Author's Note: I don't claim credit for Pokémon, Generator Gawl, Escaflowne, or circuses. However ESCAMON is all mine! Bwa ha ha! Okay.


Gawl: Welcome, everyone, to the Greatest Show on Earth!

Koji: You mean Gaea.

Roe: And we're not some circus, Gawl.

Gawl: Okay, okay! Um…

Roe: Welcome to the first ever Escamon battle, where two characters from Tenkuu no Escaflowne will be battling with their Escamon!

Koji: Whoopee.

Camera view changes to pan around the stadium, then zooms in on the field in the center

Gawl: On the blue side, representing the Good Guys, we have…Gaddes!

Gaddes: I can't believe I'm doing this.

Gaddes waves to the crowd

Roe: And on the right side, representing the Bad Guys, we have…Naria!

Naria waves as well

Gawl: Woah! She's a cat!!!

Koji: This is Gaea, Gawl. Anything can happen.

Gawl is still staring

Roe: Combatants, send out your first Escamon!

Both combatants throw out an energist

Koji: It's unlikely that either one would use their strongest Escamon, and Gaddes proved it by starting with Dryden.

Gawl: And Naria is using Eriya. Woah, another cat!

Koji: They're twins, Gawl.

Gawl: …..really?!

Gaddes: Dryden, Hippie Attack!

Dryden gives Eriya the peace sign

Dryden: Love power!

Eriya folds her arms and looks away

Gaddes: What?!

Roe: Oh, and Eriya seems to be unaffected by Dryden's Hippie Attack!

Naria: Eriya, Scratch Attack!

Eriya growls and starts slashing Dryden

Gaddes: Dryden, return!

The beam of white light transports Dryden back into the energist

Koji: I wonder which Escamon Gaddes will send out next.

Gaddes: Merle, go!

Gaddes throws another energist and Merle appears. Gawl's eyes look like they're going to pop out of his head

Gawl: Another cat?!

Koji: Gawl, get over it.

Naria grins

Naria: Eriya, Lucky Attack!

Gaddes: Merle, Scratch Attack!

Merle leaps at Eriya but is thrown back by an invisible barrier

Gaddes: Grrr…Merle, Anti-Hitomi Attack!

Merle: Stay away from Van-sama!!!

Merle starts running at Eriya

Naria: Eriya, Slash Attack!

Eriya doesn't move

Naria: Eriya!!!

Roe: Naria seems to have forgotten that Eriya will not fight another cat!

Merle reaches Eriya and there is a large explosion. When the smoke clears, Merle is standing triumphantly over Eriya, who has the anime-swirly-okay-I'm-defeated-eyes

Naria: Eriya, return!

The beam of white light puts Eriya back in her energist. Naria throws another one

Naria: Jajuka, go!

Jajuka growls at Merle

Gawl: HE'S A DOG?!

Koji hands Gawl a carton of milk like you get with your lunch at school

Koji: Here, drink this and be quiet.

Gawl: I sure love cows!

Masami stands up in the audience

Masami: We know, Gawl! Now shut up so we can pay attention to the battle!

Gawl sticks his tongue out at Masami.

Gaddes: Merle, Kawaii Semi-SD Attack!

Merle goes semi-SD

Naria: Jajuka, Bite Attack!

Gaddes: Merle, Pounce Attack!

Jajuka bites Merle, but it barely affects her thanks to her Kawaii Semi-SD Attack. Merle pounces on Jajuka. He shakes her off

Naria: Jajuka, Howl Attack!

Jajuka howls

Gawl: Jajuka's Howl Attack has countered Merle's Kawaii Semi-SD Attack! Her defenses are back to normal!

Koji: You've got a milk mustache.

Gawl: I was saving some for later!

Naria: Jajuka, finish her off! Bite Attack!

Jajuka bites Merle and she faints

Gaddes: Merle, return!

The beam of white light puts Merle back into her energist. Gaddes throws another one

Gaddes: Balgus, go!

Balgus appears

Naria: Jajuka, Bite Attack!

Jajuka leaps at Balgus, but he dodges

Naria: Grr…Jajuka, Ankle Bite Attack!

Jajuka bites Balgus's ankle and refuses to let go

Gaddes: Balgus, Really Really Really Big Sword Attack!

Balgus pulls out a sword that is waaaay too big and slashes Jajuka

Roe: And Jajuka has been KOed by Balgus's Really Really Really Big Sword Attack!

Gawl: That's gonna hurt tomorrow.

Koji: So far, no one's gaining the upper hand here.

Naria: Jajuka, return!

The beam of white light takes Jajuka back into his energist

Roe: I wonder who Naria will use now?

Naria throws another energist

Naria: Zongi, go!

Zongi appears

Naria: Zongi, Mutate Attack!

Zongi mutates into a copy of Balgus

Gaddes: Balgus, Really Really Really Big Sword Attack!

Balgus doesn't move

Gaddes: Balgus, what are you waiting for?!

Koji: It seems that Balgus is confused by his opponent's similarity to himself.

Gawl: You could put a little more enthusiasm into it, Koji.

Koji: Enthusiasm, that's a big word for you, isn't it?

Naria: Zongi, Bishounen Strangle Attack!

Zongi doesn't move

Roe: What's going on here? Neither side will attack!

Naria: Zongi!!! Oh, wait, I forgot. Balgus isn't a bishounen-type. Zongi! Old Ugly Guy Strangle Attack!

Zongi turns back into himself and starts choking Balgus

Gaddes: Balgus, return!

The beam of white light takes Balgus back into his energist

Gaddes: How can I beat a doppelganger-type?

Gaddes grins

Gaddes: Oh yeah!

Gaddes throws an energist

Roe: I think Gaddes has something up his sleeve…

Gaddes: Millerna, go!

Millerna appears

Gaddes: Millerna, Ditz Attack!

Millerna begins to walk toward Zongi

Millerna: I thought we'd met somewhere! You're a doppelganger, right? It's really too bad that all you can do is fight and die…

Zongi looks sad

Naria: Wha…but…Zongi, fight it! Mutate Attack!

Zongi mutates into Millerna

Naria: Ha! Take that!

Suddenly, Zongi gags and falls over

Gawl: Woah! Zongi just can't stand being Millerna and he fainted!

Roe: And that, people, is the secret power of Blonde-type Escamon. They may seem weak-

Koji: And they are.

Roe: …but watch out if you're using a doppelganger-type.

Naria: Zongi, return!

Naria throws another energist

Naria: Chesta, go!

Chesta appears

Naria: Chesta, Protect Dilandau Attack!

Chesta draws his sword

Chesta: I won't let you hurt Dilandau-sama!!!

Chesta runs at Millerna waving his sword. Millerna screams and passes out. Gaddes calls her back with a disgusted look on his face

Gaddes: Hitomi, go!

Gaddes throws an energist and Hitomi appears

Gaddes: Hitomi, Pendant Swing Attack!

Hitomi starts swinging her pendant. Chesta watches it go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…sorry.

Naria: Chesta! Slash Attack!

Chesta slashes at Hitomi with his sword

Gaddes: Hitomi! I-do-so-much-running-on-Gaea-why-can't-I-run-the-100-meters-in-13-seconds-Attack!

Hitomi starts running in circles around Chesta. He gets dizzy and falls over

Koji: A long name, but an effective attack.

Naria: Chesta, return! Go, Folken!

Folken appears and snarls at Hitomi

Gaddes: Hitomi! Scary Tarot Reading Attack!

Hitomi lays out her tarot cards and looks up at Folken

Hitomi: You're going to die!

Folken: I know.

Gawl: Oooh, and Folken is unaffected by Hitomi's Scary Tarot Reading Attack!

Naria: Folken, Finger Stab Attack!

Folken stabs Hitomi in the neck with the needle in his finger and she faints

Gaddes: Hitomi, return!

The beam of white light takes Hitomi back into her energist. Gaddes looks at his last two energists

Roe: Gaddes seems unsure about which Escamon to use next.

Gaddes: Allen, go!

Gaddes throws his energist and Allen appears

Koji: And for those of you who don't know, Allen is a combination Bishounen and Blonde type Escamon. Folken being a combination of Bishounen and Strategos, this'll be a tough match.

Gaddes: Allen, Bishounen Attack!

Allen tosses his hair over his shoulder and gives Folken his most charming smile. Folken reels back and looks disgusted

Gawl: Oh yeah! Bishounen are strong against other Bishounen because they disgust each other!

Naria: Folken, Arm Reflect Attack!

Folken holds up his mechanical arm. Allen sees his own refection, is hit with his own Bishounen Attack, and gags.

Gaddes: No!!!

Naria: Good! Now, Fate Alter Attack!

Folken: Unmei kaihen!

Allen starts screaming uncontrollably

Gaddes: Allen, fight it with your Chivalry Attack!

Allen: Chivalry states that three against one is not a fair fight!

Gaddes: Now, Blonde Attack!

Allen begins spouting different blonde-ish phrases

Folken: Augh!

Gawl has his hands over his ears

Gawl: I know how he feels.

Folken's eyes roll back and he falls over

Naria: Folken, return!

Roe: Naria is now down to her last Escamon.

Koji: But it's a strong one.

Naria: I can still win this. Dilandau, go!

She throws her energist and Dilandau appears

Gaddes: What?! How can she…?!

Gawl: What's he so surprised about?

Roe: It's nearly impossible to get a Celena to evolve into a Dilandau in the first place, and even then, he's difficult to train.

Koji: Dilandau is known for his unpredictability. He also tends to evolve backwards without notice.

Naria: Dilandau, Chiku Attack!

Dilandau begins stroking his cheek

Dilandau: Chiku…chiku…chiku…

Allen: So annoying…

Allen shoves his fingers in his ears.

Allen: Can't fight it…

Allen falls over. Gaddes swears

Gaddes: Allen, return!

Gawl is stroking his cheek

Gawl: Chiku…chiku…chiku…

Masami comes up from the stands and whacks him. Gawl shuts up.

Roe: Gaddes is now down to his last Escamon as well.

Gaddes throws his last energist

Gaddes: Van, go!

Van appears

Naria: Dilandau, Moreo Attack!

Dilandau pulls out a flamethrower and torches Van

Dilandau: Moreo moreo!!! MOECHAE!!!

Gaddes: Van, Blind Courage Attack!

Van: I'll never run! I'll never turn my back on an enemy and run away!

Naria: Don't let him block you! Destroy Fanelia Attack!

Gaddes: Van! Revenge For Fanelia Attack!

Both draw their swords and begin madly slashing at each other

Roe: I think this is gonna get ugly.

Gawl: Van's got Dilandau pinned down…wait, no, reverse that….aw, this is lame! I want blood!

Masami shakes her fist at Gawl

Masami: I'll give ya blood…

Gawl holds up his hands

Gawl: That's okay, really!

Koji: Quiet, you two. Something's happening.

Dilandau curls up into a little ball, moaning loudly

Naria: Not now, Dilandau!

Van pokes Dilandau with his sword

Van: Dilandau?

Dilandau takes his hands away from his face and looks up

Celena: Dilandau? Who's Dilandau?

Roe: Naria's Dilandau has evolved backwards into Celena!

Gaddes: …..Van! Do something!

Van: But, she's a girl! I can't fight a girl!

Naria: Celena! Attack him!

Celena just sits there

Naria: …..oh yeah, I forgot. Celena doesn't have any attacks.

Silence falls over the stadium. Crickets can be heard chirping. Gaddes coughs. Naria scratches the back of her head

Gawl: So, I guess it's a tie?

Roe: Yep.


Gawl: Party at Masami's place!!!

Entire cast of Tenkuu no Escaflowne cheers and heads for the door

Masami: Gawl!!! YOU CAN'T DO THAT!!!

Gawl: Watch me!!!

Masami chases Gawl out the door, screaming bloody murder. Roe and Koji shake their heads and follow.

Naria returns a moment later, puts Celena (who is still sitting on the floor) back in her energist and leaves
