"YELLING" "Special Move Name" *sfx*

"HERE THEY ARE COMING IN FIRST PLACE WE HAVE THE ALMIGHTY HERO TORRENT AND THE GRAVITY HERO URAVITY."
"Following close behind are the heroes in training Ground Zero and Shouto taking 3rd and fourth place respectively. Now, we just need a few more minutes to wait for the rest of our forty competitors for the next event." remarked Midnight.
"All right, you first forty come over here. The rest of you head over to your seats in the stands." grumbled Aizawa.
"First off I need to tell you all that we reviewed the footage and as it turns out the person in first place is, in fact, the gravity hero Uravity." There was a smattering of applause from the crowd at the news until Aizawa raised his hand for silence. "For the second event, we will be having a cavalry battle."
"You will all be making teams of 2-4 people with the highest places person on top of your horse." As Aizawa explained the rules a graphic of All Might, as the rider, with Thirteen, Cementoss, and hound dog as the horse. "The rider will be wearing a headband containing the total points of your entire team. Also, know that you cannot secure the headband by any means other than the velcro, any attempts I see will have that point band voided."
As Aizawa continued the rules an animation started of All Might putting on a white with red writing headband with each person's points with the total above. "As for how the points will be distributed. Last place will get 5 points, the person in second to last place will get 10 points, third to last place gets 15 points and so on throughout the rankings. Except, for first place, you Uravity have a point total of ten million."
Realizing quickly that everyone had turned to her Ochako reddened under their gazes. Then, surreptitiously, Izuku reached over and grasped her hand calming her down successfully. They had both realized that no one would be looking to team up with ochako as a giant target had been painted on her back due to her first place spot.
The couple turned back to see that they had been isolated. "There is no need to fear, for I am here!" Izuku said, sporting an All might grin.
"Pfffft, thanks. So what do we do about teammates? It will be hard to find people willing to work with us." said Ochako with concern in her voice.
"Already figured that out, just go get Zephyr and I'll get our fourth member."
Time skip 5 min.
Izuku and Ochako reconvened with the people that they had gone to recruit. Ochako had brought the Speeding Hero Blue Zephyr (Tenya Iida), and Izuku had The Jet-black Hero, Tsukuyomi (Fumikage Tokoyami). "So what is your plan Torrent, how will this event progress?" Tenya asked.
"We'll mostly stay focused on evasion with Uravity's points from first place we don't need to take anyone's headbands. Zephyr, you'll be up front and act as our movement while on the ground. Uravity, you're on top since you have the most points and so that you can touch everyone without much shifting. Tsukuyomi and I will be the wings for aerial movement and so we can protect our flanks."
Izuku smiled as they all nodded and moved into position as Izuku continued the explanation in more detail.
Time skip 5 min.
"AND THE TEAMS ARE READY TO ROLL SOOOO LET'S NOT DELAY FOR A SECOND LONGER! 3,...2,...1,... UA SPORTS FESTIVAL CAVALRY BATTLE, BEGINNNN!"
In a sudden frenzy, all of the participants were charging straight for Ochako's team. "NOW!" Izuku said and Dark shadow and Izuku's water tentacles slammed into the ground sending their team flying into the air over the heads of all the other competitors. Then, from the said came a growling explosion coming towards them.
"NOT SO FAST DEKU, I'M TAKING YOUR POINTS."
Seeing this, Izuku looked to Fumikage "Focus on steering with Dark Shadow, I'm going to keep Ground Zero busy." Izuku said with a smirk. Still holding Iida's hand as to not drift away, Izuku sent out a small number of tentacles in an attempt to stall his rival. He was trying to use Katsuki as a launching pad from which to push away, while Katsuki was trying to simultaneously blast away another tentacle and hit Izuku's team.
"Oh my, it appears that young Ground Zero has gotten into some tentacle play with Torrent, how kinky." Midnight commented in a tone that anyone would say was far from appropriate.
Izuku was barely able to push off with how much Katsuki was fighting him, but after a very heated struggle, it was done and Katsuki was forced to retreat back to his team or risk falling to the ground. Izuku now also realized that while in the air he could analyze the quirks of the other students and set to work doing so.
After about 10 minutes of hopping from sky to land and evading other students, the buzzer sounded, while Katsuki's team focused on smaller points as even katsuki realized that he needed to get into the third round.*Buuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrr* "AND THAT SOUNDS THE END OF THE CAVALRY BATTLE, TIME TO SEE WHAT THE STANDINGS ARE FOR THE NEXT EVENT!"
"Now, after counting points and double-checking footage in case we missed any forms of cheating, the results are as follows." Aizawa proceeded to push a button on the remote and showed the scores "In 4th place, Team Hive-Mind; 3rd is Team Shoto; 2nd is Team Ground Zero; And in 1st is Team Uravity."
"AND NOW FOR EVERYONE'S FAVORITE PART OF THE SPORTS FEST, THE TOURNAMENT!"
"First thing is to decide the pairings via computer"DRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRING "And the matchups are as follows; Torrent vs Hive-mind, Shoto vs Cellophane, Chargebolt vs Deja Vu, Blue Zephyr vs Mei Hatsume, Pinky vs Can't Stop Twinkling, Tsukuyomi vs Creati, Tail-man vs Red-Riot, and Uravity vs Ground Zero. Are there any questions, comments, or concerns about this lineup." Aizawa inquired.
One brave soul stepped up " Um, sensei, I wish to drop out. The thing is that I don't remember much of what happened in the cavalry battle so I feel like I didn't earn my spot and…"
"That is completely illogical, you only get 1 chance a year, and three chances in a lifetime, so make the most of them. Now is there anyone else who wants to drop out for some illogical reason?" The silence that followed was so deep you could hear a drop of sweat hit the grass. "Now with that out of the way, you all get a 1-hour lunch break before we start."
"AND TO ALL OF THOSE LITTLE HEROES WHO DIDN'T GET TO SHOW OFF AS MUCH AS YOU WANTED TO, WE HAVE A TON OF FUN LITTLE MINI-GAMES FOR YOU DESIGNED TO SHOW US WHAT YOU ARE MADE OF!"
A/N: Sorry for the long wait I lost my motivation for the story but now my brother (who betaed the story for me previously) has taken over and I'm his beta. Hopefully, the update schedule will remain more constant from now on but I can't make any promises.
