banjo scolded before glaring up at the bird.

Said figure had sat up… Somehow. The person who regained consciousness was a white living glove with eyes and a mouth. It was then everything came to light now. He was actually fighting against the boss of this huge multi-universal tournament to get in. However, he lost.

“Please ignore her, Glover.” The bear reassured.. “She is still grumpy about OUR lost…”

“We HAD it! We totally had it!” The bird roared. “But NO! YOU just have to move in the wrong direction and made me waste a perfectly-good double jump!”

The bear narrowed his eyes. “We would had ran into a strong projectile, Kazooie!”

“Um, Banjo? That overgrown glove had made us something called SHIELD!” The bird roared.

With that, the two had started to bicker with each other. The well-dressed man and the woman rolled their eyes. The marsupial on the other hand was more focused on the glove’s health as he offered a hand out. The glove smiled before accepting it. And by accepting it, he wrapped his body around the marsupial’s hand.

While confused, the marsupial just got up to his feet and the glove had gone back into a “standing” position on top of his hands.

“Hey, hey, hey!” The well-dressed man reassured, walking over to Banjo & Kazooie. “You both did your very best!”

“More than we could say for YOU, Agent J!” Kazooie snarked back.

The well-dressed man jumped at this. “Say what!?”

“Kazooie, Agent J had fought just as hard as us!” Banjo scolded.

“Um, yeah, but he didn’t HIT as hard!” The bird countered. “No, seriously, he tried to fight with dancing moves and a microphone!”

“Hey! Excuuuuuse me for trying something new!” Agent J scoffed, crossing his arms.

“Um, there is a reason why no one ever tried it before.” Kazooie scolded.

“Spare me. I rather not be another sword fighter.” Agent J scoffed, running his hand through his hair.

“He’s right, Kazooie. No one had ever used a rhythm-based fighting style before.” Banjo reminded. He then paused. “Well, except for that gorilla in the earlier tournaments.”

“Well, speaking of styles that already been used before.” Kazooie spoke up before turning her attention to the woman. “You would have done a lot better if you brought your guns!”

“Um, no, I wouldn’t. You know why?” The woman reminded. “Because he BANNED me from using my guns.”

Kazooie’s eyes bugged out. “Say what?”

“I second that! Doesn’t that black magic witch use guns?” Banjo added.

“Yeah, but the bullets are more magical than realistic, so she could get away with it.” The woman shrugged.

Agent J winced. “Ouch… Sorry that you had your moveset limited, babe…”

“But first off, it’s fine. If that mercenary could have a moveset without guns, so can I.” The woman reassured before holding up a bow. “Besides, this has become my weapon of choice nowadays anyway.”

Suddenly, the woman wrapped her hands around Agent J’s wrist and flipped him over her and onto his back, startling everyone.

“Second off, what have I told you about calling me stuff like that?” The woman spoke with a calm yet still vex tone.

“S-Sorry, love… Um, I mean, Lara…” Agent J winced.

Everyone snickered as the woman crossed her arms with a smirk.

“I must say, Crash, I am surprised that you didn’t beat the Master Hand.” Banjo piped up looking at the marsupial.

“Yeah, you have been doing well recently.” Lara agreed.

The marsupial just stared at everyone. He just shrugged his shoulders.

Kazooie just rolled her eyes. “...Because he is an idiot.”

“Now, now.” Banjo scolded.

“I think that spinner got a decent chance. Sure, he didn’t win, but he still did a considerable amount of damage to the Master Hand!” Agent J pointed out before looking at Banjo & Kazooie. “So did you.”

“Yeah, see, Kazooie?” Banjo reassured. “We still got a chance!”

“It is not that we DON’T got a chance. I just hate losing…” Kazooie muttered.

Everyone either laughed or rolled their eyes.

“I am going to be blunt, Glover. Your fighting style with your ball could be your greatest strength, but also your biggest weakness.” Lara explained, sternly.

The glove just paused as Lara continued.

“Sure, it gives you a fighting style that most people can’t predict, but all it takes for them to destroy or knock away said ball and it will make you easy pickings for you to be taken off-guard.” Lara explained.

“Oh, don’t be like that!” Agent J scolded. “If he is confident enough to go into this tournament WITH that limitation in mind, then he shouldn’t change who he is.”

“True… I’ve seen bigger weaknesses…” Lara mused, crossing her arms.

“All in all, I think we all have a decent shot of making it in!” Agent J reassured.

“Agreed.” Banjo smiled. “Each and every one of us had shown us our stuff and when we should get in.”

“Maybe we won’t get in at THIS tournament, but with people like the Belmonts getting in, anything is possible, right?” Lara added.

Everyone smiled and nodded.

“Well, everyone except for the Piranha Plant.” Kazooie piped up.

“Well, THAT goes without saying.” Lara muttered.
Story Trade For OR: Losers In Potential Waiting
This is my part of the story trade I am doing with :iconorange-ratchet: Just like last time, I am doing one for an aftermath of one of his many One-Minute Melees and in the end, I chose his Master Hand VS Glover fight. Why? Because I LOVE Super Smash Bros and I couldn't resist Glover interacting with several characters that didn't made the cut into Ultimate. The characters are as follows:

Crash Bandicoot: If anyone knows me, I am a huge Crash Bandicoot fan so naturally I am rooting for him to get in. Especially since he is becoming relevant again with the remasters of not only the classic trilogy or Crash Team Racing.

Banjo & Kazooie: Another popular pick. Didn't grew up with the game series, but I get the hype for both the game AND the characters.

Lara Croft from Tomb Raider: ...Honestly, I just wanted to include a female in the story (Kazooie may or may not count depending on how you look at it), but I think she has a small chance. Emphasis on small, though. Regardless, she IS one of the biggest gaming female icons in the past.

Agent J from Elite Beat Agents: Yeah, most people are probably scratching their heads at this and frankly, there is no chance he will get in, but I love rhythm games and Elite Beat Agents (and Ouendan) are awesome!

And of course, Glover. Has a snowball's chance in hell, but I could see a potential moveset. However, his obscurity REALLY hurts him in the long run.

You don't have to read Orange-Ratchet's story to know the context, but...: www.deviantart.com/orange-ratc…

I hope that this will suffice for you, Orange!

Vantto hummed a jovial tune as he made his way through town. As he did so, several people stopped what they were doing to see him. Or rather what he was carrying. For once, he actually ignored the attention he was getting and continued to make his way towards his destination.

Samuel’s Shop and Sell. Vantto proudly marched in. The white-scaled black-clad dragon with the eyepatch, Samuel, stood there with his face on his hand in a bored fashion. He then looked up to see Vantto.

Carrying a lot of boxes of Love Bugs.

“Heyyyyyy, Samuel!” Vantto greeted with a big grin.

“Hey, Vantto…” The dragon muttered in his usual grumpy disposition. “I see that YOU want to exchange Love Bugs too, huh?”

“Yeppers.” Vantto nodded. “There were a bunch of them right outside of my house! Kato had shown me how to catch them without a net!”

“Ah, yes… I could see Kato doing that…” Samuel muttered. “So do you have exactly enough for a Silver Net, soru?”

Vantto eagerly nodded. “That Silver Net will look great with my suit! I would like to trade with these groovy bugs I collected, please!”

Samuel just shrugged his shoulders. “I don’t know much about fashion, but here is your Silver Net.”

With that, the mismatched pair had traded their respective items. Vantto looked in awe as Samuel handed him the Silver Net. His eyes sparkled as the light shined from the net.

“Oh, wow…” Vantto spoke. “It is lovelier up close.”

With that, he did a few practice swings with it. However, he did so in an over-the-top style. At one point, he even swung it around as if it was a combat staff.

“Hey, you don’t have to stop doing that, but could you at LEAST do it outside?” Samuel muttered.

Vantto frowned while putting his net over his shoulder. Not because he was told to stop, but because of Samuel’s attitude.

“You know, you need to smile more.” He scolded.

Samuel rolled his good eye. “If I had a Bell for every time I heard THAT, I would have made Lilypad, the richest town in world.”

Vantto just shook his head before giving a two-finger salute with his free hand. “Well, anyway, thanks for the net. Ciao!”

Samuel returned the gesture, however, with less animation before Vantto made his way out of the door.

After exiting, Vantto continued to look at the Silver Net in awe. Sure, this type of net was better than other nets, but he would have looked in awe regardless. After all, he was from the big city so he didn’t really had that much experience with bug-catching.

However, thanks to Kato, he more or less knew the basics and was ready to go try to catch for himself. The fact that he got a more efficient net should help out for a beginner.

He then made his way towards one of the many fields of Lilypad and started to look around. Indeed, they were a lot of buzzing bugs around. Vantto smirked before spinning his new net like a combat staff.

“Well, let’s see if their buzz is worse than their bite!”
Creature Crossing: First Silver Hunt
Here is a prompt for the Weekly Bug Catching section of :iconcreature-crossing: seeing that I had gotten a brand-new Silver Net from the Love Bug Event. Now I won't be doing this EVERY week, especially since you don't have to draw/write to enter the weekly bug hunt. I just wanted to show Vantto getting in and using it for the first time. Also, I gave :iconverastophilis:'s Samuel a cameo because why not?

And thus, another Nintendo Direct had come and as always, it didn't disappoint, bringing a lot of content. As always, I will give my opinion on the matter:

- Super Mario Maker 2 is the opening "act" and I couldn't be more happier. I actually missed out of the craze in the last game. However, this time, I am going to get it. Especially since they are going to have features from Super Mario 3D World in a 2D setting.

- I am not too into the Marvel (or DC games), but I am not going to lie, I am liking the concept of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 game. Playing as four of your favourite Marvel heroes/anti-heroes and take down villains. Hell yeah!

- ...Man, Nintendo really teased us with this Spring Update. I hope that whatever is in said Update is worth it though I know it will.

- I didn't grew up playing Castlevania, but I definitely see the appeal and its mark on gaming and how Konami mistreats the franchises just like their employees. So Bloodstained is a nice breath of fresh air.

- The Disney Tsum Tsum Festival game looks cute. I got nothing else, I just think the concept is adorable.

- Nice to see StarFox getting love, even if it is through the StarLink. Falco, Peppy and even SLIPPY is playable.

- Yoshi's Crafted World is already not only cute, but creative. Even more so than Woolly World! It is really taking full advantage of the dimension mechanic.

- Heh. I am liking the concept for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Your avatar is actually a teacher. In most fire emblem games, the teacher is usually the Jagen archetype. And you will be teaching one of three houses. Also, I am not into Harry Potter, but am I the only one getting a Hogswarts vibe?

- Tetris is THE addictive game of early gaming. LONG before Angry Birds and Candy Crush. So I am not surprised that it got a new game. Known against 99 people? I could already taste the salt from the many, many defeats in one round.

- Surprise, surprise, Final Fantasy VII is getting love in the Final Fantasy showcase. But hey, at least IX is getting some love. :heart: So underrated that game.

- Astral Chain seems quite flashy and fun. Then again, this IS a Platinum Games game.

- The guys at Nintendo picked an unorthodox yet still fitting way to end the presentation. Link's Awakening. I seen a lot of love for this game so I am happy that the people at Nintendo heard their cries. And look, more Goombas to stomp on! Or rather, stab on!
