Third Dungeon Battle: Conclusion

 

The small, red-haired girl had obviously been inside the armor. This was Core 666 after using humanization.

“Core 666 detached!”
“Detached… she could do that?”

Her red hair was like fresh blood, her red eyes like blazing fire. As if to announce that the armor was inelegant, she was an Ojou-sama that wore a red-based dress with white frills. Even her appearance matched her attribute.
Looking like it grew from her hand, Core 666 took out her fire magic sword and swung it down towards the captured Black Armor, slicing off the chains that held it down… it looks like she went a bit too far, though, as there was a gash on the Black Armor now.

Its freedom regained, the Black Armor clenched its fists and stood back-to-back with Core 666.
The Sahagins launched more chains at them, but this time the two of them somehow managed to cope and avoid them.
—Its movements are different from just a moment ago. Is her master operating it now?

Still though, did Core 666 come out from inside the armor and humanize?
—No, that’s not it. That magic sword. It looked like it grew from her hand, but was it actually like that? In other words, is it that her body is part of the magic swo—
… [Magic Sword]… when Core 666 isn’t using humanization, is that her true appearance?

“Haku-san. Magic swords… could they be monsters?”
“Oh? You didn’t know? Among the world’s magic swords, seventy percent are monsters.”

I just discovered a jarring fact.
Seventy percent. Seventy percent of magic swords aren’t items, but monsters.
Well, there’s stuff like Living Armors, so it’s not that weird that there’s also Living Weapons. Just, for it to still be called a magic sword…
… Ah, come to think of it, our magic swords are Golems, huh.
In that case, to make a magic sword—

“Kehma, what should we do!? How can we win!?”
“Whoops, I was lost in thought there… Well, how about we deal with the Black Armor first? Golem Corps!”

I gave the orichalcum wire to the Golem Corps.
It’s what used to be in the submerged area. I had them collect it and bring it there.
There were handles at the ends of them to make them convenient to carry, so there’s no problems for them throwing it all.

“Take this!”

Having weights attached to their ends, I had them mixed in with the large number of chains and all thrown at once.

# Team Demon King’s Point of View #

 

“Fufu, a place like this won’t be my end!”

Separating from the bound Living Armor she was operating, Core 666 let go of the magic sword (herself).
Then, humanizing from a magic sword, she grasped onto a sword with the same ability as the magic sword that was her true appearance by using a skill named [Doppelganger], she cut off the chains that were restricting the Black Armor.
[Doppelganger] was like an alter ego, but if the [Doppelganger] sword was broken, she would die as well. It was that sort of skill.

“There’s no time to summon Skeletons. I’ll leave the armor’s operation to master, let’s deal with it all ourselves.”
[Got it.]

Leaving the Black Armor that still had the Dummy Core in its abdomen to her master, she cleared away the chains assailing them with her flame-clad magic sword. Her master also manipulated the Black Armor, continuing to brush away the chains with its empty hands. It was too much for a single person to handle, but they could manage with the two of them. Every direction was covered.

“If it’s like this, we can do it.”
[Yeah.]

Chains continued to be thrown at them. Once again, Core 666 used her magic sword and her master used the armor’s hands to clear them—
Shlink!
—However, trying to brush them away, both of the Black Armor’s arms and its neck was severed.

[Huh?]

Something with an extreme sharpness was mixed into the chains, a few passing barely centimeters above Core 666’s head.
With a bang, two heavy iron weights hit the ground. A super fine wire stretched between the weights, pulled taut. It was able to withstand the force of being pulled both despite being such a thin wire. This is what cut through the Black Armor just before, it was the same orichalcum thread as before.

[Is it the same thing as a bit ago…? It’s way too sharp.]
“Oh? Master, look at what you’ve done to my armor…”
[Sorry.]
“… Well, perhaps I should have expected this to happen after allowing you to use it? I can’t leave my back to you anymore… You legs look fine, though. Master, just run around. It will be a little harder, but it should be alright if you pay careful attention to where you’re running.”

The Living Armor wouldn’t die from something like this. However, the chains and well as that super sharp orichalcum thread was thrown at them once again.
Dashing between them, Core 666 intercepted the orichalcum thread with her [Indestructible] magic sword. It fell to the ground… she’d have to be careful so as to not sever her feet.

“Those weights at the ends of the wires will serve as a mark for where they are. The armor doesn’t have [Indestructible], so make sure to avoid it.”
[Yeah. Aidi, you be careful too. Only your sword has [Indestructible] after all.]

They separated from each other. If they ran in different directions, their enemies would have to attack multiple spots.
The Tentacle Slime used the moment they separated as a chance to come back in. It appeared to target the Black Armor that couldn’t use magic to attack. Conversely, Core 666 aimed at it.

Another set of weights flew towards each of them. Core 666 didn’t bother evading, relying on her sword to block it.
The Black Armor avoided it by moving far to the side. However, its body was sliced in two through the middle.

“Eh—”
[Huh—?]

The orichalcum string that was caught by her magic sword fell to the ground.
The Black Armor’s upper body slammed onto the ground with a bang, its lower half collapsing to its knees.
They didn’t know what happened. The Black Armor should have avoided the string. Yet here it was, cut in two.
As expected, even the Living Armor would die after being cut in two through the center of the torso, the largest part of its body.
The Dummy Core that had been hiding inside of its upper body had already dropped to the ground. Fortunately, it looked to still be intact… however, as they were deep inside enemy territory and it was without the protection of the Black Armor, their defeat condition was both exposed and unprotected. What would the outcome of that be?
It was as clear as day.

Even though Core 666 tried dashing over to it, the Tentacle Slime blocked her way.
She tried attacking it over and over with her magic sword, but the liquid-filled slime wouldn’t be defeated so easily. Moreover, since the Tentacle Slime was able to use more than two tentacles simultaneously, it was more than capable of attacking while blocking the sword.
The Dummy Core was picked up by a Golem, and before Core 666 noticed—

—Broke it.

  1. thanks for the quick chapter^^
    so her true form is a magic sword…and she can upgrade herself with DP and even make herself indestructible? wow cheat much?…I guess since Rokuko can make herself grow that kinda makes sense. But with her master’s warning, it sounds like when she’s humanized she doesn’t keep the indestructible attribute. or only when she summons a doppelganger does she lose it on her body?

    1. Indestructable? All Kehma has to do is learn to manipulate mana itself to cause her to disintegrate noh? Bleck! He could call the skill “Mana Bomb” or “Soul Bomb” or something else that messes withthe spirit.

    2. I think she keeps the attribute but loses any way to use other magic and core stays vunebale as always. After all this kind of attack is all out if she still loses her true form after use Doppelganger she still will die without breaking her core.

    3. Indestructible may not be as absolute as the word implies. It might just mean [immune to physical damage]… which loses it’s cachet in settings with, you know, magic.

      1. Yeah. I’m sure there’s limitations to it. Like it probably requires magical power to sustain our something

    4. Indestructible is a trait of her sword. However when she humanizes the human body does not have that trait. The blade she makes with doppelganger gains the Indestructible trait but if her human body is killed she will die.

    1. Yep. But then again, the conditions to make it are pretty difficult to fulfill… it’s really the MC’s Language skill that’s hax, since he can use the skill to change a magic to make the wire…

      1. It’s not his language skill, from the beginning he was casting nothing but unusual effects from the same spells, it’s just because of the way he thinks as a man summoned from modern Japan into a world of fantasy.

        1. Actually, I’m pretty sure it was stated that he’s able to modify the spells because he understands the language, though… That’s why he can apply all his unusual golem designs. 😅

  2. Yay! Finally win the third fight.

    Is this the final dungeon war? Hmmm

    Thanks as always Ziru-san =w=b

  3. > Someone with an extreme sharpness was mixed into the chains, a few passing barely centimeters above Core 666’s head.
    I think you meant something when you typed someone here XD

    1. I couldn’t edit the first post T_T
      > With a bang, two heavy iron weights hit the ground. A super fine wire stretched between the weights, pulled taught.
      I think taught should have been tout? Or however you spell that :3

  4. his use of [golem maker] is odd but still something any one can do with the spell the idea and the skill to use it.
    he dose understand magic chants he even used his own spell chant for the [Maker] spell but he went back to using [golem maker] because it can make items that can move on their own ware [maker] could only reshape things as long as you are using the spell.

  5. they do say that magic spells in this world work based on the idea of what the user wants to happen with the chant as the base. like his idea of clean is a lot better then most people in that world so when he uses [cleanup] it makes things spotless but when the villagers use the same spell it may just remove some dirt because that was their idea of clean.
    sure his mite use a little more mana then the average but the level of effect is worth it.

  6. it mite be possible to by using a ton of mp to cast spells by saying what ever you want or nothing at all.
    but you will sill be limited by the image you use to cast it and this applies to the dungeon store as well in order to buy something you need to know about it and had seen it and the names and items are based on the user the price seams to be form the area or type of dungeon.

    1. well he did the wire here is a golem because he used [golem maker] to form it but he is trying to hide his use of the spell here so having it attack is not possible.
      him using it in a OP trap/weapon latter on back home sure but not here.

    2. The point to the wire is the monomolecular nature, upsizing it would simply ruin the effect since it is no longer monomolecular or thin enough to cut.

      Sometimes bigger is NOT better. Look up the Maus tank for one example of overdoing it.

      1. Nah, it could be like a near-invisible stick figure golem made of ori wire. Silent killer you can’t touch or attack! The ultimate boss monster! And he could make it now with the materials at hand too.

  7. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Ten-chan is unexpectedly a boss type
    ..i’m sorry thinking that you’re just a mid-boss.. *dogeza*

  8. O.o stupid question, was 666 cutting the wire in half? Of not shouldn’t wire wrapped around her sword(and what ever was holding it)
