    That's like saying "Training...in...100x...gravity...that...is...constantly...crushing..you... :oldryoma"

    When that's what Goku did during the Namek Arc of DB. Gradually adapt to harsh conditions that push you to your limit until they become natural to you and your body is toughened as a result.

    After melting and regenerating for hundreds/thousands of years (since a minute in the outside world corresponds to a year in Purgatory) I imagine Ban's body would get used to the conditions and stop melting at a certain point.

    Yeah only because he cannot die and the dragon kinda got bored. Which is basically the same way Ban won all of their "serious" brawls, simply by outfighting Mel.

    By the way, judging from the amount of hair Ban grew after the dragon had blown off his torso and his body turned into his usual young self with the short hair cut, it resembles the growth Ban had in the beginning of the series when he was kept in prison by Weird Fang for 5 years.

    So that fight with the dragon lasted non stop for a minimum of 5 years.

    Yeah, it wouldn't be unreasonable. That's why I said minimum. We obviously didn't see the full fight.

    At any rate, I think someone on reddit did the math that if Ban had been in Purgatory for a full day he would have been there for more than a thousand years already or something like that.

    EDIT: Gotta correct myself; Merlin said a minute in the real world is a year in Purgatory. A fully day in the real world has 1440 minutes. So even at half, that's 720 years.

    720 FUCKING YEARS of being constantly suffocated, burned alive and frozen to death not to mention fighting absurdly strong monsters for DECADES.

    No matter how strong Ban emerges physically, he is probably the strongest creature on the planet in mentally now.

    I thought he only gassed out that fast after facing the physical toll from using Physical Hunt or Hunter Fest?

    Though I guess his time limit and absorption limit for both of those may be massively raised after what he's gone through now :hm

    It'd be cool if at one point he used Hunter Fest to absorb all the other sins power into himself, while facing a big bad :bury

    One of the few ways to do permanent damage to Ban's body was the power of Darkness wielded by Meliodas, and Ban just got a decades long sparring session against a beast shaped Darkness incarnation of Meliodas :hm

    Ban will be ridiculous, and it's also ridiculous how far into the story he got without recovering his Sacred Treasure in comparison with the other Sin's.

    He's going to have some "Will" techniques up his sleeve now. Doubt any voodoo/hocus pocus can affect him anymore. As well as being a top-tier physically.

    Yay, Ban pulled an 'Akainu vs Aokiji'. His hair and beard should be much longer though if he really went 720 years in purgatory without haircut.

    Ban's regen just got an upgrade from the latest chapter.

    We knew before he could come back from drops of blood but now we know he can come back from Ash which is a higher level of regen (Buu-level regen pretty much).

    Doubt it, didn't seem like he was comfortable with it let alone having any control over it. Busting out was almost pure luck because he saw that twig which reminded him of the memories of the fountain of life and Elaine.

    That said, he already has received a tremendous power-up to his base. He really only needs his sacred treassure now to stay competitive.

    This is great for Ban. This is just what he needs. Of course he got stronger as a fighter but his biggest problem was always his horrible durability. Which increased tremendously with this constant Purgatory exposure.

    Best part, the road to it doesn't even feel particularely cheap. Sure it is convenient for two different timelines to operate here but it's not like he is in some clean lab environment where he trains at his leisure and prepares a meal or sleeps. It's been nothing but fucking survival up to this point. And they are still prisoners there, Ban and Mel. They still have not found a way out.

    This makes this power-up way more earned and natural than having a magic time room that somehow just allows you to train. Because no one would voluntarily use this method, EVER. It's insane. And they couldn't even know it would work. Heck, it almost didn't work and Ban was this close to losing himself to insanity and despair.

    Honestly, I am very pleased with this.


    And another thing - the latest chapter means Hawk's durability is no longer purely due to comedic relief. There is actual in-verse credence as to why this pig is so fucking durable. I wonder how strong he would have become if he had been in Purgatory like his alleged brother Wild.

    Not only Ban's body but his soul as well underwent a shocking transformation. He was pretty much babysitting Meliodas without making use of his regen, taking out a bunch of Purgatory beasts at the same time, while previously he was getting killed and forced into that fox darkness beast form by single random beasts.

    And he's doing all this unarmed. Imagine when he get's a weapon, or even more, he recovers his Sacred Treasure.

    Pre Purgatory Ban without his ST could temporarely match lower tier commanders like Gallan through Hunter Feast, or stealth kill Melascula with Zero Sign. Post Purgatory Ban is bound to be an absolute monster :psyduck

    It makes you wonder how old Hawk Mama is when Wild has been there for thousands of years now most likely and is no where close to Hawk Mama’s size.

    That Top Tier potential. :obamabury

    Well, there ARE theories Hawk Mama is the mother of chaos. Which makes her probably as old as the world itself or something.
