If you were to see a GT character made canon in DBS Who?

Post by SSJsambosoldier » Tue Aug 11, 2015 5:33 pm

we all know GT is heavily flawed and to many fans non canon but if you were to reintroduce and remake a villain or arc from the series into Dragon Ball Super, who or which should it be?


I think Bebi Vegeta was the most unique villain and had the best arc. Would be cool to see that remade to fit into the God Saga of Dragon Ball Super

Majoob

He is probably the most creative and best concept. They could count it as his transition to SSJG tier.

I'm agreeing with this one. Majoob was underused in GT, which is a shame.

Yeah, Super Oob is a cool concept. I would however prefer a different design. I like him wearing his blue Goku-esque gi.

Cell with Goku absorbed would be nice. I think I need to start some sort of a campaign to raise Cell awareness and get more people on the track to perfection.

Bringing back another old major villain with some new hax power up wouldn't be a good idea in my opinion. I like your idea, but the whole brining back old villains instead of making new ones is getting old in my honest opinion.

Here's the thing though. Nobody says he has to be a bad guy. We got four main villains in Z. Two of them turn good. One of them comes back from Taco Bell at god level. The last one is left to bitching in commercials about why he's not in anything. Now Dragon Ball Online had this great idea to make Cell-X, but that's not the Cell we all know. Let's have him be that amoral, apathetic character that causes mischief. Or maybe, like how Vegetto would possibly forget Boohan killed everyone or absorbed anyone and file notarized friendship documents, Cell and Goku can have a new dynamic; except Cell doesn't really like Goku and kicks him while he's down. The possibilities are endless. It could be like in Xenoverse how he's a mentor with the strongest Kamehameha in the game. Perhaps he's stronger than most everyone and decides to dedicate his time to drawing quality animation. There's an idea. Make him the narrator that also draws the show. Wakamoto making sarcastic quips about the cast, who can also hear him.

I've always entertained the idea that it'd be neat if Super Perfect Cell sparred weakened Gohan, realizing his potential and told them he'd return at a later date, stronger than ever, so they better be too. He comes back sometime during the Boo saga, expecting another tournament, but bam, Boo's there. Team up+betrayal, who knows.

Show him some love like he's Bernie Mac.

This. Oob didn't get as much love as he was set up to get during EoZ, and I thought Majoob was a cool concept. The reincarnated Pure Boo absorbing Mr. Boo to get his Majin magic-ness back.

At least bringing Majoob back would get something done with Mr. Boo, right now it looks like he's set up to be nothing but comic relief in Super.

Also this. Cell was a great character, and he is the only major villain that was just ignored after his death.
Vegeta's a Z-fighter now and consistently made the second strongest character.
Freeza was resurrected and is getting an entire new arc in Super in addition to his movie.
Buu not only split into a good form, but his evil part was reincarnated, and EoZ showed Goku passing the torch to him(we'll see how that ends in Super, that damn torch never stays passed).

Cell needs some love. Hell, I'd even take the current time-line's Cell that was allegedly destroyed in Gero's lab. Imagine if the supercomputer continued gathering DNA throughout the rest of the series and part of Super.

Baby was one of the only good things about GT. He might be too good for the new stuff, though.

He's probably referring to the Bardock special. Zarbon was the one who first recommended destroying Planet Vegeta because the saiyans were rapidly growing in strength.

Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.

Cell with the cells of Boo, Beerus and Whis and maybe even Dabra? What a fucking monster he'd be. This needs to happen.

Baby and the Shadow Dragons. One of my universal faults with Dragon Ball is that the characters horrendous decision making always causes so much trouble and usually death that could've been avoided if they just stopped to think for a second but they never really get punished for it in any meaningful way. Having a villain show up who's a byproduct of the Saiyan rampages and another whole group of villains who are a byproduct of the heroes patchwork jobs with the DBs would be great to see at least thematically carry over into Super.

No chance in frozen hell of that happening with Toriyama so involved in this though.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

Majoob and The Shadow Dragons.

Awesome concepts totally wasted in GT.

I would just keep SSJ4 design. Different name (since it's Oozaru progression line anyway) and perhaps different transformation requirements rather inconsequential how a brown Ozaru that calms down = calm brown Oozaru yet a Golden Oozaru that calms down = SSJ4??? Not to mention the ability to cheat-out. But it was a great design that fit the lore perfectly. Million times better than SSJG and SSSDJFHFSUFKSFSS

always like the whole General Rildo, Super powerful space empire building robots trying to control the universe. and Baby/Bebi thing was cool I liked the idea of the tuffles coming back from the grave to exact revenge against the living saiyans.

No one. I really don't want to see anyone from GT in Super, the style of the show is too different, and it will create a mess out of already chaotic continuity, or whatever it is now. If they want to make spin-off, continuation or etc of GT, then fine. But let Super being its own thing.

None of the villains particularly appeal to me (virtually nothing appeals to me in GT, but oh well), but if I had to pick one I'd go with Super 17, simply because it would be nice to have #17 be "used" again; he was first introduced as a major villain along with #18, and after the Jinzouningen and Cell arcs she stuck with the gang throughout the Majin Buu arc and the events that took place after that. I'd like to see the same done with #17. The problem would be to generate a way in which ANOTHER #17 would be created, or how Super 17 would be created at all in some other way.

From the good guys, Gogeta. Not in his Super Saiya-jin 4 form, obviously, as the very concept of Super Saiya-jin 4 generates all sorts of plot-holes and inconsistencies with the Super Saiya-jin God and Super Saiya-jin God Super Saiya-jin stages - the only thing I like about SSJ4 is how it looks, apart from it it's an entire can of worms from all possible angles. Achieving Gogeta would bring back the fusion technique to DBSuper, although I prefer his counterpart Vegitto, with the Potara method of fusion.

These are just exercises of wishful thinking, none of this has any chance of becoming true in DBSuper, of course, but it's a nice and interesting thing to debate.

I actually like most of the concepts and characters in GT. But they're so specific to it I think it might feel jarring to see them lifted wholesale.

I want to throw in my support for the mischief-causing "good-guy" Cell mentioned above though. That's one I've considered a few times. Like Vegeta, his only real goal is to prove he's the best. Unlike the main cast, he's completely amoral/evil. But if he were kept in-check power-wise, that'd actually be a hilarious dynamic.
