Chapter 319: Vol4 Ch44: Endpoint of data – Revelation
TN: The Revelation mentioned here is actually referring to the Book of Revelation, which might be better understood as Apocalypse.
Xu Fu stood in mid-air, the intense storm wind constantly buffeted him, but only managed to cause his blood aura to flutter slightly as if it was a breeze.
As the Wind Disaster acted, the other Six Disasters also didn’t stand still. The Flame Disaster took a sip from his gourd of liquor, landed on a nearby street, then unleashed a fire dragon through his breath towards an entire street full of Smiths.
The intense heat caused everything to erupt into flames, melting even the uppermost layer of the stone road, which turned incandescent almost like magma. The Smiths who stood on the street were directly burnt to ash, then turned into data.
As the Flood Disaster wasn’t standing near an ocean or river, he couldn’t manipulate a large body of water, but he wasn’t completely unfit for combat either. He began extracting moisture from the surrounding ground, plant matter, and even living bodies, forming blades of water that rapidly slashed the approaching Smiths in half. The Flood Disaster then controlled this water to take flight.
The Drought Disaster’s power manifested in the form of drawing moisture away, but it was in fact the ability to converge water and freeze it, releasing a large amount of heat in the process. According to Xu Fu’s calculations, if the Drought Disaster’s ability was able to advance one step further, they would evolve into the ability to call upon hail.
In the past, the Drought Disaster was only able to absorb the water into their body, but now, thanks to the Flood Disaster’s aid, a large amount of moisture was drawn away from the land, which now converged and formed ice particles in mid-air. The land no longer contained any water, so it started to crack, the plants and grasses in the area instantly losing their vitality, manifesting as a scene of drought in no time at all.
Standing on top of the stifled and parched land, the Smiths heard a loud noise from the sky as a large number of ice chunks rained down from above, causing mass eradication of everything within their range.
As the hail and storm ravaged the capital city, the Emperor, who was also the War Disaster, stood in the palace with a gloomy gaze. Even though his soul had been taken over by Xu Fu’s split soul, he was still the ruler of this land; he still harbored great emotions towards this nation that he raised with his own two hands. However, he would now have no choice but to personally destroy this nation.
The Emperor confiscated all weapons in the land, forging them all into standardized weapons for his army. After converting into an undead, thanks to his unrivalled talents, he quickly awoke his True Spirit and gained the ability to hide his weapons. Any weapon that was marked by him would fall under his control.
He couldn’t completely trust Xu Fu, so he sent his subordinates to contact the Mi clan, but still ended up one move behind Xu Fu and was converted into his incarnation.
A large number of bronze weapons floated behind him: daggers, axes, lances, halberds, darts, acupuncture needles, maces, bells, crossbows and arrows, sabers, and swords, an ocean of uncountable weapons shot out wave by wave, destroying everything in their path.
As for the Monster Disaster, after his body writhed for a while, he transformed into a giant monster with nine heads of different appearances.
The Wind Disaster and Monster Disaster were a pair of twin brothers, who were now about 700 years old. When the Central tribe fell from grace and broke apart, numerous new countries were formed, but their overuse of the Wondrous items created numerous unnatural monsters, all of which caused quite a bit of destruction.
The Wind Disaster and Monster Disaster were both victims of this, the reason they converted into undeads in the first place was to hunt down those monsters in revenge. In reality, the fact that such unusual monsters had practically gone extinct was mostly thanks to them.
The Monster Disaster hated these monsters the most, so he used to frequently consume these unnatural monsters alive after he became an undead, which ended up with him awakening an ability related to the unnatural monsters.
His body had a total of nine empty slots, with each monster he consumed taking up one slot within his body, also granting him that corresponding monster’s form and powers.
While the Six Disasters began acting to hunt down the Smith clones, the Ultra Space-Time Squad hid behind a collapsed prison, with Constantine creating a barrier for them to hide inside.
“This kind of power, is it really something possible of a living being?” watching the ridiculous powers unfolding outside, Mi Ze opened his eyes and mouth wide. It should be known that while the undeads were previously very destructive, the most they had were a bit of strength and unique abilities; while these Six Disasters incarnations were individually manifesting a natural disaster on their own, which had gone beyond human imagination.
“He wasn’t this powerful the previous time, these six incarnations only had a few unique abilities” Major Cage said in disbelief as he watched the six figures outside.
“It was most likely knowledge” The Doctor sighed deeply: “You said that we were restrained by him to extract our memories, and my greatest treasure is none other the knowledge that I have accumulated over countless years. That by itself is a terrifying force”
“He already had the power accumulated by the undeads for a thousand years, he simply couldn’t fully exert them the previous time. But after extracting our memories, he could now exert that power more perfectly”
“This kind of enemy is extremely tough” watching Xu Fu standing in mid-air, The Doctor deeply sighed again.
“No, you’re underestimating Smith too much. As an entity capable of destroying an entire world, he isn’t going to be defeated so easily” Rip Z refuted. As an entity who had fused with Smith, he was the most authoritative voice regarding this matter: “Furthermore, don’t we still have other trump cards?”
The Doctor nodded and lightly touched his pocket. Just as he said earlier, knowledge was the most terrifying force of all, this force might not all belong to them, but while they had the knowledge, they could always create more terrifying weapons to arm themselves with.
Under the Six Disasters’ destruction, even without Xu Fu moving a finger, the army of Smith had basically died off. Part of this was due to them attacking without regard for friend or foe, killing off the majority of civilians and stripping Smith of bodies for him to create copies with.
A blood-colored tentacle made of fog grabbed the final Smith. The current Smith had grown physically twice stronger and three times as durable compared to when he first clashed against Xu Fu, but that was still far from enough.
“Do you have any other techniques? If not, I’ll be disappointed when I kill you” Xu Fu declared as he looked down on Smith. This individual was powerful, but nowhere near enough for the current Xu Fu, as he had only just begun to warm up.
Smith struggled within the bloody fog for a while before being crushed to death, turning into data.
Xu Fu tried to keep this data but found that they existed in two different dimensions, as Xu Fu wasn’t able to even touch them.
When the final blue streak of data disappeared, a giant monster slowly appeared from thin air, as a large amount of data began circulating, a gigantic 12-faced metallic polyhedron1 had manifested.
“The endpoint of data – Revelation” watching the 12-faced metallic polyhedron, Rip Z felt a profound sense of despair. Revelation, the manifestation produced through erroneous simulation, the ultimate mutation of the data virus called Smith. It contained the power of all Smiths, as well as the ability to cause the world to fall into eternal darkness.
Some of the faces of the gigantic 12-faced polyhedron began to move, with some of them reaching outwards using DNA-shaped chains, while the uppermost face of the polyhedron produced a golden platform, from which an obscure figure appeared.
From Revelation, solid masses of endless darkness began to spread throughout the entire world, causing everyone to be plunged into the dark, almost like they were hovering in the middle of the night sky.
