Powers & Abilities Vergo is inspired by the immortal figure and legendary Vietnamese soldier Saint Going

#1
For those who still don't think Vergo-San is special, what if I told you he is based on an immortal cult figure and legendary soldier in Vietnamese folklore?

One such story relates to a couple living in a small village in the countryside. Even though they had been married for many years, they had no children and the wife had never fallen pregnant. One day, when she went to the fields to work, she saw a huge footprint in the ground. I was enormous and she put her foot in the footprint to see how many times her own foot would fit into it.


The following day, she discovered that she was pregnant. However, the baby did not arrive in 9 months but after twelve months she had a baby boy. He grew up strong but neither spoke, laughed or cried. He neither responded to his parents or the other children in the village.


When the boy was just 3 years old, the country was invaded and all the villages were destroyed. The King sought help from the people to form an army and the boy spoke for the first time, telling his mother that he wanted to join the army. His mother called the King’s messenger to the house after she recovered from the surprise of hearing him speak. The young boy told the messenger to tell the King that if he gave him an iron horse, stick and armour, (see Iron body) he would drive the invaders away.


The messenger returned to the King and gave him the message. The things were prepared but in the meanwhile he ate a great deal and outgrew his clothes. Neighbours brought him more food and new clothes; he looked like a 20- year-old. The messenger returned with the things the boy requested and he rode away to battle. He attacked and used his iron stick until it broke while his horse breathed fire on the enemy. He pulled up a bamboo tree to continue the fight.


The enemy retreated to its homeland while the boy and his horse went to the top of a mountain known as Soc. He bowed to his parents and all the villagers before riding his horse up to heaven and was never seen again. Bamboo now has yellow stripes to represent the fire that the horse blew and ponds are regarded as the marks of the horse’s hooves. The village where the boy was born is called Saint Giong.


Saint Giong is one of the four immortals, four cult figures worshipped by the Vietnamese people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Four_Immortals

This video explains in detail how Trebol and Pica are based on two of these figures to further soldiify this connection

As we also should know by now, Vergo is a former Germa Soldier, and this video by a native japanes person goes on to explain why this is so. Remember Saint Going as a boy not smiling, laughing or talking (just like Germa soldiers)? The army that was attacking Saint Going's village was from the north (see Germa originates from North Blue)

Also check out this theory of mine as it relates to his inspiration where his kicking of Sanji is very much similar to the scenes in Undisputed 3 where Boyka broke the leg of his opponent with his own broken shin. https://worstgen.alwaysdata.net/for...tist-and-action-actor-star-scott-adkins.5416/

Boyka + Saint Going = Vergo :cheers: Vergo is the freaking man, folks
