Recap / OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes S 1 E 45 Lad & Logic

Go To

K.O. learns the story of how Mr. Logic came to the plaza.


  • Beard of Sorrow: After Mr. Gar resigned from P.O.I.N.T. due to the "sandwich incident", he let his hair grow out and grew a beard that not only covered his face but also prevented him from speaking clearly.
  • Call-Back: One of the P.O.I.N.T. members in Boxman's diagram seems to be Laserblast, and Mr. Gar has left the group as a result of the incident.
  • Call-Forward:
    • The giant Junkfish that Boxman attacks Mr. Gar with is later shown in the scrap heap in "I Am Dendy".
    • Crinkly Wrinkly was around when the plaza was founded, hence why he described it in "Legends of Mr. Gar". Though despite Mr. Gar's corroborating it, Crinkly Wrinkly's account was almost completely inaccurate (though he was partly right about a robot helping).
    • Back when Lord Boxman was still called Lad Boxman, he insists as Mr. Logic walks away that "I am your lord!"
  • Didn't Think This Through: Boxman created Mr. Logic to help him avoid this, immediately noticing the flaw in his plan to attack P.O.I.N.T., and pointing out that the plaza being around actually benefited him, not that Boxman listened.
  • Feeling Oppressed by Their Existence: Even when Logic points out that more heroes around will lead to increased demand for Boxman robots, Boxman can't help but obsess over destroying the plaza.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Boxman created Mr. Logic to be, well, logical, and this led to them falling out and Mr. Logic having a Heel–Face Turn when Boxman's irrational hatred of the plaza first popped up and started consuming him, and Mr. Logic interacting with Gar leading to him concluding that it was more logical to create rather than destroy.
  • Origins Episode: The episode turns out to be the origin not just for Mr. Logic, but Boxmore, Lakewood Plaza, and the feud between the two.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Before his actual Heel–Face Turn, Mr. Logic points out Lad Boxman should leave Gar's Bodega alone because he actually benefits from someone selling supplies to heroes—better equipped heroes means more demand for Boxmore robots. Boxman doesn't care.
  • Redemption Rejection: Mr. Logic tries to get Boxman to see reason and move away from destruction, even saying that there must be some good inside him if he created him. Boxman rebukes this by saying the only reason he creates is to destroy.
  • What Could Possibly Go Wrong?: The episode introduces baby versions of Boxman's typical robot kids, minus Raymond. He's confident he won't regret it.
  • The Unreveal: We're shown what it was that caused Boxman to dedicate his life to trying to destroy the plaza, and it turns out to be... nothing. His hatred turns out to be entirely irrational.
