This is the third episode of Hardcore Leveling Warrior.


The Episode begins with a one year flashback where Hardcore Leveling Warrior saves a Level 30 Sora from Nightmare during The Very First War and tells her to get stronger.

Back in the present, Sora and Rim are engaged in combat and Guan Yu retrieves his weapon from Zhou Cang's Bag whilst she chastises him. Guan Yu sends a beam from his weapon at Hardcore Leveling Warrior but it cuts Rim in half and destroys the nearby buildings.

He tries to attack Hardcore Leveling Warrior in close range but the attack is blocked by Heart Heater using a clip board. As Guan Yu prepares to use 100% of his power, the group escapes in Heart Heater's dragon's mouth.

The Dragon drops them off in Dragon Mountain, where they all enter a hut.

Once they enter the hut, Hardcore Leveling Warrior and Sora meet Heart Heater's boss, who asks Hardcore Leveling Warrior to help him Level up.

    Zhou cang handing Guan Yu his spear (From a Qing Dynasty edition of The Romance of the Three Kingdoms)

  • Sora and Guan Yu made their first appearances in Episode 2, but their names were revealed in this episode.
  • Guan Yu is based on Guan Yu, one of China's best known historical figures throughout East Asia. Guan Yu's true life stories have largely given way to fictionalised ones, most of which are found in the 14th-century historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms or passed down the generations, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been lionised. Guan Yu is respected as an epitome of loyalty and righteousness. He is portrayed as having a red face, similar to General Guan Yu in the series.
  • Zhou Cang is based on the fictional character from from the 14th-century Chinese historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Zhou Cang. In the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel, Zhou Cang is bearded male and swears an oath of allegiance to Guan Yu and is appointed as Guan Yu's weapon bearer. An image of Zhou Cang handing Guan Yu his spear can be seen on the right.
  • Heart Heater saying "I will make you an offer you can't refuse" may have been a homage to the famous line said by Vito Corleone in The Godfather.

Translation Notes & Errors

  • Sora calls Hardcore Leveling Warrior "열렙전사님" which means "Hardcore Leveling Warrior Nim". LINE Webtoon translates this as "Mr. Hardcore Leveling Warrior".
