I completly disagree here. Baam is one of the most stupid character ever created. He can copy techniques but if what Reflejo said about him being created to fight Baam then I doubt our stupid character would have been able to copy his powers or even identify the nature of his powers. Well, I hate this dumb trope in general ~_~ Enemy explaining their powers is dumb on author's part, and it shows author's lack of creativity...Quote:
Aside from when his judgement is clouded concerning his friends, when have we known Baam to be stupid? He was able to locate Beta using Emile when the Workshop guards couldn't. He again managed to use Emile to trick Androssi. He left his pocket with Koon so that he could be found by Wangnan and the others. He managed to surprise Love numerous times during their fight. He instantly recognised what was wrong with Yeon when she was being controlled by that slime thing back at the start of Season 2. Even before entering the tower, he was able to trick Rachel into staying with him for longer using that board game. His instincts appear to be very good, demonstrated by the steel eel fight, and again his shinsoo perception skills are abnormal. Think you're giving him less credit than he deserves.Quote:
So we finally get to see the Traveller again. I wonder how that plotline will unfold with Emile and Cassano. For some reason, I think that they'll all end up at the tournament area with Baam & Co.

Pretty good chapter. Reflejo's more interesting than expected. Despite Koon's claim, Reflejo seems pretty arrogant to me, particularly considering the position he's been forced into after his failures. Curios to see what Koon's plan is.

That's fair enough, but to me there are a variety of ways in which an antagonist can be successful. One way is as you said, to make them likeable to the point where you enjoy whatever panel time they get, but another way for me is to make them dislikeable to the point where you look forward to the moment when the protagonist takes them out and not simply because they have outstayed their welcome like with Beta. Granted FUG as a whole has become a bit of a tiresome plot point but I don't find Reflejo to be too bad of an antagonist.
