Hiro Nakamura is Takezo Kensei

You might remember my predictions about Heroes from a previous post I made. If not, here are the basics.

Which one will be Takezo Kensei?

Which one will be Takezo Kensei?

My predictions about Hiro.

My biggest theory has been both confirmed and busted. After seeing the end of last season I believed that Hiro would become Takezo Kensei. With his powers and his knowledge of the great samurai’s adventures it would be easy for him to do. Not to mention the fact the Future Hiro was scary good with a sword. That kind of expertise can only come from practice in battle. It would also explain the connection that Hiro seems to have with the sword and the Takezo Kensei legends.

My predictions about the man who calls himself Takezo Kensei.

If the gaijin decides to abandon the role of Kensei I believe he will become a villain. With his healing abilities he may be nearly immortal. It’s possible that he will live long enough to play a major role in the modern day struggle. He may even be the main villain. We haven’t really met the man that scares Molly so much, maybe it’s the man we know as Kensei.

I was right. Well, mostly. It turns out that Matt Parkman’s dad Maury is the Nightmare Man. He has the same mental abilities that Matt does, they’re just more developed. He was part of the Group of Twelve, just like Linderman, Kaito Nakamura and the Petrellis. There was someone else though. The man in charge. The man behind the recent murders of the older Heroes.

It seems Kensei, now calling himself Adam Monroe, is the one who brought the old Heroes together. He was the one who convinced them to use their powers. He was also the one who eventually corrupted them and turned them. Linderman’s plans to “save” the world came from Adam. Linderman was only following in his footsteps.

Under the cherry blossoms where they first kissed Yaeko tells Hiro that he is Takezo Kensei. When he tells her that he must leave she tells him something else. She will make sure that the tales of Kensei are known. So that the little boy called Hiro Nakamura will have stories to help him sleep.

Hiro is Takezo Kensei and Adam Monroe is the main villain.

    wow, I’m impressed – I thought I was good at tv show predictions (being a series junkie), but you’re better, I didn’t have a clue… ;)

    Thanks. *L*

    I think getting this one right has more to do with all the comics I read when I was younger than it does with TV. This sort of misdirection is pretty common in a lot of comics. Someone you think is a hero turns out to be a villain. Someone who time travels to the past and meets their childhood hero winds up being that hero. I read a lot of comics like that. *L*
