It was after the Displaced Tournament and me and the boys partied all day and night when we got home but we had to get serious again. Our only allies were the Storm Kingdom, so I decided to go scouting for some people to join my crusade! So, I sat there in my air ship as we flew over the lands of Zebrafrica, I had notified Eden that we were coming to Mokao, the Wakanda of Zebrafrica. I had brought my companions, only two, Sally and Entity. Sally looked at me with curiosity gleaming in her eyes.

"So, why are we going to Mokao?" Sally inquired, raised an eyebrow as she turned to me. I turned to her with a grin as wide as Celestia's body.

"Well, Eden is here in Mokao, so I had decided that we could talk with their leader to gain an ally. King Ziyad of Zebrafrica," I told the corpse, that sounds wrong out of context. Entity butted in the conversation, oh I forgot to mention Entity 303 had Netherite Armor on.

"Alright, this should be fun." Entity red eyes gleamed for a split second before returning to their original crimson state. Sapphire Sword spoke up, being the pilot.

"Uh, there's a mountain in front of us and this Ki you're talking about is coming from that mountain. Should we find somewhere to land?" I walked up to the cockpit, Entity and Sally following me. Ruby was Sapphire Sword's co-pilot. I crossed my arms, no longer grinning.

"Go straight for it," I ordered the duo looked at me in confusion, Ruby spoke up.

"But my King, we'll surely crash if we-" Ruby was cut off by Entity, Entity looked down at Ruby his scythe, Hell Bringer, adding to his intimidating aura.

"Are you doubting your King, Ruby?" Entity asked Ruby, peering down at Ruby. She gulped, obviously scared for her damn life.

"I hope you're right about this..." Ruby muttered before turning to Sapphire Sword, "Alright Sapphy, let's do this. For the glory of Storm Fist!" Ruby and Sapphire shut their eyes as they headed into the mountain the airship went through the mountain. I saw... Something beautiful, the technology dwarfed that of the Storm Kingdom's. It was so technological, I only saw the city from afar yet I could see the people, we flew over the farms that reside the people of Mokao. Ruby and Sapphire Sword slowly opened their eyes, they sighed in relief before they gaped at the sight.

"It's so... beautiful..." Sapphire Sword awed, as they looked at the area, I chuckled.

"Indeed it is, indeed it-" I was cut off as I heard a crash that came from our ship. It knocked Sally off her balance and sent her tumbling. I went out of the cockpit and there was a massive hole in the side of the ship, Ruby let out a scream.

"GAH WE'RE GOING DOWN!!!!!!" Ruby shouted out as the ship spun around and around before it crashed down in an empty plain field that was left untouched. Entity groaned, before getting to his feet, I got up as well as Ruby and Sapphire tumbled out of the cockpit before Sapphire Sword met her lunch again. I winced and looked to Entity.

"Is everyone alright?" I asked him, Entity looked back at the cockpit as Sally walked out with ruffled hair.

"Eh, I say we're doing fine." Entity said in obvious sarcasm, I deadpan at him, Ruby then tapped my arm, I turned to her.

"Uh guys, you should look at that." Ruby pointed to the hole and there was... Officer Earl? How did he get here? I frowned he was likely one of Kaido's men.

"King Thanos of Minos, what brings you here? Have you come to invade our sacred lands?" Earl asked me, I looked down at him with a scoff.

"If I had wanted to do so, I would've done so already, no, I come to form an alliance," I told the African American, he tsked.

"Hmph, really? I don't believe you, given your history with the other Kingdoms, especially the Pony Kingdom, Equestria." Earl clenched his fists, I clench mines.

"You don't want to fight me, I have fought countless foes and all have been defeated by me." I frowned, Earl frowned as well, we both locked eyes.

"Put them hands up then!" Earl ran at me as he did to Flint, I cracked up a little before lunging at him. He covered a fist in Armament Haki, I covered mine and our fists clashed. To my surprise he knocked me back, Earl launched an uppercut to my chin and threw me through the aircraft's roof. He jumped after me and landed a spin kick to the side of my head, I was sent flying to the ground. Earl used Geppo and flew at me attempting to grapple me with his meaty arms. However I caught him and both of our hands were wrapped around each other, I then put my right foot behind me. I let out a roar before slamming Earl down onto the ground, the force made him bounce up in the air. I then did a flip kick and launched him up into the air. Using Geppo, I followed him but unfortunately for me, he recovered, he used Geppo and flew after me. Our fists clashed and it knocked both of us back.

"I'm not gonna lie, you have some spunk kid!" I laughed, Earl frowned.

"Who is you callin' kid, you purple jelly bean?" Earl mocked, however, it only made me laugh more. We flew at each other once more and our fists finally landed on their targets. My fist met his jaw and his fist bet my rib, we both start to slug each other, punch after punch, they were all landing. It was basically Franky and Fukurou punching each other over and over again. Entity took a step out of the ship, the others soon following.

"Should we help him or..." Sapphire Sword said as she looked up at me and Earl slugging each other.

"No, no, let him have his fun." Sally waved Sapphire off, as she looked on at the fight. Finally, we broke out of this cycle when I sledgehammered him down into the ground and into some mud, using Kamisori I appeared before him. I went for a hook kick but that was a mistake as the police officer grabbed my leg. He then threw me over his shoulder and I landed in the mud, I went to my knees only for Earl to pull back his leg and kick me in my chin. The force made me reel backwards, but I caught myself and I headbutt him in his nose. The force made Earl stumble backward, Earl then regained his footing, his nose bleeding. Earl wiped it off before grinning, we were about to continue our bout before a slam interrupted us. We turned towards the noise and there stood King Ziyad with his staff, Earl looked to me, I looked to him.

"He started it!" We both shouted out, pointing at each other. Ziyad just stared at us and let out a small growl.

We stood in Mokao's castle after we got each other cleaned off, Ziyad sat on his throne looking down at me. Officer Earl was close to Ziyad's thrones, Entity and Sally were behind me. Sapphire Sword and Ruby were next to them, Ziyad rubbed his eyes.

"King Thanos I apologize for Captain Earl's... What's the word for it? Oh right, overprotectiveness, we found him nearly dead on our borders, the attacker was a Manticore. Ever since we saved him he has been a loyal subject of mine for three years. Now Thanos what brings you here?" Ziyad asked me, all regal like, damn I want to be like him.

"Ahem, I come to form an alliance," I told the King, the guards all directed their gaze over to me with shocked expressions.

"Go on..." Ziyad mused, I cleared my throat.

"Alright, so you have probably heard of Celestia's outburst at the summit, speaking of which why weren't you there?" I asked Ziyad, Ziyad rolled his eyes.

"My daughter was giving birth and I wanted to be there for her," Ziyad told me, my eyes widened.

"Oh uh, congratulations sir, but we all know, Celestia has the thought process and the emotions of a teenager. She was like this one thousand years ago and I know it's because it takes a while for an Alicorn to mature due to their age but she should be learning by now. We all know that time and time again she has failed to do the right things, not aiding Luna through dark times, not killing Tirek, not killing Sombra when she had the chance. These are villains that threatened the entire world and what did she do? She spared them, she spared them because she believes in redemption, some people- Er... Ponies can't be redeemed. Not to mention she was taken out by a single pony, her kingdom fell in one swoop, her Kingdom is weak, and she needs to be stopped before she releases another evil. Who knows, maybe even Chrysalis or a random pink pony might destroy the world because of her. She makes fatal mistakes that leave the whole world in danger, that is why I have decided to end her and her kingdom. Will you join me in taking over Equestria, King Ziyad?" I asked the King, Ziyad looked down at me before he chuckled.

"My, my, you have quite the collection of words up your sleeve. Quite the dithyramb if I do say myself but what you are saying is... Hypocritical, you preach on how she fails to do the right things but from what I hear, you're the one who failed to kill Sombra." I was taken aback by this, I cleared my throat.

"Well, you see Celestia had the chance when-" Ziyad cut me off when he slammed his staff down, the room became silent.

"You had your turn Thanos, it is my turn to speak." Ziyad frowned, looking down at me, I nodded, "As I was saying, you were the one who failed to kill Sombra. You're a strong man, able to fight on for a whole month before getting defeated in combat. Not to mention you attacked Canterlot with a mercenary who refers to himself as Eric Von Shadow."

"How do you-" I asked him before I was cut off by Ziyad.

"Thank that to Noximilien the Watchmaker, he supplied us with these little bugs, they help us see everything. Including what happened with you and your captors, I must say, you are quite strong. Especially this Goku Black." My eyes opened wide, so he did know...

"Huh, so uh... You know that I can destroy the moon." I asked the King, he nodded, "Oh..."

"Indeed, let us get back to the topic at hand, I'm going to have to say we don't know for our alliance. You're a good man, with good intentions but we're not sure if we can trust you... Yet." Ziyad told me, I bowed.

"Thank you for your time, well uh... We don't have a ship." I chuckled, Ziyad turned to Earl.

"Earl here will direct you to your new airship, it's only fair given that he blew up your ship." Ziyad frowned at Earl who turned away from Ziyad whistling.

"Alright, let's go!"

We were at the Abyssinian Kingdom, our new ship was big yet surprisingly fast, that's what she said. We had arrived there in record time, we were descending to the aircraft docks, Queen Furby crossed her arms and looked up at us. The two guards from the Summit were there, the Lion and the Tiger. We landed and the bridge dropped, I walked down it, my friends following me.

"Hello Queen Furby, I haven't seen you since the summit," I informed the feline, she grins, sticking a furry paw out to me. I took it gratefully

"A pleasure to meet you again, Thanos King of Minos." Furby's grin was contagious as I grinned back. The Tiger rolled its eyes.

"Okay, that's enough you two love birds." I took a step back and she does as well, slightly blushing. She cleared her throat.

"Alright, what brings you to the Abyssinian Kingdom?" Furby inquired, I look to Entity and he nodded.

"I'm here to ask you if you would like to..." Furby's ears perked, "...Join my alliance and takedown Celestia." Her ears flattened, she raised a claw to her chin.

"Oh let me think about it, fuck yeah!" Furby grinned, my eyes widened, I look down at her, shocked as her response was immediate.

"Alright, that's-" The Cat Queen had cut me off, raising a claw.

"However that will come at a price, I want you to beat me in combat. Just to gauge how truly powerful you are, I and Lucci fought and it nearly came to a draw. I know you're stronger so, do you accept?" Furby asked me, I looked to the others, Sally shrugged, Entity did a thumbs up or at least tried to given that he was a blocky man. Sapphire Sword and Ruby just deadpan at me I turn to Furby.

"Alright I accept your challenge where do you want to fight?" I asked the feline, she smirked.

"Right here, right now, I want you to pou- I mean I want you to beat me... In battle." Furby raised a furry paw up at me, I slowly nodded, it was obvious she was sexually attracted to me. Very obvious.

"Okay then... Do we count or-" She cut me off once more as she landed a right kick to my jaw, it made me stumble to the right a little bit. I then slowly stare at her, I stared down at her motherfuckerly.

"Oh, that's how we're going to play it huh? Alright, I'm going to beat your ass." I popped my knuckles I could've sworn I heard, 'Oh please do,' I swear on my life I just heard that escaping her lips. I jumped back away from our aircraft and Furby used Soru to appear before me. Furby cocked back a fist to punch me, I was ready for it until she faked it and delivered a kick to my side. I reached to grab her leg but she was quick and pulled it back before delivering an uppercut. Using my Future Sight Observation Haki, I saw Furby going for a leg sweep, and look what happened, she did a leg sweep. I jumped over it and jump-kicked her, in her forehead. She stumbled backward a bit before I landed a blow on her abdomen, it stunned her for a moment. I took advantage of that and decked her in her muzzle, the force knocked Furby backward. She recovered and used Soru to appear far back, she chuckled.

"You are strong indeed however, let's skip the warm-up!" Furby said as she turned into her Cheetah Hybrid form, I clench my fists and we ran at each other.

Okay so uh... After the sparring session we went to the Diamond Dog Packs apparently Shiva was right, they only know about sex and fighting. Sounds epic, but after I talked with the Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, and Jade Diamond Dog Packs, they were pretty open to accepting. They hate the ponies for mistreating them and running them out of their homelands, so that's another ally. So you must be wondering... What next? Well, we're going to the Avian Kingdom.

"The what?!" Sally shrieked, it shook the whole aircraft as we flew above the clouds. I winced, she was shaky. "You do know what they did to-" I cut her off.

"Of course I know, I still have PTSD of that shit, we need allies, and we all know that Equestria has the Griffon, Seaquestrian, Changeling, Dragon, and Yak Kingdom on their sides. What do we have? Minotaurs, Storm, Abyssinian, and the Diamond Dog Packs. We need to even out the odds." I told the Corpse Queen, she hummed.

"Hmph, well, I guess you're right-" Suddenly there was a crash, I cursed as I walked out of the cockpit. There was... A bunch of pirates, I saw blue flames in the form of wings and talons. It was Marco, Marco the Phoenix!

"Sup Thanos, I hear you're recruiting people," Marco smirked, I looked at him blankly.

"Well uh... Yeah, I was just heading to the Avian Kingdom." I nodded dumbly, Marco then grinned ear to ear.

"Well, you're just in luck, because I'm the King!"
