As both groups were about to find out, Machinedramon were not only menaces at close range. No: they were formidable fortress types: at the cost of mobility, they would be able to produce powerful, wide-area attacks, while being able to take several attacks themselves.
Such was the case of the BlackMachinedramon: as the spinning claw would meet that shield, and the axe behind it, Skadi would not find the 'catch' that she was looking for. Rather, for the few seconds that that two attacks were in contact, she would see sparks flying up off of her axe, the force of the Machinedramon's swing felt all the way down to the core of her arms. A second later, the Machinedramon was forced to back-step by the force of its mirror shield - and as it did so, its foot would catch into the mud, causing the metal titan to briefly lose its footing.
That was enough for the monster to be rooted in place, largely unable to dodge the onslaught coming for him. The arm of that spinning claw was raised up, and subsequently shot through by the railgun blast and the deluge of Mae's makeshift claws. The first bore a hole straight through, and the second ripped the already-weakened arm to shreds, leaving an inoperable piece of metal.
... And with a puff of steam, the Machinedramon would dislodge the entire arm. With a scorch mark and a small hole through its helmet, from the AvengeKidmon's piercing rifle, the beast still stood - but it clearly knew that it was outmatched. Two super megas, a mega standing in front of him, and another behind?
If the BlackMachinedramon wanted to protect this tower, it would need to act beyond the capacity that it was working at right now. With that, the beast would stand astride, regaining its footing - its chest beginning to pulse, and slowly grow orange, as it built up to do something.
And that something was enough for the Wizardmon to swear. With the two tamers and Connor with him, the sorcerer pointed his staff forward, an ethereal barrier blocking the way to the ramp. Even Connor added to this, at least matching the Wizardmon's pose with his own:
"Pierce that one's core, quick! It's gonna blow!"
"Wolf, try and use the other one as cover!"
That was, perhaps, easier said than done. The WhiteMachinedramon was not under nearly as much pressure as the BlackMachinedramon. Silence managed to halt the fire of the barrage with her crescent blade, a deep cut made into that armored arm, but it still looked raring to go - just as that electrical spear slammed right into his arms.
As the arms sparked, he would swing out, in an effort to at least get Luke off of him, before he'd clamp both of his arms against the floor, and ready his own cannons. But, as the 'Giga Cannon' was being primed, that same electricity would spark, delaying the attack for a few seconds. But for the WhiteMachinedramon, it was worth the risk.
His back was against the wall. And if it got this off, the Giga Cannon that was forthcoming could hit a large part of this circular room at once!
BlackMachinedramon is critically wounded, and begins to self-destruct.
WhiteMachinedramon is delayed from attacking for one post - but readies Giga Cannon, regardless.
