Cobra Kai has a lot of action with a lot more drama. The characters throughout the show have indulged themselves in one or the other chaotic situation. Over the years, we have seen the fight between good and evil. And when we talk about evil, John Kreese and Terry Silver are some names that come to our minds immediately. However, each coin has two sides. In the same way, these evil characters also have a good side. Never Silver, but Kreese once showed his compassionate side on the show, giving us a glimpse of the goodness hidden inside Kreese.
John Kreese showed mercy for this girl and won Cobra Kai fans’ hearts
If we look closely, we can understand why every character is the way they are. John wasn’t always like this. If you have seen his past in the previous movies, you might remember that he was a dreamer. He also loved a girl and had feelings, and was soft. But as time passed by, and the more he experienced the surrounding people, the more brutal he became. Therefore, we have seen mostly the brutal and heartless, selfish John in Cobra Kai. However, this one time, he showed up for one of his students and protected her without boasting about it, making the viewers sympathize with him.
As much as I hate mostly everything Kreese does, his strike first, strike hard, no mercy stuff was absolutely deserved by this asswipe. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ from cobrakai
When Tory was facing issues with his landlord, John got the hint from her behavior. Saying nothing to Tory, John struck first and hard at her landlord’s house. Without showing mercy, John threatened him and almost cut his figures. However, John didn’t do so. But the landlord got the message loud and clear. As a result, he stopped harassing Tory for the rent, and the problem got solved.
