What is your favorite fight of each DragonBall series?

Post by ruler9871 » Tue May 07, 2019 7:50 pm

Pick your single favorite fight from each of the 6 DB series. My are:

Early DB: Goku vs Piccolo Jr.

Z/Kai: Goku vs Majin Vegeta

GT: Goku jr. vs Vegeta jr.

Super Anime: MUI Goku, Freeza & 17 vs Jiren

Super Manga: CSSB Goku vs Merged Zamasu

The Movies: Gogeta vs Broly (DBS)

What are your choices?

You know, the contrarians who think DB should be a Slice-of-Life series, the folks who worship Pre-Raditz Dragonball uncritically, the folks who downplay and often flat-out deny that Dragonball is an action series, the folks who try to push that false argument that none of the serious moments in the series were mean't to be taken seriously, etc.

Dragonball doesn't have a single tone. It has both silly and serious moments, both humor and drama, just like real life. The idea that a work of fiction should be only all-comedy or all-serious is unnatural and frankly, retarded.

DB/first half of the manga: Goku vs. Piccolo Jr.

Z/second half of the manga: Gotenks vs. Boo/Goku vs. Freeza (but only in the manga, for that second one)

GT: ...Goku/Vegeta/everyone vs. Yi Xing Long, I guess? Goku vs. Super #17 is the most fun visually, though.

Super: Goku/Freeza/#17 vs. Jiren (anime); Goku vs. Jiren (manga)

Movies: Goku vs. Broly (DBS: Broly)

Fights in DB are more fun for me when they have plot and character development wrapped into them and are actively progressing a story through their own twists and turns, rather than just when they're just delivering flashy spectacle. For that reason, Goku vs. Majin Vegeta is a fan-favorite fight that's never done anything for me--all of the interesting story content is right at the beginning, and then it's just an evenly matched bout with no particular developments until it ends. (Or, in the case of the manga, it just doesn't really exist.)

Goku vs Jackie Chun is my favorite from the first section of the manga. It's a truly unique fight, with enough levity to keep it from being bogged down in melodrama, but it's serious enough to not seem like fluff. It has a good length, plenty of unique moves that make it stand out, and a kickass insert song in the anime. Favorite fight in the franchise, hands-down.

For the Z portion of the series, it's a tie between Gohan, Krillin, Tenshinhan, Chiaotzu, and Piccolo vs. Nappa, and Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan vs Recoome. I like these too for pretty much the same reasons. I'm a big fan of the "gang up on the strong guy" fights (possibly why I actually like the melee with Jiren in the Tournament of Power), and Nappa and Recoome are such fun, over the top characters that it doesn't get boring for me.

What’s with the fascination of Goku Jr. vs Vegeta Jr.? That was at most a 1 minute fight with no real substance.

DB - Goku vs Majunior

DBZ - Goku and Everyone vs Vegeta

DBGT - Tough one because the fights aren’t that good, but maybe the final fight with Yi Xing Long

DBS - Goku/Freeza/17 against Jiren (short fight WITH substance)

DBS Manga - Don’t really have an answer, can’t remember any fights

Movies - DBS Broly fights (can’t choose one, they all look really good)
Heroes come and go, but legends are forever.

60.

The Ledgic fight was very short and the Rildo fight had 0 hand to hand choreography. Vegeta's beat down on Freeza in ep27 (which may be the shortest main fights in Super) had more choreography than every fight in GT put together.
