427. War of the Gods (4)
Before I knew it, I had entered the center of the Western Front using the black magic [Closing Vortex], and a demonic man was making an exaggerated voice.
─I can feel it… … !!
─There is no way the Great Demon God would give this much power unless he wants to elevate this Zebram to a level 72 demon… … !!
─Hahaha-! at las-! The day has come when this Lord Zebram will ascend to that lofty throne! It’s a hierarchy that can’t even be a match for ancient gods other than the Great Demon God!!
For some reason, it seems like a demon male calling himself Zebram is going on a rampage after receiving some useful power from a demon god… … .
─Now, die before the power of the devil lord chosen by this Zebram─!
It was absurd.
‘It’s the power of the chosen devil… … ?’
At this point, I almost burst out laughing.
It was worth it.
In this universe, the gods of darkness, demons, and dragon gods are closer to the losers who have existed since ancient times.
Well, since we know how powerful the Demon God is, even if he is an ancient god, if he is greatly favored by the Demon God, he should not be treated carelessly.
But isn’t that a story that only works on the premise that one is favored by a demon god?
‘Well, at a glance, it doesn’t seem like he’s receiving that much power from the demon god… … .’
In fact, in my opinion, the power possessed by that demonic man named Zebram could not be called so amazing.
‘Could it be that he really thinks he is the demon lord chosen by the demon god?’
If I were to be specific, I would say that among the higher-ranking gods, he would be similar to, or a little less powerful than, those who have achieved a high level of hierarchy and strength.
‘He’s so weak.’
Probably, if it were a demon god that we know, after seeing that demon lord named Zebram installed like that, he would take back every bit of power he gave me in a split second.
Was that why?
Before I knew it, I was standing on the dry, twisting land of the Western Front and expressing derisive sentiments.
Somehow, after listening to the devil lord named Zebram talk nonsense that had no conscience at all, I wanted to do that.
“To dare to say such a thing to someone who is at most only slightly stronger than the higher-ranking gods… … .”
This is with an infinitely honest heart.
“By the way, being able to say such delusions without shame, such as being the chosen devil lord or being recognized by the devil as one of the 72 devils, is a feat.”
But… … .
“you… … !!”
Was that quite annoying to hear?
“dare. “Do you think you can live well after such a trivial provocation against Mr. Zebram?”
In the blink of an eye, Zebram let out a fierce roar, scattering thick magical energy from his entire body.
“Not just a demon lord or a demon, but something so lowly that dares to insult Mr. Zebram like that… … !!”
Oh my gosh!
In an instant, a storm of demonic energy poured down on the land.
At best, it was not any kind of black magic or supernormal ability as a demon lord, but rather a simple expression of demon energy itself, but it was still powerful in itself.
It is the power of the Demon King, who has received a little bit of the Demon God’s grace, which unilaterally pushed the higher-ranking gods of the orderly side into a defensive position in the War of the Gods.
Coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo co!
“Hey! A mean thing—! I will make you, Mr. Zebram, tear your limbs to pieces and kill you… … !!”
In fact, in this war of gods, if they were high-ranking gods on the western front, they would have had no choice but to be crushed by that enormous demonic energy.
“Transcendence Myth <Spirit Attunement> is activated.”
“From now on, the divinity effect of <Indomitable Attack> will be added to challenger Han Seong-yoon’s divinity use.”
「※By designating an opponent, all types of status can become equal to that opponent for [4 minutes].」
「※However, if you are unable to withstand the burden accumulated due to the increase in rank, the power of <Spirit Indomitable> may be stopped.”
“From now on, the sacred effect of <Self-Adjustment> will be applied to challenger Han Seong-yoon.”
「※It becomes possible to freely control and manipulate the spiritual powers that one possesses.」
「※You can control formless power with spiritual power and apply the effect of spiritual power to that power.」
step… … .
「… … .」
“Skill ‘King of Ten Thousand Demons’ is strongly activated.”
“You can absorb all magical energy and convert it into magical energy.”
Isn’t that the case if I remain at the level of a high-ranking god or a formal god and have no particular resistance to demonic energy?
In an instant, the skill ‘King of Ten Thousand Demons’ is activated, and the overwhelming amount of magical energy that pours out in all directions is converted into magical energy within the body and disappears.
That too, very neatly.
“What is this… … ?”
Is that why?
“Uh, why… … ?”
Suddenly, a look of embarrassment that could not be hidden appeared on Zebram’s face as he looked down at him.
“How on earth can you handle the demon power of the chosen demon lord when you are such a lowly being that was not even chosen by the demon god…? … !!”
I guess I don’t understand why they took the initiative of the demon energy from that side and absorbed it into the body with the skill ‘King of Ten Thousand Demons’… … .
“You said it’s a demonic energy that only the chosen demon lord can handle, right?”
I gave him a light laugh as if I was dumbfounded and continued to reply.
“Is there any need to ask me more when you have already given me the most accurate answer?”
It’s really a simple story.
“Don’t talk nonsense anymore about how you are a demon lord chosen by a demon god.”
“The god of transcendence and death looks at the clumsy Demon King and smiles.”
[ ─Because being the chosen demon lord is a term that suits me rather than you. ]
If you really think about it, isn’t this person also a kind of demon lord?
In an instant, a major demonic storm broke out on the Western Front.
【 Lerajie’s Polluted Storm 】
Countless green raindrops made of demonic energy, which felt somehow strange, were shooting down from the sky to the ground.
Tou doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo!
One of the high-level black magics bestowed on Zebram for the first and last time by the Demon God, the one and only master of the Demon World.
Zebram let out a roar of rage with murderous intent and hatred in his bright red eyes.
“How dare you say that someone who wasn’t chosen by the demon god and doesn’t even know what it is, is the chosen demon lord—! “Are you talking like that?”
In fact, being the chosen Demon King is a source of pride for Zebram, who has never received even a single glance from the Demon God.
“I’ll tear you to death!”
And, for that reason, the fact that his pride in being the chosen Demon King, which he could not pass on to anyone, was damaged was something that could not help but be felt as a great humiliation.
Coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo.
An enormous amount of magical energy comparable to that of the sea, which cannot even be compared to ordinary demons or demons, wipes out the earth like a black tsunami.
Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… … !!
But even so, it doesn’t reach the desired destination.
“The god of transcendence and death laughs at a clumsy demon lord.”
[The chosen devil? ]
Suddenly, Han Seong-yoon was smiling crookedly, with his entire body covered in the magical energy he had collected from Zebram.
[ this? ]
“… … !!”
No matter how powerful and vast it is, it just scatters without any meaning in front of it.
“Damn it, where are the damned high-ranking gods of the Chaos faction and what are they doing! Come on, tear that nasty bug to death!”
At this point, Zebram could not have been unaware of this fact, so rather than opposing that unknown and annoying enemy alone, he called upon higher-ranking gods with divinity.
[ this-! Where is this trash from the demon world giving orders to this great God of the Sea?! Even if you don’t do that, I will be able to kill that guy! How unpleasant! ]
[ Tsk. It’s annoying. I never thought there was one among them who could stand against a demon lord of that level. If we don’t deal with it quickly, we’ll be in trouble. ]
[ doesn’t care!! Anyway, the hypocrites of the law camp over there are just remnants of the defeated soldiers… … !! What can a guy like that do? Just kill him and that’s it!! ]
Although it cannot be compared to the ancient gods who are the lords of this universe, even the higher-ranked gods were beings with power too strong to be called the rulers of a planet.
Numerous divine supernormal abilities, black magic, and magic made up of pure mana are poured out, aiming for just one thing.
“The sacred <Remorse> is used.”
“It can interfere with the past concept of time.”
“However, if the interference is unrelated to the user of Holy <Repentance>, the Holy Spirit’s activation will be cancelled.”
But… … .
Blah blah blah blah blah-.
It slows down.
[What is this again!? ]
[ Rain, damn it! Uh, why isn’t the divine supernormal ability working properly? Damn it!! Sashimi, it’s not even recovered! ]
[No way, this… … !! Poetry, did you slow down time itself? Plus, do you just designate the space around where you stand? What a ridiculous thing to do!! ]
Without exception, none of the divine supernormal abilities, black magic, or magic made of pure mana were fixed in the air.
“The power skill ‘Holy Light’ is activated, creating starlight imbued with divine <death>.”
That’s not all.
Before he knew it, Han Seong-yoon was using his divine <Remorse> to prevent divine abilities, black magic, and pure magic from reaching his entire body, and starlight was blooming from his two swords.
That too, the strange starlight that feels so ominous somehow, as if it contains death itself.
“The exclusive effect ‘Double’ of the power skill ‘Holy Source Demon Sword’ is activated.”
“Consume divine power to increase the power skill power by  times.”
The incredible starlight of death spread along the blade in all directions.
It is a divine power that embodies the concept of absolute death, which is beyond mutual understanding and should not exist anywhere in this universe.
[ Kwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… … !! ]
[Whew, wow! Can the status of poetry and divinity be this high? … ? Wow, even if he was a high-ranking god, he wouldn’t be this strong… … !! Well, it doesn’t seem like this is the only way to become an ancient god. ]
[Oh, it’s an ancient deity… … ? Oh, that’s ridiculous! I have never heard of such an ancient deity anywhere… … ! Wow! ]
Although there were quite a few who had been grazed by the divine starlight or suffered minor injuries, they were all now showing an uncontrollable fear.
[A new, new ancient deity has been born? Well, that’s something I’ve never heard of before anywhere! Well, something is wrong… … . ]
[ Heh, heh haha! Well, what does that matter now!! Oh, you have to run away! If we keep doing this, we’ll all die! Oh, you have to run away to survive! I-I have to go! ]
[Wow… … !! What happened to the concept of poetry and divinity? … ! Ugh, why does it feel like my whole body is on fire even though I just touched the divine supernormal ability!! I wonder if I can beat something like that! ]
They are like prey facing a predator that they cannot possibly win in the first place.
Winners and losers change in an instant.
“You guys! Where are you going! I, I am the one chosen by the demon god! This is Zebram! “If you run away from this place, I will tell the Demon God and consider it a betrayal.”
In reality, there was no difference.
[Shut up!! That is an ancient god!! He’s immortal, he’s a monster! At least bring that handsome demon to this place right now! Otherwise, it won’t pay off! Damn it!! ]
Just seeing Han Seong-yoon standing still, the higher-ranking gods were all screaming and running away as if they were so scared.
“The god of transcendence and death looks leisurely at a demon lord who does not look like a demon lord.”
[ ─Did you say it was Lerajie’s polluted storm? ]
[ To be the Demon Lord chosen by that Demon God, he didn’t have anything right, from the basic manipulation of Demonic Energy to his understanding of Black Magic. ]
It was then.
[ Still, this one was pretty good. ]
[ therefore… … . ]
Coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo on.
Suddenly, the vast amount of magical energy that Han Seong-yoon had radiated from his entire body turned into a single black magic.
【 Lerajie’s Polluted Storm 】
[ ─I will put this to good use. ]
In an instant, green meteors completely covered the sky.
It is to the point where it can be said to be on a different level from Zebram, who was given only weak power by a mere demon god.
And what that meant, everyone on the Western Front knew.
Temple and Friends and Fruits and Fruits ───!
It was extinction.
