Match 7: Biollante vs. Dagahra
Banner: Christian Salabert

The waters around Birth Island begin to turn a deep crimson red as thousands of bariums float to the surface, heralding the arrival of the bane of the depths, Dagahra. The toxic beast emerges from the now polluted water around Birth Island and waddles towards the interior.

In the sky above, something stirs, as if reacting to the toxic beast that now befouls the purity of Birth Island. Dagahra becomes suddenly aware of a golden flashing in the sky, and it raises its grotesque head to examine the strange occurrence. As he does, the sky opens up and begins to rain golden dust in a gentle, hypnotic cloud, causing the corrupter to stop in his tracks and stare at the lovely sight. Purring slightly, Dagahra is entranced as the beautiful golden snowflakes gently tumble down from the heavens. Then, the powder eventually vanishes as mysteriously as it appeared. Dagahra stares in bewilderment as the enchanting display comes to an end.

The tranquility of the scene is suddenly shattered as the earth begins to tremble, as though some great creature were moving below the ground. Dagahra roars in surprise as the rumbling turns into shaking, as long, snaking fissures open under his feet. Then, he hears a moaning sound as the fissures breaks open and a long, thorny tendril emerges form the earth. Dagahra begins to retreat towards the safety of the ocean, but when he turns to run; he finds the vines bind his legs. Roaring out in rage, Dagahra tries to wrestle free of the bindings. In the midst of his struggle, he hears another great surge from under the ground. Turning his head, he watches in mute shock as the ground literally explodes outward and a mammoth head emerges. Biollante, goddess of the earth, has arrived.

Biollante roars out a challenge to the toxic worm she has entrapped in her tendrils, demanding that it leave this pure place and never return. Dagahra roars defiantly, refusing to leave. Then, opening his mouth, the toxic one fires a crimson and ebony beam of light at the tendrils binding him. The beam severs the vines, releasing a hissing spray of burning green fluid into the air.

Biollante growls in anger and sends another swarm of tendrils after the corrupted one as he retreats towards the ocean. Her tendrils emerge from the ground, clamping their jaws onto the corrupt one's legs. Biollante gives a purr of pleasure as Dagahra is dragged to the ground and hauled back towards her.

Dagahra, deciding to take the offensive, takes to the air and yanks free of the choking tendrils the earth goddess tried to bind him with. Turning, he flies back towards Biollante, roaring in anger. Then, he opens his mouth and fires his Poisonous Jet Stream Shockwave at his opponent. The bolt of energy rakes her across the top of her enormous alligator like head, searing the scaly leaves. Biollante snarls in pain, but otherwise does not seem to be adversely affected by the attack. Dagahra, confused, fires another beam, as well as a volley of Bariums from his shoulder cannons. The beam rakes across Biollante's body, but once again, fails to have any discernable impact on her. Yet, when the bariums strike, the small patches where they make contact seem to shrivel a bit.

Biollante, not wanting to take another hit form the burning particles shot by the toxic one, lashes out at him with her spiked tendrils. Seeking to take him out of the sky, Biollante strikes at him with a group of decoy tendrils, seeking to divert the toxic one into her spear tipped trap.

Dagahra, seeing Biollante's chocking tendrils approaching, banks hard. The flailing lashes sail past him, but the sense of victory is short lived as the toxic one feels a burning, stabbing pain bursts though his right wing. As he turns his head to see what has happened, he is violently tugged out of the sky as Biollante viciously pulls her tendril in. Dagahra crashes into the ground with a sickening thud, blood erupting from his nostrils. As he lifts his head, he looks over at the spot where he felt the stabbing pain. With a groan of despair, he realizes that the earth goddess has torn a hole in his right wing, disabling his ability to fly. Yet, he doesn't completely lose hope, as he notices that his shoulder cannon is still intact, which means he can still use his barium's to attack Biollante. Regaining his footing, Dagahra rises and turns to face the earth goddess.

Biollante, seeing the toxic one rise, begins to advance on him. More tendrils emerge from the earth around the toxic one. The toxic one responds to the attack by firing his energy beam at the vines, severing them. Yet, Biollante refuses to let him escape, and continues to send more vines after the toxic one.

Dagahra, surrounded on all sides by the vines, and seeing Biollante advancing, decides to try and play his trump card. Crouching low on the ground, he beings to spin in place. As he does, a maelstrom begins to form around his twirling form. Soon the cyclone fully engulfs him, and he opens his shoulder cannons, releasing a stream of bariums into the tempest. Lifting off the ground, he charges towards Biollante.

Biollante, seeing the toxic one forming a corrupted cyclone of poison and acid, opens her maw. As Dagahra closes it, energy arcs towards the center of her mouth. Then, when the tempest is almost within striking range, she vomits forth a stream of her own acidic blood. Directing the stream into the cyclone, Biollante drenches the toxic one and his foul spawn in her purifying sap. Dagahra falls from his cyclone, corroding bariums falling all around him. Biollante begins to advance on her prone foe. When she comes within reach, she lowers her jaw and bites down on the toxic ones head, driving the hundreds of sword-like teeth that line her maw into the body of the foul one.

Suddenly awake, Dagahra realizes where he is, and how close he is to losing the fight. Realizing that he may only have one more shot at defeating the earth goddess, Dagahra opens his shoulder cannons and fires a volley of bariums at the earth goddess. His toxic pets strike his foe, who gives off a satisfying cry of pain as her grip lessens. Digging his heels into the ground, Dagahra pulls as hard as he can, tearing himself free of the earth goddess's maw. Yet, the cost is high, as he loses a good deal of flesh on the bladed jaws of Biollante. Screaming out in pain, Dagahra turns and begins to retreat towards the ocean once again.

Biollante watches as the toxic one begins to retreat. Refusing to allow the vile beast to escape, Biollante sends several dozen mouthed tendrils through the ground, which emerge from bellow the toxic one, clamping onto him and pinning him to the soil. As the toxic one roars out in pain, Biollante decides to land the finishing blow. Underground, her spiked tendrils meet up and braid themselves into a single, massive spike. Summoning all of her strength, Biollante drives the spike upward, impaling the toxic one on its tip, and lifting him into the air, while still pulling down with the tendrils she grabbed him with. Dagahra screams in pain as he is skewered on Biollante's tendril, his foul blood falling to the ground in a grisly shower. Dagahra stops moving, and Biollante releases her grip. Then, snapping her tendril, flings the corpse into the ocean. As the water engulfs the body of its tormentor, Biollante looks on with detached pleasure. As the last traces of Dagahra sink beneath the waves, Biollante dissolves into her golden pollen form, and floats up into the sky.
