Re: Names, I'd rather a compromise. My personal tastes besides, I think some of the dub terms are helpful or at least will let *most* people reading get it without having to look things up (like Special Beam Cannon as opposed to Makankosappo) while some things are direct translations/differences in romanization (Wolf Fang Fist and Rogafufuken, and Boo/Buu), and the dub names for the different forms of Majin Boo also are helpful, since there's no other agreed upon terms there.

There's no way to please everyone, but considering you can get into the series via the Manga (which has translation differences from the dub and subtitle track), via subs whether you're a Subtitle-only anime watcher or deaf (there are no dubtitles as far as I know; so if you're deaf and wanting to watch DB, you'll be doing so via Funi's subtitles anyway, as well as Funi's dub.)

I'm really bad at talking, forgive my long post... basically:

Making Freeza the preferred and consistent spelling wouldn't confuse people (and it would save a lot of spelling errors in the long run), meanwhile Rogafufuken, Makankosappo and Djinn Boo probably would.

I propose going with the Funimation Subtitles first and foremost, saving dub names for stuff people would have an easier time recognizing such as attacks and such.

What say anyone to standardizing the names to the Funimation dub? They're the license-holders and produced the version most recognizable to English-speaking audiences. Some quick notes on alternate spellings should be sufficient to keep everyone happy.

I think Bardock should be moved to Main Characters, especially now that he has his own spinoff.

Are Vegeta and Buu from DBZ karma houdinis? Before the story both were responsible for destroying who knows how many planets of populated beings without a shred of remorse. In the series itself Vegeta slew a bunch of Nameks and bragged out it later. He abandoned his son for the early part his life willingly. Against Cell he allowed Cell to achieve his perfect form and he allowed himself to be controlled by an evil magician to have the power to satisfy his pride. Yet, after the Frieza saga no one ever really calls him out on any of his crap or about how he had killed who knows how many without a shred of remorse. Does his heel face turn somehow protect him or does his past and getting the crap beat out of him numerous times count as Karma?

Pretty much the same with Buu. Does the fact Evil Buu is insane to begin wtih and later killed and Fat Buu is pretty much naively innocent make Buu not a karma houdini?

The folders are broken for some reason. Can anyone fix it?

Where'd all the Complete Monster refferences go? I know it's a subjective trope, but come on. Some of these villains are nothing but iredeemably evil.

Doesn't matter. Complete Monster doesn't go on works pages anymore, that's the rule.

What are works pages?

Pages for works. Shows, movies, books, video games are all works.

Really, b/c there are some works pages which still feature the Complete Monster Trope.

That just means nobody's gotten around to taking them out yet.

Could we please pick a spelling for the names and stick with it. Most of the edits here are changing the names back and forth!

  • Cute Shotaro Boy: Fangirls screech over how cuddly and cute he is back in the 1990's.

Cute Shotaro Boy not means "cuddly boy",but "boy preocupped with responsability and duty". His father is a really best example.
