There we go, a proper fat Doctor XD
One of the most effective ways of making sure that undead can't come back again is to destroy the body completely. Acid is a pretty effective way of destroying the entire body, like stomach acid. That's where Malato's job comes in.
He's great at disposing large hordes however, that kinda just turns him into a garbage disposal for the undead. How he dreads that, it kinda makes him a bit incapacitated. But hey he is saving the city so he's doing good work as a new superhero!
