Chapter 35: Don't Anger the Fatty

Translator: Chaos Editor: Geoffrey

As the imperial soldiers were anxiously regrouping due to the sudden explosions, someone

suddenly shouted amidst the chaos, ’’Enemy attack! Enemy attack!’’ Before he was able to finish

what he was saying, the shots from the energy cannons and the missiles from Battle Mechas

had arrived at this group of people. These Imperial soldiers who were not under the protection

of Battle Mechas were just like rice crop being reaped they began falling onto the ground from

the fierce cannon barrage as their limbs and their fresh blood flew in all directions as the

shockwaves from the explosions reached an extremely high level, causing the place to rain

blood.

Within seconds of losing their spirit, the group of people began running in all directions. Facing

such assault of cannon barrages, the human body was truly weak. The scene of a bloodbath had

caused many people to decide to escape immediately, savoring every single second they had in

running away from the hell that was reaping everyone's lives. There had even been a few who

were so shocked that they stood rooted on the spot in a daze, looking around at the others who

fled in all directions. They were not even aware of the bloody rain that fell on their faces. In this

group, there had been a soldier younger than the age of 20 standing there as thin blood flowed

down from his young and tender face that had an expression full of terror; he stood there

trembling. Amongst those escaping soldiers, there had been some who called his name, yet this

young soldier stood there in a daze as if he did not recognize any single one of them. As the one

who was calling his name went over to pull him away, a missile fell directly on this young

soldier. After a resounding boom, what was left behind within the smoke was just flesh and

blood falling like hail.

The several Imperial Battle Mechas amidst the group had turned into the primary target of the

Federation's firepower. Since the start of the battle, not a minute had passed and three

[Cerberus] and two [divine Mecha 22s] had already been destroyed from the concentrated fire

from the energy cannons. What was left was only a [Cerberus] and three [divine Mecha 22s],

which went to look for cover from the barrage of missiles. They could only depend on the

mecha's manoeuvrability to dodge the incoming missiles, thus it was only a matter of time

before they were destroyed.

Tian Xing Jian brought with him five disguised [Devil Tigers]. They had almost stopped for a

moment to watch the show. At the moment when Fatty was about to relax, his sixth sense sent

him a warning. Looking over with rapt attention, he saw two human-style Battle Mechas

emitting signs of danger walking out slowly amongst the wildfire that rushed to the sky.

This was the first time Tian Xing Jian saw such an Imperial Battle Mecha within his enriching

experiences of 22 escapes. There were two continuous tracks underneath its two thick

mechanical legs. It was eight meters tall and had a very thick external armor, which put on

display its strong defensive capabilities. Beside its head, there were two enormous energy

cannons that were malevolently striking, and above its broad shoulders were several small

hole. It had two extraordinary long mechanical arms placed in line with its mechanical legs.

This Battle Mecha seemed to be just like a big gorilla. There was even a three meters long alloy-

made blade wielded in its mechanical hand. The glowing blue light on this blade showed that it

was an expensive ion-blade.

The alloy-made ion-blade was a weapon that was the embodiment of the idea of sharpness. As

long as the ion-blade was able to make contact with the enemy, unless the Battle Mecha used

an extremely hard alloy for its thick outer armor along with an additional layer of thick armor,

then the ion-blade would easily be able to cut them apart just like a beancurd. Energy shields

were completely useless against such energy weapons.

Tian Xing Jian activated the scanning ability of his [Logic], trying his best to do something to

increase the success rate of their operation. He had already seen signs of the Myth Legion

symbol on those mecha. They were the Fiend Gods of the Myth Legion. Cold sweat started

forming on his forehead. If he could not analyze the structure of these two Battle Mechas in the

shortest period of time, the consequences would be dire. He would not have thought that such

monsters would appear from within the base. Tian Xing Jian regretted not placing more bombs

within to get rid of these two Battle Mechas at the same time. He knew what these two Battle

Mechas represented, as Rashid had sent some information regarding the Myth Legion to him.

Within the information, there was a small passage introducing him to this sort of mecha:

[King Kong], the human model single-operated Battle Mecha was exclusively used by the Myth

Legion. Its model and weight were classified to be between that of a medium-sized Battle

Mecha and a heavy-sized Battle Mecha. The newest model was manufactured using an

extraordinary hard alloy, and it had tremendous speed, powerful strength, and tyrannical

offensive ability. No other Federation Battle Mecha was as tyrannical as this mecha in terms of

close-combat abilities, and its long-range attacks were comparable to heavy-sized Battle

Mechas.

The information related to this Battle Mecha was so simple, yet just these few words of

information were collated from the sacrifice of dozens of warrior-class pioneers and two [Fury

Fires]. Even though these Battle Mechas were not all destroyed by the [King Kong], during that

battle, the [King Kong] was one of the prime reasons for their defeat. A Myth Legion company

that did not have all of its manpower could completely thrash a full battalion of Federation

special forces as long as they had a [King Kong] with them.

[King Kong] was actually not indestructible. The reason why it was frightening had been solely

due to the operators controlling it they were handpicked out of the Myth Legion. Only those

with the best Battle Mecha controlling techniques and the most battle experience would be

chosen. A section that was riding on solely [Devil Tiger] had been enough to shock Tian Xing

Jian through their controlling techniques. If that's the case, the degree of the operators

controlling the [King Kong] would be truly unimaginable.

[Devil Tiger] was a beast and [King Kong] was a demon.

Tian Xing Jian truly wanted to shout out ’’retreat’’, yet if they lost their current advantage and

waited until the enemies regrouped before using the ruined base to proceed in their defense,

then Tian Xing Jian and the rest would be doomed. This group of escapees, who would be

escaping from this location at 10 am, would not be able to smoothly board the transport ships.

Furthermore, even if they escaped now, the question of whether they could escape from those

two [King Kongs] remained unknown. Retreating in an unsafe situation would lead to them

dying one by one from the pursuing soldiers. During his time in the special forces training,

committing such a mistake that would lead to dire consequences was something that was

taught again and again.

’’I can't escape even if I want to. I can't defeat them even if I try. What should I do now?’’ Fatty

wanted to hug someone and cry out his heart. He put in so much effort, and at the point of

success, these two gorillas appeared.

Right now, the only team that he could make use of was [Logic] and the five [Devil Tigers] that

were still in stealth mode and had yet to enter battle.

’’Damn! Let fate decide whether I live or die. With the electromagnetic attack by the [Antenna],

the sneak attacks by the [Devil Tigers], and the firepower of [Fury Fire], this father will take on

one of them and hold on for a few minutes. By then, we should be able to get rid of the other!

Let's take this gamble!’’ His heart gave himself a boost of confidence as the gangster

temperament of Tian Xing Jian arose once he was frightened to its limit; Maybe it was because

he had not seen the power of [King Kong] with his own eyes or maybe the desire he had towards

success was huge since they were so close to it, but his mentality started splitting into two

again. In his mouth, Fatty was just chanting about how he would be risking everything, and

that life or death would be determined by the heavens. He immediately crafted a new battle

plan.

The remaining [Cerberus] had been destroyed by the sudden concentrated fire. Thus, other than

the [King Kongs], the only other possible factor that could change the outcome of the battle was

the other three [divine mecha 22s], which had to be exterminated before anything else. One was

damaged and one lost its movement capability, leaving only one left struggling amidst the

fierce barrage of cannon fire.

Myth Legion's [King Kongs], No. 079 and No. 051, moved calmly at a relaxed pace. One of the

reasons why they were not anxious was solely because these soldiers from the Myth Legion did

not care much about their own lives and neither did they care about the lives of their comrades

from the Myth Legion. As for the second reason, it was because the distance between them and

the Federation Battle Mechas was quite far. They could not prematurely reveal the advantage of

speed the [King Kong] had. Only when they were closer would they proceed with a sudden

assault this was a tactic which had been well-tested in previous battles.

What made the [King Kongs] resentful was that those cunning Federation Battle Mechas had

known what they had planned to do. They suddenly moved backwards as a group, seemingly

showing that they were some rabbits being preyed on. While they were retreating, they were

still firing at them; however, their aim while moving had been so poor that only when the

targets the [King Kongs] became ten times bigger would they be able to suppress them.

Right before the two [King Kongs] ended their act and were about to charge forward, a brokenlooking

Federation [Beast Mk.III] Battle Mecha had seemingly taken the wrong path and came

out from the forest on the right. Behind it was five Myth Legion [Devil Tigers] chasing after

him, causing the two [King Kongs] to be excited for a moment. Hey, such a broken-looking

Battle Mecha actually dropped from the air into the enemy rear lines! It seemed that the

Federation was a spent force.

Maybe it was the sight of the two [King Kongs] on the other side that caused the escaping,

broken-looking Battle Mecha's movement to become sluggish as it hesitated, but behind him,

the five [Devil Tigers] were increasing their speed as they got closer to him. While panicking,

this Battle Mecha decided to take a detour around the [King Kongs] outside the region 50 meters

away from it.

[King Kong] No. 079 did not hesitate. With a few steps, it immediately went to obstruct the path

of that broken-looking Battle Mecha. It seemed as if the operator was in despair as he

maniacally moved its mechanical arms as it howled in agony before jumping onto the [King

Kong] as if he was a small child using the tortoise fist, causing [King Kong] No. 079 to laugh

until his stomach started to cramp.

With the ion-blade in hand, No. 079 was prepared to use the Mountain Cleaving Slash on the

sugarcane-like broken Battle Mecha to cut it into two; this was the [King Kong]'s favourite way

of killing people. That destructive and violent force that could seemingly consume everything

could make anyone afraid.

But, when the broken-looking Battle Mecha was about 10 meters away from the [King Kong], it

finally fell down from the assault of the quickly pursuing [Devil Tigers]. They were just like

hungry wolves as they clawed on the back of this [Beast Mk.III], gouging out a few holes. The

electronic circuit within the mecha had become distorted with sparks, and fires began to form;

it was truly a pitiful sight. After twitching a few times, it became totally paralyzed on the floor,

unmoving.

Seeing his plaything get stolen away, [King Kong] No. 079 felt resentful as he cursed in his

heart, ’’This group of wolf cubs!’’ However, since their communication had been interfered with,

he could not greet these [Devil Tigers]. Thinking about it, it did not matter much. After all, there

were still a group of Federation Battle Mechas firing at them as if they did not know that

doomsday had already arrived.

The two [King Kongs] signalled for the [Devil Tigers] to join them as they prepared to use the

specialty of Myth Legion speed to charge into the formation of Federation Battle Mechas.

With the addition of the five [Devil Tigers], those two [King Kongs] had confidence to ensure

that not a single Federation Battle Mecha would be able to escape.

The Federation Battle Mechas, who thought they had reached a safe distance, formed

themselves in a defensive formation as their firepower became more accurate and

concentrated. With a wave of hands, [King Kong] No. 051 released the signal for them to start

their assault. His [King Kong] started speeding up as the two continuous tracks underneath the

thick mechanical legs turned at full speed, a speed that did not match its external appearances.

This was the newest fusion done by the Empire, which merged the continuous tracks into the

human model Battle Mecha's mechanical legs; it was stable and fast. Within the blink of an eye,

[King Kong] No. 051 had covered a distance of more than 100 meters. In his eyes, the group of

Federation Battle Mechas had panicked so much that the threat of firepower on him could be

ignored completely.

What No. 051 did not notice was that this group of Federation Battle Mechas had enacted their

plan and simultaneously transferred all the firepower onto No. 079, causing it to not move for a

few seconds.

And those following the No. 051, whom he subconsciously thought were all the Myth Legion

Battle Mechas, were only the five [Devil Tigers].

[King Kong] No. 079 was extremely angry. That group of Federation house flies had

unexpectedly intercepted his movement. Even the strongest of defenses could not withstand

this concentrated firepower for too long. Looking at the five [Devil Tigers] and No. 051 rushing

forward, he had to instead evade the incoming cannon fire.

The god of faking death, Tian Xing Jian, suddenly moved. Even though the scan done by his

Battle Mecha was only 85% completed, this was the only chance he had. The Federation Battle

Mecha's firepower could only give him this very short window of opportunity. Lying down on

the ground like a dead dog, the broken-looking Battle Mecha that was full of sparks stealthily

came from 10 meters southeast of [King Kong] and suddenly charged forward with the

Assistance Propulsion System. Just like a missile that flew close to the ground, the slightly

more than ten meters distance from the Battle Mecha was just like something in front of its

eyes. [King Kong] No. 079 only felt something flashing by his body before a broken mechanical

arm tightly gripped the mechanical arm that was wielding the blade.

[King Kong] No. 079 was startled, but it immediately reacted from that broken [Beast] mecha's

sneak attack. The Myth soldier within the cabin snorted as he used his fastest speed to turn

around and leap up from the ground before giving a series of kicks to the chest of that mecha

with its two thick and short legs.

’’Damn, such a fast reaction!’’ Tian Xing Jian cursed. Lifting the control stick, his right hand

immediately inputted commands. [Logic] followed along the movements of [King Kong]'s arms.

Borrowing its force, he dodged the two incoming mechanical legs as if he was a monkey holding

onto the tree branch as he swung here and there. No matter what, he would not let go of his

hold on the [King Kong]'s mechanical arms.

No. 079 had never before seen such a scoundrel move. That broken-looking mecha was truly

just like a dogskin plaster [1], truly making him angry! Seemingly as if he had no time to reach

the battle on the other side, No. 079 flipped its wrist, causing the ion-blade to move in an

unpredictable arc towards the [Logic] below him.

This sudden incoming blade frightened Tian Xing Jing so much that he started sweating.

Within about 0.1 seconds, he immediately gave up the control over the arms of the [King Kong].

Borrowing the force of the swinging arm, it entered the embrace of the [King Kong] Battle

Mecha. [Logic] was just like a broken sack, sticking powerlessly to the body of [King Kong]; its

two legs circling in a wretched and ambiguous manner around King Kong's waist.

Fatty was going to become a dogskin plaster that stuck onto [King Kong] till the end.

[King Kong] No. 079 was angered to the point of seeing stars. Bringing the two arms together,

the ion-blade that was held away from the body came swinging in an arc towards his own

abdomen. His movement was fast, decisive, and resolute as he seemingly wanted to pierce

through both the broken mecha and himself.

’’You want to take my precious life!?’’ Fatty was unable to breathe while his hands and legs

started getting cramps. The control stick was moving randomly and the hands in spasm were

just banging here and there. [Logic] was just like a monkey sliding down the tree, slipping away

by just a thread as he sat on his butt on the floor. The back of [Logic] had been pierced by the

ion-blade, creating some sparks from the collision as a deep scar appeared, showing that his

external armor had seemingly been cut into two. He had barely evaded from a fatal strike.

The ion-blade stopped just a few centimeters in front of [King Kong]'s own chest. The fine

control of the Myth soldier rendered Fatty speechless, as his extravagant hope of seeing him

stab himself was gone.

Without any delay, the [King Kong]'s wrist flipped once again, turning the blade over before

piercing down on [Logic]'s head.

Seeing the [Logic] sitting in front of him, the Myth soldier within the cabin laughed sinisterly.

Let's see how you dodge this!

’’Damn your mother for not wanting this father to live. This father isn't someone who can be

bullied so easily!’’ Fatty, who had been pushed to the brink of death, completely broke down.

Only a dozen seconds had passed since the start of the sneak attack, yet he had already entered

the boundary between life and death a few times. Fatty, who was pushed to a dead end, gritted

his teeth as a fierce light appeared in his eyes. The two arms of [Logic] contracted, strapping

tightly as if it were a sloth onto the legs of [King Kong]. Banging his head, he forced [King Kong]

down onto the ground. Following that, [Logic]'s mechanical arms suddenly and explosively

reached out, grabbing onto the legs of [King Kong]. Using its full strength, it lifted the entire

Battle Mecha up.

’’Let me tell you this! This father is the 8th Generation Battle Mecha an ultimate beast that

specializes in disassembling and assembling!’’ Fatty jumped up and down, shouting out within

his cabin as his neck turned red. [Logic] fiercely swung [King Kong], which was about several

dozen tons in weight, on the ground. With a ’’Hong!’’, dust flew up all over the place. Under the

enormous force of an alloy that weighed a dozen tons, it had created a huge hole in the ground.

’’Comparing strength!? This father's [Logic] is much stronger than your mother's gorilla!’’ Fatty

was so angry that he did not care about anything else. As he continued swinging it, he smashed

[King Kong] onto the ground to the extent that tremors could be felt from a distance. The ionblade

within [King Kong]'s hands had long flown away, and that Myth soldier within the cabin

had fainted from the very first smash! How could he find a margin to retaliate?

Fatty did not care!

Today, this father wanted to be satisfied! Bullying this father and almost killing this father

until he had almost peed in his pants this father is going to smash you, you f***ing dog!

In the cloud of dust, a broken-looking Battle Mecha was swinging the poor [King Kong]

frenziedly, giving off an image of a windmill that turned here and there. As if it were a piece of

iron in a forge, [King Kong] was continuously being smashed hysterically!

Finally, [King Kong], which was damaged beyond recognition and was heavily damaged from

the dozens of fierce smashes onto the ground, broke into two. Fatty was stunned for a moment

as he looked in a daze at the two mechanical legs within [Logic]'s hand before finally waking

up.

In the distant, the group of Federation Battle Mechas was driven mad at the sight of the

destroyed [King Kong]. Resorting to sneak attacks, this group had spent half a day while

teaming up before being able to get rid of a single one. The difficulty of defeating such a Battle

Mecha was only known to those who had experienced it first hand. So many people surrounded

them, and yet they could only damage two of them. Who would have thought that when the Vice

Company Commander Fatty became crazy, the broken-looking Battle Mecha would tear apart

the [King Kong] through brute force? What kind of monster was this vice company commander

exactly?

[King Kong] No. 051 felt wronged even more than No. 079. When Fatty grabbed hold of No. 079,

he had already rushed to a distance of 100 over meters. [King Kong]'s speed allowed him to run

faster the more he ran. He had felt that he was a fierce tiger, and the group of Federation Battle

Mechas was a group of sheep. The secretion of adrenaline caused him to feel even more excited.

Killing was, after all, the natural profession of all soldiers in the Myth Legion special forces.

They were warriors who lived for killing in battles!

With a mind full of killing intent and hot-bloodedness, when he was so impassioned with the

battle, the originally decreasing firepower suddenly came flooding on him. Even though the

defensive power of [King Kong] was strong, against [Fury Fire], which specialized in long-range

firepower support, and the several other warrior-class pioneers with weaker firepower that was

still comparable to a medium-sized Battle Mecha, No. 051 decided to change his direction of

movement. He was sneering. As long as he brought the five [Devil Tigers] close to them, those

Federation Battle Mechas would become trash, as close-combat battles were the specialty of the

Myth Legion. Even though many nations had started equipping their military with closecombat

Battle Mechas, the true professionals were still this group who had battled for several

hundreds of years the Myth Legion! Others had thought that [Devil Tiger] was the unique

Battle Mechas being used by the Myth Legion, but in reality, the [Devil Tiger] was just a product

that was being replaced. The more advanced close-combat Battle Mecha was the [King Kong].

A missile whistled over. As the firepower was too concentrated, [King Kong] had no time to

change its direction of movement. No. 051 sneered before releasing a decoy shot from the small

hole on its shoulder. As the decoy shot revolved in the air, the incoming missiles were attracted

to it as if it were a magnet, fiercely shooting into the revolving maelstrom created by the decoy

shot before exploding in mid-air. Such a far-distance explosion with its shrapnel and

shockwave were extremely mild to the [King Kong].

No. 051's sneer became even more exuberant. He was thinking how those Federation operators

must be dumbfounded within their cabins as they saw this. Even though [King Kong] was not

the best Battle Mecha Myth Legion had, it was still the standard Battle Mecha used by them!

Not to mention that this mecha was slowly replacing the [Devil Tiger]. Not only did it have a

speed faster than [Devil Tiger], it also had better defenses and stronger combat capabilities! It

was even equipped with even stronger and more formidable long-range weaponry.

His left thumb pressed down resolutely on the top of the control stick that controlled the

energy cannons, causing the two cannons on its head to suddenly emit a fierce howl! They were

even bigger than ordinary energy cannons and had a higher speed and more ferocious might!

The two warrior-class pioneers were trying their best to evade the incoming missiles, but the

incoming energy shells had shaved off half of their shoulders.

’’Hahahaha! Foolish Federation soldiers, I bet you must be dumbfounded!’’ [King Kong]'s

operator, No. 051, was laughing maniacally within his cabin. The Federation Battle Mecha's

panic performance made him giddy with joy. He wanted all those Federation Battle Mechas to

remember the terror of [King Kong] even after they became spirits.

That delightful laughter only lasted for two seconds before it stopped. The five [Devil Tigers]

suddenly leapt onto him, pushing [King Kong] onto the ground. Their sharp front claws

attacked the mechanical legs of the mecha, which was the only place in which the Federation

soldiers could attack without knowing the composition of the opponent's Battle Mecha due to

the thick armor on the other parts of [King Kong]. When No. 051 roared wildly and controlled

[King Kong]'s dancing ion-blade against the hyena-like [Devil Tigers], he discovered that even

if they were the Battle Mechas that were becoming obsolete, the [Devil Tiger]'s specialty its

front claws had proven its sharpness. A mechanical leg had been damaged to the extent that

its hydraulic system was broken, preventing it from being able to support [King Kong]'s huge

figure.

Thereafter, the [Devil Tigers] retreated as the flashing glow of energy cannons symbolizing

death covered this half-squatting [King Kong].

As the battle ended, there were sounds of transport ships coming from the skies. The

Federation Battle Mechas gathered beside Tian Xing Jian, as there were seemingly no more

enemies by their sides.

Right when everyone looked up towards the horizon, an energy shell came flying onto one of

the [Devil Tiger], emitting a sound of ’’Ding!’’ Following that shot, another shell soon came after

and landed upon the energy shield, causing ripples of blue to appear. The Federation Battle

Mechas immediately formed a defensive perimeter around it; however, they realized the scale

of the incoming firepower was not that large.

It was merely bullets after bullets that came flying over stubbornly from the forest. Finally, an

Imperial soldier came walking out with an energy rifle in his hand. As he edged closer, he

continued shooting at that [Devil Tiger]. Even knowing that this rifle could not damage the

[Devil Tiger] and that any of the Battle Mechas here could send him to heavens, he still

continued edging closer to the affirmed enemies, shooting them resolutely and firmly.
