"We'd better be careful, they may be planning to send even more bots out in waves to wear us down." While Abby was suspicious of the Naraclan sending out a small group of 'bots she didn't suspect there to be a hidden monster, and came up with another theory as to what their plan could be. "Either way we have to deal with them."
Cory and the others hopped through a teleportation scroll and were on the scene. Cory shrugged his shoulders and ran right in shoulder checking a bot away from a civilian woman. He gave a nod as she thanked him and felt a hand on his shoulder yanking at him. He turned around and gave a swift kick to the Nara bot trying to gain the upper hand.
He sent it to the ground as he somersaulted over an outdoor dining table landing perfectly on his feet before another front kick to the bot in front of him. "Heh, just some bots Zonbu must be scarce on henchmen today! Not even Baku is here!"
Shotaro shoulder checked the nearest Nara bot knocking it down and punching its head off before blasting another with a ray of light from his hands "I don't know something about this seems off this is almost too easy" he said warily looking around for any signs of a trap
Abby agreed with Shotaro. "Like I said before I wouldn't be surprised if they sent in another group when we're through with with this one." She barely dodged the blade of one of the 'bots as she said that and followed it up by sweeping its legs out from underneath before it could regain balance.
Cory judo flipped another Bot over as he apun around with an elbow strike to another one. "Hey I'll gladly take more bots over another Nara Clan freak." He admitted as he dodged another strike from a Bot.
Having downed one 'bot Abby decided she couldn't always just leg sweep them and tried to think of another way to deal with her next opponent. Having learned her lesson though she didn't stop paying attention and managed to block a Narabot's sword with her StrikerBlade and took it down after slashing its chest.
Abby decided that saving her energy would be smart if she was right about the multiple waves attack. She reformed her Striker Blade into the blaster and after creating some more distance between herself and the Narabots started firing at the robots.
Cory did think it was a bit weird that no other opposing forces were going against them at the moment. Another Portal opened up as a new wave of bots appeared. Cory shook his head. "Alright... this ends now..."
"It's Morphin' Time!" The Shinobi Striker lights up as a robotic voice shouts out from the morpher "Ninja Art: Transform" Cory throws his Shinobi Star as a Blue portal opens. Cory leaps through coming out of the other side in a blue suit. A helmet forms around his/her head as the Shuriken Visor spins and locks in place.
"Unforgiving Wave, Blue Shinobi Ranger!"
Cory attached a scroll to his Striker Blade as his sword transformed into his Tide Changer Trident. Pushing a button on his belt a scroll popped out as he slashed it releasing his attack. "Ninja Art: Swallowing Hippo!" A wave of water emerged from the scroll taking the form of a giant hippopotamus that opened its mouth and swallowed the Narabots causing them to short circuit and explode inside of the water. The Field was clear of bots as The Blue Ranger turned to face his team resting the Trident on his shoulder.
"Done with that... no need to thank-" The Blue Ranger was cut off as Spark flew from his chest and he was sent flying hitting the ground hard and rolled. He laid there in pain and shock as it felt like he had been struck by a blade but saw no one near him.
Abby was impressed with how easily Corey took care of the Narabots and wished she had that much power. Not wanting to start doubting herself again she instead decided to either get a move as strong as that or if that was impossible at least come up with something impressive of her own. "Wow, good jo..."
Before she could finish her sentence something or someone attacked him. Her first instinct was to run over and see if he was okay but that would probably make her an easy target as well. So instead Abby placed her back against the wall of a building, hoping that the defense against backattacks outweighed the fact that she had nowhere to run too and looked for any clues of the attacker's whereabouts. "Corey, do you have any idea of what hit you?"
Cory stood up looking around. "I have no idea... it felt like a blade... careful Sho..." He said to the Red Ranger as he backed up holding his Trident. Then it happened again. Cory was struck as sparks flew and his hit the ground hard. Then the Red Ranger suffered the same fate as he was struck as well.
Both Rangers laid on the ground as a strange Monster suddenly began to materialize almost as if out of thin air. The beast chuckled. "Well... you must be the new Rangers I've been hearing about.... heheheh."
So it wasn't a sniper, that complicated things but at least Shotaro was willing to cover Cory and the monster made the mistake of revealing itself. Not wanting to waste time Abby aimed her Blaster at him and fired, hoping to do at least some damage before he disappeared again.
Shotaro hit the ground hard as he was struck by the monster he saw Abby open fire with her Stryker blade blaster and not being one to miss an opportunity Shotaro quickly transformed his Stryker blade into his Dragon Chakrams and threw them at the monster as he got to his feet hoping to aid his teammate In at least hurting this new opponent
Lord Melion rolled sideways avoiding the blasts and popped to his feet he saw the chakrams and raised his long sword parrying the attack and gave a twirl throwing them back at the Red Ranger. He quickly vanished agai. As Cory looked around frantically for the beast. He felt a sharp jab to his gut as Melion appeared once again and slammed a knee into his helmet sending the Blue Ranger into the air as he then grabbed his foot and threw him into a wall.
"Sloppy... no finesse... and you."
He motioned to The White Ranger in the distance. "Afraid to fight me up Close? Perhaps I should come to you." He cackled as he vanished once more.
