In "The Defenders" (Marvel's The Defenders, S01E08), there is a scene in which Detective Knight shoots Bakuto with a gun but nothing happens to him.


As far as we know, none of the five fingers of The Hand are impervious to damage. They can be cut so I assume they can be shot, too.

How was Bakuto able to survive the gunshot?

Best Answer

We're kind of speculating but Bakuto is different from the other leaders of the Hand in that he's already died.

Bakuto was killed by Davos in Iron Fist S1E12 Bar the Big Boss.

The others, apparently, have extended lives rather than being resurrected...certainly Alexandra wouldn't be that worried about her illness if she was invulnerable.

What we know of resurrected beings comes from Nobu who was killed by Stick in Daredevil and, again, it seems the only way to kill a resurrected person (in this universe) is to decapitate them (Nobu, Harold Meachum) as Colleen does shortly thereafter.

Answer 2

In that event it could be that Bakuto was wearing some kind of armor inside his clothes. when Misty shots him, it seems bullets hit Bakuto, but didn't do much impact as bullets normally would.

Bakuto comes forward while he gets shots and it shows that he just couldn't need to think about that. He wasn't worried it seems, plus the reason he may knew that hand would end that night and he wants Coleen to be with him. Maybe just escape from other hand members at that time, let them die and rebuild his own hand later with Coleen.

I know, all these are speculations. Hope this may helps at least a bit
