Disgaea Jewel of the gods chapter 24: Unknown power source
"Bloody talons!" A dragon flew up into the sky, and tried to claw at Adell. Adell punched the dragon as soon as it flew down to him, before kicking the dragon to the air, and throwing him down.
"Earthshaker!" A dog, pig thing called a nether noble, burrowed into the ground, and uppercutted Laharl from it. Laharl took the pain, and used blazing knuckle on him.
"Slime headbutt!" A slime attached itself onto Mao, and bashed it's head on him repeatedly. Mao countered with his blast finger killing the slime.
"How many demons are there?" Mao asked.
Laharl and the Nether Noble were dueling with swords. Laharl kicked the demon away, and succesfully dodged an attack from a orc. "Nice idea idiots. Because we're with Zetta, we have to take out billions of demons all at once."
Adell punched a catsaber in the face, uppercutted a prinny sky high, and used soaring fire on a mothman. "Man. I don't know how much more we can take."
"Is that all you can take?" Zetta asked them.
Laharl used overlords wrath on several demons. "We've fighting for 4 hours dumbass. Of course we're exhausted!"
"Well, you shown that you can do well in a battle, but a bunch of these guys are just at level 30. That's more then 20 levels below you. But, I'll still accept you. But you better be useful against stronger enemies. You still haven't fought demons at a higher level then you yet."
"BEAST RAY!" A beast yelled. Laharl, Mao, and Adell jumped away, expecting a laser to try and attack them. Instead, the beast aimed his attack at the army of demons that were currentley fighting the trio. The beast's laser killed all of the demons except for him, a gargoyle, a zombie, a spirit, a red dragon, and a golem.
"I guess they want to be the only ones to fight us then." Mao said.
"Hey there prince." The gargoyle said.
Laharl realized who these 6 were. "Why are you guys here?"
"Etna sent us here to drag you back to the netherworld." The golem told him.
"We'll be awarded with half of the treasure room when we succeed!" A zombie yelled.
Laharl's eyes became red in anger, and his hair stood up. "That's my allowance! You aren't laying your hands on it!"
"Who are they?" Mao asked.
"These were the vassals of my old man until he died. They disrespected me, untll I ended the war between my netherworld, and celestia."
Zetta jumped to face the 6 monsters. "What makes you think you can take my servant so easily?"
Unlike the idiots that were trying to kill Zetta from earlier, these 6 were in fear, because they kne they wouldn't win. "Ze...Zetta! Etna never told us we'd have to fight him!" The ghost screamed.
"Crap! How can we win against him?" The terrified gargoyle asked.
"Alright. I have a plan. We have zombie take the fall, grab the prince, and run away." Golem told them.
"Hey! Just because I'm undead doesn't mean I have any less rights to live as you five!"
"You're right. We need both you, AND spirit." The red dragon decided.
"What!" Ghost screamed. The 6 were arguring over who should be bait for Zetta to kill, while the others grab Laharl, and get the money.
"Relax. I won't fight you guys." Zetta reassured them.
"R-really?" The gargoyle asked.
"If you can beat these three, you can have the kid. But try and confront me, and you're going to die."
The vassals were relieved. "Phew. I'm glad I'm not going to die today." Beast said.
"Don't count on that!" Laharl ran to the six vassals to attack.
"Shock magic!" The spirit screamed. The spirit with a hood on summoned three bolts of lighting to strike Laharl.
"Cannonball!" The gargoyle generated a huge ball of energy, and threw it at Laharl.
"My turn!" The beast grabbed Laharl between his teeth and shook him like a chew toy, before throwing him away. "Eh. It isn't as entertaining as it used to be." The vassals laughed as Laharl became enraged.
"STOP TOYING WITH ME!" Laharl rushed to the beast and slashed. The beast jumped out of the way.
"Look prince, if you come nice and easy, you won't be humiliated as much."
"I'M...AN...OVERLORD!" Laharl used his dimensional slash on the 6, but the dragon breathed fire, destroying the attack.
"Damn. Now what?" Laharl asked. Adell facepalmed. He then kicked the unsuspecting beast in the face.
"You know, there are times where you need to let go of your pride and ask people for help." Adell told the small overlord.
"Wait, we're HELPING HIM!" Mao asked.
"Sure. Seeing the shrimp fight alone won't help me decide if you two will be allowed to travel with me." Zetta told Mao.
"WHO ARE YOU CALLING A MICROBE FLEA!" Laharl screamed, twisting the words.
"The prince is going to be no problem at his current level." The red dragon roared.
Laharl was about to shout that he's an overlord, but Zetta interupted. "Alright then. THIS is going to be your final test! Disperse my battle monkeys! Go bust a cap!"
Adell ran to a golem and tried to punch, and roundhouse kick him, but the golem blocked each blow, grabbed Adell by his leg, and threw him.
"Evil modification!" Mao yelled. He punched the golem into the air, and got out mechanical arms that held the golem up. "Now be a nice little specimen, and don't struggle!"
"What are you doing?" The golem asked. More mechanical arms came, attached to drills, knives, and razor blades.
Over the screaming Mao was huffing with blood raining down. "Let's see. Spleen of a sea serpent, lungs of a human, brain, and heart positions swaped, I think this will work!"
The golem fell down, with it's new, or rearranged organs. "So... much... pain." The golem said in each dying breath.
"Crap. Anyone here have a healing item?" The spirit asked.
"Hold on. I think I have some cotton candy here somewhere." The zombie said, reaching into his own body. "Ah, there it is!" He pulled out cotton candy, and gave it to the golem, healing the gas monster.
"Wait. If he's completley made of gas how can he have organs?" Adell asked.
"Don't question these things. We're in a video game for crying out loud." Laharl responded.
"Zombie swarm!" While they were distracted, countless zombies popped out of the ground and surrounded Mao.
"Crap." All of the zombies beat up Mao in the attack, before they all went away, except for the original one.
"I'm not done!" The zombie held Mao. "Now beast!"
"Stinger strike!" The beast's scorpion tail injected Mao, and drained health from him.
The zombie then threw Mao to the ground. "The only reason you aren't dead is because we're in a forgiving mood. Give us the prince, and run away."
Mao would be more then glad to get rid of the loud mouthed overlord, but he knew that if they gave up, they would lose Zetta, their only lead. "Now Beryl, do it now!"
"What!" All 6 vassals looked behind them. Mao smiled and got out his sword. He sliced the zombie to pieces, and stabbed the beast in his kidney, along with doing a decent amount of damage to the other 4.
"That was dirty!" The zombie yelled as his head fell to the ground.
"There is no dirty in a fight idiot. Especially if it's between demons!"
"Minimize!" The gargoyle used this move to shrink down Mao. He then squished the mad scientist, before Mao grew back to normal. "Hey, you guys alright?" He asked the beast and the zombie.
"I've been stabbed in one of my organs, and zombie has been slashed into pieces. YOU find out if we're alright."
"Quit being a baby." The dragon vassal told him. "Red Nova!" The dragon flew up into the air, and breathed fire on all three of the main characters.
"Overlords wrath!" Laharl's orbs collided with the dragon's flames, cancelling out both attacks. From the smoke Adell jumped up and punched the dragon in the face, before smashing him into the ground.
"Shine Beam!" Mao fired several lasers at super sonic speed's, all hitting the dragon.
"Golem smash!" The golem became much bigger, and fell to the ground, creating fissures that damaged Adell, Laharl, and Mao.
"Ice magic!" The spirit created an icicle spear, and impaled Adell with it. "Unlike the prince, we don't need to keep you guys alive. We'll kill you right now if you keep this up."
"I'M...AN...OVERLORD!" Laharl shouted at the top of his lungs. "Meteor Impact!" He jumped on the meteor that was about to crush King Krichevskoy's vassals. "Haaaaahahahahaha!"
"Zombie Puke!" Despite the fact that it was no longer attached to it's lower body, the zombie puked on the meteor, and destroyed it.
"How does that even work?" Adell asked.
Laharl gritted his teeth in anger. 'Now what?' He then felt pain in his body.
"Golem dunk!" The gas monster picked up Laharl, and jumped into the air before throwing him to the ground.
"Soul eater!" The gargoyle slashed Laharl, and stole part of his life, adding it to the gargoyles own.
"Beast rend!" The beast clawed through Laharls' skin, and a cool looking blue shockwave animation went through the blue haired demon.
"You're going to pay for that!" Laharl lifted his sword, but then clenched his body in pain. "GHA! What IS this?"
Zetta, Mao and Adell had no idea what was going on with Laharl. But they didn't give a crap, and continued to fight.
"Dark X Slash!" Mao carved an 'X' on the dragon, and slashed it repeatedly.
"Blazing Palm!" Adell made a flaming hurricane from his hands that lifted the gargoyle off the ground, and it then fell. "Hey kid, aren't you going to help us out?"
Laharl didn't hear Adell over his own inner pain. 'No way.' He thought. 'Dying like THIS? Not going to happen!' A few seconds later, he screamed. "AHHHHH!"
"Um... prince?" The spirit asked.
"He's not going to die is he? Etna would kill us!" The dragon panicked.
Laharl opened his eyes. They were flashing different colors, instead of just red. "I won't lose." He started to build up mana for his next attack.
"What's going on?" Zombie asked, after putting himself back together.
"I...don't know." Gargoyle asked. "But I think we shouldn't toy with the prince anymore. Let's get serious!"
"Right!" The vassals each used their most powerful moves. Zombie swarm, Beast ray, Eruption, Dragonic flare, Golem smash, and Ice Magic, with little damage being succesful.
"You think he's temporarily back at his own strength again?" Mao asked.
"No. The power he has right now is only half as strong as when I fought him at Shinra tower." Adell responded. "Still, we can definetley means that we can beat these guys now."
"What the hell is this?" Zetta asked. "This must be what Baal is after."
"Are you still messing with me? Those attacks barley did anything!" Laharl yelled. He was completley unaware of his sudden boost of power.
The vassals were shocked. They had no idea what was happening. In their confusion, Adell punched the golem, Mao used Vaesa Aergun on the beast, and Laharl used blazing knuckle on the gargoyle, spirit, zombie, and dragon.
"Take this!" The dragon breathed a huge amount of fire on the 3. Adell blocked it, allowing him to use 'No way out' on the dragon.
"Time to show you the power of the netherworlds number 1 honor student!" Mao yelled. "Dimensional slash!" Mao slashed the vassals with a huge green aura.
"You call THOSE attacks? Step aside, and learn from the best!" Laharl gloated. "Overlords Wrath!" The orbs struck all the vassals, with huge craters being remained.
"Screw the reward! I'm out of here!" The spirit screamed.
"Me too!" The zombie agreed. Soon enough all of King Krichevskoy's 6 vassals ran away.
"Hey look! Zetta!" A random sea serpent yelled.
"Kill Zetta!" More idiotic demons screamed.
"All I hear is 'Zetta, Zetta, Zetta.' Well no more! Time to show you a REAL overlord! METEOR IMPACT!" While only half the power of Laharl's original strength, the meteor impact was more then enough to wipe out the entire army of demons.
Laharl's eyes stopped flashing, and it was back to pure red. The mana boost was gone, and he was breathing heavilly. "I...win."
"You didn't do everything you know." Mao reminded him.
"Please. If it weren't for ME you *huff* you would be dead by...now." Laharl collapsed after finishing that sentence. He was fast asleep.
"That brat." Mao said while gritting his teeth. "I would kill him right now if he wasn't such an interesting specimen."
Adell picked up Laharl, and carried him on his back. "So we passed?" He asked Zetta.
Zetta jumped of the mountain he stood on. "Sure. You guys aren't too powerful, but you have a lot of spirit. You seem like you'd rather die then give up."
"You got that right. I'd keep fighting even if my limps are torn off. That's just my style!"
"Well unlike these idiots, I can easily outsmart any opponent I face. My EQ of 1.8 million will be far to much of a mact for them." Mao said.
"You guys are hired. But I won't fight for you every single time. That would hardly be a challenge." Zetta told them.
"Fine by me. By the way, you know what this 'jewel of the gods' is?" Adell asked.
Zetta thought for a moment. "I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Pram's little game, but I never heard of it. But that's not important. That bastard Baal is going down, even if we don't have it!"
"Well, we need to find a dimensional gate so we can go the the human world." Mao said. "To do THAT we need to pass a bill at the Dark Assembly."
"Then hurry up!" Zetta commanded. They then walked forward to call up the dark assembly. Adell was thinking.
'So was that jewel of the gods thing related to the kids spike in mana? And what does Baal even want with it? He can destroy netherworlds without it.'
From far behind, a girl with long black hair was following the four from far behind. "That's right. Keep walking. I WILL take the main character role from you, or die trying!"
Usagi: Beauty Queen Etna has made an announcement that has brought even more demons going to netherworld 4500 C.
Usagi: She announced that anybody who mannages to bring overlord Laharl to his netherworld alive, will get half of the treasure room.
Usagi: Despite his appearence, overlord Laharl is ranked at number 9 for most powerful overlords, and is the richest overlord in the whole universe. An award like that would cause a prinny to atone for it's sins immediatley.
Usagi: This has caused even more demons to go to this overlordless netherworld. With inetentions to kill Zetta, and collect the bounty on Laharl's head, the overlookable netherworld now is incredibly popular.
Usagi: In more important news, aliens are going to destroy earth for an intergalactic freeway, which will be completed in 60 years.
"Hell yeah! I'm on the news! About TIME people know my worth!" Laharl cheered after waking up.
And this is the chapter. So sorry for the wait. Hopefully this makes up for it. Tell me what you think about the chapter. And earth being torn down for an intergalactic freeway is a reference to a book series. See if you can guess it, and you can have a cameo. (You MUST do it on your regular account. Not as an annonymous user.)
