After hurling his Golden Dragon Spear, Tang Wulin immediately activated his mecha's propeller again, sending him hurtling toward his opponent like a giant dragon.
He had forced his opponent to take defensive measures and used this opportunity to close down the distance between the two of them. If he could reach a certain distance from his opponent, then the battle would be as good as over.
He waved a hand through the air, and the Golden Dragon Spear returned to his grasp before being hurled forth again. He was going to use his Golden Dragon Spear as a long-range attacking weapon during this battle.
On this occasion, Number 231 managed to react in time, and a string of cannon blasts was launched toward the Golden Dragon Spear with unerring accuracy. As opposed to attacking the Golden Dragon Spear head-on, he was aiming at a spot just below the tip of the spear, trying to divert it upward instead of attempting to stop it cold in its tracks.
10 cannon blasts were unleashed at once, and four of them altered the trajectory of the Golden Dragon Spear while the remaining six completed a very advanced technique; stacked explosion!
A stacked explosion referred to when one cannon blast caught up to another before exploding at a desired location, following which more cannon blasts would catch up and continue to fuel the explosion. The six cannon blasts stacked on top of one another and exploded in virtually the blink of an eye. Due to the fact that these cannon blasts had been unleashed on a straight-line trajectory on this occasion, they were imbued with the most explosive force possible.
The six cannon blasts had exploded right in front of Tang Wulin, yet with the prior experience he had accumulated, Tang Wulin naturally wasn't going to allow his opponent to control him again. A series of Bluesilver Emperor erupted forth, enveloping his mecha in a suit of vines. Immediately thereafter, all of the vines seemed to have sprung to life as giant pythons with golden spines and meridians glowing within them. The vines themselves were also flashing with piercing light, and Tang Wulin made no effort to evade as he continued to charge on ahead.
That was way too barbaric! He was charging headfirst into a stacked explosion!
If this were only a generic mecha with no enhancements, then it would've immediately been blasted into pieces by the stacked explosion. However, with the protection of the Bluesilver Emperor vines, all of the explosive force was kept at bay.
Tang Wulin's powers had improved significantly, his bloodline power and soul power had fused with one another, and his two major energy cores had established a perfect connection; all of this had also been enhancing his martial soul. The Bluesilver Emperor had already taken on some of the Golden Dragon King's defensive and offensive prowess, so this stacked explosion was nothing to it.
After crashing directly through the stacked explosion, the Golden Dragon Spear had reappeared in Tang Wulin's hand again. However, on this occasion, Tang Wulin hurled the Golden Dragon Spear high up into the air.
That's right, he had hurled it into the air as opposed to at his opponent. Golden light flashed, and the Golden Dragon Spear vanished into thin air.
What was he trying to do?
Only Number 231 had an inkling of what Tang Wulin was doing. He was a long-range attacking mecha pilot himself, so he was naturally aware that the most fearsome long-range attacks were the ones that were already in flight, but were also out of sight.
It was undoubtedly the case that the Golden Dragon Spear would fall eventually, but he didn't know when and where it was going to fall. His opponent had chosen to hurl it up into the air, so he definitely possessed sufficient control over his spear. This meant that there was a Golden Dragon Spear constantly hanging over his head, and if it were to fall, it could quite possibly inflict a lethal blow. During his first clash with the Golden Dragon Spear, he had already been alerted to the fact that this extraordinarily sharp spear was not something that his defenses could withstand.
As such, he immediately made a decision. As a long-range attacking mecha pilot, the ability to judge a situation was of the utmost importance. Only by immediately making the correct decisions could he ensure his own safety and defeat his opponent on a constantly changing battlefield.
Hence, he chose to ignore the Golden Dragon Spear and attacked the oncoming Tang Wulin instead.
The crimson color of his mecha immediately deepened into a maroon color, and the excessive heat was making the metal on the surface of his mecha display signs of melting.
He tossed his soul cannon away and raised both of his mecha's arms into the air. A black sun rose up behind him, and a halo of golden light was visible around the black sun.
He waved both hands through the air, and the shimmering black ball was sent flying toward Tang Wulin.
This was solely an ability of his own, rather than one unleashed with the assistance of his mecha. However, it was quite clear that this attack was definitely going to be far more fearsome than those unleashed by his mecha's soul cannon. The fact that he had chosen to discard his soul cannon to unleash this attack instead was a clear indication of which one was more powerful.
Tang Wulin continued to charge toward him like an unstoppable raging bull, rushing directly toward the black ball of light without any intention of changing directions.
He was going to see just what his opponent's attack was capable of! At the same time, countless Bluesilver Emperor vines had risen up around his mecha, making the mecha resemble a monster with countless tentacles. Prior to their clash, no one knew what Tang Wulin was going to do.
The black sun shot forth, and all of the Bluesilver Emperor vines around Tang Wulin erupted forth as countless spears. All of the vines were converging toward one point, piercing directly toward the center of the black ball of light.
At this point, there were roughly 100 meters between the two of them.
Three more black balls of light had already been unleashed by Number 231, and just as Tang Wulin's Bluesilver Emperor vines were about to make contact with the first ball of light, the three balls of light behind it abruptly accelerated. The three balls of light fused as one to form a larger ball of light, then emitted a strange suction force that drew back the first ball of light, which was just about to clash with Tang Wulin.
As such, his Bluesilver Emperor vines struck nothing but empty air while the four black balls of light combined to form a massive ball of light with a diameter of over five meters.
Golden electricity was flashing along the surface of the huge ball of light, and it was quite apparent just from looking at it that the attack was imbued with extremely terrifying power. In the next instant, the ball of light suddenly vanished.
That's right, it had disappeared into thin air as if it had been sucked into a black hole.
A scorching sensation suddenly welled up deep within Tang Wulin's soul, and his expression stiffened as the spatial fluctuations around him suddenly became more violent.
Not only did this Number 231 possess a powerful fire attribute martial soul, he also had a second spatial attribute martial soul!
No matter how calm and steadfast Tang Wulin was, there was no way that he wouldn't be shaken after his opponent used their spatial abilities to teleport such a powerful fire attribute attack directly into his mecha!
His spiritual power was nearing the pinnacle of the Spirit Abyss realm, so he was immediately alerted to what was happening as soon as the spatial fluctuations appeared.
His opponent had twin martial souls!
If that terrifying black ball of fire were to appear within his mecha, the consequences would undoubtedly be catastrophic. Even if he could withstand the formidable attack with his defensive prowess, he would definitely still be hurt, and there was no way that his mecha would be able to survive.
It was undoubtedly the case that Tang Wulin's aggressive performance had forced his opponent to unleash their hidden trump card. Teleporting his attack directly into his opponent's mecha was borderline cheating. If Tang Wulin had known about this ability of his beforehand, he could've just constantly activated his mecha's protective barrier to isolate it from the outside space, and he wouldn't have to fear this attack.
However, generally speaking, a high-level mecha pilot generally wouldn't waste their mecha's energy by constantly maintaining its protective barrier unless they had to defend against an attack.
Tang Wulin had naturally been doing the same thing, and when he realized that something was amiss, the scorching sensation had already appeared.
