I'm guessing it's cause Silverman has a good poker face.
So if given a losing hand in poker he MUST fold? His power potentially keeps him from bluffing.
With that attitude, Goldman wouldn't survive a second in Gurren Lagann.
So i guess his power is knowing the exact success probability of any given action.
@PlayWight It says allows, not forces. I imagine Goldman can still enter a losing battle if he wants.
As such this does hint on that despite everything else, Goldman is still an exceptionally dangerous combatant.
If his power allows him to estimate the outcome of a conflict, and he avoids arena fights with less than 95% chance of victory.
Then he would still need to be able to beat around what 90% of heroes for it not to be noticeable he only picked weak opponents.
Clearly it's his intimidating haircut.
Interesting. It seems like his power involves predicting outcomes, rather than affecting them per se. So rather than being able to alter the chance of victory, he just knows what it is in advance.
If I'm right, then that would mean he's good enough in a fight to win 95% of the time.
Is Goldman a coward or just highly risk-avoidant? You decide!
But shouldn't his power be telling him that he has a 0% chance against Burk in a fight?
You'd think that they had this conversation years ago.
Unless mr. Advisor was hired rather recently, or maybe there simply wasn't an opponent threathening enought to bother mentioning this topic until now.
"gold" man and "silver" man, eh?
