||Dragonball GT Episode 12
Kami no otsuge wa chou-meiwaku!! Ruudo Kidou
The Oracle of God is REALLY Troublesome!! Soldier Ruudo
Mushi and the heroes are in a stand-off, while the worshippers run
away. Mushi's first moves are to snap its whip-arms at the ground near
the heroes' feet. Gokuu, based on the last guy they fought, says that
he looks forward to fighting Mushi. Mushi snarls that since the pair
don't know the extent of its frightening powers, it will demonstrate
first -- then it starts whipping the floor again. Rock slabs rise from
the ground, as Mushi explains that it is a demon with control over
earth. The slabs attack. Gokuu and Trunks run away, barely avoiding the
slabs. Trunks wants to know what to do, and the only reaction possible
is to smash up the slabs that get too close. They get hit by some
slabs, and Trunks uses an energy ball to blow more away. Then, more
slabs swoop in to attack, knocking Trunks through a wall and down to a
courtyard below. Extra slabs drop down on him, burying him under a
pyramid of rock. Trunks catches the slabs on his shoulders, but now he
can't move because of the weight.
Gokuu shows up through a doorway, and runs down some stairs to see if
Trunks is ok. Mushi snaps the stairs, and they weave, throwing Gokuu to
the ground below. Mushi snaps several pairs of swords, which fly at
Gokuu, caging him in. Gokuu escapes the cage to attack Mushi, while the
demon snaps on a pillar. Two fire pots attached to the pillar join, to
make a flying, fire-belching cannon. Gokuu's pants burn, as Mushi
commands the cannon to keep attacking. Gokuu grabs one of the swords and
destroys the firepots with it. Gokuu challenges Mushi to a direct
combat; the demon gets angry and snaps the floor; it grows hands which
grab Gokuu's legs. Trapped against the floor, Gokuu gets whipped and
kicked, while yelling out "Stop this!" The boy escapes, but Mushi snaps
the wall, and a statue reaches out to grab Gokuu again. Pissed off, our
hero goes SSJ; destroying the statue and smashing Mushi to the ground.
Mushi can't understand what just happened.
Meanwhile, a monkey-man with long blond hair is in a room,
watching the battle via a monitor screen. The monkey strokes the Pan
doll in his arms. He comments on Gokuu's energy, which would be good
for giving to Ruudo, but Mushi is not strong enough to defeat the boy
alone. Then, a messenger enters the room to tell the "Sect's Founder"
(the monkey) that some strangers have arrived and killed Moshimoshi.
The Founder replies that he wants the worshippers to gather in front of
Ruudo, and adds that everything is ok. The messenger leaves, and Pan
silently wonders how this wimp could be the Founder of the Ruudo sect.
He keeps stroking Pan, and chuckling. He then uses his ring to summon
what looks like a silver flashlight.
In front of Ruudo's statue, the worshippers are waiting. Many have
been injured, and are bandaged up. They are curious about Doru-takki's
coming out to see them (it's been a long time since that last happened.)
They expect their Founder to make everything all right again. (Note:
Doru-Takki translates to "Doll"-Takki. I don't know what "Takki" is
supposed to mean. If it was "Tacchi", it would be "Doll Touch".)
Doru-Takki is announced, and the rabble murmurs as their founder
appears. He talks very formally. He praises them for their hard work
in praying to Ruudo, and says that their God is ready to appear. All
that remains is for them to join with Ruudo (all of this is very
cryptic.) Doru-Takki then turns on the flashlight and aims it at
Ruudo's head. The crowd guesses that they are to be Ruudo's next
victims, and are correct. Doru-Takki bids them farewell, as the beams
from the statue's eyes turns the panicking worshippers into dolls. The
flashlight beam turns from red to green, causing a massive wind to sweep
the screaming dolls into Ruudo's giant urn. The liquid level in the
collector flask rises, but it is still not enough. Normally. It is
sufficient for a surprise attack on the two intruders, allowing
Doru-Takki and Pan to slip away and play together. He snuggles against
Pan's face, and she panics.
Underneath the pyramid of rocks, Trunks goes SSJ, destroys the rocks
with a kick, and then flies off to rescue Gokuu. Gokuu is still SSJ,
and is causing Mushi to wonder where this increased power and speed came
from. Their battle is more or less equal, until a smash against the
rocks causes Gokuu to revert to normal. Mushi chokes the boy, until an
energy ball blindsides Mushi and destroys the demon. Trunks asks if
Gokuu is ok, and the boy thanks his friend. A TV set is showing all of
this from within a girl's playroom, but Doru-Takki ignores it.
This is now "cute Pan's" room, and Pan guesses that this guy is a
"Doll Otaku". He claims that Pan is now his #1 favorite doll, and won't
be given to Ruudo. The next problem is to decide what clothes to dress
her up in. Doru-Takki has difficulty deciding, and finally chooses a
light aqua blouse. He struggles to remove her shirt, and Pan silently
screams out against this "etchi" behavior. Ultimately, he lifts her
shirt up (revealing a flat chest) but is interrupted by an alarm.
Ruudo's energy is not enough to make it god-like, but is at least enough
for it to move around and fight. Doru-Takki is upset that the boys are
disrupting his fun, and wants to use Ruudo to dispose of them -- he
apologizes to Pan for the delay.
Gokuu and Trunks reach Ruudo's statue, and wonder where to go to find
Pan. Trunks notices a lone doll lying on the ground, as Gokuu finds the
Dragon Ball again. Doru-Takki tells them to leave the Dragon Ball
alone, and introduces himself. And, for bothering him while he and Pan
play together (Gokuu calls out Pan's name, confirming it to Doru-Takki)
he will have them killed. He uses the flashlight on the statue, and a
green beam makes it wake up. Gill, still lying helpless on the ground,
calls out "danger, danger". The energy from the urn beams up, and
cracks form across Ruudo's body. Doru-Takki laughs maniacally.
Note: I'm not exactly sure how to translate "Kidou". The kanji used
to make this word does not appear in my dictionary.
