It shits all over the narrative plot of Namek saga, arguably the greatest arc in Dragon Ball.

The entire point of Namek saga was Freiza, the intergalactic emperor and the most powerful being getting defeated by the very thing he always feared, a Super Saiyan. A legacy which comes true once after a thousand years. In a race otherwise so weak that they are completely dominated by freiza and derided as mere "monkeys".

But the real narrative genius was that the Super Saiyan turned out to be, not some Saiyan prince or great Saiyan warrior of repute but a Saiyan so weak that he slipped right under Freiza's genocidal radar. So weak that his own race abandoned him only for him to abandon the genocidal ways of his race, making him the least Saiyan-like saiyan. And after his race is gone he comes back to fulfill his destiny and take revenge. This is what made this arc a notch above all others.

But then Broly comes along and shits all over it. Turns out Goku is not the legendary super saiayan, but some regular super saiyan? And the legendary super saiyan is so dumb his entire motivation boils down to Goku annoying him as a baby. AS A BABY. AS A FUCKING BABY. Total bullshit if you ask me.

Planetary Trade Organization = more shady interstellar version of the World Trade Organization

Tbh it made for a great complete plot line @Dregster666

Broly is filler imo but because of lookist halo is inescapable and eclipses even Cell and Majiin Buu among the dbz fanbase.
Lookism and dark triad worship are everywhere @K9Otaku

Lord Frieza, head of the planetary trade organization.
Genocides entire peoples to empty out planets and sell them to the highest bidder. By coincidence found out that there were dragon balls on Namek that could grant eternal life. Didn't expect to meet and be defeated by Bardock's son Goku.

cope. Broly is one of those characters made just for the movies to have a bit more weight to it, like Super Shredder. I regard the normal TV episodes as a separate thing

I like him mainly cause he is a credible rival to Goku, unlike Vegeta.

It means so much more as an adult who knows about the struggles in the world and the history of these struggles than it did even as a kid, and I still felt like the Namek Saga was a fucking religious story when I was a kid. The scenes where Vegata dies while telling Goku to fight and when Goku goes Super Saiyan are peak gamers rise up kino,

Wouldn't other saiyans achieving super saiyan in the canon saga also invalidate the frieza arc?

Yes it does. That's why it stung a little when everyone started turning super saiyan in cell arc. Especially gohan. But I accepted it thinking every saiyan has that potential.

Then fetuses started turning SS in buu arc and I said fuck it.

Namek arc by itself is still the best though.

It worked well for its time and target audience. And though its not as nuanced as others its still a decent power fantasy show

Broly goes from being weaker than base goku to being stronger than super saiyan God in a few hours.

Dragon ball is a joke of a series.

Serious @Broly as a concept is dumb stupid as fuck​

It shits all over the narrative plot of @Diocel saga, arguably the greatest arc in Dragon Ball.

The entire point of Namek saga was @Idotms, the intergalactic emperor and the most powerful being getting defeated by the very thing he always feared, a Super Saiyan. A legacy which comes true once after a thousand years. In a race otherwise so weak that they are completely dominated by freiza and derided as mere "monkeys".

But the real narrative genius was that the Super Saiyan turned out to be, not some Saiyan prince or great Saiyan warrior of repute but a Saiyan so weak that he slipped right under Freiza's genocidal radar. So weak that his own race abandoned him only for him to abandon the genocidal ways of his race, making him the least Saiyan-like saiyan. And after his race is gone he comes back to fulfill his destiny and take revenge. This is what made this arc a notch above all others.
