Warning: Content revealed for Super Dragon Ball Heroes episode #50.Dragon Ball Super Hero managed to give Yamcha his biggest win in years, but unfortunately episode #50 ruined it. In Super Dragon Ball Heroes’ Supreme Kai of Time, Yamcha protected a female alien named Vidro, and not only did she instantly fall in love with Yamcha, but their relationship grew to the point she wanted to. marry him. Yamcha has been seen as a joke both inside and outside of Dragon Ball for decades, most notably with his infamous death pose parodies, so seeing him makes a girl like him. himself is great for anyone who feels his character deserves better.
Yamcha’s relationship with Vidro was great, but unfortunately, Super Dragon Ball Heroes completely ruined that relationship. At the end of episode #50, Vidro unexpectedly tells Yamcha that not only will she have to leave until she reaches the marriageable age of the people, but it will also take 1200 years for her to do so, which will kill the relationship. their system. Yamcha still has some interesting moments in anime and other Dragon Ball media in recent years, but his being romantically linked could bring a lot of changes to Dragon Ball, so it’s true. It’s a pity that the anime decided to come back to it.
Yamcha’s relationship can shake the status quo
Basically, the Super Dragon Ball Heroes forcing Yamcha and Vidro to break up is terrible for the character of Yamcha, but at least Yamcha still has some shining moments in recent years. In addition to his relationship with Vidro, Yamcha also had a good place in the anime’s Super Space-Time Tournament, even defeating Chilled near the end, and in Dragon Ball Super’s Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, Yamcha defeated a Moro’s minions and clearly reminds everyone that he is the third strongest human. That doesn’t make his relationship with Vidro any less chance of being missed, but it does soften things by showing that Yamcha hasn’t been without moments of joy in recent years.
Yamcha & Vidro’s relationship is a huge missed opportunity
The biggest problem with Super Dragon Ball Heroes not committing to Yamcha and Vidro’s relationship is that it highlights one of the biggest problems with Dragon Ball: its refusal to break the status quo. Over the decades, Dragon Ball has repeatedly come up with the idea of changing its formula with things like letting Vegeta defeat the main villain or most famously making Gohan the protagonist, but it always falls flat. into the same formula at the end of the story. . It’s an issue that degrades the quality of many storylines and Yamcha and Vidro’s relationship is just the latest plot point being part of it.
As for why Dragon Ball continues to do so, it’s probably because it makes things easier for both creators and audiences. For creators, it gives them a familiar formula to rely on, thereby giving audiences the assurance that nothing too drastic will happen to their favorite characters. them at the end of the day. The problem with that, of course, is that it leaves those who want to see the story and the characters develop in significant ways in a state of disarray, and if Dragon Ball Super Hero‘ refuse to commit Yamcha and Vidro’s relationship is just a sign that that won’t change anytime soon.
