    I decided to use this discussion thread to have everyone pick one Dragonball character to be. Just say name and you will be addressed as such.
    I pick Goku!

    Master Roshi. Easily the funniest character.

    In the Dragon Universe, I'd have to chalk it down to Mirai (Future) Trunks. I liked that he had the capacity to be raw and rougher than Son Goku (an ironic characterization for Son Goku, considering the pause he was not given in killing villains in early Dragonball), yet not self-indulgent and without displaying the capacity to have caring sentiments towards others as his father did (Vegeta, who I think bordered on brilliant at first but thereafter degenerated into a banal and tired formula of a character). Son Gohan is also an excellent character in my eyes, because in his character beats he's not laickadaiscal like his father (arguably more mature) yet has deep wont to protect those closest to him (combating off the tyrants of the universe), and at only the age of 5-10 at that before giving occurrence to being a "scholar". I also feel Piccolo is an underrated character, along with a few others that come to bear.

    But I enjoy the alternate timeline/emotional complex Mirai Trunks added to the Dragon Universe in both the anime and original manga, so he'd get my pick. His present self is the blight that sullies him in my assertions.

    Dude, I just love your analysis. It's fukin brilliant. I agree with you about the characters of Vegeta and Piccolo. The problem that I felt is that both essentially had the same background of being villians but were redeemed as the series progressed. Toriyama couldn't have them both come out the same way so he had to alter it a bit. I think he did a good job with piccolo's character but piccolo was done a disservice in the buu saga. In terms of Vegeta, I thought it became kinda cliche toward the end and I personally wouldn't have cared if he had stayed dead after frieza killed him. That death scene was brilliant and everything came full circle for him. Oh well, and Mirai Trunks is a great pick. He is probably the most unique character introduced into the series.

    Awww, thanks so much. ^.^

    His (Vegeta's) death scene was indeed most poignant, encircling, and finality-bringing in undertones. I just don't care for how he became all about "beating Goku", even 10 years later. And that he had to go out of his way, of his own volition, to equal Goku by pulsating veins and an uncorking of power at Bobbidi's behest was rather lame in my eyes (the "Majin" moniker, bounded into his head). I rather think he was weaker than stronger for it, because his newfound power obviously did not rectify his newly found emotions and attachments. It was just fear Vegeta was conforming with, which never lasts by comparison to that which is taken well to, I think. And Vegeta always did APPRECIATE Goku anyway, even if he didn't openly respect him (nor would Vegeta openly concede to that). I agree otherwise. :)

    Ack, which one is Mirai Trunks again? (don't remember) Little Trunks or big Trunks?

    I'm Pan.

    I'ld choose Piccolo
    he's the strongest non-saiyan character, and post frieza saga he's the only character who seems to gain real strength rather than accessing new forms like the saiyan characters. he also serves as a source of comedic material on more than one occasion without being dimwitted like Goku (no i don't hate goku) and frankly he's witty and just a brilliant character in my opinion

    I pick Krillin! Idk why. He got himself killed. Then again, so did Goku, and Piccolo, and Yamcha... and Tien... And choatsu... (Idk how to spell his name lol)
