Genos alleged death came as a surprise to everyone, fans are wondering if Genos is alive even after getting his core ripped out or dead for real this time?
Cyborg Genos has a bad habit of jumping in between fights but this time, things went very bad for him. After leaping towards awakened Garou, Genos got his heart ripped out and thrown to the ground.
Now Genos is lying on the ground unconscious and maybe even dead. Nothing has been confirmed. But by the expression on Saitama’s face, it can be deduced that Genos is dead for sure this time.
But why will Yusuke Murata, the illustrator for One Punch Man kill an important character like Genos who has been around since the first episode of the One Punch Man anime?
Some fans believe that since Genos is a cyborg, there is still a way to save him and he is not dead yet.
So this brings us back to the question, Is Genos alive or dead after the fight with Garou? There are many theories making rounds on the Internet and today we share them here.
Demon Cyborg Genos Origins
Around 4 years ago when Genos was a 15 years old human boy, a cyborg attacked his town and destroyed everything in sight, even killing his family, but Genos somehow survived.
Luckily, Dr. Kuseno was passing by and saw Genos in a bad state. He asked Dr. Kuseno to turn him into a cyborg and promised him that he will find the cyborg responsible for destroying his town and take revenge one day.
Since then Genos and Dr. Kuseno have been very close and thanks to the doctor, Genos received unparalleled strength and powers due to his new cyborg body and multiple modifications.
Genos Vs Garou: How Did It End?
Genos has always been proud of his strength and overestimates his opponents. The same this time as well in his fight against Garou.
Even when Garou was a normal human, he was able to fend off Genos. Now that Garou has awakened and received powers from GOD, he was able to overpower Genos easily.
According to the One Punch Man Chapter 166 of Yusuke Murata, awakened Garou ripped out Genos core from his body and threw it towards Saitama.
All we see is Genos lying on the ground, there was no last moment or last words spoken shown. So what if Genos is not dead and only unconscious?
Is Genos Alive?
Almost everyone in the fandom wants Genos to make it alive and once again resume his relationship as a disciple with Saitama.
Even though Garou ripped out Genos core, he was not confirmed dead.
Genos has escaped death many times in the series, his limbs have been torn from his body multiple times and he has even tried to self-destruct a few times.
So it is safe to say that Genos could have survived even after getting his core ripped out of his body. According to some theories online, most of the times, an advanced type of Cyborg has multiple cores.
Or a main core and a small backup core hidden somewhere in the body. Dr. Kuseno knows that Genos throws himself into danger often, thus he might have given him a body with multiple cores to increase his strength as well as his chances of survival in dire times.
If Genos has more than one core in his body, then it is safe to say that Genos is alive in the One Punch Man manga.
What are your thoughts about this multiple core theory? One Punch Man Chapter 167 will be out soon and it will be clear if Genos is dead or alive in the manga by Yusuke Murata.
