“Great Sir Hero, the five golems respectively possess the same attributes as the five Elementals of wind, fire, wind, water, and heart, and the weaknesses of each element disappears upon their combining together and thus they become immune to magic attacks. In addition, the magic cannon of different elements can be used efficiently according to the situation. Isn’t it amazing?”
So the Sage explained.
“Five elements, huh…”
“Divinity and Dark Energy are missing.”
“I am ashamed to say that I failed in including those two elements. The indiscriminately raging power of Dark Energy was too difficult to refine, while there was outright no way at all of procuring the Divinity of angels whose very existence is uncertain.”
I couldn’t help laughing despite myself—no way of procuring Divinity? The moment I received possession of the super robot from the Sage, I bestowed upon it the powers of Divinity and Blessing to the utmost.
▷Race: Elemental Golem
▷Job: Guardian(Protect→Damage Suffered↓)
▷Skills: Physical Strength(SS) Endurance(S) Divinity(S) Protect(S) Flame(S)…
▷Condition: Torso, Union, Blessed
The five golems that absorbed the power of Divinity each experienced growth, which was why the Status of the super robot that had finished transforming and combining underwent similar improvements.
▷Race: Ultra Golem
▷Job: Guardian Deity(Protect→Divine Protection↑)
▷Skills: Physical Strength(SSS) Endurance(SS) Divinity(SS) Immunity(SS) Protect(SS)…
▷Condition: Union, Blessed
Although it would have been even better if I could add Dark Energy on top of all this, I wasn’t able to do so as it failed to achieve harmony and instead caused a backlash. Nevertheless, I wasn’t greatly disappointed since I felt its current Status was already enough to thrash everything except for Demon King Pedonar.
The Sage spoke in a warning tone.
“The capability of this golem is superior to the point of being unprecedented throughout the entire history of Fantasia, but it consumes that much mana. Even for you, Great Sir Hero…”
“The Hero’s mana is infinite. Bear that in heart.”
“Keh! Isn’t that outrageous?!”
“You think I’m a Hero for nothing? Watch closely.”
The Skill ‘Infinite’ which I had obtained through Saintess H in the Hero Festival, had the effect of preventing the fall of Skill ranks. Divinity, Dark Energy, Stamina, Magic Power, Vigor, Inner Strength… these types of power source Skills would fall in rank if the user didn’t rest after expending all available power; however, I was completely freed of this restraint.
I poured out all the mana I possessed.
Magic Power(E)→Magic Power(C)
The tiny bit of magic power, which I had obtained upon defeating the cat giant, quickly developed as I recharged the golem’s power source. Due to the strongest five golems specially made by the two geniuses combining together, the power they required was five times more as well! The total energy required was fifty times the average golem, which was why the amount of mana being drained out of me was tremendous. An ordinary Magician would have become crippled from the depletion of mana at this point, but that didn’t matter to me.
I didn’t know how to use magic nor sorcery, yet only my Magic Power rank continued to shoot up, and thus the amount of mana I could supply at once improved a great deal along with the rise in rank. Even if my mana was infinite, there was a limit to the amount that could be squeezed out per second, after all, and it was that maximum amount that had increased.
The Sage, who could be said to have received the blessing of mana without exaggeration, understood what had occurred upon seeing it with the naked eye, and was deeply moved to the point of trembling; however, not everyone was surprised. I called out to my shabby little sister, who was merely wearing a puzzled look despite being a Magician as well.
“Just call me Hero. And don’t play cute.”
“Sir Hero! Lanuvel is naturally like this I’m telling you!”
I ignored the likes of her worthless excuse and continued speaking.
“What happened to the information I made a trade for recen—6 years ago with the Dark Commerce regarding the Hero of Origin?”
Although the trade did fall apart with me being frozen over by the cat’s curse, the Dark Commerce who had wanted Golem D’s blueprint wouldn’t have given up easily. They must have gathered and stored that information I requested for somewhere.
“Eh… I mean…”
“Lanuvel doesn’t know at all.”
“Well isn’t that something to be proud of!”
I had done well to not expect anything from Lanuvel in the first place.
Magic Power(C)→Magic Power(A)
By the time the super robot’s huge mana tank had become filled, my Skill Magic Power had grown to A-rank. It was necessary to first consume more Magic Power in order to raise it further; in other words, it was time to put the golem into action.
“Let’s go! Captain Fantasy!”
▶Goosebumps: I did guess it when you called a lovely Saintess Rice Cake, but that tacky name is a bit…”
‘Tsk-tsk! Miss Trainee Teacher doesn’t know of romance.’
The name of a super robot was better the more intuitive it was as it would have more impact. We were going to dominate the peace of the 6th Playthrough—with overwhelming power!
Captain Fantasy ran powerfully towards where the crimson golems were gathered. Although there were numerous boosters attached to its back, I saved them for the aerial battles that might occur later on.
The cluster of crimson golems were of various countries; however, there was no need to go so far as to distinguish them since they were all as good as henchmen of the Dark Commerce.
“They’re all bastards to be killed anyhow…”
The Dark Commerce had been attacking the Sage’s Tower, the biggest hindrance to their monopolizing the golem market, for 2 years now, mobilizing all the countries in the northern continent; however, they had failed to cause the downfall of the tower. In exchange, by surrounding and cutting off the Sage’s Tower in three directions, with the exception of the path leading towards Snowy Mountain M, they had succeeded in shutting out the sales of blue golems and the material supply line for them—until today.
The place I had come to was one of the outposts of the encirclement.
“Gasp! What the hell is that?!”
“Isn’t it enormous?!”
“A monster has appeared from the Sage’s Tower-!”
The northern continent allied forces were shocked upon seeing my super robot.
“An excellent reaction.”
This was the sound and smell of the battlefield. The view of the ground below I got from sitting on top of a golem at least two times taller than the crimson golems of feeble design was truly beautiful. And it was going to get even more beautiful.
The drills that were equipped in various spots of my golem’s body like spikes began to rotate.
“Destroy them all! Captain Fantasy!”
▶Blush: That name is… Uuh…
My super robot charged towards the heart of the enemy camp, like an adult cutting through kindergartners bunched up before a TV. But it didn’t act kindly like you would treat a child.
Crash! Bam! Pzt! Boom!
Every crimson golem that came into contact with Captain Fantasy’s drills were shred apart one after another, and it wasn’t just the golems being wrecked; the Magicians, engineers, merchants and so on who were leisurely resting in the tents set up across the outpost were shredded along with the golems.
“The enemy is alone!”
“Do not be frightened!”
The allied forces had received a heavy blow due to my surprise attack, but the number of crimson golems surrounding the Sage’s Tower was still many. 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200… the quickly amassed crimson golems rushed to attack me as one; however, I felt their efforts merely amusing.
Captain Fantasy ignored and deflected all ordinary damage through Divinity’s S-rank and SS-rank effects. In order to deal even the slightest damage to the golem’s hard exterior, you would have to attack using a special equipment infused with Dark Energy or Divinity. Otherwise?
You would end up self-destructing like this.
Boom! Crash! Clunk!
