Best part.

Ah that's what the rock was for.

Kinda reminds me of how vacuum salesmen will try to show off how good their vacuum cleaner is by vacuuming up a steel ball.

It's nice that you have that much brute force, but it isn't really the point. The point is, will you be able to deal with the weird shit that shows up when you're actually doing your job? Things like... lint in the carpet, or fireball-throwing bandits riding pigs.

This is what I was hoping for this chapter, an actual demonstration of skill. The last two can learn a thing or two about communication from her.

Don't be like that, Pablo, it was a nice dance even without the rock breaking.

Totally worth it.

Question for the interpreters: does she need to do the dance as a precondition for activating an attack power, or was she just wasting their time before demonstrating her strength?

Neat to see a relatively straightforward demonstration of strength, though. Looks like she made it look easy, but presumably chose it because it was a good demonstration of her abilities.

That'd seem to make her mid-tier. Probably a lot weaker than Burk, Ariara, possibly Moe, probably Skyhook.. but probably a lot stronger than many of the lesser combatants we've seen.

In [http://www.neorice.com/hoh_burk_587], the Aristocrat partially smashed what looked like a much harder object, but looked like it took him a lot more effort/exertion, so.. that's roughly on-par.

Somehow, Silence seems reminiscent of a red, "Feline Leginess" cat... [www.neorice.com/hoh_noah_1801].

Yep, that's about what I was expecting. If anything, the rock is more intact than I thought it would be, but that could be a display of control over power.

So Silence can kick inanimate, non-moving objects to pieces. Great. I'm sure Pablo will consider that when he needs some demolitions work.

25742: noname - Monday, May 10 2021 - 6:37 AM

Is no-one going to bring up the fact that Silence's foot just detached itself from the rest of her leg with that kick? Or, alternatively, that her leg elongated itself beyond what's normally possible?

Anyway, she's got style, grace, control, force, finesse, and she probably won't tattle in the first place either. I'd say she's a mighty fine candidate.

it's more likely a showing of Speed that most of the leg is a blur but the foot is visible.

Noooo! Rock-kun!

Poor rock... it didn't survive... :(
