The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 40
Unbreakable Black Armor
A group of over sixty people attacked Shion.
All of them are controlled by the magic tool and have murderous intent in their eyes.
The trouble is, they’re not complete enemies, they’re only being controlled.
“This is bad…”
There is no dark magic that can cure the condition of a large number of people. There is only one bottle of Aria’s <Holy Fresh Water> left.
It also remains unclear how long the effects of the magic tools will last.
But Shion didn’t have time to think long and hard.
With Ogre Frogs trying to trample them from above, and many more attacking them from the front——
As a result of Aria’s water magic, the soldiers began to drown all at once. The huge cubes of water trapped their entire bodies mercilessly.
Even if they try to escape by swimming, it is not easy because many of them are equipped with armor.
The Ogre Frog was also tackled by Haku while falling. Thanks to this, he was blown to a position far off from Shion.
“I think I’ll let them swim for a bit”
‘Now, this is where we come in. Shion, please beat up that cocky Demon!’
“Yep! Shion has no problem fighting in the sky, after all! Leave the ground to us!”
“You’re really helpful, Haku, Aria. I’m counting on you here”
Shion thanked his friends for their concern and courage and spread his <Black Wing> wide. With his sword in a thrusting stance, he lunged at his target, Argyz.
Argyz, who had been in the air for a long time, was getting impatient with Shion, who was closing the distance in the blink of an eye.
Although he barely avoided the stabbing, he couldn’t help but be astonished at Shion’s flying ability and physical prowess.
As a counterattack and confirmation of his abilities, Argyz fires a series of three human-sized fireballs.
All three shots were easily absorbed by Shion’s <Dark Ball>.
“You… You’re not a normal human, aren’t you?”
“Don’t you dare…. Interfere with my plans! If I can make Rotra fall, I’ll become closer to Ten Generals!”
Shion hates those who only think about their own interests, other than humans.
It seems like a waste of time to even talk to them.
“Before we came here, there were seven bodies. Was that you who did it?”
“You mean a happy family. Yes, that’s the art I made. I didn’t gather up random people, I used a real family. It took a lot of work to find them”
“Disrespectful and cunning anywhere anytime… typical Demons”
“Let me ask you a question, too. What makes you so strong? Did Axe the Dark Hero teach you magic or something?”
Even though the demon tribe looks down on humans, they are indeed wary of the 16 Heroes. Especially when it’s someone who has killed so many of their own people. Shion sighs and answers the question.
“Teach me? I’m that Axe. Shion Axe, that’s my full name”
“You…you’ve got to be kidding… right?”
“I don’t think we’re even that close to being joking around”
Shion tells Argyz, who looks desperate, in an indifferent manner.
“2 months ago, I killed a Demon General, and now that seat is empty. But, I don’t think you’re worthy of that seat”
“Do…Don’t take me for a fool! And don’t even think that my attacks earlier are my best attack! If you insist, ill show you my true power—!”
When Argyz stretches his hands upward, a sphere of flame is created. It swells rapidly with each passing second and soon becomes large enough to swallow a human being.
It was so large that it could burn through even an Ogre Frog in an instant, and the heat could even reach Shion’s skin from a distance.
“Heh! If you want to escape, now is the time. But even if you do, you won’t be able to escape this scorching ball. Chasing down enemies and burning them down! This is my most powerful magic!”
“Well, it sure looks like it’s hard to suck in a <Dark Ball>. And it even has a tracking function?”
Although there is a way to cancel it out by applying attack magic, Shion decides to choose another method.
An aura of darkness appeared and enveloped his limbs.
“Why are you so calm?! DIE SHION AXEEEEEEEEEEEE————!”
When Argyz brought his arms down in front of him, the scorching sphere began to move to follow. It was huge, but it was also very fast, and it quickly trapped the motionless Shion in the flames.
Argyz laughs away in a good mood as Shion turns red and disappears from sight.
“HAHAHAHA!! I DID IT! I FINALLY DID IT! IN FRONT OF THIS MAGIC EVEN THAT AXE CAN’T DO ANYTHING!!”
The scorching ball is so hot that a human body can not last long. In one second, you will be badly burned, and in two seconds, you will lose consciousness.
And it’s a magic so vicious that it can burn through flesh in a matter of seconds.
In the past, not a single person had survived when Argyz used this magic.
Furthermore, the real power of the scorching ball lies after it has been burned.
Yes, it caused a huge explosion.
It’s a super-aggressive magic that causes plenty of damage with flames and then explodes, leaving no pieces of flesh behind.
Argyz himself staggered slightly from the sheer force of the blast…. However, the smile on his face never faltered.
When the blast stopped completely, he burst into the highest laugh of the day.
“Hey hey! Even though you’re that strong, even though you’re that Dark Hero, you will perish if you got hit with my…. Magic…. Wha….?”
The whole body remains clean.
Its black wings are also still intact and unharmed.
The physical body is …… actually Argyz doesn’t know for sure.
Because the person there is not the Shion from earlier. It’s a knight-like being wearing a jet-black helmet and armor.
The full armor hid his face and even his fingertips, making Argyz wonder if it was really Shion. That doubt was quickly blown away by the sound of his voice.
“Dark Cloak——Defense Type”
In the offensive form, he wears a dark aura all over his body to increase his muscle strength and the abilities of his five senses. In contrast, in the defensive form, he creates black armor to dramatically increase his defensive capabilities.
It increases the durability of all attributes except light and makes you very strong against simple physical attacks.
“Mo——Monster…. GET AWAY FROM ME YOU MONSTER!!!!!!!”
“I’m upset. Isn’t your ugly mind the biggest monster of all?”
Argyz, terrified by the approaching Shion, flapped its wings and fired the same series of scorching balls as before, though much smaller in size.
It’s all a direct hit, and every time it hits, it causes an explosion.
However, in front of the black armor, which is more durable than steel, the attack was no more than child’s play.
Unable to put up any kind of resistance, Argyz was pierced through the heart by Shion’s sword.
Even for demons, the heart and brain are weak points, and death is inevitable.
“Don’t die yet. I’ve still got six slashes left”
Blood spilled from Argyz’s mouth.
He tried to plead about something, but Shion wouldn’t listen.
From here on, he would unleash a fierce slash six times to slice and dice the enemy.
Then, he would completely erase the existence of Argyz from the world.
