I can’t ever respect someone who stans for Tien after DB....I mean maybe he was cool when he was handing out Kikohos to Cell but before and after he’s had Ls after Ls


Like the time Nappa punched him so hard he lost a hand

Like the time a half torso Majin Buu bodied him with a single kick

Like the time Gohan snatched his soul in Super
A dude named Julianstyles. He is a legit Tenshinhan fanboy, and just stans him and shits on Kuririn.

No character does anything braver or more (relatively) impressive than Tien holding Semi-Perfect Cell down.

The character does almost nothing else relevant post-DB, but that moment goes a long way.

I will usually give Tien some props due to the pop off he did on cell so he doesn't get a much ire compared to everyone else but the bold is fucking asinine
It’s just how it is. No issues with liking one and hating the other. If he actively shits on Kuririn and does everything in his power to undermine him.

Peeps are free to like Tenshinhan, but I just can’t fathom using that much energy to stan Tenshinhan of all characters nowadays, especially after what they did to him over the last year.

I don't understand why more people don't talk about this. After King Piccolo, he became such a nothing character.
Yea it always seems like people always held him up on a pedestal because he came from Dragon Ball. If I remember right most of his best character development came from the anime filler for starters.

It seems to me the franchise would be a heck of a lot better if they dropped some of the old guard and gave their roles to some of the new blood introduced in Super.

As far as new characters go, I want more from Jiren and U6. When it comes to the old characters, I’d retire the humans and 18, and hell Boo if he’s going to get shafted regardless. Piccolo could be made relevant again but he needs to not be a satellite character for Gohan. Goten and Trunks need to grow up and be given some focus to potentially make them interesting characters and just give them something more as characters.

I want more from the new characters, but I do think some old characters could see more use as well atm

They def should just replace the old cast if they're done with them after their main arc if it means these new side characters would get to contribute but they don't and they won't so here we are

*sigh*
!7, Kale, Caulifla and Hit were all featured supporting characters in the last arc. I don't see where this sigh comes from when the last time Super was around, you had new (or new-old in the case of 17) supporting characters in prominent roles.

Yeah and the Tournament of Power was a good start but its like the only circumstance that would have worked in. I'm honestly not hopeful that trend will continue with that many relevant characters

Do it outside of a tournament arc, and we'll talk
Yeah this we can't have every arc be a tournament arc if we want other characters to matter

Ding! Ding! Ding! When I see Jiren, or Caulifla, or 17 be relevant in a non-tournament saga, I’ll jump for joy.

You’re right to not be hopeful given how this series functions. It’s a safe bet that most of these characters are gonna get/conti us to get left in the dust outside very specific circumstances.
