In the latest episode of Re:Zero, we’re learning about the mysterious past of Emilia. But more so than seeing the cute little 9 year-old Emilia, Re:Zero introduces us to the most broken character I’ve seen.
Pandora is introduced as a mysterious character who appears in Emilia’s Past as the leader of the Witches Cult. If you aren’t watching Re:Zero currently, first why not, secondly they are the principal bad guys of the show. The Witches Cult is attacking Ellior Forest where Emilia has been hidden for reasons unknown. She is the Key that the Witches’ Cult has been looking for and can open a powerful gate known as The Seal. When Pandora and her companion Regulus attack, Emilia is protected by Petelgeuse Romanee-Conti and her adoptive aunt Fortuna.
HOW DO YOU BEAT SOMEONE WHO CAN REWRITE REALITY?!
Petelguese (who was not yet the insane season one villain he becomes) is being decimated easily by Regulus, losing an arm. He then absorbs the Witch Factor that grants him the Authority of Sloth and begins to even the odds with the Unseen Hands. After whisking Emilia away to safety, Fortuna returns to help. That’s when the scary power of Pandora is brought to bear! Just watch the clip!
Pandora has the Authority of Vainglory. Explained fully, the Authority of Vainglory allows Pandora to rewrite reality to her whim as long as it favors her. Which means, she can negate her death and remove a persons presence and make events like they never were there. An INSANE power when you think of it. Pandora literally REMOVES Regulus from the scene and any events he was involved in. Peteguese’s arm that is fully restored as it if never was removed!
Pandora is quite simply, a broken character with a broken OP. I cannot fathom how anyone is going to beat such a character in the end.
