Some people think Daniel is to blame for the events of season 2. Some blame Johnny. But we all know who REALLY started it all

Greek-of-Thrones

He is Cobra Kai’s Lord Baelish.


MajoraOfTime

Pretty apt comparison. He's a dumber Lord Baelish. Call him Little Dick instead of Little Finger


Lordpennywise

Lil Fishstick


COBNYC

Fish sticks are dope!


[deleted]

Do you like fish sticks?


Ununhexium1999

You sound like a gay fish


Thayerphotos

was about to say the same


[deleted]

Big gay fish


JapiePapie

Or call him HBO Game of Thrones' Little Finger


mjy6478

I’m not so sure of that after watching Littlefinger in the later seasons.


MrBublee_YT

I'm lucky I started watching that a week ago.


CRJ2875

I want him to join cobra kai so I can see him get his ass kicked again


MajoraOfTime

It wouldn't surprise me if he ended up joining now that Johnny is gone. I could see Hawk speaking up against him joining and Kreese calling him a pussy cause of his reasoning.


NoraaTheExploraa

Holy shit that'd be an awesome way to start Hawk down a redemption path. When CK starts training someone he recognizes as a bully he'll finally see what he's become


neon

Got any lottery number picks?


AC2-YT

*Dwight Schrute Voice* HURWITZ!


Metsca911

Yes! I love this!


miyagikai91

I don’t see Kyler joining, but I do see Kreese doing something that causes Hawk to lose faith in him. As for whether he immediately goes straight after leaving Cobra Kai, it’s a tossup.


Coleisgod1112

Lol nailed it

speedythesequel

Are you a fucking Seer?


MajoraOfTime

I'm not able to see my original comment unless I click on the "view thread" option and haven't watched the season yet, so I'm scared to see what the context is 😅


speedythesequel

You say 3 things. All 3 things happened Look back once you watched it.


MajoraOfTime

I realized what it was as soon as it happened. Gonna binge the remaining episodes tonight for sure lol


stillstuckinthesim22

YES. I’ve always imagined Hawk ditching Cobra Kai eventually, and I have a feeling he’ll do it by his own volition. First Kyler joins, and obviously Hawk is fucking pissed about that. Kreese tells him to shut up and deal with it, and that starts to really shake Hawk’s faith in the Dojo. Then near the end of S3 Kreese recruits Robby, and that’s basically the last straw for Hawk. He realizes Kreese doesn’t give a shit about him or any of the students.


thankyoumagicman

um what the hell


JW2EN

Ding ding ding dude what the hell haha


Jacker320

We got a time traveller over here


x-pert-sleeps

Hello from the future, have you finished S3 yet?


MajoraOfTime

Haven't started it yet cause I've been busy 😢 But I'm gonna try to binge it when I have the time!


TlCTACS

Well...

[удалено]


MajoraOfTime

Yeah just got to that part and realized what it was that I predicted lol. Fucking Kyler


ConnerBartle

Yo man hit the nail on the head


Twister26000

Man is a prophet 😳


Monkey_Thucker69

U a time traveller or smth? Because that’s pretty much exactly what happened


Sour_Patch_Adult

The actor who plays Kyler is a friend of mine. It was really hilarious watching him on the show because in real life he is a genuinely nice guy.


Vivisector9999

I believe it. William Zabka himself was such a perfect asshole playing Johnny in the first Karate Kid, but I've read countless accounts about how nice a guy he is in real life.


BlindBanditMelonLord

His appearance in the final season of HIMYM made me love the guy.


bhind45

> William Zabka himself was such a perfect asshole playing Johnny in the first Karate Kid, but I've read countless accounts about how nice a guy he is in real life. Same for Martin Kove.


CRJ2875

Wow that’s really cool. Tell him I love his work.


[deleted]

Is he actually 38 like it says on imdb?


Sour_Patch_Adult

Lol no he isn’t 38


[deleted]

Good, a couple months ago this guy wouldn't stop arguing with me that he was 38, and I was telling him there is now way.


SoCalDan

A couple months ago, he was 38. He's 39 now


[deleted]

Yeah he's not


burge4150

Says so right on imdb


Thayerphotos

Literally LOLing at this


Ruffstarr

It doesn't give his age at all on IMDb.


[deleted]

Yeah it did before and some ppl were convinced he was some how nearly 40.


UncleLukeTheDrifter

He’s 54

That was daniel in kk3


Zookwok111

He looks at least 40 in Asian years. Src: Am Asian


[deleted]

Yeah I'm Asian too and he looks younger than me, and I'm 19


artuno

Tell him he did such a great job playing an asshole that I hate him, hahaha


ThomasWeston

Does he carry fake jewelry around with him for the whores?!


badtradesguy

can you confirm his age being 38? or 40 now?


Doughspun1

If he looks like that at 38, then medical science must be informed right away


Aravisi

He doesn't look 30 but he does at least look 25. The guy has crow's feet in that photo


UncleLukeTheDrifter

He’s 54


IronBrowncoat

That's so nice to hear! And I agree with everyone else, he's a great actor since I can't stand guys character. Lol


ponytailthehater

Yea tell him he’s dope (like fish sticks)


horusporcus

I think, it's somewhat unfair that he was cast as a villain. Asian Americans males don't get very good representation as it is. Hope, we can see him again. I don't know why, he gives off Bruce Lee vibes to me.


FlokiWolf

Check out Warrior on Cinemax. Based on a Bruce Lee concept. Good Asians, bad asians and a lot of in between. Excellent fight scenes.


horusporcus

Will do.


Monkey_Thucker69

This aged well


TacosAnonymous

That would be some brilliant writing.


neon

Someone must have liked season 3

Are you from the future

r/unexpectedoffice


CaptNegativeKarma

I think he is in college now. Wasn't him and Yasmine seniors in the first season?


CRJ2875

I don’t believe so, I might be wrong tho


rubbernub

You think Kyler went to college??


CaptNegativeKarma

Of course. He is a Korean in socal.


PattyG69

This didn’t age well. We were so close.


TryHard1945

heh..


Vadermaulkylo

It’s pretty amusing that most of this shit started with a blowjob rumor.


Flatwart

Do girls in highschool get bullied with blow job rumors these days? Back in my day, nobody would believe jack shit if I said I got a blow job from a girl.


spicylolipop

I graduated 2015 and my best friend gave her bf a bj and was given shit for it for the rest of her time in highschool so it’s probably still like that


WhiskeyFF

2004 had rumors of a girl who gave a bj, possibly had sex, was considered a slut. High school doesn’t ever really make sense


Vadermaulkylo

Yes, happened very frequently in my school.


AC2-YT

Literally anything sexual is apparently fair game for bullying if you’re not a male at my school


Vadermaulkylo

Girls get bullied for having sex and guys get bullied for not having sex. It’s pretty fucked. Edit: no pun intended lmao.


SteelBunny52

So what you’re saying is high schoolers just want a bunch of gay guys


kinyutaka

No, you're just only allowed to be the giver. If you take it sexually, you're fair game for ridicule.


horusporcus

Don't think closeted gays are popular.


SpaceEnthusiast3

Considering the shit I see on instagram nowadays, probably.


LetsPlayClickyShins

Your problem is you didn't have a group of cronies to hype up everything you said


SteelBunny52

Maybe it’s not the rumour but the person?


astroboy37

Atleast where I went to most of high school (medium sized Texas town) it was kind of the opposite. No guy wanted to date a prude and a girl that did wild shit, just not with any and everyone was the hot thing.


LethalLizard

In my school people give u shit for pretty much anything for about a week then they move on


Thayerphotos

80s kid right ?


FN9_

It was in my day in the early 2000s


RubixCube420

Fishsticks are dope


tommyrib

What are you a gay fish?


RubixCube420

Do you have fishsticks?


QueenRhaenys

What is this, a crossover episode?


Overheat-YT

Kyler ain’t dope tho


twentyonesighs

"Fissticks." The way he pronounces it always irritates me. Ha


AndrogynousRain

Not gonna lie, him and his stooges getting their asses beat by Miguel was one of the S1 highlights.


MajoraOfTime

As soon as Miguel started training I was looking forward to that lol. The next best moment from that was when Kyler went to that party, saw Miguel and was like "uhhh, why don't we find a different spot."


AndrogynousRain

Yeah that was funny. Nothing beats seeing a bully get their fair comeuppance. We all dealt with someone like this in school. It’s why people hate Dolores Umbridge more than Voldemort in Harry Potter. Voldemort is just some snake dude. Everybody’s had Dolores Umbridge as a teacher or boss


LawlersLipVagina

Exactly, not many people have had to go head to head with someone bent of world destruction, but we've all had to put up with that jobsworth cunt who pulls out the 'well actually the rules say...' for any minor petty thing.


pomeloanthony

i never really saw bullies get physical growing up, emotionally though... fuck kids are brutal.


2Legit2Quiz

Would've been great if Miguel looked at him and did a "what's up, man?" face.


Daegon8

And this is what I love most about Miguel.. even after standing up to Kyler and his cronies he remains humble and grounded.. he proved his point and doesn't feel the need to pursue a revenge bullying spree by beating up Kyler every day.. as much as I would have liked to see it. Miguel's success and self improvements never go to his head, and he never becomes a bully himself, in contrast to Hawk and the general mentality of cobra kai members old and new.


Thayerphotos

YES !!!!!!


ImBonRurgundy

When Aisha shouts “no mercy!!” As Miguel is kicking ass


Thayerphotos

You aint wrong


stillstuckinthesim22

I wonder if Kyler and his goons will join Kreese Kai to get their revenge


iswearimnotme

Yasmin rear ended Johnny and fled. Then she was a bully to ayisha(sp?) which contributed to the cobra Kai ranks. Just asking not to forget her contributions


MajoraOfTime

Oh yeah, Yasmine is definitely a huge contributor in what went down as well. She definitely put Daniel Larusso back into his mind (more than it already was)


Thayerphotos

Yasmine deserved much more of a beat down, the front wedgie is just assholery. Aisha is better than that


FunSea3341

Hope Danny finds out he tried to touch Sam so he can whip him


BlindBanditMelonLord

Nah, Sam can kick Kyler's ass herself without any help.


FunSea3341

But Danny would smoke Kyler absolutely which would be more fun to watch


Thayerphotos

Oh good god that would be amazing


[deleted]

f\*\*k yeah.


MajoraOfTime

Reposting because the image didn't upload right the first time


Zuma80s

His parents are from the mean streets of Irvine. Probably raised him like they were on the hard suburb streets.


locknloadDennyCrane

Ricegum looking ass


ScottLS

In his defense he does give BIG gifts.


IHateMaxRoyalGiants

Dollar store Nigahiga


tylerc371

Turns out he’s been training jujitsu at that place in the scene they cut from the show


[deleted]

Where they force the black guy into servitude?


tylerc371

[This](https://youtu.be/QURu5v3sU2k)


Vadermaulkylo

I can see why they cut that but that was actually pretty fucking funny.


kinyutaka

You know what... Just Todd is fine.


tylerc371

I love Johnny


Stirfried1

Wait did this never make it in or was it cut when they moved to Netflix? I could’ve sworn this was in when I watched the first time


SoCalDan

It was cut on YouTube too. You might have seen it already on the sub posting deleted it scenes


Stirfried1

Huh, I guess they must’ve been what it was


2Legit2Quiz

Lol. On a side note, BJJ is definitely more badass than Karate, at least in my opinion.


SoCalDan

You're out of your mind. Is BJJ more effective? Yes. Do I recommend it to people wanting to learn self defense? Yes. But more badass?


RainMaker323

I'm with you there. I did Muay Thai a few years and it's really satisfying kneeing and elbowing people but honestly? BJJers would pretzel me before I could do shit.


astroboy37

It's more practical, but I think most people would find a perfect kick to the face more bad ass than a perfect omoplata.


Thayerphotos

BJJ might be effective but good god its boring to watch


LetsPlayClickyShins

You know what...Todd is fine.


PelicanJesus

Pretty progressive having the thin Asian guy be the bully.


mud-boy

It just sucks that the only admirable Asian guy in the show is a dead stereotype.


ImBonRurgundy

And also a) not know any martial art b) not give a fuck about ‘asian’ culture Good subversion of expectations. Pretty funny when Daniel makes him sushi thinking he is going to appreciate it and he actually hates it.


Lonesome_Ninja

I know race doesn't have to do anything with dickheads, but as an Asian guy myself I just wanted pummel him and to strike first, strike hard, no mercy!!


LOTHROOK

uhh what???


Lonesome_Ninja

Wow immediate downvote. Nice discussion


LOTHROOK

I've never even heard of that stereotype. Maybe keep the racial remarks to yourself..


[deleted]

Yeah, this guy's a pussy who likes to fit in by making fun of his own race.


Rootbeer_Goat

The real antagonist is over reaction


MajoraOfTime

True. And not just talking it out. Granted, if someone torched my car in the name of someone else or if someone spray painted the name of a rival group on a car that was sentimental to me, I would probably overreact, too


kinyutaka

Ironically, not so much overreacting when they stole the Medal of Honor. They had a heated exchange, but no blows, no punches.


Rootbeer_Goat

Also in what world is it a good idea to close the door on a dad looking for his daughter? That was no overreacting lol


[deleted]

Far-fetched idea I know, but I hope he gets his shit kicked in by redeemed Chozen


JackBando

Farther fetched idea:Daniel and Chozen make peace with each other and invites Chozen to Reseda. Chozen beats up every character the fans hate and rides off with Kumiko.


LetsPlayClickyShins

Only after karate chopping through 7 ice slabs


some-sad-knick-fan

I really like Amanda but I’m still bummed Daniel never got with kumiko again. It just made sense in the context of the movies but KK3 happened and they never like bringing back any of Daniels love interests in the movies apparently


NoraaTheExploraa

What... Because they're both asian...?


[deleted]

Yeah, I guess?


[deleted]

If not for him Cobra Kai wouldn't even be a thing. HE DESERVES PRAISE


MajoraOfTime

Add his name to the founder's plaque next to Kreese and Johnny lol


LetsPlayClickyShins

John Kreese - Hardened war veteran and founder of Cobra Kai Johnny Lawrence - Regional karate champion and hard drinking man's man Kyler - Forgets he's a varsity wrestler when he gets in fights with karate white belts. Also fish sticks are dope.


Overheat-YT

Fuck Kyler.


colindidit

I second this comment


jmagnum15

Now it’s double dipped! (one of my favorite lines from season 1)


CrackerCracker1

He has such a punchable face.


duegay

The most punchable face ever


ManGrissle

You cleaned my dads septic tank


RainMaker323

I still blame Sam. Also wtf kind of Name is Kyler?


MajoraOfTime

It's funny cause the name Kyler probably would've made me roll my eyes had I watched it when it came out. But now there's an NFL player named Kyler and I'm just like, "eh, whatever."


Razzle_Dazzle08

I hated him.


oldeastvan

The way he dangled fake jewellery to win over girls was mirrored in the way Kreese deceived Johnny with fake sentimentality. Such great writing in this show.


skippiington

Watch them reveal he’s been Chozen’s long lost son all along or something.


L3g3ndary-08

That damn smile....


HANTON-_-

FUCKING KYLER


whatsurplan2nite

Fish sticks are dope


jaysprout

If Sam hadn't started hanging out with Yasmine, she probably wouldn't have been introduced to Fishdickface. So, really, it's Yasmine's fault.


Zookwok111

Honestly who names their kid “Kyler” and expects him not to be a major douche?


Thayerphotos

He's the real asshole


yorchqro

So true! but I like the odds for Johnny to improve his life due to this situation in general.


Thayerphotos

The only character on this show that has zero redemptive value.


putcoolusernamehere

Unpopular Opinion: we need a Kyler redemption arc


horusporcus

Won't say it's unpopular.


bladestorm1745

Once his ass got kicked they completely abandoned his character


meishWVU

Hate, hate, hate. Loathe entirely


Joverby

What kind of name is Kyler anyway?


MajoraOfTime

It's when you wanna be even more Kyle than you already are


YellowVestMafia98

Fuck Kyler ​ All my homies hate Kyler


lily-callas

Daniel fucked up ofcourse


brunicus

Asians?


MrBublee_YT

Nah, in reality this wouldn't have started if Yasmine wasn't texting and driving. Don't text and drive, kids. It could lead to reigniting a karate war


jobensnowden

That irl 40 year old fuck!!! Lol jk jk


BrBronco

Then he show up in season 3 and it turns out he has been practicing Jiu-Jitsu all this time.


ricardortr

It’s all ricegums fault


Depressed_pumpkinn

I agree


JuanAsapchi

But the responsible really is ...... Sam!!


Monaphoenix

Oh yeah. When she was sobbing saying this was all my fault I yelled “yeah! It KIND OF IS!!!” My son just shook his head as he walked by since I was yelling through most of that bit.


crxckerkiid

Agreed, fuck Sam.


Lilboicoen

Kreese, he encouraged the “war” between the dojos
