The Kingdom Key Unlocked clashed blades with a dark, fiery sword in a grassy plain. Oxus was in a battle against his nobody, Bourne. As the blades struck each other, a sharp, ear-ringing sound emitted from them. Oxus grunted as the two Keyblades clashed. "Why do we have to fight?!" cried Oxus, the heat from Bourne's fiery Keyblade making him sweat. "It's my orders..." yelped Bourne. "But you don't have to follow orders!!" barked Oxus, "Together, we can stop the Heartless! Don't tell me you don't want to be good! Look inside yourself, Bourne!" Suddenly, Bourne lifted his blazing Keyblade high in the air and drove it down into the ground, making the grass around the two of them burn and crackle. "I SAID I WAS FOLLOWING ORDERS!!!" screamed Bourne with the full extent of rage in his voice. Oxus's face turned red and hot with anger as he yelled and struck Bourne's Keyblade with his even harder.
Chapter 2: The Destruction Of Thunder
Moyan was in the woods when a mist appeared out of now where in front of Moyan. Then, right as Moyan was about to run, lighting bolted down around him. He was picked up into the clouds. Then, a mysterious figure popped up, and said "I am Thunder, lord of the storms. You have trespassed through my territory, and I shall destroy you!!". Moyan and Thunder fight, but eventually, after a long battle, Thunder gets beaten by Moyan. Thunder yelps " NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".

Chapter 3: Destruction Begins
King Plumber was in his throne room when he was called by a loyal servant to come out on his balcony, "Sir, come quickly!" was all he had to hear before he was on the balcony. Immediately he saw the danger that was close at hand, "The Great Destruction has begun!" he cried, "Go Sam, Find the heroes destined to save Fantendo!" Immediately, the servant (Sam) opened a portal and jumped through.
Chapter 4: No Regrets
Hours had passed since Oxus and Bourne's battle started. The two hares were sweaty and in terrible pain, but their Keyblades still clashed. After a few minutes, Bourne finally gave in and collapsed on the ground, as did Oxus a couple seconds later. And there they layed. Two of the worlds greatest warriors, defeated by themselves. Suddenly, YoshiEgg Nook and Bloop sped to them. Oxus moaned as YoshiEgg helped him to his feet. "He..." said Oxus, "He didn't l-listen... He..." "We know..." said Bloop, "Now, we just need to get you back home." YoshiEgg let out his signature low-pitched "Yup!" as he summoned a shadow ball that engulfed Oxus like a bubble. As they were about to run away, Bourne barked "WAIT!!!" The heroes turned around and waited for Bourne to speak again. "I must follow orders..." croaked Bourne, "Or... They'll kill me..." "Who are they?" asked Oxus. But, before Bourne could respond, red smoke rose from the ground, popped Oxus's bubble, and engulfed all of them and everything around them...
Chapter 5: The First Hero
Sam landed in a grassy plain, looking around he saw no one for miles. Sighing, he walked along, unsure of where he was. After hours, he thought he saw a house, but, he took only a few more steps before he collapsed from hunger and exhaustion... When he awoke, he was in some bedroom, then he noticed someone standing over him. "Where am I?" he asked the figure, "Crystal Palace." it replied "Follow me!" he followed it through the halls of the palace, "I wonder if he's the hero?" he thought to himself as they entered a large room. "Princes Crystalline!" his guide shouted " I have someone to see you!" A lady rose up from her throne. "Really? Thank you for bringing him Ybrik." she said, "Hello sir, where are you from?" she asked, "I come from a place called Fantendo" Sam replied "I am searching for heroes who can save my kingdom from a Great Destruction, I believe Ybrik to be one of those heroes." "I see" was her reply, "Ybrik you are to go with him, help him gather the other heroes, help him save his kingdom, then you must return." Ybrik bowed and the stood beside Sam, "Let's go!" he said, Sam created a portal and they warped away...
Chapter 6: The Final Chance
As Moyan approached Fantendo castle, where King Plumber had been, the dark power from The Wasteland threw Moyan off a ledge into the abyss. He was able to grab on to a rock and climbed on top of it. He tried to get up onto the path, but the mist kept pulling him down. Moyan had had enough and leaped ino the abyss, head first. As he was about to hit the ground, a revived Thunder saved his life by catching him. Moyan asked why Thunder saved him and Thunder said "Because, now I see what I can do if I be good, all the advanteges and.....". That was all that could come out before they noticed a bomb, bolting into the ground and suddenly, it hit the ground and went "KKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". Thunder and Moyan went flying up in the air, and landed at the top of the hill, they both got up, as alive as ever, and ran into Fantendo Castle.
Chapter 7: Darkness' Core
Meanwhile, deep in the Void, A dark figure on horseback was laughing "Gwahahaha! Finally I, Querius shall have my revenge! King Plumber will pay for what he did to me!" He turned to a banned user, "Go and awaken The Dark Ones to ensure the destruction of Fantendo!" the user immediately left. "It won't be long now..." Querius asured himself as he entered his private room...
Chapter 8: More Heroes
Sam and Ybrik were suddenly tossed into a big tree, where they saw a purple squirrel. "Uh...who are you?" The squirrel asked. "My name is Sam." Sam replied. "Do you maybe have any relatives?" "Well, uh...there's my brother, Peanut Jon." The squirrel replied. "Could I see him?" Sam asked. "Sure! Hey Peanut Jon! Someone named Sam's here to see you!" "Thank you, P Nut." A voice replied. Suddenly, a small brown squirrel scurried in. "What do you want, Mr. Sam?" "You see," said Ybrik, "we are looking for some heroes. Maybe you are one?" "Well, I have been slightly heroic from time to time..." Peanut Jon replied. "We need them, for our journey" Said Sam. "I guess I'll come. But, can P Nut come too?" Peanut Jon said. "Yes." Sam replied. "He is also a hero." The four then warped away.
Chapter 9: A Light in the Smoke
The heroes (and one villain) were now trapped in the mysterious red smoke. They knew that if they kept in the smoke, they would probably pass out from the fumes, so there had to be another way. "They..." coughed Bourne, "You know... They... I can't say their name or else they'll come..." Oxus could barely hear Bourne, and because of a sudden outburst of rage on both of their parts, Oxus and Bourne began to fight once more. YoshiEgg wanted to help, but Bloop held him back. "Let them let their anger out..." said Bloop. About 15 minutes passed and everybody in the smoke began to weave and become nauseous. The smoke was poisoning them... Suddenly, after one more clash of the two warrior's Keyblades, a light appeared in the middle of the smoke, the warrior's Keyblades still touching, and cleared it away around it...
Chapter 10: 4 More!
They 7 were warped to McBoo's Mansion, where McBoo, Ghoularry, Akro Bat and O'Lantern were. However, they were in a dungeon. "Help!" cried McBoo. "Luigi, Mario and the Toads kidnapped us! Please save us!" "Come on, heroes!" Sam said. "These four are more heroes!" The 7 dashed up the stairs and found Luigi trying to suck up King Boo. Peanut Jon pounced on the Poltergust 3000, which short-circuited it. Luigi got zapped and dropped the key. The 7 and King Boo free McBoo and friends, and the 10 heroes and Sam warped away.
Chapter 11: Awaken

Chapter 12: Fiery Rage
A large fireball approached Fantendo Castle, as it got closer the palace got hotter. Finally it came into view and the users began to panic, Everyone was evacuated as the fireball prepared to collide with the castle.

Chapter 13: Darkness Averted
The light suddenly got stronger and the two warriors dropped their Keyblades. After about a minute, the light began to dim and the red smoke set in more. The light was revealed to be a Kirby with the mix of the bomb and spark abilities, making it a lightbulb Kirby. The lightbulb Kirby buzzed, then looked at the group. Then, it ran away, giving the others the instinct to follow him, which they did.
Chapter 14: Awakening
The banned user had gotten free, and he was trying to awaken the Dark Ones again. Suddenly, they disappeared and a scroll fell in their place, the user took the scroll and read it, it said: "Foolish mortal, the dark ones do not reside together, they are scattered apart, hidden before our very eyes, this scroll is the map to them, follow it to awaken them." The user blinked and suddenly the scroll had become a map, it pointed towards the Fantendo Sea the user headed off to find the first Dark One...
Chapter 15: Kirby's Lead
Kirby led them to where Sam and friends had landed. After Kirby stopped running, Bourne and Oxus continued to fight. "Why, it's YoshiEgg Nook!" cried McBoo. "Is he a hero?" "He sure is!" replied Sam. "Hero?" Bloop asked. Sam explained, and then told YoshiEgg and Bloop that they heroes. So, the twelve left with Bourne and Oxus still fighting.
Chapter 16: The Fantendo Sea
The user soon arrived at the Fantendo Sea, and he saw that the scroll that turned into a map was now just a map of the Fantendo Sea. He saw that under the sea in the very center was the first dark one. Unfortunately, he can't swim. "Oh, come on!" He complained. He then saw a sub, and hopped in.
Chapter 17: Pokemon Stadium
The twelve soon arrived at Pokemon Stadium, where a Pikachu and a Squirtle were fighting. Soon, Sam decides that the Pikachu was the 12th hero. After the battle, he walked up. "Pika?" asked the Pikachu, who is known as Chuchuchu. "Would you come with us?" Sam asked. "You are a hero we need." "Pika, pik chu?" answered Chuchuchu, apparently saying yes. The 13 left, sure that they were very close.
Chapter 18: Wait!
With Oxus and Bourne still fighting and the others gone, the little lightbulb Kirby was left alone. As the others were walking away, the lightbulb Kirby ran in front of them and frantically buzzed. "And who is this?" asked Ybrik, "A hero?" "Not sure..." said Sam. YoshiEgg Nook let out another low-pitched "Yup!" and pointed to the lightbulb Kirby, then circled his finger around the thirteen friends. The others looked at him in astonishment and confusion. "I think what he's trying to say is that we should let this little guy join us. After all, he did save us from that weird smoke..." "Then, it's settled..." said Sam, "This little lightbulb Kirby will join us!" The lightbulb Kirby lit up and buzzed with happiness as he jumped up and down. Then, the fourteen left, Oxus and Bourne still fighting...
Chapter 19: It's-a me!
The fourteen soon found that they had been warped to the Mushroom Kingdom. They saw a purple Mario, who had a D on his hat. "I believe that is Dario," said Sam, "the fourteenth hero." Dario heard this, and asked what it meant. After it was explained, he joined.

Suddenly the map pointed to Fan City, the user immediately headed that way, when he was stopped by 3.14. 3.14 grabbed him and they warped to Querius, then, in a drone-like voice 3.14 said "Here he is master." "Good..." Querius replied "Now 3.14, I am through with you!" He zapped 3.14 with lightning, killing him. "Don't worry." he said to the user, "3.14 was just a mindless puppet, now, YOU SHALL JOIN HIM!" he said as he killed the user, then he fused 3.14 and the user together creating ShadowPuppet: 3.User4 "Oh, how evil you are Querius" he said to himself "AND YOU," he said to the puppet. "GO FIND SAM AND BRING HIM TO ME!!" then, the puppet left.

He finally saw someone and went towards it.
Chapter 22: Battle for Sam
Moyan saw Sam and friends, and ran towards them. But so did ShadowPuppet: 3.User4! The two raced towards them, but they tied. Moyan jumped towards ShadowPuppet with his knife, but ShadowPuppet sidestepped. The heroes saw this, so P Nut took out a Nutty Bomb and started to light it, but Sam stopped him. "We must leave this place while they are fighting." Sam said. The fifteen ran off, but before they could get away, ShadowPuppet used dark power to grab Sam and escape. Moyan and the heroes ran.
Chapter 23: Where is Sam?
"Who was that," asked Peanut Jon, "and what did he want with Sam?" "I don't know who he is," replied Moyan, "but I believe that he is working for Querius." "But what does Querius want with Sam?" asked McBoo. "I still don't know, but we need to find him before too late." "Well, what are we waiting for?" asked P Nut. "Let's find them!" The 15 dashed off, hoping to find Sam.
Chapter 24: Battle for Sam 2
Moyan and friends saw ShadowPuppet and Sam running towards Querius' palace and chased after him. ShadowPuppet saw them and ran faster, determined to get there first. But Peanut Jon and P Nut grabbed everyone and they scurried in front of ShadowPuppet. Dario shot a fireball towards ShadowPuppet, but he dodged. Moyan started to throw his knife, but Ybrik stopped him. "You might hit Sam!" Ybrik took out his hammer and dashed up and hit ShadowPuppet in the head, but the hammer went straight through him. "Huh?" Chuchuchu tossed a lightning bolt. He wasn't hurt. "Pika?" ShadowPuppet ran towards Querius' palace, but Moyan stabbed him and he was once again 3.14 and Banned User. "W-what happened?" asked the user. "Querius must of fused you 2." Moyan said. They ran into Querius' palace and saw Querius. "What are you doing here?" Moyan took out his knife. "We are here to kill you." he replied. "No, you will not!" Querius shouted. He made him self fly and escaped, in the direction of King Plumber and Fantendo Castle. "Come on! We must run!" shouted Sam and Moyan. They all ran off.

Chapter 27: The Final Stand
Sam and co. watched as Querius flew into Fantendo Castle's ruins, when he came back out, he had the User Crystal! "NO!" shouted Sam as he watched Querius absorb the crystal... Meanwhile Oxus and Bourne finished their fight and they realized that they were alone. "Hey" said Oxus, "Where did everybody go?" Suddenly, they heard someone scream. "It's coming from Fantendo Castle." said Bourne, "Let's go!" Oxus replied, they ran towards the castle.
Bourne and Oxus arrived to see Querius about the break Micool into pieces. But, a Micool Guy was smart enough to jump into the way and push Querius. His name was Mick Cool. Querius gets angry and starts to stab Mick, but Peanut Jon freed Micool and Micool saved Mick. Querius then becomes USER:QUERIUSISEVIL and summons the Dark Ones and the Banned Users to kill all of them. Moyan quickly stabbed the banned users, and the Dark Ones were scared by McBoo. P Nut then layed a Nutty Bomb to kill Querius, but Querius escaped. Chuchuchu zapped Querius and he got hurt majorly, and therefore dropped King Plumber. Dario fed King Plumber a 1-up mushroom and told him to run. Micool the Master trys calling in more Micool Guys to attack, but they were all knocked out. "I only have one choice..." said Querius as he rose into the air. He summoned the void and it began to suck up Fantendo Castle...
Chapter 29: The Companion Revealed
Then, a dark blue shape flew through the air. It was covered in a dark blue robe, it's face hidden in a deep hood. King Plumber turned and shouted, "My friend! You have come!" It was his mysterious companion. The figure pulled out a long, curved sword, and landed on Querius's chest.
"What th-" Querius was cut off in mid sentence as the sword dug deep into his chest. His dark eyes widened, and his mouth fell slack. Purple smoke flowed like blood flowed from the gaping wound."I was so close..." he trailed off as the light left his eyes. The figure gave Querius's chest a kick, and leapt off, onto the castle, where everyone was. The lifeless body of Querius floated off into the Void.
When the figure reached the ground, his hood had fallen off. Unten smiled. Querius was dead. Everyone cheered, and King Plumber walked up to Unten and embraced him. "My dear friend," he said. "You have saved us all."
"Um, I hate to be pessimistic," said Oxus. "But the castle is still being sucked into the void."
Chapter 30: The Void
Unten looked up at the Void, which was engulfing more and more of the castle. Plumber looked as well. "Surely, my friend," he said to Unten. "There must be some other way." Unten gave a sad smile, and shook his head no.
"You are right, my friend," said Plumber. "This is the only way. This is all my fault. I could have stopped it a long time ago. I made Querius what he was. I fostered his ambitions when he was still a User, and they proved to be too great to control." He looked at all of the assembled people. "Please forgive my foolishness." He looked at the Void turned back to Unten. "It is time, my friend. I shall miss you dearly."
Unten smiled, and he floated up into the Void, his arms raised high. And he was gone. The Void was in it's original position, floating above Fantendo, the castle back to normal. Everyone bowed there heads. A tear fell from Plumber's whiskery face and plopped onto the stones of the tower they were standing on.
But then, he smiled. "Fantendo is safe." He said.
