So imma make this thread to put on some feats and info regarding the Octagram members. This thread will be edited time to time since the novel's translation isn't complete yet
Leon Cromwell A.K.A The Blonde Demon
Leon Cromwell is someone that happen to be thrown into the world where TSSDK story took place because of some space-time distortion phenomenon in the past. He became a Hero when he was still a kid and awaken into a True Hero as an adult. Hes a genius person who has develop magic to summon someone from another universe by doing something to time-space. As a True Hero, he gained an Ultimate Skill by the name of Purity King Metatron. It's the strongest holy type Ultimate Skill there is. His entire skillset is a bane to all things demonic, hence his specialization in purifying stuff. With this skill, he can spam an attack comparable to Hinata's strongest holy magic, Disintegration. Hes also a capable fighter who uses a rapier and a shield as his weapon of choice. Said shield is capable of halving an enemy attack if its demonic in nature. He also utilize his Ultimate Skill to create a powerful shield that last for eternity and drain the energy of whatever being it entrapped within the seal. After his death in the hand of Footman (Kazaream's subordinate), Leon was resurrected by Rimul. This resurrection also changes him from a True Hero (A high ranking human with powerful body and almost infinite lifespan. But still a human nonetheless) into a Demi God, an existance superior to a Hero. A Demi God is a spiritual beings that are no longer bound by flesh, lifespan, and rule of physics. They can also move within a stopped time.
Feats Some random attack is comparable to a technique called Disintegration. He can also spam it
The Demon Lord Leon was before him. It was certain that this man was superior to him. Even with Yuuki’s ability, he was an opponent that couldn’t be read. With Yuuki’s ability, he could analyze a normal Unique Skill right away. If he couldn’t read it, then the opponent’s rank was higher than Unique Skill. According to Kazaream, she said the attack was a current of light that destroyed all. It reminded him of the “Disintegration” that Hinata used. It was the strongest Holy magic.
「I lift my prayers to the heavens. I ask, for a holy strength. I beg, for my prayer to be heard. Upon all of creation! Disintegration!!!!!
A power befitting a god. Though it’s not an area attack, since it targets everything from the atom to the soul, it is considered the strongest anti-personnel magic. Upon completing the chant, a brilliant white light shot out from her hands. A blinding light. It traveled to the target at a speed of 300,000 km/s. Equal to the speed of light. The skill completely vaporizes the target via holy energy. The down-side–it requires a long time to prepare. Amidst a magic fight, or a duel, it is not a power you can use. Moreover, it requires a large amount of energy to use, and can be used at most once per day. However, there is not a single being who could withstand this attack. Now, the hideous slime, who barely feels any damage from the environment, has disappeared without a trace. This is also a skill which only erases its target.
Leon has a technique which is several thousand times greater than Disintegration
Twinkling lights radiated from his 36 pairs of wings. When the lights collided with the layered barrier, they were reflected irregularly and filled the inside of the barrier with light. It was a wild dance of photons that broke down the things it touched. It was Leon’s greatest and strongest wide area annihilation ability. The annihilation percentage inside the limited space covered by the barrier was 100%, it was an inescapable technique. Yuuki who was still crouched down on the ground with his severed left arm, had his body mercilessly pierced by the lights. When the inside of the barrier is filled with lights, photons are generated, and the ability concludes. This ability generates energy several thousand times greater than the “Disintegration” that Hinata had used, and all objects within the barrier are disintegrated. And then, the inside of the barrier was filled with lights. A flash. When the magic circle disappeared, the lights calmed down. There’s was only one person standing on the ground.
「It seems I will incur Milim’s hostility if I kill you. Since that’s the case, I will only make you fall asleep again! Oh Holy spirits, flutter! Triangle Pyramid (Sacred Tetrahedron Demon Sealing Barrier)!!」
A small tetrahedron with four pillars made from crystallized spirits grew large and in accordance to Leon’s will, it wrapped around the Chaos Dragon. This was the ultimate holy attribute barrier that even surpassed Holy Field. The Barrier that Leon had constructed was given the [effect：eternity], where the captured person was confined. It was a high-class sealing technique that rivaled『Infinite Prison』. No, the effect may even surpass『Infinite Prison』if the target had a demonic attribute. With the existence of this barrier, Leon could possibly win against Guy just once. Of course, if it was Guy, he would instantly sense the danger of the barrier, and not get caught by it. Therefore, not to bedisparaging, but the success rate against Guy was only about 1 in 1000 attempts. However, if the target was a mindless monster, it couldn’t defend against this technique. The poor Chaos Dragon struggled to break the seal, but its resistance was futile. Furthermore, when the barrier’s effect activated, it sucked the magic power from the Chaos Dragon and used it to reinforce the barrier’s strength. When it came to this, its movements were already sealed. It wasn’t like the lifecycle barrier that Milim had erected, no matter how much energy the Chaos Dragon possessed, as it was, it could vanish before 100 years had passed. In this matter, Leon thought that Milim could possibly resent him for this, but if he released the seal and handed it over to Milim then it would be fine. It would be troublesome to incur Milim’s wrath, but it wasn’t really something that he should be thinking of right now. He modified the barrier settings, so that it would immediately be buried under the ground. In the end, the Chaos Dragon was sealed again in instant by Leon.
Shield that cut incoming damage if it comes from demonic source
Leon held a Golden Circle (Golden Round Shield) in his left hand and the rapier in his right. It was a legend class shield as good as armor, but it had high defense ability because it was mixed with Leon’s Holy Aura. In reality, the shield could suppress the damage from an attack of demonic attribute by reducing up to half of it with purification.
The fight was settled in an instant. Leon, who burned with anger, delivered intense attacks towards Yuuki without giving him the chance to counterattack. With a flowing elegant thrusting speed that approach the speed of light, Leon’s Flame Pillar made Yuuki’s entire body instantly became bloody. The ominous black armor that was the crystallization of the Chaos Dragon’s power was smashed to pieces, unable to withstand the sword endowed with the power of purification. As for the difference in power, the gap was vast, like that between an adult and a child.
After he was resurrected by Rimul/Ciel, he became a Demi God. His body turned into the holy energy that's used to be within him. Basically intangibility
An analysis shows, that he has become a Demi-God. Before this Leon had generous amounts of holy aura inside of him, now he has become the very holy aura that used to be within him. Simply said, he has become a spiritual entity. He didn’t have a Core now, so to adjust the flow of Ki, he was remodeled to work without the need of a core.
Leon is also a True Hero, someone who has hatched their Hero Egg. A being whose existance defies logic to such an extent they cannot be predicted. Some sort of resistance to precognition, if that even makes any sense.
From his desires to protect the girl younger than he, the power to protect has awakened within him. Moreover that wasn’t all. By obtaining a “hero’s egg”, a portion of the remaining rampart energy was obtained. Even at a young age, Leon had the qualities of a Hero.
“Curse lord” Kazalim, was offended by Leon’s nickname of demon lord, and paid a visit to purge him. Even for Leon, the genius with a “Hero’s egg”, the “Curse Lord” Kazalim was a formidable foe. Superficial attacks will not work on Kazalim, king of the undead. With Leon’s abilities specializing in defense, he couldn’t inflict a fatal strike on Kazalim. On the other hand, Kazalim too found Leon a difficult opponent. Breaking through he iron wall-like defense was tough, and all his curses were null and void. With both sides lacking a decisive factor, the battle that unfolded extended for several days. However, the ending was a disappointing one. His egg hatched.
Absorbing his pure feelings within the inner soul of Leon, the “Hero’s egg” had hatched. Leon has awakened and became a true hero. He who reigns as the demon lord, he who is the true hero. And that, is Leon Cromwell. He awakened an ability, the ultimate skill “King of purity Metatron”. An ability which draws purest energy possible from power, magic, aura, and skill
This is Hinata who has just acquired unhatched Hero Egg
However. Frankly, there was no possibility for me to lose. After all, there was 『Future Attack Prediction』. Although Holy attribute can pierce through Covenant King Uriel’s Absolute Defense, I already have eyes that can see all the sword lines. Having such thoughts, I must never think carelessly. In my vision, 『Future Attack Prediction』 emitted light for the line of all predicted attacks Nn??? Surprised. What was the meaning of this? To me, who was having such thoughts,
《Notification. The Individual: Sakaguchi Hinata’s growth was confirmed. She most likely posses “Hero’s Egg”. Because of this reason, she has become an existence that surpasses logic, and because of this result, she seemed to gain a resistance against Result Prediction System’s ability.》
Dino A.K.A The Wandering King, The King of the Sleeping Forest
Dino was a Seraphim, the highest rank among angels, prior his fall. As a Fallen Angel, he became a Demon Lord at some point and befriend a fellow Demon Lord, Dagruel. As a fighter, he mainly uses sword as his main weapon of choice. Hes a lazy man who lives his life lazily, so lazy he gain a power from it. This power is named "Sloth", this ability allows Dino to deprive someone and turn them into Dino's ally while at the same time depriving them of their abilities. This Sloth later evolved into an Ultimate Skill named Slothful King Belphegor. That combined with his swordmanship, allows him to utilize phantasmagorical sword move shits thingy. This Ultimate Skill excels in mental attack.
Feats Fallen Hypno: It release a wave that induce sleep into whoever it hits. It's said that its impossible to resist this move with willpower. The only way to resist this is to not have the natural need to sleep
「Beretta, you did well. Sleep now, “Fallen Hypno (Slothful Sleep)”!!」
Dino, without hesitating, releases the now reusable ability of his Ultimate Skill. A strong hypnosis induction. Resisting it with willpower is useless. For those who need rest, they would certainly fall into an eternal sleep. It was the strongest of Dino’s abilities that exerted a wide-range effect. Because Dino knew that it was meaningless even if he killed Beretta, he brought Beretta down with the effect of the ability. Similarly like him, even Ramiris who was being protected fell asleep under the influence of Dino’s ability.
「Seriously there are just too many strong people in this place. Really, what a pain...」
Confirming that Beretta has collapsed, Dino muttered so. He glanced at Ramiris who was sleeping soundly,
「Actually, I didn’t want to do a thing like this….. but I’m not telling you to forgive me. Goodbye, Ramiris.」 (EN: sayonara is written in katakana here, for some reason. Maybe it’s just there to make it more dramatic?)
With a ruthless light in his eyes, Dino, without any hesitation, extended his hand towards Ramiris――
A Demon is a race that doesn’t need to sleep Therefore, Beretta had barely succeeded in resisting Dino’s ability. He protected Ramiris from Dino’s spear hand that shone using his body as a shield. Dino’s spear hand pierced through Beretta's Adamantite body with ease. He seems to not care about Beretta’s defense power as currently he’s not clad in defense of magic power. Rather saying he succeeded in resisting the ability, he simply doesn’t need sleep. He forcibly make Beretta entered Sleep Mode and Beretta already has no combat ability.
Fallen Catastrophe: It does similiar thing to Fallen Hypno. But rather than sleep, it induces "destruction" instead (which is basically a hypnosis attack that hypnotize you to death). Dino is also capable of making the target conduct a specific result with the hypnosis. Its a versatile ability.
「It’s troublesome, but I cannot say so either. Don’t think badly about me! “Fallen Catastrophe (Temptation towards Destruction)”!!」
The law is rewritten, and the positive factor starts reverting to minus. Energy that lead to the suspension of activity, regardless of being living or undead. However, since there was no compelling force, it was the target of the technique who voluntarily walked on the road to destruction. It can be seen as a kind of hypnotism, but the effect caused by this ability was on a different level. Because everyone who failed in resisting this will surely die. The point of the inducement this time was “Destruction”, but Dino could make the target conduct a specific result with the hypnosis. It was a versatile ability. Because it didn’t use sound as medium, a barrier or the like can’t defend against it which may be its notable point. As one of the seven deadly sins, “Sloth” could also be called one of the most dreadful ultimate abilities.. That’s because it’s an ability that could exert absolute control over people with emotion and intelligence..
Due to the activation of Dino’s ability, everyone who was in this place fell down and their deaths were confirmed.
Fallen Thanatos: A move disguised as a sword move with funky attack name (Fallen Strike) which (again) release a wave that robs the victim of their will to live, basically turning them into an empty husk. This ability is also capable of hitting the real person even if they're in different location if the wave hits a clone or virtual body or something along those line
「Humph! Don’t underestimate me. Even though I look like this, I’m one (one pillar) of the Demon Lords; I have lived for a long time. Take this, and then you shall perish! “Fallen Strike (Fallen Heaven Strike)”!!」
The strongest secret technique of the illusion sword that Dino had created. He performed the maximum ability release of『Slothful King Belphegor』,the strongest strike with all of his power. It concealed a wave that stimulated negative feelings and just a graze could rob the target of its will to live. The only people that can endure this attack are the ones who possessed strong willpower and an Ultimate Skill. Even Guy would not end up safe if he took a direct hit of it, or so Dino believed. The negative wave would be released into all directions, so even if someone succeeded in evading the strike, they would just be bathed in the wave and ultimately the person couldn’t escape from his fighting power being drained. Then, Dino could deliver the final blow by slashing his opponent with his sword. It was his hidden card that Dino released with confidence.
However, Zegion didn’t move. He ascertained the trajectory of Dino’s sword and, as if it was not something serious, he took Dino’s Great Sword “Crumbling Fang” with the exoskeleton of his left hand, which had been transformed, giving it the properties of Hiihirokane (Ultimate Metal).
「You fool! Even if you stopped my sword, it will become a fatal injury. I won this match!」
Dino shouts. It was his fastest attack, but it was caught as expected. Moreover, with one hand, as if to say that it was a trifling attack. A terrific impact should have occurred from the God Class Great Sword, but Zegion remained standing without any hints of shaking. He was calm to the extent of being odious. But this match was Dino’s victory. Even if Zegion possessed many Unique Skills with high defensive abilities to an unthinkable degree, it wouldn’t be able to prevent the effect of the soul series attack of an Ultimate Skill. He made Zegion let his guard down thinking that it was just a sword strike, Dino’s strategy to give off a fatal attack of the soul series seemed to have succeeded. Because Dino knew that Zegion was strong, he would’ve predicted the sword trajectory and chose not to evade it, as close attacks were his forte.
「Humph. I want all of this to stop, good grief. He seems to revive in several minutes, I need to kill Ramiris quickly…」
So he muttered, as he turned around towards Souei who was holding the sleeping Ramiris. With his『Magic Perception』, he felt that Souei’s presence was thin. In other words, this Souei was one of the clones. The clone’s fighting power was weaker than the main body and much more fragile. Besides, since Souei didn’t possess an Ultimate Skill and Dino grasped that he doesn’t own Ramiris’s “Bracelet of Revival”, even if the one who standing in front of him was the main body, Souei wasn’t a threat to Dino. However, he had revealed all of his trump cards and his remaining energy was also decreasing. Clashing with the executives one after another was unexpected for Dino. Because he was able to defeat Zegion with his saved trump card, he should get away before he revives. Dino started walking towards Souei… However, he felt a strong chill and turned back around to Zegion.
「I’m asking you now, are your attacks of the delayed effect series? Do you think this non-threatening, breeze-like attack can defeat me? If, under this situation, there’s no need for such lackadaisical methods, you should release an attack with an immediate effect.」
Zegion says so while standing calmly and unchanging like a while ago, he opened his thrust out grasped left hand from before. 5 flashes were emitted. Those were Zegion’s Dimension Rays. Dino succeeded in avoiding a fatal injury by instantaneous evasion actions. However, his black wing and right arm were severed.
Dino was crouched and groaning in pain, but not that much. “It’d be really dangerous if things continue to go like this”, as Dino ignored the warning given by his instinct, and shouted
「You, why? Why didn’t “Fallen Thanatos (Hypnotic Inducement towards Death)” work? Even if it was a virtual body, it’s an inescapable technique that would affect the main body even if it was at a distant place,you know!?」
Holding the Unique Skill『Sloth』, he was nearly finished with depraving Dagruel. He was a truly uncontrollable person; who held an overwhelming power, so Dino has been avoiding having serious battles against him. Just as the skill name suggests, containing the word ‘Sloth’, the skill power was meant to deprave in nature.... After his son who will succeed his throne, the depraving will be completed. His sons had enough qualification to become a Demon Lord. After they receive enough experience then they will become one. Then, Dagruel would retire, and it would become what Dino had planned before. Unique Skill 『Sloth』 power was to cause the depraved person to become his subordinate and at the same time deprive them from their abilities. With a powerful yet obedient pawn, he expects to obtain a great magic power. Well, for Dino, this was just a game for staving off his boredom, but... even so, this magnificent game had been played for almost 300 years.
Dagruel is an artificial being created by heavenly host and serve as heaven's gate protector. He later joined the 2nd generation of demon lord and retain his position as a demon lord when the Octagram was officially formed by Rimul Tempest in a Walpurgis Event. Due to the holy power ingrained into his being, Dagruel reject the demon lord seed. However, he (somehow) manage to awaken as a True Demon Lord. Dagruel himself is an existance similiar to that of a True Dragon, hence his moniker as an "Ultimate Existance." While Dagruel himself doesn't possess any Ultimate Skill, his sole existance alone can be considered as one
Feats He has an ability which is named "Magic Nullity." Contrary to its name, it's capable of negating something which isn't considered to be magic (Ultimate Skills)
It just unfortunately, Dagruel can’t be defeated by magic. Because, as a true giant, he has the absolute ability called『Magic Nullity』. By activating the Anti Magic Guard (Absolute Magic Defense), it will automatically neutralize all magic attacks. As long as he has this ability, he can ignore all magic attacks. Therefore, people who killed by the current magic are weak and an existence which can to be thrown away.
His Magic Nullity dispersing Nihilistic Hazard and Tempest Meteor
Shortly after the battle started, they had a brief strategic meet with Adalman who just returned. As they can't count on their advantage in numbers, they decided to probe the enemy for information by making use of the Immortal Legion's undead property. It was a conservative move, but for the sake of discerning the enemy's capabilities, they reached the consensus of avoiding a full scale clash at the very beginning. In addition, there was a point of concern that Gadra spoke of.
「I found it to be a little perplexing, how did they disperse the “Nihilistic Hazard”....? To me, it looked as though they were nullifying the magic――」
That was what he said. As he has spent all his Energy and was unable to cast another volley of Great Magic, it was his intuition as a Great Magic User that gave him the feeling that something was amiss. The meteor attacks also didn't cause as much damage as was expected, but it was how unnaturally his “Nihilistic Hazard” was dispersed that really gave rise to his suspicions. It might just be him imagining things, but it's better to take note of this. It's not like Shion could use magic, but attacks that made use of energy could be affected too. It was expected to at least be wary in case it really happens.
These are Nihislistic Hazard and Tempest Meteors respectively
「Oh thou who suffers in everlasting starvation, heed my call! “Nihilistic Hazard”!!」
The strongest of Divine Magic is the ultimate anti-personnel destruction magic “Disintegration” which is well-known. It’s known that there’re a few people who can use it, but its high power is guaranteed. It’s said that person who receives a direct hit and can survive doesn’t exist. However, if there’s weakness of this magic, it might be that it’s a single target magic. The attack range is extremely short. It was a natural reason why the magic has a high power, but against an army it was a useless magic. Because he’s well informed about this matter, it might be why Adalman used the strongest spell in summoning magic―― ――And what Gadra chose was the opposite of “Disintegration”, the strongest large-scale annihilation spell of darkness magic. A very large magic formation emerges on the ground and the sky. And, like connecting the sky and the ground, dark electric discharge begun to appear――and innumerable spheres of electricity were released. The fang of darkness that swallows all substances. It’s darkness magic that brings void to this world and is considered as one of the forbidden spells. The void let loose in the world doesn’t vanish until it’s negative energy turns null. Everyone inside the barrier of the magic formation that links the ground and the sky is devoured and their existence is erased. It was one of the ultimate magics that was feared, as a mistake in its control can bring destruction to the world.
「Wahahahaha! How’s that! Amazing right!?」 「You fool! What are you thinking! If I didn’t help you, you would absolutely fail to control it you know?!」 「Th, that’s might be right, but I want to be in the spotlight too!」 「That’s not an excuse! To use such dangerous magic……」
Adalman is stunned. Certainly, as this world might be destroyed if Gadra fails his control of the magic, Gadra can’t make any excuse.
「Well then, you better experience this properly――an ancient extreme magic――”Tempest Meteor”!!」
――In an instant, glittering dazzling lights pours down from the magic formation that appeared suddenly in the sky. It’s as beautiful as the wonder of a starry night……. However, it’s a dreadful light that brings forth death and destruction. Even though it’s a grand magic that would need several Archmages of old to successfully cast, the completed extreme magic of Adalman is several levels above it in scale and power. And it’s magic that starts with Tempest in its name symbolizing their country. With the correction of Ultimate Gift『Necromicon』, he had shown this world the perfected result.
The best that the past Archmages able to summon were just several meteorites. Even so, it was a grand magic of strategic-class showing a great effect as anti-army magic, but…… the number of meteorites summoned by the magic that Adalman invoked exceeds 1.000. The ground is rained down by meteorites with diameter of 50cm~1m, spreading death to Dagruel’s troops. Even if the giants are known for their superior regeneration power, there’s no meaning if they received damage they can’t regenerate. The limbs that tried to catch the meteorite are blown off, and their heads are crushed. The giant race who intended to invade with their huge power is at their wit’s end as they weren’t even able to escape. The extreme magic that Adalman cast showed more effect than he had intended. Only by one magic, nearly one third of Dagruels army became unable to fight.
Nullified Luminas' Ultimate Skill, Lustful King Asmodeus, which can control the life and death of her target. To be specific, her Death Blessing reverse the death and life of someone she hits
With the sweet scent of roses, a red streak of light flashes and makes contact with Dagruel's head. From there, descended a silver haired girl. Wearing a jet black dress, with gold and silver heterochromic eyes which show her shining resolve. Demon Lord Ruminas. This was the very moment the ruler of these lands joined the battle.
「Hmph. People like you, usually show openings at the moment of triumph. As it was a problem for me to break through your defenses, I was observing the situation and letting it pan out waiting for my opportunity. Looks like you were careless, Dagruel. Don't think too badly of me, and take a little nap there for the moment.」
As she has said herself, Ruminas has been observing the situation from the very beginning. She understood that her chances of victory were low, if she were to face Dagruel head on. Ruminas properly understood the limit of her own abilities, so she didn't think her actions were underhanded. To fight the battle which she knew she could win. That was her way of life. She unleashed her most devastating attack, on the careless Dagruel. As Ruminas was someone who had access to an ability which controlled life and death, it was an attack that had the full intention of slaying her foe. Which was also why――
「Fumu. So it's Ruminas, huh. And you are right, that I had been careless. But, could you really say that has been a problem? Did that attack actually damage me?」
Those words caused her to freeze up. Ruminas was a knowledgeable being, she properly understood what those preposterous words meant. Which was that Dagruel was unharmed. This event, manages to prove a single fact. That――
「Are you all done now? Now then, it's my turn next. Brace yourselves! Or it will be over in an instant!!」
As they have not been able to defeat him even with Ruminas' attack, it was a fact that Ruminas' forces would be unable to attain the victory.
The “Seven Celestial Sages” had finished the reconnaissance mission and reported it to Demon Lord Ruminas. Afterwards, they followed Ruminas who came to the outer district area in order to confront the giants. And so they would encounter a surprising situation.
There exists a knight who can fight Grasword, who has been called the strongest ‘Sword King’ that ever existed, on equal terms. The attack of Ruminas, who is their master whom they adore and respect, hadn’t worked against Demon Lord Dagruel. And the last thing, a person, with a nostalgic face that they remember seeing somewhere, having started a battle against a rampaging giant who was like a berserker, on equal terms.
‘This might be impossible――’ That’s the honest impression of the Demon Lord Ruminas Valentine. Her plan was to kill Dagruel using her strongest technique in the first attack, but it had no effect. With Death’s Blessing, the life and death reversing technique, Dagruel should have died. However, the result was that the instant death effect was nullified, and Ruminas’ secret technique was defeated. At that time, Ruminas was able to partly foresee that thing would proceed this way.
Resist Dino's Unique Skill, Sloth, for more or less 300 years
Holding the Unique Skill 『Sloth』, he was nearly finished with depraving Dagruel. He was a truly uncontrollable person; who held an overwhelming power, so Dino has been avoiding having serious battles against him. Just as the skill name suggests, containing the word ‘Sloth’, the skill power was meant to deprave in nature.... After his son who will succeed his throne, the depraving will be completed. His sons had enough qualification to become a Demon Lord. After they receive enough experience then they will become one. Then, Dagruel would retire, and it would become what Dino had planned before. Unique Skill 『Sloth』 power was to cause the depraved person to become his subordinate and at the same time deprive them from their abilities. With a powerful yet obedient pawn, he expects to obtain a great magic power. Well, for Dino, this was just a game for staving off his boredom, but... even so, this magnificent game had been played for almost 300 years.
This Magic Nullity can also be used offensively by nullifying magic barriers or something similiar
Fenn makes his move. He traverses the battlefield at incredible speeds, moving as though he was the wind itself. And finishes his sprint by launching an offensive against Adalman, who was at the rear lines supporting his allies with magic. Adalman, who was supposed to be protected by many layers of magic barriers, was knocked onto the ground in a single blow. Fenn grasps the initiative of their battle in an instant. The battlefield was visited by a terrifying silence
「Im, impossible-!! What speed, no, power!? Adalman constantly protects himself with a myriad of magic barriers, how did he―!?」
The enemy’s ability seemed to have surpassed what Adalman had expected. His multiple barriers were all broken through, hardly even one of his defensive measures showed any effect. If not for that one defensive measure, there was a possibility that Adalman would have received a fatal blow at that moment. Though, it’s kind of strange to say that he, who is already dead, would receive a fatal wound again. (How!? For him to penetrate my magic barriers as if he was ignoring them, does that mean that this guy’s ability is actually『Magic Nullity』!?) Adalman had arrived to the correct answer instantly. It was fortunate that what Gadra had hinted at before came into his mind. If that’s the case, he was correct in preparing a defensive measure other than magic. (Oh well. After all, this magic will have exhausted my magic power. Whether it’s『Magic Nullity』or anything else, it already doesn’t matter! Rather it’s convenient for me.) Though he can’t be said to be unharmed, his plan had succeeded. The great magic that Adalman had chanted activated without any problems.
Shion activates her Unique Skill 『Cook』, and using it's matter altering properties, she boosts her own stats. With her body which has high immortal properties, Shion manages to contain the power which surpasses the limits of what normal beings can handle. Having reached the output range of an ultimate skill, Shion unleashes a single attack with everything she had. Shion was planning to defeat Dagruel with this very attack.
「This is bad! The anti-monster barrier on this peripheral wall is going to get blown away with that attack!」
Gadra shouted, as he gets the elite guard to retreat. Even as she was confirming what was happening at the corner of her vision, Shion went ahead with her slash unto Dagruel. Dagruel didn't even move. And, at the very moment Shion's blade was about to make contact with his head――
He roared. With enough fighting spirit to shake his surroundings, that pressure alone stopped Shion's swing. Because of his incredibly dense fighting spirit, Shion's attack didn't even manage to so much as touch Dagruel's skin. He was every bit of the monster the rumors made him out to be.
And then, Shion. The woman who fighting against Dagruel and standing up many times in front of him. Her appearance reminded Ruminas of the Hero Chloe who saved her in the past. Blood flows out from her head without any sign of stopping. Even the wound in her whole body, bore new wounds after recovering. Shion’s attack couldn’t touch Dagruel, she was mortally injured due to Dagruel’s counterattack. Even so, Shion stood up, she kept challenging Dagruel over and over.
Why is this relevant ? Here's a summarized version of Cook ability
Shion's ability which overwrites the very nature of an object itself, the skill allows the user to be able to obtain their desired effect. For example if used on a person and all their limbs were chopped off, healing magic will not work as the person was rewritten to have their limbless self be the new norm, in other words they are already perfectly healthy. Another example of the use of this ability is attacks carried with it's effect can't be blocked, it will change the effect from "the slash has been stopped by the shield" into "the shield could not stop the slash", hence the shield will not be able to stop the attack. Additionally, Shion can use Cook to amplify her own stats.
The battle intensified. It wasn't just the appearance that looked intense, the invisible battle between abilities was taken into account too. Dagruel, had no Ultimate Skill of his own. His existence alone can be called "Ultimate", as a being who is almost equal to the True Dragons. His fists alone could cause destruction on levels that warp the laws of physics, the special vibrations caused would interfere with the earth and the atmosphere, resulting in storms of destruction.
In comparison, Dagruel's very existence is a supernatural phenomena. Hardened Defense ・ Weapon Destruction ・ Existence Destruction ・ Magic Immunity ・ Neutralize Attribute ・ Ignore Defense―― These, are but some of the abilities he wield as an Ultimate Living Being. Under normal circumstances, engaging in melee combat with Dagruel is utterly suicidal. Transcending physical and magical elements, an existance likened to a God of Destruction. That, was Dagruel.
His unrestrained power (he can't exert his full power while in suspended world) can't be blocked by Shion's newly gained Ultimate Skill, Tyrannous Lord Susano'o, which can control causality
His superpowers which were sealed are now released. What that implied, was that he is now able to unleash those superpowers which gave him the nickname "Earthquake". Dagruel, releases a massive all range attack onto Shion. They were equal in the Stopped World due to her abilities, but things are different now that the laws of physics are back in motion. The number of rules to control exponentially increased, which created many more results from cause and effect. Complete predictions, and phenomena control has become more difficult to accomplish. That was already a feat, when the opponent was on equal footing. As per Veldora's warning, Shion's only chance at victory was while the Stopped World was in effect. The ground quaked, with tremors that made standing up nigh impossible. At the same time, the atmosphere roared as it twisted, and lightning crackled. All of that, culminated into the attack onto Shion, assaulting her all at once. With the effect of the absolute ability of Ignore Defense attached, all for the express purpose of taking Shion's life―― Even with Ultimate Skill『Tyrannous Lord Susanoo』, nullifying all of that was impossible. (The overwhelming difference in Energy, is the biggest wall between you(Shion) and me!) Dagruel's inner exclamation, did not reach Shion. All of the attacks had the intent to take the target's life.
The ability of Unique Skill『Cook』, to "bring a desired result of the user" has evolved――into complete manipulation over the law of causality This isn't something on the level of Majin Laplace's『Future Vision』, it is an Absolute ability. It is not prediction, but purposefully causing a result that is intended. Before Shion evolved, her being able to move when time was stopped, was due to the effects of her Unique Skill 『Cook』
The same move that Dagruel unleashed upon Shion, will kill her if not for Luminas saving her life before she's killed
A chilling voice, reverberated across the battlefield. Shion who was doomed to perish, was brought back from the abyss of death, by Demon Lord Ruminas' Ultimate Skill『Lustful Lord Asmodeus』. If time is flowing, that means support from Ruminas can be counted on too. With that reasoning, it was Shion's strategic victory. Shion placed her bet on Ruminas reviving her and not retreating.
Shion after evolving into a Spiritual Lifeform can infinitely regenerate her body
Thus, with the evolution of her mind, it also triggered Shion's racial awakening. She is now a Combat Spirit Oni (High Rank Divine Monster Spirit), a being which specializes in physical combat. A spiritual entity that can infinitely regenerate its physical body. But, has attacks that are capable of destroying the opposition's soul.
Even before her evolution as a Spiritual Lifeform, she already has these 2 skills after being revived by Rimul
Perfect Memory EX and Endless Regeneration EX: Perfect Memory EX allows Shion to be able to retain her memories after death, When used in conjunction with Endless Regeneration Ex, even if her physical body got blown off, she can change into her astral body state and thus avoid death. Even if her physical body dies, she can't truly die unless her soul is destroyed, if her soul isn't destroyed she will just regenerate.
Dagruel has a "Battle Form" which is basically him fusing with his brothers, Fenn and Grasword. It basically Dagruel, Fenn, and Grasword power and equipment in 1 single body
With Dagruel's roar, the ancient seal was broken. The brothers Dagruel, Grasword and Fenn, were enveloped in a dazzling light. This is, the second coming of the Destruction God from the Age of Myths. Clad in unimaginable amounts of Energy, Ashura of the Titan manifested. Shion and co. understood immediately in one glance, that Titan is not something any of them can match. All except the most powerful of beings, a True Dragon, who was before them.
「Kuahahahaha! Is that form are your true visage? Dagruel! Very well! I shall take you on with everything I have!!」
Veldora transformed into his Dragon Mode. And so, the battle of Myths, between two supernatural beings begins.
Grasword (Well, technically Dagruel and Fenn too) have a power named "Weapon Destruction" which can destroy his enemy's weapon and armor on contact
Grasword. An ultra first rate two handed sword user. And, the second-in-command of the giant forces. Though his total Energy levels are lower than Dagruel, it is said that his swordsmanship is at a higher level instead. If you look at it from another perspective, it might be Albert who is the abnormal one, being able to cross swords with such an individual. He was parrying heavy attacks that would normally crush opponents as though a flowing willow, he's even adding in counterattacks. It was a feat possible only due to the full set of Gods class equipment he was bestowed with. That was because if it was equipment of Legend class or below, it would have shattered from receiving the first attack. Due to Grasword's abilities『Magic Immunity』and『Weapon Destruction』. Normal equipment would be destroyed the moment they made contact. Armor would also be destroyed, and his opponent would then have to receive his killer attacks "naked".
While on the other hand. Fenn have a chain named Gleipnir and something called "Eye of Truth." This Eye of Truth cannot be deceived, Veldora get around this eye by using his own special technique.
「Those chains, is that Gleipnir!? If that's the case, this would be pretty dangerous yes?」
Gadra-roushi who has been standing by behind them, spoke up to Shion. As he has used all his Energy earlier, Gadra-roushi has been resting after the end of their meeting, but has woken up from noticing the changes in the battlefield's atmosphere.
「Oh, it's Gadra huh. So, what's that Gleipnir?」 「Right. This is something that has only been passed down in ancient texts.... It is said, that during the age of gods, the dragon emperor sealed an evil god. 2 of the 3 brothers turned over a new leaf, but as the remaining sibling chose to retain his brutal nature, he was sealed with the Chains of God. Gleipnir, are the names of the Chains of God.」
Gleipnir. Chains that sealed an evil god who emitted immense amounts of Energy. If the legends are true, the chains will have been absorbing the Energy emitted from the evil god, and have "evolved". During that time period, these chains were said to be the possession of the dragon emperor, and was able to seal both divine and demonic beings. In the current era, it wouldn't be surprising if it had properties on par with God class artifacts. But, what was truly terrifying, was not the chains. The evil god which was sealed by those very chains, was what they needed to be wary of.
「Exploding Chains of the Sealed Destroyer Prison!」
With Fenn’s face facing the front, he tried to capture Veldora using Gleipnir in his hand. With his『Eyes of Truth』, he discovered the one which have the greatest amount of energy from among the countless clones without any difficulty. No matter how many Veldora created his clones, it would be useless in front of his『Eyes of Truth』―― or should it have be……
「Unfortunately! That just my clone~!!」
Veldora shouted like making fool of him. In fact, any individual that get caught by Gleipnir would immediately annihilated and disappear. Since it was so quick and overdone.
「Ohh…… you, to be able to deceive my eyes…… What kind of trick did you use?」 「Fufufu. Oh Dagruel, even when you unleash your true power, you can’t defeat me. As there’s no chance for you to win! Besides, even I have grown stronger. I’d be bothered if you think I’m still the same as the old me!」
Veldora dodged Dagruel’s question. Properly speaking,『Eyes of Truth』 can’t be deceived. However, with his『Existence Probability Fluctuation』, it was possible for Veldora to shift himself with his clones momentary. It was possible by manipulating Parallel Existence and Probability Manipulation at the same time, one of his secret technique. In addition of those two, it also utilized Space Manipulation or so Rimuru (Ciel) had explained it to him about the ability, but Veldora ignored it. Even if he didn’t completely understand the fine details, there was no problem because he mastered how to use it instinctively, so Veldora thought
Grasword is capable of negating Veldora's Wing Blade which could tear molecular bond
Several of Veldora’s clones approached Dagruel in a super high speed flight. The wings generated vibration and turned it into a high frequency blade. The vibrations of the 2 pairs of big and small wings created a death end barrier which could tear molecular bond. Veldora’s large build was covered with death end barrier and became a huge destruction sphere. Such fiendish destruction sphere was a thing that can only be created by several clones of Veldora. Everyone attacked Dagruel at the same time.
However, Dagruel didn’t panic. Grasword’s face turned to the front, preparing great swords on both of his hands. And then, he moved to intercept it while at the same time several of Veldora clones approaching. The speed of the great sword’s edge which length exceeded 10m easily surpassed the speed of sound. By each one of Dagruel’s sword flash, the destruction sphere that Veldora’s clones had created was negated. In other words, that means the clones were destroyed. Dagrueal didn’t slacken his attacks. He continued,
So Dagruel shouted. Becoming an Ashura, his blind spot has disappeared. Just like before, magic didn’t affect him. And――with『Hardening Power』, his body easily surpassed the hardness of diamond, any kind of attacks would be repelled. For example, even if Dagruel was attacked by a master with the same level as Grasword with a god class weapon, it probably wouldn’t affect him. To that extent, as the current Dagruel specialized in defensive power. Invincibility. That was Dagruel’s current state.
His fight with Veldora is basically him and Veldora throwing natural disaster at each other's face
Dagruel, the destruction incarnate and Veldora, the king of the storm. The similarity of their power was: “lightning”. Dagruel with his own transcendence ability could freely manipulate the electric tension between the ground and the atmosphere. Therefore, he could use various attacks with lightning which was the strongest offensive power that the mother nature had. However, Veldora was the same. Veldora could circulate his own energy and naturally generate lightning. So, both of them have high lightning resistance. Hence, using lighting strike against each other was insignificant. Although it wasn’t effective, both of them converted their fighting aura into lightning and fired it against each other. The result, energy with different natures colliding with each other became a pillar of lighting which flooded the surrounding area.
Dagruel freely manipulated the vibration wave. If the earth was vibrated, earthquake occurred, if the atmosphere was vibrated, electrical discharge was generated. It was easy to create a vacuum wave when he manipulated the airflow intentionally. However, it didn’t affect Veldora. That was a justified matter. After all, Veldora is the incarnation of storm. Dagruel was well informed about that, there was no need for him to be flustered. Because both of them were longtime opponents, each of them knew well each other’s character. However, as his limitation was released and became Trinity, this is the first time Dagruel fought with his original form which was the ‘Battle Form’. Dagruel was aware that his blood was boiling with excitement. Now was the time where he’d have a showdown with Veldora who was his longtime fated opponent.
Grabbed a compressed mass of atmosphere[?] and disperse it
Veldora laughed down Dagruel’s shout. And then, he threw Thunderstorm (Lightning Storm Roar) as it was. The compressed mass of atmosphere draws near Dagruel while releasing electrical discharge. However, that super-density attack was grabbed by Dagruel with one hand and disappeared.
He can cut out dimension, thus creating isolated space
He calmly activated Space Grasp and the range of his interference wave expanded. After he confirmed that it wasn’t Veldora’s clone and he wasn’t hiding using『Eyes of Truth』, he cut out the dimension, creating an isolated space. In this space, there were only Dagruel and Veldora. Also, all of Veldora’s clones, in order to eliminated them together at the same time.
Following that, he can use his sure kill move, Quasar Break, which does this (Veldora only barely survived it due to using his probability manipulation to its fullest output)
A great earthquake shook this cut out space. The inside of the space was filled with super dimensional vibration with Dagruel as its epicenter. Irreversible, interfering destructive waves were generated and emitting invisible lights. Dagruel consumed 60% of his energy to bring forth absorption light rays. Dagruel converted his own body into a pseudo-black hole, absorbing and destroying all matters inside the space. At that time, because of the generated friction which exceeding the isolation space, dazzling light begun to overflow. No matter what kind of life form, if they receive the interference of this overwhelmingly high energy concentration, it might be impossible for them to preserve their own existence. Not just disintegrated, they would be swallowed into the black hole and disappear. However, the majority of the absorbed energy was used by Dagruel to maintained his own existence. It didn’t meant that Dagruel can absorb everything, so as a special attack, it can’t be used continuously. Dagruel had the conviction on his special attack, and checked the result.
The completely isolated space that Dagruel created closed together when he absorbed the radiated light rays. However, it seemed that some distortion remained in the dimension, even affecting the real world. It could be said as a scar of transcendental destruction―― although it would assimilate with the surroundings and returned to normal once time flows. There should be no one who able to survive that attack……
Both him and Veldora continue their fight in their human form
Dagruel boosted his fighting aura. Then, he turned small from his about 15m large body in a flash. Dagruel became around 3m in size. However, lightning flashed from his body, super compressed energy could be felt.
「Mu!?」 「Fuhahahaha. It was you who taught me, Veldora. When you control your anger, further power can be gained――or so」
Veldora recalled those words. Come to think of it, he had talked with Dagruel about the knowledge of the holy book (manga). Just from that bit of information, Dagruel had splendidly sublimated it to actual combat level. Compressing himself, the density of Dagruel’s energy seemed to be tremendous. Size is power, but he would be at disadvantage with the way things are going. Veldora realized so.
「Good grief, for you to learn to control that far. As expected from Dagruel. However, I will not be defeated!」
Veldora also compressed his energy and transformed into human form, as a respond to Dagruel. The unordinary melee fight begun.
Dagruel’s fist sunk into Veldoro’s abdomen. At the same time, Veldora’s elbow hit Dagruel’s face. Their fight lasts several hours, neither of them yielding to the other. A kick for a kick, a fist for a fist. Each other’s attacks will be countered with the same attack. Instead of fighting firmly on the ground, the places of their battle were changing one after another. From the sky to the ground. And blowing off the surroundings, to the desert. And again to the sky high. Sometimes outside the atmosphere. For both of them who are masses of energy, the battlefield was same whether they go. With their own body as the launch pad, they driven super compressed energy to the opponent. And then, splendidly discharging the received energy out of their body, they prevented fatal injury. It was important to suppress one’s own energy loss while making the opponent waste theirs. Each of their attacks intersected, properly speaking with the power of their blow, even high class Majin would be blown into oblivion. Although they were causing large damage on the surroundings, both of them already stopped caring. A fierce battle that seemed to last forever.
