Just what is there to dislike about the Chaos, Loki and Skurai fight in Ragnarok: Into The Abyss? What can be said to be so wrong and even annoying about this scene in the manhwa?

The fight between the 3 aforementioned characters happens in Volume 4 of the comic. One of the first things that can be said about this particular scene is that it's very, very, very long.

Those words might not even be enough to adequately describe things because this fight scene seemed like it would never end. Seriously, it just went on and on and on. It was such a drag.

We first start with Loki and Chaos fighting one-on-one with each other in Chapter 32 of Volume 4. This fight scene goes on long enough that one has to wonder why our resident main character won't let Fenris Fenrir and Iris Irine help him when he's clearly on the losing side against the assassin.

Seriously, what are the readers supposed to think of our protagonist when he acts like that? Why won't he ask for help and why does he insist on trying to defeat Loki on his own when he's clearly having a hard time? This just prolongs their fight in such an unnecessary way.

Just when you think it can't get any worse, it actually does, because, when we get to Chapter 35 of the same Volume, Skurai shows up seemingly from out of nowhere. Why did he just suddenly show up? And why does he want to take on both Loki and Chaos at the same time? Wasn't his plan to let these 2 fight and then to take on Chaos when the hero's been weakened?

After all, isn't that the whole reason why he destroyed the Assassins' Guild (so he could blame all this on the protagonist, not that that makes sense, but that's what the graphic novel says anyway)? Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be getting any answers to those questions any time soon as the 3 just get on with fighting each other and this scene gets even longer than it already is.

Now that Chaos is fighting against 2 people, we once again have to wonder why Iris and Fenris aren't helping their friend. Two against one is certainly not fair even if Loki and Skurai are also fighting against each other.

Moreover, if the ladies are so concerned about innocent people dying and getting involved in this fight, then why aren't they doing anything about it?

Why are they so focused on watching this long and never-ending fight instead of helping all the people get away? They could be leading the people out of harm's way. They could ensure that no one will get hurt or get caught up in this 3-way fight.

More than that though, let's take a look at the people of Prontera who are around to watch this really long fight scene. If these people already saw that some of them died because of all the fighting, then what in the world are they still doing here?

Why are they still continuing to watch this annoying fight scene? They should have run away already before they end up getting involved in this and losing their lives. Seriously, what are they waiting for? Why are they watching this aggravating fight?

This is really something that warrants being asked especially when we later see that a little girl gets in the way of the Chaos, Loki and Skurai fight.

If all these people had left already, then that girl wouldn't have gotten in the way of the fight. After all, even others who weren't near the 3 currently embroiled in this match should have heard the sounds of fighting.

They should have known to get out of the way and not even approach the fighting trio. Is it supposed to be believable that a little girl suddenly shows up from out of nowhere (or so it seems) just to get in the way of the fight?

This just ends up coming across as unbelievable, not to mention contrived. What do you think? What are your thoughts on the fight between Chaos, Loki and Skurai? Do you wish that it ended sooner?
