How Did Byakko Survive

Byakko (白虎, Byakko), the "White Tiger", was the second Saint Beast that Yusuke's team encountered in Demon City, otherwise known as the City of Ghosts and Apparitions. He has been shown to be the most durable of the Beasts, enduring the most devastating attacks. He was defeated twice by Kuwabara, first by an explosion of Youki, second when he is thrown into a pool of magma; however, he survived both brushes with great endurance. He is finally killed after being frozen by his fellow Saint Beast, Seiryu, and shattered to pieces. In the Filipino Dub of the anime, they use his standard name as White Tiger. He is voiced by Takeshi Watabe in the Japanese version and Andrew Chandler in the English dub. Byakko takes the appearance of a large humanoid tiger with mane-like sea green hair that flows down his back, light bluish fur with gray stripes on his arms, cheeks and legs, and two bottom canine teeth large enough to reach up his cheeks. He has yellow eyes with red pupils.

39;ve died if not for his unique ability as surveillance.

He wears a toga, what appear to be leopard skin leg warmers, and has a red sash as a belt. Byakko has a large appetite, both for energy and food which is a main motivation for his escape from Maze Castle, as he does not have any prey, and when presented with prey, he will attempt to have that prey be eaten, and will beat up an enemy until there is enough room for him to eat. He seemed rather arrogant and proud, calling himself the great predator out of the Saint Beasts, however he does not go as far as calling himself Sama (Lord), likely meaning he is loyal to the other two, while viewing the fourth, Genbu who displays such traits, as a weakling that should've died if not for his unique ability as surveillance. He confidently tests opponents with certain techniques and gets informed when they fail. After his first defeat by Kuwabara, he actually attempts to have him killed, by removing all ways to get to him and make him die easier, which also backfires on him. Despite this, he would be willing to ask a fellow member to aid him in defeating his foes once he realizes their potential threat, although he is brutally killed by that same member, leading to the fact that he is the only Saint Beast to feel a sense of teamwork and friendship. Byakko steps forward to fight Kuwabara.

After Kurama's defeat over Genbu, Kuwabara insists on defeating the next foe using his newly improved spirit sword. Suddenly, Byakko releases a loud roar, powerful enough to collapse the ceiling around Yusuke's friends, forcing them to run right towards him. Warning them they're now in his territory, Byakko tells Kurama and Hiei they'll be the first to die. Still, Kuwabara runs into battle, and Byakko is insulted if they would think one human could defeat him. He then throws several strands of hair into the air, creating monsters to attack Kuwabara. Kuwabara unleashes his spirit sword, impressing Byakko. However, Kuwabara is getting badly injured by the beasts, leading Yusuke to ask him to switch out. Kuwabara runs away and uses the "sword get longer" technique to skewer the beasts. Byakko gets angry as Yusuke mocks him and decides to fight himself. Byakko's size increases as Kuwabara slashes him with his sword, but Kuwabara continues to attack. This gives Byakko so much energy, his body seems obliterates.

However, as they go further into the castle, they hear Byakko's voice and follow it, leading them to a cave filled with lava. Kuwabara steps up, but is unable to fight, as Byakko's scream causes everything it touches to turn to ash. Luckily, Kuwabara manages to use the sword to pole vault onto Byakko's platform. He punches the Saint Beast, pushing them both into the lava. Byakko stumbles into Seiryu's chambers, begging for help. However, Byakko survives, albeit badly injured and stumbles into Seiryu's chamber, begging for help against the intruders, claiming that they tricked him by hiding their true powers in front of him. However, not showing any mercy for his weakened teammate, Seiryu ruthlessly freezes and executes Byakko, which served to ire Hiei, as the fire demon respectfully threw his coat on Byakko's severed head in an act of rare sympathy. Tiger Claws: By charging energy in the middle of his fingers, Byakko can shoot four energy darts. Never named in the original Japanese or the English dub. Beasts Unleashing (分身妖獣, Bunshin Yōjū, translated as Beast Energy Parturition): By pulling out strands of his hair and blowing on them, Byakko can enchant the hairs to create green tiger-like beasts, which are an extension of himself and feed off his energy. This attack is useful when fighting weaker opponents, so Byakko himself doesn't have to waste any energy. Tiger Scream (鳴虎衝壊波, Meiko Shōkaiha, translated as Screaming Tiger Demolishing Wave): Byakko's voice can actually disassemble molecular bonds, so when he charges his energy into his scream, anything that it touches turns to ash.

This scream is as destructive as the Spirit Gun and Byakko can use it almost with no limitations. Energy Absorption (霊気吸収, Reiki Kyūshū, translated as Spirit Energy Absorption): When an enemy attacks using energy, Byakko can absorb it, causing his body to increase in size and strength, while the other fighter becomes weakened. The only real drawback is that Byakko has no control over this power: Whenever he makes contact with energy, he absorbs it whether he wants to or not, even when he is "full". Because this means he has a set limit to how much he can absorb, the ability is a double-edged sword which Kuwabara exploited to defeat him the first time by giving more energy than he can safely contain. This ability was never named in the original Japanese or the English dub. Byakko also has great durability. He was knocked into a pool of lava by Kuwabara, and emerged later on alive, albeit drained of energy. Of the Saint Beasts, Byakko displayed the widest range of abilities, second to Suzaku, from his Yoki-based abilities like his energy absorption and his "screams" that can disassemble molecular bonds, to the creation of objects like claw daggers and beasts from his hair. Even his "basic" roars can cause serious damage to the castle to the point of causing cave-ins, as well as summoning lightning bolts. He also seems to be the only one to not have an ability that is based on an element (if one considers lightning an element).

A much larger Byakko (or a demon that looks like him) appears in the first anime opening, Smile Bomb, where he emerges from the ground and chases after Botan and Keiko before being shot by Yusuke and then bisected by Kuwabara (the silhouette makes it ambiguous if Kuwabara sliced ​​another demon or not though). This wouldn't work in the actual fight between them, as Byakko could easily absorb the energy that makes up Kuwabara's spirit sword. Byakko is the Japanese name of the animal deity Baihu, which guarded the west. It took the form of a tiger, and white is the color indicating the westward direction in Chinese mythology. The right flank of an advancing army would carry Byakko's flag. Today, the name is associated with having a great road to the west of one's house. He also has a unique ability to teleport in the anime; as after Kuwabara made him blow up from too much energy, he is clearly seen falling down from the castle's height, yet somehow manage to return into the castle, fully healed, and in his "Hell Room". Byakko represents one of the 4 symbols of the Chinese constellation, which is a White Tiger. The tiger guards the direction of West with a season of Fall(Autumn) and its Element of Metal. He is the only Saint Beast that is not killed by his opponent (Kuwabara), as he was later killed by Seiryu. When Byakko first appeared, he was shown to have a muscular build, but after Kuwabara defeated him and when he was seen in the lava filled cave, his appearance changed to be a bit overweight. When he arrived at Seiryu's room, he regained his muscular build. It is possible that the lava pit burned off his weight.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
