SynopsisEdit

Chap 301 - Meruem emerging fully revived by Pouf and Youpi

Meruem emerging fully revived by Pouf and Youpi

Meruem emerges more powerful than ever after absorbing Pouf and Youpi's cells, with both overjoyed at this. However, they sense that Meruem is disturbed about something, and remind him of the food that awaits him at the palace. Meruem speaks of a voice he heard call his name, though he doesn't know whether it was real or a dream. From this, they learn that he's suffering from memory loss, unable to remember why he is there.

Meruem orders them to explain what happened, confused why they look different. Pouf says they sent out their segments to eliminate any enemies they find, but Meruem moves his tail toward Pouf's face, recognizing the lie and asking them if he ate them. Both Royal Guards assure him that it was their own decision, and Meruem tells them to explain things further. Pouf asks him if he can remember their original forms and the first day they served him. Meruem is unsure, only recognizing them but retaining no memory of events. Pouf theorizes that his memories are temporarily lost because of the explosion, explaining Meruem's duel against Netero, and the suicidal bomb he used to try to finish him off.

The word "duel" triggers Meruem's memories of playing a board game, but not fully. As Pouf continues to explain the events leading up to the present and tells him they had no choice but to sacrifice part of themselves to revive him, his clone secretly rushes back toward the palace, excited with the chance it's been given. If he can eliminate Komugi, Meruem will have no way to remember her. He has a 20-minute window in which to do it before Meruem runs back to the palace.

But much to Pouf's surprise, Meruem suddenly sprouts wings and asks where the palace is, stating that the answer he desires lies there. Pouf and Youpi hang on tight as Meruem quickly flies off, with the former realizing it will take Meruem only five minutes to reach the palace at his current speed. However, by seeing all the humans lined up, he hopes that Meruem will remember that his only purpose is to rule all life, with Pouf hellbent on killing Komugi and upholding his duty as a Royal Guard to carry out the Queen's wishes.

Chap 301 - Palm using another of her abilities to track Pouf

Palm using another of her abilities to track Pouf

As he enters the tower and finds it completely empty, Knuckle suddenly lands a hard right to his side, hidden again under Meleoron's God's Accomplice and activating Hakoware. Palm appears from around the corner and says she can observe Pouf from anywhere since she saw him with her eye before he put her in the cocoon. Pouf senses his clone being hit, but does not know who it was since Knuckle was hidden. Meruem notices A.P.R. on Pouf, who explains that someone attacked his clone. Meruem quickens his pace as a result, and the members of the Extermination Team become aware of the fact that the King is still alive.
