Goku and Gohan should've been Vegans

Post by DestructoDisc » Wed Oct 16, 2019 1:57 pm

They constantly say many times that they hate watching innocents get hurt. By that logic, shouldn't they also hate the fact that thousands of innocent animals get killed and turned into food? This makes them hypocrites! Humans getting killed is bad, but animals that didn't do anything wrong to anyone getting killed is okay? Toriyama should've made Goku and Gohan vegans.

So what you're saying, people that eat meat want others to get hurt.

No. What i'm saying is that people who eat meat have no problem with innocent animals getting killed and turned into food. Goku and Gohan said many times that they hate innocents getting hurt. Yet they're fine with animals getting killed, heck they killed some innocent fish themselves. They should've been vegans.

I don't know whether I should take this topic seriously and whether I should talk about it in-universe-wise, but anyway, veganism had not been widely known in Japan until only a few years ago.

Ah my bad, so you're saying, people that eat meat don't mind animal abuse :think: You should rethink that.

Small sacrifices are necessary should million if not billions of lives are at stake

In this case, Goku & Gohan replenishing their energies by eating whatver food available at Mt Paozu (Giant fishes seems primary food source🤣🤣🤣) in order to prevent catastrophy be it Saiyan, Frieza, Cell, Majin Boo, Baby, Super 17, S. Dragons

Making them vegan would lead to iron-deficiency anemia & lookin at the rate of blood loss our warriors normally experience in battle, they wouldn't be able to sustain their muscular, super-amped states very long. Trust me. The last thing you'd ever want is watchin ur fav Goku or Gohan catchin their breaths in less than 1 min into a fight cuz blood loss & fatigue😂😂😂

Instead of fighting Cell they could just bore him to death by talking about their new Vegan Lifestyle. Great idea!

Even though I’m guessing we’re not supposed to take this thread seriously, it does raise an interesting point. Since there are sentient anthropomorphic animals in the world of Dragon Ball, where exactly do people like Goku draw the line? Come to think of it, Goku did eat a talking fish at the beginning of the series, and he was considering eating Turtle. That’s not even getting into the fact that Yaijrobe ate one of King Piccolo’s children. Would it be legal to eat Oolong?

Still, that seems more like a discussion for the In-Universe board.

I don't know if it would be illegal, but it would be immoral to eat a person, even if it's an anthropomorphized one. It's also quite the stretch to say he considered eating Turtle. Lastly, given Piccolo's children are demons and evil, I'm not crying foul over Yajirobe consuming them.

This smells like a troll thread
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

Maybe they can convince Cell to also become vegan. Then again, does Cell even need to eat to stay alive?

Your premise is that people who are altruistic shouldn't be eating meat. You're either trolling or have some cartoonishly absurd views of morality that you're trying to push on everyone, which is a discussion that I don't think people are interested in having.

Point he is missing is Goku & Gohan aren't even altruistic.
Both fight for selfish reasons sugar-coated by AT in the name of "saving or protecting Chikyuu & minna"🤣🤣🤣
As much as I like both of them, let's do little analysis
1. RRA Arc: Goku demolished the regime as they murdered Bora & came across Goku's way too often

2. Piccolo Arc: Goku wanted revenge for Krillin, Roshi

3. Saiyan Arc: Goku wanna save Gohan frm Raditz & later his F&F against Veggie & Nappa

4. Namek & Frieza Arc: Selfish reasons to gather Namekians DB's & revive their friends. And Goku & Gohan were determined to fight whatever may come in their path till fckin Frieza...

Too tired to do Cell & Boo Arc but you get the point...I'm not saying Goku & Gohan are selfish mfkers like Veggie...but they def aren't altruistic & to say they should be vegans is hilarious

That better not be blaming Toriyama. Because he didnt say that they were heroic at all, he didnt sugarcoat anything.

Ignoring that this is a troll post, I'm sure Goku wouldnt even know what a vegan is. And I think Gohan just wouldnt care.

It wasn't a blame. Sugar-coat in that post was intended to be in good faith.

Even Fat Boo's mass murdering can be said as sugar-coated when he turned mass civilians into candy/cookies.
