Zephyr laughed, "Who doesn't? Well, minus the beef part, I'm a vegetarian." Zephyr sighed, "I'm just lucky to have such good friends to help pull me through. Especially the love of my life Monsoon, and my pet plant thing, Snapdragon. Wonder how those two are doing back home on Anticthon..." Zephyr said as he took the D-Reader from the armor to show Rainy some pictures of a tall, pink-haired female being that looked like a cross between a rabbit and a dragon, and a small, strange creature that looked like a googly-eyed cross between a carnivorous plant, a small dog, and a frog.
"Yep, it looks like the gang's all here!" Yvonne said as he used his armor's scanners to make sure the group was gathered. "So, how do we stop this guy?" He asked Billie, Selena, and Takeru. "Well, Build-a mentioned giving him gum, but I doubt that would be very helpful..." Bille said with a laugh. "Would probably help with his breath..." Takeru said flatly as he deactivated Gobannus' helmet and produced a can of iced green tea from his person and began to drink it. "I got more if anyone wants some..." He added. "However, Build-a did have a point in trying to weaponize positivity against him to cancel out his powers given that seems to be what he feeds off of." Bille said thoughtfully as Selena perked up. "That is why the Dragoon armors were created to counter him and the Netherworlders." Selena said, "Knightros feed off of emotions and turn them into raw power! Flare's passion, Takeru's love, Zephyr's joy, our hope, plus the others' armors back home. If we can just get something to fully amplify all of our positivity and and turn it into raw elemental force, we may be able to produce more than enough energy to not just defeat Gufuu here, but also possibly seal him away or greatly weaken him again back home!" Selena said. "Told you the magic of friendship wasn't just feel-good garbage!" Yvonne toledo Bille smugly. "Yeah, yeah, whatever." Bille said deep in thought before getting an idea. "Maybe if I build an energy amplifier or two that can partially replicate your guys' Dragoon armors! That way, we could possibly not just amplify your armors' elemental powers, but also have everyone else join in the fun and hopefully end Gufuu's reign of terror!" She said, her excitement building. @Rodimus13 "Build-a, think you can your friends could start scanning Selena, Takeru, Rainy, male Flare, and Shade's armors so we can figure out what makes them tick? I'll start working on some other weapons to possibly also give us the edge!" She said before speeding off to a pile of parts. She suddenly stopped in her tracks and turned back to the robots, "If that's okay with you guys..." She said awkwardly, remembering what QUERY said in the factory and her forcing Build-a and her friends to work for her earlier today.
@Chita On the bench, Flare produced two bottles of a strange purple liquid from his clothes and handed one to Other Flare, "Here, have some potion. It's hybrid magic and health elixir. It's not much, but it should be enough to suffice until we get back home. Or at least to another functioning cafe..." Flare said, remembering that he never got the black coffee he wanted before the coffee shop vanished. He undid the cork and took a sip, cringing at its intense sweet and sour flavor. "Ugh, why do they have to make these things so sweet anyways?" He asked himself as he felt a slight surge of energy after his sip, his injuries and fatigue sustained from the day's events starting to fade. "So, where do you want to start?" He asked Other Flare, hoping to have a conversation about their amnesia and encounter with Gufuu just an hour or so ago.
Back outside, Gufuu smiled cruelly as he snapped his fingers. Instantly, the brewing storm unleashed it's full fury upon the desolate city with a force that would've made the hurricane earlier seem like just a light drizzle in comparison. Gufuu laughed uproariously as he basked in the glorious chaos his storm brought. "Looks like they won't be going anywhere any time soon!" He said to the robot corpse he was playing chess with as he looked at the mountain the heroes were hiding in.
Back in the base, the sound of deafening thunder shook the fortress as Gufuu's echoing laugh could be heard in the distance. "So, looks like we're all trapped here for the time being..." Takeru said with a slight hint of concern in his stoic voice as he took another drink from his tea. "On the bright side, at least this mountain base is large and well stocked enough to hold out, right?" Yvonne said, remembering the hurricane plus being blown around by Billie from earlier today and glad he was now deep underground in a dry shelter with his friends instead of outside in the unnatural storm. Still, the sound of the lashing rains, howling winds, roaring thunder, and Gufuu's laughter was more than a bit unnerving for the entire group. "Hey, got anymore of that tea?" Yvonne asked Takeru, who was casually drinking his second can of green tea, unresponsive to Yvonne's inquiry.
