Keiji had avoided the swamp with some fancy puppeteering and was now charging straight toward him! It seemed they had gone from the circus straight to the bullfighting ring. “Well add Matador to my resume, why the hell not?” he thought to himself. As the mount and rider approached at high speeds Tatsuya would wait for them to be within 5 meters of his puppet Piero before activating its Deadlights. Blinding light would flash out from the puppet’s eyes and mouth along with a mechanical grind of a short laugh track. Being that close the light would be bright enough to blind Keiji and once he was Tatsuya would leap up and over him, bringing his puppets along for the ride. He’d go 2 meters up and 5 meters east, eventually landing 4 meters east of Keiji, between him and the swamp. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, we still have some things to do before that.
First of all, it seemed that Keiji didn’t attack until he reached Tatsuya’s position, so if he still did that after the blinding light it goes without saying that it would miss, as Tatsuya was no longer at the position he had aimed at.
Secondly, while he was in the air above him he would have his puppet Harlequin hover between Keiji and him before reaching one foot out and shaking it all about while shooting a high-pressure water jet cutter toward Keiji. The stream of cutting water was already dangerous enough as is but it had a range of 25 meters and when Harlequin moved his limb while firing it the stream was basically a 25-meter long sword, without any of the unwieldinesses such a comically oversized weapon would normally have. The puppet erratically swung its “sword” at Keiji and as the stream descended on him from above it would cross up and down, forward and back, left and right, even if he had his puppet pull him 25 meters away he would be running blind and would eventually get hit by a swing, since they were covering every direction Keiji could move in, and the stream was more than strong enough to cut through Keiji and his puppets if it connected.
