Most of Dragon ball fans understandably relate Dragon Ball Z with that statement Goku arrives and easily defeats the extremely powerful villain that his friends were unable to defeat for many episodes. However, despite the criticism aimed at Dragon Ball Z, the massive shounen franchise has had this problem from the beginning.
One of the most iconic anime characters of all time, Goku’s insane strength and tendency to always overcome adversity possess the ability to naturally shorten the storyline. Arcs only last as long as they last because Goku is always preoccupied in some way when the villains are wreaking havoc.
Goku saved the world from the beginning
Before chapter 77 of Dragon Ball, Akira Toriyama started using the infamous quote. While searching for the Dragon Balls while simultaneously on the run from General Blue of the Red Ribbon Army, Goku is separated from Krillin and Bulma when the Saiyan chooses to fight a robot pirate while his companions Continue searching for the Dragon Balls. After seeing Goku win, Blue manages to trick the Saiyan into going the wrong way, causing him to become entangled with an octopus. Meanwhile, Blue takes advantage of this to fight and defeat Krillin. Only after Goku arrived was he able to save the world.
The similarities don’t end there. Aside from Goku’s friends being defeated by a stronger opponent while Goku was dealing with other issues, Goku was finally more than enough to match Blue while Krillin was in a position where Dragon Ball Z fans are used to seeing it. As Goku fiercely confronts General Blue, Krillin lies on the ground and can barely say Goku’s name. This is basically what happens in every DBZ battle. The only thing missing is that Goku doesn’t have or know about Senzu Beans yet, so he can’t do the moves like he did in DBZ, where he fed these beans to his injured friends first. his future opponents. is angry because of his stubbornness.
Krillin cannot break through in Dragon Ball
While not as popular as DBZ, Dragon Ball delivered many things that its much more successful spin-off series couldn’t and suffered as a result. Krillin, along with other supporting characters like Yamcha, who once helped Goku defeat a silly villain, are often portrayed as actually very capable fighters. Although Krillin has never been as strong Goku – from the very beginning of Dragon Ball, bald people have participated in important events and battles.
This gets worse when he later takes on the role of a ragdoll that gets dumped in DBZ and even in Dragon Ball Super. However, the irony is that this scene in Dragon Ball chapter 77 proves that Toriyama did more than just set the stage for Krillin’s embarrassing downfall in Dragon Ball. Krillin was going through the motions – he was just doing them more often in the DBZ than in Dragon ball.
