The Warlords! So much of what I write is based on what I'm watching at the time. In Y3 of Classic UPR, for example, you see some Digimon influence with the way the Megazords armor merge (DNA Digivolve).

Anyway, I'm 48 freaking pages into the next chapter and still going, so...just need to figure out how I want to break that up and post it.

Nice to hear from you again. Tommy made the Samurai Powers, see New Generation Year 3. As for Seraph and Digi origins, I'll give you glimpses of those soon-ish.

He was one of the ninja who helped Tommy in that standalone chapter where he took on hydra. Basically later on he died in the Mogralord battle and after the Hurricane powers were created his spirit was used and turned into the green ranger.

pliskin, thanks for asking, and NewWhiteTiger, thanks for answering!

Anyway, update...

I'm still plucking away (193 pages since last post...).

In the interest of telling a story, though, I'm going to whittle down what I have to focus on what I consider the key characters (you'll still see...pretty much everyone...but the focus will clearly stick to the important characters).

I wanted to share those characters with you; that gives you a chance to speak up if I'm missing anyone you care about.

Here's the list:
- Tommy & Ashley (huge surprise, I know)
- Simon (another shocker)
- Billy (what a twist!)
- Samuel
- Tyler
- Teddy
- Nick
- Adam (and Rocky...and Jarrod and Camille)
- Kou
- Blake, Hunter, Rachel
- Eiji, Ryan, Zadie, Shirogane
- Kamen Rider Wizard, Beast, and Kuuga (...and Sailors)
- Dax
- Kamen Rider Blade


Let me know if I'm missing anyone you care about. I plan to start posting again in November and draw everything to a close in December.

Thank you all for your patience and continued readership, especially those of you have been around since the beginning.

Chapter 11: War! Into Darkness

Beyond all space and time

Reality shattered, leaving shards of time and space in an endless void of chaos and madness. Within the void, the Ultimate Power Rangers gathered to learn the secrets of the End of All. Using Ranger Keys, they unlocked Time Shards to slowly unravel the history of existence's downfall.

The Shards revealed this story.


***

Somewhere? Nowhere?

The Dark One invaded Tommy’s mind, his very essence. The power felt crushing, like the pressure of the deepest oceans.

Tommy gritted his teeth. “Is that all you’ve got?”

YOU MISTAKE. THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO DESTROY YOU. THIS IS PREPARATION.

“For what?”

FOR THE TRUTH. LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN...

The Dark One’s energy wrapped around Tommy like a cold wet blanket. From the darkness came mist. The mist peeled back to form a landscape, a cityscape, like Angel Grove but slightly off. The color looked muted.

People moved about the street like normal. Cars drove across the roads.

At an intersection, a minivan floored through a yellow light and nearly smashed a sedan. The sedan driver got out of his vehicle, pulled out his gun, and fired. Bullets shattered the windshield and killed the minivan driver.

A few people glanced with passing interest. Everyone went on about their way.

Tommy narrowed his eyes at the sight. “Seriously…?”

He ran towards the minivan. But the image shifted, starting to spin.

SEE HOW EASILY THEY KILL EACH OTHER? the Dark One’s voice rumbled like a storm. THEIR HEARTS ARE FILLED WITH MALICE, WITH NO REGARD FOR LIFE.

“This isn’t real,” Tommy said.

ISN’T IT?

The image shifted to a church in Angel Grove North, the church where Simon’s father preached. But the building looked...different. Stained glass windows showed an armored figure, with a massive broadsword and fire for wings.

Tommy narrowed his eyes. “Is that…?”

The Dark One.

“Tommy!” a voice shouted from behind.

He looked to see Shannon, his first girlfriend, walk towards him with Kimberly and Ashley.

His face paled at the sight of her. “Shannon…”

She walked up to him and kissed him full on the mouth. Kim caressed his cheek and pulled him towards her, kissing him. Ashley did the same. Tommy barely had time to realize what was happening before it was over.

Their kisses felt cold. Hungry. Void of love. Just lust and insatiable hunger.

SUCH VIXENS…

Tommy ignored him. “What are you doing?”

“Going to church.” Shannon wrapped her hand in his. “Today’s the big day.”

“Big...what?” Tommy still felt taken aback, despite all he’d seen and experienced as a Ranger. “This Church…”

“Careful,” Shannon said coldly, her grip tightening.

Screams sounded nearby. Ropes lined the church’s rooftop. The ropes snapped upward and tightened, hanging two dozen men and women.

The churchgoers applauded.

Kim brushed the hair from her forehead. “Did you watch ‘The Apprentice’ last night?”

Tommy knitted his brow. “What the hell just happened?”

“‘Hell’?” Kim arced an eyebrow. “That’s a weird word.”

Tommy shook his head and looked into the skies. “What is this?!” he shouted. “Whatever you’re trying to do, it won’t work. I’ve been through enough mind games to-”

MIND GAMES? DO YOU REALLY THINK THESE ARE MIND GAMES? THESE ARE THE REALITIES I CAN CREATE WITH MY POWER. ALL OF EXISTENCE IS NOTHING BUT CLAY TO BE MOLDED, REMADE IN MY IMAGE.

Images shifted, to entire city blocks of people on their knees, worshipping the blackened skies, the presence of the Dark One. They seemed devout but empty. Hopeless. Lost. Angry and heartbroken.

DIE.

As one they slit their wrists and throats, bleeding out, without a moment’s hesitation.

DO YOU SEE? I AM THEIR GOD. I HAVE REMADE THEM. ALL THINGS ARE MINE. THEY WILL NOT KNOW THAT THEY HAVE LOST. THEY WILL KNOW NOTHING BUT ME.

Images shifted to plains filled with armies, demon-possessed men and women, monsters, and creatures of Nightmare. The Dark One’s Emissary kneeled at the lead of the army, which spanned the infinite landscape.

Tommy felt his spirit tighten as his will struggled, pointlessly, to resist. “This...can’t be happening…”

DENYING THE SUN DOES NOT MAKE IT SET. DENYING ME DOES NOT PREVENT MY VICTORY.

Tommy’s spirit gave in, collapsing to the weight of the Dark One’s power. The ranger breathed a sigh of defeat, mist of hopelessness and despair.

“That’s it, Tommy,” a voice whispered, the Tommy Oliver from Demon World Earth. The villain traced his fingers through his counterpart’s hair. “Just let him in...it’s so much easier.”

Tommy scoffed but didn’t move. “You again?”

“In the flesh,” the villain said. “I always knew it would be you and me at the end. Even before I knew you…”

Tommy said nothing. What could he say? The Dark One claimed victory. He covered the world, and all existence, with darkness. And Tommy didn’t know how to stop him. Even with the powers of Earth’s Champions restored, how could he get an all-encompassing force like the Dark One back in his prison to seal it?

Images shifted. Worlds spun into existence and out of control, spawned by the Dark Astral Plane only to die. Worlds of nightmares.

A tear streamed down Tommy’s cheek. “End this.”

END IT? THERE ARE NO ENDINGS. IT IS. I HAVE CREATED IT.

Tommy looked down and saw a barren landscape. Ashley sat with Tyler in her lap. He looked frail and sickly, all skin and bone. Ashley looked just as worn, with frazzled hair cut short. Their eyes looked down, aimlessly, without hope and full of shame.

Clouds of darkness surrounded them like fog.

“Shhh…” Ashley whispered, stroking Tyler’s hair. “I’ll get you away from here. Someplace...safe.”

She snapped his neck. Then slit her wrist.

Tommy’s soul screamed, shaking his entire essence.

AND SO I WIN.

The failure hit Tommy with more pain than any physical blow could inflict-- the knowledge that what happened here was his fault. His family, friends, all turned to shadow because of him. Those he loved had become playthings for the darkness.

I WIN. AGAIN.

From the darkness stepped three shadows from Tommy’s past. Secmet, Warlord of Venom. Kayl, Warlord of Cruelty. Daius, Warlord of Illusion.

Tommy’s evil doppelganger laughed at the sight of them. “Look who’s here. Our first teammates…”

Tommy screamed and bashed his elbow against his doppelganger’s face. He flipped the villain to the ground and grasped his Master Morpher.

He looked past the Warlords, into the Darkness.

“You think I’m the same kid I was years ago? The same kid who fell for Bandora’s parlor tricks?” Tommy shouted, fighting down his terror and shame.

THE FIGHT IS OVER.

“It’s just getting started!”

He thrust his morpher. “Dragonzord!”

He morphed into the armor of the Green Dragon Ranger.

“Now...let me show you what’s going to happen.”

***

Corinith City

Darkness covered all creation. Within Corinith City, the villain Tranza emitted a dome of energy to ward off that corruption. His intentions were less than noble, though. He aimed to take advantage of the Dark One’s chaos to create a new dimension, worthy of his people, the Vyram.

Reality warped within the dome, causing random explosions and waves of distortion.

Tranza lifted his hands, siphoning the power and spitting it back out through bolts of lightning and bursts of static.

The Jet Force Rangers surrounded him.

“Tranza!” Aero Red shouted. “Whatever you’re doing, it ends now!”

The villain smiled with madness. “If you stop me, what then?” he asked. “The world has already fallen into darkness. You’ve lost, Rangers...even if you stop me, you have already lost.”

The villain intensified his energy storm, bashing Jet Force off their feet. From the side, Time Red, Time Blue and Time Pink charged to help. But Tranza blasted them, smashing their armor with bursts of spark that knocked them backward.

The Red Jet Force Ranger rolled to his feet and armed his sword.

Tranza lowered his hands, powered down his energy storm, and unsheathed his own blade.

Aero Red and Tranza lunged at one another and clashed swords, weapons clanging as they circled around one another.

The Red Ranger chopped hard with a high arc. But Tranza vanished and reappeared. The Red Ranger twisted his grip and slashed. But the villain vanished and reappeared again.

Tranza slashed Aero Red with bursts of spark, whipping him off his feet. The Red Ranger crashed and tumbled backward, rolling into a crouched position.

Tranza thrust his hand and fired a stream of red lightning, wrapping around the Red Ranger and pinning his arms to his side.

Nearby, the other four Jet Force Rangers regrouped.

Tranza thrust his hand. Crimson lightning shot from his palm, thrashing the Rangers with bursts of spark. They staggered backward; Tranza lifted his sword and charged.

He pounced and swung his sword, slashing through the Jet Force Rangers one-by-one. They swung their blades, trying to block and parry, but Tranza moved faster, striking them down.

The Black Ranger rolled to his feet and leapt through the air to attack. He armed his fist weapon. “Wing Gauntlet!”

He punched towards the villain. But Tranza caught the punch and threw the Ranger through the air.

Aero Blue and Aero White flipped towards the villain, leapt through the air, and angled their descent towards Tranza. They armed their swords and chopped. But Tranza vanished; the two Rangers landed and staggered off balance.

Tranza reappeared and chopped his sword to the ground. Sparks erupted beneath the White and Blue Rangers, knocking them off their feet.

Yellow Owl leapt through the air and tackled Tranza, lifting the villain and throwing him aside. Tranza flipped through the air, bounced off a building, and shot towards the Yellow Ranger with a flying side-kick. The kick bashed the Yellow Ranger off his feet.

Meanwhile, Time Red somersaulted through the air and cut Aero Red free from his energy bindings.

Time Blue and Time Pink moved in on Tranza to keep him back.

“Vol Sniper!” Time Pink armed her massive blaster and fired bursts of pink energy.

The blasts smashed Tranza with bursts of spark, as Time Blue moved in to attack.

The Blue Ranger lept into the air and armed his Vector Sabers.

“Time Strike!”

He swung through streaks of blue energy, slashing Tranza with bursts of spark.

The villain staggered backward but stayed on his feet. He hacked the Blue Ranger to the ground with a burst of spark, twisted his grip, and slashed Time Pink with a burst of spark that whipped her backward.

Time Red and Aero Red charged with their blades held forward. They circled Tranza, weapons whirling and sparking against one another.

The villain hopped backward to gain distance, thrust his hand, and fired a pulse of energy that smashed the Red Rangers with bursts of spark.

***

The Digi Rangers lead the RPM, Bio-Beast and Overdrive teams into the Enetron Matrix. They moved through a winding corridor that spiraled upward inside the core of the matrix.

“Be careful,” Digi Red said to the others. “Last time we were in here, those cyber demons tossed us out without even trying.”

“That’s because you suck,” Red Falcon said.

Digi Blue grabbed Red Falcon’s arm. “Dude, what’s your problem?”

Suddenly, the Matrix lurched, sending the Rangers stumbling. The walls and floors tore apart; the Rangers fell downward, flailing through the air as distortion energy rippled around them.

From above, the villain Enter dove towards the heroes. His body rippled and morphed into the maroon armor of Dark Buster.



“Volcanic Attack!” His body flared with the fiery image of the cheetah, which exploded outward.

Explosions scattered the Rangers with bursts of spark, sending them flying across the cybernetic void in the center of the Matrix.

***

Outside, the DriveMax Megazord armed its saber and hacked the Samurai Megazord off its feet. Shinkenou crashed and skid backward, smashing through smaller buildings.

The Mach Megazord hovered in midair and fired volleys of lasers, missiles, and gatling blasts. Shinkenou climbed to its feet just in time to take the full impact of the attack.

The Samurai Rangers shook within their cockpit.

“This is getting ridiculous,” Samurai Green muttered. “We can’t keep this up!”

“What’re we supposed to do?” Samurai Blue asked. “Give up?”

Samurai Red shook his head. “We need to-”

The ground shook with a thundering boom. The Rangers expected another barrage of explosions, but instead, they saw something that gave them a glimmer of hope.

The Victory Trailer, Artillatron, rolled into Corinith.



The Phantom Ranger, his powers restored, stood within the cockpit.



He lifted his communicator to his faceplate. “Rangers...you must stop the cause of possession at its source. The Enetron Matrix.”

The Trailer’s holding bays opened, revealing the Turbozords of the fallen Turbo Rangers.

“I’ll give you the cover you need,” Phantom Ranger said, controlling the Turbozords by remote.

The Turbozords revved up and throttled from the trailer. The zords, more mystic than mechanical, swerved across the streets and combined, rising up to form the Turbo Megazord known as RV Robo.



“Turbo Megazord,” Phantom Ranger commanded. “Spin-out.”

The Megazord armed its saber and charged forward, spinning like a tornado. The attack slashed past the possessed Megazords, blade sparking on impact.

The Mach Megazord dashed into the air and opened fire, launching a barrage of blasts and missiles. The Turbo Megazord dashed aside, blasts exploding around the Robo with bursts of spark and fire.

The High Octane Megazord dashed in from the side, swinging its blade upward, sashing the RV Robo with bursts of spark. The Turbo Megazord staggered, and the RPM Megazord pressed forward.

The RPM Robo performed its Full Throttle Slash, energizing its saber and chopping through a streak of energy, slashing the Turbo Megazord with massive bursts of spark.

The Turbo Megazord crashed onto its back and skid backward, tearing through the streets.

***

The Red Lightspeed Rescue Ranger armed his V-Lancer and swung through a series of blows, striking Riot Troopers with bursts of spark, whipping them off their feet. But the demon-possessed Riders kept coming.

Rescue Red opened a commline to Dr. K. “You might want to get out of here. I don’t know how long I can keep this up.”

The Ranger hacked a Rider to the ground, swung upward, and slashed a second Trooper off his feet.

A Riot Trooper kicked the Red Ranger’s head, sending him staggering backward. Rescue Red twirled his staff into a defensive stance. But a Riot Trooper pressed forward and slashed him with a burst of spark, whipping him backward.

Footsteps sounded from the other end of the corridor.

“Out of practice, Max?” a voice asked.

Four figures bashed the Riot Troopers from behind, slashing and hacking the possessed Riders to the floor.

Rescue Red climbed to his feet, and when he looked up, he saw them. His teammates. His family.

“Guys!” Rescue Red shouted with excitement. “I could freaking kiss you.”

“Yeah, please don't.” Rescue Yellow swung his Rescue Baton, slashing a duo of Riders to the floor.

The five Rangers regrouped, together again for the first time in years.

“So…” Rescue Blue said. “This all feels familiar, am I right?”

Suddenly, the floor shook with a colossal boom from above. The ceiling collapsed, raining concrete and debris down upon the team.

***

Demon City

The Army of the True Cross battled the Specters of the Dark One-- technically. The battle looked more like a massacre. The grunts fired bolts and beams of energy that ripped through exorcists like rag dolls.

Exorcists countered with spells flaring, guns blazing and swords slashing. But their attacks accomplished little to nothing.

Shura moved alongside her troops, slashing past Specters that tried to overwhelm her.

Dabo!” She swung her sword, firing blades of violet energy that stabbed through Specters with bursts of spark.

A Specter fired bursts of dark power, splashing against Shura and hurling her backward, breaking her bones and singing her skin. She crashed and skid across the streets, snapping her neck, a meaningless death.

“Shura!” Rick yelled from nearby. A exorcist, and brother of the Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger, Rick wielded a pair of guns and opened fire.

His blasts sparked against Specters but caused no damage.

Rick’s students, the Shaded named Kyle, Rika and Enzo, moved in next to him.

Enzo gripped his talisman and shouted a spell. “Homage to the all-pervading Vajras, destroy!”

A bolt of Holy lightning shot from the skies and exploded, scattering several Specters. The attack gave the other students room to advance.

Kyle lunged forward. Blood surged through his veins, his muscles tightening beneath skin shaded the palest of white. He punched a Specter’s chest and helmet, knuckles pommeling armor.

The Specter swung the back of his fist, swatting the Shaded aside.

Rika thrust her palms. “Kitsune!”

She fired bolts of electricity shaped like foxes. The blasts splashed harmlessly across the lead Specter.

Enzo cursed beneath his breath. “This isn’t working! These things are way outside our power class!”

“Just keep fighting!” Kyle said as he climbed to his feet. “It’s the end of the world, this isn’t the time to hold back. There’s no giving up!”

***

Long, a Forsaken, walked through the ruins of Demon City while looking upward. “Dark One!...Dark One…!”

Nothing answered.

“What does this mean…” Long muttered, his voice cracking with insanity. “Why won’t you answer…I didn’t mean to forsake you, I only wanted to create the joy of destruction...”

“Long!” a voice shouted from the shadows.

Jarrod leapt at the Forsaken with a flying sidekick.

Long narrowed his eyes. An invisible burst of energy swatted Jarrod from the air.

Camille blurred into sight and stabbed her sai towards Long’s throat. He grabbed her by the wrist and flipped her off her feet.

“Foolish children,” Long muttered. “It’s too late for you to matter now. Too late for anything. The Dark One...is here.”

Jarrod tightened his fists. “Rinki Gai Sou.”

Black-and-gold energy flared like fire and wrapped around him, morphing him into the Black Lion.

Camille stepped beside him. She flared with jade energy, morphing into Green Chameleon.

Black Lion swung a punch that ebbed with energy. “Fist of the Beast King!”

Green Chameleon thrust her fist. “Snaring Strike Fist!”

Black Lion fired a bolt of black-and-gold energy shaped like the head of a lion, and Green Chameleon fired a bolt of twirling jade energy.

Long shifted into his monster form and swatted the blasts aside. The villain thrust his hand, firing a barrage of golden energy bursts from his palm. The blasts smashed the two heroes with bursts of spark, hurling them backward.

Black Lion crashed and rolled to his feet, just in time to block a flurry of punches and kicks from Long.

A voice shouted from nearby. “Stop!”

The voice belonged to Arthur Angel, Paladin of the True Cross and holder of the Kamen Rider Cross powers.

“All of you reek of evil!” Arthur shouted. “You will be purified by my blade, as I, Arthur Angel, Paladin of the True Cross, keeper of-”

Long fired an energy burst that blasted through the paladin’s head, killing him instantly.

“No,” Long muttered. “No more. It’s all ending. It’s all over.”

***

Azmodai’s mansion

The Hurricane Power Rangers had gathered in Azmodai’s mansion along with the Violet Wolf Jungle Fury Ranger, White Rhino Jungle Fury Ranger, Garo and his fellow Hellfire Knights.

They found Graendal waiting, not Azmodai. And Graendal sprang her trap.

The floor exploded from below. Dozens of White Jokers surged from the opening, pouring into the mansion and attacking everything that moved, Ranger and demon alike.

Riders followed from behind. Kamen Rider Blade, Kamen Rider Garren, Kamen Rider Chalice, Kamen Rider Leangle, and Kamen Rider Black RX. They kicked and punched through the White Jokers, trying to hold the villains back. They failed.

Aginor-- a Forsaken, and creator of the White Jokers-- moved among his pets. He smiled at the sight of their power and ferocity.

Kamen Rider Chalice slashed past two Jokers and leapt at Aginor. The Rider angled his descent and chopped towards the Forsaken’s head. But a forearm blocked the blow and kicked Chalice backward. Serrator-- barely living-- had stepped protectively in front of his master.

Kamen Rider Chalice dashed forward and slashed upward. Serrator dodged. Chalice twisted his grip and slashed towards Aginor. But Serrator pushed his master aside.

Aginor laughed. “He’s quite loyal.”

“You made him that way,” Chalice said, his voice cold.

The Rider reached to his belt, pulled out the Seven of Hearts, and swiped the card through his bow: “BIO”

He thrust the weapon and fired a vine, which lashed around Aginor. He snapped the Forsaken off his feet, swung him around, and bashed him into Serrator.

***

Kamen Rider Blade found himself surrounded by Aginor’s five generals, the Greed: Ankh, Kazari, Uva, Gamel, Mezool, Giru. They pommeled him with punches, kicks, and energy blasts, but he fought back with swings of his sword, slashing the villains with bursts of spark.

***

Kamen Rider Chalice stepped back. He swiped the King of Hearts card through his buckler, triggering the command: “EVOLUTION”

His 13 cards shot from his belt, formed a straight line in mid-air, and glowed with power. One-by-one, the cards shot at Chalice and splashed across his armor, powering him up into Wid Mode.

He pounced and kicked Aginor upside the head.

Serrator moved in from behind.

Chalice spun and swung his blades, slashing Serrator with bursts of spark.

The Rider hopped backward and combined his blades into a bow. He slid his Wild Card through the weapon: “WILD”

Chalice triggered a massive burst of energy that stabbed towards Aginor. But Serrator slapped the blast aside.

Meanwhile, several White Jokers stepped back. They pulled cards from their belts and slid the cards through their belt bucklers, which spoke the commands:

“DORA KNIGHT”

“DORA MINOTAUR”

“DORA LIZANATOR”

“DORA ARMADILLO”

“BLUE GLOBBER”

“SKELEKRON"

Other White Jokers did the same, swiping cards through their belts, which spoke the commands:

“TRIFIRE”

“CYCLOPTER”

“THUNDERON”

“FALCAR”

“TERRAMOLE”

“TOXIPOD”

“DORA TURBAN SHELL”

More…

“DORA STAG BEETLE”

“KUMO KAIJIN”

“KURONEKO KAIJIN”

And more…

“TURBINE ORG”

“PLUG ORG”

“BARBED WIRE ORG”

One-by-one, the White Jokers transformed. Dozens of them ebbed with energy and took the form of monsters, demons, aliens and creatures from the champions’ past.

***

Graendal leaned back and watched the carnage unfold through the massive ballroom. She smiled and twirled her fingers, using her powers to reach out and compel one of the Rangers: Navy Thunder.

***

Images danced through Navy Thunder’s mind. The White Jokers started to blur. He heard a laugh. He heard himself, his subconscious.

“You deserve this,” the voice whispered.

The hallucinations intensified. He saw White Jokers impale Rachel and slash Hunter to pieces.

“No!” Navy Thunder shouted.

He slashed past two White Jokers and kneeled onto the ground, surrounded by mist. In his mind, he saw an image of Hunter and Rachel, dead. He cradled Rachel’s body.

“No, no, no…” he muttered. “Come on, get up, don’t do this to me…”

His subconscious scoffed. “This is what happens when you anchor your sanity to other people…”

***

Hurricane Blue leaned next to Navy Thunder. “Blake...Blake! Snap out of it. Whatever you’re seeing, it’s not real...”

“It is!” He pushed her aside and swung his staff, slashing her to the ground.

Crimson Thunder moved towards his brother to hold him back. But the Navy Thunder Ranger hurled a bolt of lightning that bashed the Crimson Ranger backward.

***

Hurricane Green dashed at Graendal. “Get out of his head!”

She lifted her hand. The Green Ranger dropped to his knees. Smiling, the Forsaken walked towards him.

“Why do you fight so hard when you have already lost?” she asked, her voice like a purr. “I can feel the Dark One’s power...the True Power...his strength is mine.”

***

A few miles north, in a blackened landscape covered with mist and smog, Azmodai stood on a hill of jagged rock. The First Demon looked upward.

“Do you see me now, father?!” Azmodai shouted into the skies. “I have delivered to you this entire world, this entire existence! You are free by my design!”

Silence. Only black clouds and darkness answered.

“Nothing?! I am so far beneath you, that you would forsake me? Even as I bring you your triumph?!”

Still, silence.

“Answer me, Dark One!” he shouted, trembling with rage. “Answer me!”

“This is so ironic,” a voice said from behind. Simon Kaden stepped from the shadows. “You...the psychopath who made dozens of demon children. That man...you...have daddy issues?”

Azmodai regained his composure and smiled, with arrogance. “Dearest Simon. I see that you-”

“Shut up,” Simon said, his hands rolled into fists. “Just shut up.”

“Now, now, control that temper of yours, boy,” Azmodai said mockingly. “That’s not how foster mommy and foster daddy raised you, is it?”

Simon said nothing, but his glare spoke volumes.

Azmodai smirked. “Why come after me, child? Revenge? For giving you life?”

“This...all of this...is your fault.”

Azmodai glanced upward while leaning back. “And weren’t you going to save us all by slaying the mighty Dark One? Then using his power to reshape reality?”

Simon shook his head. “I...saw the Ultimate Secret. Killing the Dark One...it wouldn’t work. It’s all...everything is...pointless.”

“Ah, the Final Prophecy. The Ultimate Secret and its madness. I suppose that explains why you look so disheveled.”

Simon said nothing.

“Tell me, son. What is your grand plan now?” Simon said nothing. And Azmodai laughed. “You don’t know, do you? You’re lost. So you come crawling back to daddy dearest.”

Simon lunged forward. “Whirling Knuckle!”

He swung a punch that twirled with black wind energy.

***

The Ginga Forrest

Tyler stayed low in the bushes. He recognized the darkness that covered the forest like smog.

“The Shadow Line…” he whispered.

He closed his eyes and reached into the power within the core of his very essence. The One Power. And the Power Cosmic. The energy that turned the Wheel of Time, and the fire of creation itself.

He knew what he needed to do. He needed to reunite the Rangers of his imagination. The Rail Rangers.

Always happy to see an update (:. Having the White Jokers transform into old monsters is a nice touch, it ups the stakes and gives more justification to the legendary war. I mean, ya'know, if the degradation of all existence didn't already facilitate that.

Glad you liked it! I was going to wait until November but figured a couple days early wouldn't hurt.

This is fun stuff to write, although I fear that in trying to illustrate that everything is a cluster-fuck in the story at this point, I've made the story itself a cluster-fuck. But...that's OK.

Are you ACTUALLY making the Rail Rangers... the fracking ToQGer, the lynchpin? You are crazier then I thought, and I love every minute of it.

He already did though, offscreen Tommy and Ashley found Tyler and got him back.

Weeeeeeeeell. Tyler is important. Tyler happened to become a Rail Ranger. And...the Shadow Line has been important for spreading a lot of darkness. Sooooo...

Tyler is the son of the Dragon and the Phoenix so my plan with him as been the same from the start. It's just that now he happens to be a Rail Ranger as a kid, and we know he grows up to be Gokai Red after time and space shatter.

This is true! They don't know he was a Rail Ranger though. As I'm writing this I still can't believe how much I loved ToQger, I swore it off immediately but then once I finally watched it a year later...so good.

Chapter 12: War! Lost All Along

Beyond all space and time

Reality shattered, leaving shards of time and space in an endless void of chaos and madness. Within the void, the Ultimate Power Rangers gathered to learn the secrets of the End of All. Using Ranger Keys, they unlocked Time Shards to slowly unravel the history of existence's downfall.

The Shards revealed this story.


***

Somewhere? Nowhere?

“Snake Bite Strike!”

“Web of Deception!”

“Black Lightning Flash!”

The Dark Warlords attacked, lashing out with bolts of energy and power. Secmet fired strands of red energy shaped like snakes. Kayl ignited bursts of black lightning. And Dayus hurled spears that glowed with violet energy and poison.

The Green Dragon Ranger dodged with ease. “Been there, done that, you freaks.”

Green Ranger unsheathed his Dragon Dagger and struck back, slashing the Warlords with bursts of spark.

“Dragon Claw!”

He hopped backward and slashed through a streak of green energy, firing a blade of jade power that crashed through the villains, hurling them backward.

The Green Ranger grabbed his Master Morpher, thrust it forward, and flipped it open.

“Chakra, ignite!”

Energy flashed around him as he morphed into the Red Dragon Ranger.

He lunged forward and punched his evil doppelganger in the face.

“This is getting too easy,” he said into the darkness, to the Dark One himself. “Aren’t you supposed to be stronger than this?”

The Red Ranger summoned his golden-hilted sword, the Ryuuseiken, with a flash of red light. He stabbed the blade into the ground with a burst of red energy. He channeled The Power, as many strands as he could, and used that energy to craft. To create.

His armor flared with red light that pierced through the darkness. “Let me show you a world where there’s no Dark One…” he said. “A world where you’re back in your cage…”

***

Tommy stepped forward as a roadway formed itself from threads of light in front of him. His foot fell on a bright, clean sidewalk as he passed from nothingness to majesty.

He looked out upon his city, his home. Angel Grove.

Skyscrapers shined with neatly polished glass, reflecting the sunlight from the blue skies above. The air smelled fresh.

Couples held hands as they walked through the park, vibrant with green trees and flowers. Women and children laughed as they mulled about storefronts.

No Rangers. No monsters. Just peace. A final peace.

No...not final yet, he thought. This isn’t real yet. He’d built this reality out of threads of what could be, of mirrors of the world as it now played out. It wasn’t set.

For the first time since entering this vision of his own design, his confidence shook. How can I...

The vision quivered, pavement beneath his feet buzzing, buildings shaking and wavering.

People stopped in place, motionless, sound dying.

Down an alley, he saw a darkness appear like a pinprick that expanded, engulfing everything near it, sucking them in. It grew to the size of a building, slowly expanding.

YOUR DREAM IS WEAK.

Tommy asserted his will, and the quivering stopped.

People who had frozen in place resumed walking, and the comfortable chatter sprang up again. Soft wind blew down the streets, rustling banners proclaiming celebration and festivity.

“I’ll make it happen,” Tommy said. “This...all this...is your failure. Happiness. Growth. Love…”

THESE PEOPLE ARE MINE NOW. I WILL TAKE THEM.

“You’re darkness,” Tommy said. “Darkness can’t push back light. Darkness only exists when light fails. When it flees. I won’t fail. I won’t flee. You can’t win as long as I’m here.”

WE SHALL SEE.

Tommy walked into a school, Angel Grove North Community High School, his old school...and Simon’s old school.

Simon...

YOUR PARADISE IS FLAWED, ADVERSARY.

Darkness hung in a mirror to Tommy’s right. It reflected not the school hallway, but instead, the Dark One’s presence.

YOU THINK YOU CAN ELIMINATE SUFFERING? EVEN IF YOU WIN, YOU WILL NOT. ON THOSE PERFECT STREETS, MEN ARE STILL MURDERED AT NIGHT. CHILDREN GO HUNGRY DESPITE THE EFFORTS OF YOUR MINIONS. THE WEALTHY EXPLOIT AND CORRUPT; THEY MERELY DO SO QUIETLY.

“It’s better,” Tommy said. “It’s good…”

IT IS NOT ENOUGH, AND WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH. YOUR DREAM IS FLAWED. YOUR DREAM IS A LIE. I AM THE ONLY HONESTY YOUR WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN.

The Dark One attacked him.

A burst of wind so terrible, it threatened to rip Tommy’s skin from his bones. He stood tall, eyes narrowed toward the nothing, crossing his arms behind his back. The attack ripped away the vision-- the beautiful city, the laughing people, the monument to learning and peace. The Dark One consumed it, and once again, it became mere possibility.

***

Corinith City

Darkness spread through Corinth like dense fog, bleeding through Tranza’s dimensional barriers.

The Red Jet Force Ranger leapt through the air and chopped his sword at the villain. But Darkness wrapped around the Ranger, filling him with hopelessness and loss. He crashed and rolled onto his side, dropping his blade.

Through the fog he saw visions of Marie, his fiancé, who he lost during the Vyram’s first assault on Earth years ago.

“No…” he whispered.

***

The Black Jet Force Ranger charged at Tranza from behind. But Kamen Rider Kaixa and Kamen Rider Delta blocked his path.

Aero Black scoffed with disbelief. “Really?”

Delta and Kaixa fired their blasters.

The attacks bashed the Black Ranger with massive bursts of spark, hurling him backward. He crashed and skid across the broken streets. Darkness enveloped him as he rolled into a crouched stance. Through the fog, he saw Kirsten in the arms of Christopher.

The illusion shimmered. The image of Kirsten looked at Vince, knitting her brow with disbelief.

“Did you think I would ever really love you?” the illusion of Kirsten asked, snuggling closer to Christopher. “You’re broken. Damaged…”

***

Darkness wrapped around Time Pink.

“Jenn!” Tim Red shouted.

He ran towards her, but darkness blocked his view and bled beneath his armor. The Red Ranger collapsed to his knees.

Three ghostly images leaned down next to him: Eric, Damien, and Sion.

“You let us die…” the image of Eric, Time Fire said. “You destroyed the future…”

The illusion grabbed Time Red’s throat.

***

Darkness bled beneath the streets. The fog ebbed through rubble, flowing into the collapsed cavern that had trapped the Lightspeed Rangers. Fallen beams and chunks of concrete pinned the Rangers down, and they couldn’t move.

Images danced through the fog, and the images spoke.

“You are orphans. All of you, unwanted…”

***

Within the Enetron Matrix, the RPM, Digi, Overdrive and Bio-Beast teams fell through an endless vortex that crackled with stands of digital energy and lightning.

Dark Buster dove through the vortex towards the falling Rangers.

The villain grabbed Digi Red by the helmet. They plummeted downward, deeper into crackling darkness.

“What makes you so special?” Dark Buster asked. “You...your friends...you mortals...what makes a soul a soul?”

The Red Digi Ranger screamed as he felt the pressure build within his helmet. Dark Buster grabbed tighter, and tighter.

“Let’s find out.” Dark Buster hissed.

The villain smashed the Red Ranger’s head with a massive burst of energy that shattered his armor, killing him. Digi Red’s body tore apart and dissolved into nothingness.

“NO!” Digi Blue shouted.

He slapped his bracer, which spoke the command: “POWERED CUSTOM - IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!”



He morphed into his powered-up custom armor and dove towards Dark Buster.

“Gorilla punch!” The Blue Ranger swung an energized punch.

But Dark Buster grabbed the punch and kicked Digi Blue upside the head.

Digi Yellow twirled downward to assist. She slapped her bracer: “POWERED CUSTOM - IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!”



She morphed into her powered-up custom armor.

“Rapid Kick!” The Yellow Ranger pulsed with power and shot towards Dark Buster with a flying sidekick.

Dark Buster grabbed and snapped her leg, punched her helmet, and punched through her chest with a burst of spark, killing her.

The villain laughed, filled with more power than ever, power he seemed to draw from the very darkness that seeped through the digital data around him.

The Rangers and Dark Buster dashed back and forth throughout their descent, exchanging blows and bursts of energy.

The Red Bio Beast Ranger dove at Dark Buster from behind. The Red Ranger stabbed his blade into the villain’s back armor and held tight.

The Red Overdrive Ranger dove at Dark Buster from the front. Titan Red armed his Drive Lancer and swung downward, slashing the villain with a burst of spark.

***

The six Samurai Rangers leapt from their Megazord and charged towards the Enetron Matrix. Above, the Phantom Ranger and Turbo Megazord battled the robos possessed by demons.

Samurai Green cursed beneath is breath. “What’s the definition of insanity again? Oh yeah, exactly what we’re doing.”

They stopped at the foot of the matrix, which ebbed with crimson power and strands of digital code. Darkness flowed throughout the entire city, blanketing the streets with fog.

“Now what?” Samurai Gold asked.

The Red Ranger flipped open his morpher. “Our Symbol Power. If this thing is really possessed...we’re going to exorcise it.”

***

Demon City

Slowly, Kamen Rider Kabuto climbed to his feet. Fatigue burned through his muscles and joints, which felt brittle and about to break.

He had never felt such pain. He tried to remember a saying of his grandmother’s, something to motivate him, but nothing came to mind.

Xanathor kicked him upside the head; he flipped backward and crashed onto his shoulder, sending needles of pain stabbing through his upper body.

“You were made with my power…” Xanathor growled. “But you are nothing more than the bug mirrored on your armor.”

The villain lifted his foot and stomped towards the fallen Rider.

With a sudden burst of strength, Kabuto caught the villain’s foot and pushed, sending him staggering backward.

The Rider climbed to his feet, crouched low, as he could barely stand.

“My power is my own,” he said in his calm, casual voice, even though his insides screamed with agony. He lifted his hand towards the sky. “I am the one who will walk the path of heaven, to rule over all: Tendou Souji.”

Golden light flashed overhead, shot downward, and landed in the Rider’s palm. The light formed an enhanced version of the Kabuto Zector called the Hyper Zector.

Kabuto snapped the Hyper Zector onto his belt.

“Hyper Cast Off.”

He flipped the zector’s switch; it spoke the command: “HYPER CAST OFF” His armor flared with energy and powered up; the zector spoke the command: “CHANGE HYPER BEETLE”

He morphed into his Hyper Form.



Xanathor chopped his blade. Kabuto blocked with his forearm and side-kicked the villain, knocking him several steps backward.

Kabuto pressed ahead with a flying knee strike, bashing the villain upside the head. The Rider landed and launched a flurry of punches, pommeling the villain’s chest armor.

***

DECA Shadow grabbed DECA Red by the arm.

“Get up, Nat,” he said as he helped the Red Ranger to his feet. “This fight isn’t over.”

***

Kabuto stepped back and placed a hand over his buckler.

“Hyper Kick.” He activated his zector, which spoke the command: “MAXIMUM RIDER POWER - HYPER KICK”

He spun, his kick crackling with lightning. The blow struck Xanathor’s head, sending the villain staggering backward.

Kamen Rider Kabuto pressed forward with a flurry of punches, bashing the villain’s armor, each blow forcing Xanathor back a step.

Xanathor caught Kabuto’s wrist. “You want to walk the path of heaven, you insect? By all means...do so.”

Xanathor tore the horn from Kabuto’s helmet.

***

Brajira floated in midair. The Dark Angel extended his arms, channeling power from the three giant wedges in Demon City.

The demon smiled. “Now...to elevate my New Creation!”

Suddenly, a voice shouted: “Mane of Flame!”

A wave of fire washed through the skies, swatting Brajira from the air.

The villain crashed and skid across the war-torn streets. When he looked up, he saw his attackers: The Galaxy Rangers, along with the Seraph Rangers.

Galaxy Red’s palms still crackled with flame.

Brajira narrowed his eyes at the sight of the Galaxy team. “You should have stayed in your forest.”

He thrust his hand with a burst of crimson lightning. The Rangers scattered as the blast exploded between them.

Seraph Red and Galaxy Red leapt towards their opponent with blades held high. They landed with powerful chops. But Brajira snapped his wings, blocking their blows.

Galaxy Red hopped backward and energized his sword.

“Flame Slash!” He swung through a streak of red energy, firing a wave of power that splashed against Brajira with bursts of spark.

The other four Galaxy Rangers moved in one-by-one, their blades glowing with their elemental powers.

“Hurricane Gust!”

“Rapids Strike!”

“Thunder Sweep!”

“Flower Heart!”

They swung their blades through streaks of power, slashing Brajira with massive bursts of spark. Each blow sent the villain staggering backward.

The Seraph Rangers slid their weapon cards into their morphers, which spoke: “SUMMON BATTLE GEAR”

They armed their weapons and attacked, swarming around Brajira with all their power and strength, slashing him with bursts of spark, battering his body.

The villain stepped back, lifted his sword, and switched from defense to offense. He slashed Seraph Blue to the ground and stomped his chest.

Seraph Red slashed towards Brajira’s head. But the villain blocked and hacked the Red Ranger aside.

The Red Ranger rolled across the ground. Slowly, he climbed to his feet as his teammates regrouped around him.

“Weapons,” he said. “Let’s bring ‘em together.”

The Rangers combined their weapons into a massive bazooka.

“Seraph Blaster!” They slid their Gosei Dynamic cards onto the weapon, powering it up. “Dynamic Victory Charge!”

They fired a burst of golden energy shaped like their team emblem.

Brajira extended his wings and fired a wide energy beam of his own, splashing against the Rangers’ attack.

The impact exploded with feedback, sending tendrils of power and shockwaves smashing the Rangers off their feet.

Seraph Red used his sword for balance and climbed to his feet.

Brajira stalked towards the Ranger.

“You don’t even know what you fight for…” the villain practically hissed. “Your world is already gone. Your entire universe. The multiverse. All of creation...enveloped in shadow. Lost. There’s no saving it. There’s only the hope of my New Creation.”

“We...We never surrender,” Seraph Red said.

The Rangers pulled out their blasters and fired lances of energy, blasting the Dark Angel with bursts of spark.

Seraph Red leapt towards Brajira and somersaulted through the air. Golden wings flared from his back, and his sword ebbed with red power.

“Red Dynamic!”

He chopped through a streak of energy.

Brajira lifted his word to block the blow.

But the Red Ranger’s blade chopped through the villain’s sword, shattering it. The Red Dynamic slashed through the middle of Brajira, explosions ripping through the Dark Angel’s body.

Brajira collapsed to his knees and toppled to his side, secondary explosions sparking through is body.

Before the Rangers could make another move, a limp form flew through the air and landed in the center of the battleground. They recognized the limp form immediately: Kamen Rider Kabuto, his horn torn from his helmet, smoke sizzling from his armor plating.

Xanathor stalked onto the scene.

***

Azmodai’s Mansion

Simon kneed Azmodai upside the head. The villain staggered backward but managed to grab Simon by the ankle and throw him overhead. The former ranger flipped through the air and landed on his feet.

Azmodai smiled mockingly. “Quite the acrobat.”

“I’m going to kill you.”

“Yes, do try.”

Simon lunged with a flurry of kicks Azmodai blocked.

“You know…” Azmodai said as he sidestepped. “I never was much for this hand-to-hand nonsense. And yet...I feel invigorated by it. Perhaps it’s the energy of the Dark One, filling me with-”

Simon kneed Azmodai’s gut and elbowed his face.

“I told you to shut up!” Simon shouted with a jump-kick upside Azmodai’s head.

Azmodai crashed and rolled across the ground, laughing as he pushed himself to his feet. “Such raw talent, so wasted on the likes of you.” He laughed again and rolled his shoulders. “It’s quite funny, actually. You dreamed of being a hero, of excitement and adventure...but where have those dreams gotten you? Being a hero isn’t about fame and fun. It’s about facing death. Real death. Sometimes it’s pointless...sometimes people die without meaning...but in the end. Well...in the end, everything dies, doesn’t it? So what’s the point.”

Simon placed his left hand over his face. Dark energy ebbed from his palm and washed over his body. A white, bone-like mask formed, like the face of a lion, along with a third eye. A black, sleeveless tunic of leather wrapped around his body; two straps of black leather wrapped around his upper arms, his skin appearing chalk-white. Straps of black, with silver daggers, wrapped around his thighs.

He wore the demon sword Uramasa strapped to his back. The silver hilt of the Dark Man’s sword, Kuroryuuken, hung from the side of his belt. And his black katana appeared in his hand.

Azmodai smirked. “Is that what you do when faced with the truth? Hide?”

Simon lifted his sword. “You ruined my life from the moment I was born.”

The villain nodded with pride. “Quite true.”

Simon lunged and slashed his blade.

Azmodai pulsed with dark flame and morphed into the Soul Fire Armor of Kiba the Dark Knight.



The villain spun his two-handed axe, parried Simon’s sword, and slashed his chest with a burst of spark, whipping him backward.

“Azmodai!” a voice shouted from behind.

Azmodai turned to see Samuel run to the scene, flanked by R.J. and Dom.

Samuel wasted no time. He unsheathed his sword and circled the blade above his head.

“Garo.”

A loop of golden energy slid over his body and morphed him into the armor of the Golden Knight Garo.



R.J. and Dom armed their morphers. “Jungle Beast! Spirit, unleash!”

Their auras flashed around them as they morphed into the Violet Wolf Ranger and White Rhino Ranger.

Garo tackled Azmodai. The impact hurled them through the air with the speed of a missile, as they twisted back and forth, trying to wrestle each other into submission.

Azmodai managed to grab his axe. He chopped, bashing the Golden Knight downward.

Garo crashed against the ground and skid across the dirt like an out-of-control meteor, tearing through trees and bashing through stone.

Azmodai, his armor darker than midnight, aimed his descent towards Garo.

But Simon dashed through the air with his black katana.

Getsuga Tensho!” He slashed through a streak of power, firing a blade of black energy tinted with red.

The blast struck Azmodai with bursts of spark, hurling him backward. The villain crashed and skid through the dark woods.

Slowly, Azmodai climbed to his feet. He looked up as Violet Wolf and White Rhino charged towards him.

The Violet Wolf Ranger flipped a switch on his wrist morpher and channeled his ShiGeki into the weapon. “Geki Waza! Don Don Ken!”

The White Rhino Ranger armed his fist weapon. “Nen Nen Dan, Midareuchi!”

The Violet Wolf Ranger fired a bolt of violet energy that crackled like flame. And the White Rhino Ranger fired a barrage of orange energy bursts.

The attacks blasted Azmodai with bursts of spark. But he charged through the explosions with his axe held high.

Azmodai leapt through the air and landed with a chop, slashing White Rhino with bursts of spark.

“This is a family matter,” Azmodai said, his voice muffled through his black armor. “You do not belong.”

Azmodai grabbed White Rhino by the wrist and twisted, snapping the limb. The villain kicked White Rhino, dropping him to the ground.

Azmodai charged his axe and chopped, hacking through the White Ranger’s helmet and killing him.

“Dom, no!” Violet Wolf shouted. “You son-of-a-bitch, I’ll kill you!”

Violet Wolf pounced with a flying knee strike. Azmodai grabbed the Ranger’s ankle and threw him overhead.

***

Corinith

Aero Red closed his eyes tight. Illusions blanketed his mind. Darkness gripped his soul. But he screamed and fought back, forcing the images and feelings aside, and replacing those feelings with another-- the feeling of determination.

The Red Jet Force Ranger circled around Tranza. Sword streaking through energy, he hacked and slashed, striking the villain with bursts of spark that ripped through his body.

The Ranger hopped backward and armed his fist weapon.

“Wing Gauntlet!”

He swung an energized punch that bashed Tranza’s chest, forcing him to his knees.

Secondary explosions erupted through the villain’s body. And strands of energy thrashed from his armor.

Tranza laughed, a maddening sound. “I just wanted...a new home…” he said between laughs, as he started to sob. “A new home...for my people. For…”

He laughed, until his last breath caught in his throat. The villain’s own energy failed, consuming his body until all that remained was dust.

Tranza, the last of the Vyram, had died.

***

Aero Black grasped his side as he regrouped with his teammates. They looked into the distance, to where the Enetron Matrix stabbed into the sky, ebbing with darkness.

Aero Red tightened his fists. His body burned with fatigue and pain. He knew his teammates felt the same. But they still had work to do. “Hold it together just a little longer, team,” he said. “Just one more fight.”

The Black Ranger scoffed. “That’s optimistic.”

“Getting tired on me, Vince?” Aero Red asked.

“You wish,” the Black Ranger said. He leaned against a broken-down car and nodded towards the distance. “You guys go ahead, I’ll catch up.”

“But Vince…” White Swan started to say, concerned.

He waved her off. “I’m fine, just give me a minute. You guys go…”

The Red Ranger took the White Ranger by the hand. “Let’s go. We don’t have time.” He sensed her hesitation. “Come on, you know Vince. He’ll be OK.”

Aero Red looked to the Black Ranger. “Take a breather, Vince, but catch up when you can. We need you, man.”

The Black Ranger nodded, but waved the Red Ranger off.

***

Vince’s armor powered down with a burst of black light. He watched his teammates run towards the Enetron Matrix in the distance.

The ranger grasped his side, wet with blood. Pain and dizziness flooded his senses. No longer able to stand, he collapsed against the side of the car and slid onto the ground.

The darkness still swept through his mind, with illusions of sorrow. He saw Kirsten in Chris’s arms. He saw them walk down the aisle to get married. And he wept. Kirsten. Just…just be happy…

The darkness flowed through his mind until he bled out, dying with a final breath.

***

Digi Blue and Dark Buster landed on a platform that hovered in the middle of the Enetron Matrix vortex.

Digi Blue twirled his dagger and charged with a chop. Dark Buster parried, round-kicked the Blue Ranger’s side, and slashed his chest, sending him staggering backward.

Dark Buster tackled Digi Blue, and they tumbled off the pedestal. The two opponents started plummeting into the vortex of digital energy and shadow. The villain chopped and pressed his blade against the Blue Ranger’s dagger, forcing them downward.

Weapons sparked against one another, with discharges of power and energy. The villain twirled and slashed the Blue Ranger aside.

Dark Buster vanished with a burst of power, reappeared behind Digi Blue, and slashed the Ranger’s back. The Blue Ranger twirled in midair to strike. But the villain vanished and reappeared again, slashing the Ranger with a burst of spark.

The Blue Ranger spiraled into the void. He used his dagger and forearms to block Dark Buster’s assault, blade sparking against digital steel.

Dark Buster kicked away from the Blue Ranger. The villain spun and swung wide, slashing through a streak of crimson energy that hacked the Blue Ranger with massive bursts of spark, ripping through his custom armor.

The Blue Ranger’s armor pulsed with strands of digital code and static. His custom armor exploded, exposing his standard Ranger form.

Digi Silver and Digi Gold dove towards their teammate.

The two Rangers lifted their swords. Digital energy blades formed around the Silver Ranger like the horns of a stag beetle. A pronged energy blade formed in front of the Gold Ranger like the horn of a kabuto beetle.

They swung their swords, firing the energy blades; the blades smashed Dark Buster one-after-another, with bursts of spark and flame.

Dark Buster thrust his hands with bursts of demonic energy that smashed the Gold and Silver Rangers, sending them tumbling out of control.

A red blur dove at the villain from nearby.

Red Falcon chopped Dark Buster, spun, and slashed the villain.

“Hello again,” the Red Bio-Beast Ranger said as they plummeted downward. “You done with the Digmon? Because I have a real challenge for you.”

---To be continued…Chapter 13

Thanks for checking!

Also Kamen Rider TheBee and Kamen Rider Cross, and Shura. Not in this last chapter, but two chapters or so ago I think. Also, Brajira is not confirmed dead yet, just in really, really, really bad shape. They don't die until I say they are dead, killed, or disintegrate into nothingness.

Ah

Behold the weird fella moving across the battlefield with a pair of bellows proclaiming: He's not dead, just nearly dead!

Here are a few snippets from the next chapter. Yay for previews.


PREVIEW 1:

Adam and Rocky stood side-by-side. They armed their Aura Bracers.

“Chakra Ignite!” they shouted. “Aura Power!”

They connected their bracers, sparking their chi and morphing them into their armor. They snapped into fighting stances.

“Lion Ranger! Heaven Illusion Star! Green!”

“Tenma Ranger! Heaven Gravity Star! Blue!”

“Power of the stars…” the Green Ranger shouted. “Brought down! Heaven Star Task Force!”

Together, they shouted: “Power Rangers!”


PREVIEW 2:

A wave of monsters blocked Hurricane Green from Graendal.

The Green Ranger pulled a ball from behind his back. “Sonic Style! Spinning Barrage Jutsu!”

He tossed the ball upward as he would a baseball. The ball created dozens of sonic echoes that dropped in front of the Ranger. Hurricane Green spun like a tornado and swung his holstered sword like a bat to knock the spheres towards the monsters. The sonic spheres exploded against the villains with massive bursts of spark.


PREVIEW 3

Kamen Rider Chalice lunged at the undead form of Serrator. He swung his bow up and down, slashing the villain with bursts of spark, sending him staggering backward. The Rider pressed forward with a side-kick, bashing the Forsaken’s chest.

Nearby, Blade, Leangle and Garren smashed past their foes and regrouped with Chalice.

The four Riders swarmed around Serrator and struck with overwhelming force. Blade slashed the villain with a burst of spark. Chalice swung upward and slashed the creature’s chest. Leangle swung his staff; the weapon clubbed the monster’s head. Garren bashed a round-kick against the monster’s side.

The attacks knocked Serrator off his feet, and the monster tumbled across the ground.


PREVIEW 4

“Enough talk,” DECA Shadow said. He looked upward towards the twisted monstrosity that had been Xanathor. “It’s time to combine our forces. Mobilize your zords, Rangers!”

Seraph Red...just kind of stood there.

Seraph Black nudged him. “Dude, Troy, that’s us.”

“Wha? Uh, right,” Seraph Red said.

The Rangers grabbed their Totem Morphers.

“Summon Totem Zords!” the Rangers shouted. They slid their zord cards into their morphers, which spoke the command: “SUMMON ZORDS.”

END SNIPPETS
