>>140017090
It's not progressive. Kars is the culmination of evolution. He's literal perfection. Why try to evolve when you've already got the perfect specimen?

>>140017090
He is the ultimate lifeform, why do you need to procreate? to make more beings like you who can be on your level?

>>140016305
Was part 3 final battle asspull too?
>>
>>140017411
every Jojo part has at least a little bit of asspull, but Araki is the king of making them seem awesome anyway because the asspulls are generally a lot more interesting than just "X person now can shoot even bigger energy beams"

Case in point: the kid in part 6 finding Weather Report's disc is definitely an asspull, but it was also super awesome.
>>
>>140017257
>every asspull in SamFlam somehow managing to blow the one before it out of the water
>>
>>140017411
I thought part 3 was a major asspull at first, but I later realized it was actually kind of foreshadowed by Joseph and Jonathan having the same stands, and the fact that Star Platinum was the only stand that didn't have a special power.

The real asspull was everyone suddenly being able to fly at the end

>>140017382
Being a colony, swarm, or hivemind actually does sound like it'd be better, yes.

They did? Do you mean Holly and Joseph?

>>140017754
I think he means Dio and Jotaro
>>
>>140017686
>>140017754
>>140017772

Dio had two stands. His head had Za Warudo, while Johnathan Joestar's body had a stand identical to Hermit Purple called The Passion
>>
>>140017772
I thought that was the "asspull" or at least Jotaro's time stop lasting longer because he was angry.

that said I loved Jotaro tricking Dio into thinking he could then couldn't stop time with a magnet.
>>
Also one of the best finals in anime history.
>>
>>140017498
I think that the worst asspulls in JoJo in the old canon (haven't read SBR and JJL yet) were during Part 5. Giorno would come up with the most insane, retarded shit no one would ever think of (turning the rock with virus into a snake to get antidote for it later) yet it all works out every single time. God damnit fuck you Giorno how do you do it?
>>
>>140017793
Why would that foreshadow SP being able to stop time? If anything it would mean SP should be able to do what hermit purple does.

>>
>>140017629
I'm not sure if this is an asspull or not.
>>140018888
Quads.
But not an asspull. It's not a random powerup pulled out of his ass, it's something netero had put in him from the beginning in case he failed.
Or would it count as well? I'm honestly not sure. The bomb's ridiculousness with how small it was might count considering the power of it and the poison after effect.

>>140021174
The villain has a power that, once somebody witnesses it, has total control control over their perception of reality.
That white haired kid was absolutely sure he had landed the killing blow on the villain, only to reveal to the kid that he had gravely wounded a close friend of his instead.
I don't recall if she survives or not but it's essentially weighted on him for the rest of the fight as the villain taunts him for making that mistake.
>>
>>140020761
Idunno dude, "Fuck you, nuke" seems like a pretty huge asspull.

It was fucking perfectly done though, because of the fact that it WAS an asspull. Even a being such as Meruem, who's on a whole other level than even Netero, was hopeless in the face of a cheap dirty bomb invented by humans. Pretty hard reality check.

What he wrote is confusing, but it was supposed to be that it implies that it's possible Dio's ability is not to stop time, but rather the abillity to copy the Joestar's stands, which would make sense since Stands are metaphorical representations of the users, and "Usurpation of the Joestars" was pretty much the only thing in his head for as long as he could remember.
>>
>>140020965
wmd's were.
>>
>>140020965
Yeah, nope.
>>140021309
Yeah. I always associate "asspull" with "magical power up that wins the day for the good guy" but generally those don't have repercussions like the two HxH moments. Hell, nobody wins when Netero sets off the rose. I mean, I guess humanity does, but Netero and Meruem both end up losing that game.
Same with Gon and Pitou. Gon loses all of his potential and ability for a few minutes worth of a power up that he'll probably never reach in his lifetime again.
That's why I've got a hard time considering these "asspulls". They both beat the bad guy with something out of nowhere, but both are logically possible in the realm of HxH, and both don't lead to that victory that you'd see in other shonen. Like "the heart" in bleach.

Kind of a deus ex machina. But it requires context, honestly.
>>

How was this an asspull? Please explain.
>>
>>140021527
The more contrived it seems, the bigger an asspull it is.
>>
>>140021527
Was never mentioned prior or alluded in anyway shape or form and just happens to get the character out of a terrible situation.

Josephs was and wasn't asspull because his entire character is based around asspulls, so an asspull from him is entirely fine and not out of ordinary.

Jotaro getting time stop could be connected to dio would be something that anyone with a brain thought of, but I believe araki said dios stand came from himself, not jonathan, that's an asspull

Does it gets a long-winded reply by a raging autist, with sentence like "you just don't get it" and "it was actually foreshadowed, you just had to be careful"?
If yes, it's an asspull.
Pic related.
>>
>>140021802
Joseph rolled a natural 20 on birth, on top of being a Joestar. There's a reason he's the only Joestar that's lived so long, he was born OP.

I wouldn't call Jotaros time stop an asspull, though. It was established relatively early that each stand had it's own unique power (Less so with the earlier stands, but I blame that on Araki making it up as he went along). Up until then, Star Platinum had no power. Then suddenly The World is practically completely identical to Star Platinum, except it can stop time.

It was pretty clear at that point that DIO and Jotaros stands were in fact identical to each others.
>>
>>140017026
This is always the dumbest shit.
If Goku got pregnant by Vegeta in DBS, would that be a "predictable outcome" because hundreds of legbears "predicted" it?
>>
>>140021802
Jotaros timestop is one of the least asspull-y things of Part 3. The only thing you need to "establish" that isn't already known/hinted at is that DIO and Jotaros stands are identical.
>>
>>140017090
It was because he reached the pinnacle of evolution, so having a gender or sex is useless since they exist primarily for procreation. He's already perfect and immortal so he doesn't need children.
>>
>We would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids and their mountain of traps!
>>
>>140021854
Joseph's severed hand stabbing Kars in the throat has the least to do with him being OP, it's just sheer dumb luck. And he didn't know that Kars would get smacked by volcano debris, either. Ergo, an asspull.
>>
>>140022186
>has the least to do with him being OP, it's just sheer dumb luck

But Joseph is so OP because of how much dumb luck he has. Natural 20s, man.
>>
>>140020761
no mention of nuclear weapons before, or 'any last resort' or any foreshadowing, is an asspull
>>
>ultimate life form with eagle eyes
>can't tell a dummy from the real JoJo
>>
>>140022240
In his defence, Joseph was kind of a dummy himself so the resemblance is uncanny.

There was a TIP from the 3rd arc talking about that though, and how the mountain ended becoming forbidden because of the traps. Not really an asspull to use it again in the final arc.

>>140021527
it's a very convenient power that comes from nowhere and is adjusted perfectly for the type of situation character is struggling with

>>140020761
>>140021503
I don't consider Gon-san an asspull at all, it was foreshadowed basically from the beginning unfortunately I didn't save that pic, maybe someone will post it. Not so much for the Netero nuke but that was fine too. The only asspull in HxH is Nanika.

>>140022405
Asspull by definition should suck so I'm thinking OP meant something like "Asspulls that aren't actually Asspulls"
>>
>>140022503
No, the problem is that people like you keep looking at asspulls done well, and reasoning your way into thinking that it's not actually an asspull.

No, it's still an asspull.
>>
>>140022405
>>140022503
OP here. The way Kars was defeated is the asspull to end all asspulls, but it's so glorious that you just can't be mad about it. So there you have it. An asspull can be good.

as far as JoJo goes I have absolutely no idea if that was an asspull or not because I haven't seen it. But there are a few examples of powers that are not asspulls and shouldn't be considered as ones
>>
>>140022676
Jojo is so full of asspulls that it should just be called Asspull: the anime.

BUT, it gets away with it because almost always the asspulls are great.
>>
>>140022405
Bite the dust was technicaly an asspull too you know.
>>
>>
>>140021503
It is an asspull same way Final Getsuga Tensho is and every occurrence of the term is. It maks little sense for you o magically in a fight because you sacrificed your powers or future potential.

That in itself is extremely useful and convinient.
>>
>>140023092
Is it really an asspull if you spend half the arc building to it?
>>
>>140021854
>Up until then, Star Platinum had no power.
Star Platinum had good eyesight and precise movements
Still, it was pretty obvious what the outcome of Jotaro's and DIO's fight would be when the similarity between their stands was first mentioned
