Everyone was astonished by Wolvie’s appearance.
-Like, dude, it’s been sooo long, you know, since thou hath.....What art thou doing here anyway, dude? – Val Halan asked.
-Well, where do ya think I’d go after kickin’ the bucket, bub? Question is, what’s a Nordic God of Rock doin’ in Hell?
-Long story! Let’s just go and mess up this Makkaillo retard! – Buttercup interrupted.
-Wolvie, you may join our troops – Bubbles added. – Oh, and Buttercup?
-Yeah, Bubbles? – Buttercup replied.
Bubbles fists her to the ground.
-Don’t EVER shout at and insult your superior again, got it?! I’m leading the THU, and you obey ME!
-.....got it, Bubbles.... – Buttercup replied, barely standing up.
-What about Laraeth? – Junior asked.
-Leave him! Hurry up, ya gotta hide! – HellSpawn replied.
-No way! We’re not hiding anymore! – Junior replied.
And so the THU joins the war. Val Halan and Blossom are taking down the Azsheron guards, with Val’s mighty axe and Blossom’s ki blasts. Major Man and Minnie are taking on the Cozio higher devils, fighting them face-to-face. Bullet, Junior and Nergal Jr. are taking on the Griddle Lock Troopers*. Buttercup was randomly smashing demons and ghouls, and so was Wolverine. Mandy and Grim Sr. are fighting back-to-back. Jack assists Bubbles with his strikes. HellSpawn is being overrun, then slowly starts losing balance. Soon the whole field explodes, and demon lord Makkaillo rises underneath.
-Lucifer!!!! Enough of your pathetic troops! Bring yourself out and SURRENDER THE THRONE OF HELL!!!!!!!!
A little after that the whole sky above Hell turns creepily red, and then black. Suddenly, a massive force rises from above, an inexplicable demon whose description is impossible for any human comprehending. Very soon, but very slowly the demon changes to a tall, long-gray-haired anime-styled villain stereotype. It was Lucifer, in all his might and glory.
In the Netherrealm Hokochoo is watching the battle**
- They are so ignorant, my lord! – Penfold said. – Should we join the quarrel?
-No....let them have their fun, Ernest. – Hokochoo smirked and replied.
Back on the battlefield things were looking bad. Most of Lucifer’s forces were down for the count, and the THU was slowly losing their battling balance.
-Well, well, Lucifer! Let’s see how you bare with ME! – Makkaillo shouted and started charging power. But instead MM, Val Halan and HellSpawn rushed towards him. Makkaillo crushes them to the ground. MM and Val get severe injuries and HellSpawn hits Bullet, who dies seconds later, while HellSpawn himself disappears. His aura is floating around, and then gets taken by Lucifer, who inhales it through his chest. Everyone was shocked and speechless by this whole scene.
-Bullet.......B-Bullet.........BUUUUUULLEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!! – Bubbles cried out.
The other girls and the Grim siblings fall to the ground, saddened. An angel of Bullet is watching them from the Purgatory.
-You’re welcome to stay and watch them avenge you, or die trying. – the Keeper of the Purgatory told Bullet. Bullet gave him a sad look, and then turned her head back to the fight.
Makkaillo started off again.
- Do remember one thing, Lucifer. You and I are both from Hell, so we would be pretty much even. However, one can only win if sided with the light, a rule I despise, but that’s been around for countless MettaEons. In short, you need to be sided with a messenger of God. And you’ve just lost one. Laraeth!
While Makkaillo’s speech was in progress, Laraeth was slowly rising from the ground. His fangs were sharper, his pupils have gotten all black. His arms and torso bleeding. He picks up his shattered sword and rushes behind Lucifer, grabbing his neck with his right arm, and forcing what’s left of his sword onto Lucifer’s temple with his left arm.
-Hahahahaha! He betrayed you, Lucifer, just as he betrayed Heaven! And now he will be your demise!!!
Lucifer slowly turns his view to Laraeth, not changing his facial expression.
“Forgive me, Lord Lucifer” Laraeth whispered, and then slit Lucifer’s throat.
The whole army of Lord Lucifer felt uneasy and defeated. Makkaillo’s side celebrated and howls were heard all over the Valley of the Damned.
Makkaillo looked pleased and had a massively vicious laugh.
-Yes! Oh yes, Laraeth! Good boy. Now get me his darkened ring!
But instead, Laraeth drops sword, then lowers Lucifer’s body on the ground, and finally he puts his two fingers in the Lord’s wound and licks the blood of them.
-YOU @SSHOLE!!! – Makkaillo shouted.
Laraeth then shined with a dark aura, and spoke:
-Payback time, pussy!
Then he rushes straight to Makkaillo. They fight rapidly for about 20 minutes, but soon Laraeth touches ground.
-You’ll need a lot more blood from your Lord to beat me, angel! – Makkaillo smirked.
-No, he won’t...
***- Lucifer said. Then his sword started getting spikes, thorns and, above all, started to charge.
-No! I won’t let you reach that level of power, Lucifer! – Makkaillo yelled and flashed down towards Lucifer. He’s then stopped by our three girls, with tears in their eyes and anger in their souls.
-Not today, dickhole! – Bubbles shouted through her gripped teeth.
-You’ve killed Bullet, and we can never forgive you! – Blossom added with her voice shaking.
-It’s bitchfaces like you that give existence a bad name! You will die! – Buttercup added with tears in her eyes.
A series of powerful ki blasts were sent on to Makkaillo, and then Blossom finished it off with an Ice breath attack. However, Makkaillo was just slowed down a bit.
-Retarded mortal bitches! Do you honestly think THAT is enough to stop me? – he shouted.
-Our turn! – MM and Val Halan screamed together, but got stopped by Wolverine.
-Hey, what gives?! – MM shouted.
-Leave ‘em, ya clouds! Let ‘um get the bastard. It’s personal...
After Makkaillo rose himself up again, Grim Junior and MinnieMandy jumped up through the air with their scythes up, ready to give Makkaillo one last attack.
-Though shalth fall, betrayer! – Minnie shouted.
-Today you DIE, sucka! – Junior screamed.
As they both wield their scythes, he kneels to the ground.
-Now I’m pissed! – Makkaillo cried. – You will......what the....?!
At that very moment, Lucifer reaches full power, his sword gets fully charged, his facial expression still the same, yet his power growing immensely. He takes his sword in his both hands, he charges onto Makkaillo, his power reaches his maximum, and...
In a brief second, Makkaillo splits in two, his upper body falls down, and he is no more. As he stood crouched, Lucifer, with that SAME facial expression, stands up, looks down, and rises his arm up high. Makkaillo’s aura enters his palm, and he inhales it through his chest. Lucifer’s forces win. As a result of this victory, Lucifer’s sword shines blood red.
