ITT: Biggest asspulls in manga/anime history
>>
GER wasn't an asspull.

The arrow was shown to grant additional powers all the way in Part 4, with Kira.

It was also shown to create requiem stands with Silver Chariot previously.

GER was just bullshit garbage writing because it's just ridiculously OP and has no restrictions, but it's not an asspull.
>>
>>121301156
It's an asspull because an item that gives random powers to stands gave it the exact ability necessary to beat the main villain.
>>
>>121301710
Except it didn't. It just gave him generic OP powers. He just applied those powers to specifically counter KC, not the other way around.

Besides even if it was specifically tailored to counter King Crimson, it still wouldn't be an asspull.
Otherwise, getting powers as a whole would be an asspull. Stands, hamon, a random nigger being able to punch, everything. They're all shit that comes out of nowhere.

GER is shit writing, but it's not an asspull.

But it was already established that for the second time the arrow would give the Stand user what they needed most at the moment. Such as Kira getting the ability that made it so he could live a quiet life while also killing.

To be fair though, we already heard like a year prior to this that the author had no idea how the hell they would be able to beat him.

Nice to see OP saying GER is an asspull but nothing about Battle Tendency's ending. Hell, even Tusk Act IV was an asspull
>>
>>121303050
Everything past Death City Robo was kind of a letdown. That scene in particular didn't feel like too much of an asspull, as much as the writers looking at the original FMA series, thinking 'we can do that' and not actually managing it.

that might be viable if it only had the ability to beat diavolo, but it beats fucking everything.

It knows how stupid it is and just rolls with it.
>>
Jotaro being able to stop time with Star Platinum was an asspull, as cool as it was.

I don't think it was hinted at the idea of being able to gain such a power once.
>>
>>121305328
Been a while, but they state early on that The World and Star Platinum are 'connected' somehow, so it is set up, just not stated very clearly.
>>
>>121305328

>>121305353
Especially how their the EXACT same-type of Stand.

It was bound to happen that they would have similar abilities.

The World's power is the ability to copy every Joestar Stand. That's why he was able to use Hermit Purple too.

Not even the biggest asspull in Jojo.
>>
>>121306883
To be fair, the seventh sense comes from Buddhism. Nevertheless, I doubt Fairy Tail's author did the research so it's probably a SS reference
>>

He didn't survive a nuke. Watch it again or find a wikia article or something.

>>121306896
D4C, that's all there is to it. Someone who can defeat Johnny was needed.

Yusuke's demon blood being the means by which he beat Sensui, having previously not been hinted at in any meaningful way once prior.
>>
>>121303670
That was foreshadowed so many times to be an asspull.
>>
>>121307475
Mate, there was an explanation for it. Not the best but it explained some crap.

Sasuke surviving his fight with Deidara by doing so much bullshit in an instant.

Are you serious? When does he ever use fucking Purple Hermit?

The world could also stop time, jonathan's body had hermit purple.

Stands reside in bodies, not souls, which was shown in part 6 (and part 3 without explanation)
>>
>>121308456

But the entire business with Requiem in Part V contradicts this.
>>
>>121300700
Even though it was explained, Caliburn taking 7 lives was fucking bullshit

>>121308456
>Stands in bodies, not soul
>Jonathan's body having a Stand with the -exact same- appearance and ability as Joseph
I don't buy it.
>>
>Not Joseph's magic volcano

Step it up, OP. That was out of fucking nowhere because Araki couldn't even use LisaLisa properly.
>>
>>121308583
What do you mean by that? Polnareff was "dead" and definitely without a body when he got stuck into the turtle. I'm not even sure if silver chariot req was his stand after requiemed anymore.
>>
>>121308688

Not that. The fact that people switched bodies and used their own stands instead of the one "belonging" to body they were residing in. Or am I misunderstanding you?
>>
>>121308688
I think he means everyone's Stands carried over to their new bodies when they changed, meaning Stands reside in the soul.
>>
>>121303670
Super Saiyan 3 is probably the most out of nowhere power-up. It doesn't even accomplish much.
>>
>>121308731
>>121308752
Oh, I don't know, I feel like that part was really poorly translated (as most of part 5 was) and isn't a great example since it was a stand ability, and not the natural order. Part 6 contradicts that, but I guess that was also partially a stand ability.
>>
>>121308807
Also the ugliest form
