Hello everyone, welcome to Animehound. The third season of Tokyo Ghoul will be releasing in a few days and as we all know the last season has ended with Hide’s death. So today we’ll be discussing if Hide is really dead or is there a possibility or him being alive or his possible revival. We will take into account both anime and manga and try to find the answers. So let’s start our discussion to find out if Hide Tokyo Ghoul dead or alive…
Hide Tokyo Ghoul Dead or Alive?-Theory
Hide or Hideyoshi, the main character of Tokyo Ghoul, Kaneki’s best friend is surely one of the favorite characters in the whole franchise. He did not have much screen space yet his supposed death has brought tears to many eyes. But wait….before being sure about his death lets to look at the facts from a different perspective.
According to the Manga:
In the manga we see Hide offering Kaneki to eat him and save himself. Now we know that Hide knew that Kaneki was a ghoul and had joined CCG to know more about kaneki, other ghouls and help his friend when needed.
When Hide offered himself he knew that Kaneki would not survive his battle with Arima otherwise.
So it’s quite clear that hide is not stupid or clueless about the world Kaneki lives in. Then why would he give up his life and leave his friend in danger all by himself? Kaneki can easily eat from Hide’s hands, shoulder or even legs and Hide can still survive…doesn’t it seems more logical? Besides Kaneki cared for Hide too much to consciously kill him for his own gain. So after taking a few bites, Kaneki should be level-headed enough the consequences of what he is doing.
Now it is easier to believe that Hide is dead from the anime perspective. We saw him bleeding too much and Kaneki crying and carrying his body. But at the end kaneki had a small smile on his lips, many say that it was because of coming to terms with himself. It can also be because he knew that Hide can be saved somehow? I know that kaneki would never want for Hide to turn into a ghoul but it is also a possibility isn’t it?
Theories of Hide Tokyo Ghoul being Alive:
- First in the anime or manga Hide has not made an appearance after his supposed death. But there are some things that indicate that he may be alive. Like when after being saved by “Scare crow” Amon once asked Kaneki what would be his reaction if someone he thought dead is still alive. Now the only character like that comes to mind is Hide. There is a possibility that Scarecrow who is very weak for a ghoul is actually Hide and he was saved by being turned into a ghoul.
- Another theory is Hide is CCG’s dragon. Nothing much is known about dragon yet so there is a high possibility. Besides we have already seen lots of unexpected twist in Tokyo Ghoul so nothing is impossible. But I don’t think that an important character would die that easily.
