Unarmed, I walked up to the enemy army.
The 10,000 demon soldiers gave me sharp, cold stares. I can't move. What should I do? In front of the enemy soldiers were captive dwarves with blades pressed against their necks.
They were the remaining citizens of Big-Gear.
Young and old, male and female, dressed in rags, their faces are tired and full of despair. There were about a thousand of them, and no matter how fast we moved, we could only save a few.
Many will be killed if I do something stupid. Even with my physical abilities, it's impossible.
In addition, five small evil dragons are looking at me.
"You're the leader of the rumored Manyu Brigade? You seem to be a random human."
A large thin man in armor approaches me and looks at me minutely.
"Who are you?"
"I'm Mappa, one of the three new Demon Generals."
He waved his arm, and chains flew up from the ground and bound me.
"Why am I losing my power...?"
"These chains are a valuable relic possessing a skill called energy reduction. Even a high-level person can't get rid of them. It's a weapon Rudra-sama was preparing to use against Roswell."
This isn't right. I'm running out of power.
How come there's a relic like this in a place like this?
"Don't worry. Your defenses are good enough to withstand something like this. Besides, we don't want you to die so easily. Those who face Rudra-sama will have to be tortured before tasting death!"
With those words, he punched me in the face. However, I did not feel any pain.
"Kukuku, you won't get away with this."
"Impossible! How have you not taken any damage! Mappa-sama's level is 1521!"
I took several hits after the first one, but still felt no pain.
"I see you're quite resilient. Well, it's time for you to feel more fear."
Mappa then uses electro shock magic.
I felt numb. The amount of magic power is directly related to magic resistance.
I have a ridiculously large amount of magic power, so even magic that would make a normal person scream gives me no more than a small tingle.
"I know you're feeling pain, come on, don't hold back, I'm just getting started."
How long do you plan to continue this? I feel an unpleasant tingle. I'm not suffering any physical damage, but the mental damage is greater.
It is very unpleasant.
"Why aren't you screaming!? Hey you, bring me a whip!"
One of the soldiers approaches Mappa, hands him a whip, and he immediately starts hitting me with it.
Why hasn't he realized yet that none of his torture techniques are working on me?
If this keeps up, I have no doubt that they will find a way to hurt me that will really make me feel pain.
But before that happens, we have to free the hostages.
"Well, I guess physical harm doesn't work on you. But luckily, I have a mental damage ability, for example..."
Pain that I hadn't felt for a long time starts coursing through my body.
No way, this is not physical pain. It's mental pain, it's an illusion. I have to be strong.
"Agh, agh, agh..."
"Not even the best trained man, and with the greatest stamina can resist this ability, it won't be long before you'll be begging me to kill you. I want you to feel pain! Feel it! Feel all that pain coursing through your body! Come on, start crying! I want to laugh at you!"
The pain makes it hard for me to think clearly. If only they would let the hostages go.....
Toph toph toph toph
The enemy soldiers around me start collapsing one by one.
What's going on?
But Mappa still doesn't notice what's happening to his allies, and keeps focusing on me.
"Get ready. I'll make you feel the most intense pain of your entire life!"
His whip violently strikes my body.
More enemy soldiers continue to collapse. After this an unusual situation continued happening for a while, the rest of the soldiers noticed and started to move.
A strange tail-like object emerges from the shadows of an enemy soldier, and instantly pierces his head. In addition, dog-like creatures emerged from other shadows one after another and mercilessly attacked the necks of the soldiers.
In the blink of an eye, the enemy army was in a state of confusion. They could no longer afford to pay attention to the slaves.
"Don't separate from the slaves! Return to your positions!
"Mappa-sama! That's it...!"
One of the soldiers points his finger in the distance. When I looked in that direction, there was something running fiercely from the horizon. It was a man in armor, and he was also accompanied by a large number of people behind him.
At the head of the mob were Kaede and Frau, both riding a rock rat.
"Master ～ We've come with reinforcements ～!"
Thank you... Thank you very much...
But, according to the meeting we had before we made this attack, there weren't going to be any reinforcements. It was then that I looked around clearly, and saw some familiar faces.
"I can't believe I'm about to save Toru-sama! I must write this in my diary!"
Luvue, who was leading Galbaran's army, attacks the enemy's left wing.
By the way, Galbaran's army was hoisting the "Kaede Love" flag. We got the biggest boost from all the reinforcements.
"Prepare to attack! Make them tremble before the joint attack of the elves and dark elves!"
Monica, who was on top of Bechjiro, gives out orders. A black and white snake carrying a dark elf pierces the enemy with its fangs.
Likewise, the elves who were riding on the snake's body use spirit magic to attack the demonic race from a distance.
Was that giant snake summoned with magic?
"Hold your position here! Our forces will actively defend in the face of this attack!"
A large shadow was cast on the ground. Next I looked up, and saw a swarm of fairies who were carrying a huge object, which landed right in front of me.
The earth shudders under its weight. With the weight of the creature.
"A B-Behemoth.... Why is it here!?"
Mappa said trembling.
Mappa shuddered at the roar. The person riding Ichiro was someone I was familiar with. Marianne, daughter of Count Roane.
"Ah, we meet again, Toru-sama. It seems I've arrived just in time."
She got off Ichiro and untied the chains that bound me.
"I'll tell you the details later."
"Sounds good to me."
I cracked my neck and turned to look at Mappa, who had managed to get to his feet.
"Now the roles are reversed."
"It's not fair to call in reinforcements!"
"Ironic that you should say that."
Mappa hit me hard with his whip. After receiving about thirty lashes, he staggered and flinched at my lack of a reaction.
"Why doesn't it hurt you?"
"Oh, I forgot to tell you, I'm level 3000."
I jabbed Mappa with my index finger, causing his head to explode.
Kaede and the others approached me after I took care of the general.
"Master! Master, master, master, master~!"
"Hey hey, stop crying."
"My Lord～! Hueeeh!"
"Don't wipe your nose on my clothes!"
My two pretty slave girls hugging me while crying made me feel relieved and my expression, that had been stiff, finally relaxed.
I didn't want a guy like that to kill me. However, I wasn't willing to abandon the hostages.
If I have a chance to help them, I have to take it. That was what I was thinking at the time.
Countless fairies clung to one of the evil mini dragons and attacked it from all directions. It's body was writhing in pain.
The four remaining groups of reinforcements continued to attack and made sure that no demons would come near us.
"Kaede, Frau, let's end this battle."
"As you command!"
I ordered Chupi, Rosuke and Kuratan to help the reinforcements.
Kaede handed me my sword, and I climbed on top of Ichiro to head for the main gate.
"Let's finish off that dragon!"
Ichiro jumps up, and a flash appears after I wave my sword. The evil dragon's body is cut in half. The evil dragon has an amazing regeneration ability, though if you block it, the fairies will easily be able to take it on.
"Let's go get the other two!"
Ichiro heads towards the direction I pointed out, and this time I took it upon myself to cut them both down.
"Good job, Ichiro. You and I make a good team. Now there are only two left."
Ichiro roars with joy, and we head towards the final two dragons. In the blink of an eye, I cut them both in half, and they lay dead on the ground.
One of the dragons was dripping some kind of mucus, and the other had its snout open. It was about to swallow me.
The inside of an evil dragon has a magnificent view in a sense. Well, it's a sight you don't get to see every day, so it's fascinating.
As Ichiro and I went inside of the dragon, I wielded my sword and started slashing all over the place to make sure it couldn't regenerate. We came out the other side of the dragon bathed in blood, chunks of flesh stuck to my clothes and its fur.
"It's time to face the Demon Lord."
"I'll follow you, Master!"
Ichiro burst through the city gates with his body and ran vigorously through the city.
