Why did Zamasu choose black?

Post by Captain Strawberry » Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:37 am

Just a fun topic, not really overthinking.

Other than to represent to the viewer Yami Goku or Dark Goku (Goku Black).

The colour black can be a contrast to the color white. White can be used to represent purity and black can be the opposite, Zamasu is bearing the sins of Humanity and the embodiment, using Goku's body as like the sins manifesting and as like what goes around, comes around kinda thing.

Thoughts?

Maybe he was trying to make a statement that he was sullying his hands as a god by taking on a mortal form to eradicate the very beings he considers filth? Or possibly that no representation is evil when wielded by a god?

No, "Goku is the new black". LOL TFS!

Probably because black is a color commonly associated with evil beings and Zamasu knows that he needs evil's power to purge evil. Basically, "It takes a thief".

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

To represent his brooding, emo and anti-establishment personality.
