>be main characters brother
>die after 2 episodes and never mentioned again

Why did Toriyama hate Raditz so much?
>>
>>133647604
Raditz was shit tier desu. And even if he'd managed to survive he mostly be seen as a useless character like Gohan,
>>
>>133647604
Because he is the power equivalent of 1 raditz. He can literally grow raditzes
>>
>>133647604
>Brother becomes a GOD
>You are being beaten up by literally everything.
>>
>>133647604
Raditz is the brendan fraser of DBZ villains
>>
>>133647604
Could Hercule have beaten Raditz or at least put up something of a fight?
>>
>>133647604
Because at this point Vegeta might as well be Goku's brother
>>
>>133647604
Because super sayain 3 raditz would have been a fucking nightmare to design
>>
Toriyama probably just forgot about him.
>>
>>133650711
Yeah, that sounds about right.
>>
He does get quick mentions a few times though.
>>
>>133648974
No.
>>
So much hair but still going bald
>>
>>133647604
why do you want dragon ball z to be cliche and trite
>>
>>133648974
Couldn't have put up a fight, i'm sure he could do damage with his tactics. If that fat guy cut Vegeta and Vegeta's tail, Hercule can find some flaws in Raditz

people shit on raditz and make fun of him.
but don't forget that when he first apeared that no one on earth could beat him.
even goku and picollo working together got lucky and barely beat him.

raditz could have grown as a character, probaly better then vegeta

and now in Dragon Ball Super/RoF, Roshi is roasting goons that are at least Raditz level
Toriyama pls

The almost surreal level of power creep in DBZ renders any argument of a characters worth by "they used to be the strongest" worthless. It's like if in Star Wars by episode 6 individual rebel solders were blowing up Death Stars with their blaster pistols by the thousands in throwaway action scenes while Luke faces off against some new imperial machine that could blow up the whole multiverse.
>>
>>133652386
Roshi has always had a hidden power level that was never recorded. As a human he can just hide it really good. Remember how he took a hit from Brolly while powering up and survived?
>>
>>133652949
Frieza is nearly 7000 times stronger than Vegeta during his main villain stint. That's fucked up.

>>133653789
You know there's a problem with power creep in a series when you have to represent power levels on a log scale.
>>
>>133654011
>That tangle during the Androids Saga
Jesus fuck, what a mess.
>>
>>133654011
But that chart is wrong. The last official battle power was Super Saiyan Goku (on Namek) with 150 million. This chart is saying he was around 10 million.
>>
>>133654062
but anon that was the peak of DBZ, with lots of fighters all in close proximity to each other in power level
>>
>>133648974
no, but Yajirobē would have whupped him good and lashed him with his own tail.
>>
>>133652386

so do people think its impossible for an immortal to keep training? are we really this stupid?
>>
>>133654011
Am I the only one who lost interest after the Freiza saga?
>>
>>133654269
if we could solidify the things you lost interest in and burn it as a fuel we could power everything on planet earth for eternity.
>>
>>133654269
I lost interest during the Frieza saga and picked it up again after. Namek as a setting was boring as all hell.
>>
>>133654383
It's literally the only show I never finished, son.

>>133654420
I tried to pick it back up in the Android Saga because the RR callback sounded fun, but the power level crap is just too ridiculous past a certain point.
>>
>>133654269
You'd be surprised how many people found all of Namek to be an uninteresting shlog. It ended up being around 50 episodes if I remember correctly.

Why does Tarble even exist?
>>
He's mentioned several times as something to compare powerlevels to. like Sabermen being worth one Radditz.
>>
>>133654635
I actually thought them adding Tarble was nice, and enjoyed Son Goku And Friends Return a lot more than parts of BOG and pretty much all of Resurrection F.

It's a shame Super has pretty much written it completely out of canon, it could've made for a nice little warm-up episode or two before Beerus reached Earth
>>
>>133647604
What would Super Saiyan Raditz look like?
>>
>>133651003
>there are still people who like DBZ but haven't seen Dragon Ball
>fat guy

Fucking really? Yajirobe fought equally with Goku, who almost won against Tien, the strongest man in the world, when he was introduced and killed one of Piccolo's henchmen. Hercule almost died from a bullet. He's weaker than episode 1 Goku, who acted like he hit his head on a table after getting shot in the face, and 13 year old Krillin.
>>
>>133654635
To shit more on Raditz. Vegeta's brother managed to get laid unlike Raditz.
