FFF-Class Trashero - Chapter 131
Chapter 131 – Demon Lord Pedonar
I flew straight to the Demon Lord’s domain, not needing either a compass or a map as a 3D map of this world was imprinted in my head. Unfortunately, I couldn’t wait for Green Cake to grow up. I didn’t have time to lazily accumulate Reputation and Achievements. There was nothing to be done, but I couldn’t stand aside knowing that the Earth was in danger.
Excitement: Aren’t you too hurried?
Miss Trainee. I’ll give you an example. You went on a trip abroad but saw the news that there was a strong earthquake or typhoon in your country. Worried about your parents, you call home, but your parents don’t answer. What would you do if you were me, Miss Trainee?
Embarrassment: I just want to spend some more time with you, Kang Han Soo. If I meet a Hero like Sieg again, I will go bald…
The bald head of a girl with a pretty appearance…
Because of her statement, I began to suspect if she was a girl at all. Mister Trainee?
I flew for a long time listening to the miss trainee’s nagging but reached the Demon Lord’s stronghold without obstacles. I also slipped past the demon army that trampled the central continent in play 8. This wasn’t modern Earth. There were Wyverns to fly on, but air routes weren’t particularly common. Therefore, their air defense was weak.
I landed on the terrace where the Demon Lord once had fun with the Elven Queen. It would be possible to jump from above, breaking through the roof, but this time I needed to ask the Demon Lord something, so I decided to act more politely. However, I hadn’t changed my mind about destroying it.
“You have an excellent body, Demon Lord.”
“Ahem. These are the basics…”
“Ah! Such elastic muscles. My husband is no match for you. Faster, Demon Lord. I am your prisoner, so I will not complain if you are rude to me.”
As I expected, I heard the voices of the demon and the elf.
“Queen of Elfheim, are you sorry for the Elven King?”
”What are you talking about? I’m just a weak hostage. And I humbly obey you so that you treat me a little better. The king praying for the welfare of his wife will surely understand.”
“Aren’t you too active for a captive?”
“That’s a misunderstanding. I see how you yearn to take possession of the poor body of the captive, and I have no choice but to obey. Huhu!”
I knocked on the window. I didn’t want to interfere with the sweet conversation between the Demon Lord and the elf, but my hand reached by itself for the window after listening to their conversation.
“Queen. A guest came to us.”
”Yes. Appearing to the Demon Lord in broad daylight, when he punishes his captive…what an uneducated and rude guest.”
Suddenly becoming an uneducated and rude Hero, I entered through the window.
“Sorry to interfere.”
There was only a throne in the spacious hall. Like doves, the demon and an elf sat together: the Demon Lord Pedonar and the wife of the Elf King. No matter how you looked, they didn’t look like a vile demon and a pitiful prisoner. The Queen, naked every time I saw her, this time being no exception, was calm. It seemed that she didn’t care at all that a member of the opposite sex could see her without clothes. The Demon Lord, however, had common sense.
Clearing his throat in embarrassment, the Demon Lord Pedonar handed his robe to the Elven King’s wife. And getting up from the throne, calmly asked me:
“Are you a hero of this time?”
“Yes, I am, Demon Lord. Let’s do without introductions. You may not remember me, but I know you very well. And…this Hero’s level is high, so you don’t need time to get used to it?”
“…Do you know a little about demon politics? Have you gone through regression yet?”
I answered him with a grim smile. As expected, the Demon Lord Pedonar was no fool. He immediately knew about the regression.
“But Hero. Even so, aren’t you in too much of a hurry? It seems like half a month has passed since your call?”
”Well, I’m pretty outstanding.”
“Is that so…sorry. With your growth, if you raised your level for another 500 years, you would be a good opponent.”
He didn’t seem to be joking, as his skills had improved.
Race: First Demon
Specialization: Demon Lord (Hero → Level ↓)
Skills: Dark Energy Z, Immunity Z, Swordsmanship Z, Immortality Z, Resilience Z …
This situation was similar to the fifth playthrough when I had a high level. But it seemed that this wasn’t the limit of the Demon Lord’s skill rank. He was even stronger than in play 5. If I were stronger than I was now, would the Demon Lord also become stronger? Did he have no limit at all? Then it didn’t matter how much stronger I were to get.
“Hero. I have a proposal for you.”
“Yes, an offer. You went through a regression, so you think you know well about this world, but your knowledge is superficial. I will tell you about a new hunting place. How about getting stronger and then challenging me again?”
The Demon Lord wanted the Hero’s level to be higher: this was demon politics. Because of his deception and flattery, I smiled.
“Demon Lord. You miscalculated a little if you thought I came back because I lost on the last adventure. Somehow I was even able to defeat Scioscia.”
“Oh! So you’re my daughter’s boyfriend.”
“And how did you come to this conclusion?”
“Haha! Struggle brings men and women closer together. I see. Since you’re Scioscia’s boyfriend, let’s talk a little more. Hero. Raise your level and come to me in 100 years. Then I promise that I will arrange a wedding for you with Scioscia. What do you think?”
…To marry this cowardly demoness?
“Why do you refuse? There is no girl in this world more charming and lovely than Scioscia!”
“Why are you asking me to level up?” I answered a question with a question. Frowning, the Demon Lord Pedonar pointed to the sky and said.
“To escape from this world.”
The penalty for the Demon Lord’s specialization was that his level became the same as that of the Hero. And the stronger the Hero, the stronger the Demon Lord. These were the laws of this world. The fantasy world could only exist when there was a Hero and a Demon Lord in it. If one of them disappeared, then this mirage would also disappear. For the Demon Lord to escape from this world, no matter how ironic it may sound, he needed the Hero to have a high level.
If there was strength, would it be possible to try to escape? Naturally, all this wouldn’t work out just in one go. As if making a hole with a spoon in the wall of a prison, every time the strength increased, he could gradually change the laws of this world to be advantageous to himself.
”Is that possible?”
“Of course, Hero. I have already succeeded once. The hero, whose personality didn’t match the wishes of the God of the fantasy world, was released.”
Had this Demon Lord done such a great deed? I developed an interest and respect for him.
“Hero. I can only tell you this. If you want to know something else, then come after you become stronger. Then I’ll arrange a wedding for you and Scioscia and tell you everything you want to know.”
“Aren’t fathers, on the contrary, particularly eager to give their daughters in marriage?”
Most of the noblemen I remember were like that. The Demon Lord replied, “A long time ago, I was like that too. But recently, I want to see the grandchildren of my lovely daughter. I want to hear from my grandchildren that their grandfather is the best.”
Such a simple dream didn’t suit someone called a Demon Lord.
”If you want, you can skip the wedding ceremony. The result is what matters. Scioscia is now active in the northern continent under the pseudonym of the Marquise Sorceress. As far as I know, the best time to conceive is in the morning, so if you use my advice, you will be successful.”
”Thank you, but this is unnecessary.”
I had gotten all the information I needed. The Demon Lord had information such as the truth about the history of this world, but I wasn’t interested in that. All that mattered to me was returning. I was not very interested in the history of the Earth, so the history of the Fantasy world was all the more useless for me. Now, only the graduation remained.
I summoned the Holy Sword Nuclyon, and the Demon Lord’s face immediately grew interested.
“This is the first time I’ve seen such a sword. Where did you get it?”
“I see…I got important information. And this is my return gift; I grant you the title of Demon Lord. When you get rid of the Hero’s harness, it will be of immense help to you.”
“I already have it.”
With this, I opened the Black Box wide.
Race: Natural Human
Specialization: Demon Lord (Hero → Level ↓)

Condition: Magic Sword
The skills I had raised this time and earlier had come together. However, the skills that reached the MAX rank didn’t grow anymore. It was a pity, but someday I would confront the God of the fantasy world, and then I would have to get rid of all this. If one were to think so, was it not so bad?
Appeasement S → Appeasement SS
The Demon Lord Pedonar immediately noticed.
“Ho! So you’re already qualified for the Demon Lord? Good! It seems that the Demon Lord from another world, who allowed the Hero to do this, had similar thoughts. Let’s move on to the next stage.”
“The next stage?”
What was it?
“You will know when you defeat me.”
I was tired of turning the Black Box on and off every 9 seconds. I decided to finish quickly and return to Earth. I didn’t blindly challenge the Demon Lord; I knew what to do.
Level 2829 → Level 900
Experience points turned into a strength. The blade of the Holy Sword of Nuclyon burst forth with a green flame.
The Demon Lord’s level plummeted. The amount of Dark Energy that surrounded his body also decreased. The same thing happened with other skills.
Race: First Demon
Specialization: Demon Lord (Hero → Level ↓)
Skills: Dark Energy SSS, Immunity SSS, Swordsmanship SS, Immortality SS, Resilience SS …
And then, I swung the Holy Sword. The Demon Lord Pedonar didn’t dodge the attack. Not only did he not evade, but he pushed the Elven King’s wife away so as not to involve her. And he received all the power of the Hero.
However, he couldn’t stand a second.
And not only the Demon Lord. The Demon Lord’s fortress, which was large enough to house an army of hundreds of thousands of demons, was shattered into pieces. Numerous demons, a naked elf, all the buildings, pets of the Demon Lord, cute slimes…
Everything had been swept away, without exception.
Bitterness: Kang Han Soo. It seems to me that the Demon Lord was incredibly cool when he pushed the Elven Queen away?
Really? Miss Trainee, your preferences are strange. I just felt that he was extremely stupid.
Dear Hero, was your adventure fun?
Apart from when I got a 50 hit combo from my dear companion, it was fun.
The path of a real hero is really hard. But after finding the countless bonds that inspired you, you didn’t lose hope and continued to believe. You have known friendship and love, and after growing up together, you finally defeated the evil Demon Lord. Congratulations!

Seeing my grades, I was shocked.
“Are you kidding me now?! Show yourself, conductor!”
