There's no way that is a berserk skill because if it is then there must be tiers since this thing is giving off an insane amount of pressure.
A dark red aura had coated his white and rainbow fire giving it a demonic feeling. The fire harpies that were watching the match quickly evacuated knowing what's to come. The only ones that stayed were James and the guards keeping watch over Kumo but even they had a pale face with cold sweat drenching their clothes.
Seeing the reaction caused by the berserk skill I knew that it was dangerous. The ring doesn't matter anymore I have to survive.
Dashing around I looked for openings but it was as if he was only openings. Pondering for a bit I knew that wasn't the case. If it has the same properties as my berserk skill then that means the bloodlust is showing openings purposely in order to lure me in for a trap.
It could be that I'm just overthinking it but if it was just mindlessly trying to kill me it would have already come for me. He's just standing there with his head hanging as if he just died standing up.
If possible I would like to try not using [Berserk] again since I don't know what's going to happen to me after it.
As a test, I fire a [Thunderbolt] at it which instantly gets absorbed but not like before. This time the red aura had turned into a mouth that ate and started to chew on my skill before making a swallowing motion.
After the aura had finished swallowing my skill the chief moved. He ran so fast that he turned into a blur which I was barely able to keep up with. As he threw a punch I parried and threw a kick right at him. The temperature of the fire hadn't changed but when I came in contact with the aura I felt my mana being drained.
Quickly retreating from my attack I tried to make some space in between us but he was able to close the gap in a split second.
As he attacked me I split part of my attention on checking my status in case I had something I could use in this fight...

[A skill that sharpens your claws and increases your attack power with said pair of claws. Consumes SP instead of MP.]
[A skill that lightens your claws and hands. Consumes SP instead of MP.]
These might work but I don't know how much SP these skills consume. For all, I know it could drain every last drop of stamina I have and I would be immobilized for quite a while allowing the chief to finish me off.
"... Fuck it, I'll die if I don't try," I mutter.
Activating both skills I feel strength flow through my body all the way to my claws and hands but mainly my claws. Not wasting this power I parry another attack which then I send a kick right to his gut.
The chief gets sent flying and all I feel is just a slight sense of fatigue.
The faces on the harpies still near the battlefield were of pure awe as they saw their enraged chief get sent flying across the plateau that is the top of the canyon of volcanoes. The people who had seen their chief use this skill before knew that everything and anything could be destroyed in his path.
Taking in a sharp breath I flap my wings and dart across the air. Descending towards him like a rocket I hold out my claws in front of me and prepare to strike him with everything I had. I even went the extra step and used [Shadow Magic] binding him to the ground.
Another impact could be heard as I landed on top of the chief creating a small crater underneath. The chief coughed out blood before becoming unconscious. Even though the chief was knocked out, his aura had lashed out at me like a cornered animal. It couldn't leave a certain radius but still tried to intimidate me by creating certain weapons.
"Has this guy's aura actually become sentient? It moves as if it's alive," I said while firing some skills at it.
After about 5 minutes of the aura lashing out at me with different weapons, it had suddenly started to convulse. Not long after it coated the body of the chief devouring the white and rainbow flame eventually working towards his body. The skin had slowly started to peel off as the surrounding harpies that came back to witness who won grimaced at the sight of their chief.
What! No, I want to eat his body... maybe I can gain the skills he used in our fight.
Feeling my body gradually building more fatigue I realized I had to fix this quick. Kicking the aura with my enhanced claws it started to disperse but it didn't go down without a fight. As I started to have a tussle with the aura scratches could be seen all over my legs. Even though I was getting injured whilst fighting it my [Enhanced Regneration] quickly healing my legs up leaving absolutely no scars.
The aura had finally died down as I reached out to the chief's chest. I was only checking if he was still alive since his face had paled tremendously and his body was ice cold.
[3400 XP gained]
[You leveled up (x3)]
[You gained the following title]
[Chief of the Fire Harpies]
"He died... perfect," I whisper.
With this, the harpies will have to follow me while I can eat him. If I'm lucky I can get some of his skills like that coat of fire. Now to only convince the people to get out of this boring place and let me keep his body.
"RESIDENTS OF THIS VILLAGE, AS YOU HAVE SEEN I HAVE WON THE DUEL! I THINK BY THE RULES I AM NOW YOUR NEW CHIEF BUT DO NOT CALL ME THAT! CALL ME QUEEN! I WILL TAKE YOU ALL TO MY KINGDOM SO HELP ME OUT WITH SOME THINGS I NEED TO TAKE CARE OF!" I announce allowing all the residents of the village to hear me.
The first thing I would like to do is gather all the other villages because more residents of my kingdom allow me to have more manpower in case of an emergency. I would also like to fill up some of the vacant spaces in my kingdom since we have way too many resources to use for our own good.
Second, this might sound crazy but I want to draw out the guardian of this place... the phoenix. I have a good feeling from how the fight just went from earlier that I can take it down. If not I'll just gather the hunters and the leaders to crush it. But the only way I can draw the phoenix out is by removing all of his residents. I saw earlier that they had shrines to worship it as if it was a god.
After explaining to some of the harpies that seemed pretty high ranking my plan they followed my order without hesitation. This might be due to the effect of my new title which if it is then I'll have to reevaluate my opinion on titles. But enough of that going back to high ranking harpies only one had disobeyed my order... James. As soon as the fire harpies heard my instructions and left James ordered the guards surrounding Kumo to aim their weapons at her. But... I didn't need to worry about her.
Using [Acid Secretion] she melted the guards away into pools of blood while James had fallen on his butt in fear. He also had a wet spot near his crotch which I'm assuming he had pissed himself.
"Pfffft, get out of here I don't want to deal with a weakling like you," I laughed.
James ran away in fear but also had an enraged expression showing that something bad might happen in the future.
"Well I'll deal with it when that time comes, Kumo you want to eat something because today we're having the harpy chief!" I say while drooling, while Kumo was also doing the same thing.
"Goddammit, I'll make her pay. I'll ask for help from our god and once he descends even she can't stop her inevitable fate. HAHAHA HAHAHA!" James had cackled in the distance
