Intro: A storm was brewing. Everyone knew that, Both the metaphorical storm that was happening within the halls of the UCA, and a thunderstorm that raged ontop one of the highest peaks of the mountain region. Lightning clashed and lit up the skies as the slopes were twisted into mudslides by the torrential downpour. The echoing thunder blared those who could have heard, and the great flashes of light made visible, of only for mere seconds, a great golden dragon, hovering in the air, all six of its small purple eyes watching as it floated amongst the clouds, waiting for the two that would come to face it...
A golden beam of energy opens the storming heavens, lancing down to the earth with a touch seemingly as light as a feather. The beam expanded, revealing the form of Rumaka, the photokinetic pegasus. Lightning crashes into the hills and craggy rock formations around Rumaka. The determined equine brays to announces his pressure, then rears up to get a better view of the area. Since the last time he had fought in this mountainous region against Cerataurus, this area hadn't changed a very much. However, torrential downpours were currently slamming into the landscape, eroding the hills and mesas dotting the landscapes. As the equine shot forward like a bullet, he passed the crouching form of Xena, before stopping dead in his tracks about a kilometer from the bulky draconian that was Salavance.
A jolt of telepathy shocked his ally's alien brain, and a loud message echoed through her mind.
Salavance bellows and then spews a trio of dark-energy blasts flying at Xena, who leaps over them nimbly, twirling in mid-air, then launching her chitin spear at Salavance. The bulky six-eyed dragon raises a massive paw and swipes at the weapon, but it's a moment too slow, and its parry catches only the last third of the spear, preventing it from stabbing deep into its throat.
Instead, the spear spins diagonally from the impact of the golden dragon's paw and opens up the Dragon's flesh from the right side of its chin nearly to its shoulder.
The wound is shallow, but long and exceedingly painful. Worse, the tip of the spear is lodged in the wound's termination point at Salavance's jaw, while a jagged chunk of its shaft protrudes from the flesh between the claws of its forelegs.
Shaking itself, Salavance bellows and thrusts himself into the air, rushing at Xena, who shears her cloak away lightning fast and tosses it at the dragon's face. Snarling in annoyance, the dragons takes little more than a second to shear the fabric away from its face, but it is enough time for Xena to slam into its side, secondary-jaw punching ungodly fast into the flesh of her opponent's right shoulder, obliterating the hardened scales there and returning to her mouth with a chunk of flesh.
Salavance trumpets in pain and twists to the side, jaws clasping onto Xena's torso and tearing her away from it, her claws leaving tracks in in its metallic hide.
Xena's armor may be incredibly strong, but so are Salavance's jaws. The dragon shakes and worries at its much smaller opponent, teeth digging rents in the hybrid-monster's deceptively soft-looking flesh.
But here the massive Wyrm is in for another surprise. Green fluid oozes from the wounds in Xena's torso..... And begins to burn horribly at Salavance's teeth and mouth! Grunting in surprise, acid burning at his snout and mouth.
The dragon releases Xena from its grip, as it has no particular desire to have its teeth burned away. It brings its tail about in preparation to swat her away as she collides with his chest, but instead, Xena's own tail whips outwards and wraps around the Dragon's neck. With a kick of her feet, Xena pulls herself up onto the Dragon's back.
Salavance's great armored shoulders beneath her thighs, Xena clasps her hands together and prepares to bring both down in a vicious hammer-blow on Salavance's head.
((I should note that Xena's acid-blood should not be considered any sort of counter-blow, as it is a clearly-stated property of her body, and not a deliberate reaction. If you have a problem with it at some point during the match, please tell me, but don't launch missiles at Xena for "breaking the rules".))

(Well, I was halfway done with my post... when I saw you had ninja'd me to it... No matter.)
The golden dragon wasn't going to let itself be tamed so easilly... no, it had other plans. Before the blow could come, A sharp pain stabbed into Xena's sides, before the xenomorph hybrid found herself hurled away into a large boulder, the rock smashing as Xena flew through it. Salavance narrowed its eyes and howled, its three pincer tails hoisted above its head, the middle most one shaking off the acidic blood that was dripping from it. A pair of gash marks now ran across the Xenomorph's midsection, where the pincer had sliced into and grabbed her. The golden dragon glared daggers at the alien, the wing arms on his back spreading out and becoming endued with Dark Energy...
only for an azure beam to pelt the dragon, sending it crashing onto its side as the heavenly scales burnt and were blasted. Salavance instantly took to the air, where its eyes laid upon Rumaka, the equine flying right for him, horn glowing. The lower part of its jaw splitting apart into a primordial screech, Salavance flew right for him, both battlers aiming for a head-on collision...
only for Slaavance to bank upward at the last moment, and for the deadly trio of tails to grasp around Rumaka's neck, blood spilling from the wounds caused by the slicing and locking motion of the pincers. Rumaka brayed in alarm as Salavance twisted downward, bringing Rumaka with him. The dragon curved right back up at the last moment, letting go and allowing Rumaka to be smashed into the mountainside, a plume of debris and smoke rising up. With that little combo out of the way, Salavance flew in close, dark energy embedding his claws as he prepared to slash down at the prone figure of Rumaka...
The photokinetic pegasus barely had time to react as the shadow-cloaked claw flew towards him like a speeding bullet imbued with the chaotic energy of darkness itself. Just before the blades of darkness sunk into the aerial alicorn's delicate flank, the equine extended his legs outwards, his chiseled hooves slamming into the draconian of light and darkness square in the center of its chest, sending him sprawling backwards, flailing and shrieking in agony. The lapse in concentration was all the equine required to heave himself to his feet. As the aerial annihilator prepared to take flight again, a bolt of azure blue energy streaked across the sky, slamming into the demon lizard's golden-scaled face. face, blasting off pristine scales and further agitating the beast from Hell. Salamance lunged forward, his claws extended out. Rumaka yelped in agony as the razor-sharp claws raked his thigh, but counters this strike by spawning a scythe like laser blade from his forehead, flicking his neck in an upwards motion to lacerated the reptilian reaper's shoulder. As the draconian destroyer screeched in frustration and reeled back, the equine beat his wings once, twice, three times, before taking flight. As Salavance struggled to regain his composure, the equine brayed as loud as his larynx could muster, rending the already storming heavens and allowing razor-sharp crystal shards to fall from the sky, as if they were crystalline additions to the torrent above...

( I am the most powerful ninja in the land, Giratina.)
As Salavance snarls in irritation and discomfort, crystal-spikes stabbing at his scaled hide and leaving hundreds of tiny cuts and bruises, or, in the case of his wings, larger and much more painful cuts and scrapes, a massive shadow falls over the dragon.
What is this? Has some new monster entered the fray...? The shadow is far too large to belong to Xena. Salavance turns to face the darkness's source, and finds himself staring at Xena, who has hoisted a jagged, pointed slab of rock weighing more than 200,000 tons above her head. Eyes narowing, Salavance opens his mouth and prepares to hose Xena with freezing cold mercury.
Smirking slightly, Xena lobs the back-breaking boulder as though its a toy, striking the dragon in the open mouth with a noise like thunder and bowling it over onto its back, a pair of broken teeth dropping from its mouth as its blast of molten mercury splatters stone and the ground in front of its body instead of Xena. Thrashing, Salavance shrieks in rage and explodes out from under the now-shattered rock as real thunder cracks in the background, lightning momentarily rendering the three kaiju and their surroundings a bleached bone-white.
Spitting dust and shards of stone, Salavance looks up in time to see Xena's blurred form only a few dozen meters from his own, arm arched back for a punch. Thinking fast, Salavance sweeps the blunt side of one of his three tail-pinchers at Xena, catching her in the neck and bowling her over and sending her tumbling. As the hyrbrid-creature leaps to her feet lightning-fast, Salavance swings two tails forward.......
Only for Xena to catch them. Extending wicked claws from her apparantly human toes, Xena crouches, digs in, and hauls on the limbs, dragging Salavance forward until it's overbalanced and stumbles forward....
...Into Xena's diamond-hard fist. The first blow is a powerful uppercut that dissipates Salavance's forward momentum and rocks its head back, blood flying from its already damaged mouth. The second is a whirling kick that slams the dragon's head down and to the side so hard it nearly touches the earth. The third comes as the massive Wyrm recovers; forming both hands into a ball and whirling in a full circle, Xena slams the beast across the jaw and sending rivulets of blood and spittle flying hither and yon as the drake reels and staggers, chest crashing to the earth.
For good measure, Xena opens a long, deep cut in the flesh of Salavance's still-bleeding throat, driving a groan of pain and rage from her massive opponent. The dragon struggles to regain his footing, a thick stream of blood running down his chest and legs, mixing with rainfall as it patters against the ground, which is now beginning to grow soggy as the massive storm-cell overhead begins to drop its cargo of precipitation.
Xena's mind suddenly attacks Salavance's with incredible power, seeking to break the dragon's will and hold him in immobile submission....
(I hope I did combos right.... Gah, if I did something wrong I'll edit or delete this post.)

(OOC: Okay... LET'S DANCE) The Reincarnation of Light and Darkness thrashed about, its head shaking back and forth as it tried to throw off Xena's will. The beast frothed at the mouth, throwing itself wildly around the mountain slope, its very mind assaulted. And yet, it refused to break, a fact that Xena was finding very, very annoying. She moved in closer, hoping to overcome the titan with her mental power. At the same time, he was in one place for the most part, so Rumaka flew in, readying an azure beam...
What neither knew, however, was they were walking into a trap.
The entire time, Dark Energy had been spread out from under the titan's wings, spreading around Rumaka and Xena. Only too late, did Xena realize what was there, as the dragon, in a howl of defiance, snapped its jaws shut.
For Rumaka and Xena, the entire world was lit aflame as they were engulfed in a sea of explosions following the detonation of the Dark Energy. They were thrown around, bathed in flames, and subjected to horrifying, excruciating pain. The mental assault was cut off, and Salavance whirled himself about just in time to see Xena's form fly back from the explosions, and Rumaka's form plummet to the earth, both charred and with bits of flesh and tissue missing from their bodies. The dragon was quick to focus once more on Rumaka, and leapt at the stunned equine.
The two sprawled head over heels when Salavance caught him in his fall. powerful hooves kicked out, nailing the reptilian menace in the face, but it didn't deter the monster. Another kick was intercepted by the razor sharp fangs of the beast, which dug into the equine's leg, before Salavance began thrashing his head back and forthlike a crocodile with prey. The leg was shredded from the fangs ripping through it. Rumaka brayed out in pain, but before he could retaliate, Salavance lept back, leaving behind an orb of Dark Energy that detonated on Rumaka's side, blasting chunks of flesh off and sending him sprawling, as the dreaded cosmic dragon twisted his gaze over to Xena, and swooped low, claws at the ready to tear her apart...
(I'm pretty sure of this, but Xena's acid blood doesn't count as my attack, right?)
"Shit, this little fucker's strong as the sprout lizard said…" The equine thought to himself, while struggling to hoist his frame upwards, his body stinking of charred flesh, the equine finally shuffled to his feet, but was too late to intercept the serrated claws before they shredded and tore into Xena's shining chitinous armor. Xena screeched in rage and frustration. Xena's acidic blood spurted out, burning and warping the shining scales around the barbaric beast's sharpened, blade-like claws. The photokinetic pegasus rushed in to aid his alien ally. The equine's heavy, feathered wings beat with such strength and speed that they were merely a blur in the mind of Salavance.
In Salavance's world, all hell broke loose when the wave of sonic energy slammed full-force into him.
Shrieking in agony, the reptilian raider of hell flailed in absolute terror as the wave of sonic power dotted Salavance's prone and panicked form with explosions, sending even more marvelous scales flying off the shrieking serpent. The draconian destroyer was reduced to a mere panicked savage beast by the loud snapping noise. As the crazed dragon continued to scream and panic, the sheer power of the sonic boom threw him into the side of an overlooking ridge, causing him to leave an imprint on the rock.
As the draconian slumped down and forced himself up, the equine was already upon him. The equine ignited his Hornzer and once again swung his neck, this time sideways. The crimson blade of energy struck a direct hit on the draconian's chest, the energy tearing into the chest of the once mighty draconian warrior. The dragon struck back, once again shredding into the equine's side Leaping backwards in surprise, the equine expelled a blue bolt of pure energy from his maw, striking the supports of the ridge, therefore pinning the heavenly Hellian to the floor. Lunging forward, Rumaka readied his Hornzer, aiming right for the draconian's neck...

....And Salavance's wing-hands swept frantically at Rumaku, clubbing Rumaku in the head and sending the horse to the ground in a tumble of hooves and wings, hornzer-blast goin awry and carving a sizzling-hot trench in the side of Salavance's shoulder instead of its head or neck, blasting away a shower of scales and a charred ribbon of skin.
All of this gave Xena ample time to recover, formulate a strategy, and if she had wished, carve a statue in the rocks.
The human-xenomorph hybrid, had, however, elected not to do any rock carving. Hammmers were much more useful in a fight, and she happened to possess the means to create one, given a bit of time.
As Salavance flung its bulk about beneath the trapping weight of the ridge Rumaku had pinned it beneath, crushing and rending the rock above it and flinging mud in every direction, Xena leaps out of the cover of the storm, bringing a chitin hammer nearly the SIZE of Salavance's head....
....Down on Salavance's head. Roar cut off to a moan of agony, three more teeth flew out of the Drake's mouth as Xena's blow slammed its head down into a boulder hard enough to split the rock and send both halves of the stone flying. Literally.
Blood stains the studded head of the hammer and oozes from the senseless Salavance's shredded scalp. The dragon tries to sit up, but Xena turns the hammer sideways and swings it like a gold-club, opening the flesh on the side of the dragon's head in three different places and spinning the beast's entire upper body to the side, droplets of blood trailing from the blow as if Salavance's head were a great, golden comet.
Xena smiles, parts of her still smoldering with smoke from the dark-energy blast, the rain making sizzling sounds as it strikes her pale skin, and crouches in front of the momentarily senseless dragon. Her left cheek is slightly blackened, and one of her eyebrows is singed away. In addition, her hair is burnt and wild and missing tufts and chunks from both the blast of dark energy, and the dragon's claws. Her entire body is covered in soot and mud, and several thin gashes surrounding two much larger wounds gleam a violently bright neon-green through the muck and detritus.
All the same, she manages to look beautiful, in a feral, dangerous sort of way. Her lips stretch in a smile, revealing dozens of pointed silver fangs, and she murmurs.
"I took a bit of your flesh earlier, beast, but I was much too busy trying to hold onto you to enjoy it or even process the taste. So...."
Xena leans forward, opens her jaws wide, and tears away a large chunk of skin and flesh from the side of the dragon's nose as it begins to regain its senses.
Senselessness burned away by the piercing pain, Salavance rears back and shrieks, a fresh stream of blood running like a mountain creek from the side of its snout as it raises a forelimb, clubbing Xena in the face with one massive paw. The blow spins Xena around entirely, but quick leg-work on her part prevents her from going down or tumbling away.
Instead Xena smiles again, and speaks, voice slightly mushed by the fact that she's chewing up and swallowing a bit of Salavance.
"It would only be fair of me to allow you to taste my blood."
The Xenamorph dodges two more blows from Salavance casually; without the ariel advantage or Xena's concentration partially absorbed by trying to mount physical attacks of her own, she is simply too fast for it.
She swallows as a third blow whistles past her ducked head, then leaps up, opens her mouth, and sprays a fountain of acid at Salavance's face....

The dragon was furious. No mortal being... no entity of flesh and blood could desecrate it in such a way! It was a slayer of gods, the harbringer of their twilight, A force of nature that plagued the very universe it was from...
and here was this laboratory REJECT eating HIS flesh! THAT WOULD NOT DO!
As Xena fired the acid into his face, Salvance fired a single orb of Dark Energy that detonated upon intercepting the acid. To Xena's horror, the acid she was firing exploded, until it finally exploded right in her face, the hybrid thrown back against a massive rock, the rock cracking from her impact. Thrashing his head around, the dragon moved in, both its wing arms spreading from its back and grasping the ground, before it dashed forward, its very movement changing. Not it was like a runaway freight train, as it smashed into Xena's form head first, acidic blood and acid coughing up from the hybrid's body as the form of the dragon smashed her through the rock, but it wasn't done yet. One of the wing arms grabbed the xenomorph's head the deadly claws digging trenches into her skull, before lifting her up and smashing her back against the ground. The very mountain seemed to shake at the impact, as her hide cracked and bled from the blow. Salavance grabbed the struggling xeno with both wing arms and his pincer tails, ready to break her in half...
atleast, until Rumaka came flying in to the rescue. Salavance screeched as the horn of the equine warrior pierced his side. Precious blood was spilt out of his body, and Rumaka tried to get away, but he wasn't fast enough. The pincer tails were on him, one around his neck, two around his wings, as the raging dragon prepared to smash Rumaka and Xena against each other, head to head...
Just before the two revolutionary allies collided, Rumaka's form twisted, wrenched and warped. Salavance cackled with sadistic glee and delight as he prepared to send the duo smashing together, and chuckled when he caught eye of what appeared to be Rumaka's desperate struggles. Just before the two crashed together, Rumaka's form disappeared.
Or so the harbinger of Hellian destruction thought.
Salavance was dazzled with the sparkling iridescent light was the aerial equine contrasting with the storming sky. The photo kinetic pegasus began to give the being of Light and Darkness the light show…of his life. Thhe brute attempted to keep track of wherever the hell (pun not at all intended) the equine was, but as the equine looped and turned, the light and speed of the equine's acrobatic show began to confuse even the "slayer of gods." Xena was puzzled by this as well, the injured alien assassin brushed it off, though, as she thought it was the alicorn just being his normal idiotic self. Salavance, at that exact moment, began to suspect the deception, taking to the skies with several mighty beats of his membranous wings, as the equine bobbed and weaved almost tauntingly around the destructive drake, who instead came forward with a more brusque approach, simply shooting and darting around the equine. Rumaka's form warped and paused in the air. As Salavance prepared for a head-on collision, Rumaka dove underneath at the last second, looping upwards, then arcing downward, striking the brutal destroyer square in the chest, pushing the shocked Salavance directly toward the peak of a mountain, the gravitational force crushing and warping even more serrated scales! When the equine finally forced the Hellian lizard into the peak, Salavance's bulky frame left a crater in its wake, the dragon' head surrounded by a pool of blood, with pebbles also pelting a once pristine coat of scales. The exhausted equine struggled to lunge away, the recovering Salavance able to score the galloping grenadier's ankle with his serrated appendage. The equine was winded, but his desire to prove himself allowed him to put up with his incredible tiredness. The equine beat his wings as hard as his winded form could muster, this time sending a burst of sonic energy not at Salavance, but a nearby pillar of stone.
The sturdy pillar was completely annihilated.
Debris and dust was sent in all directions, the narrow shards of rock riddling Salavance with small scores and cuts. As Salavance lunged for the alicorn, the equine summoned a veil of encapsulating iridescent light, briefly stunning the drake, but also allowing Rumaka to extend his scythe-like Hornzer, but this time, the Hornzer solidified, now resembling crimson obsidian. The equine stampeded forward, striking the golden drake in the chest, ripping a huge gash down his underbelly. The equine then arched his back down, charging in and preparing to flick his neck upwards, attempting to slam into the Hellian brute as if the equine were a rhinoceros...
(When Rumaka slammed Salavance into the mountain, was that too much bloodletting, though it was only a shallow pool.)

A thunder crack of a voice split the stormy sky in two. "ATTENTION! UNFAIR COMBAT TACTICS DETECTED BY COMBATANT: XENA!"
A trio of electrical bolts were launched from distant mountain peaks, each flung from a long, sleek machine that resembled a monstrous crossbows flanked by a pair of Tesla coils. The lightning-charged projectiles struck the human-alien hybrid like the ancient javelins of Zeus himself, splitting her chitinous hide open and sending an electrical jolt through her acidic blood. Poisonous vapor spewed from her exposed veins like smoke from a dragon's nostrils as she fell writhing to the ground.
"THIS WAS YOUR FIRST WARNING! I WARN YOU: DO NOT TEST ME AGAIN!"
(I'm sorry to do this two turns too late, Vatarian, but it has come to my attention that the ability Xena has been using to form chitin constructs... namely spears in her first post and a hammer in her latest... is not listed anywhere in her bio. You may edit it into her power list at any point, but it will not come into affect until <i>after</i> this match, so please refrain from using that power anymore please.)
