The Classless Transferee's Skill Copy - Chapter 68
Chapter 68: Rendvell Games, Block A
At the same time that the start of the 20th Rendvell Games was announced, the participants from block A were transferred to a large battlefield.
Those of us in the waiting room and the audience could enjoy a live feed.
The battlefield was a vast swath of wilderness… a stage that allowed you to take cover behind rocks or in the water.
Dimgart and Yuugure were both in block A.
I didn’t know how strong Dimgart was, but Yuugure’s strength was the real deal…
I stared at the scene on the monitor…
Meanwhile, as Meryl and the rest were in the guest seats…
“Seems like Aruto’s still not up.”
“…I got a message from Master. It seems he’s in block C.”
“It’ll be a bit longer, then.”
They were watching from the sidelines at Wiz’s suggestion. Wiz and his knights were ready to move at any moment.
“…Is it okay if I sit beside you?”
“I don’t mi-…?!”
Meryl was called from behind, asked if it was okay to sit beside her. She was about to answer “I don’t mind,” but when she saw who asked her the question, she stopped mid-sentence from shock.
“Don’t be so scared.”
The person who asked her was Yuugure Kiriya’s partner, Anatos.
Hearing Meryl, Eim and Magius put their guards up.
Lacking critical information, Lulu was confused.
“Anatos, a goddess… and the partner of master’s fellow transferee, Yuugure Kiriya.”
Lulu couldn’t hide her shock at Eim’s explanation.
Anatos looked dissatisfied at the explanation.
“Don’t get the wrong idea. I’m not his partner; I’m merely someone who cooperates with him.”
“Why did you come here…?”
“Yuugure Kiriya is participating, so I came to watch. Don’t worry. I have no plans of causing a scene in such a populated place.”
With that, Anatos sat beside Meryl.
Confirming that, the others sat in their seats too.
“Why do you want to wipe us out, anyway?”
“…Orders. I’m not going to tell you about them, though.”
Then, seemingly captivated by the screen, Anatos did not speak a single word more…
“And the 20th Rendvell Games have begun! The participants from block A have been transferred to that wide field!”
The commentator’s voice resounded throughout the stadium.
This commentator was pretty good….
The commentator introduced the famous adventurers one by one, finally introducing Dimgart.
“That appearance and that fighting style… there’s no doubt that this person’s a killer! The assassin adventurer who uses twin blades, Dimgart Sting!”
With Dimgart’s introduction, the commentator finished his spiel.
“And with that, block A… begin!”
With block A having begun, the participants all moved out.
They had to defeat as many monsters as they could within a limited period of thirty minutes.
In less than a few minutes, the battle on the field had begun.
Swords and axes cut through opponents, skills were used, and some participants’ stamina was reduced to zero.
Me, Glenn, and the rest watched Dimgart through the monitor.
With his twin blades, he cut through and scattered his opponents.
“Ora, ora! Come at me!”
The participants that were cut down by his twin blades vanished and were returned to the starting point.
One of the opponents tried slashing at him with an axe, but he gracefully evaded the swing, showered the enemy in counterattacks, and brought the enemy’s stamina down to zero.
“D-don’t chicken out! If we take him on all at once, I’m sure we can make sport of him!”
“Alright! Let’s go!”
A large number of participants attacked Dimgart all at once.
Though he was outnumbered, he probably wouldn’t run from such a disadvantage.
…But Dimgart’s expression was relaxed, and he unleashed multiple slashes from his twin blades.
“Twin Slash: Wild Dance!”
Swinging his twin blades around, he unleashed a flurry of attacks.
I was captivated by Dimgart’s movements, just like he was dancing.
In the midst of the chaos, the dance was beautiful, and the assailants were cut down by multiple slashes, reducing their stamina to zero…
“I can still keep going!”
Dimgart lunged at his opponents, who were still disoriented by his earlier attack.
After watching Dimgart’s fight, I looked at the monitor that displayed Yuugure…
But I was wide-eyed at the sight.
…He had not moved a single step from the starting point.
Of course, he hadn’t beaten anyone else either.
What’s this guy thinking…?
A large number of participants then drew towards Yuugure.
“Oi, oi, that guy’s not moving at all!”
“Has he given up on winning?”
The two participants laughed at Yuugure, making a fool of him.
Then, Yuugure sneered at them fearlessly.
Yuugure’s uncanny smile, even as he was made a fool of, confused the participants.
“Hmm… the saying “weak dogs are all bark and no bite” really is true. Wait, no, you aren’t dogs, though. You guys are more like rats.”
At being called rats, the confused participants were awash with anger.
“Bastard… Don’t mess around!”
“I’ll beat you to a pulp!”
The enraged participants tried to move…
But at the same time, their bodies crumpled to the ground.
He must’ve used… Gravity!
“My body feels… heavy!”
The participants couldn’t comprehend what was happening to them.
Above them, a huge clump of ice appeared.
“Grovel on the soil like the rats you are!”
He used the skill Ice Rock…
Creating a huge clump of ice, he crashed it down, reducing the stamina of the participants hit by the impact to zero…
“Jeez, how boring.”
Sighing, Yuugure sat down on the spot.
He really didn’t seem like he was going to move…!
Afterward, more participants would come at them, but they only served to increase the numbers of enemies they defeated.
And as the remaining participants were mowed down…
Yuugure and Dimgart faced off against each other.
“You’re the guy who doesn’t get along with big brother Asou, aren’t you?”
“A twin-blade user… I wonder if you’ll be fun to fight.”
“Oh, on the contrary. I’ll probably end it before you even get to enjoy yourself.”
“Oh, I’m looking forward to that. Show me, then!”
Left with Yuugure’s words, Dimgart lunged at Yuugure, cutting through the air.
His twin-blade attack was blocked by the two pistols Yuugure took out.
Was the sword he used at that time not even his main weapon…?!
He then fired both pistols at close range.
But reacting to this, Dimgart parried the bullets with his twin blades.
Dimgart’s reaction speed surpassed the speed of the bullets.
That’s why he was able to hit them away!
“Hmm, it seems that you’re not like those rats after all. But that doesn’t change the fact that you’re just a mere critter!”
After twirling both his pistols around, Yuugure sneered, and blades of light came out of the barrels of both guns.
“A laser sword…?!”
A laser sword, created from pure energy… and Yuugure had made two of them.
“Now then, let’s both enjoy this, as twin-blade users!”
Yuugure approached Dimgart vigorously and attacked him with his pistols-slash-laser-swords.
Dimgart dodged the initial strike and tried to counter with his twin blades, but the laser swords and the blades collided.
No, it was more accurate to say that Dimgart’s blades were cleanly sliced in two.
His twin blades couldn’t protect against that much heat from the laser swords!
Having lost his weapons, Dimgart meant to retreat from Yuugure, but…
As Yuugure muttered this, he thrust a laser sword into Dimgart’s chest.
It was painless… but the sharp stab left him motionless.
Dimgart’s body was hoisted in the air…
Then, forcefully, Yuugure swung his sword upwards.
The other laser sword cleaved through Dimgart in half…
With that, Dimgart vanished… and it was announced that the battle was over.
Yuugure was the winner of block A, with sixty eliminations…
The participants of block A returned to the waiting room.
We ran up to Dimgart.
He was breathing deeply, frustrated.
“Heeheehee, but it was a good fight.”
Dimgart smiled at Molta’s words of encouragement.
Seeing this, Yuugure walked up to me.
Then, he whispered in my ear.
“Better pick up the pace… well, it might be impossible for you, though.”
He was totally egging me on, but I kept my cool and stared at him.
It was as though I was telling him to wait for me with my gaze…
Yuugure laughed at this and walked off…
A few minutes later…
Seemingly having prepared, the announcer spoke again.
“Now, block B will commence!”
As the directions were given out, the block B participants begun to move, Glenn and Snow also got going.
“Time to go, I guess.”
“Don’t lose, Snow!”
“Both of you… do your best!”
Glenn and Snow nodded at the same time to that and left the waiting room…
