Chapter 435: A Thousand Rank 7 Demonic Beasts



The crowd looked to where Gao Yangyu pointed. They only saw a dark space behind a metal barrier. Within the darkness were countless scarlet eyes.

A strong aura seeped from the dark space, and bestial roars echoed throughout the arena, making one tremble in fear.

“Damn it! They are all Rank 7 Demonic Beasts!”

When someone felt the ranks of the Demonic Beasts, their expression changed. They seemed rather horrified.

Gao Yangyu smiled faintly and said, “That’s right; they are all Rank 7 Demonic Beasts. Furthermore, they are extremely hungry Rank 7 Demonic Beasts.”

A Rank 7 Demonic Beast was not very scary. Everyone here could deal with one easily. However, even if they split a thousand Rank 7 evenly amongst themselves, each cultivator would have to fight four Rank 7 Demonic Beasts. Furthermore, snatching the iron medallions would also serve as a distraction. The danger was extraordinary.

Xia Xiyan’s expression turned grave. She whispered to Xiao Rou, “Don’t get separated; stick close to me.”

Although Xiao Rou was strong, she had no experience. This time, as she participated in the selection, the Thousand Sword Pavilion had other intentions for her. They wanted to use this as experiential training. At the same time, they wanted to see if she would be lucky enough to earn a spot in the Ancient Desolate Tower.

However, no one expected there to be so much danger at the very start of the selection.

The other people present began to look for partners. Under such circumstances, being alone was very risky.

Jiang Zimo and Mu Xinya extended an invitation to Xiao Chen, but he shook his head in rejection.

Xiao Chen knew that the other party had kind intentions. However, he had the advantage of speed and was not afraid of such situations. There was no need to owe Jiang Zimo another favor over this.

Gao Yangyu was very pleased with the atmosphere. After he silenced everyone, he said, “After you obtain the iron medallion, anyone here can challenge you, as long as their cultivation is lower than half-step Martial Monarch. You must defeat them and obtain sixty victories.”

“Open the barriers!”

Without giving the crowd too much time to react, Gao Yangyu leaped out of the wrestling ring and waved his hands.

The meal barrier holding the thousand Rank 7 Demonic Beasts immediately opened. Thunderous footsteps resounded as all of the Demonic Beasts rushed out.

The Demonic Beasts salivated as their eyes gleamed scarlet, and they launched themselves into the crowd.

There were all sorts of Demonic Beasts. Some crawled on the ground, and some flew in the air. Some were wind-attributed, some were fire-attributed, and some were ice-attributed. There were all sorts of Demonic Beasts.

Suddenly, they all rushed at the crowd. A black Qi rushed into the sky, covering it. Their aura was frightening.

The crowd did not hesitate at all. They urgently retreated. At this point, no one dared test might of the horde of Demonic Beasts.

When the extremely hungry Demonic Beasts caught a whiff of the humans’ aura, they grew even more ferocious. No one would be foolish enough to test them now.

“Retreat!”

Everyone executed their Movement Techniques and moved quickly to the back, scattering.

“Boom! Boom! Boom!”

However, there were simply too many Demonic Beasts. The wrestling ring was only large enough to hold the Demonic Beasts without giving them too much space. Soon, cultivators and Demonic Beasts began to fight.

Four Beasts surrounded Xiao Chen. There was one several-meters-long Scarlet Metallic Snake as thick as an elephant’s leg with metallic scales, two Flame Wolves covered in black Qi and walking on their hind legs, and an extremely ferocious Lightning Ox.

“Hu Chi!”

The Scarlet Metallic Snake moved very fast, taking the initiative to attack. It opened its huge jaws and shot towards Xiao Chen, trying to swallow him whole.

“Xiu!”

Xiao Chen pushed off the ground and activated the Blood Flame Shoes. His speed instantly reached Mach 3.5 as he moved in an arc.

Xiao Chen’s figure flashed, and he landed on the Scarlet Metallic Snake’s head, stomping hard when he did.

“Dang! Dang!”

When the huge force struck the Scarlet Metallic Snake’s head, it gave off a loud, metallic ring. He had kicked its upper body into the ground.

“Rumble…!”

A deep pit appeared in the ground. Cracks extended from it into the surroundings.

Xiao Chen hovered in the air. His sole felt somewhat numb. He sensed that the Scarlet Metallic Snake had not received any fatal damage.

The Rank 7 Scarlet Metallic Snake specialized in defense. Its scales were as hard as Superior Grade Frost Iron. Weapons could not penetrate it, and it was difficult to deal with.

“Chi!”

A purple bolt of lightning flew towards Xiao Chen. The Lightning Ox had attacked as well. The two Flame Wolves, covered in black flames, rushed over alongside the bolt of lightning.

Xiao Chen smiled faintly and pulled his palm in. The purple lighting transformed into a whirlpool that spun on his palm, becoming a ball of purple flames.

Without the protection of states, Xiao Chen could collect as much lightning-attributed energy as he wanted.

Xiao Chen leaped into the air, moving back instead of forward. Then, he punched the two Flame Wolves. The purple flames on his hand slowly spread and encased the two Flame Wolves.

The Demonic Beasts were very intelligent. The two Flame Wolves had planned to take advantage of the moment Xiao Chen blocked the lightning, attacking.

Unfortunately, Xiao Chen was not afraid of the lightning. He pulled it in with the flip of the palm. The attack, which the two Demonic Beasts stored power for, would forever remain at this stage.

“Boom!”

The purple and black flames clashed relentlessly on the Flame Wolves. They exploded with intense heat, and the Flame Wolves were knocked to the ground.

After tumbling across the ground for a while, the Flame Wolves crawled to their feet miserably. Their fur was burnt to a crisp, emitting black smoke.

“Roar! Roar!”

When the Lightning Ox saw that the lightning it was so proud of had not damaged Xiao Chen, it angrily pressed forward with its colossal body.

The bodies of Demonic Beasts were, for the most part, stronger than cultivators’. When clashing using their physical bodies, humans usually suffered a disadvantage.

This was a move that many Demonic Beasts liked to use. If they used it well, they could even cause the cultivator internal injuries.

Unfortunately, the Lightning Ox faced Xiao Chen. He clenched his fist, and the image of a tiger and dragon spiraled around his arm, roaring ferociously.

“Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon!” Xiao Chen shouted and crossed his arms, receiving the Lightning Ox’s mad charge head-on.

“Bang!”

A loud crash resounded, but Xiao Chen did not move. The Lightning Ox bounced back at the same speed it crashed into Xiao Chen with.

“Dragon Hisses Tiger Roars!”

Xiao Chen leaped up. When he landed next to the Lightning Ox, he punched it with the power stored by the Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

“Roar! Roar! Roar!”

As Xiao Chen punched, the roars of the tiger and dragon rang out. The sound was ear-splitting. Intense explosions echoed within the Lightning Ox’s body.

“Hu chi! Hu chi!”

The Lightning Ox struggled as its entire body exploded with electricity. A purple light radiated as boundless electric sparks jumped across its body.

When the electric light surged, Xiao Chen’s hair and clothes fluttered. There even seemed to be some arcs of electricity jumping between them.

Xiao Chen felt no fear. He punched the Lightning Ox with his right fist. As the tiger and dragon roared, he continued pummelling it.

The Purple Thunder Divine Incantation circulated rapidly, and he constantly absorbed the electric light with his left hand. The electricity became a whirlpool, spinning rapidly.

After a while, Xiao Chen’s fist had shattered all of the Lightning Ox’s internal organs. The electric light finally faded.

The Scarlet Metallic Snake and the Flame Wolves took advantage of this opportunity to launch themselves at Xiao Chen. The three Demonic Beasts used their best moves.

The Scarlet Metallic Snake’s long tail slammed down with a huge force. The two Flame Wolves’ paws lit up with black flames, leaving a black comet tail as they swung their paws.

Xiao Chen turned around and looked at the fierce purple flames in his palm. Suddenly a thought occurred to him.

Can I use this purple flames to cast the Life Bestowal Spell? In theory, the Life Bestowal Spell can use anything as a focus. When it is at Great Perfection, it can even use the air.

Since Xiao Chen thought of it, there was no problem trying it out. He used his Spiritual Sense to split a strand of purple flame and quickly molded it into an electric flame eagle.

“Hu chi!”

Xiao Chen’s right hand made hand seals as he continued to exhaust the Mental Energy in his sea of consciousness and the Essence in the Qi whirlpool.

Using energy to cast the Life Bestowal Spell resulted in double the exhaustion. It was due to Essence and Mental Energy merging.

“Life Bestowal Spell!” Xiao Chen shouted, and the electric flame eagle instantly came to life. When it spread its wings, its wingspan reached ten meters.

The eagle crashed towards the descending snake tail. There was a shattering sound. The harder-than-Frost-Iron scales had shattered. The entire snake tail broke off.

“It really is possible. Furthermore, its might is so impressive.” Xiao Chen revealed a happy expression.

In the spectator stands, when Gao Yangyu saw this, his expression changed, “This move seems to merge Mental Energy and Essence. How did this brat do it?”

The Mental Energy of Martial Kings could not bear the berserk nature of Essence. This was something that only Martial Monarchs and above could grasp. Even a half-step Martial Monarch like himself had only a small grasp on it.

The Lightning Ox was dead, and the Scarlet Metallic Snake was severely injured. Xiao Chen only had to deal with the two Flame Wolves. Victory was almost guaranteed.

If Xiao Chen were not unlucky, there would be one iron medallion within each of the Demonic Beasts.

However, Xiao Chen’s performance was not the most impressive, but someone else’s.

The many cultivators in the spectator stands focused on the battle below. They observed and tried to figure out who to pick as their opponents.
