Super Transformation

 

I wanted an explanation for why it suddenly went to Lv 3, but the only thing I knew was how to use the [Super Transformation Lv 3] that had been planted into my brain.
Its effects are as follows:

– Can transform into what is imagined Lv X times per day (3 times for Lv 3)

– Lv 1 Effect: Can transform into something that exists

– Lv 2 Effect: Can partially mimic the abilities of what has been transformed into

– Lv 3 Effect: Once every 72 hours, even if you die, the transformation will cancel and you will revive

Magical power is consumed during the transformation. I can either turn it off when I want, or when my magical power depletes.
The amount of magical power consumed seems to be quite huge if I turn into something that’s really different in appearance. And my abilities would be limited in the transformation.
I don’t know what the Lv 4 effect would be, but the ones I already have are crazy. I can transform into something so long as it exists huh? As expected of a Cheat Skill. And I can revive once every three days too… Well, depending on the situation, it could just be an instant death after reviving.
Like if I was in lava or something.

[Was that the [Announcement] just now? It gave the same feeling as our [Menu].]  
“Eh, could everyone hear that just now?”
[No, I was just able to observe it a little there. So, what kind of skill did you get?]  

I was troubled over whether or not I should tell him or if I should keep it as a trump card. At any rate, I guess it’s fine to tell him its name?
I think it’d be better if I didn’t say it since Haku-san’s here as well, but it’s [Father]’s request. It feels like it’d turn into a problem if I didn’t answer him. He said that I was a Hero right in front of Haku-san, so that was exposed already. It might make it seem like I’m planning on rebelling or something if I don’t answer…
Alright, let’s answer.

“I got that freebie from you, so I’ll tell you the skill’s name. It’s [Super Transformation].”
[[Super Transformation] huh? You got a pretty interesting skill.]  

Hmm? Doesn’t it feel like he knows what it does?

[In the past, someone even got up to [Super Transformation Lv 7] if I recall? Perfectly copying the enemy’s shape and abilities, they were able to use their opponent’s abilities along with their own. It got pretty amazing.]  

The heck? Wouldn’t that be invincible?

“Oh? I think I dealt with that person by sending five hundred against them?”
[Yeah, Haku played a big role in it back then.]  

Ah, so they were defeated by numbers huh. Right, it’s not like I could give it out to others or anything.
… Ah, there does appear to be skills that can be shared with others though.

“So Kehma-san was a God’s Vanguard…? I knew that he was a person from another world, but still…”
“Well, I’m just an everyday Hero that doesn’t intend to destroy dungeons or anything like that. I haven’t even had a Cheat Skill until now. I don’t even think of myself as a God’s Vanguard.”
“Hmm. In that case, it’s alright—so, that skill, would you please tell me more about it in detail? You will, won’t you? To be exact, show be an example of you transforming.”

Okay~, order received~.

“The number of times that I can transform is limited, so I can’t keep doing it forever… What do you want me to transform to?”
“Let’s see… can you transform into Rokuko-can?”

… Can I? Let’s give it a shot.
I pictured Rokuko in my mind and said [Super Transformation]. I can activate the skill without saying it, but it’s probably better for me to say something given where I am.
Uoh, my field of view dropped… Oh, so this is Rokuko’s eye level.

“Ooh, he really looks the same as me!”
“So I look like Rokuko now? I’m still wearing my jersey, so it looks like it doesn’t affect clothing… Ah, my voice changed too.”

The clothes I’ve been wearing are too big for me now. Oi.

“You know that you shouldn’t look under those clothes, right? Right!?”
“… I wasn’t thinking about it at all.”
“You know that I’ll hit you if you touch your body, right?”
“Well, I’m just curious about whether or not it can reproduce places I’ve never seen before. Rokuko, do you have any scratches or something that I don’t know about?”
“Nope. I don’t have any scratches or stuff like that that Kehma doesn’t know about.”
“Ah—I was surprised since there’s another Rokuko-chan, but wait! I can’t ignore that statement!”

That’s a false accusation though.
I undid the transformation.

“… I make sure to take care of Rokuko so that she doesn’t get even a single scratch. You could even use lie detection magic or magic tool if you like.”
“Are you telling the truth?”
“I am.”
“… It appears that you really are telling the truth.”

Oh. It looks like she really did invoke some lie detecting magic. But it’s a good thing that people can prove their innocence so quickly with stuff like that. They just have to actually be innocent.

“I’ll take this chance ask you. You have no intention of bringing harm to Rokuko-chan, correct?”
“Correct! I swear to god.”
[Ahahaha! Swearing to god right in front of me! Good, good!]  

[Father] suddenly broke into laughter.
Ah, right. God is the one that sends the Heroes. He’s the enemy. Rather, wasn’t there also the theory that [Father] is also a god? At any rate, [Father] is laughing pretty hard.

“Understood… By the way, could you transform into Rokuko-chan one more time? I’d like to hear two Rokuko-chans say, ‘I love Onee-sama’.”
“Ah, sorry, but I have a limited number of transformations, so maybe next time.”
“Oh? That’s unfortunate… Then, could you turn into this envelope? If you can, what’s inside of it.”

Haku-san showed me an envelope… Hohoh, this will easily verify a few things.
First, can I transform into inanimate objects?
Second, can I transform into something that I haven’t seen directly and don’t already know?
Third, can I reproduce the contents of the letter?
… As expected of Haku-san. Being able to get all of that from a single transformation.
Well, alright. Thinking about the insides of the envelope, I used [Super Transformation].

“… [Super Transformation].”

My body transformed easily… Hmm, somehow, it looks like I just turned into the envelope. As expected, picturing something that I don’t know about in my head isn’t enough to use to transform.
I fell to the floor. Seeing the Master Room like this is kind of new… Ah, Haku-san walked closer. I saw white under her skirt. Even the knee socks in her long skirt is nice… ah. She picked me up. Maybe she’s trying to take a closer look?

“Hoh. It even reproduced the destination address that I didn’t show you. However, it looks like the contents of the envelope weren’t reproduced? Maybe what’s necessary is seeing it directly… Maybe I should try tearing it a little? I’m curious about how much damage there will be when he switched back.”

Higii!? Stop!? Ah, I can’t talk. Hey, don’t rip me! Seriously, doooon’t! I’d revive even if I die with the Lv 3 effect but really, stooop!
With a pop, I released the transformation and turned back into a human. In Haku-san’s hands.

“Kyah! Please don’t turn back so suddenly, Kehma-san—oh?”
“Uoooh! … Phew, I’m back. Man, that was close. Thought I was going to die…”
“Kehma!? C-clothes, put on clothes—!”

Eh?
I saw my clothes.
They were on the floor.
… Aah, so that’s it. When I turned into an envelope, my clothes simple fell to the ground.
In other words, I’m being held princess-style by Haku-san… in the nude.

“Kyaaaa—!? Haku-san’s a pervert—!!”
“That’s rude. Calling someone a pervert… If anything, Kehma-san is the pervert. You’re naked, after all.”
“You’re too calm! Scary!”
“I’m used to seeing adventurer corpses in the nude. It’s alright, it’s cute.”

Stop it! That manner of talking is wounding me!

“Ah, but Rokuko-chan shouldn’t look at something so foul, alright?”
“Eh? Y-yesh! Sorry, Haku Ane-sama! I-I didn’t see anything, Kehma! Don’t worry!”
“Y-yeah…”

… With that, I put my clothes back on with slightly teary eyes.
Furthermore, [Father] laughed so hard he had to hold his sides.
*Sniff*
I can’t take anymore…

  1. name moniker says:

    for some reason it feels like kehma is going to die a lot? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  2. Mikan says:

    and here I was thinking of something like super sentai.

  3. sinner says:

    That lv 3 skill tho, it’s like son wukong skill from 7k, if he’ll revived and summon his double and if he died along with yuri or simmiliar hero it would be really bothersome

  4. lazy op mc lover says:

    Spoiler!!!

    Haku has him transform into a letter then tries to rip him open.

  5. Lemeres says:

    it eats more power if you turn into something physically different?
    …kehma exists. if he turned into himself, would it be low mana cost? could he just do that to keep on the sweet respawn power 24/7?

    • Dark says:

      Clever, but take that one step further – continuous if limited access to the abilities of any humanoid being. For example, he could ‘transform’ into an Antediluvian vampire. That, and he has literal barrels of mana potion.

      Without that level 2 effect it’s just a weaker knockoff of the saintess power.

      Huh. I wonder if what he absorbed here was a dungeon core’s ability to change forms at cost? The basic ability seems really similar.

      • Shylight says:

        Well, didn’t we get info just two chapters ago that Aidi has an ability to [Enhance] herself for a DP cost? So my first thought was an indestructible Kehma.

        • Wireath says:

          My thoughts exactly, could transform into her sword form to become indestructible.

          Though, I wonder what would happen if he tried to transform into [Father]; would he be able to make dungeon cores, then destroy them to get more cheats?

      • sodemas says:

        i see a fellow story teller player?~~
        also there are stronger creatures if you are gonna use fiction…

  6. Anonymous says:

    I thought he would want to turn into knee high socks or something.

    • moridain says:

      That is kind of like a teenage boy wanting to turn into boobs.

      He doesn’t want to BE boobs, he wants to FEEL boobs.

      • Raphalice says:

        Then with your statement, he would definitely want to be kneesocks as he would feel the glorious legs of a beautiful girl WITH HIS WHOLE BODY… or more LIKE WITH HIS WHOLE BEING!

        High probability it might hapen. As well as the scenario where he transforms to kneesocks, gets black to wear him to sleep. Falls asleep. Transformation duration finished/cancelled. Rokuko/Ichika enters room seeing Keima naked hugging Black’s Legs~

      • lmtuan says:

        You sure Keima doesn’t want to transform into knee socks, then let the girls wear him?

      • Barnaby says:

        No it would be more like a teenage boy wanting to be a bra.

    • Kettern says:

      But would that even be possible? I mean knee socks are two seperate things…

  7. Anonymous says:

    He can transform into something that exist.. but exist where ?
    For example, could he transform into the “One Punch Man”.. he “exist” in anime and manga after all..

  8. Barnaby says:

    Dagon was in the DP catalogue, does that count as [Existing]?

    If the body of what he transformed into remains even after he dies and revives back to his normal self, he could have a steady income of orihalcum. Though for that we’ll have to wait for him to test it.

    • Ziru says:

      Well, it’d still cost him a ludicrous amount of magical power to even attempt transforming into Dagon as it is so unlike his normal form.

      • Eric says:

        I wonder what the cost would be if he transformed into one of the outer gods.

        • Eric says:

          Then again an outer god’s true form cannot be grasped without going insane with the exception of maybe Nyarlarthotep (since he can change his form at will but then again most his other forms drive people insane…).

      • Barnaby says:

        Ahh, that’s true, huh… though now I wanna know how someone can increase their MP. I don’t think it’s hinted that his max MP improved with use. It seems that only skills have the concept of levels so I think there would be passive skills that increase that. Seeing as there are magic swords, there may be accessories made to store MP reserves too. Ahh but then those rings would break/fall of if he turned into something large.

        Ah, but seeing as he can (partially) mimic the abilities of what he turns into, what if he transforms into something that has a high MP regen rate and high max MP. Then he may be able to forcefully summon orihalcum golems and other monsters. well, that in itself would be too OP so I can see if the author avoids that direction. MP regen and capacity may not be counted as an ‘ability’ in the first place.

        Can’t wait to see what he does with it~

  9. Pepperkat says:

    Orichalcum sword.. + chain golems = ultimate deathtrap

  10. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap xD

  11. yttam50 says:

    Depending on if its physically different or conceptually then maybe he could transform into Cthulhu: Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn – Kehma’s ideal lifestyle.

  12. Mikan says:

    ” It’s alright, it’s cute”
    ooohh Haku thinks it is cute kehma that’s a chance right there.

  13. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Thank you kindly for the chapter!

  14. Oak says:

    Thanks for the chapter,
    He better never let Haku know he can revive every three days, or he will die every three days

  15. BijiKuda says:

    so kehma is actually a hero? I’ve actually forgotten when this is mentioned or explained, can anyone tell me?

    • Barnaby says:

      If you read the re-translation of the first chapter you find out that Kehma was Other world hero that was summoned by Rokuko in the 1,000 DP gacha (according to Haku, summoned heroes are worth 50,000,000,000 DP). From the conversation the ‘god’ as they called themselves, didn’t know who was summoning Kehma, just that someone ‘needed’ him. but because ‘god’ quickly found his lazy nature he didn’t give Kehma any skill other than translation and then parted while saying something like “I’ll give the important job to the next one.”

  16. Zeth says:

    lol, thank you!!!!!!!

  17. Philippe Spalla says:

    thanks for the chapter !!! XD

  18. Wireath says:

    Hmm, I wonder if they know about the revival ability, since they fought someone with the Lv.7 version before.

  19. KuRuuRuu says:

    What a cheat~~~
    But I wonder how long can he stay in that transformation state?
    Thank you for the chapter!!

  20. braboobssiere says:

    i wonder would he get the revive ability if he turned into saintess/feni (or anything that ca rebirth)?

    • Barnaby says:

      Hmm… as for the Saintess, that ability is also linked to that portable shrine that her escort was carrying. So if he mimicked he would either not respawn as for being out of range, not respawn for not being attuned to that shrine (if that’s even a thing) or suddenly wake up in the Churches capital.

      I believe that it wouldn’t stack because his HP would hit 0 thus fulfilling the condition of his [Super Transformation] so even if both of the revives activate, [Super Transformation] will automatically end after being revived.

  21. Uni says:

    Clever move kehma.
    Before someone screams pervert!! you scream first.

    thanks for the chapter.

  22. A random passerby says:

    Kehma finally became op huh…good job ur lazy hard work paid off

  23. D.O.G says:

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  24. Yomi El says:

    Thanks for the chapters~

    So Kehma was a Hero afterall! This just shows how OP Rokuko’s luck is~
    Kehma has gained an OP shapeshifting ability! Time to turn into Kneesocks~
    Kehma, the master of trolling has now become more Aku-like.

    Long ago in an another word, I, Kehma, the shape-shifting Master of trolling, unleashed an unspeakable evil(DAGON)! But a foolish Debt-ridden Hero wielding a magical sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal and flung him into My Dungeon, where my ways of trolling is law! Now the fool seeks to clear the dungeon, and crush the Dungeon Core that is Rokuko!

  25. Magnetic magnet says:

    Thanks for the chapter.

    The skills Kehma has been getting remind me more of an assassin than a hero. Blackout resistance and shapeshifting? You can be literally anyone and stalk the target without needing to sleep.

    [Father] is a god theory got more credibility. What if the heroes use similar system. They just don’t get all the dungeon stuff and their DP equivalent isn’t shown.

    Think about it. Dungeons draw mana from the ground and intruders to get DP. God sends a hero to get rid of the dungeons. By removing a dungeon core Kehma got a hero skill, despite not having got any before despite using his golems to kill stuff.

    Maybe [Father] and God are having some sort of a game. [Father] mentioned something about rules back in chapter 153. [Father] runs dungeons and God sends in heroes and saints. DP would fit here by keeping the score. Maybe it’s reading a little too much into it, but a lot of characters have been named after chess pieces. Keima (knight), there was Pawn at some point and the three first ranking cores are gold silver and bronze knights, something to do with shogi, I think? In addition [Father] is black or dark while the God is probably white due to sterotypes. Was it actually mentioned anywhere?

  26. Yiguzhu says:

    What if Kehma in truth is the main heroine of the story?
    Thanks for the chapter!

  27. Andy says:

    Kehma has finally joined Haku’s harem!

  28. justreadingnovels says:

    Did he just said sniff??

  29. K~ says:

    Kehma dodging bullets like matrix. I wish Rokuko just used his family name though.
