“I most certainly have been caught in a huge scheme.”
The Demon King Fedonar must have launched a campaign to catch me while I was vulnerable and try to get rid of the strongest Hero, Kang Hansoo.
Otherwise, my evaluation as an A-class Hero, which is more difficult to achieve than going to a prestigious university, couldn’t have changed this drastically.
That must be it, but…
The job of the Demon King was not bad.
I used the ‘Learn More’ feature.
[Demon King: An absolute being who reigns over all demons. Total control over demons below the rank of royalty. Comprehension of the skill Dark Energy will reach the maximum. You are innately very vulnerable to Divinity-type of skills. Also, the level will fall to match the Hero you are fighting. Please be careful.]
“Huh ~ The problem is Divinity and Heroes?”
Well, Divinity is not a problem.
I have always carried Divinity all over my body.
Even if I have been caught in the vulnerable-operation of Demon Fedonar, the heavens and the earth know that I’m a justful A-class Hero.
I guess I can get and start making guesses once I get into it.
But before that,
“It makes no sense to be a king and have only one servant!”
I decided to go get more underlings to use as a shield.
A surveillance camera is indispensable in modern society.
Where privacy was important, it was not installed, but it was built into some special ops combat suits.
Thanks to this, they noticed that they had failed to abduct prisoners.
From now on it is a fight against time.
I had no intention of defending.
Ever since i first set foot on Fantasia, my combat method was, with 17 years of experience, “You hit me once, I hit you once!”
Avoidance doesn’t suit me.
Attack and smash until you get rid of all the trouble.
That’s how I survived 17 years on the Fantasia continent.
“There are many customers who want to fall.”
Even in Fantasia, the reason for being vigilant of demon followers in all countries is because of how quickly they spread.
Evil power is easily available, and extremely enticing.
When you have a demon-like body, you have youth, health, strong body, long life, improved beauty, and high memory; a comprehensive set.
Beauties, conglomerates, athletes, scientists, old men, politicians… everyone.
Not specific to any kind of field, the power of the devil is attractive to everyone. As a result, supply cannot keep up with demand.
Earth was no different. No, it was more terrible because the earth had no evil power.
It is estimated that demand will explode.
“Spread the Dark Energy.”
“Yes, your majesty.”
Starting with the S rank demon, who was the commander, I focused solely on special ops surrounding the hotel.
Like the elites that they are, they trained the body and spirit with special training to the limit that ordinary people can reach, the special ops had nothing to reach beyond.
What they’re lacking is level.
This was a problem I could not do anything about.
“Ah! That isn’t so true I guess?
I decided to experiment straight away.
There were not only special ops around here. There were also many Heroes that belonged to places such as nations and secret organizations.
If you die, they probably won’t complain?
“This guy! Do you know where we belong to-? Kuek?!”
“Jo, your job is the Demon King? *Gag-?!”
“I am a therapist. I’m very useful- kyak?!”
I gave some thrashing for the Heroes.
They resisted with tremendous vigor and I overwhelmed them with just as much force I was given, but even then my level didn’t change in the slightest.
After all, the Demon King’s penalty did not apply.
“Huh~ A retired Hero is not a Hero?”
If the job is not a ‘Hero’, the penalty does not seem to apply.
What if this theory is true?
“The Demon King is not bad at all!”
There is no “Hero” on earth.
Graduates get new Jobs as they return to Earth.
In Fantasia, each of them was in the position of “protagonist.” It was not an exaggeration to say that the world rolls for that one person.
That’s why each dimension was a duplicated world to foster one Hero.
But Earth is different.
The truth is that students who grew up like plants in a greenhouse came out of ‘Fantasia’ and learned the bitterness of society in earnest.
Network, kinship, embroidery, appearance, political quality, relative evaluation…
They learnt the fear of this and realized that more geniuses have come and settled in the world while they thought they were the best.
This is reality.
The power of love and friendship is dust in front of a real A-class Hero, it was only dust.
Let’s teach the fear of society to those fake Heroes who graduated before me and were enjoying their cultural life.
With the fist of 17 years of experience and tears!
Drop, Puk, Flop.
The fake Heroes fell in front of me.
“Let’s start the experiment. Kill.”
“Yes, your majesty.”
The Demon Commander removed the Military Dagger from his arms. Then, after putting the S-grade Dark Energy on the tip of the knife, he pierced the soldier’s Adam’s apple without hesitation.
The Hero who was beaten by me was stretched out, could not resist, and let go of his life.
From now on it was important.
▷ Race: Arc Daemon
▷ Level: 71
▷ Job: Nobility
▷ Skills: Dark Energy (S), Murder (F)
▷ Condition: Growing
As expected, the level of Commander Devil has risen. But his job was not Hero, so his experience was poor.
For a start, it works.
The important thing is that the level has risen.
“It’s just good as a bargaining material.”
I did not intend to be satisfied here.
If you make a move, you should see it to the end. If you stop halfway along the way, you’ll see a lot of bad results, either retaliation or remorse.
What did I learn from that?
If you kill today, tomorrow will be safe!
I have increased the amount of S rank demons. If I infuse the Dark Energy some more, even SS ranks would be possible. It was encouraging for fierce competition and improvement to work efficiently that ignored labor law, such a plan was introduced.
“Listen, fallen things. If you want to reach SS rank, increase the amount of followers even more!”
The demons that received my orders scattered.
Their ideas were similar.
They moved quickly to corrupt their old bosses who gave them orders.
“Team Leader. It will be different now.”
“I want her to… Huh.”
This is another attraction of Dark Energy.
It doesn’t matter if your opponent is the president, gold spoon-fed or a senior citizen. If only Dark Energy’s rating is relatively high, then anyone can be made into a slave.
Anyone would have dreamed of it at least once.
Dominating your own superiors!
On Fantasia, there were many idiots who had hidden this desire and got exposed to it before.
Such as a sneaky commoner who tried to enslave a noble princess as a demon follower?
Obviously there will be many similar cases on Earth.
But for me it did not matter.
“I just have to spread the Dark Energy quickly.”
As a Demon King, new abilities were opened up.
I can see right away what my demons were doing.
I didn’t see and hear it myself, but I sensed it like a hidden camera hidden nearby.
Yes. It’s like…
‘It’s similar to what all those faculty members were doing.’
The demons have taken over all the ports and airports in the Third Pacific Marine-time city.
Armed with modern weapons, they were turned into demons followers with the demon’s Dark Energy.
Two become four, four become eight, eight became sixteen.
The epidemic was gradually accelerating.
Nevertheless, all this work was done very quietly.
There was nothing the Heroes could do.
It was similar to Sieg.
They noticed the demon follower after seeing the stats, but when the demon follower hid the wings and horns and acted like a regular civilian, then there was no way to prove anything.
No, what if you do prove it?
Earth does not kill or persecute people who have not committed a “sin”. How would you conclude that the demon is not human? What if they knew them as their neighbors and families?
In the meantime, the demons increased their number.
This was the result.
“Please come in, Master of Demons.”
“The worms that have attacked your majesty are gathered in this room.”
“This city hall is now your Majesty’s.”
I led the mermaid and headed to City Hall’s municipal building. This is why evil politicians are gathered here.
Politicians aim to secure alien prisoners.
Factoria, the general manager and mayor, was somehow trying to stop their ambitions.
Their conversation came to my ears over the sound barrier.
“I don’t know how many times I’ve already told you, but I promised the prisoners safety. Otherwise, this peaceful capture would not have happened. From the beginning it was an abuse of authority! Please follow the formal procedure if you want to ask for something.”
“We will guarantee the safety of the alien again.”
“Huh! What do you mean by abuse of authority! We are serious investors!”
“Chairman. I just left you with control.”
It was very noisy, with the nonsense of meaningless conversations.
Did they know that the future will not change at all, no matter what they conclude?
If they knew, they would have run away.
I stopped at the door of the conference room.
However, it was a meeting place with various representatives of the earth, so I got dressed up properly. I opened my collar and checked if my palm was slippery.
A sword in the right hand, and a sword in the left hand.
The equipment was perfect.
Behind me was the mermaid waiting to serve the king.
I was now ready to enter.
Dark Energy poured on the loyal guards who politely opened the boardroom.
“Who are you!”
“How dare you enter during a meeting…!”
“Kick him out quickly!”
Those gathered in the City Hall meeting room wore their hostility.
So I decided to keep quiet.
Z rank Dark Energy spreads around my body.
Now, the faces of the defenseless politicians gradually relaxed.
They came down to the floor from the chair they were sitting on. Then bowed their head again.
“I didn’t know it was your majesty.”
“I see you my king.”
These politicians as demons did not have wisdom amounting to an eye booger.
But just as sea turtles, which were just born from the sand and crawled instinctively into the sea, they naturally understood that I was their ruler.
Of course not everyone was a demonic follower.
“How, How could…!”
“What do you mean Demon King!”
“Who are you?”
There were humans who didn’t know the situation and were still sitting on their chairs. They were former Heroes having original fantasy abilities.
According to the pre-report by a demon who worked at the city hall, he is the representative or vice president of the world-renowned guild.
No wonder their level and skills are considerable.
The Z rank Dark Energy didn’t work with them.
But that doesn’t mean it will become a fight.
I don’t know if my level had dropped due to the Demon Lord’s Penalty, but I didn’t get the impression that I was overwhelming them right now.
Race, Level, Skill, Job, Condition.
There was nothing that wasn’t a match for them.
However, my stats weren’t visible to them, so they must have gotten the wrong idea.
That they can win.
“Demon King of the Earth! My name is-”
Drop, roll over.
The head of Hero B, who was standing up, rolled to the floor.
“Oh my goodness! My sword seems to have slipped, my bad!”
This was not an intentional accident. The light sword that was taken from the old prince rushes away and freely drops Hero B.
In other words, I did not know.
“Representative No. 3…”
“The strongest guild’s vice president…”
“The third man…”
Hero C, who was trying to add to the power of friendship, jumped and put his heavy butt on the chair.
Hero D and Hero E are also seated again.
It seems that they are ready to listen to the misunderstood Hero A’s words.
“Mr.Kang Han-soo, this is…?”
Nope, not ready, Factoria asked a question in a pathetic tone.
Though she is weak in power, I thought that her head was quite fine, but I overestimated her.
“Stupid. I’m cleaning up the case.”
I gave orders to fallen politicians. “Go back to your beloved homeland and make your colleagues your minions.”
This will even cleanly bring in star actors as well.
Politicians hurriedly exited the city hall meeting room.
“Yes. A-class Hero. ”
This little mermaid knew how to live a social life. Even though my job had turned into a Demon King, I was called a Hero.
I seem to understand a little bit of why the old prince liked her.
“Please recycle that trash.”
“As you said.”
The little mermaid moved her hand like a musician.
Her job is Black Magician.
She knew how to professionally handle bodies and ghosts. It was one of the jobs I really wanted to try.
The body of Hero B, whose neck was cut off, stood up like a tower.
He picked his head up off the floor and stood like an escort next to the master who gave him a false life.
The cut head struck a spooky voice, ignoring the body structure. The voice became cooler than ever before.
“What shall I do with you guys now?”
I could not just send the Heroes who attended the meeting away. It’s annoying that the black box’s oblivion doesn’t work.
Still, I reassured them with a smile.
“Please save me!”
“Easy there! I’m not eating- hm?”
At that moment, a blue flash of light fell from the sky.
Exactly over my head.
The strongly built city hall building exploded.
Demons and humans were swept away in the aftermath of the blue light, they screamed and died out, and the Heroes and Factoria got buried under the concrete ruins, because I didn’t find them at all.
The only thing that is safe is the little Mermaid who summoned Golem D like a shield and invalidated the general attack.
I frowned upon seeing the broken sword 2.
“This can’t even be paid for…”
At the moment the sword broke all the power was released and there was no DIvinity or Dark Energy left in the blade.
I stared at the main culprit.
And look at the job and skills burst into laughter.
