Metal Bat is so cool.

ONE really has a firm grasp on writing heroic characters. In most stories, "Stupid mook with a club" would not be a compelling character, much less an inspiring one.

Metal Bat still didn't even try to defend himself till the security guards tipped their hands and confirmed they were completely evil because he trusted that they could restrain those cyborgs more easily.

Dude's great. 👍

Without the benefit of voice acting, I'm sure the impression you're supposed to get there was surprise and genuine shock rather than an angry Josuke Higashikata huh?

Like you're meant to think that 'oh gently caress they can take on Metal Bat, this got really dire' and then he Ultra Instincts past them and oh it's alright for now, phew.

If this were an SRW Metal Bat would have Lv10 prevail/potential.
You can get him to half health really fast but when you do hes not losing one digit more.

Who wants to bet the two robots/cyborgs that showed up at the end of that arc are in fact the two Neo employees with Metal Bat right now?

We know the anime didnít expect to see Hammerhead again, since he was shown to be at a job interview during the Boros arc.

There is, he was being followed by some B or C class heroes who were monitoring him the same time he was going for a job interview. Odds are they arrested him later.
