Re-watching some episodes of the Tournament of Power got me thinking, now I have ideas for a story to do when I finish my current fic (Well... if I ever finish). Pride Trooper origins, written in true comic book style with constant captions commenting on just how spectacular this all is.
Toppo is a man who grew up looking up to the last group of Super Heroes in Universe 11, under mysterious circumstances these heroes disappeared, leaving Toppo to try to continue their legacy. Problem is, he isn't exactly a Super Powered individual, instead ending up as a street performer who entertains kids (While disappointed, he doesn't mind too much, making the children smile is a win for justice in his book!). Though we do see him try to stop a crime in progress... Only to getting his ass handed to him by much more skilled criminals.
Kahseral is war veteran who after an unjust court marshal and rather shitty cards in life, ends up as a hobo on the streets begging for money so he can drink his troubles away. Though when we first meet him, we do see him begrudgingly give what scarps he does have to other hobos. His cybernetic implants are the result of the battle that ended his career, the implants not exactly working correctly.
Dypso is first seen in a montage of job interviews, which for various reasons he is just told 'Maybe' or 'Comeback tomorrow' (With the narration informing us that 'Tomorrow never comes'). Obviously a pretty young man at this point, he returns to his shitty apartment where his mother berates him for not having a job yet. He some times gives cheese to Kahseral when he passes him on the street.
Cocotte is a musician, who we see on giant TV screens, only for the audience's reactions to show more annoyance than entertainment. A quick montage walking us through the worst day of her life as she tries to intervene in a mugging, gets a black eye, is kicked out of her friends house and informed by her manager that she's been replaced by a younger and more modern 'artist'.
Vuon is a rather soft spoken and quiet man, building a home in the middle of a forest where he can be lone with nature. Though similar to Android 17, he deals with poachers from time to time.
Tupper & Zoiray are a circus act and live a rather happy life doing what they do. Zoiray, the 'Sapphire Spinner' and Tupper, the 'Iron Golem'. Well, all until they find out that the circus is paying protection money to the mob, and soon the circus won't be able to pay that money.
Kettol, Kunshi and Jiren would not be members until much later (Jiren would be a villain turned hero to explain his attitude).
The origin would be like this: Belmod is very disappointed with his Universe. Ever since the last team of Super Heroes disappeared everything has gone to shit, villains on the rise and injustice everywhere, with their mortal level plummeting every day. But what can he do to make everything better? Eh, what does it matter, he has a planet to destroy anyway. Blance of Nature and all. It just so happens that the planet Belmod aims to erase next is the planet Toppo lives on. Belmod makes it very clear to the planet that he plans to erase the planet, but offers that if someone is able to beat him, he will not erase the planet. The immediate reaction to this is for everyone to get the fuck off the planet, which disappoints Belmod immensely. Don't these people have any sense of justice?
Toppo, unlike everyone else, refuses to leave. He's never heard of the whole 'God of Destruction' thing and can't let this injustice stand. At first he pleads with Belmod, knowing that he wouldn't stand a chance against the clown, but Belmod just reminds him that this planet will only be saved in defeat. So, Toppo fights, and loses. Badly. But even then, Toppo refuses to give up and makes various proclamations of how he won't give up and that he'd prefer to go down fighting, than turn a blind eye to injustice for even a second. Toppo passes out, but his sheer will impresses Belmod, who tells Marcarita to heal Toppo and take him to their world to train.
And that'd be the start of the first Pride Trooper.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:
Obligitory Fan Fic Plug: Dragon Ball - Another Road

In Z, the characters were so depended on Goku that they couldn't go an episode without mentioning him in some way even by hoping he will arrived, get better, training to get stronger, our last hope, being like him, ect. Goku was wanked to hell in Z, even when he wasn't in the room and everyone else was secondary to him. In fact, this was a major issue Goku had, which is why he didn't want to do anything in the Buu Saga.
