This championship was broadcast live to the entire Demon Realm. The elimination of the top powerhouse, Bloody Empire Lord Raizen, shocked the entire Demon Realm.
Only a few people such as Chen Rui understood that there was no suspense in Raizen’s defeat in the face of the Demi-God-level Lalaria.
‘Top powerhouse’ was actually only relative to the ordinary level. After entering the super-level, this title was actually no longer suitable for Raizen. It was like the world’s number 1 martial arts master who became a cultivator and entered a brand new world. If he wanted to get the top title again, everything had to start from scratch.
This defeat was not a bad thing for Raizen. Instead, he could get rid of some mental obstacles and go further.
Lalaria became famous from that match and became the biggest favorite to win the championship, but the weirdo loli who insisted that ‘I am a man’ didn’t care about it. In her mind, there was nothing more important than defeating that hateful Chen Rui.
Next came the 3rd match, Catherine vs Paglio.
The field was also randomly selected. This time, the battlefield for the 2 of them was a hill near a small lake.
Looking at the mysterious beauty wearing a veil on the opposite side, Paglio’s eyes flashed with a high fighting spirit. After the training in the Dragon Island, the poison dragon had entered the Kingdom level. Originally, he wanted to fight against Raizen initially to revenge the defeat in the Warlock Fortress, but he was assigned to the lower bracket.
In the lower bracket, the strongest should be Octopus King Red Pipit. Paglio had heard Chen Rui talk about the strength of King Red Pipit, and he knew that he was not an opponent, but the empress of the Dark Shadow Empire should have advanced to the Kingdom level only 2 years ago. Although her reputation as the second powerhouse, top sage and top beauty was extremely established, it still wasn’t enough to scare off Master Poison Dragon.
“I don’t like to attack women. Beauty, give up early, alright? If you don’t mind, let’s find a place to drink wine and have a chat?” Even if he knew that the person opposite was the Dark Shadow Empire’s empress who was famous in the Demon Realm, Master Poison Dragon still unceremoniously teased her.
There seemed to be a smile behind Catherine’s veil, “As long as someone doesn’t mind.”
“No matter who he is, I will let him not mind.” The poison dragon grinned and raised his fist.
Don’t mind your ass! Someone couldn’t help but grit his teeth.
In fact, the poison dragon knew that Catherine was not a simple opponent, and it was even more impossible for her to admit defeat immediately. On the surface, he was being flirty, but a powerful poison sneaked into the ground under his feet and silently went toward Catherine.
Since she was the opponent, it was Paglio’s style to do everything possible to knock down the opponent, even though unscrupulous methods. Back then, Chen Rui, a rookie, learned from Paglio that the trick that gave up the fanciness was the most concise and ruthless. It was also the most effective means of attack.
When Paglio said a few words just now, the ground beneath Catherine’s feet suddenly collapsed. The foundation of that circle of land seemed to be instantly turned into a terrifying quagmire with a green mist.
This was only on the surface, the real poison had completely infiltrated into her body before this.
Catherine seemed to have lost her mobility for a while due to the lethal poison. She fell into the poisonous quagmire. Many fans in the auditorium screamed.
Paglio’s surprise attack succeeded, but he looked shocked suddenly. His body flickered and appeared in mid-air. Almost in the next second, a figure below broke out of the ground and made a hole.
This method was exactly the same as Paglio’s sneak attack just now. It could also be regarded as retaliating with the same move.
This figure was a golden human figure of approximately 2 meters high with red eyes flashing. The facial features were somewhat blurred, and mysterious inscriptions were engraved on the whole body.
The highest grade war puppet of the Asmodeus Royal Family – Golden puppet!
Not only the 1 on the ground, but 3 identical golden puppets surrounded Paglio. In the air opposite, Catherine’s figure was looming as if she was ethereal.
The poison dragon was slightly surprised. She is really worthy of the first sage title. Not only did she see through the sneak attack, but she almost succeeded in counterattacking.
As Catherine pointed at Paglio, the 4 golden puppets turned into 4 swift golden lights that flew toward the poison dragon at the same time. Paglio had no fear. He turned into a green mist, wrapping the golden light in it.
The green mist had a powerful Kingdom power, and the 4 golden lights suddenly dimmed. Before they were nearly extinguished, countless golden lights burst out suddenly, interweaving into a golden giant net which divided the intangible green mist into thousands of tangible broken pieces.
The pieces that were scattered all over condensed into Paglio. At the same time, the golden giant net twisted and turned into a brand new shiny golden puppet, rushing toward Paglio with a speed and power that surpassed the previous one.
“Bang bang bang…” The sound of dense and high-speed strikes came, and the 2 figures quickly exchanged hits in the air. Although the position was quite far from the ground, cracks continued to appear on the ground under the enormous pressure. As the water in the small lake set off a huge wave, Paglio became more and more frightened. In the Warlock Fortress back then, Catherine had activated [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] which moved Raizen, but now Catherine had neither personally attacked nor used the legendary strongest puppet; she was just using 4 golden puppet secret techniques to combine them into a shiny golden puppet. Yet it was on par with him, a Kingdom-level powerhouse!
In just 2 years, it seems that the Dark Shadow Empire’s empress must have undergone some remarkable changes. Her strength is unfathomable. I only entered the Kingdom-level 2 years later than her, even if I have the talent of dragons, my strength is still far inferior.
Having understood this, Paglio’s expression became more and more focused. He had completely put away the arrogance of dragons. On the journey of training, there is no undefeated powerhouse. Sometimes, failure is a precious accumulation. Being able to test the results of training in front of such a strong opponent is a rare opportunity in itself.
Thinking of this, Paglio calmed down instead. He shouted loudly, flew to the small lake, and plunged down. The water in the small lake splashed, and countless green mists spread rapidly, covering the entire battlefield. In the Kingdom of the poison dragon, all the plants withered and died in an instant. Even the hard ground and rocks were eroded by the terrifying poison and lowered layer by layer.
When the shiny golden puppet punched the small lake, it made a huge hole in the water that could not be filled. The hole continued to spread, and the lake water quickly evaporated into poisonous gas.
In the blink of an eye, the entire small lake had dried up, but Paglio was nowhere to be seen.
Just as the shiny golden puppet was looking for the enemy, 2 huge clusters of fluorescent light suddenly appeared in the mist that filled the sky. They were a pair of huge eyes. Corresponding to the huge eyes were the huge beast condensed by the mist which engulfed the shiny golden puppet.
In the process of being engulfed by the huge beast phantasm, the surface of the shiny golden puppet began to corrode rapidly. When the huge beast threw the puppet to the ground, it dispersed into smoke. The shiny golden puppet was already broken and dull. With a ‘bang’, it scattered into 4 broken figures, which instantly evaporated into smoke and disappeared.
After Paglio took down the shiny golden puppet with a big move, he was about to take advantage of the situation to attack Catherine, but he suddenly froze and stood still.
“You still want to fight?” A calm voice came from behind.
Paglio clearly felt that he was locked by a great power which was overwhelmingly powerful, and he sensed an unbeatable feeling in his heart.
At this time, in the highly poisonous kingdom shrouded in green mist, a little bit of greenery began to bloom one after another. Those plants that had withered and died began to revive again. Even the lake water turned back to liquid and became clear.
Those deadly poisons were instead converted into nutrients by some strange power.
This scene made the poison dragon show a bitter smile. He no longer intended to be entangled with her in the fight. He shook his head decisively, “I admit defeat.”
Paglio was clear that the strength gap between them was very huge. Catherine was merciful and did not use her real strength. Otherwise, if she used a killing move at the beginning, he had no room for resistance at all.
In the third match, Catherine won and advanced. Many fans breathed a sigh of relief.
According to the intel given by a certain slime after the match, the recording of Master Poison Dragon’s previous flirting with Her Majesty Empress was forwarded to Ms. Emerald Dragon by a mysterious man, and he also reported some previous secret violations. The next day, Master Poison Dragon’s face had a few claw marks. The official explanation was ‘I scratched it accidentally’.
Round 4: ‘Aguile’ vs Zola.
Well, this was the most unbelievable match so far.
The 2 participants who were supposed to be fighting intensely stared at each other for a while as if they were looking for flaws in each other (actually, they were affectionate).
Finally, Zola walked toward ‘Aguile’, and ‘Aguile’ was motionless as if his mind was enchanted by some spirit magic. Just when everyone thought that Zola was going to take the opportunity to make a big move, Ms. Fairy Dragon no doubt struck. She hugged the guy’s neck, and their bodies stuck together at zero distance.
[Death Embrace]? Throwing skills?
After a while, Ms. Fairy Dragon disappeared from the arena.
Only then did the audience react. Zola conceded defeat! ‘Aguile’ directly advances!
Wow, this is the quarterfinals!
Moreover, ‘Aguile’ is the prince consort of Shea, the Fallen Angel Empire!
The mysterious and powerful female magician, Ms. Zola is actually the lover of the Fallen Angel Empire’s Prince Consort Aguile!
This scene became the focus of heated discussions in the Demon Realm for some time. Especially in the Dark Shadow Empire and the Bloody Empire newspapers where even the reserved front pages were full of gossip headlines.
A certain pretty boy prince consort + kept man skill has reached its peak, winning without a fight to enter the semi-finals!
Prince consort cheating! The crown on Her Majesty Shea’s head looks green!
Mysterious Miss Magician publicly challenged Her Majesty Empress…
Chen Rui could only smile bitterly. Zola didn’t like to be in the limelight, but these gossip news made Ms. Fairy Dragon very proud.
In any case, the toyboy Royal Highness Prince Consort made it to the semi-finals.
The semi-final matches were: Red Pipit vs Catherine; Chen Rui vs Lalaria.
This would be the real battle and test.
