The 3 of them cheered when they were selected as they went to get on Greenie's back.
The rest of them who weren't selected had envious expressions as they watched Greenie fly off with Yue Zhong and his team.
Greenie's speed could exceed the sound barrier, reaching Mach 1.2 which was even quicker than the Type 3 Lightning. Zhao Tian Gang and the rest were all Evolvers, but Greenie held back, in order not to injure them. Even so, it was still fast, and they reached the skies above Yokosuka Base in a matter of minutes.
Yue Zhong looked down from his position, and saw the zombies and Mutant Beasts already engaged in an all out slaughter.
Ordinary zombies were not a match for the Mutant Beasts and sea warriors. They were torn and ripped into pieces when they clashed, and the zombies were at a disadvantage.
The 8 Type 4 behemoths were like mystical beasts right out of myths and legends, squashing large number of zombies in their path. With every casual step, they would stomp at least a few dozens of zombies. It was even more gruesome than the Godzilla of Japanese film fame.
Yue Zhong looked at the 8 monstrous Type 4 Mutant Beasts and felt a headache. They had incredibly tough flesh and immense strength, coupled with gigantic bodies. This made their bodies practically impervious to even rockets.
If there were a barrage of rockets and missiles launched at the same time, then there was a possibility of blasting them to oblivion. However, even Type 2 Mutant Beasts had their own innate abilities, it would be wishful thinking to hope that the Type 4 Mutants Beasts would lack any, or not employ their abilities. If they did use their abilities, Yue Zhong guessed that not even rockets could damage them.
If there were any weak points of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, it would be that their speed wasn't fast enough. Compared to the Flame Bird that had a speed of Mach 2, the speed of these 8 Type 4 Mutant Beasts was pathetic. Even Yue Zhong's movement was many times faster.
After all, they belonged to the sea. On land, their speed would suffer.
As the countless Mutant Beasts and sea warriors slaughtered the zombies, a number of Evolved S-Types suddenly launched an assault.
One tank-like L4 smashed out with a powerful fist, shattering the skull of a Type 2 Mutant Beast. The might of an L4 was not to be taken lightly, as it was comparable to the peak of Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
The speed of the S4s also exceeded that of a Type 2 Lightning. They became fast shadows that weaved in and out of the battlefield, slashing the throats of the sea warriors.
In the chaos, there were still the Devourers, whose strength far surpassed the S4s, and their speed surpassing the L4s. They could easily crush a sea warrior in their jaws, dismembering the bodies with their claws.
With 6 L4s leading the charge, countless sea warriors and weaker Mutant Beasts were ripped apart. 7 to 8 huge Type 2 Mutant Beasts had their skulls utterly crushed by the L4s. As the sea warriors and Mutant Beasts were taken out, the zombie horde surged forwards again, consuming all that was on the ground.
Swallowing the meat of those sea warriors and Mutant Beasts, many ordinary zombies began to evolve, their bones strengthening, their flesh hardening. Some even evolved to possessing claws and powerful thighs and legs.
On the other side, the Mutant Beasts were also evolving, having consumed such a large number of zombies. The virus within the zombies was also something vital to their evolution. However, the majority that evolved were low-level beasts. The higher level ones needed a larger volume to evolve.
As Yue Zhong watched both sides battle it out, he thought: "No matter the outcome of this battle, the victor would gain an unshakeable position here. Seems like Japan is in trouble."
The victor of this all-out clash would reap the corpses and flesh of the opponent. Consuming those would grant the victor more opportunities to evolve. Should there be over a thousand L4s evolved within the Kanagawa Prefecture, it was enough to sweep the entire Japan region.
Even someone as strong as Yue Zhong could only defeat a dozen or so L4s, facing a hundred at one time would force him to retreat. He would have to find other means, there was no way he could handle a frontal assault.
"Ah! What is that? Mermaid?" Yue Zhong looked down, and suddenly saw something strange.
Within the group of sea warriors, there was another group of fish-heads that were over 8m long, and their bodies full of rippling muscles, there was a group of top half-human, bottom half-fishes, the males were handsome, the females exceptionally beautiful. At their feet, or where there feet would be, there were waves flowing, making it seem as though these mermaids were riding the waves.
"Level 73 Strange Beast: Killer Whale Fighters. Powerful warriors of the Sea Clan."
"Mermen. Biological lifeforms with high intelligence."
"What's going on? Could they really be similar to us humans, with intelligence?" Yue Zhong's mood sunk further.
After the world had changed, Yue Zhong had used his Eyes of Perception to get information even on Type 5 Mutant Beasts. The only times when he could not get the levels were on ordinary beasts that did not mutate or other humans. The information on these mermaids and mermen were actually withheld from Yue Zhong's Eyes of Perception, and he was strongly suspicious.
At the same time, a huge sense of pressure weighed down on Yue Zhong. The number of humans were decreasing since the apocalypse, after all, they had only been able to survive so far in the midst of zombies and Mutant Beasts was because of their advantage in intelligence. If a high-intelligence being evolved among the zombies or Mutant Beasts, then they would definitely pose a greater danger to humanity. Not to mention an entire race of intelligent beings.
It was unclear how the merpeople could control the masses of sea warriors on top of the Mutant Beasts. This strength caused one to be fearful.
Yue Zhong was a top-level expert that could control 3 Type 3 Mutant Beasts, but the horde that was attacking the Yokosuka Base had over hundreds of them, and 8 of those seemingly invincible Type 4 Mutant Beasts. Compared to them, Yue Zhong's might was pitifully weak.
Yue Zhong pointed to one Type 3 Mutant Sea Snake in the battlefield and said: "Go kill that fellow."
As Greenie flapped its wings, the wind gathered around it, before it shot towards the Type 3 Sea Snake like a sharp sword. Its sharp claws pierced the head of the Type 3 Sea Snake and grabbed it as it flew into the sky.
With the additional weight of over a few tonnes, Greenie's speed slowed down substantially. However, it was still more than enough as by the time the low level Mutant Beasts around reacted, Greenie was gone.
Greenie dragged the huge Sea Snake before it landed on a tall building.
Yue Zhong then swiftly removed the brain, blood essence and blood, throwing the nuclei to Greenie to swallow. He then leaped back onto its back and they continued to search for opportunities to hunt other Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
The Type 3 Mutant Beasts were not easy to hunt and kill, and as Yue Zhong commanded Greenie to soar above the battlefield, they would usually look for the stranded Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes. They were Greenie's natural prey, and was easier to handle as compared to others.
Under Yue Zhong's lead, Greenie flew about and they managed to hunt down another 2 more Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes.
The Type 3 Mutant Beasts were still a high-ranking beast among the horde, and after Greenie had killed 3, the rest of the Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes quickly gathered towards the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
The Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake chased Greenie, enraged, as it dragged that body of over 200m with it.
As it moved, the Mutant Beasts, zombies and even abandoned vehicles that were in its path was entirely obliterated by its humongous body. The smaller Mutant Beasts quickly got out of its way, making a path for it.
"Towards there!" Yue Zhong saw the enraged Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, and pointed to a direction of the zombie horde.
Greenie flapped its wings and flew towards the where Yue Zhong had directed.
Led by Greenie, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake slithered all the way towards the huge zombie army.
6 L4s immediately charged up to the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake when they saw it approach, and punched out viciously.
This time, the powerful fists that could destroy a Type 2 Mutant Beast's head in a blow was ineffective, as the scales of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake retracted slightly, before it struck out with its body, and the L4s to be knocked back.
The blows of the L4s still caused the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake to feel some pain, and it stared at one L4, opening its huge jaws to swallow it.
The moment the L4 was gobbled up, dozens of S4s charged up the body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake like ants, and they used their incredibly sharp claws to tear off the scales on the Sea Snake.
Although the S4s did not have the strength of the L4s, nor the defences, they had extremely sharp claws for weapons, which could pierce even the tough scales of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
