Up in the peaks of Shiver Mountains, Boobart, Yoshure, and Zorfen appear in an icy cave. Surveying his surroundings, Zorfen remarks, “You’re even less intelligent than I gave you credit for. This environment will only amplify my abilities.”
“Yeah, well…I was rushing,” Boobart retorts lamely.
“Hmph, yes, it’s those kinds of reckless actions that I simply abhor about this world,” Zorfen states, “Once we destroy this planet, I will create a new world; one with order where no one will act without perfectly logical reasoning.”
“But, you can’t do that,” Yoshure tells him.
“He’s right,” Boobart agrees, “There are feelings that cause people to sometimes do things that even they don’t quite understand.”
“Hmph, this too will be remedied,” Zorfen replies, “Such words like courage, desperation, or even your most famous word, love, will mean nothing. They will be obsolete.”
“You can’t do that! Without emotion, people would be nothing but robots!” Boobart tells him.
“Precisely,” Zorfen responds, “Robots are logical and only rely on data, facts, and commands when deciding what to do. They don’t rely on such illogical things like “feelings”.”
“But-“ Yoshure begins before Zorfen interrupts, “Enough of your meaningless thoughts and feelings! I’ll swiftly defeat you so that we may continue on with our plan.”
Boobart and Yoshure quickly get ready for battle. Zorfen holds his hand out and blasts a freezing pulse from it at the two. Boobart’s eyes widen as he is frozen solid and falls to the ground.
“Hm,” Zorfen says, unimpressed, before noticing that Yoshure was unfrozen. “Hmm? Why aren’t you frozen?”
“Hah! I have ice powers too so I can’t be frozen!” Yoshure replies.
“Hmm, very well then,” Zorfen says before beginning to materializing icicles and fire them rapidly at Yoshure.
Yoshure yelps before beginning to run around, dodging the icicles. As he runs about, Yoshure counters by spitting icicles of his own at Zorfen, who easily parries them with his quick fire of icicles. Yoshure then skids to a halt and takes a deep breath before blasting a powerful stream of water at Zorfen, deflecting all of Zorfen’s icicles as it flies towards him. Zorfen jumps out of the way before materializing a large avalanche of snow that falls towards Yoshure.
Yoshure, acting quickly, blows water in a fountain form about him before mixing it with his icy breath, creating an icy force field, just as the heavy mountain of snow collapses on top of him. Zorfen watches silently for a moment, wondering what the Yoshi had planned. Suddenly, a high-pressure stream of water blasts out of the pile of snow at Zorfen. Zorfen jumps out of the way of it just in time. Yoshure digs his way out of the mound through the hole the water created in it and shakes the snow off of himself before frowning at Zorfen and taking a fighting stance.
“Hmph, I’ll admit, you’re better than I expected, but this ends now,” Zorfen states. He then holds up one of his hands, an icy blue energy surrounding it after a moment. Zorfen then chops the air, sending a sharp blast of the energy at Yoshure.
Yoshure yelps, quickly jumping to the side to dodge the attack, which ends up cleanly slicing through the wall behind him. “Uh oh…” Yoshure says worriedly before beginning to run about the room, dodging attack after attack. After a bit though, Yoshure cries out in pain as an attack manages to graze his leg, damaging it greatly. Yoshure falls to the ground, clutching it in pain.
Zorfen says, raising his arm to fire the finishing blow, “Hmph, goodbye, stupid creature.”
Just then, a voice chants, “Lightning Strike!” A Thunder Cloud appears above Zorfen and strikes him with a lightning bolt.
Yelping in pain, Zorfen turns to the voice to see Boobart, who was pointing at Zorfen, having cast the spell. “You escaped?” Zorfen questions in disbelief.
“Hm, I managed to cast a fire spell to free myself,” Boobart responds before blasting a fire spell at Zorfen, who quickly jumps out of the way and attempts to freeze Boobart again. However, Boobart quickly teleports out of the way the moment his attack misses. Reappearing behind Zorfen, Boobart points at him and chants, “Lightning Strike!” casting the spell again.
Zorfen cringes in pain. He swiftly spins around to attack Boobart but is blasted against a wall by a powerful stream of water. Once the water stops, Zorfen collapses to his hands and knees, breathing heavily. Looking up at his attacker, he sees Yoshure catching his breath.
Zorfen growls, “You!” beginning to get up.
However, before he can, Boobart points at him and says, “Time to end this.” Zorfen pauses before his eyes widen, realizing too late that he is now completely soaked with water. “Lightning Strike!” Boobart chants, casting the same spell. Zorfen cries out in agony as the lightning bolt strikes him, the water greatly increasing the strength of the spell. He then falls to the ground, breathing heavily, smoke and steam wafting off him.
“How…?” he breathes.
“You’re forgetting one thing: it’s our emotions that make us strong; our determination to protect the ones we care about,” Boobart states, frowning, “We’ll never let you win!”
Growling, Zorfen says, “No...I will not lose to insects like you!” He then roars as the icy energy surrounds both of his hands and he begins sending attacks all about the cavern. Boobart gasps, hurriedly casting a barrier in front of himself and Yoshure to protect them. Eventually, the attacks cause the cave to become unstable, and it begins to collapse. Boobart and Yoshure gasp, looking up as a large chunk plunges down, threatening to crush them…
