Cobra Kai may as well be the best thing that has happened to Netflix after Stranger Things. This martial arts drama has a super engrossing plot and very relatable characters. Banking on sheer nostalgia and playing its card right, Cobra Kai has become a global sensation.
Johnny Lawrence, daniel LaRusso, Robby Keene, and Miguel Diaz are old news. Cobra Kai Season 5 should focus on these new up and coming fan favorite characters.
Devon Lee Will Be The New Cobra Kai Female Fury
Devon Lee did not come up for the better part of the last season. She only made a few splashes in very little episodes. But her aggression and will to win knows no bounds. She is super competitive and does not back down. Devon Lee used to be a member of the debate team before Johnny Lawrence poached her away.
Eagle Fang really needs a bit of level-headedness. Devon Lee is not just brawns. She is also intelligent and cunning. She may not have progressed too much in her debut season but she will definitely make heads turn in Cobra Kai Season 5.
Hawk Has Redeemed Himself In Cobra Kai Season 4
He began his journey as a shy kid. His facial deformity made him a recluse and he had very little friends. Johnny Lawrence forced him to “flip the script.” For the next few seasons, Hawk was a total and absolute badass. And then he had his fall from grace.
Hawk became a monster, his surprising level of apathy even took him aback. So he joined Miyagi-Do and became both a better person and fighter. His new allies had no sympathy for him and his old friends thought he was a traitor. In the end, Hawk withstood the acid test and won the tournament.
Kenny Payne Is Going To Be Pure, Unadulterated Evil
A young kid who just moved to the neighborhood, Kenny Payne was the subject of some intense bullying by his peers. Anthony LaRusso and his pals really made his life a living nightmare. And then Kenny found solace in Cobra Kai. Sensei Kreese and Robby Keene gave him purpose.
Kenny finally stood true to the venomous teachings of Cobra Kai after he lost to Robby Keene. When Anthony came up to apologize after Kenny’s loss, Kenny almost beat Anthony to a pulp. He threatened Anthony with a world of pain in the coming school years. And the smile he gave while saying that was sinister as heck.
Terry Silver Showed John Kreese Who’s Boss In Cobra Kai
Up until now, we thought no one can be as relentless and evil as John Kreese. Even at such an advanced age, Kreese was a force to be reckoned with. He was resourceful, sly as a fox, and willing to do whatever it takes to win the All-Valley. But at least he was not without honor.
Enter Terry Silver. This guy gave us the perfect villain for everyone to hate upon. Terry was not above bending the rules and using unethical practices to get the job done. He even beat Stingray and forced him to falsify his police statement to put Kreese in prison.
Chozen Toguchi – Cobra Kai’s Former Foe Turned Friend
He was once one of the deadliest Karate Kid villains from the original legacy movies of the franchise. When he made an appearance in earlier seasons of Cobra Kai, he helped show Daniel LaRusso the way. Chozen was no longer the spiteful and arrogant kid he was infamously known as. He had changed, becoming a much better person.
Now a less cockier Chozen returns to Miyagi-Do to help Daniel beat Cobra Kai. Since Daniel and Johnny can no longer teach martial arts now that they have lost the bet, the onus falls on Chozen Toguchi to become what he never thought he would in his lifetime – a saviour.
