God and Devil World - Chapter 861-870
Chapter 861: Order of the Mech Lord!
When he saw those smart chips, Yue Zhong waved his hands and a mech of about 10m appeared out of thin air.
The Storage Ring was void of oxygen, thus it was not suitable to keep flesh and blood within. Furthermore, the Mechs did not need to breathe, that was why they could be kept in the storage rings.
This particular Mech, Hu Yanda, was a human-shaped robot with radars and displays. Its combat strength was at the Type 7 realm but considered weak, however, in terms of electronic battles, he was extremely strong. With the ability to scan his enemies, cyber-attacks, and calculations, he was adept and powerful.
The moment Hu Yanda appeared, 4 data lines appeared and connected to the 4 smart chips. After his system had been overridden by Bai Yi, countless streams of data overflowed the 4 smart chips, directly taking over the original consciousness.
Hu Yanda then retrieved the data lines, while the 4 Mechs that had their heads damaged by Yue Zhong quickly recovered, revealing their original state.
Once the 4 of them were restored, they came up to Yue Zhong and bowed, Master!”
He swept them a look, “Stay here and keep things status quo.”
They replied respectfully, “Yes!”
After that, he quickly charged for the outside.
Along the way, he relied on his sneak attacks to take out another 18 Mechs, and under Bai Yi’s guide, he arrived outside of the Fort.
The Gate of Hell had appeared on a desert area of Galastar, but it was already converted into a huge army camp.
Countless Mech Beasts were prowling and patrolling around the base.
The ones that Yue Zhong saw on Earth were the riff-raff of this huge army.
A number of gigantic floating spaceships were in the air, each of them over a hundred meters in length, possessing countless particle beams.
Yue Zhong had known from Bardonia’s intel that these powerful-looking and enormous Battleships were called Viper Battleships, and each of their particle cannons could injure or even kill a Type 6 expert.
Even so, within their ranks, they were classified as just A-grade, with a B-grade and even C-grade above them.
A B-grade Battleship could deal with a Type 7 expert, with its firepower even stronger than those of the Protector Battleships. In fact, even the Raytheon Cannon could not match the B-grade ones.
As for the C-grade ones, they could kill a Type 8 expert, and within the Mech Kingdom, there were only 8 of such ships, and they were controlled by the Mech Lords.
In the legends, there was even a D-grade one, which could harm a Type 9 expert with a single shot. It was rumored that it was controlled by the Mech Emperor. No one knew if it was true or false, not even Bardonia.
Yue Zhong swept a glance across the camp and thought, “I must leave this place first. If I do anything here, the Mech Kingdom will react quickly. By that time, it will be impossible for me to return to Earth.”
With a plan in mind, Yue Zhong quickly activated his Stealth and left.
Along the way, he could see sentries and numerous Mech Beasts stationed every step of the way.
On top of that, within the navigation routes and tunnels, there were radars and sensors constantly sweeping for threats.
Furthermore, he could sense with his Second Order God-Devil Body, that there was a strange wave that was being emitted throughout the camp. Once there were any strange movements, it would be picked up immediately.
Since he was wearing the Stealth Armor, which was considered a Treasure of Hope, it could block off most of the sensors and heat radars. However, under the threat of that strange wave, it was likely that he might be exposed if he were to make a random move.
However, Yue Zhong also had Bai Yi, and as she controlled the sensors, she could control them to release some distortions, allowing Yue Zhong to traverse through.
As he was walking, all of a sudden, there was a huge sound of alarm within the camp.
Countless Mech Beasts walked out from various parts of the camp, forming a neat formation as they followed the routes.
As they gathered in numbers, Yue Zhong finally saw for himself how terrifying they were in numbers. There were many types, with different body sizes and limbs, some with wings, others with powerful frames, all equipped with massive weapons of war.
The moment he saw those mechs, Yue Zhong felt an overwhelming pressure, and his face fell, “Was I exposed?”
There were only enemies everywhere in this camp, the moment he was exposed, then no matter how strong he was, the chances of him surviving were minuscule.
“No! That’s not right, if I was already exposed, there would have been firing!”
Due to his experience of countless battles, he had reacted quickly, and not acted rashly. Instead, he retracted all signs of himself and stood quietly by the roadside.
The huge army continued to march forward in formation, while Yue Zhong stood and listened to the thundering footsteps.
The numbers and weight of the Mechs caused the ground to rumble without stop.
He looked at them and sighed, thinking quietly, “Not afraid of death, suited for both offense and defense, compliant with orders. Such Mech Beast are the best and most ideal of soldiers. It would be incredibly tough to overcome them.”
If such an army was to be controlled by Bai Yi, then even a Type 8 expert would be injured or even killed.
Yue Zhong then thought, “Since it was not me, there must have been something that happened. Otherwise, they would not have deployed so many. Let’s go take a look.”
With a flash of his figure, Yue Zhong quickly ducked in beside a spider-like Mech Beast and ran towards the distance.
After marching for about 60m, the huge Mech army came to a huge, vast plain.
Currently, there were many Mech Beasts as well as a horde of Mutant Beasts engaged in slaughter. Cannons fired everywhere amidst bright blasts, while flesh and blood splattered, as the center of the battlefield had transformed into a huge meat grinder. Many Mutant Beasts had been reduced to dust under the relentless assault. At the same time, many Mutant Beasts were tearing Mech Beasts into bits.
On the battlefield, there were all sorts of Mutant Beasts, some dozens of meters tall, others reaching even hundreds of meters in height. On Earth, they would be invincible, sweeping aside any country. Due to their might, the Mech Beasts were being destroyed every second.
Only those who were sentient were able to keep themselves alive, regenerating even when their bodies were smashed apart. As for the ordinary Mech Beasts, they lacked such abilities, once they were destroyed, they would lose their combat strength.
The sentient Mechs could make use of their parts to regenerate due to their smart chips and could control cells on the individual level, thus achieving an immortal effect.
Yue Zhong observed the battlefield and locked on to a particular corner, was 200,000 sentient Mechs stood quietly. He went towards them silently.
Those on the battlefield were the cannon fodder, while these sentient Mechs were the true main characters.
The moment Yue Zhong got close, Bai Yi retrieved a flurry of information and relayed them to Yue Zhong.
“The great Mech Lord Murphyte had issued a command, killing a Type 3 Mutant Beast is worth 1 contribution point, exchanging its nucleus is also worth 1 contribution point. Killing a Type 4 Mutant Beast is worth 10 contribution points, and likewise for the exchange of its nucleus. A Type 5 is worth 1,000 points, a Type 6, 100,000 points, and a Type 7 10,000,000 points. A Type 8 is worth 1 billion points, but its nucleus is worth 5 billion points. Please do your best in slaughtering the Mutant Beasts and obtain more points. In the future, you may use this to get the Kingdom to help you evolve in realm.”
“Killing a Type 7 is worth 10 million points, that’s great! With it, I can exchange for a B-grade particle cannon, and kill a Type 7 expert if I can hit him!”
“If only I can kill a Type 8, worth a total of 6 billion points, I can directly purchase a C-Grade inexhaustible energy source, pushing my strength up another tier. I would be closer to the Type 7 realm then.”
“This time, this battle is the best chance to evolve, I need to kill more and reach the Type 5 realm!”
Among these Mechs, they were all exchanging conversations with excited feelings.
Chapter 862: Galastar Virtual Network!
The sentient Mechs of the Mech Kingdom could also evolve, through killing Mutant Beasts, defeating their enemies, and obtaining all sorts of treasures in exchange for contribution points. They could then exchange all these for parts, enhancing themselves to the limit, before going through the Evolving Temple of the Mech Kingdom to upgrade to a higher-level Mech. Therefore, such points were extremely important.
Yue Zhong then had an idea, “I’ve already enslaved a dozen Mechs, with almost 10 million worth of points. If I want to exchange, I need to grab one of these sentient Mechs and infiltrate the Kingdom.”
10 million points were worth about a few million Type 4 Nuclei. It was a sizeable fortune.
The Mech Kingdom was extremely advanced, with enough contribution points, they could produce weapons that could threaten Type 8 experts as well. If Yue Zhong could obtain a few of those, then there would be some insurance against the Mech Kingdom.
Yue Zhong could only think of all possible ways to strengthen China’s strength and threshold, otherwise, the fate of his people would be too terrible to imagine. Humanity would either be enslaved or killed.
After the orders were given, the sentient Mechs quickly gathered in their own teams and flew off towards the battlefield.
Many who were hoping to evolve went on their own, after all, while it was safer in groups, the benefits had to be shared. The contribution points they could obtain would be lesser as a whole.
Of course, each of these lone rangers was an expert and had vast combat strength.
Seeing them leave, Yue Zhong swept his gaze and chose a Type 6 close-combat specialist to follow.
Although the battlefield was chaotic, it was under surveillance. If those long-range Mechs hidden at a distance were to disappear and reappear on the battlefield, it would be suspicious. On the other hand, it was more likely to subjugate a close-combat specialist.
The Type 6 Mech which Yue Zhong had set his sights on quickly transformed into his battle state, transforming into a human-shaped warmachine of about 8m in height, dragging a long alloy blade. His claws were also sharp and long.
After transforming, the Type 6 Mech shot into the midst of the Mutant Beasts, slashing out with his claws and blades, directly tearing a 20m Type 4 Python apart.
The gravity on Galastar was a 100 times stronger than Earth. In order to deal with it, the monsters are smaller in sizes. While it was common to see Type 4 Mutant Beasts of over a hundred meters on Earth, Galastar had numerous at the 4-5m range, while 20m and above were considered gigantic.
As he dashed into the crowd of Mutant Beasts, he weaved in and out at the speed of sound, his claws dancing about, tearing up numerous Mutant Beasts into chunks, with not a single one able to take a single hit from him.
Yue Zhong could not find any opportunity, thus he followed behind just like a ghost.
The performance of the Type 6 sentient Mech was outstanding, and one Type 5 Mutant Lizard with a thick layer of scales had a vicious look in its eyes as it dashed through an area while being bombarded by one of the A-grade Battleships in the sky, pouncing towards the Type 6 Mech.
The Type 6 Mech swept the Type 5 Mutant Lizard a look and charged right at him with a vicious look of his own.
Yue Zhong’s eyes turned bright, as he activated his Type 7 Shadow Steps, and got within 10m of the Type 6 Mech.
When the distance between the Type 6 Mech and Type 5 Mutant Lizard was about 3m, the Type 5 Mutant Lizard slashed out viciously.
The Type 6 sentient Mech raised his own claw and blocked.
At that instant, Yue Zhong increased his speed, and got behind the Type 6 Mech, immediately grabbing him and slamming his entire frame into the Type 5 Mutant Lizard.
The countless blades of the Type 6 Mech slashed into the chest of Type 5 Mutant Lizard, as his body, as well as Yue Zhong, entered it.
The claw of the Type 5 Mutant Lizard slashed out at empty air, as blood burst forth and it screamed out in pain.
Inside the chest of the Type 5 Mutant Lizard, Yue Zhong’s claw grabbed the head of the Type 6 sentient Mech, pulling out the smart chip, and inserted a cable to it. Bai Yi then proceeded to overwrite the information of the Type 6 Mech.
Bai Yi was able to exhibit different strengths depending on her medium of conduct. Against the Type 7 Mechs, she needed the Protector Battleship, or a being like the Type 7 Hu Yanda that was a mobile central computer, to be able to attack their cores.
Against the Type 6 close-combat types, the handheld tablet was enough, but of course, it would take more time.
“Niu Meng greets Master!”
In a few breaths, the Type 6 Mech had been enslaved and became under Yue Zhong, reporting to him with respect.
Yue Zhong ordered, “Open up your cockpit, and let me in!”
Niu Meng quickly opened, “Yes! Master!”
The cockpit was extremely advanced, and the moment Yue Zhong entered, he could access Niu Meng’s sight and perception. With a single thought, he could control how Niu Meng fought, and what options were redundant. At the same time, he could transfer his own strength into Niu Meng itself, raising its capabilities.
At the same time, knowledge flowed into Yue Zhong’s sea of notification from Niu Meng’s own, and Yue Zhong could access any part of his memory.
Yue Zhong felt the incoming information and felt enlightened, “Combining the Mech’s combat strength and the pilot’s combat strength, it would achieve an effect more than 1+1. This is the direction of interplanetary evolution, if these sentient Mechs could be piloted by outstanding pilots, a Type 6 Mech could easily crush a Type 7 pilotless Mech.”
If Yue Zhong could find a few talented pilots, then even if their personal strength might not be high, by piloting these evolved Mechs, they could exhibit a powerful strength. In that scenario, Yue Zhong would not be fighting a war by himself anymore.
Yue Zhong then controlled Niu Meng to tear the Type 5 Mutant Lizard apart. In a breath’s time, he charged through the head of Type 5 Mutant Lizard in a shower of blood and flesh.
After killing that Type 5 Mutant Lizard, Yue Zhong allowed Niu Meng to continue to slaughter the Mutant Beasts, while he himself kept tabs on the Galastar Virtual Network and the messages flowing in.
Once he was on it, he could feel his consciousness sucked into a mysterious place, and he reappeared on a street, in the shape of Niu Meng’s human-form.
On the street, Yue Zhong took a look around, and he could see countless forms of beasts and mech, like tigers, tanks, airplanes, and even a bug.
Within the Galastar Virtual Network, everyone could alter their appearance as they wished, the only thing that could not change was their identity number and names. Some of them were willing to walk around in the network in human-shapes, while some others preferred other strange forms. Of course, most of them chose to use the human-form.
Apparently, it was because the Mech Emperor himself used a human avatar inside the Virtual Network, thus, most of the other sentient Mechs followed suit.
One tortoise asked curiously, “Niu Meng? How are you here? Weren’t you deployed to the 1st Battlefield?”
“1st Battlefield, how lucky Niu Meng. You still dare to enter here while on the battlefield, you don’t want your life anymore?”
A number of curious emails were sent over, most of them Niu Meng’s friends.
Yue Zhong replied indifferently, “I’m here to check up on some intel.”
Hearing that, the rest stopped pestering him.
On the battlefield, sometimes, the sentient Mechs would come across tough enemies, and while battling, they would access the Virtual Network on information to deal with their enemies.
Sentient Mechs had powerful computing powers, and multitasking was nothing much to them. Even the most ordinary sentient Mech could access information while fighting an enemy. With the Virtual Network’s help, the sentient Mechs could emerge victorious even though they were at a disadvantage and suddenly kill their enemies.
Chapter 863: Exchanging a B-Grade Particle Cannon and B-Grade Laser Blade!
On the Galastar Virtual Network, Yue Zhong could call up any information with just a thought.
In a flash, countless information flowed into his mind.
Amidst them, he could see the parts needed for Mech Beasts and weapons of war, that could cause one to go blind with greed.
Yue Zhong looked through and thought to himself, “Those ordinary Type 4 Mech Beast just require a nucleus to exchange. It’s so cheap, if I can exchange for 100 million of them, I could sweep through any force on Earth.”
While they were good, it was impossible for him to bring back 100 million to Earth. He quickly abandoned the idea and looked through the other options.
“This is!! The body of a Type 8 Mech Lord!!” Yue Zhong caught sight of something as his eyes brightened before he quickly frowned. “How much is it…? Holy shit 30 billion points!! Too expensive!!”
In this exchange list, the strongest item was this body of a Type 8 Mech Lord. If Yue Zhong could obtain it, and input the Heart of Hope inside, before entering to pilot it, it was likely that he could fight against a Type 8 expert. However, the price was astonishing, and he had no means of exchanging.
Yue Zhong then made his choice, “Forget it, let’s exchange for a B-Grade Particle Cannon and B-Grade Laser Blade. If this Mech installs these 2, its fighting prowess should increase by 10 times.”
In an instant, he had spent 2 million out of his 100 million points.
Above the battlefield, about 3km in the sky, there was a huge, round mechanical fort, of about 500km in diameter. At the moment that Yue Zhong chose those 2 items, one door opened up at the side, and out flew 2 items that shot towards the ground.
Yue Zhong pulled out from the Galastar Virtual Network and controlled the Mech Niu Meng to slaughter the Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts.
“You have exchanged for a B-Grade Particle Cannon and B-Grade Laser Blade, please accept your items.”
As Yue Zhong was piloting the Mech to tear through the head of a Type 3 Mutant Beast, a sound rang out in Niu Meng’s head, at the same time, the 2 items shot downwards from the sky.
Yue Zhong then controlled Niu Meng to step back.
One Type 4 Green-scaled Ape and a Type 5 Black-Scaled Huge Python pounced towards Yue Zhong, when all of a sudden, the 2 items shooting down slammed into the bodies of the 2 Mutant Beasts.
Following a large blast, both Mutant Beasts had their bodies broken, as blood and flesh splattered, their bodies deep in a ditch caused by the impact of the 2 shooting stars.
Yue Zhong took a step forward, arriving in front of both ditches, and waved his hands. 2 black armored balls flew out from the ditches.
The moment the 2 armored balls entered his hands, they opened up to reveal the 2 items within. One was the B-Grade Laser Blade, the other was a 500mm B-Grade Particle Cannon.
Yue Zhong directly pressed the B-Grade Particle Cannon to the Mech’s shoulder and pressed a button, allowing the fusion of the part into the frame. He could sense clearly that he was able to immediately control the weapon to fire out.
“Very good, now that I have these weapons, I can start to slaughter the Type 7 Mutant Beasts.”
His gaze swept across the center of the battlefield, and he could see all sorts of large, gigantic Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts.
The main characters at the center were not those Type 5 or Type 6 Mutant Beasts though, instead, they were the Type 7 Mutant Beasts, many of them over 1km in length, covered in thick and powerful scales.
The defense of the Type 7 Mutant Beasts was too sick. The A-Grade cannons of the Viper Battleships in the skies could kill a Type 6 expert with a single hit, but when dealing with those Type 7 Mutant Beasts, they could not even penetrate those scales.
The Type 7 Mutant Beasts continued to weave through the horde of Mech Beasts, slapping out with their massive bodies, turning them into a pile of scrap metal.
One particular Type 7 Scarlet Flame Dragon that had a body that was entirely red, and looked about 70% similar to a Tyrannosaur Rex, opened its huge jaws and spat out a huge breath of flames.
Under the fierce blazes, many of the Mech Beasts melted directly, turning into puddles of liquid metal.
Not even the sentient Mechs with smart chips were spared under those merciless flames, turning into liquid.
One Mutant Giant Lizard with a body length of 1km and 6 tails charged out and dashed through the horde of Mech Beasts at the speed of sound, its tails slapping out constantly, destroying many of the Mech Beasts.
These Type 7 Mutant Beasts had terrifying combat strength, each one of them equivalent to a calamity. Whenever they charged, it felt like the ground was shaking and there was no way of stopping them. Even the Type 7 sentient Mechs had to work in groups just to deal with one of them.
Within the Mech Kingdom, there were not many Type 7 Mechs, and they belonged to the nobility. They had tyrannical combat strength, and on this battlefield alone, there were 80 of them, with 10 in a group, separated into 8 different groups to deal with the 8 Type 7 Mutant Beasts.
However, the total number of Type 7 Mutant Beasts were 9, with 1 not defended against. That single beast was a Type 7 Mutant Bronze-Bashing Black Boar. Its body was 1 km in length, covered entirely in black scales, while sharp spikes protruded out of everywhere, and it had 3 long tails shimmering like shooting stars.
The Type 7 Mutant Bronze-Bashing Black Boar was extremely ferocious, charging through the Mechs while braving the firepower. Behind it, there were 50 other Type 6 of its clan, as well as numerous Type 5, Type 4 and Type 3 variants. This entire species was led by their Type 7 leader, tearing through the ranks of the Mechs.
200 Type 6 Mechs had revealed their core forms, attacking the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar wildly. However, other than a rare few which possessed the B-Grade weapons to injure it, the rest could only deal minor damage to it, which it recovered from very quickly due to its insane regeneration.
The Type 7 Mutant Black Boar continued to terrorize the Mechs with a frightening speed, far beyond what their reinforcements could offer.
Yue Zhong stared at that Type 7 Black Boar with a heated gaze, “That’s the one!! It will be my first prey, after killing it, I will definitely continue to evolve!”
In the past, he would have barely been an ant-like existence to such Mutant Beasts, not being able to tear apart their defenses in the slightest. However, he had grown to reach a realm capable of challenging such Type 7 Beasts.
With a thought, Yue Zhong controlled Niu Meng to charge towards the center of the battlefield.
Immediately, the Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts surged towards him.
Venom, bone spikes, ice shards, flame pillars, all sorts of attacks were thrown at Yue Zhong and the Mech Niu Meng he controlled. Although he tried his best to dodge, most of them still struck the Mech.
However, the defense of the Type 6 frame was truly powerful, when faced with that many attacks, there seemed to be no lasting effect.
Yue Zhong controlled the Mech to unleash a slaughter on the surrounding Mutant Beasts, carving out a path for himself.
After slaughtering numerous Mutant Beasts, he finally arrived at the center of the battlefield.
Currently, the battlefield was like a meat grinder, with countless beams and flesh and blood flying everywhere. The main forces were also the Type 4 and Type 5 Mutant Beasts.
On Earth, Type 4 and 5 Mutants Beasts would be considered overlords of their own territories, however, here, they were barely cannon fodder. The true overlords were the Type 7 Mutant Beasts.
The corpses of the Mutant Beasts were piling up into a small mountain.
‘Let’s have me some fun!”
With a flash of his body, he leaped onto the headless corpse of a Mutant Beast over 150m tall, and aimed the recently-obtained B-Grade Particle Cannon, firing it at a Type 6 Mutant Black Boar.
That single beam tore through space, slicing through the head of the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar.
When it pierced through, fresh blood splattered out of the wound in the forehead of the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar.
Chapter 864: Battling the Mutant Bronze Bashing Black Boar Horde!
After unleashing that single hit, Yue Zhong felt that the Mech had expended about 25% of its energy. He frowned, “This B-Particle Cannon is truly powerful, but the consumption is too high! I can only fire 4 of such shots?”
When the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar took this hit, it did not die immediately. Instead, it let out a shriek of agony and looked towards Yue Zhong with a hate-filled gaze.
Hearing that wail, the meat tank-like Type 7 Mutant Black Boar immediately turned around, its gaze sweeping past Yue Zhong, cold and dangerous.
Immediately, it led its little kin as they all surged towards Yue Zhong.
“That’s Niu Meng!
“Did he exchange the B-Grade Cannon and Laser Blade to deal with this Type 7 Mutant Beast?!”
“How could a Type 7 Mutant Beast be so easy to deal with? Who among us do not have such weapons? Even so, we’re still not a Type 7 Mutant Beast’s opponent. He’s too rash! This time, it’s likely that he’s going to go back in pieces.”
The many Type 6 Mechs looked at the horde of Mutant Black Boars charging towards Yue Zhong and discussion broke out. Even so, on account that they were all Mechs, many of them raised their weapons and began firing at the horde.
Under the flurry of assault, many of the lower-level Mutant Black Boars were blasted to pieces. They were all at the Type 4 or Type 3 stage. The defense of those above Type 5 was too shocking. Even when they were blasted continuously by those powerful weapons, it was not enough to take them out in one hit.
Against the charge of the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar, Yue Zhong’s eyes narrowed. He did not retreat, instead, charging forth at it.
“Is he insane?”
The other Type 6 Mechs saw Yue Zhong charging towards the Type 7 Mutant Beast and were filled with disbelief. To them, this was practically courting death.
Both sides got closer and within a breath, the distance had been pulled to 300m.
The eyes of the Mutant Black Boar flashed dangerously, as its tails began to emit energy, before slashing towards Yue Zhong.
The speed of the tails on the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar was incredibly fast, such that some Type 7 Mechs could not even dodge its attacks.
As a Type 7 expert, with a Second Order God-Devil Body, Yue Zhong was definitely above other Type 7 Mechs. He had already seen through the attack and quickly piloted Niu Meng to twist his body, flickering towards the side of the tail.
The hammer-like tail brushed past Yue Zhong, slamming into the ground, causing a huge crater, as cracks appeared in the ground.
After dodging that attack, Yue Zhong leaped up with all his strength, landing on the back of the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar.
He had just gotten on when the other 2 hammer-like tails slammed towards him with uncanny accuracy and agility.
Both tails came from different directions, sealing all possible escape routes.
No matter how Yue Zhong maneuvered, the Mech would be slammed by those tails and turned into a pile of scrap metal.
With a flash in his eyes, Yue Zhong summoned all his strength and channeled it into the Mech. The speed of the Mech rose insanely and charged towards the outside of where the tails met. In a split second, he had rushed out of the sealed space, evading the sure-hit by a breath.
“He dodged it!”
“Holy, he actually survived from that attack! That’s unbelievable!”
This Niu Meng is an absolute genius of our Mech Kingdom, he actually survived an attack from a Type 7 Mutant Beast!! That’s insane!”
When those Type 6 Mechs saw what happened, they were all shocked.
As for Yue Zhong, he quickly dashed up towards the head of the heavily-injured Type 6 Black Boar. The B-Grade Laser Blade hilt in his hands swung about, extending into a 6m-long laser blade.
With a thought, he caused a huge sword dance before slicing through the wound of the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar, further aggravating it.
The armor of the Type 6 Black Boar was truly tough, even an A-Grade cannon could not pierce through it. However, in front of the B-Grade Laser Blade, the hide was torn apart easily.
The blood and flesh of the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar were twisted and slashed through, as Yue Zhong continued to drill further until one could see the brain.
Yue Zhong thrust the Laser Blade mercilessly into the brain and began to wave his Laser Blade about like a madman, grabbing the Nucleus. He then jumped and ran off to another direction.
As the Type 6 Mutant Black Boar slumped dead, a large amount of life force entered Yue Zhong’s body, filling him with a sense of comfort.
He thought, “As expected, I need to kill Mutant Beasts to proceed with my evolution. Otherwise, no matter how I cultivate, it would be difficult to reach the Type 8 Divine Warrior.”
The rest of the Mutant Black Boars shrieked out in misery at the sight of their comrade’s death, as they charged towards Yue Zhong.
In a breath, those Mutant Black Boars had rushed up to Yue Zhong, swinging their tails, as those hammer-like tails slammed towards him.
Facing those attack, it was impossible for Yue Zhong to complete dodge all of them.
He immediately executed a profound movement technique, weaving in and out of the attacks, before he was still struck by one Type 5 Mutant Black Boar.
As the tail slammed into the Mech Yue Zhong was in, it caused a loud reverberation.
Under that attack, the Mech was dented in, as a large force traveled through and struck his body.
If it were an ordinary Type 6 expert that faced such an attack, his internal injuries would be severe, maybe to the point of death. However, to Yue Zhong, it was nothing.
Other than the Mech being dented, Yue Zhong had no feeling. Instead, he jumped high into the air, and leaped on top of the head of the Type 5 Mutant Black Boar, his Laser Blade slashing out and tearing into the head of the Type 5 Mutant Black Boar, slicing up the contents of the skull.
After obliterating the brain of the Type 5 Mutant Black Boar, Yue Zhong charged out, through the chest area, and into the body of another Type 5 Mutant Black Boar, exerting all his might into slicing through the skin.
The horde of Mutant Black Boars began to get agitated, unsure what to do. Within a few breaths, he had already pierced through multiple Black Boars, covered in blood, getting further away from the Typed 7 Mutant Black Boar.
As Yue Zhong continued to traverse through the bodies of the Mutant Black Boars and turning them into corpses, life force continued to surge into him, slowing increasing his strength.
The life force of a Type 5 Mutant Beast exceeded that of a Type 6 Divine Warrior. While it was not enough to push him into the Type 8 realm with a single step, it was still beneficial in laying his foundations.
The Type 7 Mutant Black Boar watched Yue Zhong slaughter its subordinates and was shocked and furious. It had not imagined that a puny human would dare to slaughter its kind so brazenly. It wanted to kill him immediately, but right in front of it were its countless subordinates. There was no way it could just brush past them to kill Yue Zhong.
Without the attack of the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar, Yue Zhong continued to tear through the other lower-level Mutant Beasts like a tiger among sheep. Within a short time, he could make use of the Mech to tear through the beasts and obtain their nuclei.
“If I want to kill a Type 6 Mutant Beast with my Mech’s strength, it is difficult. I might have a chance against the Type 7 with my true body, but not with this Mech.”
Yue Zhong continued to plan and calculate while killing the smaller Beasts. He had slaughtered a number of Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts, however, in order to truly achieve another breakthrough, he needed to kill a Type 7 Mutant Beast. However, he could not do so without risking discovery of his presence, thus he had to limit himself through the Mech.
“After so many battles, and obtaining a Type 6 Nucleus, the Mech has somewhat recovered, let’s give it a try.”
He swept a glance throughout the Mech’s status, and turned around, before charging right at the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar without a hint of hesitation.
Chapter 865: Killing the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar!
When the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar saw Yue Zhong challenging its might once more, it was finally enraged beyond reason and began to channel its innate ability, Ground Manipulation.
At that instant, the ground began to shake for a radius extending dozens of miles, as though the entire earth was raging against Yue Zhong.
Beneath his feet, the ground split opened, revealing a deep chasm, intending to swallow him up.
Yue Zhong’s face fell, and the Mech quickly fired out jets behind its back, charging away from the bottomless abyss.
The eyes of the Type 7 Black Boar glowed viciously, swinging out its tails as they slammed towards Yue Zhong with the force of mountains.
The speed of the tails was slower than the first time, but Yue Zhong’s expression turned worse. He knew that while the speed was slower, the trajectory was within the control of the Type 7 Beast, and as long as it shook, it could alter the direction to injure Yue Zhong heavily.
In the presence of danger, Yue Zhong’s head would become clearer. His eyes gleamed brightly as he kept his gaze fixed on the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar. His Mech suddenly twisted and revealed the B-Grade Particle Cannon as he fired off at the beast, blasting its eyes.
The eyes of any gigantic beast are usually the weakest points. The Type 7 Mutant Black Boar was no different. The B-Grade Particle Cannon tore through the eyes, causing blood to splatter out as it shrieked out in agony.
Under its rage and pain, it swung its tails faster by another 30% and started to attack Yue Zhong viciously.
Yue Zhong only responded with an action, as the Mech split apart into 16 metal spheres as they shot towards the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar.
As the tails slammed down, 11 of the spheres were directly crushed, meaning that the Niu Meng Mech was now down to 5/16 of its power.
The remaining 5 spheres shot out far from the range and reformed into a Mech a distance away. However, its current size was only 5m-tall, with the B-Grade Particle Cannon and Laser Blade intact.
After dashing through the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar’s attack, Yue Zhong controlled the Mech to soar towards the injured eye. It was the only weak point of the Type 7 Black Boar right now, and it was the opportunity he was banking on to defeat this beast.
At this time, there was a savage glint in the eyes of the Type 7 Black Boar, and it opened its huge mouth to suck in deep.
A terrifying hurricane appeared and exerted a powerful suction on Yue Zhong.
The Mech was only left with 5/16 of its original power, and it was not an aerial-type either, thus it was powerless to resist the suction.
Yue Zhong’s eyes brightened, without the intention of resisting. Instead, he boosted his thrusters, and increased his speed, charging towards the mouth of the Type 7 Black Boar.
When the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar saw Yue Zhong flying into its mouth, its eyes flashed with cunning and viciousness and clamped down mercilessly.
“Not good!! I’ve been tricked!”
Yue Zhong saw rows of sharp teeth the moment he entered the mouth. At the same time, the moment the teeth clamped down, there would be no space to escape, and everything within a hundred meter square would be crushed.
At that instant, Yue Zhong did not bother hiding his abilities anymore and channeled everything into the Mech.
Receiving the bulk of Yue Zhong’s strength, the Niu Meng Mech began to groan, apparently, it was a huge burden for its frame as well.
However, his strength was pushed to the max and the Mech shot towards the throat in a blink.
With a loud gnashing sound, the teeth of the Mutant Black Boar snapped shut, and although Yue Zhong had given it his all, half the Mech was still crushed within the teeth.
With a thought, the bitten half was separated.
At this time, the large tongue of the Type 7 Black Boar that had been hidden in the throat came slithering out, intending to envelop him. The moment the tongue appeared, it came at full force and speed, not intending to let Yue Zhong go.
Yue Zhong wielded the large Laser Blade and slashed out, meeting the incoming tongue with multiple profound blade beams.
In a shower of fresh blood, the tongue was sliced off part by part.
Yue Zhong then landed on the tonsils and pulled out a huge alloy blade to thrust into the inner walls of the Beast’s throat, allowing him to stand.
After affixing himself there, he waved the huge Laser Blade without mercy, carving out a huge hole in the mouth, as blood flowed out without stop.
The Type 7 Mutant Black Boar thrashed about and struggled in the agony, running around amok and crazed.
Many Mutant Beasts and Mech Beasts alike were crushed under the rampage of the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar.
“This is blood essence from a Type 7 Mutant Beast, it is beneficial to my Blood Manipulation ability. I need to take some. But not too much, otherwise, the Mech Kingdom will suspect something.”
Yue Zhong looked at the Type 7 Beast blood and his eyes brightened. With a wave of his hands, a blood radiance flew out, and stuck itself to the wound, as it began to exert its own suction on the blood essence.
While the blood radiance was doing its own thing, Yue Zhong began to carve his way up into the brain of the beast by waving his B-Grade Laser Blade.
The blade was sharp and powerful, and Yue Zhong continued to carve his way up, finally reaching the skull.
After tearing apart flesh and spilling blood, as well as shattering numerous nerves, Yue Zhong finally found the brain and began to dig into it with his Laser Blade. He then grabbed out at the Type 7 Nuclei.
With the death of the Type 7 Black Boar, a huge amount of life force was absorbed into Yue Zhong’s body and finally ignited a change. The thick and abundant life force flowed into his God-Devil Nucleus, turning into a gold fog that began to enhance his body, pushing him further onto the path of evolution, finally reaching the high-Type 7 realm.
Yue Zhong could feel the surging force within him, as he became excited, “Very good, I’ve achieved another minor breakthrough. I can already sense domain laws, once I’ve reached the peak of the Type 7 realm, I might understand it better. This God-Devil Body is truly wonderful. In such a short time of my evolution, I’ve already grown so much! After killing some more Type 7 Mutant Beasts, I’ll be able to reach the peak Type 7 realm and finally be invincible among those of the same realm!”
Planet Uros was a cultivation planet, and while the humans there could not reach the Type 8 Divine Warrior realm and understand domains, their ancestors had been like Yue Zhong, going through countless Gates of Hell to experience other worlds and thus, accumulating training techniques and knowledge.
Domains were unique to those geniuses of the Type 8 and above. It was something that most Type 8 experts would strive to achieve, and even most ordinary Type 8 Divine Warriors might not possess one.
Yue Zhong had assumed that all Type 8 experts would have a domain because the sensation from the God-Devil Body gave him the feeling that in order to progress to the Type 8 realm, he had to understand a domain.
In fact, many of those experts who possessed the God-Devil Body would already surpass mortals, evolving towards the direction of God. Once they broke through the Type 8 barrier, they would immediately grasp the concept of domains, and become powerful, undefeatable existences.
After killing the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar, Yue Zhong charged out from the body of the Type 7 Black Boar.
At that instant, he felt a strong sense of death looming.
Chapter 866: Type 8 Winged Wyrm King!
At the moment when Yue Zhong exited the corpse, from afar, an entirely silver Type 7 White Wyrm stared and channeled its innate ability towards Yue Zhong.
A bunch of frozen air blades shot through the air, slamming towards the region, turning it into a frozen tundra.
Yue Zhong had just piloted Niu Meng out, when he was struck by the freezing breath and was immediately encased in ice, immobilized.
Inside the cockpit, Yue Zhong could feel the cold invading him as well, freezing even his God-Devil Body.
He began to think, “What a terrifying Type 7 Mutant Beast. If this goes on, even I will be frozen, and cease to think. Unless I burst forth with my true self, and break out, otherwise, with the Mech’s strength, there’s no way I can escape. These Type 7 Mutant Beasts cannot be underestimated.”
The innate abilities of Type 7 Mutant Beasts were usually overbearing and terrifying, even among Type 8 experts, they would be affected. Yue Zhong was piloting a Type 6 Mech, and there was no way he could resist the biting cold.
The moment Yue Zhong was frozen, the Type 7 Scarlet Flame Dragon also opened its huge jaws and fired out a blazing trail of flames at him.
The moment he was struck by those flames, then the Type 6 Mech Niu Meng would definitely melt. Even its smart chip would be destroyed, with no chance of revival.
Yue Zhong took in all these and did not retreat immediately, “What do I do? I can only wait. Damn it, I really looked down on these Type 7 Mutant Beasts. Seems like I need to escape back to Earth.”
When Yue Zhong had evolved his God-Devil Body, his strongest skill was the Devil Flame, which had then evolved into the God-Devil Flame. It was even stronger than the flames of the Scarlet Flame Dragon. As long as he shrouded himself in his God-Devil Flames, he could withstand the incoming assault.
Seeing that the Mech that Yue Zhong was in about to be destroyed, a searing hot meteor shot down from the skies, slamming into the frozen tundra, shattering the ice.
There was a tripod within, containing a round sphere engraved with strange runes and powered by a Type 6 nucleus. It was glowing brightly, as it enlarged into an energy shield, protecting Yue Zhong within.
The bright flames of the Scarlet Flame Dragon slammed into the shield, almost melting it, but it managed to withstand the damage, as the air distorted from the heat.
As the flames were about to burn through, Yue Zhong grabbed the ball projecting the energy shield, and charged up into the sky, flying towards the camp of the Mech Kingdom. He had already expended most of the Mech’s energy dealing with the Type 7 Mutant Black Boar, and his current strength had depleted. Even a Type 5 Mutant Beast could damage his Mech. It was not suitable to remain in the midst of battle.
Far away from the sea of Mutant Beasts, there was an overwhelming pressure, as an enraged voice sounded, “Murphyte, you dare to act?! Are you not afraid of my wrath?!”
In the skies, there was a huge floating platform far above the battlefield, as a cold and stern voice sounded, “Winged Wyrm King, it was your Poison Dragon Canyon then acted against us first! Our Mech Kingdom is not so easily bullied, you had better leave behind 1,600 Type 6 Mutant Beast nuclei, apologize and scram, otherwise, today will be the day we wipe out your Poison Dragon Canyon!!”
“Dogfart! Go to hell!! Get the hell away from the Gates of hell!! Our Poison Dragon Canyon must get to Earth to evolve! That place holds opportunities for us! If you don’t want to scram, I will tear you all apart and destroy your smart chips, truly wiping you out!”
With a loud roar that could shake the heavens and earth, a being that looked somewhat like a dragon, with a body of over 5km in length, and a pair of huge dragon wings soared out, releasing a powerful pressure. It stared at the huge fort floating in the skies, its eyes filled with a heated gaze.
On Earth, where the potential of evolution was at its peak, many biological life forms were constantly growing. It was an opportunity for this peak-Type 8 Winged Wyrm King. Because of this, it had led these many Mutant Beasts against the Mech Kingdom in order to go through the Gates of Hell.
With evolution, these Mutant Beasts would become even stronger, and possess an intellect that would not lose out to humans. The Type 8 Winged Wyrm King could already speak in multiple languages.
Murphyte’s voice rang out once more, “Annihilate us? What a joke. This Galastar is our Mech Kingdom’s, If you damn beasts stay obediently within your canyon and gorges, things are still negotiable. If you dare come and challenge our might, you can all go to hell.”
With that, a satellite floating in space adjusted its cannon and fired out many beams at the battlefield.
Under the seemingly endless particle beams, many Mutant Beasts were directly obliterated.
All the Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts were either killed or incapacitated, while the Type 5 ones were heavily injured.
Only those of the Type 6 realm and above managed to withstand the damage, even so, it was not pleasant.
The Type 8 Winged Wyrm King snarled out with rage at the sight of his subordinates’ death, “Murphyte, you dare to use the satellites to kill my people! I will not forgive you!! I will tear out your smart chip one day and smash it!!”
Faced with the multitude of blasts, in just a few breaths’ time, over a million Mutant Beasts had died. Such a figure was also painful to the Type 8 Winged Wyrm King.
It flapped its wings and disappeared from its location, reappearing in front of the mechanical fort, slashing out with its claws.
The fort then glowed brightly, as an energy shield was activated, blocking the assault of the Type 8 Mutant Beast.
When the 2 Type 8 powerhouses slammed into one another, a terrifying shockwave blasted outwards in all directions.
A powerful hurricane appeared, blowing in all directions, as a number of Type 4 Mech Beasts, as well as Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts, were blown away.
Yue Zhong eyed the battle from afar, his heart full of regret, “What a pity it isn’t time to reveal myself. Otherwise, I really want to go and engage them in battle.”
After that, he turned around and quickly soared towards a far distance. He had already earned enough contributions for killing the Type 7 Mutant Beast and could rest. After all, it was not reasonable to expect a Type 6 Mech to continue battling a Type 7 Mutant Beast.
The Mech Kingdom had sent its Mechs towards the battlefield to grant them experience, helping them evolve, and not to treat them as cannon fodder. The true cannon fodder was the mindless Mech Beasts.
The support camp was in the air, a huge floating island of over 10km in length. On it, there were many tall structures that reached towards the stars.
The floating island was full of shade and one could see all types of flowers and plants. It looked extremely beautiful, as though it was a paradise.
Many sentient Mechs, albeit injured from battle, were laying among the plants, receiving treatment from a number of male and female slaves of various species.
One particular Mech that had only its lower body left was carried by 4 bull-head creatures, as he spoke, “Niu Meng, you’re truly valiant, to think you took out a Type 7 Mutant Beast!”
“Well done Niu Meng! This time, you performed so brightly, you will definitely be drafted into the Army, don’t forget us old friends then!”
Once Yue Zhong landed, over a few Mechs came over and expressed their congratulations.
With a Type 6 strength, killing a Type 7 Mutant Beast was a terrifying result. In the span of a thousand years, that had only been 3 others who were capable of that. One of them had fallen during the passing of time, while the other 2 had become part of the Mech Lords. They were recognized widely and had high prestige. Seeing ‘Niu Meng’ accomplish such a fact, many of them were elated for him.
Upon gaining sentience, these Mechs knew emotions as well, including escaping from danger, valuing their lives, as well as bootlicking.
Chapter 867: Exchanging for Treasures!
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Alright! When I, Niu Meng, reach the elites of the army, I will not forget everybody.”
He then handed the niceties to Niu Meng to handle, while he stepped into the Galastar Virtual Network, sourcing for treasures.
“Star Luo Technique, this can allow the flesh body to be trained to the Type 9 stage, it only requires 10 million points. Cheap!”
“Type 7 human slave, 10 million points for 1. Type 7 White-winged human slave, 30 million points for 1.”
“Type 6 human slave, 100,000 points for 1.”
“So many slaves! They’re all from foreign races, there are actually Type 7 and Type 6 humans caught and sold here! This Mech Kingdom is truly terrifying.”
Yue Zhong looked through the list and felt incredibly shocked.
A Type 7 Divine Warrior was an invincible force on Earth. Even for the planet Uros, where cultivation was rife, the Saint Lord and most of the other Elders would be at that level.
And yet, such powerhouses were being sold here like slaves, and it was not just a single one. The true power of the Mech Kingdom was incredibly terrifying.
Through Niu Meng’s memories, Yue Zhong knew that there were nanochips set to go off in the brains of these slaves.
The moment any of them dared to harbor any ill intents, they would be killed by the nano bombs.
Most of the slaves that had been caught were already wiped clean of their memories and brainwashed. They were practically blank pieces of paper, with no inkling of their past, and only knew to swear fealty to their owners.
Without such measures, just considering the blood feud between these slaves and the Mech Kingdom, it would not be possible to truly subdue such powerhouses.
“What a pity, there’s no Type 8 ones. Otherwise, if I buy one and kill him, I might be able to reach the Type 8 realm. But then again, even if there was one, I probably can’t afford it. The price should be in the billions. Forget it, let’s buy a few Type 7 powerhouses and bring them to Earth, they can hold the fort there.”
Just as he was excited and prepared to buy, his face fell, as he remembered a problem, “No good, the Type 7 experts of this world cannot go through the Gate of hell. Even if I purchase them, they can’t go to Earth.”
“That is to say, the strongest I can purchase would be the Type 6 experts. However, in the exchange list, there are also treasures that can raise the flesh body. I can only groom a few Type 6 slaves with those treasures, otherwise, if a Mech purchase so many, it would raise suspicions.”
With a thought, Yue Zhong pulled out the list and chose 3 stunning beauties in the Type 6 realm.
After that, he then purchased a B-Grade Inexhaustible Power Source, as well as a B-Grade Energy Shield, followed by the Star Luo Technique, and a number of treasures to boost the flesh body. After that, he exited from the Virtual Network.
When he came out from the network, he began to watch the battles through the display screens earnestly.
The ongoing battle was extremely cruel and violent, with beams and abilities flying everywhere. Each of the Type 7 Mutant Beasts was enraged, and their innate abilities were being cast over the entire region.
Yue Zhong saw a number of Type 7 Mechs being frozen before blasted by the flames from the Scarlet Flame Dragon, melting into puddles of alloy liquid.
The intense battle continued for 2 days and 2 nights, before the Mutant Beasts, under the numerous injured and countless deaths, retreated at the sight of the never-ending backup from the Mech Kingdom.
The Type 8 Winged-Wyrm King had already comprehended a domain and was suppressing Murphyte. However, Murphyte was able to hold his own through various means and was able to resist the attacks. The Winged-Wyrm King had no choice but to retreat as well.
Although the Type 8 Winged-Wyrm King held the advantage in the battle between the upper echelons, its subordinates were being slaughtered by the Mech Kingdom’s army of Mech Beasts.
The Type 8 Mutant Beast also know of the might of the Mech Kingdom, if it chose to fight on, it would perish in the end.
The Mech Kingdom’s Army had their land-based machines as well as aerial ones. There were even powerful Mech Beasts that could take on the Type 5, Type 6 and even Type 7 Mutant Beasts.
Once the number of Type 5 Mech Beasts reached a certain figure, it would be threatening to the Type 8 Winged-Wyrm King as well.
After the intense battle, there were only corpses and countless mech parts laying everywhere on the battlefield.
Numerous Mechs poured onto the battlefield, retrieving the metal parts as well as the corpses of the Mutant Beasts, cleaning up the area.
The parts could be reused under proper treatment, while the Mutant Beasts corpses could be used in the production of other weapons and armors.
Not too long after, on top of the huge fort, there was a burst of radiant light, as a handsome Mech stepped out, exuding pressure.
“I’m Murphyte, now, everyone, heed my orders. Niu Meng, for killing a Type 7 Mutant Beasts, killing a number of Type 6 Mutant Beasts… You will be promoted to Mech Baron. You have been drafted into the First Army, 5th Battalion. Zhang Mo, for killing….”
Hearing his words, all the Mechs around Yue Zhong looked at him enviously.
The Mech nobility had prestige in the Kingdom and was usually comprised of Type 7 or some rare talented Type 6 Mechs. All these nobility could reside within the Mech Capital where the Mech Emperor lived and had direct command over their own fleet of 50,000 Mech Beasts.
Furthermore, they had special privileges, if they saw any other Mech warriors to their liking, they could organize exchanges, and there would be no qualms or objections from the lower classes.
Because of this, many Mech warriors fought hard to become nobility.
In this battle, other than Yue Zhong, or rather, ‘Niu Meng’, no one else was promoted to nobility. Even the 2nd place who had killed 4 Type 6 Mutant Beasts had not received a promotion.
Murphyte swept Yue Zhong a gaze, as he spoke sternly, “Niu Meng, from today on, you have to work hard for the Mech Emperor, as well as the Mech Kingdom.”
Niu Meng got down on one knee, “Yes! From today, I will strive to battle for the honor and glory of the Mech Kingdom and our great Majesty!”
Murphyte nodded slightly, “Disperse! Head back to your camps.”
“Yes! Fort Lord!”
The rest of the Mechs got down on their knees as well.
Murphyte’s original body was the entire fort itself, thus everyone had referred to him as the Fort Lord. Only those of the Mech Lord class could be addressed as Lords.
The moment Murphyte’s figure disappeared, one of the rooms of the metal city opened up, as a number of black mechanical balls shot out towards those Mechs that were injured.
Seeing those balls, all the sentient Mechs had expressions of glee on their faces. When the balls arrived in front of them, they quickly rushed to absorb the ball.
These black balls contained superior cells, and while the sentient Mechs could make use of their smart chips to produce new cells, it would eat into their base strength. Whereas the new, superior cells provided by the Mech Kingdom were much better alternatives.
Yue Zhong controlled Niu Meng to soar into the sky, and exerted a suction force on the nearby black balls, absorbing them into his body.
Upon assimilating with the cells, Niu Meng regained his peak strength, and in fact, continued to break through to the peak-Type 6 realm.
“Damn it! If he wasn’t a nobility, I would not let him off.”
“What the hell, isn’t that too much?!”
When the sentient Mechs below saw this, they could not believe it.
Yue Zhong did not care, in any case, they were his enemies, regardless of how they viewed him, it was irrelevant.
A distance away, on a huge battleship, 20 Type 7 Mechs were observing.
One of them, a blond-haired Mech frowned, “Stinky brat, he actually snatched the cells of others.”
One Mech that looked similar to a black man, laughed out loud, his eyes flashing with a teasing look, “Haha! So what? We are the noble class, those are just ordinary folk. They should sacrifice for us. Halledor, aren’t you just jealous that Type 6 kid managed to kill a Type 7 Mutant Beast?”
Halledor’s face sunk as he snorted coldly, “Just a Type 6 ant, what can he do? He was just lucky!”
Chapter 868: Challenge!
The Mech that looked like a black man laughed out, with obvious ill intent, “Luck is also part of strength! Oh yes, he had just risen to the noble class, and might not know our customs. Halledor, go teach him well.”
Halledor stared fixedly at Yue Zhong with a cruel look as he sneered, “Oh yes, I will teach him well, about our customs.”
One young-looking Mech spoke up, “Don’t go overboard.”
Halledor replied half-heartedly, “Relax, Rega, I will not.”
After absorbing the cells to recover, many Mech warriors began to embark on their own ships to be transported back to their residences.
“Over there? If I board that ship, I can head to the core of the Mech Kingdom.”
Yue Zhong swept a gaze and saw the huge battleship where the Type 7 Mechs were gathered, a heated look in his eyes.
Once he entered the center, he could think of a method to infiltrate one of the armories.
If he could steal the treasures of the Mech Kingdom, his strength would be able to improve, and could even retaliate against their attacks.
Yue Zhong had just embarked the ship, when a female Mech with an icy, beautiful look came up to him, dragging a container of over 10m in height and 30m in length.
The female Mech shot out 2 beams of light into Niu Meng’s forehead, revealing a silver number.
She then spoke in a cold, robotic voice, “ID JXDG876548765, Name: Niu Meng, confirmed. Niu Meng, I’m the delivery person, Wendy. These are the items you have exchanged on the Virtual Network. Please confirm and receive the items.”
After that, the huge container revealed a number of compartments, each of them containing the items that Yue Zhong purchased.
Among them, there were 3 absolute beauties, each of them with a collar around their necks, their eyes unfocused.
Yue Zhong was clear that once he took off those collars and keyed in his command, he would become their master.
The 3 beauties were all at the Type 6 realm, just slightly less powerful compared to the Saint Children of Planet Uros. If they were placed on any other human planet, they would be idolized and revered, but here, they were slaves, traded like commodities, truly miserable.
Through Niu Meng’s memories, Yue Zhon knew that the overlords of Galastar were the sentient Mechs.
Within the Kingdom, other than the Mechs and Mech Beasts, there was an additional class, the slaves. As the Mech Kingdom governed Galastar, they would launch conquests on other planets with life, and capture the inhabitants as slaves, given to the sentient Mechs as playthings.
With intellect, many of these sentient Mechs were focused on their evolution as the first priority, but at the same time, many sought pleasure in slaves of other races and species. Some would use them as sparring partners, others as pets, while some pit them against one another. These slaves to the Mechs were like dogs and cats to humans.
Yue Zhong swept those 3 ladies a look, and he became even more resolute, “I definitely cannot fail, otherwise, this is the fate of my people. Our lives and deaths would not even be in our control.”
Wendy pulled out a board and handed it to Yue Zhong, “These are the items you purchased. If there are no issues, please sign here.”
Yue Zhong took it over, and with a flash, there was the sound of an acknowledgment.
Right at this time, there was an insidious laughter, as Halledor walked over, reaching out to grab the collars of those 3 absolute beauties, “Wow, Niu Meng, you bought pretty good items. Let’s see, I’ve set my sights on these 3 women. Gift them to me.”
The other Type 7 Mechs also crowded over, intending to watch a good show.
Yue Zhong swept the cold Wendy a look, before frowning and shot forwards, blocking in front of the 3 women, as he bellowed in rage, “Scram! Damn dog with a short oil pipeline, you better scram far away. You dare to touch my private property, I will tear you apart like a dog!!”
“Haha! Halledor, he just mocked you for having a short oil pipeline!”
“Hahaha! Halledor, did you girlfriend find it too short, that’s why she left with Jack?”
“Hahaha! Halledor, a newbie had just scold you, how useless of you.”
All around, the callous and snide laughter rang out.
Halledor’s face turned steely, as he gritted his teeth, and stared at Yue Zhong, “Stinky brat, you looking to die? I wanted to just teach you a lesson, but seems like you’re forcing me to kill you, in order to ease this hate! I challenge you, do you dare accept?! If not, you can scram out of the Mech Imperial Army!”
The oil pipelines were the Mechs”special organs’ and mocking them was a huge insult to the Mechs
“Forget it! Halledor, why blow this out of proportions?”
“Yeah, Niu Meng, just apologize, and hand those 3 people to Halledor, and we can all forget about this.”
Hearing those words, those Type 7 Mechs who were laughing and joking immediately turned serious and tried to coax him
A life-and-death battle was the cruelest method of settling a grudge. Once it began, only one could survive. Only when things were extremely bad and both parties had a deep set grudge that could not be resolved would propose this method.
Furthermore, it was usually used as an intimidation move, as if one party rejects, he or she would be viewed as weak, cowardly, and lacking a sense of honor. The other Mechs would then ostracize the Mech and outcast him or her.
There was a cold light in Yue Zhong’s eyes, as he replied, “Life-and-death Battle, sure! Let’s go right now!! Move! If you still have an oil pipe, let’s go right now!”
Halledor laughed out savagely, as he glanced around and declared, “Everyone, you’ve seen him, it’s not that I wasn’t merciful, but this kid doesn’t know his place, and challenged me. Let’s go, see who’s lacking an oil pipe.”
After that, a pair of wings appeared behind his back, and jet steam shot out, supporting it towards the arena.
Yue Zhong grabbed out, installing the B-Grade Inexhaustible Energy Source into Niu Meng, feeling the surge in strength.
Yue Zhong did not give the rest a chance to even dissuade him, as he transformed into his close-combat form, grabbing his B-Grade Laser Blade and charged towards the platform.
“Damn it, shit got serious!”
“That Niu Meng is truly bad-tempered!”
When the Mechs saw what was happening, they exchanged helpless looks.
One of them spoke up, “All we can do now is to go and watch!”
After that, the entire group made their way toward to the arena.
The arena was a platform of complicated terrains stretching for some distance. Once a battle started, unless one of them perished, the battle would not end.
Halledor stared at Yue Zhong coldly, “Stupid brat, I’m giving you a last chance. Hand over your points, and kill those 3 women yourself. Get on the ground and lick my feet. I will give you this chance to regret, otherwise, it’ll be too late when I tear out your smart chip and destroy it later.”
Yue Zhong laughed coldly, sneering back in challenge, “This short oil pipe fellow, just bring it on. It’ll be your death anniversary next year.”
“Fine! Fine! Fine! I’ll let you know the difference between a Type 7 and Type 6, the distance between heaven and earth! I will take my time to kill you, and show you what true terror is!!”
Halledor had a cruel look as he transformed, swiftly turning into a robot that looked like a mix between an eagle and a dragon, with a pair of mechanical eagle wings. His entire body was green, and over 10m long, with a sharp long blade for a tail. There were multiple cannons located throughout his body, as well as 4 B-Grade Particle Cannons on his back.
As he transformed, the separation barrier came down at that moment, and Yue Zhong immediately charged forwards in a zig-zag manner, dashing towards Halledor madly.
Chapter 869: Killing Halledor!
Halledor laughed out coldly, as some spheres flew out from his back, surrounding his body.
Within the spheres, beams shot out at Yue Zhong. These beams were capable of tearing apart a Type 6 powerhouse.
Halledor was only one person, but with the aid of these spheres, his firepower was equivalent to a squadron of ranged Mech Beasts.
Yue Zhong’s figure flickered, dodging those beams like a specter, at the same time, he activated the energy shield.
Under the relentless assault of the laser beams, Yue Zhong continued to dodge, but the energy shield was still struck by one of the beams.
When the beam slammed into the shield, it rocked the entire defense system, almost crushing it. Although it managed to withstand the hit, the resulting recoil sent Yue Zhong flying back a few meters.
Seeing that the assault was successful, the beams adjusted and turned into a fire net that enveloped Yue Zhong.
The moment Yue Zhong was caught, he would be shredded apart into countless pieces.
“That Niu Meng seems to be full of air, he isn’t nothing much!”
“He could defeat a Type 7 Mutant Beast, it must be due to luck. In terms of ability, he’s definitely far from Halledor’s standard.”
The Mechs began to discuss. To them, Yue Zhong was seeking death by challenging Halledor.
“As expected, this Type 7 Mech is powerful, in terms of the physical differences, it really is too much of a gap. However, since the pilot is me, this Mech has to die.”
There was a cold glint in Yue Zhong’s eyes. With a thought, the B-Grade Inexhaustible Energy Source was pushed to the limit, as strength surged through Niu Meng’s frame, causing it to turn red, and all the cells were in overdrive.
“Overdrive!! He actually went into overdrive, is he tired of living?”
“Overdrive, he truly is gutsy, is he planning to risk it all?”
Seeing how ‘Niu Meng’ was now red and every single cell seemed on the verge of exploding, all the Mechs took in a cold breath.
Overdrive was a limit that all Mechs were capable of. Once in it, their strength would be boosted by a huge margin. However, it was unstable, and if done for long, the smart chips would be damaged. Furthermore, it was hard to control one’s frame when in overdrive. Once the Mech loses control and crosses the limit of the smart chip, then only death awaits.
After Yue Zhong went into overdrive, with a thought, he sent a bout of energy to protect Niu Meng’s smart chip, while he looked towards Halledor, and emitted a powerful killing intent.
Halledor felt that intent, and his heart turned cold, but he quickly roared out in anger, “So what if you’re in overdrive?! You’re not my match! Die!!”
In a flash, more spheres came out from Halledor’s back, forming a cluster that shot attacked Yue Zhong rapidly.
While in overdrive, Niu Meng’s speed was raised by more than twice. His entire frame shot towards Halledor like a shooting star, even when 2 particle beams slammed into the shield, the energy shield managed to withstand it.
In a few breaths, Yue Zhong had already appeared in front of Halledor, pouncing on him as though he was a leopard that saw its prey. He brought out his blade and slashed downwards viciously.
A number of strange runes glowed behind Halledor’s back, as a huge B-Grade Energy Shield formed out of thin air, blocking in front of him.
Yue Zhong swung the B-Grade Laser Blade down on the B-Grade Energy Shield, and amidst bright sparks, the blade only managed to slice through about 20cm, without any further movement.
“B-Grade Laser Blades cannot slice apart B-Grade Energy Shields!! Niu Meng!! Go to hell!!”
Halledor saw how his own shield had withstood Yue Zhong’s strike and heaved a sigh of relief, before his eyes flashed savagely, and swung his sharp tail towards Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong did not manage to kill Halledor in that strike, and slashed out viciously, before swinging himself towards the side.
As for the sharp mechanical tail that came swinging, it struck thin air.
With his body in mid-air, Yue Zhong twisted, and aimed his B-Grade Particle Cannon, unleashing a powerful blast at the shield.
Seeing the B-Grade Beam, Halledor’s eyes flashed with fear.
The B-Grade Particle Cannon could kill a Type 7 powerhouse in a hit, and was exceptionally devastating, not to mention that the distance was so close.
That blast slammed into the energy shield, causing it to dent in, before the force directly sent Halledor shooting towards the ground, blasting out a huge crater.
The Mechs did not have flesh bodies and had no blood or organs to be displaced. Halledor immediately tumbled and got back up, extending multiple cannons as they fired at Yue Zhong.
The rapid missiles covered a huge area, expending a lot of Halledor’s energy. However, as long as he could maintain it till ‘Niu Meng’ collapsed, he would win.
Especially the 4 B-Grade Particle Cannons on his back, they were constantly adjusting their aim, searching for signs of Niu Meng to fire.
With Yue Zhong’s current situation, once he was hit by a B-Grade Particle Beam, he would die instantly.
While in mid-air, he separated the Mech into 5 round balls with a thought, that quickly descended towards the ground.
The moment they touched the ground, they rejoined to form the close-combat Mech.
At that instant, Yue Zhong quickly ascertained the weak spot in Halledor’s form and turned into a flash of light that shot towards the shield.
He braved past the countless beams, and both hands formed a number of shadows that resulted in over a thousand blades that slammed into the B-Grade Energy Shield.
Facing that attack, under Halledor’s astonished gaze, the B-Grade Energy Shield that he was so proud of collapsed.
After losing Halledor’s protection, Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed fiercely, as the B-Grade Laser Blade slashed out in a radiant manner towards Halledor’s head.
With that bright flash, Halledor’s mechanical head was sliced cleanly off.
Even so, he was not yet dead, as his headless frame continued to swing the tail towards Yue Zhong.
With a loud blast, Halledor’s tail slammed into Yue Zhong’s body.
However, at the moment before the tail slammed into Yue Zhong, Yue Zhong had already caused the lower portion of the Mech to be detached with a thought.
Halledor’s tail then slammed into the bottom half, destroying it.
Yue Zhong continued to pilot the upper half to grab Halledor’s head portion, and with a swift motion, dug out the smart chip inside the damaged head.
“No!! Don’t kill me!! I apologize!! I’m willing to hand all my belongings to you!! Spare me!! Please don’t kill me!!” With his head destroyed and smart chip exposed, Halledor’s mechanical mouth immediately screamed out fearfully.
“Hmph! Begging for your life now is too late!! Go to hell!”
With a cold laugh, the Mech’s claws crushed down in front of Halledor’s shocked gaze, and its smart chip was obliterated, leaving behind a Type 7 Nucleus.
“Halledor was killed by him!”
“Halledor is dead?!”
“This Niu Meng is just a Type 6 Mech! How is it possible to defeat Halledor?”
Seeing Halledor’s death, all the Mechs were shocked. A Type 7 Mech’s capabilities far surpassed a Type 6 Mech, and Halledor might not be the most exceptional fighter among the Type 7 Mechs, but he was not some weakling. Yet, he had been killed by Yue Zhong, and it was truly shocking.
After killing Halledor, the energy shield over the entire arena dissolved, and ‘Niu Meng’ took out a Type 6 Nuclei and consumed it.
When the Type 6 Nucleus entered the B-Grade Inexhaustible Energy Source, it was directly transformed into energy.
At the same time, it coursed through Niu Meng’s smart chips, swiftly producing more cells as he quickly regained his peak combat strength.
Chapter 870: Comprehending the Flame Domain!
After regaining his strength, Yue Zhong turned to glare at the rest of the Type 7 Mechs coldly. He let out an icy laugh, before flickering away. As a human, he was bound to be at loggerheads with the Mech Kingdom, it was naturally impossible to forge any relationships.
“So arrogant!! What a reckless kid.”
“Truly prideful, I wonder how far he can go like that?”
The hearts of the Type 7 Mechs were filled with dissatisfaction, as they began to gossip. However, no one went to challenge him.
As he arrived in front of the main battleship of the Mech Kingdom, Yue Zhong grabbed the huge container and dragged it out.
Soon after, the rest of the Type 7 Mechs returned as well, embarking on the battleship.
Once they were all on board, the huge battleship began to fire up, spitting out huge jet streams, turning into a flash of light as it shot towards the distance.
Yue Zhong entered his own room, and got Bai Yi to disrupt any potential surveillance, before stepping out of Niu Meng in his human-shape.
Yue Zhong then walked up to those 3 beauties, their eyes still unfocused, with the collars on the necks, and reached out to grab the collars. With Bai Yi’s help, he sent his life force into the collars, and entered their consciousness, branding them with the knowledge of him being their master.
At the moment he branded them, they regained their consciousness and came up to Yue Zhong to pay their respects.
Yue Zhong asked, “What’re your names?”
The leader among them, a tall and ravishing beauty with black hair spoke up, “Master, we have no names. I’m No.1, and they’re No.2 and No.3 respectively. Please assign names to us, Master!”
Of the other 2, one was a blond, with an explosive figure, while the other was a petite loli but with huge breasts.
Both of them looked at Yue Zhong pitifully and expectantly, hoping for them to give them their names.
These humans that had been caught by the Mech Kingdom had been brainwashed entirely and wired to obey every single command of their masters. Unless they could surpass the Type 9 realm, otherwise, they would still be a Type 9 slave, with no allowance of any ill intent towards their masters at all, or the nano-bombs would go off.
Yue Zhong tapped them and gave them their names as requested, “Alright, you shall be called Yue Ying, you, Yue Xing and you, Yue Lian.”
When they obtained their names, the 3 of them were elated, and bowed once more, “Thank you, Master, for granting us names!”
Within their consciousness, Yue Zhong, as their master, was their closest kin, and worthy of their admiration and respect. As long as he treated them well, they would do everything for them, even if they had to die. This was the power and might of the Mech Kingdom.
Yue Zhong pointed to the container and said, “Go and cultivate. Remember, only till the peak of the Type 6 realm. The resources are for you to use as necessary,”
The 3 of them responded, “Yes! Master!” before turning towards the container full of treasured resources.
Seeing them leave, Yue Zhong then went to the other side of the room. With a thought, the alloy wall contorted and turned transparent, allowing the occupant to see outside.
Below the huge battleship, there were only clouds. However, among them, Yue Zhong could see a few floating forts.
The Mechs were of different sizes, some of them even bigger than the Mech Lord Murphyte. The smallest was still at least a few hundred kilometers. All these floating Forts were littered throughout Galastar, acting as a deterrent that could easily suppress any uprising from anywhere.
With the satellites in space, the moment there was some upstart anywhere, the information would be relayed quickly and dealt with in a short time.
In the thousands of years, it was unclear how many elites of the various species had perished under the laser beams of these satellites and forts.
Not too long ago, when the Mech Kingdom was battling the Mutant Beast horde, the Type 8 Winged-Wyrm King had the upper hand, but his side still lost, because of those lasers from the satellites and forts.
Yue Zhong stared out at the wondrous landscape before him, and thought quietly, “On such a dense planet, if anything were to happen, it will be dealt with quickly. These Mechs are different from humans, they do not get tired, and can work 24 hours, observing the entire planet. Without Bai Yi’s help, I would have been revealed. The best case scenario after an intense battle would be that I could escape back to Earth. This Mech Kingdom is truly terrifying.”
After a moment of thought, he pulled out the Star Luo Technique and began to read it.
The Star Luo Technique was a move that came from a talented Type 9 genius who was gazing at the universe and got a sudden burst of inspiration. It was truly an astounding technique.
However, in front of the might of the Mech Kingdom, the planet that Type 9 genius came from was still eradicated, and he himself had been killed by the Mech Emperor, and thus, the Star Luo Technique ended up in the Mech Kingdom’s hands.
“Observing the movement of the stars and universe, cultivating a great Dao. This technique is spectacular. However, it is not of use to me. Only comprehending a domain and spatial laws would be useful right now.”
Yue Zhong looked through the entire Star Luo Technique and sunk himself in contemplation of the laws of domains and space as written by the author.
After reaching the Second Order God-Devil Body, Yue Zhong’s talent for cultivation had become heaven-defying, and regardless of whatever he read, he could understand. This Star Luo Technique and the principles about domains and spatial laws within were giving him new insights.
“Domain! What is a domain? It is the realization of the concepts of a technique that a cultivator trains in. Those who cultivate in flames would be able to incinerate things around him, and he could make use of the energy and strength to totally suppress an opponent of the same rank. If a person cultivates a water domain, then within his domain, it would be endless water, preventing the opponent from displaying his or her strength. In order to produce a domain, one has to understand the principles and underlying concepts, before materializing it into a domain. Invincible among those of the same realm and stage, even allowing one to leap ranks to fight enemies above.”
“In the universe, the basic laws are gold, wood, water, fire, earth, wind, lightning. The derivative rules are speed, strength, light, darkness, desecration, and sacrament… The highest law is space and time.”
“Only those who comprehend spatial laws can achieve a breakthrough into the Type 9 realm. With a thought, one can rip a hole in space and travel miles. At the same time, one could transcend space and worlds, attacking enemies and moving the mountains and seas.”
“With time laws, the most mysterious of laws. I’ve never seen anyone comprehending it. Maybe, only the God above could possibly hold this heaven-defying principle. Without comprehending this, one would not have the right to challenge God. My whole life, ever since I’ve cultivated to my level, I’ve been to many worlds, and have always been invincible. Yet, I still don’t have the confidence of dealing with God. I hope that the future generation can comprehend and wield the power of time, and challenge that entity that toys with all of us.”
Yue Zhong flipped through the Star Luo Technique and saw the tyrannical words of the author, Star-Lord. This was truly a genius.
“To train till the Type 9 realm, and comprehend domain, as well as spatial laws. Such an expert had still fallen. Truly, there’s always a mountain beyond a mountain. This Star-Lord was almost invincible, and yet, he had perished in the end. How strong is the Mech Emperor exactly?”
Thinking to how such a powerhouse had been taken down by the Mech Emperor, Yue Zhong’s heart was filled with trepidation towards him. He estimated that even with all his trump cards, he could at most handle a Type 8 Mech Lord at most right now. However, it was a death wish to go against the Mech Emperor. He might not even have the chance to run.
Yue Zhong threw the thoughts behind and started to cultivate, “Forget it, I’d better train hard and raise my strength. If I can’t do so in this short amount of time, when the army descends upon Earth, there’s only death for humanity.”
“My strongest ability right now is the God-Devil Flame, in that case, let’s try and comprehend the Flame Domain.”
Yue Zhong began to follow the pointers in the manual, and with a thought, the golden God-Devil Flames that could incinerate a Type 7 expert condensed in his hands. He stared at it fixedly and began to observe and try to comprehend the Flame Domain.
In the process, he felt like his mind was sifting through countless laws and principles. After a few hours, a blazing hot flame exuded from his body, enveloping the region around him.
“Success!!” Yue Zhong’s eyes regained their clarity, and he was overjoyed. Once he trained in it successfully, he could gain another trump card. With the Flame Domain, against a Type 8 expert, he was able to hold his own now, even going so far as to kill the weaker ones.
