Is there any shonen anime in which the characters, other than the protagonist and his rival, aren't turned into complete sandbags after some time?

they partially fixed it with Vegeta, but agreed that's a worst fucking cliche
>>
>>137404380
Why does no one ever remember that Gohan is a character too?
>>
>>137404380
Did Vegeta ever do anything other than getting his ass kicked to show how powerful the villain is, and then have Goku come and save the day?
>>
>>137404183
Yeah i mean, dragonball is the mother of all character degeneration. It's one thing that Krillin, Yamcha and Chaotzu become obsolete but characters like Tien and Piccolo, even Gotenks and now in super, Gohan, the character that surpassed even Vegito is weaker than Piccolo now. Vegeta had half a year training with a literal God ahead of Goku, but Goku still surpasses him again as they train together. If you aren't Goku, you're worth shit.
In other anime the supporting characters have some degree of importance but in Dragonball they're nothing. You can literally write Krillin, Tien, Yamcha, Yajirobe, Piccolo, Goten, Gohan, Trunks, Boo and Chaotzu out of the story at this point and nothing was lost.
>>
>>137404494
Every time Vegeta becomes stronger than Goku, Goku gains some sort of boost and leaves him behind again by a mile
>>
>>137404494
Well Buu was too strong for both of them. Also in Super he not only squeezed some reaction out of Beerus (Goku never managed to do that without the God transformation), humiliated Frieza (he was already weakened, agreed) and is obviously considered every bit Goku's equal by Whis. I think the tendency is reversing.

You posted one anon.

>>137404675
There are people that unironically say Fukkatsu no F is bad.
Holy fuck that scene.
>>
>>137404644
>Vegito has to go super saiyan to keep it up with super buu
>gohan stays in his normal form and almost kills him
>gohan somehow shouldn't be surpassing vegito
>>
>>137404777
Nice bait anon, but as there's a tiny chance you're really retarded I'll remind you that Vegetto beat the crap out of Buu with Gohan absorbed, so Super Buu + Gohan.
>>
>>137404644
When Goku came to Whis and Vegeta to train with them, Vegeta had double the amount of weight Goku had to carry because he had HALF A YEAR training ahead if Goku, so he was MUCH stronger than Goku at this point. Yet when Frieza came, it was Goku again to whoop his ass. Goku catched up to Vegeta even though being a low class warrior. They had the same training this time, yet Goku still surpassed Vegeta again. Fuck this
>>
>>137404879
>being this retarded
Mystic Gohan is an entity in the universe, but too dumb to train. He's far superior than both Goku and Vegeta.
>>
>>137404952
Arguably, if Vegeta was the first to fight, he would've killed Frieza before he'd even use his new form.
>>
>>137404952
>Goku catched up to Vegeta even though being a low class warrior.
Go read Naruto faggot.
>>
>>137404952
>Yet when Frieza came, it was Goku again to whoop his ass. Goku catched up to Vegeta even though being a low class warrior.
Actually it was just that Goku got to go first.
>>
>>137405011
Goku would've been able to do the same if he wasn't so obsessed with playing around with his opponents. Vegeta on the other hand would've enjoyed torturing Frieza way too much so the outcome would be the same regardless.
>>
>>137404494
Are you aware that Dragon Ball is a manga and not just a series of movies?
>>
>>137404259
No jobbing in HxH
>>
>>137405077
As always. Yes.
>>
>>137405090
Not really, the transformation required time and concentration and beating the crap out of somebody or just outright torturing him can't help with that.
>>
I'm actually enjoying Goku and Vegita being even for the first time. And Gohan's getting back in shape too.
>>
>>137404259
HxH is totally accurate though. Gon is frequently outclassed by his enemies and other hunters. He and Killua have loads of potential but they're still relatively small time by their universe's standards.
>>
>>137405122
So then tell me what Vegeta did accomplish after the saiyan arc.

>killed cui
>cornered frieza but got surpassed easily after a transformation
>got killed in the process
>lost to the androids
>let cell absorb 18 on purpose
>almost died fighting cell
>had to resort to literal magic to catch up to goku, but goku secretly is on a whole new level regardless
>blew himself up to kill buu, with no success
>the only time he managed to damage buu was when fused with goku
>he literally is the punching bag for buu while goku saves the world
>>
>>137405411
Nice cherry picking bruh

>>137404749
dude, that's nothing compared with the original 'glacial wave' in first db movie.
>>
>>137405555
Quads confirm you are wrong.
>>
>>137405488
Dude. The only time in the anime, after the saiyan arc, when Vegeta outclassed Goku, was in the Cell arc, and he fucked up. And Trunks was almost as strong as Vegeta here mind you.
>>
>>137405645
He killed Puipui and 19 though.
>>
>>137403496
Did anyone like Bulma and Vegeta. I don't remember anyone caring.
>>
>ITT: casuals not aware of Zenkai
>>
>>137405704
I thought the general consensus was it's out of nowhere and just to give Vegeta a kid.
>>
>>137405728
Does that come after Bankai?
>>
>>137405756
They literally answered that in super.
The reason Goku and Vegeta chose Bulma and Chichi was because they're so strong willed. They literally are like saiyan women, just weaker.
>>
>>137405782
Yes, and after that comes shichibukai.

One Piece. I'd say Luffy isn't anywhere near the top ten strongest characters we've been shown fighting so far.
>>
>>137403496
Gintama

>>137409437
But lately everyone in the main crew besides Luffy and Zoro have been shit and irrelevant.

Sanji is relevant as fuck now

>Why is the MC getting all the glory?

Maybe because he is the MC?

I remember all the recurring fighters of Yu Yu Hakusho staying competent warriors for the whole show with the exception of Kuwabara, who was still top dog but missed the demon world tournament for reasons I forgot, maybe because he wasn't a demon
