While in most of the series, Fat Gum is large, the character can burn off his weight when absorbing powers from foes. In the Season 4 episode Red Riot, the pro hero sheds his fat and becomes ripped after defeating Hekiji and Kendo.

Cosplayer HendoArt captured his new look with an insanely accurate costume which she posted on Twitter on October 13. Referencing the epic battle, the artist captioned her pictures with “Are you the spear or the shield?”

Sarah absolutely nailed the character’s costume, perfectly re-creating his black mask and signature yellow and white jacket which has the letters FG written across it. She even created his orange gloves with metal studs on each knuckle.

Her faithful re-creation of Taishiro Toyomitsu is full of details, such as the torn black shirt which the pro hero ripped after burning off all his body fat. Just like in the series, she also has her yellow hoodie up.
