Chapter 220 – Yun Che VS Fen Juebi

Today’s Sword Discourse Arena was filled with a peculiar kind of atmosphere. Especially members of the Burning Heaven Clan; their complexions were all quite unsightly.

The first match of the Quarterfinals was Yun Che versus Fen Juebi. Although Yun Che had surprised people time and time again in every one of his previous matches, to the majority of the audience, this competition was still not suspenseful at all. It wasn’t because they still held Yun Che in contempt after being shocked again and again, rather, it was because the image of the Four Major Sects prime positions had long since been deeply ingrained.

“You must win this match no matter what! Yuange was defeated by Frozen Cloud Asgard’s Xia Qingyue, and Jin’er had the misfortune of going up against Ling Yun. Out of all of us, the one remaining that entered the Quarterfinals, is only you! Looks like, in this session, the fact that we are still ranked fourth out of the Four Major Sects has essentially been decided. But, if you lose to this Yun Che brat, then we would not even be able to enter the top four and can only rank fifth! For our Burning Heaven Clan, this is an absolutely unacceptable humiliation… You understand?”

Fen Moli said with a heavy expression. In yesterday’s Round of 16, Burning Heaven Clan’s core disciple, his last grandson, Fen Jin, had the misfortune of going against Ling Yun, so he had to leave the stage prematurely. This made him suddenly feel extremely pressured. He could accept being at the bottom of the Four Major Sects’ rankings, after all, it had basically been that way for all these years. But if they placed outside of fourth place… This was a matter that had not happened for several hundreds of years! It was enough to bring shame to the entire Burning Heaven Clan, so he was absolutely positively unwilling to accept that.

And the first match of the Quarterfinals just happened to be the battle that decided that outcome! If they defeat Yun Che, Burning Heaven Clan would enter the top four, and even placing in the top three would become a possibility. But if they lose…

“Rest assured Great Elder. Coming across anyone of the six people outside of Yun Che and I, would have to make me carefully consider the match. But this Yun Che…” Fen Juebi laughed with extreme disdain: “Trash that completely relied on luck to get here doesn’t even have the qualifications to go against me. If I can’t even defeat him, then I seriously do not even have the face to continue living.”

Fen Moli nodded his head slowly. Even though the strength that Yun Che had displayed was more shocking than the next, he still had never believed that Fen Juebi could lose. However, his complexion was still as tense as before as he spoke in a low voice: “For you to have such self-confidence is naturally good. You can be confident in yourself but you must not, by any means, be too arrogant! Because that will deceive your eyes. Also, when going against Yun Che, you must not underestimate him. Yesterday, he suddenly revealed a bizarre and unpredictable movement skill that even I did not see through clearly. Not only that, he can also control fire as well, and it cannot be certain that he does not have the ability to restrain our Burning Heaven Fire. The most important thing worthy of careful attention, is that it does not seem like he has completely revealed his true strength… You must be careful!”

“Great Elder is overthinking it. His movement skill is merely a simple instantaneous displacement. How could it possibly compare to our Burning Heaven Clan’s ‘Burning Phantom Illusion’. Besides, even if his profound movement skill is a hundred times more delicately fine, it is useless within a Sword Discourse Arena entirely enveloped in the Burning Heaven Fire that has no blind spots. As for his control over fire, hahahaha… The fire he released yesterday was clearly the lowest level of profound fire, so how could it possibly compare to our Burning Heaven Fire? If you’re saying that he could possibly restrain my power, you might as well say that I could completely control his power.”

Fen Juebi’s expression was filled with complete disdain. His words made Fen Moli crease his brows as he said in a somewhat grave voice: “Juebi, there is one thing that I must remind you about. If you lose this match, then the entire Burning Heaven Clan would be humiliated. You must not become our Burning Heaven Clan’s sinner. If that happens, it is not certain if Clan Master would forgive you.”

Fen Moli’s last words finally made Fen Juebi retract his sloppy attitude and made him nod quite seriously: “Great Elder’s instructions are, that in this match, even if the opponent is many times weaker, I still should not hold back… To only win, and not lose.”

Fen Juebi closed in next to Fen Juecheng’s ear and softly said with half-narrowed eyes: “Big bro, the match is about to start soon. Do you want to cripple both his legs, burn his face off, or turn him into an eunuch?”

“Burn his face off!” Fen Juecheng’s eyebrows sunk as he answered without the slightest hesitation. Because during a match, this kind of matter could completely be regarded as an “unexpected accident”.

“I won’t let big bro down.” Fen Juebi stuck out his tongue and licked the corner of his lips. He quietly laughed sinisterly: “To me, instead of saying that this is a competition, I’d rather say that this is a… Mn, incomparably wonderful game.”

Time was approaching in the blink of an eye. Yun Che and Fen Juebi leapt to the center of the Sword Discourse Arena at almost the same time with a distance of more than thirty meters between them.

Yun Che’s expression was completely tranquil. But in the eyes of the Fen Juebi in front of him, he saw a distinct disdain and mockery, as well as a close to perverted cruelty mixed within. The corner of Yun Che’s mouth twitched, as a hint of a sneer flitted by.

In Fen Juebi’s eyes, Yun Che was a mere dish that he could flatten or make round.

But in Yun Che’s eyes, Fen Juebi was not even considered a dish. He was not even as threatening as yesterday’s Mu Xiongyan. Mu Xiongyan’s various unknown firearms had at least, scared him enough to choose to win by a surprise move in the shortest time possible. This Fen Juebi however, could be said to not even be a threat since the very beginning… Because this guy only played with fire.

“Say, do you think it’s possible for Yun Che to defeat Fen Juebi?”

“Isn’t this fundamentally impossible? While Fen Juebi’s profound strength is the same as yesterday’s Mu Xiongyan, his true strength is in a different level. He’s Fen Duanhun’s second son!”

“If Fen Juebi actually loses, Burning Heaven Clan would be kicked out of the top four and that would surely be fun to watch.”

“How could that kind of thing even happen…”

“Quick, look at what’s in Fen Juebi’s hands… That must be the legendary Sky Profound Weapon —— the Demon Flame Blade! It looks like that Fen Juebi’s not going to give Yun Che any chances whatsoever.”

“That’s only natural. To the Burning Heaven Clan, they have no other choice but to win and not lose this match. Even if the opponent is a mere grasshopper, they definitely cannot hold back.”

Even though the two on the Sword Discourse Arena had not exchanged words, the atmosphere was filled with a strangeness that was difficult to describe. Seeing that the two were already prepared, Ling Wugou did not wait any longer and waved his hand: “The first showdown of the Quarterfinals… Blue Wind Imperial Family’s Yun Che versus Burning Heaven Clan’s Fen Juebi, battle start!”

“Heh!” Fen Juebi laughed sinisterly: “If you had chosen to not get on stage and directly surrender, I seriously would not have known what to do. Luckily, you did not disappoint me and obediently came up here. It is already too late if you wish to surrender right now. Today, is going to be the most unforgettable day of your life.”

“Tch.” Yun Che curled his lips in disdain: “I never expected that not only are you ugly, you also say this much rubbish. No wonder Burning Heaven Clan could only stand at the bottom of the Four Major Sects, it’s actually made up of these piles of trash.”

With his poisonous tongue, Yun Che was indeed an expert in the same field. Fen Juebi immediately went into a violent rage once those words of his came out: “Die!!”

Scarlet flame ignited atop Fen Juebi’s body. Then, it all concentrated onto the Demon Flame Blade. The flame’s dazzling light reflected upon the surrounding profound energy barrier and revealed its shape, while bringing along an incomparably shocking high temperature. In the wake of Fen Juebi’s blade thrust, the flame on the blade’s body immediately swirled into a huge flaming tornado. Like a ferocious flame beast, it came at Yun Che with opened deadly fangs.

This power behind this strike made several tens of meters of audience cry out in alarm. Yun Che slightly lowered his brows as he instantaneously retreated backwards. The Overlord’s Colossal Sword immediately came out with a wave, and was then swung outwards, conjuring up a tyrannical profound energy tornado that collided with Fen Juebi’s flaming tornado. In a split second, Yun Che’s heavy sword energy was burnt out by Burning Heaven Fire. In turn, the Burning Heaven was extinguished by the heavy sword energy layer after layer. At the location of the two force’s collision, fire and space began to violently distort.


Following the loud explosion, the heavy sword energy and the flaming tornado were simultaneously exterminated. The two were pushed into the distance by the tremendous windstorm. Fen Juebi stood in place as his expression became even more dangerous: “Heh. You have truly surprised me. To have actually received a strike containing sixty percent of my strength, it looks like you did not entirely rely on luck to reach this place. Oh, but what a pity. In front of me, you are still merely trash.”

He pointed the Demon Flame Blade forward with slightly narrowed eyes and a proud posture, as if he was issuing Yun Che his life’s trial: “I was just greeting earlier. I’ll let you properly see and experience our Burning Heaven Clan’s Burning Heaven Fire next. Believe me, it is something that you will remember for a whole lifetime. Even until death, you would probably never forget its exquisite scenery. Hahahaha!!”

In the midst of his wild laughter, Fen Juebi suddenly dashed forward at a great speed as fire ignited once more on his body and the Demon Flame Blade. Bringing along a strand of fiery silhouettes, he immediately attacked Yun Che. Before he was even fifteen meters away from Yun Che, the flames on his body suddenly changed from scarlet to blue.

Orange colored flame was known as “ordinary fire”, and was the weakest level fire. Above orange fire, was scarlet colored fire. Middle-low level profound flame was also scarlet in color, and above scarlet, from the lowest level to the highest, was Blue Flame, Purple Flame, White Flame, Gold Flame, as well as the rumored Star Scorching Flame and Primordial Flame of legends.

When transforming profound energy into fire, its power could more or less be determined by the color of the flame. But as for the special flames of the Phoenix, Vermilion Bird, and Golden Crow, they were not ordinary profound fire, rather, they were the Divine Beast’s personal “Divine Fire” that possessed their own properties and color, which did not follow that sort of procedure.

Blue Flame, was profound fire that surpasses the Scarlet Flame by one level!

To everyone’s knowledge, only those who have reached the Earth Profound Realm were capable of releasing such high level profound flame!

Once this blue colored flame came out, it undoubtedly made the entire audience cry out in surprise.

“Blue… Blue Flame!!”

“It has been said that one needed to have profound strength in at least the Earth Profound Realm to have the capability of igniting blue colored profound flame… Fen Juebi’s innate talent for flames was actually this high! To actually have the capability of igniting blue colored profound flames at only the eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm.”

“As expected of the son of Burning Heaven Clan’s Clan Master, looks like Fen Juebi’s true strength needs to be evaluated once more. With him igniting blue colored profound flames, it seems like Yun Che does not even have a little bit of hope left.”

At the Burning Heaven Clan’s seating area, Fen Moli faintly laughed as he thought out loud: “Looks like this Great Elder’s words had frightened him. To have actually revealed his trump card so early, it is simply making a big deal out of a small matter, and using a butcher knife for oxes to kill chicken.”

“Come, let me hear the sounds of you crying, begging, and struggling!”

Fen Juebi laughed wildly as he closed in on Yun Che. The blue colored flames on his body suddenly exploded, dispersing into more than a dozen different sized flaming tornados. The flaming tornados quickly combusted in the air, spreading directly towards Yun Che as well as every nook and cranny within the profound energy barrier. It was as if it wanted to completely cover the space within the profound energy barrier and change the surroundings into a sea of blue colored fire without any blind spots…

  1. Next chapter is gona be so damn nice i expect the Burning Heaven elder to go crazy not only will they be kicked out of the turnament by Yun Che they will get their ass beaten by fire xDDD At least i hope he will finish it with fire that would be the ultimate humiliation to the “top fire sect” of the continent 😀

  2. well guys do your bets!!!! what will happen with the atack? will Yun Che take it head on? stop it with a finger? ask for a higher temperature to cook some food and do some tea? rebound the atack to make fen juebi take it? make it disappear like nothing?

    and how will yun che win? will he burn his face off? will he show off his sky profund weapon the almighty Dragon Fault? will he just keep taking atacks until he rans out of power and then push hum to the ground?
    will he cripple him using his own atack making it look he didn’t control his Blue Flames?


    1. Since his opponent plans to be very cruel and Yun Che knows that and he likes to repay the favor he will propably solve this the most cruel and humiliating way 🙂
      There is only 1 way take the flames head on without injury and then defeat the strongest fire based sect with fire and burn him to a crisp to humiliate them so bad they will propably suicide xD

      1. Pretty obvious what’s gonna happen, Yun Che is gonna shrug off that blue fire attack, everyone will flip out and then Fen Juebi will be forced, judging from the image in the next chapter, to unleash an uber fire dragon attack which Yun Che will take on and also extinguish then Fen Juebi and grandpappy Fen Moli will have a stroke from the shock giving Yun Che a win and a slot at the semi finals. 😀

    2. I am going with tea. And inviting some girls down to join him, since it’s so cool and refreshing down on the stage covered in blue flames…

      and then turn on the oven, and bake some humble pie for his opponent to eat/die in an fiery inferno.

      He is obviously not a big enough threat to reveal his true weapon, his d**k…. sorry, wrong 2 handed sword, was obviously referring to dragon fault.

  3. Is Yun Che immune to fire or highly resistant to fire? Until now he has had no trouble with fire but I wonder if he’s really not affected by certain fires like that Star Scorching Flame and Primordial Flame. Makes want to drop him into the Sun to see what happens. >:D

    1. With his Fire seed he gained immunity to flames so logically he should be completly immune against all kinds of flames just remember he didnt even feel hot in the flames of the phoenix (a god) 🙂

    2. immune. he could easily bath in the flames of the primordial Phoenix’s divine flames.

      Soo, yeah, he could literally go sunbathing, if he only found a way to get enough oxygen to breath…

    1. And not a good one to be honest… we know that he is fire proof.. so even if we knew he’d win for his other matches, the hype for this one just seems like a joke…. just there to prolong our suffering….

      1. this is a different type of hype the hype of asking yourself… how will Fen Juebi be humilliated? just thinking on all the possibilities… is making me droll

  4. You know, Fen Juecheng seems like a bad guy…. but it seems many readers might actually be more evil than him…

    Think about it… he didn’t tell his brother to burn Yun Che’s balls, but just damage the face… (though for Yun Che personally, it might be worse, but for most people in general, not as bad).

    Yet considering how on this site (and others) most people wouldn’t care if the MC breaks the balls of any of their enemies….. aren’t we worse than Fen Juecheng?

    That said, still want him dead….

    1. “Burn his face off!” Fen Juecheng’s eyebrows sunk as he answered without the slightest hesitation. Because during a match, this kind of matter could completely be regarded as an “unexpected accident”.

      the key words are regarded as un “unexpected accident”.
      if he asked to burn Yun Che’s balls and making sure there is no descendants for him and no more virginitys stolen and some other stuff…(Cang Yue, Xia Quinxue, Jasmine, Little aunt…lets be serious Little Fairy will go down more times too… ) or too cripple his legs( i think it would be destroying the nerves meridians i think they call them here to make sure he cannot walk)
      would be saw like intentionally destroying those 2 things… no matter how you see it the atacks on the spars in tournaments don’t usually go for the balls or destroy legs if you don’t have the intention of doing so but when atacking with fire… is normal to leave behind incredible burns so yeah it was the outcome that makes sure that he is not expulsed from the tournament even knowing he wants the 3 of them he choses to be able to fight for a better place at the tournament

      Sorry for the long and boring explanation when i start doing things like this i enter my teacher type boring explanation

  5. If Yun faces his wife at the final round, I hope he surrenders. Would be one hell of a shock and he doesn’t have to harm his wife.
    The first place prize seems to be more beneficial to her them him anyway.

    1. I don’t think he will surrender, but i believe he will lose, either by letting her win or she’ll really be stronger than him.
      And yes, i also believe that the 1st place prize isn’t that good for him, but neither is the 2nd (just until he gets the Dragon God Bone Marrow) nor the 3rd place prize.

      1. you want him to get 4th place? as in, lose the next bout?

        sure, the armor might not super useful to someone that essentially is walking around in dragonscale that grows with his power level… but it’s still a good armor, and if nothing else, it will make it harder for people to guess how special his body is. Not to mention he can regift it to his harem when he gets a better one.

        But i think we all can agree, third place is a joke to him, and second place is going to be useless in 2 years time when he gets the divine dragon version

        1. It should still make his body a bit stronger… every little bit could help ya know…

          Though I wonder…. can he now directly drink the flame dragon’s blood? Or would he still need to dilute it?

    2. If he faces her in the finals i think he will surrender after a few exchange of blows and he will say that now he is too weak to beat her and etc, and i will like it just because of the shock xD

    3. everybody… i don’t think he is going o surrender not going to let her win because the prize for the first is too good and because winning is giving Cang yue and the Blue imperial wind family a really good reputation… and lets be serious he will have a good time with Cang Yue if he wins (i he loses too but…)

      And I find more probably that he will face Ling Yun in the finals…

    4. not realy…

      3 place is a temporary boost that he can grant permanent since chapter 1. extremely useless other than as a present or to trade away…

      2 place is a worse version of the price he has been promised by the Dragon god. (even if i personally think it sounded like a better reward than the first price…)

      1 place is something he can actually use to increase his power, since he is lacking other gear than swords and some of the more common poisons and cures. (ok, technically, he has an entire sects treasury stashed away, but it was just a branch sect without access to things above earth rank)

        1. We haven’t actually been told what the dragon god’s soul and marrow does so it could end up doing something else meaning the second place prize will benefit him.


      Third place in the ranking tournament’s individual rankings, will receive one ‘Purple Striped Dragon Heart Pellet’ = opens all profound entrances for one month.

      Second place in individual rankings, will receive three drops of ‘Purple Veined Marrow Quenching Fluid’ = refines bone marrow and brain; permanent enhancement.

      First place in individual rankings, will receive a Sky Profound Artifact, Dragonscale Armor = the only prize that should interest Yun Che.

      1. Im thinking he wont get first place. I feel like he should taste defeat once. Maybe he will get 2ndand trade prizes with 1st place lol… Maybe the prizes dont even matter and hes just gonna get awesome stuff in the weird portal land or whatever

    1. Well IMO 1 a day is pretty excelent already! Its actually a lot better than most novels out there!
      I rather have them steadily releasing 1 a day than burning out and stop releasing chapters as many others have done before!

      Wouldn’t mind more ofc but quite happy if they can keep releasing 1 a day!

  6. welp. and now the release notification for this chapter has been pushed off without another one coming out. I don’t think this has ever actually happened before.

  7. Blue Flames? Not even warm enough to tickle!
    Thanks for the chapter, alyschu, anon, azim a, Hongly U, and Brian M! Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤
    Thanks to Philosopher Stone senpai for the comment.

  8. Okay, I am in great confusion right now. I have been reading comments from last 50 chapters and people would always talk about some picture or gifs in the chapters. What picture and gifs? This novel actually illustrations or what? I can’t see any link or picture just plain black bold text.

  9. “That’s only natural. To the Burning Heaven Clan, they have no other choice but to win and not lose this match. Even if the opponent is a mere grasshopper, they definitely cannot hold back.”

    This example made me think of someone using an atom bomb to wipe out a single person. Overkill. But we all know that yun che will might be so sadistic that this bastard would suddenly transform into a masochist.

  10. “It has been said that one needed to have profound strength in at least the Earth Profound Realm to have the capability of igniting blue colored profound flame… Fen Juebi’s innate talent for flames was actually this high! To actually have the capability of igniting blue colored profound flames at only the eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm.”

    Yun Che: “Meh, I use fiercer flames for cooking, buzz off you little creep.”
