Gaunter O'Dimm has been shown to be the most powerful character to appear in The Witcher series thus far with powers that range from minor illusions to reality warping, all feats Gaunter shows have been effortlessly achieved by said man which makes people wonder, how powerful is he?
THIS THREAD WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
I'll be starting this off with Gaunters first appearance in white Orchard during the main game of the Witcher 3, in this event Gaunter showcases knowledge on people he has not met and covers it up with basic reasons as to why he has this knowledge and even avoids Geralts questioning on his knowledge, Gaunter also denies being omniscient but this is later questionable when he is shown to have both answers and knowledge on almost anything that Geralt asks or the fact that he seems to have an answer to nearly any troubles that Geralt faces, the only answers he doesn't have involves people's free will and the choices they make with their free will and his lack of knowledge on ciri's location, it's a type of nigh-omniscient, he also showcases his teleportation when Geralt turns around and Gaunter seemingly dissapears:
Gaunter does not appear again until his major role in the DLC Hearts of Stone.
Now onto his first appearance in the DLC, Geralt has been taken prisoner on a ship due to reasons I'll go over later since its tied to a feat from Gaunter, in this scene Gaunter appears on the ship out of thin air to strike a deal with Geralt, once the deal is agreed upon Gaunter dissapears once again and conjures up a storm that washes the ship on a Beach:
Once Geralt reaches the agreed upon meeting place Geralt questions O'Dimm about his powers and suggests that he's a mage O'Dimm response is that he believes that magic is mere "childish hocus pocus" which would mean his powers could all come from his reality warping, he also speaks of a few of the many wishes he can grant such: making ones body more agile than before and making ones mind as fast as lightning:
Now this scene show Geralt fighting a giant frog monster, this monster was shown to turn into a man once it's killed that later turned out to be a prince which led to Geralts imprisonment and this man was transformed by none other than Gaunter O'Dimm:
Now this scene shows the immortality and powers Gaunter can give to people, the man Olgierd was granted both immortality and his smoke ability, once the fight concludes Geralt chops Olgierds head off but Olgierd simply reattaches his head showing he can not be killed by normal means:
Now this scene is when Geralt is in the middle of completing his contract with O'Dimm by Granting Olgierds three wishes, one of those wishes is to show Olgierds brothers ghost a good time, Geralt is the only one that can both see and hear this ghost and said ghost can possess Geralt as well, when the main purpose of this mission is complete the ghost refuses to leave so O'Dimm appears yet again to force the spirit to leave by eating an apple.... I'm serious, O'Dimm takes a bite of the Apple and it forces the ghost out of Geralts body, onto its knees and screams in pain, the effects of this ability are potent enough that even Geralt and shani were starting to feel it, this showcases Gaunters spiritual awareness and soul manipulation:
This scene shows Gaunters control over time and gives us some depth on his powers, I won't go into a lot of detail since the video is pretty self explanatory so I suggest watching all of it for some neat info:
This one shows O'Dimms use of tricks and mind attacks, a blind professor was tricked by O'Dimm to be put into a circle that was supposed to protect him but if he where to ever leave it he would die, said professor was stricken with constant nightmares and visions, the reason for the blindness was due to him discovering an ancient scroll that dates thousands of years and had info on who O'Dimm really is which pointed to the name "Evil Incarnant":
This next scene will be one of the two endings that both showcase some impressive feats from O'Dimm, the first one is deemed the good ending in wich Olgierd and Geralt meet and is greeted by O'Dimm whom is walking on air, Geralt challenges O'Dimm so Olgierd can keep his soul so O'Dimm accepts the challenge and sends Geralt to a dimension that he created and can manipulate, in this dimension he creates shadows that represent monsters that Geralt had fought before and are just as dangerous as the real thing, it also shows his use of illusions as he shows one of Geralts friends leap to her death, it also shows O'Dimms ability to exist inside of reflections in mirrors and water, Geralt wins the challenge so O'Dimm lives up to the deal and leaves forever, but before leaving O'Dimm tells Geralt in elder tongue that he cannot be killed and will return, in short summary of abilities used: dimensional BFR/manipulation/Creation, use of illusions, levitation, shadow monster summoning:
In the bad ending, Geralt allows O'Dimm to take Olgierds soul, this show O'Dimms ability to suck Souls and turn people into ash with a touch( the same thing would happen to Geralt if you fail to complete O'Dimms challenge):
Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.

Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.

Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.

Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.

Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
