DB Character Lookalikes

Post by cheddarsword » Thu May 04, 2017 1:42 am

I've been noticing how some characters in other media and even people in reality resemble characters from the Dragon Ball universe.

Take Android 18 for instance. Supposedly Blue Mary from Fatal Fury and The King of FIghters was inspired by her and even Tina Armstrong from the Dead or Alive series bears a strong resemblance.

I thought it would be interesting to see who else out there resembles Dragon Ball characters, so I thought I'd start this thread up and see how far it goes.

But I think it's worth posting a few rules.

1: No fan art. Only official art can be used. Fans tend to alter images to their liking, which is fine but we're going for official looks here. This also applies to the DB character you're referencing.

2: Images used must be safe. No porn. It's not to say that they can't be "entertaining" but that's not the purpose of this thread.

3: Less a rule and more a note. You do NOT have to post an image of the DB character you're referencing but it helps. Especially if one form or variation of them looks more like the person/character you're saying looks like them. For instance, "looks like android 17" is fine but 17 from the Cell saga looks somewhat different from the 17 we see in super. Not to mention there's Myuu's 17 and Super 17.

Other than that, have fun!

Besides blond hair, and some similarities all of the gals present here are dangerously different to one and another. Heck, they even have incredibly different art styles from one and another! But I do concede that is a rather unfair comparison to make, as all art styles are different from one other.

Also, while I do admit Blue Mary at the very least has some similarities to Android 18, (she has the same stature, bust size, even some of the same colors) because as you mentioned she was visually based off of the android. Tina on the other hand doesn't really have anything in common. Besides being blond of course.

Besides blond hair & somewhat similar physical proportion, I dont think Mary Blue / Tina are lookalikes of 18.
She's....one of a kind :evil:

I frankly cannot find any lookalike DB characters frm 15 anime I've watched, though I might say Gon frm HXH2011 looks dangerously "lookalike" to Goku/Goten at some points

Misuta Popo lookalike anyone? :D 30 years & still searching. Hail Toriyama!!!

Oh good grief the modern Tina Armstrong (DOA5 i'm guessing?) looks so bad to me. She looks way less like Android 18 now and her boobs.. did she have a major reduction since DOA Dementions or something?

Every good cosplayer that nails the visual appearence of a character can lookalike their animated counterpart.

Youd have a easier time doing lookalikes from other series that Toriyama has done designs for like Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, Blue Dragon, and Tobal.

Maybe rename this "characters from other series with the same colour hair as DB characters"?

Mr Popo's a turban-wearing lookalike of every black character in the horrifically racist Tintin in the Congo.
