I LOVE the rag-tag look of this squad. We have a pink monster-looking fighter, a smaller old man, an alien, and then kind of typical shonen looking characters but it's some nice diversity

Reminds me a lot of why I like the main cast in HXH's Chimera Ant arc so much (spoilers for that arc);




They aren't all model-looking people like the cast of characters in a Bleach arc for example

This is why he has wacky hair in end of z and GT. I'll almost take a new hair design instead of a timeskip. Almost

Roshi was not stated to have gotten stronger. Only that he was trying since he was Buff Roshi, the same Roshi that blew up the moon.

Unless Roshi did some major grinding, he's the weakest ki user on the planet.

Tien (and Krillin) deserves to be able to have fights with the supporting villains of any given arc. Fans love Tien. He did some impressive things in Z and the only thing holding him back from doing cooler things now and making his many fans happy is just for AT to include more fodder villains in arcs and let the non-Saiyans just be a bit stronger. It isn't that much to ask.

i suppose, but we haven't seen anything out of chiaotzu since the siayan saga

we know for a fact that roshi is in good enough shape to take on freeza's men and win

I should point out that in the last character poll, Dragon Ball Forever, Tien only ranked as 16. Which isn't too bad since he actually beat Bulma and Videl. Yamcha beat Tien by ranking 15.

He also took out second-rank fodder who might be weaker than Raditz given Freeza and Sorbet's statement. Not that impressive since he isn't fighting the Frieza Force at its peak.

Honestly Tien has been awesome from the very beginning in DB. He's got some unique techniques too. I'm most pumped to see what him and Roshi are going to do

Interesting Yamcha beat him. Was this just a poll that was conducted in Japan like the polls Weekly Shonen Jumps conducts? Looking at forums online, I feel Tien gets more love than any non-Saiyan Z-fighter besides Piccolo

Agreed. I'm more partial to Yamcha when it comes to the human Z Fighters but I love Tien and have nothing but respect for him

It was in a guide/book called Dragon Ball Forever that came out in 2004. There were only two Shonen Jump polls for Dragon Ball, one for the Cell Saga and one for the Buu Saga that only had the top five. In those, Gohan beat Goku as the number one character for the Cell Saga, but dropped out of the top five in the Buu Saga. Gotenks was number 4 in the Buu Saga poll.

Most online polls tend to be western linear. For example, Vegeta beats Goku in many online polls, while Goku trumps Vegeta by a country mile in the Japanese polls. Or like Cell who is ranked as one of the best villains in online polls is only a 14 in the Dragon Ball Forever poll.

The Buu Saga shounen jump poll actually does have rankings beyond the top 5. They're just text only rather than illustrations.

Can I jumpstart into this arc? I jumped ship at the end of the really crappy adaptation of BoG, and I heard the RoF arc was also bad in adapting. I've actually read the synopsis of black future and Champa, and even watched the fights in the Champa arc. Champa really sucks but the matches are great especially the assassin guy, though sucks that it all boiled down to Vegeta. Goku Black, Rose Form, and Zamasu however had a crappy resolution from what I read.

Q: Is this an okay place to jump in?
A: This arc pulls heavily from the past two arcs in both concepts and characters, so starting here would likely result in some confusion.

If you know the characters you'll probably be alright, but I'd suggest watching the Future Trunks arc, you mileage may vary, many people did enjoy how it ended and even if you end up not like how it ends you might still enjoy the journey.

I do think I remember seeing it, but I only found the top five when I searched. Funny seeing Yamcha above Krillin here. And Frieza still hanging around despite being dead for several years.
