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

Bardock could easily just be a cameo or an easter egg here, just as he was in Broly. Even so, I've been expecting a Bardock comeback storyline for a long time. After Broly, he's the next logical step- they're the two most popular Saiyans outside of the main cast and an easy "hype" pull. And it's als...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

You know, as they already have basic models for them, I would love Arc Sys to go wild and just add SSJ4 Goku and Vegeta... I don’t know how they can handle the roster menu anymore, but why not :lol: The game is already overcrowded for my taste, but so far, all the characters so far are perfectly sp...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Is it just me or the interactions that Baby has with the other heroes are basically non-existent? I mean, Baby obviously says unique things to others, but the other characters reply with generic lines, it's as if they didn't even acknowledge Baby's existence LOL. Pretty lazy, but oh well. We were s...

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

1. It has a really good track record for antagonists- starting with Beerus (who we'll count as the first Super antagonist for the sake of argument) most of them are more layered than their original series and GT peers. Moro is the exception since he's meant to be a deliberate throwback to that type ...

Re: Games That Keep You Coming Back?

I haven't played that many Dragon Ball games since I only really got invested in the franchise around 2015. So for me, my big games were Xenoverse 1 and 2, Fusions, FighterZ and that Switch Heroes port- still haven't gotten around to Kakarot. So for me, it's gotta be FighterZ. I've never gotten inve...

Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

Exactly and thanks to Goku explaning the flaws and what is better, that shows us how smart Goku is. Then when we see them training together both strong, then we can think their gains will be big.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

There has to be some kind of Covid-related reason for not having GT Goku interact with Baby. He would be the number one choice for any interactions with him. Perhaps that is also the reason for the lack of a Dramatic Finish since Baby's ending would lend itself extremely well for it. Interesting ho...

Re: Did Freeza ever say, "This is not even my final form" in canon?

Dirty Harry never said "Do you feel lucky, punk?". Darth Vader never said "Luke, I am your father". Freeza never said "This is not even my final form."

A lot of movies and TV shows forget to put their most famous lines in.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Does anyone know if Baby has any special interactions with the characters in the game yet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHND2cJwrf8 Tbh it's kinda disappointing. Has few dialogues with Gohan or Trunks that are more one-sided (no one really recognizes him). Most interesting part is probably mocki...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Calling him Baby or Baby Vegeta would have been fine. Super Baby 2 is just one of those dumb marketing names that they're bound to use but would be smarter to avoid saying out loud. See also Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

Re: Why did Toei make their characters worse in DBS anime?

Digimon Adventure Reboot is done right, even though it was done by Toei. But Toei puts hardly any effort to DBS. You're wrong on that first count there, matey. The Digimon reboot has been atrocious. All it has going for it over the original is better animation. There are like, two different threads...

Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

Something I wonder if people have considered when talking about Super Goku is that he's the end result of the arc Goku went through towards the end of the original manga where he was unsatisfied with his role as protector of the Earth and trying to set up the next-generation fighters to take over th...

Re: How was Vegeta able to witness what took place on Earth while in Hell?

BUUUT, he had no idea about fusion, we know that now after the Broly movie, he heard it from Trunks IIRC, so probably Vegeta being Vegeta stuck around to watch SS3 Goku vs Majin Buu, got angry and destroyed the TV, missing the following fights. I could've sworn he mentioned not wanting to do the fu...

Re: Why all the hoopla about S-Cells?

The obvious comparison everyone makes is with midichlorians in Star Wars. But the difference is that while those seem to come purely down to being lucky enough to be born with them, S Cells are "earned" in a sense that they form in Saiyans with a gentle disposition. It's just the "pure heart" explan...

Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

That image has become so iconic now. It truly expresses in the most accurate way what is so wrong about modern Goku. That difference in Goku's characterisation doesn't make sense at all, no matter how you see it, no matter the point of view. Goku is older in Dragon Ball Super. Goku is more experien...

Re: Why did Toei make their characters worse in DBS anime?

When i recently rewatched original Sailor Moon anime, i ve noticed flanderization seem to be often case with Toei, they take characters traits, and overuse it as series go on. In case of Dragon Ball, it really make me appriciate GT more, as it had characters actually mature, rather than regress. Qu...
