Who agrees that the following characters aren't remembered in the series after the saiyan, Namek, and Frieza Sagas respectively (Not counting GT)?

  • Saibamen
  • Cui
  • Zarbon
  • Dodoria

I think because the progression of power was so rapid, we lost a lot of characters that could have been used a few more times.

Died when Roshi destroyed the moon.

Considering all of those characters either died like cowards or didn't speak what did you expect? Still, this happens all the time when a writer doesn't feel like writing about a character anymore. Another good example for Dragonball would be Arale. We know she's still there just Toriyama doesn't feel like writing about her anymore.

@Supreme Marvel: to be fair Pilaf was in the BOG movie.

@flashback180: To be more fair, he was in none of the 291 episodes of DBZ (minus flashbacks).

Dog? Oh, I thought fox. Launch was forgotten (lady with Roshi, forget how to spell her name). Then there's oopa.

Launch, WHY!?

Launch was probably killed by Chiaotzu for getting close to Tien.

I love Baba's fighters, Monster Carrot was awesome, I wish they'd done more with Pikkon, and I wish Roshi hadn't ended up little more than occasional comedy relief in everything except World's Strongest in DBZ (which I suppose isn't even canon) but I think the one human that could've kept up with the Saiyans to some extent (assuming he is human) and grew almost as rapidly as them without any Zenkai Boost until they decided to forget him was Tien. He's shown now and then and has a herioc, yet pathetic power-wise comparatively, moment against Cell. Besides that, he's pretty much no there after the Saiyan saga.

So... no one has anything to say about the characters I mentioned?

@SaiyanPrinceVegetaII:

All the characters that you mentioned were killed...so why would they make an another appearance ?

Post by SaiyanPrinceVegetaII (45 posts) See mini bio Level 8

@flashback180:Not just appearance, but mention too. They didn't even appear in flashbacks, whereas frieza and cell did, in flashbacks, even though they were both dead and have been mentioned loads of other times. The ginyu force was shown in the buu saga watching goku vs kid buu, along with other villians (among whom the aforementioned ones do not appear).

@flashback180: yeah, she is in the manga for a few chapters actually.

And had her own series. And probably could have killed several DBZ villains.

@SaiyanPrinceVegetaII:

Well Toriyama tends to forget about his older characters some times.

And wasn't the entire thing a filler ?, I don't remember seeing Gynue force in the manga after they were killed. I don't think they even showed anyone in hell in buu saga. The only thing i can remember is King Yama cheering Goku when shooting the sprite bomb.

.

Besides characters like Cui were minor characters who was weaker than Vegeta ,IMO Cui is equal to wolf that fought yamcha in DB.

.

Saibamen are a entire another story they were shown as a race so they didn't have individual names with personalities . But if you count in the non canon fillers they have made multiple appearance .
