When people say Mojito didn’t care about his universe I sort of can’t believe that and it kind of irks me.
Mojito clearly wears a portion of his feelings on his sleeves. Like yeah he’s disappointed in the way it turned out, and let’s be honest U9 was probably on the lowest of rungs, but if Mojito wanted he could have not entered the tournament. I mean his universe would have been deleted but if he truly thought they weren’t worth saving he could have easily just done away with them.
Angels can choose their Supreme Kai and Destroyer, and Mojito never really saw a need to get rid of Roh or Sidra, so despite his exasperation at them I feel like he saw something in them enough to grant them divination and not just get rid of them himself and start all over again for the sake of making U9 better.
Also, upon introspection, Mojito actually got angry that his universe was in such a bad state that people were leaving it. Enough to bear his teeth and growl. If Whis is anything to go by it takes a lot to make the angels angry because of their usual easy going demeanors. If Mojito didn’t care about his universe then why would he have such a visceral reaction to it’s diminishing state?
On that note why enter the tournmanent knowing he couldn’t find enough fighters. I feel like he was probably disappointed in the fact that Sidra let himself be manipulated by Quitela, and Roh decided to cheat and put them in a really terrible light when it comes to representation, but Mojito also knew that they were fighting a losing battle and allowed them to try and save themselves regardless.
After they were deleted Mojito blatantly says he knew they were going to lose anyway. There’s also the fact that he went with them to try and gather people for their team.
The angels do have an amount of apathy to them because of their neutrality as divine beings, but in the same vein Mojito showed more emotion about his universe than most of his siblings.
I sort of feel like he was one of the few angels who invested some kind of emotion into it - enough to be angry that it fell apart so badly, enough to show abject misery towards it’s state. Someone doesn’t look that defeated unless they have emotionally invested something into into their universe, otherwise it wouldn’t be so taxing on their emotions.
Idk I’ve been thinking about this, especially in light of Mojito’s character because hoo boy he has a stigma that I feel is very misconstrued.
He’s just a guy who knows he’s on the losing end and everything in his universe is going to die around him, but lets them fight anyway despite the fact that deep down he knows what their fates are, and probably saw their deletion as a bit of a mercy killing. When you think about his state, which is probably depression but I digress…. I can’t believe that he’d feel so terrible and watch in disapproval of what the deities of his universe did with sorrow in his eyes and a frown etched into his face only to be labeled as someone who doesn’t care about his universe and was happy to see them suffer.
I’m going to save that particular scene because I’ve ranted about it enough on this blog but it just kind of pains me that so many people think Mojito is an unfeeling piece of shit when he really tbh expressed far more emotion than the majority of the angels during the tournament.
