Cory stepped forward as he began to get irritated. "Not a team player? I'm the only one taking this seriously. You wanna high five and sing kumbaya be my guest... but the Nara aren't going to wait around for us to get it together. Maybe it's not me... or Abby. Maybe it's you. The not so fearless leader who's in way over his head. You think your light show powers make you special? They just make you an easier target for Zonbu and his goons"
Abby remembered how it looked like her robot form didn't glow as bright as Cory's. If that was the problem not only would be unfair to let the others blame each other for it but it should be pretty easily fixed."Before you start playing the blame game it could simply be because I didn't use enough Chakra."
Shotaro was angry now and he didn't bother hiding it it was one thing to mock his attitude it was another thing entirely to insult his powers that were taught to him by his family
"Taking this seriously!? Don't make me laugh you're not fighting for any significant reason you're fighting for fun and don't you dare insult my powers especially when you're not even a real ninja I know it skips a generation in your family. My family learned how to harness the power of the grid has the Hunter family done anything noteworthy in Ranger history? No? And besides that I know you had it out for me and Abby from the moment you saw us in the alley so don't pretend like you care about us when you clearly don't
"You don't know a thing about me or my family. Keep them out of your mouth. I care about this city and the earth. I don't have room to care about anything else."
Cory pulled out his Striker Blade getting in a fighting stance as Isaiah began to panic. Suddenly the alarms sounded as Isaiah rushed to the computer. "Guys Zonbu sent a new friend for us to deal with! He's downtown. This petty quarrel can wait!"
Cory sheathed his blade and looked to Abby who claimed she hadn't put in enough chakra and sighed. "Whatever the reason is... we have business to attend to."
He shot a look at the Red Ranger before pulling out a Teleportation scroll and vanished as he headed to the area where the monster was.
Shotaro was prepared to do battle with Cory as he reached for his Stryker Blade. However, the alarm suddenly went off alerting everyone to a new monster brought by Zonbu and the Nara Clan "It's not petty Isaiah and this isn't over" Shotaro said grumbling as he pulled out his own teleportation scroll and jumped through following after Cory heading to where the monster was
Abby wasn't sure if this monster attack had good timing or bad timing. On the one hand it prevented Shotaro and Cory from fighting but on the other hand if they couldn't work together who knew what might happen. Still it wasn't like she could sit the battle out so she followed her teammates using her own teleportation scroll while also deciding to at least make sure to remind Shotaro that Cory wasn't the only member of the team whose family was only occasionally involved with the Power Rangers, after all since Corey had his flaws her grandfather's uncle was the only one in her family to wield one of the Stars.
When the Rangers showed up the street was filled with Narabots and the new monster terrorizing the civilians. Gozu raised his Lance and released a concussive blast sending a couple of cars flying in the air.
The monster cackled watching as a car was about to hit a mother and child. Suddenly he witness a blue flash of light speed by as The Blue Ranger was riding a wave of water and scooped up the mother and her child getting them out of the way safely and watched as they hurried off. He pulled his Striker Blade out and cut down a few bots before turning his attention to the new for.
Seeing that Cory went for the monster Abby wondered if it was smarter for her to take down the Narabots so that they couldn't interfere or attack any civilians or help her teammate out. Remembering the argument he and Shotaro just had, she decided that at the moment she couldn't expect them to help each other out so she was somehow gonna have to play support to both of them as necessary. This wasn't gonna be easy.
Still it looked like Corey had the monster's attention so Abby took the chance to take out her Striker Blaster and fired a few quick poorly aimed shots at it while trying to see what Shotaro was doing. However she herself was distracted enough that she didn't notice a few of the Narabots sneaking up behind her.
Shotaro was next to appear leaping out of the portal created by the teleportation scroll he saw a few Nara bots sneaking up on Abby and he cut them down with his Stryker Blade "Make sure you're aware of your surroundings okay Abby?" He asked her reassuringly he didn't have time to say much more however as the monster launched a few cars into the air with people still inside them thinking quickly he utilized his ninja streak cut open the doors and got the people out and safely back on the ground "Hey Renaissance fair you like to put people in hot water!? Well you're about to be in hot water yourself Ninja Art Blazing Inferno!" Shotaro exclaimed summoning his chakrams and using the techniques he used in the last battle trapping the Knight like monster in a ring of fire with fire balls pelting him
Gozu watched as he was now faced with 3 Rangers. He belted out a laugh as The Res Ranger attempted a fire attack against him but suddenly a barrier appeared in front of him shielding him from the flames.
The Blue Ranger ran up beside Red "Well would you look at that..." The Blue Ranger said sarcastically as he spun around blasting a few more Bots with his Striker Blade blaster mode. He then placed a scroll onto his Striker Blade as it transformed into his Trident weapon.
"Tide Changer! Now watch this!"
Cory swung his Trident towards Gozu as a Blade of water shot out but immediately was blocked by a barrier. "What the?"
Gozi cackled and released a concussive blast at the Red and Blue Ranger hitting them in the chest sending them both flying back.
Shotaro was knocked back by the energy blast landing next to Cory sprawled out on his back "Looks like you couldn't do much better smart guy" Shotaro said his voice dripping with sarcasm "Listen if we can squash our beef for just a few minutes I have an idea about how to stop him but we'll need Abby's help too" Shotaro said to Cory
Abby was grateful for Shotaro dealing with those Narabots, even if his attack on the monster failed. Corey going for another head-on attack after seeing the barrier though was either him being stupid or a matter of pride. It was obvious that either attacks from behind or simultaneous attacks from different directions would be the best way to go. Just as she was about to suggest that Shotaro revealed he had a plan himself and she decided to keep her idea secret for a bit longer since the monster overhearing her yelling about backattacks would defeat the point. She had no trouble helping te Red Ranger and after she ran up to join her teammates after shooting a Narabot in the head.
"Listen guys I know a thing or two about energy barriers and I'm willing to bet that he can't block multiple attacks simultaneously so I'll attack from the front Cory we're close to the water you're in your element use that and attack him from behind Abby I know you have a fear of heights but I'm going to need you to jump up high and attack from above he won't be able to cover all bases and one of our attacks should hit him Abby don't worry about falling I'll create a platform out of light for you to land on you guys with me?" Shotaro asked his teammates
Cory shook his head as he started to get into position. Since Shotaru claimed to know how they should attack he sighed deciding to give the Red Ranger a chance.
Cory twirled his Tide Changer as he stood near a water fountain as Gozu was focused on the others. "Ninja Art: Roaring Wave!" The Blue Ranger send a wave of water crashing down on Gozu but just then a repelling force suddenly struck Cory, his attack being sent back to him hitting him hard and sent flying into a car back first.
Despite Shotaro offering to make her a platform Abby couldn't help but hesitate, though she did jump up high. The hesitation meant that Corey ended up being hit by the power of his own Roaring Wave just as she got in position above Gozu. Still maybe since she hoped that there might a cooldown on that barrier she launched her own attack. "Ninja Art: Zephyr Strike!"
She quickly found out she was wrong when another barrier formed around the knight and she too got hit by the returned power of her own attack, which threw her off balance to boot."Gah!"
