Just wondering, because obviously as Z progressed, everyone but the Saiyans became irrelevant. It saddens me because my favorite characters are some of the weaker Z fighters, and I don't want them to get fazed out of Super.

Do you think the Z fighters will stay relevant as DBS progresses?

I'm a bit curious about this myself, especially given how Kuririn, Tenshinhan, and even Kame'senin seem to have a greater role in Fukkatsu no F.


"I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

Krillin could also use a upgrade.

I don't actually care about how strong the characters are. I don't really care if they're relevant in terms of fighting. On the contrary, I'd like to see the series focus more on comedy and keep non-combatant characters relevant.

I want Piccolo to be strong again..  :-\

You know, I used to be bent out of shape over this too, but in hindsight, I've realized that it wasn't a bad thing. I like that Piccolo mellowed out over the years and I enjoyed him being a straight man in the Boo arc's comedy routine. Honestly, the thing I want the most out of Piccolo is some father-granddaughter bonding time between him and Pan, since it's obvious Goku won't care about her. Pan in Piccolo's outfit? Please?

I do want to see other characters develop too! Even Gohan was kindda useless after being the hero in the Cell saga...

He was doing what he wanted to do in life you can't attack Gohan for that.Maybe Chi-Chi but not Gohan.

That's the reason I love the Androids Saga/Cell Saga because I felt everyone was involved. All the Z fighters had a good role in the plot. It was also the first and only time someone other than Goku killed or defeated the main villian.

Saiyan Saga had everyone involved but the saga itself felt kinda short.

Frieza Saga had half the main fighters dead. Piccolo, Tien, Chaozu, and Yamcha were dead, so all they did was train with King Kai and eventually fight the Ginyu Force later in the saga. It did have its epic moments though.

Buu Saga had the others involved, but it was too focused on power ups and fusions. This made the power up aspect of the Buu Saga seem pretty redundant. Goten and Trunks going Super Saiyan so young made Super Saiyan 1 seem easy to come by. Many of the Z fighters were powerless against the antagonist, Buu. Even Piccolo was outclassed in the Buu Saga. The only thing he did was train Goten and Trunks do fusion. The saiyans were the only ones who could commit any severe damage to the enemy.

I hope everyone has a role in the series, although I do have a feeling Toriyama is going to do just that with Dragon Ball Super. He has grown in his profession, so maybe he can make Super have a better plot for the Z fighters as a whole than Z. That's excluding the nostalgia of Z of course.

I hope this too. Consider most of Dragon Ball was improvised while DBS must've been planned from a long time ago. I have high expectations of it.

I know he acomplished his dreams and everything. But I wanted him to be the hero damn it!

Yeah I like that he's been a father or grandfather towards the younger characters, but I just want to see Piccolo kick some popo again. He was like the Batman of Dragon Ball.  :'(

I wouldn't say he was the Batman of Dragon Ball and I think the only thing they have in common is having a sidekick and being the "smart guy" on the team. There aren't really any cape characters I can think of who remind me of the guy. He's way too shounen, especially in terms of his redemption arc and everything.
But if he was a comic book character, he'd get a lot of flack for his hilariously convoluted background.

Yeah, but I just feel like if anyone on Dragon Ball was Batman it would be him. I think it's because he usually appears out of nowhere in the movies. Piccolo's deep voice also helped.

With the new blue-hair-trans, Goku and Vegeta are on a even further power level. In my opinion Akira should implement a boost for the other chars. I mean, if Piccolo could do that fusion with Nail and Kami, maybe add some other kind of trans. Same with Krillin and co., as Master Roshi can bulge his muscles to that stage he show in DragonBall and the new movie too, then he could add a feature for humans and not let them the way they are just because of their race. I mean they managed to get an extra strength + be able to sense and control aura. Seeing them scared, useless, weak honestly bored me.

Or alternatively, they don't need to be anywhere near that level of strength. Just hand the characters evenly matched fights against "mini-boss" type characters, like what the Ginyus were to Freeza. (in contrast to the mooks from FnF) They don't need to keep up strength wise to stay relevant, even if it's something the original series ignores.
