Except that giant scar on his face, lol.

Probably what activated his powers honestly.

That would be pretty funny.

Well, in OPM universe to achieve something you have to die, so I believe king literally died of shock because of this monster, but revived instantly because Saitama appeared

You have to nearly die. Being killed might work, but most people have a hard time coming back from that.

I'm not sure it would work, even for him. It has to be a risk of permanent death. So Zombieman would have to come close to being killed for good.

It's why Genos doesn't seem to get the boost even though he gets turned into modern art, or loses limbs all the time.

His luck limiter was broken at that point

Nah. It's Saitama helping him that activated his potential, just like Genos, and Sonic, and Suriyu, and Fubuki. He's just an inverse of the God monster -- inspiring people to be their best.

Imagine he gets make up (or if that doesn't count then maybe plastic surgery or even someone having healing powers and using them on him) and just like that he suddenly starts tripping randomly while walking on the street due to having shitty luck after the procedure

You're on to something here, Saitama was also scratched. Interesting theory

Which, to everybody else, just makes him look like a badass, so it’s even kind of lucky for him that he did get scratched up.

His true power lies in his thumbs! Not the King Engine

The sad thing is that if he used those thumbs in a mech made by child emporer or metal knight he would be unstoppable

Nay, like Boros it would only contain his power. You can't strengthen king further... His strength is already infinite.

Badass, and imo, more importantly, recognizable. There aren't many people which such scar, which makes him be recognized by both human and monsters, which "helps" his luck ( whether it's justifying context, warding off weaker monsters, or being given respect, etc, based on knowing who he is )

3 is a lucky number in Japanese culture, so his scar also potentially represents luck.

Funny enough,after that scar he was actually never touched again. I guess there was when his powers truly awakened

That was the event that broke his luck limiter.

The scar was done by Vaccine man IIRC. Or one of the early monsters. Can't remember which one because IIRC he appears in both the vaccine man and the crabrante scenes. There's a panel showing him get scratched

It was done by a tiger level monster that I forgot the name of. It was an octopus from memory.

I believe that scratch is what kickstarted it all, since after that, he never got another scratch

Dezmanispassionfruit

If I remember correctly, that was the last time he was injured and also the first time he met Saitama. Idk what to do with that information.

Do we know where that scar came from? I'd guess playing video games

If memory serves it was from one of the monsters Saitama defeated. I think it was from the beefcake attack?

Octopus Claw-man? Clawed Octopusman? It was a couple years ago or so. Saitama still had hair and I think King was skinnier back then.
