As you might recall him as the worlds strongest martial art fighter and reigning World Martial Art champion, yes you are right the great Hercule Satan who saved world multiple time’s, no I’m not kidding, if you were in dragon ball universe you would be like worshiping Mr. Satan (think about it) as we have seen after the cell saga the whole city was named after Mr. Satan and he was like an Ultimate existence.
But we know the real hero’s due to whom Earth is still intact in one piece, yeah you know right it’s our Son Goku. The Saiyan fighter who loves to fight and train, and our savior on whom the whole world relies to save the day, not literally as no one knows who Goku is and what he has done for the world as that credit was somehow ended in Mr. Satan’s Pocket. But as we know Goku don’t mind that as he don’t want fame as in case of Mr. Satan who boast about his fake achievements.
But, Do world know that Mr. Satan is fake?, Was Mr. Satan’s truth exposed to world?, Does world know that Mr. Satan is weak?, Does world know that he didn’t beat Cell but it was Goku? Change of question, Do world know who is the true hero and Savior of world? , this post is based on this question’s.
The Answer is NO, the answer to every question above is No, nobody knows the truth about Mr Satan. In the cell games Satan was brutally beaten but later Gohan killed Cell and the Z fighter’s left, the shock created from their battle made it difficult to capture any evidences of the real fight so Satan took all the credit for it claiming that he beat the cell to the world.
For Majin buu’s case that memories were erased from world making Buu a friend of Mr. Satan.
I know some fans are totally frustrated over Goku living as nobody who does everything. I’m a die hard fan of Goku, even I was frustrated when I found that Goku’s true identity was not known to the world, and Mr. Satan had gained the fame.
But I think even if Satan wasn’t the actual character to be praised he gave fair share of contribution while fighting with Buu in final for where he went on rampage, to defeat him the final contribution for spirit bomb was actual came from Mr. Satan as nobody was listening to Goku and Vegeta for giving their spirit energy for making ultimate Spirit bomb, but it was Mr. Satan to whom everyone listened and gave their spirit power, making ultimate bomb defeating Buu.
It’s just that Satan has swapped in at critical situations and earned that he is not useless.
It was never revealed that Mr. Satan was a fake who never defeated Cell, But he proved that he was crucial at many places.
Thanks for reading.
