But there's nothing they can do for Yamcha. The official source material is treating him like shit.The Desert Bandit wrote:I'm sorry if my previous posts came off as "Hurr durr! Yamcha's my favorite character, therefore he can't be made fun of! Durr!" I sometimes have trouble expressing myself properly, which sometimes leads to misunderstandings.
DBZfan7 is basically stating my exact thoughts. I admit, I laughed at first when Yamcha was made fun off. I laughed when Vegeta compared Yamcha to Raditz and when Super Kami Guru called him disappointing, among other jokes that mocked him. However, come the end of the Freeza Saga, the jokes felt a bit excessive. Literally, every joke that had to do with Yamcha was mocking him.
Sure, Krillin was also mocked numerous times in TFS Abridged. However, Krillin also makes witty jokes or does/says other things silly or hilarious. With Yamcha, EVERY joke Namek Saga forward, was a joke mocking him. Even in the Freeza Saga where Krillin was most made fun of, a lot jokes involving him were wisecracks or him simply being hilarious without being mocked. If you look at every joke that made fun of Krillin, there were gaps in between each of them where Krillin would make clever jokes or do/say anything else considered funny. That isn't the case with Yamcha.
There is nothing wrong with TFS mocking Yamcha, but if they keep doing it so many times in a row with no bones being thrown or no other kinds of humor being squeezed out from him, it kinda comes off as hate and ends up being excessive. I'd feel concerned and bad for Krillin if he was only mocked with no other jokes coming from him or bones being thrown his way. And I'm pretty confident all the Krillin fans out there would feel the same if they saw him ONLY being bashed whenever he's even mentioned.
-Trains against Saiyans, gets killed instantly by Saibaman
- Does nothing. (Filler Ginyu fight doesn't count, nor his training with Kaio, since they don't learn anything and it never comes into play)
- Gets wrecked by Gero instantly.
- Brings Goku back home.
- Does nothing else. (His contribution against Cell's beam struggle was filler)
- Does nothing except die. (Scenes in the Afterlife were filler)
I get your point, trust me. But to do what you want, they would have to make shit up. There's no way they can throw a bone to Yamcha.
