You wanted it in the MIDDLE OF THE ANDROID ARC? Its the least busy point in the story and thus the most natural for it.
No, I get why it's placed where it is. What I don't get is why Toei brought Garlic Jr. back for the arc, rather than inventing a new character.

Why does the Garlic Jr. filler arc exist?

I understand that Toei had to play catch-up with the manga, so I'm not really asking why there was a filler arc between the end of the battle on Namek and the arrival of Mecha-Frieza. But why a Garlic Jr. saga specifically? It seems almost random. I'm not complaining; I actually like the character, ...

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

I might be the only person who doesn't want Cooler canonized. It isn't that I dislike the character, but I do think he's too similar to Frieza in appearance and power-set, and Golden Frieza has outworn his welcome with me, not to mention Frost etc. Time to put the Cold Clan on... ice... for a good l...

Re: Are there any examples of a character winning a battle through strategy instead of strength?

Piccolo and Goku vs. Raditz, for that matter. Raditz would have toasted both of them if Goku hadn't taken one for the team.

Re: Would a Super Saiyan grade form be possible that increased speed and stamina at the expense of power and strength?

That's basically Grade 4. They could reduce their power to conserve stamina when not in a battle. I don't think that actually increased their speed and stamina, though. Here's how I see it: SSJ: Speed: 50 (-10) Strength: 50 (-10) Power: 50 (-10) Stamina: 50 (-10) Grade 2: Speed: 60 Strength: 75 Pow...

Would a Super Saiyan grade form be possible that increased speed and stamina at the expense of power and strength?

Basically the inverse of the two Grades seen in the middle of the Cell Arc. Would it be possible to dump energy that normally increased physical strength or raw ki into speed and stamina instead?

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Great Ape Gohan (Namek Saga, Pre-Guru Unlock) VS Dr. Wheelo Aren't these two evenly matched in terms of power levels? IIRC, Gohan on Namek pre-Guru was 3,200, and I'm sure some source or another lists Wheelo at 32,000. If that's so I still think Wheelo wins handily. Gohan is a mindless brute as Ooz...

- Android 19 vs. Dodoria (equal power, limited stamina)
I'm biased, but 19 should walk away with it. Not only does he have ki absorption, but he's also programmed with a library of techniques. Dodoria seems to be little more than a brick.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Android 19, my namesake, is incredibly underrated. Yes, I know he doesn't get much to do. He's completely subservient to Gero, then gets smoked by Vegeta for no reason other than to build up his Super Saiyan transformation. But from a character design perspective he's probably the best thing to come...

Re: How Powerful Do You Think Majin Gohan Would Have Been?

Why are we assuming Majin Gohan would even be stronger than Majin Vegeta, when base Gohan was weaker than base Vegeta by a not-insignificant margin at that point?

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I enjoy seeing Vegeta cower before Broly, and I hope we get more of that. Broly might be a mediocre character, but it's completely worth it if it knocks vegetable head down a notch or two.

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Toriyama even admitted that its fanservice pandering and most intelligent people know it is. Yes, but - here's the kicker - so was Golden Freeza . That's even more egregious, in fact, since at least this will be Broly's first appearance in the official canon. And it ought to be handled that way. No...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I'm happier with Broly coming back than I ever was with Freeza's return. This is the first time Broly has 'existed' in Toriyama's canon; for all intents and purposes movies 8/10/11 may as well not exist. So Broly is tantamount to a new character being introduced in-universe, even if that's obviously...
