Yay I am getting buffed again with more fictional powers. In the last post I hinted that I would tackle Beyblade next. Upon researching though I found that there is so much to Beyblade. It has a active competitive scene, people talking about parts, set up etc. While I could make a dumbed down variant based on the anime I feel like it might snuff out someone’s hobby so for now I tend to not do it. The Holy Mailman suggest Soul Eater to me, and now he is stuck with me!
Human (With Demon Weapon Ancestry)
Great Sword Master with Utility Master traits
Claiming to be younger than John when clearly she is not
Otaku, Weebspeak, Pegasister, Cute Freak ,Claims to be from another world
Soul Eater did not have any particular naming conventions, though last names seem to reflect where a character is from. Liefmans is Dutch and Belgian surname which one could basically take as “Sweet Person” Which would fit the character well NB It’s not my real last name. Her age would be slightly but noticeably older than whoever would be the main character. So say if we place her in the original series she would most likely be 18 or 19 with John her partner being around Maka her age. Pinkie and John would be a form of comical side characters but not like Jarjar or even Excalibur. The episodes she would appear in she would take a very prominent role. Pinkie is a very detached character not having much ties to this world, even claiming she is not from there at times. Claiming she was Isekaid whatever that may mean. She speaks in odd ways, clearly drawn to all things cute. She would be seen in episodes because she happened to chase a cute puppy around town trying to pet it, or if the main heroes get a task that involves interacting with a cute life form she would force herself into involvement.
Pinkie hates to be lady or woman instead of girl even though in most scenarios we put her in she would be a mature/ish woman. She and her partner John would work as a sort of counter-weight for the normal Meister/Demon Weapon Partnership. Where Maka and Soul and Black Star Tsubaki can argue outside of combat mostly and have this polarised relationship, Pinkie is very much in sync with John in their free time. So much so their wavelength resonance stems from that. Yet more in the wavelength later. John uses the same weeb-speak out of combat. Their antics would involve fourth wall breaking adventures such as picking up a dirty novel and John then mimicking Kakashi and Pinkie forcefully launching herself with an anime nosebleed when she sees a pretty girl. Seemingly aware they are characters or at least enjoying and ridiculing some anime tropes. Very much in sync about that.
In combat though their demeanour changes with Pinkie very much not liking the look of her blade. It should look cuter, so when battle begins she usually starts with decorating the Great Sword first. Pinkie carries plenty of purses filled with cute stuff like glitters and ribbons alongside her. Outside of combat she tries to decorate John, a bit in the hope it would mean he would shift into a more cute weapon as well. He gently brushes all these decorations off before she can get very far, so she oftenly results to trickery in an attempt to decorate him. Like using explosive gift boxes to cover him in glitter or trying to drug him so she can decorate him in his sleep. However they have been traveling together for a while he knows her trough and trough so these attempts never succeed and are often turned against her.
While very whimsical Pinkie is incredibly sharp of mind and can analyse characters very quickly and she has shown great adeptness for manipulation. Though seemingly genuine in her attempt to befriend people she never really ends up worse off. She joins a mission and somehow ends up sharing the reward, she asks you to fight with her so she can get a cute ribbon, even if she just dances with you she always seems to gain.. when asking her she just claims “Friendship is Magic”. Pinkie would rather befriend people than fight them. Claiming that if she befriends 99 evil souls it will be way easier and they wont leave. She is also very adapt in telling peoples motives and emotions. This can backfire creating socially-awkward situations when she blurts out the two main characters or others are romantically interested in each other, or if she catches characters hiding things.
Pinkie’s Unique wavelength is the Pinkoro wavelength. Unlike other wavelengths it allows Pinkie to let others adapt onto her wavelength. In a way she is a counterpart to Kilik Rung who can jump onto other wavelengths to use multiple weapons. Pinkie’s wavelength stems from friendship by befriending other Demon Weapons she can use them in combat as long as there is an emotional need from the Weapon to assist Pinkie. Pinkokoro is called the adaptive wavelength which as Pinkie often points out is a half truth. More so than the other way around it allows others to mimic this wavelength momentarily. This results in Pinkie easily having won a tournament. Rather than win it fair and square though she simply befriended all the weapons of the opponents than made them synchronise with her.. rather than their meister, effectively rendering them powerless.
People question what she could do should she turn evil or betray them but Pinkie always susses these talks telling that if she was evil they would not be friends anymore and it would not work. She just used the power so less people would get hurt during a spar. However since Pinkie likes cute things she actively tries to steer away from weapons she thinks are not cute. For example when interacting with Tsubaki she would act super sweet, even flirty at times , same would go for the Thompsons, however she would show very little interest in Soul even trying to act Tsundere like against him though she clearly is bad at mistreating people and does not mean it. She just doesn’t want “another ugly weapon but would rather have a Kawaii one”
John Howitzer is a hybrid between a typical american army man and an edgy teen. He keeps coming up with code names for Pinkie and himself and mostly those of himself can grow pretty edgy. “Pinkie for this Mission your handle will be Duckling.. and I will be Crimson Toxic Mist!’ In his human form he much like Pinkie can act pretty geekily. Very akin to the pink lady he seems to be aware he is a character or at least he tests out tropes.. using “this new body” to put Death the Kid to shame. Death the Kid and him would have a bit of a rivalry going on at times not getting along to well. Where Pinkie wants to make things cuter, John likes to put skulls on everything or paint stuff black. The two seem to have no trouble sharing though with John most of the time willing to part with some findings if Pinkie really wants it. At times Pinkie shows the same sentiment by acting like she doesnt want particular items. They always seem to be trying to collect stuff or find a way home.
As a weapon John turns into a Eldritch looking like sword equipped with some military tech. His demeanour changes very much. His Goth persona fades away and the military trades take over. His lingo shift to full on Military speech. Pinkie “Bogeys at 3 O’Clock’ “Enemy encampment detected five clicks from here’ This confuses Pinkie as she becomes unable to understand him so in time their wavelength will desync. As a pair they have a timer. In return for this timer John as a sword holds incredible power. As a sword he is very capable of letting Pinkie use the combat style of Instantaneous Maximum Fire Power. A way to reflect their Isekai’d fighter gimmick However throughout the show it never really becomes clear if they actually stem from another world or not in fact there is proof for the opposite.
John as a Sword akin to a One Punch Man in the Soul Eater universe. Whatever he hits dies. However by the time that Pinkie has decorated enough so she is confident it looks cute enough to strike with some time will have past, usually near their deadline before they fall out of sync. As a result the fights they are in usually end up having the main characters fight stuff they can not defeat and defend the pair until their setup is complete. To offer them another way of fighting. Changing up the rules. Action would still be focused on the main characters however they would fight to stall out their opponent often against superior force. A twist which works well with John’s wavelength… much to complication of his Meisters set up.
Like Pinkie John is part of the Pinkokoro wavelength so much like Pinkie he can convince fighters to move into his wavelength. However since John mostly does this from the desire to protect, when he syncs up with other people he becomes a shield. A super could light glowing shield.. almost akin to how the Green Lantern would be able to conjure up as a light construct not having the time to properly manifest. After a hit has been taken by John and the immediate danger is gone he reverts back and Pinkie has to start all over glamping him up again. Usually moping she wanted a cute looking thing like that.
Aside from John’s technique Pinkie comes with a few powers of her own. These come in the following forms
Super Soul Perception
Pinkie’s wavelength made it easy for her to master this technique. Because she is aware of wavelength changes she is very much aware of how other souls works and uses this as one of her big assets. Lie detection is something she seems to have instinctively and given how John’s abilities work people also assume together they can negate a witches soul protect. Usually to be able to do this Pinkie has to at least converse with the person or observe them for a bit though.. claiming she can then understand their soul. To get the base knowledge of the soul she can do as simple things as offer someone a choice between two pieces of candy or asking them for a small story.
Pinkie’s Meister Techniques are almost all non combative, when wielding other Weapons she clearly is not as capable as their usual Meister, having more openings and less accuracy in return for a damage boost. Which she calls the Isekai gene. She posseses great physical strength that she treats with some form of obliviousness. She can lift boulders and heavy weaponry with ease, she doesn’t seem aware of what is normal weight to be able to lift. She can wield the great sword John with one hand while decorating with the other. While lacking combat Finesse she is skilled at dodging and is even able to decorate her sword while dodging. Defensively she is lacking though mostly due to being pre-engaged with her sword. While she has no problem dodging on command her environmental awareness is lackluster. She does seem to be very durable though, claiming this sort of stuff happens a lot and she hardened up.
Pinkie does seem to be able to turn into a weapon, much like Maka there does seem to be an ancestor in her bloodline who was an Weapon which would seem to invalidate her claim from being from another world. While Pinkie doesn’t show her full weapon form it will incur when she sustains enough damage to not look cute anymore. Desyncing with John before they could finish it off she would get knocked out.. or seemingly so.. instinctively getting back up again growling about not being cute spiky but pink spiky protrusions can be seen forming.. possibly indicating that she is a mace or something like that. In her hybrid form she just slams herself into her opponent with great speeds, losing the abilities that come with Super Soul Perception and instead gaining a blind rage that make her seem impervious to pain.
While certainly overpowered, Pinkie’s Set-Up would offer interesting scenario’s for a main cast to work around. Forcing them more into protective, and distracting fighting scenario’s. Combining some tropes into a character that is both cute and frighting and who seems quite off, without explanation.
Her and John’s super friendly behavior out of combat would also offer a nice role reversal. Keeping the concept of Pinkie throughout these anime power series cohesive troughout the series.
So would you be a Meister or a Weapon? Let me know!
