Overview

Beast King (獣王 Jūō) was an artificial mutant created by Dr. Genus of the House of Evolution. He was the leader of Dr. Genus' strike force and was the second-strongest creation of the House of Evolution, exceeded only by Carnage Kabuto. He was killed by Saitama.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Beast King was a large humanoid lion with a full mane and tail. His humanoid, five-digit hands had sharp claws and padded four-toed feet.

He wore a black shirt, animal furs on his shoulders, and a leopard-skin cloth around his waist, secured by heavy chains and a belt with a lion-head buckle. There were bracelets on both his wrists and ankles and bracers on both biceps, which he breaks and shatters once enraged.

PersonalityEdit

Beast King spoke very loudly, roaring, and shouting constantly. Beast King was confident in his power and became increasingly frustrated with Saitama's inexplicable strength and lack of fear.

Beast King had little regard for his fellow mutants, dismissing his killings of Slugerous and Frog Man as the "law of the jungle."[3]

In the anime, Beast king also shows a level of patience, as when Saitama was cleaning out his belt, he calmly waited until Saitama cleaned out his belt to fight.

PlotEdit

Introduction SagaEdit

House of Evolution ArcEdit

After witnessing Saitama instantly kill Mosquito Girl, Dr. Genus takes great interest in him as a human specimen, and sends Beast King, Armored Gorilla, Kamakyuri, Ground Dragon, Frog Man, and Slugerous to abduct him for further research.[4]

Saitama defeats Kamakyuri, Frog Man, and Slugerous in a failed ambush, but is grabbed and rooted in concrete by Ground Dragon. While Armored Gorilla repels Genos, Beast King taunts Saitama, threatening to scratch out his eyes. Unfazed, Saitama casually frees himself, sending Beast King into a limb-cutting frenzy.[5] He manages to accidentally kill Slugerous and Frog Man, but even after augmenting his strength, he is disemboweled by a flurry of punches from Saitama.[6]

Beast King's death prompts Ground Dragon to flee and shatters Armored Gorilla's confidence, thus causing him to bargain with Genos and Saitama for his life.[7]

Sometime after his death, a flock of birds descends to pick at his entrails, causing them to sprout arms and become ravenous.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Despite not harming Saitama, Beast King demonstrated immense strength, chiefly through murdering his teammates and inflicting massive collateral damage to the environment. He was also called the second strongest member of the House of Evolution by Armored Gorilla, who stated that the Beast King could easily destroy Genos.[9]
