    I'm thinkin' this is not what it looks like.

    Maybe those guys attacked Baam and he greased them in self defense then he told this new group he was going to eliminate them because he knows whatever comes next is going to be too tough for them and that they would all die.

    I know it seems a little far fetched but I'm grasping at straws here.

    I kind a like this baam (if he is baam) i mean he is polite seems like he doesnt seek out battles but fight seriously when he is attacked, only difference is he wasnt so lethal when he fought back then.
    He is in level 20 he must have been tempered to a reasonable degree now.
    I mean he is not a war mongerer psychopath like kenpachi, nor does he fight with hatred. He is just a deadly guy to fight against.
    If you see it that way i doubt he is different from any decent main character.
    Yes he is not a saint like goku or naruto or ichigo but being a saint is really annoying
    I like him this way

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 82 Discussion/83 Predictions

    The problem I have with it is that a focal point of the story was that those who climb the tower lose a part of themselves as they go. Everybody looks out for their own interests first. In just being kind he was breaking the rules by being that way and inspires that in others. So Baam if were to lose to that he would also lose much of what makes him unique. He would end up being just another climber.

    Him being strong is no big deal. There are tons of strong people but we've seen the effect a selfless person like Baam can have on people like Androssi and Yuri. He spread his selflessness to others wherever he went and I think it's that's what's really most dangerous about him.

    The chapter is out, check out your favorite reader sites, too lazy to link.

    @Jammin

    he's already lost part of himself. He's no longer a staunch advocate of betrayal. His entire set of beliefs were shattered by the one who taught him those ideals, he now must form a new set to go on with life on his own. Baam is nearly a blank slate, now he can actually learn what he should be conscience of and live forming anew his own set of rules as he progresses.

    Now that is rather.. strange. ^^; Baam didn't seem to be that type, although now he had changed and we didn't have any idea of new Baam yet... Still I would believe it more that he would probably truly eliminate them all if that is what he has to do to get to where Rachel is. He is that determined, yes.

    I agree with this. His purpose stay true, which is to find Rachel. To reach that he might not hesitate to do anything, given how Rachel treated her, maybe... So maybe there is a tint of hatred and hurt of being betrayed portrayed in how he fights or interacts with people from now on. He is always a deadly guy to fight against, anyway. :P

    That was because he didn't know what the Tower really is, climbing it solely for Rachel's sake. Now that he had learned few things (I also believe that the guide who went with him would have explained several things more about the Tower, in addition to the training within this 5 years), I think he might just try to hide that kind part of him, but that he wouldn't be able to hold that mask for long. He is that pure. <3

    I also agree with this. This part of him would be the dominant one in few chapters ahead, but I still believe in his kindness as well, especially as he interacts with other climbers and meet old friends. ^^

    I guess everything will lay upon the 10th candidate who has yet to appear. I'm curious to see how arranged is this test wrt the masterminds plots.

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 82 Discussion/83 Predictions

    Glad the chapter's finally out. Hmm i don't know what to think about Baam , is he really gonna eliminate all the other regulars ?
    I'm starting to think that maybe he didn't meant what he said , yeah that has to be it 'cause i can't accept him turning into a merciless guy. I mean sorry but i think it's stupid to start hate everyone around you 'cause of one stupid woman

    to be honest the focal point of the story was going after a girl, now Baam being overly selfless was his character showing out. As one grows views and ideals change. Say in other shonen like naruto we have seen a big gap but the guys the same as ever, that is soothing in the sense that he is not changed to a pain in the ass but where is the element of maturity and learning from the mistakes and tight spots of life?
    Baam knew no one apart from rachel, now just to ensure her climbing up she sacrificed Baam. Baam before was pretty naive and as the series progressed he had a fair share of increase in maturity its a 5 yrs gap with a tough instance not just emotionally but it also damaged him up pretty much(he was covered with blood).

    If you remember when he addressed Hansung after he came out of the meeting with the guardian he said sth like: if what you claim is up there isnt there you guys better prepare those up there b4 we reach the place.
    he always had a chaotic nuance inside of him, it was just his naiveness and selflessness playing the part because he didnt know better about how greed can corrupt ppl
    now that he knows i am sure we ll see an awesome character with a tincture of his old self coupled with his new improvements of the character

    she was his universe you know, nd she aint stupid she is pragmatic and cold hearted
    i feel the meaning is more like i dont need to vote as i can defeat all of you on my own,

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 82 Discussion/83 Predictions

    What Baam said in chapter 58 was this

    "If Lahal isn't up there then everything there is nothing more than a pile of garbage. No matter what's up there that won't change. You told me I'm strange but to me you're a person that can't find a single thing that's precious in that huge pile of garbage. I don't care what others say, I will climb the tower and if all of you aren't a bunch of lairs, you'd better prepare what I want up there."

    That does not seem to be a naive statement to me, or in any way chaotic On the contrary it's the statement of someone who isn't blinded by promises of wealth or power. That's what makes him so irregular, he sees with eyes unclouded(to quote Princess Mononoke).

    I don't know what his reason is for climbing the tower is now, and it doesn't really matter, but if he allows his vision to be clouded by his experience with Lahel, and stops seeing and caring about the suffering of those around him, he would be no better than everybody else. That would make him vastly less interesting to me because at that point he would be just another climber.

    I personally think that Baam is behind the group since he is climbing on his own in stealth mode.

    Seriously, guys. You can't expect Baam not to change after he has been through with Lahel. I think it's pretty clear that the Prince will have a postive influence on him...
