Hiroichi was covered in mud from head to toe and suffered some injuries as well.
It was incredibly miraculous that he even managed to escape with his life, so he couldn’t care less about his appearance.
The disciples, however, nearly fainted from shock when they saw the state Hiroichi was in. After all, Hiroichi was the president of Thousand Crane Shrine, so he was a highly-respected individual as well. Even so, he looked no different from a beggar on the streets in that disheveled look.
Jagoan called out to the disciples standing in the courtyard, “This old man here is the deity you guys worship. Now, allow me to show you all what he really is!”
The disciples simply stared at him in shock and disbelief. They couldn’t believe that the deity they had been worshipping all this while turned out to be a skinny, elderly man.
“I told you, I hold ultimate power here. Even if you destroy the shrine, you cannot kill me as long as we are on this mountain.” Toyotomi then cocked his head back and shouted, “By the energy of heaven and earth and the blood of all mortals, come back to life!”
A loud rumbling noise rang out in the background as dark clouds shrouded the peak of the mountain.
The next thing they knew, a strong suction force began sucking the blood out of the dead disciples’ bodies.
The blood then gathered above the sculpture before splashing down on it.
A second later, the sculpture was covered in cracks all over. The pieces of the sculpture then started falling off along with the mud, revealing a corpse with monstrous-looking teeth and black scales that covered its entire body.
The disciples were shocked to find out that the sculpture they had been worshipping actually contained a monster’s body inside.
“Whoa! Is this Toyotomi’s physical body? It sure looks ugly!” Jagoan exclaimed with disgust written all over his face.
“I have never seen something this hideous my entire life!” Fandor, too, was shocked to the core.
“I’m guessing his mother was with some kind of monster or something. How else would he turn out like this?” Jagoan commented.
Naturally, Toyotomi did not take kindly to his statement. He shot Jagoan a vicious glare in response but didn’t attack him or anything.
The disciples screamed in fear as they backed away. None of them expected a hideous body like that to be inside that majestic sculpture.
As Toyotomi shook his body, a cloud of black smoke came out of him and entered the monstrous-looking physical body.
The elderly man’s body collapsed immediately after the black smoke left it and erupted into flames a few moments later.
“I can’t believe you made me activate my physical body ahead of schedule! I’ll kill you!” Toyotomi shouted in a voice that resonated throughout the area like a bell.
“Now I see why you wanted my physical body! You look so freaking ugly! I’ve never seen someone this ugly in my entire life! I doubt you’d even have a single disciple if you recruited them looking like this!” Jagoan said while pretending to retch in disgust.
“You b*stard! I’ll kill you!”
Toyotomi’s eyes went wide as the area around them was shrouded in darkness. He then unleashed his spiritual sense in Jagoan’s direction in an attempt to destroy his mental energy and kill his soul within his body.
Toyotomi knew that his physical body looked ugly, but hearing Jagoan and Jagoan insult his appearance angered him to the core.
“Hmph! Bring it on!” Jagoan retorted defiantly.
A dragon’s roar echoed around them as his body was covered in golden scales.
Jagoan levitated into the air while the faint image of a golden dragon appeared behind him.
There was a huge contrast between Jagoan’s golden scales and Toyotomi’s black scales.
Visually, Jagoan’s shiny, golden scales looked majestic and grand.
Toyotomi’s black scales, on the other hand, looked terrifying.
