Undead Unluck is a manga series written and illustrated by Yoshifumi Tozuka, which has been ongoing since January 20, 2020, and has now been collected in 18 volumes as of the time of writing. The story is a supernatural adventure filled with humor, so you can imagine the series will be filled with ridiculous powers and abilities. But, aside from these, the world of Undead Unluck is also filled with various intriguing characters, and this article will be dedicated to – arguably – the most intriguing of them all: the God of Undead Unluck. Their name is Sun and in this article, we are going to tell you all you need to know about them.
Sun is a sadistic and petty good who enjoys watching people suffer
The world of Undead Unluck has introduced us to many characters, but only a few of them can measure up to the deity of Undead Unluck, the sadistic and tyrannical Sun. Sun is the ultimate villain of the series and is considered to be the entity responsible for all of the suffering and pain that is present in the world. It is unknown how Sun came to be, but it is known that they created Apocalypse and that they are responsible for imposing rules upon humans, as well as for creating the Negators.
All of this wouldn’t be a major issue if Sun was not a sadistic and petty god. Their personality is very evil and as they are depicted, they don’t really have any redeeming qualities. They created Negators only to see people suffer and the reasons are sometimes very petty. They also seem to enjoy all the pain and suffering they create. At the end of each cycle, they initiate Ragnarok and then start everything over, enjoying a new round of misery they are responsible for.
And while everyone wants the Sun dead (more on that below), it is extremely difficult to do it, as the Sun is a very powerful entity. Their mere presence causes buildings to melt, they can multiply themselves, and they have world-destroying strength. Of course, most of their powers are still unknown, but there is no doubt that Sun is the most powerful individual entity in the series.
Why does everyone want to kill Sun in Undead Unluck?
As per the description we have provided above, it should be more than clear why everyone wants Sun dead, but we are definitely going to elaborate on that, although – to be fair – their personality is enough for someone to want them dead, so… we actually agree with the heroes of Undead Unluck on this one. But, let us elaborate on all of that more properly, so that it all makes sense in the end.
There are two main reasons why the Negators want to kill Sun. The first reason is personal, as the Sun is responsible for making their lives miserable. Sun is the entity that gave them their powers and turned them into Negators and as we have seen, in most cases, it was only to make them suffer. For example, Sun gave Fuuko her Unluck so that it would kill her parents and many people present as well simply because they loved her and Sun did not like it; also, they provided Enjin with his Unburn ability only to stop him from making a dish for his dying mother, thus creating another tragedy. Out of pure pettiness, Sun ruined the lives of all the Negators, which is why their quest to kill them is so personal.
But, it’s not just them they are worried about. The second reason is global. Namely, the world governed by the Sun – with all the misery and the Loops – is an intrinsically unjust world that is governed by a tyrant. In order to liberate the people from Sun’s tyrannical reign and all the rules they are imposing, the Negators want to see them dead, as that is the only way to properly end the seemingly endless cycle of misery.
