Rai once again was letting Y2K drag him on an ‘adventure’ through the middle of absolute digital nowhere. It was literally a barren waste, filled with rocks, dirt as dark as rocks, and brown skeletal bushes. He was surprised he hadn’t seen a tumbleweed yet.
Then up ahead he saw what looked like an Ogremon and three smaller goblin-like digimon. Despite looking scary, the only Ogremon they’d met so far was a kind seamstress. So naturally Y2K approached with no fear and plenty of excitement, assuming this Ogremon would also be friendly.
Rai on the other hand noted the Ogremon was equipped with not only a club, but a whip.
“Hellllooooo!” Y2K hollered as he waved his large hand over his head at the green group
Instantly the look of annoyance on the Goblimon was apparent. The Ogremon however turned and asked “Hello? What do you want?” a tad impatient and a tad bemused. Then he pointed at Rai. “Is that your pet?
Rai was dumbfounded. The green giant was asking if he was Y2K’s pet? Y2K on the other hand looked around naively and cheerfully said. “I don’t have any pets!”
The Ogremon looked at Rai like he was some sort of interesting lizard. “So what is it you want?” he asked Y2K, “You have some sorta business with us? Or are you just here to annoy me?”
“He just wants to make friends.” Rai stated blandly.
“Huah? This pink thing a friend of yours then? Pah! You think you're funny? Can’t you see how scary we are? Are you mocking our intimidating stature by saying we look friendly!? C’mon boys, let's show this jellyfish how friendly we are! PUMMEL WHACK!” Ogremon cried as it punched the air and launched a dark flame in the shape of its face at Y2K.
The Keramon narrowly evaded the worst of the attack, but was still blasted aside, as Rai now with narrowed eyes, pulled out his digivice and recited the words;
“Digi Armor Energize…”
As Rai presented his D3, the D -Terminal in his pocket produced the Digi-Egg of Stoicism that flew to join with the Keramon.
“Keramon Armor Digivolve TO:” Y2K called out as he merged himself with the Digimental,
“GIZUMON, The Stoic Machine.” he buzzed in a metallic voice.
A short battle erupted between Gizumon and Ogremon, where Gizumon released a string of debilitating attacks, while Ogremon pummeled him with his club to less than average effect but with repeated ferocity. Gizumon may have won if the Goblimon hadn’t decided to join in, grabbing his wires, and pulling down on them, creating an opening for Ogremon to launch another face-flame-fist crying,
“PUMMEL WHACK!” causing Y2K to make a buzzer-like sound as the dark fire was shown to have full effect. The trio Goblimon continued to pull on his wires from behind, while beating his back with their smaller clubs.
Unable to focus on both a rear and frontal defense, Y2K sliced at Ogremon’s club with his AT-Helix, while only succeeding in lopping off a lopsided chunk off the end of it, now giving it another sharp point.
His armor was battered severely but holding when Ogremon repeated its most effective attack,
Taking the potent purple flame once more, his metal frame cracked and Y2K was forced to revert to a battered and unmoving rookie form, which Ogremon punted away.
“How friendly are we now?” Ogremon asked mockingly while he advanced on the fallen Digimon.
Seeing this caused something in Rai to break-- something that had gone unbroken for years and now-- “Y2K!” he screamed, calling out to his partner…
Y2K failed to respond, prompting Rai to rush to Y2K, recklessly covering him with his own body,
“Y2K!” he cried out to his partner desperately before a whip cracked across his back, sudden excruciating pain causing him to scream.
“Out of the way pink thing!” commanded Ogremon, lashing Rai with his whip again in an attempt to get him to move.
But desperately repeating Y2K’s name with more and more emotion, Rai clung protectively to his unconscious friend while his back was repeatedly struck with Ogremon’s whip, shredding his shirt, and fracturing his ribs.
“Hey! Hey move!” commanded the Ogremon, not understanding Rai’s actions.
But Rai couldn’t hear past the blood rushing in his head, the pain, and the irrational all consuming drive to protect his partner. He was hurt. He wasn’t moving… Why wasn’t he moving? “Y2K!!” he cried as all of his walls crumbled around him.
Rai’s bones were breaking, but he desperately tried to protect the Keramon with his body, unaware or uncaring that if the Ogremon wanted him dead, it would have been over instantly. If anything the Champion Level was being gentle.
Ogremon closed the distance and began to poke and prod Rai’s back, “Hey! Move already! This is between Digimon!” but as damaged as he was, each jab of Ogremon’s finger was as agonizing as the whip from before.
“I won’t let you… He’s not moving, just leave him alone!” he cried with unsuppressed outrage, fear and pain. It couldn’t end like this. Y2K wasn’t moving. Had he ever breathed to begin with? No… no no no no…
Finally as Rai’s tears fell on his partner, Y2K’s enormous head began to turn jerkily as if his neck was made of damaged clockwork. “Rai… don’t cry Rai…”
Tired of this however, Ogremon just flicked Rai out of the way, sending him sprawling in the dust. “He’s moving now.”
Broken and battered, Rai still reached for Y2K’s outstretched hand as a prismatic light suddenly shone from his D3 and bathed his partner in a radiance that reinvigorated Y2K, rising into the air, now wrapped by ribbons of light, and spinning rapidly.
“Keramon Digivolve TO:” he called out as the ribbons of light, for a moment completely covered him in an egg-like shape before unraveling to reveal a form Rai had never seen before.
“Chrysalimon!” declared what was now a large flying blue cocoon with no less than six tendrils emerging from its back, ending in what looked like large yellow knives.
“Rai? Do you think I can win?” the evolved Y2K asked his battered tamer.
What a strange, odd, and terribly stupid question… that somehow, Rai felt warranted what seemed at the time, a strange, odd, and terribly stupid answer.
The Goblimon trio made a three pronged rush at Y2K, while Ogremon wound up his fist.
“Pummel--” started Ogremon
“Chrysalis Thorn!” interrupted Y2K, firing off the yellow spikes around his collar.
“--Wha--?” finished Ogremon as he had to stop to swat the projectile coming at him out of the air.
Two of the Goblimon had been struck in the faces and torsos respectively, however and were badly injured.
Ogremon shot his fist through the air with a “PUMMEL WHACK!”, firing his face-flame at Y2K.
Chrysalimon took the hit from the ogre flame before calling “Misconnecting!” shooting into the air and rocketing down onto Ogremon, to crush him with his shell.
Ogremon caught and grappled with the chrysalis digimon-- that was remarkably heavy for something that floated through the air. “I can still take you--GAAH!”
Ogremon felt a sharp pain in his belly as he realized Y2K’s stinger was buried deep in his green flesh. “What the?!”
“Viral Enzyme!” cried Y2K, injecting harmful data directly into Ogremon’s body before the green giant threw the dangerous cocoon away from himself grunting as the stinger was ripped out. “Get off!”
The remaining Goblimon made a run for it while Y2K cried out the name of his next move, “Data Crusher!” as he sliced his tendril blades through Ogremon’s own configuration data.
Ogremon now severely injured, being eaten away by the virus injected by Chrysalimon’s stinger and only able to move at a sluggish pace due to damage to his configuration data, began to plead for, “Mercy…”
But Y2K wasn’t moved.
“I don’t eat Mercy.”
“E-eat? You don’t mean--No! Anything but that!” Ogremon didn't want to be loaded! He tried to turn around to run, but was in no condition to escape.
Taking advantage of the exposed back, Y2K lashed at Ogremon repeatedly with his tendrils, imitating what was done to Rai until the green champion’s data began to unravel.
Y2K without hesitating proceeded to ravenously load about 50% of Ogremon’s data before letting the rest go.
Rai didn't catch all of that, having been unable to move without horrible pain, "Y2K..."
Y2K hovered over Rai while his Tamer managed to send out an SOS signal with his digivice, knowing he wasn't in a condition to hop through a digi port.
Data Crusher: Slices at the opponent's configuration data with the tentacles extending from its back. This results in 50% movement lag as internal settings are maladjusted along with otherwise harmless visual irregularities, such as pixelation, discoloration, or texture swaps. (4 post cooldown, 2 post duration).
Misconnecting: Flies up in the air and squashes the enemy with its large body. It's just a bodyslam. Alternatively flings itself directly towards the enemy as a body check.
Viral Enzyme: Stabs the enemy with its stinger and injects harmful data. Injected data works to steadily deal continuous damage to the enemy's insides. (4 post duration. OPT).
Chrysalis Thorn: Fires one or more of the spikes that form its ‘collar’ as deadly projectiles, afterwards the spikes quickly appear to grow back or be replaced from within.
