In Chapter 83, we see Apollo wield the power of light itself while Leonidas braces himself with a hoplite-style advance with the Shield of Truth.
Record of Ragnarok Chapter 83 Raw Scans Show A Stunning Finish With Questions About the 10th Round
Apollo won, and Leonidas was defeated in 9 minutes and 30 seconds. Not the shortest match perhaps, when compared to Adam vs. Zeus for instance, but in a battle told largely over 6 chapters, this felt like it was over all too quickly.
However, Apollo couldn’t finish Leonidas off solely with his arrows of light with Artemis’ help. Even an attack as fast as light was deflected by Leonidas’ combat instinct and his shield. But Leo’s wounds got the better of him once he went in for the charge, transforming his shield into that resembling a more traditional piece of Spartan gear and going on the charge. Apollo, despite having the arrow deflected and ruining one of his arms, had Artemis assemble a giant bow where he fired himself as a projectile, a “silver arrow” allowing him to pierce Leo’s shield and his abdomen.
This was the killing blow, but Leo managed to land one last punch in Apollo’s face. But it turned out Apollo respected his opponent in the end, and perhaps all along, while Leo embraced that, content knowing he was the greatest Spartan to have ever lived. This leaves the remaining confirmed contestants:
Human Fighters (Einherjar) Remaining in Record of Ragnarok
- Grigori Rasputin
- Michel Nostradamus
- Sakata Kintoki
- Simo Häyhä
- Soji Okita
God Fighters Remaining in Record of Ragnarok
- Susano’o no Mikoto
The conspicuous addition of a 5th human suggests there could be a tie-breaker at the end, or something resembling the Gigantomachy which was alluded to once again in Chapter 83. We shall see whether either side is willing to accept the outcome of this tourney, but at this point, it’s clear the gods are no longer scoffing at their opponents, even if they’re now at a 5-4 lead.
