His magic is nothing. He drains energy? Yeah, the other Dragon Ball villains did it better.Kaiza_Toshiyuki wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:59 pmSetting Aside his unique design and his inclusion as an ancient character, Is the fact that his magic counters Goku and Vegeta on a fundamental level not enough to make him unique?
His magic is the worst part of his character, you have magic which can be used to pull off a lot of cool and twisted concepts and Toyo does basically nothing with it outside of energy drain and improved afterimage, not one hint of creativity with magic. The fake leaks that had Moro pulling off a load of tricks like making Vegeta think he was melting are far more creative and unique than anything Moro has done. Zamasu did more when he started summoning bricks.
...What part of that makes him less bland and forgettable?Based on his act of killing his underling and seeing the rest of the universe as his food?He isn't 'just another villain', he's 'just another villain's semi-notable henchmen'.
Fuck, what villain doesn't kill their underling these days? It's like 'Vilainy 101: Prove you're a super bastard'
Eh, the expansion of the Galactic patrol could be interesting, but for the most part, it's just bringing a lot of past events into question. Their incompetence is what explained their lacking involvement and place in the universe, implying that they've been far more competent and been around for so long, it brings up a lot of glaring issues. Doesn't help how they seem to be very selectively knowledgable about past sagas. They seem to know all the details about the majin buu saga, yet don't know about Vegeta and Goku's involvment. They know all this shit about the Kais and how the universe work, yet Beerus is still thought of as a myth.Perhaps, but it does a good job of expanding the Galactic Patrol beyond the only member we know.They didn't 'had to have Meerus', all he's done is make little sense and very awkwardly not fit it.
Backlash against Roshi was for a culmination of reasons, not just a weaker character standing up to a character he shouldn't be able to. There'd be nothing odd about Jaco being able to distract Moro with gadgets and his unorthodox behavior than Meerus (Though, in both situations, this plan only works because Moro is an idiot who doesn't swat the fly that can't hurt him. Even then, how does this plan help? Are they just trusting that Moro doesn't fly away back into space?).While he has been competent before, not on the same level of Merus. Had he come in and done to Moro what Merus did, it would have had a lot more fan backlash. Remember when Roshi came in with his false ultra instinct?Jaco wouldn't be acting out of character, he's shown that he can be competent before, though he'd actually perform these acts in much more entertaining ways. Having Jaco trip up and desperately scramble to keep the situation together as he's mid panic under his breath is far more engaging than Meerus trying to hard to be cool.
Introducing a new character who is the best of the best in the galactic patrol makes a lot more sense as to why he is so skilled, if not a bit annoying with how hard toyotaro is trying to make him seem so cool. It works in some places and less in others.
Plus, in my experience Fans are much more forgiving of an existing character doing this than a new character.
