I think the youngest possible Liones HK we could have is Zeal? Maybe Pelliot too.

Hmm, it feels intentional that there was focus put on the moon's appearance before the splash page showed our mysterious benefactor.

I can't recall there being a NNT character who was linked to the moon, but we do know that Vamps and Demons get buffed at night.

If the title of the next chapter doesn't refer to Percy, it may be the reappearance of Tristan or Lance. Or it could be a former youngster from NNT who grew up decently strong.
It could be Tristan... Especially if Sin is from Liones.

Since nakaba said the OG seven deadly sins fans should look up for the next chapter (22) so I think it might be an OG character, and since it was an super fast lightening like attack so I assume it might be Gilthunder!!!!

Lancelot did not appear in Nanatsu no Taizai, but rather a oneshot after the series ended, correct?
If the young hero refers to the character who shows up next chapter instead of Percival, and it's likely a citizen of Liones due to Ironside's hatred for that particular kingdom, then it's possible it's Tristan. The attack used by the stranger seems bright, almost resembling light magic in one of the panels just before a monster gets destroyed. But then again, it does not seem to cause the same disintegration Ark does.

Anyway, we'll see. Maybe it's Dreyfus. :lmao

Would Gilthunder qualify as a youngster? He was 21 in NNT so 37 now. And it didn't look like a lightning attack to me.
If it's Gilthunder then the title of the next chapter would just be referring to Percival. Rather than looking at it as a lightning attack think of it as Gil blitzing around while covered in lightning and using his physical strength to demolish the monsters. The house monster is being sliced in half by some kind of energy coming from below him, so it looks more like he was cut than hit by an ordinary projectile.

That said, I think Tristan is the more likely option. As I mentioned earlier, the mystery of the arrow still hasn't been resolved. Tristan in the Arthurian legends is known for using a bow that never misses its target, so he has always been a strong candidate for explaining the arrow. It's possible that it could have just been a gag similar to when Percival accidentally gave Donny a haircut, but I feel like that would have been addressed after the fight if there was nothing more to it.

Hmm, it feels intentional that there was focus put on the moon's appearance before the splash page showed our mysterious benefactor.
Good catch. I have to wonder what the significance of that was. The most straightforward interpretation would be that the mysterious benefactor is somehow connected to the moon, either him powering up because of the moon kind of like a reverse Escanor or the moon itself somehow responding to the benefactor's power. If the benefactor is Tristan then it could also be vaguely hinting at the duality of his existence. Where can you find a better balance of light and dark than during a full moon at midnight? If we instead take those panels more figuratively, then they could simply be visually depicting the tides of the battle turning as the good guys gain more ground.

So the mechanism of Percy's magic is to transform feelings into strength 🧐
There may be more to it since Ironside finds it hard that Hope is all about transforming the feelings into strength, but for now, that is the initial mechanism of his magic.

LOL did he use the Golems like grenades :lmao.
Yeah, Percival is like a jet that is trying to bombard Ironside with his Golem grenade.:XD

Also, the helmet was cut by Percival's attack, not the remaining of the CoED since it didn't even fall into his helmet to beginning with.

I wonder if the magic elements of snake CoED piece will be used again. I remember Meliodas using it one time to scare Oslo, and it seems like this series will have more focus on magic items in general compared to NNT.

Narration huh... I did find the move more similar to Invasion than anything but still, even if it was, Gowther himself isn't young and more importantly he is too strong to appear here?

I think he did.

Nope that ain't Deathpierce....
literally my first thought on the face reveal as well..lmao
--- Double Post Merged, , Original Post Date: ---

Summary:

Ironside didn't even notice him as he was no more than a stone on the roadside.
That's exactly what DK told mel what he thinks of others before their final fight..lol

One of these pieces falls on Ironside's helmet that breaks into two, revealing the knight's face.
I don't think that's what broke it...just a fragment falling...in the double panel where he attacks CoED ..u can see he actually slashes along Ironside in half as well..

it really feels like that since there were other panels in previous few chps in this arc where it solely focuses on the darkened moon

As of now, Percy's ability is based on two grounds: one is "conceptual", the other is "physical / practical".
- The conceptual aspect of his ability is that he turns the positive feelings of those surrounding him into pure strength (it is similar in this regard to how the Sun amplifies the strength of its users during Day time).
- The physical / practical aspect of "Hope" can be seen in that green, malleable energy/matter and how it can take whatever shape Percival pictures in his mind. It is kinda similar to the "Green Lantern" in this regard:

It looks like aged Gilthunder to me, but we know he isn't...however, his design makes me rule Gil out of the selection of possible guest appearances...besides, Gil's blitzing with the help of his ability looks zig-zaggy, to match its theme.
Ngl Ironside looks somewhat like Hendrickson
Meh, to me he looks like middle-aged Gil...and since he's supposedly Percy's biological father( for some reason I kinda doubt it), shouldn't he also look like a younger Demon Joke?
So the mechanism of Percy's magic is to transform feelings into strength 🧐
Nakaba and Mashima went out for drinks again :heh
Percival can also coat his teammates in his magic. So while he gets boosted by their hope in him, this will also lead to them being physically protected and regenerated by his magic.

Hoping this leads to some good teamwork between Percival and the other 4KoA.
You forgot the convenient indirect Mel style ecchi style fanservice.
Would Gilthunder qualify as a youngster? He was 21 in NNT so 37 now. And it didn't look like a lightning attack to me.
As a regular human he should look just like Ironside, or at least as old as DP, since you guys can't stop thinking of him :cheez
Maybe it's Dreyfus.
Shut up, Vivian! If it was your beau, he would've played whack-a-mole with the monsters.:XD
Hey, a return of the narration. It's Gowther's time to shine.
You forced my brain to read that part in his seiyu's voice.
Gowther himself isn't young
What do you mean?! Gowther is Forever Young🎶

My money is on Tristan showing up, we can try and check if it's Ark, but it's not necessary if Tristan himself has a main ability that has already combined Ark and PoD into something else.

And I really have this itch to call Nakaba out on hist typically weird fanservice ways...really, a mini-Percy has to support Anne's crotch?!? I do remember Meliodas clinging to Elizabeth's inner thigh, but this one is new ...and ewww.

I like how his companions aren't useless but help him in an intelligent way, Anne helped him to not get tricked by his lies, Nasiens's poison helped at dulling the precision of his movement, and finally, Donny helped to lift the coffin without being noticed by Ironside and it is so believable because he is indeed a fodder to him and he was focused on Percival's elimination alone.

And finally, Percival managed to separate the CoED (and cutting his helmet) while playing like a jet, I also like that despises his power-up, he wasn't still a match for Ironside in a frontal confrontation. He just gained the ability to fly this time, that is it.

Nice team effort. Each one of them played his role nicely.

Let's "hope" pun intended that Percival can become as OP as Green Lantern but in a reasonable way. He is similar to him now that I think about it, you are right.

The prophecy might be in right..i mean..the knights born after arthur awakened as king of chaos....and percy is showing powers somewhat similar to as manifestation of stuff with his magic and another aspect being of dark and light which has resulted in Tristan ....they could be be something that is born to oppose the chaos....like the original chaos created his children who opposed him...maybe it's a unconscious thing bound to happen whenever chaos is active..

Or a young version of Varghese, they are indeed Father and Son.

His look makes sense in a way.

If Percival was a HxH character, his nen classification will be easily specialization, he is a specialist in the HxH context.

I wonder how Tristan's magic will look like, I hope he has a Unique magic ability specific to him like Percival besides the usual light/darkness natural attribute from his parents.
