The emergence of the top 8 represented a step closer to the final battle.
Upper bracket: Raizen, Chen Rui, Lalaria, Zola.
Lower bracket: Catherine, Red Pipit, Paglio, Dodo.
The final winner would be 1 of these 8 people. At this stage of the martial battle championship, it was no longer an ordinary powerhouse battle, but a super powerhouse battle!
The quarter-finals were randomly rearranged, resulting in Raizen vs Lalaria, Chen Rui vs Zola in the upper bracket, Dodo vs Red Pipit and Paglio vs Catherine in the lower bracket.
Chen Rui was a little surprised by the result of this draw. He originally thought he would meet Raizen ahead of time, but Raizen was ‘lucky’ to be against the mustached flat-chested loli. Meanwhile, his opponent was his beloved Ms. Fairy Dragon.
There were only 4 quarterfinals, so each match was being live broadcast one by one.
After the draw lots, the first match was Red Pipit vs Dodo in the lower bracket.
Although in the battle of top 16 to top 8, Master Slime staged a counterattack of a loser, breaking through to the Kingdom-level to advance in one fell swoop. However, in the face of the Octopus King who had been on the peak stage of the Kingdom level for many years, Master Slime’s strength was still too tender.
Octopus King saw through Dodo’s strength at a glance, but he didn’t take him seriously. He waved his hand casually, and a circle of mist surrounded the slime. Dodo’s body began to freeze rapidly, and in the blink of an eye, he solidified into an ice sculpture of onion. As he breathed out, the ice sculpture turned into powder.
To Octopus King’s slight surprise, those ‘powders’ which should at least lose their ability to move quickly recondensed to Dodo’s appearance.
During Dodo’s battle with Roman, Octopus King had seen Dodo’s immortality. Now that he had experienced it himself, he could really feel the uniqueness of this physique. Neither physical damage nor element damage could really kill this bizarre creature.
The mist reappeared and Dodo became an ice sculpture for the second time. This time, Octopus King did not destroy the ice sculpture, but he directly froze the slime’s actions.
After a while, the solid ice layer made a cracking sound, and a sharp translucent blade actually pierced out from it.
Octopus King raised his brows. He had already used 30% of his strength. He didn’t expect Dodo to be able to break through the freezing power so quickly. Then, he saw a strange mouth appeared on ‘blade’ in an instant.
Octopus King thought Dodo would make some big moves, only to hear that mouth scream, “Surrender!”
Octopus King, “…”
A soft object like a gummy candy slowly squeezed out of the gap created by the ‘sharp blade’. It swelled into the shape of an onion as soon as it hit the ground with around 8 hands clasping the trembling body tightly, “I’m almost frozen to death! Surrender! Surrender!”
Anyone with a discerning eye could see that Dodo was very talented. If he could break through the ice block like this, he could at least fight for a few more rounds, but Master Slime didn’t think so. Master said that this opponent is very strong. Even the poison dragon is far inferior to him. Anyway, if I can’t win, I might as well suffer less and go back to enjoy my wine.
No doubt, without the pressure, even if he was promoted to the Kingdom-level, he was still the lazy and timid worm.
Compared to the first match, the second match was particularly striking because there was the biggest favorite to win the championship, Raizen. Raizen’s opponent was the strange loli, Lalaria.
The results of this match were generally considered to be not too suspenseful. Lalaria once shocked everyone and set a record in the screening round, but the subsequent matches were relatively mediocre. The most impressive thing was the scene where the dark elf girl fled and admitted defeat in the last round after being flirted by her opponent. In the audience’s impression, this was just an odd girl with good luck. She was impossible to be the opponent of the top powerhouse, Raizen.
Lalaria swaggered into the arena, looked at Raizen, who was as calm as a mountain, and said arrogantly, “I hate men the most. I don’t even bother to fight with a skinny guy like you, so I will let you punch me 3 times. If you can make me move 1 step, I will consider that you win.”
Even Raizen who had always been calm couldn’t help revealing a murderous intent in his eyes.
3 punches, 1 step?
By the way, and that ‘skinny guy’ name…
“Come on! Don’t waste my energy!” The flat-chested loli said impatiently, “I still want to have fun and beat that guy’s face!”
“Your mind tactics are very successful. You have already infuriated me.” A murderous intent surged out from Raizen’s eyes, “You will pay for this!”
“Bluffing with momentum?” The flat-chested loli said disdainfully, “I’m stronger than you!”
As soon as the words ended, Raizen sensed a terrifying momentum coming toward him. His murderous aura was actually completely suppressed, and he couldn’t help but take a few steps backward.
Raizen was really taken aback. His eyes suddenly became solemn. The opponent’s level of strength actually surpassed me – Peak stage of the Kingdom level?
“I have overlooked it. It turns out that you are a good opponent.” Raizen was completely serious, and his fist was instantly charged with great strength, then he launched a long-range punch at Lalaria first.
In Raizen’s mind, since she was an opponent worthy of a fight, he must do his best at all costs. He would not compromise or relent just because the opponent was a woman or even a ‘little girl’.
The fierce fist momentum came, and the wind pressure created caused the nearby leaves and gravel to roll back. The momentum was very shocking, but Lalaria looked away as if she was not bothered about it.
Just after the fist momentum approached the ‘little girl’, the powerful punch became weak in the blink of an eye. It turned from a stormy sea to a calm sea before it finally dissipated completely.
Raizen’s pupils shrink abruptly. Although this punch is intended to be a test, I’ve already used 70% of my force. The opponent didn’t even move a finger, and it was voided without a trace.
An absolutely formidable enemy!
Before the decisive battle with that person, I actually encountered a formidable opponent of this level!
Peak stage of the Kingdom level? Let’s try the challenge!
The entire battlefield was suddenly filled with surging blood mist. Raizen had activated the kingdom power without reservation.
“[Thunder Emperor Seal]!”
Raizen’s second attack was already an all-out attack, and it was his signature killing move.
After the fight with Midnight Sun, this punch was much more concise. Its power had also grown considerably. Wherever the fist momentum went, the enormous pressure caused many cracks to appear on the ground.
However, Lalaria still didn’t move, but she finally glanced at the purple fist. There seemed to be a ray of light flashing in her eyes. “Boom!” The ultimate move [Thunder Emperor Seal] was actually completely voided under this gaze.
Raizen was shocked: Too powerful! What kind of strength is this? She crushed the [Thunder Emperor Seal] with just a gaze!
Can the peak stage of the Kingdom level reach this extent?
Impossible! Is it…
An unbelievable guess flashed past Raizen’s mind.
When the mustached loli heard these 2 words, she laughed, and the whole projection began to vibrate violently.
On the ground surrounding her, numerous cracks spread rapidly, and a pressing momentum suddenly erupted. Raizen’s body was quickly pushed back involuntarily. His feet dragged shocking traces on the ground, and he was finally blown away for hundreds of meters.
The astonishing laughter echoed across the whole city. It was heard even at the arena side. The clouds in the sky were flying away, and the projection was already blurred. Even the big screen of the magic television had a brief interference because of some kind of terrifying strength.
Catherine sensed the great strength in the laughter and couldn’t help being shocked. Even Octopus King Red Pipit also stood up as his facial expression changed.
The momentum gradually converged into Lalaria’s body. Raizen’s figure appeared not far in front, and his eyes were full of shock. This strange girl is actually a Demi-God!
The gap between Kingdom and Demi-God was far beyond the ordinary big realm difference. Which could only be described by the word ‘out of reach’. Raizen was very clear that he had no chance of winning, “Why, skinny guy? Lost the courage to attack?” Madam Lalaria looked disdainfully at Raizen.
Raizen took a deep breath and the words sounded in his ears again. You will go further than me.
The blood mist, which had been suppressed and almost disappeared, became richer than ever before. It was burning like a flame just like the fighting intent in Raizen’s eyes. Due to the accumulation of overly vast strength, blood was gradually overflowing from his facial features, but his eyes became more and more burning.
The burning blood mist formed into a strange hand gesture. The index and middle fingers of the fist were raised; the thumbs were slightly clasped inward.
“[No Me Seal]!”
“Not bad.” An admiring expression flashed past Lalaria’s eyes, “The power of this punch is already quite close to the peak stage of the Kingdom level.”
After Lalaria said the word ‘not bad’, [No Me Seal] had already rushed toward her face with overwhelming strength. The flat-chested loli stretched out a hand and pinched in the air, and the [No Me Seal] collapsed instantly like burst balloon. At this time, she happened to say the last word of the sentence – ‘level’.
Raizen gasped violently. This blow had consumed almost all of his strength, but it was easily canceled by the opponent. This was the absolute strength.
“Give it up, Raizen.” Lalaria did not use the word ‘skinny guy’, “You should be well aware of the gap between us.”
“You took 3 of my punches.” Raizen tried to adjust the rhythm of his breathing, “Now, I’ll take 1 punch from you.”
“Are you sure you can take it?”
Raizen didn’t say anything; he just put on a defensive posture.
Lalaria stared at Raizen for a moment, seeming to be a little more serious. She took a few steps forward, then she suddenly turned around and punched casually.
This punch seemed to be innocuous, but even Raizen had goosebumps as he sensed an extremely terrifying power as if a peerless beast was coming toward his face. In this instant, everything in the entire ancient battlefield was collapsing and disintegrating. It was simply doomsday.
Raizen shouted loudly, and the strength of his whole body soared to the top to face this ‘ferocious beast’. The moment the 2 met, Raizen felt 3 words- Unable to resist.
His soul trembled and annihilated little by little. His will was also on the verge of collapse. Raizen shouted again. Both his soul and life burned, resisting the force of this collapse.
After some time, before his life was exhausted, the terrifying strength finally gradually dissipated.
The blurred vision became clearer. He saw Lalaria in the distance slowly withdrawing her fist. The ancient battlefield did not collapse, but the cracks on the ground and the weak body that almost collapsed told Raizen that it was definitely not an illusion just now.
It’s just a casual punch. If it wasn’t for her mercy, I would have been annihilated.
Is this the strength of Demi-God?
At least I have seen the way forward.
“You will go further than me.”
The words sounded in his ears again. Raizen clenched his fists with his last strength as if clenching the promise of a life, then he fell down.
Almost all the audience was in an uproar. Only the Dragon Island’s braindead fan club remained firm, “Sir Lalaria, love you to death!”
The 2nd match of the quarter-finals was the least well-received since the start of the game.
The top powerhouse, Raizen, was defeated!
Lalaria advanced to the top 4!
