Yeah, pretty much this.
While it wouldn't surprise me at all if Priscilla defeated Riful-doll, you have to remember that the latter is the first to ever be similar to Priscilla in strength. Teresa fought her pre-awakened and even admitted that she would likely lose if she had let her live and encountered her later on. She nearly defeated an early awakened Priscilla, but she was nowhere near to being the beast that she is now. She easily defeated Isley, awakened Beth and Alicia, semi- awakened Clare, Riful (though weakened to the point where she could not awaken), and A powered up Dauf, in addition to being able to almost force herself out of the Destroyer cocoon.
Priscilla basically curb stomped every single opponent that she has come up against and the only time she struggled was when she fought Teresa as a Claymore and as a incomplete Awakened Being. Riful-doll is the first to be able to fight on even ground to her and, if the translation I read is to be trusted, she is now an equal to Priscilla having absorbed the Destroyer.
Not this idiocy again... Read this post and then we can talk: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...=1#post2280226

And you have to be rude why? I was not commenting directly on Teresa vs. Priscilla, but on Riful-doll vs. Priscilla. I was simply saying that Teresa was one of the few who was able to fight her without being almost immediately annihilated.
^ I think Pris is probably interested in the Riful Doll. After all it is the first one to be able to fight her toe to toe (excluding Teresa) And last longer than a few minutes.
As for crittercism's to how R-D absorbed the destroyer - I can see it -; it's not really a well executed scene. It would have been more believeable if R-D (cough, Yagi) had found some way of distracting Prissy when she did it: such as moving in close to grapple/tussle while extending a 'limb' to absorb the destoryer.
The main problem I have is it's too quick; there isn't even a sense that R-D had planned to do it; just a kind of throw-a-way, spontaneous, 'lets do something off the wall' nonesense about it.
If this had been her plan from the moment she realised what was happening inside Prissy's s body; then I might have been impressed; it's ballsy when u first see it, but it don't stand up well under scrutiny.
Hopefully. I am interested in a character that can actually rival Priscilla instead of just getting outright murdered by her. I hope that she's not just a tool that Yagi is using to stall time that will be disposed of the second she's no longer useful, that would be lame.
I didn't mind the timing of Riful-doll absorbing the Destroyer too much. She seemed to stop regenerating for a while on purpose to throw Priscilla off guard. Priscilla got cocky because of the amount of damage Riful-doll was showing, got too aggressive and got beat up when she instantly regenerated.
As for the topic at hand - this may have already been pointed out but Dae seems to understand/know a lot about the Riful doll. I'm wondering if he had some sort of hand it making it happen. Would be nice if we found out just where this thing came from next chapter.
Yeah, Dae would be trembling with delight to get his hands on a specimen like Riful (or what was left), he wouldn't miss an opportunity like that. But insofar as having a hand in Riph....I don't know, because it's like he'd have to know about Riful and Dauph's relationship in order to know they'd fuse or whatever into something cool. Still it's conceivable. Talking about Riph though, we can kinda get a sense of how ridiculous Priss is, because Priss will inevitably win, which means (partial) destroyer + Dauph + Riful =\= Priss.
New chapter in a few days, hoping to see some Galatea action.
And as far as mental states and emotions go in affecting or augmenting awakeneds capabilities, we don't have to go any further than Clare who is always 'burning a fire in her heart'. No-one will get more of a boost in power in this respect than her! Super-powered, badass personality Clare is coming...
