The Elf Hero didn’t really look like a bodybuilder, but he developed an inverted triangular upper body that is unlike most elfs.
Should I say it’s reminiscent of a strong leopard?
The clothes were based on a black long coat and his attire was that of a mercenary.
And the sword…
Excluding the job and stats, “He’s a Hero!” one can feel such a vibe overflowing, and the uniform and monotonous attire he looks like a typical fantasy native Hero.
But this elf is not an ordinary savage.
Unlike a Hero that is lukewarm with dreams and hopes filled to the brim, he was a real deal that is pursuing pragmatism.
Then the Elf Hero talked.
“You are… not Pedonar.”
There was really a warrior who misunderstood me as a Demon King. Since I’m leaking out much Dark Energy like this, it can’t be helped but misunderstood I guess?
Opponent is a warrior with a Sword (Z) Rank.
If his body is weak, I could deal with it, however his Endurance is (Z) rank. It seems that he would not die just by getting hit unilaterally.
“So, who are you?”
“There is no need for a name for those who are about to die.”
His willingness to fight was clear.
“But I’m not the Demon King Pedonar as you just stated?”
“It does not matter even if you’re not. I am obliged to punish when the Demon King sealed in the fantasy world comes to reality. To do that, I needed to fix the level, and raise the skill. But it was always a question. Can I defeat the Demon King in this way… ”
Based on my experience, he would beat me 100 out of 100 times. Not that I would ever say that out loud.
No, there was no time for that.
It was because the Elf Hero kicked the ground and started to approach.
His speed was not that fast.
“Ah! You crazy… ! ”
However that also applies to me too. Falling to level 100, my body dulled overall.
However, it was not to the point of not being able to react to the movement of the evlen warrior, but the problem was approaching the foe.
“I will test if my preparation was not in vain or not, New Demon King.”
“Don’t get cheeky with me!”
I canceled the summoning of Holy Sword 2, which was broken and bothersome.
Then I responded with the light sword.
The face of the fairy warrior hardened as he saw the shining purple radiance.
“That’s… Latest Dark Energy Sword. I don’t know which noble man you killed to obtain it, but it doesn’t work on me, the owner of the Holy Sword Nucleon.”
As soon as the two swords collided, our bodies shook.
Then the festival of skills began.
While I was confronting Holy Sword Nucleon, the Elf Hero moved in a mysterious way, and he soon tried to dig deep into my abdomen.
This was not some special skill of his sword.
It was pure skill of the Elf Hero who has trained enough to reach the transcendental ZZ rating. His skill was at the point of outside of common sense and rules.
However, I also did not stand still. The transcendental realm is not exclusive to the Elf Hero.
I defended my abdomen by raising my Divinity instantaneously. Then I lowered my light sword in my hand.
You hit me once, I hit you once!
There was some sense of recklessness, but there was no other choice, because I knew there was no chance in winning without this kind of action.
Neither of us avoided this confrontation.
Because of our fighting style, we instinctively knew that the one who first tries to dodge would be falling on the losing side, this is inevitable because of our combat style itself.
“It really seems Endurance has not been trained normally…”
The Elf Hero’s Endurance (Z) is not just for show. Without the willpower to withstand pain and injury while not even raising an eyebrow, it’s hard to obtain it.
“I was raised while getting beaten up by my big sisters.”
The Elf Hero was smiling while talking. Somehow, it may not be because of a simple feeling that the smile looks so bleak.
We exchanged our swords again.
But the results were different this time.
My abdomen, protected by Divinity, was bypassed and the membrane was cut horizontally.
My lightsaber, on the other hand, scratched the shoulder of the Elf Hero. It was because the armor he wears is quite strong.
“What is this unfairness?”
“Did you think I would fight against the Demon King while naked?”
I couldn’t think of anything to refute.
Yes. The opponent was a Hero specialized against Demon Kings. He focused on strengthening himself, not with some unstable forces such as love and friendship.
More external than just stats.
So his armor was very well made.
It was not a can-like armor commonly used in Fantasia. It was a battle suit that would appear in science fiction in the near future.
It was very strong and flexible.
Oops! It was not time to relax.
“Kuk… ! ”
I, who was cut deeply in the abdomen, backed away a bit. I did block with my Divinity, but the Divinity itself was damaged by the formidable Holy Sword, possessed by the Elf Hero.
However the Elf Hero seemed to disagree.
“Amazing. I thought your waist would have been cut through by the blow, but you, the Demon King possesses the Divinity in the transcendental realm. Is that how you can easily heal your wounds? It’s amazing.”
“That’s what I want to say.”
The wounds opened by Holy Sword Nucleon narrowed bit by bit. It tried to burst every time I moved my waist roughly, but my regeneration was excellent, so it was not a problem.
However this did not improve the situation.
The exchanges continued.
Born as fragile elves armed with solid armor to compensate for the weakness, it was not just annoying.
This couldn’t have happened in Fantasia.
The stronger the armor, the heavier and less flexible. The agility of the elf race would no longer be able to be utilized.
But the power of science was awesome.
Of course, this is also because of me falling to level 100. If i was around level 500, then it would have been meaningless with or without armor.
It’s the same whether it be paper or steel.
But my level fell to 100 which was just annoying. There was no way to break through that armor.
So I decided to call reinforcement.
Summoned a pretty houseware golem.
“Boris… ? That name is… . Gagging*-?!”
The elven warrior tried to say something, but he was kicked in his face by Boris and flew back.
A golem is not affected by the Demon King’s penalty.
No matter how powerful a ZZ rank skill that has reached the level of 100 is; the proper efficiency will not come out. So beating a level 999 golem with transcendental skills was almost impossible.
But I frowned.
“Hey. You should have just killed it in one shot.”
“You mean to kill the Swordsman teacher of the Royal Middle school? Even though I became like this, I will not participate in harming my country. But Kang Han Soo, I’ll help you earn the time to run away. Ha! To think that the day I must attack my esteemed teacher would come like this.”
“Not just attack, kill him.”
“Shut up. You inconsiderate Hero. If it weren’t for the first promise, you who kill my girls, I would have let you die here.”
I could not refute and just shut my mouth.
While doing so, I thought.
Boris says he’s a respected swordsman instructor.
It wasn’t a staff sent by the grudgeful fantasy god, but an assassin sent to deal with the Demon King by the First Hero.
Is the First Hero guarding against the resurrection of Demon King Pedonar?
Whatever it was, it’s absurd.
“Come! My friend!”
The Elf Hero took off the distorted helmet and shouted loudly.
And an elf woman 2 meters tall appeared.
With twin-swords in both hands, she possesses a physical figure that has a crooked and uneven chest.
The problem was not that.
“A golem for golem? It’s thorough!”
This woman was the Elf Hero’s golem.
He prepared very firmly to break the Demon King. The golems stats were also well developed.
▷ Race: Old Golem
▷ Level: 999+
▷ Job: Exorcist (Demon → Damage ↑)
▷ Skill: Twin-Sword (MAX) Dark Energy Resistance (MAX) Divinity (SS) Fortitude (S) Purification (S)…
▷ Condition: Holy Sword, Blessing, Enhance, Amplify, Overheat
It was dangerous, and it’s very much so.
Boris said in a nervous tone.
“It’s not the time to relax. Give me my sword back. Then I will buy you some time, somehow. This opponent is an old lover of the Sword instructor. She’s the daughter of Demon King Pedonar, a historical person that was killed. It’s not an easy opponent. And… Let’s stop talking. ”
He was to face the golem as a battle golem, even though he was designed for home-use.
I kind of want to say that.
I returned the lightsaber to the previous owner without asking or anything. For now I know that Boris is better than me with it.
But I did not return it to buy me some time to run away.
“Boris. Keep that golem nice and tight.”
I charged in while ignoring Boris’s rant.
Activated pure Dark Energy without Divinity.
By becoming a Demon King, my comprehension and ability to utilize Dark Energy has increased. When it was the sixth time battling the Demon King, I who was misunderstood as his “daughter’s boyfriend” was able to gain some experience from it, it helped.
I created a spear of pure Dark Energy.
I changed my approach to knowing that I couldn’t beat the Hero in a sword fight that has ZZ rank in Swordsmanship.
“You think it will be better this way!”
“Even I know that.”
All the Dark Energy that touched the Nucleon was easily destroyed.
But I expected this though.
I wasn’t disappointed nor did I give up. Thanks to the skill Infinite, I have unlimited Dark Energy available, so I squeezed it out without stopping.
And I just scattered it in the air.
Soon, the surroundings were full of Dark Energy. But I was not satisfied and continued to pour out even more.
While that happened, my body was in danger.
I was full of cuts and punctures from the Holy Sword.
However, as the Dark Energy sprayed into the air, it was reabsorbed into my body, and it constantly supplied me with new blood and flesh.
From nothing to creation.
The Demon King, the pinnacle of all Demons, was thus annoying.
That is why you need a Holy Sword.
“So that’s why Demon King is called a Demon King?”
The Elf Hero grinds his teeth and muttered.
“I was not so simple as to stick my neck and be cut.”
The curse of the Demon.
Whenever a fatal wound occurred to me, it cursed the Elf Hero. If I succeed in planting the Dark Energy, it’s guaranteed to be my win.
But this was also blocked by the Holy Sword.
“That Holy Sword. It’s really annoying!”
When I think about it, I was as well.
I’ve knocked out Demon Pedonar without the Holy Sword in the first round.
As a result, Dark Energy penetrated the body.
But no graduate, except me, fell to Dark Energy. For they fell the demon with the Holy Sword.
In other words,
Holy Sword Nucleon.
The Sword that-I-somehow-memorized-the-name-of was the only thing that needed to be dealt with.
“You, the Demon King, who deals with Divinity, is the one that’s annoying. There is no hope for you. She will break your golem and soon come to support me. Then it’s all over.”
The Elf Hero who kindly teaches me my terrible future.
“Thank you for the comment.”
I returned my thanks with Dark Energy in return.
Pew! Pew! Pew!
“Hmph! Then struggle until the end, Demon King.”
“Did your girlfriend die like that too?”
The infuriated Elf Hero’s Holy Sword destroyed my Dark Energy Spear. But I dealt with that by making a new spear, like it’s nothing significant.
I can’t win with a simple approach.
So I used a shortcut.
The scattered Dark Energy all around me became my attack.
Dark Energy Arrow, Dark Energy Chain, Dark Energy Hook, Dark Energy Tack, Dark Energy Fog, Dark Energy Lash, Dark Energy Bomb, Dark Energy Shield, Dark Energy Barrier…
Dark Energy turned into anything.
I dealt with the right means according to the situation.
The more I got used to dealing with Dark Energy, the more I was able to utilize it. It was a long battle, thanks to my being immune to divine attacks.
The hateful fate did not give me time to learn.
“Kek! Damn… If it were not a being from my country…”
Boris was not in good condition, because he was at the point of being discarded, and the summon was released.
What about the enemy?
“Demon King. Kill…!”
The Elf Hero’s golem rushed to me after defeating the houseware golem. Like an exorcist, she rejected all the Dark Energy and ran wild.
It’s a Demon’s natural enemy!
In addition, the skill and the level exceeding level 999… With Demon Lord’s Penalty in effect, I can not deal with her and try to be a strong man.
The probability that I survive here converges to 0%. Wait a minute!
I summoned Holy Sword 2.
And stabbed my heart without hesitation.
The broken blade dug deep. Originally, it had to be accompanied by tremendous pain, but that had nothing to do with me.
The Elf Hero and the golem jumped a little and stopped.
It was the face of incomprehension.
That can only be so.
I also did not notice when my Dark Energy’s understanding was low, but now I finally realize the truth after I faced the 6th Demon King Pedonar.
Dark Energy soared like a waterfall from my body, which was separated by Holy Sword 2, and it instantly covered the world.
As the purple eyes of the old prince did.
▷ Race: Chaos Human
▷ Level: 1
▷ Occupation: ■■ A
▷ Skills: Dark Energy (Z) Divinity (Z) Blessed (Z)
▷ Condition: Oblivion
All stats were sealed nicely.
“My lads. Should we play the second round fair and square?
From now on, we will put down unfair stats for a moment, and fight until our guts pop out with naked stats.
I, the organizer, was no exception.
The Just A-class Hero’s Wings were created on my back. The visual is a bit… but it’s not cheating.
