Dragonball references poping up every now and then

Post by Ringworm128 » Sun Oct 02, 2011 8:22 am

Have you ever been watching or doing something and something that's a reference to DB or just something that reminds you of DB comes up. I was just watching this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1JCa67F1RU and at 4:23 A list comes up if you look at it one of the names is Tao Paipai.
If you have to write a small thesis every time you respond to a post you're not an intellectual, you're just bad at making your point.

Well one time in my algebra class, my teacher was doing an inequality on the board. The answer came out to be something like 47x>9000. I was all like "IT"S OVER NINE THOUSSANNDD!!!!!"

Only one person in the class got it, though. :(

Might be a slightly old topic; but, was watching MadTV on CN and a parody of DBZ called Money Ball Z was on it and it was Goku and co. playing baseball. Wasn't the funniest DB parody I've ever seen. But, it's nice to see show on TV referencing it.

I've heard a few DBZ references in rap songs. Especially from the Wu-Tang Clan and Lupe Fiasco.
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

This scene reminded me of Dragonball when I saw it.

I remember in the Duck Dodgers cartoon, Porky Pig said something like "I guess they're all home watching repeats of Dragon Ball Z". That was the best reference ever.

I still love the Christmas episode of DBZ that Robot Chicken did :lol: . I also remember that they talk about DBZ and made fun of it in Mystery Science Theater 3000 Summer Blockbuster Review back in 1998.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon for the Nintendo 64 had a nod to Super Saiyan hair.
Super Sonic, first seen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, is a pretty obvious nod to Super Saiyans.

And... well, there was Soulja Boy. I think most of you remember that.
I can see their parachutes.

I saw the SNL/Funhouse parody for the first time at Anime USA during Mike's "10 Things You Didn't Know About Dragon Ball" panel:

I can probably guarantee that other people got it, but would never had said it.
