How Would You Make Simple Fixes For Issues In DB?

Post by theherodjl » Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:24 pm

Like how U7 had five Kaioshin instead of one like the other universes. What I'd do is just have U7's five Kaioshin be five generations of individual Kaioshin who just never retired and/or died.

That is assuming Universe 7 was the wrong one by having five Kaioshins.

For now, I can say that I would "fix" that problem by not being lazy. I would come up with five Kaioshins for each Universe. Or by being "half lazy", only Dai Kaioshin would go to the Tournament of Power.

I would have someone review every plot to catch issues and simply ass an explanation. For example, Trunks could explain his spirit sword by saying he trained with King Kai and was learning a version of the spirit bomb.

I'm part of the camp who feels that the series could stand to have less transformations. I don't mean Puar's or Launch's. Some fans may not even know that transformations existed back in DB classic. Obviously this is referring to the exclusivist ones introduced back in the Freeza arc and have been piling up since then. Freeza's forms aren't all too preferred either, in my opinion, but they're not as elaborated or centralised as the Saiyan ones.

If you mean consistency issues then one that comes to mind is Goku transporting Boss Rabbit and his minions to the moon. How did he travel such a distance without losing consciousness and succumbing to the vacuum of space? It was clearly written as a mere gag (plus cultural reference I think) but since the series has long since been treading down the path of at least adopting more serious elements then an explanation may not hurt.

One issue that bother me was the all deal with Monster Carrot.

Here I would had some dialogue later in the manga having Goku but I went to the moon and here explain that Earth Dragon Ball Moon is closer to the earth and earth atmosphere extend to the moon making the moon almost breathable.

Explain that there is only one Grand Priest for all timelines. So we're not in the dark not knowing whatever happened to his Future self.

Angels have control over time, so naturally the original Angel would be Time Lord.

don't have the battle powers ballon so god dang much during the freeza arc. i'm not against battle powers, and i really like how their used in the saiyan arc, but it just frustrates me how big they get during namek, it makes such a gap with the characters it's ridiculous, and really harms the story and character usage.

i also think it's sorta dumb that freeza got a battle power, he shouldn't have been pinned down.

Don't make Goku a one man army after training with Karin. Just about anything that people complain about when it comes to power and saiyans, can be attributed to Goku easily defeating Tao the second time, then ransacking the rest of the RR army at their HQ on his own.

Just make death matter once again.

Goku should've never majorly outclassed the rest of the cast, because it completely goes against the concept of his character. He's always striving to get stronger, but because he's already so insanely strong, he only ever has to compare himself to the villain. Goku as he is would've made an extremely appealing support character, breaking the shonen mold a bit in that sense where the show is told from the perspective of someone like Krillin. But we need to see the hero struggle over broader periods, not just in one singular fight at a time. It would've fit his character type far more neatly if the severity of his training was what got him over his allies - think a "Vegeta is naturally powerful, but Goku trains like a MF'er" type thing.

You could say they were all Kaiohsin Apprentice's like Zimzam and only the one absorbed by Buu was an actual Kaioshin. Why they needed four, who knows.

Have only one set of Dragon Balls and make sure they're very limited in power and usage.

It's not really that big of an issue since Monster Carrot most likely died when Roshi blasted a Kamehameha at the moon during the 21st Budokai to stop the rampaging Oozaru Goku. But thinking about it, he could have died due to a lack of water pretty quickly.

I mean they sort of have with Zen-Oh and the angels, though I must say it's not a very solid power ceiling, they should do more to re-enforce it.

1. In the Android arc have it revealed that the Humans have Kaio-Ken. I would also increase the number of Androids by 1. Gero would appear with 19 and 21. The Humans when working together are able to defeat one Android but Piccolo and the SSJs can beat them one on one. Doesn't really matter but I guess 17 and 18 could have another companion besides 16. I would have Tien, Yamacha, Kuririn and Piccolo enter the ROSAT together and just change the two person limit to being the room only has enough resources for two Saiyans. 3 humans and a namekian would be fine in the ROSAT for a year. This will be important as later as the humans and Piccolo will have to try and stall SPC as Goku talks Gohan back into the fight.

2. To make Kid Buu more dangerous I will give him the title of strongest Buu again. Goku and Vegeta will receive part of Vegito's power allowing them to fight this new Buu without having Gohan show up to fight.
