Why do you hate Piccolo so damned much? Why must he continue to be wasted in whatever continuity he's in? Goddammit man, he doesn't need to by a hype tool for Gohan all of the time.

As long as he doesn't get knocked out, it doesn't matter.

Every time I'm told to let it play out and see how it goes, it always goes badly for Piccolo.

He's fighting himself from a parallel universe. There's no way to come out of that looking good. But at the same time, it also doesn't look bad.

We need to wait and see before we give a verdict about it.

Maybe it'll play out differently this time.

Maybe Gohan will also gets his ass-handed to him and they can be father and son together. :lol:

In all seriousness though, I expect Piccolo's performance to at least be decent, though I'm not expecting too much.

Dimps actually care for him. He got to be the one who eliminated Botamo and put up a good fight against Cabba in Xenoverse 2's Universe 6 saga. :D Gotta love how we got the point of games being superior than the main series.

Let's see what's in store for Piccolo in Toei's version of Universe Survival saga.

Meanwhile in the main continuity he gets laughed at by Goku, mocked by Frost and told to GTFO by Vegeta. This is coming off him DYING in the previous arc.

Thanks TOEI.

Should... Should Piccolo not get hit a single time being the complaint I'm seeing here? These are fights, they're not going to be one-sided and both Gohan and Piccolo will receive some pain; it's not that big a deal.

That's interesting. Didn't know they did that. Is there any more changes?

Yes. Since the tournament got messy, Beerus and Champa decide to do a battle royale (and is indeed a battle royale, not this false advertisement they did for Universe Survival saga, which doesn't feel like a battle royale at all), even those who already got defeated, returned to battle (with a power-up similar to Towa's) and fight against Universe 7's Time Patroller and Goku, the remaining ones at this point.

There are more changes but it's better for you to play this awesome game and experience it, or see Youtube videos.

I saw the DLC video, it was very meh. The battle royal was just a 2-v-2 and an excused made since they didn't have Magetta or Botamo in the actual game along with Monaka.

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.

I REALLY hope this moment isn't a Saiyan saga reference, where he sacrifices himself to block an attack for Gohan. That's the vibe I got from seeing this clip, and if THAT'S how they do my man Piccolo, I'll certainly be disappointed.

However, we should probably wait a week to see what happens. No point in getting all heated now when it could just be clever editing to make him look like he's in trouble.

Piccolo gets to take center stage in an episode overseen by the series' best regular animation supervisor and episode director. That's better than you can say about Kuririn, who got fucked over for his role in this tournament.

The last shot of Piccolo bears a significant resemblance to him saving Gohan from Nappa's attack, hence people are upset that it appears Piccolo might be sacrificing himself to save Gohan for like the 8th time.
