In Irish mythologyBalor or Balar was a leader of the Fomoriansa group of malevolent supernatural beings. He is often described as a giant with a large eye that wreaks destruction when opened. He has been interpreted as a personification of the scorching sun, and has also been likened to figures from other mythologies, such as the Welsh Ysbaddaden and Greek Cyclops. Balor first appears in the medieval texts that make up the Mythological Cycle.
Balor appears as champion of the Fomorians and king of the Isles the Hebrideswhile Indech mac De was the Fomorian king; the two of them leading the Fomorian army. Balor's body then crushed 27 Fomorian soldiers, and his head touched the king, [ vague ] Indech.
Though not stated outright, the supposition is that Balor here is a "one-eyed giant". Another description of Balor's death, dating from at least the 12th century, says he survived the loss of his eye and was chased by Lugh to Mizen Head. Lugh beheads Balor and sets the head on a large rock, which then shatters. In one early collected and published folktale midth century Balor is a famous warrior on Tory Island.
To avoid his fate, he locks his only daughter, Ethnea recte Eithnein a tower to keep her from becoming pregnant. Balor orders the three children born to be drowned, but one survives.
The grandson is fostered by the smith who is his uncle [g] Balor eventually encounters his grandson by chance and is killed by him. The unnamed grandson in the tale is recognizable as Lugh.
Tower of God
Brown who tries to establish connection to Arthurian lore. Lug always puts the evil eye out", as summarized by Mark Scowcroft. In O'Donovan's version of the folktale above, Balor has one eye in the middle of the forehead, and a deadly eye on the back of his head. It is described as both venomous, and issuing some sort of petrifying beam with powers like unto a basilisk. In "Balor on Tory Island", Balor covers the eye in the middle of his forehead with nine leather shields, but Lugh Lui Lavada "the Longhand" sends a red spear crafted by Gavidin Gow through all the layers.
It may be that this forehead eye should be interpreted an "extra eye in the middle of his forehead" one of three as Scowcroft puts it, otherwise Balor would be rendered blind most of the time. But Scowcroft does not specify the work he is alluding to.
Balor is explicitly three-eyed in a version published by William Hamilton Maxwell. But another version of the folktale from Co. Mayo says that Balor was single-eyed, yet it was usually covered: "He had a single eye in his forehead, a venomous fiery eye.
There were always seven coverings over this eye. One by one Balar removed the coverings. With the first covering the bracken began to wither, with the second the grass became copper-coloured, with the third the woods and timber began to heat, with the fourth smoke came from the trees, with the fifth everything grew red, with the sixth it sparked.
With the seventh, they were all set on fire, and the whole countryside was ablaze! According to a lay in Duanaire FinnBalor's severed head being set in the fork of an oak, and that tree which absorbed the venom became the timber-wood made into the shield of Fionn mac Cumhaill. In "Balor on Tory Island" and the Irish text close to it, Lui Lavada or Lugh sets Balor's head on a rock, and a lake forms from the dripping pool of liquid.
Donegal, local to the storyteller.He is apparently the one that Regulars should be most afraid of at the first station. He boarded the Hell Express with the main goal of stopping Hoaqin. After the events that took place on the Last Stationhe was last seen departs from Baam's team with Boro and goes their own way. Sachi looks much like he did years ago, with fair skin, drooping crimson coloured hair and similar coloured eyes. He currently has a black eyepatch-like thing covering his left eye.
He appeared to be quite easygoing in the past but this has changed into a more serious persona in the present. He seems to blame Boro for Daniel going the wrong way and came to the conclusion to avoid him because of his personality. After being filled in on what Daniel was planning to do, Sachi reflected on his thoughts of when Aka came to find him before saying that he happened to be around thanks to Emile.
At the 'Altar' Boro, Aka and Sachi witnessed Hoaqin coming out of the train with Boro noting that he looked smaller than last time. Boro then watched in dismay as Hoaqin effortlessly decimated a large amount of the Regulars at the station.
Later, with only 10 minutes left to board the train, Boro and company raced towards the stairs of the train but caught the attention of Hoaqin on the way. With freak lightning interrupting Hoaqin's assault, BaamKoon and Rak swiftly arrived on the stairs leading into the train.
Daniel told them all he wouldn't let them on to the train and that they would take control of the train until Hoaqin was whole and Roen was alive. Sachi then said that it was their job to talk sense into Daniel.
A brief scuffle broke out between the two sides but it was interrupted when they were all teleported to the train conductor's office. He introduced himself and then informed them about a game that would decide who would become the Slayer candidate in a month's time.
At that, he teleported them away to different locations in the train. Their group immediately encountered the guardian Yokim and they planned on taking him down until Hwa Ryun suggested that from that point onwards, Baam was to take all tests by himself in order to prepare for challenging Hoaqin. Sachi then watched as Baam took on Yokim and discussed with Boro about Baam's lack of killing intent and how he wouldn't be able to match Hoaqin if he didn't develop it; Baam eventually defeated Yokim and they passed the stage.
During their traversing of the train's pathways, the group eventually encountered the "god" of guardians. Sachi and Boro suggested turning back due to the guardian's fearsome reputation and power, but Baam adamantly decided to stay and challenge the "god" of guardians.
At that, the guardian snatched Baam up and took him away.After later being forcibly recruited into FUGBaam joined Team Tangsooyook and managed to escape from FUG's clutches, eventually reuniting with his old friends and teammates.

The most updated information about Baam from the most recent chapter can be found here.
If you haven't caught up with the current Tower of God webtoon story, read at your own risk. Appearance and Personality. Abilities and Powers. Contents [ show ]. For short you can just call me Baam. Even if you tell me to introduce myself, there's not much to say. I don't have parents I always thought that I might die alone without ever being able to do anything But now- I have friends. Thank you.
No matter what's up there, that won't change. You told me that being like I am is strange, but to me, you're a person who can't even find a single thing that's precious within that huge pile of garbage. I'm not sure I have to find out! Zahard and their kin I live for their death. That is why none of you can become my teammate. I am your enemy. It's only possible that someone will be happy. But if someone tries to hurt those that are precious to me, I will fight.
So that I don't have to say goodbyes anymore. How strong do I have to be not to lose any more friends? I don't want to say goodbyes anymore.In Part I, Baam was very weak, having no particular skills except his determination and courage. It is understandable that Baam has no fighting experiences at the beginning because of his background history that he was trapped inside a cave. Although having no experiences in fighting, Baam has already shown his most dangerous ability, that is "quick learning".
For example, when he applied tactics and strategy in a board game against Rachel. At first, Baam experienced many defeats in the previous board game, but he quickly learns how to "slow down" his defeat, because he was motivated to get Rachel to spend more time with him.
During the first half of Part I, Baam cannot fight at all. As seen in the first test of Second Floor when he encountered a member of Da-an Tribe. He hesitated to stab the enemy that was standing in front of him. Baam only got lucky that he didn't have to fight because most enemies have killed each other, and not to mention that he also met Khun Aguero Agnis. Again, at the event of the Crown Game Baam still cannot fight and he just sits on the throne while being protected by Khun Aguero and Rak Wraithraiser.
Later in the story, after undergoing hard training and taking a Wave Controller class at the floor of the test, Baam showed his capabilities to be an expert and prodigy at manipulating the shinsoo unlike most Regulars.
Phonsekal Laure mentioned that Baam was born with "talent". Baam only began showing his dangerous potential during the Hide-and-Seek 's test when he "instantly copied" the Fast Skip technique of Quant Blitz in just a few seconds after his body came into contact with the technique. At first, Quant taught Baam about this technique only to give false hope to Baam in saving Rachel's life who was under Ho 's threat, just for a brief moment while he rush to take down the spear bearers first.
Because Quant knew that Fast Skip normally takes decades to learn, even for a Ranker and it's impossible to learn it in such a short time. In the end, Baam succeeded in performing Quant's technique, much to the shock of the ranker. Quant then proceeded to ask "is that boy really a monster? By the end of Part I, Baam learned how to do close-range fight with hand to hand combat after training with Androssi and eventually became very good at dodging punches.
Baam also killed the Bull with one shinsoo shot, a feat which even Anak and Androssi couldn't pull off. However, it is later revealed that it is the water of the tank in which the test was held had Shinsoo-enhancing properties which gave Baam a significant boost in power.
In Part II, Baam has become so adept in combat that others are beginning to fear his strength and avoid him entirely. He is now openly declared a "monster" even by Rankers such as Love. Ja Wangnan describes him as the "Demon". Such feats include handling a 2-on-1 battle against Akraptor and Horyang,  another 2-on-2 fight against Novick and Ran  both of whom were in the Top 10 strongest E-rank Regulars and another recent 2-on-1 battle against Ship Leesoo's team members Vespa and Aleksai Amigochaz regardless of his inability to use Shinsoo at the time.
As of Vol. After his one-month training with the data self of Koon Eduan, Baam's power has increased to the point of holding his own against the data self of Zahard,ultimately stalemating him with the full power of the Thorn.
Later, using Black March, the Thorn, and his true power, Baam was able to hold off two Rankers one versus two. Great Charisma : Baam has shown quiet yet charismatic qualities that attract most people to him, regardless of his involvements with FUG.Kami no Tou: Tower of God OP - "TOP" - Stray Kids (Piano) - 신의탑 (神之塔) - 스트레이 키즈
Novick notes that Baam is like a shining light that causes people to endlessly follow him. Improved Agility : In Part II, his speed has increased to the point where he can appear next to someone to deliver a punch in a flash. However, his speed is not at the level of a Ranker yet as Love was able to outrun him to his connector.
Regardless, he is almost always seen to be faster than the opponents he has faced, even if in a handicapped position. Later, during the last round of the Dallar Show even a Hoaqin that had already absorbed three of his siblings commented on his increasing speed. This is likely due to the training he received from FUG.
Immense Reflexes : After communicating with the "Power" inside of him and receiving a little more 'power', Baam has since exhibited rapid, nigh-instantaneous reflexes.When a Sun God is upgraded to a Monkey Temple, everything in the attack radius of the Sun God will disappear and is sacrificed to that temple.
If a Temple is in range of a Sun God when this upgrade is purchased, it will be sacrificed, but will not add any abilities other than blades.
Note that placing multiple of them can get difficult, as they can sacrifice other temples. The Temple can attack Camo Bloons regardless of upgrades or sacrifices.
It is also best to place the Temple in a place where its huge range would not be wasted. Sun Rays shoot every 0. They always come with the Temple. Here are some basics to the powers. Ice: Reloads every 2 sec, bloons freeze for 1. Pierce is for each. Also adds an Arctic Wind effect around the temple for final tier.
Apprentice: Reloads every 1. Glue: Reloads every. First tier does not have corroding glue. Other towers: Reloads every 0. Only final tier can pop lead.
These videos will indicate the enhancement of the Temple of the Monkey God by sacrificing towers. Note: If you bought upgrades for the second path as well increasing the range, it will sacrifice the other temple as well. And as long as the range of the super monkey does not cross the exact middle pixel of the temple you can purchase the T. G upgrade without sacrificing the other temple making it possible for temples to overlap.

Ultimately he decided to hand over that power to a person who would use it properly. Having encountered Hell Joe at one of the holes on his previous trip to the 43rd Floor, Urek deemed Joe to be suitable to use its power, entrusting it to him, thus Hell Joe acquired personal usage of the Red Thryssa's powers.
Urek Mazino was surprised that he felt the Red Thryssa inside of Baam. The Red Thryssa is a lizard-like entity with a primarily light grey body and blood red claws, spines and fangs. While still a juvenile creature it had a small body with a pair of arm-like extensions tipped with a long claw each and a spiny tail. When it was merged with Hell Joe and took control of his body, the Red Thryssa took on the form of a completely blood red version of Joe with all his devilish features more pronounced and the addition of a long spiked tail.
After being separated from Hell Joe, the Red Thryssa was larger with a large goat-like head with blood red eyes, a mouth filled with sharp fangs and a pair of long spine-like horns protruding from the sides of its head.
It also had four pairs of blood red rib-like spines protruding from either side of its body and a pair of incredibly large wings sprouting from its back. It came into being from a small part that had been severed from the Guardian's corpse. Because it retains all its memories prior to its death at the hands of Enryu  the Red Thryssa is extremely arrogant of its apparent god-like power and former status as a Guardian.
The Red Thryssa's predatory abilities are so powerful that it can bypass the immortality spell cast on the 43rd Floorenabling it to paralyse and then absorb the powers of Floor of Death inhabitants once it bites them.
Urek Mazino said that this monster is born of the deceased 43rd Guardian's corpse, essentially being its 'child'. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Appearance and Personality The Red Thryssa is a lizard-like entity with a primarily light grey body and blood red claws, spines and fangs.
