I hate seeing TFS quotes on every Dragon Ball video. (Crunchyroll, YouTube, etc.)

19 years ago I was rushing home from school to watch DBZ on Cartoon Network, and today I've rushed home from work to watch DBS on Pop. I guess it's true the more things change the more they stay the same. :lol:

I absolutely hate the "Piccolo is Gohan's real dad" meme. And honestly, Chi-Chi is actually a good mother even if she's overzealous.

I know. Everyone is just too focused on the Cell arc narratives to focus on the real deal of things.

Well, to be honest... I hate most Dragon Ball memes. But the "Yamcha sucks" and "Piccolo is Gohan's real dad" memes are the worst for me.

Yes, and the Yamcha sucks meme has even made it into Super's English localization where Vegeta sarcastically says "Oh yeah let's go see Yamcha". Really dumb and out of character. TFS has magnified a lot of memes that had little to no basis in the first place and has made them commonplace among fans and it's really annoying.

I guess they do it because they know that it sells now. I wish a lot of these could be less meta. I wonder what they'll do when they get to dubbing the baseball episode. It scares me. :?

-"DBZ Super" / "DBZ GT"
-"Captain Ginyu saga"
-"Smart and responsible Gohan sucks"
-"Stupid and arrogant Gohan is the best"
-"ChiChi is bad mother and she ruined Gohan"
-Bashing GT for non-existing issues or things that happened in other series as well (like Vegeta cheating or getting help in DBZ/DBS many times)
-Saying only the 3 last shadow dragons were good despite being one of the worst (except Nuova)
-Thinking Goku in GT got weaker
-Thinking Baby Gohan and Infected Gohan are the same thing (very often used as a "proof" that Goku was far superior to Vegeta because he beat Infected Gohan while Vegeta was struggling with Baby Gohan)
-Thinking Goku SSJ4 is weaker than DBZ Vegito because Perfect Files said it despite not saying it at all
-Saying DBS anime is canon despite having tons of fillers from Z
-Thinking Uub, Bra and Pan are from GT
-Thinking EoZ is GT
-Repeating non-existing statements about power levels, series, canon or spoilers (Akira said SSJ4 is weaker than god / there will be new series DBX / DBZ creator said DBS is canon / Gogeta Blue will appear in new movie made by DBZ creator so it will be cannon)
-Using english dub as actual source of anything
-Thinking DB started with Raditz
-Thinking Broly could beat anyone beyond SSJ2
-Thinking Bardock traveled to the past
-Being amazed at shenron being scared of Beerus despite dragon being weaker than Chiaotzu
-Thinking Ultra Instinct is super saiyan form
-Thinking Goku in DBS can destroy universe

    People can post comments on Crunchyroll? Didn't know that, I just watch the videos and move on.

    But yeah, those TFS quotes are getting as bad as Over 9000 (never understood why it's funny).

    Yeah.. I don't really get into that stuff. Toriyama and TOEI write how the characters are supposed to act so a bit silly to say "he should be like this" or "he should be like that".

    I do find live-action shows more believable for this type of conversation so I guess I'm downplaying it for being an animated series.

    I don’t see what it being a cartoon has to do with it.

    Being animated kind of makes discussions about characters a bit redundant to me as they were already developed whereas, live-action series feel more believable thanks to being represented by actual real-life actors and actresses. It's just a nitpick I have.

    I hate when people try to synch up GT with Super. Nobody is trying to ruin your enjoyment with GT, but just accept that it can't fit in with Super

    People who put Bruce Faulconer music edits in Super and Kai scenes on YouTube. Don't be plaguing modern Dragon Ball with 90's dub mistakes lol

    What does Christmas have to do with fan quotes? It makes no sense.
