Elements of DB that look dated

When something is dated, it can’t necessarily be for better or worse, it is what it is. So you can either talk about how awesome or awkward something looks in DB or you can be on the fence about it. These are things I’m split on, though if you push me I’d be supportive. Goku an idiot – Nowadays peop...

Re: Can Someone Please Explain To Me Why Would Akira Toriyama & Many Others Had Chosen To Do An Absurd Series of Retcons

Toriyama keeps his story loose and free, so it's easy for him to make rewrites here and there, whether of his own choice or on request by others.

Neither physique really matters IMO, what counts is the silver hair and the aura.

Re: Would Goku actually give Thanos the infinity stones?

If someone explained to him that they were as precious as his grandfather's Dragon Ball, then I think he'd guard them seriously.

I don't see the point. Freeza was defeated already so why does it matter what his backstory is?
I was referring to seeing more of the characters Cooler and Cold.

After Freeza, his brother Cooler and father King Cold really deserved more time. The family of the most feared tyrant in the DB main universe would have been a great insight into Freeza's background.

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

My opinion speaks for characters in DB and DBZ, Toriyama's own work. Master Roshi has a lot of history that could showcase him as one of DB's best fighters. By connection, his sister-sibling Baba counts too (and that connection too). Lunch's history as a bandit should have been explored. Chi-Chi and...

Not really, because the character roster tends to shift over the course of the story.

Who is worthy to lift Thor's hammer Mjolnir?

https://i.insider.com/579566aedd0895346a8b488d?width=1100&format=jpeg&auto=webp In terms of worthiness, I'd say Gohan and/or Future Trunks. Goku's an idiot, Vegeta's too proud, Krillin's too cowardly, Roshi's a pervert, Piccolo's a demon (though he could be a runner-up after the above two), Goten a...

Re: Possibility of "Llec", "Appan", etc (reincarnated villains)

In Japan reincarnation is a sacred thing, but in DB if it's got to be done as a wish then I doubt it has much strength.

And Ztidar sounds like a weird name for a reincarnation.

Re: Parallel Freeza, parallel Goku... who's next?

Goku Black is not parallel Goku... he is not even Goku in the first place. But didn't Black Goku originate from a parallel version of Goku that Zamasu swapped bodies with? None of the Universe 6 characters are direct one-to-one alternate timeline versions of Universe 7 characters or anything like t...

What are we talking about here? What parallel Goku and Freeza?
Frost and Black Goku, who came from parallel universes.

While the Universe Tournament focused on different races from other universes, that doesn't mean parallels don't exist.

Parallel Freeza, parallel Goku... who's next?

Parallel Namekians
Parallel Vegeta
Parallel Raditz
Parallel Gohan, Goten and young Trunks, who managed to surpass their parents (though I doubt it)

With a multiverse, parallel possibilities and variations are infinite. Who knows whether the writers will draw more on this concept?

Re: (Early) DBS Slice of Life: Does it work?

I believe that DBS's early slice-of-life stories works out well enough. We see how Goku and his friends are leading their non-combat days, in relative contentment and occupied with their own errands/goals, and it gets the viewer into the story in a good enough manner. It's also faithful enough to To...

Re: Humble Background.

There is more retconning going on in DB than should be needed. First we have Goku as just being lucky, than he was rewritten into being the only survivor of a world of warriors (who are themselves rewritten to be nicer than they were before), and now he's turned into some sort of chosen one. Why doe...

Re: Why don't vegeta and goku wish for eternal youth?

They age slowly, so it doesn't really matter.

But that's a wish maybe Bulma should have done.
