Is there a Dragon Ball Z thread? If not...

    I just wonder who that evil guy was that drove him to this

    Jiren going to overcome odds

    Otherwise asspull of the damn series

    It was 17 who drew first blood and none of them are as strategic

    That in itself was an asspull. We are shown at the beginning of ToP Jiren dodges blocks without moving. Goku says "he predicted their movements" even though he wasn't really looking at them. He then blocks Hits attack effortlessly while finishing off Goku. He basically wasn't touched by Time Skip, AN ATTACK THAT SKIPS TIME and now you are telling me 17 sneaked on him without him noticing lol. Jiren has been nerfed to Tien tier

    DB already did strong silent type with a secret heart of gold thing with 16. So Jiren is free to take the powerful good guy who's also a real asshole slot.

    Maybe he isn't really the quiet type by nature, maybe he just keeps his mouth shut because he knows people don't really like him.

    Shit, when the going gets tough Jiren's friends abandon his causes. Whereas Goku's friends are literally willing to die just so he can get a good power nap.

    So doing cool looking shit just for the lols is all it takes to impress you?

    Then you should be a Vegeta fan pre Super also.

    That's all it took to impress all of you with Jiren, soooo.....
    It doesn't help that none of Jiren's attacks are memorable. Goku Black was shittacular but he at least did cool things like the scythe and his hand blade fighting style. Plus I was a fan of his overall design and presentation, even if he did ruin that whenever he opened his mouth.

    Jiren does boring ass generic moves with a pasted on backstory while wearing the same outfit as 9 other dudes and looking like if you slapped Freeza 'ears' on a swole Grey

    Broly > Jiren

    Broly being triggered by a crying baby ruins the character.

    It's funny how y'all pick and choose when plot and story matters in Dragon Ball. You criticize some dumb shit that happens, and it's all "lol it's Dragon Ball don't take it seriously they just punch shit hard and move fast". But when you take a non-canon movie character who epitomizes that and makes the Z-Fighters look like bitches, it's "omg he's not a deep enough character what's his motivation why he clothesline Vegeta like that why he punt Goku I need answers".

    Kiss my ass.

    Dragon Ball doesn't have to be Shakepeare but they missed fast break lay up with Broly. Vegeta's father tried to murder him and father. He finds out Vegeta is still alive. Vegeta looks just like his father. Surely Broly is going to want vengeance against Vegeta. Nope, he's mad because while he was in a nursery, the baby next to him was crying. That's not even a good Toriyama gag. That's just fucking lame.

    They said that he’s British because when he goes ssj rosé a bit of zamasu is in him so that’s why he goes British.

    Aight, I respect it. Dub only myself, but with the episode gap between versions I've had to deal.

    Man.......Goku Black is legit the only straight villain Super has had. That's sad

    lmao I saw some comments on people complaining about Jiren's backstory and how it's another reason Z was better.

    Like who the fuck in Z had a nuanced backstory? Frieza was just presented as a space dictator, Cell was just a weapon Gero made and he just wanted to be perfect, I don't even remember the androids having much, and Buu is just a weird magical monster that wants to destroy everything and eat candy.

    Dragon ball has always been heavier leaning on character developement rather than backstory. Honestly I'm surprised they even tried to show some insight into his past.

    DB Super has been better about character development for most of the cast compared to DBZ.

    As for the Androids motivations in DBZ, at first they were just gonna go along with the 'kill Goku' directive (mostly due to what was programmed into Android 16).... because they were bored.
    The Bad Future Trunks timeline is basically what happens when they get too bored and end up deciding to just rampage for the lulz.

    The nuance here is that jiren is not a villain in fact he's the greatest hero among the universes

    Goku is a dimwit who wants to fight strong people. He readily accepting his position as villain. Because it would drive people to fight him all out.

    Of course goku is going to win, but if he doesn't that is even more interesting

    It would be hilarious if jiren throws that one punch and kills freiza then gets dq'd even though freiza is dead

    As predictable as the ending to Super's gonna be, I really really hope they nail the execution. I want a drawn out, exhausting, epic fucking fight and I want the conclusion to be satisfying as shit.

    You're asking for alot. Speaking of ending...

    How do people actually want super to end? Jokes aside and all. Who should really take it?

    With it being all a Bad Dream of Yamcha's. Yamcha is actually the series strongest character, married to Bulma, Goku been dead since he was only 12.
    Or have the St Elswwhere ending where everything is going on in the mind of a young Gohan's mind

    I want a ending that the fan base will be pissed about.

    So basically it seems the three final episodes of the arc are UI Goku vs Jiren. Not gonna be surprised in the least if Goku wins and U7 is the only "survivor" out of all the 8 contenders.

    We'll see 17s family when they revive him and give him a boat on Super's ending.

    Fixed that for you.


    I'd be cool with a Jiren's backstory episode. Plot exposition like that doesn't really have the weight it needs to make an impact.
    It's like having Future Trunks' entire backstory being what he told to Goku when he first arrived.


    By the way, remind me. What has Frieza done in the ToP?
    Dude scared some mooks into eliminating themselves, and gave Goku some energy.

    Oh yeah, he got bodied. Over and over again.

    The Japanese couldn't have Cell as their favorite villain, it had to be the "Ohohoho (Gets stomped into a power nap)" dude.

    didn't freiza save goku from being eliminated by kicking him?

    Wish the bad dude never existed. He never become strong as fuck. Pride troopers are a bunch of tree huggers. Belmod has destroyed 3/4 of U11 by the time of the tourney. U7 wins and comment "well that last boss big ass monster fused was tough wasnt it. "
