There was a potential silver lining in his relationship with Cranberry but that petered out when he casually impaled the poor unsuspecting henchman. Being a consumer of worlds could be more dynamic if Toriyama put a spin on it on like Moro wanting to usurp the current celestial hierarchy for some reason like self-determination of mortals. Not every villain has to be nuanced but Dragon Ball lacks that outside of attempts like Zamasu and Jiren.Zarely wrote: ↑Tue Dec 31, 2019 3:27 amThis new arc got off to a mediocre start. It just felt like one of those old 90's DBZ movies but then it's really picked up since around the time Buu fought Moro.
That said the the biggest weak point of this arc at the moment is that Moro is just so lame. He looked awful at the start but now he looks even worse. He's got a generic bad guy personality. His backstory is paper thin and his magic which was the main thing to set him apart just boils down to absorbing energy and growing stronger from it. Basically like Cell on a much bigger level.
He's just an evil wizard from 10 million years ago who are planets and now he's back. Is that it?
Yeah, Moro's repertoire of magical powers is severely lacking. When people remark about how his powers are simply a glorified Android 19/20 escapade, it's telling, I think. Babidi's magic seemed more distinct than Moro's does. To use a popular series like Yu Yu Hakusho, the Sensui 7 were a good example of villains with eccentric abilities. It's not that difficult to construct for a main villain.
