Why else would I have chosen such a disreputable-looking cretin? Look at him! No dignity, no manners... Yet in the realm of Earth, men like him can amass great wealth, and almost god-like power.
Yeah, and I'd like to get back to my amassing as soon as possible, if you don't mind! Now when do I get paid?
We got a guy with things comin' out of his hands, we got another guy who freezes stuff, and then there's a man, who as far as I can tell, is made out of electricity. I mean, how did he disappear like that? What is goin' on here? WHO IS THIS GUY?
Let's just think this through. There IS a rational explanation for all this.
He's Rayden, god of lightning and protector of the realm of Earth.
Oh yeah. THERE'S your rational explanation!
Challenging Goro eh? You weren't supposed to fight him now. Are you THAT eager to die?
I'm not the one who's gonna die.
I see. You're very foolish. A true sign of a hero. You want to protect your friends, but make no mistake; they too will die, after Goro destroys you.
So what's the problem?
As you wish. As absurd as your request is I shall grant it. In return, I reserve the right to challenge the winner myself... or another of my choosing. In a place designated by me for the final battle of the tournament.
You got it pal.
