At the end of the Cell Saga the show was supposed to end. Goku was supposed to stay dead. Gohan was supposed to take his place as the biggest bad ass and guardian of the Earth.

The fans found out and bitched. And thus was born the Buu Saga. Bibbity Bobbity Buu? No WAY that could have been pulled out of their ass just to appease fans. **** , if you really look at it (especially in GT) you can see that the writers kept bringing it to a point where it was supposed to end, only to be dragged back into doing it. If you pay attention you can almost hear them going, "aaand DONE! **** THIS SHOW I AM DONE WITH IT! *fans rage* What the **** ?! I gotta keep doing ******* Dragon Ball?!"

Z was supposed to be about Gohan and him replacing his father as the Earth's hero.

But Toriyama later decided that he was unfit for the role, and let him get absorbed by Buu.
#28 to #3 - tomthehippie (05/31/2013) [-]
Actually Toriyama was pressured into that choice by angry fans.
User avatar #32 to #28 - saiyajinwarrior (06/01/2013) [-]
Nah, that's just another popular DBZ rumor. He stated himself that he changed the story because he felt that Gohan would be unsuited for the role as the main hero.
#80 to #32 - tomthehippie (06/01/2013) [-]
I feel like he said that to save face. The reasoning behind that being the Buu Saga. Bibbity Bobbity Buu? Yeah, come on, like he didn't pull that out of his ass at the last second after the fans raged.

Either he gave into fan rage, or just couldn't be ****** to try that hard after the Cell Saga.

Damn straight bitches.

Except for how he spent a lot of his time getting his ass kicked or just trying to catch up to Goku. Love Vegeta but he has 0 protagonist power.

Hey buddy you're still prince of all Saiyans! Go blow up some asteroids or eat some bug people. It'll make you feel better.

Personally, I enjoyed Vegeta up until the end of the Namek saga. I know it's pointless to get angry at the decisions made in the story but when Vegeta let Cell achieve his final form out of ignorance it really pissed me off.
User avatar #43 to #38 - Ging (06/01/2013) [-]
But Buu saga Vegeta was amazing. From discontent to evil again to martyr to the strongest being in existence to the worlds strongest coffee candy to co-savior of existence. It the cornerstone of his true legacy.
#58 - bluwizard (06/01/2013) [-]
Krillin, just an average guy observing things far too fantastical for him to achieve.

They could retell DBZ this way and it'd be like the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
#55 - zorororonoa (06/01/2013) [-]
But he is weaker than Goku.

I like Vegeta more too
User avatar #72 to #55 - cintan (06/01/2013) [-]
You understand what a main character is, right?
He doesn't have to be the strongest to be the main character.
User avatar #59 to #55 - dedaluminus (06/01/2013) [-]
He's weaker than Goku because unlike Goku, he didn't spend his entire life training taking breaks only to impregnate his wife, eat vast quantities of food, and die heroically. Vegeta stayed with his family and raised his children directly, taking time off from his training to do so.
#60 to #59 - rayphantom (06/01/2013) [-]
goku also trained in the other world for ****** ever, any anyone who trains over there comes back strong as ****
User avatar #65 to #59 - osimonmagus (06/01/2013) [-]
Vegeta was stronger than Goku in the Saiyan Saga. If not one had interfered with the battle Goku would have been killed.

Yeah, but saying he got more character devellopment than Goku's like saying that a desert is wetter than the surface of the sun. It's true, but it's still pretty ******* dry.
#31 to #29 - anon (06/01/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure he meant all of the characters, not just Goku.

Every saga? What the **** are you on about?
What about the original Dragon Ball?
#49 to #48 - anon (06/01/2013) [-]
Every Z saga.
User avatar #61 to #49 - nucularwar (06/01/2013) [-]
The Z was added on when it came to America, the comics and the original anime didn't have any difference.

Okay! We get it! You like DBZ! Now stop trying to thumb whore by posting this on every DBZ post that is made! Jesus, Shut the **** up!
#8 to #7 - anon (05/31/2013) [-]
Nah, he hates DBZ because the villains don't have some complex, angsty back story to them.

He's crazy about Bleach and MLP though. Perfectly okay if they're not complex, but how dare DBZ not be complex....
User avatar #9 to #8 - Pyromie ONLINE (05/31/2013) [-]
I'd have to disagree with the DBZ villains lacking complexity bit. I would have enjoyed more of a back story for a few of them, but they still had their time to shine without causing MORE filler episodes.

My favorite villain character from Dragon Ball Z is Freiza.

Why? Allow me to walk you through it, backwards. Majin Buu was a being of, quite literally, pure evil. Evil majiks crafted his every being, giving him the motive and drive to destroy the world, the universe, and the realm itself. There's nothing more to it.

Cell was a being with pre-set goals installed within him. Sure, his Saiyan blood boiled at challenge, which ended in his downfall, and he was a very interesting character, but in the end, he was built to be -evil- by Dr. Gero, to kill Goku, and destroy the world.

Now. Freiza.

We have -no freaking clue- about his backstory - We don't know what he's gone through, we don't know much about his species. We know that he's a Prince of the Universe, with his father being King, that he's a tyrant, evil little man who revels in the destruction of all who apposes him.

But that's about it.

We don't know about how he was raised, what made him do what he did, how he -became- the most feared being in the entire universe, and counting King Kais comments, the afterlife as well. He even had a spark of redemption, which he gave up in an attempt to kill Goku, who had traumatized him. But what made him who he was?

That's what makes Freiza my favorite character.

In your opinion, but many others feel differently. You are not superior to anyone else, so we must simply take your words with a grain of salt and allow you to live your life.    
   
Just know, no matter how many times you speak against the show, you will never turn someone else away from it, or discredit it in any fashion.    
   
In other words.... Pic VERY related.

My favorite character. Dudes a ******* badass and has one of the most emotional SSJ transformations.

Its a ******* shame they pretty much dumped him after Cell Saga.
User avatar #82 to #77 - fukbushizgetmunny (06/02/2013) [-]
well you can't have two Trunks' running around now can you?
User avatar #83 to #82 - checkandmate (06/03/2013) [-]
True, but they could still have extended his story in the future timeline. I always secretly hoped for a spinoff

Even so, they could still have had him show up in the Buu saga if they really wanted. Either way, he definitely needed more screen time imo.
User avatar #74 - CXJokerXD (06/01/2013) [-]
Not really...
#75 to #74 - anon (06/01/2013) [-]
Yes really.....

yet still couldnt go ss3...
User avatar #50 - theblastradius (06/01/2013) [-]
I know we all pretend it doesn't exist, but Vegeta wasn't around at all for the Garlic Jr. arc...
#51 to #50 - anon (06/01/2013) [-]
Filler saga.
User avatar #57 to #50 - nigerotte (06/01/2013) [-]
neither was goku, and before every big battle goku isn't even there but do you know who is, vegeta
#26 - niceguydan (05/31/2013) [-]
This is all I can think when I see this guy
User avatar #23 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (05/31/2013) [-]
He participated in every arc? Really? Because IIRC correctly half the mangas happens without vegeta being there.
#24 to #23 - anon (05/31/2013) [-]
I've finished reading the manga again recently, and he does appear in each saga quite a bit. Granted, there are some gaps where he's not present, like after he sacrificed himself and didn't return until later on.
User avatar #25 to #24 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (05/31/2013) [-]
Hes still hte main character.
If anything, krillin is the main character.
User avatar #34 to #25 - osimonmagus (06/01/2013) [-]
How is Krillin the main character when is dead all the time.
User avatar #36 to #34 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (06/01/2013) [-]
he died twice
as much as goku
User avatar #39 to #36 - osimonmagus (06/01/2013) [-]
Dead, knocked out, or crying.
He did three things
1. Threw the Spirit Bomb WHICH MISSED until Gohan bounced it back at Vegeta
2. Almost got killed by Guldo.
3. Babysat Gohan on Planet Namek.

User avatar #40 to #39 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (06/01/2013) [-]
You forgot

1- Being the single most powerfull human.
User avatar #62 to #40 - osimonmagus (06/01/2013) [-]
No, Uub is the single most powerful human. After him it would be Tien.
#44 to #40 - dameush ONLINE (06/01/2013) [-]
Isn't Tien stronger?.. I mean he DID damage cell...kinda
#46 to #44 - agentpurplek (06/01/2013) [-]
congratulations guise.
User avatar #47 to #44 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (06/01/2013) [-]
no hes not.
User avatar #63 to #47 - osimonmagus (06/01/2013) [-]
Yes, he is.
User avatar #64 to #63 - Riukanojutsu ONLINE (06/01/2013) [-]
no
#71 to #23 - anon (06/01/2013) [-]
"IIRC correctly"
