    Guess we'll have to see if this part of the tournament allows gamblers to use someone who lost in the previous round or simply didn't participate, since this is sort of like a bonus round.

    • Chang
    • Varagarv (Hates FUG)

    Among all of those only Chang is really even a potential assassin for FUG (and it seems unlikely given his personality). And his buddy Quaetro is actually related to red haired test administrator, Quant, that should have come down with Leero. So a very large chunk of the heaviest hitters don't seem to be on FUG's side here.
    Wouldn't be too sure. I mean we know that Baam is easily top 5 yet no one really knew about him. Chances are that Reflejo is also top 5 or above, so if FUG snuck in some gamblers to take out the S1 team then they would have accounted for the powerhouses they would need to take out. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we learn everything we know about the mad dog from Reflejo? If he planned on going behind Baam''s back and killing the S1 team then he could have given Baam false info on the mad dog. Seems slightly strange to give Baam info on a potential powerful ally when Reflejo should be aware that Baam most likely wants to find any way out of FUG.

    @ukimix
    I don't think that Reflejo is Naraka because N. is shorter, but they might be in the same "faction" in FUG due to their mask, and seen that Naraka's subordinate had a strange shadow too :-P

    I'm also curious to see what Wolhaiksong's plan is, seen that Leero-ro his working for them now and Mazino has someone controlling Baam at the moment...I'm really expecting them to interfer with FUg's plan at a certain point of this battle XD

    "Kill Viole's teammates at the tournament tomorrow."

    Viole's teammates, as opposed to Baam's friends. The bet is between the two FUG factions, with one supporting Reflejo's team and the other Team Tangsooyuk, so it's Team Tangsooyuk they intend to kill off. I'm sure they won't hesitate to kill anyone who gets in their way, but I think the focus is on Team Tangsooyuk.

    It's not the rules of the tournament, it's the rules of the bet between the FUG factions of Jinsung and Karaka. Apparently part of their internal rules was that they wouldn't utilize outside sources in the tournament, keeping it as a legitimate competition between the two teams. Rak (or maybe Yihwa) revealing that Viole is Baam is a breach of the rules of the bet, so apparently it's now dissolved and each side can do as it pleases. If Baam's friends didn't contact him they may have just played out the tournament, but it's clear they were anticipating that it would happen. I don't see how Hwa Ryun could have not anticipated Rak going crazy so this may have been intended on Jinsung's side as well, but it seems like an awfully risky move for multiple reasons.

    Amazing chapter. The long-awaited meeting between Rak and Baam, and Androssi's handling of the situation. It was done perfectly. I've always been somewhat curious about Reflejo, but now I can't wait to see his role and his abilities, I'm expecting quite a bit at this point. Add Beta and Leero-ro to the situation, and anything can happen.

    Spoiler: Jammin show

    Your list is pretty good. I also want some casualties on both sides (Team Ship and Tangsooyook). Thing is that I don't want two teams, where one lacks screentime. The abstinence of Team Ship before the Workshop battle was one of the negative aspects in Season 2 in my view. It will be interesting to see how SIU will handle all those characters/both teams after this arc. A "fusion" won't work out in my opinion, but on the other hand I don't want certain characters to be separated (again).

    Oh yeah... Cassano has written "dead in 3...2...1..." all over his face, lol.

    Spoiler: Jammin show

    I have to agree with abc1233 here. The Top 5 list is not really credible. We know for fact that Baam is superior to most of them. And it's heavily implied that Aguero is superior to Chang. But it seems that Baam and Aguero both lack actual "recorded" feats to put them on the list. I would guess that Baam fought very efficiently most of the times (minimal effort to reach his goal), while Aguero was more of an operator rather than a fighter in the front lines, like he himself said. There could be plenty of people who could give our stronger protagonists a run for their money. Not to mention that we have the Blood Tamara and the White Heavenly Mirror as wildcards.

    Maybe, but Reflejo did refer to them as Viole's "past teammates" rather than his "friends", and the bet was only made with Koon and Team Wangnan, his past teammates shouldn't have been involved so it's strange why that was included as a clause in the bet, unless if they'll use that as evidence of Koon revealing things when he wasn't meant to. If this was all planned by Jinsung then chances are that this clause in the bet could have been a hindrance to him too, maybe he's enlisted his own outside help, though I agree it is pretty risky. Heck, maybe they're planning on going after both teams, Viole stepped out of line by speaking to them so it could serve as a reminder of FUG's control.

    Beta could be one of those who belong in the top 5, it's already been implied that he could be stronger than Cassano and Horyang and they're probably the closest to the top 5 we've seen so far. He did say he wanted to take part in the workshop battle and this came right after Reflejo's speech about all rules being off, so he could be working with FUG.

    But Beta can't just participate in the tournament now, can he? The teams and their members were set before the start of the tournament. I don't think you can "recruite" new members as you please during the tournament.

    Maybe not officially but after expressing his interests in participating, he must have some role in the upcoming battles even if that is interfering in a match illegally.

    We'll know it in the following chapters. I don't see an impediment in the height. But, beyond the similarity on the shadows, also it's possible the poken is commanded by several FUG members.

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 160 Discussion/161 Predictions

    In the end I think that Reflejo wants to kill them all!Baam's first friends and his last team. I can't see any reason to let any of the two team survive, but that's why things are getting interesting. Rak is telling Androssi everything he knows, and seen that the tournament format has changed, we can expect the two team to collaborate/fuse to win and go against FUG once and for all.
    The big variable will be Mad Dog's team, but won't be surprised if some of them are associated with Wolhaiksong and they are there to test Baam/Viole's true motives and character.....

    I'm also curious to see in which team Beta is supposed to go....any guess guys?

    There's something that is really bothering me but i can't come up with anything on it....Why do Wangnang and Karaka have the same RED RING with ZAHARD CREST???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's what I fear though. An illegal intervention will most likely occur, but I would definitely not like it. It shouldn't be that easy to not only enter a test illegally, but also roam around freely without anyone stopping him. But with all this corruption it's nearly impossible to get a clean test I guess.

    Beta can't join a team, because the teams and their members were already set. He was never an official participant in this tournament, therefore he can't/shouldn't take part in it in their advanced stage. As far as we know, Beta follows his own interests. Regardless of what he will do in the upcoming chapters and which team will profit from his actions, he will do it illegally and as a not permitted participant. This is of course based on a scenario, where his actions influences the ongoing tournament.

    It's official. In the company translation Reflejo's orders don't give much room for doubt.



    Apparently he is ordering the deaths of "all" of Baam's former teammates. Which I gotta say is pretty dumb. I mean, how does he see that playing out if he succeeded?

    Reflejo: Baam, all your friends are dead.
    Baam: My friends....
    Reflejo: You belong to FUG now.
    Baam: How do you figure?
    Reflejo: Well, because if you don't we'll hurt your....oh crap.

    ... To me, it's a truly sign of geniality that one of the most tough, hard, powerful characters I've seen like Rak, has cried his tears and get that emotional, in such a believable way… the drawings of his eyes, tears and hand grabbing Baam was just... really beautiful.

    Now Androssi went from being alert to anger to surprise to strategically thinking to blushing and feeling some butterflies in her stomach and at the end back to the strategic mode… I guess only Baam can do something like that to someone like her …

    Anyway, talking about women feelings, being as lacking of feelings as XiaXia is, I bet that Novik should have to be squeezing the bunnies and pushing the rabbit ears in order to be able to get her drunk… Nothing to do with feelings for sure.

    Well, Viole’s former friends are not all the friends he has, and Horyang and the others certainly have had a role in soften Baam’s feelings; we have seen how he cares about them. But I think Reflejo’s decision makes clear that they won’t need Baam’s friends anymore to persuade him in order to get that he does what they need him to do. That could be the case, if the way in which FUG pretends to own Baam is depriving him of his will. So, the theory that they want the demon inside the tank dominates Baam is a chance to get that. They want Baam to be a mere object, a tool or a weapon that they could use at will.

    Now I'm more sure that Yuto is Hwa Ryun. Both factions, Reflejo/Karaka' and Ha Jinsung' should had to have his representative in the tourney, in order to keep safe their agreement. And sure Ha Jinsug should have to know what will be Reflejo's next move. I wonder what he and Hwa will do about it.

    Anyone has an idea of why Horyang couldn’t move his feet there?

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 160 Discussion/161 Predictions

    I always got the impression that the FUG and their plan is some kind of... stupid and/or flawed?

    Before the tournament I thought it doesn't make sense to force an irregular (by threatening what's most important to him) to join the FUG and become a "god". I mean, what will this guy probably do the instant he becomes one of the strongest beings in the Tower? Carry out FUG's plan or annihilate every single member of the FUG? I guess the latter. At least that's what I would do.

    But later it was revealed that the FUG plans on taking control over Baam. That made their plan sound a little bit better. Still, with everything what was said and stated about irregulars, I would be very careful about what will work on an irregular.

    What FUG is trying to do now is a huge gamble. Baam would rather commit suicide than following FUG after they killed all of his friends. This time FUG is going all in and I hope they will fail like all the previous gamblers who went all in.
