Since the Metal Coolers are clones and subordinates of the original Cooler, I decided to put them as separate characters.

Regarding the change from "Bills" to "Beers", I cite the following articles for reference:



Although technically "Virus" would be more accurate and more in keeping with the scriptwriter's original intent, since Shueisha ultimately decided to go with "Beers" in their promotional materials, "Beers" being far more appropriate for the revised portrayal of the character, and for the sake of uniformity with "Whis" I suggest that we stick with "Beers".

I think we should just stick to Bills. It's much more identifiable than "Beers". On the DBZ Wiki, it's listed as Bills and Beers is an alternate name. For the sake of identification, I say Bills.

Also, no offence, but why did you just change the name without any previous discussion?

The DB wiki is an unofficial source and often prone to erroneous information and fan terminology. "Bills" is an unofficial fan name (much like "Mystic Gohan") before the etymology of Birusu was established by Word of God, who themselves state that it's either "Virus" or "Beers", with the latter name being the preffered choice in the promotional and supplemental materials (in particular the theatre program).

Where are Salza, Sangya and other minor villains from the movies? Hey, if they manage to get in some videogame, they deserve a character sheet.

I truly agree. In fact, I'm going to put them in right now.
