But yeah her punching him in the mouth. Worst possible thing ever.
Clearly she should have done the honorable thing and kicked him in the junk!

It's a lot less painful than where Super 13 and Toppo punched him. :lol:

They are not fighting for survival and you know that. Goku can easily blow her of the ring with a kamehameha.
Well yeah. Not saying Goku couldn’t handle her easily because he can (at least when he hasn’t been completely depleted of energy). Just pointing out that we shouldn’t be surprised by cheap shots

It's not dirty. It's perfectly fair unlike dick punching or eye gauging.

It's a fight, who cares about fair?

That's infinitely more illogical than saying "she's a bad character".
And you’re arguing with a straw man since nowhere in any of my posts have I ever claimed “she's perfect in every way”. Nor have any Cali fan said this, here or otherwise.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

The way I see it, you can either fight clean or fight dirty, and Caulifla is easily a dirty fighter. She's a gang leader, for goodness' sake. "Proper" martial arts fighting is not the first thing that comes to mind.
Not seeing how this picture shows Cali as a dirty fighter. I took martial art classes for years and punching in the mouth isn’t dirty even in tourument rules. That’s why you wear mouth guards.

How is getting punched in the mouth worse than being decked in the eye or schnoz? You're still getting punched in the face regardless. Getting a kick in the dick sucks more.

LOL, are people just looking for reasons to mindlessly hate on Caulifa? Now characters can't punch each other in the face?

What is this, bizarro world? Are we all watching the same series? This is the most bizarre thing I've ever heard.

The way you respond to criticisms (even minor ones) of her suggests otherwise....so, it's not really a straw man.

As much as I like Kale, I really wish she would just find her own person to fight against instead of always following Caulifla around wherever she goes.

I think they just want Caulifla to be the one being punched in the face.

I loathe Caulifla more than anything in DBS right now and fully agree that she can punch someone in the mouth during an exercise where you punch things to win.

Like... I'm genuinely surprised that this is a thing being discussed. o_o

While getting smacked in the mouth is never cool...

1) nothing in the rules says its an illegal move. You could grab someone, keep kneeing them in the groin until they pass out then throw them over the side and it would still be ok.

2) Theres a lot worse you can suffer. The ol groin shot is long standing dirty take down for men and women, in women's case your hitting them right in the pelvic bone....ouch. You have the deep ovary shot, this is nasty and hard to pull off. Basically you strike the area above the ovaries with your index and middlee finger extended. This is can also be used as a sort of nasty gut punch, this basically it involved extending my index and middle finger, bending my are at the elbow and the repeat striking hard and deep to the targets abdomen. That said I'm fairly shore that if you do it on anyone with some descent muscles you'll bust your fingers. You have the eye gouging, always nasty, and fish hooking. Attacks with the intent to maim are always dirty as they can cripple someone at worse or at least ruin their ability to fight, they usually involve strikes to the joints, spin and neck. Then there's just plain cheating with cheap shot, improvised or conseled weapons and nasty stuff like poisons.

We called that "The Stinger." They don't let you use that no more.

Suddenly a little tap in the mouth don't seem so bad dose it?

Would be nice. Right now Kale's kind of the Goten to Caulifla's Kid Trunks.

Kale was in more promotional materials than the other two, maybe Caulifla will be rung out at some point and Kale will be forced to become the hero.

Caulifa's personality is a mix of Goku and Vegeta. Why would anyone not be fine with her personality if you like two main characters?

No, he's not. You're jumping to a conclusion.

At this point, what with Toriyama seemingly bent on having those two as a set, I really think they'll be eliminated simultaneously. Possibly while still in the fusion. But yeah. I really want Kale to become her own independent character here. Possibly duke it out with Gohan since those two are similar in the "not really a fighter but has dormant, overwhelming power that's triggered via emotion" and "fighting for their loved ones" department.
