KNIGHT VS KNIGHT: Round 1 - Link VS Meta Knight

by Mechanist Gamma

Mechanist Gamma Link and Meta Knight finally meet face to face in furious combat.
"Fight me."
Link turned around to find a squat, round creature staring at him. His foe, he presumed. The Knight of Hyrule held out his hand in a friendly gesture... which was met with a violent response. "We are here to fight, not to cling to childish things." he said. Suddenly, a voice blared over the stadium. "On the red side... LINK! And on the blue side... META KNIGHT!" Meta Knight drew his sword as Link raised his shield. "Have at you!" Meta Knight exclaimed.

Meta Knight pressed the offensive, but none of his attacks could penetrate the Hylian shield. Suddenly, Meta Knight noticed something in Link's other hand... a BOMB?! Meta Knight jumped back to dodge the explosive... only to be met with more! The battlefield became a minefield as explosions echoed across the battlefield. Only Meta Knight's speed and mobility kept him safe, but it did tire him out. He was so tired, in fact, that he barely dodged the giant ball which could have crushed him.

Link had equipped the Ball and Chain, and was fierce with it. Tossing it at Meta Knight repeatedly, he kept going... until the ball broke. Link was shocked, but he could still fight with other weapons. Taking the bow in hand, he fired a volley, but they wore all dodged. Meta Knight was approaching. Link shot a Fire Arrow, and the enchanted shaft missed it's mark. However, the Ice Arrow was more successful. Striking the tip of the shadow warrior's cape was enough to slow Meta Knight's movement through frost, and Link drew a Light Arrow. Before Meta Knight could dodge, Link fired the shining shaft.

Meta Knight was launched across the room. He was exhausted, but he knew Link was too. Then he saw Link ride a spinning contraption. A... Spinner? Meta Knight started to dash away. But somehow, Link was using the ridges on the wall to catch up with him. Meta Knight took a desperate gamble and threw himself at the spinner. As he expected, Link tumbled off, but started to flee. Meta Knight had dropped Galaxia, so he picked up his faithful blade. Now- Hold it, what was that heat?

The charge was complete, so Link used most of his remaining strength to use the Fire Rod. A beam of fire emerged, and when the dust cleared, he saw Meta Knight standing beside a huge black line of soot. From the looks of it, he had spent most of his energy on dodging the Fire Rod's beam. Link and Meta Knight stood up, both exhausted. "Let us finish this." Meta Knight said, dashing towards Link before starting to soar. Link also dashed forward, drawing his sword. The two lunged at each other.

"Hyaah!" "Hrah!"
Link and Meta Knight both landed on the ground. Both were struggling to stand up, and no one knew what would happen...

Until the mask cracked. "I fall... with honor." Meta Knight said, falling to the ground. Link walked over, a small gash in his left shoulder. Link embedded his sword in the ground, kneeled, and gave a salute. Then, he removed his blade and held it high in victory. "This match's winner is... LINK!!!" The crowd went wild, cheering his name. As Link gathered his stuff, the man on the screen earlier appeared on a new, bigger screen.

"Congratulations, Hero of Time!" the man said. "Do not worry about your opponent, he will be rested and restored to peak condition." As Meta Knight disappeared in an big sphere of light, Link breathed a sigh of relief. "As for you, collect your items and return into the sphere, which will first restore you and then will send you back to your room. Good luck with your next match, and climb up ever higher!" As the crowd cheered and the screen returned to black, a sphere of light appeared. His exit. As Link sheathed his sword and walked into the light, he couldn't help but wonder who his next challenger would be.

Link had been in his room for a day. He had run out of books, so he had tried out the Wii U. He found it very fun, and he was especially fond of two games specifically. Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and Hyrule Warriors, they were called. These games reminded him a lot of home. Suddenly, a sphere formed. He grabbed his stuff and entered the sphere.

Link was no longer surprised by the crowd... but he WAS surprised by the huge sword his foe was holding.

    @Mewtwofan259 No, no it's not. I'm happy with how this turned out, which is why I kept it in my spring cleaning of Written Works.

    Is this embarrasing?
