Who do you like the most - Goku, Vegeta, or Gohan?

Post by thatdbzguy » Tue Nov 12, 2013 9:21 am

Out of the three more major characters of DBZ, which do you prefer the most?

My personal favorite is Goku. I love his overall attitude and personality.

Vegeta.
Vegeta: "Funny... I seem to recall Kakarot being fed the same information right before he transformed; the distinct look on your faces when he went Super Saiyan didn't exactly inspire confidence. One does not predict or calculate power like ours."

Gohan, for being most normal character
I also really liked Vegeta, yes, he was jerk, but, he was really proud, he would never beg for mercy.
Goku become more and more jerk as series progres, so he is my least favorite character.

Goku (great character for a series)
Vegeta (great character for a series)





Gohan (decent filler for a series with a failed transition to main protagonist story line...which was thankfully abandoned)

This. I do have a kind of love hate relationship with Goku, so sometimes I actually like him, but I'll put him last in this list.

Gohan was meh but I think he's a likable character.

Vegeta is definitely one of my favourite characters! I like his character development and I just have a thing for evil characters going "good".

I'm curious, what's with the dislike for Gohan? I actually really like him, just not as much as Goku or Vegeta.

Gohan first, since he is the only one not driven by his own ulterior moves.
He is honest in his decisions and efforts.

Goku does pretty much anything that would lead him into a good fight. He even risks lives just because of this.
Vegeta does everything for his own good and his own pride.
Are they more interesting as characters? Yes they are.
But I don't like them because of that they are selfish and self-centered.

Yep.

I can't stand Gohan. Every iteration of him is awful, barring ONE example (first going SSJ2, and he even screws that up almost immediately after beating the Cell Js!). He's never interesting, or funny. He is just there, shoved into the spotlight, and fails to deliver as a good character.

Gohan and Goku are tied when Goku isn't a selfish asshole. Vegeta is up there when he's his Boo arc self and forwards, otherwise I don't care for him.

Gohan (10/17) and Goku (normal)

Goku (selfish)

Vegeta (Boo arc and onwards)

Kid Gohan (Saiyan Saga)

(Everyone else)

Vegeta (Saiyan arc-Cell)

Goku, easily. Despite his selfishness and stupidity (or maybe because of the latter), I find him much more charming and enjoyable than the other two.

Gohan, I honestly don't care for until we get to the Boo material. From his first appearance, I was actually cheering for Piccolo when he threw him through mountains and booted him down cliffs, anything to shut him up for a while. Then he doesn't really get interesting to me until the Cell Games, and that kind of comes out of nowhere...so it's really the Saiyaman stuff that sells me on him. Then again, I'm amused by Saiyaman more than most I think.

Vegeta falls either somewhere in the middle or at the bottom, depending on my mood and what part of the material we're talking about. I just want to smack the guy for his stupid decisions half the time. I find I enjoy Vegeta most when he's incredibly uncomfortable and hilarity ensues.

Absolutely. Goku, especially at the end of the series, becomes more and more dislikable.

Honestly Gohan's my favorite. I identified with him for some reason.

Vegeta can be cool sometimes but he's a strange asshole.

Future Trunks...
...but since this topic isn't about who your favorite character is, out of those 3, i'm going to say Goku.
Gohan is a close second, and finally, Vegeta.

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.
It was actually Beerus disguised as Zarbon #StayWoke
Herms wrote:The fact that the ridiculous power inflation is presented so earnestly makes me just roll my eyes and snicker. Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.
