Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 151
Data.142 – Old Bowman, Unison Evolve
He looked like an…alligator!
Garbow had evolved from a Ravengar into a Ravenalligate, and had grown four legs that stood heavily on the ground!
‘Gar’ was no longer in his name, but monster evolutions were always like this.
They often turned into something that you weren’t expecting, and so the fact that Garbow still had features from his old form… Well, he actually looked the same, only with legs now…
His voice also sounded lower and more powerful.
And I was glad that he still said ‘Gar.’
I would have been a little annoyed if he started saying ‘alligate’ or something like that.
“Garbow! Bite my leg again and support me!”
There were still alligators in the river, and other wild beasts lurked on dry land.
Now that I could barely move, I was a sitting duck.
And so I stood up once, created a platform in the air with Floating Cloud Herd, and then used Warp Arrow to get on top of it.
Now their fangs would not be able to reach me.
Of course, that meant that Garbow would be targeted instead…but that was fine.
I hadn’t checked his status yet, but had seen that he gained 2 charge attacks and 1 skill.
Furthermore, 2 of his old charge attacks had evolved…!
And so Garbow was several times more powerful than before!
“Garbow! Attack the enemies in the river first!”
As I had fought the alligators before, I knew how many there were and their abilities. As long as we got rid of them, Garbow and I could escape through the water.
I doubted the savannah beasts would follow us into the river and sea.
“Charge attack… Kurokogairu!”
And like that, five duplicates of Garbow appeared.
They had black bodies and red eyes, and reminded me of the lizards I fought in the hidden Windcloud settlement, or the snake in the tunnel.
They were shadowy and clearly not real if you looked closely. But as the real Garbow was also black, you could get confused if they were all moving around.
These clones could also take damage, and so they would disappear if attacked enough times.
Their abilities were only a fifth of the real Garbow, and they could not use charge attacks. Otherwise, they were the same.
With this charge attack, I could use strategies that would normally be impossible while solo!
Even though they were just one fifth of Garbow, the attack stats were impressive.
And so they would surround enemies and attack them one after another!
“I have to do what I can to support him as well… Oh?”
It was then that I noticed something important.
Thanks to growing legs, Garbow was now able to move quickly on dry land!
He wasn’t quite as fast as when he was swimming, but he was no longer an easy target like before.
And yet he could also float in the air the same as before.
So he floated in the air and dodged enemy attacks, then fell while slamming his tail down for a drop attack, crushing the enemy’s body.
He was already using the new skill, Flail Tail very well.
It was a simple skill, much like the one that the ancient alligator used to crack Garbow’s shell, but judging by the way that he used it, his AI seemed to have improved…!
There was just one new charge attack left.
It was probably the strongest one…
And it was called, ‘Crimson Death Roll’!
He opened his mouth wide and rotated at a high speed while charging.
His bared teeth acted like a blender that shredded the enemy to bits…!
This also resembled the ancient alligator’s attack.
In other words, he could also do that attack that hit me…!
Garbow bit one alligator that had especially tough scales, and then twisted its body in a flash.
Yes. If he bit into something, the force of his rotation would affect the target, resulting in enough power to severe its flesh.
Real alligators used the death roll…but when a rare monster that has undergone a 3rd evolution uses it, it becomes this powerful…!
And like that, all of the river alligators were dealt with.
Now it was just the beasts that the clones were keeping in check.
Lions, tigers, cheetahs. They all looked terrifying, but they were no match against Garbow as he was now.
Garbow floated up into the air and activated Blue Ocean Sphere, which was an enhanced version of Ocean Sphere.
The sphere of water looked a little more blue, and it’s ability…was not that much better.
The important part was that the cool down had been shortened.
What used to be 10 minutes was now 5 minutes!
This was much better than some half-assed upgrade.
After all, the charge attack was now twice as efficient…!
And Ocean Sphere wasn’t the only thing that had been enhanced.
The charge attack that had helped me and Garbow so many times, Red Meteor, was now Red Meteor II.
This one too was an upgrade in force and speed, and also had its cool down cut from 10 minutes down to 5 minutes.
It was nice that after getting a new stronger charge attack, the previous one became easier to use.
Otherwise, they would become completely obsolete.
Now, as Garbow had taken care of the rest of the enemies, I would scout out the area from the sky.
It was possible that all of the fighting had attracted other monsters…
Gashan. Gashan. Gashan…
I heard metallic sounds that did not seem very natural for a savanna.
And so I activated my Sniping Insight skill and looked in the direction that the sounds came from.
Gashan. Gashan. Gashan…
“…A mecha lion?”
While the sounds were out of place, it was at least modeled after something that would live here…
Their metal bodies swayed as the sunlight reflected off of them. And like that, an army of mecha animals came towards us.
Why were they here… Well, now that I think of it, Garbow is a mechanical fish, so he is similar to them.
Was that somehow related to this…?
