Mob Psycho 100 Has a Top Tier Protagonist

Mob Psycho 100 is an Anime that has a lot of Action, but what’s different about this series is that Mob, the main character, is already overpowered and the strongest character in the entire show from the beginning!

So there is no training arc or a character that he needs to become stronger to beat him! Mob doesn’t go through a character development that gives him more power, instead, he goes through a personality growth that makes him mature and becomes a better social human.

Mob is a 14 years old boy who isn’t great at social communication, he is shy and awkward around people and struggles to make new friends, and he gets jealous of those who find that easy. On the other hand, he is a very kind person with a pure heart.

Mob‘s powers are directly linked to his emotional states. There are a few times when his emotions go out of his control, and when that happens, his powers also go out of control which results in him hurting people whom he cares about.

Mob extremely hates that and that’s why he tries to mature and grow as a person. Throughout the series, this is what we are exposed to! Mob is an extremely well-written character and he is one of the best Anime Protagonists ever!

The Character Development in Mob Psycho 100

Besides Mob, the rest of the cast is also remarkably well-written and some of them go through significant character development!

You got Reigan, a businessman who owns an office where he welcomes people with supernatural cases and helps them out, Mob was working for him from a young age and sees him as his mentor!

The reality is that Reigan was exploiting and laying to Mob the whole time, he was using him to make money and never cared about how Mob will feel when he finds that out. But when that was about to happen, Reigan realized how wrong he was and accepted that Mob is not a child anymore and that he grew up. This led to one of the best moments in the entire series!

Other characters like Ritsu, Mob‘s brother, Teru, and even Dimple the spirit, changed a lot and became better characters throughout the story!

Ritsu became stronger to protect his brother and take care of himself, Teru threw his ego away and became more humble and friendly, and Dimple was such a useful support character after being just an evil spirit.
