I'm more interested to see Freeza react with the Nameks. Imagine he tortures one...says "Just like old times!"

They are probably a mix of Toriyama, Toyotaro and Yamamuro. I imagine all the important characters are Toriyama and Toyotaro and all of the jobbers are Yamamuro.

Why on earth would Piccolo fuse with Nameks from U6? Like...what?
but let's face it , crazier things have happened in DB.
...Not really, tbh.

Piccolo isn't fusing with these Namekians. And if he does, it will be the craziest thing to happen in Dragon Ball.

Spent my time since these pics came out trying to figure out the puns; here's my thoughts so far based on the themes already made clear by other characters:

Universe 2 (meat)
Bikaru: Mixed up version of karubi (kalbi)
Zaaroin: Sirloin, with ‘z’ instead of ‘s’ at the start
Haamira: Mixed up version of harami (skirt steak)
Puran: Mixed up version of ranpu (rump)
Zaabuto: shortened version of zabuton (means cushion normally, but apparently means chuck flap in meat terminology)

Universe 3 (Italian food)
Paparoni: Pepperoni

Universe 4 (spices)
Kyauei: Dropped syllable from kyarauei (caraway)
Daakori: Mixed up and dropped syllable from koriandaa (coriander)
Monna: Mixed up and dropped syllable from shinamon (cinnamon)

Universe 10 (elements)
Jirasen: Most pieces of this name are found in puraseojimu (Praseodymium)
Obuni: Mixed up version of Niobu (Niobium)
Jirukoru: Similar to jirukoniumu (Zirconium)

Universe 11 (kitchen items)
Kunshii: Mixed up version of shinku (sink)

Too tired right now to keep going with this right now, but definitely want to keep researching tomorrow!

U6 Namekians for U6? Holy shit! I was actually expecting at this point that there won't be any other two characters there and they'll just handwave it. I mean, there was a point made about the U4 missing guys, but none about those guys. It really would be something Super would do :lol:

I don't think the second one looks a lot like Slug, but the first one is just dark skinned Piccolo. Don't mind it, really. Hope their designs are good, really curious how U6 (possibly evil) Namekians dress!
I really don't want Piccolo out now. He needs to meet those guys in some way. Especially Saoneru!

About the names: I'm glad everybody has one now and we don't have to call them weird things, but my God are some of those hard to remember. A lot of those guys really aren't named by Toriyama, cause he always kept things simple. Maybe the CR sub will simplify some of those.
Also, with the leak a while back, we have a name and a design still unrevealed, so that leaves only one new character left to show up in some way. Of course, unless it's the Ganos clone, though I don't think so to be honest.
English is not my first language !

My breakdown of the new and old transformations. Hope to update it soon with many others!

Cool, we got all names. Well, still missing two for U4, that's gonna be big.

Two namekians for U6, it was expected and I wanted it. Let's face it, U7 namekians are too peaceful, the one that was cool, Nail, was sacrificed to make Piccolo useful. Let's see what this two bring, interaction with Piccolo is gonna be interesting.

Technically we're only missing one name for U4; we have Damom, though he hasn't been officially revealed yet.

I'm so hyped for these U6 Namekian fighters! Hopefully they will have a great showing and interactions with Piccolo. I also think they will be evil.

Maybe Piccolo will get a power-up thanks to them? It doesn't have to be fusion, they might know some way to get stronger which Piccolo doesn't.

There are two new namekians, this is a golden opportunity to have piccolo powerup, from fusion to new techniques to new transformations which they discovered, the possibilities are endless..

That definitely makes sense. I think the super duper important chars like Jiren I think Toriyama solely designed as the solely designed GoDs that Toyo drew ended up being exempt unfortunately.

If they had namekian dragon balls in Uni6, they would have restored Earth using that. Why did Champa bet super dragon ball for our earth??
Lets hope that they will give us some reasons

Yeah you're coming across as a prick. Whether it was his design or not, that doesn't mean he can't get inspiration from it. Who are you to say that Toriyama can't be inspired by something that wasn't his design? We just had a freaking homage to Hulk and Loki with Broly fighting Goku. Yeah it wasn't specifically Toriyama, but you're saying it's not possible for someone to say "hmmm.. that's a neat idea. I might look into that.."

You turned a simple statement about wanting Goku to have a more physical change to making it seem like I wanted a copy and paste of SSJ4. Hop off dude. You're just looking to criticize someone.
If stated fact is 'coming off as prick', fine by me. Why would he take inspiration from a design that he had nothing to do with and goes against the simply designs he has been using. It isn't me 'are you to say that Toriyama can't be inspired by something that wasn't his design'. That fact that Super Saiyan 4 hasn't been seen, mentioned, or doesn't even have a nod like Broly's Super Saiyan form tells me that Toriyama isn't looking towards it, especially since he made the U6 Saiyans have no tails.

This is a discussion form. If you don't want to discuss, then don't reply if you think I am 'just looking to criticize someone'.

Oh, it's true. I forgot about him. So much mystery about them, it was said Damon has special habilites. Also, Tenshinhan sensed them, maybe it's just they are invisible. Not that big thing.

Gods in U7 didn't know about dragon balls, so maybe in U6 either. Although for some reason he knew about the super dragon balls. But he could have asked for his Earth in the first place... You know, DB...

The same reason Freeza was killed off in RF only to be brought back AGAIN, the writers didn't think too far into the future.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

The HTC thing kind of seems like a writing issue more than a character issue. It's like blaming Goku for never mentioning it before too. Even if we did blame Piccolo, the only person that would have changed things for was Vegeta and trunks right? They would've fucked it up just like they did in the actual events .
He got his information and he still screwed up killing Piccolo. Even Piccolo admitted that he screwed up. And he did get cocky. If he wasn't, he would have ended Cell the moment he got all the information all out him instead of sitting around talking and bragged about how he played Cell.

As I said before to you, using plot to excuse story doesn't move discussion. In story, Piccolo nor Kami telling no one about the Hyperbolic Time Chamber was foolish. Especially when Piccolo admitted that even with his power he couldn't take on all of the androids. Goku had no way to mentioned it before then since he was in a coma and dead the Saiyan Saga.

Knowing Trunks, he would have gone after the androids, or the androids wouldn't be around Cell so Cell wouldn't get perfect right away after tricking Vegeta.

Wishful thinking: One of them sows off a Namekian Transformation and smugly eliminates Piccolo, thus pushing him to seek out this transformation after the tournament.

Namekians could offer an interesting fight considering Gohan's training showed us that Piccolo can still control his limbs when maimed. Now, I'm just imagining one of the Namekians playing football with the other's head, bouncing it around so the head can fire blasts at opponents.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:

I wonder if there is any specific reason the namekians were made to look exactly like Piccolo and Lord slug..
It's not like it isn't possible to make them look different, we saw many respectably different designs at planet namek

I imagine for a Goku fan, this "Goku is awful" at every turn must be getting a little tedious by now.
It gets border line creepy when I see people write about these violent kill fantasies they have for certain characters. "I want so and so to have their skull crushed and their brains scooped up with a spoon and then eaten. Then have their heart ripped out and be worn as a hat because that's what they deserve."

I don't mind the dislike of a character, but I'd find it a lot easier of people could learn to relax a little bit. We're all fans of the same franchise. It doesn't have to be an "Us vs them" situation all the time.
Oh fuck, this shit was funny as hell. :clap: :clap: :clap: :lol:

I'm pretty sure Goku was the most popular character in the poll by a decent margin.
Asked and you shall received. From Dragon Ball Forever in 2004. This is Japan only:

Best Characters
1.Son Goku: 6,235 points
2.Vegeta: 2,527 points
3.Son Gohan: 2,131 points
4.Trunks: 1,487 points
5.Piccolo: 1,176 points
6.Son Goten: 798 points
7.Kuririn: 736 points
8.Majin Buu: 421 points
9.Freeza: 324 points
10.Android No.18: 204 points
11.Mister Satan: 201 points
12.Karin-sama: 185
13.Kame-sennin: 172 points
14.Cell: 170 points
15.Yamcha: 163 points
16.Tenshinhan: 125
17.Bulma: 112 points
18.Android No.17: 98 points
19.Yajirobe: 93 points
20.Videl: 86 points


I remember back in the 90s Goku was usually one or two since Vegeta is almost equal to Goku in popularity in the US.

Overall, there is no evidence of Goku being 'hated'. Unless you compared him to Superman who has a very loud and vocal group of people who hates him, which makes people believe he's unpopular, when the opposite is true.
Why don't you post the latest poll?

I want the guy that looks like Piccolo to be convinced to merge with him, to make The Green Machine even more special and powerful. Piccolo is already a combination of different types of Namekuseijin (dragon-clan and fighter), now he can add a Namek from a different universe to that.


WTF? That shit is not going to happen, if there is a merge it will be between Saonera and Pirina since they are fighting for the universe 6.

This will have something to do with Piccolo no doubt. Excited to see how this plays out.
And with Tenshinhan since he was the only one who sensed them.
