The sword isn't completely ineffective as a sword against other things - he's fought the Earl and the level 4 with it (not very well, I might add, but it was solid and sword-like and all), and split the Skull's head open with it. It's obviously somewhat sharp, so it's amazing that the level 4 could take it through the stomach and... not appear wounded at all. Although that last part might just have been Hoshino forgetting (there was one scene in the Ark where Lenalee gets blood on her face - from Allen, I think - and yet she isn't shown with it at all the next time she's seen.)
He probably does, though. Eating all that food in such a short period of time... =POh Digi, I said he had a bottomless stomach, I never mentioned anything about an unhinging jaw! :P
The level 3 were always kinda pathetic. Lenalee nearly died because of the Law of No Effect (from Pokemon), but they weren't a problem to anyone else. Allen took one out easily because he had to look cool, not because he was actually way more powerful than everyone else (because... he's not).Originally Posted by Kolox
The level 4 probably is about as challenging as a Noah because Noah seem to die more easily. They're human. In terms of battle, though, no, not really, and I was always predicting that. It seemed strong because it did powerful things like toss Allen into a wall and destroy a floor, although I'm sure any Exorcist/Noah could do the same if they wanted to, and prevented people from attacking. When the enemies you're defeating don't even have Innocence to fight you with...
This was the first report of a level 4 even existing. It could be that this is the first level 4.Seems Earl doesn't have many level 4 to spare - if he just sent 4 level 4, he would had the Arc in no time.
