Who knows... I guess he just stands around on the temple, looking down...and stuff. Perhaps he just trains warriors to fight, or goes down to fight himself. It's not really explained. When he's introduced, it's percieved that he's pretty much God. But as we see later on, he's far from a perfect deit...

Well, he didn't fight Piccolo personally because he was too busy, ya know, being God and all. He came down to fight Ma Jr. because he finally took it upon himself to defeat well, himself. Keeping in the tradition of him being god, he didn't directly fight Piccolo the first time; rather, Son Goku sor...

Since I started watching DBZ from the dub, I had no clue what was going on. For instance, I thought "Snake Way" meant a big hallway full of snakes. And I thought those golden haired characters were completely different characters. It took a while for me to catch on to what was happening.

Well, after all, he is (well, was) God, and certainly it would be fitting for God to be more powerful than the devil (great demon king, but nontheless, you get my idea).

Yeah, I noticed that too, back when we all accused him of being TrunksMasterSwordsman. :shock: :lol: :? But anyway, I've also noticed a lot of my friends, specifically girls tend to do that. And it's nothing to do with their keyboards. I've always wondered about that...I mean, it's easier to do this...

Dabura is certainly the most Satanic character in Dragon Ball, which won't necessarily be offensive since he's a bad character.


And yeah, Enma, Oni, Kami...cultural differences, of course.

Yeah...perhaps Kami's temple is out of reach of the scouter, or they supress their ki? And I'm pretty sure the scouter detected the power level of the farmer only.

It's pretty well known that Viz "censored" Popo's lips because people would've found it racist. It looks a lot like "blackface," a device used in theatre and such to portray black people in a usually racist manner. I wouldn't say Toriyama is necessarily a racist; Japan's culture is very much differe...

It would've been cool with it ended with Freeza. It would've still been nice, though a little less than the Freeza ending, if it ended with Cell (after all, that battle not only included Goku 'passing on the torch' to his son, but it also had the perfect villain, composed of every major enemy in the...

Well, considering it's a shonen...most shonen series don't really include things that would seem normal. Dragon Ball's more about the fighting than explaining things like that. But really, it's all about Son Goku. He's a pretty immature guy. He probably cares more about fighting than his family. Per...

Well, this is Dragon Ball, and especially filler, so I don't think there's any underlying message or symbolism in that pendant. The only symbolism I can find is the fall of the Saiyan empire/kingdom/planet whatever.

Yeah, it makes sense that Cell would develop more humanoid characteristics as he became closer to perfection. Same with Majin Buu, in a way.

I'd always thought that the possible fusion between Son Goku and Gohan would result in Gokhan or something like that. It's possible that that particular fusion would make him stronger than Vegetto, since Gohan after that power-up was considerably as powerful or more powerful than Goku in SSJ3. Howev...

Correct me if I'm mistaken (which I usually am), but I think that the anime portrayed him with five.

It was evident from the beginning that Son Gohan was meant to be a sort of "replacement" to Goku. First, he surpassed his father in power level when he broke out of Raditz's space pod. Then he beat Vegeta to a pulp. Then he had his "hidden powers" awakened by Saichourou (sp?). Then the whole deal wi...

It's obviously not a Budokai sequel, since Budokai (as I have already mentioned) is just the name Atari slapped onto DBZ 1-3 to make it a franchise. And by adding Budokai to Sparking's name, it's being released not necessarily as a sequel to the Budokai games, but still in the same franchise. The mo...
