Legend Of The Mythological Genes Chapter 252
Transforming into a beast and using beast-form fist techniques?
This inspiration came suddenly without a warning. But the more he thought about it, the more reliable he felt it was.
The profoundness of the transformation came from being able to do things freely, changing nimbly, as well as adapting to all sorts of environments.
Since beast-form fist techniques came from mimicking the movements of wild beasts, why not just changed into a wild beast, broke free from the restrictions of the human body, and fully unleashed the abilities of a beast?
This might be impossible to others, but to Feng Lin, it was something he could accomplish with a single thought.
Feng Lin immediately put things into action and started experimenting.
Five Forms Fist's tiger form!
Feng Lin's body started to change. After many attempts, he was now capable of achieving the initial phase of turning into a ferocious tiger. There was the character '王' on his forehead, stripes on his body, and his claws were very sharp. He let out a roar. A tiger's roar rang throughout the entire mountain. It was a big and ferocious-looking tiger!
Tiger comes from wind. 
Feng Lin's body moved and strong gales blew.
Crouching Tiger Pouncing On Prey, Hungry Tiger Lifting Rock, Black Tiger Pushes Mountain…
He took on the form of a ferocious tiger, performing many stances with his claws. His strong prowess was unrivaled. His steel-like tail was like a whip, lashing out and causing rocks to crumble.
These ordinary moves displayed extremely great prowess in his hands that wouldn't lose out to any martial technique.
However, Feng Lin stopped his actions and looked at his claws in a daze, deep in thought.
Although he had performed the tiger form as a ferocious tiger, he still felt that there were many disharmonious parts. Some moves didn't seem to flow well, and it was hard to unleash their full potential.
Although the moves appeared strong, it was just the strength of the tiger's body and not the moves.
Feng Lin had immersed in martial arts for a very long time, and after giving it a careful thought, he understood the crux behind this.
Since the human body had restrictions, how could it be that the tiger's body had none?
Ferocious tigers basically had three moves in their attacks: pounce, lift, cut.
These three moves were simple and not extravagant, but they were also a ferocious tiger's three most powerful moves. The other moves wouldn't be as strong in comparison.
Therefore, when a human fought against a ferocious tiger, as long as they could dodge these first three moves, it wouldn't be as terrifying regardless of how fierce the tiger was.
This was also the essence in which Wu Song had beaten up the tiger. Dodge, dodge, dodge...
Feng Lin realized that his thoughts had gone off track.
Although the human body had restrictions, it was still more of an all-rounder compared to other animals. Humans could walk upright, crawl on the ground, swim in the water, and leap into the air…
In ancient cultivation manuals, the human body was called the Xiantian Dao Body. There was a reason why it was called so!
He had previously admired wild beasts for their ferocity but neglected the fact that Tiger Form Fist was something that the previous generations' experts had modified to be used by the human body. After extracting the essence of wild beasts' movements and eliminating the restrictions on the human body, they successfully created these fist techniques.
The beast-form fist techniques were still essentially a fist technique for humans!
Therefore, his idea of taking on the beast form to use the beast-form fist techniques wasn't wrong, but he would need to extract the essence from it. He didn't need to change everything. That would result in him being restrained by the wild beasts' bodies, and he would get little results despite devoting more efforts.
What was the profoundness behind a tiger's fights?
Feng Lin sat cross-legged and entered deep into thought.
The three moves a tiger had were the pounce, lift, and cut, with them each being body pounce, claw lift, and tail cut respectively…
His eyes gleamed as if he had understood something. His body went through a transformation. The muscles on his back bulged up, his hands became sharp claws, and a tail that was like a steel whip grew behind his butt.
Feng Lin stood up tall, having the body of a human but with the characteristics of a ferocious tiger. He performed the Tiger Form Fist once again, and this time around, he sensed that there was something very different about it.
The moves were a perfect complement with his body, having great harmony from the human body and the ferocity from the tiger form.
His sharp claws tore out, sending strong gales and releasing 'chi' sounds in the air. The surrounding mountain cliffs and ground were scratched with many marks left behind.
The wind was like blades, circling his body and repeatedly creating explosive sounds in the air.
Feng Lin leaped into the air and was like a human-shaped tiger.
Dragon, tiger, leopard, crane, snake...
The Tiger Form Fist was merely one of the five forms in the Five Forms Fist. After comprehending the Tiger Form Fist's true essence, Feng Lin then started to test out the other four forms: the dragon, leopard, crane, and snake forms. His body kept on changing non-stop, evolving in a variety of beast forms and then integrating them into his own body to multiply the prowess of the fist technique.
Very long later, Feng Lin stood upright. A huge crater had been left in the ground under his feet and the surrounding mountain cliffs were filled with scratch marks.
These were the traces left behind by the martial art moves, leaving shattered rock pieces all over on the ground.
The massive cave expanded to become ten times or more of its original size.
However, before Feng Lin could calm down and summarize his comprehensions, loud booming sounds rang out. He raised his head and saw the top of the mountain starting to crack and collapse. He quickly dodged.
Feng Lin's figure moved like a series of after-images as he moved out 1,000 meters away. The big mountain behind him came crumbling down.
The strong fist force he produced had caused the mountain's interior structure to be completely damaged. The mountain collapsed like scattered sand.
Feng Lin felt awkward. In the process of practicing his fist arts, he almost buried himself. If others were to hear of this...
He found another cave that was even more concealed and started comprehending his fist arts again. His martial arts mastery improved by leaps and bounds.
Right now, the beast-form was very different in his hands. It combined the ability to take on a myriad of changes, and its prowess increased tremendously. It was no longer inferior to the uniqueness of genetic martial arts. In fact, this fist technique could only be used by one with genetic ability. It was now considered to be a genetic martial art, and it was time to give it a change of name.
Beastlike Fist Art?
Feng Lin nodded.
If beast-form fist techniques were said to imitate wild beasts, then the Beastlike Fist Art simulated wild beasts. It possessed battle techniques that were in no way inferior to the battles between wild beasts and could fully unleash gene cultivators' abilities, allowing them to become fiercer.
The only thing that Feng Lin was unsatisfied with was that even though the prowess of the Beastlike Fist Art was a lot higher than ancient martial arts, it was merely a mid-grade low-tier genetic martial art.
Feng Lin thought deep about this while practicing repeatedly, comprehending the true essence of the Beastlike Fist Art.
Humans are the earth, the earth is the heaven, the heaven is the dao, the dao is nature.
Beast-form fist techniques had been created by martial ancestors, who had observed the unique traits of the animals, as they tried to imitate nature.
Tiger brought about the tiger form, cranes brought about the crane form, snakes brought about the snake form...
An idea suddenly popped up in Feng Lin's mind.
Although ferocious tigers and venomous snakes were very violent, they were merely ordinary living creatures. If he could simulate higher-level creatures, wouldn't they be able to merge the characteristics of even more living creatures, raising the quality of the Beastlike Fist Art?
If the level of the creatures was too low, things wouldn't work out. It must be higher level creatures!
What creatures could he imitate?
Feng Lin frowned and started thinking deeply about this. However, his brows instantly relaxed and he smiled.
There was one thing that had slipped his mind.
Where was this place?
The Asura Planet!
Wasn't there a horrifying biological weapon on Asura Planet—the aberrations?
As the top-notch primitive living creatures, they had great strength and amazing speed. They would definitely stand at the top of all primitive living creatures. If he were to simulate the characteristics of aberrations, wouldn't it greatly enhance the essence of the Beastlike Fist Art?
Feng Lin put his idea into action. With a wave of his hand, a three-meter-tall aberration corpse appeared before him. It was that giant queen. Although it had already died, its hideous face and the intense baleful aura oozing out from its body still made it hard for others to get close to the corpse.
He ignored the stench from it and decisively started to dissect the corpse.
As the strongest ruler amongst aberrations, the aberration queen had accumulated all the essence of aberrations' life structure. It was a perfect specimen for study.
Feng Lin acted as if he were a maniac researcher, dissecting the queen's body entirely and not letting go of anything at all. He sank into a mysterious epiphany.
Therefore, he started strolling around the Asura Planet, continuing to hunt down aberrations to collect points for the test. At the same time, he secretly observed how aberrations hunted down other living creatures and from there, he summarized the way they fought.
Imitating nature... Feng Lin did what the people in the past had done and the inspiration in his heart grew increasingly mature. Gradually, a new fist technique was born!
An aberration stood at the top of a mountain. Its entire body was covered in black shell, and its limbs were filled with bone blades. It was like a human-shaped weapon.
That monster suddenly moved, turning into a black shadow and shot out. Its entire body was like a blade that destroyed everything in its path. As it punched and kicked, it created unrestrained destruction. Its ferocity was unrivaled.
The bone blades on its limbs were extremely sharp, and they slashed through the void. Wherever the bone blades passed by, rocks would be sliced up into 100 or even 1,000 pieces, completely crumbling into pebbles.
The Aberration Fist was finally a success!
Feng Lin stood up slowly. The place behind him was in a state of ruins and the massive mountain was flattened.
Right now, the Beastlike Fist Art could already be considered as a high-grade low-tier genetic martial art. If he were to simulate more powerful living creatures in the future, its grade might continue to rise.
Ten days passed by very quickly.
Feng Lin looked at the sky. The time for the test should be up soon. Without any delays, he leaped into the sky, heading for the far distance. In the blink of an eye, he disappeared into the horizon without a trace.
 There was an ancient saying: the tiger comes from wind, and the dragon comes from clouds
