What would Goblin Slayer do if another specialist who was better than him completely wiped out all the goblins?
If the goblins were indeed wiped out of existence, he'd probably find the next creature that threatens the villages, and the next,
until it ends with the king being a threat to villages which he would then kill.It's a never ending cycle of insanity just for the sake of saving the vilages.
Nah. He's motivated by pure hatred and revenge to eradicate all goblins. If someone completely wiped out all the gobs he'd either be relieved that it's all finally over, or go the way of meiji restoration samurai and feel lost without a purpose in life anymore.
That's your standard scifi/military BBEG motivation actually.
>war is eliminated
>soldier/general/whatever feels out of place
>decides to instigate another/eternal war to fight in so he can feel alive once again
he would awkwerdly try and talk about killing goblins with him, since he doesnt really know how to interact with people and the only common ground that would make him interested was golbin slaying
Either he would be incapable of accepting that every single one of them was destroyed, and he would continue to walk the earth looking to kill more goblins...
or he would accept reality, in case he would probably have a mental breakdown from which only the priestess or her childhood friend could save him. After that, he would go on and retire with one of them.
He seems to realize that there is a cycle of revenge between goblins and humans(to them HE is the goblin), and has even given a thought about the possibility that there might be a good goblin, but either he doesn't believe they exist, or believes that if they exist they wouldn't live with evil goblins. Or he simply doesn't care.
I wonder what would happen if he ever came across a 'good' goblin. One he could actually recognize as good.
There's a difference, they move because they love war, being war heros or just love killing. Goblin Slayer's motivation on the other hand is purely hatred. The moment all the world's gobs are dead he's going to celebrate then probably kill himself.
judging by 70's he'd probably do coke and kick it from overdose.
I think Anon's don't give him the credit he deserves.
He understands that a world without goblins would be a good thing. He isn't going to go and start letting goblins go in hopes that they escape and make more groups for him to kill later.
He has certainly become unhinged because of his experiences, but that doesn't mean he's crazy.
He understands that a world without goblins is a world that wouldn't need him, Goblin Slayer.
And that. That is a good thing.
Now who would actually do such a thing?
he did say he'd prefer if they completely fucked off
>tfw my (female) elf thief character got kidnapped by kobolds after we cleared a whole booby-trapped kobold-infested dwarf fortress
>tfw my DM isn't into cringey shit so there was no lizard on elf raep
oh well at least we killed more kobolds.
>my DM isn't into cringey shit
It's only cringey if you aren't all a bunch of degenerates
LARP with a bunch of neckbeards as a healslut elf and have them skullfuck you whenever they make camp
I started reading and I have to tell you, this is fucking overlord but from the perspective of those dumb fucks in the adventurers guild.
you guys have already probably seen this shit, but is this like a new common thing in manga now? guilds with these ranks named after metals and materials and shit?
Goblin Slayer is one of a kind and as lucky as he's so much for RIP AND TEAR.
Other adventurers don't give a damn about goblins most, if not nearly always all the time.
But if by some bizarre reason that even happened, then it would've been more of a JOLLY OLD COOPERATION.
They probably survived their group's destruction thanks to the their very intelligence/strength, which would mean that not only are they wiser than most younger goblins, but also smarter and stronger.
Couple this with the possibility that many of the members of a goblin group could be the children of the now elder drifter, and adventurers might unknowingly be creating a new generation of smarter, stronger, more evil goblins with each culling by allowing some of them to escape, similar to how a vaccination can cause the creation of superbugs.
>this is fucking overlord but from the perspective of those dumb fucks in the adventurers guild
That's kinda why I like it. Goblin Slayer isn't some chosen hero of fate, he's just some guy that was wronged by the world. His dedication to annihilating goblins makes him admirable in my book.
>His dedication to annihilating goblins makes him admirable in my book.
Kinda makes me pity him.
Someone has to kill the goblins, of course. He's not doing it because of that.
He's doing it because he needs to kill the goblins. It's the only thing that keeps him moving.
Tell me one difference between the adventurers guild from overlord and from GS, besides the enemies they face.
They aren't that different, really.
I hate Goblin Slayer armor
It's too detaield and unique for me to reproduce it on another game and RP as hm
>Assuming my droid gender
Oh, you mean specifically about the adventure guilds? well, you got me, i thought you mean overlord in general (isekai with overpowered MC), i have no fucking idea how their adventure guilds work so i can't say shit.
Go read it (you might also want to watch the anime, they're both different because it started as a light novel) It might leave out some shit but it's pretty okay. It's no GOBLIN SLAYER but it's meh
Hell no, i hate isekai, i hate overpowered MC went is not played for laughs (one punch man), i know overlord actually took time to learn about the world before making his move but i don't care.
Jesus man not every anime or manga has to the best fucking shit out there. Sure there will be turds, but sometimes you just wanna watch average shit because of a likable character or an understandable premise with an interesting reason behind it, or maybe they just fight with fucking gun swords and that's hella cool.
Doomguy and Goblin Slayer have completely different modus operandi, even if they're quite different.
Goblin Slayer seems much more sane than Doomguy, ironically.
>i hate overpowered MC went is not played for laughs
But it is played for laughs.
> i know overlord actually took time to learn about the world before making his move but i don't care.
Just like Goblin Slayer learned to hunt goblins,
and is now as overpowered as Ainz-sama is to his enemies.
Doomguy is actually sane enough to interact with other humans, is just all them are dead when he arrives and only ones left are demon worshiping madmen, remember how in doom 2016 he actually took time to back up a helpful AI?
While I am amazed that someone else has read Red Eyes, that wasn't really the motivation for anyone. Even the General that made Genocide who he was only did it to prepare his country for war, not to start one.
Well you're missing out, I assure you, and I hope that you change your mind later on.
Doomguy is actually both insane, hardcore, and still capable of interacting with people. And despite being a kill-frenzy maniac, he'll only shoot demons.
Hell, his original backstory in the older Dooms showed why he was sent to Mars.
His commanding officer ordered him to shoot civilians. Doomguy replied by mutilating him for giving such an order.
Not that anon, and I really tried liking overlord, but as time went on I felt the author was trying way too hard to make the story edgy, with pages and pages being wasted on torture and how on monstrous the characters are.
The character designs are really cool, and some parts of the story are fun, but I had to drop it, I get enough of that edgy tryhard thing from western fantasy novels.
take up knitting
>is this like a new common thing in manga now? guilds with these ranks named after metals and materials and shit?
Not really new.
Also common: guilds with letter ranks, sometimes with pluses and with like S and SS at the top.
He'd go after the next threatening thing. His reasoning for going after goblins and not the world threatening monsters was sound. Many villages would be destroyed before the world is. He's doing what he can to save the most as it is.
It's D&D, so they're probably also leveling up.
And if GS ever misses any, it'll be worse than normal, because he's probably decently high level enough by now that surviving an encounter with him is worth a lot.
Priestess: You have allowed this obsessive hatred to twist your mind, until now, until now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy.
Goblin Slayer: Don't lecture me, Priestess! I see through the lies of Idealism. I do not fear the dark side as you do. With it I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new Empire.
Priestess: Your new Empire?
Goblin Slayer: Don't make me kill you.
Priestess: Goblin Slayer, my allegiance is to the Republics, to democracy.
Goblin Slayer: If you're not with me, then you're my enemy.
Priestess: [realizing that Goblin Slayer is consumed by hatred and there's no reasoning with him anymore] Only a Goblin deals in absolutes.
[draws her Staff]
Priestess: I will do what I must.
Goblin Slayer: You will try.
[draws his Short-sword and confronts Priestess]
Hi, it's me, /pol/. How is it going?
Fine. Gloomy weather here in my city. How about you?
The same, but it could be a very good friday night. I wish you a nice weekend.
