And probably you guys will disagree with me, but I think they give essentially everything to him. The only thing he didn't have is the power to defeat Freeza, but he's still too powerful comparing to an average saiyan.
What about Zarbon & Dodoria?

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

It definitely was very odd, how Shyamalan tried to include so much of Season 1 in the movie; Especially since 80% of it was filler. I mean... Episodes 1-2: Introductory episodes, so obviously include those. Episode 3: Aang's tragic backstory... and I guess Zhao, even if he is pretty lame. Maybe cut ...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

The conflict is Bardock gets psychic visions of planet Vegeta's end (and also conveniently events in the future of Dragon Ball from past episodes as an excuse for a partial clip show) despite having the ability to see planet Vegeta's end he can doing nothing to stop the planet from being destroyed ...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

Very nice catch, I never noticed it! That arc surprisingly had a lot of very small and original details, so it was probably intentional. Remember, though; It's Japanese only. As Gokukrump said, it may just have been carelessness. The timing of it is really interesting though. Plus, it'd explain why...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

As much as I hate to say it, there’s nothing that indicates Vegetto did any real damage to Zamasu during that fight. Actually, believe it or not, there is . It's ridiculously subtle (to the point it may've been an accident), and exists only in the Japanese version... But it's there. Basically, Fuse...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

My apologies, but I don't understand how this is a reason why you love the Black arc's ending. :lol: Because then it would've just been Trunks chopping Fused Zamasu in half with a technique he literally pulled out of thin air... Without even realizing he was doing it. So it's a loss without consequ...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

Personally? I absolutely loved the ending to Future Trunks, for several reasons. --------------------------------------- 1) I thought the "Spirit Sword" was some of the most rushed, laziest writing I'd ever seen in Dragon Ball. I can sort of headcanon a lot of the logical problems away, but... I rea...

Re: Toriyama Reveals What Inspired Mr. Satan vs. Cell!!

Impressive... Most impressive... Actually, that reminds me of that interview he once gave about the symbolism of "Super Buu vs Kid Buu". For those not in the know, the anime had Kaioshin talk about how Kid Buu was the strongest form out of all the Buu forms we'd seen. This "mistake" was present in b...

Re: Toriyama Reveals What Inspired Mr. Satan vs. Cell!!

And I have an uncle at Toei who told me that Toriyama did indeed say this. He also confirmed that Toriyama's favourite Dragon Ball character is Jiren, and he prefers the Funimation dub with the Faulconer score, over any other version; apparently it's a truer representation of his vision than anythi...

My fault then. I thought the line about Saitama licking the tears off a dragon ball fan made that clear enough.

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

I mean, you just need to look at the level of fight between Boros and Saitama to see Dragon Ball fights don’t get even close to that. The only notable thing I saw was how gorgeously animated it was. Apart from that, it still wasn't anything you wouldn't see in typical DBZ. If anything, it was less ...

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

Nah . Saitama is so ridiculously stronger than Goku it's not even a contest. Even if you give Goku Buu-style regen power Saitama still wins. What I see is Saitama kicking around a guy who needs 100% of his power just to destroy Earth. So basically, someone with a Power Level of 18000 or less. Sure,...

Re: What Would It Take For Krillin, Tien, Piccolo, and Yamcha to Catch up to Goku and Vegeta in a Satisfying Way?

Easy. Just have Bulma turn them into Cyborgs, then have them use Kaioken if they're not already doing it (it can be invisible, after all).

Worked wonders for #17.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The Westwood dub music is actually pretty good. It's second only to the Team Faulconer score, in terms of OST quality. What ruins it is the repetitive placement and lack of variety, not the actual compositions. I also liked Brian Drummond's voice better here than in the Ocean dub. He deepened it the...
