However, Tang Wulin seated in the mecha’s control cabin cracked into a faint smile at this exact moment. A smile that no one had ever imagined.
“The next hit of mine is going to be your hour of doom.” Bubble King was not alarmed in the slightest as he faced the Overlord Dragon that had already charged to his front. He launched the soul propeller on the mecha’s back and arose abruptly into the air to make an ingenious dodge in the air. The swiftness of his movement and the speed of his transformation were too plenty for the eyes to feast on.
Could a standard mecha truly make that movement? There was no doubt that the movement had already exceeded a standard mecha’s criterion. One would see that there seemed to be the addition of some bubble-colored adhesives on every joint of this mecha. It was very apparent that these adhesives enhanced the standard mecha’s load capacity.
The bubbles released from Bubble King’s body became even bigger now. Meanwhile, Tang Wulin was already in an absolutely inferior position. Even if he still had a way to resist the attacks, he could only get beaten up passively.
However, just as the large bubble was about to be released, Bubble King’s mecha came to a stop in the air all of a sudden. The pause happened unexpectedly. Such that the audiences were stunned for a moment.
Then, the bubbles that surrounded his body suddenly began to turn red.
‘What was happening there? Why did the bubbles turn red so soon? I thought the bubble would explode when it turned red?’ Almost all the audiences had already figured out that different colors of bubbles signified different functions. Yet, they did not understand why would Bubble King ignite his bubbles at this moment?
The audiences had yet to react to the situation when a violent booming noise had already exploded in the air. The enlarged bubble exploded!
‘What? What was happening? Was he trying to set fire to himself?’
The audiences were all confused. While the Bubble King’s mecha had managed to unleash its protective shield, it was still exploding into a ball of fire within the powerful explosion.
Then an incomparably thick and huge tail shimmering in a duskgold color was flung over in the air. The fireball was blasted away in an instant and produced a chain of huge explosions in the air!
“The competition has ended. Number Sixty-six, victory!”
He had won!
Who would have thought that the competition would end in such a manner when the other side had the upper hand. It was simply unbelievable.
Despite having every advantage, it appeared as if…the Bubble King had killed himself. He had taken his own life and died by his own hand.
Tang Wulin’s mecha slowly stood up from the ground. The enormous Overlord Dragon stood by his side and appeared to be overflowing with dominance. Yet other than himself no one was willing to give the credit of this competition’s victory to him.
‘Right enough, huh?’
Tang Wulin’s lip cracked into a faint smile as he sat cross-legged in the control cabin. ‘As expected, there was a flaw…’
Just as Bubble King was about to launch his final all-rounded attack, Tang Wulin thought of a possibility.
Bubble King’s bubble had no fear of water nor fire and it was impressive serving in an attack or defense. However, he was still trying to conceal something. The problem that he attempted to conceal was certainly fatal to himself. Thus, Tang Wulin thought that it was possible that there was a type of ability that those bubbles that appeared to be all rounded could not isolate. It was precisely spiritual power.
Yes, spiritual power it was. On every occasion when Bubble King unleashed his bubbles, he would be shimmering with different radiances. It should be related to the infusion of his different soul skills. In other words, it was possible that all his foundation bubbles were the same. The different soul skills that were infused into the bubbles allowed the bubbles to have different types of abilities. If Tang Wulin’s prediction was right, then every time Bubble King was engaged in the process of infusing his soul skill into the bubbles, it was also the time when it was most possible for the bubbles to be in trouble. Bubble King was concealing the process of him infusing his soul skill in them.
There was also another possibility. The bubbles were not that stable on their own, so he would need to exercise intense control in order to allow the bubbles to achieve their true battle purpose. In this instance, Tang Wulin first thought of the problem regarding with spiritual power. In other words, Bubble King’s bubble could very possibly be disrupted while infusing skills in them.
No everyone was equipped with ability related to spiritual power and there were also very few spiritual attribute soul masters. Yet one should not forget that the Tang Sect had a technique known as Purple Demon Eyes, which was an extremely good method to cultivate one’s spirit and also incidentally functioned as spiritual assault. The more powerful one’s spiritual power was, the better the effect of Purple Demon Eyes.
Tang Wulin’s spiritual power had already approached the realm of Spirit Domain, so there was no doubt about how powerful his spiritual power was. There were not many Title Douluo-rank powerhouses who were worthy to be his opponent. In this case, one could only imagine how powerful was his Purple Demon Eyes.
Hence, he made an attempt just as the opponent was unleashing his soul skill.
As it turned out he was right. When those bubbles were out of control, or in other words when the Bubble King temporarily lost control, the explosion happened. Bubble King’s act was equivalent to setting fire to himself.
However, Tang Wulin still admired the Bubble King very much. Even though Bubble King lost to him, he was not piloting a standard mecha in course of his real life. As long as he was capable of providing very powerful ability in spiritual defense to his own mecha, he would almost make himself invincible.
No wonder he chose to become a mecha master and could very possibly be a mecha master who was not even a battle armor master. This was the mysterious part of his background.
No matter how one describes him, he would always be the absolute peak-level person in the mecha’s world.
Winning this round at least did not feel as depressing as the time when he was fighting against Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi. At least he understood how he won, but Tang Wulin did not feel much excited in his heart, rather he felt more admiration towards the Bubble King.
This year’s competition allowed him to bear witness to the abilities of many powerhouses. He had also seen that the world was huge and there was nothing inconceivable. He had witnessed so many strange and peculiar martial souls, soul skills and also all sorts of odd battle methods. He could describe this experience as an eye-opener. As for the elevation of his actual combat experience, it was simply something that no other cultivation method in his past managed to measure up to.
For that, Tang Wulin was ever grateful for Blood One from the depth of his heart. He was thankful for that Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi for it was him who made him took on this path.
On the other hand, Tang Wulin was Blood Nine in Blood God Army’s Blood God Battalion. He could already call himself Blood Nine with dignity now.
He had managed to enter both finals of soul master battle and mecha battle. Moreover, Tang Wulin had also figured out that he had most probably already revealed his identity.
Any audience who had paid closer attention to him would immediately realize that his abilities were mostly overlapping with the Golden Dragon King after he used Golden Dragon Roar.
He managed to enter the finals of both great competitions simultaneously by depending on his own effort. It could be said that he was already the true victor of this year’s Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge right now.
As for the audience’s gasp of surprise and confused discussions after the competition, Tang Wulin did not pay too much attention to that. He left Star Dou Cabin and the first thing he did was to give himself a decent hot shower.
Frankly, even though it was a battle in Star Dou Battle Network at the time, the difficult fight with Bubble King still left Tang Wulin feeling sticky all over his body with an unspeakable discomfort.
He felt much better after a shower.
The opponents from semifinals were already so difficult to deal with, then how about the finals?
It had been a very long time since Tang Wulin had ever anticipated something so badly. On the other hand, he was truly filled with anticipation towards the Federal Star Dou Battle Challenge Network right now!
He was already at a point where he could no longer think about whether he could become the final champion. The experience of fighting with such powerful opponents was even more pleasurable than becoming the champion for this was a rite of passage for his elevation in the future.
He did not meditate as he won today’s battle through his wisdom mostly. In reality, he still had a lot of emergency plans he had yet to use and only used a small portion of his soul skill. He still had Goldsong which he had yet to unleash as well.
Thus, he would not necessarily lose the competition even if he had not found the Bubble King’s flaw. However, it was still a very joyous thing for him to be able to defeat the opponent with his wit!
He exited his room but he did not go over to the resting area. There were truly too many people in the resting area now, especially when almost everyone from the army knew him. He could no longer find the calm and peace he sought for in the cafe.
He opened the door to his forging workshop as he walked into the room.
It had been some time since his last visit here as he had been busy engaging in matters related to the finals recently. He saw the familiar forging table. Even though metals were icy cold, his heart was burning hot with passion.
He still had many tasks to do after the competition this time had ended. Firstly, he would prepare all the metals required for his three-word battle armor. He would at least forge the basic shape. Also, he would forge himself a mecha using the best materials available. A mecha that was most suited to himself.
He had cultivated profound interest and attachment in mechas after engaging in mecha battle and through Ling Wuyue’s guidance. The identity of a battle armor master and mecha master was supposed to be overlapped! What a waste that a standard mecha could not allow that at all for the space inside a standard mecha was not even sufficient for him to be clad in battle armor at the same time.
