SENZU BEAN!!
>>
Why the fuck did they only keep a pouch worth? Or why didn't each fighter have their own pouch of senzu beans? Korin obviously has an endless supply, so whaddafuck?
>>
>>100755445
I think they took a while to grow or something.
>>
Without the beans they would've been dead a long time ago
>>
>>100755497
yea they took a long time to grow and it was basically just that tiny patch of dirt korin had up in the clouds. Yajirobi basically ate 90% of the supply at any given time as well.
>>
>not taking a bag of uncooked lima beans to school
>>
Did you know?

Undercooked chili beans can result in diarrhea so rancid, a fly will hesitate before suiciding into the room.
>>
Probably the worst plot contrivance of the series. Even worse than the hyperbolic time chamber.
>>
>>100755648
You tried eating them while playing DBZ as a kid, didn't you?
>>
Goku is so fucked up.
>>
The only reasonable excuse I can think for this bullshit is that at the later points of the series the power levels were so high and the attacks so strong that a theoretical stash of beans would basically get destroyed by a stray punch/kick or vaporized by ki.
>>
>>100755756
What? They say multiple times that they take a while to grow.

Why can't people on /a/ understand Dragonball of all things?

They go from "taking a while to grow" to becoming virtually nonexistent despite the fact they would be completely brokenly OP at virtually every point in the series.

Why don't they wish for more?

>>100755648
this is why I don't eat chili beans or chili in general

Why didn't they just get the eagles to fly them more sensu beans

The Fruits of Might were way cooler than Senzu Beans.

>>100755889
No they don't. Krillin had enough to give to everyone at the cell games.

Just stop.

Well maybe if Yajirobe didn't the giant fucking jar that Korin had of them we wouldn't have this problem.

>>
>>100755819
If you actually read/watched Dragonball you would know that despite how long they take to grow, Korin had a fucking truckload of the things. The only reasonable explanation for their disappearance is Yajirobe eating them all and frankly that's just as bullshit as pretending they never existed.
>>
>>100756257

Get serious, everyone knows that never works. It's like the first genie rule.

Though there's no rule against wishing for more genies.
>>
>>100756260
I don't see how Yajirobe eating them all isn't a perfectly logical explanation. I mean this is a gag manga.
>>
>>100756257
Because they didn't need to, collecting the dragon balls became trivially easy as the series went on.

Why they didn't wish for an infinite supply of senzus is another question entirely, though.
>>
>>100755445

In Dragon Ball, Korin said it takes hundreds of years to grow a senzu bean.
>>
>>100756342

Because the first time he did it, it caused him to become violently ill, because you're only supposed to eat 1 bean a week. The beans kinda go apeshit on your body if you go past that.

>>100756522

except 90% of the cast got their revives used up by the end of the Freeza saga. And by that point we rarely saw senzu beans outside of the Cell Games.
>>
>>100756304

What if you made a wish on your last wish that the genie had no memory of your first two wishes, would that work?
>>
Why didn't Goku just eat a Senzu Bean to cure his heart disease?

Why didn't they just de-stone Vegeta with a Senzu Bean?

What happened to the healing magic Krillin used on Vegeta in Namek?

The giant fucking jar.

Namekian Dragon Balls don't have revive limits. The only reason why Goku stayed dead is because he wanted to.

He does actually, it just makes the disease worse

>Why didn't they just de-stone Vegeta with a Senzu Bean?

Vegeta wasn't literally stone, he was already dead. Once your ki is gone, you can't be revived.

>What happened to the healing magic Krillin used on Vegeta in Namek?

Filler, and even then, I'm not sure that happened

Oh right, I forgot about him.

Why didn't the saiyans power up through self-mutilation rather than prolonged training arcs?
>>
>>100757134
That would make for a pretty grim kids series.
>>
>>100756891
> the most brilliant scientists that have ever existed

That's wrong. Nappa, Vegeta, and Freeza call earth a "back water planet" and their technology is far more advanced than the stuff on earth.

>>100757134
>>100757207

They can't. Vegeta specifically mentions this when he asks Krillin to blast him.
>>
>>100757263
And that's why Dr Gero created things far more powerful than Frieza in a cave.
>>
>>100756937
Dende was the healer you chucklefuck.
>>
>>100757319
he used Freeza's data, but that's very true.
>>
>>100757263
So Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta could have just sat in the time chamber together taking turns nearly killing one another?
>>
>>100757263
Well not necessarily self-mutilation, but instead of throwing him out into the wild Goku could have had Piccolo raise Gohan by repeatedly impaling his stomach and force-feeding him the same senzu bean.
>>
>>100757506
Reminds me of those old dwarf fortress threads about throwing dwarven babies into a pit filled with feral animals so that they would be competent fighters by the time they become adults.
>>
>>100757409
Doing that in the time chamber wouldn't be wise but yes.

Although, seeing as how it didn't help much in the long run during the android arc (Vegeta, Trunks, Goku all had near death experiences and still had to train), I think the increase stopped making much difference.

>>100757506
They knew nothing about Saiyans at that point, Piccolo was still evil and I'm sure a 5 year old would go for that and not just beat the shit out of Piccolo for trying it.
>>
>>100757409
Congratulations, you discovered one of dragonball's plotholes, there aren't many, you should be proud.

You can't use time travel wrong, nobody ever time traveled, you can make up whatever you want and nobody can tell for sure that wouldn't happen in real life

Also, DBZ is full of holes, there are like three of four pointed out just ITT.

Hell, why didn't Vegeta do it once he was chilling on Earth?

>>100758007
Saiyans, for the most part, don't like hand-outs.

That seems weird when Vegeta's entire raison d'etre until post-Frieza was getting a hand-out.

My point is that Toriyama actually goes back and explains a lot of shit.

They don't like cheating. Even when Vegeta wanted to be Immortal he wanted to eventually wear Freeza down.

That's how stories are written. You have some concepts, ideas, goals, then you make it up and patch the holes as you go.

It's not really impressive, it's just how it works. Also Dragon Ball is full of holes, but luckily they're unimportant and totally unrelated to the message.

All of Dragonball becomes easier when you realize everything runs on jrpg rules. Senzu's are just max health potions. Lighten up.

>>100758007
The dragon could not grant a wish like that. It could only replenish someones energy to it's original state, i.e. Restoring Goku's energy so that he could give the Spirit Bomb the final push onto Kid Buu.

It's important to note that most if not all of the dragon ball rules are just introduced within the same chapter that they become a "problem " in. Toriyama's way of creating a bit of drama on the fly. "Oh no! The dragon can't bring back to life someone who died of natural causes" comes to mind
>>
>>100755445
Korin did not have an endless supply. He had a big bucket of them when they were introduced but Yajirobe at them all, and so they became scarce and he could only manage to sprout a few at a time.

Not so fast

The rules when the Hyperbolic Time Chamber is introduced are that only two people could go in at once, and they could only spend 2 days(2 RoSaT years) or the door would disappear and they would become trapped forever.

Of course, just as soon as you explain away one potential plothole in Dragon Ball, another grows in it's place.
