Chapter 1071: Powerful Bubble King
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Bluesilver Impaling Array hit nothing. Bubble King, who was rising into the skies, flashed with light. The huge bubble detached from his body and went straight for Tang Wulin. It resembled a colossal soul ammunition. Tang Wulin also clearly saw that many more bubbles were forming within that large bubble. These bubbles formed layers upon layers within the huge bubble which then merged with the outermost bubble. The huge bubble itself started to redden.
‘Is he really using that as his soul ammunition?’
Tang Wulin drew a deep breath. He raised his mecha’s left arm and a beam of golden light shone. His Golden Dragon Spear appeared magnificently in his mechas grasp. Then, he threw it without hesitation.
He felt that it was better to pop a bubble after all.
Golden Dragon Spear shot out with lightning speed. It resembled a blade of golden lighting in the skies. As it went along its course, only a series of explosion sounds could be heard from that large bubble.
Tang Wulin saw layers upon consecutive layers of explosive force bursting out in the skies. The shockwave built up through the layers and expanded outward. They exploded and almost covered half of the competition grounds. Initially, the epicenter of the explosion was quite far away from him, but with this great explosion, it still lifted his mecha off its feet. It was imaginable how terrifying it would have been if this thing had hit him.
The aftershock from this great explosion had barely faded when Bubble King’s mecha had appeared before Tang Wulin without even making a sound. It had appeared in the most mind-boggling of way.
When Tang Wulin noticed it, what he saw was a mecha covered in a huge bubble crashing towards the ground and escaping the explosion’s shockwave from beneath it.
Then, after the large bubble hit the ground, it had rebounded with a powerful elasticity. This rebounding force even increased his speed twofold. From the impact with the ground, he had created a deflection and appeared before Tang Wulin. The colossal bubble enlarged itself directly in an attempt to cover Tang Wulin.
‘Wow! a bubble can be used like that?’
Tang Wulin’s gaze focused. He stabbed out with the spear in his hands. Bluesilver Emperor vines covered his spear. At the same time, an extremely powerful Spear’s Consciousness burst forth. He did not dodge it, nor was he afraid of being covered by the bubble. He stabbed forward with an indomitable will.
The two opponents instantly collided with each other. The spear stabbed into the bubble and the bubble was dented. The two opponents collided with each other and the bubble covered Tang Wulin’s mecha without question. However, it did not succeed completely. It was pushed away by Bluesilver Emperor vines. The tip of Tang Wulin’s spear burst forth with spear’s gleam which pressed forward forcibly as it attempted to break the bubble.
Another huge bubble was released from Bubble King’s body. It merged with the previous bubble from the inside. The two mechas were separated by these two layers of bubbles. They were literally right in front of each other.
The spear in his hands shook. Tang Wulin’s mecha suddenly let out a furious, deafening howl. A massive Golden Dragon’s head charged out from his mecha’s chest. The intense soundwave even created layers of ripples on the large bubble’s surface.
Bubble King’s mecha clearly paused momentarily. Its spear’s gleam burst forth and it finally broke through the two layers of bubbles smoothly. It was pointed directly at Bubble King’s pilot cockpit.
At the same time, while the Golden Dragon’s head was letting out the furious roar, Tang Wulin’s spear buzzed. This standard spear seemed somewhat unable to endure the immense energy that erupted suddenly. It quickly shattered, but the spear’s gleam that had formed inside the spear remained. It brought with it a shaking golden spear’s gleam that instantly reached the Bubble King’s chest.
“Puh!” Bubble King’s mecha was penetrated by that terrifying impaling force and was directly ruptured.
However, a peculiar scene appeared as well. The ruptured portion suddenly turned pink. Then, it intensely wriggled. The thrusters behind Bubble King’s mecha suddenly shone brightly. This made it charge forward suddenly and ram into Tang Wulin’s mecha.
The intense collision created a powerful vibration. The protective barrier on the surface of Tang Wulin’s mecha was suddenly shattered by the impact. That was not all, layers of bubbles started covering it as well. The bubbles swiftly turned red. Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor had no time to push it away before a series of explosions occurred.
In the time it took to create a spark, the upper hand of the battle kept shifting from one side to the other. For some time, the spectators were at a loss as to who was at an advantage.
Tang Wulin urged his soul power on. The Soul Core and Dragon Core within his body swirled at full speed. All the soul power released was used to defend himself. Densely packed Bluesilver Emperor vines covered his mecha and endured the explosions which came at him over and over again.
The spectators were unsure who had the upper hand. There was no reason that he would not know. After the previous exchange of blows, the one who was at a disadvantage was him.
When the spear’s gleam penetrated Bubble King’s mecha, he had felt something amiss. At that moment, he had not only used Golden Dragon Roar, he even used the Golden Dragon Blast. However, when it penetrated his opponent’s mecha, he felt as if he had stabbed into an extremely sticky and thick substance. It was like sticky rubber, but it seemed like a bubble with a solid core. Even the greater vibration force released by Golden Dragon Blast was quickly dissipated within that sticky and thick sensation. Then, Bubble King started to launch his counterattack on him.
Martial soul avatar! Tang Wulin believed that this was definitely an effect that could have only been unleashed by his opponent’s martial soul avatar. His opponent had blocked his attack with his martial soul avatar and then launched an all-out counterattack. His opponent tackled him and sent him reeling before following up with more bubbles.
‘This guy is truly annoying!’
Ever since he entered the mecha battles competition, this was Tang Wulin’s first time thinking that the situation was difficult. Not only was his opponent’s martial soul balanced in defense and offense, but it could also control his opponent’s movements. It was even immune to physical attacks. It was practically insanely powerful! His bubble was like rubber. The more powerful the attack, the stronger the rebound. It was a martial soul that had no weakness to exploit!
When he thought about this, Tang Wulin suddenly remembered something Wu Zhangkong had told him before.
In this world, there were never any martial souls that had no weakness. All martial souls had their own perks and their own shortcomings. The more powerful the martial soul, the general case was that the weakness would be more fatal.
Wu Zhangkong’s words were proven true time and time again throughout Tang Wulin’s cultivation process. This included what he said about Tang Wulin as well.
Of course, his Bluesilver Grass could not be regarded as a powerful martial soul, there were too many problems to it. After it evolved into Bluesilver Emperor, it was still lacking in offensive strength. How about his Golden Dragon King? It looked like an extremely powerful bloodline power on its own. However, behind that power, eighteen seals that could endanger his life at any moment were hidden.
Similarly, the doughty Dragon King Long Yue back then had made Tang Wulin and the others feel almost powerless to stop him. However, he also had his own problem. The danger of the Mountain Dragon King martial soul were unstable emotions. This had resulted in him possibly becoming a human weapon at any time. Hence, he dared not utilize his own ability as well.
So, what was the Bubble King’s weakness? It was impossible for him to be that perfect.
One of the most important parts of the training that the Demon Island gave Tang Wulin was that he became able to keep his cool regardless of the circumstances. This was because being flustered would only make things worse. Facing it calmly was the only way to deal with things better. Only then was it possible to turn the defeat into a victory.
It was precisely with such an attitude that Tang Wulin was able to think calmly and look for his opponent’s flaw. Although, he was expending large amounts of soul power under the relentless bombardment from the explosions and had his mecha damaged to a certain degree.
After firing a series of bubble bombs, Bubble King’s mecha also paused slightly. It dropped to the ground as if it was waiting for something.
In truth, after Bubble King took the blow from Tang Wulin, it did not leave him unharmed.
Although he had escaped death by using his martial soul avatar, the Golden Dragon Blast contained within his Spears Consciousness still shook him greatly and he was injured quite badly. He had still underestimated Tang Wulin. He would never have thought that his double defenses would still be broken through by Tang Wulin. In truth, his second bubble was not the same as his first bubble. Its defensive strength was the strongest among his soul skills. However, it was still unable to block Tang Wulin’s attack under these circumstances. What this signified was obvious.
Fortunately, he had turned his defeat into a victory by using his martial soul avatar. However, he could not be sure if his opponent was still alive after being rained down with his bubble bombs.
If this was any other situation, he would not have even bothered to take a second look after a standard mecha had taken blows from his bubble bombs. One single bubble bomb was sufficient to shatter a standard mecha. It would not be unthinkable for the mecha to be blasted to fine powder, even. However, his opponent was someone who was able to proceed to the semifinals. He was definitely not a simple person. He could feel from the previous stab that another extremely domineering force filled the Spear’s Consciousness. If it were not for his quick reflexes, this competition would have been over quickly. How could such an opponent not raise an alarm within him?
