It wouldn't have been funny if Uub was visibly in pain, but the fact that his reaction is one of "Oh, are you SERIOUS?", I find it pretty amusing.

After all, it's merely a flesh wound.

Yup, that's what makes it funny for me as well. After all, the characters take punishment, of a force which would make a simple human kick the bucket in a flash, like it is nothing. Although it is inconsistent at times.
As an example, if Recoome's kick broke all the bones in Kuririn's body, in real life, he would die in mere minutes from internal bleeding as the sharp fragments of the bones would puncture his internal organs and vessels, yet he manages to speak!

So Uub losing an arm? Funny, because of his reaction. 18 breaking Vegeta's arm? Kind of tragic, yes, but is it a bit funny? Could be if you find Vegeta deserving of that. Cell stabbing Piccolo in the arm to suck out his ki juices? Kinda funny because of the face Piccolo makes.
Are my interpretations true to everyone? No, since humor is individual.

Violence can be cruelly funny, even in real life. I once saw a kid fall off a trampoline, and at that time I knew I shouldn't laugh but it looked so damn funny. The kid was fine, thankfully.

And i thought Other World Tournament arc was full of bullshit :roll: I don`t like this humor at all, and Eleim really should be disqualified. on 5th panel, is that suppose to be Black Knight from Monty Python Holy Grail?

Yep, definitely the Black Knight.

If he doesn't get disqualified next round, I'm calling BS. He just killed like four people. Also, this fight is awful.

Also: "cut the crap". Was the pun intentional?

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.

The armor thing is kinda funny, although I'm not sure why Bra is trying to rip her clothes off.

Black Knight cameo is nice.

Because they're weighted.

Wow I make the reference and then they literally put the Black Knight into the next page.

Also what the hell is with the last panel. They should be serious as PEOPLE ARE DYING. I guess U16 Goten and Piccolo just don't give a shit. This isn't funny. This is not dragon ball humour at all.

Wait a minute :o ...I think I know how Vegetto might turn evil (if indeed he does at all)! What if Bra actually does get killed by Eleim's attack? Considering how angry Vegetto has been getting lately over various things, THAT certainly might be something that'll push him over the edge! He kills Eleim in a fit of rage, the judges do something to make it so that he may not be able to revive Bra, then he goes on a rampage, and possibly even gets Majin Buu to revive Bra in exchange for something (since she's still alive when we see glimpses of the future), etc, etc...

What do you guys think?

Bra was alive (and calling her dad a dick head for missing her match) when Vegetto exited the dimension.

Yeah, even I can admit the line has been crossed, Eleim's cutting is no longer funny.

Can't Bra just, I don't know, take off her top like a normal person instead of trying to rip if off?

But Bra's barely dodging the instant death beams as it is. You wanna try taking off a shirt instead of ripping it when someone is firing the equivalent of nuclear missiles at you?

Then burn it off with ki.

It really can't be too hard to remove, Freeza was able to bust his armour off laughably easy. Being stretchy doesn't make it invincible.

Of course Bra should simply have the strength to tear it despite being stretchy but whatever.
