I wonder how one can read the manga and even compare Orochi to Boros. When Saitama was fighting Boros, he viewed him as strong from the get-go. Hell when he was sent to space, he viewed his battle with Boros as "almost a real fight" and that was before their finisher moves
When he was expecting nothing with Orochi, who ended up one punched by a normal punch
Phrased it badly. The fight was over at that time.
Haven't caught up to the manga yet. The last chapter I read was Tatsu flipping the base, so I'll withhold judgment on the merged Orochi. But it still doesn't change the fact that he was below Boros by feats and portrayal. And will more likely than not be below him even in the merged version.
I don’t think WC spoilers should be avoided unless stated otherwise. It’s a canon source lol. Though once the manga completes the current arc the webtoon should be discarded entirely. Manga will have way more buffs.
This is the equivalent of Ndule saying Whitebeard defeated Akainu lol. Orochi for a fact was not defeated by Saitama though I’ll grant you Orochi was clearly terrified Of him.
Outside of his planet buster, Boros was never portrayed as stronger than Orochi in the manga. If Saitama didn’t sympathize with Boros’ desire to have an exhilarating fight, Boros would’ve been smashed pretty severely.
No, GS is quite literally the last resort monster for the association, he’s going to appear after Psykos/Orochi get defeated and if Garou hadn’t intervened he would’ve slaughtered the heroes by himself.
Even if Orochi was a bit stronger, nothing changes, his martial art skill is nowhere near Garou, it’s going to be irrelevant. They’re all low diff material for Boros individually.
Tatsumaki will be heavily wounded by Psykorochi, and all the other heroes joining in might be what it takes for Tats to win. Nothing implies that GS is stronger than Orochi just because he appears later. Using this logic, Fuhrer Ugly is also stronger since he won’t show his transformation until after Orochi is defeated
In the wc she got wounded when she got gangbanged by the dragon level threats, i doubt that will change too much. Now, even while injured she’s still far superior to the other heroes that were at the scene, yet GS shat her out effortlessly.
GS is the last standing monster that Mask didn’t think they could beat even if they teamed up on him, Tatsumaki was included. I difn’t say he’s stronger than Orochi, they’re comparable as of now, and a Boros level fighter shat on him neg diff.
Murata practically stated that Tats will get heavily wounded by Orochi, and it’s implied that she can’t use her powers nearly as well while injured since ONE stated that she would beat GS if she was healthy. Meteoric Burst Boros is the one that’s comparable to Garou, not Released Boros
