”Hey everyone, good to see you from the previous matches! We’re going to start everyone’s favorite part about the tournament, a fight showcase between experienced huntsman!” Hunter leans back as he starts to spin around on his chair. ”Now I don’t know about the rest of the combatants, but if I was in this showcase, I would do amazing. Anyhow, let me introduce the fine ladies that will kick off the huntsman bracket!” Hunter stops spinning as he goes to pick up his script, ”Both huntresses from Beacon Academy, we have Malina Nahualli and Siu Ceong! One seems to be an actual aircraft carrier, while the other just happens to have a mechanical tail! That’s cute I guess, unless that goes up her-” Before Hunter can suggest anything inappropriate, he gets interrupted by a swift mic cut.

”Hey Hunter, that’s very nice and all but this is a family friendly event! Now where were we? Oh yes! We have the boat lady who clearly watched too many Valish cartoons versus the mecha scorpion, both of which graduated from Beacon!”. Upon closer inspection of the script, Prim would continue by saying, ”Hmm...scorpio lady’s last name looks familiar. Oh, that’s right! We made fun of her sister with the hipster outfit! It would seem that fashion sense runs in the family then. Anyways, I won’t keep you all from this surely exciting first match of the Huntsman bracket!”

A large holographic image of a lottery machine appears on all sides of the arena, with two spinners. The spinners spun so quickly, making it nearly impossible to make out the passing words. It ticked through the options slower and slower until it finally stopped on Urban and Tundra.

The floor of the arena lowered and, in its place, arose two new floors. On Siu’s side, small dilapidated brick buildings rose from the ground with a cracked asphalt road running in between them. Providing very good cover, this side would prove useful for any with a hit & run style of combat. ”Ah yes, an average Valish street. How homely!” On Malina’s side, a semi-flat grassy plain covered in a light layer of snow would appear. But that’s not all! 10 defunct Atlesian knights would be scattered around the snowy plains. Set to self-destruct upon taking any damage, it would be in any combatant’s best interests to watch where you shoot, what you smack, and when you decide to use explosives! ”What a tough field! You can’t be a coward on this side, or your opponent will have an easy job!”

As the spinner finished its job and faded away, the doors on each side of the arena opened to signify the start of the match.

(A coin flip has decided that Siu will get the first post. The arena size is identical to that of the 1v1 arena in the show, however, it features scaled down biomes to fit the size. Good luck, and may the best combatant win.)

Against a currently teaching assistant... truly the best matchup she could've gotten, both ironically and unironically. If she wins this somehow, she is going to be so proud, and it will be a great proof that complete air supremacy is truly a tremendous edge, even on a very personal scale.

Now onto the match. Evaluating the battlefield as Siu Ceong entered the arena revealed a surprisingly favorable condition: Covers on my side and an open, hazardous plane on hers. Fairly easy to exploit. Opponent uses... a staff? Siu stared through her myopia-corrected googles, And her tail. Both look fairly close-ranged. Let's hope it keeps that way.

It was a shame that she can't wear her stylish, representative robe in front of the world but pragmatism comes first if she wanted to stand a chance against world-class huntsmen. And sure enough, her tunic is colored in navy which means she gets to hide well inside buildings. Which is pivotal to her battle plan.

Siu waved her left hand and in the wake of her hand, three fighters and one bomber started flying towards the other side of the field. Her right hand reciprocated and sent out three reconnaissance planes. Given the simple instruction of circling the battlefield, they should only require a regular glance like it is a CCTV. The combatants, on the other hand, need direct attention. Not all of it, but enough to reduce her option back at the ruins to simple tasks. Like placing down barricades on the roads.

From the perspective of an audience, four plane-shaped objects are flying toward Malina in a diamond formation, although the last one looks more fat and bigger.

"Assholes." Malina muttered under her breath as she stepped out on the field, hearing the soft crunch of snow beneath her boot. Looking around, she spotted a few of the defunct knights that the announcer had mentioned laying in the snow, mostly face down. It would do Malina good to stay away from those.

Glancing forward, Malina took in what she could of her opponent from this distance. A light outfit colored similarly enough to the buildings that it would be a problem if she tried to hide, a hefty looking gun of some sort, not much else. While Malina watched, her opponent waved her hand and sent out a set of small planes. Interesting. It wasn't hard to figure that her opponent could send out planes with her semblance. What they could do was another story. She was sure she'd find out eventually though.

Information was key in these sort of fights, if you knew more about your opponent than they did of you, you were already at an advantage. It stands to reason that misinformation was just as important then. Both of those points would be important in this fight. Malina wasn't great with or against long ranged opponents and she knew it. The best pla could be to get close and beat them down. Malina's opponent was clearly heavily focused with ranged attacking, though she might have a melee weapon, and seemed like they could reach the entire stage with their semblance's range, just judging by the fact that she had sent out the planes. She'd have to keep an eye on them, being ready to defend herself as soon as she saw them take any action toward her. For now, though, she could prepare her side.

Her staff had already been loaded with kinetic and ice dust, it usually was. The pair was an easy choice, combining mobility on her side with demobilising the enemy. She reached into her left satchel as she watched the planes approach. After running her fingers along several of th containers, she popped out on with a flame etched into the stopper and opened it.

Malina could feel her semblance becoming infused with fire dust. It was a strange sensation, sort of like tasting something mildly spicy but over your entire body. At the same time, the chamber in her stinger spun a full rotation before landing on one of the empty slots. It wasn't something she needed to do, but it was nice to loosen everything up at the start of the fight.

She glanced to her left toward one of the closer knights and stretched out her arm with an open palm. A blast of flame slammed into knight, 5 meters away. The resulting explosion melted and knocked away the surrounding snow, in addition to hiding the concussive force behind the flames. About 7 feet. Good to know.

Malina turned her attention back to Siu and the planes, which grew nearer by the second. She had as much info as she could get and the misinfo had, hopefully, gotten across. She lifted her staff and leveled the head toward her opponent. Within a moment, an ice spike formed and was shot outward, flying vaguely toward Siu's chest. As soon as the spike left her staff, she looked up toward the planes. Manticore, which had been laying flat against the snow before now, lifted up and shot three pins toward the lead plane.

Siu watched Malina uses her semblance on one of those defunct Atlesian knights to test out what do they do and the answer is an explosion. What is interesting though is that the explosion moved. That meant her flames packed a punch. And the fact that she then properly attacked her and the plane with her weapons meant she did it on purpose. A show of force? Anyway, an area punch is a pretty good point defense so there's that.

Standing on a broken pavement Siu made sure she ran well out of the way of the incoming projectile before snapping down two of the barricades on one side of the main street. With one side blocked off Siu ran towards the other. When it is done she would form an enclosure that walls off a few buildings allowing her to take shelter. Or not...

At the same time as Siu evaded the big ice spike which shattered on a building behind her, she commanded the lead fighter to dodge to the right and the bomber to the left. That's one unusually dense anti-aircraft barrier. Sticking close on her body might not work then. Highspeed flybys it is.

(Aerial attack theme: On the Dawn' Horizon)

Still running on the street and telegraphing her moves with her hands Siu approached from the right side of herself, strafing at Malina's left ribcage from three different angles. Left to right, right to left, middle fighter stays straight. That should make an asterisk threatening a sizable area of Malina's left flank. To follow up the bomber climbed and dropped a bomb at her current position incentivizing Malina to dodge to her right, although being guided means it was also a genuine attempt to deal damage. Repeat that for a few flybys and she can pressure her to go near one of the knights. Rinse and repeat and she got this in her bag.

Malina watched as both Siu and the planes dodged her attacks. Theybcan move independently of each other, annoying but good to know. She flipped her staff down and stuck the pincers into the snow as the planes approached her, making sure to grip tightly and wrap Manticore around it. With the swift pull of a trigger, a blast of kinetic force rocketed Malina several meters into the air and just before whatever the larger plane dropped made contact, she released two walls of concussive flame from her body.

One wave was sent downward arcing toward the planes that had planned to make strafing runs at her while the other shit directly up, impacting the bomb and sending the resulting explosion upward with it.

From the midst of the flame, Malina flipped her staff again and let off another series of bursts, sending her flying through the air toward the small, defunct settlement. Specifically, toward the roof of the nearest building.

Her opponent hadn't hidden, not yet, and she was sure if any of the planes survived the blast they'd be coming after her, but as long as she could get close she should be able to take back the advantage.

Siu was distraught by Malina's reaction. Of course not only does she had such a wide area denial move she also can reach high in the air with that staff of hers. Then she used her semblance. A dome of doom just swatted over Siu's three fighters and sent them flying towards the ground. Above her the dropped bomb got easily negated but luckily didn't affect the bomber.

This is just bad. With an attack that powerful and that wide there's no getting close with anything, and if she does if that's so long for them. But she had a pattern memorized for that.

With most of the integrity of the fighter just gone in a poof Siu had to push quite a bit just to avoid straight up crashing and By the time they're regaining altitude all of them is pretty much skidding on the snow. But crash they did not. With the power of critical existence failure on her side, the fighters started chasing Malina while firing from behind. The bomber on the other hand simply evaded the much more narrow burst and continues unharmed.

At the unblockaded end of the street Siu stood while sending another five fighters to intercept Malina head on. The pattern is simple: They fly straight forward and start steering away from Malina when they are about 10 meters away.

With more hand telegraphing Siu sent the intercepting fighters to start from 5 different inclinations while Malina is still airborne. Besides her are eight inactivated barricades and a box full of ammo. Running and stopping while steering is troublesome but hopefully the fighters can distract her well enough that she would go unnoticed hiding. As for the bomber, Siu simply commanded it to vaguely return to herself.

Malina watched as New planes began to fly from her opponent's position toward her but was quickly distracted by a sudden and sharp pain in her back as a stream of bullets began to hit their mark. With a swear under her breath she let go of the trigger as she quickly unraveled Manticore and frantically shot three pins backwards hoping to hit one of the planes or at least make them dodge out of the way.

As she fell to the ground, she spotted the Atlesian Knight just a moment to late as her feet crunched the snow beneath them and Manticore came down, smacking against the outstretched metal arm.

The resulting explosion felt like Malina had been washed over with flame and punched in the head as she flew forward toward the wall of the nearest building. She felt a bullet graze her arm as she sailed through the air and, through the pain and ringing in her head, she had the presence of mind to activate her semblance just before she hit the wall. An orb of flame expanded from Malina as if broke through the already weak wall, melting the snow around her and setting several wooden planks on and in the building ablaze.

As Malina tumbled to a stop inside of the building she quickly reached into her satchel and opened another bottle of dust, feeling it infuse into her aura. Through clenched teeth, she activated her semblance once more, this time only a single side of the orb. The hole in the wall that she had broken through was replaced by a rough, curved, rock wall. It wasn't a perfect fit, of course, but it was hopefully too small for the plans.

"Fuuuuuuck..." She groaned as she rubbed the back of her head. "Fuckin planes, fuckin robots, fuckin open field... " She made her way toward the wall she assumed was closest to her opponent and gripped her weapon tight. If she could just get close...

She couldn't waste time though, she didn't know what kind of damage that bomb dropping plane could do but she didn't want to find out by being buried in rubble. She quickly reloaded her staff with a new canister of kinetic dust, she had almost ran dry anyway, and left the old canister to sit on the floor of the building. With that done, she quickly placed her left palm against the wall and activated her semblance once more. This time, there was no replacement wall.

The wall exploded outward, sending with it dozens of large, pointed rocks sailing through the air and as the dust quickly cleared, Malina looked for her opponent.

Siu had to break the fire to dodge the incoming pins then watched Malina delve into a building getting hurt in the process. Siu immediately took that opportunity to run hiding behind the closest building, rejoining all the planes and circling them above the building.

When she saw the opening being closed via the recons Siu sent the bomber to the other side and sure enough, a hole busts out of the building and it doesn't take a huntsman to know that Malina is behind the dust kicked up. Taking the chance the bomber dropped two bombs on the weakened front of the building to collapse it forward onto where Malina hopefully walks out. Now is a good time to return the severely damaged fighters, so when Malina either dodged or burst out of the rubble she is going to send them to the left where Siu isn't hiding.
