The Skies we're being devoured by the Antilight, plants, trees, and nature itself was dying at the mercy of it's power, and monsters everywhere we're murdering innocent lives and destroying cities turning the entire Earth, into a barren wasteland. Above the Antilight covered Skies was the Plane carrying Zero, Ness, Shulk, Lucina, Robin, Roy, Issac, Fox, and Falco as they were all looking out the windows, thinking as Shulk held Ness in his arms as the boys looked out the window both looking pretty scared.
"The sands in the Hourglass is running very low, and I get the feeling we're on Borrowed time, hopefully we can restore whatever allies of their own power before The Antilight completely consumes all of us." Robin said as he saw all sorts of Demons hovering over the sky but none of them we're in their direction.
"I hope we get there in time to rescue Zero's friends and any other allies we have, I only have one last Purelight Gem left, and I hope we can use it to restore whoever's left." Lucina said as Shulk approached them, carrying Ness in his arms.
"Hey I think a vision is coming to my mind, remember how Zero along with Fox and Falco were able to break free from the hold of the Antilight, and I think it has to do with that Emi Girl." Shulk said while cuddling Ness in his arms.
"Now that you mention it, I think you're right, that Girl did have everybody under her control but some how the Antilight that was held on Fox, Falco, and Zero was able to separate leaving only a taint in their bodies, which we were able to easily free them from the control of it." Robin said as Fox, Falco, Zero, and Issac looked on confused but still went along with the conversation knowing what was on the line.
"Yeah, that Emi was under Daraku's control, but Mewtwo was able to see what power Daraku had while controlling her and was able to use the Purelight to develop the memories of Emi's past with her family, and was able to open her heart, and broke the control she was under." Shulk said as his eyes glowed as he saw the visions in his mind.
"Yeah, not only that, but since she took control over our friends, the purelight which we represent and our hearts were able to allow the Purelight to destroy the taint inside of them made by the Antilight, restoring everybody to normal." Ness said, as Shulk stroked the younger boy's hair.
"If Emi's control over our allies has broken than I wonder why they haven't managed to break free on their own?" Robin asked as the others weren't sure of a clear answer; then all of a sudden they felt the plane shake as they heard a scratch coming from the outside.
"Oh great, not now of all times, something is attacking the Plane." Zero said as Ridley appeared in front of the ship as Zero stopped the controls. "All right you ugly monster, you want to fight, than we'll give you one." zero said but Fox and Falco intervened.
"Just keep us from crashing, blondy, both me and Foxy will handle Big Ugly here." Falco said making Zero feel a bit insulted.
"Just don't leave any bird crap on my windows, Tucan Sam." Zero said as Fox was communicating with something and motioned Falco to follow him.
"Let's go Falco our Arwings are ready, thankfully they're still functioning." Fox said as Falco nodded as the two opened the door and jumped out of the plane and landing into their spacecrafts known as Arwings as they began firing off at Ridley.
"Sounds like Big Ugly here wants to fight, well I say let's fire the lasers into that big mouth of his." Falco said as he began firing off at Ridley, meanwhile Zero's Plane had found itself hovering over a city in complete ruin.
"The city is in complete chaos, everyone, I appreciate the help,, you guys have friends to save and so do I, so let's put an end to this right now." Zero said as the others nodded, as the plane began to land safely in a area, that looked suspiciously calm; as Lucina, Robin, Shulk, Ness, and Issac followed Zero off the Plane, as the area seemed too quiet. "Don't be fooled by the silence, I have a feeling, we're not alone.
"I got to agree with you zero, i'm seeing a vision, that something is coming our way." Shulk said readying the Manado as Ness readied his Bat, Lucina, Robin, Issac, and Zero all readied their weapons, as some metallic footsteps could be heard.
"So you've brought all of the other versions of yourself, X I promise I will bring you back to your senses, I was freed from the same poison, and i know you can too." Zero said taking out his sword as X also looked at Zero along with Mega Man, Legends, Exe, Star Force, and right behind them was a young boy with spiky brown hair, wearing a Blue headband, a long white sleeved shirt, black shorts and socks, and orange sneakers.
"Well if it isn't the mighty Zero, I learned all about you, you were created by the Genius Dr. Wily but you betrayed him, you traitor, but I saw the true path, you see my father, Dr Hikari was murdered by Dr. Regal, and it's all the fault of my friends Maylu and Chaud, I got rid of them, all friends do is get in your way, of the truth, I also learned that X is your best friend, so after I was approached by that girl Emi and became infected with the Antilight, I learned about all of the different variations of Megaman, from my world, and in this world that Parallels mine, I was put in charge of controling them, including making my Net Navi exist outside of the Cyber World, and now there is nothing you can do to stop me."
"Lan Hikari, Grandson of Dr. Tadashi Hikari, the equivilant of Dr. Light; this isn't you, you have let the Antilight taint you, I broke free, and so can you, your friends did nothing to you, Dr. Regal murdered your father, and you've allowed the Antilight take full control over you." Zero said as Lan began to laugh.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH, the Antilight showed me the truth, and I will destroy anybody, that rejects the Antilight, I will take you down Zero." Lan said puling out a device and inserting a glowing dark chip into it, as Lan's eyes turned blood red as all of a sudden he along with Mega Man.Exe were merged together as one Human, Robt hybrid.
"So that is your crossfusion, anyways, if you want to fight, i'll give you one, but you will see that the Purelight will show you everything that you've done wrong, Hikari." Zero said as he and Lan traded sword attacks while all of the other Mega Men attacked the others but at the same time began to feel the control of the Antilight, slipping away from them.
"Now's our chance to cleanse them with the Purelight." Lucina ordered but not before Lan began firing shots at her, while Zero came in with a sword slash.
"Lucina use the Pure Light and save the other Mega Men now." Zero ordered, as Lan took his knee and hit Zero in the face before slashing at the Reploid with his Bamboo sword.
"No, those things will never blind me, ever again, I saw the true path to Darkness, and no one is going to stop the spread of Antilight." Lan said once again charging at Zero.
"Do you have any idea what you are doing; you've attacked your friends, and allowed the the Antilight to completely consume you after Dr. Regal murdered your Father; we may come from different timelines, but when the day comes, when those from two other worlds meet, those that meet those that are like them, expect them to be almost like them; you were like my friend X; however, X would never attack me or anybody else." Zero said as he began to slash at Lan taking the Crossfussed human Navi down. "I lost someone very important to me, Iris; I became consumed by Antilight, butt these allies of mine helped bring me to my senses, and I can to, and together, we can put a stop to the Antilight, and save the World, if you just let me cure you of that evil poison."
"NEVER." Lan screamed as he started blasting at Zero with nothing but Malice and Hate. As Lan was Blasting Lucina began casting the Purelight around the area, as a way to restore the others of their true selves.
"Power of the Purelight, activate and cleanse the evil taint of Antilight from these beings that stand in front of us." Lucina cried as the Purelight Gem began to glow and surround the area around the five Mega Men and hit Lan as well.
"NOOOOOOOOOO, I refuse to be blinded by this LIGHT." Lan cried a Zero took the Opportunity to attack Lan with his sword taking down the Net Op as the Mega Men all fell down to their knees as the Purelight began to shatter the remaining Antilight from their bodies, Afterwards everybody was unconscious as Zero approached X, while the others tried to awaken the rest of the Mega Men, than a blast came towards their direction as Samus Aran appeared holding her Arm Cannon in front of the others as she appeared to be tainted with Antilight.
"It's Samus, it appears she's also hit by Anti, whoa look out." Lucina cried as Ridley descended from the sky flapping it's wings as it landed right behind Samus. "Samus, listen to us, you are a Hero to the Galaxy, please break free, Ridley is your enemy, do you remember what he did to your Family?" Samus aimed her canon but soon fell to her knees as she was also starting to feel the same pain that others felt when Emi's control over the heroes had fallen.
"Lucina, restore Samus's power, myself and the others will take care of this Winged Freak." Zero said as he charged at Ridley as Ridley used it's wings to try to push Zero back. Robin and Shulk began Slashing at Ridley too with Ness using his PSI Powers on the Winged Alien Beast as Fox and Falco jumped on Samus to hold her down.
"Lucina, use the Purelight now." Fox cried as he and Falco held the corrupted Bounty Hunter down as Lucina began to chant the same spell as a beam of Purelight began to hit the Galactic Bounty Hunter as the taint of Antilight was expelled from her body, as the Purelight began to take over, Samus awoke completly unaware of what happened, but then she saw her Arch Enemy Ridley and began firing off at the Winged Alien, before Ridley took to the air and flew away.
"Ridley's getting away, I can't...." Shulk interrupted Samus as he saw a vision in his mind.
"Ridley is heading to Fimbulventr, all of our allies and enemies are gathering their, Bowser and Ganondorf have made their way inside Inferno and are trying to merge the LEft Eye and Inferno with the Antilight, we need to hurry and be sure the Right Eye and Paradiso becomes part of the Purelight, or it's Game Over, Daraku has transfomred into a Mortal Being but his God Form is able to merge anything and as a resulted he merged the two halves of the God of Chaos: Aesir, if Daraku returns to his God Form, he will be unstoppable and we're all done for, we need to get to Fimbulventr now and put an end to this nightmare once and for all.
"Bad news, my Plane's out of Fuel, great how are we going to get to Fimbulventr now?" Zero said as a wind began to blow and an engine was heard, as an Airship in the form of a Falcon appeared and began to land in front of the others, as Captain Falcon came out of the Ship to greet them.
"We don't have much time left, everyone, get on my ship, i'll fly us to Fimbulventr." Captain Falcon said as the others nodded.
"Despite what he did to my Father a while back, we have no choice but to board his ship, we need to hurry up and reach Fimbulventr, or else, it's all over." Lucina said as the others nodded; Zero than contacted a Navigator, as he helped X up.
"I need you to look over this Lan kid and all of the other Mega Men, I only want X to come with me, we're on our way with this dude in Spandex on his Airship to Fimbulventr to put an end to the Antilight, if any of them awaken can you send them to Fimbulventr?"
"You got it zero, good luck for now, and be careful."
"If I die, I just hope, I can be with Iris again, anyways i'm heading Out." Zero said ending his Transmission as he ran towards The Blue Falcon with the others already on Board, as Captain Falcon took control and took flight as high speeds towards Fimbulventr.
Bowser, Ganondorf, Zant, Majora, and The Shadow Queen stepped inside the World of the Damned, known as Inferno, which was made of nothing but fire, brimstone, and inhabited by nothing but Demons, who torment those that have caused sins on Earth.
"This is the place, now let's begin the merger." Majora said as he and the others began to make a chant as the shadows of Antilight began to swirl around the Realm of Inferno.
"Now Antilight Merge with This Dark World known as Inferno and expand the Antilight even more." The Shadow Queen said as they then heard a loud screech, as a shadowy, tall female figure then approached the group. "Hello Sheba." Shadow Queen said as she came face to face with the Ruler of Inferno.
"Shadow Queen, you dare bring that power here to merge it with your Master's, I will not allow that to happen." Queen Sheba said as she threw a Punch at the Shadow Queen before the Shadow Queen shot a Lightning Bolt at the Queen of the Underworld. Queen Sheba took a step back after the attack, then Daraku's Ozze began to pour in and latch itself onto Queen Sheba as The Antilight began to cover all of Inferno. "Now become one with Master Daraku." The Shadow Queen said as Mario, Link, Pit, Bayonetta made their way and saw in Horror as Inferno was being covered with Antilight.
"Oh no we're too late." Pit cried as they were seeing Inferno and even Queen Sheba.
"Queen Sheba is being merged with Daraku, we can't do anything because that Ooze and The Antilight is merging Inferno a lot faster, i'm afraid we half to go back to Fimbulventr, there is nothing more that we can do here." Palutena said as Bayonetta looked at Palutena with a upset expression.
"I'm sorry Cereza, but we half to get out of here now and return to Fimbulventr, Jeanne's soul is going to be merged with Daraku, and the only way we can save her now, if we defeat Daraku." Palutena said as Bayonetta had no choice but to follow the others out of Inferno as the Antilight began to fully Meerge with Inferno as they raced their way back up to the Summit of Fimbulventr. As they made their way to the Summit of Fimbulventr, they met with Meta-Knight, Marth, Ike, Red, and Lucas who were attacking the Ooze of Daraku's Monster Form that was merging Queen Shiba and Aesir together, as the five we're not having any luck trying to take down the Grotesque Ooze of Antilight, as Bayonetta began firing Bullets at it, with Mario using Fireballs, Link using the Master Sword, and Pit using his Arows to help out their struggling Allies as best as possible.
"I don't think this is going to be enough, we need more help." Pit cried as the Falcon Flyer arrived with Captain Falcon dropping and delivering a strong punch to the Ooze, with Zero, Robin, Lucina, and Shulk using their weapons to attack the Ooze, Ness would use his PSI Powers on Daraku's Ooze, and Fox and Falco fired their lasers at the Ooze too. then Samus appeared now wearing a Light suit began firing Light Beams at the Ooze as she arrived in her Gunship to Fimbulventr. Then Mewtwo who was previously in a fight with Daraku and still battered, returned to the Summit to also fend off the Ooze as Mewtwo looked to the sky, as the Antilight was starting to cover The Sun.
"We need to hurry and Merge the Purelight now, Ness, we need you to sing the Eight Melodies, the rest of you combine The Purelight with Paradiso's light and let's end this once and for all." Mewtwo said as Ness took out the Sound Stone and began to sing right from the recorded melody, as the others began to leave Purelight Crystals on the Summit and began uttering a chant.
"Take a melody Simple as can be Give it some words and Sweet harmony; Raise your voices All day long now Love grows strong now Sing a melody of love Oh love. Love is the answer Love is the glory Love is the beauty And the joy of spring. Love is the magic Love is the story Love is the melody We all can sing." Ness sang as the others began to activate the Purelight gems as a radiant shine of Purelight illuminated itself into the sky as the sky itself began. Howcer Daraku's Ooze tried to shatter the crystals and prevent the Purelight from fully merging. Until a Powerful Hyperbeam attack struck Daraku, as Arceus stood on Fimbulventr alongside Zeus who was also firing lightning at Daraku's Ooze.
"We'll keep the Ooze distracted merge the Purelight all together and give the Universe a chance to fight back." Zeus said as he used more of his lightning to strike Daraku's Ooze, as Mewtwo and the others all nodded as Bayonetta lifted the Right Eye into the air as the Light of Paradiso can be felt shining from above as the Purelight gems and even the light from Subtime al lbegan to find themselves merged into one as Permissable was also lending the light from Subtime to allow for the full merger as the entire Pureklight began to illuminate and stretch all the way to the sun; and now the Purelight was fully merged and now it along with the Antilight were now swirlled all over the Universe as this war, which started at the beginning of time, now continues in the modern era, that will determine the fate of the Universe.
Meanwhile Geno was in a fight with Daraku, with Daraku and Geno exchanging projectiles, punches, and kicks in midair, with each attack causing the other to fly int oa building or a mountain.
"Don't you sense it Daraku, the Purelight is reforming, it's game over now." Geno said firing several Bullets out of his arm only to get a Tendril wrapped around him and swung into several buildings of a ruined city.
"Inferno has now been merged with the Antilight, but I always have a back up plan." Daraku said as he created an a projectile of Antilight towards Geno, but the Star Guardian recovered and created a counterblast to cause an explosion the moment both attacks met as Geno and Daraku once again traded attacks, destroying the environment in the process.
"I have another idea, i'll lead the heroes of the Purelight, and you lead your Antilight Minions, and we'll both put it all on the line, whoever's left standing, either the Antilight, or the Purelight will be the winner of this war." Geno offered as a smile spread across Daraku's Evil face.
"So you want to put it all on the line in order to end this war, fine I accept, if it means destroying you and your friends, than the Antilight will rule over all." Daraku said as the Heroes of Purelight, and the Dwellers of The Antilight stood across from eachother, as both sides charged and engaged eachother in a wat like settig as Daraku and Geno were still at a standstill. "I have a special place for us to do battle, follow me." Daraku said as he began to take off rowards the sky and into Space as geno began to follow, as Space is self was also in a swirl of Antilight and Purelight.
"Is this where you want us to fight?" Geno asked as Darku had an evil smile and nodded as the two stood ready to fight.
