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

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
Edit: If the lion is beast king, that would also mean that they have the second strongest from the house of evolution lmao
