After being imprisoned in the Canterlot Castle Dungeons for 1500 years, Kuuga and N-Daguva-Zeba were finally set free during Discord's escape. Now it is time to show the powers of the Light and Dark Stag Beetles!

  • ...

Chases and Introductions!


That scream of pure horror echoed throughout Canterlot Castle as terrified Kuuga ran for his life as he was pursued by an angry Twilight Sparkle shooting magic blasts at him. You see, right after Celestia arrived with Kuuga and Daguva they came face-to-face with the Mane Six. When Twilight Sparkle saw the unconscious Sunset Shimmer, well... You could say she jumped to conclusions and proceeded to chase after Kuuga and Daguva with red-hot fury.

"Come back here!" Twilight yelled as she grabbed a sword from a nearby soldier much to his surprise as he watched her threw it like a skilled javelin thrower, "You're going to pay for what you have done to Sunset Shimmer!"

"GAH!" Kuuga yelped as he managed to catch the sword before tossing it away, "I already told you for the last ten minutes! I didn't knock her out!"

"Like I'm going to believe that!" Twilight yelled as he threw another sword at him. This time the sword was caught by Daguva before he fling it to the wall!

"Does she always gets this angry when there's family involved?" Daguva wondered.

"Don't ask me! I'm not the one who likes to read lots of books displaying us as villains! How are we going to explain our reason why we let the Sirens escape when she is this mad?!" Kuuga yelled in annoyance.


"Oh come on! A frying pan?! Where the heck did this come from?!" Kuuga yelled in irritation as he held the mentioned object in this hands.

Daguva tapped Kuuga's shoulder and gestured for him to look to his right. The red warrior turned his head and his eye lens widened comically when he saw, to his horror, Pinkie Pie running at the same speed he and Daguva are going.

"Hey there! My name is Pinkamena Diane Pie, but you can call me Pinkie Pie for short! Sorry I smacked you in the head with a frying pan! I was busy making a special feast for a special party for you two and I thought-" Pinkie Pie rambled joyfully.

"NOT HER!!!!" Kuuga screamed as he immediately tripled his running speed and left a dustcloud impression of himself and the frying pan in the process.

"What's with him?" Pinkie Pie asked to Daguva in slight confusion.

"Trust me, there are some things he can't stand and one of them is nonstop talking!" Daguva explained as he continued to avoid the blasts of magic from Twilight Sparkle.

Pinkie could only stare at him in confusion with a question mark over her head before it turned into a light bulb when she realized something.

"Hey! He still has my frying pan! I still need it for that special omelette!" Pinkie Pie noted as she quickly ran into the direction Kuuga went to retrieve her cooking utensil. Daguva could only raise an eyebrow as he watched Pinkie leave a dust cloud trail as he ran past him.

"That is the strangest thing I've ever seen since my reawakening..." Daguva admitted before he ducked to avoid another sword thrown by Twilight, "Hopefully, Kuuga has better luck with Pinkie than me with her!"

Sunset groaned as she woke up to a massive headache and she found out she is not in the castle dungeons anymore, but instead she is inside a bedroom filled with many cushions.

"What?" She groaned as she pushed herself off the comfortable bed, "Where am I?"

The doors opened as Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity walked into the bedroom with a tray of tea, cookies, and daffodil sandwiches.

"Hey there Sunset! Glad you're finally up!" Applejack said as she gave Sunset a daffodil sandwich on a plate.

"What happened?" Sunset inquired as she bit into her sandwich.

"Princess Celestia teleported here with you in her arms completely sound asleep, and she brought along with the legendary Kuuga and N-Daguva-Zeba!" Rarity explained as she sipped from her cup of tea, "After that, Twilight suddenly turned flaming white and started to chase after them!"

"Hah! Some warriors!" Rainbow Dash scoffed as she placed her hooves on a nearby cushion while she laced her fingers behind her neck, "Those guys look like they would fight a mouse rather than a lion! What are the chances of one of them barging in here?"

Right after she finished her statement, Kuuga, still holding the frying pan, suddenly slammed through the doors before he closed them and started to nail wooden boards and fasten chains and a lock on them. He panted in exhaustion and fear as he leaned against the door.

"Um... are you okay?" Fluttershy asked in a soft voice, but to a high strung Kuuga it was more like a trumpet playing through a bullhorn.

"AAH!" Kuuga yelped as he leaped to the ceiling and clung on to it with his remaining hand quivering.

"Whoa! What's tha big dea-" Applejack started to say, but Kuuga quickly covered her mouth as he gave the frying pan to Fluttershy.

"SHH! Keep it down!" Kuuga whispered in terror.

The sounds of hoofs clopping against the floor in a fast pace echoed outside as a shadow was seen through the space under the door. Kuuga tensed as he watched the shadow stopped for a moment before it dashed away.

"Whew! She's gone!" Kuuga sighed with relief as he slumped against the wall.

"Who is gone?" Sunset asked.

"Pinkie Pie, I thought I never lose her!"

"Why are you avoiding her?" Fluttershy asked.

"I have a limited patience with long conversations unless it is something I like, but I don't think I can stand one second near her! She's a chatterbox hyped with sugar and coffee altogether!" Kuuga exclaimed as he rocked in a fetal position while he gripped his head in terror.

The four mares could only stare at the red warrior with confusion.

"Is there something you wanna' talk ta us about?" Applejack asked, hoping to change the subject.

"Hmm? Oh right!" Kuuga quickly stood up as he brushed some dust off his armor before he bowed in front of them, "I believe we haven't been formally introduced. You may have already known me in the legends, but my name is Kuuga! What are your names young ladies?"

Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash's cheeks gained a tinge of pink as they looked away for a moment, while Sunset twiddled her fingers a bit.

"No!No!No!No!No! I didn't mean it like that! I was trying to be polite!" Kuuga explained as he waved his hands frantically.

"Oh! Forgive us darling, we thought you were trying to charm us! My name is Rarity!" The white unicorn mare spoke as she did a curtsy with her slightly long blue skirt while her pearl shirt shimmered a bit.

"Howdy, I'm Applejack," The cowpony spoke as he tilted her stetson as her overalls ruffled under her green shirt

"My name's Fluttershy..." The yellow mare squeaked as she hid her hands behind her yellow blouse and pink skirt.

"The name's Rainbow Dash," The cyan pegasus boasted as she flew around the room in her blue t-shirt and white cargo shorts, "I'm the fastest flyer in Ponyville!"

"We may not have met officially, but my name is Sunset Shimmer," Sunset spoke as she got off the bed and walked over to Kuuga.

"Pleasure," Kuuga greeted as he shook hands with Sunset, "By the way, who was that purple mare that was chasing me before I ran in here?"

"That was Twilight, she's like a sister to me," Sunset smiled.

Kuuga smiled at this comment, but his good mood was immediately shattered when the doors crashed open to reveal Twilight Sparkle with her purple blouse and blue jeans somehow charred, "Whoa! What happen to her?"

"There's one thing I've learned in my reading, and it's to never cornered a wounded beast to a cannon room!" Twilight panted.

"Did you say 'cannon room?'" Kuuga repeated uneasily as he cringed to the sound of cannons firing.

"Yes why?" Twilight confirmed and asked in confusion.

"Well, while Daguva tends to stay calm most of the time to gain control of his fire powers, but when he gets stressed out, that's when he loses control! Which can be a problem," Kuuga explained before he cringed at the sound of another cannon firing, "Excuse me for a moment."

Kuuga gently took the frying pan from Fluttershy as he walked to the hallway and held it out. A pink blur in a pink hoodie and shorts shot by and stopped with the sound of screeching tires.

"Yo Pinkie! What do you got in trade for this?" Kuuga offered.

"Let's see..." Pinkie Pie started as she pulled out random items from her mane, "I got three packs of matches for birthday candles, a whisk, some cookies that are still fresh, and a fire extinguisher."

"Perfect!" Kuuga cheered as he quickly swapped the fire extinguisher with the frying pan, "See you in a few minutes!"

With a random 'Meep, Meep!' he dashed away to the source of the sounds of firing cannons. Five minutes later, he came back with an annoyed Daguva with some foam on his head.

"Next time! Aim more carefully with that thing!" Daguva snapped as he wiped the foam off his head.

"There were fireballs flying in that room!" Kuuga retorted as he handed the fire extinguisher back to Pinkie without looking. "Now come on! Let's go to the throne room so we can continue where we left off from the conversation before Twilight interrupted us!"

"Then next time! Don't bring an unconscious mare with you during teleportation!" Daguva growled.

"Her name is Sunset Shimmer just to let you know!" Kuuga butted heads with Daguva as he growled.

Every pony in the bedroom watched the arguing duo walked down the hall to the throne room!

"What is with those two?" Twilight asked confusingly as Sunset Shimmer walked beside her, "They are arguing like siblings."

"There's probably a good chance they are," Sunset surmised.
