One Punch Man: Will Garou be able to show Saitama’s serious punch?
One of the scary things about the Cosmic Fear state is its ability to copy an enemy’s technique. Garou was able to use the power of Saitama and Blast in this mode.
Even so, I feel that he can only fully imitate Saitama’s power when he sees him using all of his abilities. But will Garou be able to show the bald guy’s serious punch?
The basis for copying Garou’s technique seems to be due to his well-researched Liu Shui Breaking Stone Fist, a martial art that specializes in countering attacks and using the attacker’s own strength to fight back. Not only Bang’s techniques, Garou also understood how to fight using Watchdog Man’s movements.
With this trick, he can copy a person’s fighting style.
1. In Saitama’s case, Garou imitated his whole face before using Saitama’s technique
When using Cosmic Fear for the first time, Garou imitated Saitama’s face before fighting. As a result, as we can see, he used the bald guy’s technique.
Interestingly, Garou is wearing Saitama’s face for the second time when he throws a serious punch at the end of the new chapter.
2. In Blast’s case, Garou doesn’t mimic the face of the number one hero
Another case occurred with Blast. After seeing his true power, Garou immediately copied it and managed to get out of Blast’s trap the same way the number one hero usually does when he teleports.
He can also use Blast’s techniques. What makes this a bit different is that Garou didn’t imitate his face when he first copied Blast’s technique.
3. The reason is Garou wants to see Saitama’s full power
From the above two cases, we can see some differences between Saitama and Blast, who were both copied by Garou. In Saitama’s case, Garou always mimics his face before using techniques like the serious punch in the latest chapter.
He said that Saitama hasn’t unleashed his full power yet. Therefore, Garou immediately destroyed his body and took Genos’ core to make the bald man fight seriously, bringing out his full potential.
Garou’s aim was to copy Saitama when he used his full power. When he fought Blast, he immediately succeeded in his first attempt. Garou said that he understood it when he escaped from the trap of the number one hero.
That’s why he didn’t mimic Blast’s face when using Gravity Knuckle. From the above comparison, we can conclude that initially Garou must see the full capabilities of his opponent and understand them perfectly. Once these two conditions were met, he could use their techniques freely.
As long as he hadn’t seen his opponent’s full power, Garou had to use their faces to use the technique. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t fully understand Saitama’s abilities, since he hasn’t used his full strength yet.
4. Saitama’s black face seems to hint that Garou might not be able to replicate his full powers.
Based on the discussion of Garou’s copying ability, we can conclude that the reason he can’t perfectly imitate Saitama’s ability is because he hasn’t reached his full potential yet. Therefore, the last moment in the latest chapter is a golden opportunity for Garou to master the great power of Saitama.
The problem is that the final scene shows Saitama’s face in black as he prepares to defeat Garou with a serious punch. Saitama’s face is really black in the new chapter. And when Garou imitated his face, his face looked like Saitama’s face when normal.
It’s possible that Saitama’s black face is a sign that Garou won’t be able to replicate all of his powers. The first theory is that Saitama’s punch will defeat Garou and knock him out before Garou copies his full abilities.
The second theory is that Garou can’t imitate Saitama’s full power, because it’s too big. This is probably because the bald guy is very angry. It was possible that Saitama had never unleashed his abilities this much before.
I suspect that there is a limit to Garou’s ability to copy, and Saitama’s full power has exceeded that limit. In addition to the above two theories, the bald man’s black face may give new clues about the origin of Saitama’s power, which is still controversial until now.
That is the theory of whether Garou can copy Saitama’s serious punch in One Punch Man. What do you think? Please write comments!
