YMMV / Dragon Ball Origins

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: From Origins 2: Boss Theme 1Boss Theme 2Intro
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Goku meeting his dead grandfather.
  • Goddamned Bats: Centipedes & Frogs in the first game.
  • Jerkass Woobie: The games will make you feel really bad for Pilaf and his constant failures over being unable to beat Goku and realize his dream of World Domination.
  • Nintendo Hard: Doing the higher levels of the survival tower alone in the sequel. Especially if you do it with Bulma who is not well equipped for tough boss battles.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: The first game had a setup where certain levels paired you up with Bulma who had her own AI. If you didn't save beforehand and she dies you would have to restart from the beginning of the level.
    • Also the first game had puzzles that involved using Goku's spinning ability to transfer elements from certain pedestals to other pedestals to open certain doors. Getting hit or touching a wall while doing this forced you to do this over again.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Origins 2.
  • That One Attack: In Origins 1 "Monster Carrot" chases Goku at certain points in his boss fight and if he touches you it results in a One-Hit Kill.
  • That One Boss: In Origins 1: Oolong,Monster Carrot,Pilaf, & Master Roshi
    • In Origins 2: General Blue (as Arale),Goku (as Arale),Arale(as Goku),Major Metallitron (as Arale),Master Roshi(as Krillen & Yamcha).
  • That One Level: Almost every level in Origins 1 due in no short part to copious amounts of backtracking with some Puzzle Switches.
