Abby still had no idea what she was expected to do but decided to just follow the lead of the others. After all the fact that she was the only one who got actually injured during the fight probably meant she was the weakest. Of course that just meant she would have to be more sneaky and less direct during combat, but that didn't seem to mesh well with the fighting styles of Cory and Shotaro.
Takashi led the Rangers out to the Zen Garden as a breeze passed by, the trees swaying a bit as leaves fell down.
"The Key to achieving your Titan forms will be tricky... as you have your methods of relying on the Chakra and power granted by the stars... channeling the power if the Legendary Ikamashi warriors is all about balance... you must understand the aspects of your elements that you may not understand yet about your daily lives..."
Takashi turned to Cory. "Cory... your battle style is fierce... like an Unforgiving Wave... however you must learn to be calm but ever moving like the ocean. As that was Oceania. "
Cory frowned at that as he simply gave a nod. Calm yet ever moving? What kind of cryptic thinking was that?
"Abby... you show grace and fluidity on the battle field... and yet you remain unsure of a lot... a gust of wind never has doubt of where it's going... it just goes. Let go of your inhibitions and fly." He rested a hand on her shoulder as he finally turned to Shotaru.
"Shotaru... you were called upon to lead this team... in combat you are sure of yourself... but not when it comes to the team as a whole or your leadership capabilities... ignite the fire within your team and yourself. Burn your doubts and you will rise to the occasion."
Takashi stood before them as he took a black scroll from Isaiah. "Allow me to demonstrate... I can't hold this form for long..."
Takashi gripped the scroll as it began to glow. Takashi became surrounded by a bright light as his physical form began to disintegrate and reshape expanding as the scroll broke and transformed into pieces of metal armor that attached to the giant construct of light. Soon before the three Rangers stood a skyscraper sized mech warrior.
Cory stood with his mouth wide open, Takashi stood before them a giant and cladded in armor. Cory looked over to Abby and Shotaru then back at Takashi.
"Uh... wow... okay... that.. I was not expecting."
Takashi's form began to glow again and shrank to his normal appearance as he tossed Isaiah the scroll. He sighed heavily clearly drained as Isaiah rushed over and gave him support allowing him to lean on him.
"Rangers... this will be your greatest weapon against the Nara... I must rest now..." Takashi stated as Isaiah helped him into the next room. The tech wizard came back into the room and rubbed his hands together.
"Alright guys... let's get started first things first you gotta morph. It'll make the transformation easier once you're in Ranger form and the Chakra is already flowing. After that you'll activate the Zord Scrolls by voice activation, same deal as your weapons Place them on your Strike Blades and let's hope to see some magic!"
Cory looked to the others and shrugged.
"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 head as the Shuriken Visor spins and locks in place. "Unforgiving Wave, Blue Shinobi Ranger!"
Shotaro pondered Ikamashi's words "Burn my doubts and my power will rise huh?" Shotaro muttered to himself he was then awestruck as Ikamashi turned into his Titan form "You can say that again Cory" Shotaro said with a whistle clearly impressed he then watched as Cory transformed and gave a sarcastic golf clap when he was done "It's just us here man you don't have to announce yourself we know who you are now then...
it's morphing Time!" Shotaro yelled as his shinobi striker Morpher transformed from its bracelet form into its Morpher form
"Ninja Art: Transform!" the shinobi striker Morpher calls out as Shotaro threw his Shinobi Star and a red portal opens. Shotaro leapt through coming out of the other side in a red suit. A helmet forms around his head as the Shuriken Visor spins and locks in place.
"That's the stuff!" Shotaro said excitedly after he transformed feeling a rush of energy "Abby your up next" Shotaro said smiling behind his helmet

Abby had to admit the Titan form was impressive but if even Takashi couldn't hold it very long how could she... She realized she was doubting herself again and shook her head to clear her mind. instead she simply followed the lead of her two teammates and morphed. "Ninja Art: Transform "Rising Current, White Shinobi Ranger!"
After she was done transforming Abby wondered what her Titan form would look if she finally achieved it, not that it mattered too much she supposed. "This might be a dumb question but does a fear of heights affect this training in any way?" The Titans were huge after all and wind especially was related in many ways with high places so Abby had no idea if her phobia might somehow hold her back.
"The Ranger who represents the wind and sky is afraid of heights? How fitting." Cory said shaking his head then sighed crossing his arms.
"Well it definitely will make things a bit more challenging for ya yeah." Isaiah said as he had watched the Rangers Transform with awe. "Look best way I think to go about it is to put a lot more faith in the spirits of your stars. Sensei always preaches they don't make mistakes so surely they'll help you along the way. It's all the self doubt and those inhibitions Sensei was talking about that will stop you from achieving it."
Cory listened then walked over to Abby. "Alright... well maybe you gotta find your happy place... don't think of it as a height thing... see yourself in a secure building or wherever you find peace."
Cory stood next to her as he held his black scroll and began to focus as he started to glow with Blue Chakra.
At first Shotaro wanted to sock Cory for his first comment towards Abby but then he heard him say words of encouragement to her and smiled beneath his helmet so he can be nice Shotaro thought to himself Shotaro then took the black scroll and began to focus his chakra on it glowing red with energy he imagined himself as a towering vortex of fire burning away his doubts just as Ikamashi suggested
Honestly Abby wasn't offended by Cory's comment at all cause it was exactly what she was thinking and why she asked, even if she was embarrassed by her fear. She simply too the third scroll and tried to channeling her chakra into like her teammates were doing, but unlike with Cory and Shotara nothing seemed to happen.
She was about to give up for the day believing she needed to bond with her star but before she said anything she realized shat she was once again doing the exact thing Isaiah told her not to do. Instead upon seeing the other two succeed she tried putting more chakra out not realizing she was already at her. She was so focused on brute forcing something to happen that she didn't think about how high she would end up which lead to her succes as the scroll started glowing white.
The Three Rangers continued channeling their powers, letting go of the things they each felt were holding them back. Isaiah watched excitedly as the black scrolls began to open up.
The Rangers in Unison shouted "Ninja Art:ZordTransformation!"
Three lights of Red, White, and Blue shined bright and swallowed the Rangers respectively. The scrolls began to attach themselves to each Ranger becoming armor for them as they suddenly transformed and grew in size.
"Red Striker Zord!"
"Blue Striker Zord!"
"White Striker Zord!"
Isaiah stood with his jaw practically on the floor as he watched the three Rangers attain their Titan Forms.
"Holy crap we did it look at us!" Shotaro said marveling at the new robotic forms they possessed "High five guys!" Shotaro said holding up his Titanic palm up in the air waiting for a high five from his teammates
Abbey did her best not to look down but was somewhat surprised her robot form didn't have wings, something which she expected given her element then again none of the Zords seemed to have anything related to their element. She did appreciate having two weapons and what looked shields unlike Cory who no doubt had the strongest but unwieldiest weapon of the three. Doubt briefly set in again though when she realized that rather then having something unique her load out was basically the same as Shotaro's. Remembering what Takashi said though she suppressed it and decided to focus on coming up with her own fighting style while in this form
Cory's new form wouldn't let him express it but he was very much rolling his eyes at Shotaru who was trying to hi five everyone.
"Excellent job Abby. I definitely feel the power of this form... even more than when we're normally morphed!"
Isaiah spoke through their comms as he was observing the Zords. "Alright you guys, you guys are younger than Takashi and don't have any wear and tear so your forms should last longer. But no Rangers have stayed in titan form for extended periods of time. Hence why it's your trump card... and if the combination is possible I imagine even shorter time.
Speaking of which let's attempt the fusion! Power up your chakra and make contact with each other! The key is to outsource your chakra while also receiving another's!"
Cory sighed at the complication that seemed to be forming. Regardless He began to focus as he glowed with Blue Chakra. "Alright guys let's do it."
Abbey joined on in Shotaro's high five, maybe a bit too late but she was distracted by everything that came with her new form. She could immediately see how the time limit might be abused by the Naga and while seeing why the fusion was important and decided to ask about it even if for now the fusion part was more important. "Do you think it's possible to overcome that with training?" As soon asked that though she focused on raising her chakra, wanting to show she was committed to at least trying the combination. Before long she glowed with White Chakra, though not as bright as Cory.
Shotaro smiled as Abby reciprocated hishigh five and then heard Cory say they should try forming the Megazord combination together he heard Abby ask if they could sustain their Titan forms longer with training "Don't worry Abby I'm sure with enough training we can do anything we set our minds to" Shotaro said reassuring her as he began to focus his chakra glowing red with energy "All right let's do it guys go team Striker Zords combine!!" Shotaro said excitedly
The Three Zords began to glow and break apart into pieces starting to attach themselves to one another. Cory couldn't quite describe the feeling as the three Rangers combined. It didn't hurt whatsoever it more felt like he was being gently pulled into a huge space with them.
Isaiah watched excitedly as a new Titan was being formed before his eyes. The Transformation was happening and this would surely turn the tide against the Nara Clan. But then something went wrong. The Zord being formed began to break apart and there was an energy explosion. All Three Rangers landed on the ground hard, unharmed by the explosion but surely shaken up.
Isaiah stared at his iPad device checking the vitals of the Rangers which was paired to the suits and once realizing they were okay rushed over to them all. "You guys okay? Something went wrong with the combination."
"No duh! Argh we almost had it too... what could have went wrong?"
Shotar was left rocked by the explosion sending them all falling to the ground but still morphed. When he heard Cory ask what went wrong with the transformation he rolled his eyes beneath his helmet and stood up "Well I think the answer's obvious you're not a team player so clearly it's your fault" Shotaro said matter-of-factly
