Chapter 4: The Battle of Three Evils
In the Reefside Hotel, Jayden and the others were in Lala Land, and despite Mike's loud snoring everyone were sleeping pretty well. Luna was at the foot of Jayden's bed when she cracked open her one eye. She stretched as she padded to the balcony, a low growl erupted from her muzzle, low enough she didn't wake the sleeping Samurai Rangers. She sniffed the air as her yellow eyes scanned the city before her eyes focused on the direction of Reefside High.
'Okay, it's there, the Darkness Symbol Power and my new master, now to wake the others.' She thought. She trotted back into the hotel, eyeing the rangers with disgust; she trotted up to Mike, eyeing the sleeping green ranger in anger.
"Why did this generation have to be so foolish?" She grumbled as she bit Mike. The green ranger shot up in pain.
"OW!" Mike shouted in pain, trying to shake Luna off.
"GET HER OFF! OW OW OW!" Mike shouted in pain as he finally shook Luna off. Luna spat out a glob of blood as the other rangers stared at her.
"Why did you bite Mike?" Emily accused the wolf as the other's looked at her.
'She's dangerous, how was the original black ranger able to tame her?' Emily thought nervously.
"I have no need to explain myself Yellow Ranger, and it's active." She said coldly
"You mean the Darkness symbol power?" Mia asked as Emily bandaged the wound on Mike's leg.
'Did she have to bite me so hard?' Mike groaned as Emily finished wrapping his leg.
"Yes," Luna said irritably, "Red Ranger, I can lead us there."
'Why does she only refer to us by our ranger colors?' Jayden thought as he nodded. Kevin walked up to him as they left the room.
"Jayden, can we trust her, she did just bite Mike." Kevin whispered.
"Think of it this way Kevin, she hasn't been active in battle, her master was turned into a nighlok and now she has a chance to be an active zord again, I think she's more nervous than anything." Mia spoke up.
Jayden nodded, half agreeing with Mia.
'But still, Kevin's right, is she trustworthy?' Jayden thought as suddenly a loud growl erupted. Everyone turned to Antonio, who was blushing at the moment.
"Um…maybe we can look for him or her…after some lunch?" Antonio offered to everyone's amusement and the wolf's ire.
Back with Dane and Tommy, they never stopped glaring at each other, each in their own fighting stances. Dane charged at Tommy, hand out in an open palm thrust, Tommy grabbed the younger man's hand but backed up quick and let go as Dane's foot came up towards his head to kick the veteran ranger. Tommy swiped his leg at the darkness possessed boy's ankles, sweeping Dane's legs out from under him and knocked him on to the ground. Dane's hands shot down and stopped his fall and he shot his legs up, nailing Tommy in the chest. Tommy stumbled back as Dane stood up, stretching, rubbing the back of his legs as Tommy was rubbing his own chest.
'Okay, where the hell did that power come from?' Tommy thought.
'Guess the old man still has some fight in him?' Dane thought.
While Tommy was more experienced and had better strategy, Dane was younger and had better stamina and the Darkness symbol power was only adding to it. This time Tommy charged, he stopped half way through and shoved his fist forward. Dane moved his hands up to block but it was a fake out. Suddenly, Tommy shoved his foot into Dane's stomach and landed and uppercut on his jaw. Dane groaned in pain as he sailed back, only for Tommy to grab him and force him into a headlock. He looked towards his Dino Thunder bracelet.
'Thank you Sentinel Knight.' He thought as he spoke into it, glad everyone had dispersed in fear.
"Trent! Open an invisiporital! Now!" Tommy shouted into his restored dino gem.
The moment Tommy said that, a green and black spiraling portal opened in front of him, Tommy jumped in while Dane was shouted cuss words at him.
'Now to see what's wrong with him.' Tommy thought as they landed at the beach.
The two grunted as the portal let them off at the beach, Trent came in not too much longer.
"Dr. O, what's going on?" Trent asked as Dane and Tommy separated, Dane groaned as a black aura surrounded him.
"I think we're going to find out." Tommy said nervously, his eyes trained on Dane.
He and Trent nodded as they raised their Dino Morphers, their powers restored by the Sentinel Knight when Kira helped the Operation Overdrive rangers.
'I don't like the looks of this.' Tommy thought as Dane let out a scream, the black aura covered him as the darkness symbol power took over again, morphing him into the Black Samurai Ranger.
"Crap." Tommy and Trent said at the same time.
"Well well, I get two victims instead of one, you two will be good practice until I fight and destroy the damn samurai rangers." The Black Samurai Ranger said darkly with an evil laugh at the end.
'Not good, he's gone evil on us, now I know how Dr. O, Kira and the others felt when I was evil.' Trent thought as he turned to Dr. O, his morpher already out.
The Samurai Ranger let out a chuckle, it wasn't a good natured one wither. It was one of those evil ones that were stereotypical to all bad guys
"Yes, go on and morph, it'll make this fight last longer and I might get a decent challenge." He cackled out.
With a nod to each other, Tommy and Trent held their morphers out.
"Dino Thunder, Power Up!" Tommy shouted as he inserted the key into his morpher and twisted it.
"White Ranger, Dino Power!" Trent called out as he pushed a button on his morpher.
"Dino Power!" The two shouted in the morphing sequence.
"No holding back?" Trent asked.
"No holding back." Tommy told him.
'Sorry guys,' he thought, thinking of his students and how he swore to protect their son, 'but I can't hold back against Dane. I need to sub do him so I can see what's wrong.' Tommy thought sadly.
"SUPER DINO MODE!" They shouted as spikes grew out on their ranger forms. Trent and Tommy charged at the Black Samurai Ranger, White Drago Sword and Brachio Staff out. The Samurai Ranger let out a war yell as he charged at them, Dark Daito unsheathed. The weapons clashed with a loud clang as the three rangers separated.
'Damn it, he's getting stronger.' Tommy thought, having felt the power between their scuffle in the schoolyard and now. Trent just grunted, running at the Samurai Ranger.
"Dane snap out of it!" Trent shouted as the Drago Sword clashed with the Daito. Trent stabbed the Drago sword forward as the Black Samurai Ranger ducked. His Dark Daito went upwards towards the White Dino Rangers neck, only for the Black Dino Rangers Brachio staff to block it. Trent thrusts the blade on his hand towards the Black Samurai Ranger but he caught Trent's fist.
'He caught my fist!' Trent thought in surprise as the Black Samurai freed his sword, striking him in the stomach. Sparks flew off of Trent's suit as he jumped back to avoid getting more damage. Tommy chose to attack the Black Samurai now, their weapons met and the came to a standstill.
"Come on Dane, wake up!" Tommy shouted.
Suddenly, the Black Samurai began to chuckle again, it was low at first, and then began to rise to a high pitch maniacal cackle.
'What the fuck's going on!' Tommy thought as the Samurai Ranger threw him off as the black aura returned.
"Sorry old man!" He shouted, laughing, "But I'm not that weakling! He's here alright, but not in control!"
'Just like when I was control by my Dino gem.' Trent thought as he stood up, standing next to Tommy.
"Then who are you?" Trent asked.
"I am the Black Samurai Ranger, I am the symbol power of darkness, and I am your…DEATH!" He shouted as he slid a disc onto his sword with a wolf's head on it.
'No!' The dino rangers thought as Trent slashed at the air, forming lasers that morphed into arrows.
"Laser Arrows! Fire!" Trent shouted at the arrows hit the Black Samurai at blinding speeds. He grunted in pain as sparks flew off of his suit, he growled and looked up, only to see Trent speeding towards him, his speed unmatched, second only to his old teammate Connor with his Dino gem powers.
'That's it, a little closer.' The Black Samurai thought darkly.
"TRENT NO!" Tommy shouted, realizing the Black Samurai had a plan, but it was too late. Trent rushed back and forth, slashing at the Black Samurai. Spark flew off of the Samurai Ranger's uniform, when Trent stopped…he was gone. The Samurai ranger disappeared from view.
'Where did he go?' Trent thought as a figure began to emerge from his shadow.
"TRENT LOOK OUT!" Tommy shouted as he ran towards the White Ranger. Trent turned, only to feel the Dark Daito strike along his back on a diagonal. He slashed a few times; sparks flew off of Trent's suit as he shouted in pain.
"Trent!" Tommy shouted and ran towards the white ranger. The Black Samurai shoved Trent into Tommy and spun his disc. Tommy was forced to stop and caught Trent; it was enough of a distraction for the Samurai.
"Dark Daito: Spin One: Black Out Blitz!" He shouted as his sword was covered in the black aura and swung it at the Dino Rangers. Trent and Tommy put their weapons up in defense but the attack engulfed them.
'What now?' Tommy thought as Trent struggled to stand. They noticed they weren't being attack by the darkness; they put their swords up in defense. The Dino Thunder Rangers knew they held back, a mistake that was costing them. Trent suddenly shouted in pain and sparks flew off of his suit.
"Trent!" Tommy called to him only to get struck as well. At speeds that could compete with Connor's super speed, the Dino Rangers were stuck multiple times, the Black Samurai's dark cackling echoed in their minds, what seemed like eternity…didn't even last one minute. As the dark veil faded, sparks and electricity surrounded Tommy and Trent as they fell back, an explosion followed, forcing them to demorph. The Black Samurai cackled a little more as he approached the downed Dino Rangers. Trent and Tommy struggled to stand; burns, bruises, cuts, and bleeding wounds covered them.
'Come on Dane, stop.' Tommy thought as he got to his knees.
'Stop it bro, don't.' Trent thought as he used a nearby tree to try and pull himself up.
The Black Samurai quickly approached Tommy and Trent, the Dark Daito rose, the sun reflected off the black surface eerily. His sword quickly approached Tommy's skull, intended to take the more experienced ranger out first.
"Die!" The Black Samurai shouted. Tommy closed his eyes, experiencing fear for the first time since he had been retired as a ranger.
'No…I failed, I'm sorry everyone.' Tommy thought and closed his eyes, only for a loud clang to ring out. His eyes cracked open, he noticed there was another Power Ranger standing in front of him. This ranger had the same outfit design as the Black Samurai, meaning he was a samurai ranger, the lack of skirt and grunting his voice proved the gender. The big notice is that his outfit was red with the kanji for fire on his helmet; he knew the one who blocked his strike was Jayden Shiba. Tommy let out a breath of relief as Jayden's Spin Sword forced the Dark Daito away.
"Well well well, it's an honor to meet the newest Red Samurai Ranger." The Black Samurai said sarcastically with a mock bow.
Jayden glared at the Black Samurai through his helmet, he could feel the sadistic smile on the Black Samurai's face. Jayden's Spin Sword rested with its blade on his shoulder while the Black Samurai's Dark Daito was held at his side, pointed face down at the ground. Tommy and Trent finally got to their feet, panting heavily as Trent held his shoulder in pain.
'I hope the others can catch up, a mooger attack was not what we needed.' Jayden thought as he pointed his sword at the Black Samurai, who in turn did the same thing.
'Yes…just like cows to the slaughter.' The Black Samurai thought as he took a stance.
It was going to be a brutal battle, one that would try to outclass the other. In ancient times, the Red and Black Samurai were the best of friends. Now in modern times, they face each other as the worst of enemies. Who will come out on top? The battle begins.
Cliffhanger for all! Next Chapter: Jayden and Dane battle, the Black Samurai in control of Dane's body. But the corruption of the symbol power makes it harder for Jayden to claim victory. Is it over for the Shiba clan leader, or will he have some super help? And what of Tommy and Trent, can they fight their young friend/family member? Find out next time.
