Dragon Ball Z Abridged:

 4826 sockpuppet 1, Sat, 28th Sep '13 2:51:46 PM Relationship Status: Non-Canon
1. Never happened in the manga

2. Goku was referring to the fact Vegeta crushed the Potara, not that Buu's body would prevent them from fusing. Buu already knew about the latter.

yeah Super Buu assumed he had fully absorbed the two, he even expected to transform again

I found weird that Team Four Star never did a preview video for Death Battle like That Ramdon Guy did.

What you guys think Abridged Goku would had said to being, eh, destroyed along the earth?
I have Captain America as a Pokemon, your argument is invalid.
In hindsight it makes sense for Fourstar to not do anything for the Death Battle. Why would they if Goku is the one who loses?

"Hey guys, Goku here! Watch me get my ass kicked on Death Battle!"

Did they do anything for Vegeta vs. Shadow? (I still find that a ridiculously lopsided matchup)

It basically went how you'd imagine. Super Shadow is invulnerable, and therefore capable of surviving, but it also has a time limit and doesn't hit hard enough to take Vegata down, so Shadow died as soon as his super form wore off.
Welp, sig's different now.

One thing I wonder:

Super Shadow can breathe in space. Vegeta cannot. Shadow can teleport things.

He really could have won that fight, I think.
I have a message from another time...
He teleported Vegeta to the moon, and he somehow survived.

[up][up][up][up][up] Super Shadow/Sonic (can't remember which) defeated someone who could destroy the multiverse. Vegeta ain't got shit on that. Notice how the DB guys didn't actually look at any of Super Sonic's feats OR Vegeta's, just saying "well Vegeta generally can take a beating, so that means he can take this one too"?

Who, Solaris? That was a team effort, involving three super-form hedgehogs.

Shadow's greatest solo effort was taking out Black Doom and teleporting the entire Black Comet into space, within Eclipse Cannon range.

How was it possible for Gero to absorb Yamcha's energy WITHOUT any ill effects? I mean it's Yamcha for crying out loud.

Vegeta's Super Saiyan status seems to be a major turn-on for him, considering he plans to stand in front of a full-length mirror, strip down and watch himself turn Super Saiyan...

So, uh....does anyone else find the "Goku is a shitty father" subplot to be just....awkward?

Not really. He is.

Seriously, no matter what Saiga or someone else tells you, it's pretty much canon. He abandons his family to go work out, and the series ended with him running off with some stranger's kid.

When he died to Cell, he spent seven years without so much as a phone call to his wife. He didn't even know he had another son until he came back for a martial arts tournament, because he didn't bother to pat King Kai on the back to see how his wife was doing.

See, I never bought that. Sure, Goku's not a traditional, Western idea of a great dad, but it's not like he openly neglects or outright hates his family. I think the problem is that we try to look at Goku through a normal lens, when Goku himself is anything but normal.

Let's consider Goku's life. He spent his early years training with his Grandfather out in the middle of nowhere, which is the time that he bonded with his grandfather. Similarly, that's how he made friends with Roshi and Krillin. So for Goku, training is a way of bonding, and that's why he wants to train with Gohan as often as he does, because it's the only way he knows how to connect with his son. Secondly, Goku spends almost his entire life traveling the world, going on adventures, fighting monsters, learning martial arts, and getting involved in tournaments. Does this seem like a man who had time to go to school, or learn social niceties, or even understand what romance or courtship is? He just tries his best to do well by the family he has.

Now, something a lot of people say is that Goku doesn't love his family. Horseshit. If Goku didn't love his family, why would he have stuck around them? Why would he have felt obligated to stay with Chi-Chi for so long? Food? Judging from all the times Goku jumps into lakes and pulls out giant fish, the man can take care of himself. Goku's not cold or callous or completely emotionless. He loves his family. Yeah, sure, most of the examples of Goku loving Chi-Chi or Gohan are in the anime, but fuck it, if it doesn't contradict what happens in the manga, the anime counts. I think the most telling fact of how Goku loves his family is the fact that he let Gohan go to school. Think about it, if Goku really wanted Gohan to just stay home and train with him all the time, how in the world could Chi-Chi stop him? But Goku knows that he doesn't really know what he's doing with children, at least not as well as Chi-Chi seems to. And if Chi-Chi decides School is what's best? Then School is what's best. Sure, he wanted Gohan to stop his studies for three years so he could train with him and Piccolo, buuut there were future-Robots coming to kill them all, so I think that took precedent.

tl;dr, I never saw any real evidence for Goku being a terrible father when I watched the show.

Now leave me to my books.
The way I see it, Goku's a great guy, but he's just terrible at parenting. He loves his family, sure, he just seems to have... skewed priorities.

That's pretty much it, Xion. Honestly, his priorities are so warped that if his family gets a "hey, I missed you, but didn't bother to come home".

Okay, after he was with Chichi and Gohan for years, he had the Raditz fight. Died. Worked out for a year. Fought Vegeta. Worked out. Went to Namek. Was offered to be teleported home. Said "I'll go back later." Two years later, he comes back. Fights some dudes and trains for a couple years. Spends two episodes of family time (the driving one, and the one that was meant to be quiet family time). Dies to Cell. Spends seven years fighting guys and not bothering to call home. Comes back for a day for a fighting tournament. Fights some guys and saves the world. Abducts a child to train him for the rest of canon.
