Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

And how does he save him? By not fighting him? Essentially, yes. If he can avoid a senseless conflict by using his words, I think he would. Vegeta has shown that he has enough wisdom these days to do this. That wouldn't be a wise strategy against a person who keeps attacking him and getting stronge...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

I watched the movie and thought it was okay to mediocre.The animation was average and bad in some parts especially with the Freeza/broly and fusion scene. People are praising this movie likes it the best movie ever even though it barely has any story and is just a big fight like the ToP which was a...

Re: Best Ways to Enjoy DBS (from a 20 year DB fan who nearly left the show)

#1. Lower Your Expectations. #2. Turn Your Brain Off. #3. Don't take the show too seriously. #4. Don't get too invested in side-characters. #5. Engage with the fandom, but do it in ways that are enjoyable to you. This has been been my attitude towards Dragon Ball in general for years now. I'm way a...

Re: Piccolo & Android 18 post-Tournament of Power

Okay, this is getting a little absurd. Absence of evidence =/= proof. You can make that assumption but there is nothing to back it up. No mention of Piccolo means no training with Piccolo up until the hours before ToP. This is your issue. I literally conceded this point to you two posts back, but y...

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

Why should Vegeta try in that scenario to console Broly? I didn't say console. I said save. If he cares about his illustrious race so much, you'd think he'd try to save them, even if they are trying to kill him, you'd think he'd at least try calm the situation and explain things. He wasn't in any i...

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

I think Vegeta would be the last person Paragus would want to be convinced to for to drop his grudge since it was the wild discrepancy in power between Broly and Vegeta as infants that fuels King Vegeta's decision to cast out Broly. True, but my point is that Vegeta, the Saiyan savior didn't even t...

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

You aren't making any logical sense. My problem is he feels too strongly for alternate universe Saiyans, one of which he met once before the tournament, the others he's never met, and others he's only heard stories about. He doesn't show this same care to the Saiyans of his own universe. No interes...

Re: Piccolo & Android 18 post-Tournament of Power

In the extra FTrunks arc chapter, Gohan mentioned he had been training in the gravity room. No mention of Piccolo. https://imgur.com/r/dbz/lg0BW Oh, well, if this is the case, this doesn't omit that he trained with Piccolo. It's only saying that at this time he is using the gravity chamber to train...

Also, considering all though in Vegeta's inner circle of family or allies consist of the remaining Saiyan's in his universe, and it's made demonstrably clear on several occasions he gives a shit about them, I think it's safe to say that he does care about the Saiyans (who are left) in the his unive...

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

Paragus made it quite clear he held an antagonistic attitude towards Vegeta, so why should Vegeta give a shit about him? I mean, Paragus made Broly into fighting machine for the purpose of killing Vegeta over a grudge that based on what Vegeta's dad did, and not Vegeta himself. So I think Vegeta ha...

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

I'm a bit mixed on SSJB Evolution/Advanced. Aesthetically speaking, the form is horrendous. But I like the concept behind it. It's Vegeta doing what he does best: brute forcing his way to a higher echelon of power in a moment of desperation. And this time it more based on a selfless desire, which I...

Re: Piccolo & Android 18 post-Tournament of Power

Honestly, including RoF scaling just makes everything a shitshow unless you want to inflate everything and cling to the old Saiyan Beyond God form stuff so that somehow Piccolo surpassed that in a matter of months. I just ignore RoF in general except for SSB ~ Golden Frieza. Referencing the Saiyan ...

Re: Piccolo (fighting against #20)

Correct Tier 1- Goku, Vegeta and Trunks This three are strong enough that everything up to Android 18 is fodder. Tier 2- Piccolo Can smack around Android 20 but isn't as strong as the Super saiyans. Arguably, I'd say he's stronger than even Trunks. He displayed better durability feats in the initia...

That's an interesting thing to consider. I wonder if a Namekian has ever joined Frieza's army or the Galactic patrol.
There's a single panel showing a Namekian member of the Galactic Patrol in Jaco.
Really!? Wow, that's cool. I'm gonna have to give Jaco a reread. Thanks!

Re: Characters who were wasted in the TOP (potential wise)

Blue Evolution is one of the few power-ups in post-Z DB that actually makes sense, and one of the few in the whole franchise that has any actual character behind it. I don't get why so many people hate it (other than just being Vegeta-haters) Blue Evolution isn't Dragon Ball and it isn't Vegeta. Th...

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

I've made my opinions pretty clear. Broly and the concepts surrounding the original were worthy the general quality of storytelling and concepts of the rest of the series. I'm sorry but personally, I've always felt the original Broly story was pretty awful to which the new movie rectified quite nic...

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

"Canonizing" Broly was an acceptable idea because he's a Saiyan and he's stupidly popular, so whether you like him or not, there are lots of interesting things you can do with the storytelling and background lore there. It was enough to make Toriyama feel invested in rebooting him. I can't say the ...
