What's the point of creating characters like Lee or Krillin?

Are they supposed to be funny or are they created to symbolize the fact that strong willpower is nothing compared to talent and no matter how hard you work you can't reach your goals or what do you think?

Anyway I like them so if you know any series with a character like them please let me know!

@DBZ_universe: I never said Krillin isn't great I just meant he has stronger willpower and works harder than Goku but he can't surpass him (yeah Yamcha is also a good example)

@Destinyheroknight: It might be true...

@8000not9000: Oh... ok then, yeah Kuririn has strong will... even tho he is not as powerful as the others.

Well if you read the little short piece written by Toriyama on the manga. He says the reason why he created Krillin. I can't recall it. But it was along the lines of Goku being a bland character in terms of personality.

If Kuririn and his powers were even close to Saiyan powers then all of the DBZ series and characters would lose that outter space ''over powered-ness'' and they would be brought down to ''Puny Earthlings'' as Vegeta said... And if you see the entire Z Warrior group, you'd see that Kuririn is pretty powerfull as an earthling himself so his effort isn't all that useless, he's practically the strongest human being there is... beside Chi-Chi of course, even Goku fears her xD

The thing is, you compare him to Alien races, which essentially outpower humans, and he can still throw a good fight with them.

Yeah. Krillin wasn't that bad. He's the only guy who was with Goku from the beginning and stayed until the end and fought in EVERY arc with him. He at least retained some usefulness up until the late Cell saga. Whoever said Yamcha was a bit more spot on. He was there even before Krillin but lost all usefulness by the start of Z and was a couch potato for 2 of the 3 major z arcs. And Tien wasn't that bad at all. He was above Krillin up until the end. Aside from Goku, only Vegeta and Piccolo surpassed him of the z warriors, and both of them didn't ally themselves until early Z.

I liked Yamcha at the beginning of DB. I thought he was okay. I liked Oolong, Yamcha, Bulma and Goku's adventure.

@DBZ_universe: Because he's arrogant and I find him to be annoying. Strength has nothing to do with how good a character is.

I liked Tien during his battle with Goku in DB. When he let Goku hit him to even the fight out. I respected that.

Rock Lee was awesome, especially during the first part. He was probably my favourite character, after Itachi ofc.

Bit of a shame that part 2 just became the Naruto show and everyone else became useless.
