What is up all you Dreamers out there! This is the Dream-Eater coming to y’all Live from in my Buddy’s basement. This weeks theory involves one of my favorite card game/anime’s, Future Card Buddyfight!
What is Buddyfight? It’s a card game with a really interesting lore to it. I would suggest going to their official site to learn how to play since there are too many rules and mechanics for me to go over in this one post. The lore of Buddyfight is, the earth is one of many worlds. These other worlds are connected to earth via the card game Buddyfight. Buddy monsters travel to earth to befriend humans and become their buddies. In the anime, Gao Mikado draws a buddy rare card from a pack and gains a buddy about 3 times. Fast forward to the present Gao is on his third Buddy and has lost his previous 2. However, I have noticed a pattern within the show.
In the original series, Gao’s Buddy is Drum Bunker Dragon Fang Slade Terrestial the 13th(yes I seriously memorized all that) aka Drum. Drum was like an older brother to Gao, both would fight all the time but had each other back when it counted. Later on in the series, it is found out that Gao had an older Brother who died from an unknown illness. With this known it makes me think what if Drum doesn’t even exist and is a representation of how Gao misses his Brother. In the second Season or Buddyfight 100, Drum is no longer in his previous form and becomes an Omnilord. Drum’s new form could be a metaphor for his death since in the final episode of the season Drum leaves the show for good. Gao, instead of being upset, is glad to see his best friend go and this could mean he has come to terms with his brother’s death.
In its third season Triple D, Gao pulls yet another Buddy rare card and is met with his new Buddy who is also a newborn. His new Buddy does not have a name so Gao named him Bal. Bal acts like a child, which is understandable considering he was born literally yesterday. Bal’s sudden appearance could be a sign of Gao undergoing a rebirth of some kind. Maybe he started becoming more spiritual and attend a church or something of the sorts. However, in the last episode, Bal has to leave like how Drum did, but the difference is, Gao had no consent with him leaving. Instead, he cried and could not come to terms with his Buddy leaving again. This may be representative of Gao losing another loved one, and now he must go through more grieving.
In the latest season Buddyfight X. Gao, instead of pulling a Buddy rare by chance, forces a Demon Lord Dragon to become his Buddy. The Demon Lord, named Batzz, is more rebellious and rude than the past Buddies we’ve had. This could mean Gao, after losing his brother and loved one, is going through his rebellious phase as a teenager.
Unfortunatly, this is all I can conclude with. There are only 7 episodes as of this moment, but I will revise this theory when the time comes. Thanks, for reading yall, tell me what you think in the comments below. That’s all Dream Out!
