Solo Leveling Chapter 160 Recap

In the previous Solo Leveling Chapter, we saw Jin-Woo asking Thomas and other hunters to move to a safe place. Meanwhile, the Monarchs senses the incredible power of the Shadow Monarch in Jin-Woo. They are surprised by the fact that a mere human can harness such immense power of the strongest Monarch.

After that, Jin-Woo releases the shadow army against the three Monarchs and asks them to “Come Forth.” However, the Frost Monarch freezes the entire Shadow Army and feels disrespected by Shadow Monarch’s weak attack. Also, he realizes that Jin-Woo has yet to understand the power of the Shadow Monarch that resides within him.

Finally, Jin-Woo gets his Kamish Wrath dagger out of the ice and promises to kill every one of them. So, the battle will definitely get more intense in the upcoming chapter.
