Blow four of the stockpiled weapons to smash Minato into Stalin, propelling him through the wave. Use two of the stockpiled weapons to hold him in place and keep him from escaping, use Durandal and Rho Aias to cleave the rest of the way.

Faith might have been scared to the point of trembling, but that wasn’t going to stop her from taking action when a gigantic goddamned horde of zombies was bearing down on her — with a cry out and a whipping motion of her hand, another blast of vitriolic negative magic whipped out, wide and long.
Faith uses Desperation Break (assuming that in negative mode she can just use it for the wave), widening area of effect to max and tossing it at the incoming horde!

[Now Playing: Fatality]

A rippling purple wave. Everything it touches dies. They die brutally, violently, as if cleaved in twain. Though that, is a bit cleaner than the truth. The attack was no blade, the wave bore no edge, no, what obstacles lay in its path, it simply blasted through, as if they weren't there, as if they never existed. As the wave fades, something else rushes out from its shadow, unseen save for the havoc it wreaks. A great gale compressed to a razor's edge the zombies it passes simply fall to pieces as they run, collapsing into neat little piles. For a moment, the wave recedes, not so much pushed back so much as just being erased from the area. But then, it surges back once more. Zombies trip and trample over their fallen comrades, Yuki's saw leaving streaks of red with every swing, Satoshi covering her blind spots with staff and cleaver, the pile around them growing higher and higher, a palisade of corpses to break the desperate charge. Out of this, Shef strides forwards and before him, the horde recedes. Comrade turns upon comrade, the raging rapids of blood and corpses parting before him, revealing his target.

You got a clear shot now. No idea how long it'll last, but you best make the most of it. Because right now, Minato's mech is nonfunctional, and Yoake is tumbling away, badly hurt.

What happened? Well Minato and Yoake both just exploded forwards at Stalin, and in the ruckus that followed, claimed his ursine arm with a tail of fire. Unfortunately well, remember how the guy was readying to meet your attacks head-on with those arcing weapons? Yeah uh, that was no joke, the man fucking steps diagonally, letting Yoake take the arm as he brought the hammer against her and the sickle against Minato. So the vials and stakes get launched straight up, the hammer grazes Yoake, and the sickle bites into Rho Aias. Thing is, those arcs weren't just for show, the attack wasn't just physical, hell they weren't even primarily physical, no, this attack was magical through and through.

Yoake? Your Regalia seemed to flicker where it touched that hammer. There was no physical damage here at all, but whatever it did, it hurt, it hurt like a bitch, and you find your lunge turning into a tumble. It's a magical assault, something that directly alters its target, like what Mary used against you. This is more powerful however, but of course, this one has to touch you, and between the telegraphing and arcs, you can at least see this coming and doge right out of the way.

Minato? Rho Aias breaks, violently. The exoskeletal arm holding it? That breaks too. Practically explodes, takes a small chunk of the frontal plating out with it; an explosion devoid of all heat and light, just broken pieces flying through the air. The impact forces you backwards, you've lost a stockpiled unit too - the impact snapped it. So that was his trick then, a destructive transmutation, a powerful one at that. Enough to short out Yoake's Artifical Regalia even if only for a moment. At the current difference in raw output, clashing with that will destroy any summoned weapon short of a True Invocation. Trading blows is out of the question when those weapons are arcing, but so long as he cannot touch you or your attack... Error warnings flash across your interface, mech's a write-off, its systems are all failing. Fine, looks like you'll just have to do it the usual way.

Compelled by Shef, the horde around the Aramitama begins to recede away, leaving him standing alone. From the stump of his left arm, another hand of blood and shadow begins to form, reaching up to catch a vial as it falls back down. He is not preparing to attack. He is not preparing to counter. He is not preparing to dodge. Eyes are beginning to peer out from the wounds running up his chest. He stares you down, as if daring you to attack.

Shef could see Stalin from where he was, so now seemed the time to resume an offensive. He raised his gun, and fired a shot. This was a bit of an investment, a bit reckless. He had no idea whether this type of attack would be any use on an enemy who could reform. It had worked on Hitler, but that meant very little. But it wouldn't be all bad if he couldn't do any permanent damage. He could redirect his effort from aiming the repeated strikes, to just making as many as possible. It would provide some small respite for Yoake and Minato who seemed to have had a bit of trouble.

Keep up requiem effect. Use Enforcer [R] on Stalin. Aim for center (reactor) and try to get a few strikes in there first, then spend the last bit of the bullet's energy trying to put a few holes in the arms holding the weapons.

And by God, was she going to use it.

Minato ignored the alarms blaring across the helmet's interface, gritting his teeth, anger still boiling in his blood. Tsukasa's mecha was pretty shot, he could tell; one of the legs was moving too slow, he figured the actuator was blown there, and his integrators weren't working right. The weapons he'd manifested were flickering between their increased size and their normal size. He was going to need to ditch his mech soon, if he didn't want to be dead in the water.

Still, Stalin had taken a direct hit from a True Invoked Regalia. The fight had gone on a while, and even the bulkiest Aramitama couldn't exactly take a direct hit from something like that, not after the huge beating they took. After all, Lord Humungus didn't exactly take even one of Minato's False Regalia to the heart that well, but Stalin was still standing. Almost as if....

Wait. The arc reactor. Something wasn't right. Minato was sure he'd smashed Gungnir right into it and yet it wasn't damaged. It wasn't some kind of shielding that Minato wasn't aware of; otherwise, it would've used it to protect itself from Gungnir in the first place, mitigating the damage he'd dealt. Yet, Minato had managed to blow up half his body with the kick to begin with, and he was retreating to try to heal his wounds, but he was still standing, and the arc reactor was entirely undamaged. The Aramitama was able to regenerate its wounds, as far as Minato saw.

All its biological wounds.

Something clicked in Minato's mind. He flips on communications.

"Everyone, listen up! We need to destroy the body! The reactor's the weak spot, but as long as the body's still around, we can't destroy it! We need to destroy the body and then hit the reactor with everything we got! I can't hit him yet, not while his weapons are up like that, but you guys can, as long as you don't get close to him!"

And, as for Minato intended to start the process? Well, the mecha wasn't doing much anyway. Besides, it was just as much of Minato's Regalia as Rho Aias.

And that meant he knew what he could do with it.

Burn a 1. Take the mecha off, launch it at Stalin and self-destruct it right before it contacts Stalin's weapons, forcing him outside of his wave right into Noriko and Faith's firing line.

Launch Minato forward with two of his stockpile, using the rest to keep his defenses up and stay in pursuit of Stalin.

Advance on Stalin carefully, making sure to stay clear of Faith's attack, and abuse the longer range of my spears to try and score hits on the reactor. Burn a 1.

Donate resolve to Faith. Stay clear of her attack and chop some of the remaining zombies. Use the 4-heal on Yoake.

Yoake, dazed, stayed in that moment for some time. That bastard had fucked with her in a way she did not appreciate.

As she continued to tumble, she regained her focus. She wouldn't let this hit get to her. She could recover.\

Recover she does, landing on her feet before springing up off the ground once more to catch the healing vial before Stalin can. Drinking the vial if she can, too, but if she can't, breaking it.

Faith was still an upset mess, of course, it hadn't really been that long st all, but one thing she was NOT was any less capable of putting destruction out than she normally was. This had been proven more than once this battle already, but it was (hopefully) about to be proven again. Others had worked on making her shot clear, and now Faith was going to take it, summoning another spear of vicious energy and throwing it at Stalin, aiming at one of the areas of his body where the flesh was hopefully blown away and revealing his reactor.

Faith uses Piercing Insecurities on Stalin with the donated Resolve, seeing if all those holes and rips in his chest make for a valid target! Alteration to 5.

[Now Playing: Fatality]

Okay so Minato crashes his mech right into Stalin and detonates it. Leaping up out of the explosion, Yoake leaps upwards, grabbing the falling vials and drinking them all in one gulp as a series of spears and a bullet crash into the Aramitama below. Things, don't go as well as you'd hope. There's no vicious counterattack or anything, he just, stands there. Trouble is, when all the dust clears he's still standing.

The only hit that seemed to matter was Faith's spear, leaving another gouge running through his chest, the lance of energy managing to clip the arc reactor even as Stalin shifted to the side, leaving a hole in the side of its casing and the whole device flickering and sparking. The other wounds on his chest begin to close. Noriko's spears had failed to pierce though they are now lodged in the rapidly closing wounds. Shef's Enforcer round was enough to strike into his flesh, but in the end they glance off. It was a technique for soft targets, ideal against flesh one would think, but in that moment Stalin got harder than Minato thinking about Faith. So really fucking hard.

Yuki has a little more luck, what with her foes being unable to become nigh-invulnerable at a moment's notice, her chainsaw doing an admirable job of keeping the scattered zombies at bay and in pieces.

Satoshi casually draws her revolver striding forwards.
"What a stupid trick. You care barely dodge with that on, much less attack. And you still took damage."
She nods at Faith.
"All you're doing is delaying the inevitable. If you can't move, if you can't block, we'll just fire until you're dead. If you can even maintain that. If not, Noriko has plenty more enchantments and I'd think she can use them faster than you can pull out the spears. Give it up. It's over. We've figured out your trick, your army's dead, your Sanctuary's gone."

"No... Not yet... I-I can still stand... I can still fight... and if I can drag even one of you to Hell with me... that would be enough."

[Now Playing: For Whom The Bell Tolls]

His hand rushes into his chest and closes around the reactor, crushing it.

"That... would be worth my life."

Radiant light begins to tear through Stalin's form. His form begins to fail. But not fast enough. His weapons shatter. His army fades. But still, still there is some spark of life in him. His body unravels, the blood and shadows fading to reveal naught but a pulsing nervous system sustained only by ki. He claps his hands together one last time, charging up another transmutation, but of course that is naught but another afterimage. He's reappearing right to Faith's side lunging forwards for one last kamikaze attack.

Faith
You have the sinking feeling you won't be able to dodge this. The guy's first, you've got a split second to react and honestly? You aren't liking your chances. How much power was in that reactor? It was enough to sustain that entire army, enough to make him regenerate, enough to do all that magic without breaking a sweat. If he really is sacrificing it, expending it all, the core of his being, his entire future, in a bit to kill you. Well, it's going to be hard getting it to miss. Your Regalia will do little against a magical attack like that. If it's come down to this, then you're gonna have to face that attack head on. No more running, no more hiding. Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. Your target's right there. Kill him before he kills you.

((Satoshi donates her 2 remaining points of Resolve to Faith!))

Well, Stalin wasn't wrong in deciding to target Faith, she was definitely the easiest target. She was also one of the most dangerous, faced head on. So flanking had been a good idea. But an idea was all it would be. Shef whipped his hand out, summoning a portal in front of Faith leading directly to Stalin. Hopefully she'd use it.

Hey, look over there![3] to give Faith a quick open shot on Stalin. Alter to a 4.

Faith shrieked as all of a sudden Stalin popped up beside her and, by the sounds of it, prepared to deal some sort of horrifically deadly kamikaze attack on her. She didn’t have time to think about it, though, because her window was measured in scant milliseconds — she couldn’t move away, so all she could do was take the literal hole Shef had opened for her, and shove a spear of ALL of the day’s panic and embarrassment pain into it as fast as she could.
Faith uses one donated Resolve to use Piercing Insecurities, snd uses anither Resolve to add the combined negative emotions of the entire day to its strength! Alteration to 4.

Yuki had a split second to process what was happening. In the next half of that second, great violence was attempted. Not letting any of that happen no sir-ee.

Dump two resolve and a 5 from further down the worldline into a SURPRISE ATTACK (OF JUSTICE). Ideally while not getting in the way of Faith's beam thingy.

[Now Playing: For Whom The Bell Tolls]

A crackling spear of energy crashes through the portal and into Stalin's side. This would be the third curse this battle. Purple lines trace outwards, out the great hole in the Aramitama's flickering body. Then with a flash of silver and terrible roar, they find themselves cleaved in twain. No doubt a killing blow, but the writing's on the wall, it wouldn't be enough.

Faith's attack was a spear of energy. Yuki's attack was a cleaving strike. Each alone was more than enough to kill. But killing is not enough.

No matter how you cut it, no matter how you cut him, this could only kill, and his life, was already forfeit. The broken pieces of his body continues forwards, kept moving by sheer momentum.

Contact. Discharge.

Arcs of energy erupt outwards, spreading across Faith's body. Her clothes, the ground beneath her, it all blows apart, as everything fades to white.

But, as the debris cloud clears, it is clear, that Faith Tatsumaki is still standing. Her clothes are gone, her chest plate fell off, but she's still standing, and she's unharmed.

"How..."

Stalin fades to naught, his shards scatter.

Spoiler: Level Up! (click to show/hide)

The black sky cracks, and the Sanctuary shatters. You are now all standing in the mansion's loading dock - your access point. Okay, 'standing' might not be the best choice of words here, 'tangled' is probably a bit more accurate. See, you guys don't end up in empty room you entered from, no, what you find yourselves in is a little bit closer to DashCon, except y'know instead of a ballpit it's a grand magic circle filled with what is best described as a mosh pit of flailing tentacles.

Fleur and Vendelin are standing just outside the circle carrying several spare changes of clothes. Evi and Mary are the next two to enter the room. Shef notices Evi dismiss something as she enters.

"W-why are they naked?"
"Called it. We got some spare clothes, just need a bit to dispel this..." (Fleur)

Noriko, in this situation, found herself robbed of the gift of speech. And a fair amount of her self control. Her reaction consisted mainly of a strangled noise, and turning bright red followed by an indignant screech. Blasts of wind, punches, kicks, and scything spears burst out from where she was, aimed at the mass of tentacles and heedless of their actual source. This was all just far too much. Property damage be damned, she wasn't going to be H-doujin bait, and seeing Yuki and Faith get jostled about by the same situation was not helping her calm down in any regard.
