You said earlier that you have seen positive feeback about 17 and I am saying what I have observed about the other characters is that they are more popular than 17.
This is dumb.

17 was written off the show so he's not as popular as characters thrown in your face constantly for 20 years, sure.

17 has always been popular considering how little screen time he actually had, that's why they brought him back for GT, gave him extended role in Heroes, and is now back into the main cast in Super.

Since his return in Super, the feedback has been really good for 17 (his looks, voice, personality and abilities), the only negative thing was "how he got so powerful", which isn't exactly linked to the character itself but Super's writing.

After 17 shines in this arc, he will definitely rank far higher than he did just based off Z.
PREACH ! this is everything i've been trying to say.
17 might get a little boost in popularity but after a few months his popularity will be back to normal.

1st time: Freeza on Namek
2nd time: Cyborg Freeza
3rd time: Pikkon knocking out Freeza in Hell
4th time: The "fake" Freeza in the Tuffles special from the videogame
5th time: Freeza in Movie 12 where Gohan kills him
6th time: GT appearance
7th time: Return of F and in Super

Also if you count the Bardock special as another appearance for him that makes 8.
I consider using his likeness for points as even more Freeza appearances.
Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

If Freeza does not join the team, I will stop watching Super.

But seriously, I really do want that to happen and have been pulling for it since the arc was announced.

Sorry but this is a serious comparison man? Vegeta and Piccolo are part of the main cast, Freeza not. That would not be the 4th time but the 8th! Yes I'm considering the TV Special, the lost OVA, fillers and GT because are all part of the animation so it counts as the times he came back in the franchise as a whole
And what if they bring him back to turn him into part of the main cast ? Why shouldn't be be allowed the same privilege as the other characters ? I would get it if he was going to be a villian again but this would be different.

I made a bet with Alee9977 that Vegeta won't be beaten quickly by an opponent. If I lose, I switch my avatar to Vegeta getting beat by hit. If I win, he switches it to Vegeta holding Black by his hair. This will last a month.

It would be hard to write Freeeza as an ally in my opinion. There would be so much animosity and tension between Vegeta and Freeza that there would certainly be a confrontation. Vegeta would never allow Freeza to be on the team.

Keep in mind Freeza destroyed his home planet, killed his father, forced Vegeta to work for him for many years, and brutally beat him & killed him back on Namek just to name a few. You don't just forget that and let the guy become your ally. Other Z fighters wouldn't like it too, Krillin would have nightmares and everyone else would be weary.
Vegeta forgiving Freeza would be great character development for the both of them. Vegetas had a lot of his terrible shit be forgiven, so he'd be a hypocrite if he never forgave Freeza.
Yes but Vegeta eventually got the point of making it up by attempting to take Buu out by blowing himself up, then helping with the Kid Buu fight and throwing his pride away with Beerus in order to save everybody. Forgiving Freeza out the blue based on absolutely nothing would not be great.
I didn't mean forgive him immediately. It could happen at the end of the tournament​.

My biggest issue with Frieza returning is actually...he doesn't fit with this sort of setting?

Like the tournament has an emphasis on teamwork and tactics, and Frieza's never going to play ball with those filthy monkeys, the bald midget who cut his tail off or a Namekian who despises him. Not that I imagine Krillin, Piccolo, Gohan or Vegeta would be okay with him on the team since he's killed them all at one point or another. Hell, he's tried to kill all four of them at least twice each. Tien, Roshi and 18 are probably similarly not okay with this.
Speaking of; a rule of the tournament is no killing. Which is Frieza's favourite past time. Killing everyone and everything. Often for no reason. Including his most loyal henchmen. For minor infractions. Because he's Frieza. Instant disqualification?
Favourite User quote:

1. Goku (Universe 7) has eliminated 6 competitor & Vegeta (Universe 7) has eliminated 6 competitors


"Fuck."

People want Frieza back? Hasn't he suffered enough humiliation?

Maybe he could lose to Kale or Cauliflower.

Freeza absolutely wouldn't gel with the rest of the cast, but it'd be an interesting predicament for exactly that reason.

In-universe, I've argued that someone as capricious and amoral as Beerus, backed into a corner at this point, would absolutely think about reviving the almost-as-strong-as-Goku-and-Vegeta Freeza as well.

They should just revive Frieza so they can all have practice against a potential Silver/Golden/Platinum Frost.

This ridiculous voice has not yet been denied by any source? Is a bit frustrating continue to have the feeling that such terrific senarius is possible.

Of course, I will not have the slightest interest to follow a series that touches a huge levels of ridicule plot like this, so i hope it will be denied as soon as possible.

Nice to know that there really are two female Saiyans. But we pretty much knew this was the case since "Kale" was revealed.

I'm so glad the speculation can end now that we know they are two different characters.

That NEP, seems they wont BS Gohan's powerup as Goku was only SSJ2 fighting equally with Ultimate Gohan, yes Toei keep it that way, have him go SSJ3 for all I care (Ultimate Vs SSJ3 will my dream match finally come true?!) you guys shoulda went with Goku going SSJ2/3 with the others as well.
