Re: Is the Dragon Ball fandom hypocritical about the "Yamcha meme"?

The idea that Yamcha being a joke/meme character is a Modern DB thing isn't true: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bPx_hK8ZVU Yamcha was always written as a joke since day one, never a badass. How quite (t)droll. You don`t only sound like a broken record but act like one too. Yamcha being a "badass...

Re: Could The Human Characters Develop A "Super Human/Super Human God" Transformation Like Yamoshi Did For The Saiyans?

I`m not complaining if they give them buff forms or transformations and and I know how that makes marlet sense. I`m just pointing out that you don`t require that for the characters to be used more. In the end either approach would have to translate into narrative effort from the part of the creator(...

Re: Could The Human Characters Develop A "Super Human/Super Human God" Transformation Like Yamoshi Did For The Saiyans?

If Toriyama wanted the humans to have an edge, he would've given them one. I think Toriyama/Toei want humans to be obsolete in order to highlight the strength of the Saiyans. Heck, even Piccolo doesn't register as a legitimate combatant anymore. But here's the funny part: Humans (and Namekians) do ...

Re: Could Yamcha have been a good candidate to learn the Genkidama?

Quite a few, considering that: A) Yamcha`s Kamehameha fails against Tenshinhan because of Kiai whereas Krillin`s Kamehameha was outright too weak to hit Chiatzu off the ring, let alone knock him out. B) His Kamehameha was actually billed as powerful and scary in the interlude between the first chapt...

Re: What about Super disservice with characters like Goten, Trunks and Yamcha?

1. Did you read what you quoted? I literally said every notable arc since his debut arc. The first fight is disqualified by that. 2. Yes in the Baba tournament he got his butt kicked a whole fight before comedy shenanigans before getting embarrassed and treated like a joke in the next fight, which ...

By the by, the Invisible Man comes third.

. He saved the world of a Oozaru rampage

Re: What about Super disservice with characters like Goten, Trunks and Yamcha?

No he can’t. He got jobbed our to Roshi in the first tournament, he got sidelined the entire 2nd tournament, was irrelevant in the King Piccolo arc, was beaten early in the 3rd tournament, blown up by a Saibamen within seconds of being relevant in the Saiyan arc, sidelined in the Namek arc.

Everyone treats him like dirt, even the cast. None of the cast did that in the original 42 volumes. I will debate that even in a fandom sense he was never particularly labelled/written a punching bag until the meme started to get big. Lousier luck in the choice of opponents? Sure, but that was the ...

Is it just me or was Yamcha not shown in the ending? In the ending montage he was wiggling a toy bear at Bulla while everyone stood around smiling and chatting/Vegeta stood off to the side like a grumpy douche. Iirc I still don't understand how he can hang around his ex and his ex's daughter withou...

Yup, the spin-off. Best fresh material of the classic world building. Now, don`t get me wrong I don`t hate the new toys. I love Hit and Beerus. I like the Gods of Destruction.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Again, the manga didn't promise any of these characters would be big players. In fact, it made it clear that Tenshinhan, Roshi and Krillin are only there because they need 10 people. The anime made a big deal out of them being on the team, and then relegated them to episodes and episodes of being o...

Re: Even in on his freaking BIRTHDAY!

Expecting class from Funimation is the same as expecting the character being threated with a modicum of care with the current creatives, a worthless endeavour. Popular creations will always outlast the creators but for now, bury the character and move on. No point in being mocked on perpetually. I c...

Krillin and Tien were treated better in the anime, that's a fact No, their fandoms were treated better. The manga treats their characters better by involving them in something actually interesting, rather than diluting their presence and impact with filler fights against fodder warriors. SUrely som...

Read through some posts. What is with people and this notion that characters "Deserve" to be "treated better"? Well, characters aren't real people. Characters exist to serve a plot, and that's it. If characters become detrimental to a plot, a good writer gets rid of them. Characters are best when t...
