I'm confuesd by Kars' DNA ability.

Postby Kyojo777 » Wed Dec 30, 2015 7:03 pm

For some reason, I keep seeing people say that Kars can incorporate new DNA into himself. Am I wrong to say that that is false and that Kars can't incorporate the DNA of, say, an alien into himself?

Incorporating new DNA is a load of hooey, but an alien would be no big deal when he was capable of creating inorganic matter.

Probably misinterpreting the squirrel/butterfly scene.

EDIT: Get out of here, King Crimson

Thanks for clarifying. I honestly don't know where people got that "Kars can incorporate new DNA into himself" thing from.

I feel like the wording of the question is confusing me. How does one "incorporate new DNA"?

Can Kars absorb the DNA of an alien, and thus turn into said alien?

who says aliens work on a DNA based system. the real question is if kars can replicate things like RNA or DNA analogs.

Okay, let me (Again >_>) rephrase that. Let's say Kars was somehow teleported to the world of, I don't know, Hunter X Hunter, would he be able to absorb the DNA of a hunter there and use Nen?

I don't think Kars absorbing beings and taking their DNA was ever a thing. He can alter his cellular structure to take any form, but I think he has to be aware that whatever he's transforming into exists. Because he was aware of ripple, he was able to learn it pretty quickly, so in theory if he's subjected to any being he could transform into them after enough examination. That or he needs to shove his fingers into their head or something.

Like I said before kyojo's post that travelled forward in time, some people misinterpreted the squirrel/butterfly/etc scene from the anime.
