Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 159
Data.150 – Old Man, Raging Baboon
There were eight baboons in all.
Once I was able to observe them calmly, I saw that there were small differences in appearances and weapons.
Some even used magic.
Satomi’s Unison, Gochu…was called a Magic Monkey. Perhaps they were related?
In any case, there could be other Unison Trainers other than Satomi in the tournament, and so I would likely have to battle against Unisons.
It would then be best to learn how to fight monsters with high intelligence…!
“Garbow! Kurokogairu! Focus on one enemy at a time and bring their numbers down!”
If they fought one on one, Garbow’s clones would not be able to win against a baboon.
And so it was best to have all five of them move with Garbow and destroy the enemy one at a time.
With group battles, it was important to focus on bringing the number of enemies down.
Of course, the enemy understood this and acted as a group as well.
But if they gathered into groups, my charge attacks would be more effective…!
“Thunder Shotgun Arrow!”
The spreading arrows scattered the group of baboons.
They were wild animals, and so their reflexes were amazing.
However, Garbow didn’t miss the fact that they had broken up.
He had also become more intelligent after evolving!
The clones used Red Flash and Garbow used Red Meteor II on a single baboon.
Use your charge attacks to kill an enemy in one shot when you have the chance… It was a good decision.
Now there were only seven baboons left.
“Let’s continue at this pace, Garbow!”
◆ ◆ ◆
“Alright! Good work, Garbow!”
The less there were, the easier it was to take down the next target.
After killing the first baboon, it did not take long to kill the rest.
Well, it wasn’t like we were really losing in numbers to begin with.
Kurokogairu was a ridiculously powerful charge attack.
The words ‘fighting is about numbers’ have never been so meaningful to me as now.
However, I was worried that things would get too easy, and I would get in the habit of fighting in a lukewarm way.
Still, it really was nice to be able to take things easy.
It was something that Satomi would understand…
…Hey, hey. Has a different group appeared now?
But Kurokogairu was in cooldown. Am I back to difficult fights so soon then?
I held my crossbow and looked around.
The cry was louder than the earlier baboons, and it sounded more angry.
Did they understand that their comrades had been defeated…?
However, the voice echoed everywhere, and I couldn’t tell where it was coming from…
Garbow made the decision on his own, and activated B Ocean Sphere so that I was inside of it.
At the same time, a great fireball shot towards us and slammed into the sphere of water.
While the sphere of water evaporated immediately, the great fireball was also erased.
I didn’t take any damage, but if the attack was powerful enough to erase B Ocean Sphere in one hit, then this monster couldn’t be the same as the baboons we just fought.
It was likely…a boss monster!
“Exploding Sky Tear!”
I targeted the trees that the boss was about to jump onto.
Without the platform, the boss crashed down on the ground.
Was it laughing or angry?
The baboon…the raging baboon, had veins popping on its face as it bared its fangs.
This one had fur that was an even brighter red, and it swayed in the air like real fire.
It was likely due to high body temperature.
Like the bonito flakes that dance above a hot okonomiyaki…
“Trident Shotgun Arrow!”
If it was hot, then I just had to cool it down.
With Trident Arrow, which had the power of the sea…!
Garbow also joined in with a water skill, Holy Splash.
With cold water, we would put out the raging flames…!
However, the baboon caused an explosion by slamming its giant axe into the ground, which blew away our skills.
While water was its weakness, the boss was smart enough to understand that and keep it away.
As a baboon, it was light on its feet, and so I wouldn’t be able to defeat it as long as it could move around freely.
That being said, using Web Cloud Arrow against a fire enemy was pointless.
Southern Cross Ballista was also no good against fast enemies, and I would lose Garbow if I used Meteor Bow.
And I couldn’t use Arrow Storm, because the Blackwind Darkcloud Bow was currently being upgraded.
At least Shotgun Arrow spread out, and was able to deal some damage even as the baboon moved around.
However, this baboon boss was the kind that got angrier the more you damaged it.
So damaging it slowly would just put me in a worse position.
In any case, I would have to just wait until the cool down for Kurokogairu ended.
Once I am able to use that charge attack again, I could really test how Garbow and I could cooperate now.
If the advance guard is stronger, the rear guard will become stronger as well…
Garbow’s evolution reminded me of my original fighting style.
Attack from a distance where the enemy couldn’t counter, so that it’s a one-sided battle until they go down…!
With Kurokogairu and the new skills I got from the Machine God Windhole, that old style would make a return!
