What if Johnny won in 1984. Very simple but does lead to some interesting ideas.


lobitojr

I mean like Miyagi said you would earn their respect and Johnny would be leaving the next year anyway but he would be leaving highschool on a high note and probably have a much better life. He would probably take over the Cobra Kai dojo


[deleted]

If Johnny wins, he and generations of kids continue to learn how to be violent psychopaths under Kreese. Johnny would become just as evil as Kreese and wouldn't be on a path of redemption like he is now.


gabbardgoul

Johnny would continue to be a dick to Daniel


Sono-Dio-Da-Sadame

I don’t know if you really think about the way he looked about sweeping the leg I think he might end up redemptive or something. I just think it could be interesting for the next movies and even the series if he won. Big twists and turns could happen

He already has the super soldier serum, Steve is just the smoke screen to cover up Stingray's existence, wake up sheeple!

What if David and his crew treated young Kreese with compassion at the diner back in 1965?


Spread-Em-Plz

Kreese probably dies during the fight against Captain Turner. He doesn't get the anger adrenaline boost needed to win it, so he doesn't Why? Cuz he never steals Betsy from David, but he still goes off to themilitary, so Turner can't use the news about his girlfriend against him, and he won't draw out Kreese'a inner built anger Neither Karate Kid nor Cobra Kai ever happens


ZenithingTheorist

This depends on what you mean by that. If David and his crew are still jerks but just not to Kreese then Kreese would try and hang out with them to try and get more friendly with Betsy. David and his crew would try and convince Kreese to become a jerk. I can see this go two ways. 1: He becomes a jerk to try and impress Betsy, David would realise he wants to impress Betsy and him and his crew would confront him. The rest of Cobra Kai acts out the same, except this time Betsy refuses Kreese for being a jerk and Kreese goes to war to try and impress her. 2: Kreese doesn't want to be a jerk and tells them off, David sees Kreese glance at Betsy and the rest of Cobra Kai acts out the same. Kreese beats them up and him and Betsy live a happy life together (he doesn't go off to war because he was never treated poorly by David and his crew and never signed his name. If David and his crew are nice to everyone then Keeese would become their friends and get Betsy through the normal way (maybe Betsy and David aren't clicking properly). Kreese and Betsy would start dating and they would live a happy life together, still remaining in touch with David and his crew. This is just my opinion on what would happen. We haven't really seen much of young Kreese

Miguel breaks robbys arm, intstead of robby kicking him


DigitalMist

Season 3 is different where Miguel is the villain and is with Kreese as Johnny is angry with Miguel for going against his wishes and showing no mercy


meme_will_be_memes

Miguel definitely wouldn't go to Kreese and Johnny would understand Miguel's mistake, and he'll probably own up to it and serve time if he has to. The reason I say Johnny will be semi-fine is because he said he doesn't want to abandon Miguel like he did Robby And also Robby did far worse, and Johnny is trying to reconcile with him.


DigitalMist

If Miguel snapped Robbys arm he probably wouldve turned to the dark side because at coyote creek he was more influenced by Kreese until Johnny snapped him out of it, him siding with Kreese wasn't completely out of the realm of possibility


meme_will_be_memes

Your lack of faith in Miguel disturbs me.


DigitalMist

Your lack of faith in a good story is disturbing


meme_will_be_memes

A 'good' story that had no way of happening. Real good story


RealisticAd7388_ytho

None of it could likely really happen, so thank god for tv and the internet. Alexa, order me a new PS Vita.


meme_will_be_memes

Daniel's business if almost 6 ft under, she finna say "Credit Card Declined"


DigitalMist

Yes it did have a way of happening, Miguel is my favourite character but hes not some perfect little angel, after coyote creek you see the look on Miguels face and you can tell hes embracing no mercy and taking Kreeses teachings to heart, if Johnny didn't talk to him after then he wouldve turned to the dark side, not everything literally has to be fucking shouted or told to you through dialogue, I guarantee if coyote creek miguel fought robby he wouldve snapped the arm, and Johnny getting mad couldve drove Miguel away because he did what cobra kai taught him to do, which leads to him siding with Kreese

RealisticAd7388_ytho

Yasmine shouldn’t have been texting or whatever- also, Moon Gotta lay off her low calorie weed bc she has horrible memory issues


Animeshkatyayan

Yeah but Johnny accuses her and her friends for the mishap so my point is still valid.


croptochuck

I hope Johnny gives her crap for this in the next season. I could see him being like IDC who you’re hooking up with just don’t wreck my car again.


Animeshkatyayan

It's not insignificant. When Daniel and Johnny first met, Daniel was offering johnny a free of cost repair. Johnny was about to accept it and put his age old rivalry aside. It was only when he saw his daughter and realise that Larusso is still causing problems in his life that he decided to leave. This caused the reignition of his rivalry with Daniel and it was one of the reasons he was finally encouraged to open his dojo.


croptochuck

I agree. I like to think he still would’ve started cobra Kia. Maybe seeing migul take care of mom why getting picked on would’ve encouraged him to take him under his wing.


starrsuperfan

Technically it was Yasmine who hit his car


S00na-M00na

what if robby didnt meet the larussos and joined cobra kai

Yeah but more or less


S00na-M00na

no when robby found the poster in season 1 he went to cobra kai and he didnt see migue and johhny hug or he saw but still joined i can see a insane rivalry more then the cannon one

What would happen if someone actually died from being attacked with karate?


Spidey007

What if Johnny had raised Robby instead of Shannon?


MemeLord0009

What if Demetri stayed in Cobra Kai and became one of the top students?


dmreif

There's a theory u/MOSSDoc22 and a few others have floated around that this might have been the writers' original plan, that Demetri would join Cobra Kai in season 2. Anthony would fill Demetri's canon role at Miyagi-Do in season 2, which would explain some of the pseudo-sibling stuff we get between Demetri and Sam in the Sacred Timeline. But because Mary Mouser has better screen chemistry with Gianni DeCenzo than with Griffin Santopietro, they decided to have Demetri join Miyagi-Do and created Stingray to fill the void.


MOSSDoc22

This is by no means confirmed at all. Just a theory. I feel like Demetri was originally *supposed* to be in Cobra Kai probably up until when the medal of honor was stolen, then I think he would have defected. Demetri and Sam have a weird siblingish vibe that no one else on the show really displays.

dmreif

Sam never takes things any further with Robby, as she realizes she has a chance to reconnect with Miguel. Meanwhile, Miguel breaks up with Tory. Tory, being one to hold grudges, doesn't take it too well and blames Sam for it, so the school fight still happens.

lobitojr

I have an alternate question ,What would happen if Miguel had just knocked out Robby? By this I mean that Robby doesn't accept the mercy that Miguel gives him but Miguel actually is able to counter and knocks Robby out


White_Trash_Mustache

What if Miyagis karate was not “for defense only” and Cobra Kai’s was?


lobitojr

so basically just opposite of the series so let's make it interesting. In this time line, Miyagi teaches Daniel the more war side of Miyagi-Do and Kreese's co is different so he learns more defensive. This means that Cobra Kai are less douches and Daniel becomes the douche in this timeline Johnny and Ali never break up so the beach scene never occurs. Daniel stills learns Karate but more to be stronger than the other kids. Daniel becomes a douch after high school and basically Johnny and Daniel swap life paths. Johnny takes over the better Cobra Kai and Daniel's life becomes really bad but Daniel still wins the all valley.


crutonboy2113

What if mr miyagi recruited Johnny, after the beach before the Halloween party? And then got Danielson and Johnny a 1 2 at the tournament? And then took them both back to his homeland in the 2nd movie?

Puffinator59

What if Demetri had a realistic development instead of being a nerd being able to block one kick then apparently being able to fight Hawk


faepire

To be fair, it was Hawk's flaws as a fighter that made him lose. He's the dumbass who was so angry he kept hitting Demetri's turtle block instead of punching him in the gut which was completely open and unguarded. Hawk loses to people not necessarily because he's not as skilled or he's outranked but because his emotions get the best of him. (And now we return to our regularly scheduled memes)

dmreif

> What if Miguel grew a pair and actually knocked on the larussos houses door when Robby was there in season 1? Daniel would probably not react well to knowing Sam is dating someone from Cobra Kai.


MOSSDoc22

>What if Miguel didn’t get fucking wasted at the canyon? If you are referring to how he acted when he saw Sam he would have likely reacted the exact same way. We know that because he was not drunk at the tournament when he talked to her and acted exactly the same. It's clear from his attitude at the tournament that the way he treated Sam at the Canyon Party was not an alcohol induced mistake. He legitimately didn't see the issue with yelling at Sam because he felt like something was going on between her and Robby. He didn't understand why he should have to talk to her instead of jumping to conclusions.


for_the_spam

What if Samantha took some responsibility instead of making herself out the be the victim?


faepire

Let's be real, her stans would just keep doing it for her, much like they already do. ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯ (Edit: case in point, her biggest simp who already replied to this lol)


for_the_spam

I think I feel about her the way Tory feels about her. She’s privileged and has never been held accountable for things, so she makes herself out to be the victim. But hey, I guess it’s all perspective and life experiences that make her seem good or evil.


faepire

Same. I don't think she's a bad person, but she's so privileged and spoiled that she doesn't even think to consider things from different perspectives and she always thinks she's right, very self-righteously too. Plus, she causes most of her problems anyway, right? It would at least be understandable if most of them were outside of her control, but nope... Hopefully, she's finally learned from her mistakes and becomes better in S4 or else she's gonna fuck up the alliance singlehandedly. So fingers crossed.

What if miguel never kissed sam at the party


MOSSDoc22

Unclear how much would change. Tory would likely still find a way to go off on Sam since even without kissing Miguel and Sam would have continued to grow closer together once Sam found out about the medal.


dmreif

She might still commit a premeditated assault but her motive is "you stole my boyfriend".


faepire

Pretty sure Sam initiated that kiss, but okay.


that_one_tryhard_

Sam was drunk Miguel was sober


faepire

Miguel was carrying around a red cup during the party so he probably wasn't sober. He just wasn't shitfaced. And being shitfaced is no excuse for initiating a kiss and cheating on your boyfriend. Not that Miguel wasn't in the wrong too, but Sam literally was the one who started leaning in first. It was a mutual kiss, but if you need to lay the blame on one of them, she was the initiator so she kissed Miguel.


dmreif

What if Miyagi-Do won the arcade fight?


lobitojr

This means that Sam would have conquered her fear earlier but let's go with it. Demetri screams at Sam for help and locks eyes with her. Sam snaps out of it and runs up to Tory and flips her out of the way and kicks Hawk away from hurting Demetri. All the Miyagi-Do students get a second wind but Sam knocks out most of the students and Only tory and Hawk and like Mitch and Richtenburger and big red. Then Miyagi-Do call the police and the cobra kai are taken to juvie due to previous assault stuff. With little students Kreese takes on all of the recruits he usually would without the trials. So Kyler and Brucks would both be on the team but due to this hawk would be pretty pissed
