In what seemed to be a deadlock, the other four arms of the evil multi-armed king began to take action . It threw the balls of dark energy which it had previously condensed towards Reynolds, who was still stuck in the deadlock . If he were to be hit, he would surely be turned to ashes .
Gong Yi rushed in from the side, flying in a spiral-like motion and clutching a dagger in each hand . He was targeting one of the Evil King's heads, but a dark energy ball was sent flying toward his face the next instant .
Gong Yi was sent flying, as though he had been struck by bolts of lightning .
"I will get my revenge!" Sister Hong mustered up her remaining strength to deliver a final blow . She forcefully released her Blood Red Dharma Idol . The gigantic snake head snarled with a twisted expression, as though it was about to spit venom . However, it shielded Reynolds instead as it was too weak to do so .
Rumble! Bang, bang!
The phantom of the huge Blood Red Cobra was smited into oblivion . On the other hand, Sister Hong did not even have the time to react before she collapsed onto the ground . Her body lay soft and limp, with her life or death unknown .
Terrifying explosive shockwaves rippled outwards, only a few meters away from Reynolds .
Pa pa pa pa pa pa~
The blasts of air currents were like bullets . Even Reynolds, who was at the Initial Heroic Soul Stage and had a strong and healthy physique, would not be able to withstand it at all . As he was struck by the air currents, his head instantly spun . Alas, his mind remained clear as ever . Reynolds had little concern for his own life; his entire existence was based on delivering a promise to his family . However, as he watched Sister Hong shield him from the attack with her life, he was dumbfounded .
The ripples in Reynolds's subconsciousness immediately began to twist and distort, similar to a lighting bolt flashing across a dark night, cracking the endless and deathly silent night open .
Whether it was the air current blast, remaining power from the blast or heaviness of the bone whip…
All of them completely disappeared at that particular moment . Reynolds's mind grew blank and all thoughts disappeared . There was only one crazy thought coming from deep within his heart: it was for his soul power to increase to the maximum .
"Fuck you! Die, bastard!"
The original Heart Blade could already inflict heavy damage, but at this moment, its power surged with an extremely terrifying might . A huge unimaginable oppression dissipated within a split second, igniting his soul and building up a powerful attack that will surely kill the other party . With an original height of around six meters or so, the blade force was suddenly boosted by a few times, growing to a width of around six meters and a height of more than 10 meters .
The boosted blade force extended outward in the twinkling of an eye and slashed across the evil multi-armed king's face and its incomparably hard bronze skin split wide open . At the same time, the power of the blade force surged further, as though a powerful god from the olden days had flown into a rage, cleaving the sky and splitting the earth!
An impossible-to-withstand power pierced through the two bloody red whips and they were chopped into two . That was not all that was left from the enormous blade force . It chopped downward with lightning speed .
The evil multi-armed king's hairs stood on their ends . But this was a 5th rank Evil Demon with unimaginable quick reflexes, and in the blink of an eye, it managed to tilt its body sideways to avoid a direct impact .
Fresh blood splattered everywhere . This was truly Evil Demon Blood . Blood flowed as though it was water from an open tap, flew mid-air and then splattered on the ground . As one of its heads on the right side was split open, its corresponding two arms immediately sagged as they lost their controller . In a split second, the evil multi-armed king staggered backward violently and a terrifying dark energy engulfed the surroundings, which proceeded to wrap itself around the demon's wound . As black as jet-black ink, the dark energy stopped the bleeding instantly, and the evil multi-armed king was truly enraged this time .
It could not believe that these ant-like humans — lifeforms as puny as worms — could injure it so severely .
Reynolds gritted his teeth as he felt completely powerless . The previous attack was actually all the strength he could muster . It was a pity that the attack failed to kill the demon . This 5th rank Evil Demon was too crafty and had too-quick reflexes . At such high Heroic Soul Stages, to be higher by one tier did not mean that one would definitely have the upper hand . However, the top speed and reflexes could truly make people of lower ranks be filled with despair .
Sympathy and anger flashed across Reynolds's mind, but only for a split second . Following that, he felt extreme fatigue . The spiritual soul attacks of Heroic Soul Soldiers were rather similar to Dharma Idol attacks, both falling under the Soul Domination ability . They could be seen as extreme explosive attacks, and, as long as they are utilized properly, a soldier's original power could be boosted multiple times .
However, such attacks last for too short a time . Even one attack might expend all of one's Soul Power . To say that it would make people feel tired was an understatement . The overexertion might even damage the origin power of one's body or soul .
The previous attack had truly exceeded Reynolds's bodily control limit by too much, far more than during the battle with the 2-headed Cerberi . His consciousness blurred within a split second and he collapsed to the ground from mid-air, head facing downward .
The evil multi-armed king hated this human to the core, thus he stretched forward in an attempt to capture him . However, a sudden white light blinded him as a figure leapt in from the side at top speed . The figure caught Reynolds before he crashed to the ground and flew to the cliff wall across from them .
Due to being heavily wounded, the evil multi-armed king's strength and speed was reduced significantly, allowing the figure to save Reynolds successfully .
Wang Zhong then laid Reynolds's body on the ground . Having been thrown into a cliff wall previously, the bones in his body had nearly cracked . The combat strength of one at the Casted Soul Stage was utterly useless in this high-level battle . Such were the side effects of the Casted Soul Stage: needing time to increase one's strike .
At that particular moment, the surface of Wang Zhong's body glistened with a layer of faint silvery glow, radiating a much higher combat level, completely different from the previous moment . The evil multi-armed king was also furious; that thing which it had smacked into the cliff wall casually actually did not die and took advantage of its injured state, daring to appear in front of it again .
As it was about to smack Wang Zhong, it suddenly felt a stronger threat from behind .
It was Gong Yi???
His whole body sparkled with golden light as he condensed his power; at the same time, what seemed to be a phantom began to form behind him .
Gong Yi had a Dharma Idol as well???
Not only did he have one, but he was actually the most powerful person on the team . His Dharma Idol was human-like!
"Help me stall it, Wang Zhong!" Gong Yi said in a low voice . Even though his Dharma Idol was powerful, time was needed to boost his Dharma Idol to match such monsters . This was a problem his Dharma Idol faced when pitted against super powerhouses, but it might also be due to his low level .
Gong Yi's Dharma Idol took form . It was a smiling man in a suit, fiddling with… a pack of shiny cards . It was his Dharma Idol, God of Gamblers . [E/N: Chow Yun-fat makes an appearance???] If they were up against regular opponents, direct attacks would suffice . However, there was a need to shuffle the cards to select the strongest attack combination for a 5th rank dimensional lifeform .
Gong Yi started to drip with sweat . Sister Hong and Reynolds were already down; Little Xin was basically useless; there was only Wang Zhong left to fight the monster . How could it be possible for someone at the Casted Soul Stage to stall it? More importantly, the Evil King was smart enough to ignore Wang Zhong completely .
However, in the blink of an eye, a glow alternating between black and white appeared directly in front . Was it an aura of a Dharma Idol?
Wang Zhong was stunned . Even Sister Hong and Reynolds, who were on the verge of death, stared dumbfounded . What the hell just happened? How could someone at the Casted Soul Stage condense a Dharma Idol?
The evil multi-armed king was utterly confused . Heroic Soul Dharma Idols and soul tools etc . , were rather rare even amidst the hundreds-of-thousands-large human armies in the past . What the hell was happening? He had assumed that it would be a piece of cake to handle the mere five people he stopped, but unexpectedly, four of them were at a combat level capable of summoning Dharma Idols .
Most importantly, he sensed an even greater threat emitting from the black-and-white Dharma Idol .
