Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by Ace Trainer » Thu Oct 07, 2021 3:24 pm

The arena has a 25m radius and is mostly comprised of grass land, trees to provide some shelter and texture to the battlefield. However, 5m from the wall surrounding the entire arena is sandy terrain. The arena is marked by a 20m high wall that is built in the shape of a doughnut, the seats are layered with ten rows running along the whole perimeter of the arena. There is a tower that is supported by pillars and columns above the northers side of the stadium, this is where the representatives of other nations are seated. The participants have the own place to wait until their turn, it is at the bottom section of the wall surrounding the battlefield and has a viewing window that allows the participants to watch fighting that take place. The contestants form a triangle, with Ico standing at the northernmost point of the arena, Aiya at the southern-most point of the arena.

The judges for this bout will be Nu, Sha, Ji.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Mon Oct 11, 2021 4:45 pm

Ico stood in the arena, looking around at the people sat within the crowds who seemed to be eagerly watching with excitement. He pondered why they we’re excited to see three children fight, then he suddenly realised there wasn’t a third. Very strange, why hadn’t he turned up? Though it was now to Ico’s advantage he wouldn’t have to fight two Konoha shinobi and only one.

His opponent was Aiya, she’d shown her prowess with close range combat in the previous bouts, though she’d shown little ninjutsu or genjutsu, which made it interesting. It would come down to strength, speed and technique. The small boy was confident he had the physical advantage, but his technique was of course lacking.

He nodded to the genin in front of him, clear he respected her as a warrior. But it was now time to crush her, as he heard the klaxon ring out to signal the bout could begin. Without any hesitation, he withdrew a kunai and flung it through the air directly at Aiya, not at his full strength throwing it around 15, to at least hide some of his real physical strength. She’d seen him in action but hadn’t felt it for herself, so he hoped to catch her off guard. Running forward at 15 speed, again hiding his real physical prowess moving in a zig zag formation and withdrawing his blade, hoping to avoid any incoming projectiles.

The blade was raised high above his head, he closed the gap of the small arena and edged closer to Aiya, he swung the blade round in a circular motion with 15 strength aiming down at Aiya’s left shoulder.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Wed Oct 13, 2021 6:27 pm

So far in this tournament, Aiya hadn't felt much in the way of fear. She was confident against Akihiro, and wary against Akujin's explosives. Even against Proximus, she was cautious but unafraid. But Ico... not only was he a Kirigakure shinobi, but she had seen him put that horrifying sword to work in their fight against the masked giant. She felt no shame in admitting to herself that the boy across from her scared her... but that was exactly why she had to fight.

As the boy nodded to her, she responded in kind with a deep bow of respect, gulping quietly to herself. The tension in the air was so palpable you could cut it with a knife... "Good luck to you, Kirigak- ... Ico." It wasn't fair to generalize him as just another Kiri shinobi. No, Ico was a warrior, and he had earned the right to be addressed as an individual. As the gong rang out, signaling the battles beginning, Aiya readied herself and began to glow with blue chakra.

As Ico's Kunai came rushing in, Aiya's swift eyes were able to detect the movements leading up to the throw. As such, it wasn't much for her to cross her arms and produce a handful of 5 Shuriken in each hand, using her Fuuinjutsu to poof the weapons into her hands. In two swift tosses as she unfolded her arms, she'd send the litany of weaponry forward, aiming two for the incoming Kunai just to make sure it went down, while the other 8 would fly towards Ico in an attempt to slow his advance. At the least, he'd have to work much harder to close the gap, which would hopefully slow him enough for one of her newer toys.

She'd bring her arms back in, as if crossing them again, but as she did so she'd flick her wrists, commanding the eight wires wrapped around her arms to unfurl and lash out 5 meters in front of her, like tiny whips of steel, tearing through the air - as well as Ico, if he was too close - with ruthless efficiency. All the while, her skin was beginning to darken...

She couldn't afford to go easy against this shinobi.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Fri Oct 15, 2021 12:08 pm

Ico watched her with a keen interest, paying attention to every movement as she summoned ten shuriken. An interesting way to draw weaponry, chakra taxing and perhaps not always as efficient as a slight of hand ability but that gave Ico a clue that she had a variety of weapons to her disposal ones that weren’t on her persons.

The young kiri genin kept on course, the shuriken came towards him but he had anticipated projectiles and it’s why he was running in the zig zag formation he was moving at just enough speed and at the right angle to avoid them. Catching sight of Aiya pulling back her wrists and she hadn’t moved her position meaning she likely had a trick up her sleeve, literally.

Ico would of usually stopped but the voice is his head said Keep going forward, rip up the earth and kill her! The young genin torqued the muscles in his arm and rather than swinging at Aiya he slammed it into the ground, the metal whips lashed out striking him across the face, ripping his flesh but he continued to close the gap, moving through the whips. The voice inside willing him forward, earth ripped from the ground at point blank range moving forward and hopefully slamming against Aiya and either A, knocking her out of bounds or B knocking her out completely and ending the bout early.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Sat Oct 16, 2021 11:42 pm

Aiya's skin was already darkening as her wires lashed out, and with a grin she could see that the berserking Kiri shinobi took the blows without much of a defense. But of course, that also meant he was unimpeded in his approach now, as her whips and shuriken had only slowed him down slightly. But Aiya had been doing plenty of training of her own, her body had become much tougher in preparation for a fight with this beast of a shinobi called Ico. As her transformation finished taking form, her arms sprouting and her armor and eyes emerging, the girl held up her primary arms in front of her and braced for impact as the cascade of rock and stone rushed towards her. The rocks dug through her leather bracers with ease, rendering them useless as a defense was concerned. But by absorbing at least some of the impact, as the rocks dug further into the woman's chitinous armor, it merely cracked instead of utterly shattering - It would retain usefulness at least a little while longer. The shear force of the impact sent her sliding backwards a meter or two as well, her heels just barely staying out of the sand that marked the boundary of the arena.

All in all, she was able to absorb the attack quite well, and push through the pain of the impact relatively easily. This would allow her to capitalize on the boy's offense with her own, zigzagging between the raised stones as fast as she could with two of her secondary hands outstretched - The 'middle' set of arms. The aim was to drive both of her fists into the boy's chest with all of her might and push him back a bit to gain some ground, letting out a roar of fury as she rushed forward with her double-fisted strike. Meanwhile, her body once more glowed with a blue aura, allowing her to once again tap into the armory hidden within her fuuinjutsu. As her right palm glowed for a brief moment, a large staff suddenly poofed into existence in her hands - the Ruyi Jingu Bang. With it's bulbous steel ends and spiked striking edges, it's attacks would carry with them intense pain.

But for now, she had to get off the back ropes; Aiya would quickly plant her staff into the ground and lift herself up into the air, suspending herself upside down in a hand stand on her staff. She'd wait only a brief moment to see how Ico intended to react to the stance, then attempt to push herself up and over the boy towards the middle of the arena, pushing herself about 10 meters horizontally and 3 vertically to push herself over Ico's head to a safer range. As she landed, she'd tuck and roll to mitigate damage, then begin twirling her staff in preparation for the next clash with the savage Kiri ninja.
JutsuShow
[Genbu no Ken • Tortoise Shell]
C-Rank Taijutsu Stance
Aiya will bring her arms in close to her torso and tighten her stance as she prepares to defend herself. While maintaining this stance, she is much slower (-6 Speed) But she is also a lot tougher, and is able to more adequately take and defend against attacks (+6 Endurance).

[Genbu no Ken • Bear's Endurance]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Such a brutal style as Genbu no Ken requires that Aiya take hits often, standing strong against the tides instead of flowing with them. This discipline represents her ability to do so, shrugging off strikes that aren't immediately crippling with relative ease, powering through pain and pressing forward in spite of wounds suffered.

[Genbu no Ken • Charging Minotaur]
D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Running towards her opponent, Aiya will position her Tonfas so the shorter ends are protruding past her fists. As she nears her target, she will leap up and thrust both fists forward, aiming to ram both tonfas into the target's torso.

[Augment Fuuinjutsu • Multi-Storage Access Seal]
D-Rank Fuuinjutsu
Prerequisite: Storage Fuuinjutsu • Multi-Storage Seal
These seals, tattooed on Aiya's palms, are directly linked to the prerequisite seal placed on her back. Therefore, by activating the access seal via Kai, Aiya can retrieve any weapon or equipment stored within the Multi-Storage Seal without having to reach behind her to touch the fuuin on her back, significantly reducing the amount of time and effort required to retrieve gear from her storage seal.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Floating Phoenix]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Stance
Aiya will plant her polearm into the ground and lift herself up high into the air, supporting herself on the polearm with a single hand as she rests on the planted polearm. By itself, this stance allows her to keep her feet off of the ground and elevate her position above incoming attacks in a rather tricky way.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Pidgeon Hop]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: Prerequisite: Suzaku no Tsubasa • Floating Phoenix
Aiya will first initiate prerequisite stance, elevating herself on her polearm. She will then use her leverage on the polearm to push herself in any direction, to a distance equal to her [Strength]. This is a great way to catch an opponent off guard with unorthodox aerial movement, or quickly move herself out of a disadvantageous situation.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Wing Buffet]
D-Rank Taijutsu Stance
A staple technique of any polearm style, Aiya is capable of maintaining incredible momentum with her polearm by twisting and twirling it in her hands. By rotating her hands, arms and body in various ways, Aiya can spin her polearm around her body in large circles. Doing this works as a functional defense capable of slapping away blows and mundane projectiles of a lesser strength than her own. This also acts as a powerful offense, delivering sweeping strikes backed by the momentum of the spins.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Mon Oct 18, 2021 2:29 pm

Ico’s attack hit its mark, the rocks ripped from the earth and slammed into the young woman from Konoha. Withdrawing his blade from the earth he began to pull back and torque his muscles once again ready for a secondary attack if need be. It was apparent he’d need to as she’d created some kind of defence, she hadn’t been knocked out of bounds and he peered through the gaps of the rock, her skin was blackened and now cracked, so his attack had done some damage but not quite enough.

‘Crush the bitch!’ yelled the voice in his head, a voice he wasn’t strong enough to resist.

He had shown most of his abilities during the previous bouts, he was after all a one trick pony and perhaps Aiya had forgotten that as she zigged and zagged through rocks, it of course wasn’t a straight line but she’d trapped herself between the rocks and put her right in the firing line as the self-proclaimed one trick pony slammed his blade back into the ground, ripping up the earth again and attempting to crush her between the rocky path she’d put herself in and disrupt any counter attack she had planned.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Mon Oct 18, 2021 2:44 pm

All the toughness in the world wasn't going to save Aiya from the incoming strike that Ico aimed to finish her with. She had tried to simply eat a hit so that she could put the boy on the back foot, but his speed was simply too great... She'd have to get tricky. As she realized that her attempt to punch him or switch to another weapon were both not good enough, she'd pause half way through the rocks and push off of one of them to get herself back to where she had started, all the while channeling chakra through her body. As the boy slammed his blade back into the ground, the girl would land on the earth where she had started and watch as the rocks began flying towards her again.

But as they drew closer, as her feet touched the ground, Ico would watch as she seemed to... keep falling? Falling into the earth itself, leaving nothing behind her save for blank air. The rocks would jut forward into that air, making clear that if she hadn't vanished under the earth, she'd have been pushed out of bounds at the least by that strike. But as it stood, she was now underground - And would use her ability to perceive vibrations to track the boy above her while she positioned herself for an ambush.
Jutsu UsedShow
[Doton • Mole Hiding]
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After flooding the earth below her with chakra, Aiya will submerge herself into the ground. Aiya can then dig through the earth with the use of chakra, willing it to move out of her way. In the first post, Aiya may only move down into the earth to a maximum depth of 10 meters, leaving no sign of disturbed earth behind. In the following posts, Aiya can travel underground for up to 5 posts before needing to recast the jutsu. The maximum distance Aiya can travel from their original position is 25 meters in any direction, including down deeper into the earth. Additionally, the earth can only be moved at a speed equal to the user's [control], limiting the user’s speed at which they can travel through the ground.

[Spider's Touch]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Spiders must rely on their ability to feel their web twitch with their legs to know when something has entered their web. Knowing this, Aiya has honed her sense of touch to the level of the spider. By feeling vibrations within something she is touching, she can pinpoint the location of any vibrations made within 20 meters of her. Vibrations are created when something touches the surface in question, so things such as walking along the ground or tapping on a wall she is touching will let her know exactly where the vibration came from. She can also discern the general size of the thing creating the vibrations, letting her differentiate smaller things like projectiles or debris from larger things like people or boulders. In general, the weight of a thing increases the intensity of the vibrations it creates.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Mon Oct 18, 2021 2:55 pm

Ico snarled as she seemed to submerge into the ground, avoiding his attack. He hadn’t seen her do that before so he had no idea, it was a good move one he wouldn’t look down on. Avoidance was just a good of a defence as any, but Ico wouldn’t waste any time at all he had to be quick before she managed to move.

‘Be quick’ The voice said again, without hesitation as he watched her slip through the ground, he moved with such speed leaping high and over the rocks spinning his weapon in the air and landing on the ground as his blade stabbed after her. To a lament it may seem that he was simply trying to stab through the ground, but he wasn’t so foolish. The ground beneath him shook immediately ripping up and hopefully bringing Aiya back up with her. He didn’t stand in place though and jumped back over the rocks so he was in a higher position and wouldn’t be in the of the rocks.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Mon Oct 18, 2021 5:00 pm

As she descended into the ground, she closed her eyes as darkness enveloped her, moving down 10 meters as her sense of touch reached out through the earth to detect any faint vibrations. What she got instead was the equivalent of "Temporary Blindness" in regards to her vibration sense, as the earth shook so violently around her that any sense of direction was lost. In addition, the earth surrounding her shifted and shunted in different directions, with her at the epicenter, causing the earth to press against her with such power that the shattered chitin surrounding her flesh was fully broken. My god, how strong is this kid!? I've never met anyone this strong that was still a genin, it's overwhelming! She grit her teeth, pain reverberating through her body as she struggled to get some sense of direction.

But after the miniature quake ceased, a single vibration rang out. Above her, on top of the rocky death he had sent towards her in the first place. That's where he landed eh? Initially she had intended on moving out of range, but with him moving closer...

With intense speed she rushed up towards the boy, glowing for a moment while she produced her bladed tonfas - Shingetsu and Mangetsu - In her primary hands. She'd then pass them down to her 'middle' set of hands before reaching up with those primary hands to grip the boy's ankles from underground, moving up through the very rock he stood on, it's width concealing her approach. With a swift yank and a bit of chakra, she'd aim to pull him a meter into the rock with her, holding his arms and legs with her 'upper' and 'lower' arms while stabbing towards his side with her bladed tonfa's in the 'middle' set of arms. The hope was that the extra pressure of the surrounding earth would help make up for the difference in strength between her and Ico, as she knew she couldn't hold him for long otherwise. Lastly, with a powerful "CHOMP", she aimed to dig her fangs into the right side of Ico's neck, drawing blood and injecting the boy with her venom in the same go.

Minako had inspired her to embrace the more 'animalistic' side of her clan... this trap door spider ambush technique was the result of it. Once done, she'd leave the boy submerged while she pushed away from him, moving to rise above the earth near the center of the arena. By this point, her spider form was beginning to fade, so she would move her bladed tonfas to her primary arms as the others began to recede and her skin began to return to normal.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Tue Oct 19, 2021 8:34 am

Ico soared back through the air, his small frame flinging itself backwards and landing gently on the rocks above keeping himself in a high position, it was clear that his attack wasn’t enough to bring Aiya back up from the earth below.

Least now in his high position he’d have to a good view of the field, for when she’d eventually come back up. He doubted Aiya would continue to hide underground, she likely knew that it would not get her the victory, hiding for prolonged times likely wouldn’t go down well with the judges.

The voice swelled inside his head

‘Rip up the earth!’

‘Destroy it all!’

‘Find her!’

‘Kill her!’


It felt as though his skull was almost going to burst.

“Silence.” He barked, out loud to the voice within. Who seemed to actually listen.

Ico knew that he’d have to pay close attention to his surroundings, waiting for Aiya to remerge he held his blade across his chest in a defensive position turning gently on his heel in a three sixty position so he could see as much of the field as possible.

Patience was now his key to victory, the silence was ironically almost deafening, nothing could be heard not even the crowd was making a sound. All that could be heard was Ico’s gentle breaths.

He couldn’t see a thing, was she not going to come back up? Suddenly it dawned on him, as the rocks beneath him even though gently vibrated, they rocks weren’t particularly large and weren’t all that stable, if she was moving through the solid earth it would have been much harder time realising she was on her way.

Pushing hard off the ground he leaped upwards, withdrawing an explosive tag and letting it fall to top of the rocks, seeing her hands pour through the earth as though it was made of liquid narrowly avoiding his ankles. His eyes widened with shock as flung himself backwards and weaved a single-handed kai exploding the tag, hopefully disrupting the rocks and causing some damage to her hands. Though he knew she had quite a few, so if he could remove some from the equation that would at least be handy.

He walked backwards taking centre position in the arena, holding out his large blade in a defensive position, readying himself for Aiya’s next move.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Tue Oct 19, 2021 3:14 pm

Aiya's hands grabbed nothing but air, and as he heard peeked up to see what was the matter, she almost immediately receded back into the rock with an "eep!" as she saw the tag descending towards her. The resounding "BOOM" sent yet another massive shockwave through the earth that overwhelmed her senses, but she had seen enough while above ground to estimate where the boy was going to land next. Her various extra spider bits had receded by now, but her ability to hide within the earth would remain for a long while - perhaps the rest of the fight. However, she had a feeling that for every second that passed with her underground, the judges were making notes about her... not good ones.

She'd have to come up and fight.

Before emerging though, she'd need a proper weapon configuration to handle the boy's massive strength. And for that she'd need range... Performing Kai first to put her tonfas away, she'd perform it again to withdraw a new set of weaponry. As she emerged from the earth, the small crater left by the boy's tag giving her an open area to pop out into, she held in her right hand a staff - the Ruyi Jingu Bang. And in her left, a series of five stone kunai. With a bit more chakra channeled into one of those kunai, the middle knife would begin to glow as her explosive jutsu was put into effect. With this, a handful of weapons in the left hand and her staff in her right, she was ready for the boy to come at her again. In fact, she would taunt him with a cocky grin.

"Is that big sword really the only trick up your sleeve? Come on..." Goading him was, of course, a ploy however. The plan was to get the boy to rush her again, brandish that sword of his, and just as he was swinging, she'd let loose the kunai. But not at the boy himself... at his sword. She'd aim to push herself up and out of the way of the strike with her staff, lifting herself up and hopping over towards the middle of the arena with the Pidgeon Hop technique, and as she sailed overhead, she'd let loose all five kunai with the boy's sword as their target. Of course, she'd kai the explosive one as well, hoping that the extra oomph from all five weapons combined might be enough to render the weapon broken.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Empty Talon]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Aiya's skill and control over her weapon has reached the point where she can control her weapon masterfully with only a single hand. This enables her for perform any maneuver or stance with her polearm and it's augmentations that makes sense with one hand, without detriment or risk to her own well being.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Wed Oct 20, 2021 6:20 am

Ico stood in the middle of the arena, his blade held out in his defensive position keeping a surpsingly calm demeanour seeming to have managed to quiet the voice within his mind. He had completed most of his bouts so far within the first couple of clashes. Aiya however was a much more tricky opponent, he had realised that he wouldn’t be able to simply rely on his overwhelming aggression though he had found some success so far.

His large blue eyes, set against his pale skin glistened as he watched her submerge from the earth to face him. There seemed something different about him than before, he seemed even smaller than before and certainly more timid. Truly showing his age.

She goaded him to attack, his foot pressed forward as though he was going to launch himself forward.

‘Cleave her in half!’

‘Finish this!’

‘Tear her flesh from the bone!’


“STOP!” he yelled out, tears pouring from his eyes he screamed at the voice within himself but not keeping his eyes off Aiya. He knew if he was going to win this, he had to ignore his base emotions, fight with a tactical mind and be patient. The tears streamed into the cuts across his, giving him a painful reminder of how powerful she was on the counter attack and the last time he rushed in. He wouldn’t make the same mistake again. Wiping away the tears he nodded at her.

He wasn’t entirely sure how the judges scored these bouts, but in his mind he was up on the cards meaning that Aiya was against the clock and would need to bring the fight to him, allowing him to go on the defensive and counter rather than the other way.

“No more tricks!”
he yelled out, his small child like voice more than apparent before holding his blade across his body ready to fight her “Fight me, show me how great you truly are with all of those weapons of yours!” he stepped forward, gingerly step by step ready to meet her if she came forward.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Wed Oct 20, 2021 8:15 am

Aiya scowled a little as it became clear that the boy did have at least some level of tactical planning... She had expected him to go full berserker, as he had in every round thus far, but as he yelled out and calmed himself she silently wondered... maybe the boy wasn't the only thing she was fighting right now? Maybe he had his own battle going on that she wasn't aware of, some inner demon that pulled the strings. For a brief moment, she felt remorse, even pity, for the boy as these possibilities went through her mind. But that moment was fleeting, as the bout was still on, and she had to do something to make up for the points she had no doubt lost due to her underground shenanigans.

"Fine, let's give them a good show then!" The woman yelled out while brandishing her various Kunai in her left hand. However, for the moment, she'd only throw a single kunai at the boy's head - the glowing, explosive one - before dashing behind it. As it neared the boy however, it would suddenly veer down towards his weapon, and would either impact it with significant force or hit the ground just underneath the boy, no more than a meter away from him. There it would remain as Aiya planted her staff with a single hand, pushing up into the air while suspended on the staff upside down. Then, from this position, she would let loose the other four kunai, each aimed for Ico's chest to cover her descent as she let out a cry of strength and came down hard, slamming her staff down on Ico's head with the staff. However, her goal was still to shatter his weapon; her hope was that he would use it in some form of defensive technique, allowing her to swing the staff at his weapon instead. With this much force coming down from above, it might be enough...

[Seiryu no Kiba • Twisting Tail]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver

She can then allow herself to fall back down, gripping her polearm tight and swinging it overhead as she comes down hard with a slamming downward strike on an opponent's head. Given the height and momentum of the falling strike, the strike is a bit slower to unleash (-6 Speed) But is made with much more power and ferocity (+6 Strength).

Post by TheLacarix » Wed Oct 20, 2021 2:50 pm

The young boy smiled and nodded as Aiya suggested they gave the crowd a good show. It was nice to push the voice aside in his head and actually get to fight on his own merit without the alter ego forcing him to fight overly aggressive without thought. The judges, even though he won it was clear the judges would of rules against him for his overly aggressive approach.

As she flung the kunai through the air at him, he didn’t know it was going to drop down but it didn’t matter he flung his own kunai with what was superior speed and strength, making it ricochet in the air and to the other side of the arena and his own kunai flung the other way.

The woman used her staff as a pole to fling herself into the air, directly above Ico he wasted no time slamming the tip of his blade into the ground as earth ripped up once again, this time it circled around Ico, hopefully slamming into Aiya and knocking her out of the air and doubling up as a defence stopping the kunai that we’re coming to his chest deflecting off.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Wed Oct 20, 2021 3:06 pm

Her explosive Kunai was flung off away from the two shinobi, the woman cursing under her breath as it was sent spiraling some 10 meters away towards the other end of the arena. But that wouldn't stop her from completing her offense, lifting herself high on her staff. While the rocks and earth would lurch up to protect Ico from her kunai assault, her staff kept her high enough that the emergence of earth only shifted the position of her staff a bit, requiring a slight reorientation before she could proceed with her slam. And between the power of the kunai digging into the earth and the forceful slam of her staff, the earth Ico had summoned to protect himself had to give way...

And when it did, she'd continue with her offense, twirling her staff while dashing through the shattered remains of the boy's defense as she prepared a multi fronted assault. Starting with a vertical strike aimed for Ico's left shoulder, she'd then quickly step to the Ico's right side, pivoting on her heel while rotating to deliver a harsh horizontal strike aimed for his side and back. The aim was to put him between the fragments of rock left by his own defense, putting him "between a rock and a hard place" as it were. She'd continue with the assault, delivering a horizontal strike aimed for the boy's knee next in an attempt to weaken his posture. Next would come another horizontal strike aimed for the boy's right arm, aiming to weaken his grip on his weapon. Finally, in a series of three back to back strikes, she'd let loose three vicious jabs aimed for the boy's chest and stomach.

Sweat was pouring from her body - This was almost everything she had to give. She had maybe one other trick up her sleeve, as she hadn't forgotten about that explosive Kunai off to the side...
Jutsu UsedShow
Including what transpired in the last post (Minus the explosive kunai's kai, since that got no where near Ico)

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Wing Buffet]
D-Rank Taijutsu Stance
A staple technique of any polearm style, Aiya is capable of maintaining incredible momentum with her polearm by twisting and twirling it in her hands. By rotating her hands, arms and body in various ways, Aiya can spin her polearm around her body in large circles. Doing this works as a functional defense capable of slapping away blows and mundane projectiles of a lesser strength than her own. This also acts as a powerful offense, delivering sweeping strikes backed by the momentum of the spins.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Tengu's Assault]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: Suzaku no Tsubasa • Wing Buffet
Aiya will twirl her polearm with increasing speed as she approaches her opponent, leading into a strong sweeping strike aimed at the opponent's side. This strike will flow into another and then another as Aiya proceeds with a flurry of crushing blows, following her opponent around the battlefield as he strikes at her opponent multiple times. She can produce a number of strikes equal to half her speed during this assault, which takes an entire post. Any opponent who blocks more than one strike of this flurry will suffer a -3 penalty to their Strength for 3 posts, as the force of the strikes jars their body.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TheLacarix » Wed Oct 20, 2021 3:55 pm

Ico watched through the gaps of the rocks as they slowly closed over, seeing that Aiya was too far out of reach for the rocks to hit their mark. A rooky mistake by Ico, he should have waited for her to get closer, then he wouldn’t have missed.

The voice in his head whispered softly

‘Idiot, you’re nothing without me’

Perhaps it was true, perhaps the voice in his head was right maybe he was nothing without the pure aggression, it was strange such a small boy trained to be a powerful killer, all motivated by an instinct that guided him through battle, and he’d finally managed to shut it off.

His arm was beginning to hurt, ripping up the earth with nothing but his blade was taking its toll. It pulsed with every moment, and it was starting to feel numb. He was lucky the bouts we’re so short, otherwise he was sure his arm would fall off. But he still had a little left in him and the timer was almost out.

Ico knew she’d likely press her with attack, was a determined woman or maybe she’d simply merge through the rocks again and get to him? Either way, she was going to get close, and he wasn’t going to waste the opportunity. He tensed the muscles in his arms readying himself for her

The sturdy rocks we’re a formidable defence, though they weren’t tempered by chakra they were simple regular rocks a disadvantage Ico had in comparison to doton users. Her staff slammed against the earth, it didn’t quite give way in a glorifying disrupting slam but slowly crumbled away a she came closer to attack him. But was already torqued up, slamming the earth up again and at this point-blank range he didn’t expect Aiya to get away from it or perhaps she did have a trick up her sleeve. As the original defence gave way the newly formed rocks hurtled towards her hopefully slamming her back and preventing her attack in the first place.

Leaping backwards, five meters through the crumbled defence his eyes darting to the clock knowing that his time was almost up, his arms felt as though they we’re on fire as he slammed his blade into the ground for the final time not having the strength to complete a full defence, a single slab of earth rose in front of him. Hopefully defending him from any incoming counter attacks Aiya may attempt and putting a wall litreally between the pair.

His arms shook, barely able to hold the blade in his hands. But he had to appear to look strong, even on the inside he was screaming in agony. The buzzer rang out meaning the bout had ended for Ico. It was down to his defence and the judges score, unless his final blow had managed to knock her out. Which with someone as slippery as Aiya, he doubted.

Genin Bout Semi-Finals: Ico vs Aiya

Post by TyDie » Wed Oct 20, 2021 4:59 pm

Aiya's staff did in fact burst through the rocks, no doubt catching at least some of the boy as she plowed through them, but Ico's sudden strike against her made her have to shift away from the boy instead of press her assault, swiftly dodging to the right as his blade tore through the rocks yet again. But she couldn't let him get away, not with the battle almost over. Her skin would darken again as her spider form emerged, her extra arms and eyes and armor covering her body. She let out a hiss of annoyance as he put up one last barrier to protect himself, and she rushed towards it at top speed, planting her staff in the ground a meter in front of it before vaulting up into the air about 5 meters.

The objective was to clear the barrier, all the while channeling chakra through her body to call forth her tonfas - The Baku no Kiba, and pass the weapons down to her 'middle' arms. Meanwhile her primary arms, wrapped in their wires, would lash out to the boy from mid air, aiming to wrap around his arms and dig into his flesh before pulling hard on the wires to launch herself down towards him. She wasn't sure when the fight would end, but she'd fight to the last second, hoping to pin the boy down with her weight and pound away with her tonfas until someone got her off of him.

Twisting her arm while thrusting it toward a stable object or enemy, Aiya will have her wires wrap around an object or opponent. This is often used to catch herself in a big fall or to avoid falling into a hazard of some kind, but can be used to swing around a battlefield as well, provided there are enough places to use as holds.

C-Ranked Taijutsu Stance
Aiya will plant her polearm into the ground and lift herself up high into the air, supporting herself on the polearm with a single hand as she rests on the planted polearm. By itself, this stance allows her to keep her feet off of the ground and elevate her position above incoming attacks in a rather tricky way.

[Suzaku no Tsubasa • Pidgeon Hop]
