Match 31: Saxton Hale vs Destroyah
With a scream, the Heavy Weapons Guy collapsed, his chest caved inward. Saxton Hale had once more killed all of the RED team, the team believing they could stop him with a rush of Scouts and Heavies in Well. Of course, they were wrong.
However, RED had another trick up their sleeve.
An Engineer and Soldier watched the battle unfold from a far off building, clearly not pleased that their main rush failed. The Soldier faced the Engineer.
"Is it time?"
Engineer pulled out a remote and pressed the large red button in the center. In a waterway, a clear container opens up, revealing several small creatures...
Saxton Hale jumped into one of the buildings, where he found the remaining Heavy by the control point that stood over a trainway. Saxton Hale jumped at the heavy, landing down before the terrified Russian.
"Are you really the strongest man on your team?"
The heavy was too terrified to answer as he backed away, before turning to run. Saxton ran after him, soon reaching the human as he prepared to deliever the blow that could instantly kill a human...
Only for a loud howl to distract him.
As Saxton turned to face the source, the Heavy smirked at the release of the secret weapon before running off to the nearest Engineer nest.
Saxton Hale watched on as Destroyah landed down before him. The being made up of a colony of microscopic organisms let out a demonic shriek, letting Saxton know that this was going to be the fight of his life. Saxton clenched his fists tight as he stared down Destroyah.
"It's just you, me, and my bare hands!"
*cue epic battle theme
Saxton Hale and Destroyah charged at each other, the two ending up meeting on the control point. The titans locked hands with each other and pushed against one other, each trying to bring down the other. Saxton Hale strained hard to push back his opponent, but Destroyah didn't seem to be trying. The living Oxygen Destroyer flung Saxton off the floor, the Australian falling down upon the railroad tracks. Destroyah landed down before Saxton, seemingly laughing at his opponent. Angered, Saxton grabbed Destroyah by his head and slammed him facefirst into the ground. Again and again he slammed him down, until he jumped up and slammed his elbow down upon Destroyah.
Saxton sat atop Destroyah and began beating away at his face. Destroyah struggled underneath Saxton's blows, until he caught Saxton's fist and tossed him off. Saxton jumped back to his feet, before he charged at Destroyah. The crustacean, however, slammed his fist upon Saxton's head, causing him to fall facefirst into the ground. Destroyah kicked Saxton in the face, flipping him onto his back. Destroyah's tail shot up, before it repeatedly stabbed at Saxton. The human kept swatting the tail away, until the pincers stabbed into Saxton's flesh, lifting the Australian up and tossing him away. Saxton tumbled across the ground, but managed to regain his footing. Saxton's rage boiled as he glared at Destroyah. Time to release that rage.
A blast of supersonic energy erupted from Saxton Hale, nailing Destroyah in the back and sending him flying forward, slamming facefirst into the ground and sliding forward for a brief moment, a spiderweb of cracks spreading from the impact area. Saxton pounced on Destroyah and beat at his head, leaving cracks in his wake. Furious, Destroyah grabbed Saxton's head and flung him off, allowing the colony to rise. Destroyah then took to the air, flying around Saxton and hitting him with hurricane winds thanks to his great speed. Saxton jumped up and nailed Destroyah in the head with a powerful fist, sending Destroyah slamming into the ground.
Destroyah rose back to his feet, rage boiling throughout the crustacean's making up the killer. Why wouldn't this human just die already? Destroyah's frill flashed purple before a Micro-Oxygen beam launched from his maw, striking Saxton in his right shoulder. Saxton clenched his teeth as a hated feeling kicked in.
This pain was great and burning as the Micro-Oxygen beam dissolved at the flesh. Saxton bellowed with rage and charged, Destroyah doing the same. The two collided, Destroyah stabbing his claws into Saxton's chest. Destroyah seemed to grin as blood started to ooze from the wound, only for Saxton to grab Destroyah's arm, pull the claws out, and swing Destroyah to the ground. Destroyah got back up, only to receive a fist to the face, throwing his head to the left, before another blow connected with his chest, sending him back several steps. Saxton then lunged forward and tackled Destroyah to the ground.
As Saxton prepared to cave in Destroyah's head with a powerful enough punch, Destroyah kicked Saxton hard in the stomach, knocking the wind out from the Australian man as he staggered back. Destroyah rose, his horn glowing orange, before he swung his Horn Katana downwards, slicing Saxton from his left shoulder to his right thigh. Saxton jumped back, screaming in pain as the blade left a cauterized gash. Destroyah let out a demonic laugh at Saxton's pain, approaching the human to finish this. Saxton stared at the gash before he glared at Destroyah.
"You picked a fight with the wrong man!"
Saxton Hale charged, but Destroyah took to the air, avoiding the charge, before he turned and fired his Micro-Oxygen beam at Saxton, striking him in the back and making him shout in pain as his flesh dissolved. Saxton leapt at Destroyah, but the crustacean manuevered out of the way, before firing another Micro-Oxygen beam, though Saxton managed to jump out of the way.
By this point, Saxton had ran from the building out to the tracks, where he stood upon another control point and waited for Destroyah.
Destroyah flew at Saxton, but the Australian jumped over the beast, and as the killer sped by, Saxton landed on his back. Destroyah struggled to throw off Saxton, but the man punched his fists into Destroyah's flesh and began tearing off chunks of armor. Destroyah howled not in pain, but in absolute rage. The Precambrian terror swung his tail up, stabbing into Saxton's right eye and bringing out a cry of agony and rage. Saxton grabbed the tail and snapped it in half, green blood bursting out, before Destroyah grabbed Saxton and flung him into one of the train carts.
Destroyah was seething with rage by this point. Not only had Saxton Hale refused to die, but he harmed him. The living Oxygen Destroyer. Destroyah then noticed the nearby waterway. Perhaps he couldn't kill Saxton on land, but in the water...
Saxton Hale, ignoring the loss of his right eye, lunged at Destroyah, who slammed into him, the two flying through the air, viciously beating and tearing at each other with everything they had. Finally the fighting pair fell into the waterway, sinking to the bottom.
Saxton let loose with another sonic blast, slamming Destroyah into the ground. Saxton swung his fist at the still crustacean, only for Destroyah's entire body to be engulfed in a white fog just as Saxton's fist collided. Saxton looked around, wondering what had happened. For a moment, there was nothing. Had he won? Well if he did, then that freak deserved-
Then came the pain.
It was a pain like no other he ever felt. He could feel every fiber, every molecule, every atom of his body dissolving. The reason was simple: Destroyah did not die, but rather had broken down to his microscopic army and was now swarming Saxton.
Soon, a skeleton was all that remained.
Destroyah burst from the water, landing down on the pavement fully healed. Then, Destroyah let out a haunting cackle. He hadn't had this much fun since he fought Godzilla. His rage forgotten and satisfied, Destroyah took to the air and flew off, back to the waterway where he was released.
