As his name suggests, Withered Sprout resembled a humanoid version of a bean sprout. He was quite short and skinny, with thin arms and legs, and had an overall weak appearance.
Withered Sprout acted weak in order to trick heroes into thinking that they could easily defeat him. He acted timidly, but showed his true personality once he had shown his true power. His true personality was being intent on killing heroes and using sneak attacks to defeat them, displaying a rather pathetic and cowardly side to him. He would lie in order to get heroes by surprise.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
Withered Sprout is seen in Z-City when the Surly Brothers show up. Withered Sprout pretends to be scared and was attacked by one of Angry Man's attacks, but quickly freezes him. Withered Sprout still acts weak, but manages to defeat Crying Man and Smile Man. Saitama later passes by and Withered Sprouts acts weak, but uses a sneak attack on him. After Saitama easily breaks his glaciers, he attacks him again only to be killed by Saitama's punch.
Abilities and PowerEdit
