The Congo – Fire Down Below

Earth is a beautiful planet, lush with life, overflowing with energy and ripe for the taking. The Decepticons want to conquer it and harness that energy for their own purposes. The Autobots want to keep it out of Decepticon hands. This forum contains their battles and struggles all across the planet.

Offroad ignored Motormaster’s seething rage, seeing that the brute really only ever had two emotional states, one of them being angry and the other being sadistic. Snarl was right up against him now, and the daredevil’s green face lit up with a grin. “Come, get some,” he said mockingly, cocking his launcher. Aiming right below Snarl’s feet, Offroad fired off a glass gas pellet, and then immediately stowed away his rifle to swap to his dual submachine guns. A simple step backward and one pull of the trigger let out a barrage of bullets.

The grin didn’t get wiped from his face. It was almost unnerving, really.

Skies over Mt. Myiragongo

Divebomb and Swoop arced around one another, occasionally firing off a missile or a laser blast, each aware of the other's flying skills and ability to dodge.

"You stole my name, Predacon!" Swoop cried, firing again as he dovetailed left.

"I'll steal your spark this time, Dinoslag!" the Predacon chided in return.

”Okay boys! Time to give it a test run!” Motormaster bellowed.

"How do we even...?"

But before Breakdown could finish his question and get an answer, he was feeling an urge to transform. It was coming from...his spark? Blah. Bah! What sap. But with all the other Stunticons around it felt....different....than it used to.

Breakdown transformed, and this time it wasn't into a car.

Another explosion rocked the mountainside, showering the assembled Constructicons in dirt and debris as they did their best to ward off the Dinobot assault.

This was ridiculous. The Dinobots were hopelessly outnumbered with three of the Decepticons' special teams here, plus a couple odds and ends and, well, Devastator.

Long Haul and Bonecrusher were getting to show the areas where they really shined--as least as far as the Constructicons went--battle. With the cover and counterattacks they provided, Scrapper was able to recollect his thoughts.

In the distance he could see the beginnings of the Stunticons' own gestalt starting to take shape.

"Let's try again, boys," Scrapper said, initiating the transformation sequence. Mixmaster quickly took up position as the other leg and the others fell into position until the green titan was roaring in anger and searching for his first target.

“Let’s stay out of the Dinos big ol' meathooks, eh?” Breakdown said as he helped Drag Strip get back up to his feet again. Being knocked down by a Dinobot had certainly scrambled the yellow racer’s circuits and left more than a few dents across his chassis but thankfully Drag was still functioning and able to continue fighting.

“No arguments here, Breaks,” Drag Strip replied with a chuckle. “Thanks for the assist.”

”And you! Stop playing around and assemble on my position!” Motormaster bellowed with an intense glare.

“Oh yeah, this is barrels of fun,” Breakdown muttered under his breath.

“I don’t know if you could call it fun, but, yeah, let’s not keep the boss waiting,” Drag Strip agreed as he and his comrade headed over to their commander’s side.

”Okay boys! Time to give it a test run!”

Drag Strip wasn’t sure how to commence with the combination. This was the very first attempt the Stunticons had made to merge together. In all reality, it was a test run. Hopefully, it would be a successful one given the current circumstances.

The yellow racer glanced over at Breakdown as the white mech began to transform into something that was definitely not a car. Drag Strip then felt a similar sensation, one that he could not really control. Within astroseconds, Drag had also begun to change into a shape he had never taken before - a giant right arm as a hand then began to form out of his joined together legs.

“Oh, wow….”
_______________

Razorclaw felt the mechanical apatosaurus rise up to an almost vertical stance, forcing the lion-former to dig his serrated claws deeper into the Jungle Warrior’s metal hide as the Predacon Commander began to slide down his opponent’s back. Deep claw marks were left in Razorclaw’s wake as Sludge then slammed his massive feet back down onto the forest floor, sending out a shockwave across the area.

The lion-former lost his grip and tumbled off the Dinobot’s back. Razorclaw shook his lion head as Sludge returned to his robot mode and slashed at the Predacon leader with his sword. Razorclaw leapt out of the way and swiftly transformed back into his own robot mode, drawing out his own blade. If it was a sword fight this dimwitted brute wanted then that’s exactly what he would get!

>>”Megatron to Razorclaw. It has come to my attention that you are under attack. This site is crucial to our ongoing efforts. Do you have the situation handled?”<<

The Priorty-1 communication from the slagmaker came across Razorclaw’s comm line. Clearly Soundwave had been keeping an optic on the situation in the Congo and had alerted Megatron of the current battle. The Predacon Commander responded over the same secured frequency:

>>”Lord Megatron, it is just the five Dinobots and we have them greatly outnumbered. While they are certainly a formidable force to be reckoned with, both the Constructions and the Stunticons are in the process of combining. With two massive gestalts, along with my own Predacons, we should have no problem defending this site. I will keep you informed as the battle progresses, my lord.”<<

With the message sent, Razorclaw turned his attention back to Sludge and charged at him, swinging his vibrating sonic sword ferociously at the Jungle Warrior, hoping to slice off the Dinobot’s hand that was holding his energo sword.
_______________

As Grimlock charged towards Headstrong, he saw the incoming balls of energy from the Predacon’s plasma-sphere launchers. The mechanical Tyrannosaurus ducked down to avoid the first volley, but Sludge’s little earthquake caused the rex-former to stumble slightly off balance. In an attempt to stabilize himself, Grimlock slowed his assault, turning his body and skidding along the ground sideways until he had stopped just as two more energy balls struck his side.

By now, Headstrong was also charging with his horn at the ready. Grimlock quickly swung his massive tail at the mechanical rhino in an attempt to knock him off his feet just as he had done to Tantrum. Alas, that was not what happened. Instead, Headstrong’s horn impaled the rex-former’s tail, getting stuck in the process. Grimlock could feel the pain of the acid as it secreted from the Predacon’s horn, but it only made the Dinobot leader angrier.

“Get off me, fragger!” An enraged Grimlock roared as he then swung his tail up into the air with Headstrong still attached by his horn. The metal Tyrannosaurus then slammed his tail, and Headstrong along with it, back down to the ground, hoping to dislodge the metal rhino and give him one massive headache in the process.
_______________

Snarl had been so close to slamming directly into the Constructicons, but it was not meant to be. The Desert Warrior was so focused on making sure Devastator didn’t form that he had not seen Motormaster off to the side firing his cyclone rifle at him. The intense gale-force wind knocked Snarl well off course, sending him flying into the forest where he crashed through several trees before landing in the overgrown brush on the forest floor.

Sitting up, Snarl rubbed his cranium and quickly brushed himself off. Wasting little time, the Desert Warrior got back up to his feet and pushed his way through the forest until he was finally back at the mining site. As he gazed around, Snarl saw that Devastator had finally formed, but he also noticed that the Stunticons seemed to be undergoing a similar transformation into assorted limbs of a much larger behemoth.

The Desert Warrior quickly opened a comm line to his fellow Dinobots:

>>”Fellas, this Snarl. We have big problem! Devastator has formed and Stunticons look to be combining now, as well! Me try and stop them!”<<

However, before Snarl could react further, a glass gas pellet exploded near his feet, forcing him to jump back to avoid its destructive effects. The plated Dinobot then looked over to see Offroad standing not far away, now shooting a barrage of bullets at him.

“Stupid ‘Con!” Snarl roared as bullets bounced off his thick, tough armored plating. One struck the side of his head, causing his vision to blur for a moment before returning to normal. It was an annoyance more than anything. “Me, Snarl, no have time for this!” The Desert Warrior then aimed his missile launcher at the Stunticon wannabe and fired off numerous rockets at Offroad. The resulting explosions made it hard to see if the plated Dinobot had made a direct hit or not, but hopefully it would at least stop Offroad’s attack long enough for the solar-powered mech to do something about the threat of duel combiners.

Working quickly, Snarl then raced out into the clearing of the mining site and aimed his missile launcher up at Devastator’s head, firing off several rockets in the hopes of blinding the massive green gestalt even if it was only temporarily. The Desert Warrior then set his sights on the combining Stunticons, firing off a barrage of missiles at the group in an attempt to keep them from joining together, as well.

Headstrong had neither needed or wanted this. Fighting the Dinobots was a challenge all Predacons were eager to accept. Fighting Grimlock though? Yeah, he’d have rather left it to Razorclaw or at very least having someone to back him up. But it wasn’t the case here. Despite of their fancy camouflages and Divebomb’s task or being an early warning system – the Dinobots had caught the Predacons off guard. A complete, utter humiliation. There was no carefully calculated strategy by Razorclaw to heed to. There was just chaos like they had been reverted to mostly harmless protoforms instead of being the galaxy’s most feared hunters.

But there was no time to dwell on that. His charge had at least stopped Grimlock’s charge for whatever good it was for. For a moment it had even seemed like he’d be able to score a critical enough hit against the mechanical tyrannosaur. Alas, that was not the case. Instead Grimlock had turned his more vulnerable belly away from Headstrong’s charge and swung his tail at the charging rhino. Given the fact the Predacons had went through size change modifications to camouflage themselves better for their mission, it also meant the Dinobot commander was unusually big in comparison. Which in turn allowed Grimlock to use his tail more efficiently than normally against the charging Headstrong. While Headstrong managed to impale the Dinobot’s tail – certainly damaging it – it apparently did little else than anger to monster for the next thing Headstrong knew was being ragdolled helplessly around by the tyrannosaur’s tail before being slammed to the ground hard enough to almost knock him senseless with his horn also being dislodged from the Dinobot. Though probably not without the slam costing extended damage to Grimlock’s tail too.

And thus as much as it pained him, Headstrong was forced to do something uncharacteristic. He called for assistance. »”Headstrong to Predacons! Need help! Can’t deal with Grimlock alone!”«

One by one the Stunticons grew in size and connected with each other in a way that certainly felt unnatural to say the least. If they were being fired upon it didn't register. Shockwave's improvements on the combining process had considerably strengthened their combined integrity field. The process was shielded to a point of being nearly impervious to most hand held Cybertronian weapons. The was no stopping the combination anymore.

Motormaster had expected the be solely on the driver’s seat of their combined form but that was not the case at all. Instead he had found himself in a chaotic vortex of thoughts and impulses not of his own. No, the five or them were all there. And not at all there at the same time for their combined form had a mind of its own. Mind they all were part of but not necessarily heeded at. A maelstrom of conflicting emotions with the strongest of them being; wrath, depression, madness, paranoia, pride and hate that bound them all together. Motormaster even heard its name in his mind despite none of them never having voiced it. A loud rumble. Menasor. Menasor!

The gargantuan beast grabbed its head with both of its hands as in suffering from massive headache, roaring its name a loud, calling for the voices in its mind to cease, ”WE ARE MENASOR! NO! NOOOO! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! I AM MENASOR! I AM!”

A bright red flash of his optics. Silence. A wicked, murderous grin. Hands being moved away from the sides of head. A massive bright and silvery sword crackling with electricity flaring up in its right hand. A schizophrenic nightmare given a form. Menasor.

OOC: Anyone playing a Stunticon can post with Menasor next.

Divebomb could hardly believe what he was seeing--inbetween artfully dodging the aerial Dinobot's attacks. The combination process had worked again. Was this the fate of the Predacons as well? Did he want it to be. It looked tempting, to be sure, but there was surely a down-

*FWOOOMMMMM*

Several missiles rocketed past, one clipping the Predacon's wing and erupting in a gush of fire and plasma. Divebomb went angling downward, smoke trailing behind. He could hear the Dinobot let out a screech of primal victory.

We'll see... the Predacon thought smugly as he lost altitude. He began to angle towards the newly-formed Stunticon titan. As he fell, another Predacon registered in his comm.

>>”Headstrong to Predacons! Need help! Can’t deal with Grimlock alone!"<<

Divebomb was not currently in a position capable of rendering aid, but that might change....
