“So, that squirrel over there, why don’t you separate yourself from the other two and come on out?”
“Squeak, squeak, squeak, it’s no use provoking me. You are planning to catch the whole herd with one throw by saying that, aren’t you?”
Hmph. Unlike the other two, he avoids the apparent pitfalls after all.
Well, once I know that’s the case, I’ll just have to devise a plan accordingly.
Truthfully, Pumpkin was beginning to worry about the number of catalysts he would require in the future, but he could not afford to be stingy with them, so he decided to give up on the idea of saving money.
“Now I wonder what shall I do?”
With his catalyst ready and out of sight of Toririsu, Pumpkin began preparations for the magic.
And everything will be ready when a sufficient number of Toririsu’s alter egos have assembled behind him. Timing will determine the rest.
“Don’t you dare ignore me!”
“Or me, you cheat guy!”
At this moment, Pumpkin was attacked by Monokio and Karamuji, who may not have been pleased that he was ignoring them. However, he easily escaped their attacks, and to further annoy them, while staring at Toririsu, he softly prodded them in the back of the head as if he could kill them at any moment.
“Toririsu! How long are you going to keep staring at me like that!”
“Oh, that’s right! You had best get to work on my behalf!”
“Tsk, what a hassle…”
[[What is the hassle! Aah!?]]
Hmm. This is convenient.
The initial plan was to deal with the two of them appropriately while dragging Toririsu to the battlefield, but because they were both so self-centered, the events have progressed on their own.
In this case, Toririsu had no choice but to attack Pumpkin in order to conveniently control the two of them.
“Hyulolololooo! That didn’t hit me!”
He saw a multitude of shadows coming towards him with their mouths open as if to disguise their assaults, which caused Pumpkin to uncontrollably laugh in the midst of Monokio and Karamji attacking and him dodging them.
“[Resonance Spell・Wire Vine].”
“Damn it! It smells like trouble!”
Just as the Toririsu surged forward, Pumpkin invoked [Resonance Spell・Wire Vine], and with the spell’s ability to impede movement, it temporarily stopped Monokio and Karamuji’s movements while simultaneously cutting Toririsu, whose fighting ability per animal was dramatically reduced due to their division, into small pieces in sequence, starting with those that came within range and ending with the ones that came out of range.
“Now the first one is down. Well, which one of you is going to be the next to go?”
Pumpkin extended a hand to the two and provoked them while crushing the torn-up Toririsu with [Gust Blow] just in time.
Even so, these guys are probably reincarnated people too, although they don’t seem to be aware of it.
Their language and behavior have been influenced, and that level of magic is not something that can be acquired quickly unless there are special circumstances like mine.
However, I don’t think they were able to use it at the time of Entdragon, so it’s likely that these guys obtained this power when they took on this form. If so, the identity of the Fourth Prince’s trump card is…
“I see what’s going on here. [Overburst].”
“Stop underestimating me… ah!?”
After realizing the true identity of the trump card, Pumpkin thrust a knife in the form of a counter to Monokio, who charged at him and then infused enormous loads of magic power into the knife, activating [Overburst].
“My arm aaaaaaah!!?”
Monokio’s right arm was blown off by an explosion from the inside.
“Now that this is happening…”
“I won’t let you. [Tornado Blast].”
“Oh no… gahhhh!?”
Karamuji endeavored to set Pumpkin on fire by sprinkling red powder all over the dome with the purpose of blowing Monokio and him to bits, possibly recognizing now that the odds were against him. Before that could happen, though, Pumpkin shot forth [Tornado Blast] that gathered the red powder around Karamuji and lit it just in time for Karamuji to be incinerated by the flames he had unleashed.
He survived, as was to be expected, but his ability to move will be limited due to the extensive burns on his body.
“Even if you have been given the experience and appearance from your previous life, it won’t mean anything if you’re three fools on the inside.”
The Fourth Prince’s trump card’s identity was revealed by Pumpkin after that, which made them both feel uneasy. Pumpkin then started preparing for the next resonance spell.
“Stop screwing around! I’ll crush you!!”
“I’ll smash you to death! You cheaterrrrrrr!!”
“You are three fools after all.”
The two of them said their last will and… no, they probably intended to survive, but they rushed forward anyway, with no second thoughts.
But by that point, it was too late. Pumpkin’s preparation was already complete.
“[Resonance Spell・Cucumber Blade].”
As soon as he declared the name of the spell, he swung his arm horizontally, causing a horizontal line to run across the dome at the same time. And just like that, Monokio’s and Karamuji’s bodies were slowly severed horizontally and crashed down.
“Well, if the cucumbers aren’t in season, then it’s not as powerful as this.”
Looking at the horizontal line on the wall, Pumpkin muttered and started to move toward the exit of the dome and the stairway leading to the basement.
At best, you’ll have a more decent life in your next life, you three fools.
The identity of the three idiots, or rather, a clarification of their former lives.
Monokio = “Ogre King of Dominating Herculean Strength”.
Karamuji = “‘Crimson Scattering Spice King”.
Toririsu = “War-Mongering Multitude Squirrel”.
Incidentally, they often hang out with each other in parallel worlds. Thanks to this, they were attacked by wolves.
They are the three reincarnated Demon Kings from Outer World Story: The Black Mist that Devours
