Appearance and Personality
Mule Love is a short child-like Ranker with large blue eyes. He is always seen sporting a baseball cap with a long jacket and blue bottoms; his cap and jacket share the same blue chequered design and his overall attire has a blue-coloured theme. Love is drawn more cartoon-like than other characters.
Love appears to be a very proud and defiant person and will even go as far as to bend the rules to suit his own whims. However, despite his occasional outbursts that match his young appearance, he is generally mature enough to understand situations and accept his mistakes.
Mule Love was born into the Mule Family, a Special Family who managed to receive special contract from Administrator of the 20th Floor which is called the Mule Family Contract: "Iron Man Contract" (뮬 가문 계약: "철인 계약"). He also joined The Chicken Love Club with his superior Augusgus.
At some point in history, Love's parents were murdered by unknown FUG members. Since then Love hated and despised FUG for their crimes.
Powers and Abilities
Being a Ranker, Love showed a very strong close combat technique and also well equipped with various abilities.
Love can strengthen his body immensely with shinsu; he effortlessly scores 13,200,000 on the Shinsu Measuring Device, which is almost 100 times stronger than Viole's Floral Butterfly Piercing Technique.
- Mule Family Contract: "Iron Man Contract" (뮬 가문 계약: "철인 계약", Myool Gabon Gyeyag: Cheol'in Gyeoyag): It's a contract with the Administrator of the 20th Floor which basically enables stamina regeneration on this specific Floor. Contracts of this kind can be acquired by a Ranker from Special Families through a special test.
- 20th Floor Test Director (20F 시험감독관, siheomgamdughwan): On the 20th Floor, Love's shinsu resistance and control is increased.
Love is a close combat fighter, so he fight by using martial arts that seems to have movement or attack style like a "Pitcher" in baseball game.
- Upshoot (업슛(UPshoot!!), eopsyut): A quick and powerful uppercut using white and blue shinsu. It remains unknown whether it uses Wonsul or not.
- Straight Ball (직구, jiggu): A reverse lunge punch strengthened by shinsu. It also remains unknown whether it uses Wonsul or not.
- Slider (슬라이더(SLIDER!!), seullaideo): Love can seemingly "slide" under or through shinsu attacks. Producing an afterimage of himself moving.
- Pitch Changeup (구질 변화, gujil byeonhwa): Arguably his most powerful attack and in his opinion the most difficult technique he used during the fight with Viole. It is a devastating close-range blast using red and black shinsu spinning around one's hand. It was strong enough to knock down Viole easily.
- Cut Fast Ball (컷 패스트볼, keos paseuteubal): It seems this technique is used to shoot Pitch Changeup's black and red shinsu as a big wave at long-range, as this name is seen after Love used Pitch Changeup on Viole, but not after Viole used the copied Pitch Changeup. The only difference is that in the latter case, the shinsu is just floating around Viole's hand, whereas Love shot it.
- Beam Cannon (광포(光抛), kwangpo, lit. "Light Throw"): Love focuses shinsu in the palms of his hands and then releases it in a white beam. A circle of the same colour is created around the ray so it seems this attack is Wonsul technique.
- Changeup (체인지업, Cheinjieob) is a technique that require Mule Love to gather and concentrate shinsu in his palm to form a yellow ball. He then throws it right into the enemy to create a huge powerful shinsu blast.
Love can also use the rare Reverse-Flow Control technique to stop the movement of his enemy. Love used it to stop Viole because he decided that the fight between them is no longer necessary. During the fight, Love actually intended to kill Viole because he is a FUG Slayer Candidate, to him, FUG is an enemy who killed his parents. But after realizing the potential of Viole with his instant copy skill, Love was very impressed and then suppressed his revenge feelings. In their hand to hand combat, Love quickly grabbed Viole's right arm and decided to stop the fight to persuade Viole for using his powers for good.
Wonsulsa (원술): Love can use his shinsu in a perfectly circular motion, making it more powerful while retaining the same Myun and Su.
- Blue Oar (청루(青櫓), cheong loo): Love can create large blue bubbles of shinsu to ride on allowing him to move around very quickly.
- Mule Glove (뮬 글러브, myool geulleobeu): An Armor Inventory shaped like two huge gloves. It's capable of increasing shinsu resistance and is passed down in Mule Family. It is used by Love to play throw and catch game using a room remote controller as the ball.
