The way psychic powers behave seems similar. The Numbers could have been created using DNA samples from Etsuko and Old Cho. Perhaps Etsuko was Tetsuo's MissingMom.

* Any kids raised by New Age hippie parents whacky enough to tell their kids that they had superpowers ''would'' be different enough to be bullied-- not that bullies in general are very specialized about what types of differences they pick on. That's just the nature of bullies.
** [[ParanoiaFuel Gee, thanks. A new age Hippie already calls this troper an indigo due to some supernatural experiences, a psychic reading that ended with the psychic saying I had "bound up energy", and other stuff.]] [[NightmareFuel now I know what to look forward to. Exploding violently multiple times.]] TVTropesWillRuinYourLife indeed.

If he wanted to. Or, more accurately, if he believe so. His desire to find Akira makes it possible for him to teleport outside the Nursery building. And are many other examples of Tetsuo's powers increased because his Power of Will. But his inferiority complex on Kaneda make him unable to defeat his former-best-childhood-friend, even after he deals with bigger foes.

Had the epsers simply ask Kaneda to help them he would have killed Tetsuo. In the Movie Kaneda was the only one able to harm him physically, either with his hands or any weaponry at his disposal. In fact he came close to killing him had the battery in his laser gun didn't die.

not died.



Akira is said by the Espers to be effectively an EmptyShell because his powers have effectively overwritten his personality, but several frames from the manga imply that this is not the case. For one, he is '''genuinely fucking irate''' after witnessing [[spoiler: Takashi's death]], and has displayed some other emotions, such as boredom and anticipation.

Think about it. Four extremely uber-powered superkids (One who DESTROYED TOKYO, thank you very much) are pushing the limits of the universe's power capacity, put Tetsuo is just breaking the limit. I mean, with all that other power out there in the universe, there's gotta be a "sorry, kids, the universe can't handle this much freaky power" point along the line, right? So the kids create an ''entire fucking universe'' to store their power and Tetsuo's.

The basics (altering a human child to grant them PsychicPowers and transform them into a SuperSoldier) are remarkably similar, and it did [[GoneHorriblyWrong go horribly horribly wrong]] both times. The real fun comes from speculating [[Comicbook/{{Watchmen}} why Japan wanted to develop psychic super-soldiers in the first place.]]
