Mr. B is a nameless parasite who confronts Shinichi. He is a minor antagonist.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Mr. B has shaggy blond hair and is seen wearing a purple vested jacket. In the manga, Mr. B appears to have blond and black hair. His face is much more serious and pointed. He is also more muscular and tough looking, giving him the appearance of a punk. He has black paint or markings around his eyes and wears a black sleeveless shirt and jeans.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Being a Parasite, Mr. B believed humans to be the lower species. Though Migi had failed to take complete control over his host, he held no ill will towards him. He offered Migi multiple chances to join him in hopes of prolonging his own and their life.
He is shown to be somewhat philosophical in his comparison between human eating habits and their reactions to the mincemeat murders. He also advises Migi to read more when Migi expresses doubt on the ability to be transferred from one host to another.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Mr. B is first seen noticing the presence of another parasite from a distance, then begins pursuit. After catching up to Shinichi, he is surprised that Migi failed to take control of the brain. He offers Migi the choice of joining him, of which Migi is distrustful. He then cuts off his own right hand, offering Migi to join forces with him, claiming that together they can share a host and live at least 140 years. Due to blood loss and Migi still being undecided in leaving his current host, he attempts to attack Shinichi in hopes of forcing Migi to relocate. However, in that moment Migi slices him in three. Mr. B is distraught at seeing his body cut up and dies.
Abilities & Powers[edit | edit source]
As a parasite, Mr. B has the basic abilities to shapeshift his head, and maximize the physical potential of the body he's controlling. He can harden the cells in his body for offensive and defensive purposes.
He had knowledge of parasite physiology and how merging with another parasite's host would work. It's unknown if he learned this by guesswork, trial and error or if he was involved with Reiko's experiments in some way.
