Dragon Ball Super: Groundbreaking - Chapter 100 - AraCypherElphieZA (2024)

Chapter Text

The late afternoon sun cast long shadows over the Son family's mountain home, its golden rays filtering through the thick canopy of trees surrounding the house. Gohan, having finished his rigorous training for the day, wandered into the woods, seeking a moment of peace and a break from the looming threat of the Androids. He was lost in thought, the pressure of the impending battle weighing heavily on his young shoulders.

As he strolled through the forest, Gohan's eyes were drawn to the vibrant green of the foliage around him. Nature had always been his refuge, a place where he could find solace amidst the chaos of his life. He walked slowly, his mind drifting, when something caught his attention. There, on a low-hanging branch, was a tiny caterpillar, inching its way along a leaf.

Gohan knelt down to get a closer look. The caterpillar was a brilliant shade of green, with small yellow stripes running down its back. Its tiny legs moved in a rhythmic pattern, and Gohan couldn't help but smile at the simplicity of its existence. He gently extended a finger, and to his delight, the caterpillar crawled onto it, tickling his skin with its tiny legs.

Of course, the caterpillar remained silent, but Gohan whimsically imagined it bearing a name like "Crawly." He chuckled softly at the thought, his burdens momentarily forgotten. He marveled at the creature's intricate form, the way its diminutive body moved with such purpose and determination. It seemed so fragile, yet so vibrantly alive.

Just then, Goku emerged from around a bend in the woods, his footsteps barely audible on the soft, leaf-strewn earth. He had sensed Gohan's energy and decided to check on his son, acutely aware of how the weight of their impending battles could burden even the strongest hearts. As he approached, Goku's face lit up with a warm, knowing smile.

"Gohan, what have you found there?" Goku asked, his eyes twinkling with playful curiosity as he observed his son with the caterpillar.

Gohan looked up, a wide grin spreading across his face. "Hey, Dad! I found this little guy exploring the forest. Isn't it amazing?"

Goku crouched beside Gohan, his gaze settling on the caterpillar with genuine interest. "Very amazing indeed. Nature never ceases to surprise us, does it?"

The caterpillar, seemingly undisturbed by the two Saiyans, continued its deliberate journey across Gohan's hand.

"It's so small, yet it's determined to keep moving forward," Gohan mused, his eyes fixed on the tiny creature.

Goku nodded thoughtfully. "Just like us, right? No matter the challenges we face, we keep moving forward."

They lingered there for a while, father and son, immersed in the quietude of the forest, watching the caterpillar until it eventually resumed its place among the leaves. The sun dipped lower in the sky, casting an ever-deepening glow over the forest, painting the world in hues of gold and crimson.

"You know, Gohan," Goku said softly, "sometimes it's the little things in life that remind us of what's truly important."

Gohan nodded, a newfound sense of peace settling over him. "Yeah, you're right, Dad. Right now, I'm just grateful for moments like these."

The weight of the moment pressed down on Gohan, his determination rekindled. He glanced at the familiar faces of his loved ones, their support and affection bolstering his spirit. Yet, he couldn't ignore the looming battle that would push them all to their limits. The burden of responsibility was heavy, but his love for them all fueled an unyielding resolve. The room was filled with a tense silence, broken only by the sound of their collective breaths.

As the group discussed their next steps, Gohan noticed Obuni standing off to the side, his eyes distant, as if lost in thought. Gohan knew Obuni, a warrior from Universe 10 who had fought valiantly in the Tournament of Power and understood the pain of loss and the gravity of their mission.

Leaving the group, Gohan approached Obuni. His voice was gentle, careful not to startle his pensive friend. "Obuni, you've been through so much. I can see it in your eyes. But remember, we're not alone in this journey."

Obuni turned, a faint smile appearing on his face. "Gohan," he acknowledged, his voice calm yet carrying a hint of sadness. "It's good to see you."

Gohan nodded, sitting down beside him. "I couldn't help but notice you seemed deep in thought. Is everything okay?" he asked, his voice filled with concern for his friend.

Obuni's gaze was fixed on the horizon, His mind filled with the memories of past battles and the weight of the ones yet to come. The manipulations of Omega had left scars on them all, scars that ran deep and were still healing. The burden of their worlds rested on their shoulders, a heavy weight that threatened to crush them.

"I know what you mean. Omega's revelations have shaken me to the core. But it's in moments like these that we need to find strength in each other."

"Exactly. In the Tournament of Power, I fought to protect my family, my universe. And though we were erased, 17’s wish brought us back. Knowing that all this was orchestrated for someone else's twisted purposes only fuels my determination to fight harder."

Gohan nodded, his eyes reflecting the same unyielding determination. "We're in this together, Obuni. The pain we've endured, the losses we've faced—they only serve to strengthen us. Omega may think he can break us, but he underestimates the power of our bonds."

Obuni smiled faintly, placing a hand on the Demi-Saiyan’s shoulder. "Thank you, Gohan. Your strength and resolve are inspiring. Let's ensure that Omega's machinations end here. For our families, for our universes, for the future."

Gohan returned Obuni's gesture with a firm nod, feeling renewed camaraderie and purpose. The shared understanding between them, the unyielding determination in their eyes, reinforced the strength of their collective resolve.

As they rejoined the group, Gohan could see the unwavering determination mirrored in each of their faces. They had been through so much, and the trials ahead would demand even more from them, but they were ready.

Goku clapped his hands together, breaking the contemplative silence. "Alright, everyone, let's come up with a solid plan. Omega and his allies are strong, but we've got the advantage of knowing what's at stake and the strength of our unity."

Whis, observing the group with his usual composed demeanor, nodded approvingly. "It's important to remember that strategy and cooperation will be key in this battle. Omega is not an opponent to be underestimated, but neither are you."

Vados, standing beside her brother, added, "We Angels will support you as much as we can without directly intervening. Our guidance can help tip the scales in your favor."

Gohan looked around at his friends and allies, feeling a surge of hope. "We need to understand Omega's strengths and weaknesses. He's manipulative and cunning, but every villain has a flaw. We need to find his weaknesses and exploit them. Only then, will we be able to destroy the core that keeps him together."

Piccolo, who had been listening intently, spoke up. "We know he uses fear and manipulation as tools. He thrives on chaos and uncertainty. If we remain united and focused, we can undermine his strategies."

Vegeta crossed his arms, his eyes narrowing in thought. "We need to divide and conquer. Omega's forces are formidable, but if we can isolate them, we stand a better chance. We should form teams, each with a specific target."

Goku nodded. "Good idea, Vegeta. We'll break into smaller groups, each with a mix of strengths and abilities. We can cover more ground and adapt to whatever Omega throws at us.”

Gohan's voice was filled with conviction as he spoke, his eyes locked with each of his friends and allies. “Omega wants to divide us, to weaken our bonds. But we won’t let him. Our strength lies in our unity, in our unwavering trust in each other. We will stand together, no matter what. I suggest we can take our existing teams and reevaluate them based on the skills we’ve seen each other display in our recent battles. We need to be as efficient and effective as possible.”

Krillin nodded thoughtfully. “That makes sense, Gohan. We should balance out our teams, making sure each one has a mix of offensive power, defensive capabilities, and strategic minds.”

Tien nodded in agreement. "If we’re going to win, we have to make sure we protect our most vulnerable."

"Right," Gohan agreed. "And communication will be crucial. We need to stay in constant contact with each other. Bulma, can you set up some sort of secure communication network for us?"

Bulma, who had been quietly taking notes, looked up and smiled. "Consider it done. I'll have portable communicators ready for everyone within the hour. They'll be encrypted and virtually untraceable."

"Thanks, Bulma," Gohan said, feeling a sense of relief wash over him. "Having reliable communication will be a huge advantage."

Bulma nodded, already pulling out her device to start working on the communicators. "I'll make sure they're robust enough to handle any interference Omega might try to throw at us."

Goku grinned, his usual optimism shining through. "This is going to be a tough fight, but I believe in all of you. We've come a long way together, and no matter what Omega throws at us, we can handle it."

Whis stepped forward, his staff glowing softly. "Now, about Omega's strengths and weaknesses. From our observations, he draws power from the negative emotions he incites. Anger, fear, and despair seem to fuel him. If we can stay calm and collected, we can limit his power."

Vados added, "Moreover, Omega's physical abilities are impressive, but his overconfidence is a flaw we can exploit. He underestimates the strength of unity and the bonds you share. This could be the key to defeating him."

Vegeta, always the strategic thinker, tapped his chin thoughtfully. "Then our goal should be to create distractions, play to his arrogance, and strike when he least expects it. If we can keep him off balance, he'll make mistakes."

Gohan agreed. "We'll need to set traps and create diversions. Keep him guessing about our next move. Piccolo, you have experience with tactical warfare. Any suggestions?"

Piccolo closed his eyes briefly, considering their options. "We'll need to use the terrain to our advantage. Setting up ambush points and using hit-and-run tactics could work. Also, we should take advantage of our ability to sense energy. If we can mask our power levels, we can surprise him."

Goku, ever eager, punched his palm. "Sounds like a solid plan. We should also train together to refine our teamwork. The better we can anticipate each other's moves, the more effective we'll be."

Gohan nodded in agreement with Goku's suggestion. "You're right, Dad. We should dedicate some time to joint training sessions. It'll help us synchronize our movements and strategies."

Piccolo stepped forward, his eyes scanning the group. "We should also consider the possibility of Omega having hidden allies or unexpected powers. We need to be prepared for anything."

"Good point, Piccolo," Vegeta acknowledged. "We can't afford to underestimate him or his forces. We should plan for worst-case scenarios and have contingencies in place."

Krillin raised his hand, a thoughtful expression on his face. "What about the Dragon Balls? Could we use them somehow to our advantage?"

Whis shook his head gently. "I'm afraid Omega's influence extends beyond the power of the Earth and Namekian Dragon Balls. We'll have to rely on our own strength and ingenuity for this battle."

Gohan's brow furrowed in concentration. "Then we'll need to focus on our individual strengths and how they can complement each other. Tien, your multi-form technique could be invaluable for creating distractions. Krillin, your Destructo Disk could be a game-changer if we can catch Omega off guard."

Tien and Krillin nodded, determination evident in their eyes.

"And let's not forget about fusion," Goku added enthusiastically. "Gogeta or Vegito could give us a significant power boost if needed."

Vegeta grunted in agreement, though his expression remained serious. "It's a viable option, but we shouldn't rely on it entirely. Fusion has its limitations, and Omega might be expecting it."

Gohan turned to Obuni, who had been listening intently. "Obuni, your unique fighting style and ability to create afterimages could be crucial in confusing Omega. Would you be willing to train with us and share your techniques?"

Obuni nodded solemnly. "Of course, Gohan. I'll do whatever I can to help."

Krillin nodded. “I also know a multiform technique that might help in creating more distractions. Between Tien's and mine, we could overwhelm Omega's senses for a brief moment."

Gohan smiled, feeling a surge of hope and determination. "Great. Let's integrate those techniques into our strategy. Everyone has something unique to bring to the table, and together, we can form a plan that Omega won't see coming."

“It’s worth considering that each multiform has less power than the original, and finding a way to increase our strength will be essential," Tien said.

"I agree," Krillin replied with a nod. "The ability to confuse Omega with multiple versions of ourselves is valuable, but we need to ensure we can follow it up with decisive strikes."

Gohan turned to Piccolo. "Piccolo, do you have any insights on how we can enhance our attacks after creating these distractions?"

The Namekian hummed and stroked his chin thoughtfully. "We could coordinate a series of synchronized attacks from different angles. If we time it right, we can overwhelm his defenses and create openings for our stronger attacks. Piccolo's suggestion sparked a series of nods around the group. Gohan's eyes lit up with understanding as he began to see the potential in this strategy.

"That's brilliant, Piccolo," Gohan said, his mind already racing with possibilities. "We could use the multiforms and afterimages as a smokescreen, then have our heavy hitters ready to strike from unexpected angles."

Vegeta crossed his arms, a smirk playing on his lips. "Hmph. It's not a bad idea. If we can keep Omega guessing, we might be able to land some significant blows."

Goku's excitement was palpable as he chimed in, "Yeah! And we could mix it up even more. Some of us could use energy attacks while others go in for close combat. It'll keep him off balance!"

Krillin nodded enthusiastically. "Right! And those of us with special techniques like the Solar Flare could use them strategically to create even more openings."

Tien added, "We should also consider using our ki-sensing abilities to our advantage. If we can mask our power levels effectively, we could set up surprise attacks."

Gohan's eyes darted from one person to another as ideas continued to flow. "These are all great suggestions. We need to drill these combinations and make sure we can execute them flawlessly under pressure."

Whis, who had been quietly observing, spoke up. "Remember, Omega is likely to have countermeasures for many of your known techniques. The key will be in how you combine and innovate with what you have."

Vados nodded in agreement. "Indeed. Unpredictability will be your greatest asset. The more you can surprise Omega, the better your chances of success."

Bulma, who had been working on her device, looked up. "I've got an idea. What if I create some kind of holographic projector? We could use it to create even more realistic decoys to confuse Omega."

Gohan's eyes widened at the suggestion. "That's fantastic, Bulma! It could give us an extra edge, especially if we combine it with our own techniques."

Piccolo nodded approvingly. "We should also consider the battlefield itself. If we can choose or manipulate the terrain to our advantage, it could give us additional tactical options."

"Good point," Vegeta agreed. "We should scout potential locations and plan accordingly. Different environments could favor different strategies."

Gohan turned to Whis and Vados, his eyes reflecting the weight of their task. "Can you help us identify potential battlefields that would give us the upper hand?"

Whis nodded, his ethereal staff beginning to glow with a soft, celestial light. The air shimmered with anticipation as he conjured up vivid visions of various locations. "There are numerous places we could consider. Rocky terrains with jagged cliffs, dense forests teeming with life, or areas strewn with natural obstacles could all provide us with strategic advantages."

Vados' serene voice chimed in, her presence exuding an aura of calm strength. "We can also create artificial environments that simulate a plethora of conditions, allowing you to train and prepare for an array of scenarios."

Bulma, her hands now free from her initial work on the communicators, looked up with fierce determination. "I'll also work on some new equipment to aid us in battle. Perhaps something to enhance our energy levels or provide temporary shields."

Gohan smiled warmly at her, his gratitude evident. "Thank you, Bulma. Every bit of support is invaluable."

With a graceful gesture, Whis waved his staff, creating a glowing map that hovered in the air, illuminating potential battlefields. "These locations offer different advantages. Some are more secluded, perfect for ambushes, while others are fraught with natural hazards that could be used strategically."

Gohan studied the shimmering map, his mind racing with possibilities. "We should train in each of these environments to understand how best to use them to our advantage. Let's schedule regular sessions in different locations, focusing on both offense and defense."

Vegeta's stern face softened slightly as he nodded. "Agreed. And we need to ensure that everyone is proficient in utilizing the terrain. But we have to be wary. The last time we were there, Moro imbued himself into the planet and turned the very ground against us. We need to anticipate similar tactics and prepare countermeasures."

"We also need to consider our stamina,” offered Krillin. “These battles could drag on, and we'll need to conserve our energy while making every move count."

The group absorbed Krillin's wise words, recognizing the importance of endurance in their upcoming struggle against Omega. Each member of the team, despite their vast power, had limits that needed careful management.

Gohan took a deep breath, his eyes scanning the faces of his friends and allies. "Krillin's right. We'll need to pace ourselves and maintain our energy levels throughout the battle. It's crucial that we rotate who takes the lead in attacks to prevent any one person from exhausting themselves too quickly. I also suggest we should gather the rest of the Multiverse Council to get everyone on the same page. Coordination across universes will be essential if we want to stand a chance against Omega."

Goku nodded, his enthusiasm tempered by a rare moment of seriousness. "Good idea, Gohan. We've got allies out there who are just as strong and just as determined as we are. Bringing them into the fold could tip the scales in our favor."

Gohan continued, "We should split into teams for training and scouting, focusing on developing new strategies and honing our techniques. Let's ensure that each team has a balanced mix of abilities."

Vegeta added, "We need to conduct reconnaissance on Omega's forces. Knowing our enemy is half the battle. Let's gather intelligence on his strengths, weaknesses, and any hidden allies he might have."

Piccolo stepped forward, his mind already working through the logistics. "I can handle organizing the training sessions and scouting missions. We'll need to be efficient and make the most of our time."

Whis and Vados exchanged a glance before Whis spoke. "We can assist in monitoring Omega's movements and providing real-time updates. Our abilities allow us to observe without being detected."

Gohan turned to Bulma. "How long will it take to get the communicators and any additional equipment ready?"

Bulma looked up from her device with a confident smile. "Give me a couple of days. I'll have everything ready, and I'll make sure they're durable enough to withstand the intensity of battle."

Gohan nodded, feeling a renewed sense of purpose. "Alright, everyone. Let's get to work. We have a lot to do and not much time to do it. We'll train hard, scout diligently, and stay focused. Omega may be powerful, but he underestimates the strength of our unity and our resolve. We'll show him that no matter what he throws at us, we will stand together and fight for our future."
