Kill The Hero – Chapter 198 – Payback (2)
It was the Hellhound who announced the start of the battle.
Without hesitation, the Hellhound, with it’s long, black body, leapt up and rushed towards the Twin Headed Cyclops.
The Twin Headed Cyclops swung its gigantic fists at the Hellhound, but the Hellhound immediately dodged by rolling twice on the ground before jumping back to its feet and baring its teeth once again.
The Twin Headed Cyclops’ two heads faced the Hellhound at the same time and let out roars of anger.
Then they used their curses to affect the Hellhound.
The Hellhound felt its body become heavier, and the focused light within its eyes seemed to waver a bit.
But that was all.
Although it had become heavier, the Hellhound was a monster that was not inferior to the Cyclops at all.
In fact, when it came to pure physical ability, the Hellhound could be considered superior to the Cyclops.
This meant that even with the curse, the physical difference between them was minimal.
And it didn’t matter if it was confused.
After all, the only one facing the Twin Headed Cyclops at that moment was the Hellhound.
So naturally, the Hellhound only had to attack the only enemy it could see.
The battle that began between these two monsters was incredibly fierce and brutal.
Every time they collided, the sound produced was reminiscent of a loud drum, and the sound of the two moving around and knocking against the ground was not lacking when compared to thunder.
It was a scene that made it seem like the very world was shaking.
Moreover, the battle between the two didn’t seem like it would end easily.
That was how formidable the Hellhound’s power was.
[Magic Power is being consumed quickly.]
However, the current condition of Kim Woo-jin’s magic power was not great.
Of course, this was to be expected.
The Twin Headed Cyclops was originally not a monster that players from 4 Floor dungeons would be able to hunt.
It would be strange if he could fight for an infinite amount of time against such a monster.
‘Ten minutes at most.’
Kim Woo-jin knew that he could only maintain such a fierce battle with this monster for no more than ten minutes.
‘And it would be hard to make use of the Skeleton Soldiers or Knights.’
Naturally, there was no place for his skeleton army in such a fight.
‘Rather, if they were to be confused, there’s a high chance that they would become a hindrance instead.’
It was also risky to add more troops because of the Twin Headed Cyclops’ ability to confuse its opponents.
In such a scenario, the skeletons were more likely to attack each other.
‘Above all, weak attacks wouldn’t do anything.’
Most importantly, the Twin Headed Cyclops’ skin was so thick that even unique grade items would not work.
Kim Woo-jin was more aware of this fact than anyone else.
In other words, to be able to step into this battle, certain conditions needed to be met.
One, they needed to be immune to the curses that the Twin Headed Cyclops made use of.
Two, they needed a powerful enough item which could get through the Twin Headed Cyclops’ thick skin, as well as the ability to use it properly.
Three, they must have flawless technique to attack the Twin Headed Cyclops at the best possible times.
‘It’s impossible even for Lee Jin-ah.’
Even Lee Jin-ah could not meet all of these conditions.
There was only someone who could.
‘I’m the only one.’
Kim Woo-jin was the only person who met all the requirements.
The problem was that currently, Kim Woo-jin could not let go of Merlin’s Staff.
[Merlin’s Staff infuses magic power into you.]
Because as soon as he did so, his magic power would plummet, and the Hellhound would immediately get trampled by the Twin Headed Cyclops till even its bones could not be seen.
It was a problem that couldn’t be solved unless there were two Kim Woo-jins.
[Alter Ego skill has been activated.]
However, it was an easy problem for the current Kim Woo-jin to solve.
“Is this enough?”
Kim Woo-jin was able to create a clone of himself using the skill of the Seventh Tail of the Nine Tailed Fox.
“Its abilities are lacking.”
Of course, the abilities of the clone Kim Woo-jin created by the Alter Ego skill were lacking when compared to the original.
To be precise, the Alter Ego skill didn’t copy the user’s stats, instead, it divided them.
If Kim Woo-jin had a total of 100 health, stamina and magic power, then it would be divided randomly.
Moreover, the stats that were divided were only the basic ones and the ones gained from achievements.
As the stats of items could not be divided or changed, the stats of items could only be factored in if the items were equipped separately.
“Because my alter ego doesn’t have Van Gogh’s bracelet.”
This meant that the clone would not be able to benefit from the stats and advantages of Kim Woo-jin’s items.
“But it’s still stronger than I was then.”
However, it was still on a completely different level when compared to himself who had challenged the Forest of Giants in the past.
“The items are completely different from then too.”
Most importantly, the items that Kim Woo-jin’s alter ego was currently holding in his hands were much more powerful than any item Kim Woo-jin had in the past.
[Ganjang resonates with Makya.]
[The Resonance will last 10 minutes.]
[Attack power increased by 50%.]
[Cutting power increased by 50%.]
[All stats increased by 50%.]
[Movement speed increased by 50%]
Gangjang and Makya.
Kim Woo-jin looked at the two swords that were vibrating in the same frequency and smiled.
“Dig out his eyes first.”
“After that, I’ll peel his skin.”
When Kim Woo-jin entered the battlefield, the first to notice it was the Cyclops.
The left head targeted him as soon as it realised that there was another challenger in the fight.
[You have been exposed to the Cyclops’ curse.]
The curse which made it impossible to distinguish between friend or foe immediately attacked the alter ego.
[Lancelot’s Ring negates Confusion.]
However, in the face of Lancelot’s ring, the confusion disappeared before it could truly reveal its power.
In that time, the alter ego quickly shortened the distance to the Cyclops and immediately cut its left achilles tendon.
The thick skin, which was so tough that even the Hellhound’s teeth were only able to leave shallow scratches, split apart like paper in front of the resonating Ganjang sword.
As soon as its achilles tendon was cut, the Twin Headed Cyclops let out a pained roar and stagger.
However, it didn’t fall.
Like a deep-rooted, ancient tree, it remained standing.
The Hellhound wasn’t going to let go of this chance.
It leapt forward once more.
Under the Hellhound’s assault, it was naturally impossible for the Twin Headed Cyclops to chase after the alter ego.
Once again, the alter ego was able to do what it wanted, and it immediately took advantage of that fact.
This time, it was the right achilles that was cut.
Then it went back to the left foot and cut the achilles tendon in the same place it had been cut before.
Then he heard the sound that reminded him of a piece of rebar breaking.
It was the sound of the achilles tendon, which had been severely damaged, finally snapping.
It was also a prelude to the fall of the Twin Headed Cyclops, which could no longer remain standing.
The Twin Headed Cyclops fell backwards with a loud roar.
And as if it had been waiting for this moment, the Hellhound pounced onto the Twin Headed Cyclops’ torso.
However, at that moment, the Hellhound turned to look at Kim Woo-jin’s alter ego.
In its eyes, there was no sign that it was looking at its owner.
This was due to Confusion.
Immediately, the Hellhound bared its teeth at Kim Woo-jin, expressing its intentions.
But in the next instant, the Hellhounds body began melting.
Its flesh disappeared in no time and its bones crumbled not long after.
It was at that moment that Kim Woo-jin had canceled the summoning of the Hellhound.
It was also the moment when the Cyclops had a chance of escaping its predicament.
But the monster wasn’t able to see this chance.
When the Hellhound’s summoned was ended, the Makya and Ganjang pierced the Twin Headed Cyclop’s eyes.
[The Cyclops’ curses have disappeared.]
It was at that moment that the Twin Headed Cyclops, a monster brimming with terrifying power had become both lame and blind, and could only rely on its large body and thick skin.
It was also the moment when the overwhelming hunter had become pitiful prey.
A Skeleton Knight appeared before such prey.
And Lee Jin-ah also made his appearance.
Those who appeared didn’t seem like hunters.
Instead, they were more like butchers who were ready to slaughter livestock.
