The previous chapter of Nanatsu no Taizai marked the first official appearance of the Demon King in the series and the story is now at a really crucial point. Although there will be some kind of fight between Ban, Meliodas and Wild against the Demon King, the spoilers suggest otherwise! The spoilers for the upcoming Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 272 are out now and we’ll discuss them in this article.
Meliodas and Ban are in Purgatory where they met Wild, presumably Hawk’s older brother; and in chapter 271, they had a conversation on how the Demon King kidnapped Hawk and sent him to the real world to keep an eye on Meliodas. By the end of the chapter, they are on their way to confront the Demon King in order to escape the Purgatory and they finally get to be face to face with him!
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 272 Spoilers:
The trio meets with the Demon King and Ban is shocked to see how big the Demon King is! Wild tells him that he became that way by consuming the beasts of Purgatory which also resulted in his enormous strength.
The Demon King wonders how they reached Purgatory but later realizes that the boar acted as their guide. Suddenly, Wild charges at them but is flicked away by the Demon King. Ban and Meliodas prepare themselves to fight the Demon King, but he attacks the duo with his sword. The Demon King tells them that he’ll not let them to get to the real world and attacks again which results in Ban’s right hand getting cut. It quickly regenerates and he uses “Physical Hunt” on the Demon King, but instead his own power gets sucked out of him.
Meliodas and Wild catch Ban and then Wild decides to go up against the King on his own. He unleashes a thunderstorm by using Zig-Zag Wild and then uses Spinning Wild to drill through the ruler of Purgatory, but none of them work on the Demon King as he grabs Wild and slams him on the ground.
The Demon King then tells Meliodas that he’ll not let them cross over to the real world to which Meliodas replies that he’s not the one who gets to decide that!
Nanatsu no Taizai 272 Spoilers and Leaks
The fight continues between Meliodas and his father, who unleashes a thunderstorm on his son. Meliodas uses Full Counter on that attack but even that doesn’t seem to hurt the Demon King. Meliodas then reveals that the Demon King’s magic power is called “The Demon King” or “The Ruler”!
The Demon King then tells Meliodas that he wants to know about Estarossa before he crushes the trio. He further states that he knows of everyone in the Demon Clan and yet he can’t remember about him.
Meliodas tells him that Estarossa was born without the power of darkness and was weak and basically a coward. The Demon King continues from there saying that he took pity on him and gave him a decree which shocks Meliodas. He further states that everyone who knew about Estaross got setup and there’s only one person who’s behind all of it. Meliodas has an idea who it is – the one who betrayed the Demon Clan just like him.
Meanwhile in the real world, King, Tarmiel, Sarmiel and Derieri are on their way to rescue Elizabeth from Estarossa when they notice someone’s following them. It is revealed to be Gowther following them on Manta Hawk!
What Does All This Mean?
Neither the Demon King, nor Meliodas, remembers much about Estarossa which raises a lot of questions. Is he really the son of the Demon King and brother to Meliodas, and if yes, then how come he became so powerful when he was born without the power of darkness and was basically a coward? Also, why can’t anyone remember him?
We also know about one other person who betrayed the Demon Clan, like Meliodas did, and he was the original Gowther – the one who created the doll Gowther we all know.
Since Gowther was also mentioned in the manga, it is clear that the memories of the Demon King and the others were manipulated at some point during the Holy War which is the reason why no one remembers Estarossa. But the power required to manipulate the Demon King’s memories should be huge and there must be the involvement of someone equally stronger, like the Supreme Goddess, in order to pull that off.
Whatever the case, we’ll know more about the backstory of Estarossa in the coming chapters. Till then, you let us know what you think about the spoilers of the upcoming Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 272 and if you liked them!
