I often find myself wishing a character in an anime could do "just a little more" -- in some cases .. a lot more -- than they can as currently shown in their respective anime.

As a result, I often fantasize about how cool it would be if they could just "do XXXX too"..

It's a delicate matter, in my mind, because I don't want to make every single character invincible. But, wouldn't it be great if XXX side character had XXX skill, so that XXX didn't have to die?

I decided to post this topic because I actually saw it happening in the last half dozen episodes of "Naruto: Shippuden" with Obito Uchiha stacking in skill after skill to his new super beast form... (don't want to go into more spoiler detail than that.)

Here's my example of one I thought of and wished for just today:

So, I was watching Episode 2 of "Terra Formars", a scene depicting two girls walking into the shower to see a woman with Grand Teton Oppai. Light discussion, and they disperse... *sigh*

Wouldn't it have been awesome for the woman to have had the "Yuri Oppai Fondling" skill .. nay .. super power! ..found in many ecchi shows? ... those girls wouldn't know what hit 'em until the fan-service complete flag went up.

What would you add to whom?

And .. What would the result be for?

If Tatsumi could dance, Night Raid could become the next idol group.


Instead of graduations, everyone just gets replaced when they die.

Kira "Jesus" Yamato could use some skills as a pilot. That way he wouldn't have to resort to his signature beam spam or miracle revivals. The fights in SEED would've been much more fun to watch.

I get the feeling that a lot of characters could use either the nerf bat skill, or the ban hammer skill.

Plot armor OP? Whack 'em with the nerf bat, and watch them actually die!

Gary Stu MC? Ban hammer 'em out of the anime and let the rest of the cast get meaningful development as they grow to do what Gary Stu would shrug off without conflict.

↓ Did we just post at the same time?

It's more that his character is completely subsumed by rage and a need for vengeance. The story works better if you go with the main trio being three aspects of an average person. They really do break down into brain/body/heart(filled with rage!!) very well.

There are a number of shounen heroes that I would like to get some intelligence. Naruto would have been an awesome trickster type character, but that didn't happen. At least Goku realized he wasn't a mental power house and delegated thinking to Piccolo. It's why Ed Elric made me happy. He was a big eater, overreacting shounen protagonist that was intelligent.

I sort of wish Lelouch had used a less extreme example at a critical moment.

And maybe that is why Eren annoys me.

I feel like this is directed at Shinji-type characters.
