This will be the last time I act all smug because I called the path of this story months back, because the more I thought about how this went, the more I realised that if even my dumb ass could see this path ahead; then maybe the Moro arc hasn’t been a tale worth telling. Although I’m not sure that’s an assessment I can feel good about until it’s over and done with.
Those poor Namekians just can’t catch a break. No sooner than Moro, our planet consuming warlock, manages to escape Galactic Patrol custody, then he’s off to drink some slug people.
The chapter begins by giving us some more insight into Moro after Goku’s shocked reaction that ended the previous manga chapter. While he doesn’t necessarily have a powerful ki, Goku describes his energy as “a whole lot of people screaming in pain.” which is pretty grim.
We begin this part far in the past, with the Great Lord of Lords and South Supreme Kai battling “Planet Eater Moro”, a robed warlock that kind of looks like a Saiyan great ape with ram’s horns. This master of magic has destroyed over 300 planets and added their power to his own, becoming nigh unstoppable. A strong introduction to a different kind of villain for this franchise.
Ultimately, the Great Lord of Lords manages to sacrifice most of his own power in order to seal away Moro’s magic and allow the Galactic Patrol to seal him away for 10 million years. 5 million years later, when Majin Buu went onto absorb the Great Lord of Lords and take on his fat and “innocent” appearance, the seal on Moro’s magic was released.
