"I have to first reach the Ascended Super Saiyan level as soon as possible." Xiaya set a goal for himself.
Vegeta had reached this level by training for a year in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, but at present, Xiaya had already wasted more than half a year's time. It would be quite difficult to reach this level now.
However, even if Xiaya didn't reach the Ascended Super Saiyan level, he believed that he would not be worse than the so-called "Super Vegeta", because of his overflowing natural breakthrough to the Super Saiyan realm. From the very beginning, he had a much higher starting point than Vegeta and Goku.
His bearing capacity was much stronger!
Furthermore, when his Ordinary Super Saiyan level reaches perfection, the increase in his strength would be similar to Vegeta's Ascended Super Saiyan level, and when he reaches the level of the Ascended Super Saiyan, it would basically be equivalent to Goku and Vegeta's Full Power.
From the very beginning, his transformation state was half a level higher than Goku and Vegeta.
Time slowly passed by, and 24 hours quickly passed outside Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
"A day's time will soon be over. I wonder how Gohan and Mr. Xiaya's training went." Master Roshi paced back and forth with the support of a cane. He was preoccupied with the thought of the results of Gohan and Xiaya's training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
"Big brother Gohan will definitely become stronger after receiving pointers from Mr. Xiaya. Maybe by then, the Androids wouldn't be their match," Trunks guessed.
"Immortal Korin, were you not aware that the Lookout even had such a place?" Master Roshi asked.
Korin shook his head and said, "I didn't know about it. Lookout is where Kami lived, and I'm just the guardian of Korin Tower. Over the period of 800 years, the amount of time I had come up here can be counted with my fingers. There are a lot of secrets that I didn't know about."
Korin gave a long sigh filled with emotions. If he had known the secret of the Lookout much earlier, then maybe Vegeta and the others wouldn't have died in the hands of Androids.
Unfortunately, it was a little late to know this.
"I hope Gohan can achieve something." Master Roshi and Korin were both looking forward to it.
Inside the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
An endless white space…
The hot and dry temperature makes the inside look stifling, and the vast and empty white space causes the spirit to become weary. Gohan was wearing the gravity bracelet on his hand, and the powerful gravity forced him to maintain the Super Saiyan state, causing his Ki to get consumed very quickly. Gohan had to adjust his breathing in order to make the transformation state last as much as possible.
"Hua…" The burning Ki that was rising abruptly stopped.
Gohan heavily gasped for breath and transformed back to Normal State. Tired, he fell on the open ground. Sparkling beads of sweat dripped down along the tip of his nose and fell to the ground, raising snowflake-like dust before quickly evaporating.
"I am now much stronger than I was a year ago! It shouldn't be a problem to deal with the Androids."
Although Gohan was too tired to move, he was very excited.
In just one year of training, his Battle Power had soared from 500 million to 800 million, 100 million more than Android 17 and 18. More importantly, he had gotten a clearer understanding of the Super Saiyan path. But considering the unlimited energy source of the Androids, he could only deal with one of them at the moment. Moreover, he must defeat them quickly.
This negligible progress was naturally incomparable to Gohan in the original work. In the original work, Gohan seemed to be just like a cheat character as he directly soared from Ordinary Saiyan to Full Power Super Saiyan, almost leaping through the whole Super Saiyan's first stage.
Such an increase would cause people to feel a little out of sorts, and it could only be attributed to Gohan's talent that defies natural order; it could also be attributed to the infinite care that the author had given him.
"What kind of level has Mr. Xiaya reached?" Gohan stood up from the ground and looked towards the faint figure of a person at the end of his line of sight with curiosity.
In this one year, besides when Mr. Xiaya gave me pointers during the first half of the year, he seemed to have been sitting cross-legged like a monk in meditation the rest of the time; can training like this really improve his strength?
Gohan had his doubts about this.
No! Mr. Xiaya must have his reasons for doing this. Is it because my realm is too low that I can't see the mysteries in it? Gohan pondered.
Just as Gohan's thoughts were wandering about, Xiaya's body began to move as a calm, leisurely, and quiet aura involuntarily arose around him, and without any indication, a tornado suddenly formed in the vast and empty space. Wave after wave of frightening aura, which was intense to the point of being overwhelming, swept throughout the entire white space.
Under Gohan's line of sight, a golden glow followed by an immense might suddenly rose up as Xiaya instantly transformed from Normal State to Super Saiyan form. The golden-blonde hair in front of his forehead fluttered upward due to the Ki waves. His green eyes were calm, without any waves. His form was much more overwhelming and tyrannical than Gohan's Super Saiyan form.
It was like a storm wreaking havoc.
The strong cyclone spiraled, layer upon layer, wave after wave. The quiet atmosphere of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber was broken by the frightening cyclone, and extremely chaotic airflows filled every corner of the space.
Gohan's mouth opened wide in disbelief and he muttered to himself, "How did Mr. Xiaya's Ki suddenly become so strong? It's almost indescribable compared to before."
He had a feeling that if Xiaya intended to kill him right now, Xiaya would be able to instantly kill him with one move, without even a need for a second move.
"Could it be that Mr. Xiaya was sitting cross-legged in meditation before in order to perceive some kind of realm?"
Gohan let his thoughts wander. He had heard from Master Roshi and Korin that some martial art schools on earth relied on perception. Understand one law and you will understand myriads of laws; Is Mr. Xiaya also in this state?
At this time, Xiaya gave a long sigh. "I still didn't reach the Ascended Super Saiyan level, but this strength is more than enough to deal with Android 17 and 18."
Feeling the inexhaustible power surging within his body, Xiaya smiled faintly.
"2.4 billion Battle Power, already comparable to the so-called 'Super Vegeta'." The corners of Xiaya's mouth rose into an arc.
Although he hadn't reached the Ascended Super Saiyan level, his strength had still improved by a lot, soaring directly from 700 million Battle Power to 2.4 billion Battle Power. The amount of increase was not surprising. This was already comparable to Vegeta's strength when he first came out of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and a little stronger than Imperfect Cell.
Dealing with the Android 17 and 18 of this world would be totally effortless.
"In my current state, the amplification under Normal State is clearly more than 50 times." This was obviously similar to the Ascended Super Saiyan's amplified strength, but Xiaya knew that he was still an Ordinary Super Saiyan.
"Like this, every stage of my transformation would be a little stronger than Goku and Vegeta's. In that case, when I achieve Super Saiyan 2 stage, it perhaps wouldn't be just 100 times amplification!"
Xiaya smiled. This might be the benefit of an overflowing natural breakthrough. It strengthened his transformations from the bottom and could allow him to withstand greater transformations.
It was finally a big breakthrough!
"Mr. Xiaya, your strength…"
Gohan found it difficult to breathe, and his face was full of shock. To think that a Super Saiyan can still become so powerful… Mr. Xiaya has really broadened my horizon.
Xiaya looked at Gohan who was coming over from far away and said with a smile, "I only had a breakthrough. What a pity, I still haven't reached the Ascended Super Saiyan level." Even though he was saying how unfortunate it was to not have reached the Ascended Super Saiyan level, a faint smile hung on his face all along.
"Ascended Super Saiyan?"
Gohan was even more surprised such that his face showed a horrified look. He had never entertained such grand thoughts before. One's thinking limits one's accomplishments. In his mind, an ordinary Super Saiyan was already a very strong warrior. How can Super Saiyan still be upgraded? Would it be so easy to surpass Super Saiyan level?
Xiaya looked at Gohan and nodded, "Super Saiyan is essentially an unusual method of Exploding Ki. There are only two ways to get stronger. One is to upgrade Battle Power under Normal State; however, this is extremely difficult. The other is to make the Super Saiyan transformation even more powerful. I have divided the Super Saiyan realm into four levels…"
Then he told him the hierarchical division of the first stage of Super Saiyan, which corresponds to different strength amplification.
After listening to Xiaya, Gohan felt muddle-headed. What Initial Super Saiyan, Ordinary Super Saiyan, Ascended Super Saiyan, and Full Power Super Saiyan? Every description was so profound and unreal; it was simply unheard of. Yet he could clearly feel the certainty in Xiaya's voice.
"If Goku or Vegeta were still alive, even if they could not increase the multiplier, they would still certainly surpass the Ordinary Super Saiyan realm," Xiaya said.
He had been paying attention to Gohan's reaction. Compared to Goku and Vegeta, Gohan lacked the fighting spirit of a strong expert. Even towards attaining the Ascended Super Saiyan realm, he didn't dare to imagine it. Of course, this was also because his knowledge was limited, and he greatly pursued a gentle and refined scholarly lifestyle.
Ashamed, Gohan bowed his head and said, "I have benefitted from your pointers."
"Well, don't be dejected. I have seen your hard work in training during this year. Now, there shouldn't be a problem if I let you deal with one Android, right?" Xiaya smiled and asked; the warm smile was like a spring breeze blowing past a small hill, making people happy.
Gohan nodded hard, indicating that his strength was already enough to deal with one Android, and said, "Yes, the Androids are not my match in a one on one fight."
Xiaya took out a Senzu Bean from his pocket and let Gohan eat it, "Transform into Super Saiyan and attack me with your full-strength; let me test your strength."
Gohan answered loudly and gave a courtesy, like a disciple paying respect to his Master. Then, he opened the distance between them and concentrated while holding his breath. Suddenly, Gohan transformed into Super Saiyan form, and immediately, his turbulent aura raised great waves in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
Feeling the turbulent aura that was radiating out of Gohan's body, Xiaya nodded slightly. Gohan's strength was much more stable than before. It was no longer flashy and without substance as it used to be, like a hollow bamboo joint.
"Attack me!" Xiaya softly shouted.
"Mr. Xiaya… be careful."
Gohan's green eyes flashed with a glow, and then he took on an attacking stance. A gust of strong wind whistled in the spacious and vast space as Gohan quickly moved. Numerous disorderly but beautiful afterimages crowded together and were scattered here and there, like a row of mountain placed upside down, layer upon layer, on an ocean.
Gohan's fists and feet attacked as he rushed over.
"Interesting!" Xiaya had a faint smile on his face. Facing Gohan's attack, he leisurely extended a finger and then waved it up and down in the void, but this ordinary finger was just like a huge sword being raised to the heavens in Gohan's eyes, giving a vast and awe-inspiring feeling.
The powerful fist stirred the air, but it abruptly stopped at 10cm from Xiaya and couldn't move forward even the slightest inch.
Xiaya's finger lightly poked several times on Gohan's arm.
Du du du …
It was like the sound of a drum beat, muffled and trembling; the power penetrated Gohan's skin, causing his whole arm to feel numb.
Not good, Gohan inwardly thought. He hurriedly moved backward, feeling shocked.
As soon as he landed on the ground, he saw Xiaya leisurely walk over. Feeling Xiaya's aura that was only faintly discernible, Gohan immediately lost the will to fight. He bitterly smiled and transformed back to Normal State.
"Mr. Xiaya, your aura is truly odd… I couldn't muster up the courage to fight." Gohan bitterly smiled.
Xiaya knocked him back with just one finger, making him lose the will to fight.
Xiaya shook his head and said, "Saiyans are a fighting race and they would not lose their will to fight in any situation. Although you only have half of the Saiyan bloodline, you are a still Super Saiyan, so don't forget this point."
"Umm!" Gohan nodded.
"Let's go, our time here in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber is coming to an end, so we should go out and finish off those two Androids."
The rules of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber dictates that a person could only come in twice in his or her life. They had to obey the rule, or they would get stuck in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
Xiaya had once entered Hyperbolic Time Chamber in his world's Lookout. He didn't know if the time of the two Hyperbolic Time Chambers would be superimposed. If they exceed the time limit and the door closes as a result, then he could only cry.
The inside of Hyperbolic Time Chamber was empty and drab. Furthermore, there was only water and dry flour for sustenance, so Xiaya was reluctant to stay here another second and suggested to Gohan that they leave together.
"Indeed, it's time to finish them off." As he heard that Xiaya was going to deal with the Androids, Gohan's expression immediately became serious as he agreed.
So, he walked out of the door of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber with Xiaya.
The dilapidated Lookout…
Master Roshi and Korin's eyes were rigidly staring at the entrance of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, anxiously awaiting.
The door suddenly opened, and extremely hot air rushed out from the inside, raising white steam. They saw Xiaya and Gohan walk out dressed in rags.
"Big brother Gohan, you are finally out!" Trunks cried out loud in surprise, and he immediately sensed the unusual aura that Gohan was exuding. He hurriedly stepped forward and asked, "How was your training?"
"Thanks to Mr. Xiaya's special training, I feel that my strength is enough to deal with the Androids!" Gohan touched his head, but he very confidently laughed out loud.
"Great!" Hearing him, Master Roshi loudly shouted in excitement, the eyes under the sunglasses shedding tears. He had waited too long for this day, and finally, he could see the dawn of victory.
"Oh, by the way, after defeating the Androids, have you thought about the issue of rebuilding Earth? Now there are less than 10 million people left on earth. The problem of population is quite serious," Xiaya asked.
Listening to him, Master Roshi's face turned serious. Before, under pressure of Androids, they could only survive. Naturally, they hadn't thought about the future rebuilding. However, now that the victory was at hand, the reconstruction of Earth later must be considered. To be honest, a population of 10 million was not too small, but it would still take a long time to recover to the glory from before the Android disaster.
Xiaya did not tell them that Earth would face even more terrible dangers in the not too distant future.
"Unfortunately, since Piccolo and Kami died, Earth's dragon balls have disappeared." Master Roshi heaved a sigh.
"Isn't there still the Namekian dragon balls?" Xiaya asked.
"Bulma also thought about seeking help from the new Planet Namek, but the new Planet Namek is too far away from Earth. Moreover, its location is uncertain, and there is no way to get there without a spaceship and starfield chart," Korin said regrettably.
Both Gohan and Master Roshi also showed a hint of regret, while Trunks was not aware of the dragon ball and Namekian matters, so he didn't butt in.
"Can't you ask the Kai for help? North Kai should know the location of the new Planet Namek."
Xiaya found it somewhat strange. Such a huge situation had happened on earth, and as the administrator of the whole North Area, North Kai unexpectedly didn't react at all. Of course, Xiaya also understood that North Kai was usually busy with work and needed to manage other planets. It was impossible for him to always concentrate on these little planet, Earth.
Sometimes it was normal to not pay attention to the situation of a planet for more than a decade.
But didn't those dead dragon ball warriors go to North Kai? Or did they have no opportunity to go to Kai's Planet?
Right! North Kai's status is noble and is above Kami and King Yemma. How can a trivial mortal just go to see Kai as they wished? When Tien Shinhan and others were allowed to enter the territory of North Kai through the Snake Way, it should have been because North Kai had specially informed King Yemma.
