One Punch Man: Cosplayer Makes Genos’s Impossible Body a Reality

Caveat! next in AmericanPost.News contains One Punch Man chapter 169 spoilers. We recommend catching up on ONE and Yusuke Murata’s manga at VIZ Media before reading on.

Ever since illustrator Yusuke Murata picked it up for reimagining, One-Punch Man has skyrocketed to critical acclaim, earning him more than a few cosplays. While One-Punch Man’s epic Garou Arc is also coming to an end soon, that hasn’t stopped fans from showing up in droves with some of the best cosplay imaginable.

One cosplay, in particular, manages to bring the impossible body of “Demon Cyborg” to life. Genes. First introduced in chapter 5 of the One Punch Man manga, Genos is Saitama’s loyal disciple.

Genos was once a normal boy who lived in a nameless town far from the major cities of the world. Genos claims that one day an insane cyborg came across town from him and rampaged, ripping and tearing at the villagers until they were all killed except Genos.

He was later found by the charitable Dr. Kuseno, who then agreed to transform Genos into a cyborg in order to one day avenge his family. Since then, Genos has been almost entirely mechanical, except for an artificial skin material covering his facial structure.

Even his thoughts and memories are stored in his cybernetic core instead of a physical brain, and his arms are completely metallic in nature, making this S-Class superhero a very difficult character to disguise.

A dedicated fan EzrelaCosplay, has managed to pull off the difficult cyber aspect of Genos despite these challenges that he has posted about it on Reddit. With the addition of some bulky shoulder pads and even a set of lights running through the limb structure, this cosplay is a masterclass in anime precision.

Thankfully, aside from his ridiculously complex arms, Genos tends to wear mostly shirtless t-shirts and jeans or other easy-going civilian clothing. That said, any attempt to mimic its intricate arms and the technology they contain is a challenging task. EzrelaCosplay, however, has clearly risen to meet this challenge and manages to bring this character’s impossible body to life.

Recently, within One-Punch Man, Genos received the core of his future self, who was killed by Garou. By connecting his core from the future with himself, Genos was able to see all the events that had occurred within this parallel timeline, even witnessing Saitama’s Fist of Zero Causality sending him back in time to stop Garou in the first place.

With this new information at his disposal, as well as having a second core, Genos could be in line for one of the biggest power-ups in the series. Simply changing his arms has had massive implications for his power at previous points in the story, and one can only imagine how much stronger he could become with two cores.

As far as One Punch Man cosplays go, this Genos outfit is hands down one of the best out there. On the other hand, we invite you to know 10 things you should know about Genos and Saitama here.
