Broly
Nah, but it would be funny. :lol:

I would say Cell.
It would be cool to see him as a Hero. Trying to keep up with the likes of Goku and Vegeta in terms of strength. Trying to fit in with the rest of the Z fighters. He would be the one throwing all the wisecracks. Maybe have a rivalry with Gohan?
Oh, it would be awesome! :D

He would definitely be a powerful ally.

Cell would definitely be my choice too. A rivalry with Gohan? That's genius! Plus Goku himself never actually defeated Cell, so there would be a sort of teasing aspect to Cell staying alive and training (the same way Goku never actually defeated Vegeta in a duel... although he definitely could).

Cell could also provide some welcome snark and attitude after Piccolo has mellowed out in the Buu Saga and Vegeta has mellowed out in the Beerus Saga.

The comedy that could be mined from a neutrally-aligned Cell that basically acts as the Vegeta to Gohan's Goku, but Gohan just wants to be left alone and write books... I'd kill for that.

It would seem Cell is the obvious choice for a redemption arc/switching of sides because he's the only antagonist never really given that option. Freeza said "screw you" to Goku's peace offering and got blown to bits for it, everyone else joined the team, and 17 just decided to stop being a jerk.

Captain Ginyu!!!!!!!!!!

-I've always seen him neutral.
-His personality is gold.
-He's still technically alive.
-He can switch bodies with someone strong to close the gap between himself and the others.
-Best henchman ever.
-He's purple.

Ginyu or Tagoma. Simply because they were two of the villains who actually seemed to have some kind of heart. And they have cool designs and/or abilities.

I think Nappa might have work if Vegeta didn't kill him. He can live with Vegeta and Bluma, he can become a SSj along with Vegeta during the Cyborg arc. Not to mention I can see Trunks looking up to him as a uncle.

Janemba. His real-warping powers and abilities would produce some awesome gags and visual humour. He'd be like real-life Looney Toon.

Nappa is a fun choice. He could have worked as security staff at Capsule Corps, lol. Would he have married someone?

He prob marry a no name girl. Lol but that be cool he would be the yamcha of sayians.

I think cooler would be a good ally. Say he goes there to kill goku and friends for murdering his family. But ends up seeing that his family were a bunch of pricks. And ends up siding with goku. He would be useful up till android saga however it wouldn't be until Frieza movie where we realize he never trains or spars. So he decides to train with goku, vegeta and whis. And gain a crazy boost of power to fight against his brother.

Raditz or Nappa, definitely. Although, ironically, I can more easily imagine Nappa as a good guy than Raditz.

For Movie villains, Broly, Garlic Junior, or 13

For someone who complained so much when the Buu saga turned DBZ into the Super Saiyan Show, I find myself having a soft spot for both Nappa and Raditz as heroes. I imagine they'd both be hilarious additions to the main lineup.

Cell's another strong choice due to his personality and overall abilities making him incredibly handy as an ally.

Dabura, Ginyu and Zarbon are all other villains I wouldn't have minded seeing turn good. I blame Tenkaichi 2's What If Story for my desire to see Zarbon switch sides and Toriko's Sunny for encouraging the thought further.

Now that I think about it. Having darbura as an ally would be awesome. King of Hefl haha. Would be a great ally and knowing about magic and such. Also his spit to stone thing would be cool. It also be cool if he made friends with most his emirs before hand.

Like nappa in the sayain saga.
Then cooler after Frieza saga.
Then maybe cell but you can skip that if you include Darbura who is more less super perfect cells power level.
And we'll go from there

Although he wasn't entirely a villain, I think it would have been great to have Android 16 survive the events of the Cell Games and become a permanent member of the Z-Fighters. Although his power would have been trivial against the villains that presented themselves in the Buu arc (with the exclusion of Pui Pui and Yakon), he could have been somewhat useful for tactical purposes. I could also see him taking a courageous stand against Super Buu on the lookout.

Dabura also would have portrayed a pretty cool transition from villain to hero in my opinion. Considering how his little scuffle with Majin Buu initially turned out, I'm not sure how much help he would have been against the stronger forms of Buu like Kid Buu / Super Buu. If he somehow manages to get past that, it would have been cool to have him included against the big battle against Frieza's lackeys. Underneath his vile nature, I could see a hint of what seems to remotely resemble a noble persona.

I liked that subtle sense of honor that Ginyu portrayed against Goku. Plus he never really came off all that vile and rotten in comparison to Frieza's other lackeys like Dodoria for instance. I guess the closest we got to Ginyu giving up his evil ways was when he was shown as a frog in a pond at the Capsule Corporation during one of the filler scenes.

I would love to see that. I could see Nappa, Cooler, android 16, and darbura vs all those minions at the end of revival of f. Or possibly in super. Ooh perhaps fusions that be so awesome
