It all began
shortly after Ginjo and K-9 had been slain. Just as the humans were
beginning to rebuild, one of the observatories caught sight of an
enormous meteor the diameter of a large city, spiralling down to
crush Earth. The ki fighters of the world, acting as one, rose to
destroy the meteor, but it was fruitless ... not even the strongest
fighters could even phase the beast of a planetoid. Eventually, it
crashed in Dragon Forest, within sight of Korin's Tower. Strangely,
such a crash should have destroyed the whole planet, or at least
caused the world to be so contaminated with dust that nothing could
exist. However, instead of crashing with tremendous force, it simply
hovered for a moment, and then slowly sank into the ground, as if
the ground were water. The Earth swallowed the meteor whole, leaving
nothing to show its presence besides a few crushed trees.
mysterious event began a long era of peace. For eight months,
nothing happened to threaten the world. Life, for once, went on.
Little did many notice that the life force of the world was slowly
ebbing away. Plants were withering, crops were dying, animals were
becoming more and more belligerent and violent towards people.
months after the meteor landed, the chaos began. A small town was
attacked ... by a horde of animals. Though many ki fighters
attempted to protect the town, the weaker and unwary humans were
slowly slaughtered. During the fight, a strange, black orb appeared,
which sucked the souls of the dying into itself. It seemed to be
invincible, and upon being attacked, the animals responded and
attacked the ki fighters. Finally, the animals turned on one
another, until the entire town became one great blood bath, with
only the ki fighters left to stand for it. The orb had fled and
disappeared into the ground, much as the meteor had done.
another attack ensued, much like the first. This time, there were
even more animals, including insects, and the orb appeared again.
This time, instead of just being a ball floating in air, it had
become the belly of a great, wooden, tree-like golem. While the
populace of the town was slaughtered and their souls milked from
them, the golem dealt with the ki fighters soundly, taking very
little damage from their attacks. Once the population had been
killed, the orb seemed to be sated, as it exploded its golem husk at
the ki fighters as a final offensive before zipping off and
disappearing into the ground again.
there, the orb seemed to get smarter. It began attacking random
townships across the world, without any pattern in particular,
striking with great force and suddenness and even organization, such
that the towns were completely sacked and drained of souls before a
single ki fighter could arrive. More and more research was being
done, and just when it seemed that the scientific community was
beginning to understand the black orb phenomenon, its attacks began
to grow deadly close to West Capital.
military force was mobilized. Ki fighters from around the world
West Capital for the imminent attack. Tanks, helicopters, and
fighting jets, along with millions of infantry from the Imperial
Army, lined the outward border of the great city. Even Capsule
Corporation was getting into the act, providing high tech plant and
animal exterminating devices. Finally, the hordes came... the
animals all came forth, everything from dinosaurs to mosquitoes, and
even the mythical Wyverns and Griffins were seen along the front...
the army, now called the Anti-Nature Army, numbered in the billions.
The ki fighters fought long and hard, and this time, though the
golem came stronger than ever, the good prevailed. It all ended, at
last, when a mysterious wizard (Atyhtan Ator, pictured at left),
bearing a scythe, appeared and attacked the golem with a special
spell which used its own power against it, and caused such a huge
explosion that a quarter of the entire city was destroyed in the
process. The orb endured, however, and once again retreated into the
ground. Much of the Imperial Army was killed and destroyed, but
almost all of West City's civilian populace survived.
week later, science had made a breakthrough. Portions of the orb had
been captured as it tried to escape, and the orb's substance was
analyzed. After thorough research on the behalf of Capsule
Corporation's rival, Growing Thoughts, Inc., the source of the
attacks was discovered. The orb had been tracked to the locaton
where the meteor had crashed just 8 months prior, in the thick of
Dragon Forest. Where the meteor had crashed, there was now a massive
tree that had somehow escaped everyone's notice, which was the most
black, wretched, and ugly tree that one could imagine. It's branches
were spindly and tightly woven and full of thorns, shaped like a
great globe, holding who knows what. It had sprouted endless seas of
vines that enwrapped everything, and were slowly making their way up
the attacks on the tree began. The Imperial Army regrouped and
attacked again, enforced by the ki fighters, who fought further in.
It was a great battle raging on for the entire day. However, by the
end of the day, the tree began to hum and glow oddly... and just as
the golem had been felled, a new horror was unleashed.
the glowing and humming stopped, a terrific force ripped outward
from the evil tree, uprooting every tree for ten miles all around,
and toppling even Korin Tower. Every man, woman and animal in the
area was tossed so far that often when they landed, they had no idea
where they were. Many did not survive the fall. Even the remains of
the golem had been tossed into the sea. What could have caused such
a powerful force?
questions were answered as the ki fighters regrouped and attacked
again. With the reinforcement of the Imperial Army's greatest
weapon, a colossal robot, the ki fighters took on the tree
and the golem. It seemed that they would win, when suddenly, from
the globe of the tree, burst a most frightening, horrible, massive
black dragon. Wielding extreme speed and endurance, along with his
powerful spells, the dragon swept up and nearly finished many of the
ki fighters. All would be lost, if not for Ator, who, despite a
crippled state he had received from earlier reconnaissance on the
dragon, summoned up the last ounces of his strength he could and
made one of the dragons own deadly attacks turn on its caster. The
dragon died instantly, and with the combined attack of a Destructo
Disk from Jade and a powerful blast from the Imperial Army's robot,
a great, acidic gas exploded from the belly of the corpse, quickly
sweeping outward to consume the valley in a gaping cloud of death.
Luckily, nobody was killed.
now, the entire Korin valley was filled with acidic death.
Surrounded by hills and an inward-blowing wind, the acid would not
dissipate, and still the tree remained. It seemed like the terror
would only continue, unless something was done about the sulfuric
were solved when the great celestial warrior, Shin Strife (read the
below miniplot for more information), stepped forward to placate
himself of the
Earth's people's mistrust, sacrificing his mortal body to finish
off, once and for all, the Anti-Nature's Seed Tree. With
unprecedented force, the warrior ripped forth a beam of force that
completely destroyed the tree, and with the force of its
destruction, cleared the acid from the area. When it had all passed,
the souls and bodies of the absorbed were released, and Shin Strife
was no more.
there was still more to come. With the tree destroyed, there was
still a hole in the ground, that seemed to go infinitely far into
the ground. What of the meteor? Had it spawned this terror? If so,
where was it now? The suspicions of the ki fighters were revealed
when someone kicked a rock into the hole, and the rock hit a
Crimson decided to put an end to the threat once and for all.
Powering up into Super Saiyan, he let down his signature attack,
Crimson Dawn, upon the hole, and opened up a crater nearly a mile
deep, where it struck and collided with the meteor's force field.
The beam beared down hard on the forcefield, but, alas, it did not
even budge. The hole still remained at the bottom of the crater,
protected by the forcefield. That was when the mastermind behind the
entire crisis showed his face.
called himself Zann, and seemed like nothing more than a regular
person, wearing excessively royal clothing and armor. He acted very
silly and made a mockery of Crimson and his friend, Shao Lung, as
they tried to attack him. Zann treated it all like it was some kind
of game, referring to the ki fighters and the golem as pieces.
fighters were forcibly removed from the area. Shortly later, a set
of four strange looking statues were seen to be guarding the hole.
On the return of an amnesiac and strangely chronologically reversed
Crimson and his new adoptive mother, Violet, several ki fighters,
including Crimson were shrugged off by powerful blasts of psionic
force, from the newly animated statues. However, they seemed to
actually goad Violet into fighting one of them without the use of
psionics, and the woman won, despite her relative weakness to the
was not long afterward when Mr. Popo, retainer to the Earth's Kami,
made an address to the entire world, requesting that all ki fighters
capable of flight to report to the lookout. There was a large,
disorganized discussion about how to deal with Zann. It had been
revealed that he has been building up power, possibly to lay huge
strikes on each of the world's major cities. The nature of Zann was
revealed in that he actually was the player of a game with real
implications. It was explained how Earth was a rare player, in that
the pieces (the people) have a mind of their own and do not have to
follow the instructions of their player (the Kami, Oracle).
Mr. Popo brought out the rule book, everyone was thoroughly confused
by its elaborate, and redundant language. It was something like
reading a very legal contract. It would take years to read over the
entire text. However, Raimei, the martial arts master of Shao Lung,
entered the man's mind and had him flip to a particular part of a
text. The text gave him an idea, and a new plan was launched from
the headquarters of the Kame House.
Roshi-ni, who was now the owner and proprietor of the Kame House,
and who claims to be the grandson of the fabled Mutenroshi (the
turtle hermit), had been training a student of magic, Mike Jones
Jr., for some time. Mike was extremely intelligent for his very
youthful age, and Raimei felt that he would be best suited for the
task of defeating Zann, using a fluke in his transportation spell
that allowed him to go into even magically shielded places, if done
correctly. Using what time he had available, Mike studied his head
off, until at last he felt ready. Then, the golems were four, and
attacked all the harder.
was chaos in North, West, East, and South Cities. In each, there was
a new Anti-Nature Seed Tree, and each tree with its own golem. Some
cities had greater success than others, defeating the golem several
times, only to watch him respawn each time, good as new. The
metropoli were being smashed into the ground at an alarming rate.
Even Crimson's superior strength could not save the day so easily
when destruction was occurring in so many places on the world at
Raimei's plan was unhatched. He transported Mike Jr. to a particular
place above an expanse of ocean, and used his psionic powers to
create a massive fright in his mind, causing him to instantly
teleport inside Zann's base. Though it didn't work the first time,
they tried again, and this time caught Zann completely off guard.
Mike was in the Battle Chamber. There would be no ejecting him, now.
battle ensued for quite some time, both wizards gaining unheard of
powers, more than any ki fighter on the planet. They heaved massive
objects about the room, shot thousands of projectiles, and created
supermagnets. They warped and twisted reality to suit their own
needs, and when it all came down to a show of power, the two wizards
created unprecedented power streams that they fired at eachother,
colliding with a force like a nuclear bomb, and when it was all said
and done, Mike had barely survived, and Zann no longer had any clue
who he was, or what he was doing there. Mike was declared the
winner, and as the boy took Zann's Staff of Lazarus, the meteoric
base completely powered down, becoming little more than a well built
hole in the ground.
the battle finished, the statues, golems, and Anti-Nature trees all
crumbled into dust, blowing into the wind. Earth was liberated, at

IN THIS SAGA
Shin Strife, the Kami and
Guru of a distant planet called Taeria, and revered celestial
warrior, has been searching for the past several decades for the
fabled Third Plague of Taeria, who would bring destruction to Taeria
itself. According to prophecy, all signs point to a Taerian
necromancer named Miyamoto Shugen as the core of this plague.
Finally, Shin has located the one last place where Miyamoto could
still reside -- Earth.
the guru's investigation of Earth, and learns that it is a prime
destination for the exodus of the Taerians, their own planet being
corrupted and polluted beyond repair. First, however, he knew that
the Third Plague had to be dealt with. Shin found himself in a
tangle when he encountered his arch-rival, the demon lord Trenobel,
razing a village to the ground. When the ki fighters arrived to
protect the town, Trenobel quickly made Shin out to be his master,
framing him for the mass murder of the entire town. The guru's
reputation had been tarnished.
Shin Strife continued his search. Through his way, he managed to
eradicate a small city accidentally, when he abruptly evolved into a
legendary Ascended Taerian, completely levelling everything for 20
miles, and leaving only the demigod himself in an extremely confused
state. He wandered on chaotic whims until he arrived at South City,
when he could no longer restrain his emotion, and released an
enormous amount of power, devastating the urban sprawl into little
more than rubble. This time, the ki fighters responded, and a great
fight ensued, during which both sides took considerable damage. The
damaged but victorious guru fled in horror of the pain he had
Hunted by ki
fighters and the remnants of the Imperial Army, Shin Strife decides
that the only way to clear his name and the name of the people he
stands for to the people of Earth is to sacrifice himself for the
cause that troubled them most ... the Anti-Nature Seed Tree. As
previously stated during the main saga's description, Shin Strife
plunged into the sulfuric gases that surrounded the tree and
obliterated it, casting his legendary sword into the ocean and
submitting his mortal body to the dissolving effects of the cloud of
death. Shin's celestial spirit still resides, now, with the Kais,
waiting until his time comes again.
what of Taeria? What of the Third Plague? Miyamoto still lives on
Earth, and as long as he lives, the Taerians have something to fear.
What will they think of Earth and its inhabitants when they hear of
their Kami's defeat? Only time will tell...
Majin Loki was the weaker
cousin to Majin Buu, who ages ago had been defeated by powerful ki
forces. Following in his stead, Loki sacked dozens of small
villages, eating their people as candy and moving on, constantly
growing in power and consuming the ki fighters who were not strong enough
to withold the beast's wrath. One of the most titanic struggles
occurred in East City, as Loki proceeded to make beaten playthings
out of the helpless ki fighters.
Deciding that the time for
play was over, Loki travelled to North City, and in the span of 15
minutes, devoured every single person in the entire city, levelled
the buildings, and formed the debris into a statue in his own
Humanity quaked, as two of
their five cities were crushed as if they were nothing. Were the
humans doomed? It all seemed bleak, even the strongest Saiyans from
Sarada-shi proving no match to the monster, until Loki fell in with
Kim, the sister of Jade. The childish Kim made Loki his first
friend, and for some time he did not devestate the Human race
Then, one dark day, Loki's
evil side split from his good side. The two had a battle of epic
proportions, ending with one Planet Killer attack that destroyed
Evil Loki instantly. After the attack, the Good Loki was nowhere to
be seen, and has yet to be seen since.
Some time after the meteor
landed, a sect of refugee Saiyans landed upon Earth, seeking a
planet to create a magnificent city of their own without fear of
persecution for their refusal to help pirate planets.
At first, the Saiyans were
greeted warmly, though their customs and behaviors were crude and
distasteful to their Human hosts. With time, though, the strife
between the two races grew, as ungrateful Saiyans became
troublemakers and one particular sensationalist journalist provoked
the humans' fear for the muscleheaded men. The cake was frosted when
Lord Kyabetsu, head of House Akanasu, ordered several small attacks
against Human villages outside of King Damion's will. Deciding to
preempt an attack on their proud city, the mad King took two other
lords out to East Capital and leveled a large portion of it, though
defending ki forces kept them busy. King Damion was ejected from
power and from the city in general by Kabu, who became the next
By this time, the Human
Salvation Front, a group dedicated to the purging of the Earth of
all sentients not human, had been mobilized. Equipped with powerful
technology that allowed their guns to equal the Saiyans' ki
strength, the two forces finally met in an all-out slaughter outside
of Sarada-shi. The thousands of human troops were squished like
bugs, their eyes unable to follow the superior Saiyan speed.
However, the alien army was no stranger to casualties, either. As the
fighting drew down to a few ki fighters and their Saiyan Lord
counterparts, King Kabu and the new governor of Central Capital arrived
and called a cease to the battle. The human troops and their allies
were shamed for following the fanciful, sensationalist words of a
man whose only fuel was hatred, and who knew only violence and not
King Kabu made a public
announcement shortly later, calling for peace with the humans, the
ejection of Ex-lord Kyabetsu and his followers from the city, and a
submission of half of each Lord and Lady's energy to a crystal which
would keep the gravity generator in their city maintained for many
years to come.
Since then, the Saiyans of
Sarada-shi and the Humans of Earth have lived in relative harmony,
the Saiyans agreeing to repair the damage they had done to the
cities, plus other damage that had occurred in the past.
