The Antilight Grows Darker
The Underworld, a world where only the souls that were banished for their crimes by the gods, dwell. This world is watched over by the Queen of the Underworld Medusa, now free from her control by Hades, Medusa looks to break free and seek her revenge on Palutena and take over the realm of angels, as she was preparing the Underworld Army for an attack.
"Ok Underworld troops, as soon as we have Palutena in her sights we launch our attack and make those angels bleed, and what's left of humanity after this Antilight Invasion, will be turned into stone."
"Foolish Medusa, you think you will turn the very humans that Lord Daraku plans to feast on, into Stone, not if I have anything to say about it." The Shadow Queen said with Dark Pit and an army of Ings, Shadow Sirens, and Twili along side her.
"Shadow Queen, it's been a long time hasn't it?"
"I would've turned this world into a burning inferno if it wasn't for those foolish heroes, now Medusa, get out of my way so I may add the Underworld to the Antilight."
"What, you will not take away, what I worked long for to rebuild, I shall turn you into stone." Medusa said as she used her eyes to create a flash to turn the Shadow Queen into Stone but it had no effect on the Shadow Queen as she laughed at Medusa's attempted attack. "What, how are you not a statue?"
"I am not a mortal being; and my power in invulnerable to your magic tricks; now BURN!" The Shadow Queen opened her eyes and a bolt of lightning struck Medusa setting her head snakes on fire.
"NO, how can this happen?" Medusa asked as Dark Pit took out what looked like an arrow containing Antilight and fired it at Medusa.
"No, this cannot be happening!" Medusa cried as the Shadow Queen summoned a bunch of dead hands to grab and drag Medusa down into the Darkness. as The Hands of the Shadow Queen began to torment Medusa, The Shadow Queen and Dark Pit all began to speak some chant.
"DO SI MEI LAH FU TO ME SU!" chanted both the Shadow Queen and Dark Pit as a Antilight Portal opened up and began to consume the Underworld. "Master Daraku, we offer you all of the lost souls of the Underworld for you to feast on." said the Shadow Queen as a number of screaming spirits would be consumed into the Antilight, which what appeared to thousands of Souls now being consumed by the Demon Daraku.
"Thank you for the offering; now the Underworld and it's thousands of Souls now belong to me, as for now, the Inferno shall be what we will consume next to further expand the Antilight." The voice of Daraku said as The Shadow Queen and Dark Pit retreated back to the Antilight Realm for now.
Meanwhile in the peaceful town of Onett, there was chaos everywhere as Shadow Beasts, and more monsters of the Antilight began to roam wild all over the peaceful town. Among the chaos causers was Onett Resident Ness along with Shulk, Robin, and Lucina but they were under the control of the Antilight. Those that were watching in horror was Ness's Mother and Sister as they saw their son and brother with a look of a boy possessed.
"Ness sweetie, why are you doing this, you're supposed to be a good kid?" asked Ness's mother as Ness had a smile on his face.
"Must destroy Pokey Minch!" Ness said as the Giant Mechon from before known as Metal Face has Pokey Minch encased inside of a energy barrier over top the Minch House.
"HAHAHAHAHAHA!" The Minch family, nothing more than a lying bunch of Fat and Greedy Pigs; and their idiot son was lead to believe that weakling Giygas is the most evil being there is, wrong, my Lord Daraku is and now it's time to make an example; Ness, go ahead and slay your Arch Enemy and we'll take care of the rest." Said Emi as she was orchestrating the attack. Lucina would hand Ness her Falchion sword as he would approach Pokey.
"Yes, Pokey is a bully, he must pay with his life." Ness said under possession as memories of being bullied by Pokey Flashed in his mind.
"He taunted you, mocked you, his greedy family wanted money from you, he betrayed you, he deserves to have his blood spilled all over the Earth for his sins. Now take Lucina's Sword and slice him into Pork Chops." Emi said as Ness was about to take Lucina's Falchion to strike Pokey with before the attack was halted by Mewtwo who used his Psychic powers to knock the sword out of Ness's Hands. "YOU AGAIN, TRAITOR!"
"The real Ness would never Kill another human; even if it was his enemy." Mewtwo said looking at Emi.
"Hm, well let's see what Ness thanks of that; also Shulk, Robin, Lucina, attack the Traitor!" Emi ordered as The Three Swordfighters dashed at Mewtwo with their weapons as Mario, Link, and Pit thwarted the attack.
"Ness, Shulk, Robin, Lucina use this to fight the Antilight." Mewtwo said tossing a Purelight Crystal as the Purelight began to surround the area as Ness, Shulk, Lucina, and Robin all stopped their attacks, mesmerized by the Purelught.
"No step away from the light; it's trying to blind you!" all of a sudden the Purelight transported everybody to a battlefield with light and darkness crossedover as Ness, Shulk, Robin, and Lucina waking up.
"What's going on, where am I?" Robin said as he looked over and saw the others around him. "Hey you guys, do you know where we are at?"
"I have no idea Robin, either that was a dream but it all feels so real." Lucina said as Ness began to tug on Shulk's arm with a look of worry.
"Hey bro; that looks like us, only more eviler." Ness said as Shulk along with Lucina and Robin see what appeared to be Antilight versions of themselves with evil looking smiles.
"You would rather be weak than be strong, have you forgotten what they have done?" said the voice of the Antilight clone of Shulk showing the Mechons killing Fiora and Pokey betraying Ness joining Giygas.
"You are nothing more than evil manifestations of ourselves, it's time we used the Purelight to cleanse the Antilight from our bodies once and for all, let's tip the scales." Robin said as the four heroes dashed over to attack their shadowy doppelgangers. Everybody did battle with their doppelgangers, however the power of the Antilight was over powering them as they felt themselves being crushed under the power of the Antiight.
"You are nothing without the power of the Antilight, now your souls belong to Lord Daraku." said Antilight Shulk as he took the Dark Manado and was looking to strike the real Shulk before Ness intervened.
"PK Thunder!" Ness cried focusing an electrical attack at the Antilight version of Shulk. "Don't hurt my big brother!" Just then Ness was hit in the leg with the Baseball bat from the Antilight Doppelganger of himself as the Shadowy clone tried to bash Ness's skull in with a bat before Shulk dashed over and back slashed the clone of Ness, as Shulk helped Ness to his feet.
"Are you ok, little buddy?" Shulk asked helping the boy that calls him his big brother up.
"Yeah, though my leg hurts a bit."
"We'll treat that after we help Lucina and Robin." Shulk said as Ness nodded as they dashed over with Ness helping Lucina by firing PK Fire at the Antilight clone of Lucina and Shulk using the Manado to slash at The Clone of Robin helping him out.
"Thanks for the help."
"It's no problem we're all in this together." Shulk said as the Group looked over as the clones all began to morph into eachother forming some type of creature. "What on Bionis is going on?" Shulk asked as Ness began to tug a bit at Shulk's arm with Shulk providing comfort to his younger friend as the Antilight clones transformed into a Four Headed Bipedal Beast, made out of a swarm of Antilight. "Everyone let's go all out and attack that thing." Shulk said as he, Ness, Lucina, and Robin all lashed out against the Antilight Beast but the beast would breath a breath of Antilight trying to attack the four heroes as they did their best to avoid contact with the attack. The Beast than used tentacles to try to constrict Lucina as Robin would try to cut her free.
"Help, please!" Lucina cried in fear as the Beast opened it's mouth looking to devour Lucina as Robin and Shulk would use their weapons to free Lucina as Ness would focus a thunder attack on the Antilight Beast.
"PK THUNDER" Ness cried as his Thunder projectile would hit the Beast in it's open mouth; stunning it as Shulk and Robin was able to break Lucina Free as they would unload their attacks on the monster. Then a ray of Purelight shined down on the dark swarm of Antilight as the beast found itself weakened, as Mewtwo was using the Power of the Purelight to hold back the Monster.
"Now Finish off the Beast!: Mewtwo cried as Ness, Shulk, Robin, and Lucina charged at the beast only foe a swirl of Antilight blocked the Purelight's Power as it began to absorb the best as they all heard a laugh.
"Do you honestly think you could easily defeat one of my many manifestations; you only got lucky; but now it's time for the real fun to begin" The Voice said as Mewtwo looked over knowing what it was.
"Daraku, Where are you?" All of a sudden the Battlefield was transofrmed again this time showing Onett in Flames and Chaos. "What's going on?" Mewtwo asked as he saw Pokey lying in a pool of blood on the ground. as Ness ran over to his Rival and Neighbor but only to be stopped in his tracks by Metal Face who's sharp claws were covered in Blood.
"AWW what's the mater Psychic Boy; even though you and Pokey hate eachother, you still care for the useless Fatso; either way, it's time that Lord Daraku to have some Human Flesh and Souls to feed on." A Massive Shadowy hand appeared and Grabbed Pokey's dead body and tossed it in the air and the Face of Daraku appeared in the Sky and devoured Pokey, as Ness looked in fear, just then he heard screaming in the area, as he ran over and saw a house on fire, and a Woman's voice calling out for help.
"Ness....NESS...is that you?" A voice said as Ness ran over and saw his Mother and Sister trapped inside their house while it is on fire.
"Mom..Tracey, hang on me and my friends will get you out of here?" Ness said as he and Shulk walk into Ness's burning house only for the Roof to be ripped off by the Hand of Daraku, as the Face of the Antilight Demon God with a wicked smile as everyone stood frozen in fear.
"Time for a nice, HOT FRESH MEAL." Daraku said as his hand grabbed Tracey and Ness's Mom and began to crush their bones with one hand.
"MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!" Ness wasn't able to move, all he could do was watch in horror as his Mother and Sister would then be tossed in the air and then land inside the Mouth of the Antilight Demon God Daraku. as Ness fell to his knees as Daraku licked his demonic face.
"Their Flesh made for a delicious meals and it's too bad Ness, you stood up to Giygas, but I make you fall to your knees as you helpless watch me devour your neighbors and your family; as for you Manado Boy, I have a special Surprise for you." Daraku opened up one of his wings that housed thousands of tortured souls screaming and Daraku pulled out several of them which turned out to be Shulk's Friends from The Bionis, which were Reyn, Sharla, Juju, Dunban, Melia, Riki, and a girl that Shulk remembered.
"No...everyone...F..F.FIORA! You monster, FREE THEM!" Shulk Demanded as all of a sudden the enviroment began to change around Ness and Shulk as they began to hear what sounded like Emi's Voice as Ness and Shulk found themselves spinning around in circles and found themselves falling through air as they fell unconscious after landing inside of what appeared to be a Circus Tent, after about what felt like an Hour Ness began to stir awake.
"Where am I? Is this The Circus, just then Ness looked over at Shulk as began shaking him. "Bro wake up."
"Five more minutes, Fiora!" Shulk said oblivious that Ness is trying to wake him up, as Ness began to tickle Shulk's neck a bit. "HAHAHAHAHAHA, hey i'm really feeling it." Shulk said as he woke up and found himself face to face with Ness. "Oh Ness, what happened?"
"I don't know, one moment I witnessed seeing my Mother and Sister get devoured by that monster, and now we're inside some Circus." Ness said taking a look around the Circus as he felt Shulk's Hand touch his Shoulder.
"I'm sorry about your Family Ness, I have lost all of my friends thanks to that monster and now we have a new goal, to destroy Daraku and put an end to the Antilight once and for all." Shulk said as Ness wrapped his arms around Shulk and buried his face in Shulk's Abdomen, crying. Robin and Lucina also regained consciousness watching Shulk comfort Ness.
"That's really sweet of you Shulk, Ness Really cares for you like a brother." Lucina said as Shulk smiled comforting Ness. Then all of a sudden a laugh was heard as a strange looking Clown began to approach the group with an Aura of Antilight, and Crimson Eyes.
"HAHAHAHA, Hello Children, it's me Darko The Clown and welcome to the Antilight Circus, HAHAHAHAHA!" The Clown said as Ness took Shulk by the hand with Robin and Lucina standing their ground.
"Really, A Clown, come on guys let's take down this Clown." Robin said as the Clown continued to laugh.
"You think i'm a joke, WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, i'll show you what it is to be FUNNY! Now let's start the Show." The Clown said as a Swarm of Antilight swarmed around the Clown mutating and transforming him into what looked like a Giant Spider with the Clown's Face as the head of the Spider as it took it's eight legs and approached the group of four. The Four of them acted fast and began charging at the Antilight Clown Spider, with Shulk using the Manado on the legs with Robin using his Magic to attack with, while Lucina played defense, and Ness using his PSI Powers on the Spider, but this Spider had some tricks, as it spat out a stringy web trapping the Four heroes on a Spider Web. The Four Heroes were struggling to free themselves from the Web but the Spider had it's pray has the Clown Spider would walk onto the Web ready to devour the Four heroes. As the Clown opened it's mouth a Beam of Purelight shot out and fired at the Spider, as the one that shot the Purelight was Mewtwo who used his Psychic Powers to free Ness, Shulk, Lucina, and Robin from the web as the Clown Spider would dissolve into the swarm again as Emi would appear.
"You dare interupt My Circus, you will pay." Emi said as Mewtwo would use the Purelight on Emi to create another memory in Emi's mind from her home. "Good Morning Mommy and Daddy." Emi said sitting in a Chair at the table as her mother placed a plate of pancakes on the table as she picked up a fork and knife. "MMMMMM, this looks delicious, mommy."
"Well I just want to make sure these pancakes are delicious for our sweet little girl, your dad has a special surprise planned for us today." Emi's mother said as Emi looked over at her father.
"Really daddy, what is it?" Emi looked over at her father who sat down his coffee and looked over at his daughter.
"We're going out to take a family hike, and have a picnic, and at night watch the stars and make a wish." Emi's father said as she looked over at her father with a smile.
"That sounds like fun, I want to bring my Pokemon toys with me, and maybe I can catch my very own Pokemon." Emi said as her father patted her hair as she began to laugh. Emi was watching the flashbacks and something began to struck her brain. "Mommy, Daddy."
"Yes Emi this is your family, you spent the morning getting ready for a hike with your family, now let me show you what happened after you and your family ate breakfast and went outside." Mewtwo said as Emi and her parents all were wearing backpacks on their backs as they began to make their way to the hiking path that they were about to take.
"Emi, sweetheart I want to give this to you, I know how much you love Pokemon and it's a gift from Professor Birch from Hoenn." Emi's father handed Emi a Pokeball and Emi had a look of both shock and excitement.
"You mean...." Emi takes the ball and opens it and out of the ball came a Mudkip, as Emi smiled and hugged her first ever Pokemon. "It's so cute, I love it. thank you so much Daddy." Emi said as she hugged her father, ad her mother also hugged her as well making a family hug, as memories started to flow through Emi's mind. "Mommy and Daddy gave me that Mudkip, why do I...."
"EMI, do not let these false memories cloud your judgment, this is a lie, I am your real family." Daraku said as Mewtwo would stretch his hand in front of Emi.
"Daraku, stop poisoning this child, she has a family, a family that YOU took from her, and you brainwashed her to spread fear across the Universe, you are nothing more than a monster, and the Purelight will destroy the Antilight once and for all." Mewtwo said as all of a sudden an Antilight projectile hit the projected memory shattering it, as Emi found her self back to serving Daraku.
"Emi, we must return, and continue our invasion, you are needed in Inferno, now Emi." Daraku said as an Antilight Portal opened and Emi walked through it with Mewtwo looking over at Emi, making her escape.
"Continue to shatter her memories and manipulate her for your own cowardly purposes, but soon she will know the real truth, and her heart will over come your darkness, we swear to you on that." Mewtwo said as he looked over at Shulk, Ness, Lucina, and Robin, as they found themselves teleported back to Onett which is now a wasteland of ruins.
"We're back in Onett, except there is nothing but destruction, just like Colony 6." Shulk said over seeing all of the damage caused by the Antilight Army.
"Mom, Tracey, even Pokey i'm sorry I couldn't save you, I knew we wouldn't stand a chance, which is why we need to get stronger and put an end to this nightmare once and for all." Ness said determined after witnessing his mother and sistter be devoured by Daraku, Ness has made it clear that he wants to help defeat Daraku and make him pay for the destruction he has caused as he looked over at Shulk, Robin, and Lucina, as Lucina just remembered something.
"I just noticed something you guys, Shulk said he saw his friends suffering inside of Daraku's Cape along with Ness's Family, I saw my Father in there as well, he killed my father." Lucina said as Robin had a look of shock on his face.
"Chrom is dead, one moment he was with us, but...we've been under control by Emi, how did?" Robin said confused as Mewtwo and the others approached the group.
"Emi is going to Mount Fimbulventr, with the rest of the Antilight Army to merge that with the Antilight, we need to try and put a stop to them, the Antilight's power would be so powerful that there would be no hope in stopping them." Mewtwo said as the four youngsters nodded as Mewtwo tried to open a portal, but then all of a sudden another Antilight Portal as Marth, Ike, Meta-knight, Red, and Lucas dropped out of the portal and looked over as Lucina, Robin, Ness, and Shulk.
"Ancestor, you along with the Radiant Hero, and the rest of your allies have been infected with Antilight, well we'll make sure to save you guys." Lucina said drrawing her Falchion as Marth did to.
"We're outnumbered 5 to 4, are you sure we can take them on?" Robin said looking over at the disadvantage they have, as Lucina looked at Mewtwo who was opening a portal.
"Mewtwo, where are you going?"
"I'm opening a portal to Paradiso, even though the Lumen Sages are enemies of Bayonetta, she told me her Father is a Lumen Sage that was betrayed and we need to use it's light to expand the Purelight, if we have any hope in combating the Antilight." Mewtwo said opening a Portal, as Bayonetta readied her weapons to prepare for any attacks from any Angels, as she, Mewtwo, Mario, Link, Pit, Palutena, Rosalina, Peach, Zelda, Yoshi, and Kirby made their way to the portal leaving Ness, Shulk, Robin, and Lucina to take on, Meta-Knight, Marth, Ike, Red, and Lucas at a 4 to 5 disadvantage.
"I guess we have no choice that to fight, ok we may be down, but we can't let them defeat us." Lucina said as all of a sudden a Blaze of fire appeared and made contact with Marth as the one who used the fire, appeared to be a red haired swordsman, wielding his sword looking at the possessed heroes.
"It's never a fair fight even if your one man down. Heir to the throne, it is I Roy." Roy said as Lucina and the others looked at the Red haired swordsman with Ness looking over remembering the swordsman from the Melee Days.
"Your the Lycian General, it's a good thing you showed up, now we have a fair fight, but how did you get here?" Lucina asked as Roy readied the Binding Blade.
"I'll explain later, we need to restore Marth, Ike, and their allies and save them from the Antilight." Roy said, as they all charged at the Antilight possesed heroes.
The Antilight continues to expand in more dark and twisted ways; families have been destroyed and many lives have been taken by Daraku, Emi under his control, and now their sights set on The Inferno. Is there any hope for the Heroes of the Purelight, and can Mewtwo get Paradiso to merge with the Purelight, and can the possesed heroes be restored to their normal states; and where did Roy come from? Stay tuned for the next chapter of The Antilight Invasion.
