Is Semi-Perfect Cell the worst DBZ design or what?

I saw some unused Popo designs before. His introduction where he completely dominated Goku after the triumphant battle with King Piccolo was pretty cool, so I wish we could have bird/lizard designs instead of this one that needs to be buried.



Jiren grew on me for its simplicity. Take a common alien design that's usually wirey and take it in the other direction. I also particularly like the Pride Trooper's uniform.



Someone mentioned Super Buu, and a detail that's lost in the manga is the hands. In the manga, Buu's hands develop more as he absorbs more people. Fat Buu has gloves for hands, then until he's absorbed Gohan, some of his fingers are still not fully distinct from palm. Like Piccolo growing an extra finger in the anime, it's probably because censors/studios are sensitive about people whose hands might invoke yakuza.

man, it speaks wonders about dragonball that even the worst designs (barring stuff from GT) are just "meh". I've seen some garbage ass designs in other popular shonen (mainly women) and they make the worst of the worst from Dragonball look amazing
You need to rephrase that, as DB worst includes the racist designs of Mr. Popo, General. Black and most, if not all, black people in the original dragon ball.

I don't know if that's true. Certainly more in the anime, but other dark-skinned character like Pamput and King Chappa probably wouldn't get complaints.

I always just ignore dragonball since I hadn't watched it until after Z and I didn't "get it" like people say it's really good and I'm like "this isn't good at all."

I don’t think it’s a bad design, honestly. The Cell saga in the manga doesn’t drag on as long as Buu, but both had very strong early chapters.

Super has uglier designs.
