Re: What's the point of bringing (Movie 20 spoilers) back?

Before some smartass comes at me about Zamasu and Black, yes, they were unique characters. No, they are not. They are the Western Kaioshin and Xicor/Psycho from Toyble's AF. Mediocre Toyotaro be damned. Everything since 1984 was about money. Toriyama and Shueisha never produced the series thinking ...

Dragon Ball spin-offs, original stories, etc.

I'd like to get some help with this topic: What works for the DB franchise are explicitly named as spin-offs, gaiden, original stories or whatsoever? And by who? I remember some statement by Toriyama himself regarding GT as a "side story" or something, and also some commercial ad for DragonGarowLee'...

Re: What was happening in Dragon Ball on your birth week?

I was born one month and a half before the release of "Bulma and Son Goku". When my wife was born, Piccolo Daimaoh had just take over the world in the manga, and in the anime, Yamcha was battling Tenshinhan.

Re: Why did the animal characters just disappear?

There's a whole plotline in DBO about animal-human discrimination as the main motive for new recruits to join the Red Pants Army, the RR revival. So, there's that for In-Universe explanations, at least for DBO/XV/H (?) canon.

Re: The Movie Timeline

IIRC Xenoverse 2 states that movies (or some version of) happens in alternate timelines/realities. Some remembers if is only one or one for each movie/story/character (namely Turles and Slug)?

Re: Dragon Ball Minus - Current thoughts?

I'm surprised no one mentioned the thing that striked me the most: the nursery tank. Its so an alien concept, for a people as genetically human as the saiyans, to raise their children in an ambient deprived of contact and love, but still more normal than Bardock's special version of newborns beign t...

Re: I'm the Dr. Slump Wiki's new admin, and could use some help

Try to differentiate all versions of a given character or concept for all canons, ala Wookiepedia. That's the polar opposite to the mess that DB wikia tries to be with its (unsustainable and contradictory) unifiying interpretation.

Re: I promise this isn't a hate thread, but why are so many DB fans so ignorant?

Because 1) it really is a very silly series, but more than that 2) it was marketed consciously to the lowest common-denominator in the usa, because Latin America also exists and isnt under Funimation's thumb (which is presumably what you're talking about). Sorry/not sorry. We might be looking at a ...

Re: If Cell Were In The ToP Would He Be Able to Fly?

Elytra. You're speaking about Cell's elytra (singular, elytron). That's not for flying, more like wing armor or sheath. Some beetles family, ie. Carabidae, got them fused with the true wings and thus are incapable of flight. I think that's the case with Cell, taking in account that his second form f...

Re: The Latin American dub ALMOST had Kuririn and Kame Senin as official

Names that change somewhat from Japanese original in the Intertrack version: -(Son) Goku. Mostly only "Goku", even when the original is "Son-kun" or something. -Vegeta (with the pronounced "ge" as in "get") -Pikoro (with the soft R sound) -Pikoro Daimaku (misspronounced from the original japanese) -...

Re: What will happen the day Akira Toriyama (God Forbid) Passes away?

No, Dragonball was not designed to run forever. It isn't Pokemon. Dragonball was designed to have an ending. The merch like the toys/videogames can go on forever of course, that's what happened from 1996-2013 before the series was revived. I agree with you but I guess 2013 onwards you can call it m...

There has been some debate within the fandom (at least on the FighterZ GameFaQs sub-board) on if there'd be any female characters playable as they fear the game may be a sausagefest.
