I agree with this assessment. Its not much a criticism. But at the same time while it would be cool to see magic like illusions and such, Moro isn't the villain for that. Thats more suited for a different wizard, or maybe for if they canonize Janemba, but not Moro.TKA wrote: ↑Tue Jul 23, 2019 6:58 pm
Again, I think it's perfectly okay to want to see him pull out a necronomicon and start doing weird spells, hexes, and so on.
But, also again, I don't think when discussing the quality of the arc that can be levied as a valid criticism. It isn't. If someone in the story said "Wow, that Moro guy Daikoshin beat sure had a bunch of wacky, crazy spells," then it would be a valid critique. But since the day he's been introduced until now, it's his ability to absorb energy that has been the focus.
He presents a unique threat to the main characters, and their typical modus operandi (power up, beat up villain) actively doesn't work against him since he just absorbs their power.
A unique threat is one of the most important things you can ask of any villain, but especially a villain of a long-running series.
I think that fluffing up Moro with a very large assortment of spells wouldn't add anything to the story besides flashy cool techniques. Not to mention it takes away the dangerous nature of his absorption magic if he has the ability to create illusions. And I feel confident to say that if he had illusion magic instead of absorption magic, he would have been defeated the first time Vegeta fought him.
Its ok to want more interesting magic, I just don't think Moro is the magic user to do this with.
