Killing the Passing of Time Great Emperor while in his prime, even if he was beaten to a pulp afterwards, the gap between them was obvious.
The Great Demon God’s strength was above that of the Passing of Time Great Emperor.
Yang Kai knew he was very strong, but he hadn’t expected him to be so strong. He and Wu Kuang were both Great Emperors, and although Zhang Ruoxi wasn’t a Great Emperor, she was no weaker than any other Great Emperor.
In other words, the combined attack of three Great Emperors, the Great Demon God was actually able to resolve it.
The current battle was different from the one before. In the past, Yang Kai had fought over the ownership of the final piece of Pure Land, relying on his control over the World Strength. Whoever had a stronger control over this World Strrength would have an advantage, and it had nothing to do with one’s own strength. In this battle, Yang Kai had obtained the Star Boundary’s World Will, which gave him a unique advantage. He had yet to experience how terrifying Great Demon God was, but at this moment, he truly felt how powerful Great Demon God was.
On top of that, the World Force also made him feel extremely confused. Logically speaking, only those who possessed the will of the world could use this power.
How could the Great Demon God be able to use it? As for the Great Demon God’s World Force, Yang Kai felt it was somewhat unfamiliar, as if it was not the power of the Star Boundary's Universe World.
Seemingly seeing the confusion in Yang Kai’s heart, Zhang Ruoxi said, “The road of martial dao is divided into the inner and outer parts of the Universe. Inside the Universe, the Emperor Realm is the peak. Above the Emperor Realm, one can break free from the shackles of the world and escape from the world, forming a world inside their body. Right now, he is at the Open Heaven Stage, so he doesn’t need to borrow the power of the world.”
“Open Heaven Stage?” Yang Kai’s eyes widened, just like when he had jumped out of the Lower Planes Star Field and heard about the Principle Source Stage for the first time. He was both surprised and excited.
So this was the path after becoming a Great Emperor? Mo Sheng had said before that the so-called Great Emperor was just a title, not a realm. Now that he was also a Great Emperor, he naturally felt the same way as Mo Sheng.
The reason why Great Emperors were called Great Emperors was because they could manipulate the World Force and control the power of the entire world. Their fundamental nature was not beyond the realm of the Emperor Realm, but it was indeed much stronger than the average Emperor Realm. Relying on the power of the world, Great Emperors is Great Emperors. Without this world, Great Emperors would not have lived up to their name.
And as Zhang Ruoxi had said, after becoming an Emperor Realm, one needed to break free from the shackles of the world and transcend the world, forming a world inside their body…
Yang Kai couldn’t help recalling the feeling he had when he swallowed the World Source Liquid back in the Profound Heaven Temple. When the World Source Liquid burst in his stomach, it was a wondrous feeling.
Was it that kind of feeling?
He did not doubt Zhang Ruoxi’s words. Ruoxi had obtained the Heaven Punishment Inheritance, while Heaven Punishment, like Great Demon God, was an expert from the Outer Universe, so she was naturally familiar with the Martial Dao system in the Outer Universe.
No wonder the Great Demon God was able to use the World Force. Yang Kai had thought that something had gone wrong, but now it seemed that he was not using the World Force of the Star Boundary, but rather his own.
He had long since broken free from the world's shackles and formed a world inside his body.
“What realm are you at now?” Yang Kai turned his head and looked at Zhang Ruoxi curiously.
Ruoxi slowly shook her head, “Inner Universe!”
Although she had gone into seclusion and her strength had greatly increased, it had still taken her several dozen years. The inheritance she had obtained could not possibly allow her to reach the Great Demon God Realm in such a short period of time, so even if Ruoxi was as strong as a Great Emperor, she had not reached the Open Heaven Stage.
“Then we’re not in luck!” Yang Kai grinned. Although he said so, and there was a trace of fear on his face. But, he was eager to try.
Fighting across realms was something he was extremely familiar with, but now that he was fighting across realms as a Great Emperor, he suddenly felt a bit of anticipation.
Zhang Ruoxi said, “That’s hard to say. His strength has fallen greatly, and if he doesn’t return to his peak, who will live and who will die will depend on their own methods.”
When the last word fell, Yang Kai had already sent his spear towards the Great Demon God. In front of the giant spear, a black ball flashed and the aura of the world collapsing spread out.
Zhang Ruoxi also slashed down with her sword, her movements graceful and otherworldly.
However, the power of this sword strike caused Mo Sheng’s expression to change slightly. When the sword slashed down, he actually showed a look of pain, as if he had received some kind of invisible attack, causing his body to stiffen for a moment.
The Azure Dragon Spear arrived right in front of him.
Mo Sheng was unable to parry in time and this spear directly struck his shoulder. As the World Force collided, the flesh on his shoulder flew and large chunks of flesh flew out. His massive body staggered backwards as he let out a thunderous roar.
“So that’s how it is…” A loud laugh rang out as Wu Kuang flew forward, his eyes filled with fanaticism, “Open Heaven Stage? It seems this old master didn’t take the wrong path.”
As he spoke, an illusory scene suddenly appeared behind him. It was a courtyard with a beautiful scenery. There were small bridges and flowing rivers, a rock garden, and a small pond. The water was clear, and a few koi fish swam about. Beside the pond, there was a pavilion, and inside the pavilion, on a stone table, there was a chessboard. The black and white pieces were fighting each other, and next to the pavilion, there were a few peach blossom flowers, painting the scenery a beautiful picture.
However, from this illusory scenery, an extremely terrifying aura could be felt. It was the aura of an entire Universe World.
The last time he had met Wu Kuang, Yang Kai had learned that Wu Kuang was devouring various Star Fields of various sizes and had even set his sights on his Heng Luo Star Field. He had entered the garden in that courtyard before and knew about its mysteries.
This small courtyard was a fusion of countless Star Fields. The chessboard on the stone table was a vast starry sky, and the chess pieces were all cultivation stars.
The last time Yang Kai came to this courtyard, he hadn’t seen any peach blossoms, but now that he looked around, there were many things he had never seen before. It seemed that Wu Kuang had improved this courtyard quite a bit.
Yang Kai faintly felt that his Heng Luo Star Field was in danger and had definitely been swallowed by this old man.
He had previously thought Wu Kuang’s actions were too crazy and unreasonable, but now it seemed he was the pioneer of the entire Star Boundary.
For the Outer Universe, one needed to break free from the Universe World's shackles and create a new world, but what difference did Wu Kuang’s actions have from creating a new world? He could also comprehend a deeper level of the Martial Dao from it.
From this perspective, Wu Kuang’s ability to become a Great Emperor and shake the entire Star Boundary was not a fluke. His intelligence and wisdom were probably rare throughout the ages, otherwise he would not have been able to create something like the Heaven Devourer Battle Law.
In a situation where everyone was confused about the road ahead, Wu Kuang was able to rely on his own intelligence to figure out some things, causing Yang Kai to feel inferior.
Now, Yang Kai finally understood why Duan Hongchen had allowed Wu Kuang to do whatever he wanted without stopping him.
Although Bustling World Great Emperor's heart was filled with the desires of all living things, it was impossible for him to remain indifferent in the face of the allure of this deeper level of Martial Dao. Moreover, Wu Kuang’s absorption of the Star Field this time was different from what he had done before. Where he had relied on his Heaven Devourer Battle Law to destroy all life wherever he went.
This time, although he had used the Ancestral Domain as the core to devour and integrate countless Star Fields, it would not damage the foundation of these Star Fields, but instead bring unexpected benefits to the Lower Planes.
The scene of the garden behind him was the best proof of this. The scene of the garden had become a universe world. Although it couldn’t be compared to a universe world like the Star Boundary and Demon Territory, it was still much better than the Lower Planes Star Field. As long as he had this universe world, Wu Kuang would have the strength of a Great Emperor, and without the Star Boundary, his strength wouldn’t be damaged in the slightest.
Amidst his laughter, Wu Kuang raised his hand and several koi fish that were playing with the water in the pond suddenly flew out. They shook their heads and swayed their tails, transforming into ferocious giant beasts that opened their bloody mouths and viciously bit towards the Great Demon God.
“This old man is really patient!” Yang Kai secretly clenched his teeth as he watched. Wu Kuang had fought against the Great Demon God alone and looked like he could die at any moment, but now it seemed like he was hiding his strength.
Only now did he reveal his ferocious appearance.
The giant monsters all exuded a terrifying World Force, and in the blink of an eye, they arrived in front of the Great Demon God.
The Great Demon God swung his fist and one of the monsters exploded, but the remaining few bit into different parts of his body and tore off pieces of flesh. The few monsters didn’t stop and immediately turned around to flee, transforming into koi fish again and falling into the pond.
An intoxicated look immediately appeared on Wu Kuang’s face, as if he had just eaten some delicious food, causing his aura to rise slightly.
Even though they were on the same side, Yang Kai still felt a chill run down his spine. Taking advantage of the Great Demon God’s state of mind, the Azure Dragon Spear transformed into countless spear shadows and shot towards the Great Demon God.
At the same time, Zhang Ruoxi’s Sword poured down like a waterfall, leaving terrifying wounds on the Great Demon God’s body.
“Even an ant dares to hurt me!” The Great Demon God was enraged, and with a wave of his hand, the spear shadows and sword that filled the sky shattered. With a muffled groan, Yang Kai and Zhang Ruoxi were sent flying. At the same time, Wu Kuang, who had been quietly approaching the Great Demon God, was also struck by this palm strike, causing him to scream miserably as he fell to the ground, creating a huge pit.
Yang Kai vomited blood while Zhang Ruoxi also vomited blood…
Of the three Great Emperors, Wu Kuang was the only one who had the upper hand.
The gap between their cultivation realms was like a great chasm. Yang Kai’s mouth was filled with bitterness as he raised his spear and paused, locking onto the Great Demon God.
“He’s coming!” Zhang Ruoxi suddenly sent a sound transmission to Yang Kai, “Stop him for a moment!”
Yang Kai didn’t know who she was referring to, but when he saw Ruoxi rush forward again, he could only grit his teeth and follow.
With two loud booms, the Great Demon God’s massive figure began to exude a boundless evil aura. Yang Kai and Zhang Ruoxi’s all out attack only lasted for a breath’s time before they felt a massive force coming towards them, forcing them to retreat, shattering the void wherever it passed.
At this moment, a terrifying aura descended from the sky…
TO BE CONTINUNED...
