Has he done ANYTHING worthwhile in the series post Raditz? Is Yamcha basically just a cheerleader and senzu bean delivery man?
>>
Did he do anything worthwhile pre-Raditz either?
>>
What did he even DO besides die to show how strong the enemies are?
>>
He was something more than a hero, he was a bro.
>>
>>100314786
he was sort of badass when he first showed up and remained relevant for a while after.
>>
>>100315643
he beat up that invisible guy, but got jobbed by the mummy guy immediately afterwards
>>
>>100314179
He let everyone know where the androids are, made Bulma dump him so that she would get with Vegeta, and in the anime helped weaken Cell in the kamehameha battle, though really only Vegeta did much there..
>>
>>100314179
He had his ex hook up with one of the guys that killed him and several of his allies, does that count?
>>
>>100314786
He was used to hype Roshi and Tenshinhan, but could never really achieve anything. By the time of the 23rd Budokai he was beaten up by Kami, but by then he was basically a joke already and the battle was a joke.

The anime did give him a lot of love though - and continued giving even during Z (Ginyu force, some Cell Jr battle scenes, the scene where he beat a strong Otherworld tournament competitor), it's just that there wasn't as much space to do it, and they stopped modifying canon storylines to give him more importance (In the manga's king piccolo saga, he stays out of fighting the entire time due to a broken leg, while in the anime he recovers and defeats one of Piccolo's demons).

Yamcha has always been on the B-team. A jobber since birth. As far as I know, the only match he's actually won, other then Tenkaichi qualifiers, was against the Invisible Man.

But we love him.
>>
last i checked he spent most of his time being dead.
>>
>>100316136
Lol. Poor bastard.

How did he get the scars?

>>
>>100316479
>Karin scratched his face.

It's never explained, he just shows up at the 23rd Tenkaichi with scars.
>>
He was pretty badass before Evil Piccolo, but these were times where the story concentrated solely on Earth and it's inhabitants mostly, not on the apes that gets x1000 power up after each fight. People seems to forgot he was just a human, which by Android Saga was pretty much over Nappa and maybe over Vegeta level in Saiyan Saga. I suppose that's something?
>>
>>100316775
It's hard to say. After Freeza dies, all battle power readings go out the window, so it's hard to quantify how powerful characters are.

But, since he just came back to Earth after training with Kaio, I'd say he's probably Saiyan arc Son Goku level, without the Kaioken.

Which gets me thinking, how come Tenshinhan and Yamucha never mastered the Kaioken or the Genki-dama? I guess they weren't there long enough to receive the full training.

Poor Yamucha. But then, the same would go for Tenshinhan and Chaozu too. Chaozu even more, since he was dead for a good chunk of the Piccolo Daimao arc.

>reminder that Mr. Satan is the only Earthling who never died during DB
>>
/r/ the sexiest manga dump.
>>
>>100317588
Actually, Goku's only dead for about 100 chapters.
>>
Let's remember, Yamcha used to be a bandit that was so spaghetti he couldn't even talk to a girl. Then he got beat up by a monkey-jock child and decided to step up. He learned martial arts, got really jacked, and finally got over tfw no gf. After fucking Bulma, he decided to utterly dominate the Major League Baseball series on account of having an actual power level compared to literally everyone else. Bulma broke up with him during that stage. He then decided to spend the rest of his life with his shapeshifting best friend Puar (who you know he was fucking on the side after making her shapeshift, c'mon son).

Just because he wasn't a Saiyan and didn't defeat any evil bossmen doesn't mean Yamcha is a fag. Yamcha had an awesome life for a human.

I respect you and your Wolf Fang Fist, bro.
>>
>>100317840
I didnt read the manga (yeah i know) i was talking about DBZ
>>
>>100317901
Even so, Goku & Yamucha's only time spent dead are during the 'Z' portion. If you go by episodes/chapters, Goku's dead less. But if you go by actual time, yeah Goku's far and away the winner (loser?) there.

Ah yes, Dragon Ball's other great jobber.

He fucked Chichi and made Gohan

explain to me why gohan looks like Yamcha like 4 times throughout the series, why Goku is still pure enough to ride the cloud if he had sex with chichi to make gohan, and why Gohan is a bitch who doesnt like fighting for most of his life

Why did Goten come out as an exact copy of Goku, in looksm personalitym naivete and love for fighting, yet Gohan didnt

Yamcha fucked chichi behind Goku's back to get back at him for all the shit he put Yamcha through in Dragonball
>>
>>100318305
Yamucha confessed her love to Chichi before she met Goku, so Chichi subconsciously made Gohan's hairstyle like Yamucha's.

P.S. this is bullshit^^

I would gladly read an NTR doujin of this.

>>100314179
He trained with Kaiosama in 3 months what Goku trained in 1 year.
>>
>>100314786
He beat the invisible man thank's to Krillin painting him red with blood.

>>100318305

>Which gets me thinking, how come Tenshinhan and Yamucha never mastered the Kaioken or the Genki-dama? I guess they weren't there long enough to receive the full training.
Didn't they? They finished the training faster than Goku did.

Maybe they didn't use the Kaio-ken because while dead it didn't make much damage to their bodies but alive it would.
>>
>>100317609
Satan was a pretty cool guy.

I think he's actually a year older than Goku.

This. But implying he wouldn't just bang Puar in her floaty cat thing form is just silly. I bet it's like rubbing your dick on satin.
>>
>>100319677
You forgot that he's the strongest human.
>>
>>100317609
Chaozu is arguably the weakest Z-fighter. Seriously, what has he even done in all of DBZ (including the movies) besides blow himself up and fail to leave so much as a scratch on his opponent? At least Yamcha actually tried to make himself useful.
>>
>>100319677
Was that last push to make Goku Super Saiyajin.
>>
Did Tien actually get his third eye from achieving enlightment or was he just a mutant?
>>
>>100319719
>>100317866
I'm pretty sure Pu-erh is male.
>>
>>100319830
And still a weakling compared to Piccolo and the saiyans.
>>
>>100316990

He was strong enough to beat the shit out of recoomb pretty easily, so by then he was at least 40-50k in rating, plus he had lots of time to train after that, so by the end he was probably over 100k if not more. Which isn't even a blip on the radar, but still, for a human that is fucking unthinkable.
>>
>>100320033
Valid point, but you gotta remember that the Ginyu Force showing up on Kaio's planet was filler.
>>
>>100319928

>Being voiced by only female voice actors, the character is referred to as female numerous times in Saban's edited English version of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, although Toriyama has indicated in interviews that he had considered Puar male while writing the manga.[5] In the Japanese versions, Puar refers to himself/herself as boku and is sometimes referred to as Puar-kun, hinting male characteristics. Despite indications of masculinity, referring to Bat-Puar, Bulma tells Oolong to "Go help her!" in the English dub of "The Penalty is Pinball" and when Puar faints in the English dub of "The Power of Nappa", Roshi reassures Oolong by saying "She'll be okay." Puar is also referred to as female on FUNimation Entertainment's Dragon Ball website.

>>100319962
Piccolo needed more love. They should have had him absorb all the namakeiaglakgs from another dimension or something to at least get him up to SS2 level.
>>
>>100320169
Vegeta should have stayed dead and Piccolo should have continued being Goku's rival.
>>
>>100320168
Goddamn, that just makes me think about how atrocious the dub scripts for DB and DBZ are, especially those early edited episodes.
>>
>>100320237
Chichi should have died and Piccolo should have adopted Gohan or something. He got so much better as a character after just a year being raised by Piccolo - imagine if he had grown up with him.

He should have also kept the cape. Looked badass.
>>
>>100320237
But by then he had already become an uncle to Gohan, and he and Goku were well on the way to becoming bros.

When you're a shapeshifter, it doesn't matter what your base is. Also you are implying that my point about rubbing your cock on satin is any less viable because there's a peen hidden somewhere in there.

It's not a hologram, it's a technique used to create an artificial moon on planets that have no moon. And it's canon.

>>100320982
Drummond nailed it, his performance was pretty close to how Horikawa played it actually. High and mighty, like an elite would be, but then when he lost his shit, he LOST IT.

Sabat I think is a bit too calm, and way too raspy. Definitely better in Kai though.
>>
>>100321011
Wow, having just watched that scene in the original Z in Japanese, I'm again astounded by how accurate the Kai dub is.

No one mattered in the long run except for the saiyans. Not even piccolo


"hurr hurr everytime we almost die we power up by 1000 times"

Yamcha was one of the first Z fighters introduced so naturally, he was one of the first to lose relevance

>>100320169
I was okay with what was done with him in the Buu Saga. Better than GT, which seemed to forget he existed until they decided to just kill him off and THEN make use of him.

An actual hologram of the moon was projected from Kakarot's spaceship. It was one of the filler eps after Raditz was defeated and before Nappa and Vegeta arrive on Earth.

Krilin was vastly more powerful than any saiyan alive before Goku, sans for the Legendary Super Saiyan from 1,000 years back. Namek Saga Krillin, with a power level of 75,000 would have beaten the shit out of Bardock and King Vegeta (both 10,000). He could've toyed with Vegeta when he was on Earth too (power level 18,000), and he was supposed to be some sort of impossible saiyan prodigy. He's also far, far stronger than every Namekian other than Piccolo and he ended up becoming one of the most powerful beings in the universe (Namek Saga power level above most in the Ginyu Force). Cutting off Frieza's tail alone means that he probably did more damage to the guy than anyone before him. Guy could take out armies when he was 14, and he was already the most powerful human ever to exist before hitting 16. On top of that, he's also the only human to end up happily married, with a hot wife.

That's exactly what that means. Frieza nearly shit himself when that happened. If him I would have killed Krillin fucking immediately afterward because he was by far the largest threat.

Krillen somehow impregnated a robot. Thats some next level shit.

Just imagine if it was Yamcha's son, he would get lost in time and space and Goku would died in the present timeline.
>Krillin
He died more than Yamcha. 1st with that Piccolo minion, 2nd Freeza, 3rd Buu and 4th Super 17 if Gt matters to this. Yamcha died against a Saibaman for being cocky as a damn saiyan and Buu while trying to save the ladies.

He originally intended, after the freeza saga, for this to be revealed. This was planned so he could end the series where he wanted to, on his terms, but the publishers weren't having any spacetime shenanigans and told him to keep going till it wasn't making money.
