Pikkon Mystery

Post by Saiya-jin » Wed Feb 22, 2006 4:27 pm

I was wondering, what ever happened to Pikkon? It seems to me that he sort of just "dissappeared" when the Majin Buu arc started up. :?:

You can attribute the fact he didn't play a key role in the main series to the fact that he was a Filler Character.

However, did he not appear in several other -short- Fillers? I also seem to recall him playing a major role in Movie 12.

Sorry, I haven't seen much of the Buu Saga.

Sorry, I forgot all about that, I haven't seen it in awhile.

From what I recall of movie 12, he was killed a second time, while he was dead, so he never came back. He disappeared, I suppose.

Movie 12 doesn't fit into canon, though. Manga or anime. There's no place for it. And Paikuhan wasn't killed, he didn't do much real fighting. I think he held out with Janemba and then just screamed at Enma's palace for the rest of the movie.

:P Well, he's in Movie 12...

Other than that, all I can say is it's because Pikkon was created by Toei and not Toriyama-sensei, which is probably why... :P

He was designed by Toriyama.
Where's the beef?

Even so, the Anoyachi Budokai wasn't part of the manga, where Pikkon was introduced. I guess Toriyama-sensei could've had him go the the Tenkaichi Budokai with Goku and then help fight Majin Buu. That'd be cool. :D

Well, Pikkon did make an appearance after Buu destroyed Earth. He got to get one good crack at him when Buu teleported to the Dai-Kaio planet, but to no avail. As DBZ MAN also says, he watched the final fight with Krillin and Yamcha as Goku and Vegeta gave it their all against Buu. Also, as mentioned already, Movie 12 can't possibly take place in either the manga or anime canon of DBZ, so Pikkon's "death" shouldn't be considered.

Paikuhan is a dead filler character, not more really.

Did he appear in GT? Other than that he's in a movie and that's it I think.

Paikuhan didn't even die, he just got beat up by Janemba.

Conan, Paikuhan is indeed a dead filler character. The fact that he lives in the afterlife and has a halo proves that he's dead. (Although he's still pretty damn cool).

I thought Bejita meant that he was dead in the context of Pikkon not ever being seen again after the After-Life Budokai.

No: dead as in dead. People are saying he was only killed in movie 12, which is out and out wrong.

Which means that since he was already dead, Janemba got rid of him for good...

He didn't die die, otherwise there woulda been a far bigger deal made out of it. Ironicaly No one really died in that movie.
