Shugarl is a high-ranked demon who uses a practical version of the butterfly effect to fight instead of magic. He is first introduced as a villain in the seventh chapter of the manga, but later saves Idamaria, sacrificing himself. He is smoking in most scenes.
Powers & Abilities Edit
Most of Shugarl's abilities are based in his mathematical knowledge, but he may also use a derivation of magic, which allows him to summon chain blades made of demonic steel.
Preceding his debut Shugarl was already a famous genius known by most of the Demon World, the reason of his fame was the fact he could not just predict any disaster, but also cause them, by using only mathematical equations.
After Ponsol's defeat, Shugarl caused the death of Paul in a way he thought Kucabara wouldn't be able to solve the case, which would cause his body to "disappear in the dust of the Human World". Shugarl pursues Kucabara, Bichura and Paul through the Demon World, capturing Bichura in the process. Kucabara found Paul's Innocence Item, an X-ray of his stomach, and sent him back to the Human World after beating Shugarl with his Eternal Cycle technique.
After being defeated by Legato, Shugarl moves to the Human World, finding the place where Kucabara and Idamaria had trained. He was invited in by Father Selma, where he used his equations to make food, becoming the cook of the monastery. He then met Jupiter, for whom Shugarl developed a paternal love, even promissing to bring her parents back from the Phoenix Hell.
Phoenix Hell Edit
In Phoenix Hell, Shugarl fought one of the strongest demons, the Slaughter Colosseum's champion, Branen Cooper, killing him in order to save Idamaria (because she was important to Jupiter). Later, Lilith awakened and fataly wounded Shugarl, who appearently died, as his spirit was seen saying goodbye to Jupiter.
At the end of Chapter 94: A Fallen Angel, Shugarl is seen stopping Elimona from finishing Kucabara and Legato, stating she was the "angel with bent wings". It is revealed that he was brought back to life by Idamaria using the Apocalypse potion, and, as Shugarl and Elimona fight, the Angels start arriving at the Demon World. Elimona then reveals the true nature of her power and rampages against Kucabara, Bichura, Idamaria, Samus and Shugarl.
- Shugarl's non-magic techniques are based on a practical usage of the real chaos theory's butterfly effect.
