Chapter 280 - Let's Put Forth Every Effort


Naoki tutted.

Tatsuo had already defeated one Wyvern, and by this time, Lyle had either already settled things or would shortly do so. Even if it was a kind of dragon, Naoki didn't think the current Lyle would lose to a Wyvern that couldn't fly in the sky and was missing one arm.

However, it was uncertain if Naoki could achieve his quota of one Wyvern.

The appearance of the Wyvern in front of Naoki was now different from a moment ago. The two horns that had extended backwards had turned to face forwards; the scales, which should have been thin compared to other dragon types, had become thicker; its body color had become yellowish; and it was discharging a small amount of electricity.

Then, the transformed Wyvern spouted Breath. That Breath was an electrified spray. Naoki dodged to the right while covering himself with his Indestructible Cloak. His slightly grazed left foot instantly received an electric shock. That Breath was a Lightning Breath.

Yes, the Wyvern before him had evolved. To an existence one step higher, a『Blitz Wyvern』.

「I have the worst luck. Truly.」

So saying, Naoki ran around. The opponent's mobility was so high that he would easily be killed if he stopped.

Naoki's remote controlling『Operator Magic Sword』was already in its sheath. He was currently using his two-sword style to attack with the dragon flame magic sword『Fang Blaze』and the Crystal Dragon magic sword『Rainbow Horn』.

The『Operator Magic Sword』, inscription『EX』, was a magic sword that had good affinity with Naoki's Unique Skill『Magic Sword Operator』. In the first place, mastering the Operator Magic Sword『EX』that nobody could master was the reason his Unique Skill manifested, and Naoki's life had been saved countless times by that magic sword over the past three years. But without follow-up, the remote controlled magic swords alone lacked the firepower to fight an opponent covered in sturdy scales.

Be that as it may, Naoki was challenging with his proximity specialized two-sword style, but he had yet to deal a decisive blow to the Blitz Wyvern. His two-sword style (Kazane would make him call it the Handed-down Odanobunaga Style) had finally come into shape through special training with Kazane, and now that it had grown to the point where it could be used in actual battle, Naoki's strength had certainly risen one step higher. After all, the figure was Devil King Kazanerian, but it was one-on-one guidance from his older sister. Another opportunity like the last time he had received one-on-one game instruction might come again. An opportunity like that time, where he had stared at her cherries.

That could be called the reason Naoki hadn't died before the formidable enemy in front of him. But the situation was unfavorable.


Together with that roar, Tatsuyoshi-kun Dragoon, who was fighting alongside Naoki, was blown away by the Blitz Wyvern's tail attack. When it was a Wyvern some time ago, Dragoon had been able to withstand that blow, but the ability of the monster in front of them had increased more than they expected from its sudden evolution.

It was a rare thing, but the sudden evolution of a monster due to feeling a sense of crisis was a phenomenon that was sometimes seen while living as an adventurer.

Due to the abrupt consumption of internal magical power from the rapid evolution, an overwhelming hunger would dominate the monster. As a result, the monster would become not only physically more ferocious, but mentally as well. That phenomenon was a monster's last stand; the monster would perish immediately after evolution if it didn't eat the opponent it was fighting, but the result of that was now cornering Naoki.


Naoki took a step forward and swung his swords: the fire blade『Flame Zapper』from the dragon flame magic sword『Fang Blaze』, and the rainbow blade『Sevens Ray・Edge』from the Crystal Dragon magic sword『Rainbow Horn』. The two 2-meter long magical blades sliced the Blitz Wyvern.

The attack was effective. However, it wasn't a decisive blow. And the lightning claws on the Blitz Wyvern's wing-arms were troublesome.

Aiming for the instant after Naoki attacked, those claws attacked.


Unable to escape from that excessive speed, Naoki crossed his two swords in front of him to defend, but the difference in their physiques was too large. He didn't have the power to stop the blow. Therefore, he was instantly sent flying.

「Ku, UoOOO!?」

Naoki's body danced in the air. He was sent flying 3 meters, but the damage was suppressed to the minimum by his dragonscale armor. His Indestructible Cloak also dispersed the claws' added lightning damage effect. Naoki fell to the ground as he was, and although he rolled several times, he somehow managed to end up on his feet, and he readied his posture.

And he tried to prepare for the attack from the Blitz Wyvern, but when he looked forward, Tatsuyoshi-kuns Dragoon and Normal were kamikaze attacking to keep the Blitz Wyvern from approaching him.


「Yo, best friend. It looks like you're having a hard time.」

The sudden words from behind made Naoki smile with relief.

He knew without looking. His best friend was smiling like a prankster behind him.

「A hard time, huh? Only a bit.」

Lyle bitterly smiled at Naoki's disagreeable reply.

「As ever, you hate losing. Rather, that's not a Wyvern anymore, right?」

「It evolved on the way. Its attribute is Lightning. It's much sturdier, faster, and stronger than before.」

Naoki answered Lyle's question.

「So it seems.」

As he saw Normal and Dragoon being sent flying away, Lyle so replied with a cramped expression.

「It's coming!」

「Ahーdammit, let's do it!」

Naoki and Lyle started running. And the 4 on 1 battle intensified.

The Blitz Wyvern's attacks were quick and heavy. Naoki and Lyle were hit, blown away, and sent rolling by those attacks many times. If it weren't for their dragonscale armor, they surely would have died long ago.

And although they were never directly hit, the Lightning Breath was also troublesome. If it weren't for their Indestructible Cloaks, a few limbs would have become useless. And if their mobility were reduced, they would be in a quandary. It probably would have been instant death.

They were saved by their equipment. There was no doubt about it. But it wasn't only that.

Naoki's twin swords cut through the Blitz Wyvern countless times, and Lyle's dragonfang spear also pierced the Blitz Wyvern's body.

Tatsuyoshi-kuns Dragoon and Normal were also frequently sent flying as they kamikaze attacked countless times, but they also injured its legs many times, and they successfully sealed its movements.

Over and over again, they injured it, were sent flying away, crawled on the ground, and stood back up. But the endlessly continuing battle would eventually end.


Lyle's spear stabbed the right wing-arm that had attacked once again. The Blitz Wyvern was already extremely fatigued. Its claw attacks were lacking the vigor they'd had at the beginning. Therefore, Lyle simply stabbed at the critical moment, and the Blitz Wyvern screamed.

In the first place, a dragon fundamentally had three strengths: their『attack power』, due to Breath and their large body's jaw, claws, tail attacks, and so on; the『defensive power』of their dragon scales, which were the sturdiest defense even among monsters; and their『stamina』, which wouldn't run out no longer how long they fought.

However, due to evolving, the Blitz Wyvern consumed its interior magical power and relinquished its『stamina』. Its『defensive power』also didn't matter, since Naoki's group had weapons that could pass through dragon scales. And its『attack power』was also blocked by the Black Rock Dragon scales protecting Naoki and the others.

For those reasons, Naoki and his companions were still alive, and after continuing like that for a while, they finally gained a chance to win.

「Do it, Naoki!」

「『Sevens Ray』!!」

Naoki's Crystal Dragon magic sword emitted rainbow light at the Blitz Wyvern that had stopped moving.

In accordance with Kazane's order, that Crystal Dragon lineage's final, strongest Light attack was specialized for power rather than range. By limiting the range, Naoki's attack had power close to the original even with a human being's magical power. That attack was fired at the Blitz Wyvern.

The Blitz Wyvern reflexively twisted its body, but the reaction of the right wing-arm that had been pierced by Lyle was slow. As a result, its right shoulder was blown away.


The Blitz Wyvern roared.

It started rampaging at the same moment, but in the end, it was only randomly swinging its tail around as its final struggle. And Lyle didn't overlook that. With its right wing-arm torn off, Lyle's spear was already pulled out, and while avoiding its unaimed tail, he succesfully came close with a straight-line suicide attack.

(That was several times easier than trying to get through Grandfather's attack interval)

And while so cursing in his mind, he released the Barnes' spear technique『Shake』at the Blitz Wyvern's defenseless jaw. That was a vibration destruction technique for use against monsters with hard shells. But Lyle's purpose in releasing it just now wasn't destruction. It was to shake the brain of the Blitz Wyvern with the vibration and make it incapable of action. The foundation stone for the finishing blow. Then Lyle yelled.

「Finish it, Naoki!!」


Naoki shouted in response to Lyle's words and put strength into the swords in both his hands. It was the Skill『Limit Break』that was derived from Naoki's Unique Skill『Magic Sword Operator』. The Light and Flame power exceeding 100% ran through the blades of his swords, and he slashed the stupefied and defenseless Blitz Wyvern with an X-pattern.

That was the Handed-down Odanobunaga Style X-Slash (Kazane christened). Two swords were swung with all his might for his greatest attack.

The Blitz Wyvern who received that blow roared, then immediately spouted blood and collapsed. It didn't move again.

..... That was everything that Kazane heard.

「So all three are safe.」

『Yes. Right now, Tatsuo-kun has joined them in doing their best to collect materials.』

Right now, Kazane's group was inside the Vordo Ruins. And they were in a cold sweat after receiving the considerably perilous report from Tiara, who was outside.

3 Wyverns. Furthermore, since one evolved, it seemed it had been a considerable dangerous situation. However, Naoki and the others splendidly repelled it.

As a matter of fact, Tiara had also been concentrating on manipulating the summoned body in a state similar to a trance state, so she hadn't noticed the situation outside, and she had received that information as an ex post facto report. Honestly, when she heard about it, Tiara was also in a cold sweat.

Kazane was more relieved than happy about the great success of her son and younger brother, but in any case, they were safe now. Kazane asked Tiara to warn them to pay close attention to their surroundings and tell them to recover the Blitz Wyvern's dewlap.

『The dewlap?』

「Since it's a dewlap from a dragon that has the same Lightning attribute as Yumika. We might be able to make something interesting.」

Kazane meaningfully grinned at the Flame Power that was tilting its head, then turned to the front. And she apologized to the person in front of her.

「Sorry about that. There was a little business.」

『NO PROblem. WAITing like THIS is ALso LONG-AWAITED communiCAtion. I'M exTREmely deeply MOVED right now.』

So saying, it waved its arm, which made clanking sounds.

Everyone except Kazane and Yumika had gazes like they were looking at something mysterious. Jinrai wondered if it was something similar to the Tatsuyoshi-kuns, and he wasn't really wrong.

Since no matter how it was looked at, the existence in front of their eyes was a robot.
