"Characters Guide" -- Let's Get Kickin'

Post by VegettoEX » Tue Feb 08, 2005 11:56 pm

http://www.daizex.com/guides/characters/

It's been a while since I did any work on it, and I'm sure it's been a while since anyone took a look at it. With that said, let's take a fresh look and get back to work!

There's been a nice influx of new people, so I could use some fresh read-throughs and such. I'd like folks to give all of the listings, thus far, a new read-through for inaccurasies and typos. I know Appule needs work; we all discovered a few inconsistencies over in this thread...

But I keep confusing myself reading through it. So if anyone can make sense of what we all said and what needs to be done with regards to his bio, post it over in this thread (don't necropost over in there).

Raditz, Nappa, Kuriza, and Kewi should all be fine (unless you find any typos). It's mostly Appule that I need huge help in figuring out, and Trunks needing a general re-reading.

Thanks to anyone who wants to help!

All I can say is...

FINALLY!

BTW. I already pointed it out somewhere - Daizenshuu DID list one special attack for Raditz, a "Double Kikoha", and Nappa had some "Ultimate Attack" or whatever. And you could list the attacks from games, just for the heck of it.

Also, a neat thing would be a list of appearances of the character when he was absent from the main story. They could be filler (Ginyu Force on Namek, flashbacks with Raditz) or not (the final Genki Dama sequence).
It's party time, Ginyu style!

Nappa's Ocean Group voice is Micheal Dobson, not Scott McNeill
Where's the beef?

How could Trunks be 17 when he arrived to give Goku the cure to the heart virus? In "Trunks the Story: The Lone Warrior," Bulma says Trunks will be going back 17 years into the past on the second-to-last page.
When he talks to Goku, he says he will be born in two and a half years (if I remember correctly)
So wouldn't he be about 14 and a half?

Don't think so, it was practically the same voice Scott used for General Septum in the dub of Gundam Wing.

He also tells the Z Senshi that he's 17. Maybe you're remembering wrong?

Nice and informational guides, me likes. =D But there is one thing though.
Nappa rushes in to attack the remaining fighters, but Vegeta yell for Nappa to cease his attack.
Is my non-native-english-ness getting to me, or should that be that Vegeta yells for Nappa? Do excuse me if I'm wrong. >.>;;

Not that I'm holding it against you either if I'm right. XD Mistake is only human.

No, that'd be the infamous 'Vejita-yell' attack that he uses. It's also known as the 'psycho-scream' from the Drummond-era dub, and 'the sound of something dying' from the Sabat-era dub ;p

The (dead) website ukdb.net had a few interviews with Ocean voice actors. Here's Micheal Dobson's one:

Ah, my bad. I had always thought Scott did those two roles, but apparently he didn't do Nappa or General Septum *shrug*

In the special Trunks is 14 when we first see him, 17 when he goes back the first time to warn Goku about the Androids, and 20 when he goes back again to help them out in the series.

Oh, right, I forgot that.
Then, would that be a plothole?
If he went back 17 years, and where he went back (17 years in the past,) he says he'll be born in two and a half years, that would make him 14 and a half. That's either Toriyama messing up on his math, or me messing up on my math...

No, he was still 17 when he comes back again in the androids saga. He chose to come back 3 years after when he arrived originally to give Goku the heart medicine, but it was never stated how long he stayed in his own time before going back again. Since he looks the same though, it probably wasn't for very long.

I suggest, perhaps in the future, not only having mini-screencaps of each attack listed, but also literally translating foreign language attack names, and noting if they have a dub name.

Duncan: Dragonball Z is a child's cartoon with a fairly rough exterior, how difficult is it trying to give a performance that doesn't sound ridiculously cartoony for an otherwise ridiculously cartoony show?
Why does everyone see DBZ as a kids cartoon? I stopped reading right after this (although it was also because I noticed that my attention span wouldn't hold out with that much text :P )

Because it is.

IN JAPAN. With U.S. standards, uncut DBZ is seen as at least a teen show.

Indeed. The show was aimed for the same age range in Japan as it was here in the states. The difference being, the states have soccer moms with pitch forks and Japan has intelligence. :?

A quick piece of trivia: Radditz DOES return in GT. Look in the upper-left corner.

That's too small to be able to tell what it is. What episode is that scene in?
