Who do you think deserved to claim a villain?

Post by TJVY » Wed Feb 25, 2015 10:26 pm

Whilst re-watching DBZ and DBGT, I began to think that there were some missed opportunities for the other characters by having Goku be the one to typically finish off the villains, even if he is the main protagonist. It's pretty clear that the franchise became less focused on side characters after the Cell Games which was a bit of a shame because the other characters were great too, my question is which characters do you think deserved to claim a villain's defeat?

My pick would have to be 18, I would have liked to have seen her finish Super 17 after killing Krillin. I thought she showed some great character development in that saga and to have given her more focus so that she could defeated him would have been quite poetic IMO. For those who say it's not possible because he's way above her in terms of strength, I do know this but it was clear he was vulnerable when pitted against her so it could have worked.

Let me know your thoughts. :D

Vegeta killing Freeza is something that is way overdue. FnF will hopefully give Vegeta his big moment, God knows he really needs it.

I have no problem with who got to beat who in the manga and BOG but the other movies and Gt could have done so much more but for some reason didn't.

Toriyama could have let Yamcha beat someone throughout the story.

Yamcha, easily. Dude never won a major battle for real.

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.

I second Yamcha. Poor fella :(

But man, Vegeta... he is long overdue for his moment. I really hope he gets it in FnF.

Usually I'm not one for saying side characters should have a claim on villains because I think most of the time there's not much sense in it, but Yamcha and the mummy. I probably mock Yamcha more than anyone else, and I can't joke about that fight. It's so fucking pointless for him to lose, Goku's casual behaviour is like rubbing salt in Yamcha's wounds, and he honestly comes off like he's deliberately trying to make Yamcha look shit. That sequence makes me sick.

Other characters who should final blow a baddie(FnF Spoiler)

Post by djkalteraphine » Tue Mar 31, 2015 11:00 pm

One of the hot topics of discussion for Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F is that Vegeta should have gotten the final blow against Freeza, instead of just giving it to Goku again. Fans are rightly tired of Goku hogging all the spotlight, so I've taken the time to write up a list of other great characters who should get the opportunity to kill a main DBZ baddie.

Image
Kuririn has gotten the shaft too many times. He’s been there since episode 14 of Dragon Ball, has fought every single one of Goku’s rivals (Ten is off screen, but we can assume he has anyway) and main villains, and always managed to hold his own no matter how outclassed he was. Plus, the Kienzan is the greatest technique in the franchise that is severely under used.

Image
Boring a hole into Raditz chest doesn’t really count, since he had Goku’s help and Raditz was just a mook to foreshadow the real threat of Nappa and Vegeta (who were in turns mooks to foreshadow the realer threat of Freeza). Consummate comer-upper of attack names that have something to do with Devil, Demon, Evil, Bad in the name, yet most often associated with children, Piccolo is the kind of Vin Diesel in The Pacifier personality we NEED.

Image
How has #18 never got her day in the sun? It seems like after she broke Vegeta’s arm, she just fell off the face off the planet. No wonder Toriyama revealed her human name to be Amelia, because like Earhart, this one crashes and burns as soon as she gets off the ground.

Image
Chichi. She’s the daughter of the legendary Gyumao demon, and yet she never sends a baddie to their death and eventual decay? She even learned how to Kaioken x10 without so much as dying or training under 100x gravity. Who needs that shit when you have mom power?

Image
Umigame is the third good guy to be introduced to us, way back in episode 2 of Dragon Ball. Yet he’s never so much as thrown a punch at a main bad guy in Dragon Ball Z! What kind of shit is that?! And even with the death of his original seiyuu, Daisuke Gori, no important side stories have been written for this classic member of team DB. gg Toriyama

Image
Bulma’s supple and juicy butt. It’s had plenty of screentime - at least twice as much as Yamcha and six times more than Chaozu - yet it has never beaten a single main villain? Whether you prefer your Bulma butt exposed to bribe an old man out of his ball, or wrapped up in a sexy red thing, Bulma’s butt is something you know and love. Isn’t it time for Toriyama to stop playing favorites and give Bulma’s butt the win it deserves????

Image
Arale is the most powerful person on earth. Yet when Cell challenges earth to the Budokai, she doesn’t even show. Why? What is Toei trying to keep us from seeing??

Image
Ginyu, although not as good guy when we leave him, has spent years living on peaceful earth with frogs who see him as an alien.This frog bullying surely turns Ginyu into a new man, with a heart pure as toilet water, that should surely land the killing blow on Freeza’s 8th form. (Which is really just forms 1 - 7 stacked on top of each other.)

Image
The poison inside Goku. We keep HEARING ABOUT IT, but we've yet to SEE IT KILL A SINGLE BAD GUY. I mean, jeez, we met Goku in the first episode, yet this poison hasn't been seen once! Is Toeiyama trying to tell us it isn't even there? What a crock of shit.

I'm happy to say that he did.

Goku&Vegeta got to shine big time in the last 2 movies so for the 3rd one I won't mind if Toriyama sends them off somewhere and puts the lights on Piccolo&Gohan.

Soppa Saiyjins from Dorgou Ballru Zetto is my favorite transformation everah, especially when Trounksoru did it in front of Seru and when Bejita did it when he faced Jingonigen-hachigo. But for real, I use the FUNi pronunciation. - Soppa Saia People

This.

As much as the Vegeta fanboys are being annoying right now, I still wish Vegeta'd been the one. Another one would be Tien.

Tenshinhan already had his moment against Tao. No need to have him be in the spotlight again, his character development is finished.

I was hoping that Freeza's army would bring some Saibamen with them so that Yamcha could finally have his revenge. It might be hard for the half-Saiyans to finish off a major villain unless they're also SSJ Gods or Goku and Vegeta are out of the picture for some reason.

Toriyama should do it lie Oda: Give each protagonist an antagonist above their level(from slightly above, to game breaker) to overcome. No more Saiyans butting in on fights, or all opponents at a level only a Saiyan can defeat.
