Preferred Character of each series?

Post by Cetra » Thu May 17, 2018 6:19 am

If you had to choose one for each series as well as all movie combined who would it be?

Dragon Ball: Son Gokuu
Dragon Ball Z: Vegeta
Dragon Ball Movies: Broly
Dragon Ball GT: Pan
Dragon Ball Super: Zamasu

Could you actually decide to pick one for each series if you were asked?

DragonBoru : Mutaito Sama, Muten Roshi, Tsuru Senin, Karin Sama. I find these ancient martial artists deserve extended chapters on their gurus, their training regiments & enlightment which made them into such iconic

DoragonBoru Zetto : Raditz, Vegeta, Guru, Dabura & Uub

DoragonBoru GT : Dr. Myuu & Rildo. These 2 truly demand proper backstory as to how their conquest via Machine Mutant & conception of Baby, a Tuffle life form came into picture

DBZ Movies : Burori, Bojacku. These guys are such remarkable powerhouses dat just a slice of life would be red hot

DB Supa : The Grand Priest, Whis, Celestials etc

This it tough since Goku is my favorite character across the board, but excluding him my favorites would be:

Dragon Ball era - Kuririn until the 22nd Budokai, Tenshinhan until the end of the 23rd

Z era - Piccolo during the Saiyan and Namek arcs, Future Trunks during the Android arc, Gohan during the Boo arc

GT - Pan

Super - Freeza

Honestly, I want to just say Kuririn since he's my favorite character period. :P But if I had to take into consideration a few places where he may not have been as prevalent as he could have been and pick someone else (or just give a different answer each time not to be predictable, even if it meant going with second favorites), then I guess I'd say...

Dragon Ball: Kuririn (or General Blue)
Dragon Ball Z/Kai: Kuririn (or Freeza)
Dragon Ball GT: Pan
Dragon Ball Super: Kuririn (or Jaco)
Dragon Ball (Movies): Kuririn (or Beerus)

And just as a bonus though I haven't seen anyone else do this category yet -

Dragon Ball (Video Games): Vegeta

What can I say, much as I may dislike him as a character for much of his arc, the man is usually one of my best to use in the games for some reason.

By "preferred" do you just mean favorite? If so:

Dragon Ball: Goku and Tao Pai Pai
Goku is an endearingly-smarmy cunt all the way through, and Tao Pai Pai's just got the most hilarious repertoire of techniques and methods of doing things.

Dragon Ball Z: Piccolo and Vegeta
I enjoy watching both of them develop from villains to heroes. Vegeta in particular I enjoy watching be sneaky in the Namek arc, and regularly get knocked down a peg to contrast with his bloated ego.

Dragon Ball GT: Goku
The endearingly-smarmy cunt returns.

Dragon Ball Super: Whis and Freeza
Whis give no fucks about anything, and always seems to be taking the piss; and I really enjoy the turn Freeza's been making as of late.

Dragon Ball: Lunch. Really fun idea, hilarious in practice, and while she could have just been nothing more than a gag character, she's a solid character too, who's actually a lot of fun, and has a lot of really cool moments that can get quite serious.
Dragon Ball Z: Farmer with shotgun. :P (Joking aside, it's Piccolo. For so many reasons)
Dragon Ball GT: Vegeta. The subtle character development he undergoes in GT is really cool, and the moments when that's pushed to the forefront are crowning moments of awesome.
The movies: Lucifer. He's a vampier who wears sunglasses and wants to blow up the sun with a laser.
Super: Beerus. Because cat loves food, ye-yeah yeah yeeaahh. ;)
Never lose hope that your situation can improve.

DB: Goku - Other characters were often short-lived, and Goku was honestly pretty entertaining with his extreme oblivious naivete.

DBZ: Gohan - Badass of the Cell arc, which was my favorite arc of Dragon Ball. I also found his filler episodes in the Buu arc pretty fun.

Movies: Slug - He's basically just an alien King Piccolo, who comes to Earth and wishes for his youth back. But I don't give a #$*&, one tiny little innocent #*$@. When I feel that I'm #$*& out of luck, I find myself stupefied, coming back again. Also, the movie is kinda nostalgic for me. lol

GT: Gogeta - Super Saiyan 4 was one of the few good things to come out of the series.

Super: Vegeta - He had a ton of good moments. It's clear the staff has some Vegeta fans in it.

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.
