Gums (ハグキ, Haguki) is a Dragon-level Mysterious Being and an executive member of the Monster Association.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Gums is a large, gluttonous and rotund monster with two arms and two legs. Its head contains no features other than an incredibly large mouth that lacks any lips. Despite having no ears, its presence at the meeting with the other cadres of the Monster Association implies that Gyoro Gyoro can communicate with Gums through unknown means. In the webcomic, he has a more humanoid body shape. When in need of a more powerful bite force, Gums will increase the muscles of its mouth and get a more muscular appearance, including visible veins.

Its size seems to change constantly, from being slightly taller than Homeless Emperor, a human being of presumably average height, to easily fitting the extremely large and tall hero Pig God in his mouth. It is unknown whether Gums can grow in size, aside from when it consumed something, but it appears that Gums can at the very least keep its new size for some time. Even after having regurgitated a prey, Gums was shown to have grown up to twice Pig God's height without any sign of resizing.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Gums appears to be incapable of speech. As it is called into a meeting, it seems to be intelligent enough to understand speech. However, it is incredibly gluttonous and driven by the desire to consume.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Human Monster Saga[edit | edit source]

Monster Association Arc[edit | edit source]

Gums eats some monsters before the battle against the Hero Association.[1] Gums and several other monsters are called by Gyoro Gyoro for a meeting.[2]

Gums sneaks up behind Pig God and swallows him whole, only to have Pig God fight his way back out of Gums' mouth, and the two engage in hand-to-hand combat.[3]

Tatsumaki briefly frees Pig God from the jaws of Gums but the monster shatters her barrier, preventing Pig God from escaping and the battle between the two of them resumes.[4] As their battle continues, Pig God somehow manages to escape Gums as he is seen on the ground with the other heroes.[5]

Bang kills Gums

Later, Gums is seen rising from the rubble and joins up with the other Dragon level monsters to fight Tatsumaki. When Genos attacks Fuhrer Ugly, Gums rips off Genos' arm with his teeth, and Black Sperm assists him. He was killed instantly later on by Bang with the top of his head being ripped off.

Abilities & Powers[edit | edit source]

As a high-ranked member and a Dragon-level Mysterious Being of the Monster Association, Gums is an extremely powerful being. Its abilities are very similar to Pig God's, mostly revolving around brute physical strength and eating and digesting opponents.

Physical Abilities[edit | edit source]

Gums goes toe-to-toe with Pig God

Immense Strength: As a Dragon-level threat, Gums boasts a great strength. It was able to use its huge mouth to chomp through things like metal and debris with ease and swallow Pig God, a hero known for eating monsters, to defeat them.[6] It also appeared to be gaining the upper hand over Pig God in its fight with him.[7] According to Drive Knight, Gums has a bite force capable of crushing heavy machinery.[8] Despite this, he wasn't strong enough to fully bite through Pig God's immense layers of fat.[9] After exerting himself, Gums was able to bite through Tatsumaki's psychic barrier which she created to shield Pig God from the destruction of the Monster Association HQ.[10]

He was also shown to able to rip off Genos' arm with ease, and possibly would have killed him without Silverfang's intervention.

Immense Durability: He was shown to have sustained no damage from his brief tussle with Pig God, a powerful S-Class Hero.[11]

Enhanced Stealth: Despite his bulky and pudgy appearance, Gums was able to sneak up on and take Pig God, an S-Class hero, by surprise.[12]

Elastic Jaws: Gums can stretch open its mouth to inhumanly wide proportions in order to consume large masses such as swallowing the immense Pig God in a single bite.[13]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The design and personality of Gums might be based on Taberu from Makai no Ossan. Both share the same appearance and seem to be unable to speak, the only difference being that Taberu is occasionally seen in a schoolgirl outfit, whereas Gums has nothing to wear.
