Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Xiao Mu was an eighth-tier Renhuang and a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor.
Ye Futian was a seventh-tier Renhuang. He controlled the sacred remains of Shenjia the Great Emperor. He was also the inheritor of the teachings of Great Emperor Ziwei and Shenyin the Great.
One was a top-level monstrous figure of the Devil World who was approaching the pinnacle. Another was the top monstrous figure of the Original Realm and the most prominent figure in the realm at the moment. The two of them suddenly confronted each other, standing across each other in the sky. Prior to this, there had been no premonition of a fight. With just an exchange of glances, they seemed to understand the other party’s intention.
Be it Xiao Mu or the current Ye Futian, both of them had terrifying cultivation. The auras that the two of them released kept expanding, enveloping the vast space. All around the Heavenly Mandate City, countless people looked up into the sky. Their hearts were trembling intensely.
Someone had actually come to challenge Ye Futian?
For the people of the Heavenly Mandate Realm, Ye Futian was already a legendary figure. He was the object of the faith of countless people, especially the cultivators from the younger generation. They worshipped him like a deity, and he was the goal that countless people pursued. He had pulled off too many miracles.
The black-robed demonic cultivator was also extremely frightening. Who was he to dare challenge the current Ye Futian?
“I cultivated in the Devil World for more than 80 years. I joined Devil Imperial Palace when I was 30 and was later accepted by the Devil Emperor as a direct disciple. Now, I am an eighth-tier demonic emperor. In terms of cultivation Plane, I hold a slight advantage over you. I will hold back a little,” Xiao Mu said as he looked at the figure standing across from him. His voice was overbearing and imposing. It contained an intense self-confidence. He claimed that he would hold back a little in his fight against Ye Futian and that he did not want to hold an advantage in terms of cultivation.
Ye Futian’s white robe danced in the sky. His expression was still calm. He looked at the other party and said, “There is no need to do so. I have cultivated for almost the same amount of time as you. Although my cultivation is at the seventh-tier Renhuang Plane, I have yet to encounter an equal match at the same tier. So, you don’t have to hold back.”
Even when faced with a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor who was at a higher level than him, Ye Futian was still confident that he could put up a good fight against the other party. His confidence stirred up the emotions of countless cultivators in the Heavenly Mandate City.
The demonic cultivator was actually a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor from the Devil World!
Existences at his level were all cultivators who stood at the pinnacle of the cultivation world.
Even so, Ye Futian, who had a lower Plane of cultivation, was still confident that he could put up a fight against Xiao Mu.
Perhaps Xiao Mu would be the strongest opponent that Ye Futian had faced so far.
Mei Ting, who was drinking wine in a tavern in the distance, looked in their direction too. He was also very interested in the battle. Ye Futian was a legendary figure that Yu Sheng willingly followed. Mei Ting wanted to see for himself how strong Ye Futian currently was.
Xiao Mu would most likely be a huge challenge for Ye Futian.
As one of the Eight Great Devil Generals in the Devil World, Mei Ting was well-aware of the ability of the direct disciples of the Devil Emperor. Those monstrous figures in the Outer Realms could not hold a candle to them. Being a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor meant that Xiao Mu received personal instruction from the Devil Emperor. Xiao Mu’s demonic art was taught by the Devil Emperor.
The top figures from the Heavenly Mandate Academy had serious expressions too. They also realized how powerful Ye Futian’s opponent was. Xiao Mu was someone extraordinary, even for them. It was rare for them to encounter a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor. The status of Xiao Mu was similar to that of Spear Emperor Du You, who came to the Original Realm more than 20 years ago with Princess Donghuang. Spear Emperor Du You was a direct disciple of Donghuang the Great.
The Devil Emperor, who dwelled far in the Devil World, was a mighty legendary figure. How strong would his disciple be?
The auras emanating from Ye Futian and Xiao Mu grew more and more frightening. The demonic might roared and churned. At the same time, intense rumbling of the Great Path could be heard from Ye Futian’s body. His body turned into the Way and became the Divine Body of the Great Path. It was domineering. In the previous battles, the Renhuangs at the same tier as Ye Futian could not withstand a blow from his flesh. One could imagine how menacing the divine body, which Ye Futian inherited from Shenjia the Great Emperor, was.
Seemingly sensing the terror of Ye Futian’s flesh, Xiao Mu’s body was also metamorphosing. His demonic form was instantly covered with terrifying lightning. Black and purple divine lights gathered and merged with his body. One could sense the power of his flesh even better with their will. His flesh was fully charged with overbearing, destructive power.
The gazes of the cultivators from the Song Imperial City narrowed when they saw this scene. The cultivators from the Divine Prefecture were rather unfamiliar with the Devil Emperor. However, those long-standing top forces from the Divine Prefecture heard rumors about the Devil Emperor before.
An elder said, “Rumor has it that the Devil Emperor is a one-in-a-million genius in the Devil World. He has created many demonic arts which are unprecedented and unsurpassable. He is a bonafide legend. The demonic arts which he created are all top demonic techniques in the world. They are the pinnacle of demonic techniques. Furthermore, it is said that the Devil Emperor suits his teaching in accordance with his students’ aptitude. Based on the cultivation of each demonic cultivator, he teaches them different demonic arts so that the demonic arts are compatible with the learners.”
The elder looked at the sky and continued, “Rumor has it that all the disciples of the current Devil Emperor have inherited very formidable power. Since this Xiao Mu is one of his direct disciples, he must have inherited some form of demonic art from the Devil Emperor. I’m curious to find out how strong he is.”
The facial expressions of many top figures from the Heavenly Mandate Academy turned solemn when they heard the elder’s words. They were not sure how strong the Devil Emperor was. However, the Devil Emperor was the one who ended the chaos in the Devil World. He was the legendary figure who united and ruled over the entire Devil World. His name was on par with that of Donghuang the Great. He was one of the very few cultivators who stood at the peak.
How strong would his direct disciple be?
Even though they had lots of confidence in Ye Futian, they were still uncertain about whether or not he could surpass the difference between their Planes and win the fight against this direct disciple of the Devil Emperor.
The top figures would not have worried about Ye Futian if his opponent was not a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor, but instead a direct disciple of any of the top forces from the Divine Prefecture. After all, the direct disciples of the top forces paled into insignificance compared with the direct disciples of the Devil Emperor.
Xiao Mu’s gaze was locked on Ye Futian. Both of them could sense how powerful the flesh of their opponent was. One was a demonic form, while the other was a divine body surrounded by endless runes and divine light.
“Let’s me experience how powerful the body of the Great Path inherited from Shenjia the Great Emperor is,” Xiao Mu said loudly. His voice was deep and resonant. It caused the space to shake. He took a step forward. He didn’t unleash any demonic arts; instead, he intended to clash into Ye Futian head-on with his flesh.
His Super Demonic Form was also an inheritance from the Devil Emperor. He refined it with demonic lightning to create his own demonic form of the Great Path. He had successfully forged the Super Destructive Heavenly Demon Form.
Each and every disciple of the Devil Emperor had to cultivate the Super Demonic Form. Then, they had to merge it with their own flesh to create their own demonic form. The demonic cultivators were very particular about the cultivation of their bodies. Without strong flesh, it was hard for them to unleash the might of the demonic arts.
As a direct disciple of the Devil Emperor, Xiao Mu had cultivated his body to its utmost limit. His body was domineering.
When Xiao Mu stepped forward, the entire sky shook and thundered. The demonic might churned and exerted great pressure on everyone else. Ye Futian’s flesh was almost invincible. Since he had forged the divine body, he had not met anyone who could battle him with their flesh alone.
However, now that he was facing Xiao Mu, even he felt a sense of pressure. It made him recall the initial sensation when he first met Yu Sheng.
Yu Sheng’s body was very strong. Aside from his demonic art cultivation, it was also due to his innate abilities. Having cultivated in the Devil World, Yu Sheng’s body must have been trained to an even more terrifying level. Ye Futian wondered how Yu Sheng’s cultivation was progressing now.
However, Ye Futian was not worried about Yu Sheng’s cultivation at all. That fellow would certainly not fall behind.
His figure pounced forward, and he also stepped out. Both of them did not unleash law power attacks. Instead, they walked straight towards each other. Even so, before they even clashed, an extremely ferocious storm swept out. Intense rumbling of the Great Path filled the skies. The rumbling caused many cultivators of the Heavenly Mandate Academy down below to have goosebumps as they watched the terrifying scene in the sky above. Was this the strength of the flesh that could be achieved by a cultivator?
Even the giant-level figures were astonished. Renhuang Chen stood out to protect the Heavenly Mandate Academy, preventing it from being damaged by the shockwaves from the battle in the sky.
In the sky above, demonic light and divine light swept out. The two of them walked straight towards each other. Then, both of them punched out towards their opponent at the same time. There was no fancy display of technique. Both of them unleashed terrifying attacks with just their bodies straight towards their opponent.
Bang! The sky shook violently. An unparalleled storm swept out around them. With both of them at the center, a frightening cyclone was formed. Their figures were not sent flying. Both of them stood there, straight and tall.
Ye Futian felt a menacing demonic light surge into his body. The demonic light contained unparalleled destructive power. It wanted to tear apart his flesh. However, the Divine Light of the Great Path circulated within him. His flesh was almost perfect and would not be destroyed so easily.
Xiao Mu similarly felt a powerful shockwave surge up his arm and into his demonic form. However, his demonic form had also been honed and trained. In extraordinary locations in the Devil World, it had undergone the baptism of countless strikes of demonic lightning. It was an immortal and indestructible body. Even ninth-tier Renhuangs would have a hard time trying to destroy him.
Yet, Xiao Mu was surprised. Ye Futian, who was clashing with him, had not been knocked back. He was taking Xiao Mu head-on. It was clear that Ye Futian’s body was indeed top tier.
To be able to encounter such an opponent, Xiao Mu was feeling somewhat excited. Menacing demonic light flowed, and absolute power gathered in his arm. Once again, he punched out. Faced with his overbearing attack, an ordinary eighth-tier demonic emperor would be annihilated with a mere punch. He would not need to attack twice!
