Tomoo is a child character and minor antagonist from the anime series Elfen Lied. Being the bully of Lucy, he is the real reason for why Lucy is evil.

Why He Intentionally Sucks

  1. He almost always bullies Lucy again and again.
  2. He may be a child, but he has killed a puppy using a vase in front of Lucy. To add insult to injury, said puppy was Lucy's only closest friend.
    • That being said, he made Lucy go berserk.
  3. He also fakes regretting what he did to the puppy, which makes him very unforgivable
  4. Even if he's supposed to be a bully figure to Lucy, him beating Lucy's puppy to death is absolutely unpleasant to see! Did the audience really have to see Tomoo beating the dog to its death? Unlike in real life, kids didn't kill the animals, they just love the animals instead of killing, and it also teaches kids to kill animals and pets!
    • Even kids also hated him for how murderous and cruel he was. The most terrible part: Killing the Lucy's friend puppy also terrifies the kids in real life, making kids hardly sympathize every animals when they got hurt!
  5. He keeps making fun of Lucy, consistently calling her a freak.
  6. Before he said to Lucy that he's found her puppy, he makes an evil and downright cruel grin, similar to Bendy. The face itself, despite looking cool, looks cringeworthy, depending on your view.
  7. For a child, he is way more sadistic and cruel than your average bully or villain. Critics have actually claimed that the average bully of his age would not even come close to being as sadistic, mean-spirited and traumatizing as he is. One can even wonder why he is an orphan in the first place...
  8. He's the actual reason Lucy is dissociative and the homicidal monster she is now.
  9. His cruelty towards Lucy has been widely hated by fans and critics alike, making him even one of the most hated anime characters of all time.
    • On the same note as that, fans and critics even consider Tomoo to be just as, if not more sadistic and mean-spirited as the Director (the main villain of Elfen Lied) and the Unknown Man. And keep in mind, both of those two are SUPPOSED to be taken in an evil and twisted sense..
  10. Aside from getting kicked in the belly and dying because of Lucy, he never gets any comeuppance whatsoever, making him a Karma Houdini.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He only appeared in two episodes.
  2. He got his comeuppance in the second episode he appeared in, as he first gets kicked in the belly, and then he as well as his friends got killed by Lucy.
  3. He was likely intentionally written to be hated so the audience would not feel sad when Lucy killed him and his friends although they were kids.
  4. His voice was pretty good in both the English and Japanese dubs.
  5. His design is pretty cute, despite what a jerk he is.
