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'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

Yamucha. He was such a nice guy, but sometimes he was too nice for his own good. I don't believe he ever cheated on Bulma, but I doubt he shot down her accusations since he's so subservient.

More beta male-ness:

His laughing expressions don't do him much favors either :lol:

Yamcha. Even Toriyama thinks he's a loser.

The better question would be if Dragon Ball actually has any alphas, whatever AOTA482 means by that. Half the cast are hermits or near hermits, not exactly social or familial powerhouses, the other half are not aggressive people, which is an instant no-go in some peoples eyes, and Vegeta has been slapped on every segment of the spectrum! :lol:

I can't tell if the discussion implying betas are bad or not 'real men' or not.

Man-Wolf, because he's actually part wolf, and wolves actually have alpha and beta males, unlike humans, despite what certain internet commenters might like to think.
