I mean outside of 17 nobody used some new techniques and considering that both Goku and Krillin ended up using the Kienzan,it lost its luster just like Piccolo using the Hellzone Grenade in the same episode with 2 other peopleTheDipDap1234 wrote:
It would have been nice to see 18 use some new techniques, or maybe even the kienzan again. Also saying she got better treatment than almost half of the team is questionable. The only ones who were treated worse than her were Krillin, Tien and Piccolo in my opinion.
While Roshi got the better character episodes,18's exit was as good as him and the opponents she took out were stronger than the one Roshi took out.
I also said almost half of the team.4/10 is almost half
Piccolo's biggest fight were the U6 Namekians and while they were stronger than Ribrianne,Piccolo got pushed aside and was regulated to support for Gohan(not to mention while 18 was beating up random fodders in the first episodes Piccolo was losing arms).Michsi wrote:
Tien, maybe. Krillin and Piccolo? I don't know about that. Her exit was treated better than theirs, but the rest is debatable. She was nearly the first one out before Krillin saved her, for a while it seemed like #17 was constantly looking out for her, and was then saved again by Piccolo. Everyone needed rescuing once or twice,but it feels like she needed it a little more than the others. Her greatest accomplishment was her fight with Ribrianne, but looking back, aside from her colorful presence, I have a hard time considering Ribrianne a formidable opponent.
Not to mention my biggest pet peeve, her occasional moodiness that cropped up from time to time. Like in Vegeta's case, it was as if the writers couldn't settle on a temper.
