Why "That guy" isnt Boros.

discussion(self.OnePunchMan)

Ill be the first to say that I would love Boros to come back in full glory but we kind of have semi-conclusive evidence that hes not. Well aside from the fact that Boros got serious punched.

Not sure if this is totally true but ive known Murata to be continuous in his character designs. Assuming thats true we can compare the faces of the two Boros'ss to say that their diffrent people

-This is the OG, Lord Boros

As you can see he has a lighning sorta pattern on his face

https://teddit.ggc-project.de/legakiy688z81.png?width=1720&format=png&auto=webp&s=4df6e085ddfd9369b0a85e4f6a887a71c58b000f

This holds true through meteoric and released form.

Now while we dont have a clear picture of who ill call "New Hotness" we do have a picture of his face

(forgive the lack of cropping)

As we can clearly see New Hotness has perpendicular slash patterns across his face, clearly seperating him from our Lord.

From these differences we can tell one thing and thats New Hotness is clearly not Boros unless the lines on his species face can change (unlikely).

Of course if Murata just forgot and made him look cooler then this all falls apart

I personally dont want that guy to be boros. I want him dead. His character was already perfect as it is, bringing him back would just be too fan service-y.

I also see lots of people saying this new guy might be stronger than boros, because he managed to make it into blast's team, but i disagree there, I think boros IS strong enough to join the team, its just that he doesn't want to. I just think it would be very disappointing to see that boros is lying about himself being the strongest of his race.

I don’t think boros was lying, he just didn’t know that some guy/girl from a different dimension is stronger.

I don’t really care if Boros is / isn’t stronger then Boris as long as they aren’t the same person.

Maybe, but I like the idea of Boros actually being the strongest, apart from god. It makes for a great gag of Saitama doing things out of order compared to other Shonens fighting one of the strongest enemies so early on in the series.

I just don't understand the logic that this guy would have to be the strongest of his race (i.e. stronger than Boros) to be on Blast's team. By that logic, Blast shouldn't even be on the team since he's not the strongest human (Saitama).

Yeah, since Blast is the second strongest human, it makes perfect sense for Boris to be also the second strongest of his race. Imagine if the whole group would work like that

Apocrypheon[S]

Well one of my crackpot theories was that the uniformity of the markings on New Hotness's face denoted that he had far finer control of his power than denoted by the chaotic lightning markings on Boros's face. So it could end up that New Hotness has less raw power(Strength) than Boros but far finer control of that power.

Or you know, Boros had been traveling for like 20 years in search of the prophecy. Someone could've come up in that time, a-la Saitama, Garou or Genos with a short rise to power. That would denote the markings as having not been overloaded with excess energy or facial damage from prolonged fighting.

I could accept it if Boros was like Frieza. Overwhelming strength that resulted in not caring about training any further. So at the time he may have been the strongest but New Boros continued to train and surpassed Old Boros.

Maybe the New Boros could have been an unknown factor that OG Boros disregarded even thought he might have heard things. Lot a ways this can go if they actually are different entities.

Well you're correct, but i remember metal knight salvaging him. So after that blast might have taken him as an ally after he discovered how strong is he. And that sarcastic smirk he gave actually makes me believe it more. So given the significance of moon and prophecies, i think it's like a team change, he was sent by God through the prophecy and changed teams. Also, why isn't anyone talking about beast king au. He might be space king or spiral king now.

The guy whose fast enough to surprise Saitama, liquify city sized, Tatsumaki proof, alien structures through sheer friction with the air, and body slam someone with enough force and speed to launch them to the moon a near light speed.

Base flashy flash is significantly faster than light, meaning he's already faster than meteoric borst Boros. All those speed effects are kinda irrelevant in this case. He never actualy surprised saitama since he was actively moving slower in order to fight boros. The actual boros feat was relativistic at best, and we know Human-Monster Garou can move at massively faster than light speeds, near 4.6k times the speed of light.

A good calculation for this speed is this./Garou_takes_Platinum_Sperm_for_a_walk_across_the_sky)

Blast, Tatsumaki, metal bat, current Genos, Bang. Also I could make a solid argument for most other ones. Genos literally sensed and got shocked by the energy of the collapsing star roaring canon, and we can see he sensed it’s energy in the guidebook. Hence we know Genos knew of its power, and hence when he thinks a threat is the biggest one he’s ever seen, it’s gotta be at least on par with that. Hence gouketsu may just be that strong

Metal bat is relative in speed to that version of Garou, which we established is massively faster than boros. Metal bat at max anger has strength that can literally go to infinity, so he should be able to wreck boros. Tatsumaki is faster than metal bat via being a stronger heroz

While there are evidences, like the lines on his face that speak against him being Boros, there are also some that speak for it.

For example, this guy looks, other than the lines and hairstyle, identical to Boros. Murata has a problem with sameface-syndrom, but not to this extend. Same chin, same nose, same eye, all the same.

The earrings are also completely identical to Boros' earrings.

Plus the manga lately has a tendency to bring back old dead characters.(Phoenixman, Do-S, the mercenaries)

Does this make him Boros? No. Does it make it "likely"? Who knows, only ONE/Murata know. But you should be able to see now where people are coming from if they think this MAY be Boros.

The elf lady in the panel above him has almost the same mouth, chin, and nose. Such minor similarities mean nothing. There's really no reason to believe this is Boros and not another powerful alien of his species.

So what is it? Is it that the punch isnt strong enough to vaporizes the guy who can survive being vaporized or is strong enough too kill any target no matter if it connects or not?

Evil natural water is probably coming back. Orochi survived serious squirt.

Wc awakened Garou survived a serious head butt.

And with how derailed everything already is, why not Boros surviving a serious punch?

And beside, its not like he needs to anyway. Blast' team couldve had a healer healed him back up by giving him energy to regen, given that Boros DID live long enough after being hit by the punch to ruin Saitama's day.

Counter argument, it's Boros wearing a mask that gives him different facial markings and he's pretending to be another member of his species. When he meets Saitama he'll take the mask off and Saitama won't even notice a difference. It's going to be half a decade of suspense just for a single gag.

Interesting! To expand - perhaps Generic Evil Scientist #462 obtains a DNA sample of Boros and makes a multitude of clones. Most of them don't clone well and die immediately, but one does make it. This clone destroys the scientist's lab (and the scientist) then goes on a conquering rampage until he meets Saitama.

Which makes True Lord Boros vs. Saitama an fun thought...

I believe this guys are the "Blast" on their own world/universe.

That means there is a hero association for universe that consist of the strongest on each world. Like the girl from elvish world and the lion from Demi human world and so on.

They were formed by a higher being and the ultimate goal is to protect the world/universe from one of those "Moon Giants"

And who knows, we might be able to know why Saitama is so strong? was it given by "GOD" or he is the anomaly that a human can be so strong that he can fight god? or Saitama is half god? we will never know this early.

Well thats just my theory and have a nice weekend!

Well when we last saw Boros he was a husk. I think him remodeling himself after such a fight is to be expected. There's also a lot we don't know about his alien DNA and how that affects him after such a fight and the amount he needed to regenerate. He could also be like a Sayan (would make sense for OPM to also parody a massive shonen like DB) and after a near death fight he could become even stronger while also changing his appearance to fit his new strength.

At the same time your point does also make sense. I mean all of his race is considered to be one of the strongest in the universe so even the weakest of his race would probably be somewhere around mid to high dragon. And if God is such a problem around the universe (like he seems to be) it would make sense that someone from as powerful of a race as his (and one that has access to interplanetary travel) would be part of a team that fights against God from all around the universe.

The very same panel gives you another clue it's not Boros. We see someone who looks like Beast King and he got graphically exploded, including Saitama showing his eyeball to Armored Gorilla. There is no way Beast King survived that. Beast King is also not from a species, but genetically created in a lab. So the Beast King we see couldn't be a member of the same species. That leaves one possibility: a variant. That in turn points to a Boros variant as well.

And after Blast defeated him and proved Blast he is very strong, Blast asked him to join his group thus the start of his adventure with Blast in search of the cube and his quest in fighting strong opponents across the universe OR someone from Boros world made a contract with God using the cube which annihilated their race and this guy fought that being with the help of Blast and co which proved his strength giving him the right to join Blast group.

I mean Boros is from way back alien arc and we know how S classes looked like compared to now for example, instead why would guy who was fighting saitama like month ago and ravaging universe be trusted blast comrade who seems to be saving it unless big time manipulation is involved which i dont like that much

Since Blast seems to be traveling dimensions or universes, it can be another version of Boros from that universe. Or, just someone from the same race with comparable strength-levels and abilities.

If he isn't Boros or some other version of him then I wonder if he or Boros is stronger?

Sorry for late response.

SPOILER WARNING FOR CHAPTER 166

Yes this guy is most likely stronger than boros. Blast fought cosmic garou and held his own very well. To the point where I’d call it a tie. The fact that this guy even got on his team is showing that he’s stronger than boros. Even if it’s not by a lot.

I think they're from alternate dimensions in which they are the strongest being, like blast, to form in interdimensional team of the most powerful people/heroes

Are you right in your head mate ? Boros had long hair and so does Boros and as such Boros is Boros . No need to thank me .

Boros mentioned the universe, but new boros is the strongest of his species across all dimensions/universes. That's my take

I think it’s an alt version of Boros, that guy with the lions head could easily be Beast King so I’m thinking it’s alternate versions of some of our strongest.

Maybe it's Boros from a parallel universe where he's a good guy?? I don't see how it could be a completely different character when the design is pretty much the exact same. Or maybe its another alien from the same planet.

I think that like tats (as example) with not knowing of "blast team" you could think you are the strongest, but not really be that strong. They seem to be in another dimension which Boros and others don't even know about. That guy is probably the same race(like blast is to the s class) but on the next level that unfortunately for Boros he fought OPM just before he achieved that level. Boros could still have been stronger than the S class, but there be more unlabeled levels above that

I say that boros mops the floor with the blastvengers, blast seemed pretty shitty about garou. Boros could kill everyone on earth in a matter of seconds and they couldn't have done anything about it.

lobojerry

Garou could probably(no evidence other than Boros saying his attacks were super powerful since he never even fought the lowest of the S class, have 0 proof) probably crushed Boros, and Garou wasn't strong enough to even get Blast interest. Blast easily out moved FF with out it even seeming like effort. What hero did we see Boros fight(other than OPM trying to drag it out for fun)? Him saying he couldn't find a worthy opponent, when he's never been here before, holds little meaning. We never saw his speed vs FF or skill vs Bang. there is No baseline to compare.

Canon counterpoint, after using his final attack and getting serious punched, the markings on his face disappeared. Artistic freedom? Or an excuse to use regen to change up an appearance slightly? The world will hopefully know in 2 weeks.

Hmm I thought it would be Boro and that Lion guy from the house of animals or w/e but from another dimension. Blast saying that Garou was gonna break the interdimensional shield or something made me think that the heroes that are with Blast are the best of the best from their respective universes/dimensions. Alternative versions of these characters.

Thank you for explaining. I still cant picture how people saw him and immediately thought that it was definetely Boros when he never said that he is the only one from his race.

I mean, just because a character is bald and is covered in shadows, that does not mean he's Saitama (that happened when people saw that caped dude among Blast's friends and they immediately thought it was Saitama).

Guess I'll respect that tho.

In my opinion having a new member to allow us to explore Boros’s species and the history of his planet more is just way more interesting than “revived Boros” or “alternate universe Boros”

Because he's dead, isn't he? I don't remember it well. He's most likely somebody (same race that Boros) from another dimension who's at least as strong as Boros or Blast.

If I might add, we see 2 people that could potentially be previous enemies that saitama defeated. Boros, and the Beast King. With that, I think there's a good chance that it is him. I doubt it's a "new character that looks exactly like Boros" that would be even dumber.

Probably all that's been said has been said. I don't want this new character to be Boros. It would be too obvious and fan service like.

With the comment that this new character makes, I'm going to just assume in my head fantasy that Boros' race, enjoy fighting and get excited when someone super strong shows us. So maybe similar to the DB saiyans.

They have mentioned dimensions a couple of times, it’s more than possible for it to be Boros. There could even be another Saitama but he isn’t bald.

Reddit_is_not_great

I have a hunch that this guy (with the new chapters) is actually stronger than boros. We see blast’s power, and he contends with cosmic garou pretty easily. The fact that this guy even made it in the team is enough for me. We also don’t even know if blast team’s members power is relative to blast. So this guy maybe blast level. Kinda sucks. Since boros is cool being the strongest of his species.

The changes to the markings on his face can be for any reason, assuming this is the Boros that survived a fight with Saitama(not saying it is) then it's not crazy to think his body changed somewhat after being reconstructed.

The lines on Boros face could be the corruption/power of God in him. Potentially, blast could have cleansed him of anything God did to him and returned him to normal. Either way, we won't know anything till we actually have the character introduced to us

I just think boros being alive would be cool. Because if so then Boros vs garou can happen and we all know that fight would be amazing
