Japan's Newest Superhero
"Get that camera focused on that guy!" A television reporter screamed to
his cameraman as the news crew arrived at the scene of the chaos that was
occurring in the park. A couple of other camera crews had already gotten to
the scene and were busy filming the battle between Japan's newest costumed
adventurer and the forces of the Negaverse. A large crowd had also formed
to witness event. What had begun as a quiet afternoon had erupted into a
spectacular fight with five hideous monsters and a certain hero with
pointed ears. The appearance of the famous Sailor Senshi was a big story in
itself, but when it appeared that they were about to be destroyed, this
newcomer had come from out of nowhere and saved the Senshi and their ally
from certain destruction. Now, with the seven girls and Tuxedo Kamen too
injured to help, the former Hero of Time, now calling himself the Hyrule
Knight was taking on five gigantic youma and their masters head-on.
"Hyrule Knight! Watch out!" Navi cried out as one of the Headmasters crept
up from behind and let loose a full barrage of fire, icy mists, acid,
lightning and sonic blasts.
Ranma nimbly dodged the volley and then leapt up at another Headmaster.
With a swing of the Biggoron's Sword, he lopped off two of its heads. The
beast howled in pain as it swung one of its claws at Ranma. The martial
arts Hylian evaded the blow and then stabbed the three-foot blade into its
forearm, causing more pain. At the same time, one of the other Headmasters
came charging in on one side.
"Oh no you don't!" Navi cried out as she sped out and stopped in its path.
She then concentrated her energies and released a large ball of bright
light. The monster screamed as it was blinded by the sudden burst of
luminescence. It stopped in its tracks and shut its five pairs of eyes.
Ranma decided to take advantage of this and put away his sword for a
moment. He called forth his fairy bow and notched an arrow. The arrow began
to glow with a bright blue light that shot off small sparks from its tip.
The youma that he had been battling charged at him and that was when he let
his projectile fly.
Sailor Mercury watched with fascination as the projectile streaked toward
the beast. It looked like the opposite to Sailor Mars' Flame Sniper Attack.
The Ice Arrow flew straight and true, impacting hard on the Headmaster's
chest. Normally, its freezing magic was only good enough against smaller
targets, not opponents that were forty feet tall. However, with the
TriForce of Courage augmenting it, the arrow had more than enough power to
do the job. The youma glowed with a blue light and suddenly found its body
encased in ice. The unexpected drop in temperature took it by surprise and
when it remembered that it had a head that could breathe fire, it was too
late. The red-colored jaws were frozen shut. Worse yet was the fact that it
was still going forward, unable to stop.
The transformed Ranma noted this and leapt over his frozen foe. When he
landed, he turned around and called forth the Longshot. He pressed the
trigger and the weapon shot out its harpoon and chain. The chain shot past
the ice-encased Headmaster and its pointed tip pierced into the chest of
the one that Navi had blinded.
The beast screamed out when it felt something sharp pierce its torso. Its
blindly grabbed onto the chain, hoping to pull it out, but then Ranma gave
it another surprise. As soon as the metal point hit the Headmaster, Ranma's
normal boots were exchanged for the Iron Boots. Because of their greater
density, the metal-shod footwear was far heavier on Earth than on Hyrule,
and served to keep him on the ground. With the Golden Gauntlets augmenting
his strength, plus the reeling mechanism of the Longshot, the Hyrule Knight
yanked hard on the chain. The Headmaster went flying forward and ended up
crashing into its frozen companion. The other Headmaster's body had been
made brittle from the mystic ice and the impact caused it to shatter into a
pile of ice cubes and bloody body parts.
"Wow! Nice move!" Sailor Venus commented as she, the other Senshi and
Tuxedo Kamen watched from the sidelines. The earlier battle had taken away
much of their energies and they were too injured to be of any help to their
savior. Sailor Neptune and Uranus were just barely conscious after Saffron
had sapped them of their strength. ChibiMoon was out from Jedite's
backhand. All they could do was watch as the Hyrule Knight began whittling
down the creations of the Negaverse.
Returning the Longshot and the Iron Boots to their places in subspace,
Ranma charged at the still blind Headmaster and took out his sword again.
It was then that he noticed that the two heads that he had chopped off
earlier were regenerating into smaller, seven-foot tall versions of the
larger youma. He also saw that the shattered fragments of the one he froze
were also becoming animated as well.
"Hyrule Knight!" Navi cried out as she flew to where Ranma was being
surrounded. "Don't cut those monsters up! The pieces will just grow more of
"Then I'm just going to have to make sure that there isn't anything left
for them to grow back!" The former Kokiri couched down and began focusing
his energies into the huge blade. The monstrous beings began converging on
him from all sides, hoping to overwhelm him by sheer numbers. The twenty or
so monsters were almost on top of him when Ranma's blade started to glow
with a bright orange-red color.
The Hyrule Knight spun his sword in a wide circle, releasing a huge wave of
energy that surrounded him. The mini-Headmasters were caught in the blast
and were reduced to piles of blackened ash. Ranma then turned his attention
toward the remaining youma.
"That was cool!" Sailor Jupiter exclaimed. "Hey! That guy looks just like
my old sempai!"
The rest of the Scouts moaned as Sailor Mars replied to her comrade's
observation. "Now you've got to be kidding! There's no way HE could look
like your old boyfriend!"
"Because he's got pointed ears!"
"So? What does that have to do with it?"
Sailor Mars would have facefaulted if she weren't so injured.
Ranma displayed incredible agility as he dodged the creatures and their
attacks. The remaining three Headmasters threw everything at him, but they
couldn't lock onto him. The three generals were also displeased that this
newcomer was making them look like fools.
"All of you! Get him!" Jedite screamed.
Two of the Headmasters charged in on both sides, trying to catch the Hyrule
Knight between them. At the same time, Malachite and Zoycite were letting
loose with barrage of dark energies at him. Ranma was forced to put up his
Hylian Shield to block the bolts as the monsters closed in on him.
"Look out Hyrule Knight!" Navi cried, as the multi-headed horrors were
about to converge on him.
Ranma waited until they were almost on top of him then slammed a palm to
A huge hemisphere of mystic fire magic erupted from the ground and caught
the two Headmasters in the blast. The youma screamed in agony as they were
charred to cinders by the massive amounts of heat. The energies that were
released by the two Negaverse generals only served to augment the already
enhanced fire spell. When the fireball died down, the Hyrule Knight stood
at the center of a sixty-foot crater of scorched earth. All three servants
of Beryl sweated hard as they saw that Ranma had nary a scratch on him. The
last Headmaster was also cowed as it realized that its comrades were
nothing more than unrecognizable piles of ash.
In fact, it was so paralyzed with fear, that it made no move as Ranma leapt
up high to finish it off. As he reached the apex of his jump, he called
forth the Megaton Hammer. Using the Biggoron's Sword to cut it to pieces
was not a good idea so Ranma opted for the mighty weapon of the Gorons. The
Headmaster's eyes, all ten of them, widened as it saw the Hero of Hyrule
descend down toward it like an avenging angel.
"MEGATON HAMMER STRIKE!"
Now it was rumored that the Megaton Hammer was powerful enough to almost
move a mountain with a single blow. It was certainly strong enough to kill
the dragon Volvagia. However, when the TriForce of Courage augments that
selfsame weapon the results are quite devastating.
The head of the hammer struck the middle head and the monster was driven
deep into the ground like a tent stake. Uranus had to whistle at the attack
which made her World Shaking look like a minor tremor. The sound of its
impact was heard throughout Tokyo and the entire island shook as if it was
subjected to a small earthquake. The Headmaster was more than a little
dazed at the impact. Ranma took this opportunity as he leapt away and took
out his fairy bow again. He quickly notched five arrows and began infusing
them with a red energy. Taking careful aim at each of the Headmaster's
noggins, he let the arrows fly.
"FIRE ARROW BARRAGE!"
The Headmaster screamed as five searing projectiles struck each of its
heads and caused them to explode into pieces so small that they couldn't
possibly regenerate. With the TriForce of Courage enhancing their
destructive capabilities, the arrows went off like miniature Din's Fire
spells. The heat of the energies also cauterized the stumps, preventing
them from sprouting new heads. Sailor Mars was flabbergasted. She could
never fire off that many arrows in such rapid succession.
The now decapitated body was still unable to free itself from its position
in the ground as Ranma notched another arrow and began focusing his power
into it. Another Fire Arrow reduced the last youma into a smoking ruin. He
then drew his sword and faced off against three minions of Beryl who had
been hovering above his battle with the Headmasters. Navi floated to his
side as Ranma shouted out, "You're next!"
Jedite, Malachite and Zoycite were little more than shocked to see their
forces so easily defeated by one man and a fairy. They knew the penalty of
returning to Beryl in defeat and began releasing bolts of evil energies at
him, trying to blast him into oblivion. Ranma once again dodged with ease
and deflected some of the blasts with his shield.
["Ranma! They have a bit of an advantage in the air! It's time to use the
["But Navi! They only allow me to float in the air for a few steps! They
certainly can't let me fly!"]
["With the TriForce of Courage they can!"]
["With the new spells I've added and the TriForce of Courage fully
integrated with you, there's no reason why you can't!"]
Ranma smiled as he silently called forth the Hover Boots. He then took a
mighty leap toward one of his adversaries. Jedite tired to float out of the
way, but was very surprised when the Hyrule Knight hovered in the air and
began raining martial arts maneuvers on him. Punches and kicks were thrown
in rapid succession and Jedite had to raise his telekinetic shield block.
With his augmented strength, the impacts of Ranma's blows echoed like
thunder. Cracks in his shield began to show as Ranma continued his assault.
"Incredible!" Sailor Mercury commented as she activated her visor. However,
the high-tech scanning device was unable to determine anything about their
unknown rescuer. The TriForce of Courage was radiating so much power, on so
many levels, that all she got was static. One thing for certain, whoever
this person was, he was in possession of some serious power. It may well be
that his power might be even more potent than the Silver Imperium Crystal.
"What I'd like to know is where I can get a pair of those boots!" Sailor
Before Ranma could break though Jedite's shield, Navi warned him to get out
of the way. Ranma shot upward, just barely evading Zoycite and Malachite's
double assault as they sent more power blasts at him. Jedite however, was
not as fortunate. He took the full brunt of the intended ambush, which
shattered his weakened barrier and caused him to scream out. His body was
subjected to massive amounts of pain as his comrades' energies flayed
through him. The two other generals gasped in shock as they saw they had
missed their target. They then heard a shout from above them and looked up.
"LIGHT ARROW BARRAGE!"
Three streaks of golden light came streaking down toward them. The three
generals were temporarily blinded by the intense luminescence of the arrows
and were unable to move for a split-second. That was all the time the
projectiles needed at they struck their targets. Zoycite screamed as an
arrow struck her in the right shoulder. Malachite's chest was pierced and
Jedite, who already in pain from the first attack, was hit in the gut. The
three arrows released their payloads of magical power as each began
draining the dark, evil power within their targets. The three evil servants
of the Queen of the Negaverse writhed in the air for a moment before
plummeting to the ground. They managed to land on their feet but found
themselves paralyzed from the power contained within the arrows.
Ranma floated back down to land between his three opponents and the Sailor
Scouts. Navi came to his side. ["Ranma! You're getting low on your own
personal stores of magic! Even though the TriForce of Courage is boosting
everything, you do need time to recharge."]
Ranma nodded. He had begun to feel his own personal reserves of magic being
depleted as the battle raged on. Even though he could just simply take out
his bottle of Magic Replenishing Potion, he didn't want anyone to know
about it. That potion was to be used as a last resort. The arrows he fired
would not hold the three villains forever and they still possessed a lot of
power. He needed to finish them off fast.
It was then that Navi began fluttering around Sailor Moon and pointed at
her tiara. ["Ranma! I sense something here that you can use to take those
three out all at once!"]
["What do you mean Navi?"] Ranma was confused, then smiled as Navi
telepathically showed him what she had discovered. He then bent down and
plucked the tiara off Sailor Moon's head. "Excuse me. Mind if I borrow
"Huh? But it doesn't work anymore!" Sailor Moon had stopped using her tiara
attack when it had failed her several times. The power contained within the
headpiece was low and didn't have the force necessary to deal with the
ever-stronger opponents the Scouts faced each time. As of now, it only had
a residual amount of power left.
Ranma simply smiled as he silently called forth an item that had been one
of his main weapons as a child. With Navi donating some of her energies and
using the TriForce of Courage, Ranma merged the two items together. The
tiara glowed with renewed power. The Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask watched
in awe as Navi guiding him through the correct motions. The Hyrule Knight
felt pretty silly doing a pirouette but as Navi had said, it was genre. The
three Negaverse generals widened in disbelief as they recognized what he
was doing. However, the Light Arrow spell still kept them paralyzed from
doing anything about it.
The camera crews that were filming the battle were also dropping their
jaws. They had seen this maneuver done before and they just couldn't
believe that someone else was attempting it.
"No way!" Sailor Moon cried out as she saw her tiara glow and change shape.
"He doesn't really expect that to work!" Venus said.
"He's really going to do it!" Mars shouted as the Hyrule Knight finished
the motions and drew back his hand.
Ranma threw the transformed tiara and shouted out the new Sailor Senshi
"MOON... TIARA... BOOMERANG!"
"Boomerang?!" The Senshi and Tuxedo Mask exclaimed.
Sure enough, the tiara took the shape of Ranma's old boomerang. Considered
a toy by the people of Hyrule, the magic contained within it, plus the
energies added to it by Navi and the TriForce of Courage, had not only
reactivated the tiara's power, but also boosted it past its previous
maximum capabilities. The generals could feel the power radiating from the
new weapon. It was a combination of the Moon Kingdom's energies (which they
were very familiar with) and the new power source that they had been
In the timestream, Sailor Pluto was more than surprised to see Sailor
Moon's old tiara attack had been reactivated and enhanced. She watched with
great interest as the Hyrule Knight threw the weapon at Beryl's minions.
The tiara-turned-boomerang smacked into Jedite first then rebounded to hit
Malachite and Zoycite. Each impact caused huge explosions as the three were
enveloped in blinding flashes of light. The power of the boomerang, plus
the waning energies of the Light Arrow spell, pushed their abilities to
their limits. The balls of light that were formed lit up the night sky for
several seconds before finally dying out. Ranma caught the returning
boomerang, which returned to being a tiara again. He stood and waited with
When the power dispersed itself, The Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen
couldn't believe their eyes. Three of their enemies had been totally
defeated by one person. Sailor Moon's weakest attack had taken them all
out. The three villains were sprawled out on the ground. Their gray
uniforms were tattered and dirtied with numerous tears in them. Their
bodies were covered in many bruises. Ranma had his sword held at the ready
as he slowly approached them. When he was about ten feet away from them
took out the Lens of Truth and shone its eerie light on them. Satisfied
with what he saw, he put the mystic detection device away.
"Y... You... haven't beaten... us yet!" Malachite gasped as he tried to get
up. He failed and fell flat on his face.
"Says you." Ranma replied. "According to what the Lens of Truth is telling
me, you three don't have enough power to light a match! Now, you are going
to tell me what's going on and who sent you."
Malachite groaned as he realized that he and his comrades didn't have the
strength to even teleport back to the Negaverse. It was then that a loud,
booming voice rang out from above.
Ranma looked up and saw a gigantic face being formed from the dark clouds
above them. His mouth pulled back in a snarl as he recognized whom it was.
A bolt of lightning came down from the heavens and struck the defeated
trio, causing them to disappear.
"What did you do to them?" Ranma cried out as he took a defensive stance.
The Sailor Scouts also gasped.
"No need to be concerned about those three losers." Saffron replied with
contempt. "I sent them back to Queen Beryl to punish for their failure. No
little one, it is your own safety that you should be concerned about."
"What do you mean?"
"I was very impressed with what you have accomplished so far, but you have
yet to show me your true power Hyrule Knight. Perhaps if I were to up the
stakes a bit more?"
Ranma and Navi were in a state of pure shock when they saw the image raise
up a hand and displayed what was on the back of it.
["Navi, it can't be! That can't be the TriForce of Power!"]
["Oh yes it is! Look at your own hand!"]
Ranma looked down at the back of his right hand and saw the symbol of the
TriForce of Courage begin to resonate with energies being released by the
TriForce of Power. Before he could contemplate further, Saffron released a
sizzling bolt of magic at him.
Ranma was able to call forth the Mirror Shield and bring it up to block in
time. The massive beam began rebounding off the polished surface and was
redirected skyward and to the sides. However, it was like trying to stop a
raging torrent of water. Ranma was thrown back several hundred yards and
landed in the middle of the now devastated park. The Sailor Scouts and
their ally were just able to scramble out of the way of the reflected
Sailor Pluto gasped as the double image of the TriForce of Power and
Courage appeared before her again. The incredibly powerful interference
prevented her from seeing into the timestream. She was left wondering what
was going on and decided that now was the time for her to get involved. She
tried to transport herself to the time where the interference started but
found that she was being prevented somehow. She then saw the image of
Saffron as he held up the hand that displayed the Triforce of Power.
On Phoenix Mountain, Saffron chuckled as he watched through the viewing
portal at the scene of Sailor Pluto's failed attempts to interfere. <Oh no.
When I said no interference. I meant it. >
It was at this time that Ranma was presented with his final challenge. The
area around him was suddenly encircled with walls of mystic fire, enclosing
an area of more than two hundred meters in diameter. The fires then curved
over into a dome, which would prevent him from escaping via Hover Boots. He
could not count on the Sailor Senshi or Tuxedo Kamen for assistance as they
were cut off from him. He then noticed the remains of the Headmasters glow
with dark energies. The pieces lifted off the ground and began merging
together into one huge, shapeless mass that hovered above him. Ranma and
Navi had a sinking feeling. This premonition of doom was verified when the
blob suddenly exploded and a gigantic form landed on the ground before
The new Headmaster was more than eighty feet tall and had the heads of the
four previous monsters combined. All twenty of them! It had claws that were
large enough to crush a car like an empty soda can and it let out a roar
that shook the neighborhood like a thunderstorm. Just as Ranma brought up
his sword to prepare for battle, the monster lashed out with a massive,
clawed hand and knocked the Biggoron's Sword from his grasp. The huge blade
went flying and a small opening in the firewalls appeared. The sword flew
through the opening and landed outside the mystic ring of fire. The opening
them sealed itself up again. The Hyrule Knight suddenly had a sickening
feeling of d�j� vu.
["Ranma! Look out!"]
Navi's warning came in the nick of time as all twenty heads let loose with
their attacks. Ranma had nearly bought it as a huge barrage of fire, icy
mists, acid, lightning and sonic wails narrowly missed him as he ducked
behind a tree. Realizing that he needed the power, he called forth the
bottle of Magic Replenishing Potion and drank it down. Fortunately, the
tree kept anyone from seeing him take out the bottle and drink from it.
["Yuck! I've always hated that taste!"]
His body was instantly recharged with power and Ranma could feel his
confidence rising again. He leapt out from behind the tree and called forth
his bow. Notching an arrow and infusing the Light Arrow spell, he launched
it at one to the heads that breathed fire. The arrow exploded, paralyzing
the head momentarily. The Hero of Hyrule then leapt up, took out the
Megaton Hammer and struck it.
The impact was staggering and the head was promptly made unconscious. As
the Hyrule Knight landed on the ground, Navi floated to him.
"Hyrule Knight! This monster is a lot more powerful than the last ones! It
would take too long to take out all those heads one at a time! We have to
stop it now!"
"What can we do?" Ranma shouted as he dodged another withering barrage of
mixed energies. "Does this thing had any weak points?"
Outside the dome, the Sailor Senshi, Tuxedo Kamen, the camera crews and
those who were watching at home, could do nothing but observe the battle
within the fiery hemisphere. The new hero's career as a defender of good
seemed destined to be short-lived.
Sailor Jupiter was not one to give up. Forcing herself to her feet, she
managed to move over to where Ranma's sword had landed.
"Come on you guys! We've got to help him!" The brown-haired girl grasped
the hilt of the huge weapon and tried to lift it. Unfortunately, the
Biggoron's Sword was far heavier than she imagined. "Off! Man, this thing's
Mars and Venus crawled over to where Jupiter was and also managed to
stagger to their feet. Unfortunately, even with the three of them, they
only managed to get the sword a few feet off the ground before it fell back
down to the soil.
<Just WHAT is that sword made of?!> Sailor Mercury engaged her visor again
and tried to analyze it. The readings she got indicated that the weapon was
composed of alloys that she couldn't identify. The tensile strength was far
above the strongest metals on Earth. Even the best titanium alloys were
nothing compared to the Biggoron's Sword. Furthermore, the sword was also
emitting powerful magical energies that enhanced its molecular structure
and made the blue-haired Senshi shake her head in disbelief.
Navi began extending her senses and then bobbed up and down. "Yes! I can
sense that all the heads are connected to one spot! In the center of its
chest! Shoot a few Light Arrows there! That's where all its dark energies
have been concentrated at!"
"But Navi!" Ranma ducked and rolled as another group of shots went by. He
noted that he was starting to run out of space to dodge. The huge
Headmaster wasn't letting up for anything as it continually attacked him,
giving him only enough time to dodge. Every time he evaded, the ground
became more scorched and poisoned. He knew that it would only be a matter
of time before he would have no room to maneuver. Worse yet was that the
head he had knocked out had already regained consciousness. "Even if I did
manage to get a few shots off, the Light Arrows would only stop him for a
few seconds! He's just too big! I can't risk cutting pieces off him because
they'll just grow into more of them." Ranma thought that it was just as
well that he didn't have the Biggoron's Sword at the time. "Man! I really
wish I had the Master Sword!" Ranma thought back to the adventures he had
on Hyrule. The Master Sword had been the weapon, which allowed him to
defeat Ganondorf. Even the Biggoron's Sword was unable to pierce the evil
man's dark powers.
"Don't worry! The Biggoron's Sword will be enough for your strongest
"Trust me Hyrule Knight!"
Ranma paused for the briefest of moments before nodding and taking out his
bow. Grabbing a few arrows he began infusing them with the Light Arrow
spell. He then changed his tactics and rushed toward the monster instead of
keeping away from it. Just as the beast was about to let loose another wave
of destruction, Ranma leapt high and notched the first of his enchanted
arrows. It was then that the Headmaster let loose its attack.
The Hyrule Knight mentally commanded his Hover Boots to send him even
further up and he almost crashed into the fiery ceiling of the dome. He
barely managed to clear the blasts of energy and projectile attacks as he
launched the first of his arrows. He then loosed fourteen more arrows in
"ARROWS OF LIGHT! RAPID FIRE!"
The monster screamed out in pain as the arrows hit home, one after another.
Fifteen bursts of golden light registered and the multi-headed horror was
suddenly stiff as a statue. Ranma wasted no time as he landed near where
his sword had been knocked away, which was ironically where the Sailor
Senshi were. Ranma motioned for them to get back as he took out his
remaining arrows one by one and infused them with the Light Arrow energies.
He began shooting them at the wall of mystic fire. There was another series
of light bursts as a small hole was made. The walls of the barrier began to
shudder as the energies released by the arrows took their toll. Finally,
the entire dome collapsed, unable to stand up against the energies being
forced into it. As soon as he got through, he ran toward his sword and
swept it up.
"Get back!" Ranma shouted as he faced off against his monstrous foe. The
Sailor Senshi and their ally knew that this was it, but they weren't going
to just stand there and do nothing. They took up positions behind him and
began focusing whatever energies they had left. They were heroes and if
they were going to die, they would go out fighting.
Ranma however, had different ideas and dying wasn't on the agenda. Looking
to Navi, he asked, "Now what?"
"Focus the TriForce of Courage into the sword and let him have it!"
Ranma raised his sword and had it pointing skyward above his head. He then
summoned forth all his strength and began to glow with a bright white
light. The TriForce of Courage appeared above him and grew to a huge size.
It then superimposed itself onto the blade of the Biggoron's Sword;
vanishing into the metal and making it glow with unimaginable power. The
blade let off a brilliant beam of light that went up and parted the dark
clouds in the sky.
"That's way cool!" Sailor Jupiter exclaimed.
"Awesome!" Venus agreed.
"I think we'd better take his advice and get back!" Mars said as she sensed
that something big was about to happen.
As the Senshi managed to pick themselves up and backed away, Ranma lowered
the sword and charged at his foe. The Headmaster was just shaking off the
effects of the Light Arrows when it spied its adversary charging at it. It
prepared to let loose a final barrage and send the little gnat into
oblivion when it noticed the sword it held. Its eyes widened as it sensed
the immense power within the blade. Before it could let loose its attack,
the Hyrule Knight leapt up and delivered the final blow.
"TRIFORCE SWORD OF COURAGE!"
The blade came down in a shining arc and let loose a mind-boggling amount
of energy that lit up the night sky. The monster roared as searing pain
flared up at the point of impact. The blade cut through its body as if it
were made of cotton candy and more energy was delivered as it sliced down.
Ranma went down the length of the Headmaster's torso, then down its lower
body. When the Hylian came down to the ground, the monster was cut cleanly
in half! The two sections of the Headmaster tried to regenerate themselves
but the damage caused by the attack was too much for them to handle. The
halves began to tremble and quiver as the power contained within them
threatened to explode.
The television crews knew that this was the time to get out of the danger
area and began backing off. The Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask also rushed
to get out of the blast zone. One person however, was too exhausted to
move. That person was the Hyrule Knight.
Ranma was just too tired after the lengthy battle and calling forth the
TriForce of Courage. He knew that he wouldn't be able to get out of the way
in time. Just as the youma was about to blow, he called out his last
reserves to protect himself and Navi.
A blue crystal barrier appeared around the Hero of Hyrule and his fairy
partner just as the youma exploded. The blast destroyed nearly half the
park, but fortunately, there were no innocent bystanders since the youma
had started its attack. The people who had been observing the battle
shielded their eyes to avoid being blinded by the explosion. For a long
minute, the maelstrom raged on. Finally, it began to die down and
The Sailor Senshi were the first to approach the crater that marked where
the youma had perished. There was nothing but complete silence as small
columns of smoke rose from near the center of the deep depression. They
stopped suddenly as they saw something moving. They quickly assumed
fighting stances and waited.
From out of the huge cloud of dust that was kicked up from an errant gust
of wind, a figure walked out and stood before them. His clothes were a bit
dusty, but none worse for wear. The fairy that floated over his right
shoulder had lost some of its usual luminescence but was still alive. The
large sword and shield strapped to his back glinted in the moonlight.
Nothing was said for a long time until the figure smiled, held up an object
and tossed it to Sailor Moon. The leader of the Sailor Scouts was still a
little dumbfounded about what had happened.
"Thanks for letting me use your tiara. Don't worry about the Headmaster.
He's... how do you call it?" Navi whispered into his ear. "He's moon dust!"
There was a deafening roar and a standing ovation as the crowds of people
that had gathered to see the battle cheered. Ranma let off a sigh of relief
that the fight was finally over. He noted that the Scouts were still
injured and decided to help. Turning to Navi he asked. "Hey Navi. Do you
think you could heal their injuries."
"I'm afraid not Hyrule Knight. The battle and that final explosion took a
lot out of me. I'm really low on power right now."
"No problem." The magical warrior called forth his bottle of Lon Lon Milk
and held it up in front of Navi. "Will this do?"
"That'll be fine." Navi then began circling the bottle and Ranma watched as
the liquid inside was magically drained. The level lowered down to about
halfway before the fairy then darted toward the Sailor Senshi and began
circling each of them and Tuxedo Kamen. The girls gasped in surprise as
their injuries began healing themselves up. Sailor Jupiter's bruised ribs
were eased of their soreness. Venus could no longer feel the effects of her
sprained ankle. The burns on Mars and Mercury disappeared and Sailor Moon's
cuts and bruises faded away. Tuxedo Kamen was also restored to full health
as well as Neptune, Uranus and ChibiMoon, who was just coming back to
Ranma nodded as Navi completed her transfer of the Lon Lon Milk to their
bodies and put the bottle away. He then motioned to Navi that it was time
to go. The fairy nodded and began to follow him as he began to walk away
from the scene. By now the local authorities would be on their way.
"Hold it right there buster!" Sailor Mars called out as she started after
him. Sailor Venus and Sailor Jupiter joined her. They wanted some answers.
Ranma stopped and turned to face the dark-haired girl. He also looked over
the other two. <Hey! They're kind of cute!> "Yes?"
"Who are you?" Venus asked.
"That's what I'd like to know."
Every turned around at the voice and saw Sailor Pluto appear before them
with her garnet rod. She had been able to teleport due to the destruction
of the Headmaster and Saffron relinquishing his barrier.
"And you are?" Ranma asked.
"I am Sailor Pluto, Guardian of Time. I think you owe us an explanation."
The Hyrule Knight considered for a moment, then decided against it. He was
still very new to all this and it would be better if he got more
information. Right now, he was exhausted. He shrugged as he smiled and
replied to the attractive Senshi. "Sorry, but I'm not in the mood to answer
any questions right now. Maybe later. I have a feeling that we'll meet
again Sailor Senshi." He then said in a quiet voice, "Farore's Wind!"
The former Hero of Time disappeared in a flash of green-colored energy.
The Sailor Senshi began looking frantically around for their mysterious
savior but they couldn't find him. Even Sailor Mercury's computer and
Sailor Pluto couldn't find him as the TriForce of Courage sent out too much
"Where'd he go?" Sailor Moon asked as she still clutched her returned
"I don't know, but one thing's for sure..." Sailor Jupiter said.
"What's that?" The other Scouts asked.
"He's soooo cute! He definitely reminds me of my old Sempai!"
Now that they weren't injured, the Inner Senshi did a group facefault.
Although, deep in their minds, they had to agree that the Hyrule Knight was
Sailor Pluto was more than miffed at being brushed off, but now she knew
for sure. The power that the Hyrule Knight possessed was indeed the
TriForce, or at least a portion of it. However, she had also sensed another
portion of the TriForce with very evil intentions, and that made her
shudder. Thinking back to the old legends, she wondered if this newcomer
could really be trusted. Sure he had saved the Senshi from certain
destruction, but that didn't mean that he would remain on their side.
During her long lifetime, she had seen countless others who were on the
side of good, fall under evil's influence. That had happened during the
fall of the Moon Kingdom and she shuddered at the thought of the power of
the TriForce being used for destruction. Then she remembered the image of
Saffron as he wielded the TriForce of Power. If a god could be corrupted by
such power, then what was to stop the Hyrule Knight from doing the same?
Just him being here had already caused far too much chaos and now she
wasn't sure of the future anymore.
It was at that time that she made a fateful decision. The TriForce was just
too powerful and dangerous to remain and in order to save the future of
Crystal Tokyo, it would have to be destroyed� along with the Hyrule Knight.
On Phoenix Mountain, Saffron chuckled as he held up the hand that had the
TriForce of Power on it. He had finally found what he was looking for.
To be continued...
Well, that takes care of the rewrite for this chapter. It's relatively
minor, but It does add some more flavor to the story. I've decided to make
this story happen around the time of the fourth season or so. Sailor Saturn
has awakened but has yet to discover her full potential as a Senshi.
