I wasn't really sure whether this fit more this section or in-universe, but since I'm thinking of it more in just a design way...I'm opting for here. I should also add that this isn't really something I'm clamoring for, just something that occurred to me earlier.
Suppose a video game in the future (like Heroes or something) decided to give a what-if 'Golden' form to Cooler - it's entirely possible, since there's been plenty of what if forms for characters in games before. If such a thing happened, which form do you think would get the design tweaks applied to? This one -
- or this one?
On the one hand, Freeza utilized his Golden form from his final form (which is basically akin to the first one we see Cooler in), rather than his 100% form, so it's possible it'd be that one for Cooler as well. At the same time though, Cooler's 'final form' is much more of a new form entirely than Freeza's 100% one was, which was basically just his final form only more muscular. So either option is logical enough for what it is...although given that Heroes is the most likely place something like this could happen, logic is the last thing they'd be thinking of anyway.
Which of the two forms do you guys think would most likely be tweaked for this hypothetical new form for Cooler? Which form would you rather see it happen for, if at all? For my own part, I'm expecting that if it happens, it'd be to the first one, but personally I'd prefer the latter, as it'd make the form at least a little more different from Freeza's than it would otherwise be.
