The other match of the top 16 was Catherine vs Thessaloni, a trainer with no empire. Thessaloni was a dark horse in this championship. As a member of the Belphegor Royal Family, even Isabella didn’t know this person. It should be a reclusive trainer who later moved out alone when the Breeze Shadow Empire was destroyed.
Thessaloni’s strength was only 1 step away from the kingdom level. Obviously, he wanted to explore the threshold of kingdomization through this competition. It should be said that he was quite lucky to meet Catherine.
Catherine was neither as cruel as The Fallen One nor as ruthless as Raizen, but she had her own plans. This time, she almost killed Thessaloni with an overwhelming momentum as soon as she started. After demonstrating her great strength, Her Majesty Empress offered an olive branch with the bait of guiding and helping Thessaloni enter the kingdom-level. Thessaloni considered it again and again before he finally agreed to join the Dark Shadow Empire.
This kind of aura to accept a follower and gain his respect in the face of battle could only be displayed by the main protagonist. Chen Rui could only express admiration.
Compared with the match that ended quickly with top beauty Catherine, everyone paid more attention to the battle between top powerhouse Raizen and The Fallen One.
Due to the advanced technology of the projection live broadcast, the audience could watch this suspenseful showdown in the arena.
Raizen – the Demon Realm’s number 1 powerhouse. Although this number 1 belonged to the category of ordinary powerhouses, Raizen had now clearly entered the lists of the super-powerhouse.
The Fallen One – a mysterious person of unknown origin with cruel methods. In the preliminary round, he instantly killed 199 players in the same field. In the first 2 quarter finals, he killed the peak stage of the Demon Overlord powerhouse twice. He should be a super powerhouse as well.
According to the division of the Demon Realm, the one who surpassed Demon Overlord was Demon Supremo. Therefore, this match of Demon Supremo vs Demon Supremo would be the strongest collision since the start of the championship.
Will the Bloody Empire Lord, who has always had a ‘peerless within the same realm’ title, be able to defeat the mysterious ‘The Fallen One’?
Everyone’s hearts were full of expectations.
In the ancient battlefield.
Wearing a dark red cloak, The Fallen One looked at Raizen at the opposite, and a strange voice sounded, “You should have been looking forward to this battle for a long time.”
“You think too much of yourself.” Raizen said coldly, “Your strength can only barely stand in front of me, but in my eyes, you have never been a real opponent.”
“So, who is your real opponent?”
“You don’t have the right to know.” Raizen raised his fist slowly as a faint purple light emerged from his fist, “I don’t have time to chat with you.”
“Really?” The Fallen One showed half of his face which seemed to have a strange smile, “It’s time for some matters to end too.”
Raizen didn’t speak anymore. The purple light flickered around his body while The Fallen One’s figure became hazy at the same time, allowing the purple light to pass through his body. However, the vast majority of the audience did not see the action clearly.
Only Chen Rui, Zola and others could see it clearly. Raizen had punched dozens of punches just now, but The Fallen One’s movements were extremely strange. The punches contained law power actually could hit him; they were all dodged and diverted away. The Fallen One’s counterattack was only 1 punch, but Raizen seemed unable to dodge it, so he took it directly. A layer of red crystals was wrapped around his arm, but it was shattered by Raizen’s punch in the next second.
The way The Fallen One moved made Chen Rui feel a little familiar. It seems that Sarandi has used it before, and I seem to have encountered it somewhere – Can The Fallen One directly absorb or imitate other people’s skills?
Compared with Sarandi, The Fallen One’s movements were more subtle and unpredictable, and his accomplishments were far better than Sarandi. Even in the face of a powerhouse like Raizen, he seemed to be able to use it at will.
The movements of the 2 sides were too fast, and the audience could only see it clearly through the slow-motion playback of the big screen of the magic television on all sides of the arena. They all exclaimed in belated amazement when the 2 people in the projection had already started a more intense battle.
In the probes just now, Raizen judged that The Fallen One’s strength level was the early stage of the kingdomized level while Raizen himself had now stepped into the intermediate stage of kingdom level. This was actually Chen Rui’s ‘credit’.
Raizen was endangered when his body was eroded by Teris’ special light and dark curse. Later, Chen Rui used the Snow Dallet Flower to cancel the light element’s power, but the power of the Snow Dallet was very strong and accumulated in Raizen’s body. Thereon, Dark Elemental King Hegel used the most quintessential dark element power to cancel Raizen’s dark element magic power. Raizen used the Bloody Ring’s power with Hegel’s dark element power as a reference, then he used the kingdom power to refine the Snow Dallet into 1 place. Under the special absorption of the Bloody Ring, a mutation similar to the fusion of light and dark occurred, which was a blessing in disguise for Raizen. Not long ago, he finally broke through to the intermediate stage of kingdom level.
Raizen moved his feet, and he instantly shifted and punched at The Fallen One. The punch was not fast, but it was simple and pure, and its power was far greater than the combined force of the previous dozens of punches. The Fallen One felt that he couldn’t dodge it. His figure moved several times, but he was still unable to dodge it. He could only extend his hand to resist it.
“Boom!” The ground under The Fallen One’s feet cracked, and The Fallen One’s body had numerous trembling overlapping images as if he was about to split into several people. The overlapping images merged into one again in the blink of an eye while Raizen was actually struck by some kind of force, which pushed him back for 3 steps.
The slow-motion playback showed that the overlapping image of The Fallen One was caused by the strange steps under his feet. Raizen’s punch actually hit the palm of The Fallen One’s left hand that he extended. However, when The Fallen One’s feet moved quickly in a seemingly disorderly manner, not only did he resist the punch, but he also simultaneously punched and knocked Raizen back with his right hand.
However, Chen Rui saw more things. The punch of The Fallen One actually borrowed the strength of Raizen itself. Using the opponent’s strength to fight!
This technique was very similar to Chen Rui’s [Water Profound Mystery], and even had a bit of the essence of [Water Profound Mystery] including the familiar pace. However, compared with the subtlety of [Water Profound Mystery], The Fallen One’s way of turning opponent’s power against them had greater momentum and was easy to activate. In all fairness, if Chen Rui himself were to use Raizen’s punch to fight back, it would absolutely not work as well as The Fallen One’s.
For some reason, a familiar feeling in his mind became clearer and clearer.
Raizen’s gaze had become dignified. Although it was only 2 simple rounds, his experience and intuition told him that this was by no means an opponent who could be easily defeated.
Raizen’s body revealed a breathtaking aura, and the little plains competition area where the 2 of them were located was instantly filled with rich blood mist which had encircled The Fallen One into the space of the kingdom. As The Fallen One waved his hand, the blood mist was filled with red lights like stars condensed from crystals.
Raizen sensed that the starlights carried a strange devour power, constantly sucking the blood mist in the kingdom, but Raizen didn’t panic or retrieve his power. His body flickered, and countless fists surrounded The Fallen One from all directions.
The Fallen One repeated his old tricks, turning into a phantom, trying to move away or borrow force, but under the effect of the blood mist, the movement became stagnant. A light flashed in Raizen’s eyes, and the fist shadows suddenly adjusted their direction inconceivably, sealing every corner of the phantom’s movement.
After locking the opponent, the kingdom power contained in the fist shadows exploded instantly, “Boom boom boom…”
Raizen had used 70% of his strength in this blow. The Fallen One would at least be severely injured.
At this moment, the exploding punch suddenly distorted in a strange way. It was disintegrated and diverted away in an instant, and The Fallen One was actually unscathed.
What caused all this was the countless red crystal lights around The Fallen One which merged into a long stream and hung upside down above The Fallen One’s head like a dreamy sky river.
Chen Rui was shocked and stood up involuntarily. He finally understood why he was familiar with The Fallen One previously! He also understood why Sarandi was able to survive.
Catherine, who had just returned to the rest area after the battle, happened to see this scene, and her calm dark eyes behind the veil revealed a strong shock.
The most shocked was naturally Raizen who was in the field. His face changed drastically as he blurted out, “It’s you!”
If the front was just some vague familiarity, then that flickering crystal sky river had completely revealed the mystery of ‘The Fallen One’.
[Dream Galaxy Territory].
The strongest territory of the great emperor who was famous across the Demon Realm in the past.
At that time, even an arrogant person like Raizen could only look up at the existence of this person.
That person was the goal he wanted to pursue all his life, and he was also regarded as his destined enemy.
When that person fell into the war with the human world, Raizen was not happy. Instead, he locked himself in the house for 3 days, not allowing even the woman he loved the most to approach him.
200 years later, that person unexpectedly reappeared in front of him with an unexpected identity. In that same unexpected battle, he who had already been kingdomized and Catherine almost lost their life in the hands of the person who was a mere Demon Overlord.
In the end, that man and his son’s life disappeared in his eyes.
Unexpectedly, he saw this person again today.
Right across him, as his opponent.
The former Fallen Angel Empire’s ruler and Demon Realm’s top powerhouse.
Midnight Sun Lucifer!
No matter what the reason caused this person to be reborn, Raizen only knew 1 thing, this person was now in front of his eyes!
No wonder he can match my intermediate stage of kingdom level strength with the early stage kingdom level!
“Hahaha!” Raizen laughed. It was not a sneer, a proud laugh, but a real laugh.
The Fallen One didn’t take the opportunity to attack. He just watched Raizen quietly.
In this martial battle championship, the majority of the audience were from the Bloody Empire. Including the empire generals and ministers, they invariably showed a surprised expression when looking at the laughing Raizen. In their memory, the top powerhouse ruler never seemed to laugh like this before.
After laughing a few times, Raizen stared at The Fallen One with unprecedentedly bright eyes. His whole body surged with a powerful fighting spirit as if he was reborn.
“You are right, I’ve been looking forward to this battle for a long time.” Raizen’s blood boiled, “Today, let’s finish it.”
The Fallen One’s hands slowly flattened, and the flow of star river on his head became more and more turbulent, flashing with a dreamlike brilliance.
TL: Midnight Sun is back? What is he plotting this time?
