Part 24: MORE POWER!
So what are we going to do with Megatron now?
Ooh we have a visitor!
...Nevermind. What did the dinosaur give you?
It's another coupon for the training center.
That's great! Send Megatron in right away.
What are you going to send him to work on?
Take him to Salem. He needs more power.
Salem it is, then. Just promise me you won't do that again.
Megatron has gotten used to the icy winds of Mount Salem, so I doubt he will run away this time. That, and we've chained him to his cave.
He still howls every morning, but now it is a cry for freedom, rather than complaining about being too cold. This is a sure sign that he's getting stronger.
When our handler went to check up on Megatron, he found that the monster had eaten through his chains and at least three sherpas. This would normally be a cause for concern, but sherpas are so cheap we get them in six-packs. Although I may have to check to see if they had families, and send them FIMBA coffee mugs.
Not only did your monster pass every week of training with flying colors, but he even learned a new attack! Maybe all those sherpas did something to him. I'll have to investigate that, for possible new feeding techniques.
Megatron now knows Cyclone. Oh, he's gonna beat some ass one day. But not today! Today, he will get more power.
I'm not even going to give you the chance to say it.
Oh, you're no fun.
Now, his power is all well and good, but I think we should boost his hit-taking abilities a little. Hmm... I know! We'll have him fight ninjas in front of some palace somewhere. That'll toughen him up.
Those weren't ninjas.
Eh, close enough. Now, we'll send him to a logging camp for no good reason.
Do you know what today is?
I told you Holly, my religion forbids Secretary's Day.
No! It's Megatron's 2nd birthday! Let's sing a song this year, too.
I want to eat your children, Holly.
Even Megatron wasn't amused. All he could do was stare blankly. He wondered if he was being punished.
Oh hey, it's also time for the Official C Cup tournament. Do you want to see if all that power you pumped into Megatron payed off?
Well guys, do I?
