Fan-Fic » Ultimate Hero Episode A: The Bravest Vs The Angriest

Previous: http://www.animevice.com/forums/fan-fic/1517/ultimate-hero-episode-17-sunrise/349217/#1

The world of Gaea sprawls out seemingly endlessly. From fields of green to mountains topped with clouds, to temple ruins scattered about the landscape. Animals are far and few, and humans are even fewer. However, the most well known inhabitants of the world are the gods which rule it.

One such a god, Asura, strolls through the land taking in the serenity. He is tall and muscular with spiky white hair, dark metallic skin with black markings running over his body, and metal covering his arms, and partially exposed feet. He wears only black pants with hot rod flames running up the side, and he has an incredibly strong air about him. He stops to observe a flower gently blowing in the breeze with glowing white pupils.

Asura: What is this feeling? It's as if the Mantra itself is acting bizarre. Something's out there...

He sighs lightly and is about to continue on his way when a shockwave rips through the air. Surprised he looks around for the source. The shockwave gets more intense until the air starts twisting into a vortex. It then opens up into a disc of neon energy giving off electrical discharge. The sky above turns dark with strangely colored thunderstorms, clouds moving quickly and erratically, and the wind whipping around violently.

Asura looks on in awe as a single jolt of blue light rockets out of the wormhole. It then hovers in the air for a moment before dispersing to reveal man clad in strange blue armor and a red cape. He doesn't move, he only scans the surrounding area. At the sight Asura grits his teeth for a moment and then barks out from below.

Asura: HEY, YOU!

The stranger looks down and spots Asura. He gets a smile on his face and descends to the ground to address him.

Stranger: Hi! Uh, say, could you help me out? (Wow... he looks unique...)

Asura: I don't know what you are but your presence is disturbing the Mantra. Leave. Now!

Stranger: Wow, really? Sure, but right after I find my friend. We were kinda having it out and suddenly this weird portal opened up and sucked him in. I managed to open it up again somehow and it lead me to this place, so he must be here somewhere. I have to look around.

Asura: If that's the case then I'll find him. You're going back.

Stranger: Thanks but no thanks, pal. I'll handle it.

Asura: I said leave!

Stranger: And I said I'm staying!!

Asura's temper began to boil over. He clenched his fists and stepped forward.

Asura: Fine, then I'll make you!

The stranger didn't back down an inch.

Hero of Earth

Ultiman: Haha, this should be interesting!

The two combatants squared off. Asura glared intensely at Ultiman just as the he did the same. The two inched sized each other up, inching around each other slowly. The only sound was that of the portal crackling in the background. They finally stopped moving for a moment.

Then in the next moment, the two pushed off as hard as they could and were speeding toward one another. They both threw a monstrous punch.


As their fists met, a wave of force shot out cracking the ground around them. The two then brought their remaining hands forward and their fists clashed again. After they recoiled their fists, Asura then made a wild swing at Ultiman's head. The hero quickly ducked and then followed up with an uppercut. Asura sidestepped and came back with a body shot. The hero attempted to dash away only to have his leg caught by the god's metallic hand. He then grabbed Ultiman by his helmet and slammed his face into the ground. He then threw down a heavy punch at Ultiman's head. However, he managed to catch it at the last second and hold it back. Asura then grabbed Ultiman's arm with his free hand and ripped him up from the ground.

@@@ X

He then proceeded to swing him around viciously several times.

Asura: Now, get out of here!!!

Asura then released him. The hero flew toward the portal at high speed. Just as he was about to fly through, he was able to fire a burst of energy at it, causing it to flux and collapse leaving nothing behind. The hero flew past the place where the portal used to be and continued on until he met some ruined buildings and crashed through. The hero sat in the debris trying to gather himself.

Ultiman: (Damn, this guy is strong! What kind of monster is he?)

Asura approached the crash site, pushing fallen pillars and boulders out of his way while looking for his opponent.

Ultiman: (Looks like it's time to show him what kind of monster I can be!)

Ultiman reached down to chest plate and released one of his seals. From his position, Asura saw a large blue surge of light burst out from the rubble. The ground shook and could hear the hero's voice as well. Suddenly, he shot up into the air. Asura scowled at his opponent for a moment before charging into battle once again. However, before he could get with in striking distance Ultiman sped toward him, catching him off-guard and landed a solid blow on Asura's face. He then followed up with a body blow, a leg sweep, finally punting Asura into the air. Asura flew for meters until he regained composure.

He then soared back down toward his opponent.


He and Ultiman then clashed in the air. As gravity began to take effect, the two plummeted back down to the ground. However, just before they landed Ultiman forced his way on top. He then forced Asura into a pile driver and slammed him into the ground. The hero dismounted, leaving his opponent in a small crater.

Ultiman: So, had enough yet?

The next moment, Asura had risen up, his anger elevated even further. He threw a flurry of punches at Ultiman. However, he dodged each one and managed to catch both of his fists, holding him to a stand still.

Ultiman: Ha! I hate to break it to you but you're all out of hands--

Shut Ultiman Up


As he spoke, a third metal arm jutted out and landed heavily on the hero's cheek, even making a ripple on his skin.



Three more arms then appeared, crashing into the hero's chin, chest, and abdomen. Asura was now bearing his teeth as he forced his fists deeper into his opponent's body before finally pushing him off completely. The hero went sliding back for several meters until he stopped. He held his stomach and groaned in pain. He looked up to find that Asura had sprouted 4 extra fully metal arms from his side and back and had a deep red aura flowing from him.

Six-Armed Vajra Asura

Ultiman: What kind of power is that? It's definitely not like mine. But either way, it's no joke... Alright, now the fight really begins!

The two sped over to each other and clashed once again. Asura threw a storm of punches at Ultiman who managed to dodge and throw back just as many.


The two were moving incredibly fast and sparks began to fly as each one barely grazed the other with attacks. As they continued Ultiman began to speak.

Ultiman: Hey, I never got your name! You can call me Ultiman by the way!

Asura: … Asura.

Ultiman: WHOA! You mean like... the god Asura?!?! That's so cool!

Asura: Do NOT call me a god!!!

Asura's temper flared and he threw a strong punch forward. The hero did the same, only to have their punches met head on and send the two flying backward.

Ultiman: Alright Asura, let's see how you handle this!

The hero put his hands out in front of him.

Ultiman: Now, FREEZE!!!

The area around the two began to invert in color as time slowed down. However, Asura roared and the time field shattered easily leaving behind a heavy electrical discharge.

Ultiman: I see. Whatever that energy of his is, it negates my Hyperion somehow. My suit can't even begin to analyze it this stuff. And it's everywhere. If I make a move like that again, there could be a bad reaction--



Asura threw a punch at the air and a fist made of energy shot out and straight at Ultiman. He managed to dodge just in time and throw a blast of his own back.


Asura leapt out of the way and returned fire ten fold. Ultiman flew and evaded the barrage coming at him, making sure to fire back as well. As the blasts collided and flew past, they exploded into shimmering showers of light. Asura finally stopped to charge up a blast and Ultiman did the same. The two then released their blasts simultaneously.


The silver fist and the blue blast collided and exploded violently, causing a small quake through the area.

Smoke engulfed the area for a moment until the two lunged at each other with full force, clearing the air away. At extremely close quarters, the two engaged in hand to hand melee once more. Asura managed to grab Ultiman by his shoulders. He then rammed his knee into the hero's gut several time. However, Ultiman was able to break free and retaliate with an energy charged punch. There was a small explosion and Asura was sent flying at near sonic speed backward. Ultiman quickly followed suit and beat him to the destination, then kicking Asura upward toward the sky. Again he raced Asura on the way up readied a know-down. However, Asura grabbed Ultiman by his leg and yanked him down, sending both of them back to the ground. They plummeted to the ground. However, inches before they hit, they two pushed off of each other and flew backward. They then landed on the ground and finally came to a stop, only to lunge back at each other immediately.


Ultiman threw a punch which Asura blocked and then countered. Ultiman parried and trapped on of the arms under his own.

► YY

He then grabbed hold of another and blocked a third with his knee.


A forth came at Ultiman's face, only to be caught between his teeth by the wrist.


Asura's joints could be heard creaking as he violently grappled with the hero. Their eyes met in a blaze of fury just before Asura used his remaining two arms thrash Ultiman, sending him flying. Ultiman regained his composer quickly and managed to land on his feet. The two fighters were panting. However, their eyes were still locked in combat. Suddenly, a voice breaks the silence.

???: Well, well, well... what's going on over here?

The two quickly glanced over to a still standing pillar to find a lone figure watching them from afar underneath the churning sky.

???: Hehehe!



The lone figure smiles at the two calmly but full of malice. His head is covered in a tinted visor and his body is wrapped in a tattered cape.

Envoy of Chaos


He tears his cape off to reveal bright red armor underneath with yellow and black trimmings. He then hops down from the pillar and vanishes just before touching the ground only to reappear behind Ultiman, leaning on his shoulder. The hero doesn't move.

Firo: Hey, Matty! It's good to see ya. Thought I lost you back there!

Ultiman: Firo! I knew you'd be here! We have to get back to our world.

Firo: Hmm, Who's your friend? He look strong. He was giving you of all people a hard time. As a matter of fact, I kinda wanna see what he's got too.

Asura: I'll take you both on!!!

Ultiman: No! I got what I came here for. So we have no reason to fight anymore.

Firo: Speak for yourself! I got into to it with a couple fat and shiny losers earlier but all they did was bore me. You however, seem more my speed! I can't wait to redo that paint job of yours tin man!

Asura's rage boiled over once again.



His aura began to overflow once again as he powered up.

◄ ►

Then suddenly, from behind him, countless golden arms sprung out and fanned around him. They then receded and combined into two giant gauntlets on Asura's arms. Hovering behind him, a large and intricate golden halo had materialized on his back momentarily before vanishing into thin air.

Asura: If you think you're strong enough, then BRING IT!

Everyone got into their fighting stance. The fighting was about to resume when without warning a large wave of bright blue energy ran through the battlefield, slicing it cleanly in two.

???: I found you!

Astonished everyone looked over to see something flying overhead. A small motorcycle like vehicle, the Lone Wolf, carrying a single passenger soared by. As it passed over the battlefield, the rider jumped off and descended to the ground, landing a few paces in front of Asura. It was being similar to Asura with dark metallic skin, long black hair, a flowing fabric garb, and a gold visor covering his face. He stepped between the fighters, shifting his gaze from Asura back to the newcomers.

The Noble Warrior

Asura: Yasha?!

Yasha: Asura, always the lively one. And it appears you found the source of the disturbance.

Firo: What do we have here?

Yasha: I do not know where you came from, but your presence is disrupting the peace of this land. Balance must be restored!

Asura: Stay out of this! I'll end it.

Yasha: Do not be so reckless Asura. Besides as a protector of this world, this is my fight as well.

Asura: Tch!

Asura steps forward to Yasha's side. They stand opposite Ultiman and Firo.

Asura: Don't get in my way!

Yasha: It will be just as the old days were.

Firo: I guess this could be fun too. How bout it, Matty?

Ultiman: (Sigh) Sure, why not? Let's party!!!

All of the combatants squared up once more. The air became heavy with red and blue energy causing several shots of electrical discharge jolting around.



They then all charged forward into the fray. Ultiman and Asura crossed arms while Yasha and Firo feet collided head on. The combined force of the attacks ripped through the air, decimating everything in the area, leaving only an open field.

Asura threw a flurry of vicious punches at Ultiman who blocked and countered just as quickly. Firo and Yasha traded precise blows at incredible speed. The fighters brawled in close proximity as bursts of Mantra and Hyperion mixed and clashed as well.

Ultiman: Firo! Be careful! These guys are unreal!

Firo: Or have you just become weak?!

Ultiman: Jerk!!

Ultiman continued to battle with Asura. He finally managed land a solid body blow. However, Asura didn't budge an inch. Ultiman was astonished.

► ▼ Y

Asura then brought his fists down on Ultiman's shoulders. He quivered under the force and sank into the ground.

▲ B

Asura then uppercuted the hero's abdomen. The force of the attack lifted him off the ground. Asura then followed up with his other fist.



The jets on the back of Asura's gauntlets ignited with a blast of red Mantra. The two shot up into the air at incredible speed and rocketed up into the sky and out of sight. The two fighters soared through the upper atmosphere and away from the planet.

In the distance, it could be seen that the moon was shattered into pieces, it's core long gone cold. Asura and Ultiman flew toward a chunk of it. However, Ultiman finally got angry and broke free of his opponent's clutch. He managed to push off and then spin around, landing a brutal roundhouse kick on Asura's face. He went spinning off into the distance before stopping himself. Ultiman then clapped his hands together, causing a bright light to shine from between them.

Ultiman: Transfer System: PROTON BLADE!!!

He then opened them to find a large blue buster sword had materialized between. He grabbed it by the hilt and swung it around, giving off a waft of blue energy. He then pointed it at Asura who only readied himself for another round.

Asura: COME ON!!!

Ultiman took off at high speed toward Asura who rocketed right back at him.

Back on the ground, Firo and Yasha zoomed around the battlefield, throwing forceful punches and kicks.


They both threw a mighty kick, coming to a standstill finally.

Firo: Not half bad, pretty boy!

Yasha: You enjoy the heat of battle quite a bit. I was trained by a warrior like you...

Firo: Oh my, what a fascinating story.

The two broke away from each other. Firo then extended his arms. His hands began to glow violet. When they dimmed down, they had turned into terribly sharp and jagged black claws. He got close to the ground. He got a psychotic look in his eye and a twisted smile before his mouth guard covered his face. The sound of his breathing became shallow and unsettling.

Firo: Now come on, let's go WILD!!!

Yasha readied himself. In an instant, Firo vanished in a blur of red and the ground shook with his take off. He sped toward Yasha and lunged with his his claw.

▼ ► Y

Yasha vanished with a blue streak and reappeared beside Firo retaliating with a chop from the side. Firo vanished once again and Yasha took off after him. Their fight was elevated to a new level as the two zipped around the area, stopping for only seconds at a time to trade blows. Yasha swiped the air with his hand and a blue wave of energy surged out at Firo who cut through it with his claw. The two remaining masses of energy flew past Firo and into the distance, decimating a large rock formation behind them. Firo dashed at Yasha once more. However, Yasha held his ground.


He waited until Firo was within striking distance before he shot out his palms forcing them into Firo's chest and breaking Firo's momentum completely. Firo flipped over Yasha and skidded across the ground behind him. However, he quickly got back to his feet. Yasha turned to face him.

Firo's eyes flashed red for a split second before the area around Yasha exploded violently. However he dashed out of the way an instant earlier.

► ◄ ▼

Firo followed Yasha with his eyes everywhere he went, causing the explosions to pursue him both near, fat on the air, and even overshot onto distant mountains

Yasha successfully avoided Firo's gaze until he gave up the assault. However, Firo simply chuckled and then took a stance as if he was about to lift something. His eyes glowed a steady bright red. Firo extended his hands out and began to grip the air. The ground began to shake more violently by the second. Yasha looked around in astonishment as crack were forming around the area. Firo focused more, creating heavy electric discharge in the air. Finally, Firo gave all his might to the task causing a sizable chunk of the ground equivalent to a large forest to rip itself out of the ground. Yasha stood on it as it levitated further into the air. When it reached an altitude where it appeared to be a floating island, Firo threw his arms up, causing the ground to flip. Yasha held on tight as the piece flipped vertically and then horizontally once upside down. Yasha quickly jumped off and descended to the ground. However, the land mass was still about to collapse on top of him. However, with a jump and a swipe of his arm Yasha began to cut through.




Yasha finally broke through with a burst of blue mantra. It t you're through the severed earth, allowing to two halves to crash to the ground. Yasha then finally made a B- line for Firo, giving him no time to react.


Yasha sped past Firo and then stopped. Firo didn't move a muscle. Then without warning, several blue slashes formed across Firo's body. He was bleeding heavily and fell to the ground, kneeling in exhaustion. His mouth guard had also shattered. Yasha shook the blood off of his hand and turned around to look at Firo.

Yasha: Give up now. You cannot win.

Firo didn't move. However, his panting soon turned into insane laughter. Just then, Yasha's visor cracked and split cleanly in two, falling from his face. He looked down astonished to find his chest had claw marks carved deeply into it and a luminescent orange fluid leaking out of the wound along with electrical discharge. Firo then rose to his feet and shrieked to the sky with vigor.


Firo's wound healed in seconds and his energy had flared up.

Firo: Congrats, you've just guaranteed your death...

Yasha: You may look like a human, but you are far more akin to a demon.

Firo: I appreciate the compliment! Let's continue, this fight is getting good!

The two readied themselves once again. They then took off at each other, ready to strike!

Up above Gaea, Ultiman and Asura flew around each other trading blows at his speed. Ultiman assaulted Asura with several sword slashed. Asura blocked with his gauntlets and threw heavy punches back at him. Ultiman retreated and began to create energy slashes with his blade.


Asura countered with blasts from his fists. The attacks collided and exploded in a shimmer of light. The hero then winded up and threw the blade at Asura. It flew at him at incredible speed. Asura prepared to dodge only to find that Ultiman had appeared behind him. The hero then grabbed Asura's arms and held him in place as the blade flew toward him and struck his front, leaving a deep gash in his cybernetic body. Orange fluid sprayed out of Asura's body for a moment He then pulled the sword and blasted Asura away with his other hand. Just as he was regaining his composer, Ultiman then raised the sword above his head. It began to glow more brightly with blue light as it charged. It extended for miles above the two. Ultiman then finally brought it down on Asura who didn't move.

► ◄

Asura caught the blade between his hands and held on tight. The energy coming from the blade sparked in electrical discharge, hurting both the target and it's wielder. However, Asura overcame it. He then squeezed the proton blade his his hands until it snapped. The energy dissipated, leaving the hero nothing but a broken sword. The hero tossed it aside.

Ultiman: Upgrade Energize...

Ultiman's body began to glow brightly from head to toe. He sent shockwaves out around him and his light engulfed the area. The light went away to reveal Ultiman covered in a much heavier armor fitted with boosters on his back and legs, as well as long red scarf ending in twin tails and a full helmet. His blade had reformed with a new, bigger, and more intricate blade.


The newly outfitted hero took off in a flash. He reappeared in front of Asura and struck him with a heavy punch. Asura went flying backward. Ultiman pursued him and attempted another hit, only to have Asura block. He then tried to counter when Ultiman teleported backward and then rushed in again to land a clean hit. Asura's anger reached new heights and he ferociously attacked Ultiman. The two soared around trading seismic blows.


Asura launched a punch that landed cleanly on the hero's face. Ultiman then replied with the same.


They went back and forth several times until they both paused. However, this was only to fire up their thrusters.




Asura and Ultiman rocketed forward, finally clashing fists. Asura began to gain the upper hand only until Ultiman pushed back harder. Their booster output multiplied in size by the second until it dwarfed the two greatly. The Mantra and Hyperion flared to no end as well, forming titanic walls of red and blue energy, violently pushing against each other.



Asura and Ultiman punched with all their might until a reaction between the clashing energies claimed the area in a great explosion. The two held on to the last instant before it forced them apart and consumed everything, even reaching down to the planet.

Down below, Yasha and Firo rushed at each other, bearing attacks blazing with power. Yasha bore his shining golden halo on his back.



However, a great light from above shone down upon the land and in the next moment, a wave of energy came down and tossed the two combatants like leaves in the wind. The explosion appeared similar to a star, engulfing everything in light. It then finally began to die down and vanish at last. All of the orbital debris had been cleared away and all was calm. Asura and Ultiman drifted about unconscious. Their bodies were near opposite poles of the planet. Asura's arms had returned to their original state and several pieces of Ultiman's armor had broken away, including his helmet.

End it:


The two were motionless until finally, they both twitched.

The two fighters then instantly shot awake and took off flying. They approached each other like shooting stars, streaking across the planet. They then finally reached each other, readying punches.

The two got within striking distance and threw their punches with all their might. They looked into each other's blazing eyes just before punching each other in the face.


to be continued...
