Freeza had such great development. They turned him from one of the best pop culture villains ever and turned him into a Saturday Morning Cartoon villain.
So he's Japanese Joker.

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Freeza is pretty different now than how he was back on Namek and before. Especially during the ToP. For a DB villian that's a big change, he even agreed to GIVE GOKU HIS ENERGY FOR GENKI DAMA. Frieza also seemed a lot more mature in DBS Broly. Back in the Namek arc, he wanted to live forever. Now h...

Re: Beerus's Attitude Towards Potential Destroyers.

Zeno does realize that Beerus and Champa suck at their job (he recognizes this in the Tournament of Destroyers arc), sadly he never actually acts. Despite his realization, he seems to not care all that much. We shouldn't blame only the Destroyers, you're right, in fact I have also been very harsh o...

Re: Old Broly's Madness

His madness could be at least partly due to the trauma he experienced as an infant. He was stabbed, afterall.

Re: Beerus's Attitude Towards Potential Destroyers.

Having a single monarch at the top does not make it centralized. Feudalism also had a monarch at the top but it certainly wasn't a centralized system. Zeno is effectively a ruler only in name Zeno is not, in actuality, a ruler only in name. There are rulers actually like that where the monarch/empe...

Re: Beerus's Attitude Towards Potential Destroyers.

The main problem in my opinion is just how divded the God hierarchy is. You've got so many Destroyers and Kais, and then several lesser deities under them, and all these gods end up bickering amongst themselves instead of doing their job. To be honest a centralyzed system would be more effective. T...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I’d rather a Hollywood produced Dragon Ball animated film try to replicate the style of the Dragon Ball manga, similar to how Into the Spider-Verse replicated the style of the Spider-Man comics. The Disney style of animation is just too generic and “clean”, in my opinion. The Dragon Ball (Z and Sup...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Pixar movies all kind of just blend together at this point. Same goes for the films by Walt Disney Animation. Both of those studios have the same sort of style. I didn't mean Pixar themselves have to do it. Just that it could be sort of Pixar-styled. Something like what the game Overwatch does with...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Personally, I think Disney could make a great Pixar-styled animated Dragon Ball movie (it would have to be based on classic Dragon Ball and not Z, or Super as I think that animation style wouldn't work too well for those series). I could see live-action working too, if done right, and if it's Disney...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I don't know what they could possibly do that would be more fitting for Goku than discover he has more mountains to climb. That's what any protagonist does. They climb mountains. It's the type of mountain that may or may not make it interesting. What they could do is give Goku a different (but rela...

Re: DBZ Got Lucky...

Yup. There wasn't much competition when it came out that was doing what it was doing. I think there was enough competition. There was Fist of the North Star, Saint Seiya, and American cartoons like X-Men. And while all these were popular in their own right, Dragon Ball still blew them out of the wa...

Frieza likely would have regardless. He achieved Golden without ever knowing that Goku and Vegeta achieved god forms.
He knew Goku survived a fight with Buu and Beerus.
Buu, yes. I don't think he found out about Goku fighting Beerus until later iirc.
