Does anyone know what happened to Icarus ?

Post by shonenhikada » Fri May 29, 2015 1:16 pm

I remember a couple months back someone on this forum said Icarus and Gohan had a little falling out in the 3 year time gap for the androids and fought to the death. Anyone can confirm ?

He's in the same place Paikuhan, Garlic Junior, Pigaro, Mr. Shuu, and mega ultra super Yamcha are.

Icarus is in filler jail awaiting trial for misdemeanors against continuity.

Flew too close to the sun.

Clearly learnt nothing from the Cooler movie.

Can't wait for him to be brought back as a metal dragon though.

He either died in the Cooler's Revenge movie.... or he came at Chi-Chi at the wrong place at the wrong time...

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.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

Yeah, who they're actually talking about is Hire Dragon, Gohan's mascot from movies 3-5, the Garlic Jr. arc, and the driving episode.

Hire Dragon?
Isn't it Haiya?

Haiya is the direct romanization. Herms always writes it as Hire, so, based on my faith of Herms's Hermsiness, I find myself assuming that's the term they're going for. As in, he's meant to be ridden as transportation, like a dragon for hire.

(That said, my first exposure to the term was Pioneer's subs for movie 3, which took Haiya in another direction and referred to him as "Higher Dragon," as in a dragon that's higher in the sky than yours, I guess.)

Their falling out actually happened after Goku died. Gohan, desperately in need of a father figure and scarred after seeing his dad kamikaze, started dressing Icarus in Goku's clothes, something that did not sit well with the pesky dragon. Icarus tried to reason with him in his native "dragon" tongue, but Gohan didn't want to hear any of it. Instead, the young boy yelled and cussed at Icarus, confusing him for his father: "Why were you never around!? Instead of training, why couldn't you spend more time with me! And now you're gone!" Icarus, scared, tried to slap some sense into him. Gohan, unfortunately, was not in a state that could be reasoned with, and instead transformed into a SSJ2. They then commenced to fight to the death. Needless to say, Chi Chi prepared a huge dinner that day.
"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

All very interesting. Would make sense that its name is a pun, though it doesn't sound like Herms himself has clarified, that it is a pun.
You'd think punny names would be listed in one of the guides to clarify this.

Yeah, in Japanese the English word "hire" (ハイヤー/Haiyaa) is used to refer to a hired car. In Dr. Slump, Chivil rides around a very similar-looking dragon called "Taxi Dragon", and so the DBZ character seems to be a recycling of this idea. Of course, Gohan's not really paying this creature, but he's using him to ride around on. I suppose "Chauffeur Dragon" might have been a good way to adapt the name into English. Even if it's hard to imagine a little kid naming their pet that (but then, "Hire Dragon" probably has the same problem).

I actually don't have a big problem with the Funi dub just going with "Icarus", although it's sort of an ill-fated thing to name a creature you're going to ride around on. They might as well have named him "Hindenburg".
