Itme JP's character. A Mutant Glaive who Needs No Weapon, his mutations replaced one of his arms with a short stinging tentacle.

Tropes associated with Bleen:

  • Beware the Nice Ones: The calmest and kindest member of the team, but also the strongest.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: While his tentacle doesn't count as this trope for obvious reasons, his physical prowess is explained as the result of intensive training.

  • Fantastic Fighting Style: Cthu-Fu, a martial art focused on making the most of one's mutations.
  • Nice Guy: Calm and friendly to those he meets, always preferring a peaceful approach.
  • Mushroom Samba: Ends up accidentally taking a fictional drug in-universe. The effects are amusing.

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He activates his living solvent, hoping it will help him in battle. It takes his hand.

  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Unlike Triple A, Pocket's real name is unknown.
  • The Smart Guy: Translates what the Gruelling Mentats are saying, and also figures out how their machine works.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Pocket casually smokes to display how little he cares about a situation.
  • Token Evil Teammate: More neutral than evil, but certainly less heroic than the others.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Though it's more vitriolic than the usual instances of this trope, Pocket wishes to prove to his late father that Pocket is superior to him. At least, that's what he'd have you believe. In reality, he wishes to resurrect his family.
