Most useless character ever!

Post by DBZAOTA482 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 6:54 pm

Although it'd be a bit of an odd opinion but I think Uub is the most useless character in the history of Dragon Ball. All he did was get a power boost which only resulted in him quickly getting his ass handed to him by Bebi during their little light show. No one cared about what happened to him.

Goku neglected his friends and family for 5 years just to train that village runt but he amounts to nothing. Uub makes Yamcha look respectable and that's saying something.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

Goten and Kid trunks, although memorable, are useless overall.

Well, he did rig the match-ups in the prelims of the 23rd Budoukai, without which there's a possibility that the finals could have been really boring! Maybe...

(It's just too bad he didn't notice he was pairing himself against Tao Pai Pai)

Uub's worthlessness is not the fault of the intended canon. It's GT's fault.

Everyone knows that Gyuumao is the most useless.
Kentai wrote:Son Gokuu is a fascinating character anyway, because he is - at face value, anyway - an idiot savant. The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

How can you ignore the fact that if he wasn't swallowed by Baby, Goku & co would be dead, which would give the result of him succeeding his goal?
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

Chaoz is useful. Without him, Tien probably wouldn't have had a permanent training partner. Tien was pretty damn useful.

But he keeps Chichi from getting herself in situations that can get her killed... or from killing Goku whenever she loses her temper.

Yamcha, he do's nothing in Z but get killed by a saibaman. He makes krillin look like the strongest hero ever a live.

Ikr he's so ungrateful. Goku punched Nappa in honor of him and Chaozu refuses to morally support Goku during the Cell Games? Even Vegeta showed up.

I'm official Chaozu hater! I really can't stand this whiny suicider-for-nothing creepy gay wraith!!!
Tenshinhan being genderless like Piccolo will make me sleep comfortably.
Imagine for example, getting to house with this megaton-beauty chic you met at bar and as you unlock the door
then there is.......
CHAOZUUUUUU!!!! Chinese alien-hybrid good-for-nothing gay ninja!!!
Hell, chic is away and this "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named-Again" squeeks with tears in his eyes: ''Ten-san!''
Being Tenshinhan, I will let myself be eaten alive by my third eye!

Goku's not his type, he was home violently mas#$%@&*ing on Tenshinhan's clothes.
What was Mr. Toriyama thinking writing this character.
