"Doctor..." Rock said slowly, it had been silent ever since Rush was mushed into the wall. "How much longer into you can get that capsule in my systems?"
Cossack powered off the machine. "I-I
I need something sharp. Now."
Cossack looked around fast. Maybe a screwdriver or the back of a hammer-
Rock broke off a piece of what remained of his helmet. "Use this. What are you going to do?"
"Im going to cut off a piece of the tube, and shot the energy in you manually."
"What? That's insane! No way that can work."
"Can you keep him talking for the next 10 minutes?"
"Funny story about him talking, you see,"
Guts Man slowly made his way down the hall. Savoring every moment of it.
NOWHERE TO RUN,
NOWHERE TO HIDE!
He was coming. They were out of options.
"Do it Cossack."
Cossack cut open the tube, and stuffed it in Rock's Buster. "Whatever you do, do not let it,"
Cossack re-activated the machine.
Rock could feel energy going into his buster.
Rock aimed his buster at the door, waiting for Guts Man to come through
K Guts Man, let's end this.
He powered it up. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
He could see Guts Man shadow, getting bigger,
Then, it started to shrink back...
Rock thought he heard the sound of Guts Man rockets...
Wait ,what are you..
Guts Man saw his prey, and launched straight at him.
Rock flew back from the explosion, the light blinding his eyes, the blast ringing in his ears.
The room began shake back and forth...
he was passing out...
Not like this...
SHHHLLIP! SHHHLLIP! SHHHLLIP!
Hey, cut it out..
heh heh, that tickles...
ROCK! Please come back to be!
Your talking! Please, don't go back to the light?
"Yeah. Hey boy." Rock sat up, giving his dog a hug. "I thought you were out after Guts Man crushed you between the wall!
Rock looked over. A large pile of rubble replaced the wall.
I gotta make sure...
Scrambling over to the rubble, Rock began to pull rocks off the pile.
until he came across Guts Man's body.
The Robot Master had been turned over on his stomach, his waist being exposed to the light.
OKAY! SO IF HIS ASS IS STILL HERE, THEN THE REST OF HIS BODY-
Rock began shoveling it off of him, until he began to work if off his chest...
it was gone. A huge hole was all that was left.
Rock was hesitant to touch him, keeping Bomb Man in mind.
Okay Rock. Rush got his laser ready. I got ya covered.
Removing enough rock, Rock finally unearthed Guts Man's head.
Turning him over, Rock saw his face. Mouth open, shocked expression on his face, forever still.
Rock scanned his body, just to make sure.
Even with his regenerative power, Guts Man wasn't immortal.
He had taken too much damage in one shot to recover fast enough to survive.
GUTS MAN DESTROYED
Okay, time to get his IC chip.
Reaching inside Guts Man, Rock retrieved his IC chip, which he had to get a little bit of Block off of.
And now, his Power! I could sure use a heal right now.
Touching Guts Man's arm. He hoped his copy weapon ability would even WORK in the shape he was in.
WEAPON COPY SYSTEM ACTIVATE
WEAPON: SUPER ARM
Rock felt the tingle in his brain again. Except for a tingle, it was a sharp pain. As much as it hurt, he wasn't surprised, he was running on E and still going 60 a minute.
His screen flashed brown this time, and then back to normal.
HYPER BOMB ABILITY IS READY FOR USE
Rock collapsed to the floor, exhausted. After a brutal fight, he had finally beaten the biggest, the toughest, and strongest Robot Master.
It could only get better from here,
BWOP! BWOP! BWOP!
Oh yeah, the light show. Guess I better consider it a reward for winning.
As he continued to watch Guts Man disintegrate, he remembered something.
Rush perked his ears up, as if he had just remembered Cossack too. He sprung up and looked around.
" ! Where are you?" Rock looked around the lab,
after coming through a few piles of looser rubble, Rock gave up hope.
The explosion must've vaporized him...
Rock hung his head low. Thank you Mr. Cossack, for saving my life...
"Rock! Rock can u hear me?"
Rock turned to Rush. The dog's radio communicator was on. It was Roll.
"Yeah Roll, I'm still online. Where are you?"
"I have a ship! I'm coming to pick you up! There is a helipad nearby! I'll be there soon!"
"Roger, see you later!" Rock turned to his dog. "Party's over Rush, let get out of here."
Rock and Rush made their way down the hall, and climbed up the stairs.
Rock was still thinking about Cossack. His family is going to be waiting for him, and he's never gonna come.
As they got up to the helipad, Rock raidoed Roll back. "Were here Roll, waiting for you."
"Okay, just need to make a quick stop and grab-
Yeah Rush, I head Master too! We gotta get out of here were sitting ducks.
Rock dashed to the door, pulled down the handle,
Elec Man was right there.
"Hey there, Mega Bitch."
Rock stepped back. No way he could possibly survive a fight in this condition.
"Haven't seen Guts Man around here. You, you wouldn't have anything to do with that would you?" Elec Man approached him. "Where's Guts Man?" He said, trying to maintain his composure.
"WHERE IS HE?" He roared, blasting Rock with a streak of electricity.
Rock flew back, landing with a thud on the ground
"EYACGHK!" He found himself gasping in pain. His outer body had been ripped open, exposing his circuits.
"SAY IT!" Elec Man yelled, getting ready to fire another blast. "SAY WHAT YOU DID! SAY WHAT YOU DID TO GUTS MAN!"
"i...ughya...i.." rock said weakly, getting to his feet.
"i killed him."
"EXCATLY!" Elec Man punched him in the face. Rock swung around into...
Fire Man. "DIE YOU TWERP!" FWOOSH FWOOSH!
Fire Man's blasts knock Mega Man to the ground. He couldn't move. The flames licked at his body.
Rush fell right next to him. Out of his eyes, he saw Ice Man and Cut Man, both with a burning desire on his face.
"This time," Elec Man said. "THERE IS NO GETTING AWAY!" He summoned electricity on both of his hands.
C'mon Roll, please.
Fire Man powered his cannons.
This-This is it?
Ice Man created a blade using his breath.
Only 2 out of 6?
Cut Man whipped out his scissors.
Damn it... I should have kept better track of time.
And get out with Cossack when I had the chance.
"ITS OVER MEGA MAN!" Elec Man said. "NOW DIE!"
BEEP! Elec Man paused and looked up.
BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!
The other Masters sensed it too.
"WHAT NOW?" Elec Man said.
Looking up at the sky, Rock saw two beings in the distance coming toward them.
