When i was reading comments, i saw multiple discution about BOT and how it work (berserk and things) then i decided to do a little investigation about this from the Manhwa. Follow the result with the evidence!
What do we know*?
The best explication about what is BOT is from TBNW*: Chapter 75 P17 and 18:
From Chun-woo speach, we learn that BOT is a technic who, wile you feel rage, reverse Ki and turn user crazy.
The évidence for these facts are*:
-TB Vol 9 chap 63 p 7 where Han Chun-Woo turn BOT after seeing Shiho dying in he's arms.
-TBNW chap 75 p 19 where Lee Shi-oon turn BOT to protect Sera Noona from Bae Seung-jae.
-TBNW chap 101 p 20 where Lee shi-oon turn BOT to avenge Jeon Jang-il death.
So i though it was ok that way... then i remembered a passage in TB.
Vol 9 chap 63 p 14, we can see Chun-Woo, with one kick, detroying floor of the hotel.
Vol 9 chap 63 p 19, Chun-woo with one knee attack make explode a head.
Vol 9 chap 64 p 1 with one hit he just decapited a master class guy.
Then Vol 9 chap 65 p 22 shi-oon interfere chun-woo and took the hit, even though So-chun pushed a bit shi-oon on the side he'd be dead basicaly... but survive?
And Chun-woo focus on some people but none of those who just watch peacefully are targeted, only those who oppose resistance
And TBNW chap 75, shi-oon is berserk mode, but not going completly berserk and killing noona.
TBNW chap 102, he's in BOT mode he don't jump on evryone around him, only a punch attempt to jinnie and then charge baldy ryu.
Why.... That question was turning again and again in my head making me crazy, then a read and re read the breaker and new waves, 7 time in total (well more for my own pleasur than for the sake of the investigation <3 ).
Or i'm turning completly crazy, or i may have found an logical explication about how the «*crazyness*» work.
BOT is a laser aimed rocket (like Javelin in MW).
1 Engage rage/turn on Javelin
2 Set target by rage/aim laser on the target
3 Turn BOT/open fire
4 Go to target
5 kill target/rocket explosion
6 end of BOT/turn off Javelin
In other words, i think that you set an order «*kill chief*» based on your rage o-meter (the one you hate the most is the main target) then anything interfering have to be chased away.
Chap 102 TBNW: Jinnie interaction attempt is seen as a interference:
Goal kill ryu->jinnie near+vocal interaction attempt->chase away interference.
TB Vol 9 chap 65 p 22: Shi-oon interfered chun-woo attack
Goal kill chief->so-munju deffend chief+direct attack attempt->kill so-munju to succed->intrud in the way->end charge on intruder
Shi-oon suddenly jump in the fight from nowhere wile chun-woo charge, no analysis just end moving.
TB vol 10 chap 67 p3: shi-oon second interference
Goal kill chief->sammooryong in the way->Kill sammooryong to succed->intruder interference-> Shi-oon recognized-> data base: Shi-oon, disciple, good friend, 0% hatred, do not kill-> intruder interference-> Shi-oon recognized-> ...->bug, reboot, deactivate BOT waiting for more info
That's my conclusion after reading again and again these chapters. BOT give you an target, then elliminate attacker and hindrance till target down. Once target down end of the BOT mode.
What you think?
