At the same time, he clenched his left hand into a fist, and secretly prepared the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯. This technique was the advanced version of the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯, and it was ultreffective when it came to dealing with demons. Song Shuhang was preparing to use this fist technique to test the strength of that demon of the Fourth Stage.
In the meantime, his right hand had already assumed the stance of the ❮Inverted Scale Saber Technique❯. Up until now, the defensive power of this 'defensive-type saber technique' had never let Song Shuhang down!
"Good! You defend, and I attack!" Su Clan's Sixteen said happily.
The huge demonic mosquito was very fast, and when it sped forward, it didn't fly in a straight line. Instead, it zigzagged left and right, and then up and down...
Apparently, it was using tactics while attacking?
However, Song Shuhang felt that it would have been better if the demonic mosquito had simply flown in a straight line and increased its speed in the process.
After all, the fact that it was zigzagging its way toward him didn't really cause him any annoyance.
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts, the huge mosquito suddenly disappeared from his sight.
The huge mosquito had suddenly accelerated and teleported next to Song Shuhang. The speed of that sudden acceleration surpassed the speed that Song Shuhang was able to react to.
The huge mosquito grinned, and used its long and thick mouthpart to stab Song Shuhang. If that thing were to hit him, Song Shuhang would get sucked dry in the blink of an eye.
Song Shuhang didn't panic, and brandished Broken Tyrant with his right hand. "Even if my eyes can't follow you, it doesn't mean that I don't have a way to get ahold of you!"
Song Shuhang unleashed the 'Dragon Scale Style' of the ❮Inverted Scale Saber Technique❯ that he had prepared in advance.
The saber technique turned into the scales of a dragon that protected all parts of his body.
The mouthpart of the huge mosquito bumped into those thick dragon scales made of saber qi. Its powerful attack was unexpectedly unable to break through Song Shuhang's defense!
How could a small cultivator of the Third Stage have such a powerful defense?!
The demonic mosquito was startled. After its first attack failed, it decided not to attack again. Instead, it flapped its wings and quickly retreated.
"Ahaha, don't' run. Our turn-based game has just started. You attacked me just now... therefore, it's my turn to attack now! Eat my fist!" Song Shuhang laughed, and unleashed the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique One❯ he had prepared in advance—Jingang Fall!
Of course... Jingang Fall was just a name that Song Shuhang had given to the technique.
The original creator of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ was probably affected by namephobia, and the moves of the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ and its advanced version didn't have any names. They were just called One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and so on.
Just as the huge demonic mosquito had retreated around one meter, Song Shuhang's fist exploded.
The liquefied Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Innate True Qi inside his body operated at full strength, and when he used the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯, it automatically coordinated with the light of virtue shrouding his body, creating the projection of a Buddha's warrior attendant around him.
The projection of the warrior attendant completely wrapped up Song Shuhang, and had the same appearance as his—even their clothes were the same. The projection of the warrior coordinated with Song Shuhang's movements and punched together with him, increasing the strength of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯.
The sound of buddhist prayers echoed in the surrounding area alongside the cry of a huge whale.
"An evil survivor of the Jingang Temple!!!" the huge demonic mosquito called out in alarm after seeing Song Shuhang's fist technique.
It seemed that the demons of the Netherworld were truly terrified by this Jingang Temple...?
The voice of the huge demonic mosquito had hardly faded when the aura of the golden fist swept over its body. Immediately after, all the evil energy of the Netherworld protecting its body was instantly blown away.
After losing the protection of the evil energy, the defense of the huge demonic mosquito was greatly weakened... and it was right at that time that Song Shuhang's fist and that of the projection of the warrior attendant pounded its body.
"Ugh~" the huge demonic mosquito shrieked as it was smashed against the ground (filtering net) after getting punched. Its demon blood gushed out from its mouthpart, and a washbasin-sized hole was left in the place Song Shuhang hit, with blood copiously flowing out.
The strength of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ was continuously increasing the size and severity of the bloody hole left in the body of the demon.
"Sixteen, this is your chance!" Song Shuhang called out.
After this first attack connected, Song Shuhang's confidence was boosted. He discovered that he had the capacity to battle against the demons of the Fourth Stage while they were weakened by the filtering nets of the scholars!
"I'm coming!" Su Clan's Sixteen petite body quickly moved as she waved the short saber in her hand, leaving two streaks of saber light behind... it was the ❮Spirit River Saber Technique—Tyrannical Saber Technique—Imperial Saber!❯
These two streaks of saber light were both attacks of the Fourth Stage rank.
With its defense broken and body injured, the huge demonic mosquito didn't have the strength to resist against these two saber attacks. One of Sixteen's slashes sliced its mouthpart, while the other cut off its head.
After that, the tyrannical saber light seeped into the body of the huge demonic mosquito and extinguished its life.
With their combined efforts, the duo had easily killed their first demon of the Fourth Stage.
"Well done!" Song Shuhang said with a smile.
Su Clan's Sixteen spun the short saber in her hands, and said, "I just dealt the finishing blow, and that was it. It seems that your fist technique has a great weakening effect on the demons of the Netherworld Realm. It felt as though it was a buddhist fist technique created specifically to counter the demons of the Netherworld. If we make proper use of it, perhaps we can kill even more demons of the Fourth Stage with such ease."
"That would happen only if these demons give us the opportunity," Song Shuhang said. After all, demons of the Fourth and Third Stage were different. The majority of the demons of the Fourth Stage had already developed intelligence.
On the other hand, aside from those with humanoid forms and a few others that were somewhat special, the demons of the Third Stage were relatively stupid, and followed their instinct like wild beasts.
Now that the surrounding demons of the Fourth Stage had seen Song Shuhang's ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ in action, they would be very careful while dealing with his fist technique.
As such, it was going to be difficult to kill another demon so easily.
"Let's see if we can find a good opportunity later. I think we won't have any problem while dealing with around five demons if we work together... but if the number of demons of the Fourth Stage surrounding us surpasses seven, we'll have to run," Su Clan's Sixteen said via secret sound transmission.
"Fine," Song Shuhang replied.
The duo glanced at the far-off demons of the Netherworld, and started to choose their next target.
Lady Onion slowly arrived next to the corpse of that huge demonic mosquito and grabbed it, stuffing it into the cosmos bag. What just happened was rather scary—even a demon of the Fourth Stage had died in Song Shuhang and Su Clan's Sixteen's hands.
In addition, it died so quickly! After making its appearance, the demon was able to show off only its speed, and died before it could use any secret technique or other unique skills!
Even if the strength of these demons of the Fourth Stage was weakened, Song Shuhang and Sixteen were still very scary while working together!
In this level where the demons of the Fourth Stage were gathered...
After Song Shuhang and Su Clan's Sixteen finished dealing with that huge demonic mosquito, a small hamster-shaped demon quietly yawned. Compared to the surrounding demons of the Netherworld, this hamster was rather calm, and acted as though none of what was happening was its business.
Perhaps because it was too small to be noticed, or perhaps because it had some special technique at its disposal... none of the nearby scholars or cultivators helping the White Cloud Academy attacked this small demonic hamster!
And right at this time, the gaze of the demonic hamster fell on Song Shuhang. After pondering for a moment, it muttered to itself, "It seems I've found him. He's just advanced to the Third Stage Realm, but his constitution and mental energy are very strong. In addition, his appearance also seems to match that of that Song Shuhang... I must look for an opportunity to get in contact with him later."
In the meantime, in the level of the demons of the Fifth Stage.
Venerable White had to restrain his strength for the sake of the movie, and was fighting a 'bloody battle' with a group of demons of the Fifth Stage.
Venerable White—who would normally need one or two sword attacks to kill a demon—now had to use around twenty attacks to get rid of one, allowing the enemy to die in a dignified manner.
After withstanding over twenty attacks of a Seventh Stage Venerable, these demons of the Fifth Stage could really die with no regrets.
While he was surrounded by this crowd of demons of the Fifth Stage, Venerable White had already completed that scene where he had to kill an enemy at each step.
Now, Venerable White had to fight a 'bloody battle' one last time and 'save' one of his companions from the encirclement of the demons. After that, this scene would be considered as completed.
The companion that was 'saved' by Venerable White didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
It was a scholar of the Spiritual Emperor rank that was giving his all while fighting against the demons when Venerable White suddenly arrived next to him and kidnapped him.
Then, Senior White shouted random lines such as, "Run, I'll cover for you…", or "Don't worry about me, I can block these demons!" while dragging him away.
This cultivator of the scholarly faction was quite smart and decided to obediently cooperate with Senior White, and left the encirclement of the demons of the Netherworld.
"Fellow Daoist Lychee, did you record everything?" Venerable White asked.
"Yes, I've recorded everything. Senior White, you performed really well while saving that fellow daoist," Fairy Lychee said with a smile.
"It's something I thought of on the spot. Since we were fighting against the demons, how could we miss a scene where we had to save one of our companions? Anyway, I'll change my clothes and shoot another scene where I kill enemies at each step," Venerable White said as he placed down that scholar of the Spiritual Emperor rank.
Next, Venerable White raised his sword and slashed horizontally!
Radiant sword light flashed through the surrounding area, and the four demons rushing over to attack them were cut into eight halves.
Venerable White then said to that Spiritual Emperor of the scholarly faction, "Fellow Daoist, you can keep the corpses of those four demons and consider them as a reward for helping me with the shooting of the movie. There is no need to stand on ceremony; please accept this gift."
"Thank you, Senior White." That Spiritual Emperor of the scholarly faction bowed and accepted Venerable White's present.
"Let us meet again," Venerable White said as he started to take off his clothes to change into the new ones.
Just as Venerable White prepared to take off his clothes, the surrounding atmosphere became strange. It felt as though the sound of breathing in the surrounding area had become heavier.
Fairy Lychee was quick-witted, and used a magical technique to cover Venerable White's appearance with golden light, preventing others from seeing him as he was changing his clothes.
"Sigh~ Senior White should pay more attention to the effects of his charm," Fairy Lychee said.
"I'm sorry, but I was having too much fun earlier," Venerable White said. "Right, that jade green ball I threw earlier should be about to return."
Just as he was speaking, that jade green ball that had sent flying the demonic hive of the Eighth Stage earlier whizzed back to his side.
However, just as it was flying back to Venerable White, the ball stopped abruptly.
Then, it changed its trajectory, and suddenly hit Fairy Lychee.
Fairy Lychee was completely caught off-guard!
"Aaaaah!" Fairy Lychee called out in alarm as she was knocked down to the ground by the ball...
