Overview

Psykos (サイコス, Saikosu) is an esper, the military adviser of the Monster Association, and a former friend of Fubuki. She is one of the main antagonists of the Monster Association Arc.

AppearanceEdit

Psykos has a slender and curvaceous figure. She has long aqua-blue wavy hair and emerald-green eyes. She typically wears glasses.

Psykos's meat puppet, Gyoro Gyoro, appears as a large slug-like monster with a single eye, with no visible facial orifice and eight arms protruding through its head. it has four main arms, stubby legs, three toe feet, and a fat circular body, which is green in the manga and pink in the anime.

During high school, Psykos had braces, which made her mouth puckered. She also wore larger and rounder glasses and had freckles.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Equally as manipulative as she is cunning, Psykos also often schemes and plots around the other members of the Monster Association geared towards experimental needs.[3] She played Rhino Wrestler for a fool by sending the lower-level monster against opponents he had no hope against during the heroes' invasion for scientific curiosity.[4] Psykos is also quite arrogant, sadistic, and volatile.

Before succumbing to madness by the future she had foreseen, she used to be a clumsy person and showed great respect toward her former friend, Fubuki.

Psykos is ambitious, continuously working to expand Fubuki's influence in her youth and the power of the Monster Association in the present day. She is also very mischievous, as she enjoys playing sadistic games with the Hero Association staff.[5] Being very calculating, she takes into consideration the compatibility of each battle.[6]

However, at the same time, she is merciless to her subordinates who fail to match her expectations with very few to no real exceptions.

She also carries an incredibly dim view of humans, despite being one herself, stating in derogatory terms that they only take up space and accomplish naught but squandering everything they get their hands on.[7] This is where the respect she harbored for Fubuki was shattered after her mentor crippled her powers. Despite this resentment for her former superior, she still withholds some underlying longing for her fellow esper's acknowledgment.

One of her overarching personality traits stems from her all-consuming hatred of humankind and all of their works, which came about when Psykos peered into the future of mankind.


Abilities and PowersEdit

As a high-ranked member and a Dragon-level threat of the Monster Association, Psykos is an extremely powerful being. She is shown to be very powerful as an Esper, but not very skilled. Garou has commented she can't perform more than one action at the same time when using Telekinesis. After merging with Orochi, her psychic power increases exponentially, allowing her to contend with Tatsumaki and seriously harm the esper, although Tatsumaki reveals she was holding back because Tareo's safety wasn't secured.[8]

Supernatural AbilitiesEdit

Psychokinesis: Psykos is a powerful esper. Her psychic output surpasses Fubuki[9] but is inferior to Tatsumaki's. She can send out psychic signals to her colleagues from over great distances, as well as remotely control Gyoro Gyoro from 1500 meters underground.[10] When her power is amplified by her Elixir, Psykos can break free of Tatsumaki's restraints and drag her down from a large distance even as she is being dragged upwards herself.[11]

She was also able to immobilize Bang long enough for Homeless Emperor to attack him.[12]

Energy Projection: Psykos can shoot powerful energy beams from her eyes.[13]

Spy Drones: Psykos created and could control several spy drones that are shaped in the image of Gyoro Gyoro and can communicate through them. These spy drones could possess wings to fly a great distance, or be planted as stationary viewpoints like security cameras.

Telepathy (テレパシー, Terepashī): Psykos uses telepathy to communicate with others. She uses this, as Gyoro Gyoro, to tell Garou to wait while sorting out disputes among the monsters.[14]

Clairvoyance: Psykos has the ability to see into the future. This ability is called the "Third Eye."[15]

Miscellaneous AbilitiesEdit

Monster Transformation Stimulation: Psykos claims that she can stimulate growth in humans and turn some of them into exceptionally powerful monsters, like in the case of Orochi. Gyoro Gyoro's method is unknown in detail, but it can be assumed to be similar to the phenomenon of abnormal cellular reactions that normally transform some humans into monsters, without the Monster Cell.

Evaluation: Psykos is able to analyze any individual's power. How she evaluates people's power is unknown, but she is the one responsible for evaluating the disaster level of the Monster Association's members. She was also able to measure Garou's exceptional growth after re-encountering him after he is fought against Overgrown Rover, unlike previous monsters who underestimated Garou despite his feats.[16]

Fighting StyleEdit

Master Psychic Combatant: Psykos is a very powerful esper.

Warning The following section contains original webcomic spoilers. Expand to see spoiler content.

However, she still has less experience and expertise than Fubuki and Tatsumaki, which is why she lost to Fubuki even though she had a greater psychic output.

  • Psychic Binding (念動金縛り, Nen-dō Kanashibari): An ability used to suppress the power of another esper.
  • Super Gravity Waves (重力超激浪, Juuyouku Chōgekirō): Psykos multiplies the gravity around a certain area to crush her opponent. After merging with Orochi, her ability to multiply gravity increases to the point that even Tatsumaki struggles with the increased gravity.
    • Gravity Times 300 (重力300倍, Jūryoku 300-bai): Psykos increases the gravity of an area by 300 times.[17]

EquipmentEdit

Elixir

Psykos uses the Elixir to increase her power.

  • Elixir: Psykos managed to create an elixir that increases her psychic power, which she consumes to fight against Tatsumaki.

Fusion with OrochiEdit

After barely surviving his battle with Saitama, Orochi uses his absorption ability to regenerate his body. He absorbs his master Psykos; however, Psykos resists complete assimilation and the two merge into one, both switching control of their shared body as they fight. They are strong enough to injure Tatsumaki and force her to get serious.[18]

The fusion of Psykos and Orochi traps Tatsumaki

  • Power Incorporation: Orochi can incorporate other's powers with his assimilation ability. These powers are then increased according to Orochi's own strength.
  • Psychokinesis: Psykos's psychokinesis is greatly amplified by Orochi's power. When their barrier clashes with Tatsumaki's, Tatsumaki is genuinely surprised at how hard it is. They can even usurp Tatsumaki's control of her barrier and turn it inside out, causing Tatsumaki's power to work against her.
    • Gravity Manipulation: This fusion can manipulate gravity.
  • Shapeshifting: This fusion can shapeshift it's horns into an enormous avatar of Psykos.
    • Tendril Generation: This fusion is able to extend its fingers into large spears.

QuotesEdit

  • "Bear witness to the one whom Gyoro Gyoro can’t begin to compare with, Lord Psykos and her terrifying psychokinesis!"
Warning The following section contains original webcomic spoilers. Expand to see spoiler content.
  • "It's pointless! No, there's no point in taking over the world! All these Homo sapiens know to do is eat, shit, mate, and reproduce! You cannot unite them! They are a bunch of food wasting vermin! Even below that! There's no honor in ruling over the human race! They'd be better off reduced to zero! They must be destroyed! There's no choice but to destroy them! This is my mission! It is time the chosen ones eradicate these Homo sapiens!"
