Fridge Logic

  • The power-levels say that an average demon can take on a small army of humans, so how the hell does B.B. Hood (let alone the other darkhunters implied by her backstory) kill powerful ones (The Darkstalkers) for a living?
    • It is said there are also weaker monsters on par with Muggles also exist, so I assume they mostly hunt those monsters, not average ones. B.B. Hood does hunt average monsters, but no one else does.
    • There also exist nonsentient demons with next to no combat ability.
    • She is rated as an S-class hunter in the guild. Maybe those ratings match the ratings for demons based on being capable of going toe to toe with one of the same class and winning.

    • Or S-rating hunter on Earth doesn't match up with S-rating in Makai. The most numerous of the Makai population are D class, which people can kill easily and most Darkstalkers humans are most likely to encounter are not from Makai anyway.
      • None of that changes the fact that B.B. Hood can fight on par with the rest of the cast, using tactics and weapons that military people would use, which creates a plot hole with the official power levels.
      • As a possible explanation, B.B Hood may be unconsciously channeling a form of Ki, fueled by her unremitting hatred, that's pumping her "standard" weapons with killing intent, thus causing them to do MUCH more damage. Either that, or she custom loads them to kill specific strains of Darkstalker
  • So BB Hood was added to show humans can be more terrifying than any monster right? Wait, wasn't that the point of Lord Raptor's backstory? Was he not made into a zombie because a creature in Makai was impressed by how evil he was as a human?
    • Except they are different. Lord Raptor is a psychopath who cared for nothing and was a monster on the inside - it‘s why he was made into what he is - he was made into what he was on the inside. B.B. Hood is motivated by terrible but normal human feelings like greed and anger. She doesn’t want to kill the world (unless she gets something in return) - and is just an evil person to the very core. There is no need for her to be turned into a monster because she isn’t one on the inside - she human from head to toe and from her skin to her core.

    • It could also have to do with how Raptor, for how vile he is was still Ozum's pawn until Jedah got to the latter (even if Raptor plotted against him the whole time). B.B. Hood on the other hand answers to no one but herself and commits her atrocities for herself as a human girl.

Fridge Horror

  • A friend pointed out that, in the (literal) Womb Level of Darkstalkers 3, the question is raised: if the characters are in the womb of the Fetus of God, who or what gave birth to God?
    • It's probably just a new god, not Capital G God. Jedah just calls it God because he's fascinated with it: he's a dark messesaiah with powers beyond Demitri.
