What is your opinion about SSJ5 Goku?

Post by fadeddreams5 » Thu Jul 09, 2015 10:00 pm

As in, his design:
Forget this monstrosity is Goku. What do you think of it as a standalone design?

As a transformation for Goku, I personally think it's awful since a) it looks nothing like him and b) it looks pure evil. However, as a standalone design, I'd take this over LSSJ3/4 Broly anyday. Seriously, if Broly or the legendary/original/progenitor SSJ (who's evilll) is ever brought into the canon, I think it'd be neat to have his SSJ form platinum over gold, and this SSJ5 design to be his equivalent to SSJ3.

It's not even SS5 Goku. It was determined a while back that it was an original fan character named Tablos.

Regardless of who or what it is though, the design is horrible to me. The stupid antenna bangs are ridiculous and the color scheme, specifically the white shades for hair/fur and red skin, makes him look like a yeti. The clothes are "meh" too, but clothes can be changed.

I think it's an over-designed mess and uses a terribly-looking color for the fur and hair. Definitely would not like to see anything similar (or anything even remotely resembling SS4, really) to that in any new official material.

Woah, seriously? A fan character led to the massive AF confusion back in the day? lol.

As a standalone design it actually looks pretty good. A tad bit over-the-top, though.

I actually like it better than SSJ4. But less than SSJ3.

I thought it was pretty badass back in the 90s or whenever that came about. I knew it was fanart, but I still liked it.

Nowadays, I find it to be a bit too hardcore for my palette. I dig designs like Track Suit Gohan more than I do Super Saiyan 5 Tablos.

What the Hell is Tablos a pun on anyway? I'm trying to think of different vegetables and I'm just coming up with nonsense.

It's over the top and very eye-catching. I like it.

Here's a better resolution version of it. And Toyble's cleaned up version also looks nice with the added pupils. Young Jijii's also looks rad.

It's way too ugly. It looks like ugly fan fiction, and that's what it is in my opinion.

-A bit tacky, yet flavorless..

-Exceptionally (or unnecessarily) intricate, yet kind of on the bland side. Perhaps, less is more?

It does, however, have an interesting selection of colors.

Nah, SSJ4 is waaay better than that, I will say that I like it more than Bluper Saiyan but that's about it.

I find the design ugly. The colours are boring and the clothing is weird.

Maybe it's just supposed to be a pun on the last part of Vegetable, like Tarble.

Non-canon fan art, nothing more. It's way over the top, and well apparently not even ssj5!

I'd prefer ssj4, ssjg, and ssjgssj way more.

I think I said it in another topic, but I really love Toyotaro's SSJ 5 designs for Goku, Broly, Vegeta and Zaiko/Xicor. It has a more god-like appearance than the SSJGOD Base form.

It looks ugly, even by fan character standards, there's just way too much going on.

The mentioned design?

Fugly by every standard of the word.

Concept? I have no issues with SSJ5. There are plenty of designs of the form that work.

I actually think it's alright... I mean it's a bit too crazy for my tastes (basically a SS4 on steroids), but if Toei were to have made a movie with this guy as the main antagonist back in the late 90's and early 2000's in some Dragon Ball Z/GT movie, I think it could definitely work. He looks like some sort of ancient, evil Saiyan god or something.

And, as always, of course it was necessary to say that.

My opinion:

The form is too much. And I hate the bangs.

My SSJ5 has long golden hair (similiar to SSJ4 style but longer), no fur but a golden tail. No eyeliner but pupils.
