---- [[foldercontrol]] [[folder: Main Characters]] !!Goku ->'''Voiced by:''' [=MasakoX=] [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_goku_finds_the_muffin_button___muffins____by_silverstream_pi-d56nq2c_3010.png]] [[caption-width-right:350:"Yaaaaaaaaaay!!"]] * {{Angrish}}: His Super Saiyan form... at least temporarily. * {{Badass}}: Let's see, he manages to... ** Beat the crap out of Nappa in less than a minute (Episode 9) ** Beat up Turles's goons in less time he took with Nappa (Christmas Tree of Might) ** Hands Vegeta his ass constantly with the Kaio-Ken (Episode 10 pt 1) ** Completely dominate half the Ginyu Force without even really trying. As in, he wanted to know where the ''real'' fighters were. ** Annihilates Lord Slug's goons in under two minutes. ** Effortlessly deflects ''every single shot'' from Freeza's BeamSpam. *** All while, unknowingly, outright ''taunting'' the guy. ** Beats up Freeza in considerably less time than in the source material.[[note]]This version cut out Goku's supposed death and subsequent Gohan segment, to just having him knee Freeza in the face out of nowhere[[/note]] ** BadassBoast: "I'm going to break you... like a Kit-Kat bar" * BadLiar: ** He spilled the beans to Chi Chi about him and Gohan going to found the androids instead of going on camping. -->'''Gohan:''' Three years, dad. Three years. You almost got it. ** And, if it wasn't for Piccolo to stop him in time, he would have spilled the beans about there being more innocent people on the island to the androids. * BaconAddiction: It ends up killing him in Trunks' timeline. See TrademarkFavoriteFood below for more details. ** He also keeps bacon in his pockets. * BerserkButton: ** "YOU NEVER WASTE FIGGY PUDDING!" (Christmas Tree of Might) ** Also, "Nobody... rapes Christmas!" (Lord Slug) ** And in Episode 30, part 2: "That wasn't a pizza... THAT WASN'T A PIZZA AT ALL!" ** Don't threaten his friends, especially Krillin, whom he cares for deeply. He will bring the pain if you do. ** If Revenge of Cooler is any indication, needlessly harming animals is one as well, although he did refer to Oolong and Icarus as emergency food. ** DON'T imply that you can have "too much bacon." He'll go Super Saiyan if you do. * BloodKnight: He didn't care what Freeza was capable of, he just wanted to beat him up. ** [[spoiler: He stops the fight with Freeza in episode 30 part 2 because he was getting bored.]] ** He's looking forward to fighting the Androids, as he feels he hasn't gotten a good fight since Freeza. * BrickJoke: Muffin button. Suprisingly enough, it ''saved'' his life as explained in episode 34. * BunnyEarsLawyer: His idiocy is exaggerated beyond belief. He's still TheAce for the Z Warriors, and a constant [[BigDamnHeroes big damn hero.]] * CannotKeepASecret: Tells Future Trunks this. Though he swears on Krillin's (but changed to Bulma's) life to keep Trunks' secret. * CatchPhrase: "[[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Bored now.]]" * CharacterExaggeration: Made out to be much dumber than his original character. * CharacterizationMarchesOn: Seems to be in the making with regards to his relationship to Gohan. Before Episode 27, he has been a somewhat attentive father to Gohan. As of Episode 27, he makes conversation with Krillin, Piccolo, and Vegeta while he responds to Gohan's "Hey Dad!" with a disinterested "Hey". ** In ''The Revenge of Cooler'', he completely forgets about Gohan's existence, talking about how, if he had a son, [[{{Irony}} he would be sure to treat him better than Freeza and Cooler were]]. Though, he still [[TakingTheBullet jumps in front of the death ray]] to save him in the same special. It's probably just a matter of [[RuleOfFunny whatever's funniest at the time]]. * ChildhoodBrainDamage: Goku fell on a rock head-first when he was still a child. And he's noticeably more ditzy and absent-minded than his canon self. * DeathByIrony: In Trunks' timeline, Goku's death is caused by heart failure from high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. * DefeatMeansFriendship: Certainly thinks this way about Vegeta, who outright defies it. * DumbBlonde: {{Inversion}}. Goku is usually quite the idiot, but when he goes Super Saiyan and as such blonde, he becomes much smarter compared to his actual intelligence. Emphasis on compared to his normal intelligence. ** The twist is that while he's indeed smarter and uses the correct words, he mispronounces them very often. -->'''Freeza''': That's not the problem, you idiot! [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace I can breathe in space]]! -->'''Goku''': But space is a ''vacumm''! ** Slips back into played straight when he sees Trunks become into a Super Saiyan -->'''Goku''': What happened to your hair? It's yellow!! -->'''Trunks''':... So is yours. -->'''Goku''': It is!? *** Though this may be justified because Goku cannot see see his changes as a Super Saiyan. * EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the two abridged DBZ movies that Lanipator, [=Vegeta3986=], and [=MasakoX=] made before Team Four Star came together, Goku was a lot smarter and a ''major'' {{Jerkass}}. * GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Not-so subtly implied between him and his wife Chi-Chi in ''Christmas Tree of Might'' -->'''Goku:''' Well, what am I getting for Christmas?\\ '''Chi-Chi:''' The same thing as last year, Goku.\\ '''Goku:''' Oh, so that thing you do with your mouth...?\\ '''Chi-Chi:''' NOT IN FRONT OF GOHAN! ** And later in the same special: ---> '''Goku''' ([[InternalMonologue thinking]]): Oh, man! If Chi-Chi finds out about this, I might not get mouth present. * ImAHumanitarian: His explanation for how he learned instant transmission. * {{Malaproper}}: While he's smarter as a Super Saiyan he trips over words a lot more than usual. * {{Manchild}}: Like you wouldn't ''believe''. -->'''Ginyu:''' How's that wound treating you? -->'''Goku:''' This is easily the ''second''-worst hole I've ever had in my chest. It's gonna take, like, a million Mommy-kisses to make it better. * MotivationalLie: Uses one on a transformed Gohan in season 1 to get Gohan to concentrate on Vegeta. He's also had them used on him a few times, notably when King Kai tells Goku he has to save Christmas during the Lord Slug movie. * ObliviousToLove: Sorta. He thinks Chi-Chi is just a lady who lives in his house - he might not understand what a wife ''is''. This might be a ShoutOut to the fact that when Goku originally proposed to Chi-Chi he thought marriage was a food. * OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Generally acts smarter than usual during his desperate Spirit Bomb plan and is also smarter than usual when he becomes a Super Saiyan. ** Also slightly noticeable in a few of the movies / specials, since they're non-canon and all. * PapaWolf: Despite frequently neglecting his son, whenever Gohan's in danger, about to be killed or on the verge of death, Goku [[LetsGetDangerous gets serious]]. * ParentalNeglect: The series plays up the fact that Goku is a terrible father, to the point that Gohan's attempt to envision [[WhatWouldXDo what Goku would do]] is merely a short flashback of Goku saying "Bye, son!". He also left Gohan, who was crashed in the snow, to go driving with Piccolo. ** There's this little gem from episode 28: --->'''Goku:''' ''Wow. [Gohan] sounds like he's had a hard time. Piccolo should really have a talk with him.'' * SmartBall: That's right. He has his moments. ** The first is in Episode 2, where Raditz called Piccolo a Namekian, and Goku told him that [[MythologyGag Piccolo's race has not been explained yet]]. ** In the same episode, Goku explains eating a Senzu bean will not work because he has a hole in his esophagus (after getting a hole blasted in his chest in his HeroicSacrifice to kill Raditz). ** Fooling Goz and Mez into telling him where the exit is without having to take them up on their challenges. ** Another is when he managed to fool King Kai into thinking he hung up on his psychic link by [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud saying "click beeeeeeeeeeee *GASP* eeee-"]] ** He gets a few moments of brilliance in Episode 28, which he thanks [[OrsonWelles his brain]] for. ** Remembers the whole "five minutes" thing with the Special Beam Cannon when [[spoiler:Piccolo stalls Freeza while he charges the Spirit Bomb.]] ** He gets a noticeable increase in intelligence when he goes [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]]. He tells Gohan to take Piccolo and Bulma back to Earth to bring back everyone else, and allows Freeza to reach his maximum power so when he beats him in under five minutes, he'll be too "demormalized" to threaten anyone else (that and Freeza offered him pizza, which was the real reason). *** Of course, Goku is so dumb that even his intelligence-boosted Super Saiyan form is ''still'' a moron. * SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: You wouldn't believe how often. Very noticeable when he becomes a Super Saiyan. -->'''Goku''': "Gohan, take Piccolo, find Bulma, and get back to the ship. -->'''Gohan''': "But what about you?" -->'''Goku''': "If Piccolo dies, then all of this was pointless! Take him, get to the ship, and get out of here!" -->'''Gohan''': "[[LampshadeHanging This is surprisingly well thought-out for you."]] -->'''Goku''': *getting increasingly angry* "Gohan!? Where should you be right now!?" -->'''Gohan''': "The ship?" -->'''Goku''': "THE SHIP!!" ** Slams right back to silliness after he tells Freeza he's going to break him... like a Kit-Kat bar. * StupidityTropes: Oh, good lord, yes. He makes [[Franchise/DragonBall the real Goku]] look like a genius. ** AchievementsInIgnorance: -->'''Dr. Briefs''': "You're incredibly lucky I already set the coordinates for Namek, but you... you... where did you get that muffin?" -->'''Goku''': "Muffin button." -->'''Dr. Briefs''': "But, I... never installed a muffin button." -->'''Goku''': "Then where did I get this muffin...?" ** CloudCuckooLander: Lets get started... *** Wonders if Piccolo's a Yoshi, thinks that sarcasm is food, and asks if the moon is made of cheese. *** Half the time when he's fighting, he doesn't even understand that he's in a fight. He just... ''does things.'' Which badly hurt his opponents. *** In episode 27, he unknowingly delivers a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to ''Freeza''. *** In episode 34, when Goku finds out that Bulma is Trunks' mother, his first reaction is to be amazed at how old he's gotten in the year and a half since Goku assumes he must have been born. The impossibility of Trunks' existence never crosses his mind. ** DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm: "[[IsItSomethingYouEat What does that taste like?]]" *** It actually drives both Vegeta and Freeza into the throes of a VillainousBreakdown. ** IdiotHero: '''''Yes.''''' ** LiteralMinded: Good Lord, YES. So much that it drove Vegeta and Freeza [[VillainousBreakdown insane]]. Look how Goku got Freeza tripped up when they first met: --->'''Freeza:''' Unfortunately Vegeta and I were having a disagreement: He wanted himself to live and, well, I didn't.\\ '''Goku:''' Why do you want to die? *** And again while Super Saiyan. ---->'''Freeza:''' Will you just piss off already!?\\ '''Goku:''' I don't have to use the bathroom! ** StupidGood: An innocently nice guy, and just as stupid to boot. ** TooDumbToLive: He actually kept letting Freeza go during their fight. ** TookALevelInDumbass: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to his brain damage with his fight with Vegeta. Perhaps he ''did'' hit his head harder than he thought. * TalkingToHimself: Like the original Japanese version, he and Gohan share the same voice actor, [=MasakoX=]. * TrademarkFavoriteFood: '''''[[BaconAddiction Bacon.]]''''' Instead of being killed by a heart virus in Trunks' timeline, he is instead killed by a heart attack caused by high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. When Trunks tells him the the medicine he gave him is [[BlatantLies bacon flavored]], Goku is overjoyed. ** In his opinion, the best idea he's ever had is a sandwich with bacon instead of bread. Krillin also believes that Goku's favorite food is the Double Baconator. !!Gohan ->'''Voiced by:''' [=MasakoX=] * {{Adorkable}}: Acknowledged as such in Dragon Ball Kai Abridged: -->'''Goku:''' I have a kid. -->'''Gohan:''' I'm socially awkward. -->'''Krillin:''' He's adorable! * {{Badass}} ** BadassAdorable ** BadassBoast: Prone to giving them, and usually has the power and skill to back it up. The problem is, he's usually facing someone a lot stronger than he is, leading to an OhCrap moment. ** BadassBookworm: Taken UpToEleven from the original franchise. Also see SesquipedalianLoquaciousness. * BerserkButton: Never hurt Goku, Piccolo, or innocent elders/children. He will wreck you. * BewareTheNiceOnes: TAKE THAT, YOU INSUFFERABLE F*CKING SIMPLETON!! * BreakTheCutie ** TraumaCongaLine * CallingTheOldManOut: In Episode 23, even if it wasn't really his dad he was saying it to. ** But Goku was there and did overhear it. (Even if he didn't understand..) ** And half of it wasn't even Goku's fault. * CatchPhrase: ** "Crapbaskets!" whenever things get bad. ** "...I need an adult..." ** PhraseCatcher: "I ''AM'' an adult", in response. Alternatively, "''NEEEEEEEERRRRDD''" and "'''DODGE!!'''", mainly from Piccolo. * CrossdressingVoices: Averted with his younger self, who's been cast as a girl in nearly every official dub for the series. * DynamicCharacter: He starts out much more naive than in the original franchise. Flash forward to the Season 2 Finale, when casually threatens to ''drop [[ItsAllAboutMe Bulma]] to her death'' if she doesn't quit [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]]. * EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He's one of the most intelligent characters these days, but back in the Dead Zone Abridged movie, he needed schooling to know ''how many fingers a fish had.'' ** [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation That may well]] be his lack of [[NoSocialSkills social skills]], and him making a StealthPun: Fish fingers, anyone? * HulkSpeak: Engages in a little of this after Freeza supremely pisses him off by [[spoiler:nearly killing Krillin.]] * MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: As in the original series, he can sense things. But in the season 2 finale, he looks upon a ship and mentions he senses a "dark force" inside. [[spoiler:Cue his mother rushing out demanding to know where Gohan is.]] * OnlySaneMan: For the heroes. * ParentalIssues: Episode 23 reveals that Gohan holds a lot of pent up resentment towards Goku for being a neglectful parent. He lets it out on Ginyu while he's in Goku's body, and it slowly starts slipping out afterward. ** In a twist of irony, while [[Anime/DragonBallZ in the canon series]] the thought of Ginyu looking like Goku made him not able to fight at full strength, in Abridged it just motivated him even further. ** He also has issues with his mother's controlling and domineering behavior and snaps on her shortly before leaving for Namek. * ParentalNeglect: Goku has been out fighting/training/dying for so much of Gohan's life that when he tries to picture something Goku would say, all he can get is Goku saying goodbye to him. * PintSizedPowerhouse * PrecisionFStrike: Usually drops an F-bomb when enraged usually combined with... ** SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: He's called "Nerd" by Piccolo for this. * SanitySlippage: Being dragged into violent, nightmarish battles and having [[ParentalNeglect Goku]], [[EducationMama Chi-Chi]]'s and [[DrillSergeantNasty Piccolo]] [[AbusiveParents as parents]] has begun taking a serious toll on his mind. * SophisticatedAsHell: The result of combining the previous two tropes. * TalkingToHimself: With Goku. * UnstoppableRage: Even more emphasized than it was in the original. Gohan's got issues. * WiseBeyondTheirYears !!Krillin [[spoiler:Sanchez]] ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator * ADayInTheLimelight: Stars in Episode 31, where things finally start going his way. [[spoiler:Then the feds show up...]] * AsTheGoodBookSays: [[RuleOfFunny Despite being a Buddhist.]] * AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Goku considers Krillin to be his best friend and Krillin's death is what causes Goku to go Super Saiyan. ** When Krillin thinks Sauza has destroyed the only means of saving Goku's life in ''Revenge of Cooler'', he goes nuts and launches a hopeless attack on Sauza. ** When Trunks revealed he was a Super Saiyan to Goku, Goku remembered what had happened to trigger his initial transformation and immediately started asking if Krillin was OK and refused to talk about anything else until he was given an answer. This is very telling of their friendship because Krillin's welfare got [[CloudCuckoolander GOKU]] to stay focused on something. * BringMyBrownPants * ButtMonkey: Lampshaded with "The Krillin Owned Count". * [[spoiler:ButNotTooForeign[=/=]{{Fauxreigner}}: Krillin looks Tibetan[[note]]in the original series he was trained in a (supposedly) Buddhist temple, wore Buddhist garments, and even has forehead dot burns like Buddhist monks[[/note]] but his surname is Sanchez, meaning he's Latino.]] * CallingMeALogarithm: When Nappa points out the Namekian in the group (referring to Piccolo), Krillin takes offense. Piccolo immediately corrects him and tells him how stupid his reaction was. * TheChewToy * ComicallyMissingThePoint: He doesn't pick up on the fact that Dende doesn't like being called "Little Green" despite Dende repeatedly saying "My name is Dende" in response, nor does he realize that no one likes the name Team Three Star (including himself) even though Vegeta repeatedly threatens him over it. Gohan has to say it outright for both of these. * DirtyCoward: Shows some shades of this. * InsuranceFraud: Because he took a large policy out on himself and named [[spoiler:his "brother", who is just himself under a different name, as the beneficiary, it is this trope.]] * ItsAllAboutMe: So terrified of dying or being hurt that his empathy for other people is a little delayed. * NiceJobBreakingItHero: In spades, whether out of [[DirtyCoward fear]] or [[IdiotBall stupidity]]. ** Bulma calls Krillin out on this when he hands a dragon ball over to Vegeta. Of course, this is [[HairTriggerTemper Vegeta]] we're talking about, [[JustifiedTrope so it's quite justified on his part]]. ** He also cannot shut up when he is scared, informing Vegeta about the potential-unlocking Super Kami Guru, telling Captain Ginyu where the majority of dragon balls are located (right behind him, to be fair), screaming out loud about Goku's "secret" attempt to defeat Freeza (the latter thankfully had no idea what he was talking about), and '''[[SubvertedTrope almost]]''' dropped Earth's name as their home planet to [[TheSociopath Freeza]] (only for [[JerkAss Dende]] to spill it himself)). ** In fact, it's because of Krillin's mistreatment of Dende (always calling him "Little Green" and berating him for mourning his deceased family) that he dropped our planet's identity to the intergalactic evil space emperor. ** Also unwittingly causes one for himself when he reveals to Marin he committed insurance fraud. [[spoiler: Turned out Marin was a government agent assigned to get a confession out of him.]] * TheNicknamer: "Little Green!" Dende's attempts to correct him fall on deaf ears. ** And to Nail: "Big Green!" Nail didn't appreciate it, and made that fact clear. * NoIndoorVoice: When scared. * NoSell: For all that he's an OvershadowedByAwesome ButtMonkey and treated as a weakling by other characters, Krillin has managed the NoSell a few times. He was immune to the lasers or whatever fired at him by the people running from Freeza, and Guldo was clearly surprised when Krillin barely reacted to having a steamroller dropped on him. -->'''Krillin:''' What the hell was that?!\\ '''Guldo:''' ...that... was supposed to crush you. * OvershadowedByAwesome: Frequently lampshaded, and the former TropeNamer. Well, at least he's stronger than [[TheArtifact Yamcha]]. And [[StarterVillain Raditz]]. * PhraseCatcher: "Krillin! TooSoon!" * TalkingToHimself: With Vegeta, Piccolo, and Mr. Popo. And more. !!Piccolo ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/piccoshi_7773.png]] [[caption-width-right:350:"I'm not a god-damn Yoshi!"]] * {{Badass}}: Always has the attitude, can't always back it up. But when he does, it's memorable, especially in the Lord Slug movie. * BerserkButton: [[DetonationMoon STOP MOCKING ME!!]] * BigDamnHeroes: When he shows up during the fight with form 2 Freeza after having fused with Nail, complete with [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Magus' battle theme playing]][[note]]Magus being a similar character designed by Creator/AkiraToriyama[[/note]]. He then proceeds to send Freeza flying with a single punch. ** In the Lord Slug movie he shows up to save Gohan while the theme song of StoneColdSteveAustin plays, and one mook asks if he's {{Batman}}. It's hard to find a bigger damn hero than that. ** In the Lord Slug movie, he also lampshades his tendency to do this. -->'''Piccolo''': ''(while TakingTheBullet for Gohan)'' WHY CAN'T YOU SAVE YOUR OWN DAMN SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELF!? * ButtMonkey: Obviously not as much as Krillin or Yamcha, but shows signs of this from time to time, especially around other Namekians. * {{Catchphrase}}: '''"DODGE!!!"''' * DeadpanSnarker: Frequently, though he does it in rapid succession in the Lord Slug movie. -->'''Piccolo:''' And that, no doubt, would make you the big, tough, stupid one.\\ '''Dordabo:''' You take that back or I'll kill you.\\ '''Piccolo:''' All right, all right, you're not tough.\\ '''Dordabo:''' That's better.\\ {{Beat}}\\ '''Gohan:''' Wait, didn't you--\\ '''Piccolo:''' Give him a minute.\\ {{Beat}} {{Beat}} {{Beat}}\\ '''Dordabo:''' ...[[LateToThePunchline Hey!]] You son of a bitch! ''(Attempts to punch Piccolo but [[DeadlyDodging punches a hole in a truck instead]])''\\ '''Piccolo:''' Now now, that truck is not your eating disorder.\\ '''Dordabo:''' You're a penis!\\ '''Piccolo:''' So long since you've seen yours you don't even recognize one, do you? ** There's also this exchange with borderline {{Bishonen}} Angira. --->'''Angira:''' We're just here for your planet. But if I had to pick [a gimmick] I'd say I'm the pretty one.\\ '''Piccolo:''' Meh. 6 out of 10.\\ '''Angira:''' You sassy bitch. * DetonationMoon: STOP MOCKING ME!! ** MOOOOOOOOOOON!!! * ForgotICouldFly: When it comes to his ability to stretch his arms. -->'''[[SharingABody Nail]]''': Huh, I didn't know we could do that. -->'''Piccolo''': Yeah, I forget about 'em sometimes too. * GenreSavvy: In the Lord Slug movie: -->That would make you [[TheDarkChick the weird one with the freaky powers]], and that would make ''you'' no doubt [[TheBrute the big, tough, stupid one]]. ** Happens again in the Cooler movie, but the ones he was categorizing were too stupid to realize which one each of them were. * GoodIsNotNice: UpToEleven from the original * HeroicSacrifice: Like in the original, he shielded Gohan from Nappa's attack and died. Lampshaded due to the fact that he realized he could just grab him, and save them both. -->''Alright, it's time to redeem myself. Through one final act of redemption, I'll save Gohan an- wait a second, why didn't I just grab him? I can probably still do that now, actually. Yeah, that's it, I'll grab him, and '''throw''' him out of the wa--'''[[KilledMidSentence AAAARRRRRGH!]]''''' * HomelessHero: Nail suggests he buys one, but he can't and won't get a job. * IJustWantToHaveFriends: He agrees to aid Goku in the first episode when Goku offers to friend him on MySpace ("Tom, you've been replaced!") and his first words upon spotting Nail are "SOCIAL ACTIVITY!" He even admits to being quite desperate for friends; he does cut himself off, but far too late. When Tien states rather bluntly that he has no friends in ''Bald This Way'', he actually runs off the set in tears. * IneffectualLoner: Zigzags this with IJustWantToHaveFriends. He becomes even more ineffectual a loner after Nail starts sharing his head. --> '''Nail''' So, you wanna go hang out with our race? --> '''Piccolo''' No. ** As of episode 34 he seems to being grown out of this, having developed something of a friendship with Goku. He covers for Goku's idiocy not once, but twice, and also goes with Goku to race cars. * {{Jerkass}}: During the first time he talked to Gohan, before his HeelFaceTurn was cemented. "Hate to tell ya, kid. But your dad's '''DEAD!'''... Actually, I kinda like saying that. HA HA! YOUR DAD'S DEAD!" ** Piccolo's become more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold in the later episodes, when he was healed by Dende on Earth, the first thing he did when he woke up was call out for Gohan. * LargeHam * SharingABody: With Nail. * SinkOrSwimMentor: To Gohan. The first thing he did as the kid's mentor was to throw him at a giant rock formation so he (Gohan) could break it. [[HilarityEnsues He crashes into the formation and starts bawling.]] --> '''Piccolo:''' ''(walking over to a crying Gohan, annoyed)'' ''[[TrainingFromHell This is going to be a loooooooooooooong training session.]]'' * SuperSenses: His hearing is good enough for him to have heard Goku and Trunks' whole conversation despite being a few hundred yards away. * TalkingToHimself: With Vegeta and Krillin. * TheSmartGuy * VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to be developing this with Nail. The relationship seems to form a weird symbiosis. Piccolo finally has someone to fill his social void and Nail finally has someone he can bicker with. * WeaksauceWeakness: Just as in canon, it turns out in ''Lord Slug Abridged'' that WHISTLING causes intense pain and discomfort to Namekians. But only if they can hear it. --> "WHAT?!" * TheWorfEffect: Just as in the original series, and particularly in the specials. Piccolo shows up, makes an incredibly badass showing of taking out the minions, and then gets utterly trounced by the BigBad. !!Vegeta ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vegetarage_8659.png]] [[caption-width-right:350: [[RageBreakingPoint Rage breaking in 3...2...1...]]]] * {{Angrish}}: Frequently lapses into this. ** After killing Dodoria and Zarbon, Vegeta goes to the spot where he hid the Dragon Ball... it's not there. Vegeta couldn't even speak Angrish properly after that. * AtomicFBomb: Episode 10. * AuthorityInNameOnly: As Bulma notes, being the Prince of all Saiyans doesn't mean much if there are [[LastOfHisKind only two]] Saiyans left![[note]]Though Gohan is half Saiyan and unbeknownst to Bulma, Nappa got resurrected.[[/note]] --> '''Vegeta''': ''[[LameComeback Three and a half!]]'' * {{Badass}}: Put it this way; when Vegeta landed on Namek, he was weaker than Freeza's top henchmen. By the end, he's killed all of Freeza's minions, and tries taking on the boss man himself. Vegeta gets extra points for [[DefiantToTheEnd continuing to mouth off to Freeza]] after [[CurbStompBattle a particularly savage beating]], so much that Freeza decided to shoot a beam through his lung to finally kill him. * BadassBoast: Both played straight and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] on a regular basis. * BerserkButton: [[BrickJoke Don't thwart his plans]]. ** And Anime/DragonBallGT. He kills Vegeta Jr (one of the Saibamen), and snaps upon hearing the theme song. ** He also hates weaklings and the color pink. ---> '''Tien''' Hey Vegeta.\\ '''Vegeta''' What?\\ '''Tien''' [[RealMenWearPink Nice shirt]].\\ '''Vegeta''' AND THERE IT IS! ** Almost anything Nappa does has to count too. * BigBad: Season 1 (The Saiyan Saga) * BigNo: Has several of these. ** Most notable one was the introduction of GHOST NAPPA! * BelligerentSexualTension: A HUGE case of this with Bulma, until they did the deed in Episode 34. Quickly made hilarious when Bulma (and the audience) discover that he has absolutely ''no idea'' what a condom is?! * BloodKnight: A requirement on the Saiyan résumé. He shoots down Bulma's suggestion of murdering the creator of the Androids (although he does love how she phrased it) because he's as excited at the chance of fighting them as Goku is. * BondOneLiner: Against Cui. --> "God, I love therapy". * BreakTheHaughty: Freeza makes him cry, "[[PreAsskickingOneLiner Like a little bitch]]," in episode 27 * BreakingTheFourthWall: In Episode 9. Nappa is being extremely stupid and gave Vegeta a brain aneurysm out of "sheer stupidity", so Vegeta breaks the fourth wall by muttering "9 minutes 18 seconds," over and over, (The episode was 9:42 seconds long, they were 24 seconds in). When Nappa asks what happens when they reach that time, Vegeta replies: "The happiest moment of my life". (which was Nappa's death) * ButForMeItWasTuesday: He doesn't even remember Yamcha. Until he recognizes him as "that scrub that got killed by a Saibaman". * CallingYourOrgasms: "Gallick... gun... ''FIIIIRRREEEEEE''!!!" ** TheGruntingOrgasm: Also, literally ''fires a Galick Gun'' when he climaxes. * CardCarryingVillain: Goku just wouldn't get it otherwise. --> "I'M F**KING EVIL." --> "Don't care. Evil." --> "[[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Renegade for life]].'' ** It's also used to poke fun at the [=FUNimation=] dub's changes to Vegeta's characterization (and specifically, his death speech). --> '''Goku:''' If it weren't for Freezer you wouldn't be- --> '''Vegeta:''' Dying? No. --> '''Goku:''' I was gonna say "evil". --> '''Vegeta:''' Oh, no, I'd definitely still be evil. If this situation were reversed, this conversation would never have happened. You'd be dead, and I'd be laughing. * CatchPhrase: "Goddamn it, Nappa!" ** "F*ck you!" seems to be one as well. * CharacterExaggeration: While he doesn't get as much as some characters, he's a lot less restrained than his original characterization. * TheChewToy: But it's mostly mentally unlike Krillin or Yamcha. * CosmicPlaything * CultureClash: When Bulma asked if he had "protection" and to wear it when they had sex, he made sure to wear his battle armor. * CryCute: Episode 27, much like the original, when he realizes that his strongest attack is barely worth Freeza's notice. Almost a TearJerker, given Lanipator's ''amazing'' voice acting. * EvenEvilHasStandards: It's more an issue of horrible spectacle than morality, but even Vegeta is given pause when [[spoiler: the Namekians slaughter Guru.]] ** In a more comedic sense, [[spoiler:he's only willing to live with Bulma if there's a pool.]] * EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor / PoliticallyIncorrectVillain --> '''Goku:''' That was in terrible taste!\\ '''Vegeta:''' Don't care! Evil! * GutturalGrowler: Lampshaded in Blooper Special: -->'''Lanipator''': Why did I have to be cast as the loudest, screamiest, most raspy-voiced character? * HairTriggerTemper: Throughout season 2, Vegeta has been steadily losing his cool more and more. * IJustWantToBeSpecial: He's always going on about the Saiyans being the greatest fighters in the universe, and he's completely and utterly obsessed with becoming a Super Saiyan. ** [[spoiler: To the point there Freeza kills him mid-sentence just because he's sick of hearing the Super Saiyan speech.]] ** Taken into overdrive after the arrival of Future Trunks, leading Vegeta to repeatedly ''[[InsistentTerminology insist]]'' that he's [[BlatantLies a Super Saiyan]], but no-one buys it! * IncrediblyLamePun: Is quite prone to unintentionally delivering these. * {{Jerkass}}: "By the way, I only hit you because I have pent-up aggression against your father. Take that." After kneeing Gohan in the stomach in Episode 18. * KnowWhenToFoldThem: The end of Season 1, after stopping Gohan's Oozaru form backfires. -->"Crushed and broken beneath an unconscious, naked child. Yep, I think I'm done here." * LightningBruiser: His Oozaru form, unfortunately for Goku. * LoveableRogue: Self-entitled; he describes himself as a "handsome, dashing rogue". * ManChild: Has shades of it... probably because he spent too much time with Nappa. --> [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo "Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, MIIINEE!"]] ** One of the convention extras reveals Nappa's PsychopathicManchild persona is a result of the childhood trauma of his parents' death. And what happens to Vegeta at age five? * TheNapoleon: -->'''Jeice:''' Not that short, Captain.\\ '''Ginyu:''' Oh don't go all 'Vegeta' on me. * OnlySaneMan: When compared to the likes of [[TooDumbToLive Goku, Nappa,]] or the [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad Ginyu Force]]. ** Although it seems his time with Nappa and Krillin is beginning to take its toll on his sanity. * OutOfClothesExperience: What he thought death entailed, only that was just King Yemma tricking him. * ParentalIssues: In Episode 10. -->'''Vegeta:''' "You...you cut through my armor! This was a gift from my father!"\\ '''Yajirobe:''' "I'm sorry, I'm sure your father was a great man!"\\ '''Vegeta:''' "[[BerserkButton I HATED my father!]]"\\ '''Yajirobe:''' "Oh, well then, I'm sure your father was a total prick."\\ '''Vegeta':''' [[HairTriggerTemper "HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT MY FATHER LIKE THAT!"]] * PintSizedPowerhouse: He's a good deal shorter than several characters. Lampshaded by Nail in Episode 18: -->'''Nail:''' "Bring it on, all 4 feet of you! ''Or should I count your stupid hair''?" * PreAsskickingOneLiner: Against Jeice; -->"G'day, mate." ** And against Ginyu --->'''Ginyu:''' At least I'm not trapped in a useless body.\\ '''Vegeta:''' Gimme a minute. * PreMortemOneLiner: Has several in Season 2. --> "Let me put it to you in a way you'll understand: I'm about to blow my load all over your insides [...] No homo". * RealMenWearPink: Although he hates every minute of it: -->'''Vegeta:''' ''[Upon sensing Freeza]'' Son of a bitch!\\ '''Yamcha:''' What, still ticked off about the shirt?\\ '''Vegeta:''' NO, I--well, yes, actually, I'm absolutely livid. * RedEyesTakeWarning: In Episode 18, he apparently bursts a blood vessel in one of his eyes when Gohan pulls one over on him and Ghost Nappa shows up to torment him, causing it to go red. The other follows suit shortly after. ** His eyes also glow red in Bulma's [[spoiler: rape-fantasy]]. * ScrewThisImOutOfHere: ** After being beaten in Episode 10: -->'''Vegeta:''' Crushed and broken beneath [[ItMakesSenseInContext an unconscious, naked child]]. Yep, I think I'm done here. ** [[spoiler:In Episode 35, when Bulma tells him to get a job and help raise Trunks, he flees into space in a Capsule Corp ship a year and a half before the fight with Dr. Gero and Android 19.]] * ShyBladder: Used as an excuse to get out of fighting Ginyu, while Goku explains. Later, while taking a nap, he wakes up suddenly shouting "I HAVE TO PEE!" And then later, Freeza taunts him by asking when he graduated from Pull-ups. * StraightMan: To Nappa, and the others sometimes as well. * SurroundedByIdiots * TalkingInYourSleep: A dream he has while unconscious leads to [[ShoutOut "My power is]] [[MemeticMutation maximum..."]] --> "First immortality, then the bitches." * TalkingToHimself: With Krillin and Piccolo. * TemptingFate: Any time Vegeta says "There's nothing you can do about it!"... something's going to get done about it. * UnstoppableRage: His [[TheScream moment]] in Episode 18. * VerbalTic: Has a frequency to say "god damn it" even without Nappa around. * VillainProtagonist: Of Season 2 (The Namek Saga) ''without question''. * VillainousBreakdown: In episode 10 during his fight with Goku. Part of it is because Vegeta is losing to Goku, the other part is [[IdiotHero making sense of Goku]]. !!Future Trunks ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * {{Adorkable}}: Badass, but adorkable nevertheless. He gets hilariously awkward when meeting Goku. * {{Badass}}: Kills Freeza and King Cold in less than a few minutes like in the original manga.[[note]]Like in the manga, he only had 3 pages worth in killing Freeza than in the anime and ''Kai, where his fight with Freeza was considerably longer[[/note]] ** And before that, DiagonalCut combined with YouAreAlreadyDead on all of Freeza's mooks (Minus one, but Freeza finishes him off anyway just because). Apparently he's been practicing getting it ''just'' right for 3 months. ** Should being able to ''traumatize'' Freeza count?[[note]]When Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan in front of Freeza, the tyrant reacts by comparing him to Goku (complete with him saying "Pizza"), Freeza immediately tries to kill him and the planet[[/note]] * BadassBoast: "If it's a Super Saiyan you're looking for, I can fill the part." Cue doing so while King Cold and Freeza are arguing during his transformation. * CoolShip: If episode 34 is anything to go by, Trunks' time machine? It's a TARDIS. * CoolSword * CurbStompBattle: If you knew the source material, then it's inevitable. * DeadpanSnarker: All throughout his fight with Freeza, every other line that came out of Trunks' mouth was pure snark. * DiagonalCut: Justified and Explained; apparently, he's been practicing that for a few months. Also, it's not as easy as they make it look. * EarlyBirdCameo: Made an appearance in episode 18, where he heard his father's scream all the way from Namek, two decades into the future. * EstablishingCharacterMoment: See Badass above? He does all that in his introductory episode. * FutureBadass: His EstablishingCharacterMoment cements it. He, much like his source counterpart, annihilates all but one of Freeza's squad just by cutting them with his sword. * HeroicBastard: He was born from Vegeta and Bulma's UnresolvedSexualTension and the fact that Vegeta doesn't know what a condom is. When Bulma told Vegeta she was pregnant and asked him to get a job to support her, his reaction was to immediately take off into space. * LightningBruiser: Catches and lifts Freeza's Death Ball [[NoSell with one hand]], fast enough to escape its explosion when Freeza blows it up, and strong enough to slice Freeza to pieces with his sword, not to mention [[BarehandedBladeBlock catching said sword]] when King Cold tried to use it against him. * OnlySaneMan: While he still has some comical quirks, he's still competent, smart, and relatively serious. * PreMortemOneLiner: "HEY FREEZA, YOU SHOULD SPLIT!!!" ** "Actually, that pretty much sealed it." And this is when he shoots through King Cold. * PostMortemOneLiner: "So. How many points are those?" * ScreamingAtSquick: After Bulma makes a pass at him, even saying he can call her "mommy". On the surface, he still manages to keep a straight face, but internally he is screaming bloody murder. * YouFightLikeACow: And he'll keep repeating the joke until you get it. [[/folder]] [[folder:Supporting Characters]] !!Bulma ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Megami33=] * BelligerentSexualTension: With Vegeta. * TheChick * DemotedToExtra: {{Lampshaded}} * HotMom: In episode 35. ** GlamorousSingleMother: Since Vegeta want to space, [[spoiler: running away from the responsibility]], a year and a half ago. * ItsAllAboutMe: When Yamcha contacts her from King Kai's planet, she dumps him for not contacting her in months (ignoring the fact he's dead reasoning he's doing it now so why not before?) and while talking with Yamcha invites Vegeta to her home to stay there. ** Then again, he did cheat on her back in the first episode. * NeutralFemale: To her chagrin: --> "Those bitches on [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime]] might put up with it, but not me!" * NiceJobBreakingItHero: Telling Lord Slug about the Dragon Radar. * OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: KILLING CRABS! IN THE OCEAN! * TheTease: Spends the entire month-long trip to Namek walking around the ship in her underwear, to Krillin's chagrin. !!Yamcha ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (Season 1), Faulerro (Season 2) * BringMyBrownPants: In episode 32. * ButtMonkey / TheChewToy: ''Definitely'' more than Krillin. In the second F.A.Q. special, the characters specifically say they pick on Krillin so much because Yamcha doesn't show up as often. --> '''Bulma''': No one screws Yamcha but life. ** CharacterizationMarchesOn: Surprisingly, he used to be considered TheAce. In-universe, anyway. * DefeatMeansFriendship: Averted. He's the ''only'' one who's bothered that Vegeta, the man who is in some way responsible for most of their deaths at one point or another, is taking a shower in the next room and moving in with Bulma. * DirtyCoward: In Episode 32 when Vegeta is laughing at him for losing to a Saibaman: -->'''Yamcha:''' Oh, yeah? I dare you to come over here and say that!\\ ''[Vegeta jumps in front of Yamcha]''\\ '''Vegeta:''' ''[Low and threatening]'' Ha. Ha. Ha.\\ '''Yamcha:''' ''[Nervously]'' See how we can all laugh together?\\ ''[When Bulma is leading Vegeta to the showers]''\\ '''Yamcha:''' ''[Internal monologue]'' Yeah, you better run. * [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: In Future Trunks' timeline, where he hangs himself after learning that Vegeta got Bulma pregnant.]] * FakeUltimateHero: In the first season, the rest gets a morale boost by Yamcha simply showing up on the battle field. And then he gets one-shotted by a Saibamen. * TheFriendNobodyLikes: Everyone looks down on him. Except Goku as of Episode 34, since he learned his [[DrivenToSuicide fate]] in Trunks' timeline. * GivingUpOnLogic: When Goku starts trying to "reason" with the [[WorldTree Tree of Might]] and the tree appears to answer, Yamcha gives up in disgust. * KilledMidSentence * LostInImitation: The line about Bulma thinking Yamcha was cheating in the first episode is based on Funimation DubText. In the original Japanese dialogue, Bulma is mad at Yamcha in the beginning of DBZ for canceling a date. Possibly lampshaded by Krillin. * NeverFoundTheBody: Or rather, they never looked for it at all. --> '''Yamcha''': Where did you bury me anyway? --> '''Bulma''': ''Bury?'' * PersonAsVerb: Getting Yamchaed means getting killed unceremoniously. -->'''Goku:''' Oh no! Yamcha got Yamchaed! * OneHitWonder: He sang a cat food song for a commercial since he needed the money. [[NeverLiveItDown Now everybody listens to it when Yamcha just wants to forget about it]]. * NoRespectGuy: To the point where you think TFS hates him. * TheOtherDarrin: [=Vegeta3986=] no longer voices Yamcha after leaving the series. As of Episode 28, he's now voiced by [[NullmetalAlchemist Faulerro]]. * PhraseCatcher: "I don't know what this 'Yamcha' is, but it sounds..." * RunningGag: For several episodes after [=Vegeta3986=] left TFS, whenever Yamcha is about to speak someone cuts him off, cementing his ButtMonkey status. * ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler: Goku convincing him not to kill himself. He's genuinely touched by somebody ''not'' treating him like shit.]] !!Tien[[note]]referred to by his Japanese name, Tenshinhan, on a few occasions[[/note]] and Chiaotzu ->'''Tien voiced by:''' Ganxingba ->'''Chiaotzu voiced by:''' Whiteash (Episode 6), [=Megami33=] (Current) * BerserkButton: Tien is ''very'' defensive with FandomBerserkButton related matters. -->''F*cking Weeaboos.'' * TheComicallySerious: As summed up in the abridgement of the abridged series' first season: --> "I am the only serious character in this show. That is the joke." ** Although he did join in on "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". * DeadpanSnarker: At least when Vegeta is involved. The first thing he does when the group meets up to fight Freeza is comment on [[RealMenWearPink Vegeta's shirt]], and then spends most of episode 34 mocking Vegeta about not being a Super Saiyan. All with a straight face. * HeHadAName: --> "You stupid... ugly... son of a bitch! His name was CHIAOTZU!" * HeroicSacrifice: Chiaotzu... but ended up being a SenselessSacrifice. ** In a variation from the original, Chiaotzu starts out thinking that he can just be revived by the Dragon Balls. Tien has to point out he's been revived once already... mere moments before Chiaotzu explodes. * HeterosexualLifePartners * HoYay: InvokedTrope As a running gag. * InformedJudaism: Parodied in ''Christmas Tree of Might''. * {{Jerkass}}: Chiaotzu, as shown in the FAQ Special. ** Tien as well in the "Born This Way" parody--he manages to ruin the song ''and'' make Piccolo run off set crying in less than 30 seconds. * KnowWhenToFoldThem: When the fight with Nappa starts disastrously, Tien seriously considers grabbing Chiaotzu and running. Unfortunately, Chiaotzu had already gotten involved in the fight and was going for a TakingYouWithMe attack. * MistakenForGay: Constantly. * TheOtherDarrin: Chiaotzu was voiced by Whiteash in episode 6; afterward, Megami33 took over. * SayMyName: "CHIAOTZUUUUUUUUUU!" * TakingYouWithMe: Chiaotzu tries to do this to Nappa. It didn't work. At all. * TeamDad: Tien, at least to Chiaotzu. !!Chi Chi ->'''Voiced by:''' Krisrix (briefly in Season 1), Hnilmik (Current) * AbusiveParents: Not exactly, but this little tidbit from "Christmas Tree of Might" may play on fans' suspicions: --> '''Gohan:''' SantaClaus's just gonna bring me books again...\\ '''Chi-Chi (threateningly):''' He brings you what you like! And '''''what''''' do you like?!\\ '''Gohan (scared):''' I like books! * AxCrazy[=/=]BewareTheNiceOnes: Though not as creepy and scary as Mr. Popo, Chi-Chi is still feared amongst the male characters, especially Krillin[[note]]he likes his penis where it is, thank you[[/note]] --> '''Krillin:''' Hypothetically... what would you do if you were told that your husband was dead and his son was kidnapped by his worst enemy?\\ '''Chi Chi:''' I'd castrate the messenger in his sleep '''''with a rusty carving knife'''''.\\ '''Krillin:''' Ohh...

You were lost in God only knows in space, refuse to let the dragon took you on and the first thing you ask where you're back? "Oh hey Chichi, would you mind if I take our baby boy to train to fight some ''monster robots''"!!? * BigWhat: Combined with DistantReactionShot. After founding that Goku and Gohan are actually going to fight the androids, her scream can be heared while the two guys and Piccolo are already flying away. * EducationMama: "You read it, you learn it, you love it!" * EvilSoundsDeep: She isn't evil but she was the "dark force" Gohan felt when he saw a ship coming to them, and her first words are '''"Where is MY baby!?"''' in a deep, terrifying voice after coming out. * MyBelovedSmother: To Gohan. * NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Almost has one in ''Lord Slug Abridged'' when she charges into battle and takes out one of Lord Slug's mooks with the 'Housewife Style Kick Of A Thousand Menstrual Cycles'. --> '''Chi Chi:''' You see, just because I'm a woman-''*Promptly punched in the face by another mook*''\\ '''Bulma:''' ...That actually lasted longer than I expected. * TheOtherDarrin: Krisrix in an episode from Season 1; voiced by Hnilmik from that point onward. * StepfordSmiler: Type C.

But I'll never say it flat out.'' * CatchPhrase: Hiiiiii. ** Pecking order * DarkIsEvil: He's one of the scariest people in the show, enjoys the suffering of others, and despite being possibly the most powerful person on the show, doesn't lift a finger to stop the assorted villains from wreaking havoc unless that havoc just included his marijuana patch. He's nominally on the heroes' side. ** And Creator/TeamFourStar does like to emphasize that his skin is dark: --->'''Krillin, on Namek:''' Actually, what I meant to say was, when you make a wish on the Dragon Balls, the sky turns ''darker than the blackest void!''\\ '''Mr. Popo, on Earth:''' Hmm? * TheDreaded: When Goku, who has defeated foes with Worlds destructing abilities, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Krillin]] and even the ''creators of this history'' fear you, you are a badass. * DrillSergeantNasty: "Shut up maggots!" and "All right, maggots, listen up!" * EvenEvilHasStandards: He would never torture... cats. * EvilLaugh: Done twice. One when Kami told him Popo would be training Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu, and two, when he saw Tien and Yamcha dying, in his training. * EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler: '''Kills Garlic Jr. before his arc even begins.''']] * ForTheEvulz: It certainly seems like this half the time. -->'''Vegeta''': *screaming ''Teamfourstar.com''* .COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO- -->'''Mr Popo''' (His face in Vegeta's hair)'': "-ooooooooooooooooooooom. -->'''Vegeta''': "What the, get outta my hair!" -->'''Mr Popo''': ''"No."'' * TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: As Kaiser Neko found out.

Of course, he was high as balls at the time, which may have had something to do with it. ** Also, he replaces the sun after it is accidentally blown up in ''Revenge of Cooler''. ** According to the pecking order, the Z-Warriors (and likely everyone else in the universe) are below the dirt, which is the next most pitiful thing to him. Who is the only exception to this order? '''Kami'''. Granted, he's still below Popo, but he's higher than everyone else, including Popo's ''stool''. * PhysicalGod: Goku blew up the sun in ''Revenge of Cooler''. Popo put it back. * SadistTeacher: Heavy emphasis on the sadist part. * ScaryBlackMan * TalkingToHimself: With [[ButtMonkey Krillin]], [[JackassGenie Shenron]], and [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jynx]]. * TheStoner: Apparently the only way Kami keeps him even ''slightly'' under control. --> I'm so f***ing high right now! * TokenEvilTeammate !!Kami ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (Season 1), [=WeeklyTubeShow=] (Season 2-current) * CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his earlier appearances--and especially the pre-Team Four Star ''Dead Zone Abridged''--the main joke for Kami was that he was painfully old and spoke with an exaggerated wheeze. After [[TheOtherDarrin his voice actor was replaced]], he was given a more normal voice and was portrayed as a DeadpanSnarker. * DeadpanSnarker: After he came back to life. Part 1 of episode 30 has him throwing a ''lot'' of snark at King Kai. It makes sense when you remember that [[spoiler: he ''is'' Piccolo's other half.]] * DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Smokes pot with [[HumanoidAbomination Popo]]. Possibly the basis of their... friendship? * NoRespectGuy: "You know, I am the Guardian of Earth. Can I please get a little more respect here?" * NumberTwo: Right below Mr. Popo on the Pecking Order. Whether he's TheLancer or TheDragon depends on how you view Popo. * TheOtherDarrin: Voiced by [=Vegeta3986=] in Season 1, and by [=WeeklyTubeShow=] afterward. * RetiredBadass: The Z-Warriors go to receive training from Kami in preparation for fighting Vegeta and Nappa, but since he is "quite old", he leaves their training to [[SadistTeacher Mr. Popo]]. * SelectiveObliviousness: To Mr. Popo's more brutal tendencies. ** Of course, it's not like he can ''do'' anything about it. Pecking order... * TheStoner: Apparently. He says smoking pot helps with his glaucoma. !!King Kai ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * AdaptationalBadass: In the series proper, King Kai notes that Vegeta and Nappa are stronger than him and leaves it to the Z-fighters to take down the dead Ginyu Warriors to showcase his training regimen. Here he lays the smack down on the ''entire'' Ginyu squad by himself. In a CurbStompBattle. * TheAloner: He thinks he's this, but he's got plenty of (unwanted) company with Bubbles, Gregory, and Bojack. * GrumpyOldMan * [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY It's Pronounced "kah-ee-oh""]]: King Kai berates Yamcha for saying "Kaio-Ken" with the now-outdated English pronunciation of "Kay-oh." * {{Jerkass}}: To Gregory, Bubbles, and Bojack at least. He's pretty short with his supposed "students", too. * AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: Popo's mind anyway. When King Kai tried to telepathically communicate with him he got a concussion. And that's just while Popo's high as a kite. Though that might explain ''why'' he got a concussion. * PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Yeah, all of you can just go straight to Hell." [[spoiler: [[DontExplainTheJoke Then he beats their spirits so hard they end up in hell.]] ]] * [[TalkingToHimself Telling Himself to Shut Up]]: With Gregory. * VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Seems to be able to connect to the Internet with his antenna. !!Dende ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler: To...

Though it's said with a heaping pile of sarcasm. * TalkingToHimself: With Super Kami Guru and Porunga. * TemptingFate: Apparently, no one told Freeza that "nobody fucks with the White Mage". * TookALevelInJerkass: Dende took '''MASSIVE''' levels of jerkass-itude in Episode 25: ** He betrayed Gohan and Krillin by revealing that they're from Earth. Why? ''[[DisproportionateRetribution Because]] [[MyNameIsNotDurwood his name is "Dende"]]''. ** While he healed Krillin after he got stabbed in the chest, he also told him he was [[ShmuckBait immortal]], possibly under the hopes that Freeza would kill him while serving as a distraction. It fails, but still... ** He does respect [[spoiler:(and has a crush on)]] Gohan, though, so it's clear his behavior is largely just retaliation for Krillin's ignorance. * UngratefulBastard: Not only does he show no gratitude to Krillin for saving and protecting him from Freeza and his forces, he actually reveals the identity of his home planet Earth to Freeza and tries to use the ButtMonkey as a distraction to lure Freeza away. All because he kept calling him "Little Green". * WhiteMage: "Nobody f$#!s with the WhiteMage." ** Ironically, immediately after saying this, he gets f$#!ed with by Freeza. [[FamousLastWords Fatally]]. *** Then when he comes back, he proceeds to both save everyone on Namek, AND screw over Freeza at the same time. Looks like he was right. !!Nail ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Hbi2k=] * AscendedExtra: Unlike in the original series, here Nail retains a mind separate from Piccolo even after fusing bodies, letting him continue as a sort of recurring character. * BeleagueredAssistant * ButtMonkey: Guru does horrible stuff to him. -->"Nail! I have a bitch of an itch on my left ass cheek!" -->"So I said, 'I don't care WHO you are! Now clean my JOWLS!' And that was Nail's first day on the job." * CasualDangerDialog: Much to Piccolo's annoyance. * DeadpanSnarker ** ServileSnarker * EarlyBirdCameo: Nail and Guru make a cameo in episode 5 to demonstrate a place duller than King Kai's planet. --> '''Nail:''' "Oh, God, this is so horribly dull! I hope something exciting happens around here soon, I don't care what it is!" ** [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Cue Freeza's arrival seven episodes later...]] * GoodThingYouCanHeal: Freeza decides to have some fun with this. * [[MyNameIsNotDurwood My Name Is Not Big Green]]: and he tells it to Krillin. --> '''Nail:''' "Call me that again and I'll ''snap'' your neck!" ** Guru called him "Big Green" out of [[BadBoss jerkassy.]] * NothingExcitingEverHappensHere: Before Freeza. He was excited about finally having a good argument with Vegeta. * OnlySaneMan: Up until he fused with Piccolo. * SharingABody: With Piccolo. * VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to be developing this with Piccolo. * WeaksauceWeakness: Whistling causes him intense pain, even when he's actually living inside someone else's head. ** Having super-sensitive hearing while inside the head of a guy with no indoor voice can also have it's downsides. !!Super Kami Guru ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * [[spoiler: AssholeVictim]]: [[spoiler: Especially after his revelation of what really happened to cause the Great Drought.]] * BadBoss: '''''Yes.''''' * TheCaligula * CallMyName: '''NAAAAAAAIL!!!''' * DareToBeBadass: Gives a speech like this to Nail in order to make him stand up to Freeza. Turns out he wasn't very sincere. * EarlyBirdCameo: Gives us a preview of his quirks in episode 5. --> '''Guru:''' "I saw a bird. It was pretty. Kick its ass." * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: When Freeza makes a crack about a slug, Guru exclaims "Leave my brother out of thiiis!" as Slug is his brother and a senile nutcase could interpret the statement Freeza made as a threat toward him. * EvenEvilHasStandards: Going by his scenes with Gohan and Freeza, he seems to draw the line at child molestation and judging people by their appearances. Not above using a MindScrew on the former though. * EvilOverlord * EvilTwin: In the Lord Slug movie, TheStinger reveals that he shares this relationship with the titular villain.

As it turns out, he is ''fully'' aware of how powerful Freeza is and that his assistant stands absolutely no chance of winning. Not to mention the fact that ''Super Kami Guru did not train him in the "New Way" that might have given him a chance of winning''. ** He ''dies'' simply because it would be "a real dick move" to kill the dragon off with him.

Of the Saiyans, posthumously. One of the main running jokes is Vegeta saying something is "worth a Raditz"; for example, this line to Krillen after he kills three of the Saibamen: --> "Congratulations, you've just killed the equivalent of the three Raditz... Nappa here is worth five Raditz, and I'm worth fifteen Raditz." * CloudCuckooLander: At least when it comes to the subject of the effects of nudity on Planet Earth. * CompensatingForSomething: [[InUniverse Piccolo comments]] that his body length wild spiky hair is compensating for the shortness of something else... * DarkChick * EvilCounterpart: Of Yamcha, actually. Vegeta hearing Yamcha's name prompts this line: --> "I don't know what this Yamcha is, but it sounds just like Raditz." * TheOtherDarrin: [=Vegeta3986=] replaces Lanipator as Raditz in ''the middle of the first episode''. ** As of ''Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged'', Lanipator has gone back to playing Raditz since [=Vegeta3986=] left the show. * ParentalNeglect: The Bardock special implies that Raditz was a victim of this. It seems like Bardock didn't pay any attention to his children and was already preparing to go off-planet just as he had been fully healed, without so much as meeting his newborn son Kakarot. When called out on his attitude, Bardock answers "Don't worry about it! I didn't pay any attention to Raditz as he was growing up either" which prompts one of the doctors to say "Yeah, and we all know how [Raditz] turned out..." After hearing that, Bardock immediately pays a visit to his son Kakarot. !!Nappa ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AffablyEvil: Even when kicking Gohan's ass, he's generally devoid of malice, and casually chats with him and Krillin. * [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: [[spoiler:He was brought back to life ever since the heroes wished everyone who was killed by Freeza's men (including Vegeta at the time) back to life.

So far, only Vegeta is able to see [[spoiler:his ghost]], which is possibly just his inner rage. --> "I think your rage broke, Vegeta." ** Possibly averted, after [[spoiler:being brought back to life, he mentions making an story about a guy who was killed by his best friend and then came back to haunt him as a ghost, proving that Ghost Nappa was real, even if only Vegeta could see him.]] !!Freeza ->'''Voiced by:''' [=LittleKuriboh=] * AppealToObscurity: He often drops the names of races that don't exist anymore, to demonstrate the fate of any that he wipes out: -->"Tell me, have you ever heard of the planet Vegeta?" -->"No." -->"Funny. I suspect people will say the same about Namek." * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking * AxCrazy: He's ever bit as violent and sadistic as in the original series. * {{Badass}}: He blocks a Kaioken empowered Kamehameha with no damage at all (compare to how in the original series where he ends up with a second-degree burn on his hand), beats up an enraged Gohan like a rag-doll with just his second form, holds his own against a Nail-fused Piccolo before deciding to get serious, effortlessly beats up a Zenkai enhanced Vegeta (who at this point is far stronger than even his Oozaru form from earth), demands '''''GOD''''' to strike him and ''came out unscathed'', tanks a massive Spirit Bomb from space with little to no damage (only having a chunk of his tail torn off), etc. Too bad VillainDecay kicked in and made him look like a joke by the Android Saga. * BadBoss: Kills his soldiers at the drop of a hat; reasons vary from "[[BlofeldPloy needing an example]]" to [[GoLookAtTheDistraction avoiding an awkward conversation]]. ** The mooks actually form a union due the rising number of their personnel exploding. Freeza's response is [[ShootTheMessenger predictable]]. ** According to Zarbon, he doesn't pay his minions since he thinks ''allowing them to live'' is payment enough. ** He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-XAzDHco1w8#t=174s kills his last remaining henchman]] for no reason other than he was the only survivor of Trunks (and then only because Trunks decided to pull a humiliation move on him instead of a kill move). --> '''Freeza''': You missed one. *rams his hand through his henchman's back until it comes through his chest* --> '''Henchman''': Lord Freeza... the f**k? *dies* * BerserkButton: Don't mess with his tail. ** Goku's [[IdiotHero idiocy]] does the job nicely. ---> '''Freeza:''' That's stupid!

Nothing to that? [[{{Beat}} ...]] Stop ignoring me! ** Later, when facing Goku: ---> '''Freeza:''' There you go again! Throwing your hands in the air, like you just don't care! CARE, DAMN IT! ** Calling him names can annoy him. And hearing Vegeta's Super Saiyan speech also gets under his skin. * BigBad: Season 2. ** BiggerBad: He was mentioned quite frequently in season 1. * [[spoiler: CameBackWrong: He's more powerful, sure, but his brain has a habit of gli-gli-gli-messing up]] * ComedicSociopathy * {{Cyborg}}: As of episode 30. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[ShootTheMedicFirst He f$#!ed with]] the WhiteMage. ** He keeps a list of how many times he's heard various heroic StockPhrases before. He's even heard [[ItMakesSenseInContext "We're going to F$*K YOUR FACE!"]] 12 times, apparently. ** And when battling Gohan: ---> '''Freeza''' Oh no! The invincible Lord Freeza defeated by a mere child! What DramaticIrony... (chuckles) [[SarcasmMode Just kidding]]. ** As of Episode 28, it's revealed that he kills children because it's just easier than waiting for them to grow up and seek revenge. He's obviously read at least some of the EvilOverlordList. ** And we have this InnerMonologue from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=JJSuUWYcZwc#t=322s episode 22]] which demonstrates that Freeza plans to use his immortality to yank the narrative chain of his subjects: ---> '''Freeza:''' So, for the first century I'll go easy on them, lure them into a false sense of security, and then when they think I'm not so bad, BAM! I'll go full tyrant on them in the second century. Then I'll disappear for a millennia and make them wonder if I even existed to begin with, just to come back and kill them all. ** And then reveals that the reason he's perfectly fine with transforming/powering up within view of everyone else is because he knows they will inevitably end up allowing him to do it, whether they want to or not. ---> '''Freeza:''' I just love how easy it is to get away with this sh*t with you people! I want to transform, you just sit there and let me! I want to blow up the planet up, you just sit there and let me!

Clearly he had been fighting with Goku long enough to know what his simplest desires are. * DeadpanSnarker: Turns against him with a vengeance in the fight against Goku, who [[ComicallyMissingThePoint horribly]] [[LiteralMinded misinterprets]] every single one of his clever one-liners. * DissonantSerenity: In his final form. Till Goku shows up. ** He seems to default to this whenever he's undergoing an overwhelming amount of hatred, shock and amazement. * TheDreaded: Much like in the original series, anybody that knows him is terrified of him, and with [[KnightOfCerebus good reason]]. * EvilBrit: Courtesy of LittleKuriboh. * [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil Cannot Comprehend Stupid]]: He asks Goku this "How do you function?!" * EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: In addition to finding his personal beating of Nail funny and his killing of Goku's best friend Krillin hilarious, he tells jokes about Namekian genocide. --> '''Freeza:''' How many Namekians does it take to change a light bulb? The entire race. One to change the bulb, and the rest to die! And then that one dies as well. * EvilIsHammy: During his VillainousBreakdown, believe it or not. --> '''Freeza:''' (to Goku) You think that you're this so-called Super Saiyan, that you're better than me?! ''Lord Freeza''?! '''WELL, YOU'RE NOT'''!! I OWN YOU! I OWN YOUR PLANET! I OWN '''THIS''' PLANET! In fact (powers up death ball) '''''FUCK''''' '''THIS PLANET'''!!! * EvilOverlord * EvilSoundsDeep: After his transformation. Think about Yami Yugi. Now think about Season 0's Yami Yugi (who is sadistic and evil as hell). Now amplify that about 20x and you have form 2 Freeza. Unfortunately... ** SnakeTalk: It devolves into this upon transforming into his third form. With even more of a Marik-like inflection and a German accent to boot. But, thankfully... *** VocalEvolution: At the end of episode 26 when he reaches his final form, his voice becomes somewhere in-between his first and second forms. He has the tone of the first form, but the smooth sound of the second. * [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racist]]: Even moreso than in the original series. -->'''Freeza:''' I can't believe we came all the way out here and spent a week in the space boonies for nothing!

Still managed to cheer him up, though. * IJustWantToBeSpecial: Says this verbatim to explain his [[InformedAbility somewhat flimsy]] claim of being "the fastest in the universe", because without it, he's just "that big blue snake guy." ** And it's later revealed that this is why Ginyu had him on the team: a tall blue guy to balance out Jeice's short red guy. * InferioritySuperiorityComplex * MotorMouth * SmugSnake: Comes of as this at first about his supposed unrivaled speed, but it turns out he's actually a lot more insecure and self-critical than he first appears. * SssssnakeTalk * [[spoiler: StraightGay]]: According to Guldo.

Then things go bad. * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Jeice is genuinely dismayed at Burter getting curb stomped by Goku, and spends much of the episode Burter gets thrashed in cheering him up over his not being the fastest in the universe. * TheLancer / TheDragon: Reports directly to Ginyu. * LandDownunder: The FUNimation dub gave him an exaggerated Australian accent [[UnexplainedAccent for no real reason]] (especially since the original Ocean dub voice ChristopherSabat was imitating had been ''Liverpudlian''), but in this series it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because his home planet is [[SpaceX Space]] Australia (more specifically, he's from Space Brisbane. Go, Space Broncos!). * LongHairedPrettyBoy * OhCrap: After realizing Sayians get stronger when they recover from near death, and that Vegeta nearly died when fighting Recoome. -->'''Jeice:''' Well I'm right f[bleep]ked, aren't I?\\ '''Vegeta:''' [[PreMortemOneLiner Right in the down under]]. * TheReliableOne: Burter considers him the only one on the team that can be relied on. * StepfordSmiler: He gets very upset after Burter dies, but puts a lid on it when Ginyu demands him to be professional. * VerbalTic: The word 'mate' tends to appear a lot when he talks. !!!Recoome ->'''Voiced by:''' Ganxingba * {{Badass}} * TheBigGuy[=/=] TheBrute: Obviously. * BloodKnight * BoisterousBruiser: All the way. * BreadEggsMilkSquick: A list of the Recoome Memorabilia; Baseball hat, t-shirt, keychain, action figure, purse, jock strap, and vibrator. * CallingYourAttacks: Recoome's tendency to both do this and name all his moves after himself is canon (even "Recoome Eraser Gun", as of Kai), but, of course, it gets lampshaded. -->Recoome: RECOOOOOOME--\\ Krillin: Does every move you have start with--?\\ Recoome: KICK!

When the Ginyus were talking about the last time they [[ADateWithRosiePalms ...you know]], Recoome comments he didn't even have enough room in his pod. ** In episode 29, Guldo helps him up by pulling on his "middle leg". * HamToHamCombat: Has a minor one against Vegeta. * LargeHam: In keeping with the original series. Recoome takes it ''way'' past the source material, however, with his ProfessionalWrestling personality. * NoSell: "Silly Vegeta, the only thing the Recoome sells is merchandise" * ShoutOut: To HulkHogan specifically, but to ProfessionalWrestling as a whole. Mainly wrestlers from the AttitudeEra or shortly after, if not Hogan. ** His tendency to refer to himself in 3rd person also likely a reference to TheRock. * SimpletonVoice: Surprisingly averted with Recoome, who is instead professional wrestling personified. * TestosteronePoisoning * ThirdPersonPerson: Sounds good to Recoome! * WrestlerInAllOfUs !!King Cold ->'''Voiced by:''' Hbi2k * AbusiveParents: An (offscreen) conversation between Cooler and Goku hints at this.

He then goes to call Space AAA. ** Lessened somewhat when Freeza says that he can fly the ship, only for him to reply that they don't fly themselves, that being a job for their minions. * RageBreakingPoint: [[BlatantLies Wants nothing nefarious with Trunks' sword, just to inspect the craftsmanship and admire the temper.]] And test the edge out on him. * ShoutOut: His first appearance is one to the end of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', with Freeza as Vader and Cold as Palpatine. * SissyVillain * UpperClassTwit: "Son, we do not fly ourselves, flying is for the help!". * TranquilFury: Has an increasingly obvious one after [[spoiler:Future Trunks kills Freeza.]] !!Garlic Jr. ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (''The Dead Zone Abridged''), [=KaiserNeko=] (Season 3) * BigBad: Of the Garlic Jr saga and the earlier ''Dead Zone Abridged''. ** [[spoiler: BigBadWannabe: In spite of the build up to the arc and his new threatening persona, he gets assimilated into Mr. Popo.]] * BullyingADragon: He mouths off to Popo, [[spoiler: which either gets him killed or suffer an AndIMustScream / FateWorseThanDeath punishment.]] * [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation: Arrives on Kami's Lookout along with his minions, and starts running his mouth... to '''Popo'''.

He serves "Lord Popo", and awaits his command to [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt lay waste to the humans.]] * OnlySaneMan: He notes that, with the Dragon Balls, you have ''serious'' potential to stop a later threat, and even gave out wishes. And when he discovered he was granting their wish ''again'' in the Christmas Special... * TalkingToHimself: With Krillin and Mr. Popo. !!Gregory ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * ButtMonkey: Gets beaten with a mallet a lot. * OnlySaneMan: Points how Earth could meet its end if Goku loses againts Vegeta while everybody was taking on bets. * TalkingToHimself: With King Kai. !!Bubbles ->'''Voiced by:''' Christopher Robin Miller (''Lord Slug'' only), his monkey sounds are done by Hbi2k * SuddenlyVoiced: Talking Movie Bubbles in ''Lord Slug Abridged''. * TheUnintelligible: Due to being a monkey. !!Bojack ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] * CatchPhrase: "Yarr!" ** PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Bojack!" * EarlyBirdCameo: Assuming TFS abridges ''Bojack Unbound'' somewhere down the line. * SealedEvilInACan: Canonically, Bojack was sealed away inside a star in an unknown location, but here, he's explicitly inside King Kai's planet. * TalkLikeAPirate: The canon Bojack was merely described as a "thug", though he wore flamboyant clothes like a pirate or gypsy. The ''DBZA'' Bojack is explicitly called a SpacePirate and speaks with an exaggerated pirate accent. Yarr! !!King Yemma ->'''Voiced by:''' Ganxingba * CloudCuckooLander * DistractedByTheSexy: Next, strip. Next, strip.

Yajirobe ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] -->''You gonna eat that Saiyan?

Including dead aliens. ** A DeletedScene reveals that he came to the battlefield because he smelled Yamcha's body cooking, and he even considered [[ImAHumanitarian eating it]].

The Namekians do teach him to speak English later on, though. * BenevolentGenie: Granted Dende six wishes to save time, since Dende said they were just simple resurrections and they'd call him back in four months anyway. He was a little peeved when Dende tacked on an entire planet, but rolled with it. * GoodCounterpart: To Shenron, although they act rather similar. Whereas Shenron is very jaded due to the same people taking up his time every year, Porunga is a bit more about mild passive aggression than flat out spite. * HumansAreUgly: His opinion of Earthlings. * LiteralGenie: You must be specific in your wishes to Porunga. * MundaneFantastic: He has a rather "Yeah, whatever," approach to this whole "giant wish-granting [[SpaceX Space Dragon]]" thing. * TalkingToHimself: With Dende. !!King Vegeta ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Among the Sayians.

[[spoiler: However, as it was revealed to be AllJustADream, the canocity of this to the DBZA universe is debatable.]] * DisappearedDad: To Raditz. (And Kakarot/Goku, but seeing how he was kinda dead at the time...) * MercyKill: Accepts the "sweet embrace of Death" upon having a vision of the future... and seeing the [[Anime/DragonBallGT Para Para Brothers]]. * MythologyGag: When showing two mooks how to "traumatize a village" in the credits, one of them calls Bardock a "brilliant scientist" and he also says he's planning to create an artificial moon. Both are referencing the early dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' by Ocean Group, which has Vegeta claiming Bardock did both despite having no basis in the original script. * PlayingAgainstType: Takahata101 as a sane character wherein he often plays a PsychoticManchild, whether the characters in question are the protagonist, VillainProtagonist, or antagonist. * PsychicPower: And they're [[UselessSuperpowers worthless]]. -->"Useless-ass psychic powers!" * SayMyName: "FREEZA!" * VillainProtagonist !!Bardock's crew ->'''Selypa voiced by:''' [=Whiteash001=] ->'''Pumbukin voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] ->'''Toma voiced by:''' Ganxingba ->'''Totepo voiced by:''' [=Kirbopher15=] * ButchLesbian: Selypa, or that's what [[JerkAss Bardock]] thinks. * ShipperOnDeck: Pumbukin suggests that Selypa's the mother of Bardock's kid.

Then he gets eaten in ''Lord Slug Abridged'', and again in ''Revenge of Cooler'' (the end credits roll over a dragon-shaped skeleton in the latter). * DroppedABridgeOnHim: In ''Lord Slug'' he has a whopping ''one'' scene before Gohan's family ''eats him''. But... ** UnexplainedRecovery: He shows up again in ''The Revenge of Cooler''. Being non-canon has its perks. Goku eats him again at the end. * EarlyBirdCameo: His first appearance is in a flashback in episode 10, where he's shown tumbling away from an explosion (that apparently killed him). * EatTheDog: In ''Revenge of Cooler'', Goku calls Icarus his "emergency food".

Still trying to kill him, though. * AvengingTheVillain: The only reason he would be on Earth to kill Goku in the first place, however, it's obvious Cooler isn't doing it out of love for his little brother. * {{Badass}}: He's stronger than his brother, and gives Goku a sound thrashing before the latter turns Super Saiyan. * BenevolentBoss: Played to a lesser extent than in the original, where he seems to care for his minions. Here, he threatened to tie them to the bumper of his ship if Goku wasn't found dead. However, he ''does'' sign their paychecks, unlike Freeza, who considers payment to his minions to be allowing them to live. * BigBad: Of ''Revenge of Cooler'' ** BiggerBad: He was mentioned by Freeza and Ginyu a few times in season 2 (the latter saying he outranked Freeza), and is the most powerful member of the Cold family by far.

He apparently ties them to the bumper of his ship. ** Leads to DeathByGenreSavviness as he spends a lot of time near the end contemplating what he's going to do to avert his fate instead of actually averting his fate. * DeadpanSnarker: Cooler's a lot more casual about the whole "evil planetary overlord" thing than his brother, preferring offhand remarks to Freeza's ego-stroking one liners. * DeathByGenreSavviness: [[spoiler: He has a momentary lapse in judgement when Super Saiyan Goku starts to deflect his ultimate attack.

It gets him blasted into the sun.]] * EarlyBirdCameo: He briefly appears at the end of ''Bardock: Father of Goku''. * EvilIsPetty: Cooler lets baby Goku's space pod escape the destruction of Planet Vegeta just to spite his brother. Because, in his own words, "I'm a prick." ** Retconned in ''Revenge of Cooler Abridged'', where he states that if Freeza's going to whine to their dad for control of the sector, he'll have to accept the responsibility. If it comes back to bite him, it's his own fault. Naturally, Cooler called it. * EvilOverlord * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Invokes this in regards to Freeza. He could have destroyed Goku's pod on its way to Earth, but decided not to as a lesson to Freeza in responsibility. Then it turns out to be true for him, too. * InsistentTerminology: Cooler is a prick. * {{Irony}}: He let baby Goku live as a lesson to Freeza, only for Goku to kill them both. * {{Jerkass}}: According to Freeza. Oddly enough, he doesn't act like a douchebag in Revenge of Cooler. He treats his minions slightly nicer than Freeza and is AffablyEvil towards Goku. ** On the other hand, he did let Goku live to spite Freeza and ordered Ginyu to perform the "Daddy's Little Princess" dance to Freeza on every successful mission. So Freeza would be justifiable in calling him a prick, from his own perspective. * MotiveDecay: Compare with the original movie, he doesn't even give a reason as to why he wants to kill Goku. The only reason likely is that he wants to prove he's better than Freeza. ** He implies that he went after Goku simply because he was bored and thought it would be a good way to kill time. * NotSoDifferent: Realizes that in letting Goku escape and letting him just block his ultimate attack, he acted little different than his despised brother Freeza. But at least he's still cooler. * PunnyName: Goku makes a pun about it when they first meet. So does Salza, though he seemingly does it unintentionally. Even Cooler himself gets in on it during his demise. -->'''Cooler''': ''(while burning in the sun)'' I really am I just like my brother [...] but at least I know... I'm... still ...cooler.... ''(dies)'' * TheOtherDarrin: [=KaiserNeko=] decided not to reprise his role for ''Revenge of Cooler'' because he felt he couldn't give the character the proper "majesty", so TFS got [=GeneralIvanVA=] to play the role instead. * RatedMForManly: Unlike his [[SissyVillain Daddy Little Princess]] brother who comes from [[AmbiguousGender planet androgynous]] Cooler has a deep voice and a more masculine appearance. * ShoutOut: His super form sounds just like Bane from ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''. -->'''Cooler:''' When your planet is in ashes... then you have my permission to die. ** As he transforms into his super form: --->'''Cooler:''' [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Tonight I dine on monkey soup.]] *** CelebrityImpersonator: His transformed voice also brings Kevin Michael Richardson to mind. * SiblingRivalry: With Freeza. He instructed Captain Ginyu to perform the "Daddy's Little Princess Dance" after every successful mission for Freeza. ** When he prepares his planet-killing death ball, he pauses for a moment to ask Goku if Freeza did the same. When Goku confirms that he did, but used a smaller one (that also failed, but Goku didn't mention that), Cooler gloats and then throws the death ball. * SophisticatedAsHell: "IMMA PLANT ME A DUMBASS TREE!" * TheUnfavorite: He hints at this during an off-screen conversation with Goku. Though like his 'canon' self, he is a lot stronger than his brother (being the only member of his family who could defeat a Super Saiyan, just not the one he fought) and seemingly outranks him in the empire, so it's not known why. * WouldHurtAChild: -->'''Cooler (to Goku):''' Oh, is that your son? -->'''Goku:''' ...Yeaaah? -->'''Cooler:''' Imma kill it. !!Cooler's Armored Squadron ->'''Doore voiced by:''' [=XTheDarkOne=] ->'''Neiz voiced by:''' Lanipator ->'''Sauza voiced by:''' Antfish * ActorAllusion: To the Japanese version, where Zarbon and Sauza not only fill similar roles, but actually shared the same voice actor in Z (ShowHayami). * AssKickingPose * TheBrute: Doore. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While not nearly as savvy as Cooler[[note]][[NoOneCouldSurviveThat He immediately assumes Goku is dead just from getting shot in the back and falling over a waterfall]][[/note]], Sauza correctly assumes the bag of Senzu beans Gohan is carrying must be important because he's risking his life to protect it, and burns it accordingly. * TheDragon: Sauza. ** DragonTheirFeet: Sauza makes one last attempt to kill off Goku and company after Cooler is beaten. * DumbMuscle: Doore, though Piccolo stated that they're all stupid. * EarlyBirdCameo: Briefly appear alongside Cooler at the end of ''Bardock: Father of Goku''. * EveryoneIsRelated: Sauza is Jeice's cousin. * EvilBrit: Doore, though he's more of a Cockney-sounding thug than the usual posh villain. * FrenchJerk: Sauza. * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Neiz gets brought down by his own ShockAndAwe attack when he makes the mistake of getting close enough for Piccolo to reach him. -->'''Piccolo:''' Gotcha, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]! * QuirkyMiniBossSquad: Quite reminiscent of the Ginyu Force, as Goku points out. -->'''Goku:''' I am having the worst case of deja mustard[[note]]déjà vu[[/note]] right now. * SeeYouInHell: Suaza says this as his last words: -->'''Sauza:''' I will see you... in [[SpaceX Space Hell]]... Cousin Jeice. * ShownTheirWork: Details regarding Sauza appear to be derived from material originally published in ''Weekly Jump'' when the movie first came out in Japan. According to background materials from the actual film, Sauza's home planet is Cooler Planet 98 (formerly known as Planet ''Brench''), and he and Jeice come from the same binary star system. * TheUnintelligible: Neiz. !!Chilled -> '''Voiced by:''' Ganxingba * BigBad: For "Episode of Bardock". * CloudCuckooLander: He proclaims that [[MythologyGag all his men will be named after fruit and his elite warriors will have to learn dance choreography]]. ** When Bardock attacks him, instead of being angry that this worm dared to attack the great Lord Chilled, he's angry that Bardock wants to wrestle with him but didn't bring his leotard. * EvilIsHammy: His high pitched voice and CloudCuckooLander tendencies don't help. * EvilOverlord: Seems to run in the family. * LargeHam: Particularly when he's preparing to finish off Bardock. -->'''Chilled:''' And now yououou dieeeeeeeeeeeeeee! * LiteralMinded -->'''Bardock:''' You mad, bro? -->'''Chilled:''' A little! Thank you for asking! * SissyVillain: Maybe even more so then Zarbon. Also seems to run in the family. * TrrrillingRrrs * VocalDissonance: His voice is hilariously high-pitched and brings [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Mrs. Featherbottom]] to mind. * WouldHurtAChild: Again, seems to run in the family. !!People of Planet Plant [[spoiler:aka Primitive Saiyans]] -> '''Voiced by:''' Lanipator * BizarreAlienBiology: Bardock kicking one gets it pregnant. ** [[spoiler:They're a species that can only propagate through violence.

As in, he wanted to know where the ''real'' fighters were. ** Annihilates Lord Slug's goons in under two minutes. ** Effortlessly deflects ''every single shot'' from Freeza's BeamSpam. *** All while, unknowingly, outright ''taunting'' the guy. ** Beats up Freeza in considerably less time than in the source material.[[note]]This version cut out Goku's supposed death and subsequent Gohan segment, to just having him knee Freeza in the face out of nowhere[[/note]] ** BadassBoast: "I'm going to break you... like a Kit-Kat bar" * BadLiar: ** He spilled the beans to Chi Chi about him and Gohan going to found the androids instead of going on camping. -->'''Gohan:''' Three years, dad. Three years. You almost got it. ** And, if it wasn't for Piccolo to stop him in time, he would have spilled the beans about there being more innocent people on the island to the androids. * BaconAddiction: It ends up killing him in Trunks' timeline. See TrademarkFavoriteFood below for more details. ** He also keeps bacon in his pockets. * BerserkButton: ** "YOU NEVER WASTE FIGGY PUDDING!" (Christmas Tree of Might) ** Also, "Nobody... rapes Christmas!" (Lord Slug) ** And in Episode 30, part 2: "That wasn't a pizza... THAT WASN'T A PIZZA AT ALL!" ** Don't threaten his friends, especially Krillin, whom he cares for deeply. He will bring the pain if you do. ** If Revenge of Cooler is any indication, needlessly harming animals is one as well, although he did refer to Oolong and Icarus as emergency food. ** DON'T imply that you can have "too much bacon." He'll go Super Saiyan if you do. * BloodKnight: He didn't care what Freeza was capable of, he just wanted to beat him up. ** [[spoiler: He stops the fight with Freeza in episode 30 part 2 because he was getting bored.]] ** He's looking forward to fighting the Androids, as he feels he hasn't gotten a good fight since Freeza. * BrickJoke: Muffin button. Suprisingly enough, it ''saved'' his life as explained in episode 34. * BunnyEarsLawyer: His idiocy is exaggerated beyond belief. He's still TheAce for the Z Warriors, and a constant [[BigDamnHeroes big damn hero.]] * CannotKeepASecret: Tells Future Trunks this. Though he swears on Krillin's (but changed to Bulma's) life to keep Trunks' secret. * CatchPhrase: "[[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Bored now.]]" * CharacterExaggeration: Made out to be much dumber than his original character. * CharacterizationMarchesOn: Seems to be in the making with regards to his relationship to Gohan. Before Episode 27, he has been a somewhat attentive father to Gohan. As of Episode 27, he makes conversation with Krillin, Piccolo, and Vegeta while he responds to Gohan's "Hey Dad!" with a disinterested "Hey". ** In ''The Revenge of Cooler'', he completely forgets about Gohan's existence, talking about how, if he had a son, [[{{Irony}} he would be sure to treat him better than Freeza and Cooler were]]. Though, he still [[TakingTheBullet jumps in front of the death ray]] to save him in the same special. It's probably just a matter of [[RuleOfFunny whatever's funniest at the time]]. * ChildhoodBrainDamage: Goku fell on a rock head-first when he was still a child. And he's noticeably more ditzy and absent-minded than his canon self. * DeathByIrony: In Trunks' timeline, Goku's death is caused by heart failure from high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. * DefeatMeansFriendship: Certainly thinks this way about Vegeta, who outright defies it. * DumbBlonde: {{Inversion}}. Goku is usually quite the idiot, but when he goes Super Saiyan and as such blonde, he becomes much smarter compared to his actual intelligence. Emphasis on compared to his normal intelligence. ** The twist is that while he's indeed smarter and uses the correct words, he mispronounces them very often. -->'''Freeza''': That's not the problem, you idiot! [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace I can breathe in space]]! -->'''Goku''': But space is a ''vacumm''! ** Slips back into played straight when he sees Trunks become into a Super Saiyan -->'''Goku''': What happened to your hair? It's yellow!! -->'''Trunks''':... So is yours. -->'''Goku''': It is!? *** Though this may be justified because Goku cannot see see his changes as a Super Saiyan. * EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the two abridged DBZ movies that Lanipator, [=Vegeta3986=], and [=MasakoX=] made before Team Four Star came together, Goku was a lot smarter and a ''major'' {{Jerkass}}. * GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Not-so subtly implied between him and his wife Chi-Chi in ''Christmas Tree of Might'' -->'''Goku:''' Well, what am I getting for Christmas?\\ '''Chi-Chi:''' The same thing as last year, Goku.\\ '''Goku:''' Oh, so that thing you do with your mouth...?\\ '''Chi-Chi:''' NOT IN FRONT OF GOHAN! ** And later in the same special: ---> '''Goku''' ([[InternalMonologue thinking]]): Oh, man! If Chi-Chi finds out about this, I might not get mouth present. * ImAHumanitarian: His explanation for how he learned instant transmission. * {{Malaproper}}: While he's smarter as a Super Saiyan he trips over words a lot more than usual. * {{Manchild}}: Like you wouldn't ''believe''. -->'''Ginyu:''' How's that wound treating you? -->'''Goku:''' This is easily the ''second''-worst hole I've ever had in my chest. It's gonna take, like, a million Mommy-kisses to make it better. * MotivationalLie: Uses one on a transformed Gohan in season 1 to get Gohan to concentrate on Vegeta. He's also had them used on him a few times, notably when King Kai tells Goku he has to save Christmas during the Lord Slug movie. * ObliviousToLove: Sorta. He thinks Chi-Chi is just a lady who lives in his house - he might not understand what a wife ''is''. This might be a ShoutOut to the fact that when Goku originally proposed to Chi-Chi he thought marriage was a food. * OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Generally acts smarter than usual during his desperate Spirit Bomb plan and is also smarter than usual when he becomes a Super Saiyan. ** Also slightly noticeable in a few of the movies / specials, since they're non-canon and all. * PapaWolf: Despite frequently neglecting his son, whenever Gohan's in danger, about to be killed or on the verge of death, Goku [[LetsGetDangerous gets serious]]. * ParentalNeglect: The series plays up the fact that Goku is a terrible father, to the point that Gohan's attempt to envision [[WhatWouldXDo what Goku would do]] is merely a short flashback of Goku saying "Bye, son!". He also left Gohan, who was crashed in the snow, to go driving with Piccolo. ** There's this little gem from episode 28: --->'''Goku:''' ''Wow. [Gohan] sounds like he's had a hard time. Piccolo should really have a talk with him.'' * SmartBall: That's right. He has his moments. ** The first is in Episode 2, where Raditz called Piccolo a Namekian, and Goku told him that [[MythologyGag Piccolo's race has not been explained yet]]. ** In the same episode, Goku explains eating a Senzu bean will not work because he has a hole in his esophagus (after getting a hole blasted in his chest in his HeroicSacrifice to kill Raditz). ** Fooling Goz and Mez into telling him where the exit is without having to take them up on their challenges. ** Another is when he managed to fool King Kai into thinking he hung up on his psychic link by [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud saying "click beeeeeeeeeeee *GASP* eeee-"]] ** He gets a few moments of brilliance in Episode 28, which he thanks [[OrsonWelles his brain]] for. ** Remembers the whole "five minutes" thing with the Special Beam Cannon when [[spoiler:Piccolo stalls Freeza while he charges the Spirit Bomb.]] ** He gets a noticeable increase in intelligence when he goes [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]]. He tells Gohan to take Piccolo and Bulma back to Earth to bring back everyone else, and allows Freeza to reach his maximum power so when he beats him in under five minutes, he'll be too "demormalized" to threaten anyone else (that and Freeza offered him pizza, which was the real reason). *** Of course, Goku is so dumb that even his intelligence-boosted Super Saiyan form is ''still'' a moron. * SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: You wouldn't believe how often. Very noticeable when he becomes a Super Saiyan. -->'''Goku''': "Gohan, take Piccolo, find Bulma, and get back to the ship. -->'''Gohan''': "But what about you?" -->'''Goku''': "If Piccolo dies, then all of this was pointless! Take him, get to the ship, and get out of here!" -->'''Gohan''': "[[LampshadeHanging This is surprisingly well thought-out for you."]] -->'''Goku''': *getting increasingly angry* "Gohan!? Where should you be right now!?" -->'''Gohan''': "The ship?" -->'''Goku''': "THE SHIP!!" ** Slams right back to silliness after he tells Freeza he's going to break him... like a Kit-Kat bar. * StupidityTropes: Oh, good lord, yes. He makes [[Franchise/DragonBall the real Goku]] look like a genius. ** AchievementsInIgnorance: -->'''Dr. Briefs''': "You're incredibly lucky I already set the coordinates for Namek, but you... you... where did you get that muffin?" -->'''Goku''': "Muffin button." -->'''Dr. Briefs''': "But, I... never installed a muffin button." -->'''Goku''': "Then where did I get this muffin...?" ** CloudCuckooLander: Lets get started... *** Wonders if Piccolo's a Yoshi, thinks that sarcasm is food, and asks if the moon is made of cheese. *** Half the time when he's fighting, he doesn't even understand that he's in a fight. He just... ''does things.'' Which badly hurt his opponents. *** In episode 27, he unknowingly delivers a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to ''Freeza''. *** In episode 34, when Goku finds out that Bulma is Trunks' mother, his first reaction is to be amazed at how old he's gotten in the year and a half since Goku assumes he must have been born. The impossibility of Trunks' existence never crosses his mind. ** DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm: "[[IsItSomethingYouEat What does that taste like?]]" *** It actually drives both Vegeta and Freeza into the throes of a VillainousBreakdown. ** IdiotHero: '''''Yes.''''' ** LiteralMinded: Good Lord, YES. So much that it drove Vegeta and Freeza [[VillainousBreakdown insane]]. Look how Goku got Freeza tripped up when they first met: --->'''Freeza:''' Unfortunately Vegeta and I were having a disagreement: He wanted himself to live and, well, I didn't.\\ '''Goku:''' Why do you want to die? *** And again while Super Saiyan. ---->'''Freeza:''' Will you just piss off already!?\\ '''Goku:''' I don't have to use the bathroom! ** StupidGood: An innocently nice guy, and just as stupid to boot. ** TooDumbToLive: He actually kept letting Freeza go during their fight. ** TookALevelInDumbass: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to his brain damage with his fight with Vegeta. Perhaps he ''did'' hit his head harder than he thought. * TalkingToHimself: Like the original Japanese version, he and Gohan share the same voice actor, [=MasakoX=]. * TrademarkFavoriteFood: '''''[[BaconAddiction Bacon.]]''''' Instead of being killed by a heart virus in Trunks' timeline, he is instead killed by a heart attack caused by high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. When Trunks tells him the the medicine he gave him is [[BlatantLies bacon flavored]], Goku is overjoyed. ** In his opinion, the best idea he's ever had is a sandwich with bacon instead of bread. Krillin also believes that Goku's favorite food is the Double Baconator. !!Gohan ->'''Voiced by:''' [=MasakoX=] * {{Adorkable}}: Acknowledged as such in Dragon Ball Kai Abridged: -->'''Goku:''' I have a kid. -->'''Gohan:''' I'm socially awkward. -->'''Krillin:''' He's adorable! * {{Badass}} ** BadassAdorable ** BadassBoast: Prone to giving them, and usually has the power and skill to back it up. The problem is, he's usually facing someone a lot stronger than he is, leading to an OhCrap moment. ** BadassBookworm: Taken UpToEleven from the original franchise. Also see SesquipedalianLoquaciousness. * BerserkButton: Never hurt Goku, Piccolo, or innocent elders/children. He will wreck you. * BewareTheNiceOnes: TAKE THAT, YOU INSUFFERABLE F*CKING SIMPLETON!! * BreakTheCutie ** TraumaCongaLine * CallingTheOldManOut: In Episode 23, even if it wasn't really his dad he was saying it to. ** But Goku was there and did overhear it. (Even if he didn't understand..) ** And half of it wasn't even Goku's fault. * CatchPhrase: ** "Crapbaskets!" whenever things get bad. ** "...I need an adult..." ** PhraseCatcher: "I ''AM'' an adult", in response. Alternatively, "''NEEEEEEEERRRRDD''" and "'''DODGE!!'''", mainly from Piccolo. * CrossdressingVoices: Averted with his younger self, who's been cast as a girl in nearly every official dub for the series. * DynamicCharacter: He starts out much more naive than in the original franchise. Flash forward to the Season 2 Finale, when casually threatens to ''drop [[ItsAllAboutMe Bulma]] to her death'' if she doesn't quit [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]]. * EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He's one of the most intelligent characters these days, but back in the Dead Zone Abridged movie, he needed schooling to know ''how many fingers a fish had.'' ** [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation That may well]] be his lack of [[NoSocialSkills social skills]], and him making a StealthPun: Fish fingers, anyone? * HulkSpeak: Engages in a little of this after Freeza supremely pisses him off by [[spoiler:nearly killing Krillin.]] * MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: As in the original series, he can sense things. But in the season 2 finale, he looks upon a ship and mentions he senses a "dark force" inside. [[spoiler:Cue his mother rushing out demanding to know where Gohan is.]] * OnlySaneMan: For the heroes. * ParentalIssues: Episode 23 reveals that Gohan holds a lot of pent up resentment towards Goku for being a neglectful parent. He lets it out on Ginyu while he's in Goku's body, and it slowly starts slipping out afterward. ** In a twist of irony, while [[Anime/DragonBallZ in the canon series]] the thought of Ginyu looking like Goku made him not able to fight at full strength, in Abridged it just motivated him even further. ** He also has issues with his mother's controlling and domineering behavior and snaps on her shortly before leaving for Namek. * ParentalNeglect: Goku has been out fighting/training/dying for so much of Gohan's life that when he tries to picture something Goku would say, all he can get is Goku saying goodbye to him. * PintSizedPowerhouse * PrecisionFStrike: Usually drops an F-bomb when enraged usually combined with... ** SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: He's called "Nerd" by Piccolo for this. * SanitySlippage: Being dragged into violent, nightmarish battles and having [[ParentalNeglect Goku]], [[EducationMama Chi-Chi]]'s and [[DrillSergeantNasty Piccolo]] [[AbusiveParents as parents]] has begun taking a serious toll on his mind. * SophisticatedAsHell: The result of combining the previous two tropes. * TalkingToHimself: With Goku. * UnstoppableRage: Even more emphasized than it was in the original. Gohan's got issues. * WiseBeyondTheirYears !!Krillin [[spoiler:Sanchez]] ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator * ADayInTheLimelight: Stars in Episode 31, where things finally start going his way. [[spoiler:Then the feds show up...]] * AsTheGoodBookSays: [[RuleOfFunny Despite being a Buddhist.]] * AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Goku considers Krillin to be his best friend and Krillin's death is what causes Goku to go Super Saiyan. ** When Krillin thinks Sauza has destroyed the only means of saving Goku's life in ''Revenge of Cooler'', he goes nuts and launches a hopeless attack on Sauza. ** When Trunks revealed he was a Super Saiyan to Goku, Goku remembered what had happened to trigger his initial transformation and immediately started asking if Krillin was OK and refused to talk about anything else until he was given an answer. This is very telling of their friendship because Krillin's welfare got [[CloudCuckoolander GOKU]] to stay focused on something. * BringMyBrownPants * ButtMonkey: Lampshaded with "The Krillin Owned Count". * [[spoiler:ButNotTooForeign[=/=]{{Fauxreigner}}: Krillin looks Tibetan[[note]]in the original series he was trained in a (supposedly) Buddhist temple, wore Buddhist garments, and even has forehead dot burns like Buddhist monks[[/note]] but his surname is Sanchez, meaning he's Latino.]] * CallingMeALogarithm: When Nappa points out the Namekian in the group (referring to Piccolo), Krillin takes offense. Piccolo immediately corrects him and tells him how stupid his reaction was. * TheChewToy * ComicallyMissingThePoint: He doesn't pick up on the fact that Dende doesn't like being called "Little Green" despite Dende repeatedly saying "My name is Dende" in response, nor does he realize that no one likes the name Team Three Star (including himself) even though Vegeta repeatedly threatens him over it. Gohan has to say it outright for both of these. * DirtyCoward: Shows some shades of this. * InsuranceFraud: Because he took a large policy out on himself and named [[spoiler:his "brother", who is just himself under a different name, as the beneficiary, it is this trope.]] * ItsAllAboutMe: So terrified of dying or being hurt that his empathy for other people is a little delayed. * NiceJobBreakingItHero: In spades, whether out of [[DirtyCoward fear]] or [[IdiotBall stupidity]]. ** Bulma calls Krillin out on this when he hands a dragon ball over to Vegeta. Of course, this is [[HairTriggerTemper Vegeta]] we're talking about, [[JustifiedTrope so it's quite justified on his part]]. ** He also cannot shut up when he is scared, informing Vegeta about the potential-unlocking Super Kami Guru, telling Captain Ginyu where the majority of dragon balls are located (right behind him, to be fair), screaming out loud about Goku's "secret" attempt to defeat Freeza (the latter thankfully had no idea what he was talking about), and '''[[SubvertedTrope almost]]''' dropped Earth's name as their home planet to [[TheSociopath Freeza]] (only for [[JerkAss Dende]] to spill it himself)). ** In fact, it's because of Krillin's mistreatment of Dende (always calling him "Little Green" and berating him for mourning his deceased family) that he dropped our planet's identity to the intergalactic evil space emperor. ** Also unwittingly causes one for himself when he reveals to Marin he committed insurance fraud. [[spoiler: Turned out Marin was a government agent assigned to get a confession out of him.]] * TheNicknamer: "Little Green!" Dende's attempts to correct him fall on deaf ears. ** And to Nail: "Big Green!" Nail didn't appreciate it, and made that fact clear. * NoIndoorVoice: When scared. * NoSell: For all that he's an OvershadowedByAwesome ButtMonkey and treated as a weakling by other characters, Krillin has managed the NoSell a few times. He was immune to the lasers or whatever fired at him by the people running from Freeza, and Guldo was clearly surprised when Krillin barely reacted to having a steamroller dropped on him. -->'''Krillin:''' What the hell was that?!\\ '''Guldo:''' ...that... was supposed to crush you. * OvershadowedByAwesome: Frequently lampshaded, and the former TropeNamer. Well, at least he's stronger than [[TheArtifact Yamcha]]. And [[StarterVillain Raditz]]. * PhraseCatcher: "Krillin! TooSoon!" * TalkingToHimself: With Vegeta, Piccolo, and Mr. Popo. And more. !!Piccolo ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/piccoshi_7773.png]] [[caption-width-right:350:"I'm not a god-damn Yoshi!"]] * {{Badass}}: Always has the attitude, can't always back it up. But when he does, it's memorable, especially in the Lord Slug movie. * BerserkButton: [[DetonationMoon STOP MOCKING ME!!]] * BigDamnHeroes: When he shows up during the fight with form 2 Freeza after having fused with Nail, complete with [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Magus' battle theme playing]][[note]]Magus being a similar character designed by Creator/AkiraToriyama[[/note]]. He then proceeds to send Freeza flying with a single punch. ** In the Lord Slug movie he shows up to save Gohan while the theme song of StoneColdSteveAustin plays, and one mook asks if he's {{Batman}}. It's hard to find a bigger damn hero than that. ** In the Lord Slug movie, he also lampshades his tendency to do this. -->'''Piccolo''': ''(while TakingTheBullet for Gohan)'' WHY CAN'T YOU SAVE YOUR OWN DAMN SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELF!? * ButtMonkey: Obviously not as much as Krillin or Yamcha, but shows signs of this from time to time, especially around other Namekians. * {{Catchphrase}}: '''"DODGE!!!"''' * DeadpanSnarker: Frequently, though he does it in rapid succession in the Lord Slug movie. -->'''Piccolo:''' And that, no doubt, would make you the big, tough, stupid one.\\ '''Dordabo:''' You take that back or I'll kill you.\\ '''Piccolo:''' All right, all right, you're not tough.\\ '''Dordabo:''' That's better.\\ {{Beat}}\\ '''Gohan:''' Wait, didn't you--\\ '''Piccolo:''' Give him a minute.\\ {{Beat}} {{Beat}} {{Beat}}\\ '''Dordabo:''' ...[[LateToThePunchline Hey!]] You son of a bitch!

But if I had to pick [a gimmick] I'd say I'm the pretty one.\\ '''Piccolo:''' Meh. 6 out of 10.\\ '''Angira:''' You sassy bitch. * DetonationMoon: STOP MOCKING ME!! ** MOOOOOOOOOOON!!! * ForgotICouldFly: When it comes to his ability to stretch his arms. -->'''[[SharingABody Nail]]''': Huh, I didn't know we could do that. -->'''Piccolo''': Yeah, I forget about 'em sometimes too. * GenreSavvy: In the Lord Slug movie: -->That would make you [[TheDarkChick the weird one with the freaky powers]], and that would make ''you'' no doubt [[TheBrute the big, tough, stupid one]]. ** Happens again in the Cooler movie, but the ones he was categorizing were too stupid to realize which one each of them were. * GoodIsNotNice: UpToEleven from the original * HeroicSacrifice: Like in the original, he shielded Gohan from Nappa's attack and died. Lampshaded due to the fact that he realized he could just grab him, and save them both. -->''Alright, it's time to redeem myself. Through one final act of redemption, I'll save Gohan an- wait a second, why didn't I just grab him? I can probably still do that now, actually. Yeah, that's it, I'll grab him, and '''throw''' him out of the wa--'''[[KilledMidSentence AAAARRRRRGH!]]''''' * HomelessHero: Nail suggests he buys one, but he can't and won't get a job. * IJustWantToHaveFriends: He agrees to aid Goku in the first episode when Goku offers to friend him on MySpace ("Tom, you've been replaced!") and his first words upon spotting Nail are "SOCIAL ACTIVITY!" He even admits to being quite desperate for friends; he does cut himself off, but far too late. When Tien states rather bluntly that he has no friends in ''Bald This Way'', he actually runs off the set in tears. * IneffectualLoner: Zigzags this with IJustWantToHaveFriends. He becomes even more ineffectual a loner after Nail starts sharing his head. --> '''Nail''' So, you wanna go hang out with our race? --> '''Piccolo''' No. ** As of episode 34 he seems to being grown out of this, having developed something of a friendship with Goku. He covers for Goku's idiocy not once, but twice, and also goes with Goku to race cars. * {{Jerkass}}: During the first time he talked to Gohan, before his HeelFaceTurn was cemented. "Hate to tell ya, kid. But your dad's '''DEAD!'''... Actually, I kinda like saying that. HA HA! YOUR DAD'S DEAD!" ** Piccolo's become more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold in the later episodes, when he was healed by Dende on Earth, the first thing he did when he woke up was call out for Gohan. * LargeHam * SharingABody: With Nail. * SinkOrSwimMentor: To Gohan. The first thing he did as the kid's mentor was to throw him at a giant rock formation so he (Gohan) could break it. [[HilarityEnsues He crashes into the formation and starts bawling.]] --> '''Piccolo:''' ''(walking over to a crying Gohan, annoyed)'' ''[[TrainingFromHell This is going to be a loooooooooooooong training session.]]'' * SuperSenses: His hearing is good enough for him to have heard Goku and Trunks' whole conversation despite being a few hundred yards away. * TalkingToHimself: With Vegeta and Krillin. * TheSmartGuy * VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to be developing this with Nail. The relationship seems to form a weird symbiosis. Piccolo finally has someone to fill his social void and Nail finally has someone he can bicker with. * WeaksauceWeakness: Just as in canon, it turns out in ''Lord Slug Abridged'' that WHISTLING causes intense pain and discomfort to Namekians. But only if they can hear it. --> "WHAT?!" * TheWorfEffect: Just as in the original series, and particularly in the specials. Piccolo shows up, makes an incredibly badass showing of taking out the minions, and then gets utterly trounced by the BigBad. !!Vegeta ->'''Voiced by:''' Lanipator [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vegetarage_8659.png]] [[caption-width-right:350: [[RageBreakingPoint Rage breaking in 3...2...1...]]]] * {{Angrish}}: Frequently lapses into this. ** After killing Dodoria and Zarbon, Vegeta goes to the spot where he hid the Dragon Ball... it's not there. Vegeta couldn't even speak Angrish properly after that. * AtomicFBomb: Episode 10. * AuthorityInNameOnly: As Bulma notes, being the Prince of all Saiyans doesn't mean much if there are [[LastOfHisKind only two]] Saiyans left![[note]]Though Gohan is half Saiyan and unbeknownst to Bulma, Nappa got resurrected.[[/note]] --> '''Vegeta''': ''[[LameComeback Three and a half!]]'' * {{Badass}}: Put it this way; when Vegeta landed on Namek, he was weaker than Freeza's top henchmen. By the end, he's killed all of Freeza's minions, and tries taking on the boss man himself. Vegeta gets extra points for [[DefiantToTheEnd continuing to mouth off to Freeza]] after [[CurbStompBattle a particularly savage beating]], so much that Freeza decided to shoot a beam through his lung to finally kill him. * BadassBoast: Both played straight and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] on a regular basis. * BerserkButton: [[BrickJoke Don't thwart his plans]]. ** And Anime/DragonBallGT. He kills Vegeta Jr (one of the Saibamen), and snaps upon hearing the theme song. ** He also hates weaklings and the color pink. ---> '''Tien''' Hey Vegeta.\\ '''Vegeta''' What?\\ '''Tien''' [[RealMenWearPink Nice shirt]].\\ '''Vegeta''' AND THERE IT IS! ** Almost anything Nappa does has to count too. * BigBad: Season 1 (The Saiyan Saga) * BigNo: Has several of these. ** Most notable one was the introduction of GHOST NAPPA! * BelligerentSexualTension: A HUGE case of this with Bulma, until they did the deed in Episode 34. Quickly made hilarious when Bulma (and the audience) discover that he has absolutely ''no idea'' what a condom is?! * BloodKnight: A requirement on the Saiyan résumé. He shoots down Bulma's suggestion of murdering the creator of the Androids (although he does love how she phrased it) because he's as excited at the chance of fighting them as Goku is. * BondOneLiner: Against Cui. --> "God, I love therapy". * BreakTheHaughty: Freeza makes him cry, "[[PreAsskickingOneLiner Like a little bitch]]," in episode 27 * BreakingTheFourthWall: In Episode 9. Nappa is being extremely stupid and gave Vegeta a brain aneurysm out of "sheer stupidity", so Vegeta breaks the fourth wall by muttering "9 minutes 18 seconds," over and over, (The episode was 9:42 seconds long, they were 24 seconds in). When Nappa asks what happens when they reach that time, Vegeta replies: "The happiest moment of my life". (which was Nappa's death) * ButForMeItWasTuesday: He doesn't even remember Yamcha. Until he recognizes him as "that scrub that got killed by a Saibaman". * CallingYourOrgasms: "Gallick... gun... ''FIIIIRRREEEEEE''!!!" ** TheGruntingOrgasm: Also, literally ''fires a Galick Gun'' when he climaxes. * CardCarryingVillain: Goku just wouldn't get it otherwise. --> "I'M F**KING EVIL." --> "Don't care. Evil." --> "[[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Renegade for life]].'' ** It's also used to poke fun at the [=FUNimation=] dub's changes to Vegeta's characterization (and specifically, his death speech). --> '''Goku:''' If it weren't for Freezer you wouldn't be- --> '''Vegeta:''' Dying? No. --> '''Goku:''' I was gonna say "evil". --> '''Vegeta:''' Oh, no, I'd definitely still be evil. If this situation were reversed, this conversation would never have happened. You'd be dead, and I'd be laughing. * CatchPhrase: "Goddamn it, Nappa!" ** "F*ck you!" seems to be one as well. * CharacterExaggeration: While he doesn't get as much as some characters, he's a lot less restrained than his original characterization. * TheChewToy: But it's mostly mentally unlike Krillin or Yamcha. * CosmicPlaything * CultureClash: When Bulma asked if he had "protection" and to wear it when they had sex, he made sure to wear his battle armor. * CryCute: Episode 27, much like the original, when he realizes that his strongest attack is barely worth Freeza's notice. Almost a TearJerker, given Lanipator's ''amazing'' voice acting. * EvenEvilHasStandards: It's more an issue of horrible spectacle than morality, but even Vegeta is given pause when [[spoiler: the Namekians slaughter Guru.]] ** In a more comedic sense, [[spoiler:he's only willing to live with Bulma if there's a pool.]] * EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor / PoliticallyIncorrectVillain --> '''Goku:''' That was in terrible taste!\\ '''Vegeta:''' Don't care! Evil! * GutturalGrowler: Lampshaded in Blooper Special: -->'''Lanipator''': Why did I have to be cast as the loudest, screamiest, most raspy-voiced character? * HairTriggerTemper: Throughout season 2, Vegeta has been steadily losing his cool more and more. * IJustWantToBeSpecial: He's always going on about the Saiyans being the greatest fighters in the universe, and he's completely and utterly obsessed with becoming a Super Saiyan. ** [[spoiler: To the point there Freeza kills him mid-sentence just because he's sick of hearing the Super Saiyan speech.]] ** Taken into overdrive after the arrival of Future Trunks, leading Vegeta to repeatedly ''[[InsistentTerminology insist]]'' that he's [[BlatantLies a Super Saiyan]], but no-one buys it! * IncrediblyLamePun: Is quite prone to unintentionally delivering these. * {{Jerkass}}: "By the way, I only hit you because I have pent-up aggression against your father. Take that." After kneeing Gohan in the stomach in Episode 18. * KnowWhenToFoldThem: The end of Season 1, after stopping Gohan's Oozaru form backfires. -->"Crushed and broken beneath an unconscious, naked child. Yep, I think I'm done here." * LightningBruiser: His Oozaru form, unfortunately for Goku. * LoveableRogue: Self-entitled; he describes himself as a "handsome, dashing rogue". * ManChild: Has shades of it... probably because he spent too much time with Nappa. --> [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo "Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, MIIINEE!"]] ** One of the convention extras reveals Nappa's PsychopathicManchild persona is a result of the childhood trauma of his parents' death. And what happens to Vegeta at age five? * TheNapoleon: -->'''Jeice:''' Not that short, Captain.\\ '''Ginyu:''' Oh don't go all 'Vegeta' on me. * OnlySaneMan: When compared to the likes of [[TooDumbToLive Goku, Nappa,]] or the [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad Ginyu Force]]. ** Although it seems his time with Nappa and Krillin is beginning to take its toll on his sanity. * OutOfClothesExperience: What he thought death entailed, only that was just King Yemma tricking him. * ParentalIssues: In Episode 10. -->'''Vegeta:''' "You...you cut through my armor! This was a gift from my father!"\\ '''Yajirobe:''' "I'm sorry, I'm sure your father was a great man!"\\ '''Vegeta:''' "[[BerserkButton I HATED my father!]]"\\ '''Yajirobe:''' "Oh, well then, I'm sure your father was a total prick."\\ '''Vegeta':''' [[HairTriggerTemper "HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT MY FATHER LIKE THAT!"]] * PintSizedPowerhouse: He's a good deal shorter than several characters. Lampshaded by Nail in Episode 18: -->'''Nail:''' "Bring it on, all 4 feet of you! ''Or should I count your stupid hair''?" * PreAsskickingOneLiner: Against Jeice; -->"G'day, mate." ** And against Ginyu --->'''Ginyu:''' At least I'm not trapped in a useless body.\\ '''Vegeta:''' Gimme a minute. * PreMortemOneLiner: Has several in Season 2. --> "Let me put it to you in a way you'll understand: I'm about to blow my load all over your insides [...] No homo". * RealMenWearPink: Although he hates every minute of it: -->'''Vegeta:''' ''[Upon sensing Freeza]'' Son of a bitch!\\ '''Yamcha:''' What, still ticked off about the shirt?\\ '''Vegeta:''' NO, I--well, yes, actually, I'm absolutely livid. * RedEyesTakeWarning: In Episode 18, he apparently bursts a blood vessel in one of his eyes when Gohan pulls one over on him and Ghost Nappa shows up to torment him, causing it to go red. The other follows suit shortly after. ** His eyes also glow red in Bulma's [[spoiler: rape-fantasy]]. * ScrewThisImOutOfHere: ** After being beaten in Episode 10: -->'''Vegeta:''' Crushed and broken beneath [[ItMakesSenseInContext an unconscious, naked child]]. Yep, I think I'm done here. ** [[spoiler:In Episode 35, when Bulma tells him to get a job and help raise Trunks, he flees into space in a Capsule Corp ship a year and a half before the fight with Dr. Gero and Android 19.]] * ShyBladder: Used as an excuse to get out of fighting Ginyu, while Goku explains. Later, while taking a nap, he wakes up suddenly shouting "I HAVE TO PEE!" And then later, Freeza taunts him by asking when he graduated from Pull-ups. * StraightMan: To Nappa, and the others sometimes as well. * SurroundedByIdiots * TalkingInYourSleep: A dream he has while unconscious leads to [[ShoutOut "My power is]] [[MemeticMutation maximum..."]] --> "First immortality, then the bitches." * TalkingToHimself: With Krillin and Piccolo. * TemptingFate: Any time Vegeta says "There's nothing you can do about it!"... something's going to get done about it. * UnstoppableRage: His [[TheScream moment]] in Episode 18. * VerbalTic: Has a frequency to say "god damn it" even without Nappa around. * VillainProtagonist: Of Season 2 (The Namek Saga) ''without question''. * VillainousBreakdown: In episode 10 during his fight with Goku. Part of it is because Vegeta is losing to Goku, the other part is [[IdiotHero making sense of Goku]]. !!Future Trunks ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * {{Adorkable}}: Badass, but adorkable nevertheless. He gets hilariously awkward when meeting Goku. * {{Badass}}: Kills Freeza and King Cold in less than a few minutes like in the original manga.[[note]]Like in the manga, he only had 3 pages worth in killing Freeza than in the anime and ''Kai, where his fight with Freeza was considerably longer[[/note]] ** And before that, DiagonalCut combined with YouAreAlreadyDead on all of Freeza's mooks (Minus one, but Freeza finishes him off anyway just because). Apparently he's been practicing getting it ''just'' right for 3 months. ** Should being able to ''traumatize'' Freeza count?[[note]]When Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan in front of Freeza, the tyrant reacts by comparing him to Goku (complete with him saying "Pizza"), Freeza immediately tries to kill him and the planet[[/note]] * BadassBoast: "If it's a Super Saiyan you're looking for, I can fill the part." Cue doing so while King Cold and Freeza are arguing during his transformation. * CoolShip: If episode 34 is anything to go by, Trunks' time machine? It's a TARDIS. * CoolSword * CurbStompBattle: If you knew the source material, then it's inevitable. * DeadpanSnarker: All throughout his fight with Freeza, every other line that came out of Trunks' mouth was pure snark. * DiagonalCut: Justified and Explained; apparently, he's been practicing that for a few months. Also, it's not as easy as they make it look. * EarlyBirdCameo: Made an appearance in episode 18, where he heard his father's scream all the way from Namek, two decades into the future. * EstablishingCharacterMoment: See Badass above? He does all that in his introductory episode. * FutureBadass: His EstablishingCharacterMoment cements it. He, much like his source counterpart, annihilates all but one of Freeza's squad just by cutting them with his sword. * HeroicBastard: He was born from Vegeta and Bulma's UnresolvedSexualTension and the fact that Vegeta doesn't know what a condom is. When Bulma told Vegeta she was pregnant and asked him to get a job to support her, his reaction was to immediately take off into space. * LightningBruiser: Catches and lifts Freeza's Death Ball [[NoSell with one hand]], fast enough to escape its explosion when Freeza blows it up, and strong enough to slice Freeza to pieces with his sword, not to mention [[BarehandedBladeBlock catching said sword]] when King Cold tried to use it against him. * OnlySaneMan: While he still has some comical quirks, he's still competent, smart, and relatively serious. * PreMortemOneLiner: "HEY FREEZA, YOU SHOULD SPLIT!!!" ** "Actually, that pretty much sealed it." And this is when he shoots through King Cold. * PostMortemOneLiner: "So. How many points are those?" * ScreamingAtSquick: After Bulma makes a pass at him, even saying he can call her "mommy". On the surface, he still manages to keep a straight face, but internally he is screaming bloody murder. * YouFightLikeACow: And he'll keep repeating the joke until you get it. [[/folder]] [[folder:Supporting Characters]] !!Bulma ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Megami33=] * BelligerentSexualTension: With Vegeta. * TheChick * DemotedToExtra: {{Lampshaded}} * HotMom: In episode 35. ** GlamorousSingleMother: Since Vegeta want to space, [[spoiler: running away from the responsibility]], a year and a half ago. * ItsAllAboutMe: When Yamcha contacts her from King Kai's planet, she dumps him for not contacting her in months (ignoring the fact he's dead reasoning he's doing it now so why not before?) and while talking with Yamcha invites Vegeta to her home to stay there. ** Then again, he did cheat on her back in the first episode. * NeutralFemale: To her chagrin: --> "Those bitches on [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime]] might put up with it, but not me!" * NiceJobBreakingItHero: Telling Lord Slug about the Dragon Radar. * OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: KILLING CRABS! IN THE OCEAN! * TheTease: Spends the entire month-long trip to Namek walking around the ship in her underwear, to Krillin's chagrin. !!Yamcha ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (Season 1), Faulerro (Season 2) * BringMyBrownPants: In episode 32. * ButtMonkey / TheChewToy: ''Definitely'' more than Krillin. In the second F.A.Q. special, the characters specifically say they pick on Krillin so much because Yamcha doesn't show up as often. --> '''Bulma''': No one screws Yamcha but life. ** CharacterizationMarchesOn: Surprisingly, he used to be considered TheAce. In-universe, anyway. * DefeatMeansFriendship: Averted. He's the ''only'' one who's bothered that Vegeta, the man who is in some way responsible for most of their deaths at one point or another, is taking a shower in the next room and moving in with Bulma. * DirtyCoward: In Episode 32 when Vegeta is laughing at him for losing to a Saibaman: -->'''Yamcha:''' Oh, yeah? I dare you to come over here and say that!\\ ''[Vegeta jumps in front of Yamcha]''\\ '''Vegeta:''' ''[Low and threatening]'' Ha. Ha. Ha.\\ '''Yamcha:''' ''[Nervously]'' See how we can all laugh together?\\ ''[When Bulma is leading Vegeta to the showers]''\\ '''Yamcha:''' ''[Internal monologue]'' Yeah, you better run. * [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: In Future Trunks' timeline, where he hangs himself after learning that Vegeta got Bulma pregnant.]] * FakeUltimateHero: In the first season, the rest gets a morale boost by Yamcha simply showing up on the battle field. And then he gets one-shotted by a Saibamen. * TheFriendNobodyLikes: Everyone looks down on him. Except Goku as of Episode 34, since he learned his [[DrivenToSuicide fate]] in Trunks' timeline. * GivingUpOnLogic: When Goku starts trying to "reason" with the [[WorldTree Tree of Might]] and the tree appears to answer, Yamcha gives up in disgust. * KilledMidSentence * LostInImitation: The line about Bulma thinking Yamcha was cheating in the first episode is based on Funimation DubText. In the original Japanese dialogue, Bulma is mad at Yamcha in the beginning of DBZ for canceling a date. Possibly lampshaded by Krillin. * NeverFoundTheBody: Or rather, they never looked for it at all. --> '''Yamcha''': Where did you bury me anyway? --> '''Bulma''': ''Bury?'' * PersonAsVerb: Getting Yamchaed means getting killed unceremoniously. -->'''Goku:''' Oh no! Yamcha got Yamchaed! * OneHitWonder: He sang a cat food song for a commercial since he needed the money. [[NeverLiveItDown Now everybody listens to it when Yamcha just wants to forget about it]]. * NoRespectGuy: To the point where you think TFS hates him. * TheOtherDarrin: [=Vegeta3986=] no longer voices Yamcha after leaving the series. As of Episode 28, he's now voiced by [[NullmetalAlchemist Faulerro]]. * PhraseCatcher: "I don't know what this 'Yamcha' is, but it sounds..." * RunningGag: For several episodes after [=Vegeta3986=] left TFS, whenever Yamcha is about to speak someone cuts him off, cementing his ButtMonkey status. * ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler: Goku convincing him not to kill himself. He's genuinely touched by somebody ''not'' treating him like shit.]] !!Tien[[note]]referred to by his Japanese name, Tenshinhan, on a few occasions[[/note]] and Chiaotzu ->'''Tien voiced by:''' Ganxingba ->'''Chiaotzu voiced by:''' Whiteash (Episode 6), [=Megami33=] (Current) * BerserkButton: Tien is ''very'' defensive with FandomBerserkButton related matters. -->''F*cking Weeaboos.'' * TheComicallySerious: As summed up in the abridgement of the abridged series' first season: --> "I am the only serious character in this show. That is the joke." ** Although he did join in on "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". * DeadpanSnarker: At least when Vegeta is involved. The first thing he does when the group meets up to fight Freeza is comment on [[RealMenWearPink Vegeta's shirt]], and then spends most of episode 34 mocking Vegeta about not being a Super Saiyan. All with a straight face. * HeHadAName: --> "You stupid... ugly... son of a bitch! His name was CHIAOTZU!" * HeroicSacrifice: Chiaotzu... but ended up being a SenselessSacrifice. ** In a variation from the original, Chiaotzu starts out thinking that he can just be revived by the Dragon Balls. Tien has to point out he's been revived once already... mere moments before Chiaotzu explodes. * HeterosexualLifePartners * HoYay: InvokedTrope As a running gag. * InformedJudaism: Parodied in ''Christmas Tree of Might''. * {{Jerkass}}: Chiaotzu, as shown in the FAQ Special. ** Tien as well in the "Born This Way" parody--he manages to ruin the song ''and'' make Piccolo run off set crying in less than 30 seconds. * KnowWhenToFoldThem: When the fight with Nappa starts disastrously, Tien seriously considers grabbing Chiaotzu and running. Unfortunately, Chiaotzu had already gotten involved in the fight and was going for a TakingYouWithMe attack. * MistakenForGay: Constantly. * TheOtherDarrin: Chiaotzu was voiced by Whiteash in episode 6; afterward, Megami33 took over. * SayMyName: "CHIAOTZUUUUUUUUUU!" * TakingYouWithMe: Chiaotzu tries to do this to Nappa. It didn't work. At all. * TeamDad: Tien, at least to Chiaotzu. !!Chi Chi ->'''Voiced by:''' Krisrix (briefly in Season 1), Hnilmik (Current) * AbusiveParents: Not exactly, but this little tidbit from "Christmas Tree of Might" may play on fans' suspicions: --> '''Gohan:''' SantaClaus's just gonna bring me books again...\\ '''Chi-Chi (threateningly):''' He brings you what you like! And '''''what''''' do you like?!\\ '''Gohan (scared):''' I like books! * AxCrazy[=/=]BewareTheNiceOnes: Though not as creepy and scary as Mr. Popo, Chi-Chi is still feared amongst the male characters, especially Krillin[[note]]he likes his penis where it is, thank you[[/note]] --> '''Krillin:''' Hypothetically... what would you do if you were told that your husband was dead and his son was kidnapped by his worst enemy?\\ '''Chi Chi:''' I'd castrate the messenger in his sleep '''''with a rusty carving knife'''''.\\ '''Krillin:''' Ohh...

You were lost in God only knows in space, refuse to let the dragon took you on and the first thing you ask where you're back?

After founding that Goku and Gohan are actually going to fight the androids, her scream can be heared while the two guys and Piccolo are already flying away. * EducationMama: "You read it, you learn it, you love it!" * EvilSoundsDeep: She isn't evil but she was the "dark force" Gohan felt when he saw a ship coming to them, and her first words are '''"Where is MY baby!?"''' in a deep, terrifying voice after coming out. * MyBelovedSmother: To Gohan. * NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Almost has one in ''Lord Slug Abridged'' when she charges into battle and takes out one of Lord Slug's mooks with the 'Housewife Style Kick Of A Thousand Menstrual Cycles'. --> '''Chi Chi:''' You see, just because I'm a woman-''*Promptly punched in the face by another mook*''\\ '''Bulma:''' ...That actually lasted longer than I expected. * TheOtherDarrin: Krisrix in an episode from Season 1; voiced by Hnilmik from that point onward. * StepfordSmiler: Type C.

But I'll never say it flat out.'' * CatchPhrase: Hiiiiii. ** Pecking order * DarkIsEvil: He's one of the scariest people in the show, enjoys the suffering of others, and despite being possibly the most powerful person on the show, doesn't lift a finger to stop the assorted villains from wreaking havoc unless that havoc just included his marijuana patch. He's nominally on the heroes' side. ** And Creator/TeamFourStar does like to emphasize that his skin is dark: --->'''Krillin, on Namek:''' Actually, what I meant to say was, when you make a wish on the Dragon Balls, the sky turns ''darker than the blackest void!''\\ '''Mr. Popo, on Earth:''' Hmm? * TheDreaded: When Goku, who has defeated foes with Worlds destructing abilities, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Krillin]] and even the ''creators of this history'' fear you, you are a badass. * DrillSergeantNasty: "Shut up maggots!" and "All right, maggots, listen up!" * EvenEvilHasStandards: He would never torture... cats. * EvilLaugh: Done twice.

Of course, he was high as balls at the time, which may have had something to do with it. ** Also, he replaces the sun after it is accidentally blown up in ''Revenge of Cooler''. ** According to the pecking order, the Z-Warriors (and likely everyone else in the universe) are below the dirt, which is the next most pitiful thing to him. Who is the only exception to this order? '''Kami'''. Granted, he's still below Popo, but he's higher than everyone else, including Popo's ''stool''. * PhysicalGod: Goku blew up the sun in ''Revenge of Cooler''. Popo put it back. * SadistTeacher: Heavy emphasis on the sadist part. * ScaryBlackMan * TalkingToHimself: With [[ButtMonkey Krillin]], [[JackassGenie Shenron]], and [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jynx]]. * TheStoner: Apparently the only way Kami keeps him even ''slightly'' under control. --> I'm so f***ing high right now! * TokenEvilTeammate !!Kami ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (Season 1), [=WeeklyTubeShow=] (Season 2-current) * CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his earlier appearances--and especially the pre-Team Four Star ''Dead Zone Abridged''--the main joke for Kami was that he was painfully old and spoke with an exaggerated wheeze. After [[TheOtherDarrin his voice actor was replaced]], he was given a more normal voice and was portrayed as a DeadpanSnarker. * DeadpanSnarker: After he came back to life. Part 1 of episode 30 has him throwing a ''lot'' of snark at King Kai. It makes sense when you remember that [[spoiler: he ''is'' Piccolo's other half.]] * DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Smokes pot with [[HumanoidAbomination Popo]]. Possibly the basis of their... friendship? * NoRespectGuy: "You know, I am the Guardian of Earth. Can I please get a little more respect here?" * NumberTwo: Right below Mr. Popo on the Pecking Order. Whether he's TheLancer or TheDragon depends on how you view Popo. * TheOtherDarrin: Voiced by [=Vegeta3986=] in Season 1, and by [=WeeklyTubeShow=] afterward. * RetiredBadass: The Z-Warriors go to receive training from Kami in preparation for fighting Vegeta and Nappa, but since he is "quite old", he leaves their training to [[SadistTeacher Mr. Popo]]. * SelectiveObliviousness: To Mr. Popo's more brutal tendencies. ** Of course, it's not like he can ''do'' anything about it. Pecking order... * TheStoner: Apparently. He says smoking pot helps with his glaucoma. !!King Kai ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * AdaptationalBadass: In the series proper, King Kai notes that Vegeta and Nappa are stronger than him and leaves it to the Z-fighters to take down the dead Ginyu Warriors to showcase his training regimen. Here he lays the smack down on the ''entire'' Ginyu squad by himself. In a CurbStompBattle. * TheAloner: He thinks he's this, but he's got plenty of (unwanted) company with Bubbles, Gregory, and Bojack. * GrumpyOldMan * [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY It's Pronounced "kah-ee-oh""]]: King Kai berates Yamcha for saying "Kaio-Ken" with the now-outdated English pronunciation of "Kay-oh." * {{Jerkass}}: To Gregory, Bubbles, and Bojack at least. He's pretty short with his supposed "students", too. * AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: Popo's mind anyway. When King Kai tried to telepathically communicate with him he got a concussion.

Though it's said with a heaping pile of sarcasm. * TalkingToHimself: With Super Kami Guru and Porunga. * TemptingFate: Apparently, no one told Freeza that "nobody fucks with the White Mage". * TookALevelInJerkass: Dende took '''MASSIVE''' levels of jerkass-itude in Episode 25: ** He betrayed Gohan and Krillin by revealing that they're from Earth. Why? ''[[DisproportionateRetribution Because]] [[MyNameIsNotDurwood his name is "Dende"]]''. ** While he healed Krillin after he got stabbed in the chest, he also told him he was [[ShmuckBait immortal]], possibly under the hopes that Freeza would kill him while serving as a distraction. It fails, but still... ** He does respect [[spoiler:(and has a crush on)]] Gohan, though, so it's clear his behavior is largely just retaliation for Krillin's ignorance. * UngratefulBastard: Not only does he show no gratitude to Krillin for saving and protecting him from Freeza and his forces, he actually reveals the identity of his home planet Earth to Freeza and tries to use the ButtMonkey as a distraction to lure Freeza away. All because he kept calling him "Little Green". * WhiteMage: "Nobody f$#!s with the WhiteMage." ** Ironically, immediately after saying this, he gets f$#!ed with by Freeza. [[FamousLastWords Fatally]]. *** Then when he comes back, he proceeds to both save everyone on Namek, AND screw over Freeza at the same time. Looks like he was right. !!Nail ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Hbi2k=] * AscendedExtra: Unlike in the original series, here Nail retains a mind separate from Piccolo even after fusing bodies, letting him continue as a sort of recurring character. * BeleagueredAssistant * ButtMonkey: Guru does horrible stuff to him. -->"Nail!

Kick its ass." * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: When Freeza makes a crack about a slug, Guru exclaims "Leave my brother out of thiiis!" as Slug is his brother and a senile nutcase could interpret the statement Freeza made as a threat toward him. * EvenEvilHasStandards: Going by his scenes with Gohan and Freeza, he seems to draw the line at child molestation and judging people by their appearances. Not above using a MindScrew on the former though. * EvilOverlord * EvilTwin: In the Lord Slug movie, TheStinger reveals that he shares this relationship with the titular villain.

As it turns out, he is ''fully'' aware of how powerful Freeza is and that his assistant stands absolutely no chance of winning. Not to mention the fact that ''Super Kami Guru did not train him in the "New Way" that might have given him a chance of winning''. ** He ''dies'' simply because it would be "a real dick move" to kill the dragon off with him. Yes, that's right.

Of the Saiyans, posthumously. One of the main running jokes is Vegeta saying something is "worth a Raditz"; for example, this line to Krillen after he kills three of the Saibamen: --> "Congratulations, you've just killed the equivalent of the three Raditz... Nappa here is worth five Raditz, and I'm worth fifteen Raditz." * CloudCuckooLander: At least when it comes to the subject of the effects of nudity on Planet Earth. * CompensatingForSomething: [[InUniverse Piccolo comments]] that his body length wild spiky hair is compensating for the shortness of something else... * DarkChick * EvilCounterpart: Of Yamcha, actually. Vegeta hearing Yamcha's name prompts this line: --> "I don't know what this Yamcha is, but it sounds just like Raditz." * TheOtherDarrin: [=Vegeta3986=] replaces Lanipator as Raditz in ''the middle of the first episode''. ** As of ''Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged'', Lanipator has gone back to playing Raditz since [=Vegeta3986=] left the show. * ParentalNeglect: The Bardock special implies that Raditz was a victim of this. It seems like Bardock didn't pay any attention to his children and was already preparing to go off-planet just as he had been fully healed, without so much as meeting his newborn son Kakarot. When called out on his attitude, Bardock answers "Don't worry about it! I didn't pay any attention to Raditz as he was growing up either" which prompts one of the doctors to say "Yeah, and we all know how [Raditz] turned out..." After hearing that, Bardock immediately pays a visit to his son Kakarot. !!Nappa ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AffablyEvil: Even when kicking Gohan's ass, he's generally devoid of malice, and casually chats with him and Krillin. * [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: [[spoiler:He was brought back to life ever since the heroes wished everyone who was killed by Freeza's men (including Vegeta at the time) back to life.

So far, only Vegeta is able to see [[spoiler:his ghost]], which is possibly just his inner rage. --> "I think your rage broke, Vegeta." ** Possibly averted, after [[spoiler:being brought back to life, he mentions making an story about a guy who was killed by his best friend and then came back to haunt him as a ghost, proving that Ghost Nappa was real, even if only Vegeta could see him.]] !!Freeza ->'''Voiced by:''' [=LittleKuriboh=] * AppealToObscurity: He often drops the names of races that don't exist anymore, to demonstrate the fate of any that he wipes out: -->"Tell me, have you ever heard of the planet Vegeta?" -->"No." -->"Funny. I suspect people will say the same about Namek." * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking * AxCrazy: He's ever bit as violent and sadistic as in the original series. * {{Badass}}: He blocks a Kaioken empowered Kamehameha with no damage at all (compare to how in the original series where he ends up with a second-degree burn on his hand), beats up an enraged Gohan like a rag-doll with just his second form, holds his own against a Nail-fused Piccolo before deciding to get serious, effortlessly beats up a Zenkai enhanced Vegeta (who at this point is far stronger than even his Oozaru form from earth), demands '''''GOD''''' to strike him and ''came out unscathed'', tanks a massive Spirit Bomb from space with little to no damage (only having a chunk of his tail torn off), etc. Too bad VillainDecay kicked in and made him look like a joke by the Android Saga. * BadBoss: Kills his soldiers at the drop of a hat; reasons vary from "[[BlofeldPloy needing an example]]" to [[GoLookAtTheDistraction avoiding an awkward conversation]]. ** The mooks actually form a union due the rising number of their personnel exploding. Freeza's response is [[ShootTheMessenger predictable]]. ** According to Zarbon, he doesn't pay his minions since he thinks ''allowing them to live'' is payment enough. ** He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-XAzDHco1w8#t=174s kills his last remaining henchman]] for no reason other than he was the only survivor of Trunks (and then only because Trunks decided to pull a humiliation move on him instead of a kill move). --> '''Freeza''': You missed one. *rams his hand through his henchman's back until it comes through his chest* --> '''Henchman''': Lord Freeza... the f**k? *dies* * BerserkButton: Don't mess with his tail. ** Goku's [[IdiotHero idiocy]] does the job nicely. ---> '''Freeza:''' That's stupid!

Nothing to that? [[{{Beat}} ...]] Stop ignoring me! ** Later, when facing Goku: ---> '''Freeza:''' There you go again! Throwing your hands in the air, like you just don't care!

The invincible Lord Freeza defeated by a mere child! What DramaticIrony... (chuckles) [[SarcasmMode Just kidding]]. ** As of Episode 28, it's revealed that he kills children because it's just easier than waiting for them to grow up and seek revenge. He's obviously read at least some of the EvilOverlordList. ** And we have this InnerMonologue from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=JJSuUWYcZwc#t=322s episode 22]] which demonstrates that Freeza plans to use his immortality to yank the narrative chain of his subjects: ---> '''Freeza:''' So, for the first century I'll go easy on them, lure them into a false sense of security, and then when they think I'm not so bad, BAM! I'll go full tyrant on them in the second century. Then I'll disappear for a millennia and make them wonder if I even existed to begin with, just to come back and kill them all. ** And then reveals that the reason he's perfectly fine with transforming/powering up within view of everyone else is because he knows they will inevitably end up allowing him to do it, whether they want to or not. ---> '''Freeza:''' I just love how easy it is to get away with this sh*t with you people! I want to transform, you just sit there and let me! I want to blow up the planet up, you just sit there and let me!

Till Goku shows up. ** He seems to default to this whenever he's undergoing an overwhelming amount of hatred, shock and amazement. * TheDreaded: Much like in the original series, anybody that knows him is terrified of him, and with [[KnightOfCerebus good reason]]. * EvilBrit: Courtesy of LittleKuriboh. * [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil Cannot Comprehend Stupid]]: He asks Goku this "How do you function?!" * EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: In addition to finding his personal beating of Nail funny and his killing of Goku's best friend Krillin hilarious, he tells jokes about Namekian genocide. --> '''Freeza:''' How many Namekians does it take to change a light bulb?

Now think about Season 0's Yami Yugi (who is sadistic and evil as hell). Now amplify that about 20x and you have form 2 Freeza. Unfortunately... ** SnakeTalk: It devolves into this upon transforming into his third form. With even more of a Marik-like inflection and a German accent to boot. But, thankfully... *** VocalEvolution: At the end of episode 26 when he reaches his final form, his voice becomes somewhere in-between his first and second forms. He has the tone of the first form, but the smooth sound of the second. * [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racist]]: Even moreso than in the original series. -->'''Freeza:''' I can't believe we came all the way out here and spent a week in the space boonies for nothing!

I [[PetTheDog already tried to keep them alive]], but all they do is grow up under my rule or dedicate their pathetic lives to revenge--[[BreakTheFourthWall usually both]]--really [[MercyKill killing them is a kindness]], I can retract that kindness if you wish, but then who's the villain?" ** Not to mention the one child we see him kill directly was [[{{Jerkass}} Dende]]. * YouAreNumberSix: Reinforces his BadBoss treatment of his men by adressing one {{Mook}} as "Minion 43". Then using said mook for TheBlofeldPloy. ** Applies it on a planetary scale, every planet he acquires gets renamed Freeza Planet (number). !!Zarbon ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * BrainlessBeauty: Although he's quite competent in a fight, Freeza has to sometimes slowly spell things out for him and explain the implications of his actions. * [[spoiler: CampStraight]]: Though Freeza and Vegeta aren't convinced. * DoubleEntendre: Lives off these. * TheDragon: To Freeza. * GirlfriendInCanada: Freeza would bet her name is Chuck. * LockedOutOfTheLoop: Has ''no clue'' that people think [[spoiler: he's gay]]. * [[spoiler:MistakenForGay]] * NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Says this verbatim when he's convinced Vegeta is gay. * PunchClockVillain[=/=]TrappedInVillainy: Possibly.

Though Burter is apparently gay according to Guldo, albeit without any apparent romantic interest in Jeice. * LaughablyEvil * QuirkyMinibossSquad: And even quirkier than their source counterparts. * ShowWithinAShow: They set up a TV segment called Wheel of Death... while deciding who gets to kill who. ** Also, Namekimania. * {{Sympathetic Murderer}}s: While they are a squad of hired killers, they are the most sympathetic villains to appear yet. Frankly, they can even be considered more sympathetic than several of the ''heroic'' characters. * TalkingToHimself: Recoome and Jeice. * TrueCompanions * WhatMeasureIsAMook: Averted when Freeza tries to think of a way to break the news about their deaths to their respective families. !!!Captain Ginyu ->'''Voiced by:''' Antfish * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's the only member of the Ginyu Force to hold his own against Goku. * BattleButler: He would gladly polish Freeza's boots, if he wore any. * BerserkButton: Do not insult Captain Ginyu's [[SuperSentaiStance poses]]. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: More of a humorous case than anything else; he knows about the value of dodging, as well as having a dance specifically for the purpose to cheer up his very dangerous boss. * DeadpanSnarker: It doesn't happen very often, though he tends to get snide when things start to go badly. --> Jeice!

Yeah, he just does that sometimes. * EvenEvilHasStandards: Tries to hold a MomentOfSilence for his fallen comrades. [[KickTheDog Vegeta doesn't let him]]. * AFatherToHisMen: Unlike his [[{{Jerkass}} canon counterpart]], he genuinely cares for his teammates [[ButtMonkey (except Guldo)]], and is quite shocked when they're killed. * HappyDance: Ginyu is contractually obligated by King Cold to give the "Dance of Joy" after the completion of every successful mission. And Cooler required him to give the "Daddy's Little Princess Dance" after he does a successful mission for Freeza. And when he's alone, he does "The Dance of Solitude." And finally, he has the "Dance of Cheering You Up" for when Freeza gets upset. ** It's implied that there were several more dances that he was obligated to do off screen. * TheHero[=/=]TheBigBad[=/=]TheCaptain: Leader of the squad, it being named after him and all. * HeyItsThatVoice: Antfish uses his [[JojosBizarreAdventureAbridged Dio Brando]] voice (sans the TimCurry impersonation). * HypercompetentSidekick: Though Freeza is far from incompetent. * LargeHam: He is contractually obligated to perform "The Dance of Joy", as ordered by King Cold, and the "Daddy's Little Princess Dance", as ordered by [[JerkAss Cooler]], after each successful mission. He also does the "Dance of Solitude" when he's left alone and has nothing else to do. * NoodleIncident: "And if it's anything like that jockstrap incident, Ginyu probably buried them somewhere close by." * StealthHiBye: Pulls this on Vegeta twice. * TeamDad: Ginyu's behaviour comes surprisingly close to this. -->"Alright, gang, it's time for me to head off. Try not to mess up your uniforms and be back by 0500 hours!" * TrademarkFavoriteFood: Waldorf Salad. * UndyingLoyalty: Unlike Zarbon and Dodoria, Ginyu never considers going against Freeza's wishes. * WickedCultured !!!Burter ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * BerserkButton: Claiming that even Guldo is faster than him. * TheChick[=/=]TheDarkChick: Seemingly not very special, besides forming a yin/yang duo with Jeice. * ComicallyMissingThePoint: When Jeice asks for support, Burter starts complimenting him instead of aiding him in the fight. Still managed to cheer him up, though. * IJustWantToBeSpecial: Says this verbatim to explain his [[InformedAbility somewhat flimsy]] claim of being "the fastest in the universe", because without it, he's just "that big blue snake guy." ** And it's later revealed that this is why Ginyu had him on the team: a tall blue guy to balance out Jeice's short red guy. * InferioritySuperiorityComplex * MotorMouth * SmugSnake: Comes of as this at first about his supposed unrivaled speed, but it turns out he's actually a lot more insecure and self-critical than he first appears. * SssssnakeTalk * [[spoiler: StraightGay]]: According to Guldo.

Then things go bad. * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Jeice is genuinely dismayed at Burter getting curb stomped by Goku, and spends much of the episode Burter gets thrashed in cheering him up over his not being the fastest in the universe. * TheLancer / TheDragon: Reports directly to Ginyu. * LandDownunder: The FUNimation dub gave him an exaggerated Australian accent [[UnexplainedAccent for no real reason]] (especially since the original Ocean dub voice ChristopherSabat was imitating had been ''Liverpudlian''), but in this series it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because his home planet is [[SpaceX Space]] Australia (more specifically, he's from Space Brisbane. Go, Space Broncos!). * LongHairedPrettyBoy * OhCrap: After realizing Sayians get stronger when they recover from near death, and that Vegeta nearly died when fighting Recoome. -->'''Jeice:''' Well I'm right f[bleep]ked, aren't I?\\ '''Vegeta:''' [[PreMortemOneLiner Right in the down under]]. * TheReliableOne: Burter considers him the only one on the team that can be relied on. * StepfordSmiler: He gets very upset after Burter dies, but puts a lid on it when Ginyu demands him to be professional. * VerbalTic: The word 'mate' tends to appear a lot when he talks. !!!Recoome ->'''Voiced by:''' Ganxingba * {{Badass}} * TheBigGuy[=/=] TheBrute: Obviously. * BloodKnight * BoisterousBruiser: All the way. * BreadEggsMilkSquick: A list of the Recoome Memorabilia; Baseball hat, t-shirt, keychain, action figure, purse, jock strap, and vibrator. * CallingYourAttacks: Recoome's tendency to both do this and name all his moves after himself is canon (even "Recoome Eraser Gun", as of Kai), but, of course, it gets lampshaded. -->Recoome: RECOOOOOOME--\\ Krillin: Does every move you have start with--?\\ Recoome: KICK!

When the Ginyus were talking about the last time they [[ADateWithRosiePalms ...you know]], Recoome comments he didn't even have enough room in his pod. ** In episode 29, Guldo helps him up by pulling on his "middle leg". * HamToHamCombat: Has a minor one against Vegeta. * LargeHam: In keeping with the original series. Recoome takes it ''way'' past the source material, however, with his ProfessionalWrestling personality. * NoSell: "Silly Vegeta, the only thing the Recoome sells is merchandise" * ShoutOut: To HulkHogan specifically, but to ProfessionalWrestling as a whole. Mainly wrestlers from the AttitudeEra or shortly after, if not Hogan. ** His tendency to refer to himself in 3rd person also likely a reference to TheRock. * SimpletonVoice: Surprisingly averted with Recoome, who is instead professional wrestling personified. * TestosteronePoisoning * ThirdPersonPerson: Sounds good to Recoome! * WrestlerInAllOfUs !!King Cold ->'''Voiced by:''' Hbi2k * AbusiveParents: An (offscreen) conversation between Cooler and Goku hints at this.

He then goes to call Space AAA. ** Lessened somewhat when Freeza says that he can fly the ship, only for him to reply that they don't fly themselves, that being a job for their minions. * RageBreakingPoint: [[BlatantLies Wants nothing nefarious with Trunks' sword, just to inspect the craftsmanship and admire the temper.]] And test the edge out on him. * ShoutOut: His first appearance is one to the end of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', with Freeza as Vader and Cold as Palpatine. * SissyVillain * UpperClassTwit: "Son, we do not fly ourselves, flying is for the help!". * TranquilFury: Has an increasingly obvious one after [[spoiler:Future Trunks kills Freeza.]] !!Garlic Jr. ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Vegeta3986=] (''The Dead Zone Abridged''), [=KaiserNeko=] (Season 3) * BigBad: Of the Garlic Jr saga and the earlier ''Dead Zone Abridged''. ** [[spoiler: BigBadWannabe: In spite of the build up to the arc and his new threatening persona, he gets assimilated into Mr. Popo.]] * BullyingADragon: He mouths off to Popo, [[spoiler: which either gets him killed or suffer an AndIMustScream / FateWorseThanDeath punishment.]] * [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation: Arrives on Kami's Lookout along with his minions, and starts running his mouth... to '''Popo'''.

Yajirobe ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] -->''You gonna eat that Saiyan?

Including dead aliens. ** A DeletedScene reveals that he came to the battlefield because he smelled Yamcha's body cooking, and he even considered [[ImAHumanitarian eating it]].

He was a little peeved when Dende tacked on an entire planet, but rolled with it. * GoodCounterpart: To Shenron, although they act rather similar. Whereas Shenron is very jaded due to the same people taking up his time every year, Porunga is a bit more about mild passive aggression than flat out spite. * HumansAreUgly: His opinion of Earthlings. * LiteralGenie: You must be specific in your wishes to Porunga. * MundaneFantastic: He has a rather "Yeah, whatever," approach to this whole "giant wish-granting [[SpaceX Space Dragon]]" thing. * TalkingToHimself: With Dende. !!King Vegeta ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Among the Sayians.

(And Kakarot/Goku, but seeing how he was kinda dead at the time...) * MercyKill: Accepts the "sweet embrace of Death" upon having a vision of the future... and seeing the [[Anime/DragonBallGT Para Para Brothers]]. * MythologyGag: When showing two mooks how to "traumatize a village" in the credits, one of them calls Bardock a "brilliant scientist" and he also says he's planning to create an artificial moon. Both are referencing the early dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' by Ocean Group, which has Vegeta claiming Bardock did both despite having no basis in the original script. * PlayingAgainstType: Takahata101 as a sane character wherein he often plays a PsychoticManchild, whether the characters in question are the protagonist, VillainProtagonist, or antagonist. * PsychicPower: And they're [[UselessSuperpowers worthless]]. -->"Useless-ass psychic powers!" * SayMyName: "FREEZA!" * VillainProtagonist !!Bardock's crew ->'''Selypa voiced by:''' [=Whiteash001=] ->'''Pumbukin voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] ->'''Toma voiced by:''' Ganxingba ->'''Totepo voiced by:''' [=Kirbopher15=] * ButchLesbian: Selypa, or that's what [[JerkAss Bardock]] thinks. * ShipperOnDeck: Pumbukin suggests that Selypa's the mother of Bardock's kid.

Man voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * {{Bad|Santa}} MallSanta: Slay, as per the series norm, is this [[ExaggeratedTrope taken up to eleven]]. * BestialityIsDepraved: Reese was forever placed on Santa's Naughty List for raping Rudolph. * BlackComedyRape: Reese's rape of Rudolph, and Slay molested kids who sat on his lap (after killing one who had cancer). * CreepyMonotone: S.N.O.W. Man. * CreepyTwins: The Jinga Beru brothers. -->'''Beru:''' And then there's my brother and I!\\ '''Jinga:''' We were once elves working in Santa's workshop.\\ '''Beru:''' Until one of the robots we made to aid production ''went on a murderous rampage''.\\ '''S.N.O.W.Man:''' Falalalala, lalalala'''''DIE!''''' * DubNameChange: The Turles Crusher Corps in the series become the Misfit Minions, and the name changes don't stop there: ** Amond becomes Slay. ** Cacao becomes S.N.O.W. Man. ** Daiz becomes Reese. ** Lakasei and Rasin become the Jinga Beru Brothers. * FiveBadBand: ** BigBad: Turles. ** TheDragon: Slay. ** TheEvilGenius: The Jinga Beru Brothers. ** TheBrute: S.N.O.W Man. ** TheDarkChick: Reese. * FunWithAcronyms: S.N.O.W. Man[[note]]Sentient Non-Organic Work Manager[[/note]]. * LiteralGenie[=/=]JackassGenie: Slay straddles the line between the two. * ThemeNaming: The name changes give all of the Minions a Christmas link, although sometimes in a tangential way. !!Santa ->'''Voiced by:''' KyleHebert * TheCameo: KyleHebert, [[ThereWillBeBrawl bitches!]] * TheMessiah * TheReveal: [[spoiler: Santa always did try to visit Planet Vegeta, but the Saiyans kept trying to shoot him down.]] !!Icarus ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] * TheChewToy: Gohan's family won't stop eating him! * DeathByAdaptation: Three times, in fact. During the fight with Vegeta, Goku uses Icarus' death by explosion [[MotivationalLie to focus Oozaru Gohan on Vegeta]]. Then he gets eaten in ''Lord Slug Abridged'', and again in ''Revenge of Cooler'' (the end credits roll over a dragon-shaped skeleton in the latter). * DroppedABridgeOnHim: In ''Lord Slug'' he has a whopping ''one'' scene before Gohan's family ''eats him''. But... ** UnexplainedRecovery: He shows up again in ''The Revenge of Cooler''. Being non-canon has its perks. Goku eats him again at the end. * EarlyBirdCameo: His first appearance is in a flashback in episode 10, where he's shown tumbling away from an explosion (that apparently killed him). * EatTheDog: In ''Revenge of Cooler'', Goku calls Icarus his "emergency food". He makes good on that. * TheyKilledKenny: He has not survived one episode in his entire filmography. !!Lord Slug ->'''Voiced by:''' [=Takahata101=] * AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: His OneWingedAngel form. * BadBoss: "We go through soldiers like copy paper around here..." --> "You want us to find [the Dragon Balls] in an ''hour?!'' But it's hot as balls!" --> "Oh, brch, brch, brch..." * BerserkButton: ''Don't'' call him King Piccolo, or compare him to the same. * BigBad: Of ''Lord Slug'', appropriately enough. * EvilOldFolks: At first. He doesn't stay that way. Old that is. * EvilOverlord * EvilTwin / EnemyWithout: With Guru. [[spoiler: He's not one; ''Guru'' is ''his'']]. * GalacticConqueror * SenseFreak --> "My skin is so f**king smooth!" * SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To King Piccolo, [[BerserkButton much to his consternation]]. * TheUnintelligible: In his old form. ** IntelligibleUnintelligible: The characters can understand him just fine. * WeaksauceWeakness: Whistling, like all Namekians, it seems. !!Lord Slug's Minions ->'''Angira voiced by:''' Faulerro ->'''Doradabo voiced by:''' Shazmybot ->'''Medametcha voiced by:''' Sheldon Delano Killer * TheBrute: Dordabo. * DarkChick: Angira. * DepravedDwarf: Medematcha. * DumbMuscle: Doradabo. Hard. * LongHairedPrettyBoy: Angira. * QuirkyMiniBossSquad * RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Medematcha. -->'''Medematcha''': Oh, I don't give a sh#t what Christmas is now! I just know I'm going to kill it! And then my Minimatchas are going to rape it! * RefugeInAudacity: Most of Medematcha's dialogue. * SophisticatedAsHell: Angira when fighting Goku: -->'''Angira''': You little upstart prick! !!Cooler ->'''Voiced by:''' [=KaiserNeko=] (flashback in Season 2), General Ivan (''Revenge of Cooler'' onward) * AffablyEvil: Unlike Freeza, Cooler is actually pretty fine with chatting with Goku about their mutual loathing of his brother. Still trying to kill him, though. * AvengingTheVillain: The only reason he would be on Earth to kill Goku in the first place, however, it's obvious Cooler isn't doing it out of love for his little brother. * {{Badass}}: He's stronger than his brother, and gives Goku a sound thrashing before the latter turns Super Saiyan. * BenevolentBoss: Played to a lesser extent than in the original, where he seems to care for his minions. Here, he threatened to tie them to the bumper of his ship if Goku wasn't found dead. However, he ''does'' sign their paychecks, unlike Freeza, who considers payment to his minions to be allowing them to live. * BigBad: Of ''Revenge of Cooler'' ** BiggerBad: He was mentioned by Freeza and Ginyu a few times in season 2 (the latter saying he outranked Freeza), and is the most powerful member of the Cold family by far. He also cameoed in the Bardock special. * BlasphemousBoast: Gets one in, just like his brother, but he's more subtle about it. When Piccolo asks who Sauza's boss is, Cooler responds "That's "He", [[{{God}} with a capital H!]]" * CharacterizationMarchesOn: While we didn't get to see that much of his personality at the end of ''Bardock: Father of Goku'', what we did see was clearly very different from his ruthlessly competent incarnation in ''Revenge of Cooler''. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He absolutely ''refuses'' to believe Goku's dead until he sees a body, and doesn't hesitate to get involved at the slightest thought of his minions having trouble. ** Sauza also tells Neiz to recover Piccolo's body for Cooler, suggesting Cooler always wants a body after having someone killed. He apparently ties them to the bumper of his ship. ** Leads to DeathByGenreSavviness as he spends a lot of time near the end contemplating what he's going to do to avert his fate instead of actually averting his fate. * DeadpanSnarker: Cooler's a lot more casual about the whole "evil planetary overlord" thing than his brother, preferring offhand remarks to Freeza's ego-stroking one liners. * DeathByGenreSavviness: [[spoiler: He has a momentary lapse in judgement when Super Saiyan Goku starts to deflect his ultimate attack. Rather than fire another one and ensure victory, he just sits there gloating about how he could always just launch another one later. It gets him blasted into the sun.]] * EarlyBirdCameo: He briefly appears at the end of ''Bardock: Father of Goku''. * EvilIsPetty: Cooler lets baby Goku's space pod escape the destruction of Planet Vegeta just to spite his brother. Because, in his own words, "I'm a prick." ** Retconned in ''Revenge of Cooler Abridged'', where he states that if Freeza's going to whine to their dad for control of the sector, he'll have to accept the responsibility. If it comes back to bite him, it's his own fault. Naturally, Cooler called it. * EvilOverlord * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Invokes this in regards to Freeza. He could have destroyed Goku's pod on its way to Earth, but decided not to as a lesson to Freeza in responsibility. Then it turns out to be true for him, too. * InsistentTerminology: Cooler is a prick. * {{Irony}}: He let baby Goku live as a lesson to Freeza, only for Goku to kill them both. * {{Jerkass}}: According to Freeza. Oddly enough, he doesn't act like a douchebag in Revenge of Cooler. He treats his minions slightly nicer than Freeza and is AffablyEvil towards Goku. ** On the other hand, he did let Goku live to spite Freeza and ordered Ginyu to perform the "Daddy's Little Princess" dance to Freeza on every successful mission. So Freeza would be justifiable in calling him a prick, from his own perspective. * MotiveDecay: Compare with the original movie, he doesn't even give a reason as to why he wants to kill Goku. The only reason likely is that he wants to prove he's better than Freeza. ** He implies that he went after Goku simply because he was bored and thought it would be a good way to kill time. * NotSoDifferent: Realizes that in letting Goku escape and letting him just block his ultimate attack, he acted little different than his despised brother Freeza. But at least he's still cooler. * PunnyName: Goku makes a pun about it when they first meet. So does Salza, though he seemingly does it unintentionally. Even Cooler himself gets in on it during his demise. -->'''Cooler''': ''(while burning in the sun)'' I really am I just like my brother [...] but at least I know... I'm... still ...cooler.... ''(dies)'' * TheOtherDarrin: [=KaiserNeko=] decided not to reprise his role for ''Revenge of Cooler'' because he felt he couldn't give the character the proper "majesty", so TFS got [=GeneralIvanVA=] to play the role instead. * RatedMForManly: Unlike his [[SissyVillain Daddy Little Princess]] brother who comes from [[AmbiguousGender planet androgynous]] Cooler has a deep voice and a more masculine appearance. * ShoutOut: His super form sounds just like Bane from ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''. -->'''Cooler:''' When your planet is in ashes... then you have my permission to die. ** As he transforms into his super form: --->'''Cooler:''' [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Tonight I dine on monkey soup.]] *** CelebrityImpersonator: His transformed voice also brings Kevin Michael Richardson to mind. * SiblingRivalry: With Freeza. He instructed Captain Ginyu to perform the "Daddy's Little Princess Dance" after every successful mission for Freeza. ** When he prepares his planet-killing death ball, he pauses for a moment to ask Goku if Freeza did the same. When Goku confirms that he did, but used a smaller one (that also failed, but Goku didn't mention that), Cooler gloats and then throws the death ball. * SophisticatedAsHell: "IMMA PLANT ME A DUMBASS TREE!" * TheUnfavorite: He hints at this during an off-screen conversation with Goku. Though like his 'canon' self, he is a lot stronger than his brother (being the only member of his family who could defeat a Super Saiyan, just not the one he fought) and seemingly outranks him in the empire, so it's not known why. * WouldHurtAChild: -->'''Cooler (to Goku):''' Oh, is that your son? -->'''Goku:''' ...Yeaaah? -->'''Cooler:''' Imma kill it. !!Cooler's Armored Squadron ->'''Doore voiced by:''' [=XTheDarkOne=] ->'''Neiz voiced by:''' Lanipator ->'''Sauza voiced by:''' Antfish * ActorAllusion: To the Japanese version, where Zarbon and Sauza not only fill similar roles, but actually shared the same voice actor in Z (ShowHayami). * AssKickingPose * TheBrute: Doore. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While not nearly as savvy as Cooler[[note]][[NoOneCouldSurviveThat He immediately assumes Goku is dead just from getting shot in the back and falling over a waterfall]][[/note]], Sauza correctly assumes the bag of Senzu beans Gohan is carrying must be important because he's risking his life to protect it, and burns it accordingly. * TheDragon: Sauza. ** DragonTheirFeet: Sauza makes one last attempt to kill off Goku and company after Cooler is beaten. * DumbMuscle: Doore, though Piccolo stated that they're all stupid. * EarlyBirdCameo: Briefly appear alongside Cooler at the end of ''Bardock: Father of Goku''. * EveryoneIsRelated: Sauza is Jeice's cousin. * EvilBrit: Doore, though he's more of a Cockney-sounding thug than the usual posh villain. * FrenchJerk: Sauza. * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Neiz gets brought down by his own ShockAndAwe attack when he makes the mistake of getting close enough for Piccolo to reach him. -->'''Piccolo:''' Gotcha, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]! * QuirkyMiniBossSquad: Quite reminiscent of the Ginyu Force, as Goku points out. -->'''Goku:''' I am having the worst case of deja mustard[[note]]déjà vu[[/note]] right now. * SeeYouInHell: Suaza says this as his last words: -->'''Sauza:''' I will see you... in [[SpaceX Space Hell]]... Cousin Jeice. * ShownTheirWork: Details regarding Sauza appear to be derived from material originally published in ''Weekly Jump'' when the movie first came out in Japan. According to background materials from the actual film, Sauza's home planet is Cooler Planet 98 (formerly known as Planet ''Brench''), and he and Jeice come from the same binary star system. * TheUnintelligible: Neiz. !!Chilled -> '''Voiced by:''' Ganxingba * BigBad: For "Episode of Bardock". * CloudCuckooLander: He proclaims that [[MythologyGag all his men will be named after fruit and his elite warriors will have to learn dance choreography]]. ** When Bardock attacks him, instead of being angry that this worm dared to attack the great Lord Chilled, he's angry that Bardock wants to wrestle with him but didn't bring his leotard. * EvilIsHammy: His high pitched voice and CloudCuckooLander tendencies don't help. * EvilOverlord: Seems to run in the family. * LargeHam: Particularly when he's preparing to finish off Bardock. -->'''Chilled:''' And now yououou dieeeeeeeeeeeeeee! * LiteralMinded -->'''Bardock:''' You mad, bro? -->'''Chilled:''' A little! Thank you for asking! * SissyVillain: Maybe even more so then Zarbon. Also seems to run in the family. * TrrrillingRrrs * VocalDissonance: His voice is hilariously high-pitched and brings [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Mrs. Featherbottom]] to mind. * WouldHurtAChild: Again, seems to run in the family. !!People of Planet Plant [[spoiler:aka Primitive Saiyans]] -> '''Voiced by:''' Lanipator * BizarreAlienBiology: Bardock kicking one gets it pregnant. ** [[spoiler:They're a species that can only propagate through violence. Sounds exactly like a species that would evolve into the Saiyans.]] * CelebrityImpersonator: They all sound like [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit the Frog]]. * FunWithAcronyms: Their healing SPOUGE: "'''S'''uper '''Po'''lymorphic '''U'''nleashing '''Ge'''l". [[DontExplainTheJoke Which is pronounced the exact same way as the word]] [[InnocentInnuendo "spooge"]]. * PhraseCatcher: "No! None of that! Shame on you!" * ThemeNaming: They're named after famous rappers (Dr. Dre, Tupac, Ice Cube, etc.) [[/folder]] ----[[redirect:Characters/DragonBallZAbridged]]

* MythologyGag: When showing two mooks how to "traumatize a village" in the credits, one of them calls Bardock a "brilliant scientist" and he also says he's planning to create an artificial moon. Both are referencing the early dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' by Ocean Group, which has Vegeta claiming both despite having no basis in the original script.
