The Lord Squad consists of four members: Loco Musica, Leberblume, Sister Gigant, and Lord Enorme. As the name suggests, Lord Enorme is the leader and the organization seems to be named after her. Her goal is world domination.

We currently only know the abilities of Loco Musica and Sister Gigant. Loco Musica fights using sound, while Sister Gigant can transform into a giant. Their powers are quite evident from their names.

The Split from Enormita: Why Did They Leave?

Initially, it seems like the Lord Squad is just an internal name for these four within Enormita. However, it is revealed that the founding members actually decided to leave the organization and form their own group. This raises the question: why would they leave their own organization, named after their leader?

There could be several reasons for this split. One possibility is that they disagreed with the direction Enormita was taking under the leadership of Magia Baiser, Leoparde, and Nero Alice. Perhaps they felt their methods were too brutal or that they were not focused enough on world domination.

Another possibility is that there was a power struggle within Enormita. Lord Enorme might have felt that she was not being given the respect she deserved as the leader, or that the other members were trying to usurp her power. Whatever the reason, the split highlights the complex dynamics within Enormita and the potential for further conflict between the two groups. In this case, we might also see a “an enemy of my enemy is my friend” scenario.

Is Venalita a Friend or Foe?

Venalita’s role in all of this is also intriguing. It is unclear whether he granted the members of the Lord Squad their powers or joined them after the fact. Additionally, his current support for Utena’s group raises questions about his true motives.

One theory is that Venalita founded Enormita with the intention of it eventually becoming what Baiser has turned it into. He might have seen the Lord Squad as a temporary stepping stone or a way to test the waters before fully implementing his plans.

Villain Power Levels: The Connection Between Stars and Strength Explained

Episode 8 introduces a system of villain power levels based on the number of stars on their bodies. The more stars a villain has, the stronger they are.

Lord Enorme, with four stars, is the strongest of the Lord Squad. However, the Enormita girls also have varying star counts. Leoparde, surprisingly, has none, making her the weakest villain. Nero Alice has three stars, while Baiser’s star count is less clear-cut. She has two visible stars, but her pupils and horns also have stars, potentially bringing her total to six.

This system adds another layer of complexity to the power dynamics between the villains and suggests that future battles will be determined not only by skill but also by raw power.

Loco Musica: The Idol Wannabe with a Rude Awakening

Loco Musica’s dream is to be the world’s most popular idol, and she believes that following Lord Enorme is her best path to achieving that goal. However, her singing and songwriting skills are abysmal, making her idol aspirations seem delusional.

Despite her flaws, Loco Musica’s performance in the episode is entertaining, and her character has the potential for growth. The toxic work environment at Lord Squad might push her to reconsider her allegiances and seek a different path to her idol dreams.

Conclusion

The title of the next episode suggests more focus on Loco Musica. It will be interesting to see if she joins forces with the Enormita girls or pursues her own path. Also, the unclear motivations and dynamics within both Enormita and Lord Squad promise further exploration in future episodes.
