Anyone disappointed we didn't get to see someone disqualified for accidentally killing an opponent?

Post by precita » Sun Dec 17, 2017 5:02 pm

One of the interesting rules at the start of the TOP is if you kill your opponent, you get disqualified. However we're now nearly at the end of the tournament and that's never happened. I think it would have been interesting to see a character get real excited over beating someone, but then find out they accidentally killed them, and would immediately get disqualified.

Now that we're at the end the last chance they have to do something like that is with Freeza against either Toppo or Dyspo I suppose. Would be funny if the reason Freeza is disqualified isn't because he loses, but he accidentally kills one of them. The look on Freeza's face as Zeno transports him out of the ring into the stands would be priceless. :lol:

I hope Freeza wins the whole thing, so naturally I don't want to see him being a victim of this rule. Not to mention the "suddenly eliminated" moment already happened with Frost, albeit not through killing someone.

That's a rule in all DB canon tournaments and it never happened. It would be cool to happen in ToP but now it's too late.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

This reminds me one funny thing: when everyone, including myself, thought Krillin was gonna kill Jium the bird with his kienzan. :D

One of the fighters could have tried to deliberately lower his defenses and sacrifice his life to eliminate one strong fighter for the sake of the team. That would have been a cool idea and I'm disappointed nobody tried it out.

I actually expected Hit to try to kill Jiren, "sacrificing" himself for the sake of his team (only to fail miserably and be eliminated the normal way). But I suppose I was asking too much.
Be warned: my opinions are usually shit and I write on mobile. Deadly combination.

You read my mind. I've been thinking how smart of a tactic that would be to get rid of Jiren. Maybe someone like Gohan could do it for his family.

I still think it would have been a great moment to see Krillin get eliminated like this to protect 18. Better than the elimination he got anyway.

Freeza mocked this idea in 108 by saying he wouldn't never be that careless and Freeza is an expert at keeping his victims alive and in great pain. Heck, that was part of his training with Togama.

The idea of someone would be so careless strikes me a dumb. Most of these fighters are professional, so they would know how to fight without killing.

I always found it dumb since Krillin has been in several tournament and knows how to fight at his best without killing someone.

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.

Very true. I could only see him doing it if 18 was in danger of getting seriously injured. Krillin is one of the most skilled fighters in the show. He knows his limits.

What if Goku accidently kills Jiren :lol: and is eliminated even though he's technically the last standing giving Jiren the win.

Personally I think once that fight begins Goku will request Zeno lift the no killing rule so he could go all out much like he did during the Universe 6 tournament only this time, Zeno would be more willing to do so unlike Beerus and Champa, but that is a good question. Maybe the rule is overlooked just that once and no one gets disqualified, Universe 11 is erased, and Goku gets to wish For his own muffin button.

Not all universes have Dragon Balls. While a few noble fighters may have thought of that, I don't see - hey, wasn't that orc guy willing to disqualify himself in order to ring out Goku? Well, it's not exactly life sacrifice, but it's as close as it got in the ToP. :S

Indeed. If they're going to be erased anyways why not take out a powerful foe at least? That would be amazing to see Dr Rota sacrifice himself to Jiren to eliminate Jiren lmao

The only one i would have wanted to see killing someone would have been Hit, and this would have only worked if Jiren died. But yeah, it could've been interesting.
I really miss ma boy, Black :( :cry:

I'm disappointed killing isn't allowed period. That's the dumbest pg-13 crap about the tournament of power.

I'm still holding out hope that freeze death beams someone to death.

The rule exists so stronger fighters have to restrain themselves instead of killing "weaklings" right on the spot, giving those a chance to win using "tactics". The best example would be Roshi having a shot against Frost ( Alas, Mafuba never works when you really need it). I doubt they ever considered having a real kill in the tournament.

That's been the case in all the previous tournament of the franchise...

Wow, I thought the same! But such tactic would only make sense coming from a member of U7, and most of them are way stronger than most of the contestants. Think of all the salt we'll have to cope with if someone like Vegeta was eliminated because some fodder used that trick on him..I can see why Toei didn't take that route. It could have been fun, thou.
