It's hard to think someone's cool when you just feel terrible for them. Friendly reminder that he will sail the stars and discover galaxies unknown for eternity, but will never get the one thing he truly wants.
off all the stupid asspulls in TTGL - why couldnt viral deleop spiral power ala self circular logic
>uses willpower to develop spiral power
>uses spiral power to use willpower
or at least give him a waifu dammit
I guess he probably got talked about back during his day. But still, he's always been my favorite.
He looked at heaven and turned from it because he still had a job to do.
I swear I didn't make that pun on purpose
That's a wrestling term? How do you know that? I haven't watched the WWF since I was 5. Okay, let's put it into narrative terms. Viral couldn't have anything nice because his role in the story was, partially, to make us feel the reality that spiral power comes at a cost of trampling on nearby life, that growth of the self means coming into conflict and doing harm with other beings. He had to lose, and hard, to make the anti-spiral message have any weight. Therefore, his role as a character was always going to be to lose. He does it quite effectively. It must be awful being so uptight that you can't accept new words.
>create a jobber
>make him immortal
Viral is one cool cat
Felt pretty bad for this guy before he went psycho.
Reading his Gaiden made me feel even worse for him.
He'll watch all the people he really loved die out in like a century and then become an ancient patriarch of a family that neither really knows nor cares about him. Would you want a fate like that?
This scene always confused me. The Spiral King explains that beastmen can't reproduce or produce spiral energy. It should have been impossible for him to get trapped in the labyrinth, and more impossible for him to have a family in the labyrinth.
Did nobody pay attention to the show or what? Rewatch the dream scene again, make note of how to flies off with the others and compare his energy ball to the rest of the flying balls of light when they take off.
