The Dragon Carnival that started was just as I had expected, quite intense.
Even though the dragons were considered small-sized, from my point of view, they were huge, and the way they clashed with each other was quite powerful, and their flashy Breath attacks made me sweat.
There were several dragons that stood out to me, but the one that caught my attention was the Nidhogg, the Special Individual Wyvern like Frea-san.
In the first place, Wyverns that have gone through an enormous amount of battles are the ones that evolve into Nidhoggs, so having evolved into one is proof of their vast battle experience, but it was still amazing to see it overwhelm a dragon that was many times larger than itself.
Lilia, who was standing next to me, was also very excited, as I could feel her excitement with each battle.
Her innocent expression was very cute.
In the meantime, the battle progressed and the four best dragons had been decided.
The first dragon was the one that had caught my attention, Nidhogg, who had literally kicked the crap out of all the other dragons with their ferocious and wild fighting style.
In terms of simple fighting ability, I think theyre the best of all the winners.
They basically dont attack from a distance, a power type that engages in close combat and knocking down their opponents with their tremendous physical strength.
The second dragon was the Tempest Dragon, which Lilia-san had been cheering for.
Come to think of it, wasnt the model that Luna-san destroyed and Lilia-san got mad about depicting a Tempest Dragon Incidentally, its an interesting coincidence that the MMO I played before also had a dragon of the same name.
The Tempest Dragon feels like an all-rounder, excelling in both melee and ranged battles, and it was able to use a variety of magic such as lightning and wind to win without any trouble.
The third dragon, which I felt a connection with, was the Gun Rock Dragon.
The Gun Rock Dragons impressive defensive capabilities…… combined with the fact that it was the largest of the four remaining dragons, made them a moving fortress.
The fourth and final dragon was a young Black Dragon…… They were apparently the same species as Fafnir-san, and they were the coolest-looking dragon Ive ever seen.
They focus on long-range attacks like black tornadoes and wind slashes, and many dragons had fallen without even being able to get close to them.
[……What do you think, Lilia-san In my opinion, I feel like the Nidhogg is quite strong.]
[Lets see, I think that would be a good guess as they possess extremely high combat experience and ability.
However, from what Ive seen so far, they dont have any strong long-range attacks, which is a point of concern.]
[I see, they would be at a disadvantage when their opponent is at a distance.
By the way, who do you predict will win, Lilia-san]
[I think it really would be the Tempest Dragon.
I said this not just because its my personal favorite, but I think it has the best balance of melee and range, and can carry the battle to its disadvantage.
However…… If it ends up fighting the Gun Rock Dragon, from what Ive seen so far, its going to be difficult for them to get past the Gun Rock Dragons defense, so it would depend on the match-ups.]
It seems like even Lilia-san, who knows a lot about dragons, cant say for sure who will win.
I guess from here on, it would depend on their match compatibility.
Theres the melee-oriented Nidhogg, the versatile but underpowered Tempest Dragon, the defensive Gun Rock Dragon, and the range-oriented Black Dragon…… The combination seemed to be decided by lottery, and a little while later, the match-ups were decided.
From here on out, it looks like one battle would be going on at a time, and the first match would be Nidhogg VS Black Dragon…… I guess its a clash between the melee-oriented and the range-oriented huh
[Its a battle where each fighters strong point and weakness is pretty clear, isnt it]
[Yes, if they can get close enough, Nidhogg will win, while the key for the Black Dragons victory will be to keep Nidhogg away.]
As Lilia-san and I were talking like this, I suddenly felt complex emotions from the Sympathy Magic, so I turned my gaze towards him and called out.
[……Fafnir-san Whats the matter]
I was worried that he wouldnt be able to hear me because of the distance between us, but he seemed to have heard me, as in his dragon form, Fafnir-san looked back at me and spoke.
“……No, I understood it.
Scattering away full-power tornadoes I released with “a roar”, or how my full-power Breath couldnt even compete with just a mere fireball…… It was just her thats strange…… However, looking at this match-up, I couldnt help but feel my trauma resurfacing……”
“……Hopefully, that young ones pride wont be smashed to pieces……”
……Thinking that something must have happened, I moved my gaze and looked at Frea-san, who had her arms crossed, and guessed what happened.
Ahh, I see…… Fafnir-san had fought Frea-san in the past, and it was quite the traumatic experience for him.
