I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 130
3.45. Durability Test
After the meal was over, Shim, the Princess, and Ran cleaned up the table.
I was a little impressed that the Princess was willing to act as well, but she said she would not act without me.
I wished I hadn’t asked that, but I guess she wanted to make herself look good.
Let’s just pretend I didn’t ask.
Raiki seemed a little tired, perhaps because of his age, and went to rest first.
Perhaps I might have pushed him a little too hard.
“Whew! That was delicious!”
“I’m glad it was to your liking.”
Reizen said this while patting himself on the stomach.
The food was certainly good.
It really is Japanese cuisine.
I’ll have to thank the chef next time.
There was no beef in the dish, but I guess that was the custom of the Oni.
They eat the meat of monsters when they are on the journey.
Alena was puzzled because she had never tried these dishes before, but when she saw us eating them, she finally started to eat them.
Then, with a sparkle in her eyes, she moved her chopsticks and threw the food into her mouth without saying a single word.
Apparently, she liked it.
I wonder where in Alena’s small body that much food gets absorbed …….
It reminds me of some pink ball creature, but I hope Alena is not like that. (F: Kirby?)
“That was delicious!”
“Can I have it again?”
“If you stay here, you’ll get it! Right, Uchikage?”
“Yes, Reizen-dono. If there’s any food you want, we will have it made right away.”
They are both becoming completely at ease with each other.
I’m sure that we will be able to befriend the Oni of the castle town in no time.
Looking back on my time at the castle, many of the Oni have grim faces, but none of them are bad guys.
Crimes are unlikely to occur, and perhaps the Oni are aware of the fact that they are cooperating with each other.
If that were the case, there would be little chance of crime.
Not all demons are like that, of course.
Still, …… that sake was delicious.
I was disappointed that I could only have one cup, so I decided to ask Tenda about the drink.
He gave me a sour look, scratched his head, and then told me about the drink.
The sake is said to be a masterpiece created with great efforts by the Oni.
Therefore, there are not many of them, and the ingredients used are not easy to obtain, making it difficult to mass produce.
However, I’ll just say that I’m not going to force myself to drink.
The reason is that someone might come to me and offer it to me if I don’t.
So I told them not to bring it to me if it is that difficult to make.
I have to refuse them.
I would feel guilty if some people brought it to me by compulsion.
Tenda seemed relieved to hear that.
They often say that Oni likes to drink.
I suppose it’s something they don’t want to be taken seriously.
“By the way,…… Ouren-sama is quite a drinker, aren’t you?”
“Is it really that strong?”
“No, it’s not very strong, but most of the time when a race of people other than Oni drink it, they get drunk in no time.”
It is not high in alcohol content, but if you drink it, you will get drunk.
I was wondering if that kind of alcohol exists …….
The first thing that comes to mind is that Reizen is drinking as if he were drinking water.
I’m sure he has a high tolerance for it.
Then why didn’t I get drunk?
Was it because I was a snake? Well, that’s all I can think of. ……
While I was talking with Tenda, Reizen came up from behind me.
“What is it?”
“How strong is your attack power?”
Tenda looked at Reizen with a puzzled expression at this question.
However, Reizen looked quite serious. Noticing this, Tenda made a slight gesture of thinking before answering Reizen’s question.
Excuse me? How much again? 2436?
That’s higher than Uchikage!
What the heck is wrong with these Oni!
When Reizen heard this, his face lit up with a smile and he looked happy.
At that moment, I realized what he was trying to do.
I immediately approached him to stop him and tried to hold his mouth, but I was not close enough to get to him in time.
By the time I made my move, Reizen had already said what he had decided to say.
“Tenda! Hit me as hard as you can!”
I was the one who hit him Instead of Tenda.
Reizen was whited out, it’s super effective.
Reizen had never met a person or beast that could hurt him before.
He had never been cut by a large claw without a scratch, and no matter how fast he was attacked, as long as his feet were on the ground, he didn’t move even a single step.
Perhaps because of his overly high defenses, it does not have much sense of sensation.
This happened because the automatic skill called 【 Self-Enhancement】 was activated unconsciously.
Since he still does not know exactly when it is triggered, he seems to be having a bit of a hard time with it.
However, even Reizen, who boasts of such defensive capabilities, seems to be no match for the skill of 【 Defense Penetration】 , and was shocked and surprised by the pain he felt for the first time in a long time.
Then it struck Reizen.
He wondered which attacks he could nullify and which he couldn’t.
As far as we know, only the defense penetration skill can’t be defended against.
If that is the case, then there must be other attacks that cannot be fully defended against.
Understanding this and not understanding it will greatly affect the upcoming battle.
Therefore, I wanted to see the Oni’s attack power was like a scam by an odd number of digits.
The Reizen’s defense and the Tenda’s attack power are nearly the same.
However, Reizen has a skill called 【 Self-Enhancement】 which, when activated, gives him double the defense at the cost of his senses.
We do not know what kind of skills Tenda has, but he should still be able to deliver a far more powerful blow than the beasts and humans he has fought so far.
At the request of Reizen, me, Reizen, Tenda, and Uchikage were standing in a large space a short distance away from the Ninomaru Palace.
“How did this happen ……”
“W-well, …… is fine, isn’t it? I’m sure Tenda is willing to go along with it.”
“But,…… no matter how much he wants to know the bottom of his own defense,…… Tenda doesn’t have to break through Reizen-dono’s defense, does he?”
“Dunno,…… since I haven’t heard much about Tenda’s skills either.”
As if concerned, I look at Reizen and Tenda, who are standing a short distance away.
Reizen deployed a square barrier to confine himself and Tenda so that there would be no damage to the surrounding area.
Certainly, this would not cause too much damage.
When Reizen confirms that he has safely deployed the barrier, he is bracing himself by clashing his fists with each other.
Tenda was tapping lightly on the ground as he stood on his toes.
“Reizen-dono, are you sure about me to go all out?”
“Yea! Otherwise, it won’t be an experiment!”
“Well, then, here I come!”
Tenda quietly lowered his body and then traced the pattern.
Suddenly, a yellow, static-like substance began bouncing from Tenda’s legs and arms.
He opened and closed his hands one after another with a gulp, as if he were testing the sensation.
Each time he did so, the yellow static electricity popped, displaying its power.
Seeing this, Uchikage, who was standing next to me, muttered in a whisper.
“Tenda …… is going to really go for it.”
“Ho. What is that?”
“As I recall……. It’s the 【 Vajra Fist】 and 【 Vajra Legs】 in Tenda’s skill set. These skills are the upward compatibility of my 【 Herculean Legs】 .”
I’m honestly impressed by how he could be so serious about striking a blow against someone he has never met before.
“Here I go!”
“Bring it on!”
” 【 Vajra Fist】 !”
As soon as they shouted, Tenda instantly closed the gap between them.
A moment later, a yellow bolt of lightning chased after Tenda from where he had just been.
With the same momentum, Tenda struck Reizen with the best blow he could deliver, along with the yellow static electricity in his fist.
It was a blow without any mercy at all.
Reizen took the full brunt of the attack.
As soon as he was hit, the ground behind him was gouged out and stuck to the barrier.
The impact was so great that it shook the entire barrier, and cracks began to appear in various places.
Because it was covered by the barrier, the sound was not very loud, but the shaking of the ground was tremendous.
I quickly put my hands on the ground and activated the “land spirit.
That’s another 300 MP consumed just for today.
Please give me a break.
Using the skill of “Land Spirit”, I suppress the shaking of the ground.
The vibrations are probably coming from the ground that has been gouged out from behind Reizen.
The power is coming from that distance.
I don’t know what would have happened if there had been no protective barrier.
He’s a truly an amazing Oni.
I didn’t think he could display this much ridiculous power,…….
Yup. It’s crazy.
Then, all of a sudden, the barrier collapsed.
In the midst of the collapsing barrier with a rattling sound, two shadows could be seen.
One was Tenda, who had just launched a powerful attack.
Tenda was waving his right hand in the air as if in pain.
He was the attacker, but somehow he seemed to be taking damage.
And the other one is ……. It was Reizen.
Reizen was standing there without moving a single step from that spot.
His face looked a little frustrated, but he still had a smile on his face.
“It seems I can withstand that blow, huh ……”
“Y-you can you even ……take my blow without a flinch like that?”
Reizen was unfazed.
His equipment is also safe and fine for some reason.
How terrifying his defense is …… unscathed by that attack nonethless.
Perhaps the self-enhancement is activated.
Otherwise, it is hard to believe that they would be able to take that attack unscathed.
Tenda looks a little bitter.
Of course he was.
He shot at him with the best skills he possessed.
However, since Reizen was just an exception to the norm, I don’t think we need to worry too much.
But if you observe Reizen closely, you will notice that his legs are shaking a little bit.
I thought that he might be scared if he was hit by that attack, so I decided to approach him anyway.
“Good work. Both of you.”
With that said, I’m going to tap Reizen’s foot.
I know he’s trembling.
Reizen kneeled down.
How could that be? I had just hit Reizen with enough force to do no damage, even though I enabled the defense penetration this time.
Normally, this would not have caused such a cry.
“Re-Reizen? You okay?”
“… My body went …… numb.”
Hearing this, I began to poke Reizen.
Reizen screamed the whole time, but I decided to leave it like that for a while because it was a bit amusing.
It seems that Reizen can nullify physical attacks, but attribute attacks usually take damage.
It seems that Tenda’s attack was a powerful pure physical attack even though it has electycity current.
I heard that an ordinary soldier would have died the moment he was hit by a direct hit. ……
Oh man, what a bump.
Thus, one of Reizen’s weak points was discovered.
Poke poke poke.
