The Blizzard Group (フブキ組 Fubuki-gumi; Viz: Blizzard Bunch) is an organization comprised of B-Class Heroes, under the leadership of Fubuki. In terms of membership, the Blizzard Group is among the largest within the Hero Association, and holds significant influence among B-Class heroes.

OverviewEdit

The Blizzard Group seems to rely on their sheer numbers to overcome villains in battle, and the members divide any resultant bounties among themselves.

Their main target now is to recruit Saitama into the group at any cost to strengthen the group even further since the group is now fully aware of Saitama's true strength. In spite of the situation, they acknowledge him as an official member of the group without his knowledge. Right now the group serves under the command of Saitama Group after defeated in a competition.

AppearanceEdit

The Blizzard Group's uniforms consist of black business suits with white collared shirts underneath, dress shoes with white socks, and matching ties, regardless of gender. Weapons are a matter of choice between members, but largely consist of clubs, nunchaku, gauntlets, or other melee weaponry.

PlotEdit

Human Monster SagaEdit

The Blizzard Group ArcEdit

Fubuki and her subordinates Eyelashes and Mountain Ape enter the ghost town era in Z-City in an attempt to recruit Saitama.[1] They introduce themselves to Saitama, but he was unimpressed by their offer. Fubuki orders Eyelashes and Mountain Ape to attack him, but were sent flying with one punch.[2] Fubuki proceeds to showcase her powers and attacks Saitama with a psychic barrage, but Saitama is not impressed by her ability. Saitama withstood all of her attacks and even patronizes her about being a hero. She asserts her will and continued to attack, this time with a box cutter, but was caught up by the impact of Genos' attack on Speed-o'-Sound Sonic. Saitama quickly got between Fubuki and Genos' attack, which injured her slightly.[3]

Monster Raid ArcEdit

The Blizzard Group surround Fubuki

The Blizzard Group arrives just in time to rescue Dynamite Man from the heroes mind-controlled by Do-S. They then proceed to confront Do-S and as she is about to land the first strike on the group with her whip, Fubuki catches it mid-attack with her psychic powers.[4] Despite the combined efforts of the Blizzard bunch . Every member, excluding Fubuki, succumbed to Do-S's mind control, as their strength in large numbers ultimately proved to be their downfall in the battle. Using her telekinesis as well as a series of dodges to keep her now mind-controlled allies at bay. During a combined assault by the mind-controlled heroes, Fubuki attempts to avoid harming her compatriots by utillising a wave of telekinesis to stun them. While she was busy trying to hold off her subordinates, Do-S's finally manages to land a hit on Fubuki with her whip after multiple attempts before.[5]

Fubuki was then whipped multiple times and thought to have finally succumbed to Do-S's mind-control. Under the assumption that Fubuki was under her control, Do-S expressed her thoughts vocally thus revealing her plan to use Fubuki to lure out Tatsumaki. The mention of her "little" sister and her plan to use her as bait angers Fubuki and subsequently she attacks Do-S, using her Hell Storm technique, which slightly injures Do-S. As it turns out Fubuki did not succumb to the monster's mind control contradictory to her initial assumptions. Angered by the Fubuki's resistance, Do-S changes her mind and decides to kill Fubuki instead of using her to lure Tatsumaki out. Fubuki then comments to the monster that her "older" sister would come anyway.[6] Following an explosion in the backdrop of the fight - Tatsumaki arrives at the scene. The Tornado of terror immobilized the hostile heroes with ease - however, allowing the Do-S to flee the scene in the process. Fubuki is then sent home and Tatsumaki flies off in search of more prey.[7]

Tatsumaki effortlessly destroys the Mysterious Being and belittled Glasses, a new member of the Blizzard group and the focus of the side-story - for being weak and leaves, taking Fubuki with her. Saitama soon arrives at the scene, and as the Demonic Fan begins to reassemble itself, Glasses implores him to flee - only to watch him put down the Demon-level Being with a single punch.[8]

Struggle of the Blizzard GroupEdit

Fubuki group and new car

The Blizzard Group's new car

The Blizzard Group is in need of a new car. Fubuki suggests that there are plenty of flyers nearby and if group works together, they should be able to earn 5 million, enough to buy a new car. The Blizzard Group begins on their part time jobs for a week. They work tirelessly, but only manage to earn 3.5 million. Luckily, Fubuki earned 2 million by herself, thus fulfilling the goal.

The rest of the Blizzard Group are all very confused about how she was able to earn so much. Fubuki stated she "put her body on the line". This led the group to misinterpret Fubuki's statement, until she revealed the bounty flyers she completed. The group manage to buy the new car. Simultaneously, they receive a call of a monster on the loose. They charge forth with their new car, but end up stuck in traffic. In the end, Saitama kills the monster instead.[9]

NumbersEdit

With the exception of Fubuki, the rest of the Blizzard Group were unable to understand why their leader was so patient with Saitama, who was playing a video game while listening to Fubuki's offer for Saitama to join the Blizzard Group. As one of her men suggested in attacking Saitama, Fubuki turns down the idea mentioning just how strong Saitama is; thus Fubuki challenges Saitama, and his "group," into a competition where the losing team has to obey the commands and wishes of the winners. It was then later the Blizzard Group had gained a gist of how strong Saitama is after seeing the “Saitama Group,” which included both King, Silver Fang, as well as Genos, much to their bewilderment. However, this was all in Fubuki’s expectation where she refrained from mentioning what kind of team battle would take place until Saitama signs a contract, which he imprudently signs without reading it. Knowing that her team would be unable to defeat Saitama’s team, in a competition of brute force, Fubuki was able to trick Saitama’s team into a video game competition - believing that they were not proficient in video games considering their current backgrounds. As Bang, Genos, and lastly Saitama were defeated, Fubuki then began to gloat in how she would have Saitama, along with three S-Class heroes, join the Blizzard Group. However, Fubuki miscalculated as she was unaware of how good King was at at video games as he managed to single-handedly defeat her thirty gamers with ease. Thus, the Blizzard Group was forced to obey Saitama’s team as they lost the bet.[10]
