Isekai Monster Breeder
Chapter 151 – VS The Demon Lord (I)
“I guess I’m not surprised. Well that’s why, because, come on, I’ve inherited some of Iblis’s skills, right?”
I’ve been wondering about it for a long time.
How come an ordinary high school student like me ended up with the cheat blessing “Absolute Control”?
Absolute control | Grade S | Without details.
(A blessing given to those who are qualified to rule all.)
According to Aphrodite, the only people who can be given blessings are limited to historical figures and heroes.
If Iblis is right, and in my past life I was the Demon Lord Iblis, then that would explain in one way or another the cheat blessing that has been given to me.
“Wait. If I am actually the Demon Lord, then who the hell are you ?!”
This is the only thing that really doesn’t make sense.
If the man in front of me is the Demon Lord, then there are two Demon Lords in this world.
“Good question. My name is Hyunckel. I was the second in command of the former Demon Lord’s army, and I am the one who took over Iblis’s body.”
Oh, now I see.
So that’s what it was about…!
‘Yes. This is just a hunch on my part, but… the person inside that castle must be an infidel who is usurping the name of the Demon Lord. ‘
Carolina’s words had stuck in my head all this time until now.
How could Carolina determine that the Demon Lord inside the Castle was fake?
The answer to that question is now clear: Carolina knew that I was the Demon Lord.
The man in front of me has the body of the Demon Lord, but his spirit is nothing more than that of an impostor.
“It is a strange thing. After meeting you, I now have the body and soul of the Demon Lord right here at my fingertips! At last, my long-awaited wish has been fulfilled.”
Smiling broadly, Hyunckel’s gaze drifted to the pedestal next to the throne.
Demon Lord’s Treasure Sword | Grade A | Details unknown.
(A treasure sword that can only be wielded by those who are vessels of the Demon Lord.)
There was a sword stuck in the base.
It was not a gaudily decorated sword, but rather it was strangely solemn.
“It seems that that treasure sword is the key to unlocking true power as a Demon Lord. I’ve had a lot of trouble with it. After all, I inherited the body of the Demon Lord Iblis, but only half. You and I have to work together to draw this sword.”
Of course, I have no intention of cooperating with Hyunckel’s plan.
“Hyunckel, I’m going to correct you. The reason you cannot draw your sword is not because you are only half.”
I walked towards the pedestal while listening to the sound of my footsteps.
The memory of a previous life in me tells me so.
Originally, the sword stuck to that pedestal was my property.
That is why I, now that I am aware of the fact that in a previous life, I was the “Demon Lord”, I will probably be able to remove the sword from the pedestal.
“In the first place, you were not qualified to be a Demon Lord from the beginning.”
Hahaha. I knew it.
The treasure sword stuck to the pedestal was like it was waiting for me to pick it up, I was able to pull it out easily.
“Heh. I’m surprised. I did not expect you to release the Demon Lord Treasure Sword in this manner so assertively.”
Although he was trying to be calm, there was a slight hint of irritation in Hyunckel’s words.
“I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to ask you to give me that sword. I’m sure you won’t need it.”
“…What if I say no?”
“I will take it by force. I think it’s time for you to be careful what you say, for your own good.”
Suddenly a chill runs down my spine.
Is this the pressure that the Demon Lord unleashes?
If it had been the me of right after being summoned to this other world, I wouldn’t have been able to even get up because my body would be shaking.
But all the encounters I have had to date have strengthened my heart with determination.
“Thank you for coming here. It does not matter which one. You have the right to choose what you want.”
Hyunckel gave me two options.
Either I gave him the sword silently, or he would kill me and take the sword from me after the fight.
I have no intention of going up to that ring that he has prepared for me.
No matter how desperate the gap in strength is, you win if you can find a way to turn the tables in your favor.
This is how I’ve been fighting until today, and I’m not going to stop.
“Wait. What are you doing?!”
Fufufu. It’s too late!
After all, you don’t use it, do you?
I throw the Demon Lord Treasure Sword in my hand into the mysterious space of the throne room.
The Demon Lord Treasure Sword, which left my fingertips, disappeared like a shining star in the mysterious space.
“You…. How dare you…! How dare you! How dare you! How dare you!”
I don’t know where anything that fell into this space would go.
But given Hyunckel’s anger, it was easy to imagine how difficult it would be to get it back.
“…You have done the unforgivable. You won’t get out of here in one piece.”
Demon | Grade S | NV 1153
Fire Magic (Super), Wind Magic (Super), Water Magic (Super), Dark Magic (Super), Light Magic (Super).
Hyunckel’s body swelled with rage.
What finally emerged was a demonic figure with two horns sprouting from its head.
It was so gigantic that its total length could have reached 10 meters.
So this is the form I had in my previous life.
It is a very typical “Final Boss” design.
