If your name is Krillin, go live under a rock. Otherwise, YOU WILL DIE. Though you WILL get resurrected and get a hot, loving blonde wife, so it kind of evens out.
If your name is Yamcha, go kill yourself. Because unlike Krillin, not only will you not get a hot, loving wife, but your long-term girlfriend will leave you for the genocidal maniac who murdered you and most of your friends. And then murders MORE people because he goes through a midlife crisis.
If your name is Hercule, do nothing. You'll live regardless of what you do and might eventually help save the world.
As of Super, Simply smacking away Goku's hand when he tries to shake your hand makes you insufferable, rude and unlikable. Never mind the fact that you're fighting to save your universe from getting erased so friendship between other universe is limited.
It doesn't matter how hard you work, if you're not the chosen one and a prodigy you'll never be good enough to be important and matter.
Hey kids, gluttony is the norm! You can eat as much as you can, but you'll never get fat!
Your daughter doesn't want to fight? It's fine, it's not like she'll turn Super Saiyan anyways.
Remember, women: you're only allowed to have a life of your own until you land a husband and have kids. After that, the entirety of your life must be devoted to them, so make sure to get all of that pesky martial arts training out of the way while you're still single!
If you've had a hard life, then it's your own fault and you deserve no sympathy from anybody.
Mothers/wifes should never have a say in their children's well-being. They will just come off as hateful, selfish, short-tempered, irrational cunts if they do. In the show's defense, it's Truth in Television in some cultures.
Let the Omnicidal Maniac go. Every time. Beat you to a pulp? Killed your friends right in front of you? Threatened to do the same to those who are left (including your own son) and your entire planet? Let him go. It just means you'll gain a powerful ally in the future. If not... Well, you can always kill him later.
Kidnapping small children and brutalizing them for months on end is a great way to earn their lifelong loyalty and friendship - and their parents', too!
When training said inexperienced children, always do so with LIVE FIRE EXERCISES. That way you have a good chance of killing them too. Dooooooooooooooooooooooodge!
Heritage determines everything important about you. If you're not born special, you're worthless.
If your name isn't Goku or Vegeta, you suck. And you can get away with anything.
Alternately: Humans suck. If you want to be worth anything, you have to be either an alien or have alien heritage, otherwise you're little more than a meat shield or a distraction.
It's okay to take a kid along on adventures that could kill you both, as long as the kid is strong enough to save your hide.
And don't bother considering their feelings. If they prefer homework to getting into fights, they're just being a pussy. Make sure you put the pressure on by telling them only they can defeat the overpowered Omnicidal Maniac and then throw the villain a Med Kit. Saving the world doesn't count if it isn't done through a fair one-on-one fight.
Also, never tell him until the last minute. You had planned on having him fight said villain.
Don't forget to scold said son because he wants to punish the villain instead of ending the fight quickly.
It's more than perfectly okay to let your child get tortured by the Big Bad. He will, in no way, develop a hostile grudge against you and attempt to kill you once he attains that higher power you kept talking about.
Remember, children, if you find some MacGuffins and wish hard enough, Grandpa can come back!
No, your goldfish didn't die, he went to another dimension. Right now he's training with his goldfish buddies.
If the creepy old hermit you're staying with is a lecherous pervert, he doesn't need to be reported to the authorities - just punch him in the face occasionally! True, he is an insanely powerful martial artist, hundreds of times stronger than you and could probably rape you without any effort whatsoever... just keep tolerating him, and I'm sure nothing bad will ever happen! it's not as if the only reason you've ever been able to defend yourself against him in the past is because he's never actually tried to defend himself is it...?
Constantly ogling and groping women will make you a Lovable Sex Maniac. No woman will be traumatized by your actions and see you as a sick person, not at all!
No matter what you do, your mother will think you're a monster.
To hell with knowledge and trying to lead a normal life. To hell with your wife and child's feelings about you being gone for the Nth time. All that matters is that you get to go off and do what you want to do.
Alien creatures who used to try and kill you are better at being fathers toward your children than yourself. So, kids! Feel free to go toward that angry guy that hates everyone, because he secretly likes you!
If you're yelling at your husband for wanting to take your child to fight life-threatening villains instead of getting an education and living like any regular child, you're just a bitch.
The green monster who kidnapped your son and killed your husband should automatically get your respect, simply because your son respects and admires him. Also, the guy who broke all of your husband's bones and harmed your son should get your respect as well.
When you've so terrified and abused your family to the point of submission just to make you happy and place your first son's studies unreasonably over the welfare of your husband and second child, that makes you a good wife and mother.
When you claim to value logic and common sense, displaying overemotional stubbornness makes you reasonable.
Also, when people band together to risk their own lives to save the planet, sacrificing their own safety and personal comfort to protect billions of lives who will never even know who rescued them, they are bad guys who belong in a gang.
Being a fighter is way better than being an educated scholar. You're not worth anything if you aren't a strong fighter.
If your son would rather be a scholar than fighter, something is definitely wrong with him.
If your son wants to go on a date the same day of the world tournament is on, that's not right, you should force him to cancel immediately.
Being strong is more important than family. A kid you fought in a tournament has potential to become a strong fighter, so you should go tell your wife and granddaughter to go "fuck themselves" and go train that kid somewhere far away.
How to never die: all you have to do is take all the credit for saving the world and people would forsake their exponentially stronger 7 year-old son and his 8 year-old friend also the even stronger 18 year old son to save your worthless ass.
Even if you’re potentially stronger than the Omnicidal Maniac while fused, NEVER take the fight seriously. Despite the fact he killed your wives/mothers and absorbed your sons.
Ladies, just keep stalking and acting rude to a guy you have a crush on. He'll just fall for you in return.
Just like in Star Wars, you can be the second baddest person in the galaxy, cause untold suffering and pain, yet sacrificing your life to save your family puts you on the side of good.
Having a mid-life crisis? Just kill several dozen people, sell yourself into slavery, and turn on your rival-turned-friend when the fate of the world is at stake, because getting a new car is so overrated.
Saving the world comes secondary, behind meaningless squabbles and facing your adversary at their best.
Pure-hearted means be kind to everyone… who's not your family.
Have a plan of luring out the Arc Villain. Use a powerful but innocent bystander as bait. Don't worry , at you can heal him!
If you want to fight deadly cyborgs, that a Kid from the Future told you that they created a hellish future where your son and friends are dead, ignore your friend's suggestion to find and stop the Mad Scientist from making them.
If you're strong enough to defeat the Big Bad, hide that fact from everyone and entrust the fate of the universe to two bratty children.
Toddlers who freak out about being kidnapped by their evil relatives and then getting kidnapped again by the demon king are big wusses who need to toughen up.
Is your kid going on a moody rampage? Or was, and you don't want it to happen again? Rip one of their fucking limbs off. That'll make 'em settle down.
If your dragon rises up out of your balls, then the panties will appear as soon as you ask for them.
Is your girlfriend too strong and independent? Does she want to fight alongside you? Don't worry, all she needs to do is get the crap beaten out of her at the tournament. After that, she'll be a lot more subservient. That's what she gets for not surrendering.
On that note, being The Determinator is always a good thing, unless your allies are stronger than you. In that case, you should just give up and leave it to your stronger allies to fight instead.
If you act like a total bitch, almost getting killed in a tournament is very good karma for you.
When forced to choose between saving your own family and friends and protecting the lives of a fraud and a kid you barely met, let your kids rot.
When you are fully aware of the location of the source of danger to your friends and acquaintances, don't tell them, come up with an alternate solution, and when that fails, lay the blame on their door for when things go wrong.
Bullying and abusing your Kid from the Future and regretting it the last minute automatically makes you a good parent.
Being a total jerk to your Butt-Monkey/Nice Guy boyfriend and treating him as The Unfair Sex is forgivable and should be ignored. However, ignoring your husband to make sure your son is okay only once makes you the unforgivable devil from hell.
When you see your husband kill thousands of people, it's perfectly normal to act surprised and think he would never do such a thing, despite him being a former threat to the Earth and injuring/killing your friends.
Its also a good idea to stay married to said husband after all that because...reasons?
If you still hold a grudge against a green monster who was once a threat to your former fiance (and everybody else's) life, it's your own fault for not loosening up.
Have a bratty child that's difficult to raise? Just drop the kid down a ravine. The brain damage will make them a good kid.
When everyone else is either else is either afraid or outright hates you, your best and only friend in the world is literally yourself. Even if you live under different circumstances, always trust your Alternate Self to always stick by your back.
If you manage to ring out the last competitors and you know that the universe will be obliterated. However, it's not your fault. So feel free to glare angrily.
