Raseri is a very mysterious person, he does not reveal too much about himself during first encounters. His trust is not very easy to gain as well. He is rather fearless, and is capable of fearlessly taking on even the most terrifying and fearsome beings. He is of average intelligence, but he is a gifted battle strategist and tactician and uses this knowledge to make him one of the most dangerous fighters to ever exist. Raseri is usually a calm and collected individual out of battle however when in battle he is known to be very wrathful and filled with rage in his attacks. The Nordic Tiger is known for his legendary anger, he does not hesitate to showcase it in battle, but fortunately for him, even when immensely angered, he somehow manages to think clearly and conduct proper strategies. Raseri has a very strong sense of justice and heroism. He feels the need to help the helpless and battle any threat to peace and the planet Earth. Although he is known to be very ruthless, violent and merciless in battle and he does not hesitate to brutally kill his opponents in battle. Though he means well, Raseri's brutal and merciless nature make him more similar to an anti-hero than an actual hero. He can be rather vengeful if he feels that he has been wronged by someone. He is at times careless and can be quite destructive in battle, although this is usually when he unleashes a great deal of his power. Despite all of this, he can be a very respectful individual depending on who he is talking to. With well-known enemies he can be quite disrespectful, but with new opponents he will usually act cold towards them. Though he is now aware that he is a demigod, Raseri finds himself more human than divine, mostly due to the fact that he was raised as a human being. Raseri can be a little stubborn at times, primarily due to his natural sense of confidence. Though he is confident, he is not arrogant, he is merely aware of his capabilities. Raseri is one of the most ferocious fighters to ever exist. He is not a headstrong fighter, he will first create a strategy and then launch his ruthless assault. In battle Raseri can be quite serious. Despite all of this, he can be a compassionate and caring person, especially to those that are close to him. At times, Raseri may be seen smoking what appears to be a cigarette but is actually a healthy type of mystical herbs wrapped in a cylinder of thin paper, when one end is ignited by fire, it allows the Nordic Tiger to inhale a magic smoke that replenishes his energies and heals his wounds. This is called "Magiske-Urt". Though he is a ferocious and fierce fighter in battle, sparing no one from his endless wrath, Raseri is a genuinely kind and compassionate person. Those who are close to him describe him as usually gentle and kind, he is slightly cold to strangers as his trust is difficult to obtain. The Son of Thunder is a fiercely independent individual, not relying on anyone other than himself. Though he welcomes help, he will never seek it. Raseri enjoys life and stresses living it to the fullest as a great importance. It is interesting to note that Raseri will hardly ever teach anyone the secrets of his three greatest martial arts. Mastering every other fighting style that has ever existed has allowed him to create three of the deadliest martial arts to ever exist, "The Nor Way", "The Fist of Life" and "Kinetiske Stil". The Nordic Tiger holds the secrets of his three martial arts very dear to him and will almost never teach anyone his martial arts. However, Raseri often has a soft spot for children who seek to learn the martial arts and will teach them one of the martial arts for self-defense purposes. But he is no fool, he will only teach those with a good heart. Raseri is greatly feared among his enemies for his skill and even some of his peers hold some fear even though he is a good-natured person. Raseri loves to joke with his friends and is quite friendly with them once they get to know him. He is known for being very helpful as well and always puts his friends above himself. Raseri is known to be a fan of rap music but he only listens to what he calls "true lyricists" such as Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Rakim, Big L, Raekwon and more. He is a fan of good lyricism and holds a dislike for most of the mainstream rap music due its lack of true lyricism. He also happens to have a tremendous appetite and when he is feeling very hungry, he daydreams quite a lot, usually about funny situations with friends. Despite being calm and easygoing, it is well known that Raseri's trust is difficult to gain. This is due to a past experience between him, his former best friend and his first love. The first woman that he had ever fallen in love and dated left him for his best friend, and Raseri was the last one to know. This has left a deep wound in his heart which is why he barely trusts anyone and may act a little cold towards strangers at times. The unfortunate situation between him, his first lover and former best friend caused him to break his ties with him after he tried to warn his former best friend that she would leave him as well and that he'd be the last to know. The three were once close but now Raseri loathes both of them while the two are no longer together as his former lover did the exact same thing she did to him to his former best friend. And though the two attempted to reconcile with Raseri, the Nordic Tiger boldly refused and has never spoken of the incident to anyone else ever since. This has troubled him in the past in trusting women that he grew infatuated with. He hasn't truly moved on from it yet but he is trying to forget it. Raseri is a bold and upfront person who isn't afraid of confrontation. One trait that is almost always displayed when he is disrespected is that Raseri in his words, "I don't take sh*t from anyone". It is also interesting to note that Raseri can be somewhat of a joker at times, often poking friendly fun at his friends in order to lighten the atmosphere. Being the greatest fighter in the world, Raseri does not like the fame quite much but has learned to deal with it by staying away from the public eye. The Nordic Tiger is also politically active and is interested in politics. He dislikes capitalism and strongly supports socialism. He has stated before that he supports democracy but has also suggested that most of the world's politicians are corrupt. Aside from his political views, Raseri also donates quite a lot of money to charities and causes which have made some call him a philanthropist as he actively participates in them. All in all despite of his intimidating physique, Raseri is one of the kindest and honest people in the world. Raseri has strong political views and supports left-wing politics. He yearns for a day when equality rules the world. Raseri has also stated that he admires revolutionaries and other political figures such as Che Guevara, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and others. Being a supporter of left-wing politics, Raseri does everything in his power to help the disadvantaged. His political views are so strong that Thor himself has said that if Raseri wasn't a fighter, he would have been a revolutionary. Aside from these views, Raseri is also against animal cruelty and is an animal lover, interestingly enough, the leather that Raseri wears doesn't come from animals due to his views, they are created by Odin's reality altering powers. Despite being a demigod, Raseri himself does not believe that his divine relatives are gods. He has stated that he sees no difference between the Norse Gods etc. and the modern superheroes with extraordinary powers. He holds a belief that focuses on the theory that though they claim to be gods, they might just be super-powered beings from other dimensions. Raseri himself does not believe in divine existences thus implying that he does not believe in any god. He was once asked in an interview which religion he followed and he replied by saying, "Peace and love". This is one aspect of his personality that Odin dislikes. Raseri is also interested in philosophy and has read about metaphysics, ontology, epistemology, existentialism, realism, rationalism and more. Unlike most demigods or gods, Raseri puts a lot of importance on love. Whenever he is asked why he cannot gain control of his Halv-Gud, he replies with, "Because my love is greater than my rage", implying that he has too much love to focus on his rage. Recently, Raseri has come to realize that he harbors feelings for Dahlia and he will approach her about them. He also believes that it was a mistake to favor Harumi over her.
The Nordic Tiger is a ridiculously tall individual with a very menacing flawless physique. He has a god-like physique which gives off a natural intimidating aura. Raseri stands at a staggering seven feet and eight inches in height, allowing him to easily tower over most people. Raseri usually has a serious or no-nonsense facial expression on display, although he does occasionally smile during moments of joy or when he is slaughtering his opponent. He has long brown hair that nearly reach his shoulders in terms of length, his hair is also somewhat spiky. Due to his menacingly massive size and height, Raseri uses this as an advantage in his long-reaching attacks. His highly muscular build is natural although he has grown even more muscular through training, why he is naturally so muscular is due to being half-god. Raseri's eye color vary from time to time. Although his eyes are usually light blue, they can quickly change to a red or blue color devoid of pupils and irises, depending on his emotional state. Raseri has large circular scars on his chest which resemble large bullet wounds, they have grown over time and have only stopped growing upon Raseri reaching adulthood, implying that they are mystical in nature. Their origins are unknown, however Raseri can apparently draw power from it. Though Raseri is skilled in many forms of hand to hand combat, he specializes in Muay Thai, having been a fan of the fighting style since childhood. The Nordic Tiger's clothes vary from time to time, he has no fixed attire. Though his hair is at times long and shoulder-length, he sometimes also has his hair cut. An interesting note is that Raseri radiates a rather pleasant smell even during intense physical activity. He is also noted as having magnificent hair, especially when he has long hair. Raseri's flawlessly beautiful hair coupled with his facial good looks and god-like physique have made him the target of many women's desires around the world, especially because he has become famous as an undefeated fighter and hero. He is considered to be extremely attractive but it is interesting to note that Raseri is completely oblivious to his outstanding good looks and doesn't seem to have any idea that countless women are chasing after him. Raseri is also known for usually having very beautiful light blue eyes. Raseri's usual attire consists of a black leather jacket with a red fist image on the back, a white t-shirt, a pair of black leather gloves, dark blue jeans, black shoes and dogtags. At times he may even wear sunglasses. Other than his incredible hair, Raseri's most prominent feature is his outstanding good looks, with many saying that he has the face of a god due to his high attractiveness. After a recent war, Raseri sustained a large flame-shaped scar on his right arm.
Fighter Since Birth
Raseri is the son of the legendary Norse God of Thunder Thor and a mortal Norwegian woman named Mari Ruud. Due to an enchantment of Thor's, Raseri was born with the potential for limitless physical strength. Prior to the Nordic Tiger's birth, Thor had noticed an unspeakably beautiful mortal woman with a pure heart, a woman by the name of Mari. She was a college professor who taught history, and she was quite fascinated with Norse Mythology and found Thor and Hela to be her favorite Norse Gods. Eventually Thor fell in love with this mortal woman and chose to pursue her in the guise of a newly hired professor at the same college, a man named Richard Hemming. Falling for Richard's charms and intellect, Mari too fell in love with him. Years after they had first met, Richard impregnated her but not before using a mysterious enchantment that went unnoticed by Mari. Before their child was even born, Richard began to miss the glories of Asgard, not to mention that he worried that Odin would soon be angered by his long absence from his home realm. This prompted Richard to reveal to his lover that he is in fact the mythical god Thor. Though at total shock at first, Mari was not given much time to truly react as Thor then vanished, returning to Asgard, never again appearing before her. Months later, Mari gave birth to her son, whom she named Raseri. Months after his birth, Raseri began to show signs of superhuman strength such as effortlessly lifting his mother's with a single arm. As a child he was a fan of martial arts and thus pursued a life of fighting, not to mention that he had an obvious passion for fighting. Devoting his life to becoming the most perfect and complete fighter to ever walk the face of the Earth, Raseri mastered numerous fighting styles at quite an early age. His mother had never told him about his father, and Raseri himself never truly cared, until he found out who his father actually was. It was during his 17th birthday that his father Thor appeared before him and soon took him to Asgard to master every single art of combat the Norse Gods had to offer. Raseri did all of this in a single year, and he proved to be such a ferocious fighter that he was nicknamed "The Nordic Tiger" by most of Valhalla's warriors. Before returning his son to Earth, Thor had Odin award Raseri with a mystical staff of great power, a staff called "The Pole of Asgard". And once he returned his son to Earth (known to the Asgardians as Midgard), Thor left a great fortune for his son, resulting in Raseri becoming effortlessly wealthy. At the age of 24, Raseri had already mastered all of Earth's deadliest fighting styles and had created several of his own. Aware of his potential, Raseri decided to pursue the life of a traveling fighter, adventurer and hero.
Foreign Fighting (Part 1)
Before he could make a name for himself on the planet Earth, Raseri was "offered" the opportunity to prove himself as a deadly fighter and powerful warrior on the realm of Asgard. It was during a random day, Raseri was in an intense training session, attempting to surpass his limits. It was then that he was visited by an astral projection of the All-Father Odin (his grandfather). "Grandson!", a booming voice of overwhelming godliness shouted in joy. Searching for the source of this disembodied voice, Raseri turned his head to find a fifteen foot tall astral projection of the powerful ruler of Asgard known as Odin, as well as his grandfather. "Odin?", Raseri uttered in confusion. "Yes it is I. I come here with a request grandson", the Norse God announced. "A request huh? What request?", a calm and curious Raseri asked. "It is Loki. He has taken over Asgard while I was in my Odinsleep state replenishing my energies. Thor was not on Asgard to defend it, he was doing business with the Olympian Gods, and once he returned he fell victim to one of Loki's spells. He is now temporarily trapped in Hel. But Loki only needs little time to destroy my kingdom. Because Thor is beyond my reach at the moment, I require your assistance in retrieving him so that you may save Asgard from this threat", Odin explained. After about a minute of thought, Raseri agreed, not only to save the home of his father and grandfather, but also to test his abilities in battle, "Of course I'll help. The home of father and grandfather is under siege", Raseri replied with enthusiasm. With a smile as a sign of approval, Odin used his abilities to create a horse that would transport Raseri to Asgard. Odin himself cannot teleport Raseri to Asgard since he was not allowed to complete his Odinsleep and is quite weak in comparison to his fully powered self. Climbing on to the horse, Raseri was quite excited about not only battling Loki's forces, but also to prove himself as one of the greatest warriors to ever exist. Suddenly, in a matter of seconds, the magical horse's eyes began to glow as Raseri rode off into the sky while Odin's astral projection vanished. As Raseri's horse took him through several dimensions as it made its way towards Asgard, the Nordic Tiger received a telepathic message from Odin, "Raseri, I am hiding in an area on Asgard that is invisible even to Loki's eyes. It is best you do not come see me, you might attract attention to my location and I may never be able to replenish my energies. But worry not. I will serve as your guide through Asgard and will provide you with wisdom. Good luck", so Raseri is basically on his own. If he indeed manages to accomplish the feat of singlehandedly saving Asgard, then building a reputation on Earth will be child's play.
As his horse took him closer and closer to Asgard, Odin informed him that one of Loki's giants are guarding the gates to his kingdom and he must be careful to kill him instantly before he can alert the others. "There will be a guard at the gates of Asgard, be sure not to let him see you before you attack him. And defeat him as soon as possible. Do not allow him to alert the others. I do not like to say this but.. the fate of Asgard rests on your shoulders", Odin said through a telepathic message. "Great, so no pressure", Raseri thought to himself. Finally, Raseri could spot the gates of Asgard. Fortunately the guard's back was facing the gates of the godly kingdom. The guard was a highly muscular giant, perhaps standing at sixteen to twenty feet tall. A truly monstrous warrior. Although appearances can be deceiving. Once close enough, Raseri leaped off the horse and charged his body with kinetic energy causing his eyes to glow white while his body radiated a shiny white aura. And in a ruthless display of brutally and raw power, Raseri quickly delivered a powerful blow on the back of the giant's head as he literally drove his body through the giant's head, causing it to erupt in a bloody mess. Raseri had made quick work of the guard as the kinetic energy left his body. The Son of Thunder then proceeded to easily pry open the gates of Asgard with his bare hands. "That guard was one of Loki's weakest minions, so do not get cocky over your victory", Odin advised in yet another telepathic message. "Well.. at least you didn't tell me not to be confident about my abilities", Raseri said in a joking manner, but Odin was far too serious, perhaps because he had much better knowledge of Asgard's current situation. "No sense of humor huh?", Raseri uttered as he walked past the gates of Asgard. But it was when he saw the state of Asgard that Raseri became more serious about the entire situation, it is actually somewhat rare for him to joke in such a serious situation. He is usually a no-nonsense type of person. Using his energy sensing abilities, Raseri could literally "see" an enemy's energy signature, so he would take the routes farthest from the energy signatures of Loki's minions, in order to avoid making his presence known which would result in failure.
Foreign Fighting (Part 2)
Having broken into the kingdom of Asgard, Raseri was focusing his efforts in keeping his presence a secret. He must at all costs remain undetected by Loki. As he walked through the kingdom of Asgard, he saw many beautiful buildings of unparalleled architectural brilliance that no human could even begin to compete with. As he moved deeper and deeper into the city, he spotted more marvelous structures of immense beauty. "The buildings back on Earth are nothing compared to these", the Thunder God's son thought to himself as he silently walked past countless beautiful buildings. Soon Raseri stopped walking to observe a tower he found quite magnificent. "A little look won't hurt. My energy-sensing powers indicate that I'm far from any potential threats, and I'm moving in areas that Loki doesn't care about", Raseri said to himself as he took a brief observation but was quickly interrupted by a group of Loki's minions. "Then you're energy-sensing is a little rusty", a pair of disembodied voices said in unison. Suddenly, a group of minor immortals appeared from thin air. Apparently they were there the whole time, but Raseri was unable to sense their presence due to their unique ability to cloak themselves from even the most powerful sensing abilities. "Loki will be pleased that the we captured the son of Thor. But before telling him, lets have a little fun shall we boys? How about we rough him up a little before notifying Loki", one of them said. "I think it will be good if you know the name of your captor. I am Vak the Executor, but you can call me Vak", Vak said with confidence. He ought to be confident as he was much much larger than Raseri, he was big enough to be considered a giant actually. "The executor huh? Funny how I'm going to kill a guy called the Executor", the Nordic Tiger said as he made a hand gesture telling Vak to come. However, the confident giant simply laughed diabolically as the much regular-sized immortals rushed forward to attack Raseri. One of them swung for a punch as Raseri quickly blocked it with his forearm and followed his block with a deadly chop across the immortal's torso. At first the immortal was absolutely fine and was about to ridicule Raseri for his seemingly failed attack, that was until his torso split in half. How was this possible? Raseri had sent a small amount of kinetic energy into the immortal's body with the chop that caused his body to split in half. The other immortals didn't back down as they all simultaneously charged straight at Raseri only to be bombarded with a merciless barrage of powerful kicks that targeted specific pressure points, causing their nervous systems to permanently turn off, effectively killing them. "Only you're left Vak", Raseri said as he cracked his knuckles in a menacing manner.
Upon hearing Raseri's threat, Vak began to laugh uncontrollably, "You?! What do you think you'll do?! You're fancy techniques may have worked on those fools but I am Vak the Executor! I will not FALL!", Vak shouted as he sent a jab aiming at Raseri's face. The Nordic Tiger however used his superior speed to easily dodge the giant's unrestrained strike. "Hmm that was a wild punch. You must be a brawler. I would've thought that even Loki's lowest minions would at least have some skill. At this rate you'll never land a hit", a calm Raseri said. But of course, Mr. Ruud's words only enraged Vak who proceeded to swing for more and more punches that Raseri was dodging effortlessly as Vak's rage increased during his endless struggle. "I'll end this quickly", Raseri said as he struck Vak on the gut with a heavy jab that caused the giant to vomit a large amount of blood. As he dropped to one knee, Vak revealed a cowardly side to him. "Don't kill me!", he pleaded. "I won't. But I can do so quite easily. You people call yourselves immortal, but as you can see from your men, you are all capable of dying. Maybe you're just immortal in the sense that you do not die of old age. But everybody can die. And you will if you don't tell me how to find Loki", Raseri said in a threatening manner as he ruthlessly grabbed Vak by the throat. "L...Loki is in a castle in Hel. But I don't know how to get there. Only the high level guys know that. Loki's stronger guards are running around Asgard, they can tell you something. Thats all I know, I swear", Vak struggled. Happy with the information he was told, Raseri released his grip on Vak. And as he began to walk away he revealed an interesting piece of information, "Vak..", Raseri said, "Yes?", Vak coweredl "I lied. You are going to die", Raseri said without a hint of remorse as Vak's body suddenly began to turn red as his veins began to pop out and swell, and in a matter of seconds every single blood vessel in his body exploded causing blood to flow out of Vak's eyes, ears, mouth and nose. A mere nanosecond after this, Vak died. But how? The jab Raseri used against Vak had struck a specific pressure point in Vak's nervous system that would soon cause every single blood vessel to violently burst open which would result in massive blood loss and unbearable pain. As Raseri embarked on a journey to Hel, he decided to look for some of Loki's higher minions in order to get some information on ways to get to Hel. "Grandson, I would help you get to Hel myself but having not completed my Odinsleep, I can no longer communicate with you telepathically, I...", however before Odin's telepathic message could end, the All-Father's energy had completely run out and he was now in a forced Odinsleep. Raseri was now on his own, but he already had a plan set. He would search for Loki's highest minions, they have the information he needs.
Foreign Fighting (Part 3)
"Loki's highest cronies are bound to be around here somewhere", the mighty son of Thor thought to himself as he wandered around a mysterious yet dense forest. Countless different sounds spawned from the wilderness. Some of them were familiar, while other sounds were simply unearthly to Raseri's ears. Suddenly, the valiant and fierce fighter heard a strange rustling sound coming from the nearby bushes. The Son of Thunder was more than alert. His facial expression was stern and composed, he was ready for a confrontation. In a split second, the rustling noise ceased. Raseri's energy-sensing abilities detected nothing nearby, so perhaps it was his mind playing psychological tricks on him. No that couldn't be it. Raseri was far too calm and composed of a person to allow his mind to do this, he had too much control. Though he could not sense it, something was definitely stalking him. But for the moment, the Nordic Tiger ignored it. His sole focus was extracting useful information from the highest of Loki's loyal minions. "Whatever that noise was, it couldn't have been good", these thoughts were correct as Raseri will soon find out. Suddenly, without a single warning, the rustling noise made its surprising return. This time however, it was stationed in the cluster of leaves on the branches of the tall shadowy trees surrounding him. With each step he took, the rustling noise grew louder and louder. It was becoming a nuisance, even worse Raseri could not sense the presence of whatever was causing this sound. And in the blink of an eye, a muscular werewolf leaped off a tree branch as it aimed to bite Raseri's head off. Clearly this was no ordinary werewolf, it was one with a divine touch to it. Quickly turning his head, the Son of Asgard noticed the deadly werewolf lunging straight at him. He was quick to react as he ducked and quickly got a hold of the werewolf's tail. "Who are you?", Raseri asked coldly as he quickly grabbed the werewolf by the throat and rammed it against a tree. "Speak damn you!", the imposing demigod demanded. His only replies were growls and wild barks. Releasing the werewolf's throat from his unbreakable grip, Raseri focused his glare on the unholy creature. However, instead of violently attacking him, it began to flee from him, apparently aware that it stood no chance against him. Raseri quickly followed the werewolf through the dense forest as it became harder and harder to keep track of something that his energy-senses cannot detect. And though he lost track of the werewolf, his seemingly fruitless pursuit led him straight to the entrance of a colossal arena. "I guess it was just a random werewolf attack.. that forest is a death trap to the unsuspecting", his thoughts were indeed accurate. However, right now his main objective was to investigate the arena. But upon walking past the gate, there was not much to investigate as he encountered a massive giant. "Loki's going to love this", the giant said and without giving Raseri the opportunity to reply, he attempted to smash Raseri into the ground with a powerful stomp. This was a failure as Raseri quickly leaped straight forward the giant and dealt him a mighty blow that knocked the giant off his feet and onto the ground.
The giant silently stood to its full height after getting up from Raseri's devastating blow. "You dare strike Colossus!?", Colossus shouted in outrage. Raseri giving no verbal response as he simply stared at the menacing giant with a cold and stern glare. "Speak you fool! Are you not capable of speech!! Your silence only proves your stupidity!", unfortunately Colossus' verbal insults did not even faze the Ultimate Fighting God who remained silent in defiance. "Gaah! Enough of this! You will perish!", and without a second to spare, Colossus swung for a punch with his enormous fist. Evading the punch, Raseri did not expect what followed. Another arm quickly grew from Colossus' chest as it got a hold of the courageous hero. Holding Raseri with his third hand, Colossus began to squeeze him with his massive strength. The Nordic Tiger struggled to break free from the boisterous giant's mighty grip. Not wanting to simply rely on his physical power, Raseri began to formulate specific battle strategies for his exact situation. "Are you this weak? Is this as tight as your mediocre grip gets?", Raseri said disrespectfully as he commented on Colossus' grip. Though he was clearly at a disadvantage, Raseri simply used these words for psychological warfare. The calm and collected demigod calmly waited for Colossus to attempt to tighten his grip which would require him to temporarily loosen his grip for at least a second. "What?! Insolent insect! You will pay for insults!", the brutish giant shouted. "You will see how unbearable my grip will get! HAHAHA!", Colossus laughed as Raseri replied with yet another insult. "So far your breath has proven to be more unbearable than your grip", he said with a calm smirk, obviously trying to provoke Colossus into acting quickly. "Enough!", the giant shouted in annoyance as he temporarily loosened his grip as he prepared to tighten it. However, at the very moment that he had loosened his grip, Raseri did not hesitate to take the opportunity to strike. Thunder Jr. quickly delivered two lightning-fast jabs on the giant's palm, but that the attack wasn't that simple. Raseri had actually struck two pressures points in Colossus' palms that will soon cause his hands to violently erupt in a bloody mess. "Now you will... what... gaaaaah!", Colossus screamed in agony as his hands exploded and Raseri was free from his vice-like grip. And before Colossus could attack once again, Raseri took the opportunity to attack him while his opponent was still screaming in pain. As he dashed straight at Colossus, Raseri executed a Jump Spin Hook Kick aimed at Colossus' forehead. Upon delivering the powerful kick, Raseri had kicked a special pressure point on Colossus' forehead that instantly paralyzed the giant's nervous system. With his nervous system paralyzed, Colossus could still manage to talk as Raseri struck the pressure point in a specific manner. "You're going to tell me what I want to hear, unless you prefer death", Raseri threatened. "How do I get to Hel?", he asked. After a brief moment of rebelliousness, Colossus gave in, "Fine.. the entrance to Hel is under this very arena. There you will find a portal that will take you to Hel", the behemoth explained. His words were true, and Raseri could tell. No longer having any use for Colossus, Raseri quickly leaped towards the giant and delivered a kinetic energy-charged uppercut elbow that cut Colossus in half and caused him to explode by overloading his body with kinetic energy. "Now it is time to find Loki".
Foreign Fighting (Part 4)
Walking away from the violent explosion in unearthly calmness, Raseri suddenly stopped as he stood in the middle of the entire arena. The unparalleled fighter was feeling something beneath his feet. A nexus of mystical and dark energies. This was undoubtedly the entrance to Hel underneath the ground he stood upon. Knowing fully well what was beneath him, Raseri precisely struck the ground with a powerful but quick punch. Seconds went by and it seemed as though he had done nothing but weakly strike the ground. It would have been truly embarrassing if that was the case, fortunately the Son of Thunder is the absolute fighter master. And suddenly, in a split second, the ground began to quake violently as the countless little pebbles on the arena floor began to bounce off intensely. And soon, without a single visible warning, a massive fissure cracked open on the ground. Several meters wide and long, it was more than large enough for the mighty demigod to fit into. "So I'm finally going to find Loki. Lets how powerful the God of Lies really is", these thoughts revolved around Raseri's mind as he jumped into the fissure and fell straight into a mysterious magical portal that instantly transported him to Hel (or Helheim). As soon as he felt his feet make contact with solid ground, the valiant warrior knew that he had reached his destination. Glancing around his current location, Raseri found himself in a dark gloomy realm. One that was devoid of cheerfulness, quite depressing and despondent this realm was. It was a silent environment aside from the eerie moans of grief that echoed in the mysterious realm's background. The moans were disembodied as there was no physical source that could be seen, but Raseri could feel the presence of the source, rather far though. "So this is where the dead go. This place is kind of depressing", the ferocious fighter murmured as he glanced around Hel. He was soon interrupted by an unknown stranger wearing an iron helmet. This mysterious warrior was about Raseri's height and had a similar physique, clearly he was some type of god-like being. "I am Nur", the mysterious stranger announced in evident arrogance. "Who gives a sh*t", Raseri replied in a cold and disrespectful tone, fully aware that this man was one of evil, his energy-signature wreaked of malice and sadism. "Bad manners. Didn't Thor teach you any manners?", Nur asked in a mocking tone, only for Raseri to respond with a simple cold stare. With a chuckle, Nur continued, "Typical... well I believe that a victim must know the name of their killer. Its the least I can do before I kill you. Loki will reward me greatly for your death", Nur explained, his voice full of overconfidence. "Arrogant aren't we? Well then, lets put your words to the test. Lets see if you can kill me", Raseri replied in usual calmness and indifference as he menacingly cracked his knuckles and took a battle stance. "You won't be so calm when you're dying", Nur said just above a whisper as he dashed over to Raseri, ready to strike. Waiting for his opponent to make the first move, Raseri remained in a defensive position. As Nur went for a jab with a side stance, the amount of power in Nur's jab could be felt by Raseri, he could shatter an entire mountain with that much power. The Nordic Tiger however, managed to parry the jab and followed by generating a brief but powerful Tilstand av Brann explosion that knocked a surprised Nur off his feet and into the ground. "You overestimate yourself Nur", Raseri said.
Raseri's words were perhaps true, Nur did overestimate his abilities most of the time. Though he was surprised, he could do much better. Quickly getting to his feet, Nur commented on Raseri's counter. "I can't say I'm not impressed, but that was child's play. You'll be killed so quick that you won't have enough time to be impressed with this!", Nur shouted as he charged straight at Raseri. The courageous demigod's sadistic opponent was moving at impossible speeds, even by Raseri's terms. Unleashing a flurry of vicious punches and kicks, Nur appeared to be a raw fighter. Most of Nur's attacks were successful in hitting Raseri as he pummeled the son of Thor, however, the master hand to hand combatant managed to parry the last few punches and kicks as he was knocked meters away by the last kick. As he stood to his full height, Raseri began to feel an odd stinging sensation on his right shoulder as it suddenly erupted in a bloody mess. Gripping his shoulder in pain, Raseri soon smirked much to Nur's surprise. "What you like the pain?", a confused Nur asked. "No", the Nordic Tiger replied. "Its just that I haven't fought someone who can actually make me try in a long time. This is good", Raseri said as he stopped gripping his shoulder and soon performed a roundhouse kick, a butterfly kick, a sidekick, and a jump spin hook kick. But they all struck mid air, much to Nur's confusion. Suddenly, Hel's resident was bombarded by invisible slashes of powerful kinetic energy that nearly cut through him. Struggling with pain, Nur somehow managed to use his mysterious powers to completely freeze Raseri in a colossal mystical ice block he created with his ice breath. Running straight towards the frozen Raseri, Nur broke the ice block with a massive uppercut followed by a devastating palm strike on Raseri's gut. Gushing out blood as he fell to the ground, Raseri had indeed found a worthy opponent. Mere seconds later, the merciless fighter got to his feet and engaged Nur in close combat as he threw several flawless punches that bombarded his masked opponent. "Hyah!", Raseri shouted as he delivered the final punch on Nur's chest, and suddenly, in the blink of an eye, Nur's chest burst open as it began to violently spurt blood. The Son of Thunder however, was not done. He quickly sent Nur flying into the air with a series of deadly kicks that severed some of his blood vessels by striking them precisely. "Gaaaaah!", Nur screamed in pain and agony. However his pain soon disappeared as rage took over, "Die!", he shouted as he shot out numerous mystical energy bolts from his mouth while he healed from his sustained wounds. Though he managed to dodge some of them, Raseri was ultimately hit by the mystical energy bolts and it was obvious from his multiple burn wounds. Out of nowhere, Nur appeared behind Raseri and struck his arms with countless needle-like strikes that temporarily disabled the nerves on his arms rendering him unable to use them temporarily useless. As he began to ruthlessly assault Raseri with brutal elbows, punches etc. the mighty demigod knew that without his arms he had lost a serious form of defense and offense and even though he could manage to Nur for a little longer using only his legs due to his unparalleled skills, he would soon fall in defeat against an opponent with this level of power and skill. There was only one thing he could do. It was risky, but it would work. "Vingar av Lys!", the Nordic Tiger shouted as his body was suddenly charged by a mysterious lightning. Raseri's body was soon surrounded by white sparks of lightning, his skin now had a blue tint and his eyes were devoid of pupils and irises. Using a kicking version of his "Uendelig Masse Kave", the mighty demigod bombarded Nur with a series of beautiful yet vicious light-speed kicks, "Aiyah!", Raseri shouted as he delivered the last kick. "What the.. graaaaaahh!", Nur screamed in unbearable pain as the final kick knocked him onto the ground, his body's nervous system completely disabled. And in a matter of seconds, Nur's body split into separate pieces in a bloody eruption as the kicks had struck every single one of his pressure points, causing unspeakable damage. Nur was yet another opponent who died a gory death at the hands of Raseri, and the Son of Asgard was aiming to add Loki to his body count. The Vingar av Lys aura disappeared and Raseri returned to his normal state as he began to heal from his injuries. But his victory was short lived as a tall and menacing figure faded into view. It was Loki. The final battle is now at hand.
Foreign Fighting (Part 5)
The God of Lies has finally shown himself. This was indeed an intense moment. Both powerful men fearlessly glared at each other in cold silence. This situation emitted an almost suffocating intensity that would force ordinary people into unconsciousness. It was almost like an invisible pressure generated by a mysterious energy. However, the silence was soon broken by Loki who burst into uncontrollable laughter. "This is interesting hehehe... so Thor's boy has come to free Asgard from the tyranny of the terrible Loki", said the mischievous god in a mocking tone. "You gods are pretty arrogant you know..", the Son of Asgard replied in a cold and stoic tone. Cracking his knuckles in his trademark menacing manner, Raseri continued to speak without a single hint of fear in his eyes, "But I doubt your arrogance will be so evident when you take on a real fighter", warned the stone-faced. An amused Loki simply continued to break into comical bursts of laughter, but soon his demeanor took a drastic change. The Lord of Lies' amusement had ceased, his face now held a dead-serious facial expression. The Nordic Tiger however, remained completely unfazed, his expression was a calm and stoic one. "I'm not an idiot Raseri.. its not just anyone that can come in and utterly destroy my top men.. you're clearly a skilled fighter. Even better than your own father, the best I've ever seen. Dare I say it? You are the Ultimate Fighting God, it is your destined title. But you'll never fulfill that destiny because.. I'll kill YOU!!", Loki shouted as he viciously charged straight at the mighty demigod who countered by generating a powerful burst of pure kinetic energy that was meant to slow down and disorient Loki, it was successful, and Raseri followed by charging his body with Tilstand av Brann. Lunging straight at Loki, the Son of Thunder ferociously projected a colossal stream of mystical fire that completely engulfed Loki in the intense supernatural flames. As Loki was enveloped in flames of the Sun's temperature, he was silent, but was not being harmed. "Is this it? Is the best Thor could produce!?", Loki shouted as he completely dispelled the flames around him with an invisible wave of energy. "Hmm he's stronger than I thought", Raseri thought as he continued to project the flames, but soon stopped once he realized his efforts were useless. And the moment that the unparalleled fighter stopped projecting the intense flames, Loki viciously struck him on the gut with a powerful blast of telekinetic energy. Loki's assault did not stop there, he used his telekinetic powers to throw several gigantic rocks in Raseri's direction. The King quickly shattered every single rock that came his way with earth-shattering punches and swift kicks. Using his unspeakable speed, Raseri suddenly appeared behind Loki and struck a specific pressure point on the god's spine with a single jab. "What the.. what did you do?", Loki asked in confusion as Raseri's had struck a pressure that softens the body of an opponent. With his body now impossibly softened, Loki attempted to punch Raseri across the face, only to realize that with his body softened, he could no longer deliver hard strikes. "Your body is now softened, your hits won't affect me", Raseri said as he was not even fazed by his opponent's attempted attack. Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, the Nordic Tiger mercilessly projected a massive wave of the Tilstand av Brann flames at Loki, and with his body now softened, his durability was weakened as well. Burning in the flames, Loki screamed in immense pain as he was suddenly bombarded by a series of ruthless punches from Raseri that delivered a large amount of external damage. Despite having been temporarily bested by his own nephew, Loki was hardly trying. "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You're strong nephew! But you cannot best the God of Lies", Loki announced as he miraculously healed from his wounds and his body reverted back to normal due to his god-like healing factor.
Unleashing his true power, the sadistic Loki dashed over to Raseri and pummeled the courageous fighter with a series of raw punches and though the Nordic Tiger managed to block a few of the punches, he was ultimately knocked down by them. "No amount of skill can overcome my power!", the Lord of Lies boasted as he continued to unleash flurries of heavy punches and kicks that sent Raseri flying through countless mountainous structures in Hel. Managing to stay on his feet, Raseri could feel that Loki's power was one that he could not match with his own, but he could even the battle out with his unimaginable hand to hand combat mastery. However, before he could do anything else, Loki suddenly appeared before the fearless demigod and pile-drove ferocious Raseri into the ground headfirst with a ruthless pile-driver. But the God of Lies did not stop his brutal onslaught there, he followed this attack with a vast array of magical energy bolts that he shot at Raseri's floored body. Unable to evade the attacks due to their vastly superior speed, Raseri was bombarded by the powerful magical energy bolts as they violently exploded upon contact with his body. Leaping a few meters backwards, Loki decided to watch his powerful nephew struggle to get to his feet. Rising from the dust, Raseri was visibly injured. He had several burn wounds on his body and bruises on his torso, as well as cuts of blood on his face. "He's different from his cronies. They all at least had some level of skill. But Loki has no skill in combat. He's just power", these thoughts swam in the ocean of the Nordic Tiger's mind as he stood to his full height. Glaring at Loki, Raseri chuckled a bit despite the pain he was feeling, "You're not as strong as you think", Raseri mocked with a smirk on his face. Obviously this was a tactic to provoke Loki into attacking him. An egotistical and power-hungry maniac like Loki would not stand for this and was quick to charge straight at Raseri. The Ultimate Fighting God managed to lock Loki in a clinch as he tested his evil uncle's physical strength. Clearly, Loki was much stronger than Raseri in terms of physical strength, well at least his strength was superior to the Son of Asgard's base strength. Though he managed to hold his own for a while against Loki, he was beginning to lose against the God of Lies' massive strength, but this was part of the plan. Raseri wouldn't be able to successfully execute his plan as Loki is fast enough to escape what he has in store for him, which prompted the menacing demigod to distract his malicious uncle. "You're a bastard Loki.. ggnnh.. this is how you repay Odin? *Pant* After he took you in?", Raseri asked, questioning Loki's morality. "I'm the God of Mischief and Lies, what do you expect nephew?", Loki replied with a smug smirk spread across his arrogant expression. "I expect you to be a good son to your father", Raseri answered coldly as Loki was temporarily distracted, thinking of what to say. Using this opportunity to his advantage, Raseri while still locked in a clench, used his thumbs to press against specific pressure points on Loki's biceps, completely disabling the god's arms. Now with his arms rendered useless, Loki was at a massive physical disadvantage. Suddenly, in a heartbeat, Raseri delivered a deadly crescent kick on the right side of Loki's head, hitting a pressure point that contracted Loki's muscles into snapping his spine. "GNAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!... Damn it!", Loki shrieked in unbearable pain. However, before he collapse on the floor, Raseri delivered a palm strike on Loki's shoulder, striking another pressure point that caused arms and lungs to violently erupt in a bloody mess. Collapsing on the floor, Loki began to scream in constant pain, much to Raseri's annoyance who lightly kicked his knee, striking a pressure point that will cause extreme and intense pain to Loki every time the Lord of Lies screams. Due to his countless screaming, his level of pain increased exponentially. However, before Raseri could deliver the final blow, Loki spoke, "You think is over boy? *Cough* No.. this has only begun. I'm not done yet. Let me show you my full power", so apparently Loki was not even using his full power. But perhaps the Nordic Tiger was not using his. This will indeed be a memorable battle that will permanently scar the realm Hel.
Foreign Fighting (Part 6)
It seemed as though mighty Raseri had defeated his nefarious uncle Loki. The God of Lies was on the ground, his body violently dismantled by his ferocious nephew's unforgivably merciless fighting style. Simply by laying ones eyes upon Loki, it would only be natural to assume that the divine trickster was in no condition to continue fighting let alone win the battle. But appearances can indeed be deceiving, and it is a pleasure of Loki to deceive others. Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, the Lord of Lies' body was spontaneously surrounded by an outward flailing aura of mysterious godly energy. The aura was healing Loki's graphic injuries. "He's healing!", Raseri thought, surprised at the rate Loki was healing at. And in a matter of seconds, Loki was absolutely fine, almost as if he was never in battle. Standing to his full height, the mischievous god laughed maniacally as the aura began to violently radiate from his body, causing rocks to spring into every direction. "Now SUFFER!!", the Asgardian villain shouted as he lunged straight at Raseri. He was even faster than before. Delivering a brutal knee right on Raseri's gut, Loki had sent the demigod flying backwards. Upon falling on the ground, Raseri stood up as he quickly vomited a good deal of blood. "Damn.. he got stronger. But I will not lose", however, as he attempted to walk towards his evil uncle, Raseri found that he was unable to move his body. He was paralyzed! But how? "What's the matter nephew?! Can't move?!! Well thats because I tampered with your body using invisible shocks of godly energy. That knee wasn't just an ordinary strike you know!", Loki announced, he was clearly proud of his accomplishment. Notorious Loki quickly dashed over to Raseri and began to mercilessly pummel his nephew with an incalculable number of unrestrained punches, elbows etc. At this very moment, Raseri was more like a punching bag than an actual fighter. Blood was spilling all over the place as Loki just unleashed a vicious onslaught. Energy blasts, punches, and much more. Raseri was being tortured. Soon, Loki pulled out a massive sword and began to make small but painful cuts on the Nordic Tiger's skin. "HAHAHAHAHAAHAHA!! This is so FUN!", Loki shouted as he proceeded to violently pierce his sword through Raseri's chest, causing the powerful demigod to gush out blood. Loki was indeed a very powerful opponent. And with a powerful kick, the God of Lies sent Raseri flying through several mountains in the dark pits of Hel. Unable to move his body, Raseri couldn't even stand up as Loki was quick to appear beside him. Grabbing his nephew's foot, Loki hurled him into the sky and shot an enormous energy ball at Raseri that quickly exploded upon contact with the ruthless demigod. Seconds later, Raseri's broken body was lying on the ground as Loki walked towards it. Standing tall over his nephew, Loki did not hesitate to insult Raseri, Thor and Odin. "You see how pathetic you are?! You are just like your father and grandfather! You are all pathetic!! Trash!! You half-blood piece of sh*t! You're worth NOTHING!", Loki mocked as he disrespectfully kicked Raseri's paralyzed body. "Impure blood! Unworthy to set foot on Asgard", Loki yelled as he nearly spat on Raseri. However, this was a drastic mistake on Loki's part. He had angered the Ultimate Fighting God. "Halv-Gud Raseri" was being used. His rage began to rise and so did his physical power. Raseri's appearance slowly began to change. His muscles began to swell as he forced the godly energy that Loki used out of his body.
Soon, Raseri began to rise as he broke free from Loki's paralysis. His muscles grew in size and so did he. The Son of Asgard's eyes burned with the flames with of battle and rage as his eyes became devoid of irises and pupils. The wounds and injuries that he had sustained at the hands of his sadistic uncle were miraculously healed by his growing power. Loki's continuous taunts caused Raseri to reach his boiling point. Sparks of lightning began to fade into the air as the Nordic Tiger 's rage was beyond comprehension. But for some reason, he was still capable of thinking clearly despite his immense anger. And when mighty Raseri's anger rises, so does his great physical power. Suddenly, in a heartbeat, Loki noticed the unbelievable mistake he had committed. "W-what?!", the God of Lies thought as he felt Raseri's power grow off the charts. With an alarmed facial expression, Loki began to slowly back away from Raseri who stood to his full height. Cracking his knuckles in a menacing manner, the ferocious fighter spoke to his malicious uncle. Raseri's rage was the silent type that one could see through his intense eyes and facial expression. "I can hardly believe that we are related. I'm going to kill you Loki. I will make no mistake. From the very beginning, I never considered sparing you", Raseri said. The unparalleled hand to hand combat master continued, "Now you will feel the wrath of the Ultimate Fighting God", Raseri said in a cold and serious tone. And in a split second, he appeared behind Loki and quickly overpowered his uncle with his superior physical strength. Enhancing his strikes with kinetic energy, Raseri literally punched a hole through Loki's gut and violently tore his right arm completely off his body. The Son of Thunder followed his attacks with a stabbing strike on a mysterious pressure point on Loki's body that caused the trickster god's heart to explode in a violent and gory fashion, causing Loki to vomit a massive amount of blood. However, he did not die, primarily due to his immortality, but it severely injured him. Raseri's final strike was a precise side kick on Loki's chest. With the flawless side kick, The King had struck one of the most difficult pressure points to hit. This pressure point causes instant destruction upon movement. "Remember my name", Raseri said in a cold stoic tone and manner. And as he tried to blink, Loki violently exploded in a bloody mess. Nothing except his blood was left. The God of Lies was killed by his own nephew who has singlehandedly freed Asgard from Loki's tyranny. And as he began to calm down, Raseri reverted back to his normal state. "He wasn't so tough", the fearless fighter uttered as he began to search for the dimensional portal that transported him to his current location (Hel). Walking a few meters away from the battlefield, the Nordic Tiger spotted the mysterious portal a couple of meters above his head. Leaping into the portal, Raseri had left the gloomy and depressing realm of the dead and returned to the colossal arena in Asgard. As he left the arena, Raseri made his return to the main city of Asgard where Odin's castle is located. Soon however, a large number of Asgardians emerged from hiding as they thanked Raseri for his efforts, apparently aware of the demigod's identity. "Impressive grandson. Though I have not yet completed my Odinsleep, I am now capable of remaining conscious for at least a day or two. Your father will return in a few hours. Please come to my castle so that we may both reward you", the All Father announced to Raseri in a telepathic message. "Alright, I'm coming", Raseri replied as he was satisfied with the amount of battles he fought.
Foreign Fighting (Part 7, Final Part)
Walking into the upper classes of Asgard, the battle-drenched Raseri found himself standing before a humongous gate that served as the entrance to no doubt the most gigantic castle he has ever set his eyes upon. "There's no doubt this Odin's castle", he thought as the gates were suddenly opened by an unknown invisible force. Showing no fear, the courageous demigod walked past the gates and found himself walking on a mysterious path that lead him into the castle itself. Upon setting foot in the colossal castle, Raseri felt a powerful divine aura present somewhere in the endless castle. "What the hell is that feeling? Could it be Odin's power replenishing itself?", uttered the Nordic Tiger in mild curiosity. However, before he could move any further or make any more assumptions, an awesomely radiant outward flailing ball of divine energy appear before him. Raseri's eyes were strongly focused on the energy ball, it was pure white in color, and far too bright to be present before any mortal eye. And suddenly, in the blink of an eye, the ball exploded in a bright and nonviolent flash of blinding light that covered the entire area in its magnificent radiance. And once the light began to grow dimmer, mighty Raseri was surprised to find a large number of high Asgardian gods surrounding the room, including his father the legendary Thunder God Thor. With a surprised facial expression, Raseri was on the verge of asking a question until Thor spoke to him, gladly answering his noble son's unspoken questions in one go. "I'm truly proud of you son. Defeating Loki and his forces was a task that not many can accomplish on their own. You did it singlehandedly. You clearly have the will of a fighter. Now I know you have questions to ask but I will answer them all. I'm sure you're wondering what just happened. Well you just witnessed us return to Odin's grand castle through dimensional traveling", Thor said as he twirled his indestructible hammer around in a circular motion with a cheerful smile on display. The hammer-wielding god continued, "And these men are the brave gods of Asgard that aided me in my recent quest. Now I'm sure father would like to reward you for your efforts my son. Come let us go to him", Thor said, and without giving Raseri the opportunity to reply, he teleported himself and his ferocious son to Odin's resting room. The moment Raseri stood beside Odin, he felt the All-Father's immeasurable power, even when it was still being replenished. "I'm sure Odin could've defeated Loki on his own. Maybe he wanted to test my skills. Who knows...", Raseri thought to himself as he calmly looked at the resting skyfather. Soon Odin was awakened by the presence of his son and grandson. With a jolly smile, Odin addressed both of them, "Ah Thor, you have returned! Good, good", he said. But soon his attention shifted from Thor to Raseri. "I'm very proud of you today Raseri. Not many could do what you have just done. I commend your preference for skill over your monstrous physical power. But enough of that. You should be rewarded grandson!", he said with a joyous laugh. "How about I give you full godhood. Your power will be increased tenfold! And you will have a place here in Asgard, a throne and much more!", Odin offered. Unfortunately, Raseri was not going to accept this offer.
Without even two seconds of consideration, Raseri had his answer ready. "Thanks for the offer Odin but I'm afraid I've got to reject it. I don't need more power or full godhood. I don't want full godhood. I value my human half, maybe even more than my god half. And as for the power? You said it yourself didn't you? I prefer skill over power. I'll improve myself by creating greater combat arts and improving the ones I have already developed. All I want right now is to return to Norway where my home is", he said without the slightest bit of visible hesitation. Odin was in fact delighted to hear Raseri's answer and quickly granted his wish to return home. "As you wish grandson. But know that you are always welcome here", Odin said as he happily transported Raseri back to Norway via magical teleportation. Upon returning to his home, Raseri's main priority was to head over to his home gym where he works out and focuses on his fighting styles. Walking towards the deepest layer of his large house, Raseri walked into his colossal underground gym filled with superhuman equipment and much more. However, instead of lifting weights or hitting punching bags, the Son of Asgard meditated. Entering a deep spiritual state with great mental clarity, Raseri's eyes were opened to an entirely new world that brought him much greater insight on the world of martial arts. After spending nearly twenty four hours in this meditative state, Raseri had finally ended his meditating session with a new view on martial arts. He now had the fruits to create a new unique martial art that is both a deadly art of combat and an extraordinary healing art. The meditation has given The King the knowledge of "Life Energy". "Its time to perfect this art", Raseri uttered as he spent countless months training, developing, perfecting and mastering this new style of combat. Eventually, the result was a very powerful fluid and swift internal gentle fist style with extraordinary techniques. Having perfected the new deadly martial art he had developed, Raseri was ready to give it a name. "Hmm now what should I name it?", he asked himself in deep thought. Soon after a good period of thinking and discarding funny names, Raseri had found a suitable name. Due to the style's manipulation of "Life Energy or Life Force", Raseri had indeed found the perfect name for his new martial art. "I've got it! I'll name it 'The Fist of Life'. Yeah that fits", the Nordic Tiger told himself with a satisfied smile. And watching from Asgard was none other than Odin who couldn't even begin to grasp the basics of Raseri's newly developed fighting art. "That boy is indeed a fighting genius. When he feels like he wants to be part of Asgard's hierarchy then he will surely be the God of Fighting", those thoughts rested in the All-Father's mind as he watched over his promising young grandson. With a new deadly style in his arsenal, not only has Raseri already mastered every fighting art to ever exist, but he has developed three of his own which are no doubt the three deadliest fighting styles that will ever grace a battlefield. This new art holds new fascinating secrets that the powerful demigod will hold dear to his heart and soul. Truly Raseri is the Ultimate Fighting God. Fresh out of his unique gym, Muscles was soon approached by a mysterious alien figure that told him of a galactic fighting tournament being held on another planet and that he was recruiting powerful and skilled fighters from Earth to join the tournament. Taking this unique opportunity, Raseri accepted the offer and was soon transported to an enormous space ship along with other combatants that would take them to the tournament.
Earth's Champion (Part 1)
As he boarded a rather futuristic spaceship, mighty Raseri was quick to spot the numerous other human and alien fighters on the space-travelling vehicle. "Follow me sir", said a squeaky male voice. Searching for the source of these words, the Nordic Tiger looked at his left and right only to find nothing. Soon however, he felt a light tug on his arm which caused him to lower his vision. Looking down, Raseri spotted a very short alien being wearing some white robes and an advanced futuristic helmet concealing his face. "Oh sorry, I didn't see you there", apologized the ferocious fighter. "There's no need for apologies. Just follow me", the short stout alien replied in an understanding tone. "My name is Al-Gore. What is yours?", intellectual Al-Gore asked the menacingly tall and huge demigod as he lead Raseri to a holographic computer screen. "My name's Raseri. So why must I follow you?", he asked in his usual calm and composed tone. "To sign up for the tournament of course. You'll be facing the universe's strongest and most skilled fighters to win the championship belt. If you win you will be known as the greatest fighter in the universe. You do want to be the UUF Champion right?", Al-Gore asked. "Well sure. Any chance to fight strong fighters is good. Oh but one thing. What does UUF stand for?", Raseri asked, he was curious. "Only Ultimate Universal Fighting of course", Al-Gore answered. "Yeah of course", Raseri replied in a sarcastic tone while rolling his eyes. "Now approach the holographic screen and say your name and give it your genetic code by touching the screen, it will take some DNA from your finger. Don't worry, it won't hurt", Al-Gore explained. Before doing so, Raseri looked at Al-Gore with a suspicious face only for Al-Gore to respond with enthusiastic nods. With a shrug of his shoulders, Raseri told the holographic screen his name and calmly touched it with his index finger. Once this was done, Al-Gore seemed pleased as he continued to speak, "Good! Now we can make sure that you will still be able to participate if something happens to your name's record here. We'll be able to know by matching your DNA. Now then, you can go and mingle with the other fighters. There's a bar somewhere in the ship hehe", Al-Gore said in a comical manner. Walking around the ship, Raseri managed to find the bar and took a seat as a hovering machine brought him an unknown alien beverage. Carefully observing it, Raseri decided to pass off the drink as he returned to the area where all the other fighters were at. Meeting a couple of them, Raseri had made some friends and a few acquaintances. Soon however, the time for chitchat was over as the spaceship had arrived at its destination. Landing on a colossal floating asteroid with a breathable and blue atmosphere, similar to Earth's. However, the most prominent feature was the humongous fighting arena where fighters are free to fight with immense space and with a ridiculously large crowd watching. As all the fighters boarded off the ship and walked into a vast of numerous infrastructures where they would wait and train as they heard the names of the first opponents of the first round, none other than Raseri and a human-resembling alien named Jax. Walking into the arena, Raseri and Jax stood before an enormous crowd as they stared each other down. Cracking his knuckles in a menacing manner, Raseri listened as Al-Gore explained the rules of the tournament through an announcement across the entire arena. "Alright fighters! Here are the rules. First of all, no killing. You can beat your opponent to a near-death state but you can absolutely not kill them. Secondly, if you are knocked off the arena then you lose due to being out of bounds. No weapons are allowed. Do not attack the crowd. And the most important part, this is still the first round of the tournament. There are three. First round wins give you points, and the losers are not eliminated. The loser will have a chance to win a point by defeating his opponent in a second match in the first round, if so then a third match will be held to determine the winner. So you only need two wins to pass into the second round. The second round is a knockout stage where the loser is eliminated from the tournament after losing one match. And once only ten fighters are left, the final stage which is the third round will be held. Eventually boiling down to two fighters. Those are the rules, now FIGHT!", and once the announcement was over, Raseri's match against Jax began as the bell rang.
Taking a "Kinetiske Stil" battle stance, Raseri would take no mercy on Jax as he was going to fight with immense physical force and ferocity. And though he wasn't allowed to kill his opponent, Raseri would not hesitate to beat him into a coma. Noticing the unknown stance of Raseri's unique fighting style, Jax was quick to criticize it. "Huh?! That must be a stupid fake style you created. Well I'm going to put it to shame with my unbeatable skills", the flamboyant Jax said as he took a rather alien fighting stance and quickly disappeared in the blink of an eye. The Nordic Tiger's opponent was moving at incredible speeds, actually impossible speeds to be more accurate. Maintaining his composure, the Son of Thunder closed his eyes and patiently waited for the right moment to strike. The crowd was in awe at Jax's level of speed. Circling at incalculable speeds, Jax was quick to create a massive wind vortex that enveloped valiant Raseri. The powerful winds attempted to carry the ferocious Nordic Tiger off the arena, however, using his incredible power, Raseri flexed his muscles and forced himself to resist the sheer force of Jax's violent winds. "HAHAHAHAHAHA! You're too slooooooooowwww!", Jax mocked as he continued to run circles around the mighty son of Thor. "Hmph.. you're just a fool", Raseri uttered in a calm yet bold tone. His words were quick to annoy Jax who did not hesitate to show his displeasure with Raseri's comments. "Fool?!... FOOL!? I think you're the fool! I'm running around circles someone who can't even move! Oh gosh I wonder who looks like the fool here!", Jax continued his mocking ways only for Raseri to respond with cold silence. Suddenly, in a heartbeat, the unparalleled fighting demigod performed a beautiful but powerful butterfly kick in midair, but for what exactly? With the kick, Raseri had released a circling slash of invisible kinetic energy that expanded as it got further away from Raseri. Quickly cutting Jax on the heel, the slash faded away as the overconfident alien lost his balance from the great pain etc. and eventually tripped on his foot at incredible speeds as he fell straight on the arena surface face-first. "Ah sh*t!", Jax shouted in irritation and pain from the powerful impact with the arena. "You're going to pay for that you slow bastard!", Jax yelled as he pointed at Raseri and within an instant, dashed over to the Ultimate Fighting God. Moving at again impossible speeds, Jax began to zigzag around the fighting arena hoping to confuse Raseri with his fast movements that could not be seen by the naked eye. However, Raseri was not at a disadvantage. Quickly breaking the zigzags, Jax charged straight at Raseri, hoping to deliver an earth-shattering double-fisted punch. Fortunately, due to his energy-sensing abilities, Raseri did not need to see Jax to know that his arrogant opponent was heading towards his direction. And with his own level of speed, the Nordic Tiger was very capable of reacting to Jax's fast attack. Once Jax was a mere inches away from Raseri, the ferocious savior of Asgard swung for an explosive kinetic energy-enhanced punch on Jax's cheek. The punch was filled with so much power and intensity that it instantly knocked Jax unconscious upon impact. Kinetiske Stil is useful against speedsters actually. Soon, a referee got in the arena to check on Jax's current condition. The referee quickly announced that the arrogant fighter was knocked out cold by Raseri's devastating strike. "Who's slow now", Raseri uttered with a smirk as he left the arena after being declared the winner of the first match. Heading over to the vast complex where all the other fighters were located, Raseri was greeted with great praise and congratulations by many of the fighters. Welcoming their compliments, Raseri noticed that they had watched the fight through a colossal hovering monitor in the complex that allowed the fighters to watch matches while they rest after competing in a match. Soon taking a seat with the other fighters, Raseri was quickly greeted by a man of a similar physique who introduced himself as Yan, another alien being with a flawless human appearance. "Hey there. I'm Yan. I just watched your match. That was impressive. What do you call that style you used?", Yan asked with a friendly smile. Returning Yan's friendliness, Raseri replied, "Thanks. I'm Raseri. Well I call it Kinetiske Stil", the Nordic Tiger said as he gave Yan a firm handshake. "Kinetiske Stil huh? Seems like a powerful style man", Yan said. But soon the conversation was cut off as Yan's match was announced. Having to go to the arena to fight, Yan was quick to tell Raseri that he hopes they encounter each other in the tournament before he left for the arena. "That was Yan. He's one of the best fighters ever. If he thinks you're good, then you might just be that rival he's been looking for all these years. You know, since he never admits anyone is good. He usually criticizes", one of the fighters told Raseri. These words brought a confident smile on Raseri's face. "Then I hope I get to fight him in the tournament", the Ultimate Fighting God had found someone that was perhaps a worthy potential opponent.
Earth's Champion (Part 2)
Watching Yan's battle from the colossal holographic screen in the vast complex, Raseri was impressed with his new acquaintance's hand to hand combat prowess. But of course, the ferocious Nordic Tiger was by all means not surprised by what he has just witnessed. He was after all, participating in a universal fighting tournament. It was only natural that he would encounter many skilled fighters and perhaps some that could surprise him in battle. As all of the competitors watched Yan's one-sided battle, Raseri took notice of a very important detail. Yan's mastered self-styled fighting style was a unique one with no form or stance. It was a free art of hand to hand combat. Clearly this provided Yan with an unbelievable offensive advantage in battle, however to be able to fight with this odd style, Yan was forced to completely sacrifice defense and therefore was open to powerful attacks. "His style is deadly, but there is a major flaw that comes with it. I just wonder if he's already noticed it", mighty Raseri thought with a pensive facial expression on display. Yan's match however, was soon over as the famous hand to hand combatant completely dominated his opponent with his speed and agility. Upon returning to the complex, Raseri congratulated Yan on his victory, "Congratulations Yan. Your style is very impressive", the powerful demigod commented. With a charismatic smile, Yan replied, "Why thank you Raseri. My style is free from restriction. I have no need for defenses due to my unmatchable agility and speed. I can't be touched in the battlefield", Yan said, his voice filled confidence, possibly even a hint of arrogance. Well perhaps one would have the right to boast if they had never been touched in battle by an opponent, but Yan has never faced Raseri. "Never been touched huh? We'll see how you'll keep that up if you face me", Mr. Muscles thought as he and Yan watched the matches of the other competitors. Soon however, the time had come for Raseri's second match of the first round. His final match against the loudmouth Jax. "Hey good luck out there. Jax is a tricky one. No doubt he studied the tapes of your previous fight. He might have some tricks up his sleeve", Yan warned. With a confident nod, Raseri left the complex and made his way to the tournament arena. Once again standing face to face with Jax, Raseri did not hesitate to taunt his opponent, "Ready for another knockout?", he said while cracking his knuckles in a menacing manner. "You think its gonna be that easy again!? Just wait and see! I got a bag full of tricks hehehe", Jax said, his arrogance brimming. "Tricks are nothing against my fist", the Son of Asgard replied, taking a fighting stance. Once the bell rung, the battle had begun and Jax was quick to try and zigzag around Raseri once again. This technique did not work on the unparalleled fighter during their last match, so why was Jax using it again? "The same technique never works on me twice. And your's didn't even work on me once", Raseri said, maintaining his stance (Kinetiske Stil). "HAHAHA! We'll see about that!", Jax shouted as the wind began to wildly spin on the arena. Once again charging straight at Raseri at impossible speeds, Jax was apparently heading towards his own demise. Countering with a sidekick, Raseri was surprised to find that Jax had faded right through his deadly strike. "Its an after image fool!", Jax announced as he suddenly, in the blink of an eye, appeared behind Raseri. "Too slow HAHAHAH!", Jax said repeatedly as he danced around the arena, celebrating the success of his trick. Attempting to do the same thing again, but this time he would try to attack, Jax moved at impossible speeds, leaving behind yet another after image. However, Raseri had grown wise to this trick and quickly swung for a heavy punch as he turned around, successfully smashing his fist into Jax's face.
Managing to maintain his consciousness, Jax fell to the arena floor but quickly got up as he struggled in unbearable pain from a broken nose and shattered front teeth. "Bwaaaaaah! It HURTS!", Jax complained. "Fighting isn't for sissies so stop complaining and fight", the Ultimate Fighting God said in his usual calm but stoic tone and manner as he made a threatening hand gesture directed at none other than the flamboyant and arrogant Jax. "Screw you human! Prepare to be dazzled by my unmatched speed!", insulted the alien and in an instant, he had vanished. Popping in and out of vision, Jax was moving at even greater speeds than before. Not even the wind could keep up with his movements. "This guy's pathetic. I shouldn't even consider using The Nor Way against him", The King's thoughts were submerged in his mind as he silently and patiently waited for Jax to attack. And suddenly, without a single warning, countless sharp spears of immense air pressure were fired at Raseri from an invisible source. No doubt it was Jax. The spears were moving at such a rate that even the Son of Thunder would not be able to easily dodge them. Dodging some of them, Raseri seemingly fell victim to the rest of the spears. Soon however, it was seen that he was not affected by the air spears. Most of the clothing on his torso however, was completely cut into tiny bits, leaving his torso dressed only in a sleeveless shirt. "You have terrible aim Jax. I don't think you're used to high speed combat. And in that case, you will not be able to keep up with me", Raseri said as he quickly performed low, middle and high reverse roundhouse kicks in rapid succession. With these flawless kicks, the ferocious fighter had released several disks and slashes of kinetic energy that were not designed to cut Jax, but to hit him with immense physical force. Soon the speedster was knocked back into vision as the kinetic energy disks and slashes had knocked him off his feet, effectively slowing him down. Seizing this opportunity, the ruthless fighter Raseri quickly appeared behind a rising Jax who was confused to find that his opponent had disappeared. "Witness the power of my fists as I destroy you", Raseri whispered into Jax's ear as he quickly unleashed a vicious barrage of explosive high-speed punches that each tore off pieces of Jax's flesh and shattered his bones. "Hadadadaadada!", Raseri's masterful yet brutal flurry of heavy but incredibly fast punches continued as he quickly shattered every bone in Jax's body and proceeded to knock his opponent out cold with a final devastating strike on the face. Being declared the victor, Raseri watched Jax's unconscious body being placed on a robotic stretcher as it carried him over to the medical facilities. "What a clown", he said without remorse for his brutal finishing. This was a fighting tournament after all. Injuries such as those are expected. Successfully moving into the second round, now all Raseri needed to until the second round was to watch the remaining matches of the first round. Leaving the arena as he returned to the vast complex, he was once again congratulated by many of the other fighters, including Yan. "I see you value power quite a lot in your strikes. They were quite explosive my friend. Now I truly want to face you in the tournament", Yan said in a determined tone. Replying with a friendly smile, Raseri did not hesitate to agree with Yan's words, "Yeah. I want to fight you as well", he said. But unknown to Yan was that Raseri had two other very deadly fighting styles he has still not yet unveiled to the competitors as he plans to use them only when competition becomes difficult to handle using only "Kinetiske Stil". "In fact, lets have a little match right now", Yan said enthusiastically. "No thanks", the Nordic Tiger replied in a calm and indifferent tone. "While I do want to fight you. It will be in the tournament for everyone to see. Not here. You'll just have to wait Yan", he said with a slight smile. "Yes of course. Sorry I got a little excited. Its not everyday I get to see fighters of your caliber. I see good fighters, amazing ones. But finding an opponent that can rival my skills is truly a rare occurrence", Yan said, explaining his unbound excitement. Soon the two of them continued to watch the remaining matches of the first round, Yan waiting for his last match in the first round to be come up.
Earth's Champion (Part 3)
Many matches went by as both Raseri and Yan watched the countless battles through the humongous futuristic holographic screen in the vast complex of infrastructures. The Nordic Tiger took the opportunity to rest from his two fights and replenish the little energy he had wasted on dismantling Jax during their two matches. Yan however, was simply burning time, waiting for his final match in the second round to be announced so that he may advance to the second round of the UUF Tournament. "Good luck on your next match Yan, whenever it'll come up", the calm and collected fighter said as he gave Yan a friendly pat on the back. "Thanks friend Raseri", Yan said with a charismatic but thankful smile. "But I don't need luck", he continued, "I am the best fighter ever. I've won the UUF Championship last year. I'll do it this year as well", the overconfident warrior boasted, his voice prominently filled with arrogance and smugness. With a composed chuckle and smile, Raseri was quick to remind Yan that he was also aiming to win the tournament. "Thats great Yan but, you forget that I'm also in the tournament. And you've never faced me. And I don't intend to lose. I'm here to win", valiant Raseri said boldly, his eyes burning with confidence and endless determination. For a brief second, Yan was taken aback by the words of his potential rival, but soon he was quick to wish Raseri luck with his objective, "Well then I'll wish you good luck with that. We'll see how you'll do. I've been studying your fighting style in each of your matches. Its very powerful and impressive. But I can plan for what I can observe", Yan warned, only for the Ultimate Fighting God to reveal the he had only used one of the countless arts of hand to hand combat he has mastered. "Oh really? Thats good. Only true fighting geniuses observe other styles to spot flaws. And I commend you for your efforts. But I'm afraid I must tell you that the style I have been using so far is only one of the countless martial arts I have mastered. And it is not even the most powerful style I have developed. There are still two more than I created and mastered myself, and countless others that I've mastered", Raseri's words brought shock to Yan's thoughts. And though this meant quite a lot, Yan was confident in his free-form style, believing it as the perfect foil to every single style in the universe. Soon regaining his vaunted demeanor, Yan was quick to praise Raseri's unimaginable skill level, "You truly are the one I must face at the end of the tournament", he said with a smile, "But I don't intend to lose either" he said. "Then we'll test our skills at the end", Raseri said with a determined smile as he and Yan began to hold a good deal of respect towards each other. "Yes my friend", Yan agreed as he fist bumped Raseri as a sign of respect and their growing friendship. Soon Yan's match was announced and the former UUF Champion effortlessly defeated his opponent, ensuring his advancement to the second round. Soon however, Raseri's next match was announced. Upon stepping onto the arena, he found that his opponent was a muscular fighter from a mystical realm, specializing in illusionary techniques but was still very physically powerful. His name was Gamma. He did not utter any words, Gamma quickly unleashed his attack with great ferocity. Using his unbelievable speed and precise fighting style, Gamma was using incredibly fast knife-like strikes. His was a cruel and speedy style of combat, as it severs the flesh from an opponent's body. Quickly covering his body in any aura of kinetic energy, Raseri also attempted to block and dodge the deadly flurry of strikes.
And though the mighty demigod managed to block and dodge most of Gamma's merciless strikes, he ultimately fell victim to a few them. Fortunately, Raseri only sustained only a few deep cuts on his skin. "He's really fast", the Nordic Tiger thought as he leaped backwards and shot powerful volleys of kinetic energy waves with quick but explosive punches and kicks. The silent Gamma however, managed to dodge every single one of Raseri's kinetic energy waves as he charged straight at the Son of Thunder. But the Unparalleled Fighting Machine already had a counter in mind. Gamma was approaching, and fast. Raseri however remained still as he clenched his right fist. "This guy's no pushover. But I can't use The Nor Way or The Fist of The Life in the second round. Yan is watching. And I want to surprise him when I fight him", Raseri thought. Gamma was getting closer and closer, Raseri already knew what he was going to do. Calmly pulling back his fist, Raseri suddenly unleashed an explosively powerful jab that generated a colossal explosion of pure invisible kinetic energy. The explosive wave was speeding towards Gamma's direction at an alarming rate. The entire crowd was captured in a moment of awe as a great battle ensued. The silent and elusive Gamma had however managed to protect himself from sustaining too much damage by erecting a powerful spherical barrier around himself. Quickly appearing beside Raseri, Gamma fell victim to a ruthless kinetic-energy enhanced roundhouse kick that struck him across the jaw, sending him flying across the arena. The Nordic Tiger's fierce assault did not stop there, he took advantage of his opponent's current condition and leaped into the air as he performed an explosive flying back kick that generated a colossal ball of kinetic energy that quickly exploded into thousands of tiny slashes that could cut through nearly any solid material. Though Gamma managed to dodge most of the slashes, he eventually had his right arm completely cut off. "Nnhhhaa", the mystical battler moaned as he instantly regenerated his arm. This quickly told Raseri that he did not have to restrain his physical power or the full force of his punches when using "Kinetiske Stil". "Great regeneration huh? Well I guess I don't have to pull my punches", the stoic hero thought as he waited for Gamma to attack. The mystical being quickly teleported before Raseri and quickly went for a stab-like strike that would cut the nerve endings on Raseri's chest. Quickly dodging the strike, Raseri quickly noticed Gamma swung for a devastating energy-enhanced uppercut that greatly bruised Raseri's right cheek. But soon Gamma was at the receiving end of brutal knees and elbows that managed to break Gamma's arms. Seizing this opportunity, the merciless Son of Asgard quickly pulled his fist back and with an unrestrained jab, managed to literally punch through Gamma's chest with immense force. "Hyah!", Raseri had ended his combo with a high reverse roundhouse kick to the face that quickly knocked Gamma to the ground. Standing to his feet, the silent battler finally uttered some words. "You're very strong. And you're not going all out. You won't win like that", observant Gamma said. Raseri did not give a verbal respond, he knew what he was doing. He was after all the Ultimate Fighting God. Soon however, Gamma used his illusion-based powers in an attempt to confuse his highly skilled opponent by creating numerous illusionary copies of himself as he quickly surrounded courageous Raseri. "Which one's real?", Gamma said with a snide smirk. With a deep breath, Raseri took a stance very similar to boxing but it was clearly a unique one, still belonging to Kinetiske Stil. And suddenly, in a heartbeat, the Nordic Tiger unleashed an explosive barrage/flurry of countless fierce punches at every single Gamma he spotted. "Hadadadadadadadadadadada!", the unparalleled fighter had successfully defeated Gamma's illusion as the real Gamma was lying on the arena floor after being hit by countless punches that left numerous hollows on his body. Unable to heal from the damage he had suffered due to its severity, Gamma was eliminated from the tournament, but before being helped off the arena, he had some words for Mr. Muscles.
Earth's Champion (Part 4)
Gamma had been clearly defeated by his unimaginably skilled opponent. However, before being carried off the arena in a robotic stretcher, the silent fighter had some words for ferocious Raseri. "You're strong. I've never fought anyone like you. If Yan reaches the final match with you, you're going to win", Gamma said seconds before falling into unconsciousness. Strangely enough, after listening to his defeated opponent's words, a look of determination made its way onto the Nordic Tiger's face. He wanted to win, he wanted to be the UUF Champion, and he was going to give it his all if necessary to be exactly that. Soon, Raseri stepped off the arena and returned to the vast complex of infrastructures where he was again welcomed by the many fighters, including Yan. Most of the fighters were quite surprised at Gamma's words, not because most of them think of Yan as an unbeatable fighting genius, but because Gamma was perhaps Yan's biggest fan. He would never say such a thing, but Raseri was apparently different. "What Gamma said, that was a shocker", Yan said in a more serious tone than before. He continued, "Now I really want to fight you", he said with an enthusiastic and determined smile. Raseri responded with his own confident smile and a nod, but gave no verbal response. Soon many fighters began to approach him. "Hey Raseri, if you beat Yan, you'll be known as the best fighter ever. You're going to be famous man. Since this is being broadcasted all over the universe. Man the idea that Yan might lose gives me goose bumps", said a superhuman fighter originating from Earth. With the rest of the other fighters, Raseri watched the matches of the second round, including Yan's match which he won quite effortlessly. Soon, Raseri's match was announced. He was to face an alien being by the name of Laxix, a powerful fighter who even Yan has not actually defeated. Laxix is technically undefeated, his only loss was during a battle with Yan in which he was disqualified for using a weapon despite having the advantage at the time. Stepping onto the arena, Raseri was greeted by a round of applause and energetic cheers. Apparently he has become a crowd favorite. Laxix confidently walked towards his opponent, not hesitating to mock him, "Hmph.. why do I always get the weak ones. I've seen your style during your matches. Its no big deal. You're just a hyped up piece of garbage", Laxix criticized, only for Raseri to boldly reply without hesitation, "Watch your tongue you sewer rat. I'm going to give you the beatdown of a lifetime, clown", the Nordic Tiger said coldly as he glared at his deadly opponent. And as soon as the bell rang, Laxix was quick to go for an impressive uppercut, aiming to crack Raseri's jaw with his massive physical power. Quickly dodging the attack, Raseri jumped away from the attack as he countered by performing a hook kick that shot a powerful blast of invisible kinetic energy that knocked a surprised Laxix off his feet. "That was nothing", Laxix said, brushing off the attack as he went for a jab that Raseri dodged with a quick sidestep, however for some reason the mighty demigod was hit and sustained a bruise on his right cheek. But how? For the moment, Raseri did not know. "Interesting", he thought to himself as he unleashed a lightning-quick flurry of countless explosive kicks, each capable of splitting entire mountains in half. A rather fast Laxix managed to block and dodge every single kick, although he did sustain bruises on his forearms from blocking such strong attacks. "He's strong", Laxix thought as he countered with a special technique of his. Leaping into the air, Laxix suddenly created countless clones of himself and used them all to surround and hit Raseri with deadly stabbing strikes designed to somehow cut his body into pieces.
Sensing the danger of this attack, Raseri used his control over kinetic energy to create a thin layer of kinetic energy around his body, in order to resist the attack better. "You're just a hyped up piece of shit! Just like Yan!", Laxix shouted as he pummeled his menacingly muscular opponent with an incalculable number of stabbing strikes. While blocking some of the strikes, Raseri was being protected by the layer of kinetic energy radiating from his body. However, soon he began to sense Laxix's strikes penetrate the layer as he began to sustain bloody cuts on his body, the strikes also managed to tear Raseri's shirt off his body. Some deep, others light. "If I had used The Nor Way then I would have ended this fool long ago", courageous Raseri thought as he was being punished by Laxix's brutal blows. Flexing all of his muscles, Raseri generated a colossal wave of kinetic energy that vaporized all of Laxix's clones and knocked the real Laxix into the air. Taking this opportunity, Raseri projected a massive stream of scorching hot flames with a powerful jab. The ruthless fighter was using his "Tilstand av Brann" technique. Caught by surprise, Laxix barely managed to protect himself with a force field. While he was projecting the intense red flames with his right fist, Raseri quickly shot an immensely powerful slash of kinetic energy at Laxix with a high roundhouse kick. The kinetic energy slash shattered Laxix's force field and allowed the Tilstand av Brann flames to envelop Raseri's deadly opponent. Not aiming to kill his opponent, Raseri stopped using the flames as Laxix fell to the ground, but quickly got to his feet. He had sustained several burn marks but was otherwise fine. Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, Laxix created massive boulders out of thin air and shot them all at Raseri. Countering the attack, the Ultimate Fighting God shattered every single boulder into tiny pebbles with explosive punches and kicks. However, as the thick dust and smoke settled in the air mere nanoseconds from the destruction of the boulders, Laxix used this situation to his advantage. Quickly appearing behind Raseri, he struck the unparalleled fighting machine on the back with several stabbing strikes and ended the combo with a powerful energy wave that Raseri managed to redirect into the sky, causing it to explode during flight. Sliding backwards, Raseri felt an odd sensation on his back. And without warning, areas on his back began to eject blood similarly to a geyser. "Not bad", Raseri said as he stopped losing blood. "I wish I could say the same for you", Laxix said as he charged straight at Raseri and suddenly they found themselves locked in a clinch as they tested each other's strength. Neither was backing down, Raseri appeared to be slightly stronger, and he would gradually become stronger. However, using this situation to his advantage, Raseri lightly pressed against a pressure point on Laxix's forearm with his thumb, temporarily disabling his opponent's arms. He had secretly used The Nor Way in the most unnoticeable manner, even a fighting genius like Yan was unaware of this. "I hope you can regenerate", Raseri said before ripping out both of Laxix's arms from his body. "Graaaaaaaaahhhhh! F*ck!", Laxix cried in pain. Channeling massive amounts of kinetic energy into his body, Raseri unleashed a brutal barrage of explosive and powerful punches, "Hadadadadadadadadadadadadadadada!", these punches were meant to cause unbearable pain to the opponent. And finally, Raseri defeated Laxix with a reverse high roundhouse kick to the head, "Wadaa!", the kick was delivered with great force that it instantly knocked Laxix out cold. As Raseri was declared the victor, the crowd cheered. He will forever be remembered as the first and only man to ever defeat Laxix in combat. However, this only meant that more people began to believe that Raseri was perhaps the man who will go on to defeat Yan to win the UUF Championship.
Earth's Champion (Part 5)
After his latest victory, the Unparalleled Fighting Machine received an unbelievable amount of recognition for his great skill and ferocity, as well as establishing records. Soon Yan's fight came up. And unsurprisingly, the confident free-styler made short work of his opponent, effortlessly dominating the entire match with his free and fluid combat style. The matches went by, and when the mighty Nordic Tiger was called to participate in his next match, it came as no surprise to everyone when he tore his opponent apart with his powerful Kinetiske Stil style. However, what did come as a surprise was the unstoppable fighter defeating his opponent in precisely fifteen seconds via knockout. This was once again establishing another record. And as the matches went by, both Raseri and Yan won their matches so convincingly that it was indeed fate that they meet each other in the arena. Now in the semi-finals of the third round, the Ultimate Fighting God had only one more opponent to defeat in order to head into the finals against Yan who had already won his match. But of course, this match was not going to be an easy, no far from it. Raseri was going to be facing the other man who has come this far by defeating everyone else in his path to the ultimate victory. Raseri's opponent was a fellow fighter from Earth, an American superhuman that was about the same size and height as Raseri. Nicknamed "Colossus", his fighting style was one that boasted unbelievable fighting power, meeting force with greater. Similar to Raseri's Kinetiske Stil. Upon setting foot on the arena for his match, Raseri stood before a massive figure, one that was about his size. Mr. Muscles had heard that Colossus is a physical power, and he was somewhat excited to fight him. Strangely, unlike most of the competitors in the UUF tournament, Colossus was a humble and reversed fighter who did not boast about his power and countless victories. "So you're Raseri huh? I've heard great things about you. I'm really excited to finally fight you", Colossus said with an enthusiastic smile. "Then lets not waste anytime and let these people watch a fight that they will never forget", Raseri said with a smile as he took a Kinetiske Stil fighting stance, while Colossus took his own unique fighting stance. Suddenly, the fight ensued as Raseri went for an explosively powerful jab aiming to strike Colossus across the jaw, however, the American superhuman managed to quickly dodge the jab with a swift sidestep. "You're good", the Nordic Tiger said, complimenting his opponent's evasion. But in a mere second after having missed the punch, Raseri's fist generated a massive outward flailing explosive wave of kinetic energy that knocked Colossus meters away in a magnificent display of overwhelming fighting power. "I haven't been hit like that in a long time", Colossus thought as he managed to land safely on the arena ground. And in a dashing display of speed, the superhuman appeared beside Raseri and quickly delivered a high roundhouse kick that the Son of Thunder managed to block with his forearm. But from out of nowhere, Raseri found himself struck by an invisible kick from an unseen leg. The kick was quite strong and it managed knock him a few meters away. "What the hell?", Raseri thought to himself as he slid back on his feet. "Huh?! I see now", Raseri thought as his energy-sensing abilities allowed him to detect Colossus' strange aura. It was an odd battle aura that he could use as arms and legs. Charging straight at Colossus, once he was inches away from his opponent, Raseri spotted an incoming hit from Colossus' aura. "He knows!", Colossus thought, alarmed. And in a split second, Raseri brutally struck Colossus with an explosive flurry of powerful punches and stabbing strikes that mercilessly took the powerful Colossus apart.
As he bombarded Colossus with a series of merciless and powerful strikes, Raseri knew that he could not slow his pace down against an opponent this strong. "Wadadadadadadadadadadada! Wadaaa!", he shouted as he punched Colossus across the entire arena. Mere centimeters from sliding off the arena and being off bounds, Colossus quickly leaped towards Raseri who was preparing to deliver a high reverse roundhouse kick charged by massive amounts of kinetic energy. Quickly parrying the highly powerful kick, Colossus calmly pointed at the Son of Asgard's chest. At first Raseri was somewhat confused, until he quickly sensed an enormous amount of energy about to be discharged. Suddenly, from the blink of an eye, Colossus generated a humongous lightning bolt from his finger as he shot Raseri into the sky. "Damn he's good", Raseri thought as he had sustained some serious burn marks. Clearly this was no ordinary lightning. Colossus had used the essence of nature to enhance his lightning bolt's power. Managing to safely land on the arena ground, Raseri quickly shot countless slashes of kinetic energy at Colossus by performing a medium roundhouse, a jump spin hook kick and finally a butterfly kick. Quickly dodging every single kinetic energy slash, Colossus wasted no time in charging his entire body with an outward flailing aura of his mysterious lightning and dashing over to Raseri at impossible speeds. "He's faster than before", the Ultimate Fighting God noticed. Unleashing a massive barrage of explosive punches and kicks, Colossus was overwhelming Raseri with his immense speed and power. This was the fight that Raseri had been searching for. Watching the battle from the sidelines, Yan thought to himself, "Colossus, other than Raseri, you are the only other person I wish to fight. Ever since our spar that day. You're really strong my friend, but I don't think Raseri is showing us everything he can do though", Yan thought, revealing that he shares a rivalry with Colossus. As the final punch was about to swung, Raseri was suddenly surrounded in a mystical flame. Yes this was indeed Tilstand av Brann. Swiftly parrying Colossus' punch, Raseri went for a Kinetiske Stil diagonal kick, successfully striking Colossus on the face with an earth-shattering punch. The ferocious fighting machine followed his kick with an uppercut elbow that generated a powerful kinetic energy slash that nearly cut Colossus' arm off if not for his well-timed evasion. After jumping out of the way of the kinetic energy slash, Colossus swung for countless punches as each punch discharged a powerful ball of the mysterious lightning. Shooting small slashes of kinetic energy at the lightning balls with quick kicks, Raseri had countered his opponent's dangerous move. The collisions between the attacks resulted in numerous poofs of smoke, using this opportunity to his advantage, Colossus silently made his way behind Raseri and delivered a massively powerful punch on the demigod's spine. Suddenly appearing in front of the Nordic Tiger, Colossus struck Raseri in the gut with a vicious kick. Gushing out some blood, Raseri thought to himself, "This guy is a really good fighter. Like me he created his own style, and it is better than Kinetiske Stil. Even if it is only slightly, at this rate I will lose unless I rely on my strength. I must use The Nor Way", a wounded Raseri thought to himself as he quickly dodged Colossus' hook and managed to lock Colossus into a clinch. Striking Colossus with powerful kinetic energy-enhanced knees, Raseri had successfully stunned his opponent and proceeded to deliver a quick kick on Colossus' ankle, striking a pressure point that temporarily paralyzed his opponent's body. Taking this opportunity to his advantage, Raseri focused all of the kinetic energy he had gathered during the fight into one explosive punch that brutally struck Colossus in the face, generating an enormous and powerful shock-wave accompanied by an unspeakably loud boom. As the crowd roared in amazement, Colossus was somehow conscious. "This guy is very strong", Raseri thought. Though he could not move due to his temporary paralysis, Colossus used his battle aura to fight for him. Being struck down by the massive hits of Colossus' aura, Raseri knew that one more attack would do the trick. Though both men were wounded, Raseri had the advantage and finally won with a massive kinetic energy blast discharged by a powerful jab. The invisible blast overwhelmed the already weakened Colossus, and yet he remained conscious but lost due to "Technical Knockout" as he was unable to continue fighting. As Colossus was helped off the arena, Raseri was ready to enter the final match of the UUF tournament against Yan.
Earth's Champion (Part 6)
It was finally time for the most anticipated match in the UUF tournament to take place. Raseri was determined to win the tournament by defeating Yan, while Yan himself was determined to maintain his undefeated record and win the UUF title for the second time. "I have been waiting for this", Yan said as he approached the arena in an enthusiastic manner. A calm yet determined Raseri replied as he cracked his knuckles, "The feeling's mutual". The crowd roared in excitement as the bell rang, and the epic fight ensued. The Nordic Tiger attacked first, shooting a vast volley of kinetic energy balls with a series of explosive punches and kicks. Using his freestyle fighting art to swiftly dodge every single ball of kinetic energy, Yan dashed over to Raseri and quickly went for a horizontal claw attack on the right side of Raseri's torso. Successfully striking his opponent, Yan followed his attack with a diagonal kick that Raseri blocked with his forearm. Pushing Yan away with a kinetic energy wave from flexing his muscles, Raseri believed himself to be unharmed. Soon however, the right side of the powerful demigod's torso began to spill blood as numerous cuts were formed on it. "Not bad, not bad at all", Raseri thought to himself as he took a defensive stance. With a confident smirk on his face, Yan ran towards Raseri, leaving countless after-images of himself behind. Unable to follow Yan's movements with his own eyes, Raseri relied on his energy-sensing abilities at the moment. Quickly sidestepping an incoming punch, the Ultimate Fighting God countered with a thunderous medium and high roundhouse kick, knocking Yan off his feet. In a mere second, Yan got back to his feet, seemingly unaffected by Raseri's attack, only to find that his left shoulder was dislocated. "Hehe, lets do this", Yan murmured as he unleashed a quick flurry of complicated claws, kicks and karate chops. Parrying most of his opponent's attacks, Raseri was ultimately struck by Yan's karate chop as it left a deep cut on his right cheek. Countering with a barrage of powerful kinetic-energy enhanced punches, Raseri failed to attack Yan as the overconfident freestyler blocked and parried every single punch, and even countered with swift kicks that left several bruises and cuts on Raseri's body. Clearly, Kinetiske Stil was not the fighting style to use against Yan. But one more attempt should truly test Yan. Focusing all of his physical power and kinetic energy into one earth-shattering hook, Raseri attempted to punch right through Yan, knowing fully well that his opponent can regenerate from such injuries. Quickly sensing the amount of power in Raseri's punch, Yan dodged it by falling back and countered with a low spinning kick that would sever the nerve endings on Raseri's right leg. Knocked off his feet by Yan's kick, Raseri suddenly felt a significant amount of pain on his right leg. "His fighting style is very good. Its the perfect foil to Kinetiske Stil. But it lacks true defense. I must now use The Nor Way", the Son of Thunder as his nerve endings were severed.
Getting to his feet, Raseri took a different fighting stance, still unique but one that Yan has never seen in his life. "Come now Yan. I know that you're not fighting at your fullest", Raseri said as he waited for Yan to attack first. "Hmph.. you're smart my friend. Alright then. Let me show you the true power of my fist", Yan replied with a cocky smirk, taking yet another free stance. "Hmm Raseri changed his stance. I've never seen this one before. I guess he was saving his bag of tricks to face me", Yan thought to himself as he appeared more serious now. Swinging for a quick and deadly uppercut aimed at the Nordic Tiger's jaw, Yan was using a different style as well. However, Raseri quickly parried the uppercut and even managed to press a pressure point on Yan's arm, temporarily disabling it. "Watah!", Raseri had powerfully struck Yan across the chest with a jump spin kick. Although at first it seemed as though Yan was unscathed, very deep cuts and wounds formed on his chest as they squirted massive amounts of blood into the air. "Gaaah... what is this?", Yan asked in confusion. "The most powerful martial art on Earth", the Son of Asgard answered. Standing to his full height, Yan shrugged off his wounds and used his great battle aura to fight alongside him. Unleashing a violent barrage of punches and kicks, Yan also used his battle aura to deliver countless strikes. Bombarded by extremely powerful punches, Raseri was knocked into the air, sustaining several bruises. "Damn.. I thought Colossus was the only one who could do that", Raseri thought in surprise. Yan's attacks did not stop there. The former UUF Champion proceeded to charge his fists with unknown energy. "I will not lose", Yan said to himself as he leaped towards Raseri and delivered an incalculable number of powerful energy-enhanced punches that not only caused great external damage, but it temporarily disabled Raseri's body, leaving him unable to move or even think. Seeing the advantage in this opportunity, Yan viciously kicked Raseri into the middle of the arena. The impact caused a massive shock-wave but the arena was not even cracked. This was due to it being made of a nigh-indestructible material. Landing on the ground, Yan quickly dashed over to Raseri and proceeded to pummel him with countless brutal elbows and punches. Finally regaining control over his body, Raseri dodged a punch that would have knocked him out of bounds. Countering with a series of stabbing strikes and precise kicks, Raseri had hit a specific pressure point with the last strike. This vital point caused Yan's nervous system to become extremely hypersensitive. Now even a mere touch will cause unbearable pain. "Atatatatatatataatatatatatatah!", Raseri proceeded to mercilessly strike Yan with countless punches and stabbing strikes. Once the attack was over, Yan felt an odd sensation overcome him, and suddenly, all of his blood vessels had erupted, causing massive internal bleeding. Though he would survive, Yan was unable to continue. This fight was even easier than his previous one. But why? How? The answer is simple. Though Yan's free fighting style enabled him to pick his opponents apart, it lacked any real defense. And none of his opponents possessed a fighting style that could exploit that weakness. Only Raseri did. The crowd was overjoyed, and Yan was severely disappointed. "Freestyle fighting will cost you Yan. Maybe when we meet next time, you will be a better challenge", Raseri said. Raising his fist in victory, Raseri waited to be awarded with the UUF Title.
Earth's Champion (Part 7, Final)
It was a momentous occasion. Raseri was drowned in endless applauses and cheers. Not only did the deadly fighting demigod defeat the overconfident fighter Yan, but he created and surpassed num erous records. But most of all, menacing Raseri has broken Yan's undefeated streak that many have once celebrated. Yan himself has repeatedly boasted that his streak would never be broken, but apparently that is no longer the case. Yan has fallen against a marvelous opponent of superior skill. And though it was indeed a moment of celebration for the ferocious Nordic Tiger, it was a rather disappointing ending for Yan. His heart and soul plunged into a state of deep depression. Yan is not used to losing. Some people in the crowd couldn't believe their own eyes. They didn't expect Yan to be defeated, especially not by a newcomer. They expected him to bulldoze Raseri out of the way, clearing his path to victory. Unable to continue fighting due to his physical condition, Yan somehow possessed the strength to at least move, but lamely. Getting on to his knees, he looked at his opponent with an expression of disappointment in himself and depression. "I'm not used to losing. I wasn't born to lose!", he said, his voice filled with some anger. "But you've won. And I remember what I said I'd do if I ever lost in a fight", pointing his index finger on the side of his neck, Yan revealed, "Though I'm not a pressure point master, I do know some tricks. I promised myself that if I ever lose, then I would press this point on my neck which will force me to forget all of my combat knowledge. So that I may start fresh with a newer better style than this one. It failed me. I never thought this day would come", Yan said as he prepared to forget all he has learned. However, in the blink of an eye, he felt a force restrain him from proceeding with his intended action. It was Raseri. Tightly grabbing Yan by the wrist with his right hand, he said, "Seriously? You're going to make me regret fighting you two minutes after the fight is over? And I'm not regretting this because of what you want to do to yourself. But because I can see now how weak your spirit is. Despite all that confidence, all of your statements, your fighting spirit was always weak. And I don't like fighting weak-willed people. But because this isn't a movie and I know that my words won't mean anything to you, I'll just do this", Raseri said, catching Yan by surprise as he quickly poked him behind the head. "I just poked a life hole that will heal you spiritually and mentally of your depression. Now you can improve your free style", Raseri said as he released Yan's wrist from his powerful grip.
Before being carried off on a robotic stretcher, Yan spoke, "Thank you Raseri. I almost lost it there. But yes, now I'm going to return to training. And be careful. I plan on returning as soon as possible to avenge my defeat by defeating you in this arena", Yan confidently warned. With a calm chuckle, Raseri welcomed Yan's warnings with a friendly smile as he gave his verbal response, "I'll be waiting for your return", and that was the last time that the Ultimate Fighting God saw Yan, until their next encounter in the future. Meanwhile, after being carried off the arena, Yan was taken to the medical facilities as an excited Al-Gore walked into the arena, holding the UUF Championship Belt in his arms. "Ladies and Gentlemen! Behold the new UUF Champion, Raseri Ruud!", Al-Gore enthusiastically announced into a futuristic hovering microphone-like device. The tiny alien's words drew a loud applause and energetic cheers as Raseri gladly took the UUF title and lifted it in the air, a look a accomplishment and satisfaction in his eyes. Taking his time with the crowd, the Son of Thunder celebrated his momentous victory with them as the other UUF competitors watched from the sidelines. However, soon after his celebrations ended, Al-Gore told Raseri that there is one more thing he needs, "Hold on big guy. I haven't shaken your hand yet", the alien said with a quirky smile. After firmly shaking Raseri's hands, Al-Gore curiously asked, "Is that how you do it on Earth?", which drew a chuckle from Raseri as he replied, "Yeah, thats exactly how we do it". "Oh and this is the last thing, I promise. You need to get your paycheck", Al-Gore revealed. "Paycheck?", Raseri murmured. "Well of course! You didn't think you were going to risk your own wellbeing for free did you? Its not like we're hosting a gladiator battle hehe", Al-Gore said as he escorted Raseri to the office of the President of UUF. Calmly walking into the office with Al-Gore, Raseri was politely told to take a seat by UUF's President. "Hello, my name is Zim. You must be the winner of the tournament. Nice to meet you, and you are?", a charismatic Zim asked as he gave Raseri a firm and respectful handshake. "I'm Raseri. Nice to meet you as well", the Nordic Tiger said with a friendly but professional smile. "Now as Al-Gore must have told you, we are here to talk about your paycheck. Anyone who wins the UUF Tournament earns at least thirty five billion crystals. But because you set numerous records on your path to victory, and broke Yan's streak, you earned precisely forty nine billion crystals. And don't worry about the money not being valid on Earth. We'll convert it before you leave, once converted that should amount to forty billion dollars. Congratulations Raseri", Zim said with a happy smile. Clearly this was kind of overwhelming, Raseri didn't expect to become wealthy, but he did it by doing what he does best: Fighting. Raseri went on to win ten UUF tournaments, becoming a ten-division champion, winning the UUF Title ten times, more times than any other fighter in history. Being the first fighter to win ten UUF Titles, Raseri not only set yet another record, but he now holds the longest undefeated record in the history of UUF. This along with his unmatchable skill has led to Raseri being widely considered the greatest fighter of all time, earning him the nicknames "The Greatest and The Ultimate Fighting God", nicknames that he proudly lived up to. But it was at the special event known as UUF Apocalypse that Raseri would go on to put up the most exciting fight ever, against a returning Yan, however this battle was still in the future. Though he had become a famous fighter across the entire universe, back on Earth he was known as a hero and fearsome fighter, but it was a different status.
Gods of Fighting (Part 1)
The sound of clashing fists and blood spilling was prominent in the air. All thanks to the recent battle Raseri was in. He was fighting a behemoth of a man, a man more massive than even him. It was quite surprising to find someone this big. But unfortunately, it was Raseri who found him. But who else to better take care of such a monster? This man's name was Fuerza. He was a powerful man with great influence among several villains for being one of the strongest beings to walk the face of the Earth, and especially due to his vast array of superhuman henchmen. But how did he ever come into conflict with The Nordic Tiger? Well the answer is simple if you think about it. Raseri has been building quite the reputation for himself. Not just as one of the best fighters of his generation, but as one of Earth's most valuable and kindhearted heroes. This of course, made Fuerza realize that they will inevitably cross paths one day, and decided to take matters into his own hands. Sending his large army of henchmen after the incredible fighter proved to be fruitless as they were all defeated. Taking matters into his own hands, Fuerza decided to eliminate this potential threat himself. And so Raseri's current situation puts him in a tight spot. The two have been having a rather long fight, both having exhausted most of their power and both injured. "Gnnah! You're a pain in the ass Fuerza", Raseri said as he knocked the behemoth off his feet with a high roundhouse kick. Quickly getting back to his feet, the overconfident Fuerza replied, "Yeah well so are you", he said in his gruff voice as he went for a jab that Raseri quickly blocked. "You're childish too?", the Unparalleled Fighting Machine replied as he attempted to strike Fuerza with an elbow, only for the hulking villain to jump backwards, but not before generating a violent burst of immensely powerful chi energy that knocked Raseri through a wall. "Now you die!", Fuerza shouted as he discharged a colossal energy wave from his palms. "Shit", Raseri said under his breath as he charged his body with massive amounts of kinetic energy, preparing to counter Fuerza's energy wave. Running straight at the energy wave, Raseri wondered where Fuerza even came from. "Where the hell do these guys even come from?", he thought to himself as he clashed with the energy wave and quickly released all the kinetic energy he had charged as it dematerialized the energy wave that would have caused unspeakable damage to Raseri's hometown Bergen. "Hahahaha! How foolish!", Fuerza mocked as he approached Raseri who was on his knee, trying to get to his feet as the fatigue began to impair his performance. "Hehehe.. look at that hair of yours. Long and pretty, tell me boy, who's your hairstylist?", Fuerza laughed as he mocked. Raseri however, fearlessly replied, "Your mother", and quickly went for a stabbing strike aimed at a vital point on Fuerza's chest. If struck, it will cause the villain's heart to swell up and leave him unable to continue fighting. However, as Raseri struck the pressure point, Fuerza was unaffected. "What?", Raseri murmured in disbelief. "What the hell was that?", Fuerza laughed in amusement as he sent the Son of Thunder flying into building with an energy-charged uppercut. Crashing into an office on a tall building, Raseri got to his feet and wondered why his attack had no effect. "How is that even possible? I've got to find out", he thought as he jumped out of the building through a window and blasted Fuerza into the ground with a massive invisible kinetic energy wave he discharged from his fist. As Fuerza was down, Raseri used this opportunity to get close to his opponent and locked him in a test of strength as they struggled in a hold while their fists clashed. "You're not going to win", Raseri said. He continued, "I've discovered your secret", he revealed, much to the surprise and dismay of Fuerza.
A shocked Fuerza smiled and replied, "Oh you have now?", he asked sarcastically. "Why don't you be the judge of that", Raseri said as he brutally punched Fuerza in the gut, using his Kinetiske Stil style first, then he quickly went for a quick palm strike that caused Fuerza to feel unbearable pain in his chest. "Gaaaah! What the f*ck did you do to me?", he asked as he vomited blood. "I hit your vital point. So I see how your body works. You're not normal at all. Your body has a very thick layer of muscle, its too thick, even by superhuman standards. It covers your vital points. Your points can only be struck when I soften your muscle layers with heavy hits, only then can I hit your points. You lose chump", the Unparalleled Fighting Machine revealed. "I'm about to give you the beat-down of a lifetime punk", Raseri said, just before he launched an incredibly fast barrage of Kinestiske Stil punches that softened Fuerza's layers of muscle. A mere second afterwards, Raseri went for one of his deadliest moves, striking countless pressure points in Fuerza's body with super-fast stabbing strikes. "Watatatatatah!", Raseri's strikes were precise yet powerful. Suddenly, the right side of Fuerza's forehead began to swell into inhuman sizes. "What did you to me!?", an alarmed Fuerza asked, demanding answers. As the swelling continued, the right side of the villain's forehead finally exploded in a bloody mess as he collapsed on the ground. And before falling into a deadly coma, he warned Raseri of his inevitable return. "You may have won today kid, but I'll be back. And you know it. I'll survive this. I'm just as superhuman as you are hehe", however Raseri replied coldly to his opponent's words, "I'm not a superhuman. I'm a demigod, idiot". "Bah! You're the idiot.. you don't even have the balls to kill me", Fuerza said. "No that's not it. I just have the balls to let you live, because I know that I can beat you again", The Nordic Tiger said as he walked away, leaving Fuerza to suffer in agony before falling into a coma. Injured in battle, Raseri returned home to rest and heal, as well as train once he is in better condition. Putting on a few bandages, The King of Fists walked into his gym and began meditating, in order to temporarily accelerate his healing process. "Fuerza sure is strong. Very strong. He relies too much on brute force and his energy attacks. If only he could see that good he'd be able to do as a hero", Raseri thought, as he began to heal at a faster rate. After two days, Raseri was fully healed and was back to training as he was seen striking his punching bag with innovative and effective moves. However, soon everything was about to take a drastic alteration. In the midst of an eerie silence, Raseri heard a faint explosion outside his house. Quickly rushing outside to check the sound of explosions, he was surprised that he found nothing. "I could have sworn I heard something", he said just above a whisper. But to his surprise, he turned around to find two tall masked individuals standing before him. Drawing out black swords, these mysterious assailants swung for Raseri's head, only for the The Greatest to duck and blast them into countless trees with an invisible burst of kinetic energy that he generated by flexing his biceps, "Who the hell are you guys?", Raseri asked in confusion. "He'll do perfectly", the two assailants said in unison. Running straight towards Raseri, they went for his torso this time. Shattering the swords' blades with his forearms, The Nordic Tiger warned the two strangers, "I don't want to hurt anybody", as he grabbed them by the throat. However, the mysterious beings touched his massive arms, clearly no match for Raseri, physically, but they had a plan. A sharp needle on the index finger of one of the assailants pierced Raseri's skin, injecting an unknown substance that forced the Son of Thunder to lose his consciousness. However before losing consciousness, Raseri did not hesitate to warn the two beings, "When I wake up, I'm going to clean house". Unknown to Raseri, he was being taken by the two mysterious beings to be forced to participate in the gladiator battles on Planet Arc.
Gods of Fighting (Part 2)
The smell of blood was in the air. The sound of swords clashing, shields blocking, arrows and spears piercing was all that could be heard. Well, all except the determined battle cries. This was a sign. Raseri was regaining consciousness. Soon, powerful rays of light forced his eyelids to open. "Where the hell am I?", he murmured as he slowly got to his feet, still staggering. "Whatever those guys dosed me with is pretty strong", he thought while lightly rubbing his head. Standing to his full height, a shocked Raseri was speechless as he found himself in a prison cell. Walking towards the cell's metal bars, Raseri calmly grabbed them and tested their endurance as he attempted to bend them with his monstrous strength. However, even mighty Raseri's strength could not budge the metal bars. Soon, a gruff voice from the shadows was heard. "You cannot escape", the mysterious voice said. From the shadows of the neighboring cell, a large lion-like creature emerged, introducing himself as "Lyon". "I am Lyon. I have been a gladiator here for years. There is no way to escape. Those metal bars are unbreakable", the experienced warrior warned. "Wanna bet?", Raseri said as he used quickly discovered the bars' weak points and effortlessly broke them to the amazement of the stunned Lyon. "What kind of strength is this?", Lyon gasped in amazement. "That wasn't my strength at work. It was my skill. I found the weak points of those bars and I broke them", Raseri explained. However, before he could escape and free Lyon, one of the arena guards approached him. "Hey new meat! You're up", the guard said rudely. "I bet ya won't even last a second in the arena huh tough guy hehehe", the guard said chuckling. However, his amusement soon ceased when he noticed the broken metal bars, "Who did this?", the guard asked furiously. "We don't know. I was told that these bars are unbreakable. Doesn't seem like it though", a bold and fearless Raseri replied as the guard opened his cell door and escorted him into the gladiator arena. And before the battle began, the guard asked Raseri what his weapon of choice was. "So what weapon do ya want? A sword? Spear? What?", he asked. "No weapon. I don't need one", Raseri replied confidently, much to the guard's amusement. "Fine. Its yer funeral tough guy", the guard chuckled. Standing in the middle of the arena, Raseri noticed the vast crowd shouting for blood to be shed. He spotted lifeless corpses being dragged off the arena by numerous guards, puddles of blood, and countless broken weapons. Cracking his knuckles in a menacing manner, Raseri waited for his opponent. But he was surprised to find that he was going to be facing a group of opponents. A large group of masked fighters were lead into the arena, all armed with swords. "Kill the new meat!", they shouted as they charged straight at him. "Shut the hell up", Raseri said as he performed a deadly butterfly kick that generated a ring of kinetic energy which knocked the masked men on their backs. "I don't want to hurt you guys. You've done me no wrong", the Nordic Tiger warned as he maintained his fighting stance. "What the hell was that? Ah it don't matter. Done you no wrong ya say? True but ya can't say the same for all the women we've ravaged hehehehehe! We kill you and we gain freedom, which means more women haha!", they all said in unison. This statement quickly angered the Unparalleled Fighting Machine. The moment the warriors had surrounded Raseri, their fate was sealed. Raseri unleashed a brutal barrage of high-speed Kinetiske Stil punches that completely shattered the skulls of every single one of his opponents much to the amazement of the crowd. "Watatatatatatatah!", Raseri had simultaneously killed his opponents in a demonstration of skill, speed, precision and power. "What a bunch of punks", Raseri said.
Unfortunately however, the battle was not over. The Ultimate Fighting God's final opponent for the day was just warming up. Soon, in a matter of seconds, a tall muscular blond man walked into the arena. His face held a stoic facial expression, but he did not appear to be a criminal. Perhaps he was another dragged to this place against will. "You're my opponent? This is gonna be easy", the blond man said. "My name's Corona. I'm the victor of this battle", he said while taking a fighting stance. "You wouldn't win even if Hell froze", Raseri responded confidently as he made a hand gesture signaling Corona to make his move. The blond warrior quickly pulled out a sword from a bag he was wearing and charged straight at Raseri, swinging the blade like a madman. "Die!", Corona shouted as he swung for The Greatest's head. Ducking out of harm's way, Raseri quickly struck Corona on the gut with a light palm strike that instantly paralyzed the warrior's body. The Son of Thunder's palm strike was quickly followed by an earth-shattering hook that nearly knocked the surprisingly durable Corona unconscious. The Kinetiske Stil hook that struck Corona's chin with devastating force, sent him flying into the walls of the arena. "The fury of my fists will humble you", the deadly Nordic Tiger said as he proceeded to ruthlessly punch the arena floor, causing it to split open, creating a colossal fissure. "Just give up. You don't have to die like the rest of them", Raseri said as Corona dashed over to him only to be knocked into the fissure by a high roundhouse kick. However, the resilient Corona blasted out of the fissure and nearly grabbed Raseri by the throat, only to be struck with numerous stabbing strikes that caused all of his blood vessel's to erupt violently. Leaning in closer to Corona, Raseri said just above a whisper, "I know you're not a criminal like the rest of them. You're like Lyon. They brought you here against your will didn't they?", Raseri asked. The question brought shock into Corona's eyes. "How the hell did you know that?", a shocked Corona asked. "Your eyes told me everything. You have sorrow in them", Raseri answered. In order not to alert the crowd, The King of Fists grabbed Corona by the throat and lifted him in the air. "I won't kill you. But this will hurt", Raseri said just above a whisper so that Corona could hear his words. Letting go of the blond warrior's throat, Raseri quickly went for a merciless Kinetiske Stil chop that sent a quick surge of kinetic energy into Corona's body, leaving the unskilled warrior in a temporary state similar to death. "We'll conduct escape plans soon. You're free now", Raseri thought, knowing fully well that the arena will no longer have any use for Corona, the warrior's body will be dropped outside of the arena. "Behold your winner! The King of Fists!", the announcer shouted as the crowd chanted Raseri's new nickname "The King of Fists". That is the first time this nickname was ever used by someone else. But why? Simple, Raseri's barrage of high-speed punches was the most prominent and memorable moment in today's battle. But Raseri will soon be in for a rude awakening. This is much more than a simple gladiator tournament. Something more sinister lies underneath it all.
Gods of Fighting (Part 3)
Ordered to leave the arena after his outstanding performance, Raseri was taken to a place he never expected to walk in. The King of Arc had requested a private meeting with the Nordic Tiger. Escorted into the king's throne room by a group of heavily armed guards, Raseri was given a cold but curious greeting. "The King of Fists huh? Lets get something straight here. I'm the only king around this place", a tall and regal man said with a snide smirk. "Whatever. Besides, its not my fault I seem like more of a king than you do", Raseri mocked defiantly as he smiled boldly. "You dare?.. Strike him!", the king ordered as one of his guards viciously hit Raseri with a war-hammer that cracked upon physical contact with the Son of Thunder. Dropping to one knee, Raseri kept his defiant and bold smile. "Nice shot punk", he said as he calmly got to his feet. "I could take all of these guys out all at once and get home if I wanted to. But those people being forced to fight need my help. I've gotta free them", Raseri thought to himself, his attention drifting away from the king and his royal servants. "Now that he's been disciplined, we can begin. I am King Darius. Your match was most impressive. I've never seen such a fighting style. Your physical prowess is incredible as well. I have brought you here with the offer to work for me as one of the soldiers in my army", Darius said with all the arrogance and smugness in the world. "Thanks for the offer but I don't get along too well with your boys here", the Nordic Tiger replied as he rejected Darius' offer. Soon the king's smug smirk faded after hearing Raseri's words. "Then you will die in the arena!", Darius expressed his anger as Raseri was soon taken back to his cell and told to rest for the next day as he was to face all the fighters and beasts used in the arena battles. Resting in his cell, Raseri spoke to Lyon and Corona. "Lyon, Corona, tonight we're breaking free from this place and we're going to free everyone. We've gotta stop this madness", Raseri said as he quickly freed both his comrades by breaking their cells. The trio went on to free all of the gladiators forced to fight in the arena during the quiet night. Finding a good hideout in a hidden cave somewhere on the planet. In the cave, Raseri revealed his plan. "I'm sure all of you are tired of this right? So here's the plan. We're going to overthrow the king. Tonight we set the arena on fire and destroy his forces", said The Greatest as all agreed with his plan. Once the perfect moment had arrived, Raseri and his forces silently moved through the city of Arc and eventually made their way into the arena where the ferocious fighting master Raseri set it ablaze. "Tilstand av Brann!", Raseri shouted as he generated a colossal outward flailing burst of intense flames that engulfed the entire arena. In a matter of minutes, Darius and his troops arrived at the arena after smelling fire burning and noticing the immense light coming from their source of brutal entertainment. "What is the meaning of this!?", demanded a visibly angered Darius as he rode into the arena on a horse surrounded by numerous armed soldiers. "We're taking this place back from you!", shouted Raseri's comrades as the Son of Asgard stood in the middle, confidently waiting for a battle to ensue.
Soon Darius' eyes became filled with boiling rage as he ordered his soldiers to lay waste to all of Raseri's companions. "You! King of Fists! You are mine!", shouted the enraged king as he leaped from his horse-like creature, landing in front of the Ultimate Fighting God. Unsheathing a golden sword with magical inscriptions on them, Darius took a fighting stance. "You will die here in the arena with the rest of them!", Darius yelled furiously. A calm and visibly unfazed Raseri simply shook his head as he proceeded to crack his knuckles in a menacing manner. "You don't know who I am do you Darius? Well you're going to find out why they call me the King of Fists", the Nordic Tiger said as he provoked Darius into attacking first. The regal master swordsman swiftly swung for Raseri's head, only for the fighting genius to duck and go for a leg sweep which nearly caught Darius off guard but fortunately for the king he jumped and while in midair began to spin wildly as he attempted to cut Raseri with his incredibly sharp sword. Sustaining a small cut on his cheek, Raseri quickly flexed all of his muscles, generating a quick burst of kinetic energy that knocked Darius into the ground. Getting back to his feet at a remarkable speed, Darius dashed over to Raseri and began swinging and thrusting in a flurry of strikes with his sword. Quickly dodging and parrying with his incredible speed, Raseri calmly commented on the king's excellent skill with a sword. "Not too shabby for someone who depends on a big knife", Raseri said as he pulled his arm back, forming a fist. "But that's not enough", and in under a second, the Unparalleled Fighting Machine punched Darius in the gut with a powerful Kinetiske Stil uppercut. The amount of force in the punch caused the royal swordsman to vomit some blood as he managed to stay on his feet after withstanding a mountain-shattering strike from the most gifted fighter in the world. "Die!", Darius shouted as he attempted to chop Raseri's arm off, only for the master hand to hand combatant to quickly poke Darius' blade, instantly causing it to snap in half. "A struck a weak point on your sword so it broke. No matter how strong that blade was, it would have still broken. I can do that to people too. Wanna see?", Raseri said in an intimidating manner as he precisely hit Darius on the chest with a stabbing strike, striking a pressure point that caused his ribs to snap and his heart to start swelling, leaving him unable to continue fighting. However, Raseri's merciless assault was not over. The Best of the Best struck Darius across the face with a devastating roundhouse kick that not only broke the king's jaw but also struck a pressure point on his cheek that caused the muscles in his right arm to contract and violently snap it as the king's bone stuck out of his arm while blood began to spill. "Well that was fun", Raseri said as Darius clutched his arm in pain. But unfortunately, it wasn't over. Reaching for his shattered sword, Darius uttered some odd words causing his sword to repair itself. Uttering another group of words, Darius' sword enveloped the king in a temporary aura of light as the swordsman was miraculously healed by the sword's magical properties. "We're not done yet. Not by a long shot", Darius revealed, as flames of hatred burned in his eyes.
Gods of Fighting (Part 4)
The battle wasn't over, not by a long shot. After witnessing Darius' sword repair itself and heal its master's wounds, Raseri was quite surprised. With a somewhat shocked facial expression, the Nordic Tiger commented on his current situation. "Oh sh*t", he said after an exasperated sigh, voicing his annoyance and frustration. Standing to his full height, Darius had lost his vaunted demeanor for some reason. This was not normal for a villain used to getting everything that he wishes for. "I'm going to behead you now", Darius said in a serious tone, but still keeping a playful little smirk. And without giving the King of Fists even a second to respond, the arrogant tyrant dashed over to the Son of Thunder and powerfully swung his incredibly sharp sword at Raseri's neck. Barely dodging with his remarkable speed, Raseri was quick to counter with a roundhouse kick that struck the side of Darius' head with impending force, sending the king tumbling into some rocks. "It seems as though you're too strong for me in this form", Darius said as he rubbed the now swollen right side of his forehead. "Behold!", Darius shouted as a radiant beam of light that descended from the sky above them completely enveloped his being. Watching in surprise, Raseri held his fighting stance, "What the hell is happening?", he wondered. But soon his questions would be answered. Inside the beam of light, Darius and his magic sword merged to become one. Once the beam of light had faded away into the darkness, Darius emerged. The king was now about the same height and size as Raseri. "This is my ultimate form King of Fists. Behold! The King of Kings! Hahahaha!", Darius announced followed by smug laughter. "What a royal pain in the @ss", Raseri thought. Soon without warning, Darius charged straight towards Raseri at blinding speeds. The fierce Nordic Tiger simply stood firmly, apparently bracing himself for the colossal impact. However, just a second before the two collided, they both switched techniques. Raseri jumped just a few feet above Darius who went for a clever leg sweep. Turning his body in the air at such a speed, Raseri caught Darius with a leg scissors lock as the king stood up from the failed sweep. Tightening his hold on the king's throat with his incredible leg muscles, Raseri began choking the king to death. "Gnnh! Damn you..", Darius growled as he used all of the strength in his massive arms to try and break Raseri's hold. Running out of breath, Darius went for a more clever change of technique. Vibrating his body at the speed of light, Darius managed to moved right past The Greatest's hold and was free once again. Getting to his feet as quickly as he could, Raseri was quickly blindsided by Darius who caught him with a light-speed punch and then sent the demigod flying into the distance with a forceful light-speed kick. Quickly blasting back to the battlefield by using his Vinger av Lys technique, Raseri's fist clashed with Darius' in an epic display of power and speed. The shock-waves produced by their colliding punches and kicks nearly collapsed the entire arena. Raseri's Kinetiske Stil was no match for Darius' power-based fighting style, the king was matching him blow for blow.
However, in the midst of the intense battle, Raseri came to a realization. He could use the fight's momentum against Darius in a cheeky manner. Increasing the speed of his combat style to just a hair above the speed of light, the Ultimate Fighting God could sense how Darius was beginning to struggle with the high-speed combat. "You're strong for a chump", Raseri taunted, much to Darius' charge in. "Chump? Can you not see that we are evenly matched?", Darius said, voicing his opinion on the matter. "Yeah, only when I want it that way though", the Son of Asgard revealed as he quickly shifted from the earth-shattering Kinetiske Stil to the fluid and swift Fist of Life. Effortlessly dodging, blocking and parrying even Darius' best strikes, Raseri began to wonder how long it would take the king to realize that power does not work against the Fist of Life's nullifying counter. "Watah!", Raseri quickly delivered a heavy palm strike on Darius' gut that paralyzed the king for a moment due to having his life holes blocked for a minute. This time, delivering a deadly double-handed palm strike that sent Darius crashing into the ground, Raseri calmly watched as the lower half of Darius' body died. "What did you do to me?!", Darius asked in anger. "I killed your lower body", Raseri said coldly. "You think you've won? I'm done with you yet!", Darius shouted as he generated a massive energy wave that surprisingly didn't harm anybody in the battlefield. But soon the ground began to rumble and in the blink of an eye, humongous serpents and eighty foot giants with metal hammers burst from beneath the ground. "Hehe", Darius laughed with his last breath as the life-energy in his body began to deplete and eventually he died. However, Raseri's problems were far from over. "We'll take care of the serpents! You take the giants!", the other gladiators shouted as he quickly engaged the massive mythological serpents in ruthless combat. Turning to face the giants, Raseri took a Kinetiske Stil fighting stance as the giants laughed in amusement. "Ha! You're going to put us down? Don't be stupid! What are you gonna do b*tch!? I'm 100 tons!", one of the giants roared shaking the entire arena with his imposing voice. These statements caused Raseri's anger to skyrocket as he charged his entire body with a white flame-like aura of kinetic energy. His power increasing by the minute, his anger and rage, so intense that it could pierce the sky itself. "I'm gonna punch a hole through your skull", Raseri responded as he rammed into one of the giants with such strength that the behemoth dropped his colossal hammer. Grabbing the large hammer, Raseri swung it and broke the giant's knees, causing him to fall. Then the most complete fighter in the world proceeded to brutally kill the giant by repeatedly slamming the hammer on the creature's head. Turning to the other giants, Raseri made short work of one of them by completely vaporizing the skin of of its bones with an enormous invisible blast of kinetic energy that completely engulfed the giant. The final giant began to shiver in fright. Moving at the speed of light, Raseri ran all over the giant's body, striking all of its pressure points by using The Nor Way. Once he was done, the Nordic Tiger grabbed the giant by the toe and hurled him into the sky in a legendary display of his strength. When he was at least 500 feet in the air, the giant's body began to swell and soon it erupted violently, causing the sky to rain blood and organs.
Gods of Fighting (Part 5)
Blood fell from the sky as rain while organs and guts snowed. A moment of silence cursed the arena as all but mighty Raseri watched in awe. Corona and Lyon approached Raseri, thanking him for his help. "Words can't explain my gratitude friend", Lyon said with a tear dropping from his right eye. With a comforting smile, Raseri gently placed his hand on Lyon's shoulder, "Its okay Lyon. I understand you're grateful. There's no need to tell me how much gratitude you have. As long as you're free", the Nordic Tiger said. It was however, strange that the rest of the gladiators were not showing their gratitude, Corona for one was disturbingly silent. "King of Fists..", Corona uttered, breaking his silence. "It is not over. Darius may have died and his monsters may have been slain, but his troops will not stand for this. They will surely have our heads. Even you will not be able to defeat them all at once", Corona revealed, his eyes still filled with sadness. "Don't worry. We'll get through this", Raseri said, and though he seemed confident, he honestly had no plan in mind. "How many men will come for us?", Raseri asked, he was curious not worried. "A thousand perhaps..", Corona answered. "That'll be a walk in the park", Raseri replied with confidence and a charismatic smile. "Are you insane!? They'll kill us all!", Corona shouted. Lyon quickly intervened, "Corona! I believe he has a plan", an optimistic Lyon said, warning Corona to remain calm. "I do. Those soldiers I bet aren't that strong. Lyon insult me. It'll make me angry which will make strong enough to one-shot those soldiers in an instant. I'll waste less energy than blitzing them all", Raseri suggested. "Insult you? Alright.. your planet is primitive!", Lyon shouted, "Really is that all you got? Come on", Raseri replied. "Um okay.. uh... your fighting style is mediocre!", Lyon said with intensity. "No, something that's true", a rather composed Raseri said. "Let me take care of this", Corona interrupted, stepping in to replace Lyon. "Are you just going to stand there!? Thousands of armed men are coming to kill us all! And you're just going to let them do that!? Let them kill all of us innocent men!? You're pathetic!", Corona yelled. "Good keep going", a more serious Raseri commented. "We are all going to die! Is that what you want!? For me, you, and all of these other men to die!? If you die, all the people you fight for back on your planet will perish! Are you going to abandon them like this!? Your loved ones! Your family! Your friends! Your lover! Everyone!", Corona's words were more than enough. Mentioning his family and those that he loved, his teammates, everyone, it made him angry, very angry. The Fighting Guru's eyes changed, his pupils and irises were no more. His hair color grew lighter, and sparks of lightning began to radiate from his body. Once his eyes began to glow, Raseri commented on the entire situation as he felt the flame of his rage ignite. "You did good Corona", Raseri said with a determined smirk. "And just in time", Lyon added as countless heavy footsteps could be heard. Flexing his muscles, Raseri generated a colossal kinetic energy wave that reduced the entire arena to rubble. With the soldiers standing before them, Raseri's rage was apparent. And so was his might. "Vingar av Lys!", in an instant, The Greatest killed every single soldier in a miraculous display of speed, all in five seconds. He had completely blitzed the entire army by using the extra energy of his "Halv-Gud Raseri" state. Bloodied and dead, the soldiers were defeated.
Standing tall above them all was Raseri. "That was incredible!", Lyon said with complete and utter happiness as he ran towards Raseri who had just calmed down. "Yes it was quite impressive", a less than thrilled Corona added as well. "Thanks guys. I feel like I should help you all rebuild. I did kill your king after all", the King of Fists joked. "You could be our new king hehe", Lyon joked as well. Incapable of properly understanding sarcasm, Corona commented on their words, "No. He's not fit to rule", Corona said. "It's called a joke man, learn to laugh a little", Raseri said after patting Corona on the back. "I'll help you guys rebuild all of this alright? And establish a respectable kingdom. Oh and because we're all fighters, lets do something to help the world of fighting a little. It'll also help redeem the name of this place. I'm guessing a lot of people see this place as a barbaric wasteland with violent and brutal fights to the death right?", Raseri asked. "Indeed they do", Lyon answered. Corona was silent, secretly celebrating his freedom. "Why don't we host a fighting tournament here? Every year. But there will be rules of course. Like no killing and such. We'll call it Gods of Fighting. And only the most gifted fighters will be allowed to participate. The prize will be money of course along with a trophy and a medal", the Son of Thunder suggested. Quickly agreeing to his new friend's plan, Lyon replied, "That sounds good. I'll go along with it. I hope it proves successful", the spear-wielding warrior said. "It will my friend", Raseri replied with a friendly smile. And so from then on, the best of the best fighters in the galaxies would come to Planet Arc to participate in the "Gods of Fighting" tournament that was approved by the planet's new ruler Lyon. The Ultimate Fighting God would then go on to win the tournament for a record of three times in a row. Leaving the planet with the aid of some ships, Raseri crash landed in the Sahara Desert. Emerging from the ship, Raseri was surprised to find that he had landed on such an unexpected location. The Sun's rays were beating against his skin, and the desert sand was sneaking into his shoes every time he took a step. "I'll be home in no time. Should be a piece of cake. I'm so lucky to be this fast", the fierce fighter chuckled. However, before the Mathematician of Combat could get home, he was approached by none other than the All-Father Odin. "Grandson! Good to see you! Isn't this place a little hot for your tastes?", the Asgardian God's astral projection said as it emerged from virtually nowhere. "Oh hey Odin, what is it this time?", Raseri asked as he poured sand out of his shoes. "Oh its Thor again. Your father's gotten all depressed because you're a better fighter than him. I'll tell ya, his belly's gotten even bigger than mine hehehehe!", Odin chuckled. "Ha! I can't wait to see this", Raseri smiled as he joked with his grandfather. Teleporting to Asgard along with his grandson, Odin and Raseri managed to get Thor back into ship after intense training and even more intense convincing.
Though he is a loner and prefers to do things independently, Raseri did eventually join a team, primarily to allow himself to help more people and save more lives. How this came to be was unexpected. It occurred during a random day at Jewel's Bar. Raseri had taken a seat and observed the all of the customers in the bar, there were some truly interesting characters, although others were dull. Soon, a waitress approached him and he ordered a salad and a small glass of water. "A lot of interesting people have been coming here lately", he thought while waiting for his order. Pulling out his iPod, Raseri played "The World Is Yours by Nas" and calmly listened to one of his favorite songs with a tranquil smile on display. Halfway into the song, Raseri spotted the waitress walking towards him with his order. Pausing his iPod and removing his earphones, Raseri gratefully took his order, "Thank you", he smiled looking at the waitress. As he ate his salad and drank his water, a particular person caught his eye. It was a woman. She was outstandingly beautiful and though he does not usually take interest in other people so quickly, there was something different about this woman. With a smile he waved at her which soon drew her attention and she gracefully approached him, taking a seat across his table. The woman introduced herself as "Sayrui". After greeting him, she asked the Nordic Tiger if he was a professional wrestler, naturally this made Raseri chuckle due to the fact that he was a gifted hand to hand combatant while professional wrestlers are more like actors than actual fighters. Politely telling her that he was nothing of the sort, Raseri explained that he was in fact a fighter. Eventually the conversation expanded and Raseri had learned that Sayuri was a geisha. She was probably the most beautiful geisha he had ever seen and though that thought did cross his made, he never truly told her that. The conversation however, was brief and soon Sayuri had to leave and so she did, but not before bidding Raseri farewell. As she left, Raseri began to think, "There's more to her than I can tell right now". The King's hunches would later on be proven to be correct, Sayuri was much more than she said she was. Weeks later, Raseri stumbled upon some information about an emerging team of extraordinary individuals, a team by the name of Ebisu. Walking into the team's headquarters, Raseri was quite surprised to find that the team's leader was none other than Sayuri, the woman he had met some weeks ago at Jewel's Bar. Fortunately, due to having met Sayuri before, Raseri was allowed to join the team as a "Reptile Kamikaze Pilot" the highest rank on the team that does not include leadership. Raseri was truly grateful to be part of Ebisu as it not only enabled him to help more people but it also granted him the opportunity to get to meet new people who possess powers as well.
During his time with the team, Raseri got closer to Sayuri as he deemed her trustworthy. He met the other team members as well such as Callis, Emerald, Jack and Rose. However, it was when Raseri gave Sayuri an important supernatural necklace that he earned her trust and the right to call her by her real name "Harumi". Not only did he give her an impressive piece of jewelry but the necklace granted the wearer the ability to depower Raseri at will which essentially meant that Raseri was entrusting his fate to Harumi. This was perhaps the first time that Raseri hinted towards having a possible crush on the team's leader, but there was no doubt that she was now one of his closest friends. It was at this time that he became very good friends with the knight Callis as well. The Greatest could sense that Callis was feeling a little homesick and so he decided to socialize with the knight. Eventually Raseri became friends with Callis and even told the swordsman that he could call him by his nickname "Ras". Raseri also suggested that one day he and Callis should train together since they might learn something from each other. After hearing about Callis' rage, Raseri offered to help the knight with the problem since he himself has experience with controlling his own rage through meditation. It was during his training session with Callis that Raseri witnessed the knight's enraged state that is triggered by pain etc. Using his knowledge of human-like physiology, Raseri used The Nor Way and the Fist of Life to revert Callis back to his normal state and relinquish him of his pain. Teaching Callis some meditation techniques and eventually offering the swordsman the chance to learn one of his self-taught martial arts, this was when Raseri began to consider Callis as perhaps his best friend on the team. Callis in turn offered to teach Raseri some of his own skills and fighting knowledge as well which Raseri gratefully agreed to. It was when however, a mysterious swordsman by the name of Mugen arrived at Ebisu that Raseri made perhaps his greatest show of trust to Callis. Seeing the knight as his best friend and trustworthy comrade, Raseri told Callis about the feelings he has been harboring for Harumi and informed the knight that he was the first one to be told about Raseri's infatuation with Harumi. Although Callis was indeed happy that Raseri trusted him to such a degree, he was at the same time disappointed as he too had feelings for Harumi but was willing to pave the way for Raseri to which the Ultimate Fighting God replied with a smile, "You're a good friend Callis". It was also at this time that Raseri offered Callis the chance to come to Asgard with him for training, an offer than Callis agreed to. It is interesting to note that Raseri views Ebisu as his second family. It is also at this time that he met a rebellious young woman by the name of Dahlia, he has since befriended her.
Having sacrificed his life during "All Hell Breaks Loose" against the struggle against Newdeath, the Nordic Tiger was ascended to the heavenly realm of Asgard where he was expected to remain for all eternity. However, as fate would have it, it simply was not mighty Raseri's destiny to remain separated from the world he knows as his true home. During his time in Asgard, Raseri grew both emotionally and mentally after helplessly observing the events transpiring on Earth, particularly Harumi's death. He has since realized that his true intention is to return to the world that he loves and after months and months of arguing, the Nordic Tiger managed to persuade his grandfather Odin to restore his life, unfortunately though, due to the divine energies that Raseri had burnt up during his climatic battle against Newdeath, The Greatest has since remained a shell of his former self as far as power goes, his skill however in the art of combat has grown through intense training and practicing. The martial arts grandmaster has returned to Earth with the intention to continue his deeds as a hero which is his true passion. Having missed the presence of his closest friends Crow and Dahlia, Raseri intends to seek them out as soon as possible. Just recently Raseri has engaged his friend Crow in an intense battle after Crow accused him of being an impostor, refusing to believe that his close friend Raseri has returned from the dead. The Nordic Tiger has also made it a point that he must approach Dahlia about his growing feelings for her, feeling that his prior favoring of Harumi to be a mistake on his part, having needed some time to think everything through in Asgard in order to realize this. Whether or not she will accept him remains to be seen however, Raseri has stated that regardless of what happens, he wants to be closer to Dahlia. Raseri also desires to see what is left of Ebisu and hopes to help rebuild whatever is left.
Powers & Abilities
Physical Power: While Raseri was originally quite the physically imposing individual, since his death during an energetic battle against sinister Newdeath, Raseri has since lost a great deal of physical power and in terms of strength, he remains a shell of his former self. Though he is still stronger than the average human, he is not as physically remarkable in regards to his physical strength, durability and speed. His stamina however, retained it's near-limitlessness. Due to physically exhausting the divine energies that were once rampant inside his body, Raseri's fearsome physical power has been greatly reduced. Currently, he is physically strong enough to lift a maximum of 80 tons and has no impressive strength feats to his claim with his current level of strength. Aside from this, the Nordic Tiger's speed was reduced as well however, not the extent of his strength. In the speed department, Raseri managed to retain a decent amount of it considering the immense emphasis he placed on speed and how reliant he was on it. Currently, he can move at a maximum of 30,000 miles per second without the enhancement of kinetic energy in his body. His durability has been decreased to a saddened level. While he was once capable of enduring the harsh environment of the Earth's molten core, Raseri would be utterly destroyed in such conditions in his current physical state. While remaining durable enough that his skin is still bulletproof and resistance to blunt force, a nuclear explosion can render him in a near-death state while his now decreased healing factor, the radiation from such an explosion would possibly poison him however, that remains to be seen. While still immune to the effects of alcohol and most poisons, Raseri is incapable of healing with his past efficiency and speed. Diseases however, can affect him but with much less effectiveness than it would an ordinary person. Fortunately, his stamina was fully retained, enabling Raseri to fight for extended periods of time without suffering the effects of heavy fatigue.
Kinetiske Stil (Kinetic Style): Having discovered the ability to harness kinetic energy for numerous purposes, the Son of Asgard almost universally employs this as a fighting style. Often enhancing himself physically during the most intense of battles, Raseri is capable of increasing both his speed and strength by absorbing the ambient kinetic energy in his environment. Unfortunately, due to his decreased durability, Raseri cannot physically enhance himself to the levels he was previously capable of. Capable of enhancing himself to move at a maximum of 70,000 miles per second, the Nordic Tiger has revealed that doing so is incredibly strenuous now and that if he does exceed that speed, his body will be unable to resist the effects that would impair his body such as the destruction of his muscles, tendons and bones. While still capable of enhancing his strikes to mountain-shattering levels, Raseri cannot exceed this level of striking power due to the same reasons behind his inability to exceed 70,000 miles per second. His secondary power is the ability to literally manipulate kinetic energy however, due to his combat-oriented manner of thought, Raseri channels the power of kinetic energy differently. With an unorthodox manner of harnessing it, the Nordic Tiger can project massive amounts of kinetic energy through punches and kicks, powerful enough to disintegrate entire skyscrapers in seconds. Fortunately, due to his creative way of thinking, Raseri had no need of possessing the knowledge that most energy manipulators possess as he is still fully capable of erecting protective barriers although weaker than before due to the absence of his divine energies enhancing them. Perhaps his last and most dangerous ability, is the power to literally render his opponents devoid of their speed by forcibly removing the kinetic energy from their body with his powers however, because this is such a powerful ability, Raseri can only employ it once a week and therefore, reserves it for the most important of battles.
Skills, Talents etc.
Skills & Talents:
Martial Arts Grandmaster: Having devoted most of his early years to mastering every fighting style he encounters, Raseri is one of the most skilled fighters to ever the walk the face of the Earth, if not the most skilled ever. Not only has he mastered every ancient art of fighting that Asgard has to offer. He has also mastered a multitude of Earth's deadliest fighting styles including Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Ninjitsu, Kalarippayattu, Sambo, Karate, Krav Maga, Wing Chun, Silat, Boxing, Judo, Aikido and much more, if not every single one of them. Raseri is skilled at delivering both external and internal damage. He has developed his own unique martial arts that can focus only on internal damage, and others focusing on external damage. Raseri can switch to a very deadly martial art he himself created, he calls it "The Nor Way" and it focuses on delivering severe internal damage. Most of its techniques are instantly fatal to human beings. The Nor Way has techniques that can even kill very durable opponents in a single strike. This style specializes in pressure points etc. With this martial art, Raseri is capable of poking an opponent on the chest, causing his chest to suddenly burst open. He has unique fighting techniques such as punches that causes his opponent's heads or arms to literally explode upon contact with his fist. As well as kicks that can completely destroy every single vein in an opponent's body. He also has needle-like strikes that he can use to cause many of his opponent's veins to simultaneously split in half, this affects even superhumans with immense durability. However, Raseri also has styles that deliver mostly external damage. He does this by using a large amount of kinetic energy when he fights. He can deliver a jab that will completely knock an opponent's head off, or a kick that will literally split opponents in half. It is not wise to block punches or kicks from Raseri whenever he is using an external style, because even superhumanly durable opponents have had their bones completely shattered when they attempted to block Raseri's strikes. This effectively makes him one of the deadliest fighters to ever walk the face of the Earth. He is also skilled at using various types of weaponry. Raseri's combat skill is so vast that he can create entirely new martial arts style on the spot through simple observation of animals or the elements. He has done this on certain occasions. Knowing every single pressure point in the body, Raseri can internally destroy nearly all of his opponents. However, The Nor Way does not only focus on pressure points, but it also focuses on striking mysterious vital points of mystical origin in the human body. Known as "The Ultimate Fighting God", Raseri is arguably the greatest fighter of all time. Raseri has recently developed a new fighting style that focuses on the manipulation of the life energy in one's system. This fighting style is called "Fist of Life". It is a flowing and swift fighting style that blocks the incalculable number of life energy holes that transport the mysterious energy around the body, enabling Raseri to accomplish numerous affects such as instant death, immense pain, great pleasure, mutilation, and much more. However the greatest technique that the Fist of Life grants its user is the ability to press the most hidden and difficult vital point in the body. This point if pressed will exponentially increase the user's power but it will eliminate Raseri's immortality and make Raseri terminal, and eventually he will die after 30 days after using the technique. So far there is no known way to stop this from happening once one uses the technique. This technique is called "Enlightenment" as it enlightens the user's insight on martial arts as well, in addition to making them much stronger. This can only be used once and therefore it will require a very important occasion for Raseri to use it. The Fist of Life also enables Raseri to manipulate his own life energy and render himself immune to pressure point attacks, which basically means that he is immune to all forms of internal martial arts attacks. The Fist of Life is different from The Nor Way as The Nor Way causes immense pain to the victim while The Fist of Life is a gentle and fluid style that gives the victim a feeling of immense euphoria and pleasure before death.
Expert Battle Strategist: Raseri is an excellent battle strategist and tactician that is fully capable of coming up with very effective strategies in the heat of battle.

Even though his fighting career is far from over, Raseri has already accomplished nearly everything there is for a fighter to accomplish, not to mention he has broken countless records and has defeated numerous champions and the best fighters of this generation. However, he is mostly known for his unique fighting styles. The Nor Way, Kinetiske Stil, and The Fist of Life have reached a legendary status among other fighters due to their effectiveness, complexity and distinction. He is widely regarded among former fighters, current fighters, fighting commentators, fans and managers to be one of the best and most accomplished fighters in history, if not the very best ever.

Aside from his emphasis on skill, control and power, Raseri is known for his incomparable speed. Capable of fighting at such speed and precision that it is almost impossible to see any of his movements when he truly wills it that he is repeatedly called "The Fastest Fighter Alive" due to his incredible ability to fight exactly at the speed of light and he can potentially grow faster as his training continues. Raseri himself speaks highly of his speed, noticing it as one of his best qualities. However, it is his overwhelming physical power that has become his trademark along with his unbelievable speed. Due being undefeated and winning nearly all of his fights via KO, Raseri is one of the most feared fighters alive, if not the most feared. He is highly respected and feared among countless fighters who are usually too intimidated to challenge for titles at times. Although he is known for fighting at the higher more advanced fighting arenas and competitions across countless galaxies away from the Earth since he is too strong to fight professionally on Earth, he is well known on Earth as one of the greatest fighters ever due to his countless record breaking feats and accomplishments. Even legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and mixed martial artist Fedor Emelianenko have spoken very highly of Raseri. With Fedor saying, "He is the best. And he knows it". Being a master of single fighting style to exist as well as creating three of his own which have grown to become the most dangerous and powerful fighting styles in the world, Raseri is the most complete fighter to ever grace a ring, capable of effortlessly adapting to any opponent. After winning numerous fighting tournaments on Earth as well, Raseri is know undoubtedly acknowledge as the greatest fighter that the world has ever seen.

This has brought him much fame and he has since become a global fighting superstar to many due to his achievements and records.
Talented Rapper & Musician: Although his other qualities are usually overshadowed by his unmatched fighting prowess, Raseri is an extremely talented rapper. It comes as a surprise to most but he is very very good. He's never truly put too much effort into his rapping abilities but he is very good. Raseri's outstanding lyrical technique have drawn comparisons to the famous rapper Lupe Fiasco. He is not only an extremely talented lyricist but is also described as being a master of the flow, being capable of rapping fast and slow. Raseri is also known for being particularly skilled at storytelling when rapping, using a more conversational style of rapping that not too many rappers can use. He has complex rhyme schemes, humorous subjects, serious subjects and more. He is known to use multisyllabic rhymes and complex rhythms.

Aside from this, he is a very talented musician and is very good guitar player, his skill with the instrument is such that he can easily play multi-neck guitars.
Godly Good Looks: This is perhaps the only thing about himself that Raseri is unaware of. The Nordic Tiger has no idea that he is one of the most beautiful people to ever walk the face of the Earth. His most distinguishing feature is his beautiful flawless silky hair. Aside from this, Raseri absolutely always radiates pleasant odors, facts that even Thor has taken note of. In Thor's words, "That boy never smells bad, even when he sweats! And his hair.. is even better than mine". Raseri is known for having a very handsome face with flawless skin. His physique has been described as "god-like" and chiseled from bronze by the gods. His eyes are also described as beautiful blue pools that can be used to look into the cloudless blue sky. Raseri's physical appearance is almost always instantly noticed by most of the women he encounters, even the men at times are speechless. Odin considers it extremely humorous that Raseri is unaware of the fact that he is considered flawlessly handsome.
Wealth: Being an undefeated professional fighter that participates in galactic tournaments around the universe and also fights on his home planet Earth as well, Raseri has quite a lot of money that he gained from fights. Holding countless championship belts, trophies and medals, Raseri has broken countless records as well which have earned him even more money. He has an estimated net worth of $800 million dollars. He donates a good deal of his money to charities and causes. However, due to how fast he can earn money due to his amazing fighting record and ability to win countless matches so quickly, he is always earning money. Despite being very very rich, Raseri has never once boasted about his money ever and his confidence only radiates when he speaks of his fighting skills.
Unique Fighting Styles
The Nor Way:
This is perhaps Raseri's deadliest fighting style. This fighting style makes use of his opponent's pressure points and other more unknown vital points. The power of this art lies in precision and speed. There is no requirement for physical strength. This is the best fighting style that Raseri can use against extremely durable opponents. Striking one of the opponent's pressure points can result in any number of different effects. Each pressure point has at least two effects that can take place depending on how Raseri makes contact with them. For example, one pressure point may cause the opponent's head to violently split in half in a bloody mess if pressed, however if say rubbed, then the pressure point will perhaps disable the victim's legs. The primary effects that result from striking the pressure points are quite violent. It can either cause the victim to explode violently, have their fingers suddenly cut off from their hand, cause their blood vessels to violently burst open, all of their bones to shatter, excessive tissue damage, contracting the opponent's muscles into snapping their spines, causing their head to violently erupt in a bloody mess and much much more. It can also cause the victim to be controlled involuntarily or incapacitated or decapitated. The Nor Way requires immense patience to master and perfect as one is required to know every single pressure point and mysterious vital points in the body of his opponents. The advantage that this fighting style has that other internal martial arts do not, is that it will affect even those with an alien biology. Why? Because this fighting style does not simply focus on the pressure points that are found in the human and divine body. It also strikes mysterious vital points in the opponent's body that are not actually pressure points but are unknown ones that apparently exist in any being that is even partially physical. To master this martial art, one is required to have immense spiritual calmness and mental clarity. Raseri usually meditates as he stresses that The Nor Way requires meditation to maintain the discipline and mental clarity needed to precisely strike the points in his opponent's body. The Nor Way has a unique fighting stance that places great importance on speed and precision. This is because one will be unable to strike an opponent's pressure points if they miss even a little bit and if they are too slow then they will not be fast enough to hit the opponent before they dodge. Raseri can strike his opponent's points by simply poking them with his index finger to kicking and punching them. It is much easier to strike the points by poking, and it is extremely difficult to strike the points by kicking, punching, elbowing etc. because one must hit with such precision that it is nearly impossible. However, fortunately, Raseri is an absolute master at his martial art and is capable of striking the points how he pleases, even by using kinetic energy to strike them. The Nor Way affects opponents regardless of durability because one cannot strengthen their pressure points etc. just like they cannot make their atoms more durable, they are natural weak points of the body that cannot be enhanced at all. However force fields etc. can protect others from having their points struck. This fighting style also enables Raseri to "see" the weak points in objects, allowing him to break and bend objects without even using his superhuman strength but by manipulating the weak points in the objects. This is an incredibly difficult fighting style to master as the user is required to remember every single point in a body by heart, and there are over 800 points. Raseri has memorized them by heart and they are now in his muscle memory. This style is impossible to copy simply by observation as one is required to know every single 902 points that are human, divine, mystical and alien. Raseri is such a fearsome pressure point master that he is for all intents and purposes immune to pressure point attacks because he can change the flow of his blood and life energy to re-position all of his pressure points.
The Fist of Life:
Raseri has recently developed a new fighting style that focuses on the manipulation of life energy. This is the life energy that flows through every living creature. This energy or force is carried inside the body by "Life Holes". These holes can be manipulated if physically contacted with properly. Tapping, pressing, rubbing etc. will result in different effects on each hole in the body. Raseri can cause instant death on an opponent by instantly poking all of their life holes which will block the passage of life energy across the body thereby eliminating the real source of life. Blocking one hole etc. or by striking different life holes result in different effects such as mutilation, immense pain and more. The Fist of Life is a much more gentle fighting style in comparison to the much deadlier and merciless fighting style The Nor Way. One of the big differences between The Fist of Life and The Nor Way is that The Fist of Life is more like a gentle fist than rapid stabbing motions etc that violently pick apart the opponent. The Fist of Life uses the opponent's force against them with great grace and dexterity. It is a much more fluid, swift and peaceful fighting style. This is quite an elegant fighting style that shows Raseri's more merciful side. The Fist of Life is a great defensive art against fighting styles like The Nor Way. When using The Fist of Life, internal martial arts have absolutely no effect on Raseri because when using this style, Raseri is capable of using his life energy to block all of his vital points, thereby rendering him immune to any form of internal attacks of that manner. And unlike The Nor Way, instead of forcing his opponent to experience unbearable pain, The Fist of Life gives the opponent a great feeling of euphoria and pleasure when an attack is successful and before death, therefore it is a very deceiving art. It can be called an art of deception as opponents will not have a single clue of their future deaths when facing this style due to the feeling of pleasure they experience. However, the greatest technique that this fighting styles grants is called "Enlightenment" because it enlightens not only the user's mind and spirit but it also gives them the absolute insight in the art of hand to hand combat and martial arts, therefore turning the user into a great philosopher. The Enlightenment technique can only be used once. And it is used by precisely pressing the most difficult point in the body which is located on the chest. This technique will not only enlighten the user but it will increase their power exponentially but it comes at the cost of making Raseri terminal as once one uses the technique, they will die after 30 days. It is unknown if this technique's negative effects can be reversed. The Fist of Life is also a healing art and it can heal certain physical and psychological wounds. With this art, Raseri is capable of restoring a person's memory, eyesight, voice etc. He can also use it to calm down an individual who is stressed or angered etc. Its greatest healing ability is to save a dying person from the clutches of death by giving them another chance at life by precisely striking all their "Life Holes" which will completely heal all physical and mental wounds. Unfortunately this healing ability does not work on the user of the art. This fighting style requires great spirituality and a good heart, therefore not everyone can use it. Evil individuals for one are incapable of using this martial art due to the simple fact that they are evil and therefore have a tainted spirit that will not allow them to use this fighting style. An absolute master of the art, Raseri has great spiritual insight in martial arts and his good heart enables him to use it in combat very effectively. Raseri can draw out some of his life energy from his Life Holes by using this fighting style, by spinning rapidly he can generate a large sphere of life energy that deflects any attack regardless of its mass or power, however this wastes a lot of energy.
This is a fighting style that boasts incredible fighting power. It is one that meets force with greater force. This is clearly a hard external style of fighting which is different from Raseri's two other unique fighting styles. With this fighting style, Raseri overpowers his opponents with immense force, often overwhelming them with his unparalleled physical power. The Kinetiske Stil fighting style enables the Ultimate Fighting God to break nearly any barrier with extraordinary physical force. By channeling kinetic energy into his powerful and heavy strikes, Raseri can enhance the power of his punches, kicks etc. by imbuing his body with immense amounts of invisible kinetic energy. This fighting style usually takes a heavy and intimidating stance. It is great for offensive and defensive purposes. With this fighting style, Raseri is not only capable of enhancing his body's physical strength and the sheer force of his strikes, but it also allows him to effortlessly cut through his opponents. With swift yet powerful kicks, elbows, chops and punches, the Son of Thunder can shoot sharp invisible slashes of kinetic energy that can cut through nearly anything. He can also project the kinetic energy ahead of him as an immense force to inflict injury before he strikes. And by simply flexing his muscles, Raseri can generate powerful bursts of kinetic energy that can disintegrate entire skyscrapers. The power of this fighting style lies in movement and the gathering of kinetic energy. Raseri can also use this as a defensive art by hardening his muscles through flexing them and radiating a thin but extremely hard invisible layer of concentrated kinetic energy around his entire body which makes him exceptionally more durable and it renders him immune to vital point striking due to the kinetic energy layer. This style focuses on the delivery of external damage as Raseri usually cuts his opponents to bits with slashes or literally punches holes through them with sheer force and brutality. Kinetiske Stil can be used to effortlessly shatter the bones of his opponents as well as strong shields. Kinetiske Stil puts great importance on hard and heavy explosive movements.
Is a fighting style that Raseri has dubbed "The Most Complete Combat Art". It's name "Total Fighting" gives a strong hint on what its capabilities. Total Fighting is a combination of every single fighting style in the world along with the Nordic Tiger's own self-taught martial arts. Because of this, it is rather complex to learn and employ in an actual battle for beginners. Raseri has spent years practicing and perfecting Total Fighting to the point that it is now worthy of it's name. Total Fighting is perhaps the most mentally and physically demanding fighting style to have ever existed. Why? Because Total Fighting requires the user to be defending and attacking simultaneously, and this requires a large amount of physical effort as well as mental effort to learn how to apply fighting tactics. The fighter must always be defending, but must also always be attacking. Though it uses every fighting art in Raseri's arsenal, its primary components are Kinetiske Stil, The Nor Way, and The Fist of Life. Total Fighting combines the powerful defense of Kinetiske Stil, with the fluid and fast countering and dodging of the Fist of Life and the speedy and deadly attacking prowess of The Nor Way. It takes a great deal of skill to master as one is required to master all of the fighting styles in the world. Total Fighting also focuses on tactical interchange as well. It's primary components may also shift roles as Total Fighting states that every fighting style can take the role of another fighting style. Kinetiske Stil's immense attacking power can be combined with the Fist of Life's fluid and power-nullifying parrying and blocks and The Nor Way's speedy and fast-paced dodging and countering. A great tactical mind is required to use Total Fighting as one must know in which situation should a particular fighting system be best fitted for. Being the creator and only master of the fighting style, Raseri has stated that he only uses Total Fighting in the most dire situations. Though this system is largely unknown as of yet, the Ultimate Fighting God has demonstrated it to legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, famous martial artist Chuck Norris and the feared mixed martial artist Fedor Emelianenko who have all praised the system of fighting. Calling it very difficult to master but a pleasure for a master. Ali and Emelianenko praised Raseri as the greatest and most complete fighter ever. Chuck Norris called the King of Fists an artist in the art of combat, capable of painting any picture he wants with his fists. Ali and Fedor however, disagreed and likened Raseri to a mathematician in the science of combat, capable of calculating anything and fighting from virtually any angle. He is constantly hailed as one of the most intelligent fighters of all time with great vision and creativity as no weakness, even the smallest goes unnoticed in Raseri's eyes. Some Raseri fans have given him the nickname "The Ultimate Lord & God of Fighting". The Greatest is also known for having the most beautiful and intelligent mind for fighting. He has stated that Total Fighting is not simply a style, but a fighting philosophy as well.
Though many people view fighting as a violent and barbaric act that is frowned upon, Raseri however, has a different view. Instead of the usual brutal and violent views on fighting, Raseri views it differently. To Raseri, fighting is an act that should primarily be used for self-defense. An example of this is that the Nordic Tiger does not teach anyone one of his fighting styles. It depends on the student's reasons for wanting to learn it, and to prevent anyone from using lies to coerce him into teaching one of his styles, Raseri has learned to use the power of chi to detect lies. Hand to hand combat is viewed as both an art and a science by Raseri, and he makes it clear with his two styles "Kinetiske Stil" and "The Fist of Life". The Fist of Life has a more artistic and fluid movements while Kinetiske Stil is a more technical and militaristic style. Raseri has also stated that fighting should be employed for protection of oneself and others as well. He believes that fighting is to be used only when one wishes to protect others, defend oneself, and when they are fighting for a cause. However, he himself has never stated that fighting for enjoyment should be frowned upon. Raseri himself enjoys fighting and will usually fight for enjoyment as well, but he will never fight for enjoyment if it puts innocent people in danger. Raseri uses fighting for his heroic deeds and to fight for the wellbeing of others and to protect the innocent. Raseri also fights professionally and has built up quite a reputation for himself, he however has said that he does not fight professionally for the amount of money he is paid since he isn't materialistic, Raseri has stated that he fights professionally to fight the greatest fighters of his generations as most of them fight professionally. Raseri has said that for a fighter to truly progress, they must know the true meaning of fighting. He believes that for a fighter to succeed, they must be aware of the other styles that exist. Raseri strongly believes that borrowing different theories and aspects from other fighting styles allow him to discover their weaknesses and their strengths so that he may improve existing styles or create entirely new styles that borrow many aspects from other martial arts. Raseri puts a great deal of importance in meditation, stating that it calms the mind and spirit. These are his exact words "Meditation is a must for any fighter. It calms the mind and the spirit. The calmness allows for clear thinking that is useful in battle. It also cleanses the spirit of corruption". However, Raseri has also made it a point that too much meditation is bad for a fighter, "Too much meditation doesn't make you a good fighter. Meditation is used to achieve peace of mind. A serenity and tranquility in the mind and spirit. Basically it calms you down and gives you time to think and expand your thought, and even transcend onto mystical planes. But, too much meditation makes you too calm. Too much calmness will you make you fall asleep in battle. You'll be too calm to be in the moment. You'll be getting hit, and you won't even know it. Because you'll be on your own imaginary world". Uniquely enough, the Ultimate Fighting God also says that fighting is a healing art. His newly developed martial art known as "The Fist of Life" is an example of this. The style focuses on the striking of Life Holes which are points in the body of every living thing that carry the energy of life around the body, this energy has historically been called chi, chakra etc. Life Holes can be used to achieve devastating effects, but they can also be used positively. Raseri being the only master of a style that exploits Life Holes, has discovered that he can strike them in specific manners to achieve different effects, effects that heal the opponent. This has allowed Raseri to use this style as a healing art. Capable of healing both physical and psychological wounds, Raseri can achieve various effects such as healing broken bones, cleansing one's mind, erasing memories, healing wounds, restoring eyesight, removing eyesight, eliminating physical and mental pain, destroy illnesses and even reverse death, but unfortunately and much more. Unfortunately though, he can use this healing art on himself. Raseri also believes that being humble when fighting does not help, as one must have confidence in their skills and styles. He has stated that to be a winner, one must be confident, and that one is humble when they have lost. "Being humble doesn't bring any benefit in fighting. Confidence does. You have to be confident in your abilities and your skills. To be a winner you must be confident, because humility is for those who have tasted defeat. Be confident if you expect to win. Humility is for those who expect defeat, and don't believe in their skills. They believe in the skills of their opponents. I'm not telling you to be cocky, I'm just telling you not to be humble. Be confident". Those words explains his belief perfectly. Raseri has also stated that there is a counter for every specific style. Power can be countered by fluid and internal styles, fluid and internal styles can be countered by fast and quick-paced styles, and fast styles can be overcome by overwhelming power.
One of Raseri's most interesting pets, Voldsom is a rather large male Asgardian tiger. Being clearly larger than any tiger on Earth, Voldsom is the size of an adult male polar bear and has quite the muscular build. Voldsom has a rather menacing and intimidating appearance. Being exceptionally large and muscular, the mystical tiger's teeth are quite large and excessively sharp. Perhaps Voldsom's most striking feature is that it has menacing red eyes that may glow when it is angered. Voldsom's name says it all, meaning "fierce" in Norwegian, it describes the tiger's behavior when fighting. Some of Raseri's friends even joke that Voldsom is the one who truly deserves to be called "The Nordic Tiger". Being an Asgardian tiger, Voldsom is exceptionally powerful in physical terms and is capable of moving a ten ton boulder with a single swipe of its paw. It is also remarkably durable, Voldsom is capable of effortlessly withstanding high caliber bullets without sustaining any wound at all, in fact bullets can hardly get his attention at all. Though he is indeed a physical powerhouse, Voldsom is incredibly fast, capable of moving at ten thousand miles per second when fighting, Voldsom can run at a maximum of fifty thousand miles per second. The tiger's sharp claws can slice and rip through even reinforced titanium like butter and its teeth effortlessly pierce through most solid material. However, Voldsom is unique for possessing the ability of telepathy. Voldsom communicates with Raseri telepathically and it only communicates with those it trusts. Despite his intimidating appearance, Voldsom is not dangerous unless one is an enemy. It is a calm and composed tiger, however it usually sports a serious and stern facial expression. Voldsom is ridiculously loyal to Raseri and sees its owner as its own brother. Voldsom is not above sacrificing its life for its owner and it is quite protective of The Greatest. Voldsom was not a gift from Odin or anything like that, Raseri rescued it when it was just a cub from some frost giants in Asgard. Voldsom is perhaps Raseri's best friend, they share an unbreakable bond with each other. Voldsom is very intelligent for an animal and it possesses the intelligence of an ordinary human being. Fully capable of speech using telepathy, Voldsom is very easy to understand. However, when not using telepathy, it communicates like any other tiger. Voldsom's most unique feature is his thick white main on the spine of his neck. It gives him a more intimidating appearance as it makes him look larger.
