Supreme Emperor of Swords - Chapter 967 - Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad
Chapter 967 Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad
Ding Hao frowned slightly.
In the next moment, some gloating eyes fell on Ding Hao.
The golden light flashed and Ding Hao disappeared.
“As expected, it’s another golden fighting ring.”
Ding Hao looked around. He was actually on a huge palm. Behind him was a huge golden statue of a Buddha, surrounded by clouds. The height of the statue was unknown. The Buddha looked compassionate. One hand of the Buddha was standing in front of its chest, and the other was open. Ding Hao was standing right in the palm.
Faint Sanskrit chants sounded in the surrounding void.
Ding Hao noticed that there were divine chains of order made of ancient scriptures wrapping around the entire golden palm of the Buddha. It was impossible to leave the Buddha’s palm.
A golden light flashed.
His opponent had arrived.
Ding Hao looked at it and found that it was not a human-shaped creature, but a huge three-legged golden toad. Its flesh bulged all over its body, and it was more than 30 meters tall. Wisps of strange dark green venom gas lingered around it. Even the air was corroded and made sizzling sounds. Its pupils were like Blood Pools and fiery pupil radiance flashed.
“It is from the Demon Clan?” Ding Hao’s first reaction was that it was a creature from the Demon Clan, which had revealed its original appearance.
But he soon realized that it was not a demon.
The dark green venom gas was not Demon Aura. Rather, it was a very pure natural element. In other words, it was more like beast power.
“It is from the Beast Clan? No.”
The Beast Clan was almost as intelligent as humans. The more powerful they were, the more they looked like humans. However, this three-legged toad looked incredibly ferocious from head to toe. It didn’t look like a human at all.
“Could it be… a behemoth from the north?”
Ding Hao had heard from the old guide with messy hair that the Beast Clan in the north of the Land of Divine Grace not only referred to the intelligent Beast Clan but also some ancient behemoths. They were descendants of the Primeval Ferocious Beasts that lived in the Remote Period and the archean times. They were born with the inherited beast power. Their wisdom was not very high, but they had terrifying destructive power and lethality. They were mortal enemies with the Beastman Clan.
It was the first time that Ding Hao had encountered a behemoth.
In the Gold Divine Hall, a master from the Beastman Clan exclaimed at the sight of the three-legged toad. “It’s that demon king. Why is it here? This human master is doomed. The Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad’s combat strength is in the God Realm, and its bloodline power is not affected by the suppressive power between heaven and earth…”
The expressions of the other masters from the Beastman Clan all changed.
The Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad was a well-known demon king as well as a butcher among the behemoths in the north. It had killed countless masters of the Beastman Clan. The Divine Camp of the Beastman Clan had sent masters to kill this demon many times, but it either killed those masters or escaped. It was a big worry for the Beastman Clan.
They didn’t expect that this vile creature would come here as well.
After hearing the discussions of the beastmen, the expressions of the creatures from the other clans changed as well.
Such a powerful demon could also be teleported to the golden fighting ring. Did this mean that as long as the so-called Battle of the Chosen continued, they would meet it sooner or later? In that way, wouldn’t they be doomed to die?
“It’s uncertain. Let’s see first.” Little Ape King shook his head.
“Your Highness, what do you mean?” The beastman who had exclaimed first was stunned. “Is it possible that this human can defeat the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad?”
“It’s not just possible.” Little Ape King said seriously, “He will definitely win. The only suspense is how long he can kill the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad.”
“How is this possible?” The beastman was stupefied, and dozens of other beastmen were also shocked.
Ding Hao had been keeping a low profile in the Gold Divine Hall, and he had not joined any small groups. He seemed to be the kind of poor man who had neither popularity nor shrewdness. He was a complete weakling. They had thought that Ding Hao was just cannon fodder, but unexpectedly…
The beastmen took Little Ape King as a god and knew that what he said could not be wrong.
However, they still found it hard to believe.
At the same time…
Yu Miejue’s eyes moved away from Little Ape King and fell on the crystal screen. There was a faint smile at the corners of her mouth, but it disappeared in a flash. However, she looked astonishingly beautiful in the split second. Several human masters not far away accidentally saw this. Their mouths went dry and their minds went blank.
“Meat, young and tender, I like it…” The flame-like eyes of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad were fixed on Ding Hao, and a strange mental fluctuation emitted a ferocious aura.
Ding Hao took a look at the behemoth. Then his eyes moved away from it and began to observe his surroundings.
Comparatively speaking, he was more interested in the golden fighting ring.
There was a kind of horrible power as if it were the aura of the rules of creation. Ding Hao’s powerful Mind Essential intuition told him that this power had surpassed the peak of the God Realm, but he was not sure whether it was the power of the so-called Immortal or not.
“The Battle of the Chosen begins. The victor will live, and the loser will die. If both of you lost with injury, you will both die! If there is still no winner after 30 minutes, you will both die!”
The familiar ancient cold voice sounded as if it were passing judgment. The voice sounded very cruel.
“I see.” Ding Hao nodded. In the previous two golden fighting rings, the two pairs of masters had been fighting against their opponents at all costs because of the sentence uttered by the voice. The rules were too cruel. It meant that no matter what happened, someone had to die to end the battle.
The Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad was the first to attack. It opened its huge mouth.
A large patch of green venom fell from the sky.
Ding Hao dodged in a flash.
The place where he was previously standing had turned into a pond of green venom.
A pungent stench and ferocious aura pervaded the air. Even a master at the peak of the Martial Sage Realm would be poisoned to death in an instant if he inhaled even a little bit of such poisonous gas.
Rumble! Rumble! Rumble!
Patches of venom kept falling from the sky, almost enveloping the entire golden fighting ring like a rainstorm. People would feel despair since they couldn’t dodge the attack.
But Ding Hao kept changing his position in the storm. He could successfully dodge the venom attack every time. In the blink of an eye, he went close to the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad.
The Sword Intent of the Beginning of Spring and that of Rain Water broke out in an instant.
There was the east wind, the fish tails, the ice cubes, the swan geese, the otters, the raindrops…
All kinds of illusions of the Sword Intents appeared.
In an instant, the Sword Light whistled, and the Sword Qi flickered, enveloping the giant Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad. Clusters of green blood mist exploded. The surface of the behemoth’s body looked as if it had been struck by lightning and countless wounds cracked open. The Sword Intents broke out, and the terrible force wildly caused damages in the body of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad…
“Owie… Croak…” The Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad roared in pain.
In the next moment, Ding Hao turned into a flash of lightning. He performed the Great Body Extension Swordsmanship to the extreme, shooting directly toward the wound on the abdomen of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad. The next moment, it burst out from the back of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The giant sword Ding Hao had turned into was extremely sharp. Its speed was so fast that it was almost invisible to the naked eye. It kept piercing into the body of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad. Within the time of a few dozen breaths, the behemoth’s body was riddled with holes, like a pile of rotten meat!
Angry roars could not change anything, and the aura of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad weakened rapidly.
In fact, a behemoth like it, which had inherited the power of the ferocious beasts of the Remote Period and ancient times, should not be defeated so easily. Even if its body was smashed, there was a possibility for it to restore its body. But what Ding Hao used was the power of the Sword Intents. As long as a trace of mental power was attached to its body, it could not remove such power…
The giant body of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad fell to the ground.
Its eyes, which looked like Blood Pools, were not focused. Full of unwillingness and anger, it stared at Ding Hao. Its wisdom was not very high. It could not understand why it had lost to a human who was as small as an ant in its eyes.
The giant sword Ding Hao had turned into shook off the green liquid on the blade in the void. Then he changed back into the human shape.
“Is it dead?” Ding Hao looked down.
Likely, the power of the behemoth had also been weakened by the suppressive power between heaven and earth. Although it was not as weakened as the creatures of other clans, it was most definitely not at its peak. Otherwise, he would not have been able to win so easily.
But Ding Hao was satisfied with the power of the Sword Intents.
He was now sure that the lethality of the Sword Intents to God Realm Masters would not decrease at all.
That was the real reason why Ding Hao dared to challenge God Realm Masters.
“The venom of this toad behemoth is indeed powerful…” Ding Hao’s eyes fell on the ground which was the Buddha’s palm. Even the ground, which was strengthened by some ancient Buddhist scriptures, was corroded and had some depressions. He was very shocked seeing this.
With a stir of his mind, he took out a Space Crystal Bottle. He collected a large amount of green venom and sealed it in the bottle.
“Eh? That’s…” Ding Hao saw a cluster of dim green light flickering in the abdomen of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad. He attracted it with his palm, and a green crystal ball with a diameter of half a meter slowly rose from the scattered meat.
“It looks like a treasure.” Ding Hao observed it and found that the green crystal was neither smelly nor corrosive. Instead, it had faint fragrance, which made people feel refreshed.
It was said that the more poisonous something was, the more possible it had a kind of antidote in its body. Ding Hao guessed that the round-shaped green crystal should be something like the inner elixir of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad, which could detoxify many poisons in the world and had unparalleled medicinal properties. It could be regarded as a kind of divine medicine and a supreme treasure.
He happily put away the inner elixir.
At the last moment before he left the fighting ring, Ding Hao took out the two eyeballs of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad. The eyeballs contained the poisonous fire with extreme Yang property. They and the poisonous green liquid with extreme Yin property happened to complement and restrain each other. They were also the supreme treasures in the body of the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad and were extremely attractive to inscriptionists and elixir refiners.
A golden light flickered.
Ding Hao returned to the Gold Divine Hall.
People’s eyes fell on him.
The masters of all clans looked at Ding Hao with awe and horror. Many people did not expect that this seemingly young and weak human would be so powerful that he had almost tortured and killed the Bloody-eyed Demonic Toad, whose combat strength was in the Semi God Realm. Some people gloating before all avoided looking directly at Ding Hao at this time.
