Bad example for three reasons. One, rare does not equal nonexistent. It just means not common. I never said everyone can use magic. Just that most people can(and for the record, how many confirmed ignominious are there, and how many of them were actually people who couldn't use magic, because, if you recall, that's also a fate for criminals). Secondly, I specifically said "in Greenguard". I don't recall the Shapeless Empire being in Greenguard. And finally, San Robin wasn't hiding his mana impairment from just the hero, he was hiding it from everyone, since before the hero was even around(it's his Deep Dark Secret, after all, and a major part of his backstory, so clearly he's been hiding it for quite a while). The reason the hero wasn't off-put by it wasn't because not being able to use magic is common(which it isn't), but because they're from Greenguard where that is a non-issue.
There an lot of examples not one. Like most people you meet can not use magic really now that is why the Hero was not really off put by San Robin. Also there on the same planet there no biologically different so my example of the Shapless empire works. Most people can not use magic. Many of our friends can not use magic Robina, Galanoth, Valencia, Symone. That is why the hero was not off put by San Robin.
Also, you still haven't answered my question: Where did Dove say that magic could be "unlocked"?
It might be written in the some thread made for us to write things so we do not get to these discussions. The problem is I do not remember the name, the thread OP, where it is and that is kinda an issue I know it exists I do not know how to find it. If someone knows the location of the directory I appreciate it.
Still not a case of him surpassing his master. Defeating in combat does not equal surpassing. In fact, it was hinted at relatively early on exactly how he beat the grand elder(which is only actually implied, not confirmed), which is that for whatever reason, the grand elder was distracted, and thus couldn't fight properly. Furthermore, "wanting to surpass the teacher/wanting to be surpassed by the student", as I stated is pretty much only successful if said student is particularly ambitious or evil, not that that desire only occurs when the student is ambitious or evil(though Kenichi admittedly was quite ambitious, it was just a innocent ambition of wanting to protect people from bullies). And that's exactly where that part of the conversation is going to end, because it is otherwise off-topic, and I don't want to spend five pages on it.
Who cares about the grand master the others also expected him to surpass them and said it and he agreed. I am drawing blank in master apprentice works in fictions now but hell if you know more pretty sure the same was there also. One of them want to surpass the other or both do. Come on now does it not make more sense to compare an work of fiction with another work of fiction especially if both are in an magical or supernatural setting.
Also if real world must be involved lets not compare an billionaire having an apprentice who also wants to be and billionaire because that hardly happens and compare an martial artist with his apprentice.
