20 Characters Who Would Thrive in Cobra Kai
No one thought that Cobra Kai would have blown up like this. It feels like from conception onward that it would just be a fun niche Internet video that is played for nostalgia and for laughs in spite of its drama. Yet, here we are, in its fifth season on one of the largest streaming platforms on Earth. It’s so weird… yet so right.
The secret sauce in Cobra Kai isn’t just the nostalgia, but the characters on the show. The members of the dojo follow the “Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy” mantra from the perspective of bullies and the bullied alike. Whether you agree with its teachings or not, the dojo turns the overlooked into badasses, the misguided meek into the brave, and the violent into… well, more violent.
It makes one wonder what characters in popular culture would fit in with the Cobra Kai ranks. Here are some top candidates we think would thrive in the dojo.
